Visitation set for slain corrections officer

former colleague, of a Florida
Panhandle corrections officer
slain in a gun battle with an ex-
convict say he was dedicated to
his family and his fellow officers.
A visitation for Col. Greg
Malloy was scheduled Saturday
evening at Walton Senior High
School in Defuniak Springs. His
funeral and burial were set

for today.
Malloy, a K-9 officer with the
corrections department in Holmes
County, died Wednesday when he
and other officers exchanged fire
with Wade Andrew Williams in a
wooded area near Gritney.
Malloy insisted on joining his
men in the hunt for Williams.
which was unusual for an officer
of his rank, said Holmes
Correctional Institution Warden
John Whitfield.

Whitfield said Malloy walked
into his office with his fatigues
under his arm and said. "Boss,
I've got to go with them. This is a
dangerous run and they're my
men and I need to be with them.
We've got to get Williams locked
up before he kills someone else."
\"Normalvl a colonel doesn't
tell the warden what he is going to
do, but that is how strongly he felt
about his responsibility to his
men on that day," Whitfield said.

According to the other K-9
team members. Malloy constantly
cautioned them about staying safe
during their run through the
woods tracking Williams.
Whitfield said.
Authorities in three states had
been searching for Williams, 35,
since his parents were found dead
in their Cottondale home last
The News Herald reported
Saturday that, according to a

complaint affidavit, Williams had
bought ammunition the same day
his parents were found. Police
have not said how the couple

Legislators warn of

deep spending cuts

State Reps. Brad Drake and Marti Coley joined with state Sen. Bill Montford to answer questions from the pub-
lic during a legislative forum at the Jackson County Chamber of Commerce's First Friday Breakfast. Mark

Senateoffice to open in Marianna

Tough decisions, tough times, chal-
lenges these were all words repeat-
edly used by lawmakers Friday mom-
ing during the Jackson County
Chamber of Commerce legislative
Jackson County's three state legis-
lators attended the First Friday
Breakfast' to answer questions. Rep.
Marti Coley, R-Marianna, Rep. Brad
Drake, R-DeFuniak Springs, and Sen.
Bill Montford, D-Tallahassee, each
made opening remarks that had a,
common theme.
"In the upcoming session we have

many challenges," Coley said. "We
are like the rest of the nation, we are
struggling financially, economically."#
Coley said the most important thing
Florida can do is "get government out
of the way so private business can
.prosper." She said that is the primary
focus this session. Her top priority is
to repeal the septic tank law com-
pletely. This statement was met with
loud applause from the packed room
at the agriculture center on Penn
Drake opened by saying "we do
have a lot of challenges." Drake
focused on the large cuts lawmakers
will have to make. "We've had to cut
over $8 billion in the past three years.

Now we're going to have to cut anoth-
er $4 billion" he said.
Drake said four areas make up
almost 100 percent .of the state's
budget: health care, .education, trans-
portation and criminal justice.
Legislators have to find somewhere
to cut $4 billion to $5 billion, he said.
This could mean turning prisoners
loose, or cutting education spending.
"It's not easy," he said. "We've got a
lot of unique challenges."

County's representatives. He" took

Owner of the Court House Coffee Shoppe, Mary Lou
Palmore, spoke before the Marianna City Commission this
week to request help for the parking problem at her down-
town Marianna business. Mark Sinner/Floridan

Another business

asks city for help

Mary Lou Patmore has
been struggling for years to
keep her business going in
downtown Marianna.
Patmore owns the Court
House Coffee Shoppe. She
closed for most of last year,
because the city's roadwork
from the downtown revital-
ization project made it
nearly impossible for cus-
tomers to get to her busi-
ness, she said.
Patmore didn't want to
raise a fuss. But when she
saw a new sign go up
downtown advertising
parking for another down-
town business, it was the
last straw, she said.
Just recently, the city
agreed to buy a parcel of
land near Bistro Palms

restaurant. It also put a sign
up in a public parking area
that identifies the restau-
rant, ,to help with parking.
Patmore said she is
happy for that business. But
as a part of the Main Street
Marianna district, she. feels
like she gets none of the
benefits. Patmore went to
the city commission meet-
ing this week to tell the
commissioners about the
problems she is facing.
After hearing Patmore's
situation, City Manager Jim
Dean said city staff would
arrange to have a meeting
with Patmore and see what
they can do.
Commissioner James
Wise said, "Since she's in
the Main Street district ... I
suggest we help this lady."

Economy headed in right "

direction, adviser says

Those who are looking at job numbers as
an indication that the recession is over will
still have to wait a while.
But things are moving in the right direc-
tion, and the economy is moving ahead "at a
pretty good pace," according to Kate Wame,
an investment strategist with the Edward
Jones research department.
Historically, unemployment always takes a
while to go down after a recession, so .that
isn't a good indicator of the economy, Warne
Warne spoke to a crowd at the Chipola
College Arts Center Wednesday night. Local
Edward Jones financial adviser David Carrel
hosted the event.
Warne discussed the economy and current
market trends. She had a positive message for

the many in attendance who voiced their feel-
ings that even though the recession ended
more than a year ago, it doesn't feel like it's
All of the progress is in the right direction,
and Edward Jones thinks the recovery is sus-
tainable based on historical trends, she said.
She also had positive words about the size
of the United States' deficit and debt.
Looking at last year's numbers, and projec-
tions for 2015, many other countries look as
bad or worse than the U.S.
Canada was in the best position because it
went through the same problems the U.S. is
now facing back in the mid 1990s. Japan has
the worst outlook.
Wane also said that as investors, people
don't need to be so worried about fiscal poli-
cy and debt -,but as taxpayers, they do. Last

Age is just a number, and more than a number

There are some subjects that
we don't talk about much: espe-
cially if we are among the older.
There is a three-letter word that
can cause us to react in many dif-
ferent ways. That word is "age."
Many youngsters want to hurry
up and get older: many old folks
are trying there best to act like
they are still youngsters. Either of
those actions can lead to embar-
When a baby actually has a
heartbeat, shouldn't his or her
time or age begin to be calculat-
ed? Maybe on his or her first
birthday, the child should be con-
sidered one year. plus the months
he or she spent inside the womb
before he or she visibly arrived;
making the celebrated time each
year the date of the probable time

of conception.
or at least in
that neighbor-
hood. Get out
the calculators'.
If our time of
life was deter-
mined from
Thomas conception, all
Vincet of us would be
older than our
Murphy numbers proj-
ect: which
would be good news for
teenagers who can't wait to drive.
and bad news for those older
folks who hate to own up to their
actual age. I feel that too much
fuss is made over that little word
"age." Why can't we just live and
try to enjoy ourselves as much as
possible in a positive way; then.

as our days wind down. thank
God for life. and ease on out of
this mess.
As Christians. shouldn't we be
thinking about eternal life anyway?
This week. I lost someone my
sister. She was a person who made
the room light up when she arrived.
because of her pleasant personality.
With her. age was not a factor. She
was able to communicate smoothly
with everyone, from a child to the
elderly, with ease. Her ability to
make anyone. no matter what
nationality, age or gender feel com-
fortable when she talked to them
was quite a gift.
She was always concerned
about others: and before she
passed, her calm, caring
demeanor was still very visible.
She has given many .,beautiful

memories to our family, and oth-
ers that will never grow old.
In our major sports, such as
football, basketball and baseball.
age becomes a factor when you
reach your early to middle 30s:
and for some sports, even earlier.
Many of our best athletes are
banged up so bad during their
sport careers that after those
careers end. their bodies seem to
be similar to that of a much older
man or woman. In many ways.
it's not necessarily the number of
your years that show your age.
but the way you choose to live
your life.
Some of the oldest looking and
acting people in life are under 30.
They have been involved in nega-
tive situations in their young lives
that have caused deterioration to

their bodies at a rapid pace. The
healthiest people mentally and
physically in life are those who
eat right, exercise, treat others
with respect and have a personal
relationship with God. Eating a
lot of greasy foods, sitting around
feeling sorry for yourself, always
being uptight. and hating on oth-
ers can definitely lead to a shorter
It's not by accident that some
of our positive older citizens are
able to maintain their looks and
youthfulness for many years; and
in some cases throughout their
lives. We all will get older: but the
way each of us chooses to live our
lives is crucial when it comes to
happiness, contentment and
longevity. Remember. life is what
you make it.

"Soldier The Life of
Colin Powell"
By Karen DeYoung

Review by Barbara
Grant, a Jackson County
Public Library volunteer

This book was selected
by its publisher in 2006 as
one of their best books of
the year.
Gen. Colin Powell is a
famous man, admired by
many people in America,
the armed services and the
world. But he is also an
enigmatic personality. How

does an aimless good -kid
from the Bronx become a
world leader? Remember
when both the Democrat
and Republican parties
wanted him to run for pres-

then nlow does he somehow
lose his mastery?
This biography gives one
a clearer understanding of
the man. It brings together
his Jamaican ancestry, his
childhood in the Bronx, his
wife's background (which
is similar to Condoleezza
Rice's), his mentors, his
ambitions, the challenges
he's faced, the mistakes
he's made, and the setbacks
he's faced. But he has
endured. It's an astonishing

When the wealthy consider estate tax planning and
moving large sums out of their estates, they may overlook
the annual gift tax exclusion. Somehow giving away a
mere $13,000 free of gift tax seems minimal-until they
look more carefully.
First, one can give $13,000 a year-or $26,000 as a
couple-to as many individuals as one wants. Give away
$26,000 to each of six grandchildren over a 10-year
period, and $1.56 million is neatly out of the estate, tax-
free! Gift the parents, too, for further tax savings. Other
options: funding a 529 plan five years in advance. (One
caveat: if the donor dies during that time, the gift reverts
to his or her estate.)
For someone whose estate is subject to a 45-percent
tax bite, each $13,000 given away can save $5,520 in
estate taxes. Ten years of the generous gifts described
above would save Grandma & Grandpa-or- their

