Marianna High School
and Marianna Middle
School were both burglar-
izedl over the Labor Day
weekend. .
Jackson County Sheriff
Lou Roberts said a per-
son or persons attempted
to enter Marianna High
School sometime. Sunday
night or Monday morn-
ing. A projectile was used


against the front glass
door, but because the
glass is hurricane proof,
the perpetrators) couldn't
break through.
Marianna High School
Assistant Principal Clar-
ence Bellamy said it would
take time for the door to
be replaced, but it's not a
threat t'o student's safety.
He was unsure how much
a new door would cost.

Marianna's clinic has a

The local end-of-year
United Way fundraising
effort kicks off this Thurs-
day as six restaurants give
their customers a chance
to help the cause without
spending any extra money.
All the customers have
to do is come in and "Dine
United," the slogan for
the one-day campaign at
Madison's Warehouse res-
taurant, Subway, Sonny's
Barbecue, Beef 'O' Brady's
Jim's Buffet and Grill, and
The Oaks restaurant.
Each of those restaurants
will donate a portion of
their profits to the United
Way.
Local United Way cam-
paign chairman Al Green
> CLASSIFIEDS...5-7B >


said he hopes Thursday's
Dine United campaign will
build a strong foundation
for the fundraising efforts
to come later this year.
For instance, Green will
host another chili cook-off
in November at Jackson
County Road and Bridge
headquarters, where he
serves as superintendent
of the department.
There will also be a "ball
race" down the Chipola
River this year, prob-
ably in October, Green
speculated.
The local chapter hopes
to raise about $50,000
this year through various
events and through pay-roll
deductions authorized by
workers who are willing to

Guest Opinion



Targeting the


water districts
By The Tampa Tribune

G~ov. Rick Scott's administration says slash-
I ing the state's five water districts' budgets by
S$700 million won't harm the environment.
Don't buy it. To be sure, all state agencies, including
the districts, must do some serious belt-tightening
during these tough times. And the governor is right
to insist the districts focus on their core purpose
water-conservation.
But Scott's reckless and arbitrary cuts will compro-
mise the districts' ability to prevent flooding and pro-
tect water resources. The administration will virtually
halt the land acquisitions that have allowed districts to
keep development from harming key water sources or
creating flooding threats. Moreover, Scott, who rightly
criticizes Washington for its imperial mandates, takes a
fbderal-like approach, micromanaging from Tallahassee
rather than allowing the districts to respond creatively.
to regional needs. Scott chastised the districts for main-
taining large reserves. He applauded the South Florida
Water Management District for using $350 million of its
reserves to continue water quality work in the Ever-
glades and elsewhere, in the face of the funding cuts,
which included a legislatively mandated 30 percent
reduction in ad valorem taxes.
Yet robust reserves are necessary to ensure the
districts can cope with hurricanes and other disasters.
Relying on reserves to fund ongoing wetlands restora-
tion, water storage and other tasks almost surely will
force districts to eliminate environmental work as the

Te mnaed prsert ax utim ed ona the
South Florida Water Management District's bond rat-
ing, which will increase borrowing costs. The governor
says the, district should make do with funds at hand
and not borrow, a short-sighted stance. While borrow-
ing should be done cautiously, it often is smart to issue
bonds and buy property when prices are low. And land -
is bargain now.
Delaying acquisition can sting taxpayers or cause
the public to forever lose a chance to acquire tracts
needed for flood prevention, resource protection and
recreation. The districts'-governing boards should be
able to make that call based on each district's needs
and finances.
Scott also doesn't seem to appreciate the differences
among the districts. For instance, the governor im-
posed a $165,000 salary cap for all five district directors.
This would allow, as Au'dubon's Charles Lee points out,
an inflated salary for the director of Northwe'st Florida
Water Management District, which has 120 employees
in the sparsely populated Panhandle, where water: chal-
lenges are modest.
But the pay may not be sufficient to attract the best
and brightest to the South Florida district, which
stretches from Orlando to the Florida Keys and in-
cludes nearly 8 million residents. It oversees a complex
flood-control system that includes hundreds of miles of
canals. It is overseeing the restoration of the Everglades,
Lake Okeechobee, the Kissimmee River and numerous
other critical environmental projects. The district has
1,600 employees. '
Similarly, the Southwest district, which stretches from
Levy to Charlotte County and includes the Tampa Bay
area', serves nearly 5 million people and deals with se-
vere water shortages, salt water intrusion and conflicts
between agriculture operations and residents. The
district this week hired Blake Guillory, an engineer with
private sector experience, as executive director. Dave
Moore, the previous director who had done an admi-
rable job, resigned in May.
We don't blame the governor for wanting to rein in
government salaries, but to treat all the districts the
same, regardless of size or responsibilities, is something
that would never be done in the private sector, where
superior leaders command higher pay. Indeed, if Scott
wants bold and innovative leadership, he would allow
the governing boards more flexibility with pay but
ensure salaries were linked to results.
The governor has demonstrated little regard for
Florida's natural resources, which underpin its ap-
peal and quality of life. We don't fault him for ordering
budget cuts. But stewardship should be a priority, and
thoughtless, blanket cuts are likely to jeopardize our
water sources and economic prospects.

