Man charged with sexual battery on girl

From staff reports
A Cottondale man is ac-
cused of committing sexual
battery on a 14-year-old girl
on Valentine's Day.
According to the complaint,

against 42-year-old Andre
Juan Cooper, he is accused
of calling the girl on her cell
phone as she walked home
from school on Feb. 14, and
asking her to come to his
house on Front Street.

He allegedly told the girl
that he had something for
her there. When she arrived,
police say, Cooper was in
the bedroom and told her to
come in there and sit on the
bed. He allegedly "told her

she was cute and came over
to her and forced his hand up
her shirt and onto her breast,"
according to the complaint.
Police say he then allegedly
forced her onto the bed, held
her down and committed a

sexual act. The victim told
him to stop and was able to
get away from him, officials
reported. As the girl was leav-
ing Cooper's residence, po-
lice say, he told her not to tell


Golson Elementary students

celebrate Mardi Gras festival

The halls of Golson Elementary School were filled with masked revelers Tuesday morning as the school's second graders had their own
Mardi Gras Parade. Caleb Garrett (right) and Jade Hendrix carry some of the wide variety of shoebox "floats" the students made for
the parade.

Shoebox floats with beads, masks and more parade through school


Barbies, racecars, and a menagerie
of animal figurines, dinosaurs and
stuffed animals were hailed by the
crowd of cheering parents and Golson
Elementary School students from atop
their shoebox floats during the school's
Mardi Gras parade this Tuesday.
In class, students learned the his-
tory of this annual celebration. Sec-
ond-grade students put together their
masks and floats made from a shoe-
box at home. Second-grade teacher

) For more photos of the Mardi Gras
celebration, see page 8A.

Jennifer Waller said it was a good proj-
ect for the students and their parents
to work on together.
"They're so excited and they want to
show off their work," Waller said. "It
shows off their personality."
The students, donned in their masks
and beads, marched their floats around
the school as Chipola College student
Travis Bontrager played everything

from "When the Saints Go Marching
In" to "In the Mood" on his saxophone.
Rachel Morgan, mother of Jaylon,
said the float took about two weeks to
make. Stickers, beads and construc-
tion paper transformed the shoebox
into a theatre.
Kristin Roberts, mother of Lily, said
they spent a few days putting her Diva
float together. The pink float had strips
of color on it and centered on a doll.
"The parade was a lot of fun," Roberts
said. "It was great to see the creativity."

woman dies

in crash
From staff reports

A Chipley woman was killed Tuesday
morning after her vehicle collided with
a tree on State Road 2.
According to the Florida Highway Pa-
trol, 26-year-old Jessica Paul was head-
ing east on State Road 2 around 8:43
a.m. when her vehicle drifted left onto
the north shoulder of the roadway. The
front of the vehicle hit a speed limit and
seatbelt sign, making it spin counter-
clockwise. The vehicle finally stopped
after its right side hit a tree.
Airheart airlifted Paul to Tallahassee
Memorial Hospital, where staff pro-
nounced her dead. According to high-
way patrol, Paul was not wearing a

icon dies at 106
"aryWilson outlived many of
the children she taught at
Liberty Hill, Buckhorn, Union
Grove, and Graceville Elementary
schools. But those who live on remem-
ber her as a key figure in their young
Long before she passed away Mon-
day at the age e of 106, she had become
an icon of the black community in
Jackson County, revered for her dedica-
tion to young people in the schools
and in her church, Greater Buckhorn
Missionary Baptist Church.
The Pastor there, Rev. William Harvey,
called her a pillar of the church and
"She was very, very, very important
to the life of this church and I can't
think of anything she wouldn't do for
anyone," Harvey said. "When I'came
here 35 years ago, she was already
there and has been so helpful to me
through the years. She helped direct
the choirs, the youth programs, and
Swas deeply involved in all the minis-
tries we have, really. I haven't seen one
just like her before or since. Man, she
was dedicated."
He said she taught him things all the
way up to her 100th year, when her
health had declined to the point that
she could no longer attend services.

Other Opinion

Disquiet in

the middle
The Tampa Tribune
History shows no other system of govern-
ment is superior to our blend of free
enterprise and democracy, reinforced with
constitutionally based protection of individual
liberty and personal property.
Most of us consider these core issues settled,
even as we spiritedly debate the particulars: the
right level of help for the poor, the best tax rate,
how to balance security and freedom, the smart-
est foreign policy, what to do about national
debt and other important details, yet details
Some economists and political observers are
worrying about something bigger, the possibility
the values of the majority could fundamentally
change if stresses on the middle class increase.
In an article in the latest edition of Foreign Affairs
magazine, Francis Fukuyama poses a troubling
question: "What if the further development of
technology and globalization undermines the
middle class and makes it impossible for more
than a minority of citizens in an advanced society
to achieve middle-class status?"
What the economist at Stanford is asking is
academic and premature, but it's not the sort of
question that should be allowed to take us by
surprise: Can democracy survive the decline-of
the middle class? This question goes beyond
President Obama's vague harangue about the
increase in economic inequality and former Mas-
sachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney's complaint that
Obama wants to make this country too much like
a European social welfare state.
There's an important third side to the issue.
The middle class appears to be losing ground in
advanced economies in North America, Europe
and East Asia. "Middle class" means educated
people who are not rich and not poor but who
own property and expect their children, if they
apply themselves, to be able to enjoy a similar if
not better lifestyle.
Fukuyama wants us to think about the reality
that if the middle class fades a choice between
protecting its own property and preserving broad
participation in democracy, it might well choose
"In countries such as China and Thailand," he
writes, "many middle-class people feel threat-
ened by the redistributive demands of the poor
and hence have lined up in support of au-
thoritarian governments that protect their class
As the middle class emerges in places like India,
Brazil and Turkey, he asks,us to consider what
happens if our own middle class continues to
stagnate or begins to erode. It is unclear where
they would turn. Democrats are wrong to assume
economic discomfort and increasing inequality
are sure to help the liberal cause.
Fukuyama correctly notes that "the left has not
been able to make a plausible case for an agenda
other than a return to an unaffordable form of
old-fashioned social democracy."
Obama complains that the rich aren't doing
enough to help the poor, but he leaves the work-
ing poor and middle class with no idea how he
plans to reduce inequality and, if he did, how it
could increase their pay. No one is offering, Fu-
kuyama says, either a "coherent analysis of what
happens to the structure of advanced societies
as they undergo economic change" or "a realistic
agenda that has any hope of protecting a middle-
class society."
Americans' best instincts will be to put their
faith in freedom and democracy, as they always
have. But only as long as the middle class believes
those values are compatible will both be secure.

