District School Board meeting

disrupted by a man who pulled
out a gun while the meeting was

in progress.
The man, 56-year-old Clay

himself, according to The

Panama City Police Chief John

building was hurt. Duke pulled out a spray can of

approached the podium and said
that he had a motion to make.

School Superintendent Bill
Husfelt said was a large handgun.

Husfelt said at one point, the
gun was pointed directly at him.
"'It was a .45 caliber gun, but it
was so big it looked like a shot-
gun when it was pointed at me."
Husfelt said.

catches fire

Marianna Fire Chief Byron Bennett ascends a ladder to fight a fire at Kentucky Fried Chicken Tuesday morning. The fire is
believed to have originated in the heating and air conditioning system, Bennett said. The majority of damage was confined
to the kitchen and the area above it, according to Bennett. Flames were showing when firefighters arrived around 11:30
a.m. Bennett said the fire apparently traveled from the HVAC system into the restaurant via air ducts. Crews had the fire
under control by noon, but continued to remove smoldering, pieces of the ceiling and other damaged and potentially dan-
gerous materials. Deborah Buckhalter/Floridan

Roof work set for another bid

County rejects all bids to work on Lewis Building

The Jackson County
Commission rejected all bids
offered to replace the aging
roof of the Lewis Building, a
structure next door to the
county administrative offices
on Madison Street in
The county recently bought
the building, and plans to store
records there, in addition to
turning some of the space into
County Administrator Ted
Lakey said he wants to move
the county finance department
into the 5,000 square foot
structure, but will need county
commission approval to do so.
Before records or people go
in, however, the roof has to be
fixed and the interior renovated.
On Tuesday, the commis-
sion received the list of five
companies that bid on the roof
replacement. According to
county staff, only one was
qualified to receive the job.
Most failed to carry out the
county's required, process for
bidding. Some of the contrac-
tors failed to furnish papers as
required: they were required
to send the county a fax ahead
of time, stating they planned
to bid on the project. One con-
tractor also "has too many
requirements/liabilities of
owner," according to the
paperwork provided to corn-.
The only company who
complied and was deemed a
viable bidder. Streamline

Carl Griffin and Ricky Robinson cut a piece of drywall to fit while working on the Lewis
Building Tuesday. Mark Skinner/Floridan

Roofing and Construction,
was also the low bidder and
the only one who offered a
price on a metal roof as
opposed to a membrane roof.
County staff indicated that
Streamline CEO Ralph Davis
was verbally advised that he
could include a metal roof in
.his bid, if he wanted.
Although the bid specifica-
tions did not say what type of
roof should be offered, all the
bidders but Streamline offered
prices only on a membrane
roof. Streamline offered prices
on both.
At a pre-bid meeting, held
on the building's existing roof,
the companies and county
staff had a discussion that

could have implied everyone
should be bidding in an
"apples to apples" fashion,
according to an explanation
given after Tuesday's commis-
sion meeting. It was unclear
whether that referred to bid-
ding on the same type of mate-
rials, or whether that referred
to the fact that the county's
building next door has a mem-
brane roof and a match was
desired in the renovation of
the Lewis Building.
Davis was at Tuesday's
meeting. and said he thought
the others didn't include a
metal roof in their bids
because they didn't think it
could be built for a price as
low as he offered. He brought

some roofing samples with
him and was prepared to show
commissioners the benefits of
a metal roof over a membrane
roof, but the commission did
not hear that presentation.
Instead, because commis-
sioners have now decided they
may want to go with a metal
roof, the .item will be put out
to bid again, to give all con-
tractors the option of offering
either type.
As the roof bidding process
progresses, interior work on the
structure has already begun.
Walls have been prepared
for painting, old ceiling tiles
have been removed, and other
work is in progress, the com-
mission was informed.

shot on

duty is






for heroism
A Sneads police officer who was shot in
the line of duty this summer will be the
parade marshal at his city's Christmas
parade Friday.
The selection for the honor was
announced Tuesday by Sneads Police
Chief Burt McAlpin.
Brett Preston was shot three times while
pursuing Lawrence Curtis Baker in a chase
this July. The chase ended in a field across
from Apalachee Correctional Institution.
Preston pursued Baker into a field and,
while sitting in his patrol car, was shot in
the hand and arm, and took a grazing shot
to the neck, McAlpin said.
Preston returned fire after Baker started
shooting at him, and struck Baker in the
foot and the lower torso. Both men were
treated and released on the same day they
were shot, July 3.
Baker has been charged with the
attempted murder of a law enforcement
officer and with being a felon in posses-
sion of a firearm. Florida Department of
Law Enforcement determined that
Preston's decision to return fire was a jus-
tified use of deadly force. In a letter relat-
ing to that finding, State Attorney Glenn
Hess wrote that Preston was justified in
firing at and striking Baker because Baker
pulled his pistol and shot Preston first, in
an attempted homicide of a law enforce-
ment officer. Hess based his finding on an
investigative summary by FDLE showing
that Baker is a habitual felony offender
with a history of violence, a fact known to
local law enforcement, and that he had
forced a woman to transport him in her car
against her will on the day of the shooting.
Hess went on to.say that the woman saw
a police officer when she was in the car
with Baker and tried to draw the officer's
attention. Preston was coincidentally try-
ing to make contact with that same
woman, about an incident she'd reported
which involved Baker. When the woman
stopped her car to talk with Preston, the
officer didn't realize Baker was inside it.
according to Hess. Baker tried to walk
away, and failed to stop when ordered to
do so by Preston. Preston then followed
Baker in his cruiser. Baker, by then on
foot, pulled a gun and shot Preston during
this pursuit, according to Hess.
Baker is currently set for a pre-trial
hearing at 1:30 p.m. on Jan. 4. 2011. on
the charges stemming from this case.
In addition to naming Preston Sneads'
parade marshal, McAlpin also presented
Preston with a plaque Tuesday night rec-
ognizing his heroism in the incident.
In a letter of commendation accompany-
ing the plaque, McAlpin wrote that
Preston was bleeding and in pain after he
was shot, but still had the presence of

Our Opinion t \ I I
-I' ,.m

The shape

of things

to come?

