In a phone interview Thursday,
McAlpin said the pills were also stronger
than normal "street pills," with 7.5 mil-

pills. Normal street pills contain about 5
milligrams, McAlpin said.
According to a police report from the
Florida Highway Patrol, Garner was trav-
eling to Panama City as a passenger, with
two others, down State Road 10 in Grand

pulled over. According to the report,

FLORIDAN STAFF WRITER
High school students from
around the region gathered at the
old Marianna High School gym-
nasium Thursday for the annual
"Peg Pin" robotics challenge, put
on by the Chipola Regional
The competition brings teams
of students from a five-county
area - Jackson, Holmes,
Washington, Calhoun and
Liberty counties - to compete in
a robotics competition, after
months of hard work designing
their own robot.
Each high school in all five
counties is given two robot kits,
costing about $1,000 apiece, pro-
vided by the Workforce Board.
The kits have various inetal
pieces, wheels, electronics and
other materials needed for the
design and creation of a function-
Given only a few months to
prepare, students work on the
design and construction of their
But the design and building is
said to be only Jalf the fun.
Following months of preparation,
students then pack up their new
designs and head off to competi-
"This is just a great way for students to get
involved and incorporate all kinds of different
- Kenny Grifffin,
Jackson County School Board and Workforce Board member
The competition has two main
components - the "Peg Pin"
games and the log book.
Students are required to submit
a,log book of their entire design-
and-build process. The teams
then receive points for their log
books according to the amount of
work and detail included. They
also get points for the amount of
"Peg Pin" games won.
The "Peg Pin" matches are
played on a small field, set up
much like a robotics obstacle
course. Two teams compete in
each match, with the main objec-
tive being to gain more points
than the opposing team by stack-
ing pipes onto pegs and getting
tennis balls into tubes. The scor-
ing is calculated based on where
the balls, pegs and robots come to
a rest when time expires.
-Teams are randomly selected
to compete against each other,
with some teams from the same
school going head to head.
Richard Williams, director of
Chipola Regional Workforce
Board, said this all started a cou-
ple years ago as a grant request
that at the time didn't appear to
have much hope of succeeding.
Williams explained that at a
time when more and more high
school students are avoiding
math and science as career fields,
this competition is important for
attracting students to those areas.
The education buzz word for
the past few years has been
STEM - science, technology,
engineering and math. This is a a
national push, with educators cre-
ating programs for students in
hopes of attracting more to the
Williams said the competition
was developed to incorporate the
STEM ideals, and make it a fun

Conservatives hail Florida teacher bill as model
BY BILL KACZOR
ASSOCIATED PRESS WRITER
TALLAHASSEE - Hailed as a nation-
al model by conservative academics and
politicians, legislation that would make it
easier to fire Florida teachers and link their
pay to student test scores was expected on
Thursday to go to Gov. Charlie Crist.
Business interests as well as most
Republicans backed the hotly debated bill
that was set for a final vote in the House. It
was opposed by teachers and their unions,
local school officials and Democrats.
Crist, who's trailing tea party favorite
Marco Rubio in a primary race for the
Republican U.S. Senate nomination, once
praised the measure (SB 6) but now says
he's unsure if he'll sign it or buck his
party's legislative leadership with a veto.
"There are things about it that I like and
things about it that give me some con-
cern," said Crist, who denied he's bending
with the political winds. "I'm listening.to

Fla. lawmakers vote to loosen class size limits
BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
TALLAHASSEE - Florida lawmak-
ers have passed a ballot proposal to
loosen class size limits and a bill to
expand a voucher program.
They were among three hotly debated
education measures on the Republican-
controlled House's calendar Thursday.
The votes were 7,7-41 on the class size
amendment (SJR 2), largely along party
lines, and 95-23 on the voucher bill (SB
2126). The amendment goes directly to
the November ballot.
The bills go to Gov. Charlie Crist who
is a longtime voucher supporter and has
not expressed reservations about that

