Police arrest man on Cottondale campus

Man with knives
arrested on
school grounds
From staff reports
A local man was charged
with being in possession
of weapons on school
grounds Wednesday after
a confrontation with the
school's principal led to the

'discovery of three knives
in a book bag and jacket
he had with
him at the

win, 47, was
being held
Godwin on a $25,000
bond in the
case as of Thursday after-
noon. According to the
complaint filed against

him by the Jackson County
Sheriff's Office, Godwin
and the school's adminis-
tration had previous trou-
ble overGodwin'l tendency
to show up on the Cotton-
dale Elementary School
campus without first
checking ifi at the front
office as school policy
Officials say his pres-
ence was sometimes
discovered when he

approached teachers dur-
ing the school day without
an appointment.
Authorities say he and
school principal Lawrence
Pender had an appoint-
ment to talk about this
and/or 'other matters a
day or two before the inci-
dent, but that their meet-
ing didn't take place as
Because Pender was
busy with something else

when he first arrived,
Godwin left campus
that day but returned on
Wednesday, officials said.
When he was discovered
on campus, reportedly.
having not checked in,
Pender escorted Godwin
to his office and the two
started talking. But Pender
became concerned, au-
thorities say, because God-
win "became argumenta-
tive ... where he at times

threatened the adminis-
trator in an intimidating
At that point, Pender
called for the school re-
source officer. When the
SRO arrived, he noticed a

asked for permission to

charged with

scheming to

From staff reports
A Graceville woman has been charged
with committing an organized scheme to
defraud and using communications tech-
nology in furtherance of the scheme, ac-
cording to the affidavit filed to obtain the
arrest warrant against her.
According to the affidavit,
Patricia Ann Hughes, 31, par-
cicipared in the scheme with
her boyfriend, Charlie Senior
Authorities say Senior and
Hughes Hughes were first arrested in
June of this year on warrants
for bank fraud and grand theft. Subsequent-
ly, investigators searched their residence at
4175 Barron Road and discovered a credit
card they later learned was allegedly fraud-
ulently obtained in the name of a Georgia
woman whose father had once lived with
Hughes in that state.

Man accused

intheft of

wheels, tires

From staff reports
A Greenwood man was charged with grand
theft after allegedly stealing two wheel and
tire sets from a vehicle at a local garage, re-
portedly making up a bad-luck story in or-
der to borrow tools from the garage which
he used to steal those items.
Gregory Alan Cannady
was scheduled to receive a
conditional release from jail
Thursday afternoon follow-
ing his first appearance on
the charge.
Cannady According to charging doc-
uments and the complaint
filed against the 27-year-old, Cannady took
the wheels and tires in mid-November
of last year and admitted that he and an-
other individual went to Rays Garage with
the intention of taking them. He admitted
borrowing tools from an employee there to
remove them from a truck that was at the
garage for service, according to officials.
Authorities say Cannady told the employee-
his wife's car had a flat tire and he needed
tools to change the tire. Instead, authorities

students in the automotive technology department at Chipola College were putting theory
into practice Thursday. After learning about the valves located in a transmission, they had
to disassemble one, check the valves inside for signs of damage, lubricate them and then
reassemble it, said Automotive Technology Instructor Chase Vlieg. Daniel Johns (left) and Quan
Bess are seen reassembling the transmission they worked on.

Deer carcasses found at two local sites


Multiple deer carcasses
have. shown up in at least
two locations in Jackson
County over the past few
weeks, some showing evi-
dence that they've been par-
tially dressed-out and the
remains left to decompose in
the open.
State wildlife officials sus-
pect they've been left there
by some hunters who are
,either ignorant of or ignor-
ing the disposal laws. Florida
Fish and Wildlife Conserva-
tion Commission represen-
tative Stan Kirkland strongly
suspects the latter..
"It's disgusting, shameful
and illegal," Kirkland said, "It
shows a lack of any personal
The agency has received
information that there are
several such carcasses ,at
the Yancey Bridge landing

near Citizens Lodge on Cav-
erns Road in Marianna, and
some off River Road north of
There are penalties associ-
ated with the offense, Kirk-
land said, but offenders are
hard to catch in the act. As a
result, it's difficult to stop.
The practice can result in
a misdemeanor charge that
can cost the offender up to
$300 and could earn them a
60-day jail term. Hunters are
required to bury or take ani-
mal remains to a landfill or
other appropriate disposal
site, Kirkland said.
He encourages residents
to call local law enforcement
officials, like sheriffs and
police chiefs, when they en-
counrel someone engaged ini
the offense.
"We can take the report,"
Kirkland said, "but if they
can get word to the local law
officers in a timely fashion,
so that someone already

in the general area can be
immediately 'sent to the
location, we're that much
more likely to catch up to
these people and hold them
He also suggested call-
ing the FWC hotline at 1-
888-404-3922. Anyone who
suspects they've witnessed
an illegal disposal should,
when safely possible, try to
provide officials with a de-
scription and tag number
of the involved vehicle 'as
soon as they can, a descrip-
tion of the individual, and
any other information they
can provide to help steer law
enforcement officials to the
Frequent Chipola River
fisherman David Frey think,
he has a solution. Having re-
cently seen an estimated 20
deer carcasses along a favor-
ite route near Yancey Bridge
landing, Frey said the FWC
could make a dent in the

