Teen runaway, boyfriend accused of murder


Fnlui -.titt reports

A itenage runaway and her
boyfriend are accused ofmulder-
ing a 77-year-old Walton County
man Thursday night.
The suspects and the victim are
all from Walton County's Mossy
Head community.
Walton County Sheriff Michael
Adkinson announced the charg-
es Friday afternoon, saying that
the two had already been tracked
down by the time the murder
came to light. After 16-year-old
Haley Nicole Bowden had been
reported as a runaway, a tip
led deputies and tracking dogs
to a home in the Mossy Head


Community. They found her
there with 22-year-old Chrispen
Ramirez on Thurs-
day at a dwelling
on Eagles Way.
When officers ap-
proached, Bowden
and Ramirez ran
away, officials said.
Bowden K-9 units were put
on their trail and
tracked the two down.
Ramirez was armed with knives
at the scene and threatened the
lives of deputies, authorities re-
ported in a press release about the
chain of events leading to the ar-
rests of Bowden and Ramirez and
the charges against them. Depu-


ties were able to subdue Ramirez
and took him to jail, along with
Bowden, on vari-
ous charges re-
lated to that en-
counter. At that
point, Ramirez
was charged with
interference with
Ramirez child custody and
assault on a law
enforcement officer. Bowdenwas
charged at that point with resist-
ing an officer without violence.
But officials would soon level
more serious charges against
them.
Around the same time they
were being processed into the


jail, other events were unfolding
elsewhere. Deputies had been
sent to Beaver Dam Road to in-
vestigate a trespass complaint.
The caller told authorities that
someone had come onto private
property and abandoned a ve-
hicle there.
The car was found partially
submerged in water, with the tag
missing.
Officers identified the owner of
the vehicle as 77-year-old Arthur
Gerald Anderson and went look-
ing for him.
During the course of their
search, his family members told
investigators that they hadn't
seen him,in a few days. Deputies


found Anderson's body a short
time later at a location not far
from where the vehicle had been
.found..
"Further investigation revealed
Bowden and Rameriz murdered
SAnderson after he confronted
them for entering a residence
on West Juniper Avenue he was
a caretaker of," the press release
stated. "The couple then at-
tempted to burn the residence,
stole Anderson's vehicle, and
dumped it later."
In connection to the Anderson
death, Ramirez and Bowden have
each been charged with arson
and an open count of murder.
The investigation is ongoing.


A view from the front porch shows some of the damage sustained by a
Skyline Drive residence on Thursday in Dellwood. Officials report the blaze
started with a grease fire in the kitchen on Wednesday night.


Familylooks to move


forward after fire


BY DEBORAH BUCKHALTER
dbuclhalterdlIcflondan.com

Jonathan Hlartsfield's emo-
tions are on a roller-coaster ride
this weekend as he, his three
children, his mother and step-
father regroup in the aftermath
of a fire that destroyed so many
of their precious belongings and
left their home uninhabitable
Wednesday night.
There is one factor alone that
makes his emotions soar each
time he. thinks about the fire
- everyone survived. But there
was a .terrifying flash of fear
when Hartsfield wasn't sure that
would be true. Hartsfield dis-
covered the grease fire around 8
p.m. another family member
had been cooking sausage, he
said, and he went to investigate
when he smelled the acrid scent
of smoke. He yelled an alarm for
everyone to get out, his efforts to
douse the flames failing as the
fire started spreading through
the kitchen.
Hartsfield continued to battle
the blaze from outside the vinyl-.
sided, wood-frame house when
he glanced around the lawn
for a headcount; someone was
missing. He had to rush through
blinding smoke with flames lick-
ing all around him to save his 5-
year-old son, Jashaun Hartsfield.
As he went through a door, a
ribbon of fire seared one of his
hands, but he kept going. Un-
able to see through the smoke,
he pushed down his panic and
made himself concentrate on
where his son might be. The
clarity of mind he achieved sent
him straight to his son, who was
motionless when he picked him
up and headed back out through
the house.
Hartsfield said the smoke must
have rendered his son uncon-
scious, but he was able to wake
the child. Hartsfield knows he

was fortunate to be able to save
his youngest and see him grow
up with his 8-year-old sister.
Joneicia Hartsfield, and his big
brother, 9-year-old Jonathan
Hartsfield Jr. That matters far
more than anything that was
lost.
But still, the family is grieving
the loss of a few special things
above others.
One of those is the chain Jona-
than Sr.'s uncle, Lee Arthur Wil-
liams, gave him when he gradu-
ated high school more than a
decade ago.
"He told me when I was com-
ing up that riot a lot of the men
in our family through the gen-
erations had graduated, and that
he'd give me anything I wanted
if I'd just concentrate on school
and do that," Hartsfield recalled.
"Back then, as a young man, I re-
ally wanted a nice chain. He gave
me one for graduation, 'kissed
me on top of the head; that was
just about two months before he
passed. It meant a lot to me. It
was hard to lose that."
The fire also likely destroyed
something that his entire family
held dear, an object whose loss
'sent a fresh wave of grief though,
Jonathan's mother, Betty Harts-
field, as she relived the nearly
unbearable event that brought it
into her life seven years ago.
Her daughter, Jennifer Milton,
died in a car crash back in 2005
at the age of 35. Her co-workers
at the Sunland Center brought
the family a memento in their
time of grief, a framed picture of
Jennifer that they'd affixed to a
base which had been etched with
words in her memory. The Harts-
fields were not immediately sure
that it was lost in the fire, but are
preparing themselves to accept
that it probably is reduced to
ashes and shattered glass.

Get busy putting your life in decent order


M millions of
people from
all walks of life
are having a tough time
physically, spiritually and
- of course financially.
Some of our most popular
fast food restaurants are
loaded with ingredients
that can put us on the fast
track toward obesity and
bad health.
If we don't have a strong
belief in God,. we will
be swayed to indulge in
negative activities, just.
as so many others have.
There are those who are
making the big bucks, but
are struggling to keep up
with their big bills. Why
not move forward in a
positive manner with the


hope and desire for im-
provement and a better
N life?
Too many
of us waste
our time
blaming
others for
Thomas our situa-
Vincent tion, while
Murphy we are
accepting
a negative lifestyle and
wallowing in self pity. It
doesn't have to be that
way; no matter what
your situation.
It's time to get busy and
start putting your life in
decent order. Money
is important in this
world, but it's not the
number one ingredient


needed to start making
positive changes in your
life.
Having a "made up
mind" can be the begin-
ning of a new concept of
life. Even an individual
with little money can
enjoy planning for their
future, once their mind is
set on certain goals. Hope
is still alive and well; but
hope will always appear
to be dead when it's not
accompanied by desire
and action.
All through life we will
run into people who talk
a good game, but never
seem to push the motiva-
tion button to put their
rhetoric into action. One
of the worst things about


those who don't put
forth an honest effort to
improve their lives is that
they are terrible examples
for our children and
young people.
It's shameful to see a
young person who is
moving toward adult-
hood began to fall into
the same lifestyle of the
lazy, depressive adult
they have been observing
during their early child-
hood. We can't get around
the fact that our children
have a high possibility of
picking up some of
our same habits or
idiosyncrasies.
One of the blessings
of life is that, as long as
we have breath in our


bodies and are of a sound
mind, we will have an
opportunity to correct
our mistakes, change
our ways and improve our
lives physically, spiritually
and financially.
Whether we are rich
or struggling to survive,
working towards having
a pleasant, enjoyable
life without the many
stresses life can bring
is a common goal for
anyone on any level.
For anyone who is
in great physical
condition, has a perfect
spiritual relationship with
God, and has no financial
problems, more power
to you; but for the rest
of ui it's time to get busy.

