Missing Pa. woman,
thought dead,
surfaces in Fla. 6A

Vol.90 No.98


Country music le nd touched local lives


BY DEBORAH BUCKHALTER
dbuckhalter@jcfloridan.com

Country music legend George
Jones was laid to rest today, his
death last Thursday leaving count-
less fans in mourning for the loss
of a master songwriter and singer.
But the world didn't stop loving
him today. His music will live on in
the minds and memories of all the
people it touched.
And beyond the music, Jones
touched the lives of at least two
local residents in a personal way.
Back when Jackson County Flori-
dan Circulation Director Dena
Oberski was a teenager bagging


groceries in a store near her child-
hood home in Woodville, Texas,
where Jones also had
grown up, Jones and
Si I his wife Nancy went
shopping there once.
They loaded five bug-
gies. Oberski bagged
their purchases and,
Wright in a pouring rain,
helped take them to
.the Jones vehicle.
When he was ready to leave, Jones
peeled off a $5 tip for each of the
three young people who had helped.
This was back in the day when they
were used to receiving quarter tips,
so this was a windfall.


Now a mother with children older
than she was when she encountered
Jones that day, Oberski still remem-
bers his generosity. Last Friday, the
morning after Oberski learned that
Jones had died, she played his mu-
sic all day at work, sharing it with
co-workers in tribute. Oberski also
-went on the Floridan's Facebook
page to acknowledge his death and
soon after, other fans flooded the
page with their own thoughts on
the loss, naming off their favorite
songs, and talking about how much
he would be missed.

Recent Take Your


Children to Work


Day is a success


Special to the Floridan

Take Your Children to
Work Day was observed
by the Jackson County
School District on Friday,
April 26.
FCAT testing and make-
ups were still going on
across the county; there-
fore the school district
observed this event a day
later than others across
the state.
All schools participated
in this event. Principals
reported that they had
a great day. No formal
activities were planned
for students, although
Marianna High School's
principal, Sarieta Russ
stated that students were
planning to meet in Susie
Barber's Family and Con-


summer Science classroom
during sixth period to
bake cookies.
Students who partici-
pated in the past really
enjoyed this activity.
"We have students sta-
tioned all over campus,
classrooms, P.E., cafete-
ria, custodian and guid-
ance ... what fun we've
had!" said Jessica Cra-
ven, assistant principal
at Golson Elementary
School.
This activity allows stu-
dents to get a first-hand
view of their parents' job
responsibilities. Students
leave the work stations
with a sense of whether
they like their parents'
chosen field or whether
they will pursue other
occupations.

Money raised through
the silent auction will help
the school's art depart-
ment purchase supplies
for its budding artists.
Bidding is open through
Friday afternoon.
Art instructor Dr. Jerri
Benton, who was manning
the donations box and bid
sheetsWednesday, said that
in order to provide her stu-
dents the tools and supplies
they need to explore vari-
ous creative techniques, the
annual event is vital.
Public funding alone
would only afford a fraction
of the paints, brushes, can-
vas, drawing pads, mod-
eling clay and more that
Benton uses to teach her
idds about art. That's one
of the reasons she stayed
up into the wee hours of
the morning getting the
exhibit ready for viewing.
She wants the best for her
crop of budding artists.
"I consider myself really
lucky to be doing what I'm
doing," she said between
fielding questions from
students, faculty and par-
ents coming in to check
out the artwork.
To see the exhibit, sign
in at the MHS front office
then head down the hall
to the library, any time
between 8 a.m. and 3:30
p.m. Thursday and Friday
of this week. The school

