HERO'

This home on New Hope Road was destroyed in a fire early Wednesday morning. The seven people who were home at the time were able
to escape without injury.

Teenage girl helps save family from fire


BY DEBORAH BUCKHALTER
dbuckhalter@jcfloridan.com

A 14-year-old girl from Marianna is
being called a, hero by hler family af-
ter saving herself and six others from
potential death in a house fire early
Wednesday morning.
The owner of the home and the girl's
mother figure, Mozell Jackson, said she
'is certain that three small children,
herself and others in the home would
have perished if it hadn't been for An-
gelica Godwin.
Everyone was asleep .in the house
when the.smell of smoke roused God-
win from her bed just before 1:30 a.m.
She discovered that the house was on
fire, and ran to Jackson's room.
"She carne running to my door, say-
ing the house was on fire. I jumped
out of bed, opened my door, and saw
smoke," Jackson recalled. "Then Iran to
the front door; I have a long house, and
I could hardly see because there was


so much smoke. I ran back down the
hall and we got the children. We had to
go out through the smoke because the
only doors in the front of the house,
on past the big part of the smoke.
There were three little ones back there.
My son had just come and stayed the
night with me, and I woke him up. I
don't know how he came through that
smoke. I don't know how any of us got
through it, really. My (grown) daughter
was there visiting, too. I'm glad they
were here; they were helping us get the
little ones out."
With flames already showing in the
kitchen area, and the hallway thick
with smoke, Jackson and all her family
members escaped unharmed through
one of the two doors at the front of the
house; there is no back door. But her
brick home was destroyed. Damage to
it was estimated at $100,000, and dam-
age to the contents at $30,000.
A picture of Jackson's father, Jim Wal-
ton, was among the irreplaceable items


destroyed. He died young, when she
was 5 months old, and the picture of
him sitting in a rocking chair was one
of her only tangible ties to him. Other
family pictures were also destroyed,
including a family portrait of her chil-
dren, -herself and her husband, An-
drew, who died six years ago. He'd built
their house, starting out with three
bedrooms after they first married, and
adding four more as their family grew
to include five children.
Jackson now shares her home with
three young grandchildren and God-
win, whom she has raised almost since
birth. She considers her a daughter,
and said she is a big hero right now.
Despite the trauma she's been through
just hours earlier, Jackson found a wisp
of humor to share. "She's definitely my
hero. If she hadn't come to that door,
we'd .all be dead. And she'll probably
never let me forget it when she wants

State drops

child abuse

charge against

local woman
From staff reports
The state attorney's office has elected
to abandon the child abuse charge that
law enforcement had filed against Mar-
ianna resident Michelle Annette Ca m p-
bell earlier this month. Indicating there
is insufficient evidence,
to prove the charge be-
yond a reasonable doubt,
"based on the evidence of
the injuries and: consid-
eration of circumstances
surrounding the inci-
Campbell dent," the state filed a "no
information" document
with the court in deciding not to pur-
sue the matter, according to paperwork
from the state attorney's office.
Campbell had been charged after po-
lice went to her home on March 16 in
response to a complaint of loud music
coming from the. residence. In inter-
viewing the people in the dwelling, po-
lice talked to one of Campbell's children.
The girl told authorities that her mother
had grabbed her arm, leaving marks
.and causing physical pain, according to
the law enforcement complaint. Noting
in the complaint that the child showed
him three marks, the investigating offi-
cer had leveled the charge.

Police

searching for

home invasion

suspect
From staff reports
Marianna police are seeking the
public's help in finding the man who
invaded a local home Tuesday and held
a woman at knifepoint until being dis-
covered and overpowered by a male
resident of the dwelling.
Authorities say the male resident had
stepped outside briefly around 6:30
p.m. and returned to find the intruder in
his Edgewood Drive residence. The two
struggled, and the male victim received
minor injuries in the confrontation be-
fore the suspect ran from the scene.
He is' described as a black man in
his 40s or 50s, with a thin-to-medium
build.
Anyone with information in the case
is urged to call the Marianna Police De-
partment at 526-3125 or Crimestoppers
at 526-5000.


2Fit 2Squeal Race


A moment of silence for Boston


BY DEBORAH BUCKHALTER
dbuckhalter@jcfloridan.com

A moment of silence will be ob-
served before runners begin the lo-
cal 10K and 5K race at this weekend's
Paint and Pork Fest, in honor of the
victims in Monday's Boston Mara-
thon bombings.
The 2Fit 2Squeal race organizer
Margo Lamb said runners and spec-
tators are also encouraged to wear
ribbons or something else with blue
and yellow colors associated with
the marathon or to in some other
way display their support of the vic-
tims who were killed or injured by
the pressure-cooker that exploded
near the finish line of the marathon..

other worthwhile projects.



Sheriff's office will host



self-defense class May 4


Special to the Floridan

The Jackson County
Sheriff's Office, in con-
junction with the Chipola
Fitness Center, will host a
self-defense class designed
especially for females in
Jackson County. This class
will be held Saturday, May
4 at-9 a.m. at the Chipola
Fitness Center located
at 4230 Lafayette St. in
Marianna.
The sheriff's office and
Chipola Fitness feel not
only will this give the
wornen in our community
a sense of security, but it
,will also aid them in not
becoming a victim.
The Jackson County
Sheriff's Office and Chipola
Fitness will have Lora Fish-
er, a self-defense aware-
ness and familiarization
exchange instructor, on
site to host this worthwhile
interactive workshop on
practical self-defense for
women. Fisher has pro-
, vided self-defense training


