United Way campaign
BY MORGAN CARLSON
FLORIDAN STAFF WRITER


Bryan Taylor, president and CEO of United Way
of Northwest Florida, talks about past Jackson
County campaigns during a kick-off meeting
Tuesday. Mark Skinner / Floridan


The annual United Way cam-
paign in Jackson County official-
ly started Tuesday.
Community members and
United Way officials got together
Tuesday for a kick-off luncheon
sponsored by Regions Bank.
The fundraising campaign' will
last until mid-November, said Al
Green, chairman for the Jackson
County campaign. The goal is the
same as last year's goal -
$50,000.
. The campaign raises money for
22 local health and human servic-
es agencies that partner with
United Way.
Public and private sector organ-
izations form teams to raise
funds.
United Way emphasizes payroll
deduction as a fundraising
method.
"It's a lot less painful to give
that way," said Bryan Taylor,
president of United Way of
Northwest Florida.
Last year, the local campaign


kicks off
and state employee campaign
raised approximately $70,000 for
the area.
Individuals can designate what
organizations they want their
money to go to. Any funds that
are not designated are given out to
organizations that apply for
grants.
The Jackson County Bridge
and Road Department contributed
more than $7,000 to the campaign
last year through a chili dinner.
The annual chili dinner will be
on Nov. 5 this year. Green expects
to serve at least 650 dinners this
year.
One business has already
ordered 118 chili dinners, he said.
Representatives from the City
of Marianna, the Jackson County
Chamber of Commerce, the
Jackson County Health
Department, Waller Enterprises,
Beard Equipment Company, and
other private and public sector
groups were at the kick-off event.
For information on getting
involved with the campaign, call
Al Green at 482-9629 or Tommy
McDonald at 832-2919.

Panhandle county lifts 'oil impact notices'


BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
PENSACOLA A
Florida Panhandle county is
removing "oil impact notice"
signs from some of its beach-
es. Escambia County says
water analysis by the state


shows that levels of oil in are
within safe standards.
Officials also say the sand that
is visibly clean is also free of
oil and related chemicals.
The notice has been lifted
on Pensacola Beach and por-
tions of Perdido Key. It


remains in effect for the.coun-
ty's beaches closer to the
Alabama state line and for all
Gulf Island National Seashore
property.
Health Department
Director John Lanza said
Tuesday that residents should


still follow basic precautions
and avoid water and sand
where they see, smell or feel
oil. Pensacola Beach Public
Safety Supervisor Bob West
said he's confident that the
health risk from the oil "is
nil."

Our Opinion



The


wonders of


technology

If anyone needed a reminder of how
dependent we have become on tech-
nology even in communities as
small as Jackson County Tuesday
provided the perfect lesson.
Or perhaps it was the perfect storm.
Somewhere near Cottondale, a
telecommunications line had been cut.
Phone service was disrupted; land
lines didn't work, and then could only
make local calls. Long distance dial-
ing was impossible.
Internet service was disrupted; a
number of businesses were forced to
scale back their operations or close.
Government was also affected.
Some government offices, like the
Department of Motor Vehicles, were
reduced to answering questions that
'didn't require access to a database.
Even cell phone services were dis-
rupted. Jackson County residents
found themselves cut off from friends,
family and pretty much the rest of the,
world.
And just to cap it all off, a water
main break near the courthouse left
some Marianna customers without
water.
To say frustration levels were high
would be an understatement. The loss
of contact drove some (many of them
teenagers) to the brink of madness.
Internet service came back Monday
afternoon; cell phone and long dis-
tance services were down for longer.
But for much of the day, Tuesday was
the day the world went away for
Jackson County. Technology has
become an ingrained part of our daily
lives. But many of us didn't realize
just how ingrained, until it was all
taken away.

For both parties, 2008 is a lifetime away


BY STUART ROTHENBERG

It was fewer than two years
ago that voters swept Barack
Obama into the White House,
bolstering Democratic majori-
ties in the House and Senate
and setting off a flurry of pre-
dictions about the demise of
the Republican Party.
But with the 2010 elections
fewer than three months away,
all signs point to voters prepar-
ing for a dramatic course cor-
rection that will produce large
Republican gains.
National polls are consistent
in showing an electorate that is
dissatisfied with the direction
of the country, unimpressed
with the president's job per-
formance, disapproving of the
job Congress is doing and call-
ing for change.
* Although voters have confi-
dence in neither of the two
political parties, they appear to
be inclined to cast their votes
for GOP candidates in the fall.
The Gallup poll, for example,
has found more voters saying
that they plan to vote
Republican than Democrat for
Congress, a dramatic reversal
from sentiment before the 2006
and 2008 elections, when vot-
ers told the polling organiza-
tion that they intended to vote
for Democratic congressional
candidates.
Part of the Democrats' prob-
lem is that they hold so many
seats after winning a total of 51
seats in the past two elections.
Forty-eight districts won by
John McCain in the 2008 pres-


idential race are currently rep-
resented by Democratic House
members, making them obvi-
ous targets in a midterm elec-
tion when voters may send a
message of dissatisfaction
about the president and the
Democrat-controlled Congress.
Democrats argue that they
were all but certain to lose
seats in the midterm election,
because the president's party
usually loses a considerable
number of seats. But a year
ago, nobody thought that con-
trol of the House was in doubt,
and Democratic problems have
grown as the public changed its
focus from George W. Bush to
Obama. .
Democratic legislative
efforts, some of them success-
ful and some of them not, ener-
gized conservatives, providing
them with a broader narrative
about government spending,
the federal budget deficit and
government control. But it is
the economy, and particularly
the weak jobs outlook, that has
damaged Democratic electoral
prospects so seriously.
Republicans need to gain 39
seats in November to take back
control of the House of
Representatives. A year ago,
that seemed unlikely, but now
control of the House is very
much up for grabs. More than
70 Democratic House seats are
at risk, while only a handful of
GOP-held districts are in any
danger.
Polling conducted in individ-
ual competitive .House races
shows the same thing over and


over: Democratic incumbents
are under-performing even
against unknown Republican
challengers. This is particularly
true in Republican and swing
districts where the Democrat
supported the economic stimu-
lus, health care reform and the
climate bill, which included the
cap-and-trade provision.
Even veteran Democrats
who have been in Congress for
years and have survived diffi-
cult environments such as
House Budget Chairman John
Spratt-of South Carolina, Ways
and Means member Earl
Pomeroy of North Dakota and
Appropriations subcommittee.
Chairman Chet Edwards of
Texas now find themselves
fighting for their political lives.
At this point, Republicans
appear likely to gain at least 25
seats in the House, with possi-
ble gains reaching well into the
40s, or even more, if the GOP
wave reaches tsunami size.
In the Senate, where
Republicans have only 41 seats
and need to add 10 for a major-
ity, substantial GOP gains are
also likely, At least 11
Democratic-held seats are at
risk, but a handful of
Republican-held seats, all of
them open because of retire-
ments, are also competitive.
Senate Majority Leader
Harry Reid, D-Nev., has bene-
fited from the stumbles of his
GOP challenger, Sharron
Angle, but that race is still a
tossup. And in Florida,
Independent candidate Charlie
Crist continues to hold a nar-


row lead over Republican nom-
inee Marco Rubio. But in most
of the other competitive Senate
contests, Republicans seem to
have some momentum.
Republicans seem assured of
gaining four or five Senate
seats at a minimum, with gains
of five to eight seats more like-
ly. In a huge wave, double-digit
gains are not impossible.
Of course, Democrats have'
more than two months to try to
limit the damage, and they will
use their resources to try to
change the election from being
a referendum on President
Obama and the Democratic
Congress to being a choice
between Democrats who are
tackling tough issues and mak-
ing progress and a Republican
Party that wants to return to the
Bush years.
Unfortunately for the presi-
dent's party, voters understand
Democrats didn't create the
economic mess, but they aren't
confident that the White House
and Democratic Congressional
leaders have the right solutions.
On the campaign trail,
Democrats are trying to
'improve their prospects by
investing in an effort to turn
out voters in November who
voted for Obama but don't nor-
mally vote in midterm elec-
tions.
Two months is indeed an
eternity in politics, and we all
have learned to expect the
unexpected. But the current
landscape is terrible for
Democrats, and the only ques-
tion is the size of their losses.