Jones
From Page 1A

remembers Jones as a generous
man as well, and has the evidence
to prove it. He became a member
of the George Jones fan club many
years ago, and as a club member
was allowed to meet Jones back-
stage at concerts. Wright went
to so many that the Jones family
started recognizing him, calling
him by name when he turned up
for a show and a backstage visit.
He became a frequent visitor to
the Jones dressing room, as well.
After Wright became Mayor of
Malone, Jones turned to him for
a little help during the adminis-
tration of former Gov. Jeb Bush.
Jones had already met the se-
nior George Bush and George W.
Bush, and wanted to shake hands
with Jeb. Jones asked Wright to
see what he could do to make
that happen. Wright also knew.
that Jones loved college football,
and decided he'd see if he could
get the singer in for a look at the
FSU stadium while they were in
Tallahassee: Bush and then-FSU
Coach Bobby Bowden immedi-
ately took Wright's call when he
told their office personnel who
he was and what he wanted. Both
wantedWright to set up a meeting
with Jones as soon as possible.
After Bush and Jones had their
meeting, Bush told Jones that
some of his staff wanted to say
hello, too, and wondered if that
would be all right. Jones said
he'd be more than happy to meet
them. When they opened the
door leading into the outer of-
fice, staff members were lined up
all around the room. Jones shook
each person's hand, signed auto-
graphs, and thanked them for be-
ing there to greet him. The same
thing happened when he got over
to the Bowden camp. When he
and Bowden opened the door to
leave his office, Defensive Coor-
dinator Mickey Andrews was at
the head of a long line of coach-
ing staffers eager to meet Jones.
Wright said Jones took the same
time and care with those fans, as
well.
And at dinner the night before,
Jones had patiently answered
all kinds of questions from the
group Wright had assembled for
that special meal at the old Silver
Slipper restaurant. Strangers who

his attention to various hot issues
in Washington, and spoke of one
successful bill he was proud to
have supported, the Restore Act
that sent BP oil spill recovery funds
directly to the counties most affect-
ed in north Florida and four other
Gulf states. Rather than the money
being filtered first through the leg-
islature, where he feared the fund
could have been "siphoned off"
to areas less affected, Southerland
said the money can now go to its
purpose of restoration and recov-
ery where the spill dried up tour-
ism, closed fisheries and otherwise
hurt communities.
Southerland said he was happy
to be assigned in his first term to
committees is agriculture, natural
resource, transportation and infra-
structure, saying those were good
fits for the concerns of his district.
"We have been very busy mak-
ing sure our rural counties get the
support they need from the federal
government and making sure we
create an environment that your
economy can thrive in. Sometimes
we do a better job than others at
doing that, and sometimes the fed-
eral government fails miserably at
that, but it very, very important to
me," he said.
On the Natural Resources com-
mittee, Southerland said he is
sometimes, frustrated by policies
that hamper the ability of people
to take fair advantage of national
forest lands. Often, he said, the
Department of Interior's oversight
of those lands runs counter to
common sense.
"When you see, down in the
Apalachicola National Forest, more
trees rotting than we are harvest-
ing, that is sinful. A national forest
was designed by Congress to be a
working national forest, not a na-
tional park. We have national parks;
we don't harvest any timber in na-
tional parks. But a national forest
is designed to be a place ... where
communities that live around those

Jones later sent Wright a let- '

ning and the next day's adven-
tures. Through the years, Jones

auctioned off in community

efit to those communities. I believe
the nation forest service in many
ways has failed in that area." South-
erland blamed poor management
practices for some of the large wild-
fires the nation has seen in recent
years, indicating those might have
been avoided with appropriate
management practices in place to
clear the forest floor from the "fuel"
that can make a forest "a tinderbox"
in the event of a lightning strike
that sparks a fire. He said, however,
that the southeastern United States
does a better job that other regions
in managing those lands.
Southerland said he also is upset
by what he feels is an over-reach-
ing fisheries regulator who wants
to "turn the Gulf of Mexico into an
aquarium," and that some regula-
tions are not based on good data
and "absolutely strip us of our
God-given right to fish." He said he
finds it inappropriate, for instance,
that, in counting fish populations
as a regulatory barometer, fisher-
ies officials refuse to count those
congregated around reefs, where
the fish naturally seek shelter and
could be counted to accurately re-
flect species populations.
The National Marine Fisher-
ies commission he said, last year
shortened the fisheries season
and set bag limits so low that the
economies of the communities
dependent on. the fisheries are be-
ing devastated and that he is de-
termined to see a change in that
circumstance.
Southerland also hinted at his
support of the Keystone Pipeline
initiative as a job creator and a
way of reducing the cost of energy.


