Southerland says no more continuing resolutions

Floridian Staff Writer

U.S. Rep. Steve Southerland, R-
Panama City, held a town hall meet-
ing in Marianna on Monday evening.
Monday's session at the agriculture
center on U.S. Highway 90 was one
of three town hall meetings the rep-
resentative scheduled in North Flor-
ida this week.
Working with a Power Point pre-
sentation, Southerland offered infor-
mation about the national debt, and
how he.believes it will be impacted

by programs supported by President
Barack Obama. Southerland likened
the president's plan to the tsunami
that rolled into Japan following the
recent earthquake there. His accom-
panying chart showed he believes
the president's spending plan would
increase the national debt, peaking
at a 700 to 800 percent increase in
the national debt by 2081, if it were
to continue on its current track. The
congressman projected the debt
would grow by $10 trillion by that
* Southerland said he is concerned

that 47 percent of the national debt
is owned by foreign interests, a situ-
ation he said that leaves China as the
primary lender in control of Ameri-
ca's future.
"America will be slave to China;
that's where we're headed," Souther-
land said, if the president's "spend-
ing spree" is left unchecked. South-
erland feels the president's policy is
to "spend our way out of debt," and
he doesn't share that strategy.
Southerland felt the- better route

Gift allows hospital to expand

This is part of a 5.5-acre tract of land on U.S. Highway 90 that was donated to Jackson Hospital by Fred Compagni.

Resident Fred Compagni donates 5.5-acre parcel of land

Floridan Staff Writer

Jackson Hospital has been given a
5.5-acre parcel of land in a prime loca-
tion, and expects to decide this sum-
mer what it will do with the property.
The land is located on U.S. Highway
90, across the road from the Hopkins
dealership. Jackson Hospital CEO
Larry Meese said Tuesday the hospital
is grateful for the gift from Fred Com-
pagni, and for the chance to expand its
services to that part oftown.
The building currently on the site,
which at different times had served as
a truck stop, motel and gas station, will
be razed to make way for whatever the
hospital decides to build.

Meese noted that the size of the prop-
erty would be suitable for a clinic or
similar health care facility, but stressed
that the particular use has not been de-
He said the matter will be taken up in
discussions this summer, as the hospi-
tal sets its 2012 budget.
Compagni said he bought the prop-
erty as a real estate investment after he
moved here from New York to retire in
1987. He sold it once, but reclaimed it
when the buyer defaulted on the deal.
He said he bought several pieces of
property through the years, but that
he's reached the point in life that he's
ready to shed some'of his holdings.
Compagni said he gave this parcel to
the hospital in hopes that it could use

the property for the good ofthe com-
munity and to help the hospital itself.
"I wish them well," he said.
In a press release about Compagni's
donation, Jackson Hospital said he had
"created a living legacy for the commu-
nity with his generous gift."
"Jackson Hospital is growing to bet-
ter meet the needs of our community,"
Meese was quoted as saying. "We have
expanded key services, and now have
30 board-certified physicians on staff."
Meese said Compagni's. donation
will help the hospital expand its pres-
ence even further into the community.
Jackson Hospital established a clinic
in Sneads a few months ago, and has
partnerships with physicians through-
out the community.

Local officials recall mention of airport project

The Associated Press

TALLAHASSEE Former Florida
House Speaker Ray Sansom's co-defen-
dant once mentioned that an airplane
hangar at the heart of the criminal case
against the two men was being rebrand-
ed as an "educational facility" in an effort
to get state money that wasn't flowing
through another channel, Destin's city
manager testified Tuesday.
And in other testimony, Okaloosa
County's top emergency manager told
jurors that the co-defendant, Jay Odom,
had said he knew "how to get money
from the state."
The Panhandle-area government of-
ficials took the stand as the state's wit-
Sansom, 48, is charged with arranging

to wrongfully get a $6 million appropria-
tion in the 2007 state budget. That mon-
ey was to build a hangar at the Destin
airport at co-defendant Odom's request,
prosecutors say. The hangar reportedly
was for Odom's business use.
Odom, 54, is a developer, jet service
owner and major Republican Party do-
Both men are charged with grand theft
and conspiracy to commit grand theft.
Defense attorneys have argued that the
project was always intended as a hurri-
cane-proof emergency operations cen-
ter, or EOC, with room for large vehicles
inside the city of Destin.
City Manager Greg Kisela testified
,about talking to Odom around the time
of the state's 2007 legislative session.
Odom mentioned that a "community

budget issue request" for the. facility
wasn't going through. Instead, it would
be funded with money earmarked for
public educational buildings.
James Judkins, Odom's lawyer, showed
jurors a copy of the request, with Sen.
Don Gaetz, R-Niceville, as sponsor.
The request was for a 30,400-square-
foot "full service emergency operations
center", showing that it would cost $10
million $6 million from the state, with
$4 million coming from somewhere else.
The request does not mention. Odom
by name, but does refer to a "public-pri-
vate partnership."
State AttorneyWillie Meggs has said the
scheme was to have Northwest Florida
State College build the hangar with that

Court House

Coffee Shoppe

closing doors;

blames city
Floridan Staff Writer

The owner of the Court House Coffee
Shoppe, Mary Lou Patmore, announced
Tuesday she is closing her downtown
Marianna restaurant for good.
Patmore said a combination of fac-
tors outside her control have affected
her business and ultimately lead to its
demise, including the City of Marian-
na being slow at moving forward with
plans for improvements discussed be-
tween the two.
But Marianna City.Manager Jim Dean
said Tuesday, "I don't know if it's fair to
say the reason (Patmore's)] business is
struggling is because of the city."
"There have been a lot of businesses
in the community that have been im-
pacted by. the economy over the last
three years," Dean ,'aiB.
He also added that nothing has
changed at Patmore's facility from the
time she bought it, except the city was
able to put Community Development
Block Grant funds into the downtown
Patmore closed the restaurant once
before, this time last year, when the
city's downtown revitalization project
and related road work made it nearly
impossible for customers to reach her
restaurant, she said. Patmore reopened
the coffee shop, located at the corner
of Madison and Marion streets south
of the Jackson County Courthouse, full
time in January.
In February, at a Marianna city com-
mission meeting, Patmore addressed
the commissioners to express concern
and ask for help with the problems her
business was facing, including a lack of
parking and signage.
Before the city's road work, customers
parked on city property, in the grass, on
the north side of the business on MIar-
ion Street. Now, there are new curbs
customers don't want to drive over to
access the parking area, Patmore said
in February.
Dean said the curb is low-grade and
people can drive over it and still park in

