to a home on Damascus Church a field across the
Road on Monday because some- street and ran a
one called to report that James Ammons warrant check. It


revealed that he was wanted by
Bay County authorities for a pro-
bation violation, according to a
press release from the Jackson
County Sheriff's Office. Based
on that information, deputies
attempted, to handcuff Am-
mons, but' he pulled away and
ran. Despite an extensive search,
officers were unable to find him
that day.


On Tuesday, though, officers re-
sponded to a prowler call at 5032
Piano Rd., the location which is
listed in jail records as Ammons'
address. The caller identified
Ammons as the prowler. Offi-
cers from the Graceville Police
Department, canine teams from
Apalachee and Jackson Correc-
tional Institutions, and a heli-
coptei team from the Jackson


County Sheriff's Office joined
ground officers from JCSO in a
search for Ammons near the ad-
dress. He was found and taken
into custody without further
incident.
Ammons, 38, is charged with
violation of state probation (a
Bay County charge), and locally
with resisting arrest without
violence.

The clerk who was hit hard with a gun
during an armed robbery at a Marianna-
area store Tuesday night was treated at Jack-
son Hospital for the wound and released the
same evening, according to Jackson County
Sheriff Lou Roberts. The blow was so severe
that it caused her to fall to the floor.
Authorities are searching for two suspects
in the case. According to a release from the
sheriff's office, the clerk at Green's Super-
market called 911 around 9:38 p.m. Tuesday
to report the incident. She had locked the
doors that evening and was doing paper-
work when a gunshot shattered the glass
doors. One man stepped inside and was
immediately followed in by a second. Both
were wearing bandanas over their faces,
hoodies, dark clothing and gloves. One of
them pointed a gun in the clerk's direction
and soon after one struck the clerk with the
weapon. She fell to the floor. The thliiv-

MARIANNA City Commis-

a land buy in the downtown"
area, with aims at easing parking
troubles for customers of nearby
businesses.
At Tuesday's meeting, by a 4-

go-ahead to pursue the acqui-
sition of a small parcel of land
located between McPherson
and Caledonia streets, north
of Franklin Street and south of

Jackson Street.
The partially wooded area has
served as makeshift overflow
parking during peak hours for
nearby businesses like the Bis-
tro Palms. Owner Misty Richards
was in attendance for the meet-
ing and took a moment to ad-
dress commissioners and thank
several city officials for their
efforts to try and resolve the
ongoing parking issue.
City Manager Jim Dean and
City Attorney Frank Bondurant
brought the item before the
board and explained a possible
problem that may present itself
in the future.

Several siblings of the Parris
family, owners of the property,
are on board with the sale, but
one distant heir, who may have
a one-fifth interest in the land,
cannot be located. Dean, who
estimated the cost of the land
at $19,000- $20,000, said he had
personally tried to call the heir
several times, but had not
received a response.
"We don't even know if that
person is alive," Bondurant said.
Moving forward with a defect
in the chain of, title could be
problematic if the heir steps for-
ward and does not want to sell.
Bondurant said that's a worst-

case scenario which could be
tTciilied.
"We could condemn it and take
it," hlie told the commissioners.
The risk of going ahead with
the purchase was small com-
pared to the reward of the ad-
ditional parking to come for
most commissioners.
One dissenting vote came
from Travis Ephriam who, by
,phone Wednesday, said that
although he approved of the
overall plan for the property, the
absence of a clear title presented
an uncertainty that was cause

Meet the challenge


Special to the Floridan

Recently, John and Mis-
sy Bryan, owners of John's
Automotive freely pre-
sented a $1000 donation
to Shareta Wright-Green
of the Wright Foundation
and offered a challenge
to other businesses to
join them in aiding the
local charity.
"John usually shies away
from the spotlight." his
wife remarked, but they
both felt the story should
to be shared. Last month,
the couple and one of
their wrecker drivers, Rob-
ert Fordan, intervened to
assist an elderly woman
after a vehicle collision
on Interstate 10 between
Cottondale and Mari-
anna left her stranded
with a vehicle in complete
disrepair and very little
money. Initially, they felt
assistance with a bus tick-
et to the elderly woman's
hometown of Wildwood
while she awaited pay-
ment from her insurance
companywas the logical
resolution. Unfortunately,
her situation proved to
be much more compli-
cated when it. became
apparent she hhd some
severe mental health con=
cerns and until the colli-
sion, had recently begun
living in her car. Fordan
and the Bryans assisted
the lady in receiving initial
medical treatment and
provided for some imme-
diate personal needs; but,
after two weeks of being
unable to contact fam-
ily members they reached
out to the Community
Resource Center to seek
'a longer-term solution.
They witnessed quick in-
tervention and intensive
case-managemnent servic-
es by the Foundation staff
to safely gain the weary
traveler the treatment
and housing stability she
required.
The same day Bryan en-
tered the Center, sitting in

ple, Mr. and Mrs. L ages
78 and 75, who, only days
earlier, were found living
in their vehicle after los-
ing their housing the pre-
vious week. Wrighl-Green
later shared thal Mr. and
Mrs. L were safe and had
been placed in tempo-
raryhousing donated by
a faith-partner until Mr.
L's pension and other
housing barriers were
resolved.
A grandmother, her
daughter and 5-year-old


granddaughter arrived at
the Center after being re-
ferred by the local school.
They had lost their hous-
ing and all belongings to
fire and sought assis-
tance navigating back to
normalcy. Wright-Green
commented, "Sometimes
we are stretched beyond
our comfort levels when
responding to some of the
families we encounter;
but God is always faithful
to give us the resources,
the energy and the wis-
dom needed to do the
work assigned to us. We
cannot be everything to
everybody, so that means
sometimes we have to say
no. For the individuals
and families we are able
to respond to, we hope to
have a significant impact
in their lives."
After witnessing this
well coordinated Coinm-
munity Benevolence Pro-
gram at work to help the
most vulnerable in our

