Train cars derail


Eight cars on a CSX train derailed in
Grand Ridge before 7:30 a.m. on Sat-
urday. No one was injured.
The train contained several chemi-
cal shipments, bringing the Jack-
son County Sheriff's Office, Jackson
County Emergency Management,
Grand Ridge Fire Department, Jack-
son County Fire Rescue, Marianna
Fire Department, Sneads Fire Depart-

ment and several other first respond-
ers to assess the scene.
As of noon on Saturday, the only
chemical that spilled was PVC pellets.
Jackson County Sheriff Lou. Roberts
said the pellets would be vacuumed
up by environmental services.
Jackson County Fire Chief Tony
Wesley said there was a slim chance
righting the cars would cause another
spill, as CSX planned to stabilize the
cars first. If a more serious spill didn't
happen during the derailment, it was

unlikely to happen now, he said.
About 400 feet of track needs to be
replaced. Roberts said CSX planned
to fix the track and bring in special
equipment to put the cars back on the
track. CSX spokesman Bob Sullivan
said crews were on their way to have
service restored by Sunday morning.
Sullivan said the two-locomo-
tive 48-car train was going from
New Orleans to Waycross, Ga. The
.cause of the derailment is still under

It's not good to get
caught up in measuring
yourself with anyone
else. There are times,
when someone in a
particular family excels
in academics, sports,
music or in some other
way, that people will feel
that the other members
of that family will auto-
matically be blessed with
those same talents. In
some instances a family
is blessed with talented
members throughout;
but in other instances
there might only be one
member of the fam-
ily who is talented in a
certain area.
Each of us should look
for our individual talents
and work toward using
them the best way we
can. Many people have
stumbled and fallen

What makes another
person happy could
make you sad; and what
makes them sad could

Being comfortable
with who you are as an
individual allows you to
eliminate some of the
many pressures life can
bring. Challenging your-
self to reach the highest
goals you feel you are ca-
pable of, and doing your
very best to obtain those
goals, will give you the
pride to feel good about
you. Put God first in Nour
life, put the things of life
in the proper perspec-
the and be thankful as
you move forward while
working to reach positive
goals in your life.

When you need money for something important, should
you borrow from your 401(k)? True, such loans are
often available, and the interest rates are usually lower
than lenders offer. But it's usually a bad idea.
First, you'd lose any investment gains on the 401(k)
until the loan is paid back. Second, should you lose
your job or leave the company, you'd have to pay back
the loan almost immediately or the loan turns into
a withdrawal taxed as income, plus a 10-percent
penalty if you are under 59/2.
There are exceptions, though, like a short-term
disability or a real financial hardship crushing and
continuing medical bills, for instance. If the medical
expenses exceed 7.5 percent of your adjusted gross
income, it would be possible to make a withdrawal
penalty-free equal to the amount that your medical
expenses exceed the 7.5 percent floor. It would be
taxable as regular income, however.
When financial decisions have tax consequences, it's
smart to talk with the- experts at..

Guest Opinion

Candidate Paul wrong

about two-man race
R republicans are just starting the exciting job of
picking the best candidate to represent them
in November. Tuesday's strong victory by Mitt
Romney in New Hampshire eliminated no one. U.S.
Rep. Ron Paul of Texas came in second to the former
governor of Massachusetts and is making far too much
of it. Paul's campaign chairman urged the rest of the
field to drop out and make Paul the single "conservative
alternative" to Romney. That's bad advice for the party,
which still hasn't decided what its priorities will be in
the November election, other than defeating President
Jesse Benton, head of Paul's campaign, said, "The
race is becoming more clearly a two-man race between
establishment candidate Mitt Romney and Ron Paul,
the candidate of authentic change. That means there is
only one true conservative choice."
Conservative Republicans-do remain divided, but it's
wishful thinking to say Paul's bold ideas would unite
them. Paul is unlike conservative hawks and would be
at odds with many religious conservatives. He's right
that if his doctrines were enacted that would consti-
tute major change. That's mostly because they're not
changes most members of his own party want to make.
Paul's campaign is well organized. He is consistent in
his philosophy and highly principled. His plan would
drastically cut federal expenses. His name is well
known, and his supporters are loyal. But their numbers
are limited to those of libertarian bent, many of whom
don't feel at home in the GOP.
The South Carolina primary on Jan. 21 will give a
better idea of who is the favorite of religious conserva-
tives, and a diverse Republican electorate in Florida
on Jan. 31 will have important things to say about each
candidate's electability. If Gov. Rick Perry can't find a
solid base of support in either of those Southern states,
he would be wise to pack it in and return to Texas. But
not yet.
Big differences remain in style and substance 4mong
the candidates. None is as distinctly different as is Paul.
He wants to eliminate the departments of education,
energy, commerce, health and human services, home-
land security, emergency management, and the IRS and
the Federal Reserve. He believes in gold and silver, not
paper money.
Paul is opposed to the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan
and would not have authorized the mission to kill
Osama bin Laden. He would sharply whack the defense
budget, allow free travel to Cuba and permit gambling
on the Internet. He wants to call off the war on drugs,
increase the power of states, have senators selected
by state legislatures instead of by direct vote, quit the
World Trade Organization and phase outVA hospitals.
He would let people opt out of Social Security and allow
private companies to directly compete with the U.S.
Postal Service. He was also opposed to the Civil Rights
Act of 1964 and has not condemned controversial racial
statements made by some supporters.
The many out-of-the-mainstream stands Paul takes
would be big, easy targets for Obama to ridicule.
Republicans would be on the defensive all fall. Only if
Paul begins to win majority support in primaries would
there be any hope of implementing most planks of his
That's not to say he's bad for the party. Independents
and Democrats were allowed to vote in the New Hamp-
shire primary, and Paul won more independents than
Romney. That suggests he could attract and energize
voters who don't consider themselves Republican. But
among New Hampshire voters who consider them-
selves conservative, Romney got 42 percent to Paul's
19 percent. At this point, Paul is not the candidate for
conservatives to rally around.
Former Utah Gov. Jon Huntsman, who came in third,
can't claim the job of conservative alternative; he was
the favorite of Democrats, despite a platform that is as
conservative as anyone in the field.
Something else for Republicans to think about go-
ing into South Carolina is what to make of attacks on
Romney Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich calls
Romney a greedy tycoon and a Massachusetts moder-
ate who cannot be trusted. Perry calls Romney a vulture
capitalist. Obama supporters are taking notes.
The S.C. scramble will be the most abrasive yet as
Gingrich, Perry and former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick
Santorum campaign to remain in the game. Paul, to his
credit, shows no signs of desperation. His support won't
evaporate. But Paul cannot expect to win broader ap-
peal. That means it's no two-man race. Far from it.