Obama's zealous new civil rights enforcer


BY BYRON YORK

"I love this job," said
Thomas Perez, the hard-charg-
ing head of the Justice
Department's Civil Rights
Division, in a speech last
December to the liberal legal
group American Constitution
Society. "We have a very
broad, a very ambitious vision.
It's a very exciting vision, and
I wake up every morning with
a hop in my step."
There's no doubt Tom Perez
is hopping a lot these days. Of
all the transformations that
have taken place in the Obamna
administration, perhaps none is
so radical as that within the
Civil Rights Division. Under
Perez, it is bigger, richer and
more aggressive than ever, with
a far more expansive view of
its authority than at any time in
recent history.
Perez is playing a leading
role in the Justice Department's
lawsuit against Arizona's new
immigration law. He is promis-
ing a huge increase in prosecu-
tion of alleged hate crimes. He
vows to use "disparate impact
theory" to pursue discrimina-
tion cases where there is no
intent to discriminate but a dif-
ference in results, such as in
test scores or mortgage lend-
ing, that Perez wants to
change. He is even considering


a crackdown on websites on
the theory that the Internet is a
"public accommodation" as
defined by the Americans with
Disabilities Act.
To do all this, Perez has
come up with some novel
ideas. For example, in a recent
lending discrimination case, he
forced the defendant who
settled the case without admit-
ting any wrongdoing to pay
not only the alleged victims
but to funnel $1 million to
unrelated "qualified organiza-
tions" to conduct social pro-
grams.
Perez is pushing just as hard
on'smaller issues. In a little-
noticed move last year, he
threatened several universities
because they took part in an
experimental program to allow
students to use the Amazon
Kindle for textbooks. At the
time, the Kindle was not fully
accessible to blind students,
and under pressure from
Perez, the schools agreed not
to offer the e-reader to any
students until it was fully
accessible to all.
Perez is pursuing his goals
with a lot of muscle, powered
by a major appropriations
increase in President Obama's
2010 budget. "I am going to be
calling each and every one of
you to recruit you, because
we've got 102 new positions in
T


our budget," Perez told the lib-
eral lawyers last year. "One,
hundred and two people, when
added to a base of 715 people
... that's a real opportunity to
make a difference."
Heading the Civil Rights
Division is the opportunity of a
lifetime for Perez. A former
aide to the late Sen. Ted
Kennedy, he was an activist
and later a councilman in
Montgomery County, Md.,
where he made a name for
himself pushing instate tuition
and drivers' licenses for illegal
immigrants. Now, he's on a
much bigger stage.
But his across-the-board
activism troubles some who
have 'a more restrained view of
the role of federal prosecutors.
Perez and his team "view civil-
rights enforcement from a per-
spective that they are doing
'justice' in a broad sense unre-
lated to the laws on the books,"
says Robert Driscoll, who
served in a top position in the
Bush Civil Rights Division.
"They are advancing the cause
of historical victims of discrim-
ination, as well as new classes
of people who are disfavored
by some in society."
As if to prove Driscoll's
point, Perez sometimes speaks
emotionally about the vast
scope of his responsibility. The
job of the Civil Rights


Division, he says, is to bring
light to Americans "living in
the shadows." There are "our
Muslim-American brothers
and sisters subject to post-9/11
backlash" and "communities
of color disproportionately
affected by the subprime melt-
down" and "LGBT brothers
and sisters ... forced to con-
front discrimination" and "all
too many children lacking
quality education." And many
more.
That's a big portfolio, espe-
cially when not all the prob-
lems in the world can be
solved by a federal lawsuit. To
Driscoll, the new Civil Rights
Division is acting "more like a
government-funded version of
an advocacy group such as the
ACLU or the NAACP Legal
Defense Fund than like gov-
ernment lawyers who apply
the facts to the law." At some
point in the future, Perez's crit-
ics believe, Congress and the
courts will rein in the division
for overreaching and bringing
unwarranted cases, as hap-
pened during the Clinton
years.
But that will come later,
especially if Republicans win
the House or Senate and can
subject Perez and the Justice
Department to serious over-
sight. For now, Thomas Perez
is just getting started.

Sink taps Smith as running mate in gov's race


By BRENDAN FARRINGTON
AP POLITICAL WRITER
JACKSONVILLE
Democrat Rod Smith is again
campaigning for the governor's
office -- as Alex Sink's running
mate. *
Smith, who lost the
Democratic nomination for gov-
ernor in 2006, said Tuesday he A
decided to accept Sink's offer S
after she assured him that he
would have a productive role in the admin-
istration.
"Sitting on my hands would not be
something I would be interested in doing,"
Smith said. "The job of the lieutenant gov-
ernor, if done correctly, is a partnership.
We'll use combined talents."
Smith's skills as a former senator and


ei
in


prosecutor will balance Sink's
experience as the state's chief
financial officer and as a former
bank president. Smith said he will
work with lawmakers on the
administration's agenda and
focus on judiciary and criminal
justice issues.
"The most important thing I
was looking for in a lieutenant-
ax governor was someone with
ik integrity and who cares as deeply
about Florida as I do," Sink said
in a statement. "As a former, prosecutor,
Rod knows how to root out corruption and
he will be a strong partner to clean up the
mess in Tallahassee."
Smith said Sink's background in the
financial and business world makes her a
strong candidate as the state still struggles
with its economy.


"I told her from day one that she brings
a .unique ability to this race. She has spent
a lifetime creating opportunity," Smith
said. "I really think that converts directly
to the needs of our next governor."
When he ran for governor, Smith felt he
could appeal to conservatives in North
Florida. Smith, 60, lives in rural Alachua
just north of Gainesville, has a folksy
charm and he's known for being able to
work across party lines. Those qualities
can also help Sink as she faces either
Attorney General Bill McCollum or for-
mer Columbia/HCA CEO Rick Scott, who
are vying for the Republican nomination.
Lawton "Bud" Chiles III, son of the for-
mer governor, is running as an independ-
ent.
Sink also considered Sen. Tony Hill of
Jacksonville, Tampa Mayor Pam lorio and
Tallahassee Mayor John Marks and sever-


al other potential running mates.
Sink and Smith were both raised on
farms.
"I love the fact that we'll have the top
two positions in the state filled by people
raised on farms. It means we'll get up
early and work hard," Smith said with a
laugh.
"I learned more important lessons in my
life in cow pens and pepper fields than I
may have learned in law school."
He said he doesn't 'feel any qualms
about being number two on the ticket after
seeking the top job four years ago.
"I for a long time wouldn't consider the
public life again, I have loved the private
practice," Smith said.
"I don't think you're settling when you
can make a difference. She convinced me
that I can help make a difference in this
state."


Tea partiers on congressional ballot


BY BILL KACZOR
ASSOCIATED PRESS WRITER
TALLAHASSEE -
'Patricia Sullivan, a local tea
:party movement leader in
'central Florida, thinks it's
,time for people to take the
'running of government
:away from professional
politicians and power bro-
Skers. That's what motivated
'the Eustis homemaker and
*mother of four home-
,schooled children to run for
Congress.
"Who best to put govem-
ment back in the hands of
the people than one of the
people?" Sullivan asked in a
* telephone interview.
She's one of at least a half
Dozen members of the con-
servative tea party move-
ment running for U.S.
House seats in Florida's
Aug. 24 primary one
Democrat and the rest
Republicans.
They are among 40
Republicans seeking nomi-
nations in 12 districts and 29
,Democrats in 11 districts.
Two Republican and five
Democratic incumbents
have drawn intraparty oppo-
sition, but all are favored to
be nominated again.
Political analysts also give
tea party activists little
chance of defeating oppo-
nents who usually are better
known, better organized and
better funded.
Their chances, said retired
University of South Florida
political scientist Darryl

Fla. launches
new website for
;election results
BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
TALLAHASSEE -
Florida is launching a new
website offering election
results including a tool for
tracking specific races.
Interim Secretary of State
Dawn K. Roberts said
Tuesday that the new site
will provide the results
quickly and easily as soon
as they come in.
The site called Florida
Election Watch is at
http://www.Enight.elec-
tions.myflorida.com. It will
get its first test during the
Aug. 24 primary election.
Results will hot be post-
ed, though, until after 8
p.m. EDT when polls close
in the western Panhandle,
which is on central time.

New pig moves
into Panama City
neighborhood
BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

PANAMA CITY A
new pig has moved to a
Panama City neighborhood.
The pig, or pigs as some
residents have reported see-
ing multiple porkers, takes
daily walks in the early
morning and makes day-
time appearances in high-
traffic areas.
It wanders around the
Cove, getting to know its
new home.
On Saturday, the pig
caused' a traffic jam at a
traffic light.
The Pig of the Cove
Facebook page picked up
after the Aug. 12 post
announcing a new Cove
pig. This isn't the first pig
to be seen around this town.
The original Cove Pig was
full-grown, unlike the new
one.
In 2009, residents regu-
larly saw it roaming at
night. Animal control offi-
cers eventually used a stun
gun and four tranquilizers
on it.
Residents believe it might
have moved to a nearby
neighborhood, presumably
to live a less public life.


