Residents


cautioned


Chipola

river rising
Staff report

Jackson County Emergency
Management is urging resi-
dents with property along the
Chipola River to remain aware
of rising water levels, especially
later in the week.
In light of the volume of rain
accompanying
Recent storms,
JCEM Direc-
tor Rodney An-
dreasen says
Folks should be
prepared to take
Andreasen precautions to
ensure property
is safe and that they don't get
trapped by any rising water that
may cover roads near the river.
On Monday, the National
Weather Service had' more rain
forecast for Tuesday, Wednes-
day and possibly Thursday.
The Chipola River, according
to JCEM, is expected to reach
action stage of 15 feet just be-
fore 4 p.m. Thursday and con-
tinue to rise to 16.4 feet just af-
ter 4 p.m. Friday.
Officials say the river is not
expected to exceed flood stage
(19 feet); however, because of
rising water, animals, including
various reptiles, could be forced
out of areas that have not flood-
ed in the past year.
The JCEM office urges resi-
dents to monitor the river's
water level, exercise caution
and secure property along the
river's edge.

Malone rallies to win district title

point first-half deficit and a bar-. and outscored Paxton 23-14 in
rage of Bobcats 3-pointers to the fourth period to close the


game out.
It was a lot more work for the
Tigers than their 103-33 semifi-
nal win over Central on Friday,
but Tigers coach Steven Welch
said he was happy to see his
team be able to handle adversity
like it did Saturday.
"Your back is up against the
wall at that point," the coach
said. "(At halftime), we just had a
conversation about our first day
of practice and what our goals


were and are we going to fight
for them or let them slip away?
At that point, it's not about talk-
ing anymore. You've just got to
go out and do it.
"Our guys did a great job of
gathering themselves and play-
ing through some adversity. I'm
very proud of them. But credit
to Paxton. They shot it very well
Sand didn't turn it over much. For
some reason, they do play'well
against what we do. To withstand


that rally and beat a team that's
pretty good three times says a lot
about our guys and how much
they want to win."

BY DUSTIN KENT
dkent@jcfloridan.com

The No. 8 Chipola Lady Indians overcame a 12-point first-half
deficit to take a 71-56 victory over the Tallahassee Lady Eagles on
Saturday night in Marianna.
With the win, the Lady Indians (22-3) clinched a berth in the
state tournament and moved into sole possession of first place in
the Panhandle Confer-
ence at 7-2.
Chipola is now a full
game clear of North-
west Florida State and
Gulf Coast State, both
tied for second place
at 6-3, and can clinch
a share of the confer-
ence title with a vic-
tory over the Lady
Raiders in Niceville on
Wednesday.
It's a strong posi-
tion to be in with three
league games left on
the schedule, but the
Lady Indians had to
o' fight out of an early
C (,,hole Saturday night to
Sget there.
The Lady Eagles, who
came in needing a win

the top three positions
in the Panhandle need-
ed to advance to state,

Saturday. But Chipola stormed
back with a 22-4 run to
close the half and took a 34-28 lead into the break.
The Lady Indians continued to build on the lead in the second
half, with much of the heavy lifting being done by the sophomore
duo of Rayven Brooks and Kristine Brince.
The two combined for 46 points and nine 3-pointers, with
Brooks leading the way with 24 points, six rebounds, four as-
sists, six steals, and two blocked shots, while Brance put iln
22 points and four steals with a team-best 5-of-8 from long
distance.
Chipola made 10-of-24 threes for the game compared to just
1-of-8 for the Lady Eagles, who fell'to 3-6 in conference play and
out of the postseason mix with the loss.
TCC leading scorer Jeraldine Campbell had a tough offensive
outing, converting just 3-of-12 from the floor and finishing with
12 points.
Yanique Gordon led the Lady Eagles with 15 points, while
Jasmine Crawford added 12 for the Lady Indians.

BY DUSTIN KENT

The No. 12 Chipola Indians
made it six Panhandle Confer-
ence wins in a row Saturday night
at home, overcoming a some-
what sluggish start to cruise to
an 87-67 victory over the Talla-

With the win, Chipola (24-2
overall, 7-2 in the Panhandle
Conference) stayed within one
game of first-place Northwest
Florida State (8-1) in the league
standings and moved one win
away from clinching a berth in
the state tournament.
Carlos Morris had 20 points
and 10 rebounds to lead the
Indians, with Chris Thomas
adding 15 points, Demetrious
Floyd 13 and Cinmeon Bowers
12.
CJ Washington had 26 points
and eight boards to top TCC,
while Curtis Diamond had 19
points.
The game was nip and tuck
in theearly going, with Chipola
taking a 39-37 lead into the half-
time break.
But the Indians seized con-
trol from the start in the second
half, using a 15-0 run to blow the
game open and take a 63-43 lead

