County employees may be forced to work disasters.


BY DEBORAH BUCKHALTER
dbuckhalter@jcfloridan.com
Under a new employ-
ment policy being consid-
ered by the Jackson County
Commission, local govern-
ment employees may be
obligated to work disas-
ters in situations where
weather 'events or other
crises shut down the. of-
fices where they normally
work.
Instead of them being
,sent home and collect-
ing their regular pay dur-


ihg those shutdowns, the
county may require them
to help out in the disaster
that shut down their offic-
es. n the case of a storm,
for instance, they might
help conduct damage as-
sessments, man informa-
tioni lines in the emergency
operations center and par-
ticipate in shelter intake as
people take refuge there.
Commissioners were
presented a proposed
policy change on the mat-
ter Tuesday, but tabled a


decision while more infor-
mation is gathered and the
policy is tweaked. Jackson
County Emergency Man-
agement Director Rodney
Andresen had brought the
document to the board,
and will be involved in a
revision of the police be-
fore it is brought back to
the board.
Every county employee,
unless specifically exempt-
ed on a case-by-case basis,
See WORK, Page 7A


Jackson County Emergency
Management Director Rodney
Andreasen talks to county
commissioners about a new
policy he wants them to
adopt which would require
county employees to work
disasters in the event that
their offices are temporarily
shut down because of a given
emergency.

Marianna police


issue scam alert


Staff report

The Marianna Police De-
partment is warning citi-
zens of a postal scam that
was recently tried on a lo-
cal resident. -
On Tuesday, Nov. 19,
MPD says an alert citizen
asked the department to
warn the public about a
scam attempt made upon
him by way of the postal
service. The unnamed
Marianna resident re-
ceived a letter and an en-
closed check from "THE
NATIONAL LOTTERY,"
which claims to have of-
fices in England, the Unit-
ed States, the United Arab
Emirates and Sweden.
,The letter asks the. po-
tential victim to cash the
check at their bank* and
send the money back in
two payments for "tax and
processing" via Western
Union or MoneyGram. The
location to send the mon-
ey to is given to, the victim
once they have cashed the
check. The letter asks the
victim to calaphonenum-
ber to receive the'location
to send broth payments.
The promise (or hook) to
entice the victim is that
once the victim sends both
payments totaling $2,920
to the scammer, they are
promised another check
for $150,000.
According to an MPD
press release, the scammer


hopes that out of every 100
letters sent out, someone
will take the bait within
the first few days it takes
for the check to clear
the victim's bank and
be identified as a forg-
ery. The scammer makes
$2,920 for very little effort
and the victim is left in
a state of depression, ow-
ing their bank $2,920, MPD
says.
A web search using the
term "The National Lot-
tery Letter" immediately
displays results indicating
that there is a continuing
scam going on and warns
all persons 'to beware.
The postal routing, on the
envelope shows, that the
scam letter came from or
through Canada. Police
say the alert citizen was
on his toes though, and
realized the letter was too
good to be true and was a
scam.
The department ex-
pressed" high praise for
alert citizens who.. accept
their civil responsibil-.
ity and watch o.u for the
wellbeing of their fellow
man in reporting such
scams. If you believe you
have been the target of a
scam in any form face
to face, by phone, postal
service or the Internet
- call MPD at 526-3125
so word can .spread and
possibly prevent future

Congressman Radel pleads guilty to cocaine charge


The Associated Press

WASHINGTON Flor-
ida Republican Rep. Hen-
ry "Trey" Radel pleaded
guilty Wednesday to a
misdemeanor charge of
cocaine possession and
was sentenced to a year's
probation.
"I've hit a bottom where I
realize I need help," Radel
told a judge in acknowl-
edging that he purchased
3.5 grams of cocaine from
an undercover police
officer.
As part of a plea agree-
ment Radel acknowledged
he agreed to buy the co-
caine for $250 in a Wash-
ington, D.C., neighbor-
hood on Oct. 29. After the
undercover :officer -gave
Radel. the drugs federal
agents 'confronted him,
court documents show.
Radel agreed to talk with
the agents and invited
them to his apartment,
where he also retrieved a
vial of. cocaine he had in
the home, the documents
said.
The charges against
Radel were made public
Tuesday, and Radel said

The documents said that
Radel* purchased co-

occasions.
Radel's lawyer, David
Schertler, said in court
that his client had already
entered outpatient treat-
ment in Washington and
would also seek treatment
in Florida. He said his cli-
ent see's the charge as an
opportunity to seek help
for a problem.
If Radel successfully
completes his year of pro-
bation the charge against
him will be dismissed and
he can apply to have his
record expunged.
"I know I have a prob-
lem and will do whatever
is necessary to overcome
it, hopefully setting an
-example for others strug-
gling, with 'this disease,"
Radel said in his statement
Tuesday.
Karl Colder, special agent
in charge of the DENs
Washington field office,
said Radel was given no
special treatment in avoid-
ing arrest at the scene. He
said authorities do not
automatically arrest drug
buyers in undercover op-


erations, especially if they
are part of a larger investi-
gation, agree to cooperate
and don't pose a threat to
the public. Radel provided
information to investiga-
tors at the time of the bust
and has continued meet-
ing with them since, Cold-
er said in an interview with
The Associated Press.
"Collectively there's al-
ways a decision that's
made in terms of time of
arrest, when we plan to ar-
rest,"'he said, later adding,
"It's not uncommon for us
not to make immediate
arrests on situations like
that."
Radel appears to be the
first sitting member of
Congress charged with a
drug offense since former
Rep. Frederick Richmond,
D-N.Y., was convicted in
1982 on charges of tax eva-
sion and drug possession.
A spokesman for House
Speaker John Boehner, R-
Ohio, said the allegations
are a matter for the courts.
"'Beyond that, this is
between Rep. Radel, his
family and his' constitu-
ents," Boehner spokesman
Michael Steel said.