Paulson, are "similar to
most third party candidates,
and that's slim to none."
Paulson, a Republican, said
they have influenced the
GOP's agenda, though, to
some degree.
Sullivan is one of seven
candidates seeking the
Republican nomination in
Florida's 8th District.
The winner will challenge
freshman Rep. Alan
Grayson, who narrowly
defeated Republican incum-
bent Ric Keller two years
ago. The Orlando Democrat,
unopposed in the primary, is
one of the Republicans' top
targets nationally.
The GOP has been ener-
gized by' Grayson's inflam-
matory comments. He's
called Republicans "knuck-
le-dragging Neanderthals"
and said their health care
plan amounted to wanting
people to 'die quickly"
when they get sick.
'Former Florida House
Speaker and ex-Senate
Majority Leader Daniel
Webster of Winter Garden is
the most recognizable of the
Republican contenders. He
got a late start, though, in a
field that includes Ocala
state Rep. Kurt Kelly as well
as lawyer and conservative
talk show host Todd Long
and builder Bruce
O'Donoghue, both of
Orlando. Besides Grayson,
the Republican nominee on
Nov. 2 will face George
Metcalfe, who is running
without party affiliation, and


financial adviser Peg
Dunmire, one of three
Florida congressional candi-
dates fielded by a new third
party, the Tea Party.
They may share the same
name, but the state-recog-
nized Tea Party is not affili-
ated with the largely
Republican tea party move-
ment. Both adhere to limited
government and anti-tax fis-
cal principles, but there's
bad blood between them
including a lawsuit chal-
lenging the Tea Party's right
to use that name.
Republicans say the new
party is a spoiler designed to
help Democrats by taking
votes from GOP candidates
- an allegation Tea Party
leaders deny. ,
Grayson's district is one
of six considered competi-
tive in Florida. Other
Democratic incumbents tar-
geted by the GOP are Reps.
Allen Boyd of Monticello,
Suzanne Kosmas of New
Smyrna Beach and Ron
Klein of Boca Raton.
Democrats, meanwhile,
have put bull's eyes on two
seats being vacated by
Republican incumbents. In
the 25th District, Rep. Mario
Diaz-Balart of Miami is
moving to a neighboring
district where he will suc-
,ceed his retiring brother,
Lincoln Diaz-Balart, with-
out opposition. In the 12th
District, Rep. Adam Putnam
of Bartow is running for
Florida agriculture commis-
sioner.

Gulf surface cleaner


Questions'

lurk far below

BY SETHI BORENSTEIN
AP SCIENCE WRITER

WASHINGTON Researchers
are warning that the Gulf of
Mexico oil spill is a bigger mess
than the government claims and
that a lot of crude is lurking deep
below the surface, some of it set-
tling perhaps in a critical undersea
canyon off the Florida Panhandle.
The evidence of microscopic
amounts of oil mixing into the soil
of the canyon was gathered by sci-
entists at the University of South
Florida, who also found poisoned
plant plankton the vital base of
the ocean food web which they
blamed on a toxic brew of oil and
dispersants.
Their work is preliminary, hasn't
been reviewed by other scientists,
requires more tests to confirm it is
BP's oil they found, and is based
on a 10-day research cruise that
ended late Monday night.
Scientists who were not involved
said they were uncomfortable
drawing conclusions based on such
a brief look. But those early find-
ings follow a report on Monday
from Georgia researchers that said
as much as 8.0 percent of the oil
from the spill remains in the Gulf.
Both groups' findings have already
been incorporated into lawsuits
filed against BP.
Both groups paint a darker sce-
nario than that of federal officials,
who two weeks ago announced
that most of the oil had dissolved,
dispersed or been removed, leaving
just a bit more than a quarter of the
amount that spewed from the well
that exploded in April.
At the White House on Aug. 4,
National Oceanic and Atmospheric
Administration chief. Jane
Lubchenco said: "At least 50 per-
cent of the oil that was released is
now completely gone from the sys-
tem, and most of the remainder is
degrading rapidly or is being
removed from the beaches."
That's not what the scientists
from South Florida and Georgia
found.
"The oil is not gone, that's for
sure," University of South
Florida's David Hollander said
Tuesday. "There is oil and we need
to deal with it."
University of Georgia's
Samantha Joye said: "It's a
tremendous amount of oil that's in
the system. ... It's very difficult for
me to imagine that 50 percent of it
has been degraded."
Marine scientist Chuck
Hopkinson, also with the

Survey technician Jim Burkitt adjusts bottles used to capture subsurface water samples on a Conductivity-
Temperature-Depth, or CTD, carousel onboard the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration
research vessel Henry B. Bigelow near the coast of Louisiana, Saturday. The vessel is operating near the
site of the Deepwater Horizon oil wellhead to collect subsurface water samples for analysis onshore as
well as monitor oil and gas seepage on the seafloor. Scientists are giving different estimates on how much
oil remains in the ocean and the long terms effects on the environment. AP Photo/Patrick Semansky


University of Georgia, raised the
obvious question: "Where has all
the oil gone? It hasn't gone any-
where. It still lurks in the deep."'
NOAA spokesman Justin
Kenney defended his agency's cal-
culations, saying they are "based
on direct measurements whenever
possible and the best available sci-
entific estimates where direct
measurements were not possible."
But the vast majority of it is based
on "educated scientific guesses,"
because unless the oil was being
burned or skimmed, measurements
weren't possible, NOAA response
scientist Bill Lehr said earlier this
month.
What is happening in the Gulf is
the outcoqre of a decision made
early on in the fighting of the spill:
to use dispersants to keep the sur-
fa6e and beaches as clean as possi-
ble, at the expense of keeping oil
stuck below the surface, said
Monty Graham, a researcher at the
Dauphin Island Sea Lab in'
Alabama who was not part of the
latest work. Oil degrades far more
slowly in cooler, deeper waters
than it would at the surface.
At the surface and the top 100
feet or so, it is obvious why oil is
harmful, fouling marshes and ham-
pering sea turtles, fish, birds and
other life. Deep down, the effects
are subtler, less direct. Oil at that
depth can chip away at the base of


the food web plant plankton -
and that could cause animals to.go
hungry. Reduced oxygen levels
from natural gas and oil could also
starve creatures of oxygen.
: At depths of 900 to 3,300 feet,
the University, of South Florida
researchers found problems with
plant plankton. About two-fifths of
the samples showed "some degree
of toxicity."
"We found general phytoplank-
ton health to be poor," Hollander
said. By comparison, in non-oiled
southern parts of the Gulf, the
plant plankton were healthy,
researchers said. ;
That makes sense because past
research has shown that when oil
when gets into the cell membranes
of plankton, it causes all sorts of
problems, said Paul' Falkowski, a
marine scientist at Rutgers
University who was not part of the
research. However, he said plant
plankton don't live long anyway.
They have about a week's lifespan,
he said, and in a few months this
insult to the base of the 'food web
could be history.
Still, the brew that is poisoning
the plankton may linger and no one
knows for how long, Hollander
said.
The Florida researchers used
ultraviolet light to illuminate
micro-droplets of oil deep under-
water. When they did that, "it


looked like a constellation of
stars," Hollander said.
He also found the oil deposited
in the sea bottom near the'edges of
the significant DeSoto Canyon,
about 40 miles southwest of
Panama City, .Fla., suggesting oil
may have settled, intothat canyon.
The canyon is an important mixing
area for cold, nutrient-laden water
and warmer surface water. It is also
key for currents and an important
fisheries area.
"Clearly the oil down in the
abyss, there's nothing we can do
about it," said Ed Overton of
Louisiana State University. He said
the environment at the surface or
d6wn to 100 feet or. so is "rapidly
going back to normal," with
shrimpers starting -their harvest.
But oil below 1,000 feet degrades
much more slowly, he said.
Joye has measured how- fast nat-
ural gas, which also spewed from
the BP well, can degrade in water,
and it may take as much as 500
days for large pools to disappear at
3,000 feet below the sea. That nat-
ural gas starves oxygen from the
water, she said.
"You're'talking about a best-case
situation of a year's turnover time,"
Joye said.

Jury deadlocks on all but 1 charge against Blago


BY DON BABWIN AND MICHAEL TARM
ASSOCIATED PRESS WRITERS

CHICAGO A federal jury deadlocked
Tuesday on all but one of 24 charges against for-
mer Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich, including
the most explosive of all that he tried to sell
an appointment to President Barack Obama's
old Senate seat. Blagojevich was convicted on a
single, less serious count of lying to federal
agents.
Prosecutors pledged to retry the case as soon
as possible.
"This jury shows you that the government
threw everything but the kitchen sink at me,"
Blagojevich said outside court. "They could not
prove I did anything wrong except for one
nebulous charge from five years ago."
But one juror said the panel was deadlocked
11-1 in favor of convicting Blagojevich.of trying
to auction off the Senate seat.
Juror Erik Sarnello of Itasca, Ill., said one


woman on the jury "just didn't see what we all
saw." The 21-year-old/Sarnello said the counts
involving the Senate seat were "the most obvi-
ous."
Other jurors tried to persuade the holdout to
reconsider, but "at a certain point, there was no
changing," he said.
That so many jurors were convinced of
Blagojevich's guilt bodes well for prosecutors,
.said Joel Levin, a former federal prosecutor in
Chicago who won a conviction of former
Illinois' Gov. George Ryan on corruption
charges. &
"At the end of the day it signals very strongly
they will get a conviction next time," Levin said.
"It sounds like the case was lost in jury selec-
tion."
Blagojevich known for his showmanlike,
over-the-top personality showed no emotion
as the verdict was read. Before jurors came in,
he sat with his hands folded, looking down and
picking nervously at his fingernails. He and his

Spina was unable to process his

affected by the outage, and it was
assisting with dispatch for Jackson
and Holmes counties, according to
an official at the Washington
County Sheriff's Office.
Basic 911 service was available
in Jackson County. However, the
"enhanced" part of 911 service that
provides the locations from where
calls are made from was down,
'according to Major Donnie Branch
of the Jackson County Sheriff's
Office.
Branch said the outage did not
affect service to the resident of the
county.
Sheriff's office officials had to
rely on transmitting information
through radios, because patrol vehi-
cle computers couldn't be used to
communicate with dispatchers.
"We went back to the old way we
did business," Branch said.


