Riding in the rodeo


15-year-old juggles being a barrel racer, honor student


BY DEBORAH BUCKHALTER
dbuckhalter@jcfloridan.com
B ascom-area resident Chelsea
Edenfield is the 15-year-old
daughter of a former rodeo
cowgirl, and she's putting her moth-
er's advice and training to good use
- Chelsea's been making her own
name on the rodeo circuit since she
was 4 years old.
The teenager took her first horse
ride in a saddle with her mom when
she was just a few months old. She
was riding horses by herself at the
age of 2 with an adult on lead rope,


according to her mother, Deborah
Edenfield. When Chelsea was four,
she won a saddle club trophy with
her first pony, Cheyenne.
Developing quickly into a barrel
racer to be reckoned with, she has
already won two saddles a top
prize along with five breast col-
lars for her horse, numerous halters,
eight buckles, a trophy or two, a
saddle pad, two saddle blankets, a
headstall and dozens of ribbons in
competitions held at Bar R in Mari-
ann'a, the Florida Panhandle Saddle
Club in Blountstown and other
locations around the southeast


associated with the National Barrel
Horse Association. Over the years
she's won about $5,000, starting her
competition in her toddler years.
Her devotion to the rodeo and her
horses means she lives by a de-
manding schedule. She gets up early
to feed her horses; she has seven,
four of which are consistent com-
petitors. After putting in a day of
study at Malone High School, she's
back home training and tending
to the horses most days until after
dark, finishing up her chores under

"This is something I wanted to do,
because, in my job, I didn't always

feel more like 'll be doing that."

Jackson County native deploying to Afghanistan


Malone


High grad


deploying to


Afghanistan

BY DEBORAH BUCKHALTER
dbuckhalter@jcfloridan.com
Malone High School graduate
Lenoris Dixon was surround-
ed by friends and family
Saturday night as his loved ones gath-
ered at the Malone Joy Club to give the
young Navy man a send-off party. The
Yeoman 2nd Class/petty
officer is deploying to
Afghanistan. He leaves
Monday.
He graduated high
school in 2005, earned
an AA degree and the
Dixon "Mr. Chipola" home-
coming title at Chipola
College in 2007, and worked as a
correctional officer at the Graceville
Correctional Facility for two years
before joining the military in 2009. le
said that delay was by design in his
life-plan.
"I knew fairly early on that I wanted
to be in the military, but I also wanted
to get a start on my education, so I
gave myself a little time," Dixon said. "I
didn't want to get sidetracked from that
because I knew I needed it to ensure
that my future is better. Once I worked
in corrections, to me, that was some-
thing like a military way of life and I felt
like I was ready to move on to that."
Dixon said his older brother, Chris
Joiner, inspired him toward the goals
he set for himself. "He was like a dad
to me," Dixon.explained. "I saw him
go through all steps for military, but
ultimately he stepped back because
he was concerned for us'- his siblings
he didn't want to leave us at that
time."
Dixon said his brother wasn't the only
positive influence in his world. Itr. so
true what they say, that it takes a .. i-i .
to raise a child," he explained. "A lot of
people had a hand in my life." Among
his strongest influences were his other
brothers, Quinton Dixon and Jaymison
Blount; his sisters, LaQuinta Dixon,
Angelica Livingston and Dwanni:e Huff;

Confidence and humility in equal measure


Over the years we have ex-
pressed the importance of
encouraging others; espe-
cially our young people. When we
look at the amount of young folks
who drop out of school and choose
to spend time trying to make quick
money instead of putting in an
honest effort to obtain their goals,
it could be that no one gave them
the boost that encouraging words
can give.
Low self esteem causes many
people to live a negative lifestyle.
Have you noticed that the majority
of the people we view in the field of
entertainment, sports and politics
seem to carry a certain swagger
that displays self confidence in
themselves and what they do in
their field? In some cases it might
be just an act, but it seems that the
swagger comes with the territory.
In today's world so much


emphasis has been put on who's
number one or the best, that many
...- .y feel that having an ag-
gressive attitude is the
way to go after their
goals. There are situa-
tions where someone
we've known to be
humble and kind

so much that their
whole personality is different, and
usually not better.
Often people who work hard to
accomplish certain goals in their
lives tend to develop a self pride
that at times can lead to arrogance.
Individuals who have too much
pride and carry a 'me first' attitude
often end up with a lack of
true friends and living miserable
lives. Self confidence when used

properly can be a strong ally as
we go after major goals in life. Two
of the best things parents can try
to instill into a child's life are these:
To have a strong belief in God,
and also develop strong confidence
in themselves.
In some families, negative
expressions thrive. Calling others
degrading names, cursing and a
lack of positive activities lead to
a disrespectful-atmosphere. No
wonder so many children coming
up in such an environment lack self
confidence.
With all the boastfulness and
bragging our young people observe
on television, through magazines
and the lyrics in music, parents and
guardians must teach our children
early in their lives the importance
of believing in God and themselves,
and the importance of being confi-
dent, but with humility.

4A SUNDAY, MARCH 17,2013


's true. The real
St. Patrick was
born in Britain
around 390
to an aristo-
cratic Christian
family with a
townhouse. a
country villa and
slaves. What's
more. Patrick
professed no
interest in
Christianity as a
young boy.


At 16. Patrick's
world turned: He
was kidnapped
and sent
overseas to tend
sheep as a slave
in the chilly.
mountainous
countryside of
Ireland for seven
years.


According
to folklore, a
voice came to
Patrick in his
dreams, telling
him to escape.
He found
passage on a
pirate ship back
to Britain. The
voice then told
him to go back
to Ireland.


While convert-
ing people to.
Christianity in
Ireland, Patrick
was constantly
beaten by
thugs, harassed
by Irish royalty
and admonished
by his British su-
periors. He died
on March 17,461,
and was largely
forgotten.


According to
lore, Patrick
used the three
leaves of a
shamrock to
explain the
Christian holy
trinity. He also
is said to have
banished snakes
from Ireland
after they
attacked him
during a fast...


... Except that
never happened.
Ireland doesn't
have native
snakes. If it ever
did, they prob-
ably were killed
off by the most
recent ice age.
The myth likely
comes from
their historical
association with
evil.

Was held in Ireland? Nope. Until the '70s, St. Patrick's

Trees benefit from fertilization in early spring


BY ROB TRAWICK
Extension Horticuturist
University of Florida JFAS

March is an excellent
time to fertilize trees.
Most trees are just be-
ginning to enter a growth
phase or they will with-
in a few weeks. Fertilizing
this month provides them
with nutrients just when
they can use them most
effectively.
Most of us tend to take
the trees in our landscapes
for granted. Lavishing at-
tention on our lawns,
shrubs and flower beds,
we forget trees are grow-
ing, living plants, too.
Trees require some of
the same care as our lawns
and other plants, so don't
overlook the benefits of
fertilizing trees.
Trees growing in an ur-
ban landscape are more
likely to need fertilization
than those growing in a
more natural habitat
In the wild, leaves decay
in place under the trees
that dropped them, recy-
cling back to the tree the
nutrients contained in fall-
en leaves. When we rake up
and dispose of fallen leaves
to keep our yards neat and
lawns healthy, we deprive
trees of the nutrients they
contain.
In addition, urban trees
can face lower fertility
levels because of topsoil
removal during initial con-
struction, soil compaction,
paved areas and competi-
tion from other landscape
plants.
Fertilization can be ef-
fective in helping trees in a
number of ways.
In the first five to 10
years after planting, young
shade trees can be encour-
aged to grow more rapidly
with annual, moderate
fertilization.
Keep in mind, however,
that naturally fast-grow-
ing trees such as lacebark
elm, swamp red maple,
tulip poplar, sycamore
and green ash need less