It's a race between Perry-Romney


Publisher
VALERIA ROBERTS


BY DAVIDM. SHRIBMAN


This pattern has historical roots.
In 1988, Sea. Robert J. Dole of Kan-
sas won Iowa but lost New Hamp-
shire to Vice President George
H.W, Bush. And all this is without
considering how hostile the terrain
of New Hampshire likely will be to
Perry. The state has little religious-
conservative fervor and, more im-
portant, invites independents (who
are unlikely to be Perry supporters)
to vote in its primary.
Th'e rest of the CNN scenario
could happen. Romney as a
Mormon has a fighting chance in
Nevada but not much of one in
South Carolina, unless former Sen.
Rick Santorum of Pennsylvania
and Rep. Michele Bachmann of
Minnesota remain in the race that
long, dividing~the social-conserva-
tive vote and providing a surprising
sunny opening for Romney. If not,
Perry~ could bellome free.


could be the man left standing after
everyone else has run of money
and the public has run out of
patience.
Don't count him out. The Don't-
Underestimate-Him candidate is
said to be Perry, but Romney has
a claim to the title as well; hardly
anyone's passionate about him,
yet he's still around. He wants it
more than Perry, is more disci-
plined and ha's prepared longer
and more deeply. Florida, the first
place where there is no natural
advantage for any candidate, could
be a crticial test. Romney is readier
there in September than Perry will
be in March.
Someone else emerges
The hope that someone else may
join the field dwindles with every
day, though do not forget how
late (March 16) Robert E Kennedy
joined the Democratic contest in
1968 -- and he very well might
have won the nomination had he
not been murdered.
The 2012 GOP nomination re-
mains a glittery prize; it isn't every
day you can run against an incum-
bent whose disapproval rating is
60 percent (Zogby International) at
a time when most likely voters say
it's time for someone new in the
presidency (55 percent, Zogby) and
when consumer confidence has hit
a two-year low. A new entrant could
change everything. Then again,
maybe the new entrant already has
entered. His name is Rick Perry.
Some event mntercedes
Mayor Joseph B. Harrington of
Salem, Mass., was an America-
First candidate in a special con-
gressional election on Boston's
North Shore, a Democrat who had
distanced himself from Franklin
Roosevelt and proclaimed himself
"100 percent opposed to President
Roosevelt's foreign policy." He al-
most certainly would have won the
seat but for one thing. The primary
ivas on Dec. 16, 1941.
Events matter, and the'unpre-
dictable is, by definition, difficult
to imagine. Perry is in a strong
position, but CNN is right. There is
plenty of campaign to go.

Presidential politics rises

and this month begins a
Niagara of debates. Before long the
airwaves of Des Moines, Iowa, and
Manchester, N.H., will be full of ap-
peals to voters and the papers will
be full of poll figures.
One of those polls. stuck out
last week. It was the CNN weekly
survey, and it showed that in less
than three weeks, Gov. Rick Perry
of Texas went from a statistical
dead heat with Gov. Mitt Romney
of Massachusetts to doubling
Romney's support, becoming the
clear front-runner in the Repub-

Say 'No' to 'Yes' movement
I see in the paper that we have
citizens who are supporting the
"Yes" movement in the county
for this liquor sales issue. What.
concerns me is how many of these
individuals are members of our lo-
cal churches in the county?
I wonder; how many of them
sit on church pews each Sunday
morning,
I am also concerned that I do
not see a strong stand taken by
the ministers of our area in the
local media. WTVY gave time for it
Friday night at the 5 p.m. news cast.


However, I have not seen much
news media space and time given
to speak out against this issue.
I have been told by several mndi-
viduals that we cannot "legislate
morals." There was a law written
hundreds of years ago that speaks
against this "Yes" issue. It is the law
that I strive to live by! God's Word,
the Bible, speaks very clearly about
immorality. This we have all the leg-
islative law we need to live by. State
and federal law once stayed within
the legislative moral level of this
law. We have far too many that do
not today! This is due to the moral
attitude of this nation's citizens.


I pray that in the coming weeks
we will see church leaders and
church members take a public
stand against this "Yes"movement
and speak out a "No!"
I close with a question; how many
of those supporting the "Yes" issue
have had friends, loved ones, or
maybe family members, killed or
injured as the result of alcohol con-
sumption? The numbers that are
affected by it are growing every day!
Speak out, citizens of Jackson
County!
Yours in Christ,

Sc:n, who gave speech

said. "So, we already have oil drill-

Scott's openness to drilling puts
him closer to the position of Minne-

been going on for decades in the

and have taken other actions that
indicate just and reasonable cause
to demonstrate that you cannot
properly perform your duties as the
Chief of Police," Martinez said in the
memo.
In an email Tuesday to The Asso-
ciated Press, Exposito said he would
"relish" the chance to comment but
said he could not because of a gag
order imposed by the city manager.
"I am forbidden from speaking
with the media without prior writ-
ten approval," the chief wrote. His
attorney did not respond to a re-
quest for comment.
Exposito has previously contend-
ed he is the victim of a political witch
hunt because of his complaints
to federal officials that Regalado
is interfering in the video gaming
probes, which the mayor has de-
nied. The City Commission must
meet within five days of Exposito's
suspension to determine whether
the chief should be removed per-
manently. Exposito would be give
a chance at the meeting to defend
himself against the charges.
In other emails released Tuesday,
Exposito complained sharply about
restrictions the manager imposed
on his personnel decisions. "Obvi-
ously, this is not thie optimal way
to run any organization," the chief


wrote to Martinez in early August.
On the overtime issue, Exposito
said in another email that the costs
were mainly due to a 54-officer re-
duction compared with the year
before. A proposal to curb overtime,
the chief added, might save money
but that would be "disregarding
its effect on crime or officer safety,
something I see as a priority."
Replacing Exposito for now is a
31-year veteran of the police de-
partment, Maj. Manuel Oroso.
Exposito took over for John Tim-
oney, a nationally recognized po-
lice executive who had previously
served as chief in Philadelphia and
held the No. 2 post in NewYork City.
Regalado, however, was no fan of
Timoney, who resigned shortly after
the mayor's 2009 election.
Exposito has also clashed with
the chief Miami-Dade County pros-
ecutor over a shaky city corruption
investigation. In addition, a video
emerged earlier this year that drew
more criticism.
SShot as a pilot for a proposed "Mi-
ami's Finest SOS" television pro-
gram, the video showed Miaini of-
ficers arresting black suspects and
talking about how they are "hunt-
ers" and "predators" in the fight
against crime. The show was never
,made.

