Troop 3 Boy Scouts enjoy hiking and camping trip


Special to the Floridan

Troop 3 Boy Scouts en-
joyed a unique backpack-
ing and hiking experience
on Feb.16-17, as they ven-
tured to Econfina Creek in
Northern Bay County.
Boy Scouts Levin Berry,
Daniel Tillman, Mathew
lelham, Keary Nichols,
and Gavin Tharpe and
leaders Estelle Whiddon,
Andy Campbell, and Barry
Tillman had a fun-filled
weekend of new and excit-
ing activities together.
Scouts and leaders back-
packed, with all food and
needed supplies, for ap-
proximately one mile to
reach their campsite. Once
their tents and camping
area were ready, a lunch
of peanut butter and jelly
sandwiches was enjoyed
before beginning another
longer hike through the
beautifully wooded area
surrounding them.
After the 1.5 mile hike to
Two Penny bridge, Whid-
don led an informative
program on "Leave no
Trace", which is a closely-
followed principle of the

adhere to the guideline
that they should always
leave any area in as good
or better shape than when
they arrived, with no trash
left behind and nothing
disturbed in the balance of
nature.
During the hike, native
plants and different eco-,
systems were observed and
discussed as they stopped
along the way. After work-
ing up a big appetite for
supper, a special meal of


Pine Mountain Supreme, a
secret Troop 3 recipe, was
prepared and thoroughly
enjoyed by the campers.
A warm campfire was
built by the scouts, as the
evening temperatures be-
gan to quickly drop. Fol-
lowing Troop 3 tradition,
fun campfire games were
enjoyed and leader Andy
Campbell told captivat-
ing stories around the fire
to conclude the night's
activities.

High-stakes trial begins over 2010 Gulf oil spill


The Associated Press

NEW ORLEANS BP put
profits ahead of safety and
bears most of the blame
for the disastrous 2010
spill in the Gulf of Mexico,
a U.S. Justice Department
attorney charged Monday
at the opening of a trial
that could result in the oil'
company and its partners
being forced to pay tens of
billions of dollars more in
damages.
The London-based
oil giant acknowledged
it made "errors in judg-
ment" before the deadly
blowout, but it also cast
blame on the owner of the
drilling rig and the. con-
tractor involved in cement-
ing the well. It denied it
was grossly negligent,
as the government
contended.
The high-stakes civil case
went to trial after attempts
to reach an 11th-hour set-
tlement failed.
Eleven workers were
killed when the Deepwa-
ter Horizon rig leased by
the BP exploded on April
20, 2010. An estimated 172
millions of gallons of crude


THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
In this 2010 photo, a small oil-covered fish floats on the water's
surface at Bay Long off the coast of Louisiana. An 2010 explo-
sion at the BP Deepwater Horizon offshore platform killed 11
men, and the subsequent leak released an estimated 172 mil-
lion gallons of petroleum into the Gulf of Mexico.


gushed into the Gulf over
the three months that fol-
lowed in the worst offshore
oil spill in U.S. history.
Justice Department at-
torney Mike Underhill said
the catastrophe resulted
from BP's "culture of cor-
porate recklessness."
"The evidence will show
that BP put profits be-
fore people, profits before
safety and profits before
the environment," Under-
hill said in opening state-
ments. He added: "Despite


BP's attempts to shift the
blame to other parties, by
far the primary fault for
this disaster belongs to
BP."
BP attorney Mike Brock
acknowledged that the
oil company made mis-
takes. But he accused rig
owner Transocean Ltd. of
failing to properly main-
tain the rig's blowout
preventer, which had
a dead battery, and he
claimed cement contrac-
tor Halliburton used a


"bad slurry" that failed to
prevent oil and gas from
traveling up the well.
BP has already pleaded
guilty to manslaughter
and other criminal charges
and has racked up more
than $24 billion in spill-re-
lated expenses, including
cleanup costs, compensa-
tion for businesses and in-
dividuals, and $4 billion in
criminal-penalties.
But the federal govern-
ment, Gulf Coast states
and individuals and busi-
nesses hope to convince a
federal judge that the com-
-pany and its partners in
the ill-fated drilling project
are liable for much more
in civil damages under the
Clean Water Act and
other environmental
regulations.
One of the biggest ques-
tions facing U.S. District
Judge Carl Barbier, who is
hearing the case without
a jury, is whether BP acted
with gross negligence.
Under the Clean Wa-
ter Act, a polluter can be
forced to pay a minimum
of $1,100 per barrel of
spilled oil; the fines nearly
quadruple to about $4,300


a barrel for companies
found grossly negligent,
meaning BP could be on
the hook for nearly $18
billion.
The judge plans to hold
the trial in at least two
phases. The first phase,
which could last three
months, is designed to
determine what caused
the blowout and assign
percentages of blame to
the companies involved.
The second phase will de-
termine how much. crude
spilled into the Gulf.
During opening argu-
ments, BP and its part-
ners pointed the finger at
each other in a tangle of
accusations and counter-
accusations. But BP got
the worst of it, from its
partners and the plaintiffs
in the case.
Jim Roy, who represents
individuals and businesses
hurt by the. spill, said BP
executives applied "huge
financial pressure" to "cut
costs and rush the job."
The project was more than
$50 million over budget
and behind schedule at
the time of the blowout,
Roy said.


