Storm hits county hard


Strong winds leave



thousands without power


BY DEBORAH BUCKHALTER
dbucl halter@sjcfloridan comn

Wednesday's storm left
thousands of customers
in the dark as straight line
winds drove through Jack-
son County and the sur-
rounding areas.
In and immediately
around Marianna, Florida
Public Utilities had about
2,000 customers out of
power at one time during
the night, and pulled in
every crew member avail-
able to restore service,
according to the compa-
ny's Northwest Division
General Manger Buddy
Shelley.
The linemen already
on duty worked 16-hour
shifts, he said, and oth-
ers were called in for the
stretch. Among those were
four men who had worked
into the early morning
hours that same day to
replace a power pole dam-
aged in a traffic crash. All
agreed to come in for the
extra duty a few hours
later as well, despite it
interrupting their post-
crisis rest period, Shelley
said.
The crews and some
customers faced frustra-
tions through the night.
In some cases, the team
would restore power only
to be sent back because
the winds later knocked
out power in the same
area again.
Shelley said some cus-
tomers were without pow-
er for at least eight hours,:
but that all but a few:were
fully restored as of early
Thursday morning. He es-
timated that a half-dozen
or so were left to finish
around 9 a.m. Thursday,
and that a handful more

Crews work to get a new power pole into place Wednesday night in Graceville. The afternoon
storm that hit Jackson County brought widespread power outages to the Graceville and
Campbellton areas.


would have to wait for
their lines to be restored.
In those cases, the resi-
dents will have to first call
in an electrician to'replace
or reattach the service
equipment that the wind
ripped, away from their
homes.
West Florida Electric Co-
operative also had a busy
night in the Cottondale,
Campbellton and Gracev-
ille areas, as well as in the
rest of its regional service
area, which includes por-
tions of Jackson, Calhoun,
Holmes and Washington
counties. .
WFEC Manager of Mar-
keting and Communica-
tions Terry Mullen said a
total of 5,761 customers


were out of power for at
least some portion of the
afternoon or evening. Of
those, 1,578 are located
in Jackson County. In
Chipley alone, 2,200 cus-
tomers were out of power
at one point, he said, be-
cause the storm damaged
a central-feeding trans-
mission line that sends
power to the Chipley sub-
stations. WFEC has 4,600
miles of overhead power
lines, and "every avail-
able body" from district
centers in Bonifay, Sneads
and Graceville was on
the job to take care of the
lines Wednesday and early
Thursday morning, Mulr
len said.
Just as FPU crews had


to return to certain areas
to handle recurring out-
ages, WFEC linemen were
bounced back and forth to
different area as well. He
said 45 linemen worked
the emergency, which
began around 1 p.m.
Wednesday and lasted
until 3 a.m. Thursday. He
said that; in addition, 14
office staffmembers came
in from their off-duty time
to.work phones and direct
crews to the areas. Mullen
said he appreciated the
sacrifices of workers and
also had words of grati-
tude for customers.
"We appreciate their
patience, very much,"

SA en he ponders
some recent bad
Fortune in his
life, Robert Epps can not
help but wonder if Father
Time and Mother Nature
have conspired against
him.
Disabled in 2002 after a
fall from a radio tower, his
latest setback happened
in the storm that swept
through Jackson County
Wednesday night.
His 1999 Chevrolet S-10
was parked outside a
relative's home off Noland
Street in Marianna when
the wind started blowing
hard. One section of a tree
fell on his truck, shattering
some glass in the wind-
shield and damaging one
side to the point that it will
need repair before he can
drive it. He'd just paid the
truck off in September.
He'd left it parked in the
relative's yard long-term
because it isn't insured in
Florida. He and his wife


had moved here from
Mississippi not long ago,
and have just moved into
their own place further up
Noland Street.
Epps babysits the
relatives children from
time to time and was there
when the storm hit. Some-
times he uses the Jeep that
the family member owns
both to take the children
places and for his own
transportation needs, but
he doesn't like borrowing
wheels.
However, financial
realities have made it
necessary for him to do
so. Money is tight because
of the expenses associ-
ated with moving and
because his injuries don't
allow him to work full
time. But he was planning
to get the insurance for
his truck taken care of on
Feb. 19 once his wife's first
paycheck from her new
, job hit the bank. It's their
only form of independent
transportation.

Traffic stop leads drug discovery, arrest of two


Staff Report

An Interstate 10 traffic stop
conducted because of an al-
leged driving infraction led
to the discovery of drugs and
the arrest of the driver and
his passenger this week, ac-
cording to complaints that
the Jackson County Sheriff's
Office filed against the two
east Jackson County men.
Driver Tommy Jake Jack-
son, 21, of Grand Ridge, is
charged with possession of
marijuana with intent to dis-
tribute, possession of a con-
trolled substance-metham-
phetamine, and possession.
of drug paraphernalia.
His passenger, 21-year-old
Ritchie Cooper, of Sneads, is
charged with possession of


JacKson


listed chemicals.
According to the complaint,
the gray Toyota truck they
were traveling in was first
seen in the Walmart Super-
center parking lot off State
Road 71, where the driver
failed to come to a complete
stop at a stop sign in the lot.
The truck turned south onto
State Road 71 and then took
the eastbound on-ramp to
Interstate 10. On 1-10, the
truck crossed the.center line


of the two-lane travel path as
other vehicles were trying to
travel past the truck, accord-
ing to the complaint.
The truck was pulled over
by officers near the 147 mile
marker. Both Jackson and
Cooper "appeared to be ner-
vous," authorities reported
in the complaint, and a K-9
search dog was deployed to
sniff the air around the ve-
hicle. The dog alerted to the
smell of narcotics, officials
reported, and a search of the
truck ensued.
An officer found a zip-
pered pouch in the driver's
side floorboard, just in front
of the driver's seat, accord-
ing' to the complaint. The
bag contained cut straws, a
plastic bag containing about


an ounce of suspected mari-
juana, two rolled-up coffee
filters containing suspected
methamphetamine, digital
scales, a small plastic bag
containing about a gram
of suspected methamphet-
amine and a measuring
spoon, officials reported. In
the center console, officers
found a package of sandwich
bags, the complaint stated.
Officers also found two
boxes of pseudoephedrine
pills in the truck, and say
they learned that Cooper had
bought them at the Walmart
pharmacy.
Officials say their irivestiga-
tion also led to the discovery
that the pills were purchased
for the purpose of making
methamphetamine.

BCF welcomes new students for spring 2013


Special to the Floridan

At the beginning of each semes-
ter there is a look of excitement
on the faces of new students at
The Baptist College of Florida
(BCF) in Graceville as they begin
a new chapter in their lives. About
80 new students, including on-
line and distance sites, joined the
BCF family for the spring 2013
semester.
The new spring 2013 class gath-
ered for orientation on Jan. 17 to
learn more about the policies,
procedures and requirements
of being a BCF student. The new
students worshiped together in
a special chapel service with a
message from BCF Senior Vice
President R.C. Hammack, met
with their advisors, became more
acquainted with the campus and
registered for classes.
Among the new students,


Megan Andrews came 15 hours
from Maryland to attend The Bap-
tist College of Florida. Andrews
is a 2011 graduate of Pinehaven
Christian School of Saint Ignatius,
Mont. She is studying Christian
counseling and plans to use her
degree to minister in juvenile
detention centers.
Andrews says; "I came to BCF
for a solid biblical foundation; you
can tell people have Jesus here."
Andrews is one of the many stu-
dents who came to BCF to pre-
pare for areas of ministry, music,
business leadership, Christian
counseling, missions, history and
social studies, English, aviation
and education.
For more information on all of
the degree programs offered at
BCF, or to visit the campus that
is changing the world, please
call 800-328-2660 ext. 460 or visit
www.baptistcollege.edu.

