Educators chosen to replace late teacher


BYANGIE COOK
acook@jcfloridan.com

At Tuesday's meeting of
the Jackson County School
Board, the first since
the death of Marianna
High School teacher
John Summers, .replace-


ments were named to take


over the late
educator's
classes
for the re-
mainder of
the school
year.
S u p e r -


intendent Steve Benton
announced that, follow-
ing discussions with MHS
Principal Sarieta Russ,
.a decision was made to
bring Kristin Hamilton
in to teach the bulk of
Summers' classes. Chris-
tie Shelfer will lead his


advanced placement
history students.
Hamilton, Benton said, is
set to start tomorrow. She
moves to MHS from Jack-
son Alternative School,
where her vacated position
will be absorbed.
A slight schedule


rearrangement for Shelfer,
already a teacher at MHS,
will accommodate the
change.
Summers, who had
worked at MHS since 1984,
taught social studies, Latin
and AP American history.
He died Sunday.

hit-and-run

accidents

on the rise
Staff Report

The Florida Highway
Patrol says the incidence
of hit-and-run accidents
is on the rise in the state,
and the agency is part-
nering with the Florida
Department of Trans-
portation and local law
enforcement agencies
to combat the trend its
troopers have been see-
ing for the last two years.
Last year, there were
almost 70,000 hit-and-
run crashes in Florida,
according to the FHP. Ac-
cording to FHP records,
the number of fatal hit-
and-run crashes rose
from 162 to 168 between
2011 and 2012. Three of
every five traffic fatali-
ties of 2012 were pedes-
trians who were struck
in crashes involving hit-
and-run drivers.
The FHP is offering tips
to help drivers and wit-
nesses turn the tide.
After a crash, officials
advise, take the follow-
ing steps: Call law en-
forcement; stay calm; get
all vehicle, witness and
driver information pos-
sible under the given cir-
cumstances; sketch the
scene showing the crash
location; and help the
injured.
Drivers involved in
crashes are obligated to
immediately stop and
stay at the scene, ex-
change information and
help the injured, FHP
says.
Leaving the scene of a
fatal crash is a first-de-
gree felony and carries a
possible penalty, of up to
30 years in prison, as well
as a possible fine of up to
$10,000.
Leaving the scene in-
volving injuries is a third-
degree felony and carries
a potential penalty of
up to five years in pris-
on and a fine of up to
$5,000.

A shameful




way to treat




our vets

D isgraceful. Shameful. An embarrassment.
Those are the best words to describe the
ordeal Korean War veteran James Gunn endured
to get the Department of Veterans Affairs to listen to his
appeal for benefits.
It took more than five years and a front-page story
by Sun Sentinel reporter Ben Wolford for the 81-year-
old Marine Corps veteran and Coral Springs resident tol
get his appeal heard as he seeks benefits for debilitating
frostbite wounds.
Gunn won't know for weeks whether an appeals judge
will grant his claim for a pension, but at least he finally
got a chance to be heard. Count him among the almost
250,000 veterans waiting for news about their benefits
appeals.
What a way to treat our veterans.
Gunn is wheelchair-bound and in constant pain, a
reminder of the Battle of Chosin Reservoir in the winter
of 1950. Fighting through sub-zero cold, the 12,000 sur-
vivors are called the Chosin Few and the Frozen Chosin.
Gunn applied for two benefits: Aid and Attendance,
which would provide more than $1,000 a month, and a
mobility stipend. He was denied both in 2007, and ap-
pealed the decision.
After five years of more paperwork, more frustration
and more deterioration of his health, his appeal was
finally heard.
Who knows how much longer it would have taken
if his plight hadn't made it to the front page of the
newspaper? Unfortunately, few veterans entitled toVA
benefits can get that kind of exposure.
Florida veterans wait nearly 10 months on average
for the VA to respond to their claims, although veterans
advocates say the wait time is often longer than that.
And appeals can take several years.
Don't wholly blame the VA for the slog. The depart-
ment is chronically understaffed and backlogged. The
situation only figures to get worse as thousands of
.veterans return home from Afghanistan.
"(Decision review officers) are good people, they
know the law, but there's just no way they can handle
the caseload," says Matthew Hill, an Orlando attorney
on the board of the National Organization of Veterans'
Advocates.
Blame the folks we send to Washington, who talk
about "supporting the troops" when the cameras are
on, but obviously don't do enough to adequately fund
theVA to help the troops who need it the most.
TheVA has a $127 billion budget, but more funds are
certainly needed to increase staffing and reduce the
huge case backlog.
Supporting the troops particularly those who come
home with a variety of disabilities after fighting for our
freedoms should be a priority, not just a bumper-
sticker slogan.
If James Gunn's case helps bring more attention to the
problem and gets results, then maybe the five-year wait
he has endured wasn't totally in vain.

Rubio's rebuttal was a disaster


f Marco Rubio is the savior of
the Republican Party, members
of the GOP should start looking
for their lifeboats.
The performance by Florida's
junior senator following President
Barack Obama's State of the Union
on Tuesday was an epic failure.
Republicans were betting the party
on his success.
Sadly, success was easily ob-
tainable. All Rubio had to do was
say something new. Tell women,
minorities and young people what
the GOP has to offer that Demo-
crats don't. That is, after all, the
reason Republicans picked the
young, handsome, Hispanic sena-
tor to deliver the State of the Union
Republican response.
He's supposed to help them wid-
en their tent by enticing the groups
the GOP failed to win in the last two
national elections. Instead, Rubio
gave them the same tired lines that
Mitt Romney wore out during his
failed presidential campaign.
And to make matters worse, he
delivered those lines sweaty and
nervously.
Author Terry McMillan tweeted,
"He is not ready for prime time."
Rubio is normally a good orator.
But then he's usually speaking to
a friendly audience. Perhaps our
expectations of him on the na-
tional stage were too high. The GOP,
though, shares the blame. Where
were the bold ideas? The unveil-
ing of the new GOP brand? The
party certainly didn't give its new
anointed one much to work with.
"Instead of wasting more tax-