Tepid response in Miami over Castro retirement


The Associated Press

MIAMI For more than
five decades, Cuban exiles
in Miami have waited for
the Castro brothers to be
out of power.
The firmest step toward
that happening came
Sunday when Raul Castro
announced he plans to
retire as president within
five years. And yet, when
the news reached Flori-
da's shores it created little
more than a quiet ripple of
apathy.
"Cuba doesn't matter to
me anymore," Luis Sanz,
85, said as he watched
friends play dominoes.
Ayear after the 1959 revo-
lution, Sanz left behind his
clothing store in the Cu-
ban city of Camaguey and
started a new life in Miami.
He never returned. Many
older Cubans vowed not to
return until the Raul and
Fidel Castro were dead.
Now it appears retire-
ment rather than death
- will mark the end of
their days in power. Raul


Luis Sanz talks to a reporter at the Domino Park in the Little
Havana section of Miami, Monday, Feb. 25. Sanz fled Cuba
shortly after the Castro brothers and a band of revolutionaries
took power in 1959 and he never returned.


Castro has tapped Miguel
Diaz-Canel to be his top
lieutenant and possible
successor. So there is no
celebration in Miami. And
no protest either,
"I think everybody
thought there would be a
way of getting even for all
the things that had taken
place," said Andy Gomez,
a senior political fellow at
the University of Miami's
Institute for Cuban and


Cuban-American Studies.
"It's a little bit almost anti-
climactic. It's a little bit of
the same."
Raul Castro has insti-
tuted numerous eco-
nomic and social reforms
since taking power after
his older brother fell ill in
2006. Under his leader'
ship, private enterprise
has expanded, a real es-
tate market was legalized
and travel restrictions re-


laxed. In his speech Sun-
day, Castro said he hopes
to establish two-term
limits and age caps for
political offices as well.
But the core tenets of
socialism will remain, he
vowed.
Domingo Amuchastegui,
a former Cuban diplomat
in Guatemala, said the 52-
year-old Diaz-Canel is un-
likely to make any major
departures from Raul and
Fidel Castro's ideology.
"He will continue re-
designing the system in
Cuba,-as they areredesign-
ing it now," he said. "It's a
new conceptualization,
a redesign of the socialist
system, adapting, improv-
ing it.',
Cuban exiles and politi-
cians in Miami resound-
ingly said they will not
recognize Diaz-Canel a
legitimate leader if he rises
to the presidency.
"What today was white,
tomorrow is red andyester-
day was blue,': said Alberto
Faustino, 74, describing
what he sees as the Cuban


government's erratic deci-
sion making.
Faustino left Cuba 12
years ago to join his two
sons in the United States.
He said the selection, of
Diaz-Canel is no change
at all. And Raul Castro's
announcement caused
him neither happiness nor
anger.
"Nothing," he said.
In the past, an announce-
ment like the one Castro
made on Sunday might
have provoked a stronger
public reaction. But that
has changed in recent
years as the first genera-
tion of exiles dwindles and
newer arrivals have more
economic concerns.
Patricia de la Rosa, 45, the
manager of an ice cream
shop in Little Havana, said
her mother's generation
has mostly abandoned the
idea of returning or seeing
change in Cuba.
"For me, I think anything
is possible," de la Rosa
said. "Who's to say that
things won't change? But
it's going to take a lot."


Man dead following
small plane crash
WESLEY CHAPEL
- Authorities say one
man is dead following a
small plane crash in the
Tampa Bay area.
The Pasco County
Sheriff's Office reports
that single-engine plane
went down Sunday after
taking off from Tampa,
Aero Park North in Lutz.
Authorities on Monday
recovered the body
of 59-year-old Harold
Cameron MacManus,
who was heading home
to Tennessee.
The cause of the
crash remains under
investigation.

Court affirms new
Florida water rules
TALLAHASSEE A
state appellate court his
rejected a challenge
from environmental
groups to Florida's new
water pollution rules.
A three-judge panel
of the 1st District Court
of Appeal affirmed the
rules Monday without
comment.
The Florida Wildlife
Federation, Sierra Club
and three other groups
argued the rules are
scientifically unsound
and too weak to prevent
algae blooms from chok-
ing state waters.
They favor stricter
rules developed by the
U.S. Environmental
Protection Agency.

