Study: Cave diving is lu


Blue Spring


generates

$1 million a year
BY ASHLEY McKEEN
FLORIDAN STAFF WRITER

A recent article currently in an academ-
ic journal has revealed some interesting
data on the economic impact of one of
Jackson County's most beautiful and
potentially profitable natural resources,
Blue Springs.
The writers and researchers of the arti-
cle - O. Ashton Morgan and William
Huth of Appalachian State University in
North Carolina and University of West
Florida, respectively - developed a sin-
gle-site travel cost model to show the eco-
nomic value associated with recreational
cave diving.
The end results, published recently in
"Resource and Energy Economics,"
amazed even the researchers. The article
states that under the spring's existing con-
ditions, the economic impact of each diver
was estimated to be approximately $146 to
$167 per person, per trip.* Based on the
number of expected trips this translates
into approximately $1,075 in annual per-
person economic impact, or $575,000 a
year.
However, Huth explained that since
publishing the article, he has since talked
to Blue Springs personnel who say the
number of divers has since doubled.
"So basically we are not looking at
$575,000 in annual surplus, we're talking
more like a $1 million," Huth said. "Blue
Springs could easily, beyond the jails, be

potential demand among divers, if
improvement to access were made.
Huth and Morgan described in their arti-
cle that the cave has two potential ways to
grow in consumer demand.
The first is to improve access to. Twin
Caves Spring and Hole in the Rock Spring,
which are currently only accessible by
boat.
Second, if divers were granted access to
a newly discovered passage, this too
would have an impact.
Huth explained that Blue Springs,
whose main, water-filled passage extends
approximately a horizontal mile, also has
many side passages. A newly found'side
passage led to a new entrance to .the cave,
via a sink hole located on private property.
Huth explained that at that entrance,
more passages were discovered and this
has effectively doubled the known size of
the Jackson Blue Spring cave system.
The problem is the sink hole is on pri-
vate property. And according to Huth,
there is a lack of agreement with the owner
to give access to the public.
Huth and Morgan were then interested
in a hypothetical situation. If these two
conditions were to improve, and if divers
were to gain access to the newly discov-
ered entrance and Twin Caves access were
improved, how would that affect the eco-
nomic impact.
The research team surveyed all Blue
Springs divers for the month of April
2009. Out of 525 surveys mailed, 186
were received back..
Results revealed that in terms of trip
counts, the sampled divers made, on aver-
age, almost nine freshwater cave dives per
year at Blue Spring for the 2008-09 dive


season.

Dothan man dies on 231 Runaway

BY GREG PHILLIPS
MEDIA GENERA. NEWS SERVICE
A Dothan man died Friday
evening just a few feet from the
Florida-Alabama state line after
his vehicle crashed into the back
of an 18-wheeler.
James Bruce Tyler, 27, was
driving his Nissan Altima north
on U.S. Highway 231 at about
4:50 p.m. when the accident
occurred, according to Alabama
State Troopers spokesman Kevin
Cook.
"The initial investigation indi-
cates that Mr. Tyler's vehicle was
.traveling north on U.S. 231 at a
high rate of speed when he
slammed into the rear of a 2007
Kenworth," Cook said.
Houston County Coroner
Robert Byrd said Tyler likely
never slowed down before the
collision.
"It appears that the 18-wheeler
had stopped in the outside line of'
231 North, and the other driver

Insecurity

Kiss your insecurities good-by
and discover the joy of living
with confidence!

Since Eve ripped the first leaf from a tree in
the Garden, insecurities have plagued the
female gender. Today's women - young and ,
old churched and unchurched, rich and
poor - are suffering from such deeply
embedded wounds that most don't even
know how to identify them, and beyond
that they can't imagine living without them.

Our Opinion




Some good


news at


last


It's nice to get some good news out
of Arthur G. Dozier School for Boys.
Plagued by reports and incidents of
abuse and maltreatment over the
years, the facility clearly needed a
firm hand and has apparently found
one.
Michael Cantrell was tapped by the
Department of Juvenile Justice to take
over at Dozier after a less-than-stellar
evaluation resulted in the removal of
the previous superintendent. A recent
quality audit by the state found that a
number of needed improvements had
been made, and made swiftly. Cantrell
and the staff at Dozier-are to be com-
mended for addressing these-problems
in a professional manner.
Detention facilities, especially ones
for juveniles, can be problematic
places. The residents are there largely
because, for reasons varying from
poor parenting to bad choices, they
have run afoul of the law once too
often. Yet the main.purpose of these
detention facilities - indeed, of any
place of incarceration - is rehabilita-
tion. The residents need to be taught
the life skills they need so they can re-
enter society and become productive
members of their community.
Not all can be saved, but numerous
studies and pilot programs have
demonstrated that proper education
and opportunities for those incarcerat-
ed can significantly reduce the number
who will offend again. That goal is
hard to achieve if the facility is poorly
run. We hope Cantrell can continue to
make strides for the good of the resi-
-dents who will eventually be released.

Touring the Civil War battlefield


BY MARSHA MERCER

Let's put aside the political
fallout from Virginia Gov.
Robert F. McDonnell's pivot
on slavery and the Civil War
and consider where we go
from here.
First, the McDonnell debacle
reminded many people that the
150th anniversary of the Civil
War is upon us and will loom
large through 2015. Second,
even though the United States
has its first African-American
president, thecountry still
struggles with racial and cul-
tural issues borne of the Civil
War. And, third, the sesquicen-
tennial is not a cash cow.
The Republican governor's
excuse for failing to mention
slavery in his proclamation
naming April Confederate
History Month was that he had'
his eye on tourism.
It was bizarre for
McDonnell, in his zeal for fat-
ter sales tax revenues and his
desire to please fans of the
Confederacy, to overlook the
key cause of the war and the
historic significance of its
observance. And, under fire, he
quickly apologized.


My guess, though; is that
McDonnell isn't the only elect-
ed official who sees sesquicen-
tennial dollar signs. North and
South are united these days by
a sluggish economy and tight
municipal and state budgets.
Additional revenues from
Yanks and Rebs are welcome.
And yet, we should approach
the bloodiest conflict in
American history thoughtfully,
soberly and with respect.
Historians have warned for
years that we need to be care-
ful of the narrative we create
around the anniversary.
Renowned Civil War historian
James I. Robertson Jr. helped
plan 100th anniversary events
during the 1960s civil rights
era. Fifty years later, Robertson
is head of the Virginia Center
for Civil War Studies at
Virginia Tech.
"This is a commemoration,
not a celebration," Robertson
told the Richmond Times-
Dispatch in September 2007.
"There's nothing to celebrate in
the deaths of between 700,000
and 1 million American peo-
ple."
McDonnell chose to revive
Confederate History Month,


which had been started by
then-Gov. George Allen, a
Republican, in 1997 but
dropped by McDonnell's two
Democratic predecessors. He
could have included the anti-
slavery language used by Jim
Gilmore, the last Republican
governor who issued such a
proclamation, but McDonnell
chose to reach all the way back
to Allen's 1997 proclamation,
which was silent on slavery.
This was surprising in a state
that has taken the national lead
on anniversary events. The leg-
islature created a state
Sesquicentennial American
Civil War Commission, and the
National Endowment for the
Humanities has awarded about
$1 million to "An American
Turing Point" activities,
which include a traveling exhi-
bition, permanent online exhi-
bition as well as educational
programs.
With increased scrutiny on
the message, it won't be easy
to strike the right tone for
anniversary events.
McDonnell, after first ignoring
slavery, then said in his apolo-
gy: "The abomination of slav-
ery divided our nation,


deprived people of their God-
given inalienable rights, and
led to the Civil War. Slavery
was an evil, vicious and inhu-
mane practice which degraded
human beings to property, and
it has left a stain on the soul of
this state and nation."
About 28 states claim Civil
War ties, and nearly every town
and city of any size has a
sesquicentennial planning com-
mittee. In their enthusiasm,
some communities haven't yet
gotten the message that the
anniversary should be more
than a celebration cum eco-
nomic stimulus package.
This week, Clarksville,
Tenn., launched its 150th Civil
War anniversary activities with
Confederate re-enactors firing
a replica of an 1841 cannon.
News reports quoted local peo-
ple eager to see more tourists,
and the town's Web site report-
ed, "It is said time heals all
wounds and indeed and we are
looking at the approaching
sesquicentennial of the Civil
War id 2011 with a air of cele-
bration..."
After nearly 150 years,
we've got nearly five years to .
get it right.


LETTERS TO THE EDITOR


Candidate seeks
another term

Dear editor,
Many times readers write in
to complain, but I want to take
this opportunity to praise
something. I love the town of
Sneads. It is the best place to
live, work and raise a family.
My family is lived here for
generations and I plan to live
here until the day I die. My
love for this town led me to
serve as a council member for
12 years.
We have a top volunteer fire
department, which I am proud
to be a part of. Through me
and my fellow council mem-
bers' efforts, our town secured
our fire department the best
equipment so that they can
serve our community and save
the lives of our citizens.
Besides taking care of the
safety of our residents, I have
also worked to secure facilities
where they can have fun. Our
Adam Tucker Wilson park is a
gem of the community.
Through grants we have built
new ballparks, picnic facilities
and playgrounds. We are now
starting construction on a skate
park on the premises, a place
where our youth can have fun
and be safe.
I have worked with the
council to weather this tough
economy. I have tried to mini-
mize the effect on our residents
and have fought against
changes that would hurt our
economy. I joined other offi-
cials to fight to keep Three
Rivers State Park, a source of
tourist revenue, and
Apalachicola Correctional
Institution, a source of employ-


ment for many'residents,
opened. Both would have had a
major negative economic
impact on our town if the state
had closed the doors.
I see a bright future for our
town. If I have the honor to
continue to serve the town, I
would love to work to find a
way to hire a recreational
director in order to provide
more services for our resi-
dents. I want to seek grants for
expanding our services for
seniors in the community,
including building a senior
center. I want to continue to
work to keep costs down for
our residents. I want our town
to continue to be a shining
example of what a small town
can be.
I am proud of our communi-
ty and proud of my opportunity
to help it become all it can be.
I thank everyone for giving me
that privilege. I hope that I con-
tinue to have the honor to work
for our town and great citizens.

