Golson Elementary School teacher Debbie Cloud shows her
first-grade class how to make snowflakes.out of paper during
class Tuesday.

Past student

thanks teacher

decades later


A bout 31 years ago, a
filr-t-grade' student
.L ].decided to cheat
on her spelling test. The
"why" behind that deci-
_sion was complicated. Her
parents had been arguing
back then and eventu-
ally divorced. She felt she
hadn't studied enough, so
she put a list of the words
on herlap.
The test began. The
teacher began walking
around the room, and on
one of those rounds, the
little slip of paper fell to
the ground.
Instead of severely
punishing the girl (corpo-
ral punishment was legal
back then), the teacher sat
her down while the otherei
kids went to recess and
had a long "adult" con-
versation about doing the
right thing.

Decades later, Kristy Guy
uses that conversation to
make many of her closing
arguments as a criminal
defense altornei in Mana-
tee Couinrt: She describes
the incident for jurors
and clients, recalling the
advice she %as given bi
Debbie Cloud that day
at Goison Elementary
School. .
"Criminal la\W goes
hand-in-hand wmith
lecturing about right and
wrong,"'! Guy said.
From that moment on,
Ms. Cloud was an inspira-
tion to Guy. The thein-first
grader even styled her hair
after the teacher. ,
Recently, Guy's sister
received her teaching
degree. Along with the
degree, she also brought,
tales of student's antics
and the lack of apprecia-
tion for teachers, inspiring.

of her life but, without a cho-

She was working in a factory,
sewing up seams, when some-

k loan Stadsklev. then-director of
Chipola College Fine and Per-
formingArts, had heard Boggs
sing somewhere and saw raw
talent in the young woman. She
invited Boggs to audition for a
music scholarship. Boggs knew it

was going to be a challenge.
"I had a decent ear, but as far
as reading music and singing
in the classical technique, I had
nothing," Boggs said.
Still, she showed up, and audi-
tioned with a gospel number and
a pop tune. She won her music
scholarship. However, those
educational gifts are structured
in such a way that students must
prove themselves academically

Romney looking to clinch GOP nomination in Florida

TheAssociated Pren s

TAMPA-- Four years ago, Flor-
ida crushed Mitt Romney's presi-
dential ambitions. This time, the
GOP front-runner is working to
ensure the state seals his nomi-
nation- regardless of what hap-
pens in South Carolina's primary
on Saturday. -
The Romney political ma-
chine has been grinding here
for months. The former Mas-
sachusetts governor has been
aggressively courting absentee
voters, blanketing the state's tele-
vision airwaves and wooing local
evangelical leaders.
"Romney has been here and
established longer than any oth-
er presidential candidate that's
running on the Republican tick-
et," said Lt. Gov. Jennifer Carroll,
who hasn't endorsed anyone
in the race. "He has the money
and the organization and that's
always an advantage."
It's especially an advantage in
Florida, which has its primary
on Jan. 31.
Romney's big push here is
partly out of necessity, given that
there's lingering distrust among
the state's conservative voters
over his candidacy.
But while shoe leather and
town hall-style meetings may be
the markofsuccessful campaigns

Iowa and New Hampshire, the

appears to possess.
His Florida team has been,
making phone calls and knock-
ing on doors since last Septem-
ber. He and his allies have been
running television ads here
for almost a month. No other
campaign is on the air.
To date, Romney's campaign
has spent $2.3 million on Florida
television advertising, includ-
ing videos promoting his busi-
ness credentials in English .and
Spanish. And thfe pro-Romney
political action committee, Re-
store Our Future, has spent an
additional $4 million so far ohn

it's hardly clear that that will be
enough to compete with Rom-
ney, who holds a double-digit
lead in recent surveys.
Roughly 460,000 Republican
absentee ballots have already
been mailed to military per-
sonnel, overseas residents and
other Floridians and about
120,000 have been returned in a
state that has 4 million registered

campaign has implemented a
program to contact each of the
absentee voters, first by mail
and then with follow up phone
calls and personal visits from

years ago, when he finished 5
point behind Sen. John McC-ain
in a Florida primary that would
largely push him out of the race.
A noticeable confidence has
emerged inside RoFmney's Tampa
headquarters after back-to-back
wins in Iowa and New Hamp-
shire as well as a commanding
standing in South Carolina.
"If you look at what the other
guys are trying to do in Florida,
I really think it's the difference
between someone trying to play
at the Super Bowl level versus
someone trying to put together
a sandlot football team on the
fly," said Romney's top Florida
strategist, Brett Doster.
Despite that posture, some
conservatives here remain wary
. of a Romney candidacy.
"They don't believe him to be
a true conservative," said Sherri
Ortega, a committee woman for
the Suwannee County Repub-
lican Party who counts herself
a skeptic partly because of the
health care overhaul Romney
signed into law in Massachu-
setts. "It's just hoiw I see it."