Ex-Fla. Senate president Childers gets new appeal


The Associated Press

TALLAHASSEE- Former
Florida Senate. President
W.D. Childers on Monday
received another .chance
to clear his name from the
U.S. Supreme Court.
The justices reversed a
.2011 decision by the 11th
U.S. Circuit Court of Ap-
peals, which had affirmed
Childers' bribery convic-
tion, and returned the
case to the Atlanta-
based court for further
consideration.
Childers' conviction
stemmed from his posi-
tion as an Escambia Coun-
ty commissioner, after the
.Pensacola Republican was
term-limited from the Sen-
ate in 2000.
Childers, who served as


Senate president in 1980-
82, has completed a 3V2
year prison term. Besides
clearing his name, a rever-
sal of his conviction could
restore a $2,500 monthly
pension.
His lawyer, Nathan Der-
showitz, said the high
court decision gives the
80-year-old Childers an-
other opportunity to chal-
lenge his conviction but it
does not guarantee it will
be reversed.,
"We're still fighting, he's
still fighting," Dershowitz
said.
Childers' daughter, Karen
Childers, said in an email
that they were ecstatic
about the high court's
decision.
"We have always main-
tained dad's innocence,


and we know my dad did
not get a fair trial because
his right to fully cross ex-
amine the only witness
against him was curtailed,"
she wrote.
At issue is whether
state courts, in uphold-
ing Childers' convic-
tion, considered if he had
been denied his federal
constitutional right to
cross-examine that wit-
ness, a fellow county
commissioner.
A 1996 U.S. law says fed-
eral courts cannot grant
state defendants relief
such as an appeal of un-
lawful imprisonment if
state courts already have
ruled on the same issue.
In a brief order, the Su-
preme Court cited an
opinion it had issued Feb.


20 in a California murder
case. In that ruling, the
justices said state courts
can be considered to have
ruled on all claims raised
by defendants even if their
rulings do not comment
on those issues.
However, defendants
must have an oppor-
tunity' to disprove that
assumption, the high court
ruled.
That'll be the next step in
Childers' case when it re-
turns to the 11th Circuit.
Childers filed his
appeal before the Cali-
fornia case, but it was de-
cided first because it was
an easier case, Dershowitz
said.
"Childers' case is much
more difficult and much
more complex," he said.

When the latest deluge

pulled his car up near the
front door of his house at

experience that his yard
would probably be soggy
and he didn't want to slog
through the mess. But
things got worse than he
thought. By mid-morning
on Monday, after a night
of relentless rain, he felt
trapped in the house with
his yard underwater. He
had to call AAA for help

Monday that all the town's

a good thing, because
by Monday at noon they
were all nearly full

He said he's talked to
Marianna officials about
the problem before and
that he has been told that
the city is working on the
issue. He's frustrated that
it hasn't already been tak-

thinks the municipality
should do something be-
fore it happens again. It

said, during another pe-

The city is working on
part of the problem by re-
structuring the park, which
should be completed well


coincidentally in the mid-
dle of a mission to deal
with stormwater issues in
town. With a background
in the field, she and an
engineer are assessing the
town's entire stormwater
management system in
hopes of improving it so
that the town has no ap-
preciable standing water
during rainy periods.
"I'm looking at every
single area of town; I drove
it with the engineer and
we're looking at every
ditch, every culvert, and
we're going to do every-
thing we can to get the wa-
ter flowing better through
town," Butts said. "We're
making sure our ditches
and culverts stay cleaned
out to keep water from
accumulating any more
than necessary, and we
may wind up lining some
ditches, replacing some
culverts, whatever we
need to do."

Chipola River
A trip across the Chipola
River bridge at US 90 in
Marianna gives a awe-
some glimpse of the
muddy water rising over
the banks.
The National Weather
Service in Tallahassee re-
corded a level of 19.09 feet
for the Chipola River at
US 90 in Marianna. That
reading was observed at
7:31 p.m. Monday, when
the NWS forecast for the
Chipola had it cresting at
24.3 feet Tuesday night.
That prediction is
comparable to recorded
historical crests of 24


before summer. It should

the city is done. But City
Manager Jim Dean says he
has no evidence that the
commercial development
Mack cites has anything
to do with the park's ten-
dency to pool or with the
problems on Mack's prop-
erty. The developer, Dean
believes, actually built a
larger stormwater reten-
tion area than was re-
quired. He said he would
look into the matter but
doubts the development
plays a role. He said Circle
Drive has always been a
problem.
Dean says he sympa-
thizes with the homeown-
er, but pointed out that
Mack's home is built in a
low area, below the crown
of the road that fronts it.
It was built in the 1940s,
just after WWII, and codes
weren't as stringent or as
well-founded back then.
Today, such construction
would not be allowed,
Dean said.

to use extreme care in that
area. There was some ac-
cumulation of water in
areas north of U.S.'90, and
a few other parts of town

