At Baker's one-day trial Tues-
day, the state faced an unfore-
seen difficulty early in the day
when a key witness for the pros-
ecution recanted earlier state-
ments she had made.
The prosecutor asserted that
the witness had initially indi-
cated that Baker had a gun with
him the day of the encounter
between Baker and officer Brett
Preston. But on the stand, she
denied having said that. In the
end, however, jurors believed
the police officer's continued as-'
sertion that Baker was armed.

jury .earlier this year of an at-
tempted murder charge in that

Home Source International Inc. will
set up a production center at the old Al-
liance Laundry/UNIMAC building in
larianna's industrial park. The company,
codenamed "Project Comfort" by local of-
ficials throughout negotiations to bring it
here, was revealed in a news conference
on Tuesday at NMarianna City Hall.
"We look forward to a long relationship
with this company," said Marianna Mayor
"Home Source International is proud
to be a new citizen of Marianna and the
state of Florida," said Mike Beard, Home
Source International's chief financial
Beard said the company began looking
for a community that would support it in
its new focus toward "Made in the USA"
products last year.
Home Source got its start, in 2000 by
marketing and bringing in products from
other countries, largely China and India,
to sell to consumers in,the U.S. These,
products include microcotton towels and
bamboo sheets. It does produce similar
items, especially bedding, in the U.S.,
Home Source looked into locations
in six states, Alabama, Florida, Georgia,
North Carolina, South Carolina and Vir-
ginia. Ultimately, incentives provided by
and through local officials and the skills
of the local workforce drove the company
to agree to create a location in Marianna.
Bill Stanton, director of the Jackson
Con ty Development Council. said $1.4
million from the state's quick action clos-
ing fund and a tentative $2.46 million
Community Development Block Grant
were those financial incentives.
No tax exemptions were offered to the
The $1.4 million will be given to the city
of Marianna, a departure from the ortho-
dox method of giving the funds to the in-
coming company, said Stanton. The city
will oversee its distribution to make im-
provements to the building itself, which
it owns. Stanton credited Stare Rep. Marti

Let's listen to
school boards and the state Department of
Education are not having a healthy con-
versation about Florida's student-testing
The boards and the department are commu-
nicating through stilted resolutions by the
Florida School Board Association and defensive
statements by the education commissioner
but they are not engaged in productive dia-
logue. That is not good for students, teachers,
parents or the state.
Education Commissioner Gerard Robinson is'
on the record as stating that Florida's stakehold-
ers in education "need to have avery healthy
conversation about why assessments matter."
Yet, on June 14, Robinson criticized school .
boards and their associations for questioning
the state's policies, including a heavy reliance on
the Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test and
In response to a resolution adopted by the as-
sociation during its meeting in Tampa, Robinson
erroneously contended that school boards "ques-
tion the need for educational assessments," con-
tradicting his own assertion by noting that school
districts require students to take more tests than
the state mandates. He also said the boards are
"short on providing hope to schoolchildren" and
continued to refer to the FCAT as a "so-called
By any other measure than Robinson's, the'
FCAT-and other exams mandated by the state are,
in fact, high-stakes. The results of these tests are
being used to rank schools, evaluate teachers,
allocate funding and determine whether students
advance to the next grade or graduate from high
.It would be better if Robinson spent less time
parsing "high stakes" and more time listening to
the legitimate criticism of school boards, .
teachers, parents and students.
: The resolution adopted by the association this
month does not call into question the need for
educational assessments. The association did,
however, challenge Florida's overreliancee" on
specific tests and expressed valid concerns about
its impacts on students.
The association also called for an independent
review and evaluation of Florida's tests and test-
ing regime. In light of their wide-ranging effects
and discrepancies in outcomes, the call for state
accountability measures is warranted.
The Legislature and the Education Department
have generally taken a top-down, heavy-handed
approach to student testing.
Before the FCAT and statewide standards were
imposed, Florida's 67 school districts lacked a
cohesive approach to education. However, when
locally elected officials, who have a direct stake
in public education, say Florida has gone too far
with its rigid policies, state officials and legisla- ,
tors should listen. Like, students, they don't have:
.all the right answers.