Health care fight as water torture

' "We think this is just the
beginning," Senate Minority
Leader Mitch McConnell said
Wednesday after the Senate
failed, as expected, to repeal
the health care law. "This issue
is still ahead of us and we will
be going back at it in a variety
of different ways."
The Republican approach to
going back at President
Obama's landmark legislation
- the Affordable Care Act -
is starting to feel like the polit-
ical equivalent of water torture.
Drip, baby, drip.
In the Senate, Democrats are
in control, but Republicans
have the numbers and the unity
to run the table. All 47
Republicans and not one
Democrat voted to repeal the
law. The GOP attacks on
"ObamaCare" aim to please
voters who dislike the law on
general principle.
But what if Democrats
reframed the debate to vote on
the law's specific provisions
that are already in place?
Would we see real profiles in
Which Republicans would
go on the record against allow-
ing children under 26 to stay
on their parents' health insur-
ance? Or in favor of reinstating

the lifetime cap on insurance
benefits? How about allowing
insurers once again to discrim-
inate against children with pre-
existing medical conditions -
yes or no? And who will just
say no to seniors currently get-
ting a break on their prescrip-
tion drug costs?
Few elected officials of
either party vote for their own
political suicide. But when
someone votes to repeal the
Affordable Care Act, he or she
is saying yes to eliminating
every one of those popular pro-
Proponents of health reform
structured the law so that the
carrots kicked in last year
while the stick of the so-called
"individual mandate" doesn't
appear until 2014. Democrats
and Obama reasoned that
Americans will like the bene-
fits and won't want to go back.
That proposition will be tested
in 2012.
For now, Republican critics
are getting a free ride. They
can vote to repeal
"ObamaCare," say they'll
replace it (sometime) and
imply that a future law will
contain everything people like.
They're saying: Trust us.
At the same time, Democrats
are in a bind. Majority Leader
Harry Reid, who had vowed

not to allow a vote on repeal,
capitulated. He didn't want a
determined minority to grid-
lock the Senate.
U.S. District Judge Roger
Vinson's sweeping opinion
from Pensacola, Fla., last
Monday energized
Republicans. Vinson declared
not only that Congress had
overreached its constitutional
authority in requiring most
Americans buy health insur-
ance or pay a fee, but that the
entire law was void.
While the case moves
toward the Supreme Court,
Republicans are looking for
ways to gut the law or cut off
money to implement it.
Senators Lindsey Graham,
R-S.C., and John Barrasso, R-
Wyo., introduced a bill that
would allow states to opt-out
of various provisions, includ-
ing the requirements that indi-
viduals buy insurance and that
employers provide it. Their
idea is to bleed health reform
dry by a thousand cuts.
Republicans also may try to
use the continuing, resolution
that pays for government oper-
ations to slow implementation.
Democrats and Republicans
in the Senate did agree to
revoke one part of the law.
They voted overwhelmingly to
strike a requirement that busi-

nesses file a 1099 tax form
when they pay a vendor more
than $600 a year. Small busi-
nesses had strenuously object-
ed to the provision, and
Obama had signaled this was
an area for bipartisan compro-
mise. The measure now goes
to the House.
Interestingly, the 81 to 17
Senate vote shows how easily
fiscal discipline can be bent.
Everybody says the federal
deficit is a serious problem and
hard choices must be made. In
fact, one of the main
Republican arguments against
the health law is that it increas-
es the deficit; Democrats, how-
ever, cite other numbers that
show the law will reduce the
The 1099 requirement would
have brought in an estimated
$19 billion in tax revenue over
10 years to pay for the health
law. In its 1099 repeal amend-
ment, the Senate did not speci-
fy how to make up the lost rev-
enue, just that appropriated but
unspent funds will be tapped.
In this era of political water
torture, it probably won't be
long before the same
Republicans who voted to
repeal the 1099 requirement
complain about the higher cost
of the health law.
Drip, baby, drip.

Today's GOP lives in Reagan's world


On May 2, Republicans will
gather at the Reagan Library
in Santa Barbara, Calif., for
the first GOP presidential
debate of the 2012 campaign.
It's not clear which candidates
will be there, but here's a safe
bet: Each will declare himself,
or herself, a Reagan
Such is the hold of Ronald
Reagan on the Republican
Party that it is simply impossi-
ble to imagine a' candidate not
reaching for the Reagan man-
tle. And such is the hold of
Reagan on our politics as a
whole that, on the eye of the
State of the Union, President
Obama felt compelled to
praise Reagan's leadership
and "unique ability to inspire
others to greatness."
Just 15 years ago, Obama
condemned what he called the
"dirty deeds" of "Reagan and
his minions" not an unusu-
al opinion among Democrats.
Now, the political world as a
whole is coming to recognize,
at least a bit, the greatness in
Reagan that Republicans have
admired for more than a gen-
One reason for Reagan's
evolving image is that we
know much more about him
than just a few years ago.
"There's been a stunning
change in the view of Reagan
since 2000," says Annelise

Anderson, who with her hus-
band, Martin both former
Reagan aides has done pio-
neering research in the
Reagan archives. "The publi-
cation of his radio commen-
taries, letters from throughout
his life, and the minutes of his
National Security Council
meetings we see the extent
to which he was formulating
strategy and defining, direct-
ing and pursuing his objec-
Reagan was indeed the
sunny public presence of
memory, but the Andersons'
books "Reagan: In His
Own Hand," "Reagan: A Life
in Letters" and "Reagan's
Secret War" show how his
accomplishments were the
result of a lifetime spent
studying, thinking, writing
and preparing for leadership.
The newly released papers
show how Reagan mixed his
personal qualities an
unmatched determination,
desire to learn and optimism
- with a deep belief in liber-.
ty, free enterprise and
American exceptionalism.
Together, they formed the
foundation for specific poli-
cies lower taxes and strong
defense that changed the
United States and the world.
For today's Republicans,
the problem is that it's easier
to talk about lower taxes and
strong defense than it is to
guess what Reagan would do

were he alive now. What
would he do about health
care, the deficit, immigration
and terrorism? Even his old
confidants can't say for sure.
That uncertainty is one rea-
son we see so much yearning
among Republicans for anoth-
er Reagan. "I'm always asked,
'When will we see somebody
like Reagan again?'" said
Peter Hannaford, a longtime
Reagan aide and author of
"Recollections of Reagan."
"My answer is 'never.' He
was sui generis. Someday,
you'll have somebody with
some of his qualities and with
that bigger-than-life aspect -
but not yet."
Meanwhile, Republicans are
very much living in Reagan's
party. For Craig Shirley, the
longtime conservative activist
and author of "Rendezvous
with Destiny: Ronald Reagan
and the Campaign That
Changed America," today's
GOP still reflects the man
who was elected president
more than 30 years ago. Back
then, so-called "country-club
Republicans" were a powerful
force in the party. "All these
Republicans considered con-
servatism the province of
Neanderthals," recalls Shirley,
who is a consultant to The
Examiner. Now, it's the mod-
erates who are virtually
extinct. The result. Shirley
believes, is "a more vigorous

debate and a more honest
choice for the American
Starting soon, state and
county Republican parties will
be holding their yearly
Lincoln Day dinners, the way
Democrats hold Jefferson-
Jackson Day dinners. In
recent years, many of those
GOP events have become
Lincoln-Reagan Day dinners,
or just Reagan Day dinners.
That trend will likely continue
as the party seeks an even
closer identification with past
And Republican politicians
will continue to seek that elu-
sive mix of attributes that
made Reagan Reagan.
Perhaps there is another great
leader out there right now, and
we don't know it. After all, no
one knew what Reagan would
accomplish until he moved
into the Oval Office.
So on May 2, the GOP can-
didates a group that could
include Mitt Romney, Mike
Huckabee, Tim Pawlenty,
Newt Gingrich, Haley
Barbour, John Thune, Mitch
Daniels, Sarah Palin and oth-
ers will take the stage at
the Reagan Library and try to
convince Republicans that
they are worthy heirs to
Ronald Reagan. The audience
will undoubtedly be skeptical,
but inwardly hoping that at
least one of them will be

Assistant Public
Defender Ines Suber told

and won't prove "beyond a

Hilton killed Dunlap.
Cappleman said Dunlap
had gone to the National
Forest planning to read a
book and later meet a
friend when she disap-
peared on Dec. 1, 2007.
"But this man, Mr.
Hilton. as the evidence will

Hilton held Dunlap captive

Broken during a struggle.

Microscopic evidence
will show Hilton's double-
bladed bayonet was used to
puncture a tire on the vic-
tim's car, Cappleman said.
She said Dunlap's blood
was found on a sleeping
bag and her DNA on a pair
of hiking boots that Hilton
tried to get rid of in trash
bins at two Georgia con-
venience stores.
A charred human skull
and hand bones were
recovered from a burn pit
on one of Hilton's camp-
sites near where the rest of
her remains had been
found, Cappleman said.
She said a cigarette butt
with Hilton's DNA on it
was found at the campsite.
The state will be unable
to establish if the beads are
the same, Suber told jurors.
She also said police did not
find them during an initial
search of the car nor when
they later vacuumed it
while looking for evidence
before Hilton was arrested.
"And lo and behold when
plastic beads become
important to the case and
the investigation, plastic
beads are all of a sudden
found in the car," 'Suber
She also said a medical
examiner was unable to
determine a cause of death
and an anthropologist
could not tell if the skull
and hands found in the fire
pit were male or female.
Just before opening
statements, Circuit Judge
Circuit Judge James
Hankinson denied Suber's
request for a one month
delay in the trial. She said
she has not yet been able to
interview all of about 200
potential witnesses and a
defense expert has not yet
had a chance to review a
300-page sworn statement.
The trial been scheduled
for last June, but it was
continued due to Suber's
heavy caseload.
Hankinson also refused
her request to strike the
jury because two jurors
knew about the Georgia
and North Carolina cases.
Emerson vanished on
New Year's Day 2008
while hiking on the
Appalachian Trail. Hilton
was arrested at a north
Georgia convenience store
where he tried to dispose of
Dunlap's boots,
Cappleman said. He was
charged initially with kid-
napping Emerson, whose
remains were found later.
Authorities suspect
Hilton may be connected to
the deaths an elderly cou-
ple, John and Irene Bryant,
who disappeared on a hike
in North Carolina's Pisgah
National Forest in October
2007, and of 27-year-old
Michael Scot Louis, who
vanished a month later in
Ormond Beach, Fla. Louis
also was decapitated.
Hilton has not been
charged in those cases.

Nasdaq hackers target Health care fraud: Not a

service for corporate boards faceless crime any longer

NEW YORK The company that runs
the Nasdaq stock market said Saturday that
hackers had penetrated a service that han-
dles confidential communications between
public companies and their boards.
The service run by Nasdaq OMX Group
Inc. carries strategic information for about
300 companies. The company said it
appears no customer data was compro-
Nasdaq OMX said the hacking attempts
did not affect its trading systems. Nasdaq
is the largest electronic securities trading
market in the U.S. with more than 2,800
listed companies.
The targeted application, Directors
Desk, is designed to make it easier for
companies to share documents with direc-
tors between scheduled board meetings. It
also allows online discussions and Web
conferencing within a board.
Since board directors have access to
information at the highest level of a com-
pany, penetrating the service could be of
great value for insider trading. The appli-
cation's Web page says "Directors Desk
provides multiple layers of security to pro-
tect our clients' most vital corporate
A federal official tells The Associated

Press that the hackers broke into the sys*-
tems repeatedly over more than a )ear.
Investigators are trying to identify the
hackers, the official said. The motive is
The official spoke on condition of
anonymity because the inquiry by the FBI
and Secret Service is continuing.
Nasdaq OMX spokesman Frank
DeMaria said the Justice Department
requested that the company keep silent
about the intrusion until at least Feb. 14.
However, The Wall Street Journal reported
the investigation on its website late Friday,
prompting Nasdaq to issue a statement and
notify its customers.
DeMaria said Nasdaq OMX detected
"suspicious files" during a regular security
scan on U.S. servers unrelated to its trad-
ing systems and determined that Directors
Desk was potentially affected. It pulled in
forensic firms and federal law enforcement
for an investigation, but found no evidence
that -any customer information was
accessed by hackers.
Nasdaq acquired the company behind
Directors Desk in 2007.
In 1999, hackers infiltrated the websites
of Nasdaq and the American Stock
Exchange leaving taunting messages, but
Nasdaq officials said then that there was
no evidence the break-ins affected finan-
cial data.

