Sunland annexed by Marianna


BYANGIE COOK
acook@jcfloridan.com

Welcome to Marianna,
Sunland. The facility or
more precisely, the land on
which is sits is now of-
ficially part of the city.
At Tuesday's regular
meeting, commission-
ers Rico Williams, John


Roberts, James Wise, Tra-
vis Ephriam
and Paul
Donofro Jr.
voted unan-
imously to
approve the
annexa-
Den tion of more
than 500
acres in Central Jackson


County that are home
to the Sunland Center'
Agency.
The property is one of
the larger parcels annexed
by the city in recent years.
Others of comparable size
include the sites of Florida
Caverns State Park on the
city's north side and the
Family Dollar Distribution


Center to the south.
Commissioners voted
to pass Annexation Ordi-
nance No. 1012 concern-
ing the approximately
517.82-acre parcel, which
is contiguous to the City's
corporate limits. The land
is owned by the board of
trustees of the Internal
Improvement Trust Fund


and managed as Sunland
Center by the Agency for
Persons with Disabilities.
City Manager Jim Dean
said there would be no im-
mediate practical changes
for Sunland, since the fa-
cility has long been a cqs-
tomer of city-provided ser-
vices like water, sewer and
natural gas.


Also, with Sunland being
part of a state agency, the
city will see no increase in
ad valorem taxes, which is
often a plus for a munici-
pality considering volun-
tary annexation.
Dean said annexing
Sunland was just part of a

BOOK BONANZA

County library system to hold book sale March 15 and 16


BY DEBORAH BUCKHALTER
dbuckhalter@jcfloridan.com

Avid readers will have a golden op-
portunity next weekend to pick up a big
supply of books for practically nothing.
The Jackson County library system has
weeded thousands of volumes from
its stacks and will sell the withdrawn
books next Friday and Saturday at .25
to .5.0 cents for paperbacks, and $1 for
most of the hardbacks in the big sale.


It will be held inside the multipur-
pose room of the Marianna branch li-
brary on Friday, March 15, from 9 a.m.
to 6 p.m., and on Saturday, March 16,
from 9 a.m. until 2 p.m. The library is
located at 2929 Green St. in Marianna.
The range of available books is vast;
there are coffee table books like art
volumes, along with mysteries, ad-
ventures, travelogues, cookbooks, fic-
tion of all kinds, biographies and other
non-fiction, and there are children's


books. There are some large-print
books as well as volumes with stan-
dard-sized type. The books will be gen-
erally grouped into categories at the
sale, but it will also be something of a
treasure hunt.
The money raised will be used to
buy new books, and Jackson County
Library Director Jerry Keiser is hoping
the sale will generate about $3,000.

Sunshine Week

Redaction causes delays in getting court files


The Associated Press
It seems like a reasonable
idea: before the records in a
criminal or civil case can be
made public, Florida's clerks
of court must purge them of
all Social Security, credit card
and bank numbers.
But in many of the state's 67
counties, that task has caused
delays in the release of records
that are available to the public
under Florida's public records
laws. Even though many re-
cords lack such information,
every file has to be screened
to make sure they are free
of personal information un-
der a new law that went into


effect last year. Delays in get-
ting the court records can pre-
vent information ab6ut cases
from being released in a time-
ly manner. This is important
not only to the media, but to
individuals and businesses
that need quick access to cas-
es they wish to learn about.
The Associated Press and
newspapers throughout the
state visited every county's
clerk of court offices in recent
weeks to see whether each is
complying with the law and
how much of a delay it is caus-
ing in the release of informa-
tion. The project, under the
See FILES, Page 9A


The Jackson County Floridan's participation in the Sunshine Week
project found files requested from the Jackson County Clerk of
Courts office were received without delay; no information that should
have been redacted was contained within.

ReStore


March 22
BY DEBORAH BUCKHALTER
dbuckhalter@jcfloridan.com
Jackson County Habitat for Humanity
has moved into its new headquarters,
called ReStore, at 4736 U.S. 90 in Mari-
anna and will have a grand opening and
ribbon-cutting ceremony on March 22,
and the event will include a silent auc-
tion fundraiser. The store will open at
10 a.m., the ribbon cutting will com-
mence at 11:30 a.m., and at noon a lun-
cheoh of hotdogs, chips and drinks will
be spread for the crowd. The food was
donated by Chuck Hudson, Financial
Center Manager for First Commerce
Credit Union.
The bidding begins at the start of the
Friday event and will continue through
Saturday at 1 p.m. Winning bidders will
be contacted for pick-up of their items.
The ReStore will be open Tuesday-
Friday from 10 a.m. until 6 p.m., and
on Saturday from 9 a.m. until 3 p.m.
Donations can be dropped off on Mon-
days, as well as the rest of the week,
with a drive-through drop-off area at
the back of the store.
The store carries a wide variety of
gently used or new, excess merchan-
dise donated by individuals and busi-
ness, including figurines, toys and
clothing, appliances, furnishings and
building supplies. All donations are
tax-deductible.
All thrift store sales go back into build-
ing homes for low-incomre families who
pay back the cost of the home by way of
low-interest loans and "sweat equity."
The 10,000-sq.-ft. building has space
for Habitat office, its warehouse and its
thrift store. This move has been gradual

wwState Farm

Before investing, consider the funds' investment objectives,
risks, charges and expenses. Contact State Farm VP Management
Corp. (1-800447-4930) for a prospectus containingthis and other
information. Read it carefully. Securities, insurance and annuity
products are not FDIC insured, are not guaranteed by State Farm
Bank" and are subject to investment risk,.including possible loss
of principal. Investing involves risk, including potential for loss.


