stand-off with police

From staff reports
A Marianna man was arrested
on multiple charges after a do-
mestic incident that led to a brief
stand-off with police in the midst
of a storm Monday night.
Robert Howze Milton Jr., 61, is
charged with two counts of ag-
gravated assault with-a firearm
on a law enforcement officer, ag-
gravated domestic assault with a

firearm and false imprisonment.
Deputies were called to the

Milton Jr.

Milton household
at 3023 R&G Para-
dise Loop just af-
ter 8 p.m. A friend
of Milton's wife
had called for as-
sistance. She said
she was on the
phone with Mrs.

Milton when she heard Mrs.

Si ad with her husband
ti -_ n the gun he was
h rs. Milton reportedly
t( md that her husband
h d the gun at her head
a her into a bedroom.
Tnhe-wcnr had retreated to the
bedroom and locked herself in-
side, authorities learned as they
responded to the call.
When deputies arrived, Milton
opened the door with a pistol

still in his hand, according to
Jackson County Sheriff Lou Rob-
erts,-who said Milton "pointed
the gun in their direction in a
reckless manner."
The officers retreated to safe-
ty and found the victim. They
helped her escape through a
bedroom window and then es-
tablished a verbal exchange with
Milton. After about half-an-hour
of conversation, yelled over the

noise of the rainstorm, Milton
was persuaded to surrender.
He came out of the house and
was taken into .custody on the
front porch. The pistol and nine
other loaded guns were seized,
authorities reported.
- Milton was taken to the Jackson
County jail, where he remained
early Tuesday morning after his
first court appearance. His bond
was set at $55,000.

Chamber banquet on Friday

Locals mingle before the start of the 2010 Jackson County Chamber of Commerce Banquet.

Continlues event's histoi3, shows its growth 84th annual chamber

S,] .: a, ,: ,,,' '1,: i :,l" K] n : r i ,

As the 84th annual Jackson County
Chamber of Commerce banquet draws
near, some people in the chamber's
long history reminisced about its ban-
quets, the changes it has faced in the
past and will face in the future.
Volunteer Betty Joyce Hand nid [the
banquets have always been something'
the community has enjoyed. She re-"
members when radio broadcaster Paul,
Harvey and then-Florida Gov. Lawton
Chiles spoke at past banquets.
"The chamber has a long history of

tllay fabulo-us banquets," Hand said.
Something relatively new at the ba rn-
quets has been an increase in recogni-
tion awards for both citizens and board
members, Hand said. .
The chamber's banquets alone have
seen an increase in interest through-
out the years, said Art Kimbrough,
president and CEO of the chamber.
"The banquet has grown from a
hometown-style gathering each year
to a larger event with more sponsors,
more support from the community,"
Kimbrough said.
That community involvement is
something the chamber has seen

Troop 3 Boy Scouts prepare

for hiking, camping weekend

Special to the Floridan

Troop 3 Boy, Scouts continue to
work diligently to prepare for their
upcoming, camping/hiking week-
end on Jan. 28 and 29, along the
Econfina Creek, which is part of the
FloridaTrail. During the recent troop
meeting on Jan. 17, scouts focused
on navigational skills, learning map
symbols and studying contour lines
on a map to determine Athe best
paths to hike. Backpacks, sleeping
bags and tents were also inspected
and prepared.'
Navigation, or the art of finding
yourwayis important for every scout
to learn. Troop 3 scouts learned that
much of navigating involves pay-
ing attention to their surroundings

and making good decisions. Scout-
master Bill Kleinhans provided an
instructional time for the scouts on
important knowledge and tools they
need when participating in outdoor
adventures. Topographic maps were
studied and contour lines were dis-
cussed. Scouts learned that contour
lines represent the terrain of the
land. Where the lines are close to-
gether, a hillside is steep, and where
they are far apart, the slope of the
ground is less steep.
Kleinhans taught the scouts how
to orient a map. Today, most maps
are drawn with north at the top,
though the act of turning a map to
match the landscape is called "iri-
enting." He also showed the scouts
various symbols that will be on a

map and how to use that knowledge
in navigating a course.
Scouts then began a time of sup-
ply preparation for their outdoor
adventure. Backpacks, sleeping
bags, tents and all needed materials
were checked and made eady to go.
Chili tickets were also distributed'
to the scouts to begin selling for the
upcoming chili dinner fundraiser on
Feb. 6, at the First United Methodist
The Marianna Optimist Club is the
chalrerir.g orLga!niza'tion for Troop 3
Boy Scoutsi. For more information

video perverts

The Tampa Tribune
Florida's laws were not designed to address
video voyeurism. So it's good news smart
reforms sponsored by state Rep. DanaYoung
of Tampa and Sen. Ronda Storms of Brandon are
progressing through the Legislature. *
Making secret videos is now only a misdemean-
or, too minor an infraction to allow law enforce-
ment officials to get a warrant to obtain evidence
from computers, phones or the Internet service
Hillsborough County sheriff's deputies ran into
the limitation last year when two young Bulgar-
ian women who had moved to Tampa discovered
cameras concealed in their bedrooms, bathroom
and living room. The deputies could not prove
they were connected to recording or transmitting
devices and no charges were filed. Things might
have been different had they been able to obtain-
a warrant.
The legislation would change the offense to a
third-degree felony, with a maximum punish-
ment of five years and a $5,000 fine. The maxi-
mum now is one year and a $1,000 fine.
Even more important, if the bill passes, law
enforcement will have the authority to ol)tain
warrants and effectively investigate someone
who makes videos of people in places they
reasonably expect to be private. .
As Storms puts it, 'Anyone can go online or to
the nearest electronics store to purchase equip-
ment that would have been a available only to.
James Bond several years ago. It is. easy to use this
technology in the wrong way and spy on others
against their will."
Secretly filming someone in private can be
devastating to the victim, as the case of ESPN
reporter Erin Andrews underscores
As obung points out, Andrews is victimized
every time someone views the video clip of her in'
a hotel room that a man secretly taped and then
posted on the Internet, where it has beeincopied
countless times. The offender was sentenced to
two and a half years in an Illinois prison. An- .
drews strongly supports the proposal to toughen
Florida's law. .
This is necessary legislation that would help
protect citizens against a heinous personal
violation. It should be adopted.