MIAMI -Miami's police chief was
suspended Tuesday and could per-
manently lose his job, an escalation
in a series of disputes between the
chief ahd other senior city officials.
The city manager, Johnny Marti-
nez, relieved Chief Miguel Exposito
of his duties following a morning
meeting- and appointed an interim
chief to lead the 1,100-officer Mi-
ami PFolice Department. Exposito,
who wa's suspended with pay, could
be fired by the City Commission in a
matter of days.
Excposito has been with the de-
partment since 1974 and chief since
November 2009. In recent months,
however, he has been criticized for
a series of fatal police shootings of
African-American suspects and has
become embroiled in a high-profile
spat with Mayor Tomas Regalado
over raids on video gaming parlors.
None of that was mentioned in
an email memo from Martinez to
the chief. Instead, Martinez said Ex-
posito failed to take steps as directed
,to reduce overtime and continued
with plans to strip three police of-
ficials of key responsibilities despite
orders to postpone that.
"I have taken this action because
you have failed to obey my orders

TALIAHA'SSEE Gov.
Rick Scott bolstered his
own influence as well as
that of former Gov. Jeb
Bush. on Florida's school
system Tuesday when he
appointed another Bush
insider to the State Board
of Education.
The Republican gover-
nor named GOP political
consultant Sally Brad-
shaw, a former Bush chief
of staff and campaign
manager, to the panel that
oversees public schools as
well as state and commu-
nity colleges.
Bradshaw, who was
Bush's top aide from 1999
through 2001, joins an-
other former Bush chief of
staff, Kathleen Shanahan,
who now chairs the board.
Bradshaw replaces Mark
Kaplan, also a former Bush
chief of staff.
Bradshaw previously
served on the board in
2003 and 2004 as a Bush
appointee. She also re-
cently served on Scott's
transition team.
Scott now has appointed
three of the seven board
members. Of the four ap-
pointed or reappointed
by Scott's predecessor,
Republican-turned-inde-
pendent Charlie Crist, two
Shanahan and Roberto
"Bobby" Martinez orig-
i~nally were appointed by
Bsh.
Bush praised Scott for
appointing Bradshaw and
recognizing "the criti-
cal role education has in
JIstrengthening Florida's


economic futur-e."
"She has over a decade
of firsthand experience
and knowledge of Florida's
education reforms," Bush
said in.a statement. "Her
presence on the board is
an asset to further improve
the quality of education in
Florida."
The appointment didn't
surprise Mark Pudlow,
spokesman for the state-
wide teachers union. The
Florida Education Asso-
ciation has long been at
odds with Bush's policies.
"It would just be kind of
nice where you have a sit-
uation where they discuss
policy rather than rubber
stamp it," Pudlow said.
Bradshaw, though, said
it's difficult to predict
where she'll be on policy
as she's not yet familiar
with specific issues. But
she said she is pleased
with the way the state has
been increasing academic
standards.
"I think we have to con-
. tinue to focus on educat
ing children in a way that
will make them competi-
tive" in the global job mar-
ket, Bradshaw said.
Bush's policies have in-
cluded an emphasis on
measurement and ac-
countability including a
school grading system
based heavily on student
test scores. He's also ad-
vocated merit pay for
teachers and alterna-
tives to traditional public
schools including charter

The Associated Press

WASHINGTON Working-age
America is the new face of poverty.
Counting adults 18-64 who were
laid off in the recent recession as
well as single twenty-somethings
still looking for jobs, the new work-
ing-age poor represent nearly 3 out
of 5 poor people a switch from the
early 1970s when children made up
the main impoverished group.
While much of the shift in poverty
is due to demographic changes -
Americans are having fewer children
than before the now-weakened
economy and limited government
safety net for workers are heighten-
ing the effect.
Currently, the ranks of the work-
ing-age poor are at the highest level
since the 1960s when the war on
poverty was launched. When new
census figures for 2010 are released
next week, analysts expect a contin-
ued increase in the overall poverty
rate due to persistently high unem-
ployment last year.
If that holds true, it ivill mark 1;he
fourth year in a row of increases in
the U.S. poverty rate, which now
stands at 14.3 percent, or 43.6 mil-
lion people.
"There is a lot of discussion about
what the aging of the baby boom
should mean for spending on Social
Security and Medicare. But there is
not much discussion about how the
wages of virorkers, especially those
with no more than a high school
degree, are not rising," said Sheldon
Danziger, a University of Michigan
public policy professor who special-


izes in poverty.
"The reality is there are going to
be a lot of working poor for the fore-
seeable future," he said, citing high.
unemployment and congressional
resistance to raising the minimum
wage.
The newest poor include Richard
Bowden, 53, of southeast Washing-
ton, who has been on food stamps
off and on the last few years. A main-
tenance worker, Bowden says he was
unable to save much money before
losing his job months ago. He no
longer works due to hip and back
problems and now gets by on about
$1,000 a month in disability and oth-
er aid.
"At my work, we hadn't gotten a
raise in two years, even while the
prices of food and clothing kept
going up, so 1 had little left over,"
Bowden said. "Now, after rent, the
utility bill, transportation and other
costs, my money is pretty much
down to nothing."
"I pray and hope that things get
better, but you just don't know," he
said.
The poverty figures come at a po-
litically sensitive time for President
Barack Obama, after a Labor De-
partment report last Friday showed
zero job growth in August. The White
House now acknowledges that the
unemployment rate, currently at 9.1
percent, will likely average 9 percent
through 2012.
Obama is preparing to outline a
new plan for creating jobs and stim-
ulating the economy in a prime-time
address to Congress on Thursday.
The Republican-controlled House


