Arrest made in double homicide


From staff reports

Walton County Sheriff Mi-
chael A. Adkinson Jr. announced
Wednesday that an arrest has
been made in the homicides of
Heidi Rhodes, 41, of Panama
City Beach, and John Hughes,
49, of Santa Rosa Beach.
Charged with the crime is Barry
Davis, 27, of DeFuniak Springs.
The agency said in a press


release that the charges stem
from months of police work
that required
more than 2,000
man-hours from
sheriff's investiga-
tors, who served
numerous search
warrants and sub-
Davis poenas, exhausted
leads, conducted
interviews and worked with


several other jurisdictions dur-
ing the length of this case. WCSO
reports' it has worked closely
with the State Attorney's Office
in conjunction with this case.
As a result of their efforts, in-
vestigators identified Davis as a
suspect.
In May 2012, the sheriff's office
began a missing person inves-
tigation involving Rhodes and
Hughes. Rhodes' dog, Molly, was


also unable to be located. They
were last heard from by family
and friends early in May. No in-
dication was made by the couple
that they were moving or going
out of town. A welfare check of
Hughes' home found it to be
empty, with his two vehicles
missing.
During the investigation,
WCSO says Davis became a
person of interest. He last saw


Hughes and Rhodes on May 7,
2012.
According to Davis, Hughes
hired the suspect to pack a rent-
al truck with furniture and per-
sonal belongings from Hughes'
Seagrove Beach home.
Davis also told investigators he
was asked to sell Hughes' car and
manage his properties. That car,

SWEETS FOR A SWEETHEART

weet Stuff Bakery and Catering owner Vicki Baker puts the finishing touches on
aValentine's Day 6ake Wednesday. The staff was busy making Valentine's Day
treats and taking orders for more. Baker added that Valentine's Day is one of the
bakery's three big holidays, with the other two being Christmas and Thanksgiving.


MARK SKINNER/FLORIDAN
Jackson County Road and Bridge Department markers alert
drivers to flood waters covering Bumpnose Road. Heavy rains
earlier in the week also caused closures or obstructions on
four other roads.


Water remains


a problem as


storms clear


out of the area


From staff reports

Following days of heavy
rain, the skies began to
clearWednesday, but water
already on the ground and
still flowing down from the
north' remained a concern
for many in the county, es-
pecially those living near
Malone and Marianna.
Road closures
The Jackson County Road
and Bridge Department re-
ported Tuesday on the clo-
sure or obstruction due to
rain on three roads in the
Malone aiea: New Bridge,
Ulyss and St. Phillips.
And on Wednesday
morning, the department
added two in the Marianna
area to its list of rain-relat-
ed road closures: Bump-
nose Road (by White Pond
Road) and Baker Creek
Road (at Christoff Ferry
Road).
River watch
Hardest hit by the week's


deluge were our neighbors
in Alabama, with many
residents in Geneva and
Houston counties still in
flood-recovery mode.
As that excess rainwater
flows toward the Gulf of
Mexico, rivers and streams
along the way, includ-
ing the Chipola River, will
swell.
While not forecast to
flood, the Chipola's wa-
ter level is still rising and
should be monitored for
the next few days by those
living near or having prop-
erty on the river.
According to the Na-
tional Weather Service in
Tallahassee, at 5 p.m. on
Wednesday, the Chipola
River at U.S. 90 was ob-
served at 17.00 feet, half
way between Action Stage
(15 feet) and Flood Stage
(19 feet).
The latest 48-hour fore-
cast from the NWS has
the Chipola River crest-
ing at 17.70 feet sometime
Friday.


Fire rescue looks to purchase laptops to enhance patient care


BY DEBORAH BUCKHALTER
dbuckhalter@jcfloridan.com

Jackson County Fire Rescue is
hoping a new bank of Panasonic
Toughbooks will help enhance
patient care as the medical team
responds to emergencies in the
field.
The department received per-
mission Tuesday to apply for a
grant of $50,000 to purchase 10
of the laptop/tablet units. If the


money is awarded by the Florida
Department of Health's Bureau
of Emergency Medical Service,
the county would be responsible
for 10 percent of the cost if the
grant is approved as a rural assis-
tance project, or for 25 percent
if the .state approves the grant
as a general matching project,
instead.
Equipped with Bluetooth and
internal mobile broadband ca-
pabilities, the laptops would


replace the aging Dell XFR com-
puters now being used in the
county's five ambulances. Fire
Rescue Chief Tony Wesley would
also be assigned one for use in
his department vehicle, another
would go into the rescue truck
now on order for the department,
and one would be assigned to
the assistant chief once that new
position is filled. Two would go
into county fire trucks.
Lt. Paramedic Charlie Brunner


is writing the grant in his first at-
tempt at that task. He said the
new computers are lighter and
less bulky than the existing com-
puters, making them more user-
friendly in the field.
Brunner said the new comput-
ers are expected to enhance care
by allowing emergency teams
to immediately transmit vital
signs and other critical data to
receiving hospitals as it is being
collected, rather than handing


it over on printouts when they
arrive with the patient at those
facilities. For instance, hospi-
tals Would receive full readings
from cardiac monitoring rhythm
strips, from the point the pa-
tient is picked up by fire rescue
through the time they arrive at
the hospital. Currently, the hos-
pital only receives a small repre-
sentative strip of rhythm data on

In Brief
New medal created
for cyber, drone wars
WASHINGTON They
fight the war from com-
puter consoles and video
screens.
But the troops that
launch the drone strikes
and direct the cyberattacks
that can kill or disable an
enemy may never set foot
in the combat zone. Now
their battlefield contribu-
tions may be recognized.
Defense Secretary
Leon Panetta announced
Wednesday that for the
first time the Pentagon is
creating a medal that can
be awarded to troops who
have a direct impact on
combat operations, but do
it from afar.
The new blue, red and
white-ribboned Distin-
guished Warfare Medal
will be awarded to indi-
viduals for "extraordinary
achievement" related to a
military operation that oc-
curred after Sept. 11, 2001.
But unlike other combat
medals, it does not require
the recipient risk his or her
life to get it.

Harry Potter books to
get new covers in US
NEWYORK The Harry
Potter books are getting a
makeover.
Scholastic Inc. an-
nounced Wednesday that
new covers have been
commissioned for U.S.
trade paperback editions
ofJ.K. Rowling's block-
buster series. The first new
cover, for "Harry Potter
and the Sorcerer's Stone,"
replaces Mary GrandPre's
iconic sandy-colored
design of Harry in flight
with a purplish-blue street
setting by graphic novelist
Kazu Kibuishi. The Grand-
Pre illustrations will still be
used for hardcovers and
mass market paperbacks.
The new edition of "Sor-
cerer's Stone" is scheduled
for September, the 15th
anniversary of Potter's
debut in the U.S. The Brit-
ish editions are published
by Bloomsbury. They have
long had separate designs
from the U.S. versions.

White House releases
college cost website
WASHINGTON The
White House is releasing a
website designed to help
college-bound students
have a better sense of how
much their education
will cost and how much
they can expect to pay in
student loans.
President Barack Obama
promised the tool dur-
ing Tuesday's State of
the Union speech and
Education Department
officials published the
data earlyWednesday.
On the website, potential
students and their parents
can see a typical student's
out-of-pocket costs, as
well as what percentage of
students graduate.
The searchable database
also lets students com-
pare the rates at which
graduates default on their
student loans against the
national average of 13 per-
cent, and how much the
typical student pays each
month in student loans.
In coming years, the site
promises data on how
much graduates earn.

