during ER visit
From staff reports
A Blountstown woman is accused of
stealing drugs from a crash cart in the
Jackson Hospital emergency room.
The Marianna Police Department
said Crystal Ann Wooten came to the
ER complaining of an injury early last
Thursday morning, around 1:30 a.m.,
and was seen rummaging through cabi-
net drawers in the examination room.
After she left the hospital, staff discov-
ered that the crash cart used to move
equipment and medications had
been broken into, and that medications
had been taken.
Wooten is charged with grand theft
due to the amount and value, of the
medications taken, police said.
Marianna police learned during the
investigation that Calhoun County had
taken Wooten into custody that Friday

Two other fires
BY DEBORAH BUCKHALTER
Three very different fires kept fire
crews and county employees busy
over the past two days.
Arson is suspected in a bridge fire
which will cost the county about
$5,000 to repair. A wooden bridge
on Hasty Pond Road was discov-
ered partially burned on one side
Tuesday morning. It may have been
set afire sometime Monday night.
Jackson County Road and Bridge Su-
perintendent Al Green said several
beer containers were found near the
charred bridge, and he speculates it
may have been a costly prank fueled
by alcohol consumption.
The road department blocked the
area with cones and tape until the
repairs can be made. Anyone with
information about that fire is asked
to call the Jackson County Sheriff's
On Monday around 5:30 p.m.,
crews were called out to a shed fire
on Wintergreen Road in Bascom.
According to Jackson County Fire
Marshal Chuck Sawyer, that fire was
accidentally set by a young boy who
was playing with a lighter. He caught
a cardboard box on fire which was
sitting on top of a pool table in the
The youngster, who Sawyer esti-
mated was six or seven years old,
ran from the shed into his grand-
parents house after the fire started.
His grandmother subsequently saw
the smoke and called forthe fire de-
partment, but they were unable to
save the structure. Sawyer said the
incident can serve as a reminder to
"Store matches and lighters out of
the reach of children," Sawyer said.
"Never use fire as a source of amuse-
ment for children; it may entice
them. He had probably made fires
before, and this one got out of hand.
The best prevention is to never leave
these kinds of things in areas where
kids may go without supervision."
On Tuesday afternoon, Grand
Ridge volunteer firefighters were
able to extinguish a small fire before
it got out of control on Shady Grove
Road, at the intersection of Edenfield
Drive. Sawyer said this fire started
when the top of a tractor trailer rig
encountered a power line. The ten-
sion on the wire caused the power
pole to break; the line dropped to the

would like to see a Boys and Girls Club formed in
Marianna. We think that is an excellent idea, and
would go even farther we think more needs
to be done to create activities for young people,
especially during the summer months.
There is Blue Springs, but one can't expect
young people to go there every day. There are
summer athletics programs, but not everyone
plays sports. There is the public library, but even
library staff wouldn't want to see young people
use it as an all-day hang-out.
And with the job market tight, there aren't many
opportunities for teenagers to find even part-
time work while school is out.
We don't expect the situation to improve imme-
diately. But Jackson County and here we don't
mean county government needs to do more to
create opportunities for young people. Churches,
service clubs, even businesses can and should
pitch in to ensure there are plenty of things for
the county's youngest residents to do, besides
watch TV play video games or just hang out.

it 1 urity is the enemy of
.Jvictory." Those are the
,L words of Gov. Haley
Barbour of Mississippi, who ear-
lier this year declined to seek the
Republican presidential nomina-
tion. But if the GOP doesn't listen
to him, they will make it much
easier for President Obama to win
a second term.
Seventeen months before an
election, polls are notoriously
unreliable. But they do describe the
current political landscape, and a
new found of surveys points to an
inescapable conclusion: Obama
is clearly vulnerable. In the ABC
News/Washington Post poll, the
bin Laden bounce is already gone.
The president's approval rating is
back to 47 percent, exactly what it
was before the terrorist chief was
gunned down in late April. And
any incumbent who rates below 50
percent is in serious trouble.
The reason can be summed up
in two words: the economy. Or two
numbers: 9 and 4. With the unem-
ployment rate at 9.1 percent and
gasoline near $4 a gallon (although
it has been dropping lately), virtu-
ally every American family is feel-
ing the sting of reduced purchasing
power and expectations. No won-
der that 59 percent in the ABC/Post
poll disapproves of how Obama is
handling the economy.

