Suit against Jackson County

More county lawsuit hearings on Thursday


Jackson County and a host of
paving contractors go to court
Thursday for a hearing that could
result in a contempt charge
against the county and free up

almost $500,000 that is owed to
one of the pavers. Or not. Cir-
cuit Judge John L. Fishel has a
number of matters to sort out
as a lawsuit against the county'
The suit involves some of the
roads in the county's ongoing

$10 million paving project, for
which it took out a loan.
The companies that are suing
- Anderson Columbia, Jones
Construction and Triangle Con-
struction contend that the
county circumvented the re-
quired bidding process when

it piggybackedd" some of the
paving work on existing con-
tracts two other Florida com-
munities had with competing
Subsequently, the two compa-
nies hired by the county As-

lawsuit as intervening parties on
the side of Jackson County.

on session

Rep. Marti Coley. R-Marianna, has
called the 2011, Florida Legislative ses-
sion the most difficult she has ever been
in, but she is overall satisfied the legisla-
ture was able to balance a more than $70
billion budget without raising taxes.
Coley spoke at the Republican Club of
West Florida meeting Tuesday and dis-
cussed the outcome of the session and
her reaction.
As the chairperson of the Florida House
Pre-K-12 Appropriations Committee,
Rep. Coley and her committee had to
go line-by-line on spreadsheets and find
places to cut education. She said there
were some lines deleted that had been
funded for years.
Coley said they focused on the "prima-
ry mission of education and. that is the
classroom." However, classrooms still
received the largest funding cuts they
had in "many, many years," Coley said.
She added it was sad the cuts were un-
der her watch, because education is her
'As a former teacher, it was very diffi-
cult for me to inflict the cuts on educa-
tion that I knew I had to make in order to
balance our budget," Coley said.
Despite the significant cuts across the
budget, Coley said the legislature was
"still able to pass some good legislation,"
including several laws that "focused on
life," she said.
She specifically pointed out a bill she
co-sponsored that makes parental noti-
fication mandatory in order for a minor
to have an abortion. Coley said she was
pleased this bill was "finally" passed in
'A girl can go into an office and ask
for an aspirin for a headache, but she
couldn't get it without parental permis-
sion," Coley said. "But she could get an
abortion without parental permission."
She also highlighted legislation that she
said will "curtail problems around the
state with pill mills" and prevent deaths.
She said pill mills aren't just a South

Hope Center turns to

community for help

Jaylon McGriff paints a small piece of the wooden car he was working on Monday, as volunteer Chris Mitchell helps Jayhda McGriff with
her car at the Hope Center of Marianna.

Organization asking for donations, supplies


Three years ago, Missy Boyette
Mitchell established an after-school
program for children who live in the
Weatherspoon Apartment Complex,
most often referred to as the "grave-
yard apartments" because of its prox-
imity to a cemetery.
Mitchell selected it as a site, in part,
because of its location in an economi-
cally depressed area of the city,'where
parents often struggle to make ends
meet for their families. It has also been
a high-crime area, and Mitchell's goal
was to provide children a safe haven
and a supervised alternative that could
shield them from the'negative influ-
ences they might find on the street.
Marianna Housing Authority provid-
ed an apartment to serve as the center,
and the Marianna Police Department
established a substation in the same
Three days a week, children can go
there from 3:30 to 5:30 p.m. They get a
snack as soon as they arrive. After that,
volunteer tutors help them with their
homework. The youngsters then have

some free time to work on computers,
play video games, work on arts and
crafts, or engage in other activities.
Several children who were on the
verge of failing school are now on the A
or A-B honor roll at school, and many
others are no longer in danger of fail-
ing. Between 12 to 16 youngsters show
up every day the center is open.
Some of them are children who have
moved out of the complex since the
center was opened, but whose parents
bring them back to participate as often
as possible.
Angela McGriff, a parent whose chil-
dren participate, praises the center.
"My children have been a part of
Hope Center since day one," McGriff
said. "This program has helped my
children a great deal. Missy and Mi-
chelle (Missy's sister, Michelle Boyette),
work really hard to provide a great, fun
environment for the children that at-
tend. My children look forward to it
every afternoon. I wouldn't change a
thing about it. It's a great place."
But things may change, and not for
the better. The community is being
asked once again to step up to help, as
it did when the center first opened.

With the school year rapidly coming to a
close, a decrease in homework is giving
children who use the Hope Center of
Marianna, like Kivon Clemmons (front) and
Isaiah Clemmons, more time to play.
Mitchell said she appreciates all the
help received then, and all the help
that continues to come from individu-
als, organizations and churches like
Bethlehem AME, New Hope Baptist
and Eastside Baptist. Walmart donated

Florida State Hospital is not facing lawsuit


A spokesman for Florida
State Hospital Administrator
Diane James said Tuesday that
recent reports of a lawsuit be-
ing filed against the hospital
are incorrect.

Instead, it is the Agency for
Persons with Disabilities that
may be facing allegations of
client abuse, according to
hospital spokesman Melanie
Confusion may have arisen
from the fact that the Agency
for Persons with Disabilities

has clients in two wings of a
building on the Florida State
Hospital campus. But campus
space is all APD shares with
the hospital, McClellan said.
Florida State Hospital is part
of a different state agency, the
Department of Children and
Families, and has no connec-

tion to the Mental Retardation
Defendant Program, other
than providing it a place on
the hospital property.
Agency for Persons with Dis-
abilities spokesman Melanie
Etters acknowledged Tuesday

Project Learning Tree provides

environmental education tools

Special to the Floridan

Chipola College students in the el-

participated in a six-hour Project Learn-
ing Tree workshop at the Florida Caverns
State Park.
Bill Kleinhans and fellow Project Learn-
ing Tree facilitators, foresters and natu-
ralists Linda Hebb, Mark Hebb, Lil Hollis
and Ed Lewis led the workshop.
"Project Learning Tree is recognized as
one of the premier environmental edu-
cation programs in the world. It gives
teachers the strategies, techniques, and
conceptual knowledge for activity-based
learning to take the environment into
their classrooms and students into the
environment," Chipola science profes-
sor Dr. Santine Cuccio said.
The students used trigonometric func-
tions to calculate the heights of trees,

studied drops of water in the water cycle,
wrote haiku poetry, learned about dif-
ferent bird species to understand worm
camouflage, constructed webs in which
each student was a member of an ecosys-
tem; and studied tree cookies and rings.
The Chipola students were awarded cer-
tificates following their completion of
the workshop and the PreK-8 Environ-
mental Education Activity Guide with
educator resources. Activities were se-
lected from the guide and implemented
at the park, including Birds and Worms,
Water Wonders, Tree Factory, Tree Cook-
ies, Every Tree for Itself and Schoolyard

