Crews makes case against closing prisons

Florida Department of Corrections Secretary Mike Crews
answers questions from the crowd during the Jackson County
Chamber of Commerce's First Friday Power Breakfast.
BY DEBORAH BUCKHALTER
Department of Corrections Sec-
retary Mike Crews was the key-
note speaker at the Jackson County
Chamber of Commerce First Friday
Crews grew up here, the son of
Christine and Daun Crews, a.former
Jackson County. Clerk of Court. After
24 years with the Florida Depart-
ment of Law Enforcement, Crews
switched over to DOC and in 2011

mand there before being appointed
to the top position in December of
He took over at a challenging time
with budgets being trimmed, in-
mate counts going up, and at a time
when the department was refocus-
ing energy on its mission to prepare
inmates for life on the outside upon
On Friday, he talked about some of
the tasks facing his department, and
about some of the things local resi-
dents can do to make its case against
closures of prisons in this area as the
state continues trimming budgets in
The state has closed six major in-
stitutions over the past few years,
and the shut-downs have had a dras-
tic effect on the economies of the
communities they'd served, Crews
acknowledged. Saying that he feels
DOC and the local community have
two strong advocates in the Florida
legislature Sen. Don Gaetz and
Rep. Marti Coley Crews said local
people should nevertheless make
sure that legislators continue to hear
from the residents about how impor-
tant the prisons and their jobs are to
He gave'an example of a commu-
nity's success in keeping its state
prison open despite DOC announc-
ing plans for its closure. Jefferson

Lois Jones knows water.
Having lived near rivers for
ears, the native Floridian felt
right at home when she bought the

"My mother says the reason I'm so
big on rivers, and have been all my
life, is because where I was born there
was no air conditioning, and she
could open the window of St. Vincent's
Hospital and there was the St. Johns
River," Jones said.
That love of- and respect for the
natural environment bf Florida is evi-
dent throughout Jones' two-bedroom

she did herself.

From staff reports
Another 15 Master Gardeners are now
available to help local residents with their
questions about spring planting, pests,
fertilizer, soil and all manner of other
inquiries as they plant and care for their
flowers, trees and vegetables.
The annual training session ended
with graduation Friday after an intense
60-hour course that took the three-man,
15-woman class students on field trips,
immersed them in book work and put
them on their knees digging in the dirt
for practical exercises toward becoming
experts in the field. Three of the 18 come
from, and will be assigned to, surround-
Jackson County had 28 Master Garden-
ers before the new class graduated to
bring the local compliment to 43.

about the Master Gardeners' upcom-
ing annual plant sale and garden fair, an
event to be held on Saturday, March 23. It
will be held at the Jackson County Exten-
sion Office, and runs from 7 a.m. until 2

crafts vendors who wish to take advan-
tage of the fact that they'll have a ready
crowd of potential buyers and patrons to

the field. She can be reached at 209-5942
or at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Always be prepared to face adversity
A s children we were taught
that no matter how many
ough obstacles we would
face in life, there were always oth-
ers who were doing worse than we
were. As adults, those early lessons
in life have been shown to be true.
Recently, I had an opportunity
to spend time around those who
were ill or had been involved in
accidents that had literally changed
their lives. During this time I was
able to observe how people handle
adversity in different ways.
There were those who appeared
to be upbeat and encouraged
despite their condition. Others
seemed depressed and discour-
aged about their situation. It was a
pleasant surprise to see that some
of those in the worst condition ap-
peared to be the most upbeat.
One of the things that caught
my attention was that those who
had visits from their families and
friends seemed to be more content
- despite their condition than
those who didn't have visitors.
After noticing the effect visits
were having on many
of the patients or
clients at the venue I
was visiting, I became
more convinced than
ever of the impor-
Thomas tance of family and
Vincent friends during tough
I rhil'ltn times.
It has been empha-
sized more than ever by physicians
and experts that upbeat feelings,
faith and belief can be major fac-
tors in the healing process. While
looking around the facility, I no-
ticed there were no outward signs
connected to any kind of spiritual-
ity. Possibly, religious emphasis is
purposely avoided at some fa-
cilities, because there are so many