Chicago residents call

dibss' on dug-out parking

CHICAGO A blizzard that dumped
nearly 2 feet of snow has revived a long-
standing Chicago tradition: Break out the
patio furniture. Or, if none is available, suit-
cases, garbage cans, strollers, bar stools and
milk crates work, too.
All these items are frequently used by
Chicago residents in a time-honored yet con-
troversial system of preserving parking spots,
known as dibss."
In an urban version of wild animals mark-
ing their territory, residents use chairs and
other objects to tell anyone who passes that
someone has taken the trouble to dig out
enough snow to park a car and that person
expects the spot to remain available when the
vehicle returns.
"It is an unwritten rule of etiquette," attor-
ney Chris Sheaffer, 34, said as he was about
to place a bright blue folding chair on a spot
he'd dug in front of his North Side home.
"And you bear the consequences if you break
Actually, the city has an ordinance cover-
ing dibs, and it's illegal.
But one look at block after block lined with
markers ranging from a simple cardboard box
to elaborate barricades of chairs, ropes and
bright ribbons, and it's clear the law gets the
same kind of compliance in Chicago that
Prohibition once did.
The practice is so ingrained in the fabric of
the city that almost immediately after the
blizzard ended, the candidates running for
mayor were asked where they stood on the
practice. Three told the Chicago Sun-Times
they were in favor of dibss," while one was
noncommittal. The retiring Mayor Richard
Daley dances around the issue; but he has

made no secret of his sympathy for people
who spend time digging snow only to lose
their parking spots to someone else.
Even the city's top police officer sympa-
thizes with those who do it.
"Think about it, you spend a couple hours
clearing a spot and somebody from another
block takes it?" Superintendent Jody Weis
said Friday.
While dibss" has caused fights and
inspired. vandalism in the past, things have
been relatively quiet this year, Weis said.
People still seem to be in a help-thy-neighbor
mode after one of the biggest blizzards in
Chicago history, he said.
In the neighborhoods, residents said they
expect drivers looking for a parking spot to
follow the law of the street.


Health care fraud once was
a faceless crime. Now it has

Facing time in federal
prison, Nwafor disappeared
before his sentencing.

City's first black mayor recalls triumphs, struggles

F l O HIDt A 5 : .r Vw : -:: .. ,

Elmore Bryant.
Marianna's first black
mayor in 1985. was presi-
dent of the local NAACP
chapter for many years. and
for a long time was the only
black mayor in the
Panhandle of Florida,
excluding the predominant-
ly black city of Quincy.
He talked recently about
some of the changes he
helped effect. It wasn't
always easy going.
He ran unsuccessfully for
a city commission seat
twice under the at-large
voting system that existed
at the time.
He started hearing of the
single-member district
drive in other areas of the
country, and began a class
action suit against'the city
in an effort to change the
voting system.
In the meantime, he was
appointed to the city com-
mission on the resignation
of another member. The
lawsuit continued, but the
.city, county and school
board ultimately decided
not to fight the change.
Bryant said the court deci-
sion, awarded by default,
became a landmark deci-
sion often cited in subse-
quent court battles else-
"Jackson County became
well recognized for that,
because a lot of communi-
ties fought it down to the
last," Bryant said. "We
drew the district lines while
-I was on the city commis-
sion, we rewrote things, we
changed ordinances, and
fellow board members
appointed me mayor in my
first term. I appointed com-
mittees, and we made some
Bryant cast the deciding
vote in bringing Winn Dixie
to, town and with it, jobs.
"I broke the tie," he said.
"There was some resist-
ance, I think from existing
Bryant said that, during
his seven years on the com-
mission, the city paved 31
streets, in part to satisfy
some of the attendant com-
plaints in the old class
action suits.
Bryant said he had a lot
of surprising, if quiet, sup-
port as he served on the
commission. He remem-
bers the time he fought,
successfully, for the city of
Marianna to buy out the
utilities delivery system

from its private provider.
"I'd sit on the porch with
these elderly white ladies.
and they'd say. "Son. I'm
praying for you.' It might
be in a whisper, and they
might not want me to
broadcast it, but they were
with me. It was really
something," he said. "I had
my mirrors knocked off my
vehicle once, but I also had
some good support in all
sectors. A lot of folks came
to back me up on some
issues at times."
Bryant was on board
when the city decided to
bequeath a large tract of
land to the federal govern-
ment so that the Federal
Correctional Institution
could be brought to
"That was a big day for
Jackson County," Bryant
said. "It was the largest
land donation the city had
ever given at that time, and
it brought a lot of good,
long-term jobs. A lot of the
kids that I'd taught at
Marianna High School,
Cottondale and elsewhere
moved into those jobs. I
worked with a committee to
ensure that the prison came
here. As mayor, I signed the
deed, and I don't think the
city has ever been sorry."
Bryant also led a drive to
hire black police officers.
"We started to make a
real effort to hire fairly," he
said. "I started trying to
make positive charges from
the start. We also got better
pay for officers, and we
walked the halls finding out
what grants were avail-*
Bryant said that the city's
decision not to fight the
class action suit worked in
its favor in ways no one had
"We were in trouble as
far as grant awards were
concerned, because we had
received money that had
just sat unused. They didn't
look favorably on that, and
we were trying to restore
our reputation," he said.
"When the city decided not
to fight the class action any
further, the government
started saying they were
going to see that our name
was front and center in the
grant process. Before that,'
we were pretty much off the
list because of our previous
inaction on the ones we had
Bryant said the commu-
nity came around as the city
began to advance.
"When people saw what

to serve blacks in the 1960s. They picketed others that did not employ blacks. This is

we were trying to do, you
couldn't ask for better sup-
port," he said.
Bryant was an educator
most of his life, and owned
a business that only recent-
ly closed.
As a private citizen, he
helped fund Habitat for
Humanity, which has built
homes -for dozens of fami-
lies since it began.
"Janet Harnes, Peggy and
Bob Sanford and I went to
Americus, Ga. to check out
the program," he recalled.
"We'd gone up there in my
motor home. On the way
back, Peggy and Bob and
Janet wrote up the founding
papers. That first year, sup-
port from black and white
was pouring it. When
you're trying to do what's
right, people join in and
help you."

Bryant subsequently
founded another housing
assistance program in
Jackson County.
In his life as an educator
and a businessperson,
Bryant said he has seen
many good people who
have changed the world for
the better. The days of
integration were made
smoother, he said, due to
the efforts of those people.
He named a few off the top
of his head, but said there
were many others.
Queen Brown was a. great
motivator of students and
fellow teachers. She also
worked tirelessly on com-
munity enhancement proj-
ects, he said, including a
successful push to have the
railroads improve the trestle
over Borden Street.
Vivian Koonce was a

math wizard who could get
through to students no one
else could reach.
Irma Swilley was a
teacher who endured much,
but persevered to teach her
math and science classes in
difficult times.
Frances Menchion was
an excellent special educa-
tion teacher who had a real
understanding of student
Bryant also recalled other
milestones in integration
efforts, in which he had a
key role as a fresh young
college graduate.
"When integration settled
down, I think that happened
because we had nurturing
hands in the educational
community and the stu-
dents, black and white, felt
that," he said. "You've got
to look out for the kids,

with nurturing that's not in
Church leaders also
helped in the transition, he
"People stood up for
what's right, and although
we were a small NAACP
chapter, we were a power-
ful one: we got attention
from larger groups because
of the things we could
accomplish." he said. "It's
about working together.
There are a lot of people I
look up. to from the civil
rights struggles here, even
though I wasn't here at its
peak in the early 1960s."
At that time. students
marched on Lafayette
Street in protest of segre-
gated dining, and at other
businesses, and made other
efforts to assert their civil
Carol "Cookie" Marks
was here for that era, and
she gave an account of
activities during the 1960s.
"The NAACP of Jackson
County was the organiza-
tion that focused on injus-
tice in the early 1960s with
Mr. Gye Long as its presi-
dent," Marks wrote. "The
youth council of the branch
was one of the most active
groups in the state of
Florida, under such presi-
dents as Dr. Arthur James
Jones, Dr. Rev. "Pie"
McElroy, Earnest Williams,
Llewellyn Swilley,
Corinthian Whites and oth-
ers through marches, sit-ins
and other means..
"This led the way for the
first year of integration in
1965. There were seven
who were seniors: Annie
Jones, Willola Borders,
Aaron Granberry, Carol
'Cookie' Marks, Willie
Pittman, Gloria Linda
Speights and Clara Sue
Pender. All graduated the
first year 1966 (even
though National Honor
Society status was lost).
Additionally, there were
three males who were
enrolled at Chipola Junior
College in 1965. Harold
Stephens, Aldric Borders
and a young man from
Vernon ... This changed
situations and circum-
stances in Jackson County
in some ways positively
and others negatively."
Marks, a self-described
50-year civil rights activist
with an emphasis on youth,
said she thinks there's still
more work to be done.
"Injustice is still alive
and well as I see it and saw
it," she said.

Among his most treasured pos-
sessions are the artifacts of his

on Barnes Street.
People brought their cows. hogs
and other livestock to him for
preparation as fooxl.
If they couldn't stomach the

Kelly has the rifle, along with the
"single tree" hardwood implement
his grandfather used to assist him in
the butchering process.
He also has a collection of knives
Davis used to carve out the various
cuts of meat. and the sharpening
rocks and rods he used.
The butcher shop is long gone,
but Kelly's memories of his grand-
father's business are vivid. He
helped in the processing at times,
and said the experience helped
shape his work ethic.
It also helped him prepare to take
over his own father's shoeshine
Kelly's father, Charlie "Buy"
Davis, established the West End
Shoeshoe Shop in 1941. Located
on Orange Street, it is now operated
by Kelly under the name Buy's
Shoeshine Shop.
Kelly worked with his father in
the shop from the age of nine until
he signed on for a 23-year career in
the military. He took over the busi-
ness in 1999, working it as he could
while maintaining a full-time job.
Kelly has recently left that job,
and said he will devote more time
to fully renewing the shoeshine
He said it provided him pocket
change all through his youth a
fact he was delighted to remind cer-
tain other youngsters of, when they
tried to tease him about being in a
line of work stereotyped with a
negative image for many years.
Kelly tries to involve young peo-
ple as apprentices in the business,

which he believes can thrive in a
community with professionals. and
so many correctional officers who
need to keep their shoes maintained
to a mirror finish.
He believes involving young
people in the business can help
them grow into successful business
owners themselves.
In looking back at the rich histo-
ry of black entrepreneurship in
Jackson County. he said he is dis-
mayed at the low number of black-
owned businesses these days.
He listed a diverse string of them
which thrived in the 1950s. 1960s
and much earlier.
Down by the railroad tracks, a
club called the California Hotel
provided entertainment. Cab
Calloway used to play there for the
soldiers during World War II. he
Next to the California sat Eddie
Washington's Sewing and
Alterations Shop.
Across from it, Willie Pender's
Barber Shop and Sweet Shop
thrived for more than 40 years.
On Andrews Street, Yank
Speights had an auto mechanic
shop. White's Beauty School was
next to it.
Mildred's Cafe was in the same
area, along with Minnie's Beauty
Salon, and Dave Pressley's shoe
repair shop.
Coming up from Mildred's cafe,
there was Dave Pressley's Shoe
(Repair) Shop.
Leo Washington's Dry Cleaners
was down the street. The Friendly