CHE 4-H Eureka Club builds bottle blasters

Special to the Floridan

The Chipola Home Educators 4-H Eure-
ka Science Club held its monthly meeting
March 17 at the Jackson County Exten-
sion Office. The "Junk Box Wars" theme
continued this month, with "bottle blast-
ers" being the meeting's focus.
Students, divided in to three teams,
were given time to work together and
construct their devices prior to a compe-
tition. To build its blaster, each team was
given a box filled with "junk" materials:
dowel rods. PVC pipe, rubber bands, sur-
gical supply tubing, mousetrap, spoons,
string, plastic cups, masking tape, in-
dex cards, pipe cleaners, a hot glue gun,
wooden craft sticks and CDs. Teams were
allowed to use all or only some of the ma-
terials, but not allowed to share materials
with other teams.
Students were instructed to create
blasters that were slinging devices, such
as catapults or sling shots, which were
powered only by the energy in the elastic
devices, not by a helping hand or extra
push. Teams were allowed to secure their
creations to the table with the masking
tape, if desired.
Each team was allowed five minutes to
prepare for each of their three trials, mak-
ing repairs or modifications with their re-
maining materials. Balls were launched at
bottles resting on a platform four meters

away. Each bottle represented a specified
number of points.
Each team's designated "launcher" was
given two minutes to continuously shoot
the balls at the bottles, while remaining
team members retrieved the balls to be
shot again. The team with the most points
at the end was declared the winner.
For this competition, Teams 1 and 2 tied
with 100 points, while Team 3 earned 50
points. Team 1 included TaylorYoung, Ra-
ven Bagy, Rebekah Edwards, Jacob Hayes,
and Noah McArthur; Team 2 had Michael
Young, Wade Robinson, Sarah Young,
Zarren Bagy and Tabitha Edwards; and in
Team 3 were Alexis Bagy, Mason Young,
Jared Robinson and Quinn Bagy.
The 4-H Eureka Club's next meeting will
be April 14 in the of the Jackson County
Extension Office auditorium, where the
students hold their annual Science Fair.
4-H is the youth development program
of the Florida Cooperative Extension Ser-
vice and the University of Florida's Insti-
tute of Food and Agricultural Sciences. It
is open to all youth between the ages of
five and 18.

4-H or starting a 4-H club, contact the

Orange & Bluegrass

Festival on April16

Special to.the Floridan

The Second Annual Or-
ange & Bluegrass Festival
will take place in Vernon
on Saturday, April 16, at
The Groves RV Resort.
The Vernon High School
Boosters fundraiser will
feature area bluegrass
and gospel music artists.
Organizers expect to draw
hundreds of music fans
from around the South-
"With the deep cuts in
funding across the board,
we have had to get cre-
ative about how to fund
the sports activities at the
high school.
In order to allow our
children to enjoy the
sports programs and
other activities, we have
formed a coalition of par-
ents who really care about
the future, of these kids,
and we are fortunate to
have some parents who
are willing to work hard
to make these things
happen," said Mark Kirk,
president of the Vernon
High School Boosters.
Many people don'tknow
the origin of the orange
and royal blue colors of
Vernon High School, said

"Several years ago when.
we needed football uni-
forms, the University of
Florida donated a quanti-
ty of used uniforms, obvi-
ously bearing the orange
and blue colors of the Ga-
tors. Out of respect and
in remembrance of this,
the Vernon High football
colors remain orange and
blue, and we hope that
they know how much we
appreciate the gesture
and what it meant to our
football program."
Located in Vernon, The
Groves can accommo-
date RVs of all sizes. More
information about the
site can be found online

Admission to the festival

Our Opinion

An abundance

of caution
he news in Sunday's paper was disheartening.
Two church volunteers have been charged with
allegedly luring a 13-year-old into an inappropri-
ate relationship.
It's sad to say, but it must be said these things hap-
pen even here in Jackson County.
It has also become an unfortunate reality that anyone
who is in a position to have regular access to young
children and teens needs not only to be trustworthy,
but also to be screened. Schools and daycare centers
are required to do background checks on employees.
Other organizations, however, don't. Many feel that
they know their volunteers and workers well enough
that such checks aren't necessary.
We don't advocate requiring every church, extra-
curricular and youth organization to do background
checks. But it's not a bad idea. It won't weed out every
potential problem, but it would make some predators
think twice. And in cases where someone has a history,
it would allow the organization to take the appropriate
steps to protect children.
It will, no dbubt, be a hassle and an expense for some
organizations. But better safe than sorry.

Quake mustn't trigger nuclear-phobia


Never agree with Rush Lim-
baugh about anything, but
here's an exception: The main-
stream media habitually spreads
panic in the population. Right
now, it's about the safety of nuclear
The danger of a meltdown at
Japan's Fukushima Daiichi reactors
is real, but the media made it a "cri-
sis" from the get-go. The NewYork ,
Times said the crisis had "veered
toward catastrophe."
And on MSNBC's "Morning
Joe" on Wednesday, co-host Mika
Brzezinski opined it might prove
"apocalyptic," which is to say,
In California, alarmed people
have started stocking up on po-
tassium iodide to guard against
radioactivity-induced cancer even
though 5,000 miles of ocean sepa-
rate them from Japan.
The real threat here is that
nuclear-phobia will take hold in the
United States as happened follow-
ing the partial meltdown and radio-
active release at Three Mile Island
in 1979, resulting in no new nuclear
plant construction for 30 years.
As Sen. Lamar Alexander, R-
Tenn., said in a speech on Mon-
day, "today 104 civilian reactors
produce 20 percent of America's
electricity and 70 percent of our
clean electricity.
"Without nuclear power, it is
hard to imagine how the United
States, which uses up 25 percent of
all the energy in the world, could
produce enough cheap, reliable
clean energy to keep our economy
going and keep our jobs from going
The good news is that the Obama
administration is not running away
from its support of loan guaran-
tees for new nuclear facilities,
and nuclear power has significant
Republican support.
It also has been gaining public
support, with 62 percent of U.S.
adults favoring nuclear power in a
2010 Gallup poll.
As Energy Secretary Steven Chu
testified this week, the United

States "naturally" will thoroughly
study the lessons of Japan's experi-
ence and try to ensure that existing
and planned new plants are safe.
That should especially apply to
two California nuclear reactors
located near seismic faults.
But opponents of nuclear power
are seizing on the disaster in Japan
caused by a gigantic tsunami
triggered by the fourth-most-
powerful earthquake in recorded
history to stop nuclear power in
its tracks.
That Would compound the lack of
a coherent U.S. energy policy that
has resulted from polarized U.S.
Republicans (and some Demo-
crats) are determined to maintain
fossil fuels oil, natural gas and
coal as the mainstays of U.S.
energy for as long as possible.
They pooh-pooh evidence that
fossil fuels cause global climate
change and are trying to defuhd
conservation and alternative en-
ergy programs.
Meantime, most Democrats (but
hardly any Republicans) think the
world is menaced by global warm-
ing and are determined to close
down the carbon economy and
substitute wind, solar and other
"renewables" for oil, gas and coal.
The public is confused and
divided about what to think.
According to a March Gallup poll,
only 51 percent down from 66
percent three years ago are "wor-
ried" about global warming.
That includes 72 percent of Dem-
ocrats (who also think it's caused by
human activity).
Only 31 percent of Republi-
cans, two-thirds of whom think
(with Limbaugh) that its serious-
ness is exaggerated by the news
Sixty percent favor increasing off-
shore drilling for oil (83 percent of
Republicans, 40 percent of Demo-
crats) while a whopping 83 percent
say Congress should pass an energy
bill that provides incentives for
solar and other alternative energy
as a top priority.
Actually, the public may have it
right, given $4-a-gallon gasoline

and possible oil disruptions in the
Mideast. The fact is that, for the
foreseeable future, the U.S. will
primarily depend on fossil fuels for
its energy, so domestic production
should be increased.
But longer term, cleaner fuels
make sense. Global warming is
a fact the polar ice caps are
melting though it's debatable
whether the consequences will be
as dire as worst-casers like Al Gore
maintain. A carbon tax would en-
courage new energy sources.
Clearly, expansion of nuclear
power should be part of the solu-
tion. Utilities now find it cheaper to
use natural gas as fuel, so govern-
ment loan guarantees not direct
subsidies are needed to get
plants built. They cost, on average,
$6 billion.
But once they are built if they
are built they produce energy
at a much cheaper long-run cost
than any other fuel. It's why nuclear
accounts for 80 percent of France's
electricity generation and coal-rich
China is building 27 new nuclear
As Alexander said in his Senate
speech, "the United States invented
nuclear power, but ... of the 65 reac-
tors under construction around
the world, only one is in the United
States," part of the Tennessee Valley
Authority anchored in his state.
He pointed out that "no one has
ever died from a nuclear accident
at any of our commercial or naval
reactors," including the Three Mile
Island incident, which led to vast
upgrades in safety oversight.
And, he said, while nuclear
energy has risks, "it is also impor-
tant to remember that we do not
abandon highway systems because
bridges and overpasses collapse
.during earthquakes...
"We cannot stop drilling after a
tragic oil spill unless we want to
rely more on foreign oil, run up our
prices, turn our oil drilling over to
a few big companies and all our oil
hauling to leaky tankers."
That's on the mark. America
needs a do-it-all energy policy, and
if nuclear isn't part of it, we will be

