program," Griffin explained. "All

Man accused

of stealing

girlfriend's

credit card

From staff reports

A Marianna man was charged
with credit card theft after alleg-
edly taking his girlfriend's credit
card in the middle of their dis-
cussion about breaking up.
Daniel Alexan-
der Valenzuela,
23, was arrested
on the charge Dec.
24, 2012.
According to the
report filed against
Valenzuela him, Valenzue-
la's girlfriend got
home from work shortly after 1
a.m. to find him upstairs inside
her apartment. The two started
talking bver their problems, and
at some point Valenzuela asked
her if she Wanted to stay in the
relationship. When she said no,
the report states, Valenzuela told
her that he "needed a way out,"
and grabbed her credit cards
off the table where she'd placed
them when she got home.
He put those in his wallet and
then grabbed her phone, the vic-
tim reported. She was able to get
her phone back and run outside,
where she called the Marianna
Police Department. Valenzuela
left the apartment and ran after
her, at which point an MPD of-
ficer arrived and intervened.
The officer reported that Va-
lenzuela confirmed what his
girlfriend had alleged. On the
order of the officer, Valenzuela
took the cards out of his wallet
,and the officer photographed
them before turning them back
over to the victim.
Authorities gave Valenzuela a
trespass warning barring him
from the Crutchfield Apart-
ments and all its properties, in-
cluding its internal roads, and
arrested him on the credit card
theft charge.

Jury selection begin terror finan case


The.Associated Press
MIAMI Jury selection began
Wednesday for the trial of an el-
derly Muslim cleric and his son
on charges they funneled tens
of thousands of dollars to the
Pakistani Taliban terrorist orga-
nization, which has targeted U.S.
interests with violence in this
country and overseas.
Prospective jurors were handed
detailed four-page question-
naires to fill out in the case of
Hafiz Khan, 77, and his 26-year
old son, Izhar Khan. The el-
der Khan was imam at a Miami
mosque, and his son held the
same post at a mosque in subur-
ban Margate.
Both have pleaded not guilty to
charges of conspiracy and mate-
rial support to terrorism. Each
count carries a maximum prison
sentence of 15 years. Charges
were dismissed last year against
another son; Irfan Khan, against
whom prosecutors had far less
evidence.


U.S. District Judge Robert Scola
said the trial could last up to nine
weeks. He told jurors to pay par-
ticular attention to the written
questions about their ability to
be fair in a terrorism case, which
can stoke strong emotions be-
cause of U.S. involvement in the
Afghanistan and Iraq wars and.
the 9/11 terror attacks. ..
"If,you really have strong feel-,
ings that will prevent you from'
being fair, let us know," Scola:
told potential jurors Wednesday.
"The issue is not whether you're
in favor of terrorism. The issue is."
knowing that is the change, canr
you be a fair juror?" '
The Pakistani Taliban is linked
to al-Qaida and has played roles
in attacks against the U.S., in-
cluding a December 2009 sui-
cide bombing at a military base
in Khost, Afghanistan, that killed
seven U.S. citizens, prosecutors
said. The group also was con-
nected to the attempt in May
2010 by Faisal Shahzad to deto-


nate a bomb in NewYork's Times
Square.
Central to the case against
the Khans are more than 1,000.
phone calls and other commu-
nications intercepted by the FBI
from 2008 to 2010. Based in large
part on those calls, prosecu-
tors say the Khans wired at least
$50,000 to help finance the Paki-
stani Taliban.
In addition,. prosecutors say
Hafiz Khan founded a religious.
school, known as a madrassa, in
Pakistan's Swat Valley that was
used by the Taliban to train and
indoctrinate children in fighting,
Americans. The madrassa was
shut down in 2009 by the Paki-
stani army.
Court documents also show
that the calls contain anti-Ameri-
can rhetoric and strong support
for the Taliban, mainly on the
part of the older Khan.
In July 2009, for example, the
FBI said Khan "cursed the leaders
and army of Pakistan, and called


