Costs to be shared
with county, Gulf Power

BY ANGIE COOK
acook@jcfloridan.com
MARIANNA At a special meet-
ing Monday night, city commis-
sioners met to, decide if the city
of Marianna would join Jackson
County in paying part of the initial
costs involved in getting select area
properties certified through a new
program offered by electric utility
company Gulf Power.
In April, Gulf Power launched its
new site evaluation and certifica-
tion program to help communities
prepare locations for business ex-
pansions and perhaps entice new
industries to Northwest Florida.
Sixteen potential sites includ-
ing three in Jackson County for
new industries and commerce
parks were submitted by cities,
counties and private developers
for inclusion in the certification
program.

Gnomes, dinosaurs and more make summer reading ftim


BY DEBORAH BUCKHALTER
dbuckhalter@jcfloridan.com
The summer reading program
for children is underway at sev-
eral locations in Jackson County,
with roughly 200 kids taking
advantage of the opportunity.
Youngsters can drop in at any
point, but their adults are en-
couraged to call 482-9631 and
let the program manager know
they'll be coming in if they're not
regulars.
Doing so will give Children's
Librarian Lynn Lowenthal a bet-
ter, idea of how much material
she should bring to a given ses-
sion. The youngsters make crafts
to go along with the theme of
each week's session, all focused
this year on earth and it's crea-
tures, with a bit of fantasy thrown

they'll use pipe cleaners, googly
eyes and plastic spoons to fash-
ion ants. One week, they'll make
their own gnomes or trolls out of
wood, felt and paint.
The reading program has been
ongoing for a dozen years in
Grand Ridge, Marianna, Bas-
com, Campbellton, Sneads and
Graceville. Malone was added to
the mix this year.
Unlike the other locations,
there's just one weekly session
in Malone, on Thursdays from
1-2 p.m. at Malone City Hall.
It's organized to serve children
through the age of 18 and is
timed to coincide with a sum-
mer feeding program in that
community.
In the other spots, there are
two back-to-back session each

week, one geared to pre-school-
ers and the other to older chil-
dren. Lowenthal only learned
the Friday before the start of the
summer program last week that a
Malone location would be avail-
able. She said about 20 children
went to the first session there
and that the effort to merge the
age groups for a single session is
going well.
The reading program is held in
the Bascom Community Center
on Monday. Preschoolers meet
from 9:30-10:30 a.m. and school-
agers from 10:45-11:45 a.m.
The program moves to Citizen's
Lodge in Marianna on Monday
afternoons, with a session for
preschoolers from 2-3 p.m. and

Zimmerman portrayed as vigilante in Florida shooting


The Associated Press
SANFORD George
Zimmerman was fed up
with "punks" getting away
with crime and shot 17-
year-old Trayvon Martin
"because he wanted to,"
not because he had to,
prosecutors argued Mon-
day, while the neighbor-
hood watch volunteer's
attorney said the killing
was self-defense against a
young man who was slam-
ming Zimmerman's head
against the pavement.
The prosecution began
opening statements in the
long-awaited murder trial
with shocking language,
repeating obscenities Zim-
merman uttered while
talking to a police dis-
patcher moments before
the deadly confrontation.
The defense opened with
a knock-knock joke about
the difficulty of picking a
jury for a case that stirred
nationwide debate over
racial profiling, vigilantism
and Florida's expansive
laws on the use of deadly
force.
"Knock. Knock," said de-
fense attorney Don West.
"Who is there?"
"George Zimmerman."
"George Zimmerman
who?"
"All right, good. You're on
the jury."
Zimmerman, 29, could
.get life in prison if con-
-victed of second-degree


THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
The father of Trayvon Martin, Tracy Martin, cries as he listens to the description of his son's
death during opening statements in the George Zimmerman trial, with Sybrina Fulton,
Trayvon's mother (left) and Daryl Parks, a family attorney (right) in Seminole circuit court.


murder for gunning down
Martin on Feb. 26, 2012, as
the unarmed black teen-
ager, wearing a hoodie on
a dark, rainy night, walked
from a convenience store
through the gated town-
house community where
he was staying.
The case took on racial
dimensions after Martin's
family claimed that Zim-
merman had racially pro-
filed Martin and that police
were dragging their feet in
bringing charges. Zimmer-
man, whose mother is His-
panic and whose father is
white, has denied the con-
frontation had anything to


first words to the jury re-
counted what Zimmer-
man told a dispatcher in a
call shortly after spotting
Martin: "F---- punks.
These a .--- They always
get away."
Zimmerman was profil-
ing Martin as he followed
him, Guy said. He said
Zimmerman viewed the
teen "as someone about
to commit a crime in his
neighborhood."
'And he acted on it.
That's why we're here," the
prosecutor said.
Zimmerman didn't have
to shoot Martin, Guy said.
"He shot him for the worst


do with race. of all reasons: because he
Prosecutor John Guy's wanted to," he said.