Letter to the Editor

Celebrate MLK holiday
When Republican
President Ronald Reagan
signed the Martin Luther
King Jr. holiday into law,
he was not only recogniz-
ing the man, he was cel-
ebrating the dream. That
dream still exists, as does
the fight that King led.
No, we are not fighting
the same style of fight that
King had to endure, but
we are still fighting for
equal rights for all Ameri-
cans, equal access for all
Americans and an oppor-
tunity for all Americans to
live the American Dream.
In August 1963, King
gave his famous "I Have a
Dream" speech, in which
he said, "I have a dream
that my four little children
will one day live in a na-
tion where they will not
be judged by the color of
their skin but by the con-
tent of their character."
Being from the "Deep
I South" I admit that,

regrettably, we have not
completely attained that
level of diversity. However,
we are much closer than
we were a generation ago.
It's my belief that with
a little bit of luck and the
hard work of every Ameri-
can, my daughter and her
friends will not under-
stand the harmful effects
of racial discrimination.
We are all Americans,
and that has to come be-
fore any racial descriptor.
It's important to rec-
ognize the strides King
made in helping us realize
that "all men are created
Please join me in cel-
ebrating not only the man
but also the dream of Dr.
Martin Luther King Jr.
Let us continue the
fight he led to eradicate
discrimination in all forms
and from all people's
hearts and minds.


Economic freedom declines in US

Good news! On economic free-

Bad news: America is No. 10 -

According to the 18th annual In-
dex of Economic Freedom, released
Thursday by the Heritage Founda-
tion and the Wall StreetJournal,
Hong Kong enjoys Earth's freest
economy. It invariably has topped
this list since 1995. No. 2 Singapore

America has slid from No. 9 in
2011 to 10th place today. Indeed,
this is the fourth consecutive year
in which the U.S. fell a notch. Out
of a perfect score of 100, America
declined 1.5 points to 76.3. Den-
mark, No. 11, scored 76.2.
"As recently as 2008, the United
States was ranked 7th, rated 81
and considered a 'free' economy,"
Heritage notes. "Today, it is 'mostly
free' the runner-up category."
The Index's authors add: "Fading
confidence in the government's
determination to promote or even
sustain open markets has dis-
couraged entrepreneurship and
dynamic investment within the
private sector."
U.S. tax-and-spend scores are
appalling: Among 179 countries
surveyed, America is No. 127 in
government spending and No. .133
in fiscal freedom. The U.S. suffers
an "overall tax burden amount-
ing to 24 percent of total domestic

ment expenditures have grown to
42.2 percent of GDP, and the budget
deficit is close to 10 percent of GDP.
Total public debt is now larger than
the size of the economy."
Meanwhile, U.S. business moans
beneath the regulatory rubble.
"Over 70 new major regulations
have been imposed since early
2009, with annual costs of more
than $38 billion."
Another problem: "Corruption is
a growing concern as the cronyism
and economic rent-seeking associ-
ated with the growth of government
have undermined institutional
integrity," the Index says.

Court sets clash between religious liberty

f only angels ran churches, the
Supreme Court's landmark rul-
ing that ministers may not sue
for job discrimination would be
less troubling.
Unfortunately, ordinary mortals
are in charge of religious institu-
tions, and, mortals sometimes need
a nudge to do the right thing. That's
why we have federal, state and lo-
cal laws prohibiting employment
But in the most significant
church-state ruling in years,
the court on Wednesday said all
government and that includes
the courts must stay out of
religious groups' decisions to
hire and fire ministers and other
leaders. The court also left the
decision of who qualifies as a
minister to the religious groups
themselves: Religious organizations
and their allies claimed a great
victory for religious liberty.
"If ministers were allowed to sue
for employment discrimination,
judges and juries would wind up
deciding who is a good minister,
worthy of retention, and who is
not," University of Virginia law
professor Douglas Laycock wrote
on CNN's Belief Blog. "These cases
end with a jury deciding whether
the employer had a good enough
reason to justify its decision."
Laycock represented Hosanna-
Tabor Evangelical Lutheran School
in Michigan in the Supreme Court
case. Cheryl Perich, a teacher, com-
plained to the Equal Employment
Opportunity Commission that she
was wrongly fired.
Perich was hired as a lay or con-
tract teacher and became a spiri-
tually "called" teacher. She took a
series of religious courses and was
commissioned as a "Minister of Re-
ligion." She mostly taught secular
classes and spent about 45 minutes

a day in religious duties, such as
leading her pupils in prayer.
She became sick with what
eventually was diagnosed as
narcolepsy and took disability
leave. When she was ready to
return, the school told her she
no longer had a position. She
threatened to sue, which went
against Lutheran principles
to resolve disputes internally,
and was fired. She went to the
EEOC, alleging she had been
discriminated against under the
Americans with Disabilities Act.
The EEOC brought suit against
the school, alleging that Perich
had been fired in retaliation for
threatening to sue. The Supreme
Court unanimously affirmed the
"ministerial exception," a legal
doctrine long ago accepted by
federal appeals courts that says the
First Amendment protects the right
of religious organizations to make
decisions to hire and fire clergy and
grants them an exception to laws
that prohibit job discrimination.
For example, the Catholic Church
has the right to decide who can
and can't be a priest, and a woman
who wants to be a priest can't sue
for gender discrimination. The Ho-
sanna-Tabor decision went farther,
saying the exception applies to
employment discrimination laws
on all levels.
Thus the court has put the coun-
try to a test of values. Employment
discrimination laws that protect
other workers will not apply to
employees in religious schools, col-
leges, hospitals and social service
agencies if employers deem the
workers to be ministers, priests,
rabbis, imams or other leaders.