something or someone to lean on
during our times of despair or trag-
edy. It was refreshing to hear some
of the patients or clients expressing
their appreciation for God's grace
and protection despite their condi-

still be among the living.
It's very good for individuals to
carry their beliefs and faiths in their
minds and hearts wherever they
may be. Life is uncertain. We can
be carrying out our daily routines
when sickness or an accident can
change our lives.
That's why it's so important to
have a mental outlook on life that
can carry us through the good
or bad, happy or sad. When we
are prepared mentally, physically
and spiritually we have a stronger
chance for survival when unfore-
seen circumstances take place in
an unpredictable world.

GIFTING THE KIDS TAX-FREE
Zillionaires may gift their children to lessen estate taxes
in the future; they pay gift taxes now on the assumption
that the assets transferred will appreciate before they
die. Most of us, though, give funds to our kids to help
them get something important a large-enough down
payment for a house, perhaps.
Starting this year, you can give a gift of $14,000 to your
children or any other individuals free of gift tax. It
doesn't even have to be reported. That's a $1,000 more
than last year. And married couples can give double the
Does that mean you can't give the kid a present later
this year for his birthday or a laptop when he goes off
to college? Not to worry. The Internal Revenue Service
is not likely to track your casual spending though it
might note a gift of stock or a large check. If an estate
is audited, the IRS may request bank and brokerage
accounts of the decedent for three years before death.
Want to spread the wealth? We'll show you how you can
benefit the family tax-free. See us at

4-H Club members learn the art of making paper
Special to the Floridan
The Explorers 4-H Club mem-
bers met on Feb. 21 for their
regular monthly meeting to "ex-
plore" another topic of interest
together. This month's meeting
was on the art of paper making.
Parent volunteer Tamara Tan-
ner was the instructor for the
well-attended meeting. She pro-
ceeded with her enthusiastic
and informative presentation on
the art of paper making. She had
previously asked club members
to bring old newspapers to this
meeting, already torn into strips,
in order to save time.
Tanner informed the club
members of the various stations
set up for completing the steps
required in making paper. Sev-
eral parent volunteers manned
the various stations, includ-
ing Tammy McKinnie, Takiyah
Smith, Diana Edwards, Tammy
Melvin and several other parents
who helped with the fun and
Tanner explained the basic
steps to creating functional and
artistic paper from old newspa-
pers, cotton, potpourri and oth-
er recyclable items. The news-
paper strips furnished by club
members were soaked briefly in
square plastic containers filled
with water. The first process was
to turn the wet recyclable paper
into pulp, which is a thick, lumpy
and slightly watery substance.
At the starting station, a blend-
er was filled with warm water
and shredded pieces of news-
paper until it was half full. The
blender was run on the slow
setting and .increased in speed
until a smooth and well-blended
pulp was formed. This pulp was
added to another square plastic
container also filled with water.
A square, wooden mold already
positioned in the water, with one
screened side and one open side,
was swirled around in the water
until the fibers of the pulp were
evenly distributed on the screen.
The mold was lifted straight.up
out of the water, and the new-
ly-made paper was dried, first
with sponges and then with an
iron on low heat setting at the

Edwards calls the meeting to order.

dry enough, club members pro-
ceeded to the finishing station
to decorate their paper with
paint, glitter, ribbons, stick-
ers and more. To conclude the
meeting, club member Abigail
Melvin shared her paintings and

