Letter to Lucifer, mutilated dolls found in search


BY DEBORAH BUCKHALTER
dbuckhalter@jcfloridan.com

A letter to, Lucifer, some
mutilated dolls, several fire-
arms and an alleged death
threat against a game war-
den may have helped a fed-
eral judge decide last Fri-
day in favor of detaining a


convicted felon from Jack-
son County as a "danger
to society" until his trial
on new drug and firearms
charges.
A federal grand jury in
Panama City indicted 56-
year-old Edward Victor Wil-
liams earlier this month on
charges of manufacturing


and possessing a controlled
substance with intent to
distribute, an alleged of-
fense involving 50 or more
marijuana plants, the
indictment indicated.
The grand juryalso indict-
ed Williams on the alleged
offense being in unlawful
possession of a firearm.


The dolls, the letter, some
firearms and a stand of
live marijuana plants were
found on property associ-
ated with Williams, authori-
ties say. The dolls, plants,
some firearms and an ille-
gal tortoise trap were found
on some hunting lands
with which Williams is


associated, that property
located south of Christ-
off Ferry Road off Bump
Nose Road in Marianna.
The letter was found at
his residence in Jackson
County. One firearm was
recovered at the bottom of a

From staff reports
The 16-year-old girl that was
reported missing last week is
back with her mother, according
to the Jackson County Sheriff's
Office.
The agency issued a press re-
lease on Friday about Rebekah
Anne Newsome, who report-
edly left home sometime in the
evening on Sunday, April 21.
JCSO said Monday that on Sun-
day, April 28, at approximately
8:30 p.m., Newsome had been re-
ported located by her stepfather.
The child was returned safely
to her mother, officials say.

Hunting

for bargains,

helping out

center
BY MARK SKINNER
Bargain hunters were backing a
good cause Saturday during a yard
sale fundraiser for the Chipola
Area Autism Resource Center,
The group started its life in 2010
as a support group and expand-
ed to become the Chipola Area
Autism Resource Center last year.
While it is still a autism support
group, it now also provides re-
sources such as help in locating
medical care- and it hosted a two-
day autism education program.
Saturday's sale brought in $500.
According Syntha Alvarez, the
group's director of education, ser-
vices, the money will go toward
the resource center's effort to col-
lect $5,000 in matching funds to
go with a $5,000 grant proposal for
Autism Speaks. The grant would
be used for autism education for
parents the community.
The group has other short- and
long-term plans, Alvarez said.
These include gettingthe group's
house on Davis Street up and run-
ning so that it would be able to
host activities for children with
autism and provide a space for
support meeting.
A longer term goal is to bring
more services such as speech and
occupational therapy to the area.
While some are available in
the larger towns around Jackson
County, such as Dothan, Panama
City or Tallahassee, other more,
specialized services may be three
hours away, she said.

Cherished holly tree


"butchered' by crew

Routine maintenance shocks Cypress family


BY ANGIE COOK

When Connie Adams
drove her mother Lillian
Hatcher back home after a
doctor's appointment last
week, what the two found
outside their Cypress home
was shocking.
A cherished holly tree
that sits on the corner of
their Mill Avenue yard had
been "butchered," Ad-
ams said. A crew clearing
branches and brush from
near area power lines had
drastically changed the
tree, dulling its tall, coni-
cal shape into a markedly

'Triumph Gulf Coast'
bill upsets counties
TALLAHASSEE A
consortium of eight Gulf
Coast counties is raising
an alarm about a Florida
Senate bill that creates a
nonprofit board to man-
age money from settle-
ments from the 2010 Gulf
of Mexico oil spill.
The Gulf Consortium
met Monday to discuss
the bill (SB 1024).
The bill-creates a
nonprofit "Triumph Gulf
Coast" board to safeguard
any funds recovered by
Attorney General Pam
Bondi. The attorney
general sued BP and Hal-
liburton before the statute
of limitations expired on
the 2010 disaster's third
anniversary.
The counties are con-
cerned over losing local
control.
But amendments filed
this week would ensure
the new board would
not control Gulf recovery
money coming from the
federal RESTORE.Act. The
bill was scheduled for the
floor Monday but was


postponed.