TAX BREAKS FOR EDUCATION
Let Uncle Sam help pay for college. Consider the American
Opportunity tax credit of up to $2,500 a year for eligible
college students. The credit is available to single parents
with adjusted gross income of $90,000, or $180,000 for
couples filing jointly, but starts to phase out at incomes
of $80,000 or $160,000. It is good for 100 percent of the
first $2,000 spent for eligible educational expenses, plus 25
percent of the next $2,000.
Use the 529 college savings plan, too. Contributions are
deductible in some states, and funds used for tuition,
room and board, even books, are tax free. But you can't
"double-dip" and use both the tax credit and the 529 for
the same expenses. Solution: pay the first $4,000 of costs
from savings and tap the 529 for the rest of the expenses.
Grandpa can front-load a 529 plan for young grandchildren,
investing five years' worth of annual-gift-tax-exclusion at
one time.

Teacher raise proposal

from governor welcome
Is Gov. Rick Scott finally playing nice with teachers
because an election is coming up and his poll numbers are
so low?
Almost certainly.
But awarding $2,500 across-the-board pay raises to Florida
teachers, who are among the lowest paid in the nation, is the
right thing to do.
SThe governor's move is surprising because until now, rather
than pay raises, he's talked about one-time bonuses to top
performers.
SAnd when he first got to Tallahassee, the governor seemed
to buy into the demonization of teachers because their union,
along with the trial lawyers' association, is one of the last big
contributors to Democratic politics.
So it's welcome news to see the Republican governor
let up on and actually reward teachers. After all,
these are the people who nurture, educate and protect
our greatest treasures our children. And we can
only attract and retain the best teachers if we offer fair
compensation.
As it stands, the average Florida teacher makes
$45,723.- more than $10,000 below the national aver-
age of $56,069. And high health care costs for their
families, particularly in Broward as detailed in a recent
Sun Sentinel story, force many to seek health care
elsewhere.
The governor's call for higher salaries signals a shift in
his budget priorities. He said Wednesday his proposed
across-the-board pay raise would cost nearly half a
billion dollars next year. That means all of the state's
projected budget surplus of $437 million would go to
teachers. And it means his push for lower business
taxes and more economic incentives would have to be
put on hold.
"I've traveled the state and I've talked to teachers,"
Scott told reporters. "They're working tirelessly to make
sure our students have achievement. I'm very apprecia-
tive of what our teachers do."
Calling for pay raises won't make teachers quickly for-
get that Scott cut school spending by $1.35 billion his
first year in office, though he restored almost a billion
dollars last year. Neither are they happy that he pushed
a merit-pay system that ties their pay to standardized
test scores. Nor do they like the requirement he pushed
to make them contribute 3 percent of their pay to their
pensions.
"The fact that the governor is proposing raises after
he just balanced the state budget on the backs of the
state's middle class by imposing a 3 percent mandatory
retirement income tax on all public employees rings
pretty hollow for teachers ahd support staff," Broward
Teachers Union president Sharon Glickman told the
Sun Sentinel.
But if money for the proposed raises gets'through the
Legislature, we say "bravo."
Of course, teacher salaries are negotiated county by
county,.se Scott and the Legislature can only send the
money with a budget directive, not an iron-clad clause
to local school boards. Still, such a directive would
carry great weight and send a powerful signal that
Florida values its teachers.
At the same time, Scott wants to give $250 debit cards
to teachers, who often pay for a variety of classroom
supplies out of their own pockets. Again, welcome
news.
The governor may have political differences with the
teachers' union, and sometimes union protections do
keep marginal teachers in the classroom. But the vast
majority of Florida teachers are caring professionals
devoted to educating our kids and giving them a strong
foundation for life.
Putting a little more money in their pockets, after so
many years of hard knocks, tells teachers they are a pri-
ority and we appreciate them for teaching, protecting
and getting the best from our children, our future.

Obama's strategy to fire up supporters


resident Barack Obama is
converting his campaign
apparatus to a tax-exempt
organization aimed at pushing his
agenda. It's a bold but risky move.
The newly created Organizing
for Action will accept unlimited
contributions from individuals arid
corporations.
The strategy could be a way for
Obama to assure his legacy through
legislative accomplishments and
beat the second-term curse, a sup-
posed phenomenon of the modem
era that says most re-elected presi-
dents have less -than-successful
second terms.
Or the strategy cbuld backfire and
bring disillusionment to the ideal-
istic young people Obama hopes
to motivate. That would be more
than a setback to his progressive
agenda. That would be a curse that
could damn Democrats in future
elections.
Fred Wertheimer, a leading cam-
paign finance reformer, was among
the first to sound an alarm.
"It opens the door to opportuni-
ties for government corruption by
allowing corporations and individu-
als to provide unlimited amounts
of money to directly benefit the
president's interest and potentially
to receive government benefits
and favors in return," Wertheimer,
president of Democracy 21, said in
a statement. His group describes
itself as working to eliminate the
undue influence of big money in
American politics.
"This would take President
Obama about as far away as he
could possibly get from the goal he
set in 2008 to 'change the way busi-
ness is done in Washington,'" said
Wertheimer.
The last thing Democrats need is
to alienate the fans Obama brought
out in droves in 2008 and 2012.
Organizing for Action does plan
to disclose names of donors, even
though the law doesn't require it.
Aides told the NewYork Times they


MarshaMercer


were unsure whether individual
amounts would also be released. It
would help if they just said yes to
full transparency.
The new group is the successor to
Organizing for America, the Obama
campaign arm that operated as
part of the Democratic National
Committee. Organizing for Ac-
tion is separate from the national
party and is being chartered as a
501(c) (4) organization, which must
operate exclusively for the promo-
tion of social welfare. These groups
may lobby. Donations are generally
not tax deductible as charitable
contributions.
Obama's position on corporate
contributions evolved as he faced
competition from well-funded
Republicans. Wertheimer noted
that Obama had refused corporate
contributions for his 2009 inaugura-
tion. Planners of the 2012 Demo-
cratic National Convention initially
refusedccorporate cash but later
reversed themselves and accepted
$20 million from banks and other
sponsors. Obama accepted cor-
porate contributions for his 2013
inauguration, including $250,000
from ExxonMobil.
The Organizing for Action is being
ruo by some of Obama's closest
political advisers. Michelle Obama
announced the new grassroots ef-
fort in a video three days before the
inauguration. Typical of their grasp
of the obvious, news outlets mostly
focused on her new hairstyle.
It's "the next step in our grass-
roots movement and will be crucial
to finishing what we started," the
president wrote in a note on the


