Chipola celebrates Black History Month


BY DEBORAH BUCKHALTER
dbuckhalter@jcfloridan.com
rainy night could not dampen the spirits of those who came out
to celebrate Black History Month with the Black Student Union
at Chipola College on Friday evening. A crowd of more tha n 100
people gathered Friday night on the Chipola College campus for the
'annual Black History Month Celebration put on by the school's Black
Student Union.


Presided over by BSU Presi-
dent Jessica McCalister, the
gathering included music, a
dramatic reading, a history
quiz, dinner, door prizes, and
an enthusiastic message from
the keynote speaker, the Rev. O.
Jermaine Simmons.
He spoke about the impor-
tance of digging to learn history


for oneself rather than relying
on someone else to spoon
feed it, with perhaps their
own interpretation in play.
He said it is also vital to pass
on life-knowledge to future
generations, and that men
should lead the way as heads

Local to

appear on

cop drama
BY DEBORAH BUCKHALTER
dbuckhalter@jcfloridan.com
An actor who grew up in
Sneads will appear in an up-
coming episode of TNT's hit
drama Southland, taking one
more step in a steady climb
toward potential stardom.
Lee Simpson, 29, will be in
the Wednesday, Feb. 27, epi-
sode of "Southland." It airs
on TNT a't 10 p.m. eastern,
9 p.m. central. The show is a
police drama set in Los An-
geles. Simpson plays a small-
time criminal nicknamed
"Road Runner" because of
the character's speed on the
run and ability to often es-
cape capture.
Simpson has been living in
Hollywood for seven years
and makes his living solely
as an actor or in some capac-
ity related to television or
the entertainment industry
in general. He works consis-
tently either in front of the
camera, on sets as a stand-
in during rehearsals, or per-
forming other functions in

FCAT 2.0 Writing assessment will be administered Tuesday


Scores play part
in school grade
calculations
From staff reports

Jackson County. Super-
intendent of Schools Steve
Benton recently sent a let-
ter to parents and guard-


ians notifying them that
FCAT 2.0 Writing will be
administered to students
in grades 4, 8 and 10 on
Tuesday.
The state-required writ-
ing assessment is admin-
istered in one 60-minute
session in which students
write an essay in response
to a prompt. Later this


spring, students will re-
ceive their writing score,
on a 1-6-point scale.
While there is no "pass-
ing" score for FCAT 2.0
Writing, a recent revision
to State Board of Educa-
tion Rule established that
the percentage of students
scoring 3.5 or above on
Tuesday's assessment will


be used as a component in
calculating school grades.
With that in mind, Ben-
ton's letter suggests visiting
http://fcat.fldoe.org/writ-
ing-prompts.asp to access
writing prompt descrip-
tions and scoring guides
with sample essays.
Parents and guardians
are asked to review the


following policies before
testing:
If your student is found
with any electronic devices
including, but not limited
to cell phones and smart
phones, at anytime during
testing, including bath-
room breaks, his or her test
will be invalidated. The
best practice is for students


to leave devices at home or
in their lockers on the day
of testing.
The test includes a Test-
ing Rules Acknowledg-
ment that reads, "I under-
stand the testing rules that
were just read to me. If I
do not follow these rules,

Looking forward


to fun in the sun


It's getting near the
time of year when the
beaches of North-
west Florida begin to get
crowded. During this
time of year, I always
begin to realize that we
have some of the most
beautiful beaches in the
world right here in our
own back yard and that
thousands of people from
various parts of the world
are about to enjoy them.
Every year I promise to
spend much more tihe
relaxing and enjoying our
outstanding beaches.
This time of the year
also brings many people
from across the country
for Spring break. I love
our young people, but I
hope that this year some
of them would consider
handling our beaches
with more care.
A large portion of
these young people are
studying to be doctors,
lawyers, teachers, ac-
countants and possibly
political leaders in the fu-
ture of our country. How-
ever, some of our young
people seem to plan this
special time of the year
to be as raunchy, wild,
unruly, mischievous and
irreverent as possible.


Some of our normally de-
cent young men seem to
plan on drinking enough
to build ip
the nerve to
do some-
thing stupid
and out of
character.
Thomas Many of
Vincent the young
Murphy women put
themselves
in vulnerable positions
by indulging in drinking
and experimenting with
drugs. This type of mix-
ture, along with those in
the crowds who already
have criminal records
and bad intentions, and
you have chances for
volatile situations. There
are times that a few days
of fun and excitement
can lead to a tough life
with children in the
picture.
Maybe this year, there
will be young people on
our beaches who enjoy
good clean fun in the
sun. Thanks to the work-
ers who fix the broken
doors, clean up the
broken glass and groom
our beaches. After Spring
break, we can look for a
great year at the beaches
of Northwest Florida.