On cheering what will happen in prison

ens of people stayed up near
midnight last Friday to see former

Sandusky, 68, deserves the most

Facebook pal who voices hope
that Sandusky will have done to
him forcibly, in prison what
he did to children. The same goes
for many who write thai he should

killed, by fellow inmates. It's as if
they're saying, "The Constitution's

deserves. Fortunately, we have
plenty of civic-minded; courageous
sadists and sociopaths in prison to
deal with guys like him."

in,1977, I discussed with him the
possibility of building a boat ramp

After talking with the other
county commissioners and re-
searching some possibilities, Mr.
Williams asked me if I thought the
west end of the dug canal north of
the barge port would be a suitable,
location. The county had already
built a road to access the barge port
and the ramp would only be a short
distance away and easilyacces-
sible, thus costing the county less
I was asked by Mr. Williams to get
some others to help me lay out the

The Federal Government (on
Thursday) said that rather than
let the economy sink back into a
recession (current growth has fallen
below 2 percent again last quarter)
they would expand the money
supply. In the past, monetary and
fiscal controls have been used to
fine tune the economy usually
to bring down inflation. We have
learned from the actions of this
administration two years ago that
they use it as a sledge hammer.
They printed over half trillion dol-
lars then (in addition to the trillion
dollar deficits they were accumu-
lating as part of the budget process)
if you can call it that since the
Democrats haven't passed a budget
in their four years, including the
two years they had total control of
the government. They dodged a
bullet with that reckless behavior.
Since they had already created the
longest recession in American his-
tory, inflation was hardly a threat.
Still, if you purchased gasoline or
groceries last year you got a taste of
the pain of inflation.
Now they're at it again!
All industrialized countries
stopped the practice of printing
money for the past hundred years
because of the disaster visited on
Germany's Weimar Republic. This
was the government destroyed
prior to the National Socialists
(Nazis) taking power. The reason
for their demise was the free print-
ing of money. Inflation showed that
it could have a mind of its own and
destroy a currency. Everyone had
learned this lesson and stopped
doing it well, until two years ago.
It looks like the roller coaster ride
is starting again in time to re-elect

Since only a few people are alive
that can remember the Weimar
Republic, and most weren't around
when Jimmy Carter in the 1970s
introduced a new type of inflation
called cost-push, I thought I'd share
an interesting example.
The German Historical Museum
in Berlin has a fascinating postage
stamp collection. The first stamp
for the year 1920 was issued at
five pfennigs (one twentieth of a
mark) but doubled in price over the
year to 10 pfennigs (one tenth of
a mark). By 1922, it cost 10 marks
(one hundred times as much) to
mail a letter. In January 1923,'it cost
-30 marks to mail that letter, a thou-
sand marks by May of that year,
and 800,000 marks by October. By
the end of 1923, sending a letter
cost 10 billion marks.

US Supreme Court
Ruling offers inmates rare chance at freedom
The Associated Press
DETROIT The Su-
preme Court ruling that
banned states from im-
posing mandatory life
sentences on juveniles of-
fers an unexpected chance
at freedom to more than
2,000 inmates who had al-
most no hope they would
ever get out.
In more than two dozen
states,, lawyers can now
ask for new sentences.
And judges will have dis-
cretion to look beyond
the crime at other factors
such as a prisoner's age at
the time of the offense, the
person's background and
perhaps evidence that an
inmate has changed while
"The sentence may still
be the same," said Law-
rence Wojcik, a Chicago
lawyer who co-chairs the
juvenile justice commit-
tee of the American Bar
Association. "But even a
sentence with a chance for
parole gives hope."
Virtually all of the sen-
tences in question are for
murder. When Henry Hill
was an illiterate 16-year-
old, he was linked to a kill-
ing at a park in Saginaw
County and convicted

was never accused of firing
the fatal shot. Nonetheless,

a mentality of a 9-year-old.
I didn't understand what
life without parole even
meant," Hill, now 48, said

while watching TV news in
"I got up hollering and re-
joicing and praising God,"
said Hill, who would like
to renovate homes and be
a mentor to children if he's
released. "The last three or
four years, they always put
young guys in with me."
The ruling also alarmed
families of crime victims.

life without parole for ju-
veniles violates the Consti-

The Graceville Tigers complet-
ed a perfect opening day at the
Florida-Alabama Shootout on
Monday night in Poplar Springs,
winning all three of their games
in dominating fashion.
The Tigers opened up with a
63-21 victory over Geneva Coun-
ty before topping Dothan 63-48,
and then ended the day with a
65-41 win over Ashford.
Graceville wasn't seriously

games, though Dothan did rally
from a 20-point deficit to cut the
margin to 11 late before the Ti-
gers pushed it back out.

