Coming full circle


After decades

in Los Angeles

and Atlanta,
dry-cleaner

has business

closer to home
BY DEBORAH BUCKHALTER
dbuckhalter'icilloridan.com

Soon after Chris Giles
finished high school in her
nad veChattahoocheeback
in the 1960s, all she wanted
to do was to get away from
small-town life and experi-
ence what might await her
in a big citr. She headed
to California, settling near
Los Angeles.
She was on a bus one
day when she struck up a
friendly conversation with
another young woman on
board. They talked about
the usual things; what
they did for a living, and
touched on some of their
dreams. The other woman

was a singer, looking to
make it big in show busi-
ness. Giles had a passion
for designing clothes. The
two hit it off and wound
up exchanging phone
numbers.
That bus mate would
become a good friend.
Once, when they were out
together, the singer saw
someone wearing an el-
egant five-layer evening
gown that she, as a strug-
gling up-and-comer, knew
she could not even begin.
to afford.


Her friend, Chris, came-
to the iescue. The w6mai
in the gown passed in and
out of the room several
times that night, and Giles
would study the dress each
time she came through. As
soon as she left each time,
Giles grabbed the pencil
and scrap of paper she had
stashed away in the pocket
of her shirt, Using those
sketches as a guide, Giles
went home and designed
something similar for her

Heroes are those who shaped our lives


XA ile growing up
\/\f in America, most
Y V of us have been
aware of make-believe
characters that are con-
sidered heroes. Through
cartoons, comics from the
newspapers, comic books
and toys, fictitious charac-
ters have become a part of
our lifestyle. The enjoy-
ment and entertainment
that have been presented
to us through cartoon and
movie characters such as
Superman, Batman and
Robin, The Lone Ranger
and Tonto, Popeye the
Sailor, and newer heroes
such as Iron Man, have
been nonstop year after
year. C
Most of these characters
have captivated us as chil-
dren and, in some cases,
as adults. Just the idea of
someone or something
being able to have super
power brings on excite-
ment. Those who believe


in "The Word" believe in
David, who became a hero






Thomas- Sampson
vo aftthat were
Vincent given to him
Murphy by God.
*Recently
the thought came to me
of how even in our day
and timge there ane "real
"life" people who could
be considered heroes
and, in many .cases, they
are closer to us than we
realize. One definition of
a hero is a man of distin-
guished courage or ability,
admired for his deeds and
noble qualities. Of course,
a woman with similar
definitions would be
called a "heroine."
There is so much bad
news we hear through the


media that often good
things go unnoticed or are
ignored. Some parents,
who have one of the big-
gest responsibilities in
the world, work two or
even three jobs in order
for their. child or children
to not only live a com-
fortable life but, in many
cases, to get a good qual-
ity education.
Though many parents
wouldn't ask for a pat on
'the back, shouldn't they
be commended for their
dedication and sacrifices?
What should we consider
a teacher who spends,
much of their own time
and accepts a modest
salary in order to help give
many children an honest
chance at success when
no one else, even their
families, believes in
them?
In many cases, the
people who are invalu-
able in our lives are taken


for granted while many
children and adults focus
on athletes, entertainers
and politicians to look up
to. The search for suc-
cess has instilled greed,
boastfulness, deception
and fame into the fiber
of our country. Many of
our citizens are so caught
up in financial gain and
popularity that they
seem to forget the most
valuable people in their
lives,
If we would take the
time to stop and think of
who has "really been most
important" in helping
to shape our lives, our
definition of heroes might
change somewhat. We
should thank God and
feel blessed for having
those in our lives who
have been inspiring influ-
ences on our lives.

9-10, making the jour-
ney on their canoes down
the Chipola River. Scouts
began their ,. adventures *
bright and early ori Satur-
day morning 'y meeting
at the Scout Hut at 7:30
a.m. It was perfect weath-
er for canoeing, with sun-
ny skies and an occasional
cool breeze.
Scouts and leaders be-
gan their journey at Yanc-
ey Bridge in Marianna,
with the day's course tak-
ing them through 16 miles
of beautiful countryside.
Scouts practiced valuable
skills in teamwork and
adhered strictly to safety
rules during their memo-
rable day together on the
water.
Upon arriving at their
camp site, scouts put up
their tents and quickly be-
gan preparations for night-
fall. After supper, every-
one gathered around the
campfire to enjoy games
and one of Scoutmaster
Kleinhans' imaginative
campfire stories.
Arising early the next
morning, each patrol pre-
pared breakfast and en-
joyed a devotional and
scripture reading pre-
sented by leader David
McArthur. Before leaving
the camping area, scouts
"policed" the area to make
sure the area was clean
and left in as good, or bet-
ter, shape than when they
arrived. Scouts then began
the last four miles of their
canoe trip and exited the
river at Peacock -Bridge
Road.

FSA programs face


spending reductions


Special to the Floridan

The USDA's Farm Ser-
vice Agency is reminding
farmers and ranchers who
participate in FSA pro-
grams to plan accordingly
in FY2014 for automatic
spending reductions
known as sequestration.
The Budget Control Act of
2011 mandates that fed-
eral agencies implement
automatic, annual re-
ductions to discretionary
and mandatory spend-
ing limits. For mandatory
programs, the sequestra-
tion rate for FY2014 is 7.2
percent. Accordingly, FSA
is implementing seques-
tration for the following
programs:
D Dairy Indemnity Pay-
ment Program; .
Marketing Assistance
Loans;
) Loan Deficiency
Payments;
Sugar Loans;
Noninsured Crop
Disaster Assistance
Program;
) Tobacco Transition
Payment Program;
D 2013 Direct and Coun-
ter-Cyclical Payments;
)) 2013 Average Crop
Revenue Election
Program;
) 2011 and 2012 Sup-
plemental Revenue As-
sistance Program;
) Storage, handling;
and Economic Adjust-
ment Assistance for up-
land cotton.
Conservation Reserve
Program payments are


exempt by statute from
sequestration, thus these
payments will not be
reduced.
These sequester per-
centages reflect current
law estimates; however
with the continuing bud-
get uncertainty, Congress
might still adjust the
exact percentage reduc-
tion. The announcement
intends to help produc-
ers .plan for the impact
of sequestration cuts in
FY2014.
At this time, FSA is re-
quired to implement the
sequester reductions.

