The trial for Jeremy Donye Walker, 25, starts Tuesday on charges of aggravated assault on a law enforcement ofcer and resisting arrest. David Borst was the Fruitland Park police deputy chief and had been listed as a witness for the prosecution in the trial.

Another died after being placed in a chokehold. All died at the hands of police and all have been united by one thing: the killing of Michael Brown. Details may differ, circum stances of their deaths may re main unknown, but the out rage that erupted after the Aug. 9 fatal shooting of the unarmed, black 18-year-old by a white of cer in Ferguson, Missouri, has become a rallying cry in pro tests over police killings across the nation. While theres been nothing approaching the violence seen in the St. Louis suburb, demon strations fueled by a sense of injustice and buoyed with the help of social media have rolled across cities, regardless of whether the shootings took place last week or last month. The spark, said Garrett Dun can, an associate professor of education and African-Ameri can studies at Washington Uni versity in St. Louis, was how Ferguson police bungled the af termath of Browns killing, lead ing to rioting and looting in the face of a heavily armed police force and, later, the National Guard.

CALENDAR Email upcoming events to email@example.com. It is not clear what role Borst played in the Walker case. However, as a result of the Klan allegations, about two dozen cases that had been worked on by Borst and his co-worker, Cpl. George Hunnewell, who was red in July amid the same allegations, were re viewed by the State Attorneys Of ce in light of credibility concerns created by the two mens Klan asso ciations. Walter Forgie, supervising assis tant state attorney of Lake Coun ty, said his ofce tossed three cases that required testimony from Hun newell, the lone witness. However, the prosecution of the cases Borst was involved in werent contingent on his testimony and those cases will continue, including Walkers. Forgie said suspects race was not a factor in determining which cas es would be dropped. Forgie said Friday Borst had a very insignicant role in the (Walk er) case and will not be called by the state. Walkers aunt, Amanda Greene, said Borst was one of the ofcers who responded to the shooting. Prosecutors led a motion to keep references to Borsts resigna tion out of the trial, and Forgie said during a motion hearing on Thurs day the judge ruled such testimo ny was not admissible. Borst and Hunnewell denied be ing in the Klan. The allegations against them arose after another former Fruitland Park policeman who resigned in 2009 when pho tos showing him dressed in Klan regalia surfaced identied the two as also being members. Jury selection in the Walker trial is slated for Tuesday and testimony likely will start Wednesday. According to the sheriffs ofce, police had been looking for Walk er in January 2013 on accusations he pistol-whipped his nephew, who tipped off the sheriffs ofce to his whereabouts at an abandoned home in Fruitland Park. Walker broke away from depu ties as they tried to arrest him and jumped into his Buick. He then tried to drive off, almost hitting Deputy Jason Dunlap, who said he was in fear for his and his partners safety when he opened re. Walkers car crashed and he was treated at an Ocala hospital with non-life-threatening gunshot in juries and then taken to jail. Af ter a review of the case by the State Attorneys Ofce, Dunlap wasnt charged. Walkers lawyer couldnt be reached for comment and it is not clear if Walker intentionally tried to run over the deputies or what his defense will be. But according to a charging document on the assault, Walker unlawfully, knowingly and intentionally threatened to do vi olence to Dunlap and commit ted an act or acts which created a well-founded fear. According to the Clerk of Courts website, the State Attorneys Ofce decided not to prosecute Walker on the assault charges associated with his nephew, and Greene said during an interview Saturday Walk er wasnt trying to run over the dep uties. Forgie added the judge ruled he would allow the defense to men tion that Walker was shot by the deputy during his arrest, some thing that the prosecution also tried to keep out of the trial. TRIAL FROM PAGE A1 reason its politicized is we still dont know whats going on. The boy is buried and we still dont know the circum stances. Folks exploit these things for one thing or another, he said. Whether to loot or get their 15 minutes of fame. In a culture where the 24/7 news cycle dissects events and often lls the informa tion void with opinion, the topic of police shootings has become polarizing from the White House to cable shows to Asia. Browns name and Fergu son have become synony mous with police killings. They have been splashed on signs by protesters, added to hashtags on Twitter and referred to on T-shirts that sport the refrain heard in the city: Hands up! Dont shoot. In Albuquerque, N.M., a city facing federal-ordered reforms over excess police force, protesters have begun invoking Browns name at rallies connected to the citys string of police shootings. David Correia, a critic of city police, said protesters in voked Browns name because they believe minorities have been targeted in some exces sive force cases. Around half of the 41 police shootings in volved Hispanic suspects in a city where about half of the residents are Latino. Although it is true that many of the victims of police shootings here have been the homeless and those strug gling with mental illness, that element of racialized police violence is there, Correia said. Browns name has been spoken loudly in Los Angeles where demonstrators peace fully marched, held vigils and confronted police lead ers over the Aug. 11 killing of Ezell Ford, a 25-year-old un armed black man who fami ly members said was mental ly ill. Police said he tackled an ofcer and reached for his gun. News media have re ported that witnesses did not see any struggle. Browns death has refo cused attention on race in some killings or renewed in terest in older cases. The Aug. 5 shooting of a black man holding an air ri e in an Ohio Wal-Mart didnt become a racial issue until after Ferguson blew up with violence. The family of John Crawford III has since called on the U.S. Department of Justice to launch a civil rights probe. In Milwaukee, demonstra tors have taken to the streets three weeks in a row to call for federal ofcials to investigate police brutality against mi norities after Dontre Hamil ton, a 31-year-old black man who was shot and killed by a white Milwaukee police of cer four months ago. In New York, the City Coun cil will review police proce dures after a black man sus pected of illegally selling cigarettes on the street died after being placed in a choke hold by a white ofcer. Gina Thaynes nephew, Dillon Taylor, 20, was fatal ly shot by Salt Lake City po lice within days of Browns death. Protesters decried the use of lethal force in Taylors shooting and others, includ ing Browns, as well as the outtting of ofcers around the nation with military-style gear. Thayne said she partici pated in the demonstrations, but was reluctant to make a connection between the two cases. I just want to nd out the truth, no matter what it is, she said. OUTCRY FROM PAGE A1 AP FILE PHOTO People protest for Michael Brown, who was killed by a police ofcer in Ferguson, Mo. to vacate the hotel by Aug. 29 when the utili ties were set to be dis connected because Sun Management, owner of the hotel, owed the city $38,632 for six months of pastdue utility bills. Robert Sargent, spokesman for Lees burg, said Joseph Car houn, Sun Manage ments owner, reached out to the city on Fri day in an effort to keep the utilities on so that families would not have to vacate. The city checked with Carhouns bank and determined he has the $28,000 avail able, Sargent said. Since City Hall was closed over the week end and today for La bor Day, city ofcials expect to have the money in hand Tues day. If we get the check processed and every things okay, then we will continue utili ty service for an un determined amount of time while we work with Sun Manage ment to pay the bal ance of what is due on the account, Sargent said. If the check does not process proper ly and theres a prob lem, then we will be shutting off utilities at 11 a.m. Tuesday. The $38,632 that Carhoun already owes will grow to about $50,000 on Thursday when another $12,000 utility bill comes due for the Stay & Save, Sargent said. If the $28,000 check clears, though, the total amount owed Thurs day will be about $22,000. We will gure out with Sun Management how they are going to pay the balance of what is due to contin ue to have utility ser vice at the site, Sar gent said. Ray and Brenda Crawford and their three children were among families who left Stay & Save Inn for another motel. Its sad because the Crawfords are real ly good people, Sarah Manning said Sunday of her friends plight, which was made tougher when Ray was hospitalized over the weekend for excruci ating back pain. Man ning was taking care of the couples children, Michael, 14, Joshua, 12, and Emmily, 10. I want to go back there (Stay & Save) to live because they have a pool, said Emmily. Joshua said he had several friends at Stay & Save Inn. But, my mom and dad dont want to go back there because they dont want the same thing to happen again, Joshua said of the family potentially having to vacate if the owner doesnt pay his bills. VACATE FROM PAGE A1 a registered Republican. The inescapable deluge is not conned to Iowa, and its only going to get worse. Election Day is just two months off and the national tab for the 2014 campaign already stands at $1 billion. Before its all over, the bill for the rst midterm elec tion since both Democrats and Republicans embraced a historic change in cam paign nance is likely to grow to $4 billion or more. TV ads try to reach the few who are able to be swayed and willing to vote. In the closest Senate races, that translates into a price per vote that could double that of the 2012 presiden tial election. Just turn on the TV in Des Moines. On a recent night, an ad against Democratic contender Bruce Braley and for Republican rival Joni Ernst aired back to back. They were among the eight ads jammed into a 30-min ute local newscast. Even though both politi cal parties are tapping out side groups for seemingly unlimited spending, turnout in the primaries has been at near historic lows. Enthusi asm shows no sign of chang ing come November. That means that each vote is going to be more costly than ever before. The most expensive race so far is Kentuckys Sen ate race, at $36 million and counting. The ads stack up heavily, with dueling ap peals to female voters from Senate Republican lead er Mitch McConnell and Democratic challenger Ali son Lundergan Grimes. They are getting annoy ing because its the same thing over and over. Finally it just disturbs you enough un til sometimes you think you wont even vote because of that, said Pamela Blevins, a Grimes supporter in Pike County who plans to vote.