Ricky Kim Whittington

Don't believe what
some say about
Amendment 4

Dear editor,
This letter responds to the
Florida Chamber of
Commerce's latest misinforma-
tion regarding Florida
Amendment 4.
Let's start with their state-
ment that Amendment 4's pas-
sage would stall development.
There's already enough land
approved for development in
Florida's local master plans to
accommodate 100 million resi-


dents - five times more peo-
ple than now. So there's no
need for land-use changes to
add residential developments to
our agricultural lands and wet-
lands, and to increase the
height and density of our
neighborhoods.
But that isn't enough for
some. From 2007 to 2009,
politicians around Florida
voted to change local plans to
allow a staggering amount of
overdevelopment - 520,000
more houses, 1.2 million more
people, and 1.3 billion more
square feet of commercial and
office space (Florida
Department of Community
Affairs).
The fact is, developers have
plenty of land set aside for
building for now and the
future. They aren't building
because they overbuilt in a
frenzy and crashed the market,
wrecking our home values,
increasing our taxes to cover
the infrastructure for their way-
out developments, and putting
thousands out of work.'
Amendment 4's opponents
in the sprawl industry also
falsely state that Amendment 4
would put "all land-use
changes" to a public vote.
Amendment 4 does not
require voter approval of every
new hotel and grocery store,
but it would require voters to
approve changes to their com-
munity's land-use plan. For
example, voters would decide
if a parcel, far from municipal
services, needed to be changed
from farming to housing.
When a developer insists on
building outside our plan's
development area, our commis-
sioners will review and vote on
that proposal, just as they do


now. Amendment 4 simply
adds one important step at the
end: you'll get the opportunity
to veto or approve the commis-
sion's decision on the next reg-
ularly scheduled Election Day.
No special elections, and no
expense, required.
On average, Florida commis-
sions approve three or four
local land-use plan changes per
year. There will doubtless be
fewer in future, as developers
realize that they'll have to
show that their proposed
change is in the public interest.
Our plans weren't supposed
to be changed willy-nilly, at
every land speculator's whim.
But that's what's been happen-
ing.
Sifice the 1985 Growth
Management Act, a blizzard of
land-use plan changes has
assailed one community after
another, making wise long-
range planning impossible.
Planning has been gutted.
People all over Florida have
protested unwanted develop-
ments, only to find the deck
stacked against them by the
building industry and their
well-rewarded, pro-develop-
ment politicians.
Finally, Amendment 4 does-
n't destroy representative gov-
ernment. The people are gov-
erned by their consent, and in
this instance we'll be regaining
our decision-making power
ovei land-use changes by hav-
ing the final say at the end of
the local politicians' approval
process.

Setting the right priorities


BY THOMAS VINCENT
MURPHY


As a youngster, I enjoyed
visiting the home of one of
kny best friends, for several
reasons. For one, I was treated
with respect and kindness by
his family from the time I
entered their home until the
time I left. Secondly, his
mother kept one of the neatest
and cleanest homes I have
ever been in.
Last, but not least, the
cleanness of their home made
it easy for me to say "yes"
when I was offered some of
his mom's delicious food.
They were residents in an
area known as the projects or
he ghetto; terms that have
been used by the powers that
be to describe certain areas
where some of our citizens
reside.
As I grew older and began
to see the homes (inside and
out) of different people I
became acquainted with, I
learned that some of the most,
beautiful homes on the out-
side looked unorganized,
sloppy and in some instances
just plain dirty when you
entered their front doors.
Though many people are
not fortunate enough to live in
an attractive or expensive
house, what they do with
whatever they have has a lot
to do with their'character and
whether they respect them-
selves.
People are 6ften judged on
their education, how much
cash they make, where they
live and on the color of their
skin. There are many of our
citizens who live in very nice
neighborhoods, dress well,
and use some of the biggest
words in the dictionary. But if
you were to step inside their
home, you would be very sur-
prised by the'appearance, and
I don't mean in a good way.
More and more in life, you
will find that appearances can
be deceiving. Some of the
nicest, most courteous and
respectable people I have


been fortunate enough to
meet live in adverse, chal-
lenging situations.
My parents always taught
me that it's what's inside that
counts, and that's what often
determines what takes place
on the outside. Of course, my
parents were referring to peo-
ple and their character.
Cleanliness is one of the
things you expect from an
individual with -bgh stan-
dards.
No matter if you're rich,.
living well, hardly making it,
or just plain broke, the kind of
person you are inside is what
determines how you make it
through this life, and how you
influence others.
Sooner or later life teaches
each of us lessons that stick
with us. The continuous


emphasis on how we should
look and how we should dress
has led many people to con-
centrate on appearances,
rather than their character.
Have you ever met a very
attractive person who looks
great from head to toe, but
when you hear their conversa-
tion and learn what they're
really all about, they seem to
lose their glow? There are
some folks who become less
attractive as their true charac-
ter rises to the surface.
The fact that each of us will
change outwardly as we grow
older should remind us that
there's more to life than assets
and good looks. Age will
change your looks,* but you
can keep your same personal-
ity and character throughout
your life. It's what's inside


that really counts. Being con-
tent and enjoying life whether
you're in a mansion or a
shack is what it's all about.


Life is too valuable to base
everything on where you live,
what you've got, who you can
impress and how many


degrees you can get. Thank
God for life and enjoy it as
much as you can. Don't
worry, be happy.

MARIANNA, GRACIEVILLE, AND THE BOOKMOBILE
Book Review
"The Post-Birthday World"
By Lionel Shriver
Reviewed by Barbara Grant
This is a book of two stories - staying in a mar-
riage, or changing partners. The tales are intertwined,
and ,the reader does not know the choice Irina makes.
In a way, it's two imaginary lives; both with excite-
ment and a host of possibilities and consequences. It
is, at the same time, unpredictable and thought-pro-
voking. It makes the reader think of choices he or she
has made, and how life could be so different or how
sweet life is, as it is.
Irina is a lovable character, even though often
mixed up about what makes life worth living. In her
soul-searching, she uncovers the unpredictability of
human nature.
The double story line gives two contrasting roman-
tic outcomes, so you may participate in the book's
ending.
To give you a clue about the wit of the book, you
know that many books have a quotation on the intro-
ductory page, usual a famous one followed by the
name of the person quoted. This book's quote:
"Nobody's perfect." -Known fact
Other books by Lionel Shriver: "Game Control," "A
Perfectly Good Family," "We Need to Talk about
Kevin."

Report: Fla. GOP spent lavishly on staffer's card


BY ADAM C. SMITH
ST. PETERSBURG TIMES
ST. PETERSBURG - She was a 25-year-old junior
staffer when the Florida Republican Party gave her an
American Express card.
Over the next 2V2 years, nearly $1.3 million in charges
wound up on Melanie Phister's AmEx - $40,000 at a
London hotel, and nearly $20,000 in plane tickets for indict-
ed former House Speaker Ray Sansom, his wife and kids,
for starters. Statements show thousands spent on jewelry,
sporting goods and in one case $15,000 for what's listed as
a monthlong stay at a posh Miami Beach hotel, but which
the party says was a forfeited deposit.
The credit card records, obtained by the St. Petersburg
Times and Miami Herald, offer the latest behind-the-scenes
look at extravagant and freewheeling spending by the party
touting fiscal restraint. Not only did certain elite legislative
leaders have their own party credit cards to spend donors'
money with little oversight, but Phister's records show these
leaders also liberally used an underling's card - without
her knowledge, she says.
"I did not have the sole discretion to initiate credit card
spending," Phister said in an e-mail statement. "Over that
period of time, there were multiple instances when the card
was used to make purchases that I had no knowledge of, and
I did not regularly review the monthly credit card statements
which I understand were sent directly to the Party's account-
ing office."
Even after a series of embarrassing revelations over prof-
ligate credit card spending by the likes of Republican U.S.
Senate front-runner Marco Rub, Sansom.and incoming
House Speaker Dean Cannon - and pending state and fed-
eral investigations of party finances - revelations of the
huge charges on Phister's card had veteran GOP fundraisers
apoplectic.
"Oh my God. I can't believe it," said Al Hoffman, a top
fundraiser from Fort Myers, when told of the $1.258 million


on Phister's card. "See, that's it. They have an underling do
it all. There's no reason a young assistant should be ringing
up charges like that."
Phister served as finance director for state House cam-
paigns for 21/2 years starting in mid 2006.
She was a Republican Party employee who mainly
answered to Sansom, R-Destin, speaker-designate at the
time and overseeing House campaign operations. The job
involved planning fundraising events and often accompany-
ing Sansom and other legislative leaders on fundraising and
other political trips. Sansom was indicted by a grand jury
last year for inserting $6 million into the state budget for an
airport building that a friend and GOP contributor, Jay
Odom, wanted to use as an airplane hangar. That criminal
investigation revealed that Sansom charged more than
$170,000 on his party-issued credit card - everything from
plane tickets for his family to clothes to electronics.
Turns out Sansom spent heavily on Phister's card as well.
Her credit card statements include at least four sets of
plane tickets for Sansom, his wife and four kids. He also
ordered Phister to accompany him on a trade trip to London
in the summer of 2008. Phister brought her mother along at
Sansom's encouragement, and Phister's GOP AmEx saw
plenty of action: nearly $40,000 at a London hotel, and
more than $3,600 in sightseeing expenses.
"I can't believe it. Someone should be hanged for that,"
Mark Guzzetta, a Boca Raton developer who has raised mil-
lions of dollars for Republicans, said of the party allowing
so much spending on a low-level staffer's card.
Republican legislative leaders during that period were
raising many millions of dollars, and they note that it costs
money to raise money. So such Phister expenses as $1,200
for Broadway tickets in New York, or $19,000 at the Water
Club restaurant during a different New York City trip may
have beeh for evenings that raised many times that much.
Neither Phister nor the party would discuss the credit card
statements in detail, citing pending state and criminal feder-
al investigations into its financial activities as well as an


exhaustive "forensic audit" of party spending about to get
under way. "The Republican Party of Florida has hired the
firm Alston & Bird LLP to conduct an independent forensic
investigation of the party's finances. Members of the firm's
Special Matters and Investigations staff will review ques-
tionable credit card expenses to determine whether or not
the party may have been the victim of improper financial
dealings," said Florida Republican Party spokeswoman
Katie Betta.
"If the audit reveals any inappropriate expenses that have
not been reimbursed to the party, we will seek to collect
compensation from the individuals who incurred the
expense."
Judging what's an appropriate expense may be subjective.
For instance, Phister's AmEx shows $10,000 to a watch
company in California in August 2008. Republican donors
paid for Sansom to present every legislator, Democrat and
Republican alike, with a memento watch.
Phister's card paid for nearly $650,000 ,in lodging,
$60,000 in airfare - mostly commercial airlines - and
$66,000 for charter planes. The statements show
Republican donors also paid for plane tickets to Germany
for Phister and her mother.