As we've noted in previous editions on
this page. while the recession may be
over. municipalities are only now just
beginning to feel the pinch.
With tax revenues falling, governments
in Jackson County will be forced to either
cut spending, raise taxes or both. A recent
decision by fire departments in Bascom
and Malone may point to another way to
handle it.
The two volunteer fire departments
have decided to merge. Increased training
needs and training costs forced the two to
look for ways to cut their expenses. A
merger was in the best interests of both
communities both get to keep their fire
departments, and at less cost.
There are approximately a dozen
municipalities in Jackson County. And
while most like to hang on to their inde-
pendence let's face it, that's the main
reason most chose to incorporate -
maintaining a free-standing bureaucracy
isn't cheap.
As these smaller communities try to
cope with falling revenues and tighter
budgets, consolidating and mergering
some services will come to make more
and more sense.
If the choice is between losing some
independence, or losing a vital communi-
ty service, mergers may be the only
viable option available.

WikiLeaks spurs Big Brother to strike


WikiLeaks is exposing the
way our government conducts
"business." It is not a pretty
process. Sometimes Uncle Sam
limps along like a powerless
giant, as when secretaries of
State Condoleezza Rice and
Hillary Clinton vainly plead
with China to stop facilitating
the military rise of Iran. (But
don't let that stop you from .
buying that made-in-China flat-
screen TV for Christmas. Great
price.) Sometimes Uncle Sam
slimes around like the mob, as
when shutting down opposition
to the Copenhagen climate
accord is his racquet and bully-
ing is his game.
The rock-bottom worst of the
revelations, however, shows
Uncle Sam patronizing the
American people, lying to us
about fundamental issues that
any democracy catastrophically
attacked and supporting armies
abroad ever since doesn't mere-
'ly deserve to know, but needs to
know. Our democracy demands
it, if it is to remain a democra-
Most pundits, certainly on the
Right, disagree. As
Commentary editor Gabriel
Schoenfeld wrote in the WSJ
this week: WikiLeaks "is not
informing our democracy but
waging war on its ability to

conduct diplomacy and defend
Funny, but I feel more
informed and particularly
about what a rotten job the gov.-
ernment knows it's doing in
conducting diplomacy and wag-
ing war on democracy's behalf.
I know more about the govern-
ment's feckless accommodation
of incomparable corruption in
Afghanistan; its callousness
toward Pakistani government
support for the Taliban and
other groups fighting our sol-
diers in Afghanistan; its inabili-
ty to prevail upon "banker"
China to stop facilitating the
military rise of Iran (mentioned
above but worth a reminder)
and its failures to prevail upon
aid-recipient Pakistan to allow
us to secure its vulnerable
nuclear assets.
One running theme that
emerges from the leaked cables
is the U.S. government consis-
tently obscures the identity of
the nation's foes, for example,
depicting the hostile peoples of
Saudi Arabia and the Gulf
States as "allies." It's not that
such hostility is a secret, or
even constitutes news. But the
cables reveal that our diplomats
actually recognize these coun-
tries form the financial engine
that drives global jihad, or, as
they mincingly prefer to call it,
"terrorism." But they, with the

rest of the government, kept the
American people officially in
the dark.
Then came WikiLeaks,
Internet publisher of leaked
information, prompting the
question: What is more impor-
tant -the information theft that
potentially harms government
power, or the knowledge con-
tained therein that might sal-
vage our national destiny?
Whether such information
was originally "classified," the
body politic should be electri-
fied by the fact, as revealed by
the leaked cables, that nations
from Pakistan to Afghanistan to
Saudi Arabia are regularly dis-
cussed as black holes of infinite
corruption into which American
money gushes, either through
foreign aid or oil revenue, and
unstaunched and unstaunchable
sources of terror or terror-
financing. If this were to get out
- and guess what, it did the
foreign policy of at least the
past two administrations,
Democrat and Republican alike,
would be unmasked as a colos-
sal failure.
And maybe that's what
behind the acute distress over
WikiLeaks. Last week, I put it
down to political embarrass-
ment; this week, a new, more
disturbing factor has emerged.
The state power structure, the
establishment more or less,

believes itself to be threatened.
Its fearful response has been
quite startling. First, there were
calls for WikiLeaks' editor
Julian Assange's execution;
these have simmered down to
calls for trial. Amazon and
PayPal cut off service to the
WikiLeaks' website. Then, in a
twist or kink perhaps beyond
even Orwell's ken, Assange was
arrested without bond this week
on an Interpol warrant over very
fishy-sounding charges about
"unprotected" sex in Sweden -
a country, we may now ironi-
cally note, of draconian laws
governing sexual intercourse
and no laws whatsoever govern-
ing violent Islamic no-go zones.
Things went completely
"1984"-ish when the federal
government weighed in, actual-
ly warning federal employees
not to read the WikiLeaks mate-
rials still "classified," after
all. Creepier still, the Library of
Congress followed suit, volun-
tarily blocking the WikiLeaks
site from library computers.
Now, universities are warning
students not to post public com-
ments about WikiLeaks on
Facebook or Twitter lest Big
Brother takes note and holds a
federal employment grudge.
Suddenly, it's not about secret
information anymore, or diplo-
matic relations. It's about con-
trol. The atmosphere chills.

