selves to a giant

wall at the Chipola
College Spring
Frolics Wednesday.


W th a mighty leap, Autumn Cook
prepares to bop JefferyWaldroff with a
giant inflatable toy during Spring Frolics
at Chipola College Wednesday.


T he rain may have dampened the fun at Chipola
College's Spring Frolics Wednesday but it didn't
put a damper on the occasion.
The annual event, which is normally held next to the
college's pool, just moved its festivities, including the giant
inflatable play areas, into the nearby gym.
This was the second time the frolic has gone indoors in
the last 12 years according to Student Activities Director
Nancy Johnson. While the usual relay games could not
be held, the new location didn't stop the tug of war
from going ahead. This year the Chipola Science Club
won.
In addition to games there was a lunch of hot dogs
and hamburgers and drawings for a door prizes donated
by merchants in Jackson County as well as Chipley and
Bloflntstown.
The prizes ranged from fishing rods and groceries to
$100.
Johnson said the frolic was a chance for the students
to get out of class and do something other than study.
About 150 students took part.

efficient use of the state's water
resources.
"Our priority continues to be
to ensure the sustainable sup-

said Greg Munson, Deputy Sec-
retary for Water Policy and Eco-
system Restoration. "This April
is the perfect time for Florid-
ians to join us in these efforts
by learning more about water
conservation."
For the last 16 months, the
Department has led a statewide
effort to improve consistency in

wrap-up

BY ANGIECOOK

MARIANNA, Fla. Following
a sometimes heated public fo-
rum on the upcoming electric
utility referendum, the city hall
crowd thinned a bit and the
Marianna City
Commission
convened for its
,regular meeting
Tuesday night.
Presentations
to the com-

Dean cluded a report
from Marianna
Health & Reha-
bilitation Center
Administrator
Melinda Gay,
who updated
commissioners
on the progress
Roberts of the facility's
current flooring
project and made note that, if
approved, the governor's pro-
posed budget may provide for
a slight increase in nursing
home funding; a glowing au-
ditor's report from Sara Apple-
white, a CPA with the account-
ing firm Carl, Riggs & Ingram;
and a resolution, read by Char-
lotte Brunner, director of Main
Street Marianna, inwhich Main
Street voiced its support for the
city with regard to the April 9
electric utility referendum.
During the public forum por-
tion of the meeting, resident
Peter Carmichael urged city of-
ficials to intervene in what he
claimed was construction work
being done without the proper
permits at a McPherson Street
property owned by Misty Rich-
ards, who also owns the adja-
cent Bistro Palms.
City officials told Carmichael
that building permits and
building code enforcement
were county responsibilities
delegated through an inter-lo-
cal agreement, but Carmichael
wasn't satisfied.,
After a pointed discussion
about the regulatory respon-
sibilities of city and county
government, City Manager
Jim Dean offered to go to the

reflect the interest rate
the U.S. Treasury charged
CCC for that month. This
was the interest rate speci-
fied by CCC since January
1, 1982, but the process of
establishing the interest
rate was changed by a pro-
vision of the Federal Agri-
culture Improvement and
Reform Act of 1996 (the
Act), enacted on Apjil 4,
1996.
Section 163 of the Act
requires that monthly in-
terest rates applicable to
commodity and market-


ing assistance loans are to
be 100 basis points or
1 percent greater than
the rate determined under
the applicable interest rate
formula in effect on Octo-
ber 1, 1995. This formula
resulted in a rate equiva-
lent to the amount the U.S.
Treasury charged CCC for
borrowing, for the month.

Man gets life for
killing ex-girlfriend
TALLAHASSEE -A
Florida Panhandle man
has been sentenced to
life in prison for killing
his former girlfriend.
A Leon County judge
sentenced 38-year-old
Elijah James on Tuesday
after a jury convicted
him of second-degree
murder and vehicle
theft. He had been
charged with first-degree
murder.
Prosecutors say James
killed 21-year-old
Danielle Brown, who
went missing in Febru-
ary 2010. Though her
body was never found,
prosecutors said Brown
kicked James out of her
home the night before
she disappeared.'Also,
James' DNA was found
in Brown's car, which
had been dumped in
Pavo, Ga., and set on fire.
A defense attorney
argued that a lack of a
body made it hard to .
prove James was guilty.
The Tallahassee Demo-
crat reports that James is
already serving 20 years
in Georgia for lighting
the car on fire.

