Case management nearing set in exhumation lawsuit


BY DEBORAH BUCKHALTER
dbuckhalter@jcfloridan.com
A case management hear-
ing is set for 9 a.m. Monday in
the state's lawsuit seeking per-
mission to exhume remains at
Dozier School for Boys, where
approximately 50 young people
are believed to be buried in the
now-closed facility's "Boot Hill"
cemetery.
The suit was filed by Attor-
ney General Pam Bondi several
weeks ago. The county subse-
quently filed a motion to become
an intervening party in the case,
and is expected to be represent-
ed Monday by county attorney
Frank Baker.
Medical Examiner Michael


Hunter would take over the ex-
humation process if it is autho-
rized by the court. His quest is
to identify remains, determine
whether any of the deaths ap-
pear to be of a suspicious na-
ture, and if possible to otherwise
build on the sometimes conflict-
ing base of information related
to the deaths.
The exhumation request was
filed after a University of South
Florida professor began exam-
ining the Dozier grounds in an
attempt to answer lingering
questions about its burial site.
For decades, there has been
speculation about the accuracy
See LAWSUIT, Page 7A


Texas resident Judy Weese
straightens one of the signs that
she and husband Sam Weese
placed, along with some flowers,
against the exterior fence at Dozier
School for Boys last Saturday. Mr.
Weese said he lived at Dozier for
2-3 years as a teenager. He said he
decided to come to Dozier and leave
the signs and flowers as a message
to decision-makers. He said he put
the materials there to encourage
the state to continue its quest to
exhume the remains of the boys
who were buried at Dozier decades
ago and to have them re-interred at
locations of their families' choosing.
"I'm trying to say, let them go
home:' he said Thursday..

FLY- IN FOR SOME FUN


MARKSKINNER/FLORIDAN
im Corky from Panama City gives his plane, an electrically-powered ducted fan aircraft made out
of dense Styrofoam, a little assistance in getting airborne at a Chipola R/C Aviators Fly-In last year.
He normally hand launches this plane and lands it on its belly because it lacks wheels for takeoffs
and landings. The Chipola R/C Aviators will be having a fly-in on Saturday, April 20, from 9 a.m.'until 2
p.m. at the model plane field next to the Marianna Municipal Airport. Admission is free and open to the
general public, but a box will be set up at the exit for people who wish to make a suggested voluntary
donation of $2 as they leave the event. Additionally, the club will have food for sale. There will be
several raffle drawings for donated prizes. The club anticipates thatbetween 20-30,radio-control
airplanes will be used in demonstration flights at the event. Time will be set aside around noon for
spectators to look at the planes on the ground and talk with the owners.

Sheriff's Antique & Classic Car Show returns


Benefit for youth
ranch program

From staff reports
Returning for a third year, the Jackson
County Sheriff's Office Antique & Classic
Car Show rolls into Marianna's Citizens
Lodge Par4 next weekend.
The Sheriff's car show (with trucks and

like to give.
Car Best of Show, Truck Best of Show

Pilot Club is having a busy year
Special to the Floridan I


This has been a busy year
for The Pilot Club of Mari-
anna so far; they welcomed
three new members, host-
ed a Mardi Gras dance at
Hope School in Mariarina
and held a luncheon for
the volunteers with Habi-
tat for Humanity.
The newest members
that were installed to Pi-
lot are Jennifer Griffin,
Lindsay May and Dr. Stacy
Nichols-Byll. The Pilot
Club welcomes these new
members and appreciates
them being a part of their
organization.
On March 8 the Pilots
hosted a Mardi Gras party
for students and faculty at
Hope School in Marianna.
Members set up decora-
tions and refreshments for
everyone to enjoy. The Pi-
lot Club is grateful to Hope
School for allowing them
to be part of such a fun
event.
SOn March 12 the Pi-
lot Club held a luncheon
for Habitat for Human-
ity volunteers that helped
to build a new Habitat
House. The student volun-
teers traveled all the way
from Blackburn University
in Illinois for their spring
break, not to go to the
beach, but rather to give
their time to help a fam-
ily in need have a place to
call home. The Pilot Club
appreciates the hard work
and dedication shown by
all of the students and oth-
er volunteers.

Farm Credit distributes


$1.25 million in profits


Special to the Floridan

The Board of Directors
of Farm Credit, of North-
west Florida has declared
a patronage refund of
$1.25 million. "The pa-
tronage refund is a form of
profit sharing that distin-
guishes Farm Credit from
other lenders," said Board
Chairman, Richard Terry,
a Madison County farmer.
"We're delighted that the
association performed
well this past year,and
that Farm Credit of North-
west Florida customers
have the opportunity to
share in that success,"
said Rick Bitner, President
and CEO. "Profit sharing
is one of the unique and
tangible benefits of doing
business with a customer-
owned cooperative."
Patronage distribution
essentially reduces the
cost of borrowing money.
- Since 1988, Farm Credit of
Northwest Florida Mem-
bers have benefited from
more than $72 million
of patronage refunds or
profit-sharing declared by

"We have been, and
strive to remain a strong
and valuable source of
funding for Agriculture
and our rural communi-
ties, through the good
times and bad," Bitner
said. "Agriculture is the
second largest industry in
the state, ranking behind
only tourism. Farm Credit
of Northwest Florida is
proud to provide a stable,
reliable source of credit to
rural America," said Rich-
ard Terry.

[I [4 BCF Male Chorale Spring Toir under way


SUBMITTED PHOTO
Members of the BCF Male Chorale performed during their recent Spring Tour in
Alabama and Louisiana.


Special to the Floridan

For more than 25 years, members of the
Male Chorale at The Baptist College of Florida
in Graceville have delighted audiences as they
proclaimed the gospel with their voices. Led-
by BCF Music andWorship Division Chair Bill
Davis, the inspirational and talented group is
making its way to Texas.
This year's Male Chorale Spring Tour con-
sisted of concerts in Mobile, Ala., at Wo-
odridge Baptist Church, and in New Orleans,
La., at New Orleans Baptist Theological Semi-
nary. Along with those stops, the Chorale lead
worship and performed a special concert for
the prisoners at the Louisiana State Peniten-
tiary. The all-male company performed their
last two concerts on April 7, one at First Bap-
tist Church in Henderson, Texas, and then an
evening concert at the First Baptist Church of
Ruston, La.


