FLOR-IDAN
7 '


Workshop to focus
on satsumas9A


MARKSKINNER/FLORIDAN
The bus that was carrying Shawaun Dortch and several other students came to a rest in a cluster of trees at the
bottom of an embankment on Magnolia Road Wednesday in Marianna. Dortch kept cool during the wreck and
helped his fellow passengers escape out.of the vehicle's roof hatch.



Teen steps up after




school bus wreck


BYANGIE COOK
acook@jcfloridan.com

It all happened very fast.
"I saw my little cousin in the
air and that's when I shut my
eyes."
That's how Shawaun Dortch
described the scene as his
school bus left the road, started
to tip over and roll down an
embankment into the nearly
woods.
"After we hit a tree, I opened
them again."
Not long after leaving nearby
Hope School, the driver, ac-
cording to the Florida Highway
Patrol, experienced a sudden
medical event that caused him
to lose control of the microbus
as it traveled along Magno-
lia Road Tuesday afternoon in
Marianna.
The westbound bus crossed
the east lane, struck a guard rail,
toppled onto its side and slid
down the road embankment
before coming to-a stop.
What 15-year-old Shawaun
saw when he opened his eyes
were the confusion of a school
bus turned on its side, shocked
passengers struggling to get out
of their seat belts, and the chaos
of "book bags all over the floor."
That's when he went to work.
The bus had landed on the
driver's side, with the rear exit
door pinned by a tree and the
regular entry/exit doors posi-
tioned where the roof would
used to be.
Walking on windows now
under his feet, Shawaun made
his way to the aid of his fellow
passengers.
He helped them with their
belts, offered words of comfort


Hope School student Shawaun
Dortch helped his fellow students
after a school bus wreck.
and led them through the small,
square emergency exit portal
located in the vehicle's roof,
which was now more easily ac-
cessible due to the position of
the bus.
He guided students through
the wooded area and back up
the embankment, where they
could wait for help near the
road.
In addition to Shawaun, driv-
er Maurice Westmoreland Jr.
and bus monitor Dorothy Car-
penter, also on board were six
more students, including one
wheelchair-bound girl. Some
of the children, like Shawaun,
attend Jackson Alternative
School; some go to nearby Hope
School, a facility that special-
izes in teaching special-needs
students.
While he couldn't help the girl
in the wheelchair out of the bus,
Shawaun said he did try to calm
her while she waited for help to
arrive and free her. That help,
according to Jackson County


"I saw my little cousin in the
air. That's when I shut my
eyes."
y. .Shawaun Dortch,
Hope School student
Transportation Administrator
Phyllis Daniels, came in the
form of an unidentified "good
Samaritan" and the recovering
bus driver.
FHP and other agencies dis-
patched officers and EMS per-
sonnel to the scene. Passengers
were taken to Jackson Hos-
pital and released, with only
a few minor cuts and bruises
reported.
Daniels, who later watched
the entire incident as recorded
by the bus's onboard camera,
said the wreck happened very
quickly. But what followed was
a frightening sight.
"Shawaun had his bearings,
she said.
"He was a great assistant."
That video showed the wreck,
but it also showed a teenage
passenger, in a time of crisis,
step up and go about the task
of helping others, his actions
bringing comfort after 'what
could have been a tragic scene.
Shawaun had a hard time
sleeping that night and felt
spme pain in his back during
the days that followed, but he
says he and his cousin Caleb are
doing okay.
Shalonda Beachum, Sha-
waun's mother, after hearing
about the bus wreck and her
son's actions that followed, said
she's really proud of him.
"I hate that he was in the ac-
cident, but I'm grateful he was
there."


2013 CITY ELECTIONS


Cottondale, Marianna,


Sneads voters head to


the polls on Tuesday
BY ANGIE COOK


acook@jcfloridan.com
Tuesday is Election Day for
voters in three Jackson County
municipalities.
Registered voters in Cotton-
dale, Marianna and Sneads will
cast their ballots at their city's
respective polling location:
Cottondale Community Center,
Marianna City Hall or Sneads
City Hall. All polling locations
will be open from 7 a.m. to 7
p.m.
Sneads






Alexander Lewis

Voters will choose a
member to join the Sneads
Town Council and represent
Group IV. Running for the
council seat are Jerry Alexander
and Greg Lewis.


Ward Wise
Marianna
Ward 3 voters will choose be-
tween challenger Allen Ward
and incumbent James Wise to
decide who will occupy that
group's seat on the city com-
mission. And all city voters will
make a decision that could af-
fect their monthly power bill.
A ballot referendum will de-
cide if the local government can
proceed with a plan to create a
city-owned electric service.
According to the terms of a
recent settlement agreement
between the City of Marianna'
and its current power provider,
Florida Public Utilities Com-
pany, the city is poised to make
a multi-million dollar purchase
from FPU, buying the electric
power distribution system in-
side the city limits. FPU would
be contracted to continue its
operation and maintenance of
the system for several years af-
ter the time of purchase.


City Election Polling
Locations
Poll hours: 7a.m. to 7pm.
Tuesday, April 9
n Cottondale Community
Center
a Marianna City Hall
a Sneads City Hall

Those against the referendum
question Marianna's ability to
deliver lower electric rates to
its customers which the city
claims as its ultimate goal -
and fear the possibility of FPU
being forced to pass on the cost
of any lost Marianna revenue to
its customers residing outside
that city's limits.
Proponents of the measure
say Marianna customers could
be in for lower rates as well as a
voice (through contact with and
voting power over city commis-
sioners) in how rates are set and
any revenue surplus is used.
Municipal electric utility rates
are set by local governments,
while the Florida Public Service
Commission regulates the rates
of FPU and the four other inves-
tor-owned utilities in the state.
By eventuallyremoving profit-
driven entity FPU (a reseller of
power it buys elsewhere) from
the electric-buying process, the
city expects to lower rates for
Marianna customers by way of
direct negotiations with a bulk-
power provider. That end re-
quires the passage of Tuesday's
referendum.
Cottondale
Voters in Cottondale will de-
cide if they want to adopt an
'ordinance that contains sev-
eral amendments to the city
charter.
The two major changes would
be a drop in the number of town
council seats from seven to
five (currently only five seats
are filled), and.increasing the
length of a council member's
term from two to four years.
To vote in a municipal elec-
tion you must reside within
that city's legal limits.
There is no early voting for
these city elections, but unlike
in Cottondale and Sneads, Mar-
ianna voters do have the option
of filling out an absentee ballot.