has been adamant about requiring
spending cuts in return for an in-
crease in the federal debt limit. Sug-
gested cuts have included proposals
to raise the eligibility age for future
Medicare recipients' or to reduce
Other domestic programs in a way
that would disproportionately affect
the poor.
According to the latest census
data, the share of poor who are ages
18-64 now stands at 56.7 percent,
compared to 35.5 percent who are
children and 7.9 percent who are 65
and older. The working-age share
surpasses a previous high of 55.5
percent first reached in 2004.
Lower-skilled adults ages 18 to 34,
in particular, have had the largest
jumps in poverty as employers keep
or hire older workers for the dwin-
dling jobs available.
In 1966, when the Census Bureau
first began tracking the age distribu-
tion of the poor, children made up
the biggest share of those in poverty,
at 43.5 percent. Working-age adults
comprised a 38.6 percent share, and
Americans 65 and older represented
nearly 18 percent.
Demographers expect next week's
poverty report to show, among other
things:
,>A rise in working families who
are low income, to nearly 1 in 3. "Low
income" is defined as those making
less than 200 percent of the poverty
threshold, or about $43,000 for a
family of four.
a Larger numbers of people who
are uninsured, due to slightly higher
rates of unemployment on average
in 2010.


percent say that if they
had to choose between
preserving their rights
and freedoms and pro-
tecting people from ter-
rorists, they'd come down
on the side of civil liber-
ties. The poll found that
about half of those sur-
veyed felt that they have
indeed lost some of their
own personal freedoms
to fight terrorism. Was it
worth it? Close to half of
those who thought they'd
lost freedoms doubted it
was necessary.

ATLANTA Heavy rain
from the former Tropical
Storm Lee rolled north-
east into Appalachian
states Tuesday, spreading
the threat of flooding as
far as New England af-
ter drenching the South,
spawning tornadoes,
sweeping several people
away and knocking out
power to thousands.
At least four people
died because of the rough
winds and drenching
rains.
Lee also churned up
heavy surf that sent tar
balls washing onto Al-
abama's prime tourist
beaches. The globs of oil
found so far were very
small, Orange Beach May-
or Tony Kennon said, and
their origin was unclear.
In Gulf Shores, black
and brown chunks of tar
ranging from the size of
marbles to nearly the size
of baseballs were on the
beach. Brandon Franklin,
the city's coastal claims
manager, said samples
would be sent to Auburn
University for chemical
testing to determine if the
tar is from last year's BP oil
spill.
Oil from the spill had
soiled Gulf Coast beaches
during the summer tourist
season a year ago, though
officials said the tar balls
found so fair didn't com-
pare with the thick oil
found on beaches then.
BP isn't taking respon-
sibility for the tar balls
just yet. It has sent survey
teams to conduct post-
storm. assessments along .
coastal beaches to deter-
mine ~what may have de-
veloped on the beaches
and barrier islands as a
result of Lee. The oil giant
is prepared to mobilize re-
sponse crews to affected
areas if necessary, spokes-
man Tom Mueller said.
Connie Harris of Ala-`
baster, Ala., had spent the
Labor Day weekend in
nearby Gulf Shores and
came back from a walk on
the beach to find she had
to scrub her feet with a
wash cloth and soap.
"When we walked on
the beach, wd had tar on
our feet," she said.
Meanwhile, more rain
was expected in parts of
Tennessee that already
saw precipitation records
fall on Labor Day. Tor-
nado watches covered
much of North and South
Carolina and flooding
was forecast along the
upper Potomac River ~and


some of its tributaries in
West Virginia and western
Maryland.
Flood watches and
warnings were in effect
from northeast Alabama
and Tennessee through
West Virginia to upstate
New York, already soaked
by Irene. Rainfall amounts
of 4 to 8 inches, with iso-
lated spots up to 10 inch-
es, were possible as heavy
rain spread into the cen-
tral Appalachians, the Na-
tional Weather Service's
Hydrometeorological Pre-
diction Center said.
In Georgia, officials at
Fort Stewart said a light-
ning strike sent about
22 soldiers to the hospi-
tal Monday, with at least
three kept overnight.
Fort Stewart spokesman
Pat Young said the soldiers
were on the post's Dono-
van Field in a large tent
that may have been, di-
rectly hit by lightning. He
said there were no initial
reports of burns and 18 of
the soldiers were released
back to active duty Mon-
day evening.
Rain kept fallingTuesday
in Chattanooga, Tenn.,
which went from its dri-
est-ever month in August
with barely a drop to a
record one-day deluge of
8.16 inches by. 5 p.m.
Monday. By dawn Tues-
.day, 10 inches of rain had
fallen in the state's fourth-
largest city.
Numerous roads were
flooded, and the soggy
ground meant even mod-


est winds were toppling
trees. In Chattanooga, a
tree fell onto a woman
while she was moving her
car, killing her, said police
Sgt. JerriWeary.
The storm system
churned up treacherous
waters across the South,
In Mississippi, a man
drowned while trying to
cross a swollen creek,
while authorities called
off the search for missing
swimmer presumed dead
off Alabama. Another man
died after trying to cross a
swollen creek near a dam
in suburban Atlanta.
Rain in Alabama flooded
numerous Birmingham
roads. The storm also
caused a roof to collapse
at Pinson Valley High
School outside Birming-
ham, according to The
Birmingham News. No in-
juries were reported.
As many as 200,000 lost
power across Alabama as
th~e storm moved through,
with most of the outages
in the Birmingham area,
Alabama Power` spokes-
woman Keisa Sharpe said.
By early Tuesday, the
number of outages was
down to 187,000, she
said. Power outages were
also reported in Geor-
gia, Tennessee and North
Carolina.
Chainsaws and blue
tarps were coming out in
Georgia neighborhoods

