Flooding possible beginning Friday


From staff reports
Flash flooding and longer-term river
flooding are expected Friday, over the
weekend and into next week as severe
storms from two weather systems are
expected to dump heavy rain across the
region. Isolated tornadoes or damaging
winds are also possible in the area.
The first storm, taking shape over the
Southern Plains, is expected to impact
the area Friday and Saturday. The second
system is forming southwest of Alaska
and is expected to reach the Deep South
early next week, according to a press re-
lease from the National Weather Service.
While the risk of a direct severe storm is
slight, the potential for very heavy rainfall


is higher as each system pulls into very
warm and moist air over the Gulf of Mex-
ico. Southeast Alabama and Southwest
Georgia are at the highest risk of flash
flooding, but the Florida Panhandle is
also potentially in the path of heavy rain
bands Friday night and Saturday
River flooding is expected as heavy rain
from swollen rivers to the north flows
downstream. Jackson and surrounding
counties could see two to four inches of
rain Friday through Saturday morning,
and the amounts could be much higher
in specific areas.
In the event of heavy rain, flash flood-
ing is likely on low-lying parcels of land
See FLOODING, Page 7A


MARK SKINNER/FLORIDAN
Fast-rising water inundated the boat landing on Caverns Road last week. Jackson County is
expected to receive several more inches of rain over the next few days.

CSX begins massive improvements to rail systems soon

Expect traffic delays, detours at crossings .


BY DEBORAH BUCKHALTER'
dbuckhalter@jcfloridan.com

CSX Transportation will be re-
placing many crossties along
the company's rail systems that
run through Jackson, Washing-
ton and Holmes counties over
the next several weeks, and some
traffic delays and detours will oc-
cur at the crossings as a result.
The company will start the se-
ries of improvements in Jackson
County at the rail near Gulf Power
Road in Sneads on or near March
4. The work will then continue
westward through the county
and on into Washington and Hol-
mes counties.
The scope of the project is

massive, says project contractor
Bernard McAdams. The compa-
ny only undertakes replacement
on this scale every seven to nite
years.
A crew of 50 to 60 men will be
assigned to the job, replacing
roughly 1,300 crossties per mile
and covering two or three miles a
day. The team is expected to have
replaced 90,000 crossties and
about 100 crossings by the time
the work is finished.
At crossings, the work will take
about three days at each location
because roadway asphalt work is
required in those spots when and
after the crossties are taken out

Coley, Gaetz waiting

BYANGIECOOK
acook@jcfloridan.com
Gov. Rick Scott has plans
to expand Medicaid cover-
age to nearly 900,000 more
Floridians and he wants
the Florida Legislature to
approve the move.
Announced Wednesday,
and reported il Thursday's
Floridan (page 4A) by The
Associated
Press, Scott
said he will
ask the Leg-
islature to
expand the
taxpayer-
Coley funded
health insur-
ance program under a bill
that would expire in three
years.
His support bf the expan-
sion is contingent on the
federal government pay-
ing for the
increased
expense.


the Obama
Gaetz administra-
tion for the
first three years, the federal
government pays 100 per-
cent of the increased costs
of expanded Medicaid cov-
erage. After that, they pay
90 percent of the cost for
the additional enrollees.
The AP report went on to
say that Scott's Wednesday
announcement was a sur-
prise change in position
for the Republican gover-
nor. The former hospital
chain CEO has in the past
been vocal about his oppo-
sition to President Barack
Obama's plan to overhaul
health care and Florida's
lawsuit challenging the Af-
fordable Care Act went all
the way to the Supreme
Court.
Scott's announcement,
according to AP came
hours after federal health
officials said they plan to
approve Florida's request
to privatize its Medic-
aid program, which the

SUBMITTED PHOTOS
Members and guests of Bethlehem Baptist Church located in the Kynesville community observed Youth Day on Sunday, Feb. 17. The

gave the youth the opportunity to find out how hard it is to prepare the lessons for each class and how much can be learned by
studying. The congregation of Bethlehem Baptist Church appreciates the hard work and willingness of the youth directors, Brad and Dana
Kent in working with their youth. For more information regarding youth or other activities at Bethlehem Baptist Church call 579-9940.

FSUfilm

school

ordered to

relocate
The Associated Press

TALLAHASSEE Florida
State University must move
its digital film program
from West Palm Beach to
the school's main campus
in Tallahassee, the Board
of Governors decided
Thursday.
The board, which over-
sees Florida's 12 public
universities, also approved
an online learning plan
that includes designating
a single school.to take the
lead for the entire State
University System.
Florida State and lo-
cal officials in West Palm
Beach had pushed to keep
the digital film program
there after a private com-
pany that had been part-
nering with the university
filed for Chapter 11 federal
bankruptcy protection.
The firm, Digital Domain,
pulled out of the partner-
ship and closed its'hew an-
imation studio in nearby
Port St. Lucie.
Students also have writ-
ten letters to the board
urging it to let the program
stay in South Florida, but
only one member, Uni-
versity of Central Florida
Associate Professor of
Civil Engineering Manoj B.
Chopra, opposed the move
during Thursday's confer-
ence call meeting.
Chopra, the board's fac-
ulty representative, said
the digital film major
wasn't reliant on Digital
Domain and had its own
identity and success based
on curriculum and qual-
ity instructors with indus-
try experience as well as
its South Florida location.
Faculty members have told
university officials they will
not move to Tallahassee.
"I strongly believe this
identity will be lost when
it's absorbed into the well-
established film program
on the main campus,"
Chopra said. "It appears
to me that an educational
entity has been penalized
for the failure of a business
enterprise."


FAMU still

resolving

hazing

lawsuit
The Associated Press

TALLAHASSEE- Flori-
da A&M University is still
trying to resolve a lawsuit
filed by the family of a
drum major who died fol-
lowing a hazing ritual.
The university board
held an emergency meet-
ing on Thursday night to
discuss the lawsuit filed
by the family of Robert
Champion. Champion
died in November 2011.
The meeting held by
telephone was closed
to the press and public
because it involves an
ongoing lawsuit.
The Champions, who
live in the Atlanta suburb
of Decatur, Ga., claim
university officials did
not take enough action to
stop hazing in the famed
Marching 100 band before
the death of their son.
They rejected a previous
offer to settle the case for
$300,000.
Since Champion's death
FAMU has made sweeping
changes to try to combat
hazing.