basics of love."
"Luckenbach, Texas" by

ten by Chips Moman and

TATere does your
investment
WV adviser live, and
what does he/she drive?
What are his/her spend-
ing habits? And why
should you care?
David John Marotta
writes in MarottaonMon-
ey.com that there are 10
important safeguards


regarding hiring a pro-
spective financial adviser.
One is avoiding an adviser
with a lay-
-ish lifestyle.
10 M "Your best
defenei
.to engage
an adviser
Margaret whose daily
McDowell practices
reflect ways
to safeguard
'the money under his or
her fiduciary care," says
Marotta. "As part of iden-
tifying such an adviser,
make sure there is a mu-
tual understanding that an
ostentatious lifestyle is not
a valid financial goal."
Does your investment
adviser purchase showy


goods like vintage au-
tos and pricey art? If so,
according to Marotta,
you may want to reevalu-
ate your relationship.
"Wealth is what you save,
not what you spend,"
he says. "That's why an
ostentatious'and exces-
sive lifestyle is a red flag
for an investment adviser.
The rich buy investments
... not liabilities like boats
and cars."
"If Bernie Madoff had
bought businesses and
investments, he would be
,able to make restitution of
those initial investments.
He might even be able to
pay a fraction of the gains
he claimed to have."
Madoff owned a $7 mil-


lion NewYokk penthouse
and enjoyed a $3 million
Hamptons home on the
weekends. This was in
addition to a $9.3 million
mansion in south Florida.
On the French Riviera,
Madoff owned a $1 million
chalet and operated two
boats. He frequently spent
$100,000 a month on
chartered jets and limou-
sines. In his apartment sat
a Steinway concert grand
piano. He bought his
brother a vintage Aston-
Mattin, which was used as
a company car.
The spending was unbe-
lievable. All on the backs
of trusting investors. Obvi-
ously, Madoff's personal
wealth management hab-


its were at odds with those
of the vast majority of his
clients. His own personal
investment accounts were
not that sizable given the
level of his spending.
Madoff's lifestyle also
begs an important ques-
tion! while he was jetting
about, who was managing
his clients' money? Actu-
ally managing, monitoring
and rebalancing private
wealth portfolios requires
that an adviser spend
countless hours daily,
glued to a computer and
multiple screens, reading
and studying the move-
ment of securities and
analyzing industry trends.
If you see your adviser
glad-handing at public


functions every day or
vacationing for months
at a time, someone else is
probably managing your
money. Who that "some-
one",is and if they actually
have your goals and risk
tolerance and best inter-
ests in mind is another
good question you may
want to ask.

Man gets life
for robbery that
killed siblings
- TAMPA -ATampa
Bay-area man has been
sentenced to life in prison
for participating in a rob-
bery that left two teenage
siblings dead..
A Hillsborough County
judge sentenced 21-year-
old Charles Waits on
Friday. Helwas convicted
last month of two counts
of first-degree murder, two
counts of armed robbery
and one count of armed
burglary.
Authorities say 16-year-
old Kiara Brito and 13-
year-old Jeremi Brito were
found shot in the head at
their home inJune 2011.-
Waits testified that
another man, Tavari Grant,
was the one who killed
them. Waits said he took
Grant to the home only to
buy marijuana from Kiara,
but Grant forced Waits at
gunpoint to help commit
the robbery. Waits said he
fled before the siblings
were shot.
Prosecutors dropped
charges against Grant,
citing insufficient evi-
dence. But Grant remains
in prison on unrelated
convictions.

Second twin dies
after pregnant
mother fatally shot
ORLANDO.- Authori-
ties say a second twin has
died after a 33-year-old
Orlando man allegedly
shot and killed his wife,
who was eight months
pregnant with twins.
Nlichael Boyce ini-
tially told Orange County
sheriff's deputies when he
was arrested last week that
Alexis Boyce shot herself
in the head, but later said
he accidentally shot her.
The mother and one of the
babies were pronounced
dead on the day of the
shooting. The surviving
twin died Thursday night.
Boyce made his first
court appearance Satur-
day. Authorities said he
now faces a third charge of
first-degree murder in the
deaths of his 23-year-old
wife and babies.
Deputies say the victim's
parents were in their bed-
room when the shooting
occurred last week.

Rising seas threaten


Florida's future
The word "'resilience" got a.serious workout at the
fifth Southeast Florida Regional Climate Lead-
ership Summit in Fort Lauderdale last week.
EPA Deputy Administrator Bob Perciasepe used it to
describe the type of cleaner energy production needed
in the country to reduce heat-producing emissions and
also as an objective for South Florida in dealing with
the inevitable rise of sea level as the Earth heats up.
Addressing elected officials, business leaders and the
public, Mr. Perciasepe rightly praised South Florida
leaders for creating a four-county alliance to develop
ways to prepare and protect the region as the sea rises
over the next 50 years; an increase that could be in
inches or feet, depending on various contributing fac-
tors. Broward, Miami-Dade, Monroe and Palm Beach
counties have a lot to lose if the sea level rises even
three or four inches over five decades.
Billions of dollars worth of public infrastructure, pri-
vate businesses, residents' homes and more are at risk,
not just for frequent flooding, but also outright inunda-
tion and destruction.
But as chronicled this week in several Herald articles
and WLRN radio reports, the public battle to prepare
for rising seas is still in its infancy in this region and not
more than a blip on the radar in the state Capitol. Peo-
ple still want to live along the water. Developers, with a
few exceptions, keep building condos with waterfront
views and politicians who reject the very idea of climate
change are still getting elected.
Yet, there are glimmers of progress. In itself, the ex-
istence of the four-county climate leadership alliance,
which represents 5.6 million residents, is encouraging.
So are burgeoning education programs to teach chil-
dren in South Florida about the .effects of globalwarm-
ing in their lifetimes, whittling the climate-change..
skeptics over time.
No one is yet seriously talking about retreating from
the coastline, but they should be. In 50 years, certainly
in a century, scientist predict that our coast simply
won't be there anymore. We need to prepare, now, to
become resilient to endure and prevail in the
future.

Scripps Howard News Service



The real JFK


conspiracy
T he presidency of John E Kennedy, and especially
its abrupt and brutal ending, seems an inex-
haustible source of conspiracy theories the
grassy knoll, the mob, Cuban assassins, a second
shooter, a cabal of right-wing Texas oilmen. As soon as
one theory is debunked another comes alorfg to restart
the conspiracy machine.
However, one conspiracy is real: John Kennedy was
a very sick manLat'times a physical and psychological..
cripple, and Kennedy and his aides conspired might-
ily to cover up his ailments on the not unreasonable
grounds that had they been known Richard Nixon
would probably have won the election.'
Kennedy ingested a veritable pharmacy of medicines,
as many as eight at once, to keep going codeine,
Demerol and methadone for pain; hydrocortisone and
testosterone to make up for an adrenal insufficiency
caused by Addison's disease; antidiarrheal drugs;
steroids for strength and colitis; procaine injections for
back spasms; medicine to lower his abnormally high
cholesterol levels; antibiotics for periodic infections;
Ritalin and Librium for anxiety; barbiturates for sleep;
and antihistamines for allergies.
And these are only-from the few medical records that
have been released and the relative handful of doc-
tors and historians who have been allowed to examine
them. His medical records are closely guarded by a
three-member panel of Kennedy loyalists and the panel
members have been very sparing of access.
Misrepresenting, concealing and downright lying
about a president's health problems is almost a4 old
as the White House itself. The severity ofWoodrow.
Wilson's stroke in his second term was known only to a
'few close advisers; in the pre-TV days many Americans
were unaware that Franklin Roosevelt could not walk;
Dwight Eisenhower and Lyndon Johnson similarly suf-.
fered from heart attacks downplayed by their staffs; and
it was only years later that the public found out how' ,
close Ronald Reagan came to dying from a would-be
,assassin's bullet. ;
in a remarkable display of stoicism, determiation',
and self-control, Kennedy performed his public' 'duties
unflinchingly even though as one internal medicine
specialist observed, "The most remarkable thing was
the extent to which Kennedy was in pain every day of
his presidency."
The leader of an administration that promoted a
bustling can-do style and whose watchword was "vigor"
could not put a sock or shoe on his left foot unaided.
And that was the Kennedy conspiracy.

