Police: Man calls in fake murder


Charged with misuse of 911


From staff reports
A Marianna man who called in a false
report of murder on Monday afternoon
has been charged with the misuse of 911.
Jackson County Sheriff Lou Roberts said
William Drew was identified as the caller
shortly after more than a half-dozen
deputies and municipal police officers
responded to the call Drew made on a
cellular phone, reporting that there had
been a murder on Bump Nose Road.
Officers found Drew walking down the
road near his Colonel Road dwelling,
which is also located near Bump Nose
Road.
Roberts said he questioned the 44-year-
old about why he had placed such a call,
and that Drew said he did so because he
"just wanted to talk" to the sheriff.
Roberts went on to say that Drew then


made several comments about various
things including suspicions that Roberts
described as seemingly
irrational.
Drew's home was
searched to ensure that
there was no body or other
evidence of foul play, Rob-
erts said. There was a shot-
Drew gun in the home, and Drew
had two unused shotgun
shells in his pocket when he was located,
but there was no evidence that the gun
had been used in any way near the time
of the report.
Roberts explained why he felt the charge
against Drew was warranted; the call, he
said, had unnecessarily pulled deputies
from other areas where they were needed
to carry out their daily duties to serve and
protect.

Fla. AG hopes to bring



closure to Dozier families

Bondi files petition for the exhtimation of bodies


BY ANGIE COOK
acook@gmail.com

The digging continues into burials
at the now-closed Arthur G. Dozier
School for Boys.
On Tuesday, the office of Florida At-
torney General Pam
Bondi announced that it
had filed a petition to al-
low a Panama City medi-
cal examiner to exhume
human remains from
Dozier's "Boot Hill Cem-
Bondi etery" and surrounding
areas. The former re-
form school sits on state-owned land
in Marianna.
Dr. Michael Hunter, who was


appointed medical examiner for the
state's 14th District in 2008, would be
granted exhumation rights at Dozier
for up to one year, if the court order
sought by the AG's office is granted.
"The deaths that occurred at Doz-
ier School for Boys in Marianna are
cloaked in mystery, and the surviving
family members deserve a thorough
examination of the site," Bondi said in
a press release.
"I am committed to doing everything
within my power to support investiga-
tive efforts to help resolve unanswered
questions and bring closure to the
families who lost loved ones."
In a prepared statement, U.S. Sena-
tor Bill Nelson, D-Fla., commended
Bondi.


A vocal proponent of examina-
tion into abuse allegations involving
Dozier, the senator's office says his in-
volvement was triggered by a letter he
received in October 2012 from a Lake-
land man, who said his uncle died at
the school years ago under mysterious
circumstances.
"This is a critical step forward to bring
closure to the families," Nelson said.
Bondi's petition had been assigned
to Circuit Judge Bill Wright.
The filing contends that burial sites
at the school are in the public interest
and that "it is in the public's interest to
determine how many children are bur-
ied there and who they are."

Man charged

with battery


on law officer
From staff reports

A Mississippi man has been charged
with aggravated battery on a law en-
forcement officer and
other offenses after alleg-
edly driving away from a
traffic stop while an of-
ficer had his hand inside
the vehicle on the passen-
ger side of the red Chev-
Touchard rolet pickup truck he was
operating. The officer was
pulled along for a short distance before
he was able to .free himself. Spinning
his wheel as he pulled away, the driver
continued northbound from the stop
on south Jefferson Street in Marianna,
officials reported. He had driven away
after declining to give officers consent
to search the vehicle, officials reported.
Later identified as 36-year-old Mi-
chael Allen Touchard, the driver then

Pawning

hits sour note
From staff reports
A Marianna man is accused of pawn-
ing some stolen music equipment and
falsely verifying to a pawnbroker that he
owned the items he brought in for sale,
according to count documents filed by
court and law. enforcement officials.
Austin Tyler Gammons, 19, is charged
in the case with dealing in stolen prop-
erty and with false verifi-
cation of ownership.
According to the charg-
ing information that the
state attorney's office
filed with the court, au-
thorities allege that Gam-
Gammons^ mons "did traffic in or en-
deavor to traffic in Vestax
Turntable/Mixer, which was property
(he) knew or should have known was
stolen." The state goes on to allege that
Gammons "did unlawfully and know-
ingly give false verification of ownership
or false or altered identification and did
receive money from a pawnbroker for
goods sold or pledged."
According to the '0i.iirn', complaint,
filed in court, there was a break-in at

nual Jackson County 4-H
Science Fair, held March

hibited by 4-H members
at the science fair. Some
of the topics included: The
effects of light intensity on
photosynthesis and oxy-
gen production in plants,
the life cycle of catfish
and the germs commonly*
found around a house.
Participants were al-
lowed to exhibit one proj-
ect in one of four differ-
ent project categories and
choose their topic. Projects
were judged and awarded
a blue, red 6r white rib-
bon, based on the content
of each individual project.
Exhibitors who chose to
provide an oral explana-
tion of their project were
judged on their presenta-
tion skills and knowledge
of their science project.
Medals were awarded to
the top three presenters
in each category and age
division. UF-IFAS Gradu-
ate Students and Interns
Francine Messias, Vitor

verbally and artistically;
and provide youth with a
positive experience and an
opportunity to feel a sense
of accomplishment.

Red-light cameras


need fine tuning
Like it or not and we like it red-light cameras
are here to stay, at least for the immediate future.
That's the word from Florida Senate President
Dan Gaetz, R-Niceville, who recently told the Sun
Sentinel editorial board that the votes needed to repeal
the use of the controversial cameras are not there this
legislative session.
Again, that's fine with us. Statistics show the cameras
have improved public safety. Like them or not, red-
light cameras are stopping many people from running
red lights.
"Drivers are more careful at all intersections, fear-
ing a camera has been installed," Boynton Beach
Police said in a recent report that showed a 58-percent
decline over the previous year in accidents at four
intersections with red-light cameras.
That said, the system should be tweaked to make the
appeals process more fair. Two bills filed this session
one by Sen. Joe Abruzzo, D-Wellington, and another
by Rep. Frank Artiles, R-Miami would do just that.
Right now, the standard $158 red-light citation be-
comes a $264 fine if not paid within 30 days. The prob-
lem, according to Pinellas County Clerk of the Circuit
Court Ken Burke, is that there is no way for drivers to
challenge the ticket and get through the court system
within 30 days.
Burke wrote a letter to government officials in his
area, citing several flaws in the red-light camera sys-
tem, including the way drivers receive citations, the
increased penalty if the fine is not paid on time, and
tickets being issued to vehicle owners who might not
have been driving when the violation occurred.
There's also a big discrepancy if you have a red-light
ticket issued by a police officer ($260) as opposed to by
a red-light camera ($158). In Palm Beach County, viola-
tors can be fined ag much as $500, plus $106 in manda-
tory court-costs, if they fight the ticket and lose at trial.
Given that red-light cameras have not been popular
with drivers since authorized statewide in July 2010,
flaws like these make public acceptance more difficult,
particularly for people who think the cameras are just a
cash cow for cities.
Without question, the cameras generate revenue.
This year, these fines are expected to generate $120
million for the state and cities, with cities getting $75
from each ticket. Nine Broward cities and six in Palm
Beach County have the cameras, with more on the way.
Fort Lauderdale recently added cameras at six more
intersections, bringing the city's total to 23.
The safety success of the cameras does vary. In Fort
Lauderdale, for example, accidents doubled at inter-
sections with the cameras, while statewide accidents
were less frequent in 41 municipalities with cameras
and more frequent at 11. That's an overall success ratio
of 4:1.
The sample size is big enough to show that the cam-
eras promote public safety. Now, making the appeals
system more fair should be the goal.