The prosecutor por-
trayed the watch captain
as a vigilante, saying, "Zim-
merman thought it was his
right to rid his neighbor-
hood of anyone who did
not belong."
West told jurors a differ-
ent story: Martin sucker-
punched Zimmerman and
then pounded the neigh-
borhood watch volunteer's
head against the concrete
sidewalk, and that's when
Zimmerman opened fire.
Showing the jury photos
of a bloodied and bruised
Zimmerman, the defense
attorney said, "He had just
taken tremendous blows
to his face,' tremendous
blows to his head."


West said the story that
Martin was unarmed is
untrue: "Trayvon Mar-
tin armed himself with
a concrete sidewalk and
used it to smash George
Zimmerman's head."
The prosecutor, how-
ever, disputed elements
of Zimmerman's story,
including his claim that
Martin put his hands over
Zimmerman's mouth and
reached for the man's gun.
Guy said none of Zimmer-
man's DNA was found on
Martin's body, and none of
the teenager's DNA was on
the weapon or the holster.
ButWest said that doesn't
prove anything, arguing
that crime-scene techni-
cians didn't properly pro-
tect Martin's hands from
contamination.
Two police dispatch
phone calls that could be
important evidence for
both sides were played for
the jury by the defense.
Martin's mother, Sytrina
Fulton, left the courtroom
before the second record-
ing, which has the sound
of the gunshot that killed
Martin.
The first was a call Zim-
merman made to a non-
emergency police dis-
patcher, who told him he
didn't need to be following
Martin.
The, second 911 call,
from a witness, captures
screams in the distant


background from the
struggle between Zimmer-
man and Martin. Martin's
parents said the screams
are from their son, while
Zimmerman's father con-
tends they are his son's.
Circuit Judge Debra Nel-
son ruled last weekend
that audio experts for the
prosecution won't be able
to testify that the screams
belong to Martin, saying
the methods used were
unreliable.
On Monday, one of the
first witnesses for the pros-
ecution was a custodian
of police dispatch calls.
During the witness' testi-
mony, prosecutors started
playing police calls Zim-
merman had made in the
months before he shot
Martin. The defense ob-
jected, arguing the calls
were irrelevant.
The judge said she
would address the mat-
ter Tuesday and sent the
jurors to the hotel where
they are being sequestered
for the duration of the trial,
which could last several
weeks
Other witnesses who
testified Monday included
a convenience store clerk
and the 911 dispatcher
who took Zimmerman's
call when he was following
Martin. Martin had gone
to the convenience store
to buy Skittles and a can of
iced tea.

CINCINNATI An
acrobatic pilot and a wing

crash at an air show over
the weekend had 'clean
safety records, according
to Federal Aviation Ad-
ministration records re-
leased Monday, when new
details emerged about the

the fallen performers.
Neither wing walker
Jane Wicker, who had a
pilot's license, nor pilot
Charlie Schwenker had
accidents in the past or
was disciplined for any
reason, FAA 'spokesman
Roland Herwig said the
agency records show. The
information was released
as the result of a public
records request by The
Associated Press.
Wicker and Schwen-
ker, both of Virginia, were
killed Saturday in a crash
captured on video and
witnessed by thousands
,of horrified spectators
at the Vectren Air Show

Flames erupt from a plane after a stunt plane crashed while
performing with a wing walker at the Vectren Air Show,
Saturday, June 22 in Dayton, Ohio. The crash killed the pilot
and the wing walker instantly, authorities said.


divorced mother of two
teenage boys, was en-
gaged to bei married next
year on top of an air-
plane. Her fiance, a pilot
and airplane mechanic
she met three years ago,
was learning how to wing
walk himself for what the
pair called "the world's
most unusual wedding,"
. according to a website
on which they talk of how
they met, how he pro-
posed in Las Vegas and
their plans.
"Their story has just be-
gun and a lifetime of ad-
venture is in store for this
couple," according to the
site wingwalkwedding.


com. "Their future looks
loftier every day."
Schwenker, 64, would
have celebrated his
nfiine-year wedding anni-
versary on Tuesday. His
wife, Susan Gantz, said it
was love at first sight
when theywent on a blind
date 20 years ago. She
said her husband was
"the most amazing
human being."
"From the day we met,
we knew," Gantz said
through tears. "We knew
that it was something
way way special. He knew
it, and I knew it. I felt like
I'd known him my whole
entire life."