Fla. senators eye changes in nuclear utility rates


The Associated Pi ess

TALLAHASSEE Four
Republican state sena-
tors Thursday announced
plans to seek changes
in a Florida law that lets
utilities charge customers
for future nuclear power
plant construction even if
it never gets built.
A House member spon-
soring repeal legislation,
though, said the Tampa
Bay area lawmakers' pro-
posal won't work because
it doesn't go far enough
and utilities will find a way
around their revisions.
Sen. John Legg, R-Lutz,
said the legislation's intent
is to protect consumers'
interests, assure account-
ability and transparency
and responsibly plan for
Florida's long-terin energy
needs.
"On the details, there is
plenty of room for con-
versation," Legg said at
a' news conference. "But
on these three principles
there will be no room for
compromise."
Legg's bill, which hasn't
yet been filed, would set a
deadline for construction'

Augusta, Ga.


to begin and eliminate the
profit utilities can 'make
on customers' prepay-
ments if they fail to build
a plant. Another provision
would reduce interest util-
ities now earn on carrying
costs on their projected
construction cost balanc-
es from a current 8.5 per-
cent to an annual market
rate, said Sen. Jack Latvala,
R-Clearwater.
"This is merely a Band-
Aid or even could be
a whitewash telling


consumers that they've
done something and not
doing anything, really,"
said Rep. Michelle Re-
hwinkel Vasilinda. The
Tallahassee Democrat
is sponsoring a bill that
would repeal the 2006
nuclear cost recovery law.
"This half-measure just
doesn't move us forward."
Rehwinkel Vasilinda
advocates conservation
and renewable energy as
alternatives to nuclear
power. She said the Senate


legislation appears to be
aimed at heading off a
repeal vote. Legg denied
that.
Utilities normally cannot
begin billing customers
for the construction costs
or upgrades until generat-
ing facilities go into ser-
vice. The 2006 law makes
an exception to that policy
for nuclear power.
It was designed to en-
courage more nuclear
plants, which are riskier
and much more expen-
sive to build, to reduce the
state's reliance on fossil fu-
els such as coal and natu-
ral gas that cost more and
contribute to air pollution
and climate change.
Latvala, though, said
"times have changed." He
noted gas prices have fall-
en since 2006 along with
the need for new generat-
ing capacity because Flor-
ida's population growth
has slowed due to hard
economic times.
The senators' proposal
also drew criticism from
Florida Power & Light Co.

Fla. Gov. turnabout on health care angers allies


The Associated Press


TALLAHASSEE Min-
utes after Florida Gov.
Rick Scott made a surprise
about-face decision to ex-
pand Medicaid, social me-
dia lit up with complaints
from tea party loyalists and
core conservatives who
said they felt betrayed by
a leader who campaigned
on his opposition to the
Affordable Care Act.
The last 24 hours creat-
ed an almost unthinkable
situation for Scott: Repub-
licans now openly.criti-
cizing the head of their
party in Florida, while
Democrats were rushing
to praise him.
"We may invite him to


come and join the party,"
joked Rep. Perry Thurston,
D-Plantation and lead-
er of the Florida House
Democrats.
Scott on Wednesday an-
nounced that he would
support plans to expand
Medicaid coverage to
roughly 900,000 more
people under the federal
health overhaul. He be-
came the seventh Repub-
lican governor so far to
propose expanding the
taxpayer-funded health
insurance program.
But Scott's stance drew
national interest because
he had been a passionate
opponent to the overhaul.
Just last summer Scott
had vowed he would not

Cruise lawsuits are in,

but Carnival has advantage


The Associated Press

MIAMI Lawsuits
are already filed in this
month's disastrous Tri-
umph cruise ship voy-
age, but the legal deck is
stacked in parent compa-
ny Carnival's favor, mainly
because 5of the restrictive
terms of vacationers' tick-
ets, governing who can
sue and where.
Cases involving the
Triumph which was
disabled Feb. 10 by an
engine fire that stranded
thousands of passengers
onboard for days in the
Gulf of Mexico and
other Carnival Cruise
Lines ships must be filed
in South Florida federal
courts, near the compa-
ny's Miami headquar-
ters. The ship left from
Galveston, Texas, for
Mexico and eventually
was towed to port in Mo-
bile, Ala., after the fire.
Passengers traveled from
around the country for
the trip.
Maritime law experts
said Thursday that pas-
sengers could win despite
the limitations if they can


show that the cruise line
was negligent in letting
the ship sail despite past
engine problems and that
their mental suffering was
so severe they had to seek
medical or psychological
care.
S"I think there is a good
case of liability against
Carnival. The issue really
comes down to the dam-
ages," said Robert Peltz,
a maritime lawyer not
involved in any Triumph-
related cases.
Still, other attorneys
cautioned it won't be easy
because of the way Carni-
val and others craft their
cruise tickets which are
considered legally bind-
ing contracts often run-
ning several pages of fine
print.
"If the ship breaks down,
consumers are dependent
on the goodwill of the
cruise lines, which draft-
ed iron-tight terms and
conditions which protect
them from virtually all
bad experiences," said Jim
Walker, a Miami maritime
attorney and author of a
blog called www.cruise-
law.com.

The governor called his
decision a tough choice

eral government pays 100

The Juno Beach-based
company issued a state-
ment opposing any
changes to the current
law, contending it'll save
consumers billions in

"Those benefits aren't
theoretical they are real

statement says.

Bubriski said in an email

But the Medicaid expansion isn't

sion, and the Legislature doesn't

already saturated, and
river flooding is possible in
areas like Jackson County
generally, where rivers are
already rising from recent
rains. The Chipola River,
Lake Seminole and, to a
lesser extent, the Apala-
chicola River could all po-
tentially flood.
Jackson County Emer-
gency Management Direc-
tor Rodney Andreasen said
local residents should take
precautions.
"People should first se-
cure property and other
important items that
may be lost because of


recommendations of the select
committee.
"I am concerned that expanding
Medicaid is not going to improve
the quality of our health care or
provide long-term financial secu-
rity for our state."
Senate President Don Gaetz, R-
'Niceville, released a statement on
the issue Thursday:
"The Senate Select Commit-
tee on PPACA is in the process of
completing its thorough review of
state options associated with fed-
eral health care reform. Senator
Joe Negron, Chair of our PPACA
Select Committee, anticipates
that the committee will com-


flooding," he stated.
He said residents should
also take steps ahead of the
bad weather to ensure that
they are not trapped by ris-
ing water if they live in an
area prone to flooding.
He also advised people to
stay away from the rising
water as much as possible;
the water will be cold and
hypothermia could set in if
a person gets swept into it.
Jackson County SufIer-
visor of Elections Sylvia
Stephens lives near the
Chipola River. She's ready
for what may come, she
said. Her home is near the
Chipola River and on high
ground, but sometimes
the road leading onto her
property floods. When that
threatens to happen, she


plete its work and be prepared
to offer recommendations for
consideration by the full Senate
towards the beginning of the 2013
Session."
Gaetz said he was eager to read
the recommendations and looks
forward to working on the right
solution for Florida.
Compared to the rest of the
country, Florida has one of the
highest rates of uninsured and
some of the toughest eligibil-
ity requirements. As AP reports,
a family making $11,000 a year
earns too much and single resi-
dents are not covered. Under the
Medicaid expansion, the bulk


of those getting coverage will be
childless adults. Hospital execu-
tives, AP reports, have said ex-
pansion will reduce the amount
of money hospitals, insurers and
taxpayers spend covering the
uninsured by letting patients get
coordinated treatment when they
need it instead of waiting to go to
the emergency room.
As for what that could mean for
area residents, Jackson Hospital
spokesperson Rosie Smith said
the governor's decision to expand
Medicaid, "will help make our
community healthier for all."
The Florida Legislature's regular
session begins March 5.

Mrs. Carol A. Branch, age
48, a lifelong resident of
Sneads, FL passed away
late Tuesday night at her
home with husband Louie
Branch following a coura-
geous battle with kidney,
disease.
Carol was preceded in
death by her father, Carl
Burnham of Sneads, FL.
Carol was a wonderful
mother, daughter, sister,
and wife. Most importantly
she was a friend to all who
knew her. However her
most cherished title was
that of "Mimi" given by her
grandson Sammy who
loved her dearly. She was a
dedicated Registered Nurse
for several years until com-
plications from her kidney
disease arose. She was tal-
ented cross stitch artist and
won several awards for her
skills. She was also a won-
derful cook and one of the
ways she showed her love
was with her remarkable
dishes. Carol touched
many lives during her brief
presence; she will be deep-
ly missed by all as she joins
our lord and savior.
She is survived by her
husband of 12 years, Louie

"As the weather warms,
animals may be forced out

seek refuge in other places,
such has homes, trailers

away from the rising water.
Caution should be used
because of that, he said.