Organizing for Action website.
Organizing for Action plans a
grassroots structure with local
control while running expensive,
campaign-style TV ads.
Let's assume that supporters are
not turned off by the potential fat
cat influence on the second term.
Does that mean it's smooth sail-
ing for Organizing for Action? Not
exactly. Some Democrats worry
that the group will drain energy and
support from the party.
"We need a unified organization
that will bring about victories in
2013 and 2014, and we don't need
to be splitting our efforts," Fred
Hudson, vice chairman of theVir-
ginia Democratic party, told Beth
Reinhard of the National Journal.
"It's a recipe for how to lose an
election. We've been told there will
be no competition for fundraising,
but that's difficult for me to accept,
and there will certainly be com-
petition for staff and volunteers,"
Hudson said.
Jim Messina, Obama's 2012 cam-
paign manager and Organizing for
Action's chairman, said before the
'inauguration the group will focus
on gun control, immigration and
climate change.
Traditionally, a second-term presi-
dent has a short time to accomplish
anything. By the second year, atten-
tion shifts to the midterm congres-
sional elections, and by the third,
the next presidential campaign is
underway. The lame duck president
may find himself not only fighting
Sirrelevancy but scandal, as Nixon
and Clinton did.
In his inaugural address, Obama
emphasized "collective action."
He used the word "together" seven
times and "we" five dozen times in
15 minutes. You might say he was
organizing for action or for a strat-
egy that holds both promise and
peril for his second term.

30 pythons killed so
far in python hunt
MIAMI More than
1,000 people signed up
to hunt Burmese pythons
in the Florida Everglades,
but just a fraction of them
have been successful so
far.
The Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation
Commission said Friday
that 30 of the invasive
snakes have been killed
in the competition that
began Jan. 12.
Wildlife officials say
eradicating pythons from
the Everglades was never
the goal of the month-
long "Python Challenge."
Instead, they hoped to
raise awareness about the
snake's threat to native
wildlife and the fragile
Everglades ecosystem.
The snake faces both state
and federal bans.

The Department of

Rehabilitation Inc. was out
of compliance because it
was treating patients who
were head-injured but had
not suffered a traumatic
spinal cord or brain injury.
A judge ruled Friday that
the hospital's transitional

authorizes them to treat
both cases.

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
Defense attorney Michael Matters (left) talks to Geralyn Graham (center) in court in Miami
on Friday after Graham was convicted of kidnapping and child abuse charges but jurors were
unable to agree on a murder charge, leading to a mistrial on that count.


Jury: Woman guilty



of abuse, kidnapping


Mistrial
declared on
murder charge
The Associated Press

MIAMI A former
caretaker was convicted
Friday of child abuse and
kidnapping in a 4-year-
old foster child's disap-
pearance more than a
decade ago, but a mistrial
was declared on a murder
charge after jurors' vere
narrowly unable to agree.
The 12-person jury said
early on they were split
11-1 on whether Geralyn
Graham, 67, killed Rilya
Wilson and could not
persuade the holdout
overtwo days of delibera-
tions. The murder charge
carried a potential life


sentence, while the
charges on which Graham
was convicted carry po-
tential sentences of at
least 30 years behind
bars.
Assistant State Attorney
Joshua Weintraub said
the state would not try
Graham a second time
for first-degree murder.
Graham has long main-
tained her innocence.
Weintraub said the other
convictions would likely
keep Graham locked up
for life.
"The fact that they didn't
come back on a murder
charge doesn't mean that
justice was not done for
Rilya Wilson," Weintraub
said afterward.
Circuit Judge Marisa
Tinkler Mendez set sen-
tencing for Feb. 12.


Graham's attorneys said
they planned an appeal
and praised the lone juror
who held out.
Rilya vanished in late
2000 from Graham's home
but her disappearance
was not discovered for 15
months. That lapse led to
high-level resignations
at the state Department
of Children and Families
and passage of child wel-
fare reform laws.
The state's witness, ca-
reer criminal Robin Lunc-
eford, testified that Gra-
ham told her she believed
Rilya was evil.and pos-
sessed by demons, so Gra-
ham smothered the girl
with a pillow and buried
her near a body of water.
Graham met Lunceford in
jail while awaiting trial on
fraud charges.

FORT LAUDERDALE
- State Democrats ex-
pressed frustration with
state insurance regula-
tors Friday, accusing them
of dragging their feet on
drafting policies to com-
ply with the new federal
health overhaul.
For nearly two years af-
ter the Affordable Care Act
became law, Republican
Gov. Rick Scott and the
GOP-controlled Legisla-
ture had hoped the Su-
preme Court would over-
turn the law, but justices
upheld it.
"There was a philoso-
phy, an ideology that this
shouldn't be the law even
though it was the law. We
don't have a contingency
plan. We're reacting now
at the llth hour essential-
ly and we're flat-footed
and completely tnder-
prepared to implement
that law as it is," said Rep.
Dwight Dudley, a Demo-
crat from St. Petersburg.
A House committee


tasked with implement-
ing the law including set-
ting up ways people can
choose a health plan was
deluged with complicated
insurance regulations dur-
ing.a presentation in Tal-
lahassee about how to en-
sure that Florida statutes
comply with the new law,
leaving many with more
questions than answers.
Some wondered why the
state appears unprepared
nearly three years after the
law was passed.
"Are you saying the pre-
vious leaders of the House
and Senate and the gover-
nor instructed you not to
prepare to give us this in-
formation that we're look-
ing for now," asked Rep.
Perry Thurston, D-Fort
Lauderdale.
Wences Troncoso, dep-
uty commissioner of the


Life and health Florida Of-
fice of Insurance Regula-
tion, said his agency had
received a letter from for-
mer House Speaker Dean
Cannon. And Belinda
Miller, general counsel for
the office, said the staff
completed a draft of a bill
after the federal law was
passed but "we did not
pursue its adoption at that
time because there was no
appetite to do so."
Miller added that even if
the bill had been enacted
in 2010, it would have to
be amended as federal
health officials continue
to come out with new
regulations.
Republican Rep. Gayle
Harrell worried the agen-
cy doesn't have enough
.staff and a plan in place to
handle proposals during
the legislative session.

