Search is on for missing woman


From staff reports

AWestville woman remained miss-
ing Monday after she was seen walk-
ing back and forth on a bridge in
Homes County Saturday night. Au-
thorities continue to search for 26-
year-old Cynthia Katrice Johnson.
According to a press release from
the Holmes County Sheriff's office,
deputies were called to the Choc-
tawhatchee River Bridge around


8:40 p.m. by a witness who said the
woman had been walking on the
bridge for an extend-
ed period of time.
The officers couldn't

rived, but did locate
several personal items
on top of a weather
Johnson service river-read-
ing box affixed to the
bridge, items they believe may be-


long to Johnson. They also found
a car on the Holmes County end of
the bridge which belonged to John-
son. Authorities say it did not appear
to be disabled, and that some of
Johnson's personal belongings were
found inside it.
Her family told investigators they
hadn't been able to contact her since
the previous evening.

themselves on iden-

Below are tips to avoid identity
theft and tax fraud;
) File tax returns early. The IRS
will reject a return if one is al-
ready filed with that Social Security
number;
)) Ask for credentials of the
tax preparer, and ask if he or she
belongs to a state board or bar
association that requires continuing
education;
) Do not provide your Social Secu-
rity number unless it -is required;
) Do not carry your Social Security
card or write it on checks;
) Shred financial documents and

) Be wary of providing sensitive in-
formation via the Internet;
))Do not respond to emails asking
for information relating to tax re-
funds. The IRS website is the legiti-
mate source for checking on refund
status;
) Check your credit report every 12
months.

Dr. Robert Hoff and Dr.
Nikom Arunakul have
been friends ever since
both of them set up their
practices in Marianna
back in 1976. Hoff, afam-
ily physician, and Arunak-
ul, a surgeon, hit it off at
once, and they became
close over the years.
They're so close now, in
fact, that Hoff flew with
Arunakul to Thailand last
month to attend the wed-
ding of Arunakul's niece.
Their 15-hour connecting


flight to Seoul aboard a
huge 500-passenger Air-
bus would prove eventful.
The two men had never
practiced together on the
ground in Marianna; but
midflight, thousands of
miles from home, they
did.
It happened aboard
Korean Air.
The two men were sit-
ting side by side in busi-
ness class, 10 hours into
their flight, when they

From staff reports

A man and woman

BAY COUNTY

Lexus v~s. John Deere


From staff reports

A distracted Lexus driver
in Bay County rear-ended
a John Deere, leaving the
tractor with $100,000 in
damage.
The Florida Highway Pa-
trol reports that at 8 a.m. on
Monday near the intersec-
tion of LasVegas Street and
U.S. 231 in Youngstown, a
2007 Lexus RX350 driven
by John Roth Yates, 47, of
Panama City Beach, collid-
ed with a 2002 John Deere
tractor driven by James E.
Dodge, 38, of Panama City.
FHP's accident report
indicates that the Lexus
was traveling northbound
on U.S. 231 in the outside
lane, while the John Deere
was traveling northbound
on U.S, 231, straddling the
modified outside shoulder
and the outside lane.
The report says Yates be-
came distracted by inter-
nal elements within the ve-
hicle and failed to observe
the slow-moving tractor
ahead, causing the front of
Yates' Lexus to collide with
the rear of the John Deere.
Following the collision,


the Lexus rotated clock-
wise several times and
continued northbound
until coming to a final
rest in the median of U.S.
231, just north of the area
of collision, facing west.
The tractor was jettisoned
forward and onto its right
side, partially within the
outside lane and partially
on the east shoulder of
U.S. 231, also just north of
the area of collision.
FHP indicates that, prior
to the collision, Dodge's
tractor had all the neces-
sary precautionary signage
and lights that are required
for a slow-moving farm la-
bor vehicle.
The agency .,estimated
damages to the John Deere
at $100,000 and damages
to the Lexus at $10,000.
Both drivers are listed
as. having their seat belts
in use at the time of the
incident, but while no in-
juries were reported for
Yates, Dodge was taken to
Bay Medical for treatment
of minor injuries sustained
during the crash.
Yates was charged with

BCF Music,Worship division



receives nod for excellence


Special to the Floridan

Since 1997, The Baptist
College of Florida (BCF)
has been a member in
good standing of the
National Association of
Schools of Music (NASM),
the premier accrediting
agency for music schools
in colleges and universi-
ties. Membership means
that NASM acknowledg-
es and affirms that BCF
maintains the highest
of standards in musical
training for music-related
professions. In the case
of The Baptist College
of Florida, that includes
worship leadership, mu-
sic education, and music
performance..
BCF has just received
word from NASM that
in addition to the un-
dergraduate degree pro-
grams in music, the Mas-
ter of Arts in Music and
Worship Leadership has
now been approved. Ac-
cording to Bill Davis,
Chair of the BCF Music
and Worship Division,
this places BCF as one
of very few institutions
in the country with an
NASM approved master's
degree in music and wor-
ship that is delivered

within a hybrid environ-
ment (combination of
classroom and distance
learning).
"Throughout the his-
tory of The Baptist Col-
lege of Florida, our Music
and Worship program has
filled a vital role," reflect-
ed BCF Presideht Thomas
A. Kinchen at the NASM
announcement. "Our
alumni have served and
continue to serve with
distinction. The Master
of Arts in Music and Wor-


ship Leadership affords us
the opportunity to build
on this strong founda-
tion and prepare the indi-
viduals who will lead our
churches and schools in
the worship of our Lord..
I am absolutely delighted
that we can provide a pro-
gram that is excellent in
content and relevant in
application."
NASM membership
and approval gives confi-
dence to prospective BCF
students that they will


receive a nationally rec-
ognized music education.
It also assures employers
that a BCF graduate has
earned a degree from a top
quality music program.

Record rainfall may help Fla.'s oyster industry


The Associated Press

APALACHICOIA- Re-
cord rainfall may help the
Florida Panhandle's ailing
oyster industry. recover
from several years of wide-
reaching droughts.
Florida, South Caro-
lina and parts of Georgia
saw near-record rain-
fall in the last six months
of 2012 and throughout
2013, Florida State Cli-
matologist David Zierden
tells the Tallahassee Dem-
ocrat.
Researchers have
blamed the 2012 decline
of the oyster population,
in the Apalachicola Bay
on persistent droughts
from 2009 through 2012
throughout the Apala-
chicola-Chattahoochee-
Flint basin. Oyster har-


vest landings declined 60
percent over the last year,
resulting in a 44 percent
drop in revenue.
"We've had an unusual
amount of rainfall in the
drainage basin," Zierden
said. "So it certainly will
be beneficial to the recov-
ery of the estuaries and
the oyster fishery."
The rebound really
started in December
2012 as North Amer-
ica came out of a La
Nina weather pattern
that cast dry, cooler air
over the Southeast and
continued through the
past summer, Zierden
said. Helen, Ga., at the
headwaters of the basin,
which drains down to the
Apalachicola Bay, had
more than 101 inches of
rain last year.