NTSB: Plane aborted
landing, hit pole
THOMSON, Ga. -Au-
thorities have identified
an Augusta surgeon as
being among five people
killed in the crash of a
private jet in eastern
Georgia.
McDuffie County
Coroner Foster Wiley
said Thursday that Dr.
Steven Roth, a vascular
surgeon who worked for
a medical practice called
the Vein Guys, died in
the crash Wednesday.
Two of Roth's co-work-
ers Lisa Volpitto and
Kim Davidson were
also identified among
the dead. Dr. Stephen
Davis of the practice's
clinic in Nashville,
Tenn., says Volpitto was
a nurse anesthetist and
Davidson worked as a
secretary.
The coroner says two
others who died have
not yet been identified.
Investigators say the jet
'aborted its landing and
struck a 60-foot utility
pole.

Biden urges action
on gun control
DANBURY, Conn.
-Vice President Joe
Biden sought to rally
support for the Obama
administration's gun
control proposals as he
spoke Thursday at a con-
ference on gun violence
being held not far from
the scene of December's
school massacre, saying
it fundamentally altered
the debate.
Biden acknowledged
gun control has tradi-
tionally been viewed as
the third rail of American
politics, recalling that
when President Barack
Obama asked him to
take the lead, the presi-
dent told him he didn't
have to do it if he didn't
want to.
"America has changed
on this issue," Biden
said at the conference
atWestern Connecticut
State University, which
the gunman once at-
tended. "There is a moral
price to be paid for
inaction."
Noting the courage
of the families of the
victims at Sandy Hook
Elementary in nearby
Newtown, Biden said
elected officials should
show political courage.
"We have to speak
for those 20 beautiful
children who died 69
days ago, 12 miles from
here," Biden said. "We
have to speak for the
voice of those six adults
who died trying to save
the children in their care
that day who can't speak
for themselves."

Flu shot offers poor
protection in elderly
ATLANTA It turns
out this year's flu shot
is doing a startlingly
dismal job of protecting
older people, the most
vulnerable age group.
The vaccine is proving
only 9 percent effective
in those 65 and older
against the harsh strain
of the flu that is pre-
dominant this season,
the Centers for Disease
Control and Prevention
said Thursday.
Health officials are
baffled as to why this is
so. But the findings help
explain why so many
older people have been
hospitalized with the flu


this year.
Despite the findings,
the CDC stood by its
recommendation that
everyone over 6 months
get flu shots, the elderly
included, because some
protection is better than
none, and because those
who are vaccinated and
still get sick may suffer
less severe symptoms.
"Year in and year out,
the vaccine is the best
protection we have,"
said CDC flu expert Dr.
Joseph Bresee.

Peterson screams,then gets 38 years for murder


The Associated Press

JOLIET, Ill. Drew Pe-
terson the swaggering
Chicago-area policeman
who gained notoriety after
his fourth wife vanished -
lost his characteristic cool
in court Thursday, scream-
ing out his innocence be-
fore a judge sentenced him
to 38 years in prison for the
murder of a previous wife.
"I did not kill Kathleen!"
Peterson shouted, leaning
into a courtroom micro-
phone and emphasizing
each of the five words.
Without missing a beat,
his dead wife's sister, Su-
san Doman, shouted back,
"Yes, you did! You liar!"
before the judge ordered
sheriff's deputies to remove
her from the courtroom.
For years, Peterson had
casually dismissed and
even joked about sugges-
tions he killed his third
wife, Kathleen Savio, or
that he was behind the dis-
appearance of his fourth
wife, Stacy Peterson.
His sudden explosion
of fury Thursday as he
stepped up to address
the judge who would
sentence him for Savio's
2004 death left spectators
gasping. Lead state pros-
ecutor James Glasgow


THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
In this 2009 photo, former Bolingbrook, III., police sergeant Drew Peterson arrives at the Will
County Courthouse in Joliet, III., for his arraignment on charges of first-degree murder in the
2004 death of his third wife Kathleen Savio.


said it exposed the real
Drew Peterson the one
more than capable of
murder.
"We all got an opportu-
nity to see a psychopath
reveal himself in open
court," Glasgow told re-
porters shortly after Thurs-
day's hearing. "That shrill
... screech.... That's the guy
that killed Kathy."
Illinois does not have
the. death penalty, and
the 59-year-old Peterson
had faced a maximum


60-year prison term. Judge
Edward Burmila gave him
four years' credit for time
he has served since his
2009 arrest.
After starting his state-
ment with the startling
scream, Peterson went on
for 30 more minutes, con-
tinuing in mostly hushed
tones, crying and trying to
regain his composure at
times. His voice quivered
and his hands were shak-
ing as he reached for a
glass of water.


"I loved Kathy. She was
a good mom," he said,
tearing up. "She did not
deserve to die. But she died
in an accident."
Savio's death was ini-
tially ruled an accident,
after neighbors found
the 40-year-old aspiring
nurse's body in a dry bath-
tub at home. It was Stacy
Peterson's 2007 disappear-
ance that prompted au-
thorities to take another
look at Savio's death and
eventually reclassify it


as an accident. Drew Pe-
terson is also a suspect
in the disappearance of
Stacy Peterson who
was 23-years-old when
she vanished but he
hasn' been charged in her
case.
Fascination nation-
wide with Drew Peterson
arose from speculation
he sought to use his law
enforcement exper-
tise to get away with
murder. Jurors convicted
him of Savio's murder in
September.
At times Thursday, Peter-
son seemed to wallow in
self-pity, telling the judge,
"I don't deserve this," and
that "America should be
outraged (by the injustice
of his conviction), but no-
body cares." Other times,
he seethed, blaming pros-
ecutors for what he called
"the largest railroad job
ever."
He told Glasgow that
the prosecutor could now
celebrate because he
had destroyed Peterson's
life. Minutes later, Peter-
son challenged Glasgow
to look him in the eyes.
Glasgow, who had been
taking notes, laid down
his pen, folded his arms
and looked straight back at
Peterson.


Police: Hotel altercation sparked Vegas shooting


The Associated Press

LAS VEGAS Bullets
were flying from a black
Range Rover at a gray
Maserati as the vehicles
raced toward a red light on
the Las Vegas Strip.
.Beneath the neon lights,
police say, the Maserati ran
the red light at one of the
Strip's busiest intersections
and smashed into a taxi
that exploded into flames
early Thursday, killing the
two people inside.
Three more cars and a
utility truck collided at the
crossroads home to Bel-
lagio, Caesars Palace and
Bally's, leaving at least six
more people injured as the
Range Rover sped off in the
predawn darkness.
The Maserati driver was
pronounced dead at a
hospital.
The dramatic scene that
more than one tourist com-
pared to something out of
a violent action movie set
off a frantic search for the
occupants of the Range
Rover and marked the lat-
est violent episode on the
Strip since the beginning
of the year.
Two people were criti-
cally wounded in a shoot-
ing at a parking garage on


black custom rims and
paper dealer ads in place
of license plates that
fled the scene about
4:20 a.m.
In Southern California,
the California Highway
Patrol alerted officers in
at least three counties to
be on the lookout for the
SUV
Las Vegas Police Sgt.
John Sheahan said the
Range Rover was last seen


near the Venetian resort
as it headed north from
the shooting scene on Las
Vegas Boulevard.