The town of Grand

City officials have been

Metlife blimp makes Marianna stop


STAFF REPORT

Marianna residents had
their eyes on the sky
Thursday as the Metlife
Insurance Co. blimp float-
ed over the city late in the
afternoon.
Children in the area
posed for pictures as the
giant-sized "Snoopy" -
the company's corporate
mascot whose picture is on
the blimp - flew through
the air.
Snoopy has represented
the American insurance
company since the 1980s.
Snoopy One, Snoopy Two
and Snoopy Three are three
airships owned and operat-
ed by MetLife that provide
aerial coverage for sporting
events.
Metlife spokesperson
Shalana Morris says the


airship was just stopping
by.
"The airship was in tran-
sit on its way to a hanger in
Pompano Beach for main-
tenance," Morris said
Friday.
Coming from Houston,
the blimp took a break in
Louisiana and Marianna, to
break up the trip to
Florida's southern Atlantic
coast. According to Morris,
the blimp can only travel
about 400 miles a day, so
breaks are necessary for
long-distance trips.
Morris said that with the
Marianna Airport's low
traffic and large runway, it
made for a perfect
overnight landing place.
"We tend to stop in
Marianna a lot when travel-
ing back and forth,".Morris
said. "We land the airship


NOT A YEAR TO DIE
Back in 2003 or so, when the Bush tax cuts first came
in and estate tax exclusions started to rise, the popular
(if ghoulish) saying was, "Wait until 2010, when the
estate tax disappears! That's the year to die and save
your heirs money"
Forget itl Congress is expecting to reinstate the estate
tax this year, and make it retroactive to January 1.
Same with the generation-skipping tax. However, there
is still question about a return to last year's $3.5-
million exemption, and the eventual tax rate is still in
question.
Truth is, the no-estate-tax law could cost most people
much. much more. That's because of a provision
buried in it: Instead of inheriting property at its value
on the owner's date of death, heirs would inherit also
the original owner's basis on the property. That means
the heirs would be responsible for capital gains taxes
on any appreciated property when they sell it.
Should you review your will for tax reasons? Probably.

Obama emboldened for Supreme Court pick


BY BEN FELLER AND CHARLES BABINGTON
ASSOCIATED PRESS WRITERS

WASHINGTON - Emboldened by
success the first time around, President
Barack Obama is likely to pick the
Supreme Court nominee he wants and let
the confirmation fight proceed from there,
putting huge emphasis on a justice who
would bring a fight-for-the-little-guy sen-
sibility to the job.
Politics will certainly play into Obama's
calculus: He no longer has the votes in the
Senate to overcome the delaying tactic
known as the filibuster, and a minority
Republican Party in fierce opposition to
Obama's agenda has little incentive to
hand him a win just months before House
and Senate elections.
But Obama's strategy worked when he
chose Sonia Sotomayor to replace Justice
David Souter last year - announce the


criteria he deems the most vital for a nom-
inee, vet the nominees with no embarrass-
ing gaffes or leaks, and pick the one with
whom he feels the most comfort.
Confirmability was a factor then, not a
driver. Expect much the same now.
Obama's task is to replace the liberal
lion of the court, Justice John Paul
Stevens, who on Friday announced his
coming retirement.
In quick succession, Obama has a rare
chance to choose two justices who could
shape the court's rulings for decades. He
has given every sign that- he approaches
this decision the way aggressive coaches
prefer to call strategy-- playing to win, as
opposed to playing not to lose.
In choosing a nominee over the next few
weeks, Obama is inclined to stick with his
formula of going all in, like he did in get-
ting a health care reform law, the biggest
and most consuming fight of his presiden-


cy, The view from the White House is that
the president is almost certain to face a
political and ideological fight in this elec-
tion year no matter whom he nominates to
the court; the only issue is to what degree.
So why scale back?
What's more, Obama has shown an
aggressive streak when it comes to the
nation's highest court, one sure to shape
his thinking in picking a nominee.
Obama openly criticized the court for a
January ruling that allowed corporations to
spend freely to influence elections. And he
did that during his State of the Union
address with six justices sitting in front of
him, drawing a rare, dismissive reaction
from Justice Samuel Alito, one of the
court's conservative members.
Stevens had strongly dissented in that
corporate-friendly campaign finance case,
saying it did nothing less than threaten "to
undermine the integrity of elected institu-


tions around the nation." And Obama all
but referenced the court ruling when he
said from the Rose Garden on Friday that
he is poised to choose a nominee who
"like Justice Stevens, knows that in a
democracy, powerful interests must not be
allowed to drown out the voices of ordi-
nary citizens."
It is this criterion - Obama has called it
empathy, or seeing life and the law
through others' eyes - that defined his
choice of Sotomayor.
It seems sure to do so again this time,
Inviting a political fight.
.Sotomayor's confirmation itself was, for
the most part, a.hardened partisan battle.
The vote was 68-31, with Democrats
unanimously behind her and most
Republicans opposing her choice and
Obama's judicial standards. Yet not lost in
all that was that nine Republican's voted to
confirm Sotomayor.


Cable ties Kissinger weune.s&


to Chile controversy


BY PETE YOST
ASSOCIATED PRESS WRITER

WASHINGTON - As
secretary of state, Henry
Kissinger canceled a U.S.
warning against carrying
out international political
assassinations that was to
have gone to Chile and two
neighboring nations just
days before a former
ambassador was killed by
Chilean agents . on
Washington's Embassy
Row in 1976, a fiewly
released State Department
cable shows.
Whether Kissinger
played a role in blocking
the delivery of the'warning
against assassination to the
governments of Chile,
Argentina and Uruguay
has long been a topic* of
controversy.
Discovered in recent
weeks by the National
Security Archive, a non-
profit research organiza-
tion, the Sept. 16,. 1976
cable is among tens of
thousands of declassified
State Department docu-
ments recently made avail-
able to the public.
In 1976, the South
American nations of Chile,
Argentina and Uruguay
were engaged in a program
of repression code-named
Operation Condor that tar-
geted those governments'
political opponents


throughout Latin America,
'Europe and even the
United States.
Based on information
from the CIA, the U.S.
State Department became
concerned that Condor
included plans for political
assassination around the
world. - -The State
Department drafted a plan
to deliver a stern niessage
to the three governments
not to engage in such mur-
ders.
In the Sept. 16, 1976
cable, the topic of one para-
graph is listed as
"Operation Condor," pre-
ceded by the words
"(KISSINGER, HENRY
A.) SUBJECT: ACTIONS
TAKEN."
The cable states that "sec-
retary declined to approve
message to Montevideo",
Uruguay "and has instructed
that no further action be


taken on this matter."
"The Sept. 16 cable is the
missing piece of the histor-
ical puzzle on Kissinger's
role in the action, and inac-
tion, of the U.S. govern-
ment after learning of
Condor assassination
plots," Peter Kornbluh, the
National Security
Archive's senior analyst on
Chile, said Saturday.
Kornbluh is the author of
"The Pinochet File: A
Declassified Dossier on
Atrocity and
Accountability."
Jessica LePorin, a
spokeswoman for
Kissinger, says that the for-
mer secretary of state dealt
many- years ago with ques-
tions concerning the can-
cellation of the warnings to
the South American gov-
ernnients and had no fur-
ther comment on the mat-
ter.

Grandmother: Boy terrorized adoptive family


BY KRISTIN M. HALL
ASSOCIATED PRESS WRITERS
SHELBYVILLE, Tenn. -
Torry Hansen was so eager to
become a mother that she adopt-
ed an older child from a foreign
country, two factors that scare off
many prospective parents. Her
bigger fears came later.
Torry's mother, Nancy Hansen,
said the 7-year-old's violent
episodes - which culminated in
a threat to burn the family's home
to the ground - terrified them
into a shocking solution: The boy
they renamed Justin was put on a
plane by himself and sent back to
Russia.
Now, outraged officials in that
country are calling for a halt to
adoptions by Americans, and
authorities are investigating the
family. However, Nancy Hansen
told The Associated Press that
the motives of her daughter - a
33-year-old, unmarried nurse -
were sincere.
"The intent of my daughter
was to have a family and the
intent of my whole family was to
love that child," she said Friday.
The family was told the boy,
whose Russian name is Artyom
Savelyev, was healthy in
September when he was brought
from the town of Partizansk in
Russia's Far East to his new
home in the heart of Tennessee
horse country. The skinny boy
seemed happy, but the behavioral

problems began soon after,
Hansen said.
"The Russian orphanage offi-
cials completely lied to her
because they wanted to get rid of
him," she said.
Hansen chronicled a list of
problems: hitting, screaming and
spitting at his mother and threat-
ening to kill family members..
Hansen said his eruptions were
often sparked when he was
denied something he wanted, like
toys or video games.
"He drew a picture of our
house burning down and he'll tell
anybody that he's going to burn
our house down with us in it," she


said. "It got to be where you
feared for your safety. It was ter-
rible."
Hansen said she thought that
with their love, they could help
him. "I was wrong," she said.
Adoption experts say many
families are blinded by their
desire to adopt and don't always
understand what the orphans
have sometimes endured - espe-
cially older children who may
have been neglected or aban-
doned.
"They're not' prepared to
appreciate, psychologically, the
kinds of conditions these kids
have been exposed to and the


effect it has had on them," said
Joseph LaBarbera, a clinical psy-
chologist at Vanderbilt University
Medical Center in Nashville.
Hansen said her daughter
sought advice from psychologists
but never had her adoptive son
meet with one.
They chose an English-lan-
guage home study program, hop-
ing to enroll him in traditional
school in the fall. He would play
with his cousin, Logan, at the
family's property in Shelbyville,
where there is a large backyard
and a swingset.
In February, Hansen said, the
family could take no more. The
boy flew into a rage, snatched a
3-pound statue and tried to attack
his aunt with it.
Hansen said he was apparently
upset after his aunt asked him to
correct math problems on his
school work.
Hansen bought the plane ticket,
and the family arranged to pay a
man in Russia $200 to.take him
from the airport and drop him off
at the Russian education ministry.
He-arrived alone Thursday on a
United Airlines flight from
Washington.
With him was a note that read,
in part: "After giving my best to
this child, I am sorry to say that
for the safety of my family,
friends, and myself, I no longer
wish to parent this child."
The family, meanwhile, has
rejected the Kremlin's sharp crit-


icism and any notion that the boy
was simply abandoned.
Pavel Astakhov, Russia's chil-
dren's rights commissioner, said
during a radio interview Saturday
that three Russian families have
already come forward and asked
to adopt the boy.
Russian Foreign Minister
Sergey Lavrov has called the
boy's return "the last straw" after
a string of foreign adoption fail-
ures, and officials in Moscow
have called for a suspension of all.
U.S. adoptions in Russia -
which totaled about 1,600 last
year, according to the nonprofit
U.S. advocacy group the National
Council For Adoption.
The Russian education min-
istry immediately suspended the
license of the group involved in
the adoption - the World
Association for Children and
Parents, a Renton, Washington-
based agency - for the duration
of an investigation.
Experts and adoptive parents
have reacted with similar shock,
though they stress that the vast
majority of adopted children are
raised in happy, loving homes.
"That incidents like the one
today can cause children to
remain in orphanages rather than
be adopted by loving families is
the real tragedy," said Sue
Gainor, who adopted a child from
Russia in 2001 and is the nation-
al chairperson of Families for
Russian and Ukranian Adoption.