Water flows through the
Jim Woodruff Dam into
the Apalachicola River
have been rising dramati-
cally, even prompting
flood warnings from the
National Weather Service
during the first week of
this year.
"If there are flood state-
ments being issued,"
Zierden said, "that's
a pretty good bet that
we're doing OK as far as
flows on the Apalachicola
go."
Karl Havens, the lead re-
searcher of the University
of Florida's Oyster Recov-


ery Team in the bay, said
the rising freshwater flows
are a promising sign, but
the oyster industry still
needs more efforts to
recover.
He said the re-shell-
ing of more than 1,000
acres 'of the bay floor
over the next five years is
needed to rebuild oyster
bars destroyed by hurri-
canes and predators that
thrive when freshwater is
lacking and saline levels
soar.
Illegal harvesting also
has strained the bay's
oyster population.

Scott: Boost spending to prevent child abuse


The Associated Press


TALLAHASSEE- Reel-
ing from a string of child
abuse-related deaths in the
last year, Gov. Rick Scott
wants to spend millions
in order to hire more than
400 additional investiga-
tors in the coming year.
Scott on Tuesdaywill out-
line a proposal to boost the
budget of the Department
of Children and Families.
by nearly $32 million. He
alsp wants an $8 million
increase for sheriff's de-
partments handling abuse
cases.
"While DCF has made
significant changes to
protect children, we still
have much to do to pro-
tect the most vulnerable
among us," Scott said in
a statement. "Even one
child's death is a death too
many."1
If approved by state
legislators during the an-
nual session that starts in
March, the funding would
reduce the caseloads of
child abuse investigators
to 10 cases each.
Scott's proposal also calls
for extra funding to al-
low for two-person teams
to handle cases involving
children the most at risk
of abuse. DCF has already


THEASSOCIATED PRESS
In this Oct. 2 photo, Florida Gov. Rick Scott speaks in Doral, Fla. Scott will outline a proposal
Tuesday to boost the budget of the Department of Children and Families by nearly $32 million.
He alse want an $8 million increase for sheriff's departments handling abuse cases.


launched a pilot program
with two-person teams
in Miami-Dade and Polk
counties.
The governor's budget
proposal also calls for
hiring additional state
workers to do reviews of
ongoing child abuse inves-
tigations, as well as reclas-
sifying 50 current positions
to higher-paid positions.
The move comes after the
state's child welfare system


has come under increased
criticism and scrutiny due
to a series of deaths in the
past year.
A report released in No-
vember said Florida was
failing in its efforts to pre-
vent child abuse deaths be-
cause welfare authorities
aren't picking up warning
signs in families at risk.
The report reviewed the
deaths of 40 children and
concluded that welfare


authorities who were in-
volved with the families
had overlooked danger
signs like drug abuse or
domestic violence. Most of
the children who died were
less than 5 years old.
The causes of death in-
clude suffocation, drown-
ing and physical abuse.
The most common cause
was suffocation or as-
phyxia where most of the
parents or caregivers. had


histories of drug abuse or
tested positive for drugs
following the child's death.
The budget recommen-
dations endorsed by Scott
mirror ones already sug-
gested by Interim DCF
Secretary Esther Jacobo.
"Armed with input from
national experts and data
to back up our proposals,
we are prepared to ensure
that these funds will be
laser-focused on protect-
ing children who are most
at-risk," Jacobo said in a
statement. "With Governor
Scott's steadfast support of
DCF initiatives to improve
child safety, I am confident
that these strategic invest-
ments will be made to keep
Florida's children safe."
In the wake of recent
deaths, Democrats last
month called on Scott to
shield DCF from any more
budget cuts. Scott said
last fall he planned to cut
spending by $100 million
in state agencies in 2014.
The Scott administra-
tion said Monday that the
governor also plans to rec-
ommend that funding for
,state subsidized substance
abuse and mental health
programs remain at cur-
rent levels because they
also help prevent child
abuse.


Ex-Fla. cop accused in fatal shooting over texting


The Associated Press

WESLEY CHAPEL An
argument over texting in
a Florida movie theater
Monday triggered a retired
Tampa police captain to
fatally shoot a man sitting
in front of him; as about
25 horrified moviegoers
looked on, sheriff's offi-
cials said.
"Somebody throws pop-
corn. I'm not sure who
threw the popcorn," said
Charles Cummings, who,
as a birthday treat, was
about to watch the movie
"Lone Survivor" at The
Grove 16 Theater.
"And then bang, he was
shot."
Curtis Reeves, 71, has
been charged with sec-
ond-degree murder and
it's not immediately clear
whether he has retained
an attorney.
Pasco County Sheriff's
officials said the shooting
happened when Reeves
asked 43-year-old Chad
Oulson to stop texting at
the theater in Wesley Cha-
pel, a suburb about a half
hour north of downtown
Tampa.


THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
Authorities stand outside Cobb theater after a shooting in
Wesley Chapel, Fla., Monday. Authorities say a retired Tampa
police officer has been charged with fatally shooting a man
during an argument over cellphone use at the theater.


Reeves and his wife were
sitting behind Oulson
and his wife. Oulson told
Reeves that he was testing
with his 3-year-old daugh-
ter, Cummings said.
"It ended almost as
quickly as it started," said
sheriff's spokesman Doug
Tobin. The sheriff's of-
fice says an off-duty Sum-
ter County deputy de-
tained Reeves until police
arrived.
Cummings and his son
Alex who both had


blood on their clothes as
they walked out of the the-
ater told a group of re-
porters Monday afternoon
that the show was still in
previews when the two
couples started arguing.
Cummings said the man
in the back row later
identified as Reeves got
up and left the auditorium,
presumably to get a man-
ager. But he came back af-
ter a few minutes, without
a manager and appearing
upset. Moments later, the


argument between the
two men resumed, and the
man in the front row stood
up.
Officials said Oulson
asked Reeves if he report-,
ed him to management for
using his phone.
Cummings said the
men started raising their
voices and popcorn was
thrown. Authorities said
Reeves took out a gun, and
Oulson's wife put her hand
over her husband, and
that's when Reeves fired
his weapon, striking Nich-
ole Oulson in the hand and
her husband in the chest.
"I can't believe people
would bring a pistol, a
gun, to a movie," Cum-
mings said. "I can't believe
they would argue and
fight and shoot one an-.
other over popcorn. Over a
cellphone."
Cummings, who said he
was a combat Marine in
Vietnam, said Oulson fell
onto him and his son.
"Blood started coming
out of his mouth," said
Alex Cummings. "It was
just a very bad scene."
Charles Cummings said
his son went to call 911,


while Cummings and an-
other patron who claimed
to be a nurse began per-
forming CPR on the
victim.
A man sitting next to
the shooter grabbed
the gun out of his hand,
and the suspect did not
attempt to get away, Cum-
mings said.
Oulson and his wife
were taken by ambulance
to a Tampa-area hos-
pital, where the victim
Chad Oulson died, To-
bin said. His wife's inju-
ries weren't considered
life-threatening.
Tampa Police spokes-
woman Laura McElroy
said in a news release
that Reeves was a captain
when he retired from the
department in 1993. She
added that he was instru-
mental in establishing the
agency's first tactical re-
sponse team. After he re-
tired, Reeves worked secu'-
rity for the Busch Gardens
theme park and was on
the board of a neighbor-
ing county's Crime Stop-
pers organization. Reeves'
son also is a Tampa officer,
police said.