for hundreds of women
locally. Instructor Fisher
will demonstrate and teach
realistic, core self-defense
techniques. The purpose
of this initiative is to stop
violence against teenage
and adult women.
Fisher will host a hands-
on demonstration featur-
ing ways to avoid potential
conflict, as well as offer
counter-intuitive methods
to circumvent attacks and
provide opportunities for
escape.
"Keeping women safe
is absolutely critical and I
am passionate about em-
powering women to avoid
being victims," said Fisher.
"Ninety percent of self-
defense is awareness, risk
reduction and avoiding
confrontation and only 10
percent is physical. This
training encompasses
strategies, techniques, op-
tions and prevention."
The workshop is open
to women 13 years of
age and older and 1las a


limited class size. The cost
is $15 per person. To make

Senate panel approves insurance proposals


The Associated Press

TALLAHASSEE A Senate panel
on Wednesday passed two very dif-
ferent proposals to expand health
insurance for low-income Florid-
ians under the federal health law,
leaving billions of federal dollars at
stake.
With less than three weeks left in
the Legislative session, lawmakers
in the House and Senate are still
worlds apart on whether to accept
an estimated $55 billion dollars
from the feds over the next decade
to offer health coverage to roughly
1.1 million residents or to rely on
state funds to cover only about
115,000 residents..
House leaders have adamantly
spoken out against accepting fed-
eral money tied to the Affordable
Care Act, leaving Senate lawmakers
scrambling to craft a proposal they
will agree to. Both chambers voted
Against a straight Medicaid expan-
sion'early in the session.
But so far, instead of endorsing
just one plan, the Senate is keeping
alive two different options depend-
ing on how negotiations go in the
-final days of the session. That irri-
tated some senators.
"I'm concerned we may send a
mixed message if we send two bills
out .of here. It's like trying to take'
-two dates to the prom ... I think we
need to be very careful that we don't
show any reluctance with that and
we need a total resolve to move for-
ward with that plan ... and I'd hate.
to send the wrong message that we
might be having second thoughts,"
said Sen. Bill Montford,
D-Tallahassee.
But Sen. Aaron Bean, whose less
comprehensive plan would pass up
federal dollars, urged committee
members to support both propos-
als to give lawmakers options, argu-
ing his bill may be the only path the
House is willing to consider.
"There's another body across the.
way that also has a say in what we
do. They haven't shown an interest


in taking federal funds," said Bean,
R-Fernandina Beach.
A plan by Sen. Joe Negron unani-
mously passed the committee and
received rare support from the busi-
ness community, labor advocates
and health care providers during
public testimony. Gov. Rick Scott
has also expressed support for Ne-
gron's proposal, warning that by-
passing federal dollars and paying
for health coverage with state funds
would put a double burden on Flor-
ida taxpayers. Negron's plan would
give the federal money to recipients
in the form of vouchers that would
allow them to choose a private in-


short of offering any comprehensive
solution.
"It seems on its face to be cheap-
er but that's because it doesn't do
much of anything. I liken the bill to
buying four flat tires and expecting
the car to drive. I don't think this
bill drives us to where we need to
be," said Democratic Sen. Audrey
Gibson.
Negron, R-Stuart, said he's opti-
mistic the House and Senate can
take the best of both proposals. He
suggested a hybrid bill that would
allow recipients to choose between
a health insurance voucher or to

a middle school student
from all public schools
in Jacksonville after she
severely beat another
student.
Circuit Judge Henry
Davis inserted the ban of
the 14-year-old girl from
Duval County public
schools into a protective
injunction he made earlier
this month at the request
of the beaten student.
The 14-year-old victim
says the banned student
viciously attacked her
after two other students
lured her off the campus
of Oceanway Middle
School. The victim's attor-
ney says another student
videotaped the attack with
a plan to post it on social

Approved bill requires care


for infants surviving abortions


The Associated Press

TALLAHASSEE A bill
requiring medical care
for newborns surviving
botched I abortions was
overwhelmingly passed
Wednesday by the Florida
House, a rare show of una-
nimity in the contentious
abortion debate that will
play out in coming days.
The measure (HB 1129)
cleared the House on a
119-0 vote, It would penal-
ize abortion providers who
don't render medical care
for infants who are born
af~ve despite attempted
abortions.
"Every infant born alive,
regardless of the man-
ner of birth, has a right to
receive the appropriate
care available to them,"
said' Rep. Cary Pigman,
-R-Avon Park, the bill's
sponsor.


Abortion-rights sup-
porters say the scenario
contemplated by the bill is
extremely rare. But some
abortion .opponents have
said it's not such a rarity.
The bill's advocates in-
cluded Gail Adger, a 41-
year-old woman who
claimed she was living
proof of its necessity. She
told a House committee
recently that she was born
two days after her mother
underwent a procedure
that she thought terminat-
ed the pregnancy.
Adger said she weighed
less than two pounds and
had no heartbeat when
her unwed mother deliv-
ered her over a toilet. Her
mother stuffed her into
a garbage bag, thinking
she. had died. But when
she coughed, her, mother
-called 911 and she was
taken to a hospital,


Adger said in testifying
for the bill.
A similar bill being con-
sidered in the Florida Sen-
ate has advanced through
a couple of committees.
Under the House bill,
failure to treat newborns
who survive abortions or to
have them transported to a
hospital would be a misde-
meanor, punishable by up
to, a year in jail, a $1,000
fine or both. The measure
also requires abortion
providers to report failed
procedures to state health
authorities.,
"This legislation aims
to protect the most frag-
ile and innocent citizens
of our state. Every child
born alive deserves a
fighting chance, and this
legislation will ensure
that they get that chance
in our- state," said House
Majority Leader Steve


Precourt, R-Orlando.
Pigman has said his bill
does not affect actual abor-
tion procedures.
Also Wednesday, the
House began its review
of another bill that would
ban sex- and race-selective
abortions.
The measure. (HB 845)
would require abortion
providers to sign an affi-
davit stating they had jno
knowledge the procedure
was being done based
on the unborn child's
sex or race. Providers
would be slapped with a
$10,000 fine foi failing to
report such abortions.
Rep. Charles Van Zant,
the bill's lead sponsor, said
sex- and race-selective
abortions are becoming
more prevalent, but didn't
provide any numbers on
how many such abortions
are done.