not hesitate when asked
to support the efforts of

Woman, 84, claims $590M Powerballjackpot


The Associated Press

TALIAHASSEE An 84-
year-old Florida woman
who bought her Powerball
ticket after another cus-
tomer let her get ahead in
line came forwardWednes-
day to claim the $590 mil-
lion jackpot, becoming the
largest sole lottery winner
in'U.S. history
Gloria C. Mackenzie,
of Zephyrhills, where the
winning ticket was sold
May 18, took a single lump
sum payment of just over
$370 million, Florida Lot-
tery officials said. After
paying 25 percent for fed-
eral income taxes, Mack-
enzie is taking home
about $270 million, offi-
cials said.
She did not speak to a
crowd of reporters outside
lottery headquarters, leav-
ing quickly in a silver Ford
Focus with her son, Scott
Mackenzie, and family
friends. She was accom-
panied by two unidenti-
fled attorneys, who left in
a separate car.
MacKenzie bought
the winning ticket at a
Publix supermarket in
Zephyrhills, a town of
about 13,300 people lo-
cated 30 miles northeast
of Tampa. It is best known
for bottled spring water
that bears its name and

before taxes on Wednesday, June 5 in Tallahassee, Fla.


now one of the biggest
lottery winners of all
time.
In a statement read by
lottery officials, Macken-
zie said she purchased the
ticket after another buyer
"was kind enough to let
me go ahead in line to
purchase the winning
ticket." Mackenzie played
a quick-pick ticket, in
which the numbers are
generated randomly by
lottery computers. She
said she also purchased
four other tickets for the
same drawing.
"We are grateful with
this blessing of winning
the Florida Lottery Power-
ball jackpot. We appreci-
ate the interest from the


public, state of Florida and
the lottery," the statement
said. "We hope that every-
one would give us the op-
portunity to maintain our
privacy for our family's
benefit."
The winner had 60 days
from the May 18 drawing
to claim the lump sum.
Lottery spokesman David
Bishop said Mackenzie,
her lawyers and financial
adviser were very pre-
pared when they arrived,
spending about two hours
going through the neces-
sary paperwork.
"They had clearly been
preparing for this. They
took all this time to get ev-
erything in order," Bishop
said.


Minutes after the an-
nouncement, a dozen
reporters in Zephyrhills
were camped outside
Mackenzie's modest grey
duplex, which backs up
to a dirt alley and is across
from a cow pasture.
Neighbors were sur-
prised and said Macken-
zie never mentioned her
big win.
"She didn't say anything
about it. She's so quiet and
secluded. She's usually in
the house," said neigh-
bor James Hill. "I'm very
happy for her. It couldn't
have happened to a nicer
person. She was always
pleasant and smiling."
Another neighbor, Don
Cecil, joked "I hope she
gets a better place to live."
Mackenzie's neighbors
offered few details about
her life, including how
long she'd lived there
and whether she was
married. They said she
mostly kept to herself, but
they saw her take short
walks along the street and
exchanged pleasantries
with her.
Mackenzie's house,
which was situated among
mostly mobile home and
pre-fabricated houses,
had a chain link fence
with grey shutters, a tin
sheet roof and an old TV
antenna.


Jury IDs will be kept private at Zimmerman trial


The Associated Press

ORLANDO -The identities of po-
tential jurors in the trial of the for-
mer neighborhood watch volunteer
charged with killing an unarmed
teenager in central Florida will be
kept confidential, a Florida judge
ruled Wednesday.
Circuit Judge Debra Nelson also
ruled that potential jurors for
George Zimmerman's trial won't
be sequestered, as requested by
defense attorneys.
During jury selection beginning
next week, potential jurors will be
referred to only by their jury num-
bers. Attorneys need to pick six
jurors and four alternates.
"This 'is to be done in order to
protect the prospective jurors from
harassment and pressure from the
public at large," Nelson said in the
ruling.
The judge also prohibited photog-
raphers from taking photos of po-

tential jurors during jury selection.
Zimmerman is charged with sec-
ond-degree murder in the fatal
shooting of Trayvon Martin. Zim-
merman is pleading not guilty,
claiming self-defense.
Zimmerman fatally shot Martin
after seeing him walking through
the gated community where he


lived. He followed Martin, despite
being told by a dispatcher not to
do so. Zimmerman says Martin
attacked him.
Separately, Zimmerman's defense
attorney asked Wednesday that
prosecutors be prohibited from us-
ing certain words that he described
as "disparaging" to Zimmerman.
Those words include "profiled,"
"vigilante," "self-appointed neigh-
borhood watch captain," and "wan-
nabe cop." Defense attorney Mark
O'Mara also asked the judge to pro-
hibit prosecutors from using the
phrases "He got out of the car after
the police (or dispatcher) told him
not to" and "He confronted Trayvon
Martin."
O'Mara said the word "profiling" is
racially charged and that the other
words are misstatements that could
prejudice a jury.
Martin was black. Zimmerman's
father is white, and his mother is
Hispanic.

FDLE alleges that Finch
released the suspect and
altered or destroyed docu-
ments associated with
the arrest. The arresting
deputy reported that Par-
rish had a loaded .25 cali-
ber semiautomatic pistol
in his pocket when he
was pulled over for a traf-
fic stop on March 8. The
officer also noted that a
holstered revolver was also
lying on the front seat of
the vehicle.
The officer took Parrish
to jail and documented
the arrest. A booking offi-
cer completed the process,
which included entering
Parrish's name in both a
computerized and a hand-
written log sheet.
The booking officer re-
ported that Sheriff Finch
came to the jail after the
arresting officer left, en-
tering with Bob Parrish,
the brother of the arrested
man. The booking officer
said that Finch and Bob

