Marianna woman charged with prostitution

From staff reports
'Marianna resident Dom-
inique D. Jackson, 28, has
been charged with pros-
titution and her. traveling
companion faces a charge
of soliciting prostitution.
The man, 49-year-old
Ricky Thomas, of Quincy,
is also charged with driv-
ing under the influence.
According to a press

release from the Mari-
anna Police Department,
officers with that agency
noticed a gray Chevrolet

,truck driving around two
closed liquor stores Big
Star on Penn Avenue and
LT Liquors on Lafayette
Street around 11 p.m.
on Tuesday and activated
a siren when the truck was
seen at the Lafayette Street
With Thomas behind the
wheel, the vehicle stopped,
and one of the officers
who approached the car

reported seeing Thomas
give Jackson a $20 bill. The
officer inquired about the
exchange. According to the
press release, Thomas told
officers that he had given
Jackson the money in ex-
change for sex.
In a complaint police
filed in the case, officers
also reported that Jackson
had a different story; she
said the money was for the

repayment of a loan she
had made to Thomas last
week. Saying she had only
known Thomas about two
months, she told officers
they were simply riding
around looking for a place
to drink, according to the
complaint. Thomas had
told officers that they were
riding around the liquor
stores looking for one that
was still open for business.

According to the press
release, an officer also re-
ported a strong odor of
alcohol 'coming from the
vehicle and the complaint
also stated that the officer
smelled alcohol on the
driver's breath. Officers re-
ported finding open con-
tainers of beer. Thomas
was given a field sobriety
test and was subsequently
charged with DUI.

director wins

service award
From staff reports
Jackson County Emergency Manage-
ment Director Rodney Andreasen has
won a top service award from an as-
sociation of his peers and, as an hon-
oree, will get to meet Gov. Rick Scott
and members of the Florida Cabinet
next month in a recognition and reso-
lution ceremony at the state capitol in
Andreasen officially received the 2013
Chad Reed Emergency Management
Professional of the Year award earlier
this month at the annual Florida Emer-
gency Preparedness Association confer-
ence in Orlando. It is the highest recog-
nition of achievement presented by the
organization and goes to the emergen-
cy manager judged to have contributed
the most to the preparedness opera-
tions of the state as a whole and of the
local jurisdiction he or she serves.
Andreasen said he was shocked to
hear his name called when the award
was presented and said he considers it
one of his most valued possessions.
"It's a very big honor," he said. "I was
kind of thrown back by it. It's nice to be
recognized byyour peers this way. There
are a lot of great managers out there and
for them to choose me, it means a lot."
Andreasen has been the Jackson
County Emergency Management Di-
rector for 12 years and has overseen
many projects which enhanced the
emergency management operations of
the county, including the installation of
a National Weather Service transmitter
which brings weather alerts to the local
In 2010, Andreasen received the Emer-
gency' Management Award from the
Governor's Hurricane Conference or-
ganization, with then-Governor Charlie
Crist presenting that award to him.

partment of Homeland Security and
the Naval Post Graduate School chose
him as a candidate to attend the Cen-
ter for Homeland Security and Defense

Garden Club tree sale begins March 1


The Marianna Garden Club will be selling
hundreds of baby crepe myrtle and native
white dogwood trees for $1 each as March
gets under way. The bare root seedlings
will be available from 8 a.m. until 4 p.m. on
March 1-2 in front of Farmers Furniture near
Grocery Outlet.
This is the garden club's biggest fundraiser
of the year, said Muriel Turner, chairperson
of the tree sales drive. She is expecting 800
trees of each kind to arrive at her doorstep
the Monday before the sale. She'll store them
in her garage until bright and early on March
1. They will arrive in shipping packages that
will keep them safe and moist until the sale,

and that material will be removed just before
the trees are taken to the market place. Gar-
den club members will then wrap the roots in
damp newspaper for each buyer so that they
can be kept moist until planting.
Because the trees are so immature, they'll
consist mainly of a stick and strings of roots,
giving the new owners an opportunity to tru-
ly nurture the trees themselves from seedling
to maturity.
Turner said buyers can expect to see the
trees leaf in their first year and that they
will flower in a few years time. They can be
planted immediately, she said, as they are
currently dormant and can tolerate extreme
cold. Or, planting can be delayed until closer