Monday, and some areas
off Shady Grove Road had
some ponding as well.
A section of the county's

of Grand Ridge School

eyham said the teams
were opening culverts

up, so that the open chan-
nel could relieve the
pressure of accumulat-
ing water. Moneyham

cials should better-main-

rainwater, and that it
should consider installing
a pipe that would direct
any overflow from the re-

of key improvements were

The city recently built
its own wastewater treat-

every household and busi-
ness there into the new

abandon their old septic
tanks. The soggy ground
and continuing rain could
have left those households
without the ability to flush
toilets, to shower or to go

that depend on the septic

NY wife: Officer wanted to kill me, eat others


The Associated Press

NEW YORK The es-
tranged wife of a police of-
ficer struggled to keep her
composure Monday as she
testified about discover-
ing shocking online chats
and other evidence on his
computer showing he had
discussed killing her and
abducting, torturing and
eating other women.
"I was going to be tied up
by my feet and my throat
slit, and they would have
fun watching the blood
gush out of me because
I was young," Kathleen
Mangan-Valle told a Man-
hattan jury that one chat
revealed.
Mangan-Valle, 27, also
read about plans to put
one friend in a suitcase,
wheel her out of her build-
ing and murder her. Two
other women were "going
to be raped in front of each
other to heighten their
fears," while another was
going to be roasted alive
over an open fire, she said.
"The suffering was for his
enjoyment, and he wanted
to make it last as long as
possible," she said.
Mangan-Valle broke
down in tears several times,
but the emotional peak of
the day came when a de-
fense attorney showed her
pictures of Officer Gilberto
Valle in uniform feeding
their newborn daughter,
prompting her and Valle to
openly weep as the judge
sent the jury away for an
afternoon break.


Kathleen Mangan, (right) is driven from federal court Monday,
Feb. 25 in New York.


The drama came on the
first day of testimony at the
closely watched trial of the
28-year-old Valle, a baby-
faced defendant dubbed
the "Cannibal Cop" by city
tabloids.
Valle is accused of con-
spiracy to kidnap a woman
and unauthorized use of a
law enforcement database
that prosecutors say he
used to help build a list of
potential targets. A con-
viction on the kidnapping
count carries a possible
life sentence.
The officer has claimed
his online discussions of
cannibalism were harm-
less fetish fantasies. But
in opening statements
Monday, a prosecutor said
"very real women" were
put in jeopardy.
"Make no mistake," said
Assistant U.S. Attorney
Randall Jackson. "Gilbert
Valle was very serious
about these plans."


Defense attorney Julia
Gatto argued that her cli-
ent "never intended to kid-
nap anyone." She added:
"You can't convict people
for their thoughts, even if
they're sick."
A college graduate and
New York Police Depart-
ment patrolman, Valle ap-
peared to be leading a nor-
mal life before "things got
bad," his wife said. "Weird
stuff started happening."
Mangan-Valle testified
her husband began asking
questions about where she
liked to jog, what the light-
ing was like and whether
other people were around.
Using spyware on his com-
puter, she said, she uncov-
ered gruesome photos and
the names, heights and
weights of women.
:She also found that he
had visited a fetish web-
site that featured images of
dead women.

seen that before," she said.
Once Mangan-Valle fled
her home and reported his
strange behavior to the FBI
last year, agents uncovered
"a heinous plot to kidnap,
rape, murder and canni-
balize a number of very
real women," Jackson said.
The officer had attempt-
ed to contact potential
victims, including a New
York City elementary
school teacher, to learn
more about their jobs and
residences, the prosecutor
said. His Intern t research
also included the best
rope to tie someone up
with, recipes, human flesh,
white slavery and chemi-
cals that can knock some-
one out, Jackson said.
Gatto countered in her
opening statement that
there was "no proof of a
crime here. The charges
are pure fiction."
Valle, she said, had al-
ways been aroused by "un-
usual things," including
the thought of a woman
boiled down on a platter
with an apple in her mouth.
He found a home at a
fetish website with 38,000
registered members,
where regulars discuss
"suffocating women, cook-
ing and eating them," she
said.
The defense has denied
that Mangan-Valle was a
potential victim. Valle had
made clear that his wife
"was unavailable for any
kidnapping fantasy," the
defense has said in court
papers.

The director of the or-
ganization behind the
system, Jill Lesser of the
Center for Copyright In-
fringement, said in a blog
post Monday that the
program is "meant to ed-
.ucate rather than punish,
and direct (users) to legal
alternatives."
Each Internet provider
is expected to implement
their own system. The
program gives each cus-
tomer five or six "strikes"
after a music or film com-
pany has detected illegal
file-sharing and lodged
a complaint. The first
alerts are expected to be
educational, while the
third and fourth would re-
quire the customer to ac-
knowledge that they have
received the warnings
and understand their be-
havior is illegal. The final
warnings are expected to
lead to "mitigation mea-
sures," such as slowing a
person's Internet connec-
tion speeds.
Officials involved in the
effort acknowledge it's un-
likely to stop the biggest
violators. There are ways
to disguise an IP address
or use a neighbor's con-
nection that is unlocked.
Public wireless connec-
tions, such as those of-
fered at coffee shops, also
won't be monitored.

