on charges of grand theft from anoth-
auto and dealing in stolen., er person in
property. Jones town, do-
Freddie Lee Jones, 64, of ing so with-
5217 11th Ave., is accused out their knowledge or

According to the com-
plaint filed against Jones,
he called Mike's Auto Sales
in Donalsonville, Ga., and
told someone there to
pick up a 1997 Plymouth
down the street from his
home, and a 1989 Buick
from a residence on Ninth

The call about the Plym-
outh was made in late
March of this year. The call
about the Buick was made
in August 2011.
According to the com-
plaint, he produced what
appeared to be bills of
sale for each vehicle,

authorities said, and indi-
cated there were no liens
on the cars.
He was paid $227 for the
Plymouth and $319 for the
Buick, officials reported.
The cars had been pur-
chased for scrap.
The alleged victims -
Waverly Cardella Jones and

Donna Nichols told au-
thorities they did not give
the vehicles to Jones or au-
thorize anyone to remove
them from their property.
Jones was booked into
the Jackson County jail this
week and has since bond-
ed out to await further ac-
tion in his case.

CHS Junior Beta Club raising money for muscular dystrophy


The Cottondale High
School Junior Beta Club
has started fundraising for
the "Make a Muscle, Make
a Difference" campaign,
which raises money for
muscular dystrophy.
"Beta Club is all about
helping the less fortunate in
the community," said Holly
Tyler, CHS Junior Beta Club
Muscular dystrophy
progressively weakens a
person's' muscles, making
movement increasingly dif-
ficult. A number of different
diseases are categorized
as muscular dystrophy,

each with their own rate of
progression and severity.
This is the third year the
CHS Junior Beta has raised
funds for this campaign.
Last year, the club raised
about $400, which made
possible diagnostic work at
a Muscular Dystrophy As-
sociation clinic.
This year, the students
want to raise $800, which
will help a child with mus-
cular'dystrophy attend a
special summer camp.
"For the kids who have
muscular dystrophy, they
don't have many opportu-
nities to get out and about,"
said Kai Owens, the club's
sponsor and a CHS reading

"Beta Club is all about helping the less fortunate in

the community."

Each club member is
asked to raise at least $30.
With 30 members, they just
may go beyond .their $800
Members will be speaking
to friends, family, churches
and other organizations for
donations. A canister will be
set up in the CHS office for
any community members
who want to donate. The
students also will hold a car
wash May 5, from 10 a.m. to
3 p.m. at Jay's Dixie Dandy,
located at 1771 Georgia St.

CHS Junior Beta Club president
in Alford.
"Beta Club is a club
that doesn't just help our
school," Tyler said. "It goes
further than that. It helps
the community as a whole.

Gov. Scott


local man to

state board

Florida Gov. Rick Scott has chosen a local
man, John Alter, to serve on the governing
board of the Northwest FloridaWater Man-
agement District.
Although the Florida Senate must con-
firm the appointment during the next ses-
sion in March 2013, Alter's
new duty commences today
and will continue -uninter-
S rupted for a three-year term
Sif the Senate gives a nod.
The appointment was
announced Wednesday in
Alter a press release from the
.-. .-governor's office:- Alter will
represent the Apalachicola-Chipola-Lower
Chattahoochee River Basin in his seat on
the board.
Alter was nominated for the post by the
Florida Forestry Association. As part of
the selection process, Alter was first inter-
viewed by Department of Environmental
Protection Secretary HerschelVinyard.
After the secretary moved his name for-
ward, he met with Gov. Scott in late March.
Alter said they had a 15-20 minute conver-
sation. After a bref chat about their com-
mon Navy backgrounds, they talked about
Alter's general views on statewide, regional
and national water management issues.
S"He's very engaging personality, and he
just asked me about my views on water,"
Alter said. He added that he and Scott share
a desire to see the long-standing Florida-
Alabama-Georgia water wars resolved.
Alter has been involved for years in that is-
sue over water use rights, serving for some
time as one of the designated stakeholder
in those discussions.
While water district staff members gather
facts and data about the area's water re-
sources, the governing board is charged
with seeing to policy and procedures. They
use the information brought forward by
staff, but Alter said he also expects to make
some "field trips," visiting sitesyto get his
own impressions and see some things for

Chipley nurse charged for practicing without a license


A Chipley woman who
once worked as a nurse
at Jackson Hospital was
charged with practicing
that profession without a
license to do so back in the
mid-2000s, and local au-
thorities picked her up on
the old warrant this week.

Lt. Francis Davis, of the
Police De-

said Stacy
Lea 'Grau-
berger was
pulled over
Grauberger for speeding
on Caverns
Road this week, and the
warrant surfaced in a stan-

dard background check.
According to the com-
plaint against Grauberger,
she initially started work-
ing at Jackson Hospital
under a temporary permit
from the Board of Nursing.
The temporary per-
mit expired in Septem-
ber 2005, but Grauberger
continued working at the
hospital and told adminis-

trators she had her license
"but would never produce
them," according to the
When a hospital official
discovered in February
2006 that the document
had never been submitted
and Grauberger had been
practicing without a prop-
er license for five months,
Grauberger was fired and a

state Department of Health
investigation began.
The state discovered that
in 2004, Grauberger had
been charged in Arkansas
with possession of a con-
trolled substance.
According to records
from Sharp County in
that state, Grauberger was
found guilty of the charge,
paid a fine and completed

a rehabilitation program
as part of her sentence.
On completion of the
investigation, Grauberger
was charged here with the
practice of nursing without
a license, and a warrant for
her arrest was then issued.
Listed as a resident of
Chipley, she remained at
large until the traffic stop
this week.

