Former inmate going back to prison


From staff reports
A former inmate of Apalachee
Correctional was sentenced Thurs-
day to spend 63 more months in
prison for his part in an inmate tax
fraud scheme, according to a press,
release from the U.S. Department
of Justice.
Michael William Joseph III, 53,
had pleaded guilty in January to 41
counts of violating various federal
criminal laws, including conspiracy
to defraud the government with re-
spect to claims, conspiracy to com-
mit mail fraud, 24 counts ofifiling


false claims and 15 counts of theft
from the government.
U.S. District Judge
Richard Smoak also
ordered that almost
$30,000 be forfeited
to the U.S. as pro-
5. ceeds of Joseph's
7 federal crimes. These.
Joseph funds include money
that law enforcement
officials seized from
his bank account, and fraud-related
money that was found buried in
the back yard of a Tampa home in
2009.


According to the release, Joseph
conspired with others to file 81 false
claims for tax refunds from Feb.
2008 through July, 2012, using the
names and other personal informa-
tion of 41 Florida Department of
Corrections inmates in the scheme.
Most of the refunds, officials say,
were directed to a bank account
under Joseph's control, or sent
in checks to the residence of his
mother.
Joseph was indicted on the charg-
es in July of 2012, accused of claim-
'ing more than $179,000 worth of
fraudulent returns.

FWC okays gopher tortoise permit guidelines


Staff Report
Because the .humble gopher tor-
toise is listed as a threatened spe-
cies, the Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission seeks to
protect it as its native habitats are
disrupted and developed in human
pursuit of progress.
To help balance the scales, FWC
oversees a program in which tor-
toises can be relocated to other
lands before their original homes
are plowed over. In one option,
the original landowner or his agent
enter an agreement with another
landowner who is willing to commit
his property as a perpetual gopher
conservation area.
Typically, the original owner pays
the conservation owner a one-time,
per-t6rtoise fee for taking on the
relocated critters. The going price
these days, according to an estimate
by an FWC representative, is run-
ning in the range of $850-$1,000 for

and Nick McCarty pre-
sented his own arrange-
ment of contemporary fa-
vorite, "You Are My Hiding

Domenico Scarlatti's "So-
nata L. 238" by Brandon

tened in awe as the reso-
nance of the strings filled
the chapel.
The BCF Guitar Ensem-
ble, consisting of Brandon
Mejias, Kyle Boone, Kevin
Greene and Guitar Profes-


sor Jay Erp also amazed
the audience with their
outstanding blended

FRIDAY, APRIL19. 2013


The life and Times of



John McCandlish Phillips


The word on the
Brooklyn streets in
1959 was that a crazy
preacher from Pennsylvania
was helping addicts find
the power to kick heroin
and gang members to trade
their weapons for Bibles.
Reporter John McCandlish
Phillips heard the talk in
local churches and took the
tip to his metro editors at
The New York Times. This
was more than a religion
story, he argued. This was
something truly new in
urban ministry in a rough
corner of the city.
The editors just'didn't get it.
"The New York Times
could not see ... validity of
this approach to any issue
as serious as addiction.
Editors said, 'You can't put
a few religious ideas up
against something as real
as addiction and expect any
results,'" said Phillips, in a
2000 interview in Riverside
Park.
The young preacher was
David Wilkerson, whose
story would eventually be
told in the best seller "The
Cross and the Switchblade."
Phillips kept bringing edi-
tors detailed reports about
Teen Challenge's work,
which would eventually
expand worldwide.
Again, Phillips stressed
this was not a story full
of mumbo jumbo. As a
veteran reporter, he knew
he needed a foundation of
hard facts about subjects
drug addiction and gang
warfare that were clearly
newsworthy. After a decade,
his editors surrendered and
let him write the story.
"The results were there,"
he said. "Lives were being,
changed.... It was news. We
miss too many stories like
that, and that's a shame."
Phillips died on April 9
at the age of 85. His bril-
liant, two-decade Times
career ended when he left


the newsroom in 1973, at
the peak of his journalistic

powers, to
become a
Pentecostal
preacher on
Manhattan's
Upper West
Side. His
flock was
small, but in-
cluded some


Christians in major news-
rooms who considered him
a discreet and invaluable
mentor.
No one questioned the
man's journalism skills. In
a 1997 profile in The New
Yorker- "The Man Who
Disappeared" writer Gay
Talese was quoted calling
him the "Ted Williams of
the young reporters," even
on a legendary staff that
included David Halbers-
tam, Richard Reeves and J.
Anthony Lukas.
"There was only one guy I
thought I was not the equal
of, and that was McCan-
dlish Phillips," said Talese.
"Phillips is not interested in
winning a Pulitzer Prize. He
is not interested in demean-
ing people.... He wants to
redeem people. Talk about
marching to a different
drummer. Phillips is not
even in the same jungle."
On the management side,
the Times obituary noted
-that former Managing Edi-
tor Arthur Gelb once called
Phillips "the most original
stylist I'd ever edited."
The reporter's death also
fired online discussions
of a controversial issue in
mainstream journalism:
Whether many newsrooms
are hostile environments for
religious believers. A pro-
vocative piece at The Week
ran under a headline stat-
ing, "Why newspapers need
to hire more Christians:
For starters, it would help
rebut conservative concerns
about media bias."