Companies restocked
at slower pace
WASHINGTON U.S.
companies restocked
their store shelves and
warehouses at a slower
pace in December, a sign
of caution as sales weak-


ened. Slower restocking
was a major drag on the
economy in the final three
months of last year.
Business inventories
ticked up 0.1 percent in
December from Novem-
ber, the Commerce De-
partment'said Wednesday.
That was below the 0.2
percent pace the previous
month and the smallest
increase since last June.
Total sales for wholesal-
ers, retailers and manufac-
turers increased only 0.3
percent, down from a 0.9
percent clip in November.

Carjacking victim says fugitive ex-cop was calm


The Associated Press

BIG BEAR LAKE, Calif.
- There was no question.
The man standing before
Rick Heltebrake on a rural
mountain road was Chris-
topher Dorner.
Clad in camouflage from
head to.toe and wearing
a bulletproof vest packed
with magazines, the most
wanted man in America
over the last week was just
a few feet away, having
emerged from a grove of
trees holding a large, as-
sault-style rifle.
Teams of officers who
had sought the fugitive
ex-Los Angeles police of-
ficer since last week were
closing in. Dorner pointed
the gun at Heltebrake and
ordered him to get out of
his truck.
' "I don't want to hurt you.

your dog,'" Heltebrake re-
called Dorner saying dur-

going any gear, got into the
truck and drove on. Helte-
brake, with his 3-year-old
Dalmatian Suni in tow,
called police when he
heard a volley of gunfire
erupt soon after.
A short time later, the
police had caught up with
a man they believe was
Dorner and surrounded
a cabin in which he had


barricaded himself and
began a standoff that was
broadcast around the
world and ended with the
man's death in the burning
building..
By day's end, the man
had mounted a last stand
in a shootout in which
he killed a sheriff's dep-
uty and wounded an-
other before the building


erupted in flames.
A charred body was
found in the basement of
the burned cabin along
with a wallet and per-
sonal items, including a
California driver's license
with the name Christo-
pher Dorner, an official
briefed on the investi-
gation told The Associ-
ated Press on condition
of anonymity because
of the ongoing
investigation.
The coroner's office is
studying the remains to
positively determine the
identity. It was not clear
how the cabin caught fire.
Recalling his encoun-
ter, Heltebrake said on
Wednesday that he wasn't
panicked in his meet-'
ing with Dorner because
he didn't feel the fugi-
tive wanted to hurt him.
"He wasn't wild-eyed,
just almost profession-
al," he said. "He was on a
mission."
"It was clear I wasn't part
of his agenda and there


were other people down
the road that were part of
his agenda," he said.
Dorner, 33, had said in
a rant that authorities be-
lieve he posted on Face-
book last week that he
expected to die, with the
police chasing him, as he
embarked on a campaign
of revenge against the Los
Angeles Police Depart-
ment for his firing.
If the body proves to
be Dorner, the death toll
in his rampage would be
four, including two police
officers, one of them killed
on Tuesday.
The apparent end came
in the same mountain
range where his trail
went cold six days ear-
lier, when his burning
pickup truck with
guns and camping gear
inside was abandoned
and on fire near the
ski resort town of Big Bear
Lake.
His footprints led away
from the truck and van-
ished on frozen soil.

Boehner voices skepticism on budget prospects


The Associated Press

WASHINGTON House
Speaker John Boeh-
ner expressed doubts
Wednesday that the Re-
publican-led House and
Democratic-controlled
Senate could reach agree-
ment on a budget and
avoid automatic spending
cuts that could jeopardize
economic growth.
In a post-State of the
Union interview with The
Associated Press, Boeh-
ner was also skeptical
about President Barack
Obama's new proposal for
federally supported uni-
versal pre-school. And he
showed little support for
Obama's core proposals
on immigration reform
and gun control, includ-
ing universal background
checks.
But it's the economy and
deficit at the top of the
congressional priority list
as Obama and lawmak-
ers face looming fiscal
crises confronting the na-
tion: the deep automatic
spending cuts, called 'a
"sequester," to take effect
March 1, followed by the
government running out
of money to fund federal
agencies March 27.
Boehner, seeking to
keep the government
from lurching from one
crisis to another, has also
pressed for Washington
to get back to passing
regular budgets. But he
expressed pessimism
about whether that
was possible given the
deep divisions on Capitol
Hill.
"It's hard to imagine that
you could reconcile what
the House and Senate
pass, but at some point,
in some manner, it almost


has to happen if we're go-
ing to deal with our long-
term spending problem,"
Boehner said.
The Ohio Republican
also reiterated his op-
position to letting the
sequester take effect,
and served up a reality
check to members of his
caucus who say pub-
licly that they would'
be willing to let the $85
billion in across-the-board
cuts take effect on March
1.
"None of them have ever
lived under a sequester.
For that "matter, neither
have I," Boehner said.
"This is going to be a little
bleak around here when
this actually happens and
people actually have to
make decisions."
The president wants
to put off the sequester
through a combination of
targets spending cuts and
increased tax revenue. Re-


publicans want to offset
the sequester with spend-
ing cuts alone.
Obama also used the
prime-time speech Tues-
day to call for action on! a
broad agenda that includ-
ed the economy, guns, im-
migration, taxes and cli-
mate change. He offered
new initiatives on voting,
manufacturing, and re-
search and development.
He said he wanted to raise
the minimum wage, lower
energy use, and expand
pre-school programs for
all 4-year-olds.
While Obama left out
key details of the pre-
school program, includ-
ing the cost to the federal
government, administra-
tion officials said ahead
of Tuesday's speech that
the proposal would in-
clude the government
providing financial in-
centives to assist states.
The president is expect-

New resource available for


career seekers at Chipola College


BY ANGIE COOK
acook@jcfloridan.com

Students at Chipola College now
have a new way to try and get a leg
up on finding a job, landing a job, or
choosing an industry best suited to
their interests. On Wednesday, the
school officially opened its Career
Resource Center. *
On hand to talk about what the
facility has to offer were represen-
tatives from the college and project
partner Chipola Regional Workforce
Development Board Inc., a non-
profit organization that works to
help local businesses find qualified
employees.
CRWDB success coach Lisa Ham-
ilton, who will man the center, says
students can come in to take part in
online and live workshops, and ac-
cess websites that will direct them
to listings for jobs in our area and
across the state.
Chipola says the center will also*
provide labor market -information
about demand occupations, pro-
jected job openings, and projected
pay for various occupations.
That sounds good to Jannetta Pe-
ters, a nursing student hailing from
Port St. Joe. She said she thinks the
center will be a great resource for her
and her schoolmates.
Fellow student Shiloh Mosier, of
Chipley, also looked eager to learn
about job information and career
data that could be found through the
center, which may help her as she
pursues her education and prepares
to embark on her chosen career as a
high school English teacher.
Christen Bennett, an academic
advisor with Chipola College, de-
scribed the center as a one-stop shop
for students looking to either post a

com website.
During Wednesday's event, Dr.
Jason Hurst, vice president of Bac-
calaureate and Occupational Edu-
cation at the school, said, "Chipola
College does a great job of getting
students in the door, getting them
registered, getting them in our pro-
grams, graduating them, but we felt
like we could do a better job of (...)
getting them jobs."
Hurst thinks the Career Resource
Center will help Chipola do just
that.
The center, located in the college's
Workforce Development building,
will have staff available 8:30 a.m. to
4 p.m., Tuesdays and Wednesdays, to
work directly with Chipola students
in helping them understand what
skills and training are in demand by
employers.