FLORIDA APRIL 10-11
Open Doors to Your Dreams ,s .
Saturday April 10 Oth
& Sunday April 11th
Florida REALTORSï¿½ will be holding an Open
House for properties located in Jackson, Holmes,
Washington and Calhoun Counties.
The countdown has begun: only a short time remains before the
federal homebuyer tax credit expires, so now is the time for house hunters to
find the home they've always wanted in Northwest Florida.
Chipola Area Board of Realtorsï¿½ will be participating in the first-ever
statewide Florida Open House Weekend just in time to help homebuyers
find their dream home - and just in time to take advantage of the federal tax
credit before it is too late.
Buyers must sign a home purchase contract by April 30 and close on the deal
by June 30, 2010; otherwise, first-time buyers will lose the chance to receive
up to $8,000 in tax credits, and buyers who already own a home could lose
up to $6,500 in tax credits.
To find participating open houses, buyers should look for blue balloons
featuring the distinctive Realtor "R" logo in white. Realtorï¿½ Members will
be flying those balloons Saturday and Sunday, April it) & 11, throughout
Calhoun, Holme, Jackson and Washington Counties.
Now is a great time to buy!
CONTACT YOUR LOCAL REALTORï¿½

FOR You To TOUR.

belies idea that
poor are blessed
BY DAVID YOUNT
SCRIPPS HOWARD NEWS SERVICE
, . least persuasive
ments made by
'rp Jesus of
Nazareth is that
i the poor are
are quick to
explain that the
Yount poor are privi-
they have so little to distract them
from God's kingdom. To underscore
his point, Jesus warned that it is eas-
ier to drive a camel through the eye
of a needle than for the rich to enter
Clearly there are gradations of
poverty. To be destitute is no bless-
ing. George Bernard Shaw reckoned
that you can't preach religion to a
starving man. Grinding poverty can
bring out the worst in human nature,
wrecking family life. Anyone who is
uncertain where' his next meal is
coming from rightly considers
poverty to be a curse, not a blessing.
The National Council of Churches
maintains that "concern for the poor
and love for the poor unite Christians
across time and in the present." The
most effective charitable organiza-
tions in the world are those that aim
- for God's sake - to serve the
needs of the poor.
Most Americans consider them-
selves to be neither rich nor poor, but
middle class in a nation of plenty. It
has taken the current economic
recession to reveal the poverty in
which many of us actually live.
Those who lose their homes or jobs
are immediately cast into poverty.
Those who depend on investments to
cushion their later years have seen
those savings shrink.
Poverty is no longer invisible in
America. Even those of us who are
insulated from poverty know friends
or neighbors who have lost their jobs
Nicholas Kristof, writing in The
New York Times, recently reminded
us how we turned into a nation rid-
dled with poverty. "Over the last 35
years," he notes, "our economy has
almost tripled in size, but...the num-
ber of Americans living below the
poverty line has been stuck at rough-
ly one in eight."
Wages for working-class
Americans, adjusted for inflation,
have not increased' since the early
1970s. During the same period the
American family has become subject
to breakup, producing an explosive
increase of single-parent households.
During the last 40 years our nation's
prison population has increased by
500 percent, mostly by poor young
men who might otherwise start fam-
ilies" and careers.
Meanwhile we stopped saving for
the future.and maxed out our credit
cards, digging ourselves a pit of per-
Government is increasingly unable
to assist the poorest among us. New
York City has stopped giving cash to
'poor families to encourage good
behavior and self-sufficiency. Next it
will stop giving students bus and
subway fare to get to and from
At the outset of his ministry Jesus
quoted Isaiah: "The Spirit of the
Lord is upon me, because he has
anointed me to bring good news to
the poor." Event as we. grapple with
less, we can still expect God's good