When Can You Start Tapping Into Sources of Retirement Income?
When you retire, it would be convenient if all your expenses were to grow. But you will have to start taking withdrawals when you
"retire" as well. But they won't. In fact, you'll likely need between 80 percent .reach 702, if you haven't already done so.
and 100 percent of your pre-retirement income to maintain your standard
of living in retirement. And you may even need more, depending on what IRA As is the case with your 401(k), you will, in most cases, have
you plan to do during your retirement years. So, well before you retire, ask to pay a 10 percent tax penalty if you take distributions from your

401(k) plan If you have a 401(k) plan at work, take full advantage of
it. Your earnings have the potential to grow on a tax-deferred basis and
you typically contribute pre-tax dollars, so the more you put in, the lower
your adjusted annual taxable income. Generally, you have to be at least
59t2 to withdraw money from your 401(k) without incurring a penalty of
10 percent of the taxable amount of your withdrawal. However, you can
avoid this penalty under the following circumstances:
1. You leave your employer when you are at least 55 or you become
disabled.
2. You take a series of equal periodic payments, made at least
annually, for your life or life expectancy.
3. You "roll over" your 401(k) withdrawals into an IRA. Of course,
you may not want, or need, to tap into your 401(k) at either
age 55 or 59'2. If that's the case, you can leave your account
alone and, hopefully, watch it continue to have the potential to

Roth IRA, you face no mandatory distribution rules, so you never have to
touch the money, which means it can potentially grow tax-free for years.

Social Security You can start taking Social Security when you reach
62, but your monthly payments will only be about 70 percent to 75
percent the exact amount depends on your age of your payments if
you waited until your reached "full" retirement age, which is probably 66
or 67. (Social Security determines your full retirement age by your year of
birth.)

To most effectively incorporate your 401(k) and IRA withdrawals, and
your Social Security payments, into your retirement income, you'll need to
consult with your financial advisor. Also, to make sure you're not adversely
affecting your tax situation when you start taking these withdrawals and
payments, talk to your tax advisor. But don't wait until you're almost retired
to start planning for it. Your decisions on when to start taking withdrawals
from your various retirement accounts are usually irrevocable so you'll
want to get them right tlhe first time.

A smarter strategy
Tax breaks, subsidies and other publicly funded
"incentives" offered to private businesses in
hopes they will relocate or expand in a certain
area are a form of economic alchemy. Their success
rate is spotty, and too often the deals are cloaked in
secrecy.
However, it's also a game that everyone plays, from
the federal to the municipal levels. The key is to play
it smartly, which like any game includes not repeating
your mistakes.
Bay County appears to have learned from its biggest
blunder.
County commissioners on Tuesday voted unani-
mously to approve $360,000 in incentives for iSirona,
a local medical software company, to keep it here
and to add 300 full-time jobs to its workforce of 117.
The money serves as a 20 percent county match on a
total $1.8 million incentive package funded jointly by
Florida's Department of Economic Opportunity (DEO)
and the county. It's part of the state's Qualified Target
Industry Tax Refund program.
Although iSirona was founded in 2008 in Panama City,
it recently gained a new majority investor, Dr. Patrick
Soon-Shiong from Los Angeles, who is folding some of
his other companies into iSirona. The company wants
to expand, but the question is where that will occur.
Neal Wade, the executive director of the Bay County
Economic Development Alliance, said the county is
competing against communities in three other states to
have iSirona.
When the county gambled on incentives in 2011, it
lost its shirt.
Back then, state and local economic development
officials pressured the County Commission to ap-
prove giving $350,000 upfront to'Redpine Health Care
Technologies Inc., a medical billing software company.
The state provided an additional $400,000 in cash.
In exchange, Redpine was supposed to relocate its
headquarters from Spokane, Wash., to Bay County and
create 410 jobs.
But by the end of the year, RedPine's Bay County of-
fice was closed, and only five of a promised 44 jobs for
2011 had materialized. Since then, the company has
been dissolved and the county and state have been su-
ing to recover the taxpayers' money.
The county (and the state) made twograve errors:
They failed to do their due diligence on Redpine and
its weak financial, and they gave the company cash
upfront before a single job materialized.
The iSirona deal reflects the necessary changes made
in the wake of the Redpine debacle.
First, it's a local company that officials are familiar
with. It has a proven record of success. That's a better
risk than some outsider starting virtually from scratch.
In addition, the EDA has instituted a vetting committee
to review financial before a proposed deal goes to the
commission.
Second, iSirona has to earn the incentives based on
performance. Wade said the company first must create
the jobs and maintain them for at least a year. And then
only one-third of the incentives would be paid out ini-
tially, with the other payments stretched out over four
years, minimum.
The county's approval of the incentive package is no
guarantee that iSirona will stay, only that Bay remains
in contention. But if the company chooses Bay, the tax-
payers are in a stronger position and better protected
than they were two years ago.

Halftime report from the same of politics


A after 16 years in the Florida
Legislature, I was looking
L rward to spending my first
spring in as many years blissfully
ignorant of the.manic activity in our
state's capital. That was not to be.
In addition to media and speaking
requests, I have been overwhelmed
with pleas from former constitu-
ents and social media followers for
information, advice and a sympa-
thetic ear.
Truth be told, some people are
just addicted to politics and I
am one. Since I've been glued to
the happenings in Tallahassee, I
thought I might give a halftime re-
port at this midpoint in 'the 60-day
session.
Texting. More than a dozen legisla-
tors have attempted to enact laws
to ban texting while driving over the
past few years with little success.
Floridians are clamoring for the ban
in response to so many senseless
and preventable deaths. Let's hope
this is the year we join the growing
list of states that have this common-
sense law.
Water. Florida has a unique
ecosystem and can move between
drought and flood conditions
within a short period of time. We
were well on our way to responsible
water policy and funding to ensure
a safe and adequate water supply.
Unfortunately, over the past six
years, legislators have reversed that
progress and removed the fund-
ing. Adequate funding for water