Autism Awareness Month

Special to the Floridan

April is Autism Awareness
month and the Centers for
Disease Control and Pre-
vention recently released
the most current statistics
regarding the prevalence
,of autism.
The rate of autism has
increased to an average of
1 in 88 children from the
previous figure of 1 in 110.
With increasing numbers
of children being diag-
nosed with Autism Spec-
trum Disorders, and with
few resources available to
families in our rural area of
Florida, some local fami-
lies are stepping up to the

tism Support Group is now
operating under the um-
brella of a newly formed
nonprofit Chipola Area

Inc. and will be known
as The Chipola Area Au-

Support Group.
The support group was
established in May 2010
by Syntha Alvarez, mother
of two children on the au-
tism spectrum, with the
purpose of providing sup-
port for all those affected
by autism, including, par-

community members and

Alvarez, Everitt, and Shel-
ton have teamed up with
another autism mom, Sue
Armstrong, as directors of
the nonprofit center.
"We feel that to be truly
effective in improving the
outcomes for our local
children, teens and adults
affected by autism, we
must work together col-
laboratively as a team,"
Shelton said.
Organizers plan to open
the doors of the nonprofit
resource center in Mari-
anna in the near future.
Through Autism Speaks,
the center has applied for
three community grants:
one would bring autism
training to local educa-
tors, one would provide
after-school programs for
autistic students, and one
would provide community
based training for high

Enterprise Florida

accused of secrecy

The Associated Press

public interest group that
focuses on government
ethics accused Florida's
public-private economic
development partner-
ship of conflicts of inter-
est Wednesday and said
needless secrecy also
keeps taxpayers from
knowing how the partner-
ship spends millions of
their dollars.
The group is called In-
tegrity Florida and the
target of its "Corruption
Risk Report" is Enterprise
Florida. The partnership
offers state financial in-
centives for companies
to move to, or expand in
Florida if they promise to
create jobs.
"We just. want to follow
the money," said Integrity
Florida executive director
Dan Krassner. "'We just
want to know when the
jobs are going to be here."
Enterprise Florida
President Gray Swoope
disputed the report's
findings and accused
Krassner of "releasing
half-truths to inflame
emotions" and "dissemi-
nating misinformation
and misrepresentations."
The report noted three
companies on the part-
nership's board of direc-
tors have received in-
centives from Enterprise
Florida: Publix Super
Markets Inc., Embraer
Aircraft Holding Inc., and
Lockheed Martin.
Enterprise Florida
spokesman Stuart Doyle
denied that those and
other deals cited in the re-
port constituted conflicts
of interest. Swoope's state-
ment said board mem-

bers have no input on in-
dividual projects and that
final approval must come
from the Department of
Economic Opportunity,
not Enterprise Florida.
A fourth board member,
the GrayRobinson law
firm, handled Enterprise
Florida's legislative lob-
bying last year while the
Ernst & Young accounting
firm, which Enterprise
Florida has hired to as-
sess its performance, also
received an incentive.
Swoope said state law al-
lows such contracts al-
though benefitting board
members must abstain
and declare the nature of
their interest.
Gov. Rick Scott, who
chairs Enterprise Florida,
said he's open to more
transparency. But he said
it must be balanced with
confidentiality to ensure
Florida isn't put at a dis-
advantage in competing
for new businesses.
"We always have to re-

said. "As soon as you can

Marco Rubio elevating profile

amid Romney VP speculation

The Associated Press

Marco Rubio outlined his
vision Wednesday of a
more muscular American
foreign policy, the latest
salvo in his effort eto el-
evate his profile as Repub-
lican presidential candi-
date Mitt Romney begins
his search for a running
The Florida Republican's
half-hour speech at the
centrist Brookings Institu-
tion came four weeks after
he endorsed Romney and
two days after campaign-
ing with him. He also re-
cently has spoken of a new
immigration proposal that
breaks ranks with some in
his own party.
Both in Washington and
around the country, th'e
40-year-old Cuban-Ameri-
can is pushing himself for-
ward as a fresh conserva-
tive. He has remained coy
about whether he would
join Romney's ticket this
November, but his care-
fil criticism of President
Barack Obama's leader-
ship as well as the isola-
tionist tendencies among
some Republicans rein-
forced the image he has
projected of himself as a
tough conservative but
one moderate enough for
national election.
"Global problems do re-
quire international coali-
tions. On that point this
administration is correct,"
Rubio told a crowd of al-
most 200 academics, poli-
cymakers and diplomats.
"But effective internation-
al coalitions don't form
themselves. They need to
be instigated and led, and
more often than not, they
can only be instigated
and led by us. And that is
what this administration
doesn't understand."
Introduced by Sen. Joe
Lieberman, the Demo-
cratic vice presidential
candidate in 2000, Rubio
didn't address whether
he's seeking the same of-
fice. The freshman law-
maker has frequently been
mentioned as a potential
choice for Romney and a
Republican Party strug-
gling to improve its stand-
ing with Hispanic voters. A
recent Pew Research Cen-
ter survey showed Obama
with a commanding 67
percent to 27 percent ad-
vantage over Romney with
Rubio provided a hawk-
ish yet sober prescription
for American leadership
in conflicts from the Mid-
die East and Asia to Latin
America. He went beyond

Institution on Wednesday in Washington.

general Republican oppo-
sition to many of Obama's
policies and avoided the
outlandish claims that
peppered Republican
presidential primary de-
bates last year.
He lamented "liberal
Democrats and conser-
vative Republicans" who.
championed U.S. with-
drawal from Afghanistan
and opposed involvement
in Libya, and said Obama
should have done even
more to advance the cause
of the rebels who toppled
Moammar Gadhafi.
Yet he voiced support
for Obama's statements
against a nuclear-armed
Iran and praised President
GeorgeW. Bush's aid efforts
in Africa and President Bill
Clinton's decision to inter-
vene in Kosovo without a
U.N. mandate. And he re-
counted cooperating with
Democratic senators to
raise pressure on human
rights abusers and back-
sliding democracies from
Syria to Nicaragua, stand-
ing up to the isolationist
camps in both.parties.
"Today, in the U.S. Sen-
ate, on foreign policy, if
you go far enough to the
right, you wind up on the
left," Rubio said, position-
ing himself in the moder-
ate center.
It's a message that could
strengthen his vice presi-
dential appeal. After a
bruising primary cam-
paign that saw Romney
forced into addressing di-
visive social policy ques-
tions and stress his emerg-
ing conservative views
over his record as a mod-
erate Massachusetts gov-
ernor, he must now pivot
back to the center for the
general election.
A married father of four
who defeated a popular