problem if the agency would
install a camera in areas
where he's seen this happen
many times before during
deei -hunting season.
"A camera will show you ev-
erything people, tag num-
bers and maybe put a stop to
this," Frey said. "Maybe the
fine shotild be higher, too. It's
very aggravating; who wants
to fish with that kind of smell
and sight out there? Whp'
if you took your kid fishing
andhe saw tliat. Nice. I use,
to take my dogs walking out
there, but one time I had one
of them out and I w\van't pay-
ing close attention. When I
looked around. li he was gnaw-
ing on a carcass. I called him
off of it. Two days later, he

to reach underserved farmers and ranchers who are
not currently enrolled in USDA loan, farm or conser-
.vation programs," said Sally Phillips, Jackson County

shared outreach list that will help USDA, community-
based organizations and minority-serving educational
institutions to communicate with minority farmers
and ranchers."
By joining the Register, minority producers may re-
ceive outreach materials, newsletters, and program
announcements from USDA agencies. They may also
receive information and assistance from other USDA-
approved outreach partners, such as community-
based organizations, faith-based organizations and
minority-serving educational institutions. USDA will
carefully control access to and use of the Register.
Individuals wishing to join the Register must sign
and date a form that provides their name and address.
Providing phone numbers, email address, race, eth-
nicity, gender and farm or ranch location will be vol-
untary, although the additional information increases
the producer's opportunities for receiving timely
The Register pamphlet with the registration form is
available at the Jackson County USDA Service Cen-
ter or from approved USDA outreach partners. Com-
pleted forms may be mailed to: USDA Minority Farm

our signature fundrais-

ceeds from the gala are
significant to the mission
of Covenant Hospice in
Calhoun, Jackson, Holmes
and Washington Coun-
ties," said Jennifer Griffin,
Development Manager for
Covenant Hospice.
At Covenant Hospice,

we believe that everyone
deserves quality end-of-
life care regardless of their
ability to pay.
We also believe there
are certain programs that
are essential to providing
excellent care not only for
the patients but also their
loved ones. These pro-
. grams include bereave-
ment services, chaplain
services and children's
support services.
And lastly, for the 768
uninsured or under-in-
sured patients Covenant

Hospice cared for last year,
we provided services cost-
ing $1.4 million. We were
there when they needed
us the most. Because
these programs are not

Amazing Grace

To increase self-confidence, grow in your faith

Of all the attitudes
worth cultivating
in the new year,
self-confidence ranks
among the most im-
portant. But confidence
without competence can
trip us up before we even
begin. Here's why.
The self-esteem move-
ment, inaugurated by
California's Jack Canfield
in the 1980s, meant well,
but prompted the guru's
disciples to think well
of absolutely everything
they did, however inept.
Still, Canfield's movement
caught on, even with
Years ago, University of
Texas psychologist William
B. Swarm Jr. noticed his
young daughter sporting
a T-shirt with the slogan
"IFm lovable and capable"
emblazoned on the front.

When he asked where she
got it, she replied that all
her kin-
had one and
wore it every
Aj Friday to
David school. She
YoUMt also re-
ported that
the school
required the students to
recite the mantra "I'm lov-
able and capable" before
every class.
Swann noted that, in
the midst of their con-
versation, "My daughter
fell silent for a moment
and then, with a puzzled
expression, asked, 'Daddy,
all the kids are wonder-
ing: "What does'capable'
mean?" '"
Aye, there's the rub! Most

people are caught up
playing roles in life in
which we are less than
We can't escape many of
them. I can't pretend that I
was especially adept in all
the jobs I've held to earn
a living.
If you are a spouse or
parent, no one trained
you to be expert in those
roles, and effort alone
can't guarantee success.
As it turns out, confidence
depends a lot on courage.
The value of self-esteem
is to keep us rising to new
challenges even when
we're down.
Philosopher Thomas
Hobbes, writing in 1658,
affirmed that those "who
estimate their own worth
correctly ... dare to try
again," but warned that
"those who estimate their

worth too highly, or
pretend to be what they
are not, or who believe
flatterers, become dis-
heartened when dangers
actually confront them."
That advice stands up
A false assumption
about our quest for self-
esteem is that spouses,
friends and co-workers
can be counted on to
support our efforts.
That assumption flies
in the face of the fact that
others have a stake in a
person's continuing to
remain the same. Many
a divorce can be traced
to one partner "growing"
while the other stays
the same, and it is
typically the steady
spouse who feels betrayed
by the change in the

Newly won achieve-
ment by one partner can
threaten an intimate, in-
terdependent relationship
such as marriage.
Only a saint merits
wholehearted self-esteem.
Yet saints are notoriously
critical of themselves,
because they measure
their success against God's
expectations of them.
But saints are effective
persons nonetheless be-
cause they are confident
that their creator loves
and respects them. Their
self-confidence comes
from working to justify
that trust.
The best thing we can
do to achieve greater
self-confidence in the year
ahead is to grow in faith.

Inaugural pastor
The evangelical pas-
tor chosen to give the
benediction at Obama's
inauguration withdrew
from the ceremony after
remarks he made two
decades ago condemn-
ing the gay rights move-
ment surfaced.
The Rev. Louie Giglio
of Passion City Church
in Atlanta said in a
statement he withdrew
because it was likely that
the "prayer I would offer
will be dwarfed by those
seeking to make their
agenda the focal point of
the inauguration."
Addie Whisenant, a
spokeswoman for the
Presidential Inaugural
Committee, said the
committee chose Giglio
because of his work to
end human trafficking.