Our Opinion

Time to be

more vigilant

Wth the latest crime statistics in, there's
a message for the residents of Jackson
Be more vigilant.
We're not talking about major crimes al-
though even those are up. We're talking about the
so-called petty crime purse-snatching, vehicle
burglary, crimes of opportunity where someone
spots a chance to grab something and run.
Crime was up in 2010, and Sheriff Lou Roberts
says it may well be up again in 2011. It's not hard
to see why, with the jobless economic recovery
making it hard for many to make ends meet. It
is disappointing, however, that crime statewide
went down in 2010, while four Panhandle coun-
ties, including Jackson, saw crime rates go up.,
So residents need to take more precautions.
Like the truck we recently saw at Walmart, parked
with both windows rolled down and a purse sit-
ting on the front seat within easy view and easy
reach and the driver nowhere in sight.
It would be nice if we didn't have to lock our
cars when we park them, lock our doors and win-
dows when we aren't home, or check to make sure
we haven't left valuables out where the morally
challenged might be tempted by them.
But we do. Law enforcement can only do so
much to bring the crime rate down. We can help
by exercising a little common sense.

Letters to the Editor

State grant helped hospital prepare

I write this open letter with pride for our law enforce-
ment responders, Jackson County Fire and Rescue,
passersby who rendered help, but most of all to the staff
and physicians of Jackson Hospital, who responded to
the April 27 traffic accident involving a Jackson County
school bus.
Jackson Hospital conducts two emergency response
drills every year, and trains for events such as this ac-
tual one through a Florida Department of Health grant.
As a result of the funds received from the grant, this
training furthered our success in taking charge of the
emergency response required by this traffic accident.
When the call came in at 8:30 a.m. that a school bus
was involved in an accident, on which 23 students were
passengers, Jackson Hospital staff responded with a
called emergency code. Twenty-seven employees im-
mediately assembled to be briefed on the situation,
took their assigned posts to begin triaging any injured
students, secured the building entrances and exits, and
staged to implement our emergency response proce-
dures. All this took place in a matter of minutes.'
I give my heartfelt thanks and appreciation to Jackson
Hospital staff for their fine response. The event high-
lights what the staff of Jackson Hospital does every
day. Not only is the staff well prepared for routine,
scheduled healthcare visits, they are also wonderfully
prepared for emergency and disaster response.

Bin Laden's death is of

ymb olic importance

Scripps Howard News Service

United States special op-
erations forces have,
killed Osama bin Laden
in Abbottabad Pakistan, ending a
worldwide search for the head of
Al-Qaida and the instigator of the
9/11 terrorist attacks on the United
States. President Barack Obama
announced the successful mission,
noting that "justice has been done"
in a low-key, unemotional tone ap-
propriate to the occasion.
The struggle against international
terrorism is far from over, and bin
Laden could in the future become a
highly emotional symbol of martyr-
dom, a catalyst to turn the popu-
list turmoil sweeping the Middle
East in dangerous fundamentalist
Moreover, the fact that bin Laden
was sheltering in a comfortable
villa in a city associated with the
Pakistan military understandably
has generated alarm as well as
anger in Washington. Expressions
of outrage in Congress have begun
and are sure to grow. The Obama
administration's decision to launch
the raid without consulting Paki-
stan authorities clearly was wise.
Insightful UCLA Geography
Professor Thomas Gillespie and his
students two years ago produced
a paper that predicted bin Laden
was likely hiding in a city little more
than 200 miles from Tora Bora, his
last known location, a radius which
includes Abbottabad.

Gillespie hypothesized a city pro-
vided more security than a small
village, using the methodology of
his specialty, study of survival be-
havior of endangered species. This
analysis implied Pakistan provided
at least a somewhat sympathetic
Pakistan has been challenging
for Washington since the immedi-
ate aftermath of the 9/11 attacks.
Deeply rooted corruption has
plagued the nation, including the.
intelligence profession. There have
been reports of government people,
including members of ISI the
Inter-Services Intelligence agency
- supporting Islamic radicalism.
In the past, Washington was prop-
erly blunt in criticism of unrealistic
Pakistani denial of a Taliban threat.
Early last year, however, the
situation began to improve. Major
Taliban leaders were taken down
in Pakistan. Arrests of the Taliban's
Afghanistan provincial leaders
Mullah Abdul Salam of Kunduz and
Mullah Mir Mohammed of Bagh-
lan, along with the capture of top
Taliban military commander Mul-
lah Abdul Ghani Baradar, provided
dramatic, reassuring evidence of
successful cooperation between
American and Pakistani authorities.
These events confirmed extensive
Taliban dependence on sanctuaries
in Pakistan, which provide support
for the guerrilla activity in Afghani-
stan, but also are a strong indica-
tion that at least some Pakistan
security forces are working assert-
ively to destroy the terrorists.

Implicitly, this good news also
provided powerful evidence for
much closer, more positive cooper-
ation between Pakistan and United
States intelligence and military
services. The new rapport prob-
ably will survive Islamabad irrita-
tion about not being consulted or
informed about the American raid
on Abbottabad.
Unconventional warfare doc-
trines emphasize combating insur-
gents, in part by winning over the
wider population. This was a con-
scious response to China's leader
Mao Zedong's famous dictum that
Communist revolutionaries were
fish swimming in a sea of civilians.
So far, there is no evidence the
Taliban or Al-Qaida is becoming
broadly popular in Afghanistan or
Over the long term, Pakistan has
proven a relatively reliable ally. The
British-trained military is effective.
During the Cold War, Pakistan was
a conservative counter-weight to
neutralist India and Communist
Moving forward, Washington
should publicly emphasize solidar-
ity with Islamabad, while privately
pressuring for elimination of ter-
rorist collaborators.
Meanwhile, look for geographers
and others who apply informed
imagination to policy. This is
especially important in our era of
monotonous media speculation.