Florida ACA enrollment surges in Dec. with 140,000


The Associated Press

FORT LAUDERDALE-
Roughly 140,000 Florid-
ians signed up for the
new federal health insur-
ance program last month.
That's nearly eight times
the 18,000 others who
signed up in October and'
November combined, ac-
cording to figures released
Monday. *
Of the 158,030 enroll-
ments thus far, about 55
percent were women and
45 percent were men.
Roughly 20 percent fell
into the crucial 18- to 34-
years-old demographic
and about 60 percent
were between 45 and 64
years old. And 83 percent
of those who purchased
plans qualified for a tax
credit, according to enroll-
ment statistics from the
Health and Human Ser-
vices Department.
Florida continues to lead
enrollment efforts among
the three dozen states re-
lying on the federally run
marketplace, one. of the
main tenants of the Af-
fordable Care Act. Florida's
158,030 enrollees com-
pares to 118,532 in Texas.
Nationwide, nearly2.2 mil-
lion have selected a plan.
December figures are
much higher than the
previous months' enroll-
ment, which was plagued
iby technical glitches from


healthcare.gov. But it was
still far less than what of-
ficials had originally.,pro-
jected for Florida and
nationwide.
Federal health officials
said during a conference
call with the media that
they expect the numbers to
climb in coming months,
with a likely surge closer
to the March enrollment
deadline.
The Obama administra-
tion projected 7 million
consumers would sign up
for coverage during the
first year, including about
477,000 in Florida.
Young healthy adults are
among the most important
group targeted by federal
health officials' outreach
efforts, prized by insurers
in the marketplace to off-
set the costs of paying for
older, sicker consumers.
Stacy Sylvain a 19-year-
old college student in Mi-
ami, was one of last month's
late sign-ups online. In
roughly one hour, the part-
time waitress signed up for
a plan with a $158 monthly
premium with the feds
kicking in $48. She has a
$2,500 deductible.
"Many people have a
preconceived notion that
young people are healthy
and don't need to go to the
doctor," said Sylvain who
suffered a minor injury
when she fell and hit her
head during an indoor soc-


cer class in 2012. "Not hav-
ing to worry about being
uninsured and the what-
ifs has made an incredible
impact on my life."
It's unclear what percent-
age of so-called "young
invincibles" the govern-
ment needs to balance
out the risk pool. Federal
health officials said Mon-
day the figures suggested
an appropriate mix, but
noted they're only halfway
through the open enroll-
ment period.
"We expect that a num-
ber of yqung healthy indi-
viduals may wait until the
very end to sign up," said
Julie Bataille, communi-
cations director for the
Centers for Medicare and
Medicaid Services.
The mid-tier silver plans
were the most popular
choice among consumers
with 60 percent choos-
ing such plans nationally
and 57 percent in Florida.
Platinum plans were the
next most popular choice,
accounting for 17 percent
in Florida,, according to
figures from HHS.
Monday's enrollment
data did not break out de-
mographics by race. Appli-
cants are not required to
give that information.
But federal health offi-
cials said they're planning
to ramp up outreach to
Hispanics, a dispropor-
tionately uninsured group,


after they've worked out
kinks in the Spanish lan-
guage website. Some
groups have complained
of sloppy translations and
say CuidadoDeSalud.gov
moves more slowly than its
English counterpart.
Anecdotal evidence sug-
gests Latinos could be lag-
ging their peers because of
confusion about subsidies,
cumbersome require-
ments for naturalization
documents and fears they
could unwittingly iden-
tify relatives in the country
illegally.
An estimated 1.3 million
Hispanic Floridians lack
health insurance, accord-
ing to the Kaiser Family
Foundation, a nonprofit
that studies health care
issues. That's about one-
third of the roughly 3.5
million uninsured people
in Florida.
The Epilepsy Foundation
of Florida, which received
a federal grant, has been
flooded with Hispanics
seeking in-person assis-
tance at its Miami head-
quarters. But enrollment
counselors there said the
federal. government's web-
site frequently asks for
residency and naturaliza-
tion papers from Hispanic
applicants, which can stall
the process for weeks if
they are mailed in.
Yolanda Madrid, a 52-
year-old housekeeper liv-


ing in Miami, hasn't been
able to afford health in-
surance until now. With
the help of a counselor,
Madrid learned last week
that she qualifies for a tax
credit.

It was a phrase similar to
something you might hear
in a comedian's act, or
see in the movies. But in-
stead of hearing "Is there
a doctor in the house?,"
followed by a punchline,
they heard an urgent mes-
sage that was no joking
matter. "Is there a doctor
on the flight?"
Hoff and Arunakul ex-
changed a glance. And
then they were on their
feet, headed downstairs
to the section of the plane
where the crisis was
unfolding.
An elderly woman was
sitting unconscious in her
seat. Hoff and Arunakul
sprang to action, help-
ing the nurses and other
medical professionals on
the passenger list who had
also responded to the plea.
The team. tried every-
thing they could think, of
to revive her, but to no
avail. Hoff and Arunakul
believe the woman was
already dead by the time
they were summoned
and could- move her down
to the floor for treat-
ment. She had been
headed home, attached

to have suffered a car-
diac arrest or some such
crisis, she died in flight.
The memory of her hus-
band's raw grief stayed
with Hoff and Arunakul
- it's still hard to shake,
they say.
But a small, positive
thing did happen, some-
thing that helped them
take away a good feeling
from the experience.


after the store was closed,
Ward told the officer she
was meeting a friend. The
deputy reported that he
saw what appeared to be
a small glass pipe pro-

pants pocket, and asked
her to remove it.
After she did so, the of-

a pipe, and noted that it

One thing is for sure:


When the Airbus landed

were escorted like VIPs

told the officer that she'd

Woman accused of presenting false prescription


From staff reports

A Cottondale woman
was arrested on multiple
charges after allegedly il-
legally using the prescrip-
tion pad of a dentist she
once worked for to write
herself a script for hy-
drocodone-containing
medication.
Georganna Nichole
Clark, 36, is charged in


the case with obtaining a


fraudulent


prescrip-
I tion, theft of
identity and
trafficking
in hydroco-
done.
Clark According
to the com-
plaint filed against her,
Clark allegedly presented
the prescription for a 15-


pill supply of a "7.5 500 mg
Hydrocodone-Acetamin-
ophen" medication to the
Marianna Wal-Mart phar-
macy in Marianna back
in October. Authorities
say Clark was captured
on surveillance video as
she approached the phar-
macy counter wearing
scrubs, common attire for
her workplace at the time,
officials noted.


In the complaint, which
was written in Decem-
ber of last year, Clark
was also described as a
suspect in other prescrip-
tion fraud incidents. Clark
had been employed at
Payne and Payne Dentist-
ry until Dec. 9 of last year.
The owner-physicians
both told police that they
had never written Clark a
prescription.


Man charged with sexual assault


From staff reports

A Graceville man is ac-
cused of sexual battery
and aggravated battery
with a motor vehicle after
a woman accused him of
the offenses Sunday night.
According to the com-
plaint filed against 20-
year-old Cassie Allen
Barnes, the woman said
she was walking along
Highway 77 in Graceville
when a man in a truck ap-
proached and asked if she
needed a ride. She said
she accepted the ride and
asked him to take her to
a home on Peanut Road,
just south of Graceville.
She said the man turned
south on Peanut Road but
told her he needed to stop
by his house to get some-
thing. She said he then
pulled off the road into
the edge of a field, made


her get out, and demand-
ed sex. The victim said
she at first
declined his
advances,
^*^'*'Jbut that
she even-
LtdLL, g"svt


Barnes


tualy gave
in, in hopes
of getting
home.