payer money on so-called 'clean
energy' companies like Solyndra,"
Rubio said, "let's open up more
federal lands for
safe and responsible
exploration."
Drill, baby, drill
and Solyndra. Really?
As usual Rubio
Rhonda touted the values
Swan of a "free econo-
my" and limited
government.
"This idea that our problems
were caused by a government'that
was too small it's just not true,"
he said. "In fact, a major cause of
our recent downturn was a housing
crisis created by reckless govern-
ment policies."
Right. Wall Street and its credit
default swaps had nothing to do
with it.
And it wouldn't be a Republican
speech without the obligatory at-
tack on the Affordable Care Act.
"Obamacare created expensive
requirements for companies...now
many of these businesses aren't
hiring," Rubio said. "Not only that,
they're being forced to lay people
off and switch from full-time em-
ployees to part-time workers."
They aren't being forced. In fact,
the owner of Olive Garden and Red
Lobster decided not to bump any
of its full-time workers to part-time
after announcing they would do so
to limit health care costs resulted in
a PR nightmare that affected their
bottom line. They put profits over
people and it cost them,
The GOP has put party over


people and it's cost them, too.
Rubio had a chance to tell Ameri-
cans how that was going to change.
But he only gave us talking points.
For his part, the president could
have put a best-hits recording of his
campaign speeches on the podium,
hit play and left the room. It was
d6jA vu for most of his hourlong
speech except for the parts about
increasing the minimum wage to
$9 an hour, working with states on
universal preschool programs and
gun control. But he's already got the
office that Republicans want. The
GOP can't afford to put us to sleep.
It says something when an
awkward and desperate lunge for a
water bottle is the most memorable
moment of the biggest political
speech of your life.
A Broward County Republi-
can who takes issue with almost
everything I write about her party
called me the day after the State of
the Union address to tell me that
Rubio's speech had doomed the
GOP.
"It's through. It's over for Republi-
cans," she said. "Republicans don't
have a message. They're not going
to make it."
She's given to hyperbole but she
no doubt expresses the frustra-
tion that many conservatives must
be feeling. "I'm not going to vote
Republican next time. I might stay
home," she said. "When they do
this kind of dumb stuff, we either
stay home or do protest votes in the
other party."
So much for the idea that one
man could right this sinking ship.


Florida's prison privatization isn't paradise


In his fiscal year 2014 budget,
Gov. Rick Scott proposes to
eliminate 2,355 jobs by priva-
tizing health services for state
prisoners. Privatization of prisons
is a national fad among Republican
governors and legislatures. States
unload thousands of employees
and their pensions and the private
companies squeeze the inmates
and their staff to make a profit.
The governor isn't waiting for
state lawmakers to make this move
to privatization. In January, the
state's Department of Corrections
signed a $48 million annual con-
tract with Wexford Health Sources
to outsource medical care to more
than 15,000 inmates in South
Florida.
A month earlier, Corizon Health
Inc.'s five-year, $230 million con-
tract to provide services for inmates
in central and northern Florida
prisons was blocked when a judge
ruled the state entered.into the deal
illegally.
Both companies have battled


lawsuits in federal and state courts
and have been fined in states where
&the for-profit com-
panies run health
services for prison
systems.
In Escambia Coun-
ty, we have seen how
Rick for-profit companies
Outzen can botch health
services for inmates.
In 2005, Robert
Boggon suffered a mental episode
in a Dollar Tree store, which landed
him in the Escambia County Jail.
Despite at one point rocking on
the floor of his cell and urinating
on himself and displaying other
odd behaviors, the 65-year-old
trucker never received a psychiat-
ric evaluation during the 11 days
he spent in the jail. He was only
given the minimum medication to
calm him down, according to court
documents.
On Aug. 29, 2005, Boggon was
found dead in his cell in the jail
infirmary, naked, strapped to an


emergency restraint chair with a
towel wrapped around his head.
The medical examiner ruled his
death a homicide, but placed the
blame on no one.
Prison Health Services managed
the infirmary at the Escambia
County Jail. In 2005, the for-profit
company provided health services
for about one in every 10 people
behind bars in this country.
Prison Health Services has
evolved over the past six years,
through several mergers and reor-
ganizations, and is now a subsid-
iary of Corizon. The Corizon CEO
is Rich Hallworth, who was presi-
dent and CEO of PHS Correctional
Healthcare. The company name
changes but the leadership stays
the same.
So when I think of privatizing
prison health care, I visualize Rob-
ert Boggon naked, strapped to a
chair, alone and not realizing dur-
ing his last few hours alive where he
was. Was the ballyhooed savings of
privatization worth his life?


Letters to the Editor


Courthouse is looking better
For years many people have
criticized the look of the Jackson
County Courthouse, and they were
right: It did look bad. But now that
it's been redone on the outside
with what money was available
- though not enough for a com-
plete overhaul the courthouse
looks so much better. The flat roof
remains a characteristic that was
the subject of much criticism but
because of additional architectural
features on the roof it looks quite
good now. Thanks to each person
who had a part in beautifying our
courthouse.
ANNE SPENCER

Editor's note: The author of the letter below


cited the Association of Mature American Citi-
zens as his source for the numbers presented.

Government spending
numbers don't lie
I think most folks are like me:
the U.S. debt, its budget, and how
much tax the U.S. expects to collect
are all larger than I can understand.
I got these numbers from a reliable
source as if it were a family budget.
I could understand these num-
bers much better. The numbers are:
n Annual family income: $21,700
a Money the family spent:
$38,200
) New debt on the credit card:
$16,500
) Outstanding balance on the
credit card: $165,710
) Total budget cuts so far: $385


If you want to understand what
our U.S. Government is spending,
just add eight zeros to the family
spending plan and you've got just
how big a pile of money has been
or will be spent and how much
more money we have to borrow
from China just this year. All we
have cut in spending is $385 and
the U.S. family owes a total of
$165,710 on our imaginary credit
card. Wow.
Folks, we've got to do something
and fast about this. It does not
matter who you voted for, please
be in touch with Congress to stop
the spending. We do not have the
money.
Thank you,

