Florida forgave $124.2 million in taxes and fines


The Associated Press

TALLAHASSEE, Fla.
- For the third year in a
row, Florida is giving up on
collecting more than $100
million in taxes, fees and
fines owed the state.
But the amount of
money the state is
walking away from contin-
ues to grow. Data released
this past month shows
that the state forgave
$124.2 million in the
fiscal year that ended June
30.
Florida in 2011 wrote off
$110.5 million as uncol-
lectable, while the number
was more than $109 mil-
lion the year before.
The overall amount of
money that Florida is los-
ing is small compared with
the size of the state's annu-
al $70 billion budget. But
the failure to collect the
money comes amid year
after year of state budget
cuts.
State Sen. Joe Negron,
R-Stuart and the new
Senate budget chief, said
even though the amount
is small he still wants the
Legislature to re-examine
whether the state is' doing
enough to collect money it
is owed.
"We want to be circum-
spect and prudent with
every dollar we-have avail-
able to us in the state bud-
get," Negron said. "We'll
take a fresh look at that


number and see if there is
any possibility of reducing
that amount."
A large portion nearly
$37 million that was
written off by state officials
was unpaid taxes, includ-
ing sales taxes, corporate
income taxes and unem-
ployment taxes.
A breakdown provided
by the Department of
Revenue shows that $15.4
million that was forgiven
was sales taxes owed by
businesses. Stores and
other businesses are re-
quired to collect and then
hand over the state's 6 per-
cent sales tax.
The agency also forgave
$13.4 million in unpaid
income taxes from corpo-
rations.
This year the state
also closed the books on
trying to collect back
nearly $30.7 million that
was overpaid to people
receiving unemployment
compensation checks.
These overpayments were
made when the state's
jobless rate was rising be-
tween the years of 2006
and 2009.
James Miller, a spokes-
man with the Depart-
ment of Economic Op-
portunity, pointed out
that the amount of money
written off represents just
1.3 percent of the uhem-
ployment compensation
benefits the state was pay-
ing annually.

BP PLC has estimated

stakeholders," com-
pany spokesman Scott
Dean said in a statement
emailed to The Associated
Press. "Today's decision
by the Court is another
important step forward for
BP in meeting its com-
mitment to economic and
environmental restoration
efforts in the Gulf and in
eliminating legal risk fac-
ing the company."
A statement from plain-
tiffs' attorneys Steve Her-
man and Jim Roy praised
the settlement program's
administrator, Pat Juneau.
"This settlement has
- and will continue to
- bring the people and
businesses of the Gulf the
relief they deserve," the
attorneys wrote.
The April 2010 blowout
of BP's Macondo well trig-
gered an explosion that
killed 11 rig workers and
spewed out more than
200 million gallons of oil,
closing much of the Gulf
for months to commercial
and recreational fishing
and shrimping.
There is still alot of
litigation left, including a
trial to identify the causes
of BP's blowout and assign
percentages of fault to
the companies involved,
Barbier wrote. That trial is
scheduled next year.

Wood stork nesting in

Florida still declining


The Associated Press
-' NAPLES -The popula-
Stionofwood
storks may be rebound-
ing, but that doesn't
mean they're returning to
nesting sites in.southwest
Florida.
The Corkscrew Swamp
Sanctuary in northern
Collier County was the
largest nesting site for
wood storks in all of
North America until about
six years ago. As their
shallow wetland habitat
continues to decline, the
birds are forced to find
other places to nest,.
said Jason Lauritsen, the
sanctuary's executive
director.
Nesting-populations
in Georgia andNorth
Carolina, where the birds
once rarely nested, are
booming.
"There is a stark contrast
between what we saw
years ago to what's being
seen in Georgia and North
Carolina now because
there was virtually no
nesting there at all. Before,
they only summered
there. They're responding
to a lack of opportunity in
their home base," Laurit-
sen tells the Naples Daily
News.
There isn't enough
information, however, to
know yet if the fledglings
will be as successful long-,
term being raised farther
north as they were in their
natural southern habitat,
he said.
"It's important to focus
"on the Everglades,"


Lauritsen said.
Last week, the U.S. Fish
andWildlife Service said
the population ofwood
, storks had rebounded to
the point that they can be
classified as threatened
instead of endangered.
The proposed'change
wouldn't remove any pro-
tections for the bird, and
it still requires a public
comment period following
publication in the Federal
Register. That could take
about a year.
Leaders of the National
Audubon Society, which
operates Corkscrew sanc-
tuary, warn that the reclas-
sification and the changes
in nesting patterns aren't
good for the South Florida
ecosystem.
"What would help.would
be better regulatory con-
trols," Lauritsen said.
Those regulatory
controls should need to
include a change in South
Florida in building mitiga-
tion plans required by the
government, he said.
Currently, mitigation
plans call for replacing
wetlands, but Lauritsen
said shallow wetlands,
the habitat for wood
Sstorks, aren't being
restored as quickly and
frequently as the deep
wetlands.
The wood stork was
first listed as endangered
in 1984. Federal wildlife
officials said the number
of nesting pairs during the
past 10 years has ranged
annually from 7,086 to
8,996- above the 6,000
threshold necessary for
reclassifying the bird.