Man charged with
killing 4 puppies
NEWPORT RICHEY -
A Tampa Bay area man has
been charged with beating
four pit bull puppies to
death with a shovel.
The Pasco County
Sheriff's Office reports
that 21-year-old David Lee
Thompson went to a New
Port Richey mobile home
Friday to help his friend
move. The friend and his
father began discussing
what to do with the pup-
pies since the son couldn't
afford to keep them. An
arrest report says the fa-
ther suggested taking the
puppies into the woods
and killing them.
The son told deputies
he "didn't have the guts,"
so Thompson reportedly
killed the puppies. The
three men buried the ani-
mals and scattered dead
leaves on the site.
,The friend's stepmother
learned about the pup-
pies ahd contacted animal
services.
Thompson was charged


Saturday with animal
cruelty. He was being held
on $5,000 bail.
The other men weren't
charged.

Special-needs bill
clears Senate
TALLAHASSEE- The
Florida Senate has passed
a bill that would give
parents a greater say in
shaping the education
plans for their special-
needs children.
The measuXe (SB 1108)
cleared the Senate on a
39-0 vote Monday. Similar
legislation is being con-
sidered in the House with
time winding down in
the 60-day session, which
ends Friday.
The Senate-passed bill
gives-parents a greater say
in shaping the curriculum
and individual education
plan for their special-
needs children. "
Sen. Andy Gardiner,
R-Orlando, says that
increasing the options for
the parents will give the
students a better chance
to succeed. Gardiner is the
bill's lead sponsor along


with Sen. John Thrasher,
R-St. Augustine.
The bill also ensures that
students with disabilities
have access to the profes-
sionals and resources that
will best serve them.

Girl hospitalized after
accidental shooting

The Associated Press


TAMPA, Fla. -A
Nashville family is suing a
media company and two
others in federal court in
Tennessee after they say a
Tampa radio show posted
an altered photograph of
their son with Down syn-
drome on its website.
In a lawsuit filed April
22, Pamela and Bernard
Holland said that the use
of their son's photo on
WHPT's "The Cowhead
Show" website was mali-
cious and defamatory.
The Hollands said in
the lawsuit that the photo
of their son was taken in
2004 when Adam Holland
was 17 and in an art class.
In the original photo,
Adam is smiling at the
camera and holding up
a drawing that included
the words "Go Titans,"
referencing Tennessee's
professional football team.
In July 2012, according
to court documents, the
Hollands were contacted
by a friend who saw the
photo on the radio station
website. The photo had
been altered to show the
words "Retarded News" in
place of his original draw-


"This is a case where an innocent individual has
been victimized. The Holland family and this
young boy are the picture of innocence, and for him
to be the victim of this type of maligning is a case
that calls for toughening of the laws in this area."
Larry Crain,,
Holland family attorney


ing and was on a portion
of the website used for
weird news stories.
The Hollands say that
the altered image has
caused them "severe men-
tal anguish and emotional
distress," and "humilia-
tion, fear and embarrass-
ment." They are seeking
compensatory and puni-
tive damages.
The station is owned by
Cox Media Group. Spokes-
man Andy McDill wrote in
an email to The Associated
Press on Monday that the
company is looking into
the matter.
"It's our company policy,
however, not to comment
on ongoing litigation,"
McDill wrote.
Adam Hollarnd's photo
was not on the show's
website on Monday.
Larry Crain, the Holland
family's Nashville attorney,


said Monday that this case
highlights the need for
strengthening laws involv-
ing altered and unauthor-
ized photos.
"Many of the laws
protect celebrities and
who, for name recognition
purposes, have a special
interest in protecting their
name and privacy," he
said. "This is a case where
an innocent individual has
been victimized. The Hol-
land family and this young
boy are the picture of
innocence, and for him to
be the victim of this type
of maligning is a case that
calls for toughening of the
laws in this area."
Crain said that this case
has "touched a nerve" with
a lot of people and his of-
fice has received outraged
calls from around the
country.
The altered image made


its way to a Facebook
group called "Spread the
Word to End the Word,"
which raises awareness
about the hurtful and
derogatory connotation of
the word "retarded."
The lawsuit said that
Michael Sharkey, the pro-
gram director for WHPT,
wrote the group regard-
ing Adam's photo. The
lawsuit quoted Sharkey's
email, which said that the
"Retarded News" segment
is "is designed to highlight
odd stories that are seem-
ingly always in the news."
"These stories are NOT
about disabled individu-
als," Sharkey wrote. "How-
ever, in our investigation,
we noted the picture that
he was using did denote
a person with Down syn-
drome. We have removed
that picture from our page
and we are removing any
reference to handicapped
or disabled individuals."
Sharkey apologized for
"any grief this might have
caused."
The Hollands' lawsuit
also names Dave Brown,
the owner of an Oswego,
N.Y.-based website called
"Sign Generator," as a
defendant.