Ken and Vicky Ferguson
of Dallas, Georgia are pleased
to announce the engagement

Florida Voices


Businesses



don't pay taxes
Business tax cuts and corporate-recruiting incen-
tives will be prominent policy issues for the
Legislature this year.
For one, the mainstream media's reporters will make
them so; they hate both with a passion.
Lawmakers are also targeting these topics. Demo-
crat legislators already are positioning themselves as
potential obstructionists to Gov. Rick Scott's priority to
eliminate Florida's sales tax on machinery and equip-
ment. It's valued as a $140 million tax cut.
And now that Republicans no longer have a superma-
jority in the House, Scott will need Democrats' votes to
eliminate the sales tax.
Predictably, the Democrats see an opportunity to
make Scott beg and grovel. The governor is heading
into the next election cycle, and you can bet Demo-
crats are going to do whatever they can to derail Scott's
record.
Scott's pitch is the elimination of this tax will help
make Florida more attractive to manufacturers. And,
duh, if Florida can attract more manufacturers, there
will be more jobs.
Some Democrats and the profit-hating media see this
tax cut primarily as a sop to a special interest. Indeed,
whenever you say "tax cut" in Washington or Tallahas-
see, there is always a loud chorus whining how cutting
taxes and tax rates will "cost" government.
As they see it, the state apparatus is the loser. Tax cuts
mean lost revenue must be made up by taxing someone
else.
What they don't see is the concept from the other
side. That lowering taxes is a winner for the economy,
the state and the taxpayer, whether that taxpayer is a
corporation or individual. As Steve Forbes often tells his
audiences, taxes are a cost, just as paper and laptops
are. And as the old saw goes, the more you tax some-
thing, the less of it you get.
The anti-tax cutters also are not convinced that lower
tax rates or the elimination of a tax will lead to greater
tax collections that replace and surpass what was given
up.
It's a mystery why the following is so difficult to envi-
sion: Eliminate the machinery sales tax, and the tax-
payer be it company or individual will be able to
keep more of his money (keyword: "his," not the state's).
And he, not Tallahassee or Washington, will be able to
decide how best to put his capital to uses that benefit
him and others. This is what capitalism is all about
helping each other with free, peaceful, fair trade be-
tween two parties. That trade, in turn, fuels more trade,
more economic activity. And it leaves out the govern-
ment middle man, the bureaucracy that takes its slice
of the tax and then redistributes what's left.
Although it makes sense to say those government
workers keep the economy going when they spend
their wages, they're not creating wealth. They're toll tak-
ers and redistributors.
Manufacturers, on the other hand, are wealth cre-
ators, especially if they are selling and shipping their
products across state lines. In those instances, every
time a Florida manufacturer makes a sale, say, in
Georgia or Alabama, the buyer is sending new money
into Florida. It's adding to the business' and the state's
wealth.
Lawmakers often also seem to forget, in the case of
business taxes, that businesses don't pay taxes. They
pass the cost of all taxation onto their customers in the
prices of the goods and services they sell.
That's the concept that should be reiterated in Tal-
lahassee this spring when the Legislature is in session.
Businesses don't pay taxes, consumers do.
Or think of it this way: Compare two states one
with a sales tax on machinery and one without. Then
do the math and the analysis. The results should be
obvious. The manufacturer that isn't required to pay a
machinery sales tax will have more capital and be more
competitive than the one paying the tax.
This is really an old story. But, unfortunately, it must
be told like Aesop's Fables again and again. Unlike
a fable, though, this story is real and has been shown
and proven many times. Dr. Arthur-Laffer and Stephen
Moore the former a Milton Friedman protege, the
latter a longtime economist and economics journalist
have shown many times in their book, "Rich States,
Poor States," what should be intuitive: States with fall-
ing tax burdens always outperform and have higher
and faster growing personal incomes than states with
rising tax burdens.
What's more, Laffer and Moore provide a clear road
map for having a healthy economy with their "10 Gold-
en Rules of Effective Taxation." If only every lawmaker
would live by the Golden Rules.
Few can argue with Gov. Rick Scott's agenda. It's the
same one he promised in his 2010 election campaign:
improve Florida's business climate to attract jobs and
lower the cost of government. Scott has since added
improving Florida's schools and making college more
affordable.
In his quest to attract companies and improve the cli-
mate for job creation, the one area we differ with Scott
is his support of Enterprise Florida, the public-private
corporation that helps recruit companies to Florida.
Scott has proposed in his 2013-2014 budget to
increase the state's economic development spending
from $111 million to $278 million. Although it is unclear
how much of that is earmarked toward corporate
incentives and tax breaks, however much it is is too


much. It's corporate welfare, and it's morally wrong. No
business deserves an unearned benefit.

Smartest phone can't find life's sweet spot


A s we get pulled in so many
directions each day, it's easy
o think that technology is the
holy grail, an organizing tool to give
our lives a roadmap, to help us mul-
titask and to connect us to everyone,
near and far.
But is that really the case?
I have been pondering whether
many of us are losing track of the
need to "stop and smell the roses," as
the saying goes.
Technology is a wonderful con-
necting toy, and we have many such
gimmicks to choose from desktop
and laptop computers, mobile de-
vices, tablets, you name it. Most of us
have several.
But what's happened to the idea
of just turning away from all of that
technology and relishing the time
we have with those around us? Or,
heaven forbid, just being by our-
selves for a while and thinking?
As part of an interactive-entertain-
ment class that I teach in my digital
media courses at UCF, we some-
times discuss a reality-to-virtuality
continuum graph. It demonstrates
that our imaginations can find
stimulation along a range of physi-
cal to virtual experiences. Alongside
physical experiences, like theme
parks and magic shows, and virtual
experiences, including films, and
even the mixture of both, which we
may call "augmented reality," there


is a spot we may refer to as "lucid
dreaming."
When students
consider that, they
may laugh and move
on. But lucid dream-
ing may be the most
intriguing spot on
Eileen that continuum. For
Smith it's the one place
where we as humans
release ourselves
from technology, conventions and
social norms and just think. We
allow our brains to disconnect with
deadlines and responsibilities and
just take us wherever our imagina-
tion may go.
In my mind, the value of wander-
ing through that imaginary space
is the realization that we only go
through life once. It's worth ask-
ing ourselves if we are using that
newest technology we've become so
attached to, is it helping to make that
one trip through life richer, more
meaningful, more important to our
journey? Not usually.
Too often, we use that technology
just to fill time, as though we have
time to spare. We don't. We don't
know how much time we have left in
life. Consider the Tim McGraw song
that reminds listeners to "Live like
you were dying."
Does that seem morbid? I don't
mean it to be. I'm an optimist, but


I'm increasingly struck by a discon-
nect I often see. In restaurants,
sometimes folks share a meal but
focus on their cell phones instead of
with one another.
A news program recently reported
about young women who agreed to
lock away their phones and iPads
for two weeks. Doing so nearly
devastated them. They described
going through withdrawal, feeling
as though they couldn't function
properly.
But, then, something happened.
They started living in the moment,
talking to the people around them,
experiencing what was going on in
their surroundings. At the end of the
two weeks, they described having
made a breakthrough in feeling more
comfortable in their own skin, being
aware of in a whole new way and
relishing chats with friends and even
strangers.
Then they got their phones back.
In 10 seconds, each was busy in her
own world phoning, texting, tweet-
ing, checking in online. Their favorite
message: "I'm back!"
It would take a big change in the
lives of many to live more in the
moment, but that could help them
celebrate each step in life's journey.