Romney vs. public radio and TV

Sweet Land of Liberty

leading Republican presiden-
tial candidate Mitt Romney
insistently pledges that he
will end public funding for NPR
and for PBS (the latter partially
funds NPR). Other congressional
Republicans agree with him.
For decades as a reporter, I have
continually found iital information
on public radio and television that
at first was available nowhere else.
A current example that may be of
importance to many of you, par-:
ticularly parents of schoolchildren:
Ln NPR story I "No. the School
.Nurse is Not in,' lan. 3 reveal that,
"More than half of American public
schools don't hai e a full ime
ntruse, and the situation is getting
worse as school s'Istems further cur
budgets. This \year, 51 werelaid off
in Philadelphia's public schools,
20 in a Houston suburb. 15 in San
Diego and dozens more in other
hsclhool systems nationwidee"
in my reporting on education, I
have been in Varitou cities w here
I see kids in crowded classrooms
with evident hearing, vision and
other problems. Sonietimes, unno-,
ticedby\ burdened teachers, these
students, having no nurse to go to,
remain silent.
Also, on such regularprograms
as NPR's "All Things Considered"
and PBS' "Frontline," I get leads for.
further reseaitch on information
suddenly new to me on such
subjects I've reported on as our ,
disappearing igiu to priiaLc and
other Bush-Cheney-Obama raids
on the Constitution. '
What Mitt Rominey and other
Republicans eager to defund NPR
and PBS don't apparently realize
is emphasized by the very credible o
Tom Rosenstiel. director of the Pe\\
Research Center's Project for Excel-
lence in Journalism, who told NPR:
"You probably have stations,

particularly (in) more rural and
smaller markets, that would cease
to exist ... There will be a lot of
collateral damage at the local
level" ("Public Broadcasting Funds
Caught in,Budget Battle," 2/17/11).
In an attempt to demonstrate his
concern for the kids who like
my 5-year-old grandchild would
terribly miss public television's
children's programs, the slick Mitt
Romney assures ever one:
"We're not going to kill Big Bird
(on "Sesame Street"). But Big Bird
is going to have advertisemrnt.s. All
right?" (Holl- :voodreporter.cohm,
Dec.,28) .
It's not likely to b,e all right once
"Sesame Street" is festooned with ,
commercials. Rep. Earl Blume-
nauer, D-Ore.. who has \worked
on resolutions to stop proposed
spending cuts, reminds us that. "In
the commercial market ... the stuff
for kids is targeted to selu things to
kids, not to educate them" i,
If Mitt Romney and his defunding
colleagues have their way and com-
mercialize "Sesame Street." Big Bird
and the other puppets are going to
be cajoling their young audience to
, eep bugging their parents to buyt
What Big Bird is selling.
Fred Friendly. who was Edward R.
NMu-rrow's producer before becom-
ing president of CBS News, used
to tell me that the original purpose
of television in these United States '
%xas to be a source of education.
But, he added, it largely lost its .
purpose. Fred did.his best to stay
within its original purpose with
the deeply educational reports and
documentaries he producedwith
Sturrow. ..
These days, however, there is
nothing on commercial television '
that equals the educational impact
of the nweestigative NMurrow% -Friend-
ly combination.
.Right now, the only informative
series of any value that continually

and probingly educates its audi-
ence is "Frontline" on PBS.- whose
public funding Romney and his
associates want to cut off.
Last year, a story in U.S. News and
World Report ("Liberals Mobilize to
Save PBS, NPR Funding," usnews,
corn, 2/11/11) reported on a warn-
ing from television stationWOUB
at Ohio University that indicated
what we would be missing if the de-
funders then, as now, succeeded in
their mission to kill the educational
alternatives to commercial radio
and television:
"The (public) money that would
be lost helps to better educate
viewers and listeners ... 'It-helps us
to deliver educational and cornm-
mercial-free programming that
expands children's minds, docu-
mentaries that open up new worlds
to you, trusted news programs that
keep you informed, and exposes
you to the worlds of music, theater,
dance and art as an adult.'"
NMeanmhile, kids experience the
joy of learning from the ever-enliv-
ening Big Bird.
This same U.S. report
quotes the liberal website Politicu-
sUSA: "In an era of media c.onsoli-
dation, fewer national and foreign
bureaus and mass newsroom lay-
offs, NPR is one of the only media
.outlets actually bringing listeners
more reporting factual reporting,
not warped pontificating) from
around the country and around the
If Mitt Romney makes these cuts,
he will create a dark hole in our
lives that will defy James Madison's
warning which becomes more
contemporary every day; "A people
who mean to be their own Gov-
ernors must arm themselves with
the power which knowledge gives
... a popular Government without
popular information, or the means
of acquiring it, is but a Prologue
to a Farce or a Tragedy, or perhaps

Pery made an important contribution


Back whenhe was just another
Republican running for his
party's presidential nomina-
tion, Texas Governor Rick Perry
condemned the Obama adminis-
tration's "war on religion." The man
had a point: The left is markedly
hostile toward religion that does
not conform to liberal views.
And liberalism has become, in
some respects, sexual libertinism.
For liberals, it's no longer just say-
ing 'anything goes,' but that we
have a fundamental right to an
'anything goes' lifestyle and the
taxpayer-funded tools needed to
sustain it. "
Perry had one of his best debates
during a tumultuous night in New
Hampshire, during which modera-
tors insisted on repeatedly asking
questions about contraception and
homosexuality, seemingly hoping
to force a candidate to crack and
admit harboring secret plans to
issue a federal directive that would
confiscate birth control. A con-
versation about the power of the
government to override religious
organizations on conscience issues
- such as gay couples adopting
children and publicly funded abor-
tion ensued, taking in numer-
ous candidates from a variety of
religious backgrounds..
Perry didn't mince words about
what he felt was a bias toward
Christian values on the part of the
Obama administration. "When we
see an administration that will not