Day care stayed open after E. coli found


By PHUONG LE
ASSOCIATED PRESS WRITER
SEATTLE - County
health officials didn't close a
Washington state day care
.for several days after chil-
dren were hospitalized with
a deadly strain of E. coli -
because of concerns the
infection would spread far-
ther if parents took their
children elsewhere.
A 4-year-old boy died
ifter being infected at the
Vancouver, Wash., center,
and, three other children
were sickened.
The first case was report-
ed March 19. But Clark
County health officer Dr.
Alan Melnick said he didn't
Shut down Fletch Family
Daycare until April 2 out of
concern that other parents
who used the facility could
take their children to differ-
ent day cares and risk expos-
ing others.
Melnick's decision to
close the facility came after
tests showed seven more
children and staff with no
symptoms tested positive for
the E. coli strain.
"This is really tragic and
we're certainly concerned
about the kids who were
hospitalized, but we're also
concerned about keeping
this from spreading to other
parts of the community,"
Melnick said Saturday.
He said he felt confident
the infection has not spread
further and that.health offi-
cials are closely monitoring
the children and staff of the
closed center. Melnick said
three children who were
hospitalized are at home
recovering; he declined to
release their ages or other
details. Melnick also did not
release the date when the 4-
year-old child died. That
child's death was reported
Friday.
The strain involved, E.
coli 0157:H7, is best known
for its role in large outbreaks
traced to ground beef or pro-
duce. However, person-to-
person transmission can be a
problem in day-care settings


The front yard of Washington state day care center is shown Friday in Vancouver,
Wash. A recent outbreak of a potentially deadly strain of E. coli at a Washington
state day care center has killed one child and sickened three other children, health
officials said Friday. The child who died was a 4-year-old boy, said Elizabeth Winter
of the Washington state Department of Early Learning. The department was notified
of his death on Friday, she said. - AP Photo/Rick Bowmer


or nursing homes. In some
cases, especially in young
children, infection can lead
to life-threatening complica-
tions. A laboratory reported
the first case to health offi-
cials on March 19, after it
received a stool sample that
tested positive for E. coli
O157:H7.
On March 26, the same
doctor who treated the first
child reported a second case
to health officials. That day,
health officials inspected the
facility but didn't .find any-
thing alarming"' after
reviewing hygiene practices,
Melnick said. Health offi-
cials began contacting staff
and parents of all the chil-
dren to pinpoint the source.
About March 29, the
mother of a third child
called health officials report-
ing symptoms. Health offi-
cials did another inspection
that day and didn't find any


specific problems,. Melnick
said. He added that he felt
measures were in place to
control the spread of the ill-
ness.
The boy who died was the
fourth child to be hospital-
ized. On March 30, health
officials took stool samples
from 22 children and 4
adults. When it got results
back showing that E. coli
had spread there, it closed
the facility.
The center, operated by
Dianne and Larry Fletch,
has been open since 1990
and no complaints have
been filed against it. Lately,
it has been caring for about
22 children.
"This is a very difficult
time for the family who has
suffered such an incredible
loss," the Fletches said in a
statement Friday. "It is also

Worries about Calif. priest came early in career


BY GILLIAN FLACCUS AND
BROOKE DONALD
ASSOCIATED PRESS WRITER

OAKLAND, Calif. - Even in his semi-
nary days in the early 1970s, there were
questions about California priest Stephen
Kiesle: Colleagues said he had trouble
relating to adults, lacked spirituality and
didn't seem committed to anything but
youth ministry.
Those colleagues, who helped make the
case to the Vatican in 1981 seeking to let
him leave the priesthood, said they were
concerned before Kiesle was ordained, and
more so after revelations Kiesle had
molested children in his parish.
"He was not grown up. He spent more
time with kids than with people his own
age. You get suspicious of that. There's
something wrong there," said John
Cummins, former bishop in the Diocese of
Oakland, now retired.
Still, future Pope Benedict XVI resisted
pleas from the diocese to act on the case,
according to a 1985 letter in Latin obtained
by The Associated Press that bore his sig-
nature as then-Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger.
It would take another two years before
the Vatican doctrine watchdog office head-
ed by Ratzinger would approve Kiesle's
own request to leave the priesthood in
1987.
Vatican attorney Jeffrey Lena said the
matter proceeded "expeditiously, not by
modem standards, but by those standards
at the time."
Kiesle pleaded no contest in 1978 to
lewd conduct for tying up and molesting
two boys and was sentenced to three years
probation. He took a leave of absence from
his parish position, and in 1981 returned
and asked the Oakland bishop'to be lai-
cized, or removed from the priesthood.
In building a case to laicize Kiesle, the
Rev. George Mockel of the Oakland
Diocese asked priests who had worked
with Kiesle to share their opinions of his

spondence from Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger regarding troubled priest Stephen Kiesle
as he looks over copies of a document brought by the Associated Press to his home
in Oakland, Calif. on Frida. A letter obtained by the AP and bearing the signature

time in seminary and work in the priest-
hood after being ordained in 1972.
One colleague was the Rev. Louis
Dabovich, of the Church of the Good
Shepherd, where Kiesle served as a deacon
in the early 1970s.


"Stephen Kiesle was a very intelligent,
personable and industrious young man,
and yet he lacked maturity and responsibil-
ity and spirituality," Dabovich wrote. He
said teenagers and children liked him; "Yet
he acted as one of them: played ball with


them; took them to outings and shows and
spent time in their homes."
Dabovich said he was somewhat con-
cerned about Kiesle's relationship with the
youths, but never heard complaints. Only
years after Kiesle left the parish did
Dabovich say he learned of "some impro-
prieties."
Dabovich also said he had spoken with
then-Oakland bishop Floyd Begin about
concerns he had regarding Kiesle, includ-
ing the books he was reading and his gen-
eral.lack of maturity and spirituality.
"To me these were signs of some internal
turmoil and the need to satisfy his nature,
the need.to share his life with someone,"
Dabovich wrote. "However he was
ordained and most probably my observa-.
tions were not taken seriously."
Dabovich said it could be detrimental if
he were to remain in active ministry.
Mockel replied that there "has been a
general 'tightening up' in Rome regarding
these petitions. I am sure, however, that
your cogent observations will be most
helpful."
Another colleague, the Rev. George
Crespin, the diocese chancellor, worked
with Kiesle at Our Lady of the Rbsary
parish in Union City. He described Kiesle
as talented, creative and bright, but also
disorganized, unmotivated and highly
undisciplined. Crespin wondered why
Kiesle joined the priesthood.
"It was almost impossible to get him to
take an interest in the sick, in counseling
individuals or families, in offering himself
for activities in the parish that were unre-
lated to youth," he wrote.
California church .officials wrote to
Ratzinger at least three times to check on
the status of Kiesle's case and Cummins
discussed the case with officials during a
Vatican visit, according to correspondence
obtained by AP.
At one point, a Vatican official wrote to
say the file may have been lost and sug-
gested resubmitting materials.


Cherokee's Mankiller remembered as humble leader OBITUARIES


BY JUSTIN JUOZAPAVICIUS
AssOCIATED PRESS WRITER

TAHLEQUAH, Okla. -
One of the most influential
American Indian leaders in
recent history, most knew
former Cherokee Nation
Chief Wilma Mankiller for
strengthening her tribe and
drawing the accolades of
U.S. presidents.
But it was her humble,
tender nature - a refusal
to squash a bug, an affinity
for opera - that defined
her life, friends said
Saturday.
Mankiller, among the
few women to ever lead a
major tribe, was remem-
bered during a memorial
that drew more than 1,200
mourners, including digni-
taries from other tribes and
governments, as a respect-
ed leader who earned the
nation's highest civilian
honor.
But also as a mother who

Even a Boston Red Sox

stats of any member on the
team's roster.
"She always saw you a
little better than you were,
so you became better,"
close friend and women's
rights activist Gloria
Steinem, who was with
Mankiller in the final
weeks of her life, said dur-
ing the outdoor service at
the Cherokee Nation
Cultural Grounds, about 70
miles east of Tulsa.
Mankiller died Tuesday
after a bout with pancreatic
cancer at age 64.
Mankiller led the
Cherokee Nation, which
now has about 290,000
members, from December
1985 until 1995. Under her
guidance, the tribe tripled
its enrollment, doubled
employment and built new
health centers and chil-


dren's programs.
She received the
Presidential . Medal of
Freedom - the highest
civilian honor in the coun-
try - from then-President
Bill Clinton in 1998.
Yet she was always with-
out pretension, whether she
were with dignitaries in
Washington or sitting on a
porch at home in
Oklahoma, friends said.
SAbout 170 dignitaries
were among those who
attended her memorial,
where dozens of people
lined their cars along the
already-clogged entrance
hours ahead of the 11 a.m.
service. Some brought their
own lawn chairs and blan-
kets.
They were told that
Mankiller,. even with her
cancer diagnosis, never
stopped living to the
fullest, planning the next
day's events and making
peace with her final days.

