Health department offers flood safety tips


From staff reports

The Jackson County Health Depart-
ment offers advice on handling issues
related to flooding.
Moving Flood Water
During flooding, the greatest threat
comes from moving water. The deeper
the moving water, the greater the threat.
Avoid driving in moving water, regard-
less of vehicle size.

Pooling Flood Water
Heavy rain causes flood waters to rise
and pool on streets and throughout
neighborhoods. In these situations, be
aware of the following:
) Road surfaces become obscured,
and drivers can unknowingly steer into
a deep body of water, such as a canal or
pond.
n Electricity from streetlights and pow-
er poles may be active through standing
water, causing a deadly shock to anyone
coming in contact with it.
) Children playing in contaminated
standing water can become sick or be
bitten by snakes or floating insects.


) People coming into contact with
floodwaters should thoroughly rinse
any exposed body parts with soap and
sanitized or disinfected water.

Contaminated Water Supply
Drinking contaminated water may
cause illness. Listen to local announce-
ments on safety of the water supply. If
your public water system is affected, a
boil water notice will likely be issued for
your area.
Individuals with private wells should
take precautions. If your well is in a
flooded area, your water may contain
disease-causing organisms and may not
be safe to drink.
DOH recommends one' of the
following:
) Use bottled water, especially for mix-
ing baby formula.
) Boil water for at least one minute be-
fore using it for drinking, washing, cook-
ing, etc.
) Disinfect water by adding eight drops
(about 1/8 tsp., which forms a puddle

A burglar broke into
the Chipola Family Min-
istries building on State
Road 71 late last year,
stealing a computer and
some cash that con-
tributors had brought
in that week to help buy
turkeys for needy local
families at Thanksgiving
and Christmas.
Ministries Direc-
tor Fred Cook was dis-
tressed, and reached out
to the community. He
didn't have to wait long
for a response.
A local church and an
anonymous donor each
offered up a computer,
so now CFM has two
of those. And all over

Troop 3 Boy Scouts practice wilderness skills


Special to the Floridan

Troop 3 Boy Scouts re-
cently held their monthly
meeting at the Scout Hut


at Wynn Street Park to
work on a long list of ob-
jectives to prepare for their
upcoming activities.
The first order of busi-


ness was to put away tents
and camping supplies
from their recent weekend
adventure of backpacking
and camping at Econfina
Creek near northern Bay
County.
Scouts listened intently
to a lesson on "Fire by
Friction" by Scoutmaster
Bill- Kleinhans. The scouts
worked diligently together
to try to create a fire with
two "sticks", while "Mr. K."
provided interesting infor-
mation about this and oth-
er skills to use for survival


in the wilderness.
Scouts discussed and
made more plans for their
two upcoming big fund-
raisers: Troop 3's annual
chili dinner and a huge
yard sale scheduled for
May 11. Troop 3 scouts are
hard at work to raise funds
to help all scouts have
the opportunity to attend
Camp Alaflo this coming
June. The Marianna Opti-
mist Club is the chartering
organization for Troop 3
Boy Scouts.

Kicking







the can
U.S. Rep. Ted Yoho is fond of saying that he
dislikes the phrase "kicking the can down the
road."
The Gainesville Republican has said that he instead
wants to "stomp on the can" and immediately deal with
issues such as the nation's budget deficit.
That's a'noble position, but perhaps not always the
most practical approach. If Yoho takes a hard-line
stance on solely cutting government spending and not
supporting any tax increases, it would not be in the best
interests of his constituents.
Sequestration is the most pressing example. If Con-
gress does nothing about the $85 billion in automatic
spending cuts set to begin Friday, local residents will
eventually be hurt in a number of ways.
The University of Florida has students who rely
on federal aid and faculty who use federal grants to
research medical breakthroughs and other innova-
tions. About 6,250 fewer low-income students in Florida
would receive financial aid and around 1,700 fewer stu-
dents in the state would get work-study jobs that help
them pay for college under sequestration, according to
the White House.
Cuts to child-care subsidies, Head Start, K-12 schools
and funding for vaccinations would hurt younger stu-
dents. The rest of us would feel the impact of everything
from the higher meat prices caused by fewer food
inspectors to grounded or delayed flights caused by
reductions in air-traffic controllers.
Of course, sequestration is a slow-moving train
wreck and not everything would happen at once. But
ifYoho and other House Republicans refuse to budge in
the long term, there will be enough pain to go around.
The process could end up derailing the economic
recovery.
This country clearly has a long-term problem with
deficits adding to a massive debt. But the discretionary
domestic programs affected by the sequester amount to
just a small percentage of federal spending. Entitlement
programs such as Social Security, Medicare and Med-
icaid must be cut or reformed to truly get the deficit
under control.
President Obama and Congressional Democrats
must be willing to make those changes for the good
of the country and the chance for a deal. But House
Republicans must also accept that more revenue is
needed. There's something out of whack when
billionaire Warren Buffett's secretary pays a higher
tax rate than he does, while social media behemoth
Facebook pays no taxes and instead gets a $429 million
rebate.
Defense is another big budget drain, but one that
sequestration would affect. Some Congressional
Republicans have been more concerned about those
cuts, saying that they could hurt national security. But
cuts to bloated Pentagon programs also need to be on
the table in a comprehensive budget deal.
Yoho has shown some early signs of understanding
that his first duty is representing his constituents. He
refused to sign Grover Norquist's tax pledge and has
been assigned to committees of local importance such
as agriculture and its subcommittee on research and
biotechnology.
Now he must show that he's willing to compromise
if it benefits his constituents. If "kicking the can down
the road" means supporting a short-term delay to
sequestration in order to reach a long-term deal on
spending and taxes, Yoho should do it.

