In this file photo from March 2011, Marianna City Commissioner
Howard Milton listens as a discussion Is underway-at City Hall.
Shortly after this photo was taken, he retired from public
service after 26 years on the city commission. Milton died
Sunday morning at the age of 87.
Howard Milton called
9a pillar of the community"
BY DEBORAH BUCKHALTER
Howard Milton, who
served on the Marianna
City Commission for 26
years before retiring from
his Seat 4 post at age 85 in
2011, died Sunday morn-
ing, Nov. 3.
Friend Cookie Marks
said Milton was always
a humble public servant
who worked quietly but
diligently in the best in-
terests of his city and the
people who live there.
"He was a pillar of the
community and his,fam-
ily," Marks said. "A lot
of people may not have
known that he was, as far
as I know, the only man
from Jackson County who
was there when the Japa-
nese bombed Pearl Har-
bor. He was in the Navy,
but he didn't talk much
about that. In fact, he was
pretty quiet about most
things unless you pushed
him a little you'd have
to ask for him to talk about
things because he never
thought of himself as any-
thing special. But he was,
and we all knew it If you
could get him talking, you
could learn a lot. He be-
lieved in saving money
and investing wisely, and
he believed in entrepre-
neurship. He was also one
of the first and staunchest-
supporters of the Boys to
Men Choir and Save the
Children," Marks said in
recalling his involvement

Veterans get free dental, medical care Nov. 7,14
From staff report
Veterans living in Jackson and sur-
rounding counties can get some free
medical and dental care in Panama
City on Nov. 7 and in Freeport on
Nov. 14 as a nonprofit clinic honors
and acknowledges their history of
military service. The dentists and
other physicians on staff at PanCare
will only be treating veterans on
that day, but you must call to make
an appointment for either day and
show up with proof of your military
service. Income status is not a factor
in getting the free care.
The dental services available are
exams, X-rays, extractions, fillings
and cleaning as needed. Medical
services will include ear and eye
exams, blood pressure checks and
screenings for blood sugar, oxygen
levels and hemoglobin. Veterans will
also have an opportunity to discuss
other dental and health care issues
with the dentists and other physi-
cians they see.
Veterans will also receive free