The Male Chorale is dedicated to using their
incredible vocal talents for the glory of God.
The variety of songs presented by the group
range from contemporary praise and worship
music to more traditional hymn favorites. The
selected pieces allow the chorale to share the
gospel with various age groups and in many
diverse venues in unique ways. The encour-
aging and gifted group of men performed a
number of their familiar favorites including,
"Total Praise" and "Midnight Cry," as well as
a few new more contemporary musical com-
positions. From the opening praise song to
the final blessing, the concerts performed by
the Male Chorale have always warmed the
heart and left listeners with a sense of awe
and inspiration.
For more information on the Male Chorale
Spring Tour or to schedule an event, call the
Music and Worship Division at 800-328-2660
ext. 427.

ell describes the purpose
of dreams and visions in
the Old Testament era
and how God used them
to communicate to his
people. In many instanc-
es, God used dreams and
visions to send some type
of warning or revelation
of God's character or will.
The article' enrphasizes
.dreams and visions as a
key method in which the
Old Testament- people
experienced God.
When it comes to Godre-
lating to us in the Old Tes-
tament via dreams and vi-
sions, Newell writes "God


may still speak through
a dream or vision. If He
does so, we can be as-
sured He will not contra-
dict what he has spoken
through the written Word
or the living Word."
This was not the first
time that the BCF Profes-
sor has been invited to
write for the Illustrator,
.having been published
more than 16 times prior
in the prestigious maga-
zine: Newell's commen-
tary will appear fn the
Summer 2013, Vol. 39, 4th
edition.
The Biblical Illustrator
is published quarterly by
LifeWay Christian Re-
sources of the Southern
Baptist Convention and
is intended to supple-
ment the Sunday School
lessons. Each article is
based directly on the pas-
sages studied in the Sun-
day School material and
Biblical scholars such as
Professor Newell are re-
quested to comment and
offer insight.

St. Lukes plans history suppers


Special to the Floridan

Parishioners of St. Luke's
Episcopal Church in Mari-
anna embraced several
long-standing Easter tradi-
tions on March 31 as they
continued their 175th year
birthday celebration. An
abundance of Easter lilies
filled the sanctuary as usu-
al. Young acolyte reached
high to light the Pascal
Candle. Father Bray's ser-
mon was inspiring and the
music of the pipe organ
and choir was wonderful.
Children were thrilled to
ring the Sanctus Bells as
their usual part in the ser-
vice. However on Easter
there was more for them to
do. The "flowering of the
cross" was accomplished
with a variety of fresh flow-
ers that had been clutched
in small hands until the
proper moment at the end
of the service.
After- the annual Easter
covered-dish luncheon,
the traditional Easter egg
hunt was held for the chil-
dren in the churchyard.
Parishioners will hold
monthly covered-dish fel-
lowship suppers to take a
look back at their 175 year
history. The first one will

be on Wednesday, April
17, at 6 p.m. in MacKin-
non Hall. The tradition
of Easter egg hunts, going
back to at least to the late
1930s, will be a topic of dis-
cussion. Those interested
in St. Luke's history are in-
vited to bring their favorite
dish and attend.
Older parishioners re-
member egg hunts on the
grounds of the first rectory,
a large,three story dwell-
ing that stood on land
occupied by the present
education building and
parish hall. Real hard-
boiled chicken eggs were
dyed in pastel colors and


well hidden in the lush
Florida vegetation. Some
were so well hidden that
they escaped detection
until months later. It was
a thrill to find the "golden
egg" wrapped in gold foil
and to receive the reward;
a dollar. It was also fun to
peel and eat the eggs from
the Easter baskets after the
hunt was over. After the
rectory was torn down in
the 1960s, Easter egg hunts
were held in the yard of the
MacKinnon's home across
Lafayette Street from St.
Luke's. This yard was a
wonderful location for the
egg hunt but was eventual-


ly abandoned around 1995
because of concerns about
the highway traffic in front.
The Easter egg hunt moved
back across the street to
the churchyard where it is
now held. Real eggs have
been replaced by brightly
colored plastic ones, yet St.
Luke's children still enjoy
the thrill of "the hunt" and
filling a basket full of eggs.

Dear Bruce: My dad is
getting divorced. He and
this wife were married
only five years. They have
no children together and
own no property together.
The property they lived
on is in her name. He re-
ceives a monthly Social
Security disability check.
Will his ex-wife be entitled
to any of that money?
-- CONCERNED IN
NEWYORK
Dear Concerned: The
only income that your
father has is his monthly
SSocial Security disability. I
can't imagine how his wife


can be entitled to any of
that money The fact that
they had
a relative-

marriage
is a con-
tributing
Bruce factor. The
Williams important
thing is,
they have

SBA Economic Injury
Disaster Loans are avail-
able to area counties due
to frost, excessive rain,
flooding, flash flooding
and high winds from Feb-
ruary 4-March 4. Holmes
and Washington Counties
are the primary counties
and the contiguous coun-
ties include: Bay, Jackson
and Walton. The deadline
for filing an application is
December 13.
Economic Injury Di-
saster Loans are working
capital loans to help small
businesses, small agricul-
tural cooperatives, small
businesses engaged in
aquaculture and most pri-
vate, non-profit organiza-
tions of all sizes meet their
ordinary and necessary
financial obligations that
cannot be met as a direct
result of the disaster. These
loans are intended to assist
through the disaster recov-'
eryperiod. EIDL assistance
is available only to entities
and their owners who can-
not provide for their own
recovery from non-gov-
ernment sources as deter-
mined by the U.S. Small
Business Administration.
Credit Requirements
C Credit History-Appli-
cants must have a credit
history acceptable to SBA.
) Repayment-SBA eco-
nomic injury assistance is
in the form of loans. Appli-


cants must show the abil-
ity to repay the loan.
) Collateral-Collateral is
required for all EIDLs over
$5,000. SBA takes real es-
tate as collateral when it is
available. SBA will not de-
cline a loan for lack of col-
lateral, but SBA will require
the borrower to pledge col-
lateral that is available.
The interest rate is deter-
mined by formulas set by
law and is fixed for the life
of the loan. The maximum
interest rate for this pro-
gram is 4 percent.
The law authorizes loan
terms up to a maximum
of 30 years. SBA will de-
termine an appropri-
ate installment payment
based on the financial
condition of each bor-
rower, which in turn will
determine the loan term.
The law limits EIDLs to
$2,000,000 for alleviating
economic injury caused by
the disaster.
The actual amount of
each loan is limited to the
economic injury deter-
mined by SBA, less busi-
ness interruption insur-
ance and other recoveries
up to the administrative
lending limit.
SBA also considers po-,
tential contributions that
are available from the busi-
ness and/or its owners) or
affiliates. If a business is a
major source of employ-
ment, SBA has the author-
ity to waive the $2,000,000
statutory limit.