The election-year reduction in ve hicle-registration fees (SB 156), one of two new laws going into effect Monday, is expected to save motor ists $17 to $25 a year depending on the size of the vehicles. The other new law (SB 242) is in tended to keep people from stealing the identities of children. The Keep ing I.D.

He sug gested a splash pad in the same area, which he estimated would cost about $300,000. Also for phase 1, we talked about put ting in a beautication and fencing along the highway to add archi tectural features to the park, and were talking about brick columns and iron fencing that would give a new corri dor look to Dixie, Min ner said. He estimates a cost of about $75,000 for the decorative fenc ing, $75,000 to refurbish and make upgrades of the fountain, $40,000 to redo the pavilion and $30,000 for landscaping and signage improve ments. Minner suggested the action plan to renovate Venetian Gardens could be composed of four major elements. Those major ele ments are kind of cen tered around what do we do with Kids Korner, what do we do with an aquatics center, where do we go with the com munity center and how do we link the down town with Venetian Gardens, trying again to continue to improve on the communitys assets both being the down town and Venetian Gar dens, Minner said. The city manager showed a PowerPoint presentation that in cluded other phases of the Venetian Gardens action plan, includ ing a $4 million aquat ics center featuring a competition pool with diving and other ame nities and an expand ed community center. Minner said there were six additional parcels that the city staff be lieves that could be key to redeveloping the city block along Dixie Ave nue, which could cost around $420,000. Minner said $190,000 for phase 1 is already in capital budget proj ects in the general fund for scal year 2015, and that a transfer of gas and some solid waste (funds) would help wrap out the money for the project. I am all in on phase 1, said Mayor John Christian, who want ed to hold off on buy ing land for the second phase. I dont want us to get overextended. Future Commission er Dan Robuck told the board he was dis appointed by the citys PowerPoint presenta tion. A lot of the plans called for commercial use and private/public partnerships with a ma rina, waterfront shops and restaurants, and I dont want to lose sight of that, he said. We should also work on the commercial aspect that actually generates some revenue for the city.

At each stop, Scott will maintain support for a number of salestax shopping holidays, along with touting plans to cut the com munications-services tax imposed on cable and phone services, eliminate a manufac turing sales tax, phase out both the corporate income tax and a sales tax on commercial leas es and enact a constitu tional amendment that would prevent residen tial property taxes from being increased when home values dont go up. Little information was immediately avail able Friday about how each cut could impact the state budget or lo cal government reve nues. The planned taxcut tour follows similar campaign runs in which Scott has pledged to maintain or increase funding for transporta tion, the environment and schools. During the tour, scheduled to touch down in 28 cities, Scott will also play up that the vehicle-registration fees were raised as part of a 2009 law signed by Democratic gubernato rial challenger Charlie Crist, then the Republi can governor. Crists campaign sent out a release seeking to re-label Scotts cam paign stops as the emp ty promises tax tour. Scott considered the vehicle-registration fee reduction one of his crit ical priorities during the spring legislative ses sion. The cut to vehi cle-registration fees is expected to trim state revenue by $309.1 mil lion during the current 2014-15 scal year and $394.6 million in lat er years, when the cuts will be in effect for a full 12 months. The vehicle fee change was included as part of the wide-rang ing, $500 million patchwork of awe someness tax package, so named by one of its chief architects, House Finance & Tax Chair man Ritch Workman, R-Melbourne. Among the items in the pack age were sales-tax hol idays, a reduction in the insurance premium tax on bail-bond pre miums, and the per manent elimination of sales taxes on college meal plans, therapeu tic pet foods, child car seats and bicycle hel mets for kids. Todays effective date for the vehicle registra tion-fee rollback was set to ensure the change could be implemented smoothly, said Depart ment of Highway Safe ty and Motor Vehicles spokesman John Lucas. With the amount of work thats required to reduce fees and enter it into our system for more than 14 million vehicles that are affect ed by this fee reduction, it took some time, Lu cas said. So, we thought Sep tember 1 would be a good target date to start from. Scott has made cut ting taxes and fees a major focus of his ad ministration and his re-election campaign. The Republican rst pledged to eliminate the states corporate in come tax when he ran in 2010, along with call ing for a $1.4 billion property-tax cut as part of a sweeping economic plan he said would not reduce school funding. Efforts to cut tax es on commercial leas es and the communica tions-services tax have stalled in the Legisla ture in recent years. And Scott in 2013 re quested a permanent tax cut for manufac turing machinery. In stead he had to wait un til the nal week of the legislative session be fore getting lawmakers to include a three-year temporary cut as part of a larger economic-in centives package. During the campaign, he has repeatedly ham mered Crist on tax is sues. Increasing vehi cle-registration fees was among a number of tax and fee measures that the Republican-dom inated Legislature ap proved in 2009 as the state grappled with a budget shortfall that stemmed from the eco nomic recession. Other increases in 2009 included a hike in late-payment fees on drivers license renew als, from $1 to $15. Also, the cost of an original drivers license went from $27 to $48, rsttime registrations of cars went from $100 to $225, and cigarette tax es were increased by $1 a pack. As part of the upcom ing tour, Scott will call for eliminating more of Charlie Crists tax and fee increases, includ ing the hike on rsttime car registrations, according to informa tion released Friday by his campaign. CUTS FROM PAGE A3 on the priorities that we share, which include the well being of Floridas economy and resistance to so much of the Obama agenda, Fant said in the statement. The District 15 race was one of the most closely watched primaries in the state and drew hundreds of thou sands of dollars in spending. The seat opened up when Rep. Daniel Davis, R-Jacksonville, announced he would not run for re-election. Fant is virtu ally guaranteed of winning the seat in November because two write-ins are his only opposition. LAWMAKERS OUTLINE SCHEDULE LEADING UP TO SESSION Florida lawmakers will return to the Capitol on Nov. 18 for an organi zational session to swear in members and to formally install Sen. Andy Gar diner, R-Orlando, as Senate president and Rep. Steve Crisafulli, R-Merritt Island, as House speaker. The choice of Crisafulli remains con tingent on him winning re-election Nov. 4 in House District 51. Schedules released by the chambers also show that lawmakers will not hold commit tee meetings in December, though there will be training for new House members the week of Dec. 8. Commit tees will meet the weeks of Jan. 5, Jan. 20, Feb. 2, Feb. 9 and Feb. 16.