Up from that, there was another
shoe repair shop, owned by Bob
Summerwell, and West End
Vann's Funeral Home, still in
business, was up the street.
James "Big Buddy" Long oper-
ated Long's Grocery Store at the
comer of St. Andrews and Orange
streets. It was a hub of the commu-
nity. Long sold canned goods,
meats, snacks, drinks, bread,
matches, tools, kerosene, gasoline

Mark Skinner/Floridan
His niece. Callie M. Long
Thomas. recalled that her uncle
gave freely of what he had to his
young relatives who didn't have
money to buy his wares. Years later.,
when they went off to college, he
made sure to fill a box with food for
them to take back to school at the
end of a visit home.
Several businesses thrived on
Orange Street, Kelly recalled.
Long would go into business on
that street, too, with a fast food
restaurant serving hamburgers, hot-
dogs, milkshakes and more.
Business dwindled only after fast
food chains arrived. His Tasty
Freeze building, which became the
Kickin' Chicken, still stands, but is
now closed.
He also had a package store and
was one of the most prominent
businessmen of his day.
McClane's Funeral Home, now
an outreach clothes closet, was
located there.
Down from that, People's
Funeral Home also thrived, and
continues today.
Also on that street was Bryant's
Enterprises BP station, recently
closed after many years of owner-
ship by long-time Jackson County
NAACP President Elmore Bryant.
Before he took over, the 1950s
building was once home to
Johnny's Gulf Station.
Arthur Graham owned Graham's

Dr. Spires achieved many 'firsts' in office


Dr. Willie Spires was the first,
African-American elected to coun-
ty office.
The District 1 county commis-
sioner, Spires was first elected in
1992 and is currently serving his
fifth consecutive term.
He said he didn't really think of
setting that precedent when he
decided to run, but acknowledged
the practical and symbolic signifi-
cance of his presence on the com-
"It wasn't part of my decision,
but my personal opinion is that all
boards should reflect the demo-
graphics of the community," he
Once he was elected, Spires set
out to help correct something he
saw as a major problem.
"One concern I had was that
basically, during this time, there
was no funding allocated for recre-
ation for county youngsters. The
city of Marianna had the MERE

complex, but parents of children
who didn't live in the city limits had
to pay to play there because the
county wasn't contributing, any
money for the upkeep," Spires said.
"For low-income families, many of
which were minority families, there
was no money for extras like this.
One of my motivations when I was
elected into office was to see the
county contributing funds. That's
happening now, and it has increased
the participation of African
American children and other low-
income or minority families."
Spires said he tries to follow a
personal guideline in his role as a
commissioner, one he thinks has
earned him continued and growing
support as he sought multiple
"My philosophy is to provide
representation to the community,
not just within the district lines or
along lines of race. I won with 66
percent of the vote in my first elec-
tion; that means I received votes
from all segments of the popula-
tion. I can truly say that I have actu-

ally enjoyed diverse support."
Spires has also achieved a first in
his professional career.
A psychology professor at
Chipola College since 1987, in
2002 Spires became the first
African American to be appointed
as a division head at the school, a
position referred to as dean in many
institutions of higher learning. A
graduate of Chipola himself, he
continues to serve as division head
of Social and Behavioral Sciences.
He was working toward his PhD
when appointed to the post, and
earned it in 2004.
Spires' achievements at Chipola
haven't gone unnoticed by the other
schools where he earned his
Troy State University recognized
him as an outstanding alumnus in
In 1993, he was named among
the outstanding black alumni at the
University of West Florida.
And his students have bestowed
multiple honors on him since he
began teaching at Chipola. They

elected him Teacher

Association present-
ed him with its Distinguished
Service Award for Administrators.
He was selected as club advisor
for the Chipola College Black
Student Union in 1990, and contin-
ues to carry out that role.
Spires said he appreciates the
examples that adults provided as he
was growing up, and is glad if he
can pass on some inspiration to oth-
ers himself now that he is in his
mature years.
The product of a segregated ele-
mentary and high school system in
Jackson County, Spires said his
teachers provided plenty of motiva-
tion and encouragement.
"Some of the things that stand
out in my mind are the admonitions
to strive to be the best you can be, at

whatever profession you wish -to
pursue," Spires said. "There was
very strong encouragement to
believe in yourself, and to be mind-
ful of the fact that there are less for-
tunate people in the world who
need your help. This was taught in
my community as well as the
schools. There was an understand-
ing that you were to be fair and
morally upstanding, that you were
to become all you could be."
Spires said he hopes his life
stands as an example to young peo-
"I think, .I hope, it has tremen-
dous impact in that it gives young-
sters in minority populations 'an
opportunity to see that their goals
are achievable. I think it's important
to inspire them and that my role is
not only to influence African
American young people, but to be a
role model for all students," he said.
"I want to make a positive differ-
ence in the lives of all students. If in
my professional life and on the
county commission I can do that,
I'm happy."

Books outline depth of black history in Jackson County

F .;:.-. : S: FWs? .

Queen Brown. Sarah Pender.
Judge Roy Roulhac. Lucy
Hawthorne. Barbara Dixon and
several other black community
leaders have put together three vol-
umes of work devoted to local
black history.
Brown has also written an auto-
biography with many historical
The Gilmore Academy/Jackson
County Training School Alumni
Association spent more than a year
gathering photographs and infor-
mation for the first "Black
America Series: Jackson County
Florida." Published in 2000, it is a
must-have volume for the library
of any serious collector of county
Its photos and documents date as
far back as the slavery era, through
the Civil War, the Civil Rights
movement of the 1960s, and into
more recent times.
It touches on family, church,
business and other areas. The
descendants of many long-estab-
lished black families will find ref-
erences to a relative or friend of the
family in its pages.
When the book came out, Leon
Kelly started taking his copy
around to many of the people
depicted in the book, gathering
autographs. He continues to add
signatures when possible. The
book, he said, is a treasure made
even more valuable by having the

love that took the committee mem-
bers all over the county.
"Different people were assigned
to collect the various pictures, and
Judge Roulhac was the president
of the Association he did the
history that anchors the book. I had
a lot of pictures, but we went many
places collecting others throughout
the county. It was an experience,
and I really gained an appreciation
for authors through this process."
The effort was worth it, she said.
"It was- a lot of work, but it was
important work. We were able to
preserve some of the history of
blacks for the younger generation
which was not aware of so many
things; all the entrepreneurs that
we had right here in Jackson
County, all the old schools, the
leadership that brought us where
we are today," she said. "You can-

not measure where you re nowv
without seeing the path you trav-
eled getting there."
Pender said it was through this
project that she first saw a picture
of her great-grandfather. His name
was Anderson Baker.
"He was a slave, and went to
school when he was a very mature
adult to get his basic education
after slavery was abolished."
Pender said. "Judge Roulhac was
often in Washington. and he visited
the Library of Congress to get
whatever pictures he could find of
Jackson County. Whatever he
found, he sent to me. When I
received that picture (of my great-
grandfather) it was about 9 p.m.
when I opened the package and
found it. I called my mother right
away and told her I had something
I wanted her to look at. When I
showed it to her, she said that was
the first picture she'd ever seen of
her grandfather.
"That meant a lot to me and my
family, and I hope that our book
had that kind of meaning for oth-
ers. It preserves the old pictures:
they'll be here now, for future gen-
Pictures and captions make up
the bulk of this volume, which
stands as an intimate portrait of the
county's past.

book. "My Journey."
Although intensely personal, it
references many places. events and
stories of general interest. Brown,
now retired, was a Jackson County
educator and continues to be a.
leader in the community. Her full
name is Queen Esther Bowers

Esther of the Bible. She said she is
proud to have been so named, and
strives to be the kind of leader in

Union Grove was one of county's earliest black schools


"Wisdom is the principle thing.
Therefore get the wisdom. But in
all their getting, get understanding."
- a frequent Bible-based quote
from long-time Union Grove prin-
cipal L.L. Hawthorne
Union Grove School in Jackson
County is closed now. But in its
prime, it played a pivotal role in
black history in the county.
It's effects on the lives it touched
are still felt today, and devoted
alumni want to make sure it will
have an impact on the future.
It graduated many students who
went on to become teachers, doc-
tors, lawyers, and pharmacists, as
well as other professional fields.
Others settled into different kinds
of jobs, opened businesses or stud-
ied to become experts in their cho-
seh occupations.
Whatever field of work they
chose, students of Union Grove
remember their school as a place
that prepared them for the futures
they would choose.
Many who have long since
moved away still come back home
to pay homage to their old school
every five years.
The last reunion was in 2006; the
next is coming up in August of this
year. Events are scheduled for
Friday, Aug. 26, through that
Friday will feature a fish fry at
Citizens Lodge in Marianna at 5
p.m. At 11 a.m. on Saturday, a pic-
nic will be held at Citizens Lodge.
On Saturday night, a banquet
will be held at the agriculture center
on Penn Avenue at 6 p.m.
On Sunday, the reunion moves to
Mt. Tabor Missionary Baptist
Church, where attendees will par-
ticipate in services at 11 a.m.,
which follows the morning Sunday
school program.
And as the alumni pay homage to
their history, they make sure they
do something to ensure a bright
future for the youngsters of today.
Since the reunions began in
1996, the reunion committee has
bestowed 11 scholarships on
Jackson County students with ties
to Union Grove. The money goes

into a special scholarship fund at
Chipola each year to pay for tuition
and books.
To raise the money, the alumni
sell advertisements in a reunion
booklet, and through the sale of
reunion-related items such as cof-
fee mugs, T-shirts and caps.
Reunion chairperson Bettye
Worlds-Dickens said good teachers
made all the difference in the lives
of students.
"They didn't play," she said.
"The teacher was the boss, and par-
ents cooperated with them. I would
put it right at number one in terms
of its importance to my personal
history and in terms of local black
"The teachers prepared their stu-
dents for the future, and they may
sure we had activities beyond the
curriculum to help us become well-
rounded people. We had plays, glee
club, sports, everything the other
schools had. The Union Grove
Mighty Rockets basketball teams
were frequent victors on the court."
The Union Grove seniors had a
tradition of giving back. Each grad-
uating class did something lasting
for the school.
The 1965 graduating class suc-
cessfully campaigned for the even-
tual addition of a lunchroom;
before that, students had to bring
their own lunches or buy from a
limited selection of canteen snacks.
William Edward Worlds remem-
bers that the class of 1968 or 1969
created a monument for the front of
the school. He drew a picture from
his recollection, and shared it with
the Floridan. The rocket atop the

monument was made of sheet
metal. Its body was blue, its fins
yellow to represent school colors,
Worlds recalled.
Worlds has also penned an exten-
sive memoir of his days at Union

It was one of many schools
important in local history. In the
days before adequate public educa-