AUSTIN, Texas More than 1,001
homes have been destroyed in at least 5
wildfires across rain-starved Texas, mos
of them in one devastating blaze close te
Austin that is still raging out of control.
officials said Tuesday.
Gov. Rick Perry, who cut short a presi
dential campaign trip to South Carolin;
on Monday to return to help oversee fire
fighting efforts in Texas, toured a black
ened area near Bastrop, about 25 mile
from Austin, where a fast-moving blazl
. destroyed nearly 600 homes on Monday.
At a news conference afterward, he
marveled at the destruction and point
ed out that more than 100,000 acres ii
the drought-stricken state had burned
over the past week, and that more: thaI
3.5 million acres an area roughly the
size of Connecticut had burned since
December. ..
"Pretty powerful visuals of individual;
who lost everything," Perry said. "The
magnitude of these losses are pretty
stunning."
Some residents said they were surprised
by how quickly the blaze engulfed thei
neighborhoods.
"We were watching TV and my brother
in-law said to come and see this," Davt
Wilhelm, 38, who lives just east of BastroI
said. "All I saw was a fireball and somt
smoke. All of a sudden: Boom! We looked
up and left."
Wilhelm returned Tuesday to find hi!
neighbor's house and three vehicles gone

State emergency management chief Nim

lion people in direct mail,
periodicals, catalogs, fi-
nanbial services and other
businesses.
Sen. Tom Carper, D-Del.,
noted several proposals
have been put forward to
improve postal operations
and said that Congress
needs to work on areas
where agreement can be
found.
Both Carper and Collins
have introduced bils to
reform postal operations,
and measures have also
been introduced in the
House.
Donahoe and his pre-
decessor John Potter have
warned for months that
without changes in the law
governing postal opera-
tions the Postal Service will
be unable to make advance
payments to cover future
retiree medical benefits.
Staggered by the eco-
nomic downturn and the
massive shift from first-
class mail to email, the
post office lost more than
$8 billion last year and is
facing losses at least that
large this year, despite
having cut 110,000 jobs
over the last four years and
making other changes, in-
cluding closing smaller, lo-
cal post offices.
The Postal Service, which
does not receive tax mon-
ey for its operations, is not
seeking federal funds.


Instead, postal officials
want changes in the way
they operate, including re-
lief from the requirement
that it prefund medical
costs.
No other federal agen-
cy has to prefund retiree
health benefits, but be-
cause of the way the feder-
al budget is organized the
money counts as income
to the governent, so
eliiating it would make
the federal deficit appear
larger.
Also, the post office


wants to reduce mail de-
livery to five days-a-week;
close 3,700 offices; further
cut workforce by up to
220,000; to withdraw from
fedeni~l retire systems and
set up its own and it seeks
the return of $6.9 billion
overpaid into retirement
funds.
Contracts with its em-
ployee unions currently
strictly limit layoffs and
closing post offices riles
local communities who
complain to their mem-
bers of Congress.


WASHINGTON Post-
master General Patrick
Donishoe warned that the
Postal Service is on "the
brink of default" as he
battles to keep his agency
solvent.
Without legislation by
Sept. 30, the agency "will
default on a mandated
$5.5 billion payment to
the Treasury," Donahoe
told the Senate Homeland
Security and Governmen-
tal Affairs Committee on
Tuesday.
And with no congres-
sional action, a year from
now, next August or Sep-
tember, the post office
could run out of money to
pay salaries and contrac-
tors, hampering its ability
to operate, Donahoe said.
"We do not want taxpay-
er money," Donahoe said,
"We have got to get our fi-
nances in order."
Committee Chairman
Joe Lieberman, I-Conn.,
said: "We must act quickly.
The U.S. Postal Service is
not an 18th century relic,
it is a 21st century national
asset, but times are chang-
ing rapidly now and so too
must the post office.

Pirates trying

to develop

killer instinct




After 33-14 road victories, there
usually isn't a lot for a coach to
find fau~lt wvith.
However, Sneads coach Don
Dowling said Tuesday that de-
spite his club's lopsided win over
the Franklin County Seahawks
on Friday night in Eastpoint, his
team still has lessons it needs
to learn before reaching its
potential.
The principal lesson from Fri-
day: finish the job.
Sneads jumped out to a 14-0
lead in the first quarter of the
game, but things slowed down
for the Pirates in the second
period, and the Seahawks were
able to score and cut the margin
to 14-8 at halftime.
After a spirited halftime dis-
cussion in the Sneads locker
room, the Pirates came out in the
second half with renewed en-
ergy and scored two more quick
touchdowns in the third to pull
away.
However, Dowling said there
wasn't the same fire from his
team in the fourth quarter, and
that the Pirates will have to learn
to sustain their focus and inten-
sity for four quarters if they're to
have success against the better
teams on the schedule.

Cottondale coach
Cassie Ridley said that despite the loss, she still
projects good things for her team the rest of the
season,
"We arie a very young varsity team," she said.
"They have so much to improve on, but it's noth-
ing that they cannot achieve. This group of girls
has so much potential that they have not realized
yet.
"But once they come together and begin td play
as a team, they will see much success."
The Lady Hornets were scheduled to take on

The Sneads Pirates junior var-
sity team will look to move to 2-
0 on Thursday night when they
travel to Graceville to take on the
JV Tigers in their second game of
the young season. .
Sneads took a 14-10 win over
the Wewahitchka Gators in its
opener on Thursday at home,
while the Tigers were victorious
in a preseason jamboree against
Freeport and South Walton.
The Pirates won last year's con-
test with the Tigers, overcoming
an early 14-0 deficit with three
unanswered scores of their own
to take the victory.
SHS JV coach Shawn Graham
said that while he hasn't seen this
Graceville JV team in person yet,
he thinks Thursday's game will
be just as tough as last years.
"We don't have any film on
them, but we kind of know each
Other well. They have an idea of
what we will do, and we have an


idea of what they will do," the
coach said. "We're gearing up for
it to be a pretty close ballgame.
I'm telling my kids it will be a X
dogfight, and that's what I think 'il3
it will be."
If the preseason has been any ~; i~
indication, the Tigers should be
just as formidable as Graham.
believes them to be.
Graceville played the first quar- i .
ter of a varsity jamboree against
Holmes County on Aug. 26 and
outscored the Blue Devils junior
varsity 15-0 before turning things t
over to the varsity. v.
Last week, the Tigers traveled
to Bristol for a jamboree against
Liberty County and South Wal-
ton, ~winning both halves by a
combined score of 22-12.
Graceville's freshman duo of -
quarterback Jared Padgett and.
running back Jarrett Brogdon
combined for a whopping 281
rushing yards and three touch-
downs on the night.