Convicted toddler murderer to remain in prison


The Associated Press

TALLAHASSEE The
man convicted in. the
1989 murder of a 2-year-
old who ;was repeatedly
dunked head-first into
a toilet won't be eligible
for parole for another 71
years, the Florida Parole
Commission decided on
Wednesday essentially
guaranteeing he will die in
prison.
The commission set a
"presumptive release date"
for 46-year-old Thomas
Coe in July 2084. He will be
117.
"We'll be calling him
Methuselah by then," said
State Attorney Jerry Hill,
'whose office prosecuted
Coe. But Hill also warned
that the commission can
next revisit the case in
:2019 and theoretically
,could make the release
date earlier.

must serve a mandatory
minimum of 25 years. He


"That baby had no one to help him, no one to

Dorine
Fam


received a life sentence in
the first-degree murder of
stepson Bradley McGee
in Polk County. Coe was
not present at the hearing
arid had no representative
present.
Samantha Campbell,
Bradley's now 37-year-old
foster sister, handed out
blue teddy bears to parole
commissioners while fam-
ily friend Dorine Parsons
showed a framed portrait
of the tow-headed toddler.
Coe "should never see
daylight outside of razor
wire," Parsons said, crying.
"That baby had no one to
help him, no one to protect
him. (Coe) has never said
he was sorry. He's shown
no remorse."

mates to serve a mi

Hillsborough


County to sue


BP over oil spill


The Associated Press

TAMPA Hillsbor-
ough County commis-
sioners voted unani-
mously Wednesday to
sue oil-giant BP over lost
tax revenues the county
claims it suffered due to
the 2010 Deepwater Ho-
rizon spill in the Gulf of
Mexico.
The county claims it suf-
fered nearly $43 million in
losses from hotel, gas,
sales and other tax and
fee receipts as a result
of the spill.
Commissioners previ-
ously have voted to pur-
sue a claim against the
company for the losses.
It has entered the claims
process, but the vote
didn't explicitly authorize
a lawsuit.
Commissioners ap-
proved the action without
discussion.
Thus far, governments.
outside the. Panhandle
generally have not proved
successful in seeking com-
pensation for the spill.'


Wednesday's vote autho-
rizes attorneys hired by
the county to file a lawsuit
to seek compensation.
The statute of limitations
for filing a claim through
the court system expires
Monday.
The county has hired
the Fowler White Boggs
firm to pursue its claim.
The law firm is work-
ing under a contract that
would pay it 20 percent of
what it recovers, plus le-
gal expenses, if it secures
any money for the county.
The firm will not be paid
otherwise.
"I still believe we have
incurred damages from
bed taxes and other rev-
enues," commissioner
Kevin Beckner said previ-
ously. "So I. think it's im-
perative that we make any
attempt to recover any of
those losses that were due
to the county."
Other local governments
have also filed claims
against BP, with the city
of Tampa seeking $50 mil-
lion in alleged losses.

Storm closes
Wyoming roads
DENVER (AP) Snow
from a persistent spring
storm system has shut
down hundreds of miles
of interstates in Wyoming
and Nebraska.
Some highways are also
closed in Colorado, and
the weather is delay- .
ing flights out of Denver
International Airport. The
snow has also postponed
Wednesday's baseball
game between the Colo-
rado Iockies and New
York Mets.
It's been snowing off and
on in parts of Wyoming
and Colorado for three
days, but the storm is
expected to start heading
east Wednesday evening.
Snowpack levels have
usually peaked by this
time, but the critical
Colorado Basin has grown
to 85 percent of the aver-
age peak amount aftersa
relatively dry winter.

Levity greets Hagel in
Senate return
.WASHINGTON Sena-
tors who nearly buried
Defense Secretary Chuck
Hagel found reasons to
praise him on Wednesday.
Seven weeks after his
bruising Senate confirma-
tion fight, Hagel fielded
questions on the defense
budget, Afghanistan, Syria
and North Korea in his
first appearance before
the Armed Services Com-
mittee since it narrowly
approved his nomination
in February on a bitter,
party-line vote.
j, Among the questioners


were Republicans bwho
three months ago insisted
that the former GOP sena-
tor was ill-prepared for the
top Pentagon job and even
some who insinuated that
the decorated Vietnam
War veteran was cozy with
enemies such as Iran.
What a difference a job
and several high-profile
decisions make.
"My friend, Secretary
former Senator Hagel.
We worked together for a
long period of time. Had
.some difference of opin-
ion. We'll always remain
good friends," said Sen.
Jim Inhofe of Oklahoma,
the top Republican on the
.committee.

American Airlines
resumes most flights
DALLAS -American
Airlines resumed most
flights Wednesday, a day
after a massive technology
failure forced the nation's'
third-largest carrier to
ground all planes from
coast to coast.
Some lingering prob-
lems remained. At midday,
American and regional
offshoot American Eagle
had canceled more than
200 flights, according to
flight-tracking service
FlightAware.com. But that
was a huge improvement
over Tuesday, when Amer-
ican and Eagle cancelled
nearly 1,000 flights and.
delayed another 1,100.
"Our operations re-
turned to normal .this
morning," American
Airlines spokeswoman
Andrea Huguely said.
Some of Wednesday's
cancellations were


because of bad weather
in Chicago and a lack of
crews and planes in the
right places. The airline
added five unscheduled
flights to accommodate
passengers stranded in
Chicago, Dallas and Los
Angeles, Huguely'said.
The company blamed
the breakdown on a "soft-
ware issue" that knocked
out both primary and
backup computer reserva-
tion systems, which are
also used for everything
from issuing boarding
passes to determining
how much fuel to pump
into planes.