She told authorities that
sexual intercourse oc-
curred on the tail gate of
Barnes' truck and that the
two of them got back in
the truck and proceeded
onto Cliff Road for a short
distance.
Then, she told authori-
ties, the man slowed the
truck down and made her
get out. In fear of being of
"being left in the middle of
nowhere," she told inves-
tigators, she grabbed onto
the truck.
The man continued


driving down the road,
dragging her, the victim
said.
Once she let go of the
truck, she knocked on
doors at three houses be-
fore someone would come
to the door and assist her.
She described her al-
leged assailant and told
officials that the man had
identified himself to her
as "Casey" and said that
he was a supervisor at
Rex Lumber Company,
and that he was on his
lunch break during their
encounter.
The woman told au-
thorities that her shoes
and glasses should still be
on the dirt road where she
was dragged, and a deputy
did find those items on
Cliff Road, along with evi-
dence of someone being
dragged, according to the
complaint.


Barnes was found at the
business location and in-
terviewed. Authorities say
he acknowledged that he
and the woman had sex,
but said it was her idea.
Noting that the woman
had abrasions to her lips,
nose, elbow and knee,
authorities also said there
were inconsistencies in
Barnes' statements. Offi-
cials further noted that the
truck, which was towed for
the purposes of the inves-
tigation, had rub marks on
its exterior which suggest-
ed that someone had at-
tempted to hold onto the
truck and slipped off of it.
Barnes was placed un-
der arrest and taken to
the county jail to await
first appearance on the
charges.

Test votes postponed on unemployment bill


The Associated Press

WASHINGTON The
Senate postponed a pair
of test votes on stalled un-
employment legislation on
Monday as Republicans
and Democrats sought
a compromise to restore
benefits to 1.3 million
long-term jobless workers
who lost them abruptly
late last year.
The postponement came
after Senate Majority Lead-
er Harry Reid of Nevada
met privately with two Re-
publicans on the measure,
the first in what looms as a
series of election-year bills
in which the political par-
ties vie for support from
economically strapped
voters.
Officials in both par-
ties said that in the meet-
ing with Reid, Sens.
Dean Heller of Nevada
and Susan Collins of
Maine proposed adding a
provision to the bill to
restore full cost of living
benefits to military retir-
ees under the age of 62.
Lawmakers voted to cur-
tail the increases late last
year, and now face enor-
mous pressure from vet-
erans groups to reverse
themselves.


THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
Sen. Jack Reed, D-R.I., (center) joined by Sen. Charles Schumer, D-N.Y., (left) and Sen. Jeff
Merkley, D-Ore., (right) meets with reporters on Capitol Hill in Washington, Tuesday, after leg-
islation to renew jobless benefits for the long-term unemployed unexpectedly cleared an initial
Senate hurdle.


As drafted, the legislation
would restore federal ben-
efits for the unemployed
who have exhausted their
state-provided support,
generally after 26 weeks.
An earlier program expired
on Dec. 28, cutting off
about 1.3 million people
hurt by the recession who
had been receiving an av-
erage $256 weekly.
In remarks on the Senate


floor, Reid did not mention
the veterans, but said he
hoped an agreement was
possible on the unemploy-
ment issue.
Republican leader Mitch
McConnell said he wanted
any compromise to give
the GOP the ability to have
Senate votes on GOP pro-
posals before final passage.
He did not outline any
specific proposals, but has


previously recommended
paying for extended un-
employment benefits by
delaying a requirement
for individuals to purchase
health insurance under
President Barack Obama's
health care law.
The agreement to post-
pone the test votes until
at least Tuesday afternoon
prevented the current
standoff from harden-


ing, because there was
little prospect that sup-
porters of the bill could
have amassed the 60 votes
needed to prevail.
Officials said Heller and
Collins recommended
making quick offsetting
cuts elsewhere in the bud-
get to make sure deficits
don't rise as a result of the
jobless legislation. After
initially proposing to let
deficits rise as unemploy-
ment benefits were paid
out, Democrats late last
week recommending ex-
tending existing cuts al-
readyin effect in some ben-
efit programs by one year,
until 2024. They included a
2 percent reduction in fees
paid to hospitals and other
Medicare providers a
proposal that Heller and
Collins did not put in their
own offer.
Also at issue is the dura-
tion of any new program.
Democrats called for
an 11-month bill late last
week, while Heller and
Collins proposed three
months instead.
The officials who de-
scribed the proposals
spoke on condition of
anonymity, saying they
were not authorized to
discuss them on the re-


cord. Aides to Heller and
Collins refused to provide
confirmation.
The mood was testy
earlier in the day, when
Reid said Republicans
"have been very effective
at creating gridlock" and
"obsessed with taking pot
shots" at the health care
law.
A few moments later,
McConnell blamed Demo-
crats for the hold-up that
has blocked action on the
legislation to date.
Until. the weekend, he
said, Reid "only seemed
to want to extend
this program with-
out really paying for it,
without doing much of
anything to help create
private sector job cre-
ation and without cre-
ating opportunities for
targeted training" for the
unemployed.
Under the expired pro-
gram, the long-term
jobless were entitled to
a maximum of 47 addi-
tional weeks of benefits,
depending on the un-
employment level in
their states. Under a
revised bill Reid advanced
late last week, the total
would fall to a-maximum
of 31 weeks.


Pilots grounded after landing at wrong airport


The Associated Press

DALLAS The pilots of
a Southwest Airlines flight
that mistakenly landed at
the wrong Missouri airport
were grounded Monday,
less than a day after they
touched down at a small
airfield that gave them
only half as much room as
normal to stop the jet.
Southwest Flight 4013
was traveling Sunday eve-
ning from Chicago's Mid-
way Airport to Branson
Airport but instead landed
at tiny Taney County Air-
port seven miles away.
No one was hurt, but af-
ter the 124 passengers were
let off the plane, they no-
ticed the airliner had come
dangerously close to the
end of the runway, where it
could have tumbled down
a steep embankment if it


"It was surreal when I realized we could have been
in real danger."
Scott Schieffer,
Passenger


had left the pavement.
"As soon as we touched
down, the pilot applied the
brake very hard and very
forcibly," said Scott Schief-
fer, a Dallas attorney. "I
was wearing a seatbelt,
but I was lurched forward
because of the heavy pres-
sure of the brake. You could
smell burnt rubber, a very
distinct smell of burnt rub-
ber as we were stopping."
Branson Airport has a
runway that is more than
7,100 feet long a typical
size for commercial traf-
fic. The longest runway
at Taney County is only
slightly more than 3,700
feet because it is designed


for small private planes.
After the jet stopped, a
flight attendant welcomed
passengers to Branson,
Schieffer said. Then, after
a few moments, "the pilot
came on and said, 'Ladies
and gentlemen, I'm sorry
to tell you we landed at the
wrong airport."'
Southwest spokes-
man Brandy King said it's
common, for pilots to be
grounded while the airline
and federal aviation offi-
cials investigate.
Both pilots are South-
west veterans. The captain
is in his 15th year flying for
the carrier. The first officer
will mark 13 years in June,.


the airline said.
At first, Schieffer said, he
considered the error only
an inconvenience. But
once he got off the plane,
someone pointed to the
edge of the runway, which
he estimated as about 100
feet away.,
"It was surreal when I re-
alized we could have been
in real danger," he said.
"And instead of an incon-
venience, it could" have
been a real tragedy."
Mark Parent, manager
of the smaller airport
also known as M. Gra-
ham Clark Downtown
Airport, described the dis-
tance as closer to 300 feet.
He said the runway is built
partly on landfill. At the
end, there is a "significant
drop-off," with a ravine be-
neath it, then busy U.S. 65
on the other side.