Decades before today's
"culture wars," Phillips
noted that he was the onie
born-again, evangelical
Protestant in a Times news-
room in which liter-
ally there were more
bookies than people with
Bibles on their desks. With
a tired cackle, he told me,
"God must love journalists,
because everyone knows he
loves sinners."
Yes, it would help if there
were more religious believ-
ers at The Times, he said,
but only if they had the
skills to work there. He
couldn't understand why so
many young believers sim-
ply assume they could never
work in real newsrooms,
thus increasing the cultural
and intellectual diversity in
modern journalism.
"We live in a world that is,
in fact, rife with evils, is rife
with excessive ambition, is
rife with a willingness, by far
too many people, to cut any
corner or to practice any
deception in order to ad-
vance their purposes. They
will hide, if they can, their
practices from the public
eye," he said.
"Journalism at its best
pursues the facts about
certain situations in which
evildoers are at work and
assembles those facts and
judges them fairly. It's not
a crusade, so much as it's a
responsible gathering of a
body of evidence that, when
it's finally presented, is so
persuasive that evil must
skulk, retreat or be subject-
ed to strong public remedy."
Phillips looked out across
the Hudson River, into a
setting sun.
"Why," he said, "wouldn't
Christian believers want to
be part of that?"

Fly-In at the Tri-County Airport.


BCF represented




at fly-in and expo


Special to the Floridan

The Baptist College
of Florida was recently
represented at one of
the top air shows in
the world, SUN 'n FUN
International Fly-In &
Expo, which was held in
Lakeland. BCF President
Thomas A. Kinchen and
several trustees manned
an exhibit booth an-
swering questions ahd
promoting the new
aviation program at the
college.
In addition to speak-
ing with prospective
students who visited
the booth, representa-
tives from BCF were
able to work with other
mission's aviation agen-
cies including the In-
ternational Association
of Missionary Aviation,
New Tribes Mission,
JAARS Inc., Mission
Aviation Fellowship,
United Indian Missions
and several others. '
"For many years it has


been our dream to pro-
vide every type of train-
ing possible to carry the
Gospel to all areas of
the earth. This program
will provide the finest
in theological prepara-
tion along with state of
the art pilot training. We
are not trying to prepare
aviators who may or
may not be missionar-
ies; we are trying to pre-
pare missionaries who
will be able to use avia-
tion as a tool for spread-
ing the Gospel," stated
Dr. Kinchen regarding
the program.
The goal of SUN 'n
FUN, a nonprofit cor-
poration, is to "Build a
Brighter Future through
Aviation." Every year
sponsors, exhibitors,
advertisers, volunteers,
airshow performers
and guests join together
to celebrate aviation.
Since BCF is one of the
only Christian colleges
to offer an aviation pro-
gram, this event pro-


vided greater visibility
as to what God is do-
ing at BCF in mission's
aviation.
The Bachelor of Arts
degree in Missions with
a Concentration in Avia-
tion is designed to inte-
grate practical missions
education with certified
flight training in order
to equip vocational mis-
sionaries, pastors and
other church leaders to
be effective in their min-
istries and independent
in their travel. The BA
contains 122 semester
hours which includes
the general education
foundation, Biblical/
theological foundation,
missions major core and
aviation concentration.

Understanding the millennial generation is key


A s the economy
improves, business
I- owners may begin
seeing some turnover in
their staff. Whether these
employees are in search of
higher salaries or simply
choosing to make their
move now that the job
market is better, many
young workers (those in
the millennial generation)
will want to migrate to
new jobs.
Millennials (born after
1980) make up more than
one-third of the workforce
and they are a dominant
force as consumers as
well. For both these rea-
sons, entrepreneurs need
to pay careful attention to
the desires and objectives
of this generation.
Loyalty is not something
that typically motivates
millennials. Now that they
no longer fear an anemic
job market, many may
view this as the opportu-
nity to find employment
that better suits their
wants.
Businesses that do not
know how to attract mil-


lennials may find them-
selves dealing with some

turnover,
and the cost
of replac-
ing these
workers is
incredibly
high.
Millen-
nials are
not known
to be the


hardest of workers (unless
properly motivated), but
they do have a very large
social conscience. It is
critical that entrepreneurs
understand this about
millennials.
This group of workers
needs to feel that the com-
pany they work for has a
redeeming social pur-
pose. They have seen the
problems with unfettered
capitalism and they see
pure capitalism as a way
for the rich to get richer
without caring about the
under-served in our coun-
try or the environment.
To attract and retain this
generation, businesses
must become much more


committed to being a
fairer and better place to
be employed.

feel is the most important
thing about working for
a company. Normally,
the responses vary by age
group. Baby boomers say
they want more money,
whereas millennials typi-
cally say they want to have
a balanced life and be
involved with a firm that
cares about the envi-
ronment or has a social
conscience.
First Commerce Credit
Union understands mil-
lennials and does a partic-
ularly good job developing
practices that appeal to
their sensibilities.
To be fair, I must
disclose that I am chair-
man of the board of First
Commerce and receive
zero salary for this posi-
tion. However, I can say
without bias that they do
a great job encouraging
each of their team mem-
bers to get involved with a


nonprofit. Paid time off as
well as financial support
are provided as a means
to encourage staff to be
involved in the organiza-
tions of their choice.
Such national com-
panies as Whole Foods,
Panera, Starbucks,
Nordstrom's and Ben and
Jerry's demonstrate a clear
understanding of how
important it is that their
businesses have social
goals.
Now go out and make
sure your strategic goals
have significance both for
your business and society.
Failing to do so will put
your business at risk.
You can do this!

