Siblilngsjailed after domestic incident


From staff reports

A brother and sister who
live together in Marianna
are now locked up in the
same jail as the result of a
domestic disturbance that
turned physical.
According to the com-
plaint filed against Telesfro
Victbriono and his sister,
Alejandro Victoriono, the


two are charged with bat-
tery (domestic violence)
and false imprisonment.


Alejandro is also on a hold
for, immigration officials,
according to the Jackson
County jail docket.
An officer with the
Marianna Police Depart-
ment was dispatched to
the Victoriono dwelling
at 4346 Deering St. just
before 2:30 a.m. Mon-
day. When the officer ar-
rived he took a statement


from the alleged victim
in the case, Telesfro's
wife, who also lives at the
address.
She told the officer that
she and Telesfro were ar-
guing and their dispute
turned physical. She said
he grabbed her by her
right arm and pulled her
close. As she resisted,
she told police, Telesfro


grabbed her by the back
of the head and forced her
to the ground. He took her
cellphone, she said, and
would not allow her to
immediately call for help.
Telesfro's sister allegedly
joined in the altercation
at that point, helping her
brother hold the victim

Sorenson

recognized for

rescue efforts

BY DEBORAH BUCKHALTER
dbuckhalter@jcfloridan.com
Edd Sorenson of Marianna
is knowri world-wide for his
overall diving prowess and his
specific skills in cave diving.
Last Saturday, he was honored


for it.
The Aquatic Science Asso-
ciation presented him with the
organization's first-ever out-
standing achievement award,
and in doing so also estab-
lished it as an ongoing award
in his name. The inaugural
Edd Sorenson Outstanding
Achievement Award contains
a hologram of Sorenson's im-
age, and a message on the see-
through trophy notes that the
award was given in recogni-
tion of Sorenson's life-saving


activities in 2012.
Until Soreson's feats of brav-
ery that year, there were only
four successful cave rescues
on record in the world. By the
time 2012 ended, Sorenson
had added four more to the to-
tal for eight in the world.'
A search in a cave for a miss-
ing diver usually results in the
recovery of a body, rather than
the rescue of the distressed.
But Sorenson saved two men

Local


theft


suspect


captured

From staff reports

Authorities in Holmes
County have revealed their
primary suspect in a Jan. 7
armed robbery is the same
prison escapee who was
captured
two days lat-
er in south
Florida after
an hours-
long stand-
off with a
Wood SWAT-style
team in Bre-
vard County downstate.
Kenneth Edward Wood,
40, will be returned to Del-
aware to face charges there.
He walked away from a
corrections facility in that
state in late December.
Wood is a suspect in an
armed robbery that took
place at the Express Lane in
the Holmes County com-
munity of Esto. Authorities
say the clerk was robbed
by a man who produced a
handgun and demanded
money.
Holmes County deputies
learned that the gold-col-
ored GMC truck the thief
used as his getaway ve-
hicle in that incident had
been reported stolen from
Covington County, Ala.
They also learned a store
in Geneva, Ala., had been
robbed recently by a sus-
pect meeting the same de-
scription of the man in the
Esto robbery.
A day after the Holmes
.County robbery, Taylor
County deputies respond-
ed to a similar robbery
in their jurisdiction and
chased the suspect vehicle,
also a GMC truck. The driv-
er eventually got out of the
vehicle and ran. Deputies
were unable to catch him,
but came to believe Wood
was their suspect. Authori-
ties in Holmes County have
learned that Wood was an
escapeefrom Delaware and
was wanted in reference to
a sexual assault case. Tay-
lor County officials were
able to find documents

4-H member Cassie Brown participated in the 2012 Jackson County 4-H Science Fair. Cassie's project, "Tough on
Germs' focused on microbiology and the effectiveness of different hand sanitizers.


4-H teaches youth to be scientists


Special to the Floridan

Plans are under way for the sec-
ond annual Jackson County 4-H
Science Fair. The 4-H Science Fair
will be held March 5, at 5 p.m. at
the Jackson County Extension
Service. This will be a fun and ex-
citing event that will allow youth
to explore their ideas and gain
valuable scientific skills.
Scientists study the natural
world and propose explanations
for what they observe. Through
a process called "scientific in-
quiry" scientists try to find sup-
port for their explanations. Sci-
entific inquiry is a multipart
activity that involves: making
observations and posing ques-
tions; examining books and other
sources of information to see
what is already known; planning
investigations and using tools
to gather, analyze, and interpret
data; coming up with answers,
explanations, and predictions;
and communicating the results.
By participating in the Jackson
County 4-H Science Fair, youth
will become scientists by using


methods of scientific inquiry to
learn about a topic in the natural
sciences.
Jackson County 4-H members
will have the opportunity to par-
ticipate in one of the following
categories: Investigative Science;
Science Research; Science Dem-
onstrations or Models; Informa-
tive Science Collections; or In-
formative Speech on a Science
Topic.
The 4-H Science Fair rules and
entry forms are available online
at http://jackson.ifas.ufl.edu/4-
h/. Inside the rulebook, youth
will find: entry deadlines, exhi-
bition and competition times,
project guidelines and award in-
formation. Entry forms are due
to the Extension Service on Feb.
15. Youth must be enrolled in
the Jackson County 4-H Program
before. Jan. 31, to be eligible to
participate.
The goals for the 4-H Science
Fair are to give youth a creative
outlet to make their own learning
experiences and investigate their
' questions and ideas; generate ex-
citement and interest in science


among youth; help youth learn to
communicate ideas and knowl-
edge gained, both verbally-and
artistically; and provide youth
with a positive experience and
an opportunity to feel a sense of
accomplishment.
For more information about the
Jackson County 4-H Science Fair,

at 482-9620. 4-H is the youth de-
velopment program of the Flori-
da Cooperative Extension Service
and the University of Florida's
Institute of Food and Agricultural
Sciences. The focus of 4-H is to
provide young people with op-
portunities to develop life skills
through participation in com-
munity clubs, project clubs, day
camps, residential camps, school
enrichment programs, and com-
petitive events. 4-H is open to all
youth between the ages of 5-18
regardless of gender, race, creed,
color, religion, or disability. Per-
sons with disabilities should no-