Battling over yoga in public schools


Is yoga secular or religious?
That's the conundrum at the
heart of a new legal battle in En-
cinitas, California over the teaching
of yoga in public schools.
In a lawsuit filed last month, a
couple with two children in the
Encinitas schools charge that
the district is unconstitutionally
promoting religion by giving yoga
classes twice a week to students
during the school day.
School officials insist that the
yoga classes are for physical fitness
,- and have nothing to do with reli-
gion or religious indoctrination.
The outcome of the case could
impact hundreds of other public
schools nationwide that incorpo-
rate yoga postures and breathing
exercises into their wellness and
fitness programs.
Because "yoga" is used to describe
a bewildering variety of classes and
programs that dot the American
landscape, from retreat centers and
ashrams to shopping malls and
gyms, it's easy to forget that yoga
originated in ancient India as a
school of Hindu philosophy.
Many yoga practitioners embrace
the religious roots and spiritual
meaning of yoga while many others
view yoga largely as a healthy exer-
cise and stress reduction regimen.
Public schools, of course, adopt
the "healthy exercise" definition
in order to comply with the First
Amendment's prohibition of school
promotion or endorsement of
religion. That's why yoga programs
adopted by schools all claim to be
secular, although they negotiate the
traditional religious framework in a


CharlesHaynes
Inside the First Amendment

variety of ways.
On one end of the spectrum, a
program offered to schools called
"Grounded" retains Sanskrit terms
such as asanas (poses) and doesn't
shy away from referencing the
Chakra System, the "seven major
energy centers in the body" as un-
derstood in many Eastern religious
traditions.
On the other end, Yoga Ed
- which claims to be in 150
schools in 27 states eschews
Sanskrit terms and avoids anything
that could be construed as religious
teaching (meditation, for example,
is "time in".) According to Yoga Ed,
yoga is science, not religion.
Not surprisingly, attempts to
completely secularize yoga have
met with resistance and not just
from Christian parents like those in
Encinitas.
Many Hindus argue that authen-
tic yoga is inseparable from its
philosophical roots in Hinduism.
To underscore this point, the Hindu
American Foundation launched a
"take back yoga" campaign in 2010
to remind people of yoga's Hindu
origins.
Moreover, many yoga practi-
tioners view yoga postures and


breathing exercises as inherently
spiritual, giving spiritual benefits
even to those who practice yoga
solely for health reasons without
any interest in the religious mean-
ing of their practice.
To what extent, if any, yoga
practices can be fully divorced from
religious roots or spiritual efficacy
is a metaphysical and theological
debate that can't be resolved in a
court of law.
What courts can and must do,
however, is determine if a school's
yoga program explicitly conveys
religious teachings or messages.
This means that the more a yoga
program avoids religious language
and metaphysical explanations,
the more likely it is to be upheld as
constitutional.
If the court does uphold yoga
classes in Encinitas (as is likely,)
schools elsewhere will get the mes-
sage that yoga can be sufficiently
secularized to pass constitutional
muster. Parents who object will
have no recourse but to opt their
children out (an option Encinitas
currently offers).
The larger question of whether
yoga practices are inherently spiri-
tual will remain unanswered and
hotly debated.
Is yoga still yoga when stripped of
all religious trappings? That's a re-
ligious issue the First Amendment
can't resolve.

Urge employees to use social media responsibly


G iven that social media are
o pervasive, it would seem
prudent for employers to
have a corporate social media policy
that gives employees guidance for
appropriate online conduct and
protects the company from social
media-related public relations
disasters appearing so often in the
news these days.
Wouldn't it?
Probably not.
The National Labor Relations
Board has come down hard recently
on employers who have terminated
or disciplined employees for what
many of us might think are action-
able offenses. In a 2011 case involv-
ing an American Medical Response
employee terminated for calling her
boss profane names and making
disparaging comments about him
and the company on Facebook, the
NLRB ruled that her firing violated
Section 7 of the National Labor Rela-
tions Act, which gives employees the
right "to engage in other concerted
activities for the purpose of collec-
tive bargaining or other mutual aid
or protection." It was the company's
rule prohibiting employees from
"making disparaging, discrimina-
tory or defamatory comments when
discussing the company or the
employee's superiors, co-workers
and/or competitors" that the NLRB
determined to be overly broad and
therefore unlawful.
General Motors, Target and Costco
also have come under fire recently
for their social media policies. Last
September, the NLRB ruled as over-
broad and unlawful Costco's policy
that employees would be subject
to disciplinary action for electronic
posts that "damage the company,
defame any individual or damage
any person's reputation."
Maybe you're thinking your


company is a nonunion, privately
held small business, so none of this
C applies to you.
Think again.
Labor law experts
are warning that the
'NLRB rulings against
across-the-board
Tom prohibitions may
Wallace be just as applicable
to privately held,
nonunion work-
places. Further, some lawyers are
cautioning companies against hav-
ing any official social media policies
at all. In the February 2013 issue
of HR Magazine, attorney David S.
Rubin maintains that "social media
policies seem to attract trouble that
overshadows the advantages such
policies might provide."
So what's an employer to do?
Rely on your company's general
policies regarding discrimination,
harassment, confidentiality, trade
secrets, etc. While attorneys such
as Rubin maintain that there is no
way of knowing if your policy will be
challenged by the NLRB's general
counsel, there seems to be more
scrutiny devoted to dedicated social
media policies than others. Make
sure your legal counsel and/or hu-
man resources team stays on top
of these issues in case yourpolicies
need changing.
Provide regular training to educate
new hires, and refresh veteran
employees about the company's
policies for discrimination, ha-
rassment and other matters. In
my 30-plus years of running high
growth technology companies,
I've hired hundreds of people and
fired a bunch, too. I've learned that
training is indispensable for instill-
ing your company's culture and
performance expectations in your
team. Just handing new hires the


employee manual and keeping a
signed statement that they read it
on file doesn't.cut it. In my experi-
ence, employees who are formally
trained on the company's policies
and values, who have that learning
regularly reinforced and who live by
those values every day are far more
likely to perform as expected of
them than those not receiving such
training and reinforcement.
Help all of your employees
achieve social media literacy.
Whether you encourage it or not,
your employees are likely going
to access and post to their social
media accounts while at work. So
why not look for ways to maximize
that activity for everyone's benefit?
Linked In, Facebook, Twitter and
YouTube are powerful tools that
can be leveraged to help employees
build personal brands and become
ambassadors for your company.
Offering social media skills train-
ing can be a competitive advan-
tage for a firm looking to attract
and retain top talent and help
level the communications playing
field in a multigenerational office
environment.
Like the other disruptive tech-
nologies that preceded them, social
media bring a new set of chal-
lenges for employers. The solu-
tion, I believe, is not to operate out
of fear and prohibit its use in the
workplace until the legal issues are
sorted out. Employers have much
more to gain by figuring out ways to
embrace this technology's positive
aspects than they do by issuing
prohibitions on its use among their
employees.

CEO says Carnival looking at changes post-Triumph


The Associated Press

MIAMI BEACH Car-
nival Cruise Lines' high-
est priority is to look at
learnings and potential
changes" that can be made
in the wake of the Tri-
umph cruise ship that was
stranded at sea a month
ago, the company's CEO
and president Gerry-Cahill
said Tuesday at the 29th
annual Cruise Shipping
Miami conference.
"I can assure you that
since this fire occurred, it's
been the No. 1 priority for
both Carnival Cruise Lines
and Carnival Corp.," Cahill
said.
Over 4,000 people were
on the Carnival Triumph
when an engine room fire
knocked out, its primary
power source on Feb. 10,.
leaving the crippled ship
adrift. Carnival Cruise
Lines, parlof Miami-based
Carnival Corp., owns both
the Triumph and the Cos-
ta Concordia, which ran
aground off the coast of
Italy a year ago, killing 32
people. Carnival also owns
the Splendor, which was
stranded at sea for several
days in 2010 after a fire.
Cahill was the first of
seven, cruise line execu-
tives who addressed the
industry's concerns and
trends during a "State of.
the Industry" session at
the conference. He said the
company was conducting
a comprehensive review
of the entire fleet that
would "take some time to
complete." The review is
focusing on prevention,

ship and how to utilize
power from an emergency
generator.
Cahill said experts from
fire safety officials to na-
val architects and marine
engineers in several U.S.
locations and in Italy are
assisting in the review.
"You can rest assured,
it's our highest priority. We
will come up with some
solutions that we can im-
plerrient across our fleet,"
he said.
Cahill spoke as part of a
panel and was not avail-


able for questions after.
Carnival declined a request
for an interview with him.
Future trends and glo-
balization were also topics
discussed by the cruise ex-
ecutives, who focused on
looking east to China.
"Chinese customers love
their cruises just like ev-
erybody else does," said
Adam Goldstein, president
and CEO of Royal Carib-
bean International. "The
people in the market. have
the same desires to see the
world that everybody else
has and now have the abil-
ity to do that."
The biggest opportunity
,for cruise lines, he added,
is the millions of people


who "are entering the mid-
dle class" in different parts
of Asia.
The Caribbean is still a
top destination for cruise
travelers, but industry ex-
perts say that may soon
change with major ports
across Asia and Europe
serving as top cruise
destinations.
"I'm not sure that the
Caribbean destinations
truly appreciate the na-
ture of this competition.
on a global basis and how
much else is happening
in the world that is claim-
ing attention of potential
cruisers," Goldstein said.
"That's the competitive
set and the Caribbean and


other regions need to get
at some level responsive to
that."


Industry watchers agree,
saying the Chinese cruise
traveler will change the
way we see cruising today.
"I think it's still five years
away, 10 years away before
the Chinese really start to
love to cruise," said Caro-
lyn Spencer Brown, editor
of the CruiseCritic.com
website.
She noted that prefer-
ences will differ across
cultures as well: "It's excit-
ing but also scary because
because they love casinos
but don't want long, gour-
met dinners," a contrast
with Western cruisers. Chi-
nese cruise travelers are
also showing an interest in
short shore excursions, she
said, but they are not join-
ing sunbathers out on the
sun deck, "which is great
for (other) people who
can't get sun deck chairs
on prime time."
The conference began on
Monday and runs through
Thursday. It's expected to
attract more than 10,000
people in the industry.