I POWERBALL "
It's been a poignant week for the people of Jackson
County, who have bid farewell to three larger-than-
life public figures.
Howard Milton, who served as mayor for four terms
during his 26-year tenure on the Marianna City Com-
mission, died this week. He was 87.
Milton is remembered as a pillar of the community,
an appropriate appellation for a man who quietly lent
his talents and courage to causes he believed in. Among
such initiatives are the Boys to Men Choir and the Save
the Children program.
Marianna is fortunate to have been the beneficiary of
his gentle leadership for so long. His contributions will
John Mader, who served in county law enforcement
and emergency services, also died last weekend. Mader
served as a deputy and investigator with the Jackson
County Sheriff's Office until taking the reins of the
county's Emergency Management Agency. Once he -
retired, he returned to the Sheriff'sDflfce in a part-time
capacity, and was "a calming influence," said Sheriff
Matt Dryden, whose work with horses and livestock is
legendary, died on Saturday. He served as president of
the Jackson County Cattleman's Association and oper-
ated Circle D Rodeo, introducing untold numbers of
people to the pleasures of rodeo participation.
We celebrate the contributions of these men, and
hope their lives serve as models for younger genera-
tions. We need more like them.
Follow Ohio's lead
Earlier this month, Ohio became the 25th state to
decide that it would accept federal funding to ex-
pand Medicaid, giving more Americans health in-
surance coverage that they could not otherwise afford.
The political courage displayed by Ohio Gov. John
Kasich stands in marked contrast to Florida's failure to
sign up for Medicaid expansion and the indecisiveness
of Gov. Rick Scott.
Like Mr. Scott, Gov. Kasich is a conservative Repub-
lican. He is the eighth Republican governor to oversee
Medicaid expansion. The decision means Ohioans can
enroll in Medicaid if they earn less than 138 percent of
the federal poverty level.
In accepting the federal funds, Gov. Kasich offered
both a moral and practical justification for his action ...
None of this should be particularly controversial. It's
about offering those who are among, the most vulner-
able the chance to have better health. Shouldn't that be'
a reasonable aim of good government?
Yet it has raised a storm of protest among conser-
vatives in Ohio because Medicaid expansion is part
of the Affordable Care Act that many of them detest.
They have gone so far as to file a lawsuit to stop Ohio
from accepting the federal money and the vway that the
governor made an end run around the Republican-con-
trolled Legislature to get the funds.
Kasich is standing his ground. Apparently, he knows a
good deal when he sees it and is not afraid to buck his
own party on behalf of a good cause.
Now back to Florida.
Gov. Scott, though opposing Obamacare, did the
math and sided with Medicaid expansion here, a sen-
sible move that would have returned an estimated $51
billion in federal funds to Florida over the next 10 years-
and created an estimated 120,000 new jobs.,...
Ohio has joined those states willing to put common
sense and good governance ahead of partisan politics
and ideology when it comes to Medicaid. How long will
it take Florida to wake up?
Truths about government spending
G& iven the great hullabaloo in
Washington over govern-
ment spending, here are a
couple of noteworthy facts: Under
President Obama, the federal bud-
get deficit has been'more than cut
in half, from a FY2009 high of $1.55
trillion (largely inherited from
George W Bush) to an estimated
$642 billion this year, according to
the Congressional Budget Office.
However, a recent Bloomberg
News poll shows that only 10
percent of American voters are
acquainted with this indisputable
fact. Fifty-nine percent mistakenly
believe that the deficit has risen
under Obama. Another 26 percent
think it's remained approximately
the same. It's hard to run a democ-
racy given such widespread public
Militantignorance, much of
it. Fully 93 percent of tea party
members subscribe to the false
belief that government spending
is skyrocketing out of control. No
wonder they're running around
with their hair on fire.
But hold that thought, because
there's more: Measured as a pern
centage of the overall U.S. econo-
my, the, federal budget deficit has
shrunk from 10.1 percent in 2009
to 4 percent today. Given increased
revenue and decreased spending,
the CBO projects the figure will
decrease to 2.1 percent by 2015.
"By comparison," the May,2013
report notes, "the deficit averaged'
3.1 percent of GDP over the past
And for this we needed a govem-
And yes, I said decreased govern-
ment spending. Contrary to the,
myth of federal profligacy under
President Obama, total expendi-
tures for FY2013 and 2014 (which
began last Oct. 1) have actually
gone down for twcayears run-
ning, together with government
Overall, since 2009 government
spending has risen at an annual-
ized rate of only 1.4 percent, as
compared to 8.1 percent during
George W Bush's second term, 4.9
percent during Ronald Reagan's,
and 5.4 percent under George Bush
the Elder. Bill Clinton averaged 3.9
percent during his second term
(Incidentally, the CBO projects that
the Affordable Care Act -will also
contribute to shrinking the deficit,
albeit a modest $143 billion over 10
"In other words," writes econo-
mist Dean Baker of the Center for
Economic and Policy Research, "the
story of out-of-control debts and
deficits is just plain wrong. Less
polite people would call it a lie, but
it stands at the center of the public
debate because the media consider
it rude to point out a truth that
would embarrass so many impor-
"Duiring the Reagan presidency,'
spending averaged more than 22
'percent of GDP, peaking at 23.5
percent in 1985. This year it is
projected to be 21.6 percent of GDP.
The latest CBO projections show
spending rising back t6 Reagan-era'
levels towards the end of the 10-
year budget window."
Which isn't to say the United
States has no long-term fiscal prob-
lems. But ultimately, this is also
how the scary-sounding $17 trillion
national debt will be dealt with over
With the yearly deficit under
control, the size of the national
debt as a fraction of a growing GDR
becomes steadily less alarming. It's
never actually decreased from one
presidency to the next, you know.
Reagan tripled the debt in eight
years; Bush doubled it again. De-
spite the shrinking deficit, Qbama's
currently on track to double it
It's also true, however, that Presi-
dent Obama helped create his own
problems by talking about budget-
ary issues in personal, moral terms.
"Families across the country are
tightening their belts and making
tough decisions," he announced
during his 2010 State of the Union.
"The federal government should do