Mother-in-Laws Will Needs Updating


Dear Bruce: My mother-
in-law is in her 80s.
She has a will that was
redone by an attorney
six years ago after my
father-in-law died. Her
assets are to be divided
equally among her four
children upon her
death.
Since the will was drawn
up, her oldest (unmarried)
son passed away, so his
share would presumably
go to his daughter. A few
days ago,.my mother-in-
law informed us that she
gave one of her other sons
a tremendous amount of
money ($40,000) to help
him make a larger down
payment on a house. She
said, "You can deduct it
from his inheritance after
I'm gone."
She is on a fixed income
and moderately comfort-
able, but even if all goes
well during her last years,
she will be lucky if she
has $160,000 to divide
four ways in the end. She
despises attorneys and is
not likely to revise her will
again.
Is there any other way
that her intent could be


BruceWilliams
Smart Money

noted other than with a
revision to the will? Could
she write a letter to that
effect and have the letter
notarized? My husband is
the designated executor to
the will, if that makes any
difference. .
We have always been
on good terms with my
husband's siblings. I think
she truly believes that
we'll all just work it out,
but I fear this is the sort of
thing that might tear the
family apart if not handled
correctly.
D.Q., IN GEORGIA

Dear D.Q.: Your mother-
in-law could not be more
mistaken in her belief
that you'll just work it out.
The will should specifi-
cally say that so-and-so
is not acknowledged as a
primary recipient because
of monies that had been


advanced to him and
other issues. Then, she
can ask that the primary
monies be divided three
ways until such time as ,
each person has received
whatever amount she
* had advanced to the one
sibling, and then the
remainder could be split
four ways.
The fact that she
despises attorneys is
absolute nonsense. If she
wants to cause all kinds of
problems with her family,
just let things go the way
they are. But if she has any
love for her children, she
will do as I have described
with the services of a
proper attorney.
Your fear that this could
tear the family apart is
completely valid. I hope
she will listen to you and
to me.

Lawmakers pass bill to



end permanent alimony


The Associated Press

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. -
Florida lawmakers Thurs-
day approved a bill ending
permanent alimony even
while Florida Bar lobbyists
have been trying to per-
suade Gov. Rick Scott to
veto it.
The House passed the bill
(SB 718) 85-31, with mem-
bers of both parties cross-
ing over. For example, Rep.
Jared Evan Moskowitz, a
Coral Springs Democrat,
debated in favor and voted
for it; Republican Rep. Seth
McKeel of Lakeland voted
against it.
The Senate previously
approved it 29-11. If made
a law, Florida would be the
fifth state to abolish per-
manent alimony.
Scott's office said he
would review the bill, but
bill sponsor Ritch Work-
man, a Melbourne Repub-
lican, is confident the gov-
ernor will sign it.
That's assuming the
Bar, which licenses and
regulates the state's 90,000
lawyers, doesn't ,rear him
down.
The Bar's "Family Law
section has now spent a
couple of hundred thou-
sand dollars on a couple
of lobbyists to lobby the
governor for a veto," Work-

) There's a 2:15 p.m.
cook's meeting on Satur-
day, where all the particu-
lars of .the cook-off will be
discussed. Anumbered lot-
tery drawing will be held at
2:30 p.m. to determine in
what order the cooks will
select the first steak they
want to cook. Then, to se-
lect the second steak, the
order will be reversed so
that the cook with the last


man told reporters. "It's a
desperate move."
Tallahassee attorney
Thomas Duggar, a lead
member of The Florida
Bar's Family Law section,
declined comment onilob-
bying efforts.
He did say the bill would
force parties into court, in-
stead of settling, for nearly
every alimony action.
"It basically invalidates
a spouse's decision to stay
at home and raise kids,"
Duggar said. "He's calling it
pro-family. If your spouse
stays home, and you have
an affair with your secre-
tary and you walk out, this
will make it easier for you.
How is that pro-family?"
The proposal sets limits
on the amount of alimony
and how long one would
receive financial sup-
port from an ex-spouse,
though judges would be
able to exercise discre-
tion in some cases, such
as when a spouse, has a
disability.
It would make it harder
to get alimony in short-
term marriages and would
generally prevent alimony
payments from lasting
longer than one-half of the
length of the marriage,
The bill defines a short-
term marriage as less than
11 years, in which there's