In a local history volume, "The
Legacy: African Americans of
Jackson County, Florida," some of
the known schools were listed, with
some history for each.
In 1932, the first county-built
school for African Americans in
Graceville was established. One
teacher was assigned for grades one
through eight, and each student had
to bring a box or straight chair to sit
on. There were no desks. After a
few years, parents had desks built,
and Iven Reed is credited with
doing this work. It is likely he
donated most of his time, labor and
skills, but parents gave what they
could. They also contributed nick-

els and dimes to buy wood for the
potbelly stove that warmed their
children at school in winter.
For many years, black parents
make arrangements as they could to
get their children to school.
The first county-issue bus for
black students was provided in
1949. It ran a route to schools in
Gilmore Academy-Jackson
County Training School was estab-
lished in 1922 and was closed in
1970. It was one of Jackson
County's first African-American
high schools. Founded by Robert T.
Gilmore, it was situated on a three-
acre site purchased in 1907 by
Marianna's African-American
community trustees, according to
the Florida Heritage Landmark
erected at the school site.
Construction of the two-story,
six-teacher school was funded in
part by the Rosenwald Fund. The
fund was created by philanthropist
Julius Rosenwald and educator
Booker T. Washington. After the
first class graduated from Gilmore
Academy in 1931, the school was
renamed Jackson County Training
School. As enrollment grew, the
lower grades moved to the nearby
Baptist Academy.
In 1952, the county built an ele-
mentary school on South Street. A
high school was built on the same
site in 1956, and Gilmore Academy
was closed. In 1970, Jackson
County Training School became
Marianna Middle School, an inte-
grated institution.
Little Zion Community School
was located north of Sneads in what
was described as a "brush arbor"
community called Little Zion. The
school's year of origin is disputed,
but deeds show that 39 acres for the
school were purchased in 1894.
Land may have been rented prior to
that, because many community
members indicate it was in exis-
tence long before then.
Zette Nicholson is credited with
making numerous unsuccessful
attempts to have a permanent
school structure established, the
school having been based in
churches in the earliest years. His
efforts were eventually rewarded in
1923. The structure still stands, and
now serves as the cafeteria for Little

Zion Church.
A member of Little Zion's first
class, Lillian Ardelia Pittman
Baker, provided "The Legacy" with
a history of St. Paul High School. It
was established through ninth grade
in 1941-42. The principal was
William R. Johnson Sr., pastor of
New Bethel Christian Methodist
Episcopal Church. It was originally
located in barracks next to St. Paul
African Methodist Episcopal
Church. A new school was built in
1951, for students grades one
through 12, in Campbellton. Baker
went on to teach second and third
grades there. The last class graduat-
ed in 1971. A memorial was erect-
ed on the site of the old now-demol-
ished school in 2005.
In the early 1940s, a female
African-American entrepreneur
established an institution of higher
learning in Jackson County. Whites
Beauty College, founded by Curlie
Sansome White, was one of the few
beauty schools approved by the
state of Florida. The Rehabilitation
and Veterans Administration also
certified it as a place for veteran
training. The founder helped her
students in a variety of ways
beyond instruction; only a fraction
of the actual cost of the program
was required of students for admis-
Students were assisted in getting
part-time jobs while they pursued
training, and in getting permanent
jobs or opening their own shops
when they completed their studies.
Tuition was $150, or $125 if paid in
cash at the start of studies. Students
were able to pay in increments as
they could, as long as they paid up
by graduation. Some students
boarded with White for a cost of
$20 a month. White also prepared
two meals a day for student board-
ers, at $18 a month.
The school was located at the
comers of St. Andrews and Borden
'streets in Marianna. The first stu-
dents to register were Palma Clay
and Lillian Paramore, in 1946. It
operated through 1958.

' 14A Sunday, February 6,2011 Jackson County Floridan BLACK HI STORY M ONTH


ldward Jones will celebrate his Y/th birthday fmis sum-
mer. He has lived in Jackson County most of his life. On
a recent visit to the Floridan, he talked about some of
his memories.

Farmer, bus

driver, crewman

- Jones did it all

Edward Jones will turn 97
in June of this year. He can't
see as well as he used to, and
he uses a cane, but he doesn't
"I thank God to be alive; I
could be gone," he said on a
recent visit to the Floridan.
He has lived in Jackson
County most of his life, and
helped built the road and rail
infrastructure in and around
Jackson County.
He's known as a hard-
working man, and he was
also a hard-working child.
By the age of 7, he was
delivering newspapers before
church on Sundays, walking
a four or five block area of
Madison Street before head-
ing over to St. James AME
Church, located then on
Clinton Street.
His father, Pharoh Jones,
operated the first asphalt-
heating plant in Jackson
County, and instilled in his
children early on that all
members of the family had to
chip in to make ends meet.
By the time he was 9, he
was working at the Brandon
Neel Elevator operation,
located near the peanut plant
in downtown Marianna. He
was paid 50 cents a day of
work days that started at
sunrise and ended at sunset.
He walked to work from his
early home on Pearl Street,
where he lived with his par-
ents and two siblings. The
family later moved to
Magnolia Road.
He was a mule driver at the
old wood veneer mill in that
area when he was a teenager,
managing the animals that
brought in wagons loaded
with lumber.
At the age of 18, he pulled
lines for the crew that sur-
veyed the M&B railroad all
the way from Marianna into
Blountstown. This job
entailed marking routes with
taut, chalked lines.
He also did this task for
companies surveying lands
all around Jackson County.
He was 21 years old when
he started driving, His first
ride was a new Model T his
parents bought new for $140,
back when gas cost less than
30 cents a gallon.
He married Florene
Washington in 1935 and the
couple started raising a fami-
ly. Early in their marriage, he
was the first black man in
Jackson County to buy land
through the Farmers Home
Administration. He pur-
chased an 80-acre spread off
Garden View Road east of
Alford, and eventually
expanded it to 400 acres. He
has since sold some of it, but
retains 180 acres. It will pass
to his eldest son, one of six
He farmed with a mule and
plow most of his life, and
held multiple jobs at the same
time. He also took hours out
of each day to drive about 25
children from the neighbor-
hood to school at Jackson
Academy Training School,
after the small Mt. Olive
Community School in their
area closed.
For more than a year, he
loaded them up in the back of
his pick-up truck, where he
had affixed a tarp to keep the
wind and cold off his young
And all that time, he was
making almost daily trips to
see the superintendent of

schools. He wanted the coun-
ty to assign a bus for the stu-
dents, having daily watched
buses take other children to
and from school.
After about a year of this,
the superintendent relented.
But Jones wasn't off the
hook; he drove that bus for
about 18 years. In addition to
his daily route, he took 4-H
girls to convention in Ocala
in the summertime. He was
the first black man to drive a
county school bus, and even-
tually turned the duty over to
his son; who had been a baby
when he first started trying to
get the bus assigned to his
Jones grew peanuts, cot-
ton, corn, raised cows, hogs,
and grew a home garden for
the family's food. He slaugh-
tered hogs and cows for the
family and community.
Throughout this time, he
worked other jobs. He was a
flagman and crewman for the
L&N railroad when it was
being laid from Panama City
to Dothan, Ala., and worked
on the construction of
Graham Air Base, now the
Marianna municipal airport.
When Fairview Road
(County Road 167) was
being built, he was a grade
foreman on the job, and tried
without success to convince
the, company building it to
decrease the grade on a hill
that still floods in heavy rain. .
He worked as a supervisor
at Jackson Apparel in
In many of his jobs, he was
in a position to hire people.
His daughter, Frances
Menchion, said he hired both
black and white workers.
"He worked people, he
employed as many as he
could," she said. "He brought
a bus to haul people to work
here from as far away as
Quincy, when he was a crew
leader for a tung oil extrac-
tion operation in Compass
Lake," Menchion said.
"There's more than one fam-
ily, a lot of families in fact,
that would tell you they prob-
ably couldn't have made it if
it hadn't been for the jobs he
provided. He didn't mind
putting people to work. He
was certainly a worker him-
self, and he wanted to make
things better for others."
Except for the bus battle,
he said he wasn't on the front
lines of the civil rights strug-
gle, but in his own way
worked behind the scenes.
He recruited people to vote,
and encouraged young peo-
ple to get involved in the
political process, for
instance, and achieved many
personal firsts.
Menchion said her
father's focus was always
on his family,- meeting its
daily needs and putting all
six children through col-
lege. Between them and his
grandchildren, he boasts a
surgeon, a homeland secu-
rity employee, a business
owner, a civil service
employee, a few military
standouts, a farmer, a car
salesman and many other
successful members of the
family. Frances Menchion
was a teacher for 35 years
in the Jackson County
school system.
Jones attributes his
longevity and relative good
health to hard work, devo-
tion to God, and clean liv-
ing. He's never smoked or
drank, he said, and is just
happy to still be here.

Pirates rally

to beat Tigers

The Sneads Pirates
closed their regular season
schedule Friday night with
one of their biggest wins
of the season, rallying
from a fourth-quarter
deficit to beat Malone 52-

John Locke scored 20
points ificluding 12 in
the fourth quarter to lead
the Pirates, with Daryll
Johnson adding 14.
Ty Baker scored 14
points to lead Malone, but
the Tigers were unable to
hold off Sneads' late
charge despite leading by
as much as 11 points in the
third quarter.
"That was one of our
better games that we've
played all year long,"
Pirates coach Kelvin
Johnson said after the

game. "We did a very
good job of handling the
ball and not turning it
over. I thought Daryll
Johnson did a real good
job of running the offense.
I don't think we had more
than seven or eight
turnovers all game. We
just did a good job of han-
dling the pressure, and a
good job of executing late
in the game."
The Pirates trailed 39-

the four-minute mark, and

free throws late to seal the

Big comeback clinches

playoff berth for Graceville

Lady Tigers rally
late to defeat
Lady Hornets


Graceville Lady Tigers
overcame a slow start to
rally past Cottondale for a
43-33 victory Friday night
in the semifinals of the
District 2-2A tournament.
Cottondale scored the
first 12 points of the
game, and led 16-3 with
just over two minutes left
in the first period.
But the Lady Tigers ral-
lied to cut the lead to three
at halftime, and surged
past the Lady Hornets in
the second half.
The win advanced
Graceville to Saturday
night's district title game
against Holmes County,
and it clinched a playoff
berth for the Lady Tigers.
"It wasn't pretty, but it
was a win," Graceville
coach Jon Habali said
after the game "It's not
easy to beat Cottondale. It
never is. But we're in the
playoffs now, and that was
our goal at the start of the

ket moments later to make
it 12-3.

Habali said his team's
defensive intensity and
patience on offense after
the first period proved to
be the difference.
"The defense is what
turned it around," the
coach said. "We stopped
giving up easy baskets,
and the bigs went to work
down low. We were forc-
ing passes early on, but
we became more patient
offensively. But we won
on defense. It was certain-
ly not our shooting that
did it."