TSA drops plan to allow




small knives on planes


The Associated Press

WASHINGTON The
Transportation Security
Administration is aban-
doning a plan to allow
passengers to carry small
knives, souvenir bats, golf
clubs and other sports
equipment onto planes in
the face of fierce congres-
sional and industry op-
position, the head of the
agency said Wednesday.
By scuttling the plan to
drop the knives and sports
equipment from TSA's list
of prohibited items, the
agency can focus its at-
tention on other priori-
ties, including expanding
its Pre-Check program
to identify ahead of time
travelers who don't pose a
security risk, TSA Admin-
istrator John Pistole told
The Associated Press.
Pistole had unveiled
the proposal to loosen
the rules for carry-ons in
March, saying the knives
and other items can't en-
able terrorists to cause a
plane to crash. He said
intercepting them takes
time that would be better
used searching for explo-
sives and other more seri-
ous threats. TSA screeners
confiscate over 2,000 of
the small folding knives a
day from passengers.
Skeptical lawmakers,
airlines, labor unions and
some law enforcement
groups complained that
the knives and other items
in the hands of the wrong
passengers could be used
to injure or even kill pas-
sengers and crew.
Last month 145 House
members signed a letter to


THEM ASSOCIATED PRESS IILL
In this 2010 photo, TSA officer Robert Howard signals an airline passenger forward at a
security check-point at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport in SeaTac, Wash.


Pistole asking him to keep
in place the current policy
prohibiting passengers
from including the knives
and other items in their
carry-on bags. Flight at-
tendant unions organized
protests in Washington
and at airports across the
country. And Airlines for
America, which repre-
sents major U.S. airlines,
as well as top executives
from some of the nation's
largest airlines, came out
against the plan.
"After getting the input
from 'all these different
constituents, I realized
there was not across-the-
board support that would
serve us well in moving
forward," Pistole said. By
dispensing with the con-
troversial proposal, he said
the agency can focus on
programs to identify the
greatest security threats.
"It is a recognition that,
yes, these items could be
used as weapons, but I


want our folks to focus on
those things that, again,
are the most concern
given the current intelli-
gence," he said.
The TSA announced the
change on the very day
the House debated the
agency's budget, poised to
vote on reversing the pol-
icy. And in fact, just a few
hours later, the House gave
unanimous voice vote ap-
proval to an amendment
to the Homeland Security
Department's budget bill
to reverse the proposed
regulations on knives and
other potentially danger-
ous objects.
Some opponents
changed their position in
recent weeks as Pistole
explained his reasoning
to Congress and in meet-
ings with interest groups. -
Among those who initially
criticized the TSA plan was
Debra Burlingame, whose
brother Charles was the
pilot of the plane that hit


the Pentagon in the Sept.
11, 2001, terrorist attacks.
"They laid out a case for
this that I thought made
a lot of sense, and I really
changed my mind," she
said in an interview.
"The TSA is so over-
whelmed- with the
screening process and
what they are trying to
keep off airplanes, that I
think to lessen that dif-
ficult task or mitigate
it can be a good thing,"
Burlingame said. "There
is a safety issue. But there
is a difference between
safety onboard an aircraft
and security aboard an
aircraft."
The proposal would
have permitted folding
knives with blades that
are 2.36 inches or less in
length and are less than
1/2 inch wide. The aim
was to allow passengers
to carry pen knives, cork-
screws with small blades
and other knives.


Couple arrested for alleged threats to informant


Staff Report


A Grand Ridge couple
went from sharing a home
to sharing a different kind
of address on Tuesday.
Steven and Alice Kuster
were both taken to the
Jackson County Jail for at
least a temporary stay that
morning. Each is charged
with retaliating against an
informant who is a wit-
ness in an ongoing crimi-
nal prosecution. Court
documents related to the
case refer to an instance
in which the informant
allegedly bought meth-
amphetamine from Mr.
Kuster.
According to court infor-
mation, the two confront-


then allegedly came to the
booking officer, took the
Parrish arrest file and told
her that Parrish was to be
released and that no charg-
es were to be filed. Finch
and the Parrish brothers
left together that night,
with Finch in possession of
the file when they left, the
officer told FDLE investi-
gators. The booking officer
never saw the file again,
she told investigators.
Investigators also dis-
covered that wite-out had
been applied to two lines
of a log sheet and a jail re-
port used the night Parrish
was arrested, and that oth-
er names had been placed
on top of those lines. Par-
rish's name was not vis-
ible until the sheets were
analyzed by FDLE crime
lab inspectors. When
questioned about the use
of the concealer, the book-
ing officer said she couldn't
remember whether she
had done that, but that if
she had, it would have only
been at the direction of the
sheriff.
Witnesses interviewed by
the FDLE inspector also in-
dicated that Finch ordered
the firearms released back

that Alice told him she

he heard Steven Kuster
rmant when "yell ... that he Was going
n at a con- to kill (the informant) and
re in Grand that it was already in the


Ridge around 9 a.m. Ac-
cording to the court re-
port, Alice Kuster allegedly
got out of a tan Chevrolet
Blazer and "approached
him in a very aggressive
manner." Authorities say
the informant described
events that next unfold-
ed. He advised "that Alice

acknowledged putting
those in his hands.
Officials noted that a copy
of the arresting officer's af-
fidavit, provided by that
officer, and a computer re-
cord that he entered are es-
sentially the only existent
evidence of the Parrish ar-
rest. The officer's original
arrest report has not been
located. Those types of
files are not used in court
as they are not recognized
as usable originals by the
court system.
The FDLE report con-
cludes with a statement
by FDLE Inspector Tim
McGraw. Based upon the
information he gleaned in
the investigation, McGraw
wrote that there is "prob-
able cause to believe that
Sheriff Finch did violate
Florida Statute 828.022,
Official Misconduct, by
concealing, covering up,,
destroying, mutilating or
altering the official arrest
record or official docu-
ment of Floyd Parrish or
causing another person to
perform such an act, with
the corrupt intent to ob-
tain a benefit for another
person."


works."
The informant said that
Mr. Kuster had his hand
"concealed down be-
side the seat" during this
time and that he, the in-
formant, felt that Kuster
possibly had a weapon.
Authorities reported in
court documents that the
alleged victim went on


to indicate that "he had
a well-founded fear that
they would carry out or
attempt to carry out the
threats against his life."
The cashier of the store
told an investigator that
she did witness a con-
frontation and heard
Mrs. Kuster utter a racial
slur but was unable to
hear specific threats be-
ing made. Officials report
that they obtained sur-
veillance video support-
ing the accounts given
by the victim and that
that they allege "the ac-
tions of the defendants
... were in attempt to cre-
ate fear and/or intimidate
the witness in an ongoing