ex-governor to become
senator, Rubio's good
looks, Latino heritage and
conservatism give him
obvious star power in the
Republican Party. After
a first year spent mainly
hunkering down on sena-
torial work and avoiding
the limelight, like Hillary
Rodham Clinton a dozen
years ago, he now appears
to be positioning himself
as a party leader.
Even if he stays out of
this presidential race
and Romney loses, .Ru-
bio would presumably
be among the GOP front-
runners for 2016. He'd be
45 and a six-year veteran
of the Senate by then, with
ample time to shape his
,public persona. And the
Hispanic share of the vote
will only increase in the.
Rubio's immigrant fam-
ily story received scrutiny
with his claim that his
parents, like hundreds
of thousands of Cuban-
Americans in Florida, left
the island after Castro's
1959 revolution. But un-
like many exiles, Rubio's
parents had returned to
Cuba briefly in the early
1960s but came back to
the U.S. to stay. A new is-
sue emerged this week.
Federal records show an
immigration judge or-
dered Rubio's grandfather
deported to Cuba in 1962.
Pedro Victor Garcia even-
tually was allowed to stay
in the U.S. when the Cu-
ban Adjustment Act was
passed in 1966. His status
during the four interven-
ing years remains unclear.
Riubio's efforts to find
compromise on- immigra-

migrants to remain in the

The measure would

migrants who came to the
U.S. with their parents to

vision. But he stressed
greater American engage-

rejection of the argument

the world is our business,"
Rubio said.' "There is no

baton to, even if it were
wise to do so. On the most

challenges of our time,

Speaker: House to vote Friday on student loans

The Associated Press

escalating election-year
clash, the House will vote
Friday on a $5.9 billion Re-
publican bill preventing
interest rates on federal
student loans from dou-
bling this summer, paid
for by cutting money from
President Barack Obama's
health care overhaul law.
Wednesday's abrupt an-
nouncement by House
Speaker John Boehner, R-
Ohio, came with Obama
and Democrats clamoring
daily for congressional ac-
tion to prevent the current
3.4 percent interest rate
on subsidized Stafford
student loans from auto-
matically increasing to 6.8
percent on July 1.
That increase, set by law
unless Congress blocks it,
would affect 7.4 million
students at a time when
both parties are compet-
ing for the votes of young
adults and their parents
who must foot college

tuitions. Each is also try-
ing to show voters that it
knows best how to shield
people from pain inflicted
by the weak economy.
With Obama engaged
in a series of campaign-
style speeches in recent
days about the need to
block the interest rate
boost, Republicans came
under even greater pres-
sure when Mitt Romney,
the GOP's presumptive
presidential nominee, an-
nounced Monday that he,
too, favored the move.
Also taking the offensive
were Senate Democrats,
who introduced legisla-
tion Tuesday blocking the
increase for a year.
Senate Republicans said
they backed the idea of
freezing the interest rate
but opposed a tax on some
private corporations that
Senate Democrats would
use to pay for it. Until
Boehner's announcement
of Friday's vote, Republi-
cans had nothing tangible
they could vote for to denm-

onstrate their support.
At a hurriedly called
news conference, Boehner
told reporters that Obama
has been "trying to invent
a fight where there wasn't
and never has been one"
and said, "We can and will
fix the problem without a
bunch of campaign-style
He added, "What Wash-
ington shouldn't be doing
is exploiting the challeng-
es that young Americans
face for political gpin."
House Republicans
would pay for their one-
year measure from a
$17 billion prevention
and public health fund
Obama's law created for
immunization campaigns,
research, screenings and
wellness education. Re-
publicans have dubbed it
a "slush fund" and sought
to cut it to finance a vari-
ety of projects that they

short of saying she would
oppose the GOP bill on
"House Democrats will
continue to work to ensure
that seven million students
and their families do not

rate hike," she said.
Senate Democrats' legis-
lation would keep student

percent for another year.
It would he paid for by in-

Stuart Chaifetz looks at his son Akian Chaifetz, 10, as he sits on
top of a ladder at their home in Cherry Hill, N.J., on Wednesday.
Chaifetz was told that his son Akian was acting violently at his
New Jersey school so he decided to investigate. Chaifetz sent
his boy to school wearing a hidden audio recorder.

Parents wire kids

to prove teachers'

verbal abuse

The Associated Press

Teachers hurled insults like
"bastard," "tard," "damn
dumb" and "a hippo in a
ballerina suit." A bus driv-
er threatened to slap one
child, while a bus monitor
told another, "Shut up, you
little dog."
They were all special
needs students, and their
parents all learned about
the verbal abuse the same
way by planting audio
recorders on them before
sending them off to school.
In cases around the coun-
try, suspicious parents have
been taking advantage of
convenient, inexpensive
technology to tell them
what children, because of
their disabilities, are not
able to express on their
own. It's a practice that can
help expose abuses, but it
comes with some dangers.
This week, a father in
Cherry Hill, N.J., posted on
You'lube clips of secretly
recorded audio that caught
one adull calling his autistic
10-year-old son "a bastard."
In less than three days,
video got 1.2 million views,
raising the prominence of
the small movement. There
have been at least nine sim-
ilar cases across the U.S.
since 2003.
"If a parent has any reason
at all to suggest a child is be-
ing abused or mistreated, I
strongly recommend that
they do the same thing,"
said Wendy Fournier, presi-
dent of the National Autism
lutl George Giuliani, ex-
ecutive director of the Na-
tional Association of Spe-
cial Education Teachers

and director of special edu-
cation at Hofstra University
in Hempstead, N.Y., says
that while the documented
mistreatment of children
has been disturbing, secret
recordings are a bad idea.
They could, he said, vio-
late the privacy rights of
other children.
"We have to be careful
that we're not sending our
children in wired without
knowing the legal issues,"
Giuliani said.
Stuart Chaifetz, the Cher-
ry Hill father, said he be-
gan getting reports earlier
in the school year that his
10-year-old son, Akian, was
being violent.
Hitting teachers and
throwing chairs were out
of character for the boy,
who is in a class with four
other autistic children and
speaks but has serious dif-
ficulty expressing himself.
Chaifetz said he talked to
school officials and had his
son meet with a behavior-
ist. There was no explana-
tion for the way Akian was
"1 just knew I had to tind
out what was happening
there," he said. "My only
option was to put a record-
er there. 1 needed to hear
what a normal day was like
in there."