5 long months until GOP

nominating convention

Scripps Howard News Service

Maybe the Republicans will
have a real whiz-bang
convention when they
get to Tampa in August. The odds
are still against it, despite the
neck-and-neck race between Rick
Santorum and Mitt Romney.
The polls show them in a dead
heat nationally, but the betting still
is on Romney to win, even if it's by
a nose. The usual reason applies
here: money. Romney has more of
it than Santorum, and that means
buying the advertising and orga-
nization necessary. But this is a
battle for the nomination, and the
Republican conservatives who have
fed Santorum's rise quite obviously
don't count Romney as their best
If Romney should falter in his
home state of Michigan, in the
face of growing support there for
Santorum, the entire dynamic
might change. Then the question
would become whether the former
Pennsylvania senator with the retro
ideas on social issues could whip
President Barack Obama, given that
Americans are mainstream voters
who rarely shift far left or right.
Clearly, Santorum appeals to much
of the GOP's sizable right-oriented
base. Are Republicans willing to put
ideology above electability? Don't
bet against it.

So far, electability has played a
major role in Romney's success, as
up and down as that has been. He
is considered moderate enough to
at least hold his own with inde-
pendents and those Republicans
who generally vote the middle.
Should Romney be forced more to
the right just to win the nomina-
tion, his chances of beating Obama
also diminish. This is especially
true because economic indications
- including employment figures
- suddenly have given the presi-
dent a sunnier re-election forecast.
There are so many variables it is
hard to keep up with them. The one
constant is that Romney, despite
his front-running status for most of
the campaign, clearly doesn't excite
Republicans. A whole batch of the
GOP faithful find him not only dull
and perhaps a bit too privileged,
but also the perfect model of the
very rich white guy who has domi-
nated American politics from the
nation's very beginning.
Then there is Romney's religion.
While few speak openly about
the history of Mormonism, most
political experts believe that, un-
fortunately, there's an underlying
element of religious intolerance for
a church founded on ideals such as
plural marriage, long outlawed but
still practiced in some quarters.
How that manifests itself in the
long run is anyone's guess. But reli-
gious bias seems to have become a
more prominent element of today's

politics than in 1960, when Jack
Kennedy became the first Catholic
elected to the White House. Some
consider the Mormon faith outside
the Christian mainstream.
Only two months into the prima-
ry season, the race seems in danger
of generating a political overload.
Add that to the fact that much of
the country's necessary business
has been set aside, and voters have
a right to fear where we are headed.
Congress is paralyzed and the
president is in full campaign, mode.
Only Secretary of State Hillary
Clinton, the candidate Democrats
rejected four years ago, seems to
have her priorities straight, leaving
a whole lot of voters wondering
what if.
The last time there was even a
hint of the old-fashioned con-
ventions that captivated us for
weeks was in 1968, when Richard
Nixon held off a challenge from
Ronald Reagan in Miami and the
Democrats darn near tore up their
party over Vietnam in Chicago. The
Republicans have five months to
shake down to a nominee. Chances
are they will manage to accomplish
this, despite turning us all off along
the way. Is there anything we don't
already know about these guys?
In the meantime, you may want
to plug your ears, close your eyes
and think about other things.

Letters to the Editor

Disagreeing with comments about California

This is in response to the letter
sent in by Milton Kendrick, that
appeared in the Wednesday, Feb.
15 Floridan, in which he stated,
and I quote,"Every loose nut in the
country rolled to California, most
of them stayed there and unfor-
tunately had kids." With this I am
personally offended, because I was
born and grew up there, which is
not unfortunate but a blessing.
My parentsmoved to California
from Jackson County seeking a
better life for themselves and my
sisters and brother, which they did
find. They were not nuts. My father,
who fought and was wounded in
WWII, was not a nut. My mother,
who raised four kids and her two
sisters after their mother died, is
not nuts.
Since Mr. Kendrick has some
authority, when it comes to Cali-
fornia., as he has traveled into and
around California for over 35 years,
he-must be correct, right? How
about this, the people of Florida
are uneducated, ignorant, narrow
minded rednecks. I have lived

"in" Florida for almost 35 years,
not traveled into or around but
"lived in" Florida. This would
trump Mr. Kendrick's "authority."
So, am I right about "all" the
people of Florida? Of course not,
they are out there though, not only
in Florida but in every state, this I
have learned from traveling coast
to coast for most of my life.
" At the very end of Mr.Kendrick's
letter he states the purpose of his
letter, which he got off track of, was
to comment about the dead dog
being dragged behind the cleanup
truck. Just because it may be a new
policy to drag a dead animal to the
landfill doesn't mean that it is the
right thing to do. Drag it to the edge
of the woods like you used to.
If you travel U.S. 231 and the
other county roads you will see
dead animals of all sizes on the'
edge until they are nothing but
bones. I would like Mr. Kendrick to
ask himself or anyone else that has
the same frame of mind, this ques-
tion: "What would you say or do if
your child or grandchild became

extremely upset after seeing a
dead animal being dragged behind
a county or DOT truck?" I bet you
wouldn't say, "Oh, the driver was
just doingJhis job," then. I treat
"all" animals, living or dead, with
I believe in hunting, fishing, driv-
ing cars that run on gasoline, eating
meat and hugging trees. Oh yes,
one last thing, I'm from California.
Thank you for donation
I would like to take this moment
to thank Mr. Matt White for his
most generous donation to the
Center. We now have our game
and television replaced. It is good
honest citizens such as yourself Mr.
White that we are indeed grateful
to. Within 24 hours of the theft, we
had a larger television and a new
game. Once again thank you. Life is
active and grand at the Center!