Legislators struggle with school safety


The Associated Press

TALIAHASSEE The mass school
shooting in Connecticut led officials
to question if more should be done
to beef up security in Florida's public.
classrooms. Three months later, law-
makers are still grappling with how
to respond, especially since one so-
lution placing a uniformed officer
in every school remains extremely
expensive.
"I don't know if we can have that as
a realistic goal in the state budget,"
said Sen. Bill Galvano, R-Bradenton
and the chairman of the Senate com-
mittee that will draw up the state's
education budget.


Some bills are moving through the
Florida Legislature,. but it's unclear
what will actually pass during the 60-
day annual session.
A Senate panel on Tuesday ap-
proved a measure (SB 514) that would
allow local governments to ask voters
if .they want to pay more money to
help beef up school security and pro-
vide mental health referral services.
The extra money would come from
an increase in local property taxes.
Sen. Eleanor Sobel, D-Hollywood,
said schools used to have resource of-
ficers but that budget cuts in the last
decade have forced many to cut back
on the number of police patrolling
schools. She stressed that it would be


up to individual counties to decide
whether to raise taxes for the effort.
* "It's not a mandate, it's up to vot-
ers," Sobel said.
But while the bill made it through
the Senagte Education Committee
by a 7-1 vote, it was clear that some
Republicans did not-agree with this
approach. They said it would create
an extra layer of government. The
House version of the bill has yet to be
heard.
Most resource officers are stationed
at high schools and middle schools.
Few are in elementary schools such
as the one in Newtown, Conn., where
a shooter killed 20 first-graders and
six adults.

No pope on first vote
of conclave
VATICAN CITY- Black
smoke poured from the
Sistine Chapel chimney
on Tuesday, signaling that
cardinals had failed on
their first vote of the papal
conclave to choose a new
leader for the world's 1.2
billion Catholics.
Surrounded by Michel-
angelo's imposing frescos
imagining the beginning
and the end of the world,
cardinals locked them-
selves into the chapel
following a final appeal for
unity to heal the divisions
that have been exposed
-by Pope Benedict XVI's
shocking resignation and
revelations of corruption
and mismanagement in
the Vatican bureaucracy.
Outside, thousands of
people braved cold night
rain and packed St. Peter's
Square, eyes fixed on the
narrow chimney poking
out of the Sistine Chapel
roof. They were rewarded
some three hours after the
conclave began when thick
black smoke billowed out
of the chimney, signaling
that no pope had been
elected.
The cardinals resume
voting Wednesday
morning.

UK may veto EU arms
embargo on Syria
LONDON Britain
may consider vetoing an
extension of the European
Union's arms embargo on
Syria if the situation does'
not improve there, Prime
Minister David Cameron
said Tuesday.
The EU has a blanket
embargo against ship-
ping arms to Syria, though
last month Britain per-
suaded the EU to soften
the embargo and allow
member states to provide
non-lethal aid, such as
armored vehicles, to the
rebels fighting the regime
of President Bashar Assad.
Britain and France have
signaled their support for
lifting the embargo further
to allow weapons into
Syria. The EU embargo
expires in May.

Erratic North Korea
poses serious threat
WASHINGTON-An
erratic North Korea, with
its nuclear weapons and
increasingly belliger-i
ent tone, poses a serious
threat to the United States
and East Asia nations, the
director of National Intel-
ligence warned Tuesday in
the annual accounting of
the threats worldwide.
In his overview, James R.
Clapper told Congress that
a less decentralized terror-
ist network has significant-
ly altered the threats while
the Arab Spring uprising in
the Middle East and North
Africa has created spikes in
the dangers facing Ameri-
can interests in the regions
The intelligence chief
offered a sober assessment
of threats from potential
cyber attacks, weapons of
mass destruction and the
months-long civil war in
Syria. North Korea, Iran
and Syria stirred the most
concern as the Obama ad-
ministration and Congress
weigh the effectiveness of
sanctions against Pyong-
yang and Tehran.

Rover: Mars could have supported life


The Associated Press

LOS ANGELES -
Drilling into a rock near its
landing spot, the Curiosity
rover has answered a key
question about Mars:
The red planet long ago
harbored some of the
ingredients needed for
primitive life to thrive..
Topping the list is
evidence of water and
basic elements that teeny
organisms could feed on,
scientists said Tuesday.
"We have found a
habitable environment
that is so benign and
supportive of life that
probably if this water was
around and you had been
on the planet, you would
have been able to drink it,"
said chief scientist John
GrotzingeroftheCalifornia
Institute of Technology.
The discovery comes
seven months after
Curiosity touched down
in an ancient crater. Last
month, it flexed its robotic
arm to drill into a fine-
grained, veiny rock and
then tested the powder in
its onboard labs.
Curiosity is the first
spacecraft sent to Mars
that could collect a sample
from deep inside a rock,
and scientist said they
hit pay dirt with that first
rock.
Mars today is a hostile,
frigid desert, constantly


bombarded by radiation.
Previous missions have
found that the planet was
more tropical billions
of years ago. And now
scientists have their first
evidence of a habitable
environment outside of
Earth.
This was an environment
where microbes "could
have lived in and maybe
even prospered in,"
Grotzinger said.
The car-size rover
made a dramatic "seven-
minutes--of- terror"
landing last August near
the planet's equator. As
high-tech as Curiosity is,
it lacks the tools to detect
actual microbes, living
or extinct. It can only
use its chemistry lab to
examine Martian r6cks
to determine the kind of
environment they might
have lived in.
The analysis revealed
the rock that Curiosity
bore into contained a
chemical soup of sulfur,
hydrogen, oxygen,
nitrogen, phosphorus and
simple carbon essential
chemical ingredients for
life. Also present were clay
and sulfate minerals, signs
that the rock formed in a
watery environment.
Rovers Opportunity
and Spirit before it fell
silent also uncovered
evidence of a wet Martian
past elsewhere on the

planet, but scientists think
the water would have been
too acidic for microbes.
The ancient water

GOP budget plan rejected


The Associated Press

WASHINGTON-House
Republicans redoubled
their efforts to roll back
signature accomplish-
ments of President Barack
Obama on Tuesday, of-
fering a slashing budget
plan that would. repeal
new health care subsidies
and cut spending across
a wide swath of programs
dear to Obama and his
Democratic allies.
The GOP plan was im-
mediately rejected by the
White House as an ap-
proach that "just doesn't
add up" and would harm'
America's middle class.
Obama has 'rebuffed
similar plans two years
in a row and ran strongly
against the ideas when
winning re-election last
year when its chief au-
thor, Budget Committee
Chairman Paul Ryan, R-
Wis., was on the Republi-
can ticket.


Ryan's budget illustrates
the stark differences in
the visions of tea party-
backed Republicans and
Obama and his Demo-.
cratic allies about the size
and role of government -
with no obvious avenues
for compromise.
Senate Democrats are
responding with a milder
plan that would repeal
automatic spending cuts
that began to take effect
this month while offer-
ing $100 billion in new
spending for infrastruc-
ture and job training. The
Democratic counter won't
be officially unveiled until
Wednesday, but its rough
outlines: were described
by aides. They spoke only
on condition of andnym-
ity because they weren't
authorized to describe it
publicly.
That plan by Senate
Budget Committee Chair-
man Patty Murray, D-
Wash., would raise taxes


New York fights
The Associated Press

NEW YORK Despite Mayor Michael
Bloomberg's bullishness, political re-
alities and legal questions make for an
uncertain future for one of the premier
pieces of his legacy: a now-blocked ban
on supersized sugary drinks.
The city lost no time Tuesday getting
started on the next round of the fight
after a judge nixed the first-of-its-kind
regulation. Bloomberg called the strong-
ly-worded court ruling a "temporary set-
back" and emphasizing that the city is
confident about winning an appeal. He
predicted that in the meantime, the nov-
el regulation would become a bellwether
in the national fight against obesity.
"I don't think there's any doubt that
momentum is moving in our direction,"
he said.


by almost $1 trillion over
a decade and cut spend-
ing by almost $1 trillion
over the same period. But
more half of the combined
deficit savings would be
used to repeal the auto-
matic, across-the-board
spending cuts that began
to hit the economy earlier
this month and are slated
to continue through the
decade.
All this was in the works
as Obama trekked to
the Capitol to join Sen-
ate Democrats for their
weekly closed-door policy
luncheon as part of his
bipartisan outreach ef-
forts to lawmakers in both
House arid Senate on the
budget. Obama is press-
ing for a "grand bargain"
that would attract more
moderate elements from
both parties even as
this week's competing
budget presentations are
tailored to appeal strictly
along party lines.


soda ban ruling
While the city has ultimately prevailed
in some similar cases, legal experts say
it's unclear how judges will view whether
health regulators overshot their authori-
ty in this one. Moreover, the appeal could
linger beyond Bloomberg's term when it
ends this year, and several of his would-
be successors don't appear to have his
appetite for pursuing it.
State Supreme Court Justice Milton
Tingling's decision, issued Monday, says
that the soda rule has so many exemp-
tions that it's illegally arbitrary and that
the Board of Health trod on the City
Council's turf to impose it.
"This is a serious challenge to the city,"
particularly for saying the health board
violated the separation-of-powers prin-
ciple, said James Fanto, a Brooklyn Law
School professor who specializes in
business law and regulation.