Gov. Rick Scott doesn't mind playing favorites
when it comes to state universities. His budget
includes an extra $15 million for the University
of Florida to help it become one of the nation's top
He plans to give UF an extra $15 million for five
years. The money will be used to hire new faculty, The
promise of the special funding helped persuade UF
President Bernie Machen to change his mind about his
Scott's actions may endear him to Gators, but is he
going to make such promises when other university
presidents threaten to quit?
More importantly, where is his commitment to other
key state universities?
Last year, when the University of South Florida, a vital
economic engine, was finder attack by former Polk Sen.
JD Alexander, Scott lifted not a finger on USF's behalf.
Indeed, he signed the bill transforming USF's Poly-
technic branch campus in Lakeland into an indepen-
dent university solely to appease Alexander.
It was a scandalous abuse of limited higher educa-
tion tax dollars. There was absolutely no justification
for creating a new university other than a powerful
politician wanted it. Now Florida Polytechnic an
unaccredited school without a single student will be
looking for millions from the state.
And we can't forget how Machen stuck his nose in the
affair, coming to Alexander's assistance and saying he
could oversee Polytechnic's move to independence if
Despite Machen's questionable actions, UF, without
question, deserves strong state support,
It is the oldest and most prestigious state university
and generates the most research dollars $740 million
It performs well on graduation rates and other
benchmarks, though it is unfair to compare such
numbers to an urban commuter university such as USF
where many students work full time and take longer to
UF was the preeminent state university long before
Machen arrived nineyears ago, and it faces no greater
challenges than our other major research universities,
which also are essential to the state's prosperity.
So far, most of the fuss about Scott's partiality to UF
is coming from boosters at. Florida State University, its
But USF has equal cause to be upset. With 47,000
Students, it has a larger student body than FSU, and it is
second only to UF in research dollars. In 2010-11, USF
generated $401 million in research dollars. FSU spent
$230 million. USF's research funds increased 19 percent
over four years, more than the other major universities.
SLike UF and FSU, USF is striving to become an elite
University and has made remarkable progress con-
sider the accomplishments of its medical school.
And unlike UF or FSU, in recent years Tampa's uni-
Sversity has had to continually fight being sabotaged

Working at home can mean longer hours
' ahoo chief executive Marissa
Mayer has decreed that work-
eys must start showing up at
Uh, oh. What if her employees get
less work done not more?
Contrary to what many employers
think, telecommuters actually work
more overtime than their office-
bound colleagues, Mary C. Noonan
of the University of Iowa and Jen-
nifer L. Glass of the University of
Texas at Austin reported last June in
Monthly Labor Review.
In their article, titled "The hard
truth about telecommuting," the
sociologists say people who work
regularly, but not exclusively, at
home work between five and seven
hours more per week than those in
Noonan and Glass studied
telecommuting trends of nearly
67,000 workers from the mid-1990s
through the mid-2000s and found
that telecommuters were far less
likely to work a regular schedule and
more likely to work more than 40
hours a week
Fans laud telecommuting for
everything from reducing traffic
congestion and air pollution to
boosting productivity and promot-
ing work-life balance. Employees
in cubicles dream of padding down
the hall in their slippers to sit at
their computers and having more
time for children and other rela-
tives. But the study suggests a dark
side to telecommuting: It may allow
employers to increase or intensify
work demands among salaried
Mayer stunned not only
Yahoo employees but the 21st-
Century workplace when her hu-
man resources chief sent an internal
memo telling employees "We need
to be one Yahoo! and that starts with
physically being together": Angry
employees leaked the memo to Kara
Swisher at All Things D, a site that
covers the digital world.
The memo raises an intriguing
point. What are we missing with
our reliance on email and texting?
"Some of the best decisions and
insights come from hallway and
cafeteria discussions, meeting new
people, and impromptu team meet-
ings," the memo said.
The ironywas delicious, an
Internet search company insisting
that people chat face to face. How
quaint. What's next typewriters
and carbon paper?
Mayer, who was hired to breathe
life into Yahoo, became its chief
executive at 37 while pregnant with
her first child. Working women
hoped that she, of all people, would
be sympathetic to the needs of other
working moms. She reportedly
lavished free food and iPhones on
Yahoo employees. When that didn't
turn the company around, she
reined in the troops and reaped
criticism from all sides.
Even fellow CEOs questioned
her judgment. Richard Branson,
founder ofVirgin, blogged about
trust. "To successfully work with
other people, you have to trust each
other. A big part of this is trustilig
people to get their work done wher-
ever they are, without supervision,"
No one would argue with the value
of trust in the workplace, but what
happens when the trust is abused?
The New York Times reported that
some Yahoo employees used their
working time at home to start their.
own businesses. *
Several studies have found that
telecommuting improves produc-
tivity. To spark innovation, though,
research suggests interaction is key.
Yahoo joins a few other large corpo-
rations that have upset workers by
requiring them to show up.
The uproar strikes many as rich
people's problems. Most Ameri-
cans juggle jobs and family without
the luxury of being able to work at
White, college-educated managers
and professionals are far more likely
to telecommute than is the popula-
tion as a whole. Telecommuters are
less likely to be black and Hispanic.
Noonan and Glass also found that
while many companies say they
have flexible workplace policies, the
rate of telecommuting has stayed
at about 17 percent through the
Yahoo intends to be "the absolute
best place to work," the memo said.
Mayer may yet discover that more
work gets done at home than in the
hallway and cafeteria.