Gantz, a nurse who loves
gardening, said she and
her husband loved going
on long walks with their
dog, Tucker. Schwenker
would stare up at birds
and planes in the sky,
Gantz at all the flora and
fauna along the way.
"I'm the earth person;
he was the sky person,"
Gantz said.
She said Schwenker, a
longtime ski patrolman
and a civil engineer pas-
sionate about conserving
and ,providing safe water,"
was no daredevil but an
exacting pilot who took
no unmeasured risks.
"When you see these
guys it seems really risky,
but they are the most
careful, cautious, safety-
conscious people you'll
ever meet," Gantz said.
"If the plane didn't sound
right, if something was
off, he wouldn't fly.
"I absolutely know
something went wrong
with the plane," she said.
Friends and family were
working on planning fu-

'I Am Legend' author Richard Matheson dies at 87


The Associated Press

LOS ANGELES Rich-
ard Matheson, the pro-
lific sci-fi and fantasy
writer whose "I Am Leg-
end" and "The Shrinking
Man" were transformed
into films, has died. He
was 87.


A spokesman for the
Academy of Science Fic-
tion, Fantasy and Horror
Films says Matheson died
Sunday in Los Angeles.
No other details were
provided.
Several of Matheson's
works were adapted
into movies, including


"Hell House" and "What
Dreams May Come."
Matheson was also
responsible for writ-
ing several episodes of
"The Twilight Zone." His
installments included
"Nightmare at 20,000
Feet," which featured
William Shatner as an


airplane passenger who
spots a creature on the
plane's wing.
SMatheson's sci-fl vam-
pire novel "I Am Legend"
inspired three film adap-
tations: 1964's "The Last
Man on Earth," 1971's
"Omega Man" and 2007's
"I Am Legend."

lightning


safety tips
From staff reports
Summer is the peak
season for lightning-re-
lated deaths and injuries,
though people .are struck
by lightning year-round.
The National Weather
Service provides a wide
range of information about
lightning, including these
facts and tips:
General Tips
)) No outdoor area is safe
when you hear thunder.
)) If you hear thunder,
find a safe indoor shelter
(a substantial building or
enclosed, metal-topped
vehicle with the windows
up).
Indoor Safety Tips
)) Stay off corded phones,
computers and other
electrical equipment.
Avoid plumbing, in-
cluding sinks, baths and
faucets.
)) Stay away from porch-
es, windows and doors.
)) Never lie on concrete
floors or lean against
concrete walls.
Outdoor Safety Tips
No outdoor area is safe
during a thunderstorm,
but if you're caught out-
side with no" safe shelter
options, take these steps to
reduce your risk of being
struck by lightning:
)) Come down from
elevated areas.
)) Never lie flat on the
ground.
)) Never take shelter
under an isolated tree.
)) Never use a cliff or
rocky overhang for shelter.
)) Immediately get out
and away from ponds,
lakes and bodies of water.
)) Stay away from objects
that conduct electricity,
such as wire fences.

The firm McCallum
Sweeney Consulting will
be retained by Gulf Power
to evaluate the sites, make
recommendations for pre-
paring a site and then cer-
tify that the site is ready to
be occupied. That designa-
tion could be appealing to
a business looking to ex-
pand or relocate.
Next steps for the pro-
gram include a complete
evaluation of the sites by


McCallum Sweeney. The
firm will provide a list of
improvements necessary
to become certified, which
may include things like
needed permits, drainage/
grading, transportation
infrastructure or environ-
mental assessments. Sites
will have a year to com-
plete the improvements.
Once complete, they will
notify McCallum Sweeney,
who will re-evaluate the
site and assess whether it
can be certified.
As the Floridan reported
last week, county commis-
sioners recently voted to


pay for one-fourth of the
initial costs for this multi-
phase certification pro-
cess, with the expectation
that the city of Marianna
would match that invest-
ment; Gulf Power is paying
for half of the estimated
$63,000 bill.
The Jackson County
sites up for certification
include a 500-acre parcel
located within the Marian-
na/Jackson County Distri-
bution Park and Construc-
tion Services Park (where
Family Dollar Distribu-
tion Center and Hanson
Concrete are located); the