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
Police rope off the scene of a shooting and multi-car accident
on the Las Vegas Strip in Las Vegas early Thursday.


Feb. 6, and a tourist was
stabbed last Saturday in
an elevator at The Hotel at
Mandalay Bay.
Clark County Sheriff
Doug Gillespie told re-
porters several hours
after Thursday's attack
that it was sparked by
an argument in the valet
area of the nearby Aria
hotel-casino, and that the
violence at the intersec-
tion of LasVegas Boulevard
and. Flamingo Road did
not reflect the values of
Las Vegas residents or
visitors.
"What happened will
not be tolerated," Gillespie
said. He promised the


shooters would be "found
and prosecuted to the full
extent of the law.'
On the Strip, the fiery
rampage shocked tourists.
"This doesn't happen
where we come from, not
on this scale," said Mark
Thompson, who was visit-
ing from Manchester, Eng-

Claims for U.S. jobless


aid suggest modest hiring


The Associated Press

WASHINGTON The
number of Americans
seeking unemployment
benefits jumped 20,000
last week to a seasonally
adjusted 362,000, though
it remains at a level that
suggests slow but steady
improvement in the job
market.
The Labor Department
said Thursday that the
four-week average, a less
volatile measure, rose
8,000 to 360,750, the high-
est in six weeks. A depart-
ment spokesman said
heavy snowstorms in the
Northeast didn't affect the
total.
Applications for unem-
ployment benefits are a
proxy for layoffs. Even with
last week's jump, they have
trended downward recent-
ly. The four-week average
has declined 7.5 percent
since mid-November and
fell to a five-year low three
weeks ago.
Weekly applications
"continue to show no
sign of trending up," Jim
O'Sullivan, an economist
at High Frequency Eco-
nomics, wrote in a research
note. "That is a good sign
... consistent with the


recent pace in employ-
ment growth at least being
maintained."
Employers added an
average of 200,000 jobs a
month from November
through January. That was
up from about 150,000
in the previous three
months.
Last week's increase puts
applications for unem-
ployment benefits back
in the 360,000-to-390,000
range, where they have
fluctuated since early
last year. Since then, em-
ployers have added an
average of 181,000 jobs a
month.
In January, the economy
added 157,000 jobs. The
unemployment rate ticked
up to 7.9 percent from
7.8 percent in December.
Economists think the rate
will slowly decline if hir-
ing continues at last year's
monthly pace of 180,000.
The unemployment rate
fell 0.7 percentage point in
2012.
A total of 5.6 million
people received un-
employment benefits
in the week that ended
Feb. 2, the latest period
for which figures are avail-
able. That's about 300,000
fewer than in the previous


week. Some of those no
longer receiving unem-
ployment aid may now
be employed. But many
others have exhausted
the benefits available to
them.
The economy shrank
at an annual rate of 0.1
percent in the Octo-
ber-December quarter,
hurt by a sharp cut in
defense spending, few-
er exports and sluggish
growth in company stock-
piles. That was much
worse than the 3.1 percent
growth recorded in the
July-September period.

The Chipola Lady Indians soft-
ball team added two more wins
Wednesday over Middle Georgia,
sweeping a road doubleheader by
scores of 7-0 and 1-0.
The wins improved the Lady In-
dians to 13-2 on the season and ran
their winning streak up to 11 games.
In the first game, Chipola broke
open a scoreless tie with two runs
in the third inning thanks to an
RBI triple by Stephanie Garrels to
'score Alyssa Hathcoat and an RBI
groundout by Shannon Black to
score Garrels.
In the fourth inning, Hayley
Parker singled to score Jasmine
Tanksley to make it 3-0, and then
Megan Borak later added a two-
RBI triple to give Chipola a five-
run advantage.
Katie Harrison's two-run home
run in the top of the fifth rounded
out the scoring for the Lady Indi-
ans, who had six hits as a team.
EvaVoortman started in the circle
and got the win for Chipola, going
six innings and allowing no runs
on three hits, no walks, and three
strikeouts.
Kaitlin Hussey pitched a score-
less inning of relief, allowing just
one hit and no walks.
Parker led the offense with two
hits.
In, the second game, Chipola
overcame three defensive errors to
shut out Middle Georgia, 1-0, get-
ting a terrific start from freshman
Karissa Childs, who went six in-
nings and allowed five hits and no
walks, while striking out three.

shot against Pensacola.


BY DUSTIN KENT
dkent@jcfloridan.com:

The Chipola men's and
women's basketball teams
will finish up the regular sea-
son Saturday night in Pan-
ama City against Gulf Coast
State, with the women's game
the only one of the two with
postseason significance.
The No. 8 Lady Indians (23-
4 overall, 8-3 in the Panhan-
dle Conference) are tied with
No. 10 Gulf Coast State (23-4,
8-3) for second in the confer-
ence standings behind first-
place and No. 6 Northwest


Florida State (24-3, 9-3).
While all three teams have
already clinched state tour-
nament berths, the winner
of Saturday's game clinches a
share of the Panhandle Con-
ference championship, while
the other will have to settle
for the conference's third
seed and take on Mid-Florida
Conference champion State
College of Florida in the first
round of the state tourney.
Chipola has won both of
its regular season matchups
with Gulf Coast this season,
winning 75-72 in Panama
City on Jan. 19, and then


routing the Lady Commo-
dores 66-45 in Marianna on
Feb.5.
In that game, the Lady Indi-
ans' defense held Gulf Coast
to 29 percent shooting from
the field, 2-of-14 frqm the
three-point line, and forced
29 turnovers.
Gulf Coast hasn't lost since
then, however, taking wins
over Northwest Florida State,

Hornets
From Page 1B
The Panthers (23-8) come
in on a six-game winning
streak of their own, having
beaten the likes of Rick-
ards and East Gadsden
and fresh off a 60-33 first
round playoff win over the
Sneads Pirates.
Cottondale (14-14) beat
the Pirates 42-41 in the
District 3-1A champion-
ship game, and advanced
to the regional final round
with a 45-43 home win
over the Bozeman Bucks
on Tuesday.
But the challenge for
coach Chris Obert's Hor-
nets gets much larger Sat-
urday against a 'deep and
talented West Gadsden
team hungry to get back
to the state semifinals after
losing to Chipley there last
year, as well as to avenge an
80-79 loss to the Hornets in
Cottondale on Jan. 5.
"It will be tough; that's
a given," Obert said. "Any
time you play a team that
talented and you've got to
play at their place in a hos-
tile environment, you can't
expect it to be anything
other than tough. They
came up short at state last
year so they're motivated


to get back, and the game
we beat them earlier this
year gives them some extra
motivation.
"I know it will be a tough
task to go over there and
pull one out, but that's
why they play the game.
It's something we look for-
ward to, to be honest. We
wanted this opportunity,
so we embrace it."
While the Panthers are
surely motivated by the
loss in Cottondale this
season, so are the Hornets
after being eliminated by
West Gadsden 66-44 in the
playoffs last season.
That game was also in
Greensboro, and as usual
when they play in front of
the home crowd, the Pan-
thers came out victorious.
In the last two seasons,
only the 6A Leon Lions
have taken a win over West
Gadsden on the Panthers'
home court.
"It was a good environ-
ment last year, but we feel
like we've been in tougher
places to play," Obert said.
"We feel like our gym is a
tougher place to play than
theirs because I feel like
our crowd and our atmo-
sphere is second to none.
"But we've been (in
Greensboro) and that's
good because we've seen it