Tips For Starting Out In Mutual Funds
By Staff Writer State FarmTm Employee
A mutual fund is an investment that pools together funds from many investors who have the same
investment objectives. The money is managed by a professional who analyzes the financial markets and
selects investments. Apd the pool is large enough to afford a diverse array of securities, something that
can be too expensive for most individual investors to do themselves.
A mutual fund provides an opportunity to invest in a diversified portfolio. The access to professional
management and a diversified portfolio makes mutual funds popular with many individuals who are
investing for retirement, a child's college education, or other long-term goals. Whether you are doing the
research yourself or working with a registered agent, understanding some of the basics may help you
make a more educated decision.
Starting Your Research
There are thousands of funds available, but how do you choose? Funds are broken down into a few
basic categories: stock, bond, and hybrid (mixed stock and bond) funds,: lower risk and higher risk,:
domestic and international. If you start by thinking about those categories and how they fit your goals,
you can sort through the options a bit more efficiently.
The key offering information for a mutual fund is found in the prospectus, a document that explains
the investment objective, the fees, and the fund management. Start with the investment objective. Does
it fit what you are looking for? If you won't need this money for years, perhaps you may look to take more
risk.
Fees And Expenses
The next thing to consider is the sales charge. Many funds charge investors when they purchase
shares in the fund. This is known as a front load. Some will charge you a back end load when you take
money out. This is used to compensate the registered agent who assisted you with your selection. Such
assistance is valuable!
You should also take a look at the fund's expense ratio. This is a measure of what it costs an
investment company to operate a mutual fund. Depending on the type of fund, operating expenses vary
widely. The largest component of operating expenses is the fee paid to a fund's investment manager/
advisor. Other costs include recordkeeping, custodial services, taxes, legal expenses, and accounting
and auditing fees. Some funds have a marketing cost referred to as a 12b-1 fee, which would also be
included in operating expenses.
Looking At Performance
With the expenses in mind, take a look at the fund's long-term performance.You want to get a sense
of how it does when the financial markets are strong and when they are weak. Every investment has its
ups and downs, but you want to make sure you can live with the fund's volatility and that the volatility is
appropriate for that particular investment. As part of that, you want to compare the fund's performance
to an appropriate market index, such as the S&P 500 for a U.S. large company stock fund orthe Russell
2000 Index for a U.S. small company stock fund.
This seems like a lot of work, but there are some helpful resources available. Mornirngstar, a company
that evaluates mutual funds, has great information on its website. Many people use a registered agent to
help them, too.
Investing involves risk, including potential for loss.
Diversification and asset allocation do not assure a profit or protect against loss. Foreign investments
involve greater risks than U.S. investments, including political and economic risks and the risk of currency
fluctuations. Bonds are subject to interest rate risk and may decline in value due to an increase in interest
rates. The S&P 5001 Index tracks the common stock performance of 500 large U.S. companies.

Protect right



to privacy

tate Sen. Rob Bradley said it's "inconsistent with
the American experience" for law enforcement to
use drones to spy on citizens.
"Imagine if King George had drones when there was
the Boston Tea Party," said Bradley, R-Fleming Island.
Bradley- whose district includes Alachua, Bradford
and Clay counties is among the co-sponsors of a bill
that would ban law enforcement from using drones to
gather evidence or other information.
The measure would make exemptions if there is a
high risk of a terrorist attack. It would also allow law
enforcement to use drones if a search warrant is ob-
tained or there is reasonable suspicion that swift action
is needed to prevent imminent danger to life, serious
property damage, a suspect's escape or destruction of
evidence.
Those exemptions are big enough to drive a truck
through them, but the bill is a good first step to regulate
the use of drones. Also called unmanned aerial vehicles,
drones have been used by the military in hunting down
terrorists and are now gaining more civilian uses.
Gainesville is home to companies developing drone
technology. University of Florida researchers are study-
ing the use of drones in tracking wildlife. Law enforce-
ment, including the Mliami-Dade Police Department,
has started using the same kind of technology.
Bradley and other lawmakers should be lauded for
getting ahead of technological changes to protect
privacy. Unfortunately, Bradley is on the wrong side of
Sa similar effort to require law enforcement to have a
warrant before seizing text messages, photos or other
material from cellphones or other personal electronic
devices.
The measure sponsored by state Sen. Jeff Brandes,
R-St. Petersburg would require police to have court
approval before searching the electronic device of
someone who has been arrested. The legislation in-
cludes exceptions in cases involving national security
or a missing child. The bill would also ban police from
tracking the location of an electronic device without a
warrant.
The Senate Criminal Justice Committee approved the
measure on a 5-2 vote with Bradley as one of the two
dissenting votes. He said the difference between the
measures is the drone bill protects the rights of law-
abiding citizens, while the prohibition against search-
ing cellphones would apply to individuals who have
been arrested.
It's a reasonable argument, but we disagree. If some-
one is arrested in a roadside stop for an offense such as
drunken driving, it shouldn't give law enforcement an
open invitation to snoop through personal communi-
cations unrelated to the offense.
Two cases pending before the Florida Supreme Court
would address the issues of whether law enforcement
needs warrants to track or search phones. As with the
drone bill, lawmakers shouldn't wait for the courts to
act and should send a strong message about protecting
privacy by passing the measure.

Please microchip


and tag your pets

Recently, Partners For Pets has taken in several dogs
that by just looking at them we knew the owners would
be looking for them. We always put a hold on these pets
so we can exhaust every effort to reunite them with
their owners. We list them on Petfinder.com. and on our
Facebook page at Partners For Pets, Marianna, Florida.
We always have Jackson County Floridan photographer
Mark Skinner take their pictures for the Pet Of The Week
they run every Sunday.
Because of Mark's picture in the Sunday, March 3,
paper, Dr. Alex Dudley and his daughter were reunited
with Duchess and Blue, their beloved pets. Three Rivers
State Parks employees had found the dogs and turned
them in to us. We knew immediately that someone
would be looking for these beautiful animals.
Just last week we took in a beautiful little Yorkie found
running around the college. Two hours after we posted
him on FB someone recognized him and contacted his
owner who came to the shelter immediately to claim
him.
We just want to express the importance of keeping
collars with tags on your pets as we do know they can
get loose. Please tag your animals with name tags or
make sure they have their rabies tag on their collar
as that can be tracked through the veterinarian. You
should also consider having your pet microchipped, as
most shelters and vets scan the dogs that come in to see
if they can find the owners.
Please, if your pet goes missing always contact your
local shelter or animal control to see if your dog was
turned in or picked up. Check the websites or Face-
book pages of the shelters. Most shelters only hold the
animals for seven days before they put them up for
adoption. We always love for pets to be reunited with
their owners.