-- -~ Y


resources needs to be a top priority
before irreparable harm is done to
our environment,
our agricultural
interests and our
quality of life.
Prisons. There are
more than 100,000
Paula adults in our state
Dockery prisons (not includ-
ing county jails,
federal prisons or
juvenile facilities) with an average
annual cost of $20,000 per inmate.
Some inmates are serving time
for driving on suspended licenses
when tAe underlying offense for the
suspension was failure to pay a fee
or fine, essentially creating debtors
prisons at a huge cost to indi-
viduals, their families and Florida
taxpayers.
Additionally, there are nonviolent
offenders who are serving time for
possession of small amounts of
marijuana. Is it really worth $20,000
per year to incarcerate them? Or to
house them with violent offenders
so they can learn the tricks of the
trade and graduate to more serious
offenses?
Let's apply common-sense poli-
cies to our criminal justice system
and adopt the Smart Justice reforms
that the Senate has passed but the
House has refused.
Teachers, Other State Employees.
Our teachers and other state em-
ployees have gone six years without
raises and were required last year to


start contributing 3 percent to their
retirement fund. It is way past time
to grant those raises.
Parent Trigger Bill. The Parent
Trigger bill has been rebranded as
the parent empowerment act; It
failed last year and it still stinks. Isn't
it ironic that every major parent
group is adamantly opposing a bill
that legislators are trying to sell as
parent empowerment? They didn't
ask for it and they don't want it. If
you want to empower parents, start
listening to them. Stop the relent-
less attempt to turn over more and
more of our public schools assets
to charter school organizations. If
parents want to convert to a charter,
they can do so without forcing it on
them. We should join Georgia, Colo-
rado and Oklahoma in rejecting this
wolf in sheep's clothing.
Sports Franchise Subsidies. This is
a banner year for sports franchise
subsidy requests. A House com-
mittee approved more than $150
million in new subsidies for the
Daytona International Speedway,
the Jacksonville Jaguars football
team and Major League Soccer.
Additionally, the Miami Dolphins
are asking for taxpayer dollars for
renovation of their stadium. This is
more corporate welfare that should
be rejected.

Paula Dockery was term-limited as a Republican
state senator from Lakeland after 16 years in
the Florida Legislature. She can be reached at

,Attach results of background check to drivers license


Shave been listening to
the latest thinly dis-
guised attempts at the
new gun grab called uni-
versal background checks.
A reasonable proposal,
according to the left. They
leave out the facts that
both Britain and Australia
and probably others down
through history, have used
this same ploy as an open-
ing gambit in the eventual
registration of all guns and
the confiscation of same
in a piecemeal, but very
effective, approach. They
usually, but not always,
fail to mention that this
confiscation is their final
goal.
I have a different idea
and I, too, think it is both
reasonable and it allays
fears of a de facto registra-
tion of guns and ammo.
Here is my proposal.
The Congress should
pass a law that requires the
states to set up a program
for background checks to
be done once and at-
tached to a person's drivers
license as an endorse-
ment, good for the life of
the license, 4 to 6 years
usually, and would have
to be renewed every time
the license was renewed.
Simple and it avoids the
possible tracking of indi-
vidual sales of every guri or
ammo purchase. After all,
we currently have to sub-
tnit to a check with every
purchase. If the left's intent
is to keep people with,
severe mental problems
from gun ownership, this
_Jwill have the desired effect.


Secondly in this legisla-
tion, I would propose that
if the individual chooses,
they could submit an ap-
proved gun safety course
completion certificate and
have another endorse-
ment added that would
give the license holder
concealed carry privileges
in all 50 states. The same
legislation could require
reciprocity throughout the
nation of each of the states
conceal carry permits just
like they must honor each
other's drivers licenses.
This is a reasonable com-
promise in that anyone
who wished to buy a legal
weapon would only have
to show his driver's license
to complete the deal and
the spectre of big brother
looking over our shoul-
der would be lessened.
Also the miasma that is
the patchwork that is the
current concealed carry
laws would be national-
ized under the Second
Amendment of the Con-
stitution. Also the decision
to submit to background
checks would be voluntary
and minimally intrusive.
Thank you for this forum.

Explaining the
Bermuda Triangle
For years the Bermuda
Triangle has been consid-
ered a mystery without a
definitive reasoning for
the occurances which
occurred in that region of
the world. What some of us


may not be aware of is that
there alsomight be other
regions of the globe which
also experience these type
occurances. Those regions
are located in areas in
which are experiencing
global polarized static.
Nicola Tesla claimed that
the Earth itself is polarized
with electric charge that
can be extracted from the
air.
When Charles Lindbergh
was making preparations
for the first Trans-Atlantic
flight on the Spirit of St
Ipuis, their team needed a
lightweight enegy source,
and a member of their
team, Hendershot, ap-
proached Tesla as Tesla
was near his death, and
asked Tesla his advise
on how this could be
done. Tesla explained the
global polarization field
to Hendershot, as well as
explained to Hendershot
how to extract this energy
and harness it. The result
was the Hendershot Gen-
erator.
Why does a compass
spin at certain times in the
Bermuda Triangle? The
answer to that question
is rather simple. Global
polarized static projects
equal charges of positive
and negative resulting in
magnetic north as being
unobtainable causing a
compass to not be able to
determine the direction of
magnetic north.
There are five known
states of matter. 1- solid;
2- liquid; 3- gas; 4- plasma;
5- micro.