defend the Defense of Marriage Act
...When we see this administration
not giving money to Catholic Chari-
ties ... because they don't agree with
the Catholic Church on abortion,
that is a war against religion. And
it's going to stop under a Perry
He was talking about senior of-
ficials in the Department of Health
and Human Services killing a deal
to help international victims of
sex trafficking, merely because
the church's views on contracep-
tion and abortion clash with the
A certain man in Rome would
likelybe appreciative of Perry, even
though the Texan is a Protestant.
"It is imperative that the entire
Catholic community in the United
States come to realize the grave
threats to the Church's public moral
witness presented by a radical
secularism which finds increas-
ing expression in the political and
cultural spheres," Pope Benedict
XVI said during a routine visit of
American bishops to the Vatican.
The pontiff went on to warn of "cer-
tain attempts being made to limit
that most cherished of American
freedoms, the freedom of religion."
"At the heart of every culture," he
said, "is a consensus about the na-
ture of reality and the moral good,
and thus about the conditions for
human flourishing."
Paying tribute to our nation's ori-
gins, he praised America's ground-
ing "in a worldview shaped not
only by faith but a commitment to

certain ethical principles deriving
from nature and nature's God."
Now, according to the pope,
that consensus has been "eroded
significantly in the face of powerful
new cultural currents" that are not
only directly opposed to core moral
teachings of the Judeo-Christian
tradition, but increasingly hostile to
Christianity as such."
The Pope wasn't endorsing the
Republican field, needless to say,
but around the world, people
are noticing our culture coming
undone. It's rare that a prime-time
broadcast takes note, as well. But
that Saturday night on ABC, there
the candidates were, discussing just
such an unraveling.
Perry's late entrance into the
presidential primary field was
marked with controversy over his
involvement in a prayer rally in
Texas. The rally was an affront to
those who insist that religion and
politics can never mix. Perry knows
that belief in a creator is part of the
American narrative as we've known
it. And while you're free to not pray,
as I am to do so, we'd better be
careful about manipulating faith
for the sake of politics and ostraciz-
ing faith because of our politics,
trampling on conscience rights in
service to a phony tolerance.
When history remembers Rick
Perry's time on the campaign trail,
it ought to remember this. He saw
some of these things clearly and
helped advance a conversation,
keeping religious -freedom out in
the open and protected.

Marine denies firing at Iraqi women and children

The Associatea Press

CAMP PENDLETO:'., Calif. -
A Marine facing sentencing over
one of the worst attacks on civil-
ians by U.S. troops during the
Iraq War told a judge Tuesday in
a surprise development that he
never fired his weapon at any
women or children.
. The statement by Staff Sgt.
,Frank Wuterich came a day af-
ter he pleaded guilty to a minor
charge of negligent dereliction
of duty as part of a deal that will
mean little or no jail time.
"The truth is: I never fired any
weapon at any women or chil-
dren that day," Wuterich said in a
statement during his sentencing
Wuterich also said in his state-
ment that his guilty plea should

not suggest that he believes his
men behaved badly or that they
acted in any way that was dis-
honorable to their country.
Wuterich, 31, led the squad
that killed 24 unarmed Iraqis in
assaults in the town of Haditha
in 2005. As part of a deal that
stopped his manslaughter trial
Monday, Wuterich faces no more
than three months in confine-
ment for the lesser charge.
"In no way should my accep-
tance of responsibility ever be
considered an indictment of the
Marines or the commanders,"
Wuterich said in his first state-
ment to the court since his case
went to trial earlier this month.
He also spoke to the family
members of the Iraqi victims.
"I wish to assure you that
on that day, it was never my

intention to harm you or your
families," he said. "I know that
you are the real victims of Nov.
19, 2005."
In Iraq, residents of the Eu-
phrates river town expressed

"I was expecting that the Amer-
ican judiciary would sentence
this person to life in prison and
that he would appear and con-
fess in front of the whole world
that he committed this crime, so
that America could show itself as
democratic and fair," he said.
Prosecutors had implicated
Wuterich in 19 of the 24 deaths.
A former squad mate testified
during the trial that he joined

Wuterich in firing in a dark back
bedroom of one of the homes
where he saw small silhouettes.
Later, when former Cpl. Ste-
phen Taum returned, he said he
found woman and children had
been killed.
Wuterich began his statement
in court by telling the fam-
ily members of victims, "Words
cannot express my sorrow for
the loss ofyour loved one. I know
there is nothing I can say to ease
your pain. I wish to assure you
that on that day, it was never my
intention (to) harm you or your
families. I know that you are the
real victims of Nov. 19, 2005."
He went on to say he went to
Iraq to do his duty, serve his
country and do the best job he
"When my Marines and I

cleared those houses that day, I
responded to what I perceived
as a threat and my intention was
to eliminate that threat in order
to keep the rest of my Marines
alive," he said. "So when I told
my team to shoot first and ask
questions later, the intent wasn't
that they would shoot civilians, it
was that they would not hesitate
in the face of the enemy."
Military prosecutors worked
for more than six years to bring
Wuterich to trial on manslaugh-
ter charges that could have sent
him away to prison for life.
But only weeks after the long-
awaited trial started, they offered
Wuterich the deal that stopped

U.S. Attorney David B. Fein (left) speaks about an indictment charging four East Haven police
officers with federal civil rights offenses during a press conference in Bridgeport, Conn. on

FBI arrests 4 officers accused

of harassing Latino residents

The Associated Press

EAST HAVEN, Conn. Four police of-
'ficers, including the president of the local
,police union, were arrested Tuesday by
the FBI on charges that they assaulted il-
legal immigrants and covered up abuses
in a New Haven suburb where a'fed-
eral investigation found life was made
miserable for Hispanics. q
The East Haven officers assaulted indi-
viduals while they were handcuffed, utn-
'lawfully searched Latino businesses, and.
"harassed and intimidated individuals,
'including advocates. \vi messes and other
officers who tried to investigate or report
misconduct or abuse the officers commit-
ted, according to the federal indictment.
Federal authorities began investigating
-police in 2009 in East Haven. where the
federal probe last month documented a
pattern of abuse. The Hispanic popula-
tion had doubled in the past decade to
more than .10 percent of the seaside city's
,28,000 people, but Latino business own-
ers said rough treatment by police drove
away many newcomers from Mexico and
The arrests were welcomed by Hispanic
business owners in East Haven, includ-:
ing Luis Rodriguez, an immigrant from
Ecuador who had complained of harass-
ment by police at his Los Amigos Grocery
"They should have to pay, not with
-many years, but enough to make an ex-
'ample of them. They should not abuse
'their power," Rodriguez said. "All I ever
wanted was to be left in peace."
Officers Dennis Spaulding, David Cari
-and'Jason Zullo and 'Sgt. John Miller,'
president of the police union, are charged
with conspiracy, deprivation of rights and
-obstruction of justice.
Federal officials say the officers denied
Latino residents and their advocates the
right to be free of unreasonable searches
and seizures, the right to not be arrested
and detained without probable cause and
the right to not be arrested on false and
misleading evidence.
"In simple terms, these defendants
behaved like bullies with badges," said
Janice Fedarcyk, assistant director of the
NewYork office of the FBI.