sulted and crying at one
He shared the audio with
school district officials. The

statement that "the indi-
viduals who are heard on

Burger King makes cage-free eggs, pork promise

The Associated Press

In a boost to animal wel-

livestock out of cramped
cages, Burger King will be
the first major U.S.' fast-
food chain to give all of its
chickens and pigs some
room to roam.
On Wednesday, the

Federal judge hears details of

BP Gulf oil spill settlement

The Associated Press

eral judge in New Orleans
said Wednesday he is lean-
ing in favor of granting
preliminary approval to
a proposed class-action
settlement that would re-
solve billions of dollars in
claims against BP over the
2010 oil spill in the Gulf of
Mexico. The development
comes despite objections
from a BP contractor on
the doomed well project,
the Mississippi attorney
general and others.
After hearing BP and a
team of plaintiffs' attor-
neys outline the proposed
deal, U.S. District Judge
Carl Barbier said he plans
to rule within a week. Bar-
bier would hold a "fairness
hearing" later this year,
possibly in November, be-
fore deciding whether to
give his final approval.

The proposed agreement
is intended to resolve more
than 100,000 claims by
people and businesses who
blame economic losses on
the nation's worst offshore
oil spill.
"This has been a very im-
pressive effort on the part
of counsel ... in terms of
getting to where you all are
today," Barbier said, noting
that litigation over the Exx-
on Valdez spill took rough-
ly 20 years to resolve. "I did
not intend for this case to
go on for 20 years, not with
me in charge of it."
London-based BP PLC
estimates it would pay
about $7.8 billion to re-
solve these claims, but the
settlement wouldn't be
capped and likely would
be one of the largest class-
action settlements ever.
Barbier stressed that
his preliminary approval
would only mark a "start-

ing point," with objections
to the deal to be considered
in coming months. The
proposal was announced
March 2 and is spelled out
in hundreds of pages of
documents filed last week.
Objections already have
begun trickling in. In a
court filing earlierWednes-
day, a group of commer-
cial fishermen and in-
dustry groups said it sees
"significant flaws" in the
settlement and claimed it
wouldn't protect most fish-
ermen against future risks
to fisheries.

sissippi Attorney General

filing he objects to the

Locke out-duels Herbert to lift Pirates to title game

The Sneads Pirates overcame a mon-
ster pitching performance by Vernon's
Shaun Herbert on Tuesday night to top
the Yellowjackets 2-0 in the District 2-1A
tournament semifinals in Altha.
With the win, the Pirates advanced
to tonight's district title game against
the Wewahitchka Gators, who defeated
Ponce De Leon on Tuesday to get to the
championship round.
John Locke pitched a four-hit shutout
for the Pirates to get the victory, out-du-
eling Herbert, who gave up just one hit
and struck out 14 Sneads batters on the
The Pirates got two runs in the first in-
ning after Locke was hit by a pitch and
scored on a ground ball by Brandon

Moats tried to score all the way from
first, but was thrown out at home on the
play, leaving Sneads with a 2-0 advantage
through one.
After that, Herbert shut the Pirates

down the rest of the way.
Fortunately for Sneads, Locke was also
up to the task, going seven innings on
just 84 pitches and walking no one.
"John just kept us in the game," Pirates

coach Mark Guerra said. "He threw out-
standing. All four hits were in different
innings,' so they weren't able to bunch
anything together, and they had no one
on base to move around when they got
the hits.
"We made a lot of plays defensively and
a couple of good catches, but they didn't
hit the ball that hard."
But the Sneads coach was glowing in
his praise of the opposing pitcher, who
kept the Pirates in check after a shaky
first inning.
"I thought Shaun Herbert threw
outstanding," he said. "He threw a gem
of a game. I don't want to take anything
away from our guys, but he threw a heck
of a game. I don't think they could've
asked for more from him. Fortunately

at SHS, officially signing a schol-
arship offer to play for the Gulf
Coast State Commodores.

Pirates excelled in her junior and
senior seasons, helping lead SHS
to the 2A regional finals in 2010,
and then to the 1A final four in
She'll now look to have similar
success for Commodores coach
Kyle Peck.
"I'm really excited about it,"
Jackson said Wednesday. "It's
close to home, it's by the beach,
and I'm excited to be able to expe-
rience something new. It's a high
level of volleyball, I get to meet
new people, the coach is nice, it's
a really exciting experience."
After emerging as a star her in
junior season, Jackson went to
an even higher level as a senior,
leading the Lady Pirates with 346
kills, 204 service points, 96 aces
and 29 blocks. She was also tied
for the team lead with 87 digs.
"The great thing about Jordan is
that she's just a very well-round-
ed player," Roberts said. "I look
for her to play outside, but she
can do either. She's very versatile,
and she's also a great passer and
defender. She'll be able to do alot
of great things for (Peck). She's a
very talented player. She loves to
'play and loves to compete.

excited for her. I told her she's

that if she decides she wants to,
she'll have an opportunity to
keep playing after finishing at
Gulf Coast."
Jackson said it wasn't that long
ago that she was unsure whether
she wanted to play college vol-
leyball at all, but now thinks
continuing her career after Gulf
CoaSt is a real possibility.
"I've always been sort of wishy-
washy about (playing in college),"
she said. "I didn't know if I wanted
to do it, but I realized that it was

an opportunity I shouldn't give
up. And if the opportunity was
available (to play at a four-year
school after Gulf Coast), I would
definitely take that opportunity.
It's free school and it's something
I really enjoy doing."
However, she said that she isn't
taking anything for granted at
this point.
"I know there will be a lot of
other girls (at Gulf Coast) with
a lot of skills, -so I really have to
fight for my position," Jackson

