A MEDIA GENERAL NEWSPAPER
Hospital expansion not costing tax dollars
The $6.5 million expansion and renovation to
Jackson Hospital is being paid for by the hospital.
According to the hospital's Director of Public
Relations Rosie Smith, the hospital is doing some
temporary short-term financing to fund the project,
and no ad valorem tax will be collected to pay for it.
Smith said the hospital is taking the opportunity
to renovate its existing facility, which is about 30
years old, to make it more appealing and more func-
tional for patient flow. The patient registration
process in the main lobby is going to be consolidat-
ed as part of the renovation.
The emergency room is going to see the biggest
change, Smith said. The EJ will double in capacity
.to meet the needs of the 25,000 people it sees each
The hospital is also looking at all of its space to
tailor it for ample patient flow. The hospital will
consolidate some services out of the hospital and
move them to the Hudnall Building. Services like
lab draws, routine tests, mammography and, eventu-
ally, infusion therapy services will be moved to the
This will help free up space in the hospital and
prevent people from having to go into the hospital
for outpatient services, Thomas said.
The renovation and expansion is expected to
begin Feb. 25, and be completed in March 2012.
A groundbreaking ceremony, open to the public,
is scheduled for Feb. 23 at 4 p.m., at the front of the
hospital, located at 4250 Hospital Drive in
Jackson Hospital's emergency room will be doubling in size as part of a planned renovation program.
Youth exhibit steers K
BY MORGAN CARLSON
They've been working
toward this day for months,
with their eyes on the prize
- Grand Champion.
Sixteen Jackson, County
4-H and FFA members
brought their pride and joys
to the Cattleman's
Association Fed 'Cattle
Show and Sale Tuesday.
Hayley Helms, a fifth-
grade student at Marianna
Middle School, won
Reserve Champion. Hayley
has been feeding, walking
and grooming her steer
Ricardo since July for
When she first got
Ricardo, Hayley was a
good bit taller than him.
Now, about seven months
later, they are about the
same height. Hayley said
she plans to continue rais-
ing cattle and eventually
make it a career.
She said everything
about raising steers is fun,
including the money she
can get from it, and getting
a few school days off. Plus,
she has the coolest pet out
of all her classmates, she

Jackson County Fire Rescue transported two women after a collision at the intersec-
tion of Lafayette and Wynn streets in Marianna Tuesday afternoon. The two women
complained of neck and back injuries, according to the Marianna Police
Department. Around 2:12 p.m., a black Ford Explorer reportedly rear-ended the red
Chevrolet Camaro the women were traveling in, after the light at the intersection
turned green. The Camaro reportedly moved forward and then stopped as the light
turned green. The wreck backed up traffic on Lafayette Street going both directions
for a short period of time. Morgan Carlson/Floridan

Life in the
The Internet is both a marvel and a men-
As we reported on Friday, telephone
scammers targeting the elderly have upped
their game. Relying on Google Maps and
'the, abundance of information now avail-
able online, they are calling senior citizens
at their homes and revealing information
about their homes and neighborhoods, in
an effort to separate these retired residents
from their money.
One woman who informed Marianna
police about one such call said the scam-
mers knew details about her home and her
neighborhood information they no
doubt gleaned from the Internet.
The Internet is a treasure-trove of data,
what with people posting personal details
about themselves in blogs, on Twitter, on
Facebook and elsewhere. It is also allowing
people to find lost schoolmates and rela-
tives, stay in touch with loved ones far
away, and in the Middle East especially
- allowing citizens to organize and mobi-
lize right under the noses of their dictatori-
Yet as privacy advocates have long been
arguing, all that information can be used
for nefarious as well as beneficial purposes,
In some cases, like Google Maps, street-
level views of entire cities are out there for
anyone to view, use and abuse.
There is little to be gained from arguing
that this kind of information needs to be
removed or restricted. Instead, everyone
needs to be more vigilant. Parents need to
know what websites their children are visit-
ing. Teenagers and adults need to be more
discriminating about how much informa-
tion they make available about themselves.
If someone calls or e-mails you and
claims to be from your bank, or the Social
Security office, or whatever be some-
what skeptical. Don't just volunteer things
like your Social Security number. In most
cases, these institutions already have that
And if someone calls or e-mails you and
offers to make you a millionaire well,
let's be honest, how likely is that? If it
sounds too good to be true, it probably is.