Who is Allen Cox and what can he teach us?
On Feb. 11, with the ut-
terance of three words,
"Guilty, Your Honor," Jim
Greer prematurely ended an ugly,
and convoluted chapter in the Re-
publican Party of Florida's history.
The disgraced former party chair
also dashed the hopes of many
who wanted to see the fireworks
of a full-blown trial and account-
ability for all who participated in
illegal or unethical behavior.
The story was years in the mak-
ing. It began in 2006, when Greer,
handpicked by then Gov.-elect
Charlie Crist and backed by lead-
ers in the Florida Legislature, just
barely received enough votes to
become the Republican Party of
Florida's chair. He was re-elected
two years later with only 75 per-
cent of the vote, even though he
was not officially challenged.
While his arrogant behavior and,
big-spending ways ruffled a lot of
feathers, he continued to enjoy the
support from those in the high-
est echelons of state government
- the governor, attorney general,
and legislative leaders.
Those in the grassroots of
Florida's Republican Party started
to express grave concerns about
fiscal mismanagement, credit card
scandals, and the financial health
of the party. But the elected elite,
who enjoyed unfettered access
to party resources, circled the
wagons by sending a not-so-subtle
message to dissenters to cease and
Some of the grassroots party
members caved to the influence of
these powerful forces. Others, who
took their fiduciary responsibilities
seriously, didn't believe that keep-
ing Greer in charge and allowing
the questionable financial prac-
tices to continue were in the best
interest of the party.
Enter Allen Cox. Cox, who then
served as vice chairman of the
party, was the man brave enough
to stand up against the power
elite to expose the misuse of party
with a few others,
not only repeat-
edly called for a full
financial audit, a
request rebuffed by
the attorney general
and legislative lead-
ers. He also enlisted
50 Republican Party
of Florida members
- state committee
men and women and county party
chairs to sign a written request
for a special meeting of the party's
state committee to rescind the
January 2009 election of Chairman
Greer. The request outlined four
charges, including financial mis-
management, violation of party
rules, and violation of two articles
of the Republican Party of Florida's
Greer continued to be protected
by those in position to force a full
accounting. Was their intention to
protect the party, as they claimed,
or to protect their shared secrets
with a chairman who was losing
the support of his organization?
Cox reached out to me and sev-
eral supportive elected officials to
back up his call for cleaning up the
party. A few of us joined in to pub-
licly call for a full and open audit,
to no avail. Party leaders support-
ed a less transparent accounting,
while expressing their confidence
in the embattled chairman.
Clearly Cox is a good man who
didn't stand by and do nothing.
His reward, however, was to be os-
tracized by his own political party.
What a shame!
Cox is an unsung hero. He
epitomizes what is right within the
party. He called out bad behavior
and had grassroots support in do-
ing so. And instead of good behav-
ior being rewarded, unfortunately
the opposite occurred.
Instead of the open process
requested, clandestine agree-
ments were signed, Greer resigned
and the powers that be installed
a sitting state senator to serve as
chair, someone who was part of
the secret contract. The result was
more top-down command, little
accountability, and business as
Imagine what the past three
years and the last election cycle
could have been like for the
Republican Party of Florida if
they had heeded Cox's call for
coming clean and reforming the
party. Instead, the party suffered
through a long period of rumor,
innuendo and finger pointing that
led up to the much anticipated
trial that-ended abruptly last week
with Greer's guilty plea, leaving a
plethora of unanswered questions.
The lone casualty- Greer
- became the fall guy for all the
bad behavior. His supporting cast
walked away relatively unscathed.
While it's hard to feel sorry for
Greer, it's harder to believe that
justice was served or that lessons
Cox recently said, in an article in
The Miami Herald, that he hoped
Greer's case would serve as a cata-
lyst to end the tradition of legisla-
tors using party funds to skirt state
law. He suggested eliminating the
loophole that allows legislative
leaders to raise money and park
it at the party-and have near total
discretion in how it is spent.
This year the Florida Legislature
is bringing forth ethics reform and
campaign finance reform legisla-
tion. Yet not included in either bill
is any reform'requiring political
parties to disclose how they collect
or spend political contributions.
Cox was one of the bravest and
most ethical among the Republi-
can Party of Florida in 2009 and he
was cast aside. The-powers that be
didn't listen to him then. Will they
be smart enough to listen now?