"Blatant discrimination is a

Lynn said.

Paul Horwitz, say religious groups
should use their power carefully
and be sensitive in their behavior
toward ministers.
There are good reasons "to
avoid thinking of the state as the

to all problems, but taking that
step requires us to think much
more carefully about institutional

Toadlick Music Festival has man-
aged to secure well-known artists
like Dierks Bentley, Trace Adkins,
Rodney Atkins, Randy Travis,
Sara Evans, 38 Special, Sawyer
Brown and Craig Morgan.
Set for March 22-24, the Toad-
lick Music Festival will be held at
the National Peanut Festival Fair-
grounds in Dothan. So far, there
are 19 artists set to perform on
two stages over the three days.
- The peanut festival's midway
is being used as a campground
with 300 hook-ups for recre-
ational vehicles. The cattle barn
will be transformed into the
Toadlick Tavern with a stage for
local bands to perform. And,
a TIP Lily Pad Lounge (that's
Toadally Important People) will.
be open in an adjacent building
for those who purchase TIP tick-
ets, which cost $545 and provide


access to premium parking, con-
cert seats, an unlimited buffer
of heavy hors d'oeurvres in the
lounge as well as a full bar and
private restrooms. Organizers
are even giving away a 2011 Cor-
vette to pique interest.
But how did a group of people
with a background in construc-
tion get into the music festival
It started with Gilbert.
Gilbert owns Gilbert Construc-
tion Co. in Dothan. A hunting
friend in Texas had wanted to
enter a business venture in Ala-
bama with Gilbert. A construc-
tion-based venture didn't seem
like a good idea with the current
economy, so last April, Gilbert
started thinking about a music
festival something he had
long wanted to see in Dothan.
"This is an endeavor we all took
on that we knew nothing about,"
Gilbert said. ... We knew the
concept of what we wanted. We
wanted a good, clean festival,

and we wanted it at the peanut
So, Gilbert approached some
relatives to help draw uD a busi-
ness plan \\iregrass Truss
ov.ner Priscilla Isler and her
daughter. Hunter Smith, who is
Gilbert's third cousin. Then he
approached his hunting buddy
businessman Ronnie Mc-
Glothlin, who started the com-
mercial roofing company Em-
pire Roofing in Fort Worth,. Texas,
in the 1980s and which counts
Honda among its customers.
McGlothlin liked the idea and
put his support behind it.
Isler said the -organizers ap-
proached planning for Toad-
lick like they would any other
"We're pretty much going with
that -theory of business," Isler
said. "We know what it takes to
pull it off. We just have to pull it

tions in Hendersonville, Tenn.,

signed on- with an emphasis
on keeping the business end as
local as possible. Merchandise
and food vendors were sought,
and Hunter Smith's brother, Trip
Smith, put up a Facebook page
for Toadlick.
Advertising was done in cities
around the Southeast.
But, you ask, how did they
come up with that name? No, it's
not a reference to toads that sup-
posedly produce hallucinogenic
venom through their skins. The
name came out of a brainstorm-
ing session.
"We had some horrible ones,"
Isler said.
It was Hunter Smith, who is the
festival's director of operations,
who blurted out the words. The
name, she said, just popped
in her head. Everybody liked
the mix of fun and uniqueness.


And, Isler said, they didn't know
anything about hallucinogenic
toads. The festival's website dis-
courages toad-licking for any
It was Isler who found the toad
image that came to represent
the festival a yellowish fellow
with red eyes, propping his head
up with his hand and his elbow
on one knee. Isler found it on
the Internet, drawn by Glasgow,
United Kingdom, artist Jennifer
Kilgour. Isler bought the copy-
rights to the toad artwork.

set to return in June after being
canceled last year, are bound
to occur. Organizers, however,
said they can't worry about such

Special to the Floridan
The Supportive Services for Veteran
Families Program is in full operation for
Jackson, Washington, Holmes and Cal-
houn counties at the Community Re-
source Center, located at 2985 Guyton St.
in Marianna.
Case management and direct financial
assistance are now available for eligible
area veterans who are homeless or at risk
to become homeless. The purpose of the.

SSVF Program is to provide housing sta-
bility to homeless and at-risk veterans
and their families for Jackson, Washing-
ton, Holmes, and Calhoun counties.
Based on eligibility veterans and their
families may be provided temporary
financial assistance for rent, security
and utility deposits, utility fees, mov-
ing costs, emergency supplies, and
transportation. ,
Veteran families should call 850-763-
0475 for screening and appointment.

Beneficiaries may receive

benefits from farmers market


The Marianna City Farmers Market is
asking those who would like to use their
SNAP, or Supplemental Nutrition Assis-
tance Program, benefits at the farmers
market in the coming year to let officials
know. .
The market may purchase the equip-
ment needed to scan SNAP cards. It has
the opportunity to receive the machine
for free if it can prove to the USDA that it
can make $100 a month from SNAP ben-
efits. The machine normally costs about
$1,000 said Eric Toole, president of the
Jackson County Growers Association.
SNAP beneficiaries would scan their
card and receive tokens for whatever
amount they requested.
They would exchange those tokens
with Farmer Market members, w4
would then be reimbursed by the Farm-
ers Market.
"They can get a better product, a fresher
product and it benefits a local producer,"
Tople said.
Toole said he needs the responses by
March 1. It takes between 45 and 50 days
to receive the machine and the market
plans to be open mid-April. ,
"We'd love to have these benefits open

to becoming a regional farmers market.