Call an exorcist? A culture coming out of denial
t was irresistible.
On Halloween, The Drudge
Report highlighted aWashing-
ton Post interview with the author
of "The Exorcist." William Peter
Blatty had used the word "demon-
ic," and now there atop Drudge was
a photo of Department of Health
and Human Services Secretary
It had been another week of the
Obama administration having
to answer for the political house
of horrors that has become of its
signature Obamacare law, the mis-
named Affordable Care Act
Blatty never called Sebelius
demonic. But he did reflect on the
American soul in ways deeper than
most political analyses. ever tend to,
deeper than many public prayers
Sebelius came into the interview
as Blatty talked with the reporter
about his decades-long concern
for the integrity of his alma mater,
Georgetown University, as a Catho-
lic institution. As religious leaders,
including U.S. Catholic bishops,
were protesting the White House
insistence that an HHS mandated
assault on conscience stand as
a new health care regulation,
Georgetown hosted Sebelius as a
commencement speaker in 2012.
But this runs deeper than a cabi-
net secretary, a political debacle,
or even one influential schooL If
people clicked on the Drudge link,
they were issued an invitation into
a contemplative life.
The Post piece notes that Blatty
wore "a silver medal etched with
the three crosses of Calvary, where
Jesus was crucified in the Gospels.
The medal belonged to his son Pe-
ter, who died seven years ago. One
reason 'The Exorcist' has endured,
Blatty thinks, is because it shows
that the grave does not mean
oblivion. That there is something
The Washington Post tells us
about Blatty's choice of sweetener
over lunch at the Georgetown-area
Tombs restaurant, along with his
mashing of meatballs, carving of
polenta, and his swirling "them to-
gether with blood-red sauce." And
yet there is a ceiling on details in
the piece. "He describes, his voice
trembling, a particular abortion
procedure in graphic detail," the
reporter writes. End of details.
Blatty tells me what he described
was a "late-term abortion proce-
dure plus the saline injection."
"I described late-term abortion
procedures in which the abor-
tionist plunges a surgical scissors
into the infant's skull,"' he says.
He talked about the brutality of
the late-term procedure, one
that LeRoy Carhart, a late-term
abortion provider with a clinic in
Maryland, has described in almost
sacramental terms. "I think out of
respect and love and honor for this
baby that you've lost, you will find
yourself being a betteK; person," he
recently told an undercover investi-
gator from Live Action.
In 1977, Melissa Ohden survived
a saline-infusion abortion. Her
teen mom was at seven months
gestation and Melissa survived, was
delivered alive and cared for as the
newborn she was by the doctors
and nurses present. Tqday, she
speaks about late-term abortion
in the most personal of terms. She
started a group, The Abortipn Sur-
vivors Network, for other women
who have survived abortions, as
babies who were supposed to be
"Most women who come in for
abortions, if they knew this, would
never go through with it," Blatty
believes. It's "demonic" to look
away, to not confront it and insist
on better, was his point.
Looking at my yellowed copy of
the 1971 novel, I am reminded of
the quotes with which Blatty chose
to open the book. First there was
Luke. Jesus approaches a man pos-:
sessed "byWa devil"
"Many times it had laid hold of
- him and he was bound with chains
t.. but he would break the bonds
"'Jesus asked him, saying, 'What is
thy name?' And he said, 'Legion.'"
"There is no greater gift, I believe,
that a woman can give, than a life
to a child," Ohden said. Melissa's
mother was pressured into an abor-
tion that should have killed Melissa
before she saw the light of day. "I
soaked in that toxic salt solution,"
Ohden described at a rally earlier
this year about the latter days of
her fetal life. This is a window into
hell. Want out? Acknowledge our
radical abortion politics as being a
debate about a right to dead babies
and we just might break the chains
of a grave ideology, as we work
together for something better.