Sheriff Grady Judd an-
nounced the arrests last
month of the 12-year-
old girl and a 14-year-old
girl. He said the two girls
primarily were respon-
sible for bullying Rebecca
Sedwick, a 14-year-old
girl who jumped to
her death at an aban-
doned concrete plant in
September.
"I found zero evidence
having to do with my client
that would rise to the level
of a criminal act," Baez
said at a news conference
outside his Orlando office.
Baez described his
client as a, "troubled
young girl" who had been
bullied' herself, and he
said it was "reckless" for
Judd to have arrested his
client.

The Florida lawmaker

Miami hotel seeks new

MIAMI Hotel manag-

.The InterContinental

dancer last year as part of

The downtown Miami
hotel will hold auditions
Thursday to' find a new

GeneralmanagerIRobert

$16M lottery ticket

unclaimed in Florida


The Associated Press

TAMPA Hitting a $16
million Powerball jack-
pot is a dream for most
people.
But losing a fortune by
letting those lottery win-
nings expire is a night-
mare and that's what
will, happen today 'if
someone doesn't claim
the ticket bought in May
at a suburban Tampa con-
ivenience store.
Lottery officials say this
will be the largest un-
claimed jackpotin Florida
since 2003, when some-
one didit claim $53 mil-
lion in the -Florida Lotto
game.
Neighborhood residents
who have been following-
the lack of action on the
recent winner's part.have
taken to speculating on
the mystery of why some-,
one would take the time
to buy a lottery ticket, win
$16 million, and not claim
the winnings.
Maybe the winner died
before he or she could
cash in. (Sad.)
Maybe the person lost
the ticket or threw it away.
(Unlucky)
Maybe the person is
from out of state and for-
got. (Sad and unlucky!)
Or maybe the person
has spent six months get-
ting his or her affairs in
order before claiming the
jackpot. (Brilliant if a little


obsessive.)
"I wish I had it," sighed
resident Laura Winkles.
"How could someone be
so silly? This is just free
money."
The owner of the Car-
rollwood Market said
Monday that she wonders
about the winner every
day she walks into her
store.
"The store is a neigh-
borhood store, and pretty
much 90 percent of our
customers are regular
customers," she said. "We
still have a little bit of
hope that somebody will
come before Thursday."
Nidia Tannous has
placed signs in her store's
window, urging custom-
ers to check their Power-
ball tickets from Memo-
rial Day.
The store received
$25,000 for selling the
winning ticket.
"I bought a ticket that
very day that' ticket
was sold here," said Joe
Fitzgerald, a nearby resi-
dent. "I checked mine,
and unfortunately; it
wasn't mine.'
According to the Florida
Lottery website, if a Pow-
erballjackpot isn't claimed
within 180 days from the
draw date, "the funds to
pay the unclaimed jack-
pot will be returned to the
lottery members in their
proportion of sales for the
jackpot rollover series."

The Associated Press

WASHINGTON Honoring the
legacy of John E Kennedy, Presi-
dent Barack Obama laid a wreath
at the assassinated president's
gravesite as a nation remembers
that terrible day in Dallas a half-
century ago Friday. Obama also
recognized a group of distin-
guished Americans including
Bill Clinton and Oprah Winfrey
- with the Presidential Medal of
Freedom, an award created by
Kennedy.
Obama was joined at Arlington
National Cemetery onWednesday
by Clinton, and each president
held hands with Ethel Kennedy,
widow of Robert E Kennedy, as
they climbed a flight of stairs to
the burial site on a steep hillside
overlooking the nation's capital.
First lady Michelle Obama and
former. Secretary of State, Hillary
Rodham Clinton- helped their
husbands place a large wreath
of white flowers in front of the
roped-off gravesite of America's
35th president, which is marked
by an ever-burning flame.
Both couples placed their hands
over their hearts as taps sounded
near a U.S. flag at half-staff be-
fore greeting Kennedy relatives,
including some who arrived
in Obama's motorcade, before
Friday's 50th anniversary of the
assassination.
The day of tributes began at
the White House, where Obama
awarded the Presidential Medal
of Freedom to 16 living and de-
ceased Americans for their con-
tributions in fields ranging from
sports and entertainment to sci-
ence and public service.

f fhe'Assoctated Press

WASHINGTON Trou-
ble inside the Air Force's
nuclear missile force runs
deeper and wider than of-
ficials have let on.
An unpublished study
for the Air Force, obtained
by The Associated Press,
cites "burnout" among

of broader behavioral is-

The study, provided to
the AP in draft form, says
that court-martial rates in
the nuclear missile force
in 2011 and. 2012 were
more than twice as high
as in the overall Air Force.
Administrative punish-
ments, such as written


reprimands for rules vio-

in those years.