Tigers take on Jaguars

with playoffs at stake

The Malone Tigers (19-6)
will take the field tonight with
a spot in the 1A state playoffs
on the line, as they play host to
the Central Jaguars (9-7) in the
semifinals of the District 1-1A
tournament at 6 p.m.
Malone won the first two
meetings between the teams,
winning 3-2 at home Feb. 29 and
2-0 on March 30 in Milton.
Both were close games, and
Tigers coach Max Harkrider said
he expected nothing less in the
third meeting.
"They were real good games.
We just had a couple of key hits
at key moments," the coach said.
"The bottom line is we pitched
it well, played good defense and
had some timely hitting. That
will be the key again. They'll
have their best guy going, so we
have to be ready."
Central will send its ace TJ
Beasley to the mound for his

first start against the Tigers this
season. Beasley pitched 2 2/3
innings of relief in the second
meeting between the teams,
facing 10 Malone batters and
allowing just one to reach on a
walk, while striking out five.
The junior Beasley is tied for
the team lead with three wins,
while also posting a 2.79 Earned
Run Average in 37 2/3 innings,
and has struck out 70 batters
to just 12 walks and two hit
"He's pretty good," Harkrider
said. "If he's on, he can beat you
1-0. He can be dominant, so we
have to have good approaches.
We don't need to help him out.
We have to make him throw the
ball in the zone. It's what we try
to do every day, and we've been
doing a pretty good job of it late-
ly. We'll see if it carries over into
this one."

said. "I'll be a middle blocker or
an outside hitter. I think I'll prob-
ably play the same position I did
in high school, but I'll have to
work for it."
While looking forward to her
future as a Commodore, Jackson
said she will always remember
fondly her time as a Lady Pirate.
"Ms. Roberts is like another
mom to me," she said of her now
former coach. "She taught me
a lot about volleyball, but also
about life, too. Playing for her

helped me grow and figure out a
lot. I made a lot of great friends
at Sneads and made a lot of great
memories that I'll never forget.
Sneads has a great volleyball pro-
gram, and it's something I'm re-
ally happy to be a part of."
Roberts said she believed Jack-
son's college career will be just as
"I think it's going to be a very
good fit for her," she said. "I have
no doubt she's gding to make that
program better."

night's district title game against
Pensacola Catholic, clinching a
playoff berth in the process.
"It was probably Michael's sec-
ond best pitching performance
of the year," Marianna coach
Andy Shelton said, naming
Mader's shutout win over North
Florida Christian on April 16 ini
Tallahassee as the only one bet-
ter. "He sort of struggled with his
off-speed stuff at times, but he
can throw enough strikes with
the other (pitches) to keep them
off balance.

"I thought he pitched a little
better at North Florida Christian
as a whole, but I hold him to a
higher level now because he's
got to be that good for us and
he knows it. He's one of the bet-
ter pitchers around. We"eneeded
him to be (Tuesday) because the
other guy was just as good."
Walton's Brendan Leach earned
the rare and unique distinction
of pitching a no-hitter in a loss.
Leach allowed just three Mari-
anna base-runners all night, two
on walks and another on an er-
ror, and struck out 12 Bulldogs.
But in the second inning, Kody
Bryan drew a walk for MHS, took
second on a passed ball,*and
then scored when a ground ball
by Brandon Burch got through
the Walton shortstop's legs into
left field.
It was the only offense the Bull-
dogs would need, and the only
offense Leach would allow.

LeBron James: Transition done, ready to take over

The Associated Press

MIAMI A year ago, it
was all different. LeBrori
James calls it a transition
phase,, one where he was
wrapped up in figuring out
how his game was going to
mesh with Dwyane Wade
and Chris Bosh in Miami.
The way James sees it, the
Heat's growing pains are
gone. And he hopes that
means his annual champi-
onship quest will finally be
Driven by last season's
loss to Dallas in the NBA
finals a series where he
made seven field-goal at-
tempts in 68 fourth-quar-
ter minutes James and
the Heat return to the post-
season as the No. 2 seed
on the Eastern Conference
bracket. Their first-round
opponent is still not deter-
mined. Their ultimate goal
was determined long ago.
"I have to be who I am,"
James said in an interview
with The Associated Press.
"Last year was the big-
gest teacher. The greatest
teacher in life is experi-
ence. And I had that last
year. I'm back to being the
person who can take over
"I have no problem tak-
ing over a game now."
Here's an example: In one
recent game, Wade was
walking to the bench for a
time-out. Halfway there,
he was met by James. For
the next 45 seconds, James
was in his teammate's ear
about something. He did
all the talking. Wade did all
the nodding.
A year ago, such a display
probably wouldn't have
happened where 20,000
people could see.
"Obviously, last year we
kind of got cheated a little
bit out of the greatness of
LeBron as a vocal leader,"
Wade said. "He had so
much going on, so much
in his mind that he was
just trying to show every-
body with his play and his
"But this year, especially
of late, we've all been get-
ting the vocal player, 'the
intelligent player that LeB-
ron is. His IQ of the game
is second to none. So you
listen. Especially me."
James' message has
not wavered in months.
He's finally happy after a
year filled with change.
He's going to be that take-
charge player again. He's
more consumed by a

Miami Heat forward LeBron James points during the second half of his game against the
Chicago Bulls on Thursday in Miami.

championship than ever.
Here come the playoffs, a
chance to prove what those
words mean.
"I want to win it all, as bad
as other guys want to win it
- if not more," James said.
"That's why I play as hard as
I do in the regular season,
to build my habits, build
our team's habits. I've been
bothered by last season a
Jot. It's constant. I dream
about it a lot, winning that
trophy and seeing the con-
fetti come down.
"That's why I'm here. I'm
here because I wanted to
compete for a champion-
ship year in and year out."
Game 1 of the opening
round will be in Miami
sometime this weekend.
And even on a team with
stars like Wade and Bosh, it
will be James who may be
facing the highest burden
of playoff expectation.
He has been to the finals
twice now, first when he
and Cleveland wvere swept
by San Antonio, then last
year's six-game defeat
to Dallas. The. loss to the

