Man accused in child porn case


From staff reports
A local man is accused of possessing
and distributing child pornography.
With assistance from the Marianna
Police Department, the Florida De-
partment of Law Enforcement ar-
rested Sean Ahearn Connors at his


Southside Apartments residence
without incident Wednesday morn-
ing. Connors was being held in the
Jackson County Jail following his
arrest.
The case .against Connors arose
from FDLE's child pornography pre-
vention program, in which computer


monitoring revealed him as a suspect.
Last week, that agency contacted the
Marianna Police Department for as-
sistance in locating Connors, and to
coordinate efforts. The local agency
was asked to secure the scene as the
FDLE mobile crime lab officers col-
lected evidence from the apartment


on Wednesday.
Connors shares his dwelling with
several roommates. None of the other
residents is implicated in the case in
anyway, officials said.
The FDLE team confiscated

Friends of Bellamy

Bridge receives

$1,000 donation
BY DEBORAH BUCKHALTER
dbuckhalter@jcfloridan.com
im Hart's special connection to
Bellamy Bridge goes back to his
childhood growing up in Jack-
son County. He was baptized in the
Chipola River when he was 12 years
old, the old steel bridge towering
nearby.
The spot was also a favorite swim-
ming hole, somewhat secluded and
unknown by many.
As years passed, access to the bridge
closed up as a private entity bought
the land that led to it on one bank,


and the woods grew thicker around it
on the other.
So Hart watched with interest as
local historian and author Dale Cox
took an interest in the old bridge. He
wanted to open a public trail to the
old bridge, and worked with Jackson
County and state officials toward that
end. The Bellamy Bridge Heritage Trail
debuted around Halloween of last
year, with Cox providing the narrative
in a series of guided tours which were
fully booked with enthusiastic visitors.
He also established a group called
Friends of Bellamy Bridge, and set
up a web page devoted to the bridge
and the ghost stories that surround
it, the most famous so far being the
"Bride 6f Bellamy Bridge." But Cox has
researched other compelling ghost
stories associated with the bridge and
is bringing those into the light as well.
His work has created a whole new


potential niche tourism draw, opened
the old haunt back up to longtime
local residents and revealed it for the
first time to a younger set and future
generations.
Hart was impressed by the work Cox
had done, and also by the fact that the
author is donating all the proceeds
from a recent volume, The Ghost
of Bellamy Bridge, to the Friends of
Bellamy Bridge and the trail project,
which still needs some foot bridges
so that trail won't have zigzag around
some swampy places as it now does.
So when Cox was recently named
Citizen of the Year for all his efforts,
Jim Hart and wife Pat decided it was
time to pay him tribute by donating
to some cause that he cared about.
Cox chose the Friends organization
as his favored recipient. An oversized,

Capt, Bill Bryant of the Marianna Police
Department shows where a thief cut a 25-
foot piece of industrial-grade cable at the
WJAQ radio station, knocking the station off
the air sometime in the very early hours of
Wednesday morning.

Suspect in custody
BY DEBORAH BUCKHALTER
dbuckhalte(@jcfloridan.com
A thief has knocked a local radio sta-
tion off the air temporarily, but a sus-
pect in the case was in custody just a
few hours after he allegedly cut away
and stole a vital copper
cable that sent the WJAQ
FM/WTOT AM/FM sig-,
nal to its broadcast tower
off Edgewood Road in
Marianna.
Robert Wendell Scott
Scott Jr., 19, is charged with
grand theft, dealing in
stolen property and violation of felony
state probation in the case, according
to Capt. Bill Bryant of the Marianna Po-
lice Department. The theft, attendant
damage and labor costs to repair the
problem could be in excess of $20,000,
Bryant said.
MPD Chief Hayes Baggett said an alert
officer helped make the swift arrest. -
Employees at the station discovered
it was off the air when they arrived to
work around 7:30 a.m., and called po-
lice to report the theft of the cable. Just
a few minutes before, MPD officer Da-
vid Riley had been patrolling near 2962

'Black History 365' talent show rescheduled for Friday


BY DEBORAH BUCKHALTER
dbuckhalter@jcfloridan.com


The "Black History 365" talent
show at Grand Ridge School will be
held this Friday, rescheduled be-
cause of bad weather on its original
Feb. 22 date. It starts at 6 p.m. in the
school's old gym. Lynwood "Funny-
man" Williams will be the MC.
The event is co-sponsored by
the school and the local NAACP's
Jackson County Youth Council, an
NAACP division for young people
The cost of the show is $5 per ticket
for adults and young people 12 years
of age or older. It is free to younger
students.