Matthew Suggs earns Eagle Scout rank

Special to the Flot idan

Matthew Skylar Suggs,
17-year-old son of Michael
and Jeanne Suggs, was
honored on Jan. 26 during
a special Eagle Scout Court
of Honor ceremony at the
First United Methodist
Church in Marianna.
Skylar was awarded the
rank of Eagle Scout in rec-
ognition of his successful
completion of all require-
ments for scouting's high-
est rank. Skylar is .a junior
at Marianna High School
and will graduate next
year. After graduation, he
plans to attend Chipola
College and receive an As-
sociate of Arts degree and
then transfer to a univer-
sity that has a pharmacy
program. He hopes to be-
come a pharmacist and
maybe open his own phar-
macy one day.
Skylar has been in scout-
ing since he was six years
old. He was a Tiger Cub,
Cub Scout, and Webelo
Scout, and has held lead-
ership positions as a Boy
Scout in Troop 3 of Quar-
termaster, Scribe and
Welcome and introduc-
tion was given by Skylar's
father, Assistant Scoutmas-
ter Michael Suggs. Troop 3
Advancement Coordina-
tor Barry Tillman officially
opened the program, fol-
lowed by the presentation
of the colors by the Troop
3 Honor Guard members
Cameron Powell, Daniel
Tillman, Chad Case, Ja-
cob Lafferty, Noah McAr-
thur and Keary Nichols.
Tiger Patrol Leader Daniel
Tillman led the group in
reciting the Pledge of Al-
legiance, Scout Oath and
Scout Law, while Quarter-
master Cameron' Powell
gave the invocation.
Troop 3 Leader and Trea-
surer Andy Campbell de-
scribed Skylar's "Journey
to Eagle Scout" and his im-
pressive Eagle Scout proj-
ect. Skylar's journey start-
ed when he crossed over
from Cub Scouts to Boy
Scouts in 2001. As a Boy
Scout, he hiked, camped
and learned to cook on an
open fire. He worked on
projects to help keep his
community clean and sold
Boy Scout popcorn to help
raise needed funds..
To earn Eagle rank, Skylar
had to earn 21 total merit

badges, which include 11
required and 10 elective
badges. The 11 required
badges dealt directly with
Skylar's community, na-
tion and world. The Per-
sonal Management merit
badge taught money man-
agement, including how
to save and spend wisely.
Skylar went beyond what
was required by earning a
total of 33 merit badges.
Skylar's brother, Allen
Suggs, who earned his Eagle
Scout rank five years ago,
presented an Eagle Scout
challenge to Skylar. Allen
stated that the foremost
responsibility of an Eagle
Scout is to live with honor,
which is the foundation of
character. An Eagle Scout
lives honorably, not only
because honor is impor-
tant to him, but because of
the vital significance of the
example he sets for other
The second obligation
is loyalty. A scout is true
to his family, his lead-
ers, friends, school and
nation. This also means
devotion to community, to
country, one's own ideals
and to God.
The third obligation is
to be courageous. Bravery

means not only the cour-
age to face physical dan-
ger, but the determination
to stand up for what is
right. Trusting in God, with
faith in his fellow man, he
looks forward to each day,
seeking his share of the
world's work to do.
A fourth obligation is to
be cheerful, and a final ob-
ligation is service. The Ea-
gle Scout extends a help-
ing hand to those who still
toil up scouting's trail. The
Eagle stands as protec-
tor of the weak and help-
less. He aids and comforts
the unfortunate and the
oppressed. He will always
"Be Prepared" to put forth
his best.
Troop 3 Scoutmaster Bill
Kleinhans led the Eagle
Scout pinning, presenta-
tion of the Eagle Scout
neckerchief and Eagle
badge award. "Mr. K", as
he is affectionately called,
expressed his sincere con-
gratulations and pride in
recognizing Skvlar for his
hard work and dedication
throughout his years in
scouting. Mrs. Amy Nor-
ville, mother of Eagle Scout
Matt Norville, read "An
Eagle Mom's Poem." Skylar
presented pins to both of

Michael and Jeanne Suggs,
in appreciation for their
guidance, support and love
shown to him throughout
his life and during his jour-

Several awards were
bestowed upon Skylar,
with special guests in at-
tendance to make those
presentations. Lieuten-
ant Mark Clements of the
Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission
presented Skylar with a
special scouting Achieve-
ment Award for "Gaining
an important understand-
ing of natural resource
conservation along the
way of earning your Boy
Scout of America's Eagle
Scout Award." Skylar was

BCF Trustees celebrate Platinum Jubilee

Special to the Floridan

The Board of Trustees
of The Baptist College of
Florida met in Graceville
on Jan. 24-25. "One of the
htop items for the meeting
,was the celebration of our
Platinum Jubilee," says
SBCF President Thomas A.
Kinchen, reflecting on the
two days filled with, ac-
tivities. "For seventy years
-lour Lord has showered
" His blessings on this great
school, and we wanted

to take the opportunity
to give Him all honor and
Established in Lakeland,
Fla.,.in 1943, The Baptist
College of Florida has op-
erated in Graceville since
1953. The college became
part of the Florida Baptist
Convention's mission ef-
fort in 1957. In addition
to the Graceville home
campus, BCF has loca-
tions in Pensacola, Pana-
ma City, Orlando, Central
Florida and Jacksonville.