for the death of Pakistan's presi-
dent and for blood to be shed in
violent revolution."
In a September 2010 call, ac-
cording to the FBI, Khari learned
that Muslim fighters in'Afghani-
stan had killed U.S. soldiers and
"declared his wish that God bring
death to 50,000 more."
Defense attorneys contend that
those sorts of comments amount
to little more than a political dis-
cussion and do not equal sup-
port for terrorism. They also say
the money wired to Pakistan was
for family members, not to buy
weapons for terrorists, and that
the school was not a terrorist
training center.
Scola agreed to allow witnesses
to be questioned under oath in
Pakistan. Defense .lawyers will
travel there in February.to take
depositions from the five, which
include three other people indict-
ed in the U.S. case: Hafiz Khan's
daughter, Amina Khan; her son,
Alam Zaleb; and Ali Rehman.

Malone returns with key district matchups


Ml-hf :ielr[|[hi HIfl,'i:lian
Briana Franklin goes for two for
Malone.


BY DUSTIN KENT
dkent@jcfloridan.com

The Malone Lady Tigers will
jump back into action after
the holiday break with .a bang,
playing two big district games.
against Poplar Springs on Friday
and Central on Saturday.
Malone (11-4, 4-1 in District
1-1A) can make a big statement
in the league to start the second
half of the season with two wins,
as well as put itself in position to
move into a first-place tie with


unbeaten Paxton in the district
standings when the teams meet
Tuesday.
"We're hoping to start the new
year right," Lady Tigers coach
Byron Williams said Wednesday.
"If we win (Friday and Saturday),
that would put us at 6-1 in dis-
trict and that would be a good
way to start things off."
Friday's home game will be a
rematch of a 63-47 Malone vic-
tory on Nov. 30, a game that the
Lady Tigers blew open with a 21-
3 third period.


Malone led just 25-21 at half-
time, though, and Williams said
that the game was a lot closer
than the final margin.
"We weren't up that many on
them late, so I know they'll come
out and play hard," the coach
said of Poplar Springs. "I just
hope in the end the result is the
same."
The Lady Tigers enjoyed a 35
to 14 free throw advantage in the
first matchup, with three of the
Lady Atomics' top five scorers
picking up four fouls.


"They got into some foul trou-
ble early and that made a big dif-
ference," Williams said. "Maybe
if a few calls had gone a different
way, the game could've been dif-
ferent in the fourth quarter."
The first meeting with Central
this year on Dec. 15 in Malone
was a big more decisive, with the
Lady Tigers jumping out to a fast
start and rolling to a 65-40 win.
But this game will be in Mil-
ton where the Lady Tigers had

showdown

Bulldogs try to get big on boards vs. Catholic


BY DUSTIN KENT
dkent@jcfloridan.com

The Marianna Bulldogs (9-4)
will travel to Pensacola on Friday
night for a titanic District 1-4A
showdown with the Pensacola
Catholic Crusaders (10-6) at 6:30
p.m.
It's a rematch of a 47-46 over-
time victory by the Crusaders on
Dec. 14 in Marianna, a defen-
sive struggle in which Catholic
used a dominant rebounding
performance to help edge by the
Bulldogs.
The Crusaders had 40 total re-
bounds in the game, including
11 on the offensive end of the
---L~un, tiAh Marianna coach'Tra-
vis Blanton saying Wednesday
that it's a trend his team must
break if it is to win Friday.
"We're going to have to re-
bound a lot better than we did
last time," he. said. "It seemed,
like, every loose ball went their
way and we didn't get any breaks
as far as the ball rolling our way.
We're going to have to come up
with some of the loose balls and
try to match their intensity. We
didn't do avery goodjob of being
mentally ready to play a game of
that magnitude."
In a half-court, low-possession
game like,the first between the
teams, getting extra possessions
can be crucial, and Crusaders
sophomore post player Quan
Moorer created six sudh second