That agreement expired on Aug. 10, although he was granted a 30-day extension on July 15. About a week later, staff met with Kerr and told him he could re quest another agree ment to continue using the trailers for a set pe riod of time, seek a con ditional use permit or move them to a more suitable location. Unfortunately, none of the options offered were suitable to Kerr, according to a staff re port to be reviewed by city commissioners Tuesday night. Kerr has come up with a fourth option. He wants to remove the trailers wheels and ax les, anchor and place skirting around them like a mobile home, paint the units and build a roof-over that will resemble a barn. I will get a site plan and all the permits I am supposed to obtain, and all the improvements will be completed with in 180 days, Kerr wrote in a letter to the city, adding, I would really like to stay in Umatilla. Kerr, who has been in business for about 20 years, is the largest sup plier of feed and sup plies in Central Florida, according to the stores website. Brett Foss, president of the Central Florida Dog Hunters & Sports mans Association, said its 700 members are supporting Kerr. If you force him to get rid of the trailers, you will then force his longtime customers to go to another feed store in another city for their hay needs, possibly hurting his business or even putting him out of business, Foss wrote in a letter to the city. This will affect the community as a whole. Not only will it affect the local livestock owners, it will affect those of us who buy other supplies from Dan. Altoona resident John Thomas also has sent the city a letter of sup port for Kerr. The feed store is a boost to the communi ty and a tax plus to the city, he wrote, noting Kerr does a lot to give back to the community. How many of you on the board have given as much? City Land Planner Greg Beliveau said mak ing the trailers perma nent will meet Umatil las land development criteria. The citys build ing ofcial has also in dicated that the trailers, skirted and strapped down, are allowable un der building codes. The council will meet at 7 p.m. at the Umatilla Public Library, 412 Hat eld Drive. DISPUTE FROM PAGE A3 SAMEER N. YACOUB Associated Press BAGHDAD Iraqi security forces and Shi ite militiamen on Sun day broke a six-week siege imposed by the Islamic State extremist group on the northern Shiite Turkmen town of Amirli, as a suicide bombing killed 14 peo ple in Anbar western province, ofcials said. Army spokesman Lt. Gen. Qassim al-Mous sawi said the operation started at dawn Sun day and the forces en tered the town shortly after midday. Speaking live on state TV, al-Moussawi said the forces suffered some causalities, but did not give a specic number. He said ght ing was still ongoing to clear the surround ing villages. Breaking the siege was a big achieve ment and an import ant victory he said, for all involved: the Iraqi army, elite troops, Kurdish ghters and Shiite militias. Turkmen lawmaker Fawzi Akram al-Tarzi said they were distrib uting aid to residents. About 15,000 Shiite Turkmens were strand ed in the farming com munity, some 105 miles north of Baghdad. In stead of eeing in the face of the Islamic State groups rampage across northern Iraq in June, the Shiite Turkmens stayed and fortied their town with trench es and armed positions. Residents succeeded in fending off the ini tial attack in June, but Amirli has been sur rounded by the mili tants since mid-July.

Associated Press TRIPOLI, Libya An Islamist-allied mi litia group in control of Libyas capital now guards the U.S. Em bassy and its residen tial compound, a com mander said Sunday, as onlookers toured the abandoned homes of diplomats who ed the country more than a month ago. An Associated Press journalist saw holes left by small-arms and rocket re dotting the residential compound, reminders of weeks of violence between rival militias over control of Tripoli that sparked the evacuation. The breach of a de serted U.S. diplomat ic post including images of men earlier swimming in the com pounds algae-lled pools likely will re invigorate debate in the U.S. over its role in Libya, more than three years after supporting rebels who toppled dic tator Moammar Gad ha. It also comes just before the two-year an niversary of the slay ing of U.S. Ambassa dor Chris Stevens and three other Americans in Libya. A commander for the Dawn of Libya group, Moussa Abu-Zaqia, told the AP that his forces had been guarding the residential compound since last week, a day after it has seized con trol of the capital and its international airport after weeks of ghting with a rival militia. AbuZaqia said the rival mi litia from Zintan was in the compound before his troops took it over. Some windows at the compound had been broken, but it appeared most of the equipment there remained un touched. The AP journalist saw treadmills, weight benches and protein bars in the compounds abandoned gym. Forks, knives and napkins set for a banquet sat on one table, while a can tina still had cornakes, vinegar, salt and pepper sitting out. Some papers lay strewn on the oor, but it didnt appear that the villas in the compound had been ransacked. Abu-Zaqia said his militia had asked clean ers to come to spruce up the grounds. Another Dawn of Lib ya commander, who spoke on condition of anonymity as he wasnt authorized to speak by his leaders, told the AP that the U.S. Embassy, about a kilometer (half a mile) away, also was under guard by his mi litiamen. Weve secured the lo cation and the assets of the embassy, he said. Weve informed our command ... immedi ately after entering the place following the exit of the rival militia. The place is secure and un der protection. The commander did not elaborate and the AP journalist could not reach the embassy. The Dawn of Libya militia is not associated with the extremist militia An sar al-Shariah, which Washington blames for the deadly assault on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi on Sept. 11, 2012, that killed Ste vens and the three oth er Americans.

These are the people who labor their whole lives but are never rewarded with tangible success. Not ev ery dog has its day; some simply work their tails off. My father was one of those guys: never missed a day, never missed a beat and barely made a dime. But he taught my brother and me how to get a job done. Old Italians would grab their kids and say, The more you have in there, pointing to our heads, the less you have to put on there, point ing to our backs. My brother and I beneted from my fathers in tegrity, his stamina and his grati tude for having a job. 2. Most of the people actu ally working on Labor Day are the ones who really deserve the day off. Declared a federal hol iday in 1894, its meant to be a day of street parades illustrating the strength and esprit de corps of the trade and labor organiza tions followed by food and fes tivities for the workers families, according to the U.S. Department of Labor. Not anymore at least, not for folks selling groceries, serving food or manning the mall for the back-to-school rush. If you know how to run a register or deal non-violently with custom ers who bark Whaddya mean, I might need a different size? Im a 6. Ive always been a 6. Get me your manager, youll be required to show up for a double-shift. 3. Of course, some people take Labor Day quite literally: My friend Heidi gave birth to her daughter. 4. Just as every great job has a terrible hidden cost, every terri ble job has a wonderful, if small or secret, payoff. My husband worked at a deli when he was in high school and although he hated standing on his feet seven hours a day cutting fatty meats (including slicing tongue, which unnerves him to this day), he was able to eat his body weight in cold cuts, rye bread and cole slaw. He was a lanky kid; he ap preciated the fresh food and the conversations with the custom ers. The job changed his life. 5. Every job teaches you some thing apart from the skill youre using at work. I learned one big lesson when working inventory at Barnes and Noble when it was the worlds biggest bookstore in a real building on Fifth Avenue. This was long before online order ing: We wrote down ISBN num bers on small slips of paper and went to the warehouse to retrieve titles. It became obvious that cer tain old volumes had new fans ev ery day because we were always restocking them, while some wild ly hyped and well-reviewed new books never sold a copy. It was then that I learned that many slick novels had a shorter shelf life than cannoli. Lets say it changed the focus of my literary ambitions. 6. Every young person should have had a job for an extend ed period of time where he or she needs to show up on time, in clean clothes, wide-awake, in a convincingly cheerful mood (faking it is ne nobody cares what your real mood is because its not about you) and prepared to complete whatever task is as signed. This is not about being exploited; this is about learning how to separate your public life from your private life. The idea is to learn to slough off the whiny self that moans I dont feeeeeel like doing this today. 7. You cant Retire Before Youre Thirty! any more than you can Age With Dignity Before Youre Twenty-Two! Thats just silly talk. 8. Were told you should follow your dreams and become nan cially independent, as if these two were twinned. Avoid building a fu ture based primarily on your in ner-promptings without estab lishing your economic security rst. Figure out how to make rent and pay bills: Not even with crowd sourcing will your bliss necessarily lead directly to the bank. 9. Theres no Major Investors Day for the same reason theres no Mens History Month. 10. Without ever working or having worked, how can you take a break and feel whole? Heres to earning our keep.