Tax deal 'government by hostage-taking'


President Barack Obama
made good this week on his
word to listen to the voice of
the people who spoke this
past election: "We want con-
gressional cooperation and
On Monday, President
Obama announced the frame-
work of a deal with
Republicans to extend an
array of tax cuts as well as
unemployment-insurance ben-
efits. The deal, if approved by
. Congress, will extend tax cuts
for both the middle class and
wealthiest Americans. It will
also give millions of
Americans scheduled to lose
their unemployment benefits a
lifeline for another year.
Many Democrats on the
Hill and elsewhere screamed
"capitulation." It seems every-
one was angry with him. He
even admonished his liberal
critics and referred to them as
The president has chosen
compromise over combat, a
basic deal that some econo-
mists are arguing could
reduce unemployment and put
the country on a path to more
growth. In return, the wealthi-
est Americans get the gift of
two years of tax breaks that
are superior to everyone
The Los Angeles Times
called the deal: "a
Frankensteinian mishmash..."
saying its best part is its expi-
ration date.
In Congress, the far right
joined the almost-as-far left in
issuing apocalyptic threats of

party revolt and filibusters -
if they must to kill the
Only the amoral Republican
leadership was unashamedly
upbeat. Sen. Mitch
McConnell declared victory
for having benefited the
Republican Party's most
prized constituency: the rich-
est of the rich.
We're talking about superi-
or (better than anyone else's)
tax breaks for the nation's top
income earners. As a prior
result, 2 percent of the popu-
lation cornered two-thirds of
the country's earned income.
That left one-third for 90 per-
cent of Americans. This is
gross inequality.
In justifying the deal, the
president talked about com-
promise. The truth of it is this
tax deal was carved out from
the electoral flogging
Democrats received last
month. Was it as the president
refers to it during a press con-
ference government by
hostage-taking? Of course.
The president didn't cut a
deal. He paid the ransom the
Republicans demanded.
Al Hunt, executive editor of
Bloomberg News, told jour-
nalist Charlie Rose that the
president "did it because he
felt he had no choice,
Hunt added, "The question
(critics will raise), is could he
have gotten a better deal?"
Charlie Rose then asked
Hunt, "So therefore both sides
could have made a better
Said Hunt, "Well, I don't
know if the Republicans

could have, because they got
exactly what they want."
"Frankly, the White House
didn't handle this very well,"
Hunt said. "But I will say the
Congress really botched this
Hunt called the Dems' deci-
sion not to vote on tax cuts
before the election "a cata-
strophic political mistake."
He's right.
Neither, let me add, did the
president use his campaign
bully pulpit. He could have
lambasted the Republicans for
holding all issues captive for
party gain. He negotiated a
package that was written by
Republicans for Republicans.
For God's sake, the estate tax
deal is better than it was
under George W. Bush!
For everyone involved, I
call it political malfeasance.
Purely as a campaign strate-
gy, the Republicans blocked
everything, without exception,
that the president and
Democrats did to fulfill their
2008 campaign promises.
To those Democrats who,
feel the president "sold out,"
let me ask if they would meet
Republican ransom demands
if their political dreams were
beings sent back piecemeal,
first a finger, then an ear?
The Republican Leadership
talked compromise publicly.
Yet they voted down every
compromise. They voted
against extending unemploy-
ment benefits. They voted
against Wall Street reform and
paycheck fairness for women.
They hold up nominees to
important positions in govern-
ment and even treaties that

they once supported.
They vote against every-
thing if Obama is behind it.
Now they appear interested
only because they get every-
thing, not just a few crummy
amendments everything
they want out of a deal. These
Republicans are shameless.
But so are the Democrats who
failed to act before the lame-
duck session for fear the
Republicans would use it as a
campaign issue against them.
By worrying about 30-sec-
ond ads warning voters that
Democrats would raise taxes
or even being obsessed that
Republicans would "dema-
gogue" this issue if the cur-
rent tax cuts would be
allowed to expire, Democrats
created the crisis they now
object to.
President Obama was left to
cut the best deal.
Though many partisans on
the right vehemently disagree,
since taking office, President
Obama has tried to get
Republicans on many bills,
but the GOP leadership made
clear from Day One that they
would oppose everything,
starting with the economic
Things in Washington are a
lot different now. The presi-
dent can't just focus on
Democratic priorities. And he
can't give Republicans every-
thing they want, either.
Obama has to figure out how
to work with the Republicans
In Congress to get the things
he wants done, too.
Looks like this is where we
will start 2011. Like 2010.
Forever gridlocked.

Helicopters used to save crops from rare chill

freeze could wipe out their
The choppers hover low
over green bean and sweet

and forth in the early morn-
ing hours to push warmer
air closer to the plants -
and, the farmers hope, save
the plants from a deadly
Farmers are especially
nervous because an 11-day
freeze in January wiped out
many crops, from corn to
kumquats. Florida is the
largest U.S. winter produc-
er of sweet corn the kind
people eat.
It was too windy to use
helicopters Tuesday mom-
ing, but John Hundley, a
corn, bean and sugar cane
farmer in Palm Beach
County, said he would try
Tuesday night if winds
calmed and temperatures
did not warm up.
Asked what he would do
to protect his crops in the
meantime, Hundley sighed.
"I can get on my knees
and pray right now," he
said. "It looks like it's pret-
ty much out of our hands."