Zullo allegedly described taking joy in,
singling out Latinos, telling Spaulding in a
2008 exchange quoted by the indictment
that he liked harassing drivers and re-
ferred to "persons who hav e drifted to this
country on rafts made of chicken wings
and are no%% residing" in East Haven.
Miller repeatedly slapped a rman hand--
cuffed in his car. \ rhile Spaulding threw a
man to the ground and repeatedly kicked
him while he %was handcuffed, according
to the indictment.
Mayor loseph Maturo said the four
men %vere arrested around 6 a.m. Tues-
day at their homes and at the police
Donald Cretella. Miller's lawyer, said his
client has been honored with awards and
risked his life in shootouts.
"John Miller is a hero in East Haven,"
he said. "He's decorated. He's a wonder-
ful family man. Hopefully, we'll clear his
Frank Riccio Jr., Spaulding's attorney,
said his client is an exemplary police,
"At this early stage it's our position Mr.,
Spaulding is not guilty of the charges. He's
been nothing but an exemplary police of
ficer. That's why this is shocking." I
It wasn't immediately clear who was
representing'Cari and Zullo.
The indictment says Miller reported to
a police department leader described as a
co-conspirator who blocked efforts bythe
police commission to investigate Miller's
misconduct. That refers to Chief Leonard
Gallo, according to his attorney, Jon Ein-
horn, who denied that Gallo blocked the
"It's unfair that he is mentioned in this
regard when he isn't even indicted," Ein-
horn said.
The indictment also accuses unnamed,
union leaders of intimidation and inter-
ference to protect the officers, including
a depiction of a rat posted on a bulletin
board and a cartoon saying "You know
what we do with snitches?" in a police
locker room.
The U.S. attorney for Connecticut,
David Fein, said the investigation is still
looking into other incidents and individ-
uals. Officials said no more arrests were
expected Tuesday.

Mr. Jimmy Edward Cart-
wright, 48, of Bartow, Fl
passed away on Saturday,
January 21, 2012 in the
Winter Haven Hospital.
He was born on October
31, 1963 in Jackson County
to the late Thomas Jeffer-
son Cartwright, Sr. and
Woody C. Bratcher. Mr.
Cartwright was" of the Bap-
tist faith and had spent
most of his lifetime in Jack-
son County where he was
self employed.
He .was preceded in
death by his parents.
Mr. Cartwright is sur-
vived by his brother Lonnie
Cartwright of Bartow; his
sister Lois Skeens of Alford;
and his sister-in-law Janice
Boyd of Cottondale.

wright will be held at

At various points in its
history, the chamber was
actually titled the Marian-
na Chamber of Commerce,
said Bill Stanton, the exec-
utive director of the Jack-
son County Development
Council, who has served
as-chamber manager and
a board member. The cur-
rent. chamber has worked
to represent all of:Jackson
County, Stanton said.
The chamber takes its
duty to represent the entire
county to the state level by
bringing a number of is-
sues to representatives.
"The chamber continues
to try to do the traditional
chamber of commerce
fiunltion in representing
business and professional
bodies in legislative af-
fairs," Stanton said.
Like many of the people
,and businesses it repre-
sents, the chamber has felt
the tough economic cli-
mate. This year, however, it
has an optimistic take with
its theme of taking pride
in Jackson County, Kim-
brough said.
"We're resilient and we're
strong and let's be proud of
it," Kimbrough said. "Now
is not the time to be shy. It's
time to take action."
Kimbrough wants people
and businesses to move
from the fear and paranoia
that surrounds the rough
economic times, and said
the chamber will continue



Workers to pump oil from grounded ship

The Asciaed Press

GIGLIO, Italy A barge carrying a
crane and other equipment hitched
itself to the toppled Costa Concor-
dia on Tuesday, signaling the start of
preliminary operations to remove a
half-million gallons of fuel from the
grounded cruise ship before it leaks
into the pristine Tuscan sea.
Actial pumping of the oil isn't ex-
pected to begin until Saturday, but
teams from the Dutch shipwreck sal-
vage firm Smit were working on the
bow of the Concordia on Tuesday
and divers were to make underwater
inspections to identify the precise
locations of the fuel tanks.
They were at work on the now-
hitched Meloria barge as divers who
blasted through a submerged sec-
tion of the third-floor deck located
another body from the wreckage,
bringing the death toll to 16.
The Concordia ran aground and
capsized off the Tuscan island of
Giglio on Jan. 13 after the captain
veered from his approved course
and gashed the ship's hull on a reef,
forcing the panicked evacuation of
4,200 passengers and crew.
The 16 bodies found so far include
the one located on the third-floor
deck Tuesday. Seven of the badly de-
composed bodies remain unidenti-
fied and are presumed to be among
some of the 17 passengers and crew
still unaccounted for. On Tuesday,
the U.S. ambassador to Italy David
Thorne was at Giglio's port where he
had lunch with relatives of two miss-
ing Americans, Gerald and Barbara
Heil of Minnesota.
"I think it's a tragedy, we feel very
badly for all the families," .Thorne
told journalists after the meeting.
Giglio and its waters are part of a
protected seven-island marine park,
favored by VIPs and known for its
clear waters and porpoises, dolphins
and whales.

Italian Guardia di Finanza and Civil Protection officers recover pieces of furniture
from the grounded cruise ship Costa Concordia off the Tuscan island of Giglio, Italy
on Monday.