Loan Eligibility
Restrictions
) The applicant business
must be located in the de-
clared disaster area.
) Only uninsured or oth-
erwise uncompensated di-
saster losses are eligible.
) The economic injury
must have been the di-
rect result of the declared
disaster.
) Nurseries are only
eligible for economic in-
jury caused by declared
drought disasters.
) Small businesses en-
gaged in aquaculture are
eligible.
) By law, agricultural
enterprises such as farm-
ers and ranchers are not
eligible for any type of SBA
assistance.
) Applicants who have
not complied with the
terms of previous SBA
loans are not eligible. This
includes borrowers who
did not maintain flood
and/or hazard insurance
on previous SBA or Feder-
ally insured loans.

ers cannot meet necessary
financial obligations due
to the disaster. This deter-
mination is made by SBA.

Dealing with ineffective staff can h

be the toughest business challenge hl
*-*'~ ~ ~ ii'fSK~fS'fl-


he No. 1 question
entrepreneurs ask
me is, "What do I
need to do to be success-
ful in running my small
business?" You might
imagine a million ways to
answer this question, but
there is one thing every
small business must have
in order to be successful.
This is a great staff.
Having a great staff
allows your firm to blos-
som and succeed. Every
entrepreneur must devote
a considerable about of
time to finding the right
people and work con-
stantly at maintaining a
great staff. This is not an
easy process, particularly
for small business owners.
Often I see small busi-
nesses with mediocre
staff simply because the
owners lack the energy
or will to change or train
staff. It's a classic mistake
- one that can be fixed,
but it requires effort and a
renewed commitment to
success.
Replacing an ineffec-
tive worker seems like an
obvious and easy solution,
but it is difficult for many
owners. Why? Because in
small businesses, the staff
is usually very close.
One entrepreneur I
counseled had an office
manager who'd worked
for him for more than 10
years. However, she was
totally ineffective in that
role. The entrepreneur
was fully aware of this, but


he felt that he would lose
a part of his family if he
fired her.
I worked
S veryhard

Jerry preneur to
Oster take action
yOum g for the good
of his busi-
ness, but every time he got
close to letting her go, he
reneged at the last minute.
I finally got so exasperat-
ed with him that I enlisted
the help of his wife. The
two of us double-teamed
him and convinced him
this employee was poison
to the firm. He finally
admitted he had to let the
office manager go, but it
was hard.
It has been two
years since her dismissal,
and the owner often tells
me that he does not
know why it took him
so long to make this
decision.
Most entrepreneurs un-
derstand which employ-
ees are liabilities to their
firms. Ultimately, ifyou
would not rehire a worker,
then you should let them
go. It is easy enough to
say that, but finding the
right time to deal with a
problem employee is the
tough part.
What I've found works
best is to ask the entrepre-
neur what type of aberrant
behavior they are willing
to tolerate and for how

long. Sometimes I just
have to be blunt and ask
if avoiding an unpleasant
situation is worth the cost
of keeping a mediocre
employee in place.
All businesses have
unproductive workers.
Go out, look at your staff
and identify yours. Then
analyze the economics
of keeping them. If you
decide to keep them, ask
yourself what psycho-
logical fear is keeping
you from letting them go.
Typically, this allows the
real fear to surface so you
are able to make a unemo-
tional decision.
You can do this!

S'DS OF A FEATHER


MARKSKINNER/FLORIDAN
A after getting tired of swimming and flying, this pair of Canadian geese decided.
to try strolling Tuesday. Like many Canadians, geese like to spend the winter
in the panhandle; however there is permanent year round population of the
birds in Florida. These two were sighted eating grass near a pond on Old Spanish
Trail in Sneads.




Chipola Spring Ensemble Concert is April 16


SSpecial to the Floridan

Chipola College will present its
Spring Ensemble Concert Tuesday,
April 16 at 7 p.m. in the Center for
the Arts. The free concert will fea-
ture the Chipola Rock and Jazz
Band directed by Dr. Daniel Powell
and the Chipola Chamber Chorus
and Community Chorus directed
by Dale Heidebrecht.
.The Community, Chorus will
again join the Chamber Chorus
singing in Russian, German, Lat-
in and a little bit of English. One
piece has no word, but will fea-
ture Indian sounds. Another piece
will be in the original Bebma
(Chibemba) language spoken in
Zambia.
The Jazz Band will close the con-
cert with music in the funk, swing,
rock, Latin and popular styles.
Director Dr. Daniel Powell says,
"These professionals have worked
hard all semester to raise the bar
on this knock out concert. These
students have been stretched and
pulled to reach the height of their

of the Dozier records as to
who is buried at the site
and how they died, and
some have also publicly
wondered whether any
criminal wrongdoing was
behind any of the deaths.
The professors work has
centered on determining
the number and locations
of grave sites.
AG attorney Nicholas
Cox requested the man-
agement hearing this
week after appearing be-
fore Jackson County Com-
missioners on Tuesday to
explain the state's reasons
for requesting court ap-
proval of the exhuma-
tion. Cox also apologized
to commissioners for not
contacting them prior to
the AG's filing of the law-
suit; and told board mem-
bers the state wishes to
partner with the county in


Burglaries

into that jurisdiction.
In that instance, guns,
jewelry and electronics
were taken.
The other burglary oc-
curred on Barber Road
in Washington County.
Several guns and a four-
wheeler were taken in that
incident.
In the wake of these
burglaries, Washington
County Sheriff Bobby
Haddock issued some tips
on what residents can do
to reduce the chances
of being victimized by
would-be thieves.
"Plan to 'burglarize'
your house yourself," he
suggested. "You'll discover


talent and will leave you wonder-
ing why you should ever travel


attempting to resolve the
long-standing controversy
and reportedly conflict-
ing records related to the
burial site.
He said several times
in the meeting that the
county would not be held
financially responsible for
any of the costs associated
with the' probe, a matter
board members had ex-
pressed concerns about.
The state, he said, wish-
es to exhume the entire
known cemetery and re-
inter the remains at sites
chosen by the families of
the deceased who can be
identified by mitochon-
drial DNA testing or other
means.
Any remains not identi-
fied would be re-interred
at a location yet to be de-
cided, but the cemetery
at Dozier would likely be
cleared in the process
under the state's desired
plan, Cox said. The state
also wishes to determine


any weaknesses in your
security system that may
have previously escaped
your notice."
He said most home bur-
Sglaries are carried oUt by
amateurs; therefore, he
said, taking some simple
precautions can help.
) Lock your house if
you leave, even for a few
moments.
) Change all the locks
when you move into a new
home.
n Use timers to switch
lights and radios on and
off when you're not home,
and take other measures
to make your home ap-
pear occupied at all times.
) Be careful about turn-
ing over your keys to a
service provider, check-
ing references and tak-


whether an additional
cemetery exists. National,
state and local repre-
sentatives of the NAACP
contend that the matter
bears full examination,
based on the possibility
that Dozier may have fol-
lowed society's practice of
segregating cemeteries.
The known Dozier grave-
yard is marked only by
symbolic crosses placed
in the area by a Boy Scout
troop years after the last
person was buried there.
The USF professor's probe
indicates that the crosses
don't necessarily line up
with actual graves, and her
findings also indicate that
there may be burial shafts
at locations outside the
border of the area marked
by crosses.
County officials have
expressed doubts about
whether exhumation'
would result in a signifi-
cant number of identifi-
cations, pointing out that,


ing other steps to be sure
that the person is honest
and reputable before you
do so. Check with the Bet-
ter Business Bureau to
check out a company's
reputation.
) Don't leave notes,
for service people or
others on the door. "These
act as a welcome mat
for a burglar," Haddock
stated.
) If entrances to your
home are dark, consider
installing lighting with an
infrared detector. Most
thieves will be deterred
by the presence of such
systems.
) Work with your neigh-
bors; talk to each other
about any suspicious
people or cars seen in the
area.