Job one is term two for Team Obama
STEVEN V. ROBERTS
Four huge banners spelling
out that word decorate the U.S.
Chamber of Commerce head-
quarters, directly across
Lafayette Square from the
White House. But those same
banners could also be flying
from 1600 Pennsylvania Ave.
Last fall, the Chamber and
the president fought a fierce bat-
tle for control of Congress. But
now they-have a common inter-
est, accelerating the economic
recovery and reducing the
unemployment rate. That's why
Obama defied his liberal critics
and strolled across the square to
address the Chamber and offer,
"I will go anywhere, anytime to
be a booster for American busi-
nesses, American workers and
The most important number
in American politics is the job-
less rate. It was approaching 10
percent in November, and that's
the single biggest.reason
Democrats got trounced at the
polls. Obama knows full well
that his chances for re-election
depend heavily on his ability to
reduce that number and con-
vince voters that the country is
headed in the right direction.
Around the White House, job
one is term two, and Team
Obama has come to acknowl-
edge a basic truth. Businesses
create jobs, not unions. Only
entrepreneurs, investors and
risk-takers can imagine new
products and services, expand
markets and hire workers.
The union leaders and liberal
pressure groups that are squeal-
ing in horror at Obama's pro-
business charm offensive don't
understand economics or poli-
tics or their own self-interest,
for that matter. Every American
who goes back to work in the
next 18 months improves the
economic recovery and the
president's chances of keeping
In truth, Obama can play only
a limited role here. Surging
deficits have severely dimin-
ished the appetite for more pub-
lic spending on Capitol Hill.
Even the targeted "investments"
he has proposed in educa-
tion, technology and infrastruc-
ture face an uphill fight.
But the president does have
three weapons he can deploy,
and the first is the power of
appointment. One key to eco-
nomic recovery is boosting
business confidence. And by
choosing William Daley (a for-
mer Wall Street executive and
Chamber board member) as his
new chief of staff, Obama sent a
strong signal across Lafayette
Square that the White House
was open to and for busi-
Obama's second asset is the
bully pulpit, which he can use in
several ways. At the Chamber,
he jawboned his business audi-
ence, urging them to "get in the
game" and start spending and
hiring again. And in a series of
trips around the country, he has
been playing cheerleader in
chief, highlighting economic
success stories and spreading
his message of patriotic
is the time to invest in
The.third front in the jobs war
is legislation, and here the focus
is on trade. As the president told
the Chamber, recent export
deals with India and China
could generate 250,000 new
domestic jobs, and a trade pact
with South Korea, now awaiting
congressional action, could add
Passing the Korean deal is
one of Obama's top priorities,
and in a meeting with reporters
right after his appointment,
Daley-made clear that the White
House had two goals in mind:
creating jobs for workers and
goodwill for the president. After
meeting with Republicans and
business executives, Daley said,
"All of them that I've talked to,
they all go right to Korea and
the trade issue." The reason:
"There's a belief ... that can help
the economy." -
Even though the Korean deal
is clearly in the national interest,
it faces plenty of hurdles. Sen.
Max Baucus, a Montana
Democrat, wants more conces-
sions to American beef produc-
ers. Republican leaders want to
link the Korean pact to two
more controversial agreements
- with Colombia and Panama
- that have been languishing
on Capitol Hill. And the left
wing of the Democratic Party is
trotting out their old protection-
ist scare tactics about "job
killing" trade pacts.
Obama can, and should,
brush these obstacles aside. And
he will have the Chamber of
Commerce, and many
Republicans, backing him up.
During his first two years in
office, Obama chose to push
many issues that business .
resented: wider health care cov-
erage, tighter financial and envi-
ronmental regulations. And
Republicans, because they were
shut out of power, could follow
a cynical (and successful) policy
of blaming the Democrats for
the economic crisis while doing
nothing to help solve it.
Now the plates of power have
shifted. Because Republicans
won the election, they share
authority and responsibility. The
president's agenda is far more
business friendly. And for a
brief moment at least, before the
2012 campaign heats up, a com-
mon purpose seems possible.
Obama must lead in cutting 'lethal' debt
BY MORTON KONDRACKE
Having failed to take the lead
on deficit and debt reduction in
his State of the Union address,
President Barack Obama had
better do so in his budget next
week or risk his whole "win
the future" agenda.
The danger is not only that
Republicans will oppose his
plans to increase education,
infrastructure and research
investment as mere "spending,"
but that, over time, the federal
debt will eat America's ability to
manage its future.
Republicans have a responsi-
bility, too'- to stop pretending
that budgets can be anywhere
near balanced with cuts in
domestic discretionary spending
alone, without tackling Social
Security, Medicare, Medicaid,
farm subsidies and tax loop-
Any number of Republicans'
and Democrats in Congress are
working often together to
contain the mounting debt bur-
den comprehensively, but they
don't have the blessing of either
Obama or GOP leaders.
The case for both sides to.step
up was made to me by one of
this town's most lucid budget
hawks, Maya MacGuineas of
the Committee for a Responsible
"The president is going to
have to get specific on the hard
choices needed, and it's going to
take a lot more than symbolic
discretionary cuts that save only
millions when we need to save
hundreds of billions," she said.
"And on the Republican side,
whatever happened to entitle-
ment reform? As they argue for
spending cuts, Republicans seem
to have wiped the words entitle-
ments from their vocabulary ,
not exactly a profile in courage."
MacGuineas' jab at the
Obama administration for going
after mere "millions" was a ref-
erence to an opinion piece in the
New York Times on Sunday in
which White House Budget
Director Jacob Lew cited only
community service and commu-
nity development block grants,
plus the Great Lakes Restoration
Initiative as being on the paring
(not chopping) block.
The cuts, which Lew
described as "painful," will save
just $775 million next year. The
deficit this year is $1.5 trillion,
and Republicans are talking
about cutting $45 billion from
current expenditures, with more
to come next year.
In his State of the Union,
Obama proposed to freeze dis-
cretionary spending for five
years, saving $400 billion over a
10-year period, but he gave short
shrift to the work of his own
debt commission, which pro-
posed savings of $4 trillion.
But as MacGuineas and others
point out, this estimate is opti-
mistic given the likelihood that
Bush tax cuts will be extended
after 2012, the alternative mini-
mum tax will be adjusted and
Medicare doctor payments
won't be cut, as the
Congressional Budget Office
had to project.
Her estimate is that the debt
will surpass 90 percent of the
gross domestic product, the
highest level since after World
Such projections are com-
monly referred to as "unsustain-
able" or "alarming." But at a
hearing of the Senate Budget
Committee last week, economist
Mark Zandi termed the trend
"I think, if you don't change
those forecasts in a substantive
way, our nation's living stan-
dards will be diminished for
generations to come. I think it
absolutely, positively has to
Senate Budget Chairman Kent
Conrad, D-N.D., and Sen. Tom
Coburn, R-Okla., both members
of the Obama debt commission,
are calling for a bipartisan sum-
mit to begin putting its recom-
mendations into effect.
Another bipartisan pair, Sens.
Mark Warner, D-Va., and Saxby
Chambliss, R-Ga., are making
A different approach is advo-
cated by Sens. Bob Corker, R-
Tenn., and Claire McCaskill, D-
Mo. They are proposing a bill to
put a "straitjacket" on federal
spending, drawing it down from
its current 24.6 percent of GDP
to 20.6 percent over 10 years.
Corker told me that his pro-
posal has "brute force elegance."
If Congress did not meet statuto-
ry spending limits, the Office of
Management and Budget would
automatically impose across-the-
board cuts in all federal pro-
Corker described his approach
as superior to attempting to dic-
tate specific cuts now because
that would likely lead to endless
haggling and no agreement. His
plan, he said, would demand
planned cuts in the future -
including entitlements and
save $7.6 trillion over 10 years.
As MacGuineas points out,
though, two flaws in the Corker
proposal are that it deals only
with spending, not tax loop-
holes, and it puts the spending
lid on at 20.6 percent of GDP,
which is a 40-year historical
average, but not enough in view
of the retirement costs of the
Still a third approach, con-
tained in nine different bills,
would amend the U.S.
Constitution to require a bal-
anced budget each year a
drastic step that would not only
take time to be adopted, if at all,
but would make it difficult to
fight recessions either with stim-
ulus spending or tax cuts.
So, there's lots of activity in
Congress on the budget front,
but so far Obama has not
weighed in to influence it.
Ideally, he would have laid
out guidelines in the State of the
Union message, perhaps calling
for a bipartisan "grand bargain"
of spending cuts and revenue
increases. The time for doing so
is getting short.