The. proceeds from the show will
be split between the Youth Coun-
cil and the school, which will use
the money to fund its annual Black
History Month activities. The Youth
Council will spend its portion in part
to help send its active members to
the NAACP National Convention in
Orlando this year.
The talent show is one of many
fundraisers the young members of
the council has held over the years,
many of which are to help children
in need. For instance, most recently,
theyraised moneyto help buy snacks
for hungry students at Grand Ridge
School, afterschool participants at
the McClane Center in Marianna,


and youngsters at Golson Elemen-
tary School. The council's advisor is
Linda Long, a second-grade teacher
at Grand Ridge School who oversees
the Black History Month activities
there. She recently purchased the
snacks on behalf of the council and
they will soon distribute them to the
recipient entities.
Long said the Youth Council also
raised money to provide almost
200 book bags filled with supplies
for elementary, middle and high
school students around the county,
and distributed the materials near
the start of the school year at a

began to coordinate the
efforts of the co-ops. Since
then, thousands of young
people have experienced
this opportunity. For more

SBA: Disaster loans available


Special to the Floridan

The U.S. Small Business
Administration recently
announced that federal
economic injury disas-
ter loans are available to
small businesses, small
agricultural cooperatives,
small businesses engaged
in aquaculture and most
private nonprofit organi-
zations of all sizes located
in Florida as a result of the
drought that began on
Feb. 19.
The disaster declara-
tion includes the follow-
ing. counties: Alachua,
Baker, Bradford, Calhoun,
Clay, Columbia, Duval,
Gadsden, Gilchrist, Ham-
ilton, Jackson, Jefferson,

Madison, Nassau, Saint
Johns, Suwannee, Taylor,
Union and Wakulla in
Florida.
."When the Secretary of
Agriculture issues a di-
saster declaration to help
farmers recover from
damages and losses to
crops, the Small Business
Administration issues a
declaration to eligible en-
tities affected by the same
disaster," said Frank


East in Atlanta.
Under this declaration,
the SBAs Economic Injury
Disaster Loan program is
available to eligible farm-
related and nonfarm-re-
lated entities that suffered
financial losses as a direct
result of this disaster. With
the exception of aqua-
culture enterprises, SBA
cannot provide disaster

The loan amount can
be up to $2 million with
interest rates of 2.875 per-
cent for private nonprofit
organizations of all sizes
and 4 percent for small
businesses, with terms up
to 30 years. The SB4A de-
termines eligibility based
on the size of the appli-
cant, type of activity and
its financial resources.
Loan amounts and terms
are set by the SBA and are
based on each applicant's
financial condition.
These working capital
loails may be used to pay


fixed debts, payroll, ac-

occurred. However, the
loans are not intended
to replace lost sales or
profits.

Marianna police: Marijuana found in suspect's shoe


From staff reports

An exchange with local law en-
forcement got off on the wrong
foot for a Marianna man this
week.
The Marianna Police Depart-
ment reports that at approxi-
mately 8:30 a.m. Tuesday, March
5, officers conducted a traffic
stop involving a 2006 blue, four-
door Mazda that was displaying
an expired tag.
Court records indicate the stop
was made on the west side of


Marianna, at the BP gas station
on Lafayette Street.
MPD says the officers, while
speaking with the
vehicle driver and
passenger, could
smell an over-
whelming odor of
burnt marijuana
emitting from in-
'Cooper side the car. This
prompted officers
to conduct a probable cause
search of the vehicle.
After patting down the


passenger, identified as Addis
Tallafarell Cooper, 22, of 2822
Davie St. in Marianna, the officer
asked him to remove his shoes.
That's when the officer dis-
covered a plastic bag containing
baggies of marijuana prepack-
aged for sale.
MPD reports the marijuana's
'total packaged weight, record-
ed later at the station, was 23.2
grams.
In the Mazda, under the driv-
er's seat, police also found an
open box of sandwich bags they


think were used to package the
drugs.
Cooper was then arrested and
transported to the police station,
where a plastic bag containing
an additional 3.8 grams of mari-
juana was discovered in his jack-
et pocket. Following processing
at the station, the suspect was
taken to the Jackson County Cor-
rectional Facility to await his first
appearance in court.
But it wasn't over yet.
After Cooper was taken out of
his car, the investigating officer


says he conducted a search of
its back seat, where he "discov-
ered a pink digital scale which
Cooper denied ownership of."
According to the affidavit filed
with the court, the back seat had
been searched prior to Cooper
being placed in it at the arrest
location.
Cooper was charged with pos-
session of marijuana with in-
tent to sell within 1,000 feet of a
church, possession of drug para-
phernalia, and tampering with
evidence.

Man heard knocking,
but can't come in
On Wednesday, March 6,
officers with the Mari-
anna Police Department
| - responded
to a call in
reference
to someone
beating on
the com-
plainant's
Lopez front door
(in what she
believed to be an attempt
to break in) and peer-
ing into herliving room


window.
Upon arrival, officers
located Oscar Lopez still *
beating on the front door
and yelling for someone to
let him in.
Police say Lopez was
intoxicated and, when
asked, he could not say
who lived at the residence.
Lopez, 22, of Lafayette
Street in Marianna, was
, charged with loitering and
prowling, and disorderly
intoxication.
The subject was arrested
and transported to the
Jackson County Jail, where
he awaits his first appear-
ance in court.