Officials have identified an initial
six fuel tanks that will be drilled into,
tapped and outfitted with hoses to
vacuum out the oil from the Costa
Concordia. Franco Gabrielli, head of
the national civil protection agency,
told reporters Tuesday that once
those initial six tanks are emptied, 50
percent of the fuel aboard the ship
will have been extracted.
The pumping will contiriue 24
hours a day barring rough seas or
technical glitches, he said, noting
that these six tanks are relatively-
easy to access.
"At this stage we don't see a big risk
in an oil spill, but if weather deterio-
rates nobody can tell what the vessel
will do," Bart Huizing, head of op-
erations at Smit, told The Associated
The disaster prompted. the U.N.
cultural organization to ask the Ital-
ian government to restrict access of
large cruise ships to Venice, which
is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
UNESCO charged that the liners
cause water tides that erode building

foundations, pollute the waterways
and are an eyesore.
Italy's environment minister, Cor-
rado Clini, appeared to take up the
cause Tuesday. "The aim is to free St.
Mark's basin from the big ships once
new canals have been dug" Clini was
quoted by the Italian news agency
ANSA as saying during a public ap-
pearance in northern Italy. He did
not elaborate.
But Clini added that "in the mean-
time, it willbe up to the port author-
ity and to the city to decide which
.(sea) traffic is sustainable and com-
patible" with Venice's particular
Venice officials have said that since
tug boats guide the big cruise ships
through the part of the lagoon weav-
ing through the city, the risk of ac-
cidents is virtually eliminated. Div-
ers, meanwhile, continued blasting
holes inside the steel-hulled ship to
ease access for crews searching for
the missing. The search and rescue
operation will continue in tandem
with die fuel removal operation.

U.S. and adopting a hos-
tile approach, are seeking
to create tensions with the
Islamic Republic of Iran,"
the official Islamic Repub-
lic News Agency quoted
Ali Asghar Khaji, a senior
foreign ministry official,
as saying. He.called the EU
decision "irrational."
But other Iranian offi-
cials claimed the sanctions
would not work and
could even benefit OPEC
giant Iran by driving up
crude prices.
"The oil embargo will
lead, to higher prices. Eu-

rope will be the loser and
Iran will earn, more be-
cause ofWhigh prices," Iran's
oil ministry spokesman,
Alireza Nikzad Rahbar, told
state I1.
In London, Britain's
Defense Secretary Philip
Hammond said his comn-
try was ready to strengthen
its military presence in the
Gulf if needed.
The U.S -led convoy of
warships now in the Gulf
- which included Britain's
HMIS Argill frigate and
France's frigate La Monte
Picquet sent "a clear sig-
nal about the resolve of the
international community
to defend the right of free
passage through interna-
tional waters," Hammond
told reporters.
' The United States and al-.
lies already have warned
they would take swift ac-
tion against any Iranian
moves to choke off the
30-mile wide Strait of Hor-
muz. The primary objec-
tive of Western leaders
appears .to be waging an.
economic battle to weaken
Iran's resolve.

The taking of Bani
Walid, one of the last Gad-
hafi strongholds captured
by the new leadership
late last year, was the first
such organized opera-
tion by armed remnants
of Gadhafi's regime. A si-
multaneous outbreak of
shootings in the capital
and Libya's second largest
city Benghazi raised au-
thorities' concerned that
other networks of loyalists
were active elsewhere.
The security woes add
to the difficulties of the
ruling National Transi-
tional Cquncil, which is
struggling to establish its
authority and show Liby-
ans progress in stability
and good government.

In Bani Walid, hundreds
of well-equipped and
highly trained remnants
of Gadhafi's forces battled
for eight hours on Mon-
day with the local pro-
NTC revolutionary bri-
gade, known as the May
28 Brigade, said Mubarak

There were no immedi-

was part of some direct at-
tempt to restore the fam-
ily of Gadhafi, who was
swept out of power in Au-
gust and then killed in the
nearby city of Sirte in Oc-
tober. His sons, daughter
and wife have been killed,
arrested or have fled to
neighboring countries.
. Instead, the fighting
seemed to reflect a rejec-
tion of NTC control by a
city that never deeply ac-
cepted its rule, highlight-
ing the tensions between
those who benefited un-
der Gadhafi's regime and
those now in power.

Lady Tigers hold off late Sneads rally


5,:E..E D The Malone
Lady Tigers held off a late
rally by the Sneads Lady
Pirates to take a 57-54
road victory Monday af-
ternoon in Sneads.
Curteeona Brelove had
24 points to lead Malone,
with Shakira Smith add-
ing 17.
Tasharica McMillon
had 24 points and 11 re-
bounds to lead the Lady
Pi rares, with La'Tilya Bax-
ter scoring 14 points.
Logan Neel also had
eight points and 13 re-
bounds for SHS.
It was the fourth straight
win for the Lady Tigers

(19-3) and their 12th in
the last 13 games.
For Sneads, the loss
snapped a four-game
winning streak with the
team's first setback since
a Jan. 9 home loss to
The game was close ear-
ly on, with the teams tied
at 8-8 through one period
and exchanging the lead
a handful of times in the
second period.
A driving finish by Bak-
er and then a lay-up by
McMillon after a steal by
Baker put Sneads up 20-
17 with a minute left in
the half.
Smith scored on a put-
back, but the Lady Pirates
carried a 20-19 lead into

the halftime break.
In the third quarter, the
Lady Tigers started to
assert control thanks to
seven points from Brelove
and six from Smith.
A mid-range jumper by
Smith gave Malone a 38-
30 lead with 36 seconds
left in the period to cap a
13-3 run.
A 3-pointer by Smith
early in the fourth gave
the Lady Tigers a 41-31
edge, but Sneads an-
swered with a 9-2 run to
cut the margin to three
after -a bank shot by
A basket by Brelove and
another jumper by Smith
increased the Malone
lead to 49-42 with 3:18

remaining, but a 3-point
play by McMillon with
2:20 on the clock cut the
lead to four.
But baskets by Brelove
and Smith made it a 53-
45 Malone advantage,
and the lead remained at
eight after a free throw by
Brelove with 36.7 seconds
left that made it 56-48.
The Lady Pirates made
one last run, though, as
Baker made a free throw
after Brelove committed
her fifth foul, and then
scored after a Malone
turnover to make it 56-51
with 22.2 seconds to play.