The Republican court-unpacking scheme


BYCOKIE ROBERTS AND
STEVEN V. ROBERTS

Patricia Ann Millett
spent 15 years as a
Justice Department
lawyer, seven of them'
under the second Presi-',
dent Bush. She argued 32
cases before the Supreme
Court, another 36 before
appellate courts, and in
2004 she was given the
department's Distin-
guished Service Award
by a Republican attorney
general.
After President Obama
nominated her for a seat
on the D.C. Circuit Court
of Appeals earlier this
year, prominent, con-
servative lawyers like Ken-
neth Starr endorsed her
candidacy. At her Senate
hearing, Ted Cruz praised
her "very fine professional
credentials."
.But last month, Cruz
and other Senate Repub-
licans staged a filibuster
that blocked her nomina-
tion;- This is an outrage.
Yes, politics have always
infected judicial selec-.
tions, and yes; Democrats
have harassed pleniy
of Republican'-oml-


nees over the years..But
the rejection of Millett,
and three other Obamna
nominees.for the D.C.
Circuit' goes far beyond'
the legitimate exercise of
minority rights.
Elections have conse-
quences. And for all presi-
dents, one of their most'
lasting legacies is their ap-
pointments to the federal
courts, .Obama won a sec-
ond term last year,., learly
and'decisively.Ye if this
critical area, Repubdlcansl
are trying to deny the
public will, to overturn
the results of that elec-
tion. That's un-American
and unprecedented.
The D.C. Circuit is often
called the second-most
powerful court in the
country It adjudicates
many consequential
disputes between govern-,
ment and business, and
four of the nine justices
now serving on the Su-
preme Court came from
its ranks.
The real reason for the
Republican rejection of,
Millett and the others
'Is obvious. Right now.
the.eight sitting mem-
bers oflheflleC. Circuit


are evenly divided: four,
named by Republicans,
four by Democrats. Three
seats are open, and any,
additional judge would
disturb the partisan bal-
ance. (Since five of the,
six senior judges, who-
still hear cases, were ap-
pointed by Republicans,
conservatives actually'
have a working majority.)
Republicans, of course,,
deny crass political mno-I
ties. They are blocking
Obama's nominees, they'
say, because the court is
underworked and doesn't
need more judges. Sen.
Charles Grassley even
accuses Obama of "court-
packing," as if filling
vapant seats is somehow
illegitimate.
This is simply a lie. It
ranks with the GOP argu-
ment that they favpr voter
ID laws to prevent voter
fraud. That's a lie, too.
In both cases,'their mo-
tives are pure power poli-
tics and everyone knbws
it. If anyone is guilty of
"court-packing," it's the
Republicans. Or "court-
unpackirg," to be precise,
since they're reducing the
number of-Democratic


judges to obtain favorable
rulings.
Again, let's be clear.
Democrats are not blame-
less. They have certainly-
helpedinflame the judi-
cial wars. But there is a
difference.
For one thing, Republi-
cans are far more tena-
cious than the Democrats
in blocking judicial nomi-

WebsiteWo-es impact Obamacare opinion

work, that is, just about all of
them lately- In states which have
set up their own Affordable Care
Act marketplaces, enrollment is
proceeding apace. Indeed, me-,
dia.melodrama about "Obama's'
Katrina" and similar formulations
appears paradoxically to have
reminded people that dependable
health insurance is at last available
to them and their families.
Not only doesn't the political sky
seem to be falling, but, according
to the Los Angeles Times, signups
in California during the first two
weeks of November doubled those
for the month of October. Sev-
eral other states are also showing
strong enrollment growth. The
governors of Washington, Con-
necticut arnd Kentucky co-signed
a Washington Post column about
how they're making the law
work.
The indispensible Kevin Drum
draws a preliminary conclusion:
'"It really is all about the website
,! The bottom line is the Republican
Party's worst nightmare: Once '
Obamacare has beenup and run-
ning for awhile, it's going to be
pretty popular ... Just get the damn,
website working."
A commenter to Drum's blog

they've turned me down for in the
past even though I've never had a
serious disease or been hospital-
ized. Don't drink, doh't smoke,

If you were over 50 in, the pre-ACA
days, it was next to impossible to
get a policy."
A plant? Could be. Trolls are
everywhere on the Internet. The
fellow could be a Democratic op-
erative typing an approved script.
However, it's definitely true that
the Affordable Care Act makes it


possible to buy health insurance
without first proving that yotfuprob-
ably won't need it. Also vanishing is
the concept of "rescission," where,
say, a breast cancel diagnosis can
trigger an investigation aimed at
voiding your policy.
The portability of coverage under
the ACA is also going to give people
the enhanced economic.liberty
Republicans always say people
should have although what
they usually mean in practice is
-absolute freedom'for corporations
while you keep quietly doing as
you're told.
Lost your job? Well, you haven't
lost your health care.
Of course Republican trolls are
everywhere, too. Maybe the most
amusing thing about the Wash-
ington media hullaballoo over
the president's Big Lie was how it
reprised George W Bush's greatest
hits. Was the health care debacle
"Obama's Katrina," Obama's "Mis-'
sion Accomplished," or "Obama's
Iraq"?
Fix the website, and the political
problem fixes itself.

Medic's healing journey leads to FIU

The Associated Press ** ''


MIAMI Staff Sgt. Vic-
tor Arvizu has spent 20
years as a U.S. Army com-
bat medic from the
Middle East to the South
Pacific. He has pulled
glass shards from soldiers'
chests and taken blood
samples. He has inserted
chest tubes and sutured'
wounds.
Today, he tends to retired
soldiers as a health tech at
the Veterans Administra-
tion clinic in Pembroke
Pines.
But he has long had am-.
bitions of doing more. 'All
along I've wanted to be a
nurse," he said of an as-
piration that crystallized
into determination during
a 2004 stint in Iraq. There
he saw nurses knowledge-
able about medicine sol-
dier alongside doctors at
a combat hospital inside
Baghdad's Green Zone.
Now, Arvizu, 38, is wind-
ing up his career with a
Florida National Guard
unit and getting ready to.

friend. She made the
dress, too.
Her buddy wound up
wearing it on stage for
a performance, just be-
fore she joined a big-time
group that had its own
big-time designers., That
friend was Jean Terrell,
tapped to become lead
singer for the Supremes,
after the legendary Diana
Ross moved on to a solo
career.
As Terrell's friend, Giles
rubbed shoulders with
some the greats on the
1970s music scene after
the singer hit the big time.
Al Green was a frequent
presence in her life and
she had a huge crush on
him.
When someone clued
Green in on this, he
said, 'Aw, she's just a kid,'
Giles remembered. At 90
pounds, quite short, and
skinny as a rail at the time,
Giles was too young-look-
ing for him to consider as
a potential girlfriend. She
was shattered when she
heard Green thought of
her as a kid, but that didn't
diminish her crush. It last-
ed for years, she said, and
the memory of him still
brings a smile..
Giles lived several years
.in California, learning
the dry cleaning business
at her workplace, where
she had been hired as an
intake clerk greeting cus-
tomers as they brought
their clothes in and picked
them up. But from the
start, she was fascinated by
what was going on in the
background as other em-
ployees cleaned, repaired
and altered clothes and
other fabric-based items.
She asked. her boss if she
could go' back and learn
somethingg from them.