Missed


opportunity


A anyone who expected President Barack Obama to
use his second inaugural address to reach across
e aisle, to mend some fences, to create an
atmosphere of cooperation in Washington was surely
disappointed on Monday.
And that is too bad, because it was a missed opportu-
nity to focus on one of our nation's great crises our
ineffective, if not broken federal government.
Instead, Obama's speech hailed the progressive ideals
upon which he has built his political success and ad-
ministration, tying those principles to what he said was
the founding fathers' vision of our country.
He called on the nation to address climate change.
"The failure to do so would betray our children and
future generations."
On a day that the country observed Martin Luther
King Jr.'s birth, Obama drew on words from King and
Abraham Lincoln and declared he would press to
broaden the economic fortunes of all Americans." ...
(O)ur country cannot succeed when a shrinking few
and a growing many barely make it. We believe that
America's prosperity must rest on the broad shoulders
of a rising middle class."
He alluded to coming political battles, including
that of gun control, and repeated his allegiance to
the nation's great social programs Social Security,
Medicare and Medicaid. The people, he said, "reject the
belief that America must choose between caring for the
generation that built this couritry and investing in the
generation that will build its future."
Equality was also a central theme, with the president
referencing the Declaration of Independence and its
self-evident truths of "life, liberty and the pursuit of
happiness" with a call for equal pay for equal work,
equal rights for gay Americans, safer streets and a fair
and sensible immigration policy.
It was not a speech that will be remembered for any
one great line, like John E Kennedy's "ask not what your
country can do for you, ask what you can do for your
country." It was an unabashed outline of his progressive
vision for this country, with references time and again
to our nation's roots. Five times he invoked God's name,
five times he uttered the phrase "we the people," and
seven times he used the word "freedom."
What we did not hear and would have liked to, how-
ever, are words like compromise, and sacrifice, and
working together forthe good of the country.
We the people hunger for it.
A poll commissioned by Fox News last month found
that 65 percent of Americans believe our government is
"broken," and of the remaining 35 percent, 26 percent
of those say its performance is "just fair."
President Obama has four years left to work sn the
nation's problems, and they are many and monumen-
tal. The people are all too familiar with them. To achieve
a semblance of success will require negotiation and
compromise, bold thinking and statesmanship. The
themes Obama outlined Monday were fine and good,
but if we are to move forward as a nation, it will re-
quire fixing our broken government. Nobody is better
positioned or equipped to do that than the president.
Monday's inaugural stage was an opportunity to make
that a priority of Obama's second term. In the end, how-
ever, it turned out to be a missed opportunity

Sniffing out the truth in our own 'Kennelgate'


BY BILL COTTERELL
S Florida Voices

taff turnover is :normal in the
first half of a governor's term,
and Rick Scott has had his
share of it. Three chiefs of staff,
new education and prisons bosses,
executive turmoil at the Health De-
partment, a pair of economic-de-
velopment guys, a couple prisons
directors and a management-ser-
vices secretary have all left, along
with assorted political hirelings.
But now he's done what no other
governor has dared. Last week, the
Tampa Bay Times revealed that
Scott fired his dog.
The tale of Reagan, the Labra-
dor Retriever rescue pup adopted
during the 2010 campaign, made
it to CNN, Politico, the Huffington
SPost and other national media. The
implication was that Scott cyni-
cally exploited the pooch to soften
his image and cast him aside like
a Charlie Crist holdover once he'd
won.
There's a lot less to this story than
meets the eye. It says a lot about
the sometimes ham-fisted way
governors all of them manage
information.
After some circling and sniffing,
the governor's office explained that
Reagan did politically incorrect
things at the governor's mansion,
like snarling, barking and menac-
ing people. Hostility admired in,
say, a budget director are intoler-
able in a mansion mutt, so back to
the kennel went Reagan.
The Scott family now has another
dog, Tallee, with more Lab-like
manners.
After the PR damage was done,
the Scott press staff said that
Reagan was later re-rescued, now
lives on a horse ranch and is named
Pluto. With his assumed identity,
Pluto can perhaps switch parties
and work in the Crist gubernatorial


campaign of 2014 while denying, citizen can have.

The sex trade: Here's a better way to confront it


BY STEVEN KURLANDER
Florida Voices

N o matter what, when it
comes to addressing the
world's oldest profes-
sion, there's always going to be a
demand for prostitutes willing to
sell their bodies for a fee. Like illicit
drug use, until it becomes legal,
prostitution will continue unabat-
ed, unregulated, uncontrolled and
untaxed.
Also, when it comes to the sex
trade, there always will be occa-
sional, much publicized sweeps
of prostitutes and johns in some
seedy section of a city. There always
will be some righteous state leg-
islators, too, introducing virtuous
bills targeting some aspect of this
socially unacceptable behavior.
Some examples: Last week,
Florida's Polk County Sheriff Grady
Judd, who has been described as
not "just a local enforcer of laws
but a more universal arbiter of
morals," announced that'a four-day
prostitution sting had netted 78
arrests that included porn stars.
He got bonus nationwide expo-
sure for the effort. Judd said, "We
seemed to have'every thug and
reprobate in central Florida under
arrest... Let the word go forward,
this is not our last operation, be-
cause we like it."
Like it? You can bet Judd loves it.
Those morality raids are time test-
ed, very effective political "tricks"
for politicians, particularly sheriffs
and prosecutors, to remind the
public how well they are protect-
ing the community from morally
depravity.
And in this virtuous state of
Florida, the latest moral flavor of
the month is a new campaign in the
Florida legislature tO crack down
on the massage parlor industry


now flourishing. Many of Florida's
massage parlors are alleged to
operate as fronts for prostitution on
a 24-hour basis. A measure is mak-
ing its way through committee to
make it a first degree misdemeanor
for massage parlors to operate
between 10 p.m. and 6 a.m., and
not to allow anyone to live in these
establishments. 4
This bill, which has received
unusual bipartisan support in both
houses of the Florida Legislature,
not only addresses illegal prostitu-
tion in these massage parlors but
the issue of sex trafficking, where
virtual sex slaves, many of them
children, are alleged to work long
hours treating clients while being
held captive on the premises.
Introducing such a bill may
seem altruistic But human traffick-
ing is a serious problem that, unlike
prostitution per se, deserves much
more sophisticated action than
the ineffective political gimmickry
used to address pimps and street
walkers. Prostitution is only part
of the human trafficking problem,
and solely dwelling on it to address
slavery ignores legal distinctions
between human trafficking and
prostitution.
While prostitution is a moral
crime that will always continue in
one form or another and should
be legalized, sanitized, taxed and
controlled, human slavery violates
basic constitutional and human
rights precepts and can't be toler-
ated at all. It's much more than
arresting johns and sanctioning
massage parlors.
Human trafficking in the U.S. is
exploding, and Florida, along with
Texas and California, are hotbeds
for human slavery.
Many of the slaves are children.
According to the Florida Depart-
ments of Children and Families,