chances with a half dozen of his
game-high 16 rebounds coming
on the offensive glass.
Getting a better handle on the
6-foot-5 Moorer Will be critical
to the Bulldogs-winning the re-
bounding battle this time.
"We struggled keeping him off
the glass last time," Blanton said.
"I don't knowif it was a combina-
tion of what he did and what we
didn't do, but he's ,a good player.
He's a tough kid and he plays
smart. He does what he knows
he can do, but they all do that.
They all play within themselves
very well. (Crusaders coach Nick
Mead) has done a good job of
helping those kids understand
their roles."
However, the Crusaders were
unable to carry over the mo-
mentum from the Marianna win
into their district matchup with
Walton, with the Braves coming
away with a 53-50 victory to level
the District 1 standings, with all
three teams tied at 1-1.
"That just means that every
game has a great impact on the
seeding," Blanton said. "Every
game means something. We're
all trying to battle for that No.
1 spot to get that automatic bid
into the playoffs."
The coach said he spoke with
his players about the significance
of the team's remaining two dis-
trict games, but he was careful to

Wee League title


BY SHELIA MADER
Floridan Correspondent

The. Raiders made their
season-long dream of a city
championship come true
Friday night at Optimist Park,
as they took the PeeWee League
title with a 36-6 win over the
Jaguars.
Caleb Torbett, TJ Hayes, Elijah
Peterson and Ben Wiggins all
scored touchdowns, and Ster-
lin Crumpler, Brady Donaldson
and Issac Smith all scored on
point after attempts.
Following the game, Raiders
head coach Rex Torbett said
he was very pleased with his
squad's effort.
"This was a good way to end
the season. Everyone had the
opportunity to get quality time
on the field," he said. "Several
players got to run the ball and
once again our defense held
them to only one touchdown. I
am very proud of how the kids
played for the season.
"Defensively, we had three
shutouts and only allowed sev-
en touchdowns in eight games.
They were attentive at practice
and played hard in the games."
The coach said that showed
itself in the way his players im-

Rex Torbett,

"When we started the season,
there were some who did not
know anything about the basic
fundamentals of tackle foot-
ball," Torbett said. "By the end
of the season, it was fun to see
that the light had come on for a
few and they were having a lot
of success at their position. It
would not have been possible
without the help of assistant
coaches John Donaldson and

ahead of third place Sneads
(3-2).
The Lady Hornets were 1-5
overall to stait the season, but
coach Shan Pittman said she has
been very pleased with her team's
play since the rough beginning.
"I realize we had a tough
schedule (early), but I've really
been impressed with low (the
players) responded, especially
after the big loss against PDL,"

Ray Lewis announces he will retire after playoffs


The Associated Press

OWINGS MILLS, Md. Ray
Lewis will end his brilliant 17-
year NFL career after the Bal-
timore Ravens complete their
2013 playoff run.
Lewis has been sidelined since
Oct. 14 with a torn right triceps.

linebacker intends to return

"It's a fine line in how you ap-
proach that," Blanton said. "You
can put too much pressure on
kids and they feel like the sea-
son's over if you lose, but if they
don't treat the game like it's very
important, you can have the
kind of effort like we did (in the
first game against Catholic).

games because if we lose we still

Lewis said Wednesday. "I talked

team that this will be my last

Lewis will walk away from the

way in. But if we win out in the
district, we'll be sitting pretty
good."
With just three teams in the
league, the team with the best
district record in the regular
season gets an automatic bye
into the district tournament
title game, which ensures that
team at least the runner-up
playoff spot.
The Bulldogs could be play-
ing short-handed Friday, with
starting junior post player Rod-
erick Copeland still battling a
sprained ankle he suffered in

more time with his two sons.
While working to return from
his injury, Lewis watched them
play on the same high school
football team, and he intends to
watch Ray Lewis III perform as a
freshman next year for his alma
mater, the University of Miami.
"God is calling," the 37-year-
old Lewis said. "My children