Traffic stop leads to
drug possession charge
The Holmes County Sheriff's Of-
fice reports that at approximately
9:15 a.m. on Friday, Feb. 8, a Holmes
County deputy on patrol in the
Prosperity Community observed a
Chevrolet Blazer be-
ing driven recklessly.
The officer condu&t-
ed a traffic stop and
made contact with
the driver, 32-year-old
Nicholas Earl Jim-
Jimmerson merson of DeFuniak
Springs. During the
stop the deputy obtained consent to
search the vehicle and located a bag
'ofmethamphetamine inside.
Jimmerson was placed under
arrest for possession of controlled
substance (methamphetamine) and
transported to the Holmes County
Jail to await his first appearance in
court.

Scott wants $4.5 mil to help
trafficking victims
MIAMI Gov. Rick Scott wants
to earmark roughly $4.5 million in
the state budget to fight human traf-
ficking and help victims recover in a
safe place after they're rescued.
The bulk of the money will create
30 rape crisis centers statewide and
help improve law enforcement re-
sponse to crimes of rape and sexual


abuse.
Scott said Wednesday that $1.5
million will also provide victims of
sex trafficking with a safe place to
go after they've been rescued. In
the past, victims have often been
charged with prostitution or held
in juvenile detention facilities. The
"safe houses" around the state will
help victims heal in a therapeutic
environment. ,
Juvenile Justice and child welfare
officials also announced a pilot
program that identifies trafficking
victims.

Gov. Scott to lead
trade mission to Paris
TALLAHASSEE Florida Gov.
Rick Scott is heading on another
trade mission, and this time he's
going to Paris.
The state's jobs development
agency announced Wednesday that
Scott will lead a delegation of avia-
tion, aerospace and defense firms
to the 50th International Paris Air
Show in June.
Scott last year attended an air
show held in the United Kingdom.
He has gone on several interna-
tional trade missions since becom-
ing governor including trips to
Spain, Israel, Brazil, Canada and
Colombia.
Scott is scheduled to lead a trade
mission to Chile in late May. Scott
has defended the foreign trips as

DOH wants to revoke
Miami doctor's license
MIAMI State health officials are
recommending that the Board of
Medicine revoke the medical license
of a Miami doctor who prescribed
about 96,685 mental health drugs to
Medicaid patients in 18 months.
Florida Department of Health offi-.
cials recommended last month that
the Board of Medicine reprimand,
fine or limit Dr. Fernando Mendez
Villamil's practice.
The allegations in the court docu-
ments stem from the doctor's treat-
ment of three patients, including a
3-year-old, and inadequate records
and monitoring practices when pre-
scribing controlled substances.
A message left at Villamil's attor-
ney was not immediately returned
Wednesday.
He came under scrutiny in 2010
after state records indicated Villamil
wrote an average of 153 prescrip-
tions to adults and children every
day between 2007 and 2009. That
figure is nearly twice the number of
Florida's second highest prescriber.

County to pass along house sign costs


From staff reports

People -who engage in business
from home or who plan to develop
or change the way they use their
land will now have to pay for the
signs that must, by law, be posted on
their property alerting the public to
the activity.
In.the past, that cost has been ab-
sorbed by the Jackson County Com-
munity Development budget. But on
Tuesday, Jackson County commis-
sioners voted to shift that expense
onto the business or person who
owns the property upon which the
signs will be posted.
The 11-inch by 17-inch home-oc-
cupation signs cost. $10 each. The
2-foot by 3-foot signs for land use,
change or development cost $30
each. The Community Development
budget has already absorbed $900
worth of such purchases. In 2007
alone, the signs took a $444 bite out
of the department's miscellaneous
expense budget of $2,200. The sign


money will now be collected from
the submitting entity in an at-cost
pass-along at the time the applica-
tion for change is submitted.
The cost of the signs was deter-
mined when the county sought
quotes from three sign vendors
via telephone and email inquiries.
County staff listed the price of the
land-use signs as the quote received
from Sign Service and Installation
of Marianna. That company was se-
lected as the vendor after the county
reviewed quotes from that business
and two other companies which of-
fered the signs for roughly $8 more.
In other board action related to
vendor dealings, commissioners this
week selected a company to provide
the county's yearly supply of blades
for the local government's fleet df
road department motor graders,
and two companies were chosen to
provide the annual supply of culvert
pipe.
Thompson Tractor of Marian-
na won the blade supply job. The


company offered the next-lowest
bid offered, at $46.77 per blade for 7-
foot-long blades. Another company,
out of Kinston, Pa., had offered the
lowest bid at $44 for that size, but
county policy is to give local ven-
dors a preference if the prices they
offer are less than 3 percent higher
than a nonlocal vendor's bid. And
Thompson offered the lowest bid
for the 14-foot-long blades, at $87.57
for each. The county will most likely
use the longer blades in most cases
to outfit its equipment, according to
Road and Bridge Superintendent Al
Green.
The county also selected the low
bidders for culvert pipe. Gulf Atlan-
tic will provide corrugated culvert
pipe up to 42 inches in diameter, and
Ferguson Water Works will provide
corrugated pipe that is 42 inches
and larger, as well as all the polyure-
thane pipe the county needs. Gulf
Atlantic did not bid on the polyure-
thane pipes and its prices were high-
er than Ferguson on the larger pipe.

In Brief
New owl identified on
Indonesian island
JAKARTA, Indonesia
A new species of owl
believed to exist nowhere
else in the world has
been identified by ac-
cident on an Indonesian
island when researchers
in search of another bird
noticed its distinct song.
The Rinjani Scops owl
was first identified in
2003 and has since been
spotted only on Lombok
island, about 25 kilome-
ters (15 miles) from the
popular resort island of
Bali. The findings were
published Wednesday in
the online-journal PLOS
ONE.
The small owl, with
brown and white feath-
ers and big golden eyes,
was confused with a
similar-looking species for
more than a century. But
scientists from Sweden
and the U.S., who were
visiting the island doing
separate research on an-
other nocturnal bird, both
recorded the Rinjani Scops
owl's vocalizations. They
noticed that its whistled
note was entirely different
from other songs, includ-
ing that of the widespread
Moluccan Scops owl, or
Otus magicus.
Bomb targets Greek
far-right party office
ATHENS, Greece-A
small bomb has exploded
outside the local offices of
a Greek extreme right-
wing party in Piraeus, the
port of Athens, causing no
injury and minor damage.
It was the second attack
of its kind in two days tar-
geting the Golden Dawn
party, which rose from the
margins of Greek politics
to enter Parliament last
year.
Police said the device
detonated around 9 p.m.
local time (1900GMT)
SWednesday, damaging the
door of the unoccupied
seventh-floor office.
Nobody claimed respon-
sibility for the attack.
Also Wednesday, an an-
archist group calling itself
"Angry Brigade" claimed'
responsibility for a similar
attack a day ago in the city
of Larissa. No injuries were
reported in that attack.
UK police arrest 6 in
phone hacking probe
LONDON British
police investigating com-
Sputer hacking and privacy
offenses by the media
on Wednesday arrested
six people alleged to be
involved in intercepting
voice mails for the defunct
News of the World tabloid.
SAuthorities said the six
former journalists for the
tabloid were arrested in
a new line of inquiry to
the ongoing investiga-
tion in Operation Weet-
ing, which is one of three
investigations into press
wrongdoing.
Britain's power structure
has been rattled by allega-
tions that the now-closed
News of the World hacked
people's phones for sto-
ries. The allegations and
scandal have touched off
dozens of arrests. Police
say the new suspected
conspiracy is believed to
have taken place primarily
during 2005-2006.
Brazil: Company has
patent on iPhone brand
RIO DE JANEIRO
- Brazil's patent author-
ity has taken a bite out of
Apple with an announce-
ment Wednesday that the
iPhone name in Brazil
belongs to a local com-


pany called Gradiente SA,
not to the global computer
giant.
The official publica-
tion of the verdict doesn't
forbid Apple from using
the name in Brazil. It only
makes it clear the rights
belong to the Brazilian
company, said Marcelo
Chimento, spokesman
with the national patent
office.
Stopping misuse of the
name is beyond the pat-
ent office's purview, and
would have to be decided '
in court.