NYC sets deadline for stores



in racial profiling probe


The Associated Press

NEW YORK Probing allega-
tions of racial profiling, New York
City is giving 17 major retail stores
until Friday to submit information
on how they've dealt with shoppers
suspected of stealing.
The City Council tackled the
emotional issue on Wednesday at
a hearing that included statements
frornMacy's and Barneys New York
denying allegations 'by customers
that they had been singled out and
followed.
City Council member Jumaane
Williams .calls, the problem
"staggering.":
The stores did niot send repre-
sentatives to the session in the'City
Council's main chamber.
"I'm offended that Barneys New
York and Macy's is not here. I think
ii's insulting, not just to the, City
Council, but to the city of New York
and the people who ,shop there,"
Williams said.
The NYC Commission on Human
Rights has sent letters to 17 retail-
ers-including Macv's and Barneys
- requesting the following infor-
mation: loss prevention policies;
procedures for approaching and
detaining individuals suspected of
theft; records regarding all individu-
als accused of theft in the past two
years; and what, if any presence,
NYPD officers have in the retail
locations.
Thestores are: CenturV2 1. Loehm-
ann's, Sephora, Target, Blooming-
dale's, Bergdorf Goodman, Banana
Republic, Old Navy, Sears, Lord &
Taylor, Neiman Marcus, The Gap,
CVS, Saks Fifth Avenue, Barneys,
Macy's, Bath & Body Works/Limited
Brands/Victoria's Secret.
Letters may be sent to addi-
tional businesses, but "we se-
lected these locations based upon
previous discrimination complaints
against these stores,-and the size
and prominence of the stores," said
Patricia Galling, the city's human
rights commissioner. "This is only
the beginning of our investigation."


In this May 1, photo. Jay-Z arrives at "The Great Gatsby" world premiere in New
York City's Avery Fisher Hall. In a statement posted on his website on Friday. Nov.
15, the entertainer said that he's planning to move forward with his scheduled
collaboration with Barneys New York despite allegations that black shoppers had
been racially profiled at the high-end retailer.


The Associated Press requested
comment from each of the retailers
by phone and email only Sephora
replied as of late Wednesday. Sepho-
ra declined comment.
While tensions over shoppers'
charges that they are being followed
in various stores have simmered,
for years, they've resurfaced again
in recent months after several
incidents.
A 19-year-old City College of
Technology student, Trayon Chris-
tian, sued the NYPD and Barneys
last month, claiming he was racially
targeted after buying a $349 Fer-
ragamo belt in April at the Madison
Avenue store.
And Barneys customer Kayla Phil-
lips, 21, filed a complaint with the
city's police watchdog agency, say-
ing she had a similar experience af-
ter buying a $2,500 Celine handbag
in February.
Barneys CEO Mark Lee had
apologized, saying "no one should
go through the unacceptable
experiences .described by Trayron
Christian and Kayla Phillips in re-
cent media reports, and we offer
our deepest sympathies to them
-both."
But the company said in a report


issued Tuesday that it "'employees
did not initiate any profiling, and
did not call police requesting or
suggesting that the customers be
stopped or detained.
Actor Robert Brown filed a law-
suit against Ma&N`x5, saving he was
stopped inside its flagship store
in Herald Square in June after he
purchased a $1,350 Niovado wrist-
watch. Brown said he thought
he was stopped because he is
African-American.
Nlacy's has said it does not toler-
ate discrimination.
The Rev. Al 'Sharpton also testi-
fied at Wednesday's hearing, as did
Donna Ueberman of the New York-
Civil Liberties Union.
'It's important that we hear from
both the department stores and the
police department what on earth is
going on when people of color go'
shopping and end up in handcuffs,"
said Lieberman.
No one represented the New York
Police Department at the hearing.
Hip hop star Jay-Z, who is promot-
ing a Barneys clothing line, said he's
working with the retailer on issues
of racial profiling. But a launch par-
ty for the Iaz-Z collection planned.
for Wednesday was canceled.


Rehab: Brown threw rock through mom's car window


The Associated Preii

LOS ANGELES-A judge
ordered Chris Brown on
Wednesday to spend three
months in rehab after
reading a report that said
a facility discharged the
R&B singer because he
threw a rock through his
mother's car window.
Superior Court Judge
* Janmes Brandlin also added
additional rules for Brown
in the coming months, re-
quiring him to perform at
least 24 hours of commu-
nity labor a week and to
submit to drug testing as
he deals with anger man-
agement issues.
Brown and his attorney
agreed to the terms, which
were suggested by proba-
don officials who are over-
seeing Brown's sentence
for his 2009 beating of
then-girlfriend Rihanna.
The Grammy winner
threw a rock through his
mother's car window Nov.
10 after a joint counseling


session in which she sug-
gested the singer remain
in treatment, according to
a letter submitted by the
rehab facility. The facility's
name was not included in
court filings.
"N-r. Brown proceeded to
walk outside and pick up a
rock and threw it through
his mother's car window
and it shattered," the let-
ter states. Brown was dis-
charged because he had
signed a contract agreeing
to refrain from violence
while in treatment.
The singer voluntarily
checked into rehab for
anger management treat-
ment Oct. 29, just day's
after he was arrested in
Washington, D.C., after
a man accused Brown of
punching him after he
tried to get in a photo with
the singer.
The incident and the
resulting misdemeanor
assault charge could still
trigger a probation vio-
lation that could lead to