Veterans Court headed to Broward County

The Associated Press

all these decades, Chief Judge Pe-
ter Weinstein still remembers the
Weinstein had served with him
in the U.S. Army at Fort Gordon in
Augusta, Ga., in the beginning of
the 1970s, as the Vietnam War raged
overseas. But by the time the soldier
was discharged, he was an alcoholic,
his rank reduced several levels, his
future uncertain. He was, in many
ways, the prototype of the kind of
veteran the judge now hopes to help
with the upcoming Broward County
Veteran's Court: perhaps troubled
or misguided, but deserving of help
back to a stable life.
"He had such,a severe issue with
alcohol that he once passed out
on duty, and ended up being dis-
charged. I tried to get him help, but
by that time it was just too late. I
can't imagine what his civilian life
was like," says Weinstein, a former
S Florida state senator who served as
a legal officer in the Army. "I have
thought of him often as we planned
this court. Someone like him could
have benefitted from this kind of
Led byWeinstein, the 17th Judicial
Circuit Court of Florida is forming a
Veteran's Court division in Broward,
designed to provide rehabilitative
services to veterans facing criminal
charges. The hope, much like drug
courts, is that vets can avoid jail or
prison through comprehensive,
court-monitored programs that ad-
dress the underlying issues, which
are often related to post traumatic
stress disorders.
The opening is part of a larger
movement to help vets across Flori-
da. Legislation that would allow the
establishment of separate courts for
veterans was unanimously passed
in House Appropriations Commit-
tee. The chief judge in each judicial
circuit would be allowed but not
required -' to create a vet court.
Two similar bills are making their
way through the Senate.-
"We just wanted to make sure the
state was aligned so we can open vet
courts if needed for vets here and
those soldiers returning. We need
to recognize the stress of the battle-
field and help them rather than lock
them up in jail and throw away the
key. We want to make sure they get
the assistance they need without
letting them off the hook," says Rep.

Darren Soto, D-Kissimmee. "The vet
courts already in Palm Beach and
Miami-Dade counties'would serve
as models."
With its planned Broward open-
ing this year, South Florida will have
three courts available to the region's
nearly 287,000 veterans along with
the thousands of whom are expect-
ed to return from Iraq and Afghani-
stan as the United States continues
its military pullouts.
"These soldiers are coming home
to rebuild their lives and some will
have difficulties. Often the horrors
of what they saw at war can end up
playing a heavy role in their con-
duct," said Weinstein. "They served
this country and we want to treat
them with respect and get them the
help they need. We have tremen-
dous resources to help to put them
back on the right track. We want this
to be a therapeutic court."
First Docket
Weinstein hopes to establish the
first docket in the spring, complete
with a VA representatives, a judge
and volunteer mentors who have
military backgrounds and a certain
understanding that comes', from
shared experiences.
"So many soldiers come home
strengthened by their service and
ready to re-engage in their commu-
nities and others will struggle. The
sad fact is that we know the courts
are often an entry point in the sys-
tem, but once there, we want to
make sure the soldiers receive the
services they earned and need,"
says Chris Deutsch, spokesman for
the National Association of Drug
Court Professionals, a membership
training and advocacy organization
for drug and vet courts. "
So far, there are 88 vet courts
and more than 100 in the planning
Veterans, while no more likely to
be arrested than those in the gen-
eral population, account for nine
out of every 100 prisoners in United
States jails and prisons, according to
a 2008 report of The Center for Men-
tal Health Services' National Gains
Center. Up to 20 percent of Iraq and
Afghanistan wars veterans suffer
from post-traumatic stress disorder,
according to the U.S. Department of
Veteran Affairs.
"Almost every week, we are getting
calls about a new vet court. Part of
the rapid growth is that there are al-
ready some 2,600 drug courts with

a similar infrastructure already in
place and we know that the concept
of accountability and treatment
works. In most vet courts, there is
an existing drug court companion,"
says Deutsch. "Also the VA has done
a lot of outreach initiatives and
federal funding is available for the
courts. Lastly, some of the growth
comes from local criminal justice
systems that are preparing for an
unprecedented number of sol-
diers coming home from Iraq and
Court's Intent
Weinstein stressed the court is not
designed to offer preferential treat-
ment to vets or deprive them of their
due process; rather, it's intended to
guide them into existing Veteran
Administration substance-abuse
and mental-health programs. Those
charged with crimes will gather in
court on a designated day where
they can meet with representatives
from the VA to access benefits and
be placed in the appropriate reha-
bilitative programs, which typically
lasting at least a year.
"If it's a horrendous, violent crime
then it will be treated as such. This
program is not about guilt or inno-
cence, it's about diverting them into
a programming that can help them,"
Weinstein says. "A veteran's service
will not be viewed as an excuse for
doing something wrong."
In November, 2010 Circuit Court
Judge Ted Booras, a former Ma-
rine, began presiding over vet court
in Palm Beach County, home to

at McDonald's

From staff reports

A former manager at
a local McDonald's fast
food restaurant has been
charged with grand theft
in an investigation which
began last July.
According to the com-
plaint filed against 30-
year-old Marianna resi-

she is accused of stealing
almost $5,000 from the
Authorities say Williams

27 and July 28 of last year

$2,330, and the July 28th
deposit was for $2,115. But

State Brief

House panel OKs
drug-testing bill
House Appropriations
Committee has cleared
a revised version of a
measure that allows state
agencies to randomly
drug-test employees.
The panel OK'd the bill
on Tuesday after voting
it down last week. Bill
sponsor Jimmie T. Smith
rewrote it so that no extra
money for drug tests is
needed. Tests will be paid

for out of the agencies'
existing budgets. Another
change made by the In-
verness Republican is that
the random sample of em-
ployees to be tested can't
be more than 10 percent of
the agency's workforce.
The measure allows state
agencies to randomly test
all workers every three
months. It makes it easier
to fire those who show
positive for drugs after a
first test.