You must be aware

of the details in

your business

(( T lhe devil is in
Sthe details."
T Ludwig Mies
van der Rohe
It is so important to
examine every part of
your business with fresh
eyes every day. When you
become accustomed to
business's environment, it
is just so easy to overlook
the small, but important
details. I think this is just
how our brains oper-
ate. We just do not really
notice small changes that
occur over time. However,
your business could suffer
if you do not see small
problems developing.
I was giving a seminar
in Ecuador in a very poor
area on the other side of
Quito. Since I only had
to teach two hours each
day, I had time to get out
and see this wonderful
As I explored each day,
I saw the most rampant
poverty that I have ever
seen. People were living
in conditions I could not
imagine my dog living
in. However, as shocking
as this was for me at the
beginning, I eventually
stopped seeing the pov-
erty and the difficult lives
these people were living.
My brain just accepted
these horrific condi-
tions as the norm for this
This kind of blindness
can occur anywhere and
under a variety of condi-
tions, including at my
laundromat. I am not very
domesticated. I have not
turned on my stove or
oven in two years, and I go
to a laundromat to have
my clothes washed and
Every time I go, the
laundramat's parking lot
is filthy and full of debris,
and I am sure the owner
has just become so accus-
tomed to these conditions
that he does not really
even see the mess. I just
know that if he did, he
would have the parking
lot swept each morning
and this would encourage
more customers.to use his
For another example, the
other day, I stopped into
Bob Evans restaurant for
breakfast. As I was sitting
at the counter, \ looked
through the opening into
the kitchen and saw all
the chefs wearing t-shirts
stating the restaurant's
I I am sure the restaurant

spent time and money
developing these shirts,
the aprons
the chefs
had to wear
covered the
Jerry statement.
s ar dig No one
stm seemed
to be awareof this detail
even though it was pretty
obvious to my eyes.
Another restaurant is
using yard signs to draw
in customers. Over time,
the signs have deterio-
rated from exposure to the
elements, gotten bent and
blown off. Needless to say,
they were not sending a
very good message to the
business's Clientele.
We all know the devil is
in the details. What makes
it tricky is that you have to
be able to see the details in
order to make the changes
that are so necessary.
Just like in the examples
above, if is so easy for
you to miss details that
can have negative conse-
quences for your business.
To make sure you do not
slip into this unawareness,
you have to constantly jog
your mind and try differ-
ent things everyday so you
can see your surroundings
with fresh eyes. Try taking
a different route to work
each day or wearing your
watch on your other hand
every other day.
One of my favorite
ways to stay fresh is to get
plenty of exercise before
I go to work. This really
just seems to energize me.
Additionally, when I go
to work or meetings, I try
to focus on my breathing
and get out of my head
because if I am lost in my
thoughts, I know I am not
Now go out and make
sure that you have a
method in place for keep-
ing your mind fresh so you
are able to see the details
of your business.
You can do this!

7 money stumbles to learn to avoid

Everyone makes
money mistakes.
But missteps or.
miscalculations can cost
you a lot over the long
term and could inadver-
tently hurt your family
when you're gone.
Consumer Reports of-
fers seven ways to correct
your missteps or at least
mitigate the damage they
can cause.
L Not updating your
beneficiaries in Con-
sumer Reports' recent
nationally representative
survey about Americans'
money habits, 86 percent
of respondents said they
hadn't created their will
and other estate-planning
documents or updated
them within the past five
years. Even if nothing has
changed in your life, every
year you should check
your beneficiary designa-
tions in your will, insur-
ance policies, investment
accounts and retirement
plans such as 401(k)s.
2 Withholding informa-
tion from family. The sur-
vey showed that in only
40 percent of households
did both spouses know
where to find details of
their financial accounts,
required passwords and
keys to safe-deposit
boxes. An easy solution
is to designate a safe, file
cabinet or safe-deposit
box to hold all important
documents and account-
access information.
Communication be-
tween generations can
also reduce hassles and
misunderstandings. Yet
just 37 percent of respon-
dents with adult children
said they'd told their kids
where to find important

In a recent Consumer Reports survey, only 36 percent of the
homeowners surveyed said they'd purchased replacement-
cost coverage, insurance that provides replacement of a
home with like-kind and quality materials.

documents, accounts
and passwords. Adult
children stand abetter
chance of gning their
parents' trust and helping
them make plans if they
get their own financial
houses in order firSt.
3. Botching your 401(k).
In interviews with Con-
sumer Reports subscrib-
ers who've been success-
ful savers and investors,
a common refrain was to
start saving early in life,
invest consistently and
put the maximum allowed
into a retirement plan.
But in the survey, two-
fifths of respondents with
401(k) and similar retire-
ment plans said they were
investing 6 percent or less
of their income, the typi-
cal ceiling for getting a full
employer match.
Notably, a large percent-
age of survey respondents
mentioned costly invest-
ment errors, such as buy-
ing or selling at the wrong
time..Investing at regular
intervals and holding
over the long term is the
most surefire way to avoid
, those mistakes and build
wealth in a relatively risk-
free way.
4. Underinsuring your
home and your life. Only
36 percent of the hom-
eowners surveyed said