Support Chipola Regional Arts Association


have been long time
supporters and serve on
the Board of Directors for
the Chipola Regional Arts Associa-
tion: We feel that if folks in the five
county area we serve Jackson,
Washington, Holmes, Calhoun and
Liberty understand all that CRAA
does to support the arts, they will
be willing to join the effort. CRAA
donated over $125,000 since its
inception to support the Artist
Series that feature professional
touring groups; the next artist
series is known as "3 on a String"
a Country/Bluegrass Group and
will perform on Thurday, April 11,
at the new Center for the Arts at
Chipola.
CRAA has also given $45,000 in
scholarships to deserving art stu-
dents at Chipola College.
Since 2000, CRAA has also
awarded grants totaling $30,000
to deserving teachers who need
supplemental support of their
art/music programs. None were
more than $200, so a lot of teach-
ers applied for and were awarded
grants. Since CRAA was established,
more than 25,000 school children
have witnessed special free perfor-
mances at their schools as a result
of CRAA's supported art programs
in the public schools.
Since we are presently in our

Thank you, Jackson Hospital
I have always had a high regard
for Jackson Hospital. After all, I
was born there, my grandmother
was a nurse there, and I served on
the Foundation Board for many
years. But being there asa patient
on several occasions during the
holidays has filled me with pride
and given me a new prospective
on medical services available in
Jackson County.
Recently I was treated in the
Jackson Hospital Emergency Room
on more than one occasion and
was admitted twice. The flu was
running rampant and the hospital
was filled to the gills. Doctors,
nurses, aides, and administration
were working non-stop!
In addition to my room and the
emergency room I received many
outside tours for CTScan, X-rays,
ultra sound, and a nuclear test
where I had to eat a scrambled
egg diced with nuclear medicine
(yuk!...and they even provided
salt!). The lab was constantly
drawing blood. Believe it, a
"big stick" is not referring to a
tree limb! Even dietary was
accommodating and anxious to
please.
It is never fun to go to the
hospital. There is always some de-


gree of fear because you are already
sick. You wonder about every drop
of blood they drav, or whether
or not you have temperature, or
whether they will come up with
the right diagnosis.
During all of the turmoil the
nurses were right there when I
needed them. They were pleas-
ant, happy, smiling, and ready
for whatever was thrown their
way. I praise the nurses on second
floor ... Yes, "second" floor...the one
with so many patients! They never
complained about their bursting at
the seams with some very, very sick
patients. They did their jobs in a
professional manner and
with expertise.
My last admission was on the
weekend through the emergency
room. I had been there the day
before but things had changed
rapidly and 1 became very
dehydrated. They were awesome.
The doctor on call for the weekend
is among the best. My physician
arrived on Monday knowing that I
had been well treated. "Perplexed"
was the word my physician used
to describe my symptoms after
another couple of days, but he told
me there was another test to be
done. Yep, the egg!
Good news! We have a diagnosis
thanks to the egg! So, I am back
home, working, and going about
my life with a new Rx to add to
my repertoire!
Thanks to Jackson Hospital, great
doctors, and lots of nurses for
treating me during this ordeal.
I hope that all of the readers
will take a look at the excellent
medical care and very capable
doctors we have available to us
right in our own backyard. I think
you will be as pleased as I have
been.

No deposition



for lawyer in



Martin case


The Associated Press

SANFORD Lawyers
for neighborhood watch
volunteer George Zim-
merman will pot be al-
lowed to question an
attorney for the parents
of slain Florida teenager
Trayvon Martin, a judge
said Friday.
Lawyers for Zimmer-
man, who is charged with
second-degree in Martin's
shooting death, wanted
to question attorney Ben-
jamin Crump. The out-
spoken attorney has said
he talked to Martin's girl-
friend and she was on the
phone with Martin in the
minutes before Zimmer-
man shot the unarmed
teenager to death on the
night of Feb. 26, 2012.
Zimmerman has plead-
ed not guilty. He has said
Martin punched him,
they fought and he shot
Martin in self-defense.
Zimmerman's attor-
neys wanted to question
Crump in part to ask him
about specifics on the
circumstances surround-
ing his recording of the


girlfriend, who was iden-
tified as witness eight in
court.
Circuit
Judge Deb-
ra S. Nel-
l- son said

didn't have
Zimmerman re oe vran
informa-
tion and questioning him
would violate attorney-
client privilege.
Nelson also said the
defense team has had
10 months to interview
the witness and she, not
Crump, is the only one
who could provide testi-
mony about the phone
call.
Crump's attorney, Bruce
Blackwell, called the mo-
tion "a side show" by the
defense. Crump did not
attend the hearing.
Don West, an attorney
representing Zimmer-
man, said Crump misrep-
resented the woman's age
as 16 when ;he was 18.
"She has been cloaked
in mystery since the be-
ginning of this," West
said.

DCF: Medicaid paying nursing home bill


The Associated Press

MIAMI Florida wel-
fare officials are proposing
a bill that targets Medicaid
fraud among patients who
hide their assets withfam-
ily afid friends to get the
taxpayer-funded program
to pay for their nursing
home care.
Patients are allowed to
hire a relative or friend
to oversee small aspects
of their care, such as hair
styling or room decorat-
ing. But instead of being
paid monthly or yearly,
some caregivers are paid
up front for years of service
at a time, which can de-
crease some patients' as-
sets so they in turn qualify

for Medicaid. Spouses also
can sign over their patient's
financial support to the
state, which allows couples
with millions of dollars in
assets to get Medicaid to
foot the bill, Department
of Children and Families
spokesman Joe Follick said
Friday.
A 58-year-old patient
submitted a contract last
September to pay some-
one $25 an hour for 10
hours a week over the next
22 years, paying them up
front and diverting nearly
$300,000. The employee's
job description included
labeling clothes so they
aren't lost, shampooing
and brushing the patient's
hair, and decorating the


cana County Contest will
be May 21, at 6 p.m., at the
Jackson County Extension
Service. The district con-
test will be June 1, at 9 a.m.,
at the Jackson County Ex-
tension Service. For more
information about the 4-H

ing Program, contact your

er or the Jackson County
4-H Agent, Ben Knowles,
at 482-9620. You may also
visit our website at http://
jackson.ifas.ufl.edu/4-h/.
4-H is the youth devel-
opment program of the
Florida Cooperative Exten-
sion Service and the Uni-
versity of Florida's Institute
of Food and Agricultural
Sciences. The focus of 4-H
is to provide young people
with opportunities to de-
velop life skills through
participation in commu-
nity clubs, project clubs,
day camps, residential
camps, school enrichment


patient's room with family
photos, according to Med-
icaid records provided by
DCE
"These are services that
most people's loved ones
would be providing with-
out compensation, and
it causes us to questions
what the purpose of these
contracts are really for,"
Follick said.
DCF officials said the
loopholes allow patients to
unfairly divert assets and
are costing the taxpayer-
funded Medicaid program
millions of dollars a year.
The agency tracked 538
cases over six years and
found that Medicaid spent
more than $29 million in
services for people whose


programs, and competitive
events. 4-H is open to all
youth between the ages of

if^Te1


spouses were financially
stable but had signed over
financial support to the
state so Medicaid would
pay for the nursing home.
Officials could have re-
covered $24 million from
those spouses under fed-
eral law, but the state cur-
rently lacks a process to
do, DCF officials said.
Here's how it works: The
healthy spouse legally
turns over the patient
spouse's financial support
to the state. The healthy
spouse still lives in the cou-
ple's home and is allowed
to have assets including
personal income, a car and
up to roughly $115,000 a
year in the bank.

race, creed, color, religion,

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
President Barack Obama meets to discuss administration policies to reduce gun violence with
representatives from Major Cities Chiefs Association and Major County Sheriffs Association at
the White House.