"Any time youplay a
team that talented and
you've got to play at
their place in a hostile
environment, you can't
expect it to be anything
other than tough."
Chris Obert,
Cottondale coach, on
facing East Gadsden
before. We feel like that's a
big help to us. We won't get
hit with the unexpected. If
they're better than us Sat-
urday night, then they're
just better than us. But as
far as where we've got to
play the game, that's not
as big of a concern as who
we're playing."
Currently ranked No. 3
in the state, West Gadsden
has been in the top five of
the 1A poll all season and
with good reason.
The Panthers returned
the majority of their top
players from last season's
final four team, includ-
ing top two scorers Bran-
don Shingles and Cha-
ris Fitzgerald, and top
rebounder and shot block-
er Marquis Brown.
Of all the teams that Cot-
tondale played this season,
Malone is perhaps the only
one with comparable ath-


leticism and depth as the
Panthers.
"They're as physically
talented as any team in
the state," Obert said of the
Panthers. "Shingles and
Fitzgerald are two of the
better players in the state,
and the Brown kid gives
them another dimension.
But Shingles is the one that
you really have to watch
out for. When he's knock-
ing down shots, they have
a chance to blow you out
quick. We have to be good
against him because of his
ability to hurt you from the
three-point line. Fitzgerald
is really dangerous and can
probably beat you in more
ways, but I think Shingles
is the more important guy
to stop."
Cottondale held Shingles
to 15 points in the regular
season matchup this year
four points under his sea-
son average with Fitzger-
ald leading the way with 22
points on 6-of-14 shooting
and 10-of-ll from the free
throw line.
For the Hornets, it was
Jerodd Blount's 36 points
that proved most crucial
in the win, but the 6-foot-3
senior has struggled to find
his shot in recent games,
shooting just 27 percent
from the field in the dis-


trict tournament and only
putting in 11 points in the
win over Bozeman after
averaging over 20 points
per game all season.
Obert said that if Cotton-
dale is going to have a re-
peat performance against
West Gadsden on Satur-
day, it will need a big effort
from its leading scorer.
"The thing with (Blount)
is I thought he had a great
game against Vernon, and
even though he struggled
at times against Graceville,
he came through late," the
coach said. "In the last two
games, he hasn't scored as
much, but that's a credit to
the other teams too. They
spend a lot of time focusing
on him and trying to take
him out of the game, which
allows others to step up.
"He's just got to be patient
and keep playing with con-
fidence. When he's open,
he's got to take his shots,
but also find opportunities
to create and try to get in
the lane and score in there
and get to the free throw
line as well. But there's no
question that (Blount) and
DJ (Roulhac) are probably
going to have to score a
little more than they have
in the last two games for us
to have a chance."
The Hornets have been


winning mostly with de-
fense of late, holding their
last four opponents to 47
pointspergame,whichalso
includes a double overtime
win over Graceville.
It will likely take another
stellar defensive effort
for Cottondale to have a
chance to win again, but
given the position the Hor-
nets were in going into the
postseason, the season
will likely be regarded as a
success regardless of Sat-
urday's outcome.
But that doesn't mean
the Hornets are content to
make this the end of the
line.
"We feel like we've prob-
ably exceeded a lot of peo-
ple's expectations," Obert
said. "The thing we've been
talking about is, Are we
satisfied? Are we full or are
we hungry? Do we want to
keep eating or are we just
satisfied?' I think we're still
hungry. As far as motiva-
tion, I don't think that will
be our issue.
"We never worry about
overconfidence because
we feel that we're just a
blue collar group of guys
who just work hard for ev-
erything we get. We're also
going over there to try to
win. That's the goal. If it's
not, then why go?"


Chipola

Middle Georgia had a
chance to tie or take the
lead in the bottom of the
sixth with a runner on
second with two outs, but


Childs got a strikeout to
end the threat.
Voortman came on in re-
lief in the seventh inning
'and retired the side in
order with three straight
groundouts to seal the
win.
The only run of the game


came in the top of the
fourth when Parker got a
two-out walk, and then
scored on an RBI double to
right field by Borak;
Garrels, Chandler Seay,
and Mya Anderson all had
two hits to lead Chipola,
while Parker walked twice


and scored the game's only
run.
Middle Georgia's Katie
Turner pitched a gem in
defeat, going all seven in-
nings and allowing just
the one run on seven
hits, two walks, and four
strikeouts.

NBA


Trade deadline features



only a few minor moves


The Associated Press

NEW'YORK The only
trade involving Dwight
Howard came last summer.
The potent scorers that
moved did so long ago.
There was no eye-catch-
ing activity left for dead-
line day, resulting in mi-
nor deals Thursday to the
disappointment of those
hoping for a frenzy.
Josh Smith stayed put
and the Boston Celtics'
core stayed together, leav-
ing J.J. Redick, dealt to
Milwaukee, as the biggest
name to be traded.
There were nine moves,
nothing approaching a
blockbuster and none to
jump-start the Lakers.
Players such as James
Harden and Rudy Gay were
traded far before the dead-
line, butwith teams perhaps
fearful of penalties for the
biggest spenders, Thursday
was mostly quiet.
"I don't think I've seen
fewer trade deadline deals,
ever," said Houston gen-
eral manager Daryl Morey,
who'completed two trades
Wednesday. "But I think it's
a one-year blip."
The Hawks held onto
Smith, and Utah kept both
Paul Millsap and Al Jeffer-
son on a day when much
attention was focused on
both situations, since those
players have value and
could leave their teams this
summer as free agents.
The long-shot deals nev-
er materialized. Howard
remained in Los Angeles,
as Lakers general manager
Mitch Kupchak repeat-
edly said would happen.
Howard's unhappiness
and struggles since he was
acquired from Orlando fu-
eled speculation that the
Lakers might move him
_before possibly losing him


for nothing as a free agent.
Kevin Garnett and Paul
Pierce will continue wear-
ing Celtic green, as will
Rajon Rondo when he's
healthy enough to put on a
uniform again.
The Celtics did make
one deal, acquiring guard
Jordan Crawford from the
Wizards for center Jason
Collins and injured guard
Leandro Barbosa.
Those were the types of
trades that were left after
the big names that were
available had already been
moved. Oklahoma City
sent All-Star Harden to
Houston the preseason,
fearing it couldn't pay what
last season's top sixth man
would want after already
giving lucrative long-term


deals to Kevin Durant and
Russell Westbrook.
Golden State sent for-
ward Jeremy Tyler to At-
lanta and guard Charles
Jenkins to Philadelphia
in separate deals, slicing
more than $1.5 million off
its payroll after beginning
the day about $1.2 million
over the luxury tax.
Rebuilding after trading
Howard, the Magic decid-
ed Redick wasn't in their
plans while averaging ca-
reer highs in points (15.1)
and field goal percentage
(45.0). He was traded along
with center Gustavo Ayon
and reserve point guard
Ish Smith to the Bucks in
exchange for guards Do-
ron Lamb and Beno Udrih,
and forward Tobias Harris.