there were 427 reported cases of
child trafficking in 2011, up from 43
cases of child trafficking in 2009.
In a recent article in the NewYork
Times headlined, "A Misguided
Moral Crusade" by NoyThrupkaew,
a contributing editor at liberal pub-
lication The American Prospect,
Thrupkaew correctly argued that
to tackle human trafficking, instead
of law enforcement employing
"end demand" campaigns that
. result in the arrests of prostitutes
and johns, there needs to be a
major commitment "to seriously
investigate and prosecute traffick-
ers and impose harsh punishment
on those who rape and assault sex
workers."
So leaning on massage parlors is
neither the answer nor a good start
to free Florida's slaves.
Florida legislators in 2008
targeted a mushrooming gang
problem by implementing a suc-
cessful Florida Gang Reduction
Strategy initiative. Now, lawmakers,
along with Gov. Rick Scott and At-
torney General Pam Bondi, should
be devising similar long-term law
enforcement strategies specifically
targeting those who promote hu-
man trafficking and freeing human
slaves.
They should give the very moral
Sheriff Judd the same, honorable
mission that President Lincoln
had 150 years ago to free slaves in
his jurisdiction. Instead of arrest-
ing horny johns, he'd be part of
a statewide effort to enforce the
13tlh Amendment and jailing truly
criminal thugs and reprobates, but
minus the titillating headlines to
help him get reelected again.

Lawyers ready for
trial for Greer
ORLANDO Prosecu-
tors and defense attorneys,
said Tuesday they're ready
for next month's trial
of former Florida GOP .
leader Jim Greer, who is
charged with funneling
party money to his private
company.
"We're ready to go,"
Greer's defense attorney,
Damon Chase, told Circuit
Judge Marc Lubet.
Greer's trialintheft'and
other chares,'is set t start
Feb. 11, and it could be
held in the same court-
room as Casey Anthony's
murder trial, the judge
said. Anthony was acquit-
ted in 2011 of killing her 2-
year-old daughter, Caylee.
The Greer trial is ex-
pected toast two-weeks.
Some of the most promi-
nent Florida Republicans
are named aswitnesses..:
Greer is pleading not '
guilty to theft and other
charges, claiming the case
was politically motivated.
Lubet is now handling
family law cases but has
decided to remain the
judge in Greer's criminal
case. He asked attorneys,
to keep him informed, .
should they reach some
kind of deal. :
After the brief hear-
ing, Chase said that was
unlikely.

Fla. looks to Mass. for
health care advice
FORT LAUDERDALE
Two Massachusetts
experts are giving Florida
lawmakers starkly differ- ,
ent opinions about how
the health care law has
impacted that.state.
A Senate committee
tasked with implement-
ing the federal health
overhaul met in Tallahas-
see Tuesday to examine
Massachusetts' experience
with the law.
Massachusetts laid
the groundwork for the
federal health law with its
2006 health care initiative
and is currently the only
state with an individual
mandate.
One expert said the
number of uninsured
residents fell by twp-thirds
and premiums dropped.
But another urged law-
makers not to expand
Medicaid because,it de-
presses economic activity


and eliminates jobs.
Lawmakers must decide
whether to extend Med-
icaid coverage to roughly
900,000 residents and
whether to partner with
the federal government
on a state health exchange
or allows the feds to run it
alone.

Second death in

NAPLES Authorities

small child has died fol-
lowing a crash on Alligator
Alley in southwest Florida.
The Florida Highway Pa-
trol reports that 3-year-old
Rylee Douglas died just
before midnight Monday.
FHP says acar driven by
33-year-old Cecilia Renee
Douglas struck another
car Monday morning.
Douglas veered off the
road, went through a
fence and into a canal.
FHP says she was taken
to the hospital, where she
was pronounced dead.
Another child in the car,
4-year-old Madison Doug-
las, remained in critical
condition Tuesday.
Three passengers in
the second car also re-
ceived serious and minor
injuries.
The crash'remains under

Gov. to propose pay
raises for teachers
TALLAHASSEE- Flori-
da Gov. Rick Scott is asking
state lawmakers put aside
money in the coming year
to give pay raises to the
state's teachers.
A spokeswoman for the
governor said that Scott
will announce his propos-
al Wednesday in Orlando.
The governor's office is not
providing any additional
details yet.
Scott last year pushed
legislators to increase
overall funding going to
the state's public schools
but he didn't mandate
that the money go to
teacher salaries.
': In:the past GOP legisla-
tors have resisted calls to
raise teacher salaries by
saying it was the respon-
sibility of local school
boards to decide how
much to pay teachers.
The state has roughly
168,000 teachers.
SScott is putting the
finishing touches on
the 2013 budget he will
likely submit next week to
legislators.

Developer indicted
on law violations
PENSACOLA A Pan-
handle developer is being
charged with breaking
federal campaign finance
laws.'
Jay Odom, 56, surren-
dered to federal au-
thorities on Tuesday. He
is pleading not guilty to
charges that in 2007 he by-
passed contribution limits
for federal candidates.
Back in 2011, state pros-
ecutors dropped charges
against Odom and former

som. Sansom had been
accused of scheming to
get $6 million in the state
budget tobuild a hangar
at the Destin airport for
Odom, a local business-
man and major Republi-
can donor.
A federal indictment that
was unsealed alleges that
. Odom reimbursed people
who made contributions
of $2,300 to a presidential