U.S. and Pakistan allied forever? Really?

tirrings of life on Capitol
Hill: Rep. Ted Poe, R-Texas,
has introduced a bill to stop
distribution of $3 billion in aid that
Congress appropriated for Pakistan
this year until the State Depart-
ment certifies that Pakistan was
not harboring Osama bin Laden
Unless it were to serve as a rubber
stamp, such a bill could be a step
toward long overdue accountability
on Pakistan. It at least offers a way
to call out the pathological inertia
that drives the U.S.-Pakistani rela-
tionship not forward, but in circles,
causing dizzy policy-making. Even
after Pakistan appears to have been
caught in flagrante delicto with
Public Enemy No. 1, House Speaker
John Boehner, for example, was still
prattling on about Pakistan being
"critical to breaking the back of
al-Qaida." Like the battered spouse
who can't see what's wrong with
another shiner, Boehner insisted:
"This is not a time to back away
from Pakistan. We need more
engagement, not less." He also said:
"We both benefit from having a
strong bilateral relationship."
He's half right. With $20 billion
in U.S. aid filling Pakistani cof-
fers since 9/11,1 I see how Pakistan
But I don't see how the U.S.
benefits unless "partnering" with
Pakistan while it supports four mili-
tant jihad networks in and around
Afghanistan, or paying Pakistan
billions while it more than doubles
its nuclear arsenal, are things that
count as benefits. If they do, the at-

tacks on 9/11 were a brilliant stroke
of luck.
This week, I heard an expert
panel hosted by The National Inter-
est magazine discuss aspects of the
U.S.-Pakistan relationship, so far
the sleeper topic in this post-bin-
Laden era. I got the same sense of
inertia, that U.S.-Pakistani rela-
tions are our permanent ball and
chain, coming from speakers and
some audience members alike.
You can't just turn your back on
Pakistan's 200 million people and
100 nuclear weapons, a war college
professor told me, just as though
the U.S. were a mouse locked in
a death-gaze with a boa constric-
tor. Why not? We certainly turned
on a dime when it came to break-
ing with Egypt and Libya, both of
which yielded jihad intelligence,
peace with Israel in Egypt's case,
and a cache of nuclear weaponry
from Libya now in Oak Ridge, Tenn.
- greater benefits than anything
coming out of Pakistan.
But like hostages self-handcuffed
to Pakistan's nukes, we remain
locked in a dysfunctional relation-
ship. There is a great irony in this
given that Pakistan remaining
nuclear-free was once the criterion
for U.S. aid in the first place. This
was the crux of the 1985 Pressler
Amendment (named for Sen. Larry
Pressler, R-S.D.) that required the
president to certify annually that
Pakistan did not have an explosive
nuclear device as a condition of
U.S. aid, and which halted the flow
of U.S. government aid to Pakistan
from 1990 to 1994.
This law should have regulated all

related nuclear anti-proliferation
policy, but it was not to be. Both the
Bush (the father) and the Clinton
administrations chafed at it, seek-
ing ways around it, undermining
the carrot-stick order the law set
until finally the Clinton adminis-
tration was able to end sanctions
on Pakistan in 1995. As the New
York Times noted at the time, the
Clinton White House "argued that
it is more important to improve
relations with a country that it calls
a large, moderate Islamic democ-
racy in a troubled region than to
punish Pakistan for building a
weapons arsenal that it is not about
to dismantle."
In other words, thanks largely to
the first Bush and Clinton White
Houses, the United States lost this
battle of wills and set out to "im-
prove relations" by paying tribute
to the victor.
This, of course, didn't translate
into leverage, either. After-the-
nuclear-fact sanctions went back
into effect in 1998 when India
and Pakistan both tested nuclear
bombs, but after 9/11, George
W. Bush had the bright idea that'
Pakistan, despite ties to the Taliban
organization then sheltering al-
Qaida, was the perfect ally for the
"war on terror."
Billions of dollars later, we know
how that story came out, but is it
written in stone? That's the ques-
tion Rep. Poe's Pakistan Account-
ability Act at least gives us pause to
consider, whether we really have
to' remain in (and pay for) a sham
alliance with a failed nuclear state
- forever.

agency has not been officially served
with notice of the suit.

In April, the suing parties were granted
an injunction from Judge Fishel which
required the county to cease further
work and payment on the disputed
projects until the lawsuit worked its way
through the court.
Much of the work, however, had been
done by the time the lawsuit was filed.
Asphalt Paving Systems has filed a mo-
tion to modify Judge Fishel's injunction
so that it can be paid for all the work
completed, at an estimated price of
That motion for modification may be
part of Thursday's 1:30 p.m. hearing.
Another motion, meanwhile, has been
filed by the companies that are suing.
They ask that the court enforce the in-
junction "and/or hold Jackson County
in contempt," and ask the court to keep
the county from trying to hire more work
out in what the parties contend is an im-
proper, noncompetitive manner.
The contempt motion may also be part
of Thursday's hearing.
The proceeding is expected to take up
most of the afternoon.
The motion for contempt was filed
after the county adopted a new "piggy-
back" policy and then rebid some of the
disputed paving projects.
The suing parties assert that the coun-
ty, in taking those measures, has vio-
lated the injunction. They argue that the
county is "violating both the letter and
the spirit of the injunction by attempt-
ing to award the new contracts in a non-
competitive manner and structure the
procurement process, to give an unfair
advantage" to the two companies who
have already been awarded the work.
The three companies allege in the mo-
tion that the county has "a clear intent
to re-award the same contracts back to
Florida Highway Products and Asphalt
Paving Systems. Worse, the county in-
tends to do so through the use of pig-
gybacking a method the court has
explicitly rejected as to these county
road projects because the process is in-
herently arbitrary and capricious and in
violation of Florida statutes."
Further in the document, the plaintiffs
cite some of the language Fishel used in
his decision granting the injunction.
The three plaintiffs further assert that
the county adopted its new piggyback
policy without prior public notice or de-
bate. The disputed road work involves
more than $2 million of the $10 million
paving project.
The plaintiffs say that the county's
disputed contracts differed significantly
from the contracts that were piggy-
backed upon originally, and assert that
piggybacked contracts must be substan-
tially the same as the originals to be law-
fully connected in this way.
The plaintiffs allege that the county is
trying to contract again with the con-
tractors previously given the work "un-
der the pretext" of re-bidding and pig-
gybacking under the new policy. The
plaintiffs object to the county rebidding
under these circumstances, and in par-
ticular, a requirement in the new bidding
advertisement which states that the bid-
der who ise awarded the projects would
be responsible "to check and rework any
parts of the work that does not meet
The plaintiffs say this is an unfair re-
quirement, noting that "the only par-
ties that can realistically know what this
might entail" are the county employees
and the original contractors who did the
work; that is, Asphalt Paving Systems
and Florida Highway Products.