have made the ultimate sacri-
fice for their father for 17 years.
I don't want to see them do that
no more. I've done what I want-
ed to do in this business, and
now it's my turn to give them
something back."
Which means he'll pull off his

to grind out a 48-39 win last
season.
"It's always a little different
over there," Williams said. "I'm
little nervous about that game,
with it being a back-to-back on
the road, and with how we beat
them last time maybe playing a
part in the kids' minds."
Making things even tougher,
according to the coach, has been
sporadic attendance in practice
this week, with only Tuesday see-
ing the Lady Tigers practice with
their full complement of players,
andWednesday's practicefeatur-
ing only four players.
"It's a little discouraging," Wil-
liams said. "At the same time, I'm
just hoping they'll come back
and we'll give'them a little pep
talk and we'll keep gbing. We just
have to shake it off and keep go-
ming. But (at Poplar Springs), those
girls seem to be very dedicated.
If they're coming to practice and
we're not, we definitely could be
in trouble."
Friday's game will tip off at 6:30
p.m., with Saturday's double-
header with the boys tipping at
5 p.m.

she said. "They didn't quit.
They fought back and
showed me that they have
a lot of heart and they want
to win."
Cottondale is 5-2 since
that 60-20 loss to the Lady
Pirates, and the three
league wins in particular
have given the Lady Hor-
nets an opportunity to
make a run at one of the
coveted top three seeds in
the district tournament.
"We're in a pretty good
position, but the next few
games are very critical,"
Pittman said. "We'll see
what happens. The main
thing is that we make sure
we stay healthy and take
every district game serious
regardless of who we play.


We're trying to keep it in
the forefront of the girls'
minds that Vernon is a very
big game because it's a dis-
trict game and we can't
take anybody for granted."
Vernon has already taken
district losses of 57 and 47
points to PDL, and 30 to
Sneads.
. But Pittman said that
with the Lady Hornets
having such'a long lay-off,
no win can be considered
a sure thing.
"From what I gather,
they're still kind of athletic
and they're young. They.
have the numbers, but
it's just a team that's still
developing," the coach
said of Vernon. "But we're
playing them coming off
of the Christmas holidays,
and we haven't played
in quite a few days, so
hopefully we won't be


too rusty."
The Lady Hornets will
look to recapture some of
the momentum they had
built over the previous
couple of weeks, a stretch
that concluded with four
wins in five games.
After some early-season
turbulence, the coach said
that the.team is starting to
find some answers.
"They're learning each
other and understand-
ing what each person can
;do and what their role is
now," Pittman said of her
players.. "They're starting
to get more confidence in
each other and the team
chemistry is there now too.
It took a few games to get
that together."
After the Vernon game
comes a county game
against Marianna on Fri-
day in Marianna, with two


more district games next
week against PDL on Mon-
day and Sneads on Jan. 11.
Cottondale against Mari-
anna is always a big game,
but Pittman said it's impor-
tant her team understands


that the highest priority, is
getting the league games
into the win column.
"Of course we want to
win against Marianna, but
(the district games) are
the most important," she


said. 'The next few games
are very-pivotal, so we're
spending our time making
sure our mental thought
process is about doing
what we're supposed to do
to win those games."

PIP rates unlikely
to change much
TALLAHASSEE
- Florida drivers
looking to save money
resulting from a new law
designed to crack down
on no-fault auto insur-
ance fraud may have
to look hard to find any
significant savings.
Any potential savings
coming on the per-
sonal injury protection
portion of a policy is so
slight that it is likely to
be offset by increases
in other parts of the
coverage.
The new, tougher
PIP law which took
effect on July 1 caps
benefits at $2,500 unless
a doctor, osteopathic
physician, dentist or a
supervised physician's
assistant or advanced
registered nurse practi-
tioner determines there's
an "emergency medical
condition."
A driver's insurance
company was previously
required to pay up to
$10,000 for medical bills
and lost wages no matter
who was at fault.