Senate OKs ban on
testing while driving
TALLAHASSEE A Sen-
ate panel on Wednesday
unanimously approved
a bill imposing a state-


wide ban on texting while
driving, but the road to
becoming law is long for a
measure that has already
died the previous three
years.
Critics in the House
have repeatedly killed
it, calling it unnecessary
government intrusion into
people's lives.
The Senate Commu-
nications committee on
Wednesday voted 9-0 for
the bill (SB 52). The bill
outlaws texting by drivers
but exempts police and
other emergency vehicles.
The proposed law makes
texting subject to second-
ary enforcement. That
means police could cite
drivers for it only if they
had been pulled over for
another violation such as
speeding.
An initial violation
would lead to a $30 fine


and if texting resulted
in a crash the driver
would be assessed six
points. Points lead to in-
creased insurance rates.
"This epidemic has to
stop," said Sen. Nancy De-
tert, a Venice Republican
and the bill's sponsor.
Courtney Heidelberg,
a spokeswoman for the
Florida Department of
Highway Safety and Mo-
tor Vehicles, said recent
statistics on texting and
driving are not readily
available. Florida highway
safety records show, how-
ever, of the 171,538 Florida
crash reports filed dur-
ing the first 10 months of
2011,149 drivers in those
wrecks were known to be
texting.

ceremonial check was presented to
the organization Wednesday.
The Harts initially resisted reveal-
ing their identities, but Mr. Hart
said Wednesday that they decided
to do so in hopes that their dona-
tion might inspire giving among
friends, acquaintances and strang-
ers who also appreciate the new
trail, the work Cox has done, and
the new opportunity to show off
some of Jackson County's most
prized natural andhistoric resourc-
es. Hart said the gift was also in
tribute to Cox as a defender of Jack-
son County. Hart said he felt the
research Cox has done into some
controversial matters has helped
set the record straight, and that Cox
has been an outspoken-advocate of
his home county.
Hart said he believes the trail
will become a major attraction for
Jackson County, calling the trail a
serene spot for tourists and locals
who want to soak in nature at a
leisurely pace.

Jim Hart (right) puts his signature on the huge check brought by Jackson County
Parks and Recycling Director Chuck Hatcher as*Pat Hart (center) looks on.


"It's a special place in my mem-
ory," Hart said. "The Bridge was an
icon for a lot of people who grew
up in the 1940s and '50s. The river
there was a great swimming hole,
clear with a sandy bottom and a
large access area for parking. Young
people would use it as a launch,
also, for small fishing boats. Most
of the time, the water was deep
enough that you could jump off


the midpoint of the bridge. I never
did that, but I did swim down there
many times. My brother Darrell
and I were both baptized there, so
it holds a lot of personal meaning
to me and, I think, to a lot of other
people. Dale is to be commended,
and we're delighted to help in this
endeavor by giving in his name."
The trail receives no county
funding.

Hillcrest Drive, the sus-
pect's some-time dwelling.
Riley saw a piece of indus-
trial-grade cable lying in
an area near the mobile
home, positioned as if it
had perhaps fallen from a
vehicle. He made a mental
note, and remembered it,
when he was dispatched to
handle the theft call.at the
radio station a fewminutes
later.. When the station's
chief engineer showed him
an example of what had
been taken, Riley rounded
up some support and the
officers headed back to
where he'd seen the other
cable, which he suspected
was nearly identical to
what he'd just been shown
at the station.
Officers say they saw
Scott drop some cable into
the back of a truck after
they arrived at his dwelling,
and later found a smolder-
ing burn pit in the back
yard, alongwith some cop-
per that had been burned
clean. Police say the owner
of the truck was a neighbor

This close shot shows the inside of a copper cable similar to

lookout for this specialty item and report to law enforcement
authorities if someone brings any in for sale.


who had been summoned
there by Scott, who had al-
legedly asked him to take
and sell the scrap material
for him.
Scott was taken into
custody.without incident.
Neither the neighbor nor
any other individual stay-
ing at Scott's temporary
dwelling are implicated of
wrongdoing in the case.
With a suspect in custo-
dy, the WJAQ family is re-
lieved of that worry and is
now concentrating on get-
ting back in business. The
station primarily broad-
cast country and easy


listening music.
Because the cable must
be special-ordered, it nor-
mally takes at least a month
to arrive, said WJAQ Chief
Engineer Jeff Sallaway, but
because of the -generosity
of a competitor in town,
the station could conceiv-
ably be back up and run-
ning within a week or so.
Jimmy Adams, owner and
Chief Engineer of WTYS
AM (country) and WTYS
FM (southern gospel), is
loaning Sallaway much of
what he needs to get back
on the air. Sallaway said it's
not the first time Adams