.Recognizing weakness among
the state's vocal evangelical
voters, the Romney campaign
months ago established a coali-
tion of social conservatives who
host weekly conference calls.
It's a group that includes former
leaders from the Christian Co-
alition, who help sell Romney's
conservatives credentials to the
voting bloc known as "values

Conservatives here seem to
have the same concerns of their
counterparts in Iowa and New

those contests, largely because
his opponents struggled to unite
anti-Romney conservatives and
prove they could assemble an
organization capable of defeat-
ing President Barack Obama
next fall. Indeed, electability
has emerged as a top concern
among Republican voters like
Ortega and Skura.
"It's *essential. Anybody but

Import, transport of four

huge snakes is now banned

Thr, A:**,: : d F: r.- :

MIAMI Four types of giant snakes
that have been plaguing the Everglades
are now banned from being imported into
the United States or transported across
state lines, federal officials announced
Interior Secretary Ken Salazar publi-
cized the ne'w U.S. Fish and Wildlife Ser-
rice rule during a \isit to the Everglades.
It applies to the Burmese python, yellow
anaconda and the northern and southern
African pythons, the four types of mas-
si\e constrictor snakes that have become
increasingly present in the swampland.
The snakes can grow to be 26 feet long
and more than 200 pounds and threaten
indigenous species.
They've been found to kill and swal-
low animals as large as deer and alliga-
.tors. and Salazar said they threaten all the
work being done to restore the Everglades
to its natural ecosystem.
"It does us no good to put in these bil-
lion dollars of investment in the Ever-
glades only to have these giant invasive
constrictor snakes come in here and undo
the good that we are doing," he said..
The rule will be published in the Fed-
eral Register in the- coming days. It will
take effect 60 days later and applies to
not only live- snakes, but viable eggs, hy-
brids and gametes, which are the male

reproductive cells.
"These giant constrictor snakes do not
belong in the Everglades and they do not
belong in people's, backyards," said Sen.
Bill Nelson, a Florida Democrat who has
been outspoken on the issue and who ap-
peared with Salazar on Tuesday.
Pythons have become a growing prob-
lemin Florida's revered swampland. Many
are believed to have been pets that were
dumped once they grew too big; others'
may have escaped from pet shops during
199? 's Hurricane Andrew and have been
reproducing ever since.
Thousands are believed to be living in
the Everglades.
The netw rule omits five species of
snakes that initially were expected to be
banned, leading some to criticize it as wa-
tered down.
"This rule was swallowed up in the fed-
eral government for 22 months and. put
through a political meat grinder, leaving
us with a severely diminished final ac-
tion," saidWayne Pacelle, president of the
Humane Society of the United States.
Among those spared from the rule were
boa constrictors.
Dan Ashe, director of the U.S. Fish and
Wildlife Service, said additional spe-
cies would continue to be reviewed for
possible action, but that the four types
of snakes.that are now banned pose the
greatest threat.

Give state contracts

an expert once-over
By TheTampa Tribune
Being fast should not be confused with be-
ing efficient, particularly when it comes to
spending the public's money. So lawmakers
should see the state's chief financial officer, Jeff
Atwater, is right that empowering his agency to
review state contracts and stop faulty ones could
save the state millions of dollars.
Another set of eyes on state deals means anoth-
er layer of bureaucracy between the time a plan is
made and when it actually gets done. His pro-
posal may run into ideological opposition from
people who instinctively think smaller is better.
But Atwater has strong evidence on his side.
Florida has no uniform standards for contracts.
State employees spending state money have no
clear guidelines, he says, so oversight is fragment-
ed and difficult. The state's CFO can't be sure that
taxpayers' money is being spent with care. But he
has good reason to suspect that loosely worded
contracts are costing the state lots of money.
His misgiving is based on a review of 364 con-
tracts and grant agreements, each worth at least
$1 million, for the 2010-2011 fiscal year. After
putting the fine print in each contract under his
magnifying glass, Atwater reports that 26 percent
had problems that were potentially costly.
A good, tight contract, Atwater says, will clearly
define the scope of work. It will say exactly what
product or service is to be delivered. It will set
standards for quality and impose deadlines. It
will make clear what financial consequences will
be triggered by unacceptable performance.
These are not radical concepts. They're the kind
of things a smart homeowner would get in writ-
ing before hiring a contractor to make a major
repair. '
'Are we getting What we think we're paving for?"
Atwater asks. In order to have the information
he needs to answer that question, he is asking
for the power to evaluate all contracts of $50,000
or more and to recommend changes. If he finds
holes in a contract, Atwater .would reject it and
send it back to the submitting agency to be re-
written. He would not take the contract-writing.
power away from other agencies.
He estimates the state is writing about $13
billion a year in questionable contracts but is un-
sure exactly how much could be saved. He thinks
it would be a big number.
"There are tremendous savings to be had," he,
tells us.
He also wants state agencies to be able to
explain to losing bidders why someone else won
and what they could do to be more competitive
next time. That could encourage more and better
bids and save taxpayers even more money.
A large part of the state budget is spent on
goods and services. It's more than the state
spends on salaries. There are contracts for jani-
torial service, printing, fuel, communications,
medical care, rent, rqads, consulting, food and'
repairs. The list goes on and on. ,
Initially the requirement might slow the process
a bit, but it shouldn't take state bureaucrats long
to learn how to write contracts right: Atwater
proposes training sessions that lead to certify-
ing contract managers. Someone who refuses
to follow the guidelines would lose certification
and, along with it, the authorization to spend
state money. Once the sloppy contracts are be-
ing caught and rejected, fewer will be written,
and Atwater's review will speed up as the cost of
running the state goes down. Lawmakers should
approve the change to bring more accountability
and oversight to state spending.