project, or performed, depending
on the skill.
"It's all career-based stuff,"
said Albert Nix, Cottondale High
School's FBLA sponsor and the
technology coordinator. "It's all
learning about future careers."


Most of the FBLA sponsors said
the bulk of the studying was left
to the students. Many used mate-
rials and old tests found online.
"They worked together to study
and prepare," said Mavis McLean,
the business education teacher at
Marianna High School.
The work has only begun for all
the schools. Students take a differ-
ent test every year, so some have



started to work on their skills for
next year's competition.
Somer Barrick, the Business
Education Teacher at Graceville
High School, said this competi-
tion gave her an idea of tests to
practice for next year. She wants
her students to try for the Digital
Design, Public Speaking and Job
Interview tests. Depending on the
test they took, some of the stu-


dents who placed between first or
fourth place in this competition
have the opportunity to go to the
state competition held April 28 to
May 1 in Orlando.
Many of the FBLA clubs will
begin fundraising in the coming
months to be able to attend the
state competition. Anyone who
wants to donate to a team should
contact the school.

particular experience in which
she helped him learn lessons
in patience and see the bigger
"There was a time when we
had (certain meetings) on
Saturday evenings, in a period
where not all the people who
were supposed to show up
would come," he said. "It would
be me, and her, and my wife,
and maybe one or two more. It
was pretty discouraging to me.
On one of those nights, I walked
down the aisle to turn out the
lights. She asked me what I was
doing, and I told her, 'Well, I'm
turning out the lights. Nobody's
here.' She said to me, 'Well,
we're here.' So back I went, turn-
ing the lights back on. This hap-
pened a couple of times before
I finally got it. I didn't turn the
lights off after that, no matter if
it was just us. We could do what
we could do."
Wilson was also a key leader in
Second West Missionary Baptist
Association activities for many
Wilson started her career in
elementary education at the
tender age of 15, before she
even had a high school diploma
of her own. She first taught at
church-based schools of Liberty
Hill and Buckhorn. Later, she
moved on to Union Hill, where
she spent the majority of her

church-based schools for African-American children.

earning her teaching certificate
at FAMU, then known as Florida
Agricultural and Mechanical
College. She went there in sum-
mers off from teaching during
the "grace period" years the
state allowed teachers to get
their certifications. She earned
her degree and certification in
1953, a task that took five or six
Many of her students went
on to become professionals in
a wide range of occupations
including medicine and law.
Known as a no-nonsense but

loving teacher, Wilson
demanded much of her stu-
dents and made sure they knew
she believed they could achieve
on the same level as their white
counterparts even though
the students were segregated
throughout all but one of her
teaching years. She made it her
business to instill that belief in
her students, as well.
And her devotion to educating
children inspired at least three
other family members to follow
in her path.
Wilson's son, LeRoy, her

grandson Lamar, and a niece
Callie Mary Thomas, whom she
helped raise, all became educa-
tors. Through the years, she also
made sure the families in her
extended community had what
they needed to survive in hard
times. She lived frugally herself
so she could also help countless
children in the family and com-
munity attend college.
Lamar Wilson said his grand-
mother was a soul mate and
one of his greatest champions
through life.
"She was my first teacher,"
he said. "My foundation and
love for learning and educa-
tion, and my career, is rooted
in her. When other kids were
out playing, I was often inside
learning phonics or how to write
my name. By the time I actually
started school, I was ahead of
the game. She was serious about
education, elocution and gram-
mar, really a perfectionist. She
was very firm, but very loving.
She knew there was a purpose
to it and she was resolute. She
got things done."
Her niece, Callie Mary Thom-
as, is a retired English teacher.
She said Wilson guided her into
that career.
"She started taking care of
me when I was a small child,"
Thomas said. "I lived with them
at night, and she was very good
to me. She helped provide just
about everything I needed as'
a child, and as an adult she
helped send me to school. She
was one of my teachers at Buck-
horn Elementary, and she was a
strict disciplinarian because she
wanted you to learn and achieve
so that you would be able to
take care of yourself, to make
your living. She had a love for all
of us. She was a good woman."
She said her aunt never talked

to her about the future in terms
of "if you go to college;" it was
always "when you go to college."
She encouraged me to
become a teacher because she
felt this was a field in which you
could go and get a job anywhere
you wanted to live," Thomas
said. "But she wanted me to
come back to Jackson County
and teach, and was instrumen-
tal in keeping me here. I started
at St. Paul School in Campbell-
ton, for nine or 10 years, then
transferred to Grand Ridge
for 20 years, and theh went to
Marianna High School, where
I retired in the 2003. I taught
41 years, but she taught a lot
longer than I did, and across
a lot of subjects and grades. I
think she influenced a lot of
lives in a very positive way. She
had us at church every time the
doors opened and she was very
involved with youth there, too."
Wilson's son, LeRoy Jr., said
his mother "had undying love"
that will survive the death of her
physical body, living on in all
the lives she touched.
"She'd give her last," he said.
"She saw that everything was
provided for, and she taught us
to live by the golden rule; do
unto others as you would have
others do unto you."
He said his mother passed
peacefully Monday.
"She'd been living with me
and my wife since 1999," he
said. "The day she died, she said
she was tired but not hurting
or anything. The next time I
went in there to check on her,
she had her hand folded across
her. She was at peace, she was
in no pain, she was gone to
Heaven. She had a long, lovely
life of helping people and I was
privileged to have her as my