Book Review

A truth stranger

than fiction

The Lynching of
Claude Neal: The
1934 Murders of
Claude Neal and Lola
Cannady'by Dale Cox
Every novelist has heard
stories drawn from the
woof and warp of real life
that are far stranger than
fiction. Jackson County is
home to such a story -
the 1934 rape and murder
of Malone farm girl, Lola
Cannady, and- the bru-
tal lynching of the young
man accused of killing her,
Claude Neale. The mur-
ders, bestial in nature, and
committed within a week
of each other, sparked a
rash of racial violence so
notorious that, till this day,
local citizens hesitate to
discuss it with outsiders, -
and often quote the old
saw about "letting sleeping
dogs lie."
Local son and Southern
historian Dale Cox has
begged to differ.
After 10books onsubjects
as diverse as ghost stories,
the'history of Tw6 Egg and
The Battle of Marianna,
he has turned his hand at
penning an account of the
most enduring ghost story
'of all,. The Lynching of,
Claude Neal (Old Kitchen
Books, 2011.)
Cox is a native of Two Egg,
and \vith a minimum of.
embellishment, recounts
the details of the murder
of -the 19-year-old Can-
nady, who was out water-
ing the family hogs'when
she was brutally attacked
and bludgeoned to death
on Oct. 1-; 1934.
Even before her body
was recovered., suspicion
had fallen on 23-year-old
Claude Neal, a black farm-
hand whose great-aunt
lived across the fence.

and Tea and on Amazon)

physical evidence and,
from the moment of his ar-
rest by Sheriff Flake Cham-
bliss, was hotly pursued by
a group of local men intent
on vigilante violence who
christened themselves The
Committee of Six. For the
better part of a week, they
tracked Neal from onelo--
cal jail to another, finally
to Brewton, where they,
abducted him at gunpoint
with dynamite in hand.
An invitation to Neal's
lynch party was broadcast
locally and drew a crowd
numbering in the thou-
sands to the Cannady fatm.
The Committee of Six, who
held Neal captive at a near-
by abandoned riverboat
landing, became -wary of
the size of the crowd, arid
decided to kill him them-
selves, by means of nearly
incomprehensible torture.
They carried his body to
the Cannady farm and left
it for the crowd of would-
be lynchers, who were
furious they had been
deprived of their prey. In
a thumb of their noses
at both the Committee
and the Sheriff, they took
Neal's mutilated corpse to
the courthouse square in
downtown Marianna, and
tied it to a tree a block from
the sheriff's office.
News of the "courthouse
lynching" quickly circuldat-
ed. and downtown Mari-
anna soon erupted into a
day of racial Oiolence so
intent that National Guard
soldiers \ith machineguns
were called to control it.
A photograph of Neal's
strung-up corpse, taken by
a local newspaper editor,

Neal was implicated by sent shock %atves across

the nation. The NAACP
sent a special investigator
down, and governors of
both Florida and Alabama
promised arrests, but the
grand jury failed to indict
a single member of the
Committee of Six or arrest
anyone in connection with
the riots.
In the absence of legal
answers, an entire subcul-
ture of gossip and specu-
lation grew up around the
murders, along with sev-
eral historical dissections-
and one full-length book,
Anatomy of a Lynching
(LSU'Press, 1979) by Pro-
fessor James McGovern,
long considered the defini-
tive work.
Cox had grown up in the
shadow of the speculation,
and as a young reporter in
the early 1980s began gath-
ering evidence from avari-
ety of sources, including.
the first-hand accounts of
members of the Neal and
Cannady families, and two
"surviving members of the
Committee of Six.
The result is a carefully
drawn chronological his-
tory 'that does not overly'
concern itself with the psy-.
chology of either victim or
killer, but offers a simple
structure and serting --lit-
erally, include -gniaps to
a week punctuated by mno-
ments so'savage they are
nearly incomprehensible.
Cox does not pretend to be-
the last \\ord, but invites
other books' other inter-
pretations, maiJing for a
book which does what all
good books are meant to
do: it compels dialogue.
It does not let sleeping
dogs lie.

UF, FSU presidents suggest

higher STEM tuition

dents of Florida's two
leading research universi-
ties suggested Friday that
lawmakers let them pay
for expanding expensive
science, technology, en-
gineering and math pro-
grams by charging those
so-called STEM students
higher tuition.
University of Florida's
Bernie Machen and
Florida State Univer-
sity's Eric Barron also
told the House Educa-
tion Committee their
schools and possibly
some others should be
allowed'to bring up tu-
ition rates, now among
the lowest in the nation,
closer to the national
average. Current. law
lets. the Legislature and
Board of Governors ap-
prove annual increases
totaling no more than
15 percent.
Gov. Rick Scott, who
has made job creation
his top priority, has been
pushing universities to

duction because there's

believe \iOLld
dis courage -tLuderunt

areas. Instead, they said,
it would make those pro-
grams more attractive
and successful.
'A STEM degree person
should pay more for that
than they would, say. an
education degree," Ma-
chen told the panel. "If
you look at return on in-
vestment after gradua-
tion, look at the pent-up
demand for STEM hires,

you can make a good case
that since that program
costs more you ought to
have a (higher) tuition for
those programs."
Barrori said students
taking lower cost human-
ities courses now are sub-
sidizing STEM students
because their tuition rates
are the same. Expanding
STEM w6uld exacerbate
that inequity.