BCF Jazz Band releases new album


Special to the Floridan

After many requests, the eclectic jazz
band from The Baptist College of Florida
(BCF) in Graceville, under the direction
of Professor Ron Branning has released
a CD of the groups' more popular songs.
The new CD includes jazz arrangements
of favorite hymns and frequently request-
ed songs such as "Amazing Grace" and
"Standing on the Promises." The CD also
features BCF alumnus and guest vocalist
Barol Bailey.
The BCF Jazz Band was established in
2002 in conjunction with the addition of
the music education degree. The group
performs both in schools and churches
all over the area and frequently travels
representing the college throughout the
southeastern United States. On Preview
Day, the Jazz Band is one of the featured
ensembles, that entertain prospective


students, parents, and guests when they
tour the campus.
The prestigious group is comprised of
BCF music majors, BCF guitar professor
Jay Erp and BCF Music and Worship Di-
vision Chair Bill Davis. Jazz legend and
local celebrity Bob Snyder, who served as
staff musician for Motown Records, Stax
Records and WJR Radio in the 60's, also
performs with the group.
"Our ultimate mission is to provide
our students with a great opportunity to
serve the Lord through this unique mu-
sic ministry," stated Branning. "It is our
prayer that the CD and the songs will be
uplifting and God honoring to all who
hear it."

CD or upcoming musical performances

Back in 1969, the same year as
Woodstock, Gallup Poll research-
ers asked Americans this ques-
tion: "Do you think it is wrong for a
man and a woman to have sexual rela-
tions before marriage, or not?"
"Yes, wrong," responded 68 percent of
those polled, while 21 percent said, "No,
not wrong." By 1973, the traditionalist
total affirming that premarital sex was
wrong was down to 47 percent and the
minority of those disagreeing rose to 43
percent. In 1991, only 40 percent con-
sidered premarital sex immoral, with
54 percent disagreeing. Anyone pay-
ing attention to the moral math could
see the trend. By 2001, the number of
Americans who took the conservative
stance was leveling off at 38 percent, but
the percentage of those embracing the
liberal position was up to 60 percent.
"Things have been pretty steady
recently among the Americans who are
religiously active," noted Ed Stetzer, the
president of LifeWay Research, which
is linked to the 16 million-member
Southern Baptist Convention. "The real
action has been on the other side of the
spectrum, among the people who are
atheists, or agnostics, or who have no
affiliation with any particular religious
group. Then you have the people that
I call the 'mushy middle,' who remain
connected to some religious faith, sort
of, but not active in any real sense
of the word.... That's where we're


seeing people changing their minds on
sexuality."
In a November 2012 survey by Life-
Way, 37 percent of adults
in the United States af-
firmed traditional teach-
ings that homosexual
behavior is sinful. This
finding was significant,
Tery since 44 percent took that
Mattingly stance in another survey
only 14 months earlier.
In light of these trends,
it's easy to see why the Rev. Louie Giglio,
an evangelical leader in campaigns
against human trafficking, was ac-
cused of anti-gay rhetoric and forced to
withdraw from giving the benediction
at Obama's second public inauguration.
In a sermon recorded 15 years earlier,
Giglio had said: "If you look at the coun-
sel of the word of God Old Testament,
New Testament you come quickly to
the conclusion that homosexuality is
not an alternate lifestyle.... Homosexu-
ality is sin."
Times have changed. Giglio's words,
said Stetzer, were "simply mainstream
Evangelical expressions of what tradi-
tional Christians have believed for 2,000
years.... But what we are learning is that
a growing majority of Americans no-
longer feel comfortable with words like
'sin.'"

Midland City hostage crisis ongoing


BY MATT ELOFSON
melofson@dothaneagle.com

The man believed to be holding
a young child hostage inside an
underground bunker may have,
spent up to eight days inside the
bunker in the past.
Pinckard Police Chief James Ar-
rington said the suspect, identi-,
fied by witnesses as 65-year-old
Jimmy Lee Dykes, is in a bunker
about four feet underground. He
estimated the bunker to be about
six feet by eight feet.
Arrington saidauthorities have
reason to believe what's hap-
pened is a hate crime because
of Dykes' sentiments against the
government.
"He's against -the government
startingwith Obama on down,"
Arrington said. "He doesn't like
law enforcement or the govern-
ment telling him what to do. He's
just a loner.'
Arrington went on to talk about
how the Dale County Sheriff's Of-
fice originally led the case, after'
Dykes reportedly shot and killed
school bus driver Charles Poland
before taking a 5-year-old boy
from the bus and into the un-
derground bunker. The Alabama
Bureau of Investigation took over
the operation, which Arrington
said has now been taken over by
the FBI, who are now trying to
end the standoff.
"I don't know how long it's going
to take," Arrington said. "They're
trying to negotiate him put.
They've talked to him and told
him they're not leaving."
Arrington said Dykes has been
known, in the past, to stay inside
thebunker for up to eight days.
Neighbors have said the boy

is being held in the homemade
bunker, possibly made of PVq
pipe, on Dykes' property.
Michael Senn, the pastor of
nearby Midway Assembly of God
Church; who lives near the private
dirt road, said he learned several
things from authorities, including
-how Dykes possibly had enough
food and supplies in the bunker
to last up to three weeks.
"They've been able to pass down
crayons, medication and food,"
Senn said. "They've been talking
to him pretty regularly through a
pipe."
Senn said he talked to one of
the children on the bus, who is
his neighbor's niece. She told him

and the shooting happened after

demanding two children between
6 and 8 years old.
Other children described seeing
and hearing four gunshots.
"We're just praying for a speedy,
safe release of the boy to his fam-
ily," Senn said.
Dykes' residence is just out-
side the Pinckard town limits,
and Arrington said their jurisdic-
tion only stretches about 400 feet
up Private Road 1539 where the
shooting happened. He said the
properties beyond 400 feet fall in
thq county's jurisdiction.
Ronda Wilbur, a neighbor who


lives across from Dykes, said
about 12 or 13 homes populate
the land on both sides of the dirt
road, which runs about a mile
off U.S. 231 North. She called
it a "very" rural area where she
could only see two other homes
from her house, including Dykes'
residence.
Pinckard Mayor Fred McNab

Gaetz touts funding for new transportation projects


From staff reports

In his Thursday email dispatch,
"Senator Don Gaetz reports to
Northwest'Florida," the Senate
president,putlined' plans for the
nearly $1 billion in accelerated
transportation funding that the
area will soon receive.
The 10 infrastructure projects
discussed, all aimed at improv-
ing the region's ports, roadways,
bridges and rail transportation,
were described as a way to help
the private sector create more
and better jobs.
"Hundreds of jobs will be cre-
ated during the engineering and
construction of these projects,"
Gaetz explained. "But the real
economic value is in building the
arteries that get products to and


from market. A burst of construc-
tion getting that infrastructure
in place will help
our communities
attract and' keep
growing businesses
that need skilled
workers for decades
to come."
Gaetz South of Chipley,
$44.9 million will
go toward multi-laning a 23-mile
stretch of SR 77 from the Bay
County line north to 1-10.
SR 79 from south' of Vernon
to Bonifay will be widened to a
four-lane divided highway. That
project's, construction contract
is set to be executed this month;
completion is due in 2017 at a
cost of $139 million..
Other projects mentioned by


Gaetz included:
a A new interchange at the in-
tersection of Highway 98 and
23rd Street in Panama City. Cost:
$85 million.
a FDOT has committed to work
with the Legislature to move up
(from 2018 to 2015) the expan-
sion and improvement of SR 123
in Okaloosa County. Estimated
cost: $20.6 million.
a Santa Rosa County will receive

SR 87 from Eglin AFB's boundary
to two miles south of the Yellow
River.
a Widening of US 29 from four
to six lanes from Nine Mile Road
to 1-10 in Escambia County. Con-
struction is planned for 2016.
Cost: $50.8 million.


a Replacement of Three Mile
Bridge on Highway 98 connecting
Gulf Breeze and Pensacola. Cost:
$595,600 to build. Construction is
set to begin in two years, follow-
ing acquisition of right of way and
environmental permits. Gaetz
emphasized the new bridge will
not be a toll bridge.

million to Northwest Florida's
three ports: Pensacola, Panama
City and Port St. Joe.