"This is a positive
development, but my
focus remains on holding
BP and the other defen-
dants accountable for the
extraordinary economic
and environmental dam-
age inflicted on Alabama,"
said Alabama Attorney
General Luther Strange
in a statement. "I look
forward to going to trial in
February."
Barbier said the
settlement averts wor-
ries that litigation could
continue for 15 to 20
years, as it did after the
ExxonValdez and Amoco
Cadiz oil spills, creating
a secondary disaster for
those affected.
Barbier has not ruled
on a medical settlement
for cleanup workers and
others who say exposure
to oil or dispersants made
them sick.
BP has already begun
paying claims before the
law required it, and is
doing so "in an impressive
fashion," Barbier wrote.
He said the claims center
processed 4,500 claims a
week in November and
has authorized nearly $1.4
billion in payments, and
BP also has paid about
$405 million on nearly
16,000 claims during a
transitional process that
ended June 4.
Barbier noted that law-
yers' fees won't come out
of settlements: BP agreed
to pay them separately

Anne Spillane, 51, of San-
dy Hook, drove some of the
band members, including
her daughter. She said the
brother of one band mem-
ber was killed in the shoot-
ing. He was one of several
victims the Sillane family
knew.
She said she and others in
, town have been buoyed by
the outpouring of support.
A family that lives about
three hours away in New
Bedford, Mass., came Sat-
urday. with a life-sized
Santa, Claus, that held a
scroll with the names of all
the victims engraved on it,
Sillane said.
And a police officer from.
New Britain gave her a box
of homemade Christmas
ornaments with the names
of each victim on them,
Sillane said.
"I gave those, to our
monsignor, and he's going
to give them to the fami-
lies," she said. "People are
just so good. We under-,
stand. They just want to do
something."

NEWTOWN, Conn. -
The Sandy Hook section
of Newtown was a gather-
ing place -this weekend for
hundreds of people drawn
to the scene of the recent
massacre to share in the
community's mourning
and come to terms with the
shocking school tragedy.
The village's downtown
was clogged with traffic
Sunday, with license plates
from all across; New Eng-
land and beyond.
Residents across New-
town, meanwhile, were
seeking to move forward
through faith, community
and a. determination to
seize their future. Many
have taken advantage of
counseling services.
Both groups are trying
in their own way to, cope
with the puzzling Dec. 14
massacre at Sandy Hook
Elementary School that
took the lives of 20 chil-
' dren and six adults. Police
say the gunman killed his
mother before heading to
the schooland committed
suicide afterward.
People with bouquets of
flowers, teddy bears and
cameras walked along the
closed road to the make-
shift memorial near the
school. Mark Burkhart
brought his wife and
daughter from Wmgdale,
N.Y., to pay their respects.
"We felt we had to come
here-to grieve a little bit,"
he said. "You find your-
self not sure what to do or
what to say, so this kind of
helps."
Connor Collier, 21, of
Newtown, aid visitors
earlier in the week were
mostly with the media. But
that changed during the
weekend to "just regular
people" from as far away
as Washington .State and
Florida.
"Frankly, I like this a lot
better. Everybody wants to

spent the past week near
the village Christmas tree
selling green and' white
bracelets that read, "Angels
of Sandy Hook." He said
he has raised $40,000 for
a fund established for the
victims.