about the re-bidding process were ad-
dressed in correspondence between Tri-
angle Construction to County Engineer
Larry Alvarez, and in a letter from Trian-
gle to the Jackson County Commission.
In the letter, Triangle CFO Scotty Taylor
told the commission he found it "impos-
sible to determine what we are bidding
on." He goes on to point out that the bid
advertisement stated some of the roads
had been partially chip-sealed in an-
other contract, and that the new bidder
would be responsible for checking and
reworking any parts of that work that
didn't meet specification.
Taylor wrote he met resistance when
he asked for clarification from Alvarez
about what work had been accepted,
and what needed reworking. "I was told
that was up to me to determine," Taylor
told the commission. "I would expect
that Mr. Alvarez, a registered profes-
sional engineer having final approval of
the work performed on road contracts,
would know these kinds of answers."
Taylor also told the commission that,
in the advertisement, bidders were di-
rected to submit "required attachments
and certifications to be executed and
submitted with 'the form of bid pro-
posal." Yet, according to Taylor, in the
bid package potential bidders received
from the county, "there was not form of
bid proposal, no attachments, and no
certification form. In the past bids, these
forms were included for all bidders.
Without those forms, it makes it impos-
sible to bid the contract," Taylor wrote.
He also told the commission he felt
Alvarez "has refused to answer my
questions and provide adequate bid
documents in order to hinder Triangle
Construction Road Building Inc. from
submitting a competitive bid on this
Anderson Columbia also sent the
county a letter regarding the same bids.
Company Vice President Eugene Strick-
land wrote that the company "is unable
to establish the specifications under
which the previous work was performed
and therefore cannot provide a price for
any rework that may be required." He
went on to say that he found a conflict
in the documents involved in the project
and that the circumstance "requires An-
derson Columbia to guess as to the items
of work contemplated."
Strickland said that, when he asked for
clarification, none was offered. He went
on to say that, although potential bidders
were required in the advertisement to
deposit security, he could find no infor-
mation for bidders upon which to deter-
mine the amount or form of bid security
required "and therefore could not obtain
a bond to meet the requirement."
At a meeting Tuesday, the county com-
mission directed County Attorney Frank
Baker to review all the documents on the
project cited by Strickland and Taylor,
and to make recommendations about
how to clarify the'specifications. In the
language of the motion by Commission-
er Chuck Lockey, Baker's task is to clarify
them "in such a way that it encourages
folks to bid."
The three plaintiffs also object to the
county's new piggyback policy itself on
several grounds.
They argue that it has language that
would give the county "unfettered dis-
cretion" to determine which contractor
is the lowest responsible bidder, citing a
paragraph that lets the county consider
a number of factors, including the given
company's workload, equipment avail-
able, qualifications of supervisors and
ground crews, payment history with
suppliers and subcontractors and other
factors, rather than accepting as respon-
sible those contractors approved by the
state Department of Transportation.

North Ala. nuclear plant cited for safety by NRC

The Associated Press

regulators ordered an in-
depth inspection Tuesday
at a nuclear power plant
run by the Tennessee Val-
ley Authority in northern
Alabama after deciding the
failure of an emergency
cooling system there could
have been a serious safety
The U.S. Nuclear Regu-
latory Commission issued
a rare red finding against
the Browns Ferry nuclear
power plant near Athens,
Ala., after investigating
how a valve on a residual
heat removal system be-
came stuck shut. The NRC
has issued only five red
findings the most severe
ranking the agency gives
to problems uncovered in
its inspections since its
current oversight program
started in 2001.
NRC said the utility must
pay for detailed inspec-
tions of the plant's perfor-
mance, its safety culture
and organization. The
agency said it could not
immediately estimate in-
spection costs.,
In an emergency, the
failure of the valve could

have meant that one of the
plant's emergency cooling
systems would not have
worked as designed. The
problem, which was iden-
tified as the plant was be-
ing refueled in October
2010, was fixed before the
Unit 1 reactor was returned
to service.
"The valve was repaired
prior to returning the unit
to service and Browns
Ferry continued to operate
safely," said Victor McCree,
the NRC's Region II admin-
istrator. "However, signifi-
cant problems involving
key safety systems warrant
more extensive NRC in-
spection and oversight."
NRC officials were criti-
cal of the utility for not
identifying the problem
sooner through routine in-
spections and testing. The
valve failed sometime after
March 2009 but wasn't dis-
covered until more than a
year later.
TVA spokesman Ray
Golden said the utility had
not decided whether to ap-
peal the NRC's finding.
"Safety is our highest pri-
ority," Golden added.
Experts said a failure of
the valve could have left
one of the plant's emer-

agency cooling systems
unable to function in an
emergency, for example,
if the reactor suddenly
lost the coolant needed to
keep its nuclear fuel from
The worst outcome could
have resulted from a series
of what McCree called un-
likely events involving a
plant fire. In case of a fire,
operators would protec-
tively shut down some
safety equipment, po-
tentially including one of
.the residual heat removal
loops. If the second system
did not function because
of the valve failure, plant
operators would be forced
to rely on other cooling
"We would not want
them to have to be in this
situation," McCree said.
McCree said the NRC's
upcoming inspections
will help the organization
decide whether addition-
al regulatory actions are
necessary to assure public
health and safety. *
TVA officials blamed the
problem on a manufactur-
er's defect in equipment it
doesn't ordinarily inspect.

ure never caused an ac-

lic safety. The utility has
inspected similar valves
at the plant and has not
found aqy problems, he
said. TVA officials also said
testing showed the stuck
valve would have eventu-
ally opened, though NRC
officials dispute this claim.
Past problems have led
to increased scrutiny.
The Browns Ferry Plant is

known in the industry as
the site where a worker us-
ing a candle to check for air
leaks in 1975 started a fire
that disabled safety sys-
tems. It is similar in design
to the reactors that mal-
functioned earlier this year

nuclear plant in Japan af-
ter a powerful earthquake
and tsunami.