Milton tosses no-no in return to circle


After 15 months of battling a lin-
gering and painful shoulder injury,
Chipola freshman pitcher Eron Mil-
ton finally returned to the circle as
a starting pitcher Saturday in Aiken,
And what did she do in her first col-
legiate start? Well, she threw a seven-
inning no-hitter, blanking Chatta-
hoochee Valley State in a 7-0 win.
A 2011 Marianna High School
alum, the 5-foot-10 Milton was un-
able to pitch in her senior year for
the Lady Bulldogs due to a nagging
shoulder injury which wasn't prop-
erly diagnosed until last fall when

it was determined that she suffered
from a winged scapula, a condition
that affects the shoulder blade and
limits one's range of motion.
After several months of rehab,
Milton made two appearances
in relief during the Lady Indians'
opening weekend against Lamar
State and Heartland Community
Milton struggled in her first ac-
tion allowing hitters to bat over .400
against her.
But she recovered to pitch score-
less innings of relief against Thomas
University on Feb. 4 and USC Sumter
on Feb. 17 Milton picked up a save
against Thomas University and fi-
nally got her chance to start Satur-
day against Chattahoochee Valley.

Milton hit the second batter she
faced, and then retired the next 18
consecutive Chattahoochee Valley
hitters before Brooke Head finally
reached on a Chipola error.
Kala Kirkland flied to second for
the third and final out, and Milton
had her no-hitter on just 84 pitch-
es, including six strikeouts and no
Milton said it was exciting to com-
plete feat that most pitchers dream
about, but she was perhaps even
more emotional at the start of the
game than she was at the end.
"Honestly, I was just excited to be
able to pitch," she said. "It was the
first time I'd gotten to start a game in

Stual must-win game tonight in Pen-
sacola, as they take on the Pensacola
State Lady Pirates in hopes of keeping
pace with Northwest Florida State for
the crucial third spot in the Panhandle
Conference standings.
Chipola (17-9, 5-5 in the Panhandle
Conference) is a half game back of
the Lady Raiders (6-5) for third place,
which will determine the third confer-
ence berth for the state tournament.
The Lady Raiders will finish the sea-

the Lady Indians will in all likelihood
need to beat Pensacola tonight and
Gulf Coast State at home Saturday to
force a one-game playoffto determine
the third playoff spot.
"We've got to assume that Northwest
beats TCC, so yeah, it's pretty much
must-win for us tonight," Chipola
coach David Lane said Tuesday. "Sat-

The Chipola Lady Indians contin-
ued their dominant run of play last
weekend in Aiken, S.C., reeling off
five more wins to run their winning
streak up to 11 games.
With the wins, the Lady Indians
improved to 16-1 on the season.
Chipola took the wins over USC
Sumter, Spartanburg Methodist,

and Gordon College by a combined
score of 40-3.
It was complete domination for a
Lady Indians squad that has rarely
been challenged this year, winning
11 of their 16 games by seven or
more runs.
Chipola coach Belinda Hendrix
said her team's performance in
South Carolina made her more con-
fident that the hot start is for real.
"In the beginning, I thought may-
be we just haven't played anybody,
but last weekend we played some

Doctors were unable
to find exactly what was
wrong with Milton's shoul-
der until a doctor at the
University of Alabama-Bir-
mingham diagnosed the
winged scapula.
From that point, she was
able to focus.on her rehab,
which included stretching
and strengthening exer-
cises to restore the range of
motion in her shoulder.
But Milton said it was the
not knowing what specifi-
cally was wrong with her
that made it difficult.
"It seemed like every
doctor I saw told me some-
thing different," she said.
"I had nerve tests done
and saw chiropractors and
nothing showed up and
nothing ever worked. Fi-
nally, something did work.
The stretching was the only
thing that worked."
The stretching exercises
include lying down with
her elbow being held at a
90-degree angle and being
pushed and turned down
by a trainer.
It's a routine she goes
through every day before
pitching, and Milton said
it has not only restored her
range of motion but added
strength she didn't previ-
ously possess.

ment on her pitches, and a
changeup that's deadly.

"Honestly, we haven't talked about it
much," Lane said. "They know they've
got to win. If we've got to tell you that
we need to win, then you're in trouble.

urgency in you, then you're going to
It was just last week that the Lady Indi-
ans appeared very much in the driver's
seat in the race for the postseason, with
a home game against a short-handed
Northwest team on Feb. 14.
But the Lady Raiders jumped out to a
big lead and held off a furious late rally
by Chipola to hold on for the 59-55 win.
With a victory, Chipola could've tak-
en a two game lead with two games
to play, but now the Lady Indians will
have to win two games just to avoid
"We didn't play well in that game, but
we can't change what happened," Lane
said. "That's been the frustrating part all
year. We are inconsistent as players and
inconsistent as a team. We'll have one
good half, and then one bad half. We
have a great 10 minute stretch and then
we struggle. We'll play bad for 30 min-
utes and then play great for the last 10.
The inconsistency is very frustrating."
To get back in the race, Chipola will
have to beat the only Panhandle team it
hasn't defeated this season, as the Lady
Pirates won the first match-up 85-82 on
Jan. 18 in Pensacola, and then the re-
match 71-60 on Feb. 4 in Marianna.
However, the Lady Pirates have lost
their last two games, falling to Gulf