He said a Boeing 737 had
never landed at the small
airfield, which. normally
handles light jets, turbo-
props and small aircraft for
the charter, corporate and
tourism markets.
No one was at the airport
when the Southwest flight
landed. Airport, employ-
ees had gone home about
an hour earlier but were
called back after the unex-
pected arrival, Parent said.
The Federal Aviation
Administration was in-
vestigating, but agency
spokesman Tony Molinaro
declined to elaborate.
At the time of the land-
ing, around 6 p.m., skies
were clear, with the tem-
perature in the 50s, said
Jeff Bourk, executive direc-
tor of Brahson Airport.
A third Southwest em-
ployee not a pilot was


in the cockpit jumpseat,
King said. That would not
be unusual, since flight at-
tendants sometimes ride
alongto meet anotherflight
on which they are sched-
uled to work, a practice
known as "deadheading."
Passengers were load-
ed on buses for the
7-mile trip to Branson.
Southwest brought in an-
other plane for passengers
flying on to Love Field in
Dallas. That flight depart-
ed around 10 p.m., Bourke
said.
By, mid-afternoon Mon-
day, the plane involved in
the mistaken landing was
airborne again after an un-
eventful takeoff from the
county airport. About 200
people gathered to watch
the takeoff and cheered
loudly as the jet climbed
away.


NJ Democrats intensify


Christie scandal inquiry


DOTHAN EAGLE


cordially invites you to the


The Associated Press

TRENTON, N.J. Dem-
ocrats in New Jersey sharp-
ened their.aim at Republi-
can Gov. Chris Christie on
Monday, forming special
legislative committees
to explore the role poli-
tics played in traffic jams
last fall and announcing
that the investigation has
grown into an abuse of
power probe.
The intensifying in-
vestigation, which
threatens to undermine
Christie's second term
and his chances at a 2016
presidential run, revealed
last week that high-rank-
ing Christie aides and ap-
pointees were involved in
ordering lane closings in
September as apparent
political payback that led
to massive gridlock in the
town of Fort Lee.
A new special Assem-
bly committee, given
subpoena power and a
special counsel, will be
charged with finding out
how high the plot went
up Christie's chain of
command, said a leading
state Democrat, Assem-
bly Majority Leader Lou
Greenwald.
"It is clearly an abuse
of power," he said. "The
question is, who abused
their power and how high
did it go?"
The committee will fo-
cus exclusively on the
traffic jams in Fort Lee,
whose mayor has said he
believes the lanes were
Closed to punish him for

not endorsing Christie.
The panel will be chaired
the head of the Assem-
bly transportation com-
mittee who launched the
initial investigation into
the lane closings, John
Wisniewski.
The state Senate an-
nounced that it planned
to establish its own com-
mittee, also with subpoena
power.
Christie has apologized
over the lane closings but
denied involvement. He


also fired a top aide and cut
ties with a political adviser
who'd been widely seen as
a potential campaign man-
ager if Christie runs for
president. Wisniews-
ki said Monday that
both of them could receive
subpoenas soon, though
he could subpoena their
emails first.
Wisniewski also referred
contempt charges against
another Christie loyal-
ist, David Wildstein, to 'a
county prosecutor.

jLady Indians go for 3-0 in Panhandle

dkent@jcfloridan.com
The No. 5 Chipola Lady Indi-
ans will look to go 3-0 in Pan-
handle Conference play when
they head to Tallahassee to
take on the TCC Lady Eagles
tonight.
Chipola (18-1 overall, 2-0 in
the Panhandle Conference) are
coming off of league wins of
91-76 over Pensacola State and
68-61 over Gulf Coast State, with
the latter likely to land the Lady


Indians at No. 1 in the next state
poll.
It was the second win over a
top five team in the nation this
season for Chipola after beating
No. 1 Trinity Valley 72-60 on Nov.
23.
Tallahassee (10-10 overall, 1-
2 in the Panhandle) also played
the Lady Commodores on Satur-
day and came away with an 81-
60 loss, which followed a 91-80
victory over Pensacola State in
their conference opener.


The Lady Eagles are led in
scoring by a pair of sophomore
guards in Tyeshia Guinnie (14.8
points per game) and Addesha
Collins (14.6 points per game),
while sophomore forward Aariel
Allen is posting 10.6 points and
a team-high 8.6 rebounds per
game.
TCC started the season out 5-
2, but has lost eight of the last 13
games.
The Lady Indians are being
led statistically by their two


stand-out post players: 6-foot-
3 freshman Evelyn Akhator and
6-foot-1 sophomore Brianna
Wright.
Akhator is leading the team in
scoring (15.1 points per game),
rebounding (12.3) and blocks
(2.4), while Wright has bumped
up her averages with a strong
seven-game stretch to 12.2
points and 6.7 rebounds per
game.

Eagles host Indians


Chipola faces

TCC team

desperate for

league win
BY DUSTIN KENT
dkent@jcfloridan.com
The No. 4 Chipola Indians
will head to Tallahassee to-
night to take on a TCC Eagles
team desperate to get a win.
The Eagles (11-8 overall,
0-3 in Panhandle Confer-
ence play) are still looking
for their first league win after
suffering a trio of heartbreak-
ing losses, including a pair of
overtime defeats to Northwest
Florida State and Pensacola
State.
TCC most recently lost to
Gulf Coast State 80-72 on Sat-
urday in a game the Eagles
led by 12 in the second half
before a three-point barrage
by Commodores guard Elliott
Cole sparked a huge come-
back win.
But despite the 0-3 mark,
Chipola coach Patrick Blake
said that he and his players
are well-aware that they are
facing a high-quality Panhan-
dle team.
"The crazy thing, especial-
ly about this league, is they
could easily be 3-0 and we
could easily be 0-2 going into
this game," the coach said,
noting the Indians' close wins
of 77-76 over Pensacola State
and 69-65 over Gulf Coast.
"They've had a couple of plays
late not go their way whereas
we were able to hit two free
throws with seven seconds left
to beat Pensacola and then
blocked a three-point shot
against Gulf Coast at the end
to secure a win.
"Their record is not indica-
tive of how good of a team
they are. We're preparing to
play a great team."
Tallahassee was on a bit of a
hot streak coming into confer-
ence play having won six of
its last seven before the 77-71
overtime loss to Northwest

The Eagles are led offen-
sively by sophomore guard
Earvin Morris, who is averag-
ing 14.9 points per game while
shooting 55 percent from the
field and 51 percent from the


three-point line, with fresh-
man guard Dirk Williams
scoring 12.5 points per garhe,
and sophomore forward Cam-
eron Naylor 11.9 points per
game.
TCC has shot the ball well


from distance so far, convert-
ing 39 percent from the three-
point line as a team with five
different players shooting 35
percent or better.

