Vol. 89 No, 138
for Flat Road project
BY DEBORAH BUCKHALTER
As Jackson County Com-
the possibility of gearing
up for another major round
of road-paving projects,
they're beginning to hear
from people who want to
be on that next list.
The county is currently
working through a $10
million, multi-phase pav-
ipg project, using a por-
tion of its annual gas tax
fund distribution to pay off
the. loan as the payments
come due. This is the first
organized paving project
of this size since the mid-
1980s, according to Com-
mission Chairman Chuck
And commissioners say
they may embark on an-,
other one when it's done.
Two weeks ago, some
residents who live on or
near the grouping of Neal's
Landing, Bowers and Lib-
erty Hill roads asked the
county to .consider paving
the full length of those dirt
This week, a contingent
from Flat Road put that
road's name in the hat.

their attorney look into the
matter, but his report this
Tuesday offered Cowart
little hope that the county
would step in.
Cowart had indicated to
the board that restrictions
exist to prevent the tree-
cutting, somewhere in the
early paperwork associat-
ed with the. establishment
of the Compass Lake in
the Hills subdivision more
than 40 years ago.
But Baker's research into
the subdivision's devel-
opment order and estab-
lishing ordinance yielded
no clear reference to any
large-parcel "drain ways"
that Cowart said are pro-
tected and meat to be left
in their natural states.
Instead, Baker said, the
restrictions in those docu-
ments only appear to re-
fer to some narrow strips
of easement that run
alongside the property in
At the same time, Baker
acknowledged that he can't

67-year-old Graceville woman raising money for kidney transplant
BY LAUREN DELGADO
Ruby Ellis, a 67-year-old
woman from .Graceville,
has been on kidney dialy-
sis since 2005 awaiting a
new kidney after a previ-
ous transplant failed. She
is now at the top of the do-
nor list but 'when the call
comes for her new kidney,
she may have to pass on
the opportunity for a new
lease on life.
"She's been in good

Ellis and her family need
to raise about $7,000 to
cover the items her in-
surance won't, including
operation fees, room and
board at the hospital for
one month, and about
$1,200 for a 3-month
supply of medication.
So far, Ellis' family and
friends have raised just
under $3,000 and have a
few fundraisers planned in
the coming months.
Currently, the family is
selling 12 different flavors
of trail mix, including hon-
ey roasted peanuts, cara-
mel apple corn and cherry
red licorice, at $6 a bag. To
purchase a bag, call Davis
at 850-326-3478. The last
day to place an order will
be July 20 and the orders
will be in by August 6.
There will also be a
benefit concert by All in
One Gospel Singers at
5 p.m. on Aug. 4, at the
Union Hill Missionary Bap-
tist Church in Marianna.
Charles Milton, the group's
manager, has known Ellis
for about 25 years.

other, suggesting disagreement over the basis for
upholding the state law."

It's easy to earn aloser label
B ill Young, the longest-serving
Republican in Congress, ywas
being bashed by liberals last
week for being "insensitive."
To sensitive liberals, this is the
worst of crimes. It outranks more
minor transgressions such as trying
to protect your borders or trying
to eliminate voting fraud. And it's
on a par with amassing great sums
of wealth by actually producing
something, as opposed to being
able to stuff a ball through a hoop
or impersonating someone in front
of a camera.
What insensitive thing Young
did was answer a question at a
public event. Some Michael Moore
wannabe, or "progressive activist"
with a video camera as he was de-
scribed, was beratingYoung for not
supporting a $10 minimum wage.
Young told him to get a job.
But the liberal media get to de-
termine who among us are winners
and losers. It is one of their perks.
So Young was deemed a "loser"
because he "came across as insen-
sitive in a tough economy" and*
it "earned him a healthy dose of
unflattering news coverage."
Got it? They gave him the news
coverage. It was free. He didn't earn
it. Then they blasted him for having
it, and labeled him a "loser."
They also determined with their
highly calibrated sensitometers
that it came across as insensitive.
To Whom? Not me. It came across
as a perfectly reasonable response.
Maybe my sensitometer is.on the
According to one story, the guy
had a job, making $8.50 an hour. If
he wanted to be paid $10 an hour,
one would expect him to apply for
a job paying that amount. Had he
applied for one?
We don't know. Not important to
have a critical fact when you are
beating up a-conservative con-
gressman. But the activist favored a
higher minimum wage. That made
him a hero to the liberal media.