A new education standard



for the American dream


In his recent State of the Union
message, President Obama
mentioned the high cost of
higher education. It's an issue he
raised a year ago at the same venue
and one the vice president has
been spearheading.
For those of us who have not
been on a college campus for
some time, these are important
reminders of the issue's growing
significance.
Obama also has donned the
mantle of the champion of the
middle class, a major theme in his
re-election campaign. At least 85
percent of all Americans think of
themselves as middle class, and
most Americans, except the rich,
.aspire to be members of the middle
class.
The essence of the American
.dream, for at least a century and a
half, has been the hope for upward
mobility, rising to or within the
middle class. And the major vehicle
has been education. Moreover,
equal access to education is vital to
maintaining the American dream.
A century ago that meant ac-
cess to public education through
the high school level. A high
school diploma was the keyto
advancement.
Since World War II, this standard
has been changing, and we're
now at the point where a college
degree has replaced the high school
diploma as one of the keys to ad-
vancement. Possession of a college
degree today is as important as


holding a high school diploma was
a century ago.
Today, undergraduate education
should be open to
all those academi-
cally qualified and
at no cost. Public
education must be
-truly public at least
Richard through the bache-
Crepea lor's degree.
It is not a surprise
to those of us in
public higher education to see an
increasing number of reports on
the decline of upward mobility
in America. It should, in fact, be
quite alarming across America that
European societies are displaying
more upward mobility than our
own, even the once-class-divided
British world.
When I finished my under-
graduate education, I walked away
without any debt. When I finished
my MA., it was the same. When I
finished my Ph.D., I had some debt,
but it was not a burden to pay back
over a decade.
If I received a Bachelor of Arts
from an American public university
today, given the same background
out of which I came, I would be
leaving with a backpack of debt
that would not only be a burden
for a decade but would make it dif-
ficult to get an MA., let alone a
Ph.D.
The upward mobility I experi-
enced would not have taken place,
and my life would have been


considerably different. Who knows
where that might have led.
It is difficult to watch undergrad-
uates who are working full-time
try to survive in a college classroom
taking a full academic load. They
face such a struggle because of the
pressure to finish the degree as fast
as possible.
Some never make it for a variety
of reasons, and financial issues are
nearly always a significant ele-
ment. If they do make it, they walk
away with considerable debt and
a difficult job market and start to
their working career, and they may
carry these burdens far behind the
starting gate.
Presidents and other high ad-
ministrators can talk all they want
about the cost of higher educa-
tion and the need to bring it aown
- and they should but today,
they also must talk how important
is the college degree. And they
must devise ways to make that de-
gree as accessible for this genera-
tion as a high school diploma was
for generations past.
If society can't deliver on that
imperative, it is time to lay the
American dream to rest and
watch longingly as other cultures
create the means of social and
economic mobility that allow
their young people to dream a
dream that may now be fading in
America.

Law should require citizens to insure mobile homes


recent news reports about
continued controversy at Cit-
izens Insurance Corporation
have mobile home owners and the
manufactured housing industry
immensely worried.
This coming legislative session,
the Federation of Manufactured
Home Owners of Florida (FMO)
and the Florida Manufactured
Housing Association (FMHA) are
asking lawmakers to pass legisla-
tion that will make crucial changes
to how Citizens values property
insurance policies for mobile home
owners.
Over the summer, mobile home
owners made us aware of an issue
relating to the mechanism Citizens
has in place to assess the replace-
ment or market value for their
homes.
Citizens does not take into ac-
count any improvements made to
the home, the home's location or
any of the, amenities available to
the home owner. Further, Citizens
advised its policyholders it would
drop coverage of their mobile
home-related structures, putting
policyholders at great risk in the
event of a major storm or cata-
strophic event.
Senate Bill 378 and House Bill 573
by Sen. Aaron Bean and Rep. Ed
Hooper will provide a critical fix for
mobile- and manufactured-home
owners by reinstating insurance
coverage for the full value of their
entire home.
The proposed legislation would


require Citizens to assess ad-
equately and realistically the value

mobile homes better
to protect the people
who can least afford
to go uninsured and
who cannot find
Charlie insurance in the
Gallagher voluntary market.
To appreciate the
magnitude of this
issue, it's important to understand
there is no private market for
mobile home insurance and, for
them, Citizens is truly the insurer of
last resort. And while we under-
stand that most of the discussions
surrounding Citizens center on
reducing the risk and shrinking the
market share of Citizens, until that
happens, we need to make sure
that we help protect homeown-
ers who do not have the option of
either self-insuring or transitioning
to the private market.
Citizens may claim that this fix
will result in additional costs for
state government; however, they
must own up to the full extent of
their responsibility to the estimated
165,000 mobile- or manufactured-
home owners they now insure
Further, without adequate
property insurance coverage,
mobile- and manufactured-home
owners are forced to violate legal
obligations outlined in the 'Florida
Mobile Home Act' and potential
buyers would be discouraged by
the prospect of inadequate insur-


ance coverage, which would pres-
ent even bigger problems for the
state.
This exclusion in coverage di-
rectly affects the sale and resale of
a home and, primarily, the ability
for a potential buyer to obtain the
financing needed to make a pur-
chase. Currently, Citizens uses the
Blue Book to determine the value
of the home.
If this mechanism is allowed to
continue, a potential buyer who
needs financing to purchase the
home will only be able to borrow
the insurable value, instead of the
realistic value of the home, which
is as bad for the home owner as for
the seller.
This year, we urge lawmakers to
consider important policy
changes such as this and not let
the continued negative coverage
on Citizens overshadow the critical
.need these vulnerable home
owners have to be adequately
protected while their policies are
still in place.
In short, while a long-term plan
to reduce risks for Citizens begins
to take shape, this short-term fix is
critical and should be enacted to
help protect the homeowners who
are least able to help themselves.