4711 Highway 90 East Marianna, FL
(Between Burger King & Big Lots) 526-SPIT

they'd purchased replace-
ment-cost coverage, a
more expensive hom-
eowners insurance that
provides replacement of
your home with like-kind
and quality materials.
And only 20 percent have
umbrella coverage against
liability claims.
Two other cover-
ages that should not be
overlooked are life and
disability insurance. Term
life insurance is more eco-
nomical than other types.
Use an online broker such
as Accuquote, Select-
Quote, Find My Insurance
or Lifelnsure.com to com-
pare premium quotes;
S5.Not preparing for
emergencies. Most Ameri-
cans don't save even half
a year's worth of living
expenses. Saving a bit at
a time say, $20 a week
- can help build your
cash buffer. That money
should go into an acces-
sible bank or credit-union
savings account.
6. Ignoring your credit
report. Consumers can
obtain a credit report
from each of the three
major credit bureaus
- Equifax, Experian
and TranSUnion free
through the industry's of-
ficial website, at annual-
creditreport.conl. To most

efficiently monitor your
credit, Consumer Reports
recommends staggering
your report requests to
one every four months.
7. Mismanaging debt
Credit cards generate
among the most expen-
sive type of consumer
debt; the average interest
rate is about 14.3 percent,
according to LowCards.
com, a credit card
comparison website. In
spite of those lofty costs,
almost half of the survey
respondents with credit
cards said they carry a
-balance on their cards.
To begin to free yourself
from that balance, con-
sider consolidating your
debt with a home-equity
line of credit; rates on
HELOCs average between
4 and 5 percent, accord-
ing to Bankrate.com.
Focus on retiring your
.debt by paying more than
the minimum due each

three to four inches long.
The officer also reported
finding a large box-blade
type knife in the bag, with a
blade about the same length.
Asked whether he had any
more weapons; Godwin af-
firmed that he did, officials
reported. He consented to a
search of his person, accord-

in one of his jacket pockets
the SRO found another large
folding pocket knife with a
blade of similar size.

In addition to the card, in-
vestigators found other doc-
uments associated with the
woman, including biograph-
ical information. Authori-
ties also found credit cards
in the names of members of
the Laborer's International
Union of North American,
AFL-CIO, where her father
had worked. Interviewed by
investigators during the time
of these discoveries, Hughes
allegedly told an investiga-
tor that Senior had obtained
credit cards in the names of
union members in Georgia,
and she maintained associ-
ated records in the bedroom
of their dwelling.
Authorities saythey tracked
down the circumstances of
the credit card in the name
of the Georgia woman and
learned it had been applied
for via the Internet and had
an outstanding balance'of
$317. The card was obtained
using the victim's Social Se-
curity number, date of birth
and othei information, and
with the Hughes/Senior ad-
dress assigned to it.
The woman in Georgia
did not know until being in-
formed by law enforcement
that the card existed, accord-
ing to the affidavit. She told
authorities she had not ap-
plied for the card, had not
authorized anyone to use
her personal information
to obtain it, and hadn't seen
Hughes in roughly a year pri-
or to being informed by law
enforcement that the credit
card existed. Investigators
say they found records asso-
ciated with the woman going
back to her middle school
days, when she lived with her
father and Hughes in Colum-
bus, Ga.
In the affidavit, authorities
also made reference to a sec-
ond questionable credit card
associated with Hughes and/
or Senior, this one obtained
in the name of a Georgia

Investigators say when

the matter, they found one of

mounted on a Toyota truck
in his yard, and the other in

Perry said the media was not pay-

Williams was black and Santos was
an illegal immigrant from Mexico.
When he announced the reward,
a man stepped from the front of

Flu season hits early and hard How to tell

The Associated Press

NEW YORK From the
Rocky Mountains to New Eng-
land, hospitals are swamped
with people with flu symp-
toms. Some medical centers
have limited visitors, and one
Pennsylvania hospital set up
a tent outside its ER to handle
the feverish patients.
Flu season in the U.S. has
hit early and, in some places,
hard. But whether this will be
considered a bad season by the
time it has run its course in the
spring remains to be seen.
"Those of us with gray hair
have seen worse," said Dr. Wil-
liam Schaffner, a flu expert
at Vanderbilt University in
The evidence so far is point-
ing to a moderate season,
Schaffner and others believe. It
just looks bad compared with

the country until late January
or February, but it is already
widespread in more than 40
What's probably complicat--
ing the situation: The main in-
fluenza virus this year tends to
make people sicker. And there
are other bugs out there caus-
ing flu-like illnesses. So what
people are calling the flu may,
in fact, be something else.
"There may be more of an
overlap than we normally
see," said Dr. Joseph Bresee,
who tracks the flu for the Cen-
ters for Disease Control and


Dr. Meeta Khan wears a face mask as she examines a respiratory patient at the Rush University Hospital
emergency department on Thursday In Chicago. Flu season in the U.S. has hit early and, in some places, hard,
But whether this will be considered a bad season by the time it has run Its course In the spring remains to
be seen.

The flu's early arrival in the
U.S. coincided with spikes in
a variety of other viruses, in-
cluding a childhood malady
that mimics flu and a new no-
rovirus that causes what some
people call "stomach flu."
Most people don't undergo
lab tests to confirm flu, and the
symptoms are so similar that
it's sometimes hard to distin-
guish flu from other viruses, or
even a cold. Over the holidays,
250 people were sickened at a
Mormon missionary training
.center in Utah, but the culprit
turned out to be a norovirus,
not theflu.

Flu is a major contributor,
though, to what's going on.
"I'd say 75 percent," said Dr.
Dan Surdam, head of the emer-
gency department at Cheyenne
Regional Medical Center, Wyo-
ming's largest hospital. The 17-
bed ER saw its busiest day ever
last week, with 166 visitors.
The early onslaught has re-
sulted in a spike in hospitaliza-
tions, prompting hospitals to
take steps to deal with the in-
flux and protect other patients
from getting sick, including
restricting visits from children,
requiring family members
to wear masks, and banning

anyone with flu symptoms
from maternity wards.
One hospital in Allentown,
Pa., this week set up a tent for a
steady stream of patients with
flu symptoms.
But so far, "what we're see-
ing is a typical flu season," said
Terry Burger, director of infec-
tion control and prevention
for the hospital, Lehigh Valley
Hospital-Cedar Crest.