The stakes are high: In
2009, the value of produc-
tion of sweet corn from
Florida was $227 million.
"'They have hundreds of
thousands, millions of dol-
lars in crops." said Paul
Allen, president of the
Florida Sweet Corn
The helicopter technique
can be the last line of
defense, but it's expensive:
It costs about $2.500 an
hour to fly one helicopter
over the crops, and the
length of flights depends
on a mix of temperatures
and wind conditions.
Here's how it works: The
air 50 feet above the crops
is warmer than the air near
the plants. The helicopter
blades push the warm air
down and the temperature
goes up, said David Sui, a
University of Florida
expert on vegetables and
tropical fruits. The warmer
air prevents cold and frost
from settling on the plants.
"Even if it raises the tem-
perature a couple of
degrees it may save the
crops," he said.
The technique isn't a
new one, as farmers have
long hired helicopters to
keep their crops from
freezing. And growers in
California also have used
helicopters. But it's still

Last week. three helicpp-
ters crashed within a matter
of hours in South Florida
during missions to protect
crops from the cold. All
three pilots survived.
One helicopter went
down shortly after mid-
night last Wednesday near
a rural airport in Palm
Beach County. A second
helicopter crashed before
dawn when the pilot made
an emergency landing after
a tail rotor broke. He suf-
fered minor injuries. A
third pilot was seriously
hurt when his helicopter
crashed in a field a few
hours later.
Green beans and sweet
corn are cultivated in the
nutrient-rich muck soil
located near the Florida
Everglades, though farmers
in other parts of the state

bles, many of which are
near harvest.
Strawberry farmers are
spraying water on the
plants, so the heat lost from

Revenue estimate adds $1B to budget gap


- State economists have
significantly reduced their
estimate of general fund
revenue collections, a revi-
sion that will add at least
$1 billion to a potential
$2.5 billion budget short-
fall for the next fiscal year.
The new estimate -

forecast that last month

The economists previ-

All factors that go into
the budget gap haven't yet
been calculated, so it could
grow to more than $3.5 bil-
lion, said legislative econo-
mist Amy Baker.
The shortfall also
depends on policy decision
that lawmakers will make,
Baker said. House leaders,
for example, want to set
aside $1 billion for a "rainy
day" reserve fund. That
would widen the gap to at
least $4.5 billion.

Finding a home for

county pageant float

Fi Vin S'l.5 i V',I Uf!

The Jackson County
Commission is trying to
help Jackson County's pag-
eant queens find a perma-
nent home for their float.
and a place' to decorate it
for various events.
The float had been tem-
porarily housed at the city-
owned. former Alliance
Laundry Service building
in the Marianna Industrial
With potential tenants
interested in the structure,
pageant officials were
asked to move it about a
month ago.
Marianna City Manager
Jim Dean said he regrets
having to ask that the float
be moved, but said it is
imperative that the city
keep the building unclut-
tered so that potential ten-
ants can go in at a
moment's notice to see the
250,000 square foot build-

the county commission at
the meeting Tuesday, ask-
ing for the county's help.
Commissioners hit upon
a potential partial solution.
The Jackson County
Health Department has a
storage shed, which is split
into two bays and located
next to the county's main
fire station off Caverns
Road. One of the storage

bays is not in regular use.
Jackson County Fire
Rescue Chief Tony Wesley
was directed to ask Jackson
County Health Director
William Long if one of the
bays might be used for the
floats, it's enclosed on
three sides and. in good
weather, should suffice at
least for a while. It may not
be a big enough space for
decorators to work in. how-
ever. leaving another prob-
lem to be solved in the long
run. -Pageant officials are
asking the county to use its
contacts to find a space for
that purpose, as well.
The commission took
other action Tuesday to
help with the expense of
some recent repairs to the
float. A private supporter
recently spent more than
$2,000 to fix some rotting
wood and other problems,
the commission was told.
Commissioners agreed to
contribute $1,500 toward
reimbursing the individual,
provided receipts for the
materials used are turned

House Dems stew over

Obama's handling of tax deal


struggle over tax cuts is seri-
ously straining President
Barack Obama's relation-
ship with House Democrats,
who have backed him on
key issues even when it cost
them politically.
Expressing hurt,
Democratic lawmakers say
Obama ignored them at cru-
cial negotiating moments,
misled them about his inten-
tions and made needless
concessions to Republicans.
The president has respond-
ed that he acted honorably
and drove the best bargain he
could. But even his explana-
tions offended some long-
time allies. Aides to House
Speaker Nancy Pelosi grum-
bled about' a Dec. 7 news
conference in which Obama
claimed that some liberals
would feel "sanctimonious

are" by refusing to compro-.

hard enough to deliver on
his campaign promises,"
said Rep. Alan Grayson of
Florida, one of dozens of
House Democrats defeated
in last month's elections.
Obama had House
Democratic leaders "go
through what turned out to
be Potemkin meetings with
his staff, when the real nego-
tiations were being done
elsewhere," he said.
Rep. Elijah Cummings, a
Maryland Democrat who has
strongly supported Obama
and won re-election last
month, told MSNBC the
chief House representative

how much political damage
Obamna will suffer because
of disenchantment among
House members. His allies
note that House Democrats
will be in the minority in the
new Congress, and it's
essential for the president to
negotiate with Republicans
to get things done.