Is Your Pillow The Problem?
(Carver, MN) According to the Mayo Clinic, Sleep
Deprivation is a growing problem with over 28% of
adults reporting they got fewer than 6 hours of sleep a
night. Research shows that chronic lack of sleep is also
linked to Colds and Flu, Diabetes, Mental Health
\ Issues, and even Obesity. Michael J. Lindell, Inventor,
SManufacturer and CEO of MyPillow, Inc. may have
found the solution to getting a better night's sleep. "Pil-.
^lows are'the Problem," suggests Lindell who spent
years searching for the perfect pillow that ultimately
led to the creation of the highly successful "MyPillow@
Mm -- Premium" brand of pillows. "Most pillows are de-
signed to break down" says Lindell, "I would wake up
in the morning with a sore arm, my neck would hurt,
fingers would be numb and I would toss and turn all
night not knowing why. I tried many different pillows
on the market and none of them worked so I started
researching pillows and sleep disorders and became
adamant about creating "The World's Most Comfort-
P R E M I U M able Pillow." MyPillowPremium uses a Patented
three piece Interlocking Fill that Stays Cool, is Healthy
and Conforms to your exact individual needs regardless
of sleep position. It comes with a full 10-Year War-
Sranty and 60 night Comfort Guarantee. "MyPillow
S1Premium is dust mite resistant, non-allergenic, and you
BBm t,0USA YEAR can wash and dry it as easily as your favorite pair of
wAuRRAr blue jeans," says Lindell.

Discover what over 1 Million people already know!

Michael J. Lindell spent the last eight years selling MyPillow Premium face-to-face at
fairs, expos and events and has received thousands of testimonials (refer to mypillow.com)
from satisfied customers regarding how MyPillow Premiumn has changed their lives and
helped them get the most restful, comfortable, deep healing sleep of their lives. "To see the
difference this has made in people's lives is nothing short of a Miracle," According to
WebMD, some of the Benefits of a "Good Night's Sleep" may help reduce the risk of:

Colds and Flu
Heart Disease
Diabetes
Obesity
Drowsy Driving A '..
Mental Degradation

"Many people, like me, are in search of a pillow that will help them sleep comfortably,"
says Lindell. "At night, you may sleep with your arm under your head for support, flip-flop
from side-to-side, flip your pillow over because of overheating, basically robbing yourself
of highly beneficial REM sleep. Even if you are asleep for a full night, if your vertebrae
in your neck are not aligned and fully supported, you may not be getting the deep healing
sleep we need to be at our best." Lindell is so confident MyPillowPremium will help you
that he's offering an unprecedented 60-Day Money Back Guarantee in addition to the 10-
Year Warranty. "I know people are tired of paying money for pillows that simply don't
work," says Lindell, "that's why we give every customer 60 nights to sleep on it to make
sure it works for them." MyPillowPremium comes in 4 different lofts, has an A+ rating
with the Better Business Bureau and does all of its manufacturing here in the USA. "I truly
believe MyPillowis the best pillow in the world and that if everyone had one they
would get better sleep and the world would be a much better place."

Indians
L From Page 1B
Having won the season series against
the Lady Raiders, the Lady Commo-
dores would get the top seed from the
Panhandle in the state tournament
should they win Saturday, meaning
they would open tournament play
with the third-place team from the
Mid-Florida Conference.
The best the Lady Indians can do is
get the No. 2 seed with a win to play
the Southern Conference runner-ups
in the opening round at state.
On the men's side, there is signifi-
cantly less at stake, with the two state
tournament bids from the Panhandle
already locked up for runner-up No.
11 Chipola (25-3, 8-3) and league
champion No. 4 Northwest Florida


Malone
From Page 1B
and Tigers coach Steven
Welch said that his team
is ready to get over the
hump this time and get to
Lakeland.
"We're very excited about
it. It's kind of the same deal
as last year, except that last
year was the first time we
had it," the coach said of
his players and the chance
to go to state. "Hopefully,
we're more equipped to
deal with it now. We've
worked hard all year for
this opportunity, so hope-
fully we can embrace it
instead of letting it intimi-
date us."
Malone (25-2) has been
the most dominant team
in 1A all season, winning
all 19 of.its games against
1A competition, with only
one of those wins coming
by single digits.
But the Tigers, who de-
feated Chipley 61-50 in
Tuesday's regional semi-
final game, will have one
of its biggest challenges of
the season in trying to stop
Holmes County's 6-foot-
10 All-American big man
Chris Walker, who scored
34 points in the Blue Dev-
ils' win over Paxton on
Tuesday.
The University of Florida
signee has never beaten
Malone in his high school
career, losing at the buzzer
to the Tigers in last year's
regional semifinal playoff
game, and falling again
in a preseason game this
season.
However, Welch said that
when he sees Walker now,
he sees a great player who
has put it all together and
is even more difficult to
deal with than he has been
in seasons past.
"I've seen Chris since he
was a freshman and we've
played him all four years,
and he went from a kid
who could just dunk and
block shots, to being a guy
who could put it on the
floor a little bit and step
out and shoot, to last year
getting better defensively,
and this year you see that
he can just do everything,"
he said. "He has really de-
veloped as a player. When
he decides to take over
a game, he gives them a
chance any night against
anyone. He's that good."
Malone's previous suc-
cess against Holmes
County comes at least in
part in being the rare 1A
team'with a player capable
of holding his own athleti-
cally with Walker in the ex-
plosive 6-foot-6 Ty Baker,
who last season had two
of his best career games
against the Blue Devils,
scoring 28 points in a pre-
season matchup and 22 in
a regular season win over
Holmes County.
"Ty really does sort of
take it personal when we
play them," Welch said. "All
he hears is, 'What are you
going to do with Chris?
How can you stop Chris?'
He does take that per-
sonal. He's done a nice job
against them every time
we've played them, and
he gives us a chance to not
double team as much as a
lot of other teams have to
against Chris. He definitely
takes the challenge and
usually responds that way.
I hope he can again."
T Just as key for Malone on
Saturday will be the play
of Ty's brother, Chai Baker,
who was held to just one
point in the Tigers' 50-48
playoff win over Holmes


State (25-2, 11-1), and Gulf Coast State
(19-9, 4-7) out of contention.
Chipola's first-round state tourna-
ment matchup is already set against
Polk State, leaving little more than
pride and bragging rights on the line
Saturday.
The Indians will again be without
starting sophomore point guard Terel
Hall, who has missed the last two
games while nursing a knee injury.
Chipola has won seven of its last
eight games after a 1-2 start to confer-
ence play, with the only loss coming
64-62 in Niceville against the Raiders.
The second half of the league sched-
ule hasn't been as kind to the Commo-
dores, who started out 2-1 but have lost
six of eight since and four in a row.
The men's game will tip off at 7:30
p.m., preceded by the women's game
at 5:30 p.m.