What will also make things
smoother is just how much
of a veteran team that
Wiggins is inheriting.
Only outfielder Allison
Hutton is gone from last
season's starting lineup,
with senior star Cayce
Griffin back at catcher, and
top two pitchers Hall Stout
and Dean now joined by
Milton to give the Lady
Bulldogs an exceptionally
talented pitching rotation.
Jennifer Cramer gives the
Lady 'Dawgs another
proven senior, with Haden
Searcy, Maya Boykin,
Dean, Lipford, and Basford
all providing production
and depth throughout the
"Without a doubt, I think
we're extremely talented,"
Wiggins said. "Expectations
are high. It's just pretty
unusual to have this much
talent on one varsity team
coming back."
Perhaps most unusual for
the 3A level is the pitching
depth, with Milton rejoining
the staff after missing the
2010 season after an out-
standing sophomore season
in 2009.
"Eron is a real big addi-
tion for our pitching staff,"
Wiggins said. "She snakes
us that much deeper. Hali
did a great job last year with
most of the pitching burden
being on her shoulders, but I
think that will help take
some of the pressure off of
her. and it will make us bet-
ter all around."
Wiggins said that the
sophomore Dean would
remain a part of the rotation
in 2011 after going a perfect

"We don't want to bum
all of them out," the coach
said. "Mallory will still play
an important role. (Having
three pitchers) gives me
some flexibility. If one's not
on that day, we'll have two
more options to go with. It's
a real good situation.

Griffin and Dean both led

The catalyst for the team
would appear to be Griffin,
who' returns for her third
season as the starting catch-
er for the Lady Bulldogs,
and has also signed with
"Cayce definitely plays a
vital role for us," Wiggins
said. "She's such an experi-
enced catcher, and she does
a great job of helping the
pitchers and providing a big
offensive spark. She's really
valuable for us. Her experi-

their defense a little bit,
and we started just taking
the first open look we got.
Sneads was more patient,
they were aggressive with
their defense, and they
made a lot of big shots."
The Tigers fell to 17-7
on the season, and will
next play on Tuesday night
in Quincy against the win-
ner of John Paul and
Aucilla Christian in the
District 2-1A tournament
Welch said it would've
been nicer to go into the
postseason coming off of a
win, but he wasn't too wor-
ried about Friday night's

ence is a key."
The Lady Bulldogs have
an exceptionally strong sen-
ior class of five, and the
coach said they would do
the most to determine the
team's fate this season.
"They're very important,"
Wiggins said. "We're going
to look to them to set .the
tone, and to make sure the
tempo is up. They have to
be the leaders on this team.
They have to step up this
year and push the girls a lit-
tle harder so our work ethic
is better."
After falling to Chipley in
the district championship
game, and then 1-0 to
Florida High in the first
round of the 3A playoffs
last year, there's no shortage
of motivation for this year's
Lady 'Dawgs.
"No. 1, we want to bring
. the district championship
back to Marianna," Wiggins
said. "Our ultimate goal
would be making the final
four at state. I know we can
win district and move deep
into the playoffs. I believe
they're very capable of
making a state run.
"The girls are working
hard and doing everything I
ask them to do. We're start-
ing to play harder, get dirty,
and hustle more. Everything
is going to come around,
and I believe we'll be a
force to be reckoned with."
Marianna will open the
season on Thursday at

effort carrying over into
next week.
"I never felt like it was
about effort or energy, just
decision making," the
coach said. "As long as the
effort is there. I feel like
we've got a chance and
can rebound with stuff. A
new season starts Tuesday.
so we go from there. Now.
it's basically win or go
home. Those kinds of mis-
takes and mental letdowns
like we had against
Sneads will cost you big
this time of year. I hope
we put it in the past and
play with a lot of energy
and enthusiasm."

Lady Pirates start off strong

FItur.DN SIrJK EnO.-
The Sneadcs Lady Pirates
took a pair of wins Saturday
afternoon in a preseason soft-
ball classic in Sneads.
The Sneads girls beat Port
St. Joe 8-5 in the first game
of the day, and then came
back to blow out Liberty
County 11-2 in the second
Karissa Childs started for
Sneads in the first game and
went all seven innings for the
Port St. Joe got three runs
in the first inning to take the
early lead. The Lady Pirates
answered right back with
two runs in the bottom of the
Jolie Johnson had an RBI
single to score Kayla Kelly,
and then Kayla Rabon fol-
lowed with an RBI hit to
score Johnson.
Kelly added a two-run
home run in the second
inning to tie the game at 4-4.
The Lady Pirates then
added another run in the
third, and three in the fourth
to pull away late.
Rabon and Kelly had two
hits each to lead Sneads.
The second game saw the
Lady Pirates match up with a
Liberty County team that

beat them in both meetings
last season, and which
returned most of its players
from that team.
Sneads coach Kelvin
Johnson went with junior
varsity ace Amber Averitt in
the circle. The sophomore
was dominant, retiring 14
straight batters after allowing
two runs in the first inning.
The Lady Bulldogs had
three hits in the first inning,
yet managed only one the
rest of the game, a two-out
single in the seventh inning.
"To be honest, it went
great. Liberty County was
supposed to be one of the
best teams around, and they
beat us twice last year,"
Sneads coach Kelvin
Johnson said. "Amber
pitched really well. Like I've
said before, if something
happens to Karissa, Amber
will be our backup pitcher.
She's on JV right now, but I
don't know how long she'll
stay there if she keeps pitch-
ing like she did today. She
just beat a team we couldn't
beat last year, and she shut
them down."
After leaving the bases
loaded in the first inning with
no runs scoring, the Lady
Pirates exploded for nine
runs in the decisive second

Jolie Johnson hit a two-run
single with the bases loaded
to score Ashlen Wilson and
London Chason, with Kelly
and Johnson both scoring off
of a Liberty County error to
make it 4-2.
The next three Sneads bat-
ters walked, and DeAnne
Berry doubled to score two.
Wilson and Chason then
added RBI 'singles to make it
a 9-2 Sneads edge.
The Lady Pirates added
two more in the fifth inning
on an RBI single by Johnson,
who later scored on a passed

Johnson finished the game
with four hits and three RBI,
while Kelly had two hits.
Kelvin Johnson said he
was excited about how his
team played Saturday, partic-
ularly in the second game.
"It was very encouraging,"
the coach said. "We were not
real good against Port St. Joe,
but we were real good
against Liberty County. I was
very encouraged. We hit the
ball like I thought we could.
We didn't strike out much,
we had some good shots, and
it was all the way down the
lineup too."

The Port St. Joe Sharks

night in Port St. Joe.
Calvin Pryor scored 20

while Roman Quinn added
Kevin Potts had nine
points to lead the Tigers,
with Rasheed Campbell
adding eight.
It was the regular season
finale for Graceville. which
fell to 9-15 with the loss.
Tigers coach Thomas
Register credited Port St.
Joe for its performance, but
said that his team fell back
into familiar bad habits.
"They have gotten a lot
better since the first of the
season," the coach said of
the Sharks. "They were on
their game. They were
knocking down shots.
They're so quick that you
can't come out on them,
but we were forced to
because they were shooting
well, and they went right
by us.
"But we turned it over
twice to start the game, and
that's been the story of our
season. When we turn it
over, we're bad."
Graceville had 28
turnovers on the night, and
the Sharks led by 34 points

"What's killing us is that

are unforced." Register
said. "That's hurting us

ket and make a lazy pass.
or fumble the ball off of
our hands, or not be ready
for a pass. We were doing it
to ourselves. I'm sure their
pressure had something to
do with it, but we have to
be better."
The Tigers got a boost in
the return of post player
Leander Ford from injury.
However, they were again
without starting forward

'with a knee injury.

know if Laster would be

Tigers take on Sneads on
Tuesday night in the first
round of the District 2-2A
tournament in Bonifay.

The Marianna Bulldogs
outlasted the Cottondale
Hornets 54-49 Thursday
night in a hard-fought
county game in Cottondale.
Cottondale led in the
fourth quarter, after trailing
32-28 at the end of three,
but the Bulldogs proved to
be too much down the
stretch, as they held on to
earn their 17th win of the
Kruize Pinkins scored 18
points to lead the Bulldogs,
while Tre Jackson had 15,
and Kendall Leeks 13.
Darien Pollock scored 13
points to lead Cottondale,
with Jeremie Glover
adding 12, and Clifford
Canty eight.
It was the final game of
the regular seasonfor the
Hornets, who finished at
12-12 heading, into next
week's district tournament
in Bonifay.
Despite the loss,
Cottondale coach Chris
Obert said he. was happy
with how his team played,
especially coming off of a

pair of ugly losses to
Holmes County and
Malone the previous week.
"Honestly, I felt pretty
good about how we've
played the whole year,
except for last week," the
coach said. "Last week was
just pretty tough on us. We
seemed to struggle ,the
entire week. The loss to
Bonifay felt like rock bot-
tom. We played a little bet-
ter for about a half against
Malone, but it still wasn't
good at all.
"With this being our one
game this week, we talked
about getting better going
into the district. We played
for four quarters. We just
weren't able to come out on
top. But I can't fault the
effort. The kids played
hard. It was a. physical
game, and we battled."
The. Bulldogs suffered a
tough blow earlier in the
week in finding out that
key reserve Quay Royster
will be out for the remain-
der of the season, due to an
injury he suffered against
Chipley on Jan. 13.
Marianna coach Travis
Blanton said he was just

pleased to see his team
grind out a win.
"We kind of did what we
had to do," he said. "But
Cottondale caused us some
problems. They had a good
game plan, and they exe-
cuted it well. I thought they
did a good job of control-
ling tempo. I was really
impressed with Cottondale.
I think if they continue to
play like that, they'll win
their district."
The game was tied 12-12
in the first quarter, but the
Bulldogs went ahead 21-16
at the half.
Cottondale kept close in
the third period, and surged
in front momentarily in the
However, Pinkins proved
too tough for the Hornets to
contain in the final period.
"Kruize is a real good
player. He's hard to deal
with," Obert said. "We did
the best we could with him.
I thought Glover battled
well, and we doubled him
well at times and caused a
few turnovers. It's just hard
to shut him down. He does
a lot of things that make
everyone else around him

The Bulldogs will also
play in their district tourna-
ment next week, playing in
the semifinals on Friday
night in Pensacola.
Blanton said his team
would need to be sharper
moving forward, but he
was happy with his. team's
resolve on the road
Thursday night.
"I was proud of the kids
for finishing it off," he said.
"It's tough sometimes
when you feel like both
groups played their hearts
out. Somebody had to get
he win; and. I was glad it
was us."