fertilizer to achieve the
desired fast growth rate.
Indeed, excessive fertiliza-
tion may result in an un-
desirable weaker branch
structure on these trees.
Newly planted trees
should be fertilized lightly
or not at all in the first year
after planting to avoid
stimulating excessive veg-
etative growth before the
tree has a chance to estab-
lish a strong root system.
Proper fertilization also
helps to maintain the ex-
isting growth, health and
vigor of more mature trees.
Trees provided with proper
nutrient levels are better
able to deal with adver-
sities such as insect and
disease problems-or urban
stress.
Mature shade trees gen-
erally do not need to be
fertilized annually. For
them, fertilizer applica-
tions made no more often
than every three years are
usually adequate.
When trees are damaged
or in decline, fertiliza-
tion, along with cultural
practices, can be an im-
portant part of a recovery
program.
Trees often are injured
by construction'or filling,


which damages their root
system. Physical injury to
the upper part of the tree
also can occur from prun-
ing, lightning, squirrels
and lawn-maintenance
equipment.
By increasing a tree's vig-
or, fertilization can speed
healing and help them
recover.
If you're not sure if you
should fertilize, you can
determine the need for
fertilization of healthy,
mature trees by observ-
ing the amount of growth
they make in spring. If
more than 6 inches of new
growth is apparent, fertil-
ization is not needed. If
growth is between 2 inches
and 6 inches, you may con-
sider fertilizing, and fertil-
ization is recommended
if a mature tree has less
than 2 inches of new twig
growth.
Also, look at the foliage
of a tree. If it's abnormally
small, pale or yellowish,
a lack of nutrients could
be to blame. Premature
fall color and leaf drop
in deciduous trees also
can indicate a need for
fertilization.
Check the pH (soil acid-
ity or alkalinity) and

nutrient levels of the soil
by having it tested. You can
have this done through the
University of Florida IFAS
extension office. The test
can determine if there is a
problem with pH or a lack
of important nutrients.
The lack of fertilizer isn't
always the cause of the
problem, however.
Poor color and growth
also occur because of re-
cent transplanting, ap-
plication of excessive fill,
construction, poor drain-
age, root diseases, insect
or disease damage to
the foliage, herbicide in-
jury or mechanical dam-
age -, particularly to the
base of young trees from
lawn mowers and string
trimmers.
Even when the need for
fertilization isn't the cause
of the problem, proper
fertilization can help trees
recover from some prob-
lems if the cause also is
corrected.
You can fertilize trees
many different ways, and
you can use a variety of
products. Read the label
directions carefully and
follow them precisely
when using any product to
fertilize your trees.
Young trees can be fertil-
ized by simply scattering
fertilizeraroundthem.Even
larger trees canbe fertilized
effectively by scattering


fertilizer on the soil sur-
face in the root zone. Fo-
cus fertilizer applications
in a donut-shaped area
that centers on the farthest
reach of the branches.
Where lawns may be
affected by the fertilizer
(by the way, trees do get
their share of fertilizer you
put down for your lawn),
it can be placed in holes 1
inch across and 8 inches
deep evenly scattered in
the root zone of the tree.
Tree fertilizer spikes also
can be used to accomplish
about the same thing.
One thing to consider,
however, is if there is turf
growing under the canopy
of your trees you may elect
to wait until April to fertil-
ize as cool nighttime tem-
peratures and the applica-
tion of fertilizers make the
development of develop-
ment of brown patch or
large patch in the turf much
more likely. In this case you
should probably consider

gVr r-


waiting until April to apply
the fertilizer.
The above statement
though bring up a point
that can benefit the tree
immensely and that is con-
sider developing a mulch
"buffer" zone around the
tree, possibly as far out as
the tree canopy. This will
do two things; 1. It will al-
low you to fertilize at an
earlier date than you can
if you have turf growing all
the way up to the base of
the tree and secondly you
avoid the damage men-
tioned above caused by
string trimmers and lawn-
mowers each year that
either slow growth or can
even cause death in the
trees.
Finally, if you would
prefer, you can contact a
local tree service to come
out and fertilize your trees
for you. This might be
better for larger, older
trees with extensive root
systems.

(850) 482-4353 Fax (850) 482-2217

Dear City of Marianna Resident,
On Tuesday, April 9, 2013, all City of Marianna residents will be called upon to vote on a
referendum to make a very important decision as to whether the City should establish its own electric
utility service by purchasing the electric facilities presently owned by Florida Public Utilities Company
("FPU") located within the City limits of the City of Marianna. This referendum is the result of years of
hard work and the decision to pursue this path has been carefully considered with the primary goal being
to protect the residents of Marianna from having to pay too much for electrical service.

S If a majority of the Citizens adopt the change, the City will be able to take ownership of your
electric system resulting in all City residents having input on electric rates and service for our community.
FPU and the Public Service Commission in Tallahassee will no longer set the electric rates for the City.
Revenues generated from the City owning and operating the electric service could be used to enhance our
quality.of life by improving the City's infrastructure such as roads, recreation facilities and other City
property. Remember your vote on April 9th is very important for the future of our City.
We encourage you to contact your Commissioner or the City Manager, Jim Dean, to discuss this
very important decision at 850-482-4353. In addition, to find out more information the City will be holding
public forums for residents/voters to attend. The dates, time & locations are as follows:
March 18th, 19th, 25th, 26th, & 28th City Hall Commission Roont, 4 pm 6:30 pm.
April 1st, 2nd, & 8th City Hall Commission Room, 4 pm 6:30 pm.
March 21st & April 4th McLane Center, 4291 Clay Street, 4 pm 6:30 pm.

It's all about your money Marianna, so practice your right to vote by showing up at the polls on
April 9th to let your voice be heard.

Uncovering



the whole



truth about



Dozier abuses
Finally, Florida families whose sons and brothers
died at the infamous Dozier School for Boys in
Marianna may learn what happened to them.
Attorney General Pam Bondi's entry this week into one
of the state's most brutal chapters should lead to the
exhumation of remains at the school's campus and
provide a more complete account of whom has been
buried there. The information might not bring closure,
as many of those buried there are believed to be vic-
tims of horrendous abuse by tormentors now aged or
dead. But it is the least the state owes victims' families
and history. Crimes such as these, committed at the
hand of government, should never be ignored. A judge
should grant Bondi's petition to exhume remains.
For much of its 111 years, until it was finally closed in
2011, Dozier was little more than a concentration camp
for children whose crimes were too often inconsequen-
tial. It was not until 2008, when a group of men known
as the "White House Boys" who had been confined at
Dozier in the 1950s and '60s stepped forward and later
filed a lawsuit that the full extent of the atrocities in
more modern times became known. Tampa Bay Times
reporters Ben Montgomery and Waveney Ann Moore
embarked on an extensive investigation into Dozier's
history. Then-Gov. Charlie Crist ordered the Florida
Department of Law Enforcement to investigate. But
it wasn't until researchers at the University of South
Florida began examining Dozier's grounds using radar
that the extent of the government's century-long am-
bivalence and complicity became clear.
USF's preliminary findings suggested as many as 100
deaths may have occurred at the facility far more
than the 31 FDLE suggested after an all-too-cursory in-
vestigation. And there's reason to believe that there are
more burial sites and an untold number of unmarked
graves, given that it would have been unlikely for black
and white children to have been buried together in an
era of segregation.
Now Bondi has asked the court to give Dr. Michael
Hunter, medical examiner for Florida's 14th judicial cir-
cuit, permission to investigate clandestine graves for up
to a year. She said she became involved after meeting
with victims' family members.
Bondi should also be ready for what happens next.
Should Hunter discover any cases that provide enough
evidence to move forward with criminal investigations,
Bondi should consider assigning it to someone other
than FDLE. During'its 2008-09 investigation at Crist's
request, the.agency failed to aggressively pursue survi-
vors' claims.
It should not have taken this long for the state to wel-
come an honest accounting of the graves at Dozier and
all that implies for a government that was entrusted
with young lives only to allow them to be abused. Now
that such an accounting could begin, Bondi should not
relent until she is confident the state has learned all it
can. Florida owes the victims, their families and other
Dozier survivors no less.