Robert Frost's Christmas cards collected in NH


The Associated Press

HANOVER, N.H.-Take
heart, holiday procrasti-
nators:, Famed poet Rob-'
ert Frost once waited until
July to get his Christmas
cards in the mail.
Unlike the flimsy, forget-
table cards of today,
however, Frost's cards
arguably were worth the
wait. For the past 28 years
of his life, he teamed up
with a boutique printer to
send beautifully illus-
trated booklets featuring
a different poem for each
year.
Dartmouth College,
which Frost briefly
attended as a student
and later returned as a
lecturer, has collected
more than 500 of the
cards, including the
first installment, which
was sent without Frost's
knowledge.
In 1929, Joseph
Blumenthal of the New
York-based Spiral Press,
who was setting type
for one of Frost's poetry
collections, decided the
poem "Christmas Trees"
would make an attrac-
tive greeting card. With
permission from Frost's
publisher, he printed'
275 copies, one of which
eventually made its way
to Frost. The poet liked it
so much, he decided to
collaborate with Blumen-

In this photo provided by Dartmouth College, one of
Robert Frost's Christmas cards is seen. Famed poet Frost once
waited until July to send his Christmas cards


thai on cards starting in
1934. The resulting series
lasted until 1962, the year
before his death.
"It was one of the more
fun things about him,"
said Frost.biographer
JayParini, a professor at
Vermont's Middlebury
College. He called theI :
cards a "remarkable tradi-
tion" that's carried out by


other poets today.
Many of Frost's
cards feature woodcut
illustrations evoking the
New England landscape
with which he was so
deeply associated.
Printed on heavy
cardstock, some runim
to 10 or 15 pages. The
1942 card included a
hand-colored illustration


of a country village and
the poem "The Gift Out-
right," which Frost, who
won four
Pulitzer Prizes for poetry,
later recited from memory
at the inauguration
Sof President John E
Kennedy.
Many in the Dartmouth
collection were sent to
Frost's close friend and
editor Edward Lathem,
whose nearly six decades
of work at the Ivy League
school included a long
stint as head librarian.
In 1959, the card'
featured a previously
unpublished poem called
"A-WishingWell," and
on Lathem's copy, Frost
inserted two hand-written
lines in the poem.
Parini said that was
not unusual for Frost,
who often inscribed first
editions of his books with
little notes for his friends,
or sometimes even
complete, unpublished
poems.
"He liked to personalize
things," he said.

Afghan policewoman kills US adviser in Kabul


The Associated Press

KABUL, Afghanistan -
An Afghan policewoman
Shot and killed an Ameri-
can. adviser outside the
police headquarters in Ka-
bul on-Monday, the latest
in a rising tide of insider
attacks by Afghans against
their foreign allies, senior
Afghan officials said.
The killing of the Ameri-
can, who worked as a
contractor with the NATO
command, was the first
known insider attack by a
woman in Afghanistan.
The woman, identified.
as Afghan police Sgt. Nar-
gas, had entered a strate-
gic compound in the heart
of the capital and shot
the civilian adviser with
a pistol as he came out of
a small shop with articles
he had just bought, Ka-
bul Governor Abdul Jabar
Taqwa told The Associated
Press.
Earlier, she had 'asked
bystanders where the
governor's office was lo-
cated, the governor said.
As many Afghans, the po-
licewoman uses only one
name.
The policewoman was

shortly after the attack
but Interior Ministry
spokesman Sediq Sediqi
said that she refused to an-
swer questions after hours
of interrogation aimed at
determining her motives
for the killing. .
Sediqi said the assail-
ant shot only once, strik-
ing the American in the
side of the chest. He died
either on the way or just
upon arrival at a hospital,
the spokesman added, de-
scribing her act as a "huge
crime."
A NATO command
spokesman, U.S. Air Force
Lt. Col. Lester T. Carroll,
said the slain adviser was


a contractor whose iden-
tity wasn't immediately
released. "We can confirm
that a civilian police ad-
viser was shot and killed
this morning by a suspect-
ed member of the Afghan
uniformed police," Carroll
said.
The attack occurred out-
side the police headquar-
ters in a walled, highly
secure compound which
also houses the governor's
office, courts and a prison.
Kabul Deputy Police Chief
Mohammad Daoud Amin
said an investigation was
under way.
Nargas, a mother of four,
had worked with a human


rights department of the
police for two years and
had earlier been a refugee
in Pakistan and Iran, Amin
said.
She could enter the
compound, armed be-
cause as a police officer
she was licensed to carry
a pistol, the police official
said. Amin did not know
whether the killer and vic-
tim wer6 acquainted.
"Her background is very
clean. We don't see that
she. -had any connection
with armed insurgent
groups," Sediqi said. He
added that she aroused
no suspicion because she
frequently went back and
forth on business between
the compound and the In-
terior Ministry where she
worked.
Canadian Brig. Gen.
John C. Madower, a com-
mand spokesman in Ka-
bul, called the incident
"a very, sad occasion"
and said his "prayers are
with the loved ones of the
deceased."