Asked about the continuing
quest to find out more about those
responsible for the Boston Mara-
thon bombing, Southerland had
this to say. "We know the individual
(suspect) who was killed spent six
months in Russia; Russia told us
that he was returning and that we
needed to keep our eyes on him,
they communicated that to the
CIA. That did happen, so some-
where, somebody dropped the ball
... I think Homeland Security, the
CIA and the FBI, we have to have
a meeting of the minds ... I'm not
sure yet who bears all that respon-
sibility, but we're looking and we're
working to find that out."
Southerland made clear his posi-
tion on the idea of welfare reform.
"If you are of working age, and you
are physically, mentally, psycho-
logically able to work, it is a sin
for us to pay you not to work," he
comrhented.
On debt and the sequestration
or debt-limit bill, Southerland said
he didn't,vote for sequestration be-
cause doing so would have meant
he'd have to break his campaign
promise not to do anything to hurt
Medicare. Southerland said seques-
tration cut that program by $115
billion. Instead, he said, he voted
twice to replace sequestration with
more flexibility within departments
which would allbw their managers
to, rather than making a 2 percent
across-the-board cut in spending,
decide what needed cuts and what
needed to be left at full funding.
Southerland said he'll be back to
Jackson County to update the com-
munity further about his take on
what's happening in Washington.


Governor

signs ethics,

campaign

finance bills
The Associated Press

TALLAHASSEE Gov.
Rick Scott signed a wide-
ranging ethics bill and a
separate measure that will
raise campaign contribu-
tion limits, waiting until the
final hours Wednesday be-
fore taking action.
Earlier in the day, Scott
said he was still review-
ing the bills. He previously
questioned why campaign
contribution limits needed
to be raised. The ethics bill
(SB 2) was a priority of Sen.
President Don Gaetz and
the campaign finance bill
(HB 569) was important to
House Speaker Will Weath-
erford. The House and
Senate sent him the bills
knowing they would have
to be signed by or vetoed
before midnight Wednes-
day, two days before the
legislative session ends.
Campaign contribution
limits, now at $500 per
contributor per election
for all offices, will be raised
to $1,000 for legislative and
local races and $3,000 for
statewide races.
The bill also eliminates
committees of continuing
existence, or CCEs, which
critics say some lawmak-
ers use as slush funds for
travel, meals and entertain-
ment and that have noth-
ing to do with the commit-
tees' political purposes. But
lawmakers still will be able
to form other political com-
mittees and take unlimited
contributions. And law-
makers will now be able to
keep $20,000 in contribu-
tions for their re-election.

Heist was going through
an amicable divorce in
2002 when she was turned
down for housing assis-
tance, which led her to
despair. She was crying in
a park when two women
and. a man befriended
her, then invited her to
join them as they began
a monthlong hitchhiking
journey to south Florida,
Schofield said.
Her ex-husband, Lee
Heist, who collected on a
life insurance policy after
getting the courts to de-
clare her legally dead in
2010 and has remarried,
said at a news conference
Wednesday that he was
angry because of the effect
her disappearance had on
their son and daughter.
Lee Heist was looked at
as a suspect, but he co-
operated with investiga-
tors, took a polygraph and
eventually was cleared.
He was able to maintain
a bond with the children.
"They knew that I was
there, and I loved them
and would take care of
them," he said.
He said his ex-wife and
their children have ex-
pressed a desire to speak
with each other, but for
now they are taking things
slowly.
Her identity came to


light after she turned her-
self in to Monroe County
sheriff's deputies in Key-
Largo, Fla., on Friday and
informed them she was a
missing person. She told
them she was on proba-
tion and recently had been
arrested under a name
different from her real
name. The nature of those
charges was not clear in a
Monroe County sheriff's
office report released late
Wednesday.
Schofield said she was
expected to be released
from police custody in
Florida and was likely to
spend some time with a
brother in that state be-
fore moving in with her
mother in Texas.
"She has a birth cer-
tificate and a death cer-
tificate, so she's got a long
ways to make this right
again," Schofield said.
"She's got to take it slow
with her family, I'm sure,
and it's going to be a long
process."
Inside her Lititz home
the day she disappeared,
dinner was defrosting and
the laundry was half done.
Police located her car in
neighboring York County,
but none of her personal
belongings were missing.
When Schofield called
recently to meet with her
ex-husband and their
daughter, they assumed
he would be notifying
them that her remains
were found, the detective
said.
Lee Heist said he strug-
gled financially after his
wife disappeared, quit-
ting his job and losing
his home. She had been
a bookkeeper at a car
dealership.
"There were people in
the neighborhood who
would not allow their
children to play with my
children" because he had
been a suspect, he said.
Brenda Heist had been
homeless for the past two
years, most recently living
in a tent community run
by a social service agency.
"She said she was at
the end of her rope, she


was tired of running,"
Schofield said.
For about seven years
she lived with a man in a
camper in Key West and
worked odd jobs. Schofield
said she never had access
to a computer and never
checked to see if she was
being sought, although she
assumed she was.