Sophomore guard Chancellor
Lockett scored a career-high 22
points on seven three-pointers
to help lift the Malone Tigers to
their 1011 win in the last 11 games,
stopping the Central Jaguars 65-
53 in Milton.
With the victory, the top-ranked
team in Class 1A improved to 17-
3 on the season and 9-1 in Dis-
trict 1 competition.
The game wasn't quite as close
as the final score might indi-
cate, as the Tigers jumped out to
a 14-4 start and led 57-35 in the
fourth quarter before Central's
Zac Wright went on a three-point
shooting spree to close the game.
The 6-foot-7 junior made five
shots from long distance in'the fi-
nal period and ended up with 33
points, though the Jaguars never
got closer than the final margin
in the fourth.
"We got up and kind of hit
cruise control," Malone coach
Steven Welch said of his team.
"But any time you get a win over
there at Central, it's big. That's
a long drive and they're a good
team. I was OK with it, but we
have to do a better job of closing
out games."
Antwain Johnson added 19
points for Malone, and Chai Bak-
er scored 14.
But it was the dynamic shoot-
ing of Lockett-who went 7-of-lO
from three that blew the game
open for the Tigers.

overall and 7-5 in district.


Friday's scores came off
the foot of Reagan Oliver

assist by Oliver.
In that game, Valerie
Sims remained key in
the box with 12 saves on
the night after recording
15 saves against Port St.
Joe.
Marianna will travel to
South Walton for district
competition tonight to
face off against Baker, who
the Lady Bulldogs split the
season series with.

Lady Pirates stay perfect in district


BY DUSTIN KENT
dkent@jcfloridan.com
The Sneads Lady Pirates
finished out last week with
a pair of district victories,
holding off the Blount-
stown Lady Tigers 57-50
on Thursday
night before
walloping
Wewahitch-
ka 66-15 on
Friday.
The wins put
Sneads at 13-2 overall and
8-0 in District 2, with just
two more wins needed to-
night over Cottondale and
Friday over Graceville to
complete a perfect district
season.
The Lady Pirates have
now won nine games in


a row overall, the last de-
feat coming 56-48 to Hol-
mes County on Dec. 9 in
Bonifay.
Thursday's win was
something of a dogfight
for the Lady Pirates, who
were playing without a
starter in sophomore
wing player and defensive
specialist De'Arryl Green,
who was out sick.
Sneads still found itself
leading 29-25 at halftime,
but Blountstown man-
aged to keep it close and
cut the deficit to just two
heading into the final
period.
But the fourth quarter
belonged to the Lady Pi-
rates, who outscored their
district neighbors 17-12 to


secure the win.
Tasherica McMillon had
23 points to lead Sneads,
while Aaliyah Williams
added 13, Chasity McG-
riff nine, and Logan Neel
seven.
Friday's victory required
far less effort, with the
Lady Pirates overwhelm-
ing the Lady Gators from
start to finish.
Sneads jumped out
to a 23-4 start and took
a 43-9 lead into the
halftime break before
cruising in the second
half.
Emily Glover led the
Lady Pirates with 20
points, while Neel had 14,
McMillon 13, and Sabrina
Rizo nine.

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
Vanderbilt head coach James Franklin (center) celebrates
after Vanderbilt took the lead against Mississippi during the
fourth quarter of a game on Aug. 30,2013.


Passionate, proud


Frankin takes


over Penn State


The Associated Press.

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. -
James Franklin grew up in
the Philadelphia suburbs, a
strong-willed if not exactly
strong-armed high school
quarterback who believed
he was good enough to
play at Penn State.
Joe Paterno's coaching
staff didn't exactly agree,
and while Franklin's arm
led to him a decorated
career at Division II East
Stroudsburg (Pa.), his will
led him to the place he
wanted to be all along.
Home.
More than two decades
after a futile attempt to
draw Penn State's attention
as a player, the university
hired the charismatic 41-
year-old as its next head
coach on Saturday.
"I'm a Pennsylvania boy,"
Franklin said, "with a Penn
State heart."
One charged with con-
tinuing the painstaking
and sometimes painful re-
building process started by
Bill O'Brien, who took over
in the wike of the Jerry
Sandusky child sex abuse
scandal more than two
years ago.
But O'Brien bolted for


the NFL's Houston Texans
on New Year's Eve, open-
ing the door for. Franklin,
who breathed life into a
moribund program at Van-
derbilt, winning 24 games
over three seasons and
leading the Commodores
to three straight bowl
games.
More will be expected
here eventually. That's
fine by Franklin, who in-
sists he didn't sign the six-
year contract reportedly
worth around $4.5 million
a season to use, the Nit-'
tany Lions as a stepping
stone.
Franklin littered his hour-
long introduction with all
the right touches. Wearing
a blue suit with a blue-
and-white tie, he called
Penn State his "dream job"
and dubbed Saturday "the
best day of my life" before
quickly amending it to
the "third best"' after his
wedding day to his wife
Fumi and the birth of their
twin daughters Addy and
Shola.
Pointing to his family
as they watched from the
front row, Franklin de-
scribed himself as having
"two daughters and 95 new
sons."


Top LSU RB Jeremy Hill



announces he'll turn pro


The Associated Press

BATON ROUGE, La. LSU rush-
ing leader Jeremy Hill is entering the
NFL draft and one of his blockers,
offensive guard Trai Turner, is join-
ing him.
Hill has played two seasons at LSU
and was a major reason the Tigers
reached double-digit wins in both
of them, leading the team in rush-
ing each year.
"I am a Tiger for life. I will forever
be grateful to my LSU fans, friends,
coaches and family. This decision
has been very difficult for me," Hill
wrote on a social media account
that was verified by LSU's chief ath-
letic spokesman Michael Bonnette.
"With all of that being said, I have
decided to forego my Junior season
and enter the 2014 NFL Draft."
Hill rushed for 1,401 yards and 16
touchdowns this season, including
a 216-yard, two-touchdown perfor-
mance in LSU's 21-14 victory over
Iowa in the Outback Bowl. Now his
early departure opens the way for
highly rated recruit Leonard Four-
nette to assume a central role in the
Tigers' ground game.
Turner has started at right guard
since the middle of 2012, his red-
shirt freshman year, and leaves with
two years of eligibility left.
In a statement issued by his agent,


THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
LSU running back Jeremy Hill (33) rushes through the Iowa defense, including
defensive back Desmond King (right) to score on a 14-yard touchdown run during
the second quarter of the Outback Bowl on Jan. 1.


Peter Schaffer, Turner said he "loved
every minute" at' LSU and came to
his decision "after lengthy, serious
consideration with my family and
coaches."
Turner said head coach Les Miles
and his offensive staff "prepared
me for this extraordinary opportu-
nity and are supporting me in my
decision."
Hill's college career was delayed
one season by criminal charges
stemming from his sexual relation-
ship with a girl at his Baton Rouge


high school, which resulted in a
misdemeanor plea and two years'
probation. Then last spring, he was
caught on video punching a fellow
LSU student outside a bar, resulting
in more charges and a suspension
from the team. That led to an ad-
ditional misdemeanor plea, but a
state judge in August allowed him to
remain on probation albeit under
a curfew, bar-ban and other restric-
tions and LSU coach Les Miles al-
lowed Hill to return to the Tigers for
fall practice.