Monday night. "We played some
good teams last weekend in Pan-

Heat turn attention to draft,
The Associated Press
MIAMI The scent of
champagne is gone from
the Miami Heat locker
room. The streets of down-
town have been cleaned
up from the championship
parade. The final team
meeting has been held.
Not even a week after
winning the NBA Finals,
next year is already here
for the Heat.
They hold the No. 27 pick
in the draft on Thursday
night, have a list of free
agents they would like to
start speaking with on Sun-
day and are busy planning
for what they want to ac-
complish in next month's
summer league in Las Ve-
gas. So while players like
LeBron James, Chris Bosh
and Dwyane Wade can
continue reveling in a title,
Miami's braintrust like
team president Pat Riley
and coach Erik Spoelstra
are in back-to-work mode.
"Certainly, we were able
to enjoy the weekend, like
we haven't been able to for
the whole season," Spoel-
stra said. "That's been
tremendous. But we're in
a different situation than
the players and our staff
understands that right
now. This is an important
week and then everything
leading up to this summer
league and then all the
way through this summer
league will be important.
... We're not in a rush to
celebrate right now."
Spoelstra said that when
he arrived at work Monday,
he saw a list of free agents
that might be available, as
well as the latest details on
Miami's draft plans and
salary cap situation going
into the summer.
Right then, Spoelstra
said, he "realized how far
behind I am."

CANCER (June 21-July 22)
- If you have any hope of
resolving a domestic prob-
lem that arises, you must
take a firm position and
stand by it.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)
- Being fair-minded and
unbiased is required if you
hope to win others over to
your point of view.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
- Because you should be
able to clearly perceive the
difference between what
is essential spending and
what isn't, this is a good
day to handle your budget.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23)
-An objective that is of ut-
most personal importance
might not be, so vital for
the others involved. Work
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov.
22) Although you may
appear to be in your own
world, you'll be hard at
work weighing and balanc-
ing critical issues that will
make or break your plans.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-
Dec. 21) This is not a good
day to talk shop or to try to
promote a special interest
when in a social setting.
-CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan.
19) Whether you like it
or not, your public image
is being assessed by some
rather severe critics.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb.
.19) You should trade
on your past experiences
instead of totally ignor-
ing them. If you don't,
you could be tempted, to
attempt something that
didn't work out too well the
last time you tried it.
PISCES (Feb. 20-March
20) You should know
that you would derive the
greatest of pleasure from
engaging in shared activi-
ties. If you decide to play a
loner's role, this will be just
another humdrum day.
ARIES (March 21-April 19)
Because the needs and
requirements of those with
whom you're involved are
too restrictive, you may
start to look for a way out.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20)
- Make sure you have the
necessary tools, materials
and time before tackling a
GEMINI (May 21-June 20)
Activities that include
friendly competition will
be appealing to you. Keep
wagers out of the picture.
Dear Annie: I've been a stepmother to
two lovely girls, now 12 and 17, since
they were very young. My husband gladly
pays.child support on time without fail.
The girls have different mothers who
raise their children in opposite ways, yet
in both cases, it's rare that the child sup-
port actually reaches the child.
The amount of child support each
mother receives is fair, but is being used
incorrectly. The girls continuously need
,clothes, shoes, haircuts, coats, money for
school activities, you name it.
My question is this: If the conversation
falls on deaf ears with both mothers, is it
OK to explain the financial situation to
the girls? What's my,role?
NORTH CAROLINA STEPMOM
Dear Stepmom: To be supportive. Do
not involve the children in your dispute
over child support. This is not their fault,
and they shouldn't be put in the middle
of unhappy parents. If your husband
feels the support payments are not being
used to cover the girls' necessities, he
needs to document what he spends for
these things and then talk to his lawyer
and ask that the payments be reduced.
This week we are looking at playing the right
spot cards. In this deal, East opens one heart,
South jumps to four spades, and everyone
passes. What should West lead?
Note South's four-spade overcall. He needs so
little from partner to make game laydown. Also, W
given East's opening bid, it is unlikely that his
side can make a slam. Four spades is so much
more likely to inconvenience the responder
than miss a slam.
When making the opening lead, the general '
principle is that a low card from a three-card
or longer suit guarantees at least one honor in
that suit. However, when leading partner's un-
supported suit, the rules are high from a dou-
bleton; or low from three-plus, even without
an honor in the suit. Here, West must lead the
heart two. Then, after East wins with his nine
and cashes the ace, he will know that South is
out of hearts. East will shift to the diamond two
and the defense will win the first four tricks.
IfWest leads the heart eight, that shows a sin-
gleton or a doubleton. East will expect to cash
a third heart trick, but South will ruff, draw
trumps and run the clubs for anovertrick.
Dear Annie: I am a 28-year-old mother
of two beautiful children.'I have an aunt
who suffers from various conditions,
and over the years, she has been put on
several medications. Three years ago,
her oldest son died in a car accident. Her
middle child recently had a bout with
cancer. Things have not been easy. I have
-watched her physical and mental health
spiral downward. Sometimes she babbles
on about nonsense and odd things. How
do I get my family some help?
--FIGHTING FOR MY FAMILY
Dear Family: Please tell your children
that 'Aunt Bee" is not well, and teach
them how to be tolerant and compas-
sionate. If she is taking a variety of
medications and is babbling and talking
nonsense, it is very possible that she is
overmedicated or needs to check the
dosages and interactions. Whoever is
in charge of her medical care should
address this with her doctor. If no one
is in charge, please offer to make an ap-
pointment and accompany her, and ask
whether it's OK to speak to the doctor on
her behalf. She also sounds like she could
benefit from grief therapy.