Ganassi celebrates run of cham.pi.on--ships:

The Associated Press

CONCORD, N.C. The cele-
bration of Chip Ganassi's success
was supposed to be a surprise,
an opportunity to. gather his
great champions and toast their
remarkable runs.
He found about it, but the cel-
ebration will stay etched in Ga-
nassi's memory.
"It was one of the more special
rhoments of my racing career,"
Ganassi said Tuesday, searching
for the words to adequately de-
scribe his emotions.
Longtime partner Target last
week brought JimmyVasser, Alex
Zanardi, Juan Pablo Montoya,
Scott Dixon and Dario Franchitti
together for a two-day event in
Minneapolis honoring their title
runs. Vasser gave Ganassi his first
championship in 1996, Zanardi
added two more in '97-98, and
Montoya made it four consecu-
tive Ganassi titles in 1999.
Dixon started another four-
year run for Ganassi in 2008, and
Franchitti added the last three
IndyCar championships to the
incredible reign.
The core group had an enthu-
siastic reunion dinner on the first

2.-' i.

Owner Chip Ganassi holds the first and second place owners trophies in
victory lane at the Honda Indy 200 on Aug. 7.

day, and a large hincheon with
their Target partners the next.
The luncheon included a tribute
video to the late Dan Wheldon,
who drove three seasons for Ga-
nassi in IndyCar.
"So many years, and so many
championships for Chip, and
so many friendships," Montoya
It was an emotional two days
for almost involved for various
reasons. Vasser and Zanardi built
an incredibly tight friendship
during their time as teammates,

and although Zanardi now lives
in Italy, the two remain close
even though they don't see each
' other often.
"Other people could live 1,000
years and not experience the
intensity or the emotions of the
three years I spent with Jimmy
driving for that race team," Za-
nardi said. "It is by far the best
memories of my racing career."
For Dixon and Franchitti, it was
a chance to sit back and watch
the comedy routine of Vasser
and Zanardi. While it was a walk

down memory lane, it was yet
another move toward getting on
with business again after Whel-
don's fatal accident in the Oct.
16 season finale. Both were close
friends with Wheldon, and his
accident lingers over the champi-
onship, Franchitti's third-straight
and fourth overall, and the ninth
for Ganassi's open-wheel teams.
"We've reflected on the cham-
pionship, and when I went to the
Christmas party with the whole
Target team, there was a lot *of
congratulating each other and all
those sort of things," Franchitti
said. "But I don't think we cel-
ebrated it. When we think about
it, we are always going to be con-
nected (with Wheldon). That's
just the way it's going to be.
"So celebrating or not celebrat-
ing is not that important. We're
really just motivated to go out
and win another."
Motivation to win races and
championships has always been
what's driven Ganassi, and he's
still searching for that formula in
NASCAR. It's the only series he's
yet to find consistent success,
and last season was a black-eye
for an otherwise banner Ganassi

win over Bozeman

Floridan Correspondent

The Marianna High
School Boys soccer team
advanced one step closer
to a district championship
Monday night with a 3-1
victory over Bozeman.
The game was played
in Walton in a downpour
that left the ball barely
visible through much of
the 80 minutes of playing
Bozeman drew first
blood on a goal over
keeper Michael Mader's
head to go up 1-0.
The Bulldogs quickly
answered with a goal by
Marquelle Comer from 28
yards out.
John Metzler added a

goal to the right side of
the box to put the Bull-
dogs up 2-1 at the half.
In the second half of
the rain drenched game,
it was again Metzler who
put the game away with a
third and final goal.
The defense took over
.and stalled every drive
Bozeman made.
On the night, Mader
recorded 23 saves on 33
attempts with one goal
scored and nine missed
Following the game, a
soaked Marianna coach
Garyn Waller said he was
excited for the win.
"It was good to get out
of there with a win con-
sidering the circumstanc-
es," he said. "It was pretty

much a monsoon out
there. Now we get anoth-
er shot at Bay. They are
one of the better teams
in northwest Florida and
are undefeated in the dis-
trict for a reason. But we
have played them pretty
close both games this
year and we haven't been

can't this year."

."They throw well; they
just. .don't. know how
to pitch yet," she said.
"They've got to learn to
throw purpose pitches
and understand .why
they're throwing them.
They're called 'waste
pitches' and you need
to miss every once,.in a
while. That's the differ-
ence I see right now with
freshmen compared to
Brittany and Liz last year.
Those two knew how to
setup a batter, and that's
what the freshmen have
to learn."
But Hendrix said that
she wasn't worried about
taking a freshmen-laden
team into the season
based on her history with
young teams in the past.
"We won the state with
a bunch of freshmen (in
2010) and went two-and-

out with a bunch of soph-
omores, so that doesn't
say a lot," she said. "It
depends on what they do
between the lines and if
they show up. The thing
with freshmen is they've
got to find some consis-
tency. If they can find
that and get to where-
they're doing the same
thing Monday and Tues-
day that they do Thurs-
day and Friday and so
'forth, then I think we'll
be okay."
The Lady Indians will
open their season Fri-
day when they travel to
Port Arthur, Tex., for two
games against Lamar
State before traveling to
Galveston, Tex., Saturday
for a doubleheader with
Galveston College, and
to Eunice, La., on Sunday

Long lines bid farewell to Paterno

The Associated Press

Decked out in Penn State
hats and jackets, students
and townspeople stood in
a line more than a quar-
ter-mile long Tuesday to
pay their respects to Joe
Paterno, the coach who for
nearly a half century was
the face of their university.
Mourners waited for
hours along a main cam-
pus artery for the chance
to file past Paterno's closed
brown casket at the cam-
pus spiritual center during
a public viewing session.
Some departed crying. All
were moved.
"He was my hero. He was
my hero. I had to come,"
said a sobbing Gloria Spic-
er, who was freshman., in
1966 when Paterno started
his first season as head
coach at Penn State. The
85-year-old Paterno, the
winningest coach in ma-
jor college football history,
died Sunday of lung can-
cer. He had been fired just
days before learning of his
diagnosis in November.
"He was a teacher to me,"
Spicer said. "He taught me
to be a better person and a
better teacher."
Spicer and others walked
slowly past the undraped
casket which had an, "hon-
or guard" of two Penn State
players one past and
one present. Six feet away,
a stylized, black-and-white
photo of a smiling Paterno,
arms crossed in front of his
chest, sat on an easel.
Large windows bathed

Tributes surround a statue of Penn State football coach Joe Paterno, outside Beaver Stadium
on the Penn State campus Monday. Paterno died Sunday morning.