A feathered


The door wasn't opened
widely. Only a crack. 'On
the other hand, it doesn't
require much of an open-
ing to arouse

of a way-
wren or
much of a
Bob space to
Komegay allow his
I never saw or heard him
enter. I was, in one of my
rare moments of undis-
tracted concentration,
proofreading a recently
finished magazine article.
There I sat, minding my
own business, when that
perky little tail-flick caught
my eye.
It was not a "midnight
dreary." I was not "weak
and weary." Nor was I
pondering any curious vol-
umes of "forgotten lore."
Foremost, this little dude
was no "raven." Matter of
fact, he was about as far
removed from an Edgar
Allan Poe character as I
am from Poe's literary bril-
liance. Hard to picture a
Carolina wren as "bird or
devil," after all.
That said, the wren was
no less distracting. I mean,
it ain't every day a writer
looks up and sees a bird
hopping around in his
study. Well, I do occasion-
ally hallucinate, but never
when I'm working or out
of Irish whiskey.
First thought: Oh, both-
er. I need to get up and
shoo him out of here.
Second thought: No, better
not. He may fly against the
wall and hurt himself or,
worse, go "number two"
on my laptop.
Ah, a dilemma. What
would Poe do'? No, never
mind that. He'd just drink
a bottle of brandy and pass
out. I have neither the
brandy nor the time for
I know. Take the broom,
reach out and carefully
push the door open all the
way. That's it. Perfect.
Give the wren an unob-
structed avenue of escape
and at the same time actu-
ally use the broom that's
been leaning in the comer
gathering the dust it should
have been sweeping up.
Two "birds" with one
stone, if you will.
There. now. Slowly.
carefully. Ease it open.
Don't frighten him. Yes!
Mission accomplished.
Moments later, nothing.
He just sat there, perched
on the rim of my grandfa-

"Suit yourself
Stay if you want.
I don't care. "

their's old shaving mug.
Then, tiring of that vantage
point, I suppose, he flew
down from the curio shelf
and settled on the rim of
the trash can, not 3 feet
from me.
We sat there looking at
each other. I was fascinat-
ed. He seemed bored. My
pen slipped from my hand
and fell to the floor. He
wasn't the least bit fazed.
The sound of my portable
electric heater didn't seem
to bother him, either.
Carolina wrens are like
tough little playground
runts. They don't scare
"Suit yourself," I said
aloud. "Stay if you want. I
don't care."
Immediately afterward
the realization that I'd just
spoken to a bird occurred
to me, yet another good
reason to locate one's
study away from the
house. Thanks be to an
ever-kind Providence my
little intruder didn't utter
"Nevermore" in reply.
The wren stayed with
me about 10 minutes more.
In turn, he checked out my
bookshelf, my air mattress,
a Coleman lantern charg-
ing in the comer and a
storage carton of old news-

I earlier mentioned. Thus,
with my attention turned to
him, the last page of my

at best, haphazardly.

Arenas served court petition during game


guard Gilbert Arenas was
served with child support
and custody papers as he
left the court during half-
time of the Magic's loss to
Miami on Thursday night.
The court documents,
obtained by The Associated
Press, were a California
petition filed by Laura
Mendoza Govan. She iden-
tified herself as his ex-girl-
friend in the documents.
The petition seeks cus-
tody and child support for

three children that Govan
says Arenas fathered and
has since "financially cut
off." She is also seeking
support for another unborn
child,- as well as monthly
support for the other chil-
In the petition, she is
seeking $109,000 in
monthly support payments
from Arenas and $1.3 mil-
lion annually. .
Govan could not be
reached for comment.
A hearing in the case has
been set for March 8 in Los
Angeles. Orlando plays at
Sacramento on March 9.

"Everything I say is reac-
tion for something I did."
Arenas said after the
Magic's 110-92 victory at
Washington on Friday.
"She got served, so now she
wants to say something on
TV, that's all it is. I don't
pay attention to it. My
lawyer said I can take it
because ... it's just reactions
to reactions."
He said he wasn't sur-
prised by Govan serving
him with the petition. He
also disputed her claim that
he hasn't supported her
S "I don't pay much atten-

tion to it because this is
who she is as a person." he
said. "It's sad that it has to
be in the public's eye. She
gets money. I mean when a
girl asks for S100.000 a
month and you say no, that
doesn't mean you're cut
off. You're still getting 20.
... That's the thing that
bothers me. She tells the
world that she's not getting
money. She gets $20,000 a
Arenas' attorney. Lisa
Fishberg of Washington-
based Schertler & Onorato,
said in a written statement
that, "This is a private mat-

ter involving young chil-
dren. It is inappropriate for
Ms. Govan and her attor-
neys to attempt to turn it
into a public spectacle.
Gilbert Arenas has been
extremely generous in pay-
ing monthly support volun-
tarily. The accusation that
they have been 'financially
cut off' has no basis in
Govan states in the docu-
ments that she and Arenas
had about a nine-year rela-
tionship that included a
September 2008 engage-
meat. The documents also
say they lived together in a

pair of homes that Arenas
owned in Virginia while
playing with the Wizards.
Govan is originally from
California and the docu-
ments say she has returned
to the West Coast and that
she and the children are liv-
ing in a low-budget hotel.
She claims in her petition
that during the course of the
relationship Arenas kicked
her out of the homes sever-
al times. She says Arenas
cut off contact with her and
the children in early
December. shortly before
he was traded to the Magic
and moved to Florida.

Bass fishing continues to
be fair. Largemouth activi-
ty overall is said to be spo-
radic. The fish are awaiting
a consistent warm-up from
the mid 50s average water
temperatures. Wanner
water should usher in a
flurry of bass activity. *
Right now, flipping jigs in
matted vegetation can pro-
duce some pretty fair
catches. Rat-L-Traps
fished along the edges of.
grass lines is a good pat-
tern, as are Carolina-rigs
and drop-shots along creek
Crappies are reasonably
active at mid-range depths
and there is increased
activity among the schools
that remain deep. Sizable
recent catches have been
reported and the individual
fish have been of very
good size. Minnows are
the best bait offerings.
Catfish have gotten
slightly more active of
late, while other species
continue slow.
Bass fishing is fair and
water level at present dic-
tates targeting the banks
and fishing the shoreline
vegetation. Simply find
inundated grass and work
these flooded areas with
floating worms, lip-less
crankbaits, small shallow-
running crankbaits and
spinnerbaits. "Swimming"
jigs tipped with plastic
worms has paid off for
some in these areas as
well. If you worm-fish
here, stay with a Texas-rig
presentation. Dark-colored
jigs and worms are best.
For largemouths that con-
tinue to hold hard on the
ledges, fish jigging spoons
on heavy line.
The hybrids are still on

the deeper ledges, but for
now are suspended and
slow to bite.
Crappies remain deep
and have slowed down.
For now, continue fishing
minnows and tipped jigs
around deep structure.
Shallow up as the water
Bream and catfish
remain very slow for now.
The largemouths will be
congregating on the main
river ledges during the
cold Weather, where it is
possible to catch one occa-
sionally on jigging spoons
and jig-and-pig combos..
Fishing will be slow, as the
bass will not be very active
over the next few days. On
a positive note, the few
fish taken right now are
likely to be quality individ-
uals. Return to the creek
mouths with crankbaits
and Texas-rigs when the
water warms.
Catfish will be slow in
the cold water, but now is
the time to look forward to
a warm-up and expect the
larger channel cats, blues,
, and flatheads to become
more active in the tailwa-
ters soon.
Crappies are still slow
and will remain so for
awhile. As on the reser-
voirs, they are due to
become more active with
warmer weather.
Hybrids and bream con-
tinue on the slow side.

10 Super Bowl

ads to watch for

during the game


Advertisers are rolling out
celebrities, animals galore
and old favorites to capture
the attention of more than
100 million people expected
to tune in for Super Bowl
XLV on Sunday.
A sampling of commer-
cials people are bound to be
talking about after the game:
BEST BUY: Odd couple
Justin Bieber and Ozzy
Osbourne will star in the
electronics seller's Super
Bowl debut in the third quar-
ter that promotes a new pro-
gram where Best Buy will
buy back electronics when
customers decide to upgrade.
The ad's still under wraps,
but pairing the teen idol and
the prince of darkness cer-
tainly fires the imagination.
AUDI: One. of at least nine
automakers advertising dur-
ing the Super Bowl, Audi's
ad during the first break after
kickoff is targeted at younger
buyers. It shows people
escaping from a posh prison

Ask Mr. K

Q: Whatever became of
Ginger Alden, the fiancee of
Elvis Presley, when he
passed away in August
1977? Did she ever marry?
J.S., Jackson, Wy.
A: Five months before'
Ginger Alden was to
become Mrs. Elvis Presley,
the King passed away. She
entered the world in
Memphis, Tenn., on Nov.
13, 1956. (Presley's birth-
day: Jan. 8, 1935.)
Although the two met in
1958, they were later rein-
troduced when Alden was
20 years old. Shortly after
that, Presley proposed mar-
,riage to her. After Presley's
death, Alden made a career
in modeling, radio, televi-
sion and film. She appeared
in numerous commercials
and made guest appear-
ances on TV shows. She
was a regular cast member
of the daytime soap opera
"Capitol" .(along with Teri
Hatcher) for the 1986-1987
season. I have read many
biographies and interviews
of Ginger Alden, but none
mention her marital status.
Q: There is an old poem

to illustrate the difference
between "old luxury" and
The mocking office chimps
that show why viewers might
want to look for a new job
return in a third-quarter ad.
Promotes the .co alternative
to the .com Web domain in
an ad that shows celebrity fit-
ness trainer Jillian Michaels
and racecar driver Danica
Patrick seemingly naked'and
directs viewers to its Web
site to see the ending.
PEPSI: PepsiCo teamed
with Eminem on a first quar-
ter stop-motion animated
spot that uses a puppet with
Eminem's likeness to pro-
mote Lipton Brisk. Also has
three ads each for its Pepsi
MAX and Doritos, all creat-
ed by fans.
SNICKERS: Comedians
Roseanne Barr and Richard
Lewis star in a second-quar-
ter ad. It's an encore to last
year's hit commercial that
saw comedian and actress
Betty White take a vicious

or quotation that goes, "For
the want of a nail a shoe
was lost. For the want of a
shoe ..." If you can find this
for me, I'm going to have it
made into a sign and hang it
on my office wall. N.M,
Darby, Pa.
A: This proverb, "For
Want of a Nail," has been
around in many variations
for centuries. It reveals that
small actions can result in
large consequences. Here is
one variation:
"For want of a nail the
shoe was lost.
For want of a shoe the
horse was lost.
For want of a horse the
rider was lost.
For want of a rider the
battle was lost.
For want of a battle the
kingdom was lost.
And all for the want of a
horseshoe nail."
. Q: I suppose every scien-
tific study has a specific
name. I hope you can help
me with this one. What is
the name of the study of
place names and their ori-
gins or meanings? C.K.,
New Bedford, Mass.
A: Toponymy. The word
comes from the Greek
words that mean "place"

tackle on a football field.
E-TRADE: The online
investing site brings back the
popular talking babies it
introduced in 2008 in a third-
quarter ad.
The brewer will promote an
imported brand, Stella
Artois, for the first time on
the Super Bowl. That ad stars
Oscar-winning actor Adrien
Brody as a 1960s jazz club
singer. (If you're looking for-
ward to Bud Light's leg-
endary humor, it has three
commercials coming, too,
which it has teased on
Kardashian "will break
someone's heart," the shoe
maker says, in an ad for ton-
ing shoes near the two-
minute warning.
automaker's trademark
whimsy permeates an ad in
which a Darth Vader-cos-
tumed boy tries using The
Force on household objects
and his father's Passat.