Pope celebrates last public Mass as pontiff


The Associated Press

VATICAN CITY Be-
ginning a long farewell
to his flock, a weary Pope
Benedict XVI celebrated
his final public Mass as
pontiff, presiding over
Ash Wednesday services
hours after a bittersweet
audience that produced
the extraordinary scene
of the leader of the world's
billion Catholics explain-
ing himself directly to the
faithful.
The mood inside St. Pe-
ter's Basilica was somber
during the Mass, as if the
weight of Benedict's de-
cision and the finality of
his pontificate had finally
registered with the thou-
sands present. The ba-
silica erupted in a rousing
standing ovation as Bene-
dict exited for the last time
as pope, bringing tears to
the eyes of some of those
closest to him.
"We wouldn't be sin-
cere, Your Holiness, if we
didn't tell you that there's
a veil of sadness on our
hearts this evening," Car-
dinal Tarcisio Bertone,


THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
Cardinal Angelo Comastri puts ash on Pope Benedict XVI's
head during the celebration of Ash Wednesday mass in St.
Peter's Basilica at the Vatican, Wednesday, Feb. 13.


Benedict's longtime depu-
ty, told the pope at the end
of the service, his voice
breaking.
"Thank you for
having given us the lu-
minous example of the
simple and humble-work-
er in the vineyard of the
Lord," Bertone said, quot-
ing Benedict's words when
he first appeared on the
loggia overlooking St. Pe-
ter's Square after he was
elected pope.
Smiling and clearly


moved, Benedict re-
sponded, "Grazie. Now let
us return to prayer" his
words bringing to an end
several minutes of thun-
dering applause. Then, in
a rare gesture and sign of
respect, the bishops re-
moved their mitres.
"Viva il papa!" the
crowd yelled as the pope
stepped off the altar, as-
sisted by two clergymen,
and departed St. Peter's
aboard a moving platform
to spare him the long walk


down the aisle.
Ash Wednesday marks
the start of Lent, the most
solemn season on the
church's liturgical calendar
that ends with Holy Week,
which commemorates
the death of Christ and
his resurrection on Easter
Sunday. By this Easter, on
March 31, the church will
likely have a new pope.
The. scene was fes-
tive earlier in the day,
when Benedict took the
extraordinary step of
speaking directly to his
flock about why he had
broken with 600 years of
tradition and decided to
retire on Feb. 28.
"As you know, I have
decided to renounce the
ministry that the Lord
gave to me on April 19,
2005," Benedict said, to
warm applause. "I did this
in full liberty for the good
of the church."
He thanked the faith-
ful for their prayers and
love, which he said he had
"physically felt in these
days that haven't been
easy for me." And he asked
them to "to continue to


pray for me, the church,
and the future pope."
Benedict looked tired
but serene as he basked in
a standing ovation when
he entered the packed hall
for his traditional Wednes-
day catechism lesson. His
speech was interrupted
repeatedly by applause,
and many in the audience
of thousands had tears in
their eyes.
A huge banner read-
ing "Grazie Santita"
("Thank you Your Holi-
ness") was strung up and a
chorus of Italian school-
children serenaded him
with one of his favor-
ite hymns in German
- a gesture that won over
the pope, who thanked
them for singing a
piece "particularly dear to
me.
He appeared wan and
spoke softly, but his eyes
twinkled at the welcome.
"H gave us- eight
wonderful years of his
words," said Ileana Sviben,
an Italian from the north-
ern city of Trieste. "He was
a wonderful theologian
and pastor."

on Wednesday admitted
for the first time that it

sons, and that he died
in prison more than two
years ago details that
shed new light on a case
that has strained relations
with its close ally Austra-
lia and raised questions
about its secretive Mossad
agency.
The admission con-
firmed key elements of
an Australian TV report
about the case, butalso
left unanswered major
questions about the case,
including the nian's
identity, why he was in-
carcerated, if he was a

said he was a Jewish-Aus-
tralian immigrant to Is-
rael who was working for
the Mossad when he was
placed in a maximum-
security prison fo.r an
unspecified crime in
2010. The report said he
died in December of
that year, apparently by
suicide.
Israel, which refused to
acknowledge the Austra-
lian report for nearly 24
hours, began lifting the
veil of secrecy on the case
on Wednesday.
Early in the day, it al-
lowed Israeli media to
report ion the Australian
news report. Then, late at
night, a court order lifted
parts of a series of gag or-

der, emailed to reporters.

confirmed that an Israeli
man who held dual citi-
zenship in an undisclosed
country died in custody in
2010.
Identifying the man only
as the Hebrew equivalent
of John Doe, the court
order said the prisoner's
family was notified im-
mediately after he was
detained. It said he was
imprisoned under a court
order, that the prisoner's
full rights were retained
and named three Israeli
lawyers who represented
hiim.
The court order said
that after the prisoner was
found dead in his cell, a
judge ordered an inves-


investigation concluded
that he committed suicide.
However, a judge has now
asked the state to check
for possible negligence.
In another curious wrin-
kle in the case, Israeli TV
reported that the prisoner,
identified by Australian
media as Ben Zygier, had
worked as a clerk in the
international business
department of one of
Israel's most prestigious
law firms, Herzog Fox
& Neeman. The firm is
partially owned by Israel's
Justice Minister, Yaakov
Neeman.

Neeman said he knew

EU ministers call for emergency meat testing


The Associated Press

BRUSSELS '- European
Union nations onWednes-
day called for more inten-
sive testing for a month to
try to contain the scandal
in which horsemeat was
sold as beef.
The emergency meet-
ing at EU headquarters
included nations most af-
fected by the horsemeat
scandal that has swept
through Europe, with mil-
lions of burgers and fro-
zen meals recalled across
the continent.
Ireland's Agriculture
Minister Simon Coveney
suggested the scandal
would likely spread fur-
ther as more countries test
beef.
Germany said Wednes-
day it had received a ship-
ment of tainted frozen-
meals and Norway pulled
products from its stores.
Ireland found horsemeat
in burgers last month after
routine testing.
"Once we got the posi-
tive test and the inves-
tigation was under way,
obviously other countries
followed suit," said Co-
veney, who chaired the
meeting. "As they tested
they found that the prob-
lem has been getting big-
ger and bigger."
The nations also pro-
posed that investigations
in Ireland, France, the
Netherlands and other
nations should now be
coordinated by the EU's
Europol law enforcement
agency.
"What was clear, was
the absolute unity of
purpose of the member
states to get to the bot-
tom of this," said Britain's
Environment Secretary
Owen Paterson. "We do
not know exactly what
has gone wrong.

exist in other EU nations
like France and Belgium.
Germany's agriculture
and consumer, protection
ministry said a shipment
of frozen lasagna con-
taining horsemeat was
delivered to at least
one trader in western
Germany.