were preceded by the Pa-
terno family the coach's
son, Scott, was seen at the
gathering along with
current and former play-
ers. The current Nittany
Lions wore dark suits and
arrived in three blue Penn
State buses, the same ones
that once carried Paterno
and the team to games
at Beaver Stadium on fall
Among the former play-
ers- was Mike McQueary.
As a graduate assistant to
Paterno in 2002, he went
to the coach saying he
had witnessed former de-
fensive coordinator, Jerry
Sandusky assaulting a boy
in the shower at the Penn,
State football building.
Paterno relayed that to his
bosses including the
head of campus police -
but unifersitry trustees felt
he should have done more,
and it played into their de-
cision to OLIst the longtime
coach on Nov. 9. That came
four days after Sandusky

was arrested on multiple
child sex-abuse counts.
Dressedin ablue coatand
tie with a white shirt, the
school colors, McQueary
was among thousands of
expected mourners at an
event that was to stretch.
late into Tuesday night.
One current and. one
former team member will
stand guard over the cas-
ket for the duration of the
ptiblic viewing, athletic de-
partment spokesman Jeff
Nelson said.
"Going in 'there, wait-
ing two hours in line, it
was worth every second of
it," Pentn State junior Rob'
Gressinger said. "It helps
in the grieving process for
,everybody and I hope the
rest. of the people that are
waiting in linelonger than
I did, get to experience the
same thing.".
Earlier Tuesday, a .line
of ex-players., stretched
:around the corner and
down the block. Among
the mourners were former

Penn State and Pittsburgh
Steelers great Franco Har-
ris. Others there included
NFL receivers Deon Butler
and Jordan Norwood, Nor-
wood's father and Baylor
assistant coach Brian Nor-
wood and former quarter-
back Daryll Clark.
The event marked the
first of three days of pub-
lic mourning as the Penn
State community in State
College and beyond said
goodbye to the man who
led the Nittany Lions to
.409 wins over 46 years and
raised the national profile
of the school.
There is another public
xieting Wednesday at Pas-
querilla Spiritual Center,
and after that Paterno's
family will hold a private
funeral arid procession
through State College.
On Thtu sday, the school's
basketball arena will be
the site of a public service
called A Memorial. for
Joe." Tickets were quickly
snapped l-p for the event,

even though there was a
two-per-person limit for
those ordering.
Former players be-
gan arriving shortly after
members of Paterno's last
team filed in. Some play-
ers hugged, and new Penn
State coach Bill O'Brien
shook hands with oth-
ers at the curb outside the
Penn State linebacker
Khairi Fortt recalled his
coach's lessons.
"He said the most im-
portant thing for us was to
keep the Penn State tradi-
tion going," the sophomore
from Stamford, Conn., said
after leaving the viewing.
Scott Paterno has said
that despite the turmoil
surrounding his termina-
tion from the school, Joe
Paterno i remained peace-
ful and upbeat in his final
days and still loved Penn

Bitterness over Paternos
dismissal has turned up
in many forms, from on-
line postings to a rewrit-
ten newspaper headline
placed next to Paterno's
statue at the football sta-
dium blaming the trustees
for his death. A headline
that read "FIRED" was
crossed out and made to
read, "Killed by Trustees."
Lanny Davis, lawyer for the
school's board, said threats
have been made against
the trustees.
Scott Paterno, however,
stressed his father did not
die with broken heart and
did not harbor resentment
toward Penn State.
"His legacy is still going
to be filled with the great'
things that he did. Look at
this place," 1969 Penn State
graduate Tom Sherman
said before tearing up. "It's
like he's part of your life. I
admire that guy so much."

Dear Annie: A\ Iy wife fs addicted to play-,
ing games on her smartphone. She lies in
bed in the morning playing games before
she gets ready for work. \Vhen she comes
home., she is often on dhe phone when
she ualks through the door. When we sit
down for supper, she plays while we eat.
At bedtime, she lies in bed and plays un-
til she falls asleep. If we go out, she pla ys
games at the restaurant.
She hardly does anything around the .
house anymore and barely notices our
son, let alone interacts with him. How do'
I breakher of this habit?

Dear Lost: These games can be highly
.addictive, and your wife must admit the
extent of her involvement before 'she will.
be able to cut back. Have you addressed
this directly with her? Have you told her'
how neglected you feel and how much
your son misses his mother? Have you
asked her to limit her game-playing to
specific times? -

Bridge players covet and generate'tricks with
their honor cards, which is this week's theme.
Howevertoday's deal involves a second impor-
tant aspect of declarer play and defense.
You are South, in three no-trump. West leads
the spade queen. What would you do? Before
engaging the enemy in trick-to-trick combat,
count your immediate winners. Here, you have
seven: two spades, three hearts, one diamond
and one club. So, you need two more tricks
from somewhere. The clear candidate is the
diamond suit. However, since you need three
diamond tricks, do not lead the'queen for a fi-
nesse. This will break even if the suit splits 3-3,
but costs badly against many 4-2 divisions.
The right basic plan is to lead diamonds twice
toward the hand with the two honors. But with
this layout, if East ducks the first round and
takes his king on the second, your suit will be
blocked.'After regaining the lead and cashing
the diamond jack, you will need a dummy en-
try to get to the diamond ace.
Win trick one in the dummy and lead a low
diamond toward your queen-jack. Assuming
East ducks, win with your queen, return to the
dummy with a heart to the jack, and call for
another low diamond. Here, as you were care-
ful with your entries, everything is wine and

If she refuses to deal with this or
change her behavior, the next step is
counseling before your resentment
creates a more serious problem.

Dear Annie: I disagree with your re-
sponse to "Loveless in Spokane," the 72-
year-old geezer who thinks women in his
senior complex should bed down with
him after they have dated a "few times."
These ladles, and it is obvious they are
ladies, were born and raised in an era
When good girls did not have sex with a
man until after'they were married. This
old guy is a cad.

Dear Senior: Many readers pointed
out that these women may not wish to
have sex outside of marriage, a perfectly
respectable position. If that's the case,
however, they should tell him so he un-
derstands the ground rules and doesn't
keep badgering them.