Troop 170 Boy Scouts attend Scout Master conference


Special to the Floridan

Eagle Scout Hunter Hut-
ton, Life Scout Liam Mc-
Donald and Star Scout
Calen Sims of Troop 170
recently participated in a
Scout Master conference,
a Board of Review and d
Court of Honor.
The meeting began with
each of the Boy Scouts
participating in a Scout
Master's conference with
Scout Master, Steve Hut-
ton. A Scout Master's con-
ference is held to help the
scout to reflect upon his
scouting adventure so that
he can recognize his sense
of accomplishment and set
goals for future advance-
ment. It also helps to pro-
vide the scouts with a more
focused path through the
scouting program to the
ultimate goal of the high-
est rank of Eagle Scout.
After the Scout Master's
conference, Star Scout
Calen Sims and Eagle
Scout Hunter Hutton par-
ticipated in a Board of Re-
view. The Board of Review
is not an examination, and
the board does not retest
the candidate of the re-
quirements accomplished.
The board determines the
Scout's attitude and his ac-
ceptance of scouting pro-
grams and redefines the
scout's goals.
A discussion of the Scout
Oath a'd Scout Law is
performed in the review,
to make sure that the
candidate recognizes and
understands the value

Review, the board deter-
mines if a scout has met
the requirements of the

and the scout law to ad-
vance to the next rank.

view, the Court of Honor
was conducted. All three

for their hard work and

few months. Star Scout
Calen Sims advanced to
the Life Rank, which is the
last rank before achiev-
ing the Eagle Scout Rank.
Life Scout Calen Sims was
also awarded his Personal
Management merit badge,
which is a required Eagle
Scout Merit Badge.
Life Scout Liam McDon-
ald was awarded his Read-
ing Merit Badge, which
is an elected merit badge
created in 1925. This merit
badge promotes reading,
library knowledge and four
hours of volunteering by
reading to an individual.
Eagle Scout Hunter
Hutton was awarded the
Bronze Eagle Palm to be


worn on his Eagle Scout
Badge. To earn the Bronze
Eagle Palm, Eagle Scout
Hunter Hutton had to
demonstrate Scout spirit
by living the Scout Oath
and Scout Law in his ev-
eryday life, make a satis-
factory effort to develop
and demonstrate leader-
ship ability and earn five
additional merit badges
beyond those required for
his Eagle Scout Rank.
The Court of Honor was
closed with remarks from
Scout Master, Steve Hut-
ton. He reminded each of
the scouts of their duty to
their family, troop, school
and community and he
encouraged each boy to
continue to work diligently
in achieving their goals.

Mary Katherine Pittman took home the grand champion
award in the Fed Cattle Show and won in the senior cat-

Marianna man picked up on warrants


From staff reports


The Marianna Police
Department reports that
at 2:05 a.m. Saturday,
Feb. 16, MPD officers
on patrol noticed a
vehicle at the Waffle
House on Lafayette Street
that was known to be
driven by Buddy


RandallWyatt.
Having knowledge of
several
active war-
S rants for
Wyatt's
arrest, of-
ficers made
contact
Wyatt with Wyatt
and placed


him under arrest.
Wyatt, 31, of Lynch
Drive in Marianna, was
taken to the Jackson
County Correctional
Facility to await first
appearance for two
counts of burglary of a
conveyance and
one count of grand
theft.

number of circumstances.
For instance, the City of
Marianna has been ex-
panding its borders in
recent years and its lim-

county's existing main fire
station north of town.
The county has hinted
that, it might want to
move its station to a dif-
ferent location since the


Marianna Fire Depart-
ment is now technically
responsible for the area
immediately surrounding
the current location of the
county station. The county
has considered a move
so that. personnel could
be available to situate in
another area where fire
coverage is not as readily,
available.
The county has also con-
sidered other .options re-
lated to the station.
The county also hopes
the study will yield infor-
mation and a plan of ac-


tion that will help it im-
prove the county's overall
fire rating through the
Insurance Services Office
(ISO), a number that can
play a large role in the
price of homeowner in-
surance premiums that
residents pay. The county's
most recent ISO fire rating
was less favorable that its
previous score, and the
decline has commission-

notch it back up the

Justices deny appeal for trooper's killer


The Associated Press'

TALLAHASSEE The
Florida Supreme Court
on Tuesday unanimously
denied a post-convic-
tion appeal and stay
sought by a drug trafficker
who is facing execution
on Feb. 26 for killing a
state trooper with a pipe
bomb.
An attorney for Paul Au-
gustus Howell, 47, said ad-
ditional appeals, though,
will be filed in state and
federal courts.
Howell was convicted
of killing Florida High-
way Patrol Trooper Jimmy
Fulford in February 1992.
Fulford had stopped a
car carrying the bomb,
hidden inside .a gift-


wrapped microwave oven,
on Interstate 10 east of
Tallahassee.
Authorities said the
bomb was intended to
kill two women in Mari-
anna because they knew
too much about a South
Florida drug ring.
Fulford was killed instant-
ly when it exploded as he
attempted to open the
package.
"The key issue in this
case was a substantial con-
flict of interest by his trial
attorney," said Michael
Ufferman, one of Howell's
appellate lawyers.
Ufferman said Frank
Sheffield, now a state cir-
cuit judge in Tallahassee,
had a conflict that came
because of a telephoned


death threat Sheffield
said his wife, then also
his secretary, had
received. ,
It came after Shef-
field had told Howell the
evidence against him
was overwhelming in a
separate drug trafficking
case then pending in fed-
eral court. Sheffield said
the anonymous caller
asked to leave a mes-
sage saying that "if Paul
Howell goes down, Mr.
Sheffield is going down
also."
The federal judge let
Sheffield withdraw from
the drug case. Howell
subsequently was con-
victed'of drug trafficking
and sentenced to life in
prison.