"Lots of people are inter-
ested in that 'Fireproof'
business model," said
Patrick Doughtie, who
wrote the original "Letters
To God"' screenplay and
helped direct the movie.
"They don't really know
what they're looking for in
terms of content, but they
know that these movies are
reaching an audience and
making some money."
Doughtie, on the other
hand, knew exactly what
he wanted to see when
"Letters To God" reached
movie screens. He began
studying screenwriting in
order to tell a highly per-
sonal story based on the
life of his son, Tyler, who
died in 2005 at age 9 after a
battle with a brain tumor.
After wrestling with
anger and depression,
Doughtie finally realized
how much his son's faith
had touched the lives of the
people around him, old and
young, and especially other
members of Grace Baptist
Church in Nashville, Tenn.
This provided the hook
for a fictional story about a
boy named Tyler who has
brain cancer and begins
writing letters to God full
of questions about his own
life, as well as prayers for
his family and friends as
they struggle with their
fears that he will die. The
letters end up in the hands
of a postal worker who is
struggling with alcoholism
and the breakup of his own
After he had finished the
basic script, Doughtie
found a notebook in which
Tyler had written some let-
ters to God. This made him
even more determined to
find producers who were
willing to tell the story
with the faith element
"All kinds of people are
touched by cancer and
they're going to know what
this movie is all about," he
said, days -before the
movie's April 9 release in

Conditions improving for mine rescue effort
BY VICKI SMITH AND
ASSOCIATED PRESS WRITERS
MONTCOAL, W.Va. -
Levels of noxious gas dropped
Thursday in a coal mine where
25 workers died in an explosion,
giving rescuers hope that they
might be able to get inside soon
to look for four still missing.
Teams spent more than four
hours working their way through
the Upper Big Branch mine by
rail car and on foot in the morn-
ing, but had to turn back because
of an explosive mix of gases in
the area they needed to search.
Crews at the surface resumed
drilling in an effort to get fresh
air into the mine. Gov. Joe
Manchin said Thursday evening
that the levels were near those
"We're just moving as quickly
as we can," Manchin said. "We

Rescue teams had made it
within 500 feet of an airtight
chamber with four days worth of
food, water and oxygen where
they hoped the miners might have
sought refuge Monday after the
worst U.S. mining disaster in
more than two decades.
Chris Adkins, chief operating
officer for mine owner Massey
Energy Co., said the rescue teams
were angry when told to abandon
the mission, but their safety was
paramount. He said the teams are
off their feet and resting, but too
anxious to sleep.
Massey's chief executive offi-
cer, Don Blankenship, continued
to defend his company's record
and disputed accusations from
miners that he puts coal profits
ahead of safety.
"To some extent the fact that
there were more survivors than
those that are lost suggests that
the mine was in pretty good
shape relative' to what mines
would have been in the past and
hopefully by today's standards,"
he told The Associated Press in
an interview Thursday. There
were 61 miners in Upper Big
Branch when it was rocked by the
Despite the increasingly slim
chance of finding anyone alive,
Adkins said he considered
Thursday's effort a rescue mis-
"I still believe in God, I
believe, and I'm not gonna give
up," he said.
The rescue crews did not get
far enough to see the bodies of
the dead or if anyone had made it
to the chamber. Theyknew where
the bodies would be because res-
cuers made it that far before
gases forced them out of the mine
after the explosion Monday.
Officials were not sure what
caused the high gas levels this
time but said a drop in barometric
pressure as a storm rolled in
might be to blame.
The rescue crews were leaving
their equipment behind so they
did not have to lug it back in with
them when they returned.
Manchin said the families of
those still in the mine were being
"These are the strongest,
toughest people I've ever seen,"
he said. "These people can han-
dle about anything you put up."
Rescuers had already had to
wait to enter ihe mine until crews
drilled holes deep into the earth
to ventilate lethal carbon monox-
ide and highly explosive hydro-
gen as well as methane gas,
which has been blamed for the
explosion. The air quality was
deemed safe enough early in the
day for four teams of eight mem-
bers each to go in, but later tests
showed the air was too dangerous
Adkins said rescue teams
described seeing evidence of "a
horrendous explosion and a lot of
He also said they may have
found an alternate route that will
allow them to get where they
need to be faster when they can
safely go back in.
Once that happens, rescuers
will have to walk through an area
officials have described as strewn
with bodies, twisted railroad
track, shattered concrete block
walls and vast amounts of dust.
Each team member wears 30
pounds of breathing equipment,
lugs first-aid equipment and must
try to see through total darkness