Scott to state workers:
My focus is private jobs
BY BRENDAN FARRINGTON
TALLAHASSEE Gov. Rick Scott on
Tuesday told the state employees whose
jobs may be among the most vulnerable to
budget cuts that his focus is on creating pri-
vate sector jobs and their agency is one he
heard complaints about while campaigning
Scott spoke to Department of
Community Affairs employees, many of
whom could be out of work if Scott carries
out his proposal to place the agency's func-
tions under the Department of
Environmental Protection. He said he'd do
whatever he could to help them find jobs
elsewhere in government.
But he also said the agency, which
enforces the state's growth-management
laws, is part of the problem when it comes
to attracting businesses to Florida.
"On the campaign trail, all they wanted to
complain about is how fast you guys did

Scott, who added in the same breath that he

Scott's proposal to cut corporate income
taxes would actually create jobs rather than
just line the pockets of business owners.
The Republican governor said his top
goal is creating private-sector jobs and that
government needs to shrink in size and cost.
The state also needs to get rid of regulations
that make it more. difficult to do business.
"If you're going to start a business, what
are you going to complain about? Why do
people complain about government? Here's
what they complain about: One, why are
there so many rules?" Scott said. "If you're
too much of a pain in the rear, I'll just go
That's why Texas is doing better than
Florida at attracting businesses, Scott said.