OTHER VOICES Gina Barreca MCCLATCHY-TRIBUNE NEWS SERVICE Ten truths about day jobs A rizona, which has become infamous for its hostility toward immigrants who are in the country illegally, lost an im portant case in the U.S. Supreme Court last year when the justices ruled that the state couldnt require proof of U.S. citizenship as part of the registration process for voting in elections for Congress. The 7-2 decision said that, where federal elections were con cerned, the state had to accept and use a federal registration form on which an appli cant states under penalty of perjury that he or she is a citizen without having to provide a passport or other documentation. The decision was good policy as well as good law because there is little evidence that immigrants who are in the country illegal ly are trying to register to vote in meaningful numbers. On the other hand, a requirement to supply documentation could keep many citizens immigrants and otherwise from exercising the franchise. Unfortunately, Arizona has joined the state of Kansas in a lawsuit seeking to force the U.S. Election Assistance Commission to include in the federal form given to Kansas and Arizo na voters instructions that they provide proof of citizenship. If you dont recognize the name Election Assistance Commission, you arent alone. Its an obscure four-member body that has been charged by Congress with enforcing provisions of the National Voter Registration Act of 1993 also known as the Motor Voter law that allows citizens to register to vote when they apply for or renew a drivers license, or by mail ing in a simple form. Under the law, the com mission, in consultation with the chief election ofcers of the states, shall develop a mail vot er registration application form for elections for federal ofce. In practice, that means that the commission can customize the form to include state-specic information. When Arizona tried to get the commission to include a proof-of-citizenship requirement in its state-specic instructions, the pan el deadlocked 2-2. It would be impossible for the panel to act on such a request now be cause all four seats (believe it or not) are va cant. But a federal district judge agreed with Kansas and Arizona that the commission staff was not only able but required to update the federal form to reect each states laws. The 10th Circuit Court could conceivably rule against Kansas and Arizona on the grounds that only the commission itself can add the lan guage they seek. But there is a more important reason for the states to lose: Congress, which has the power under the Constitution to over ride state rules for congressional elections, clearly intended to make voting easier, not harder. The appeals court should recognize that that intention trumps the two states desire to make citizens show their papers. Distributed by MCT Information Services.

After colliding with a semitrailer as it turned right from a downtown street onto a major ave nue, Cenar was under neath the trailer, the bi cycle she had been riding strewn somewhere nearby. Cenar noticed a per son crouched down on the street, trying to talk to her. She dug into a pants pock et for her cellphone and slid it along the pavement. Call the number on the back, she instructed. And take a picture, she recalls saying. Thus began Cenars journey of recovery from the gruesome injuries she suffered in the November 2011 crash, which left her permanently disabled and resulted in the largest set tlement, agreed to late last month, in Illinois history for a crash involving a bi cycle. With Chicagos an nual summer triathlon in mind, Cenar hopes she will inspire others to over come the kind of tragic ex periences that can change a persons life in an in stant. Cenar, 51, an avid cy clist, was riding about 2,000 miles a year before the crash. Shed take week long trips out West to tour the peaks of the Rocky Mountains. It was the most amaz ing thing. I couldnt even believe I could do it, Ce nar said. That was, like, my vacation. Once a xture on the Chicago triathlon scene and a well-known tness instructor on the Near North Side, Cenar can no longer compete, teach or take cycling trips be cause of her injuries. She is able to walk on her own, but the crash damaged the connections between her muscles and bones, making it difcult for her to keep her balance and Making strides After near-fatal bicycle accident, triathlete progressing in long recovery PHOTOS BY ANTONIO PEREZ / MCT ABOVE: Terri Cenar does sit-ups after swimming laps at the Fitness Formula Club in Chicago.

Monday, September 1, 2014 DAILY COMMERCIAL B3 impossible to catch herself, she said. Fall ing is always a risk. And she faces ongoing inter nal injuries that require regular surgical proce dures. But less than three years after the crash, she is able to ride a sta tionary bike, use an el liptical machine and swim for 30 minutes straight. Its a remark able recovery for some one whose pelvis was essentially attened by a 28,000-pound truck, her doctor said. Cenar said she ap proached her recovery with the same can-do attitude that propelled her in cycling. I always looked at it as, OK, heres this big climb, you cant give up, Cenar said. If youre on your bike and youre riding up a steep climb and you stop, you have to go down to go back up again. So thats how I felt: I cant stop because if I stop, I have to go backward. Cenars case against the driver and the com pany he was working for was set to go to trial in December, but a set tlement was nalized recently, according to her lawyer, Tim Cava nagh. At $9.75 million, it is the largest settle ment or verdict in Illi nois history in a vehic ular collision involving a bicycle, according to John Kirkton, editor of the Jury Verdict Report er. Cenar said no amount of money can replace the joy she felt when biking and run ning outdoors. That is probably the hardest thing to adjust to, for my exercising life, she said. Cenar said she wants to share her story to let others know that when something that horrif ic happens in your life, it doesnt have to ruin your life. Cenars ordeal began the afternoon of Nov. 4, 2011, as she was riding her bicycle south to ward downtown Chica go on the way to meet her boyfriend, Scott Hill, at his ofce in the Loop. As she approached a major intersection, a semitrailer passed her and pulled a right turn onto Chicago Avenue. Witnesses said shortly after the crash that Ce nar had collided with a rear right tire of the trailer, which dragged her underneath it, ac cording to a police re port taken at the scene. Cenar said she lost consciousness during the crash but woke up under the trailer, with a person standing next to the truck and trying to talk to her. A witness eventually used Cenars phone to call Hill, who rushed to the scene and found Cenar being put into an ambulance, ac cording to witnesses and Hill. After she was stabi lized at Northwestern, Cenar was transferred to Loyola University Medical Center in May wood, Ill., where she was treated by Michael Stover, an orthopedic surgeon who specializ es in pelvic trauma. Injuries like Cenars have about a 25 per cent mortality rate, said Stover, who now prac tices out of Northwest ern. Cenar was lucky that her upper body and head were largely spared during the im pact with the truck, he said. What complicated her injury was the fact that the fractures in the front of the pelvis com municated with the ex ternal environment, Stover said. The wheel probably just went right over her pelvis. What it did is it attened her pelvis, stretching the skin in the front and tearing the skin. Doctors used spe cial vacuum sponges on Cenars wounds to remove extra uid and stimulate healing. Cenar then under went two major pro cedures to repair her pelvis. First, Stover at tached a plate to the pubic bones in front of her pelvis. Then he se cured her sacrum the back part of her pel vis with screws and plates. She was closed up with hundreds of stitches and staples. You could almost play tick-tack-toe on my stomach, with all my scars, she said. The pelvic recon struction was just the beginning. Cenar said she has undergone 14 surgeries since the crash, was transfused with as much as nine quarts of blood and will likely have regular sur gical procedures for the rest of her life. R.

LINDSEY TANNER Associated Press CHICAGO Do-it-your self blood pressure mea surements and medicine changes work better than usual doctor-ofce care in some patients, a study of old er adults in England found. Those who did their own readings at home and adjust ed their medicine as need ed had healthier blood pres sure levels after a year than those who got standard doc tors care. Self-care patients werent completely on their own any changes they made were part of a treatment plan pre viously OKd by their doctors. But the patients didnt need to consult their doctors every time they increased the dose if it was part of the original treatment plan. Why self-management worked best is uncertain, but patients who participated were taking more medication than the others and were per haps more vigilant than doc tors treating the usual-care group, the study suggests. Its possible usual-care doc tors had clinical inertia a phenomenon described in other research showing that physicians often fail to in crease blood pressure medi cation doses even when ofce measurements show patients levels are too high, said study author Richard McManus, a professor and researcher at the University of Oxford. The study was published Tuesday in the Journal of the American Medical Association. Nearly 1 in 3 U.S. adults have high blood pressure measuring 140 over 90 or higher but only about half of them have it adequately controlled, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. High blood pressure rates are similar in England, health surveys there have found. The study involved 450 pa tients with previous heart trouble, strokes, diabetes or kidney disease, aged 70 on av erage, who were followed for a year. About half got usual care; the others did self-care. Average blood pressure measurements at the studys start were about 143 over 80. At the end, that dropped to about 128 over 74 in the selfcare patients and 138 over 76 in the usual-care group. That difference would be expected to result in a drop in heart problems or other com plications, although more research is needed to evaluate long-term benets, according to a JAMA editorial.