cold from

the flu
The Associated Press

The common cold and flu are
caused by different viruses but can
have some similar symptoms, making
them tough to tell apart. In general,
the flu is worse and symptoms are
more intense.
COLDS: Usual symptoms include
stuffy or runny nose, sore throat and
sneezing. Coughs are hacking and
productive. It's unusual to have fever,
chills, headaches and body aches, and
if they do occur, they are mild.
FLU: Fever is usually present, along
with chills, headache and moderate-
to-severe body aches and tiredness.
Symptoms can come on rapidly, with-
in three to six hours. Coughs are dry
and unproductive, and sore throats
are less common.
PREVENTION: To avoid colds and flu,
wash your hands with warm water and
soap after you've been out in public or'
around sick people. Don't share cups
or utensils. And get .a flu vaccination
- officials say it's not too late, even in
places where flu is raging.
TREATMENT: .People with colds or
mild cases of the flu should get plenty
of rest and fluids. Those with severe
symptoms, such as a high fever or dif-
ficulty breathing, should see a doctor
and may be prescribed antiviral drugs
or other medications. Children should
not be given aspirin without a doctor's

Calif. marijuana stash

The Associated Press

- Authorities in Northern
California made a snappy
discovery during a routine
probation check: Ai alliga-
tor named "Mr. Teeth" who
was apparently protecting
a stash of marijuana.
When Alameda Coun-
ty Sheriff's deputies on
Wednesday entered As-
sif Mayar's home in Cas-
tro Valley for a probation
check, they not only found
34 pounds of marijuana
valued at an estimated
$100,000, but also the 5-
foot-long gator inside a
Plexiglas tank guarding it
in a bedroom.

Mr. Teeth was likely used
to deter marijuana thieves,
Nelson said. Mayar, 32, told
deputies he got the gator to
commemorate rapper Tu-
pac Shakur's 1996 death.
"We have come across al-
ligators before, but nobody
can remember one this big
and situated in such close
proximity to act sort of as
a sentry to the marijuana,"
Nelson said.
Mayar, who is on proba-
tion after pleading guilty
last year to disturbing the;
peace, was arrested and
was taken to the county jail
on suspicion of possess-
ing marijuana for sale. He

It was a highly-anticipated
meeting between two of the
most talented teams in JUCO
basketball, both of which are ex-

pected to compete for the state
and potentially the national title
this season.
But for at least one night, the
defending state champion and
national runner-up Raiders
looked to be in a different class
than the top-ranked Indians,
jumping out to an 8-0 lead to
start the game and controlling
the action most of the way.
Chipola never 'led or tied the
game, coming within two at 19-
17 with 6:25 left in the first half,
but never any closer.

"I thought that we obviously
started off slow and didn't do a
good job handling their defen-
sive intensity and pressure and
just playing on the road," Indians
coach Patrick Blake said. "It was
a little overwhelming for us at
first. It was kind of the moment
that got to us. We didn't show a
lot of poise."
Chris Jones led the Raiders with
18 points, with Elgin Cook add-
ing 16, while Demetrious Floyd
had 16 points to top Chipola,
and Cinmeon Bowers added 15.

Jones knocked down a three'
on the first possession of the
game, with Cook following mo-
ments later with a pair of mon-
ster dunks off of a lob pass and
then a put-back on a Jones miss
to make it 8-0 less than five min-
utes into the game.
The Indians didn't get their first
points of the night until a base-
line jumper by Torian Graham

The Northwest lead got up
to 14-2 after another triple by
Jones, but Chipola rallied with

nine straight points capped by a
three-pointer by Floyd to pull to

Junior Seau suffered from brain disease

The Associated Press

Junior Seau, one of the
NFL's best and fiercest play-
ers for two decades, suf-
fered from a degenerative
brain disease often associ-
ated with repeated blows
to the head when he com-
mitted suicide last May,
the National Institutes of
Health said in a study re-
leased Thursday.
The NIH, based in
Bethesda, Md., said Seau's
brain revealed abnormali-
ties consistent with chron-
ic traumatic encephalopa-
thy or CTE. It said that the
study included unidenti-
fied brains, one of which
was Seau's, and that the
findings on Seau were sim-
ilar to autopsies of people
"with exposure to repeti-
tive head injuries."
Seau's family requested
the analysis of his brain.
The 43-year-old star line-
backer played for 20 NFL
seasons with San Diego,
Miami and New England
before retiring in 2009. He'
died of a self-inflicted shot-
gun wound.
He joins a list of several
dozen football players who
were found to have CTE.
Boston University's cen-
ter for study of the disease
reported last month that
34 former pro players and
nine who played only col-
lege football suffered from
"I was not surprised after
learning a little about CTE
that he had it," Seau's 23-
year-old son Tyler said, "He
did play so many years at
that level. I was: more just

something more and have
the awareness to help him
more, and now it is too
"I don't think-any of us
were aware of the side ef-
fects that could be going
on with head trauma until
he passed away. We 'didn't
know his behavior was
from head trauma."