Australian legisla-
tors demanded answers
Wednesday about the
suspicious death, and the
government ordered a re-
view of the case.
Australian Foreign Min-
ister Bob Carr said a review
would be conducted of his
department's handling of
the prisoner.
According to Australian
media, Zygier used the
name Ben Allen in his Aus-
tralian passport. He was
also known as Ben Alon.

But the Lady Seahawks
blew the game, open in
the third period, out-
scoring Cottondale 23-

through three quarters.
The onslaught con-,

the Lady Hornets were

Stacked SEC gets tougher with Texas A&M, Missouri


The Associated Press

The Southeastern Con-
ference has won three of
the past four NCAA base-
ball championships, so
' the league didn't need to
get any tougher.
It might have anyway.
The SEC adds Missouri
apd Texas A&M this sea-
son, two solid baseball
programs that increase the
depth of a league that has
no shortage of candidates
to go to the College World
Series. The season opens
Friday for all 14 teams,
with conference play be-
ginning in March.
ForVanderbilt coachTim
Corbin, the four weeks
of non-conference play
provide a short window
to make sure'his team is
ready for such a competi-
tive conference.
"This is the premier
league in the country, and
the truh is someone's got
to lose," Corbin said. "It's a
war of attrition. You've got
to keep yourself from fall-
ing over, keep your gloves
up. Everyone's good. Ev-
eryone's recruiting good
players. There's very little
difference between \the
14th team and the first
team."
The SEC's coaches picked


Arkansas to win the league
title. The Razorbacks have
one of the league's top
pitchers and a potential
No. 1 Major League Base-
ball draft pick in right-
hander Ryne Stanek Their
lineup will be anchored by
Dominic Ficociello, who.
hit .290 with six homers
and 41 RBIs last season.
Arkansas coach Dave
Van Horn knows that dur-
ing the 56-game regular
season, there's bound to
be some ups and downs.
"We're trying to calm
ourselves down a 'little
bit," Van Horn said. "We're'
ranked so high, that expec-
tations, you're supposed
to stay there all year. It's
going to be tough."
Vanderbilt was picked to
win the Eastern Division.
The Commodores strug-
gled early last season, but
rallied late to make the
NCAA tournament. Most
of the team returns, in-
cluding lineup mainstays
Mike Yastrzemski, Conrad
Gregor and Tony Kemp.
But as usual, most of the
league's teams have a re-
alistic shot of making it to
Omaha. Mississippi State,
South Carolina, LSU, Ken-
tucky, Mississippi and
Florida join the Razor-
backs and Commodores

in Baseball America's pre-
season top 25.
The Gamecocks won
back-to-back national ti-
tles in 2010 and 2011 and
lost in the national cham-
pionship series to Arizona
last season. New coach
Chad Holbrook takes over
for Ray Tanner, who left
the baseball program to
become the school's ath-
letic director.


There are some new
twists to the league this
season. The addition of
Texas A&M and Missouri
is widely viewed as a
positive, but there's now
a greater possibility that
scheduling quirks could
.affect the outcome of
the conference race. The
30-game schedule fea-
tures three games against
10 opponents, meaning


each team will miss three
others.
Mississippi State looks
as though it has one of the
toughest schedules, with a
weekend series against all
of the preseason favorites.
"It's true that because of
the schedule, somebody is
probably going to have a
big advantage over some-
body else," Bulldogs coach
John Cohen said. "But


truthfully, nobody knows
who is going to be the
best or worst team in our
league right now. I think
we'll see how it works
this year and then make
changes if needed. Our
league is evolving. That's
why we've pioneered in
every sport."
The SEC's postseason
tournament has also ex-
panded to include 12 of
the 14 teams. Mississippi
coach Mike Bianco said
part of the reason the
coaches voted for a larger
tournament was to help
offset the potential ineq-
uities of the regular-sea-
son schedule.
"Our league is so good
from top to bottom, we
thought it made sense to,
include more teams in the
conference tournament,
especially when you con-
sider the possible sched-
uling issues," Bianco said.
Newcomer Texas A&M
has a traditionally strong
program that's been to
the College World Series
three times in the past 20
years, including in 2011.
Missouri doesn't have
quite the same pedigree,
but has consistently made
the NCAA tournament un-
der 19th-year coach Tim
Jamieson.

over Shelton State have
gotten the Indians back on
track and back in the good
graces of their coach.
"We've kind of bought
in the last two or three
weeks," Indians coach Jeff
Johnson said Wednesday.
"The hitters have done a
better job with two strikes,
we're not striking out
as much, we're defend-
ing the plate better, and
we're pitching better. The
defense scares me a little
and there are a few things
that concern me, but we
just need to keep seeing
better pitchers and get our
minds where we're more
coachable and listen and
learn to defend the plate."
The Indians will get a
pair'of sizeable tests in
No. 6 San Jacinto and No.
14 Middle Georgia, two
teams that Johnson said
will give his group a good
idea of just how much
progress has been made. ,
"Middle Georgia was
probably the best team
I saw the whole fall," the
coach said. "They've got
a couple of really good
arms, some guys who can
get it up there around 94-
to-96 Miles Per Hour, and
they swing the bat very
well.
"I knowSanJac will come
in with a really good club
again. They're probably

lead the Lady Hornets, but
no other player was able to
score more,than six.
For the game, Cottondale
converted only 6-of-22
shots inside the paint, with
the length of the South
Walton frontcourt proving
troublesome for the small-
er Lady Hornets.
"We couldn't throw a
rock in the ocean," Pitt-
man said. "I thought we
played well defensively,
but offensively we were
pretty poor. We turned the
ball over and made some
bad passes, and their size
gave us fits. They've got
some big kids."
Still, the coach said she
was disappointed that her
team didn't give a better
showing, even if the odds
of pulling off the road up-
set weren't great to begin
with.
"I was hoping that if we
went out early that we
would go out with a little
more pride," Pittman said.
I"South Walton is a good


the most traditional JUCO
program in the country
over the years. They'll be a
great test for us. Both staffs
have very good arms. This
will be a really good test
for us. We've gotten a little .
better and made some
strides, but this will test us
more. It-should be a good
weekend for us."
Carlos Misell, Michael
Mader, Preston Johnson,
and Shane Crouse will
get the starting nods on
the mound for Chipola
this weekend, though
the Chipola coach said
he wasn't sure yet which
pitchers would start which
games.
Finding answers on the
mound is perhaps the
biggest key for any JUCO
team, and Jeff Johnson
said he's getting a better
feel for what he has on his
staff.
"I think we've got about
seven guys right now that
I feel comfortable about,"
he said. "That gives us
some more depth on the
mound. We're making
some strides there, but
we've got a lot of things
to work on to get better
at. We've got to get more
pitch-able and get bet-
ter command of the fast-
ball. We've got some good
arms; we've just got to
keep making strides and
keep facing people who
will punish us and make
us pay when we don't do
things the right way or put
the ball in the right spot."


team, but I don't feel like
they're 30 points better
than us. But in the playoffs
big momentum swings
can change the personality
of a team. We got caught
up in the momentum of
the game, the crowd got
involved, and our body
language changed."
Despite the loss, the sea-
son can be viewed as large-
ly a success, with the Lady
Hornets returning to the
postseason after atwo-year
absence thanks to knock-
ing off the district's No. 2
seed Sneads in the district
tournament semifinals.
It's a message that Pitt-
man said she delivered to
her team after the game.
"I told them that com-
pared to this past summer
and the development that
we had, no one expected
us to be in the position
we're in," she said. "It took
us a while to get back in
the playoffs, but we ac-
complished a lot this year.
Everybody made improve-
ments over the season. It
was a good group of kids
and a good season. I just
hate that it ended on a
sour note."