Adams says her mother simply
asked, "How could they do that?"
For a story published late last

talked to the Floridan about the
tree's history. She told us about
her mother's longtime wish to

Lpted to investigate
er, Vic threatened to
m and fled in reverse
into the woods," the
Ld officer reported
t his conversation


with the first officer that
day. Other officers were
called into assist at that
point, the officer reported,
and Williams eventually
agreed to give himself up
to two specific Jackson
County law enforcement
officers if his brother
could be summoned to
the scene. After those of-
ficers and his brother ar-
rived, officials say, Wil-
liams, at first continued to
ignore commands to put
his hands up and lie on
the ground. Eventually,
however, he complied and
was arrested.
Tracking dogs were
deployed to follow Wil-
liams' trail back through
the hunting lands in an
attempt to find the rifles
that had disappeared
from the truck between
the time he surrendered
and the time the first of-
ficer encountered him
that day. Williams told
officers that he'd put the
muzzle-loading rifle un-
der a deer feeder and that
there was no need for the
canines, but officers per-
sisted with the search and
used the dogs. They found
one of the guns, a muzzle-
loader, near a deer feeder.
Another gun was found
near another deer feeder,
but not the second gun
that the officer had seen


in the truck.
That gun was harder to
find.
Along the way in their
search, officers also found
an enclosure that had been
built over a gopher tortoise
hole, effectively trapping
the tortoise inside.
Just before 1 a.m. on the
morning of Feb. 2, an of-
ficer went to the home of
Judge Bill Wright and ob-
tained search warrants for
the hunting property and
Williams' vehicle.
Later that morning,
around 3:30 a.m., state
officials went to the jail,
where Williams had been
taken, and issued him a
notice to appear on a ci-
tation for assaulting a law
enforcement officer, tam-
pering with or fabricating
physical evidence and re-
sisting an officer without
violence.
Meanwhile the property
search continued. Around
7:45 a.m. that day, they
discovered several sus-
pected marijuana plants
growing behind a pile of
limbs near the deer feeder
where the first gun had
been found earlier. Later
that evening, a dive team
found a high-powered
rifle in a small, man-made
20-foot deep pond on the
hunting property and it
matched the description

Prominent lawyer to
represent bombing suspect
BOSTON Prominent death ,
penalty lawyer Judy Clarke is
joining the team representing the
suspect in the Boston Marathon
bombings.
The appointment of Clarke,
based in San Diego, Calif., was
approved Monday by U.S. Magis-
trate Judge Marianne Bowler.
Bowler denied a request from
Dzhokhar Tsarnaev's public
defender to appoint a second
death penalty lawyer. Bowler
says Tsarnaev's lawyers could
renew their motion to appoint
another death penalty expert if


to mow brush beneath power
lines and within 20 feet of poles,
as well as trim limbs, bushes or
trees within the same 20-foot


Tsarnaev is indicted.
The 19-year-old Tsarnaev
has been charged with using
a weapon of mass destruction
during the April 15 marathon.
Three people were killed and
more than 260 injured when two
bombs exploded near the finish
line.
Clarke's clients have included
Unabomber Ted Kaczynski; Su-
san Smith, who drowned her two
children; and most recently Tuc-
son, Ariz., shooter Jared Lough-
ner. All received life sentences
instead of the death penalty.

Man accused of stabbing
choir at church is charged
ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. The
man accused of stabbing four
churchgoers during Sunday Mass
told police that he was after the
choir leader because he thought


of the gun they had been
trying to find.
The text of the hand-
written letter later found
inWilliams' residence is as
follows: "Oh Devil, Oh De-
mon, oh Lucifer, I humbly
apologize for committing
acts of kindness and com-
passion to my fellow man.
I apologize for not carry-
ing out the oath of evil.
I come now and request
that you have your fire
ants from hell release their
toothy grips from me, that
they return to the holes in
hell and that they are able
to relax, for they must be
tired. They have done a
great job of delivering a
round of misery unto me.
I have learned my lesson. I
will make you proud. May-
be not as much as Charlie,
Adolf, Castro and other
great ones of the (unread-
able). But that will be my
goal-pure evil. Under-
stand, though, that some
times I will have to use
compassion and kindness
as camouflage to position
my SELF to carry out evil.
Please trust me, I am evil."
The signature on the let-
ter appears to read "Viz
"GD" Williams."
Some of the mutilated
dolls found on the hunt-
ing property appear to
bear evidence of having
been subjected to fire.
At least one had a nail or
similar object piercing on
eye and was tacked to a se-
ries of boards. Some dolls
had their hands bound,
some were mutilated in a
sexually suggestive way,
authorities say, and it ap-
peared that the arms of a
Teddy bear were bound
together with duct tape. Its
body was pierce through
by a primitive spear, and
it was hanging from a
tree with a red substance
smeared in some areas of
the bear's body.