Pesticides put farmworkers at risk

Tampa Bay Times

AT hear a lot about farm-
workers' low wages, their
poor housing and the
anti-immigrant movement that
has frightened many. But we rarely
hear about another serious prob-
lem farmworkers face: widespread
exposure to pesticides on the job.
Jeannie Economos, the pesticide
coordinator for the Farm worker
Association of Florida in Apopka,
sees this problem firsthand every
day. She told me about a Me:d-
can woman who walked into the
association's office one recent after-
noon. Her entire face was swollen,
her eyes almost shut. The woman
was certain she had been exposed
to pesticides in the plant nursery
where she worked..
She said a doctor had prescribed
a steroid-based cream for her
face, but she did not want to use a
steroid for what she believed was
pesticide exposure. Economos,
who has handled such cases for
11 years, asked the woman to file
an official complaint about the
incident with the Florida Depart-
ment of Agriculture and Consumer
The woman did not file the com-
plaint because she was afraid of
being labeled a troublemaker and
losing her job even though she was
a legal U.S. resident. Instead, she
bought an over-the-counter cream
that gave some relief. She returned
to work without receiving proper
medical treatment.
Her predicament is all too
familiar to farmworker advocates
in Florida, which has a year-round
,average of 300,000 agricultural
"There are significant and very
disturbing problems related to
farmworkers and pesticide ex-
posure," Economos said. "One
problem is that the current harsh

and ugly anti-immigrant sentiment
around the country and the severe
anti-immigrant laws recently en-
acted in Georgia and Alabama have
made farmworkers more afraid
than ever to come forward when
there are violations of regulations
in the workplace and/or when
they are experiencing symptoms of
pesticide exposure."
Economos said Florida's heavy
use of certain toxic chemicals puts
farmworkers at high risk of expo-
sure. The state's hot and humid
climate and the long nine-month
growing season make work-
ing conditions in the fields anid
greenhouses especially dangerous.
Several studies have linked specific
pesticides to thyroid cancer, atten-
don deficit hyperactii-ty disorder
in children and birth defects.
In 2002 and 2003, for example,
three children of farmworkers were
born with severe birth defects in
Immokalee. The births occurred
about six weeks apart and in the
same area. Evidence showed the
parents had been exposed to
newly sprayed pesticides. Plant
Ciry-based Ag-Mart, the employer
involved, settled out of court with
the couple whose baby was born
with no limbs. The amount was
said to be in the millions. Few such
dramatic cases have been in the
news since, but the dangers have
not gone away.e
Florida's lax enforcement of
federal pesticide regulations greatly
concerns farmworker advocates.
"By last count, there were over
40,000 agricultural operations in
Florida and only 40 inspectors
statewide to monitor and enforce
regulations on all the agricultural
operations in the state," Economos
said. "More inspectors are needed
to do better monitoring, inspection
and enforcement. Even on farms
where there is enforcement when
violations are found, the penalty is
often just a warning."