Arvizu is a case in point:
Nursmg students start out
at FIU learning to start an
intravenous line in a rkian-
nequin. Long before he
deployed to the Combat
Support Hospital in the
Green Zone in 2004, Arvi-
zu had already passed the
test of putting in an IV on
a live person. In the dark.
"The fact that they've
traveled the world and
bring a global health
perspective is amazing,"
says FIU nursing profes-
sor Maria Olenick, who
won a $1.3 million federal
grant to run the program
from 2014 until 2018 with
the goal of graduating 90
veteran medics as nurses
over the next four years.
"These guys are back
and they're highly skilled,"
she says. "Why let them
get around as transporters
and phlebotomists? These
guys could work in critical


care, emergency rooms.
they're amazing."
.The Veteran Bachelor's
of Science in Nursing pro-
gram, whose first class will
begin in January is not
meant to make the older
world travelers start from
scratch. Rather, the grant
lets FIU provide coun-
seling and a special sec-
tion to give the veterans
credit for past classes and
life experience, assess-
ing and "refreshing" their
skills while filling in the
gaps with formal
education.
In the case of Arvizu, he
has been taking classes to-
ward a bachelor's degree
between deployments.
Once he and his wife, a
former Army medic al-
ready turned' nurse, set-
tled in South Florida five
years ago, the goal seemed
more achievable.
Then he read in a vet-
erans chat room, about
the nascent FIU program,


,found Olenick, and was
accepted as the very first
student ina class that will,
for the most part, segre-
gate the vets from the typ-
ical four-year students.
Veterans who served
honorably and for at least
three years get 100 percent
of their tuition covered, a
$1,950 monthly housing
stipend plus $1,000 a year
for books and supplies,
said Michael Pischner,,
director of FlU's Office
of Veteran and Military
Affairs.
Combat medics-tumed-
nurses might find work in
emergency rooms deal-
ing with, trauma cases.:
But Olenick envisions this
class of nurses could "help
to alleviate the nursing,
shortages all over - for
example, in veterans hos-
pitals and clinics because
"veterans need a special-
'ized kind of care, someone
who's empathetic to what
they've been through."


DEBORAH BUCKHALTER/F1QRIDAN
Chris Giles considers her strategy in repairing this muchbloved stuffed animal a customer


brought her to save.
Giles found her niche.
She was absorbed by ev-
ery aspect the steam, the
press, the hum of sewing
machines, the manual
needlework, the feel of the
fabric in her hands.
She learned all she could
at work, and converted a
closet in her home into
a sewing room. She con-
stantly sewed for other
people at home. Years lat-
er, when she moved to At-
lanta, she opened her own,
dry-cleaning store. Chris
Cleaners thrived in the
Georgia city that sizzled'
with its reputation as a hot
spot for entrepreneurs.
She had built it into a
profitable business when,
10 years ago, she came to
a realization that would
bring her back home.
Concerned about her
aging parents, she knew
she had to move back and
take care of them.
Soon after her return
home, she opened Giles
Cleaners next door to Mc-
Daniel's grocery store in
Sneads. It was six years old
and going extremely well
there when her husband's


heart transplant forced her
to close up shop and tend
to him. That pause would
turn into a two-year hia-
tus from the business. But
about a year ago, with his
health much. improved,
she opened back up. And
once her old custom-
ers knew she was back in
business, the flow of traf-
fic through her. door im-
mediately commenced.
Giles still misses life
in the big city, but she's
proud that her reputa-
tion was strong enough to
draw her customers back
in so thoroughly, even af-
ter a two-year absence.
She has three part-time
employees and a best
friend who volunteers her
time there. She still dreams
of owning a shop with all-
new equipment from the
start; most of her current
pieces came with the terri-
tory when she bought into
her existing business.
She toys with the idea
of moving back to bigger
places someday, but 'is
unsure if she's really will-
ing to pull up stakes again.
It's an idea perhaps for the


future, but for, now and
the foreseeable tomorrow,
she's content to stay put
and serve a community
that still includes some
of the people she knew in
childhood.
When an old-timer
comes in, the visit might
recall for her the years
she spent as a youngster
making dolls from shreds
of cotton and sections of
flour sacks, and the clothes
she made them from scrap
fabric she found in her en-
terprising mother's stack
of discards as she stitched
clothing for the family.
On any given business
day, she can often be
found in the little room
next to her intake desk,
toiling away at a sewing
machine or bent close
to send needle through
fabric in a hand-sewn
repair so expert that her
customers will find it dif-
ficult or impossible to find
the weld between original
condition and her repair.
It's a field of expertise
she's proud of, and one
that keeps her customers
coming back for more.

Bail set for teens in gang rape


The Associated Press
FORT LAUDERDALE,
A South Florida judge
has set bail for two teenage
girls accused of taking part
in the gangtape of another
girl, which the attackers
allegedly videotaped with
cellphones.
Fifteen-year-old Patri-
cia Montes and 16-year-
old Erica Avery are both
charged as adults with
felony armed sexual as-
sault and kidnapping. The
Miami Herald reports that
Broward Circuit Judge Uisa
Porter set bail Thursday at
$100,000 for each girl even
as she described the attack
as exceedingly brutal.
"The conduct of these


ladies is depraved, it is
just unconscionable that
people can treat each other
like this," Porter said. "Vid-
eos don't lie and the video
is there."
It wasn't clear when they
might be released, and one
girl's attorney said her fam-
ily might have difficulty
raising even the 10 percent
required for bail. They have
not entered pleas.
Prosecutors say the pair
and three others invited
the 16-year-old victim to
a house, where they alleg-
edly pinned her down and
began punching and kick-
ing her. Authorities say the
group refused to stop until
the girl agreed to have sex
with a 19-year-old man.


Authorities say the victim
refused but was eventually
raped anyway, an act not
depicted on the video. The
other three alleged assail-
ants are face sexual assault
and kidnapping charges.
The mothers of Montes
and Avery both described
them as good girls who
would not take part in such
a crime. Avery has a history.
of petty theft, authorities
say, and Montes was re-
cently arrested for mari-
juana possession.
Niontes' mother, Patricia
Dalecky, said her daughter
was not a troublemaker.
"I don't know where it
came from, but this is not

said.

Archaeology group ponders Civil War mystery


The Associated Press

JACKSONVILLE It's
a nothing-special grass
parking lot in LaVilla, on
the edge of downtown. But
the members of a fledgling
group called the Cowford
Archaeological Research
Society see it as something
quite grand.
To them, 'this nonde-
script patch of land is be-
-ginning to look like the site
of a lost Union fort, built in
1864 just outside the city
walls of old Jacksonville.
They've dug, and they've
found intriguing items
from that era, including
what they say is a nicely
preserved shell casing for
a Spencer rifle, which was
used by Union troops.
Exciting stuff. But for
members of the mostly
amateur archaeological
group, there's a mystery
in the city's vast northern
marshes that they think
could be far older and even
more important. But it's
going to take bit of a hike
to get there.
This is some serious
jungle: Dean M. Sais and


George Burns, founders of
the Cowford group, handed
out plastic leg coverings, to
guard against snakebites.
There was extra water. Sais
went ahead, urging his four
companions to stay 10 me-.
ters apart: "If you hear me
yell Ow! run like hell.
That means yellow jack-
ets." Burns whacked away
with a machete.
The 20-minute walk
passed uneventfully,
though, apart from some
vines that trip and branch-
es that must be climbed
over or ducked under. And
soon, 'they were standing
by their discovery.
Right on the edge of one
of the 'countless marshes
in that area, it has four
earth and oyster-shell
walls, roughly rectangular,,
perhaps'6 feet high at its
highest. -
In one corner, there's an
opening. 'Could -it have
been a door, or is it just
natural erosion? Inside the
walls, the ground is low
and muddy, and trees are
growing up from the mud.
In all, it's about 115 by 80
feet.