holly tree, the company said, had
become a safety hazard for the
Hatcher family and the workers.
This type of trimming is done,
WFEC said, because live trees in
contact with power lines can pose
a serious life threat and most out-
ages are related to ROW issues
and contact between trees and
lines. Customers are notified of
upcoming ROW work, the com-
pany said, through the monthly
WFEC newsletter.
Ty Peel, vice president of Engi-
neering and Operations atWFEC,
offered an apology on behalf of
the company.
"Occasionally, these unfortu-
nate situations are going to hap-
pen and we are going to trim a
tree that has ... a sentimental
meaning to one of our members.
We sincerely apologize to Mrs.
Hatcher for the incident."
For her part, Adams isn't upset
with the crew. And she's hopeful
about WFEC's assurances that
they will try to reshape the tree.
Eyeing the newly round holly
bush from her back porch, Adams
is optimistic.
"I can see a pretty tree coming
out of it."

the man was a member of a
secret society.
According to a criminal
complaint, Lawrence Capener,
24, said he was going after the
choir leader at St. Jude Thad-
deus Catholic Church because
his "speech was.different" and
he was "99 percent sure he was a
Mason."
He told the investigator that
Masons are a group involved
"in a conspiracy that is far more
reaching than I could or would
believe."
Capener said he stabbed the
others who tried to subdue him
because he thought they might
be Masons, too.
The affidavit said Capener
apologized for stabbing the oth-
ers after he was read his rights
and agreed to speak to police.

Mandela appears as
an ailing man in video
JOHANNESBURG -
South African President
Jacob Zuma said he found
Nelson Mandela "in good
shape and in good spirits"
Monday, but
a video of
his encoun-
ter with the
S ailing anti-
apartheid
iconl belies
Mandela those cheer
words,
showing him with a vacant
look on his face.
It's been more than three
weeks since Mandela was
released after a 10-day stay
in the hospital, the third
time in five months that
he was hospitalized for a
recurring lung infection.
"We saw him, he's look-
ing very good, he's in good
shape," Zuma told the
South African Broadcast-
ing Corp. on the doorstep
of Mandela's Johannesburq
home. "We had some
conversation with him,
shook hands, he smiled, as
you can see him, that he's
really up and about and
stabilized. We're really very
happy. We think that he's
fine."
But the SABC video
shows Mandela in an arm-
chair, his head propped
up by a pillow, his legs on
a footrest and covered by
a blanket, looking grey-
skinned and unsmiling
with his cheeks showing
what appear to be marks
from a recently removed
oxygen mask.
Zuma jokes and laughs
with two officials of the
governing African Nationa
Congress, some Mandela
fan-ily members and the
former president's medical
team while Mandela stares
straight ahead, unrespon-
sive. Zuma tries to hold
Mandela's hand but, given
his lack of response, ends
up covering it with his own

Syrian prime minister
escapes bombing
DAMASCUS, Syria-
Syria's prime minister
narrowly escaped an
assassination attempt in
the heart of the heavily
defended capital Monday,
state media said, laying,
bare the vulnerability of
President Bashar Assad's
1 regime.
The bombing; which
killed several other people,
d highlights an accelerat-
s ing campaign targeting
government officials, from
mid-level civil servants to
the highest echelons of
the Syrian regime.
1. State television said
Prime Minister Wael
al-Halqi was not hurt
in the bombing, which
struck his convoy as it
drove through the posh
i- Mazzeh neighborhood
home to embassies,
government officials and
business elites with close
ties to the regime. Foot-
age of the scene broadcast
on state TV showed the
I charred hulks of cars and
the burnt-out shell of a
e bus in a street littered with
rubble.
The attack on al-Halqi


punctuated a series of
attacks on government
officials in recent weeks.
On April 18, gunmen shot
dead the head of public
relations at the Ministry
of Social Affairs while he
dined at a restaurant. A
day later, a Syrian army
colonel was killed in
Damascus, and five days
after that a bomb killed an
official from the Electricity
Ministry.