4-minute offense

pretty important too

There are two words that frustrate
football fans most: prevent defense.
Almost as tough to swallow: prevent
Admittedly, seeing your team lay back
in the final minutes of a game attempt-
ing, seemingly just hoping, to protect
a lead is as maddening as it gets. That
old cliche about a prevent defense pre-
venting only one thing-winning- re-
mains as true as it is tired.
Thankfully, neither team in the Super
Bowl adheres to that approach. They
don't allow the mindset that seems to
creep into the headsets of coaches and
offensive coordinators when they have
a small lead in the final five minutes and
need to pick up a few first downs to salt
away victory. Don't do anything foolish. -
Don't gamble. Stay conservative.,
"You have to be aggressive at those
times," Giants offensive coordinator
Kevin Gilbride says of the four-minute
,offense. "You need to attack, not step
"If you have been running the ball
well, that's an advantage because you
want to use up clock. But you play to
your strengths."
And the strengths of the Giants and
Patriots include their attacking mind-
sets on offense.
"We always put ourselves in good
positions and stay in rhythm," Patriots
tackle Matt Light said. "Just staying on
track. Not trying to reinvent the wheel,
not trying to do anything more than we,
had to. I think we just go out there and
play with confidence and do the things
that we do."
No matter what point of the game it
happens to be.
Too often, offenses turn downright
meek while trying to stay in front late,
in a close game. Keep the clock mov-
ing becomes the mantra when keep-
ing the chains moving needs to be the
In their wild-card matchup with Pitts-
burgh, the Broncos held a 14-point lead
in the second half and were up by 10
early in the fourth quarter. The\ sub-
sequently got downright timid with the
ball, the Steelers rallied to tie it, and
nearly got in position for a win at the
end of regulation.
The game got to overtime, which
.lasted one play: an 80-yard passing play
from Tim Tebow to Demaryius Thomas
that was anything but conservative.
"I'd love to have a crystal ball and
know what the defense is going to do
every snap, but that's the game," Denver
offensive coordinator Mike McCby said.
"With our style of offense that we're run-
ning right now, we have to make a lot of
adjustments, like the touchdown pass
to Demaryius. We drew that up at half-
time. It was one of those deals where we
were waiting for the right opportunity
to call it."
What about avoiding getting into
that situation by staying in front of the
"We're doing whatever we think gives
our team the best opportunity to win,"

in each week, and my'job is to call the
plays that I think, or as a staff that we
think is the best thing for our football
team to win. We might have called a
little more aggressively ... as we thought
the way the game was going. That's go-
ing to change from week to week.
"How are you running the football?
What is the defense doing against you?
Are they trying to take certain things
Some teams, particularly those with
great quarterbacks such as Tom Brady,
Aaron Rodgers, Drew Brees and Eli
Manning, stick with what they do best,
even in the four-minute offense. And'
that's throwing the ball.
Few coaches are as aggressive in such New England's Bill Belich-.
ick, Green Bay's Mike McCarthy, New
Orleans' Sean Payton and New York's
Tom Coughlin. Their strategy put
the ball in the hands of your best player
-usually works.
With the Giants and Patriots, it some-
times is a necessity because they don't
run the ball particularly well;: New Eng-
land ranked 20th in rushing, far better
than the Giants, who were 32nd. As in
dead last.
So protecting a late lead with the run
becomes problematic.
But the Saints ranked sxbth on the
ground, making them even more un-
predictable and dangerous in the
four-minute offense.
"I think the running game just helps
you offensively when you want to have
that element that can control a game.
that can control that time of posses-
sion,, and that can control the clock."
Payton said.
Yet he will never hesitate to have Brees
put it up to put a clamp on a win.
There's the rub, though. Too many
teams and too many coaches play not
to lose.
And lose.
"That's not a mentality you can have,
especially at the end (of a game)," Gil-
bride says.
"You have players who you have confi-
dence in and who got you into the lead.
To not use them, not use your strengths,
is foolish." ,
Still, teams get foolish every week.

Peyton Manning plans to be on the field next season, whether it's with Indianapolis will probably
be determined after the NFL Draft in April. Andrew Luck is expected to be the number one pick,
which belongs to the Colts.

Manning eyes return in 2012

; The Associated Press

ton Manning still intends
to play football.
He's also -no fan of.the
Colts' big offseason over-
haul that included the fir-
ing of coach Jim Caldwell
and other executives.
In an interview that ap-
peared Tuesday in The In-
dianapolis Star, Manning
touched on even-thing
from his future plans to
the difficulty he's had cop-
ing with all the changes.
He has not responded to
inteniew requests made
by The Associated Press.
"It's 20 degrees, it's snow-
ing, the building is abso-
lutely empry except when
you see coaches cleaning
out their offices," Manning
said. "I guess it's the reality
of the football world, just
not something I've had to
deal with very often. But
I'm in there every day, so I
have to sit there and see it.
Everybodyv's being evaluat-
ed and I'm no different. It's
not the best environment.
':J's unfortunate because
so many of them have been
such a big part of so many
big wins here, and this is
so ... sudden," Manning
added. "Their keys didn't
work the next day. There's
no other way to do it? I
don't know. That's hard to
see, all these people leav-
ing; And I may be behind
them. Who knows?"
One thing Manning does
know is that last week's
discussion about his "im-
pending" departure from
football was premature.
He poked fun at the fren-
zy surrounding a Twitter
post from actor Rob Lowe,
who wrote Manning was
expected to announce his
retirement last week. Man-
ning said the whole thing
caught him off-guard
"I never thought 'Sod-

apop Curtis' would an-
nounce my. retirement,"
he said, referring to. Lowe's
character in the 1983
. movie "The Outsiders." "I
always thought I would be
the one to announce it."
The biggest questions,
of course, are about Man-.
ning's health and his fu-
ture in Indianapolis.
While Manning would
not say where he is in his
recovery or how close he
is to being 100 percent-
41- months after having
his latest neck surgery, he
said new general manger
Ryan Grigson inferred the
decision 'about paying
Manning a $28 ,million
bonus in March or letting
him become a free agent
would be made by team
owner Jim Irsay.
"Whatever happens,
happens," Manning said.

"I can't give you a predic-
tion because Jim (Irsay)
and I will sit down at some
point and he'll get a feel
for where I am and I'll get
a sense of what direction
he wants to go. Right now,
I have no idea."
Irsay has repeatedly said
he that Manning's health,
not money, will dictate the
Colts' decision. Manning,
who again expressed his
desire to finish his NFL
career in the same place it
began, said he has not met
with Irsay to find out the
Colts' thoughts.
"That's going to hap-
pen -at some point, but
we haven't had that con-
versation yet because we
"really don't need to have
that conversation yet,"
Manning said.