Sais got a tip from a hiker
who told him about the
strange find in the woods.
After struggling through
mud and thick vegetation,
he saw it for himself.
The find intrigues Sais
and Burns, though they
drn't know what it is
- other than to say that
it's definitely man-made.
They can't know until more
research is done, and they
say they won't dig without
landowner permission.
And they, don't want to
publicize exact locations,
to prevent, unscrupulous
diggers from finding out.
,The Cowford Archaeo-
logical Research Society,
its founders say, wants to
do it right. "We're not just a
bunch of fly-by-night ama-
teurs," Burns said.
Burns is a registered pro-
fessional archaeologist,
with a master's degree in
the field from Colorado
State. Sais has worked for
decades as a contract ar-


thing quite mundane. But
they wonder: Could it be
the earthworks of a fort

Sais said. "We think we've

He can picture it: "They

Archaeologists dream of
such discoveries. And as

soldier's uniform button.
A fancy crystal handle and
nice ceramic pieces" that

drives the searchers, who
look past the humble park-

Civil War fort.

us to do for the next 10,000

Cocaine bust derails fledgling GOP congressman


The Associated Press

FORT MYERS From
the outset, U.S. Rep. 'Rey
Radel a brash and digi-
tally savvy darling of the
political right was deter-
mined to make a name for
himself. And so he has.
Just 10 months after be-
ing sworn in as a member
of Congress, the rookie Re-
publican-who supported
drug testing for food stamp
recipients and champi-
oned cuts in sheep-farm
subsidies, 'of all things -
pleaded .guilty to cocaine
possession, took a leave of
absence from politics and
checked into a' Naples re-
habilitation center: It was
his purchase of 3.5 grams
of cocaine from an under-
cover officer in Washing-
ton's Dupont Circle neigh-
borhood last month that
caused it all to unravel.
In a flash, an ambitious
lawmaker, known to few
outside southwest Florida
became America's "Co-
caine Congressman," the
first sitting member of
Congress to -be .charged
with a drug offense in more
than three decades.
"I hope, like family,
southwest Florida can.for-
give me for this. I've let
them down," Radel, 37,
said in an emotional late-
night press conference
Wednesday that marked
an embarrassing retreat
from public view. "But I do

House John Boehner, R-Ohio (far left), Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers, R-Wash. (left), and House
Majority Leader Eric Cantor, R-Va. (right), at a news conference following a GOP strategy
session.'


believe in faith, forgiveness
and redemption,"
The 'unseemly distinc-
tion of a drug arrest ,has
derailed a promising po-
litical career and divided
this quiet stretch of golf
courses and retirementt
communities with the
force of a 'hurri6cne. The
largest daily newspapers
and a growing number of
Republican leaders in the,
district, which includes the
Gulf Coast communities of
Fort Myers and Naples,' are
demanding his resigna-
tion. Potential challengers
are openly weighing pri-
mary bids. 'And late-night


talk show hosts are once
again focused on Florida.
"I can'twait forth School
House' Rock on how a bill
becomes a straw," cracked
Jon Stewart on "The Daily
Show."
Whether Radel remains a
politician or a punch line is,
an open question. His of-
fice hasn't answered ques-
tions from The Associated
Press since his-Wednesday
news conference.
On Thursday in down-
town Fort Myers, his name
elicited rolling eyes and
hearty chuckles. Asked
about Radel, several vot-
ers responded with one


word: "Cocaine."
"If he were a coke-head
kid working at McDonald's,
he'd be out of a job," said
Richard Bruehl, a retired
general contractor.
Others were,' more
supportive.
"We thought he was a re-
ally great guy to represent
us," said Carol Hess, a re-
tired business owner. "We
just hope he gets the rehab
he needs and comes back-
and continues for us."
In the House,, Radel
aligned himself with the
tea party caucus, support-
ing conservative measures,
including one to allow


states to drug-test recipi-
ents of food stamps.
One signature piece of
legislation was an amend-
ment to slash federal funds
for the National Sheep In-
dustry Improvement Cen-
ter, which gives grants to
sheep researchers, shear-
ers in training and sheep-
rancher associations. The
,amendment won enthu-
siastic support,, but Ithe
legislation to which it was
attached died.
His embrace of social
media made him a stand-
out in Congress. His Twit-
ter feed is filled with short
video clips, jokes and
running commentary on,
everything from "Obama-
care" to SkyMall, the in-
flight shopping catalog. A
self-described "Hip Hop
Conservative," he reviewed
a Jay-Z album via Twitter
and wrpte a column for
Buzzfeed about the power
of rap. (He dubbed Public
Enemy's "Fight the Power"
,a conservative anthem
"because I believe when
government expands it
becomes a ,political tool
meant to oppress.")
"This is where Republi-
cans need to step up to the
plate," he told the Naples
Daily News. "We need to get
with the times, and be able
to share a message cutting
across generational, ethnic
and cultural lines."
Radel was backed. by
district, county-. and state


GOP officials. He built a
reputation as an accessi-
ble congressman, devoted
to town halls and public
events.
Then, on Oct. 29, Radel
attempted to buy $250
worth of cocaine from an
undercover police offi-
cer in a Washington,' D.C.,
neighborhood.
According to court docu-
ments, federal agents con-
fronted the congressman
and he invited them to
his apartment, where he
turned over a vial of the
drug. A DEA official who
spoke on the condition,
of anonymity because he
was not authorized to re-,
lease details of the case in
his own name said Radel
was identified to authori-,
ties as a cocaine buyer by
his suspected dealer. Court
documents said the law-
maker had purchased the
drug on several previous
occasions.
For the next three weeks,
Radel didn't skip a beat. He
held a re-electipn fundrais-
er at a Naples country club,
continued to cast votes
and bashed "Obarnacare"
on TwitteL He did not tell
House leaders about the
bust until Tuesday, when
reporters broke the news
about the case.
On Wednesday, he
pleaded guilty to a misde-
meanor drug charge and
was sentenced to a year's
probation.

If government backs in-flight calls, will airlines?


