Local teacher charged with



sex offense upon a minor


From staff report
An eighth grade teacher at Grand
Ridge School has been arrested on
a charge of lewd and lascivious bat-
tery upon a minor child between
the ages of 12 and 16.
Patrick Kyle McDaniel, 32,
was arrested at the close of the
school day on Thursday, Nov.
14. He was expected to make his
first court appearance on the
charge Friday.
In a press release about the mat-
ter, the Jackson County Sheriff's


Office reported that the Jack-
son County School Board had
provided information in recent
months concerning possible al-
legations of an inappropriate
relationship between a student and
a teacher in the school district. An
investigation was.launched as a re-
sult of those reports, with the probe
leading authorities to ,eventually
charge, McDaniel with the. alleged
offense.
Officials wrote in the press release
that the investigation "has revealed
that this inappropriate sexual con-


tact .began occurring .in July 2013.
The victim was McDaniel's former
student at Grand Ridge Middle
School; however, the allegations
of sexual misconduct did not ap-
pear to have occurred during the
time the victim was a student of
McDaniel's."
The investigation was a cdtop-
erative effort of the Jackson County
Sheriff's Office, the Florida Depart-
ment of Law Enforcement, the
Office of the State Attorney in
the 14th Judicial Circuit, and the
Jackson Counry School Board.

Tonya Chason sorts through some of the donated-supplies that'
will be used to provide a Thanksgiving dinner for the residents
of Chipola Apartments, an independent living apartment
complex for seniors.


Struggling elders


could use a hand


BY DEBORAH BUCKHALTER
dbudhliler-Pidr ioridar corrn
A few days ago, the new
resident services coordi-
nator/case manager *at
Chipola Apartments put
out a call for help in mak-
ing sure that all the seniors
who live at the non-profit
low-income housing com-
plex will have a nutritious
Thanksgiving meal.
On the job just three
weeks, Tonya Chason is
saddened by what she's
learning as she gets to
know the residents of the
independent lhing facility,
where the residents take
care of their own affairs,
with some moral support
and minor assistance from
the staff when needed.
Chason estimates that 70
percent of the residents are
in need in one way or an-
other. There are 50 units in
the complex. Some of the


people don't have adequate
furniture or appliances;
some sleep on their couch-
es because they don't have
a bed. Some don't have mi-
crowaves they could use to
heat meals. Others strug-
gle to provide themselves
enough food from month
to month, living as they
do on fixed incomes. Even
with the low rent they pay
on a sliding-scale basis,
many face real financial
challenges. It was a simple
parlor game that clued
Chason in on that reality.
The complex holds period-
ic Bingo sessions and gives
out prizes to the winners.
Many people in the apart-
ments have asked that she
provide prizes like garbage
bags, dishwashing liquid,
zippered storage bags, toi-
let tissue, paper towels and

Military chaplains back on front lines


It was in 1775 that General
George Washington authorized
chaplains in the Continental
Army. "Purity of Morals," he wrote,
three years later, provided the "only
sure foundation of public happi-
ness in any'Country" and thus was
"highly conducive to order, subor-
dination and success in an Army."
"Purity of Morals" might have
provided unity during the Ameri-
can Revolution, but chaplains face
more divisive issues decades after
the Sexual Revolution.
"No Catholic priest or deacon
may be forced by any authority
to witness or bless the union of
couples of the same gender," wrote
Archbishop for the Military Sei-
vices Timothy Broglio, in guidelines
released last month. "No Catholic
priest or deacon can be obliged to
assist at a 'Strong Bonds' or other
'Marriage Retreat,' if that gather-
ing is also open to couples of the
same gender. A priest who is asked
to 'counsel non-Catholic parties in"
a same-gendered relationship will
direct them to a chaplain who is
able to assist."
The archbishop's missive followed
a remarkably similar memorandum
from Southern Baptist Conven-
tion leaders, including former
U.S. Army Chief of Chaplains
Douglas Carver, retired two-star
general. It stressed~that Southern
Baptist chaplains must teach that
"all forms of seuail immorality,"
including adulter-', homosex-ual-
ity and pornography, are "equally
destructive to .healthy marital
relations."
However, the document's main
purpose was to offer guidance on,
issues emerging after Pentagon de-
cisions to embrace same-sex mar-
riage and to allow gays and lesbians
to openly serve in the armed forces.
Southern Baptist chaplains,
stressed the guidelines, could not
"conduct or attend" same-sex
union rites or join in counseling
sessions or retreats that "give the