2 people killed in
helicopter crash
MIAMI- Two people
have been killed in a
Helicopter that crashed
after departing an
executive airport in
southwest Miami-Dade
County.
Miami-Dade Fire
Rescue officials say the
Robinson R44 helicopter
went down Wednesday
afternoon about two
miles east of Kendall-
Tamiami Executive
Airport. It crashed in a
parking lot and burst
into flames.
The officials said two
people aboard were
killed. Their identities
were not immediately
released. There were no
injuries on the ground.
The Federal Aviation
Administration is inves-
tigating the crash.

Rare Florida panther


released back into the wild


The Associated Press
IN THE FLORIDA EVER-
GLADES -An endangered
Florida panther rescued as
a kitten and raised in cap-
tivity has made a rare run
back into the wild.
The sandy-colored, 120-
pound panther cautiously
poked its head out of the
crate that wildlife officials
drove Wednesday from
northeast Florida to Palm
Beach County, then it trot-
ted out onto a gravel road
in the Rotenberger Wildlife
Management Area.
It built up speed with
longer and longer strides,
sprinting several hun-
dred yards before veer-
ing off into the brush and
disappearing.
"To see him run straight
like that for such a dis-
tance and running free off
into the woods makes ev-
erything worthwhile," said


Dave Onorato, a Florida
Fish and Wildlife Conser-
vation Commission scien-
tist who opened the pan-
ther's crate.
The 2-year-old male
panther and its sister were
rescued by wildlife offi-
cials in September 2011 in
Collier County after their
mother was found dead.
They have been raised
at the White Oak Con-
servation Center in
Yulee since they were 5
months old.
Only around 160 Florida
panthers remain, and it's
rare for the big cats to be
cared for in captivity and
then released. Only about
15 kittens or injured adult
panthers have been treated
at the center and released
since it began working
with the cats in 1986.
"Having him in the wild
with the potential to con-


tribute to reproductive
output really is what we
need for panther recovery,"
Onorato said.
The rescued siblings
were raised in a series of
increasingly larger pens
fenced into the forest sur-
rounding the center in
northeast Florida. Human
interaction was extreme-
ly limited, leaving the
panthers to hone their
instincts hunting rab-
bits, armadillos and deer
released into their pens.
Once they got big enough
to take down larger ani-
mals, they were deemed
ready to try their luck in
the wild.
The female panther
was released in Collier
County in February. Like
her brother, she's wear-
ing a collar that allows
researchers to track her
movements.


House panel OKs ban



on texting while driving


The Associated Press

TALLAHASSEE, Fla.
- Florida lawmakers on
Wednesday got one step
closer to a statewide ban
on texting while driving.
The House Economics
Affair committee cleared a
bill (HB 13) by a 16-1 vote
that would make texting
while driving a secondary
offense. That means police
have to first stop drivers
for another offense, such
as speeding.
A first violation is a $30
fine, plus court costs. A
second or subsequent
violation within five years
adds three points to the
driver's license and a $60
fine. And if texting causes
a crash, that's six points.
Points lead to increased
insurance rates. There are
additional penalties for
driving while texting in a


school zone.
Texting while driving is
"equivalent to drinking
four beers very quickly and
getting behind the wheel
of a car," said Rep. Doug
Holder, the Venice Repub-
lican sponsoring the bill.
"We're losing people every
single day because they're
texting while driving and
they're distracted while
driving."
The House bill next goes
to the floor. A companion
bill (SB 52) also is moving
toward the full Senate. Ef-
forts to pass a ban have
stalled for years in the face
of Republican opposition
based on concerns about
government intrusion into
people's lives.
The ban includes typ-
ing a text or reading a text
while driving. It includes
tablet computers as well


as mobile phones, but groups.

excludes using a "talk-to-
text" feature. And it allows
texting while stopped at a
red light.
Committee chair Jimmy
Patronis was the only vote
against. The Panama City
Republican said he con-
tinued to have worries
that the ban was overly
intrusive.
Others on the panel
raised related concerns,
saying it may be difficult to
prove that a driver wasn't
texting. The bill allows the
use of phone records in
defense against a ticket,
for instance. But some
phone companies' records
don't differentiate between
manual texting and talk-
to-text messaging.
The ban is supported
by AT&T, the AARP, AAA,
trial lawyers, businesses
and state law enforcement