BY DUSTIN KENT
FLORIDAN SPORTS EDITOR
The Pensacola Pirates defeated Chipola 7-5
Wednesday night in Marianna to claim the three-game
series with the Indians, winning two in a row after
dropping the opener.

two innings, and held off a Chipola rally by keeping
the Indians scoreless in the final six innings.

got the win, going 3 2/3 innings and allowing four
earned runs on four hits, six walks and three strike-
But it was JJ McLaughlin who starred on the mound
for the Pirates, pitching 5 1/3 dominating innings, sur-
rendering just four hits, no walks and striking out six.
Rodney Quintero started for Chipola, but he could-
n't make it out of the second inning. Quintero allowed.
three earned runs on three hits and four walks.
The Pirates were able to break the game open in the
second with six runs, chasing Quintero after loading
the bases on two walks and a single.
Garrett Baker was brought on in relief, but Josh
Tanski singled to score Joshua McDorman and Jordan
Williams, to put Pensacola up 3-0.
Two batters later, Josh Doyle came up with a two-
RBI double to push the lead to five.
An RBI sacrifice fly by Saxon Butler and an RBI
single by Zach Magaha finished off the scoring for the
Pirates, who led 7-0 going into the bottom of the sec-
ond. Chipola came back with three runs in the bottom
of the second, capitalizing on two Pensacola errors
and an RBI double by Jonathan Gilbert.
Michael Revell and LeVon Washington each home-
red in the third to cut the deficit to two runs at 7-5.
The Indians had a chance to break through in the
fourth inning, as they loaded the bases with two outs
Pensacola replaced Davis with McLaughlin, and he
got Washington to fly out to end the threat.
The Indians stranded two more runners in the fifth
and two more in the eighth, as they were unable to
come up with the big hit to tie or take the lead.

The IRS will
BY BRUCE WILLIAMS
DEAR BRUCE: I have
been waiting patiently for
my W-2 form from my
employer from last year,
where I only worked for
four months. I decided to
go in person to see where it
was and they have sold the
business to someone else.
The new owner says he is
not responsible for my W-
2: What can I do? How can
I file my taxes when I don't
have a W-2? -- G.T.
DEAR G.T.: The IRS
understands that these
things happen. If you have
pays stubs or some other
accurate indicator of the
amount withheld, submit
these with your tax returns
and an explanation. In the
absence of any documents,
the IRS has a lorm that you
can complete hopefully
with the help of your tax
DEAR BRUCE: Is there
any grant money out there
available to the elderly for
fixing up their homes? I'm
75 and live on a limited
income with no savings. I
would like to pay off the
mortgage and do some
badly needed repairs on the
house, but I just don't have
the money. Is there any
help out there that I don't
know about? -- Jim in
DEAR JIM: Unhappily,
I don't know of any nation-
al program that will allow
you to make repairs on
your house. However, you
may find some type of
assistance program in your
local community. Check
with your social services
office in your city or coun-
ty. Ask whether there are
any grants available. In the
absence of any of these,
given the fact that you do
have a mortgage and a very
small income, you may
have to consider selling
your home. It may be an
unhappy choice, but it may
be one that you have to