BY DUSTIN KENT
.dkent@jcfloridan.com

The Chipola Lady Indians

the weekend, winning all four
games at home to extend
their winning streak to seven

8-0 over Lamar State and 6-1
over Snead State on Saturday,
and then topped Wallace State-

lowing one hit and three walks

Against Snead State on Sat-
urday, the game was tied 1-1
through three innings before
the Lady Indians exploded
for four runs in the top of the
fourth, and then added another
run iithe fifth on an RBI single


by Jasmine Tanksley.
Tanksley and Stephanie
Garrels each had two hits for
Chipola, with Eva Voortman
starting in the circle and get-
ting the win with one earned
run on four hits, no walks and
three strikeouts in five innings.
Karissa Childs closed it out
with one scoreless, hitless in-
ning in the sixth.
In Sunday's opener against
Wallace State-Hanceville, the
Lady Indians broke open a 1-1
tie with a two-run sixth thanks
to an RBI groundout by Hayley
Parker and an RBI sacrifice fly
by Borak.

one earned run on three hits,
three walks, and two strikeouts,
but Voortman got the win with
2 2/3 scoreless innings, allow-
ing one hit and no walks, with
three strikeouts.

scoreless innings of relief from
Kaitlin Hussey, who allowed six

a perfect seventh inning that
included two strikeouts.
Garrels led Chipola offensive-
ly by going 2-for-3 with an RBI,
while Tanksley was 1-for-2 with
a double, a walk and two RBls.lL

Annie's Mailbox


Dear Annie: Twenty years ago, 'my wife
had an affair with a co-worker. It ended
when he moved back to his home state
2,000 miles away. At the time, I asked my
wife to go to counseling with me. We made
it to one session before she pronounced
our marriage "healed."
Sixteen months ago, out of the blue, this
same guy contacted my wife via email,
and they began communicating. I discov-
ered they were planning to meet in Las
Vegas. I begged her not to go, but she was
convinced she loved him and had to know
if they should be together. The month be-
fore her trip, I endured more pain than
I've ever experienced. I set up counseling
sessions for us with separate therapists,
arranged a meeting with our pastor and
lost 20 pounds from the stress,
In the end, this creep flaked out on their
Vegas rendezvous, probably because he
couldn't see himself leaving his children
for her. She also was reluctant to leave
our kids. However, the breakup crushed
her, and she initially refused to work on
our marriage. Finally, we went to a joint


Bridge

Some declarers, instead of working safely in port
to make their contract, take risks on the high seas
of bad distribution.
In this example deal, South is in three no-trump.
West leads the heart eight (top of nothing), East
wins with his king and shifts to the diamond queen.
West correctly wins with his king and returns the
10, East overtaking with his jack. South ducks and
wins the next diamond, West and dummy discard-
ing hearts. How should South continue?
North's two-club rebid was New Minor Forcing,
indicating at least game-invitational values and
asking South to describe his hand further. Two no-
trump denied three spades and four hearts.
This auction kept dummy's heart suit hidden
momentarily, but resulted in the most damaging
defense. Yesterday we saw that when North rebid a
game-forcing three hearts, West led a club, the un-
bid suit. Then South took a safety-play in spades
(cash the ace, followed by low to dummy's 10) to
ensure his contract.
Even now it looks as though dummy's spades
will provide the necessary tricks. However, a cau-
tious declarer will cash his club winners first. Here
he learns that West started with four hearts (pre-
sumably), two diamonds and two clubs. He seems
marked with five spades. So declarer cashes his
spade ace and plays a spade to dummy's 10.


counseling session, but when the thera-
pist made reference to her "profound be-
trayal," that was that.
My wife refuses to rehash what hap-
,pened. I'm worried that the only reason
she is recommitting to our marriage is
because the other man gave up on her.
Things just don't feel the same. She in-
sists she's done with this guy, but who re-
ally knows? Is it possible to move forward
without dealing with the past?
TORN UP IN CALIFORNIA

Dear Tom: Maybe, but not if your wife
is using your marriage as her rebound
relationship in order to' soothe her heart-
break. That's a temporary commitment.
Refusing to examine the reasons behind
her vulnerability to the affair leaves open
the possibility of repeating the betrayal
- and this is undoubtedly what most
worries you.
You cannot force your wife to work on
this, so please get counseling for yourself,
on your own. You need to learn what you
can live with.