County last season, as the
Blue Devils employed a
box-and-one defense that
saw Jacky Miles shadow
Chai Baker wherever he
went and make life diffi-
cult on the sharpshooting
guard.
Chai Baker's regional
semifinal performance
Tuesday was far superior
to that one, as he poured
in 27 points, including 12
in the fourth quarter, to
deliver the knockout blow
to Chipley.
Malone hopes to have a
similar effort from its lead-
ing scorer on Saturday.
"As Chai goes, we go in
a lot of ways," Welch said.
"When he's able to get go-
ing, it makes everything
else easier for the rest of
the guys. He did a great job
against Chipley. We talk a
lot about taking good shots
and when it's not there
finding a teammate and
making sure they get easy
opportunities.
"That's where Chai has
improved the most. He
can obviously shoot it, but
now he's getting better at
making decisions off the
dribble and not just shoot-
ing threes, though we don't
feel bad when he shoots
them at all."
In last year's win over


Holmes County, Malone
had to rally from a 15-
point halftime deficit to
win on a buzzer-beater by
Chris Murff.
With the game in Bonifay
this time, the Tigers would.
be wise to avoid such an
early deficit, though Welch
said he expects his players
to be even more focused
with the game being away
from home.
"I think our senses will
be tuned into that as far as
knowing that we've got to
pull together because road
game are a lot tougher," he
said. "We've all got to be on
the same page. One thing
we talked about is mental
toughness. We've got to go
over there and if they get
off to a hot start be able to
withstand that.
"I think (coming back
against Holmes County
last year) gives us some
confidence that we can do
that if we have to, but we're
a different team now and
they're a lot different. We
know they're a dangerous
team and we know how
dangerous Chris is. It will
just come down to making
plays and who controls the
boards at each end."
The coach said that he
felt his players came out a
bit tight against Chipley in


MARKSKINNER/FLORIDAN

the early going, and while
being on the road might
loosen the team up a bit,
the pressure of being the
favorite is still present with
the Tigers, and it's a pres-
sure that they embrace.
"The pressure is there.
This has been our goal
from the start of the sea-
son to try to make a run at
this and we're right here,"
Welch said. "We can't do
any better than we've
done. We won district, got
a home playoff game and
won that, and we're in as
good a shape as we can
be in. It's just a matter of
going out and seizing the
opportunity."

Mcllroy, Woods


fall in first round


The Associated Press

MARANA, Ariz. The
snow is gone from the
Match Play Champion-
ship, and so are Rory Mc-
Ilroy and Tiger Woods.
In a stunning conclusion
to what already is a bizarre
week on Dove Mountain,
Shane Lowry of Ireland
made a 4-foot par putt on
the 18th hole to eliminate
Rory Mcllroy in the open-
inground of golf's most un-
predictable tournament.
It was the third time in
the last four years the No.
1 seed went home after
one round.
Moments later, Charles
Howell III finished off a
fabulous round in cold
conditions by defeating
Woods on the 17th hole.
Howell, who had not
faced Woods in match
play since losing to him in
the third round of the 1996


U.S. Amateur, played bo-
gey-free on a course that
still had patches of snow
and ice after being cleared
Thursday morning.
The match was all
square when Howell hit a
wedge that stopped inch-
es from the cup on the
15th hole for a conceded
birdie. Then, he holed a
25-foot birdie putt on the
16th and went 2 up when
Woods badly missed a 12-
foot birdie putt.
"I had nothing to lose,"
said Howell, who hasn't
qualified for this World
Golf Championship in
five years.
The final matches were
played in near dark-
ness, and they could have
stopped after 15 holes.
Woods wanted to play on,
though Howell had the mo-
mentum. Woods was 2 un-
der for the day, and neither
of them made a bogey

Annie's Mailbox


Dear Annie: My daughter hasn't spoken
to me in 20 years. "Linda" is 45 years old
and has been married since around 1993.
I wasn't invited to her wedding, so I am
not sure. I think she received a master's
degree, but I wasn't invited to her gradua-
tion, so I'm not sure of that, either.
Linda's mother left me for her married
lover when our daughter was 6. Instead of
taking custody, I felt it best for her mother
to raise her, which was a big mistake. My
current wife enjoyed a good relationship
with Linda. We visited her during her col-
lege years and gave her money to spend.
But once she finished her degree, we nev-
er heard from her again. She didn't reply
to our phone calls, letters or emails.
Linda's brother informed me that she
and her husband have four children we
have never met. The oldest must be about
16 and the youngest about 3, but I do not
know any of their birthdates. When I tried


Bridge

Louis Nizer, a noted trial lawyer who died in 1994,
said, "When a man points a finger at someone else,
he should remember that four of his fingers are
pointing at himself."
In bridge, points those for high cards are very
important. If it helps, count points on your fingers
under the table, where no one else can see. Or use
your fingers and toes!
Often, tracking high-card points will be invaluable
for finding the right play. In this deal, how should
East plan the defense against four spades after West
leads the diamond jack?
South's advance of one spade showed zero to 8
points. (With 9 to 11, he would have jumped to
two spades, and with 12 or more, he would have
cue-bid two diamonds.) When North raised to two
spades, he was saying that game was still possible. So
he was promising 18 or 19 points. Now South, with
six points and a fifth trump, was happy to jump to
game.
East could see three tricks: the spade king and
two diamonds. But the bidding suggested that
South would have the heart king and at least one of
the major-suit queens. If South had the spade queen,
East had to hope his side would get a third-round
heart trick. But if South had the heart queen, a sec-
ond trump trick could be promoted.
East won the first trick with the diamond queen (in
case West's jack was a singleton), cashed the diamond
king, and carefully continued with the diamond six.
West saw what was required, ruffing with his spade
queen. Now the contract had to fail.


to find out why she stopped all contact,
the only thing she said was, "Whatever
the reason that you think it is."
Linda was trained as a family counselor.
What happened in her training that would
lead her to refuse a relationship with her
own father? The divorce wasn't my idea,
so why am I left out in the cold?
FATHER WHO CAN'T SEE HIS
CHILD

Dear Father This has nothing to do
with Linda's training. More likely, it is
some grudge she has been holding onto
for years. Since you are in contact with
your son and he is in touch with his sis-
ter, ask him to act as your intermediary.
Have him tell Linda that you are sorry for
anything you may have done that has cre-
ated this estrangement, and you want to
know how to reconcile. We hope she is
responsive.

ENTERTINlVIENT


Horoscope
PISCES (Feb. 20-March
20) Lounging in a cozy
easy chair could have a
strong appeal for you, yet if
you fail to be at least a tad
productive, you're likely to
feel guilty.
ARIES (March 21-April
19) Even though you
won't be putting on any
pretenses, the persona you
present is likely to be more
dramatic than usual.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20)
You can't help but suc-
ceed in situations where
you are motivated to do
good things and bring joy
to others.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20)
You're not going to find
a better day to promote a
cause in which you truly
believe.
CANCER (June 21-July
22) If you're prepared to
give in order to get, most of
your material affairs should
work out to your benefit.
LEO (July23-Aug. 22) -It
isn't likely that you will shy
away from any challenges.
In fact, you'll welcome sit-
uiations that are much too
trying for others.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
-You'll get far more out of
being helpful than merely
feathering your own nest.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23)
There's no reason why
you shouldn't be hope-
ful regarding the outcome
of events, because you're
presently in a lucky cycle.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov.
22) You're not likely to
seek out competition, but
you'll not duck any either.
Should a strong competi-
tor challenge you, you'll be
a tough cookie to contend
with.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-
Dec. 21) If you view
things from a positive per-
spective, your faith.will
work wonders. Events will
turn out the way you envi-
sion them.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan.
19) Joint ventures hold
far more promise for you
than independent endeav-
ors at this time. However,
this is true only if you're
teamed up with someone
of equal talent.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb.
19) Moderation is the
key to success, so do your
best to play everything
down the middle. Don't be
too aggressive or passive.