On soda and the right to be stupid


secretary of State John Kerry
was right when he said, "In
America you have a right to
be stupid if you want to be,"
especially when it comes to drink-
ing soda.
Kerry was talking to German
students about political liberty, but
we also take seriously our freedom
to make bad food decisions.
Three-fourths of Americans
disapprove of NewYork City's ban
on gigantic sodas, which a judge
invalidated March 11, and about
six in 10 say no to "sin" taxes on
unhealthy foods and sodas, the As-
sociated Press reported in January.
Downing the equivalent of 16
packets of sugar the amount in a
20-ounce can of regular soda is
a personal choice, people say. OK,
but where does personal freedom
stop and public responsibility start?
Smoking was once considered
a personal choice, but when the
preponderance of evidence proved
its health hazards, the government
took action. Americans balked at
first but then accepted warning
labels on cigarette packages and
higher taxes on cigarettes.
Today, most people appreciate
bans on smoking in offices, bars,
restaurants, shops, movie theatres
and sporting events. We are glad
not to breathe second-hand
smoke or wear it in our hair and
clothes.
Similarly, we've come to appreci-
ate seat belts and, in all but a few
states, motorcycle helmet laws that
limit our freedom for the greater
good of survival.
Mayor Michael Bloomberg's
soda rule has flaws, but its intent
- "to address the super-size trend
and reacquaint New Yorkers with
smaller portion sizes, leading to a


reduction in consumption of sug-
ary drinks" is sensible. There's a
consensus that Americans are get-
ting fatter and sicker, and that soft
drinks are partly but not totally
- to blame.
"There is very real evidence
now that soft drinks are related
to weight gain and obesity and,
most certainly, diabetes," nutrition
expert Dr. Walter Willett of Harvard
School of Public Health told NBC
News.
Diabetes is epidemic, Willett
and others say. Among Americans
20 and older, 11.3 percent have
diabetes, and among those 65 and
older, nearly one in three have the
disease, according to the Ameri-
can Diabetes Association, which
says the cost of diabetes last year
reached $245 billion, up 41 percent
in just five years.
A 2004 Harvard study found that
women who drank one or more
sugary drinks per day had an 83
percent greater risk of developing
Type 2 diabetes than women who
rarely drank them.
Limiting consumption of sug-
ary drinks in hopes of improving
health is NewYork's approach. But
state Supreme Court justice Milton
Tingling said it was arbitrary, capri-
cious and full of loopholes. The rule
applied to cafes and restaurants
but not to convenience stores. It


regulated sodas but not milkshakes
or alcoholic beverages, which have
more calories. It allowed unlimited
soda refills, effectively gutting the
restriction.
Portion control would create "an
administrative Leviathan," Tingling
wrote a day before the rule was to
go into effect.
Bloomberg, dubbed "Nanny B"
by critics, is appealing the ruling.
He says he's confident the rule will
stand and will become a model
for other localities. New York was
among the first to eliminate trans-
fats in prepared foods and require
calorie counts on menus.
The American Heart Association
recommends that women have no
more than six teaspoons and men
nine teaspoons of added sugar
a day. Americans eat about 22 /2
teaspoons a day in everything from
soda and candy to cakes and sweet-
ened yogurt.
Consumption of sugary drinks
already has declined, says the
American Beverage Association,
which notes the average number
of calories in a beverage serving
has dropped 23 percent since 1998
because more people are drinking
diet and low-cal drinks and bottled
water.
If Bloomberg is right that sugar is
the next tobacco, could a sugar tax
be waiting in the wings? President
Barack Obama has said a tax is
worth exploring. Congress rejected
a sugar tax as part of health reform
because it's so unpopular.
For now, we have the right to
be stupid without paying one
penny more.

Florida Voices


The Legislature dodges another bullet


The Florida Legislature has
dodged another political bul-
let. Over the past few years
lawmakers have been considering
legalizing Internet cafes, which
have operated as strip mall casinos
across the state, under the auspices
of raising money for charities.
I don't think we have to worry
about that happening now.
On Wednesday, Lt. Gov. Jennifer
Carroll, the highest-ranking Afri-
can-American Republican woman
in state government, suddenly
resigned after state and federal law
enforcement officers began making
arrests in six states as part of an
illegal gambling and racketeer-
ing investigation of an Internet
sweepstakes cafe network that
had employed her as a marketing
consultant.
In a statement, Carroll said she
did not believe she was a target of
the investigation.
According to Seminole County
Sheriff Donald Eslinger, the in-
vestigation began three years ago
and initially focused on a veterans
group, Allied Veterans of the World.
Instead of aiding veterans, the


purpose of its cafes was to make
a profit for Allied Veterans and In-


Rick
Outzen


international Internet
Technologies, an
Oklahoma-based
firm that provided
the gaming software.
The $300 million
operation gave less
than 2 percent of its
profits to charities.
The two national


commanders of the charity alleg-
edly netted $30 million from de-
vices resembling slot machines in
their cafes. The software company
reportedly made $36 million.
During the 2012 legislative ses-
sion, the Florida House passed a
bill that would have outlawed the
Internet cafes, but it died because
the Florida Senate would only con-
sider legislation regulating them.
This year, the cafes were to be
considered as part of all-encom-
passing gambling legislation that
probably would have been ready
for consideration by the 2014 ses-
sion. However, there has also
been a push in the House and Sen-
ate to place a moratorium on


Internet cafes.
State Sen. John Thrasher, R-St.
Augustine, already has a morato-
rium bill (SB 1030) in the pipeline.
State Sen. Garrett Richter, R-Na-
ples, told The Miami Herald that
the Senate Gaming Committee,
which he chairs, will hold a hear-
ing on the bill next Monday and
the discussion could go beyond a
moratorium.
Once again, Florida lawmakers
have been saved from themselves.
They dodged a similar bullet
thtee years ago. In 2010, the law-
makers were on the verge of lifting
the ban on drilling in the Gulf of
Mexico. Lobbyists swept into Tal-
lahassee with buckets of cash. The
only thing that stopped them was
the Deepwater Horizon explosion,
which made it difficult to lift the
ban while tar balls washed up on
Panhandle beaches.
I guess we can say the legisla-
tive process works in Florida or
maybe our lawmakers are simply
very lucky.

Landscape maintenance shouldn't be a burden


BY ROB TRAWICK
Extension Horticuturist
University of Forida IFA!