think people are aware," White
said. "I've been studying this area
for years and have discovered about
500 sites, but I would bet that there
are about 100,000 archaeological
riches just in the river basin alone."
White explained that along the
Chipola River, archaeologists have
found an abundance of different
spear points that earlier inhabitants
of this area used to hunt large
game. The spear points were made
of a flint-like material called chert,
taken from many stone outcrop-
pings scattered throughout north
Florida.
White explained the area is rich


in stone, which brought many early
hunter gatherers to this area. White
is also known for her expertise in
the study of this region's first
inhabitants, the Native Americans.
White says archaeologists
believe people first arrived in what
is now Florida more than 12,000
years ago, when the earth was in
the final stages of the last ice age.
Florida at the time extended about
100 miles farther into what is now
the Gulf of Mexico.
White says the "first people,"
known as Paleo-Indians, left clues
to their existence all around this
region with their stone projectile


points, hammers and other tools.
These nomadic hunters roamed the
area, living off big and small game.
"Yes, we have reason to believe
that there were mastodons that
roamed here in Jackson County,"
White said.
As the earth began to warm,
Florida's climate changed and
changed the plant and animal life
with it, White explained.
About 1,000 years ago, cultural
diversity emerged in the Florida
Panhandle as native people began
to grow corn, beans and squash,
which began to support societies.
"But this lifestyle changed forev-
T


er when our short Spanish explor-
ers 'discovered' Florida," White
said. "I call them short because
compared to the Native Americans,
they were. The difference in diets
gave the natives a much taller and
slender build, compared to the
Spanish."
To accompany her presentation,
White brought along some of the
artifacts she had discovered in the
area and answered questions guests
had about them.
Many requested that her articles
about the area be made available
for residents to read and learn about
their region's history.

Grieving begins, but life goes on at mines


BY GREG BLUESTEIN AND VICKI
SMITH
ASSOCIA TED PRESS WRITERS

COMFORT, W.Va. - Time
stopped five days ago for the fam-
ilies of 29 coal miners killed in the
devastating explosion at Upper
Big Branch mine.
As thousands waited, hoping for
any word someone might have
survived Monday's blast, life in
coal country chugged on, men
trudging underground day and
night to fill the trucks and trains
that haul away coal around the
clock. Mining is a way of life here.
So is death. Just miles from where
families gathered to wait for news,
a peddler of mining gear did brisk
business and tired miners covered
in coal dust picked up pizzas at the
end of their shifts. In the quiet,
'humble neighborhoods that hug
the Big Coal River, the work never
stopped.
"When the World Trade Center
was bombed, the world didn't shut
down," said James Lipford,. 38, a
miner from Seth who was driving
to the V-Mart convenience store
early Saturday when he heard the
last four bodies had been found
deep inside Massey Energy Co.'s
mine in Montcoal.
He knew three of those killed
and worried all week, but never
thought about quitting. After all,

he says, coal company sharehold-
ers still expect profits.
Homeowners expect to be able to
turn on their lights with electricity
generated by coal. His family
expects him to bring home a pay-
check so they can buy groceries.
"We go with a heavy heart," he
said, "but you have to go."
It Was the worst U.S. coal min-
ing disaster since 1970, when an


explosion killed 38 in Hyden,.Ky.
Seven bodies were pulled from
Upper Big Branch immediately
after Monday's blast, but danger-
ous gases forced rescue crews out
and it took days for them to get
back in. They hoped four miners
they had not accounted for might
somehow have made it to a refuge
chamber stocked with food, water
and oxygen, but word came early


Saturday that all had been found
dead. Crews realized late Friday
they had walked past the four bod-
ies that first day, but could not see
them because the air was so smoky
and dusty. The massive blast left
the inside of the mine a mess of
twisted tracks, boulders and
debris. Two other miners were
injured and one remains hospital-
ized.
Twenty-eight of those killed
worked for Virginia-based Massey
and one was a contract worker for
the company, which has been
under scrutiny since the explosion
for a string of safety violations at
the mine. CEO Don Blankenship,
who was with the families when
they learned the miners were dead,
has strongly defended the compa-
ny's record and disputed accusa-
tions from miners that he puts coal
profits ahead of safety.
SOfficials have not said what
caused the blast, though they
believe high levels of methane gas
may have played a role. Massey
has been repeatedly cited and fined
for problems with the system that
vents 'methane and for allowing
combustible dust to build up.
President Barack Obama said
Saturday that steps must be taken
to make sure such an explosion
does not happen again.
"We cannot bring back the men
we lost," he said in a statement.


"What we can do, in their memo-
ry, is thoroughly investigate this
tragedy and demand accountabili-
ty."
A team of federal investigators
will arrive Monday, but for now
the focus is on burying the dead
and removing the remaining bod-
ies, a grim process that started
Saturday. A complete list of vic-
tims has not been released, but

Hero who helped

subdue shoe bomber

becomes citizen


BY KATE BRUMBACK
ASSOCIATED PRESS WRITER

ATLANTA - Kwame
James waited nearly 10
years to be sworn in as a
U.S. citizen, a long time
compared with the time he
spent helping, subdue
would-be shoe bomber
Richard Reid on a trans-
Atlantic flight.
James, now 32, wore a
gray pinstriped suit and
blue tie this week during
the ceremony, which ended
years of immigration limbo
that began after he helped
thwart the terror attack
aboard a Paris-to-Miami
flight in December 2001.
The 6-foot-8 basketball
player was napping when a
flight attendant roused him.
Ten rows back, Reid was
scuffling with passengers
and the crew after he tried
to ignite explosives hidden
in his shoes. James helped
tie up Reid with belts and
headset wires, and took
turns holding Reid by his
ponytail with another pas-
senger until the plane could
land in Boston.
Nearly 10 years later,
James would rather talk
about how happy he is to be
a rew citizen and his pas-
sion for music.
"I became a citizen of
one of the best countries in
the world and I am very
happy," he said Friday, a
day after he was sworn in


as a citizen in Atlanta. "All
the things that people come
here for, that's what I'm
here for, the opportunity.
You can come from nothing
and become something
here, just through hard
work."
James, who was born in
Canada and raised in
Trinidad, played profes-
sional basketball in France.
He had been traveling to
the U.S. to meet his then-
girlfriend and take her to
his family's home in
STrinidad for the holidays.
He returned to France after
the trip but asked his bas-
ketball coach for some time
off when the reality of the
flight's close call set in.
"I didn't understand the
magnitude of what hap-
pened at first," he said.
He entered the U.S. as a
tourist but later realized he
couldn't overstay his visa if
he wanted to become a citi-
zen later. He agreed to tes-
tify against Reid, but the
government seemed to turn
its back on him after Reid
pleaded guilty before trial
in October 2002, said his
immigration lawyer,
Michael Wildes.
Wildes was shocked that
someone who had acted
heroically might lose per-
mission to stay in the U.S.,
and he volunteered during a
nationally televised news
show to take the case for
free.

Lady Indians beat

TCC twice to win

Panhandle crown
BY DUSTIN KENT
FLORIDAN SPORTS EDITOR
The .Chipola Lady Indians
swept Tallahassee on Saturday in
Marianna to clinch the Panhandle
Conference championship.
Chipola defeated the Lady
Eagles 3-0 in the first game, then
won 4-3 in dramatic fashion in
the second game to take the dou-
bleheader.
The Lady Indians are now 12-2
in Panhandle Conference play,
with only two games remaining.
Northwest Florida State (7-5)
is now mathematically eliminat-
ed, but still in good position to
take the league's second postsea-
son berth.
Chipola took the . first game
thanks to a dominating pitching
performance by Brittany Black,
who held the Lady Eagles to just
one hit, while walking none and
striking out five.
Paige Martin started for
Tallahassee and took the loss,
going four innings and allowing
just one run on three hits, three
walk%, and two strikeouts.
Kellie Todd put Chipola on the
board in the fourth inning when
she doubled, and scored on a
passed ball.

Indians make big splash with Kentucky recruit


BY DUSTIN KENT
F ...-I i : Sr.-,rT: E,_ ,) 'R


Chipola coach Jake Headrick
took the first step towards return-
ing the Indians basketball team to
prominence Friday when he
signed highly touted recruit
Elijah Pittman.
The 6-foot, 8-inch forward is
the top-rated recruit in the state
of Kentucky, and was originally
recruited by Division I schools
such as West Virginia, Oklahoma
State, Cincinnati and Oklahoma.
Pittman chose Chipola over
JUCO powerhouses such -as
Midland, Odessa, Vincennes,
Howard, and College of Southern
Idaho.
Headrick said signing Pittman
was a top priority for the Indians'
staff.
"He's just a guy that we spent a
lot of time on, a guy we thought
was very important to the future
of our program," the coach said.
"He was recruited by a number of
programs across the country.


"I think he'll bring a lot
of things to the team
that we didn't have last
year.
-Jake Headrick,
Chipola coach
"The two main reasons we
recruited him were because of his
talent and the history he has had
winning. Any time you can bring
a kid in who has those two things,
it's a great thing."
Pittman won a state champi-
onship with Covington Holmes
High School during his junior
season. Covington lost in the
state final last season.
The young forward said that
upon his visit to the school,
Chipola was the logical next step
for him'as a player and a student.
Pittman said he was eager to

The Cottondale Hornets
took a 12-2 win in six innings
over the Altha Wildcats on
Thursday night, in the second
of two games.
Cottondale fell to Lanier
County in the first game, but
the Hornets bounced back with
a dominant performance in
Game 2.
The win came largely due to
a seven-run second inning by
Cottondale, which later added
two runs in the fifth, and three
more in the sixth to end the
game.
Caleb Toole led the Hornets
offensively, going 4-for-4 with
two RBI, while Ryan

Chipola tops TCC to




snap two-game skid


BY DUSTIN KENT
FLORIDAN SPORTS EDIrOR

The Chipola Indians snapped
a two-game losing streak
Saturday at Chipola Field, tak-
ing a 9-1 victory over the
Tallahassee Eagles in 7 innings.
Chipola got a strong start
from sophomore pitcher CJ
Riefenhauser and a monster day
offensively from Joey Rapp to
take the win.
The Indians improved to 9-8
in Panhandle Conference play
with the \win.
Chipola is in sole possession
of second place in the league, a
game ahead of third-place
Pensacola (6-9) in the loss col-
umn.
Riefenhauser threw six
innings for the Indians, allowing
no runs on seven hits, a walk,
and six strikeouts. Rapp provid-
ed much of the offensive sup-
port, finishing 4-for-4 with three
runs and four RBI.
The sophomore outfielder hit
a two-run home run in the first
inning to put the Indians in front