Report: 260,000

report to be published
this week that more than.
doubles previous death
toll estimates, officials told
The Associated Press.
The aid commu-
nity believes that tens of
thousands of people died
needlessly because the
international community
was slow to respond to
early signs of approaching
hunger in East Africa in
late 2010 and early 2011.
The toll was also ex-
acerbated by extremist

who banned food aid

The Marianna Lady Bulldogs have
never been to the regional finals of
the .state tournament, a fact that
they'll look to erase from the record
book when they travel to Madison
County to take on the Cowgirls in
tonight's regional semifinal playoff
matchup.
Marianna (17-6) is coming off of
a wildly-entertaining 11-8 home
.win over Florida High in Thursday
night's first round game, with the
Lady Bulldogs overcoming an early
4-0 deficit.
The Lady Bulldogs come in as
District 1 champs and with a ton of
momentum and confidence, their
coach Scott Wiggins said Monday.
"Everybody is extremely excited
and the girls have been upbeat," he
said. "We were thrilled we were able
to get by Florida High. The girls are
in good spirits and ready to play."
It was a huge win for Marianna af-
ter being eliminated by Florida High
in each of the past three seasons.
The Lady Bulldogs will try to clear
another hurdle against the District
2-4A champion Cowgirls by getting
to the final eight of the state tour-
nament, an achievement with sig-
nificance that Wiggins said he and
his players are well aware of.

Veteran Jason Collins comes out as gay


The Associated Press

WASHINGTON With the
simplest of sentences, NBA
veteran Jason Collins set aside
years of worry and silence to
become the first active player in
one of four major U.S. profes-
sional sports leagues to come
out as gay.
In a first-person article posted
Monday on Sports Illustrated's
website, Collins begins: "I'm
a 34-year-old NBA center. I'm
black. And I'm gay."
Collins has played for six teams
in 12 seasons, most recently as
a reserve with the Washington
Wizards after a midseason trade
from the Boston Celtics. He is
now a free agent and wants to
keep playing in the NBA.
"I didn't set out to be the first
openly gay athlete playing in a
major American team sport. But
since I am, I'm happy to start
the conversation. I wish I wasn't
the kid in the classroom raising
his hand and saying, 'I'm dif-
ferent,'" Collins writes. "If I had
my way, someone else would
have already done this. Nobody
has, which is why I'm raising my
hand."
Saying he had "endured years
of misery and gone to enormous
lengths to live a lie," Collins im-
mediately drew support for his
announcement from the White
House President Barack
Obama called him along with

former President Bill Clinton,
the NBA, current and former
teammates, a sponsor, and ath-
letes in other sports.
Los Angeles Lakers star Kobe
Bryant tweeted that he was
proud of Collins, writing: "Don't
suffocate who u r because of the
ignorance of others," followed
by the words "courage" and
"support."
"We've got to get rid of the
shame. That's the main thing.
And Jason's going to help that.
He's going to help give people
courage to come out," said Billie


Jean King, 'a member of the In-
ternational Tennis Hall of Fame
who confirmed she was gay after
being outed in the early 1980s.
"I guarantee you he's going to
feel much lighter, much freer.
The truth does set you free,
there's no question. It doesn't
mean it's easy. But it sets you
free," King said in a telephone
interview with The Associated
Press.

I
Dear Annie: My boyfriend, "Jarrod,"
has always been very anxious about so-
cial situations and has a hard time mak-
ing friends. Since graduating from high
school, he's lost touch with the few people
he considered friends and has become
very isolated. Together with the stress of
passing his college courses, he has spi-
raled into a serious depression.
Jarrod constantly laments that he has
no friends and that his family only wants
him to get a job and move out. (They re-
cently staged an intervention and referred
to him as a "failure to launch.") He thinks
no one besides me would care if anything
happened to him. He often states that he
wishes everything would just end.
I want Jarrod to see a doctor and get
help, but he says the idea of talking to
someone about his problems scares him
and stresses him out even more. He's con-
vipced no one can help him. He thinks an-
tidepressants would make him feel worse.