NRA uses Justice memo


to accuse Obama on guns


The Associated Press

WASHINGTON The
National.Rifle Association
is using a Justice Depart-
ment memo it obtained
to argue in ads that the
Obama administration
believes its gun control
plans won't work unless
the government seizes fire-
arms and requires national
gun registration ideas
the White House has not
proposed and does not
support.
The NRA's assertion and
its obtaining of the memo
in the first place under-
score the no-holds-barred
battle under way as Wash-
ington's fight over gun re-
strictions heats up.
The memo, under the
name of one of the Jus-
tice Department's leading
crime researchers, cri-
tiques the effectiveness of
gun control proposals, in-
cluding some of President
Barack, Obama's. A Justice
Department official called
the memo an unfinished
review of gun violence re-
search and said it does not
represent administration
policy.
The memo says requir-
ing background checks for
more gun purchases could
help, but also could lead to
more illicit weapons sales.

Vegas still

viewed as

dangerous

The Associated Press

LAS VEGAS Variously
known as an adult play-
ground and Disneyland
for grown-ups, Las Vegas
brands itself as a place
where tourists Can enjoy a
sense of edginess with no
real danger.
But a series of high-pro-
file episodes of random vi-
olence amid the throngs of
tourists is threatening Sin
City's reputation as a pad-
ded room of a town where
people can cut loose with
no fear of consequences.
A car-to-car shooting and
fiery crash that killed two
bystanders and an aspiring
rapper Thursday followed
a bizarre elevator stabbing
and a movie theater park-
ing lot shooting.
Though crime has been
falling on the glitzy stretch
of Las Vegas Boulevard that
houses most of the city's
major casinos, tourism offi-
cials worry that vacationers
and convention planners
could begin to, steer clear of
the town because of a per-
ception of mayhem.
"We are concerned be-
cause it can create misper-
ceptions about the safety
of the city, the safety of the
Strip," said Gary Thomp-
son, spokesman for Cae-
sars Entertainment.
Violent crime, which in-
cludes murder, rape, rob-
bery and assault, in the
city's main tourist hub fell
13 percent in 2012, from
256 to 223 incidents, and
is down 11 percent for the
First part of 2013.


weapons and high capac-
ity ammunition magazines
produced in the future but
exempting those already
owned by the public, as
Obama has proposed,
would have limited impact
because people now own
so many of those items.
It also says that even to-
tal elimination of assault
weapons would have little
overall effect on gun killings
because assault weapons
account for a limited pro-
portion of those crimes.
The nine-page docu-
ment says the success
of universal background
checks. would depend in
part on "requiring gun
registration," and says gun
buybacks would not be ef-
fective "unless massive and
coupled with a ban."
The administration has
not proposed gun registra-
tion, buybacks or banning
all firearms. But gun reg-
istration and ownership
curbs are hot-button is-
sues for the NRA and other
gun-rights groups, which
strenuously oppose the
ideas.
Justice Department and
White House officials de-
clined to provide much in-
formation about the memo
or answer questions about
it on the record.
The memo has the look

and calls itself "a cursory
summary" and assessment
of gun curb initiatives. The
administration has not re-
lease it officially.
But the NRA posted the
memo on one of its web-
sites and cites it in adver-
tising aimed at whipping
up opposition to Obama's
efforts to contain gun vio-
lence. The ad says the paper
shows that the administra-
tion "believes that a gun
ban will not work without
mandatory gun confisca-
tion" and thinks universal
background checks "won't
work without requiring
national gun registration"
- ideas the president has
not proposed or expressed
support for.
"Still think President
Obama's proposals sound
reasonable?" Chris W. Cox,
the NRA's chief Washington
lobbyist, says in the ad.
Last month, White House
spokesman Jay Carney said
none of Obama's propos-
als "would take away a gun
from a single law-abiding
American."
A Justice Department of-
ficial who would only dis-
cuss the issue on condition
of anonymity said the NRA
ad misrepresents Obama's
gun proposals and that the
administration has never
backed a gun registry or
gun confiscation.


It's personal and business


in GOP fight over Hagel


TlhoAssociated Press

WASHINGT'ON The
fierce Republican opposi-
tion to President Barack
Obama's nomination of
Chuck Hagel to be defense
secretary is personal and
business.
The nasty fight long has
been seen as a proxy for
the never-ending scuffles
between the Democratic
president and congres-
sional Republicans, with
barely any reservoir of
good will between the
White House and law-
makers, and the GOP still
smarting over the Novem-
ber election results.
Barring any surprises,
the drawn-out battle over
Hagel's nomination prob-
ably will end this com-
ing week with his Senate
confirmation. But his
fellow Republicans have
roughed him up.
A vote is expected on
Tuesday.

Obama secured a sec-
ond term, Republicans

sador Susan Rice, and

Emboldened Republi-
cans then set their sights
on Hagel, whose GOP
classification won him no
points with the party.
The former two-term
Nebraska senator was
widely viewed as a politi-

with President George W

stayed on the sidelines in

between Obama and the

zona Sen. John McCain,
and endorsed fellow Viet-

"There's a lot of ill will
toward Sen. Hagel be-

Republican, he attacked
President Bush merci-
lessly, at one point said he
was the worst president
since Herbert Hoover,
said the surge (of U.S.
troops in Iraq) was the
worst blunder since the
Vietnam War, which is
nonsense, and was anti-

that created widespread
doubts about his backing

MEDICAL INSURANCE REBATES
There's a wrinkle in the Affordable Care Act that's
offering unexpected benefits: you may have gotten a
rebate check on your medical insurance premiums.
The law requires the insurance companies to pay out
a certain portion of premiums for medical claims and
limits how much goes to administration and profits.
The rebates may be paid in cash or applied to current
premiums. There are tax ramifications.
If you had an individual policy and claimed the standard
deduction on your 2011 return, the rebate is not taxable.
If you itemized your deductions or, if self-employed,
deducted the premiums from gross income, then
the rebate is taxable to the extent that the deduction
benefitted you. Ditto if you paid into a company plan
with after-tax dollars. But if you used pre-tax dollars
(through a salary reduction plan, say), the rebate is
additional compensation and subject to payroll taxes for
2012.