shaky startto earn
The Associated Press
- Returning to the court
where she won her first
Grand Slam champion-
ship a year ago, Petra Kvi-
tova overcame a shaky
start and a late rain delay
Tuesday to open her Wim-
bledon title defense with a
6-4, 6-4 victory over.Akgul
Four-time champion Ser-
ena Williams, meanwhile,
returned to the same Court
2 where big sister Venus
was upset a day earlier and
restored family pride by
beating Barbora Zahlavova
Strycova of the Czech Re-
public 6-2, 6-4.
The fourth-seeded Kvi-
tova fell.behind 3-0 and 4-
1 in the first set on Centre
Court before running off
seven straight games to
take command against the
96th-ranked player from
After Kvitova squandered
a match point at 5-3 in
the second set, play was
suspended and the cov-
ers rolled onto the court
- the first rain break of the
When play resumed half
an hour later, it took just
three minutes to wrap up
the match. After Amanmu-
radova won the first two
points to hold for 5-4, the
Czech player closed it out
at love, hitting a service
winner, two aces and forc-
ing a backhand error.
"It was unbelievable to
come back here as the de-
fending champion," said
Kvitova, who beat Maria
Sharapova in last year's
final. "In the beginning I
think I was nervous first
match on the grass it's
always difficult to know
what you can expect. I had
a lot of mistakes and then I
tried to play my game and
The 6-foot-3 Amanmura-
dova pushed Kvitova with:
her big serve, but lacked
the consistency on her,
ground strokes aiid has
now lost in the first round
of all five of her.Wimble-:
Following Kvitova: onr
Centre Court was two-time
champion Rafael Nadal;
and he found himself in an
early hole just as she had.
Nadal was down 4-0 in the
opening set, but roared
back to beat Brazilian left-
hander Thomaz Bellucci
7-6 (0), 6-2, 6-3. The Span-
iard closed the match with
an ace down the middle,'
his sixth of the day.
Nadal, coming off his
record seventh French
Open title, broke six times
and had 35 winners and
18 errors. Having lost in
last year's final to Novak
Djokovic, he is bidding for
a 12th Grand Slam title.
"I'm very happy to be
back on the best court in
the world and winning,"
Nadal said. "It's fantastic
for me, but I have to .im-
prove a lot for the next
Play was later suspended
for the day because of rain
and poor light, leaving sev-
eral matches unfinished.
Three-time finalist Andy
Roddick was leading Brit-
ain's Jamie Baker 7-6 (1), 4-
2 on Court 1 when the cov-
ers came on. Tenth-seeded
Sara Errani, runner-up at
the French Open earlier
this month, was holding
match point in the second
setwhen her match against
American qualifier Coco
Vandeweghe was halted.
Serena Williams ground,
out a shriek-filled win over
Strycova, a day after five-
time champion Venus lost
her first-round match on
the same court in straight
sets to ElenaVesnina.
"It always has some sort
of an effect," Serena said.
"I always want to play even
better if she's out of the
It was clear how much
the match meant to the
animated Serena, who
screamed loudly in frus-
tration after losing points
and shouted "Come on!"
and pumped her fist after
winning big points.
Williams seemed to be in
control after going up 3-1
and then 5-3 in the sec-
ond set. But, serving for
the match, she was bro-
ken back for 5-4. Williams
broke again in the next
game, letting out another
scream after Zahlavova
Strycova struck a forehand
long on the second match
"Definitely a little relief,"
she said. "I was letting out
a lot of cries. I was happy
to get through that."
Williams, who extended
her record to 13-0 in first-
round matches at Wim-
bledon, finished with 24
winners and 12 unforced
errors, compared to 17
winners and 13 errors for
Last year, Williams ques-
tioned whytourament or-
ganizers assigned her and
her sister to play on Court
2 rather than Centre Court,.
considering they have won
a combined nine singles
titles at Wimbledon. On
Tuesday, she declined to
address the issue.
"I can't, even talk about
it," she said. "I'm over it. I
don't care to talk about it."
Also advancing to the
second round in straight
sets was No. 2 Victoria
Azarenka, the Australian
Open champion who beat
American Irina Falconi 6-
1, 6-4. Azarenka reached
the semifinals at Wimble-