Savings expected
on welfare contract
TALLAHASSEE
- Florida officials are
expecting big savings
from a new contract for
handling federal food
and temporary cash as-
sistance services.
The Department of
Children and Families
said the contract signed
Wednesday will save at
least $8.6 million in the
next budget year that
starts July 1 and an esti-
mated $21 million over
three years.
The contract is with
eFunds, a subsidiary of
FIS Government Ser-
vices, the world's largest
provider of banking and
payment technologies.
The firm will process
Electronic Benefit Trans-
fer services that clients
receive through plastic
cards similar to credit or
debit cards.

Boy shoots line,
causes outage
OCALA- A 12-year-
old north Florida boy
shot a high-powered
rifle and hit a 69,000-volt
transmission line, caus-
ing almost 6,000 cus-
tomers in Lynne, Silver
Springs Shores, Silver
Springs and Ocklawaha
to lose service for several
hours.
The Ocala Star-Ban-
ner reports that the Clay
Electric Co-op said the
outage began at about
1:30 p.m. Tuesday and
lasted for about five
hours.
The Marion County
Sheriff's Office clas-
sified the incident as

MIAMI Trial re-
sumed in the case of a
South Florida woman
accused of killing miss-
ing Florida foster child
RilyaWilson, with the
key prosecution witness
still on the stand.
Jailhouse informant
Robin Luhceford was
undergoing cross-exam-
ination Wednesday by an
attorney for defendant
Geralyn Graham. The
defense is trying to poke


holes in Lunceford's
story that Graham con-
fessed in jail to smother-
ing 4-year-old Rilya with
a pillow and burying her
body near water. The ,
body was never found.
The 66-year-old Gra-

if convicted of murder,

claims Rilya was taken
from her home for men-

in 2001 and never

Florida celebrates its Spanish heritage


The Associated Press

MIAMI When Juan
Ponce de Leon searched
for riches in Florida, he
unknowingly helped turn
the Sunshine State into the
first travel destination in
the United States.
In April 1513, the Span-
ish monarchy contracted
the explorer to find anoth-
er island off of Cuba that
was rumored to have great
riches. Instead he landed
in Florida and named it "La
Florida," after the "feast of
the flowers" during Spain's
Easter celebrations.
Five centuries later, the
state is celebrating its
Spanish heritage with a se-
ries of events throughout
2013.
"It was always seen as an
exotic place," historian Dr.
J Michael Francis said of
Florida. "That's something
that Florida tourism con-
tinues to market on some
level."
Although Florida's his-
tory dates back more than
12,000 years with Native
Americans, the statewide
campaign "Viva Florida
500" will highlight the start
of a new era with de Leon's
adventurous voyage to the
NewWorld.
"He was the first visitor
to the United States," said
Will Seccombe, president
and CEO of Visit Florida,
the state's official tourism
marketing corporation.
"That's 500 years of explor-
ers and they kept coming
back."
Tourism is Florida's No.
1 industry, responsible for
welcoming 87.3 million
visitors in 2011, according
to state official estimates.
Many visitors may know
Florida mostly for its 825
miles (about 1,330 kilo-
meters) of beaches pr as
the theme park capital of
the world, but the "Viva
Florida" campaign is de-
signed to broaden their
outlook, Seccombe said.
The state will host 150 cel-
ebrations that "highlight
cultural diversity and the
art culture -history that
makes up the fabric of our
communities."
After de Leon's visit, Eu-
ropean settlers colonized
in present-day St. Augus-


PHOTOS THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
Visitors explore the Castillo de San Marcos in St. Augustine. The nation's oldest fort was built by Spanish settlers between 1672
and 1695 and used to fight off pirates, hostile natives, French, British, and South Carolinian forces. This year Florida is marking
the 500th Anniversary since the explorer Ponce de Leon landed in Florida in April 1513, with a series of events related to the
state's Spanish heritage and other aspects of its history.