easier. I couldn't get an answer in Florida, I
got an answer in two days in Texas,'" said
Scott, a businessman who spent nearly $80
million of his and his wife's money to get
Ken Reecy, who is six months shy of 30
years of state service, said he was con-
cerned how a layoff combined with changes
in the pension plan might effect people so
close to retirement. He asked the governor
if there would be protections for people in
his situation. Scott said that he hadn't
thought about it, but he would.
Later, Reecy was asked by a reporter if
people at his agency were particularly con-
cerned about losing jobs because of the
governor's consolidation plans. A depart-
ment spokesman interrupted the interview
and said Scott's office told the agency not to'
talk about the subject.
Thomas Robinson, a Division of
Emergency Management employee who was
at the event, wasn't afraid to share his thoughts.
"I don't know any state worker in any
agency that's not concerned," he said.
"When you keep hearing that the problem
is government and you work in govern-
ment, why should you feel secure?"

ATLANTA Attorneys for a former

appeals court Tuesday to reverse his
bribery conviction from his subsequent
time as a local official, claiming a key trial
error compromised the verdict.
W.D. Childers' lawyers told the full 11th
U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals that his con-
viction should be overturned because his
legal team was denied the right to fully
cross- examine another Escambia County
commissioner who was a key witness for
The Pensacola Republican's conviction
stemmed from his actions as a county com-
missioner, where he was elected after 30
years in the state Senate. A state court jury
found him guilty of bribing a fellow com-
missioner, Willie Junior, in 2001 to vote for
a county land purchase.
Prosecutors say that Childers bribed
Junior with a cooking pot full of cash to
secure votes in favor of the county's pur-
chase of a soccer complex from a business-.

examined Junior for hours on the witness

Obama unveiled his fiscal blue-

The outline is a first step in what is
likely to be a bitter partisan fight as

Panel: FBI overstated science's
strength during anthrax probe
BY DAVID DISHNEAU
HAGERSTOWN, Md. -
Federal investigators over-
stated the strength of the sci-
entific evidence against a late
\rmy researcher blamed for
he anthrax mailings that
killed five people in 2001, a
panel of scientists said
Tuesday after an 18-month
review. However, the panel
didn't contradict the FBI's
conclusion that the Fort
Detrick, Md. researcher was
behind the letters.
The National Research
Council committee held a
briefing in Washington on its
170-page report, which
examines the novel microbial
forensic techniques used by
the FBI to determine that
Bruce Ivins acted alone in
making and sending the
The panel faulted govern-
ment assertions that the mail-
er must have had a high level
of technical skill and that the
parent material of the anthrax
strain used in the attacks had
to have come from a flask
that Ivins alone maintained.
"We find the scientific evi-
dence to be consistent with
their conclusions but not as
definitive as stated," said
Lehigh University President
Alice P. Gast, who chaired
the 16-member panel.
The FBI said in a written
statement that its conclusions
were based on a traditional
investigation as well as scien-
tific findings. The agency
said the science provided
leads but alone rarely solves
Gast declined to comment
on the guilt or innocence of
Ivins, who died of an appar-
ently intentional Tylenol
overdose in 2008 as the U.S.
Justice Department prepared
to indict him for the attacks.
He had denied involvement,
and his lawyer and some col-
leagues have maintained he
was an innocent man hound-
ed to self-destruction.
Early last year, the FBI
formally closed its investiga-
tion'into the anthrax letters
that unnerved a nation still
reeling from the 9/11 attacks,
saying it had concluded that
Ivins planned and executed
the mailings by himself.
Five people died in
October and November 2001
from anthrax inhalation or
exposure linked to the letters.
They were a Florida photo
editor, two postal workers in
Washington, a hospital
employee in New York City
and a 94-year-old woman in
Oxford, Conn. Seventeen
others were sickened.