The most common form
of micro matter we are all
aware of are microwaves
from a microwave oven.
Obviously friction is occur-
ing which results in a heat-
ing of whatever we put in
a microwave oven, so the
fact that matter is required
to create friction also
becomes obvious. This
friction is caused by mi-
cromatter, and the result is
the heating of what we put
in the oven. Other forms
of the fifth state of matter
are light and sound. Lasers
used to blast objects and
sonic blasters used to blast
kidney stones constitute
the presence of matter in
these two forms.
Why do ships and planes
disappear in the Bermuda
Triangle? It is claimed
by some that dark mat-
ter makes up 99% of the
universe. This is incorrect.
dark matter is contained
within 100 percent of the
matter in the universe, and
is in itself a fifth state mat-
ter. The reason we are not
able to see dark matter is
due to the presence of light
masking the dark matter.
All fifth state matters
have a variance deter-
mined by their frequency,
and Dark Matter is no
exception to this element.
We all know that time
travel exists, and we
know this because we have
an hour ago, and we have
now, as we live and breath
we travel through time.
The standard passage of
time is regulated by the
common denominator of


all matter which is dark
matter.
As global polarized
static effects the area of
the Bermuda Triangle, it
effects the density per-
centage of dark matter,
resulting in a variance of
frequency, which in the
case of dark matter equals
density, and the result of
this is a variance in the
standard passage of time.
As some ships and planes
passengers pass through
an effected area of dark
matter variance, they
experience this variance.
As some ships and planes
pass through the effected
area and do not exit the
area before the effect
disipates, they become
trapped in the frequency
of dark matter in which is
variant to the non-effected
standard of frequency, or
density, of dark matter,
and are not detectable to
us here in the standard fre-
quency, or density, of dark
matter. They still exist, but
in a different frequency, or
density, of dark matter.

Obama pay refusal
a hill of beans
In reference to the ban-
ner story in the April 4 edi-
tion about Obama sending
back a portion of his pay,
I could probably do that,
too, if I had taxpayer-pro-
vided housing, taxpayer-
provided food, taxpayer-
provided transportation
and taxpayer-provided


security. There are prob-
ably others that we pay for,
too, but those are the ones
that immediately come
to mind. Also, consider-
ing the money he gets for
speeches and other events,
it doesn't amount to a hill
of beans.

Thanks for random
act of kindness
On Wednesday, April
3, my mom, sister and
myself went to The Oaks
restaurant for lunch. When
I asked for the check, the
server told us that it had
already been paid. When I
asked by whom, the server
said she couldn't tell us,
because she promised not
to.
So, to the person at The
Oaks on Wednesday, April
3, around 1:30 pm that
paid our bill, we thank
you from the bottom of
our hearts and may your
kindness and generosity
be bestowed onto you ten-
fold, and may the good
Lord bless every day of you
life.
I have read and heard
about random acts of
kindness happening to
other people. Well, now *
you can add three more
from Jackson County to
the list. "We will pay it
forward."
So thank you again kind
stranger for making our
day, week, month and year.

SAVE ON IRA TAXES WITH CHARITY LOOPHOLE
Congress's New Year's Day tax session revived a helpful
gimmick that had expired, and even made it retroactive:
anyone 702 years old can make direct transfers from their
IRA to public charities of up to $100,000 tax-free! The tax
break was revived for both the 2012 and 2013 tax years.
Just as last time this break was extended so late. individuals
were given until January 31 of the following year to make a
transfer.
This is a good deal. The direct transfer allows you to
avoid taxes at your full tax rate on the amount transferred
from the IRA worth more taxwise than a charitable
deduction.
The money must come directly from the IRA account,
not through your own checking account. In a letter of
Instruction, tell your IRA custodian the dollar amount you
wal lto itransler and the charity's bank information: bank
tiname, federal wire routing numnlI)ber, account mulnber and
nalme,on account.

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
The ruling by U.S. District Judge Edward Korman of New
York. means consumers of any age could buy emergency
contraception without a prescription.-


WASHINGTON Presi-
dent Barack Obama
supports requiring girls
younger than 17 to see
a doctor before buying
the morning-after pill.
But fighting that battle in
court comes with its own
set of risks.
A federal judge in New
York on Friday ordered
the Food and Drug Ad-
ministration to lift age
restrictions on the sale of
emergency contraception,
ending the requirement
that buyers show proof
they're 17 or older if they
want to buy it without a
prescription.
The ruling accused the
Obama administration in
no uncertain terms of let-
ting the president's pend-
ing re-election cloud its
judgment when it set the
age limits in 2011.
"The motivation for the
secretary's action was
obviously political," U.S.
District Judge Edward Ko-
rman wrote in reference
to Health and Human Ser-
vices Secretary Kathleen
Sebelius, who made the
2011 decision.
If the Obama adminis-
tration appeals Korman's
ruling, it could re-ignite
the simmering battle over
women's reproductive
health, which is never far
from the surface in Ameri-
can politics. An appeal
also could sidetrack the
president just as he's try-
ing to keep Congress and
the public focused on gun
control, immigration and
resolving the nation's bud-
get woes.
"There's no political
advantage whatsoever,"
said Democratic strategist
Hank Sheinkopf. "It's a
side issue he doesn't need
to deal with right now.
The best idea is to leave it
alone."
Still, Obama has made
clear in the past that he
feels strongly about the
limits. As a politician


be a prompt decision.
The White House said
Obama's view on the is-
sue hasn't changed since

Another Century Pioneer
Family Farm recognized
The US Department of Agriculture and
Consumer Services recently recognized
another Century Pioneer Family Farm
in Jackson County, the 16th local family
to receive the honor since the program
began. Brothers Kenny and Harry
Dunaway and other family members
met USDA representative Susan Reese
on Good Friday at the Dunaway family
farm on Nubbin Ridge Road to receive
the large sign which signifies that honor.

have been in the same family for at least
100 years and still be in agricultural
use. The Dunaway farm joins 15 other
Jackson County designees. The others
are the farms of: Cary Joseph Pelt, James
L. Beauchamp, William and Faye Gable,
Charles Hagler, Ben Hall, Raymond Hart,
Max Hinson, Myra Phillips Hurst, David

Workshop to focus on satsumas


BY DEBORAH BUCKHALTER
dbuckhalter@jcfloridan.com

Because several Jackson
County residents have
been curious about what
it takes to establish a suc-
cessful satsuma grove,
Jackson County Horticul-
ture Agent Rob Trawick
has scheduled a free cit-
rus workshop this week
focused on satsumas.
It will be held Thursday,
April 11. Sign-in begins
at 7:30, with the program
running from 8 a.m. to 4
p.m.
Although there is no cost
associated with the pro-
gram, those who wish to
participate should reserve
.a spot by calling 482-9620
before the end of the busi-
ness day on Wednesday,
April 10. It is a sponsored
program, with lunch and
refreshments provided.
Trawick has lined up
a number of experts to
speak on the topic, and
the workshop will include