Morning-after ruling
to be appealed
WASHINGTON -The
Justice Department is ap-
pealing a judge's decision
lifting all age limits on the
Plan B morning-afer birth
control pill and a cheaper
generic.
The federal government
says the judge who issued
the ruling had exceeded
his authority and that his
decision should be sus-
pended while the appeal is
underway.
U.S. District Judge
Edward Korman of New
York had given the Food
and Drug Administration
until Monday to lift all
age limits on Plan B and
cheaper generic. The judge
mandated that emergency
contraception be sold just
like aspirin.
On Tuesday, the FDA said
anyone 15 or older could
begin buying one brand,
Plan B One-Step, without
a prescription two years
younger than the current
age limit of 17.

SNEADS The Sneads Lady Pirates
moved one step closer to a second trip to
the state semifinals in the last three sea-
sons Tuesday night with a 7-4 victory over
the Port St. Joe Lady Sharks in the-1lA re-
gional semifinals.
The Lady Pirates (24-5) scored five runs
in a decisive sixth-inning rally, and then
held off a late charge by the Lady Sharks
in the top of the seventh.
Brooke Williams pitched all seven in-
nings to get the win, surrendering one
earned run on six hits, three walks and
one hit batter while striking out nine.
Makayla Ramsey took the loss for Port
St. Joe, also going the distance and giv-
ing up four earned runs on five hits, three
walks and seven hit batters while also
striking out nine.
Williams led the Lady Pirates offensively
with two hits to go with a walk and two
runs, with each of the top five hitters in
the Sneads lineup scoring or driving in at
least one run.
"The girls at the top did a great job all
night," Lady Pirates coach Kelvin John-
son said after the game. "I said we need-
ed to get five runs to win the game and
that ended up being what we had to get.
Brooke pitched real well to keep Port St.
Joe to four runs, and our girls got big hits
when we needed it."
It was Port St. Joe that grabbed the early
lead with a run in the top of the first after
Kelsey Miles reached on an infield single
and scored on an error to make it 1-0.
Sneads tied it up in the third when Wil-
liams led off with an infield single, stole
second base, and eventually scored on an
RBI groundout by Cambridge Chason.
Chason came through again in the fifth
with an RBI single to left field to score
AlaynahWeiss to make it 2-1, but the Lady
Sharks answered back with an RBI single
up the middle of the infield by Hal Leigh
Keels in the sixth to level the game.
But things started to unravel for Port
St. Joe in the bottom of the inning, with
Ramsey hitting the first two batters she
faced and Williams adding another bunt
single that allowed Brandi Walden to
come around from second base to score.
Mallory McDaniel moved to third on the

errant throwhome and scored whenWeiss
followed with an RBI groundout to second
base, with Williams racing for third on the
play and scoring when the throw got away
from the base, making it 5-2.
Shelbi Byler was then bit by a Ramsey
pitch, and Chason got to second after a
high throw after a ground ball to second
to put two more Sneads runners in scor-
ing position.
That brought up Brandy Strickland, who
clubbed a pitch deep to left field to score
both runners and put the Lady Pirates up
7-2.
Despite the five-run margin, the Lady
Sharks did make Sneads sweat a hit in the
seventh, with Haley Wood walking and
scoring on an error, and Shannon Prid-
geon tacking on another run with an RBI
double to left field.
But Williams ended the threat by strik-
ing out Christian Laine for the third out.
Byler, Chason, and Strickland all had
hits for Sneads, with Chason driving in
two runs and Strickland walking twice


and picking up two RBI of her own.
Miles led Port St. Joe with two hits, while
Pridgeon had a double, a walk, an RBI,
and a run, and Keels was 1-for-2 with an
RBI.
With the win, the Lady Pirates advanced
to Friday's regional final to take on the
Liberty County Lady Bulldogs in Bristol in
a playoff rematch from last season.
Liberty County eliminated Sneads with
a 3-0 win in last year's regional semifinals.
The Lady Bulldogs come into Friday's
game riding a 16-game winning streak
that includes a 10-0 win Tuesday over Dis-
trict 3 runner-up Wewahitchka.
Johnson said he's not the least bit sur-
prised that the two teams are meeting up
again.
"When we left the field last year, I an-
ticipated us playing them again this year,"
he said. "I would've been surprised if we
didn't play them again. They might be a tad
bit better than us, but that doesn't matter.
What matters is who plays the best Friday.
That's who is going to win the game."