so far, the state has only
been able to make con-
tact with the families of
eight boys believed to be
buried in the cemetery.
Without descendant DNA
to compare, some of them
say, the state may never be
able to accomplish that
goal and will spend many
tax dollars in what may be
a futile attempt. The state
is seeking a legislative ap-
propriation to further the
work, as well as grants and
other sources.
Cox told board members
this week that Bondi was
moved to seek permission
for the process in part be-
cause of a visit from Glenn
Varnados, the nephew of
one of the boys believed
buried at Dozier. He wants
his uncle's remains posi-
tively identified, disin-
terred and re-buried in a
family grave site.
The exhumation case.
is currently assigned to
Circuit Judge Bill Wright.


) To make your tools
less attractive to thieves,
individualize them with
paint or other mark-
ings that make it clear
they're one-of-a-kind in
appearance.
) Don't list your full
name of your mailbox
or in your phone book
entry. Use an initial for
your first or middle name,
instead, along with your
last name.
n Take pictures of your
valuables like guns, jew-
elry, electronics and other
items.
) Keep a record of serial
numbers,, make, model
and value of items when
those are available.
) Contact local law en-
forcement if you suspect
criminal behavior.

exas suspect had
interests in cannibalism
HOUSTON- A man
accused of stabbing more
than a dozen people at a
Houston-area college told
investigators that he had
fantasized about cannibal-
ism and necrophilia and
about cutting off people's
faces and wearing them
as masks, according to
a court document made
public on Thursday.
Dylan Quick also told an
investigator that he had
researched mass stabbings
on his home computer
about a week before the
attack at Lone Star College
in Cypress, according to a
search warrant affidavit.
"He stated that he had
read numerous books
about mass killings and
serial killers which are also
located at his residence,"
the affidavit said.
Quick is being held with-
out bond on three counts
of aggravated assault
with a deadly weapon
for Tuesday's attack that
injured 14 people.

3 dead in storm
packing tornadoes
SHUQUALAK, Miss. A
strong spring storm that
socked the Midwest with
ice and heavy, wet snow
made its way east, raking
the South with tornadoes
Thursday, with three
deaths blamed on the
rough weather and thou-
sands of people without
power.
Mississippi Emergency
Management Agency
spokesman Greg Flynn
said Thursday one person
died and several people
were injured after a
reported tornado struck
Kemper County in the far
eastern part of the state.
Tabatha Lott, a dispatch-
er in Noxubee County,
said there were "numer-
ous reports of injuries" in
the town of Shuqualak,
though it wasn't immedi-
ately clear how many.
The T-shaped system
first swept across the
nation's midsection
Wednesday night and
pummeled portions
of Missouri, where the
National Weather Service
said Thursday that an EF-2
tornado appears to have
damaged dozens of homes
in the St. Louis suburb of
Hazelwood. That category
of tornado generally packs
winds of 113 to 157 mph.

Pentagon looks to cut
furlough days
WASHINGTON Senior
Pentagon leaders are tak-
ing another look at sharply


reducing the number of
unpaid furlough days that
department civilians will
have to take in the coming
months, suggesting they
may be able to cut the
number from 14 to as few
as seven, defense officials
said Thursday.
If the number is re-
duced, it would be the
second time the Pentagon
has cut the number of fur-
lough days. It had initially
been set at 22 days.
The officials say no deci-
sion has been made and
That they are not ruling
out efforts to drop the
furloughs entirely. The re-
newed talks come as Navy
leaders continue to pish
for eliminating required
furloughs for Navy civil-
ians. The officials spoke
on condition of anonym-
ity because they weren't
authorized to discuss the
issue publicly.

2 killed, dozens
injured in bus crash
IRVING, Texas At least
two people were killed and
more than 40 were hospi-
talized after a charter bus
careened off a North Texas
highway and flipped onto
its side Thursday, draw-
ing a large emergency
response as rescue crews
struggled to reach victims
inside, authorities said.
The Cardinal Coach Line
bus was carrying mostly
senior citizens when it
suddenly weaved across
the busy highway, striking
two concrete barriers, and
toppled over in the center
median, witnesses said.
The wreck occurred along
President George Bush
Turnpike in Irving, just
east of Dallas/FortWorth
International Airport.
"It was pretty bad,
people screaming," said
Ed Cluck, who stopped
after driving by the wreck
and seeing smoke. He said
he popped the bus' roof
hatches and helped six to
eight people escape.
... "Itwas just people.
stacked on top of each
other," he said.
"It's just a lot ofinjuries,
a lot of people in shock,
broken bones," added
Robert Hare, another mo-
torist who stopped to help.
The bus, which was
carrying about 45 people,
was on its way to a casino
in Oklahoma, authorities
said.
Texas Department of
Public Safety Trooper Lon-
ny Haschel confirmed that
two people were killed in
the accident. Authorities
said 41 other people were
taken to local hospitals.

Senate revises 'parent trigger' proposal


The Associated Press

TALLAHASSEE A
Florida Senate panel
made changes Thursday
to a bill aimed at giving
parents a voice in chart-
ing a turnaround course
for failing public schools,
removing a role for the
State Board of Education
to settle disputes between
parents and local school
boards.
Weighing in on a hotly
contested bill known as
the "parent trigger," the
Senate Appropriations
Subcommittee on Edu-
cation accepted changes
proposed by Sen. David
Simmons, R-Maitland. His
amendment would make
local school boards the
final decision makers in'
choosing turnaround- op-
tions for failing schools in
their districts.
The measure would ap-
ply only to Florida schools

Rep. Mark Danish, D-Tampa, who is an educator, speaks
against the parental trigger bill on the floor of the House of
Representatives on Thursday, at the Capitol in Tallahassee,
Fla.


are currently 25 schools
rated as failing; Florida
schools receive A through
F letter grades based on
how students perform on
certain standardized tests.
But during a recent de-
bate on similar legislation
in the House, Democrats
noted that under a new


- .