The suspect's brother,
Kevin Shoop, told report-

a quiet suburban block in
Teaneck that his brother
was "a great person" who
was liked by friends and
family and gave no ad-

he intended to do.
"He just sadly decided
to make an act of an

said. "And it's a tragedy to
us all. And we're going to

Dod Geges, the owner
of a pizzeria in Teaneck

several years, said Shoop
didn't show violent ten-

shootings on TV.
Shoop left an ambiguous

GHS, Chipley try to end year on a high note,
BY DUSTIN KENT
After seeing their postseason dreams dashed
at home last week, the Graceville Tigers will
look to finish out the regular season on a high
note when they go on the road to take on the
Chjpley Tigers on Friday night at 7 p.m.
Graceville (4-5) and Chipley (6-3) both
come into the game on a sour note after
missing out on the posiseason, with the Ti-
gers getting eliminated from contention with
a 30-14 loss to Cottondale last week, and Chi-
pley falling out of the race when South Wal-
ton beat Bozeman to lock up the rurner-up
spot in District 3.
While neither team has the postseason to
look forward to, the rivalry aspect of the game
is real and coaches Tv Wise and Chip Harris
are surely hoping that will serve as motiva-
tion for their teams Friday.
"It's going to be a challenge (getting up for
the game)," the Graceville coach Wise said.
'I think 4oth teams in this scenario love
to compete against each other and this is a
game that gives one team bragging rights for
the rest of the yrear. I hope our players recog-
nize the value and importance of this football
game and put their best effort on the field Fri -
Graceville is coming off of a disappoint-
ing performance in the loss to Conondale,

the second half by outscoring GHS 14-0 after
The win clinched the runner-up spot in
District 2 for the Hornets, while the Tigers fell
to 1-3 in league play and finished third in the
"It was a tough loss," Wise said. "Obviously
it ended our postseason opportunities and
it was kind of indicative of how this season
has gone. We haven't been able to play an -
entire game. In every opportunity we've had
to better our chances for the postseason, we
haven't been able to finish a ballgame. Their

for this week's .eagerly,
I awaited visit to top-ranked
Alabama, the LSU running
back is spending consider-
able time reflecting on his
performance in' last year's
memorable clash and on
how disappointed he was
with himself afterward.. .
If LSU. hadn't lost a lead
in the final minute of a
21-17 setback, Hill might
have taken some pride in
the trouble he caused the.
Crimson Tide's normally
suffocating 2012 defense.
With 107 yards and a touch-
down, Hill was the first of
only two running backs all
of last season to rush for
100 yards against the na-
tional champs. (Georgia's
T6dd Gurley was the other
in the Southeastern Con-
ference title game).
Hill, however, has spent a
year dwelling on the yards
he failed to get yards
'which could have helped,
LSU run out the clock or at
least set up an easier field
goal than the 45-yarder
Drew Alleman missed with
1:34 to go.
"It haunts me all the
time," Hill said, pointing
specifically to a 3-yard loss
on a second-and-7 play
from the Alabama 29 with
*about 2:30 left.
The play design called for
Hill to cut back left, toward
the wide side of the field,
after taking the handoff.
Instead, he tried to bounce
outside to -his right and
was swarmed under. -
Looking back at video
of that play, Hill saw there
was probably room for a
modest gain where he was
supposed to run.
"If I had just gotten may-
be 4 or 5 (yards), it might
have changed the com-
plexion of the game," Hill
said. "I was trying to do
way too much..... You can't

Running game fueling No. 7 Auburnfs rise
The Associated Press
burn Tigers have plowed
their way into Southeast-
em Conference, and may-
be national title, conten-
tion with a running game
that has lately been mak-
ing the forward pass more
luxury than necessity.
The run-heavy formula
is working well so far for
the seventh-ranked Tigers,
who attempted nine pass'-
es against Arkansas and
still won 35-17.
"We just feel like we're a
big freight train and once
we get started, it's hard to
stop us," tailback Tre Ma-
son said Tuesday.
Mason and speedy quar-
terback Nick Marshall
have helped the Tigers (8-
1, 4-1 SEC) continue bar-
reling down the tracks with
a running game that leads
the league and ranks sixth
nationally, averaging 306
yards a game.