Internationally, the school
has programs in Brazil
and Burkina Faso in West
According to Kinchen,
one major highlight of the
trustee meeting and cele-
bration was the dedication
of a new wellness center
on campus. The state-of-
the-art center has an in-
door handball/racquetball
court, cardio and weight
.rooms, exercise rooms,
an indoor walking track,
locker rooms and courts

for multiple intramural
and intercollegiate athletic
events. The wellness cen-
ter came as the result of a
generous donation from a
trustee who has strongly
supported the college.
BCF trustees received re-
ports from several key ar-
eas of college life. The audit
report showed an "unqual-
ified" opinion which is
the highest report avail-
able for an institution.
Once again the college
completed the fiscal year

operating completely
"in the black." Kinchen
noted that this is due to
God's blessings and the
great stewardship of fac-
ulty and staff. In the area
of academic curriculum,
trustees were informed
of recent additions to the
curriculum, as well as
plans for future additions.
President Kinchen shared
plans to bring to the an-
nual meeting in May a new
long range plan entitled
"20/20 Vision."

New trustees welcomed
by the board included:
Dennis Brown, Niceville;
Chris Coram, Jacksonville;
Bill Flannigan, Pensacola;
Dianne Lovett, Mt. Dora;
Tim Maynard, Jackson-
ville; Christie Ross, Crest-
view and Charles Wafren,
Starke. Newly elected of-
ficers of the board include:
Chairman Wayne Briant,
Sarasota; Vice Chairman
Kenric Conway, Panama
City and Secretary Don
McLaughlin, Tallahassee.

BCF Women's Ensemble leads worship for retreat

Special to the Floridan

The Baptist College of Florida Women's
Ensemble, one of the audition-only vocal
groups on the campus, recently led wor-
ship and performed for a women's retreat
held at the First Baptist Church of Milton.
On Friday, Feb.l, the ensemble guided
retreat participants in singing praise and
worship songs including "Desert Song"
and "Alive in Us," and then performed
an ensemble piece titled "Only God." On
Saturday morning, the ladies led during
a time of inspirational praise and wor-
ship followed by a special performance of
"Stand Up and Bless the Lord" and "The
Perfect Wisdom of Our God." Cyndi Grace
from Clinton, Miss., was the featured
speaker of the event, and the songs the
ladies chose coincided perfectly with her
"I am very proud of the BCF Women's

Ensemble for their worship leadership at
the women's conference," stated BCF Pro-
fessor Buford Cox. "They have represent-
ed our Lord and BCF extremely well."
The BCF Women's Ensemble is con-
ducted by Cox and accompanied by
Linda Vaughn. The ensemble's extraordi-
nary performances include gospel songs,
hymn arrangements, spirituals and con-
temporary sacred songs.
The Women's Ensemble will be rep-
resenting BCF in multiple venues this
spring including high schools, colleges,
churches, and community and civic
events. Their next performance will be
Sunday, March 17, at Shady Grove Baptist
Church in Bonifay.

mance dates, or to schedule the Women's
Ensemble for a performance, contact Cox

Amazing Grace

World Anglicans

welcome leader

O n Monday, in
ceremonies at
London's St.
Paul's Cathedral, Justin
Welby, 57, a former oil
executive, was installed
as the 105th Archbishop
of Canterbury, leader of
the Church of England
and symbolic head of
the 77 million-member
worldwide Anglican
He succeeds Rowan
Williams, who resigned
the post after 10 years.
Welby immediately in-
herits a nationwide con-
troversy over legitimizing
gay marriage, which is
now being debated by
the British Parliament.
The government has
already agreed that,
whatever its decision, the
Anglican Church will not
be required to preside
over the marriage of
same-sex couples. The
new archbishop has
repeatedly declared his
support for the Church's
traditional prohibition of
same-spx marriage.
Nevertheless, he will
face lingering controver-
sies thin the church
over Ordaining women
bishops and accepting
clergy in active same-sex
relationships. Alongside
these policy concerns,
he vill also confront the
erosion of Christian faith
The Independent
newspaper cites "latest
:snsus figures" that show
ow every day as many
s1,100 fewer British
people describe them-
elves as "Christian."
SAt his installation,, the
;Archbishop of York, John
iSentamu, warned his
new colleague that he
would lead the church in
an age of selfishness and