Obama to return 5 percent of salary to Treasury


The Associated Press

WASHINGTON Shar-
ing a bit of budget pain,
President Barack Obama
will return 5 percent of his
salary to the Treasury in
a show of solidarity with
federal workers smarting
from government-wide
spending cuts.
Obama's decision grew
out of a desire to share in
the sacrifice that govern-
ment employees are mak-
ing, a White House official
saidWednesday. Hundreds
of thousands of workers
could be forced to take
unpaid leave known as
furloughs if Congress
does not reach an agree-
ment soon to undo the
cuts.
The president is dem-
onstrating that he will be
paying a price, too, as the
White House warns of dire
economic consequences
from the $85 billion in
cuts that started to hit fed-
eral programs last month
after Congress failed to
stop them. In the weeks
since, the administration
has faced repeated ques-
tions about how the White
House. itself will be af-
fected. The cancellation of
White House tours in par-
ticular has drawn mixed
reactions.
A 5 percent cut from

Lawn at the White House in Washington, Wednesday, April 3, as he travels to Denver and San
Francisco.


the president's salary of
$400,000 per year amounts
to $20,000.
Obama will return a full
$20,000 to the Treasury
even though only a few
months remain in the
fiscal year, which ends
in September. He will
cut his first check this
month, said the White
House official, who was
not authorized to discuss
the decision publicly and
spoke on condition of
anonymity.
* The president and first
lady Michelle Obama re-
ported almost $790,000 in


adjusted gross income in
2011, the most recent year
for which their tax returns
have been made pub-
lic. That figure was down
from the $1.7 million they
brought in the year before
and the $5.5 million they
reported in 2009. About
half of the family's in-
,come in 2011.came from
Obama's salary, with the
rest coming from book
sales. The Obamas report-
ed more than $172,000 in
charitable donations.
Wednesday's notice fol-
lowed a similar move a,
day earlier by Defense


Secretary Chuck Hagel,
who committed to taking a
salary cut equal to 14 days'
pay- the same level of cut
that other Defense Depart-
ment civilians are being
forced to take. As many as
700,000 civilians will have
to take one unpaid day
off each week for up to
14 weeks in the coming
months.
Obama isn't the first
president to give up part
of his paycheck. Herbert
Hoover put his salary in
a separate account, then
divvied it up, giving part
to charity and part to em-


ployees he felt were un-
derpaid, according to an
interview he gave in 1937.
John E Kennedy donated
his presidential salary to
various charities, accord-
ing to Stacey Chandler,
an archivist at the John
E Kennedy Presidential
Library.

George Washington re-
fused pay during the latter
part of his military career,
according to researchers
at Mount Vernon. He tried
to refuse a presidential
salary, but Congress re-
quired that the position
pay $25,000.
Among lawmakers, Sen.
Mark Begich, an Alaska
Democrat, said Wedhes-
day that he, too, would re-
turn part of his income to
the Treasury, although he
did not specify how much
of his $174,000 salary he
would give up. Begich said
his office started furlough-
ing staffers in mid-March
and more than half of his
staff will have their pay cut
this year.
"This won't solve our
spending problem on its
own, but I hope it is a re-
minder to Alaskans that
I am willing to make,the
tough cuts, wherever they
may be, to get our spend-
ing under control," Begich
said.