Court sets aside


two Anthony


convictions


The Associated Press

ORLANDO A Florida
appellate court on Friday
set aside two of the four
convictions Casey Antho-
ny faced for lying to de-
tectives during the inves-
tigation into her missing
2-year-old daughter.
Judges onthe 5th District
Court of Appeals agreed
with Anthony's attorneys
that two of the charges
constituted double jeop-
ardy, or being convicted
or .punished more than
once for the same crime.
"We cannot conclude
that the Legislature in-
tended to authorize sepa-
rate punishment for each
false statement made
during a single interview,"
the judges said in their
ruling.
Anthony was acquitted
of killing Caylee in 2011.
Jurors convicted her of
four counts of lying to
detectives, and her at-
torneys appealed those
convictions. Anthony was
sentenced to time served
for the misdemeanors.
She was sentenced to
a year of probation after
her release from jail for
an unrelated case. Her
whereabouts have been
kept secret since she was
released from state su-
pervision last year.
Jeff Ashton, one of the
prosecutors who tried
Anthony and who was
recently elected State At-
torney in the Orlando
area, said in a statement
that he expected the case
would be considered
closed once the trial court
drops the two counts.
Jurors determined that
Anthony lied when she
told detectives that she


worked at Universal Stu-
dios, that she had left
Caylee with
a babysitter
who kid-
napped the
girl, that
shehadtold
two friends
about her
daughter's
disappearance and that
she had received a phone
call from Caylee.
The appealsjudges ruled
that the trial court was
correct to allow Anthony's
statements to detectives
to be used during her
murder trial. Anthony's
attorneys had argued that
she was in police custody
at the time and hadn't
been read her Miranda
rights. They also had ar-
gued that Anthony should
have been convicted of
only a single count of ly-
ing because of the double
jeopardy concern.

THEASSOCIATED PRESS
Thousands of anti-abortion activists march past the Capitol to the Supreme Court in Washington
on Friday as they observe the 40th anniversary of the Roe v. Wade decision.


Abortion opponents



march in Washington


The Associated Press

WASHINGTON Thou-
sands of anti-abortion
demonstrators marched
through Washington to the
steps of the U.S. Supreme
Court on Friday to protest
the landmark decision that
legalized abortion.
The annual event took
on added significance for
many in the crowd since
it coincided with the 40th
anniversary of Roe v. Wade,
the Supreme Court, deci-
sion that created a consti-
tutional right to abortion
in some circumstances.
The demonstrators, car-
rying signs with messages
such as "Defend Life" and
"Defund Planned Parent-
hood," shouted chants in-
cluding "Hey, Hey, Ho, Ho,


Roe v. Wade has got to go."
They packed the National
Mall for the March of Life.
"I just felt this 40th year
marked a huge anniver-
sary for the law," said one
demonstrator, Pam Tino,
52, of Easton, Mass, who
also, participated several
years ago. "Forty is a very
important year in the Bible
as well, in terms of years in
the desert. And I just felt
like maybe this year that'
was going to be something
miraculous that might
happen. We might see
-something going forward
with the cause."
With the re-election of
President Barack Obama,
she added, "we just have
our walking papers. Now
we just feel like we have to
keep the battle up."


The large turnout re-
flected the ongoing rel-
evance of the abortion de-
bate four decades after the
decision.
It remains a divisive issue
with no dramatic shift in
viewpoint on either side; a
new Pew Research Center
poll finds 63 percent of U.S.
adults opposed to over-
turning Roe, compared to
60 percent in 1992. Earlier
this week, abortion op-
ponents marked the an-
niversary with prayers and
calls for more limits on
abortion rights. And even
as Obama reaffirmed his
commitment to "repro-
ductive freedom," state
legislatures continue to
consider restrictions on a
woman's ability to receive
an abortion.

Do penalties for smokers


and the obese make sense?


The Associated Press

NEW YORK Faced
with the high cost of car-
ing for smokers and over-
eaters, experts say society
must grapple with a blunt
question: Instead of try-
ing to penalize them and
change their ways, why
*not just let these health
sinners die?
Annual health care costs
are roughly $96 billion for
smokers and $147 billion
for the obese, the govern-
ment says. These costs
accompany sometimes
heroic attempts to pro-
long lives, including sur-
gery, chemotherapy and
other measures.
But despite'these rescue
attempts, smokers,tend to
die 10.years earlier on av-
erage, and the obese die
five to 12 years premature-
ly, according to various re-
searchers' estimates.
And attempts to curb
smoking and. unhealthy
eating frequently lead to
backlash: Witness the cur-
rent legal tussle over New
York City's first-of-its-kind
limits on the size of sugary
beverages and the vicious
fight last year in California
over a ballot proposal to
add a $1-per-pack ciga-
rette tax, which was ulti-
mately defeated.
"This is my life. I should
be able to do what I want,"
said Sebastian .Lopez,
a college student from
Queens, speaking last
September when the New
York City Board of Health
approved the soda size
rules.
Critics also contend
that tobacco- and calorie-
control measures place a
disproportionately heavy
burden on poor people.
That's because they:
) Smoke more than the
rich, and have higher obe-
sity rates.
n Have less money so
sales taxes hit them harder.
One study last year found
poor, nicotine-depen-
dent smokers in New York
a state with very high
cigarette taxes spent as
much as a quarter of their
entire income on smokes.
n Are less likely to have
Ja car' to shop elsewhere


if the corner bodega or
convenience store stops
stocking their vices.
Critics call these ap-
proaches unfair, and be-
lieve they have only a mar-
ginal effect. "Ultimately
these things are weak tea,"
said Dr. Scott Gottlieb, a
physician and fellow at
the right-of-center think
tank, the American Enter-
prise Institute.
Gottlieb's view is debat-
able. There are plenty of
public health researchers
that can show smoking
control measures have


brought down smoking
rates and who will argue
that smoking taxes are
not regressive so long as
money is earmarked for
programs that help poor
people quit smoking.
And debate they will.
For example, some studies
even suggest that because
smokers and obese peo-
ple die sooner, they may
actually cost society less
than healthy people who
live much longer and
develop chronic condi-
tions like Alzheimer's
disease.

Dolphin dies amid
canal's pollution
NEWYORK Marine
experts say a dolphin
seen shaking black gunk
from its snout after
wandering into a polluted
canal in NewYork may
well have been ill before it
lost its way and died.
The wayward dolphin
splashed around in
the filthy waters of the
Gowanus Canal before it
died Friday. The canal is a
Superfund site, where for
years factories and fuel
refineries operated. It
runs through an indus-
trial zone near some of
Brooklyn's wealthiest
neighborhoods.
Marine experts had
planned to help the dol-
phin on Saturday morn-
ing if it didn't get out of
the canal during high
tide. They had decided
to hold off intervening
Friday because of the
stress the dolphin might
have experienced in be-
ing captured.