He said Friday that a regulations that maybe on


the horizon for those who
wish to sell their produce,
as well as information
about growing and caring
'for fruit trees that could be
useful to hobbyists as well
as potential commercial
producers.
"It's intended to give
everyone a realistic view
about what it takes to be
successful with satsumas,"
Trawick said. "There are a
lot of the things that most
people may not know.
For instance, you have to
have two irrigation lines
going to each tree-one to
water it and one for freeze
protection."
The seminar will also
cover potential problems
like disease and insect
worries, and some valu-
able information about
the USDA/FACS-driven
Good Agricultural Prac-
tices program.
Discussion about other
citrus appropriate for this
area is possible, but the
main focus will be on sat-

Friday
From Page 1A
tion, Smith talked of what
it takes to be an effective
leader and what it can
accomplish.
He likened the effects of
good leadership to an im-
age he's seen while look-
ing out the window aboard
airplanes en route from re-
mote impoverished areas
in Haiti back to the United
States. At first staring into
darkness, he began to- see
twinkling lights at ground
level as the plane flew over
Miami. The difference


that light made, he said,
reminded him of the light


that good
leadership
can cast on
a dark situa-
tion. "That's
what leader-
ship looks
like when
it's work-


ing right-a light in a dark
night." he said. "When you
find a light pushing back
darkness, you're going to
find a leader behind that
light."
Behind the light of hope
he found in Haiti, for in-
stance, he found a woman


who has given the last 40
years of her life to help-
ing orphans eat well, ob-
tain educations and build
foundations for a better
life. In short, she helped
them find hope.
True leadership, he said,
is fueled by an internal vi-
sion of what should be,
and the commitment to
see it through to fruition.
He encouraged people to
train themselves if neces-
sary for the tasks they need
to carry out in realizing
their leadership goals, and
to never quit trying once
they have their vision in
sight.

Six Americans, doctor


die in Afghan attacks


The Associated Press
KANDAHAR, Afghani-
stan Militants killed six
Americans and an Afghan
doctor in a pair of attacks
in Afghanistan on Satur-
day, the deadliest day for
the United States in the
war in eight months.
The violence hours
after the U.S. military's top
officer arrived for consul-
tations with Afghan and
U.S.-led coalition officials
- illustrates the instabil-
ity plaguing the nation as
foreign forces work to pull
nearly all their combat
troops out of the country
by the end of 2014.
The attacks came just
days after insurgents
stormed a courthouse,
killing more than 46 peo-
ple in one of the deadliest
attacks of the war, now in
its 12th year.
Three U.S. service mem-
bers, two U.S. civilians
and the doctor were killed
when a suicide bomber
detonated a car full of ex-
plosives in the south, of-
ficials said. The explosion
occurred just as a coalition
convoy drove past another
caravan of vehicles carry-
ing the governor of Zabul
province.

tary said in a statement.
It was the deadliest day
for Americans since Aug.
16, when seven American
service members were
killed in two attacks in
Kandahar province, the
birthplace of the Taliban
insurgency. Six were killed
when their helicopter was
shot down by insurgents
and one soldier died in a
roadside bomb explosion.
The latest attacks oc-
curred just hours after U.S.
Gen. Martin Dempsey,
the chairman of the Joint
Chiefs of Staff, landed


in Afghanistan for a visit
aimed at assessing the lev-
el of training that Ameri-
can troops can provide
to Afghan security forces
after international com-
bat forces complete their
withdrawal.
The two American civil-
ians killed included at least
one U.S. State Department
employee, according to
a U.S. official who spoke
on condition of anonym-
ity. Several other Ameri-
cans and Afghans, possi-
bly as many as nine, were
wounded, the official said.


EU: No deal reached
at nuclear talks with Iran


Briefs


ALMATY, Kazakhstan Iran and six
world powers failed to reach agreement
Saturday on how to reduce fears that Teh-
ran might use its nuclear technology to
make weapons, extending a series of in-
conclusive talks and adding to concerns
the diplomatic window on reaching a
deal with Tehran may soon close.
Expectations the negotiations were
making progress rose as an afternoon
session continued into the evening. But
comments by the two sides made clear
that they failed to make enough headway
to qualify the meeting as a success.


Mandela discharged
from the hospital
SJOHANNESBURG Former President
Nelson Mandela was discharged from a
hospital on Saturday following treatment
for pneumonia, the presidency said in
news that cheered South Africans who
had waited tensely for health updates on
a beloved national figure.
Mandela, the anti-apartheid leader who
spent 27 years in prison for opposing
white racist rule, was robust during his
decades as a public figure, with charisma,
a powerful memory and a talent for artic-
ulating the aspirations of his people.

The Marianna Lady Bulldogs
made easy work of the visiting
Walton Lady Braves on Fri-
day night, rolling up 17 hits
en-route to a 17-0 four-inning
victory.
The Lady Bulldogs got three
runs in the first inning, three in
the second, seven in the third,
and four more.in the fourth
to end the game on the mercy
rule.
With the victory, Marianna
completed a perfect district
season, improving to 4-0 in
District 1-4A and 14-3 overall.
In their four district wins, the
Lady Bulldogs have outscored
their opponents by a combined
score of 66-2.
MHS coach Scott Wiggins
said he was very pleased to


see his team make such an
emphatic statement in league
play this season.
"It's very satisfying to domi-
nate in your district. We just
want to continue on in the dis-
trict tournament 'in the play-
offs," he said. "I think we've
gotten better as the year has
gone on just being together
and playing more. I think it's a
combination of the work and
the dedication and commit-
ment the girls have put in this
year so far. You can see it pay-
ing off."
After winning their previous
matchup with Walton 14-ion
March 8, the Lady Bulldogs
were even more dominant Fri-
day, with senior slugger Whit-
ney Lipford one of four MHS
players with at least three hits,

Pirates destroy Altha

dkent@jcfloridan.com

The Sneads Pirates
bounced back from a dis-
appointing district loss
Thursday night to rout
the Altha Wildcats 15-0 in
five innings Friday night
in Altha.
The win improved the
Pirates' record to 12-8
overall and 8-2 in District
3-1A competition.
Brandon Moats started
on the mound and went
all five innings to get the
win for Sneads, with Cade
Hall highlighting a big of-
fensive night for the Pi-
rates with a home run.
It was an easy night
that was more than wel-
come for Sneads after a
heartbreaking loss to the
Vernon Yellowjackets on
Thursday night in Sneads,
as the Pirates squandered
a 3-0 lead, with Vernon ral-
lying to take the lead with
a three-run sixth inning
to preserve its perfect dis-
trict record and sweep the
season series with SHS.