appearance of accepting L. sexual
wrongdoing." The document also
drew a stark line between the.
work of SBC chaplains and those
representing liberal traditions, say-
ing they should not lead worship
services with any clergyperson who
"personally practices or affirms
a homosexual lifestyle or such
conduct."
While ,orie Army manual says
chaplains -are not obligated to per-
form duties "contrary to their faith
traditions, tenets and beliefs," other
regulations stress that all chaplains
must be willing to provide "reli-
gious support" for all personnel in
their care.
The "Chaplain Activities in the
United States Army" volume notes,
for example, that while chaplains
"remain fully accountable to the
code of ethics and ecclesiastical
standards of their endorsing faith
group" this does not relieve them
from their duty to provide "ad-
equate religious support to accom-.
plish the mission."
Thus, it's significant thatArmy
materials promoting the chap-
lain-led "Strong Bonds"' program
indicate that its mission is to help
all soldiers singles, unmarried
couples and families -thrive in
the "turbulence of the military
environment."
It will be impossible for doctrin-
ally conservative clergy to avoid
same-gender couples and families
in that context. Thus, it's time for
some chaplains to quit, according
to a manifesto from the Nilitarv
Association of Atheists and Free-


thinkers entitled, "Didn't Southern
Baptists Just Resign as Military
Chaplains?"
"The SBC policy is encouraging
because it is an honest represen-
tation of the previous unwritten
anti-gay stance of the SBC ... but is
discouraging in that it does not take
full responsibility and resign ex-
plicitly from a military-chaplaincy
they clearly do not wish to partake
in," said the MilitaryAtheists.org
analysis..
"The policy as written may
potentially be copied by other
endorsing agencies who share the
same view of scripture. If other.
agencies follow suit, potentially 50
percent of military chaplains may
be affected." i
'Clearly, the nation's two largest.
churches do play crucial roles in
the chaplaincy program. A mere
234 priests serve the 25 percent
of all military personnel who are.
Catholics. The Southern Baptist
Convention has more than 1,500
approved chaplains, more than any
other faith group.
America's military leaders will
have to decide if doctrinally con-
servative chaplains will be allowed
tb honor their religious vows or not,
said the Rev. Russell Moore, leader
of the SBC's Ethics & Religious
Liberty Commission, in a forum
last week..
The current trend, he said, is to
view chaplains as "carriers of the
American civil religion, in a way ,
that seeks to counsel and to do
some religious duties but'not to'
actually be Roman Catholics or
Evangelicals or Latter-day Saints
or Muslims or what have you. I.
think that is troubling.... I believe
in religious pluralism in the public
square where everyone comes as he
or she is into the public square for
more dialogue and not less."

Pope shuns presidential escort for state visit


The Associated Press

ROME Pope Francis
shunned a presidential
guard 'escort for his first
state-visit to the Italian
president Thursday in yet
another breach of pro-
tocol and security, even
though some people have
expressed concerns for his
safety as he ramps up his
reform of the Vatican.
Francis' simple blue Ford,
Focus and the small Vati-
can motorcade pulled up
quietly to the Quirinale
Palace without the blar-
ing of sirens that typically
accompanies politicians
and foreign dignitaries

Possible sinkhole reported in yard in Florida


The Associated Press
DUNEDIN Residents
of several Florida homes
have been evacuated due
to a possible sinkhole
that opened in a back-
yard in Pinellas County on
Thursday.
Dunedin Deputy Fire
Chief Trip Barrs said the
hole appeared to be about
12 feet wide when officials
arrived on the scene. Resi-
dents of the neighboring
houses also were evacu-
ated-as a precaution.
The Tampa Bay Times re-
ports that the ground is so
unstable that two homes
must be demolished.
Television footage

'1.*


A man observes a sinkhole has swallowed parts of two houses
in Dunedin, Fla., on Thursday, Nov. 14.