Never was

In the words of the late
George Harrison, 'I, me,
During the ceremony,
Welby pledged to
"promote unity, peace
and love," and to guide
the church from "error."
Lacking direct authority
to direct the worldwide
Anglican Communion,
the new archbishop must
lead by example and
The Independent news-
paper notes that "in the
'Global South' Angli-
can dioceses predomi-
nantly in Africa, Latin
America and Asia op-
position to (and at times
outward discrimination
against) gay men and
women is commonplace
among church leaders,
with some threatening to
create a 'church within
a church' if more liberal
dioceses continue to wel-
come gay congregants
and clergy."
The Episcopal Church
is the American member
of the worldwide Angli-
can Communion. It has
already suffered the loss

tions due to continuing

BCF receives online education approval

Special to the Floridan

The Baptist College of
Florida in Graceville has
been approved to provide
college courses through
electronic delivery since
1999. But according to
BCF President Thomas A.
Kinchen, the college re-
ceived a tremendous boost
in its efforts from a recent
letter received from its pri-
mary accreditation agency.
In the letter dated Jan. 22,
the President of the Com-
mission on Colleges .of
the Southern Association
of Colleges and Schools
noted The Baptist College
of Florida has approval to
move forward with offer-
ing all of its courses and
degree programs online.
"This is a watershed mo-
ment for us," Kinchen ac-
knowledged. "We can now
offer online delivery for
courses in all of our degree
programs as well as entire
degree programs online.
We have been working
toward this for over four-
teen years, and I am abso-
lutely delighted with this
The newly-approved

program means that a
greater number of students
will be able to pursue top-
quality, fully-accredited
education without relocat-
ing from their homes and
places of service.
"We want all of our pro-
grams to be 'ministry
friendly' so that students
can serve while learning
and learn while serving,"
Kinchen said.
Accordingly, the recently
approved Master of Arts
in Christian Studies and
Master of Arts in Music
and Worship Leadership
each have major compo-
nents that are completed
online. Once approval is
received from the Florida
Department of Education,
the college is prepared to
begin the new online pro-
gramming immediately.
If completing a degree or
taking classes online from
the comfort of home or
current ministry location is
appealing to you, contact
BCF at 263-3261 ext. 460
or access the website at and re-
quest more information
on this tremendous educa-
tional opportunity.

Prospective students welcome the opportunity of taking all of
their courses online at The Baptist College of Florida.

Anglicans swimming the Tiber, one year later

It's natural for any employee to
want to know just how com-
mitted the big boss is to the
company's future and, especially, to
the expansion project that includes
his job.
So, even though Pope Benedict XVI
didn't make it to America in person,
the Rev. Jason Catania still appre-
ciated the message he sent to the
former Episcopal priests and others
who swam the Tiber to Rome after
the pontiff's controversial "Anglica-
norum Coetibus ("groups of Angli-
cans") pronouncement in 2009.
"We didn't just wake up one morn-
ing last year and say, 'Why don't we
join the Catholic Church?' Many of
us have made personal and finan-
cial sacrifices over the years to do
this," said Catania, who leads Mount
Calvary Church in Baltimore.

This was the first American parish
that voted to enter one of the new
"personal ordinariates"
the equivalent of
nationwide dioceses
that would allow
Anglicans to retain
key elements of their
liturgy, music, art and
other traditions, such
Ter y as married priests.
Mattingly "We were very inten-
tional and took many
steps toward Rome on this journey,"
he said. "Now we're starting to see
the results of the Vatican's strategic
step toward us."
Clergy and supporters of the
Ordinariate of the Chair of St. -
Peter gathered at its home base in
Houston last week to mark the first
anniversary of this outreach effort

in America. Archbishop Gerhard
Ludwig Muller, the new leader of the
Vatican's powerful Congregation for
the Doctrine of the Faith, offered his
share of theological commentary on
this project, but made it clear that
his main message was personal.
"For most of you, this has been a
journey into the unknown. ... I want
you to know that the Holy Father
is following with great interest the
establishment and development of
the ordinariate," he said.
In addition to the Anglican doubt-
ers and all those who accused the
pope of being "an ecumenical
poacher," the special arrangements
built into these ordinariates have
caused skepticism among some
Catholics. However, there is no easy
way to begin closing a schism that
has lasted for centuries.