FROM THE FRONT & REGION

Now he doesn't know
what he'll do. Most of their
funds are tied'up in the,
move, and he is feeling
like a burden already be-
cause of the limits he faces
as the result of his dis-
ability. With the expense
of truck repairs looming,
without insurance to cover
that cost or money to buy
a replacement vehicle,
Epps is further conflicted
by the knowledge that he'll
probably have to keep


depending on someone
else's ride for longer than
he'd planned.
Epps, 39, said he tries to
clear his mind of all tlat
and keep moving forward.
But his more negative'
thoughts sometimes
linger over it and-the past
as well.
Coincidentally, it was1
weather like Wednesday's
that dealt another devas-
tating blow to the Epps
family not long ago. "
Their former home in
Mississippi was destroyed
in a weather event with
straight line winds a few
years ago. Epps was buy-


ing the home over time
in a rent-to-own arrange-
ment with the owner, a
farmer who he'd worked
for over many years. He
owed.$7;000 more on
the house when it was
destroyed. Like his truck,
it was also uninsured.
"It's in the middle of the
Delta, where there's noth-
ing around you but pecan
groves and cotton fields.
Whenever took it that we
would need insurance,"
Epps said. "I gave him a
little money per month
for the house and it was
almost ours. You start
wondering what's going


on when all this hap-
pens to you, but I have to
focus on the future and
just accept that this was
Mother Nature at work.
What I really hate more'
than anything else is hav-
ing to depend on other
people so much. I just
feel like a burden all the
time and that causes me,
a lot of anxiety. This is just
one more thihg I almost
had worked out, but now
I have to 'start on all over
again."
The Epps family moved
here a short time ago so
that his wife could be clos-
er to her aging parents,


who live in the Panama
City area.
Epps was 50 feet up in'
Sthe air when he fell from
a radio tower several
years ago. His safety cord
initially kept him from
plunging straight to the,
ground from that height,
but snapped after catch-
ing him up at 20 feet, he
said.
He injured his legs and
his back in the fall, and
working in a similar work
position is not possible. It
is also difficult to work an
eight-hour shift, 40 hours
a week, in any field.
Epps said he's trying


to keep a positive view
despite the challenges that
lie ahead.
He's glad no one in the
relative's home was hurt
in the storm, for instance.
He said the house received
some. minor damage and
that a fence on the prop-
erty was destroyed.
He found a silver lining
in that, however. Wednes-
day's storm did far
less damage to the rela-
tive's home than a previ-
ous storm had caused. He
said he understands that
an entire section of the
house had to be rebuilt
that time.

SMalian women laugh as one pulls off her veil saying she doesn't
need it any longer in the central market in Gao, Northern Mali,
on Wednesday.


Timbuktu revels


in new freedom


but fears linger
MM fin'


The Associated Press

TIMBUKTU, Mali A'
leaflet listing the regula-
tions for women under
Islamist rule now lies in
dirt here at the tribunal in
Timbuktu. Rule No. 1: The
veil should cover the entire
body. Rule No. 4: The veil
cannot be colored. And
Rule No. 8: The woman
should not perfume her-
self after putting on the all-
enveloping fabric.
Several days after French
special forces -parachuted
in and liberated this sto-
ried city, there is a growing
sense of freedom. Though
in the houses immediately
facing the Islamic tribunal,.
many of the 8- and 9-year-
old girls are still wearing
the head covering.
"It is out of fear of the Is-
lamists that they still wear
this, says Diahara Adjanga,
the mother of one girl said
Thursday."They hit every-
one even children."
The Islamists seized con-
trol of Timbuktu and the
other northern provincial
capitals of Gao and Kidal
last April. During the nearly
10 months of their rule, the
al-Qaida-linked extremists
imposed harsh regulations
for women and publicly
whipped those who went
in publicwithout veils.


Across northern Mali, the
Islamists stoned to death a
couple accused of adultery,
and amputated the hands
of suspected thieves in ac-
tions reminiscent of the
Taliban in Afghanistan.
The French military
launched an intervention
to oust the Islamists from
power in northern Mali on
Jan. 11 and rapidly forced
their retreats from the ma-
jor towns in less than three
weeks' time.
Fatouma Traore, 21, said
that there. was one com-
mander who was especial-
ly brutal to the women in
Timbuktu.
"We don't want the army
to catch him. It's the wom-
en who want to arrest him
so that we can kill him
ourselves. ... Even if you're
talking to your own blood
brother on the stoop of
your house, they hit you.
Even if you are wearing the
veil, and it happens to slip
off, they hit you.
"This man, Ahmed
Moussa, he made life mis-
erable for women. Even an
old grandmother if she's
not covered up, he would
hit her."
She picks up her 1-year-
old niece and hoists her
on one hip, saying: "We
even bought a veil for this
baby."


Iran says itwill speed
up nuclear program
VIENNA-- In a defiant
move ahead of nuclear
talks, Iran has announced
plans to vastly increase its
pace of uranium enrich-
ment, which can make
both reactor fuel and the
fissile core of warheads.
Eager to avoid scuttling
those negotiations, world
powers are keeping their
response Jow-key.
Iran told the Interna-
tional Atomic Energy
Agency of its intentions
last week, and the IAEA
informed member nations
in an internal note seen by
The Associated Press on
Thursday.

Nightclub fire causes
regional reaction
SANTA MARIA, Brazil
Brazilian authorities
inspected and shuttered
night spots around the
country on Thursday as
part of a crackdown on
unsafe public spaces after
a deadly nightclub fire
left 235 people dead and
shocked the nation.
Officials in Venezuela,
Nicaragua and Mexico
followed Brazil's example
and tightened scrutiny on
their own nightclubs.
The action comes just a
week before Carnival cel-
ebrations get under way
across Brazil and much of
Latin America, with revel-
ers set to pack streets and
popular venues.
Inspectors in the Ama-
zon city of Manaus have
ordered the temporary
closure of some 58 bars,
nightclubs and other
public buildings, the city's

Egypt's police regain
notoriety
CAIRO -With near
impunity and the backing
of the Islamist president,
Egyptian police have been
accused of firing wildly
at protesters, beating
them and lashing out with
deadly force in clashes
across much of the coun-
try the past week, regain-
ing their Hosni Mubarak-
Sera notoriety as a tool of
repression.
In the process, nearly 60
people have been killed
and hundreds injured, and
the security forces have
re-emerged as a signifi-
. cant political player after
spending the two years
since Mubarak's ouster
on the sidelines, sulking
or unwilling to fully take
back the streets.
Moreover, President
Mohammed Morsi, whose
Muslim Brotherhood was
long oppressed by the
security forces, has made
it clear that he needs
the police on his side to
protect his still shaky grip
on power.