The med ication dissolves the clot, restoring blood ow to the brain. But while he missed that chance, he was right on time to meet Dr. Dileep Yavagal, a neurosurgeon who practices at the Univer sity of Miami and Jack son Memorial hospitals. Yavagal was enroll ing patients in RECOV ER-stroke, a clinical tri al treating recent stroke patients with stem cells from their bone mar row and applying them directly into the carotid artery, one of two arter ies that supply the neck and head with blood. Daily was one of 47 pa tients nationwide who qualied for the study. The study is fund ed by Cytomedix, the company that devel oped the technology to extract stem cells from bone marrow. The rm chose Yavagal to lead a national blind study at the end of 2012. Yavagal enrolled 13 patients at the Univer sity of Miami/Jackson Memorial Hospital, be tween the end of 2012 and January of 2014. So far, the initial threemonth results have re vealed that the mar row cells are not doing any damage, and there was no clear difference between those who re ceived the cells and those who didnt. The studys one-year nal results will be revealed in January. There is severe need for developing treat ment for ischemic stroke, and stem cells are the most prom ising, said Yavagal, whose own research is still in its initial phase, focusing on using a healthy donors bone marrow stem cells ver sus the patients own marrow. Stroke, the leading cause of adult disabili ty in the United States, and the No. 4 cause of death in the country, causes 130,000 deaths a year in the U.S., ac cording to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Yavagal, associate professor of clinical neurology and neuro surgery and the direc tor of interventional neurology at the Uni versity of Miamis Mill er School of Medicine, said that restricted mo bility or loss of speech resulting from a moder ate to severe stroke can be devastating because patients often become dependent on someone else for daily activities. It can really take your personhood away, he said, adding that, be sides physical thera py, there isnt any treat ment to help decrease the effects of a stroke. Yavagal believes his study, the rst stroke treatment to be de livered directly to the brain via the carotid ar tery, has the potential to boost blood vessels af fected by stroke. Applying the stem cells directly into the carotid artery as op posed to intravenous ly, in which less than 3 percent reach the brain, ensures that they dont become entrapped in the lungs and the liver. The carotid artery injection is not only something that is mini mally invasive, but also something that directly targets the cells to go to where we know the in jury is, he said. STROKE FROM PAGE B1 BRITTANY SHAMMAS MCT Lindsey Averill spent most of her life think ing things would be bet ter if she could just get skinnier. She counted calories and worked out, but still couldnt reach the size she wanted, the one she saw on TV and in mag azines. She put things off, thinking shed do them once she shed 10 more pounds. Everything was in relation to when I got thinner, said Averill, 36. Its almost as if my life was going to start when I got thinner. Then she discovered whats known as the fat acceptance movement and started loving her body just the way it was fat, in her words. Averill, who is 5 feet 6 inches tall, stopped get ting on scales two years ago. The last time she got on one, she said she weighed 217 pounds. Now Averill, a Boca Raton, resident and doctoral student at Florida Atlantic Univer sity, is trying to encour age others do the same through a documentary shes making with lm maker and friend Virid iana Lieberman of New York City. Called Fattitude, the movie, slated to be n ished in 2015, is aimed at exposing discrimina tion against overweight people in pop culture and in daily life. Its also meant to teach people that they can embrace their bodies at any size. It turns out that fat acceptance and dis crimination is some thing many people feel strongly about. After a fundraiser for the movie went live on Kickstart er.com in April, Averill started getting harassed. People sent pizzas to her house, signed her up for weight loss products and posted her address online. They even called with death threats. Aver ill admits being scared, but said it also showed how important the Fat titude project is. If we can incite all this hatred by spread ing the message that you shouldnt have to hate your fat body, then clearly there is preju dice and injustice out there, she said. What I want it to do is change the nature of how we see bodies and weight and help people love their bodies, Lieb erman said, and recog nize that not only is it OK to be different, but to embrace the spec trum of bodies. Some of the con troversy is centered around the idea that by saying its OK to be overweight, the movie will promote unhealthy lifestyles. Lieberman and Averill say that crit icism is misguided. They say theyre try ing to reframe health as being not about get ting thinner through ex cessive dieting or exer cise but about leading a healthy lifestyle at ev ery size. Being over weight doesnt neces sarily mean a person is unhealthy, they say. Im not going to say to you that every sin gle fat body in the world is healthy and Im also not going to say every thin body in the world is healthy, Averill said. For me its not a ques tion about size or shape. Its about thinking about people as indi viduals and evaluating them as individuals. Documentary aims to promote body acceptance MARK RANDALL / MCT Lindsey Averill, of Boca Raton, is working with lmmaker Viridiana Lieberman in New York to produce Fattitude.

SCHUYLER DIXON Associated Press ARLINGTON, Texas Jameis Winston said No. 1 Florida State did a little celebrating in the locker room after leav ing the eld seeming ly less than thrilled with a closer-than-expect ed win over Oklahoma State. Sure, the defending national champions didnt look much like repeat material in the same stadium where the next title will be de cided under the new playoff format. It was still a 37-31 win over a team that might be re building but isnt exact ly a slouch. There is no reason to get upset because I feel like we needed a great game, Winston, the Heisman Trophy win ner, said after throwing for 370 yards and run ning 28 yards for a score Saturday night. And Oklahoma State was outstanding out there. They never gave up. The Seminoles (1-0), who tied a school re cord with their 17th consecutive victory, had the nations top passing defense last year and looked the part early in building a 17-0 lead in the $1.2 billion home of the Dallas Cowboys. Oklahoma States J.W. Walsh outplayed Win ston in the second half, rushing for two touch downs and throw ing for another to keep the Cowboys close. But Florida State twice came up with fourth-quarter stops when the Cow boys could have taken the lead with a touch down. The rst was a 14-yard sack of Walsh on an in tentional grounding call that led to a punt and a short eld that helped Florida State get a eld goal for a 30-24 lead. The second was cor nerback P.J.

Coming off a week that was pedestrian by his standards, McIlroy got right back into the mix at the TPC Boston with his power and great iron play for a 64, leaving him just two shots behind on a crowded leader board. Ive been in this position quite a lot recently, McIlroy said. So I know how its going to feel tomorrow. It feels a lot like the FedEx Cup playoff opener a week ago at The Barclays, with more than a dozen players having a reasonable chance going into the nal round. Ten players were separated by four shots at the Deutsche Bank Cham pionship, and six of them al ready have won this season. Henley was at 12-under 201. He will play in the nal group with Billy Horschel, who bird ied his last three holes for a 67. Chris Kirk went toe-to-toe with McIlroy in the third round and matched his 64, coming within inches of an eagle on the nal hole. They will play together again on Monday. Jason Day, who started Sun day tied with Ryan Palmer, reached 12 under with a short birdie putt on the 13th hole. But he missed a short par putt on the 14th and hooked his tee shot into high grass and had to pitch out, leading to anoth er bogey on the 15th. Day also failed to birdie the par-5 18th and shot 69.

C2 DAILY COMMERCIAL Monday, September 1, 2014 Odd as it is for two schools to face off af ter closing the previ ous season against each other, Petrino reminds players that life has changed for both pro grams. Weve tried to make our players understand, theyre two completely different teams, Petri no said last week. We have a different offense, a different defense; they have a different quar terback and some of the same guys back on de fense. But its two total ly different teams and its going to be a battle. We have to go out there and perform well, play with great intensity and try to nd a way to win the game in the fourth quarter. Despite two straight wins over Miami in cluding a 31-7 victory in the nal year of Petri nos rst stint, Louis ville is 0-9-1 otherwise against the Hurricanes. The Cardinals also face a Miami team favored again to win the ACCs Coastal Division after nishing 9-4 last sea son. The Hurricanes might also be motivated to avenge last years bowl shellacking by the Car dinals by spoiling their ACC debut on home turf. Miami coach Al Golden downplayed the revenge factor and credited Louisville for being the better team that day. His mission is making sure the Canes are bet ter this time around.

Her tardiness seemed to swing the Arthur Ashe Stadi um crowds support squarely in Wozniac kis favor. When the 10th-seeded Dane broke Sharapova at love to go up 3-1 in the nal set, she got a standing ovation from the fans and waved her arms to egg them on. Wozniackis defen sive style is faulted as the reason that the for mer top-ranked player has made only one ma jor nal. But it worked to perfection as Shara pova wilted. On the last point of that game, Sharapova appeared to hit a winner three times only for Wozni acki to somehow chase down the ball. Shara pova nally hit a vol ley into the net to end the rally. Wozniacki broke her again to end the match. About a halfhour later, play was halted at Flushing Meadows because of thunderstorms in the area. As a 19-year-old, Wozniacki made the 2009 U.S. Open nal, losing to Kim Clijsters, and reached No. 1 in the world the next year. Since then, she was best known for getting engaged to star golfer Rory McIlroy then getting dumped in late May after wedding in vitations had gone out. Wozniacki lost in the rst round at the French Open soon thereafter and was up set in the fourth round at Wimbledon.