Widow Alma Sequin has
had enough.
When a $50 Christmas-'
themed flower arrange-
ment she placed on her
late husband's grave went
missing, she knew she had
to do something to let the
people of Jackson County
know.
"For Christmas, I wanted
to put something special
out there," Sequin said of
the burial site of her late
husband, Vietnam veteran
Robert Sequin.
About a week before
the holiday, Mrs. Sequin'
purchased a wreath from
Lipford's Florist in Sneads,
and placed it at the family
plot in Cypress Cemetery.
When she returned short-
ly after Christmas, it was
gone.

flowers might not seem

Alma Sequin carries flowers to the grave of her late husband, Robert W. Seqqin, on Friday, Jan.
11, in-Cypress. The widow says a Christmas arrangement she brought to the site weeks earlier
was stolen.


like much to some, Sequin
says that for a person living
on a fixed income like,she
does, the loss was quite a
blow.
What was worse than
being out the cost of the


of crack cocaine with intent
to distribute, possession of
ammunition by a convict-
ed felon, and possession of
drug paraphernalia.
As law enforcement ar-
rived, contact was made
with Sandra Kay Morris,
who was departing Bell's
'residence, where, they
determined, she had pur-
chased a quantity of mari-
juana. Morris was placed
under arrest for possession
of marijuana, less than 20
grams.
All five individuals were
transported to and housed
in the Jackson County Jail
to await first appearance on
their respective charges.
The second investigation
started in June N012, when
members of the JCDTF be-
gan a series of undercover
purchases of marijuana
from Earnest Lidell Young
and Andrae Lanoris Young,
at their residence located at
877 Eighth Ave. in Gracev-
ille. A search warrant was
obtained for and served on
the Young residence on July
31,2012.


wreath was the feeling that
she -and her late husband
- had been disrespected.
In talks with family
and neighbors, stories of
similar incidents at the
cemetery were discussed.


During the search, offi-
cers seized approximately
16.5 pounds of compressed
marijuana, digital scales
and packaging material for
the distribution of marijua-
na, Hydrocodone contain-
ing medication that was
packaged consistent with
illegal distribution, around
$1,670 cash believed to be
proceeds of illegal drug
sales, and what JCDTF
describes as a "highly cus-
tomized" Chevrolet Ca-
price belonging to Andrae
Young.
Andrae, Earnest and
Benitrez Young were all
placed under arrest on that
date for possession of mar-
ijuana w/ intent to distrib-
ute.and possession of drug
paraphernalia.
Upon posting bond and
being released from the
Jackson County Jail on Aug.
5, 2012, JCDTF began re-
ceiving information that
Earnest and Andre Young
were again selling drugs
from their residence.
Since their release, an-
other series of undercover

graveyard was known as
a "party spot for teenag-
ers," but noticed no signs
of vandalism when her
wreath went missing. She
suspected theft, so she


purchases of marijuana
were made from Earnest
Young at the same Eighth
Avenue location. Another
search warrant, executed
Friday, Jan. 25, resulted in
contact being made with
Andrae Young, who was
arrested for.sale of a con-
trolled substance, mari-
juana. Further evidence
on the Young brothers' al-
leged marijuana distribu-
tion enterprise was gath-
ered during a search of the
premises.
Officials say Earnest
Young, who was not pres-
ent at the time of the
search, has not been lo--
cated as of the time of this
press release (Friday, Jan.
25).Warrants have been is-
sued for his arrest in Jack-
son County, on five counts
of sale of a controlled sub-
stance, marijuana.
Andrae Young, 30, of
Graceville, was transported
to and housed in the Jack-
son County Jail.
In a third and separate
case, an undercover inves-
tigation was conducted


I


with Lynwood Bruce Gar-
rett as the target.
During the past months,
JCDTF officers were able
to purchase a quantity of
powder cocaine from Gar-
rett and a warrant has been
issued for his arrest in Jack-
son County.
.The Jackson County
Sheriff's Office also seeks
a fourth individual on an
outstanding warrant for
obtaining a prescription
through fraud. In Novem-
ber 2012, Erin Elizabeth
Murray of Chattahoochee
obtained a prescription for
Hydrocodone from a doc-
tor. Murray in turn altered
the quantity of the pre-
scription and attempted to
pass it at a local pharmacy,
according to authorities.
Earnest Young, Lynwood'
Garrett and Erin Murray
are wanted by law en-
forcement. Anyone with
information as to their
whereabouts is asked to
call the Jackson County
Sheriff's Office at 850-482-

Major Donnie Branch,
witj the Jackson County
Sheriff's Office, reached
by phone on Friday, said
that he is familiar with a
recent incident in Cypress,
but didn't know of any oth-
er thefts at area cemeter-
ies that had been reported
recently.
Noting that most visits to
cemeteries occur during
the day, Branch advised
the public to keep an eye
out for unusual behavior.
"If you see someone in a
cemetery at an odd time,"
he said, "let us know so we
can check it out."
And that extra bit of at-
tention is part of what
Alma Sequin is hoping for.
"I just want the public to
know," she said, "so they
maybe they'll visit their
loved ones, take flowers....
and check up on them."

These sentimental
possessions are taking
a toll on their emo-
tional well-being, but
they are working their
way through it in order
to cope with the more
practical losses they
face.
They were provided
a two-or-three-night
stay at a local motel,
courtesy of the Ameri-
can Red Cross, but do
not know where they'll
next find housing.
They have relatives in
the area, but most of
their households are
already too full to take
in someone else, Jona-
than said.
They're not sure
whether they will be
able to rebuild the
house around its
frame; friends have
said it looks to be in
good enough shape to
repair but they're not
sure and are working
with their insurance
company to sort out
that matter.
Jonathan and his
three sisters, Jennifer,
Phyllis Holland and
Debra Sherman, grew
up in the house and
their children have
spent much time there.
Jennifer's children, Jer-
emy and Edward Wil-
liams, finished grow-
ing up there after their
mother's death. For
Betty, the loss of the
structure comes with
a painful realization
that the house, even if
it can be rehabilitated,
will never be quite
the same for all her
grandchildren, who
include Phyllis's son
and daughters, Tiffany
and Henry Barnes and
Jessica Adams, and
Debra's children Shan-
ta and Demetri Lovett,
and Tavis Sherman.
But the adults have
to put those thoughts
aside in order to cope
efficiently with the
more critical mat-
ters at hand. They're
scrambling for shelter
and hope'to find tem-
porary lodging as soon
as possible. The adults
are also concentrating
on trying to make life
continue as normally
as possible for Jona-
than's three children.
On Friday, for in-
stance, the youngsters
went to school as usual.
The mother of a child
who is friends with one
of the boys took them
all to school. It turns
out she lost a home to
fire a fewyears ago, and
knows the importance
of trying to normalize
conditions in the wake
of such a crisis. The
Hartsfield child who is
friends with her son is
going to stay overnight
at her house that eve-
ning, as well.
The family needs
almost everything in
their world replaced
- from clothes to ap-
pliances, televisions
and the PlayStation 3
with assorted games
that the children held
dear. Cash is also
needed as the Harts-
fields put their lives
back together.
Anyone who wants
to help with donations
of any kind can reach
Betty Hartsfield at 557-
7323. She said her spir-
its have been lifted by
the many people who
have already called
with thoughts of con-
cern for the family.