The Marianna Bulldogs will
try to make it two wins in a row
to start the season on Thursday
night, as they make their home
debut against Florida High at 6
p~m.
The Bulldogs defeated Lib-
erty County 32-0 on Thursday
in Bristol in the season opener,
breaking open a close game with
24 points in the second half.
Marianna led 8-0 after some-
what sluggish first half, but fresh-
man fullback Teon Long broke
off a 75-yard touchdown run on
the first play of the second half to
spark a Bulldogs scoring burst.
The 'Dawgs added a pair of de-

and return by Jamel Johnson and
an interception return by Jesse
Dougles.
Dougles also scored an offen-
sive touchdown.

was good."
The Bulldogs will look to be
even better on Thursday against
Florida High, a team they beat
30-6 during last year's undefeat-
ed campaign.
"I don't know much about
them (this year), except that they
have a lot of kids and they always
bring great effort," Lawson said.
The coach claimed an extra
emphasis this week on starting
fast instead of relying on a big
second-half effort to win the
game.
"We need to get started in the
first quarter. I don't want to have
to wait until the second quarter
or the second half to get things
going," Lawson said. "We want to
get it going from the start. Some-
times if you wait until the second
quarter, it can be too late for us.
We were lucky last week that the
defense played well from the
start." L

future games,
"We don't know how to

HAMPTON, Ga. With
his car sliding all over the
track, Jeff Gordon held off
teammate Jimmie John-
son over a thrilling last
10 laps Tuesday to win
the rain-delayed NAS-
CAR race at Atlanta Motor
Speedway.
Gordon won for the
third time this season and
85th time in his career,
breaking a tie with Bobby
Allison and Darrell Wal-
trip for third on the career
list.
'Richard Petty (200) and
David Pearson (105) are
the only drivers in Cup
history with more victo-
ries than Gordon.
"I totally forgot about
that," said Gordon, who
received a special plaque
from NASCAR during the
victory ceremony in front
of the main grandstand.
"Eighty-five, wow! That is
un-un-believable. With
the kind of day we had,
the kind of year we're hav-
ing, I feel rejuvenated."
He sure earned this win,
fending off the defend-
ing five-time champion.
Johnson put his Chevrolet
in front of Gordon's No. 24
car a couple of times but
couldn't hold on through
the corners. At the end,
with both drivers racing as
hard as they could on fad-
ing tires, their cars came
close to getting sideways
several times.

It's often said that a foot-
ball team's biggest im-
provement comes from
its first game to its second
game, and Graham said
that the opener against
Wewa could have the same
effect for his club.
"The biggest positive for
me is the experience that
they got," the coach said.
"When you're so young,
that experience is a big fac-
tor. We left a lot of points
on the field against Wewa,
but the experience of that
game will contribute the
most to our team through-
out the year."

"But we're going to cor-

or trying to cut it up too

run for the lead on the
final lap, but had to back
off to keep from putting
his car in the wall. Gor-
don pulled away to~win
by 0.598 seconds.
The AdvoCare 500 was
only the second Cup race
since 1978 to be run on
a~ Tuesday. It was origi-
nally scheduled for Sun-
day night, but rain from
the remnants of Tropical
Storm Lee forced a two-
day postponement.
Gordon, a four-time
champion, had already
locked up a spot in the
Chase for the champi-
onship, but this perfor-
mance stamped him as a
prime contender to end
Johnson's unprecedented
title run.
Then again, Johnson
looks` pretty strong, too.
He moved past Kyle Busrh
to take the top spot in the


season standings, leav-
ing little doubt that hie's
still the one everyone's
chasing.
Tony Stewart w~as feel-
ing a lot better about his
chances after making up
more than 8 seconds on
the leaders in the final
laps to finish third. He so-
lidified his hold on 10th
place the final spot
in the Chase that will be
determined on points
- heading to next week-
end's race at MRichmond,
the last one before the
playoff field is set.
Six drivers had already
clinchedd a spot in the 12-
drivel; playoff, and three
more joined them Tues-
day. Kurt Busch and Ryan
Newman are locked in on
points, and Brad Kesel-
owski wrapped up at least
a wild card with his sixth-
place finish.

Lady Hornets JV
wins big

The Cottondale Lady
Hornets junior varsity
team did pick up a wYin in
its season opener against
Vernon, winning in twYo
sets, 25-23 and 25-9.