Love looking to return

to normal on PGA Tour

The Associated Press

HONOLULU -The swing remains me-
chanically sound, and plenty powerful.
And for the first time in two years, Davis
Love III feels like just another player.
It wasn't until he arrived for the final
PGA Tour event of last year that Love re-
'alized his two years as Ryder Cup captain
had taken a toll. When he wasn't playing
golf, he was going around the country
promoting golf's version of the Super
Bowl. In the final months leading up to
the matches, his 'thoughts were con-
sumed with four picks and his pairings,
and he lost track of how much time he'
spent with the media.
"I felt at the end of the year, it hit me
that I'd had a long year," Love said. "I kept
saying that it was not distracting me from
playing, but it was. It was more mental.
I put so much thought into it, and then
there's the media and business stuff the
PGA of America puts on you."
Not that he had any complaints, ex-
cept for the outcome that Sunday at
Medinah when Europe rallied to win.
Love turns 49 in April, a time he should
be winding down his career and perhaps
thinking about the Champions Tour. But
There were a couple of moments late last

season that caused him to think differ-,
ently. He played three rounds with Vi-
jay Singh who turns 50 next month
- in the Frys.com Open. Both felt more
than capable of competing with players
their.sons' ages. Aid then came the Fa-
ther-Son Challenge with his son, Dru, a
freshman at Alabama.
"They had this deal at the Father-Son
where they asked you the'most played
song on your iPod, your dream foursome
and there's one that you had to say how
old you thought you were," he said. "I al-.
ways feel 39. I feel like I'm getting dlder,
but I still have that drive and that enthu-
siasm. Sure, I feel a little bit stiffer and it
takes me a little bit longer to get going.
But I still feel like I have enough power."
Love is in the field at the Sony Open,
which starts Thursday as the first full-
field event of the PGA Tour season. It's
the start of a full year for him ini which he
plans to play up to 25 tournaments, just
like he has for years.
Even with the Ryder Cup hanging over
him, Love still managed to give himself a
pair of chances to win last year, includ-
ing his own tournament, the McGladrey
Classic, where he shared the 54-hole lead
with Jim Furyk and closed with 71 to tie
for fofirth.

Players were subject to
blood testing for HGH
during spring training

expands that throughout

addition to urine tests

enhancing drugs.
Under the changes to

"This is a proud and' a
great day for baseball,"
commissioner Bud Selig
said following two days of
owners' meetings. "We'll
continue to be a leader in
this field and do what we
have to do."
The announcement
came one day after ste-
roid-tainted stars Barry
Bonds, Roger Clemens
and Sammy Sosa failed to
gain election to the Hall of
Fame in their first year of
Commenting on the tim-
ing, Selig noted the drug

been in the works "but it
wasn't too bad, was it?"
SSelig reflected on how far
baseball had come on per-
formance enhancing drug
"This is remarkable when
you'think of where we were
10, 12, 15 years ago and
where we are today," he
said. "Nobody could have
dreamed it."
Baseball began random
drug testing in 2003, test-
ing with penalties the fol-
lowing year and suspen-

in 2005. Initial penalties;
were lengthened from 10
days to 50.games in 2006,
when illegal amphet-

number of tests has gradu-
ally increased over the past'
Selig called the latest'
change a "yet another in-

has come."
Rob Manfred, baseball's

Selig praised the cooper-
ation of the players associ-

said. "Way back when they
were having a lot of prob-

however, as the rest of the Hor-
nets scored just 12 points on 5-

long range.
"We didn't do the best job of-
fensively. Nobody could really
hit a shot other than DJ, who
pretty much carried us," Obert
said. "We just had to rely on D a
little too much last time."
That shouldn't be an issue this
time around, with last year's
leading scorer, Jerodd Blount,
rejoining the team three games
after that first matchup with
Sneads and picking up right
where he left off.
The 6-foot-3 senior guard is av-
eraging 28.4 points per game this
season and has converted 33-
of-86 (38.4 percent) from three-
point range in nine games.
Roulhac is still averaging 18

"Weve said the whole season that we want to be in the top three, and you want to win al your

something we want to do. I hope we'll have a good crowd here and be cited and ready to play."
Chris Obert,
Cottondale head coach

the Hornets a dynamic 1-2 scor-
ing punch that should prevent
any more virtual solo outings
like the one against Sneads.
"Rodd has helped out a lot,"
Obert said. "Unless something
crazy happens, I don't see DI
having to hit 42 for us this game.
I think everybody has improved
a lot, and of course with Rodd
there, I think it allows us to
spread it around a little more
and have a little bit more of a
team effort this time."
The Pirates have two pretty dy-
namid 6-foot-3 athletes of their
own in sophomore Jeremy Wert
and junior Darius Williams, both
of whom have shown the abil-
ity to step out and hit jumpers
as well as attack and the basket

it. Hopefully we can slow them
Cottondale currently tops the
district standings with a 6-2
record, with Sneads tied with
Graceville for second at 5-2.
Getting a win tonight might
go a long way for either team to-

ward getting one of the coveted
top three seeds in the district
tournament to avoid being on
the wrong end of the No. 1 vs.
No. 4 semifinal matchup.
"We've said the whole season
that we want to be in the top
three, and you want to win all
your home games in district,"
Obert said. "We always talk
about defending the home court
in district, so that's something
we want to do. I hope we'll have
a good crowd here and be excit-
ed and ready to play."
While tonight's game will be
the most significant in the stand-
ings for the Hornets,' the most
intense environment could be
Saturday when the defending
state champion and next-door
neighbor Tigers come to town.