Justices affirm


stay for Florida


trooper's killer


The Associated Press

STARKE The U.S. Su-
preme Court refused to
lift a stay of execution for
a South Florida drug traf-
ficker convicted of killing
a state trooper with a pipe
bomb, its decision issued
hours before the inmate
was set to die by lethal in-
jection Tuesday.
The Atlanta-based 11th
U.S. District of Appeal on
Monday had temporarily
blocked the execution so it
could consider a last-ditch
appeal from Paul Augus-
tus Howell, a 47-year-old
native of Jamaica.
The state appealed
that decision to Justice
Clarence Thomas who
referred the case to the
full court, which then or-
dered the stay to remain
in effect. Howell had been
scheduled for execution in
Florida State Prison near
Starke.
"We are grateful that Mr.
Howell did not become
the first person in Florida
to be executed without
the opportunity to have
his federal habeas claims
considered on the merits,"
said Michael Ufferman,
one of Howell's lawyers.
Howell is appealing
under what's known as
the right of "habeas cor-
pus," which in this case
would require the state
to prove it is justified in


detaining him.
Howell was convicted of


wrapped


killing Fldr-
ida ,High-
way Patrol
Trooper Jim-
my Fulford
21 years ago
with a bomb
placed in-
side a gift-
microwave


oven. Authorities said
the booby-trapped pack-
age was intended, to kill
two women in the Pan-
handle town..of Marianna
because they knew too
much about a drug-re-
lated murder in Broward
County.
Fulford stopped a car
for speeding as it was
transporting the pack-
age on Interstate 10 in
Jefferson County just
east of Tallahassee on
Feb. 1, 1992. A father
of two, the trooper was
killed instantly when
he opened the package
after sheriff's deputies
had picked up the driver,
who lacked a valid license,
along with a passenger.
The trooper's wife, Keith
Ann Fulford, later asked a
judge to condemn Howell
to death at his sentencing
hearing, saying he could
have told Fulford not to
open the package. "What
Paul Howell did was mur-
der my husband in cold
blood," she told the judge.

Man guilty of killing
girlfriend
CLEARWATER- A
Tampa Bay area man has
been convicted of killing
his girlfriend and burying
her body in his backyard.
A Pinellas County jury
took less than an hour
Tuesday to find 37-year-
old William Routenberg
guilty of second-degree
murder. He faces a pos-
sible life sentence.
Detectives received
information in the sum-
mer of 2011 that a ho-
micide had occurred in
an unincorporated area
near Clearwater. During
a search of Routenberg's
home, deputies found the
body of Shanessa Lynn
Chappie, 24. Authorities
say Routenberg confessed
to killing the woman dur-
ing an argument. Chappie
was living with Routenberg
at the time of her death.


BP executive testifies
at gulf oil spill trial
NEW ORLEANS A
high-fanking BP executive
testified Tuesday that the
London-based oil giant
and its contractors share
the responsibility for pre-
venting blowouts like the
one that killed 11 workers
and spawned the nation's
worst offshore oil spill in
2010.
Lamar McKay, who was
president of BP America
at the time of the Deep-
water Horizon disaster,
is the first BP executive
to testify at a federal trial
designed to identify the
causes of BP's Macondo
well blowout and assign
percentages of blame to
the companies involved.
Rig owner Transocean
and cement contractor
Halliburton also are de-
fendants at the trial, which
began Monday.

The Associated Press

FORT MYERS As her
music played in the back-
ground, country music
star Mindy McCready was
remembered Tuesday by
friends and family as a fun
and talented singer who
also "wanted to be healed"
from her past.
About 200 friends and
family gathered in the 37-
year-old singer's Florida
hometown of Fort Myers.
A large screen behind the
altar of Crossroads Baptist
church was filled with her
images and her portrait
stood nearby.
"Our Mindy was so
tired. She felt helpless,"
said McCready's mother,
Gayle Inge. "She was in her
darkest moment and she
was hurt by so many alle-
gations. She was too emo-
tional to understand."
McCready, whose real
name was Malinda Gayle
McCready, committed
suicide Feb. 17 at her
home in Arkansas, days
after leaving a court-or-
dered substance abuse
treatment program. The
mother of two died from
a single gunshot to the
head about a month after
her longtime boyfriend
David Wilson's death, also
thought.to be suicide, in
the same place.
Inge acknowledged that
her daughter had faced
many battles but now:
"Her spirit found healing
on the other side."
McCready's personal
problems started in 2004
and included a custody
battle with her mother
over one of her sons. She
was briefly hospitalized in
2010 after police respond-
ed to an overdose call to a
home her mother owned
in North Fort Myers, Fla.,
and she later appeared on
"Celebrity Rehab with Dr.
Drew," where she declared
herself clean from drugs.
McCready's family
declined to address any
custody issue at the
funeral.

even death, could sepa-

Inge said of McCready's
two sons, Zander Ryan
and Zayne Christopher.
"She's healed. She's no
longer sick," she added,
referring to what she told
McCready's sons.
A separate funeral
organized by her friends
and the music communi-
ty is tentatively scheduled
for March 6 in Nashville,
Tenn;
McCready's stepfather,
brothers and cousin also
shared their fondest -
and often funny mem-
ories of McCready.
"You all know I grew
up coming from a bro-
ken home," said brother
Timothy McCready, wip-
ing away tears. "It makes
your brothers and sisters
really important to you.
We used to joke about how
she raised us...we raised
each other, all of us. And
she probably got us all in
a lot more trouble than
she got us out of," he later
joked about his sister.
"I just know that Mindy
is on vacacioun where she
is," said younger brother
Skylar Phelan, referring to
how McCready often used
the Latin word for "vaca-
tion" to get out of chores.