BRETT LE BLANC / DAILY COMMERCIAL Miami quarterback Stephen Morris calls a play during the 2013 Russell Athletic Bowl in Orlando. a fumble on a hit that sent Walsh cartwheel ing to the turf. Moments later, Win ston threw his only touchdown pass, a 50-yarder to Rashad Greene. He had two in terceptions. I dont think we let down, Florida State coach Jimbo Fisher said. I think we were just worrying. I keep telling them, you dont worry about results. You worry about the pro cess of playing well, ex ecuting well, doing the little things. The Seminoles are all but certain to set a school with their 18th straight win Saturday against The Citadel. Af ter a week off, their At lantic Coast Confer ence opener is against No. 16 Clemson, which will drop in the poll af ter a 45-21 loss to 12thranked Georgia. No. 17 Notre Dame looms in October. To get back to North Texas, Florida State will have to qualify for the new four-team College Football Playoff, and win a national semi nal on New Years Day. The title game is Jan. 12 in Dallas owner Jer ry Jones massive show place. We dont feel like its a burden at all, Wil liams said. Were not defending last years ti tle because we cant lose it, so were chasing the next one and trying to get that. Greene had 11 catch es for a career-high 203 yards, moving into fourth on the schools career list with 2,668 yards receiving. But Karlos Williams aver aged just 2.9 yards on 23 carries in his rst game as the featured running back. Winston had 15 in completions a year af ter throwing just two in a spectacular debut that jump-started his Heisman season. One of his deep balls was so badly under thrown, the Seminoles got a pass interference penalty when Greene had to stop to try to catch it and Ashton Lampkin ran into him. But the next play, Win ston led Greene per fectly on a 37-yard com pletion to set up one of Roberto Aguayos three eld goals. Winston also had the signature play of the game when he scored, hurdling guard Josue Matias and sidestep ping a defender on the longest run of his ca reer. We didnt play well, like we wanted to play, Fisher said. But we still made critical plays when we had to make critical plays. And there is something to that. FSU FROM PAGE C1 CANES FROM PAGE C1 up two runs and seven hits over 6 1-3 innings and took his rst loss in two months. After losing to Pittsburgh on June 23, Cobb went 7-0 with a 2.14 ERA in 11 starts entering Sunday. Since becoming the fourth team in big league history to reach .500 after fall ing 18 games under the break-even point, Tam pa Bay (66-71), which has been shut out 16 times this season, has dropped 10 of 15. Xander Bogaerts singled leading off the third, went to third when Cobb was charged with an error for a wild pickoff try and scored to put Bos ton up 1-0 on Christian Vazquezs single. The Rays have at least one error in eight consec utive games for their longest streak since a team-record, 11-game stretch in 2004. After Mookie Betts had an RBI single in the fth, David Ortiz made it 3-0 when he went the opposite way against a defensive shift and hit a run-scoring sin gle through the vacat ed shortstop spot in the eighth. Ortiz has reached base in 16 straight games. He has 152 RBIs against the Rays, the most of any opponent.