Commissioner Jeremy Branch said
late Thursday that he'd been told
by someone in authority at the
Department of Corrections that all
the jobs will be saved in a melt-

confidence is high that this will be
possible. Others have heard a lower
number, and that about half the -
employees will instead be offered
positions at state prisons in Liberty
and Calhoun counties. -
The closures will be phased in
starting next month, employees
were advised in a letter from DOC
secretary Kenneth S. Tucker.
Tucker said in the letter that
the department "is going to work
-diligently to place ... employees
into positions they maybe quali-
fied for within the department,"
,.but went on to say that "At this
point, we cannot guarantee that all
displaced employees will be able
to find a new position within (the
department) but we will be in close
communication with you and your
supervisors as we work through the
process of implementation of this
consolidation effort."
Tucker said there will be 116,000
beds available in Florida prisons
as of October, while the inmate
population is expected tobe a little
below 100,000 through 2016.
In his letter, Tucker listed the
facilities due for closure, and said
they were selected based on "a

Some of those who continue to

efforts will be in vain.

his potential customer base. Situ-
ated on U.S. 90 across the road
from the entrance to River Junction
Work Camp, his business will not
get at least a passing glance from
those 80 employees every workday.
On the other end of town, River-
side Food Mart convenience store
owner Abdulla Atef said he's con-
sidered finding another town to
set up shop. "It's definitely bad," he
said of the pending camp closure.
"We're already suffering from the
people losing their jobs at the hos-
pital. Used to. my customers would
sometimes be lined up to the back
of the store waiting to check out.
It's not like that anymore. I already
feel it, and there's been basically
no profit margin for the past three
years. i've thought about relocat-
ing. I've had to cut my staff from
15 to 11 people. I don't know what
we're all goingto do, really."
Chattahoochee Pawn and Gun
owner Tim Mlercer, who lives in
Sneads, said he doesn't think the
closure is going to do anything
positive for his business. Some
people, he acknowledged might
think that he'll see an influx of
merchandise he can sell for a profit
after displaced workers start look-
ing for household items to offload
for cash. Not likely, he said. In-
stead, he fears that he will have to
turn most people away. The pawn
business is keyed these days to
gold, jewelry and guns, he said. He
can't afford to fill his shelves with
merchandise that, in some cases,
he feels, will be unmovable in his
trade. He doe-s n't look forward to
saying no. He's one of those who
worries that the answer to that
other, troublesome old question
might be 'yes.'
"I just don't know what's going to
happen, but I know I'm worried."
he said. "A closure like this will af-
fect a small town a whole lot more
than it will a big town. Every job is
very important. There's not much
way to absorb a loss like this. We've
already seen more than our share."

we have to, ultimately, we'll lay out
a game plan for a fight, but I have it-
first-hand and fresh that nobody is
going to lose their job. I have pretty

Betty Goodnight and Nichole
Parrish, both state employees, find
themselves with a set of concerns
that causes them internal conflict.
Goodnight, who works at Florida
State Hospital, and Parrish, who
works at ACI, say they feel bad for
the people who will be displaced in
the camp's closure. But at the same
time, theyworry about their own
job security and the possibility that
they could be "bumped" from their
jobs by people with more seniority
as the state tries to place the camp.
Goodnight described her feeling
as "guarded but sympathetic."
"Some of us were talking about
this. They'll have to go somewhere,
and where will that be? Maybe
right here tat Florida State Hospi-
tal). I've been working for the state
off and on for 15 years, and I have
to admit that I worry for myself
even though I feel for these people.
It's just so frustrating."
SGoodnight said she's feeling
especially bitter right now about
state agencies and some of the
changes they're making.
"They're going to bend you over .
without a kiss," she said.
Parrish said she's worked five
years at ACI, and has heard that
"bumping" could be in play as jobs
are sorted out after the closure.
"] feel for the people," she said.
"It's rough, but of course you worry
for yourself. Everybody should be
worried about what's happening to
this town as a whole."
Back in Jackson County, Com-
missioner Branch said he is hoping
that the information he received
about ACI fully absorbing employ-
ees, with no bumping, is correct.
He remembers the last time that
word came of a closure. In that
instance about a year ago, Branch
organized a rally when a rumor
surfaced that ACT would be closed.
Although ACI ultimately wasn't
shut down, he remembers the
upheaval that the perceived threat
of closure caused.
"It's extremely troubling that
we're going to have to go down
this road again," he said. "Work-
ers and families here in northwest
Florida can't have peace of mind
about their jobs anymore. It's
just unfortunate that Tailahas -

Bondi says no slot machines

The Associated Press

TALLAHASSEE Florida law doesn't al-
low slot machines at pari-mutuel facilities
outside Miami-Dade and Broward coun-
ties, Attorney General Pam Bondi said in
an advisory opinion Thursday.
Bondi wrote that the state cannot issue
slot machine licenses to a barrel racing
_Fciliy,' and dog track even if voters in two
Panhandle counties give their approval
later this month. A law allowing for ap-
proval of slots through countywide ref-
erendums applies only to the two South
Florida counties, she concluded.
Such votes are scheduled for the Jan.
31 presidential primary in Gadsden and
Washington counties.
Marc Dunbar, a lawyer and part owner
of Gretna Racing in Gadsden, disagreed.
"Fortunately, the Supreme Court has
ruled on many occasions that these ad-
visory opinions have no binding effect,"
Dunbar said in a statement.
Department of Business and Profes-
sional Regulation Secretary Ken Lawson
said his agency, which regulates pari-mu-
tuel wagering, was still reviewing Bondi's
opinion but that he intended to follow
her guidelines.
The Washington County referendum
is for slots at Ebro Greyhound Track. At
least two other counties, Palm Beach and
Hamilton, are planning similar votes later
this year.
Dunbar saidhe looked forward to meet-
ing Bondi "'in court, where law, not poli-
tics will ultimately decide the issue." '
If so, it u-ould be one more in a grow-,
inglist of legal cases triggered by state ap-
proval last year of betting on barrel rac-
ing, a women's rodeo event, at the Gretna
facility. That %a-s followed by auIhority to
open a card room.