She said she is knowledgeable
about the laws and issues that
school board members face.
Gardner is married to Bill
Gardner, a retired educator and
coach.
"Over the past four years I have

lawyer said they would appeal the conviction.
The verdict came on the 14th day of delibera-
tions, ending an 11-week trial during which a
foul-mouthed Blagojevich was heard on secret
FBI wiretap tapes saying the power to name a
senator was "(expletive) golden" and that he
wasn't going to give it up "for' (expletive) noth-
ing."
The count on which Blagojevich was convict-
ed included accusations that he lied to federal
agents when he said he did not track campaign
contributions. But the jury did not convict him
on a related allegation that he kept a "firewall"
between political campaigns and government
work. It carries a sentence of up to five years in
prison. Some of the more serious charges, such
as racketeering, carried up to a 20-year penalty.
Blagojevich vowed to appeal the single con-
viction'and declared that he was a victim of per-
secutiorr by the federal government. He told
reporters that he wants the "people of Illinois to
know that I did not lie to the FBI."

Other government offices were
affected.
The Department of Motor
Vehicles could not issue tags,
license plates or new driver's licens-
es, according to Sherry Brown, the
Jackson County tax collector.
"It's basically put us out of busi-
ness," Brown said.
The tax collector's office was not
affected because tax rolls are on an
in-house system.
The Jackson County Courthouse
was still in session Tuesday, but
officials were unable to access any
state systems due to the Internet
outage.
Supervisor of Elections, Sylvia
Stephens said early voting was not
affected on Tuesday, but her office
could not print or issue voter identi-
fication cards or accept changes of
address.

BP has taken full responsibility for the cleanup in the Gulf. And that
includes keeping'you informed.

Searching For And Cleaning Up The Oil
You may have heard that oil is no longer flowing into the Gulf. But every
morning our spotter planes and helicopters continue to search for oil
off the coast, heading to areas previously mapped with satellite imagery
and infrared photography. If oil is found, they radio down to the ships
and boats of all sizes that are supporting the cleanup effort and working to
collect the oil. These are local shrimping and fishing boats organized
into task forces and strike teams, plus specialized skimmers mobilized
from around the world.

We have recovered more than 35 million gallons of oil-water mixture from
the Gulf. Other methods have also helped remove millions of additional
gallons of oil from the water. We've deployed millions of feet of boom
to protect beaches and sensitive wildlife areas.

Hurricane Preparedness
In the event of a hurricane, our first priority is keeping people safe. In
coordination with the Coast Guard and local officials, we may suspend
operations temporarily but have organized to resume them as soon
as possible.

Our Responsibility
We-have already spent more than $3.9 billion responding to the spill
and on the cleanup, and none of this will be paid by taxpayers. We
will work in the Gulf as long as it takes to get this done. We may not
always be perfect but we will do everything we can to make this right.

Whitson picks





UF over MLB


Chipley Tigers right-hander spurns

Padres' offer to attend Florida


BY DUSTIN KENT
FLORIDAN SPORTS EDITOR
Former Chipley Tigers star pitcher
Karsten Whitson has turned down a profes-
sional offer from San Diego Padres, and
will instead attend the University of Florida.
Whitson, who was drafted with the ninth
pick in the June MLB draft, faced a Monday
night deadline to sign a professional con-
tract or head to college.
The 6-foot, 4-inch right-hander signed
with Florida in November of last year, and
will play for head coach Kevin O'Sullivan
in 2011.
Whitson said he was hoping that a deal
could be struck with the Padres up until the
deadline, but it simply didn't work out.
He spoke with the. Padres assistant gener-
al manager shortly before the 11 p.m. CST
deadline Monday night, in an effort to make
something happen.
"With 30 minutes left, I said, 'Let's get a
deal done,'" Whitson said."
But the San Diego offer of $2.41 million
didn't change. Whitson decided to move on.
"I'was definitely looking a little south of
that number,," he said. "It was tough. I was
going into the day very optimistic in hoping
both sides would agree on a deal in the mid-
dle.
"I wasn't trying to blow the Padres out of
the water by any means. But it just didn't
work out.'I'm very happy with the deci-
sion."


"I'm really excited about
going to college and pitching
for UF. It has been a dream of
mine before pro ball."
-Karsten Whitson,
University of Florida pitcher

The No. 8 pick in this year's draft, Delino
DeShields Jr., signed with the Houston
Astros for $2.15 million earlier this month.
Last year, the No. 9 draft pick,'pitcher
Jacob Turner, signed with the Detroit Tigers
for a reported $4.7 million.
Whitson's father, Kent, said his son's
decision was an easy one.
"He just had a value on his talent, and put
himself at a certain value. The team, based
on the monetary value of their offer, didn't
see the value that Karsten felt was warrant-
ed by his abilities," he said.
"He was basically able to hold his
ground. The two sides just couldn't get
together to get it done. The reality was that,
whatever Karsten's number was, it didn't
matter. Their number was just over ($2 mil-
lion), and that was not enough to take him
* away from fulfilling his dream to go to UF
and try to help lead them to a national title."

BY DUSTIN KENT
FLORIDAN SPORTS EDITOR
The Grand Ridge Indians
improved their previous year's
record by one game in 2009.
In 2010, the Indians will look
for further improvement under
second-year coach Ken Granger.
A former assistant coach with
Grand Ridge, Granger became
the Indians' head man last sea-
son. He led them to a 3-3 record,
a game better than their 2-4 mark
in 2008.
The Indians began practice on
Monday with aspirations of mak-
ing even more noise this year.
"That's going to be my goal,"
Granger said. "Every coach
wants to go undefeated, but my
goal is to be better, to have a bet-
ter record than last year."
The Indians will have some big
holes to fill this season, after.the
departure of starting quarterback
Wayne Driggers, versatile play-
maker Darius Williams and
offensive lineman Kyle
Commodore.
But Grand Ridge does return
seven starters on offense and
seven on defense, including four
starting offensive linemen and
top running backs Kurt Willis and
Kenneth Saffold.
Granger said the duo of Willis
and Saffold will be key to the
Indians' success this season.
"The backs will be the strength
of the team," the coach said.
"We're experienced there.
They're tough, and they've got
speed. I just hope they'll be able
to execute. They had a good year
last year."
Saffold is the quicker of the
two backs, while Willis provides


"We want a higher
percentage of execution
than we had last year
... This year, we've got
to take it one play at a
time."
-Ken Granger,
Grand Ridge coach

the power.
"Saffold came through at the
end for us last season. He ran it
well, and he sort of exploded
toward the end of the year,"
Granger said. "Willis is just a
power back. He doesn't try to run
around you. He wants to run over
you. We'll be looking for him to
run the ball more this year."
Adding to the backfield will be
seventh grader Shelly Ray
Simpson, who didn't play last
season.
Granger said he thinks
Simpson will add a valuable
dimension to the running game.
S"He's pretty physical and pret-
ty fast," the coach said. "He'll
add some extra strength to the
backfield. He's fast and slender,
but just tough. He kind of
reminds me of Willis, but taller."
Former wide receiver Rudy
Campbell will likely be the
Indians' signal-caller this year,
according to Granger.
It will be a tough task to
replace Driggers, who was the
Indians' work horse last season.
"He's a very bright kid, very

Pirates looking for new offensive stars


BY DUSTIN KENT
FLORIDAN SPORTS EDITOR


For the past three seasons, the
Sneads Pirates have had little to
worry about in the backfield.
Much of that was due to for-
mer star tailback Mark Lawson,
who rushed for 1,000 or more
yards in each of the last three
seasons.
In the last two seasons,
Lawson, combined for 2,800
yards and 27 touchdowns.
But with' Lawson graduating,
along with backfield mates Jeff
Davis and quarterback Terrance
Green starting fullback Jamar
White is also no longer with the
team the Pirates are essential-
ly starting from scratch.
"It's big shoes to fill now,"
Sneads coach Don Dowling said
of replacing the backfield. "So
far, (the new Sneads players)
have done alright. We've only
had the spring jamboree, but we
did well in that game."
In that jamboree, Sneads beat
Wewahitchka 22-8 in one half,
before losing to Port St. Joe 7-0
in the second half.
Rising senior running back
Xavier Eutsay starred in that
game, rushing for 150 yards and
two touchdowns for Sneads.
He will be onepf a handful of
Pirates Who will be counted on
to try to pick up the slack left by
the former Sneads stars.
Sophomore Delontre Keys
will also man the backfield for
the Pirates, with Josh Rogers set
to step in at fullback.
Aaron Green will also play
some fullback, with young

Sneads quarterback Trent McDaniel, left, hands the ball off to

backs Jaylen Williams and
Joseph Boyd also set to see time
as ballcarriers.
Dowling said each back
brings something different to the
table.
"Xavier is a speed guy. He's
going to take off and turn the
corner if you don't get a hand on
him quick," the coach said. "He
can take it the distance. (Keys)
is a bruiser. He runs good, but
he's got more weight on him.
Josh is long and lanky, but he's
big and strong.
"All of our guys are inter-
changeable. We could move
(Keys.) to fullback at times, we
can move them all around. But


whoever runs it the best, he will
get it at that time."
Dowling said the ball could be
spread out much more than it
was last season, when Lawson
and Davis got the bulk of the
carries.
"We'll try to do it like we did
in the spring, and try to keep all
6f them fresh," he said. "They'll
get quality reps and snaps for
sure, just to keep folks fresh.
"I've never had a team where
I had so many subs I can run in
and out. It's always been one or
two guys that got the bulk of it,
so I don't know how it's going