Fun times with Joe Biden


A t the annual Gridiron Club
dinner put on byWashington
journalists Saturday night,
a singer portraying Joe Biden
bragged about the tough jobs he
has tackled as vice president.
"I'm not Barack! I am Joe
Biden," he sang to the tune of "I
am a Rock." He'll serve President
Obama's second term, the Biden
character proclaimed. "Not gonna
wait til two-thousand sixteen."
Don't let anyone tell you "'There
are no second acts in American
lives." E Scott Fitzgerald, who wrote
that puzzling line, never knew Joe
Biden.
Biden is on track to be one of the
most influential vice presidents in
history. And, no, that's not damning
with faint praise.
It's a.great time to be Joe Biden.
While the boss's position was still
"evolving," Biden said on NBC's
"Meet the, Press" in May that he
himself was "absolutely comfort-
able" with gay marriage. Nudged,
Obama came around a few days
later, electrifying gay supporters.
After the Newtown massacre,
Obama turned to Biden to explore
gun control efforts. While prospects
are dim of much action on Capitol
Hill, Biden has kept gun control
advocates allied with the president.
And it was Biden who rescued the
nation from the fiscal cliff. Drawing
on his four decades in Washington,
Biden negotiated a deal with Senate
Minority Leader Mitch McConnell,
R-Ky, just hours before the Jan. 1
deadline.
No second acts? By proving his
own worth as Obama's right-hand
man, Biden's own star is rising as a
leading presidential contender in


2016. Not bad for a guy who had
ito abandon his 1988 presidential
quest amid charges that he had pla-
giarized other politicians' speeches.'
A video surfaced showing parts of
Biden's campaign speech and parts
of a speech by British Labor Party
leader Neil Kinnock. Biden insisted
that he'd failed to attribute the pas-
sages to Kinnock only that once,
but reporters uncovered similari-
ties with other politicians' speeches
,and an unfortunate F in law school
for plagiarism.
Voters had all but forgotten that
unpleasantness by 2008, when
Biden ran again for president. This
time he made news by saying what
he actually thought about another
Democratic contender.
"You got the first mainstream
African-American who is articulate
and bright and clean and a nice-
looking guy," Biden told an inter-
viewer in January 2007. "I mean,
that's storybook, man."
In Washington, saying what you
think is a gaffe, and Biden is a gaffe
machine. He's a character a
boisterous, deal-making politician
of the old school who loves to hear
himself talk. Obama obviously
didn't hold a grudge, and Biden's
loose lips never seem fatal.
Biden has known great per-
sonal tragedy. He was 29, married


with three little kids when he was
elected to the Senate in 1972.
Weeks later, just before Christmas,
his wife and one-year-old daughter
were killed in a car crash in Dela-
ware. His young sons, Beau, 4, and
Hunter, 3, survived with serious
injuries. Biden was on Capitol Hill
that afternoon, interviewing poten-
tial staffers.
In his shock and grief, Biden
planned to give up his Senate
seat and return home, but he was
persuaded to keep his job. He
took the official oath in his sons'
hospital room and began the daily
Amtrak commute fromWilmington
to Washington. He continued the
routine for 36 years.
No second acts? Biden married Jill
Jacobs in 1977, and their daughter
Ashleywas born in 1981.
After decades in public life, Biden
has no shortage of critics. Fox News
chief Roger Ailes is quoted in a new
book calling Biden "dumb as an
ashtray."
Love him or loathe him, Biden,
70, always seems to be having
more fun than most people. At the
ceremonial swearing-in of new
senators in the old Senate chamber
in January, Biden was a jovial, jok-
ing host.
"Spread your legs," he told a new
senator's husband. "You're going to
be frisked."
Biden's entertainment quotient
was so high that fans petitioned for
a C-SPAN reality show trailing him
on his daily rounds.
No second acts? Biden perseveres.
He may yet have a third.

Legislature can cure major treatment inequity


Imagine hearing that you have
cancer- a diagnosis each of
us dreads for ourselves and our
loved ones'. Now imagine hearing
that the treatments you need to
fight it, medications your doctor
specifically prescribed, are be-
yond your financial means simply
because of the way you would take
them orally instead of intrave-
nously (IV).
This is the issue countless cancer
patients across Florida are experi-
encing. It's also why the upcoming
2013 Florida State Legislative Ses-
sion is so important to providing
cancer patients with equal access
to cancer medications regardless
of whether the drugs come in the
form of a pill or through an IV
Orally administered cancer treat-
ment is becoming an increasingly
important component of cancer
care. In 2008, fewer than 10 percent
of cancer medications existed in an
Soral form. This year, that number
is expected to grow to at least 25
percent. For some types of cancer,
orally administered medications
already are the standard of care.
Yet insurance benefit design has
not kept pace-with this advance in
treatment. Under some insurance
plans, cancer patients who receive
their medication orally will face
out-of-pocket costs ranging from
hundreds to thousands of dollars
per month, even if that particular
medication is the only treatment


available. However, patients who
receive their cancer treatment
intravenously are
typically responsible
for covering only the
cost of an officevisit
co-pay, usually $20
or $30.
Dr. Alan This disparity ex-
ist ists because inisur-
ance companies
generally cover an
W-administered medication under
medical benefits. Typically, though,
they cover orally adiintistered
mreds through a plan's pharmacy
benefit. This distinction is hugely
significant, as pharmacy benefits
often require patients to cover a
much higher share of the cost.'
In 2008, the Oregon State Legis-
lature passed a bill intended to ad-
dress this very problem. Today, 21
states plus the District of Columbia
have enacted similar laws, usu-
ally known as "parity legislation."
Unfortunately, Florida is not one of
these states.
Consequently, cancer patients in
our state will continue to face high
cost-sharing for orally adminis-
tered cancer treatments. Such an
approach keeps life-saving medica-
tions out of reach for far too many
patients, reducing their quality of
life and sometimes threatening
their very chance of survival. In
many cases, an orally administered
treatment is the only one available,


forcing cancer patients to choose
between family financial stability
and treatments they badly need.
Orally administered cancer treat-
ments offer many other benefits.
For example, they can be less bur-
densome to patients than IV-ad-
ministered cancer treatments. Also,
patients taking orally administered
cancer treatments may take their
medications at home rather than
having to make frequent visits to an
infusion clinic, reducing costs and
easing inconveniences associated
with travel to the doctor's office,
leave from work and, in many
cases, caretaker assistance. These
benefits can make a profound
impact on a patient's ability to
maintain employment throughout
treatment and, more generally, on
one's overall quality of life.
The Alliance for Access to Cancer
Care is dedicated to ensuring that
parity legislation becomes law in
Florida this year. That's why the
Alliance fully supports The Cancer
Treatment Fairness Act, which Rep.
Debbie Mayfield filed as House Bill
301, and Sen. Lizbeth Benacquisto
as Senate Bill 422.
I urge our state legislators to show
their support of these bills in order
to help the countless patients in '
Florida experiencing unjust hard-
ships while they fight a battle for
their lives.

Week in Review


From staff reports
SUNDAY, MARCH 3
Sinkholes in Florida:
Facts and answers
In light of recent high-
profile incidents involving
sinkholes in the state, the
Florida Department of
Environmental Protection
issued information about
the nature of sinkholes
a natural and common
feature of Florida's land-
scape and the proper
protocol to use if you
encounter a sinkhole in an
urban area.