Texas regents OK Strong $25M contract


The Associated Press

AUSTIN, Texas Uni-
versity of Texas regents
on Monday approved a
five-year contract for new
football. coach Charlie
Strong. worth more than
$25 million.
Strong will be paid $5
million in the first year,
with an annual $100,000
raise for the coach chosen
to succeed Mack Biown.
The regents met by phone
Monday and approved the
contract by a unanimous
vote.
Strong, 53, spent the last
four years at Louisville and
will be the first African-
American head coach of
a Longhorns men's team.
He went 23-3 the last two
seasons at Louisville, and


was introduced as Texas'
new coach Jan. 6.
"We have the right coach
on the right terms," Texas
President Bill Powers said
after the board vote. "I am
so excited about coach
Strong being here."
Brown spent 16 seasons
at Texas and won the 2005
national championship.
He resigned in Decem-
ber after four consecutive
seasons with at least four
losses.
Strong's deal includes
Texas paying a $4.38 mil-
lion buyout from his pre-
vious contract with Lou-
isville. Strong's salary and
the buyout with Louisville
will be paid entirely with
money raised by the ath-
letic department, school
officials said. No state tax-


payer money is used.
Texas has the wealthiest
athletic department in the
country, with an annual
budget of more than $160
million.
Patterson said school
officials initially drew up
a list of about 30 poten-
tial candidates when their
coaching search began.
"We whittled that list
down a bit and then went
out, had aboutahalf a doz-
en interviews, and Charlie
was great to sit with in his
kitchen," Patterson said.
"Wonderful family, tough
football coach ... great in
the community. By all ac-
counts, we're. just really
excited to have him."
Strong's contract has bo-
nus incentives, including
$250,000 for winning the


national championship
and $100,000 for a Big 12
title or winning a national
coach of the year award. It
also pays at least $25,000
for appearing in a bowl
game. Strong also could
earn up to $150,000 based
on his team's academic
performance.
It also has some financial
protection for the coach:
Texas must pay Strong
the balance of his con-
tract if he is fired without
cause. Browns contract
ran through 2020 but had
a termination buyout that
gradually reduced every
year.
Now that he's been ap-
proved by university re-
gents, Strong is expected
to soon announce his
staff.


Missouri football standout's arrest tied to drugs


The Associated Press

SPRINGFIELD, Mo. -Missouri
receiver Dorial Green-Beck-
ham was arrested in southwest
Missouri after an officer found
about a pound of marijuana in
the vehicle he was in with two
other men.
Green-Beckham, a sophomore
who led No. 5 Missouri in recep-
tions last season, and the other
men were released without for-


mal charges after their arrest late
Friday, Springfield police said in
a statement.
Green-Beckham, John W Mc-
Daniel and Patrick Prouty, were
pulled over late Friday because
the vehicle McDaniel was driv-
ing had expired license plates,
police said. The statement said
the officer smelled marijuana in
the vehicle and found "approxi-
mately a pound of marijuana
and assorted drug parapherna-


lia" in the vehicle.
Green-Beckham, McDaniel
and Prouty were booked into the
Greene County jail for distribu-
tion of a controlled substance.
All three were released without
bond or charges while the case is
investigated.
Missouri, spokesman Chad
Moller said the school was "aware
of the situation',and working -to
learn more."
The ,6-foot-6, 225-pound


Green-Beckham was considered
the top prospect in the nation
when he signed a letter of intent
with Missouri. He set national
prep records of 6,353 career
yards receiving and 75 touch-
down catches at Springfield Hill-
crest High. Last season, he had.
59 receptions with a 15-yard av-
erage and 12 touchdowns.
In the SEC championship
game against Auburn, he caught


six passes for 144 yards and two the case.


scores. His 27-yard catch set up
Henry Josey's go-ahead score
in the Cotton Bowl victory over
Oklahoma State.
Green-Beckham was charged
in .October 2012 with mari-
juana possession after he and
two teammates ,were reportedly
smoking pot in a campus park-
ing lot near Memorial Stadium.
All three later pleaded guilty to

Annide's Mailbox


Dear Annie: I have been in a committed
relationship for a year. Admittedly, my
girlfriend and I (we are lesbians) rushed
into things. We moved in together quickly
when she broke up with her girlfriend of
five years. After the first month, "Den-
nie" cheated on me with her ex. I wrote it
off, but a few months later, she cheated
again. I have generalized anxiety disorder
and started to associate going to work
with Dennie's cheating, which made my
work life miserable.
Shortly after all of this happened, I
emotionally cheated with an ex of my
own. I admitted this to Dennie. She was
angry and sad, but I said she should give
me a second chance because I'd already
given her two. I deleted my ex's phone
number and blocked her in all forms of
communication.
I recently found out that Dennie
visited her ex when she was briefly in
the hospital. It wasn't cheating, but we
had agreed that one of the conditions
of continuing our relationship is that all
contact with the exes must be stopped.


How many five-putts
were there on the PGA
tour last year?
This deal has instructive
points for both sides. The
auction went as given.
Note, in particular, East's
pass. Yes, West might
have had a three-suiter
with a heart void, and a
contract of four spades
would have either made
or been a cheap save
when four hearts doubled
wag making. But it is the
percentage action to
pass when balanced. It is
usually easier to win four
tricks than 10. (Yes, here
five clubs makes, but how
would you get there?)
West led the spade ace:
five, two, three. What hap-
pened after that?
Since East's low card
denied the spade queen,
West anticipated that

One month later, Dennie cheated on
me again with this same girl in our
home. It's hard for me to look at Dennie
the same way. My head keeps telling
me to let her go, but my heart isn't
ready.
I've asked Dennie to go with me for
counseling, but she says she wants us to
work it out on our own. She says she isn't
the only one at fault. We've both made
mistakes, but the difference is that I've
learned from mine. I can't continue un-
less we both can be faithful. What should
I do?
CHEATED ON AGAIN

Dear Cheated On: Dennie is not yet over
her ex, and you seem well aware of it. You
were her rebound. You desperately want
Dennie to be someone she is not, and it.
isn't working out. Unless you want your
heart broken over and over, please let her
go. Even if she doesn't return to her ex,
her next relationship might not be with
you. If you can accept this outcome, you
can move forward.

diamond. East won with
his king and shifted to the
club jack. The defend-
ers took two tricks there.
South, down to eight
trumps, ruffed the next
play and cashed the heart
ace to drop the king and
get out for down two.
Did you notice South's
error? He should have
played his spade queen at
trick one. Then it would
have been dangerous for
West to continue with the
spade king, lest South ruff,
cash the heart ace, get to
dummy with the heart
queen, and discard two
losers on the spade jack
and nine.
There were a surprising
11 five-putts on the PGA
tour in 2013.

Eagles
From Page 1B
Blake said that the
Eagles present problems
with their versatility at
both ends of the floor.
"They're very good
defensively and have in-
credible length and ath-
leticism at all five posi-
tions," he said. "They can
score in multiple ways
and really pose a chal-
lenge for the defense in
keeping them out of the
paint and also guarding
three-point shooters.
Offensively, it's really
tough to score against
that kind of length
and athleticism."
While the Indians are
2-0 and 16-1 overall, it
hasn't been exactly a
smooth start to the con-
ference season so far.
Chipola allowed 57
percent shooting against
Pensacola State and won
by a point despite the
Pirates missing 13 free
throws on the night,
while the struggles trans-
ferred to the offensive
end against Gulf Coast in
a game the Indians shot
33 percent from the field
and made only 2-of-21
three-pointers.
Blake said there really
isn't just one point of em-
phasis to improve, but
there definitely needs to
be a change in the team's
mental approach to the
game.
"It's really everything,
but my main concern
is I don't think our en-
ergy and effort is where
it needs to be. We're just
not on the same page,"
he said. "We're worried
about things we can't
control instead of having
our focus on what each
player can do individu-
ally to help us win.
"I just think we're still
growing. For the first
team really all year,
teams have made us get
to our second and third
options in the offense
and we haven't done a
good job moving the
ball, and defensively it
feels like we're a step
behind. But I've been ex-
cited with the last couple
of practices. This is a
great group that wants to
win."
From the look of things
thus far, wins appear as
if they will be even hard-
er to come by in the Pan-
handle Conference this
year, with all six games
having been decided by
single digits, including
two in overtime.
"This is probably the
most balanced the Pan-
handle has been since
I've been here," Blake
said. "There's never an
off night, especially on
the road. Tallahassee
is one of the toughest
places to play, so we're
going to have to play our
best game on both ends
of the floor to come away
with a win."