After a dominant regular sea-
son that featured 22 wins to just
two defeats against 6A Alabama
foes, the Malone Tigers will be-
gin their journey to what they
hope ends up in a state title
tonight when they take on the
Central Jaguars in the semifinals
of the District 1-1A tournament
in Milton.
Malone dominated the district
during the regular season, fin-
ishing 10-0 with only one close
call all year, a 60-57 road win
over the Paxton Bobcats, who
will play Bethlehem in the other
semifinal tonight.
TheTigers tooktheir two meet-
ings with the Jaguars this year by
big margins, winning 93-39 Dec.
15 in Malone and 88-66 on Jan.
5 in Milton.
But despite the 22-point mar-
gin of win in the second match-
up, Malone led just 43-41 at half-
time, and Tigers coach Steven
Welch said he knows that this
game will not be,a cake-walk for
his club.
"That was a very competitive
game early," the coach said of
the Jan. 5 game. "They'll be sky

The Marianna Bulldogs will

Walton Braves in the semifinals
of the District 4-1A tournament.
Marianna (15-10) comes in
having already won both regular
season meetings against Walton
(13-7), taking the first matchup
59-46 on Dec. 7 at home, and the
second 55-47 on the road on Jan.
But the Bulldogs will need to
complete the difficult task of tak-
ing three straight victories over a
quality opponent if they want to
keep their season going.
"It's hard to beat someone like
that once, let alone three times,"
Marianna coach Travis Blanton
said of the Braves. "By the third
time, you expect that they'll do
stuff better and keep closing the
gap. You just hope the gap isn't

"It was a good feeling to win," Obert
said. "It had been a while. A couple of the
kids even said that after the game. As far

that every team we play in dis-

they're not expected to win.

Chipola Baseball

)UDMI I IE OurnuTu
Dozens of former Chipola College baseball players-including Major League Homerun
champion Jose Bautista-are expected to return to their alma mater Saturday for the sixth
annual Chipola Baseball Alumni event. Here, Jose Bautista (center) of the Toronto Blue

Indians set for sixth

Alumni Weekend


The Chipola Indians will host its Sixth
Annual Baseball Alumni Weekend on
Saturday featuring an alumni home run
derby, an alumni game, and an auto-
graph session that includes former Indi-
ans and current Major League Baseball
players Jose Bautista and Jeff Mathis..
Chipola will open the weekend Friday
with games against Shelton State at 11
a.m., andWalters State at 2 p.m., and will
begin Saturday's events with another
game againstWalters State at 10 a.m.
The home run derby will be at 1 p.m.,
followed by the alumni game and auto-
-graph session, with a $100 per plate Pro
Baseball Dinner and Auction set for 6
p.m. later that night at Citizens Lodge in
Indians coach Jeff Johnson said the
weekend is always special and memo-
rable for him and his former players.
"You get a lot of pride knowing that
you've got guys like this who respect the
program come back and take
time out of their schedule to do this," he,
said. "It's not only the professional base-
ball players, but guys who are success-
ful in business and other things as well.
It's.always great to see those guys and
get caught up with them. It's just a great
chance to see everybody again."
Mathis is a former Marianna Bulldogs
player who has spent seven seasons in
the majors, and will be returning to Flor-
ida for his eighth'season as a member of
the Miami Mdrlins.

Bautista, who played for the Indians in
2000 and 2001, has gone on to make three
All-Star teams with the Toronto Blue Jays
and win back to back home run crowns,
hitting 54 in 2010 and 43 in 2011.
He has 183 round-trippers for his
"For Joseto take time out of his sched-
ule to be for thisis great, and
I hope the community around Marianna
understands that this isn't easy for him
to do," Johnson said. "To get a chance to
come see that guy swing the bat is a great
thing for the people in our area."
As fai as the baseball goes, the Indians,
who are ranked No. 20 in the NJCAA poll,
will get stiff tests from the likes of Shel-
ton State and Walters State, with the lat-
ter currently ranked 12't in the country.
"Both of these teams are perennially
two of the top 15 teams in the country
over the last six or eight years, so it will
be good competition for us," Johnson
said. "Both teams have good arms and
pitch well, so I hope we've made some
strides from last week to this week. We
need to swing the bat better, command
the ball better on the mound, and get
our defense fixed as well."
Preston Johnson will start on the
mound today for the first game against
Shelton State, with Michael Mader to
go in the'second game against Walters
Carlos Misell will get the call in Satur.-
day's game.
The Indians come in with a record of 5-
4 after taking a 5-3 victory over Wallace-
Dothan on Tuesday.


Sneads Basketball

Pirates confident heading

into semifinal matchup


The Sneads Pirates will
try to extend their season
tonight when they take on
the Wewahitchka Gators in
the semifinals of the Dis-
trict 3-1A tournament in
Sneads (13-12) advanced
to the semifinals with a 76-
45 win over Ponce de Leon
on Tuesday night in the
quarterfinals, while Wewa-
hitchka (18-7) took a 73-61
win over Altha in its quar-
terfinal matchup.
The teams split their two
regular season games, with
the Gators winning 80-64
on Dec. 13 at home, and
the Pirates taking an 82-
77 overtime win Jan. 10 at
The Pirates played both
games with starting point
guard Devin Hayes out
with injury and before 6-
foqt-6 sophomore Alfonso
Brown became eligible.
Sneads is 4-3 since get-
ting its full complement of
players together in mid-
January, with the losses
coming to Malone, Mari-
anna, and to Graceville on
a buzzer-beater by Marquis
But Pirates coach Kelvin
Johnson said that he feels
very good about the way
his team is playing heading
into the postseason.
"We're pretty confident
because we've been play-
ing well lately. We've got
everybody healthy and out
there, so we like our chanc-
es," he said.
.The addition of Brown
could come in handy for
the Pirates against a We-
wahitchka team that hasn't
given them trouble on the
offensive glass in the two
regular season meetings.
Johnson said his team's
inability to keep the Ga-
tors off of the boards was