Still, the estrangement is
.notable because House
Democrats have been
Obama's most dependable
allies in his first two years in
office. They passed a politi-
cally risky energy bill to cap
greenhouse gasses, only to
see the Senate ignore it.
When the Senate refused to
make further changes to this
year's hard-fought health
care overhaul bill, House
Democrats swallowed their
anger, accepting big conces-
sions to keep it alive.
Key liberal groups have
attacked the tax plan, which
would extend Bush-era tax
cuts for two years for all
Americans, poor and rich
alike. But the deal would tax
large, multimillion-dollar
inheritances at a rate lower
than many had expected, and
that infuriates many liberals.
. Some of Obama's long-
time allies have lashed out.
Illinois Rep. Jesse L.
Jackson Jr. said of the tax
deal, "If we recklessly cut
taxes for the wealthiest 2
percent, then Obamanomics

Long legal fight ahead

for Obama's health law


scorecard on the legal fight
over President Barack
Obama's health care over-
haul is two judges in favor
and one against.
But these are the early
rounds in preliminary
bouts. The one that really
counts a showdown at
the Supreme Court is at
least a year away.
The health care law suf-
fered its first major legal
setback. Monday when a
federal judge declared that
the heart of the sweeping
legislation is unconstitu-
tional. The decision handed
Republican foes ammuni-
tion for their repeal effort
next year.
The ruling by U.S.
District Judge Henry E.
Hudson, a Republican
appointee in Richmond,
Va., marked the first suc-
cessful court challenge to
any portion of the new law,
following two earlier rul-
ings in its favor by
judges. A number of other
lawsuits were dismissed
early on, without rulings on
the substance of the law.
The law's central require-
ment for nearly all
Americans to carry insur-
ance is unconstitutional,
well beyond Congress'
power to mandate, Hudson
ruled. That put him in the
same camp as Virginia
Attorney General Ken
Cuccinelli the
Republican who filed the
suit and many of the
GOP lawmakers who will
take control of the U.S.
House in January.
But Hudson denied
Virginia's request to strike
down the law in its entirety
or block it from being
implemented while his rul-
ing is appealed by the
Obama administration.
"An individual's personal
decision to purchase or
decline to purchase -
health insurance from a pri-
vate provider is beyond the
historical- reach of the
Commerce Clause," said-
Hudson, a 2002 appointee

"Keep in mind this is one ruling by
one federal district court. We've
already had two federal district
courts that have ruled that this is
definitely constitutional."
-Barack Obama
U.S. President

of President George W.
Another judge in Florida,
a GOP appointee, has not
ruled in another lawsuit -
brought by 20 states against
the legislation though he
has signaled trouble for the
administration. Arguments
in that lawsuit, which also
challenges whether the fed-
eral government can require
states to expand their
Medicaid programs, get
under way Thursday in
Nevertheless, the White
Hduse predicted it would
prevail in the Supreme
"Keep in mind this is one
ruling by one federal dis-
trict court. We've already
had two federal district
courts that have ruled that
this is definitely constitu-
tional," President Barack
Obama said Monday in an
interview with television
station WFLA in Tampa,
"You've got one judge
who disagreed. That's the
nature of these things."
Federal appeals courts
based in Atlanta, Cincinnati
and Richmond make up the
next set of judges who will
have their say on the law,
though their rulings are at
least months away. Justice
Department spokeswoman
Tracy Schmaler confirmed
Tuesday that the adminis-
tration will appeal
Hudson's ruling. Once
appellate judges have
weighed in, the next appeal
is to the -Supreme Court.
In April, Justice Stephen
Breyer predicted an eventu-
al high court hearing for the
health care overhaul. That
might not happen until after

In the short term, the lat-
est court ruling hands
potent ammunition to GOP
opponents as they prepare
to assert control in the new
Congress with promises to
repeal the law. Obama in
turn has vowed to veto any
repeal legislation and
appears likely to prevail
since Democrats retain con-
trol of the Senate.
Republicans also have dis-
cussed trying to starve the
law of funding.
Whatever the eventual
outcome, Monday's ruling
could create uncertainty
around the administration's
efforts to gradually put into
effect the landmark legisla-
tion extending health cover-
age to more than 30 million
uninsured Americans. And
it can only increase the pub-
lic's skepticism, which has'
not significantly receded in
the months since the law's
enactment, defying
Obama's prediction that it
would become more popu-
lar as Americans got to
know it. .
Obama aides said imple-
mentation would not be
affected, noting that the
individual insurance
requirement and other
major portions of the legis-
lation don't take effect until
2014. Some provisions of
the law took effect in

They left open the option of

es are intended to lower
long-term interest rates, lift

Critics, however, contend
that the program would do
little to help the economy
and could hurt it by unleash-
ing inflation and speculative
buying in assets like stocks.
A broad tax-cut plan is
emerging in Congress and is
easing pressure on the Fed to
stimulate growth through its
bond purchases.
In deciding to stay the
course, the Fed said the
"economic recovery is con-
tinuing, thought at a rate that
has been insufficient to bring
down unemployment."
Other than spotlighting
the high unemployment rate,
the Fed's statement was
essentially the same as the
one issued after policymak-

program at their Nov. 3

since Bartz hired former

division last spring.