can state senator from Lakeland after 16 years

Sinkholes: Facts and answers to common questions
Special to the Floridan
From the Florida Department
of Environmental Protection's
Florida Geological Survey, infor-
mation about the nature of sink-
holes in Florida and the proper
protocol to use if you encounter
a sinkhole in an urban area.
Facts about sinkholes
The entire state of Florida sits
on top of several thousand feet of
limestone, a rock that can form
with natural void spaces called
porosity. In limestone,. where
the void spaces are connected,
the rock is permeable. Porous
and permeable limestone makes
great aquifers and provides mil-
lions of gallons of fresh drinking
water for residents and agricul-
ture. The most significant fac-
tor in the development of sink-
holes is the dissolution of the
limestone underlying Florida by
naturally acidic groundwater.
Sinkholes are a natural and
common feature of Florida's
landscape. They are only one
of many kinds of karst land-
forms, which include depres-
sions, caves (both air and water
filled), disappearing streams,
springs and underground aqui-
fer systems, all of which occur in
Florida. Thousands of naturally
occurring sinkholes can be seen
throughout the state of Florida
including many that connect
underground to springs, rivers
Sinkholes form in karst ter-
rain from the collapse of surface

sediments into underground
voids. In Florida, one may see so-
lution sinkholes, cover-subsid-
ence sinkholes or cover-collapse
sinkholes. The first two types
will show very little topographi-
cal disturbance, to the naked eye,.
while the third is the type that
shows an abrupt change in to-
pography and is most associated
with the thought of sinkholes.
Questions about sinkholes
in urban and suburban
My yard is settling. Do I have a
sinkhole? Maybe. But a number
of other factors can cause holes,
depressions or subsidence of the
ground surface. Expansive clay
layers in the earth may shrink
upon drying, buried organic ma-
terial, poorly-compacted soil af-
ter excavation work, buried trash
or logs and broken pipes all may
cause depressions fo form at the
ground surface. These settling
events, when not verified as true
sinkholes by professionals, are
collectively called "subsidence
incidents." If the settling is af-
fecting a dwelling, further test-
ing by a licensed engineer with
a licensed geologist on staff or a
licensed geology firm may be in
order. Property insurance may
pay for testing, but in many cases
insurance may not cover damage
from settling due to causes other
)) A sinkhole opened in my neigh-
borhood. Should I be concerned?
Although sinkholes in Florida
sometimes occur in sets, most
are isolated events. The 'bedrock
underlying the state is honey-
combed with cavities of.varying
size, most of which will not col-
lapse in our lifetimes. A quick
inspection of your property for
any sinking or soft areas might
be prudent. Unless the sinkhole