BY JON KRAWCZYNSKI
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
EDEN PRAIRII, Minn. Brett Favre is
back in the building.
The 40-year-old quarterback returned to
Minnesota on Tuesday, arriving in a private
jet trimmed in the Vikings' purple and gold
with three teammates who were sent to
Hattiesburg, Miss., to bring him back for
one more shot at-a Super Bowl.
This time around, Favre got a ride to
Vikings headquarters from kicker and close
friend Ryan Longwell last year, when he
joined Minnesota, head coach Brad
Childress was at the wheel. Longwell's
black BMW SUV was followed by three
helicopters from local television stations
and pulled into Vikings headquarters as
dozens of fans cheered and photographers
snapped pictures. At one point, Favre waved
to the media and fans.
"Brett Favre for President!!" receiver
Bernard Berrian tweeted.
Favre's website posted a message earlier
saying "stay tuned for breaking news from
the Minnesota Vikings today on Brett
Favre's possible return."

whose forte is his expertise in working with
pitchers.
"I can understand how people have difficulty
with wondering how he could turn down $2
million, but he felt his value was more than
that, and he has every right in the world to hold
his ground," Kent said. "The money is nice, but
it doesn't replace other opportunities. His first
dream was not to play professional baseball, it
was to play college baseball.
S"If he had to make this decision 100 days in
a row, it wouldn't change."

Jon Johnson of the Dothan Eagle contributed

and returns much of its roster. With the addition
of Whitson, Florida should become one of the
favorites to win the national title in 2011.
"It's a big deal for me," Whitson said of
going to Florida. "They went to the World
Series last year, and hopefully I'll be able to
make a big impact."
Both Whitson's father and mother, Melissa
Whitson, graduated from UF. His father said he
believed Karsten was doing what was in his.
best interests.
"It was 100 percent his decision," Kent said.
"Being a part of a possible championship team,

appeals to him. He gets to play for a head coach


three years before being,; eligible to be'selected
in the MLB draft again.
He called Florida head coach Kevin
0'Sullivan Monday night to tell him the news.
"I said, 'Hey coach, I have some bad news -
you have to put up with me for the next three
years,'" Whitson said.
"I'm really excited about going to college
and pitching for UF. It has been a dream of
mine before pro ball."
Whitson went 7-3 with 123 strikeouts in 55
innings last season for Chipley. He'll soon be
enrolled at UF and Will start classes Monday.
Whitson will join a Gator team that is coming

Favre
Continued From Page 1B
Presumably, Favre did
not make the trip just to tell
the Vikings he was retiring,
but the team has still not
given an official confirma-
tion that the star quarter-
back will play this year.
Favre will turn 41 in
October and has flirted with
retirement for years, while
playing for the Green Bay
Packers, the New York Jets
and now the Vikings.
He threw 33 touchdowns
and seven interceptions last
season to help Minnesota
reach the NFC title game.
The three-time MVP had
been thinking about hang-
ing it up again this year
after injuring his ankle in
the NFC championship loss
to New Orleans last
January. '
He had surgery on his left
ankle in June, and told
teammates and some team
officials earlier in August
that it hadn't healed enough
for him to return for a 20th
NFL season.
Yet no one in the organi-
zation fully bought into that
- partly because they went
through a similar ordeal in
2009.
Last year, Favre told the
team on the eve of training
camp that he was going to
stay retired only to return
the Tuesday. after their first
preseason game. The
Vikings played their first
exhibition game of 2010, a
28-7 win over the Rams, on
Saturday.
Favre visited Dr. James
Andrews in Florida last
week to get a checkup on
his ankle and the Vikings
sent Longwell, Jared Allen
and Steve Hutchinson -
three of his closest friends
on the team to
Mississippi to woo him one
final time.

NY gov. aims to meet with mosque developers


BY BETH FOUHY AND
MICHAEL GORMLEY
ASSOCIATED PRESS WRITERS

ALBANY, N.Y. Gov. David
Paterson, who last week suggest-
ed that a proposed Islamic center
and mosque near ground zero
might want to consider a different
location, will meet soon with the
developers, a spokesman said
Tuesday.
Paterson's office declined to
say what the meeting would be
about, but Rep. Peter King told
The Associated Press that the
governor wants to discuss possi-,
ble alternate locations for the
Park51 Islamic cultural center
and mosque; King said he spoke
with the governor Tuesday.
Representatives of the project
said no meeting had been sched-
uled yet. Paterson last week
offered his help and the possibili-


ty that state land could be provid-
ed as an alternate site for the cen-
ter. The project has ignited
nationwide debate over freedom
of religion and anger over the
Sept. 11 terrorist attacks.
The planned $100 million cen-
ter would be built two blocks
from the World Trade Center site,
where nearly 2,800 people died
when Islamic extremists flew jets
into the twin towers. The project
is headed by Imam Faisal Abdul
Rauf, a Muslim cleric who has'
worked to improve relations
between Islam and the West.
Morgan Hook, a Paterson
spokesman, said talks were under
way between the governor's
office and representatives of
Park51 to set up a meeting
between Paterson and the pro-
ject's leaders,
"We are working with the
developers on a staff level but


there have not been any formal
discussions between the governor
and imam or developer," Hook
said. "We expect to have a meet-
ing scheduled in the near future."
Mosque spokesman Oz Sultan
released a statement Tuesday
saying he did not believe a meet-
ing had been scheduled yet.
"We appreciate the governor's
interest as we continue to have
conversations with many offi-
cials," Sultan said.
One of the most strident oppo-
nents of the.project, Republican
candidate for governor Carl
Paladino, supports the talks
sought by the Democratic gover-
nor. A mosque near ground zero
would be like erecting a Japanese
Navy memorial at Pearl Harbor,
Paladino said,
"If. Gov. Paterson's meeting
brings about an agreeable legal
solution which puts no burden on


the taxpayers, it deserves full
consideration," spokesman
Michael Caputo said.
The Washington Post first
reported the talks were under
way.
King, the ranking minority
leader of the Homeland Security
Committee, said that he had spo-
ken to Paterson on Tuesday and
' that the' governor expected the
meeting to take place within
days.
"He said he is meeting in the
next day or so with the develop-
ers and the leaders of the. mosque
to discuss his .proposal to move it
to state land. My understanding
was the imam is going to be
there," King told the AP.
Rauf was scheduled to leave
this week on a two-week trip to
the Middle East as part of a reli-
gious outreach effort by the State
Department.

A car is lifted out of a Edisto River in Orangeburg, S.C. Monday, Aug 16, 2010. The bodies of two toddlers were
recovered Monday from the car submerged in the river and their mother was charged with leaving the scene as
authorities investigated whether it was .an accident. Orangeburg County Sheriff\Larry Williams said the boys,
ages 1 and 2, were recovered from the North Edisto River after the car was found near a rural boat- landing. -

SC mom killed kids, dumped car in river


BY MEG KINNARD
ASSOCIATED PRESS WRITER
ORANGEBURG -
Investigators didn't buy it
when a woman said her two
young sons drowned after-
her car plunged into a river.
She ultimately confessed to
killing .the toddlers, they
say not by dumping
them in the water but by
suffocating them earlier
with her own hands.
Broke, jobless and berat-
ed by her mother for her
failings, Shaquan Duley
killed the boys, ages 2 years
and .18 months, then
strapped their bodies into
their car seats before rolling
the vehicle into the. North
Edisto River in a desperate
cover-up attempt, authori-
ties said Tuesday.
"She truly felt, 'If I don't
have these toddlers, I can be
free,'" Orangeburg County
Sheriff Larry Williams said
at a. news conference. "I
think she was fed up with
her mother telling her she
couldn't take care of the
children, or she wasn't tak-
ing care of the children and
just wanted to be free."
Coroner Samuetta
Marshall told several media
outlets Tuesday the older
boy had defensive wounds
that suggested he had been
in a struggle.