Chipola hitters had a good time of it
as well, with Lindsey Hamlin, Mya An-
derson, and Hayley Parker all hitting
two home runs over the weekend, while
sophomore Ebony Wright hitting her
first of the season in the win over Chat-
tahoochee Valley.
Wright was an incredible 12 of 15 in
the five games to lift her season batting
average to a team best .615.
Hendrix said that the new approach of
building a team through speed and con-
tact hitters is showing great dividends
so far this season.
"One through nine, we're very athletic
this year," the coach said. "Not only can
we hit the ball, but we can also lay down
a bunt. Our No. 4 hitter Lindsey Hamlin
is on a 17-game hitting streak, but she
struggled to get a hit in one of the games
and laid down a perfect bunt and beat it
out to get on. That's our No. 4 hitter and

Coast 99-95 on the road and Northwest
99-89 at home.
"They hit a little bit of a bump," Lane
said of the Lady Pirates. "We all go
through it at some point during the sea-
son, and theirs is happening right now.
But they've had some time to regroup a
little bit, and they know their ticket's not
punched yet either. They've got to win
another game to make sure they get in,
so they're going to have some urgency
about themselves."
While most teams would prefer to
have a game of such magnitude in their
home gym, perhaps the Lady Indians
would rather it be on the road where
they're 4-1 this season against Panhan-
dle opponents.
The only away loss was to the Lady
"If you told me before the season that
we'd go either 5-1 or 4-2 on the road in
the conference, then I'm telling you that
we're in it for sure. But that just hasn't
been the case," Lane said. "For whatever
reason, we play a little better away from
home. Hopefully, we'll draw from that
play better (tonight)."
Lane reacts to Scovel's
A long time nemesis during his time as
Chipola coach, Lane said he was sorryto
see legendary Gulf Coast women's coach
Ronnie Scovel announce her retirement
at the end of this season to move into an
administrative position at the school.
"I think she saw an opportunity to
have a new position and a chance to
really enjoy her family life," the coach
said. "She certainly has nothing to prove
as a coach. She's done it all. If it wasn't
for her, the Panhandle wouldn't be what
it is today."

probably the slowest kid on the team.
"Ebony Wright is our No. 9 hitter and
she's leading the team in hitting. It just
shows how deep we are as a team this
Hendrix said that the rigorous fall
schedule that included games against
the likes of Florida, Florida State and
LSU helped lay the foundation for the
spring success that the team is having.
"We take a beating in the fall going
against those teams," she said. "You al-
ways worry about losing too much in
the fall because you don't want the girls
to get used to losing, but' now they're
used to winning. They don't anticipate
losing. That's not an option for them.
"This group really gets along well and
really pushes each other. We don't have
to push them as coaches. They push
each other."
Chipola will return to action today
for a road doubleheader against Enter-
prise State and will finish the week in
Panama City at Frank Brown Park for
seven games this weekend.

Woods still a target

The Associated Press

MARANA, Ariz. Tiger
Woods must be mellowing
with age.
There was a time when
a comment from his op-
ponent in the Match Play
Championship, even
tongue-in-cheek, would
be an extra bit of moti-
vation that Woods didn't
need. Most famous at this
event was in 2006, when
Stephen Ames was asked
about playing Woods and
said that anything could
happen, adding with a big
smile, "Especially where
he's hitting it."
Woods beat him 9 and 8,
the most lopsided score in
tournament history.-
But that was whenWoods
was No. 1 in the world. He
is the No. 19 seed this week
at Dove Mountain.
That was when Woods
was winning two majors
a year. Now he hasn't won
a tour event in more than
two years.
So when Gonzalo Fer-
nandez-Castano, who
faces Woods in the open-
ing round Wednesday, said
that his opponent is "beat-
able," Woods didn't seem
the least bit bothered.
"I feel exactly the same
way as he does," Woods
said. "I feel he's beatable,
too." i
Then again, that goes for
all 64 players in the field for
the first World Golf Cham-
pionship of the year. The
difference in talent at this
level of golf is miniscule.
Over 18 holes of match
play, it's even smaller.
The best example might
be Luke Donald, the de-
fending champion and No.

Tiger Woods walks to the driving range before playing a practice round at the Match Play
Championship golf tournament, Tuesday in Marana, Ariz.

1 player in the world. For
his opening round, he gets
to play Ernie Els, a three-
time major champion and
seven-time winner of the
World Match Play Cham-
pionship at Wentworth,
where each match is con-
tested over 36 holes.
Not since the inaugural
Match Play Championship
in 1999 has No. 1 against
No. 64 featured such big
stars, when Woods beat
Nick Faldo.
Of course, there's a rea-
son Els comes in as the No.
64 seed.
The Big Easy hasn't won
since the South African
Open at the end of 2010,
and he only got into this
tour-nament because Phil
Mickelson is taking a fami-
ly vacation (Paul Casey lat-
er withdrew with injury). If
his results don't improve

quickly, he might be out
of the Masters for the first
time in nearly 20 years.
Donald has had a slow
start to the year. He tied
for 48th in the Abu Dhabi
Championship, and closed
with a 78 at Riviera last
week to tie for 56th, the
first time in more than two
years that he didn't earn
rank-ing points despite
making the cut.
Even so, he's coming off
a year in which he won
money titles on the PGA
Tour and European Tour,
and won a career-high four
tournaments, starting with
the Match Play Champion-
ship. Donald was so domi-
nant at Dove Mountain last
year that he never played
the 18th hole all week in
"He had an unbelievable
year last year, and becom-

ing world No. 1. So he's
got a lot going for him,"
Els said. "It's 18 holes, you
know? It's not like I'm the
worst match-play player
in the world, either. I think
I know what I need to do.
You've got to keep the ball
in play. You've got to keep
it in play on every single
hole, because he's going to
be in every hole.
"It's basically who can
make 'the most putts and
make the most birdies," he
said. "So we'll take it from