more sanctions against
'Brown.
Brandlin ordered pro-
bation officials to collect
more details on the Wash-
ington arrest, and report
back to him before a Dec.
19 hearing. A prosecutor
did not seek any revoca-
tion of Brown's probation
at Wednesday'S hearing
but said she was awaiting
more details.
Brown is due to -appear
in a Washington, D.C.,
court Monday Brandlin
allowed the singer to trav-
el for the hearing, but his
ruling makes clear that the
expectation for the singer
for the next few months is
to receive treatment and
perform community labor
such as graffiti removal or
roadside cleanup.
Brown's probation re-
port states the singer has
said he wants treatment
for his anger management
issues. He reported being

dered to re-do 1,000 hours

Brown has performed 20
hours so far, according to
the report. An officer ex-
pressed concern that the
singer wouldn't complete
his assignment if Brown
was not required to per-
form at least 25 hours of
work per week.
The singer appeared in
court Wednesday with his
girlfriend Karrueche Tran
and only spoke once to
acknowledge he agreed to
the terms imposed by the
judge. His mother, who
has attended many of her
son's court hearings, did
not attend Wednesday's

At the request of Brown's
attorney, Mark Geragos,
Brown was also ordered to
take any medications his
doctor prescribed.



He asked the board to

Travis Meyer, representing Southeastern Retail Development,
asked for and received two additional 60-day extensions
Tuesday on the inspection period associated with his company's

instance.
The proposed policy
states that the county'
would make every effort to
help called-out employees
ensure that needs of their
immediately families are
met as their county'-em-
ployed loved ones are busy
in the crisis response. The
policy indicated that, in ful-
filling that role. the county
might help employees es-

take into account the em-
ployee's obligation to- be

The proposal also spelled
out some of the agen-
cies/deparuments that are,
considered as providing

cases.
* There was one omission
and one inclusion in that
list which drew the atten-
tion of some commission-
ers as they reviewed the
document. The Jackson
County Sheriff's Office was
not listed by name, vet a
single constitutional of-

Appraiser, was included
as being support essential.

to know why. As to the,

county would have an ad-
ditional 30 days to vacate

ect, Jackson County Com-
missioners also voted this
week to hire Donofro and
Associates to provide ar-
chitectural services forthe
construction of a new of-
fice building in another lo-
cation to replace the struc-

property.

such cases, it might have.
been thought of as a given
that the law enforcement
agency would be in full
response mode anyway.
As to why the property
appraiser's office was the
only constitutional office

will be looking further into
that matter.
Some commissioners
were also concerned that
the paragraph about the
county meeting the needs
of workers' families was
too vague. They wanted
that section sharpened.
Andresen and County
Administrator Ted Lakey

Israel, Gulf in'strange alliance against Iran


The Associated Press ~ ~ 1~


DUBAI, United Arab Emirates
- When U.S. Secretary of State
John Kerry made another stop in
the Middle East this month, he
received an expected earful over
Washington's outreach to Iran:
Don't trust Tehran, tighten sanc-
tions even more, anything short
of complete nuclear concessions
is a grave mistake.
Kerry's meeting wasn't in Is-
rael, though: It was in Riyadh,
listening to Saudi leaders.
In one of the region's oddest
pairings, Israel and the Gulf Arab
states led by Saudi'Arabia in-
creasingly are finding common
ground and a common politi-
cal language on their mutual
dismay over Iran's history-mak-
ing overtures to Washington and
the prospect of a nuclear deal in
Geneva that could curb Tehran's
atomic program but leave the
main elements intact, such as
uranium enrichment.
"The adage about 'the en-
emy of my enemy is my friend'
is playing out over Iran," said
Theodore Karasik, a security and
political affairs analyst at the
Dubai-based Institute for Near
East and Gulf Military Analysis.
"This situation opens up some
interesting possibilities as it all
shakes out."
There seems little chance of
major diplomatic breakthroughs
between Israel- and the Gulf's
array of ruling monarchs and
sheiks. But their shared worries
over Iran's influence and ambi-
dons already has brought back-
channel contacts and "intimate
relationships" on defense and
other strategic interests through

Syria. '-Already, there has been some


curious cross currents by foes
viewing Israel and Saudi Arabia
as being on the same page.
After the Beirut bombings,
Iran's foreign minister blamed
Israel for the attacks. Hezbollah
and Syrian officials, however,
indirectly pointed the finger at
Saudi Arabia, which is a leading
backer of Syrian rebel factions
along with Gulf ally Qatar.
On Monday, the official Saudi
Press Agency put out a statement
categorically denying a report in
Britain's Sunday Times that the
kingdom and Israel were making
.contingencies" for an attack on
Iran if diplomacy fails to make
deep cuts in Tehran's nuclear
program.
It's not difficult, though; for
Middle East commentators to
speculate on the meeting' of
minds between Israel and Saudi
Arabia. The roots of their shared
fears over Iran are so similar.
Israel considers a nuclear-
armed Iran or even if it is
near that capability as a di-
rect threat to its survival after

Rio s Olympic waterways


full of trash, sewage


The Associate JFPrec-.