Gardening activities and
maintenance always in-
crease in the spring. That's
why it is so important to
make sure your landscape
is designed in a way that
does not demand more
time than you are able to
provide.
Otherwise, you end up
feeling overworked and
frustrated, and your land-
scape may not look its
best.
To accomplish your de-
sign feat, you need to know
what works, what is critical
to success (leave out the
fluff) and how to create a
landscape that doesn't de-
mand more maintenance
time than you are willing
or able to give it.
Reduce the work
Generally, the highest
maintenance parts of a
landscape are the flower
beds. Gardens full of col-
orful annuals and peren-
nials look great and
everybody craves color.
But these beds must be
replanted, as needed, and
they also have to be weed-
ed, watered, groomed and
protected from insect and
disease problems. If you
are trying to decrease the
amount of maintenance
your landscape requires, it
is a good idea to minimize
the number and size of
flower beds (or even elimi-
nate them).
As part of that effort, only
plant flowers in the most
important places. Flower


beds would be appropriate
close to the front entrance
to your home to brighten
the front landscape, focus
attention on the front door
and welcome visitors. You
could reduce maintenance
even more by planting
colorful bedding plants in
large containers instead of
in the ground. Beds and/or
containers of flowering an-
nuals also are appropriate
around outdoor living ar-
eas, such as decks or pati-
os, to brighten and enrich
the area where your family
spends time outside.
Lawns are another high-
maintenance part of the
landscape. At least once
a week from April until
November you are forced
to drag out the lawn-
mower and mow the lawn
- whether you want to or
not. Lawn areas are attrac-
tive in the landscape and
are necessary for outdoor
activities, such as a kids
play area, but do you re-
ally need that much lawn?
A smaller lawn means less
work. Reduce maintenance
by replacing some or all of
the lawn with lower main-
tenance ground covers.
Since fertilizer stimulates
growth, which increases
mowing frequency, fertil-
ize your lawn moderately,
if you do it at all. Fertil-
ization is critical only if
your lawn shows signs of
low vigor or if you need to
stimulate growth to fill in
damaged areas.
Make the right choices
If you choose plants that
will grow and mature at
the proper size, you will


reduce your yard work
substantially. Pruning can
add a tremendous amount
of work to landscape main-
tenance, and the most
common reason for prun-
ing is to control the size of
plants in the landscape.
Why plant a shrub that
will grow to be 8-feet tall in
a location where a 4-foot
shrub is needed? You will
have to constantly prune
the plant to keep it half as
big as it wants to be. Never
purchase any plant par-
ticularly trees and shrubs
- without knowing or ask-
ing what its mature size
will be.
You also should choose
trees and shrubs that are
welladapted to our climate
and are not prone to con-
stant pest problems. Just
because you see a plant
available at the nursery
does not necessarily mean
it will thrive here.
Even more, some of peo-
ple's favorite plants, such
as the hybrid tea roses, are
very high maintenance. By
selecting plants that are'
not as likely to have major
insect or disease problems
you will reduce the consid-
erable amount of work in-
volved in pest control.
If you have had more
failures with plants than
you care to remember, get
into the habit of asking and
learning about plants be-
fore you use them in your
landscape. Your University
of Florida IFAS extension
office is a great source for
information. You can visit
http://jackson.ifas.ufl.edu
for a listing of offices and
for general information


about plants. Another great
resource is the University
of Florida's IFAS Electronic
Data Information Source
(EDIS)' that has links to
numerous publications as
well at http://edis.ifas.ufl.
edu.
Make sure you choose
plants that are well adapt-
ed, reliable, less prone to
pests and able to thrive
in the growing conditions
where you intend to plant
them. That way you will
have a much easier time
taking care of them.
Do what's important
Even if you want to re-
duce the amount of time
you're spending on gar-
dening activities, it's still
critical to take care of the
important things.
Mulching is very im-
portant for an attractive
landscape and healthy
plants. It's also especially
critical in reducing weeds.
A 2-inch to 3-inch layer of
mulch should be placed
over the soil in every bed
in your landscape. It is well
worth the cost and effort.
Not only is it your best de-
fense against weeds, but
mulches also conserve
soil moisture by slowing
evaporation from the soil
surface. Weeding and wa-
tering are major gardening
jobs, and the more we re-
duce the effort needed to
do them, the better.
Speaking of watering,
professionally installed
irrigation systems with
automatic timers are an
excellent way to save your
time and effort in water-
ing. Even soaker hoses
f


Ground covers offer many great advantages


useful in problem areas such as
steep slopes, under low-branched
trees and shrubs where roots oflarge
trees protrude and in confined areas
where mowing is difficult. They also
are a good solution to areas under
trees that have become too shady for
grass to grow.
You must carefully consider the
characteristics you would like the
ground cover to have (height, tex-
ture, color and so forth) when mak-
ing your selection. In addition, you
must consider the growing condi-
tions where it will be planted such
as sunny or shady, dry or moist.
You should also look at the size of
the area to be planted. Only the most
reliable, fast-spreading and reason-
ably priced ground covers should
be considered for large areas. Mon-
key grass (Ophiopogon japonicus),
Creeping Lily Turf (Liriope spicata)
and Japanese ardisia (Ardisia japon-
ica) are good choices for shade to
part shade. Asiatic jasmine (Trache-
lospermum asiaticum) is excellent
for sun to part shade.
Whatever type of ground cover you
choose, proper preparation of the
planting area will help ensure good
establishment and faster growth.
First, remove all existing unwanted
vegetation, such as lawn grass or
weeds, from the area. You can do
that by physically pulling or digging
it out or with a herbicide such as
glyphosate.
'Next, till the soil to loose it. If you
are working under a tree, use a turn-
ing fork to minimize damage to the
tree's,roots, and avoid severing roots
larger than 1 inch in diameter when-
ever possible.
After the soil is broken up, spread
2 inches of organic matter (compost,
peat moss or rotted manure) over the
surface and work it in. If necessary,
2-3 inches of additional blended
soil mix (generally called topsoil or

Lawns have their purpose in the
landscape. They create a restful con-
trast to flower beds and other ele-
ments in the landscape. Lawns also
are often needed for outdoor ac-
tivities and are indispensable if you
have kids.
However, every square foot of
space not occupied by shrub plant-
ings or flower beds does not have
to be planted with grass. Not only
can this create a rather boring land-
scape, but lawn areas are also high
maintenance and have to be mowed
every five to seven days from April to
November.
Instead, consider planting some
areas with ground covers. They
will add beauty.and interest to the
home landscape, as well as reduce
maintenance.
Planting ground covers in the
spring, while the weather is still cool,
is recommended. Early planting will
provide ground covers with a chance
to become somewhat established
before hot weather arrives.
To make clear what we are talking
about, the term ground cover is ap-
plied to low-growing plants, other
than turf grasses, used to cover areas
of the landscape. Perennial, ever-
green plants having a sprawling or
spreading habit are most often used.
The plants used for ground covers
generally are 1 foot or less in height,
but taller growing plants are also
used appropriately in certain land-
scape situations.
In addition to the beauty they pro-
vide, ground covers also have lots of
practical uses. Some ground covers
are effective in erosion control. Be-
cause they don't have to be mowed,
ground covers reduce landscape
maintenance and are especially