Tom Hanks Tom Cruise

and "name."
Tom Hanks turned down the
role of Jerry Maguire in the
eponymous movie? Of
course, Tom Cruise took
over the part.
Q: Whatever happened to
the child actor who played
Ritchie on "The Dick Van
Dyke Show"? L.S.,
Arcadia, Calif.
A: Born in Burbank,
Calif., on Aug. 15, 1955,
Larry Mazzeo (stage name
Larry Mathews) became
Ritchie Petrie in 1961. After
the series ended in 1966, he
took on a new role as a
normal kid. He graduated
from UCLA in 1976. He
later returned to show busi-
ness and worked behind the
scenes on "I'm a Big Girl
Now," "Soap," "Benson"
and other TV shows. In
1983, he began working in
postproduction sales. Most
recently, he has been the
director of a video compa-

Both must work to save marriage

Dear Annie: My wife and I have been
married for 21 years. We hit a low note in
our marriage, and she met an old friend on
Facebook. The two of them texted and
called each other, met for dinner, got
together again and hopped in the sack, and
then saw each other once more to
talk anid kiss. I found her texts and \
phone calls. We have been to a
marriage counselor, and my wife
wants to work it out. We have
three teenage children, and I am\ k-t
trying to stay together for them.
My wife says she hates what she
did, is sorry. I still have a difficult
time trusting her. I feel we've grown
apart. Should I work it out and stay for
the kids' sake? We were pretty close
before this and did most things together as
a family. Not Sure What To Do
Dear Not Sure: It is difficult to regain
trust when a partner has cheated, but it is
not impossible. It takes time, willingness
and complete transparency on your wife's
part. She, too, could have felt you were
growing apart when she succumbed to the
affair. It does not justify her behavior, but it
may help you understand her dissatisfac-
tion. When both partners commit to saving
the marriage and take the necessary steps


H.E. Martz said, "He who builds a better mousetrap
these days runs into material shortages, patent-
infringement suits, work stoppages, collusive bidding,
discount discrimination and taxes."
We have been looking at deals in which declarer
has to decide whether to play high or low from the
dummy at the first trick. In this example, West leads
the heart king against your contract of five clubs.
West opened three hearts, showing a good seven-
card suit and 6-10 high-card points. After two passes,
you sensibly jumped to five clubs. Remember, when
you come into the auction after an opponent opens
with a high-level pre-empt, assume partner has 6 or 7
high-card points. And here, if he has a stronger hand
than that, he can contemplate bidding six clubs. (Yes,
a three-no-trump overcall would have worked well.)
You have 11 top tricks: two spades, one heart, one
diamond and seven clubs. Can anything go wrong?
Yes, if East has no hearts. And the bidding tells you
that he is void. West announced seven, dummy has
five, and you hold a singleton. If you call for dummy's
heart ace, you know that East will ruff and your 11th
trick will evaporate. What is the solution?
Just play low from the dummy at trick one. West will
presumably continue with the heart queen. Play low
from the dummy again and ruff in your hand, draw

to reconnect, revitalize and remember what
brought them together, the relationship can
actually become stronger. We hope you
will continue with counseling to see if you
can do this, not only for your children's
sake, but for your own.
Dear Annie: I have a comment for the
many grandparents who lament the
lack of thank-you notes from
their grandchildren. My chil-
S >dren, both in their late teens,
have written thank-you notes
(O since they were little. I wrote
WO -,on their behalf when they were
/"'Z \ \too young to do so. My question
<*\ \ is, how many grandparents
have ever written a thank-you
-' note? My mother-in-law is on
the phone in a flash to complain if a note
is not received quickly enough. Yet we
have never once received a thank-you note
for any gift sent to her for any occasion.
Are grandparents exempt from writing
thank-you notes? Curious
Dear Curious: Absolutely not. Everyone
who receives a gift is obligated to send a
thank-you note of some kind.
Grandparents, especially, should set a good
example for the grandchildren. You might'
tell them so.


AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb.
19) If you start finding fault
with others, don't think you will
remain immune from criticism
yourself. Once you open up
Pandora's box. it will be impos-
sible to reseal.
PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20)
Because conditions could
cause you to get careless and
spend impulsively. all financial
affairs must be handled as
rationally as possible and with
great prudence so that you don't
suffer a loss.
ARIES (March 21-April 19)
There's a good chance you
could indulge yourself in too
many things that may not be
good for you, eating or drinking
too much can lead down a long
and lonesome road.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20)
Normally, when it really
counts you are extremely thor-
ough and methodical about
what you are doing. Yet after
accepting a job of this ilk, you
could thoughtlessly proceed in a
slipshod fashion.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20)-
Determine exactly what you
want to achieve today or else
you could get caught up wasting
your valuable time doing what
another wants to do that is of no
or little significance to you.
CANCER (June 21-July 22)
Being a winner and achieving
your goals are both admirable
aspirations, but if you do either
at the expense of another, your
victory will be hollow and the
repercussions could be severe.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -
Embarrassment is indicated if
you attempt tp come off as
knowing all about a matter or
issue about which you are total-
ly ignorant. It isn't worth pre-
tending to be an authority when
you're not.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)-
When doing business with
another today, try to get in writ-
ing what you feel could be prob-
lematical for you later if left
up in the air. Your prediction is
likely to come true.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -
Although much may be prom-
ised, nothing of significance will
be gained if you put a business
deal together based only upon
the trust of a friendship. Make
sure the proposal is able to
stand on its own.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22)
Keep your wits about you at
all times today because condi-
tions could turn out to be a bit
uncertain and cause some dis-
ruptions. Reserve your judg-
ment call until all the facts are in.
21) The only way to keep
your budget healthy is to trim
away all nonessential expendi-
ture immediately. Once your
funds are gone, it will be impos-
sible to get back what you need.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan.
19) Be extremely careful
about what secrets you reveal to
whom. Someone with little com-
mon sense could distort what
s/he hears, making it impossible
to get your reputation back.

Egypt ruling party leaders Eye on unrest, Iraq PM says

resign but regime holds he won't seek third term


CAIRO The top leadership body of
Egypt's ruling party resigned Saturday,
including the president's son. but the regime
appeared to be digging in its heels, calculat-
ing that it can ride out street protests and keep
President Hosni Mubarak in office.
Protesters rejected the concessions and
vowed to keep up their campaign until
Mubarak steps down, convinced that the
regime intends to enact only superficial dem-
ocratic reforms and keep its hold on power.
Tens of thousands thronged Cairo's central
Tahrir Square in a 12th day of protests, chant-
ing "He will go! He will go!"
But the United States gave a strong
endorsement to Mubarak's deputy Omar
Suleiman's handling of the transition, warn-
ing that order was needed to prevent extrem-
ists from hijacking the process. "It's impor-
tant to support the transition process
announced by the Egyptian government actu-
ally headed by now-Vice President Omar
Suleiman," Secretary of State Hillary
Rodham Clinton said at an international secu-
rity conference in Munich, Germany.
Frank Wisner, the retired American
diplomat sent by President Barack Obama
to Cairo this past week to tell Mubarak that
the U.S. saw his rule coming to an end,
said Mubarak had to keep a leadership role
at least temporarily if the "fragile glim-

merings" of progress were to take hold as
quickly as needed.
Mubarak insists he will remain in his post
until his term ends in the autumn after presi-
dential elections in September. Washington
has said the transition should bring greater
democracy to ensure a free and fair vote. But
protesters fear that without an immediate
Mubarak exit and the pressure from the
streets, the regimeywiLmrnerge with its
authoritarian monopoly largely intact.

Nouri al-Maliki will not run for a third
term in 2014. an adviser said Saturday.
limiting himself in the
H name of democracy while
keeping a wary eye on the
popular anger at govern-
ments across the Middle
Al-Maliki, a Shiite, nar-
rowly held onto a second
four-year term despite
Noun falling short in national
al-Maliki elections last year. His
successor will be the first
to lead without U.S. military help since
the fall of Saddam Hussein after
American troops fully withdraw as
planned by the end of this year.
The prime minister made no public
statements on Saturday, but his decision
was broadcast on state TV and confirmed
by his media adviser, Ali al-Moussawi.
Al-Moussawi said al-Maliki also wants
to change the Iraqi constitution before he
leaves office to limit all future prime min-
isters to two terms.
"Eight years is enough for him, in order
to not convert to a dictatorship," al-
Moussawi told The Associated Press, as
state TV announced al-Maliki's decision.

"This is the principle and the concept of
Saturday's stunning announcement fol-
lows al-Maliki's decision a day earlier to
return half of his annual salary to the gov-
ernment a move he said was aimed at
narrowing the wide gap between rich and
poor Iraqis.
Al-Maliki is not required to publicly
report his pay. but he is believed to earn at
least $360.000 annually. The U.S. gov-
ernment estimates that as many as 30 per-
cent of Iraqis are unemployed.
The salary cut appeared calculated to
insulate al-Maliki from the anti-govern-
ment unrest spreading across the Middle
East, as clerics and protesters warned him
not to ignore public bitterness over Iraq's
sagging economy and electricity short-
ages. And his announcement Saturday
that he would step down after two terms
- a deadline more than three years away
- appeared fueled by the same desire to
shield Iraq from uprisings like those in
Tunisia and Egypt.
Some Iraqis were pleased to see him
preparing to give up power.
"He shortened the path for himself and
we do not regret that he made this deci-
sion," said Akram Saaied, a 52-year-old
Baghdad resident who works in the Oil
Ministry. "Let him leave as soon as possi-
ble because he did nothing for the

Australia faces weather woes with southern storms


CAIRNS, Australia The tail
end of one of Australia's largest-
ever cyclones triggered wild
storms and flash flooding at the
other end of the country
Saturday, while residents in the
cyclone zone picked through
what was left of their homes.
The tropical low that was
Cyclone Yasi, which tore through
the northeast earlier this week,
was active over central Australia
and making a series of thunder-
storms over the southern city of
Melbourne and other large towns
in Victoria state much worse, the
Bureau of Meteorology said.
More than 7 inches (175 mil-
limeters) of rain fell in just a few

hours overnight Friday in some
Melbourne neighborhoods and
winds gusting to 80 mph (130
kph) knocked down trees, the
Bureau of Meteorology said.
Drains were overwhelmed,
causing flash flooding that cov-
ered streets and swamped some
homes. The State Emergency
Service said 84 people were res-
cued from cars that stalled in
flooded streets, or from inundated
A 26-year-old English tourist
was taken to a hospital after part
of a tree fell on the tent she was
camping in, SES spokesman
David Tucek said.
Many parts of Australia have
suffered a summer of awful
weather, including pounding
rains across northeastern
Queensland state that caused the

nation's worst flooding in
decades, killing 35 people and
causing an estimated $5.6 billion
Yasi ripped across the coast
near Cairns on Wednesday night,
tearing apart dozens of homes
and damaging hundreds more,
cutting power to tens of thou-
sands of people and flattening
millions of dollars worth of crops.
Just one death was reported.
Police and army personnel
moved through the storm-sav-
aged coastal town of Tully Heads
on Saturday, going door-to-door
accounting for residents. .
Officials spray painted "No
Go" as a warning on the worst-hit
homes. A few houses were
reduced to rubble. A layer of
brown sludge covered the
ground, leaving a sickening smell

wafting throughout the commu-
The massive surge of water
ripped through homes, taking out
walls and pushing resident's
belongings into other people's
houses and yards.
Residents spent Saturday sift-
ing through the wreckage, and
dragging people's possessions
back to their owners.
"I'll take my container back
when you're done with it!" Ian
Barrett, 55, joked to his neighbor.
Barrett's huge blue shipping con-
tainer lay in the man's yard -
about 300 feet (90 meters) from
where it once stood.
Barrett's beachfront house was
still standing, but was nearly
empty inside. The waves ripped
everything from the home: furni-
ture, toys, appliances.