Lady Bulldogs knocked out by Cowgirls


BY DUSTIN KENT
dkent@jcfloridan.com

The Marianna Lady Bulldogs had their
season ended Tuesday night in Madison
as the Madison County Cowgirls took a 6-1
victory in the 4A Regional Semifinals.
The Cowgirls scored two runs in the bot-
tom of the first inning and four more in the
fourth, with the Lady Bulldogs getting a
single run in the top of the fourth.
With the win, Madison moves on to take
on Episcopal in the regional finals Friday
night, while Marianna is eliminated with a
record of 17-7.
Taylor Hussey took the loss for the Lady
Bulldogs, going six innings and allowing
two earned runs on five hits, four walks
and four strikeouts, as five MHS errors
paved the way for four unearned Madison
County runs.
"We made some critical errors defensive-
ly," Marianna coach Scott Wiggins said.
"We just didn't play up to our capabilities.
We didn't swing the bat very well at all, and
it was just the wrong time to make some
Skey mistakes. It's very disappointing. We
had good practices leading up to it. The
girls were up and ready to go, but we just
didn't execute when the lights were on."


Marianna had only four hits as a team,
with Linsey Basford going 1-for-3 with a
double and a run, Reagan Oliver 1-for-3
with a double, and Lexie Basford 1-for-2
with a walk.
Yazmine Bellamy also had a hit, Con-
nor Ward drew a walk and Hussey had the
team's only RBI.
"We had opportunities (to score); we just
didn't do much on offense," Wiggins said.
"We made some base-running mistakes
that took us out of some innings, and then
we really hurt ourselves on the defensive
side with errors later in the game. We just
didn't play our best game. (The Cowgirls)
have got, a good team. We made mistakes
and they capitalized on them."
The Lady Bulldogs got to the regional
semifinals by taking an 11-8 win over Flori-
da High, which marked the first time Mari-
anna had knocked off the Lady Seminoles
after being eliminated by them in three
consecutive seasons.
That followed a 10-0 district title game
win over Walton that gave Marianna its
third consecutive league title.
Wiggins said he was very proud of his
team's accomplishments on the year, but
was hopeful that Tuesday's disappoint-
ing end will serve as fuel for the returning


Lady Bulldog players to go even further
next season.
"District championships are where we
want to start, but we want to build from
that and keep building on it," he said. "We
got over the hump against Florida High,
so hopefully we keep building off of that
and work to get past the second round
now."
Marianna loses its best power hitter in
Whitney Lipford, as well as key seniors
Linsey Basford and Connor Ward, but four
of the team's top seven hitters do return
- as does Hussey and the entire pitching
staff giving the Lady Bulldogs a pretty
impressive core of returning players for
2014'.
"Without a doubt we're looking forward,"
Wiggins said. "We've got a very good nucle-
us coming back with a solid group of girls
that come in and work hard and play hard
and we'll try to improve and get beyond
where we are now."
Correction: In Tuesday's Marianna-Madi-
son County preview story, it was mentioned
that the Lady Bulldogs had never been to
the regional finals of the state tournament,
but that was only in fast-pitch softball.
Marianna did make it to state finals of
slow-pitch softball in 1977 and 1986.


Optimist comes out swinging with big win over Kiwanis


BY SHELIA MADER
Floridan Correspondent


Optimist picked up its fifth
win of the season against just
* two losses Tuesday night after
prevailing 10-1 over Kiwanis in
AAA baseball action at Opti-
mist Park.
Starting on the mound for
Kiwaniis was Landon Gar-
cia, who went the distance
and took the loss, while Brady
Donaldson got the nod for
Optimist and picked up the
win, going four innings and
giving up one unearned run
on no hits and a walk with 10
strikeouts.
Zane Monk closed out the
game in the fifth inning for Op-
timist, giving up no runs on one
walk and one hit batter while
striking out three.
Optimist drew first blood in
the top of the first inning by
plating three runs.