Report: Up to 44M more uninsured under GOP budget

The Associated Press

House Repuiblican bud-
get would leave up to 44
million more low-income
people uninsured as the
federal government cuts
states' Medicaid funding
by about one-third over
the next 10 years, nonpar-
tisan groups said in a re-
port issued Tuesday.
The analysis by the Kai-
ser Family Foundation
and the Urban Institute
concluded that Medicaid's
role as the nation's safety
net health care program
would be "significantly
compromised ... with no
obvious alternative to take
its place," if the GOP bud-
get is adopted.
The plan passed by
House Republicans last
month on a party-line vote

care changes, potentially
even more significant than
President Barack Obama's
insurance overhaul. So far,
most of the attention has
gone to the Republican

care into a voucher-like
system for future retirees.

has no chance of passing
the Democratic-led Sen-
ate, or being signed into
law by Obama. But indi-
vidual components could
advance as part of debt re-
duction talks between Vice
President Joe Biden and
congressional leaders.
A spokesman for the au-
thor of the GOP budget,
Rep. Paul Ryan of Wiscon-
sin, challenged the study's
assumptions. The Repub-
lican plan will allow Med-
icaid to grow "at a sustain-
able rate, so that the health
care safety net will be
there for those that need
it most," said Conor Swee-
ney. Obama's overhaul will
force millions more into a
broken system, relegating
vulnerable people to sec-
ond-class care, he added.
Medicaid is a federal-
state partnership that
now covers more than 60
million low-income chil-
dren and parents, seniors,
including most nursing
home residents, and dis-

The Associated Press

EL PASO, Texas In search of Hispanic
votes and a long-shot immigration over-
haul, President Barack Obama on Tues-
day stood at the U.S.-Mexico border for
the first time since winning the White
House and declared it more secure than
ever. He mocked Republican lawmakers
for blocking immigration over border se-,
curity alone, saying they won't be happy
until they get a moat with alligators along
the border.
"They'll never be satisfied," he said.
Stymied by both chambers of Congress,
the president ditched lawmakers in favor
of voters who might pressure them, mak-
ing an appeal to the public on a hot and
dusty day far outside the beltway. He told
a friendly El Paso, Texas, crowd that it's up
to them to tell Congress to pass legisla-
tion providing a pathway to citizenship
for 11 million illegal immigrants.
The approach also allowed the presi-
dent to make clear that it's Republicans
not him standing in the way of im-
migration legislation. As his re-election
campaign approaches, it's a message he
wants broadcast loud and clear to Latino
voters who don't like his administration's
heavy deportations and feel he never
made good on his promise to prioritize
immigration legislation during his first
year in office.
"I am asking you to add your voices to
this," Obama said in El Paso. "We need
Washington to know that there is a move-
ment for reform gathering strength from
coast to coast. That's how we'll get this

abled people of any age.
Under the GOP plan, Med-
icaid would be converted
from an open-ended pro-
. gram in which the federal
government pays about
60 percent of the cost of
services, into a block grant
that would give each state
a fixed sum of money.

the study cast doubt on
whether governors would
have enough money com-

adequately meet the needs
of their states and avoid

President Barack Obama waves as he speaks
about immigration reform at Chamizal
National Memorial Park in El Paso, Texas on
Tuesday during his visit to the U.S.-Mexico
"We have gone above and beyond what
was requested by the very Republicans
who said they supported broader reform
as long as we got serious about enforce-
ment," Obama said. "But even though
we've answered these concerns, I gotta
say I suspect there are still going to be
some who are trying to move the goal
posts on us one more time."
"Maybe they'll need a moat," he said de-
risively to laughter from the crowd. "May-
be they'll want alligators in the moat."
"The question is whether those in Con-
gress who previously walked away in
the name of enforcement are now ready
to come back to the table and finish the
work we've started," he said.
Obama also tailored his argument to
the times, making his case for immigra-
tion reform in newly sharpened econom-
ic terms. He said that the middle class
would benefit from bringing illegal immi-
grants out of an underground economy
and drawing on the abilities of immi-
grants educated in American universities.
Obama also noted that it's not just Lati-
nos who want an immigration remake,
but also police chiefs, business owners,
educators and others.

Of those, some 17 million
would gain coverage under
Obama's expansion.
The study estimated that
31 million to 44 million
people would lose cover-
age from the combined
impact of the block grant
and repealing Obama's
law. Researchers said they
gave a range to account for
different approaches that
states might take to reduce
their Medicaid rolls. Under
the worst case, Medicaid
enrollment would plunge
by nearly 60 percent from
current projected levels.

The study found that
federal spending for Med-
icaid would decline by $1.4
trillion from 2012-2021, a
reduction of about one-
third from what is now

tain states would face the

Heat on cusp of eliminating Boston

The Associated Press

MIAMI Their char-
ter flight home from Bos-
ton landed around 3 a.m.
Tuesday, and the Miami
Heat were back at work
less than 12 hours later.
Typically, such a late ar-
rival would merit a day off.
Not now not when on
the cusp of knocking off
the team that has pained
Dwyane Wade, LeBron
James and the Heat for so
Up 3-1 in their best-of-
seven Eastern Conference
semifinal series, the Heat
will go for the clincher at
home against the Celtics
on Wednesday night. Mi-
ami grabbed control with
a 98-90 overtime win in
Boston on Monday night,
and now stands one vic-
tory away from reaching
the East finals for the first
time since the 2006 cham-
pionship run.
"This is not a team that
you let your guard down
against," Wade said.
"No way," instantly
chimed in James, nodding
as he stood on Wade's left.
It was not a long workout
for the Heat on Tuesday,
mostly film work and some
light shooting. The Celtics
took the day off, opting
instead to gather around
midday for their flight
to South Florida, though
it was certain that ailing
players like Rajon Rondo
- who remains hampered
mightily by the aftereffects
of dislocating his elbow in
Game 3 would be get-
ting some treatment.
"I'll be fine," Rondo said.
"I'm playing."

ment Tuesday. The team

The Indians set the tone
early against Santa Fe, with
Sasha LaGarde opening
up with a triple, followed
by an RBI single by James

DeWitt said the new
defense gives the Bulldogs
more versatility to face
different styles of offense
with equal effectiveness.
"We'll have two outside
(linebackers) that double
up as defensive backs," he
said. "When we're facing
a spread team, then those
guys become more de-
fensive back-type players
than linebackers. If we're
facing a team that runs
the wing-T like we do,
the outside guys come in
tighter, and play more run
than pass."