Monday's tragic scene of
a car being pulled out of the
water With children's bod-
ies inside was eerily remi-
niscent of the 1994 case of
another South Carolina
mother, Susan Smith, who
is serving life in prison for
killing her young sons by
rolling her car into a lake in
the northwest part of the
state..
Duley, 29, was to be
arraigned on murder
charges Wednesday.
Authorities were not sure if
she had an attorney..
I She lived with her sons, a
5-year-old daughter and her
mother in a rented home
along a street, filled with
boarded-up, abandoned
houses in Orangeburg,
about 35 miles south of
Columbia, South Carolina's'
capital. Out of work and
estranged from the chil-
dren's father, Duley relied
on her mother to support
her and her children,
Williams said.
The. sheriff said Duley
told investigators her moth-
er.constantly harangued her
about her failures as a
mother and inability to pro-
vide for her family finan-
cially.
Leaving her daughter at
the house after a night of
arguing with her mother
Sunday, Duley strapped 2-


year-old Devean C. Duley
and 18-month-old Ja'van T.
Duley into their car seats
and drove the boys to an
Orangeburg motel several
miles from where she lived.
It was there, in a comer
room tucked at the back of
the rundown, one-story
motel complex, that Duley
suffocated the boys with
her hands late that night,
Williams said. On Tuesday,
red evidence tape still
sealed the door to that room
shut.
Distraught and not know-
ing what to do, Duley
strapped the boys into their
car seats and drove to a boat
ramp some 10 miles away,
investigators said. They
said Duley rolled her car
into the water, watching-as
it sank into the slow-mov-
ing current, then took off on
foot.
Without a cell phone,
Duley. walked some dis-
tance down a country road,
flagging down a passing
motorist to call the
Highway Patrol at around
6:15 a.m. Monday. Later
that morning, authorities
pulled the car from 'the
water with Ja'van and
Devean still strapped into
their car seats.
Duley was initially
charged only with leaving
the scene of an accident, but


Williams said deputies
knew there was more to the
story than she was telling.
There were no skid marks
on the roads leading to the
water, and no obvious signs
of a crash:
"We felt that the story she
was telling us wasn't factu-
al," Williams said. I
Williams said Duley
eventually admitted to a
female deputy after hours
of questioning that she
killed the boys, citing the
pressures of being a parent
and the pressure she felt
from her own mother. He
said Duley expressed little
remorse about the deaths.
"I think that the opportu-
nity presented itself and she
reacted to whatever condi-
tion presented itself for her
to get rid of the children,"
Williams said.,
Duley's mother declined
to speak with reporters
camped outside her home
Tuesday. A woman who
would not identify herself
came outside and asked
reporters to leave, saying,
"We are grieving right now.
We need our privacy."
The state agency respon-
sible for child welfare in
South Carolina said it has
had no involvement with
Duley. Williams said the 5-
year-old girl is now staying
with Duley's mother.

Judge throws out piracy

charges against 6 Somalis


BY STEVE SZKOTAK
ASSOCIATED PRESS WRITER
RICHMOND, Va. A judge on
Tuesday dismissed piracy charges against
six Somali men accused of attacking a
Navy ship off the coast of Africa, conclud-
ing the U.S. government failed to make the
case their alleged actions amounted. to
piracy.
The dismissal of the piracy count by
U.S. District Judge Raymond A. Jackson
tosses the most serious charge against the
men, but leaves intact seven other charges
related to the alleged April 10 attack on the
USS Ashland in the Gulf of Aden. A pira-
cy conviction carries a mandatory life
term. Defense attorneys argued last month
that the Ashland defendants did not meet
the U.S. legal definition of piracy because
they did not take command of and rob the
amphibious dock landing ship.
Jackson agreed in his ruling, finding that
the government "failed to establish that
any unauthorized acts of violence or
aggression committed on the high seas
constitutes piracy as defined by the law of
nations."
Jackson, who issued the ruling from
Norfolk, wrote that the government was


attempting to use "an enormously broad
standard under a novel construction of the
statute" that would contradict a nearly
200-year-old Supreme Court decision,
United States v. Smith.
The six are accused of attacking the
Ashland in a skiff, though they claim they
were ferrying refugees. The Ashland is
610 feet long and designed to carry hover-
craft and other vehicles for amphibious
assaults. The skiff was destroyed by one of
the ship's 25mm cannons. One occupant of
the skiff was killed and several others were
injured.
Attorneys for five other Somali defen-
dants accused in a similar attack on the
USS Nicholas are also seeking dismissal
of the piracy count, citing similar argu-
ments. A hearing is scheduled for Sept. 9
before a different judge in Norfolk.
The' Justice Department said it was
reviewing Jackson's ruling. "We will obvi-
ously be moving forward with the prose-
cution of the case and we will consider
any options we may have with today's rul-
ing," a' spokesman said in a statement.
"The bottom line is there's no piracy
because there was no robbery at sea," said
Robert Rigney, who is representing
Mohammed Abdi Jamah.

"Forget a compact."


Dear Annie: My wife of almost 30 years
passed away several years ago, and after griev-
ing for more than a year, I reluctantly tried
online dating. Just when I was about to call it
quits, I met a lovely widow who had had many
lousy relationships after her husband died.
"Hannah" and I had instant chemistry. She
knows I am not like the abusive men she dated
before. We live six hours apart and are
able to see each other for a few days
every month. Her adult children and
friends really like me, and my adult
children and friends think she is .'-
good for me. We've been dating for f Ja
two years. Hannah knows I.would
many her in a heartbeat, but she
won't say "yes." Her reasons are that -
I have a few more years before I can retire
and leave my current home, and she has an
elderly mother who is very dependent on her.
Hannah has gone back to school for a sec-
ond degree, which will not be completed for
another three years. In order to finish, she may
have to move farther away. She's perfectly con-
tent to see me less often. She has her family to
keep her company, but I get very lonely. I told
Hannah that I'd occasionally like to go out with
another woman for coffee or lunch just to have
an adult to talk with. She says that is wrong
since we are in a committed relationship.
Am I being unreasonable to want some adult
conversation from time to time, or should I sit
at home alone every night watching TV while
she has friends and relatives to entertain her?
Quandary in Florida '
Dear Florida: Right now, you and Hannah

.This deal is the same as yesterday's. Then, when West led
his singleton club against four spades, East erred by covering
dummy's six with his jack. West, reading this as a suit-prefer-
ence signal for hearts, took the second trick and shifted to a
heart, letting the contract make. East should have played his
club three at trick one, signaling for diamonds. Then the con-
tract would have failed. However, South could have made the
contract without requiring the misdefense how?
As I also mentioned yesterday, after opener rebids, it is a
good idea to use some form of checkback. This is an econom-
ical inquiry, two clubs or two diamonds, that allows responder
to look for the best game (or slam) without being forced to leap
like a lamb in springtime with his rebid.
West's club lead is surely a.singleton. If so, and he has two
or three low trumps, or three trumps to the ace or king, South
has no chance. Declarer. must assume that West has only
honor-doubleton. But then South must stop East from gaining
the lead while West still has a low spade in his hand. And
East's entry would have to be the diamond ace.
At trick two, South cashes his heart ace. He then overtakes
his heart queen with dummy's king and calls for the heart 10.
When East plays a low heart, declarer discards his diamond
queen a so-called dentist's coup. West is welcome to that
trick, but since East can no longer gain the lead while West still
has the spade five in his hand, the contract makes.

have a long-standing relationship without a
commitment. Still, if all you want is adult com-
pany, it might be a good idea to go out for cof-
fee or lunch with some of the guys and leave
the women alone. Otherwise, you risk losing
Hannah, commitment or not. But we'll be
frank: If you are looking for marriage, you
might need to look somewhere else.
Dear Annie: I'm 14 years old and have a
friend with a problem. "Mia" is a beau-
tiful girl, but is insecure. When she
feels depressed, she cuts herself.
I'm the only person she has told. I
made her promise me she wouldn't
0 do it again, and for a while, she did-
n't. But a few days ago, I found new
marks on her arm.
What do I do? Mia refuses to
\ \ talk about it with anyone else. I
suggested she see a psychiatrist
and even offered to go with her, but she did-
n't want to hear anything about it. How do I
help her without losing her trust? Scared
Dear Scared: You sound like a good friend
to Mia. It would be best if she could talk to her
parents, a school counselor, a favorite teacher
or an adult relative, but you can't force her, so
it's helpful that you listen to her. Suggest she
get some exercise. It boosts endorphin levels
and can make her feel less stressed. You also
can discuss the situation with your own par-
ents. Information and additional suggestions

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -
Your awareness of small details is
extremely acute, which is well-
and-good. Just don't become so
obsessed with what and how to
do things that you become unpro-
ductive.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -
When .with a sensitive friend,
weigh your words with consider-
able care. An off-the-cuff,
thoughtless remark could be so
abrasive to him/her that it leaves a
scar no bandage could cover.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22)-
Being in the presence of a penny-
pincher is likely to make you so
.uncomfortable that there will be
no way to relax and have a good
time. Select companions who are
equally as generous as you.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec.
21) -- Be extra mindful of your
behavior and remarks when in the
presence of anyone who could
influence your success or failure.
Everything you say or do may be
critically evaluated and cata-
logued.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan.
19) A nosy person who does-
n't have anybody's best interests
at heart is likely to try to pry

Be on guard, because s/he is pret-
Sty tricky.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19)
Although they may be well-
intentioned, friends with financial

give any advice. Do not take any-
thing at face value when it comes
to investment information.
PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20)
For the sake of your reputa-
tion, be prepared to stand behind
any commitment you make, espe-
cially if it is financial. If you advise
another and s/he loses, it needs to
be on your back.
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -
If someone asks you to perform a
critical- task, don't pretend you
can do. it or think you can, even
though you have no experience.
You'll be held accountable if you
botch things up.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -
Little things that appear to be
insignificant can-actually turn out
to be vitally important, so do not
take even the smallest detail for
granted, especially those that to
your financial affairs.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -
In order to succeed, you need to
place great importance on prais-
ing people while avoiding criti-
cism of others. If you desire to
maintain harmony within your
home or workplace, let tolerance
set the tone.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -
Wishful thinking isn't going to get
anything done. If you want some-
thing to be accomplished, be pre-
pared to roll up your sleeves and
swing into action.