the primary reason for the
"We've got to keep them
from getting a bunch of
rebounds. It has to be one
shot and out. That's how
they beat us," he said.
"They kept crashing the
boards and putting it back.
We couldn't get a defen-
sive rebound. If we don't
keep them from doing that
again, we'll be in trouble."
The Pirates had trouble
in particular dealing with
6-foot-3 senior post play-
er Raheem Wright, who
posted 27 points and 12
rebounds in the first meet-
ing and 34 points and 13
boards in the second.
But to be fair to Sneads,
few .teams have had an-
swers this season for
Wright, who is averaging 26
points and 12.3 rebounds
on 60 percent shooting.
"He's a guy who can score
really any time he touches
the ball," Johnson said of
Wright. "I really think he's
the best player in our dis-
trict. He makes everything
look easy. He handles the
ball so well and jumps
real high. He's just really
hard to stop once he gets
his hands on the ball. And
when he gets doubled, it
leaves somebody else on
their team open and they
all shoot the ball real well."
Clay Sasser, Micah Lister,
and Tony Buckley-Paige
have done most of the

damage from long dis-
tance for the Gators this
year, combining to make
106 three-pointers for the
Sasser is second on the
team with 14 points per
game, while junior post
player Javar Hill is averag-
ing seven points and 10.1
rebounds per game.
The Pirates typically find
a bit more balance in their
scoring, relying on junior
forward Darius Williams,
sophomore guard-forward
JeremyWert, and the senior
Hayes to do much of the of-
fensive heavy lifting, while
also getting contributions
from the likes of Brown,
junior forward Dustin Pit-
tman, and senior guard
Jalon Daniels.
"This group I've got has
real good chemistry with
each other. ,No one is real
selfish," Johnson said.
"They don't really care who
scores. Usually, it's a differ-
ent person each game that
does the scoring depend-
ing on what the defense is
running. If we,don't turn
the ball over, make good
decisions, and shoot the
ball well, we should come
out OK."
The Pirates will need an-
other good effort against
a Wewahitchka team that
has shown it can score with
anyone, or else the season
will come to an abrupt
"I think the guys under-
stand that," Johnson said.
"I told the boys that there
are no easy games from
here on out, and it's not
necessarily the best team
that moves on but the team
that plays the best on that
day. But they're real hungry
and real confident. I think
we're going to do well."

final between Graceville

don't want to be uptight,"
Welch' said. "It's unique
because you've got to have
fun and play hard and all
that, but in the back of
your mind, you know that
if you lose you, then you
go home. You can't let that
get to you. All we've got to
do is go play hard and have
fun together. If we play like
we're capable, I think we'll
be fine."

With a team that has
seven seniors, as well as
a junior with four years
varsity experience and a
sophomore with three,
one would think that deal-
ing with outside pressures
would be less of an issue
for the Tigers.
That's certainly what
Welch is banking on.
"These guys have been in
some battles on the road
throughout their 'career.
My core guys have a ton of
"I hope that should negate

some of their home-court
advantage. My guys have
been talking about being
on a mission since the first
practice of the year. Now
the time is here and they
have to put their money
where they mouth is."
The genesis of that mis-
sion was a home play-
off loss to eventual state
champion Chipley in the
regional final last season,
a loss that stuck with the
Tigers throughout the off-
season and has served as
fuel for a dominant regular

season this year.
After a 22 wins and a per-
fect run through the dis-
trict, the real season, the
one the Tigers have been
waiting on all year, has fi-
nally arrived.
"This is a brand-new
season," Welch said. "We
started out saying that
we're preparing 364 days
for one day, and Friday is
that day. We've got to have
that attitude from here on
out that it's a one-game
season. That's what we've
talked about from the be-

ginning, as well as how the
season ended last year. We
lost on our home floor and
it was our only loss to an
in-state team all year. I'm
not saying the better team
didn't win, but at the same
time we felt like there were
some things we could've
done to change the out-
come. So our message is to
make sure you're not the