Unemployment rose to
9.8 percent in November, a
seven-month high. It has
exceeded 9 percent for a
record stretch of 19 months.
And some economists pre-
dict it could climb to 10 per-
cent by early next year.
Concerns about persist-
ently high unemployment
was the main motivation
behind the Fed's decision to

That's due largely to
Miami's stubborn defense.
Offseason acquisitions,
including defensive coor-

linebacker Karlos Dansby,
have helped greatly.
Nolan, a former San
Francisco 49ers head
coach who was Denver's
defensive coordinator last
season, has pulled together

role on the field as the
defensive leader.

a two point shot during the second half of an NBA game in Miami on Monday.

be quiet when Cavs visit

MIAMI No extra
security this time. No con-
cerns about unrest in the
stands. Probably not much
in the way of organized
"Akron Hates You,' chants,
LeBron vs. Cleveland,
Round 2 awaits in Miami
on Wednesday.
And it won't have any-
where near the cache of the
first meeting.
James took notice of that
truth on Tuesday when the
Heat finished practice and
only a dozen or so
reporters were in the gym,
as opposed to the "300," by
his own estimate,, who
were around the team for
the buildup to Miami's trip
to Cleveland back on Dec.
2 the two-time MVP's
return to the city he jilted
by signing with the Heat.
Led by James, Miami
won by 28 that night, even
with fans chanting that his
hometown hates him and
other rather colorful things
for much of the evening.

The Heat haven't lost
since. Cleveland hasn't
won since.
"It doesn't feel like just
another opponent," James
That's because, well,
Cleveland isn't just anoth-
er opponent. Not to James,
He was criticized for
talking to some Cavs' play-
ers, longtime friend Daniel
Gibson in particular, and
Cleveland's bench during
the game two weeks ago.
More heat might be
coming, because James
apparently has more to say
to his old team. ,
"I'll probably be talk-
ing to them ... again," said
James, who insisted that
there was no joking
around going on during
the exchanges he had in
the Dec. 2 inatchup.
Not much is funny to
Cleveland these days.
Losers of eight straight
- four of those by at
least 20 whatever good
feeling there was over a
5-5 start without James is
long gone now. Cavaliers

guard Mo Williams
downplayed the rematch
between teams headin- in
opposite directions.
"Our concern is not
them right now, it's us,.
Williams said following
practice Tuesday. "We're
going through a tough
time right now and we
need to get a win. We
need to stay positive and
stay focused and this
thing will turn around."

stuff wasn't saucy

The Golden touch

Hurricanes new
coach lays out
the groundwork
for success

Miami coach Al Golden
was to be picked up for
his first day in the
Hurricanes football office
at 8:15 a.m.
He was ready at 8:14.
And that might have
been the only unsched-
uled minute of his first
full day with the
Golden woke up
Sunday as Temple's foot-
ball coach; when his day
started Tuesday, his wife
was looking for a new
South Florida home, he
was trying to figure out
which of his new keys fit
into what lock, and ham-
mering out final details of
his five-year contract
with the Hurricanes that
could be worth up to $2
million annually if cer-
tain incentives are
"I'm here now and I'm
ready," Golden told The
Associated Press in a rare
quiet moment in his new
office, where the sounds
of football players clang-
ing iron in the weight
room below could be
clearly heard. "But
there's a million things
that have to be done."
There were some major
things on that list. Some
not-so-major ones, too.
Golden is living in a
Miami dormitory for
now, and his parking spot
was unfilled Tuesday a
car provided by the uni-
versity will be coming
In his office, a few
shirts were strewn over
one chair, his suit jacket
over another at the end of
the long conference table
by windows overlooking
the practice fields.
And by the door, a new
carry-on suitcase and lap-
top bag, both with his
name, sat with the tags
still attached.
"There's so much going
on, a lot going on,"
Golden said.
He did a few inter-
views, met with athletic
and academic staff, and
got a briefing from Corey
Bell, the team's director
of football operations,
about where certain
things stand. There were
some little details get-
ting his wife directions to
the bookstore so she
could pick up some
Miami gear for their kids
to tend to, along with
.big ones, like a long list
of human-resources
"A lot of what's going
on is being driven by the
sensitivity of the recruit-
ing calendar," Golden
said in the morning.
"There's kids that we
have to call and go see.
But I'm not even hired
yet. So we have to for-
malize that."
By the afternoon, it was
formalized, signed and
sealed. Golden was
cleared to recruit as a rep-
resentative of the univer-
With recruiting having
been largely paused dur-
ing the transition to
Golden, there was no
time to waste.
Outside the wooden
doors leading to his
office, a steady stream of
well-wishers approached,
many of them turning
away after hearing that
Golden was in one of his
many meetings.
Kicker Matt Bosher,
whose time with the
Hurricanes will end with
the Sun Bowl against
Notre Dame on Dec. 31,
was one of the visitors
who simply decided to
come back later.
"Just wanted to intro-
duce myself," Bosher
said. "It can wait."
Even athletic director

Kirby Hocutt was waiting
outside for a while. A
technician summoned
to get the Internet work-
ing in the office was
whisked right inside.
And immediately out-
side the double doors,
Myrna Schneider, who
has been a secretary for
Miami coaches since the

part of Miami's proud'
football history as any-
one, a confidant for
Saban to Howard
Schnellenberger to Randy
Shannon and every coach
in between. After four
years of saying "Coach
Shannon's office," she
broke that habit quickly,
just as she had after the
seven other coaching
changes in her tenure.
"I almost slipped up,"
Schneider acknowledged.
Schneider took a lot of
messages. A few callers
caught Golden in a
moment when he could
talk, including Miami
Dolphins general manag-

er Jeff Ireland. Their con-
versation lasted a whole
minute, which was
lengthy on this day.