showed part of a patio
caved in and a boat on the
edge of the hole. Tanipa
area television stations


reported that a neighbor-
ing pool appears to have
cracks.
The affected neighbor-


hood is in Dunedin, a small
city in northern Pinellas
County, about 20 miles
north of St. Petersburg.
Sinkholes are common in
Florida because the penin-
sula is made up of porous
carbonate rocks such as
limestone that store and
help move water under-
ground. Over time, the
rocks can dissolve from an
acid created from oxygen
in water, causing a void
under the limestone roof.
When dirt, clay or sand
gets ,oo heavy for the lime-
stone roof, it can collapse,
creating a sinkhole.
On Feb. 28, Jeffrey Bush
died when a sinkhole
opened under his bed-


room in Seffner, Fla., near
Tampa. -His body was nev-
er recovered:. In August,
sections of a building at a
resort near Orlando col-
lapsed into a sinkhole. No
one was injured.
HomeownerMichaelDu-
pre said the family heard a
noise that sounded like a
sledgehammer pounding
on the wall early Thursday
morning.
Dupre told Bay News 9
there had been "sinkhole
activity" in the area. 'After
the Seffner sinkhole, we
were scared. We've been
dealing with our insur-
ance company and finally
two days ago, they started
working on our house.


Now it looks like our house
is gone."
As the hole grew, it swal-
lowed the Dupre's porch
and new boat. Now, his
neighbor's swimming pool
and a portion of that home
have fallen in as well.
Engineers were called in
to assess the homes and
ultimately decided both
Dupre's, home and his
neighbor's would be com-
plete losses.
A backhoe was used to
pull Dupre's boat from the
hole. Crews had feared fuel
in the boat could leak into
groundwater. Otherwise,
the rescue crews are in a?
holding pattern until the
hole stabilizes.

Vets program has hired, trained 380K


The Associated Press

LAK BUENA VISTA -
First lady Michelle Obama
said Thursday that com-
panies participating in a
program.to help veterans
find employment have. ex-
ceeded their initial goal by
training or. hiring 380,000
veterans' and military
spouses.
Obama made the an-
nouncement during a
speech at a daylong Walt
Disney World forum
aimed- at getting oppor-
tunities and developing
programs for bring-
ing ex-soldiers into 'the
workforce.
Earlier this year, Obama
announced that the'Join-
ing Forces; program she
started along with Jill


First lady Michelle Obama
(center) gives the keynote
address to attendees of Dis-
ney's Veterans Institute jobs
forum on Thursday in' Lake
Buena Vista, Fla.
Biden more than two years
ago had hired 290,000 vet-
erans and spouses. This


latest new hiring number
is nearly four times the
-original goal the program
wanted to reach by the
end of 2013.
Flanked by a stage full
of Disney employees that
are former military vet-
erans, Obama spoke to a
packed ballroom of 500
people, representing 350
employers.
"There's a reason you're
here today and -it's not
just because hiring veter-
ans is, the patriotic thing
to do," she said. "You're
here because hiring vet-
erans is the smart thing to'
*do for your businesses."
Thursday's, fofum was
a free event aimed at in-
spiring employers to hire
servicemen and women
looking for work in the


private sector. The job-
less rate for veterans who
served after the Sept. 11
terrorist attacks fell from
12.1 percent in 2011 to 9.9
percent in 2Q12. -
Disney has exceeded a
commitment it made last
year to hire more than
1,000 veterans by 2015,
and in March pledged
to create opportunities
for another 1,000 service
members over the next
two years.
"I've come to learnhiring
people with military back-
grounds isn't just a right
thing to do. it's the smart
thing to do," said Disney
chairman and CEO'Robert
Iger. "It's inspiring to see
so many em ployers here
todav' who understand
that.";`

TrheAc';ijtedFresi.


NI[AMI Rescue crews
searched an area south-
east of Miami on Thurs-
day after a pilot reported
to the Federal Aviation
Administration that a pas-
senger fell out of his small
plane inio the ocean.

water units were search-
ing an area about 8 miles:

mayda., mayday," and
told an air traffic control-
ler a door was ajar.'
"J have a door ajar and a
passenger that fell down.
I'm 6 miles from Tamiami,"
the pilot says.
"You said you've got a
passenger that fell out of
your plane?" die air traffic


controller responds.
"That's correct, sir,"
the pilot responded. "He
opened the back door and
he just fell out the plane."
LiteATC.Net provides
live air traffic control
broadcasts from control
towers and radar facilities