McIlroy won the Brit ish Open, a World Golf Championship and the PGA Championship to assert himself at No. 1 in the world. He had a chance to win early in the season until a late collapse in the Honda Classic, where Henley won the four-man play off. Henley can look as good as anyone, and then he can disappear. He has missed eight cuts and has only two nishes in the top 20 since winning the Hon da Classic. Now he is one round away at se curing his spot in the Tour Championship, and perhaps giving U.S. captain Tom Wat son one more person to consider for a Ryder Cup picks. But that one round seems far away consid ering the leaderboard, especially with McIlroy. Hes obviously a tough guy to beat, Henley said. But like I said, theres a lot of tough guys to beat. Rory has had a heck of a run and Im sure hell con tinue that. Horschel is at No. 82 in the FedEx Cup and came to the Deutsche Bank hopeful of moving into the top 70 to advance to the BMW Champion ship next week. Now hes in the nal group and adjusting his goals. He emerged late with a tap-in bird ie at the 16th, a tough 12-footer on the 17th and a wedge to 5 feet on the nal hole. And while Kirk had the same type of bo gey-free round as McIl roy, it was a lot tougher to ignore McIlroy. Two of his birdies on the back nine were inside a foot. Another was just over 4 feet from the ag, and his longest birdie on the back nine was 12 feet. He made birdie on the par-5 second with a two-putt from 8 feet. It feels normal, McIlroy said. It feels like its what Im sup posed to do. Its my job to go out there and shoot good scores. Im not getting too excited about it. Ive got a lot of work to do tomorrow if I want to win this tour nament. McIlroy won the Deutsche Bank Cham pionship two years ago. Webb Simpson, among those under Ry der Cup consideration, overcame a double bo gey to post a 68 and was three shots behind. Kee gan Bradley also is in the hunt for one of the three captains picks. He made only two birdies on a soft day for scoring and had a 69, leaving him four shots behind. DIVOTS Geoff Ogilvy shot 29 on the back for a 65 and was tied for 11th. He would need somewhere around eighth place to advance to the next Fe dEx Cup playoff event. One week ago, Ogilvy gured he was done for the year until Troy Mer ritt made bogey on the nal hole at The Bar clays. Ogilvy was the last player to qualify for the Deutsche Bank Cham pionship. ... Patrick Reed started the third round two shots out of the lead. He made four double bogeys on the back nine for an 82 and was among seven play ers who missed the 54hole cut. GOLF FROM PAGE C1
Monday, September 1, 2014 DAILY COMMERCIAL C3 NFL BARRY WILNER AP Pro Football Writer NEW YORK While 31 teams try to derail the Se ahawks attempt to repeat, there are plenty of other chal lenges facing players, coach es and owners heading into opening week of the NFL. Many are along the sidelines and in the stands. The NFL and its partners have been ahead of the curve in technology on television, but coaches were stuck using antiquated photo prints and cardboard play sheets. This season, coaches have the op tion of using NFL-approved tablets during games. Even the curmudgeonly Bill Belichick has enthusiastically endorsed the technology. The sideline of the future is where were going, says Troy Vincent, the leagues overseer of football operations. At the Hall of Fame game to open the preseason, Vincent noted that Buffalos coaching staff was fully engaged with the tablets. We were not real sure if the Giants Tom Coughlin was buying it, but it was en couraging, he said. Still photos will remain in place; youve got to have a backup plan. But you can see the players and the coach es quickly moving from one (image) on the tablet to the next to the next. We think with one season and an off season, the coaches will get more familiar with it. The younger generation already is all over it, as youd expect. Game ofcials will be wired up, too, much as soccer refer ees have been for years. That should improve communica tion on calls, perhaps leading to fewer huddles that slow the action. NFL ofciating director Dean Blandino admits the change is challenging. Its an adjustment, Blan dino says. You have peo ple communicating with you on the wireless that you hav ent experienced before. Well work through the process. Its an enhancement and we dont want it to be a deter rent in any way to our prima ry objectives. Another of the leagues pri mary objectives is keeping people in the stadiums. Its not quite so challenging ear ly in the season, when the weather is good and every one is in contention well, maybe not in Buffalo and Oakland. Deeper into the season, it gets tougher. TV viewing experience of our games is so good with the NFL channels and the Red Zone and HD televisions and other options. We have to give people reasons to want to come to our games, Gi ants owner John Mara says. So making the in-stadium experience special and dif ferent is a priority. Fans in stadiums will have access to video replays that viewers at home dont get. They will get Wi-Fi allowing them to track other games, their fantasy teams and to send seles. And, of course, they get to witness rsthand a long Adri an Peterson burst to the end zone, a Robert Quinn sack or a J.J. Watt swat of an attempt ed pass. I still believe nothing beats the experience of be ing at the stadium and see ing these great players live, Mara says. Some of those players wont be seen when the season be gins. A few Rams quarter back Sam Bradford, Cow boys linebacker Sean Lee, for example are injured and gone for the year. Others, such as Ravens running back Ray Rice, are suspended. Mara expresses concerns about player conduct away from the eld, even as he emphasizes a vast majority of NFL players never run into trouble. Player conduct has been an area of concentration be cause some of the things we see do damage the leagues image, Mara says. Any time a player is in any sort of trou ble, it automatically becomes front page news. These are young men and, at that age a minority of them are get ting into trouble from time to time. Thursday, Commission er Roger Goodell announced tougher punishment for do mestic violence. We look at all the offenses that involve players and the scenarios and we have got ten tough with the (punish ments) and we will remain tough with them, Mara said. Vincent stresses the need for players to behave well on the eld, too. An outstand ing defensive back for 15 NFL seasons, he understands as well as anyone the intensity of game action, the heat of the moment. He also knows that taunt ing fouls increased almost 400 percent from 2012 to 2013. Respect at the workplace is paramount, Vincent says. Yes, football is a highly emo tional sport. But we believe with shared training and dis cussions with the players, we have seen a conscious effort in the preseason to reduce it. We have not even talked about taunting in preseason games. NFLs challenge:Enhance stadium experience ELISE AMENDOLA / AP New England Patriots head coach Bill Belichick studies a tablet device on the sideline during an Aug. 15 preseason game against the Philadelphia Eagles in Foxborough, Mass. COLLEGE FOOTBALL RALPH D. RUSSO AP College Football Writer ATLANTA Look ing for a way to calm a jittery rst-time start ing quarterback, No. 2 Alabama broke out the no-huddle offense for a while against West Vir ginia. The move helped re calibrate Blake Sims, and the Tide went on to roll to victory. Up-tempo Alabama? And with the shifty Sims, guiding the of fense could the zoneread and spread be next? Not happening. Nick Saban is ne with the Tides oldschool ways. In fact, be ing the dinosaur in this age of high-tech offenses is now to Ala bamas advantage, Sa ban said after a 33-23 victory against West Vir ginia. The Tides no-hud dle tweak against the Mountaineers came in the second quarter, a suggestion Saban made to new offensive coordi nator Lane Kifn, who is calling plays from the sideline instead of from the coachs box above the eld as so many co ordinators do. Going no-huddle helped simplify things for a few moments for Sims, but its not as if Alabama was suddenly playing at a pace bet ting Oregon or Auburn. The Tide went back to the huddle for most of the game and held the ball for more than 37 minutes. And while Sims mobility is a new weapon for Sabans of fense after years of Greg McElroy and A.J. McCa rron tucked contented ly in the pocket, dont expect the Tide to stray too far from its tradi tional sets. Were one of the few teams in the world that still play regular peo ple, said Saban, refer ring to a tight end, two backs and two wide outs. Thats like when I played, that was like getting an empty (back eld). And now were like the dinosaur age when it comes to that. We also play two tight ends and two wide outs and one back. But one thing that I found out about all that is because every body else is spread and no-huddle, people re ally have a tough time defending what we do because nobody does it. And it allows us to be more physical and it does allow us to play more players. Old-school Tide shows glimpse of no-huddle BRYNN ANDERSON / AP Alabama quarterback Blake Sims (6) talks with offensive coordinator Lane Kifn during the fourth quarter against West Virginia on Saturday in Atlanta. TOM COYNE Associated Press SOUTH BEND, Ind. The Michigan-Notre Dame rivalry is about to go dormant again. The series dates to 1887 when Michigan students traveled to South Bend to teach Notre Dame students the game. The game has featured exciting games, stand out players and feuding coach es from schools 150 miles apart that are both coming off easy opening victories. Michigan defensive end Frank Clark doesnt like whats happen ing. Thats one of the big rivals. You got Notre Dame-Michigan. You got (Michigan) State-Mich igan. You got Ohio (State) vs. Michigan. For a team to opt out of that contract, and to opt out of playing another team that is a great rival and is one of those great games, its almost like a slap in the face, he said. Were going to do what weve got to do to get the job done. In 2007, the two schools an nounced they would play annu ally through 2031. Michigan ath letic director Dave Brandon said he was blindsided when No tre Dame athletic director Jack Swarbrick handed him a letter before the 2012 game informing him Notre Dame was ending the series. Brandon said he didnt read the letter until riding back to Ann Arbor. Swarbrick said the universi ty had to get some games off its schedule and the Michigan con tract had an automatic rollover provision with a year being add ed each time a game was played. He said Michigan insisted on that rollover provision. They were worried about the impact of a ninth game in the Big Ten schedule so they wanted the exibility to end it if they needed to, he said. Its not the rst time the se ries was abruptly ended. In 1910, the year after Notre Dame beat the Wolverines for the rst time, Michigan canceled the game the day before the game, claiming the Irish were using ineligible players. DAVID GOLDMAN / AP Georgias Todd Gurley, left, breaks away from Clemsons Kyrin Priester to return a kickoff for a touchdown. PETE IACOBELLI AP Sports Writer COLUMBIA, S.C. Maybe its not too ear ly for some Palmetto panic after No. 9 South Carolina and No. 16 Clemson both were blown out on opening weekend. Its the rst time in 15 years the Palmet to States teams each started 0-1. More than the defeats might be how awful the Game cocks and Tigers looked in the losses minus the stars they counted on the past few seasons. No. 21 Texas A&M and rst-time quarter back starter Kenny Hill put up 680 yards of of fense, the most allowed in Gamecocks history in a 52-28 victory last Thursday night. Then Saturday, Clemson and its fastpaced, high-ying at tack was held score less in the second half the rst time thats happened in coordi nator Chad Morris four seasons in No. 12 Georgias 45-21 win. The Gamecocks, af ter three straight 11-2 seasons, entered the opener as the trendy pick to win the South eastern Conferences Eastern Division. Instead, Hill exposed aws in a defense that lost NFL No. 1 draft pick Jadeveon Clowney and four others who were the backbone of last seasons group. The loss ended an 18game home win streak at South Carolina, which had spruced up its stadium including an 85-foot tall banner of Steve Spurrier loom ing over spectators. I think we all were surprised pretty much when it all didnt go ac cording to plan, Spur rier said Sunday. Part of the plan was a stout running game, led by 1,000-yard rush er Mike Davis. But Davis, who had a rib injury during fall camp, was hurt again against the Aggies and did not play in the sec ond half. Too early for Carolina teams to panic ?