1,600-acre Marianna Air-
port and Industrial Park;
and a 1,285-acre area of
raw land referred to as the
Malloy/Oakdale site (at
1-10, east of Ruby Tues-
day restaurant). That last
site is the only privately
held parcel currently in-
volved in the certification
attempt, but the Jackson
County Development
Council has an option
agreement in place to
potentially buy it.
Site visits by McCallum
Sweeney are expected to
begin in late July and com-
munity leaders should


know by early September if
the sites are deemed suit-
able to continue through
the process. If any of the
three Jackson County sites
are, funding to make need-
ed improvements will be
sought from outside sourc-
es. Marianna City Manager
Jim Dean told commis-
sioners Monday that the
goal was to secure funding
from the Florida Depart-
ment of Economic Op-
portunity and support-
ing documentation from
the JCDC indicated
that other state and/
or federal dollars may


be pursued, as well as
funding from private
parties.
By a vote of 4-0 (com-
missioner Allan Ward was
absent), the commission-
ers approved a motion
to use $4,125 from the
city's general fund and
another $11,625, which
will be budgeted, to-
ward the Gulf Power site
evaluation and certifica-
tion program.
The next meeting of the
Marianna City Commis-
sion will be Tuesday, July
2 at 7 p.m., one hour later
than the usual start time.

In Brief
Bomb attacks in Iraq
kill at least 42
BAGHDAD A series
of evening bombings near
markets in and around
Baghdad and other blasts
north of the capital killed
at least 42 people and
wounded dozens of others
Monday in the latest erup-
tion of bloodshed to rock
Iraq.
The attacks were the
latest in a wave of violence
that has claimed more
than 2,000 lives since the
beginning of April. Mili-
tants, building on Sunni
discontent with the Shiite-
led government, appear
to be growing stronger in
central and northern Iraq.
The violence came
as tens of thousands of
Shiites poured into the
holy city of Karbala, 50
miles south of Baghdad,
for the annual festival of
Shabaniyah, marking the
anniversary of the birth of
the ninth-century Shiite
leader known as the Hid-
den Imam. Tight security
measures were in force to
try to prevent insurgent at-
tacks on the worshippers.
High court sends back
Texas race-based plan
WASHINGTON-Af-
firmative action in college
admissions survived
Supreme Court review
Monday in a consensus
decision that avoided the
difficult constitutional
issues surrounding a chal-
lenge to the University of
Texas admission plan.
Justice Anthony Kennedy
wrote the court's 7-1 ruling
that said a court should
approve the use of race as
a factor in admissions only
after it concludes "that no
workable race-neutral al-
ternatives would produce
the educational benefits of
diversity."
But the decision did not
question the underpin-
nings of affirmative action,
which the high court last
reaffirmed in 2003.
South Africa: Mandela
'asleep' during visit
JOHANNESBURG
-South Africa's president
on Monday said a critically
ill Nelson Mandela was
"asleep" when he visited
the 94-year-old at the
hospital, ,and he urged the
country to pray for Man-
dela, describing him as
the "father of democracy"
who made extraordinary
sacrifices on behalf of his
people.
President Jacob Zuma
told dozens of foreign and
South African journalists
that doctors are doing ev-
erything possible to help
the former president feel
comfortable on his 17th'
day in a Pretoria hospital,
but refused to give details
of Mandela's condition,
saying: "I'm not a doctor."
The briefing came a day
after the government said
Mandela's condition had
deteriorated and was now
critical.

Brazil sets $23B hike
for improved transit
SAO PAULO Under
pressure after more than
a week of nationwide
protests, Brazilian leader
Dilma Rousseff said Mon-
day her government will
spend $23 billion more on
public transportation and
announced five core areas
that leaders will focus on
to speed political reform
and improvements to
government services.
Rousseff made the


announcement after
meeting with leaders of a
free-transit activist group
that launched the first
demonstrations more than
a week ago and has called
for new protests Tuesday.
The president also opened '
a meeting of governors
and mayors from 26 capi-
tal cities to discuss ways to
make deep improvements.
"I mainly want to repeat
that my government is
listening to democratic
voices. We must learn
to hear the voices of the
street," Rousseff said at the
opening of the meeting.

SEND HIM BACK


U.S. urges nations to return Snowden


The Associated Press


QUITO, Ecuador The
U.S. grasped for help
Monday from both 'adver-
saries and uneasy allies in
an effort to catch fugitive
National Security Agency
leaker Edward Snowden.
The White House de-
manded that he be denied
asylum, blasted China
for letting him go and
urged Russia to "do the
right thing" and send him
back to America to face
espionage charges.
Snowden was believed
to be in Russia, where he
fled Sunday after weeks
of hiding out in Hong
Kong following his disclo-.
sure of the broad scope
of two highly classified
counterterror surveillance
programs to two news-
papers. The programs
collect vast amounts of
Americans' phone records
and worldwide online data
in the name of national
security.
Snowden had flown
from Hong Kong to Russia,
and was expected to fly
early Monday to Havana,
from where he would