Letter to the Editor

Firefighters getting stiffed by the state

I am writing this letter out of
concern for the state employees of
Florida. I am employed with the
Florida Division of Forestry as a
forest ranger-wildland firefighter. I
was recently sent to south Florida
and assigned to the Ironhorse fire,
which consumed 17,500 acres of
forest land as well as a home and
numerous other out buildings.
While assigned to this incident,
we worked long hours, usually 14
to 16 hours a day, trying to con-
tain this fire. While in the com-
munity of Titusville and Oak Hill,
the people there really made us all
feel welcome and very proud to be
firefighters, by thanking us on a
daily basis for the job we were there
to do. I recall the first morning we
were on our way to the fire and
there were several people in the
Oak Hill community standing on
the roadside holding signs they had
made that said, "Were praying for
your safety" and "Thank you." This
gave us a great feeling about what
we were there to do.
None of us who work as forest
rangers do our jobs to be heroes.

We do it because we love what we
do. While there in central Florida, I
saw so many of my fellow firefight-
ers go above and beyond there call
of duty. There was one incident
where several firefighters found an
elderly lady living in an old house
in the woods. She had no electricity
or food. All of these guys gave the
lady their lunch so she would have
food for several days. There were
numerous other incidents that
occurred like this one, and they
thought nothing of sacrificing to
help others.
While we were there, a rumor was
floating around that we were not
going to get paid for our overtime.
When we returned to our home
units, we were informed that this
was not a rumor, it was true. The
firefighters on the frontlines will
not be paid for their overtime.
These folks are away from their
families and homes in very hazard-
ous conditions, putting their lives
in jeopardy for others and this is
the thanks they get for their hard
work and dedication.
These guys are being sent home

and are not being paid for the time
they have earned. They are only
being hours off for the extra hours
they worked. This is wrong. What is
our state government coming to?
We take care of the management,
and put the people at the bottom
off to the side. We are already the
lowest paid fire agency in the state.
A starting ranger makes $24,597 a
year; compared to other state and
county agencies, this is very low.
I hope that other state employ-
ees will stand up for what is right
without fear of retaliation from the
state. I was told when I questioned
this matter by some senior fire-
fighters that they had been treated
this way many times and I didn't
need to say anything to upset the
higher ups. I hope and pray that
other state employees will take a
stand for what is right. I ask folks
that if you believe this is wrong,
please make a phone call or send
an e-mail to your state representa-
tive or the Division of Forestry and
let them know how you feel.

A perfect GOP candidate is hard to find

The Associated Press

Romney is the godfather
of what Republican crit-
ics call Obamacare. Newt
Gingrich is an adulterer
on his third marriage. Tim
Pawlenty is too green -
environmentally, that is.
Jon Huntsman worked
for President Barack
Obama. And Haley Barbo-
ur has come off as dismis-
sive of racial segregation.
Is any potential Republi-
can presidential nominee
without vulnerabilities
that could alienate vot-
ers, especially those in the
GOP primaries, and pro-
vide ready-made attacks
for opponents?
Not in this crop.
The 2012 Republican
field is deeply flawed, lack-
ing a serious GOP con-
tender without a personal
misstep or policy move
that angers the party base.
Each of those weighing
bids has at least one issue
that looms as an obstacle
to White House ambitions,
and that could derail the
candidate if not handled
with care.
That explains why the
would-be candidates are
trying to confront their
troubles early on, just as
the nomination fight gets
under way. They'll have
to answer for black marks
on their records and
insulate themselves from
criticism repeatedly be-
tween now and early next
year when voters cast the
first caucus ballot.
Their aides are trying to
figure out how to weather
the attacks likely to show
up in mailings, ohline or in
television ads; responses
are likely to be included
in media interviews, de--
bate appearances and,
perhaps, even in major
speeches. Aides also are
studying and testing
- the best ways to exploit
their opponents' weak-

nesses. Already, Intnmet
sites like Facebook, Twitter
and YouTube are magnify-
ing their woes, and every
embarrassing document,
speech or utterance is cer-
tain to appear online.
Candidates can't simply
ignore their flaws or ob-
stacles; their challengers
certainly won't.
Just ask Democrat John
Kerry. He was vexed in
2004 by questions about
his service in Vietnam and
about his reputation as an
elitist. Only after widely
debunked claims about his
Vietnam record started to
sink his poll numbers did
the campaign effectively
respond and by then it
was too late.
"You really have to drive
the boat into the fire and
be fearless about your re-
cord," said Michael Mee-
han, a Democratic consul-
tant on Kerry's campaign.
Romney, for one, has
started to address his big-
gest policy problem: the
health care plan he signed
into law as Massachusetts
governor, which Obama
and the Democrats used as
the basis for their national
overhaul plan. The White
House gleefully points out
the similarities.
"Our experiment wasn't
perfect some things
worked, some didn't, and
some things I'd change,"
Romney said recently in
New Hampshire. But, he
added, "one thing I would
never do is to usurp the
constitutional power of
states with a one-size-fits-
all federal takeover."
Romney also will face
a repeat of the 2008 criti-
cism that he's inauthentic,
particularly after a series of
reversals on gay rights and
other social issues.
Gingrich's two failed
marriages are well-known;

them may not be and pres-

sexual encounters with a
White House intern. He
married that mistress, 23
years his junior. Callista
Gingrich is prominently
featured in his campaign,
appearing with him at
events and on his website.
He was widely mocked
for this recent explana-
tion about his infidel-
ity: "There's no question at
times of my life, partially
driven by how passionate-
ly I felt about this country,
that I worked far too hard
and things happened in

It remains to be seen
whether Republicans heed
his plea and focus on the
future. "If the primary
concern of the American
people is my past," he has
said, "my candidacy would
be irrelevant."

trifecta of issues that make
some skeptical. So he owns

100 years after Triangle fire, horror resonates

The Associated Press

a warm spring Saturday
when dozens of immigrant
girls and women leapt to
their deaths some with
their clothes on fire, some
holding hands as hor-
rified onlookers watched
the Triangle Shirtwaist fac-
tory burn.
The March 25, 1911, fire
that killed 146 workers
became a touchstone for
the organized labor move-
ment, spurred laws that re-
quired fire drills and shed
light on the lives of young
immigrant workers near
the turn of the century.
The 100th anniversary
comes as public workers in
Wisconsin, Ohio and else-
where protest efforts to
limit collective bargaining
rights in response to state
budget woes. Labor leaders
and others say one need
only look to the Triangle
fire to see why unions are
"This is a story that needs
to be told and retold," said
Cecilia Rubino, the writer-
director of "From the Fire,"
an oratorio inspired by
the Triangle fire. "We don't
have that many moments
in our history where you
see so clearly the gears of
history shift."
To mark the centennial,
hundreds of theatrical
performances, museum
exhibits, lectures, poetry
readings, rallies and panel
discussions are taking
place nationwide. Two
documentaries have aired
on TV; PBS' "Triangle Fire"
premiered Feb. 28 and.

and survivors of the fire
will gather Friday for a pro-

This image provided by shows a detail
from the front page of the San Antonio Light newspaper edi-
tion of Sunday, March 26,1911, with headlines the day after the
Triangle Shirtwaist Company fire in New York.