Lady Indians trounced by Gulf Coast, 92-59


BY DUSTIN KENT
dkent@jcfloridan.com
The end of the regular season
came to the No. 8 Chipola Lady
Indians with a thud Saturday
night in Panama City, as they
were routed 92-59 by the No. 10
Gulf Coast State Lady Commo-
dores, who clinched a share of
the Panhandle Conference title
with the win.
Gulf Coast (24-4 overall, 9-3 in
the Panhandle) also earned the
top seed from the conference in
the upcoming state tournament,
winning the tiebreaker over
Northwest Florida State (24-3, 9-
3) by taking two of three match-
ups in the regular season.
The Lady Indians (23-5, 8-4)
had already clinched a berth in


the state tournament, but Satur-
day's loss means they'll go in as
the third seed out of the Panhan-
dle and will likely need to win the
tourney in oider to make it to the
national tournament, with their
chances of earning an at-large
bid taking a big hit.
Tamara Taylor scored 36 points
to lead the Lady Commodores
on Saturday, with Jessica Morton
adding 21 points, and Necole
Sterling 15.
Jasmine Crawford had 21 points
off the bench to lead Chipola.

Holmes County gets

payback when it counts
BY DUSTIN KENT"
dkent@jcfloridan.com
BONIFAY- Holmes County star Chris Walker had
played the Malone Tigers at least once during each
of the last four seasons, and each time, he found
himself on the losing end.
But the 6-foot- 10 high school All American made
sure he didn't finish his high school career win-
less against the Tigers with perhaps the finest all-
around performance of his career Saturday.night
in the 1A Regional Final, leading the Blue Devils to
a stunning 55-47 upset win over the No. 2 Tigers to
lift Holmes County to a berth in the state semifi-
nals in Lakeland.
Holmes County had lost to Malone in a pre- *
season game in November of this season, and lost
three times to the Tigers last season, including a
50-48 playoff loss on a buzzer-beater in Malone.
But the Blue Devils finally broke through against .z j
the Tigers on Saturday, thanks mostly to a mon-
strous effort at both ends of the court by Walker,
who scored 22 of his 28 points in the second half
and dominated on defense with a bevy of shot
blocks and by altering even more.
"It feels good because it shows all the hard work
has paid off," Walker said after the game. "For us
to win over a rival like Malone when everything
counts, it feels great. I'm so excited."
Clayton Keen added 11 points for the Blue Dev-
ils, and Ty Russ had 10, while Malone got 17 points
from Ty Baker, 16 from Chai Baker, and 11 from

Hornets' improbable run comes to an end


BY DUSTIN KENT
dlenit(Ojcflo ridan.comI


The Cottondale Hornets' im-
probable postseason run came
to an end Saturday night in
Greensboro, as they fell to the
West Gadsden Panthers 61-39 in
the 1A Regional Final.
Marquis Brown scored 18
points to lead West Gadsden,
while Patrick Gilyard added 11,
and Brandon Shingles 10.
Jerodd Blount had 21 points
for the Hornets, with DJ Roulhac
adding nine.


Coltondale was in the game
early on, trailing just 10-9 after
the first quarter, but the Pan-
thers pushed the margin out to
eight at 25-17 at the halftime
break and started to pull away
in the third period.
The Panthers moved ahead
43-29 in the quarter and contin-
ued to build on their advantage
in the final period and held on
to win and avenge a regular sea-
son loss to the Hornets on Jan. 5
in Cottondale.

The Chipola Indians base-
ball team dropped two of three
games over the weekend on the
road, splitting a pair with St.
Johns River and losing to Polk.
Chipola opened up Friday
with a 10-0 loss to St. Johns
River, giving up eight runs over
the fourth, fifth, and sixth in-
nifigs, and surrendering 11 hits
while committing three defen-
sive errors.
Preston Johnson started on
the mound and took the loss,
going 4 1/3 innings and al-
lowing four earned runs on
seven hits, five walks, and three
strikeouts.
Thompson Geron gave up
three earned runs on three hits,
three walks, and four strikeouts
in 2 2/3 innings of relief, while
Jason Jabour allowed a run on
a hit and three walks in 2/3 of
an inning.
Bert Givens led Chipola of-
fensively with two of the team's
seven total hits.
The Indians came back with
a dominant effort in the re-
match with St. Johns River
on Saturday, winning 8-0 and