regulations. Call on the experts at

Simmons
also linked
his message
to one of
the selec-
tions that
had been
Henderson presented
by one of
the guest
singers, Trish Brannon.
Brannon had sung "Why
Can't All God's Children
Get Along?" an exhorta-
tion to love each other
in an embrace of indi-
vidual difference rather
than seeing difference
as a barrier to separate
us from each other. The
answer to the song's
question, Simmons said,
is ignorance. The cure to
ignorance, he said, lies
in finding accord "at the


ing on the new Southland
episode, titled "Babel."
"We shot for three days,
and this is the longest I've
had to work on one char-
acter," he said. "The total
TV time on air for me will
probably be about three
minutes, but it was great
to have the time to de-
velop the role. I'm excited
about it."
He said he's growing
more confident in his
profession as he gains
experience.
"Things are getting bet-
ter; I'm getting more com-
fortable in auditions, in
my craft, and personally,"
he explained. "It's excit-
ing to see things come to-
gether, for all you work to
come forth. You hear a lot
of 'no's, you get a lot of re-
jections, but then you get
the 'yes' that makes you
forget about all the no's
you had. I think it's kind
of like childbirth in that
the pain is incredible but
when the baby comes, the
pain is forgotten in the joy.
It's like that for me, It has
been a great run so far, and
this is still the beginning."
Simpson worked in live
theater during his college
years at Florida A&M Uni-
versity, and is willing to
do more but said his real
love is for television and
movies.

like that sensation, and I
want to create the feeling

John E. Summers, Jr., 61,
of Marianna died Sunday,
February 17, 2013 at his

Mr. Summers' family set-
tled in the Fort Wayne, IN
area in 1964, where both
his mother and his two
brothers still reside. Mr.
Summers attended New
Haven High School, where
their teams were also
known as the Bulldogs. Mr.
Summers then majored in
Latin and social studies at
Indiana University in Bloo-
mington, IN. Upon gradu-
ation from college, Mr.
Summers taught for a short
period of time at West
Washington High School in


nization and to apply for
NAACP scholarships to
Chipola.
A representative of the
BASIC program briefly
spoke about that organi-
zation's ongoing educa-
tion and prevention
efforts related to HIV and
substance abuse issues,
and the group had a table
set up with information
on those matters.
Representatives of
the "Go Red" campaign
against heart disease
and other health threats
also had information on
display.

how to live; what it is to be
a man, how to love your
spouse, how to provide.

be out here and live a good
life."
Simpson said his brother
Billy Simpson of Marian-

tie Wilson, his aunt/god-
mother Doretha Jackson,
and other relatives are and
have been inspirations,
and that his larger com-

get into too much wrong
without being in trouble at
home, because it would be
getting back to your parent
before you could blink. I
love being from the coun-
try, from a small town. I
love telling people about

Not to give the plot away,
it's suffice to say that he
called upon his child-
hood experiences to help
him take his own falls


Salem, IN before coming to
Marianna High School in
1984. He taught social
studies, Latin I and II, and
Advanced Placement
American history, and he
was the yearbook sponsor.
Yearbooks produced by
students on Mr. Summers'
yearbook staffs were
known for many years to
publish some of the best
books in the country.
Mr. Summers' passion
for teaching was well
known, as was his dedica-
tion to his students and to
Marianna High School. His
efforts to capture his stu-
dents' attention and impart
a deep understanding of
the subjects they were
studying were legendary.
Just one such effort was
"The Dance," which Mr.
Summers performed only
once every four years,
"something each student
got to see only once." No
one who knew him will ev-
er forget Mr. Summers and
his collection of ties.
Mr. Summers is survived
by his mother, Joan Summ-
ers and two brothers, Steve
and Mark (Dr. Craig Hill).
He was preceded in
death by his father, John E.
Summers, Sr. His family
wishes to express their
deepest gratitude to the
entire Marianna High com-

Summers, and the support
and caring that has been
shown to each of us.
Mr. Summers' family will

Egypt opposition leader calls for election boycott


The Associated Press

CAIRO Egyptian op-
position leader Mohamed
ElBaradei called Saturday
for a boycott of parliamen-
tary elections, drawing
immediate criticism from
some within his move-
ment who said it was a
hasty decision.
The dispute showed the
fragility of a fairly new


opposition front forged af-
ter the deeply fragmented
movement found little
success at the polls since
it led the 2011 uprising
that ousted autocrat Hosni
Mubarak.
Opposition infighting
would only help ensure
that the Islamist Muslim
Brotherhood group re-
mains Egypt's dominant
political force after the


next vote.
"(I) called for parlia-
mentary election boycott
in 2010 to expose sham
democracy. Today I repeat
my call, will not be part
of an act of deception,"
Nobel laureate ElBaradei,
who leads the opposition
National Salvation Front
(NSF), wrote on his Twitter
account.
The comment reiterated


a frequently heard opposi-
tion sentiment that demo-
cratically elected President
Mohammed Morsi is act-
ing like Mubarak.
Elections under
Mubarak's three-decade
rule were widely rigged and
parliament was dominated
by members of his ruling
party.
Morsi called for the
elections in a decree late


Thursday night a four-
stage vote starting at the
end of April and conclud-
ing in June.
On Friday, ElBaradei said
holding elections during
this time of deep political
polarization "is a recipe for
disaster."
Morsi's Brotherhood ac-
cused the opposition of
running away from the
challenge.


The deputy head of the
Brotherhood's Freedom
and Justice Party, Essam
el-Erian, responded to El-
Baradei's call on his Face-
book page.
"Running away from a
popular test only means
that some want to as-
sume executive author-
ity without a democratic
mandate," he said of the
opposition.

Radicals recruited
children at schools
GAO, Mali (AP) The
radical Islamic fighters
showed up at Mohamed
Salia's Quranic school,
armed with weapons and
demanding to address his
students.
The leader, named
Hamadi, entered a class-
room and scrawled his
message on the board.
"How to wage holy war,"
he wrote in Arabic. "How
to terrorize the enemy in
combat."
Salia urged his students


to ask some questions of
their own: Where had he
come from and what did
he want with a bunch of
young people?
Hamadi told the students
that people didn't ask
questions like that where
he was from. Islam knows
no nationality, he replied
and then left.
"I told my students to
be careful: that these men
may be well-versed in the
Quran but their Islamic
point of view is not the
same as ours," the teacher
recalled.