Sneaks
From PagelB
"We played really well in
the first quarter, but then
we started having some
penalties and boneheaded
mistakes (in the second
quarter)," the coach said.
"We got behind the sticks,
and we don't have many
plays for third and 15 in
Our playbook. We had a
touchdown called back on
an illegal procedure, and
that stuff makes coaches
want to pull their hair out.
"Butwe slipped the switch
at the start of the second
half and started playing
like we were supposed to.
But we didn't play a com-
plete game. We played in
the first and third quarters,
but we're still hunting that


Gra am
From Page lB
"They've played some
good ballgames," Graham
said of the Tigers. "From
everything I've heard, they
were pretty good, and they
have a pretty good quar-
terback. It seems like we're
pretty evenly matched on
paper."
In reviewing his own
team's previous game,
Graham said that the Pi-
rates showed their inex-
perience often in the win
over Wiewa, but that most
of the problems were easy
fixes.
"There were definitely a

JaguafS r910aSe Garranl,
jilan 10 Start McCCOW
JACKSONVLLE The Jacksonville Jaguars have
released veteran quarterback David Garrard, a stun-
ning move that will save the franchise $9 million this
SeaSOn.
Whether it saves coach Jack Del Rio's job remains to
be seen. Team owner Wayne Weaver has said Jackson-
Ville needs to make the playoffs for Del Rio to stick
around for a 10th season. Del Rio made it clear late last
SeaSOn that he had grown tired of Garrard's inconsis-
tent ways.
Del Rio's quarterback swap is similar to what he did
in 2007, when he released Byron Leftwich in favor of
Garrard after the preseason. This time, though, Del Rio
has been steadfast that Garrard was the starter.
Garrard missed the preseason opener because of a
Sore back, but started the final three games. He com-
pleted 50 percent of his passes for 216 yards, with no
touchdowns and an interception.
Luke McCown is expected to start the opener against
the Tennessee Titans.


C0lliMS says he's meady
to take over Colts offense

INDIANAPOLIS Kerry Collins came back to the
NFL to wina Super Bowl.
NOw, he might have a bigger hand in the Colts'
chances than he ever imagined.
With four-time MVP Peyton Manning listed as
doubtful for this week's opener at Houston, Collins is
in line to be Indianapolis' first starting quarterback
not named Manning since December 1997 when Jim
Harbaugh called the signals.
The question, of course, is how effective will Collins
and the Colts be? Collins has had less than two weeks
to learn the nuances of Indy's offense since coming
Out of retirement, but the 16-year veteran insists the
Cram SeSsions have helped him become familiar with
it enough to make a difference right away.

PRL'VIOUS SOLUTION: "There's something about the sound of a train that's
very romantic and nostalgic and hopeful." Paul Simon
(c) 2011 by NEA, Inc. 9-7


Dear Annie: I have been married for 19
years, and my husband is a flirt. After
complaining repeatedly that he was be-
ing disrespectful to me, he stopped.
Now I find him staring at other women
until they pay attention. It's almost as if
he is trying to make a connection. He's
an attractive man, and when he acts like
that, some womeh believe he is interest-
ed in them, and they behave seductively
toward him. I find this humiliating. I
have tried to talk to him about it. At first,
he told me I was jealous and insecure.
Now he simply denies that he does it.
I get the noticing part, because I notice
attractive men, but I don't flirt or try
to make a connection with them. I am
beginning to resent my husband. My
husband will not go to counseling. Is this
really normal male behavior?
SECOND BEST

Dear Second: It is normal to look. It is
not normal to respond in so exagger-
ated a manner that your spouse feels
humiliated. More importantly, when you
ask him to stop, he should make every
effort to do so. Otherwise, he is being


inconsiderate and disrespectful. Tell your
husband you are going to see a counselor
on your own so you can best determine
how to deal with his behavior because it
is seriously damaging your marriage. We~
hope that gets his attention.

Dear Annie: In a few months, I will be
having a milestone birthday. I'd like to
ignore it, but my friends keep talking
about what we should do to celebrate. I
sincerely do not want to do anything at
all. My friends think they are pleasing
me, but they are making me miserable.
The last time they did this, I went along
with it, but I was quite resentful that they
didn't take me at my word. How can I po-
litely convince them to not do anything?
NO CELEBRATIONS

Dear No Celebrations: Not everyone
enjoys birthday celebrations. Tell your
friends that the best gift they could give
you is to make a donation in your name
to your favorite charity. Unfortunately,
that doesn't guarantee they won't try to
surprise you anyway, so we suggest you
make.other plans and be unavailable.

SE0KE ARE (

Bridge
This week we are looking at deals in which it is
important to note the specific spot-cards in one
suit. What should South do in three no-trump
after West leads the heart king Would you have
bid with West's hand over one no-trump?
To take the bidding question first, you should
bid with that hand, especially if you have a wayW
to show a two-suiter. If you use, for example' 4
Cappelletti, you would overcall two hearts,
showing a heart-minor two-suiter. Note that 9
four hearts is only down one, which is an excel- +
lent save against three no-trump. And even if 4
the clubs were 4-2 and four hearts went down
two, it would still be worthwhile. Of course, it is
easier said than done for East to carry the bid-
ding to the four-level.
South starts with nine apparent tricks: three
spades, one heart and five diamonds. However,
getting those five diamonri winners requires
some care. Declarer must notice that the suit
might block. When he cashes the diamond ace,
he must play the seven, eight or nine from the
board. And he must do that two more times,
l8RVing himself with the doubleton four-two 1
and dummy with the singleton three. Then his
four squashes the three and permits him to
cash the two as his fifth trick in the suit.

eluded Mansour Dao, Gadhafi's
security chief and a key mem-
ber of his inner circle, as well as
around 12 other Gadhafi regime
officials.
The official, Harouna Ide, told
The Associated Press that oth-
er Libyan convoys had passed
through Agadez, a town about
halfway between Niger's border
with Libya and its capital in the
far southwest.
The convoys included heav-
ily armed contingents of Tu-
areg tribal fighters from Niger,
who have been long enlisted by
Gadhafi's regime, Niger officials
said.
U.S. State Department spokes-
woman Victoria Nuland said the
U.S. has urged Niger to detain
any individuals who may be
subject to prosecution in Libya;
confiscate the weapons; and im-
pound any state property such
as money or jewels that were il.
legally taken out of the country.
Nuland said some senior
members of the Gadhafi regime
were in the fleeing group, but
not Gadhafi or members of his
family.
The West African nation of
Burkino: Faso, which neighbors
Niger, offered Gadhafi asylum
last month, raising speculation
the convoys were part of plan
to arrange passage there for the
ousted leader.
But on Tuesday, Burkina Faso
distanced itself from Gadhafi,
indicating that if he came there
he would be arrested.
A significant move to escape
by the top echelons of Gadhafi's
military and security services
could bring an important shift in
Libya.
The Gadhafi opponents who
toppled his regime by sweeping