The Associated Press

NEWYORK -The Feder-
al Communications Com-
mission might be ready to
permit cellphone calls .in
flight. But what about the
airlines?
Old concerns about elec-
tronics being a danger to
airplane navigation have
been debunked. And. air-
lines could, make some
extra cash charging pas-
sengers to call a loved, one
from 35,000 feet.. But that-
extra money might not be
worth the backlash from
fliers who view overly
chatty neighbors as an-
other inconvenience to go
along with smaller seats
and stuffed overhead bins.
!"Common courtesy goes
out the window when peo-
ple step in that metal tube,"
says James Patrick II, a fre-
quent flier from Newnan,
Ga. "You think the debates
and fistfights over reclining
the seat back was bad. Wait
until guys start slugging it
out over someone talking
too loud on the phone."
That's one of the reasons
the country's largest flight
attendant union has come
out against allowing calls
in flight. The' FCC is pro-
posing to lift an existing
ban, and airlines would
have to decide whether to


THEASSOCIATED PRESS
While the FAA is leaning towards allowing cellphone use during airplane flights, some fliers are
worried that chatty seatmates might make the experience worse than it 'already is.


let passengers make calls.
The ban would remain in
effect during takeoff and'
landing.
Delta Air Lines is the only
majqr airline to explicitly
state that voice calls'won't
be allowed on its flights,
even if the FCC allows it.
Delta says years of feed-
back from customers show
"the overwhelming senti-
ment" is to continue pro-
hibiting calls.
Other airlines aren't


as, firm.
United Airlines says that
if the FCC changes its rules,
"we will study it along with
feedback from customers
and crews." American Air-
lines has offered, a similar
approach. So has JetBlue,
which says it would "wel-
come the opportunity to
explore" voice calls but
"would prioritize making
the cabin comfortable and
welcoming for all."
Confused yet?


Well, to complicate mat-
ters even more, the airlines
actually don't need to wait
for the FCC. Yes, the, gov-
ernment would need to
remove the restriction for
you to make normal calls
in flight. But there are al-
ready plenty of ways to
make calls legally over air-
line Wi-Fi networks, while
keeping your phone in
"airplane mode.". The air-
lines just choose to block
such calls.


Just as many schools and
workplaces block access
to pornography websites,
airlines use similar filters
to block access to Skype
and other Internet calling
services.
Gogo Inc., .which pro-
vides Internet access on
American, Alaska Airlines,
Delta, United, US Airways.
and Virgin America flights,
recently announced a new
service for passengers to
send'and receive text mes-
sages or make phone calls
using Wi-Fi.
* "We-know that the talk
portion for' commer-
cial aviation is. not really
something airlines or their
passengers want," Gogo
spokesman Steve Nolan
says.
The talk function was
designed for private jets
and international airlines.
Most Middle East airlines
and a few in Asia and Eu-
rope already allow voice
calls on planes.
Gogo's chief competitor,
Global Eagle Entertain-
ment Inc.'s Row 44, will de-
but gate-to-gate text ser-
vice for $2 a flight on select'
Southwest Airlines aircraft
Monday.
Torn Wheeler, who be-
came the FCC's chairman
three weeks ago, issued a
statement Thursday saying


that "modern technologies
can deliver mobile services
in the air safely and reli-
ably and the time is right
to review our outdated and
restrictive rules." Travelers
protested to the agency
and on social media. On a
White House website, a pe-
tition opposing the FCC's
move attracted more than
1,800 signatures by mid-
day Saturday.
Wheeler backed off Fri-
day. H6 clarified that "air-
lines are best positioned"
to make ,decisions about
what's in the interests, of
passengers. The FCC's role
should just be to decide
what is safe or not, and
cellphone calls are safe, he
said.
"We understand that
many passengers would
prefer that voice calls not
be made on airplanes,"
Wheeler said. "I feel that
way myself."
Airline consultant Robert
Mann says airlines have
been using the FCC as an
excuse not to allow cell-
phone usd. He believes the
agency wants to get itself
out of the equation.
Airlines "ought to own up
to what the real issues are,"
Mann says. "They're not
technology. They're not
regulatory. It's a business
decision."

More late-game magic propels CHS past Northview and into state semis

COTTONDALE In a season that has
* often defied reason and logic, the latest
- chapter in the Cottondale Hornets' magi-
cal postseason run may have been the
most memorable of all.
Facing a 10-point second-half deficit
for the second straight week, the Hornets
rallied late to knock off the defending IA
state champion Northview Chiefs on Fri-


day night to improbably advance to the
state semifinals.
Norris Calhoun rushed for 191 yards
on 34 carries and three touchdowns and
scored the game-winner with 41.7 sec-
onds left to lift the Hornets to a 34-28 vic-
tory that once again left theiricoach mar-
veling at their ability to beat the odds.
"This is just the closest team and the
toughest team that I've been around,"
said Mike Melvin, who has taken the
Homets farther than they've ever been


in his 161h and final season as coach. 'Are
we the most talented team out there? No,
but these guys have the biggest hearts
I've ever seen."
After erasing a 16-6 deficit in last
week's 28-23 win over previously un-
defeated Baker by scoring three fourth
quarter touchdowns, the Hornets had to
come back from 22-12 down at halftime
Friday.

Lady Bulldogs have winning streak snapped by Catholic


BY SHELIA MADER
Floridan Correspondent
The Marianna High
School Lady Bulldogs had
their four-match winning
streak snapped at home
Thursday night, falling to a
talented Pensacola Catho-
lic squad 2-1.
Catholic got both of its
goals in the first half, with
Marianna goalkeeper Val-
erie Sims recording 11 of
her 18 saves in a scoreless
second half.
Marianna's lone score
came on a throw-in by
Lexie Basford to Lauren
Canada, who passed to
Taniyah Robinson for the


shot on goal.
Following the game,
Marianna coach Scott
Wiggins said he could not
have been prouder of the
team.
"This was a total team ef-
fort from our whole team
and by far the best defen-
sive game we have had so
far this year," he said. "We
told the girls at half time
to leave everything on the
field. Our defenders play
one of the most impor-
tant positions on the field
and they receive the least
amount of glory. On our
team, we have strong and
fast defenders who are


capable of marking tough
strikers."
In the last five games,
Marianna has only allowed
three goals.
The Lady Bulldogs fell to
4-2 on the season with the
loss.
In the second game of
the evening, the Bulldogs
boys soccer team did not
fare as well, falling 6-0 to
Catholic.
The Bulldog, boys
dropped to 3-1-2 on the
year.
Marianna will be off for
Thanksgiving week before
resuming play the follow-
ing week.

Miami snaps slide, tops Virginia


The Associated Press

MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. Tracy
Howard knew exactlywhat was com-
ing. First play of the game, screen
pass, *something that has burned
Miami countless times in recent
weeks.
He guessed right.
And with that, the tone was set for
a redeeming day for Miami and its
maligned defense.
Howard returned an interception
.19 yards for a touchdown a mere 6
seconds after kickoff, the first of four
turnovers that Miami turned into
touchdowns, and the Hurricanes
snapped a three-game slide by beat-
ing Virginia 45-26 on Saturday to
remain alive in the Atlantic Coast
Conference race.
"Defense, I thought, really played
their tails off," Miami coach Al Gold-
en said.
Added Miami quarterback Ste-
phen Morris, on the defense: "They
were dominant."
Giving up 483 yards, 28 first downs,
11 third-down conversions and be-
ingon the field for nearly 38 minutes
Wouldn't seem dominant. But being
largely responsible for 28 points
more than made up for those num-
bers. David Gilbert had a 72-yard
fumble recovery for a touchdown,
and interceptions set up two drives
that Dallas Crawford capped with
touchdown runs for Miami (8-3, 4-3
Atlantic Coast Conference).
Morris passed for 214 yards and
two touchdowns in his home finale..
Allen Hums had 126 receiving yards
and a score and Stacy Coley had a
62-yard touchdown grab for Miami,
which got a huge momentum shift
late in the half when Ladarius Gunt-
er had an interception in the Miami
red zone. Gunter returned the ball 81
yards to the Miami 3, the Hurricanes
took a 21-13 lead three plays later on
Crawford's first score of the day, and