Bridge

Lou Holtz, a former football coach, said, "Life is 10
percent what happens to you and 90 percent how you
respond to it."
Is bidding 10 percent what your partner bids and 90
percent how you respond to it? Not really; it ought to
be an equal division of labor.
This week we are looking at responder's rebids. In
today's deal, what should North do?
As we learned yesterday, if North has a weak hand
with 6-9 points (or a poor 10), he must pass or bid two
hearts or two spades. Here, though, North has game-
invitational strength. To show that, he must rebid two
no-trump or three of a bid suit (or, although it is im-
possible here, two of a new suit, as long as that would
not be the fourth suit named in the auction, which
we will cover later in the week). With three-card heart
support, North should jump to three hearts. South
would then bid four hearts.
Next, look at the West hand. What should he lead
against four hearts?
The club queen looks mighty tempting. But what
happens then? South wins with his,ace, takes dum-
my's top spades to shake his club loser, and plays a
diamond. West can win and shift to a trump, but de-
clarer plays another diamond. South wins the next
heart lead in his hand and ruffs a diamond on the
board. He loses only three diamond tricks.
With such strong diamonds sitting over declarer's
second suit, West should lead a trump. Then, as long
as he leads another heart every time he is on play, he
gets four diamond tricks to defeat the contract.


Horoscope
TAURUS (April 20-May
20) It's OK to be your
own person, but draw the
line if your needs come at
the expense of someone
else's.
GEMINI (May 21-June
20) Don't allow yourself
to be put in a position in
which you're out of your
depth. Be honest about
your capabilities.
CANCER (June 21-July 22)
- Someone who is just as
strong-willed as you might
try to be the dominating
force in your peer group. If
you oppose this person, a
collision is likely.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)
- Poor results are highly
likely if you have difficulty
distinguishing between
those who are in your cor-
ner and those who are not,
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
- Surprisingly, you'll be
better able to handle large
ideas than small ones. Be
careful, overly grandiose
schemes could lead to
your undoing.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23)
- Unless you're extremely
careful, it could be unwise
to invest in certain situa-
tions or people that you
know little about.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov.
22) -Those with whom
you're involved won't
like it one bit if you take
them or what they do for
granted.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-
Dec. 21) -Assignments
you neglect early on will
return to haunt you. Keep
on task.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan.
19) Overly complex
arrangements are destined
to fail, so do your best to
keep all of your involve-
ments with friends as un-
complicated as possible.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb.
19) It won't do anyone
any good to compare the
achievements of an out-
sider against your family.
PISCES (Feb. 20-March
20) A surefire way to
have others come down
hardon you is to find fault
with their thinking. Don't
be the one to introduce
controversy.
ARIES (March 21-April
19) Be careful and pru-
dent in your commercial
affairs or in the handling
of financial funds, whether
yours or someone else's. If


When I suggest that a better sleep sched-
ule, healthier eating habits and more ex-
ercise could help, he says he doesn't care
enough to try.
How do I help him find the motivation
to get the help he needs? I love him and
am terrified that he's just given up on life.
-WORRIED IN THE MOUNTAINS
Dear Worried: Jarrod is depressed, but
his unwillingness to get help prevents
him from getting better and has become
a burden on you. First, please understand
that you are not.responsible for his men-
tal health, and you cannot help him with-
out his cooperation. Tell him that one
'little step could make all the difference,
and suggest he speak to a counselor at
the college. Offer to go with him. You can
notify the counseling office about Jarrod's
depression and ask them to check on him.
We also recommend The Depression and
Bipolar Support Alliance (dbsalliance.
org).

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
Inthis file photo, New York Jets quarterback Tim Tebow arrives on the first day of NFL foot-
ball offseason workouts at the Jets practice facility in Florham Park, N.J. The New York
Jets said Monday they waived Tebow.


Tebow time over in New York


The Associated Press

NEW YORK The pos-.
sibilities appeared endless
for Tim Tebow.
Here he was, perhaps
the most popular player
in the NFL, in New York as
a member of the Jets and
maybe the biggest thing
to hit Broadway since Joe
Namath himself.
There were billboards
outside the Lincoln Tunnel
in New Jersey welcoming
Tebow, and sandwiches
named after him at Man-
* hattan delis. He also had
a legion of fans who fol-
lowed him because of his
strong Christian beliefs,
and in New York, he would
be able to take advantage
of countless media and
marketing opportunities.
And then, it all went ter-
ribly wrong.
Or, more like it, the
whole idea was completely
flawed from the start. For
Tebow. And for the Jets.
Tebow was waived Mon-
day morning, the end of an

in their hands to go play
the kind of ball they're
capable of playing. If we
show up and play to our.
abilities, I think we'll be
alright."
To create this oppor-
tunity, Marianna had to
overcome a good bit of
early adversity against
the Lady Seminoles, giv-
ing up three runs in the
first inning and a fourth
in the second before ral-
lying to score 11 consec-
utive runs.
Wiggins said the come-
back win was another
example of how mentally
tough and battle-tested
his team is..
"It definitely shows
their determination and
shows that we've been in
those situations before
this year already playing
against better teams,"
he said. "It's one reason
we play the schedule we