RIO DE JANEIRO Rio
deJaneiro's endless beach-
es, and lush tropical forest
will 'be: a photographer's
dream during the 2016
Olinpics. But zoom in on
the likes of once-pristine
Guanabara Bay, and the
picture is of household
trash and raw sewage.
In the neon green wa-
ters around the site of the
future Olympic Park, the
average fecal pollution
rate is 78 times that of the
Brazilian government's
"satisfactory" limit and
195 times the level consid-
ered safe in the U.S. Nearly
70 percent of Rio's sewage
goes untreated, mean-
ing runoff from its many
slums and poor neighbor-
hoods drain into waters
soon to host some of the
world's best athletes.
Unless Brazil makes
headway in cleaning up
its waters,' experts warn
the Summer Games could
pose health risks to ath-
letes and mar what officials
hope will be a global show-
case event: Instead of the
soaring vistas of Sugarloaf
'Mountain, the world could
instead see old couches in
the bay and tons of dead
fish floating; atop a city
lake.
Rio's Olympic committee
has pledged in writing that
the pollution problems
will be fixed, and many
had hoped the Olym-
pics would force authori-
ties to, tackle decades of
neglect and poor plan-
ning that have blighted
waterways.
Leonardo 'Gryner, chief'-
operating officer of Rio's
organizing committee, has
acknowledged the 'extent
of the water qualityprob-
lem; But he said projects
were "well advanced" to
make good on the city's
commitment to reduce 80
percent of the pollution
flowing into the bay, where
sailing and wind surfing
events are to be held.
With just 2 1/2years to go
,before the games, howev-
er, experts say cleanup ef-
forts are moving at a snail's
pace and haven't signifi-
cantly improved capacity

The Lagoa Rodrigo'de

huge fish die-offs that leave

set to take place on the
briny lake.
Another entrenched
problem is the 148-square-
mile Guanabara Bay, where
the only exit for foul, pol-
luted waters is through a
,narrow opening onto the
Atlantic Ocean. Home to
a thriving artisanal fislh-
irig industry and popular
palm-lined beaches as re-
centlyas the late-1970s, the
bay has become a watery
dump for waste from ship-


yards and two commercial
ports as well as leachate,
the toxic byproduct of
mountains of rotting trash
sitting at what was South
America's largest landfill
until its closure last year.
At low tide, household
trash, including old wash-
ing machines and soggy
couches, float atop vast
islands of accumulated
sewage and sediment.
Experts say it's even pos-
sible that vessels plowing
through the water at speeds
of more than 20' mph
during Olympic events
could collide with floating
detritus below the surface.

wins by an average of 33.2 points
per game but that could change
this week when they head to Mid-
land, Te\., for the Women's NIT
featuring eight of the best wom-
en's teams in the country.
The tourney will also feature
the No. 1 and No. 2 teams in the
country, Trinity Valley and Cen-
tral Arizona, who played in last
year's national tournament final,
as well as No. 23 Midland, who
takes on Salt. Lake today in its
first round matchup.
Chipola will open up today
* with Odessa, which is 6-1 to start


the season and averaging 86.3
points per game..
With a win, the Lady Indians
will get the winner of Angelina vs.
Cloud County on Friday at 6 p.m.
Chipola coach Greg Franklin
said Wednesday that he didn't
know who he would be matched
up with when he accepted the
invitation to play in Midland,
but he knew that the field would
provide a big-time challenge for
his club early in the season.
"I knew who was going to be
in it and I thought it would be a
good test for us earlyto seewhere
we're at," he said. "It will show us
where we are right now. It was a
blind draw, but I knew the possi-
bilities that were out there to test
us, so we're going to go out there
and represent the Panhandle."

The Niarianna Bulldogs used a
13-4 run to start the fourth quar-
ter to fend off a short-handed
Cottondale Hornets squad for a
69-54-win Tuesday night in the
regular season-opener for both
teims at NHS.

ing with 16 points, while Mike

While the win was ultimately de-
cisive for the Bulldogs, coach Tra-
vis Blanton said after the game that
he didn't think his players matched
the intensity of the Hornets players
* for much of the night.
"Cortondale came to play and
they played tougher than we
did, grittier than we did, and
did what they had to -do to give
themselves a chance to win," he
said. "It's kind of bad to be disap-
pointed when you win, but I was
not happy with how we played.
Of course, Cottondale had some-
thing to do with that."
It was a solid effort for the Hor-
nets, who were playing without
a pair of key regulars in senior
starting guard Norris Calhoun,
who is with the Conondale foot-
ball team, and 6-foot-5 center
Kyshon AU, who was nursing a
knee injury.
"1 was proud of the effort." Hor-
nets coach Chris Obert said.. We
showed some heart and some
toughness and battled hard. I
couldn't ask for more in terms of
competing. We're just not quite as
deep as we need to be. But NMari-
anna is an outstanding team, so
to try to compete against them, I
can't ask for much more."