)) Each steak must be
cooked to a temperature
of at least 125 degrees.
) The meat must be
cooked on the festival
grounds, within the 75-
minute time allowed. The
cooking gets. underway
at 2:45 p.m., and must be
completed by 4 p.m.
Martin says that 15
teams have already signed
up to cook. "We thought
that steak would be a good
choice for the local cook-
off that we try to do every
year at the festival, because


an assumption that alimo-
ny would not be awarded.
If alimony is granted, it
would not be more than 25
percent of the ex-spouse's
gross income.
For failed marriages be-
tween 11 and 20 years,
there's no assumption
either way, but alimony
would not amount to more
than 35 percent of the ex-
spouse's gross income.
And in long-term mar-
riages, those longer 20
years, there would be an
assumption in favor of
alimony, though not more
than 38 percent of an ex-
spouse's gross income.
Moreover, the bill doesn't
automatically end alimony
when the paying ex-spouse
retires, but that person
could ask a judge to reduce
the payment or even end
it. The judge can consider
age at retirement, ability to
pay alimony and the finan-
cial situation of the person
receiving alimony.
Rep. Barbara Watson, a
Miami Gardens Democrat,
said the measure ultimate-
ly discriminates against
women who decided to
be housewives, then were
discarded when their "hip
size changed from 36 to
46." They will be unlikely
to rejoin the workforce
with success, she said.

This is an opportunity to
just cook like you would

work to the test without
having to compete with
professionals who have
big expensive rigs and ex-
pensive imported beef,"
Martin said.
As for the professional
barbeque contest, par-
ticipation has reached a
record level. According
to barbecue coordinator
Richard Kunde, 26 teams

for the good of the tortoise
population. Those cove-
nants stay with the proper-
ty through any subsequent
changes of ownership.
The agency has rules as-
sociated with that reloca-
tion program, regulations
meant to ensure that the
gopher tortoises have a via-
ble second home through-
out their remaining life-
times and throughout the
lives of their offspring. The
relocation process is gov-
erned by permit.
On Thursday, the agency
approved changes in the
permit rules which FWC of-
ficials say will more closely
mirror changes made in
2012 to the overall gopher
tortoise management plan.
Developed with input from
stakeholders, FWC says
the new rules provide bet-
ter guidance regarding the
financial planning and
proof of stability the
receiving property must
provide. It also sets out
new language regarding
acceptable procedures for
the capture of gopher tor-
toises using backhoe ex-
cavation, and new criteria
regarding the suspension,
revocation or non-renewal
of authorized permit when
appropriate.
FWC's ultimate goal is to
restore gopher turtle popu-
lations to the point that the
species no longer needs be
listed as threatened.



Cookoff
From Page 1A

The daughter of Jonathan
Fuqua, a longtime coordi-
nator of the Paint 'N' Pork
Fest, the Marianna Middle
School 8th grader said she
and her dad have been
grilling at home together
ever since she can remem-
ber, and have spent a lot of
time learning from profes-
sional cooks on their many
festival outings around the
southeast.
This will be the first time
she's competed against a
field dominated by adults,
but says she's not intimi-
dated in the least. Does she
think she can beat them
all?
"Easy," she said.
She said she hasn't been
practicing for the cook-off
in particular, but feels she's
ready for the challenge
based on overall experi-
ence. She said that, while
she and her dad have simi-
lar tastes when it comes to
cooking, she will take her
own path in this competi-
tion. In any case, he'll be
too busy with festival du-
ties to be of any help on
Saturday and is probably
banned from assisting her,
anyway.
She says she's not sure
what spices she'll take
from home to flavor her
steaks, but that she has
tried many combina-
tions at home through the
years. She and her dad
sometimes combine liq-
uid marinades with addi-
tional spices dry-rubbed
on top of their steaks, for
instance. She does know
that she plans to cook her
steaks medium-rare.
One of her biggest sec-
ondary decisions has to
do with her attire for the
event. She has a special
zebra apron, which has her
initials on it, that she wore
in both the previous cook-
offs in which she placed.
But she's not sure it would
be a good luck charm or
not-after all, she pointed
out, she didn't take first
place when she wore it
before. And she's going for
all the marbles this time
around.

Crews seek survivors, bodies after Texas blast


The Associated Press
WEST, Texas Rescuers
searched the smoking rem-
nants of a Texas farm town
Thursday for survivors
of a thunderous fertilizer
plant explosion, gingerly
checking smashed houses
and apartments for any-
one still trapped in de-
bris while the community
awaited word on the num- -
ber of dead.
Initial reports put the fa-
talities as high as 15, but
later in. the day, authori-
ties backed away from any
estimate and refused to
elaborate. More than 160
people were hurt.
A breathtaking band of
destruction extended for
blocks around the West
Fertilizer Co. in the small
community of West. The
blast shook the ground
with the strength of a small
earthquake and crumpled

S* THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
Firefighters use flashlights early Thursday morning, April 18, to search a destroyed apartment
complex near a fertilizer plant that exploded Wednesday night in West, Texas. The massive ex-
plosion killed as many as 15 people and injured more than 160, shaking the ground with the
strength of a small earthquake and leveling homes and businesses for blocks in every direc-


tion.
ment complex, a school
and a nursing home. Its
dull boom could be heard
dozens of miles away from
the town about 20 miles
north of Waco.
Waco police Sgt. William


Patrick Swanton described
ongoing search-and-res-
cue efforts as "tedious and
time-consuming," noting
that crews had to shore up
much of the wreckage be-
fore going in.,


There was no indication
the blast, which sent up a
mushroom-shaped plume
of smoke and left behind a
crater, was anything other
than an industrial acci-
dent, he said.