Heyward back on track with Braves


The Associated Press

KISSIMMEE, Fla. Ja-
son Heyward has already
filmed a TV commercial
this spring with none oth-
er than Hank Aaron.
On this day, the J-HeyKid
is changing into his white
Atlanta Braves uniform for
yet another photo shoot.
Heyward is in demand
- again and better get
used to it. With the retire-
ment of Chipper Jones,
the big guy in right field is
poised to take over as the
face of the franchise.
"It's sort of a new team,"
Heyward said Thursday,
before heading out to take
care of his latest obliga-
tion. "It's a new team that's
going to have some fun
this season."
A year ago, he came into
spring training facing ma-
jor questions after a hugely


disappointing second sea-
son. But Heyward insisted


all along that
he merely
needed to
stay healthy
to live up to
thepotential
he showed
as a rookie


Boy, was he right.
Heyward played in 158
games, helping the Braves
claim an NL wild card by
hitting .269 with 27 hom-
ers, 82 RBIs and 21 stolen
bases.
A more important num-
ber is 23.
That's Heyward's age,
signaling a player who
is only beginning to tap
into his potential. The
bandwagon is tarting to
get crowded, much like it
was in 2010 when he hit a
three-run homer the first


time he stepped to the
plate in the big leagues.
None of that matters to
Heyward, who insists he's
never paid much attention
to what's being said beyond
the field both the flatter-
ing and not so flattering.
"I don't worry about
any of the outside stuff,"
he said, one day before
the Braves' spring opener
against the defending AL
champion Detroit Tigers.
"The clubhouse is where it
counts, man. Besides, I'm
always going to be my big-
gest critic. But at the end
of the day, you've got to be
healthy. I can't stress that
enough. You've got to be
healthy to play games and
get the most out of your-
self. That's what I was most
proud of last year: being
able to play 158 times."
His teammates are im-
pressed with the way he


bounced back, responding
in the best way possible to
all those who questioned if
he was a one-year wonder.
"I was so happy for him,"
second baseman Dan Ug-
gla said. "Everybody was
kind of riding his butt af-
ter that second year."
Indeed, it was quite a
comedown from Heyward's
rookie season, when he was
hailed by Aaron as just the
sort of player who would
lure more African-Ameri-
cans back to baseball.
"His face was every-
where TV, billboards,
everywhere you can think
to put it, they put it," Ug-
gla recalled. "That's a lot
of pressure to put on a
21-year-old. To see him
bounce back and really
carry us much of the sea-
son ... that shows a lot
about his character and
the person he is."


The Associated Press

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla.
There are two certain-
ties heading into the Day-
tona 500: Kevin Harvick is
the favorite, and no one
is sure what
the action
will look like
in the "Great
American
Race."
Harvickre-
mained per- Busch
fect through
Speedweeks on Thursday
by winning the first of two
150-mile Budweiser Duel
qualifying races, and the
victory has positioned him
as the top pick to win NAS-
CAR's version of the Super
Bowl.
Being labeled the favor-
ite is the last thing the 2007
Daytona 500 winner want-
ed headed into Sunday's
season-opener.
"We like to be the lame-
duck underdog. That's
what we're shooting for,"
Harvick said.
Harvick is a perfect 2
for 2 at Daytona Interna-
tional Speedway. He also
won an exhibition race
last weekend. This strong
start comes at a time
when Harvick has found a
balance in his life with the
addition of son, Keelan,
who was born last Jut,
and as he heads into his
final season with Richard
Childress Racing. Har-
vick has already decided
to move to Stewart-Haas
Racing in 2014.
"We've been fortunate to
win the first two races of
Speedweeks. We've just got
to keep a level head on our
shoulders, not get too high
over what we've done, just
do the same things that
we've done," he said. "If
it's meant to be, it's meant
to be. I think we definitely
have the car and team to
be in contention to do
that,"
But nobody is quite sure
what the 500 will look like
with NASCAR's new Gen-
6 race car. Sunday's race
will go off with a full 43-car
field,'double the amount of
cars that ran in Thursday's
qualifying races. There
were 19 cars in last Satur-
day's exhibition.
Kyle Busch, winner of the
second duel,believes more
cars on the track will create
a much different race than
what fans have seen so far.
All three races at Speed-
weeks to date have lacked
much action as drivers
continue to learn the new
cars and how it reacts in
traffic and different aero-
dynamic situations.
"With more cars out
there, we might see it be
a little bit different come
Sunday," Busch said.
"There were half the field
in each race, obviously.
There's going to be twice as
many good cars, twice as
many middle of the pack
cars, twice as many back
of the pack cars. If you can
get your car handling, driv-
ing, feeling good, you'll be
able'to be one of the guys
that's up front."
Is Busch, who was
Wrecked out of last week's


exhibition just 15 laps
into the race, one of those
guys?
"I feel that's where we're
at," Busch said. "That's an
added bonus for us right
now."
Bisch gave Toyota its
first victory of Speedweeks
and snapped Chevrolet's
dominance. Harvick took
the new Chevrolet SS to
Victory Lane twice, and
Danica Patrick put it on
the Daytona 500 pole in
time trials.
Busch held off Kasey
Kahne, in a Chevrolet,
and learned the driver out
front is in the strongest
position.
"It's hard to pass the
leader," said Busch. "Stay
out front. When you get
out front, you can hold ev-
eryone off."
But Kahne, who settled
for second, said timing
will be critical and nobody
is sure just yet what move
will be needed to win the
Daytona 500.
"I think it's tough be-
cause you don't know
when you get that push.
You don't know when it
plays into your time," said
Kahne, who never got
close enough to Busch
to take a solid shot at the
win. "I think you need to
be ready at any time to
get to the front, to second,
to third, try to move up. I
don't think waiting till the
last lap is a ticket the way
things are right now."
And Kahne wasn't ready
to give Harvick the win in
the big race, either.
"I think Kevin looks re-
ally good," he said. "He's
got this place figured out. I
think he can be beat, yeah.
There's a few of us in the
second race who had re-
ally good cars, and I could
move around really well,
similar to what Harvick did
in the first race."
In the first race, Harvick
held off Greg Biffle over a
four-lap sprint to win. Har-
vick and Biffle also went 1-.
2 in last Saturday night's
exhibition race.
The starting field for the
Daytona 500 is set by the
results from the pair of
60-lap qualifiers, but Pat-
rick held onto the pole by
running a safe race in the
first qualifier. The first
woman to win a pole at
NASCAR's top level, Pat-
rick earned the top start-
ing spot in time trials last
weekend.
She started first in the
first qualifier, raced a bit
early, then faded back to
run a conservative race
and ensure she'll start first.
in the 500.
"I hate coming to the end
like that and just lagging
back," she said. "That's not
fun. But it's also really ig-
norant to go drive up into
the pack and be part of an
accident for absolutely no
reason. You're really not go-
ing to learn much there."
Patrick wound up 17th
out of 23 cars.
"What I really feel like I
need to do is go down to
the Harvick bus and see
what he's doing," she said.
"He's got it going on down
here."