guy who says 'I messed up'
in the locker room after the
"Play hard every posses-
sion, have accountability
for every possession, and
have each other's back. If
we do that, then we should
be fine."
The championship game

closed to the point where
they end up beating you."
SThe coach said that de-
spite the final margins
of the two regular sea-
son games, each could've
gone the other way, and
he insisted that his team's
margin for error is not that
great against the Braves.
"It was a close game
both times, and with the
way they can shoot it from
the three-point line, they
could easily make up those
points," Blanton said. "The

style that Walton plays is
difficult to prepare for, and
they have such a dynamic
player like (6-foot-3 senior
guard Deshun Tucker) who
can get you 30 or 35 points
every night. It's going to be
a challenge."
Tucker is one of the top
scorers in the area, but he
was limited to just seven
points in the first match-
up with Marianna before
breaking out with 26 in the
second meeting.
Keeping him under
wraps will be a key for the
Bulldogs, their coach said.
"The kid is an exceptional
player. With somebody like

that, you just hope they
don't shoot it that well,"
Blanton said. "You have to
stay in between him and
the basket, but he's just so
creative in the way he does
things. It's like trying to
deal with '(Jerodd) Blount
in Cottondale. He's going
to score; you just hope it's
25 instead of 35."
Marianna is coming
off of a solid road
performance against
Cottondale on Jan. 31 in
a 72-58 win, and Blanton
said that the Bulldogs will
need to continue to do the
fundamental things that
have served them well

in victory.
"We have to take care
of the ball and limit our
turnovers, and hope we
can limit them to one shot
at the basket," the coach
said. "When' they score
it, we have to make them
earn it, and we have to try
to keep them from getting
easy baskets. Walton plays
so fast, but if you can limit
your turnovers, you can
limit their opportunities
on offense. If you don't,
then they'll hurt you."
The winner of the game
will take on Pensacola
Catholic on Saturday night
at 7 p.m. in the title game.

Armstrong sued for $12 million bonus

The Associated Press

AUSTIN, Texas A Dal-
las promotions company
sued Lance Armstrong on
Thursday, demanding he
repay $12 million in bo-
nuses and fees it paid him
for winning the Tour de
SCA Promotions had
tried in a 2005 legal dispute
over the bonuses to prove
Armstrong cheated to win
before it ultimately settled
and paid him.
Armstrong recently ac-
knowledged using perfor-'
mance-enhancing drugs
after the U.S. Anti-Doping
Agency in 2012 detailed a

sophisticated doping pro-
gram 'by his Armstrong's
teams. Arm-
strong was
stripped of
his seven
Tour de
France vic-
tories and
Armstrong given a life-
time' ban
from sports. Now, the com-
pany contends in its law-
suit, Armstrong and agent
Bill Stapleton lied and con-
spired to cheat SCA out of
millions. The lawsuit notes
that Armstrong repeat-
edly testified under oath
in the 2005 dispute that
he did not use steroids,

Other drugs or blood dop-
ing methods to win, all of
which he now admits to
"It is time now for Mr.
Armstrong to face the con-
sequences of his actions,"
said the lawsuit, which
demands a jury trial. "He
admits he doped; he ad-
mits he bullied people; he
admits he lied."
Armstrong won the
Tour de France every year
from 1999-2005. The SCA
lawsuit seeks to recover
$9.5 million in bonuses
for winning the race from
2002-2004 and another $2.5
million paid to Armstrong
for other costs and fees.

with Northwest Florida

The top three finishers in

their own in the process.

us the last month of the

Tigers. "We've been strug-
gling, but I think the envi-

good. I feel like the gym
will be pretty loaded and

Anderson echoed Obert's

the familiarity between
the teams and coaches, it
will simply come down to
which team's players can

the coach said., "I feel
like both teams will be

one of those games where

Annie's Mailbox

Dear Annie: My parents have always
favored my oldest brother. My other
two siblings and I all feel this way, so it's
pretty much a given.
My parents and I have never had an
easy relationship. While I've obeyed
their rules, maintained their standards
and respected their wishes, I have never
conformed to their ideals, so I've been
branded as "rebellious." When I con-
fronted them about their favoritism, they
absolutely denied treating my brother
any better than the rest of us. They also
told me I have a rebellious heart. How
can I make them realize that they do
indeed show favoritism, and that I am