First tropical storm,
Andrea, forms
MIAMI -The first
tropical storm of the
Atlantic hurricane
season, Andrea, formed
Wednesday over the
Gulf of Mexico and
was expected to bring
wet weather to parts of
Florida's west coast over
the next few days..
SForecasters issued a
tropical storm warning
for a swath of Florida's
west coast starting at
Boca Grande, an island
to the northwest of Fort
Myers, and ending in
the Big Bend area of the
state.
Andrea had maximum
sustained winds near
40 miles per hour as of
6 p.m. and is forecast to
reach 45 mph over the
next day. It was located
about 310 miles south-
west of Tampa.

WASHINGTON De-

President Barack Obama
named outspoken diplo-

Wednesday, giving her
a larger voice in U.S.

accusations that. she
misled the nation in the
aftermath of the deadly
attack on Americans in
Benghazi, Libya.
The president, who
vigorously defended
Rice from the GOP criti-
cism, lauded his close
friendWednesday as a
"patriot who puts her

him to withhold his sup-

Once the Parris fam-
ily sells to the city, the
commission will be one
step closer to its goal
of building a parking
lot at the location. The
next step would be to
seek construction fund-

grant programs, a pro-

months.



Robbery
From Page 1A
someone had called in
a report of a suspicious
vehicle parked behind
the store. Authorities now
believe this was the vehi-
cle used by the robbers.
The person who called
in the suspicious vehicle
report heard the gunshot
a few minutes later and
saw the vehicle leave in a
hurry. It is described as a
dark-colored sport utility
vehicle.
Some unspecified evi-
dence has been recov-
ered in the case and it has
been sent for lab analysis,
Roberts said.
The sheriff said this in-
cident provides him an
opportunity to remind
the public to exercise
caution when they get
ready to enter a store
in the late hours of the
evening, or anytime
something doesn't look
right. "Be aware of your
surroundings, take a
look around before you
step inside. If something
seems wrong, call us first
and let us check it.out."

Rescue personnel work the scene of a building collapse in downtown Philadelphia on Wednesday.


THE ASSOCIATED PRESS


Building collapses; 1 killed, 13 injured


The Associated Press

PHILADELPHIA A
building that was be-'
ing torn down collapsed
with a thunderous boom
Wednesday, raining bricks
on a neighboring thrift
store, killing a woman and
injuring at least 13 other
people in an accident that
witnesses said was bound
to happen.
Another woman was
pulled from the rubble of
the Salvation Army thrift
store two hours after the
collapse whan rescuers
heard her voice, city fire
Commissioner Lloyd Ayers
said. The search for survi-
vors continued hours af-
ter the 10:45 a.m. collapse
on the edge of downtown
and was to go on through
the night, Ayers said, with
rescuers using buckets and
their bare hands to move
bricks and rubble.
"We're hoping that any-
one that's inside is in a void
and we can have a live res-
cue," he said. "If not, we'll
just take this apart a little
at a time."
The woman who died
was 35 years old, Mayor
Michael Nutter said, but no
other information about
her was released.
Officials said they had no
indication anyone else was
in the thrift shop building
but would keep excavating
to make sure there were no
other victims.
"We do not know how
many people were actu-
ally in the thrift store this
morning when the wall
collapsed on the building,"
Mayor Michael Nutter
said late Wednesday
afternoon.
He said officials from
the Department of Labor
and Occupational Safety
and Health Administration
were at the scene.
Survivors were taken to
hospitals with mostly mi-
nor injuries, and some had
been treated and released


by evening.
The collapse involved an
empty building that once
housed a first-floor sand-
wich shop and apartments
above. The thrift shop was
on one side. The other side
was an adult bookstore
and theater that had been
taken down within the last
few months.
Several witnesses said
they had been casting a
wary eye on the demolition
site and questioned how
the workers were tackling
the job. That raised ques-
tions about how closely
the highly visible spot
on Market Street, one of
Philadelphia's signature
boulevards, was being
monitored.
Roofer Patrick Glynn
said he had been watch-
ing workers take down the
doomed building over the
past few weeks, and he said
he suspected a collapse
was inevitable because of
the methods the workers
were using.
"For weeks they've been
standing on the edge,
knocking bricks off," he
said. "You could just see
it was ready to go at any
time. I knew it was going to
happen."
Glynn and Anthony Soli
were working on a roof
atop a nearby building
when they heard what
sounded like two loud
bangs or explosions. They
immediately ran down
the scaffolding and helped
pull out two women and a
man.
Steve Cramer, who has
been working as a window
washer across the street for
several days, said the de-
molition crew left 30 feet
of a dividing wall up with
no braces and it compro-
mised the integrity of the
building
"We've been calling it for
the past week it's going
to fall, it's going to fall," his
co-worker Dan Gillis said.
There were no existing


violations on the building
and the demolition com-
pany had proper permits
for the work they were do-
ing, according to Carlton
Williams, of the city's De-
partment of Licenses and
Inspections.
The city issued a demo-
lition permit for the four-
story structure on Feb.
1. Online records list the
contractor as Plato Mari-
nakos Jr., an architect. He
said that Campbell Con-
struction was handling the
demolition. A message left
at a listing for Campbell
Construction in Philadel-
phia was not immediately
returned.
A demolition expert
wondered what precau-
tions were taken to pro-
tect the Salvation Army
store, especially since it
remained open. Stephen
Estrin, a Florida contrac-
tor who has testified as an


expert at several trials in-
volving building collapses,
also questioned whether
the demolition was being
done by hand or with ma-
chinery. A piece of equip-
ment with a claw device
was seen amid the debris
Wednesday.
"This is an inner-city
demolition of a masonry
building, which would
normally be done manu-
ally because of the inher-
ent risk predictable
if certain things are not
done very slowly and very
carefully of a collapse,"
Estrin said. "One of the
problems with claw work
is it sets up a vibration in
the walls."
Witnesses said they heard
a loud rumbling sound im-
mediatehly before the col-
lapse. More than 100 res-
cuers and several police
dogs searched through the
rubble.