Supreme Court limits
foreign abuse suits
WASHINGTON
- The Supreme Court
on Wednesday drasti-
cally limited the ability of
foreign victims of hu-
man rights abuses to use
American courts to seek
accountability and mon-
etary damages for their
suffering.
The decision was a
major victory for corpo-
rations that have been
sued in.the United States
over their alleged role in
foreign atrocities. The
court undercut a more
than 30-year-old strategy
by human rights lawyers
to use civil lawsuits to
pursue individuals who
may be responsible for
torture and other atroci-
ties, as well as companies
with operations in coun-
tries with poor records
in the area of human
rights.

Miss. man accused of sending letter with ricin


The Associated Press
OXFORD, Miss. A Mis-
sissippi man was arrested
Wednesday, accused of
sending letters to Presi-
dent Barack Obama and
a senator that tested posi-
tive for poisonous ricin
and set the nation's capital
on edge a day after the Bos-
ton Marathon bombings.
Paul Kevin Curtis, 45,
was arrested at 5:15 p.m. at
his apartment in Corinth,
near the Tennessee state
line about 100 miles
east of Memphis, said FBI
Special Agent in Charge
Daniel McMullen. It
wasn't immediately known
where he was being
held.
Authorities still waited
for definitive tests on the
letters to Obama and Sen.
Roger Wicker, R-Miss. Pre-
liminary field tests can'
often show false posi-
tives for ricin. The letters
were intercepted be-
fore reaching the White
House or Senate. Ricin is
derived from the castor
plant that makes castor oil.
There is no antidote and
it is at its deadliest when
inhaled.
An FBI intelligence bul-
letin obtained by The As-
sociated Press said the two
letters were postmarked
Memphis, Tenn. ,
Both letters said: "To see

As authorities scur-
ried to investigate three

from at least three sena-,
tors' offices in their home
states.
Sen. Carl Levin said a staff

ing a suspicious letter. The

Senate blocks


expanded gun sale


background checks


The Associated Press
WASHINGTON-- Senate
Republicans, backed by a
small band of rural-state
Democrats, turned away
legislation Wednesday to
tighten restrictions on the
sale of firearms, reject-
ing repeated appeals from
President Barack Obama
and personal pleas by fam-
ilies of the victims of last
winter's mass elementary
school shooting in New-
town, Conn.
Attempts to ban assault-
style rifles and: high ca-
pacity ammunition maga-

down votes four months
after a gunman, killed
20 elementary school
children and six staff
members at Sandy Hook
Elementary.
The background check
measure commanded a
majority of senators, 54-
46, but that was well short
of the, 60 votes 'needed
to advance. Forty-one
Republicans and five
Democrats sided to scuttle
the plan.
In the hours before the
key vote, Sen. Joe Man-
chin, D-W.Va., bluntly ac-
cused the National Rifle
Association of making false
claims about the expan-
sion of background checks
that he and Sen. ,Pat
Toomey, R-Pa.,. were
backing.
"Where I come from in
West Virginia, I don't know
how to put the words any.

a lie. That is simply a lie,"
T he said, accusing the or-
ganization of telling its
supporters that friends,
neighbors and some
family members would

checks would not have

Criminals do not submit

Chuck Grassley,
Senator, R-Iowa

to 'transfer ownership
of firearms to one another.
The NRA did not
respond immediately to
the charge, but issued a
statement after the vote
that restated the claim.
The proposal "would
have criminalized cer-
tain private transfers of
firearms between hon-
est citizens, requiring
lifelong friends, neigh-
bors and some family
members to get federal
government permission
to exercise a fundamental
right or face prosecution,"
said a statement from
Chris Cox, a top lobbyist
for the group.
Said Sen. Chuck Grass-
ley, R-lowa, "Expand-
ed background checks
would not have prevented
Newtown. Criminals do
not submit to background
checks."
Senate votes were set
on a total of nine provi-
sions, some advanced
by lawmakers on each
side of an issue in which
Democrats from rural or
Southern states generally
lined up with the over-
whelming majority of
Republicans.
Whatever the out-
come, the events were
unlikely to be the last word
on an issue that Demo-
cratic leaders shied away
from for nearly two de-
cades until Obama picked
up on it after the Newtown
shootings.

Sen. Jeff Flake, R-Ariz.,
said suspicious letters at
his Phoenix office had
been cleared with nothing

age at Sen. John Cornyn's
Dallas-area office also was
declared harmless.
All three packages in the
Capitol complex turned
out to be safe, Capitol
police spokeswoman


Makema Turner said
late Wednesday.
Senate Sergeant-at-Arms
Terrance Gainer said that
an individual who was
responsible for the sus-
picious packages in the
Hart and Russell Senate
office buildings on Tues-
day was detained and re-
leased on Wednesday. The
packages were not
hazardous.
Gainer said the man was
"not particularly harm-
ful, although terribly
disruptive."
AlU the actidiry came
as tensions were high in
Washington: and across
the .country following
NMonday's bombings at
the Boston Marathon that
killed three people and in-
jured more than 170. The
FBI said there was no in-
dication of a connection
between the letters and
the bombing.' The letters
to Obama and Wicker were
postmarked April 8, before


the marathon.
Obama's press secre-
tary, Jay Carney, said mail
sent to the White House is
screened at a remote site
for the safety of the recipi-
ents and the general pub-
lic. He declined to com-
ment on the significance
of the preliminary ricin
result, referring questions
to the FBI.
Capitol Police swiftly
ramped up security, and
lawmakers and staff were
cautioned away from
some parts of the Hill com-
plex. After hours of jangled
nerves, officials signaled it
was safe to move through-
out the area.
At a House hearing,
Postmaster 'General Pat-
rick Donahoe noted there
had been ricin alerts since
the notorious 2001 an-
thrax mailings and pro-
cedures are in place to
protect postal employ-
ees and help track down
culprits.