Molina eyes new

role with Rays

The Associated Press

career backup with two
World Series rings, Jose
Molina is excited about
having an opportunity
to become an everyday
catcher with the Tampa
Bay Rays.
At least as regular as you
reasonably can expect at
age 36.
The brother of a couple
of other two-time World
Series winners, Bengie
and Yadier Molina, signed
with the Rays this offsea-
son. Manager Joe Maddon
envisions a healthy "J-Mo"
starting somewhere be-
tween 80 and 90 games as
the Ray chase their fourth
playoff berth in five years.
Molina says he prepar-

ing as if he's going to play
162, even though he's
never appeared in more
than 100 during parts of
12 seasons with the Cubs,
Angels, Yankees and Blue
"I'm ready to catch 162
every year, not just this
year. Every year. Because
you never know. If the
starting catcher gets hurt,
you have to come in and
be ready to do your job,"
Molina said Tuesday, the
first day of spring training
for Tampa Bay's pitchers
and catchers.
Known more for his de-
fensive skills than his of-
fense, Molina started 44
games as a backup to To-
ronto rookie J.P Arencibia
while batting a career-best
.281 with three homers.

AnJnie's Mailbox

Dear Annie: My husband and I were
both widowed before meeting. We are
now 70 and have been happily married
for six years. We both have grown chil-
dren. Everything is good in our blended
family except for my son's wife. "Stacy"
has been a thorn in my side from the day
they married 20 years ago. My former
husband and I always managed tokeep
her quick temper under control. But
since he died and I remarried, she's gone
completely overboard. She has stopped
my son from having any contact with our
family, including his brothers and me.
Stacy has been unable to hold down a job
because she can't get along with others.
She's judgmental, critical and short-tem-
pered. She is often jealous and has many
unresolved issues from her childhood.
She is keeping us away from her family,
and none of us has seen my grandsons in
three years. She says we aren't trustwor-
thy, but that isn't true. We are not deceit-
ful in any way, and our word is good.
The rest of the family continues to get
together without my son and daughter-
in-law, but we miss them very much. Our

PISCES (Feb. 20-March
20) Although it will be
easy for you to get along
with most people, you can
still expect cross words to
come out of your mouth
if a nasty person ticks you
ARIES (March 21-April 19)
If you expect friends or
family to do things for you
that you can easily do for
yourself, you're going to be
severely disappointed.
TAURUS (April 20-May
20) Even if you're sure
of yourself, it isn't smart to
forcibly impose your be-
liefs on others.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20)
Although you may be
able to see some changes
that would clearly benefit
your family, your kinfolk
may not be prepared to
make them.
CANCER (June 21-July 22)
Even if another has bet-
ter ideas, you may not be
easily convinced.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)
-Your conclusions regard-
ing how others should be
managing their affairs will
be right on the money.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
Avoid inclinations to
treat simple situations in a
heavy-handed manner.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-0ct. 23)-
Attend to tasks that require
know-how and concentra-
tion as early in the day as
Possible, while you're fresh
and alert.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov.
22) Socializing and be-
ing with friends will be
fun, provided the time
spent with them is of short
Dec. 21) Because your
temper might have a short
fuse right now, you could
bring woe to those who
cross you and ,make you
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan.
19) Have the courage of
your convictions, because
if you don't, a know-it-all
might try to intimidate you
by discounting your ideas
in front of others.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb.
19) Instead of apply-
ing incoming funds to
new endeavors or mer-
chandise that you've had
your eye on, it would be a
whole lot smarter to pay
off some of your old debts

blended family is kind and loving toward
one another. But those two grandsons
don't know us, and it looks like that
won't change anytime soon. My son is
overwhelmed with Stacy's control issues,
so he just goes along with whatever she
wants. Cards, letters, phone calls and
emails go unanswered. Do you have any
Dear Grandma: We are so sorry that your
son and his wife have chosen to exclude
themselves from a loving family. Without
your son's insistence, it is unlikely Stacy
will come around. We understand that he
is reluctant to rock the boat and possibly
damage his marriage, but he shouldn't
be isolated from his family in order to
placate his wife. It is a form of emotional
abuse. Please continue to send cards,
letters and e-mails without expect-
ing replies. You never know what gets
through. Depending on your state, you
also could sue for visitation privileges if
you so choose. A lawyer with expertise in
grandparents' rights can help you.

With respect to this column, we should make that: North .2-22-12
"Learn from yesterday, reprise today, use tomorrow. The A K 2
important thing is not to stop asking for a stopper."
In yesterday's column, the opener cue-bid the inter- 94
venor's suit on the second round of the auction, an- 652
nouncing game-forcing values and asking responder K Q J 95
to bid no-trump with a stopper in the opponent's suit. West East
Today, the responder makes an identIcal inquiry. 4 10 8 6 5 3 4 J 94
South opens one diamond, North responds two clubs, Y 8 5 2 V A K Q J 10
East overcalls two hearts, and South rebids three dia- # J K 9 7
monds. North has game-going values and would like to 4 8 6 3 2 4 74
get into three no-trump, but does not have a heart stop-South
per, so cannot bid no-trump himself. He cue-bids three
hearts to transmit that exact message. South does not Q '
have a heart stopper either, so continues with four dia- 7 6 3
monds. (Yes, he might have bid four clubs.) North raises A Q 10 8 4 3
to five diamonds. 4 A 10
East takes two heart tricks, then shifts to a club. How D r
should declarer continue? Dealer South
South must not lose a trump trick. The best play is Vulnerable: Both
low to the queen on the first round. This wins when South West North East
East has king-doubleton or West has a singleton jack. 1 # Pass 24 2 V
Those two layouts are more likely than East's having 3 Pass 3 V Pass
king-jack-third. 4 Pass 5 All pass
Declarer wins trick three on the board, plays a dia-
mond to his queen, ruffs his last heart, leads a diamond Opening lead: 2
to his 10, cashes the diamond ace, and claims. Openng lead: 9