has stepped in to help.
WJAQ has been victimized
almost a half-dozen times
over the past fewyears, and
Adams has always agreed
to assist. In one case, about
a decade ago, he came to
the station's aid before he
was even asked, deliver-
ing some much-needed
equipment unexpectedly.
Sallaway, despite his an-
ger at the thief, was still
able to find compassion
enough to be glad of one
circumstance that worked
in favor of the person who
stole from the station. The
station happened to be
running on low power at
the time of this theft, at
about 10 watts, because of
a power line complication,
and was only reaching
households in and right
around Marianna. Nor-
mally, it would be running
on 6,000 watts, enough to
extend its reach into all
of Jackson County. The
return to full power was
supposed to happen this
coming weekend. If it had
already been operating at
full power, Sallaway said,
the thief would have been
killed when he cut into the
cable.


The Marianna Police De-
partment is hoping that
area scrap metal dealers
take a good look at the
image of the cable taken
from the radio station so
that they'll be familiar
with it if any is brought
into their shops. Baggett
asks that they call police if
they encounter any of the


special-grade material.
According to Bryant,
there's some irony in the
situation; he said the sus-
pect denies that he took
this copper from the radio
station but that'he got it
somewhere else and was
trying to sell it to pay off
his probation fines in an-
other criminal case.

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
An Egyptian army officer stands guard between riot police and protesters (not seen) during
clashes near the state security building in Port Said, Egypt, on Wednesday.


Court suspends Egypt's


parliament election


The Associated Press

CAIRO -An Egyptian court onWednes-
day ordered the suspension of parlia-
mentary elections scheduled to begin in
April, opening a legal battle likely to delay
the vote and deepening the political crisis
between the Islamist president and his
opponents that has polarized the nation
for months.
The new confusion surrounding the
election underlined the paialy.is grip-
ping Egypt, between political deadlock,
infighting among state institutions, a fal-
tering economy and a wave of protests,
strikes and clashes against Morsi and his
Muslim Brotherhood that has spiraled for
months around the country
In the Suez Canal city of Port Said, scene
of heavy clashes between protesters and
police that have left six dead since Sun-
day, the violence entered a fourth day,
dragging in the military. Protesters hurled
stones at police firing tear gas, as army
troops struggled to keep the sides apart.
Morsi's Islamist supporters and some
in the public exhausted by the turmoil
have viewed the parliamentary elections
as a step toward bringing some stabil-
ity, accusing the opposition of stirring
up unrest to derail the voting. But the
mainly liberal and secular opposition
had called a boycott of the vote, say-
ing.Morsi must first find some political
consensus and ease the wave of popu-
lar anger:Whether or not the opposition
boycotts, the Islamists would likely win a
parliamentary majority.


The new court ruling is unlikely to de-
fuse the tension, bringing the dispute
into the judiciary, which has repeatedly
been used by the various sides in Egypt's
political battles.
The Cairo administrative court ruled
that the Islamist-dominated parliament
had improperly pushed through a law
organizing the elections without allow-
ing the Supreme Constitutional Court to
review it to ensure it conforms with the
constitution. The court ordered the law
referred to the constitutional court and
the election suspended in the meantime.
The court annulled a decree by Morsi
calling the election.
Morsi's opponents quickly pointed to
the ruling as further prdof of their accu-
sations that Morsi and his ruling Muslim
Brotherhood are mismanaging the coun-
try, trying to dominate power without
reaching consensus with others or abid-
ing by the law.
"The mess continues courtesy of epic
failure of governance," prominent oppo-
sition figure Mohamed ElBaradei said in

Bolshoi dancer confesses


to attack on ballet chief


The Associated Press

MOSCOW A Russian
ballet star who has danced
the roles of violent and
powerful historical figures
at the Bolshoi Theater has
confessed to organizing
the acid attack on the the-
ater's ballet chief, Moscow
police said Wednesday.
,A masked man threw
a jar of sulfuric acid in
the face of artistic direc-
tor Sergei Filin as he re-
turned home late on Jan.
17, severely burning his
eyes. The 42-year-old for-
mer dancer is undergoing
treatment in Germany.
Bolshoi soloist Pavel
Dmitrichenko, 29, con-
fessed to masterminding
the attack, and two other
men confessed to being
the perpetrator and the
driver of the getaway car,
police said in a statement.
All three were to appear in
court on Thursday, when
prosecutors were to move
for criminal charges to be
filed against them.
"I organized that attack
but not to the extent that
it occurred," a bleary-eyed
Dmitrichenko said in foot-
age released by Russian
police. Moscow police
said in a statement that
investigators believe that
Dmitrichenko harbored
"personal enmity" against
Filin.
The attack threw light
on a culture of deep in-
trigue and infighting at
the famed Moscow the-
ater. Within hours of the
attack, Bolshoi managers
were speculating that the
attack could have been
in retaliation for Filin's
selection of certain danc-
ers over others for prized
roles.
Dmitrichenko, who
joined the Bolshoi in
2002, has not suffered for
starring roles. Most re-
cently, he danced the title