"The main thing we
have to do is worry
about ourselves. If we
play like we can, we'll
be fine."
-Jeff Johnson,
Chipola coach

3-0.
Rapp added a solo shot in the
bottom of the sixth inning to
provide the Indians with the
eight-run lead needed to end the
game in seven innings.
"Rapp swung the bat very
well, like he's capable of and
supposed to do," Chipola coach
Jeff Johnson said after the game.
"I thought CJ threw really well
for us. I was really pleased with
what he gave us."
Chipola added two runs in the
fifth inning to go up 5-0.
The first came on an RBI-sin-
gle by Rapp to score Eric Sauls,
then LeVon Washington reached


on a fielder's choice and scored
on a TCC error.
In the fifth, Lance Bailey had
an RBI single to put Chipola up
6-0, and Blake Newalu followed
with a two-run hit to score
Aaron Etchison and Josh Allen
to extend the lead to eight runs.
The Indians complete the
series with Tallahassee on
Monday before beginning a
three-game set with first-place
Gulf Coast on Wednesday at
home.
The Commodores are 13-1 in
conference and swept the
Indians earlier this season, so
Monday's game takes on even
greater importance in the race
for the league's second playoff
spot.
"Obviously, it's very impor-
tant, but the main thing we need
to do is worry about ourselves,"
Johnson said. "If we play like
we can, we'll be fine. If we
don't, then we'll have some-
thing to worry about. I hope we
just keep getting more and more
.solid, and we can keep adding
bullets to the gun."

The Sneads Pirates rebounded from a lop-
sided loss to the Holmes County Blue Devils
with a 9-3 victory over Graceville.on Thursday
night in Sneads.
The Pirates fell to the Blue Devils 9-2 on
Tuesday night in Bonifay, but they were able to
return home and get the losing taste out of their
mouth against their county rivals.
Marcus Beauchamp started on the mound for
the Pirates and went six innings to pick up the
win, surrendering just three unearned runs on
two hits, two walks, and four strikeouts.
Sneads scored a run in the first inning when
Beauchamp walked and crossed home plate on
a triple by Trevin Hall.
Graceville scored all three of its runs in the
top of the fourth inning off of three Sneads
errors to take a 3-1 lead. But the Pirates
responded in, the bottom of the frame with four
runs to go ahead for good.
John Locke was hit by a pitch, and John
Beauchamp drew a walk, with Taylor Wood's
two-RBI single scoring both to tie the game at
3-3.


Bubba Carpenter put Sneads up for good
with a two-run double to score Wood and Sid
Hand for a 5-3 lead.
Sneads added four more runs in the fifth
inning to blow the game wide open.
Locke again reached base, this time on a
walk, and scored on an RBI single by John
Beauchamp, who scored on a Graceville error.
Ron Brown and Hand each reached on Tiger
errors, and.they scored on hits by Carpenter
and Marcus Beauchamp to make it a 9-3
Pirates advantage.
Chris Willis started on the mound for
Graceville and went four innings before giving
way to Nick Paprzycki, who finished up.
Carenter led the Pirates offensively, going 2-
for-4 with three RBI.
Hall was 2-for-4 with a triple and an RBI,
while John Beauchamp was 2-for-4 with a pair
of runs.
The Pirates improved to 5-12'on the season
with the win, including 4-7 in district play.
Sneads came back home on Friday night to
add another league win, beating Blountstown
15-8.
The Pirates next play host to Bainbridge on
Tuesday in Sneads at 5 p.m.


Orshall 1-hits Aucilla in 2-0 victory


BY DUSTIN KENT
FLORIDAN SPORTS EDITOR

Derek Orshall pitched a one-hit shutout
to lead the Malone Tigers to a 2-0 road win
over district foe Aucilla Christian on
Friday night.
Orshall struck out seven batters and
walked six, working himself out of a
bases-loaded jam in the seventh inning to
get the win.
"We had a Derek Orshall sighting,"
Malone coach Max Harkrider joked after
the game. "He looked like the Derek of
old."
The Tigers' junior started slow this sea-
son after battling soreness in his pitching
elbow, but Orshall had the look Friday
night of the pitcher who led Malone to a
district title and the.regional finals last
year as a sophomore.
"I think he got off to a good start, he was
locating his pitches, getting curve ball
across, and he just competed," Harkrider
said of Orshall. "He walked a few. He
walked too many actually, but he didn't let
it bother him. It was good to see."
The win improved the Tigers to 9-8 in
the season and 4-4 in district competition.
Malone struggled mightily in a 10-0
road loss to John Paul on Thursday, but
Harkrider said he was excited to see his
team respond in a positive way the follow-
ing night.
"I think the whole team got out there and


"We pitched well, we played
good defense, and we
capitalized when we had
runners on base, which was

competed," the coach said. "Derek walked
six, but we made several good plays in the
field. We pitched well, played good
defense, and we capitalized when we had
runners on base, which was good to see."
Malone scored its two runs in the fourth
inning. Jeffrey Pittman led the inning off
with a double, then scored on an RBI dou-
ble by Orshall, who was pinch-run for by
Travlaen Schumaker.
Three batters later, Hunter Dillard sin-
gled up the middle to bring Schumaker to
the plate to make it 2-0.
The Warriors threatened to break
through multiple times, but they were
never able to get the big hit. Aucilla had
runners on the corners with two outs in the
fourth, but a ground out ended the threat.
In the seventh, the Warriors loaded the
bases with one out.
But Orshall struck out the final two bat-
ters to end the game.

Swamp sojourn


The river swamp beckons some-
how. You're drawn to it.
Forget peril and inconvenience: the
hidden diamondbacks and the fragile
limestone ledges at the edges of sink-
holes, the alligator-infested river, the
mud that sucks the shoes from your
feet, the thorn
thickets, the path-
less byways lead-
ing nowhere
except deeper into ,
fetid, humid dark-
ness. You simply
must go there.
You see the -
swamp from the
shoulder of the
old dirt road Bob Kornegay
where you pulled
over and parked. You see the cypress-
es, the palmettos, the old dead tree
where vultures roost.
You smell the moist, dank earth
that lies hidden beneath composting
layers of decaying vegetative carpet.
You hear things: raucous cackling
from the heron rookery, footfalls
made by hoof and paw, the gurgle of
the far-off stream where it rounds the
bend and flows through the old log-
jam. It is two or three hours before
dusk. You must go in. The swamp
beckons.
You must enter the swamp for two
simple important reasons. One, the
love of the outdoors is in your blood,
has been there, in fact, for as long as
you can remember.
Two, you know John Muir and
Henry David Thoreau were right.
There exists, without question, a
"necessity of wildness," an innate
need to experience nature on her own
terms, and in everyone, whether he
knows it or not, a deep-seated desire


to "live deliberately, to front only the
essential facts of life," if only for a
brief soul-cleansing moment. For
now, potential hazards and unfamil-'
iarity do not matter.
You must step into this wild, pri-
mordial world and be the only mem-
ber of your species present there.
You slam the door of your vehicle,
too loudly, with something akin to,
you fear, irreverence.
It is not a good beginning. You
desire to covertly blend in. Instead,
you've announced your intrusion.
But you're not the only intruder.
Chinese privet grows in profusion by
the roadside.
Volunteer daylilies bloom orange
in the sunlight. And isn't that a
Eurasian tree sparrow in that honey-
suckle clump? None of these should
be here, either, and at least you won't
be staying.
The river flows sluggishly through
the swamp in the distance. It is in that
direction you step off; gingerly, care-
fully. The ground is soggy even on
the "high" side.
Feral hogs have left their sign
behind. Tracks and rooting holes
betray their feeding grounds and
destructive dining habits.
They, too, are invaders and, like the
privet and the sparrow, are likely to
remain, thwarting all removal efforts.
Yet, as you plod onward, trying
hard to traverse only the driest
ground, you notice that native
wildlife abounds here also.
Some; the white-tailed deer, the
gray squirrels, the great egret, the
river otter; you see in the flesh.
Others; the fox, the raccoon, the
beaver; have left "calling cards," var-
iegated signs of their presence.
Deep in, out of view of the road,


there is a huge sinkhole. Its limestone
rim is brittle and precarious, but, oh
yes, you must venture close and look
in.
Good place for shade-seeking rat-
tlesnakes, you think. You think cor-
rectly. There are two. You watch them
awhile, but they don't move. You
ease'slowly away.
You're close to the wading-bird
rookery now. They are indeed herons,
little blues, to be exact. The nests are
untidy and the chicks, by human stan-
dards, ugly. You're not a mother
. heron, though. Shouldn't harbor such
prejudicial opinions.
There's a hornets' nest in a big
sparkleberry. Ugh! You'll take rat-
tlesnakes any day.
The logjam in the river is a rest
stop for terrapins, at least four differ-
ent species. You wish you were better
at telling them apart. A huge alligator
cruises a little ways downstream and
the sight cheers you. Gators have fas-
cinated you since 1970.
On the riverbank, it comes clear
that dusk is gathering. You're a poor
pathfinder anytime, but after dark
you'll have absolutely no clue.
Prudently, you turn and retrace your
steps.
It is only after you've reached the
truck that you notice the mosquito
and yellowfly bites on your exposed
flesh. You notice, too, that you're
tired, your boots are muddy, and your
scent in no way resembles a bouquet
of violets.
At that, you smile. As the swamp
fades to blackness in the twilight, you
think again of Muir and Thoreau.
They'd look kindly on you now, you
surmise.
They'd know you understand.