Horoscope
PISCES (Feb. 20-March
20) -You're likely to func-
tion far more effectively
when you can operate
independently.
ARIES (March 21-April
19) Usually, you don't
blab things that should be
kept to yourself, but today
you might not be able to
help telling on someone
whom you really dislike.
TAURUS (April 20-May
20) There are days ,
when socializing can be a
negative experience, and
it could be one of those
times. If this happens to
you, make a quick exit.
GEMINI (May 21-June
20) -Your peers could
find your motives suspi-
cious, so if you think this
to be true, make certain
everything you do is above
reproach.
CANCER (June 21-July
22) Even if you feel like
sounding off to someone
who really deserves it, it
would be best that you
don't.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)
- If you find yourself
involved in a financial
transaction that requires
a lot of paperwork, don't
get lazy and take things for
granted.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
- Friends will tolerate a
bit of restlessness on your
part, but not to the point
of changing group plans.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct.
23) -When conversing
with others, speak well of
friends who aren't present,
or say nothing at all.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov.
22) -To expedite certain
tasks or assignments, you
might be tempted to take
a few shortcuts. Unfor-
tunately, this might only
cause more work for you.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov.
23-Dec. 21) It'll reflect
poorly on your image
if you try to take credit
for something that you
had only a small part in
producing.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan.
19) Don't overreact if
another's point of view is
diametrically opposed to
yours. Show them respect.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb.
19) -When left to your
own devices, you're pretty
good at figuring things
out. Disregard any unso-
licited advice.


Annie's Mailbox


Dear Annie: I am a 21-year-old female,
quite independent, happy and full of life.
Last year I started dating "Luke," age 26.
We hit it off great, and I fell in love. But
two months ago, something changed.
Luke recently started a new company.
One day, he randomly decided he needed
a break from our relationship to focus
on his business. He made me promise to
stay faithful. After three weeks, we started
arguing. I found it stupid that I was sup-
posed to remain faithful while he was out
partying every weekend, going to bars and
clubs. He kept texting my sister, saying he
didn't want to be with me. When I'd con-
front him, he'd say he was only kidding.
I tried hard to work this out. Two weeks
ago, we planned to hang out, but Luke
didn't answer my calls. He never even
bothered to cancel our plans. I finally
had enough and sent him a text ending


Bridge


The best improvement in bridge in the last 20
years is the employment of "useless" cards to send
suit-preference signals.
Without this style of defense, West would have to
guess what to do in this deal. With suit preference,
it is easy.
How should the play and defense go in four
spades after West leads the diamond king?
South has four losers: three hearts and one di-
amond. (West cannot have the ace and king of
hearts, because his opening lead would have been
the heart ace, not the diamond king.) But South has
10 potential tricks: five spades, two diamonds and
three clubs. His best play is to take the first trick
and immediately to lead back his diamond jack. To
defeat the contract, West must win with his queen
and shift to a heart. But how will he know that is
right instead of a club switch?
At trick one, East plays his diamond two, discour-
aging. But on the second round, he can play the
seven or four. Wanting a heart shift, he drops the
seven, the higher card asking for the higher-rank-
ing of the other two side suits. Now West knows
exactly what to do.
If you have only low trumps, you can also use
those to send suit-preference signals. In this deal,
if South immediately draws trumps, East can play
eight-six-three-two, always the highest calling for
a heart.
The snag with these signals is that you and your
partner have to watch the cards very carefully. But
if you do, you will defeat more contracts.


things completely.
Annie, the entire two months we were
apart, I was a wreck. I still can't stop
thinking about him. I know I did the right
thing by breaking it off. But sometimes, I
am filled with regret, as if I wasn't a good
enough girlfriend. How can I be happy
again without faking it?
LOST IN MY HEART
Dear Lost This has nothing to do with
your value as a girlfriend. Luke was sim-
ply not the right guy. He didn't have the
courage to break things off in an honest
way and made himself repeatedly un-
available, hoping you'd take the initia-
tive and let him go. It is natural for you to
grieve the end of a relationship that you
expected to last. Surround yourself with
supportive friends and family, pamper
yourself, and "fake it until you make it."
Time will heal this. We promise.

SPORTS


JACKSON COUNTY I I OlIDAN W, www.jclloridan.com


Walker
From Page 1B
stepped forward and took
control.
Walker scored the first
six Holmes County points
of the second half, with a
.bucket by Jonathan Wil-
liams putting ,the Blue
Devils up 32-22 three
minutes into the second
half.
The lead was 11 late in
the third after a dunk by
Walker and a short jump-
er by Jonathan Williams,
but Chai Baker scored a
bucket and then hit a big
corner three-pointer at
the end of the period to
cut the margin back to
eight at 38-30.
Chai Baker came up
with a steal and two early
in the fourth to trim Hol-
mes County's lead to five,
but Keen answered with
a bucket and then Walker
followed his own miss
with an emphatic two-
handed put-back jam to
make it 42-33.
The Tigers finally were
able to make their move