BY DONNA BRAZILE
Sarah Palin should not be dis-

below, starting with an important
one: She has time.
Palin can wait until the last pos-
sible moment to officially file her
intent to run. Others who have
already filed or are looking to file
need to start developing traction-
generating strategies now.
However, Palin has both name
recognition and the ability to
quickly raise the funds needed to
pull together a massive organiza-
tion in the key early states. This
media-savvy political professional
can decide when it is the right time
for her to file.
She voluntarily kept a low profile
after her response to the Arizona
shootings earlier this year brought
her so much negative publicity.
Prior to the tragedy, Palin on her
website had politically targeted

the shootings) district and others,

press folks behaved as if they were
starved for her. No other Repub-

kind of excitement, positive or
A just-released Washington Post/
Pew Research Center poll found
that almost 4-in-10 Republicans are
unhappy with their party's current
choices for nominee. Results like
these lead to a perceived vacuum
that candidates such as Rick Santo-
rum and Michelle Bachmann feel
positioned to fill. Donald Trump
felt poised to fill it. He floated his
trial balloon only to see it popped
in short order.
The Republican Party has taken
a significant shift to the political
right. I can remember the days
when the party was an inclusive or-
ganization. But Republican legends
like former Vice President Nelson
Rockefeller, Sen. Jacob Javits of
New York and Clifford Case of New
Jersey are gone with history.
Palin certainly doesn't fill that
void, but she may be served by it.
Of all the people set to cash in if the
tea party retains its strength, Palin
maybe first among them.
Why? Let me explain: Moder-
ate Republicans are in danger of
extinction. After the 2008 election,
some polls showed the GOP barely
had the public's support. So, the
party decided to work with this fac-
tion. It concentrated on issues that
brought them storming to town
hall meetings and into the election
Unfortunately for the pragmatists
who run the party, they birthed the
tea party Republicans. Tea partiers
ran in the primaries and won.
Now they are strong enough to tell
Speaker John Boehner what his
limits are. And they do.
They aren't done. Tea party Re-
publicans are fielding candidates
against the handful of moderates
who remain in the party such as
Sens. Richard Lugar of Indiana and
Olympia Snowe of Maine.

Whether we agree with them,
when Bachmann and Palin cam-

they are saying. Both can't help but
cut into each other's support be-
cause they appeal to the same base.
It is from that fractured base that I
imagine Palin ascending.
Palin is the candidate with the
most crossover appeal between
groups. She can talk to the tea par-
tiers, the radicals even the nearly
When scripted, she can be rather
convincing, especially compared
to other candidates. The others are
too drab in policy, in convic-

can't compete with her star power.
From here, 2012 looks like a slam-
dunk for Sarah Palin.

State universities eye 7 percent tuition increase
The Associated Press
TALLAHASSEE Trustees at
six of Florida's 11 public universi-
ties have unanimously agreed to
seek 7 percent increases in their
in-state undergraduate tuition
rates. If approved, they would be
on top of an 8 percent tuition in-
crease ordered by the Legislature
for the next academic year.
Votes will be held by trustees at
the other five schools before the
Board of Governors considers
the requests at a June 23 meeting
It's shaping up as a replay of
Lawmakers then also raised tu-
ition by 8 percent, and the Board
of Governors approved 7 percent
differential increases for each of
the universities. That raised their
tuition rates-by a total of 15 per-
cent the annual limit set by

dered increase will add $229.50

total to $3,099.60 per year.
The additional 7 percent would
affect the schools differently be-
cause some have raised their dif-
ferential tuition more than oth-
ers in the past.
On average, though, it would
increase the 30 credit hour an-
nual cost by $274.80 for a total of
The figures do not include fees
that differ among the universi-
ties. Raising tuition the full 15
percent would still leave Florida
as one of the nation's best higher
education bargains for in-state
undergraduates, but it will still
be a hardship for many students
and their parents.
"If we're going to pay more,'
we're going to have to receive
more," said Florida StudentAsso-
ciation Chairman Gallop Frank-
lin, also student body president
at Florida A&M University.
State University System of-
ficials say students are getting
more. An analysis shows the ad-
ditional 7 percent approved last
year saved or created 947 jobs
for faculty members and advis-
ers during the 2010-11 academic
year. It also enabled the schools
to save or add 4,318 course
The universities, though,
wouldn't need more tuition
money to save jobs and courses