In one of his 1953
cards, he explained
why the poem "Does
No One at All But Me
Ever Feel This Way in
the Least?" was post-
marked July instead of
December.
"This Christmas
poem, though not
isolationist, is so danger-
ously isolationist, it was
thought better to send it
out for Independence Day
instead of Christmas," he
wrote.
Sending such a tardy
greeting also was in
keeping with Frost's
personality, Parini said.
"He never lost an oppor-
tunity. to make a splash,"
he said.
From an initial print
run of 775 cards in 1934,
the number of cards
produced grew to more
than 17,000 in 1962. Some
have been snatchedup
by collectors for $4,000 to
$51000, said Steve Smith,

Brelove leads Lady Tigers. past Sneads


BY DUSTIN KENT
dkentBjcfloildan,co'i

Guirteemia Brelove scored 27
points and the Malone Lady
Tigers held off a game Sneads
team to earn a 56-47 victory
on Saturday afternoon in the
Grand Ridge Christmas Classic.
It was the fourth straight
win for the Lady Tigers, who
improved to 11-4 on the year,
while the Lady Pirates had their
eight-game winning streak
snapped and fell to 9-3.


Nrltad..l led 30-27 at halftime,
but Malone regained control in
the third to take a 43-39 advan-
I:tg' iflo ilthe final period.
I hlie L.iidyTigers closed out the
game strong in the final period,
scoring 10 of the first 14 points
to start the fourth and holding
on for the win.
, For the second half, Malone
outscored Sneads 29-17.
"We played worse defense in
the first half. We were not good
and we were out of our game,"
Lady Tigers coach Byron Wil-


liams said. "In the second half,. on the inside.


we made shots, we were able to :
press, and they had no answer
for that."
BreanaDallas added 13 points
for Malone, while Tasherica
McMillon and Logan Neel each
had 16 points to lead Sneads.
Chasity McGriff added nine
for the Lady Pirates.
Sneads was without two of its
rotation post players in Krissi
Satterfield and Tezlyn Henry,
and Brelove took full advantage
by exploiting the Lady Pirates


"tBrelove) gave us fits," SHS
coach Andy Ward said. "She
can score preiryr much when
she wants."
But the coach said he was
mostly satisfied with what he
saw trom his team, especially
being short-handed and play-
ing its third game in' three
nights.
"I thought we played our
tails off," he said. "With only
six players and playing (three
games in three nights), I think


we got winded in the fourth. I
thought we played pretty well;
we just got. a little tired at the
end. But Malone is a good team
and we hung. in there to the
end. I think it showed how far
we've come and that we've got-
ten better."
Sneads will return to action
Jan. 7 for a district road game
against Vernon, while Malone
will be back Jan. 4 at home
against league opponent Pop-
lar Springs.

BY DUSTIN KENT
dkent@jcfloridan.com

Just one night after taking a 19-point
wirn over the state's No. 3 team West
Gadsden, the Malone Tigers posted
another impressive double digit win
over a highly ranked 1A team; knock-
ing off the No. 5 Chipley Tigers 77-64.
The win snapped Chipley's 33-game
winning streak that dates back to early
last season, moves Malone to 10-0 on
the year and solidifies the Tigers as the
state's No. 1 team in 1A.
"To play two teams of this caliber
back to back and win, I'm very proud
of that effort," Malone coach Steven
Welch said. "I told our guys to walk
out feeling good but not too good. We
have to assume that (West Gadsden
and Chipley) will both get better, so
we've got to get better also. But I like
the track we're on right now."
Malone got 22 points from Chai"
Baker, who also put in 24 in Friday's
win overWest Gadsden, with Anthony
Speights adding 16, Ty. Baker 13, Ant-
wain Johnson 11, and Austin Williams
.10.
The scoring wasn't nearly as spread
out for Chipley, with freshman phe-
nom Trent Forrest posting his second
straight 30-point game and his third
this season, scoring 35 points, includ-
ing 23 in the second half.
Sophomore guard Tyrome Sharpe
was the only other Chipley player in
double figures with 12.
Forrest's late game scoring kept
the game from getting out of hand
for Chipley, as Malone jumped .out
to a 22-point lead early in the fourth;
quarter after a transition dunk by Chai
Baker to cap an 11-2 run.
Chipley responded with seven
straight points, with Forrest mak-