NKorea cears its military


to attack US with nukes


The Associated Press

PAJU, South Korea -
North Korea warned early
Thursday that its military
has been cleared to attack
the U.S. using "smaller,
lighter and diversified nu-
clear" weapons, while the
U.S. said it was strength-
ening protection in the re-
gion and seeking to defuse
the situation.
Despite the intense
rhetoric, analysts do not
expect a nuclear attack by
North Korea, which knows
the move could trigger a
destructive, suicidal war
that no one in the region
wants. It's not believed to
have the ability to launch
nuclear-tipped missiles,
but its other nuclear capa-
bilities aren't fully known.
U.S. Defense Secretary
Chuck Hagel said Wash-
ington was doing all it can.
to defuse the situation. The
Pentagon also will deploy a
missile defense system to
the U.S. Pacific territory
of Guam to strengthen re-
gional protection against a
possible attack.
The strident warning
from Pyongyang is the lat-
est escalating threats from
North Korea, which has
railed against joint U.S.
and South Korean military
exercises taking place in
South Korea and has ex-
pressed anger over tight-
ened sanctions for its Feb-
ruary nuclear test.
Acting on one of its
threats, North Korean
border authorities have
refused to allow entry to
South Koreans who man-
age jointly run factories in
the North Korean city of
Kaesong. Trucks carrying
cargo and South Korean
workers were turned back
Wednesday and again
Thursday morning.
This spring's annual
U.S.-South Korea drills
have incorporated fighter
jets and nuclear-capable
stealth bombers, though
the allies insist they are
routine exercises. Pyong-


yang calls them rehearsals
for a northward invasion.
The foes fought on oppo-
site sides of the three-year
Korean War, which ended
in a truce in 1953. The di-
vided Korean Peninsula re-
mains in a technical state
of war six decades later,
and Washington keeps
28,500 troops in South Ko-
rea to protect its ally.
Hagel said Washington
was doing all it can to de-
fuse the situation, echoing
comments a day earlier
by Secretary of State John
Kerry.
"Some of the actions
they've taken over the last
few weeks present a real
and clear danger and threat
to the interests, certainly
of our allies, starting with
South Korea and Japan and
also the threats that the
North Koreans have lev-
eled directly at the United
States regarding our base
in Guam, threatened Ha-
waii, threatened the West
Coast of the United States,"


Hagel saidWednesday.
In Pyongyang, the mili-
tary statement said North
Korean troops had been
authorized to counter U.S.
"aggression" with "pow-
erful practical military
counteractions," including
nuclear weapons.
"We formally inform the
White House and Penta-
gon that the ever-esca-
lating U.S. hostile policy
toward the DPRK and its
reckless nuclear threat will
be smashed by the strong
will of all the united ser-
vice personnel and people
and cutting-edge smaller,
lighter and diversified nu-
clear strike means," an un-
named spokesman from
the General Bureau of the
Korean People's Army said
in a statement carried by
state media, referring to
North Korea by its formal
name, the Democratic
People's Republic of Ko-
rea. "The U.S. had better
ponder over the prevailing
grave situation."

The Marianna Bulldogs came
back from their week off and
knocked off the Bay High Tor-
nadoes 5-2 on Tuesday night at
Bulldog Stadium.
It's the second straight win for
the Bulldogs, who moved to 10-6
on the season.
Marianna fell behind 1-0 after
the Tornadoes scored a run in
the third inning, but the Bull-
dogs answered with a run in the


bottom of the fourth, and then
added two runs in the fifth and
two more in the sixth to pull
ahead for good.
Hayden Hurst started on the
mound for MHS and went 4 2/3
innings to get the win, allowing
one earned run on six hits, three
walks, and four strikeouts, with
Walker Roberts pitching the final
2 1/3 innings and surrendering
one unearned run on a hit and a
strikeout to pick up the save.
Sean Nguyen started for Bay
and took the loss, giving up two


earned runs on two hits, five
walks, and four strikeouts in four
innings, with Garrett Whittle
allowing two earned runs on
three hits and a walk with two
strikeouts.
Taylor Strauss led the Bulldogs
offensively, going 2-for-3 with a
walk, a run, and two RBI, while
Mason Melvin was 1-for-i with a
walk and an RBI, and JT Mead-
ows had two RBI.

Brooke Williams tossed a complete game shut-
out to lead the Sneads Lady Pirates to a big road
victory over the North Florida Christian Lady
Eagles on Tuesday afternoon in Tallahassee.
The sophomore right-hander went all seven
innings and allowed just four hits and two walks
while striking out five batters.
Williams got 12 ground ball outs, with her de-
fense coming through with one of its best out-
ings of the season.
The Lady Pirates hurler was able to out-duel
NFC star junior Lindsey Bert, who struck out 11
Sneads batters and gave up just two hits, a walk,
and hit two batters.
"That was a pretty big win for us," Sneads
coach Kelvin Johnson said after the game. "Both
pitchers threw very well. Brooke has pitched
extremely well for us lately. She has been out-
standing. If our batting will come around, we'll
be alright."
Williams has now allowed just one run over her
last 25 innings of work, as the Lady Pirates have
now won nine consecutive games to improve to
17-2 on the season.
Sneads got its only run in the fourth inning
when it loaded the bases with no outs when
Alaynah Weiss and Cambridge Chason were hit
by pitches ant Shelbi Byler was walked.
Weiss came around to score on a passed
ball, but a double play and a strikeout by Bert