Chipley (13-2) is led by the
talented freshman-sophomore
duo of Trent Forrest and Tyrome
Sharpe, with the latter coming
off of a remarkable 51-point ef-
fort in a 106-87 win over Mosley
on Tuesday.
Forrest has led the team in
scoring all year and is considered
by many to be the best fresh-
man in the state, and Obert said
he knows his team will have its
hands full dealing with him and
his backcourt buddy Sharpe.
"Chipley is one of the best
teams in the state and they've
got two really good players that
it's going to be a chore trying to
stop," he said. "But we haven't re-
ally talked about Chipley much.
We'll talk about them after (the,
"But that's a big game. Chipley
is 10 miles up the road, so that's

of the half thanks to con-'
secutive buckets by Bow-
ers to make it 32-26 at the
But the Raiders again had
an answer with a 14-4 run
to start the second half,
with threes by Telvin Wilk-
erson and Edwards and a
jumper by Jones making it
46-30 with 14:31 to play.
Floyd came alive midway
through the second half
withback-to-backtriples to
get Chipola back to within
single digits at 58-50 with
nine minutes to play, but
Robinson answered with a
three-pointer of his own,
followed by buckets by
MarvinWilliams and Cook,
and a three-point play by
Jones to make it 68-50'with
5:26 remaining.
The Indians were simply
unable to string together
enough scores and stops to
get close enough to threat-
en the Raiders in the sec-
ond half.
"(Northwest) did a good
job defensively, ,and it
seemed like whenever it
got close, they came back
down and hit some shots,"
Blake said. "I actually
thought we did a good job'
defensively in the first half
holding them to 32 points.
We just could never get
into an offensive flow."
Chipola shot poorly most
of the night, finishing at
just 40 percent for the
game, including going 4-
of-18 from the field, while
also committing 16 turn-
overs, 12 of which came in
the first half.
Blake said that his play-
ers simply didn't show
enough patience and dis-
cipline offensively to break
through the tough North-
west defense.
"When we got down, it
felt like everyone wanted to
win the game with the next
shot instead of just relaxing
and having a good posses-
sion," he said. "We didn't
have the right approach to
be successful in that kind
of game."
Chipola fell to 19-1 on the
season with the loss and
1-1 in Panhandle Confer-
ence play, while Northwest
moved to 16-1 overall and
2-0 in league play.
The Indians won't play
again until Tuesday's home
game against the Pen-
sacola State Pirates, and

Blake said he was happy
to have some extra prac-
tice days afterWednesday's
"I'm definitely looking

forward to the time so we
can get back in the gym
and get some good com-
petitive practices, refocus,
watch the game together as

a team,.and get back out on
the floor and try to get ready
for Pensacola," he said.
"We've gpt a great group
that loves to compete, loves

to win, and hates to lose, so
they're disappointed right
now. But we know we have
10 (conference) games
left and two-more against

Northwest, so we just have
to realize that we hav& an-
other big game coming up
and that's where our focus
has to be."

Annie's Mailbox

Dear Anne: My husband and I recently
moved to the city where my husband's
family lives. One of his brothers has been
married for two years. (It's his third wife.)
"Pete" is a likable guy who often arranges
fun activities.
Pete moved into his wife's house when
they married. She had a teenage daugh-
ter, a dog and a cat. Pete got rid of all
three. He is obsessive-compulsive and
doesn't like to clean up after pets and
couldn't tolerate his wife's daughter. The
girl now lives with her father, who isn't a
great parent, so she sometimes sleeps in
the park We don't know what he did with
the animals. Pete also made his wife sign
over her house because she wasn't pay-
ing her portion of the mortgage and bills.
Pete's wife confides in me, and while
she accepts everything he does; she is
miserable. Myhusband and I feel guilty
hanging out with Mr. Good Times when
he is creating so much pain for his wife
and stepdaughter. How do we continue
accepting fun invites when we know he


In this deal, South is in four hearts. West leads
the diamond queen. Since this'marks East with
the ace, declarer plays low from the dummy at
this trick and the next, when West continues the
suit. However, East takes the third trick with his
ace, then shifts to the club queen. How should
South continue?
South rebid two spades in case he and his part-
ner had, a better fit there than in hearts. (North
could have held five spades and three hearts. To
respond one spade with that hand would have
been wrong, in particular if South had rebid two
clubs or two diamonds. Then North's preference
to two hearts would have shown only a double-
ton, and South would have misevaluated the fit.)
Having lost three tricks, South needed the
trumps to break 3-2. But he also had a potential
spade loser. If the missing cards were friends,
breaking 3-3, there would not be a problem. But
if they were foe, dividing 4-2, declarer wouldpneed
some luck.
South drew two rounds of trumps using
dummy's queen and his ace. Then he shifted to
spades, cashing his ace, crossing to the king, and
leading back to his queen.
If the suit had been 3-3, declarer would have
drawn the last trump and claimed. Here, though,
he ruffed his fourth spade on the board, led a club
to his ace, removed West's last heart, and claimed.

is such a control freak? I realize I can't
interfere in his marriage, but I don't
want him to think we condone his treat-
ment of his wife and stepdaughter. The
fact that Pete sees nothing wrong with
his actions is disturbing. What can we

Dear Worried: Abusers often come
across as charming guys. But we don't
know what's really going on. The pets
could be fine, the daughter might be OK
if her biological father stepped up, and if
Pete's wife wasn't paying the mortgage,
having the house in his name may have
been justified. However, all of these
things together make Pete's behavior
questionable, if not pathological. If he is
forcing these changes onto his wife and
she feels trapped, please encourage her
to call the Domestic Violence Hotline
(thehotline.org) at 1-800-799-SAFE. And
speak up. Tell Pete you find his behavior