Rams race by Pirates


BY DUSTIN KENT
dkent@jcfloridan.cbm

The Sneads Pirates suf-
fered their second straight
loss in the Grand Ridge
Christmas Classic on Sat-
urday night, falling to the
Rutherford Rams 71-47.
Sneads started the Clas-
sic off Thursday against
1A power West Gadsden
and fell 66-48, and the
Pirates had to come back
Saturday to face the No.
3 ranked 5A team in the
state in the Rams, who
were coming off their first
loss of the season Dec. 18
against Gulf Breeze.
Rutherford proved/ too
much for the Pirates to
handle, jumping out to a
16-2 lead to start the game
and keeping the margin at
double figures the rest of
the way.
Junior guard Khaliel
Spearman scored 17 of


his game-high 24 points
in the first half to lead the
Rams, with 6-foot-8 senior
center Jai Jencks adding
13 points, Keith Arts eight,
and Doran Moore eight.
Darius Williams topped
Sneads scorers with 12
points, with Jeremy Wert
scoring nine, and Kyle
Commodore eight.
With the win, the Rams
improved to 11-1 on the
season, while the Pirates
fell to 5-7.
Sneads was still without
senior point guard Devin
Hayes, who missed his
eighth straight game with
an ankle injury, and his
absence was felt early and
often against the aggres-
sive full-court pressure
of the Rams, who forced
several turnovers in the
first half to establish the
big lead.
SThe Pirates settled down
in the second quarter and


closed the margin some-
what, getting threes from
Jeremy Wert and Hunter
Johnson to make it 23-
11 midway through the
period.
Rutherford took a 38-
21 lead into the halftime
break, but Sneads contin-
ued to hang around, with
a driving dunk by Wil-
liams bringing the Pirates
back to within 12 at 47-35
with 46 seconds left in the
third.
A basket by Wert to start
the fourth got Sneads to
within 11 at 49-38, which
was the closest the margin
had been since the first
quarter, but the Rams out-
scored the Pirates 22-9 to
close the game and put it

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS.
Indianapolis Colts quarterback Andrew Luck (left) talks with Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Jon Baldwin after their game on
Sunday in Kansas City, Mo. The Colts won 20-13.


'Nice little story' gets even better


he Colts were a nice little story
six weeks ago.
That's when a team that
started 1-2 and had "rebuilding"
written all over it responded to the
loss of rookie coach Chuck Pagano
with one of those how-did-they-
do-it winning streaks and that
was supposed to be that. Consider-
ing the Colts finished 2-14 a year
ago, then said goodbye to Peyton
Manning and turned the rest of the
roster upside-down, the season was
already success.
Fans in Indianapolis knew can't-
miss rookie quarterbackAndrew
Luck was bound to improve, but
explaining the 4-1 run after Pagano
left the team to deal with leukemia
was tough enough, especially be-
cause there was precious little room
elsewhere for improvement. The
Colts still can't run the ball, and they
still start rookies at nearly every one
of the skill positions. The defense?
Don't ask.
Yet the story just got better.
Indianapolis was outgained by
more than 200 yards Sunday in
Kansas City. The Colts lost the time-
of-possession battle but still won
20-13 and locked up an improbable
playoff spot.
"Mission accomplished," Colts
interim coach Bruce Arians said, as
though he expected as much. "That's
all I can say. It's a fantastic feeling."
And the story is about to get better
still.
Pagano has been cleared to return,
perhaps as early as Monday. He
might have been the only guy in the
entire organization who was expect-
ing great things when he took over,
but an entire squad and staff have
come over to his side in his absence.
Arians, who stepped in for his
close pal and consulted Pagano
throughout his ordeal, is a candidate
for coach of the year. And Luck, who

other Chai Baker dunk, which was
answered by another two from For-
rest, who later knocked down a cor-
ner three to cut the margin, to 12
with 1:35 to play.
Malone answered with a Ty Baker
dunk on the other end, with Carlon
Smith hitting a three-pointer to get
Chipley back to within 11.
But that was as close as Chipley
would get in a game that saw Malo-
ne lead by double digits for the en-
tire second half.
Chipley's last lead of the game Was
at 14-13 after a Logan Justice triple
with 1:15 left in the first quarter.
A driving basket by Speights put
Malone back up to stay, with Spei-