calls about some poten-

briefed on plans for a

ing Friday.
Hectic, yes.
Exciting, absolutely.
"I brought three bags
on the plane and have got
everything I need for
now," Golden said.
"Hopefully my wife will

two. But I'm here. And

Part of his campaigning
for the Miami job includ-
ed him creating a 300-

It's his own how-to

    SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec.
    21) Even if you are in your
    usual convivial and friendly
    mood, if you go to a gathering
    at which someone you dislike is
    present, you might allow it to
    sour your mood.
    CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan.
    19) It's not like you to be
    complacent, yet you might
    allow someone who is jealous
    of you to rain on your parade,
    instead of putting this person in
    his/her place.
    AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb.
    19) It'll be your own fault if
    you discuss an idea about
    which you're an optimist with
    someone who is a known pes-
    simist, and you end up with
    your enthusiasm being consid-
    erably subdued.
    PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20)
    - Make sure you first clear up
    all your old obligations before
    going shopping and assuming
    new debts. It's fun when you're
    spending, but being a spend-
    thrift carries penalties.
    ARIES (March 21-April 19)
    - Even though you know there
    are always two sides to every
    issue, you may only want to see
    your own point of view. Loosen
    TAURUS (April 20-May 20)
    - It won't be a lack of industri-
    ousness on your part that holds
    you back; it'll be creating more
    work by not checking and using
    the wrong materials, tools or
    procedures that gets you.
    GEMINI (May 21-June 20)
    - You're the type of person
    who is gifted with having lots of
    good friends in many different
    circles, so don't attempt to
    impose yourself on a small
    clique where you're not appre-
    CANCER (June 21-July 22)
    - Everyone gets their turn, and
    this could be one of those days
    when the odds are tilted in the
    other guy's favor. Thus, it might
    be wise to avoid competitive
    career encounters.
    LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) If
    you find that you're hearing
    only what you want to hear, and
    making it worse by focusing
    only on the negative statements
    being made, take control and
    reverse that behavior.
    VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
    When you're out shopping,
    be cognizant of your actions
    and try not to allow money to
    slip through your fingers. If you
    aren't attentive of your spend-
    )ing, you're likely to end up
    LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -
    A partnership arrangement isn't
    likely to work out too well, if
    you and your cohort are pulling
    apart instead of working
    together. If you can't find com-
    mon ground, you'll fail.
    SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22)
    Unless you are your usual
    methodical self, you may work
    very hard but in the end pro-
    duce very little. Don't walk
    around in circles.

    In-laws' fights hurt family

    Dear Annie: My two daughters-in-law,
    "Dolly and Cynthia," have been arguing for
    the past nine years. They had a shouting
    match at a grandchild's birthday party and
    last week fought publicly in the church
    parking lot. Dolly lies continually, and
    Cynthia shouts out four-letter words in
    front of the kids. I told Dolly we will not be
    able to do any holiday get-togethers if this
    situation is not resolved. Since
    she is older than Cynthia, I
    wanted her to apologize. She
    promised to do so, but hasn't.
    I despair that this will go
    on forever. I have suggested ot'I
    counseling, but Cynthia has JA
    no interest in fixing this. She\ *i
    doesn't trust Dolly and wants
    nothing to do with her. And
    Dolly has been very cruel to
    Cynthia's 8-year-old daughter, accus-
    ing her of ignoring her 5-year-old
    cousin. I had two Thanksgiving dinners
    and don't want two Christmas celebra-
    tions. The grandchildren do not get to
    spend time together. What's a grandma to
    do? Wish They'd Grow Up
    Dear Wish: We think Cynthia has a tem-
    per, but Dolly is the main culprit not
    because she is older, but because she lies, is
    cruel to an 8-year-old and insists on pro-
    voking her sister-in-law. We think she
    needs professional help. You cannot fix this


    When we looked at this deal yesterday, West led
    the heart king against three no-trump and continued
    the suit. You took the third round (discarding two low
    clubs from the dummy), ran the spade queen, ran the
    spade jack, then played four rounds of diamonds to
    establish nine winners: three spades, one heart, four
    diamonds and one club. West, though, had a stronger
    defense. Since he had no entry, at trick three he
    should have shifted to the club nine.
    Yesterday's readers will remember that North's
    sequence shows a maximum one-level opening with
    five-plus diamonds and four-plus clubs. (With 2-3-4-4
    or 3-2-4-4 distribution, North should rebid two no-
    trump. With 4-1-4-4, he has to lie by rebidding two
    spades or two no-trump; or he can settle for one
    spade and risk partner's passing.) At trick one, it was
    tough for you to anticipate this club switch.
    To get home here, you must play dummy's jack.
    East wins with his queen and returns a diamond, but
    you play four rounds of the suit, endplaying East.
    Note, though, that if you play the club five from the
    board, not the jack, when East wins the trick and
    returns a diamond, you will be stranded in the dummy.
    You can play four rounds of diamonds, but East
    returns a club, putting you back on the board. You
    must play spades and will lose five tricks: one spade,
    two hearts, one diamond and one club.

    without their cooperation, so we urge you
    to stay out of it or you'll risk your relation-
    ship with both of them. Invite everyone for
    family occasions, or let them host separate
    ones. If they fight in your home, ask them
    to leave. If you want the cousins to get
    together, have them come to your house
    without their mothers.
    Dear Annie: I have been married for 25
    years and have come to realize that I am in
    a verbally abusive relationship.
    ,My wife talks down to me, min-
    S imizes my feelings and does
    not make any effort to
    acknowledge things I say. I
    have been in counseling for
    |--- two years and have reached
    the point where I need to leave
    the marriage. But I am hesitant
    to do so because I fear what
    my wife will say about me to
    people in our small commu-
    nity. I am extremely unhap-
    py and don't know how to get out. Please
    help. New York
    Dear N.Y.: You are smart to recognize
    that your wife could make this difficult.
    However, we hope you won't let that deter
    you from doing what is necessary for your
    mental health. Talk to your therapist about
    how best to proceed, and then contact an
    attorney with experience in helping abuse