The Marianna Bulldogs con-
tinued their early run of good
play this season with an 11-1
five-inning victory over the Chi-
pley Tigers on Thursday night at
home.
Marianna made its mark on
the game early and often, scor-
ing three runs in the first inning
and six more in the second to
take a 9-0 lead.
Two more runs in the third put
the Bulldogs up 11-0, with Chi-


pley scoring its only run in the
top of the fifth.
"We continued to hit the ball
well," Marianna coach Steve
Dewitt said. "Chipley threw it
around a little bit, but we played
well and hit it well and the pitch-
ing has been good."
Reid Long started on the
mound and got the win for Mari-
anna, allowing no runs on no
hits and a walk, with six strike-
outs, but had to come out of the
game after getting hit in the knee
by a pitch while at the plate in
the bottom of the third.

The Cottondale Hornets ex-
ploded for 11 runs in the third
inning to blow open a close
game and go on to take a 16-
1 five-inning victory over the
Ponce de Leon Pirates in their
District 3-1A opener Thursday
night in Cottondale.
The Hornets evened up their
season record at 1-1 with the
victory, which followed a 2-1
loss to Malone on Feb. 14 in
the season opener.
PDL took the early lead by
scoring in the top of the first
inning thanks to a walk, a hit
batter, and a Cottondale error
to go up 1-0.
That's where the score re-
mained until the bottom of the
third inning when the Hornets
busted the game wide open
with a huge two-out rally.
After Ryan Morrissey and

start the frame, Austin Baxley

up their second victory of the
week Thursday night at home,
routing the Altha Wildcats
9-0.
Malone was coming off of a 13-

on Thursday.
The Tigers scored two runs in

the second and third, and then
added three in the fourth and
two in the sixth.
Brett Henry had a big day at
the plate and on the mound for
Malone, finishing 2-for-4 with
three RBI, while tossing six shut-

Lady Pirates beat Bay to go 2-0 to start season


BY DUSTIN KENT
dkent@jcfloridan.com

The Sneads Lady Pirates im-
proved to 2-0 on the young sea-
son with a 9-7 home victory over
the Bay High Lady Tornadoes on
Thursday night.
Sneads, which opened the sea-
son Feb. 15 with a 5-0 road win
over Blountstown, scored seven
runs in the second inning Thurs-
day, then held off a late charge
by Bay to seal the victory.
"It was a good win for us," Lady
Pirates coach Kelvin Johnson
said after the game. "Bay is a


little bit bigger school than tts, so
it's nice to get a win over a school
of that quality." -
Brooke Williams and Mallory
McDaniel each drove in three
runs for the Lady Pirates, while
Cambraige Chason led the team
with two hits and an RB1, Brandy
Strickland had four walks,' and
Alex Maphis-was 1-for-2 with a
walk and an RBI.
Amber Avriett started in the
circle for Sneads and went the
distance, giving up five earned
runs on seven hits, seven walks,
and two strikeouts.
The Lady Pirates have now


walked 15 batters in two games
- sophomore Brooke Wil-
liams surrendered eight free
passes in the win over Blount-
stown which Johnson said
he didn't think was a long-term
concern.
"Our control with our pitching
has been a little issue so far, but
it will get better," he said. "Both
of my pitchers are going to get
better as the year goes on."
On the other hand, the offense
has gotten off to a nice start,
rackingup 17 hits and 14 runs
through two outings.


Johnson said that on Thurs-


day it was great to get pro-
duction from players bat-
ting outside the heart of the
order.
"I really thought the bottom
of the lineup did a great job of
getting on base," he said. "Four
of our seven hits came from the
girls batting 6-through-9 in the
order. Shelbi Byler and Alaynah
Weiss neither one had a hit, so
to win a game against Bay with-
out my two big girls getting a hit
was real encouraging. I was real
proud of the girls at the bottom
of the lineup. They were the real
difference between us winning


and losing."
The seven-run second inning
put the Lady Pirates up 7-1, but
Bay High stormed back with
five runs in the fourth inning to
make it 7-6.
Sneads added insurance
runs in the fifth and sixth in-
nings to push the margin to
three, and Bay was unable to
add more than dne run in the
seventh.
The Lady Pirates are sched-
uled to play a make-up game
at home against Wewahi-
tchka on Monday at 3 and 5
p.m.

JACKSON COUNTY FLORIDAN www.jctloridan.comr


MAnie's Mailbox


Dear Annie: I would like your opinion on
something. I am a grandmother of four
wonderful grandkids and very proud of
the fact. The problem comes when deal-
ing with the other grandmother, especial-
ly when others are in the vicinity. 1 don't
know whether it's because I am oldei than
she is or what, but she always addresses
me as "Gramma Mary," as in, "Gramma
Mary, what would you like to do today?"
,I find this condescending, disrespectful
and rude. First of all, I am not her grand-
mother. Second, I am a person in my own
right, with a job and hobbies. I am not de-
fined solely by being a grandmother.
I was at a family function last week
where I met my granddaughter's soon-to-
be mother-in-law, and this woman called
me "Gramma," too! My daughter later
said it was because she couldn't remem-
ber my name, which is all well and good,
but when I couldn't remember her name,
I didn't call her "Mom." I took my daugh-
ter aside and asked what her name was.
I don't mean to sound petty, but this
bothers me so much that I want to
scream. If a grandchild calls me "Gram-
ma," I'm thrilled and want them to shout
it from the rooftops. But when non-relat-
ed adults do it, it is demeaning. How can I
get them to stop?
-NO NAME, NO CITY

Dear No Name: Not every grandmother
would object to this, especially since oth-
er adults might consider it part of your ti-
tle and unconnected to your relationship
to them. Also keep in mind that, in front
of the grandchildren, others may feel it is
less confusing to the kids to refer to you
by the same name the children use. But
since this bothers you so much, it's per-
fectly OK to state your preference at the
time. When someone calls you "Gramma
Mary," smile and say, "I'd prefer you call
me 'Mary.'" You can remind them when
necessary.

Dear Annie: I am a recent widower. I
was married for more than 50 years. The


problem is, my conscience is really both-
ering me.
Almost 40 years ago, I had a brief affair
with one of my employees. I confessed
my sins to my priest, but I never said any-
thing to my wife. I don't know whether
she suspected anything, but if she did,
she was silent.
The dilemma is: Should I tell my adult
children? Or should 1 take this unholy se-
cret to my grave?
CALIFORNIA

Dear California: Please don't ease your
conscience by burdening your children
with this hurtful information. You might
feel better, but they would feel terrible.
Even though you spoke to your priest, if
you still need to get this off of your chest,
talk to a counselor. You made a mistake 40
years ago and crave forgiveness, but you
also have to forgive yourself.