UN: Millions without help in Pakistan floods


BY ASHRAF KHAN
ASSOCIATED PRESS WRITER

SUKKUR, Pakistan The World Bank
said Tuesday it will redirect $900 million
of its existing loans to Pakistan to help in
flood recovery, as the U.N. warned that
many of the 20 million people affected by
the disaster have yet to receive any emer-
gency aid.
The floods began three weeks ago but
the crisis could yet worsen, with-authori-
ties warning that the swollen Indus River
may burst its banks again in coming days.
Pakistan's shaky government has been
sorely tested by the disaster, which has
affected about a fifth of the area of this
vast country of 170 million people. It
comes atop a pile of other challenges
including a weak economy and a violent
Islamist insurgency.
Local charities and international agen-
cies have rushed food, water, shelter and


Bomber I

BY LARA JAKES
ASSOCIATED PRESS WRITER
BAGHDAD Young men from
some of Iraq's poorest areas waited
all night outside an army recruit-
ment center, only to become easy
prey Tuesday for a suicide bomber
who killed 61 of them. Desperate
for jobs, dazed survivors rushed to
get back in line after the attack.
Officials quickly blamed al-Qaida
for the deadliest single act of vio-
lence in the capital in months. Police
said 125 people were wounded.
Bodies of bloodied young men,
some still clutching job applications
in their hands, were scattered on the
ground outside the headquarters'
gate. Soldiers collected bits of flesh
and stray hands and legs as frantic
Iraqis showed up to search for rela-
tives. The early morning bombing in
central Baghdad starkly displayed
Iraqi forces' failure to plug even the
most obvious holes in their security
two weeks before the formal end of
the U.S. combat role in Iraq.
Army add police recruitment cen-
ters have been frequent targets for
militants, underscoring the determi-
nation of the applicants to risk their
lives for work in a country with an
unemployment rate estimated as
high as 30 percent.
"I have to get this job at any cost
in order to feed my family," said Ali
Ahmed, 34, a father of two who
returned to the bloody street after
taking a friend to the hospital. "I
have no option but to come back to
the line. If there were other job
opportunities, I would not be here in
the first place."
Ali Ibrahim, 21, who suffered
minor shrapnel wounds in the blast,
returned to the line after his release
from the hospital.
"I came back with my friend to
try to get in. We are forced to come
back for the sake of earning a living
by securing the job," said Ibrahim,
who had been waiting since 3 a.m.
Yasir Ali, a 29-year-old recruit,
washed blood off his body at a near-
by police station aAd then went back
to the line outside the Iraqi army's
llth Division headquarters and
recruiting center.
The men waited in vain. The
recruitment cefiter was shut down,
after the attack, and the military said
it would not reopen: Even so, some


medical treatment to the worst-hit areas in
the northwest and Punjab and Sindh
provinces. But aid agencies and the British
government have complained that the
international response to the disaster has
not been generous enough.
The U.N. appealed last week for $459
million for immediate relief efforts. It has
received 40 percent about $184 million
- of that so far, said Maurizio Giuliano, a
U.N. spokesman. An additional $43 mil-
lion has been pledged.
"We would like our pledges to turn into
checks as soon as possible because the sit-
uation is getting' very bad," Giuliano told
The Associated Press.
The World Bank said the funds it is
offering are to help Pakistan recover from
the floods and would be redirected from
ongoing and planned projects in the coun-
try.
With huge destruction to roads, bridges
and crops wiped in many areas, authorities


expect reconstruction to take years and
cost billions.
For now, many victims are living in
makeshift camps alongside their livestock
or in flooded towns and villages.
"The vast geographical extent of the
floods and affected populations meant that
many people have yet to be reached with
the assistance they desperately need," the
U.N. said in a statement. It also said the
number of children and breast-feeding
mothers affected and rising diarrhea cases
"point toward a clear risk of malnutrition
among the affected population."
The floods have killed about 1,500 peo-
ple and inundated 1.7 million acres
(700,000 hectares) of wheat, sugar cane
and rice crops, raising the prospect of food
shortages in the coming months in the
already-poor nation. Prices of food have
risen sharply since the floods began.
Authorities in Sindh province said more
floods were likely over the next 24 to 48


hours. "The next two days are crucial for
the safety of people," said Sindh's irriga-
tion minister, Jam Saifullah Dharejo.
Anne Patterson, the U.S. ambassador to
Pakistan, said Tuesday that America had
committed at least $87 million in aid and
expected to give more in the coming days.
More U.S. helicopters are expected to join
the 19 already dispatched to help ferry
stranded Pakistanis and deliver- food and
other items, U.S. officials said.
Patterson said it was too soon to fully
understand the scale of the disaster,
including its impact on the Taliban and al-
Qaida-led insurgency on Pakistani soil.
But she downplayed concerns that Islamist
extremists are winning flood victims' sup-
port through their own relief activities.
"To be blunt, I think these stories about
extremist organizations being the only
players out there are greatly exaggerated,"
Patterson told a news conference in
Islamabad.


(ills 61 in recruitment drive Court: Israel
responsible

for Arab

.. girl's death


Family members of Saif Ali, 24, grieve during his funeral in Najaf, south of Baghdad, Iraq, Tuesday. Ali
was killed when a suicide bomber sat for hours Tuesday among hundreds of army recruits before deto-
nating nail-packed explosives strapped to his body, killing and wounding dozens of them and casting new
doubt on the ability of Iraqi forces as U.S. troops head home. AP Photo


applicants remained there until mid-
afternoon.
On the last of a nine-day recruit-
ment drive, Iraqi officials provided
only scant security for the estimated
1,000 men hoping to get hired, hun-
dreds of whom had stayed outside
the headquarters overnight for a first
shot at handing in their job applica-
tions. The recruits were from three
poor Shiite neighborhoods in
Baghdad and the impoverished
Babil and Muthanna provinces in
Iraq's Shiite-dominated south.
The suicide bomber, sat patiently
with them through dawn before
launching his attack, Ali said.
'Ali said he watched the bomber,
whom he described as a young man,
walk up to an Iraqi army officer and
detonate the nail-packed explosives
strapped to his legs about 7:30 a.m.
"Severed hands and legs were
falling over me," Ali said. "I was
soaked with blood from the body
parts and wounded and dead people
falling over and beside me."
The body of the suicide bomber
was found with his legs blown off,


said Iraqi military spokesman Maj.
Gen. Qassim al-Moussawi.
Two police officials put the death
toll at 61 with 125 others wounded.
Officials at four Baghdad hospitals
confirmed the body count. All spoke
on condition of anonymity because
they were not authorized to talk to
the media.
Al-Moussawi said there were 39
killed and 57 wounded. Varying
casualty counts are common in the
confusion after attacks.
Elsewhere in Baghdad, a bomb
attached to a fuel truck detonated in
the mostly Shiite ,neighborhood of
Ur on Tuesday night, killing eight
people, wounding 44 and causing a
nearby gas station to catch fire,
according to police and hospital
officials. Military recruiting stations
and security checkpoints continue to
be easy targets for insurgents who
have killed 454 soldiers, policemen
and government-backed local mili-
tias so far this year, according to an
Associated Press, count.
The repeated bombings show that
despite at least $22 billion in U.S.


funding since 2004 for training and
equipment, security forces are little
better at protecting themselves than
the population.
The looming departure of the U.S.
military has turned Iraqi forces into
even more attractive victims for
insurgents looking to prove their
might by exploiting security gaps.
The White House said the bomb-
ing will not halt either Iraq's transi-
tion to democracy or the U.S. troop
withdrawal.
"There obviously are still people
who want to derail the advances that
the Iraqi people have made toward
democracy," Deputy Press Secretary
Bill Burton said. "But.they are firm-
ly on track."
Al-Moussawi said the Iraqi mili-
tary would shut down all recruiting
centers in urban areas. Although
police protect their own recruits by
having them wait inside fortified
buildings and closing off nearby
roads, al-Moussawi said that was
not always possible for the army
because of the sheer number of job
applicants.

JERUSALEM A
Jerusalem court decided in a
ruling made public Tuesday
that the Israeli. state was
responsible for the death of a
10-year-Old Palestinian girl
killed by gunfire more than
three years ago as she stood
some' distance from a
demonstration.
The case gained wide
attention because the girl's
father, Basam Aramin, was a
Palestinian militant turned
advocate for Israeli-
Palestinian coexistence. He
helped found Combatants for
Peace, a group of former
Israeli and Palestinian fight-
ers who work for a peaceful
resolution of the conflict.
Abir Aramin was critically
wounded in January 2007 as
Israeli border police were
dispersing a demonstration
of rock-throwing youths in
the village of Anata, north of
Jerusalem. The girl was
standing some distance away
and was hit by a rubber-coat-
ed bullet. She died two days
later in a Jerusalem hospital.
Police initially said she
was killed by a stray rock
thrown by a Palestinian.
"There cannot be any dis-
pute over the conclusion that
Abir was hit by a rubber bul-
let fired by border police,
meaning the fire was con-
ducted either due to negli-
gence or violation of. the
rules of engagement," the
court said in its ruling.
Israeli border police are
paramilitary units responsi-
ble for crowd and riot con-
trol.
During the decades of
Palestinian protests against
Israeli occupation, Israeli
forces have frequently used
rubber-coated steel pellets
for crowd control.