Another problem is that few
laborers are trained to understand
the effects of the pesticides in their
workplaces. The major reason:
Farmworkers are not covered under
the National Labor Relations Act.
And because Florida is a right-
to-work state, farmworkers have
difficulty forming unions to protect
their interests.
As such, they lack a legal right to
know which pesticides they come
in contact with.
"TheWorker Protection Stan-
dards require that workers receive a
pesticide training every five years,"
Economos said. "We feel that work-
ers should be trained every year to
impress upon them the seriousness
of the conditions in which they
work. We have had workers tell us
that a crew leader will ask them
to sign or initial a paper to show
that they had received the training
without actually giving the training
to them."
Growers also are required to
train workers within the first five
days of beginning the job. This
is a dangerous practice, because
laborers can be on the job for up
to five days before learning how to
protect themselves from pesticide
exposure, Economos said. Workers
should be trained before ever going
into fields or greenhouses.
Advocates argue that because
farmworkers do not hat e politi-
cal and economic clout in state-
. houses and the nation's capital,
they remain invisible in spite of the,
essential work they do work that
no one else will do.
"Unless you are able to be totally
self-sufficient and grow your own
food, you are probably dependent
on farmworkers for the food you
eat," Economos said. "How many
people realize that? Farmworkers
need to be treated like the skilled
workers they are, and they deserve
the same rights and protections the
rest of us take for granted."

The cuts in benefits should only
apply to recruits who enlist after
the cuts are officially approved,
This would imply that there is a
paper trail documenting what the

recruiter told the enlistee were their
benefits and the enlistee acknowl-
edging his or her understanding.
To deprive veterans of what has
been promised for their service
contracts, would present very large
legal, ethical and moral dilemmas.
My contention is that U.S. veterans
are too big an issue to allow to fail.

DA: Homeless killings suspect stalked victims

SANTAANA, Calif. -The
Iraq War veteran would
carefully stalk each of his
victims from among the
thousands of homeless liv-
ing in Southern California.
He would then stab them
repeatedlywith a knife that
could cut through bone,
authorities say.
For his fourth and latest
victim, they say, Itzcoatl
Ocampo selected a home-
less man featured in a Los
Angeles Times story about
a killing spree that terror-
ized those living on the
streets for weeks.
And Ocampo had plans
for more, until he was
chased down by bystand-
ers Friday night after the
fatal stabbing of a 64-
year-old homeless man.
He was caught with blood
on his hands and face,
authorities say.
"He was a monster," Or-
ange County District At-
torney Tony Rackauckas
told reporters at a news
conference. "He was a ter-
rible threat, particularly to
the homeless people in our
Ocampo was charged
Tuesdaywith four counts of
murder and special allega-
tions of multiple murders
and lying in wait and use
of a deadly weapon. Three
victims were stabbed more
than 40 times each with a
single-edged blade at least
7-inches long.
Authorities declined
to say whether they had
identified a motive. Rack-
auckas said he had no in-
dication that Ocampo was

mentally ill.
Ocampo's family said the
23-year-old was a troubled
man after' he returned
from Iraq in 2008. Ocampo
was being held in isola-
tion at an Orange County
jail while officers keep an
eye on him 24 hours a day,
officials said.
If convicted, Ocampo
faces a minimum sentence
of life in prison without
parole. Authorities have
yet to decide whether to
seek the death penalty.
Ocampo is due to appear
in court on Wednesday,
but his attorney said" his
arraignment would likely
be postponed since the at-
torney was not allowed in-.
side the jail to speak with
his client over the weekend
and has met with him only
Defense attorneyRandall
Longwith declined to com-
ment on the allegations.
He said Ocampo is being
held in a mental ward.
"I walked in, he was
curled up in a blanket,"
Longwith said. "He looked
like a wet puppy dog."
The killing spree began
in December, prompting
police and advocates to
fan out across the county
known as the home to Dis-
neyland and multimillion-
dollar beachfront homes to
urge the homeless to sleep.
in groups or in one of two
wintertime shelters.
.Ocampo's arrest Fri-
day was the latest violent
crime involving a veteran.'
This month, an Iraq War
veteran fatally shot a rang-
er at Mount Rainier Na-
tional Park and died later

Megan Munoz, 13, adds a message to a spontaneous memorial
to John Berry on the spot where the homeless veteran was
murdered behind a Carl's Jr. restaurant in Anaheim, Calif., on

as he fled police across the
mountain's snow-covered
Veterans Affairs officials
say such high-profile vio-
lence can paint an inac-
curate picture of return-
ing veterans. The cases,
however, raise the issue of
veterans having a difficult
time adjusting back into
civilian life.
To help, the VA created a
program to assist veterans
in adjusting to their new
lives and avoid repeated
brushes with the law,
"We've seen over and over
again that once they ac-
cess those services, we can
help them," VA spokesman
Josh Taylor said.