role in "Ivan the Terrible,"
a ballet based on the life
of the ruthless 16th-cen-
tury czar who killed his
son in a rage. He also has
danced Spartacus in the
ballet of the same name.
Dmitrichenko's page on
the social networking
site VKontakte includes a
photograph of him as the
leader of the slave upris-
ing dancing with a dagger


in each hand.
Dmitrichenko's girl-
friend, who also is a Bol-
shoi soloist, is reported to
have had a troubled rela-
tionship with Filin and felt
she was unfairly denied
major parts.
Filin's lawyer and wife,
however, both cautioned
that the ballerina is un-
likely to have been the
only cause of the conflict.


U.N.: Syrian refugees top 1 million


The Associated Press

BEIRUT Syria's accelerating humani-
tarian crisis hit a grim milestone Wednes-
day: The number of U.N.-registered
refugees topped 1 million half of them
children described by an aid worker as
a "human river" of thousands spilling out
of the war-ravaged country every day.
Nearly million of Syria's 22 million peo-
ple have been driven from their homes by
the civil war. Of the displaced, 2 million
have sought cover in camps and make-
shift shelters across Syria, 1 million have
registered as refugees in neighboring Tur-
key, Jordan, Lebanon, Iraq and Egypt, and
several hundred thousand more fled the
country but haven't signed up with the
U.N. refugee agency.
The West has refrained from military
intervention in the two-year-old battle
to oust Syrian President Bashar Assad,
a conflict that has claimed more than
70,000 lives, and many Syrians hold the
international community responsible for


their misery.
"The refugee numbers swelled be-
cause the world community is sitting idly,
watching the tyrant Assad killing inno-
cent people," said Mohammed Ammari,
a 32-year-old refugee in the Zaatari camp
straddling Jordan's border with Syria.
"Shame, shame, shame. The world should
be ashamed."
Despite an overall deadlock on the
battlefield, the rebels have made recent
gains, especially in northern Syria. On
Wednesday, they completed their capture
of Raqqa, the first major city to fall com-
pletely into rebel hands, activists said.
But with no quick end to the conflict
in sight, the refugee problem is bound to
worsen, said Panos Moumtzis of the U.N.
refugee agency, UNHCR. The number of
uprooted Syrians is still lower than those
displaced in other conflicts, including Af-
ghlanistan, Iraq and the Balkans, but the
Syria crisis will likely be protracted, and
widespread devastation will make quick
repatriation unlikely.

It didn't come easy, but the Chipola
Lady Indians got a first round victory in
the FCSAA state tournament on Wednes-
day night at the Milton H. Johnson Health
Center, hanging on to top Florida State
College at Jacksonville, 62-55.
The Lady Indians averted disaster after
The Blue Wave nearly erased all of a 15-
point second half deficit to close the mar-
gin to two on two separate occasions in
the final four minutes.
Chipola led 55-40 with 8:46 to play, but
FSCJ stormed back with 13 straight points,
with a pair of free throws by Alexia Bell


cutting it to 55-53 with 3:46 remaining.
After Tierra Johnson missed two free
throws to tie, the Lady Indians got a big
driving bucket by Kristine Brance to push
the lead to four with 2:24 left, but a basket
by Bell got it right back to two at 57-55.
But a clutch three-pointer by Rayven
Brooks put Chipola back up five with
1:35 to play, and a pair of free throws by
Jasmine Crawford made it 62-55 with :31
left.
Brooks finished with nine points but
struggled to stay out of foul trouble all
night, picking up her third with four min-
utes left in .the first half and getting her

"He does a good job on the

said of Dauda.
Freshman guard Bernard

Lady Hornets win with another walk-off


BY DUSTIN KENT

For the second straight night, the Cot-
tondale Lady Hornets called upon some
seventh-inning magic to pull off a big
district victory, beating the Wewahitchka
Lady Gators 4-3 Tuesday night thanks to a
three-run rally in their final at-bat.
Cottondale (3-2.overall and in District
3-1A play) was coming off a 9-8 win over
Graceville on Monday night that included
a two-run rally in the seventh. I
The Lady Hornets found themselves fac-
ing an even bigger deficit Tuesday night,
trailing 3-1 through six innings. '
But in the seventh, Connor Melvin and
Haley Boggs startedthe inning'with hits,
and Morgan McGinty added an RBI single
to score Melvin to make it 3-2.
Consecutive strikeouts of Kayla Latham
and Laken Wamble got the Lady Hornets
to their last out, but Kourtnie Richardson
came through with a two-run triple to
score McGinty and Katie McBride to com-
plete another walk-off win for CHS.
"The girls are getting some confidence
about themselves," Lady Hornets coach
Mike Melvin said after the game. "I told
them before (the bottom of the seventh)