Prosecutor: Foster girl killed by caretaker

The Associated Press


MIAMI The caretaker
of foster child Rilya Wilson
grew to hate the 4-year-
old because of defiant
behavior, finally smother-
ing the girl with a pillow in
2000 and covering up the
slaying with a web of lies,
a Florida prosecutor told a
jury Tuesday.
Assistant State Attorney
Joshua Weintraub said in
closing arguments that
the law permits the jury to
find 67-year-old Geralyn
Graham guilty of first-de-
gree murder even though
Rilya's body was never
found. Graham, who in-
sists she is innocent, faces
life in prison if convicted.
Evidence and testimony
during the eight-week
trial showed that Graham
abused Rilya; even confin-
ing the girl in a dog cage
or keeping her hidden in
a laundry room for hours,
Weintraub said. It was all.
because Rilya wouldn't
do exactly as Graham
ordered, the prosecutor
said.
"It happened because of
this woman's frustration
and hatred of Rilya," Wein-
traub said. "This woman
hated Rilya Wilson for a
variety of reasons."
Defense attorney Mi-
chael Matters, however,


"Lack ofphysical evidence. Lack of a body. Lack of any physical discovery
of remains. Lack ofa motive for killing her ... You should use your common
sense."
Michael Matters,
defense attorney


said there was little tes-
timony about hatred or
maliciousness toward
Rilya on the part of Gra-
ham. Jurors ought to fo-
cus on what evidence
the state did not have, he
said.
"Lack of physical evi-
dence. Lack of a body.
Lack of any physical dis-
covery of remains. Lack of
a motive for killing her,"
Matters said. "You should
use your common sense."
Matters added that in-
vestigators should have
focused on whether state
child welfare workers
might have sold Rilya to
a family, possibly in an-
other country, rather than
zeroing in on a possible
murder.
"There has not been any
reliable or credible proof
that Rilya is dead," Mat-
ters said.
Jurors are likely to begin
deliberations Wednesday,
after the defense finishes
its closing arguments and
prosecutors have a chance
at rebuttal argument.
Rilya's disappearance


went unnoticed by the
state Department of Chil-
dren and Families for
about 15 months, largely
because a caseworker
failed to check on the girl
in person. The shock-
ing. discovery that she
had disappeared led to a
shake-up at the agency,
including high-level res-
ignations, and passage of
reforms including better
tracking of foster children.
The state's case rests
heavily on the testimony
of three jailhouse infor-
mants who claim that
Graham implicated her-
self behind bars when
she was in jail on a fraud
charge.
The star witness, career
criminal Robin Lunceford,
said Graham told her she
smothered Rilya with a
pillow in December 2000
and disposed of the body
near water.
Lunceford said Graham
considered the child evil
and referred to the girl as
"it." One of the last straws
was Rilya's insistence on
wearing a Cleopatra mask


on Halloween rather than
an angel costume, Lunc-
eford testified.
The defense has raised
questions about Lunce-
ford's motivation, noting
that she got a life prison
sentence reduced to 10
years in exchange for her
testimony.
Weintraub told jurors
that Graham made up a
series of stories for friends
who noticed Rilya was no
longer at her home, in-
cluding a claim that an
unidentified DCF worker
had taken the girl for
mental tests and never re-
turned her.
At other times, she told
friends Rilya was on trips
to Disney World, NewYork
or New Jersey. She also
told people Rilya had se-
vere behavioral problems,
including spreading feces
around the house, trying
to hurt her younger sister
and touchingmen's private
parts.
Investigators had no
evidence to back up Gra-
ham's stories or the claims
of Rilya's bad behavior.


Diverse coalition pushes Va. regulation of drones


The Associated Press

RICHMOND, Va. A
diverse coalition of orga-
nizations and lawmak-
ers said Tuesday that the
use of drones by police
and government agen-
cies must be regulated to
protect Virginians' privacy
rights.
"We are concerned
ab9ut the potential for
abuse," said Del. C. Todd
Gilbert, R-Shenandoah
and sponsor of legislation
to regulate use of small,
unmanned aerial vehicles
that can be equipped
with cameras to conduct
surveillance.
Gilbert, one of the most
conservative members
of the General Assembly,
worked with the American
Civil Liberties Union to
draft the legislation. Also
supporting the bill are the
Virginia Tea Party Federa-
tion and several agricul-
ture groups, which worry
about environmental
regulators surreptitiously


monitoring activity on
their property.
"We don't think audio or
video surveillance, should
happen on private land,"
said Trey Davis of the Vir-
ginia Farm Bureau.
Gilbert said no govern-
ment or police agencies in
Virginia are using drones
yet, but the day is com-
ing as the cost of the tech-
nology declines. He and
Claire Guthrie Gastanaga,
executive director of the
ACLU of Virginia, urged
the' General Assem-
bly to address the issue
proactively.
"The ACLU asks the
legislature to set a policy
for how much privacy
you're going to continue
to have as the technology
evolves," Gastanaga said
at a news conference with
Gilbert and supporters of
the bill.
Gilbert's proposal would'
require approval of the
General Assembly or a
local government body
before any agency could

warrant before deploying
drones and regulate the
dissemination of infor-
mation and retention of

aircraft.
The bill carves out ex-
emptions for emergen-
cies, like searching for a
missing person.
Sen. Donald A.
McEachin, D-Henrico, is
sponsoring similar legisla-
tion,, and Republican Del.
Ben Cline of Rockbridge
County has submitted a
bill imposing a one-year


moratorium on the de-
ployment of drones as an
alternative if the proposed
regulations do not pass.
The Virginia Association
of Chiefs of Police opposes
the bills, executive direc-
tor Dana Schrad said in an
interview.
"The concern we all have
is that we don't want to be
rushed into legislation we
may not be happy with
later legislation that
may not fully address the
best practices in law en-
forcement when it comes
to surveillance," Schrad
said.

last, February, a young
woman in April and a
man in October of the
same year. Doubling the
world-wide live rescue
count helped further seal
Sorenson's reputation as
the man to call on when a
difficult search is at hand.
He arrived in Jackson
County a few years ago
and established a dive
shop near Jackson Blue
Spring. His subsequent ef-
forts to promote diving in
local springs have put this
area on the map for the
diving community, and
local dignitaries have ac-
knowledged that his con-
tributions have positively
impacted the economy
here. Divers come from
all over the world, spend-
ing their money on hotel
stays, at restaurants and
local stores.
But on Saturday, his
life-saving efforts were in
focus. The father of the
woman he rescued sent
a letter which was read
aloud at the event. Jackson
County Sheriff Lou Roberts
spoke about Sorenson's
bravery. Roberts talked
about his admiration of
Sorenson, saying that he,
himself,.would "rather be
shot at" than dive down
through the dark recesses
of a cave.

was responsible for quickly getting Sorenson's extensive cave diving gear ready, sometimes
in a moving vehicle, so he could get into the water and make a rescue.