Suit says BP
over safety issues
BY JUAN A. LOZANO
HOUSTON A former
official with BP's drilling
operations in the Gulf of
Mexico resigned just months
before last year's oil spill
because of disagreements
with the oil giant over its
commitment to safety,
according to a class-action
federal lawsuit related to the
Documents filed Monday
night in Houston claim
Kevin Lacy, BP's former
senior vice president for
drilling operations for the
Gulf of Mexico, reached a
mutual agreement with the
company to resign in
December 2009 because he
believed the company was
not adequately committed to
improving safety protocols
in offshore drilling opera-
tions to the level of its indus-
try peers. The Deepwater
Horizon rig explosion
occurred on April 20, 2010,
killing 11 workers and caus-
ing the worst oil spill in U.S.
The claims come in an
amended version of the law-
suit, originally filed last year,
that alleges BP inflated its
stock price by hiding infor-
mation and making false and
misleading statements about
its safety practices before the
Gulf of Mexico oil spill.
BP's stock value dropped
roughly in half following the
oil rig explosion and spill.
BP spokesman Daren
Beaudo declined to com-
ment on the lawsuit.
Public pension funds in
New York and Ohio are the
lead plaintiffs in the suit,
which also includes individ-
.ual investors and the
Oklahoma police pension
system. Similar lawsuits by
the different plaintiffs origi-
nally were filed in New
Orleans but were consolidat-
ed and moved to Houston
The amended complaint

ganization that began in
2007, which resulted in
numerous layoffs and cuts to
safety budgets, "would

Lebron, Heat welcome fan trash talk
BY CLIFF BRUNT
AP SPORTS WRITER
INDIANAPOLIS The booing
and heckling from capacity crowds
all over the country is like music to
Dw'yane Wade's ears.
The Miami Heat became villains to
many when LeBron James made his
nationally televised decision to leave
Cleveland and join superstars Wade
and Chris Bosh last summer. The
choice, and the showy way it went
down, didn't sit well with a lot of
NBA fans and they have made their
feelings known whenever the Heat
have hit the road.
Miami has the second-best record
in the Eastern Conference, but it has-
n't come with national adoration.
Miami doesn't often receive the
cheers teams such as the Los Angeles
Lakers and Boston Celtics get when
they are on the road. The Heat lead
the league in road attendance, draw-
ing an average of 19,289 fans in 29
games, but Wade hears mostly boos.
"Well, they're cheering for us, it
just sounds a little different," he
joked. "Sometimes, it might start
with a "B," but to us, it's cheering.
James' run-in with a heckler in
Detroit last Friday went beyond the
norm, and was the' latest example of
the general dislike NBA fans have
shown the Heat this season. James
told a fan to stop talking about his
family. A fan who says he was seated
near the heckler says James was
being taunted early in the game.
James, who has joked that the Heat
refer to themselves as the "Heatles"
after the Beatles for attracting big
crowds on the road, said something
to that fan while the Heat were shoot-
'ing free throws:

officer of that city's NFL team, the
Chiefs. Indeed, Funkhouser's two-
paragraph letter to Hunt uses phrases
throughout that echo the letter to
Goodell from Youngblood and Smith.
Mayors or city officials from at least
five sites of NFL teams have written
letters to the league or a club official to
argue against a lockout.
Goodell, meanwhile, indicated in an
op-ed piece that the 2011 regular sea-
son could be in jeopardy if the league
and union don't start "serious negotia-
tions" toward a new CBA soon.

Basketball, more than
most sports, puts fans close
to the action. Sometimes
that leads to unforgettable
situations like Reggie
Miller scoring 25 fourth-
quarter points while jawing
with Spike Lee during the
1994 playoff game
between the Pacers and the
Knicks at Madison Square

BY MARK LONG
AP SPOKtS WRITER
DAYTONA BEACH -
Kevin Harvick spent the last
decade avoiding dealing with
Dale Earnhardt's death.
He was closed off to team-
mates. He was detached
from fans. He was unwilling
to broach the delicate subject
with just about anyone.
With the anniversary of
Earnhardt's fatal crash loom-
ing at Daytona Intemrnational
Speedway, Harvick opened
up to teammates during a
Richard Childress Racing
dinner earlier this month.
With tears in his eyes and 10
years of emotion pouring
from his heart, Harvick
caught everyone by surprise.
And this much was clear:
Harvick finally has
embraced Earnhardt's lega-
"It's hard to be in the shad-
ow of somebody," teammate
Jeff Burton said. "There's no
way that Kevin Harvick steps
into that car after the tragedy
without being in his shadow.
You know, that's-hard. I don't
want to speak for Kevin, but
it takes a little while to sepa-
rate yourself from that."
It took years.
Harvick was 25 when
Eamrnhardt died on Feb. 18,
2001, in a final-lap wreck
during the Daytona 500. At
the time, Harvick was a bud-
ding star in NASCAR's sec-
ond-tier series. He envi-
sioned making the jump to
the Sprint Cup Series, but
never could have imagined it
happening the way it did.
Crew chief Kevin Hamlin
summoned Harvick to
Richard Childress' office in
the middle of night and asked
him to do the unthinkable-
replace Earnhardt. -
Harvick was woefully
"Instantly, it's like every-
body knows your name,
everybody knows what
you're doing, so you start
from the wrong end of the
spectrum and you don't have
time," Harvick said. "A lot of
times when you come into