Cole Nobles singled and
moved to second on a single
by Donaldson, with Ben Wig-
gins picking up an RBI single
with Monk sacrificing to score
Donaldson.
With two outs, Grant Williams
took one for the team and Wig-
gins scored on a passed ball
before a groundout ended the
inning.
Optimist added three more in
the top of the second.
With one out, Garrison Beach
reached first safely on a mis-

played ball, with Deondre Sims
following with a walk and Tyler
Huey sacrificing both runners
into scoring position for No-
bles' two-RBI double.
Donaldson singled home No-
bles but was out trying for home
on a stolen base attempt.
Donaldson retired the side in
order in the bottom of the sec-
ond inning.
With one out in the top of the
third, Monk doubled and made
it around the bases when the
ball was overthrown to make it


a 7-0 ballgame.
Kiwanis' sole run came in the
bottom of the fourth inning
when Trey Stevens reached
on a one-out error and moved
around the bases to score on a
passed ball.
Deondre Sims led off the top
of the fifth by drawing a walk
before stealing second and
third and scoring after a ball
got to the backdrop.
Nobles walked and scored on
an inside the park home run by
Donaldson.
In the bottom of the fifth,
Monk struck out the first bat-
ter before issuing a walk to Trey
Stevens, who stole second and
third.
With two outs, Colt Fenton
took one for the team, but
Monk retired the next batter on
strikes.
Action continues at Optimist
Park today with a 5 p.m. start
time. L

Be careful not to misman-
age affairs; you don't want
to lose a friend.


innie's IMIailbox


Dear Annie: I'm in my 40s and have
been married for 20 years. We have two
children. Our marriage has been OK but
not totally fulfilling. For the past five
years, I have been in contact with my
ex-fiancee.
I have thought about getting divorced
a number of times but have never gone
through with it. I love my wife, but not
the same way I love my ex. Whenever I
speak with my ex, I am my happy old self.
She is the most caring, sweet, romantic
person I've ever met, and I know, without
a doubt, that our lives would be happy if
we were together. Not a day goes by that I
don't think about her. We treat each other
the way people should be treated.
My children do not have the best
relationship with their mother, so I don't
think a divorce would be all that trauma-
tizing for them. I just don't want to hurt
her. I have spoken to her about the things
I'd like changed, but she only complies
for a short while, and then things go back


Bridge
This week we are studying responder's re-
bids. Look at the auction and South'shand. Can
North have four hearts for his sequence? What
should South rebid?
North cannot have four hearts; if he did, he
would have rebid two hearts (the major), not
two diamonds (the minor). So, as there can- W
not be a 4-4 heart fit, South should rebid two
no-trump. This is game-invitational, indicat- 4
ing some 10-12 points and at least one stopper V
in the unbid suit, hearts. (If you use two-over-
one game-forcing, you would respond one no-
trump forcing, then rebid two no-trump over
two diamonds.) After North raises to three no-
trump, West leads the spade king. How should
South plan the play?
What a dirty trick by West, leading a spade in-
stead of a heart! South has six top tricks: One
spade, four hearts and one diamond. If the dia-
mond finesse is working, there will be no prob-
lems. If it loses, declarer will need a club trick.
South should duck the first trick and take the
second spade to find out the break. Then he
should overtake one of dummy's heart honors
as cheaply as possible and run the diamond
jack. East wins with his king and shifts to a low
club. What should declarer do?
If West has the club ace, the contract has no
chance. So South should put up his king, hop-
ing for the best. If it wins, he can claim.


to the way they were.
Is this just a midlife crisis? Should I
settle and stick with my current life or
take a chance on a new one?
-WANTING NO REGRETS

Dear Wanting: So why didn't you marry
your ex-fiancee? It's not uncommon to
fantasize about a wonderful life with
someone you don't actually live with.
The mundane responsibilities, raising
children, doing housework, paying bills
- all of those things are unromantic and
unexciting. It takes work to make a good
marriage. Don't simply tell your wife
what you want her to change. Maybe
she'd like you to change, too.
We commend you for not wanting to
hurt her. So please give your marriage a
chance before you bail. Ask your wife to
come with you for marriage counseling
to see whether you can work through
some of those things that are making you
unhappy.

With the current
emotional climate,
is this any time for

purely "j,,udental" or caused
by "unavoidable contact"

Will Nelson Piquet

tire He gambled on tra'.J p,,iiitrin and oijt Ilirlhing hitllh in
the 1,5-mile scramble to the ,:he,':ered li'g
But this had to make it hurt just a bit worse: He lost to
teammate Kevin Harvick, who restarted seventh on fresh
tires and had a comfortable lead by the time the field got to
the white flag. To Burton's credit, he shrugged it off.
"Obviously, new tires area lot better," he said, "But, it
was worth a shot."
Harvick beating Burton at Richmond was not lost on car
owner Richard Childress, who gave Burton a verbal pat on
the back during the winner's interview. "I think everyone,
even (Harvick's) team, was probably pulling for Burton."