Okaloosa County


officials grilled


over tourism fraud


The Associated Press

TALLAHASSEE, Flori-
da lawmakers grilled Oka-
loosa County officials on
Monday about how their
tourism director man-
aged to spend more than
$1.4 million in tax and BP
oil spill grant money on
a home, yacht and other
luxury items.
The Joint Legislative
Auditing Committee also
ordered the state auditor
general's office to conduct
an operational audit of the
Board of County Commis-
sioners and court clerk's
office, which also serves
as custodian of county
funds..
The Panhandle county's
tourism director, Mark
Bellinger, committed sui-
cide through a drug over-
dose a day after he was re-
ported missing and three
days after resigning last
May.
Bellinger quit after he
was accused of using
$747,000 in BP money to
buy a home in Destin. He
also acknowledged spend-
ing $710,000 in tax funds
to buy the yacht, saying he
intended to use it to pro-
mote tourism.
BP provided millions to
Gulf Coast communities
for tourism promotion to
counteract negative pub-
licity they had received
after a massive spill from
one of the company's off-
shore wells in 2010.
Committee members
questioned how Bellinger
could have misspent the
money without county
commissioners and other
officials knowing about it.
"What has occurred here
is really a travesty," said
Sen. Joseph Abruzzo, a
Wellington Democrat who
chairs the panel.
SAbruzzo said he also was
considering issuing sub-
poenas to former mem-
bers of Okaloosa's Tourist
Development Council who


failed to appear voluntarily
Monday. The county board
only last week asked them
to resign.
County Board Chairman
Don Amunds said he had
been led to believe they
didn't have to appear after
the board asked them to
resign last week.
"It seems like a deliber-
ate attempt by your board
to ensure that they didn't
have to be here today,"
Abruzzo said.
County Administrator
Jim Curry defended the
timing. He said last week's
board meeting was the
first since the state auditor
general's office completed
a report on the misspent
tourism funds and law
enforcement officials gave
the county clearance to
act.
State, county and fed-
eral authorities had asked
the board not to interview
employees or officials
pending the completion
of a criminal investigation,
which remains open.
"How could this have
happened?" asked Rep.
Gayle Harrell, R-Stuart.
"It's just incomprehensible
to me."
"There was a catastroph-
ic failure of controls, across
the board at all levels,"
Curry replied.
Amunds and Curry told
the panel the county has
made policy changes
aimed at preventing it
from happening again in-
cluding putting the Tourist
Development Council and
its new executive director
under the county adminis-
trator's supervision.
The auditor general's re-
port says the county never
budgeted the tourist de-
velopment funds, result-
ing in $4.2 million in over
expenditures.
Rep. Matt Gaetz, a Destin
Republican who represents
Okaloosa, said the outrage
of local citizens exceeds
that of the lawmakers.

Contest seeks underworldly names for 2 Pluto moons


The Associated Press

CAPE CANAVERAL-
Wafit to name Pluto's two
tiniest moons? Then you'll
need to dig deep into
mythology.
Astronomers announced
a contest Monday to name
the two itty-bitty moons of
Pluto discovered over the
past two years.
Pluto is the Roman
equivalent of the Greek's
Hades, lord of the under-
world, and its three bigger
moons have related myth-
ological names: Charon,
the ferryman of Hades; Nix
for the night goddess; and
the multi-headed monster
Hydra.
The two unnamed
moons -no more than 15
to 20 miles across need
similarly shady references.
Right now, they go by the
bland titles of P4 and P5.
Online voting will last
two weeks, ending Feb. 25.
Twelve choices are avail-
able at the website http://
www.plutorocks.com.
Among the choices: Her-
cules, the hero who slew
Hydra; Obol, the coin put
in the mouths of the dead
as payment to Charon;
Cerebrus, the three-head-
ed dog guarding the gates
of the underworld; Or-
pheus, the musician and
poet who used his talents
to get his wife, Eurydice,
out of the underworld
only to lose her by look-
ing back: Eurydice; and
Styx, the river to the
underworld.
As of Monday afternoon,
Styx and Cerebrus were
leading. The vote tally is
updated hourly.
"The Greeks were great
storytellers, and they have
given us a colorful cast of


THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
This photo provided and annotated by NASA/Hubble Space Telescope shows the five moons
in their orbits around Pluto. The smallest moons no more than 20 miles (32 kilometers)
across were discovered in that past two years and are currently referred to as P4 and
P5. Astronomers announced a contest Monday, Feb. 11, to name the two tiny moons. Twelve
choices are available at the website "plutorocks."