"This tuition differential
doesn't come close to filling
'gaps' in state support," said
State University System spokes-
woman Kelly Layman.
She also noted the 7 percent
increase would raise $110 mil-
lion across the system, not even
enough to offset the loss of
$140 million in federal stimulus
money the universities received
during the current budget year,
which ends June 30.
Although the Legislature ap-
proved only an 8 percent tuition
increase, the state budget it
passed assumes the full 15 per-
cent. So, if a university doesn't
opt for the additional 7 percent.
it would be looking at a further
Franklin, also the outgoing
student member of the Board
of Governors, last year voted to
approve the differential increase
at nine schools but against it for
the other two.
He said he generally has sup-
ported the increases because
students have a voice in the re-
quests because they also have
members on the boards of
trustees at each campus. And
even with the spending cuts, he
said the Legislature hasn't re-

"We do get a good deal in refer-

tuition," Franklin said.
University of Florida Student

fended his vote for the 7 percent
increase as the student trustee
in a statement published by the
campus newspaper, The Inde-'
pendent Florida Alligator.
Meyers wrote that a key factor

Fair Districts Now calls redistricting hearings 'charade'

Fair Districts Now held a tele-

sent a letter urging leaders of the

lift a "gag order" they've put on
lawmakers for the hearings and
to stop using taxpayer money to
challenge a pair of state consti-
tutional amendments sponsored
by Fair Districts Now.

amendments, one. each for

letter from Senate Reapportion-
ment Committee Chairman Don

Former Democratic state Sen.
Dan Gelber, now an attorney for
Fair Districts, suggested legisla-

Water line breaks; customers on boil-water notice
BY DEBORAH BUCKHALTER
About 20 customers on Sunset
and Edgewood drives in Marian-
na were without water for about
half the business day Tuesday af-
ter a water main burst. The water
was turned back on after the line
repair was made and the line was
flushed, but the affected house-
holds will be on a boil-water no-
tice for the next several days.
The boil water notice was nec-
essary because the broken line
gave contaminants a potential
path into the water supply.
Tests for possible contamina-
tion must be conducted and
reviewed before the water is
cleared for consumption from called to complain of low water
Marianna Water and Wastewa-
ter Superintendent Rick Harrell
said Tuesday that the line was
being returned to service around
The break occurred around
8:30 a.m. City crews discovered
it after customers in the area
Harrell said the broken main
was an old line made of an as-
bestos and cement blend, in-
stalled in the 1950s. The broken
section was replaced Tuesday
with PVC pipe. Harrell said there
is no danger related to the pres-
ence of asbestos in the old line.
"The danger with asbestos is
when it is dry and is disturbed
in the dry state, because it can
then become airborne. This was
wet material, and we cleaned up
all the debris from the site, so no
one is going to breathe this in,"
Asbestos was commonly used
during the 1950s, he noted.

Gates urges patience with Pakistan
The Associated Press
U.S. is disappointed and
suspicious that militants in
Pakistan apparently were
tipped off that American
intelligence officials had
discovered two of their
facilities, Defense Secre-
,tary Robert Gates says.
But he stopped short of
concluding that Pakistani
officials leaked the infor-
mation to the al-Qaida-
linked Haqqani insurgents.
And Gates said such inci-
dents must not derail U.S.
relations with Islamabad.
A little over two weeks
before ending his 4 1/2-
year tenure as Pentagon
chief, Gates sat down in his
office Monday for an Asso-
ciated Press interview that
touched on a range of is-
sues, including his expec-
tation of a smooth handoff
to his designated succes-
sor, current CIA Director
Gates will retire June 30;
Panetta's Senate confirma-
tion is expected shortly.
On Tuesday, the Senate
Armed Services Commit-
tee reported a unanimous
voice vote to send his
nomination to the floor of
the Senate. The Pakistan
intelligence breach has
only fueled unease in the
U.S., where officials worry
about links between the
intelligence service there
and some militant groups.
A U.S. official said Mon-
day that after telling Paki-
stani intelligence about
the location of the two
compounds, U.S. drones
and satellite feeds showed
the militants clearing out
the contents at both sites.
"We don't know the spe-
cifics of what happened,"
said Gates. "There are sus-
picions and there are ques-
tions, but I think there was
clearly disappointment on
As an act of faith to re-
store relations with Paki-
stan, U.S. intelligence in
recent weeks shared the
location of two such com-
pounds believed to contain
bomb material held by the
Haqqani network. But by
the time Pakistani authori-
ties reached the facilities,
they had been vacated.
The official, who spoke
on condition of anonymity
to discuss classified mat-
ters, said the assumption
was that the Pakistanis had
tipped off the Haqqanis.
Trust has been in short
supply in the U.S.-Paki-
stani relationship, high-
lighted most dramatically
by the U.S. decision not to
tell Islamabad in advance
of the May 2 Navy SEAL