Fift-seven rhinos
killed In South Africa
JOHANNESBURG Of-
ficials in South Africa say
that 57 rhinos have been
killed by poachers across
the country so far this year.
The Department of
Environmental Affairs
said Thursday that recent
floods in Kruger National
Park, thick vegetation and
two weeks of bright moon-
light contributed to the
high number of deaths.
The department said 18
suspected poachers have
been arrested this year.

Syria threatens retaliation on Israeli


The Associated Press


BEIRUT Syria threat-
ened Thursday to retaliate
for an Israeli airstrike and
its ally Iran said the Jewish
state will regret the attack.
Syria sent a letter to the
U.N. Secretary-General
stressing the country's
"right to defend itself, its
territory and sovereignty"
and holding Israel and its
supporters accountable.

denied there was any

low-flying Israeli jets had
crossed into their country
over the Israeli-occupied


Golan Heights to bomb a

near Damascus.
It said the target was
in the area of Jamraya,
northwest of Damascus
and about 10 miles from
the Lebanese border.
Maj. Gen. Abdul-Aziz
Jassem al-Shallal, who in
December became one
of the most senior Syrian
army officers to defect;
told The Associated Press
by telephone from Tur-
key that the site they said
was targeted is a "major
and well-known" center to
develop weapons known
as the Scientific Research
Center.
Al-Shallal, who until his
defection was command-
er of the military police,
said no chemical or non-
conventional weapons are
at the site. He added that
foreign experts, includ-
ing Russians and Iranians,
are usually present at such
centers.
Syrian Ambassador to
Lebanon Ali Abdul-Karim
Ali threatened retribution
for the Israeli airstrike,
saying Damascus "has the
option and the capacity to
surprise in retaliation."


Israel may feel need to strike Syria again


The Associated Press

BEIRUT An Israeli
air attack staged in Syria
this week maybe a sign of
things to come.
Israeli military officials
appear to have concluded
that the risks of attack-
ing Syria are worth tak-
ing when compared to
the dangers of allowing
sophisticated weapons to
reach Hezbollah guerrillas
in neighboring Lebanon.
With Syrian President
Bashar Assad's grip on
power weakening, Israeli
officials fear he could soon
lose control over his sub-
stantial arsenal of chemi-
cal and advanced weap-
ons, which could slip into
the hands of Hezbollah or
other hostile groups.These
concerns, combined with
Hezbollah's own domestic
problems,- mean further
military action could be
likely.
Tzachi Hanegbi, an
incoming lawmaker in
Prime Minister Benjamin
Netanyahu's Likud Party.
and a former chairman of
parliament's influential
foreign affairs and de-
fense committee, signaled
Thursday that Israel could
be compelled to act on its
own. While Israel's prefer-
ence is for Western powers
to gain control over Syria's
arms stockpile, he said
there are no signs of that


happening.
"Israel finds itself, like
it has many times in the
past, facing a dilemma
that only It knows how to
respond to. And it could
well be that we will reach
a stage where we will
have to make decisions,"
Hanegbi told Israel's Army
Radio Thursday. Hanegbi,
like other Israeli officials,
would not confirm Is-
raeli involvement in the
airstrike.
. In this week's incident,
Israeli warplanes conduct-
ed a rare airstrike inside
Syria, according to U.S. of-
ficials who said the target
was a convoy believed to
bq carrying anti-aircraft
weapons bound for Hez-
bollah, the powerful Leba-
nese militant group allied.
with Syria and Iran.
The Syrian military has
denied the existence of
any weapons shipment
and said a military re-
search facility outside Da-
mascus was hit.
On Thursday, Syria
threatened to retaliate,
while Hezbollah con-
demned the attack as
"barbaric aggression."
Iran, which supplies arms
to Syria, Hezbollah and
the Hamas militant group
in Gaza, said the.airstrike
would have significant
implications for Israel.
Syrian ally Russia said it
appeared to be an unpro-

voked attack on a sover-
eign nation.
Syria's ambassador to
Lebanon, Ali Abdul-Karim
Ali, said Damascus "has
the option and the capac-
ity to surprise in retalia-
tion." He told Hezbollah's
al-Ahd news website that
it was up to the relevant
authorities to choose the
time and place.
SFor now, Israeli officials
seem to be playing down
the threats.

out of the belief that Iran
and Hezbolah won't retal-
iate. The question is, 'Are
they right or not?'" said
Moshe Maoz, a professor
emeritus at Hebrew Uni-
versity who specializes in


Syria.
Officials believe that
Assad's position in Syria
is so precarious that he
cannot risk opening a new
front with Israel. With an
estimated 60,000 Syrians
killed in the civil war, Is-
raeli officials also think it's
too late for Assad to rally
his bitterly divided nation
behind him.

The Graceville Tigers will get
another chance to get a win over
one of their arch rivals tonight on
the road, as they head to ChipleN
to take on the rival Tigers in a re-
match of a holly-contested game
earlier this season.
Graceville (15-9) almost pulled
off the upset in the first meeting
Dec. 1-1 at home. taking a 41-34
halftime lead before Chipley ral-
lied in the second half to prevail
72-68 thanks to big performances
from'star guards Trent Forrest and
T'rome Sharpe.
Despite the defeat, GHS coach
Matt Anderson viewed the effort
as a positive sign that his team was
ready to turn things around after
a slow start, and the Tigers have
done just that, winning 11 of 14
games since that loss to Chipley.
"1 feel like the first game with


Chipley was the first time that we
played close to our potential at
that time of the year," Anderson
said Thursday. "I think it will take
at least that knd 'of effort to play
them close again. But I think we've
gotten better, and they've gotten
better too. Hopefully, both teams
play well and it's a fun game for the
fans to watch."
Chipley moved to 7-0 with that
win, but the Tigers.have lost four
games since.
However. Anderson said that
having watched CHS three times
over that span, he knows that the
Song Chipley team has improved.
a good deal.
"They're definitely better and
more seasoned," he said. "They're
very difficult to guard. They've got
a lot of guys who can shoot it and
two of the best players in the area.
They can do a lot of different things