Partnerships are to be avoided
Concentration is my motto -first honesty, then indus-
try then concentration. ~Andrew Carnegie
One of the.hardest problems that we have to deal with is
when a partnership turns sour. It really is not a pleasant thing
to see as it takes so much time and effort to extricate the part-
ners. Normally, this separation takes 12 to 16 months, and
because many lawyersand experts are involved, it is also
very expensive. The number one cause of failed partnerships
is that they are formed for the wrong reason. Typically, these
alliances are formed when one partner feels that he or she is
missing some critical element for running a business.
Generally, I find this missing element is either marketing or
finance. For example, we had one partnership where the
originating partner was a great marketer, but she needed
someone to take care of everything else.
Another predominant reason why partnerships fail is theft.
I really do not know why this happens so frequently, but my
guess would be that one partner feels as if there is an imbal-
ance in the partnership. This perceived imbalance could be,
for example, disproportionate hours worked or different
competency levels. Or perhaps it happens simply because no
one is watching them, and they think they can get away with
it. Whatever the motive, theft destroys partnerships. Trust
between partners is critical to keeping the business running,
and once that trust is breached, the partnership implodes.
We were helping a business in the healthcare industry.
This business was thriving, but the founding owner felt that
he did not have the necessary financial skills. He was great
at running and marketing the business, but he lacked'both the
skills and knowledge to effectively manage the entire opera-
tion. As a result, he went into business with a partner that he
thought had the skills to handle the finances. Additionally, he
thought this new partner would be able to bring in the funds
needed to finance a necessary expansion.
After six months, the new partner would never allow the
originating partner to see the financial or manage any of the
money. Then, while I was meeting one morning with the
partners, it came out that none of the credit cards that the
new partner was using to finance the business were being
pulled down as the firm was very, very profitable.
Something was wrong, and I must have had a very strange
look on my face because the originating partner says that
moment was his turning point. He realized then and there
that theft was probably going on.
It has been so painful for the originating partner to prose-
cute the partner that he thought would save his business.
From hindsight however, he realized that if he had done
some due diligence, he would have discovered that his for-
mer partner had a history of problems.
After having gone through this mess, the originating part-
ner now realizes that he has the skills and the confidence to
run his business that he never had before. While this was
clearly a painful experience, there were also some very tan-
gible benefits, and the business is now moving towards a
sound financial future.
You are wise to avoid partnerships, but if you must have
one, make sure there is a very clear partnership agreement
that protects both parties should a problem ever arise.
You can do this!

vertibles, the Infiniti G37,
Lexus IS 250 and Audi A5 all
posted "Very Good" overall
The Infiniti G37 and Lexus
IS 250 earned overall road test
scores of 77, slightly outdis-
tancing the Audi A5 convert-
ible, which earned a "Very
Good" test score of 74. All
three fall among the better
models in the category, which
included the previously tested
Volkswagen Eos and BMW
The G37 is a hardtop con-
vertible based on the sporty G,
consistently a top-performer
in CR's tests. The IS 250 is
pleasant and refined but it's
not as sporty. The A5 is stylish
and luxurious and its soft top
can be operated on the move.
CR also tested two smaller,
less-expensive, sportier con-
vertibles, each with a manual
transmission - the Mini
Cooper S, which earned a 77
road test score, and the Mazda
MX-5 Miata Grand Touring,
which earned an 89 road test
Only the Miata is

age predicted reliability based
on CR's Annual Auto Survey
of its more than 7 million print
and Web subscribers, and per-
formed at least adequately if
crash-tested or included in a
government rollover test.
Prices ranged from $44,400
for the IS 250 to $49,300 for
the Audi A5 among the sedan-
based convertibles. The Miata
and Mini Cooper cost $31,150
and $32, 850, respectively.
- Infiniti G37. The G37
convertible's rideis stiffer and

and is very responsive.
- Lexus IS. The IS 250

Up to 200 buried, feared dead in Rio mudslide
By BRADLEY BROOKS
AssoclA\ID PRESS WRITER
NITEROI, Brazil - As many
as 200 people were buried under
tons of mud and feared dead on
Thursday after a slum built atop
a former landfill gave way in the
latest deadly landslide to hit
metro Rio de Janeiro.
If confirmed, the deaths would
raise the toll sharply from the
153 people already known to
have died this week in slides
triggered by record rains.
"We know that about 60 hous-
es were buried," Rio state health
secretary Sergio Cortes told The
Associated Press. "It is hard to
say exactly how many people
were buried under the mud as
well, but a worst-case scenario is
The slide that hit late
Wednesday was a wall of black
earth and garbage about 40 feet
(12 meters) high that plowed
through the Morro Bumba shan-
tytown before coming to a halt
along the edge of road in
Niteroi, a city of about 500,000
across the bay from Rio.
On Thursday, crews with
heavy machinery dug through
the debris and about a dozen
trucks lined up to haul it off.
News broadcasts .showed one
house on top of the hill with only
two walls standing, and a bed, a
night stand and a television
inside. Everything else went
down with the slide.
Residents told local media
that a small church, a day care
center and several business were
in the area and likely buried.
"In our experience, it's an
instant death" for anyone caught
in such a slide, said Pedro
Machado, undersecretary of Rio
state's Civil Defense depart-
The ground underneath the
shantytown - decades of accu-
mulated trash - was especially
unstable and vulnerable to the