C.A.R. studies 'Black Robed Regiment' at meeting


Special to the Floridan

Blue Springs Society,
N.S.CA.R. members
learned about the Revolu-
tionary War "Black Robed
Regiment" at their Febru-
ary meeting from a skit by
Adrian Schell and Robert
K. Dunaway.
During the period before
the American Revolution it
was the custom for pastors
to preach sermons related
to current events. There-
fore, they often preached
against the way the Brit-
ish were treating the
colonies. By 1775 many
were promoting rebellion
and became known as the
"Black Robed Regiment."
One of the best known
members of the "Black
Robed Regiment" is Pe-
ter Muhlenberg; a pas-
tor in Woodstock,Va. On
Jan. 21, 1776, Muhlenberg
had made up his mind to
do what he thought ,was
right. His sermon text was
Ecclesiastes 3, "To every-
thing there is a season, and
a time to every purpose

under the heaven: A time
to be born, and a time to,
die; a time to plant, and
a time to pluck up that
which is planted..."
At the end of his ser-
mon he is reported to
have said, "In the lan-
guage of Holy writ, there
was a time for all things,
a time to preach, a time to
pray, but those times have
passed away." Then he de-
clared, "There is a time to


fight, and that time is now
coming!"
As his shocked parish-
ioners watched, the Rev.
Muhlenberg removed his
black clerical robe revel-
ing a military uniform.
Marching to the back of
the church he reportedly
asked, "Who among you is
with me?".
Three hundred Shenan-
doah Valley men joined
him to become the 8th

Grief still smolders 10 years after RI club fire


The Associated Press

WEST WARWICK, R.I. -
Along a busy commercial
road here sits a 10-year-
old scar that hasn't healed.
Next to a crumbling park-
ing lot, rusty folding.chairs
sit amid dozens of hand-
made crosses decorated
with beads, stuffed ani-
mals and fading photos.
This is where 100 people
Were killed Feb. 20, 2003,
when the tour manager
for the rock band Great
White set off a flashy py-
rotechnics display in an
overcrowded nightclub. Its
owners had tried to stem
noise complaints by lining
the walls with what turned
out to be flammable pack-
ing foam. '
In less than a minute, a
Thursday evening out for
more than 400 music lov-
ers and club employees
turned into a nightmare as
flames raced through the
one-story wooden road-
house. Some were lucky to
escape with nothing more
than bloody cuts or singed
hair. Others were crushed
beneath a throng that
surged for the front exit, or
died from breathing toxic
fumes created by the burn-
ing foam. Others survived
but were horribly burned,
some losing their eyesight
or their hands, or becom-
ing so troubled from the
-horrors they saw that they
attempted suicide.
Ten years later, the im-
print of the fire remains in
this tiny state of just over
1 million residents. It re-
mains in the survivors and
victims' family members,
J miiin of whom feel justice

have found different ways
to move forward with their
lives. It remains in the scars
- physical and mental
- of the people who made
it out alive. It remains in
the sadness so many here
still feel about that night,
and the hope that it can be
prevented from happening
again.
"There's corruption and
stupidity and greed, but
there's also hope and brav-
ery," said Dave Kane, who
lost his 18-year-old son in
the fire. "Our children did
not die for nothing. There's
a great legacy here, and if
people listen to it, they will
save other lives."
Any number of people
could have stopped the
fire from happening: Jef-
frey and Michael Derderi-
an, the owners of The Sta-
tion nightclub; the town
fire marshal who failed to
note the flammable foam
inside the club; and Dan-
iel Biechele, Great White's
tour manager, who set off

cult to look at herself in the
mirror in the months after
the fire. Her fiance, Fred'
Crisostomi, was killed.
Russo now leads The Sta-
tion Fire Memorial Foun-
dation, which is working to
build a permanent memo-
rial at the fire site. She said
she believes Crisostomi's
optimism and lift about
life was somehow living in
her since the fire.
"It completely changed'
my life in a positive way. I
plan on taking full advan-
tage of it," she said.

The only people crimi-
nally charged were the
Derderians and Biechele,
angering many who felt
officials including West
Warwick Fire Marshal De-

been charged, or Great

lead singer Jack Russell.
Great White guitarist Ty
Longley was among those

over'Jupiter Christian's Tag Wilber.
But he dropped his last two, matches to
-Jeff Rivers and Trace Woxberg to finish the
event with a record of 3-3.
It was a somewhat sour note to end it on,
but for someone who only started wrestling
two years ago as a freshman, it was a pretty
impressive run.
"I wish I would've placed higher," Combs
said. "But considering how much I've im-
proved from my freshman year to now, I'm
happy with it. I enjoyed it. It was a great
experience."

Marianna's Reagan Oliver gets a hit during Monday's game against Munroe.


Lady Bulldogs off to strong start

The Marianna Lady Bulldogs moved
to 3-0 to start the season with a 12-2
victory over the visiting Munroe Lady
Bobcats on Monday.
The Lady Bulldogs were coming off of
wins of 8-2 over Godby and 4-1 over Port
St. Joe, and they kept their early season
unbeaten streak going with a big offen-
sive day that saw 10 different players ac-
crue 11 total hits.
"That's real good balance for us," MHS
coach Scott Wiggins said after the game.0

Malone takes out

Seminole, 13-5

The Malone Tigers bounced back from a dis-
appointing road loss to Graceville last weekend
to take a 13-5 victory over Seminole County
(Ga.) on Monday night in Donalsonville, Ga.
Malone (2-1) suffered its first loss on Friday
after giving up two runs in the bottom of the
seventh to GHS, but on Monday, the margin
was much too big for any late-game heroics for
Seminole County.
Rather, it was Malone facing the early deficit,
falling behind 4-0 after the Indians posted four
runs in the first inning.
The Tigers responded with three runs in the
second inning, two in the third, one in the
fourth and five in the fifth to blow the game
open, and then adding two more in the top of Bi

Reagan Oliver was the only Marianna
player with two hits, as she finished 2-
for-3 with two runs and three RBI.
Taylor Hussey also drove in three runs
for the Lady Bulldogs, and Borinie Bigale
added two more.
Munroe struck first with a run in the
top of the first inning, but Marianna an-
swered with three in the bottom of the
frame thanks to RBI singles by Oliver
and Hussey and a run-scoring error that
allowed Whitney Lipford to come home
to make it 3-1.
Marianna started to blow the game
open with five runs in the second inning,
getting another RBI single by Oliver,


who scored on a Munroe error, and later
getting an RBI hit by Lindsie Eubanks to
score Linsey Basford to make it 7-1.
Hussey scored the final run of the in-
ning after a wild pitch, and the Lady
Bulldogs continued to pour it on with
four runs over the next two innings.
Taniyah Robinson walked and scored
on a wild pitch for Marianna's only run
in the third, and iri the fourth, Yazmine
Bellamy hit an RBI double to score Kay-
leigh Temples, and after a Lexie Basford
walk, Bigale followed with a two-run
triple to make it 12-1.

The Indians won the re-

when he said he heard a noise and
became alarmed because the bath-

"It filled me with horror and fear,"
Pistorius said in the statement.