DEBORAH BUCKHALTER/FLORIDAN
en a resident of Compass Lake in the Hills heard someone calling out from the direction of the lake,
he looked out and saw a young man in the water
far from shore. He had abandoned his boat and
was trying to swim in. Concerned that the person wouldn't
make it that far in the chilly, wind-chopped water, the man
called for help. Assigned to the subdivision, Jackson County
Deputy James Speights was summoned and he called for a
county rescue team. The subdivision's volunteer fire crew also
responded. Volunteer firefighter Joe Barrick was the first to
reach the water. He launched his own boat with Speights also
aboard, and the two motored out to help the swimmer, Hobie
Obert. Barrick, seated in front boat, and Speights (above)
helped Obert out of the water and then towed his disabled
boat in, with Obert steering his own vessel to shore behind
Barrick's boat (right). Obert said he was grateful for the ride.

LOCAL & NATION


'Please, please
do not respond
to these e-mails'

From staff reports
The Jackson County
Sheriff's Office has been
getting reports of citizens
receiving emails in
reference to lotteries. The
agency says the emails
are part of a scam.
Recipients get
notification that they
have "won a lottery"
through emails with
"EURO LOTERIA ESP" or
other heading at the top
of the message. v
Suspect emails tell
readers that to begin the


process of claiming their
supposed prize, make
contact via a provided
email address or phone
number.
JCSO, in a Tuesday press
release, said these emails
are scams to get money
or bank information and,
"please, please do not
respond to these emails."
The agency says that if
you send money to the
scammers or if money is
taken from your account
after you give them your
bank details, no one can
get it back.
Those with questions
are advised to contact
the sheriff's office or their
local law enforcement
agency.


Senate vote
confirms Hagel
WASHINGTON A
deeply divided Senate vot-
ed on Tuesday to confirm
Republican Chuck Hagel
to be the nation's next
defense secretary, handing
President Barack Obama's
pick the top Pentagon job
just days before billions
ofdollars in automatic,
across-the-board budget
cuts hit the military.
The vote was 58-41, with
four Republicans joining
the Democrats in' backing
the contentious choice.
Hagel's only GOP sup-
port came from former
colleagues Thad Cochran
of Mississippi, Dick Shelby
of Alabama and Mike
Johanns of Nebraska all
three had announced their
support earlier and
Rand Paul of Kentucky.
The vote came just hours
after Republicans dropped
their unprecedented delay
of a Pentagon choice and
allowed the nomination to
move forward on a 71-27
vote.

Breast cancer up
in younger women
CHICAGO -Advanced
breast cancer has in-
creased slightly among
young women, a 34-year
analysis suggests. The
disease is still uncom-
mon among women
younger than 40, and the
small change has experts
scratching their heads
about possible reasons.
The results are poten-
tially worrisome because
young women's tumors
tend to be more aggressive
than older women's, and
they're much less likely to
get routine screening for


the disease.
Still, that doesn't explain
why there'd be an increase
in advanced cases and
the researchers and other
experts say more work is
needed to find answers.

Report of boat
sinking possible hoax
SANTA CRUZ, Calif. -
The Pacific Ocean either
swallowed an adventurous
couple and two young
children aboard a sailboat
off the Monterey coast this
week, or someone played
a cruel hoax that wasted
Coast Guard resources
and tugged at the hearts
of coastal residents over
two days of desperate
searching.
The Coast Guard on
Tuesday called off the
search for a boat that
reportedly sank in rough
seas far off the Central
California coast, saying
nothing more could be
done and that the family's
distress calls might have
been a hoax.
"We've exhausted the
possibilities," Coast Guard
Chief Petty Officer Mike
Lutz said. The Coast Guard
is treating the incident as
a rescue, with the possibil-
ity the calls came from a
trickster. Neither the fam-
ily nor the boat has been
reported missing.


Second snowstorm
hits Midwest
KANSAS CITY, Mo.
- For the-second time
in a week, a major winter
storm paralyzed parts of
the nation's midsection
Tuesday, dumping a fresh
layer of heavy, wet snow
atop cities still choked


with piles from the previ-
ous system and making
travel perilous from the
Oklahoma panhandle to
the Great Lakes.
The weight of the snow
strained power lines and
cut electricity to more
than 100,000 homes and
businesses. At least three
deaths were blamed on
the blizzard.
The Missouri Depart:
ment of Transportation
issued a rare "no travel"
advisory, urging people
to stay off highways
except in case of a dire
emergency.

DHS releasing illegal
Immigrants
WASHINGTON -A
week before mandatory
budget cuts go into ef-
fect across the govern-
ment, the Department of
Homeland Security has
started releasing illegal


immigrants being held in
immigration jails across
the country, Immigration
and Customs Enforce-
ment said Tuesday.
Gillian Christensen, an
ICE spokeswoman, said
ICE has reviewed "several
hundred cases" of im-
migrants being held in
jails around the country
and released them in the
last week. They have been
"placed on an appropri-
ate, more cost-effec-
tive form of supervised
release," she said.
Christensen said the
agency's "priority for
detention remains on
serious criminal offenders
and other individuals who
pose a significant threat
to public safety." She did
not say how released im-
migrants were selected
or whdt jails they were
released from.