A neighbor who is aViet-
nam veteran and Ocam-
po's father both tried to
push him to get treatment
at a VA hospital, but he
refused. His father, Refu-
gio Ocampo, said, his son
came back from his de-
ployment a changed man.
He said his son expressed
disillusionment and be-
6ame ever darker as he
struggled to find his way.'
After Ocampo was dis-
charged in 2010, and re-
turned home, his par-
ents separated. The same
month, one of his friends,
a corporal, was killed dur-
ing combat in Afghanistan.
.His brother said Ocampo
visited, his friend's grave

nice a week.
Like the men Ocampo is
accused of preying on, his
father is homeless. His fa-
ther lost his job and ended
up living under a bridge
before finding shelter in
the cab of a broken-down
big-rig he is helping repair.
Days before his arrest,
Ocampo visited his father,
warning him of the dan-
ger of being homeless. He
showed him a picture of
one of the slain men, his
father said.
"He was very worried
about me," his father said.
"I told him, .'Don't worry.
I'm a survivor. Nothing will
happen to me.'" '
Itzcoatl Ocampo fol-
lowed a friend into the
Marine Corps right out of
high school in 2006. He
now lives with his mother,
uncle, younger brother and
sister in a rented house on
a horse ranch surrounded
by the sprawling suburbs
ofYorba Linda.
His family described a
physical condition he suf-
fered in which his hands
shook and he suffered
headaches. Medical treat-
ments helped until he
started drinking heavily,
they said.
As fear spread through
the homeless commu-
nity, police last week set
up road blockades to seek
help from members of the
public in tracking down a
suspect. Ocampo, who ap-
peared to relish the media
spotlight, passed through
the checkpoints twice but
did not draw attention to
himself, Rackauckas said.
Ocampo was arrested

A day before he died,
Berry had filed a report
with police saying he be-
lieved someone was trying
to follow him. It was one of

In addition to Berry,
James Patrick McGillivray,

A Russian tanker that went
on an ocean odyssey of
5,000 miles to deliver fuel
to the iced-in city of Nome

would put his team's ability
to hang on to the basket-

ball to the test with their
defense and pace.
"Pensacola tries to rush

quick decisions that you're
not ready for, and it's tough
to simulate that in practice
day in and day out," he
said. "But we 'have to value

where things can go either

play) there's a little sepa-

separation the second time

happening this year. I think
this is going to be a tighter
deal. We could very easily
be 2-0 or 0-2."
But Lane said that despite
his team's flaws, he does
believe: the Lady Indians
have what it takes to make'
a run at the title.
"I like the mix we've got.

"I feel pretty good about
the guys we brought in
with the freshmen and the
transfers. We've just got
to learn how to play the
game," Johnson said. "The
talent level is fine, but I
don't know how tough or
determined we are now.
That will decide what kind
of club we have."
. Chemistry and consis-
tency were major issues
for the Indians for a good
part of last season, but the
Indians seemed to turn
the comer around mid-
season and finished the
season strong.
Johnson said the turn-
around was due primarily
to a change in the team's
attitude and approach.
"Those guys by the
end of the year had re-
ally boughtin and were'
all on the same page and
had the same plan," the
coach said. "They pulled
it together and were able
to make a run. We had to
run a few guys off, but the
ones who stayed really
bought in and believed.
"It kind of restored my
faith that when you're to-
gether and determined,
you will have a great
chance to be successful.
We got themost out of
each and every one of (the
players) that were here."
'It remains to be seen
if this year's group will
possess the same kind of
intangibles, which John-,
son said is impossible to
discover until the season
plays out.
"You just never know.
With this group so far,
they'-ve been good kids
and a good group to be
around," he said. "The
thing I worry aboutis how
competitive we are right
now. As coaches, we've got
to get them to fight a little
harder. \e'lU see; so far, so
good. I do think the lead-
ership and determination
need to get better, but I
like btu group."
Johnson said that prac-

unusual this early in the

need to be, but we do have
possibly more depth this
year," the coach said. "We
just have to try to figure
out what role is best for
each kid. That's the idea
early in the year, to try to
let everybody get three
innings and see if we can
develop some depth."

who took six of his nine
wins against Panhandle
Conference competition.
Johnson said that his
sophomore hurler is a bit
stronger this season and
still brings an element of
mental toughness to the
"He's been a little bit in-
consistent, and I would
like his command to
get better, but there's no
questioning his competi-
tiveness," the coach said.
"He's going to compete
every time he gets on the
mound. He's the'kind of
guy you want out there in
a big game. He ratchets it
up a level in those situa-
tions. He loves pitching
in big games. It's good to
have him back, and we're
going to push him to be
better tian he was last
The Indians lost some
of their best power hit-
ters from last year's t6am
in Derrick Pitts and Geno
Escalante, as well as some
of their best overall hitters

rison. But' Johnson said
that he believed this team
could become just as good
of a hitting team as last
year's group, and perhaps
even deeper and more
"I hope we can get a
bunch of them going, so
we can move guys around
based on who's hot and
who's not," the coach said.
"We've still got to get bet-

things, but I think we've

I think everyone will be
competitive. Hopefully,
we can make some strides
throughout the year and
end up back on top of it."