"Common Core" rating
system starting in 2014-
15, there could be close to
150.
Under the revised Sen-
ate bill, parents would still
be able to propose a plan
to improve the school,
but the local school board
would make the final


decision.
Local boards would
have to consider options
preferred by parents. The
actual voting by parents
would be done through a
petition drive. If a board
rejected the parents' pref-
erence, the board would
have to report why it did
so while defending its rea-
son for choosing another
course. The report would
have to be presented at a
public hearing.
The proposal allows
parents to vote on one of
several options through
a petition drive, which
could include put-
ting a "plan of correc-
tion" into effect to fix the
school. Another option is
turning the failing school
into a charter school,
which could be managed
by the school district, a
nonprofit or a for-profit
educational company.
This option has upset
most bill opponents.

Chipola battles.TCC
in conference tilt

BY DUSTIN KENT
dkent@jcfloridan.com

With just eight games re-
maining in the Panhandle Con-
ference season, the Chipola
Indians find themselves stand-
ing on the precipice of a very
lonely and frustrating month of
May.
The Indians (28-18 overall, 5-
7 in the Panhandle Conference)
sit two games back of Gulf Coast
State (8-6 in conference) for the
second spot in the league stand-
ings, a precious place to be given
that only two teams from the
Panhandle will qualify for the
state tournament starting May 9'
in Lakeland.


Chipola is still very much alive
to finish second in the league
with it being down just one game
in the loss column and still hav-
ing two more games against Gulf
Coast State to close the regular
season, but with so few games
left, the margin for error is ex-
tremely small.
"If we want to have a chance
to play in the tournament, we've
got to start playing better in a
hurry," Indians coach Jeff John-
Sson said Thursday.
They'll have a chance to start
making a run up the standings
this weekend, but the challenge
will be stiff with first-place Tal-
lahassee (13-1 in the confer-
ence) coming to town today
for the first of a two-game
set.

Bullpups win in dramatic fashion

After falling just shy of
the championship game
last season, the Marianna
Middle School Bullpups
baseball team are once
again the Panhandle Con-
ference champs -for 2013
after knocking off Bonifay
on April 5.
The 11-10 win over Boni-
fay came in dramatic fash-
ion with a two-out rally in
the final inning.
A pair of hits and a cou-
ple of errors gave Bonifay
an early fout-run first in-

and the San Francisco Gi-

Pablo Sandoval hit
a two-run double in a

Thibodeau: No deadline

for Rose's return to Bulls


The Associated Press


CHICAGO Bulls
coach Tom Thibodeau
says the team has not set
a deadline for Derrick
Rose to return from his
knee injury.
Rose tore the anterior
cruciate ligament in his
left knee during last year's
playoff opener against
the Philadelphia 76ers.
His comeback remains
the biggest story sur-
rounding the team.
Thibodeau keeps say-
ing Rose is close and
there's "no drop-dead
date," adding "when-
ever he's ready, he's
ready."
The former MVP wasn't
ready to play Thursday
against the surging New
York Knicks.
Joakim Noah (right foot)


and Taj Gibson (sprained
left knee) were also out,
but Luol Deng returned
to the lineup after miss-
ing the previous two
games with an injured
right hip.
Richard Hamilton
(back) and Marco Beli-
nelli (abdominal strain),
who have missed time
lately, were available.
Belinelli was starting at
shooting guard.
The Knicks were short-
handed, too.
Tyson Chandler (bulg-
ing disc) missed his sec-
ond straight game. Ken-
yon Martin sat this one
out after severely sprain-
ing his left ankle Tues-
day against Washington,
another blow after he re-
turned from a two-game
absence because of a sore

The Masters



Garcia, Leishman shoot 66 for lead


The Associated Press

AUGUSTA, Ga. Sergio
Garcia is still chasing that
first major title.
It never figured to come
at Augusta National.
But there he was Thurs-
day, after a bogey-free
opening round, sharing
Sthe top spot on the leader-
board at the Masters.
"Obviously, this is not my
most favorite place," Gar-
cia said, trying to be diplo-
matic. "But we try to enjoy
it as much as we can every
time we come here. Some-
times it comes out better
than others. Today was one
of those good days. Let's
enjoy it while it lasts."
Garcia's 6-under 66 tied
him with Aussie Marc
Leishman, on a cloudy
day that was made for go-
ing low. There wasn't much
wind until late in the af-
ternoon, when a storm
front approached Augusta.
There wasn't a blistering
sun to bake out the greens,
which .were receptive to
accurate shots.
The Spaniard took ad-
vantage, rekindling mem-
ories of the teen phenom
known as "El Nino," who
seemed certain to win nu-
merous major titles after
he battled with Woods at
the 1999 PGA Champion-
ship, losing by a single
stroke. *
Garcia has challenged
in other majors, but rarely
at the Masters a course
that doesn't seem to fit his
style or shaky putter. In 14
previous appearances at
Augusta National, he has
finished in the top 10 only
twice.
Last year, after a dismal
third round took him out
of contention, he bluntly
conceded that he didn't
think he was capable of

of the Masters on Thursday in Augusta, Ga.


winning a major.
Obviously, he feels differ-
ent now though there's
still some trepidation in
his voice about what's still
to come.
"Every time I tee off in
a tournament, the goal is
to play the best I can and
have a chance at winning.
That doesn't change this
week," Garcia said. "To-
day was a nice day, one of
those days you really enjoy.
Hopefully I'll have three
more of those and we'll see
what happens on Sunday
night."
With all eyes on Tiger
Woods, the overwhelming
favorite, plenty of others
stood out amid the aza-
leas and towering Georgia


pines.
There was Leishman,
who had played two
whole rounds at Augusta
National.
There was David Lynn,'
a Masters rookie who was
just two strokes back.
Lynn was the early club-
house leader, then Leish-
man surged to the front
with four straight birdies
on the back side starting at
No. 13. The Australian sure
didn't play like someone
who had missed the cut in
his only other Masters ap-
pearance, in 2010.
"The first time I was
here," Leishman recalled,
"I was like a bit of a deer in
headlights, I guess. I found
myself looking around, a


little bit too much and not
concentrating on getting
the ball in the hole."
He was hardly on a roll
coming into Augusta, hav-
ing missed the cut in his
two previous PGA Tour
events. But it all came to-
gether, for one day at least.
"To be sitting here is
pretty cool," Leishman
said. "But it's only Thurs-
day afternoon, so a lot of
golf to play."
No Australian has ever
won the Masters.
Lynn, a runner-up to
Rory Mcllroy in last year's
PGA Championship,
birdied four of five holes
around the turn and rolled
in a testy 15-foot putt at
the final hole to save.par.