"By far it was a career
game for him," Welch said
of the 5-foot-lO sopho-
more. "I thought his team-
mates did a great job of
finding him. (Central)
geared everything toward
'Chai and (Johnson), but
Chancellor did a tremen-
dous job. He shot it really
well and defensively did a
good job. He had a great
game. Any time we get that
effort from him, we'll be
fine."
Malone is next scheduled
to go on the road tonight
to take on Ponce De Leon
in another district game.

LadyTigers snap 5-game
losing streak
The Malone girls won
44-26 over Central earlier
in the day to bring an end
to a run of five consecu-
tive losses dating back to
a 47-43 road loss to Poplar
Springs on Dec. 10.
Four of the five straight
defeats came away from
home, but the Lady Tigers
were able to pick up their
first true road win in over a
_J month Saturday in Milton.


NFL


Broncos CB. Harris



out with torn ACL


The Associated Press

ENGLEWOOD, Colo.
- Denver Broncos corner-
back Chris Harris Jr. is out
for the rest of the playoffs
after an MRI on Monday
revealed a torn ACL in his
left knee.
"There's no doubt he's
one of our better perform-
ers on defense throughout
this season, but ... we've
lost some pretty good
performers throughout
*the season and this team's
been resilient," coach John
Fox said.
Harris was injured in the
third quarter of Denver's
24-17 win over San Di-
ego in the AFC Divisional
round Sunday.
After he went out, Char-
gers quarterback Philip
Rivers staged a comeback
from a 17-point deficit
largely by targeting Harris'
rusty replacement, veteran
Quentin Jammer. It fell
short, however, when Pey-
ton Manning was able to
keep Rivers on the sideline
over the final 3 minutes, 51
seconds by converting a
trio of third downs.
Harris had played more
snaps than anybody on
defense and had 65 tack-
les, three interceptions
and 15 pass breakups, all
career highs.
"It's another disappoint-
ment for us," linebacker
Paris Lenon said. "Some-
body else that we've been
battling with that has been
a huge part of this team
and this defense that is
down. It's an opportunity
for somebody else to step
up and play big."
Fox wouldn't say if Jam-
mer will start against
New England .in the AFC
championship.
The Broncos (14-3) have
endured an injury epidem-
ic, especially on defense,

to reach the AFC title game
against New England
(13-4), but Harris' injury
could prove the hardest to
overcome.
"It's terrible news," Ter-
rance Knighton said. "You
hate to see a guy having
a great year, going into a
contract year (get hurt). I
wish him the best. I wish
him a speedy recovery, but
we just have to focus on
the task at hand right now
and that's New England.
Whoever will fill his shoes,
whoever we put in there,
has to step uip."
If the Broncos don't
stick with Jammer, they
could move Champ Bai-
ley, a 12-time Pro Bowler
who's been relegated to
slot duty after returning
from a nagging foot injury
last month, -back outside
or they could insert rookie
Kayvon Webster in Harris'
spot opposite shut-down
cornerback Dominique
Rodgers-Cromartie.
Webster is playing with
a cast on his right thumb,
which he broke in two
places a month ago, re-
quiring surgery to insert
six screws and five pins.
Another option is Tony
Carter, who was covering
a punt at New England on


Nov. 24 when returned Wes
Welker didn't call him off
in time and the ball hit his
leg. The Patriots recovered
and Stephen Gostkowski
kicked a 31-yard field goal
that gave New England a
34-31 win over Denver in
overtime.
Harris is the fifth defen-
sive starter the Broncos
*have lost, joining Von Mill-
er, Kevin Vickerson, Rahim
Moore and DerekWolfe.
Harris was hurt on the
opposite side of the field
when Rivers completed
a 19-yard pass to Keenan
Allen along the San Diego
sideline with 8:17 remain-
ing in the third quarter.
Harris helped hold Riv-
ers to 20 yards passing in
the first half but after he
went out, Rivers threw two
TD passes to Allen and it
took Manning's 21-yard
completion to tight end
Julius Thomas on third-
and-17 from his own 20 to
help the Broncos salt away
the win.
"Philip got hot there in
the second half. I did not
want to give him the ball
back there at the end,"
Manning said. "There was
some real want-to on our
offense's part to stay on the
field on that last series."

Panthers turning


their attention to


a bright future


The Associated Press

CHARLOTTE -One day
after the getting bounced
from the NFL playoffs the
Carolina Panthers turned
their attention to do-
ing something no other
team in franchise his-
tory has done: reach the
playoffs in back-to-back
seasons.
The Panthers have
been to the playoffs five
times in 18 seasons, but
never in consecutive
years.
All-Pro fullback Mike
Tolbert says the Pan-
thers are out to change
that.
"I think we're on the
verge of something spe-
cial, so I'm excited about
the future," Tolbert
said.
The Panthers returned
to the playoffs for the first
time since 2008 going
12-4, winning the NFC
South and capturing the
No.,2 seed in the playoffs.
It all came to an abrupt
end Sunday with a 23-10
loss to the San Francisco


49ers, but coach Ron Ri-
vera still called it a suc-
cessful season.
"We learned a lot about
who we are as a football
team, a lot about our foot-
ball players," said Rivera,
who was 13-19 in his first
two seasons as Panthers
coach. "... I'm pretty fired
up about that. I think go-
ing forward it means a lot
of good things."
But Rivera cautioned
that "if we don't learn
from the games we
played this year then
we wasted this season.
We are not going to do
that."
Like every other NFL
team, the Panthers have
holes to fill and free
agents to re-sign.
The most pressing need
is getting defensive end
Greg Hardy under con-
tract. The 25-year-old
Hardy is due to become
an unrestricted free agent
and is expected to com-
mand a huge payday after
collecting 15 sacks this
season and 26 over the
past two years.

They do so thanks to a
dominant fourth period
run in which they scored
the first 14 points of the
quarter to blow open a
close game before Central
finally got on the board
with a basket in the wan-
ing seconds.
Malone overcame some
early foul trouble to senior
star Curteeona Brelove,
who picked up three first-
half fouls, and rallied from
an early 17-10 deficit to
outscore the Jaguars 34-9
the rest of the way.
"It was a good team win.
The girls did a real good job
of fighting through some
adversity in the first half,"
Lady Tigers coach Preston
Roberts said. "Curteeona
came back on in the sec-
ond half and did a great
job keeping everyone else
involved, doing a great job
on the boards and playing
great defense, and Briana
(Dallas) played one of her
best games of the year."
Brelove led Malone with
13 points, followed by Dal-
las with 12, and Angelica
Livingston with 10.
The Lady Tigers were
able to start their initial
run to take control of the
game in the first half with

fourth, but the Lady Tigers
put the game away with a
dominant stretch of the
fourth period, particularly
at the defensive end.
"I was really proud of
the defense," Roberts said.

but only four of those came
after halftime.