Minutes after Game 4
ended, Spoelktra began
telling his team that end-
ing Boston's season would
be its toughest challenge
yet. He did not back down
from that on Tuesday.
"We can expect their
best," Spoelstra said. "We
know we're getting their
best effort and I'm sure
they'll play well. We'll have

for a 3-0 edge.
The Indians then added
five more runs in the bot-
tom of the eighth inning to
end the game on the mercy
LaGarde and Geno Es-
calante each had RBI in the
inning, and Chipola also
took advantage of two er-
rors, two walks and a wild
pitch by Santa Fe.
Derrick Pitts started on
the mound for Chipola
and got the win, allowing
just two hits, three walks
and striking out four in 6
2/3 innings.
Matt Marsh pitched a
scoreless eighth inning to

DeWitt said learning
a new defense is a long
process, but it was neces-
sary after dealing with the
defensive struggles of the
past two seasons.
"It's frustrating when
you score points, and then
you can't stop people from
scoring," the coach said.
"It does get a little bit frus-
trating to the coaches, but
it's frustrating to the play-
ers as well. We all want to
win. We feel like we need a
change, so it just all comes
down to the personnel we
have, and us being able to
make this work."
DeWitt said the defense
is going over well with his
team due to its more ag-

to play better."
Wade and James, who
combined for 63 points in
Game 4, concurred. They
became teammates, in
part, to beat Boston af-
ter the Celtics thwarted
James's plan to bring a title
to Cleveland and domi-
nated the Heat since 2007,
including a five-game
ousting of Miami in the
opening round of last sea-
son's playoffs.
"This is like an Eastern
Conference finals type-of-
buildup series," Wade said.
"And it's been played out
that way."
Maligned much of the
season for their collec-
tive struggles late in close
games, the Heat got con-
tributions across the board
to pull it out in Game 4.

earn the save.
"I'm very proud of the
way Derrick Pitts threw,"
Johnson said. "Marsh
came in with runners on
first and second and did
another good job for us. It
was a two-hitter, so it was
a really good job by our
pitching staff. I said before
the game that someone

gressive style.
"There's a lot of blitzing
and things you can use to
cause confusion for the
offense, and that's what I
like," he said. "In the past
few years, we've sort of sat
back and read everything
defensively. We haven't
been aggressive. This style
of defense lends itself to
more linebackers moving
around and coming from
different places.
"It's intriguing. It's some-
thing different for the kids,
and we're selling them
on the fact that they'll be
moving around a lot more.
We won't be just sitting
and reading. We're going
to try to be the attacker."

James made a 3-pointer
- "A backbreaker," Celt-
ics guard Ray Allen said
later inches away from
the Boston bench to tie it
at 84 with 2 minutes left
in regulation. Wade's long
jumper with 2:01 left in
overtime was for a 92-86
lead and rendered Boston's
crowd silent. And Chris
Bosh sealed the win with
24 seconds left,, tipping in
James' miss to put Miami
up by five.
"We executed well down
the stretch defensively
and offensively," said Heat
forward James Jones, who
made another key play by
fouling Allen and taking
away a potential Boston
fast break with the game
tied at 86 with 19 seconds
left in regulation. "I think
it was just our presence of
mind, our determination.
We had mistakes. We made
some mistakes."
So did Boston.
The Celtics' miscues
were far more noticeable
down the stretch.
Rondo missed a layup
with 1:11 left in regula-
tion, misfiring on an easy
chance to give Boston
what would have been a
two-point lead. Paul Pierce
had to take a wild shot at
the fourth-quarter buzzer
after Allen and Kevin Gar-
nett collided on a play that
could have won the game
for the Celtics and instead
left them all shaking their
In overtime, Boston had
as many turnovers four
- as points.
"When 'our back is
against the wall, that's
when we show great resil-
ience," Garnett said. "We'll
see what we're made of."
If the Celtics lose, some
sweeping changes may be
on the way.

"We've got to put to-
gether two good games
in a row, so we'll see what
we can get done," Johnson
"I hope we're up to it be-
cause we've got our backs
against the wall."

However, the transfor-
mation won't happen
overnight, DeWitt said.
"I think any time you
put something different in
that you're not used to do-
ing, it's a challenge for all
of us," he said. "It's some-
thing that you've got to
take slow, just take small
steps in the beginning.
We're not concerned with
all of the blitz packages
right now. We just want
the kids to know what
.areas to cover, that sort of
thing. We're taking it slow
in spring, but I do believe
this defense fits our per-
sonnel, and we've got the
kind of kids who can be
successful using it."

'starting over'

with new

coaching staff

The Associated Press

ida coach Billy Donovan
is treating his revamped
staff like an overhauled
roster. He's trying to build
bonds, develop chemis-
try and create teamwork.
If it works, the Ga-
torS could stay atop the
Southeastern Conference
and make another deep
run in the NCAA tourna-
ment next season.
"When you have three
people leave at one
time, you're really start-
ing over," Donovan said
Tuesday as he introduced
his new, yet somewhat fa-
miliar, staff.
Donovan lost associate
head coach Larry Shyatt
to Wyoming in March,
then had Richard Pitino
leave to become associ-
ate coach under his fa-
ther, Rick, at Louisville
and had Rob Lanier take a
similar position at Texas.
Donovan filled the spots
with close friend and
former Arkansas coach
John Pelphrey, respected
colleague 'and former St.
John's coach Norm Rob-
erts, and former Florida
assistant Matt McCall.
"I've .had different
coaches leave through-
out the course of my time
here at Florida, but when
you have three people
leave on one staff at one
time, that's certainly
unique and very, very dif-
ferent," Donovan said.
There certainly have
been challenges, start-
ing with Pelphrey and
Roberts still having their
families, living out of
state. And with the sum-
mer recruiting season
about two months away,
there has .been little time
for the new staff to get
acquainted with recruits,
their families, high school
staffs and those all-im-
portant AAU coaches.
"It's no different than
a team," Donovan said.
"You try to create a lev-
el of chemistry inside
your staff. When John
was here and (Alabama
coach) Anthony (Grant)
was here and (Central
Florida coach) Donnie
Jones was here, it was not
by mistake that we had
really, really good teams.
Our staff reflected what a
team was all about."
Donovan said he ex-
pects similar results with
Pelphrey, Roberts and
"As a coaching staff
you're always looking to
make your players bet-
ter, but a lot of times in-
side your staff, you can
display a lot of chemistry
and teamwork," Donovan
said. "That's what we've
talked about a lot."
Pelphrey, who served