Curiosity has yet to turn
up evidence of complex
carbon compounds,
fundamental to all living
things. Scientists said a
priority is to search for
a place where organic
might be preserved.
The drilled rock isn't far
from Curiosity's landing
spot in Gale Crater; the
rover is ultimately headed
to a mountain in the


crater's middle. Images
from space spied signs of
clay layers at the base of
the mountain a good
spot to hunt for the elusive
organic.
It has been slow going
as engineers learn to
handle the rover, which is
far more tech-savvy than
anything that has landed
before on Earth's planetary
neighbor.

cording to the complaint
that the Marianna Police
Department filed against
Touchard. Officials re-
port that he ignored the
stop signs at the Lafay-
ette and Jackson Street
intersections as he con-
tinued north.
The driver ran another
traffic signal at Jefferson
and Clinton Street inter-
section while travelling
more than 50 mph, ex-
ceeding the speed limit
there, according to the
complaint. As the truck
approached a slower
vehicle traveling in the
same direction in a no-
pass zone, it swerved to
pass and almost side-
swiped the other vehicle,
officials said.
The truck picked up
speed as it continued
north of Jefferson, an
officer reporting that it
reached speeds exceed-
ing 100 mph. Eventually,
the driver braked heavily
and stopped on the side
of Jefferson Street just
past the Chipola River
Bridge, several miles
from the site of the initial
stop.
Touchard was arrested
and officers searched the
vehicle. They report find-
ing a pipe with marijuana
residue, as-well as mari-
juana residue lying in the
driver's seat, according
to the complaint.
In addition to aggra-
vated battery, Touchard
was charged with aggra-
vated fleeing and elud-
ing, and with possession
of less than 20 grams of
marijuana.

STUDENTS HELP HABITAT FOR HUMANITY


Blackburn student Seth Tonsor perched on top of a ladder while working on a section of
wall. Blackburn College students kept an 11-year tradition alive this week when they
trekked from Illinois to Florida to spend their spring break helping Jackson County
Habitat for Humanity build its latest home. The 15 students are members of the campus
Habitat for Humanity group. The volunteer team includes a mixture of first-timers and
returning helpers. With their assistance, the exterior structure of the home should be nearly
completed by Friday. While they will be working hard for four days, the students will be taking
one day off for a trip to the beach. BELOW: Ashlee Shelton from Blackburn College works on a

Lady Indians get second shot at a title


MARK SKINNER/THE FLORIDAN
Chipola's Lashonda Uttleton
shoots for three Saturday against
Gulf Coast.


BY DUSTIN KENT
dkent@jcfloridan.com
The No. 10 Chipola Lady Indi-
ans fell short of achieving one
of their biggest season goals
last weekend in the FCSAA State
Tournament, but they will get
an opportunity to pursue an
even bigger goal next week in
Salina, Kan.
That's because the Lady Indi-
ans (25-6) were awarded one of
four at-large bids to the NJCAA
Women's Basketball National
Championship tournament on
Monday, giving their season
a reprieve after falling to Gulf
Coast State 61-53 in Saturday's
state championship game at
the Milton H. Johnson Health
Center.
While the loss to the Lady
Commodores still stings, an op-
portunity to play for a national
title is pretty nice consolation
for a Chipola team that has bat-


tied adversity all season long.
"We feel good that we get to
play some more basketball. It's
a feather in this program's cap,"
first-year Chipola coach Greg
Franklin said. "When you start
looking at it, we got (the bid)
because of our body of work
and the kids have got to feel
good about that. We didn't win
the tournament, but we did
a great job over the course of
the year to get this and the kids
should be proud of what they
did."
The coach said he was con-
fident that his team would
get an invitation to the na-
tional tournament after its 20-
point semifinal victory over
Panhandle Conference rival
Northwest Florida State, which
also got a bid to the national
tournament. -
That win gave the Lady Indi-
ans 25 total wins for the season

Spooner no-hits Hoboes in 5-1 CHS win


BY DUSTIN KENT
dkent@fcfloridan.com
COTTONDALE Wesley
Spooner tossed a seven-inning
no-hitter Tuesday afternoon to
lift the Cottondale Hornets to
a 5-1 victory over the visiting
Laurel Hill Hoboes.
Spooner walked four and*
struck out 10, with a walk
and an error in the top of the
fourth inning allowing for the
Hoboes' only run of the night.
The Hornets got most of
their offense in a four-run first
inning, with Spooner helping
himself out with an RBI dou-
ble, while Willie Pippin added
an RBI triple.
Both Spooner and Pippin
came around to score on their
hits after throwing errors by
Laurel Hill on the plays.
Cottondale added another
run in the second inning when
Jake Kernoschak drew a one-
out walk, stole second, went
to third on a wild pitch, and
scored on an RBI sacrifice fly
by Ryan Morrissey to make it
5-0.
After Laurel Hill's break-
through in the fourth, Spooner


shut down any notion of a rally
by retiring the final 10 bat-
ters of the game, with three
of the last five coming on
strikeouts.
"Spooner threw really well,"
Hornets coach Greg Ohler said
after the game of his sopho-
more right-hander. "He still
has spots where he throws
more pitches than he needs
to throw, but he got out of the
jams-that he got into."
Mlorrissey led the Hornets of-
fensively, going 2-for-3 with an
RBI, while Spooner and Pippin
each had a hit, an RBI, and a
run, and Thomas Lipford add-
ed a hit and a run.
Austin Baxley walked twice
and scored, and Kernoschak
also walked and scored a run.
With the win the Hornets
improved to 3-5 on the season
and they'll again be at home
today for a makeup game with
Graceville at 3 p.m.
Cottondale will look to im-
prove its district record of 1-3,
but Tuesday's win was more
than welcomed after a tough
week last week that included
losses to Rocky Bayou, Sneads,

and Vernon in a game that
came down to the last at-bat.
"That was a tough week, but
it was good to come out and
get a win to start this week,"
Ohler said. "I hope we can car-
ry over some momentum into
the rest of the week."


and two wins each over the No.
5 Lady Raiders and the No. 7
Lady Commodores.
"I felt like we'd get in (after the
semifinal win) and if we didn't,
it would be a travesty," Franklin
said.
Chipola was awarded a 10-
seed in the expanded 24-team
field and will take on No. 23
seed Southwestern Illinois
(25-5), a who the Lady Indi-
ans will play Monday night at
8:30 p.m.
With a win, Chipola would
advance to Wednesday's sec-
ond round to take on Southern
Idaho (21-11), which has an
opening round bye as a district
champion.
From there, the Lady Indians
would have to win four games
in four days in order to win the
national title.

Black Hawk

BY DUSTIN KENT
dkent@jcfloridan.com

The Chipola Indians swept a
doubleheader with Black Hawk
College on Tuesday evening at
Chipola Field, winning by scores
of 3-0 and 2-1 to run their win
streak to nine games.
Chipola (22-9) won the first
game 3-0 thanks to a dominant
combined pitching performance
by starter Carlos Misell, Thomp-
son Geron, Taylor Lewis, and
Mikel Belcher, with the four al-
lowing just four hits and two
walks in seven innings with nine
strikeouts.
Misell started and went three
inningsand allowed one hit and a
walk with three strikeouts before
giving way to Belcher, who struck
out the side in the fourth, with
Geron then:working two score-
less innings, and Lewis coming
on in the seventh to close it out
by retiring the side in order.
The Indians got their first run
of the game in the bottom of the
second on an RBI single by Josh
Barber to score Ian Rice, and
then added two more in the third
on an RBI triple by Chase Nyman
to score Clayte Rooks and an RBI
double by Cameron Gibson to
score Nyman.
Chipola had seven hits as a
team, with Rooks, Christian Cor-
rea, Rice, and Luis Tunon all hit-
ting safely.
Kyle Manske took the loss for
Black Hawk, going six innings
and allowing three earned runs,
walking three, and striking out
three.
In the nightcap, the Indians
rode a strong pitching perfor-
mance by Alex Bigale out of the
bullpen, with the former Mari-
anna Bulldog going six scoreless
in relief of starter Cole Evans, al-
lowing just four hits and a walk,
and striking out five.

It's a major challenge
for a team that plays just
seven players, several of
whom aren't particularly
close to 100 percent health,
but Franklin said he hopes
that the time off between
the state and national
tournaments will give his
players enough time to re-
charge their battery.
"It will be an issue, but
if we can get our second
wind right here and gather
ourselves, we can go in
and make a run," he said.
"It's one of those things
where we have to be men-
tally, physically, and emo-
tionally tough."