Kentucky's Noel out for season with torn ACL


The Associated Press

LEXINGTON, Ky. Ken-
tucky received the news it
dreaded Wednesday when
freshman forward Nerlens
Noel was declared out for
the season with a torn liga-
ment in his leff knee.
Noel tore his ACL on
Tuesday night when No. 25
Kentucky lost at Florida.
An MRI revealed the injury,
and the 6-foot-10 forward
will have surgery in the
next two or three weeks.
The projected recov-
ery period is six to eight
months.
Noel's injury deals a se-
rious postseason blow for
the defending national
champions, who had ap-
peared to be gaining some
footing after struggling
earlier this season while
trying to blend in four
freshmen. Leading the way
defensively for the Wild-
cats was Noel, who began

tle game won by Chipley

After Tuesday's game,
Chipley coach Heather
Hingson credited her
team's opportunistic de-
fense for the victory dver
Malone.
"I think our pressure
enabled us to get ahead.
We were able to put.some
pressure on their guards
and get turnovers and
turn them into baskets
at the other end," the

The rookie took a posi-
tive approach to the diag-
nosis, posting on Twitter,
"Minor setback for a MA-
JOR comeback I love you
all and can't thank y'all
enough for the prayers."
Noel was hurt with 8
minutes left in the Wild-
cats' 69-52 loss to the sev-
enth-ranked Gators. He
ran into the basket sup-
port after blocking a layup
from behind. Noel landed
awkwardly, dropped to the
floor and started scream-
ing while clutching his
'knee.
Noel had eight points, six
rebounds and three blocks
before the injury.
"I've been coaching for
22 years and this is the first
injury we've had of this
kind during the season,
which makes it even more
devastating," Kentucky
coach John Calipari said in
a statement.

by Coleman and Belser

to within single digits at

really positive, and I loved
his attitude. The way he is
already dealing with this
injury lets me know that
he is going to come back
stronger than ever. ... Ob-
viously this is not a career-
ending injury and it's one
that athletes bounce back
from all the time."
The question is if Ken-
tucky (17-7, 8-3 South-
eastern Conference) can
bounce back from the dev-
astating loss.
With Noel out, 7-footer
Willie Cauley-Stein now
must man the post for
Kentucky after spending
most of the season as No-
el's backup.
Cauley-Stein missed four
games last month after
having a procedure on his
left knee, an absence that
meant even more minutes
for Noel.

margin to 44-39 less than
a minute into the final
period, but answers by
Belser and Sorey got Chi-
pley back up 11.
A triple by Shalonda
Curl with 48.2 seconds
left cut the margin to six
at 53-47, but Coleman
answered with a bucket
at the other end for Chi-
pley, and after an empty
Malone possession, Pas-
cal came 'out with the
ball and passed up ahead
to Belser for a layup to
provide the exclamation
point on the win with 10
seconds to play.


chance to display an array
of skills. Besides his shot-
blocking prowess, Noel
was averaging 10.6 points,
9.5 rebounds and 2.1 steals
per game, with the latter
two statistics both ranking
26th nationally.
He entered the game
with three consecutive
double-doubles and on a
four-week run as the con-
ference's top freshman. In
his previous. five. games,
Noel had blocked 26 shots.
Projected as an NBA lot-
tery pick by some scouting
services if he were to leave
after the season, Noel's
draft stock seemed unaf-
fected by his injury.
Several blogs still consid-
er him a top-five selection,
with others projecting him
as a,first-rounder.
While Kentucky has
lacked a bona fide team
leader, there was no doubt
that the Wildcats seemed
to feed off of Noel's in-
tensity and athleticism.


Malone's season ends
with a record of 21-7, and
coach Byron Williams
said. that' while he was
disappointed that the
Lady Tigers didn't go fur-
ther, he was happy with
the season on the whole.
"We had a great season.
We had some fun and the
girls got closer, put some
stuff aside, and had no
major issues," he said.
"They put a lot of energy
and effort into it. It sucks
to lose, but everybody
can't win it. You just have
to stay in the gym and
keep getting better and
try again next season."

@2013 HEAT SURGE 8000 FREEDOM AVE., N. CANTON OH 44720


Man behind Amish Fireplace gives public $99 deal

Consumers rush to get in on rock bottom deal for the World Famous miracle heater

as Amish craftsmen struggle to keep up, household limit of 2 imposed


NATIONWIDE It's a deal
too good to pass up.
That's because the man
*behind the Amish Fireplace and
founder of Heat Surge is giving
away brand new World Famous
Miracle Heaters for just $99 to
the general public beginnirig at
8:30am this morning.
And with many months of
freezing cold weather yet to
come and high heat bills right
around the corner, the phone
lines are ringing off the hook.
When I got wind that all
this was ending in just 2 days,
I left my office at Heat Surge
and headed straight to Amish
country to set up an interview
with long time Amish crafts-
man Jonas Miller so I could be
the first to get the story out to
newspaper readers everywhere.
Here's my interview with the
soft spoken, hard working man
who reminds me of good old hon-
est Abe and I got right to the
bottom line.
QUESTION: I'm confirming
that the World Famous Miracle
Heater is now just "99, right?
ANSWER: Yes ma'am, it's
just ,99.
QUESTION: That's unbeliev-
able. Do you know how much
people have paid for the Miracle
Heater and handmade Amish
fireplace mantle in the past?
ANSWER: Lots and lots
of people have paid $249.00
just for the Miracle Heater
and another $298.00 for the
Amish mantle. That's a total
of $547.00 and they're glad to
pay it because theyknow it's
handmade Amish quality that
lasts forever and Heat Surge
pays me to make sure everyone
knows it.
QUESTION: Then why are
the Miracle Heaters being given
away for just $99 now?
ANSWER: There's a bunch of
good people out there that have
always wanted to slash their
heat bills and stay warm with
one of our fireplaces, but just
couldn't afford one. Folks liv-
ing on fixed incomes, those liv-
ing pay check to pay check and
retired folks who would have so
much more money if they didn't
have to budget for such high
heat bills every month. That's
why the man behind the Amish
fireplace said to give the heat-
ers away for just $99 for the next
2 days. Plus give the handmade
Amish fireplace mantles away
for half price so everyone can
get them.
QUESTION: Now I know why
so many people are calling to
get the Miracle Heater. Are the
craftsmen struggling to keep
up?
ANSWER: Yes ma'am. Now
that winter is really starting to
set in folks want to save money.
Everyone hates paying high
heat bills that start showing up
Sin January and don't stdp until
after May. I looked in one of the
barns this morning and I'll tell
ya what, they're flying out the
door like apple butter pies. The
boys are really struggling to


* CONSUMERS JUMP ON DEAL: "We're gonna keep our word and give the Miracle Heaters away for just $99, but nearly everyone wants
to have a handmade Amish mantle built for them, so please tell folks not to take any more than two because the boys are really struggling to
keep up now that they're just one hundred forty-nine dollars more," said long-time Amish craftsman, Jonas Miller. Barns that were stacked
from floor to ceiling just days ago-are now going empty because everyone hates paying high heat bills. That's why smart consumers are
rushing to beat the 2 day deadline for this rock bottom deal that's putting a real strain on the Amish craftsmen.


keep up. That's why I need you
to tell folks I'm really sorry, but
we just can't let them have any
more than two as part of this
advertising announcement.
QUESTION: How much
money are people saving with
these Miracle Heaters?
ANSWER: Thousands of let-
ters pour in from folks all across
the country thanking us at Heat
Surge for all the money they're
saving on their heat bills with
this Amish fireplace. It works
because the Miracle Heater cre-
ates perfect zone heating giv-
ing you 74 of bone-soothing
room heat even when the home
thermostat is turned down to