Martin hopes to bring stability to Bulldogs


BY DUSTIN KENT
dkentAbjcfloridan.com

For the second time in little over a
month, the Marianna Bulldogs baseball
team will have to adjust to a new head
coach, as former MHS coach Carlan
Martin was named the new head man
Monday replacing Steve Dewitt, who
resigned Thursday just over five weeks
since taking the job and four games into


this season.
Dewitt was named the Marianna
coach after previous coach Andy Shel-
ton was let go in mid-January after five
seasons at.the helm.
But Dewitt, who couldn't be reached
for comment, resigned his post late last
week, and Martin was named as his
successor effective immediately.
Martin previously was the head base-
ball coach at MHS for five seasons


between 2003-2007 before spending a
year at Holmes County High School and
then returning the following year.
He has been a teacher and assistant
football coach in the years since, but
Martin said that he is excited to get a
chance to coach baseball again, even if
it's not under optimal circumstances.

The Holmes County
Blue Devils moved one
step away from a 1A state
championship Tuesday
in Lakeland, taking a
51-48 victory over the
Hawthorne Hornets in
the state semifinals in
Lakeland.
Chris Walker posted
a triple-double with 20
points, 13 rebounds and
13 blocked shots to lead
the Blue Devils to their
19th win of the season
and deal the Hornets just
their second loss all year.
The 6-foot-10 senior
played just 22 minutes
due to foul trouble in
the second half, but
controlled the game at
both ends of the court
when he was in the
game, and won the in-
dividual matchup with
6-foot-6 Hornets star
Ed Porter, who finished
with 16 points to lead his
team.
As Hawthorne's only
player taller than 6-feet,
Porter was tasked with
going head-to-head with
Walker all day, but the
Hornets' sophomore star
had a hard time getting
his shot off in the paint
when the senior McDon-
ald's All American was in
the game.
Porter knocked down
a jump shot early to put
the Hornets up 3-2 in the
game's opening minutes,
but that turned out to be
Hawthorne's only lead of


the game.
Jacky Miles and Jona-
than Williams knocked
in back-to-back three-
pointers for Holmes
County, and Walker fol-
lowed with a three-point
play to make it 11-3 Blue
Devils late in the first
period.
Two more baskets by
Walker in the second
quarter made it 17-8
Holmes County, but a
three-pointer by ayquan
Hamilton and two from
Porter cut the margin to
five late in the half.
But a basket by Walker
and another by Chris-
topher Newton with
one second on the clock
put the Blue Devils up
25-16 at the halftime
break.
The Hornets fought
back in the third quar-
ter by intensifying their
defensive pressure and
forcing Holmes County
into a bevy of turnovers.
Holmes County turned
the ball over on its first
three possessions of
the second half, with
buckets by Nicholas Ch-
isholm, Hamilton, and
Deandre Turner getting
the Hornets within three
at 25-22.
A steal and bucket by
Turner cut the margin
to two and that's where
it remained after three
quarters, with Walker sit-
ting out the last two min-
utes of the third quarter

the baseball program," he said.
"I'll be the first one to say that
there has been a lot of negative
stuff out there lately, but to me
it's a good program and a well-
established program. I think
we've got some good kids in
here. Now that I've had a chance
to catch my breath, I'm excited
to get started and see where this
takes us."
Martin first met with the team,
which is 3-1 so far, on Monday


evening, and he said the first
item of business was to get all
of the players on the same page
and quickly.
"The big thing is that this is
the third coach of the season for
these kids, which is very unusual
obviously, so the biggest thing
is trying to get everybody to gel
together," he said. "The thing
about it is that Marianna has a
very good tradition in baseball
and one of the things I'm trying
to bring to the kids is them being
a part of that tradition and doing
their part. The players change
and the coaches change, but the
tradition stays the same.


"I want to be positive with them
and not come in and brow-beat
them because all this stuff really
has nothing to do with them. I'm
trying to be as upbeat as I can
be. But they're nervous. They
want to know if they're going to
be taken care of."
The coach said that given the
nature of the situation and him
coming in after the season has
already started, the onus is on
him to figure out how to connect
with his new players and adapt
to the personnel and personali-
ties that he has inherited.
"I'm the one that's in late, so
it will be very difficult for me


to come in and inject a bunch
of different things until I have
a chance to see them," Martin
said. "Right now, I'm watching
and learning as I go. The one
thing about baseball is you've got
to win it at the end, and we've got
a lot of time between now and
then for me to ease myself into it.
1 like what I see. I think we've got
a good nucleus. We're 3-1 so it's
not like it's broke; it's just a mat-
ter of holding the fort together
and building from there.
"But usually we've had a sum-
mer with them to try to teach the
kids a system, and once you un-
derstand your role in a system,


then they can teach it on down
to the other kids. It will take a
little bit of time to inject what I
want to get in with them. I won't
do it overnight. We've still got a
long season to go. We just have
to take it one week at a time, one
day at a time, and one game at a
time."
The Bulldogs were scheduled
to play Blountstown on Tues-
day night on the road, but the
game was postponed due to
weather.
Marianna's next scheduled
game is Friday on the road in the
team's district opener against the
Walton Braves.

after picking up his third
foul.
Walker re-entered the
game to start the fourth
and immediately made his
presence felt, scoring on
Holmes County's first pos-
session and then blocking
a Hawthorne shot the next
time down the court.
A driving finish and
three-point play by Walker


made it 41-32 with 5:10 to
play, but Walker was whis-
tled for a technical foul
moments later for taunt-
ing after a Hawthorne
player gave a hard foul on
a breakaway.
That gave Walker his
fourth foul and sent him
to the bench, but the Blue
Devils got a basket by Ty
Russ and two free throws
from Miles to push the
lead to 46-34 with just
under three minutes to
play.