the country's worst bout of

Graceville edges byVernon in OT


BY DUSTIN KENT
dkent@jcfloridan.com

The Graceville Tigers earned
their ninth straight district win
Friday night in Vernon, holding
off the Yellowjackets 40-37 in
overtime in the regular season
district finale for both teams.
Rasheed Campbell scored
14 points and Devonte Merritt
added 10 for the Tigers, includ-
ing the go-ahead three-pointer
in overtime.
Only four Graceville play-
ers scored, with Marquis White
adding nine and Jared Padgett
seven, in a game that wasn't the


prettiest, but counts as a win all
the same for the Tigers.
"We had a lot of adversity and
didn't playthatwell, and we didn't
get our normal production out
of a couple of guys," GHS coach
Matt Anderson said after the
game. "But we were still able to
get a win, and that's always good
when some of your better play-
ers don't have their best games,
and that's what happened."
Graceville led by four at the

scored a career high 33 points
and brother Chai Baker added
26, as the Malone Tigers rolled
up another lopsided victory
over a Jackson County foe Fri-

dale Hornets 85-55.
The win marks the 12th
straight victory over county op-

this season for the Tigers, who
improved to 19-2 overall.
For Cottondale, it was a sixth
straight loss and one that was
rarely in doubt.
The Tigers scored the first 10

halftime, and used a 15-2 run in
the second half blow the game
open.
At the center of much of the
Malone onslaught was the 6-

eight of his 14 made field goals
coming on dunks.
"Itwas real fun tonight," theTi-

best, which is crash the boards
and dunk the ball."

The Chipola Indians baseball team
dropped its regular season opener in

falling to Calhoun Community Col-

The Indians struggled offensively


and defensively, committing five

"We did everything you can't do.
to win a game," Chipola coach Jeff
Jphnson said afterwards. "You walk
five, you have five errors, you can't
get runners in from second with no
outs and runners from third with less

base-running situations. It was not
very good."

Pirates pull away

Sneads senior point guard Devin Hayes knocked in
eight three-pointers on his way to 33 points to help
spark the Pirates to a 66-47 road victory over the Altha
Wildcats on Friday night.
It was Homecoming for the Wildcats, who came in
having won their last two district home games over
Vernon.and Cottondale and again looked primed to
pull an upset Friday.
Altha took a 43-41 lead into the fourth period, but
Sneads answered with a dominant final frame, out-
scoring the hosts 25-4 to blow the game open.
Darius Williams helped the Pirates close it out by
scoring 11 of his 17 points in the second half.
"We really had to work to get that win," Sneads
coach Kelvin Johnson said after the game. "That was
no easy win. The score was no indication of how close
the game was. Altha played very well. We just got a few
steals and some good transition baskets in the fourth
quarter'and made some easy layups. We just got roll-
ing real good."
Art Platts scored 16 points to lead Altha, with Kent
Rogers adding 14, including 11 in the first quarter.
"We did a little bit better job of containing him af-
ter that," Johnson said of Rogers' first period outburst.
* "Altha may not have the most athletic team, but they.
played extremely hard tonight. This is not the easiest
place in the world to play."
Sneads will get back in action Monday with a road
game against rival Blountstown, and will finish the
week at home against the Malone Tigers.

LAKE SEMINOLE
Bass fishing continues to be
fair. Largemouth activity over-
all is said to be sporadic. The
fish are awaiting a consistent
warm-up from average water
temperatures. Warmer water
should usher in a flurry of
bass activity. Right now, flip-
ping jigs in matted vegetation
can produce some pretty fair
catches. Rat-L-Traps fished
along the edges of grass
lines is a good pattern, as are
Carolina-rigs and drop-shots
along creek channels.
Crappies are reasonably
active at mid-range depths
and there is increased activ-
ity among the schools that
remain deep. Sizable recent
catches have been reported
and the individual fish have
been of very good size.
Minnows are the best bait
offerings.
Catfish have gotten slightly
more active of late, while
other species continue slow.

LAKE EUFAULA
Bass fishing is fair and
water level at.present dictates
targeting the banks and
fishing.the shoreline vegeta-
,tion. Simply find inundated
grass and work these flooded
areas with floating-worms,
lip-less crankbaits, small
shallow-running crankbaits
and spinnerbaits. "Swimming"
jigs tipped with plastic worms
has paid off for some in these
areas as well. If you vorm-fish
here, stay with a Texas-rig
presentation. Dark-colored
jigs and worms are best. For
largemouths that continue to
hold hard on the ledges, fish

deeper ledges, but for now are
suspended and slow to bite.
Crappies remain deep and
have slowed down. For now,
continue fishing minnows
and tipped jigs around deep
structure. Shallow up as the
water warms.
Bream and catfish remain
very slow for now.

LAKE ANDREWS/
CHATTAHOOCHEE
RIVER
The largemouths will be '
congregating on the main riv-
er'ledges, where it is possible
to catch one occasionally on
jigging spoons and jig-and-
pig combos. Fishing will be
slow, as the bass will not be
very active over the next few
days. On a positive note, the
few fish taken right now are
likely to be quality individuals.
Return to the creek mouths
with crankbaits and Texas-rigs
when the water warms.
Catfish will be slow, but now
is the time to look forward
to a warm-up and expect the
larger channel cats, blues,
and flatheads to become
more active in the tailwaters
soon.
Crappies are still slow and
will remain so for awhile. As
on the reservoirs, they are
due to become more active
with warmer weather.
Hybrids and bream con-
tinue on the slow side.

Dear Annie: I am honored to see citi-
zens and patriots step forward to honor
and support one of our nation's greatest
assets, the American veteran. Helping
those who have given their mind, body
and spirit in defense of our nation is wo-
ven into the fabric of our society. From
the RevolutionaryWar to the present,
everyday people donate their time and
expertise to help those who have served
on the frontlines of freedom.
Our veterans reflect all that is good in
our nation: honor, courage and com-
mitment. The volunteers who serve and
support our veterans bring that same
measure of greatness to their mission
each and every day.
Many of your readers join us each
February in the National Salute to Vet-
eran Patients. This program encourages
Americans to visit and volunteer at the
Department of Veterans Affairs medical
centers and to send letters of thanks or
valentines to those who have protected
our nation. This year's National Salute is
February 10-16.
Last year, more than 361,000 valentines
were received atVA medical centers, and
21,904 people visited nearly 82,493 vet-
eran patients. We have had an increasing
number of Americans participate in this
program each year, and 2012 was no ex-
Sception. I thank you and your readers for
your work in bringing attention to this
worthy cause. Of special note, VA
Voluntary Service recruited a total of
364 new volunteers during the week of
the 2012 Valentines for Veterans Concert
Series. This is an outstanding testament
to the ongoing support our veterans
receive at the community level.
On behalf of the Secretary of Veterans
Affairs, I encourage your thoughtful
readers again to take some time this
February to honor our veterans. Annie,
thank you for your support of this out-
standing program.
For more information regarding the
National Salute and volunteer opportu-
nities at a localVA medical center, please
visit VA's Voluntary Service web page at


www.volunteer.va.gov.
TOMMY S. SOWERS, PH.D.,
ASSISTANT SECRETARY FOR PUBLIC
AND INTERGOVERNMENTAL AFFAIRS,
WASHINGTON, D.C.