Too frightened to turn on a light,
Pistorius said, he pulled out his pis-

Pistorius: Lover caught in'tragedy or killer?


The Associated Press

PRETORIA, South Africa Os-
car Pistorius portrayed himself as
a lover caught in tragedy, wield-
ing a pistol and frightened as he
stood only on his stumps, then
killed his girlfriend after mistaking
her for an intruder on Valentine's
Day.
Prosecutors, however, said the
double-amputee Olympian com-
mitted premeditated murder, plan-
ning the slaying, then firing at Reeva
Steenkamp as she cowered behind
his locked bathroom door with no
hope of escape.
"She couldn't go anywhere," Prose-
cutor Gerrie Nel told a packed court-
room Tuesday. "It must have been
horrific."
Weeping uncontrollably, Pisto-
rius listened as his words were read
out in court by his attorney during
the opening of a two-day bail hear-
ing, his first public account of the
events surrounding the shooting
death of Steenkamp, a 29-year-old
model and reality TV star who had
spoken out against violence against
women.
"I fail to understand how I could
be charged with murder, let alone
premeditated murder, as I had no
intention to kill my girlfriend, Reeva
Steenkamp," Pistorius said in the
sworn affidavit. "I deny the aforesaid
allegation in the strongest terms."
It was the first time that the prose-
cution and Pistorius provided details
of their radically divergent accounts
of the killing, which has shocked
South Africans and fans world-
wide, who idolized the 26-year-old
track star known as the Blade Run-
ner for overcoming his disability to
compete in last summer's London
Olympics.
Nel said Pistorius committed
premeditated murder when he
rose from his bed after a fight with
Steenkamp, pulled on his pros-
thetic legs and walked about 20 feet
from his bedroom to the locked
toilet door and pumped it with
four bullets, three of which hit the
model.
That contradicted the runner's
statement, read aloud by defense
attorney Barry Roux, who described
how the couple spent a quiet night
together in the athlete's upscale


he shouted to Steenkamp to call the
police as he fired at the closed toilet
door.
It was then, Pistorius said, that he
realized Steenkamp was not in bed.
He,said he pulled on his prosthetic
legs and tried to kick down the toi-
let door before finally giving up and
bashing it in with a cricket bat. In-
side, he said he found Steenkamp,
slumped over but still alive. He said
he lifted her bloodied body and car-
ried her downstairs to seek medical
help.
.But it was too late. "She died in my
arms," Pistorius said.
"We were deeplyin love and I could
not be happier," the athlete said. "I
know she felt the same way. She had
given me a present for Valentine's
Day but asked me only to open it the
next day."
Pistorius broke down in sobs re-
pehtedly as hit account was read,
-prompting Chief Magistrate Des-
mond Nair to call a recess at one
point.
"Maintain your composure," the
magistrate said. "You need to apply
your mind here."
"Yes, my lordship," Pistorius' re-
plied, his voice quivering.


Combs
From Page 1B
Combs, who said he'
was convinced to join the
wrestling team by Mari-
anna wrestler AJ Ward,
said that he achieved all
of the goals he set for
himself at the start of the
year, which he attributed
to his work ethic and his
coaching.
"I just worked hard ev-
ery practice every sum-
mer all summer and I've
just gotten a lot better ev-
eryyear," he said. "But I've
had a lot of help. (Marian-
na head wrestling coach
Ron Thoreson) helped me
a lot and brought in guys
that helped me with my
conditioning like coach
Larry Long. I won two
matches in overtime (at
state) just because I was
in better shape and had
better cardio. I've had a
lot of support from my
team and my family."
Thoreson said that he
couldn't be prouder to see
one of his wrestlers make
it as far as Combs did this
season.
"That's the farthest I've
ever had a kid go, the first
state placer we've had in
eight years," he said. "It's
huge. Devin works hard
and he deserves it. It's big
for him and big for us."
With Combs coming
back for another year, and
given the rapid improve-
ment he has made over a
relatively short period of
time, it's not unreason-
able to think that he could
make a serious run at a
state title next year.
Combs said that the pro-
cess of making that hap-
pen is already in motion.
"I'm already starting on
that and working hard,"
he said. "I'm going to hit
practice every week and
just lift weights and get in


good shape so I can hope-
fully get the gold next
year. After the outcome
(at state), I feel a lot more
confident going into next
year.."
It's a feat that Thoreson
said he certainly wouldn't
put past his top wrestler.
"I really believe Devin
can make a run at a state
title because he works
hard and is really dedi-
cated," he said. "This was
a huge confidence boost
for him. Devin came in
as a freshman who had
never wrestled a day in
his life, and to go from
no experience at all to
wrestling with the best
kids in the state in such
a short amount of time,
I'm very proud of what he
accomplished."
Combs was very nearly
joined by, three team-
mates at state, as 160-
pound freshman Marquez
Rhodes and juniors Ward
(120 pounds) and Greg
Screen (220 pounds) each
were one victory away at
the regional tournament
from qualifying for state:
With all three plus
Combs set to return for
next year, the Bulldogs,
who finished ninth as a
team at the regional tour-
nament after a runner-up
finish in district, could
make a big run of its own
in 2014.
"I think we're definitely
moving in the right direc-
tion, without a doubt,"
'Thoreson said. "I think
when you take 12 kids to
district and 10 of those
go to regionals, it's a very
successful year. I think
we're on the right track.
We definitely feel con-
fident about a district
title next year, and hope-
fully we can finish in the
top five in regionals and
take at least three-to-
five (wrestlers) to state at
least. That's the goal."

Tony Stewart prepares to go out onto the track during practice
for the NASCAR Daytona 500 Sprint Cup Series at Daytona
International Speedway on Saturday.