Is there a safe area of Florida
where there is no chance of sink-
holes? Technically, no. Since the
entire state is underlain by car-
bonate rocks, sinkholes could
theoretically form anywhere.
However, there are definite re-
gions where sinkhole risk is
considerably higher. In general,
areas of the state where lime-
stone is close to surface, or areas
with deeper limestone but with a '
conducive configuration of wa-
ter table elevation, stratigraphy,
and aquifer characteristics have
increased sinkhole activity.
In an effort to assist the state,
residents are encouraged to re-
port sinkhole information by
filling out a subsidence incident
report form on the Department's
website and submit the complet-
ed copy to the FGS. This website
also contains information on
sinkholes and how they form.
To access the form, go to

According to Farris, the
new equipment uses more
than the old. For instance,
ballot results are stored on
a jump drive rather than
on old-style memory cards
like those installed in the
M100s. The screen that
voters would see on the
DS 200 is also much larger
than the one available on
the M100, she pointed out.
Overall, the main
problem is that the old
machines are reaching
the end of their useful life
span; election officials
said. They've had to re-
place the motherboard in
one unit and batteries and
scanner bars in others.
Those failing parts were
discovered in the course
of testing the equipment
prior to various elections.
Farris said it's time to
replace them all.

For citrus crop, it's been
a tough year
ST. PETERSBURG Florida's citrus
crop has suffered huge losses this year,
with fruit falling from trees and the
overall forecast declining about 10 per-
cent, but the problems shouldn't trans-
late to a price increase at the breakfast
Experts and growers say warm, dry
weather; too much fruit on each tree;
and citrus greening disease are the likely
culprits. Some say this is the year that
greening which is caused by a fast-
spreading bacteria and is also known
as HLB finally translates into crop
losses. Greening is spread by insects,
and there is no cure. It leaves fruit sour
and unusable, and eventually kills the
"I don't think there's any doubt that
we're beginning to see the effects of ,
citrus greening on the industry," said
Adam Putnam, Florida's agriculture
commissioner. "This is a situation
where the state's signature agricultural
commodity faces an existential threat."
Most of Florida's biggest crop, Valencia
oranges, is used for juice, and because
of a surplus from last year, consumer
prices are not expected to increase this
year. But they could in the future.
At the beginning of the season last
October, the U.S. Department of Agri-
culture predicted that the state's total
citrus crop would yield 154 million
boxes of fruit. But that forecast has been
downgraded to 141 million boxes. A box
of oranges, temples or tangelos is 90
pounds, grapefruit boxes are 85 pounds,
and tangerines are 95 pounds.
'The USDA has reduced the estimate
three times in one season," Putnam
said. "I'm very concerned."

JACKSON COUNTY FLORIDAN www.jcfloridan.com
Dear Annie: My daughter just gave birth
to our first grandson. The problem is, she
and her husband plan to take the baby to
his parents' house for babysitting, even
though I offered. We both live nearby.
I'd love to watch him at least one or two
days a week.
I find my son-in-law to be arrogant and
rather disrespectful. I get the impres-
sion that he is encouraging our daughter
to have a negative attitude toward us.
Before they were married, we were close
to her, but now there is a huge rift. I am
hurt by her actions. They are stealing my
joy of having a grandchild. I am lucky if
I get to see the baby twice a week for an
hour at a time. I have offered to help with
dishes and laundry and occasionally,
they let me do those things. My husband
and I are generous and give them lots
of baby gear and food. It's as if I need to
bring a gift in order to hold my grandson.
Life has not been easy the past five
years. My only parent died, and my
siblings are squabbling over the estate,
creating an estrangement. Three years
ago, I was diagnosed with cancer. Due to
all of this stress, I have had two shingles
outbreaks in the past two months. I
always thought that when my only
daughter became a mother, we would
become closer, and she would be more
sympathetic toward me.
This hurts so much that I have trouble
sleeping. When I talk to my daughter
about more time with the baby, she says,
"We'll see," and that she needs to talk
to her husband about it. And nothing
changes. How do I fix this?
Dear Sad: We know many grandparents
would consider an hour twice a week
to be a blessing, so we caution you not
to be overly focused on the downside of
your relationship. There may be myriad
reasons why your daughter prefers her

not a fear of flying that is motivating her.