Tuesday off, with practice
set to resume today and

The Lady Indians have
had to deal with injuries
to almost every player in
an already short rotation
this season, and Franklin
said he couldn't be more
pleased with the tough-
ness and resolve his play-
ers have shown all year
by winning in spite of the
adversity.
"I'm very proud of our

all year long," he said.
"They've put up with my
stuff all year in pushing
them and pushing them
when they were tired or
hurt and I'm proud of
them for listening and re-
sponding to me. The fact
is they take a lot of pride
in being Chipola Indians
and that means a lot to
me and the community
and they play that way.
They play an inspired type
of basketball and I hope
our fans are very proud
of them. They should

Florida begins spring amid offensive questions


The Associated Press

GAINESVILLE, Fla. -
Quarterback Jeff Driskel
led Florida to an 11-2 re-
cord in his first season as
a starter.
All people really remem-
ber is his last game: a
stinker against Louisville
in the Sugar Bowl.
So, as Driskel and the
Gators begin spring prac-
tice Wednesday, the focus
is squarely on improving
quarterback play and de-
veloping a more efficient
offense. Florida ranked
103rd in total offense last
season, the worst showing
for any team that made a
Bowl Championship Se-
ries game.
"We've got to be a better
throwing team. and that
starts with him," offensive
coordinator Brent Pease
said Tuesday. "A lot of it
is based around under-
standing the protections
a lot better and when he
has to get rid of the ball
and where he has to see
his reads. Just seeing the
field better as a quarter-
back and seeing what the
coverages are doing and
trying to get the balls to
the guys and schemes
defensively how they're
trying to attack him and
confuse him."
Driskel completed 63.7
percent of his passes for
1,646 yards last season.
He threw 12 touchdown
passes and five intercep-
tions. He also ran for 413
yards and four scores.
He threw game-chang-
ing picks in a 33-23 loss

probably need more of-

seems to be the biggest

from being a legitimate
contender in the South-

"Again, I think the game
continues to slow down

Driskel has no competi-

"Jeff wants to go back

Muschamp said. "But I

The receivers include De-

NBA


Heat streak now 19, top Hawks


The Associated Press

MIAMI Dwyane Wade scored 23
points and the Miami Heat extended
their winning streak to 19 games,
leading wire-to-wire in beating the
Atlanta Hawks 98-81 on Tuesday
night
LeBron James scored 15 and Chris
Bosh and Mario Chalmers added 14
apiece for the Heat, who matched
the fifth-longest streak in NBA histo-
ry. They will try for their 20th straight
win on Wednesday at Philadelphia,
the start of a five-game trip.
Only three teams have won at least
20 consecutive games in the same
season: the 1971-72 Los Angeles Lak-
ers (33), the 2007-08 Houston Rock-
ets (22) and the 1970-71 Milwaukee
Bucks (20). The Washington Capitols
also won 20 straight, spanning the
end of the 1947-48 season and the
start of the 1948-49 campaign.
Josh Smith scored 15 for the Hawks,
who got 12 apiece from Al Horford
and Jeff Teague.
Ray Allen scored 12 and Udonis
Haslem grabbed 11 rebounds for the
Heat, which won easily even with
James who shot 3 for 11 scor-
ing less than 20 points for the sec-
ond straight game. James did fin-
ish with seven rebounds and seven
assists.
The crowd was 20,350, a record at
AmericanAirlines Arena for a regu-
lar-season game. .
Miami has the best overall record
in the NBA and now leads the East-
ern Conference race by 9V2 games
over Indiana and New York, who
were both idle Tuesday. The Heat
(48-14) have 20 games left, while the
Pacers have 19 and the Knicks 21.
It was the first game where the
Heat went without trailing since Feb.
14, when they won at Oklahoma City
in a surprisingly one-sided NBA Fi-
nals rematch. They've needed buzz-
er-beaters and double-overtimes
and big rallies to win several times
since, often against opponents who
won't be headed to the playoffs,
teams like Orlando and Cleveland
and Sacramento.
The Hawks are headed to the post-
season barring a most improbable
collapse, anyway but this one was
never in doubt.
Seven Miami players logged more
than 31/ minutes of time in the first
quarter, all seven of them scored,
and the snowball started rolling.
James was falling down near the 3-

point line on one possession, yet still
had the sense to just tap the ball to
Wade for a layup that gave Miami
an early 17-8 lead. And later, after
Haslem missed inside, he got the re,-
bound and fed Allen for a step-back
corner 3-pointer that swished.
Yes, it's going that well for Miami
right now.
The Hawks closed to 41-40 midway
through the second quarter, the third
- and last time they were within
a point. Miami needed just over two
minutes to score the next 10 points,
the run both starting, and ending
with 3-pointers from Chalmers, and
the margin was 51-40.
As if the Heat needed any more
help late in the first half, the often-
enigmatic Smith gave them a'little
boost.
For no apparent reason, Smith
fouled Bosh with 0.1 seconds left
until intermission doing so about
80 feet from the Heat basket. Miami
was in the bonus, so Bosh took two
free throws, made both, and the
Heat went into the break with a 57-
44 lead.


Hawks legend, broadcaster and
executive DominiqueWilkins simply
shook his head when asked about
the play at halftime.
Miami's lead grew to as much as 22
in the fourth, and the Heat emptied
the bench with 5:58 remaining.
NOTES: Interesting sequence to
end the third quarter: James was
called for goaltending after blocking
a shot by Ivan Johnson. James didn't
like the call replays seemed to sug-
gest the ball was still going up and
if that wasn't enough, he swatted the
ball into the leg of Bosh's wife, Adri-
enne, who was seated courtside. She
was fine. ... The Hawks lost Teague
with 3:08 left in the third quarter
after he turned his left ankle. He re-
turned to the bench later in the pe-
riod after getting re-taped, but did
not return to the game. ... Heat as-
sistant coach David Fizdale shared
a warm embrace with Hawks coach
Larry Drew a few moments before
the game. Fizdale is a former At-
lanta assistant. ... Miami isn't home
again until a March 22 date with
Detroit.

Seminoles head to tourney following 2 best wins


The Associated Press

TALLAHASSEE, Fla.
- Florida State coach
Leonard Hamilton says
his young team is growing
up although he's not sure
they've come far enough
to repeat as Atlantic Coast
Conference tournament
champions.
Victories over Virginia
and North Carolina State
to close out the regular
season guarantee the Sem-
inoles. (17-14, 9-9 ACC) an
eighth consecutive win-
ning campaign and a pos-
sible NIT,berth if they fail
to repeat as ACC champs
this week in Greensboro,
N.C. Florida State had lost
badly at both NC State and
Virginia earlier in the year.
As he prepares for Thurs-
day's 9 p.m. opening round
niatchup against Clem-
son, Hamilton is relieved
his freshman-dominated
lineup came together in
the final week of the sea-
son with arguably their
two most impressive wins
of the year.
"We thought all along
that this team had pretty
good potential," Hamilton
said. "The way we finished
the season gives us a little
momentum and some
confidence."
The late-season emer-
gence of freshman point
guard Devon Bookert has
steadied the Seminoles'

offense which has relied
heavily on veterans Mi-
chael Snaer and Okaro
White all season.
"With the ball being in
Bookert's hands, he's get-
ting more and more com-
fortable," Hamilton said.
"He's a quick thinker."
A self-described "pass-
first point guard, Bookert
joined fello* freshmen
Michael Ojo and Aaron
Thomas in the Seminole
starting lineup that pro-
duced the wins over NC
State and Virginia.
Bookert scored 10 of his
career high 18 pointgin the
final five minutes of last
weekend's 71-67 win over
North Carolina State that
knocked the Wolfpack out
of a first-round bye in the


tournament. The .Alaskan
import (he's from Anchor-
age) leads the Seminoles
in assists, 3-point shooting
percentage and free throw
percentage.
Snaer and White are the
only Seminoles averaging
double figures.
Snaer, a third-team all-
conference pick whose
1,506 points have him 10th


on the school's all-time
scoring list, averaged 14.2
points in his final season
while White averaged 12.2
points and a team leading
6.1 rebounds.
It was a strange campaign
for the Seminoles, who
won their first two and last
two games of the confer-
ence season and stole an-
other handful in between
with help from Snaer, who
hit game-winning baskets
in the final seconds four
times. They haven't won
three straight games since
late December.
Florida State defeated
the Tigers twice during the
season, 71-66 at Clemson
and 70-67 in Tallahassee
on Snaer's 3-point basket
at the buzzer that was pre-
ceded by freshman Devon
Bookert's 3 with 44 seconds
left that tied the score.
"It's very, very tough to
beat a team three times in
one season," White said.
"We need to get focused
and not take anybody
lightly."

