benefit of 14 kids visiting Chipola College for the school's first-ever Champ Camp. During the two-day
event, the Florida Department of Children's and Families partners with institutions and businesses to
expose kids in the child welfare system to new life and career opportunities. At Chipola, the kids were
introduced to the fun and educational sides of college through activities such as a visit to the automo-

things up with the science club and attending Tuesday's Chipola basketball game against Pensacola State

them get some hands-on experience in whatever career they are interested in.
Nortek Boulevard project moves forward
BY DEBORAH BUCKHALTER
Jackson County Commissioners are ex-
pected to select a contractor next month to
resurface Nortek Boulevard, a county road
that runs through the Compass Lake in the
Hills subdivision and beyond.
The Florida Department of Transporta-
tion is funding the project at $1.7 million
through its Small County Road Assistance
Program. Jackson County Engineer Larry
Alvarez said he anticipates that the proj-
ect will come in under budget and that
it should be completed within 120 days
once the work starts on the 4.4 miles of
John Laymon, manager of the subdivi-
sion's property owners association, says the
progress is welcome and that the commu-
nity hopes yet more can be accomplished
on Nortek. In addition to the repaving set
for the asphalt-surfaced portion of the
road, subdivision residents would also like
to see the county pave.the remainder of
the road, he said, a roughly 2.5-mile dirt
Laymon said the road is "extraordinarily
important" to the community in part be-
cause it is an important corridor for the fire
"'We are pleased and appreciative that
they're repaving what's already paved, and
we'd love to see the dirt section paved also,"
Laymon said. "Not too many months in the
past, we were responding to a fire call and
our engine got in some of the loose dirt
beside the road and at that point encoun-
tered an oncoming auto. The truck slid off
in a ditch while responding to a call. That's
not good. We've talked to our commis-
sioner (Jeremy Branch) and he has really
worked hard on our behalf, but it's difficult
to come up with additional dollars to do
that. We can continue to press and push,
and the state can be helpful in this regard
because it's a safety issue."
The county board approved specifica-
tions for the resurfacing work on the paved
portion of Nortek last week in its regular
first-of-the-month meeting, and handled

Baker lifts Tigers past Chipley
BY DUSTIN KENT
MALONE For the second
straight season, Malone and
Chipley squared off in Malone
with their seasons on the line.
Unlike last season, it was the
visiting Tigers that left disap-
pointed, as Malone dealt Chi-
pley a 61-50 defeat on Tuesday
to keep its season alive and ad-
vance to Saturday's regional final
round against Holmes County.
Chai Baker scored 27 points to
lead Malone and the Tigers got a
measure of redemption after be-
ing eliminated in last year's re-
gional final game by Chipley.
Ty Baker added 17 points for
Malone, who were able to over-
come a 32-point performance
by Chipley's star freshman Trent
"This is a real big win for us,"
Chai Baker said after the game.
"Chipley is a very good team
and we knew nothing was going
to come easy. But we came out
ready to play and we weren't go-
ing to be stopped."
Chai Baker scored 12 points in
the fourth-quarter to help blow
open a tight game, as Malone
went on a 17-3 run to start the
final period to turn a two-point
edge after three into a 16-point
advantage with just over two
minutes to play.
Malone coach Steven Welch
said that it was his team's inten-
sity at the defensive end of the
court that made the difference
in the end.
"I thought the defensive effort
was great," he said. "I think de-
fensively we were able to grind
it out a little bit and eventually
wore them down. I thought we
were pressing a little bit early on,
but we finally let lose and just
played. We were able to get some
stops and some run-outs in the
fourth to stretch it out a little."
Malone threatened to pull away
on multiple occasions before the
fourth, going up by seven late in
the first half and by six late in the
third quarter, but each time For-
rest brought Chipley back with
big plays at both ends.
Forrest scored the final five
poihts of the firsthalfto cut Malo-
ne's lead to one at the break, and

Dear Annie: I am a senior m high.
school. I have been dating "Brianna"
for 10 months. She graduated last year
and attended a community college, but
really had no ambition or motivation to
be there. We spent last summer together,
and I honestly fell head over heels in love
Here's the problem. I have been ac-
cepted to many colleges out of town. It
has always been my dream to go away
to school. I told Brianna it wouldn't be
fair to either of us to stay together while I
am away, but I want us to be together as
much as possible until then. Ever since
I mentioned this to Brianna, however,
things haven't been the same. We've been
arguing a lot.
Brianna's dad left when she was 12,
and she's still crushed by it. She doesn't
get along well with her family and tells
me I'm all she has. She says when I go
away to school, I'll be leaving her just like
Now I feel nothing but guilt when I
think about college. I want us to enjoy
our time together as much as possible. I
want Brianna to be my date for my senior

sure of the location of a critical card. Then he will usu-

In this example deal, how should the defenders card

North, with a Yow doubleton, reasonably used Stay-
man to try to find a 4-4 spade fit.
First, let's look at the deal from declarer's point of
view. He has eight top tricks: two spades, three hearts,
two diamonds and one club (the first trick). If dia-
monds are favorable, he has overtricks in his future.
So he wins trick one, plays a diamond to dummy's
ace and calls for another diamond. What should East
Second, let's go back to trick one. East must play the
club jack, bottom of touching honors when playing
third hand high. The snag is that West does not know
who has the queen; it could be East or South.
Third, East should apply the Rule of Eleven. Seven
from 11 is four. So there are four clubs higher than the
seven in the North, East and South hands combined.
And East has seen all four. He must clarify the situa-
tion for his partner by discarding the club queen!
Then, when West gets in with his diamond queen,
he will cash four club tricks for down one.

test. If you should fail then
try, try again.

delays could break open
for you through the work

COLLEGE BOUND AND
Dear College Bound: Whether or not to
stay together until the end of the sum-
mer is up to Brianna, too. If she can
handle it, wishing you well, it's a solid
idea, apd you can plan to see each other
over winter break. But if Brianna feels
you are abandoning her, she may try to
hold you hostage emotionally, pressur-
ing you to alter your plans. That will only
create hard feelings and resentment all
around. Talk to Brianna and ask what
she wants to do, but be firm about your
future. Good luck.

Do we dare consider the possibility

We've learned to never doubt the Daytona
500's ability to serve up shockers. But keeping
the car calm and straight for one very fast lap
is entirely different from' holding off the jackals

relatively little superspeedway experience,
especially at this level, will have to pedal fast
and learn even faster. A lead-lap, top-15 finish
would be like a win.