Setting sights higher


Lady Bulldogs

aiming for a

better showing

this season

dcenrit,'lcloridan cor

After another strong season capped
by a second straight district title, the
Marianna Lady Bulldogs will look to
take the next step and make a deep
postseason run this year thanks to a
strong returning core of players and a
pair of dynamic senior sluggers.
Marianna had an up and down sea-
son in 2012, finishing 9-15 against
a difficult non-district schedule but
ending the year on a strong note
by beating Pensacola Catholic for
the league title and making a third
straight postseason appearance.
The Lady Bulldogs graduated just
one starter off of that team, so they
come into the 2013 campaign look-
ing for big things with an experienced
squad.
"I think we've got a real good nucle-
us back, so we're expecting to be bet-
ter this year," MHS coach Scott Wig-
gins said. "I think our team chemistry
is already better. Everybody seems
to be on the same page this year.
Practices have been real upbeat and
the kids are working real hard and
busting their tail to get better. We've
got kids putting in extra work even
when we don't have practice. That's a

a game of first-place Northwest in
thie Panhandle Conference stand-
ings after starting out 1-2.
But at 4-2 in the league, the Indi-
ans are still chasing the 6-1 Raiders,


and games like Saturday's are es-
sential to win if Chipola is to make a
tun at a Panhandle title.
If that's not motivation enough,
the Indians need only look back to
the first meeting with Pensacola
State on lan. 15 in Marianna, which
the Pirates won 45-42 to send the
Indians to a 1-2 league record.
But Chipola coach Patrick Blake
said his rteam has larger concerns
than getting payback.
"We're definitely excited, but,
more than just focusing on revenge,
it's about trying to keep on improv-
ing every game as we have with
our last three performances. I still
feel like we've got to get alot better

who form a potent punch,
in the middle of the Mari-
anna batting order.
Last season, the two
combined for 59 hits and
56 RBI, with Lipford lead-
ing the team with four
home runs, while Bas-
ford had a team-best 10
doubles.
They'll need to have an-
other big year in the heart
of the lineup if the Lady
Bulldogs are to achieve
any of their goals.
"We're looking for them
to be leaders for us," Wig-
gins said of Lipford and
Basford. "They have to
step up and take that
leadership role that I think
they've earned. The girls
are going to look for them
to be big leaders, and we're
looking for them to have
even better seasons than
they've had. They're put-
ting in the extra effort and
the extra work, and they
want to make their senior
year one to remember."
Marianna will also look
to sophomore outfielder
Taniyah Robinson to again
be the table setter from
her lead-off spot, where
she had an outstanding
freshman season in bat-
ting .364 with team highs
in stolen bases (15) and
runs (24).
But as is often the case
with softball, a team's suc-
cess or failure ultimately
comes down to pitching,
and the Lady Bulldogs
will rotate three different
pitchers this season, in-
cluding a pair of newcom-
ers in Wakulla transfer
Taylor Hussey and fresh-
man Kayleigh Temples.
Hussey had an excellent
sophomore season .for
Wakulla in 2012, posting
a 1.87 Earned Run Aver-
age in 101 1/3 innings and
winning eight games.

and hurt you in a lot of dif-
ferent ways. You have to
be very sound defensively
to stay in the game with
them."
The sophomore Sharpe
and the freshman Forrest
combined for 47 points
in the first meeting with
Graceville, and the two
have been a dynamic scor-
ing duo all season long.
The 6-fool-4 Forrest is
leading the team with 21.8
points per game, while the
6-foot Sharpe is putting in
18 points per night.
Andersonsaid each player
poses unique problems for
a defense.
"Trent with his height and
for his age is just so skilled,"
the coach said. "He sees
the floor well, can shoot
the three, and he can fin-
ish at the rim or above the
rim. He's a very cerebral
type player and you rarely
see that in a freshman. You.
don't stop kids like him; you
just attempt to slow them
down and that's what we'll
try to, do.
"Sharpe is just so quick.
and so athletic, and he can
shoot it from so deep, that it
makes him extremely hard
to guard. If you extend out
on him where you need to,
he's so quick and strong
that he goes right by you.
But if you lay off of him, he
shoots it from 22-23 feet
out and he's very capable of
knocking shots down from
that distance.
"It's tough to have two
players of that caliber on a
1A team. It's unusual."
Graceville has tried to
have a more balanced ap-
proach this season, with
senior forward Marquis
White again leading the
team in scoring for a sec-
ond straight season, but
also getting help from fel-
low seniors like point guard

anna Willis, who went 7

No. 1 starter, but one that
Wiggins said he is very
confident in going into
the year.
"It's going to be a real
nice luxury and advan-
tage to have three pitchers
that can all contribute,"
the coach said. "We'll just
play (the rotation) by ear.
If one gets hot, I'm sure
we'll go with her a lot if
she's on, but I'll try to split
it up so that they all, get
playing time. I'm hoping
we'll be able to put any of
the three in the game And
still get our results."
However, the biggest
problem the Lady Bull-
dogs faced last season
wasn't pitching or hit-
ting, but rather defense,
where Marianna commit-
ted 87 errors in 24 games,
far too many for Wiggins'
satisfaction.
"We've got to play the
defensive side a little bet-
ter," he said. "We cannot
make as many errors as we
did last year. We just have
to be more 'consistent
on defense. I think we're
moving in that direction,
though. The kids are tak-
ing a ton of ground balls
and fly balls and they've
been working extremely
hard on defense. We've
been stressing that offense
wins games, but defense
wins championships."
The Lady Bulldogs will
play a preseason double-
header against Niceville
on Saturday at home, and
will open the regular sea-
son on Feb. 7 at Mosley.

home game for Marian-
na will be Feb. 8 against

Anderson said if his team
is to geta win over a club the
caliber of Chipley, everyone
will need to contribute.
"We can't depend on one
or two players to give the
production that Chipley's
top two players pretty much
always give them," he said.
"Ours will be divided hope-
fully between four or five.
players, and if we can get
that, which we're capable
of, then we'll have a shot."
It's a game that is strictly
about pride for both teams,,
who have district tourna-
ments to look forward to
next week, but Anderson
said he does believe that a
good performance tonight
could be a good boost for
his Tigers going into the
postseason.
"It's a game that helps us
get ready for the playoffs. If
you play a team like Chipley,
they can't do anything but
expose the things you need
to work on," he said. "I hope
what they expose is some
things we're doing well right
now. If they don't bring out
the best in you, you're going
to get beat badly.
"You want to be playing
your best at this time of the
year, so this type of game is
perfect. We're probably not
going to see a team in the
playoffs that is as good as
Chipley. Except for Malone,
Chipley is about as good as
it gets in 1A."
The game will tip at 7
p.m.

Lady Indians


not overlooking


Pirates matchup

BY DUSTIN KENT
dkent@jcfloridan.com

The No. 8 Chipola Lady Indians will try to keep
pace with first-place Gulf Coast State and Northwest
Florida State on Saturday night when they travel to
Pensacola State to take on a winless Lady Pirates
team at 5:30 p.m..
Chipola (19-3 overall, 4-2 in the Panhandle Confer-
ence) trails the Lady Commodores and Lady Raid-
ers (5-2 each) by a half-game, but can tie Gulf Coast
with a win Saturday and possibly surpass Northwest
Florida State depending on the outcome of the Lady
Raiders' game against Tallahassee on Saturday.
The Lady Indians took the first meeting with Pen-
sacola State 67-54 on Jan. 15 at home, but coach Greg
Franklin said that making it two in a row over the 0-6
Lady Pirates won't be as easy as one might suspect.
"It's a very capable team," the coach said of Pen-
sacola. "They've been in games with a lot of people.
They haven't been just totally, blown away. They
haven't picked up their first conference win yet, but
you look at the teams they've played and how the
games have gone, that's a little deceiving. No matter
who you play on the road, you've got to make sure
you're very in-tuned and very intense and ready to
go."
Chipola is coming off of an important 61-58 road
win over Northwest Florida State last weekend, a
game in which the Lady Indians trailed 34-21 at half-
time before storming back in the second half.
With that victory, the Lady Indians put themselves
in prime position to make a run at the conference
title, as well as one big step closer to clinching one of
the Panhandle's three state tournament berths.
With a win Saturday and a Northwest victory over
TCC, Chipola would be three games clear of the
fourth place Lady Eagles with five conference games
to play.
"We're in a very good position," Franklin said. "But
the sting of losing two ballgames by a grand total of
three points is still there. We had the ball with our
own destiny in our hands to change that and we
didn't do it. But it also tells us that we're in every
basketball game we play and there's no one in this
league we can't play with and beat.
"But these last three weeks is where you separate
yourself from the pack by being intense every game.
Some teams just hang around, some nose-dive, and
some raise their game up. We're seeing some light at
the end of the tunnel that we're going to raise up."
The Lady Pirates are coming off of a 51-36 loss to
Northwest, which followed an 86-45 defeat at the
hands of Gulf Coast.
Still, Franklin said he isn't expecting anything to
come easy Saturday.
"We don't take anybody for granted. We're prepar-
ing for this game like we're playing the No. 1 team in
the country," he said. "It's a tough place to play, so
we've got to go there and be focused and ready to
go. Every game is big and every game counts when
you're trying to win the Panhandle Conference and
trying to get to the state tournament. You have to
win these basketball games. These are the games we
have to get. I
"We control our own destiny now. If we win the
next two ballgames, I feel like we're in the state tour-
nament for sure."