Stewart in



Patrick's shadow


at Speedweek


The Associated Press

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla.
- Tony Stewart typically
shines during Speedweeks,
the nine-day span where
he cements himself as a
top contender to win the
Daytona 500.
He's back in the spotlight
this year, just not the way
he's been in the past.
Stewart has so far been
overshadowed by Danica
Patrick, who drove a Stew-
art-Haas Racing Chevrolet
to the pole in qualifying for
the Daytona 500. It's made
Patrick, not Stewart, the
star so far at Daytona.
As Patrick's car owner,
Stewart is just fine with
that.
"I'll be honest, the pole
didn't matter to me per-
sonally," Stewart said after
Patrick qualified first for
Sunday's season-opening
race. "It was more as an
owner, wanting Danica to
be in the top two."
He got his wish, with Pat-
rick locking herself into
the field with the fastest
lap of last Sunday's quali-
fying session. It was an
all-around stellar qualify-
ing session for SHR, which
also had Ryan Newman
post the fourth fastest
time and Stewart one spot
behind in fifth.
It was a demonstration
of offseason preparation
for a team that spent the
winter not only readying
for NASCAR's new Gen-6
car, but also running three
Sprint Cup cars this season
with the full-time addition
of Patrick.
"This was probably one
of the most difficult win-
ters that I can remember
from my 15 years of going
through offseasons here
for teams to actually get
prepared to come down
here to Daytona," Stewart
said. "To have three cars in
the top five like that, just
really, really appreciative
and excited that we were
able to bring three consis-
tent cars down like this."
Stewart can bask in his
role as owner only until
Thursday, when it will be
time for him to start focus-
ing on the Daytona 500. It
was in the back of his mind
after qualifying last Sun-
day, when he was proud
of Patrick and the SHR or-
ganization but knew whit
was ahead for him as a
driver.


"To me, my eye is still
on next Sunday. Owner-
ship side this Sunday, next
Sunday I want it from the
driver's side," he said.
There's no questioning
how bad Stewart wants the
win.
Despite three Cup cham-
pionships, 47 career wins
in NASCAR's top series
and a record that proves
he's as one of the most tal-
ented and versatile drivers
in the world, Stewart has
several glaring holes on his
resume and one of them is
the Daytona 500.
In 17 seasons spanning
NASCAR and IndyCar,
Stewart has been able to
cross most everything off
his to-do list. But he has
fallen short 14 times in the
Daytona 500. He's won 18
career races at Daytona
- four in the July Cup race,
- but never in the biggest
race of them all.
Coincidentally, he's also
never won the Coca-Cola
600 at Charlotte, the South-
ern 500 at Darlington or
his beloved Indianapolis
500. He turned down an
offer from Roger Penske
in December to return to
the Indy 500 in a Penske
car this season after an 11-
year absence from the race
he was obsessed with as a
child.
It's because his com-
mitment must be on his
NASCAR organization,
must be on his No. 14.
Chevrolet, and right now
the task is to finally grab
a Daytona 500 victory. He
was reminded of how close
he's come while watch-
ing a recent special on
SPEED about drivers who
have failed to win the big-
gest race on the NASCAR
schedule.
"I saw three or four clips
of races where I remember
we had a shot and let it get
away from us," he said.
"Everything has to go right.
The Indy 500 is the same
way. It's easy to compare
those two because every-
thing has to' go right that
whole day.
"You don't normally get
the opportunity to have
a mistake and come back
from it. It just seems like
it's hard to make up from
a mistake. You look at the
guys that normally have
that trophy at the end of
the day, they're guys that
had no drama at all during
their race."

Teen making history as 4th



black driver in NASCAR


The Associated Press

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla.
- With his Canon 60D
in hand, Darrell Wallace
Jr. is a fixture at the track,
eagerly snapping photos
with an insider's view of
auto racing. His Instagram
account is littered with
day-in-the-life snapshots
of cars and crews, all car-
rying the tag, "My crazy
life captured in pictures."
Wallace, though, isn't a
typical 19-year-old NAS-
CAR prospect trying to
climb the ladder, and he's
less interested in a bud-
ding photography career.
He is a pioneer of sorts as
only the fourth black driv-
er with a full-time ride in a
NASCAR series.
When Wallace takes the
wheel for the Truck Series
race Friday at Daytona
International Speedway,
he'll become a slice of
NASCAR history in a race
that ignites his goal of
serving as a role model for
a generation of potential
future black drivers.
"It's kind of up to me,"
Wallace said. "It's kind of a
huge weight."
Busting down racial bar-
riers in a sport long re-
served for whites is pretty
heavy stuff for a teenager
and all eyes are on him. Yet
Wallace,, the son of a white
father and black mother,
openly talks of becoming
the Tiger Woods of NAS-
CAR the great black star
who can transcend the
sport and prove people of
all colors can race.
"You don't have a role
model. That's why you
don't see anybody in it,"-
Wallace said. "They can't
look up and be like, 'I want
to be like him because
he's the same color as me.'
There's no one there to do
that. I'm the top one right
now and I'm only 19."
Wallace joins Wendell
Scott, Willy T. Ribbs and
Bill Lester as the only
full-time black drivers
in the 65-year history of
NASCAR. Scott is the only
black driver to win a race,
way back in 1964.
Wallace is signed with
Joe Gibbs Racing and will
drive the No. 54 Toyota for
Kyle Busch Motorsports
on Friday. Gibbs knows as
well as anyone what it's like
to work with black athletes
under the microscope. He
coached the Washington
Redskins when Doug Wil-
liams became the first
black quarterback to win
a Super Bowl in 1988.
Gibbs said Wallace has the

talent and the men-
tal toughness to break
through in NASCAR.
"I think he's the right
kid," Gibbs said.
Wallace, raised in Con-
cord, N.C., has the full
support of the black driv-
ers before him. Lester has
sent him encouraging
tweets. Wallace met some
of Scott's children at a race
in Virginia.
"They're just happy to
see someone following in
their dad's footsteps," he
said. "I'm hoping that I
can carry that torch a little
farther."
He's in a better position
to succeed than many
other minorities over the
years. He has sponsor-
ship, a top-flight team in
JGR and is a graduate of
NASCAR's diversity pro-
gram. Even in NASCAR,
the climate has changed
where drivers of all sexes
and colors are openly ac-
cepted, in the garage, and
hopefully in the stands.
Wallace, who goes by
Bubba, spent the last
three seasons driving in a
low-level NASCAR devel-
opmental series and said
racism in all forms was
nonexistent.
At lower levels of racing,
though, Wallace would
hear racial insults or
encounter ignorant views.
"We used to take it from
fans," his father, Darrell,
said. "We've had it from
othet drivers. We've had it
from officials. We've had
it from promoters. We've
had it from track owners.
We've pretty much had it
from everybody."
Wallace said the heckles
and hurtful words from
his formative years in the
sport have been left on
the side of the road and he

"I'd show up the next

My dad got more fired up
than anything."
His father sparked a
love of the sport when he
was 9, putting him in go-
karts, and always scouting
out the next series. Dar-
rell Wallace even bought
a Legends car from Mark
Martin. He attends every
race and will be in the
stands Friday night. His
mother, Desiree, ran track
at Tennessee and stays
home to watch on TV
("She likes hearing what
they say about me.").
Mom did offer a piece of
advice that has stuck with
Wallace. Avoid confronta-
tions with other drivers
who used slurs. Just go
win.