Spurs carried little in the
way of stigma. The loss to
the Mavericks still gnaws
at him.
James shot 7 for 21 in the
fourth quarters of those six
finals games hist season,
scoring 18 points and get-
ting widely criticized over
the notion that he deferred
to teammates too often.
Dallas star Dirk Nowitzki
shot 18 for 35 in the same
periods, scoring 62 points.
Nowitzki got his first cham-
pionship ring. James is still
waiting for his.
"We want to win obvi-
ously for each other," said
Wade, the 2006 NBA finals
MVP "I've won a cham-
pionship and I want to
win as many as I can. But
I don't want to see many
people win as much as
I want to see No. 6 get a
James' numbers were
off the charts again this
season, starting with ca-
reer-bests in field-goal and
3-point shooting. Entering
Thursday's regular season
finale at Washington, a

matchup where James is
not expected to play, he's
averaging 27.1 points, 7.9
rebounds, 6.2 assists and
1.9 steals per game.
The last player to aver-
age at least that much in
those four categories, was
Michael Jordan in 1988-
89. Two years later, Jordan
won the first of his six NBA
"Put his numbers against
any of the all-time greats in
this, game," Heat forward
Shane Battier said. "He's
right there."
Of course, the only mea-
sure that matters anymore
with James who may
win the NBA's MVP award
for the third time this year
- is how his team does in
the playoffs.
Fair or unfair, that's the
deal. A title is the season's
only goal.
"I think LeBron is .hav-
ing a historic season and
he's doing it on so many
different levels," said Heat
coach Erik Spoelstra, who's
admittedly biased though
insists he's trying to remain

objective. "The responsi-
bility that he has to shoul-
der is really unlike any
player that's played. For us
to be successful, yes, it goes
without saying he has to
have an MVP-caliber sea-
son. But more importantly
he has to utilize every bit of
his versatility"
Just four players will fin-
ish this season averaging
at least 25 points and five
rebounds per game, the
others being Minnesota's
Kevin Love, Oklahoma
City's Kevin Durant and the
Los Angeles Lakers' Kobe
Bryant. Of those, James is
the only one averaging at
least five assists, making
his statline for the season
seems ordinary for him
and extraordinary for any-
one else.
Since James entered
the NBA nine years ago,
there's been 14 instances
of someone averaging
25 points, five rebounds
and five assists. He's done
it eight times, two more
than the rest of the league
"He's a beast," Houston
rookie Chandler Parsons
said. "He's different than
everyone else."
Yet when those in the
Heat locker room start
touting James' MVP can-
* didacy, it's not those num-
bers that they say sets him
apart. They all point to his
defense, with good reason.
James has guarded every-
one from Derrick Rose to
Pau Gasol this season, us-
ing speed to stop some,
strength to stop others,
and doing it while averag-
ing only 1.5 fouls per game

- the lowest for anyone
in the league averaging at
least 36 minutes of court
time per night.
A typical game for James
means playing four po-
sitions on offense, and
guarding at least that many
on the other end.
"He brought it every sin-
gle night," Heat forward
Udonis Haslem said. "Rain;
sleet or snow, injured,
healthy, whatever the situ-
ation may be, he brought it
every single night."
The question now be-
comes how James can car-
ry it over to a title run.
He sounds almost apolo-
getic when the conversa-
tion turns to what his fam-
ily will endure at this time
of year. A few days ago,
James was out of bed early
enough to drive his sons to
school around 7:45 a.m.,
a time of day that isn't ex-
actly popular with those on
the NBA body clock. Soon,
he'll enter what he calls
playoff mode. In short, it's
"It's very tough for them,
because that's the only
thing I care about at that
point," James said. "That's
not saying I don't care
about my family's happi-
ness then of course not.
But the No. 1 goal is the
playoffs and each game
and working our habits. I
become a totally different
person. And they know
that. I'm kind of hard to
work with throughout the
playoffs because that's all I
care about."
That's all anyone cares
about when it comes to
LeBron James.

Lady Bullpups win two over Chipley

The Marianna Middle
School Lady Bullpups
volleyball team took their
game on the road Friday
night and picked up a pair
of wins, one for the A' and
'B' teams.
In the A' game, the Lady

in two games with a 25-23

we didn't have to score many to have
a good chance of winning, and once
we got one, it was a relief," Shelton
said. "But (Leach) pretty much dom-
inated us all night. He hit a lot of
spots, stayed in a good rhythm and
had more than one pitch. It's prob-
ably the first time I've ever been no-
hit and still won."
As a reward, the Bulldogs now get
to face the district's top seed and
their long-time nemesis Pensacola
Catholic tonight in Pensacola.
MHS suffered a pair of one-run
losses to the Crusaders this season,
and has lost eight times in eight tries
to Catholic in the last three years, in-
cluding four times by a single run.
Catholic got a bye into the title
game, and Shelton said he knows
that this game won't be any easier
than the Bulldogs' past match-ups
with the Crusaders.
"They're always tough, but the
kids know we can compete with

D'Keyah Adams and

match went to three games
before the Lady Bullpups
took the victory.
Game one was a 25-

over there and execute and be ready
to play as close to a perfect game as
possible and see what happens. That
means not leaving runners on base,
playing error-free, throwing strikes
with more than one pitch, good
base-running, all of it."
The Crusaders will have their
ace Avery Geyer ready on full rest,
though Shelton said he wasn't yet
certain who would be on the bump
for the Bulldogs.
Senior right-handers Zac Davis
and Austin Branch and sophomore
left-hander Hayden Hurst could all
get the call, with Shelton expressing
confidence in all three of them.
Whoever it is, he'll have his hands
full trying to match Geyer, who
started both regular season games
against Marianna and gave up just
two earned runs in 12 1/3 innings,
striking out 19 batters to just five
walks and six hits.
"He's a good pitcher. He throws
more than one pitch for a strike, and
he just goes at you," Shelton said of
Geyer. "He's comparable to (Leach),

so we know what we're getting. We

While the Bulldogs would relish
a chance to finally break through
against Catholic in the title game,
Marianna will be in the playoffs
regardless, and could get another
chance at the Crusaders in the
second round.
But whenever the Bulldogs take
the field against the Crusaders, it
seems the motivation above all else
is to finally show their rivals to the
West that they can beat them.
Shelton, however, tried to keep
things in perspective.
"We still have the playoffs, so this
is just for home field advantage,"
Shelton said. "I just want the kids to
play better so they can get the feel-
ing of what they're capable of when
they play really well.
"If we do that, then whatever