Floridan's weekly


fishing report for


local lakes, rivers


LAKE SEMINOLE -
Bass fishing is good.
Largemouths are bedding
actively and sight-fishing
has been very productive.
Shallow, sandy areas up
the creeks, in sloughs and
backwaters, and shallow
areas of the maii lake
have all been producing
fish.
For bedding fish,
lizards and finesse worms
are recommended baits.
Post-spawn fish are also
holding in areas near
spawning grounds that
contain vegetation (pri-
marily lily-pad patches).
Frog-type baits on
strong, braided line will
greatly enhance your
chances in the tough pad
stems.
Crappies are very good.
They may be found shal-
low as well as in post-
spawn pattern on the
ledges in the creeks and
the main lake.
Live minnows' and jigs
are both productive.
Bream fishing is pick-
ing up.
Shellcrackers have
shown signs of life recent-
ly and. bluegills are
becoming more active.
Catfish are biting with
some consistency, partic-
ularly in the afternoon and
hybrid action is on the
upswing as well.
LAKE EUFAULA -
Bass fishing is very good.
Shallow bass are in an
active feeding mood right
now.
Spinnerbaits in shallow
grass are producing some
good numbers and some
pretty good individual
sizes.
Buzzbaits have also
worked in these locations
for some anglers. Some

spawning is reported, but
most fish remain in a pre-
spawn pattern.
Swimming a weedless-
rigged lizard through
thick brush is a recom-
mended technique.
SCrappies are steadily
increasing their activity.
Many fish remain on
the ledges, but there are a
good number of schools
now being located in shal-
lower water.
Live minnows are pro-
ducing the most fish at
present.
Hybrids have been
active on the Lake's south
end of late and the bream
are picking up, though
individual fish sizes are
relatively small.
Catfish are biting late in
the afternoon on the flats.
L A' K E
ANDREWS/CHATTA-
HOOCHEE RIVER - The
river is showing some
staining at present, but
catfishing remains quite
good, particularly in the
Andrews Dam tailwaters.
Channels, blues, and
flatheads are all active
and readily taking both
live baitfish and cut bait.
If the warming trend
continues, look for bream
fishing on both sides of
the dam to turn on soon.
Even now, there are
some reports of a few nice
shellcrackers being taken
up some of the creeks
with bluegills said to be
on the upswing as well.
Hybrids, stripers, and
white bass have slowed
some, but are still biting
with relative consistency.
Bass fishing on the lake
side of the dam remains
slow with the stained
water.

Even after death, abuse against gays continues


BY RUKMINI CALLIMACHI
ASsoCIATED PRESS WRITER

THIES, Senegal - Even death
cannot stop the violence against
gays in this comer of the world any
more. Madieye Diallo's body had
only been in the ground for a few
hours when the mob descended on
the weedy cemetery with shovels.
They yanked out the corpse, spit
on its torso, dragged it away and
dumped it in front of the home of
his elderly parents.
The scene of May 2, 2009 was
filmed on a cell phone and the
video sold at the market. It passed
from phone to phone, sowing
panic among gay men who say
they now feel like hunted animals.
"I locked myself inside my
room and didn't come out for
days," says a 31-year-old gay
friend of Diallo's who is ill with
HIV. "I'm afraid of what will hap-
pen to me after I die. Will my par-
ents be able to bury me?"
A wave of intense homophobia
is washing across Africa, where
homosexuality is already illegal in

at least 37 countries.
In the last year alone, gay men
have been arrested in Kenya,
Malawi, Sierra Leone and Nigeria.
In Uganda, lawmakers are consid-
ering a bill that would sentence
homosexuals to life in prison and
include capital punishment for


'repeat offenders.' And in South
Africa, the only country that rec-
ognizes gay rights, gangs have car-
ried out so-called "corrective"
rapes on lesbians.
"Across many parts of Africa,
we've seen a rise in homophobic
violence," says London-based


gay-rights activist Peter Tatchell,
whose organization tracks abuse
against gays and lesbians in
Africa. "It's been steadily building
for the last 10 years but has got
markedly worse in the last year."
To the long list of abuse meted
out to suspected homosexuals in
Africa, Senegal has added a new
form of degradation - the dese-
cration of their bodies.
In the past two years, at least
four men suspected of being gay
have been exhumed by angry
mobs in cemeteries in Senegal.
The violence is especially shock-
ing because Senegal, unlike other
countries in the region, is consid-
ered a model of tolerance.
"It's jarring to see this happen in
Senegal," says Ryan Thoreson, a
fellow at the International Gay and
Lesbian Human Rights
Commission who has been
researching the rise of homopho-
bia here. "When something like
this happens in an established
democracy, it's alarming."
SEven though homosexuality is
illegal in Senegal, colonial docu-


ments indicate the country has
long had a clandestine gay com-
munity. In many towns, they were
tacitly accepted, says Cheikh
Ibrahima Niang, a professor of
social anthropology at Senegal's
largest university. In fact, the visi-
bility of gays in Senegal may have
helped to prompt the backlash
against them. The backlash dates
back to at least February 2008,
when a Senegalese tabloid pub-
lished photographs of a clandes-
tine gay wedding in a suburb of
Dakar, the capital. The wedding
was held inside a rented banquet
hall and was attended by dozens of
gay men, some of whom snapped
pictures that included the gay cou-
ple exchanging rings and sharing
slices of cake.
The day after the tabloid pub-
lished the photographs, police
began rounding up men suspected
of being homosexual. Some were
beaten in captivity and forced to
turn over the dames of other gay
men, according to research by the
International Gay and Lesbian
Human Rights Commission.


Thai army pulls back from


protest clashes; 15 dead


BY GRANT PECK
ASSOCIATED PRESS WRITER

BANGKOK - A crackdown on anti-
government protesters in Thailand's capi-
tal Saturday left at least 15 people dead
and more than 650 injured, with no
progress toward ending a monthlong
standoff with demonstrators demanding
new elections.
It was the worst violence in Bangkok
since more than four dozen people were
killed in an antimilitary protest in 1992.
Bullet casings, rocks and pools of blood
littered the streets where pitched battles
raged for hours.
Army troops later retreated and asked
protesters to do the same, resulting in an
unofficial truce.
Four soldiers and 11 civilians, including
a Japanese cameraman, were killed,
according to the government's Erawan
emergency center.
The savage fighting erupted after securi-
ty forces tried to push out demonstrators
who have been staging a month of disrup-
tive protests demanding that Prime
Minister Abhisit Vejjajva dissolve
Parliament and call new elections.
The demonstrations are part of a long-
running battle between the mostly poor
and rural supporters of former Prime
Minister Thaksin Shinawatra, and the rul-
ing elite they say orchestrated the 2006
military coup that removed him from
power on corruption allegations.
The protesters, called "Red' Shirts" for
their garb, see the Oxford-educated
Abhisit as a symbol of an elite impervious
to the plight of Thailand's poor and claim
he took office illegitimately in December
2008 after the military pressured
Parliament to vote for him.


Saturday's violence and failure to dis-
lodge the protesters are likely to make it
harder to end the political deadlock.
Previously, both sides had exercised con-
siderable restraint.
Abhisit "failed miserably," said Michael
Nelson, a German scholar of Southeast
Asian studies working in Bangkok.
Tanet Charoengmuang, a political scien-
tist at Chiang Mai University sympathetic
to the Red Shirt's cause, said he expects
the fighting will resume because the pro-
testers are unafraid and the government
refused to listen to them.
Abhisit went on national television
shortly before midnight to pay condo-
lences to the families of victims and indi-
rectly assert that he would not bow to the
protesters' demands.
"The government and I are still respon-
sible for easing the situation and trying to
bring peace and order to the country,"
Abhisit said.
SNelson said he had been hopeful the sit-
uation would calm down after the troops
pulled back but that Abhisit's TV appear-
ance raised doubts because he seemed
"totally defiant."
The army had vowed to clear the pro-
testers out of one of their two bases in
Bangkok by nightfall, but the push instead
set off street fighting. There was a contin-
uous sound of gunfire and explosions,
mostly from Molotov cocktails. After
More than two hours of fierce clashes, the
soldiers pulled back.
Army spokesman Col. Sansern
Kaewkamnerd went on television to ask
the protesters to retreat as well. He also
accused them of firing live rounds and
throwing grenades.,An APTN cameraman
saw two Red Shirt security guards carrying
assault rifles.

Iran: Iraq's government

must include Sunnis


BY ELIZABETH A.
KENNEDY
ASSOCIATED PRESS WRITER

BAGHDAD - The
Iranian ambassador. to
Baghdad said Saturday that
Iraq's new government
should include all political
blocs - including-Sunnis
- in a shift for a country
that has long advocated an
Iraqi government dominat-
ed by fellow Shiites.
Hassan Kazemi Qomi's
comments were a sign that
Iran, which has promoted
Shiite power since the fall
of Saddam Hussein, recog-
nizes that the March 7 par-
liamentary vote was simply
too close to completely
sideline any one political
bloc.
"All the blocs must par-
ticipate," Qomi said at a
news conference in
Baghdad. "It must be com-
prehensive."
Former Prime Minister
Ayad Allawi's Iraqiya bloc,'
which drew on heavy Sunni
support, came out two seats
ahead in the national vote.
But neither Allawi's list nor
the Shiite-led bloc of
incumbent Prime Minister
Nouri al-Mpliki, which
came in second, got enough
support to govern alone.
Now the sides are scram-
bling to cobble together
enough backing to form a
government.
Iran has played a power-
ful role in Iraqi politics. Iran
and Iraq both have majority
Shiite populations, and are
bound by strong religious
ties. But the two nations
fought a ruinous, eight-year
war in the 1980s in which a
million people were killed
or wounded. Memories of
that conflict continue to
feed mutual suspicion
between Iraqis and Iranians.
On Saturday, Qomi said
he expected a delegation


from the Iraqiya bloc to
visit his country, adding that
"Tehran's doors are open
for all political parties."
U.S. Ambassador
Christopher Hill urged the
Iranian ambassador not to
interfere in Iraqi politics.
Told of Qomi's com-
ments endorsing Iraqiya as
the Sunni voice in the new
government, Hill abruptly
dismissed the input, saying.
"My suggestion to him
would be to leave that up to
the Iraqis."
Earlier, Hill predicted it
would still be months
before a new government
was up and running, refer-
ring to the process as the
"dreaded period of'govern-
ment formation."
"Those who predicted
this would be months, not
weeks, can probably collect
on that bet," Hill said.
As the political deadlock
in Iraq drags on, the country
has seen a wave of attacks
over the last week that
killed 120 people in and
around Baghdad.
Many blame the violence
on extremists trying to
exploit the country's politi-
cal uncertainty.
The most brutal attacks
included a triple suicide
bombing outside foreign
embassies in the capital,' the
execution-style slaying of
Sunni villagers and a slew
of explosions that ripped
through residential areas in
the capital.
On Saturday, roadside
bombings and other attacks
killed six people across
Iraq, including a child and
the wife of a former police
lieutenant colonel, officials
said.
Violence has plummeted
across Iraq since its height
in 2006 and 2007 but
attacks continue, especially
in and around northern
cities like Mosul.