threw for a modest 205 yards and
a touchdown, still made up a lot of
ground in his race against similarly
impressive first-year quarterback
starters Robert Griffin III of Wash-
ington and Russell Wilson of Seattle
because of something he didn't do
-throw a costly interception.
Even the much-maligned defense
got into the act, with Darius Butler
picking off Brady Quinn's pass and
returning it for a touchdown five
plays into the game, and whole
unit rising up to stuff Quinn on a
quarterback sneak late in the game,
turning the ball back over to Luck
in time for a rookie-record seventh
winning drive.
"Whenever teams go for it on
fourth down, the defense takes it
personal," Indianapolis end Dwight
Freeney said.
If the defensive stand was a
surprise, what Luck did with the
opportunity wasn't. The Colts' run-
ning game is still little more than a
chance for Luck to catch his breath,
and despite the emergence of
receivers T.Y Hilton and Dwayne Al-
len, just about everybody in Arrow-
head Stadium was looking at veteran
wideout Reggie Wayne. So was Luck,
who saw him cut through a seam in
the middle of the defense, then fired
a high, hard pass that Wayne latched
onto in the end zone for a 7-yard
score.
Luck owns the rookie records for
most yards, most 300-yard games,


ghts later adding a three-pointer
and a dunk off of a nice bounce pass
from Williams to make it 20-15 after
one quartet.
Speights had 14 of his 16 points in
the first period.
The lead was just two. with five
minutes left until halftime when
Chai Baker got two and then drilled
a three to make it 30-23, and then
added a three-point play and a steal
and lay-up to give Malone a 37-26
edge.
Forrest converted a three-point
play of his own to get it back to
eight, but Ty Baker got in front of
the defense in transition and threw
down a one-handed tomahawk jam
in the waning seconds of the half to.
put Malone up 39-29 at the break.
Malone continued the onslaught
in the third quarter, getting a driving
bucket by Johnson, two from Chai
Baker, a put-back by Speights, an-
other fromWilliams, a three-pointer
from Johnson, and a driving finish
for a three-point play from Williams
to complete a 23-6 run and go up


most winning drives, and the strike
to Wayne put him closer to the rook-
ie record of 26 touchdown passes set
by none other than Manning. And
just like Manning, to whom Luck
was often compared before the sea-
son, the rookie knew exactly what to
say about all of them.
"I think it definitely means some-
thing. After the season I'll have a
chance to reflect back on it. Obvi-
ously, it is nicer to be in the playoffs
and know that," Luck said, "but it is
nice to have a couple records that
I'm sure will be broken in the next
year."
What he said next, though, came
as something of a surprise..
"I think we were confident in the
locker room from day one. I remem-
ber going in, trying to gauge the feel
of what it was going to be like. Guys
were confident on this team, like
Reggie Wayne who had never missed
a playoff until that year. Dwight
Freeney, Robert Mathis, those guys
are winners, they know how to win,
so I think they imparted some of
that magic, if you will, on some of
the younger guys, the newer guys.
"It was a confident bunch, we
never prepared to lose a game, we
always prepared to win, and I guess
that worked out."
It's still a mystery exactly how, but
Luck wasn't going to spend much
more time dwelling on that than he
did on. accumulating records.
"I guess it will be an extra special
Christmas," he said, referring to
Pagano's return. "There will be a lot
of emotions when he comes through
the door. It's funny, there are prob-
ably 10 guys who have never met
Chuck on the team, but I think they
will be emotional too because I'm
sure they feel like they know him,
too, because his presence is felt so
much in the building out here, and
wherever we go."


53-32.
Chipley fought back with a 10-2
run, with a Sharpe three-pointer
starting the rally and a Forrest three
cutting the lead to 55-42 with 1:58
left in the third.
Chai Baker responded with a
timely three-pointer on the next
Malone possession to push it back
to 16, with a driving basket by Red
Griffin, two free throws from Chai
Baker, and a pair of dunks from Ty
Baker and Chai Baker making it 66-
44 with just over six minutes left in
the game.
SWith the loss, Chipley fell to 9-1 on
the year.
It was the first loss for Chipley
since falling to Holmes County 81-
75 on Dec. 10, 2011.
Chipley will next host the Holiday
Express Classic on Thursday and
Friday, taking on Providence on
Thursday and Lincoln on Friday.
Malone will compete in a tourna-
ment in Dothan this week, taking
on Northview on Wednesday at 6:30
p.m.

Darius Williams rises for a shot in the lane on Saturday night
during Sneads' game against Rutherford.


Rams
From Page 1B

Eric Hamilton and a put-back by Hamilton completed
a 10-0 Rutherford run to establish a 67-44 run with two
minutes left.
Sneads coach Kelvin Johnson said that despite the fi-
nal margin, he was happy with the way his team com-
peted against the bigger Rams.
,A lot of people won't understand that about a 24-
point game, but I thought we played well," the coach
said. "We did a good job in the second and third quar-
ters against their pressure. They're just so big down
there. They're just a better team than we are, but we
did some good things in the game. I was encouraged
by it."
The Pirates were given a tall task in Grand Ridge, fac-
ing two of the most talented teams in the state in their
respective classifications, but Johnson said he feels the
games.will ultimately pay dividends for his group.
"We haven't played but one or two teams this year
that haven't been really good. teams," the coach said.
"But we want to get better and play at a high level, and
you can't do that without playing good teams."
Sneads will next play Friday against Seminole Coun-
ty (Ga.) at Marianna High School at 5:30 p.m.