Soldier pleads


guilty in massacre


of 16 Afghans


The Associated Press

JOINT BASE LEWIS-
MCCHORD, Wash. -The
American soldier accused
of killing 16 Afghan ci-
vilians, many of them
women and children who
were asleep in their vil-
lages, pleaded guilty to
murder Wednesday and
acknowledged to a judge
that there was "not a good
reason in this world" for
his actions.
Staff Sgt. Robert Bales'
plea ensures that he will
avoid the death penalty
for the middle-of-the
night slaying that so
inflamed tensions with
the Afghan population
that the American mili-
tary suspended combat
operations.
Prosecutors say Bales
slipped away before dawn
on March 11, 2012, from
his base in Kandahar
Province. Armed with a
9 mm pistol and an M-
4 rifle equipped with 'a
grenade launcher, he at-
tacked a village of nmd-
walled compounds called
Alkozai, then returned
and woke up a fellow sol-
dier to tell him about it.
The soldier didn't be-
lieve Bales and went back
to sleep. Bales then left
to attack a second village
known as Najiban.
Relatives of the victims
were outraged at the idea
that Bales could escape ex-
ecution when they spoke
to The Associated Press in
April in Kandahar.
"A prison sentence
doesn't mean anything,"
said Said Jan, whose wife
and three other relatives
were slain. "I know we


have no power now. But I
will become stronger, and
if he does not hang, I will
have my revenge."
A jury will decide in Au-
gust whether the soldier
is sentenced to life with or
without the possibility of
parole.
Wednesday's proceed-
ings at Joint Base Lewis-
McChord south of Se-
attle marked the first
time Bales provided a
public account of the
massacre.
For each charge, the
judge asked him a series
of questions to assess the
validity of his plea. Did he
believe he had legal justi-
fication to kill the victims?
Was he acting in self-de-
fense? Did anyone force
or coerce him to commit
the murders?
For each, Bales an-
swered, "No, sir."
In a clear, steady voice,
Bales also read from a
statement.
"This act was without
legal justification, sir,"
the 39-year-old infantry-
man said while seated at
a defense table, his hands
folded in front of him.
At one point, the judge,
Col. Jeffery Nance, asked
Bales why he killed the
villagers.
,Bales responded: "Sir,
as far as why I've asked
that question a million
times since then. There's
not a good reason in this
world for why I did the
horrible things I did."
Given Bales' prior de-
ployments and apparent
PTSD, military law experts
-had suggested that a jury
was unlikely to sentence
him to death.

Tough decision ,



ahead for Mader


BYDUSTIN KENT
dkent@jcfloridan.com .

The 2013 Major League Base-
ball First-Year Player Draft com-
mences tonight and Chipola
pitcher Michael Mader's life
could take a major turn very
soon.
The former Marianna Bull-
dogs star is projected to go
potentially as high as the fifth
round of the 40-round draft,
with the Boston Red Sox and
Arizona Diamondbacks show-
ing the most interest.
The first two rounds of the


draft will be today, with the
third through 10th rounds fol-
lowing Friday, and 11th through
40th on Saturday.
If and when Mader is drafted,
he will have to decide whether
to sign a professional contract
and be assigned to the team's
Rookie League affiliate within
a week, or return to Chipola for
his sophomore season.
"I'm definitely excited about
(the draft)," Mader saidWednes-
day. "But I have no idea about
my decision right now. There's

'Dawgs trying to develop depth, toughness


BY DUSTIN KENT
dkent@jcfloridan.com

Just a year ago, the Marianna
Bulldogs went intp the off-sear
son with more questions than
answers surrounding a team
that was virtually brand-new
with a wealth of inexperience
and unproven talent.
But after a 15-win season in
2012-2013 that featured break-
out performances by some of
their young stars, the Bulldogs
open up the summer season this
year with more known quanti-
ties and the potential to be one
of the top teams in the area.
The Bulldogs will get their
summer started today at Mari-
anna High School with games
against the Blountstown Tigers
at 5 p.m. and the Bainbridge
Bearcats at 7 p.m.
Marianna coach Travis Blan-
ton said his players are more
than ready to get on the court
against live competition.
"We're excited to get to play a
little bit so the kids can compete

play during practice.


against someone other than
themselves," he said. "We're
playing somebody else, so we'll
get a little measuring stick for
where we are and where we
need to go. We'll be facing two


pretty good opponents. Blount-
stown will be better than they
were a year ago, and Bainbridge
will always be very good anl
competitive."
Marianna returns much of its


core from last season in point
guard Shaquarious Baker, wing
players Herman Williams and
Jamel Johnson, and post play-
ers Trey Clemons and Antavi-
ous Leonard.
Blanton said he's excited
about the nucleus that the team
returns, but hopes to use the
summer to build greater depth
and chemistry throughout the
roster.
It's a team that he said has the
potential to be outstanding, but
still has much progress to make
when it comes to doing all the
little things.
"Fundamentally, we've got a
long ways to go, but they're gift-
ed with athleticism," the coach
said. "That's something you've
either got or you don't, and if
you can add that with some
fundamental skills, then you've
got a chance to have a really
good group. But it's the funda-
mental part I really want them
to improve on."