Howard leads


Lakers past Magic


The Associated Press

ORLANDO, Fla. -
Dwight Howard scored
a season-high 39 points,
had 16 rebounds and was
sent to the free throw line
39 times by his former
team as the Los Angeles
Lakers beat the Orlando
Magic, 106-97 on Tuesday
night.
The victory came in
Howard's first return to
Orlando since his drama-
filled offseason trade to
the Lakers. He endured a
chorus of boos through-
out, and. tied his own
NBA record for free throw
attempts.
The majority of them
came as the Magic tried
to employ an intentional
foul strategy. It backfired,
though, as the All-Star
center hit on 16 of 20 at-
tempts in the second
half.
The victory was the Lak-
ers' fourth straight.
Jameer Nelson led Or-


lando with 21 points. The
Magic have lost three of
their last four and haven't
won back-to-back games
since December.
After a week of back-
and-forth in the media
following some perceived
negative comments made
about his former team
during a television inter-
view, Howard and Nelson
spoke briefly just after the
final buzzer and shook
hands.
. It was a light moment in
what was mostly a hostile
atmosphere.
Homemade signs jeer-
ing Howard with senti-
ments that said every-
thing from "Coward" to
"Kobe's Kid" were sprin-
kled throughout the Am-
way Center stands.
Boos rained down on
the All-Star center almost
every time he touched the
basketball. They were fol-
lowed by louder cheers
when he missed a free
throw.

Stricker raising profile

in semi-retirement


' teve Stricker is in
semi-retirement
from the PGA Tour,
though it sure doesn't feel
that way to him.
Consider the 48 hours
I since his
runner-up
finish at
Doral.
Stricker
had to film
Doug an Avis
IrgLMson commer-
cial in Los
Angeles
the next day. When he
booked his travel plans,
he wasn't aware the final
round would end an
hour later because of
Daylight Savings Time, so
he missed his flight. Phil
Mickelson offered him a
ride on his plane to San
Diego, and Stricker took
a charter up the coast. He
finally got home to Wis-
consin at 2 a.m. Tuesday,
and then woke up to take
his daughters to school
before heading off to a
meeting with his founda-
tion until the girls got
out of
school.
He chuckled when
talking about a text from
caddie Jimmy Johnson
that said, "What are you
up to?"
"I feel like I'm busier
now than when I played
a regular schedule,"
Stricker said. "But it's all
good. I'm doing a lot of
things around home with
the family, and with what
(wife) Nicki and I are do-
ing with the foundation.
I'll go to the grocery store
with Nicki. And there's
still time to do some fun
things."
Deer hunting is done,
but Stricker was quick
to point out that coyote
season is still open. He's
thinking about driving
down to Chicago one day
this week to watch the
Big 10 men's basketball
tournament.


As for his golf? Not bad
for a part-time player.
In three starts this year,
he has made $1.82 mil-
lion and is No. 4 on the
money list. He has gone
up 10 spots to No. 8 in the
world ranking. Stricker
was the runner-up at
Kapalua and Doral, and
he reached the quarter-
finals of the Match Play
Championship.
He is doing more with
less.
And along the way, his
profile is as high as it has
ever been.
He already was consid-
ered as nice a person as
there is on the PGA Tour,
mainly for his good man-
ners and how he treats
people. His father-in-law,
Dennis Tiziani, summed
it up a few years ago
when he said Stricker was
"as considerate talking to
a big executive on tour as
he was to the guy working
in Aisle 4 at the Home
Depot."
And now he is jokingly
referred to as the part-
time putting guru of Tiger
Woods.
Their meeting Wednes-
day afternoon at Doral
was a planned accident.
Woods had wanted to
play a practice round
with Stricker on the
eve of the tournament,
but Woods didn't arrive
until early afternoon and
couldn't find him. It was
only after Woods played
nine holes and finished
his media duties that he
saw Stricker on the put-
ting
green.
Stricker is humble.
enough not to help un-
less asked. He has given
Woods a few tips over the
years, such as the Presi-
,dents Cup in 2011, and
they often exchange text
messages or chat about
the art of putting. This
was the longest session,
and the most meaningful.

Djokovic, Sharapova win at Indian Wells


The Associated Press

INDIAN WELLS, Ca-
lif. Top-ranked Novak
Djokovic reached the
fourth round at the BNP
Paribas Open on Tuesday
when he beat Grigor Dimi-
trov7-6 (4), 6-1 for his 20th
consecutive victory.
Djokovic trailed 5-3 in
the first set when the 21-
year-old Bulgarian com-
mitted sixdoublefaults, in-
cluding four in one game,
to help the Serb force the
tiebreaker. Djokovic won
it on a backhand error by
the youngest player re-
maining in the draw.
"It was not really a beau-
tiful match to watch,"
Djokovic said. "There were
a lot of unforced errors,
and we both look quite
sluggish on the court."
Dimitrov was bro-
ken twice in the second
set while 'falling to 1-17
against top-10 opponents.
"He did all the work mak-
ing winners and making
unforced errors," Djokov-
ic said. "I just needed to
hang in there and try to be
patient."
Djokovic moves on to
play Sam Querrey, a 7-6
(5), 6-7 (7), 7-5 winner over
Marinko Matosevic.
Djokovic hasn't lost
since Oct. 31, when Quer-
rey beat him at the indoors
Paris Masters.
"He does everything re-
ally well: unbelievable
forehand; unbelievable
backhand, moves around
the court great, returns
great. It's tough to pick on
something," Querrey said.
'I might have to go outside
of my comfort zone a little
bit and do things I don't
like to do, and hopefully it
will pay off for me."
Querrey is poised to take
over as the top-ranked
American in the men's
game albeit not in the
top 10 from Mardy Fish,
who lost 7-6 (4), 7-6 (0)
to No. 8 seed Jo-Wilfried
Tsonga.

Sharapova trailed 2-0
and 3-2 in the first set be-
fore rallying on a cloudless
day in the desert when
temperature reached the

"Just didn't get a good
rhythm on her game from

"Maybe I was going for

than I had to, especially in
the first few games when
you don't know too much

Spring Training


THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
Miami Marlins starting pitcher Ricky Nolasco throws a
pitch during the first inning of an exhibition spring training
baseball game against the New York Mets on Tuesday.


Astros use five


homers to beat


Miami MarIins


The Associated Press

JUPITER, Fla. In his
first start since being
named Miami's opening
day starter, Ricky Nolasco
hardly looked worthy of
the honor.
Carlos Pena and Brett
Wallace hit back-to-back
home runs off Nolasco
in the first inning and the
Houston Astros added
three more long balls in a
9-4 victory over the Miami
Marlins on Tuesday.
Matt Dominguez, Jas6n
Castro and Chris Carter
also homered for the As-
tros, who had 13 hits.
Castro went 3 for 3 with a
double.
Nolasco gave up seven
runs, eight hits and four
homers in three innings.
He walked two and struck
out four.
"Batting practice is
over," Nolasco said. "I just
couldn't command the
ball anywhere. I was all
over the place."
During a pitching
change against the New
York Mets five days earli-
er, Nolasco was informed
by manager Mike Red-
mond that he would be
the team's opening day
starter.
Redmond said Nolasco's
latest outing did not affect
the right-hander's status.
"It wasn't pretty but I
guess he got his pitches
in," Redmond said. "He
was out of whack. His
tempo wasn't very good.
And these guys came out
swinging."'
Nolasco continued to
work on locating first-
pitch fastballs despite
Houston's aggressive
approach.
"We're here to get our
pitch count up and stay
healthy," Nolasco said. "I
probably averaged two
pitches per batter because
they were just hacking.
(In season) if I see a team
come out hacking like
that in the first inning,
I'm going to start throw-
ing a lot of off-speed first
pitch."
Bud Norris allowed four
runs and seven hits in
3 2-3 innings. He struck
out one and yielded
a home run to Kevin
Kouzmanoff.
"For me, it's always
about the two-seam and
changeup," Norris said.
"Trying to get some mo-
tion while pitching out
of the stretch was impor-
tant, as well."
Norris or Lucas Harrell
figures to be Houston's
opening day starter.
"It would be a great
honor," Norris said. "Ob-
viously, Lukes and I are
backing each other. I'm
cheering him on, he's
cheering me on. We'll see
what happens."
Houston's Phil Hum-
ber gave up one hit and
struck out three while
pitching the final five in-
nings to lower his spring
ERA to 1.29.
Dominguez's two-run
homer in the second hit
the roof of the Marlins'
two-story office building
in left. The former Mar-
lins minor league gave
Houston a 5-0 lead.
"There was some wind


today, so that might have
helped it," Dominguez
said. "It's definitely nice
to do it to a former team."
Kouzmanoff's two-run
homer highlighted Mi-
ami's four-run third.