Home on the water
Having lived near rivers
for years, native Florid-
ian Lois Jones felt right at
home when she bought
the land on which her
house sits today, nestled
in a wooded area along
the Chipola.
Jones' love of- and
respect for the natural
environment of Florida is
evident throughout Jones'
two-bedroom home, in
the decor and design,
which she did herself.

More Master
Gardeners graduate
Another 15 Master Gar-
deners are now available
to help local residents
with their questions about
spring planting, pests, fer-
tilizer, soil and all manner
of other inquiries as they
plant and care for their
flowers, trees and veg-
etables. The annual train-
ing session ended writh a
graduation ceremony 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
becomingexperts in the
field.
Jackson County had 28
Master Gardeners before
the new class graduated
to bring the local compli-
ment to 43.
The new members of
the team have graduated,
just in time to spread the
word about the Master
Gardeners' upcoming an-
nual plant sale and garden
fair, an event of Saturday,
March 23. It will be held at
the Jackson County Exten-
sion Office, and runs from
7 a.m. until 2 p.m. Space
is limited, so vendors are
encouraged to call Anita
Crossley as soon as pos-
sible to reserve a place
in the field. She can be
reached at 209-5942 or at
crossleyyy@gmail.com.
I TUESDAY, MARCH 5
Something extra on
tap for St. Patty's Day
An extra element has
been added to the up-
coming St. Patrick's Day
celebration in Marianna.
Set for March 16 from 2-6
p.m., the party will include
a truck pull, in which
ten-member teams will
grab hold of a thick, heavy
rope and pull a big pink
fire truck 20-25 feet. The
team that finishes with the
fastest time wins a trophy
and/or other prizes. The
decision to include a truck
pull this year came last
Friday, according to Marl-
anna Main Street Director
Charlotte Brunner. The
teams 'won't be pulling just
any old fire truck-this one
has a special new purpose
after being taken out of
fire service.
Each team will pay a $50
entry fee. All the money
raised will go to the newly-
formed local chapter of
the Guardians of the Rib-
bon/Pink Heals, a cancer


support organization.
The group leases the fire
truck for $1 a year from
its founders and uses it as
a showpiece to increase
cancer awareness and in
efforts to raise money to
financially help women
who have beep diagnosed
with cancer.

8 arrested after raid
of suspected meth lab
Eight people were ar-
rested on various charges
after the Jackson County


Drug Task Force raided
a suspected meth house
near Graceville.
Authorities say the raid
was part of an ongoing
investigation that led to
the arrest of 55-year-old
Rudy Rodriguez, de-
scribed in a JCDTF press.
release as the head of a
suspected methamphet-
amine distribution ring in
the county. He is charged
with possession and sale
of a controlled substance
and with possession of
drug paraphernalia. His
bond was set at $32,500 at
his first court appearance
on the charges.
Authorities said in the
press release that "Rodri-
guez and his organization
have been substantial
suppliers of metham-
phetamine to our area
for some time" and that
additional defendants ad
charges are pending in the
case as the investigation
continues to progress.
WEDNESDAY, MARCH 6
Mail cardier
saves the day
If rural mailbox owners
in the Cottondale area
got their letters a tad later-
than usual on Monday,.
there's a good reason for
that, as resident and mail
customer Laird Williams
can attest. He was driv-
ing down Sapp Road near
his home around 3 p.m.
Monday when he saw a
fluff of suspicious smoke
ahead. He drove on down
and discovered a grass fire
off the side of the road.
Propelled by strong winds,
it was quickly spreading
toward the tree line. .
Worried that the racing
blaze could set the woods
on fire, Williams stopped
in a neighbor's yard to
alert her and to call 911.
While he and the neighbor
were standing in her yard
talking, Postal Carrier
Jonathan Bailey pulled
in to deliver her mail. He
handed it off and drove
on down to get a look at
the fire himself. Williams
watched as Bailey parked
near the fire, got out of
his car in a hurry, and ran
to retrieve an old military
field shovel from his trunk.
Bailey then dug out the
fire. He shoveled some
of the burning grass on
to the roadway, letting it
burn itself out there while
he continued to dig out
the rest. His effort likely
prevented a hard-to-fight
wildfire in the woods, Wil-
liams believes.

Basketball tourney

rants look for a boost to

Harts donate $1,000
to trail project
Jim Hart's special con-
nection to Bellamy Bridge
goes back to his childhood
growing up in Jackson
County. He was baptized
in the Chipola River when
he was 12 years old, the
old steel bridge towering
nearby.
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 histo-


rian 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. His work has created
a new potential niche
tourism draw, opened
the old haunt back up to
long-time local residents
and revealed it for the first
time to a younger set and
future generations.
Hart was impressed by

that and other work Cox
had done, and also by
the fact that tie 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 zig-
zag around some swampy
places as it now does.
So when Cox was
recently named Citizen
of theYear for all his ef-
forts, 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 orga-
nization as his favored
recipient. An oversized,
ceremonial check was
presented to the organiza-
*tionWednesday.

Man accused of
possessing child porn
With assistance from the
Marianna Police. Depart-
ment, the Florida Depart-
ment of Law Enforcement
located child pornography
Sean Ahearn Connors in
his dwelling at Southside
Apartments and took
him into custody there
Wednesday morning
without incident. He was
being held in the Jackson
County jail following his
arrest.
SThe case against Con-
nors arose from the
Florida Department of
Law Enforcement's child
pornography prevention
program, in which com-
puter monitoring revealed
him as a suspect. Last
week, that agency contact-
ed the Marianna Police
Department for assistance
in locating Connors, and
to coordinate efforts. The
local agency was asked
to secure the scene as the
FDLE mobile crime lab
collected evidence from
the apartment Wednesday.

Thief knocks radio
station off the air
A thief knocked a local
radio station off the air
temporarily this week,
but a suspect 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/WTOTAM/FM
signal to its broadcast
tower off Edgewood Road
in Marianna.
Robert Wendell 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 Police Depart-
ment. The theft, attendant
damage and labor costs to
repair the problem could
be in excess of $20,000,
Bryant said.

Talent show held
The "Black History 365"
talent show at Grand
Ridge School was held
Friday, rescheduled be-
cause of bad weather on
its original Feb. 22 date.
It started at 6 p.m. in the
school's old gym. Lynwood
"Funnyman" Williams was
the MC.
The event was co-spon-
sored by the school and
the local NAACP's Jackson
CountyYouth Council,
an NAACP division for


young people.