Poplar turns back Malone


MARK SKINNER / FLORIDAN
Malone's Jakivia Hearns rounds third as the Lady Tigers rally during their
district tournament playoff game against Poplar Springs Tuesday night.


BY DUSTIN KENT
dkent@jcfloridan.com'

The Malone Lady Tigers' bid
for a trip to the state playoffs was
turned back Tuesday night in the
semifinals of the District 1-1A
tournament, as the host Poplar
Springs Lady Atomics took an 8-
4 win to end Malone's season.
The Lady Atomics'scored three
runs in the first inning and four
more in the third to jump out to
a 7-0 lead and limited Malone to
its four fourth-inning runs.
With the win, Poplar Springs
advanced to tonight's champi-
onship game against Central,
while the Lady Tigers' season
ends with a record of 8-10.
Ashlyn Golden started in the
circle and went the distance to


get the win for Poplar Springs,
giving up three earned runs on
seven hits 'and a walk with four
strikeouts.
Jakivia Hearns took the loss
for the Lady Tigers, starting and
giving up seven runs in three in-
nings, with Sheyanna Chambliss
giving up one run over the final
three innings.
"It was just a tough game,"
Malone coach Preston Roberts
said. "We made a lot of errors,
and the Poplar coach did a great
job of changing up. the game
plan from the first two times
they played us. They mixed a lit-
tle small ball with some big-girl
ball. They laid down good bunts
and ran the bases effectively and
their big-time hitters got big hits.
I give them credit.


"But our girls didn't quit. They
gave 110 percent, which is all a
coach can ask for."
Beth Hall went 3-for-3 with a
double, a walk, two RBI, and a
run for the Lady Atomics, while
Savannah Ryken was .3-for-3
with a double, a walk, two runs,
.and an RBI, and Kelli McIntosh
was 3-for-4 with a double and a
run.
Chambliss and Sara Newsom
each went 2-for-3 to lead Malo-
ne, with Hearns going 1-for-3.
The Lady Tigers put a small
rally together in the seventh in-
ning, with Newsom and Sabra
Cullifer both reaching base to
bring Hearns up with two outs,
but Golden recorded her biggest

The game got much more inter-
* testing late than Chipola would've
liked, but in the end, the Indians
still came away with a very impor-
tant 6-5 victory over the visiting
Northwest Florida State Raiders on
Wednesday night in Marianna..
After nearly giving up a six-run
lead when the Raiders scored five
runs in the eighth innii?g, the Indi-
ans held on in the ninth to improve
to 8-8 in the Panhandle Confer-
ence and pull even with Gulf Coast
State for second place in the league

Only the top two teams in the
conference get to move 6n to the

Freshman pitcher Michael Mad-
er delivered perhaps his finest per-

night to take his fifth consecutive
Panhandle victory.
Mader went seven scoreless in-
nings and allowed just three hits
and two walks while striking out
three with just 78 pitches.

Jackson dominates in Hornets win


BY DUSTIN KENT
dkent@jcfloridan.com

Trent Jackson pitched a
complete game shutout and
struck out 12 batters to lift
the Cottondale Hornets to
ah 11-0 win over the Malo-
ne Tigers on Tuesday night
in Malone.
Jackson allowed just three
hits and two walks on the
night, picking up his fourth
win of the season and his
first shutout in just his sec-
ond start of the year.
Hornets coach Greg Ohler
said .that the senior right-
hander has emerged in re-
cent weeks as the team's
most reliable option on the
mound.
"Trent has definitely been
our best overall pitcher
lately," he said. "He's doing
a great job of keeping hit-
ters off-balanced and has
great command of all of his
pitches."
Jackson also helped him-
self out at the plate, going 1-
for-2 with a double, a walk,
two RBI, and two runs, while
Willie Pippin and Thomas
Lipford each went 2-for-4
with a run and an RBI.
Jake Kernoschak was also
1-for-4 with two RBI and
two stolen bases, with Wes-
ley Spooner going 1-for-3
with a walk and two runs,

the win and even up the sea-

Bulldogs hold


offMarlins

BY DUSTIN KENT
dkent@jcfloridan.com

The Marianna Bulldogs notched their second
win in as many nights Tuesday evening at home,
holding off a late charge by Arnold to take an 8-6
victory at Bulldog Field.
MHS was coming off of a 7-3 win over Sneads
on Monday night and added another to the win
column Tuesday thanks largely to a solid pitch-
ing performance from Adam Dewitt.
Dewitt went all seven innings on the mound
arid allowed just two earned runs on nine hits
and a walk with five strikeouts to get the victory.
Arnold got off to a fast start with three first in-
ning runs, but Marianna tied it up with three of
its own in the bottom of the inning, and added
two in the second and one in the third to go up
6-3.
A two-run sixth put the Bulldogs up 8-4, with
the Marlins posting two runs in the top of the
seventh but falling two short of extending the
game.
MHS won despite being out-hit 9-5, with Tyler
Colson leading the way with two hits and two
RBI.
JT Meadows was 1-for-3 with a walk and an
RBI, while Reid Long was 1-for-3 with two runs,
and Brad Middleton was 1-for-3 with a walk and
two runs.
Taylor Strauss also walked twice and scored a
run.
With the win, the Bulldogs improved to 14-9
on the year and will finish up the regular sea-
son tonight in Bristol against the Liberty County
Bulldogs.