In this Dec. 9, 2011, photo, Miami Marlins president David Samson (left), pitcher Mark Buehrle and owner Jeffrey Loria pose
for photos after the team introduced Buehrle during a baseball news conference in Miami. In a span of five days, Loria signed
All-Stars Jose Reyes, Mark Buehrle and Heath Bell to contracts worth a combined $191 million. All three deals are backloaded,
with a steep escalation in the salaries over time. Even the signing bonuses for Buehrle and Bell are deferred until the end of the

Risky free-agent deals could pay off for Marlins

The Associated Press

MIAMI The biggest
bill for the Miami Marlins'
recent spending spree
won't come due until 2015,
thanks to a payment plan
that those in baseball de-
scribe as unusual, creative
and risky.
If the approach works,
it could help transform
the franchise into a fi-
nancial success story and
perennial contender.
And if the plan fails, the
Marlins could wind up
in the same rut as before
theirmove into a new ball-
park, saddled with mod-
est crowds and humble
A lot depends on wheth-
er they win to keep fans
"There's a big difference
between winnruing and
nor," longtime baseball

executive Tal Smith said. "I
presume they think they're
prepared to be a playoff
club. The stakes are high.
"If you make it, great.
If not, you've got a
Anticipating bigger
crowds and higher revenue
-when their ne\v ballpark
opens in April, the histori-
cally thrifty Marlins went
shopping for free agents
this winter and spent like
never before. In a span of
five days, owner Jeffrey
Loria signed All-Stars. Jose
Reyes, Mark Buehrle and
Heath Bell to contracts
worth a combined $191
million. All three deals are
backloaded, with a steep
escalation in the salaries
o\er time. Even the sigthing
bonuses for Buehrule and
Bell aie deferred until the
end of the contracts.
The Mlarlins \\ill pay

Reyes, Buehrle and Bell a
combined $22 million this
year. In 2015, the team's
obligation to the trio could
be $57 million.
"This is unusual," said
Roger I. Abrams, a major-
league salary arbitrator
and Richardson profes-
sor of law at Northeast-
erm University. "The es-
calation does look pretty
Team, president David
Samson said the structure
of the contracts reflects
the Marlins' projections
that revenue will leep ris-
ing over dw next couple
of years. To Abrams, that
makes sense.
"This could make them
a contender." Abrams said.
"If they are a contender -
having hived in Boston for
the past 13 Years, I know
what it means to be a con-
tender. It means I need to

find more money to pay
for my tickets."
But while ticket prices
can increase, there will be
little room for growth in
attendance, because near-
sellout crowds are expect-
ed nightly this year in the
36,000-seAt ballpark. And
the team is locked into its
TV deal until 2020, ensur-
ing little change in revenue
FredWray, agent for Mar-
lins outfielder Logan Mor-
rison, praised Loria and
Samson for being creative
in trying to make baseball
a hit in Miami.
"With big risk lots -of
times comes big reward,"
Wray said. "A lot of teams
backload contracts. This
year it gave the Marlins
some payroll flexibiliy to
do more things and con-
tinue to add in the here

Insects, not ankle,

bug Serena in

Aussie comeback

The Associated Press

MELBOURNE, Australia
- If anything, it was the
insects buzzing around
Rod Layer Arena that
bugged Serena Williams
the most. The injured left
ankle held up fine in her
opening match Tuesday at
the Australian Open, and
even the near-midnight
start time was OK But the
"I hate bugs more than
you can imagine," Wil-
liams said after reaching
the second round by beat-
ing Tamira Paszek 6-3, 6-2.
"Like, they kept jumping
The match started at
11:32 p.m., and Williams
hit a service winner 79
minutes later to finish
it off. Between points,
though, she picked up and
moved or shooed away
bugs that landed on court,
and two that landed on
her back. A big one gave
her a fright, making her
hop as she tried to stifle a

"I'm going to request not
to play at night anymore
because I hate bugs, ex-
cept for the final. I heard
it's at night," Williams
said. "I'll try to get used to
Two years after she won
her last Australian Open
title, Williams extended
her winning streak to 15
-matches at Melbourne
Park in the season's first
major tournament. She
wontitlesin2009 and2010
but missed the chance to
defend her title last year
amid a prolonged injury
The match started late
start becauseWilliams and
Paszek had to wait until
the conclusion of a 4-hour
men's night match won by
Leyton Hewitt. And it was
her first match since badly
spraining her ankle two
weeks ago at the Brisbanre
International, an injury
that jeopardized her par-
ticipation in Melbourne.
Monday was the first time
she was able to practice
pain free,