City employees of the

During Tuesday's com-
mission meeting, the City
of Marianna recognized its
top employees for March:
Aaron Neal and Christo-

Arrested Chipola
player out of tourney
Chris Thomas didn't play
in the JUCO state tourna-
ment with his Chipola
College teammates this
week. He sat out at least
part of the tournament in
jail.
A key guard on the team,
Thomas was granted no
bond in his first court ap-
pearance this week after
testing positive for mari-
juana in a standard drug
test given as a matter of
course to defendants who
are on conditional release
in a pre-trial intervention
program, according to
Stacy Goodson, the proba-
tion officer assigned to his
case.
The positive test results
constituted a violation of
the terms of his condition-
al release/pre-trial inter-
vention, which included
a standard no-drug rule
applied to all, defendants
in such intervention pro-
grams, Goodson said.
Thomas had been
granted the conditional
release and pre-trial
intervention late last year
after being charged-with
driving without a valid
driver's license and with
operating an unregistered
vehicle, according to court

Local Brief

Police searching for
GHS theft suspect
Local law enforcement
authorities are studying
videotape at GraceUilie
High School in an at-
tempt to identify whoev-
er tried to break into the
school Thursday night
Stuart Wiggins with the
Jackson County School
Board said someone
tried to kick out the glass
in two front doors, but
could not initially breach
the doors because of a
protective mesh mate-
rial. The individual never
got in, apparently scared
away when the school's
baseball team returned
to the front of campus in
a vehicle after a game.
Last week, someone
broke into an area of
Marianna Middle School
near physical education
facilities and piled cloth-
ing on the floor which
had been taken from
several student lockers
which didn't have locks.
Authorities are looking
into both incidents.

State Briefs


Record number of manatee
deaths caused by red tide
ST. PETERSBURG A deadly algae
bloom is causing a record number of
manatee deaths in Florida, state biolo-
gists said.
A red tide bloom has been killing ten
or more manatees a day and the deadly
algae bloom shows no sign of letting
up any time soon, the Tampa Bay
Times reported on Friday.
"This is probably going to be the
worst die-off in history," said Martine
DeWit, a veterinarian who oversees
the state's marine mammal pathology
laboratory.
The record for manatees killed by red
tide was set in 1996 with 151 killed by a
toxin in the algae bloom. As of Friday,
the number killed this year hit 149, and
the number could surpass the current
record by the end of the weekend.
DeWit said the toxins in the bloom
likely settled onto the sea grass that
manatee eat, causing them to become
paralyzed and eventually drown. The
grass beds will also likely retain their
poisonous coating for another two
months.
Nearly a dozen manatees have been
rescued and are being treated at the
Lowry Park Zoo in Tampa.

The organization is a nonprofit housing
ministry dedicated to eliminating pov-

labor in building the homes and the
people who receive the homes also put
in "sweat equity," helping build their
own houses and/or homes for others.
They also repay Habitat for the cost of
materials through no-interest loans
similar to traditional mortgages. Habi-

more houses.

now the part time corrections classes are
mirrored so students can attend in the
morning or at night any day of the week
and not miss coursework.
Open enrollment in the Part-time Ba-

Brevard


stuns Chipola

IBY DUSTIN KENT
dkent@jcfloridan.com

The Brevard Titans stunned the Chipola
Indians on Friday night in the semifinals
of the FCSAA State Tournament, stunning
the tourney hosts 82-72 at the Milton H.
Johnson Center, eliminating them from
the tournament and most likely ending
their season.
Nyles Evans scored 27 points and made
4-of-6 three-pointers to lead the Titans,
who overwhelmed the Indians with a bril-
liant shooting exhibition that included 12-
of-27 makes from long distance.
Addison Spruill added 19 points, and
Jure Gunjina had 18 points and 10 re-
bounds and knocked in four triples of his
own to help the Titans advance to Satur-
day night's championship game against
Central Florida.
Demetrious Floyd scored 19 points and
made 6-of-14 from the three-point line to
lead the Indians, while Earl Watson added
15 points and Cinmeon Bowers 14.
But Chipola was unable to contain out-
side shooting of the Titans, who made
nine from long distance in the second-half
alone.
"I thought it came down to our inability
to find their shooters," Indians coach Pat-
rick Blake said after the game. "We knew
going in that they were a tough matchup.;
They've got four guys out there who can
shoot it. They're very skilled. We just had a
run in the second half where we kept los-
ing their shooters."
Chipola led by as many as seven points
in the first half, but Brevard used an 11-2
run to close the half and take a 32-28 edge
into the break.
In the second half, threes by Gunjina
and Evans helped quickly push the lead to
double digits at 40-30, with three triples by
Floyd keeping the Indians close.
- His third triple of the half cut the Brevard
lead to 45-39, but a three by Jordan Smith;
and two more triples from Gunjina made
it 56-43 Titans with 11:13 to play
The Indians fought baqk with a 9-0 run
to cut the lead to four, as they started to
punish Brevard inside with Bowers and
Watson, with a three-point play by Bow-
ers, a bucket by Watson, and then two free
throws from Watson making it 63-59 with
6:55 remaining.
But Evans knocked down a clutch three-
pointer in response, and then made two
free throws to push-the lead right back up
to nine.
Another triple by Ben Patrick followed by
a Chipola turnover that led to a two from
Evans made it 73-61 Breyard with 4:48 left.
A three from Floyd and a dunk by Bowers
got the Indians back to within seven at 73-
66 with 2:37 to play, but Chipola never got
closer, with Evans and Spruill each making
2-of-2 free throws to get the lead back to 11
with just over a minute to play.
"We just couldn't match up and get stops
when we needed to," Blake said of his
team. '"And they killed us on the offensive
glass. It's a learning experience for this
group. It's just unfortunate I won't get to
coach our sophomores again."
It was a devastating loss for the Indians,
who fell to 26-5 and may be on the outside
looking in when it comes to the four at-
large bids to be given out Monday to the
NJCAA Tournament in Hutchinson, Kan.
After the game, Blake conceded that his
team would most likely not get a bid to
nationals.
"Yeah, probably not; this was most likely
ouIr last game," he said. "We just didn't take
advantage of some opportunities we had
throughout the year. We had a chance to
make up for that in the tournament, but
Brevard just outplayed us."