S2013 by NEA, Inc., dist. by Universal Uclick 4-18


Dear Annie: My husband's parents are
in their mid-70s. They are both in good
health and financially stable. The prob-
lem is, my mother-in-law has a bit of
hypochondria along with some anxiety.
She has self-diagnosed herself with many
"syndromes" (such as fibromyalgia, rest-
less leg, irritable bowel), and she refuses
to exercise. Her syndromes, which are
exacerbated by her anxiety, keep her
from getting out of the house, unless it
involves an activity that she truly enjoys,
like shopping.
My in-laws don't have a wide social
circle, and Mom refuses to try to make
new friends. You can't have a conversa-
tion with her without the topic turning
to her various maladies. I believe this is
causing her some depression. Outtown
has many great programs for seniors, and
I know both of my in-laws would benefit
from them. I have repeatedly suggested .
to my mother-in-law that she get outside
more, get some exercise, volunteer, take
classes at the senior center, etc., but


Bridge
So far this week, we have been looking at de-
fenses in no-trump contracts aided by placing
declarer's high-card points based on the bid-
ding and play. Let's move to trump contracts.
South is in four spades. West leads the heart
ace. How should East plan the defense?
The auction given is using Standard. If you W
have adopted two-over-one game-forcing,
North would rebid three spades because the 4
opener's hand strength is undefined. Then t
South would bid four spades to indicate a
minimum.
East does not want his partner to shift, so
should signal with his heart nine at trick one.
West cashes the heart king and plays his third
heart. After East wins with his queen, what
does he do next?
East should count the points. South showed
12 to 14, the dummy has 13, West has already
produced seven, and East has seven. Since all
four jacks are on view, West cannot have an-
other honor card. The only chance for a fourth
trick lies in the trump suit.
East must lead his last heart. Here, when
West ruffs with the spade nine, it uppercuts
dummy's queen and promotes a spade trick
for East. When you have taken every possible
side-suit trick, give a ruff-and-sl ff. It might
result in a trump promotion or a uppercut.


Horoscope
ARIES (March 21-April
19) -When in a discus-
sion with another, you
might suddenly have an
ingenious flash of inspira-
tion. If this happens, do
not treat it lightly.
TAURUS (April 20-May
20) Someone whom
you'd like to know better
is also eager to learn more
about you.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20)
- Although unexpected
success is likely to come
through an unusual chain
of events, this doesn't
mean that you should
leave things to chance.
CANCER (June 21-July 22)
-You're in an interesting
cycle where friendships
are concerned, and some
intriguing people could
soon enter your life.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)
- A well-intentioned
friend could have an
interesting proposition.
It could produce copious
benefits for both of you.
VIRGO'(Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
-A colleague is as eager
as you are to firm up a
partnership arrangement.
However, both parties
need assurance that it'll be
fair and equitable.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23)
- This is one of those
unusual days when some
peripheral benefits could
be more impressive than
you'd hoped.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov.
22) Spontaneous events
will likely turn out to be
the most fun. Be sure
your schedule isn't overly
structured.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-
Dec. 21) Improvements
in your material circum-
stances should begin very
soon.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan.
19) Good news could
be delivered via a strange
pipeline. It could pertain
to something either social
or romantic, and will be
quite interesting.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-
Feb. 19) -Your financial
trends may be going back
and forth. Because it's
likely to be one of your
more favorable days, make
it meaningful.
PISCES (Feb. 20-March
20) -You're making
a good impression on
others, and this will be re-
flected in your popularity.


she refuses.
Annie, I understand that Mom may
have some physical ailments, but being
'home all day and inactive surely can't be
making her better. It's so important to re-
maii physically and mentally active, and
it's frustrating to see a wonderful couple,
a wonderful woman, throw her "golden
years" away.
FRUSTRATED DAUGHTER-IN-LAW

Dear Daughter-in-Law: Your heart is in
the right place, but please don't pres-
sure your mother-in-law to take care of
herself the way you would. While exercise
would be great, it only works if she's will-
ing to do it. To some extent, she likes her
various maladies and isn't ready to get rid
6fthem.
The best you can do right now is sug-
gest that she see her doctor to be prop-
erly tested, evaluated and treated. And if
you find a program at the senior center
that you think she would like, offer to
pick her up and go with her.

permission for something,"
Jackson said with a laugh.
The American Red Cross
arranged temporary ac-
commodations for Jackson
and the children at a local
motel, and Jackson said she
is still trying.to figure out
where they'll go long term
until insurance matters
can be straightened out.
The ARC is also providing
some clothing and food to
help them get through the
next few days.
Saying she felt that God-
win, her 5-year-old grand-
daughter, needed the
normalcy of school, and
because she needed time
to make the' rounds nec-
essary because of the fire,
Jackson sent the young-
sters to school and day
care Wednesday morning;
the two youngest are 1 and
2 years old. Angelica had
an important test at school
and was supposed to play
volleyball. All her sports
gear burned in the fire, in-
cluding a brand new pair
of tennis shoes that Jack-
son bought just a few days
ago.
The Marianna Fire De-
partment assisted Jackson
County Fire Rescue in put-
ting out the fire, the teams
using approximately 6,000
gallons of water.
JCFR, Chief Tony Wesley
said initial reports indi-
cate that the fire started
in the kitchen, possibly
at the stove, but that the
state fire marshal has been
-called, in to gather more
information.


Boston Iar. ... ,, .,..'


THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
Boston University student Joy Liu places a note at a memorial on the campus for Boston Marathon bombing victim Lu Lingzi in Boston Wednesday.