National Foo-tball League

Tebow has earned starting status next season

The Associated Press

- The debate over Tim
Tebow's worthiness as an
NFL quarterback will un-
deniably continue in the
What's not in doubt is his
status as the Denver Bron-
cos' starter.
The team sought to curb
the circus that's sure to sur-
round Tebow over the next
several months by declar-
ing him the incumbent at
a season-ending news con-
ference Monday.
"Well, I thinkTim's earned
the right to be the start-
ing quarterback going into
training camp next year,"
Broncos boss John Elway
declared at the beginning
of a 40-minute news con-
ference in which 24 of the
47 questions were about
"I .think he made some
good strides this year," El-
way said. "He obviously
played very well against
Pittsburgh and played
very well in a lot of football
And exceedingly poorly
in plenty of others.
That's why Elway, a Hall
of Famer who rejoined the
team a year ago as chief
of football operations, .has
pledged to personally work
with Tebow this offseason
to polish his passing game
and help him become a
better quarterback., -
He has a willing pupil in
Tebow, who said his off-
season goal was "to work
pretty hard and try to get a
lot better."
Elway said'he wants to
"help Tim in every way I
can, to be able to improve
through what I learned."
And that was this: Mlobil-
ity is great,.but to compete
for a championship, you
have to become a pocket
passer. That's what Elway
learned late in his career,
which, he capped with
back-to-back Super Bowl
titles after losing the big
game three times.
"Hopefully, I can teach
him what I learned over myi
16-year career." Elway said,
"to be able to tell him what
I learned in Year 10, hope-
fully get that to him in year
3 or4."
The Broncos, like every-
one else, are looking for
that franchise quarterback
"and we're so hopeful that
Tim's that guy. Obviously,
we have some work to do
and he knows that, too."
Tebow took over a 1-4
team in October and guid-
ed the Broncos to their first
playoff berth since 2005.
But the clunky dual-threat
quarterback completed
just 46.5 percent of his
passes in the regular sea-
son and 40.4 percent in the
playoffs .while compiling
an 8-5 overall record that
included five second-half

His 80-yard TD toss on
the first play of overtime
beat Pittsburgh in the wild-
card round and capped his
best performance as a pro.
Then, he had the worst
completion percentage
- 34 in a playoff game
since 1998 in a 35-point
loss at New England on
Saturday night in a game
that showed how far both
he and the Broncos have
yet to go.
Sticking with Tebow as
the starter doesn't mean the
Broncos won't be adding a
quarterback or two in the
offseason either through
the draft or free agency.
"Well, right now as we
look at it, we've got two
quarterbacks under con-
tract," Elway said, noting
that practice squad QB
Adam Weber signed a fu-
tures contract. "So, we've
obviously got to be in the
market to find some more
Coach John Fox didn't
rule out the return of Brady
Quinn, who hasn't taken a
single snap in his two sea-
sons in Denver.
Selling a veteran quarter-
back on Denver might be
"Now, I think that any-
body that comes in, a free
agent, no matter what po-.
sition, is going to believe
they're going to come in
and have a chance to com-
pete," Elway said. "That's
the thing. Anybody that
comes in here, when we
start training camp, is going
to be competing for jobs.
Obviously, with Tim's repu-
tation, if the guyis afraid to
come in here and compete
for that job, then maybe it's
not the right guy."
With Tebo'w entering his
first camp as the unques-
tioned starter, it's likely
the Broncos will seek out
a veteran backup %ia free
agency, but Elway said he
wasn't sure whether the
team .would look at QBs
who are stylistically similar
to Tebow.
Tebow's growth was
stunted by the NFL lockout
and Kyle Orton's status as
the starter through training
camp and the first month
of the season.
Despite winning seven
of his first eight starts. the
Broncos were unbalanced
under Tebow. They had the
league's best ground game
but were ranked 31st in the
32-team league in passing.
"So, those are the strides
that we're going to have to
make for us to be the of-
fensive football team' that
we want to be," ElPay said.
'And so that's why we're
looking forward to this off-
season and w\e know what
kind of mentality Timmy
'has, he's a. great worker
and I knowy he'll work his
tail off this offseason. I
think he will make those