Yankees 3, Rays 1
PORT CHARLOTTE, Fla.
Ivan Nova is more con-
cerned with showing im-
provement than where he
stands in his bid to be the
New York Yankees' fifth
starter.
The right-hander con-
tinued to make a case to
begin the season in the
rotation by pitching four
scoreless innings Tuesday
during a 3-1 victory over
the Tampa Bay Rays;
"I'm not thinking about
if I'm doing enough. I just
know that I'm doing my
job and pitching well,"
Nova said after yielding
four hits, walking none
and striking out two in his
third exhibition start. He's
allowed one run and eight
hits over nine innings this
spring.
Nova is trying to make
the rotation after falter-
ing down the stretch last
season, when he finished
12-8 with a 5.02 ERA last
'year down from. 16-
4 the year before. His
main competition is Da-
vid Phelps, a 26-year-old
right-hander who went 4-
4 as a rookie last year, and
has given up one run in
14 innings over four starts
this spring.
Manager Joe Girardi
said the best thing Nova
did Tuesday was work
through a potentially
troublesome fourth in-
ping after the Rays put
runners at first and third
with no outs.
"Those are things you
need to be able to do to
be a successful pitcher,"
Girardi said.
The Yankees scored
three runs in the eighth,
two of them on Bobby
Wilson's pinch-hit single.
Mike Fontehot drove in
Tampa Bay's run with an
eighthninning sacrifice
fly.
On a day the Rays se-
lected AL Cy Young Award
winner David Price as
their opening day starter,
right-hander Alex Cobb
built on a solid spring
showing by working five
scoreless innings.

Dominican Republic rallies past Italy


The Associated Press
MIAMI Robinson
Cano pumped his fist. Jose
Reyes and Hanley Ramirez
danced together near
home plate. Fernando
Rodney pointed to the sky
after the final out.
The Dominican Repub-
lic is unbeaten and having
fun in the World Baseball
Classic.
Nelson Cruz's two-out,
RBI single broke a sev-
enth-inning tie, and the
Dominicans overcame
an early four-run deficit
Tuesday to beat Italy 5-4.
Cano had three hits, in-
cluding his second home
run in the WBC. He led
a comeback that had his
teammates laughing and
celebrating every hit in
front of their dugout.
"That's something
you never see in the big
leagues," Cano said. "Here
we get a chance to come
out and give high-fives
to the guys. We can jump
around. Nobody sees you
trying to show somebody
up. It's more about the
chemistry on the team.
We're all excited to be here,
and we've all got a mission
to win."
Italy hitting coach Mike
Piazza said his team.
noted the Dominicans'
demeanor.
"Some enhanced the-
atrics," Piazza said. "It's
not what we're used to,
but hey, you have to go to
with it and have fun. It's
unorthodox for me. Obvi-
ously in a 162-game sea-
son you're not going to be
seeing that, so you have
to just let it roll off your
back."

Dominican Republic's Jose Reyes (7) is congratulated by teammate Hanley Ramirez after

Miami New Times


rejects MLB request


The Associated Press

MIAMI The Miami
New Times has rejected a
request from Major League
Baseball for ,records that
the alternative newspaper
obtained for a story that
alleges several players re-
ceived performance-en-
hancing drugs from a now-
closed anti-aging clinic.
New Times editor Chuck
Strouse's response to MLB
commissioner Bud Selig
appeared on the paper's
website Tuesday (http://
bit.ly/W7VCzk).
Strouse cited journalis-
tic ethics and the fact that
the newspaper has already
posted dozens of records
on its website, omitting
personal information of
people who weren't in-
volved in any wrongdoing.
The newspaper reported
in January that six profes-
sional baseball players,
including Yankees slugger
Alex Rodriguez, bought
humaq growth hormone
and other PEDs during
2009-12 from Biogenesis of
America LLC. The defunct
anti-aging clinic in Coral
Cables was operated by
Anthony Bosch. Rodriguez
has denied the allegations.
The story was based on
clinic records, many with


handwritten notations,
that the New Times said it
obtained.
Strouse confirmed his re-
sponse by phone Tuesday
night.
MLB spokesman Pat
Courtney said, "While we
appreciate the New Times
consideration, we have
been proceeding with our
investigation as if we were
not going to be getting
documents from them."


the other group, which in-
cludes the United States,
Dominican Republic, Puerto
Rico and -Italy. The Nether-
lands will meet the group
winner.
Japan, with no players from
major league rosters, is 5-1 as
it bids for a third straight WBC
title.
"Getting eight runs like that
early was huge," Japan manag-
er KojiYamamoto said. "It was
good to see Abe hitting like
that because we rely on him in
big games."
The Netherlands' Andrelton
Simmons led off the game with
a home run on Kenji Otonari's
second pitch, but Abe hom-
ered off.David Bergman lead-
ing off the second.
Nobuhiro Matsuda's RBI
single and Chono's three-run
double gave Japan a 5-1 lead,
and Abe hit a three-run homer


off Jonatan Isenia.
"It's been a while since I hit
two in one inning," said Abe,
Japan's captain. "We had a lot
of support from our fans here
and now we're going over there
to win it all."
Otonari, the winner, struck
out six in three innings and
allowed one run and one hit.
Bergman, the loser, gave up
seven runs and four hits in 1
2-3 innings.
The Dutch closed in the sev-
enth against Masahiko Morifu-
ku on Xander Bogaerts' RBI
single and Randolph Oduber's
sacrifice fly, then pulled to 8-6
in the eighth on Curt Smith's
run-scoring grounder and Ka-
liin Sams' two-out, RBI single
off Tetsuya Yamaguchi, and
Quintin De Cuba's run-scoring
single against Hideaki Wakui.
With runners at the corners,
Wakui struck out Oduber.

Dear Annie: My husband has a frequent
customer card for a local restaurant. Over
time, he accumulated a credit of $40.
We recently went to this restaurant with
another couple. When the bill arrived,
my husband took out his card and told
the other couple they owed half of the.
bill, including the tip, and that he would
apply his $40 credit to the remainder.
I was uncomfortable with this. What do
you think?
EMBARRASSED

Dear Embarrassed: If the other couple
were close friends or family members,
they might not have cared about this.
However, a less familiar set of friends
might have found it a bit gauche for your
husband to flaunt that his bill was going
to be $40 less than theirs. So, yes, we
agree it would have been better to use
the credit when you were alone, unless
he intended to use it to treat his friends.


Horoscope
PISCES (Feb. 20-March
20) -You are presently in
a positive cycle in terms of
your financial affairs.
ARIES (March 21-April
19) One of the best ways
to get your co-workers'
cooperation is to make
sure that what's good for
you can be great for them
as well. It's one of the keys
to success.
TAURUS (April 20-May
20) Rather than vying
for center stage, keep a low
profile, especially if you've
been given a key role to
play.
GEMINI (May 21-June
20) If you want some
interesting things to occur
in your social life, you can't
wait for the right people to
come to you.
CANCER (June 21-July
22) One of the best ways
to deal with a competitive
situation is to take more
positive action than your
adversaries do.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)
Examine all new
endeavors not merely for
what they can do for you
immediately, but how they
can enhance your future.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept.
22) Sometimes we find
ourselves in the excellent
position of being able to
reap a harvest from seeds
we haven't sown. This
might be your scenario
today.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23)
Snap judgments you
arrive at might not be as
perceptive as those of your
mate's.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov.
22) Thp amount of zeal
you display while work- t
ing on a job is likely to set
the tone that others will
follow.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-
Dec. 21) -You are likely
to have more fun and feel
more comfortable in a
small gathering than in a
large group.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan.
19) If your primary goal
is to amply provide for
those you love, you'll make
sure that this objective is
met.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb.
19) -You should pay
-attention to intuition that
tells you the proper course
of action to take. Any
afterthoughts will be less
accurate.


Dear Annie: "Feeling the Void" says
women don't understand how sex makes
a man feel loved and that men feel in-
complete without it. Well, knowing I can-
not make love to my husband is pretty
devastating, too.
The aging process has meant that sex
is no longer pleasurable. Instead, it is
horribly painful. Lubricants do not work.
Taking hormones brings back cramps
and menstruation. I was willing to try,
but hormones also brought back my
uterine fibroids, and I'd rather not have a
hysterectomy if I don't have to.
Why can't we just grow old? If all we
did was dwell on our sex life, we would
be constantly upset. My husband and
I understand this. We hug and kiss and
appreciate each other. There is no void
wvhen you love deeply and accept the
changes that growing old brings. I am
blessed to be with a man who gets that.
STILL FEELING LOVED


Bridge


A bridge declarer should have three hats:
one for counting his losers, one for counting
his winners, and one for watching his entries
- our theme this week. In today's deal, how
would a milliner play in three no-trump after
West leads the spade queen?
-The South hand has only 21 high-card
points, but it is strong enough to open two
clubs instead of two no-trump. Count two for
an ace and one for a king. A typical two-no-
trump opening totals seven. This hand tallies
to nine. Upgrade when you have a lot of aces
and kings.
North is nearly worth a slam-invitational
rebid of four no-trump, but not quite. With no
five-card suit or 4-4 fit, you normally need a
combined 33 points for six no-trump.
South starts with seven top tricks: two
spades, two hearts, two diamonds and one
club. He would hope to get a third diamond
trick, assuming the missing cards split 3-2. But
declarer would still need another winner. It is
much simpler to take three club tricks. How-
ever, South must be careful both not to block
the suit and to have a dummy entry available
after driving out the club king.
Declarer must take the first trick in his hand
with the spade king, cash the club ace, and
play another club and keep leading that suit
until West takes his king. With the spade ace
still on the board, the contract is guaranteed.