TheAlthaWildcats tooka2-1 home
victory over the Graceville Tigers
on Tuesday night, with sophomore.
pitcher Cody Barfield delivering a
gem of a complete game to get the
best of GHS starter Clay Jenkins.
Barfield surrendered a run in the
first inning when Jared Padgett led
the game off with a single, stole sec-
ond base, and eventually scored inih
rundown between third and home.
But that was the last time the
Tigers touched home plate, with
Barfield allowing just one more hit
the rest of the game and striking out


eight batters to get the win.
Jenkins was almost as good for
Graceville, going the distance and
allowing just four hits and a walk
with four strikeouts.
"Clay threw great. He did exactly
what we needed him to do pitching-
wise," Tigers coach Bryant Hardy
said. "We just couldn't get the bats
going. We couldn't get anything else
going after the first inning."
Altha tied the game up with a
run in the second inning and went
ahead with another in the fourth off
of a GHS.defensive error.
That proved to be enough cushion
for Barfield and the Wildcats.

Malone rallies past Bethlehem


BY DUSTIN KENT
dkent@jcfloridan.com

The Malone Tigers overcame a big
early deficit to storm back for an 8-
4 road victory over the Bethlehem
Wildcats on Tuesday night, scoring
eight consecutive runs to end the
game.
Bethlehem plated four runs in the
first inning, but Malone answered
with two runs in the second, and
then six in the sixth to surge ahead
for good.
Robert Orshall came on in the
second inning in relief of Tigers
starter BT Johnson and finished out
the game to earn the win, pitching 5
1/3 scoreless innings and allowing
five hits, four walks, and striking


out four.
Orshall entered the game with the
bases loaded and two outs and in-
duced a pop up to end the inning,
keeping the Wildcats off the score-
board for the final five innings.
"That was really big for Robert to
come in and keep them right where
they were," Malone coach Max
Harkrider said. "Coming in with the
bases loaded and getting that out
was huge."
Scott Stephens led the Malone of-
fense, finishing 3-for-4 with a dou-
ble, an RBI, and a run, while Brett
Henry was 2-for-3 with a double, a
walk, and two RBI.
Jonathan Sikes also had a hit and
scored two runs, while Jay Henson,
Austin Lockart, Eric Perdue, and


Hunter Eddins each had a hit and
an RBI.
The win improved Malone to 11-6
overall and 5-3 in District 1-1A and
gave the Tigers the season sweep
over Bethlehem, though Harkrider
said Tuesday's win was very hard
fought for his team.
"Bethlehem played a heck of a
game. They really played well," he
said. "Their pitcher did a great job
keeping us off balance and they
made every play defensively. They
really put some pressure on us; we
just finally found a way to score
some runs."
Malone will play host to district
first-place Paxton today at 5 p.m.


inning in the fourth inning when
they loaded the bases with one out,
but they came away empty-handed
and didn't threaten again.
"We didn't do anything offensive-
ly," Hardy said. "Pitching-wise, it
was one of our better performances
of the year. Clay averaged just over
10 pitches per inning and scattered
some hits. We couldn't ask for any-
thing more from him. We just didn't
hit the ball; that's the bottom line."
Hudson Forsyth had the only oth-
er hit for the Tigers.
Graceville fell to 4-11 overall and
3-6 in District 3-1A competition,
The Tigers will get another chance
to beat Altha at home at 5:30 p.m.