me. Why just $10? Why not $20?
That's roughly the average hourly

happens to be the average wage of
Surely they want other people to

Liberals think minimum wages
are great. It is not important to
them that raising the minimum
wage casts thousands of people out
of their jobs or prevents them
from being hired, which is pretty
much the same thing or that the
majority of those sacrificed jobs are
held by black teenagers.

President Romney just finished
taking his oath of office. He turns to
the American people and says:
"My fellow Americans, as you
know I promised to eliminate
Obamacare when it was ruled
constitutional. Since we didn't
get the 60 senate seats'needed to
do that, I'm going to follow my
predecessor's example on immigra-
tion and decided not to enforce
the Health Law. There will be no
penalties to any insurance compa-
ny which decides to ignore it. That
"mandate" that starts next year, I've
directed the IRS (the enforcer of the
mandate) that they are not to add
any penalties (taxes?), In fact, Vice

my fantasy) doesn't like anything

'of work). If he can pick and choose
which laws to administer then he
can nullify (or at least temporar-
fly suspend) just about anything

happens to be in residence.
We could very well live under one
set of laws when a Republican is in
the White House, and a completely
different set of laws when a Demo-

system is confusing..... ` "
If liberals still say that letting all
the immigrants in is worth com-

I make one.more observation? For
40 straight years the Democratic
party held both the House and'the
Senate (muchlike Obama had dur-
ing his first two years). The vast ma-
jority of laws we have to currently
live under were passed by them
during their all powerful era. Those
laws could be suspended every
time they lose the White House.
Of course this scenario wouldn't
last very long since sooner or later a
President will figure out that he can
stay in office if he doesn't enforce

Global warming tied to
risk of weather extremes
The Associated Press
NEW YORK Last year brought a
record heat wave to Texas, massive
floods in Bangkok and an unusually
warm November, in England. How
much has global warming boosted
the chances of events like that?.
Quite a lot in Texas and England,
but apparently not at all in Bangkok,
say new analyses released Tuesday.
Scientists can't blame any single
weather event on global warming,
but they can assess how climate
change has altered the odds of such
events happening, Tom Peterson
of the National Oceanic and Atmo-
spheric Administration told report-
ers in a briefing. He's an editor of a
report that includes the analyses
published by the Bulletin of the
American Meteorological Society.
In the Texas analysis, research-
ers at Oregon State University and
in England noted that the state suf-
fered through record heat last year. It
happened during a La Nina weather
pattern, the flip side of El Nino.
Caused by the cooling of the cen-
tral Pacific Ocean, La Nina generally
cools global temperatures but would
be expected to make the southern
United States warmer and drier than
usual. But beyond that, the scientists
wondered, would global warming,
affect the chances of such .an event
To find out, they ran a lot of com-
puter simulations of Texas climate
duringLaNinayears. They compared
the outcome of three such years in
the 1960s with that of .2008, which
was used as a stand-in for 2011 be-
. cause they were unable to simulate
last year. The idea, they said, was to
check the likelihood of such a heat
wave both before and after there was
a lot of man-made climate change,
which is primarily from burning
fossil fuels like coal and oil.
Their conclusion: Global warm-
ing has made such a Texas heat
wave about 20 times more likely to
happen during a La Nina year.
Using a similar approach, scien-
tists from Oxford University and the

British government looked at tem-
peratures in central England. Last
November was the second warm-,
est in that region in more than 300
years. And December 2010 was the
second coldest in that time.
Their analysis concluded that
global warming has made sych a
warm November about 62 times
more likely, and such a cold
December just half as likely.
Kevin Trenberth, of the National
Center for Atmospheric Research's
climate analysis section, said that
he found the Britain study to be
reasonable, given what he called
a flawed climate model. As for the
Texas result, he said that given how
the study was done, the calculated
increase in likelihood "could well be

scale of the flooding was influenced
more by factors like reservoir opera-
tion policies, researchers wrote.