?J Her scored 28 points and Kent
Rogers and Art Platts each added

picked up a huge district road
victory Tuesday night in Sneads,
knocking off the Pirates 61-59 in
the regular season-opener for
both teams.-
Sneads'led-31-28 at the half,
but Altha moved ahead in the
,third period and took a four-
point edge into the fourth and
held off the Pirates in the final
minute.
JeremyWert scored 35 points and
knocked down 15-pf-15 free throws
to lead the Pirates,,with Darius Wil-
liams adding 11.
But other than. that,, first-year
Sneads coach Bruce Hubbs said
there were few positives to take
from his team's performance.
"We didn't sho* up. We couldn't
throw it in the ocean from the pier.
We didn't play very well," he said.
"But it's just the first one. We've got
23 to go. I don't like to lose any of
them, but we've, got a lot of games
ahead and a lot of times on the
court before we have to put our
equipment away.",
Sneads will have another big dis-
trict test Friday when the Vernon
Yellowjackets come to town in a
game that certainly isn't a must-
win situation so early in the year,
but one in which the Pirates will
want to get to avoid an 0-2 start in
league play.
"It's a big game for the fact that
we need to show improvement,"
Hubbs said. "We've shown im-
provement in every game we've
played. Parts of the puzzle are
coming together and becoming
more clear. My goal is to improve
and be better each game and try
to add to the pieces a little bit to
see who all can play and contrib-
ute. A lot of it is just trying to see
improvement."

Attorney critical of police in Winston probe


The Associated Press

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. The
family and attorney of the al-
leged victim in a sexual assault
investigation involving Florida
State quarterback Jameis Win-
ston on Wednesday sharply criti-
cized Tallahassee police in their
first public comments about the
case.
The lengthy family statement
said their attorney, Patricia Car-
roll, was warned by police that
Tallahassee was a "big foot-
ball town and the victim needs
to think long and hard before
proceeding against him be-
cause she will be raked over the
coals and her life will be made
miserable."
The statement which was
first provided to the Tampa Bay
Times, also said the woman
"cannot fathom" why local pros-
ecutors were not told about the
investigation involving Winston


THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston is being investigated for his
possible role in a reported sexual assault.


until last week.
A spokesman for Tallahassee
police did not respond to repeat-
ed requests for comment.
Winston was a top freshman
recruit and backup quarterback


at the time of the alleged De-
cember 2012 assault, but is now
a Heisman Trophy candidate
and the Seminoles are the sec-.
ond-ranked football team in the
country.


Carroll, in an interview with
The Associated Press, also dis-
puted the assertion by City Man-
agerAnita Favors Thompson that
the investigation into the alleged
assault was put on hold because
the woman no longer wanted to
prosecute,
Favors Thompson, saying that
she anticipated national media
interest -because of Winstorns
celebrity, emailed that inforrima-
tion to the Tallahassee mayor
and;city commissioners on.
Nov. 12. Her email stated police
"stopped getting responses from
the young woman and could no
longer contact her for additional
follow up anrd information after
many attempts to do so.
'The city manager said an at-
torney representing the alleged
victim's family said she "changed
her mind and did not wish to
prosecute."
Carroll, however, said that the
woman never told police she did


not want to press charges.
Carroll said that the accuser
- who is from the Tampa Bay
area-was going ahead with her
life and attending classes at FSU
when it became apparent that
the police had no plans to seri-
ously investigate the case. She
left school last week when she
learned that Ithe case was about
to become public.
"I had no faith whatsoever in
the Tallahassee police depart-
ment," said Carroll.
The statement from the fam-
ily said that Carroll asked a Tal-
lahassee police detective about
obtaining a DNA sample from
Winston. But that the detective
refused to get' the sample and
refused to interview 'people-
,including Winston's roommate
-who may have witnessed the
attack. The family said the de-
tective. told Carroll that "such
activity would alert Winston and
the matter would go public.")


Richt bemoans missed chance


The Associated Press

ATHENS, Ga. Mark
Richt said Tuesday he re-
grets not reminding Geor-
gia players to knock down
a pass at the end of last
week's loss to Auburn.
Auburn's Ricardo Louis
made the 73-yard touch-
down catch with 25 sec-
onds remaining that gave
the Tigers a 43-38 win.
Richt said no coach, in-
cluding defensive coordi-
nator Todd Grantham, told
the defense in a timeout
before the play to bat-down
the fourth-and-18 pass.
Georgia' sophomore
safety Josh Harvey-Clem-
ons deflected the pass to
Louis while trying for an
interception. Safety Tray
Matthews, a freshman,
also defended the play.
"Obviously, at the end
of the game, you've got to
know to knock a ball down
in that, situation," Richt
said. "You know, we had a
timeout prior to that. I'm in
there, Grantham's in there,
we're- all in there. I could
have easily said, 'Hey guys,
if the ball is launched deep,
bat it down.' I could have
said that. That's a good re-
minder for a young bunch
of guys back there.
"Ihadmychance to coach
that up and didn't do it."
Richt said the defense
prepares for similar fourth-
and-long plays every week
-in practice.
-"We bat it down every
Thursday," Richt said.

cept a pass can overwhelm

the ball is coming right to
you and you're thinking
about getting it," Richt
said. "Josh is trying to de-
fend the play. He's looking
at the ball.",
Georgia linebacker
Amarlo Herrera said no
reminders from Richi or
Grantham should have
been necessary.
"It's football. You should
know the situation," Her-'
rera said Thesday. "We all
are supposed to know the
situation when we play de-
fense. I mean, that doesn't
have to be said. You should
know ft and if you don't
know it, it is what it is." .
The loss .ended the
Southeastern Conference
championship hopes for
Georgia (6-4,4-3 SEC). The
Bulldogs will play Ken-


tucky on "Saturday night.
The dramatic loss to Au-
burn- was the dominant
topic on Tiesday.
-Georgia trailed Auburn
37-17 in the fourth quarter
before quarterback Aarori
Murray led an- improbable
comeback for a 38-37 lead.
Richt said he tells, his
players and coaches to
always ask "what I could
have done better" instead
of pointing to mistakes by
others.',He said he thought
*of his .missed opportunity
in the timeout; when cri-
tiquing his performance.
Richt may have been at-
tempting to deflect criti-
cism of Grantham, who has
faced mounting criticism.
Georgia has allowed at'
least 30 points seven times
this season, and more than