Lady Pirates notch

impressive home

win over Baker
BY DUSTIN KENT
dkent@jcfloridan.com

The Sneads Lady Pirates made it three
wins in four days Friday night with a 7-3
home victory over Baker, snapping the Lady
Gators' seven-game winning streak in the
process.
Sneads (19-3) was coming off of a 1-0 road
win over North Florida Christian on Tuesday
night and a 6-0 home victory over district foe
Vernon on Thursday night.
In those two victories, it was the pitching of
Brooke Williams that was the catalyst, but the
Lady Pirates got the bats going Friday night,
notching 11 hits in total, including a three-
run home run by Alaynah Weiss in the fourth
inning.
The Lady Pirates got five runs in that in-
ning and added two more in the fifth thanks
to RBI singles by Brandy Strickland and Alex
Maphis.
BrandiWalden also had an RBI single in the
fourth for Sneads, and Williams scored Ma-
phis with an RBI sacrifice fly.
Baker got a run in the first inning thanks to
a SHS error, and then added two in the fifth
on a two-RBI single by Holly Stanley to cut
the Sneads lead to 5-3.

Commodores get win over Indians


BY DUSTIN KENT
dkent@jcfloridan.conm

The Gulf Coast State
Commodores put more
distance between second
and third place in the Pan-
handle Conference stand-
ings Friday at Chipola
Field, knocking off the
host Indians 4-1 to clinch
the three-game series and
move three games up for
the league's runner-up
spot.
Only the top two teams in
the Panhandle get a berth
to the state tournament
in Lakeland, and with Tal-
lahassee (11-1) comfort-
ably out in first, the race
for second becomes the
most intriguing subplot
through the second half of
the league schedule.
Friday's win put the
Commodores at 7-4 in the
conference, while the In-
dians fell to 4-7 thanks to
their second straight loss
to Gulf Coast.
After winning Thursday's
game 8-6, the Commo-
dores got a quality start
Friday from pitcher Brett
Maggard, who went sev-
en innings and allowed
one earned run on seven
hits, two walks and five
strikeouts.
Carlos Misell started and
took the loss for Chipola,
giving up four earned runs
on eight hits and two walks
with seven strikeouts in six
innings.
Tevin Johnson gave the
Commodores the early
lead with a solo home run
in the second inning off
of Misell on a 3-2 count,
and then Gulf Coast added
three more runs in the fifth
on an RBI double by Matt
Miller and a two-RBI dou-
ble by Tyler Dial to make it
4-0.
The Indians had oppor-

Lady Gators at bay most
of the night, limiting them
to just four hits and no
walks with seven strike-
outs to earn the win.
"I thought she pitched
one of her better games
tonight," Sneads coach
Kelvin Johnson said of
his sophomore pitcher.
"She's got real good com-
mand here lately. When
you only give a team

The Cottondale Hornets
got a strong start from
senior pitcher Ryan Mor-
rissey and a hot start of-
fensively to earn a 7-3 dis-
trict road victory over the
Ponce de Leon Pirates on
Friday night.
Morrissey went six in-
nings on the mound for
the Hornets and struck out
11 PDL batters, giving up
just two earned runs on six
hits and no walks to get the


victory. Fellow senior Aus-
tin Jackson closed it out
with a perfect seventh in-
ning of relief.
The Hornets scored
four runs in the first in-
ning and two more in the
third to jump out to a 6-
0 lead, with the Pirates
answering with a run in
the third and two in the
fifth to cut the margin in
half.
An RBI single by Wesley
Spooner in the sixth inning
gave the Hornets one more
insurance run, and the lead


was more than enough for
Morrissey and Jackson to
make hold up.
Spooner was 2-for-4 with
an RBI, while Willie Pippin
was 3-for-4 with two RBI,
Thomas Lipford and Jack-
son were both 2-for-4 with
an RBI.
Morrissey scored the
first Cottondale run of the
game when he led off with
a walk in the first, stole
second and third base, and
came home on a dropped
Austin Baxley fly ball.
Jackson's RBI single


scored Baxley to make it
2-0, and two batters later,
Pippin added a two-run
hit to push the lead to four
runs.
Lipford added an RBI
single in the third and
scored on a fielder's choice
to make it 6-0.
Cottondale improved to
3-6 in District 3-IA com-
petition with the win,
and will next play Mon-
day night at home against
Wewahitchka at 6 p.m.
for the Hornets' senior
night.


Malone rallies to beat Paxton


BY DUSTIN KENT
dkent@jcfloridan.com

The Malone Lady Tigers
came back from a 7-0 defi-
cit by posting eight total
runs in the final two in-
nings to pull off a miracu-
lous 8-7 comeback victory
over the Paxton Lady Bob-
cats on Thursday night in
Malone.
After three scoreless in-
nings, Paxton scored two
in the fourth and five in the
fifth to take a commanding
lead, but the Lady Tigers
answered back in the sixth
when Jakivia Hearns hit a
two-run home run to put
Malone on the board.
The Lady Tigers tacked
on another run in the sixth
to make it 7-3, and Hearns
brought home another run
in the seventh on an RBI
bunt single to score Tessa
Shack, who led off the in-
ning with a walk before
stealing second and third.
Sara Newsom also
walked and scored along
with Hearns on a two-RBI
double into left centerfield
by Jennifer Hewett to trim
the margin to 7-6.
That brought up Shey-
anna Chambliss, who dou-
bled to deep right center-
field to tie the game, and
then came around to score
after a pair of throwing er-
rors by Paxton to win the
game in walk-off fashion.
Malone improved to 5-6
overall and 3-6 in District
1-1A competition with the
_win, which snapped a two-
.


game league losing streak
and kept the Lady Tigers
alive for the No. 3 seed in
the district tournament.
"It's a big confidence
booster for us," Malone
coach Preston Roberts
said after the game. "I told
them I was very proud of
how they maintained their
composure and didn't
get down on each other
when we got behind. They
kept up their enthusiasm
throughout and I was
proud of that.
"That's something we've
been working on.:I don't
care if you're up by 10 or
down by 10; we need to
always be picking up one


another and encouraging
one another. We just have
to improve on not playing
from behind. We need to
try to get a lead and protect
it instead of always having
to come from behind."
Chambliss' big night led
the Lady Tigers offensively,
finishing 2-for-4 with two
doubles, three RBI, and a
run, while Hearns was 2-
for-4 with two runs and an
RBI, and Hewett was 2-for-
4 with a double, two runs
and an RBI.
Sabra Ctillifer had two
hits for Malone, with Kar-
rie Shack adding a hit and
a run, and Newsom walked
twice and scoring twice.