that this is the time you want to be in the
box. You've got to want to be in there for
that moment, and they came through.
"It's exciting right now. Everybody is
having fun. The kids are having fun, the
fans are having fun, and it's some exciting
games here lately."
Richardson finished 2-for-4 with two
RBI, while McGinty was 2-for-4 with an
RBI and Connor Melvin was 2-for-4.
Kelsie Obert pitched perhaps her best
game of the young season to get the win,
allowing just four hits and no walks or hit
batters while striking out 13 in seven in-
nings. Unfortunately for Obert, four errors
for the Lady Hornets cost the team two
runs, with defensive miscues continuing
to be the team's biggest.issue so far.
"If We keep hitting the ball and we can
cut down on errors, these games won't be
nearly as close," the coach said. "We keep
letting people in games because of errors,
so we've got to cut those out. We've just got
to get better defensively. We've got some
young girls who are making young mis-
takes, but we've just got to keep practicing
and get better."
Cottondale will next travel to Ponce de
Leon tonight before heading tq Graceville
on Friday for another district game.

20) Because you're
likely to be a visionary
with a purpose, your prob-
abilities for success are
excellent.
ARIES (March 21-April
19) -Although you'll
derive much satisfaction
from achieving an impres-
sive accomplishment,
striving for it will give you
the most pleasure. The fun
is in the chase.
TAURUS (April 20-May
20) Those with whom
you hang out, including
your family, will have an
effect on your attitude.
GEMINI (May21-June
20) Even if most of your
efforts are spent doing
things for others, when it
comes time to diwvvy up
the results, you'll share in
what they gained.
CANCER (June 21-July 22)
- If you have to make a
presentation, try to isolate
the key players, because
you'll do much better

of assistance to an associ-
ate if it's needed.

be therapeutic to break
awayfrom everyday rou-
tines and change the game
plan. If possible, seek out
involvements that are fun
and relaxing.
SAGITARIUS (Nov. 23-
Dec. 21) Substantial
achievements are possible
when you devote your
energies to matters that
could enhance your mate-
rial well-being.Go for the
gold.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan.

better than doing quality
work on one.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb.
19) In order to get what
you're entitled to, it might
be necessary for you to be
assertive.


Annie's Mailbox


Dear Annie: Money is a constant issue
in our house. I need my wife to quit her
part-time job at a superstore and find
one with a better salary. But every time I
bring it up, she gets angry and defensive
and says that I am calling her lazy. -
We have a total of $50 in savings. We
have a young son and I'd like to move
into a house. To accomplish this, we need
two full-time salaries. How do I bring this
up without making my wife angry?
-- GRAND RAPIDS, MICH.

Dear Grand Rapids: Instead of insisting
that your wife find a better-paying job,
try talking to her about why she wants to
stay where she is. She may love her job.
She may be afraid to look elsewhere. She
might want to stay home with the kids
and believe you should be the one to
get a different job. And of course, there
may be other issues of which you are
unaware. Tell her that you are worried
about your financial situation, and ask,
gently, why she is so reluctant to deal


Bridge
At the bridge table, don't make the play you
think is right; make the play after which either
your contract cannot fail or the opponent's
contract cannot make. In this deal, East is de-
fending against five diamonds. West leads the
heart queen, and South calls for dummy's five.
How might East hope to defeat the contract?
After South opened one diamond, West
made a two-heart weak jump overcall, show-. *
ing a good six-card suit and 6 to 10 high-card Y
points. East raised to four hearts, a contract
that would have made when both major-suit
finesses worked. However, South rebidfive
clubs, and North converted to five diamonds.
Since neither side was sure who could make
what, this was passed out.
The defenders need three tricks to defeat
five diamonds. East can see one in hearts.
His side cannot take a second heart, because
West's overcallguaranteed a six-card suit. Any
minor-suit tricks would come in the fullness of
time. That left spades to be considered. Who
should be attacking that suit, West or East?
Clearly East. His leading. spades through South
rated to be more profitable than West's leading
around to South.
So East should win the first trick with his
heart ace and shift to the spade queen. Here,
that works, netting three tricks for defense. -


with it. But keep in mind that while nice,
a house is not a requirement for raising
a family.

Dear Annie: I have to make a quick com-
ment in response to "Feeling the Void in
Indiana," who said men feel incomplete
without sex and will risk everything for it.
I acknowledge and appreciate where this
man is coming from. My husband also
"felt the void" and did risk everything to
fill it. Fortunately, we were able to work
through his affair and remain together.
My husband is now grateful that I stuck
by him and can care for him, and he is
less concerned about sex. If"Feeling" has
not yet had a frank conversation with his
wife about his needs and asked about
HER satisfaction,'he should. My husband
thought I knew what he needed and
wouldn't care that he was pursuing satis-
faction elsewhere. But he never asked me
whether I was happy. That cost us untold
pain that could have been avoided.