Tuesday night's Sebring vs. East Lakeland
Marianna was able to overcome a
dominant pitching performance by
Okeechobee's Gabe Greseth, who struck
out a whopping 16 batters on the night.
Greseth also added a solo home run in the
bottom of the first inning.
But it was Gray that struck first in the top
of the inning with a two-RBI single to give
his team a 2-0 edge.
Marianna added another run in the third
inning before a rain delay stopped the
game for approximately a half hour with an
Okeechobee runner on third base with two
outs in the bottom of the fourth.
When the game resumed, Gray had two
strikes on Greseth, who chased a curve ball
in the dirt for strike three.
But the ball got away from the catcher,
allowing the run to score from third and
Greseth to make it to first, trimming the
lead to 3-2.

Penn State report due out
The Associated Press
STATE COLLEGE, Pa. An in-
ternal investigation into whether
football coach Joe Paterno and
other Penn State officials helped
cover up reports that Jerry San-
dusky was molesting children in
the school's locker rooms will be
released Thursday, officials said
The report, commissioned by
school trustees following the
former assistant football coach's
arrest last year, is expected to re-
veal how the university treated
Sandusky after fielding com-
plaints about his encounters
with young boys in 1998 and
2001. It is also expected to cast
additional light on how Paterno
exerted control over the football
program while Sqndusky worked
under him and after Sandusky
retired from coaching.
. Not only could the report
shape how Paterno is remem-
bered, but it also could affect an
ongoing NCAA probe into the
school's conduct and criminal
.cases against two Penn State
The report is being issued by
former FBI director Louis Freeh,
who was hired by the university
to find out what school officials,
including Paterno, knew about
the child molester in their midst.
It will be published online at 9
a.m. Thursday. Investigators will
hold a news conference at 10
a.m. in Philadelphia to discuss
the findings and recommenda-
tions in the report.
The announcement came the
same day that ex-Penn State
president Graham i. Spanier's
lawyers said he told Freeh's in-
vestigators last week that he was
never informed that Sandusky
was spotted molesting a boy in-a
school shower. The lawyers were

"At no time in the more than

of an incident involving Jerry

view with Louis Freeh and his
colleagues," said a statement
from the lawyers, Peter Vaira and

Armstrong associates get lifetime USADA bans
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS FILE
Former cycling champion Lance Armstrong smiles during a
news conference at the Cedars-Sinai Hospital in Los Angeles
on Feb. 28, 2011. Armstrong is asking.a federal court to block
the latest doping charges against him.
The Associated Press
With Lance Armstrong still dig-
ging in for a legal fight, the U.S.
Anti-Doping Agency on Tuesday is-
sued lifetime sports bans to three
former staff members and con-
sultants on Armstrong's winning
Tour de France teams for doping

Marti (team trainer) worked for
Armstrong's.U.S. Postal Service and

been accused by USADA of partici-
pating in a vast doping conspiracy
on those teams during part or all of
Armstrong's seven Tour de France
victories from 1999-2005.
Armstrong also has been charged
and has declared his innocence.
Armstrong wants a federal judge
to block USADA's case against him
from going forward and is expected
to refile a lawsuit within days. An
Armstrong spokesman declined im-
mediate comment on the USADA
bans issued Tuesday.