six years (1996-2002) as
an assistant under Dono-
van, is returning to Flori-
da after spending the past
nine seasons at South
Alabama (2002-07) and
Arkansas (2007-11). He
was fired last month af-
ter posting a 69-59 record
with the Razorbacks.
Pelphrey said he has a
lot more knowledge now
than he did when he left
Gainesville in 2002.
"I have a different un-
derstanding," he said. "I
see things completely dif-
ferent than I did the first
time around, not that the
way that I saw it the first
time around was wrong
because there was a level
of success. But as you get
older you gain experi-
ences and have a chance
to be exposed to the good
and to the bad. Those are
valuable things. Those
are weapons in your
Roberts, a 1987 gradu-
ate of Queens College in
New York City, spent six
seasons at St. John's be-
fore he was fired in 2010.
He was 81-101 and never
made the NCAA tourna-
ment. He spent last sea-
son working as a televi-
sion commentator for
the Big East Network.
Roberts also served as
an assistant under Kan-
sas coach Bill Self at four
different schools. He was
associate head coach at
Kansas (2003-04) and
an assistant at Illinois
(2000-03), Tulsa .(1997-
2000) and Oral Roberts
Like Pelphrey, he be-
lieves his head-coach-
ing experience will serve
, Florida well.
"Coming as head coach-
es, you understand 'the
urgency, you understand
the importance, you un-
derstand the little things
and how important those
things are," Roberts said.
"The same things coach

Donovan's staff as a stu-
dent manager in 2001.
He became head man-
ager the following year
and later accepted a po-
sition as Florida's direc-
tor of basketball opera-
tions, which he held for
two seasons (2006-08).

Now, McCall, Pelphrey,

are trying to fit together
and fast.
"We all just want to play
our role to be the best we
can be, and here, you

you can be, then you can

Annie's ailbox

Dear Annie: I live in a small condomin-
ium community. Two units down, there
is an older woman who is a hoarder. She
continually has trash piled up by her
front door and back porch. When you
look through her glass sliding doors, you
can see trash from floor to ceiling. This
has been going on for the past 15 years.
The board of directors of our condo as-
sociation has tried everything. The board
has fined her for various misdemeanors,
such as not allowing pest control in her
unit and leaving all that trash around,
but it makes no difference.
The woman does not talk to anyone in
the community, and we never see friends
or family visit. Any suggestions? CON-

Dear Owner: Hoarding is a form of
mental illness, and this woman likely
needs professional help. Since you can
see the trash inside her home, as well as
outside, it may constitute evidence that


"Avoidance" is one of the toughest declarer-
play techniques. How does it apply in today's
deal? South is in four spades. West leads the
diamond jack. What should declarer do?
North made a game-invitational limit raise
with four-card support, 10 total points (nine
high-card plus one shortage for the doubleton)
and eight losers (two spades, three hearts, two
diamonds and one club). South momentarily
thought about a slam, but his hand was too Y
balanced. South starts with six tricks outside *
spades: two diamonds (given the opening lead)
and four clubs. So he needs only four trump
tricks. With nine cards missing the queen, the
mathematicians will tell you to play for the
drop. But if declarer does that here, he finds that
East is getting a trump trick. South will shift to
clubs, East will ruff the third round and switch
to the heart queen, resulting in down one.
South should realize that he can fail only
if East gains the lead early and pushes a high
heart through the king, with West having the
South should play to avoid East's winning an
early trick. He should lead a spade to dummy's
ace, then play a spade to his jack. Here, after
the finesse wins, declarer cashes his spade king
and ends with an overtrick. However, even if
the spade finesse lost, the contract would be

her hoarding has created a health code
violation and the Dept. of Health could
order her to clean it up. There may also
be a fire hazard, in which case the con-
dominium board should notify the fire
department. As a last resort, the condo
board could sue her. Ask the board to dis-
cuss this problem with their association
attorney to see what steps can be taken.

Dear Annie: You printed a letter I wrote
that I signed, "Still Here Doing This." I
told you that I was married to a mentally
ill, emotionally abusive man. I stayed for
the children, who now rarely visit.
I wanted to let you know that I am not
"still here" anymore. I finally mustered
the courage to leave when it was appar-
ent that my husband was only getting
worse. I had the police remove him from
our home, took out a restraining order
and filed for divorce. I encourage anyone
who is married to such a person to get

Afghan special ops. units a key to US exit

The Associated Press

PAKTIKA, Afghanistan -
A hundred or so turbaned,
bearded Afghans packed
the plastic mats outside
the fort, staring skepti-
cally at Afghan officials on
a makeshift outdoor stage.
The officials were making
the case for setting up a
local police force.
Off to the side, watch-
ing silently, were the U.S.
special operations troops
who had made the meet-
ing possible by flying in
the officials and disarming
the villagers before they

entered the compound.
If all went well, the
Americans would later
be training the neighbor-
hood-watch-like police
force to protect the villag-
ers from the Taliban, and
hastening the handover of
security responsibility to
the Afghans.
The Associated Press
got a rare glimpse at the
ground level of this U.S.
special operations mission
- one vastly different from
the daring raid to kill Osa-
ma bin Laden in Pakistan.
The U.S. commander in
Afghanistan, Gen. David

Petraeus, credits increased
use of special operations
with helping blunt Taliban
momentum, largely by tak-
ing out militant leaders.
Less well-known is the
model Petraeus has sup-
ported alongside the ex-
panded raids, whereby
special operations troops
pair with Afghans to pro-
vide protection, while
training forces from lo-
cal police to Afghanistan's
own special operators
- to take their place. The
fledgling success of such
units marks a subtle shift
toward Afghan indepen-

dence, and a possible exit
strategy for the U.S.
Senior officials at the
White House and in Con-
gress are beginning to
speak cautiously of a new
model as the way ahead in
Roughly 100,000 U.S.
conventional forces would
draw down to fewer than
30,000 conventional forc-
es, while special opera-
tions forces would mentor
local security forces and
continue their high pace
of kill-and-capture raids
against militants.

presenting new uniforms for ALP at Gizab village of Uruzgan
province south west of Kabul, Afghanistan.