ENTEIAINW]ENT


A I ie's Mailbox


Dear Annie: Recently, I invited my best
friend, "Evan," and his family of four to
join my family at a popular out-of-state
theme park. Our children are similar ages,,
and we have always gotten along well
even though we live in different states.
My wife and I are members of a vaca-
tion program and offered to use our hotel
points to save Evan a great deal of money.
We didn't expect anything in return, but
we had discussed how much fun we'd
have together. This didn't happen. Evan
and his family ignored us, made no effort
to interact with my wife or children, and
had other friends and family join them
at the resort and in our shared rooms.
They frequently went their own way in
the theme park and were distant during
the rare times that we were together. The
final insult occurred on the last day, when
they simply left the resort without saying
goodbye or even thanking us for the stay.
Clearly, Evan took advantage of our
kindness, and interactions since indi-
cate that his family is oblivious to their
behavior. Are we wrong to have expected


Bridge

At the bridge table, we know how many tricks we
need to win. The real difficulty can be knowing how
to do that. In this deal, for example, South needs 10
tricks to make four spades. But how should he play
after West leads the club jack?
North's three-spade rebid was game-forcing, an-
nouncing exactly three-card spade support. He got
two shortage points for his doubletons, making
his hand worth 13 support points. (It also had only
seven losers, which was the number for a game-
force.) South plowed on, hoping for the best. (South
thought about suggesting three no-trump over three
spades, but that contract would have failed after a
club lead.)
Even if spades are breaking 3-2, South seems to
have four losers: two spades, one heart and one club.
And if he immediately plays on spades, he will lose
those tricks. Declarer must find a different plan.
There is one realistic hope. South should win the
first trick with his club ace and lead a spade to the
ace (not vital, but it will save an undertrick if spades
are 4-1 and the defender with one spade has at most
two diamonds). Then he plays on diamonds, start-
ing with his queen, the honor from the shorter side
first. On the third diamond, declarer discards his
club loser. Yes, West ruffs, but it costs one of his nat-
ural trump tricks. South loses only two spades and
one heart.


them to spend time with us? Evan and I
have a long history, and I want to preserve
the friendship. I prefer to drop this issue,
while my wife wants to wash our hands of
these people completely. Is there a tact-
ful way to address this and salvage .the
friendship?
NO EXPLANATION GIVEN

Dear No: The friendship you are trying
to preserve is the one between you and
Evan, so let your wife know that she is off
the hook. Even if there is some reason for
their-rude behavior, that is not an excuse.
They also were unappreciative of your
generosity, although that may have cre-
ated some awkwardness that contributed
to the problem.
It's fine for you to remain in contact with
Evan, but don't plan any more vacation
trips. If Evan should bring up the possibil-
ity of getting the families together again,
simply say that he and his kids seemed
uninterested in spending time with you
before, so you think it's best not to repeat
the experience.


THURSDAYAPRIL 4,2013 + 3B-


Horoscope
ARIES (March 21-April
19) Offering unsolicited
advice is risky at best, so
if you do so anyway, make
sure the recipient knows
that it's just a suggestion.
TAURUS (April 20-May
20) -You're likely to have
rigid ideas about how
things should be done, so
any input from a friend
or associate could be
disruptive.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20)
It isn't always smart to
try to do something the
way another does, even
if that person's work is
excellent.
CANCER (June 21-July
.22) Try to avoid a risky
financial arrangement that
you know little about and
have little control over.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)
--An old, unresolved dis-
agreement between you
and your special someone
could rear its ugly head if
you allow it.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept.
22) Labors of love are
likely to be handled with
remarkable skill, but, you
might not want to be iden-
tified with something that
you dislike but have to do.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23)
Even though your earn-
ing potential is excellent,
the way you manage your
affairs may not be up to
snuff.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov.
22) In order to complete
what you start, you need
to put limitations on how
much you attempt to do.
Work on one assignment
at a time.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov.
23-Dec. 21) Instead of
trying to rectify another's
erroneous perception of
you, you're likely to let
it go unchallenged and
brood. Why?
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-
Jan. 19) Be on guard,
because there is reason
to believe that you could
be the target of an expert
manipulator.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb.
19) Be careful not to do
anything that could offend
someone important to
you.
PISCES (Feb. 20-March
20) As always, you will
have a choice of how you
view developments: posi-
tively or negatively. Don't
envision failure.

QUESTIONS & ATTITUDE
Compelling questions...
and maybe a few actual answers


SPEED FREAKS
A couple of questions we
just had to ask ourselves


Daytona Beach News-Journal/JIM TILLER
Junior shows the proper excite-
ment level for an early-season
points lead.
How long does Junior
stay on top of the Sprint
Cup standings?
KEN'S CALL: Probably until
Jimmie Johnson decides he
wants to check out the view
from the top.
GODSPEAK: Earnhardt seems
to be all about consistency,
so he may have found a home
until we hit summer.