MLB's HGH testing could be expanded to in-season
The Associated Press
KANSAS CITY, Mo.
- Major League Baseball
could start in-season test-
ing for human growth hor-
mone next year.
Each player was given, a
blood test for HGH during
spring training as part of.
the labor contract that was
agreed to in November,
which allows blood test-
ing during the offseason
and spring training, and if
there is reasonable cause.
Union head Michael
Weiner, speaking to the
Baseball Writers' Asso-
ciation of America before
Tuesday night's All-Star
game, said players will be
discussing whether to ex-
pand testing to the regular
season in 2013.
"We have just elected,
as we do in June of even-
number years, a new ex-
ecutive board, a new group
of player reps, and over the
second half of the season
we'll be trying to generate
what the consensus is,"
Weiner said. "There is at
least a possibility, I'm not
going to predict which way
it's going to go, but there's
at least a possibility that
we could have in-season
testing of some form as
soon as next year."
The blood testing that
began in spring train-
ing could be expanded to
the postseason, but that
doesn't appear likely to
happen this year.
"Every single 40-man
roster player was tested for
blood this spring. I believe,
I'm not certain; but believe
that is the most athletes
that have ever been tested
for blood in any sport at
any time, to have 1,200
tests," Weiner said. "What
our agreement says is that
the parties would get to-
gether to discuss the possi-
bility of extending random
testing into the postsea-
son. Those discussions will
happen at some point at
the end of the year."
No major leaguer has
been announced as testing
positive for HGH. Under
the new labor contract the
identity of substances that
cause positive tests are
HGH is detectable only
in blood tests, not in the
urine tests that baseball
has used since 2004.
Weiner also addressed
the case of Milwaukee out-
fielder Ryan Braun, whose
positive drug test last Oc-
tober was overturned by
arbitrator Shyam Das after
the NL MVP argued the
specified collection pro-
cedures were not followed.
The drug collector didn't
take the urine sample di-
rectly from Miller Park to a
Fe eral Express office.
-Players and manage-
ment have since rewritten
the collection procedures.
"I don't think it was re-
solved on a technicality.
Ryan doesn't think it was
resolved on a technical-
ity," Weiner said. "It was
a fundamental piece of
the agreement that all the
procedures have to be ob-
served and they weren't.
But that's in the eye of the
beholder whether you
want to call that a funda-
mental error, whether you
want to call that a techni-
cality. What we proved was
this was not a valid col-
lection, and therefore col-
lection had to be thrown
out, and the case did not
proceed to questions
beyond that." .
SWeiner gave his view on
Roger Clemens' acquittal
last month on charges, he
lied to Congress following
the release of the Mitchell
' Report. The seven-time Cy
Young Award winner re-
peatedly denied using ste-
roids and HGH.
"Roger Clemens was
exonerated legally, but

Dear Annie: I've been dating "Dayna" for
eight months, and we moved in together
three months ago. :
I'm normally a calm guy. However, two
months ago I made a mistake. I went out
drinking with friends and was dropped
off at home so drunk that I briefly
blacked out. I got into an argument with
Dayna and apparently gave her a black
eye. I spent a month in jail on domestic
battery charges. To my surprise, she did
not break up with me, although we no
longer live together.
I believe in my heart that Dayna.is the
one for me. On the night of the incident,
I had so, much alcohol in my system that
I'm pretty sure I would have fought with
anyone who crossed'my path.
Currently, I am enrolled in court-or-
dered classes on domestic violence.
Although I know I don't deserve her
anymore, Dayna is still by my side, and I
feel blessed for that. I made a promise to
God while in jail to put the bottle down
for good. I lost my job because of it, and
You will sleep at night if you count all of your
tricks correctly. Take this three-no-trump con-
tract. How should South plan the play after
West leads his fourth-highest spade?
North, holding 14 high-card points, expected
three no-trump to cruise home. He sensibly es-
chewed Stayman because he had 4-3-3-3 dis-
tribution. Also, if North-South had a 4-4 heart W
fit, game in that suit might fail because of bad 4
breaks, leading, for example, to .a defensive
South had only four top tricks: two spades and '
two diamonds. He could get six more winners 4
from hearts and clubs, but he would be losing
the lead twice. Maybe the defenders could es-
tablish and cash too many spade tricks.
It looked to South as though it could not hurt
if, he tried dummy's spade jack at trick one.
However, look what happened when East cov-
ered with the queen. Declarer ducked, and East
returned his second spade. Then, because West
had both missing aces, South lost three spades
and those aces.
Now go back to trick one and playlowfrom the
board. Assume East puts in his nine. Declarer
wins with his ace and, say, plays on clubs. West
wins and leads a second spade. Now South fi-
nesses dummy's jack. Yes, it loses, but East does
not have another spade to play.
it could have cosfme my girlfriend.
Alcoholism runs in my family. I'm a 27--
year-old college-educated guy who dealt
with problems by drinking because that's
what my family did. I'm determined to
break the cycle and have made the first
step toward that goal. I see life differently
now, and all I want to do is make Dayna
happy again. I know it will take time, but
I'm determined to make it right with her .
and her family. I love my girlfriend and
hope to marry her. How do we bounce
back from this horrific nightmare?
SAD AND DEPRESSED
Dear Sad: You need to rebuild Dayna's
trust. We are glad that you acknowledge
your drinking problem and have taken
steps to overcome it so you don't repeat
your mistakes. Dayna needs to know that
you will remain sober over the long haul,
through good and bad, and this takes
time. Find a job, get your own place, live
a solid life, and prove to Dayna that you
are a man she can respect.