The explosion was ap-
parently touched off by a
fire, but there was no in-
dication what sparked the
blaze. The company had
been cited by regulators
for what appeared to be
minor safety and permit-
ting violations over the
past decade.
The Wednesday night
explosion rained burning
embers and debris down
on terrified residents. The
landscape Thursday was
wrapped. in acrid smoke
and strewn with the shat-
tered remains of buildings,
furniture and personal
belongings.
Firefighter Darryl Hall
choked up as he described
the search.
"You're strong through
it because that's your
job. That's what you've
been trained to do. But
you're reminded of the
tragedy and your family.
And that it could be you,"


Hall said. "Then it's a com-
pletely different story."
While the community
tended to its deep wounds,
investigators awaited
clearance to enter the blast
zone for clues to what
set off the plant's huge
stockpile of volatile
chemicals.
"It's still too hot to get
in there," said Franceska
Perot, a spokeswoman for
the Bureau of Alcohol, To-
bacco, Firearms and Ex-
plosives, later adding that
she wasn't sure when. her
team would be able to start
its investigation.
The precise death toll
was uncertain. Three to
five volunteer firefighters
initially were believed to
be among the dead, which
authorities said could
number as many as 15.
But the state Department
of Public Safety later said
the number of fatalities
couldn't be confirmed.

This combination of images released by the FBI on Thursday,
-April 18, show two images taken from surveillance video of
who the FBI are calling suspect number 2, left, in white cap,
and suspect number 1, right, in black cap, as they walk near
each other through the crowd before the explosions.

FBI issues photos of two

suspects in Boston bombing


The Associated Press
BOSTON The FBI re-
leased photos and video
Thursday of two suspects
in the Boston Marathon
bombing and asked for the
public's help in identify-
ing them, zeroing in on the
two men on surveillance-
camera footage less than
three days after the deadly
attack.
The photos depict one
man in a dark baseball cap
and the other in a white
cap worn backward. The
men were seen walking
one behind the other in
the crowd, and the one
in the white hat was seen
setting down a backpack
at the site of the second
explosion, said Richard
DesLauriers, FBI, agent in


charge in Boston.
"Somebody out there
knows these individu-
als as friends, neighbors,
co-workers or family
members of the sus-
pects. Though it may
be difficult, the nation
is counting on those
with information to come
forward and provide it to
us," DesLauriers said.
The images were re-
leased hours after Presi-
dent Barack Obama
and first lady Michelle
Obama attended an in-
terfaith service at a Ro-
man Catholic cathedral in
Boston to remember the
three people killed and
more than 180 wounded
in the twin blasts Monday
at the marathon finish
line.

Another year, another district,
championship for the Marianna
Lady Bulldogs, as the team claimed
their third straight league title
Thursday night with a 10-0 win over
the visiting Walton Lady Braves in
the District 4-1A final.
Taylor Hussey.pitched a five-in-
ning one-hitter with three walks
and eight strikeouts to get the win
for MHS, with the Lady Bulldogs


getting three runs in the third and
six more in the fourth to blow the
game open.
With the win, Marianna earns the
right to host its first-round game of
the 4A playoffs against the runner-
up from the District 2 tournament.
The Lady Bulldogs won the first of
their three straight league titles in
2011 when they were still in Class
3A and have now gone undefeated
in District 1 back-to-back seasons
since moving up to 4A.
"We're just elated to win three
districts in a row," Marianna coach
Scott Wiggins said after the game;
"It shows the dedications, the
heart, and commitment this team
has shown. I think we're playing
a little better this year than last,
so we're looking forward to the;

Indians have


control of their


postseason fate


BY DUSTIN KENT
dkent@jcfloridan.com
With just four Panhandle
Conference games left this
season, the Chipola Indians
find themselves in a position
they've sought all season, con-,
trolling their own destiny to get
to the state tournament.
After falling to 4-7 in confer-
ence play with an April 5 loss
to Gulf Coast State, the indi-
ans have rallied to win four of
their last five Panhandle games
to pull even with the Commo-
dores for second place in the
league standings at 8-8.
Chipola will take on Pensac-
ola State on the road today be-
fore'hosting the Pirates on Sat-
urday, with a home-and-home
against Gulf Coast to finish the
season.
The Commodores will have
their hands full with Panhan-
dle champion Tallahassee this
weekend, but Indians coach
Jeff Johnson said he's not pay-
ing any attention to that series.