Horoscope

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan.
19) This might not be a
good day to rely on any-
body to toe the line in a
get-together. People are re-
laxing, and some could do
so in ways you won't like.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb.
19) Although you'll have
plenty of justification for
feeling lucky, remember
that good fortune does
have its limitations.
PISCES (Feb. 20-March
20) If you're planning a
get-together, double-check
your guest list to make
sure you haven't forgotten
anybody.
ARIES (March 21-April
19) Heed your own con-
science and don't let some-
one who is rather emotion-
a! dissuade you from doing
what your common sense
dictates.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20)
- It's a day of giving and
receiving, and you'll have.
your share of both. For-
tunately,. each will come
straight from the heart, so
everything should turn out
happily for you.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20)
Although you might let
those in your charge get
away with doing things you
normally wouldn't let them
do, it won't be a problem.
CANCER (June 21-July 22)
Your intuition is pretty
good, but that doesn't
mean you should let your
imagination run rampant.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)
S-I Don't be embarrassed
about finding other ways
to keep-pace with your
Shigh-rolling friends.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
Objectives that are of im-:
portance to you are equally
woven into the interests of
others, so don't sweat it.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23)
You'll be relying on logic
and experience quite a bit,
so although fanciful think-
ing could make you feel
joyful, you won't let it get
out of hand.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22)
Be extra careful if you are
forced to share some time
with someone who has a
questionable reputation.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-
Dec. 21) Don't ,forsake
an old pal who gets out of
line. This might be one of
the times to turn the other
cheek;


Annie's Ma box


Dear Readers: Merry Christmas. We
hope those who are celebrating this
holiday are fortunate enough to enjoy it
with family and friends. A few years ago,
we printed a prayer that a reader sent
in, author unknown. Since then, we've
received several requests to reprint it, so
here it is once again:,
A Christmas Prayer
SLet us pray...
That strength and courage abundant
be given to all who work for a world of
reason and'understanding.
That the good that lies in each of our
hearts may day by day be magnified.
That we will come to see more clearly
not that which divides us, but that which
unites us.
That each hour may bring us closer to
final victory, not of nation over nation,
but of ourselves over our own evils and
weaknesses.
That the true spirit of this Christmas
Season, its joy, its beauty, its hope, and
above all, its abiding faith, may be among
us.


That the blessings of peace be ours,
the peace to build and grow, to live in
harmony and sympathy with others,
and to plan for the future with
confidence.

Dear Readers: Last year, we printed the
PNC Christmas Price Index figures for
the cost of purchasing all the items
listed in the song "The Twelve Days of
Christmas."
SAccording to the PNC, this year, True
Loves must pay-more than $107,300.24
for all 364 gifts, an increase of 6.1
percent. And while the price .of the
partridge, two turtle doves, four calling
birds, eight maids-a-milking, nine ladies
dancing and 10 lords-a-leaping remained
the'same, those pesky swans jumped
11.1 percent to $7,000. The pear tree is
11.8 percent higher at $189.99. Also cost-
ing more this year are 11 pipers piping,
12 drummers drumming, three French
hens and five gold rings, which rose 16.3
percent due to the dramatic rise in gold
prices.

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
Arizona guard Nick Johnson (13) breaks awayfora dunk against
Miami in the Diamond Head Classic on Sunday in Honolulu.


The Associated Press
HONOLULU The No.
4 Arizona Wildcats are
making being undefeated
look as easy as a day at the
beach. Mark Lyons cer-
tainly isn't complaining
that 20-point wins have
become fairly common.
Lyons scored 19 points
as Arizona easily defeated
Miami 69-50 on Sunday
night at the Diamond
Head Classic tournament
in Honolulu.
"We can always get bet-
ter. Nobody is perfect," Ly-
ons said. "We're jelling real
'well togethk. '
The score itself was noth-
ing special for theWildcats,
who have won eight games
by double digits and five
Sby more than 20 points.
"It was one of our best
performances of the year
and it came at the expense
of a good team," said Ar-
izona's Sean Miller, who