The building now houses
New York University class-
rooms and labs.
Suzanne Pred Bass, a
Manhattan psychothera-
pist and theater producer,
is the great-niece of Katie
Weiner, who survived the
Triangle fire, and, of Rose
Weiner, who did not.
Bass ticked off the rea-
sons why people remain
fascinated by the Triangle
fire after 100 years.
"It's the youth of these
women," she said. "It's the
tragedy,' it's the changes it
spawned and it's the im-
migrant experience."
The fire started at end
of the workday and raced
from the eighth floor to the
ninth and 10th. As hun-
dreds of workers mainly
Jewish and, Italian immi-
grant women and girls, the
youngest 14 tried to es-
cape, they found a crucial
door apparently locked.
"They were panic-strick-
en," said Eileen Nevitt,
whose grandmother Annie
Sprinsock survived. "It was
hellacious, and they ran
for their lives the best they

Firefighters rushed to the
scene and raised their lad-
ders, which reached only
to the sixth floor. The fire
was under control in 18
minutes too late.
At the trial later that year
of Triangle owners Max
Blanck and Isaac Harris on
manslaughter charges, sur-
vivors testified that their
escape had been blocked
by a locked door on the
ninth floor. Some said the
door was kept locked to
prevent theft.
Katie Weiner said she felt
for the door, which she
could not see in the smoke,
and turned the knob.
"I pushed it toward my-
self and I couldn't open it
and then I pushed it in-
ward and it wouldn't go
and I then cried out, 'The
door is locked!'" she testi-
Meanwhile, the elevator
shuttled up and down car-
rying as many workers as
could cram into it. Weiner
joined the crush for the last
elevator but was pushed,
back. She testified that she
grabbed the elevator cable
and threw herself in, land-

ing on girls' heads. She was
the last person out of the
burning building.
The jury heard from 155
witnesses before returning
a verdict of not guilty.
"I believed that the door
was locked at the time of
the fire," one juror said.
"But we couldn't find them
guilty unless we believed
they knew the door was
Workers' advocates con-
tinued to blame Blanck
and Harris, who had resist-
ed a union drive in 1909.
Blanck's granddaugh-
ter Susan Harris said she
is saddened when people
demonize her grandfather,
who died before she was
"It's really important for
them, I think, to have a vil-
lain," she said.
Blanck and Harris were
on the 10th floor when the
fire started and were able
to escape to the roof. But
several of Susan Harris'
relatives died in the fire,
including Jacob, Essie and
Morris Bernstein, mem-
bers of Blanck's wife's fam-
ily who worked at Triangle.
Harris lives in Los Ange-
les but is spending March
in New York to take part
in Triangle commemora-
tions. An artwork she cre-
ated to honor the fire vic-
tims made of antique
shirtwaists and handker-
chiefs will be displayed
at the New York City Fire
Museum for a month.
One witness to the Trian-
gle workers' death plunges
was Frances Perkins, who
later became the first fe-
male Cabinet member
when President Franklin
Roosevelt appointed her
secreta-y of labor. Perkins
was having tea nearby and
heard the commotion. She
ran to the scene as the first
body hit the ground.
"That fire is the event that

of American history," said
Kirsten Downey, author of
a book about Perkins, "The
Woman Behind the New
Perkins was appointed to
the Factory Investigating
Commission, convened in
response to the Triangle
fire, and the panel held
hearings all over New York
state before drafting 20
laws aimed at improving
workplace safety. Some of
the new laws required fire
drills, set occupancy limits
in buildings and required
exit signs to be clearly
"Policies that were en-
acted because of that fire
permeate American work-
places now," Downey said.
Days after the Triangle
fire, 100,000 mourners
marched in a funeral pro-
cession through the streets

of New York, while another
250,000 lined the route.
Their grief built support
for the right of garment
workers to unionize.
"It created a strong gar-
ment workers union," said
Bruce Raynor, president of
Workers United, the 21st-
century heir to the Inter-
national Ladies Garment
Workers Union. "It helped
to really start the modern
labor movement."
He said the Triangle fire
strongly today, given the
labor struggles across the
country and in Wisconsin,
where a law passed this
month limits public work-
ers' collective bargaining
"One hundred years lat-
er, 150,000 people are pro-
testing in Madison, Wis.,
over the same issue," he
said: "the right of working
people to organize."

SD governor signs 3-day wait for abortion into law

The Associated Press this three-day period to

PIERRE, S.D.,-. South
Dakota Gov. Dennis
Daugaard signed a law
Tuesday requiring women
to wait three days after
meeting with a doctor to
have an abortion, the lon-
gest waiting period in the
Abortion rights groups
immediately said they plan
to file a lawsuit challenging
the measure, which also re-
quires women to undergo
counseling at pregnancy
help centers that discour-
age abortions.
Daugaard, who gave no
'interviews after signing
the bill, said in a written
statement that he has con-
ferred with state attorneys
who will defend the law in
court and a sponsor who
has pledged private money
to finance the state's legal
"I think everyone agrees
with the goal of reducing
abortion by encourag-
ing consideration of other
alternatives," the Repub-
lican governor said the
statement. "I hope that
women who are consid-
ering an abortion will use

make good choices."
About half the states,
including South Dakota,
now have 24-hour waiting
periods, but the state's new
law is the first of its kind in
having a three-day wait-
ing period and requiring
women to seek counseling
at pregnancy help centers,
said Elizabeth Nash of the
Guttmacher Institute, a
research organization that
supports abortion rights.
Planned Parenthood,
which operates South
Dakota's only abortion
clinic in Sioux Falls, and
the American Civil Liber-
ties Union of South Dakota
said they will ask a judge to
strike down the measure as
unconstitutional. Kathi Di
Nicola, of Planned Parent-
hood of Minnesota, North
Dakota and South Dakota,
said the law would intrude
on women's right to make
personal decisions about
medical treatment and
require women seeking
abortions to receive coun-
seling from unlicensed and
unaccredited pregnancy
centers that are often reli-
giously motivated.
"It's not going to do one

thing to reduce unintend-
ed pregnancy or reduce
abortion," Di Nicola said.
"We know women think
carefully and consider all
their options before mak-
ing a decision like this."
Supporters of the mea-
sure say the Planned Par-
enthood clinic in Sioux
Falls gives women little
information or counsel-
ing before they have abor-
tions done by doctors
flown in from out of state.
The bill would help make
sure women are not be-
ing coerced into abortions
by boyfriends or relatives,
they said.
"Women need to just be
reminded of the fact there
is a natural, legal relation-
ship between them. and
their child," said Rep. Rog-
er Hunt, R-Brandon, main
sponsor of the law.
The law, which takes ef-
fect July 1, says an abortion
can only be scheduled by a
doctor who has personally
met with a woman and de-
termined she is voluntarily
seeking an abortion. The
procedure can't be done
until at least 72 hburs after
that first consultation.
Before getting an abor-

tion, a woman also will
have to consult with a
pregnancy help center to
get information about ser-
vices available to help her
give birth and keep a child.
The state will publish a list
of pregnancy help cen-
ters, all of which seek to
persuade women to give
Jan Nicolay, co-chair of
the South Dakota Cam-
paign for Healthy Fami-
lies, which has opposed
restrictions on abortion,
said the measure would
invade women's privacy by
forcing them to go to crisis
pregnancy centers that are
sham clinics set up to dis-
suade women from getting
"Now, despite the fact
that South Dakotans have
repeatedly spoken on is-
sues of government inter-
ference in private deci-
sions, we will once more
be pulled into a protracted
legal battle that will poten-
tially cost the state millions
in tax dollars," Nicolay said
in a written statement.
Hunt said the state would
only have to pay legal costs
if it lost the lawsuit, and
the money would be well