"They have a real bal-
anced attack," Blake said
of the Eagles. "They do a
great job of attacking the
rim, so we've got to match
their physicality. Defen-
sively, they're very tough
and aggressive in the half-
court, so we have to be
strong with the ball, set
good screens, make good
cuts and be able to finish
behind them.
"Obviously, -we want to
push it in transition, but
they do a good job of cut-
ting off your transition
offense and making you
score against their half-
court defense."
Dictating the tempo will
be a key factor in the game,
with the Indians looking to
speed up the Eagles and
make it more of an open
court game with a lot of
possessions, while Polk
State will be hoping to
make it more a slow, grind-
ing game to help neutralize
Chipola's athletes.
"I think it's going to come
down to two teams with dif-
ferent identities and who is
going to be more success-
ful imposing their identity
on the other team," Blake
said. "Obviously we're go-
ing to play to our strengths
and try to get it to be the
kind of game we want, and
they'll try to do the same."
The Indians ended the
regular season on a some-
what sour note after los-
ing two of their final three
games, including a 20-
point defeat to the Gulf
Coast State Commodores
in the season finale.
But after a week off to re-
group, Blake said that the
team is in a much better
place mentally and is ready
to make a deep run in the
state tournament.
"Our mindset has been
great. We've had really
good practices and I think
our guys are excited and
hungry," he said. "This is
what we've worked hard
all year for, and the guys
are excited to be able to
play at home. Our mindset
is to play our best basket-
ball, and that if we play as
hard as we can for 40 min-
utes, it's going to be tough
for another team to take a
game from us.
"I think the guys are re-
freshed (from the time
off). This is the time of year'
we've been working to get
to for so long. The season is
a long grind and you can't
take a night off in the Pan-
handle. It was good to get a
couple of days to step back
and appreciate the op-
portunity we have. I think
that rejuvenated the guys
and their hunger has come
with that."

In this Feb. 18 photo, Miami Marlins non-roster invitee infielder Chone Figgins runs the bases during spring training baseball in Jupiter, Fla. At 35, Figgins just
wants to get in the game.


Figgins trying to extend career with Marlins


The Associated Press

JUPITER Chone Figgins reaches into his
locker and pulls out a glove from the stack on
the shelf, eager to grab the chance to revive
his career with the Miami Marlins.
He smacks the leather of the second base-
man's mitt. He also has gloves to play third
base, shortstop and the outfield.
"They're all different sizes," Figgins says. "It
makes a huge difference."
His favorite position?
"On the field," he says. "Anywhere."
At 35, Figgins just wants to get in the game.
The 12-year veteran is a .277 career hitter with
337 stolen bases, but he has batted under .200
each of the past two seasons, and the Marlins
might represent his last opportunity to stay in
the big leagues.
He's off to a slow start in spring training,
going 0 for 9 in his first four games. But he's
confident he can still hit, and figures his ver-
satility afield coming off the bench makes
him especially valuable to a National League
team.
Until this year, he spent his entire career in
the American League.
"In the AL you're limited," he says. "They
don't pinch-hit much, and if they do, it's
usually somebody who might hit a homer."
Figgins never had much power, but in
his prime the switch-hitter contributed in
many other ways during eight seasons with


"When he was in Anaheim, he was one of the best players I've ever seen. He could run,
he could hit, he could play defense. He could play all over the place."
Mike Redmond,
on Chone Figgins


the Angels.
His production began to decline after he
signed a $36 million, four-year contract with
the Mariners before the 2010 season. He bat-
ted .188 in 81 games in 2011, then hit .181 in
66 games last year.
Playing part time made it tough to shake the
slump, he says.
"I'd go three weeks to a month not playing,
going from getting 700 at-bats every year," he
says. "It's tough. You sign a four-year deal, and
the second year of the deal you're sitting on
the bench. That's hard to swallow. But I stayed
positive as much as I could. This is where it
has taken me."
The Marlins are rebuilding after their latest
payroll purge, and their spring training club-
house is a mix of prospects and thirtysome-
thing veterans like Figgins trying to extend
their careers.
Left fielder Juan Pierre, 35, and third base-
man Placido Polanco, 37, are expected to
start, but Figgins will need a good spring just
to make the team. He signed a minor-league
contract with the Marlins after the Mariners
let him go in November.
"Obviously he had a couple of rough years,"