"It's about playing the
percentages," the English'-
man said. "When I was on
the ninth, I turned to my
caddie and said, 'We're
leading the Masters.' He
just looked at me and
smiled. I told him, 'I'd rath-
er be leading it Sunday af-
ternoon.' But it's not a bad
thing to see your name up
there leading the Masters.
That's always something I
can look back on."
Lynn moved from the
European to the American ,
tour this year, a change
that seems to have rejuve-
nated his passion for the
game.
"It's given me a second
wind," Lynn said. "Every-
thing is new. I'm going
to different places every
week, different courses. It's
like I've started my career
again almost."
Dustin Johnson was one
shot off the lead after a 67.
Lynn was joined at 68 by a
group that included Rickie
Fowler, who went on the
wildest ride of the day a
4-under score despite two
double-bogeys.
Jamie Donaldson turned
in the shot of the day, acing
the 180-yard sixth for the
24th hole-in-one in Mas-
ters history. He is only the
fifth player to make a 1 at
the hole known as Juniper,
with its towering tee box
and a green at the bottom
of the hill. Donaldson was
the first to do it since Chris
DiMarco in 2004.
Woods was still the favor-
ite after opening with a 70.
But it appears he'll have a
lot of competition.
"I felt like I putted well
today," said Woods, whose
only lower opening-round
score at Augusta was a 68
in 2010. "We've got a long
way to go. I've just got to go
out there and play shot for


shot. The golf course is go-
ing to change dramatically.
You've just got to make
adjustments."
Woods has already won
three times this .year and;
reclaimed his No. 1 spot,
in the world rankings. But'
he hasn't captured a major
since 2008, and it's been
eight long years since he:
claimed his fourth green;
jacket at Augusta. He is still;
four majors shy of tying;
Jack Nicklaus' record 18;
championships a mark'
that becomes a little more;
daunting each time the
37-year-old Woods fails to,
win one of golf's biggest
events.
Guan Tianlang of China
is just getting started. At
age 14, he was the young-
est player to ever qualify for
the Masters, but showed
he belonged with a solid
73 that included a 15-foot
birdie from the fringe at
the final hole.
His playing partner, two-
time Masters champion
Ben Crenshaw, led the
cheers.
"I felt a little bit nervous
on the first tee," Guan said.
"But I hit a great tee shot
and, after that, everything
feels comfortable."
Shortly after dawn, the
tournament began with
ceremonial shots from
three of golf's greatest play-
ers 83-year-old Arnold
Palmer, 77-year-old Gary
Player and the 73-year-old
Nicklaus.
Palmer was clearly
pleased with his effort,
which settled right in the
middle of the fairway. He
pumped his right fist as
the crowd roared.
"The only nerves are to
make sure you make con-
tact," Nicklaus quipped..
"It doesn't make a diddly-
darn where it goes."

on course

The Associated Press

AUGUSTA, Ga. Think
of it as power couples in-
stead of Fred Couples.
Some of the talkThursday
at the Masters wasn't just
about what was happen-
ing on the tees and greens,
but who was outside the
ropes looking in. The No.
1 and No. 2-ranked players
in the world, Tiger Woods
and Rory Mcllroy, had en-
tourages that included girl-
friends with some pedigree
of their own.
For Woods it was Lind-
sey Vonn, the Olympic ski
champion and now his
very public companion.
She watched from the
clubhouse lawn as Woods
teed off on No. 1, and lin-
gered around to see him
after he came off the 18th
green.
In between, she drew a
crowd of photographers
who gathered around her
while Woods played the
ninth hole.
Woods and Vonn ac-
knowledged their relation-
ship last month in posts
on social media, complete
with studio pictures of
the couple. The last time
Woods won the Masters,
he was married to Elin
Nordegren. They divorced
in 2010 after Woods ad-
mitted numerous marital'
indiscretions.
Caroline Wozrliacki, once
the No. 1 tennis player in
the world, has been linked
to McIlroy for nearly two
years. She's now No. 10 in
world standings.
Wozniacki put on a cad-
die's bib Wednesday for the
Par 3 contest, and McIlroy
even had her hit a shot,
which she topped in the
water. On Thursday, she
was in the crowd following
the Irish player during the
first round.

Alabama's Lacy works out


The Associated Press

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. -Al-
abama tailback Eddie Lacy
made his most-scrutinized
runs since the BCS cham-
pionship game.
Lacy ran the 40 in 4.57
and 4.60 seconds Thurs-
day before representatives
from about 20 NFL teams,
according to NFL.com. A
hamstring injury kepthim
from performing for the
stopwatches at the com-
bine or the Crimson Tide's
initial pro day.
Lacy said he's close to 100
percent healthy after get-
ting hurt during training.
"During my 40, I was a
little nervous about actu-
ally opening up but I ran
a pretty good time, so I'm
satisfied with that," he
said.
Lacy, who was MVP of the
title game against Notre
Dame, is projected as the
top running back in the
draft. He's hoping to join
Tide predecessors Trent
Richardson and Mark In-
gram as a first-round pick,
though some draft projec-
tions have him slipping
into the second.
The 5-foot-ll, 230-

pound Lacy also did shut-
tle runs and other drills
but appeared winded at
times and had to step out
of the indoor practice fa-
cility briefly to catch his
breath at one point.
"That was the most in-
tense it's been for me since


I've been coming off my
hamstring injury and just
trying to work myself back
into shape," Lacy said.
He spent the latter part of
the workout running pass
routes and didn't have any
drops. Lacy ran for 1,322
yards and 17 touchdowns


and caught 17 passes for
189 yards as' a junior in
his lone season as the
starter.
Lacy said his pass-catch-
ing was the second-biggest
thing he wanted to show
NFL teams behind his 40
time.

Earnhardt has no problem with Johnson


The Associated Press

FORT WORTH, Texas
- Dale Earnhardt Jr.'s fans
might not have liked it,
but the driver himself has
no issue with Hendrick,
Motorsports teammate
Jimmie Johnson for pass-
ing him under caution at
Martinsville.
Earnhardt said Thursday
he would have done the
same thing in the same
situation.
Johnson was leading last
Sunday when Earnhardt's
car spun out and brought
out the caution. Johnson
did try to slow down when
his No. 48 got near where
Earnharat was, but even-
tually went around Earn-
hardt and put the No. 88
down another lap.
"He did actually try to
slow down, and I think that
he saw that I had two left-
side flat tires and it was
pretty pointless for him
to wait," Earnhardt said
before a testing session at
Texas Motor Speedway. "If
he stopped at all, the guys
behind him would have
been able to pass him for
that position. He couldn't
give up that opportunity
or take that chance, or take
that risk."
Johnson did go on to win
the race with a career-high
346 laps led, moving up
from third to take over the


IHE AbSUULAI ED PREl

Motor Speedway on Thursday in Fort WorthTexas.