Scott approves partial bailout for Florida courts

The Associated Press

Scott on Tuesday approved part
of a plan to keep Florida's courts
operating in the face of a $72.3
million deficit expected in the
current budget year due to a
drop in mortgage foreclosure fil-
ing fees.
Scott's budget director, Jerry
McDaniel, notified Supreme
Court Chief Justice Charles
Canady that the governor has
agreed to his request to tem-
porarily shift $14 million ear-
marked for mediation arbitra-

tion and court education within
the system's budget to pay for
day-to-day operating expenses.
That amount should be
enough to keep the courts func-
tioning through April 30, Mc-
Daniel wrote in a letter to Ca-
nady. He added that it also will
give the governor time to gather
additional information before
deciding on Canady's request to
borrow $28.48 million from non-
court trust funds.
The governor wants to know
what factors led to the deficit
and the steps being taken to re-
duce current year costs as well

as receive recommendations for
avoiding a similar deficit in the
next budget year that begins July
1, McDaniel wrote.
The shortfall is the result of a
temporary and unexpected but
sharp decline in foreclosure fil-
ing fees that help support the
court system, Canady wrote in
a letter to Scott and legislative
budget leaders last week.
Lenders have cut back on new
cases due to a pattern of missing
documents, erroneous filings
and other problems.
State economists expect the fil-
ings to increase again in the next

budget year.
Canady also outlined various
cost-cutting measures includ-
ing a freeze on new hiring, but
he warned of staff furloughs
without an infusion of cash from
other sources.
A Senate budget subcommit-
tee has agreed to appropriate
$50 million in the next fiscal year
to repay money Canady wants to
borrow from trust funds.
This year's shortfall comes
on top of a 10 percent funding
reducing in recent years that's
reduced court support staffing
by about 300 positions to 2,700.

Also, no new trial judges have
been added in the last four years
although caseloads have in-
Foreclosure fees are higher
than those for most other types
of filings and had been expected
to cover more than half of the
court system's $462 million bud-

cases every month but the filings
began dropping in late 2010 and

Gov. Scott orders state employee drug testing

The Associated Press

Rick Scott ordered drug testing
Tuesday of new hires and spot
checks of existing state employ-
ees under him, but civil rights
and labor lawyers questioned
whether the directive was legal.
Scott issued an executive order
requiring each of his agencies
to amend its drug testing policy
within 60 days to require pre-
employment screenings of all
job applicants and random test-
ing of the existing work force.
The American Civil Liberties

Union, though, pointed out, that
a federal judge in 2004 ruled ran-
dom drug testing of most state
employees was an unconstitu-
tional violation of privacy rights.
U.S. District Judge Robert Hin-
kle ofTallahassee determined the
Department of Juvenile Justice
was wrong to fire an office em-
ployee because he had no direct
contact with children nor were
there any safety reasons for the
testing, such as carrying a gun or
driving. Hinkle did not reinstate
the employee but ordered medi-
ation. The state settled with the
former employee for $150,000.

"The state of Florida cannot
force people to surrender their
constitutional rights in order to
work for the state," said ACLU of
Florida executive director How-
ard Simon. "Absent any evidence
of illegal drug use, or assigned a
safety-sensitive job, people have
a right to be left alone."
Scott also cannot unilater-
ally order drug testing of existing
employees without safety issues
if they are covered by labor con-
tracts, said Tom Brooks, a lawyer
for the Federation of Physicians
and Dentists. The federation is a
union for health care profession-

als who work for the governor's
agencies including the depart-
ments of Corrections, Juvenile
Justice and Children and Fami-
"Drug testing is considered a
mandatory subject of collective
bargaining" for most public em-
ployees, Brooks said, although
he acknowledged the Florida
Supreme Court has made an ex-
ception for police officers.
The Florida Constitution guar-
antees public employees the
right to bargain, but it also pro-
hibits them from striking, which
gives them little leverage, Brooks

"It's a big, 'So what?' most of
the time," Brooks said.
Scott spokesman Brian Hughes
said the governor believes he's
on sound legal ground.
"Top-notch legal advisers to
the governor have assured him
he has the authority to do this,"
Hughes said.
Immediately after Hinkle's 2004
ruling, a Juvenile Justice spokes-
man said the agency planned
to continue drug testing all em-
ployees on grounds that the
court ruling applied only to only
one person.

money, include some classrooms to
call it an "educational facility" for
state funding purposes, and then
lease most of the building to Odom
to use for his business.
The college's former president Bob
Richburg, who previously was a de-
fendant in the case, is expected to
testify against Sansom and Odom in
return for charges against him being
dropped. Sansom took a six-figure
job at the college on the day he was
sworn in as speaker in 2008.
Defense lawyers tried to get Kise-
la to say there was some need for
an EOC in Destin, south of Choc-
tawatchee Bay, because of its relative
inaccessibility during a hurricane.
That sparked a written question
from one juror, who.asked how many
times Destin was "cut off" by a storm
in the last 10 years. Two times, Kisela
answered, once by Hurricane Ivan in
2004 and another time by Hurricane
Dennis a year later.
Later, Dino Villani, Okaloosa Coun-
ty's public safety director, recalled

would be to "get Americans believing
in their future" so that the economy
can right itself. One way to do that,
he said, is to make the way smoother
for businesses who want -to expand
or otherwise create jobs for Ameri-
To do that, he said the country must
streamline the regulatory process
and rid it of unnecessary barriers
to growth. He said the budget could
also be trimmed and national policy
improved by "de-funding the czars"
like National Public Radio, Planned
Parenthood and other programs he
does not support subsidizing. He
included the Environmental Protec-
tion Agency in the list of "czars."
Southerland voted against the
president's health care bill, voted to
repeal it entirely, and said he wants
Congress to block Obama's proposed
Medicaid expansion.
In speaking about the. budget,

talking to Odom about the project
for the first time in 2005. He said he
told Odom he didn't think he would
be able to get state money to help
build a Destin emergency operations
center at the city's airport.
"He wasn't concerned," Villani said
of Odom's reaction. "He said he knew
how to get money from the state; he
knew people."
Because Odom owned Destin Jet,
a private jet service, he wanted to
build his own service station for pri-
vate planes. Such facilities include a
hangar for plane maintenance.
Mike Hansen, a longtime legisla-
tive employee, worked for the House
Budget Counsel's office when San-
som was appropriations chair. He
testified Sansom had given him a
note about the Destin facility, which
referred to it as the "Joint Use Proj-
The note had a circle with a line
through it, Hansen said: "That meant
it was important."
But under questioning by Stephen
Dobson, 'Sansom's attorney, Hansen
said he received dozens of similar
notes during budget time, all want-
ing different items. Hansen said

Southerland said he was one of 54
congressman who voted against the
latest of six "continuing resolutions"
that have allowed the government
to continue operating as normal as
legislators continue wrangling over
a new budget. Although he voted for
the first few resolutions, Southerland
said there came a time when he felt
legislators were "playing into (the
president's) hands" by doing so. He
said he broke with the Republican
leadership in voting against the lat-
est resolutions, and pointed out that
others are joining him as the resolu-
tions continue to come to a vote.
He expects 100 Republicans to
vote against another continuing
resolution, should it come to that.
He pointed out that a majority vote
against the resolutions would lead
to a "partial shutdown" of the gov-
ernment, but that essential services
would still continue.
Southerland said he sees that as
preferable to passing a budget in
haste that would increase the na-
tional.debt unnecessarily and exac-

"Hewasn't concerned. He said he
knew how to get money from the
state; he knew people."