new Miami manager Mike Redmond says.
"We're hoping he comes in here, gets around
some younger players and rejuvenates
himself.
"When he was in Anaheim, he was one of
the best players I've ever seen. He could run,
he could hit, he could play defense. He could
play all over the place."
Figgins has played 630 games at third base,
274 at second, 253 in center field, 76 in left
field, 28 in right field and 27 at shortstop.
"I would go from short to third to outfield
to second in one game," he says. "It's fun. You
learn a lot moving to different positions. I got
to watch some of the best hitters and a lot of
different swings from different angles. And
you get to talk to a lot of players jumping from
position to position."
Redmond wants to give Figgins plenty of
playing time in the hopes the veteran can
shake his rust.
"Hopefully he gets it back," Redmond said.
"That could be a huge lift to this team. He's
got nothing to lose."
Neither do the Marlins. The Mariners still
owe Figgins $8 million this year, but for bud-
get-conscious Miami he's a potential bargain.

Necole Sterling scored 23 points and
Panhandle Conference Player of the
Year Tamara Taytor added 15 for the Gulf
Coast State Lady Commodores, who took
a 73-62 win over Santa Fe on Wednesday
in the opening round of the FCSAA state
tournament at the Milton H. Johnson
Health Center. :
With the win, the Lady Commodores
(25-4) advanced to Friday's semifinal
round to take on the St. Petersburg Lady
Titans, who won their opening round
game 55-41 over Hillsborough.
Gulf Coast State got out to the early
lead and took a 40-30 advantage into the
halftime break.
The Lady Saints played the Lady Com-
modores nearly even in the second half,
but the first-half hole proved too difficult
to climb out of.

Sterling finished 8-of-15 from the field

line, with Taylor converting 6-of-19 from
the field for the Lady Commodores, who
shot just 36.8 percent as a team and
made 2-of-12 from the 3-point line.
Unfortunately for the Lady Saints, they
were even worse from the field, making
29.1 percent overall and turning the ball
over 21 times compared to just 11 for
Gulf Coast.
Santa Fe stayed in the game by domi-
nating the glass, outrebounding Gulf
cost 61-44 and collecting 31 offensive
boards.
Monique Bunk did all of the heavy lift-
ing offensively for Santa Fe, finishing
with 32 points on 13-of-28 from the field
and 4-of-10 from 3-point range.

A short jumper by Treyvonna

by Crawford made it 43-38 Chipo-

When push




comes to shove


How did Carl Edwards win Sunday at Phoenix
International Raceway? With a little help from his new Ford
friend, 2012 Sprint Cup champion Brad Keselowski.
On the last restart with two laps to go,
Keselowski gave Edwards a big shove past Jimmie
Johnson, who was lined up on the outside of
Edwards.
In days gone by, whe Eil jr' an-.:i d
Keselowski made contact it wvoull :eid o:i- i .:,1
their race cars sailing into HIE. walil A: Edw;vir':
said after the race: "We all I n:ow. thjl
Brad and I have not had tie be.:t
history. It was pretty bad jt
one point."
A checkered flag
heals all wounds,
and you can thank a
grandson of Henry Ford
for helping mend the
fence between fierce
competitors.
'Jim Farley and
Edsel Ford came to
that media day at
the Hall of Fame just
to sit us in a room and
say: 'Look, we want to win a:
a team. We want to do whal -'
can to help one another,' jnrd htI

Edwards said.
And who is Jim Farley v,:yu
ask? He is Ford's executive v,. c
president of global markelin,
sales and service. So, yes.
"Win on Sunday, sell on
Monday" is back in a big'.va,'.

AF JOHN RAOUX
Denny, Denny, Denny. See liow Icig you iarn
remain ri liilipped .
Did Denny Hamlin
break the code?
Eve-i if you never saw the movie-"Fight.
Club," you still probably heard the famous line .
regarding the first rule of Fight Club: "You do:
noi alk at.aoul Fight Club." The prevailing policy
regarding NJASCAR and its new Generation t. car
see-ms to be that you do not speak ill of Gen-6.
Denny Hamlin, perhaps in a weak moment,
broke ranks and in unspeakable fashion.

What did he say
that was so horrible?
He actually compared Gen-6 to Gen-5. The,
early ijays of Gen-5, to be specific, Gulp! A.
Godwin Kelly notes in "Hot Topics" next door,
H mlin might need a reminder about the "one
tbi happy family" rule. Sure, it's difficult so
iar to get the new cars to pass each other, .
.jnrl single-file racing seems to be .he way tI'c
go Again, "so far"), but you're not supposed to
.Ai it.

Then what do you say instead?
A million alternatives are out there. Even
Tony Stewart, never known to be shy about his
honest feelings, found a nice way to describe
the, Gen-6 cars after racing them on a "normal"
track in Phoenix: "lt will change. But I think
lor the.first race, it is pretty sporty, so far I
think." Yes, that was two "I thinks." Translation:
Paihence isn't always easy, but I think we'll figure
I out. Meanwhile, the cars look pretty good -I