The Coast Guard and
fire rescue officials said

l confirmed that the
pilot's emergency call was
legitimate. The Miami-
Dade Police Department
sent detectives to the air-
pour to further investigate.
-said. spokesman Javier
Baez.
'"We're still gathering as


many' facts as we can,"
Baez said.
The Coast 'Guard said
it had a small boat and a
helicopter involved in the
search. The fire rescue
agency had three marine
units and two aircraft. said
Lt. Arnold Piedrahita, a
fire rescue spokesman.
According to an email
from FAA spokeswoman
'Bergen, the pilot radioed
air traffic controllers at

Ending tax breaks eyed



as way to ease budget cuts


The Associated Press
WASHINGTON Dem-
ocrats' new mantra in
.budget talks is to close tax
loopholes for certain busi-
nesses, investors and pro-
fessionals as a way to raise
more revenue to help ease
autopilot spending cuts
that soon are to become
more painful.
On their list: Deductions
for corporations that pay

tions instead of salaries,
reduced tax rates for

and private equity advis-
ers, avenues

tors, law- C
years, con-
sultants and
others who

avoid Medicare taxes.
Democratic budget ne-
gotiators in Congress see
cutting these and other
tax breaks as a politically
popular way to raise rev-.
enues and ease spending
cuts without further swell-
ing the deficit. Republi-
cans say they are open to
ending some special tax
breaks, but they insist the
new revenue be used to
lower tax rates, 'not to in-
crease spending.
The dispute played out
this week as the negotia-
tors tasked with merging,
competing budgets writ-
ten by House Republicans
and Senate Democrats met
for only the second time Ui
public.
"You can't raise taxes
high 'enough to satisfy the
appetite of Washington
to spend money," Sen.
Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa,
said. "Closing loopholes


are very legitimate. The
tax code is a mess, but
closing tax loopholes to
spend more is not going
to have long-range good
results because -you
get the higher level of
expenditure."
The disagreement could
.doom prospects for avert-
ing a second round of
automatic spending cuts
in January. Those nego-
tiators already have pretty
much given up hope of
reaching a longer-term
budget accord for reduc-
ing deficits years into the
future.
,D e m o
-crats are
ase circulating a

beled "egre-
spe gious loop
holes that
,huck Grassley, Republicans
Sriitor PIcowa should ei-
ther bring to
the negoti-
ating table or explain to the
American people why they
can't find a single loophole
to close to get a bipartisan
deal."
The list reads more Like
talldng points than sub-
stantive proposals. The
White House previously
has endorsed some of the
ideas, but absent better
prospects'for a new lon-
ger-term deal for reducing
deficits, they've remained
on the shelf.
Sen. Patty Murray,

Budget Committee chair-

Hungry Bulldogs hoping for more
c^ *' ,: "p .9 *,.m ore -* ^


BY DUSTIN KENT
dib'ent'.j')l'Ind3ri c'm

The 2012-13 season was some-
thing of a rollercoaster ride for
the Marianna Bulldogs.
MHS started the year 5-1 and
was 9-4 heading into the Christ-
mas break, but a 6-7 finish to
the year that included a crush-
ing road loss to archrival Malone
and a district semifinal loss to
Walton that ended their season
left the Bulldogs with a sour taste
to take into the offseason.
But with the core of that team
almost fully intact for this sea-
son. the Bulldogs will have
the talent and certainly the
motivation to make this %ear


a redemptive one.
"You hope that the expecta-
tions for them are even higher
now that they're a year older, a
year more mature, and a year
more experienced and sea-
soned," Marianna coach Travis
Blanton said. "They want to get
everybody back that got us. We
took some serious beatings by
some people that hopefully of-
fended the kids to take it per-
sonal to the point of us doing
something about it this year. I
don't know how much that will
help, but as far as the mental at-
tiude, I hope that is what it did
to them."
The Bulldogs lost four seniors
from last year's group, but they


return four of their top five
scorers, including the top two
in junior point guard Shaquari-
ous Baker and sophomore wing
player Herman Williams, who
averaged 10.7 and 10.5 points'
respectively.
MHS also returns 6-foot-5 post
player Trey Clemons, who aver-
aged 7.4 points and 5.5 rebounds
per game as a freshman and will
look to team with Williams to
give the Bulldogs a dynamic in-
side-out sophomore duo this
season.
The talent is there for each to
have breakout seasons in 2013-
14, though Blanton said he's not