The meaning of responder's first-round bid in
today's deal is not known by some of my students.
I have, mentioned it a few times, but perhaps it is
forgotten because it comes up rarely.
After opener bids one of a major and the next
player makes a takeout double, a response of two
no-trump guarantees at least four-card support for
partner's suit and game-invitational or better values
(at most eight losers).
In borderline cases, this gives the opener space to
make a help-suit game-try at the three-level (which -
would be impossible after a three-heart limit raise
if the intervenor had passed). This use of two no-
trump also permits a jump raise to three hearts to
show four-card support and a weaker hand, which
responder hopes will effectively inconvenience the
opponents. Finally, if responder has a big balanced
hand, he starts.with a redouble.
Against four hearts, West leads the diamond
queen. How should South plan the play?
Declarer should see that he might lose one trick
in each suit. If he takes the first trick and plays a
trump, West wins with his ace and returns a dia-
mond, condemning South to defeat.
Instead, declarer should lead his club at trick two.
East wins and plays back a diamond, but South
wins, leads a spade to dummy's ace, and discards
his diamond loser on the high club. Now declarer
can start to draw trumps.

Smart leads All-America team Kentucky working
_______Lv/___ze_ to develop lineups
A lot of people were shocked when
Marcus Smart announced he would
return to Oklahoma State for his
sophomore season. Nobody should
be surprised the Cowboys point
guard was a unanimous selection to
The Associated Press' preseason All-
Smart was on every ballot from the
65-member national media panel
Monday, a no-brainer since he was
expected to be among the first play-
ers chosen if he had declared for the
NBA draft. The last unanimous pre-
season All-America was Ohio State's
Jared Sul]inger in 2011-12.
After averaging 15.4 points, 5.8 re-
bounds, 42 assists and 3.0 steals last
season in winning the Big 12 player of
year award,/it was how the Cowboys
fared in the NCAA tournament that
had a lot to do with his coming back.
"I felt like we had a lot more to ac-
complish," Smart said of the loss to
Oregon in Oklahoma State's open-
ing game of the NCAA tournament.
"We were a lot better team than that
That's just not the way we wanted to
go out. It helped me a little bit to get
motivated to come back this year."
Smart was joined on the preseason
All-America team by seniors Doug
McDermott of Creighton and Russ
Smith ofLouisville, sophomore Mitch
McGary of Michigan and freshman
Andrew Wiggins of Kansas.
The 6-foot-4 Smart, who also won
the Wayman Tisdale Award as the
country's top freshman, said he's
also coming back to improve on his
1.3-to-i assist-turmover ratio and his
40 percent shooting from the field,
including just 29 percent from 3-

The 6-foot Smith, who received 52
votes, averaged 18.7 points and 2.9
assists in helping the Cardinals win
the national championship. He won't
have the graduated Peyton Siva with
him in the backcourt but coach Rick
Pitino will still be caing the shots.
Wiggins, just the second freshman
to earn preseason honors since the
team was first selected for the 1986-
87 season, averaged 23.4 points and
11.2 rebounds as a senior at 'Hun-
tington (W.Va.) Prep School. He was
on 42 ballots.
McGary, who averaged 7.5 points
and 6.3 rebounds, caughtthe country's
attention during the Wolverines' run
to the NCAA title game when he aver-
aged 14.3 points and 10.7 rebounds.