"We've just got to worry about
ourselves. I can tell you this,
if we win the last four games,
we're going to be in the state
tournament," he said. "It's all in
.our hands. We're the only team
We've got any control over.
Anything less than (winning
all four games) and we leave
a chance on the table to get
knocked out, so we've just got
to play our best baseball. If we
can do that, I'm confident that
things will turn out good."
The Indians got their eighth
victory Wednesday night over
Northwest Florida State de-
spite nearly letting a six-run
lead through seven innings slip
away.
Nick Masonia hit a grand slam
in the eighth, off of Chipola re-
liever Cole Evans, but Evans
settled down and closed the
game out with a perfect ninth.
Michael Mader got the win,
his fifth in a row in the Pan-
handle, going seven scoreless

Lady Indians take


two from TCC


BY DUSTIN KENT
dkent@jcfloridan.com

The Chipola Lady Indians
made it consecutive double-
header sweeps Thursday eve-
ning in Marianna, taking wins
of 4-3 and 8-5 over the visiting
Tallahassee Lady Eagles.
In the first game, the Lady
Indians overcame a 3-2 deficit
late with runs in the bottom
of the fifth and seventh, with
a bases-loaded walk to Hayley
Parker scoring Shannon Black
for the winning run.
Chipola got the early lead
thanks to an RBI bunt single
by Stephanie Garrels to score
Kristen Allen in the third and
an RBI single by Katie Harrison
to score Parker in the fourth to


make it 2-0..
TCC broke through against
Lady Indians starter Eva Voort-
man in the top of the fifth for
three runs, with a two-RBI
single by Ashley Heath-Smith
and an RBI double by Brenda
Santana giving the Lady Eagles
the lead.
Voortman started and went
6 2/3 innings in the circle, al-
lowing three earned runs on six
hits, five walks and two strike-
outs before being replaced by
Karissa Childs with one out in
the seventh.
A single by Marina Cobbs and
a walk to Heath-Smith gave the
Lady Eagles a pair of base run-
ners with one out in the final

In Miami: Bird is the word


Andersen giving Heat a huge boost


The Associated Press

MIAMI It takes four losses
for a team to be eliminated from
the NBA postseason, as anyone
who follows the league surely
knows.'
So here's another statistic
among the many that would
support the reigning champion
Miami Heat carrying the role
of overwhelming favorite into
these playoffs: Chris Andersen
hasn't been part of four losses
,this season.
Total, that is.
Andersen appeared in 42
games with the Heat during this
regular season. They went 39-3


in those games.
And sure, Anders-
en averaged only
4.9 points and
4.1 rebounds
in those con-
tests, so clearly it
wasn't his statis-
tics that provided
the difference
between winning
and losing most
nights.
What Miami
sought when it
signed Andersen


"'ar delivered. And he'll likely
t continue to have a big role

the playoffs, which open

Andersen got roughly
80% of his tattoos

for 2-years by the NBA
for substance abuse.

ern Conference first-
round series.

sively he gives us an
element of keeping
teams honest when
they put two on the
ball," Heat coach Erik

On those counts, he's constantly to have gotten him."


Conference
first round matchups


Heat vs. Bucks
a Season series: Heat won 3-1
s Storing leaders: Heat forward
LeBron James (26.8 PPG), Bucks
guard Monta Ellis (19.2 PPG).
a Why Miami will win: The Heat
are with out a doubt the best
team in the NBA. James and Dwy-
ane Wade should be able to score
at will on the Milwaukee defense.
) Why Milwaukee will win:
James, Wade and Chris Bosh all
fall to season ending injuries in
Game 1.
Prediction: Heat in 4.





Knicks vs. Celtics
Season series: Knicks won 3-1
p Scoring leaders: Knicks
forward Carmelo Anthony (28.7
PPG), Celtics forward Paul Pierce
(18.6 PPG).
) Why New York will win:
Anthony has something to prove
to hisnaysayers. J.R Smith is
finding his stride and the Knicks
are gelling once again.
)) Why Boston will win: Never
count out Pierce and Kevin Gar-
nett. The Knicks have struggled
getting out of the first round.
Prediction: Celtics in 7.





Pacers vs. Hawks
Season series: Tied 2-2
' Scoring leaders: Pacers
forward Paul George (17.4 PPG),
Hawks forward Josh Smith (17.5
PPG).
) Why Indiana will win: Defense,
defense, defense. Led by George,
the Pacers' have top defenders at
every position.
) Why Atlanta will win: The
Hawks have shooters and if Kyle
Kover and DeShawn Stevenson
are hitting open shot, Atlanta is
tough to beat.
Prediction: Pacers in 6.






Nets vs. Bulls
) Season series: Bulls won 3-1
Scoring leaders: Nets forward
Brook Lopez (19.4 PPG), Bulls
forward Luol Deng (16.5 PPG).
) Why New Jersey will win:
Deron Williams is as good as any
point guard in the league 'capable
of getting his teammates involved
or putting them on his back.
) Why Chicago will win: Bulls
have a lot of depth despite the
absence of Derrick Rose. Defen-
sively Chicago is very good and
will try to neutralize Williams and
Lopez.
Prediction: Bulls in 5.