The Associated Press

TARHOUNA, Libya Convoys
of Moammar Gadhafi loyalists,
including his security chief, fled
across the Sahara Desert into
neighboring Niger on Tuesday in
a move that Libya's former reb-
els hoped could undermine the
ousted leader's support in his
last strongholds in the country
and help lead to their surrender.
Still, efforts to negotiate the
peaceful handover of one of the
most crucial of those strong-
holds, the city of Bani Walid,
proved difficult.
Tribal elders from. Bani Walid
who met Tuesday with former
rebels were met by angry resi-
dents of the city, including Gad-
hafi supporters, who fired in the
air to intimidate them, sending
them fleeing, mediators said.
The round of talks illustrated
how many in Bani Walid remain
deeply mistrustful of the forces
that have seized power in the
country and reluctant to accept
their rule, even beyond a simple
loyalty to the ousted leader.
The scope of the flight to Niger
was not immediately clear. Some
former rebels depicted it as a
major exodus of Gadhafi's most
hardcore backers. But informa-
tion on the number and iden-
tity of those fleeing was scarce as
they made their way across the
vast swath of desert over 1,000
miles between any populated
areas on the two sides of the Lib-
ya-Niger border.
Gadhafi himself is not in the
convoys, the U.S. State Depart-
ment said.
As the first group of a dozen ve-
hicles pulled into Niger's capital
Niamey on Tuesday, a customs
official confirnied that it in-

A building is set in fire inside ousted Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi compound in Bab Al-Aziziya, Tripoli, Libya,
Tuesday, Sept.6, 2011. The reason for the blaze is unclear. Negotiations over the surrender of one of Moammar
Gadhafi's remaimng strongholds have collapsed, and Libyan rebels are waiting for orders to launch their final
attack on the besieged town of Bani Walid, a spokesman said.


into Tripoli just over two weeks
ago have been struggling to up-
root the last bastions of his sup-
port, particularly in Bani Walid,
Sirte and the southern city of
Sabha.
They say residents in those cit-
ies have in part been prevented
from surrendering to the new
post-Gadhafi rule in part be-
cause of former regime figures in
their midst.
But residents of the holdout
cities have a complex mix of
motives.
Bani Walid is the homeland of
Libya's largest tribe, the Warfala.
In 1993, some Warfala attempted
a coup against Gadhafi but were
'brutally crushed. The master-
minds were executed, their fam-
ilies' homes demolished, their
clans shunned while Gadhafi


brought other parts ofWarfala to
dominance, giving them power-
ful government jobs and lucra-
tive posts.
That history gives many in the
tribe a strong pride in an oddly
contradictory legacy, as both
early opponents to the regime
and, as they see it, an entitled
part of Libya's leadership.
The dustycity of 100,000, strung
along the low ridges overlooking
a dried up desert river valley ir-
rigated with farms, lies on roads
connecting! Site and Sabha. As
the Warfala in Bani Walid go, so
are their tribal brethreni in those
two cities likely to turn. .
Mohammed bin Masoud, a
resident who was asked by the
former rebels to help arrange
talks with city leaders, dismissed
the idea that pro-Gadhafi senti-


ment was strong. Instead, many
just don't like the rebels, seeing
them as upstarts who opened
the door to NATO intervention.
"This revolution began with
Libyans asking for a better
chance at life, then it took a mili-
tary turn and NATO was brought
in," he said. "I know kids who are
willing to fight the rebels inside
Bani Walid because they don't
want to be forced into accepting
them."
Former rebel forces have been
on the outskirts of Bani Walid
for days, effectively sealing it off.
But they have been reluctant to
try to storm it, saying they don't
want to fuel a cycle of violence
and would rather see a peace-
ful resolution though some
in their ranks are threatening to
attack.

Abbas confirmed this
week that he has held se-

any breakthrough.

condemned the torching of
a mosque in the West Bank
earlier in the week, that
came a few hours after the
Israeli military dismantled
structures in an unauthor-

The name of the outpost,
Migron, was spray painted
on the mosque, suggesting
the act was settler retalia-
Stion for the demolitions.

RAMALIAH, West- Bank
The Palestinians on
Tuesday said they would
not give in to American
pressure to drop their
bid -for statehood at the
United Nations, taking a
tough position ahead of a
meeting with a senior U.S.
delegation,
1Two senior White House
envoys, David Hale and
Dennis Ross, arrived in the
region on Tuesday for talks
with Israel and Palestinian
officials. The U.S. has been
trying to persuade the Pal-
estinians to drop their plan
to ask the U.N. this month
to approve their indepen-
dence and instead resume
peace talks with Israel.
Yasser Abed Rabbo, a
top adviser to Palestinian
President Mahmoud Ab-
bas, -said there was little
the Americans could do to
change the Palestinians'
plans.
"We are going to the
United Nations, regardless
of objections or pressure,"
he said. Abbas is expect-

The comments signaled
more frustration for Presi-
dent Barack Obama, who
has made little progress in
nurturing peace talks de-
spite pledges to make Mid-
east diplomacy a priority.
The Palestinians say they
are turning to the U.N. af-
ter years of sporadic, and

by the Palestinians in
the 1967 Mideast war. Both
Israel and the U.S. oppose
the U.N. initiative, say-
ing peace can be reached
only through negotiations.
Israel has called for a re-
sumption of talks without
preconditions.
The American team
was meeting with Israeli
Defense Minister Ehud

Benjamin Netanyahu on
Tuesday.
Barak's office said his