ties now have applied for barrel racing
A pair of organizations of traditional,

mit before an administrative law judge.
They contend the facility's owners are us-
ing barrel racing as a low-cost way to get
around racing regulations to qualify for
the more lucrative card room and possi-
bly slots..
Related cases are pending in trial and
appellate courts in Tallahassee.
Bondi's opinion cited the law's plain lan-
guage and legislative intent expressed by:
its sponsor during floor debate in 2010.
Sen. Dennis Jones, R-Seminole, then
said the, Legislature would have to pass
another law if it intended to allow a slots

different view.
"I worked closely on-the bill that g ave

School nurses are urging parents to, vaccinate their preteens-and teens

(ARA) School nurses are urging parents to vaccinate
their preteens and teens against meningococcal disease,
a rare bul polenlially life-threatening bacterial infection thal
can cause meningitis and take a child's life in just a single
day. Cases of rreningococcal disease begin to peak during
the late-winter and early-spring months, so now is a perfect
time to be sure children have been vaccinated.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention iCDC)
recommends that preteens and teens get vaccinated
beginning at age 11 with a booster dose by 18 years of
age. Despite this recommendation, more than a third of
teens 13-17 years of age in this country have not been
vaccinated against meningitis, leaving far too many children
"Parents may be unaware about the impntilanced of
meningococcal vaccination, and that public health officials
now recommend a booster dose by 18 years of age," said
Linda Davis-Alldritt, MA, BSN, RN, FNASN, FASHA, and
President of the National Association of School Nurses
(NASN). "School nurses nationwide have joined within
families affected by meningitis and public health officials to.
educate communities about the dangers of meningitis and,
the need for vaccination"'
Gaitley Batton knows all too well the dangers of this
disease she contracted meningitis on New Year's Day
as a child. Granley was fortunate to survive, but. not without-
consequence she had to have her leg amputated below
the knee due to tissue damage caused by the disease.
Gaitley and her mother Heidi Moody have joined the
NASN's Voices of Meningitis campaign, in collaboration
with Sanofi Pasteur, to raise awareness about the disease
and the importance of vaccination for preteens and teens.
"I continue to live with the lasting effects of this disease
every day," said Batton. "No one should have to go through
what my family and I did, which is why I'm sharing my story.
Vaccination is the best way to help protect preteens and
teens from this disease."
About 10 percent of the 1000 to 1200 Americans who
get meningococcal meningitis each year will die. Like
Gaitley, many who survive this disease one in five are
left with serious medical problems, including amputation of
limbs, brain damage, deafness, and organ damage.
Adolescents are thought to be at increased risk for
- I. ."merningitis because of common, everyday activities they
engage in ithm other teens, like sharing drinking glasses

and kissing, since meningocc'ccal bacteria are spread from
person to person through close contact. Not getting enough
sleep can also increase tner risk. of getting the disease. A
national telephone survey found trha nearly 82 percent of
teens engage in many of these activities. The result? Teens
put themselves at risk for gening meningitis every day,
making vaccination all the more important..
"Winler break is a greal time to get preteens and teens
vaccinated and parents need to know .that any health-
care visit is an opportunity t'o discuss vaccination," said
Moody. "Parents should make it their priority to schedule a
vaccination appointment. Don't wait. do it today."

Beach 'excited' to take over Tigers


The Graceville Tigers have a
new football coach.
Former Hernando High School
assistant coach Mark Beach was
picked to lead the Tiger football
program late Thursday after-
noon after GHS principal Chris
Franklin selected him from an
initial pool or 45 applicants.
Beach, who graduated from
Springstead High School in
Spring Hill in 1990, spent the last

as an assis-
tant under
coach John

and previ-
ously spent
five sea-
@JCFSports sons as an
assistant at
High School in Mayo.
As offensive coordinator
in 2011, Beach helped lead

Hernando to an 8-3 record and
the school's first district champi-
onship in 14 seasons.
Beach's offense. a variation of
the Wing-T, amassed over 3,400
yards and 44 touchdowns rush-
ing on the season.
Franklin said he was very ex-
cited by what Beach could bring
to the Tiger program.
"We had some good people
apply, but he was just really im-
pressive with the enthusiasm he
brought," the principal said. "As
far as references, I've never had

so many people volunteer to
call me and tell me such glowing
things about someone. I think
he'll do very well with us."
Beach said he couldn't wait to
get to Graceville to get started on
trying to build the Tiger program
back into a 1A power.
"I think it's awesome. I'm su-
per excited and my family is
excited to come up," he said.
"We're ready to get that tradition
back to Graceville High School.
My family wanted to go back
to a smaller community where

there's obviously a good football
tradition and a chance to make a
difference in the community."
After graduating high school,
Beach played junior college
football at Kemper Military Col-
lege in Boonville, Mo., and got
his Bachelor's Degree from Nova
Southeastern University.
He worked for a time as a
physical therapist before getting
into coaching in 1997 as a junior
varsity coach at East Lake High

Marianna sneaks by Graceville


The Marianna Bulldogs snapped a
two game losing skid and swept their
season series with the Graceville Tigers
in the process Friday night, outlasting
GHS 49-48 in Graceville.
The Bulldogs led .throughout but
could never completely shake free of
the pesky Tigers, who fell below .500 to
8-9 on the season with the loss.
Marianna improved to 8-7 on the
Trae' Pringley had 12 points to lead
Marianna, with Anthony Speights add-
ing 10 points, and Quay Royster eight.
Marquis White had 14 points for
Graceville, while Marquavious Johnson
added 12.
Marianna led 25-16 at halftime, 37-32
at the end of three, and by as much as
eight points in the fourth, but the Tigers
were able to stay close with pressure
defense and some hot shooting late.
"We had a chance to put it away, but
we didn't take care of the ball very well
and they made some shots late that
helped them get back in it," MHS coach
Travis Blanton said. "We were a little
careless with the ball, but we perse-
vered, and you take a win any way you
can get it now."
Graceville coach Matt Anderson