Lottery teams:
76ers (34-48), Raptors (34-48),

lieved by Preston Johnson
to start the eighth.
Mader had thrown only
78 pitches when he left
the game, but the fresh-
man was on four days rest,
and the Chipola coach said
that his bullpen has to be
prepared to close games
out if the Indians are going
to make noise at the end of
this season.
"If you don't have two
relievers in the bullpen
who can win a game, then
you don't deserve to win,"
he said. "Michael threw
a great game. He didn't
have his best stuff, but he
was still able to get people
out and that's the sign of
a good pitcher. He didn't
command the ball as well
as he can, but he got some
quick outs and he compet-
ed. That's what he's doing
really well for us."

team in a broader sense.
"I told our guys last week
that we've got 10 days to
go and we're not close to
where we're supposed to be
and we haven't peaked. But
if we can be as good as we
can be for the next 10 days
then we'll give ourselves a
chance to get even better
in the state tournament,"
the coach said. "We have
a chance here to make im-
provements, and if we can
do that, then we'll have a
chance.
"I've been disappointed
with how we've played, but
if we get better, it's amaz-
ing how you can play good

your face at the end."

luckier if you finalize some
important matters now in-
stead of tomorrow.


Annie's Mailbox


Dear Annie: I have grown children from
my first marriage. I now have a 7-year-
old son from my second marriage, and
we are home-schooling him.
My older children, who all attended
public school, aren't terribly keen on
this. One of them, "Jenny," criticizes
home-schooling and then gets into what
she considers insufficient socialization.
She says if her baby brother doesn't turn
out right, it's because I deprived him of
something. When she's finished with that
topic, she criticizes the condition of our
30-year-old house. Then she says my
house is too cluttered, which I admit, but
it's fairly well organized, and I regularly
donate old clothing and appliances.
Jenny has offered to help me with the
clutter, but I suspect that's an excise to
throw away all of my things.
Jenny's latest complaint is that I've
"changed" and she can no longer talk to
me. We used to be able to. talk about ev-
erything, and now Jenny feels that I bring
up God too often. My faith has deep-
ened, but I remind Jenny that I am still
the mother I've always been, albeit older.
But she has decided to cut off communi-


Bridge

In this deal, South is in four spades. West
leads the diamond king. How should East
plan the defense?
If you have adopted two-over-one game-
force, North would rebid two spades. Then
'South, with that unappealing singleton club, Wet
would probably jump to four spades. But if A J
he settles for three spades, North should be V 7
happy with four spades. Despite his good-
looking heart honors, his trumps are poor
and he has only one ace. '9 9
Yes, this deal is a complement of yester-
day's. First, East signals enthusiastically with
his diamond nine. West continues with his
queen, then leads his third diamond. After
winning with his ace, what should East do
next?
As I have been stressing all week, East
should check the points. West has produced
five, the dummy has 14, and East holds six. Sc
Thatleaves 15 points unaccountedfor. IfWest 1'
had the heart ace, he should have cashed it 2V
before playing the third diamond. So the de- 4
fenders cannot have another side-suit trick.
East should lead his last diamond. Here, that
promotes a trick for West's spade jack.


cation for an unspecified period of time,
saying she "needs space."
Jenny has an illness that flares up peri-
odically, and she takes steroids regularly.
I'm concerned that this is affecting her
behavior, making it more extreme. I sug-
gested she speak with her doctor, but she
insists the steroids aren't a problem.
I'm baffled and hurt. We used to have
wonderful talks. Her little brother adores
her, and it breaks my heart to think their
relationship has been put on hold. Any
advice?
UPSET UP NORTH

Dear Upset: You may be right about the
steroids, but even so, you cannot force
J'enmiy to address it. You need to back -
off a bit and let Jenny work through this
herself. Send her a note saying you love
her and miss her, but you will respect
her decision and wait for her to get in
touch. If nothing changes within, say, six
months, you might consider asking one
of your other grown children to act as an
intermediary to find out whether more is
going on and how you might be able to
improve things.

Orlando Magic Season in Review


Team optimistic after year without Howard


The Associated Press
ORLANDO It will be
hard not to look back on
the Orlando Magic's 2012-
13 campaign as being
similar to an expansion
season.
It certainly resembled
one on paper.
From a roster filled with
first- and second-year
players, to far too many
lopsided losses to count,
and ironically the exact
same 12-29 home record
as in their inaugural sea-
son, the only thing that
seemed missing in Year 1
of the post-Dwight How!-
.ard era was a ribbon-cut-
ting ceremony.
A deluge of injuries
also had a role in the
stark, regression follow-
ing Howard's offseason
departure.
Still, following a league-

Orlando Magic head coach Jacque Vaughn calls out a play during the game against the Miami
Heat, Wednesday in Miami.


worst 20-62 finish, in many positively in regards to
ways the Magic go into the their on-going rebuilding
offseason viewing the year process.