kids. It would be like finally getting

feel confident that as long

The coach said he wasn't
yet sure who he would start
on the mound, deciding
between Austin Lombardo
and Devin Hayes.
The good news for the
Pirates is that as a result of
Locke's complete game, all
of Sneads' other pitchers

produce runs early in the
season, the Malone of-
fense has come on late in
the year, producing nearly
seven runs per game dur-
ing the team's current 10-
game winning streak. The
Tigers have scored 53 runs
in their last six games.
"There's no question
we're swinging it better
now," Harkrider said. "Our
lineup is set, everyone
knows where they're go-
ing to hit, everyone knows
their role, and I thinkwe've
seen enough pitching and
we're figuring it out. We're
playing small ball a little
better. When we get a guy
on, we've been success-
ful bunting him over and
putting pressure on the
defense. We've just been
clocking. I hope we can
keep it going."
If the offense falters
any, the Tigers will still
have their senior ace Nick
Breeden on the mound
to steer the ship. Breeden
has saved his best season
for his last, leading the
Tigers with six wins, 65

strikeouts and a 0.72 ERA
in 48 1/3 innings.
'"Nick just needs to do
what he's done all year,
nothing more," Harkrider
said. "He's our most
consistent guy. He throws
a lot of strikes, he pitches
to the defense and lets
them work behind him.
We expect his best."
The coach said he was
concerned about his
team's week-long layoff
between games, but when
the first pitch is thrown, he
said he anticipates both
teams being ready for the

it's just about being locked
in and making adjust-
ments, and fighting and
getting after it for seven
innings," Harkrider said.
"Beating them twice has
no bearing on what hap-
pens in this one. They'll
get our best shot, just like
I'm sure we'll get theirs."

Annie's Mailbox

Dear Annie: Ayear ago, I fell in love with
"Bobby" over the Internet. Two months
later, he said he loved me. I was stunned.
But a little later, he told me he was in a
relationship and the girl was suicidal. He
was afraid that if he broke it off, she'd kill
herself. I've had suicidal thoughts myself
and understood.
Bobby sent me wonderful messages
that made me feel terrific. I was happier
than ever, even though he was terribly
depressed about his situation. We made a
promise that as long as we had each other,
we wouldn't kill ourselves. After a while, I
lost all desire to hurt myself. He gave me a
reason to live.
But, Annie, sometimes Bobby acts like a
player. He flirts with other women. When I
get upset, he always apologizes. I checked
his online profile and saw messages to
and from his current girlfriend. In one, he
told her he "wasn't ready to let go of her
and was sorry they broke up." He never
told me they weren't together anymore.
I posted a message, too, giving him a
piece of my mind. But since he's been
suicidal, I worry about him and frequently
check to make sure he's been online and
is OK. Whenever people say something
mean about him, I always defend him.
The truth is, I still love him, but I'm

Dear Michigan: Close the book and
throw it away. Bobby is not honest, and
any relationship with him would even-
tually involve misery for you. We think
you know this. We're glad you no longer
have suicidal thoughts, but if they should
return, please get some counseling and
talk to someone who can truly help you.
You should never rely on another person
for your happiness.
Dear Annie; This is in response to "Mom
in Connecticut," who asked about email-
ing thank-you notes. Few children would
be eager to handwrite a thank-you note,
but I have the solution. When my children
were young, they were not permitted to
enjoy the gift (spend the money, watch the
DVD, play with the toy, etc.) until a hand-
written thank-you was ready to be mailed.
Now I don't have to remind them, as they
know it is expected of them.
Dear Mom: We wish more parents were as
conscientious as you. It would help with
a lot of problems not only thank-you

Recall: DR50 and DR70 Baja dirt bikes
The Florida Department of Agriculture and
Consumer Services, the U.S. Consumer Prod-
uct Safety Commission, and Baja Inc. d/b/a
Baja Motorsports, of Anderson, S.C., have an-
nounced the recall of about 4,300 Baja dirt
bikes (previously recalled in March 2011).
The fuel tank can leak, posing a fire and burn
hazard to consumers.
The firm has received 16 reports of fires from
leaking fuel, including two reports of minor
burns to consumer's legs and one report of a
minor burn to a consumer's finger. Ten of the
reported incidents, including two of the burn
injuries, were received after the March 2011
recall announcement.
This recall involves all model DR50 and DR70 -
Baja dirt bikes with vehicle identification num-
ber (VIN) beginning with "L98," the letter "B"
as the 10th character of the VIN and having a
yellow dot or line marked on or near the VIN.
The model number and VIN are located on
the product data plate, which is located on
the side of the "goose neck" where the han-
dle bars meet the body of the bike.
The recalled dirt bikes were manufactured in
China and sold at Pep Boys and other motor
sports stores nationwide from December
2010 through January 2012 for between $450
and $650.
Consumers should immediately stop using
the recalled dirt bikes and contact Baja
Motorsports to schedule a free repair. Call
(888) 863-2252 between 10 a.m. and 7 p.m. ET
Monday through Friday, or visit the firm's
website at www.bajamotorsports.com.
NOTE: Consumerswho participated in the
March 2011 recall should contact the firm to
see if a new repair is required.