Cucumber family provides


many favorite vegetables
*b


BY ROB TRAWICK
Extension Horticulturist
University of Florida IFAS

The cucumber family, properly know
as the cucurbitaceae (cu-cur-bit-A-cee
ee), provides a wide variety of vegetables
popular for the spring, summer and fal
home vegetable garden.
Members of the cucumber family (cu-
curbits) that can be planted now and intc
April include summer squash, zucchini
winter squash, pumpkin, gourd,.cucuzzi
watermelon, cantaloupe, cushaw, luffe
and, of course, cucumber.
All of these vegetables produce vines
that run along the ground or climb. Sum-
mer squash and zucchini vines actually
are rather short and thick and so are more
bushlike than other commonly grown
members of the family. Some dwarf or
"bush" types of cucumbers and other cu-
curbits also may be available.
Members of the cucumber family pro-
duce separate male and female flowers,
but they both occur on the same plant.
Pollen must be transferred from the male
flowers to the female flowers'to obtain
fruit set. The transfer of pollen is done by
bees and other insects, so it is extremely
important not to spray insecticides in the
morning when bees are most active. Wait
until late afternoon or early evening if in-
secticides must be used.
Male flowers produce the pollen that
fertilizes the eggs in the ovary of the fe-
male flowers, which leads to fruit for-
mation (it is the fruit of these vegetables
that we harvest to eat). It is important to
understand that only the female flowers
actually develop into fruit.
Cucumbers, for instance, produce
enormous numbers of male flowers com-
pared to female flowers. I have talked to
many gardeners who thought they were
about to see a bumper crop of cucumbers
only to watch in stunned disappoint-
ment as all of the flowers fell off without
producing cucumbers.
To distinguish the male flowers from the
female flowers in cucurbits, it is necessary
to look at the flowers closely. The showy
part of the flower is often very similar. It
is behind the flower where the differences
between male and female flowers can be
observed. The female flower possesses an
ovary that looks like a miniature version
of the fruit that will eventually form.
The female flower of a cucumber, for
instance, is connected to the vine by what
looks like a tiny cucumber, and the ovary
of a female squash flower looks like a tiny
squash. Male flowers, however, don't have
these characteristics.
Cucurbits to grow
Squash is among the most popular and
productive of the warm-season vegeta-
bles. Most families need to plant only a
few plants to supply them with an abun-
dance of squash, and now is an excellent
time to plants seeds or transplants into
the garden.
The short-vine, bushy summer squash
plants are rather large (24 to 36 inches
across), so make sure you space them
properly in the garden. The fruit is har-
vested immature while it is young arid
tender (your thumbnail should eas-
ily penetrate the rind). Commonly grown


summer squashes are yellow crookneck,
yellow straightneck, zucchini, scallop and
cocozelle.
Winter squash usually have a more vin-
ing growth habit and need more room to
grow than summer squash. Their fruit is
allowed to remain on the vine until fully
matured when the rind is hard (fou
cannot penetrate the rind with your
thumbnail). The name winter squash
does not refer to when they are grown, but
rather to the fact that the fruits keep well
and may be stored and consumed during
the winter. Examples of winter squash
grown locally are pumpkin, butternut,
acorn, Turk's turban and Hubbard.
Cucumbers generally are easy vegeta-
bles to grow. Transplants generally are
available, but as with most cucurbits,
they are easily grown by planting seeds
directly into the garden.
Most gardeners allow cucumber vines
to grow along the ground, but it is high-
ly recommended that you trellis them.
Provide a sturdy trellis 3 feet to 4 feet tall
and space plants along the base about 6
inches apart. Work done at University of
Florida research stations show substantial
yield increases for trellised cucumbers, as
well as fewer disease problems and better
quality cucumbers.
One of my favorite members of this
family is the luffa gourd. Very easy to
grow, luffa seeds may be planted directly
into the garden now at the base of a 6-foot
trellis. Then you'll need to thin the plants
to 1 foot.to 2 feet apart when they come
up.This luffa vine does triple duty in the
garden. With attractive green leaves that
stay healthy all summer and large, bright-
yellow male flowers, it is good-looking
enough to be used as an ornamental an-
nual vine. In addition, the fruit is edible
when 6 inches to-8 inches long and can
be sliced, breaded and fried like okra.
Indeed, two old common names for this
gourd climbing okra and Chinese okra
- refer to its similarity to okra in flavor
when fried.When the gourd is mature and
the skin turns brown, it can be peeled to
reveal the most remarkable aspect of this
plant a tough network of fibers that
make an excellent sponge. When a plant
will provide beautiful flowers, edible fruit
and a sponge to clean up with, well, you
can't ask for much more than that.

The assignment will allow him
to work more intensely on cases
within NCIS, he said. "This is
something I wanted to do, because,
in my job, I didn't always feel like I
was doing something as significant
as I wanted for my country. This as-
signment makes me feel more like
I'll be doing that. I feel like I'll be
more in a role of helping in han-
dling cases that involve protecting
our country."
He expects to be in Afghanistan
about six months, and then will be
back in Glynco.
He said his family and friends
are "staying prayerful" for him and
that he has no fear going in. "I'm
not worried about myself and I
don't want them to worry, because I
know, and they know, that the same

barn lights. It's early to bed,
then, for some rest before an-
other busy day begins. An honor
student, Chelsea spends some
of her time there.helping oth-
ers who are struggling in some
academic endeavor.
Edenfield's mother said she's
proud of her daughter's com-
mitment and of her growing
success on the circuit. She's
particularly proud, she said,
because Chelsea is realizing so
much success with horses that
aren't true rodeo mounts of
competition grade.
The family simply doesn't have
the income needed to pur-
chase such specimens. Instead,
Chelsea's father, Earl Edenfield,
does his best to provide promis-
ing horses from the stock they


can afford and always finds a
way to get her where she needs
to be. The expenses can be
daunting, but Chelsea said her
parents and her brother, Chase
Johnson, always come through
with support.
In one case, her father brought
her a newborn foal, which she
named Raven.
"My dad caught her in his
arms when she was born, and
I trained her from scratch,"
Edenfield said. "She's well
enough trained to where I can
take all off all her gear and she'll
do the barrel pattern by herself,
with me aboard just holding her
mane."
Edenfield said that was right
up her alley; she likes it best
when she can get hold of a horse
with no prior training.
"The breaking and training
part is fun, because every horse
is different," she said. "I have
one horse who will be perfectly

trophy saddles.


fine one minute, and the next,
he'll stand me on my head. If
someone was getting into barrel
racing, they should get a green
horse and go from there."


Edenfield wants to train
horses for a living at some point
in her life, and ultimately wants
to be a veterinarian. As the pri-
marv'caregiver for her horses,


she already knows how to give
certain shots and administer
some other key healthcare tech-
niques. She hopes to soon start
shadowing a vet in Donalson-
ville, Ga., a short distance from
her home on the outskirts of
Bascom near the Georgia line.
Just as Chelsea's mother looks
on her daughter's hard work and
planning with pride, there is
also a twinge of regret that she
can't provide the youngster a
more v. '-i F.r, rj horse.
'h&-', hoping that her daugh-
ter's record of success will spur
someone to offer sponsorship,
the kind of support that would
help the family with all manner
of rodeo and feeding expenses,
and might just help the family
obtain a true rodeo mount for
Chelsea. She'll need a strong,
fast horse; she's got her eye on
an NBHA world championship.
Chelsea's mother can be
reached at 209-3236.

Credit Helpful Hints


Why is it so important to have good credit? Some of the
most important financial transactions in your life are
governed by your credit score and report. Your credit
score and report determine your borrowing capacity, the
interest rate you'll pay on loans, if you're qualified for a
job or if you can rent an apartment. Your credit profile
is one of your most important assets and maintaining it
should be a top priority.
People frequently use different forms of credit to pay
for a home, car, emergencies or everyday expenses. It's
important to pay loans and credit card bills on time and
keep a budget to ensure you manage your credit wisely.
You can also obtain your credit report annually from
www.annualcreditreport.com. I recommend that you
review your credit reports yearly so you can ensure there
is no fraudulent activity.
Do you need to rebuild your credit or are you looking
for a safe way to securely build new credit? We offer
a Secured Visa Credit Card' that will help you wisely
build credit and is secured by a savings account. We
also have access to many tools to help you monitor your
credit. Stop by our Marianna branch to see me for more

Malone girls knock off Graceville


BY DUSTIN KENT
dkent jcfloridan.com

The Malone Lady Tigers soft-
ball team picked up a big home
win Friday against Graceville,
knocking off the visiting LadyTi-
gers 8-6 for their second victory
of the season.
Malone improved to 2-3 overall
with the win in its first non-dis-


trict contest of the season, over-
coming an early 4-0 deficit by
scoring eight consecutive runs
and holding off a late GHS rally.
Graceville scored four in the
top of the first inning, but Malo-
ne answered with four of its own
in the bottom of the frame, with
Jennifer Hewett providing the big
hit in the form of a bases-loaded
triple to tie the game.