Pirates
From Page 1B
Joe is really good and
they've got more tradi-
tion than Liberty County.
They've been there and
had more success."
Port St. Joe has had two
trips to the state semifi-
nals recently, making it
down state in 2009 as well
as 2012; while Sneads ad-
vanced to the state semis
in 2011.
The two teams faced
off in the preseason, with
Sneads winning 16-6,
though the Lady Sharks
weren't at full strength
and Johnson said he didn't
think that game had any
bearing on this one.
T"'He Lady Pirates coach
got to see PSJ in its March.
16 tournament against
Bay High and said he
came away impressed.
"They hit the ball well
then and they'll prob-
ably hit it well against us,"
Johnson said. "We're not
going to keep them from
hitting the ball, so we
can't kick it around if we
want a chance to win. It
will be hard to keep them


embarrassinglyunsuccess-
ful one-season experiment
in New York that produced
more hype and headlines
than production on the
field.
And it all ended quietly,
with a- three-paragraph'
news release.
"Unfortunately," coach
Rex Ryan said in a state-
ment, "things did not work
out the way we all had
hoped."
It also left Tebow's foot-
ball future very much in
doubt.
Ayear after he threw aTD
pass to win a playoff game
in overtime for Denver, the
Heisman Trophy winner
with two college national
titles at Florida and a na-
tionwide following may
have suited up for the last
time.
No NFL team has made a
pitch to get him. The only
nibble so far came from
the Montreal Alouettes.
They hold his rights in the
Canadian Football League
and said he come compete


play and play up like we
do, and that's to put them
in those situations in the
regular season so that
when the postseason gets
here, our girls have been
there and hopefully don't
panic. They realized that
(after falling down), there
was still a good bit of ball
left to play and we had to
fight back and never give
up."
Junior pitcher Taylor
Hussey started in the
circle for MHS in Thurs-
day's game, rebounding
from a tough start to put
in a solid performance in
a winning effort.
She'll be tasked with
leading the Lady Bull--
dogs to another win in
the semis, as she gets the
start against a Madison
County team that Wig-
gins said was very com-
parable to Florida High.
"I think they're very
similar. They both beat
each other during the
year;, maybe Madison's
pitching is a little better,


from scoring a few runs,
so we've got to score some
runs ourselves."
Johnson said he be-
lieved his team would
need at least five runs to
win the game, specifi-
cally mentioning his top
five hitters in the lineup
- Brooke Williams, Alay-
nah Weiss, Shelbi Byler,
Cambridge Chason, and
Brandy Strickland need-
ing to step up and have
big nights to lead the SHS
offense. "
"I think it will come
down to how our big girls
hit," he said. "They hit
there for a reason. If they
have a big night, I really


for a job as a backup.
This is the same guy
who led the Broncos to the
postseason in 2011, but
became expendable when
Denver signed 'Peyton
Manning as a free agent.
The popular backup quar-
terback was acquired by
the Jets in March 2012 for
a fourth-round draft pick
and $1.5 million in sal-
ary. He was introduced at
the Jets' facility to plenty
of fanfare at a lavish news
'conference, with Tebow re-
peatedly saying he was "ex-
cited" to be in NewYork.
It turned out to be one
of the few high points in
Tebow's stay with the Jets.
Along with his shirtless
jog from the'practice field
in the rain during training
camp, of course.
The Jets, never figured
out a'way to use Tebow
effectively, and he never
forced the issue by being
a good enougli player in
practice to make Ryan and
his coaches put him on the
field more in games.


but it's nothing overpow-
ering," he said. "It's not
like some of what we've
faced against some of
these bigger teams."
If the Lady Bulldogs can
come away with another
positive result, they'll get
a chance to play their way
into the state semifinals
with a victory over the
winner of the regional
semifinal game between
Yulee and Episcopal;
Getting into that posi-
tion would be a win in
itself for the Marianna
program, Wiggins said.
"It w6uld be humon-
gous, without a doubt,"
he said. "It would be a.
great boost for the soft-
ball here at the high
school where people can
start seeing that if you
work hard and are dedi-
cated to a cause, good
things will happen. If you
put yourself in the right
situations, positives will
come out of it."
The game will start at 7
p.m.


like my chances. Those
are the girls who can hit
doubles, triples, and home
runs. I think they're big-
time hitters, and if they
have good games, I'll take
my chances against any-
one. We need everybody
to have a good game, but I
think the difference could
be those at the top of the
lineup."
' Williams will be tasked
with trying to keep the
Port St. Joe bats quiet, as
the sophomore pitcher
will look to continue
her outstanding season
against one of the most
talented lineups she has
faced this year.