Sansom's paperwork didn't stick out
as inappropriate.
Skip Martin worked for Hansen at
the time. As a deputy budget direc-
tor for the Florida House, he was in
charge of Public Education Capital
Outlay, or PECO, money. It was PECO.
money that was ultimately budgeted
for the Destin project.
Martin testified he must have
added the item to the 2007 budget,
though he did not remember doing
so. Scribbled on top of the note was
"From MPH per SD to fund," with
Hansen being "MPH" and Sansom
being "SD," or speaker-designate.
The trial continues at the Leon
County Courthouse on Wednesday;
it is expected to last two weeks.
Sansom's wife and three daughters
attended part of the trial Monday,
but they were not in the courtroom

erbate other problems he sees at the
core of the budget.
Southerland, who represents the
Second Congressional District con-
taining Jackson and 15 other coun-
ties, took an opportunity to speak
briefly of one or two other politi-
He said he voted for current House
Speaker John Boehner because he
didn't want to see Nancy Pelosi with
the gavel again.
Southerland also implied that one
of the U.S. senators representing this
part of the country needs to be voted
out of office, but didn't call the indi-
vidual by name.
Southerland's visit drew a full
crowd Monday, and he was applahd-
ed several times as he spoke of the
need for fiscal restraint, support for
the Defense of Marriage Act, and of
safeguarding taxpayers money.
Southerland's meeting lasted a
little more than an hour and a half.
He will be back once more this year
to inform his constituents of what's
happening in Washington.

the grass where they used
City staff visited Pat-
more at the restaurant
after she addressed the
commission in February,
to discuss what could be
done about the problems.
Patmore felt pleased af-
ter the meeting and was
hopeful the issues would
be resolved.
At the March city com-
mission meeting, Dean
presented an engineering
plan that would add four
parallel parking spots on
Marion Street near the
restaurant. The commis-
sion asked the city man-
ager to see if Patmore had
a few feet of land to give
up to accommodate an-
gled parking and poten-
tially add more spaces.
Dean and the engineers
met with Patmore after
the March meeting and
discussed other options
for adding parking in the
area. One thing discussed
was Patmore giving up a
few feet of land in front of
her business.
In a phone interview
Tuesday, Dean said the
only way to accommo-
date the angle parking
would be to move a lime-
stone retaining wall back.
In this scenario, the park-
ing spot would come up
to the retaining wall and
there's some liability in-
volved if someone were
to drive over the curb and
over the retaining wall,
Dean said.
Patmore was under the
impression that Dean
wanted her to assume li-
ability for anyone who
drove over the curb. Dean
said the citydidn't askPat-
more to take liability, but
that moving the retaining
wall "would create some
issues that would have to
be dealt with."
Dean said he will pres-
ent. several potential
parking scenarios to the
commission and the po-
tential cost of each at the
.April city commission
meeting so they can de-
termine how they want to
move forward. Dean also
said Patmore's custom-
ers can park in a county
parking lot adjacent to
the business and in a dirt
lot a few buildings down
on the west.
The other big issue for
the restaurant deals with
Patmore said during a
discussion with city staff
in February she was un-
der the impression she
would be able to put a di-
rectional "sandwich" sign
up at the corner of Madi-
son and Jackson streets
to advertise her business.
When she applied with
the city to put the sign up,

it was denied.
Dean said Tuesday the
intent of a "sandwich"
sign is to put it in front of
a business and the sign.
would either need to be
on private property or in
front of a business.
The city has ordered a
directional sign with the
coffee shop's name on it
and an arrow pointing
south to be placed at the
northeast corner of U.S.
Highway 90 and Madison
Street near the new Mad-
ison Park. Dean said the
sign will probably go up
when the Madison Park
project is complete. .
In February, Patmore
presented another prob-
ledm to the commission.
She said a city employee
told her she couldn't ad-
vertise in one of the store-
fronts downtown, where
two other businesses are
currently advertising.
At the meeting, the city's

Power crumbling, Yemen leader warns of civil war

The Associated Press

SANAA, Yemen Ye-
men's U.S.-backed presi-
dent, his support crum-
bling among political allies
and the army, warned that
the country could slide
into a "bloody" civil war
Tuesday as the opposition
rejected his offer to step
down by the end of the
year. Tens of thousands
protested in the capital
demanding his immediate
ouster, emboldened by top
military commanders who
joined their cause.
Ali Abdullah Saleh's ap-
parent determination
to cling to power raised
fears that Yemen could be
pushed into even greater
instability. In a potentially
explosive split, rival fac-
tions of the military have
deployed tanks in the
capital Sanaa with units
commanded by Saleh's son
protecting the president's
palace, and units loyal to a
top dissident commander
protecting the protesters.
The defection on Mon-
day of that commander,
Maj. Gen. Ali Mohsen al-
Ahmar, a powerful regime
insider who commands
the army's 1st Armored
Division, has been seen by
many as a major turning
point toward a potentially
rapid end for Saleh's nearly

32-year rule.
The question is whether
the Yemeni chapter of the
uprisings sweeping the
Middle East will read more
like Egypt- where the res-
ignation of President Hos-
ni Mubarak set the country
on a relatively stable, if still
uncertain, move toward
democracy or like Lib-
ya, which has seen brutal
fighting between armed
Already, clashes broke
out late Monday between
Saleh's Republican Guard
and dissident army units
in the far eastern corner
of the country. On Tues-
day, Republican Guard
tanks surrounded a key
air base in the western
Red Sea coastal city of Ho-
deida after its commander
- Col. Ahmed al-Sanhani,
a member of Saleh's own
clan announced he was
joining the opposition.
The turmoil raised alarm
in Washington, which has
heavily backed Saleh to
wage a campaign against
a major Yemen-based al-
Qaida wing that plotted at-
tacks in the United States.
U.S. Defense Secretary
Robert Gates, on a trip to
Russia, said Tuesday that
"instability and diversion
of attention" from dealing
with al-Qaida is a "primary
concern about the situa-

tion." He refused to weigh
in on whether Saleh should
step down.
After a month of street
protests led mainly by
students and pro-democ-
racy advocates against
his nearly 32-year rule,
Saleh became dramatically
more isolated after security
forces opened fatally shot
more than 40 demonstra-
tors on Friday.
The killings set off an ava-
lanche of defections by top
figures in his ruling party,
influential tribal leaders
and, most damagingly,
al-Ahmar and a string of
other top generals.
In a meeting Tuesday
with his still-loyalist mili-
tary commanders, Saleh
railed against the dissi-
dents, calling them "weak"
and saying they "dropped
away like autumn leaves."
"Those who want to
climb to power through
a coup should know that
things won't stabilize. The
nation won't be stable, it
will turn into a civil war,
to a bloody war, so they
should think carefully," he
At the same time, he is-
sued a softer statement,
saying he "sympathizes
with the youth" and calling
on protesters to enter a di-
alogue. He said he believed
their movement could "re-