    Haiti's leading candidate speaks out

    A2'- ( K.\1 Di PK)P,
    Haiti- Supporters of one of
    her competitors in Haiti's
    presidential election set bar-
    ricades on fire and threw
    rubble at cars when initial
    results put him third. The
    No. 2 finisher if _;J his par-
    tisans to mobilize and his
    staff warned they could start
    a war.
    But during the turmoil
    since the preliminary vote
    count, Mirlande Manigat,
    the 70-year-old law profes-
    sor and former first lady in
    first place, has kept her calm
    and stayed in the classroom
    and her stucco-walled
    In an interview with The
    Associated Press on
    Monday, she blamed the dis-
    cord on a "crisis of confi-
    dence" with Haiti's electoral
    She also defended her
    decision not to participate in
    a recount and said she is
    open to power-sharing
    agreements with other par-
    ties as a means of emerging
    from the crisis.
    S\,.. we are in a situa-
    tion which has no relation
    whatsoever either with the
    constitution or to the elec-
    toral law," Manigat said. "I
    would like to see my coun-
    try heading for a true
    democracy, and I am per-
    sonally concerned about the
    whole situation."
    Manigat is not new to the
    dirty business of Haitian
    politics. Her husband, Leslie
    Manigat, was elected in a
    criticized 1988 election
    under a military junta that
    quickly ousted him in a
    coup. She won a Senate seat
    in 2006 but resigned in
    protest when her husband
    was denied a run-off in a
    compromise favoring now-
    President Rene Preval.
    Her supporters clashed
    with U.N. peacekeepers in
    two provincial cities
    between the dysfunctional
    Nov. 28 election and the
    much-critcized Dec. 7
    announcement of results,
    throwing rocks and burning
    tires to demand she be
    declared the winner.
    Since the vote tally the
    crisis has boiled down to a

    Haiti's presidential candidate Mirlande Manigat, a former first lady whose husband
    was deposed by the military in 1988, gestures during an interview with The
    Associated Press in Port-au-Prince, Haiti, Monday.-AP Photo

    fight for second place the
    other spot in a Jan. 16 runoff
    - between Jude Celestin,
    the candidate of Preval's
    party, and Michel Martelly,
    a singer who trails him by
    6,845 votes. Manigat, all but
    assured of going on to the
    next round, has stayed in the
    That changed briefly
    when the provisional elec-
    toral council, or CEP, pro-
    posed creating a commis-
    sion to recount the tally
    sheets. Manigat and
    Martelly declared they were
    opposed; only Celestin
    "Nobody trusts the CEP.
    Nobody in Haiti," Manigat
    said Monday. "I cannot
    accept (the proposal)
    because there is no indica-
    tion about the location, the
    rules, the membership, etc.,
    She was also put off by
    the way she was invited -
    by e-mail received over her
    faulty Internet connection at
    5 a.m.
    "I did not even answer,
    because for me it was a very
    bad way to communicate to
    someone who is a candidate
    or supposedly might
    become the next president of
    Haiti," she said.
    Now the electoral council
    has proposed a second, 72-
    hour appeals period through
    Wednesday in which candi-

    dates can legally contest the
    results. That new window
    was announced late Sunday
    by a coalition of nine interna-
    tional ambassadors as more
    protests were expected.
    Haiti's political stalemate
    comes as it wrestles with
    post-quake reconstruction, a
    cholera epidemic that has
    killed more than 2,100 and
    endemic crises of poverty
    and instability.
    The election cost $29 mil-
    lion including $14 million
    provided by the United
    States and ambassadors
    have told Manigat they are
    not interested in paying for a
    "The Haitians are not
    enjoying a kind of autonomy
    with regard to the present sit-
    uation. It's a matter of rela-
    tion of force: economic
    force, political force," she
    said. "If ever I was president
    of Haiti before that I would
    not find myself in this pres-
    ent situation."
    Manigat's campaign has
    promised gradual change and
    long-term solutions. Her first
    priorities would be dealing
    with the cholera epidemic
    and finding ways to house
    the more than 1 million peo-
    ple still living under tarps and
    tents nearly a year after the
    Seated behind a heavy
    wooden desk in front of a
    Haitian flag, Manigat said

    she believes an agreement
    between her Assembly of
    Progressive National
    Democrats and another party
    would be essential to resolv-
    ing the crisis.

    US to resume

    peace talks in

    Middle East

    U.S. Mideast envoy
    returned to the region on
    Monday, seeking to revive
    troubled peace efforts
    after a major setback in
    which Washington aban-
    doned efforts to coax
    Israel to freeze Jewish set-
    tlement in areas
    Palestinians want for a
    future state.
    The envoy, George
    Mitchell, was expected to
    push the Israelis and
    Palestinians for progress
    on key issues at the heart
    of their conflict. But in a
    reflection of the difficul-
    ties ahead, Mitchell was
    being forced to meet sepa-
    rately with the sides dur-
    ing the two-day visit, and
    expectations for a break-

    through were low.
    The failure to halt
    Israeli settlement con-
    struction has left President
    Barack Obama's signature
    peace effort in embarrass-
    ing limbo.
    But Israeli Prime
    Minister Benjamin
    Netanyahu welcomed the
    U.S. decision, saying
    efforts should instead
    focus on what he called
    the major issues in the
    "To reach peace, (the
    sides) must discuss the
    issues that truly hold up
    peace," he told a business
    conference. "I am glad we
    will begin discussing these
    issues. We will narrow
    gaps, and when these gaps
    are narrowed, we will pro-
    ceed to direct talks whose
    objective will be to reach a
    blueprint for peace."