Edward Snowden on a flight to Havana, Cuba, arrives at the gate at Sheremetyevo airport,
Moscow on Monday.


continue on to Ecuador,
where he has applied for
asylum. But he didn't get
on that plane and his ex-
act whereabouts were
unclear. /
The founder of WikiLe-
aks, the secret-spilling
organization that has
embraced Snowden,
said the American was
only passing through
Russia on his way to an
unnamed destination to
avoid the reach of U.S. au-
thorities. Julian Assange
said Snowden had applied
for asylum in Ecuador,


Iceland and possibly other
countries.
Despite its diplomatic
tough talk, the U.S. faces
considerable difficulty in
securing cooperation on
Snowden from nations
with whom it has chilly
relations.
The White House said
Hong Kong's refusal to
detain Snowden had "un-
questionably" hurt rela-
tions between the United
States and .China. While
Hong Kong has a high
degree of autonomy from
the rest of China, experts


said Beijing probably or-
chestrated Snowden's
exit in an effort to
remove an irritant in Sino-
U.S. relations. President
Barack Obama and Chi-
nese President Xi Jinping
met earlier this month
in California to smooth
over rough patches in the
countries' relationship,
including allegations of
hacking into each other's
computer systems.
Secretary of State John
Kerry urged Moscow to "do
the right thing" amid high-
level pressure on Russia to


turn over Snowden.
"We're following all the
appropriate legal channels
and working with various
other countries to make
sure that the rule of law
is observed," Obama told
reporters when asked if he
was confident that Russia
would expel Snowden.
Obama's spokesman,
Jay Carney, said the
U.S. was expecting the
Russians "to look at the
.options available to them
to expel Mr. Snowden
back to the United States
to face justice for the
crimes with which he is
charged."
Carney was less
measured about China.
"The Chinese have
emphasized the impor-
tance of building mutual
trust," he said. 'And we
think that they have
dealt that effort a seri-
ous setback. ...This was a
deliberate choice by the
government to release a
fugitive despite a valid
arrest warrant, and that
decision unquestionably
has a negative im-
pact on the U.S.-China
relationship."


Historic immigration bill dears Senate test


The Associated Press

WASHINGTON His-
toric immigration legisla-
tion cleared a key Senate
hurdle with votes to spare
on Monday, pointing the
way to near-certain pas-
sage within days for $30
billion worth of new se-
curity measures along the
border with Mexico and
an unprecedented chance
at citizenship for mil-
lions living in the country
illegally.
The vote was 67-27,
seven more than the 60
needed, with 15 Republi-
cans agreeing to advance
legislation at the top of
President Barack Obama's
second-term domestic
agenda.
. The, vote came as
Obama campaigned
from the White House for
the bill, saying, "now is
the time" to overhaul
an immigration system
that even critics of the
legislation agree needs
reform.
Last-minute frustration
was evident among oppo-
nents. In an unusual slap
at members of his own


"I hope that we can get the strongest possible vote
out of the Senate so that we can then move to
the House and get this done before the summer
break."
Barack Obama,
President of United States


party as well as Demo-
crats, Republican Sen. Ted
Cruz of Texas said it ap-
peared that lawmakers on
both sides of the politi-
cal aisle "very much want
a fig leaf" on border se-
curity to justify a vote for
immigration.
Senate passage on
Thursday or Friday would
send the issue to the
House, where conserva-
tive Republicans in the
majority oppose citizen-
ship for anyone living in
the country illegally.
Some GOP lawmak-
ers have appealed to
Speaker John Boehner not
to permit any immigra-
tion' legislation to come
to a vote for fear that
whatever its contents, it
would open the door to
an unpalatable compro-
mise with the Senate. At

dkent@jcfloridan.com

The Marianna Darlings All-Stars won
a rematch with Sneads 16-7 on Sunday
to avoid elimination and set themselves
up for a potential District 2 champion-
ship on Monday night.
Marianna opened the tournament
Saturday morning with a 7-6 win over
host Wewahitchka, but fell to Sneads 10-
3 in the second game of the day to go to
the brink of elimination.
See MARIANNA, Page 6B


Morrissey had a breakout senior season
in 2013, leading the Hornets with a .474
batting average, 37 hits, 42 runs, 11 dou-
bles, a .598 on-base percentage, a .705
slugging percentage, and 33 stolen bases.
It was enough to get the attention of
Bobcats coach Wayne Albury, who of-
fered the Cottondale shortstop a chance
to fulfill a lifelong dream to play .college
baseball.
"I'm pretty excited about it. I can't wait,"
Morrissey said. "It's something I've always
wanted to do. I'm just glad I got the op-
portunityto play in college. It's not every
day you get a chance to go to school for