"We won 20 games, so I
can't really give myself a
pat on the back," general


manager Rob Hennigan
said Thursday regarding
the state of the team. "We
feel good about how we're
positioned for the future.
We feel good about the
players we have. But ev-
ery man. knows that we
have a lot of work to do
still."
Not only do the Magic
have the best chance to
land the top pick in the
upcoming NBA draft lot-
tery, they have a cache of
future draft picks and in-
creasingly more salary cap
space to work with going
forward.
That may not be a titillat-
ing proposition for fans to
ponder, but is one Henni-
gan insists is of value.
"We have a challenge
ahead of us. We know we
have to get better. We be-
lieve we will get better, and
I think the group we were


able to establish this sea-
son is a really good start-
ing point," he said. "We're
still a ways out, but I would
think we're a little bit clos-
er than maybe the percep-
tion tells us."
The Magic have to wait
until the May 21 draft lot-
tery to find out where
they will be picking in
June. After six consecu-
tive seasons in the play-
offs, it will be their first
lottery appearance since
2006 when they drafted J.J.
Redick.

College football


Contract gives NBC Notre


Dame rights through 2025


The Associated Press
NBC Sports Group an-
nounced a 10-year con-
tract extension to tele-
vise Notre Dame football
games Thursday, doubling
the length of its previous
agreement.
NBC and Notre Dame
said the extension would
begin in 2016 and run
through the 2025 season.
Terms were not disclosed,
though the current five-
year contract is reportedly
worth an average of $15
million annually.
NBC' will have global
media rights on all plat-
forms to a minimum of
seven Notre Dame home
football games each year,
with most airing on NBC.
The deal also allows for
games to be carried on the
NBC Sports Network cable
channel.
NBC has held Notre
Dame' football TV rights
since 1991.
"Coming off one of Notre
Dame's best and most dra-
matic seasons in decades,
we could not be more


proud to extend this his-
toric partnership, which
continues to be one of the
most innovative in sports-
media history," NBC Sports
Group chairman Mark
Lazarus said. '"We are par-
ticularly, excited that this
extension-offers enhanced
rights that allow us to
bring Notre Dame football
to fans on more platforms
than ever before.",
Notre Dame athletic di-
rector Jack Swarbrick said
the addition of the NBC
Sports Network will al-
low for greater exposure
for the football team and
other Notre Dame sports
programs.
David Bank, a New York-
based equity research
analyst who specializes in
sports rights fees for RBC
Capital Markets, said the
new contract probably will
generate "meaningfully
more" revenue for Notre
Dame than the previous
deal. He said he couldn't
estimate how much
more.
College sports TV rights
fees have been going up


and will continue to do so
with the start of the Fox
Sports 1 cable network
in August, Bank said. He
said he wasn't surprised
at the announcement
of the NBC-Notre Dame
extension.
"Fox Sports 1 has NBC
Sports playing defense,"
Bank said. "It's imperative
to lock down content that
is left."
Notre Dame's football
team finished the regular
season 12-0 last season
and lost to Alabama in the
BCS championship game.
According to NBC Sports
Group, the Irish averaged
4.4 million viewers and a
2.8 household rating for
its seven games on NBC
in 2012. That marked a 69
percent increase in viewers
and 67 percent increase in
household rating com-
pared with 2011.
Notre Dame plans to
continue .using revenue
from the contract to fund
the school's financial-aid
endowment for the gen-
eral student body, not in-
cluding athletes.

Jeter out until


after All-Star


break for Yankees


The Associated Press
NEW YORK Yankees
captain Derek Jeter will
be sidelined until after the
All-Star break because of a
new fracture in his injured
left ankle.
Jeter was hurt last Oc-
tober in the opener of
the AL championship se-
ries. He played sparingly
in spring training and
started the season rehab-
bing at the team's minor
league complex in Tampa,
Fla.
After three straight
days of workouts, the 38-
year-old shortstop went
to Charlotte, N.C., and.
was examined Thurs-
day by Dr. Robert Ander-
son, who operated last
fall.
"They did a new CT scan
which revealed a small
crack in the area of the pre"
vious injury, so we have to
back off and let that heal,"
Yankees general. manager
Brian Cashman said be-
fore New York played Ari-
zona. "This is obviously a
setback. In terms of specu-
lating on when we might
see Derek back with us,
we'd be looking at some
time* after the All-Star
break."
Jeter is among four All-
IStars missing from the


Yankees' lineup, joined by
third baseman Alex Rodri-
guez (hip),
first base-

did noTeixnk Jeter dida
too much too soon ield his
er Curtis
Granderson
Jeter (arm).
Cashman
did not think Jeter did
too much too soon in his
rehabilitation.
"Clearly he hasn't done
anything wrong," the GM
said. "He was cleared to
play. This is the third CT
scan he's had. His prior
two CT scans showed the
healing and 100 percent
healing. He wasn't cleared
for the baseball activities
and cleared to play until he
had 100 percent healing,
so this is a new fracture,
but a small one. That's I
guess the only good part.
They kept saying the word
small. But it's a setback, so
it's not a good situation."
Jeter will not require
surgery for the new break,
Cashman said after speak-
ing with Anderson.
"He told me 95 per-
cent of the people that
have this, they come back
from it fine. You just have
to back off," Cashman
said.