Hornets
From Page 1B
Despite the loss, Hor-
nets coach Chris Ob-
ert said after the game
that he was proud of the
way his player acquitted
themselves against the
deep and talented West
Gadsden squad.
"I thought we played re-
ally hard and competed
throughout the game,"
he said. "We just had a
stretch towards the end
of the third (quarter) that
hurt us. But we fought
and came out playing
well. We had a little spurt
where we threw it away a
couple of times in the sec-
ond quarter and you can't
do that against a team like
that.
"But give (West Gads-
den) credit. They were
very active on defense
and they played hard and
with a lot of energy and
effort on defense just like
us."
West Gadsden won
despite getting just 12
combined points' from its
Stwo leading scorers, with.
second-leading scorer
Charis Fitzgerald scor-
ing only two points to go
along with leading scorer
Shingles' 10.
But the 6-foot-5 junior
center Brown picked up
the slack and caused the
Hornets problems at both
ends of the court.
"I thought (Norris Cal-
houn) did a real good job
on Shingles, and hold-
ing Fitzgerald to two was
big," Obert said. "But
Brown was a little bit of
a matchup problem for
us with his size and ath-
leticism and his skill. He
was able to handle the
ball and help .them bring
it up against our pressure,
and he also hurt us on the



Men
From Page 1B
just 4-of-17 from the field,
while Demetrious Floyd
and Earl Watson both
scored nine points.
The Indians struggled
mightily from the field
overall, shooting just
36.9 percent and whiffing
on all 12 three-point at-
tempts on the night.
With the win, the Com-
modores finished out
their season with a record
of 20-9 overall and 5-7 in
the Panhandle Confer-
ence to take a third-place
finish in the league.
For the Indians (25-4,
8-4), who had already
clinched a berth in the
state tournament, it was
the second loss in the,last
three games, previously
falling on the road 64-62
to Northwest Florida State
on Feb. 13 before bounc-
ing back last week to take
a 76-66 win over Pensaco-
la State.
Chipola will have a week
to regroup and prepare
for the postseason, which
begins March 6 against
IlPolk State in the open-


one gae at a time."



midway through the
fourth with a 9-0 run, with
Austin Williams scoring
five of the points, Chai
Baker getting a bucket
and a foul, and then hit-
ting 1-of-2 free throws to
tie the game 45-45 with
2:51 to play.
After Walker hit two, free
throws, Chai Baker fin-
ished a driving layup to
tie it back up, but Walker
again had the answer
with a tough hook shot
off glass to make it 49-47
Blue Devils with 1:32 to
play.
Malone failed to con-
vert on its next posses-
sion, and Walker made
two more free throws to
increase the margin to
four with 39 seconds on
the clock.
Chai Baker missed a
three on the Tigers' next
trip, and the Blue Devils
made 4-of-6 free throws


boards. That was prob-
ably the difference in the
game."
With the win, the Pan-
thers (24-8) advanced to
the state semifinals in
Lakeland today where
they will take on Union
County for a spot in
Wednesday's state cham-
pionship game.
For the Hornets (14-15)
the loss stops a four-game
winning streak that began
in the District 3-1A tour-
nament and followed an
eight-game losing streak
to end the regular season.
Cottondale started its
run with a victory over
Vernon in the first round
of the District 3-1A tour-
nament, followed by close
wins over Graceville in tri-
ple overtime and Sneads
in the league title game
to earn a home playoff
game in the 1A Regional
Semifinals..
The Hornets .took an-
other close victory over
Bozeman to advance to
Saturday's regional final
round, and despite fall-
ing short of a fifth straight
win, Obert said his mem-
ory of this team, especial-
ly the departing seniors,
will be of a group that got
the most out of its talent.
"I was just proud of
them," the coach said.
"The seniors we had, a lot
of them were a part of the
run we made a couple of
yeafs ago when we got to
the regional semis when
people were expecting us
to be down. They were
able to get it together and
win a playoff game and
get literally within a sec-
ond of going to a regional
final.
"That group was able
to maximize their ability,
and to see them do the
same thing this year, it's
just something I'm happy
and proud of for them."

With the win, the Blue
Devils moved to 18-8
on the year and are now
two wins from a state
championship.
They'll take on the Haw-
thorne Hornets on Tues-
day in Lakeland at 10:30
a.m. Central Standard
Time.
The Hornets have lost
just once this year, but the
Blue Devils appear to be
peaking at the right time,
with wins over Chipley in
the District 2-1A tourna-
ment title game and over
Malone on Saturday giv-
ing Holmes County a pair
of victories over top five
teams in their last three
outings.
"We're confident, but
we know we have to take
it one game at a time,"
Walker said. "But we're
very confident and we

racking up 15 hits to just
four for St. Johns River.
Givens was 3-for-4 with
a home run, two RBI, and
two runs, with Cameron
Gibson going 3-for-4 with
a double and a run, and
Clayte Rooks finishing 2-
for-4 with a run and two
RBI.
Luis Tunon also had
three hits for Chipola,
and Chase Nyman had
a hit, an RBI, and scored
twice.
Carlos Misell started on
the mound and pitched
five scoreless innings to
get the win, giving up just
two hits, walking no one,
and striking out five.
Shane Crouse pitched
two scoreless innings of
relief to close it out.