About 75 fellow divers
came from all corners of
the U.S. to pay Sorenson
homage Saturday, and
at least one travelled all

BP claims chief says $332M beingpaid


The Associated Press

TALLAHASSEE The admin-
istrator of a class-action settle-
ment between petroleum giant
BP and oil spill claimants said
Tuesday that more than 34,000
Florida businesses and individu-
als so far have been approved to
receive $332 million.
Patrick Juneau was in Tallahas-
see to meet with state officials
and spread the word about the
settlement. He appeared before a
Florida Senate committee Tues-
day and will visit with Gov. Rick


Scott and the Florida Cabinet
on Wednesday. Jdneau said $245
million so far has been paid to
the businesses and individuals
approved in Florida.
"There are a lot more, a lot
more eligible claims in your state,
which have not been filed," Ju-
neau told the Senate Agriculture
Committee. "I know that."
He said he couldn't estimate
how many, but his job is to edu-
cate people damaged by the
spill, including lost businesses
and wages, about the settle-
ment and help them qualify for


reimbursement. Tuesday was the
deadline for seafood businesses
and individuals to apply, but oth-
ers have until April 2014. Florida
accounts for about a fifth of the
$1.3 billion paid in the five Gulf
Coast states to date, Juneau said.
The agreement covers damages
caused by the blowout of BP's
Macondo well in the Gulf of Mex-
ico off Louisiana in 2010. It trig-
gered an explosion aboard the
Deepwater Horizon rig that killed
11 workers and spilled more than
200 million gallons,of oil out of
the well.

Texas parents get custody of kids living in bus


The Associated Press

CONROE, Texas Near-
ly a year after their two
children were found liv-
ing virtually unsupervised
in an old school bus in
Southeast Texas, the par-
ents regained full cus-
tody of their kids Tuesday
when a judge dismissed a
child welfare case against
them.
"It feels really good," said
Sherrie Shorten, of Splen-
dora, after she and her
husband, Mark, stood be-
fore Judge Jerry Winfree at
a hearing that lasted only
a few minutes. "This is just
one more thing we've got-

"If you love your family,
you never give up," Mark
Shorten said outside the
courtroom, standing close
to his two children, Jessica,
12, and Chance, 6. "You do

it was the proper thing to

LONDON Prince
Harry's admission that
he killed Taliban fighters
while working as'a helicop-
ter gunner in Afghanistan
drew intense British me-
dia coverage Tuesday and
sparked concerns about
possible reprisals.
The 28-year-old prince
spoke in apooled interview
published late Monday af-
ter he was safely out of Af-
ghanistan. He had spent
the last 20 weeks deployed
as a co-pilot and gunner in'
a heavily armed Apache at-
tack helicopter.
Asked if he had' killed
from the cockpit, the
third-in-line to the British
throne said: "Yeah, so, lots
of people have."
The response was imme-
diate Tuesday: The Daily
Mirror tabloid ran a page-
one headline "Royal Sen-
sation Hary: I Killed Tal-
iban" along with a photo of
a macho-looking Harry in
combat gear and designer
shades.
Other newspapers ran
similar gung-ho stories
about the prince's military
exploits. "Harry: I Have
Killed" was the story in the
Daily Mail.
Video shot during the
prince's deployment was
shown dozens of times
on Britain's major news
networks.

From wire reports


Lindsey German, leader
of the Stop the War Coali-

ments "arrogant and in-
sensitive" and raised the
prospect that Harry might
have accidently targeted
Afghan civilians.
Former officer Charles
Heyman, who edits a year-
book on British forces,
said the prince's words
may raise the already high
threat level against him. '
"The royal family are all
targets, and he now prob-
ably becomes the prime
target, royal family-wise,"
Heyman said. "But he can
live with that. He's a sol-
dier, he knows what he's
doing."
Heyman said it was com-
mendable that Harry had
undertaken such a dan-
gerous and demanding
military job.

Chipola Softball



Experienced Lady Indians face big expectations
BY DUSTIN KENT of experience before, as well as going percentage.

After winning the Panhandle
Conference title and making
a deep run at the FCSAA state
tournament last year, the Chipo-
la Lady Indians come into the
2013 season once again with
great expectations.
Chipola returns much of the
core from that team, including
ace pitcher Eva Voortman and
home run leader Mya Anderson,
and five others who played in at
least 40 games last season.
That makes the Lady Indians
one of the favorites not just in
the state but also in the nation,
though Chipola coach Belinda
Hendrix said that there are al-
ways potential pitfalls with a
team full of returning players.
"We were pretty successful last
season and we have a lot of re-
turners, but I don't want them to
think it's going to be easy, or that

might expect.
"We've been in this position
before and not gotten it done,"
Hendrix said. "We have to try to
keep our mindset that we have.
to work hard every day. Every
team in our conference is good
and they get better and better
every year, so you have to keep
working. I expect us to do well,
but I've been in this situation
before when we had a lot of re-
turners and didn't do as well, so
I'm working really hard to push
these sophomores to not expect
it to come easy."
The Lady Indians have plenty
of firepower coming back from a
team that powered its way to 466
runs en route to a 48-win season
in 2012, with Anderson return-
ing after leading the team with
15 home runs and a .820 slug-


KistLen Allen was second on
the team in batting at .414, while
Jasmine Tanksley also topped
.400 at the plate and stole 29
bases.
Hayley Parker batted .399 and
was tied for third on the team
with six home runs, with Stepha-
nie Garrels batting an even .400
with 29 stolen bases, and Chan-
dler Seay hitting .406 with 29 sto-
len bases as well.
The losses of leading hitter
Sayumi Akamine, leading base
stealer Ebony Wright, and RBI
leader Chelsey Steedley are
significant.