Dear Dr. Sowers: Every year, our readers
make us proud with their outpouring of
appreciation for our veterans through
the Valentines for Vets program.
Our veterans deserve our thanks and
appreciation. Sending a valentine or
volunteering at one of the VA medical
facilities is a wonderful way to express
our gratitude to those who have served
our country. The veterans would be es-
pecially thrilled if you could spend a few
minutes visiting and talking about their
families and hometowns. Tell them how
much you appreciate their service.
Teachers, you have always been won-
derfully supportive in making this a
class project, especially with those
charming and much-appreciated
handmade valentines. Encourage your
students to express their creativity while
'learning the satisfaction of doing for
others.
Every year, the dedicated members
of Camp Fire USA participate in this VA
program, and Salvation Army volunteers
distribute valentines, gifts and refresh-
.ments at various VA facilities around the
country. Concerts and other programs
are held across the country as part of
the National Salute to Veteran Patients
weeklong festivities.
If you do not live close enough to a
VA facility to drop off your valentines
in person, it's perfectly OK to put them
in the mail. Simply check your phone
book for the nearest VA facility, or go to
the VA website at www.va.gov. We can
never repay these Courageous veterans
for the sacrifices they have made on our
behalf, but we can take the time to let
them know they have not been forgot-
ten. Please remember our veterans this
Valentine's Day. We know of nothing else
that costs so little and brings so much
happiness. Marcy and Kathy

In this file photo, San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick throws a pass during the
first half ofthe NFC Championship game against the Falcons in Atlanta. The Baltimore Ravens
and San Francisco 49ers meet in Super Bowl XLVII on Sunday, Feb. 3, in New Orleans.

49ers' Kaepernickin hot


demand as pitchman


The Associated Press

MODESTO, Calif. It's
taken less than three
months for the nation's
football fans to become
familiar with Colin Kaepe-
rnick, NFL quarterback.
But shortly he and his
San Francisco 49er team-
mates return from the Su-
per Bowl in New Orleans,
another campaign will
start, one that will intro-
duce the sporting world to
Colin Kaepernick Inc.
Shawn Smith, the public
relations 'and marketing
director for X-A-M Sports
and also Kaepernick's
marketing agent, said she
has received at least 501
inquiries in the past three
weeks from companies
wanting to use Kaepernick
and/or his image in their
.marketing, and those are
in addition to the compa-


Chipola

make it 2-0.
The Indians got a run
backin the top of the fourth
when Ian Rice singled and
. eventually came around to
score after an attempted
steal of third resulted in an
errant throw from the Cal-
houn catcher that got into
left field.
But Calhoun added runs
in the fifth and the sixth,
taking advantage of anoth-
er Chipola error in the fifth
and three walks by reliever
Mikel Belcher in the sixth.
Belcher allowed two hits
and four walks in two in-
nings on the mound, while
the Marianna native Mad-
er went four innings in his
first college start and al-
lowed four hits, one walk,
and two strikeouts.


nies with which Smith has
been speaking for months.
"I'm not saying those are
50 six-figure offers," she
said. "Some are quirky."
While she couldn't be
specific as to which com-
panies soon will be featur-
ing Kaepernick in their ad-
vertising, Smith was able
to speak in generalities.
"I won't be surprised if
we're with a beverage com-
pany or having something
to, do with headphones,"
she said: "Those two make
a whole lot of sense. I
also won't be surprised if
he partners with a men's
grooming and personal
hygiene company.
"But Colin is a young guy
and he has a different im-
age from most NFL quar-
terbacks. It's important for
me as a marketing agent
to recognize and market
those differences."


The Indians had an op-
portunity for a big inning
when a walk to Bert Giv-
ens, a fielder's choice by
Josh Barber, and a single
by Daniel Mars loaded
the bases with two outs,
but they were unable to
'convert.
Mars had three of the six
Chipola hits, with Clayte
Rooks, Rice, and Chase
Scott each adding one.
But neither the offense
nor the defense was good
enough to satisfy Johnson.
"I thought we played
selfishly at the plate and
didn't do the things we try
to teach them to do," the
coach said. "There was
some individualistic stuff
going on. We just didn't
play very good. We had a
hard time catching the ball
and a hard time throwing'
the ball. It wasn't pretty at
all."


The endorsement deals
available to NFL quarter-
backs often exceed what
they can make on the field,
and that certainly could be
the case with Kaepernick,
at least initially.
He's in the second year
of a four-year, $5.1mil-
lion deal. This season,
he'll make $607,922 in sal-
ary and $556,688 in a pro-
rated signing bonus, for
a total from the 49ers of
$1,164,610. According to
Forbes, Peyton Manning
earns $10 million annually
in endorsements, while
little brother Eli rakes in
$8 million off the field.
New Orleans quarterback
Drew Brees cashes in with
$5 million in non-football
revenues, Tom Brady gath-
ers $4 million and Michael
Vick has signed endorse-
ment deals worth $2mil-
lion a year.


The coach said that while
the pitching wasn't quite as
much of a problem as the
hitting and the fielding, it
still wasn't what it needed
to be.
"We didn't pitch great,
but we didn't pitch awful.
We're not strong enough
yet to overcome an error
behind us here and there,
and then you throw a few
walks in there," he said.
"We didn't put them away
at times with our pitches.
Ultimately, it was probably
the errors and the lack of
doing anything offensively
that probably got us as
much as anything."
The Indians were sched-
uled to play two more
games Saturday in St. Pe-
tersburg, taking on State
College of Florida and
Palm Beach State before
ending the weekend today
against the host St. Pete.