Gulf Coast beats Chipola
in FCSAA title game

BY DUSTIN KENT
dkent!jcfloridan.com

In the four previous matchups be-
tween the Chipola Lady Indians and
the Gulf Coast Lady Commodores in the
FCSAA State Championship game in
Marianna, the Lady Indians had come
away victorious on all four occasions.
But in the fifth face-off Saturday night
at the Milton H. Johnson Health Center,
it was the Lady Commodores' turn to
leave with the trophy, as they took a 61-
53 win over Chipola to advance to the
national tournament in Salina, Kan.
Tamara Taylor scored 21 of her game-i
high 31 points in the second half to
spark the Lady Commodores, includ-
ing a stretch of 13 straight points that
helped push them in front 46-41 with
eight minutes to play.
Gulf Coast fell behind 13-4 early after a
three-pointer by Rayven Brooks but ral-
lied back to go in front with a 12-1 run, a
layup by Taylor after a Chipola turnover
making it 16-14.
The lead was 23-22 at the break, but
Taylor helped her team extend the mar-
gin by taking over early in the second
half with an array of jumpers and drives
to the basket and ultimately proved too

Central Florida's Rasham Suarez takes a shot
against the Raiders on Friday.


BY DUSTIN KENT
dkent@jcfloridan.com

In a battle of two of the nation's top
10 teams, the No. 8 Central Florida
Patriots were victorious over the No.
3 Northwest Florida State Raiders
on Friday afternoon, eliminating the
Panhandle Conference champions
74-71 in the semifinals of the FCSAA
State Tournament at the Milton H.
Johnson Health Center.
With the win, the Patriots (29-3) ad-
vanced to Saturday's state champion-
ship game against the Brevard Titans.
For the Raiders (26-3), the season
may be over, or it may not be, as they
await word Monday on whether they
will be awarded one of four at-large
bids t o the expanded NJCAA tour-
nament March 18-23 in Hutchinson,
Kan.
Part of the reason why the Raiders
lost control of their own destiny is
that they had to play much of Friday's


game without their best player, as
sophomore All-American point guard
Chris Jones was given two technicals
with 6:40 in the first half for arguing
with an official and ejected from the
game.
The Raiders were down 13 after
Rasham Suarez hit two of the four
technical free throws, but Northwest
rallied in Jones' absence to cut the
lead to 41-32 at halftime and stormed
out of the gate in the second half with
a 10-2 run to get to within a point.
A two-handed put-back dunk by El-
gin Cook gave the Raiders their first
lead of the game at 51-50 with 12:10
to play, but Will Saunders answered
with a three on Central flHoriJo next
possession to put the Patriots back in
front.

and I wanted to step
up for her and for my
teammates."
The only negative for
Taylor's night was 10
missed free throws, as she
finished 8-of-18 at the
charity stripe, while the
Lady Commodores as a
team were just 19-of-36,
including 1-of-10 in the fi-
nal minute of the game.
Unfortunately for the
Lady Indians, they were
unable to take advantage,
missing 1-of-4 free throws
in the final minute as well
and going 13-of-25 for the
game.
It wasn't a smooth finish
for Gulf Coast, but for first-
year Lady Commodores
coach Vemrnette Skeete, the
manner of victory wasn't
as important as the sea-
son-long journey for her
and her team.
"I just think about how
we've been working since
June to get here and to rep-
resent our tradition and
honor (former Gulf Coast
coach Roonie Scovel), who


is like a mother to me, and
represent and respect all
that she did not only for
Gulf Coast but for women's
basketball. We just wanted
to carry on that tradition
and add to it and keep it
going."
The legendary Lady
Commodores coach Scovel
won eight state and three
national titles in her ten-
ure at Gulf Coast, and she
was there to congratulate
her former player Skeete
after the game.
While Skeete has a long
way to go to approach her
mentor's overall resume,
she was able to do some-
thing in her first year as
coach that Scovel was un-
able to do in four tries,
which is to beat Chipola
in Marianna in a regional
final.
The last championship
matchup between the
teams was in 2009 when
the Lady Indians took a 68-
67 victory.
Chipola won three
straight final matchups
with Gulf Coast from 2005-
07, winning twice by three
points and once by four in
overtime.


There was no such late-
game magic for the Lady
Indians this time, how-
ever, as poor shooting,
foul trouble, and the supe-
rior strength inside of Gulf
Coast proved too much to
overcome.
Chipola shot just 29.8
percent (17-of-57) from the
field and was outrebound-
ed 52-37 on the game.
The Lady Indians also
had their two leading scor-
ers Brooks and Kristine
Brance foul out, with three
other players finishing the
game with four fouls.
After the game, Chipola
coach Greg Franklin said
his team, which only ro-
tates seven players, just
didn't have enough en-
ergy to get it done after
two tough wins over State
College of Florida at Jack-
sonville and Northwest
Florida State in the first
two rounds.
"I just thought we were
real flat and a little dead
out there," the coach sail.
"I think last night took a
lot out of us. When you
play. three games against
teams of that caliber, it's
just tough to maintain


that energy"
Brooks finished with 15
points to lead Chipola,
while Jade Givens had 11
points, Treyvonna Brooks
line, and Rahni Bell 11.
Chipola's season may not
be over yet, as the Lady
Indians are still in the mix
for one of the four at-large
bids for the now expand-
ed national tournament
that will be announced
Monday.
With 25 wins and two vic-
tories each over Gulf Coast
and Northwest Florida
State during the season,
the Lady Indians seem to
have the resume to get a
bid to the tournament.
The Lady Commodores
won't have to sweat out an
at-large selection thanks
to Saturday's win, which
Skeete said means more
to her than simple fact of
winning a championship.
"It means I got to prove
(the players) right by
showing them that hard
work pays off," she said.
"That makes me happy
because I know they put in
the work. That's something
they can carry on through
life."

and for the first time, the

After playing three games

down another long range
shot to put the Raiders
ahead 69-67.
After a pair of free throws
by Eugene McCroy tied
the game with 2:06 to play,
Fulton made a tough driv-
ing layup with 1:03 on
the clock to make it 71-69
Raiders, but Jordan Davis
stuck a three on the Pa-
triots' next possession to
make it 72-71.
Fulton then turned the