Floyd sits out Florida's Pro Day with ankle injury


The Associated Press

GAINESVILLE, Fla. De-
fensive tackle Sharrif Floyd
got measured, met with
some scouts and then left
Florida Field.
The rest of his work-
out will happen in 10
days.
Florida's top draft pros-
pect missed the majority
of the school's Pro Day on
Tuesday. Widely consid-
ered a top-five pick, Floyd
skipped the on-field ses-
sion because of an ankle
injury. He has a private
workout planned for NFL
teams on March 22.
Without Floyd, safety
Matt Elam, linebacker Jon
Bostic and tight end Jor-
dan Reed were the biggest
draws for scouts, general
managers and head coach-
es on a rainy day in Gaines-
ville. Elam, Bostic and Reed
are the only other Florida
players considered early-
round picks heading into
next month's draft.
Running back Mike Gil-
lislee, linebacker Jelani
Jenkins, safety Josh Evans,
offensive lineman Xavier
Nixon, defensive tackle
Omar Hunter, and receiv-
ers Omaritis Hines and
Frankie Hammond Jr. also
worked out.
Representatives from all
32 NFL teams, including
Pittsburgh Steelers coach
Mike Tomlin and Jackson-
ville Jaguars coach Gus
Bradley, were in atten-
dance. Those two teams


The Associated Press

Linebacker Dannell
Ellerbe parlayed Super
Bowl success into a' big
payday, agreeing to a $35
million, five-year deal with
the Miami Dolphins, a per-
son with knowledge of the
contract said Tuesday.
The person confirmed
the agreement to The As-
sociated Press on condi-
tion of anonymity be-
cause no deal had been
announced.
Ellerbe, 27, had a career-

also had the only general
managers in attendance,
Kevin Colbert of the Steel-
ers and Dave Caldwell of
the Jaguars.
"That's how a Pro Day is
supposed to look at Flori-
da," Gators coachWill Mus-
champ said. "All 32 teams
are here, and that's how it
ought to be. If we continue
to do a good job evaluating,
recruiting and developing
our players, which we will,
our Pro Days will continue
to look that way."
Elam and Reed skipped
the 40-yard dash. Elam
decided to rely on his time
for the NFL combine, and
Reed is recovering from a
bruised bone in his knee.
Reed, Nixon (shoulder)
and defensive end Leren-
tee McCray (shoulder) are


scheduled to join Floyd at
the private workout in two
weeks.
Jenkins may have had the
most to prove Tuesday.
He left school after his ju-
nior season despite missing
the Sugar Bowl because of
a broken bdne in his right
foot, an injury that left him
limited at the cpmbine.
"I think today was just to
prove that I'm still able to
run around," said Jenkins,
who added he has private
workouts scheduled with
the Kansas City Chiefs, Mi-
ami Dolphins and Carolina
Panthers. "A lot of people
were concerned about how
he's going to come back
after the injury, but I think
that's one of the things I
proved today. Everything
we did out here was still


football related, still the
same thing I did when I
was playing at Florida."
It's unclear how high Jen-
kins will get drafted.
Elam, Bostic and Reed,
however, are expected to
be taken by the end of the
third round.
All three enjoyed produc-
tive careers at Florida.
Elam had 176 tackles, 23
V2 tackles for loss, 13 pass
breakups and six intercep-
tions in three seasons. He
used Pro Day to show his
versatility.
"They see a lot of film of
me playing nickel against
a slot receiver," Elam said.
"There's not a lot of me
playing in the back end at
middle safety and opening
up my hips and showing
them how fluid I am and


high 4V2 sacks last year
for the Super Bowl cham-
pion Baltimore Ravens. He
started seven games and
established career highs in
tackles (89, second on the
team) and solo tackles (66).
He missed three games
with an ankle injury.
With dreadlocks fly-
ing, Ellerbe proved to be
a huge presence in the
middle of the Baltimore
defense, even after mid-
dle linebacker Ray Lewis
returned from a torn
triceps.


Ellerbe had eight solo
tackles in the Ravens'
opening playoff win over
Indianapolis, and followed
with nine solo tackles
against Denver. He had
five tackles and his first ca-
reer postseason intercep-
tion in Baltimore's victory
over New England in the
AFC title game.
With Lewis retiring, the
Ravens hoped to sign
Ellerbe to a long-term
deal. But he proved to be
too expensive for the Su-
per Bowl champions, who


faced tough salary-cap
decisions.
Ellerbe signed as a rook-
ie free agent out of Georgia
in 2009 and has 14 career
starts in four NFL seasons.
He gives the Dolphins
more youth at, the posi-
tion, leaving the status of
nine-year veteran Karlos
Dansby in doubt.
Miami was expected to
be active in free agency
after a fourth consecu-
tive losing season, in-
cluding a 7-9 record in
2012.


my versatility. I didn't get
the chance to do that at the
combine."
Bostic, who started 32
games,in four seasons, ran
the 40 in 4.61 seconds at
the combine.
"A lot of eyes were
opened at the combine,"
said Bostic, who said he
improved his time to 4.5
seconds Tuesday. "People
didn't expect me to run as
fast as I did and be as agile
as I was. ... The main thing
with me was a lot of people
wanted to see if I could run.
Their prediction for me
was 4.8, so that was kinda
funny."
Reed, who led the team
with 45 catches for 559
yards and three touch-
downs last season, will get
his chance to run in two
weeks. Still, he performed
individual drills Tuesday.
"I wasn't going to do any-
thing," Reed said. "Once
I got started going hard, I
didn't think about (the in-
jury) anymore. That's kind


of what happened."
Floyd did even less. He
didn't even walk on the
field to mingle with team-
mates and NFL team per-
sonnel. Nonetheless, his
stock has been on the rise
the last two months, and
Muschamp believes he
knows why.
"The guy can anchor.
He can play the run. He's
got great initial quickness.
He can rush the passer,"
Muschamp said. "He's ev-
erything you want for an
inside player. ... From a
general manager's prospec-
tive, talking to his owner
and talking about spending
money on a player, a clean
player that's got no issues
off the field, you know
that's a very smart pick in
'my opinion because you've
got a guy that can be a very
dominating player that's
got so many positive things
surrounding him and he's
been: exposed to so many
different things within our
scheme."

Gonzalez back to Falcons;


Fitzpatrick cut by Bills


The Associated Press

Ryan Fitzpatrick is out
at Buffalo and Paul Kru-
ger is in with the Browns
in the first major moves
as NFL free agency began
Tuesday.
The Bills' starting quar-
terback was cut ,1/ years
after getting a six-year,
$59 million contract
extension. Fitzpatrick
struggled after signing
the new deal, and the Bills
went 6-10 in 2011 and in
2012.
Buffalo has not made
the playoffs since 1999,
the longest active streak
in the NFL. For now, the
Bills' No. 1 quarterback is
Tarvaris Jackson.
Bills general manager
Buddy Nix said, "difficult
decisions often have to be
made and so we are mov-
ing forward. Our focus re-
mains on adding another
quarterback to our ros-
ter and we will continue
to explore every option
available to us."
Kruger helped the Ra-
vens win the Super Bowl,
leading the team with
nine sacks. The outside
linebacker added 2% in
the postseason.
But he was too expen-
sive for Baltimore to
keep and Kruger moves
north in the AFC North to
Cleveland, which needs
help everywhere. He got
a five-year deal for $40
million.
The Ravens also made
Official their trade of re-


ceiver Anquan Boldin,
another playoff and Su-
per Bowl standout, to
San Francisco for a sixth-
round draft pick.
Earlier, Tony Gonzalez
changed his mind and
decided to return to the
Falcons.
The NFL's career leader
among tight ends with
1,242 receptions and 103
touchdowns said he was
95 percent certain he
would retire after 2012,
but the other 5 percent
won out.
Hours before free agen-
cy began Thursday, Gon-
zalez tweeted:
"The lure of being on
such a great team and
organization, along with
unbelievable fan support
was too good to pass up,"
Gonzalez tweeted.

Also Thursday:

-Philadelphia released
cornerback Nnamdi Aso-
mugha, who two years ago
got a five-year, $60 mil-
lion contract, $24 million
guaranteed, when he left
Oakland as a free agent.
Asomugha was a flop in
Philly, often victimized in
single coverage.
Asomugha was sched-
uled to make S15 million
next season, with $4 mil-
lion guaranteed.
-Defensive end Will
Smith and linebacker
Jonathan Vilma, both
implicated in the Saints'
bounty scandal, agreed


to restructure their con-
tracts to remain with New
Orleans.
The 31-year-old Smith
and 30-year-old Vilma,
both veteran defensive
captains, would have tak-
en up about $23 million
combined in salary cap
space without the redone
deals.
-Minnesota finalized
the trade of receiver Percy
Harvin to Seattle, released
14-year veteran corner-
back Antoine Winfield
and re-signed right tackle
Phil Loadholt. The Se-
ahawks are sending their
first-round and seventh-
round draft picks this year
plus their third-round
selection in 2014 for
Harvin.