Sprint Cup points lead. respor
Earnhardt, who went into day aft
Martinsville as the.points
leader after finishing sev-
enth or better in each of
the first five races, finished
24th and two laps behind
his teammate. He slipped
to third in points.
"We shouldn't have been
back there in the first place
and been in that position,
to be run over," Earnhardt
said. "But unfortunately it
was just a bad day for us
and it just seemed to get
worse. But he wasn't do-
ing anything that he wasn't
supposed to be doing. The
guy is leading the race, you
know. He's got to take care
of what he's doing. He's got
a race to win."
There was so much reac-
tion on social media about
what Johnson did that he


ided on Twitter the
:er the race.


"You haters have it right.
I'm a bad teammate, I
have a cheated up car, I'm
lucky and the race was
fixed. Gotta love twitter &
(hash)NascarFans," read
Johnson's tweet Monday.
Earnhardt made it clear
Thursday that he had no
problems with Johnson.
"I would have done the
same thing Jimmie did,"
Earnhardt said. "I'm lead-
ing the race, I've got to
think about riy team and
my car and what I'm try-
ing to do. I don't think he
did it out of spite or any-
thing like that. He just was
driving his race."

Ex-NFL player

Hurd pleads guilty

to drug charge


The Associated Press

DALLAS Former NFL
wide receiver Sam Hurd
pleaded guilty Thursday
to trying to buy -cocaine
and marijuana to set
up a drug-distribution
network, leaving a once-
promising career in tat-
ters as he faces a prison
sentence of at least 10
years,
Hurd, 27, pleaded guilty
in federal court in Dal-
las to one count of pos-
session of cocaine and
marijuana with intent to
distribute. He pleaded
guilty days before his trial
was scheduled to begin,
without any promise of a
more lenient sentence.
He faces 10 years to life
in prison when he is sen-
tenced in July.
Standing in an orange
jumpsuit, the tall, lanky
Hurd leaned into a mi-
crophone and asked to
address the court.
"I'm sorry for every-
thing I've done," he said
in a brief statement, add-


ing that he intended to
plead guilty for months
and never expected the
process to take as long as
it did.
Hurd was playing for
the Chicago Bears in De-
cember 2011 months
after signing a contract
reportedly worth more
than $5 million when
he attended a meeting
at a Chicago-area steak-
house with an undercover
officer and a confidential
informant. Prosecutors
have alleged in court
documents that Hurd
accepted a kilogram of
cocaine from the officer
and signaled that he'd
be interested in buying
large, weekly quantities of
cocaine and marijuana.
Hurd was arrested out-
side the steakhouse and
cut by the Bears shortly
afterward.
He was released on
bond, but was re-arrest-
ed in August after failing
drug tests and being ac-
cused of trying to arrange
another drug buy.

Goat's head delivered

to Wrigley Field


The Associated Press

CHICAGO The Chi-
cago Cubs found a severed
goat's head at Wrigley Field
on Wednesday, and they're
treating the cruel reference
to a longtime curse as .a
crime.
Chicago police were
called in to investigate
after a man stopped the
white van he was driving,
walked a box to a security
entrance on Waveland Av-
enue and wordlessly put
it down, Cubs spokesman
Julian Green said.
Security workers opened
the box, addressed to
team owner Tom Rick-
etts, and discovered
the severed head. The
team immediately called
police.
Green said Thursday
that police were given
surveillance video, and
that he doesn't know why
someone would deliver a
goat's head. Police did not
_Jcomment on who might
t S& '~.7,:,* .


have left the goat head or
a possible motive other
than to refer to the head
in a brief statement as an
"intimidating package."
The significance of the
goat, however, isn't lost
on many. In 1945, a tav-
ern owner named William
"Billy Goat" Sianis tried to
bring a goat to a World Se-
ries game, but was told his
goat which had a ticket
- smelled too much to be
admitted..
Sianis angrily put a curse
on the team and since
then, the Cubs haven't
been back to the World
Series.
Fans have had little to
cheer on the field in re-
cent years, as the Cubs lost
more than 100 games last
year and are off to a rocky
start this season. As for
Ricketts, he's been negoti-
ating a $300 million reno-
vation of the stadium, built
almost a century ago, with
the city and neighborhood
businesses.

Dear Annie: My sister, "Suzie," has al-
ways been a bit of a flower child, and my
parents think it's funny. Suzie dropped
out of high school to pursue her "career"
in something art, music, dance, yoga,
whatever. I usually gave her a place to
stay when she got evicted and didn't
want our parents to know, which was
pretty often.
Suzie and her husband (I'm not sure
whether they're legally married) have
been better since my nephews were
born. What concerns me is that she won't
take the kids to the doctor when they get
sick. She just gives them some herbal
remedy and sends them to bed. The boys
aren't very clean, often have the sniffles
and are almost always in clothing that's
the wrong size. Suzie is homeschooling
the boys, even though neither she nor
her husband graduated high.school.
My oldest nephew is 7 and cannot read,
count to 10 or say his ABCs.
Suzie insists that the children be fed
only vegan and organic products. When
the boys stay with us, which is fairly often
lately, we feed them healthy balanced
meals that they wolf down like they're
starving. The oldest boy told me they
usually eat oatmeal with some peanut


ENTERTAINMENT


butter in it. I believe both boys
are anemic.
The family has, on occasion, lived in
their car. Suzie recently said they are go-
ing to "live on the road" for a while and
the boys will adjust. I think my nephews
are being neglected. She's leaving the
boys with me for two weeks this summer,
and I'm tempted to have Child Protective
Services evaluate them. My wife agrees.
My parents don't. I'm scared Suzie will
bolt with the kids if she gets wind of my
suspicions. She's done it before.
I want the best for my nephews. How
do I go about it?
-W.C.

'Dear W.C.: Don't wait until summer. Call
Child Protective Services anonymously,
and ask them to investigate the home
environment now. (You need not inform
your parents.) CPS may determine that
the kids are in a loving, healthy-enough
environment, in which case, please stop
trying to wrest control from Suzie, and
concentrate instead on making your
home a safe, stable place for your neph-
ews. And if CPS determines that the kids
need to be removed from Suzie's care, we
hope you will offer to take them.


Bridge


In this deal, how should South plan the play in four
hearts? West leads the spade king. East overtakes with his
ace and returns his second spade. West takes.this trick,
cashes the club ace, and plays another club.
When West's one-spade opening bid was passed around
to South, his balancing three-heart jump overcall was in-
termediate, showing a respectable six-card suit and 14 to
16 high-card points. North would no doubt have bid four
hearts anyway, but West's three-spade rebid definitely
pushed him into it. East let the.prevailing vulnerability
dissuade him from bidding four spades. (Note that four
spades doubled goes down two, minus 500.)
Declarer must play the heart suit without loss. If the op-
ponents had passed throughout, South would have taken
the finesse. (A priori, East will have the heart king 50 per-
cent of the time, but West will have a singleton king only
13 percent of the time.) Here, though, South must remem-
ber the bidding. East passed over his partner's opening
bid and has already produced the spade ace. If he also had
the heart king, he would have had seven points and would
have responded. Therefore, West has the king of hearts.
South should play a heart to his ace and claim when the
king luckily drops.
Especially when an opponent opened, always check the
high-card points.