A statue of Spanish explorer Ponce de Leon is located in St.
Augustine's Plaza de La Constitucion. On April 2, St. Augustine
will unveil, another statue of de Leon located at the exact
latitude logged by his ship the day before he claimed "La
Florida" as a Spanish territory in April 1513.


tine, the nation's oldest
city. Visitors to the city can
find many references to
the Spanish colonial era,
from the massive Castillo
de San Marcos fort that
protected the city from at-


tack, to the colorful Span-
ish architecture and nar-
row streets. (Full-scale
replicas of Ponce de Leon's
flagship will visit the city in
April).
De Leon probably wasn't


the first European to set
foot in Florida, and there
is even debate on where he
landed exactly: Melbourne
Beach, St. Augustine or
South Ponte Vedra Beach.
But all of these suggested
spots are based on fairly
tenuous documentation.
"It's unlikely we will ever
know the precise landing
spot," said Francis, Hough
Family Chair of Florida
Studies at the University
of South'Florida in St. Pe-
tersburg, Fla. "There is no
archaeological footprint.
No logbook. And even if
found, there's no guaran-
tee we would even know
from that.":
The commemoration, he
said, is riot about pinpoint-
ing the Spanish legacy but
about rediscovering "and
maybe even discover for
the first time Fjorida's co-
lonial history."
Francis also wants to set
Sthe record straight about
the search' for eternal'
youth: There is no mention
of the Fountain of Youth in
de Leon's contracts with
Spanish crowns or in his
own writings, Francis said.


"Over time that story be-
came more embellished,"
Francis said. "What started
as a myth ended up in the
writings of later histori-
ans and chroniclers as
history."
But the.legend lives on
in Florida's 700 natural
springs and with spas,
health resorts and yoga
retreats.
Kicking off the 2013
celebration of European
discovery was "La Gran
Naranja" or the "Big Or-
ange" drop a 35-foot
LED neon orange LCD
descending from the side
of a downtown Miami ho-
tel onNew Year's Eve. The
word naranja comes from
the sweet Valencia orange
the Spanish introduced to
America, later becoming
Florida's official state fruit.
Throughout the year,
150 events across the state
will mark the anniversary:
Drive the Spanish Heritage
Trail. Dive on historic ship-
wrecks. Tour a Spanish ba-
silica and mission village.
Visit orange groves and
cattle ranches. Taste the
flavors of Florida.


Mother: Teen didn't steal plane in crash


The Associated Press

JASPER, Ala. A teen
pilot killed along with two
friends in an Alabama
plane crash had his own
key to the aircraft and
had flown it many times,
his mother said Wednes-
day, denying authorities'
assertion that the plane
had been taken without
permission.
Sherrie Smith said her
17-year-old son Jordan
Smith was the one flying
the plane that went down
in the Alabama woods
Tuesday night. The Fed-
eral Aviation Administra-
tion said the Piper PA 30
crashed less than a mile
from the Walker County
Airport in Jasper, which is
northwest of Birmingham.
Smith said the owner of
the plane had let her son
fly it many other times and
had given him his own key.
Her son was a high school
junior who fell in love
with flying at an early age
and was one test short of
earning his private pilot's
license.
"He had used the plane
many times before," she
said.
Her son had left the
house around 6 p.m. to
meet some friends at an-
other airport in the area,
and she said she last spoke
to him by cell phone about
four hours later. One of
her son's friends called
later about reports of a
plane crash, and she tried
to reach Jordan again but
couldn't.
Walker County sheriff's
Chief Deputy James Paint-
er said earlier Wednes-
day that authorities be-
lieved the three teenagers
took off in the plane