weren't in trouble agaihi.
"That's a good Miami team," Vir-
ginia coach Mike London said.
"They played well and they capital-
ized when they needed to and we'
didn't."
Taquan Mizzell caught a touch-
down pass and ran, for another,
while Kevin Parks ran for 130 yards
and a touchdown for Virginia (2-9,0-
7); whichhas dropped eight straight
and lost to 'Miami for the first time
in four years.;< Starting quarterback
David Watford completed 10 of 25
passes for 106 yards and a touch-
down, but 'was' intercepted three
times.
"It's. very frustrating," Parks said.
"I'd be lying if I said I wasn't frustrat-
ed right now. But we've got to make
more plays and be positive."
Gunter was carted off with 2:02
remaining dnd briefly hospitalized
while being evaluated for an up-
per-body injury.. He had a helmet-
to-helmet collision with Mizzell on
a play where the Cavaliers freshman
ran into the end zone from 7 yards
out, remained on his feet for a few
seconds, then fell to the ground.
Gunter was airlifted to Jackson


Memorial Hospital in Miami, then,
released later Saturday night. Gold-
en said Gunter was moving his ex-
tremities and alert, and teammates
said he was talking and joking with
them while he was down on the turf,
even as they kneeled around him.
"I told him he's still ugly," Rodgers
said. "Something to joke around, to
make sure he laughed."
,Hurricanes football spokesman
Chris Yandle said Gunter "will be
able to play footbaV again this sea-
son once he is fully healed."
Miami had allowed at least 40
points in each of its last three games,
plus lost cornerbacks Corn Elder
and Nate Dortch to injuries that
Golden said afterward he feared
were "significant."
But the fretting over secondary
depth can resume Sunday. This win,
the Hurricanes said, was for their se-
niors, especially after all they went
through over 2-1/2 years of dealing
'with an NCAA investigation.
"I think we should be remembered
as a group that stuck together," Mor-
ris said. "We fought through a lot and
we're having one of the best seasons
a Miami team has had in a decade."

Winston, a Heisman Tro-

just one series ,in the sec-
ond half:
The Semninoles have
dominated throughout the
season, but 66 points Was
the largest margin of victoL-
ry since a 69-3 win against
Murray State in the. 2012
season opener.
Devonta Freeman
opened up the scoring with
a 60-yard run on their sev-
enth offensive snap of the
game. That was thebegin-
ning of the punishing day
for a run game that posted
336 yards rushing. He had
129 yards on 11 carries as
the entire backfield got
loose.
James Wilder Jr. carried
an entire possession on his
back in .the second quar-
ter. He capped a five-play,


85-yard drive with a 1-
yard touchdown with 5:54
left in the second quarter.
Wilder carried the ball on
four of those five plays and
accounted for every yard.
Karlos Williams added 114
yards and two touchdowns
on 10 carries.
Kenny Shaw recorded his
first 100-yard game of the
season in the last home
game of his career. He fin-
ished with 107 yards and
two touchdowns on five re-
ceptions. Kelvin Benjamin


hauled in two touchdowns
on his three receptions
and now has a touchdown
in six of his last seven
games.
The Vandals (1-10) were
never competitive and that
began at the line of scrim-
mage. They had no answer
for nose guard Timmy
Jernigan and couldn't
create running lanes or
protect the quarterback.
Jernigan had a team-high
6 tacles, including 4 1/2
for loss and a season-high
2,1/2 sacks.
Taylor Davis threw for
220 yards and a touch-
down, but three intercep-
tions turned into 14,points
for Florida Siate. Lineback-
er Telvin Smith returned
one of the interceptions 79
yards for a score in the sec-
ond quarter. The Seminoles
have now scored 'a non-of-
fensive touchdown in three
consecutive games.
Idaho managed just 59
rushing yards and threw
four interceptions. Dez-

Thursday night at home,
knocking off the Vernon

"Madison was pretty

through her," Graceville
coach Jon Habali said after
the.game. "She's just play-
ing great basketball right
now. And you can see the
confidence in the other

well. Cristina Ramirez is
doing a great job handling
the ball, and Alexis Wil-

The Lady Tigers won go-

of one of their top scorers
'in sophomore wing player

Robinson was being

Unpredictable Dolphins facing surgin Carolfina


The A4 located Press
MIAMI GARDENS With rain in
the forecast one afternoon this week,
the Miami Dolphins practiced indoors
and emerged to find the sun shining.
"Our weather forecast was right on,"
coach Joe Philbin observed facetious-
ly. "As usual."
Everything about the Dolphins
this season has been unpredictable.
They won at first-place Indianapolis
and lost at home against last-place
Buffalo. They lost to winless Tampa
Bay and beat first-place Cincinnati.
They're mired in a bullying scandal
that threatens to sink the season, but
they've won two of three games since
tackle Jonathan Martin left the team
complaining of daily harassment.
Despite a so-so defense, a feeble of-
Afense and questions about the locker
room culture, the Dolphins (5-5) find
themselves in the thick of the AFC
wild-card race heading into Sunday's
game against surging Carolina (7-3).
The Panthers are coming offa thrilling
Monday night win over New England,
and they're favored to extend their
winning streak to seven games, which
would be their longest since 2003.


Five things to consider
n Winning close games
Seven of the Dolphins' 10 games have been decided by four points or less,
including the past three.
"We've been in more four-or-less games than just about anybody in football
since the beginning of last year." Philbin said. "Why we end up in that spot you
could debate. But the fact of the matter is we are in a bunch of close games, so
every snap is important. Every possession Is important. Minimizing mistakes is
'important. Playing penalty-free is important."
3 Cam vs. Cam
The~effort to contain Panthers quarterback CamNewton will be led by defen-
sive end Cameron Wake, who leads the Dolphins with 6'/2 sacks.
During the Panthers' winning streak, Newton has completed 67 percent of
his passes while throwing for 10 scores. and running for three.
) Deep ecoy
The self-proclaimed fastest player in the NFL can't get going.
Mike Wallace. who signed a $60 million. five-year contract when he joined
the Dolphins last offseason, has only one touchdown and is averaging a career-
low 12.1 yards per catch.
9 Ginn again
Ted Ginn Jr. will play in Miami for the first time since he left the Dolphins as a
first-round bust following the 2009 season. *
GinIncaught a 25-yard touchdown pass with 59 seconds left Monday to beat
the Paf riots.' ,
))Starting fast
Kickoff is at 1:05 p.m.. and the Dolphins had better be ready.
Carolina has outscored opponents 45-8 in the first quarter and 113-45 in the
first half.