Hornets face familiar role as underdogs


BY DUSTIN KENT
dkent@jcfloridan.cpm


As the Conondale Hornets head to
Baker tonight to open the first round
of the IA playoffs against the 1O-OGa-
tors, they find themselves in a very fa-
miliar position.
Few people are giving the Hornets
much of chance to pull the upset to-
night over the undefeated Gators, but
perhaps even fewer gave them a shot
to make the playoffs in the first place
after losing their top passer, rusher. re-
ceiver, and tackler from a season ago.
But Cottondale surpassed all expec-
t ationi going into the year by finishing
6-4 overall and 3-1 in District 2 to earn
the runner-up spot behind league
champion Vernon.
Despite their success, the Hornets
still go into tonight's game viewed by

most as the underdog, which Corton-
dale coach Mike Nlelvin said was just
fine with him.
"That's how we've been practicing,
like we've got nothing to lose," he said
Thursday. "Nobody really e-pected us
to be here and everyone is predicting
us to lose, but we're going out there to
win and keep playing football. If you
-don't want to have to put your pads
up, you better win."
The challenge will be difficult
against a very solid Baker team that

four losses.
The Gators are led by running back-"
D.J. Thomas, who has gained'over
2,000 yards on the ground this year to
go with 27 touchdowns.
NMelvin compared Thomas to his
own star running back, senior Norris
Calhoun, who has gained more than
1,300 yards himself this season. .
"They're a lot alike. They're built a
lot alike and they run a lot alike," the
coach said. "He's running back and

The Marianna High School soccer teams
picked up a pair of wins over Baker at Bull-
dog Stadium on Tuesday night, with the
girls winning 2-0 and the boys handing
out a 3-0 shutout.
In Lady Bulldog action, the two teams
played great defense the first half,'-with
neither team being able to get past the
goalkeeper.
Marianna broke the scoreless tie with a
goal by Taniyah Robinson on an assist by
:,Reagan Oliver to put the Lady Bulldogs up
1-0. .
It wasn't long before a penalty kick by
Oliver made it a 2-0 game.
Valerie Sims recorded eight saves, and
the defense successfully defended three
corner kicks by Baker.'
Marianna took five comer kicks and had
12 shots on goal on the night.
Second-year Bulldogs coach Scott Wig-
gins said he was very happy with his teams
effort to start the year.

SEC teams try to salvage hopes, make bowl


The Associated Press

MONTGOMERY The
Florida Gators haven't sat
out the postseason in near-
ly a quarter century. The
Vanderbilt Commodores,
who had been to four bowl
games in 120 years before
James Franklin's arrival,
have a good shot at mak-
ing it three in a row;
Plenty of other South-
eastern Conference teams
are also jockeying for
postseason eligibility or
trying .to spruce up their
bowl resumes 'for more
prestigious, better-paying
games in the season's final
weeks.
Making a bowl .means
more-money, practice time
and exposure to recruits.
Of course, the SEC can
fill its coffers even more if
a team is playing for the
league's eighth consecu-
tive national title.
The bowl scramble
goes 'well. beyond the
BCS championship game,
hopes of No. 1' Alabama
and perhaps No. 7 Au-
burn. No. 9 Missouri, No.
10 Texas A&M'and No. 11
South Carolina all have
hopes of making a BCS
game and/or playing for,
the SEC title.
Eight teams are already
eligible for the SEC's 10
guaranteed bowl slots, and

The injury-plagued
Gators (475) are trying
not to let the heat get to

snap at a time," Florida
center Ion Harrison said.
"If we focus on things too
far in the future, we lose
sight of the task at hand.


We're trying to work on
.Florida and eliminating
the self-inflicted wounds
that Florida has been suf-
fering from."
Vanderbilt's 34-17 vic-
tory over the Gators
changed the bowl 'situa-
tion'significantly for both
teams. The Commodores
are 5-4 and need only one
more win against a favor-
able ending schedule:
Kentucky (2-7), Tennes-.
,see (4-6) and Wake Forest
(4-6). *
Frankin, who led Vandy
to its first bowl game since
1982 in his debut season,


isn't interested in looking
beyond going 1-0 each
Saturday.
"From an outside per-
spective, talking to the
media or things like that,
we do bring up some of the
historical', things because
we're still trying to change
people's perception about
Vanderbilt 'football and
wharwe'vebeen and where
we're going," he said.
"We'll talk about it a little
bit..
"!pternally and with our
program, we've been pret-
ty consistent with our 1-0
message."