New-look Indians ready to take on new year, challenge


BY DUSTIN KENT
dkent@jcfloridan.com

The Chipola Indians will begin the 2013
season this weekend in St. Petersburg
with, for all intents and purposes, an en-
tirely different team than the one that fin-
ished the 2012 campaign.
The Indians won 39 games last season,
including 16 of 20 in the Panhandle Con-
ference to win the league title, before ul-
timately having the season end in disap-
pointing fashion with a pair of lopsided
state tournament losses to Palm Beach
State and Polk State just one win from the
final round.
From that team, only pitchers Alex Bi-
gale and Mikel Belcher, who combined


for just 19 1/3 innings in 2012, return this
year, with the remaining 25 players on the
2013 roster to see their first action with
the Indians this year.
"It's a brand new start for us," Chipola
coach Jeff Johnson said. "We've got a
bunch of freshmen and a few transfers, so
it will be a learning curve for us for sure.
We'll be a.work in progress, but I like our
team and I like our kids. We don't seem
to have a bunch of guys with big egos.
They're buying into playing as a team, but
we haven't lost a game yet, so we'll learn
a lot more about who we are when that
happens."
Chipola has 19 freshmen on the roster,
along with a handful of transfers in out-
fielders Chase Rivett (LSU) and Cameron


Gibson. (Georgia Tech), right-handed
pitcher Preston Johnson (Winthrop), left-
handed pitcher Jason Jabour (Tulane),
and first baseman/right-handed pitcher
Cole Evans (Kentucky).
Among the notable freshman is left-
handed pitcher and former Marianna
Bulldog Michael Mader, who will team
with Preston Johnson, and Venezuelan
right-hander Carlos Misell to form the
foundation of what the veteran Chipola
coach hopes is a quality starting rotation.
"We've got some quality arms, some
real good arms," he said. "I'm concerned
with our strike throwing ability and our
secondary stuff, as well as holding run-
ners and making sure big innings don't
happen. But I like our arm strength and


our pitchers. We've just got to create more
depth and pitch-ability.
"(Prestorn Johnson, Mader, and Misell)
are probably are top three arms right
now. (Preston Johnson) throws 88 to 92
(miles per hour) with two good breaking
balls. He's just got to develop a change.
Michael Mader had a heck of a fall for us.
He has good command of his fastball and
he's a lefty that sneaks up on you at 85 tc
88. He's just got to develop his second-
ary stuff better. Carlos Misell throws the
ball very hard from 90 to 95. He just has
,to develop his command and secondary
pitches well."

Tigers fall in heartbreaker to Cairo (Ga.)

The Graceville Tigers took a
42-40 loss to the Cairo (Ga.) Syr-
upmakers on Monday afternoon
at the MLK Shootout at Rickards
High School.
Junior guard Stacy Masten
scored 27 of the Sypupmakers' 42
points, while Marquis White led
Graceville with 15 points, with
Devonte Merritt adding nine.
SThe Tigers, who were without
two starters in Jared Padgett
and Rashard McKinnie, both of
whom were out sick, fell behind
28-14 at halftime before storm-
T ing back in the second half.
Graceville had a chance to
tie or take the lead down two

"We didn't show up," Tigers
coach Matt Anderson said, not-


ing his frustration with the game
starting an hour after it was
scheduled. "I let my aggravation
with that and some other things
lead me to not do a very good
job, and that compounded with
us not playing very well."
The Tigers were scheduled to
play a big district home game
against the Sneads Pirates on
Tuesday night, and Anderson
said in retrospect it was a mis-
take to schedule a road game
against a quality opponent the
day before.
"Playing a Monday game on a
holiday before a battle for No. 1
in the district was probably not
a real good idea on my part," he
said. "It was a good event, and
we might go again next year, but

Djokovic getting the hang

of winning in Australia


The Associated Press

MELBOURNE, Australia -
Novak Djokovic is really starting
to get the hang of how to handle
himself at the Australian Open.
An expression often used
Down Under "Keep your shirt
on" is designed to discourage
anyone from becoming unnec-
essarily overexcited.
Djokovic took it literally after
his 6-1, 4-6, 6-1, 6-4 win lTes-
day night over fifth-seeded Tb-
mas Berdych, advancing to the
semifinals at an 11th consecu-
tive Grand Slam tournament.
The 2-hour, 31-minute victory
took exactly half the time of his
five-set, fourth-round win two
nights previously against Stanis-


las Wawrinka. In the early hours
of Monday morning, Djokovic
ripped his sweat-drenched
shirt off and flexed his muscles,
mimicking his victory celebra-
tion after the 5:53 victory over
Rafael Nadal in the 2012 Austra-
lian Open final.
That was acceptable at the
time to the Rod Laver Arena
crowd, which was still abuzz at
1:40 a.m. following five sets of
high-level tennis.

NF lifts suspension of Saints coach Sean Payton


The Associated Press

NEW YORK Sean Pay-
ton is back as coach of the
New Orleans Saints.
Payton's season-long
suspension for his role
in the Saints' bounty
program was -lifted -by
NFL Commissioner Roger
Goodell on Tuesday, nearly
two weeks earlier than
expected.
The decision allows Pay-
ton to attend the Senior
Bowl in Mobile, Ala., on
Saturday, where some of
the top college players
available for the NFL draft
will be competing.
Payton, along with as-
sistant head coach Joe Vitt,
'general manager Mickey
Loomis, and four players
including Jonathan Vilma,
was suspended after an
investigation found the
club had a performance
pool offering cash rewards
for key plays, including
big hits. The player sus-.
pensions eventually were
overturned.
"I clearly recognize that
mistakes were made,
which led to league vio-
lations," Payton said in a
statement. "Furthermore,
I have assured the com-
missioner a more diligent
protocol will be followed."
The suspension was*
scheduled to end after the
Super Bowl on Feb. 3, but
was moved up after Pay-
ton and Goodell met on
Monday.
"Coach Payton acknowl-
edged in the meeting his
responsibility for the ac-
tions of his coaching staff
and players and pledged

coaching staff following
the departure last week of
offensive line coach and
running game coordina-
tor Aaron Kromer, now the
offensive coordinator in
Chicago.
Loomis and Vitt are in
Mobile evaluating players.
Loomis said he was caught
off guard by the news of
Payton's return. But he
said having Payton back
sooner than expected will
help the Saints.
"Every day makes a dif-
ference. We've certainly
missed Sean in terms of
the football team and all
the things that go with our
business and the game. But
look, I miss his friendship.
We all miss his friendship.