Malone
From Page 1B
"Itwas pretty much aper-
fect half for him," Malone
coach Steven Welch said
of Johnson. "He played
his tail off. His teammates
were looking for him; he
got a couple of kick-outs
from Chai (Baker) in the
post and just shot it really
well. He got some pretty
good looks and he was
unconscious there for a
while."
His outburst sparked',a
big run that broke open a
relatively close game early,
with, Malone up just 8-4
five minutes into the game
before a 40-8 barrage
staked Malone to a 48-12
edge at the break.
Chai Baker/'added 20
points for the Tigers, who
improved to 2-0 to start
the year.
"We started out a little
slow and Bethlehem was
doing a good job of con-
trolling the clock and'
keeping us to one shot,"
Welch said. "We just had to
gather ourselves and then
we got a little burst of of-
fense. Chai and (Johnson)
hit a couple of big shots
and we just stretched it
out."
The Malone girls got a
much-needed victory af-

to Poplar Springs earlier

"We did it from'the get-

what we've been preach-7

Annie's Mailbox


Dear Annie: We host Thanksgiving din-
ner for my husband's family every year,
and I enjoy doing so, but I have a prob-
lem with my stepson's wife. They have
not lived together for almost three years,
but they still travel together regularly,
including visits home.
I have continued to include her, as well
as her three children (all from previous
relationships) in every invitation for the.
holidays. She never responds. Most of
the time, they don't come. But occasion-
ally, they show up two or three hours
past dinnertime. I can make adjust-
merits for a couple of unexpected guests,'
but not for five people who are that late.
I would like to tell her that if I don't
hear fromn her, she should not come at
all, but my husband saysthat would
hurt his son's feelings. What do you
think? -.
LAST-MINUTE HOSTESS
Dear Last Minute: If all five of them are
coming late; itdncludetyour stepson,
no? So why is this the wife's fault? Is your
stepson incapable of using a telephone?
Here's our suggestion: If you don't
hear from anyone in this family before
the holiday, call your stepson and ask
whether they are planning to come. (If
you prefer, call his wife directly.) Start
your dinner on time, and if they show up
two hours late, say, "How nice to see you!
I-had no idea you were coming. There
are extra plates in the kitchen. Help
yourself." Be gracious and welcoming,
but don't drive yourself crazy for people
who are too rude to show up at a reason-
able hour.

Dear Annie: I have two children whose
birthdays are a day apart. My youngest
was a year old a week ago, and my older
child turned 3 the next day. I am really'
hurt because my family did not acknowl-
edge the baby on his birthday.
Our family's tradition is to call on the
actual birthday and send a gift in the
1164H. This year, no,gifts were sent to -
either.child, and only the 3-year-old re-
ceived any phone calls. No mention was


made of a gift "oni the way" or of the fact.
that the baby turned 1 the day before.
I am not concerned about the gifts.
But am I wrong to be upset that my 1-
year-old was not even a thought? I can
understand that people are' too busy to
call two days in a row, but isn't it proper
to call for the child who celebrates first?
I always send gifts for a child's birthday
and follow up with a phone call. Should
I stop? Can you print this and blast them
for being rude so I can mail them a copy?
I 1 -MOMMY
Dear Mommy No, but we will suggest
you change your expectations. Kids
*whose birthdays coincide with another
sibling's, a major holiday or other event
often get shortchanged. We agree that
the relatives should not have ignored
your younger child when calling for the
older.But your older child can speak-
on the phone and understand what the
call is for. The baby cannot, and ,that is
probably what prompted the neglect.
But whether or not they phone, you
should continue to do so. Don't punish
the children because their parents are
'inconsiderate or forgetful.

Dear Annie: "Unwilling" said he has a
major problem with his parents' 40th
anniversary celebration because they',
want a white-sweatshirtiphoto. OMG!
Both of my parents have Alzheimer's.
Because of trauma from alcoholism,
abuse and mental illness, my immedi-
ate family has not been together in one'
place for 40 years. Get over it, "Unwill-
ing." You are supremely blessed to all
still be alive and able to-celebrate being -
a family. Enjoy. Be grateful.'Let go.

Bridge


Many years ago, my then partner,
David. Greenwood, and-I discussed grand
slams. These are major point winners
and losers. We knew that mbst authori-
ties ripommend leading a trump against
a grand. It is assumed that a pair will not
bid seven unless its trump suit is solid.
So, to. avoid giving away a trick, a trump
lead has to be safe.
We decided that we could cash in on
this. We agreed to bid seven if we knew
the only missing key-card was the trump
queen. Then, if the lead was a trump, it
>would pick up the queen for us; if the '.
lead was from a side suit, we would play
the opening leader for the trump queen.
We went three for three, and this was
playing against internationals, not be-
ginners. (We were using an early form of
Roman Key-Card Blackwood called Byz-
antine Blackwood, When we could find
out about the trump king and queen.);
The declarer in today's deal would have
benefited from joining our discussion.
South opened with a weak two-bid.
North used Blackwood, then jumped to
seven diamonds. (Yes, he might have bid
seven no-trump.)
.West led the heart jack. South knew
that with nine trumps, the odds favored
playing out the ace and king. So, he won
with his heart queen, played a trump to

Uhen they come back with their red marbles, and they
ilWays do, he decides he doesn't like red after all and
iesends them home with a bag of produce for a green
narble or an orange one, *hen they come on their next
trip to the store.' W,

I left the store smiling to myself, impressedt with- this
man. A short time later I moved to Colorado but I never
forgot the story of this man, the boys, and their bartering
for marbles. I

Several years went by, each more rapid than the previous
one. Just recently I had occasion to visit some old friends
in that Idaho community and' while I was there learned
that Mr. Smith had died. They were having his visitation
that evening and knowing my friends wanted to go, I
agreed to accompany them. Upon arrival at the mortuary
we fell into line to meet the relatives of the deceased, and
to offer whatever words of comfort we could.

Ahead of us in line were three young men. One was in an
army uniform and the other two wore nice haircuts, dk
suits and white shirts...all very professional looking.
they approached Mrs. Smith, standing composed and
smiling by her husband's casket.

'Not zackley but almost.'

'Tell you what. Take this sack of peas home with you
p"Iand next trip this way let me look at that red marble'. Mr.
'ISmith told the boy.

: ^Surb will. Thanks Mr. Smith.

Y Mrs Snith, who had been standing nearby, came over to

W with a smile she said, 'There are two other boys like him in
our community, all three are in very poor circumstances.

Each of the young men hugged her, kissed her on the
cheek, spoke briefly with her and moved on" to the
casket. Her misty light blue eyes followed them as, one.-
by one; each young man stopped briefly and placed his ,
own warm hand over the cold pale hand in the casket.
Each left the mortuary awkwardly, wiping his eyes.

Pur turn came to meet Mrs. Smith. I told her who I was
and reminded her of the story from those many years ago
and what she had told me about her husband's bartering
for marbles. With her eyes glistening, she took my hand
and led me to the casket.

'those three young men who just left were the boys I told
y6u about.

They just told me how they appreciated the things Jim
'traded' them. Now, at last, when Jim could not change
his mind about color or size;...they came to pay their
debt.'

'We've never had a great deal of the wealth of this world,'
she confided, 'but right now, Jim would consider himself
the richest man in Idaho..'

With loving gentleness she lifted the lifeless fingers of
her deceased husband. Resting underneath Were three
exquisitely shined red marbles.