'Switched at Birth' goes silent
LOS ANGELES "Until hearing people walk
a day in our shoes, they will never understand,"
says a guidance counselor at a high school for deaf
students in "Switched at Birth."
Such insights are a staple of the ABC Family
drama, a TV rarity that puts deaf characters at the
center of the action. But Monday's episode takes it
a bold step further: Save for a few spoken words at
the beginning and the end, it is silent. The actors'
hands do the talking with American Sign Language,
even rapping together in one gleeful sequence.

He taught me, for
example, that professional
wrestling is fake, despite
my grandmother's telling
me otherwise. He also
told me little fishes should
be thrown back. If not,
at least hide them deep
under the ice where no
one can see them.
You see, my grandfa-
ther knew little fishes are
objects of ridicule. Other
fishermen will laugh and
make sport of you should
you catch 20 bluegills
that fit into a coffee can
with room to spare. His
advice has served me well
through the years.,
I don't know why, but

good one too."
"That little bitty thing?"
Gork replies. "Why it
doesn't weigh an ounce
over 120. You should've
thrown it back (giggle

Back at the cave, Gork
spends as much time be-
littling Mog for his "little"
fish as he does bragging
about his own trophy. The
whole clan laughs at Mog
while disrespectful cave-
children hoot, whistle, and
throw mastodon bones
at his head. Oola, mean-
while, makes eyes at Gork
like Scarlett did at Rhett.
Following my grandfa-
ther's teaching, I long ago
resolved never to be like
the hapless Mog. There
are too many Gorks in this
world who are ever ready
to point out your inad-
equacies to the world at
large. Life is too short and
who needs the heartache?
Never once, however, did
I ever think my own father
would Gork me.
It happened a few years
ago. I took Mom and Dad
to the mountains for a
day or two of sightseeing.
While there, I gave them a
guided tour of the pris-

kling water, moss-covered
rocks, and streamside veg-
etation, Dad was skeptical
when I recounted past

fish out of little bitty
creeks like this," he said.
"Yes we do," I replied.
"All the time."
"I don't believe it," he
"Wait right here," I said.
I'd anticipated Dad's
attitude and sneaked a
rod into the car before we
left home. I quickly broke
it out, tied on a Rooster
Tail spinner, and made
a cast into the dark pool
by which we were stand-
ing. Luck, Providence,
and the morning hunger
of a brightly colored wild
rainbow rewarded my
effort. My catch was about
8 inches long, not bad by
standards. I cast a smug
glance at Dad, released
the trout, and returned the

The Heat brought How-

doesn't appear to be one
made just on a whim.
"Juwan is a key part
of the championship

Riley said Saturday in a

to this team and can still
play this game at a high
level in some of our big-

Lady Indians split doubleheader
SUNDAY, MARCH 3,2013 5B
BY DUSTIN KENT
The Marianna Bulldogs
welcomed in their new-
est coach Carlan Martin
in as positive a fashion as
possible, notching a big
3-0 road district victory
over the Walton Braves
on Friday night thanks
largely to a dominant
from Hayden Hurst.
The junior left-hander
started on the mound
and went 6 1/3 innings,
giving up five hits and
two walks, and striking
out 10 batters before giv-
ing way to Adam Dewitt
in the seventh inning to
record the final two outs
and get the save.
Hurst got just enough
support from his of-
fense, which got a run in
the first when Reid Long
tripled and scored on a
passed ball, and got two
more in the fourth on a
solo home run by An-
drew Shouse and then a
failed pick-off attempt by
the Walton pitcher that
allowed Taylor Strauss to
score from second base.
Kody Bryan had the
only other hit for the
It wasn't much offense,
but Martin will certainly
take the win any way he
could get it, especially
in his first game back as
head coach of the Bull-
dogs since the 2007 sea-
son, as he took over after
the resignation of former
coach Steve Dewitt on
"It did feel good to get
back into the swing of
things. I'm tickled with
it," he said. "We played
real well. Walton had two
real good arms that came
out and threw well, but
the kids battled. Hayden
did a great job on the
mound. He battled and
his curveball had some
velocity on it. We look for
big things out of him."