Official: Video footage shows suspect


The Associated Press

BOSTON In what could be
major break in the Boston Mar-
athon case, investigators are on
the hunt for a man seen in a de-
partment store surveillance video
dropping off a bag at the site of
the bombings, a local politician
said Wednesday.
Separately, a law enforcement
official confirmed that authorities
have found an image of a suspect
but don't know his name.
The development less than
48 hours after the attack, which
left three people dead and more
than 170 wounded marked a
possible turning point in a case
that has investigators analyz-
ing photos and videos frame by
frame for clues to who carried out
the twin bombings and why.
City Council President Stephen
Murphy, who said he was briefed
by Boston police, said investiga-
tors saw the image on surveil-
lance footage they got from a de-
partment store near the finish line
and matched the findings with
witness descriptions of someone
leaving the scene.
"I know it's very active and very
fluid right now that they are
on the chase," Murphy said. He
added: "They may be on the verge
of arresting someone, and that's
good."


The bombs were crudely fash-
ioned from ordinary kitchen
pressure cookers packed with ex-
plosives, nails and ball bearings,
investigators and others close to
the case said. Investigators sus-
pect the devices were then hid-
den in black duffel bags and left
on the ground. As a result, they
were looking for images of some-
one lugging a dark, heavy bag.
One department store video
"has confirmed that a suspect
is seen dropping a'bag near the
point of the second explosion and
heading off," Murphy said.
A law enforcement official who
was not authorized to discuss the
case publicly and spoke to The
Associated Press on the condi-
tion of anonymity confirmed only
that investigators had an image of
a potential suspect whose name
was not known to them and who
had not been questioned.
Several media outlets reported
that a suspect had been identified
from surveillance video taken at
a Lord & Taylor department store
between the sites of the bomb
blasts.
The turn of events came with
Boston in a state of high excite-
ment over conflicting reports of a
breakthrough.
A law enforcement official
briefed on the investigation told
the AP around midday that a


suspect was in custody. The of-
ficial, who was not authorized to
divulge details of the investiga-
tion and spoke on the condition
of anonymity, said the suspect
was expected in federal court. But
the FBI and the U.S. attorney's of-
fice in Boston said no arrests had
been made.
By nightfall, there was no evi-
dence anyone was in custody.
No one was taken to court. The
law enforcement official, who
had affirmed there was a suspect
in custody even after, federal,of-
ficials denied it, was unable to
.obtain any further information or
explanation.
At least 14 bombing victims
remained in critical condition.
Dozens have been released from
hospitals, and officials at three
hospitals that treated some of the
most seriously injured said they
expected all their remaining pa-
tients to survive.
On Wednesday, investigators in
white jumpsuits fanned out across
the streets, rooftops and awnings
around the blast site in search of
clues. They picked through trash
cans, plastic cup sleeves and dis-
carded sports drink dispensers.
* Boston remained under a heavy
security presence, and some peo-
ple admitted they were nervous
about public spaces.
Tyler King, a personal trainer


from' Attleboro who works in
Boston, said four of five clients
canceled on him a day earlier be-
cause they were worried about
venturing into the city. He took
the train in, but "I kind of kept my
head on a swivel."
Kenya Nadry, a website design-
er, took her 5-year-old nephew to
a playground.
"There's still some sense of fear,
but I feel like Boston's resilient,"
she said. "The fine men in blue
will take care of a lot of it."
Police were stationed on street
corners across downtown Boston,
while National Guardsmen set up
tents on the Boston Common and
stationed tactical vehicles.
Dr. Horacio Hojman, associate
chief of trauma at Tufts Medical
Center, said patients were in sur-
prisingly good spirits when they
were brought in.
"Despite what they witnessed,
despite what they suffered, de-
spite many of them having life-
threatening injuries, their spirits
were not broken," he said. "And
I think that should probably be
the message for all of us that
this horrible act of terror will not
bring us down."
President Barack Obama and
former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt
.Romney planned to visit Boston
today to. attend a service honor-
ing the victims.


Silence
From Page 1A ,
something else in the way
of memory."
Final race registration is
from 6:40-7:40 a.m. on Sat-
urday, with the moment of
silence to be observed just
before the start of the race
at 8 a.m. Runners can also
pre-register at the festival
on Friday at a station locat-
ed next to the main stage
on the grounds of Citizens
Lodge.
Entry fee is $22. The races
will commence at the same
time. The 5K is a walk/run,
and the 10K is strictly a
run. There will be trophies
for the top overall male and
female winner; and medals
for the. top three finishers
in each age group.
It's devastating for every-
body," Lamb said. "We have
a lot of friends who run
those long distances, but
thankfully we didn't have
anyone there this year that
we know of. I was at work
when I heard about it, and,
I just felt sick. I thought
about all the people who
just went out to sup-
port the race, the friends
and family and complete
strangers who took the
time to 'do that, only to be
put in harm's way."
, Lamb said this will flood
her mind in January when
she participates in the
marathon at Disney. Still,
Lamb said her concerns
won't spoil her plans.