Dear Annie: This is in reply to "Conflict-
ed Adoptee from Kansas," who located
her birth mother and wanted her half-
siblings to know about her.
My mother had a child when she was 19.
She was unable to care for the baby girl,
but the biological father's parents decid-
ed to raise her without any contact with
my mother. Ten years later, my mother
married someone else and had me.
When I was in college, this now-grown
child contacted my mother and said she
wanted me to know I have a sibling. My
mother was terrified to tell me; but didn't
want me to hear it first from my half-sis-
ter. Mom sobbed through the entire con-
versation, and I can only imagine how she
felt. I understand the fear and concern
that my opinion of her would change, but
I am just glad she told me about it.
I now have a relationship with my half-
sister, and although we don't have a lot of
contact, we are still family. I can't imag-
ine allowing this knowledge to affect my
close relationship with my mother. Every-
one has a past.

Declarer must work to keep West off the lead.
After winning the third trick, South should play a spade to the board, then lead the

South should put up his ace.
If the king does not fall, declarer leads another club, hoping East has to take the

Here, though, the king tumbles (a priori, 6.22 percent) and declarer claims 11

Horoscopes

PISCES (Feb. 20-March
20) Don't make any
grand gestures if you're
expecting repayment.
The response you'll later
get from the recipients
will be anything but what
you expect.
ARIES (March 21-April
19) It's constructive
to say nice things about
friends, but think twice
about flattering someone
who doesn't deserve it.
TAURUS (April 20-May
20) Unless your ambi-
tions are in harmony with
your will to work, it isn't
likely that you will ex-
pend the effort needed to
achieve your objectives.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20)
It's best not to pretend
to be knowledgeable
about something you
have little experience
with.
CANCER (June 21-
July 22) The world
doesn't owe you any free
rides, especially in your
financial or commercial
dealings.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)
- Romantic adventures
could be unusually ap-
pealing. Don't involve
yourself in something
you'll have trouble get-
ting out of.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept.
22) Usually, you're dis-
ciplined and feel a need
to be industrious and
productive at all times.
Today, these urges might
not be in play.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct.
23) Dbn't let it be said
of you that you're only
nice to those who can
help you. When you try
to manipulate people, it
usually backfires.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov.
22)- If you make it a
point to toot your own
horn in front of others,
chances are all that will
come out is a bunch of
sour notes.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-
Dec. 21) Trynot to be
cocky if you catch on to
something quicker than
anybody else. If you en-
counter someone who is
smarter than you, you'll
look foolish.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-
Jan. 19) When drawn
into a joint endeavor that
requires a cash outlay,
make certain everyone
antes up equally.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb.
19) Be careful about
basing your promises on
expediency rather than
sincerity.

NASCAR


Danica brings new eyes to Daytona 500


The Associated Press
DAYTONA BEACH- The
big boys brought their little
girls to see NASCAR's shin-
ing star .
Jeff Gordon, Carl Ed-
wards and Jimmie Johnsor
all took their daughters tc
meet Danica Patrick this
week at Daytona Interna-
'tional Speedway.
It was the ultimate back-
stage pass.
Patrick dropped to. one
knee, wrapped her right
arm around Ella. Gordon's
waist and posed for pic-
tures as the 5-year-old
flashed an endless smile
in Victory Lane last week.
Every day since, Patrick's
crew has handed out doz-
ens and dozens of lugnuts
to little girls clamoring for
souvenirs. Annie Edwards
wore GoDaddy green shoes
for the special occasion.
Evie Johnson recognizes
only two cars, her Dad said
his and the green one.
"Carl was saying it's
good that she sees me in
real life and in person be-
cause 'To her, you are like
some mythical creature
that doesn't exist,' Patrick
said. "Then after quali-
fying, Jimmie Johnson
brought his little girl over.
That's three pretty big driv-
ers who have little girls that
wanted to meet me."
Danicamania is in
full bloom at Daytona
and with a brand new
audience.
The first woman in histo-
ry to earn the top starting
spot in a race at NASCAR's
elite Sprint Cup Series, Pat-
rick will bring new eyeballs
to Sunday's season-open-
ing Daytona 500. She'll
lure in casual sports fans,
women who don't know a
muffler from a manifold,
and little girls in awe of the
glamorous driver and her
fast green car.
It's an ambassador role
Patrick has played since
her 2005 debut at the In-
dianapolis 500, where she
became the first woman


THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
Danica Patrick looks out of the garage during practice for
the Daytona 500 on Saturday at the Daytona International
Speedway in Daytona Beach.


to lead laps in the biggest
race in the world. But it's so
much more now.
"You can only lead by
example and I don't neces-
sarily want my example to
step outside the box and
be a girl in a guy's world.
That's not what I am trying
to say," Patrick said. "But if
you have a talent for some-
thing, do not be afraid to
follow through with it and
not feel different. Do not
feel like you are less quali-
fied or less competent to be
able to do the job because
you are different. Ignore
that and let it be about
what your potential is."
And right now, she be-
lieves her potential is to
win "The Great American


Race."
Patrick 'starts first on
Sunday, next to four-time
champion Gordon, and
after running 32 laps in
Friday's practice and mix-
ing it up with NASCAR's
biggest stars, she was more
convinced than ever that
she can be a player in the
race.
"Can I win? Yeah. Abso-
lutely," Patrick said. "I feel
comfortable in this kind
of race situation. I feel
comfortable in the draft. I
feel comfortable that the
speeds are not a problem. I
know I am inexperienced. I
know I am rookie out there.
I will do the best job I can
to win. I do believe I have a
chance to win. I.do believe


experience would help, but
that doesn't mean I don't
have a chance to win."
Crew chief 'obny Gibson
was even more convinced
he's got a winner for Sun-
day. He was part of Derrike
Cope's improbable 1990
victory, when Cope inher-
ited the win when the late
Dale Earnhardt blew a tire
on the final lap.
"She has got the talent,"
Gibson said. "She's already
proven in the Nationwide
Series, from what I've seen
on the speedway stuff she
definitely gets the respect.
People know she's fast. She
can draft. She knows how
the air works. She gets a
lot of that from IndyCar.
So I have 100 percent con-
fidence she can win the
Daytona 500."
But the Daytona 500 is a
pressure-packed race un-
like anything except the
Indy 500. Some of the best
drivers never win it it
took seven-time cham-
pion Earnhardt 20 tries'to
finally get his lone win -
and Tony Stewart, Patrick's
teammate and car owner,
goes into Sunday's race
seeking his first victory in
15 tries.
He's been quiet all week,
except, of course, for
the nine-car accident he
started in an exhibition
race last weekend. He la-
mented afterward, "That
is why I haven't won a Day-
tona 500 yet. I'm not quite
sure exactly which move to
make."
Don't be fooled, though,
by the three-time NASCAR
champion. Stewart might
just like being out of the
spotlight as he heads into
one of the few races miss-
ing from his resume, and
being the favorite for the
500 has never worked out
for him before.
He wrapped up his prac-
tice with one final run Fri-
day to test his race engine
and wound up on top of
the speed chart.
"I'm excited we've made
it through the whole week