LeBron hopes to get



revenge against Spurs


The Associated Press

MIAMI Before reach-
ing the top of basketball,
LeBron James was run
over by the San Antonio
Spurs.
The Spurs swept James'
Cleveland Cavaliers in the
2007 NBA Finals, so long
ago that the winning game
plan focused on exploiting
James' weaknesses. Those
are nearly impossible to
find now, and James es-
sentially warned the Spurs
that they shouldn't bother
looking.
The Spurs already know.
"He'll be a lot more of a
problem than he was in
'07, that's for sure," Spurs
coach Gregg Popovich said
Wednesday.
Tim Duncan told the
beaten James minutes after
that series that the league
would someday belong to
him, and he was right. The
NBA's MVP guided Miami
to last year's champion-
ship and the league's best
record this season.
Now the Spurs will try to
take it back.
But James is now the best
player in the game, is sur-
rounded by more talent in
Miami than he ever had in
Cleveland, and still carries
the memory of the beating
the Spurs laid on him six
years ago.
"I have something in me
that they took in '07. Beat
us on our home floor, cel-
ebrated on our home floor.
I won't forget that. You
shouldn't as a competitor.
You should never forget
that," James said.
He joined the Heat in


LeBron James and Miami will face San Antonio in the NBA Fi-
nals. James was swept by the Spurs when he led the Cavaliers
to the finals in 2007.


2010, experienced more
finals failure a year later,
then was finals MVP last
year when Miami beat
Oklahoma City in five
games. Another title now
would put him halfway
to the four that Duncan
and Popovich have won
together.
"That's what I'm here
for," James said. "I'm here
to winchampionships, and
you're not always going to
be on the successful side.
I've seen it twice, not being
on the successful side."
He was just 22 at the end
of his fourth year in the
league when he carried to
the Cavs to their first finals
appearance. But there were
holes in his game, from an
unreliable jump shot to an
undeveloped post game,


and the Spurs took advan-
tage of every one of them.
James shot 36 percent
in the series, including a
ghastly 10 for 30 in Game
4, and committed 23
turnovers.
"Well, LeBron is a differ-
ent player than he was in
'07," Popovich said. "That
was like ancient history. He
was basically a neophyte at
the time, wondering how
all this stuff worked and
how it's put together. We
were very fortunate at that
time to get him so early. But
at this point he's grown."
James wasn't interested
in discussing much of that
series, but he' recalled the
way the Spurs' strategy
kept him from getting into
the paint and'dared him to
, shoot jumpers.

From Page 1B
a lot of room for improve-
ment to get better if I stay
at Chipola and come back
the following year with
a lot more to offer, but
there's always the risk of
injury. You could get hurt
on any pitch at any time.
I've been pretty healthy
my entire career so far,
knock on wood."
Mader said that the
minimum signing bo-
nus he would take to sign
a pro contract would be
$330,000; however, if he
improved his stock after
next season and moved up
into the top three rounds of
the draft, the bonus could
be at or near seven figures.
That possibility is one of
several factors that the 6-
foot-2 left-hander said he
would weigh when mak-
ing his decision.
Chipola coach Jeff John-
son said he sees no reason
why the Panhandle Con-
ference Pitcher of the Year
couldn't make such a leap
with just a few improve-
ments in his game.
"We've talked about how
I don't think he's scratched
the surface of where he
could be," he said. "If
Michael keeps working
and developing, he could
be selling himself short
(signing on a fifth or sixth
round selection). There's a
lot of room for improve-
ment where he's possibly
a top three round guy in
another year. If teams like
him as much as they do as
he is right now, I think the
room for improvement is
still left in there. I know
that, actually."
Mader was outstanding
in his freshman season
with the Indians after a
somewhat up and down
start, rebounding from a
tough outing in his first
conference start to win
his final six league games


- going at least seven in-
nings in each to help
the Indians rallyfrom a4-7
record to finish second in
the Panhandle and make
the state tournament.
For the year, Mader was
8-3 with a 3.19 Earned
Run Average, 76 strike-
outs, and 32 walks in 93 in-
nings, while going 6-1 .and
posting a 2.65 ERA with 34
strikeouts and 12 walks in
conference action.
It was an impressive first
season against college
competition, and one that
left Mader convinced that
he's capable of pitching at
the professional level.
"I don't thinkbeing ready
is an issue for me," he said.
"I think on and off the
field I'm mature enough
to handle it. I think I can
compete physically and
with my work ethic. Do I
need improvement? Yes,
but I definitely think I can
compete at that level."
Johnson expressed
similar confidence in his
pitcher's abilities, but also
said that it's important for
young players to take a
long view of their baseball
careers as opposed to get-
ting caught up in the lure
of a big signing bonus.
"When you're talking
about a minor league
deal, you can run through
that money in five or six
years before you get up
there (to the majors). I
don't think (money) needs
to be a factor," the coach
said. "There's a big differ-
ence between being a pro-
fessional baseball player
and being a Major League
Baseball player. I've. had
11 big-leaguers in my time
here and I've probably had
100 guys drafted out of
here. The odds are against
you making it to the big
leagues and that's where
they're going to make their
money ultimately.
"That's why you can't get
too involved in what the
signing bonus because


you've got to make sure
you're going to be ready to
get to the big leagues ulti-
mately. That'swhere you'll
get your money, not from
a signing bonus."
Whatever Mader' de-
cides to do, Jphnson said
it has been fun for him to
see the stars align for a po-
tential pro career for a lo-
cal kid who he has known
since he wasn't much big-
ger than the bats he now
gets hitters to swing and
miss with.
"You've got a kid from
Marianna who has been
in our dugout sine he was.
5-6 years old, throwing the
ball with us or hitting the
ball with us ever since I've
been a head coach here,
so I'm probably a little bit
more invested in this one
than most of the guys we've
had," he said. "I'm proud of
him to have this opportu-
nity to be in this position.
He made such great strides
this year. Hewas good com-
ing out of high school, but
made some great strides,,
not just physically, but
with the mental part of it
and understanding how to
pitch. I'm just really proud
for him."
The moment is not lost
on Mader either, though
he said it still hasn't quite
hit him that he could of-
ficially be a professional
baseball player by the
weekend.
"It actually hasn't sunk in
yet," he said. "I know it in
my head, but in my heart
it really hasn't sunk in that
I could be packing up in a
week and going away for
three months. I've always
dreamed of playing pro-
fessional ball since I was 4
or 5 and always wanted to
be a major league pitcher
since I saw 9. Playing in
college is a blessing to
have that opportunity, but
now to have a chance to
get drafted in the top 10
rounds is even more of a
blessing."