Britain's Iron Lady laid to rest with full pomp


The Associated Press

LONDON Margaret
Thatcher was laid. to rest
Wednesday with prayers
and ceremony, plus cheers
and occasional jeers, as
Britain paused to remem-
ber a leader who trans-
formed the country for
the better according to
many, but in some eyes for
the worse.
Soaring hymns, Biblical
verse and fond remem-
brances echoed under
the dome of St. Paul's Ca-
thedral, as 2,300 relatives,
friends, colleagues and
dignitaries attended a cer-
emonial funeral for Brit-
ain's only female prime
minister.
Queen Elizabeth II, cur-
rent and former prime
ministers and representa-
tives from 170 countries
were among the mourn-
ers packing the cathedral,
where Bishop of London
Richard Chartres spoke of
the strong feelings Thatch-
er still evokes 23 years af-
ter leaving office.
"The storm of conflict-
ing opinions centers on
the Mrs. Thatcher who
became a symbolic figure
- even an -ism,"' he said.
"It must be very difficult
for those members of her
family and those closely

Former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher's coffin is carried by pallbearers out from St
Paul's Cathedral following the ceremonial funeral service in London on Wednesday.


associated with her to rec-
ognize the wife, the moth-
er and the grandmother in
the mythological figure."
"There is an important
place for debating policies
and legacy ... but here and
today is neither the time
nor the place," he added.
Security for the funeral
- the largest in London
for more than a decade
-- was tightened after
bombings at the Boston
Marathon on Monday.
More than 700 sol-
diers, sailors and air
force personnel formed a


ceremonial guard along
the route taken by Thatch-
er's coffin to the cathedral,
and around 4,000 police
officers were on duty.
But while thousands of
supporters and a smaller
number of opponents'
traded shouts and argu-
ments, there was no seri-
ous trouble. Police' said
there were no arrests, and
the only items thrown at
the cortege were flowers.
Before the service,
Thatcher's coffin was
driven from the Houses of
Parliament to the church


of St. Clement Danes for
prayers.
From there the coffin
- draped in a Union flag
and topped with white
roses and a note from her
children Mark and Carol
reading "Beloved mother,
always in our hearts" -
was borne to the cathedral
on a gun carriage drawn
by six black horses.'
Spectators lining the
route broke into applause
as the carriage passed by,
although a few demon-
strators staged silent pro-
tests by turning their backs


on Thatcher's coffin. One
man held a banner declar-
ing "rest in shame."
An honor guard of sol-
diers in scarlet tunics and
bearskin hats saluted the
coffin as it approached St.
Paul's, while red-coated
veterans known as Chel-
sea Pensioners stood to
attention on the steps.
Guests inside the cathe-
dral included Thatcher's
political colleagues, ri-
vals and her successors
as prime minister: John
Major, Tony Blair, Gor-
don Brown and David
Cameron.
Former U.S. Secretary
of State Henry Kissinger
and former Vice President
Dick Cheney were among
the American dignitaries,
while notable figures from
Thatcher's era included
EW. de Klerk, the last
apartheid-era leader of
South Africa; former Pol-
ish President Lech Walesa;
and ex-Canadian Prime
Minister Brian Mulroney.
The late leader's 19-year-
old granddaughter Aman-
da Thatcher read a passage
from Ephesians: "Stand
therefore, having your
loins girt about with truth,
and having on the breast-
plate of righteousness."
It was a classic Thatcher
image.

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


Da3y,ia Bt..rh li,,: J.,iuirl DAVID MASSEY
The Energizer Bunny needs to
have a long tall, with Junior
about battery power.
What happened to
Junior at Texas?
GODSPEAK: Battery lailure.
Don't most teams have a
switch in the cockpit to change
batteries? Earnhardt has
gone real old school. It won't
happen again.
KEN'S CALL: He made more
mistakes than a 15-year-old
in his first day with a learner's
permit. Nowhere to go but up.
What makes Brad Kesel-
owski think he can win a
fight with NASCAR?
GODSPEAK: Get in the cage
with the tiger and expect the
claw. No whip is big enough to
keep the big cat ott you when it
pins its ears back.
KEN'S CALL: You can't blame
his giant mug of Miller Lite.
because he was cleareyed
when he lashed out. And by
the way he can't win.

Since Martin Truex Jr. won his only Sprint Cup race
at Dover in 2007, he's been working diligently toward
returning to Victory Lane.

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


lIt)y irriuz5 JUNAIHAN IFKKLT
IJASCAR penalties and visiting the president
equal.: a busy weekly lor the 2012 Cup Series
chirpiop)r.
Brad Keselowski takes his issues
to the White House?
Well. 'inda Technically, Keselowvi,'s Tuesday
visit to the While Hiuse implyy falls in line
with all ol the other visits, by sports teams.
President Barack iObama ha, apparently made
it his quest to meet ever,,y championship leam
01 every sport, every year It you only read the
sports pages you'd swear it was his intended
presidential legacy. As lor Ke: .eehrng high-level
intervention In hi on running leud with IASCAR
Ohicrals, it's probably not the riohl time or place
- which rneans, :1. courSe. you'd never put it
past him.
Why were all the old-time onlookers
chuckling at Keselowski last week?
Bec-au, during his post-Texas rarit, where'
he accused IIASCAR of unfairly targeting his
team he actually ,',id "We're nol going to tale
it. We're not girn to be treated this way" Funny
sluti. lJASCAP has a .;0-vyear traji record of
doing whatever it wants, to whomever it wants.
Fr as much a: we lile Kesel,'wsi' and ever
it htl anger is justilied his battle is decidedly
uphill
Bruton Smith, Hall of Famer?
Noit so fast iJASCAR released the names
ol the 25 people who made it onto the new
lirt of nominees lor this year s Hall of Famer
voting, anrd Bruton a longtime IIASCAR and
France family nemesis, tinrally made the list.
He might iut gel the vote The nominating
:-'ninmmiee is loaded wilh IJASCAR leaders and
many with close associations. so for Bruton
Smith nomination was probably the
hardest part

FEUD OF THE WEEK


KESELOWSKI PEMBERTON
Brad Keselowski vs. Robin Pemberton:
Inspectors .oniitcated parts from both Penske
Racine cars at Teas. and Keselowki lashed
out against iJASCAR.

Godwin Kelly gives his take: 'I have never seen
someone ,el so emotional about rear housing
parts. Wonder what IJAS(AR finds n the No 2
Ford at Kansa.."