We miss him as a person.
I'm excited that he's going
to be back here and fired
up that he's back."
Vitt said he talked to Pay-
ton Tuesday morning and
that he should join the
Saints' contingent in Ala-
bama on Wednesday.
"We just found out on
the way to practice,". Vift
said. "Mr. B called Mickey
and we're all excited. Sean
went and spent the day in
New York (Monday). He
just got back in Dallas. I
talked to him on the phone
about 5 o'clock'this morn-
ing. He's packing his bags
so we'll expect he'll be here
some time" Wednesday.
Vitt agreed with Loomis
that.the timing of Payton's
return is good for the
team.
Payton is "going to hit the
ground running with both
feet. His jaw is going to be
set. He'll have a note pad
full of thoughts and ideas
and he's going to have to
get himself caught up with
the evaluation process of
our team and looking at
film, which he'll do. This is
perfect, getting him back
now, because he's going to
be here for the readings of
our players. He's going to
be here for the readings
of these college seniors.

restricted free agent tape

between matches on the
advice of local hero Lley-
ton Hewitt.
"It was a great perfor-
mance. I was hoping to
have a shorter match
... just not to go over 5
hours," Djokovic said, in
a comparatively subdued
mood after a consider-
ably more routine victory.
"It's always going to be
tough against Tomas; he's
an established player. He
has a big game, big serve.
He can /compete against
anyone on any surface."
In the semifinals,
Djokovic will meet No. 4-
seeded David Ferrer.
Ferrer survived a quar-
terfinal battle with fel-
low Spaniard Nicolas Al-
magro. Almagro had three
chances to serve for the
match, but Ferrer broke
each time.
A usually mild-man-
nered pro, Ferrer showed
his aggression at times
when he threatened to
spike his racket and even
smashed his water bottle
in the changeover after
he'd dropped serve in a
frustrating fourth set that
featured eight breaks of
serve.
He'd never lost to Al-
magro in 12 previous
meetings and, as the No.
1 Spaniard in the draw in
the absence of 11-time
major winner Rafael Nad-
al, felt a responsibility to
reach the semis.
"It was (a) miracle I won
this match," Ferrer said of
his comeback 4-6, 4-6, 7-
5, 7-6 (4); 6-2 win. "I tried
to fight every point; that's
my game. I always fight."
Ferrer survived once in
the third set and twice in
the fourth when Almagro
was serving for the match,
but held his nerve and
finally advanced to his
third semifinal in the last
four Grand Slam events.
"In the important mo-
ments, I played more
consistent in my game,"
Ferrer said: "Of course, in
the next round, the semi-
finals, I need to play my

Saturday instead of
Monday.
"But no matter the
situation,, we had to
come out and play hard
and execute, and we did


best tennis, better than
today."
Djokovic acknowledged
Ferrer's work ethic, saying
the 30-year-old Spaniard
was "one of the most re-
spected guys on the tour
because he never gives
up."
"He plays every single
match of his career with
100 percent," Djokovic
said.
"I'm expecting a long
one," he added.
SFerrer has never been
past a major semifinal.
There are only three
men left in the draw who
have won Grand Slam
titles Djokovic has won
five, including the last
two in Australia. He's aim-
ing to be the first man in
the Open era to win three
consecutive Australian
titles.
The other two are in
action Wednesday, with
17-time Grand Slam win-
ner Roger Federer against
2008 Australian finalist Jo-
Wilfried Tsonga of France.
Andy Murray, who broke
the 76-year drought for
British men at the major
tournaments by winning
the U.S. Open last year,
will play Jeremy Chardy
of France.
On the women's side,
defending champion Vic-
toria Azarenka faces Svet-
lana Kuznetsova, who has
won the U.S. Open and
the French Open, and 15-
time major winner Serena
Williams is against 19-
year-old American Sloane
Stephens, who is playing
her first quarterfinal at a
Grand Slam.
Maria Sharapova com-
pleted a career Grand
Slam last year by winning
the French Open, a few
months after losing the
Australian Open final to
Azarenka.

strong defensive presence
in right field, while Garrels


will handle the catching
duties.
However, as is always
'the case in college soft-
ball, pitching is where the
great teams are separated
From the good teams, and
the Lady Indians have one
of the best pitchers in the
nation in Voortman, who
posted a record of 24-4 last
season with a 1.06 Earned
Run Average, 108 strike-
outs, and 65 walks.
But the Bilthoven, Neth-
erlands native could be
rusty to start the season
After missing all of fall ball
while back in her home
country.
Hendrix said it could take
Voortman a little while to
get back into prime form,
but there's no rush to over-
work her early in the sea-
son, with the Panhandle
Conference season and
the state tournament the
obvious priority.
"She can't just go out
there and throw and expect


to be successful right now,"
the coach said. "It may
be a couple of weeks or a
month before she's back
in pitching shape, but as
long as we have her come
conference, we'll be fine.
At this level, if you don't
have a dominant pitcher,
you won't be successful,
so to have'her is very im-
portant. She's a proven All
American."
The depth of the pitch-
ing staff took a hit with
the unexpected transfer of
Eron Milton, who started
12 games as a freshman,
but the Lady Indians will
look to incoming freshman
Rosanne de Vries also
of the Netherlands and
redshirt freshman and for
Sneads Lady Pirate Karissa
Childs to pick up the slack.
Childs was forced to sit
out her freshman season
after suffering a knee in-
jury, but Hendrix said she
expects her to be a key part
of the staff this season.


"Karissa is a winner. She
did an outstanding job
at Sneads and it hurt us
to lose her last season, so
I'm excited about having
-her," the coach said. "She
throws strikes, commands
her pitches well, is very
confident on the mound,
and controls her pitches
real well. Even when we
played (Division-I teams in
the fall), they didn't barrel
her up. Her pitches have a
different kind of spin."
De Vries is a left-hander
who throws in the low 60s
and gives the Lady Indi-
ans a different look in the
circle.
"All three are different,"
Hendrix said of Voort-
man, Childs, and de Vries.
"I don't know the rotation
yet. We'll just see who feels
right at the right time."
Chipola will open up
the season in Las Vegas on
Friday for the first of six
games starting with Cen-
tral Arizona, with College


of Southern Idaho, North
Idaho, Arizona West-
ern, Salt Lake, and Col-
lege of Southern Nevada