Dear Annie: My. older sister, "Johanna,"
was diagnosed with inflammatory breast
cancer two years ago. Since then, she
seems to have one new "lifelong dream"
after another that she expects my brother
and me to finance.
My brother has worked hard his entire
life and saved his money.-He tried help-
ing Johanna with her first dream (a
house) with a loan. Her husband initially
told Johanna that my brother refused
to help, and Johanna told him to "die a
miserable death." She lightened up when
she found out the truth. When the bank
didn't approve the deal, she did repay
most of the money. I've tried to help her,
too, but I could not afford to keep giving
her money.
Johanna's latest dream is a hobby farm.
She asked my brother to give her $18,000
as an outright gift. He told her no. Jo-
hanna stopped speaking to both of us,
even though I have no control over what
my brother does.
Here's thereal problem. Her husband
recently asked both of us for money and,
as always, made sure to mention that she
might die any moment. They have both
used her possible death to guilt us into


At the bridge table, declarer, after observing the
dummy, collects facts-winners and losers- and
reflects by combining them. Then he tries to find
the best line of play without experimentation.
In today's deal, how should South play in six no-
trump after West leads the club jack?
As soon as North opened the bidding, South
knew it was either a six or seven deal. But he
started quietly with a two-diamond response.
However, when North raised diamonds, South
launched Blackwood to learn that the diamond
king was missing.
South can afford one diamond loser, not two. If
the suit is splitting 2-1, there are no problems. So
declarer should assume a 3-0 break.
If South first cashes his ace, he loses two tricks
when West discards. Similarly, if declarer starts by
calling for dummy's queen, he fails when East has
the void. The guaranteed line is to take the first
trick on the board and play the diamond three.
If East pitches, South wins with his ace and leads
back toward dummy's queen. But when East
plays the two, declarer covers with his four! Here,
that wins the trick and the contract is safe. But if
West takes the trick, the suit must be 2-1.


Horoscope
CANCER (June 21-July
22) 8e alert for some
material opportunities
since you could gain from
a situation initiated by
another.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -
Upon first hearing, some
of your mate's ideas might
sound outlandish, but
after careful evaluation,
you might judge them to
be much more clever than
you thought.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
- This is a good day to try
out a new method or sys-
tem you've been contem-
plating for some time.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23)
- Strive to fulfill your so-
cial obligations, especially
if they could lead you to
some new people. There
are indications that you
could meet someone very
interesting.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov.
22) -A situation of some
importance that hasn't
been going your way re-
cently could take a turn for
the better.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-
Dec. 21) -There could be
good reason why someone
has been lingering in your
thoughts. Get in touch
with him or her because
some pleasant develop-
ments could occur.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan.
19) -You could be in a
fortunate cycle where your
finances and material
interests are concerned.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-
Feb. 19) -You're a quick
thinker, and your sponta-
neous notions are likely to
be very good.
PISCES (Feb. 20-March
20) -There's a good
chance that you could
reap some rewards from
a past good deed. This
remuneration may come
aboutfro'm someone
other than the person you
helped.
ARIES (March 21-April
19) One of your great-
est successes is likely to
come from a venture that
you only recently became
interested in.
TAURUS (April 20-May
20) Initially, you could
be unsure when you
find yourself challenged
by a unique develop-
ment. However, you'll
thrive under the difficult
circumstances.


giving her money. Annie, I love my sister;
but it doesn't seem right that they use
this as a weapon against us. It also both-
ers me that Johanna stops speaking to us
if we deny her.
SNone of usis wealthy. If I had the cash,
I'd give it to her. But I also understand my
brother's point of view. Another sibling
took him for a lot of money many years
ago, running up thousands of dollars in
credit card debt. There is a good possibil-
ity that nothing will come of this hobby
farm, and we'd all be out a lot of money,
and for what? We aren't young anymore.
What do you advise?
-TORN SISTER

Dear Tom: It's obvious that you want
to be a good sister to Johanna. When
someone is having health problems,
you should be supportive emotionally,
offer to cook meals or help with errands.
But there is no obligation to buy them a
hobby farm or any other expensive slice
of wish fulfillment. Johanna is .using her
illness to manipulate you, counting on
your guilt to get what she wants. Too
bad she cannot appreciate what you are
already giving her: your love and caring.