SPakistan lawmakers vote to curb leader's powers ,
BY ASIF SHAHZAD
ASSOCIATED PRESS WRITER
ISLAMABAD - Pakistan's lower
house of parliament unanimously
approved a constitutional amendment
Thursday that strips the president of
powers inherited from the country's
former military ruler, a key step in
implementing a long-standing opposi-
tion demand that could reduce pres-
sure on the U.S.-allied leader.
The bill has cross-party support and
its passage could help calm political
tensions as Pakistan grapples with .a
violent Taliban-led insurgency. It
transfers a variety of powers, includ-
ing the ability to fire an elected gov-
ernment and appoint military chiefs
and judges, from the office of the
president to the prime minister.
"We have empowered the masses
today," said Prime Minister Yusuf
Raza Gilani in his address to the
National Assembly after the televised
vote. "The impossible you made pos-
sible has established the sovereignty
The bill must now be passed by a
two-thirds majority of the Senate, or
upper house of parliament, and be
signed by President Asif Ali Zardari
to be implemented. Approval by both
is expected since the amendment was
drafted by a committee that included
representatives from all parties un par-
liament. The opposition had criticized
Zardari for dragging his feet on relin-
quishing the powers, which he first
promised to do when he was elected
in 2008 as the successor to Gen.
"It is a historic day for us," said
National Assembly speaker Fehmida
Mirza. "It is a celebration for all dein-
Lawmakers thumped their desks as
the house approved the bill and shout-
ed "Hang Musharraf!" in reference to
the former military leader. The vote
was 292-0, with 50 lawmakers absent.
"Today, in a true sense, we are giv-
ing you a parliamentary form of gov-
ernment," said Gilani.
The changes mean Zardari will
occupy a largely ceremonial post, but
since he derives much of his power
from his position as co-head of the
largest party, he will still wield signif-
icant influence over the government.
Furthermore, Gilani is a loyal member
of Zardari's party and a strong sup-
porter of the president.

Afghan police: 5 suicide
bombers arrested in Kabul
BY AMIR SHAH AND
ASSOCIATED PRESS WRITERS
KABUL - Acting on an
intelligence tip, Afghan
police said they arrested,
five would-be suicide
bombers Thursday as they
tried to enter Kabul, thwart-
ing a major attack and cap-
turing the largest such team
ever in the capital. Police
believe the bombers were
sent by an al-Qaida-linked
insurgent group based in
Pakistan, and their capture
follows widespread rumors
that militants were plan-
ning attacks in the diplo-
matic quarter of Kabul.

TEHRAN, Iran - Iran's
intelligence minister accused
three Americans jailed since
crossing the border from Iraq
in July of having links to
U.S. intelligence services,
state TV reported Thursday.

that Tehran has "credible

He did not elaborate but said
the evidence would be
revealed to news media soon.
It was the first time a sen-

against cooperating with

the report said.