without permission.
"We don't know for sure
but we think it was some
teenagers who stole the
plane and were sort of joy-
riding it," Painter said. '
A call'to the National
Transportation Safety
Board was not immediate-
ly returned Wednesday.
Walker County Coroner
J.C. Poe said the other two
people killed in the crash
were Brandon Tyler Ary,
19, and Jordan Seth Mont-
gomery, 17.
The plane had departed
from the small airport
around 10:30 p.m. in over-
cast skies and a low cloud
ceiling, airport manager
Edwin Banks said.
"It was a student pilot
flying an airplane without
permission, an airplane
that he was not qualified
to fly at night," Banks said.
Banks said Smith had
flown single-engine planes

in the past, but the plane
in the crash was a double-
engine aircraft.
The Piper PA 30 is also
called a Piper Twin Co-
manche. It is a low-wing
plane with two propellers
and can seat four to six,
depending on the model.
The planes were built
from 1963 to 1972, and
were popular with flight
schools because of their
fuel efficiency and relative-
ly inexpensive price tags,
according to the Interna-
tional Comanche Society,
an enthusiasts' group.
Sherrie Smith said the
plane was parked behind a-
security gate, but that her
son had been given a code
to access it.
She also said her son had
enough promise as a pilot
that he'd already earned
a scholarship to Wallace
State Community College
to study aviation.


"He started going to the and friends would take
airport when he was 14, him up," she said.

Dear Annie: I am a 22-year-old adoptee.
My grandparents raised me from 6
months old and officially adopted me
when I was 10. They have three sons
- my biological father and his two
brothers. This is where the problem lies.
My "uncles" have never accepted that
their parents are my parents. They never
refer to me as their sister and frequently
refer to my parents as my grandparents.
Most of these things I ignore, but there
is one thing I cannot. My parents are in
their early 60s, and the subject of their
death comes up often. Their sons have
decided that when our parents die, I have
no say in anything.
Their Child
Dear Their Child: You are not going to
make your uncles treat you like a sibling.
They see you as their brother's child. And
although your parents are not that old,
it is never too soon to prepare a will and
other necessary legal documents. Your
parents' wishes and the distribution of
their assets are things they get to decide,
and they should discuss it with a lawyer.
Dear Annie: I recently attended a
cocktail party at the home of a former


South is in six spades. West leads the club king.
North's two-no-trump response showed four-
plus spades and at least game-forcing high-card
values. South's three-club rebid indicated a
singleton or void in that suit. Three diamonds
and three hearts were control-bids (cue-bids) '
first-round controls in those suits. 4
South has possible losers in each major. The
heart finesse is apparently unavoidable. The
trump suit is a danger only if it is breaking 3-0
- and even then, declarer might avoid a loser.
The key point of the deal is that the trump
suit isn't a guess. Declarer should cash dummy's
spade king first. Here, West discards, so South
draws trumps with the aid of a finesse and later
tries the heart finesse for an overtrick.
What happens, though, if East discards under
the spade king?
Declarer ruffs the club seven in his hand,
cashes the spade ace, and turns to diamonds. If
West never ruffs, South discards one heart, then
plays a trump to West's queen. West is caught.
He must either lead a heart into declarer's ace-
queen or concede a ruff-and-sluff (when declar-
er pitches a heart from the board and ruffs in his
hand). Either way, South has no heart loser.


. colleague from our deaf program. The
speaker was a campaign worker for one
of the presidential candidates. The party
hostess made arrangements in advance
for a sign language interpreter.
When the speaker was done with his
presentation, I waited for my turn to talk
to him. As I got clearance, I was inter-

Swho showed no respect for a deaf guest
while the conversation took place. I
managed to maintain a professional
attitude by containing my emotions, but
their rudeness took me by surprise. The
speaker was aware of this, and his facial
expression hinted to me that he was not
pleased.
If I were to attend another such event
and get the same treatment, what should
I do?
Deaf Professor
Dear Deaf This type of situation can' oc-
cur whether a guest is deaf or not. People
interrupt, block you from the conversa-
tion and behave rudely. An alert host
would have interceded, and the speaker
should have made every effort to be
more inclusive.