MLB interviewing players in Biogenesis drug probe


The Associated Press

NEW YORK One by
one, for three weeks al-
ready, players accompa-
nied by their lawyers have
been summoned to inter-
views as part of baseball's
latest investigation into
performance-enhancing


drugs and the process is
a long way from finished.
Some pretty big names,
led by Alex Rodriguez,
could be on the hot seat.
A-Rod, Ryan Braun, Nel-
son Cruz, Melky Cabrera
and Bartolo Colon are
among the 20 or so players
who may be disciplined for


theirlinks to the now-closed
Miami anti-aging clinic,
Biogenesis of America.
The players' union says it
has been assured no deci-
sions regarding discipline
will be made until the in-
terviews are completed.
"It would be unfortunate
if anyone prejudged those


investigations," union
head Michael Weiner said.
Interviews with players
started three weeks ago
and are scheduled until the
end of June, according to
people with knowledge of
the process who spoke on
condition of anonymity be-
cause statements on those


details weren't authorized.
Dan Halem, Steven Gonza-
lez and Patrick Houlihan,
lawyers in baseball's labor
relations department, con-
ducted several interviews,
and some players haven't
been scheduled.
"Every player has been or
will be represented by an


attorney from the players'
association," Weiner said.
"The players' association
has every interest in -both
defending the rights of
players and in defending
the integrity of our joint
(drug) program. We trust
that the commissioner's of-
fice shares these interests."


'Dawgs

From Page 1B
Blanton used the ex-
ample of the 2010 and
2011 Rickards Raiders
teams that eliminated
Marianna in consecutive
years in the postseason as
the blueprint for how his
players must improve to
reach their potential next
season.
"I compare kids like this
to the group Rickards had
those years because they
were so athletic, but they
were so fundamental," he
said. "That's what made
the difference with that
group going from be-
ing really good to being
great. They were just so
good fundamentally and
did all the little things.
That keeps coming back
to my mind. I keep think-
ing about how those guys
were and stress that ex-
ample to these kids.
"If this team makes those
kinds of strides, we've
got a chance to be really
good. But that's a big if.
It takes a lot of effort and
time and growth, but they
are absolutely capable of
_fit. If we do that, then we


could have a chance to be
special."
The Bulldogs will still be
a young team next season
with just two seniors on
the roster and two sopho-
mores in Williams and
Clemons playing major
roles.
However, the year of var-
sity experience they got
last season should help
alleviate any concerns
about inexperience or
immaturity.
"We're still young, but
we're a little more experi-
enced now," Blanton said.
"The kids have had an op-
portunity to play together
for a full season, so they
kind of learned each oth-
er's tendencies a little bit
and developed some team
chemistry. It's not enough
yet, but it's improved and
that helps a lot."
The coach said the next
step after gaining expe-
rience is developing the
mental toughness to be
able to compete with the
premier programs in 4A
that will stand in the way
of the Bulldogs making
a deep playoff run next
season.
"We're going to have
to have some toughness


about us to be able to
fight through adversity
and to be able to even
play with the teams like
Rutherford and Bay High
and Godby," Blanton
said. "Those are the kind
of people we'll have on
the schedule this year, so
we'll have to have some
mental toughness to play
with them. Hopefully we


can develop some of that
over the summer because
we're going to need it in
the long run."
Marianna will also com-
pete in the Chipola Team
Camp event over the week-
end, hosting games against
Graceville and Vernon on
Friday and Seminole, Chi-
pley, and Bainbridge on
Saturday

2013 UFS, Dist. by Universal Uclick for UFS


Dear Annie: My husband is a high-rank-
ing officer in the military. He has worked
hard to achieve his current position and is
highly respected.
The problem is, his family treats him
like a child. In a few months, there will
be a formal ceremony to mark his change
of command. My in-laws will be in at-
tendance, and they are certain to embar-
rass him. They insist on calling him by his
unusual childhood nickname (he cringes
every time). They talk down to him and
give him gifts meant for children, such
as books for teen boys (last Christmas),
a small child's backpack (last birthday)
and now a child's piggy bank, which they
intend to present to him in front of his
unit at the ceremony. These gifts are not
intended as jokes. My husband is always
gracious on the outside but horrified on
the inside.

ence and don't fall into a
trap that has snared you
before.

better in a joint endeavor
than a solo effort. Pick
your ally wisely and you'll
do quite well.

very good chances to add
to your material resources
if you assert yourself.
TAURUS (April 20-May

chance of success. Do
what you can on your own
and don't get discouraged.


Is there some way to remind his family
that he is indeed an adult and has certain-
ly earned the right to be treated like one?
PROUD MILITARY SPOUSE
Dear Spouse: It is difficult to change
ingrained behavior without the coopera-
tion of all the people involved. Your hus-
band apparently has determinedthat the
best way to handle his parents is to leave
things as they are. That is his choice. While
we appreciate your desire to be support-
ive and protective, you might also be add-
ing to his stress because your reaction is
one of anger and embarrassment.
Ask your husband whether he wants
you to talk to his parents. If he says no, we
urge you to separate their behavior from
your husband's reputation. His patient
tolerance of their inappropriateness says
many positive things about the strength
of his character.


Josh Billings, the pen name of humorist HenryWheeler
Shaw, said, "There are people who are always anticipat-
ing trouble, and in this way they manage to enjoy many
sorrows that never really happen to them."
Bridge experts, though, are always anticipating trou-
ble, and in this way they manage more plus scores than
those who always assume everything will work out
perfectly.
In today's deal, South opens and closes the auction
with his three-spade bid. West leads the diamond 10.
East wins with his ace and returns the diamond two.
What should South do now?
The traditional requirements for a weak three-bid are
two of the top three or three of the top five honors in the
seven-card suit and 5-10 high-card points. These days
the requirements have been lowered by many players,
especially at favorable vulnerability. But it does not hurt
to have a textbook hand occasionally.
North thought about raising to four spades, but knew
game was unlikely. And he hoped that East might bal-
ance, allowing North to double the opponents and gain
a sizable penalty.
It is tempting for South to win the second trick on the
board and immediately to play a trump. However, with
this layout he would go down. West would take the trick
and give his partner a diamond ruff. East would cash the
heart ace, and West would get a second trump trick.
South should anticipate the 5-2 diamond break. (In
,theory, if East had started with three diamonds, he
would have returned his higher remaining diamond, not
the two.) Before touching trumps, declarer should cash
dummy's top clubs and discard his third diamond.