compound in Abbottabad,
Pakistan, out of fear that
they might tip off the al-
Daniel Benjamin, the
State Department's coun-
said Tuesday that bin Lad-
en "obviously" benefited

Asked whether it was
time to take a harder line
with Pakistan, Gates coun-
seled patience and noted
that the Pakistanis have
not forgotten that the U.S.
abandoned them in the
late 1980s after the Soviets
pulled out of Afghanistan.
"We need each other,
and this relationship goes
beyond Afghanistan," he
said. "It has to do with re-
gional stability, and I think
we have to be realistic
about Pakistani distrust ...
and their deep belief that
when we're done with al-
Qaida that we'll be gone,
Despite recurring ten-
sions between Washington
and Islamabad, and ques-
tions by some in Congress
about the wisdom of hav-
ing spent billions of dollars
on aiding Pakistan since
the Sept. 11, 2001, terror
attacks, Gates said the ef-
fort has paid off.
On other topics, Gates
said he sees no roadblocks
to ending the ban on open-
ly gay military service, and
if the top officers of each
service recommend mov-
ing ahead on the repeal be-
fore the end of the month,
he will endorse it.
More than a million U.S.

Spinach prices dropped 48

Gas prices at the whole-

"I cried," said Moore, who lives in the
small central California town of Corcor-
an. "What can you do when the only thing
out there that can maybe give you some
quality of life is unaffordable? I was dev-
astated. I didn't know what to do."
Private insurance companies that deliv-
er the Medicare prescription benefit say
the problem is that drug makers charge
too much for the medications, some of
which were developed from taxpayer-
funded research. The pharmaceutical in-
dustry faults insurers, saying copayments
on drugs are higher than cost-sharing for
other medical services, such as hospital
care. Some experts blame the design of
the Medicare prescription benefit itself,
because it allows insurers to put expensive
drugs on a so-called "specialty tier" with
copayments equivalent to 25 percent or
more of the cost of the medication. Medi-
care supplemental insurance Medigap
- doesn't cover those copayments.
For many seniors, the situation is not
as bleak as what Moore encountered,
Kelman suggested. For example, the pre-
scription plan is designed so beneficiaries
who are poor or near poverty face only to-
ken copays. For the rest, President Barack
Obama's health care law gradually closes
the coverage gap.