Just forget about it
Dear Annie: A while back, I went on
Facebook and found many friends I had not
heard from in years: My 21-year-old grand-
daughter sent me a message that she wanted to
"befriend me," and I agreed. "Nicole" is a col-
lege student and lives about an hour away.
I soon began receiving notes in which Nicole
swore and made crude remarks. I told her to
watch what she wrote, as she should not do this
online or off, and reminded her that those mes-
sages could be seen by everyone in
the family. However, she kept it
up, so my husband wrote saying
that such terribly crude comments
could not be coming from the
girl he knew. I did the only ( ï¿½*'
thing I could to save her repu-
tation with my family and took \ t
her off my list of friends. '
Prior to this, Nicole had '
stopped calling us, never came to
visit (except on Christmas, which she
said she did not enjoy and was glad when
it was over) and didn't return any of ou
We talked to our daughter (Nicole's
mother) about this,'and she said there was
nothing she could do. I wanted my daughter to
tell Nicole that what she says online could hurt
her in the future, and that swearing is not the
way to get her point across. She sounds angry
at the world. What can I do? - It's Cold in
Dear Maine! Nothing. You have told Nicole
how you feel, and you have expressed your dis-
appointment to her mother. You cannot protect
In yesterday's deal, West was on lead against six spades. He
had seven clubs to the K-Q-J-10-9, two low diamonds, a heart
void and four low trumps. He led the club king. But a couple of
sharp-eyed readers noted that the queen would have been a bet-
ter lead. Why? If you know the answer, you will have no trouble
spotting West's correct opening lead in this deal. What would be
your choice against four hearts?
First, let's go back to yesterday's deal. West leads the club
.queen because he hopes his partner will win the trick with the ace
and return a heart so that he can ruff it. West leads his highest
"losing" club as a suit-preference signal. If West had had a dia-
mond void, he would have led the club nine.
In this deal, when North bids diamonds and South raises,
West should realize that his partner has at most one diamond. So
he should lead that suit..
Normally West would lead the diamond seven, top of nothing.
But not here. Since his fast entry is in clubs, the lower-ranking of
the other two side suits, he leads the diamond four.
Assuming East is on the same wavelength, he will ruff and
shift to a club. West will take the trick with his ace and give his
partner a second ruff, this time selecting the diamond seven to
ask for a spade return.
Sooner or later, West gets the spade king as the setting trick.
If that happens, North-South will then discuss how they could
have got to five diamonds. (Even six diamonds can be made if
East does not lead a spade.)
the girl from her own foolishness, so we urge
you to back off before it further damages your
relationship. Since her Facebook postings are
so troublesome, you were smart to remove her
from your friend list. Now forget about it.

Nuke treaty signed
BY JENNIFER LOVEN
AP WHITE HOUSE CORRESPONDENT
PRAGUE - The nuclear weapons
cuts President Barack Obama and
Russian President Dmitry Medvedev
signed on Thursday would shrink the
Cold War superpowers' arsenals to the
lowest point since the frightening arms
race of the 1960s. But they won't touch
the "loose nukes" and suitcase bombs
seen as the real menace in today's age
'"This ceremony is a testament to the.
truth that old adversaries can forge new
partnerships," Obama declared. "It is
just one step on a longer journey."
The warheads covered by the treaty
are lethal relics of the Cold War, and
even with the planned reductions there
will be enough firepower on each side
to devastate the world many times over.
And of more immediate concern are
attempts by terrorist groups such as al-
Qaida and nations such as Iran and
North Korea to acquire or use nuclear
weapons. Obama and Medvedev
showed solidarity for a spring show-
down with Iran. And, beginning
Monday, leaders of 47 countries will
gather in Washington in an effort to
prevent the spread of nuclear weapons,
crack down on illicit nuclear traffick-
ing and lock down vulnerable nuclear
materials around the world.
Introduced Thursday with trumpet
fanfare, the two grinning presidents sat
at an ornate table in Prague's hilltop
presidential castle and put their signa-
tures to a landmark successor to the
1991 Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty.
Nearly a year in the making, the
"New START" signaled a bold open-
ing in previously soured U.S.-Russia
relations. If ratified by both nations'
President Barack Obama and Russian president Dmitry Medvedev smile as
they sign the New START treaty Thursday at the Prague Castle in Prague.