40 in three games. Georgia
ranks 82nd in the nation
with its average of 30.2
points allowed per game.
. Auburn had 323 yards
rushing and 566 total yards
-.each high marks allowed
by Georgiaxthis season.
Despitetheuglynumbers,
Richt said fourth-quarter
defensive stops made -the'
comeback possible.
"I'll just say this: I'was
pleased with how we fin-
ished that last game," he
said. "Other than that one
play, there was a string of
some great defense being
played, just to allow -us to
,get' back into, the game-
without trying to do some,
desperation onside kick."
Georgia seniors will play
their final home game'-
against Kentucky. There
are only two seniors among
Georgia's starters aind top
backups on defense: start-
ing defensive end Garrison
Smith and backup safety
Connor Norman.
Georgia lists three fresh-
men as defensive starters:
outside linebacker Leon-
ard Floyd, cornerback Shaq
Wiggins and Matthews.
There are 16 freshmen
and sophomores oin the
two-deep depth chart on
defense.
"We have so manyyoung
guys that we're dependent
on and they just don't have
the experience," Smith
said. "It's just -tough but
at the end of the day I'm
proud of everybody. I'm
proud of this team.'
"This team is goingto
come up. We have almost
everybody coming back, -
especially on defense and
they can't go nowhere but

With the possible excep-

nothing has had more of
an impact on the Atlantic
Coast Conference standings
thisseason than injuries.
North Carolina, Mary-

behind Winston while
avoiding serious injury on

est last month. -
At least the situation is
better than it was a year,
ago, when the Terrapins
lost four quarterbacks and
had a promising 4-2 start
turn into a 4-8 disaster.
North Carolina's depth

Bryn Renner needed sur-

Rejuvenated Ginn makes return to Miami


iT '.: : lTU I

struggling to find playing time with the Dolphins and 49ers.

"I 'thought the, guys played

Ginn, who was an af-

well as a returned for

--nxnie's Mailbox


Dear Annie: Over the past 10 years, I
have noticed that my sister's memory
has become very confused. She often has
false memories, believing something
that happened to a friend or celebrity
actually happened to her. She also says
hurtful things and doesn't remember say-
ing them. My husband and I decided it
was best just to let it go, as she gets upset
quite easily.
Recently, she said something that
really hirt my feelings, and I decided
to talk'to her about it and clear the air.
However, when I mentioned it, she
became terribly agitated and insisted
she would never say any such thing. She
actually got her family involved, and they
agreed that I was imagining'things.
I love my sister and don't want to upset
her, but this really bothers me. She has
mentioned that her friends joke about
hep memory, and she doesn't like it.


Bridge

Australian Bridge is published four times a year in
a large-page format. As with all of these magazines,
it aims primarily at duplicate players, but has mate-
rial for le'ss-capable players.'
This. opening-lead quiz comes from Ron Klinger.
Lookatonly the West hand. South opens one heart,
you pass, and North responds four diamonds,
showing four-plus hearts, at least game-going val-
ues, and at most one diamond. East surprises you
by intervening with five diamonds, but South rebids
five hearts, and everyone passes. What would you
lead?
Klinger is a leading player, teacher and writer
who has a great eye for an instructive deal. This one
occurred during an Australian trial. At the table,
Barbara Travis found the best lead: the diamond
king. Her side was getting at most one diamond
trick. And it might have been important for her
to shift through the dummy at trick two. Also, if
partner knew no switch would be helpful, she could
have overtaken with the diamond ace and tried a
lead from her side of the table.
Here, East played the diamond three at trick one,
a suit-preference signal for clubs. West led that suit
at trick two, and declarer had to lose three tricks:
one heart, one diamond and one club.
If West's opening lead had been a low diamond
and East had shifted to a low club, South probably
would have put up her queen, based on East's five-
diamond bid. And declarer might well have guessed
spades also. It was much better not to give South a
chance.


But I'm surprised that her children and
husband are not aware of the problem.
Should I just let it go?
-MASSACHUSETTS

Dear Mauachusetts:We suspect her
husband and children are well aware
of the problem, but -have chosen hot to
deal with it. Please encourage your sister
to talk to her doctor. Say that you are
worried about her. Memory problems
are common, but if she is substituting
others' experiences for her own, it could
be more serious.
Ask if she is scheduled for a regular;
checkup and see whether you can ac-
company her, alerting the doctor if she
neglects to do so. Also mention your
concerns to her husband and children.
Your sister may be too embarrassed to
address this, so they need to be more
* proactive., _

A couple of questions we
just had to ask ourselves

a RICKY'S TROPHY


AP/TERRY REFEA
Jimmie, Chad have
run out of fingers.
How many champi-
onships will Jimmie
Johnson have when
his career ends?
GODSPEAK: OK, let's
spin the wheel. And the
number is eight, which
is one better than the.
record and twice as
many as Jeff Gordon
gathered.
KEN'S CALL: Some-
where between six and
20? Here' a hunch:
How about seven? He'll
tie but not beat the
record.
Denny Hamlin?
How'd that happen?
GODSPEAK: His lower-
back fracture must have
completely healed on
Sunday. Denny is back
in the saddle again.
KEN'S CALL: Someone
must've reminded him