The Asscate-d Press
tucky coach John Cali-
pari outdid even himself
with this year's recruiting
After luring some of the
nation's top prospects the
past several seasons to
Lexington, Calipari has
six high school All-Ameri-
cans in his latest eight-
player freshman, group.
Not since Michigan's "Fab
Five" rookie lineup in
1991-92 has so much prep
talent been assembled.
Now he is has to find
enough minutes to sat-
isfy the highly talented
Calipari is also going to
have to get them tosacri-
fice because there's prob-
ably not enough minutes
to satisfy everyone when
there's this many good
players on one roster.
These Kentucky fresh-
men are already being
mentioned as the best
freshman class ever. The
Wildcats are ranked No. 1
in the nation and are ex-
pected to, win Kentucky's
ninth national champi-
onship, perhaps even go
For them to live up to
all the lofty expectations,
Calipari will have to pull
off one of his greatest bal-
But as he seemingly
does every year about
this time, Calipari cau-
tions against expecting
too much too soon from
a group that won't play its
first official game togeth-
er until Friday's opener
"We've made strides.
Were not a good team right
now." Calipari insisted af-
ter Monday night's 95-72
exhibition victory over
Montevallo. "We've got a
nice collection of guys, but
we'renot a good team.'
Perhaps, but a few games
could reveal whether this

and was blown away," said

While the progress of
the young players and de-
velopment of the bench
will be key, the Lady Ti-
gers ultimately will go-
where their top players
lead them, specifically

a dominant senior cam-

A talented post player,

"They may have gone af-
ter each other at times, but
when itwas game time they
had each other's backs and
would look out for each
other just like brothers."
The coach said that one
of the things he was proud-
est of was how much of a
team effort the Eagles' suc-
cess was this season.
"I honestly couldn't pick
a team MVP," Bosland said.
"We had leading goal scor-
ers and assist leaders, and
when Bishop (Bosland) and
Gabe (Carver) were click-
ing, theywere unstoppable,
and when Cole (Payne) and
Jorrian (Weshley) got- go-
ing, they were really tough.
Amarion (Speights), Larry
(Williams), Syler (Griffen),
Kaleb (Clemmons), and
Grant (Williams) were
so solid all year for us on
defense and applied so
much pressure that it really
showed in our score differ-
ential for the year (88-20).
"This was a true -team.
Everybody contributed. If
someone was having an off
night, someone else picked
up their game and helped
us push through."
Bosland also praised the
Sharks team in their efforts
on the year.
"They had a good team,
played us well and we had
to be at our top leVel play
to do what we did," he
said. "They never backed

undefeated. They're a very

has a little ways to go, but
she's drastically improved

"She's arguably one of the
best female high school
players I've ever seen. She's
working on her game ev-
ery day. To get to Lakeland
she's going to have to carry
this team on her shoulders.
We'll have to wait and see
if she's up to the task, but

Things will be even
more difficult for GHS
against a talented and
athletic Chipley team that
has suffered close losses
this season to 4A Walton
and top-ranked IA team
Chipley also lost to
South Walton, with the
three Tiger losses this
year all poming to playoff
teams and by a combined
margin of 10 points.
"Chipley has a good
football team. They do
a number of things of-
fensively that give their
playmakers an oppor-
tunity to make, plays,
and defensively they do
a good job," Wise said.
"Obviously you can't help
but notice 'the athleti-
cism and the team speed
that they have, so we're
going to have to match
that speed and take ad-
vantage of every oppor-
tunity that we get."
shifting over to -the shoot-
ing guard position.
It will be a strong start-
ing group for the Lady Ti-
gers, but the lack of depth
means that there could be
less trapping and'pressing
and transition basketball
than Malone fans are used
"We'll be more of a half-'
court team. We'll still be
aggressive on defense,
but we'll build the offense
more around motion arid
sets," Roberts said. "We're
not going'to.get out and

when we go to the bench
we're not as; strong. We

If Graceville is to have
any chance to win, the
defense will have to find
a way to contain Chipley's
powerful and dynamic
running back Kobe Mc-
Crary,. who Wise saw
plenty of as an assistant
at Northview, with the
Chiefs and Tigers facing
off three times in the last
two seasons, including a
state semifinal game in
2011 when Chipley beat
"Obviously Kobe is a
real good football player
and thankfully this is his
last game," Wise joked.
"We'll work hard to, try
to slow him down and
the other backs that they
have and try to minimize
their big plays. I've been
facing (McCrary) since
he was a sophomore and
he's been a dominant

said is pretty much the bar