Panthers

the run and Shingles added two tri-
ples, as West Gadsden carried a 36-
22 edge into the half.
Union County got the margin back

NEW YORK With
Danica Patrick starting

Walker came back in

III1: ASSOCIAII: I'PRESS II.l:
In this April 8, 2012 photo, Charl Schwartzel (right) of South
Africa, helps Bubba Watson put on the green jacket after
winning the Masters golf tournament in Augusta, Ga.

Bubba, a palm tree at

Augusta, and a ring


The artistic, majestic
wedge out of the
trees and onto the
10th green at Augusta
National.
The tearful
celebra-
tion.
Slipping
into that
beauti-
Doug ful green
Frguson jacket for
the first
time in
Butler Cabin. The trophy
presentation.
Bubba Watson finally
had a chance to catch his
breath when he sat
down for dinner to
honor the latest Masters
champion.
And that's when it hit
him.
"We're all upstairs at
the dinner and he said,
'Dude, do you realize
what this means?"' cad-
die Ted Scott recalled.
"And we're thinking,
'Yeah, Bubba. You're the
Masters champion. This
is a pretty big deal.' He


stops dead in his tracks
and he says, 'I've got to
buy Paul that ring.'"
Paul Tesori, the caddie
for Webb Simpson, was
listening to the playoff on
the radio while driving
home to Florida when
Watson made his
incredible escape and
beat Louis Oosthuizen
with a par. Tesori smiled
when he thought about
the ring and wondered
if Watson even remem-
bered his promise.
Leave it to Watson to
have instant recall of
such an insignificant mo-
ment compared with the
magnitude of winning
the Masters.
There are 350 variet-
ies of more than 80,000
plants at Augusta Nation-
al, but only one palm tree
on the golf course. It now
takes on new meaning
for Watson, a reminder of
how he ruined a caddie's
bet with his wife over a
wedding ring and made
up for it by winning a
green jacket.


The Associated Press

JOHANNESBURG-
Even if Oscar Pistorius is
acquitted of murder, fire-
arms and legal experts in
South Africa believe that,
by his own account, the
star athlete violated basic
gun-handling regulations
and exposed himself to a
homicide charge by shoot-
ing into a closed door
without knowing who was
behind it.
Particularly jarring for
firearms instructors and
legal experts is that Pisto-
rius testified that he shot
at. a closed toilet door,
fearing but not knowing
for certain that a nighttime
intruder was on the other
side. Instead ofan intruder,
Pistorius' girlfriend Reeva
Steenkamp was in the toi-
let cubicle. Struck by three
of four shots that Pistorius
fired from a 9 mm pistol,
she died within minutes.
Prosecutors charged Pis-
torius with premeditated
murder, saying the shoot-
ing followed an argument
between the two. Pistorius
said it was an accident.
South Africa has strin-
gent laws regulating the
use of lethal force for self-
protection. In order to get
a permit to own a firearm,
applicants must not only
know those rules but must
demonstrate proficien-
cy with the weapon and
knowledge of its safe han-
dling, making it far tough-
er to legally own a gun in
South Africa than many
other countries where a
mere background check
suffices.
Pistorius took such a
competency test for his
9 mm pistol and passed
it, according to the South
African Police Service's
National Firearms Center.
Pistorius' license for the
9 mm pistol was issued
in September 2010. The
Olympic athlete and Para-
lympic medalist should
r have known that firing
blindly, instead of at a
clearly identified target, vi-
olates basic gun-handling
rules, firearms and legal
experts said.


"You can't shoot through
a closed door," said An-
dre Pretorius, president of
the Professional Firearm
Trainers Council, a regu-
latory body for South Af-
rican firearms instructors.
"People who own guns
and have been through the
training, they know that
shooting through a door.
is not going to go through
South African law as an
accident."
"There is no situation in
South Africa that allows a
person to shoot at a threat
that is not identified," Pre-
torius added. "Firing mul-
tiple shots,, it makes it that
much worse ...It could
have been a minor a 15-
year-old kid, a 12-year-old
kid breaking in to get
food."


Heat outlast Kings in 20T


The Associated Press

MIAMI LeBron James
had 40 points and a ca-
reer-high 16 assists, Dwy-
ane Wade scored 39 and
the Miami Heat pushed
their winning streak to 12
games by outlasting the
Sacramento Kings 141-
129 in double overtime on
Tuesday night.
RayAllen added 21, Chris
Bosh finished with 15 and
Chris Andersen had 10 for
the Heat, who remained
six games clear of second-
place Indiana in the East-
ern Conference standings.
Miami's 12-game win-
ning streak is the longest
in the NBA and matches
the second-longest in fran-
chise history.
"Our ball club, we don't
get rattled, no matter
what's going on during the
course of the game," James
said. "If it's overtime, dou-
ble-overtime, we find a
way to win."
Marcus Thornton scored
36 points for Sacramento,
the most by any reserve in
the NBA this season. De-
Marcus Cousins finished
with 24 points and 15 re-
bounds, Tyreke Evans add-
ed 26 points, John Salmons
15 and Isaiah Thomas 14
for the Kings.
James became the first
NBA player to finish with
at least 40 points and 16
assists since Kevin Johnson
- now the mayor of Sacra-
mento had 42 and 17 for
'Phoenix against Denver on
April 3, 1994.
"Even with a double-


overtime game, those are
video game numbers,"
Heat coach Erik Spoelstra
said, noting that he told
Wade the same after his
19-for-28 shooting effort
in 46 minutes.
And for the month,
James finished 139 for 217
from the floor 64.1 per-
cent, by far the best of his
career.
Kings coach Keith Smart
said before the game that
sometimes "great teams
get a little bored with the
regular season and they
need something to get
them going."
The Heat didn't seem to
be bored by the second
overtime.
After a late non-call that
James wanted, he simply
seemed mad.
James scored inside to
open the second extma
session, yelling "and one"
at referees as his way of
insisting he was fouled
as well. But after one sen-
sational sequence, the
game was pretty much
sealed.
Thornton had a chance
to give the Kings the lead
after a Heat turnover, but
his shot at the rim was
blocked by Wade, who
came down and set up
James for a 3-pointer a
five-point swing, in es-
sence, and the Heat had a
131-127 lead. James scored