Wallace's love and tal-
ent for the sport will mean
nothing if he can't find the
right sponsor willing to
fund his career. Sponsor-
ship cash is the lifeblood
of the sport.
His father has owned
an industrial cleaning
business since 1999 and
pumped at least $1 mil-
lion into his-son's fledgling
career. He spent as much
$250,000 in 2008. The el-
der Wallace paid bills late
and borrowed money
to keep his son's career
alive.
"He tried to do every-
thing he could to keep me
racing," Wallace said.
It's a path he expects to
land him in the Sprint Cup
series.
"I'm not ready for it next
year. I'm not ready for it in
two years," he said. "It's all
about the timing. It's all
about how well I do this
year."

Horoscope
PISCES (Feb. 20-March
20) Guard against a,
strong inclination to
reward the undeserving
while overlooking the
virtuous.
ARIES (March 21-April
19) Unless you get a
handle on your moods,
they'll hamper you greatly.
TAURUS (April 20-May
20) -You could do
yourself a great disservice
by reacting impulsively
and blindly allowing one
of your hunches to direct
your actions. Check things
out first.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20)
- If you've been borrow-
ing things lately, it's best to
.clear matters up by return-
ing everything as soon as
possible.
CANCER (June 21-July
22) Taken alone, your
judgment isn't too bad, but
you must be careful not to
be swayed by another who
doesn't have your best
interest in mind.
LEO (July23-Aug. 22) -
Don't be impatient if your
fellow man doesn't grasp
the essence of an idea as
quickly as you'd like.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
- Normally, you are an
extremely prudent person,
but today you could
become intrigued with a
financial affair that could
be extremely risky.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23)
-When making a major
household purchase, you
should take things slowly.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov.
22) This could be one
of those days when you
could benefit from putting
off what you don't feel
like doing, especially if
it's something extremely
distasteful to you.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-
Dec. 21) Be extremely
careful when handling the
resources of another as
well as your own. Indiffer-
ence on your part could
prove to be more costly
than you thought.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan.
19) -Although you are
usually a good salesper-
son, this might not be
true at present due to
carelessness.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb.
19) There is a strong
likelihood that you could
reveal something that you
promised to keep secret.


Annie's Mailbox


Dear Annie: I am a 19-year-old heroin
addict striving toward recovery. I go to
five Narcotics Anonymous meetings a
week, but I have occasional setbacks.
After the most recent incident, I left drug
paraphernalia in the bathroom. I took
full responsibility and was ashamed with
myself. But the first thing my mother
said was, "Did you leave that out on pur-
pose so your sister could find it and start
experimenting? She's only 13!"
Annie, my sister is anti-drugs, and I talk
to her a lot about the subject. I believe
openness and honesty are the keys to
avoidance, and I will do everything I
can to save her from making the same
mistakes I have made.
My parents will never understand ad-
diction, but I wish they would try a little
harder. I have repeatedly asked them to
come to one NA meeting. I wrote them a
three-page letter explaining the impor-
tance of my going to meetings and how
valuable their support would be to me,
but they have no interest. They discour-
age me from attending meetings, and


Bridge
How is patience a virtue in this deal? South
is in four hearts. West leads his singleton
diamond. East overtakes with his ace and con-
tinues with the king, which South ruffs with
the heart king. What happens after that?
South made a textbook triple-jump overcall.
North was not sure if game would make, but W
since it could have been laydown, he sensibly 4
raised to four hearts. South has three aces to
lose. To make his contract, he must not con-
cede a second trump trick.
Note that East's winning the first trick with
his ace and then leading the king were suit-
preference signals for spades.
What will happen depends on West's pa-
tience. Since he knows East has the spade ace,
there will be a temptation to overruffwith
the heart ace and shift to a spade. East will
win with his ace and lead another diamond,
but South will ruff high, draw trumps in two
more rounds, and claim. West must be patient,
discarding at trick two.
South will continue with a high trump, but
West wins and puts his partner on lead in
spades. When East plays a diamond, it pro-
motes a second trump trick for West. South
has only two high trumps left, and West still
holds the nine and the three.


when I brought home literature from NA
for them, they left it on the floor, and the
dog chewed it.
I am heartbroken and need their sup-
port so much. Fighting my addiction is
hard and scary, and instead of helping,
they attack.
BEGGING FOR MUMMY
AND DADDY

Dear Begging: Your parents are fright-
ened and they also don't trust you.
Getting off of hard drugs is a difficult
process, and we commend your efforts.
Your parents' support is important. But
if your setbacks include using drugs in
their home and leaving paraphernalia in
plain sight, it contributes to their anger.
Would your parents help with the cost
of a reputable rehab facility? The Salva-
tion Army also offers a program. You are
making progress, but it is often beneficial
to be separated from the culture that
contributes to your drug use. Please
show your parents this letter, and tell
them you wrote it. We hope it helps.