JACKSON COUNTY FLORIDAN www.jcfloridan.com


Dear Annie: My 17-year-old daughter,
"Kylie," has had behavioral problems
since she was 14. I am a single mother.
I work full time and also have two sons,
one of whom lives with his dad. Kylie
was in a hospital for three months for
various evaluations and recently lived in
a residential home. She was released last
October on the condition that she follow
the house rules, obey curfew, finish high
school, get a job and start looking at col-
leges. But Kylie never followed the rules.
She would go out on Friday night and
not return until Sunday morning. Every
time she broke parole conditions, it
would be reported. During this time, we
had family counseling, and an individual
clinician saw Kylie. They offered help
with resumes, job applications and social
activities.
In December, Kylie met a 24-year-old
man and ran off with him. This young
man.was discharged from the military
because of psychiatric issues. This scares
me to no end. Kylie is now considered
a missing person, although she's been
in contact via text, telling me to leave
her alone. There is a warrant out to take
them into custody. Since then, my home
has been robbed of clothing, food and
jewelry. I am sick over this.
Kylie will be 18 in two weeks. She has
no remorse for what she's done. People
tell me to let her go, but how? I am angry,
but I still love her. I am losing sleep, I'm
scared in my own home, my 10-year-old
can't sleep alone, my work is suffering,
and I'm a mess. I've talked to the police
and am doing my own detective work to
find her. I need help.
-WORRIED SICK IN CONNECTICUT
Dear Connecticut: You are living every
parent's nightmare. We don't expect you
to stop loving Kylie, hpjt you have another
child who needs your protection now.
For your own safety and that of your son,
it's time to let Kylie manage her own life,
good or bad, sink or swim. If you can


Bridge


Victoria Beckham, Posh Spice of the Spice
Girls and wife of soccer star David Beckham,
said, "I like a man who can be a real friend, has a
good sense of humor, a good pair of shoes and a
healthy gold card."
There are two words in that sentence that
4re very important for bridge experts: card and
sense. Experts are born with card sense, which
Is an understanding that because a player did
something it means that he has or has not got a
particular holding in that suit.
How would a South with card sense handle
this deal? He is in three no-trump. West leads
the spade four, dummy plays the three, and East
puts in his jack. What should declarer do?
When North tables his dummy, he experts
the contract to make easily. However, many a
declarer would go down. He would understand-
ably take the first trick, play a club to the king,
return to his hand with a diamond, and lead a
club to dummy's jack. Here, East would win
.with his queen and shift to a heart (best). Sup-
pose South takes the second heart. If he then
runs diamonds, he squeezes East. But declarer
probably tries the clubs, after which he cannot
recover.
Instead, South should try for these nine win-
ners: two spades, one heart, four diamonds and
two clubs. But how should he play the spades?
Go back to trick one. East's card was the jack.
When third hand is playing the highest card so
far in the trick, he plays the bottom of equal
cards. So West must have the spade 10. After
taking the first trick, South immediately leads a
spade to dummy's eight. When it pulls out the
king, declarer has his nine tricks.


send her a text message, let her know
you love her and wish her well, but she's
on her own. If she is using house keys to
steal from you, change your locks. Report
any break-ins to the police. And please
get some emotional support for yourself
at Because I Love You (bily.org).

Dear Annie: I have relatives who cannot
discuss certain topics without flying into
a rage. I usually try not to engage, but it
still hurts when they attack my beliefs
and opinions.
How do I get them to calm down? I
sometimes think it would be better if I
cut them off completely. Your advice?
MINNESOTA
Dear Minnesota: If these are distant
relatives, we recommend you avoid them
as much as possible. If you are forced
to be in their company, do not converse
with them beyond superficial pleasant-
ries. You are not obligated to respond
to every question asked of you, and it
would help if you didn't take their com-
ments so personally. People who cannot
control themselves while socializing
have anger management issues. If things
get out of hand, say goodbye and walk
out the door.

Dear Annie: You were too nice to "Wash-
ington," who had borrowed money
from her in-laws to help pay for her two
daughters' weddings and then borrowed
more when her husband lost his job. She
didn't tell the brides because she wanted
them to glory in their wedding days with-
out any stress. Then she was upset when
her in-laws did not send Christmas gifts
to the daughters.
"Washington" sounds as though she
has a huge sense of entitlement, which
she also seems to be fostering in her
daughters. I would have told her to grow
up and stop borrowing money for things
like weddings.

Nick Carter says wedding may be on TV
NEW YORK- Nick Carter could bring his wed-
ding to the small screen.
The Backstreet Boys singer proposed to fitness
trainer Lauren Kitt in February, and he says their
marriage could be filmed for a TV special.
"There have been offers and opportunities to
film the actually wedding, like a TV show," the 33-
year-old said in a recent interview.
"I was up for it to a certain degree, but then at the
same time, I might not even do that. We might just
keep it private. We'll see what's up."