U.S. seeks to


smooth relations


with Afghan leader


BY DEB RIECHMANN
ASSOCIATED PRESS WRITER

KABUL - President
Hamid Karzai got a VIP
briefing at NATO head-
quarters and the top
American diplomat in
Kabul went out of his way
to smooth U.S.-Afghan
relations - signs that
Washington is using a soft-
er touch in dealing with the
unpredictable Afghan
leader. The turnabout 'is a
bid to ease the rancor otfthe
past week that flared after
Karzai, seeking to rally
national support, accused
the West of meddling in his
nation.
Karzai's strident com-
ments, just days after
President Barack Obama
visited Kabul, alleged the
'U.N. and the international
community interfered in
last year's fraud-tarnished
presidential 'election in
Afghanistan.
Karzai's backlash came
at a time when 30,000 U.S.
reinforcements are stream-
ing into the country to
ramp up the war against
Taliban insurgents.
The Obama administra-
tion needs Karzai's support
during an upcoming mili-
tary offensive to clear the
Taliban from Kandahar, the
biggest, city in southern
Afghanistan and the
Islamist movement's birth-
place.

SMOLENSK, Russia - An
aging Russian airliner carrying
Polish President Lech Kaczynski
and members of his country's
military, political and church
elites crashed in thick fog
Saturday as it took them to a cer-
emony marking the 70th anniver-
sary of the slaughter of thousands
of Polish military officers by
Soviet secret police.
Poles wept before their televi-
sions, lowered flags to half-staff
and taped black ribbons in their
windows after hearing that the
upper echelons of the establish-
ment lay dead in woods a short
drive from the site of the Katyn
forest massacre, one of Poland's
greatest national traumas.
Thousands of people, many in
tears, placed candles and flowers
at the presidential palace in cen-
tral Warsaw. Many called the
crash Poland's worst disaster
since World War II.
Twenty monks rang the
Zygmunt bell at Krakow's Wawel
Cathedral - the burial spot of


Polish kings - a tolling reserved
for times of profound importance
or grief.
The crash also shocked Russia.
Sensing the depth of'the tragedy
for Poland, Prime Minister
Vladimir Putin personally took
charge of the investigation and
very quickly and publicly offered
condolences, along with Russian
President Dmitry Medvedev.
"Oq this difficult day the peo-
ple of Russia stand with the
Polish people," Medvedev said,
according to the Kremlin press
service.
Chunks of the plane were scat-
tered widely amid leafless trees
and small fires in woods shroud-
ed with fog. A tail fin with the red
and white national colors of
Poland stuck up from the smok-
ing debris. .Early indications
pointed to pildt error in heavy fog
as a factor in the crash, officials
said.
On board were the national
bank president, deputy foreign
minister, army chaplain, head of
the National Security Office,
deputy parliament speaker,
Olympic Committee head, civil
rights commissioner and at least


two presidential aides and three
lawmakers, the Polish foreign
ministry said. Kaczynski's wife,
Maria, also died.
"This is unbelievable - this
tragic, .cursed Katyn,"
Kaczynski's predecessor,
Aleksander Kwasniewski, said
on TVN24 television.
It is "a cursed place, horrible
symbolism," he said. "It's hard to
believe. You get chills down your
spine."
The Polish military suffered
the deepest losses. Among the
dead were the army chief of staff,
the navy chief commander, and
heads of the air and land forces,
who were all making the emo-
tional trip to honor the Polish
officers slain by the NKVD, the
acronym for the Soviet secret
police at the time of the murders
in 1940.
Some on board were relatives of
the officers slain in the Katyn
massacre. Also among the' victims
was Anna Walentynowicz, whose
firing in August 1980 from the
Lenin Shipyards in Gdansk
sparked a workers' strike that
spurred the eventual creation of
the Solidarity freedom movement.


Afghanistan, Karl
Eikenberry, said in a foot-
note to a news conference
Saturday in the capital
announcing $20 million in
U.S. assistance to bolster
local governance.
Across town at NATO
headquarters, Karzai joked
with U.S. Gen. Stanley
McChryst.al, the top NATO
commander in
Afghanistan, during a
security briefing with sen-
ior military officials and
members of the Afghan
Cabinet.
Karzai talked about his
aspirations for a May con-
ference to develop a
national consensus for
reaching peace with the
Taliban, heard a security
update on Kunduz province
in northern Afghanistan
and had lunch with top
officials from' the interna-
tional coalition.
Tension between Karzai.
and the U.S. was running
high even before Obama
made his first presidential
.visit to Afghanistan.
En route to Kabul on
March 28, Obama's nation-
al security adviser, Gen.
Jim Jones, told reporters
that the White House need-
ed to make the Afghan
president understand that
there are certain things that
have not been paid atten-
tion to "almost since Day
1."
He cited Western pres-
sure for Karzai to pick gov-
ernment officials based on
credentials, not cronyism,
battle corruption, and fight
narcotrafficking, which
helps to finance the insur-
gency.


N. Korea warns S. Korea

over anti-Pyongyang leaflets


BY KWANG-TAE KIM
ASSOCIATED PRESS WRITER

SEOUL, South Korea -
North Korea's military
warned South Koreans on
Saturday to stop floating
leaflets over the border that
criticize the isolated
regime, threatening deci-
sive action if the propagan-
da continues.
The military also claimed
in a message.to Seoul's mil-
itary that South Koreans
who cross the border into
the North for joint projects
were waging a psychologi-
cal campaign to discredit
Pyongyang. The two
Koreas agreed in 2004 to
end decades of propaganda
- carried in radio broad-
casts or leaflets sent over
their militarized border or
blared on loudspeakers -
as part of reconciliation on
the divided peninsula.,
Still, activists and some
North Korean defectors liv-
ing in the South continue to
send balloons, into the
North with messages -
and sometimes $1 bills -
condemning North Korean
leader Kim Jong II and his
communist regime.
North Korea's govern-
ment is intolerant of any
criticism of Kim, an author-
itarian leader who is the
subject of a cult of person-
ality.
In recent'years, the North
hap demanded that Seoul


stop propaganda cam-
paigns. South Korea's con-
servative government has
asked the activists to stop
sending leaflets, but says
they are not breaking any
laws and so it cannot prose-
cute them.
The North Korean mili-
tary will take "decisive
measures soon unless the
South side takes an under-
standable measure for dis-
continuing the despicable
psychological smear cam-
paign and formally notifies
the North side of it."
The message, carried by
the North's official Korean
Central News Agency, did
not elaborate, but it indicat-
ed the North may not guar-
antee the safety of South
Koreans who pass through
the tense border to work at
joint projects.
A South Korean Defense
Ministry spokesman was
not immediately available
for comment.
The warning came two
days after North Korea
announced it would drop
South Korea as a partner in
Diamond Mountain, a joint
tourism project seen as a
symbol of reconciliation.
Inter-Korean relations
have strained since South
Korea's conservative
President Lee Myung-bak
took office in 2008 pledg-
ing to take a harder line
with its communist neigh-
bor.

A 'Glee' club we


can all
BY ROB OWEN
PIrTSBURGH POST-GAZETTE
HOLLYWOOD, Calif. -
The .day after winning the
Golden Globe Award for best
comedy/musical, the young
cast of Fox's "Glee" did not
look any worse for having had
a victorious night on the town.
As bright and shiny as this
series about a high-school glee
club, cast members spoke
enthusiastically about this
long-shot-for-success show
that has become a pop-culture
buzz-generating phenomenon.
So far, the show's young stars
are not a jaded bunch. In a
recent phone interview, cast
member Heather Morris, who
plays dumb cheerleader
Brittany, wished a reporter a
"Happy Easter," a pleasant
salutation in the real world
that might be less likely to
cross the lips of a hardened
Hollywood veteran.
"We're like little kids in a
candy store getting to do all of
these songs," said Kevin
McHale, who plays Artie, the
glee-club singer who's in a
wheelchair. "When you open
the script and see the list of
songs, it's not only the amount
of songs and different types of
songs. It's how they are used
in the scenes that make them
so special each time."
Despite rain earlier on this
January day, the clouds
cleared over the soundstages
at Paramount Pictures that
house the sets of "Glee" (9:28-
10:30 p.m. EDT Tuesday).
Given the show's cheery dis-
position and its young stars'
enthusiasm, it's easy to imag-

Q: Years ago, while watch-
ing 'The Lawrence Welk
Show" with my parents, I was
in awe of trumpeter Johnny
Zell. He was as good as Harry
James, and I loved listening to
him play. Now, as an adult, I
still watch the reruns of the
show and still enjoy listening
to Zell. What can you tell me
about him? - J.V.H. e-mail
A: Johnny Zell entered the
world on an army base in Fort
Benning, Ga., on Nov. 24,
1947. Growing up in
California, he studied music
and eventually auditioned for
Lawrence Welk at age 15.
Story goes that Welk was
impressed, but thought he was
too young to hire. Next, fol-
lowing a stint in the army, a
second, this time successful,
audition with Welk occurred.
From 1968 to 1982, Zell
became one of the show's most
popular musicians. He has
since become a born-again
Christian and concentrates on
Christian music. He lives in
Oregon with his wife Laura;
.they have four children.

BRIDGE


Over the last two days we have been looking at the rare suit-
preference opening lead. On almost all deals, though,when lead-
ing, just follow BoSToN: Bottom of Something, Top of Nothing. If
you lead a low card, you promise at least one honor in that suit.
When leading from a suit without an honor, lead an unnecessar-
ily high card. And note that this applies not just at trick one, but
also whenever the defense opens a suit not yet led by either side.
There is one exception to this rule, which is highlighted by
today's deal. What should West lead against four spades?
Some Norths would open three clubs with that hand, but it
isn't textbook. Then, after East opens one heart, South should
jump straight to four spades. He needs only the diamond ace in
his partner's hand to be laydown for game. (Even the heart ace or
club ace might be sufficient, permitting South to lead toward his
diamond king, hoping the opener has the ace.) A slam is unlike-
ly given North's pass, and South's bid might make responder's
life a nightmare.
When you lead partner's suit and have not raised that suit, giv-
ing length information is more important than strength informa-
tion. Here, West must lead the heart two. East will win with his
nine and cash the heart ace. Then, knowing South is out of
hearts, East will shift to the diamond two, gaining the defense the
first four tricks. If West leads the heart seven, East will assume
his partner started with a doubleton and fatally try to cash a third
trick in the suit. Finally, if West has raised hearts, he would lead
the seven.