Dear Annie: Two years ago, my son
began dating "Layla," who then became
pregnant. I went out of my way to in-
clude her in our family. I bought mater-
nity clothes and baby outfits, took her
out for lunch and paid for her to join us
on a family cruise.
Layla emailed everyone to stay away
from the hospital the day of the baby's
birth, as she wanted "bonding time" I
asked my son if I could bring flowers. He
said "fine" and met me at the hospital.
He invited me to get a peek at the baby
through the window. I didn't see Layla,
but when she.heard I had been there, she
became extremely angry, and requests to
see my new grandson were rebuffed.
I sent an email apologizing for upset-
ting her. I also suggested we seek coun-
seling together. In response, she "un- '
friended" me from her Facebook page,
sent me a list of all of my "wrongdoings."
My son said he had to side with Layla
because she is the mother of his child.
My grandson is now a year old. I saw a
therapist who recommended I distance
How should South play as safely as possible
in this three-no-trump contract? West leads his
fourth-highest heart and East puts up the jack.
North's three-diamond rebid guarantees at
least a six-card suit and promises a good 14 to a
so-so 17 high-card points.
The original declarer grabbed the first trick W
with his heart king and ran the diamond 10. A
East happily won with his king and returned Y
the heart twb (his original fourth-highest) and *
West took four tricks in the suit for down one.
South, as defeated declarers are wont to do,
grumbled about bad luck. But this gave North
his opportunity. "You know from the first trick
that West has the ace-10 of hearts hovering
over your queen-nine. If East had the ace, he
would have played it, third hand high. And if
East had the jack and 10, he would have put up
the 10, the lower of equal cards when playing
third hand high. To keep East off the lead, play
a club to dummy's king and run the spade 10.
It loses and West shifts to a diamond, but you
with dummy's ace, play a spade to your ace,
lead a club to dummy's ace, and play a spade
to your nine. You take three spades, one heart,
one diaihond and four clubs. Your chances are
77.6 percent, much better than the 50-50 dia-
myself, which I have done. My son finally
called to say he is marrying Layla in-
two months. He said they want to meet
with me in a public place to discuss the
possibility of allowing me back into their
lives, but with strict conditions. I told my
son the only way I would do this is if both
of them first agreed not to keep me from
my grandchild without good reason.
He replied, "Our baby, our terms," and I
haven't heard from them sihce.
It has taken me months to get back
on an even keel, and I never want to go
through this pain again. Should I write
them out of my life? Is there anything
else I can do? NUMB IN NEVADA
Dear Numb: Layla sounds like a con-
trol freak, and your son has no spine.
However, as the parents, they get to set
the boundaries when it comes to their
child, like it or not. If you want to see
your grandson, you will have to play by
their rules. It won't be easy, but it can be
done. Only you can decide if it's worth

Nervous Iraqis buying weapons
The Associated Press .. .
al-Sahil already had an
AK-47 assault rifle at
home but just didn't feel
safe. The furniture mer-
chant was worried about
violence in Baghdad and
the impending U.S. with-
drawal of troops. So he
bought two pistols and
some more ammunition.
Iraqis are facing a chang-
ing and uncertain future,
and they're dealing with it
by arming up. .
"These weapons are for
the protection of myself
and my family..I fear that
things will get as worse as
it was in 2005 and 2006.'
We cannot predict what
will happen tomorrow
or after tomorrow," said
Weapons are an every-
day part of the Iraqi land-
scape. Nearly every home
has at least one weapon,
often an AK-47 assault
rifle. At many buildings,
residents and bodyguards
can be seen checking
their pistols with security
before they're allowed to

tain jobs or positions that
might make them need a
weapon are allowed to le-
gally own them and only
with a license. Jewelry
store owners who often
find themselves attacked
or doctors who are tar-
geted for kidnapping can
apply for a license.
For years following the
,2003 invasion, the Iraqi
government followed the
basic policy of allowing
one gun per household.
Iraq military units search-
ing a house would often
tell people that if they had
one weapon it was OK,
but additional weapons
would be confiscated.
But the top military
spokesman in Baghdad,
Maj. Gen. Qassim, al-
Moussawi, said authori-
ties were now moving
away from that unofficial
policy and had recently
started a campaign to dis-
arm Iraqi cities.
But that's not stopping
the stockpiling of guns
and ammo. A senior offi-
cial in Iraq's military intel-
ligence department said
in recent months illegal
arms sales have jumped,
specifically AK-47 assault
rifles and pistols.

Tanks, troops try
to snuff uprising
The Associated Press
- Syrian tanks and the
government's most loyal
troops pushed into more
towns and villages Tues-
day, trying to snuff out any
chance that the uprising
against President Bashar
Assad could gain a base for
a wider armed rebellion.
Facing the most serious
threat to his family's 40-
year ruling dynasty, Assad
has abandoned most pre-.
tenses of reform as his
military seals off strategic
areas in the north and east
- including the town of
Jisr al-Shughour, which
was spinning out of gov-
ernment control, before
the military moved in on
"The (Syrian forces) dam-
age homes and buildings,
kill even animals, set trees
and farmlands on fire,"
said Mohammad Hesnawi,

spoke to The Associated
Press from this border area
of Turkey, where some
8,000 Syrians are seeking
refuge in camps.
citing witnesses, said the
military also surrounded
al-Boukamal, along the
Iraqi border, an area that
was a major smuggling
route for insurgents and
weapons into Iraq in the
2000s. Syrian officials have
expressed concern over a
reverse flow of arms into
Syria, and in March secu-
rity forces seized a large
quantity of weapons hid-