The bowl scramble is
a nice issue for the SEC,
which didn't fill the 10th
bowl spot in Shreveport,
La.,'last season.
Vanderbilt has the in-
side track among the four
teams trying to get to six
wins and bowl eligibil-
ity., Tennessee, Florida'
and Mississippi State (4-
5) all still need ,wo more
wins.
The Volunteers must
beat Vanderbilt and Ken-
tucky after an open date
after failing to make a bowl
the past two seasons.
Ending that drought,
*says safety Brian Ran-
dolph is "definitely our No.
1 focus."
"It's all we've been think-
ing about," Randolph said.
Guard Zach Fulton said
Tennessee players met to
stress the importance and.
benefits of getting to the
postseason..'

the bonding and. having'
extra practices is great,"
Fulton said.
The money's not bad. ei-
ther, for the programs.
For teams like Nlissis-
sippi and No. 25 Georgia,
upgrading their bowl des-
tination can mean a much


higher payday. Among the
non-8CS games, the pay-
out can range from $1.925
million for the BBVA Com-
pass Bowl in Birmingham
to $8.5 million for Orlan-
do's Capital One Bowl,
which gets first dibs on
teams who aren't in the
BCS.
The SEC champion will
go to either the Sugar Bowl
or the .BCS title game in
Pasadena, Calif. ,
Schools get anywhere
from $1.175 million to
-$1.875 million for bowls
outside the championship
game plus a travel allow-
ance. The rest of the pie is
diwiedl5 ways, with'one
slice for each member and
one f6r the SEC.
"Certainly to move a sec-
ond team up into the BCS
structure, there's a signifi-
cant payout for that as far
as additional revenues are
concerned," said Mark
Womack, the SEC's execu-
tive associate commis-
sioner and CEO.
* The league is .hoping-it
has the problem of trying
to fid' 'a bowl site else-
where if it~has morethan
nine eligible teams beyond
the BCS.
"We have teams that be-
come very attractive teams
to those bowls," Womack
said.
Now, the challenge is
getting to them.

ready to anoint either as a star just
yet.
"I think they've got a chance to be nice
players with how hard they work at it
and how serious they take it, but for me
it's all about performance and not po-
tential," the coach said. "I don't want to
count any chickens before they hatch.
They're still young and they're going to
play like sophomores on certain nights.
I hope with Shaquarious being expe-
rienced and Roderick (Copeland) and
Tommy (White) and those older guys
that they'll be able to 'carry some of the
load so the younger guys don't feel the
need to try to be the guy every night. We
need to be unselfish and share the ball
and work together."
Williams and Clemons'may be the
most gifted individual players for Mari-
anna, but it's Baker .who is the backbone.
of the team and the player who Blanton
said will need to lead the way if the Bull-
dogs are going to get where they want to
be. . .
"The kid is one of the best point,
guards I've ever, coached. He's a win-
ner, a competitor, a leader, and, a coach
on the floor," he said. "He understands
the game, how he's supposed to play it
and. how we want him to play it. The kid
is just a competitor and a winner. He's
willing to do whatever it takes to help
this team win."
The 6-foot-2 Copeland returns after
averaging five points and five rebounds
as a junior, while junior guard Jamel
Johnson will be stepping into a larger
role this year after serving as the team's
most reliable reserve last season.
Speedy senior guard' Tommy' White
will give the Bulldogs depth in 'the
backcourt, .and 6-foot-5 junior center
Antavious Leonard gives Marianna an-
other long and athletic big man on the
interior.