defensively and get
more stops to take that
next step and play a
complete game."
Defense wasn't as
much the issue in the
first game against the
Pirates, which featured
24 percent shooting for
the Indians, who also
had 14 turnovers to just
six assists.
But the Indians -have
since changed up their
style of play, employ-
ing a full-court press
and playing at a faster
tempo that has worked
to Chipola's strengths of
quickness and depth.
Blake said it's impera-
tive that his team con-
tinue to push the pace
Saturday and not have a
repeat of the first meet-
ing's half-court slugfest.
"The one thing I took
from the last game was
that I had to do a bet-
ter job of-imposing our
identity on teams and
not allowing a team to
dictate how we play,"
the first-year coach
said. "We're going to go
into a very, tough en-
vironment (Saturday)
and try to speed them
up, get them to turn the
ball over and take tough
shots. We need to get
out in the open floor
and get the game .how
we like to play."
The Pirates haven't
much succeBs since
beating the Indians,
dropping two in a row,
including a 99-64 loss to
the Raiders on Wednes-
day, to fall to 2-4 in the
conference.
That makes Saturday's
game a must-win for
the Pirates, who were
similarly desperate for a
victory when they came
into Chipola after an 0-2
start in the league.
"It's kind of the same
situation as last time for
them when they came in
0-2 and needing a win,"
Blake said of the Pirates.
"Their backs are against
the wall. They did a
great job of coming in
and taking the game
away from us last time.
This is a similar situa-
tion. They're very well-
coached and very tough
and determined. We'll
get their best effort.
They're not going to lie
down. They're going to
do everything they can
to get this win."
The game will tip at
7:30 p.m. following the
women's game at 5:30
p.m.

Super Bowl can't wash away painful memories


NEW ORLEANS
Lance Kaepernick was
23 days old when he
died.
He seemed normal when
his parents brought him
home. Then everything,
suddenly, went tragically
wrong. Two open heart
surgeries couldn't save the
tiny baby Rick and Teresa
Kaepernick had so joyfully
welcomed into their lives.
Their next son never
made it out of the hospi-
tal. Kent Kaepernick was
4 days old when he died,
also, of a heart defect.
"You're 25, 26 and you
have two sons buried;"
Rick Kaepernick said. "You
grow up in a hurry."
A daughter, Devon,
would follow, joining their
healthy, first-born son,
Kyle. By then, though,
the Kaepernicks were
done taking chances and
doctors warned them
against trying for another
pregnancy.
"Maybe the kids would'
have lived today with all
the advances that have
been made," Rick said.
"But it just wasn't to be."
But the yearning didn't
stop, and one day Teresa
told her husband she was
ready for another baby.
Their new son was 5
weeks old when they first
held him at the Lutheran
Social Services office in
Appleton, Wis. He was
healthy, vibrant, and full
of life.
On Sunday he'll be be-
hind center, trying to win
a Super Bowl for the San
Francisco 49ers.
"He's ready to roll," Rick
Kaepernick said this week
from his hotel room in this
party town. "He's pretty
focused."
ffthstory of Colin
Kaepernick's meteoric
rise from obscurity to
superstar in the mak-
ing.is a remarkable one,
the story of his life bears
some telling, too. Born to
a teenager in Wisconsin a
quarter century ago, the
only memories he has of
hislearlylife is with the
couple who adopted him.
He doesn't liketo talk
about it, and has declined
chances to meet with his
birth mother. For their'
part, the Kaepernicks
particularly dislike it when
people refer to their son as
adopted.
Of course, they couldn't
have imagined when they
began the process'that
the offspring of a blonde,
athletic mother and.an
African-American father
who was out of the.picture
before he was born, would
be a star quarterback.
"At the end of the day
he's just our son," Rick
said.
The Kaepernicks will be
in the stands at the Super-
dome on Sunday rooting
for him. So will about 15
family members, who
have cheered him on since
he began dorhinating
games -almost from the
minute he was old enough
to throw a ball.
The Colin Kaepernick
the public knows is cool
and collected, not the.
least bit'nervous about the
stage he will be on or the
job he has to do. Despite
the intense efforts of the
media to tease out more
sound bites during Super
Bowl week, he remains a
man of very few words.
"What you're seeing is
the way he's always been.
He's. not one to talk a lot
about himself," his dad
said. "He doesn't care who
gets the headlines or the
credit and I think you
see that in your inter-
views. He's just nt full of
himself."
That was evident Thurs-


day during Colin Kaeper-
nick's last media appear-
ance before the big game.
- He dutifully answered
questions without elabo-
rating, never veering off
task before it was finally
over and he could return
to practice.
"It's not that I'm not

AP Sports Columnist

comfortable with it," he
said. "To me, I'm here to
play football. That's what I
want to do." -
That's the quality former
Nevada coach Chris
Ault saw when his start-
ing quarterback went
down and he turned to
the redshirt freshman.
Kaepernick threw for five
touchdowns. It's what
Jim Harbaugh saw when
the backup electrified a
national audience with a
Monday Night Football
rout of the Chicago Bears
in November. Starter Alex
Smith was on the bench
the rest of the season.
It's the same quality his
parents have sedn almost
from the time he first
began to talk in complete
sentences.
"I'm a parent, but I
would say if you sat in
the stands and watched
him as a kid you could see
he had something," Rick
Kaepernick said. "He has
that 'it' factor, whatever
that 'it' is. In basketball,
when it came time to take
a 3-pointer to tie or win he
wanted the ball. He was
never the nervous Nellie,
it was like 'Give me the
ball.' You could see that at
a young age."
That the Kaepernicks are
proud parents goes with-
out saying. Every parent
who has taken their child
to Little League or Pop
Warner entertains dreams
of someday watching
'them playing a World Se-

ries or Super Bowl.
They're just as proud,
though, of how he honors
his brothers who never
made it. Colin quietly,
donated part of his first
game check to Camp
Taylor,'a California charity
his parents are involved
in for children with heart
defects, andlast Jujy he
visited the camp with
them.
He showed off his many
tattoos while swimming
with the kids, letting them
climb on his back as he
paddled about. He sat on
the floor with them and
listened as they told him
about their different heart
conditions, joined them in
crafts and ate dinner with
them.
When it was time to go,
the kids hid his car keys,
knowing that if you lose
something at Camp Taylor
you have to sing to get it
back.
.And so, the quarterback
,towered over them and
was joined by his parents
for a chorus of "This Little
Light of Mine," a song he
learned in Sunday school.
"He just loves kids, and
he ended up spending
six or seven hours there,"
his father said, "It's such a
great thing for kids and we
want that to be successful.
We know how hard it is for
parents. So we're pleased
he is doing that"