from the three-point line.
Leading scorers Ray-
ven Brooks and Kristine
Brance were held to 19
points total on a com-
bined 7-of-28 shooting
and 2-of-12 from three.
Gulf Coast State led 32-
25 at halftime but quickly
pushed the lead to double
digits early in the second
half and finished it off by
scoring the game's final
12 points. Up next for
both teams is the FCSAA
state tournament March
6-9 at Chipola, with Gulf
Coast opening up with
Santa Fe and the Lady In-
dians with Florida State
College.


The semifinals will be
March 8, with the champi-
onship game taking place
the following night.


"We're confident, but we know we have to take it


believe we can win (the
title)."
Malone's season ends
disappointingly with
a record of 25-3, with
Saturday's loss snapping
an eight-game winning
streak and giving the Ti-
gers their first loss to a 1A
opponent all season.
After the game, Tigers
coach Steven Welch said
his players were extremely
disheartened by the loss.
"It's the worst locker
room I've ever been in,"
the coach said. "We've
got eight guys in there
who won't be back, and
you can see just how
much they care about it.
There's no question about
the heart and desire. We
just couldn't make shots
tonight."
Malone has made a liv-
ing from the three-point
stripe all season long, but
couldn't find the range for
much of the night, while
Walker made it nearly
impossible for the Tigers
to get good looks in the
paint.
"Our -strength offen-
sively is our offensive re-


ing four runs in the top
of the second and three
more in the third, but
Polk stormed back with
two runs in the bottom of
the third and six more in
the fourth'to take the lead
for good.
No one scored over the
final five innings of the
game.
Kyle Schackne got the
win for Polk State with
three perfect innings
of relief of starter Brett
Jones, who got roughed
up by the Indians for five
earned runs on seven hits
and two walks.
Trey Norris closed it out
in the ninth inning to earn
the save.
Erik Hindmon was 2-
for-3 with a homer, three
RBI, and a run to lead
Polk State, with Paul John
Roundtree going 2-for-4
with three RBI as well.
For Chipola, Gibson was
3-for-4 with a home run,
two runs, and an RBI, and
Chase Rivett and Josh
Barber each had a hit and


two RBI.
Michael Mader started
and had a tough go of it,
giving up six earned runs
on five hits and three
walks, but it was reliever
Mikel Belcher who took
the loss for allowing
two earned runs on two
hits and a walk with five
strikeouts in an inning
and 2/3.
The losses dropped the
Indians to 12-9 on the
season and coach Jeff
Johnson said he was dis-
appointed that his team
took a bit of a step back
after a recent stretch of
winning five out of six.

bounding and (Walker)
took a lot of that away,
and our strength defen-
sively is forcing people
into taking tough shots in
the paint, and he took a lot
of that away," Welch said.
"Basically, everything we
do well, he counteracted
that to a degree."
It's the second straight
season that the Tigers
have won 25 games be-
fore falling short in the
regional finals, though
this one has to hurt worse
given Malone's large se'
nior class that won't get
a chance to add to the
school's considerable tro-
phy case.
But Welch said that the
sour ending won't change
the way he feels about a
group that won nearly 70
games over the past three
seasons.
"I just told them I love
them (after the game),"
the coach said. "Nobody
let anyone down, there
are no fingers to point,
or blame to assess. We
just came up a little
short. It just didn't go our
way."


"It was a bad week for us,"
he said. "I thought we had
made some strides, but we
went backwards a little bit.
I thought we were coming
on and I still feel like we are
a little bit. We had a chance
to win (against Polk) when
we were up 7-1, but we just
didn't get it done.
"We bounced back and
did some good things and
executed a little bit Satur-
day, but until we learn how
to play and do all the little
things to be successful,
we're not going to be very
good. We're seeing what
our deficiencies are, for
sure."

Brave's


new ace
The Associated Press

KISSIMMEE, Fla. -
Kris Medlen is not exactly
imposing listed at 5-
foot-10, and that's being
generous. He munches
on peanut butter-and-
honey sandwiches be-
fore every start. He never
stops fidgeting, whether
it's bouncing around
the clubhouse before a
game or just chatting up
a couple of players after a
spring training start.
In many ways, it's hard
to take this guy seriously.
Until he takes the
mound. That's when
he becomes the Atlan-
ta Braves' newest ace.
Medlen still seems a bit
uncomfortable with the
role of No. 1 starter, figur-
ing a more experienced
teammate such as Tim
Hudson'is better suited.