Nadal upset in first round


The Associated Press

LONDON For the sec-
ond straight year, Rafael
Nadal is leaving Wimble-
don early after a stunning
loss to a little-known play-
er ranked in the hundreds.
In one of the tourna-
ment's greatest upsets, an
ailing Nadal was knocked
out in straight sets Mon-
day by 135th-ranked Steve
Darcis of Belgium the
Spaniard's first loss in the
opening round of any
Grand Slam event.
The free-swinging Dar-
cis defeated the two-time
champion 7-6 (4), 7-6 (8),
6-4 on Court 1, ending
Nadal's 22-match winning
streak and eliminating one
of the Big Four of men's
tennis on the very first day
of the grass-court Grand
Slam.
After serving an ace down
the middle on match point,
Darcis conceded he was as
surprised as everyone.
"Nobody was expecting
me to win," he said. "So I
had to play a good match,
relax, and enjoy the game.
That's what I did."
There were no surprises
for the other big names:
Defending champion Rog-
er Federer, bidding for a
record eighth Wimbledon
title, and second-seeded
Andy. Murray both won
ii straight sets on Centre
Court.
Nadal was sidelined
for seven months with a
left knee injury after los-
ing in the second round
of Wimbledon last year.

MHS coach Travis Blanton
said gave his team a big
boost.
"Trey showed up and
gave our kids more
confidence," the coach
said. "He also gave us
some rebounding offen-
sively and defensively

things that happened Fri-
day. We just played bet-

But it was a different

final round.
"Ourbatswere prettycold

urday)," Marianna coach

errors on the bases and in

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
Rafael Nadal reacts after missing a point during his match
against Steve Darcis of Belgium at the All England Lawn Tennis
Championships in Wimbledon, London, on Monday.


He seemed to be strug-
gling physically Monday..
He was unable to turn on
the speed or use his legs
to spring into his ground-
strokes, limping and fail-
ing to run for some shots.
Nadal declined to blame
any injury and gave. full
credit to the 29-year-old
Darcis, who had never
beaten a top-5 player be-


just want to see some
improvements."
The run came to an end
early Sunday with a 54-40
loss to Eustis to start the
camp-ending tournament,
but Blanton said he was
still satisfied' with what
his team took from the
camp.
"We got some good
things accomplished. The
record is not a reflection of
what actually happened,
as far as us being satis-
fied with what we. accom-
plished over the weekend,"
Blanton said. "It was a great


able to capitalize on it. But
we came back' (Sunday)
and were able to regroup a
little bit. I was really proud
of the way the girls played.
They showed a lot of heart
and character."
SFour Marianna players
had threehits on the night,
with Amari Brown, Mattie
Rooks, Lexie Spooner and
Sara Castleberry all going
34or-3 at the plate, with
Spooner picking up two
doubles and a triple.
Brianna Standiford, Jas-
mine Bess, Jaysoni Fowler,
Amiya Summerwell, and
Josie Granger all had two


name is, so everyone will
get a chance to show what
they can do and the bet-
ter player will start. I'll- be
given that opportunity and
I'm going to take it and try
to prove to the coach that
I'm the one who should be
starting."
Ohier said he has had a
good long-standing rela-
tionship with the Bobcats
coach and thinks the Hor-
nets start will be in good
hands.
"I'm really glad Ryan
landed with Peru State. I've
gotten to know Wayne the
last six or seven years, and
not only has he built a great
program out there, but he's
a coach I feel comfortable
with Ryan playing for," he
said. "He really cares about


fore and has yet to go be-
yond the third round of
any Grand Slam.
"I don't ... talk about
my knee this afternoon,"
Nadal said. "Only thing
that can say today is con-
gratulate Steve Darcis. He
played a fantastic match.
Everything that I will say
today about my knee is an
excuse, and I don't like to


experience and a great
camp. It was super duper
competitive, the facilities
were nice, and it was very
well run and highly orga-
nized. It was just a good
camp.
"We. would've liked to
have played in a couple
of games Sunday, but the
team that beat us was re-
ally good. We played up
against a higher level of
competition. But overall,
we got a lot out of it. Guys
like Clifford Scott, Garrett
Speights, Brandon Smith,
all those kids coming off


hits apiece for Marian-
na, and everyone in the
lineup had at least one
hit.
"That was a great game.
As a coach, you can't ask
for anything better than
that," Beebe said.
"We just came out with
the mindset that we're go-
ing to hit the ball hard. We
were a little tentative that
first game, made a couple
of errors, and had a cou-
ple of calls go against us
that could've gone either
way. With 8-year-old girls,
they've got to play happy.
When they play happy,


his. players and will be a
great influence on Ryan."
Morrissey said he was
excited to be playing at
Peru State, but being able
to play college baseball
period was reason enough
for celebration.
"It's (been a dream) ever
since I picked up a base-
ball and a baseball bat,"