Tiger awaits Match Play after round with Obama


The Associated Press

MARANA, Ariz. Tiger
Woods delivered a "State
of the Game" on Presi-
dent Barack Obama's golf-
ing prowess and the news
wasn't all bad.
"If he ever spent after
these four years spent
more time playing the
game of golf, I'm sure he
could get to where he's a
pretty good stick," Woods
said Wednesday.
Woods comes, into the
Match Play Championship
on somewhat of a winning
streak. While he revealed
very few details about his
Sunday round with Obama
at The Floridian, he at least
made sure everyone knew
that they won.
The competition picks
up at Dove Mountain,
where the first World Golf
Championship of the year
starts Wednesday in what
might be frigid weather.
Instead of having Presi-
dent Obama as his partner


against Houston Astros
owner Jim Crane and out-
going U.S. Trade Represen-
tative Ron Kirk, the second-
seeded Woods opens this
fickle tournament against
Charles Howell 11I in a
match that takes both of
them back to their youth.
The last time they faced
each other in this format,
Woods beat Howell in the
quarterfinals of the 1996
U.S. Amateur.
Woods is the only three-
time winner of the Match
Play Championship, though
he hasn't advanced out of
the second round since he
last won this event in 2008.
The riames in the 64-man
field have changed over the
years. The strategy has not.
"The whole idea is just
to beat one guy at a time,"
Woods said. "That's the
thing. There are times where
I've played well in matches
and I've lot, and other times
where I've played poorly
and advanced.
"It's pot luck in these 18-

hole sprints like this. As I
said, it's imperative to get
off to a quick start and get
up on your opponent ear-
ly. It's just so hard to come
back 18-hole matches, and
hopefully, I can do that
conceivably for all six."
Rory McIlroy is the No. 1
seed and will play Shane
Lowry, a longtime friend
and former partner on the
Irish team that won the


European Team Cham-
,pionships in 2007. In a
similar match, former U.S.
Open champion Graeme
McDowell (Northern Ire-
land) plays three-time ma-
jor champion Padraig Har-
rington (Ireland).
The toughest challenge
might be the weather, with
a front expected to move
across the high desert over-
night and bringing tem-


peratures so low that light
snow is possible. At best, it
figures to be frigid for the
morning matches as the
sun is beginning to climb
over The Ritz-Carlton Club
at Dove Mountain.
"No one likes to play in
adverse weather," said Ian
Poulter, playing for first
time since, Hawaii, when
the tournament took four
days to start because of 40
mph wind.
Woods said he would be
used to the wind and cold
because that's what he
dealt with in Florida with
the president.
It was the second time
Woods has played with a
sitting U.S. president he
once played with former
President Bill Clinton at The
Alotian Club in Arkansas.
Woods sounded surprised
to learn that Obama played
left-handed, and when
asked to describe the presi-
dent's best shot, Woods said
that "he hit a few."
"He's a pretty good ath-


lete, and we all khow he
played a lot of hoops,"
Woods said. "He's a lefty,
but to see him out there
hitting shots ... he hit it.
well, and we didn't play un-
der the easiest conditions.
It was blowing harder than
this, and it was a little bit
cooler than this. So we
played under some tough
conditions, and as I said,
he hit the ball well. He's
got amazing touch. He can
certainly chip and putt."
That's the key for anyone
in match play.
Luke Donald has one of
the best. short games in
golf, which explains why
he won two years ago in
the most dominant perfor-
mance in the 14-year his-
tory of this event. Donald
is the only player to have
never reached the 18th
hole in any of his matches.
As for the fickle nature of
match play?
Donald didn't even make
it out of the first round last
year against Ernie Els.


Rory Mcllroy,
the top seed in
the World Golf
Championship,
will face his old
friend Shane
Lowry in the
first round
Wednesday.

MARANA, Ariz.
hane Lowry had not
thought much about
the Irish Open until
he saw the picture posted
this week on Twitter.
The celebration was
an Irish version of when
Francis Oui-
met won the
1913 U.S.
Open as an
amateur at
Brookline.
Lowry was a
Lowry 22-ye'ar-old
amateur
at County
Louth in
2009 when
he holed a
2-foot putt
in a play-
off to beat
Mcllroy Robert Rock.
He dropped
the-putter and raised
his arms in one motion,
bounced on his feet and
thrust his arms forward.
He rushed into the arms of
his caddie as hundreds of
fans parents, cousins,
everyone swarmed him
on the green.
The picture brought to
mind a glorious day in his
past and a daunting
challenge in his immedi-
ate future.

In the middle of that wild
scene was Rory McIlroy,
brown curls spilling out
from under his golf cap,
shaking a bottle of cham-
pagne to douse Lowry.
"It was unbelievable,"
McIlroy recalled Tuesday.
"Amateur comes in, virtu-
Sally unheard of, and plays
great in the conditions,
and the celebration at the
end when he beat Robert
Rock in the playoffwas
pretty special."
Their past includes more
than dreary afternoon
in the rain at Baltray.
They practically grew up
together in Irish amateur
golf, both the best in their
respective age groups, and
they were foursomes part-
ners on the Irish team that
won the European Team
Championships in 2007.
The future is Wednesday
at Dove Mountain.

time major champion
at 23, is the No. 1 player
in the world and the top
seed in the Match Play
Championship. Thanks to
a peculiar series of events
over the last two weeks,
his opponent in the first
round will be Lowry.
"Who would have
thought a few years ago,
playing in the European
Team Championships at
Western Gailes, that we'd
be playing in the first
round of the Match Play
here in a few years' time,"
McIlroy said. "It's pretty
cool to think where we've
come from."
What makes this even
more compelling is they
are nothing alike.
McIlroy was groomed to
be a star as a toddler. Lowry
didn't even start playing
golf until he was 12, and
didn't realize he was any
good until his late teens.
One of them is comfort-
able in the spotlight. The
other feels at home with
the boys in the pub.
Lowry was asked if there'
were any similarities be-
tween them, beyond their
.Irish roots. He thought
long and hard before say-
ing, "He plays golf."
"I've always thought that


Rory was going to be one
of the best golfers if not
the best golfer in the
world at some stage," said
Lowry, two years older
than McIlroy. "Growing up,
he was always the best in
his age group. I was always
the best in age groups, as
well. Did I think I'd be here
playing against the world
No. 1? I don't know if I
knew I was good enough
to turn pro and compete.
I didn't know how good
I was going to be. I still
don't know how good I'm
going to be."
He was good enough
to win the Irish Open as
an amateur, the greatest
achievement in his family
since his father, Gaelic soc-
cer star Brendan Lowry, led
County Offaly to the All-
Ireland Team Champion-
ship in 1992. He followed
that with a win last year at
the Portugal Masters.
Is he good enough to
beat McIlroy?
"I'll definitely be going
out there fighting for this
match tomorrow, and I'll
be gunning to try and beat
him," Lowry said. "I think
if I beat Rory tomorrow, it
would be one of the great
stories of my career so far.
I've got nothing to lose."