The Bulldogs could also get help from
some young newcomers such as fresh-
man guards Anton Williams and Jaeden
Harley, as well as junior varsity players
Brandon Smith and Clifford Scott.
But for both veterans and newcom-.
ers, the goals for the season remain the
same as ever, according to Blanton.
"It's ldnd of like it's always been. We
want to win some district games, get to
the district championship if possible,
hopefully make theoplayoffs and then
take them one at a time," he said. "But
just winning a game in the district tour-
nament is going to be tough enough.
We'll take them one at a time and hope-
fully _be able to meet our goals as they
come to us.
"Last year was not a very good show-
ing in district, so I hope they come out
with a little chip on their shoulder with
something to prove day in and day out.
Losing to Walton was very disappoint-
ing to these kids, so' maybe; we'll play
with more hunger and desire next time.
I think the kids are pretty confident, but
they've got to come to work humble ev-
ery day because no one is going to hand
it to you."
Competition in District I will again
be fierce, with an improved Walton and
perhaps the most talented Pensacola,
Catholic team in recent years joined by
league newbie West Florida.
Beyond the district, 4A powers such as
East Gadsden, Florida High and Godby
await, leaving the Bulldogs with some
heavy hitters to get through if they're to
make.amrunat the playoffs..
"That's going to.be tough; 4A is sup-
posed to be one of the toughest (classes)
this year," the coach said, "It's a tough
gig. If we can get out of district, that's
the first goal. We want to get out of dis-
trict and take them one at a ti me. I know
the. competition is going to be tough,
but I hope that our kids will embrace,
that challenge."
Marianna will open the regular season
Tuesday at home against Cottondale.

Annie's Mailbox


Dear Annie; My wife and ILhaye been
married for 30 years. When our oldest
son left for college, my wife began using
his bedroom for storage. It gradually
filled with clothes, papers and things my
wife bought from TV'shopping shows.
Soon, there was barely a path to the bed.
It happened again when our second
child left. Now both bedrooms are
jam med so full that you can barely open
the doors. Our attic is overflowing, and
we rent two storage spaces.
Ny wife is now stacking stuff in.our
bedrQom. I cannot get her to sort
through things. She says she Will do it

Bridge
Victor Mobo wrote humorous stories featuring
his "menagerie" of bridge players. When he died
.in 1987, everyone assumed that would be that.
However, many unpublished, articles have been
found among his papers. These are being put
into four books. "The Hog Takes to Precision"
came out in 20J11, "Diamonds Are the Hog's Best
Friend" appeared this year, and stay tuned for
the other two. All are published by Master Point
.Press.
the Rueful Rabbit is a poor player who always
lands on his feet. This deal is a typical example.
North has a problem over two no-trump. He
might pass; or he could respond three clubs,
Stayman, planning on either bidding four hearts
if a 4-4 fit is disclosed, or settling for three no-
,trump and hoping the diamonds run.
In this auction, North-South had agreed to use
transfer bids, but North forgot. So he assumed
South's three-heart rebid indicated length in
that suit.
Against four hearts, West led the spade king
(luckily not a trump). The Rueful Rabbit ruffed
in the dummy, played a diamondito his ace,
trumped another spade, returned to the dia-
mond king, ruffed a third spade, and took two
club tricks ending on the board.
After a brief pause, R.R. trumped a diamond
with his heart jack. West had to discard a spade.
Then a fourth spade ruff was followed by
another diamond. With this coup en passant,
East could not stop South from scoring his heart
king. Four hearts bid and made!
If you have never read any of these stories,
start with the original book, "Bridge in the
Menagerie."


am considering tossing stuff myself the
next time she takes a trip to visit one of
our children. If I throw away the junk,
how will she react? I cannot live like this.
-DROWNING IN JUNK

Dear Drowning: Your wife is a hoarder.
It's possible this was kicked into high
gear by tlke stress of her children leaving
the nest, tbut if it is getting progressivelyr'
worse;, she needs to seek treatment. How-
ever;.un.less she agrees to it beforehand,
we don't recommend you toss things
out while she is away. Instead, call your,
doctor and ask for a referral to a mental
health specialist. lou also can contact the
International OCD Foundation (ocfoun-
dation.org) for more information.

Spoelstra seeks aid for Philippines


The Associated Press

MIAMI With a bit of
his mother's native lan-
guage thrown in at the end,
Miami Heat coach Erik
Spoelstra released a public
service announcement on
Wednesday asking people
to give to UNICEF and help
with typhoon relief efforts
in the Philippines.
Spoelstra's mother is from
the Philippines, which
was devastated last Friday
when Typhoon Hai)an
struck- killing thousands,
displacing hundreds of
thousands and leaving
enormous numbers of
Filipinos homeless, hun-
gry and thirsty Spoelstra
filmed the spot on- Mon-
day, arid production was
turned around in less than
48 hours.
"Just helping right now
has its own challenges,"
Spoeklsra said Wednesday
night. "There's a long road
ahead.... I feel a responsi-
bility to help make people
aware of how catastrophic-,
this storm was to Filipinos
in that region, but more
importandy how people
can assist with the relief.