Saleh had earlier rejected
such a proposal, making a
more limited concession
of promising not to run for
re-election when his term
ends in 2013.
But the opposition said
the new offer was too little,
too late.
-"The president's state-
ments are just another

political maneuver," said
chief opposition spokes-
man Mohammed al-Sabri.
"What was acceptable yes-

"There is only one op-

Graceville Baseball Wins

Tigers end skid M

Graceville takes

Floridan Sports Editor

The Graceville Tigers ended a nine-
game losing streak Monday night at
home by sweeping a doubleheader over
the Blountstown Tigers.
Graceville won the first game 12-2 in
six innings, with Jacky Miles starting on
the mound and pitching five innings for
the victory.
In the second game, Graceville coach
Travis Miller threw four different pitch-
ers to get an 18-11 victory in a game that
the home Tigers led 14-2 before a late
Blountstown rally.
Miles hit two home runs in the sec-
ond game, and Clay Jenkins started and
pitched four innings to earn the win.

Miller said he was happy with his
team's performance, especially in the
first game of the day.
"In the first game, we played good all
around," he said. "We pitched good,
threw the ball well, and just played good
baseball. The second game drug out
longer than it should have. We got re-
laxed and sloppy when we got up 14-2,
and let them score a few runs. We didn't
field that well either, but we did have
21 hits, so we were able to just outscore
Junior varsity player Ben Bodiford
moved up to varsity and went 5 for 7 at
the plate in the doubleheader.
Jenkins started the second game af-
ter pitching the sixth inning of the first,
with Devin Cassidy and Hunter Forsyth
sharing duties in the sixth, and Jared
Padgett going in the seventh.
Graceville is now 3-9 overall and 3-4 in
district competition.

Chipola's Tyrone Dawson checks a runner at first Monday night against the Northwest Florida Raiders.

Errors lead to

Chipola loss

Floridan Sports Editor

One of their worst defensive show-
ings of the season doomed the
Chipola Indians on Monday night at
home, as they fell to Northwest Flor-
ida State 11-4 in the final game of a
series that the Raiders won 2-1.
With the win, the Raiders improved
to 26-8 overall and 6-3 in the Pan-
handle Conference, while the Indi-
ans fell to 20-14 overall and 3-3 in the
After losing the first game of the se-
ries 11-9 at home on Friday, the Indi-
ans came back Saturday to even the

series with an 8-7 victory.
Six errors including five com-
bined in the seventh and eighth in-
nings kept Chipola from its sec-
ond straight series win to start the
Panhandle season.
"We kicked a few balls around, and
(the Raiders) did a good job of taking
advantage," Indians coach Jeff John-
son said. "We didn't play well defen-
sively at all. We can't win ballgames
like that."
Chipola led 3-2 through six innings
thanks to a strong start from pitcher
Robby Coles, but things began to fall
apart in the top of the seventh.
After a one-out single by Josh Mc-
Gee, Kevin Jackson drew a walk, and
Luke Bole was brought on in relief of
Bole struck out Trae Santos for the
second out. A passed ball allowed
runners to move to second and

third, and a dropped third strike and
throwing error by Chipola catcher
Geno Escalante brought both Mc-
Gee and Jackson to the plate for a 4-3
Northwest lead.
Strikeout victim Kyle Kennedy ad-
vanced all the way to third on the
throw, and came home to score on
an infield single by Ben Bridges.
RyanWelke was hit by a pitch, and a
two-RBI single by.Anthony lacomini
made it a 7-3 Raiders advantage.
Travis Higgs was brought out of
the bullpen for Chipola and got a
groundout by Ben Hernandez to
mercifully end the inning.
Chipola got a run back in the bot-
tom of the seventh on an RBI single
by Escalante. Northwest added four
more runs in the top of the eighth.

split with Gulf Coast

Floridan Sports Editor

The No. 12 Chipola Lady Indians will look to
bounce back from a disappointing split with
Gulf Coast on Saturday when they return to
Panhandle Conference action Thursday in
Tallahassee against the Lady Eagles.
Chipola (36-8, 3-1 in the Panhandle) split
a doubleheader with the Lady Commodores
on Saturday at home, suffering a 9-4 defeat'
in the first game before rallying back for a 5-2
victory in the second game.
Lady Indians coach Belinda Hendrix said
she's hoping for a better overall effort from
her team Thursday than it delivered on Sat-
"I don't think we played well at all in either
game," the coach said. "I was very disap-
pointed in the first game. There were a lot of
errors, a lot of guessing at the plate. We had
opportunities to score runs and didn't do
it. We were playing such ugly ball, I guess I
should be happy that we got just one win."
It was a tough outing for Chipola ace Brit-
tany Black, who was knocked out of the game
after two innings after throwing a no-hitter in
her previous start against Pensacola State.
Black also struggled against Gulf Coast in
a non-league game played on March 5, a 9-1
"I think she was trying to do better than she
did the last time, and they just got to her men-
tally," Hendrix said of the sophomore pitcher.
"I think it was mostly mental. She doesn't
want to disappoint anyone, and I think she
was trying a little too hard."
Fellow sophomore pitcher Liz Krauser set-
tled things down for Chipola in the second
game, pitching a complete gane and walking
no one.
"Liz came in throwing strikes. That's what
she does," Hendrix said. "She didn't strug-
gle finding the plate, and that's why she did


Childs wins pitching

matchup for Sneads

Floridan Sports Editor

The Sneads Lady Pirates snapped
a two-game losing skid Monday in
Chipley, beating the LadyTigers 2-1
in a pitching duel between Sneads'
Karissa Childs and Chipley's Chel-
sea Carter.
Sneads was coming off a pair of
one-run losses to Vernon and Bak-
er last week, and the Lady Pirates
found themselves in another tight
game Monday.
Vernon's Lauren Register and
Baker's Chassity McCranie each
picked up wins over the Lady Pi-
rates in low-scoring games, and
Carter kept the Sneads lineup
largely in check as well.
Carter allowed just two runs on

six hits, one walk, and six strike- ~~ j :.i
outs in seven innings, with Sneads
breaking through just once in the
fourth inning on a two-RBI single
by Kayla Rabon.
Unfortunately for Chipley, Childs .
was even better for the Lady Pi- -
rates, allowing just four hits and
no walks, and striking out six in a
complete game.
"I thought Karissa's pitching and
our defense were both outstand- -- _. .....

said after the game. "We made a
couple of really nice plays in the
field. Pitching and defense won the
game for us."

pitcher. We're just go-
ing to have to play better
ball. We can't have too
many errors, and we can't
be guessing at the plate.
We've got to go out and
attack the zone, make the
routine plays, and we'll
be alright."
The coach said despite
the loss to Gulf Coast, she
feels the team is bringing
positive momentum into
Thursday's game after
SSaturday's second game
"It was good for us to
get that second win,"
Hendrix said. "It's very
important for us (to win
Thursday). We're coming
off of a bye, and we need
a couple more wins to
separate ourselves from
the other teams."

the level of pitching the
team has been facing in
recent games.
"We have allowed six
runs in the last five games,
and our record is 3-2 in
that time," the coach
said. "You would think
we would win them all
doing that, but we're just
playing real good compe-
tition right now. We're not
playing bad, we're just
playing real good teams,
and we're seeing real
good pitching."
Sneads was scheduled
to host first-place district
foe Bozeman on Tuesday
night, before taking on