without a scratch on the
car," he said. "We are as
ready as you can get for
the 500."
The title of favorite this
year goes to Kevin Harvick,
who has two wins in two
races so far at Speedweeks.
The driver has dominated
in his Richard Childress
Racing Chevrolet, led
63 of a possible 135 laps
and didn't even bother to
take the cover off his car
in Friday's two practice
sessions.
Harvick, the 2007 race


winner, has come into the
year with both focus and
some inner peace after a
pair of life-changing mo-
ments. His first child, son
Keelan, was born after
last July's race at Daytona.
Then, in November, Har-
vick made the difficult de-
cision to leave RCR after
his 13th season with the
organization that brought
him into NASCAR and
gave him his Cup ride the
week after Earnhardt was
killed in the 2001 Daytona
500.

NASCAR Brief


Stewart survives,
wins Nationwide race
DAYTONA BEACH, Fla.
Tony Stewart won a
chaotic Nationwide Series
race at Daytona Inter-
national Speedway that
ended with a frightening
last-lap crash.
Regan Smith was leading
coming to the checkered
flag when he was turned
sideways into the wall.
Cars began wrecking all


over the track, and rookie
KyleLarson's car went
sailing into the fence that
separates the track from
the grandstands.
Stewart slid through the
wreckage to the win.
When Larson's car came
to a stop, it was missing
its entire front end. There
was a gaping hole in the
fence, and a burning piece
of car inside the fencing.
Shortly before the final
three-lap sprint to the


finish, Michael Annett was
taken to a local hospital
for further evaluation after
a 13-car accident with five
laps remaining.

Weird catches


One afternoon on
North Georgia's
Tallulah River, I
cast a tiny Panther Martin
spinner into the riffling
current beneath a bridge.
As I began my retrieve,
visions of huge rainbow
trout danced in my head.
Seconds later, when my
ultra-light rod bent nearly
double, I was convinced
my long-running fantasy
had at last become reality.
The bite was not typical
of a 10-inch stocker trout.
It was a sudden, steady
tug that signaled a big fish,
perhaps even a trophy.
Having set the hook, I
played the fish, carefully
lifting and lowering my
rod tip, reeling down to
gain line before again
Slumping upward to exert
pressure on this rainbow
of a lifetime. It was a
monumental battle.
The reel's drag screamed
as the big trout took back
every inch of line I gained.
A child-like excitement
ran through me. I had
hooked my first trophy
trout. Now, if I could just
keep him on, It would
take all my expert angling
skills.
Carefully, I leaned out
from behind the bridge
piling where I stood,
"reading" the water
upstream in case the fish
swam that way into the
strong current. Peering
through the dark bridge
tunnel, I suddenly came
eyeball to eyeball with
my friend Craig, who was
simultaneously peeking
S around his own piling
from the bridge's opposite
side.
At once, we both real-
ized what had happened.
Neither of us knowing the
other was there, we had
cast to the same spot and
hooked each other, lure to
lure. My trophy "fish" was
Craig and his was me. We
sheepishly reeled in and
disengaged our tangled
spinners. Embarrassed,
we parted company and
continued fishing. I still,
by the way, have never
caught a trophy trout.
That was but one of
many weird "catches" I've
made or witnessed in over
a half-century of fishing.
Sometimes, as readers are
no doubt aware, what one
hooks is not always what
one is after.
In my day, I've inadver-'
tently caught such non-
fishy items as sunken milk
jugs, tennis shoes and lids
from sardine tins. On a
stream in Cherokee, North
Carolina, I once caught a
submerged pair of ladies
underwear. Fortunately,
there was no lady in them
at the time.
Other friends besides
Craig have made weird
catches as well. My buddy
John Ross Helms, an avid
float fisherman, once set
his hook in a live beaver.
The aquatic rodent towed
John R's small boat nearly
half a mile before breaking
off. When you go fishing,
friends, you often never
know what to expect.
Take my late friend
George for instance.
George once lifted his line
from the Chattahoochee
River near Gordon, Ala.,
and received the surprise
of his life. Reeling in,
he discovered his hook
impaled in (How do I
describe it?) an elongated
tubular object made of la-
tex rubber. The thing was
open at one end, tapering
to a rounded point at the
other. Looked sorta like a
colorless, deflated balloon.
Yeah, that's right. One of
those.
Granted, it's no strange
occurrence to find these


items in out-of-the-way
locations. Nobody, how-
ever, ever expects to see
one hanging from the end
of his fishing line. That just
doesn't happen every day.
George, who has a pro-
r pensity for asking totally
unanswerable questions,
turned to me and asked,
quite seriously, "Now who
do you reckon put that in
here?"


BobIorne ga
Outdoors ColumTist
"Well, George," I replied,
I really couldn't say. You
might try looking in the
phone books of every river
town upstream from here
to Atlanta."
"Real funny," said
George.
"But wait," I continued.
"There could be another
explanation. You know
how the experts tell us
these hybrid stripers we're
fishing for are sterile,
right? Can't reproduce and
all?"
"Yeah, so?"
"Well," I said, pointing
to his dangling 'prize,'
"Maybe now you know
why."
George didn't com-
ment. He turned away and
continued trying to shake
the offending weird catch
from the end of his line.

LAKE SEMINOLE
Bass fishing is slow and the water
is quite stained. Wherever clear
water can be found, try swimming
worms in or near lily pad patches
or shallow grass. In the stained
water, try shallow crankbaits near
sandbars and spawning coves.
Crappies have shallowed up
and are moving toward shoreline
structure. The stained water and
fluctuating depths, however, have
made the bite very slow at present.
Bream activity has slowed drasti-
cally over the past week or so.
Catfish have shown some signs of

LAKE EUFAULA
Bass fishing is good. Early morn-
ing fishing in rip-rap and similar
rocky structure has been very pro-
ductive of late. The crankbait bite
in these areas is paying dividends.
Stop-and-start slow retrieves are
recommended. Carolina-rigs and
slowly fished jigs also are recom-
mended on points and in deeper
hard structure like rocks and wood
in some of the deeper creek areas.
Crappies have improved a bit.
Night fishing is fair under some of
the bridges. Individual fish sizes
are good. Use live minnows.