Malone then added four more
runs in the third inning to make
it 8-4, a lead that stood until the
top of the seventh when Gracev-
ille rallied for two runs to cut the
margin in half.
But while Malone fell victim to
a big late-inning comeback by
Laurel Hill in a 5-4 district loss
Thursday night, the Lady Tigers
held firm Friday, stopping the


GHS rally in its tracks and hang-
ing on for the win.
"I told the girls when we got
that lead that we're not going
to let this one go," first-year
Malone coach Preston Roberts
said after the game. "We had to
fix the problem, and the girls
responded. Graceville started to

The Chipola Indians had
their nine-game winning streak
snapped in Eunice, La., over
the weekend, dropping a pair of
games to LSU-Eunice.
Chipola hadn't previously lost
since a 9-7 defeat to Polk State
on Feb. 23, but the Indians fell
to LSU-Eunice 4-0 on Thurs-
day, and then lost again 5-4 on
Friday.
In Thursday's game, LSU-

a four-run sixth, and then held
the Indians down over the final
three innings.
Michael Mader started for
Chipola and took the loss, going
5 2/3 innings and giving up two
hits and seven walks with seven
strikeouts.
Offensively, the Indians had
eight hits as a team, with Bert
Givens, Chase Nyman, and
Cameron Gibson each picking
up two hits.
Ian Rice and Neiko Navarro
also had hits for the Indians.
In Friday's game, it was the

Going off our noodles


A en I think back to July,
S2005 I don't think of the
carefree lazy, hazy days
of summer or the glorious Fourth.
Nope. July, 2005 is a red-letter date
because that's when my home state
legalized the sport of noodling.
Once, had you asked me what is
noodling, I may well have guessed
it to be a method of making one's
own pasta. When I became an
outdoor writer, I learned otherwise.
Noodling, instead, is a rather
unorthodox method of catfishing,
popularized today largely because
of reality TV and America's
unquenchable thirst for offbeat
adventure.
When noodling, the angler works
around the perimeter of a lake or
stream, seeking holes in the bank
or in and under submerged debris.
Finding such a cavity, he inserts
his hand and hopes a big catfish
(Please, Lord, let it be a catfish!) will
latch onto his hand and allow itself
to be pulled from its hiding place.
When the pastime became
permissible in my neck of
the woods, Georgia's fisheries
management chief was thusly
quoted: "The best advice our
agency can provide is to take a
friend with you and use some
caution, especially to those who
are completely unfamiliar with
this method, in the event that they
come across something other than
a catfish or have difficulty coming
up for air."
Say again, Chuck? What was that
last part? Something about grab-
bing hold of a gator or water moc-
casin, or maybe drowning?
Uh huh. That made me want to

rush right out and get started. You
betcha.
I have no idea why a fishing
license is required for noodling.
If one is old enough for a fishing
license, shouldn't he have sense
enough not to do it in the first
place?
Personally,. I stopped noodling
at age 13, back in 1965. My friend
Marvin D. Wyatt and I were "mud-
din"' a creek that had dwindled
down to a few landlocked water-
holes full of fishes and other aquatic
critters.
Understand now, muddin' is not
noodling. Muddin' entails agitating
the bottom of a closed-off fishing
hole with hoes, rakes, or other such
implements, thus dissipating the
oxygen in the water and causing the
inhabitants to rise to the surface
seeking breathable air. When the
fishes surface, they can be plucked
from the water and thrown into
a bucket. Muddin', by the way, is
also illegal. But, hey, I was 13 and
living in southeast Alabama, where
conservation had not yet been
invented.
Our muddin' trip inadvertently
turned into a noodling affair when
Marv's daddy got wind of our activ-
ity and decided to join us.
"You stupid idiots,'"he opined.


"You ain't got sense enough to
know you ain't gonna catch nuthin'
but little 'uns fishing' like that? Get
your sorry butts over therq and feel
around in them bank holes. That's
where the big 'uns are."
By the way, self esteem for chil-
dren hadn't been invented back
then either.
Well, Mary and I feared Mr. Wyatt
more than we feared what might
be in those holes, so we did as
instructed. It was pretty cool, too.
Kinda neat reaching in there to see
what we'd find. Like I said, we were
13 and, of course, immortal.
I waded toward one large cavity,
intent upon sticking my hand in,
when Mr. Wyatt stopped me.
"Whoa, fool," he said. "There'll
likely be a big mudcat in that one
and you'll just lose him. Get out of
the way."
Obediently, I gave way as Marv's
dad inserted his own arm, up to the
elbow, into the hole. Sure enough,
Mr. Wyatt's fingers got a "nibble."
I thought the scream was a yell
of delighted excitement until I saw
the little snapping turtle on the end
of the man's digits. That's the day I
learned a turtle will not necessarily
hold on until it thunders, especially
when slung through the air with
enough force. Of course, during
launch, most of the hide from Mr.
Wyatt's knuckles went with him.
Mary and I swore off noodling
from that day forth. Thinking back
on it, I almost regret it. We could
have probably continued noodling
and muddin' to our hearts' content
for years without interference.
One thing's for certain. Mr. Wyatt
wouldn't have interrupted us again.

win it in the bottom of the
frame against Long, who
replaced Middleton to
start the inning. Lombar-
do singled with one out,
and Moats followed with
a double to left to put run-
ners at second and third.
But Reid got Alexander
to foul out for the second
out, and after hitting John
Michael Glover to load the
bases, got a ground ball
back to the mound from
Danford and fired it to
home for the inning-end-
ing force play at the plate.
Sneads coach Mark
Guerra finally pulled Lom-
bardo from the mound in
the top of the ninth and
the Bulldogs quickly took
advantage, getting a lead-
off single by Tyler Colson,
with JT Meadows getting
hit by a pitch and Long fol-
lowing with a bloop single
to left to load the bases
with one out.
Chris Johnson then hit
a grounder right back to
Clark, who sent it home
for the force and the sec-
ond out.
That brought up Middle-
ton, who lifted a pitch just
barely over second base-


man Hunter Johnson's
head into shallow right
field to bring Meadows
and Long to the plate for
the go-ahead runs.
The Pirates still had life
in the bottom of the ninth,
with Clark leading off with
an infield single, but af-
ter stealing second base,
Clark was caught leaving
for third early by Long,
who easily threw him out
at the base for the first out
of the inning.
Long then struck out
Hunter Johnson for the
second out, but Hayes gave
the Pirates another runner
with a single on a hard line
drive off of Long's glove.
The momentum was
short-lived, though, with
Cade Hall hitting a ground
ball to shortstop and Mid-
dleton easily tossing it to
second base for the force
out to end the game.
The Pirates actually out-
hit the Bulldogs 9-5, with
Hayes and Moats each
leading Sneads with two
hits, while Danford and
Hall both had a hit and
an RBI. Middleton led the
Bulldogs offensively, go-
ing 3-for-4 with two RBIs,
while Long was 1-for-3
with a walk and two runs,
and Strauss walked twice
and scored twice.