legislatures, it will shrink the limit of
nuclear warheads to 1,550 each over
seven years, down about a third from
the current ceiling of 2,200.
Ratification in the U.S. Senate will
hardly be automatic, requiring 67 votes
in the 100-member chamber during a
congressional election year when
cooperation can be hard to come by.
Beyond that, urgent international
nuclear tasks still face the two leaders.
For example, they are trying to forge
agreement among themselves and four
other nations - China, France,
Britain, and Germany - on how to
tackle Iran's continued defiance of
United Nations demands that it cease
The West insists Tehran seeks to
develop nuclear weapons; Tehran, says
it is after peaceful nuclear power.
At Obama's side, Medvedev made
Russia's support for considering a
fourth round of U.N. sanctions on Iran
clearer than ever. "We cannot turn a
blind eye to this," he said of Tehran's
But that was not the main question
heading into the leaders' talks, which
ran overtime to about two hours. At
issue, as representatives from the six
partners prepare for what Obama
called "ramped-up" discussions in
New York, is how weak any rfew sanc-
tions regime would need to be to get
Moscow on board.- not to mention
China, an even more stubborn holdout.
Medvedev said sanctions should be
"smart" - designed to change behav-
ior, not to bring down the hardline
Iranian government or impose hardship
on Iran's people. The Russian leader
said he had outlined for Obama "our
limits for such sanctions," and Obama
Russia expert Mike McFaul said those
discussions got very specific.
Emaciated children signal crisis in southern Sudan
BY JASON STRAZIUSO
ASSOCIATED PRESS WRITER
AKOBO, Sudan - Three-
day-old Odong Obong lay in
the hospital bed, his pencil-
thin arms almost motionless
and his shriveled, gaunt face
resembling that of an elderly
man. Emaciated babies and
young children throughout
the ward bore the signs of
hunger: exposed ribs and dis-
tended stomachs. Outside,
old villagers reclined motion-
less in the shade, too frail to
walk. The U.N. calls this the
"hungriest place on Earth"
after years of drought and
conflict, with aid agencies
already feeding 80,000 peo-
ple here. A doctor says the
worst is yet to come.
Two years of failed rains
and tribal clashes have laid
the foundation for Africa's
newest humanitarian crisis.
The World Food Program
quadrupled its assistance lev-
els from January to March in
the Akobo region of south-
International aid agencies
are bracing for the worst.
Even if spring rains material-
ize this year, the harvest
won't come in until fall.
"And if there is no rain, it
will get, worse," said Dr.
Galiek Galou, one of three
doctors at the hospital in this
town on the border with
Ethiopia. "If you stay here for
a week you'll have problems,
even if you have money," he
said. "There is nothing to
Southem Sudan lies in a
drought-prone belt of Africa,
but the situation has been
exacerbated by rising inter-
tribal violence that claimed
more than 2,000 lives in
2009. Because of the global
financial meltdown, the gov-
ernment has fewer available
The food crisis is also a
legacy of a devastating north-
south civil war of more than
21 years that left 2 million
people dead and many more
displaced. That conflict is
separate from the war in the
western Sudanese region of
Darfur, which began in 2003
and has killed 300,000.
The aid groups Save the
Children and Medair have'
canvassed the Akobo com-
munity for the past week,

Chile gives U.S.
BY MICHAEL WARREN AND MEG KINNARD
ASSOCIATED PRESS WRITERS
SANTIAGO, Chile - With President Barack
Obama shifting his nuclear nonproliferation strategy
to rogue states and terrorists, Chile has become an
example of how small countries can play a big part in
making the world safer.
Vast amounts of highly enriched uranium, or HEU,
is being stored in relatively insecure locations around
the world. Just 25 kilograms (55 pounds) of it - the
size of a grapefruit - could create a mushroom
cloud of radioactivity and devastate an entire city if
detonated. At a nonproliferation summit Monday in -
Washington, Obama will encourage leaders from 47
countries to work with the U.S. to secure and remove
this weapons-grade HEU from reactors, as Chile
finally did last month.
"We are happy to see it go," Feriando Lopez of the
Chilean Nuclear Energy Commission told The
Associated Press, which exclusively witnessed the
secret transfer of the material from reactors near
Santiago to the United States.
"Countries normally don't want to be loaded with
waste .from other countries," Lopez acknowledged.
"To put it in a safe place is valuable for everybody."
The new U.S. strategy considers a nuclear attack
by terrorists or the spread of nuclear weapons tech-
nology to rogue nations to be greater threats than the
Cold War fear of a communist enemy initiating a
Obama acknowledged the reduced threat from old
enemies as he and Russian President Dmitry
Medvedev signed a treaty Thursday to reduce the
number of nuclear warheads their governments have
ready to fire.