Horoscope
PISCES (Feb. 20-March
20) There are always
those times when we turn
out to be the victor with
something in which we are
vulnerable. If you happen
to take a beating in the ear-
ly rounds today, keep this
in mind.
ARIES (March21-April 19)
- Be as flexible as possible
when trying to iron out the
snags in an agreement.
TAURUS (April 20-May
20) Stay out of office
politics as much as pos-
sible. Chances are nothing
will be resolved, but the
brouhaha it stirs up could
unsettle you.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20)
- Unless you match your
activity.with the clock, not
everything you want to ac-
complish will get done.
CANCER (June 21-July 22)
- Don't fight for what you
want if you know that do-
ing so will have detrimen-
tal side effects.
LEO (July .23-Aug. 22)
- Even though Lady Luck
is willing to help you out,
you might not notice her
contribution until late. in
the game.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
- When it comes to your
financial affairs, be both
careful and prudent by
thinking first and acting
second.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23)
- In negotiating a mat-
ter of importance, don't
be too hasty and accept
what is first offered. If you
try again, you should be
able to improve your
position.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov.
22) Something that you
work really hard on might
not turn out as well as you
expected.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-
Dec. 21) Try to be tol-
erant and forgiving in in-
volvements with both your
family and friends.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan.
19) Although it might
not be easy, a critical ob-
jective can be achieved.
When Lady Luck sees that
you are doing everything
you can, she will lend a
helping hand.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb.
19) -You'll have good luck
in fulfilling your expecta-
tions and hopes, but not
necessarily in the way you
expected.


Annie's .Mailbox


Dear Annie: My daughter is a drug addict
who is in and out of jail. Over the past 14
years, we have taken custody of her four
children. Two of the kids are great. How-
ever, the other two are the problem.
The oldest girl just turned 18 and
moved out. This kid made our lives mis-
erable. She saw counselors multiple times
and began cutting herself, and we finally
had to have her committed to a hospi-
tal. We did whatever we thought would
work, but nothing did. She quit school
and now lives with any friend who will
take her in.
Now, one of the other girls is 13 and
doing the same thing. It's as if they lose
their minds once they hit middle school.
Her grades are down, she is getting into
trouble at school, she cuts classes and has
briefly run away twice.
The other two kids are very involved
with school and church and are as good
as they can be. But, Annie, we don't want
to handle the 13-year-old anymore. All of
the counseling, the discipline, the prob-


Bridge
At the bridge table, sometimes it pays to take time
to smell the high-card points, which by any other
name would be as important.
How does that apply in today's deal? South is in
four spades. West leads the heart 10 to declarer's ace.
How should South continue?
West applied the Law of Total Tricks for his jump to
four hearts. In a competitive auction (or when you
are confident your side does not have the high-card
values for game), bid as high as your side's combined
number of trumps. West knew about a 10-card fit, so
jumped to the 10-trick level.
South saw four potential losers: one spade, two di-
amonds and one club. It looked as though he needed
the spade finesse to work. But since there were only
17 high-card points missing, declarer took time to
learn who held the club ace. At trick two, he led his
club king.
West won with his ace and shifted to the diamond
nine, but now South won with his ace and led the
spade queentempting West to cover if he unexpect-
edly had the king. However, after West played low,
declarer called for dummy's ace to drop East's king.
If East had not held the spade king, he would have
opened with only 10 high-card points, which was
highly unlikely.
When the opponents have been bidding, always
check the high-card points when the dummy comes
down. It will make it easier to place the missing key
cards.


lems, it's too much. My stomach is in
knots trying to.decide what to do. I am so
tired of kids who think they know every-
thing but are dumber than dirt, and all of
the drama they command.
My friends tell me to turn her over to
foster care, but no one else is going to
worry enough about her. My husband has
had two heart surgeries in the past year,
and my blood pressure is way too high,
even though I take medication. Should I
put her in foster care?
HELPLESS, TIRED GRANNY

Dear Helpless: You sound like a caring,
loving grandmother, but you are obvi-
ously overwhelmed by this difficult situa-
tion. You are not alone. Please contact the
AARP Foundation GrandCare Support
Locator at giclocalsupport.org for a list of
available agencies and organizations in
your area that help grandparents raising
grandchildren. Some of them offer respite
care, and it sounds like you could use that
kind of assistance.