NBA



Heat wrap up home-court for playoffs


The Associated Press

MIAMI All the Miami
Heat did was set a fran-
chise single-season record
for wins with four games
left to play, clinch the top
overall spot in the NBA and
secure home-court advan-
tage for the entirety of the
playoffs.
No big deal.
No wild celebration was
merited. No celebration at
all, really. Just business as
usual for the.Heat, whose
lone goal isn't being the
best team in April but
rather, being the best team
in June. Miami wrapped up
the No. 1 overall seed with
a 103-98 win in Washing-
ton on Wednesday, a game
where the Heat played
without LeBron James,
Dwyane Wade, Chris Bosh
and Udonis Haslem, all
sidelined by minor injuries
or illness.
"We've had an amazing
year," Heat forward Shane
Battier told reporters in
Washington. "We've set a
lot of records and we've
had a lot of story lines the
whole year. Hopefully our
best story line is still ahead
of us. That's what we're sav-
Sing the high-fives for."
It was Miami's 62nd win,
one more than the Heat
club of 1996-97 managed.
And now what has


Ii-: :'' i'r Ti:i' fn
Miami Heat guard Ray Allen (left) looks to move past Washington Wizards forward Kevin
Seraphin during the game Wednesday in Washington.


seemed inevitable for the
last couple weeks Mi-
ami finishing the regular
season atop the league
- has become reality.
"We don't set out to have
milestones," said James,
the reigning NBA MVP
and a favorite to win that
award for a fourth time
this season. "We only set


out to get better each and
every day and try to win a
Championshipp"
Having that No. 1 seed
might sound good, but
guarantees nothing. In the
last nine seasons, the only
team to finish the year with
the best regular-season re-
cord and even make the
NBA Finals was the 2007-


08 Boston Celtics, who
won that season's title.
Wrapping everything up
now means that the final
fpur games, all of which
could have been oh-so-in-
triguing for the Heat, now
basically don't mean very'
much, at least from the
Miami perspective.
Of course, neither did


the 27-game winning
streak, the second-longest
stretch in league history.
Most inhabitants of the
Miami locker room didn't
even know when the Heat
won the division title. For
Miami, it's a champion-
ship-or-bust year, which
explains why the scene in
Washington on Wednes-
day night didn't differ
much from any of the pre-
vious 61 Heat victories this
season.
"We're sitting at 62:wins,"
Heat coach Erik Spoelsua
said. "It does mean some-
thing for us in that locker
room. We haven't been
here before as a franchise.
It's a minor thing. We want
to keep the main thing the
main thing."
'The question for Spoels-
tra now to ponder is how to
rest players before Game 1
of the playoffs, a series that
will likely be against the
Milwaukee Bucks.
Boston plays at Miami
on Friday in an Eastern
Conference finals rematch
from a year ago. On Sun-
day, Chicago the team
that snapped Miami's
27-game winning streak
- visits the Heat.
There's playoff rami-
fications for the Celtics
and Bulls in those games,
though it's unclear how or
if that may sway the Heat


thinking when it comes
to assembling a lineup,
especially with all these
little nagging injury issues
popping up so close to the
postseason.
"It's always nice to have
home-court, especially in
front of our fans the way
they get involved in games
and how well we play at
home," Heat Forward Mike
Miller said. "It'll be a big
advantage for us we
hope."
Miami has the league's
second-best home record
so far this season, trailing
only the Denver Nuggets.
And since James and Bosh
arrived in Miami, the Heat
are 20-4 in home post-
season games, with one
of those losses being the
Game 6 defeat to Dallas in
the 2011 NBA Finals.
That's why the Heat aren't
overstating the importance
of home-court advantage.
"It's nice. It's nice. It's not
everything," Battier said.
"Our mindset last year was
'Anyone, anywhere.' And I
think that's the best mind-
set going into the playoffs,
but it was nice to have a
Game 7 against Boston at
home, in retrospect."
-The next week or so
will not be vacation time
for Miami, regardless of
who's in uniform for the
remaining four games.


Wade says he plans to return to lineup in Friday's game


The Associated Press

MIAMI Dwyane Wade
plans to return to the Mi-
ami Heat lineup Friday,
after missing six straight
contests because of right
knee soreness.
Wade told The -Associ-
ated Press that his knee is
healthy enough for him
to play again and that he
expects to play in both
Friday's game against the
Boston Celtics and Sun-
day's matchup against the
Chicago Bulls, barring any
setbacks.
"I'm feeling good," Wade
said. "The toughest part
is mentally more so than
physically. I played two
weeks with it and eventu-
ally I felt it getting a little
worse and I said, 'OK, I've
got to shut it down.'"
Wade has also dealt with
a twisted ankle in the past
couple- weeks, but the
knee was the bigger con-
cern. Doctors eventually
found three separate bone
bruises that essentially
surrounded his kneecap,
and Wade said rest and

treatment has largely taken
care of the problem.
Officially, the Heat are

and Chris Bosh as day
to day. Wade and James
were among the players
at the Heat facility Thurs-
day working out and get-
ting treatments. The team
was otherwise off and
Heat coach Erik Spoelstra
isn't expected to discuss
the lineup for the Celtics
game until the completion
of Miami's shootaround


practice Friday morning.
James has been bothered
by a right hamstring strain
that has had him sidelined
in four of Miami's past six
games. Bosh has missed
Miami's last three games,
one with a sore knee and
two others with flu and
cold symptoms.
Regardless of what the
Heat end up doing, Friday's
game in Miami will be
lacking at least some star
power. The Celtics plan to
play without Paul Pierce

ankle soreness.
Standings-wise, the
game means, nothing to
the Heat, who will finish
the regular season with the
best record in the NBA and
have home-court advan-
tage throughout the play-
offs. The Celtics are trying
to lock up the No. 7 seed
in the Eastern Conference,
ensuring they would not
meet Miami in the open-
ing round.


Wade is averaging 21.3
points, 5 rebounds and 5
assists per game this sea-
son for Miami, shooting
nearly 56 percent from
the floor since the All-Star
break in February.
"I was feeling great, play-
ing well," Wade said. "To
have a setback with some-
thing like bruises, it was
tough."
Wade's latest knee issue
started March 6, when he
took a hit in a game against
the Orlando Magic. Anoth-

on March 18 in Boston, re-
sulting in another bruise.
Wade said he isn't sure how
the third bruise happened.