NFL concussion fallout raises red flags in NASCAR

The Associated Press

- If Michael Waltrip were
to count up all the con-
cussions he has sustained
over a NASCAR career that
stretches back nearly 30
years, he'd certainly hit
10 and probably keep
Safety measures since
Dale Earnhardt's death in
2001 have gone a long way
toward preventing head
injuries, and NASCAR of-
ficials have taken steps
to improve the way they
identify and treat concus-
sions. But Waltrip knows
that won't undo all those
hits he took in the 1980s
and '90s.
"I whacked my head a
lot," Waltrip said. "If you
think about this, I showed
up in'85, when it was rela-
tively 'safe.' We thought we
had it figured out. I raced
all the way through 2001
when people were getting
killed. And all through that
time, I was hitting my head
and knocking myself out
and getting concussions
and going to the hospital.
And I don't know what that
means to me in 10 years.
But I know it's a concern."
The 48-year-old Waltrip
gets uneasy when he hears
stories about NFL players
and other athletes who
are having serious neuro-
logical problems after they
retire, issues that a grow-
ing amount of research
indicates may have been
caused by repetitive brain
injuries they sustained
during their playing days.
Could that happen to
him, too?
"I would be the perfect
case study to see what's
going to happen," Waltrip
said. "Because I can go
back and look at the races
and count up times I was
knocked unconscious
that I can't count on both

Michael Waltrip (left) holds his head as he walks to ah ambulance after flipping his Chevrolet during the NASCAR NAPA 300 at
the Daytona International Speedway in Daytona Beach, Fla in 2000.

Five-time NASCAR
champion Jimmie Johnson
says he has had two con-
cussions racing stock cars,
and probably many more
racing dirt bikes when he
was younger.
"We're not immune to
concussions," Johnson
said. "And certainly af-
ter severe concussions
or being concussed sev-
eral times, the numbers
change. We know that. The
dynamic is there. I think
we've reduced the oppor-
tunity for it to happen, but
ultimately, it can happen. I
just think the odds are a lot
better today than they've
ever been."
Earnhardt's death in the
2001 Daytona 500-which
came after drivers Kenny
Irwin, Adam Petty and
Tony Roper all were killed
from similar head injuries
- forced NASCAR to get
serious about safety.
Today, drivers must wear
a head and neck restraint,
while impact-absorbing

SAFER barriers have been
installed on racetrackwalls
and NASCAR completely
redesigned race cars to
reduce the risk of injury.
Racing seats used to look
a lot like passenger car
seats; now they look more
like something out of a
spaceship, with foam-pad-
ded supports oneach side
of the helmet that barely
allows a driver's head to
move during a crash.
It's working. Going into
Sunday's Daytona 500,
there hasn't bedn a death
in NASCAR's top three
national series since
"If I'm Kasey Kahne or
Kyle Busch, I don't have
those concerns anymore,"
Waltrip said. "We've got the
cars and the tracks, we've
got it all fixed. You can still
get hurt. You're, running
200 miles an hour. But the
chances of getting hurt
are slimmer. The chances
of hitting your head and
hurting it are really slim."

"I would be the perfect case study. Ican go back and
look at the races and count up times Ias knocked
unconscious tlt can't count on both hands"
Michael Waltrp,
NASCAR driver

NASCAR officials say
they've identified 29 con-
cussiops in their top three
series since 2004 and
only 11 of those happened
in the past five seasons.
."Not huge numbers,
when you see it," said
Steve O'Donnell, NAS-
CAR's senior vice presi-
dent of racing operations.
"But with each of those,
each one's different, we've
had to assess each one dif-
ferently. Knock on wood,
we haven't had as many to
have to deal with."
And while there have
been some drivers who
experienced long-term ef-
fects from traumatic head
injuries over the years
- including Bobby Al-

lison, Ernie Irvan, Jerry
Nadeau and Steve Park -
O'Donnell says -NASCAR
doesn't see any evidence
of widespread health is-
sues related to multiple
head injuries, as the NFL
and other sports are.
In response to reports of
football players, hockey
players and other athletes
having serious neurologi-
cal issues in retirement,
researchers at the Boston-
based Sports Legacy In-
stitute have studied brain
tissue of deceased former
athletes. They've found
evidence of a degenera-
tive brain disease known
as Chronic Traumatic En-
cephalopathy that has
been linked to repetitive

brain injuries.
O'Donnell said NASCAR
officials have noticed.
"Absolutely," O'Donnell
said. "It's something we
pay attention to on any as-
pect of other sports, what
they're doing. Can we learn
from it? Can we implement
some of these things?We're
open to working with any
other sport as well."
For now, veteran driver
Jeff Burton is trying to
gather as much informa-
tion as he can about the
long-term effects of con-
cussions. Burton's father-
in-law is a physician and
has attended sports medi-
cine conferences on his
"I think anybody that
has any sense at all has to
understand that it doesn't
matter if you're playing
football or hockey or rac-
ing a car, head injuries can
have bad ramifications
later in life," Burton said.
"It appears to be the case.
I think we are exposed to
less of it. But at the same
time, when we do have
them, they can be big
The 44-year-old Burton
started racing in NASCAR's
top division in 1993, well
before the post-Earnhardt
safety advances.
"I can tell you that in ret-
rospect, there's been many
times that I've had concus-
sions," Burton said.
"And the definition of
concussion is a very wide-
ly used term, and how you
actually define a concus-
sion has changed over
the years. But there's no
question that with hitting
concrete, not having (to-
day's safety equipment),
there's no question peo-
ple had concussions. No
Waltrip said he blacked
ourtafter an accident
in practice at Las Vegas
in 1998, but kept it to