Natures


Back in the 1950s
and early '60s,
the older folks
called him "pond crane."
They lumped him into a
category that included
all birds with long beaks,
long legs, and long necks
that waded shorelines in
search of food.
I was well into my teens
when I learned this par-
ticular misnamed pond
crane was, in reality, the
great blue heron, a wildlife
species that always im-
pressed me and one I have
come to regard with deep
admiration and respect.
Some critters and birds
just plain have a special
place in my heart. The
great blue is one of these.
The sight of a great blue
50 years ago was extreme-
ly exciting. It was also
something of a novelty.
The widespread use of
highly toxic agricultural
pesticides and indiscrimi-
nate killing had reduced
the birds to low numbers
in many areas.
"Thankfully," said
wildlife biologist Rick
Claybrook, "wildlife
conservation efforts have

and other wading birds to
stable populations. Today
the sight of these beauti-
ful birds is quite common
on rivers, lakes, and other

The great blue heron
is the most widespread
heron in North America
and also the largest,
standing almost four feet
tall with a wingspan of
nearly six feet. Despite its
size, an adult bird weighs
only about five pounds,
due to its thin, hollow
bones. This weight-reduc-

the bird's getting airborne

"At this time," Claybrook

They construct large

green eggs and incubation
takes about four weeks.

of blue herons and other
wading birds is once again
common in the wetlands
of the Americas, par-


ticularly the South, where
they thrive in the warm
climate and the abundant
waterways.
"More importantly,"
Claybrook concluded,
"good numbers of these
beautiful birds are indica-
tive of a healthy, stable
natural environment. The
sight of one is always good
news."

Lady Tigers taken 2nd straight over Altha


BY DUSTIN KENT
dkent@jcfloridan.com

For the second time in
three days, the Graceville
Lady Tigers knocked off
the Altha Lady Wildcats on
Thursday night and picked
up their third consecutive
District 3-1A victory in the
process, winning 7-1 at
home after taking a 17-5
victory Tuesday in Altha.
Thursday's contest was
far more competitive than
Thursday's runaway GHS
win, with the Lady Tigers
leading just 3-1 through
four innings.


But Graceville tacked
on two runs in the fifth
and two more in the sixth
to pull away, with senior
pitcher Taylor McDaniel
carrying the Lady Tigers
home with a stellar effort
in the circle.
McDaniel went all seven
innings and surrendered
just one earned run on two
hits and no walks with five
strikeouts, while also pick-
ing up two hits at the plate,
including a double:.
Kaylee Vaughn had an-
other big day to lead'the
way for GHS, following up
her 4-for-4 performance


Tuesday with three more
hits Thursday, including a
double and two RBIs.
Briana Henderson and
Jossie Barefield also had
three hits each for the Lady
Tigers, with Caitlin Miller
going 2-for-3 with a run
and two RBIs, and Hunter
McDaniel and Madison
McDaniel each picking up
two hits and scoring a run.
Freshman Dominique
Robinson also walked
twice and scored a run.
Graceville (6-9 overall
and 6-6 in district) will

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.
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 ourquality 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.
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.

Lake Seminole
Bass fishing is fair and bed-
ding activity continues. Stay
with the backwater shallows
and main-lake sandbars.
Texas-rigged lizards are
recommended baits. When
targeting bedding fish, be
patient and make accurate
casts. The bedding bass must
be "aggravated" into striking.
Crappies continue fair to
good, particularly on live
minnows. Reports say num-
bers may be down a bit, but
individual fish size is excel-
lent as a rule.
Bream, especially shell-
crackers, are still active.
Red wigglers are good bait
offerings.
Catfishing is slow at
present.

Lake Eufaula
Bass fishing is good all over
the lake with creek mouths
being the hottest target areas.
Floating worms in grass and
wood structure is a good pat-
tern. Fishing the creek banks
with slow-rolled spinnerbaits


Fishing Report
is a good technique as the
water warms later in the day
and the fish move shallow.
Bream fishing is good.
Shellcrackers are biting well
and should remain reason-
ably active for a time. Right
now they are in three to eight
feet of water near live wood
structure.
Look for bream action to
continue being good as water
keeps warming.
Crappies are fair and
mdst fish are deep. The best
catches will come from ledges
in 15 to 25 feet of water. Small
jigging spoons are good bait
choices.
Hybrids are slow, though
some may be caught trolling
over shallow sandbars.
Catfish are slow to fair in
isolated spots.

Lake Andrews/
Chattahoochee River
Bream fishing is fair to
good. Drift along the bluff
walls with crickets and worms
on very light line. Bluegills
and shell crackers will take


them readily. Also look for
beds in shallow sandbar
areas. Shellcrackers and
redbreasts are showing bed-
ding activity and bluegills are
active as well. Panfish are also
biting for some anglers up the
creeks.
Bass are good, especially
near the creek mouths and a
short distance up the creeks.
Up the creeks, fish jerkbaits,
small Texas-rig worms, and
shallow-running crankbaits.
At he creek mouths, deep-
running crankbaits are not
bad. On ledges in the river
proper, try jig-and-pig com-
bos for the occasional big
fish.
Crappies are slow, though
some may be caught near the
dams at night.
Catfish are fair and hybrids
continue to show some activ-
ity in the tailwaters.

Faith Moore scoring twice.
Kayleigh Temples started

win, allowing seven hits
and a walk while striking
out three.
Laura Hydle and Kayla
Jackson had two hits each
to lead Walton.


Hydle started in the circle
and took the loss, striking
out three.
Marianna had already
clinched the top seed in
district before Friday's
win, meaning the Lady
Bulldogs get a bye into the
district tournament cham-
pionship game and an
automatic berth in the 4A
playoffs.
The season has been an
unqualified success thus
far, but Wiggins said his
team can still go to a differ-
ent level.
"I think we're playing
pretty good, but we've
got some room for a few
improvements here and
there," he said.
"Overall, the girls are
playing well and doing the
little things to win games,
but I think we can still get
better. I hope we're peak-
ing next week going into
the playoffs. We have to
stay hungry and keep
working."

,f-j//arianna electric rates have

_ : been too high for way too

long. The upcoming referendum asks

residents whether to purchase the

system and take control of the future.

A City-owned system can lower

electric rates, hold the line on taxes

and keep our money right where it

belongs...invested in our community.


34 other Florida cities successfully

run their own electric system

including Blountstown, Quincy and

Chattahoochee. This is our chance

to control our own electric too.


Lower Electric Rates

FPU rates are much higher than the state average

and that means every home and business is paying

too much. City-owned electric can give you great

service with lower rates.


Hold the Line on Taxes

The current system is owned by out-of-state

shareholders who pocket the money they make

selling you electricity. If the City buys the system, that

money can help pay for roads, police, fire, and parks

instead.. .even after electric rates are lowered.


More Control

Today all the decisions about electric rates and

money are made in Tallahassee and the FPU

boardroom.The electric purchase would put you

and your City Commission in control.


Independently of any committee.