period, I can go back and
watch the video, but I could-
n't tell you one thing that
sAck out'from that particular
day because there were so
many things happening.
"I know it should be some-
thing I remember for the rest
of my life, but there were so
many different emotions and
so many things happening,
and to throw the win on top
of that, you didn't know
whether to be happy or sad.
He won again that season
but found mixed results in
the years that followed. He
did, however, develop his
own brash style and reputa-
tion. He became known as
the Instigator a derisive
play on Eamrnhardt's famed
nickname the Intimidator -
and may have turned off
some Eamrnhardt loyalists.
And while Harvick didn't
always see eye-to-eye with
Childress on the direction the
team, any disagreements
seemed to bring them closer
They got really tight in
2010 as Harvick contended
for the title. He finished third
in points, remaining in a tight
race 'until the finale in
Homestead. His success
from last season, along with
the 10 years that have passed,
have helped him come to
terms with replacing
Eamrnhardt and accepting his
leadership role at RCR.
His speech proved that to
"That was different. But
he was serious. I can promise
you that," teammate Clint
Bowyer said. "It's been a big
part of his life. Obviously his
career is because of

will never escape Earnhardt's
shadow. Arid he's fine with it

NEA Crossword Puzzle
Husband abusing drugs
Dear Annie: My husband and I are in our
early 40s. We've been married for 13 years and
have two young, beautiful, healthy children that
I thank God for every day.
After many years of marriage, I found out
quite unexpectedly that my husband has been a
drug user on and off for a long time. It came out
when he finally went for help. Due to the drugs,
we lost everything. We had to uproot our chil-
dren from the only home they've known in
order to find a more affordable place
to live. His drug use has put the
family ina lot of pain and turmoil,
and he vowed he would never use
again. For a while, everything
seemed good. But it didn't.last. .
We are a month behind in our tt '
rent, and I fear my husband is -
using again. He does not come \ g
home for days at a time and for-
gets to call. When he shows up,-
there's always some lame excuse about
where he's been and where the money went.
I will not argue in front of the children,
and talking to him hasn't helped. I am scared\
for our security and his health. I can't take the
lies anymore. He refuses help and insists he's
not using. I have no other family and cannot
support us on my own. I fear for our future and
don't know what to do. Desperate
Dear Desperate: First contact Nar-Anon (nar-
anon.org) for families and friends of drug users.
If you belong to a church or synagogue, talk to
your clergy about counseling and community
programs. You may need government assis-
tance temporarily, and also look into job train-
ing and housing opportunities through state and
city agencies. Whatever your husband is doing,
he is not reliable as a father or partner, and you
will have to step up to the plate as best you can.
Dear Annie:. My son showed me the
Facebook page of a 20-year-old acquaintance
who is expecting a baby with her boyfriend. An
ultrasound showed that the baby was seriously
brain damaged and would likely die at birth.
. This gal named her unborn baby and
created a website journal of her pregnancy.
Some of the entries were about her
doctor appointments and shop-
\ ping for a funeral home. Others
"i. were rants about fights with her
S boyfriend and his forays with
other women. Her page includes
professionally taken photo-
graphs of her lifting her shirt to
expose her very pregnant belly.
\\ I was appalled at the publi-
cizing of such a heart-wrench-
ing, private situation. Am I just
old-fashioned? A Private.
Dear Private: The fact that something so
personal is put into cyberspace and broadcast to
everyone is, unfortunately, a common occur-
rence these days among young people who
have no concept of privacy (or good taste).
What used to go into a locked diary is now fod-
der for the world. However, this girl is going
through a sad and difficult time, and sharing her
story undoubtedly brings her comfort.
By Phillip Alder
C.S. Lewis wrote; "Even in literature and art, no man who both-
ers about originality will ever be original: whereas if you simply try
to tell the truth (without caring twopence how often it has been told
before), you will, nine times out of 10, become original without
ever having noticed it."
The winning play in today's deal is not original, and will not
work nearly as often as nine times out of 10. But when you have
nothing else to guide you, following the advice of the mathemati-
cians will hold you in good stead.
How should South try to make three no-trump after West leads
the spade queen?
With nine points and no five-card suit, North raised to two no-
trump to invite game. South, with 16 points and a five-card suit,
had no hesitation in bidding game. (If you use two no-trump as a
transfer response, you must invite game by first responding two
clubs, then rebidding two no-trump, which would not promise a
four-card major. There is one other wrinkle here. If the bidding
starts one no-trump two clubs two hearts, the responder rebids
two spades with four spades and game-invitational values.
South has six top tricks: two spades, two hearts and two clubs.
Since it is unlikely that declarer can establish a diamond trick, he
should play for five club winners. The odds tables say that a 2-2
split is slightly more likely than a successful second-round finesse
through West (a priori, it is 31.03 percent to 28.45 percent), so
South should cash his club king, then play a club to dummy's ace.