Horoscope

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb.
19) You won't have to
be told that duties that re-
quire your immediate at-
tention should be given
top priority.
PISCES (Feb.20-March20)
A convivial atmosphere
will help immensely if
there is some kind of busi-
ness matter that needs to
be discussed with others.
ARIES (March 21-April 19)
Because you're usually
such an upbeat person,
merely going along with
things could make you
look as if you're down in
the dumps.
TAURUS (April 20-May
20) Listen attentively to
someone who always has
something new to share. If
you retain what you hear,
chances are you'll later find
some ways to put it to use.
GEMINI (May 21-June
20) It'll pay to focus on
endeavors that could en-
hance your material secu-
rity. There are likely to be
several constructive steps
you can take.
CANCER (June 21-July 22)
It's OK to spend some
time on the advancement
of one of your primary in-
terests, even if you have to
break plans with another.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -
The best way to achieve a
critical objective is to keep
a low profile. You need to
pursue your intentions.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept.
22) Because friends will
sense your concern for
them is genuine, they'll
appreciate your efforts on
their behalf.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23)
- An objective that you
couldn't achieve in the
past looks like it can be
attained, mostly because
this time you're likely'to be
more flexible.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov.
22) You're likely to find
out that some knowledge
you recently acquired can
benefit a close friend as
much as it does you.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-
Dec. 21) -Your instincts re-
garding a commercial mat-
ter are likely to be a shade
sharper than usual.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan.
19) Try to avoid an ac-
quaintance who always
takes it upon themselves
to make the decisions.


Annie's Mailbox


Dear Annie: I've been studying abroad
in Rome for the past three months. I
head back to America in a few weeks. I
can honestly say I haven't missed being
home. I've absolutely loved my stay in
Europe. I feel safe and happy.
The one thing I'm dreading is reverse
culture shock. I'm afraid I'll resent my
small-town college or that I'll become
depressed when I get home. All of my
friends will have left for their own study-
abroad adventures. No one will be able
to speak the Italian I've learned and help
me maintain my fluency. The foods and
pastimes that I've become fond of are
nonexistent in America.
My European friends say I should just
enjoy the little time I have left abroad
and keep positive thoughts when I'm


Bridge

In "Star Trek: The Next Generation," Commander
Deanna Troi said, "Higher emotions are what
separate us from the lower orders of life. Higher
emotions ... and table manners."
This week we are looking at defenders leading
high or low cards from various holdings. The gen-
eral principle is to lead low from length when you
have at least one honor in that suit. With no honor,
you lead an unnecessarily high card. But, as I
mentioned yesterday, the most common excep-
tion occurs when you lead partner's suit. Then,
if you have not supported that suit, giving length
information is more important than strength
information.
In this example, what should West lead against
two spades when he has or has not raised hearts?
Should West bid two hearts? It is a borderline
decision. The pluses are showing support and
some values, and perhaps making North's rebid
more awkward. The minuses are the scant values
and the lack of a heart honor; if North becomes the
declarer, East might make a losing heart lead.
If West has not supported hearts, he should lead
the three: low from length. But if he has raised, he
should start with the nine: top of nothing.
Moving on, how can East-West defeat two
spades?
The defenders must take two hearts, two dia-
monds and two clubs. And this requires getting
the diamond tricks established before South can
discard a diamond from the dummy on his heart
jack.
East should win the first trick and shift to the dia-
mond queen, which is easier to find when West has
raised hearts and led the nine to deny an honor.


back in America, but I don't expect my
reimmersion process to be that easy.
How can I learn to stop living like a dead
man walking and not fall into a pit of
despair once I board the plane "home"?
PINING FOR ROME

Dear Rome: Please recognize how fortu-
nate you are to have had the opportunity
to spend time in Europe and the fact that
you've enjoyed it so much. You will miss
your Italian friends and Italian pasta, but
try not to over-romanticize the experi-
ence. Accept it for the short-term fun
it was, and know that you can certainly
return whenever you can afford to do so.
How well you adjust depends entirely on
your attitude. Be determined to make it
as positive as possible.

Daytona International unveils plans for upgrade

CHARLOTTE, N.C. Daytona
International Speedway could
be getting a facelift.
The speedway unveiled artist
renderings Tuesday that show
what a proposed redevelop-
ment of the historic 53-year-old
Florida racetrack would look
like. The plan calls for five new
modern entrances, a second pe-
destrian bridge for easier access
to the track and an expanded
grandstand area with thousands
of new seats. The project, if ap-

Ambitions
From Page 1B
relief pitcher, and Jeff
Johnson said he'll be
counted on to be a
stabilizer out of the bullpen
all season.
"Alex will pitch a bunch
of innings for us this year,"
the coach said. "He's just
got to get to commanding
the ball a little better."
Though the staff is short
on experience, the coach
said that the talent level is,
as high as he has seen it in
his 17 season as coach of
the Indians.
"We've probably got as
many good arms here
as we've ever had at one
point," he said. "The prob-
lems is we have three or
four right now that can't
throw a breaking ball for a
strike and that scares you.
I guess'the pitching coach
(Johnson) has to do a bet-
ter job; I have to get my
butt to work.
"Butwe'vego.tgood arms.
We've just got to learn how..
to pitch, compete, hold
runners, and just learn the
position. With a bunch of
new ones, it's going to take
some time."
While there's little in the
way of proven commodi-
ties on the pitching staff,
there's even less in the
lineup, as the Indians re-


turn no position players
from last year's team.
I The coach said that no
one individual has stood
out from the rest thus far,
but that he has confidence
that everyone who picks
up a bat f6r Chipola this
season can be a produc-
tive player.
"It's a work in progress,
but I think we'll swing the
ball hopefully throughout
the lineup," he said. "I re-
ally feel like if we go one-
through-nine in the lineup,
or even to 10 or 11, I don't


really see any automatic
outs in our lineup. We just
need guys to step up and
say, 'I'm a 3-4-5 hitter,' or
'I'm a lead-off hitter.'"
Defense is an area in
which the coach said his
team needs to make posi-
tive progress from its per-
formance in the fall.
"We made too many er-
rors in the fall. We've got
to get our percentages up
on defense and take better
angles in the outfield and
have more sound footwork
with how we're playing the


ball (in the infield)."
While, many coaches
dread the prospect of
coaching a team with little
experience or continuity
from the previous season,
Jeff Johnson said that he
actually enjoys working
with young groups like the
one he has this year.
"It's kind of fun. It's a
challenge," he said. "It's
fun because with this
group, you can mold them
like you want them. In one
way, it's frustrating be-
cause you don't have any-


body here who knows the are able to trust each other
way you do things, but it's that do the best."