There are times when it is easier to
play against good players. They are reli-
able. If they can do something beneficial for
themselves, they will; they will not make
silly errors. Beginners are not trustworthy.
That is relevant in this deal, where South is
an expert. He is in seven hearts. West leads a
trump. What should South do, and how should
West discard?
After South opened one heart, North under-
standably drove into the grand slam after two
doses of Blackwood.
Despite all of the high-card points, the con-
tract looks impossible declarer has only 12
tricks. His only chance is to run winners and
hope for a misdefense.
At the table, South took all of his trumps, dis-
carding a spade from the board. West calmly
pitched all of his diamonds. This persuaded
East to throw diamonds as well.
Then came dummy's diamond winners.
East let go of three clubs; West released one
spade and one club. But West was not sure
what to do on the last diamond.
Eventually, not wanting to come down to
queen-doubleton in clubs, he discarded a sec-
ond spade. But now the missing spades were
2-2 and declarer gained a 13th trick.
What did West overlook?
If South had started with three clubs, he
would have ruffed the third on the board to
gain an extra trump trick.
Also, for a sophisticated pair, when East threw
clubs, he should have played first the two, dis-
couraging, then the seven or eight, high to
show a remaining even number.

not rebellious?

Dear Tired: Those are tough challenges
and will likely take a while to accomplish.
Parents are reluctant to admit when they
favor one child over another and often
don't see it. And it takes time and effort
- from all of you for parents to alter
their perceptions of a child's "nature."
Talk to your parents politely and calmly.
Explain that you aren't looking to be con-
frontational. Ask them to tell you more
specifically what they need from you so
you can work on it. We hope the honest
question will open their minds.

TAURUS (April 20-May
20) Most of your associ-
ates had better step aside
when they see you coming,
because once you get on a
roll, there will be no stop-
ping you.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20)
-You will have no trouble
accomplishing whatever
you set your mind to. Enjoy
the ride.
CANCER (June 21-July22)
- Putting yourself out for
others without hesitation
will make you feel good,
mostly because you won't
make them feel obligated
to you in the process.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)
- All you have to do to
perform some remarkable
feats is believe in yourself
to the fullest.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
- If there is an important
agreement that you need
to negotiate, you're likely
to find this to be an excel-
lent day to do so.

to get together to discuss
a matter that he or she be-

Blizzard threatens Northeast; 2 feet feared

The Associated Press

BOSTON A blizzard of
potentiallyhistoric propor-
tions threatened to strike
the Northeast with a ven-
geance Friday, with up to
2 feet of snow feared along
the densely populated In-
terstate 95 corridor from
the New York City area to
Boston and beyond.
From Pennsylvania to
Maine, people rushed to
stock up on food, shovels
and other supplies, and
road crews readied salt
and sand, halfway through
what had been a merciful
Before the first snowflake
had even fallen, Boston,
Providence, R.I., Hartford,
Conn., and other New
England cities canceled
school Friday, and air-
lines scratched more than
1,700 flights, with the dis-
ruptions certain to ripple
across the U.S.
Forecasters said this
could be one for the record
"This one doesn't come
along every day. This is go-
ing to be a dangerous win-
ter storm," said Alan Dun-
ham, meteorologist for the
National Weather Service

there by Friday afternoon
and don't plan on leaving."

ing at night and into Sat-
urday. Wind gusts could
reach 65 mph. Widespread
power failures were feared,
along with flooding in
coastal areas still recover-
ing from Superstorm San-
dy in October.
Boston could get more
than 2 feet of snow, while
New York City was expect-
ing 10 to 14 inches. Mayor

Michael Bloomberg said
plows and 250,000 tons
of salt were being put on
standby. To the south, Phil-
adelphia was looking at a
possible 4 to 6 inches.
"We hope forecasts are
exaggerating the amount
of snow, but you never can
tell," Bloomberg said, add-
ing that at least the bad
weather is arriving on a
weekend, when the traffic

is lighter and snowplows
can clean up the streets
more easily.
Amtrak said its North-
east trains will stop run-
ning Friday afternoon. The
organizers of New York's
Fashion Week a closely
watched series of fashion
shows held under a big tent
- said they will have extra
crews to help with snow
removal and will turn up
the heat and add an extra
layer to the venue.
Blizzard warnings were
posted for parts of New
Jersey and NewYork's Long
Island, as well as portions
of Massachusetts, Rhode
Island and Connecticut,
including Hartford, New
Haven, Conn., and Provi-
dence. The warnings ex-
tended into New Hamp-
shire and Maine.
In New England, it could
prove to be among the top
10 snowstorms in history,
and perhaps even break
Boston's record of 27.6
inches, set in 2003, fore-
casters said. The last major
snowfall in southern New
England was well over a
year ago the Halloween
storm of 2011.
Dunham said southern
New England has seen less
than half its normal snow-
fall this season, but "we're
going to catch up in a heck
of a hurry." He added:
"Everybody's going to get
plastered with snow."

NTSB: 787 battery approval should be reconsidered

The plane that caught
fire in Boston was deliv-

the fire and had recorded
only 169 flight hours over
22 flights.
"There have now been