Baseball


Medlen goes fromjack-of-all-trades to Braves ace


The Associated Press

KISSIMMEE- Kris
Medlen is not exactly
imposing listed at 5-
foot-10, and that's being
generous. He munches on
peanut butter-and-honey
sandwiches before every
start. He never stops fidg-
eting, whether it's bounc-
ing around the clubhouse
before a game or just chat-
ting up a couple of play-
ers 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 Atlanta 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.
But the Braves appear to
be setting things up for the
right-hander to be their
opening-day starter an
honor he certainly earned
with the way he pitched in
2011.
After starting the season
in the bullpen, Medlen
moved into the rotation
and was basically unbeat-
able. He went 10-1 with a
1.57 ERA, a major reason
the Braves earned a wild-
card playoff spot.
"I really don't care about
that too much, the title of
ace," the 27-year-old said.
"Ace is being a leader. It's a


THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
Atlanta Braves pitcher Kris Medlen throws during the first
inning of spring training game against the Miami Marlins on
Monday.


veteran thing. It's not just
something you hand off
to somebody. I thought I
had a good six months last
year. My two months in
the rotation were great to
me. I'm just kind of trying
to build off that this year.
Whether people think I'm
an ace or a number one
pitcher, whatever."
Still, being an ace in At-
lanta carries some gravitas.
The franchise was known
largely for its' starting
pitching during a run of
14 straight division titles,
the place where masterful
hurlers such as Greg Mad-
dux, Tom Glavine and John
Smoltz did their best work.
Now along comes


Medlen, who just a year
ago was seen as a handy
guy to have around but not
exactly the centerpiece of
the pitching staff.
He was used to filling
whatever role the Braves
needed, whether it was
spot starter- or long re-
liever. But once the Braves
committed to sending him
out every fifth day, Medlen
became perhaps the most
dominant pitcher in the
game.
'As a player, you never
want to be just average,
just skate along, just be
OK," he said. "You want
to be the best you can be,
whether that's the next
Hall of Famer or whatever.


I just .don't want to be the
next flop. I don't want to
be the next guy who has a
couple of good years and
he's out."
There are still plenty of
skeptics who wonder if
Medlen can come close
to matching the way he
pitched during those fi-
nal two months, when he
Made a dozen starts, went
9-0 with a 0.97 ERA, and
threw a couple of com-
plete games, including a
shutout.
"Sure, there are people
who still question me,"
Medlen said with a shrug.
"That's no skin off my
back. I'm just going to keep
doing the same things I've
been doing. I'm going to
keep playing the same way
I've been playing, just be-
ing aggressive and confi-
dent in my abilities and my
ability to get guys out."
The Braves have no
doubts about Medlen's
ability to lead the pitching
staff.
"He doesn't have that big
power arm and he's not
6-foot-4," manager Fredi
Gonzalez said. "But that's
OK. We'll take him. There's
a lot of guys in the Hall of
Fame smaller than him
who could pitch. We'll take
him."
Gerald Laird, who signed
with the Braves in the off-
season and will be catch-
ing Medlen early on while
Brian McCann recovers
from shoulder surgery, has
already been impressed


Daytona

Injured NASCAR fans explore legal options


with he's seen in the early
days of spring training.
"He's one of those guys
who's fun to catch," Laird
said. "He hits his spots. He
can throw multiple pitch-
es for strikes at any time.
I'm just looking forward
to catching him. I caught
him a couple of times in
(workouts), and I don't
even think I had to move
my glove."
Medlen has been com-
pared to Maddux, another
less-than-imposing physi-
cal specimen who had no
equal when it came to put-
ting the ball exactly where
he wanted.
"Kris can get it'up to 92
or 93 (mph), but he also
commands the ball," Laird
said. "If you can command
multiple pitches, you're
going to pitch a long time


in this game and get a lot
of outs."
Medlen knows it's far too
early to be mentioned in
the same class as Maddux,
who won more than 300
games and likely will be a
first-ballot Hall of Famer

ORLANDO The at-
torney for three NASCAR
fans injured last weekend
during a race the day be-
fore the Daytona 500 says
they are exploring a pos-
sible lawsuit, but some
experts say they could face
tough obstacles in winning
damages.
Matt Morgan, the Or-
lando-based lawyer for
the fans, said at a news
conference Tuesday than
any suit would focus on
the safety fence used along
the track at Daytona In-
ternational Speedway. He
said he hopes to reach a
settlement with NASCAR
to avoid a lawsuit.
More than 30 people
were injured last Satur-
day after a horrific wreck
in a second-tier NASCAR
series race sent chunks of
debris, including a heavy
tire, into the stands. Mor-
gan declined to provide
the identities of his clients,
but said two of them were
seated directly in front of
the crash and sustained
injuries ranging from a
fractured fibula -to ab-
dominal swelling. All have
been released from the
hospital.
Some experts say there

could be grounds for a law-
suit, and that courts have
looked past liability waiv-
ers written on the backs
of sporting event tickets.
Others maintain the tick-
et is a legal contract that
could be hard to overcome
in court.
"Ultimately, I believe
it would be gross negli-
gence," Morgan said. "We
all know that when you
go to a race you assume a
certain amount of risk. But
what people don't assume
is that a race car will come
flying into the stands...


That's why they make the
fences."
Asked to comment on
the fans' retention of a
law firm, NASCAR spokes-
man David Higdon wrote
in a statement, "We are
unaware of any lawsuits
filed."
Daytona International
Speedway is owned by
International Speedway
Corp., a NASCAR sister
company. Spokesman An-
drew Booth said, "As per
company policy, we do
not comment on pending
litigation."


Donnalynn Darling, a
New York-based attorney
who has been practicing
personal injury law for 30
years, said there is a theory
that a spectator who buys
tickets to a sporting event
assumes the risk of objects
coming out of the field of
play, such as a foul ball at
a baseball game.
But she said there is also
a foreseeable risk question
that promoters of events
also accept.
"Did the sporting event
promoter take action to
prevent that specific risk?"
Darling asked. "In terms of
this fence...it was put up to
prevent people from being
hurt. You have people who
were not only injured by
falling debris, but by the
failure of the fence."
Others say such re-
strictive clauses on the
back of tickets are gener-
ally disfavored by Florida
courts.
"If it's just something
written on the back of the
ticket and not called to the
attention of the person
purchasing, there's reason
to believe many courts
in Florida won't hold that
they consented efficiently,"
said University of Florida
emeritus law professor Jo-
seph Little.