59. So everyone will save money
and no one will ever be cold
again.
QUESTION: I read an article
that says these Miracle Heaters
are a top rated safety pick. Have
you seen it too?
ANSWER: Oh yes. Someone
. showed me that article and we're
very proud of-it. In fact, when a
fire chief tells people with chil-
dren and pets to get it, you know
it's safe. It has the World Famous
safe to the touch Fireless Flame'

Bonds seeks dismissal of felony conviction


The Associated Press

SAN FRANCISCO A
lawyer for Barry Bonds
urged a federal appeals
court on Wednesday to
toss out the slugger's ob-
struction of justice con-
viction, saying a rambling
answer he gave while tes-
tifying before a grand jury
was not a crime.
Appellate specialist Den-
nis Riordan argued that
Bonds was not formally
or specifically charged
with the felony that he was
convicted of committing.
A federal jury in April 2011
found baseball's all-time
home runs leader guilty
of obstruction for saying
he was a "celebrity child"
when asked about inject-
ing steroids.
Prosecutors asked Bonds
during his December 2003
grand jury appearance
whether Greg Anderson,
his personal trainer, ever
gave him "anything that
required a syringe to inject
yourself with?"
Bonds referred to his fa-

because of my father's sit-
uation, you see ..."
That particular exchange
wasn't included in the
indictment originally re-
leased in November 2007.
The omission is "the dag-
ger in the heart of this con-
viction," Riordan argued.
Further, Riordan said
that Bonds ultimately an-
swered the question when
put to him again and de-
nied receiving any sub-
stance to inject.
Judge Michael Daly
Hawkins wondered aloud
if Bonds' direct denial un-
dercut the government's
argument that Bonds in-
tentionally misled the


grand jury.
SAssistant U.S. Attorney
Merry Jean Chan coun-
tered that the denial was a
lie because Bonds' former
personal assistant, Cathy
Hoskins, testified that she
witnessed Anderson inject
Bonds. Chan said Bonds'
denial and his other ram-
bling answers to the same
question throughout his
grand jury appearance
added up to obstruction.
"He answered the ques-
tion falsely each time," she
said.
Bonds and his legal team
are asking a three-judge
panel of the U.S. 9th Cir-
cuit Court of Appeals to


dismiss the lone felony
conviction stemming
from Bonds' 2/2 hours of
testimony in December
2003 before a grand jury
investigating performance
enhancing drug use and
sales among elite athletes.
Bonds, who was rejected
by voters last month in his
first year of eligibility for
the Hall of Fame, wasn't re-
quired to attend Wednes-
day's highly technical
hearing, though Riordan
said his client expressed a
desired to watch the pro-
ceedings in person.
Riordan said outside
court that he advised
Bonds to watch from afar


rather than personally at-
tending the 35-minute ses-
sion San Francisco. A local
television station was giv-
en permission to show the
hearing live and streamed
at least a couple of seg-
ments on the Internet.
"His presence would
have been a distraction,"
Riordan said.
Legal experts who have
followed the case closely
since his grand jury ap-
pearance -in December
2003 are divided over
Bonds' chances before
Daly Hawkins and Judges
Mary Schroeder and Mary
Murguia, each of whom
was appointed by a differ-
ent Democrat president
and all of whom are based
in Phoenix, home of San
Francisco's division rival
Diamondbacks and about
a 20-minute drive from the
Giants' Scottsdale spring
training facility.
One set of analysts ar-
gue that appellate courts
are reluctant to overturn
jury verdicts absent an
overwhelmingly obvious
mistake. They say that
U.S. District Judge Su-
san Illston, who ran the
trial,, is a respected jurist
who has few of her cases
overturned.
"There is a definite over-
riding respect of a jury's
verdict," said Howard
Wasserman, a Florida In-
ternational University law
professor. "Typically, it's


pretty hard to get a jury's
verdict reversed."
On the other hand, there
are those lawyers who ar-
gue that Bonds stands a
good chance to clear his
name.
"The government's big-
gest hurdle is that testimo-
ny obstruction cases are
usually based on blatant,
undeniable lies to ques-
tions at the heart of an in-
vestigation," said William
Keane, a San Francisco
criminal defense attorney.
"Here the prosecution
limps in with only a single
rambling, unresponsive,
unimportant answer that
is literally true."
Regardless of the out-
come, University of New
Hampshire law professor
Michael McCann con-
tends that the case was ul-
timately a loss of the U.S.
Department of Justice. In
a case that put a superstar
athlete at the defendant's
table, the jury deadlocked
on three charges of mak-
ing false statements
"The main thrust of the
government's original case
was that he lied wheh he
denied taking steroids,"
said McCann, who also
edits the popular Sports
Law Blog. "That's not what
he was convicted of. Ob-
struction was not the main
charge."
If Bonds' conviction is
upheld, he will have to
serve 30 days house arrest.


Olympics




Jacques Rogge to meet with wrestling leader


The Associated Press

LAUSANNE, Switzer-
land Facing a wave of
criticism from around
the world, IOC President
Jacques Rogge will meet
with the head of wres-
tling's governing .body to
discuss ways the sport
can fight to save its place
in the Olympics.
The IOC executive board
dropped wrestling from
the program of the 2020
Games on Tuesday, a de-
cision which' brought a
sharp backlash from wres-
tling organizations and
national Olympic bodies
around the world in-
cluding the United States,
Russia and Iran..
The move must still be
ratified by the full Inter-
national Olympic Com-
mittee in September, giv-
ing wrestling time to try
to overturn a decision
against a sport which
dates back to the ancient
Olympics and has been
featured since the inau-
gural modern games in
1896.
Rogge said Wednesday
he has been contacted
by Raphael Martinetti,
the Swiss president of
international wrestling
federation.FILA, ard was
encouraged by the sport's
resolve to make changes
and fight for its place.
"We agreed we would
meet at the first opportu-
nity to have discussions,"
Rogge said at a news con-
ference at the close of a
two-day board meeting.
"I should say FILA reacted
well to this disheartening
news for them.
"They vowed to adapt
the sport and vowed to
fight to be eventually in-
cluded in the 2020 slot."
Wrestling, which re-
mains on the program
for the 2016 Olympics in
Rio de Janeiro, still has a
chance to stay on the list
for 2020 if it manages to
respond decisively to the
wakeup call and convince
the IOC to reverse course.
"This is not the end of
the day. The door is not
closed," IOC Vice Presi-
dent Thomas Bach of Ger-
many said. "It's good to see
the reaction of FILA to say,
'OK we have understood,


THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
International Olympic Committee, IOC, President Jacques Rogge gestures during a press
conference after the last day of the executive board's meeting, in Lausanne, Switzerland.


we have to do something
and we will present a plan
for the future of wrestling.'
That is the right attitude."
Wrestling now joins sev-
en other sports vying for
one opening on the 2020
program: a combined bid
from baseball and soft-
ball, karate, squash, roller
sports, sport climbing,
wakeboarding and the
martial art of wushu.
The IOC executive board
will meet in May in St. Pe-
tersburg, Russia, to decide
which sport or sports to
propose for 2020 inclu-
sion. The final vote will be
made at the IOC general
assembly in September in
Buenos Aires, Argentina.
"The vote of yesterday
is not an elimination of
wrestling from the Olym-
pic Games," Rogge said.
"Wrestling will partici-
pate in the games in Rio
de Janeiro. To the athletes
who train now, I say, 'Con-
tinue training for your
participation in Rio. Your
federation is working for
the inclusion in the 2020
Games.'"
Rogge was asked wheth-
er Tuesday's decision
marked an end to wres-
tling's Olympic hopes.
"I cannot look into a
crystal ball into the fu-
ture," he said. "We have
established a fair process
by which the sport that
would not be included in
the core has a chance to
compete with the seven


other sports for the slot on
the 2020 Games."
Rogge said he was fully
aware of the strength of
criticism leveled at the
IOC for the move.
"We knew even before
the decision was taken
whatever sport would not
be included in the core
program would lead to
criticism from the sup-
porters of that sport," he