Palestinian who

attacked Turkish

Embassy captured


BY AMI BENTOV AND
ARK LAVIE
ASSOCIATED PRESS WRITERS

.TEL AVIV, Israel -
A Palestinian who
broke -into the Turkish
Embassy in Israel trying
to take hostages and
demanding asylum was
turned over to Israeli
authorities late Tuesday,
ending a tense standoff.
Seven hours after he
forced his way into the
embassy, the attacker
was escorted out of the
embassy and bundled
into an Israeli ambu-
lance.
Wearing a light blue
shirt and limping slight-
ly from an apparent
gunshot wound, he
raised his arms briefly
and shouted before
Israeli police and para-
medics subdued him.
An hour earlier, the
Turkish government
said it had the situation
in hand.
"Our embassy guards
neutralized the individ-
ual as he tried to take
the vice consul as
hostage after shouting
around for asylum," the
Turkish statement said,
adding he was armed
with a knife, a gasoline
can and a gun that
turned out to be a toy.
Israeli Foreign
Ministry spokesman
Yigal Palmor identified


the attacker as Nadim
Injaz,'a Palestinian from
the West Bank town of
Ramallah. Israeli police
said Injaz was recently
released from prison
after serving time for an
attack on 'the British
Embassy four years
ago, also to seek asy-
lum.
Channel 2 TV played
a recording of a phone
call it said came from
the attacker.
"I have two
hostages," he said in
Hebrew. "I will blow up
the embassy. ... If they
don't let me leave this
country now I will burn
down the whole build-
ing. I will burn every-
thing. I will bum the
cars, the doors I will
break down the doors., I
will breal* everything."
A lawyer who said he
spoke to Injaz by phone
told Israel Radio that
the hostages, the consul
and his wife, had
escaped.
Injaz said,he admired
Recep Tayyip Erdogan.
"I love him and I
respect him," he said.
The Turkish leader
"should give me politi-
cal asylum against these
murderers the Zionists,
the murdering Jews," he
added, linking the inci-
dent indirectly to recent
tensions between Israel
and Turkey.

Israeli military confronts new foe: the Internet


BY JOSEF FEDERMAN
ASSOCIATED PRESS WRITER
JERUSALEM The security
obsessed Israeli military is con-
fronting a new adversary trying
to control what its own soldiers
p6st to the Internet.
Facebook, along with YouTube
and other popular sites, is turning
into a formidable nuisance for the
army, as young recruits in this
tech-crazy country post embar-
rassing and potentially sensitive
information online, circumventing
tight military controls.
The issue exploded onto the
national agenda this week when a
young ex-soldier posted pictures
of herself in uniform, posing in'
front of handcuffed, blindfolded
Palestinian prisoners on her
Facebook page under the heading
"Army The .Best Time of My
Life."
The controversial posting, along
with a series of other recent gaffes,
highlights the challenges facing
Israel's high-tech military -
known, among other things, for its
shadowy electronic-warfare units
- as it struggles to keep up with
the ever-shifting sands of the
Internet. Last month, a video of
Israeli soldiers dancing to the
drunken party anthem "TiK ToK"


In this undated photo, originally posted on a Facebook page
belonging to Eden Aberjil, and taken from the Israeli blog site
sachim.tumblr.com, an Israeli army soldier poses in front of blind-
folded men identified in the Israeli media as Palestinian prisoners.
The Hebrew in the top right translates as, "Eden Arberjil's photos -
army...the best time of my life." Israeli news media and bloggers
have identified the soldier in the' photos as Aberjil. AP

during a patrol in the West Bank
emerged on YouTube, earning
them a reprimand. Around the
same time, a secret intelligence


unit launched a Facebook group
for its members that divulged
details, of the secret base where
they served. The site was removed


several days later after the army
found out. And, in perhaps the
most serious breach, a military
raid in the West Bank had to be
called off earlier this year after a
soldier posted details about the
upcoming operation on Facebook.
Such incidents illustrate "how
difficult it is for the military to
operate, stick to policy, and keep
people in line in light of the new
communication realities," said
Sheizaf Rafaeli, director of the
Sagy Center for Internet Research
and the Study of the Information
Society at the University of Haifa.
That's in stark contrast to the
traditional media, over which
Israel's military censor has long
maintained tight control.
Both "Israeli and international
news outlets are required to submit
reports with potentially sensitive
material for review, and the cen-
sor's office often returns them with
words or even entire sections
blacked out. Access is severely
limited to military personnel, from
field soldiers to the army's top
echelons, and it can take weeks to
line up an interview with key com-
manders.
Once approved, there are tight
restrictions -quotes often must
be run through, the army
spokesman's office and soldiers


frequently can't be named or pho-
tographed.
The emergence of the latest pic-
tures dominated Israeli news
shows Tuesday, drawing tough
criticism from the army and
receiving heavy coverage in the
Arab media.
Palestinians, along with Israeli
human rights groups, denounced
the photos as a cruel symbol of
Israel's four-decade occupation,
and the Arab satellite channel al-
Jazeera interspersed its coverage
with pictures of Abu Ghraib, the
notorious U.S. prison in Iraq
where American soldiers tortured
inmates.
The former Israeli officer, Eden
Aberjil, struck a defensive tone in
interviews with Israeli media,
insisting she did nothing wrong
arid saying she was surprised she
had offended anyone.
"I have nothing to say sorry
about. I treated them really well, I
didn't abuse them, I didn't curse
them, I didn't humiliate them. I
merely took a picture near them,"
Aberjil told Channel 2 TV.
She said the men were civilians
from the Gaza Strip who had been
caught trying to enter Israel, appar-
ently in search of work, and she
posed for the pictures because she
had never met anyone from Gaza.

130


urvive 'miracle'


plane crash in Colombia


BY VIVIAN SEQUERA
ASSOCIATED PRESS WRITER
BOGOTA, Colombia Survivors say
everything seemed,normal as a jetliner with
131 people on board prepared to land in a
storm on a Caribbean resort island.
Suddenly it plunged to earth, killing one per-
son a death toll so low that passengers
called it a miracle.
"The pilot informed us that we were going
to land in San Andres, we buckled our seat
belts, we settled in and a second later,
boom! A big bang," said 25-year-old Alvaro
Granados, who was flying with his wife and
two children. "When my wife and I stood
and looked behind us we saw that the back
of the plane was missing."
Authorities say it happened so quickly the
pilot didn't report an emergency to the con-
trol tower at Colombia's San Andres Island.
But it may take experts months to figure out
what happened in (he moment when the
Aires airline Boeing 737 jetliner hit the
ground short of the runway on Monday -
and how 130 of the people on board sur-
vived as the aircraft skidded on its belly with
its fuselage fracturing and its landing gear
and at least one engine ripping off.
After the jet ground to a stop, passengers
scrambled from their seats or were helped to
safety. Authorities said firefighters quickly
doused flames that broke out on a wing. The
one fatality was Amar Fernandez de

15 people wounded ii


explosion in Russia's south


BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
ROSTOV-ON-DON,
Russia A vehicle exploded
outside a cafe in southern
Russia Tuesday, injuring at
least 15 people, police said.
Stanislav Belyayev, a
spokesman for the Stavropol
region police, said the explo-
sion occurred just outside the
cafe in downtown Pyatigorsk,
a city in Russia's North
Caucasus. The powerful blast
wounded at least 15 cafe cus-
tomers ,and passers-by, he
said.
Belyayev said the explo-
sion appeared to be a deliber-
ate terror attack, although an
official probe had only just
started. Hours earlier, a sui-
cide bomber killed a police
officer and wounded two oth-


ers in a neighboring Caucasus
province.
Aslan Dzgoyev of the min-
istry's branch in North
Ossetia, said the attacker blew
himself up at a police check-
point on the outskirts of the
provincial capital,
Vladikavkaz. The bomber,
who died in the explosion,
was accompanied by two
other men. One of them was
captured after police had shot
and wounded him, while the
other escaped.
North Ossetia and other
regions in Russia's volatile
North Caucasus have been
plagued by suicide bombings
and other violence stemming
from two separatist wars in
Chechnya and aggravated by
widespread complaints of
police abuses.


Barreto, 68, and doctors said she may have
succumbed to a heart attack rather than
physical injuries from the crash. Officials
said 119 people in all were taken to hospitals
or clinics, most of them for minor injuries.
At least 13 survivors, including four with
serious injuries, were flown to Bogota for
treatment, Colombian air force Col. David
Barrero said Tuesday. Investigators have
been interviewing the crew and will be
examining the flight data and cockpit voice
recorders to piece together the final
moments.
Both were recovered from the wreckage
and it will take three or four months to fully
analyze them, said Col. Donald Tascon,
deputy director of Colombia's civil aeronau-
tics agency.
Authorities are considering whether a vio-
lent wind shift in the thunderstorm could
have played a role in the crash, !as well as
accounts of lightning as the plane was com-
ing in for landing.
Hernando Hernandez, a 49-year-old
accountant on vacation with his wife and 11-
month-old daughter, said he was gazing at
the lights of San Andres as the plane'made
what seemed to be a normal approach.
"But a gust of wind moved the plane a lit-1
tle and ... I imagine the pilot gave the
engines more power and once again put it
into position, and we continued going down
toward the runway," Hernandez told The
Associated Press in a phone interview.