lauded his team's fourth quarter re-
solve, but said that his players weren't
ready to play at the start of the game.
"I didn't think wve came out with a lot
of fire early on. It just felt like the con-
cenUation level was not very high,"
he said. "We missed some very easy
shots and quite a few free throws, but
for some reason we were able to stay in
the game. It was the same old'story for
us. We had some open shots, but just
didn't make many of them until right at
the end.
"But we didn't give up -and we didn't
quit. The kids fought hard."
It was the second time that the Tigers
had a good opportunity to take a win
over the Bulldogs, having led by five
points late in the fourth quarter of the
first meeting before coughing up the
lead in a loss.
' Anderson said it was tough to swal-
low, losing both games given the close-
ness of the outcomes.
. "You would think that if you play that
close that you're going to at least win
one of the two and things will fall your
way to at least get a split, so that is frus-
trating," he said.
Graceville will be off until a district
game Friday at home against Ponce De
Leon, while the Bulldogs will play host
to the Walton Braves on Tuesday in a
key District 1-4A game.

The Sneads Lady Pirates coasted to a
53-14 victory over the Blountstown Lady

periods to blow the game wide open.
Sneads led just 9-8 through one pe-
riod, but outscored Blountstown 19-4
in the second quarter to take a 16-point
halftime lead.
It was more of the same in the third, as
the Lady Pirates outscored the Lady Ti-
gers 25-2 to take a 53-14 advantage into
the fourth period.
Neither team scored in the game's
final quarter.

Sportsmen come in all ages

It was not, by most shark
standards, a really big fish.
On modified bass tackle,
however, the 4-foot, 20-plus
pound shovelnose was gra-
ciously plenty for the young
angler to handle. The battle
between kid and fish lasted a
full 12 minutes before the shark
called it quits and allowed itself
to be led alongside the boat.
A satisfied look of accomplish-
ment illuminated the 13-year-
old fisherman's countenance
as he pumped the rod one last
time and finally raised the sleek,
prehistoric-looking sea crea-
ture to the ocean's surface. The
boy, energetic teen though he
was, was obviously tired after
the hard-won contest. He was
clearly relieved to have it over
and done.
There was little else to be done
now except gaff the equally
exhausted shark and hoist it
aboard the 21-foot Carolina
Skiff, from which the youngster
and his companions had spent
the entire morning fishing the

choppy waters off Georgia's St.
Simons Island. Naturally, there
were smiles to be smiled and
photos to be taken.
The man had watched the
battle between worthy fish and
youthful angler from its begin-
ning to its now-near conclusion.
He found himself gazing into
the dull, fearless, somewhat
baleful eye of the shovelnose
as it weakly struggled, now and
then striking the boat's sides
with halfhearted slaps of its
rudder-like tail fin. The optical
orb seemed to intermittently
lighten and darken as it rolled
above the elongated snout with
its multiple rows of short, sharp
teeth. The man returned the

fish's stare and went back a few
moments in time.
The young fisherman, an ac-
complished and skilled angler
despite his age, first hooked the
shark while bottom-fishing for
whiting. All morning long, the
bait shrimp and other natural
offerings had proven just as
irresistible to smaller sharks,
stingrays, jack crevalle, and the
occasional bluefish. As the hook
was set in this fish, however, it
was immediately obvious it was
much larger than the tiny bon-
netheads and juvenile blacktips
hooked and landed earlier.
As the shovelnose struck and
turned head-down against the
pressure of the heavy-action
bass rod, the boy leaned firmly
backward against the steady
pull of the fish and wisely let
the rod perform the lion's share
of the work. The wire-leader-
tipped, 20-pound test monofila-
ment spooled smoothly from
the old Ambassadeur baitcast-
ing reel as the drag worked for
the fisherman and against the

shark. The kid took line when he
could and gave it when neces-
sary. He deftly dropped the rod
tip when the strong fish sound-
ed and pulled upward from the
shoulders when his opponent
reluctantly and grudgingly gave
The guide, looking on with
the cool, nonchalant eye of an
old hand, looked around at the
"He fishes well," the old salt
Nice tribute from a man of few
The boy looked around and
briefly nodded his gratitude.
The battle continued. The boy
had taken bigger fish than this
one; some, in fact from these
same waters. But not on such
light tackle. He was acutely
(even adultly) aware the shovel-
nose was a good match for his
equipment. Relatively speaking,
this fish was the equal of the
135-pound tarpon he'd landed
almost a year before.
The young angler fought the

shark adroitly and with deter-
mination, coolly concealing
the childlike excitement ready
to burst forth at any moment.
Then, at last, the fish was drawn
close by, where it lay on its side,
totally spent. The boy at last
could lean over and take a really
good look at the creature he had
long moments ago challenged
and bested. When he did, his
eye locked in on that same bale-
ful shark-stare still holding his
adult companion spellbound.
"Let's get him," growled the
guide, leaning over the gunwale
with the gleaming, strike-poised
"No, sir, wait," the boy said.
"Release him."
"You sure?"
A second's hesitation, then
a definite nodded affirmative.
Next, a knowing smile at the
man looking over his shoulder.
What a shame it's not "cool" to
hug a 13-year-old boy in macho
company. For awhile, the proud
wink his father gave him would
just have to do.