How well will Mark
Martin do this week in
Denny Hamlin's car?
KEN'S CALL: Run with the
leaders awhile, finish between
81h and 15th, tell everyone how
lucky he is to get the chance...
You know. the usual.
GODSPEAK: Martin doesn't
like to race at Martinsville
and is driving a car he's not
familiar wilh, so naturally, he
will win Sunday.


ONLINE EXTRAS

ie, owners'




race, too


The experts have crunched the numbers, and even if
Denny Hamlin misses the next five races, he will still be
eligible for the Chase for the Sprint Cup.
Hamlin is expected to be out until next month with a back
injury, but when he returns, all he has to do is race his way
into the top 20 in the points and have a couple (or three)
wins before the playoffs start in September.
What many folks are not paying much attention
to, though, is the owners' points race. Generally, the
championship driver and car owner are attached at the hip
for the awards banquet in Las Vegas. Maybe not this season.
Owners points don't follow the Chase model. Car owners
are awarded points based on how their car fares in each race.
Right now, there are three car owners who could have a seat
at the championship table and not be joined by their drivers.
The No. 55 Toyota, owned by Michael Waltrip, is the lead
contender. Waltrip shares the ride with Mark Martin and Brian
Vickers. The No. 55 is 14th in the owners points.
The next is the No. 11 Toyota, which is owned by Joe
Gibbs. Hamlin is a long shot for driver honors, but the No. 11
could still nab a piece of the title based on how Hamlin's subs
do in April.
The No. 11 is 11th in the owners points. How ironic would
it be for the No. 11 to win the owners' points, which would
include Martin's one start this weekend at Martinsville?
And there's everybody's favorite underdog, the No. 51
Chevy owned by James Finch. in five races, he's had three
drivers in the seat ol the rio. 51, and surprise, he is ninth in
the owners' points, only 46 points behind the leader. Rick
Hendridc's to. 88 Chevy.


ring before making announcements. Sponsors pay the bills
and yet many times they are taken for granted. When Aaron's
nixed the Mark Martin deal, they showed us who REALLY
carries the weight in the garage area. Money talks.

Getting the vote out
Voting has started that will allow one driver, currently not
eligible for the Sprint All-Star Race on May 18, to gain entry
into the Charlotte Motor Speedway fray. Race fans have two
ways to vote. They can download the NASCAR Mobile '13
app or vote at NASCAR.com. Expect to see some lobbying
by drivers to make the grid, but this vote may be a lock. In
the press release, Sprint said race fans should vote for their
favorite driver "in the hopes of seeing him or her" in the race.
That "her" would be Danica Patrick, who would otherwise
have to win a Cup Series race in the next six weeks to make
the All-Star field.


n Daytona Beajc NewsJ-ournal;JIM TILLER
Joey's intimidation glare needs a little more
work.
Was the Easter holiday enough
to calm everyone down?
Briefly, perhaps. But let's be honest, Joey
Logano might be young enough to still get an Easter
basket, and it he overdoes the chocolate, there's no
. ellng what he might get into this week.
So it's not over for a while?
With Denny Hamlin sidelined for several weeks
:maybe more... honestly, can any doctor really give
3 solid limeline on a back injury?) you tend to think
hmngs will setile down. Except now we have Tony
Stewart angry with Joey. a few other drivers in bad
need ot turning around their early-season funks.
and, you know. that venue thing.

Venue thing?
This week's offering is Martinsville, which
doesn't eraclly include much elbow room. The
only difference between Martinsville and Bristol
is Martinsville's lack of banking, which means the
speeds are slower, which means the intentional
dumping of an opponent tends to look a little less
accidental.
Can it get any more interesting?
Only if Charlie Sheen gets involved. Oh wait, he
is. Well, kinda. It appears that Kyle Busch will do
a guest spot on an upcoming episode of Sheen's
new cable series. "Anger Management," and really,
you gotta figure the producers flipped a coin to
decide between Kyle and brother Kurt. These days,
this passes lor good news in auto racing. It doesn't
matter that so many people consider Sheen a tad
unstable hes a celebrity, by golly. and celebrities