Ravens migrate south


The Associated Press
OWINGS MILLS, Md.
--The music blared in the
Baltimore Ravens locker
room Saturday as the
players threw their foot-
ball gear into black duffel
bags lying in front of their
cubicles.
Next stop, New Orleans.
After one final practice
at their own training facil-
ity, the Super Bowl-bound
Ravens will take Sunday
off before heading for the
Big Easy on Monday af-
ternoon in anticipation of
their matchup on Feb. 3
against the San Francisco
49ers.
"We're right where we
want to be," wide receiver
Torrey Smith said. "Now
we have an opportunity
to play in the big one. But
at the end of the day, we're
still getting ready for a
football game."
Coach John Harbaugh
conducted practice from
Thursday through Satur-
day as if it was a normal
work week. They went
hard on Thursday and
Friday and eased up
Saturday.
"'We've had a great
week. We had an excel-
lent practice," Harbaugh
said after the closed two-
hour session. "The guys


are very sharp and they're
excited. We'll have to go
down there and do just as
well (or) do better."
The next time the Ra-
vens hit the practice field,
it will be in New Orleans.
This week, at least, there
*were no distractions.
s not going to change."
It was final practice at
the team's training com-
plex for Ray Lewis, who
intends to retire after the
Super Bowl. Center Matt
Birk has made no such
announcement, but there
is a possibility the 36-
year-old is also preparing
for his last game.
"I don't think like that,"
Birk said. 'I just try to live
in the moment. That's
just kind of my mindset.
I don't think about the
future or if this could be
it. It drives my wife nuts,
but that's just not how I


~3~L I


operate."
Now in his 15th NFL sea-
son the fourth with Bal-
timore Birk's knees are
scarred from several oper-
ations and he had surgery
during the offseason to
repair varicose veins in his
legs. But he played in all
16 games during the regu-
lar season and remained
solid in the middle of the
offensive line during the
postseason.
"I'm not sure about
Matt's plans," Harbaugh
said. "If he decides to
come back next year that
would be awesome. He's
smart, he's tough. To my
eye, he's playing the best
football that he's played
since he's been here, right
now. To have that be true
at the end of a (long) sea-
son is very impressive. We
would not be where we
are without Matt Birk."

Azarenka defends title U


The Associated Press

MELBOURNE, Austra-
lia Victoria Azarenka
had the bulk of the crowd
against her. The fireworks
were fizzling out, and when
she looked over the net she
saw Li Na crashing to the
court and almost knocking
herself out.
Considering the cascad-
ing criticism she'd encoun-
tered after her previous
win; Azarenka didn't need
the focus of the Australian
Open final to be on anoth-
er medical timeout.
So after defending her
title with a 4-6, 6-4, 6-3 vic-
tory over the sixth-seeded
Li in one of the most un-
usual finals ever at Mel-
bourne Park. Azarenka un-
derstandably dropped her
racket and cried tears of
relief late Saturday night.
She heaved as she
sobbed into a towel beside
the court, before regaining
her composure to collect
the trophy.
"It isn't easy, that's for
sure, but I knew what I had
to do," the 23-year-old Be-
larusian said. "I had to stay
calm. I had to stay posi-
tive. I just had to deal with
the things that came onto
me."
There were a lotof those
things squeezed into the 2-
hour, 40-minutenmatch. Li,
who was playing her sec-
ond Australian Open final
in three years, twisted her
ankle ard tumbled to the
court in the second and
third sets.
The second time was
on the point immediately
after a 10-minute delay
for the Australia Day fire-
works a familiar fixture
in downtown Melbourne
on Jan. 26, but not usually
coinciding with a final.
Li had been sitting in her
chair during the break,

which ended its district sea-
son at 6-6.

From Page lB
Tasherica McMillon led
the way for Sneads with
22 points, while Chasity
McGriff added 14, Aaliyah
Williams seven, and Logan
Neel six.
The Lady Pirates led by
nine points at halftime
and extended the lead to
45-29 at the end of three
quarters.
Shaniah Spellman had 14
points to lead Marianna,
with Latia Bass and Dani-
elle Holden adding seven


while Azarenka jogged and
swung her racket around
before leaving the court to
rub some liniment into her
legs to keep warm.
The 30-year-old Chinese
player had tumbled to the
court after twisting her left
ankle and had it taped af-
ter falling in the fifth game
of the second set. Imme-
diately after the fireworks
ceased, and with smoke
still in the air, she twisted
the ankle again, fell and hit
the back of her head on the
hard court.
The 2011 French Open
champion was treated
immediately by a tourna-
ment doctor and assessed
for a concussion in anoth-
er medical timeout before
resuming the match.
"I think I was a little bit
worried when I was fall-
ing," Li said, in her humor-
ous, self-deprecating fash-
ion. "Because two seconds
I couldn't really see any-
thing. It was totally black.
"So when the physio
come, she was like, 'Focus
on my finger.' I was laugh-
ing. I was thinking, 'This
is tennis court,, not like
hospital.'"
Li's injury was obvious
and attracted even more
support for her from the
15,000-strong crowd.
Azarenka had generated
some bad PR by taking
a medical timeout after
wasting five match points
on her own serve in her
semifinal win over Ameri-
can teenager Sloane Ste-
phens on Thursday. She
came back after the break
and finished off Stephens
in the next game, later tell-
ing an on-court interview-
er that she "almost did the
choke of the year."
She was accused of
gamesmanship and ma-
nipulating the rules to get
time to regain her com-

each.
The Lady Bulldogs were
victimized by 21 turnovers
and 5-of-19 shooting from
the free throw line.

Chipley 62-40 on Friday

posure against Stephens,
but defended herself by
saying she actually was
having difficulty breathing
because of a rib injury that
needed to be fixed.
That explanation didn't
convince everybody. So
when she walked onto Rod
Laver Arena on Saturday,
there were some people
who booed, and others
who heckled her or mim-
icked the distinctive hoot-
ing sound she makes when
she hits the ball.
"Unfortunately, you have
to go through some rough
patches to achieve great
things," she said. "That's
what makes it so special
for me. I went through
that, and I'm still able to
kiss that beautiful trophy."
She didn't hold a grudge.
"I was expecting way
worse, to be honest. What
can you do? You just have
to go out there and try to
play tennis in the end of the
day," she said. "It's a tennis
match, tennis battle, final
of the Australian Open. I
was there to play that.
"The things what hap-
pened in the past, I did
the best thing I could to
explain, and it was left be-
hind me already."
The match contained
plenty of nervy moments
and tension, and 16 ser-
vice breaks nine for Li.
But it also produced plenty
of winners and bravery on
big points.
Azarenka will retain the
No. 1 ranking she's mostly
held since her first Grand
Slam win in Melbourne
last year.
Li moved into the top
five and is heartened by a
recent trend of Australian
runner-ups winning the
French Open. She accom-
plished that in 2011, as did
Ana Ivanovic (2008) and
Maria Sharapova (2012).


Graceville will get another
shot at Malone on Mon-
day after suffering a 71-46
home loss to its county rival
on Jan. 17, and will finish
the week Friday with a road
game against Chipley.


For Sneads, Thursday's
victory wrapped up the
regular season with an im-
pressive 17-3 record, with
a loss to Malone on Dec.
22 the only defeat suffered
since falling to Cottondale
at home on Nov. 30.
The Lady Pirates will get
a first round bye in this
week's District 3-1A tour-
nament in Ponce de Leon,
opening up Tuesday night
at 6 p.m.'against the win-
ner of Monday night's con-
test between Cottondale
andVernon.