Staff reports

Jimmer, BYU hope to

continue NCAA run vs. Florida

The Associated Press

PROVO, Utah A week ago, BYU
players were still tired and sore when
Monday's practice rolled around.
Now, after making their deepest
NCAA tournament run in 30 years, a
little bit of the swagger is back.
Of course it helps that one potential
nemesis, Southeast regional No. 1 seed
Pitt, has been knocked out.
"I think we thought we could do it re-
gardless," star guard Jimmer Fredette
said Monday. "We thought we had a
good team, but now that we're in this
position, it's not that far, not that far
away. But we've got to take it one game
at a time."
The Cougars will catch a flight Tues-
day to New Orleans where they'll face
a Florida team they upset in the first
round a year ago, pulling out a 99-92
double-overtime win.
It was a coming-out party of sorts for
Fredette, who scored 37 points in the
nationally televised game.
Jimmermania has taken off since
then. NBA stars have tweeted his
name. President Obama mentioned
him when filling out his bracket.
And the BYU faithful have fueled a
frenzy that has reached high above
the mountains surrounding the quiet
Provo campus.
Fredette continues to take it all in
Instead of going out Sundayin a town
where he has been elevated to idol sta-
tus, Fredette laid low.
"I just kind of relaxed on Sunday,"
he said. "I didn't talk to anybody, just
hung out, stretched. I kind of stayed
away from it all."
Part of that is knowing what his body
endured last season when he battled
through mononucleosis.
Part of that is knowing what awaits
him in New, Orleans.
Double teams, triple teams, efforts to
keep the ball out of his hands.
"I think they're just going to be re-
ally tenacious ... run at my ball screens
hard, maybe double them and try to
get the ball out of my hands," Fredette
said of Florida.

The Gators return just about every-
one from last year's team with play-
ers who scored 88 of the 92 points back.
BYU has players back who scored 55 of
its 99, and none more important than
Fredette, a Naismith Award finalist.
The 6-foot-2 senior is averaging 34.7
points in his last seven games despite
the suspension of leading rebounder
and third-leading scorer Brandon Da-
vies and despite seeing just about ev-
ery type of defense thrown at him.
He knows it won't be easy in the Big
"They're just better because they're
more experienced and have played
together for two years," Fredette said.
"They won two games in the NCAA
tournament together as a team and
they're used to winning."
BYU coach Dave Rose also. sees a
more experienced Gators team.
"They're a year older, one year more
experienced, with a lot more wins con-
sistently this year. They found ways
to close out games, win games," Rose
Then again so have his Cougars, who
have overcome the suspension of Da-
vies for an honor-code violation.
"I guess you could say we lost some
of our swagger, or we had to re-iden-
tify ourselves," guard Jackson Emery
said. "We had to find who we were with
this bunch of guys; You lose one guy, it
shouldn't affect the whole team. I think
it did mentally a little bit. We just had
to figure out how to implement other
guys and different strategies and dif-
ferent lineups."
In Saturday's second-round win over
Gonzaga, Emery said he saw a team
that finally looked comfortable again.
Rose, who was part of Houston's Fi-
nal Four run in 1983, agreed.
"I thought the 40 minutes we played
against Gonzaga was a team that was
really dialed into the way we played all
year long," Rose said. "We shared the
ball, trusted each other. We made open
shots. We competed hard around the
He hopes that will continue as the
spotlight gets brighter and the stage

NEA Crossword Puzzle

AJnnie's Mailbox

Dear Annie: I am 47 years old and am
living with so many regrets. I married my
husband because I did not think anyone
else would ask me. I have never been in
love with him.
Fast-forward 25 years. Our children are
off on their own. I have been in counsel-
ing, and my therapist suggested I bring
my husband in with me. He has refused,
saying there is nothing wrong with our re-
lationship. We are intimate several times
a week, and I do everything around the
house. That is all he requires of a relation-
But honestly, if he did come to counsel-
ing, how could I tell him that I am not at-
tracted to him, that I never am aroused by
him, that I love him like a brother? I am
ready to ask for a divorce so I can try to
find a passionate man to fall in love with.
I want to feel needed and desirable.


Benjamin Franklin said, "Those who can give
up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary
safety deserve neither liberty nor safety."
At the bridge table, you have the liberty to
play safely or dangerously. This deal is a good
example. Without peeking at the East-West
hands, how would you try to make six no-
trump after West leads the heart queen? W
One tall bridge player had a reputation for
looking into his opponents' hands. One time
when two women came to his table, the one V
who knew of this player's penchant asked her
partner to keep her cards well back:
"Too late," said the peeker.
I am sure you all warn opponents who hold
their cards so that you can see them. A good
way to avoid any risk of helping a looker is to
keep your cards under the table.
Back to six no-trump. You have 11 winners:
two spades, two hearts, three diamonds and
four clubs. You must get a third trick from
spades. You could cash your clubs, hoping that
someone will discard badly But when you turn
to spades, you have two possible approaches.
You could cash dummy's ace, then play low to
your jack, taking the finesse. It will work when-
ever East has the queen or the suit is 3-3 a 2
probability of nearly 68 percent.
Better, though, is to cash your king, cross to
dummy's ace, and lead back toward your jack.
Now your chance of success rises to 77 percent,
gaining when West has queen-doubleton.

Is this a lost cause at this late stage of
my life? Is it better to strike out searching
for love that I may never find? Or do I stay
in this safe, amicable, boring marriage?

Dear Jennifer: It is possible to find some-
one more exciting, but that tends to be
temporary. It's also possible to find pas-
sionate love, and that might free up your
husband to find someone who truly loves
him, as well.
Or you could discover that this marriage
is more worthwhile than you believe and
be sorry you left.
If you are looking for a man to fulfill
your fantasies, the odds are against you.
You need to ask yourself that Ann Land-
ers question: "Are you better off with or
without him?" And only you can supply
the answer.


ARIES (March 21-April 19)
- It's. often wrong to mix
business and pleasure, but
that won't be the case cur-
rently. It's OK to talk shop
when out to lunch with a
person who has an interest
in your product.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20)
- Beneficial information is
likely to filter down from
an unexpected source, so
pay attention when others
are talking, regardless of
who they are or what they
GEMINI (May 21-June 20)
- Your greatest wins are
likely to come from people
with whom you interact on
a daily basis, and not from
those you rarely see.
CANCER (June 21-July 22)
- It's OK to put an ambi-
tious objective on the top
of your list. Get an early
start and don't stop until
you achieve it.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)
- Activities that challenge
you both mentally and
physically will likely bring
your greatest successes.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
- If there is something you
can do that would benefit
your family, it may be the
day to do it.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23)
- Take the time to read
that carefully written con-
tract or agreement written
up by a prospective busi-
ness partner.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov.22)
- You are likely to be com-
pensated in some manner
for service you performed,
even though you had of-
fered to do so without pay.
Dec. 21) Don't hide your
light under a bushel, be-
cause you are in a very ap-
pealing popularity cycle
and should be able to win
over new friends.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan.
19) This could turn out to
be one of those crazy days
when things will not turn
out as expected.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb.
19) Don't ignore your
compulsion to get in touch
with someone you haven't
seen for a long time.
PISCES (Feb. 20-March
20) If you don't think
you're generating the type
of returns you anticipate,
go ahead and mix some
business with pleasure.