LOUISVILLE, Ky. -
Louisville coach Rick Pitino
has seen hundreds of games in
Madison Square Garden dur-
ing his 35 years in coaching.
There's little doubt which
one makes the basketball
purist in him cringe the most:
Cincinnati's bruising 69-66
victory over the Cardinals in
last year's Big East tourna-
Pitino called it "the ugliest
game" ever played at the
"They shot poorly and we
gave up 28 offensive
rebounds," Pitino said with a
Play the game on either pro-
gram's home gym and it
would fit right in, however.
That's the way it has always
been between the longtime
Players change, coaches-
change, conference affiliations
change, but the ferocity of
their annual showdowns does
Even as Louisville has
soared and the Bearcats strug-
gled since the two teams
joined the Big East in 2005 -
Louisville is 67-31 in confer-
ence play while the Bearcats
are just 33-53 the Cardinals
(19-6, 8-4 Big East) hold just a
4-3 lead against Cincinnati
(19-6, 6-6) heading into
Wednesday's pivotal game.
Though allowing the game
has lost a bit of its luster from.
the days when the Cardinals
and Bearcats were battling for
control of Conference USA
and the Metro Conference
before that, the intensity hasn't
waned a bit.
"They play great defense,
they're very physical," Pitino
said. 'I think the talent on each
side matches up very well
against each other."
Pitino expects another tight
game this time, then again,
why expect anything else
from the Cardinals at this-
point in the season. Eight of
Louisville's last nine games
have been decided by five
points or less or in overtime.
Remarkably, Louisville is
5-3 in those games despite
being labeled a "finesse"
team by its coach. Pitino cred-
ited his team's mental tough-
ness and the selfless leader-
ship of senior captain Preston
Knowles for keeping the
Cardinals grounded and grit-
Knowles' effect on his
younger teammates hasn't
been lost on Cincinnati coach
Mick Cronin, who spent two '
years as an assistant at
Louisville under Pitino a
"Their leader doesn't care
about anything but winning,"
Cronin said. "Their leader
doesn't let their guys run to the
locker room to run and check
the box score."
It hasn't been quite as
smooth a ride for the Bearcats,
who have dropped three of
four while Cronin deals with
enigmatic junior forward

Judge will allow
recording in trial
BY PAUL ELAS
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
SAN FRANCISCO A federal judge in the
perjury case against Barry Bonds on Tuesday
decided to allow an audio recording in which,
prosecutors say, the baseball star's personal
trainer discussed his steroids use.
Bonds' lawyers had asked the judge to exclude
the recording from his upcoming trial on charges
that he lied to a grand jury when he said he never
knowingly took performance-enhancing drugs.
They argued that since the personal trainer, Greg
Anderson, is refusing to testify, there's, no way to
authenticate the topic of discussion.
But prosecutors plan on calling to the witness
stand Stevie Hoskins, Bonds' childhood friend
and former business partner. Hoskins says he
secretly recorded the conversation in March 2003
to convince Bonds' father that his son was taking
The trial is scheduled to start March 21.
The judge also on Tuesday refused to throw out
one of the five charges alleging Bonds lied to a
grand jury in December 2003 when he testified
he never knowingly took steroids.
His lawyers complained that the charge was
too vague. The charge alleges Bonds' testimony
obstructed the grand jury's investigation into