put any excuse when I'm
losing a match like I lost
today.'
Darcis, who had won
only one previous match
at Wimbledon, played the
match of his life Monday,
going for his shots and
moving Nadal from corner
to corner. Darcis amassed
a total of 53 winners, com-
pared with 32 for Nadal.
"Of course, Rafa didn't
play his best tennis," Dar-
cis said. "I could see it. So
I took advantage of it, tried
to fight. Maybe he was
not in the best shape ever.
Maybe he didn't play his
best match. But I have to
be proud of me, I think."
Darcis said he didn't know
whether Nadal was injured,
or was just troubled by the
grass conditions.
"Not the day to talk about
these kind of things," Nadal
said. "I am confident that I
will have a good recovery
and be ready for the next
tournaments."
Darcis finished the
match in style, serving his
13th ace as Nadal failed to
chase the ball.
Darcis is the lowest
ranked player to beat
Nadal at any tournament
since Joachim Johansson
- ranked No. 690 de-
feated the Spaniard in 2006
in Stockholm. Gustavo
Kuerten, in 1997, was the
last reigning French Open
champion to lose in the
first round at Wimbledon.
Nadal was coming off
his eighth championship
at the French Open this
month.

and Tommy White did a
great job stepping up for

ille at 7 p.m.

they do great things, but
they just got a little down
on themselves and it
snowballed and Sneads
capitalized."
Rooks led the team with
three runs scored, while
Brown, Standiford, and
Granger all scored twice.
The win left three teams
- Marianna, Sneads, and
Wewahitchka all with
three losses, and Sneads
got a bye into' the final
game, leaving Marianna
and Wewahitchka to battle
it out at 7 p.m., Monday
night for a berth in the title
game at 9 p.m.


he said. "It really doesn't
matter where I go; I'm
just excited and blessed
to be able to continue my
dream and play baseball
for the next four years. Af-
terwards, maybe I'm good
enough for more, but for
now, I'm just going to enjoy
it and take it one step at a
time."

and then taking a 7-3 vic-
tory to take the title.
Marianna coach Da-
vid Castleberry said the
road to the champion-
ship wasn't as smooth as
he had hoped, but he was
proud of his players for
responding to the adver-
sity.of Saturday's loss.
"Having to play from
behind is always tough,
but the girls just went out
there and put their hearts
into it and decided they
wanted to win," he said.
"They left it all on the
field. I was real proud of
them."
In the first game, Gabby
Bess started in the circle
and went the distance
to get the win, striking
out nine Wewahitchka
batters.
The Marianna offense
only generated three hits,
but all three of them ac-
counted for the team's
four runs, with an RBI
single by Angel Curry and
a two-RBI hit by Ashlyn
Wierman in the first in-
ning putting Marianna
up 3-0.
SDiamond Vann led off
the bottom of the third
inning, moved to sec-
ond on a fielder's choice
by Curry, and scored the
fourth Marianna run on
an RBI triple by Bess.
Wewahitchka got a pair
of runs in the top of the
fourth inning, but got no
closer.
In the second game,
Marianna used a six-run
third inning to blow open
a 1-1 game, with Jadyn
Stevens coming up with
a two-RBI hit, while Kim-
berly Jones, Faith Castle-
berry, Alexis Rountree,
Emily Wells and Vann
all drew walks, and Anni
Beebe was hit by a pitch.
Wewahitchka added
runs in the fourth and
fifth innings, but Marian-
na pitcher Lauryn Brock
held the lead for her team
and got the win for going
the distance in the circle,
striking out three and al-
lowing just one hit.

David Castleberry said
that the team's blueprint
of good pitching and
sound defense worked ex-
actly as he and his fellow
coaches had hoped going
into the tournament.
"Our pitchers threw re-
ally well and got ground
balls, some fly balls,
struck out some, and our
defense played excep-
tional," the coach said.
"It's like we said early
in the season, if we con-
centrate on defense and
pitching, we'll be OK. We
really concentrated on
our defense and pitching.
I really believe that if you
throw strikes and limit
your errors, you'll stay in
the game and that's what
happened. We got the key
hits when we needed to
and that ultimately won
it for them."
The Marianna All Stars
now get to continue their
season at the state tour-
nament in Brooksville,
with opening ceremonies
slated for July 4 and the
tournament running July
5-9.
"We're real proud of the
girls. All the parents are
proud," the coach said.
"We're just looking for-
ward to going down and
competing in the state
tournament. It's huge
for these kids. That's the
reason that they're going.
They committed over half
their summer to going
out and playing for a state
title and practicing hard.
They're going to get that
chance now, and I'm real
proud for them. It's what
they wanted."