SMy Children's' Lucci

to host 'real-life soap'

The Associated Press

NEWYORK- "All My Children" veteran
Susan Lucci is returning to the world of
soap operas. But this time, the stories will
be real.
Lucci will host and narrate "Deadly Af-
fairs," a new prime-time series airing on
Investigation Discovery. The show will ex-
plore true stories of romance gone wrong
and the crimes of passion that resulted,
the network announced Thursday.'
"They are deceptive love relationships,
love triangles and betrayal that have
deadly consequences," Lucci said. "And
they end in tragedy.
"Every day you hear these stories and
you think, 'Oh, my goodness!' Then they
disappear. You don't know what hap-
pened next, and you don't know why they
happened. I'm hoping that, in exploring
them, we'll shed some light on human
Lucci won lasting fame as devious, of-
ten-wed Erica Kane throughout the run of
daytime drama "All My Children," which
aired from 1970 until ABC canceled it last
"As Erica, I got punished for my wrong
deeds," Lucci noted. "I wound up in jail
several times, even in a blood-stained ball
gown. But with 'Deadly Affairs,' these are
not characters on a soap opera. This. is
real life."
Describing her new show as a "real-life
soap," she called her hosting role "a per-
fect match," adding, "I couldn't help but
smile" after getting the series offer.
Filming of the 10-episode season is ex-
pected to begin in March, with its pre-
miere slated for this fall, Investigation
Discovery said. '

Dear Annie: Among my joys as President
Barack Obama's Secretary of Veterans
Affairs is the chance to see the expres-
sions of gratitude from Amrericans of all
walks of life for the service and sacrifices
made by our military veterans. This hap-
pens every day- from small gestures of
thanks to hours of volunteer service at
our many veterans facilities.
As Americans, we owe a debt of grati-
tude to the rmen andwomen who have
worn the uniform on our behalf. Veterans
always appreciate heartfelt recognition
of their service.
Each February. many of your readers
join the National.Salute to Veteran
Patients. This program encourages
Americans to isit and volunteer at the
Department of veterans Affairs medical
centers and to send letters of thanks or
valentines to those who have protected
our nation. This year's national salute is
Feb. 12-18. Last year, more than 328,000
valentines were received atVA medical
centers, and 21,330 people visited nearly
7,0,000 veteran patients. That was an
overwhelming increase from 2009, and
I thank you and your readers for your
work in bringing attention to this worthy
The purpose of the national salute is
threefold: to pay tribute and express
appreciation to veterans, to increase
community awareness of the role of
VA medical centers, and to encourage'
citizens to visit hospitalized veterans and
become involved as volunteers. Since
1978, the salute has presented Americans
another opportunity to say "thank you"
to our veterans and to those who give
them care. I encourage your thoughtful
readers to take some time this February
to honor our veterans. And once again,
Annie, thank you for your support of this
outstanding program.
For more information regarding the
National Salute to Veteran Patients and
volunteer opportunities at a localVA
medical center, please visit the VAVolun-
tary Service Web page at www.volunteer.

In this Oct. 18,2011 photo, actress Susan Lucci
attends the SiriusXM reopening of Studio 54
for "One Night Only" at Studio 54 in New York

Lucci also has guest shots on the Life-
time drama "Army Wives" and TV Land's
sitcom "Hot in Cleveland." But she has
closed .the book on Erica Kane after 41
"I miss Erica tremendously," she said.
"That's the same thing I hear from people
I meet."
AnJother long-running ABC soap, "One
Life to Live," comes to an end Friday, but
Lucci expressed confidence that the soap
opera genre will endure..
"If it has good writing and good produc-
tion values," she said, "it has a future."'

Dear Secretary Shinseki: Every year, our.
readers make us proud .with their out-
pouring of appreciation for our veterans,
through the Valentines forVets program.
\Ve know they will come through again.
Support for our veterans transcends
politics. These men and women deserve
our thanks and appreciation. Sending
a valentine or, beer yet, visiting our
veterans or volunteering at one of the VA
medical facilities is a wonderful way to
express our gratitude to those who have
served our country. The veterans w would
be especially thrilled if you could spend
a few minutes listingg and talking about
their families and hometowns.. Tell them
how much you appreciate their service.
Teachers. yout have always been %wonder-
fully supportive in making this a class
project, especially with those ch arm- -
ing and much-appreciated handmade
\ alentines. Encourage your students to
express their creatiity while learning the
satisfaction of doingfor others.
Every year, the dedicated members
of Camp Fire USA participate in this VA
program, and Salvatidn Army volunteers
distribute valentines,. gifts and refresh-
ments at various VA facilities around the.-
country. Concerts and other programs
are held across the country as part of the
National Salute to Veteran Patients week
If you do not live close enough to a
VAfacility to drop off your valentines
in person, it'- perfectly OK to put them
in the mail. Simply check your phone
book for the.nearestVA facility, or go to
the VA website at We can
ne\ er repaU. these courageous veterans
for the sacrifices they ha\e made on our
behalf, but we can take the time to let
them know they have not been forgot-
ten. Please remember our veterans this
Valentine's Day. We know of nothing else
that costs so little and brings so much
happiness. Marcy and Kathy

This week we have been looking at the truth in North 1-14-12
deals where declarer has had too many losers. 4 32
In particular, we have concentrated on elimi- Y 4 3 2

We have seen that if declarer discards a loser 3 2
from his own hand, it is the end of his worries. 6 5 4 3 2
But if he pitches a loser from the dummy (the West East
shorter trump hand), he must follow up by ruff- 6 5 9 8 7

his hand. Here is another example. 9 7 V Q 10 8 6
First, though, how would you plan the auc- 10 8 7 6 4 J 9 5
tion with that South hand? And how would you 4 J 9 8 7 #. Q 10
plan the play in seven spades after West leads a South
trump? A KQ J 10
No one knows how to bid that South hand. A J 10
Since you cannot find out if partner has the heart Y A K 5
queen, the sensible opening bid is six no-trump. A K Q
But if you are going to gamble, you should chose A A K
seven spades, not seven no-trump.
You have one heart loser and only 12 winners. Dealer South
But you can execute one of those two-step rou- Vulnerable: North-South
T tines. Win the first trick, draw a second round of
trumps, then cash your three diamond winners, South West North East
discarding a heart from the dummy. Next, take ??
your top hearts, ruff your remaining heart five