different level.
And while they savor
this moment, they'll also

Braves' Laird preps for starting role


The Associated Press

ATLANTA-Gerald Laird
is not letting anything ini
terfere with his time get-
ting to know the Braves'
pitchers.
Laird said he turned
down an invitation to rep-
resent Mexico in the World
Baseball Classic because he
Needs to work with Atlan-
ta's pitchers the full spring
training. He even reported
for informal workouts with
the pitchers this week at
Turner Field.
SLaird, whose mother is
half-Mexican, signed a
two-year, $3 million deal
with Atlanta in Novem-
ber to be Brian McCann's
backup. Laird is expected
to open the season as the
starter while McCann re-
covers from surgery to re-
pair a torn labrum in his
right shoulder.
The Braves expect Mc-
Cann to miss the first two
Weeks of the season. Laird
started 51 games for De-
troit last year.
wants to make sure he's
prepared for any length of
time he's asked to be the
starter.
"I feel like I can bring a
lot when the starter goes
down," Laird said ear-
lier this week during his
first day at Turner Field.
"I feel like I can fill in for
a couple weeks, a month,
whatever it takes. I knew


ITHEASgCI,:lTEIAiP[) i ,
The additions of B.J. and Justin Upton have commanded the Braves' offseason headlines, but
Laird could be just as important to Atlanta in the season's opening weeks. Laird, who played
with Detroit last season, likely will open the season at catcher while Brian McCann recovers
from shoulder surgery.


the situation. When (Mc-
-Cann) comes back he's go-
ing to definitely help the
ballclub. I can do whatever
is needed to do. I can play
every day, once a week or
whenever they tell me to
play."
Laird. said the spring
training games will be cru-
cial to the process of learn-
ing how to work with the
Braves' pitchers.
. "It takes a little bit. Catch-


ing in the bullpen only
helps so much," he said.
"That's why when they
asked me to'play a little
with Mexico in the World
Baseball Classic, I decided
not to do it. If I was an out-
fielder, I might have done
it.
"Being a catcher with a
'new ballclub and getting
to know the staff, I felt
that was my priority. I felt
coming in and out and not


being here the whole time
wouldn't have benefitted
the staff. I want to stay and
catch as many guys as I
can because if I'm the guy
for the first couple weeks
or however long, I want
to make sure I know what
their tendencies are and
what they like to do in cer-
tain situations."
Braves general manager
Frank Wren said team doc-,
tors likely will hold Mc-


Cann out of action at the
start of the season even if
the six-time All-Star is hit-
ting and throwing well in
spring training.
"If everything goes well
in spring training, I don't
think it will be more than
a 'couple weeks before he
is ready to.rejoin us," Wren
said. "I know that's prob-
ably two weeks too long
for him, but we don't want
to put him in a situation
where he has any major
setbacks."
The Braves signed Laird
after David Ross, who
backed up McCann the
past four seasons, signed
with Boston.
McCann and Ross were a
tandem at the position for
four years.
"David Ross is a guy I've
learned a lot from," Mc-
Cann said. "We had an un-
believable duo going there
for a while. It's going to be
sad seeing him gone. We
brought in Gerald Laird
who is a veteran guy with
a great track record and
we're excited."
Laird, 33, made his major
league debut with Texas in
2003 and spent six:sea-
sons with the Rangers. He
has appeared in as many
as 100 games only twice
- with Texas in 2007 and.
with Detroit in 2009.
After playing on the Car-
dinals 2011 World Series
championship team, Laird


returned to the Tigers last
season and made his sec-
ond straight World Series
appearance. He hit .282
with two homers and 11
RBIs.
Laird could be a key off-
season addition for the
Braves, but his signing
was overshadowed by two
other moves. The Braves
signed outfielder B.J. Up-
ton before last week's trade
forJustin Upton.
Suddenly, Laird likes his
chances to make a third
straight World Series, ap-
pearance. The Braves won
94 games last season be-
fore losing to St. Louis in
the wild-card game.
"When I signed I was ex-
cited that we've got a really
good club here," Laird said.
"They got beat last year in
that play-in game but they
were there. They're always
a good club, they're always
competing. The next thing
you know we got B.J. and
Justin. I'm really looking
forward to it. We've got a
chance to do something
really special.
"I've been fortunate the
last couple of years to play
with some good clubs and
play in the World Series.
With what Frank has done
here with the roster, I've
got a good chance to win
again. I'm just going to.
have fun and do my part
and maybe it will work
out."


National Ibotball League


Taylor ready if Flacco goes down I


The Associated Press

NEW ORLEANS -- T-
rod Taylor is the forgotten
quarterback at the Super
Bowl,
Everyone knows the
starters, of course, Bal-
timore's Joe Flacco and
San Francisco's Colin
Kaepernick.
They even know about
Alex Smith, who started
for the 49ers until lie was
sidelined with a concus-
sion in November and
Kaepernick stepped in.
And Taylor? His resume
can be summed up on the
top half of an index card:
Two years, no starts and
30 passes 25 of them
in the Ravens' meaning-
less regular-season finale
against Cincinnati last
month.
That's because Flacco
has started every game


during the past five sea-
sons and never has missed
a down because of injury
or ineffectiveness.
Still, Taylor knows he's
only one play away from
getting into the Super
Bowl, and for that reason
he's practicing hard this
week as Sunday's champi-
onship game draws near.
"There are so many situ-
ations throughout the
league where the next guy
is called in, so you can't
look at how many straight
games Joe has played
without being injured,"
Taylor said. "You never
know what can happen at
any second of the game.
I have to be ready to take
over if that happens."
The 49ers are prepar-
ing for that situation, too.
While Flacco is a tradi-
tional pocket passer, Tay-
lor is just as likely to scoot


downfield as throw the
ball. He ran for 65 yards
in that game against the
Bengals, and at Virginia
Tech he set a School re-
cord for rushing yards by
a quarterback (2,196).
"Actually, we're working
on (stopping). the pistol
and option in case he gets
in and in case they have
him in certain packages,"
San Francisco defensive
tackle Justin Smith said.
"We worked on what we
do and how to stop him. I
think we'll be prepared for
him if he gets in."
Taylor smiled when told
that San Francisco was
taking his skill set into
account.
"It definitely adds a little
extra to the game," he said.
"For them to be prepared
shows me it's definitely
something they have in
the back of their minds. I


played against (San Fran-
cisco) coach (Jim) Har-
baugh my last game at
Virginia Tech, so he knows
what I'm capable of doing.
My job this week is to pre-
pare the defense and also
to prepare myself so if I
have to go into the game,
I'm ready."
That, essentially, is the
job description of a back-
up quarterback- wheth-
er he was once a starter or
has never been anything
but a second-stringer.
"I don't know which sit-
uation is better or worse,"
Alex Smith said. "We're
just at different points in
a career. What's this, his
second year? He's been on
a good team, obviously.
He's there for a reason.
Your job as a backup is
to be ready to go. That's
no different for him or I.
That's our job."