Allmendinger denies knowingly
taking banned substance
The Associated Press
CHARLOTTE, N.C. Eager to re-
solve his suspension for a failed drug
test, AJ Allmendinger said Tuesday
that he has formally asked NASCAR
to test his second urine sample and
insisted that he would never "know-
ingly" take a prohibited substance.
Allmendinger was informed hours
before Saturday night's race at Day-
tona he had failed a random June 29
drug test. NASCAR does not disclose
what substance was found, and All-
mendinger and Penske Racing have
not revealed details.
In his first statement since the sus-
pension, Allmendinger confirmed
Tuesday that -he has requested his.
"B" sample be tested and is following
the steps listed in the 2012 rule book
regarding the drug testing policy.
"I fully respect NASCAR's drug us-,
age policy and the reasons they have
-it. I am hoping this can get resolved
as quickly as possible so that I can
get back to driving the No. 22 Penske
Racing Dodge," he said. "I am sorry
that this has :caused such a distrac-
tion for my Penske Racing team,
our sponsors and fans. Obviously I
would never do anything to jeopar-
dize my opportunity here at Penske
Racing or to my fellow drivers. I am
very conscious about my training
and health and would never know-
ingly take a prohibited drug."
Teamnowner Roger Penske indicat-
ed he's supporting Allmendinger.
"I'm more concerned about the in-
dividualthanI am thecircumstance,"
Penske said on NASCAR's Sirius
XM 'Radio channel. "Long-term,
one way or the other, he's a fighter,
he's a good race driver and I'm sure
he'll be fine. This is a speed bump
that neither one of us had contem-
plated, and We' have to deal with it
The 30-year-old driver was tested
at Kentucky Speedway and informed
eight days later by NASCAR's medi-
cal review officer that he had failed
the test. He had an opportunity to
explain the results to the MRO be-
fore NASCAR was informed of the

Racing official had a meeting with
NASCAR after the sanctioning body

was told of the result, and Allmend-
inger's suspension was announced
roughly 90 minutes before the start
of the race.
Penske Racing flew Sam Hornish
Jr. in from North Carolina to drive
AUmendinger's car, and Hornish
has been tabbed to drive again this
Allmendinger can only be re-in-
stated for competition if the "B"
sample is negative. Otherwise, his
only option is to complete a reha-
bilitation program designed by Aegis
Sciences Corp. in Nashville, Tehn.
Allmendinger has the right under
NASCAR's policy to watch the lab
test his "B" sample at Aegis, and he
also can have an independent expert
on hand. His statement gave no indi-
cation if he plans to attend the test.
Penske also told Sirius. XM the
organization is waiting for the pro-
cess to be completed before mak-
ing, any decisions on its first-year
"We're standing behind him until
we understand the results," Penske
said. "I can't really say today what,
that's going to be. I'm hoping the sec-
ond test will find him clean and we
can move on from this situation."
Allmendinger signed a one-year
contract in December to replace
Kurt Busch at Penske and the or-
ganization said as recently as two
weeks ago that a contract extension
"I think we'll have to assess the sit-
uation, it's not something you just do
overniglit," Penske said. "We'll look"
at the details arid understand it and
we'll make our moves accordingly.
The whole world's got an eyeball on
him. He's a very good guy and I hate
to see this."