Tripoli sites bombed

Rebels claim

Misrata gains
The Associated Press

TRIPOLI, Libya In a
one-two punch against
Moammar Gadhafi's
forces, NATO warplanes
struck a command center
in the capital, Tripoli, on
Tuesday after pounding
regime targets around the
besieged port of Misrata.
Rebels hoped the stepped-
up attacks could help ex-
tend some of their biggest
advances to date, includ-
ing a major outward push
from Misrata.
The opposition also said
it made gains along a long-
deadlocked front near the.
eastern town of Ajdabiya.
Gadhafi, Libya's auto-
cratic ruler since 1969, has
not been seen in public.
since one of his sons was
killed in a NATO airstrike
April 30. A NATO official,
Italian Brig. Gen. Claudio
Gabellini, said the alliance
had no evidence to indi-
cate whether Gadhafi was
alive or dead.
The rebels' military
spokesman, Col. Ahmed
Bani, said opposition forc-
es had pushed Gadhafi's
troops out of rocket range
on the west side of Misrata
and dislodged them from
the airport after two days
of battles, raising the pros-
pect that the siege could
be broken.
Bani said rebels from
Misrata and Zlitan, 35
miles (55 kilometers)
west, had joined up to
fight in close-range com-
bat that rendered the re-
gime forces' long-range
rockets useless. Speaking
to The Associated Press

Libyan government officials and the media move through ruins of an official building following an air strike in Tripoli, Libya,
early Tuesday,

in the rebel headquarters
city of Benghazi, Bani said
Gadhafi's brigades were
pushed about 10 miles
(15, kilometers) back from
Misrata's airport.
"The picture is looking
good for us," he said.
In another boost to the
opposition, the U.S. State
Department said the first
load of non-lethal Ameri-
can military aid for the
rebels landed Tuesday at
the port in their headquar-
ters city, Benghazi.
Spokesman Mark Toner
said the shipment con-
sisted of more than 10,000
meals, with further ship-
ments of medical sup-

The Libyan conflict, dat-

seemed stalemated for
more than a week, with
most of the fighting along
the border with Tunisia in

new momentum in their

is doing right now, and to

Gabellini also said 30
regime military targets
have been hit since May
2 around Misrata, which
has been under siege by
Gadhafi's forces for two
months. The targets in-
cluded 12 tanks,- three
self-propelled guns, three

Gabellini said.
'Although it's a real chal-

Misrata, while minimizing
the risks to innocent civil-

by pro-Gadhafi forces,"
Gabellini said.

TOKYO Japan will
scrap a plan to obtain
half of its electricity from
nuclear power and will in-
stead promote renewable
energy and conservation
as a result of its ongoing
nuclear crisis, the prime
minister said Tuesday.
Naoto Kan said Ja-
pan needs to "start from
scratch" on its long-term
energy policy after the Fu-
kushima Dai-ichi nuclear
power plant was heav-
ily damaged by a March
11 earthquake and tsu-
nami and began leaking
Nuclear plants supplied
about 30 percent of Japan's
electricity, and the govern-
ment had planned to raise
that to 50 percent by 2030.
Kan told a news confer-
ence that nuclear and fossil
fuel used to be the pillars
of Japanese energy policy
but now the government
will add two more pillars:,
renewable energy such as
solar, wind and biomass,
and an increased focus on
"We will thoroughly en-
sure safety for nuclear pow-
er generation and make
efforts to further promote
renewable energy," an area
where Japan has lagged, he
Kan also said he would
take a pay cut beginning in

Questions follow drug suspect to Venezuela

CARACAS, Venezuela
Colombia's extradition
of alleged cocaine kingpin
Walid Makled has Ven-
ezuelans asking about the
huge payments he claims
to have made to close as-
sociates of President Hugo
Chavez and opposition
leaders arf demanding
answers. \
The,allegations, lingering
doubts and inquiries about
millions of dollars in pay-
ments purportedly made
to government officials
and military officers has
prompted the indepen-
dent media to nickname
him "Venezuela's Deep
Opposition leaders are
asking if Chavez was aware
of alleged dirty dealings,
how Makled amassed a for-
tune estimated at roughly
$1 billion in a decade, if
investigators will try to
answer the questions and
whether any officials will
ever go to trial.
Other Venezuelans want
to know if Makled, who de-
nies any wrongdoing, will
be permitted to talk pub-
licly about his case. The
suspected drug smuggler
has repeatedly demanded
that his trial be televised
and expressed interest in

nalists about the allega-
tions against him.
All the Venezuelan offi-
cials named by Makled as
having taken his money
deny his accusations. The
claimed payoffs were pre-
sumably to let Makled's
drugs leave the country,
though he has never said
this explicitly.
Chavez appeared on tele-
vision Monday night, but

did not refer to Makled's
Lawyer Fermin Marmol,
a critic of the president,
wonders if Makled will be
isolated or if authorities
will grant him access to the
media, lawmakers and op-
position leaders. Or maybe
,Makled will clam up, pos-
sibly under pressure from
the government or pro-
Chavez prosecutors, Mar-

mol said. "
"Is Makled coming with
an attitude of silence or is
he coming with the same
attitude of talking and ex-
pressing his points of view?
That's the big enigma of
the next two weeks," Mar-
mol said in an interview.
Colombia extradited
Makled, a man the White
House has called a major
drug kingpin, to Venezuela
under strict security and
Venezuela's secret police
quickly escorted him from
the Caracas airport to the
headquarters of Venezue-
la's intelligence service.
He faces drug smuggling
and murder charges in
Venezuela. Miguel Angel
Ramirez, his defense law-
yer in Colombia, said by
phone that Makled plans
to plead not guilty.
Makled has said in mul-
tiple interviews that he
paid military and civilian
officials in Venezuela for
government favors, in-
cluding a major warehouse
concession at the port of
Puerto Cabello, which is
also a key conduit for drug
shipments by sea.
According to Makled, he
handed out about $1 mil-
lion in payoffs monthly to
approximately 40 senior
Venezuelan military offi-
cials, including generals,
colonels and majors.