Packers' Driver retires


The Associated Press

NEW ORLEANS No
other uniform would fit
Donald Driver.
The Green Bay Packers
all-time' leading receiver
announced his retirement
Thursday morning, with a
public ceremony planned
for Feb. 6 at the Lambeau
Field Atrium.
"I've always said I never
want to wear another uni-
form. I've always said that
I owe it to the fans to retire
as a Packer," Driver said.
"I feel like I can still play.
but if I can't play for my
organization, then I can't
play for anyone else."
Driver finishes his 14-
year career as Green Bay's
all-time leader in yards
receiving (10,137 yards),
catches (743) and 1,000-
yard seasons (seven), and
is third behind Don Hut-
son and Sterling Sharpe
with 61 touchdown re-
ceptions. A four-time Pro
Bowler, he was Green Bay's
.MVP in 2002 and was part
of the team that won the
Super Bowl following the
2010 season.
Only Brett Favre played
more games in a Packers
uniform.
_ "All 14 years. Every day,"


Driver said in an interview
on ESPN's "Mike & Mike"
wien asked what his fa-
vorite memory is. "That's
a special place to walk out
.of, and that's something
I'll never forget."
Drafted by Green Bay in
the seventh round of the
1999 draft, Driver became
one of the most popular
and prolific Packers. He
had six straight 1,000-yard
seasons from 2004-09, av-
eraging 14 yards per catch
during the stretch. He
made at least one catch in
133 straight games from
2002 to 2010, another
franchise record:
He's one of only 18 wide
receivers in NFL his-
tory with 700-plus career
catches and 10,000 or
more receiving yards in
200 games.
"It. was a, pleasure to
share the field with you
for 4 years! Great play-
er, tremendous person.
(hash)retire80," offensive
guard T.J. Lang said on
Twitter.
Aaron Rodgers added,
"Thanks for the memories
quickie, you will be missed
(hash)Packer4Life."
Quickie is Driver's child-
hood nickname.
Green Bay fans have


a close bond with every
Packers player, but they
had a particular soft spot'
for Driver. They loved his
bright smile and infec-
tious laugh, and. were
moved by his story of
overcoming seemingly
insurmountable odds.
Growing up, Driver and
his family were so poor
that he, his mother and
siblings sometimes spent
the nights in a U-Haul. He
and his brother stole cars,
to get money, and Driver
sold drugs, too.
Packers fans embraced
him his jersey is a
popular sight at Lambeau
Field, right up there with
Rodgers' No. 12 and Clay
Matthews' No. 52 and
he happily returned the
love. He's been active in
the community through-
out his career and said
that won't change. His an-
nual community softball
game will be played June
16.
"That's my second
home," Driver said. "I'm
born and raised in Hous-
ton, Texas, but Wisconsin
is always going to be a
home for me, and I'll al-
ways be back.'
Though Driver had said
he hoped to play flntil he


was 40 he turns 38 on
Saturday his retirement
was hardly a surprise. He
had restructured the fi-
nal year of his contract
to come back this season,
but played only a bit role
in the offense with Greg
Jennings, lames Jones,
lordy Nelson and Randall
Cobb ahead of him on the
depth chart. Driver's eight
catches for 77 yards were
his lowest totals since his
rookie season, and he was
inactive for four games,
including the NFC wild-
card, his final game at
Lambeau Field.

Horoscope

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb.
19) Because you've been
in the thoughts of some-
one dear to you there's an
excellent possibility that
you'll get a call from him
or her.
PISCES (Feb. 20-March
20) It's imperative that
you keep quiet about what
you've been told in strict
confidence.
ARIES (March 21-April
19) -The enthusiasm and
optimism you show will
have a contagious effect on
your associates, which will
help you in return.
TAURUS (April 20-May
20) One of the reasons
you're likely to do better
than most of your peers is
that you'll be cognizant of
the small details that oth-
ers totally ignore.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20)
-What makes life more
comfortable and enjoyable
during this cycle is associ-
ating with people whose
political and religious

CANCER (June 21-July 22)
-With your natural ability
to ferret out information
that others are' reluctant
to reveal, you'll need to be
especially mindful to keep
things to yourself.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)
-Because partnerships
are favored, you could find
yourself involved in several
such arrangements for dif-
ferent purposes.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept 22)
- Follow the sage advice:'
"A penny saved is a penny
earned." Cut covers wher-

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23)
- Little things could take
on special significance,

details.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov.
22) Both your intuition
and logic will be especially
keen at this point.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan.

Annie's Mailbox


Dear Annie: Two years ago, my son's fi-
ancee recommended we rotate who hosts
Christmas dinner. That year, she and my
son went to her mom's house, and last
year theywere supposed to come to mine.
Instead, they went to her mom's again and
were upset that I didn't want to tag along.
Annie, at the time, my 73-year-old mother
was in a rehab facility. There was no way
I could bring her along for dinner, and I
refused to leave her alone for the holiday.
A week before Christmas, my future
daughter-in-law sent me a text asking
me to reconsider. I again said no. She ac-
cidentally texted me instead of my son
Sand said, "Your mom is a nastyliar." I was
dumbfounded. I immediately got another
text saying, "I'm sorry, but my feelings are
hurt." I forwarded both of these to my
son, who said he was at work and didn't
have time to deal with this.
Right after the holiday, my mother fell
and broke her hip. She ended up need-
ing two surgeries. She refused additional
treatment, saying she'd had enough. She
went into hospice care and died a few


Bridge
In today's deal, look at the North and East
hands. South is in four hearts. West leads the
club nine: three, ace, jack. How should East plan
the defense?
North's two-diamond response was a trans-
fer bid, showing five or more hearts. South's
jump to three hearts, a superaccept, promised
a maximum with four hearts and a doubleton
somewhere.
Bridge is full of little ditties that were designed
to help the less capable players. Here, many Easts
will think of "return partner's lead."
,Yesterday we learned that playing a club back
at trick two is not necessarily fatal. A crafty South
will win that trick and cash his third club, discard-
ing a spade from the dummy before taking the
heart finesse. But the defense can still triumph.
However, at trick one, East should analyze his
partner's lead. It must be top of nothing. So why
continue clubs? It cannot help. Instead, East
should shift to a spade or diamond, and given
the dummy, a spade seems the natural choice.
South does best to win with his ace and cash
his two clubs, discarding a spade from the dum-
my. But East should note his partner's discourag-
ing spade two. Then, when in with the heart king,
East should cash the diamond ace and (seeing
West's encouraging nine) continue with another
diamond to defeat the contract.


days later.
My son became angry with me, saying I
deliberately shortened Mom's life by put-
ting her into hospice. My son's fiancee still
has not apologized for what she texted. I
haven't heard from either of them since.
I am hurt and upset. I not only lost my
mother, but it seems I've lost my son, as
well. How do I handle this mess? My hus-
band and I are both losing sleep.
S-HURT
Dear Hurt: Our condolences on the loss
of your mother. Your son may be feel-
ing guilty for pressuring you to abandon
Grandma for his fiancee's Christmas din-
ner, not realizing how short her time was.
It is not uncommon to deflect that by
blaming someone else. And his fiancee
maybe encouraging his anger toward you
because it gets her off the hook entirely.
' Please forgive them so you can work on
your grieving process without this addi-
tional sadness. Keep the lines of commu-
nication open, and try to maintain a cer-
tain superficiality. We hope this will allow
the relationship to move forward.

blessing because that is my brother's team.
And, also, personally, I playedfor the

two brothers playing in the Super Bowl and
what that takes away from theplayers."

"Anybody that isoutthereon thefootball
filed, you want o see them get results. With
Cohin, his first couple ofstarts, you did not
know what to expect because we had not
seen him out there as a starting QB. He did
amadngal season, as wel as the playoffs.
I thinkitwas one ofthose things where
wejustwanted toseehow hewasgoingto
handle the situation. He has done that."