Jaguars fire Mularkey after team's worst season

The Associated Press

lacksonville laguals owner Shad
Khan watched his team play, the
more he realized one thing:
"We needed a rebuild from the
ground up," Khan said.
So the jaguars fired coach Mike
Mularkey on Thursday after just
,one season, the worst in. fran-
chise history. The move came
10 days after Khan fired general
manager Gene Smith.
Khan also introduced new GM
David Caldwell on Thursday,
and by parting ways with Mular-
key, gave him a clean slate head-.
ing into 2013. *
"I bring a track record of suc-
cess,". Caldwell said. "Ive never
endured a sustainable losing
But maybe the biggest nugget
came when Caldwell said New
York Jets quarterback Tim Tebow
is not in the team's plans.
"I cant imagine a scenario
where he will be a Jacksonville
Jaguar." Caldwell said.
Mularkey, who went 2-14 this
season, became the eighth head

and off the field, and his efforts
as our head coach will always be
Mularkey's brief tenure*- he
didn't even last a year was
filled with mistakes. His biggest
one may have been his loyalty to
Smith, who assembled a roster
that lacked talent on both sides
of the ball.
Mularkey probably stuck with
Smith's franchise quarterback,
Blaine Gabbert, longer than he
should have. And the coach's
insistence that the team was
closer than outsiders thought
and his strong stance that he
had the roster to turn things
around became comical as the
losses mounted. The jaguars lost

eight games by at least 16 points,
a staggering number of lopsided
losses in a parity-filled league.
Mularkey would have been
better served had he said pub-
licly what he voiced privately:
The Jaguars didn't have enough
playmakers or a starting-caliber
Instead, he never conceded
that Jacksonville was a rebuild-
ing project that needed time.
Mularkey signed a three-year
contract on Jan. 11, 2012, getting
a second chance to be a head
coach six years after resigning
with the Buffalo Bills.
His return was shaky from the
His best player, running back

Maurice Jones-Drew, skipped
offseason workouts as well as
training camp and .the pre-,
season in a contract dispute.
His first draft pick, receiver Jus-
tin Blackmon, was arrested and
charged with aggravated DUI in
June. And his team was riddled
with injuries, including key ones
to linebacker Daryl Smith and
Even things he had control
over went awry.
He had to backtrack after say-
ing Chad Henne would compete
with Gabbert for the starting job
in March. He created a stir by
threatening to fine players up
to $10,000 for discussing inju-
ries. He initially played rookie

receiver Kevin Elliott over Cecil
Shorts III early on. And he really
irked some players with tough,
padded practices late in a lost
Throw in the way he handled
injuries to receiver Laurent
Robinson (four concussions
before going on IR) and Jones-
Drew (admittedly should have
had foot surgery sooner), and
there were reasons to doubt
whether Mularkey was cut out
to be a head coach. Dating back
to his final season in Buffalo,
Mularkey has lost 20 of his last
23 games.
Nonetheless, if Khan really
wanted to fire Mularkey, he
would have done after the sea-
son finale along with Smith.
So this was Caldwell's call.
Caldwell and Mularkey spent
four years together in Atlanta,
getting to know each other well
enough that Caldwell didn't
need a sit down with Mularkey
after he got the GM job Tuesday.
Caldwell ,an'd Khan have a
news conference scheduled for
Thursday afternoon.
Potential replacements for

cago Bears coach Lovie Smith,
Indianapolis Colts offensive co-
ordinator Bruce Arians, St. Louis
Rams offensive coordinator.

Francisco 49ers offensive coor-
dinator Greg Roman.
Schottenheimer was up for the
Jacksonville job last season, and
Roman has been linked to the

Jaguars no longer want hometown hero Tim Tebow

The Associated Press

Tebow won't be playing for
his hometown team.
The Jacksonville Jaguars
made it clear Thursday
that they have no plans to
pursue the popular and
polarizing New York lets
backup quarterback.
The lets are likely to re-
lease the 2007 Heisman
Trophy winner and lack-
sonville native during the
offseason, and many be-
lieved Tebow would land
with the jaguars.
But new general man-
ager David Caldwell nixed
that idea at his introduc-
tory news conference.
"I can't imagine a sce-
nario in which he'll be a
Jacksonville Jaguar even
if he's released," Caldwell
And Caldwell won't get
any pushback from his
new owner.
Shad Khan, who made a
run at Tebow last year, said
it was Caldwell's call.
"It's not my decision,"
Khan said. "I want to do
whatever to help this team
win, Who the players are
is really the general man-
ager's and coaches' it's

created buzz that he
would be a huge hit with
the jaguars. He would sell
tickets and merchandise,
many said, and bring the
small-market franchise
national recognition and
Super Bowl rings.

Despite all the hype, the
jaguars passed on drafting

Tebow in 2010 because for-
mer general manager Gene
Smith didn't view him as a
franchise quarterback.
But after Khan took over
last year and the Denver
Broncos started quietly
shopping Tebow, Khan
told Smith to look into ac-
quiring the left-hander.
The Jaguars increased
their offer several times.
By the end of negotiations,
Jacksonville had offered
a fourth-round pick and
agreed to pay $3 million of
the $5 million in advance
salary the Broncos had
already paid Tebow. The
money the Jaguars offered
was better than the little
more than $2.5 million the
Jets agreed to pay, and the
draft pick was nine spots
higher than New York's
fourth-round selection.
But it never really got
down to the details.
The Broncos told the
Jaguars they were allow-
ing Tebow to choose be-
tween the teams, and the
Jaguars believe Tebow
picked the Jets because he
felt he would have a better
chance to compete for the
quarterback job with Mark
Sanchez than Blaine Gab-
bert and Chad Henne.
Still, the lets failed to
find a way to effectively
use Tebow this season.
Apparently, the Jaguars

don't want to try now,
"We plan to address the
quarterback situation,
obviously," Caldwell said.
"Blaine is the second-
youngest quarterback in
the NFL. but we're going
to have open competition.
Whether it's through draft
or through free agency,
we'll bring in some more
people to compete at the

quarterback position.
We're going to let the best
player win that position."