JACKSON COUNTY FLORIDAN www.jcfloridan.com

After Luck & RGIII, it's anxious time for players

The Associated Press

NEW YORK -- Andrew Luck
knows exactly where he's head-
ing, and so does Robert Griffin
For the rest of the college stars
preparing for the NFL draft to-
night, the anxiety is building.
Nobody is looking forward to the
green room at Radio City Music
"It kind of made me a little ner-
vous when we were talking to
the commissioner and he said,
'You'll be back there for an hour
NFL DRAFT and it'll feel
- First round, like you've
at New York, been back
7 p.m. ESPN there for
f five days,"'
Southern California tackle Matt
Kalil said.
"I'll be sweatin' up a storm
back there, and I want to have
my name called and not have to
wait too long."
He shouldn't have to worry
much about-that. Most mock
drafts project Kalil to go third
overall to Minnesota after Luck
heads to Indianapolis and Grif-
fin to Washington. But he knows
better than to put much stock in
the predraft chatter.
"I stopped paying attention to
all of that stuff," said Kalil, at-
tending an NFL event at a play-
ground in Manhattan. "No one
really has a clue. Unless you're
the GM of a team, you don't re-
ally know who a team is going
to pick, so you just let it all play
That's the approach for the
nearly two dozen other players

"I'll be sweating' up a storm back there, and I want to have my
name called and not have to wait too long."
Matt Kalil,
Southern California tackle

From left, NFL draft prospects Trent Richardson, of Alabama, Robert Griffin
III, of Baylor, Andrew Luck, of Stanford, and Justin Blackmon, of Oklahoma
State, pose for photos on Wednesday.

who'll be at Radio City and have
no idea when they might walk
onto the stage, shake Commis-
.sioner Roger Goodell's hand and
hold up the jersey of the team
with which they'll start their
professional career.
"For Luck and RGIII, they know
what's going on and they know
where they're going to live and
all that kind of stuff," Alabama
safety Mark Barron said. "A lot of
us other guys, we're still wonder-
ing where we're going to be liv-
ing for the next however many
Griffin, the Heisman Trophy
winner from Baylor, is comfort-
ed by already knowing he'll be
a member of the Redskins. But
he thinks he might actually miss
the draft-day jitters. Well, at least
a little bit.

"It kind of puts. yourself at
ease," he said, "but it does kind
of rob you of that natural draft-
ee experience where you don't
know where you're going and
you're in limbo."
Added South Carolina defen-
sive end Melvin Ingram: "Yeah, I
guess that would be kind of dif-
ferent. You won't get that adren-
aline of, 'Oh, man. I hope they
pick me,' when you know where
you're going."
Luck will go No. 1 overall to Ip-
dianapolis after a terrific career
at Stanford. Like Griffin, he is
also expected to step right into a
starting job as a rookie.
"I guess it's nice, but there's
always competition in football
and if I go out there and lay an
egg and I'm not the best quarter-
back out there, I hope they don't

start me," Luck said. "I'm excited,
though. I'm going to go out there
and hopefully play, obviously,
and put my best foot forward
and enjoy all the guys."
Luck acknowledged that it was
a "relief" to know he'll be going
to the Colts even if they're
starting from scratch after they
released Peyton Manning.
"Obviously the slate has been
wiped somewhat clean with
some new coaches and some
players who have gone or left,
but I'll try to come in there and
work as hard as I can," Luck said.
"If that means it's a rebuilding
process, I guess you can label
it as that. The guys I'm sure are
working very hard and I just want
to get out there and join them."
After Luck and Griffin, Texas
A&M's Ryan Tannehill is expect-
ed to be the next quarterback
taken possibly eighth overall
by Miami, where he'd be reunit-
ed with Mike Sherman. The new
Dolphins offensive coordinator
was Tannehill's head coach the
last four years.
"If I did happen to go there, it
would be good;" said Tannehill,
who would compete with starter
Matt Moore. "It would give me
some familiarity with the of-
fense, so I think it would help
ease the transition a little bit."
Oklahoma State's Justin Black-
mon will likely be the first wide

receiver picked, possibly as high
as No. 4 by Cleveland. Notre
Dame's Michael Floyd, Georgia
Tech's Stephen Hill and Baylor's
Kendall Wright are other receiv-
ers who might go in the opening
"It's a great time to come into
the league if you are a receiver,"
said Blackrnon, a two-time win-
ner of the Biletnikoff Award as
college football's top receiver.
"More teams are throwing the
ball a lot more, it's more wide
open than ever on offense."
Other players who could be
top-10 picks are Ingram, Ala-
bama running back Trent Rich-
ardson, LSU cornerback Morris
Claiborne,. Mississippi State de-
fensive tackle Fletcher Cox and
North Carolina defensive end
Quinton Coples.
Alabama's Barron, Richardson,
linebackers Courtney Upshaw
and Dont'a Hightower, and cor-
nerback Dre Kirkpatrick could all
hear their names called tonight.
"This is a great experience, es-
pecially when you have a team
where we came from," Richard-
son said. "All these guys are going
to the draft and we're all going to
be in the first round. Alabama set
the bar high last year when they
had four come out and all four
went in the first round. Hopeful-
ly we can break that record and
have five."

Falcons acquire CB Asante Samuel from Eagles

The Associated Press

ATLANTA The Atlanta Falcons gave
up only a seventh-round draft pick on
Wednesday when they acquired four-
time Pro Bowl cornerback Asante Samuel
from the Philadelphia Eagles.
The Falcons announced the trade after
Samuel agreed to restructure his con-
tract to a three-year, $18.5 million deal.
His contract with Philadelphia called for
him to earn $9.9 million in 2012 and $11.4

million in 2013.
Samuel, 31, gives Atlanta a strong but
high-priced trio at cornerback with Dun-
ta Robinson and Brent Grimes under new
defensive coordinator Mike Nolan.
Grimes, who signed his franchise tag
tender Tuesday, will make $10.262 mil-
lion this season. Robinson will earn $6
"Asante has established himself as avery
productive player during his career," Fal-
cons general manager Thomas Dimitroff

said. "He is a proven player in this league
and we feel that this move upgrades the
talent of our roster and improves our
football team."
The Falcons are left with five picks but
no first-round selection in tonight's NFL
Samuel became expendable when the
Eagles signed Nnamdi Asomugha and
acquired Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie
last July, giving them three Pro Bowl cor-
nerbacks. But the team couldn't find a

suitable deal for Samuel, so they kept
him and used Rodgers-Cromartie in the
nickel spot.
While Asomugha and Rodgers-
Cromartie struggled in a new defense
and new roles, Samuel was the most con-
sistent of the trio. The outspoken Samuel
probably sealed his fate in Philadelphia
when he criticized the front office at the
trade deadline, saying management was