Collins
From Page 1B
statement from President
Ernie Grunfeld: "We are
extremely proud of Jason
and support his decision
to live his life proudly and
openly. He has been a
leader on and off the court
and an outstanding team-
mate throughout his NBA
career. Those qualities will
continue to serve him both
as a player and as a positive
role model for others of all
sexual orientation."
Collins' coach with the
Celtics, Doc Rivers, drew
a comparison between
Monday's announcement
and Jackie Robinson's role
when he joined the Brook-
lyn Dodgers in 1947, break-
ing the color barrier in Ma-
jor League Baseball.
"I am extremely happy
and proud of Jason Collins.
He's a pro's pro. He is the
consummate professional
and he is one of my favorite
'team' players I have ever
coached," Rivers said. "If
you have learned anything
from Jackie Robinson, it is
that teammates are always
the first to accept. It will be
society who has to learn
tolerance."
Collins says .he quietly
made a statement for gay
rights even while keeping
his sexual orientation a se-
cret. He wore No. 98 with
the Celtics and Wizards
1998 was year that Mat-
thew Shepard, a gay col-
lege student in Wyoming,
was killed, and the Trevor
Project, a suicide preven-
tion organization, was
founded.
According to the General
Social Survey, the public-
has grown increasingly
accepting of gay relation-
ships since the late 1980s.
That survey found in 1987
that 76 percent of Ameri-
cans thought sexual rela-
tions between adults of
the same sex was morally
wrong. That fell to 43 per-
cent by 2012.
"I'm glad I'm coming out
in 2013 rather than 2003.
The climate has shifted;
public opinion has shifted,"
Collins writes. "And yet we
still have so much farther
to go. Everyone is terrified
of the unknown, but most
of us don't want to return
to a time when' minorities'
were openly discriminated
against."
While some gay athletes
have talked in the past
about concerns that com-
ing out would hurt their
earning potential, 12-time
Grand Slam singles cham-
pion King said she thinks
Collins' openness could
have the opposite effect.
"I have a feeling he's got
a whole new career," King
said. "I have. a feeling he's
going to make more in en-
dorsements than he's ever
made in his life."
Sports equipment maker
Nike released a statement
Monday saying: "We ad-
mire Jason's courage and
are proud that he is a Nike
athlete. Nike believes in a


But Johnson said that the
talented right-hander has
earned his trust and belief
with her consistency.
"Since Brooke has been
pitching for us, I don't
think I've had a bad out-
ing out of her," he said.
"I expect her to be steady
and solid. We just have to
back her up. We need to
limit them to three outs
per inning and not give up
any extra outs. But Brooke
is very competitive and
I think her pitching will
keep us in the game."

level playing field where an
athlete's sexual orientation
is not a consideration."
On Monday evening,
hours after his story ap-
peared on the web, Collins
wrote on Twitter: "All the
support I have received to-
day is truly inspirational. I
knew that I was choosing
the road less traveled but
I'm not walking it alone."
Momentum has been
building toward this sort
of announcement from a
pro athlete in a top league
in the United States. NFL
players Brendan Ayan-
badejo and Chris Kluwe
were outspoken in. sup-
port .of state gay-marriage
amendments during last
year's elections. Obama
spoke about his support
for gay marriage during his
re-election campaign.


The topic made waves
during Super Bowl week
when one player, San
Francisco 49ers corner-
back Chris Culliver, said
he wouldn't welcome a gay
member of his team. At the
time, Ayanbadejo estimat-
ed that at least'half of the
NFL's players would agree
with what Culliver said, at
least privately.
On Monday, NFL Com-
missioner Roger Goodell
sent a memo to teams
reiterating the league's
anti-discrimination policy
aboutsexuality. It includes
a section -on questions
teams cannot ask pro-.
spective draft picks and
free agents. After the NFL
combine in February, three
players said officials posed
questions about sexual
orientation.