Chipola and made five
three-pointers, includ-
ing three during a key
stretch in the second
half to help the Lady In-
dians blow open a close
game.
It was a 23-22 Northwest
Florida State lead at half-
time, but the Lady Indians
used a quick 7-0 run early
in the second half with a
three from Kristin Brance,
a driving bucket by Jas-
mine Crawford, and two
from Rayven Brooks to go
up 29-25.
A three-point play by Ta-
varsha Scott put the Lady
Raiders back up 35-34, but
the Lady Indians respond-
ed with a 19-4 run to seize
control of the game.
A steal by Crawford led
to a layup from Brooks
to start the run and get
Chipola back up, with Bell


ball over on the ensuing
trip for Northwest, as a
pass intended for team-
mate Shykeem Jackson
went out of bounds.
Suarez then hit two
clutchfree throwswith 22.6
seconds to play to put the
Patriots up three, and the
Raiders were forced into a
deep and contested three-
point attempt by Jackson
that came up short as time
expired.
McCrory finished with 16
points to lead Central Flor-
ida, with Suarez adding 13
points and five assists, and
Saunders' 12 points on 4-


following with a three and
a long two-point jumper to
make it 41-37.
Another steal and two
from Crawford extended
the lead to 10 with 10:.4 to
play, and a short jumper by
Brance and another buck-
et by Brooks made it 53-39
with 6:36 remaining.
Bell's third triple of
the second half pushed
the lead to 15, and a la-
yup by Brooks off of a
feed from Jade Givens
made it 60-45 with 4:06 to
play.
The Lady Raiders never
got closer than 12the rest
of the way, as Chipola
made 10 of its last 12 free
throws to end the game.
Brooks added 18 points
and nine rebounds for
the Lady Indians, while
Brance had 11 points, and
Crawford finished with


of-6 from the three-point
line.
Fulton led the Raiders
with 16 points on 6-of-14
shooting, while Edwards
had 14 points and 10 re-
bounds, Cook 12 points
and nine rebounds, and
Glass 12 points.
It was a tough night for
Jones even before the ejec-
tion, with the 5-foot-10
guard going 1-for-7 and 0-
for-3 from the three-point
line for three points in 13
minutes.
The Patriots took advan-
tage early by scoring the
first seven points of the


nine points and seven
steals.
Givens had eight points
and two steals and played
24 minutes on a night
when she was question-
able to play after suffering
a knee injury in Wednes-
day's win over State Col-
lege at Jacksonville.
She and Crawfordhelped
spearhead a dominant de-
fensive effort by the Lady
Indians, who held the Lady
Raiders to just 28.8 percent
(19-of-66) shooting from .
the field and. 1-of-14 from
the three-point line.
Chipola also forced
Northwest into 26
turnovers.,

hold off Lady Titans


BY DUSTIN KENT

The Gulf Coast State
Lady Commodores be-
came the first partici-
pants in Saturday's cham-
pionship round Friday
afternoon with an 80-70
semifinal victory over the
St. Petersburg LadyTitans
in the FSCAA State Tour-
nament at the Milton H.
Johnson Health Center.
With the win, the Lady
Commodores earned a
chance to play for a state
title against the winner of
Friday night's matchup
between Chipola and
Northwest Florida State.
Necole Sterling post-
ed her second 20-point
game of the tournament
Friday, scoring 21 points
on 8-of-18 to lead the
Lady Commodores, while
Jessica Morton added 16
points and 10 rebounds,
Tamara Taylor 14 points
and Aissata Maiga 12.


Ayshia McNeil scored
25 points on 10-of-23 for
the Lady Titans in the
loss, while Antqunita
Reed had 19 points and
10 rebounds.
The Lady Commodores
led 43-34 at halftime and
blew the game open in
the second half, outscor-
ing St. Petersburg 27-12
to start and take a 70-46
advantage.
But the Lady Titans did
not go away easily and
stormed back with a 24-
6 run of their own to cut
the lead to 76-70 with un-
der a minute to go on a
bucket by Precilla Hill.
Gulf Coast raced back
down the court and got a
score from Maiga to push
it back to eight, however,
and then got a stop and
two free throws by Ster-
ling to secure the win.
The Lady Commodores
improved to 26-4 with the
win, while St. Petersburg's
season ended at24-8.

LAKE SEMINOLE
Bass fishing is fair.
The pre-spawn staging
is reported to be near-
ing an end. Best bet is to
concentrate on shallow-
water spawning fish right
now. Sandbar areas on
the main lake should be
productive. Texas-rigged
lizards are recommended.
For fish that are "hard" on
the beds, switch to lighter
tackle and fish patiently.

Report
Shallow-water fishing has
been slowed by frontal
passages. Best fishing is
during the middle of the
day and later. Rat-L-Traps
and trick worms may pro-
duce around shallow and
mid-depth structure. For
deeper fish, particularly
on the ledges, go with a
Carolina-rigged worm.
Crappies are well into
pre-spawn and spawn-
ing mode. Deep-water
schools will be breaking
up and remnant fish will


seek shallower water. Try
minnows, crappie jigs and
small spinners near banks
with structure present.
Catfish are slow, but
should pick up soon.
'Bream fishing is finally
beginning to show some
positive signs.

Random road buddies on memorable trip


I came upon Mr. Brinley
near a scenic bend in
the Toccoa River called
Deep Hole. I was fishing
for trout while he and his
companions were out for
a day's sightseeing in the
north Georgia mountains.
-He owned a small vaca-
tion cabin near Woody
Gap.
Like most folks I meet
on riverbanks, Mr. Brinley
was a friendly sort, engag-
ing me in interesting
and pleasant conversa-
tion. We spoke of our
mutual fondness for the
Southern Appalachians
and how we never cease
looking for excuses to go
there.
I told Mr. Brinley I was
from southwest Georgia
by way of southeast Ala-
bama and was surprised
to leahi he called Geneva,
Alabama home. Small
world. When he learned
my name, he even admit-
ted to having read my
writing from time to time.
He was also acquainted
with some kinfolk of mine.
-By the time we parted
company, I felt like I'd
made a friend. A gadabout
fisherman never knows
who he might run into

during his travels.
One day later, on an-
other stream, I made the
,acquaintance of a true
character, an avid out-
doorsman from Centre,
Alabama. This fellow,
whose name I never
caught, spoke fondly of
the crappies in northeast
Alabama's Weiss Lake,
near his home. Like Mr.
Brinley, he, too, loved
the mountains. He was
particularly fond of Rock
Creek and Blue Ridge
Wildlife Management
Area.
I asked him how long
he'd been encamped on
the WMA and he told me
he'd been there since early
April. After some quick
figuring, it dawned ,on me
it would soon be three.
months since he'd left Ala-
bama. Knowing there was
a two-week camping limit
on this Fannin County,
Georgia trout stream, I