earned his 200th career
coaching victory
Nick Johnson had 12
points, and Kevin Parrom
added 11 points and eight
rebounds for the Wildcats
(11-0).
Arizona, one of five un-
beaten teams left in the
country, advanced to Tues-
day's championship game
of the eight-team tourna-
ment against No. 18 San
Diego State, which beat
Indiana State 62-55 earlier
Sunday.
After a close game early
with several ties and lead
changes, Arizona took a
14-point lead toward the
end of the first half and
pulled further away in
the second. The Wildcats
dominated on rebounds
and spread 'their offense
among several players.
Miami went scoreless for
a four-minute stretch of
the second half. Arizona
scored 10 points during


the drought to take a 26-
point lead with less than
three minutes remaining.
Arizona shot 48.1 percent
(25 of 52) for the game, in-
cluding 44 percent from 3-
point range. Miami made
only five 3-pointers, two in
the second half.
Kenny Kadji led the
Hurricanes (8-2) with 19
points, taking nearly half
of his team's shots. Durand
Scott scored 15 points.
A putback dunk from
Kaleb Tarczewski gave
Arizona a 16-point lead
seven minutes into the
second half. A few minutes
later, Lyons casually sank a
long 3-pointer to push the
lead to 19. He then slowly
walked backward down the
court without expression.
"He has great belief in
himself and he can really
shoot the ball," Miller said


of Lyons. "He also has a
competitive nature that
can be contagious, but
no question: He set the
tone from the onset, and
I thought that he was very
good throughout."
Tarczewski scored eight
points and had 13 of Ari-
zona's 46 rebounds. Miami
had only 20 rebounds.
Arizona has played only
one close game this sea-
son, a one-point victory
over Florida on Dec. 15.
One thing Miller said
his club could improve on
is cutting down on turn-
overs. The Wildcats had 16
against Miami.
"We're trying to be a
team that can do some
special things and I think
that we want to be hard
on ourselves," Miller said.
"There's always things that
we can do better."


Major League Baseball


Swisher, Tribe reach 4-year deal


The Associated Press

CLEVELAND The In-
dians' pitch to bring Nick
Swisher "home" worked.'
Two people familiar
with the negotiations said
Swisher has agreed to a $56.
million, four-year contract
with the Indians, who used
the free agent outfielder's
deep Ohio connections to
convince him to join the
club. The people spoke on
condition of anonymity
Sunday because Swisher
must take a physical before
the deal can be finalized.
The Indians are expected to
announce Swisher's sign-
ing after Christmas, one of
the people said.
The Indians will not com-
ment until Swisher com-
pletes his physical.
"Wow! What a crazy few
weeks," Swisher said on-
Twitter. "Hey Cleveland!
Are you ready? Because I'm
coming home!"
. Swisher's deal includes
a $14 million option for
2017 that could become
guaranteed based on plate
appearances the previous
year.
Indians second baseman
Jason Kipnis was excited


about the club's newest
addition.
"Welcome to the Tribe
S(at)nickswisher, pumped
to get ya," Kipnis tweeted.
The 32-year-old Swisher
spent the last four seasons
with the New York Yankees,
taking, advantage of the
short right-field porch at
Yankee Stadium. A switch-
hitter, Swisher hit .272 this
season with 24 homers and
93 RBIs.
Swisher will fill an out-
field hole for 'the Indians,
who traded Shin-Soo Choo
to Cincinnati. Swisher will
play right, with recently ac-
quired Drew Stubbs likely
taking over in center with
Michael Brantley shifting
from center to left field.
Swisher, who was born
in Columbus and played at
Ohio State, visited the Indi-
ans earlier in the week. The
club used Swisher's ties
with the Buckeyes to con-
vince him to join a team
that won just 68 games last
season following an histor-
ic collapse in August.
During his tour of Pro-
gressive Field, Swisher
watched a video presenta-
tion on the stadium's giant
scoreboard that featured


messages. from current
Ohio State football coach
Urban Meyer and basket-
ball coach Thad Matta,
who urged him to sign with
the Indians. Later, Swisher
and his wife, actress JoAn-
na Garcia, had lunch with
former Ohio State coach
Jim Tressel, who was at
the school when Swisher
played there.
Swisher's signing is a sig-
nificant win for the Indi-
ans, who have been in the


market for an outfielder
throughout the offseason.
During the winter meet-
ings in Nashville, Tenn.,
they offered Shane Victori-
no a $44 million, four-year
contract before he agreed
to a $39 million, three-year
deal with Boston.
Seattle, Texas and Boston
were believed to be inter-
estedin Swisher, anAll-Star
in 2010 who was regarded
as the second-best free
agent hitter this offseason.