New proof of
BY RUKMM CALUMACHI
ABIDJAN, Ivory Coast The
entrance to the morgue is like a
mouth through which comes an
awful smell. It hits you as far back
as the parking lot and makes your
eyes water. From a dozen yards
away, it's strong enough to make
you throw up.
What lies inside is proof of mass
killings in this once-tranquil country
of 21 million, where the sitting pres-
ident is refusing to give way to his
successor..Nearly every day since
Laurent Gbagbo was declared the
loser of the Nov. 28 election, the
bodies of people who voted for his
opponent have been showing up on
the sides of highways.
Their distraught families have
gone from police station to police
station looking for them, but the
bodies are hidden in plain sight in
morgues turned into mass graves.
Records obtained by The
Associated Press from four of the
city's nine morgues show that at
least 113 bullet-ridden bodies have
been brought in since the election.
The number is likely much higher
because the AP was refused access
to the five other morgues, including
one where the United Nations
believes as many as 80 bodies were
The bodies are being held
hostage and not released to families.
Morgue workers say government
minders are stationed outside to
monitor what goes in or out.
A list of the dead that the AP was
allowed to see on the laptop of a
company that manages three down-
town morgues shows the bodies
began arriving Dec. 1, the night the
country's electoral commission was
due to announce that opposition
leader Alassane Ouattara had won.
The AP also saw legal documents
from authorities instructing funeral
'homes to pick up bodies found on
public roads, and the paperwork
handed to families.
The names of the dead indicate
they are largely Muslim and from
the country's north, the demograph-
ic that voted in largest numbers for
Ouattara, himself a Muslim from
"The overwhelming number of
victims of political violence in
Abidjan were either real or per-
ceived supporters of Ouattara," said
Human Rights Watch senior
researcher Corinne Dufka, the
author of a report on the post-elec-
tion violence. "Many were picked
up and killed simply on the basis of
their family name."
Families have been allowed
inside the morgues only long
enough to identify their relatives, if
at all. They cannot take their loved
ones for burial because the govern-
ment, still controlled by Gbagbo,
has not given the go-ahead for
autopsies on bodies with bullet
wounds. Funeral home directors say
the procedure is normally approved
within 48 hours.
Diaby Madoussou, 40, has been
waiting for two months. She found
her husband lying face down on the
pavement where he had taken part
in a march to support Ouattara, rec-
ognized internationally as the win-
ner of the vote. Ouattara now lives
in a hotel under 24-hour United
Nations protection, its lobby crowd-
ed with supporters taking refuge.
Madoussou turned over her hus-
band's body. He had been shot
twice in the ribs.
She took off her pagne and used
the wraparound skirt to cover him.
She waited beside him wearing only
her underclothes until the morgue
sent a car to pick up the body. They
handed her a 'fiche d'entree,' or
entry sheet stating that his body
would be stored in vault No. 50 in a
morgue in the outlying suburb of
'They told me that I need to leave
the body there. At the morgue. They
say I need to wait ... I don't under-
stand. Why won't they let me take
him?" said Madoussou, who has
five children. She now spends her
days on the floor, her back against
the concrete wall of her living room,
her eyes staring at the other wall.
Many families have only this
piece of paper to prove that their
loved ones were killed, because
police stations are refusing to file
police reports. Dozens of victims
were seen dragged from their
homes and forced into official vehi-

committing any abuses. However,
assistant state prosecutor Jean-
Claude Aboya conceded that autop-
sies have not been conducted.
"We're aware of these bodies
in the morgues," said Aboya.
"The chief prosecutor has told us
that there will be an investigation,
but he's holding off until things
are calmer before proceeding."
Bodies have also been found
on highways, freeway medians
and trash heaps, and in the
lagoons coursing through this
palm-lined commercial capital
that was once considered among
the most stable in Africa.
It has been anything but that
since Gbagbo came to power 10
years ago. He signed an alphabet
soup of treaties named after the
numerous capitals from Lome to
Pretoria to Ouagadougou where
mediators tried to coax Gbagbo
to hold an election. He succeeded
in pushing back the election for
five years until it was finally held
Berlusconi defiant against prosecution

Premier Silvio Berlusconi defiant-

of trying to topple his government
by seeking to put him on trial on
charges he had sex with a 17-year-
old girl and then tried to cover it
The sex scandal has splashed
salacious details and allegations of
wild parties at Berlusconi's villas
across newspaper front pages for
weeks and drawn the ire of the
Though no stranger to legal
cases, this is the first judicial
action against the three-time pre-
mier and media billionaire to
impugn his personal conduct,
rather than his business dealings.
The case raises questions about
Berlusconi's ability to govern
effectively under mounting legal
pressure, and comes at a time when
he has been weakened by a fight
with an ex-ally.
Prosecutors allege Berlusconi,
, 74, paid for sex with the Moroccan
girl, nicknamed Ruby, who has
since turned 18, then used his
influence to get, her out of police
custody when she was detained for
the unrelated suspected theft of
3,000 ($4,103). They allege that
he feared her relationship to him
would be revealed.
Ruby was released into the cus-

of the prosecutors' actions.
"I wonder who's going to pay
for these activities, which, in my
humble view, only have a subver-

Berlusconi said prosecutors had
smeared not just his name but that

Tuesday carting in tents
and raising banners in a
bold attempt to copy Egypt's
uprising and force high-level
changes in one of
Washington's key allies in
The move by de'monstra-

clashes across the tiny island
kingdom that left at least two
people dead, parliament in
limbo by an opposition boy-
cott and the king making a
rare address on national tele-
vision to offer condolences
for the bloodshed.
Security forces appar-
ently under orders to hold
back watched from the

nation's ruling sheiks and
called for sweeping political
reforms and an end to monar-
chy's grip on key decisions
and government posts.
The unrest in Bahrain,

Washington's worries in the