asked him how he came to
be there so long.
"Aw, shoot," he replied,
"that limit just goes for
one campsite. We just
move to another one every
14 days."
He went on to explain
how his wife had even
managed to procure a
cashier's position at a
little country store down
the road to help pass the
time and make herself a
"little garage sale money"
for the duration. I never
learned just when the
couple might be contem-
plating going back home
to Centre, but surmised
it probably wouldn't be
anytime soon.
And then there was
Shorty.
Shorty was a bandy-
legged little old moun-
tain man born and bred
near Hiawassee. Most
likely, judging from his
nasal twang and overall
demeanor, he'd never
ventured more than a few
miles from the South-
ern highlands and the
shadow of Brasstown Bald,
Georgia's highest peak.
I met Shorty at the
checkout counter of a little
convenience store. I stood


in line behind him for a
full fifteen minutes as he
negotiated with the clerk
over the price of half a bag
of ice. He was vehemently
(and quite entertainingly)
expressing the fact that he
didn't need "nairy" whole
bag, "jest" enough "fer"
three or four "dranks"
"atter" he finished work.
"Work," I surmised, had
something to do with the
conglomeration of rusty,
greasy automobile parts
in the bed of his dilapi-
dated pickup, which dated
itself with "Datsun" rather
than "Nissan" on the
tailgate.
Negotiations continued
until the lady behind the
counter, giving up on
logic, walked over to the
fountain drink dispenser
and filled a small plastic
.bag for the old-man. The
fact that the store employ-
ee was wearing no shoes
was not lost on me.
The woman charged
Shorty 50 cenfits for the ice.
Grumbling, he tossed a
dollar bill onto the coun-
ter and told her she might
as well take out the price
of a local newspaper while
she was at it. The line grew
steadily behind me and

one man (a Yankee toQur-
ist) voiced an impatient
complaint.
"Welcome to the moun-
tains," I turned and said.
Fish-wise, that particular
mountain trout trip was
not one of my best. The
rainbows and browns
just didn't cooperate as
..they usually do. But, hey, I
wouldn't take a gold nickel


for it.
After all, all the trout
in the world could never
make up for the time I got
to spend with Mr. Brinley,
Shorty and the Centre,
Alabama Flash.
Hmm. Thinking on that,
I wonder if ol' Shorty ever
bought half a bag of ice
from the Flash's wife at
that country store.

Dear Annie: I am unable to develop
.L feelings of love for my husband of eight
years. In fact, deep inside, I despise him.
This is my second marriage, his fourth.
In our early years together, I began to
notice obvious signs of his having an in-
timate relationship with another woman.
He always refuted this vehemently and
became angry with me for even saying
such a thing. But the evidence I've ac-
cumulated is enough proof for me. I even
saw this woman multiple times, and the
looks she gave me were of the "cat that
ate the canary" variety.
My husband has no idea that I have
evidence, although I am now positive
that he has stopped seeing this woman.
My problem is that my heart has a layer
of cement around it because he has
insulted and disrespected my intel-
ligence by continuing to lie about it. I
cannot trust someone who is unable to
be truthful.
If my husband would only come
forward and admit his guilt, as hard as it
would be, I would be able to go through
the process of forgiving this betrayal. But
he is unwilling. It saddens me that he is
still robbing us both of a better marriage.
Any advice?
HEART OF STONE

Dear Heart of Stone: Your heart isn't
cement. You care a great deal and are try-
ing to protect yourself from the pain of
being hurt. It's possible that your "proof"
doesn't tell the whole story. Your hus-
band may have been less involved than
your evidence would indicate, in which
case, he doesn't believe he has anything
to admit. Please don't play games with
your marriage. If you have proof, show
him. Tell him you are willing to forgive if
he comes clean, and that not discussing
it honestly could destroy your relation-
ship. If this still doesn't help you find the
reassurance you need, please consider
counseling, with or without him.


Dear Annie Yesterday, my wife and I
attended the funeral of a woman who
died as a result of a fire. We were ap-
palled when someone's cellphone began
to ring. Not only did this woman answer
her phone and carry on a conversation
during the service, but when her phone
rang again, she did the same thing.
I think funeral homes or anywhere
such a service is held should post signs
telling attendees to turn off their cell-
phones during visitation hours and for
the duration of the service. If someone
cannot do this, they should not come.
They can send flowers or a condolence
card.
IRRITATED BY
LACK OF THOUGHTFULNESS

Dear Irritated: There is no excuse for
letting one's cellphone disturb a funeral
service (or a wedding, concert, play,
movie or any other such event). But it's
not necessary to stay away entirely. Peo-
ple can put their cellphones on "mute" or
"vibrate" and answer urgent calls out of
the room without disturbing mourners
.and others in attendance. Please, people,
be polite and respectful. You would want
the same courtesy.

Dear Annie: "Second Wife" objected to
her husband keeping photographs of his
late wife in his office. My darling hus-
band's late wife was-a sweet and lovely
woman who died nine years before we
married. Photos of her are all over the
house, and her ashes have a place of
honor on the dining room bookshelf.
I would not dream of asking my hirs-
band to remove these reminders of her.
They were married 13 years. $he was a
dear friend and is the mother of my step-
children. We consider her a beloved fam-
ily member. Jealous of a dead woman? I
thinknot..

Bridge


Soren Kierkegaard said, "I see it all per-
fectly; there are two possible situations -
one can either do this or that. My honest
opinion and my friendly advice is this: do
* it or do not do it-- you will regret both."
How depressing if true. At the bridge ta-
Sble, when you are faced with two choices,
you have to pick one of them or the game
will grind to an unexpected stop! And of-
ten one choice will be successful.
In this deal, South is in three no-trump.
SWest leads a fourth-highest spade seven
and East puts up the queen. Declarer has
two choices win trick one or duck it.
Which should he select?
West's one-spade overcall would not
meet with universal approval, but it is al-
most de rigueur among tournament play-
ers these days. Get into the opponents'
auction, especially if you can bid spades.
Then, they must go up one level to outbid
you in a suit.
South starts with six top tricks: one
spade (given the opening lead), two
hearts, one diamond and two clubs. The
extra tricks can be obtained from the dia-
mond suit. And if that finesse is winning,
declarer will win at least one overtrick.
But what if the finesse is losing?
Then East might return a spade through
South's holding, andWest might cash four
tricks in the suit. To try to .stop that from
happening, declarer should duck the first
trick; let East take it.
East will return his second spade, but

Bieber resumes tour after
scuffle, health problems
LONDON It's been a rough week for Justin
Bieber: Getting booed for being late, struggling to
breathe mid-performance and fainting backstage,
then caught on camera clashing with paparazzi.
But the 19-year-old pop sensation appeared to
have recovered Friday for his final concert in Lon-
don, singing and dancing to thousands of fans at
the 02 Arena. Earlier Friday, the star made head-
lines when he got into an altercation with insult-
hurling paparazzi.