characters to work with,"
said Mark Showalter, se-
nior research scientist at
SETI Institute's Carl Sagan
Center in Mountain View,
Calif.
He and other astrono-
mers who discovered the
two mini-moons using the
Hubble Space Telescope
will make the winning
selections.
Write-in name sugges-
tions are welcomed, but
they need to come from
Greek or Roman mythol-
ogy and deal with the


underworld.
The name for the plan-
-etoid, or dwarf planet
near the outer fringes of
the solar system came
from a little English girl.
Pluto's discoverer, Clyde
Tombaugh, liked that the
first two letters were the
same as the initials of
late American astrono-
mer Percival Lowell. Tom-
baugh discovered Pluto in
1930 using the Lowell
Observatory in Flagstaff,
Ariz.
NASAs New Horizons


spacecraft is en route to
Pluto, arriving in 2015 on
the first robotic flyby ever
of the planetoid.
The winning moon
names will need final ap-
proval by the International
Astronomical Union.
Hopefully, there won't
be any conflicts like when
the name Nix was picked.
The night goddess actu-
ally is spelled Nyx, but an
asteroid already had the
moniker so the proper
spelling for the moon had
to be nixed.


US shark attacks hit highest level since 2000


The Associated Press

GAINESVILLE Schol-
ars say shark attacks in the
U.S. reached their highest

ILLUSTRATION COURTESY PAULA DONOFRO & ASSOCIATES ARCHITECTS
In this undated illustration from Paul A. Donofro & Associates Architects, a site development plan shows the layout and
amenities of the proposed Chipola River Park. The project, if funded, would be built near the city limits of Marianna, where
US 90 crosses over the river.


Park
From Page 1A

design for a park that
would be located just
south of US 90/Lafayette
Street and west of the
Chipola River.
Planned amenities in-
clude a paved parking lot,
boardwalks, pavilions, an
adjustable elevation deck
at the river's edge and a


ramp that would allow
kayak or canoe launches.
During the meeting,
City Manager Jim Dean
reminded commission-
ers that the city had ap-
plied for a transporta-
tion enhancement grant
approximately one year
ago to develop the land
where the proposed park
will sit.
Estimated cost of the
project, Dean said, is
$280,000. Funding for the


park is dependent on an
upcoming decision by
FDOT regarding that de-
partment's five-year plan.
If Chipola River Park
is included in FDOT's
five-year plan, it will
be funded, Dean said.
Potential reimbursement
is expected a year from
July.
Dean said the city
would be reimbursed 100
percent of the construc-
tion cost, but may have


to pay for engineering
services.
Commissioner John
Roberts said he thought
the park, as a gateway to
Marianna, would be great
for the city.
After a brief word of
caution from Commis-
sioner/Mayor James Wise
about making sure FDOT
funding was in place be-
fore proceeding, the board
voted to move forward
with the project.

The Associated Press

RIO DE JANEIRO -
From the parishes of Po-
land to the churches of
Chile, Roman Catholics
around the world were
stunned Monday at the
first papal resignation in
six centuries, even as many
prayed for a new charis-
matic pontiff who could
lead the church into
a new era after decades
of disaffection and
mistrust.
Cardinal Thomas Cal-
lins of Toronto, Canada,
echoed the sentiments of
many of the faithful Mon-
day when he said, "It was
quite a shock. I was like,
'The pope has resigned?"'
"We received the news
with great regret and much
surprise," said Honduran
Cardinal Oscar Rodri-
guez Maradiaga, who was
discussed as a possible
successor to Pope' John
Paul II when he died in
2005. "This is something
completely new for the
Catholic Church though
it was discussed during
the illness of Pope John
Paul II. I didn't know
Pope Benedict XVI would
make this decision,
but the last time I talked to
him he seemed physically
tired."
Alis Ramirez, afi ice
cream seller headed to
church in the Venezuelan
capital of Caracas, insist-
ed, "He can't quit like that.
This can't be."
But a few didn't consider
it bad news at all.
"I don't care or feel sor-
ry that that the Pope re-
signed because he never
entered my heart like John
Paul II did," said Rosita
Mejia, who sells religious
icons outside La Mer-
ced church in downtown
Santiago, Chile. "In fact,
it's good that he leaves.
He's done his job and it's
time for him to rest. In
five years outside this
church, only one person
asked me for a Benedict
J stamp, while hundreds
"* .,', ':1i ... .


asked for John Paul's
stamp."
Inside, Pedro Prado
mopped the shiny wood-
en floor of La Merced,
where he has been the
sexton for more than 25
years.
"It's not normal for the
pope to resign. I just hope
health is the real reason.
There were a lot of is-
sues coming out with the
pope's butler papers," said
Prado, referring to the


scandal over a former
butler stealing documents
from the papal apartment.
The pope's announce-
ment that he will step
aside on Feb. 28 brought
reawakened calls for a
more energetic succes-
sor, perhaps from Africa
or Latin America long
considered a bulwark
against continued losses
in church membership
in Europe and the United
States.