The NBA, the NBA Players
Association and the Heat
are among the groups who
have already announced
donations to relief efforts.
The Heat combined with


Carnival Corporation to
pledge at least $1 million to
the effort; the team is owned
by Mickey Arison, who also
chairs Carnival's board.
In addition, the Heat
held a moment of silence
f6r those lost and affect-
ed by the storm before
their game Tuesday night
against the Milwaukee'
Bucks.
"South Floridians, we
can relate to storms where
you just brace and hold
your breath and even
when you're holding your
breath you know the worst
is coming." Spoelstra said.
"That's how it felt with:
this. My family is fine. But
some regions have just
been slammed. They're
going to need a lot of help.
As soon as we started get-
ting more updates, it was a
no-brainer to get involved
with UNICEF and the NBA."
Nlick, the Heat have been
phenomenal."
Spoelstra has often spo-
ken of the pride he takes'
in his Filipino-American-
heritage, and when he was
approached to help with
relief efforts, he did not
hesitate to commit.


Pacers relying on selflessness during perfect run


The Associated PreSs

INDIANAPOLIS -When
Paul George looked up at
the scoreboard Monday
night and realized Lance
Stephenson was closing in
on a triple-double, he got
right to work.
As George went on an-
other scoring binge to help
the Pacers pull away from
Memphis, he wanted Ste-
phenson to share the spot-
light. So George quickly
made a 20-foot jumper
with 10:56 left in the game,
giving Stephenson his 10th
assist, then jogged over to
his teammate and gave
him a low-five.
It's hardly an unprec-
edented sight around
the NBA, but in a league
that 'has been built on big
names, individual num-
bers and 1-on-i matchups,
George's reaction was em-
blematic of what the Pac-
ers have become a team
that celebrates everyone's
accomplishments.,
"I think it's different from
most of the teams I've been
around, other than the last
two or three years," said
coach Frank Vogel,,who
has spent 17 seasons work-
ing in the NBA. "I think this,
is, the most selfless team
I've been part of." -

George said Wednesday
following a rare early sea-
son practice. "I think we
always 'wanted to pull for
one another before, but we
didn't know how to do it. As
the years went on and our
core stayed together, it's
helped. Now, when guys
come in, they understand
how dght we are and how
they will fit in."'.
It's no fluke.
When Larry Bird started
transforming the Pacers
from playoff outsiders into
tide hopefuls, he wanted
,to build around a grouP
of players who worked
relentlessly at improving.
He wanted guys who were
comfortable filling roles
and who could embrace a
style that would appeal to
Indiana's purist basketball
fans. Most of all, he want-
ed guys who were simply
committed to doing what-
ever it took to win.


Barnes apologizes for

ejection and tweet


The Associated Press


LOS ANGELES Mart
Barnes is apologizing to
his Los Ahgeles Clippers
teammates and coaches
for getting ejected and
then sending out a pro-
fane tweet.
Barnes, along with
Oklahoma City's Serge
Ibaka, got ejected and
Blake Griffin of the Clip-
pers received a techni-
cal foul for their parts in
a scuffle with 6 seconds
left in the second quarter
of their game Wednesday
night.
Griffin was trying to put
the ball up and his arms
and Ibaka's became en-
tangled. Barnes shoved
Ibaka hard in the chest.
Griffin kept trying to get
at Ibaka as players from
both teams formed a
scrum.
After his ejection,
Barnes used a deroga-
tory term in a profane
tweet that began "I love.,
my teammates ike
family." but went on to
suggest he was tired of
backing them up be-
cause his actions "cost
me money"


"I was completely
wrong for pushing Ibaka
& then for what I tweeted
followingthealtercation,"
Barnes posted Thurtday
on his verified Twitter ac-
count. "Niy poor choice
of words & timing do not
reflect who or what I am
about.
"It was very selfish on
my part to make this sit-
uation about me instead
of my teammates that
fought their hears out &
earned a big win against
a tough okc team."
Barnes tweeted that he
"could have took the easy
way out" and claimed
that his Twitter account
was hacked.
"But that's not what
I'm about, I accept' full
responsibility for all my
inappropriate action last
night & I am truly sorry!"