Sometimes even if you win, you lose. That
was the case Sunday wren Ricky Stenhouse Jr
wrestled the NASCAP Sprint Cup Series Rookie of
the Year title irorn his girllrienr. Danica Patrick
Patrick was the early favorite for rookie honors
before Matt Kenseth decided to leave Roush Fen-
way Racing and take a wheel at Joe Gibbs Racing
Tha3t opened the door for Stenhouse's rookie run
and shifted the balance o0 pov-er
When asked about Patrick, Stenhouse gave her
high marks and praised her for early-season ac-
complishments, such as winning the Daytona 500
pole, then finishing eighth in that race.
"She jumped out there at Daytona with a top-10
finish.' Stenhouse said after the season finale at
Homestead-Miani Speedway. .She was in front of
us for a while and had the best finish of us tor a
long time. too.
"It was fun. We joked a little bit about it. but we
didn't really focus too much on it. We definitely
wanted to focus all our efforts on the race track,
lust try to get the best finish we could every week
Obviously the points just kind of play theirselves
out. We both wanted to just finish as beSt we could
each and every week "
There is no record of Patrick publicly congratu-
lating Stenhouse for capturing the rookie award.
She won the battle of the day at homestead. finish-
ing 20th, two positions better than Stenhouse. and
talked only of her team and it's, effort in 2013
"I'm proud of the GoDaddy guys.' said Fatrick.
who made her 46th Sprint Cup start at Homestead
"They gave me a good. consistent car tkat drove
well Tony Gibson (crew chief) made gre3t calls all
night. and the pit crew was outstanding, as they
always are. The handling and the balance were
good all night It was a solid run for us a good
way to end the year and go into the
offseason." 4
Stenhouse plans to enjoy
his rookie monient. which
includes an invite to the NAS-
CAR Awards Banquet in Las
Vegas in a couple of weeks.
It will be interesting to see
if lie uses the 'plus one" cni
the invitation.
"It definitely wasn't
the season that we
wanted, but we slowly but
Stirely got a little bit better
throughout the season,"
Sterihouse said. "I was
proud of what we did


throughout the season getting better. qualifying
better, having runs up front, leading laps through.
out this year. Thought we had a chance at winning
sorrie races there, at least being in contention. I
was proud of those moments '

OUT WITH THE OLD
Judging biy Mark Martin's comments, the Cup
Series race at Homestead was his last start in
the series "It is hard to believe that I've lived this
dream." Martin said. "It is really hard to believe.
I am still deep down inside I'm still the kid
Irom Arkansas that got the huge thrill the first
time I went to Daytona as a spectator to watch the
Daytona 500. I wasn't even a teenager yet. I never
dreamed I would be able to do the things that I've
done and to have the success that I've had It's
been a dream. Living a dream."

LOOK FOR JUNIOR
Six-time NASCAR champion Jimmie Johnson
and Dale Earrthardt Jr have their cars prepped
side by side in the same shop at Hendrick Motor-
sports, Since Earnhardt joined Rick Hendrick in
2008, Johnson has scored four of his titles That
roust weai on a driver s mind. 'I'n really proud of
rry team," Earnhardt said Sunday. "If we're able to
put together another good season and are fortu-
nate enough to make the Chase ned! year, we'll be
one they need to worry about."


AP/TERRYHENNA
At this point, no one cares that
Genevieve's hat is upside-down.

Where do you rank Jimmie John-
son's six championships?
It's tough enough comparing ac-.
compiishments across different eras,
but with the different formats used
through the decades, it's impossible.
Richard Petty won the bulk of his
seven championships under a different
points formula than the one Dale Earn-
hardt used. And Jimmie Johnson's six
have come under a very different for-
mat than both of those two. You can
only state the obvious: Johnson and
the No. 48 team are the undisputed
heavyweight champs of-this era.
If (or 'when) he gets to seven, do.
we treat it the same? .
Does it matter? Here's what we'll
never know: How many champion-
ships would Petty and Earnhardt have
won if they'd had the Chase format in
their day? Maybe more, maybe fewer.
Any doubt Jimmie will go beyond
seven championships some day?*
Of course there's some doubt. only
because rio'ohe.has evei'done it. Right
now, yoU wouldn't bet against 10, but
things change in. a hurry. There was
a time ,w thought Jeff Gordon would
win 150 races and at least seven
championships. On Nov. 26,2009,
Tiger Woods had. 14 major champion-
.ships, and no one would've bet against
him getting to 25. On Nov. 27 he ran
into a fire hydrant, and four years
later, we don't even know if he'll get to
15. On-the -bright side for Jimmie, let's
assume he could avoid

Matt Denny
Kenseth Hamlin
Matt Kenseth vs. Denny Hamlin:
Kenseth now realizes Joe Gibbs Racing
has three Cup Series entries -r he fin--
ished second to Hamlin at Homestead..

Godwin Kelly gives his take: "This is
not so much a feud as a reality check.'
Hamlin hasn't been a factor most of
the season and that will change in
2014.'