Monday, September 1, 2014 DAILY COMMERCIAL C5 D006525 Se pte mb er 8th,2014 at 5 PM D006333 Se pte mb er 3r d, 2014 at 5PM MAJOR LEAGUE BASEBALL BEN WALKER AP Baseball Writer John Gibbons has a pretty standard rule for deciding when to dis cuss a bang-bang call with an umpire. We try to go out there anytime its close, the Toronto manager says. Same way across the majors: There have been more than 1,000 reviews so far in this new era of expanded re play nearly half re sulting in a reversal and its only August. Now get ready for an even longer postsea son parade of that slow dance, where the skip per strolls onto the eld, twirls around the ump and waits for the go-or-no sign from the dugout. Makes sense, too. Good idea to check most every tag and trap, especially when a single missed call could mean the difference between winning the World Se ries and an early exit. I think there are times that you have to challenge regardless of whether you think it will get overturned or not, depending at the importance at the time, where you are in the game, Oakland man ager Bob Melvin said. And perhaps there might be something else to consider come October. The rule on those pes ky plays at home, gener ating plenty of disputes over whether the catch er did or didnt block the plate, could get tweaked again. They might do some thing before the play offs. I think the catching thing at home plate, Baltimore manager Buck Showalter said. That would be ne with Tampa Bay man ager Joe Maddon. Its a uid situation, there is nothing locked in. Having said that, I think whatever is locked in at the time should be abided by. Then if any thing is to be amended, then do that, he said. I think in a perverse way, it would be a good thing before the play offs begin. It will prob ably benet baseball, the noted freethinker said. For the record, Com missioner Bud Selig said there arent any replay adjustments planned prior to the postseason. No, we will do that in offseason, he said this week during a visit to Petco Park in San Diego. Yeah, there are some tweaks and some things we need to do, but I am very happy, he said. All along, Major League Baseball said it would take a few years to get the system just right. Five months into the season, everyone is still learning, now that most everything except balls-and-strikes can be reviewed. Cleveland pitcher Corey Kluber got ran kled this week when he wasnt allowed to throw some warmups after a replay delay. Maddon led a protest over the timing of a challenge by Gibbons. Boston man ager John Farrell ques tioned two aspects of the same play. Farrell, the rst man ager to be ejected this season for arguing a re play decision, said hes in full agreement with the spirit of the use of instant replay, and thats to get the calls right. But he has his own idea on how that might be done. I think it would be ideal if Major League Baseball could take one person and be the overseer in every game, and they deter mine what play is re viewable or not, Farrell said. I think that would be most objective and most consistent. So no more manager challenges? Yes, he said. As of this week, there had been 1,030 situa tions that got reviewed by the booth in New York. Of those, 478 46.4 percent resulted in a reversed call. With so much con cern about slow games being dragged out, the reviews averaged 1 min ute, 49 seconds. MLB replay begins slow stroll toward postseason evaluation CHARLES KRUPA / AP Los Angeles Angels Albert Pujols is tagged out by Boston Red Sox catcher Christian Vazquez in an Aug. 18 game at Fenway Park in Boston. Pujols was originally called safe, but the call was overturned by video replay review. NAM Y. HUH / AP Chicago White Soxs Adam Dunn hits a one-run double against the Cleveland Indians on Wednesday in Chicago. ANDREW SELIGMAN AP Sports Writer CHICAGO The Oakland Athletics ac quired slugger Adam Dunn from the Chica go White Sox on Sun day, hoping to boost their lineup for the nal stretch. The White Sox also sent cash to Oakland while acquiring minor league pitcher Nolan Sanburn. Second in the AL West, the Athletics were looking to add a hitter after trading Yoenis Cespedes to the Boston Red Sox for starter Jon Lester be fore the July 31 non waiver deadline. Dunn has 460 career homers. But he strug gled in four seasons with the White Sox. He has an expiring contract and could re tire. The trade gives Dunn, whos batting .220 with 20 homers and 54 RBIs, a chance to do something he has never done reach the playoffs. I think this is just an opportunity for him that he shouldve tak en, manager Robin Ventura said. It came about and you talk to him about it, youre happy that he gets a chance to go do this. I think even if he does happen to hang it up after this year, hell at least get a shot at do ing this. The White Sox envi sioned making playoff runs when they signed him to a four-year, $56 million contract in De cember 2010. Dunn was coming off backto-back 38-homer sea sons with Washington but the plan didnt un fold as envisioned. Dunns rst season in Chicago was brutal. His average dropped more than 100 points to .159 while he hit just 11 homers in 2011, and he never really lived up to expectations after that. He became a light ning rod for fans with his high strikeout to tals, nishing one shy of the record with 222 in 2012, but he re mained popular in the clubhouse. Some people like to lump it all together, Paul Konerko said. We know the rst year was a rough year, but if you look at a lot of his time here, he kind of did what he was supposed to be doing. General manag er Rick Hahn said the White Sox started to zero in on the Oakland deal on Saturday. Athletics acquire Dunn from White Sox WARREN MAYES Associated Press ST. LOUIS Matt Hol liday hit his third home run in two games and broke an eighth-inning tie with a two-run single, rallying the St. Louis Car dinals past the Chicago Cubs 9-6 on Sunday. Holliday had three hits and four RBIs for the Cardinals, who began the day one game be hind rst-place Milwau kee in the NL Central. St. Louis second base man Kolten Wong hom ered but left in the top of the eighth after fall ing backward when he tried to catch a pop up in short right eld. He appeared to hurt his head and shoulder, and was replaced by Pete Kozma. Kozma, in his third stint with St. Louis this season, led off the bot tom half with a double.

YESTERDAYS SOLUTION HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Monday, Sept. 1, 2014 : This year you open up to better communication be tween you and others. Your innate sense of direction mixed with your sensitivi ty provides a new, dynam ic path if you are open to change. Infuse your life with energy and caring. If you are single, check out a po tential sweetie with scruti ny and perhaps even some cynicism. Someone you meet easily could be emo tionally unavailable, which could lead to a hurtful situa tion. You are one year away from meeting someone sig nicant to your life history. If you are attached, spend ing time alone with your sig nicant other will delight both of you. Love continues to blossom with your care. SAGITTARIUS grounds you. ARIES (March 21-April 19) Deal with someone di rectly in the morning. A dis cussion might reveal that there is a lot of common ground that exists between you. Understand that you have a problem to deal with that might demand some detachment. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) Others will be domineer ing. You might not like the implications of this behav ior. Maintain a calm exteri or, and hopefully the interior will follow. Use the after noon to have a long-over due discussion with some one who could be a good resource. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) Act as if you have a special opportunity heading your way, and you are likely to make it become a reality. Free yourself up in order to maximize its potential. The afternoon will serve you well if you decide to network. This trend will continue for several days. CANCER (June 21-July 22) Your creativity will be in higher demand than you re alize. Be prepared to cover all bases at once, and you just might succeed in do ing so. Listen to someone elses suggestion before you present your own. Do not assume that you have the only answers. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) Getting going might take more effort than you realize. You simply wont be up for running around. Consider how fortunate you are that today is Labor Day. Dont worry you will get into the holiday pace in the evening. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) You might want to say something thats been on your mind. Use care, as someone could have a strong reaction. Be calm and level-headed, and it all will work out. Hook up with friends in the afternoon to join in the Labor Day festiv ities. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) Curb a tendency to be possessive or jealous, as it only creates tension. It also could aggravate oth ers even more. You might be taken aback by a revela tion from someone you care a lot about. Honor a change gracefully. In the long run, it will work for you. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) You ll dive into your day full of energy. It is Labor Day, after all, and youre free to do what you want. Use care with your spending, as it could be nearly impossi ble to avoid certain costs. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22Dec. 21) Listen to a room mates or loved ones think ing in the morning. An idea or two actually might appeal to you. Do adequate reec tion on the matter. By the afternoon, youll have a sol id sense of what you want. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22Jan. 19) Listen to others during a meeting. Goodwill is likely to circulate among you and others. Use the af ternoon for some solid re ection and decision-mak ing. What seems irrelevant could be more signicant than you might choose to believe. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) Your words might hurt a friend, even if your intention was not to zero in on this persons sensitivities. Make it a point to let him or her know that you simply are concerned with a different matter that concerns some one else. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) Defer to someone else, and recognize that the is sue is much bigger than he or she will be able to visual ize. Understand that you are able to see the big picture, whereas others might not. Take the lead with a project. HOROSCOPES TODAY IN HISTORY DEAR ABBY: My neigh bor has a registered day care business, and every day I hear her screaming at young children and infants. They are all 4-yearolds and younger. We live in a rural area out side a small town. She uses profanity and says mean things to them. It makes me want to cry when I think of how scared those kids must be. Who do I contact with this informa tion? I could record her with my phone if evi dence was needed to shut down her busi ness. This woman has a really bad anger man agement problem. She also knows I can hear her because we have spoken about how our voices travel. I dont think she is being physically abu sive, but her words must be damaging to those kids. Please help me nd someone to tell. Im afraid the lo cal police wont be able to do anything. I cant even take my own child in our backyard because she swears so much. DAY CARE DRA MA IN INDIANA DEAR D.C.D.: Ideally, you should try to tell the parents what you have been hearing be cause they should be aware that their trust ed caregiver loses con trol of her emotions and takes out her frus trations on their chil dren. If the situation is as ugly as you describe, those kids must be ter ried of her. If thats not possible, Child Protective Ser vices should be noti ed because the en vironment is not emotionally healthy for little children. P.S. By the age of 4, children usually have started to repeat the language they hear around them. Im sur prised these parents havent noticed the change in their vocab ulary and questioned their little ones about where they heard those bad words. Nonethe less, on the chance that the parents are clue less, what you have ob served should be re ported. DEAR ABBY: I have a friend, a contrac tor working for the U.S. government, who thinks hes in love with a Ukrainian girl. The pay is really good. He recently came back from a visit to see this girlfriend. He has been sending this girl almost all his money for the last nine months. He was never alone with her, and she showed no emotional or physical attraction to him. In fact, a male friend of hers asked him for $800 to give as a bribe so he wouldnt be drafted into the Ukrainian military. We believe this male friend is, in fact, the girls real boyfriend. My friend paid $300 to send owers to her for their nine-month anniversary, for which she expressed no thanks or apprecia tion. What advice can you provide us here? FRIEND IN AFGHANISTAN DEAR FRIEND: Your friends romance seems suspicious to me, too. That he is giv ing all his money to someone who appears to be so emotionally distant is worrisome. I also have to doubt that $800 would keep an able-bodied man from being drafted into the Ukrainian mil itary since the coun try is now involved in military conict. It ap pears your friend is be ing treated more like an ATM than a suitor, but he may have to ar rive at that realization on his own.