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.
Crappies remain reason-
ably active, with individual
fish showing up in pretty
good sizes. Both minnows
and jigs are producing
well.
Shellcrackers and blue-
gills remain slow, but there
are signs of improvement.
Few other species are
producing positive reports
at present.

LAKE EUFAULA
Bass are fair, but the
general largemouth
population is not active
because of the still-cool
water temperatures. Shal-
low-water fishing has been
recently slowed by frontal
passages. Best fishing is
during the middle of the
day and later. Rat-L-Traps
and trick worms might
produce around shallow
and mid-depth structure.
For deeper fish, particu-
larly 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.

Thclated:BeteenArw Tg S op, If n M ony es,











JACKSON COUNTY FLORIDAN wwv/.jcfloridan.com


Dear Annie: My 27-year-old son, "Scott,'
is married with one child. Twelve years
ago, Scott's mother and I divorced, and I
think he is still angry about it. My ex-wife
and I have both remarried, but Scott
wants little to do with either of us.
Scott rarely visits. If we want to see our
grandson, we have to go to his place.
They did show up for Christmas and
were terribly cold to everyone. They
didn't even let my wife hold the baby,
which broke her heart.
Last week, we ran into Scott near his
job. He looked as if he hadn't shaved in
weeks. My wife gave him $20, and when
I saw his car in the parking lot, I wrote
on the dirty door, "Haircut?" Three hours
later, I got a text calling me every name
in the book and claiming I scratched his
car. I did no such thing. He insisted the
reason we don't speak is because I make
bad decisions.
I've had it with Mr. Ungrateful. I
thought when Scott became a father he
would understand what we went through
to give him what he needed. He was the
best kid growing up, funny and happy.
Now he hates me, and I'm not too happy
with him, either. But I have a grandson I
want to see. Now what?
SAD DAD IN N.H.

Dear Dad: Some kids never get over a
divorce. Scott could have benefited from
counseling (he still could), but no one
addressed his particular issues at the
time, and so they festered. We agree that
your son seems difficult and hypersensi-
tive. And knowing that, it was not a wise
move to criticize him publicly by writing
on his dirty car. You need to apologize
to Scott for that. If you want the rela-
tionship to improve, please try not to
provoke him, even unintentionally. Ask
him sincerely to let you know when you
upset him so you can rectify it to the best
of your ability. A conciliatory gesture on
your part may allow things to get better.


Dear Annie: You printed a letter from
"Venting," a 20-year-old man who wants
to know how to meet people, especially
girls, because he is too young to drink.
He doesn't sound very interesting, just
wanting to dance at a club or hang out.
Volunteering in an ongoing activity with
committed, purposeful people would be
a much better way to go. I suggest his lo-
cal hospital or Habitat for Humanity.
BOSTON

Dear B. Those are excellent sugges-
tions, but when you are 20, dancing at
clubs and hanging out is often what
friends do. Here are a few more ideas:
Florida: He should look in his area for
dance clubs. If you don't know how to do
certain dances, there are people in the
clubs who give lessons.
Chicago: Please tell "Venting" that
he should join a community chorus
or church choir. Choruses are always
short of men, and he will be welcomed
with open arms, whether he has a good
voice or not, whether he can read music
or not. Whatever he needs to learn, a
sympathetic chorus member could teach
him, or he could take voice lessons. I
have made tons of friends and met my
husband through music.
Saskatoon: If a man of any age wants
to meet women, the best plan is to take
ballroom dance classes. Not only will he
have several women waiting to take their
turn dancing with him, but women will.
swoon over him for the rest of his life. A
woman who wants to meet men should
take golf lessons and then hang out at
the range. She also should learn to like
golf. Otherwise, after the wedding, she'll
never see him again because he'll be at
the golf course.

Annie's Snippet for St. Patrick's Day: An
Irish blessing: May your blessings out-
number the shamrocks that grow, and
may trouble avoid you wherever you go.


Bridge


George S. Kaufman, a playwright,
director and producer who died in 1961,
said, "Once upon a time there were
three bears: Papa Bear, Mama Bear and
Camembert."
In the better-known story about the
three bears, Goldilocks entered their
house through the front door and ate the
baby bear's porridge presumably leav-
ing the cheese in the fridge!
At the bridge table, as we have been
studying this week, we need entries for
a variety of reasons. In this deal, it is to
take some finesses. How should South
play in three no-trump after West leads
the spade queen?
South's sequence showed a balanced
hand with 23 or 24 points (or a good 22).
SNorth shrugged his shoulders and raised
to game.
South starts with six top tricks: one
spade, one heart and four clubs. He
Could establish three winners in dia-
Smonds, but surely the defenders would
then take at least one diamond and four
spades.
Instead, declarer must assume that the
heart finesse is working and chase after
one spade, four hearts and four clubs.
However, South might need to take the
heart finesse three times. This requires
three doors -.entries to the dummy.
And they are available if declarer is/care-
ful with his clubs.
After winning the second (or first) trick
with his spade ace, South leads his club

He is on the board, so he takes a heart

heart finesse. Then he leads the club
queen to dummy's king, takes a third
heart finesse, and claims.

Bolshoi acid attack victim recovering
AACHEN, Germany The Bolshoi ballet artistic
director badly burned in an acid attack said Friday
he is "full of strength and faith" that he will eventu-
ally see well enough to return to work at the famed
Moscow theater.
Sergei Filin, swathed in a large black scarf and

one of his badly damaged eyes had shown some
improvement and that they remained hopeful he

The Associated Press

GREENSBORO, N.C.
Durand Scott knocked
down the shots to turn
away North Carolina
State's best pushes, and
Shane Larkin provided the
steady floor leadership
that kept ninth-ranked
Miami in control.
The backcourt that guid-
ed the Hurricanes to their
first Atlantic Coast Con-
ference regular-season
championship now has
them positioned to add
the tournament title, too.
Scott scored a career-
high 32 points to help
the Hurricanes beat
the Wolfpack 81-71 on
Saturday in the ACC
semifinals, earning the
program's first trip to the
final.
Larkin added 23 for the
top-seeded Hurricanes
(26-6), who before Satur-
day had had reached the
ACC semifinals just once
before as a No. 12 seed
making a surprise run be-
fore falling to eventual na-
tional champion Duke in
2010. Now they're heading
to Sunday's final to face the
winner of the later semi-
final between seventh-
seeded Maryland and No.
3 seed North Carolina.
"We're a very hungry
team, and we want more
and more," Larkin said.
"We're not satisfied with
winning the regular sea-
son. We want the ACG
championship, and then
eventually we want to
make the national cham-
pionship game. We're hun-
gry, and we're not going to
settle for anything less."
Miami led all day and by
19 points late in the first
half against the fifth-seed-
ed Wolfpack (24-10), who
got within six after half-
time but couldn't dig out
of that big hole.
J Scott had a lot to do with


that. The senior guard went
12 for 18 from the field and
5 for 8 from 3-point range
to keep draining the en-
ergy from a home-state
crowd wearing plenty of
red.
Scott scored 21 points
on 10-for-15 shooting as
a freshman in the 2010
semifinal loss to the Blue
Devils, then turned in an
even bigger performance
in the Greensboro Colise-
um on Saturday.
"When I walk into this
building, there's a lot of se-
curity guards, a lot of me-
dia people, a lot of people
that work for the ACC I
think they remember me,"
Scott said. "They always
come up to me like, 'You
remember this building
and how (you did) your
freshman year' and things
like that. ... But I just tell
them that was the past.
That game can't win us the
game today, yesterday or
tomorrow. I've just got to
go out there and do what
I need to do for my team
to win, and that's what I


did tonight."
Scott scored 19 points in
the first half, the last com-
ing on two free throws for
Miami's biggest lead at 39-
20. N.C. State cut the defi-.
cit to 12 at half then 50-44
on Scott Wood's 3-pointer
with 12 minutes left to re-
energize a crowd that had
gone silent with Miami's
early dominance.
But Scott answered with
a straightaway 3, holding
his release long after the
ball swished through the
net. Then Larkin banked
in a pullup shot to push
the margin back to double
figures.
Scott did it again a few
minutes later, hitting a
3 over freshman Rodney
Purvis as the shot clock
wound down then holding
his form again as the Hur-
ricanes went up 13 with
71/2 minutes left. That was
his last basket before foul-
ing out with 1:53 left.
"I think at the start I
didn't do a good enough
job of pressuring him,"
Wood said. "I thinkwe kind