Wade turns 30, eager to see what future holds

The Associated Press
MIAMI Dwyane Wade
says it with no apologies.
There was a time when he
thought 30 sounded old.
Now that 30 is here, it
doesn't sound so bad.
Wade's 20s are over, a de-
cade in which he was part
of more than 445 wins at
the college, pro and inter-
national levels, fathered
two sons, was the MVP of
the Miami Heat's run to the
2006 NBA championship,
helped the U.S. capture
an Olympic gold medal at
the Beijing Games in 2008,
claimed a scoring title, had
estimated earnings topping
$100 million and made sev-
en All-Star appearances.
Yes, his 20s were roaring.
Bring on the 30s, he says.
"I never really sit and
think about when I came'
in at 21 to now, turning 30,
how time has gone," Wade
said this week in an inter-
view with The" Associated
Press. "I never really sit and
think about it because I'm
always moving. But when
you look at your career
and you say, 'I've got, more
years in than I want to have
left,' you've got to be real-
istic with yourself. It's real.
It becomes real. So I took a
little look back."
And what did he decide
S after taking that look back?
"You know, you didn't do
bad, kid," said Wade, who
routinely says he'd like to
play in the NBA until his
mid-to-late 30s. "I'll see
what I can do next."
Big-picture. Wade is still
at the top of his game,
though at this particular
moment in time that's not
exactly the case. A sprained
right ankle is the most sig-
nificant of three lower-leg
maladies he's been deal-
ing with of late, and he's
not looking likely to play

Dwyane Wad~e
Miami Heat guard

opens a five-game homes-
tand by playing host to the
San Antonio Spurs.
It surprised no one that
he was picked Monday for
USA Basketball's pool of
20 finalists for the 12-man
roster heading to the Lon-
don Olympics this sum-
mer, and it will surprise no
one again if he's ultimately
selected for that team.-
Among active players,
his career average of 25.3
points per game for the.
Heat ranks third in the
league, behind only Miami
teammate LeBron James
(27.7) and the Los Angeles
Lakers' Kobe Bryant (25.4).
And he has blocked nearly
twice as many shots'as any
other .guard in the league
since entering the NBA in
"Dwyane is a very smart
guy," Heat coach Erik
Spoelstra said ,Monday.
"He was very mature when
he came in at 21. He didn't
carry himself like a normal
rookie. But certainly, he's
changed. His experience
on and off the court, he's
become a leader, he's be-
come a brand, he's become
a positive example for so
many people."
He was also quickly la-
beled a "can't-rmiss" around
the league, many coaches
have said.
They were right.
"Yeah, he was a ridiculous
talent," Spurs coach Gregg
Popodich said, when asked
if he saw anything early in
\Vade's career that tipped
him off to what the former
Marquette guard would do
in tde NBAk "It was pretty
obvious to everybody that

he was a hell of a player.
And he was a hard worker.
He had great skills, great
athleticism, understood
how to play. Everybody
knew he was going to be a
great one."
There will be a time
when the downside of ag-
ing means he's not as great,
and Wade acknowledges
That day still may be a
long way away, although in
the Heatlocker room, turn-
ing 30 is not exactlywarmly
"In NBA years, that's like
9.0," said Heat forward
Chris Bosh, who turns 28 in
March, with tongue firmly
in cheek.
Keeping with the nona-
genarian theme. Wade's
family got him a birthday

present he won't soon for-
get this weekend.
Wade's family and close
friends gathered at a ho-
tel Saturday for a private
brunch, where the Heat
guard got a bunch of trib-
utes. First, out came his
sons and a third relative
who is being raised by
Wade, who was surprised
because it was his ex-wife's
weekend to have the chil-
dren before a schedule
switch was agreed upon.
Then came the real gift:
Wade's 91-year-old grand-
mother, .who lives in Chi-
cago, sneaked up to his
side and left him taken
completely aback. Despite
her grandson's urging, she
had always refused to fly
- until now. The man who
can buy himself almost
anything got the present
he wanted most.
"It was very emotional,"
Wade said. "She's 91. Every
day \i1th her is a blessing
that wee have. It's a bonus.
'To see her come down, to
hear her laugh, it brought
back so many memories."

Against four spades, West leads a diamond.
East wins with the ace and shifts to his trump.
West takes the trick and returns a spade, East
discarding a diamond. How should the play
proceed from there?
The first five calls of the auction were impec-
cable. Thenwe get toWest's two-diamond raise. W
That was much too cautious.-If West thought ,
game was makable his way, he should have V
cue-bid two spades to show a maximum pass +
with diamond support. But if he judged game *
to be unlikely, he should have applied the Law
of Total Tricks and jumped to four diamonds.
With a combined 10-card fit, bid to the 10-trick
level. North had a comfortable two-and-a-half--
spade rebid, but chose two spades because of
his low point-count. Then South judged well to
make a game-try.
Now West showed the error of his earlier
way. If he was willing to bid four diamonds,
he should have done it immediately, not given
his opponents a fielder's choice of doubling or
bidding four spades. In four spades, declarer
has to guess clubs. If the diamond ace is a true
card, West is marked with the diamond king 3
and has produced the spade ace; he cannot
also have the club ace. So South should play a-
club to dummy's 10.