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

^SS^^'-V


SPEED FREAKS HOT ,i
A couple of questions we ..
just had to ask ourselves


Getrrrvime,, SEAN GARDNER
That's not Tony's teammate
Ryan Newman on the right.
Was Sunday just a mo-
mentary sign of life, or
will we see Tony Stewart
in the Chase?
GODSPEAK: Sign of life? I'd
say Smoke has been wheeled
from the ER, but they took him
to ICU. Yeah, it's that close. The
No. 14 needs to run a bit faster
on a weekly basis.
KEN'S CALL: Let's assume he
has at least one more win this
sufnmer, which should have
bim Chasin' come September.
As for his two teammates..
TNT's six-pack of races
starts this week. Good
news or bad?
GODSPEAK: I like the boys of
summer OK, six weeks of
summer TNT knows drama,
but "gets" the lun side of
racing.
KEN'S CALL: Bad for those
who lock their TV on one,
station; good for those of u.t
who enjoy Kyle Petty and Wally
Dallenbach mixing things up.

Only the conieri was raining on Tony's parade
at Dover.
Tony Stewart and June arrive
together. Why am I not surprised?
Reputations grow quickly and die hard in all
sports; including auto racing. Some o Ithem, by
.the way, are deserved Tony Stewarl's reputation
for healing up in correlation with the weather is
quite deserved. There have been years where
Sa slow start has given way to a very productive
summer. It's lust that this year's start has been
much slower than ever lor Stewart. who proved
after Sunday's win 1hal he's ready to fully
biom.

Oh, you heard his media admonitions?
.They're hard to miss. arernI t they/' It appears,
some rumors had started circulating about '
crew chiet Steve Addingtorn possibly boxing
Shis stuff and moving on to another gig. Tony
dismissed the rumors in hiS usual way. "To have
to sit there and have people question what's
going on and us have to take that much extra
time to try to defuse what you guys planted was
a bunch of crap."

So, in a way, it's your fault?
Speaking Irom experience, I can practically
assure Tony (or was it Anthony, the evil twin?),
that media rarely "plant" such things. Stewart's
fellow competitors probably did that. The
media, generally speaking, don't dirty our '
hands with planting. No, we just load the
harvest on the truck and drive through town,
throwing it to any interested buyers. And they're
always put there. Thankfully.

FEUD OF THE WEEK-.

And you thought you had trouble with your cable company.


LOOK OUT BELOW!


When a cable from Fox Sports' CAMCAT snapped and
fell into the Charlotte Motor Speedway grandstand (10 fans
injured), and'got run over by several race cars, you knew the
discussion would spill over into the following race weekend.
The overhead camera, which debuted during Daytona
Speedweeks without incident, was the next big thing for Fox
broadcasts of NASCAR events. The same type of system is
utilized for NFL games. The race continued .for a few laps
before NASCAR realized the problem.
"I couldn't see what it was, and I went by it twice,"
Jimmie Johnson said. "It was thin, black cable or rope or
whatever. I think it was cable. But you can't see it, especially
when it is dark out and there's a black surface and it's
hanging in the sky."
Denny Hamlin said he had CAMCAT damage to his No. 11
Toyota once the race was stopped to clean up the pieces of
fallen sky.
"I didn't feel anything hit my car until I got out and saw
where it had hit my car," Hamlin said. "I think they did the
only thing they could do. Obviously, when they have an
object that is part of the track that affects the race, it's a new
precedent letting guys fix their cars and taking a break to do
that."
Kurt Busch and his No. 78 team took full advantage of
that unique red-flag period. The standing rule? When the red
flag is displayed, teams may not work on their race cars.
That rule was waived for this incident.
"The way the whole cable problem happened and then
they said people could work on their cars, I quickly jumped
into the whole mindset of like an All-Star race, when they

have a 10-minute break, you can work on any aspect of the
car," he said.
"We got busy with our car. If you're sitting there and you
don't take advantage of that situation, then other teams are
just going to pass you while you're literally sitting still in the
garage or on pit road. You could work on your cars, so let her
rip."
'Busch parlayed Fox's misfortune into a third-place finish.
The incident is being investigated by the network, but there's
a chance this high-flying cat had only one NASCAR life.

Goodbye, boogity man
Fox finished its 13-race stint with the Sprint Cup Series
when the checkered flag fell at Dover International Speedway
on Sunday. Fox hands off to TNT, which does six summer
races before giving way to ESPN. ESPN takes the Cup Series
through the Chase. Everyone will have to wait nine months
before Darrell Waltrip barks "Boogity, boogity, boogity!" at
2014 Speedweeks.

Wolfe spotted
Defending Cup Series champion Brad Keselowski got
his crew chief Paul Wolfe back at the track after a two-race
suspension. In those two races, Keselowski finished 32nd
(Darlington) and 36th (Charlotte). "Getting everyone back
adds to the comfort level," Keselowski said. "1 think we are
going to have a strong few weeks, I really do." Things are
back to normal. Keselowski finished fifth, but the No. 2 Ford
didn't make it through post-race inspection.

* BIGGEST DISAPPOINTMENT:
Jimnfie Johnson
DON'T BE SURPRISED IF: Hamlin's
recent comment that he's lost his
advantage since the repave at Pocono
means "We're gonna smoke 'em.".


GILLILAND NEWMAN
David Gilliland vs. Ryan Newman: The two
came nose to nose after Newman caused
both to wreck late in the Dover race.

Godwin Kelly gives his take: "It looked like
a promising undercard matchup but fizzled
when cooler heads prevailed Go figure."