U.S. and Russia were also
unlikely allies in the save-
wrestling campaign.
Alexander Zhukov, head
of the Russian Olympic
Committee, said he would
write to Rogge and "use
all of our strength to per-
suade the IOC not to ex-
clude wrestling from the
Olympic program."
Wrestling has been
one of Russia's strongest
sports: Soviet and Rus-
sian wrestlers have won
77 gold medals.
In Tehran, Iranian wres-
tler Ali Reza Dabir, a gold
medalist in 2000 Syd-
ney Games, called ,wres-
tling "the identity" of


the Olympics.
"Do we destroy our his-
torical sites which are
symbols of humanity?" he
told The Associated Press.
"No. Then, why should we
destroy wrestling?"
The Wrestling Federa-
tion of India said it would
do all that it can to re-
verse the decision, and
the Olympic committee in
Greece the birthplace
of the ancient and mod-
ern games condemned
"a decision that is clearly
in total opposition to the
history of the Olympic
Games and of sports in
general."
On Tuesday, U.S. Olym-
pic Committee CEO Scott
Blackmun questioned the
IOC decision "given the
history and tradition of
wrestling, and its popu-
larity and universality."
There are potential sce-
narios that would work in
wrestling's favor.
IOC officials said it's pos-
sible the executive board
could decide in May to put
three sports forward for
consideration, including
wrestling. Then it would
be up to the assembly to
approve wrestling or not.
If the board decides
to keep wrestling off the


list, the IOC assembly
- which has resisted past
attempts by the board to
impose changes to the
sports program could
reject the proposed list of
25 sports altogether. 'That
would mean the current
26 sports, including wres-
tling, would stay and the
whole process would go
back to square one.
Modern 'pentathlon
a five-sport discipline
dating back to the 1912
Games had been widely
expected to face removal
from the program but lob-
bied successfully to save
its status.
IOC member Richard
Carrion of Puerto Rico,
who served on the ex-
ecutive board for eight
years, said such decisions
are inevitably swayed by
politics.
"Some people are better
at lobbying than others,"
he told the AP.
"There is a political di-
mension to this. There are
people who have connec-
tions, who have this and
that. We may like it or not,
but in a multi-national
organization like this de-
cisions get made in ways
that are not completely
logical."

Dear Readers: Happy Valentine's Day to
one and all, along with our special good
wishes to the veterans in VA hospitals
around the country. And our particular
thanks to those readers who.have taken
the time to send valentines, visit the vets
and volunteer at VA facilities. Bless each
and every one of you.
Dear Annie: My older sister and I are
both in our late 40s. After years of putting
up with "Mary's" nasty, critical comments
and.her tantrums when she doesn't get
her way, I am ready to cut all ties. The only
problem is, Mary still has possession of a
number of family photographs and jew-
elry that once belonged to our mother.
After our father passed away, we put all
of the family stuff in storage. About a year
later, Mary bought a condo in another city,
packed everything up and took it with her.
She never asked whether I wanted any of
it or whether I minded that she took the
contents of the storage locker. I had to


In this deal, how should South play in four spades
after West leads the heart king?
In Standard American, the auction is straightfor-
ward. If you use two-over-one game-force, North
would rebid three spades, and South, with a mini-
mum opening, would sign off in game.
Declarer has four potential losers: one diamond
and three clubs. He has only nine top tricks: six
spades, one heart and two diamonds. South can
hope that East has the club ace, or try to establish
dummy's diamond suit. But the actual layout is
the one that South should fear. If he takes the first
trick, draws trumps and plays on diamonds, East
will win a trick and can shift to the club queen.
Then, as long as neither defender tries to cash a
heart trick, declarer will lose one diamond and
three clubs.
What is the secret?
South must keep East off the lead. And the way to
do that is not to win the first trick; let West take it.
Suppose he continues with another heart.
Declarer wins with dummy's ace and discards
a diamond from his hand. Then he plays a trump
to his ace before attacking diamonds. South takes
dummy's two winners, ruffs a diamond high, and
(when they split 3-2) draws trumps ending on the
board. Finally, declarer cashes dummy's remain-
ing two diamonds, throwing club losers from his
hand.
In this way, South collects an overtrick, not an
undertrick.

20) There is a good pos-
sibility that you will collect
payment on an old loan
that you had completely
written off.
ARIES (March 21-April
19) Challenging condi-
tions are more likely to
stimulate your positive

some new tactics that you
could put to good use.
CANCER (June 21-July 22)
- Resistance you are fac-
ing on a major project can
be alleviated if you just
make a few tweaks.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)
- Be sure that what you
do at work also produces
benefits for your co-work-
ers. They, in turn, will be
more responsive to your
needs and requests.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
-Work on an endeavor

to prime the pump.


fly to her city, rent a car and a trailer, and
then go through everything, dividing up
most of the estate.
Because I was living in a small apart-
ment, we agreed that Mary would take
care of the family albums until I got my
own place. Fifteen years later, she still has
them and ignores all requests to make
copies. I have neither the time nor the
money to visit her again, and I'm fed up
with her delays and excuses. I can't afford
to take her to court, but how can I get her
to share without resorting to legal mea-
sures? Those pictures mean a lot to me.
FED UP
Dear Fed Up: Of course Mary should
share these things with you, but she ap-
parently has no intention of cooperating
voluntarily. You will either have to find a
way to visit her and go through the pho-
tographs and jewelry, or take her to court.
Visiting is probably cheaper, so start
saving your money.

Keselowski was thrust

with his well-timed tweets
and he rode the wave all
the way to his first Sprint
Cup title. The win over
five-time champion Jim-

Roger Penske his first title

elite tandem.

the year, but insist their
relationship won't affect'
how they race each other
on the track.
"Obviously, we've been
racing together for a cou-
ple years now, him and I
have always gotten along,
we've always had a lot of
respect for each other on
the track, there's never
been an issue out there,"
she said. "I always say I'll
race people how they race
me until they do some-
thing to make me change
my mind. I don't andici-
pate that changing at all,

The Roush organization
will also receive attention
as fans watch and to see if
Carl Edwards can rebound
from last year's slump. Af-
ter losing the champion-
ship to Tony Stewart on a
tie-breaker, Edwards went
through a winless 2012
season and failed to make
the Chase.
And, four-time cham-
pion Jeff Gordon will be
starting fresh after his con-
troversial close to 2012.
He intentionally wrecked
Clint Bowyer in Phoenix,
triggering a garage-area
melee between their crews.
While.many thought Gor-


don should have been
suspended, he was fined
$100,000 and raced in the
season finale, which he
won.
The tension lingered be-
tween Bowyer and Gordon
into the offseason.
"Listen, I'm not here to
make friends," Gordon
said. "I like his friend-
ship. It can stay this way.
But we have to race each
other. I know what this all
came about from and he
might not agree and I'm
sure we're going to dis-
agree about a lot of things
and we'll go race ... and see
what happens."