ViE


of let him kind of get in his
comfort zone and ... for
any player, once they see
a couple of shots go down,
they're tough to guard."
The Wolfpack twice more
got the deficit to single dig-
its in the final 2 minutes,
but Larkin hit four straight
free throws to answer those
baskets then rebounded
C.J. Leslie's missed jumper
that signaled an end to the
Wolfpack's run.

SEC Iburnament


No. 13 Florida defeats Alabama, moves onto Finals


The Assoated Press

NASHVILLE, Term -
Florida finally showed it
can win a close game. All
it takes is for senior guard
Kenny Boynton to answer
his coach's challenge.
Held scoreless for the first
25 minutes, Boynton had
11 straight points during a
critical 15-0 run Saturday
as No. 13 Florida erased a
10-point, second-half defi-
cit to beat Alabama 61-51
in a Southeastern Confer-
ence semifinal.
Boynton said he ben-
efited from Gators coach
Billy Donovan's halftime
message to him. The se-
nior guard's second-half

surge helped Florida end
its season-long frustration
in close games.
"He challenged me to
come out and play with
confidence," BoGnton said.
"Honestly he did challenge
me, and I think I tried to
step up to it."
The top-seeded Ga-
tors (26-6) advanced to
the championship game
Sunday against No. 3 seed
Mississippi (25-8), which


"We know that to win out games in theNCAA
tournament, games are going to be dose, so we have
to consistently dose out games
Kenny Boyantwi
Florida guard


defeated Vanderbilt 64-
52 in the other semifi-
nal. Alabama (21-12), the
tournament's No. 4 seed,
will spend Sunday waiting
to learn its fate from the
NCAA tournament selec-
tion committee.
Most mock brackets had
Alabama on the wrong side
of the NCAA tournament
bubble at the start of the
week. Alabama went 12-6
in conference play during
the regular season but hurt


its cause by going 1-5 in
December, including home
nonconference losses to
Mercer and Tulane.
"I'll just go to sleep, wake
up tomorrow and see what
they choose," Alabama
guard Trevor Releford said.
"Whatever they choose, we
go from there."
Boynton scored all 16
of his points during a 7-
minute span. Patric Young
had 13 points and nine re-
bounds forthe Gators. Mike


Rosario added 10 points.
Releford scored 12 points,
and Nick Jacobs and Trevor
Lacey each added 11 for
Alabama.
Alabama led 37-27
with 16:05 remaining be-
fore Florida reeled off 15
straight points over the
next 5 minutes.
The Gators entered Sat-


urday leading the nation in
scoring margin (plus-18.9),
but they're 0-5 in games
decided by six points or
fewer.
"We know that to win out
games in the NCAA tourna-
ment, games are going to
be close, so we have to con-
sistently close out games,"
Boynton said.


GETTING DIRTY


MARK SKINNER/FLORIDAN
Thomas Lipford slides safely into second for Cottondale during a game against Poplar
Springs on Friday.

Malone
From Page 1B
hit the ballfard (in the sev-
enth), and we had one error
in that sequence,' but we
recovered from it, the girls
bounced back, and fin-
ished the job. I was proud
of them. They're growing
up real fast. Graceville's a
good team. We're going to
have a tough time when we
go over there."


Jakivia Hearns started in
the circle for Malone and
went the distance to get the
win, allowing 14 hits and
five walks, and striking out
eight.
Heams also led the team
offensively, finishing 3-for-
4 with an RBI, while Hewett
was 2-for-4 with three RBIs
and two steals.
Kaylee Vaughn and Cait-
lin Miller each had three
hits to lead Graceville, with
Miller notching a double


and a triple, and Vaughn
scoring a run and driving
in one.
Cristina Ramirez, Jossie
Barfield, and Taylor Mc-
Daniel all had two hits for
GHS, while Madison Mc-
Daniel and Angela Clark
both had a hit and two RBIs.
Erin Rosa started in the
circle for GHS and took the
loss, lasting three innings
and giving up six earned
runs on five hits and five
walks with five strikeouts.


Taylor McDaniel came
on in relief in the fourth
and settled things down,
allowing just two hits and
no walks over three innings
and striking out four.
Graceville fell to 3-6 on
the season with the loss.


Snapped
From Page 1B
with one out and scored on
an RBI single by Gibson to
make it 3-0.
LSU-Eunice answered
in the sixth with a rally of
its own, loading the bases
with one out and forcing
Chipola coach Jeff John-
son to take out starter Tim
Holmes and bring in top
reliever Mikel Belcher.
But a wild pitch by
Belcher allowed Trent Vid-
rine to score the first LSU-
Eunice run of the game.
Two batters later, Stefan
Trosclair singled to score
RayVeit to make it 3-2, but
Belcher struck out Landon


Smash
From Page 1B
three runs, and three RBIs,
while Lexie Basford and
Yazmine Bellamy each
had two hits, two RBIs and
three runs.
Bonnie Bigale had two
hits, and Taylor Hussey had.
a hit and two RBIs while
also pitching the final three
innings in relief of starter
Kayleigh Temples.
Templeswenttwoinnings
and gave up three hits and
two walks and struck out
one, with Hussey allowing
just one walk and striking
out three.
With the win, Marianna
improved to 9-1 overall
and 2-0 in District 1-4A
competition.
The Lady Bulldogs will
start this week off with a
pair of road games against
Arnold on Monday and
Mosley on Tuesday before
a home rematch with Pen-
sacola Catholic on Friday.


Thibodeaux to end the in-
ning. The Indians respond-
ed in the top of the seventh
when Givens singled and
scored on an RBI hit by Ny-
man, with LSU-Eunice an-
swering with another run
in the bottom of the frame
on a Chipola error.
LSU-Eunice tied the
game up in the eighth off
of new Chipola reliever
Shane Crouse, with Casey
Rodrigue drawing a one-
out walk, stealing second,
and eventually scored
on a squeeze bunt by
Thibodeaux to make it 4-4.
In the bottom of the
ninth, Vidrine drew a lead-


off walk that caused anoth-
er Chipola pitching change,
with Luis Tunon coming on
for Crouse.
Evan Powell sacrificed
Vidrine to second, and Veit
reached on an error to put
runners on the covers.
CJ Womack came on the
pinch hit for LSU-Eunice,
but a wild pitch by Tunon
allowed Vidrine to come
home for the game-win-
ning run.
The Indians will next
open up Panhandle Con-
ference play Monday in
Tallahassee at 4 p.m. for the
first of a three-game series
with the Eagles.
