County tentatively approves



voting machine lease


LIAoi mi IrjEF FLl,)iDAlr
Scott Gosnell sets up an iVontronic unit at the Supervisor of
Elections Office Tuesday.


BY DEBORAH BUCKHALTER
dbuckhalter@jcfloridan.com-

Jackson County Commission-
ers may lease rather than purchase
some new voting machines required
by county Supervisor of Elections
Sylvia Stephens.
She told the board members on
Tuesday they could exercise ei-
ther option or go for a combina-
tion of lease and purchase.* Ste-
phens' request involved two types of


machines.
She needs additional "EViDs," or
Electronic Precinct Registers, so
each polling location will have one
on election day. Currently, she has
eight of those the county purchased,
six of them stationed at the county's
early voting locations last year, and
two more which were added this
budget year. She needs 20 more, she
estimates; to spread across all of the
14 polling places. She needs mul-
tiple units at some locations to avoid


long lines, she said. They would cost
$2,995 each to purchase, and the
county would need to spend an ad-
ditional $121 per machine to license
the units. The total purchase and
license cost would come to almost
$62,500.
To lease them on a per-election
basis instead, Stephens estimated,
the county would need to rent about
eight, in addition to the eight the

Grower teaming with Marianna


FFA to find niche in the market


BY DEBORAH BUCKHALTER
dbuckhalter@lclloridar, comr

A Jackson County chestnut pro-
ducer ,and the Marianna High
School FFA are teaming up in an
experiment that could make those
students American pioneers in an
emerging beef market niche. And by
the Fed Cattle Show next February,
local consumers could be dining on
the results of their work.
David English and his L&E Farms
partners have 27 acres of chestnut
trees on his 60-acre spread near
Campbellton. He planted them from
seed, and sells the nuts they produce
to large-scale buyers.
But, as with any crop, not all meet
the quality standard-for the market.
Until now, he's been throwing those
away or letting them go to pig farm-
ers for feed. But then he read about
a new program in South Wales, in
which livestockmen add chestnuts
to the diets of their cattle in the
last few months of fattening for the.
market.
Something about the chestnut
gives the animals a particularly rich
aroma, texture andflavor.
English contacted Brian Solger, fac-
ulty advisor to the FFA at Marianna
High. He asked if the FFA wanted to
take the extra chestnuts, for free, and

Farms in Campbellton.


try to add them to their cattle feed.
As Solger continued research into
the possibilities, he becameenthused
about the idea English proposed. As
a result, the local FFA chapter has
already picked up about 500 pounds
of chestnuts that English bagged up'
for them, and they're due to pick up
another 200 pounds soon. The trees
have yielded a total of about 10,000
pounds of chestnuts this year; but
most of the non-market extras are


now going to the FFA.
Few in the United States have tried
the chestnut-infused diet it so far,
English said, but the world market
is getting very interested. The going
price for chestnut-fed cattle is about
$23 a pound, according to his re-
search and Solger's.
The task for FFA members is to
experiment and research until they

Jacksonh County Road
and Bridge crews will soon
have two side-by-side pits
they can dig into for the
dirt they need to com-
plete road projects in the
county.
The two pit sites are lo-
cated on a 137-acre tract
off Pikes Pond Road below
Alford. Purchased at anes-
Stimated cost of $230,000,
the land should yield an
estimated 2 million cubic
yards of dirt over its use-'
ful lifetime, according to
Road and Bridge Superin-
tendent Al Green. He said
the pits should last 40 to
50 years.
On Tuesday, Jackson

Marianna Lions


join the fightto


conquer blindness


Special to the Floridan

The World Health Or-
ganization has estimated
that the number of blind
people in the world could
double in the next 25
years. To combat the lead-
ing causes of blindness
and assist in preservingvi-
sion, the Marianna Lions
are participating in Lions
World Sight Day on Oct.
13, to heighten awareness
and education about sight
preservation and prevent-
able blindness.
"It is estimated that 40
million people around
the world are blind," said
Fauline Mathis, president
of Marianna Lions Club.
"On Lions World Sight
Day, the Marianna Lions
are working in unison
with Lions clubs around
the world to educate mil-
lions of people on the
importance of proper eye
health care."
In the United States, ap-
proximately 750,000 peo-
ple aie blind and an ad-
ditional 50,000 more will
become blind each year,
according to the National
Federation of the Blind.
Like most developed
countries, glaucoma and
I ^.:


diabetes are the leading
causes of blindness in the
United States.
On a worldwide scale,
an estimated:75 percent
of all blindness is found
in Africa and Asia, ac-
cording to the World
Health Organization. In
Africa, there are an esti-
mated 500,000 new cases
of cataracts each year, of
which only 1 in 10.is op-
erated upon. In India, 80
percent of the blind suffer
from cataracts, with more
than 3.8 million new cases
reported.
The Marianna lions

Special to the Floridan

Imagine the aroma of a
succulent pork roast in the
oven, barbecued ribs fresh
off the grill, and sizzling
chops in a skillet. All these
cuts of fresh hog and more
can be yours when you buy
a hand-raised project hog
from a local 4-H or FFA
member at the Panhandle
Youth Expo Swine Sale on
Saturday, Oct. 15.
It all begins Thursday,
Oct. 13, at the Jackson
County Ag Center, as ex-
hibitors test their show-
manship skills at 1 p.m.
The hogs will square offim-
mediately afterwards dur-
ing the Swine Show, each
vying for the title of Grand
Champion. FFA and 4-H
members are also vying for
recognition as Champion
Exhibitor, which is deter-
mined by Showmanship
placing, quiz score, show


placing, etc. The Swine
Sale completes a several-
month project and en-
ables exhibitors to regain
some, if not all, of their
investment.
Anyone interested in
purchasing a hog should
register on Saturday, at 6
p.m. and receive a Buyer
Number. The auction be-
gins at 6:30 p.m. in the
Sale Arena at the Jackson
County Ag Center, located
on Highway 90, two miles.

standing of expenses and
income associated with
an agricultural venture.
Friends, neighbors and
family members are invit-
ed to support exhibitors by
being a project sponsor or
an add-on sponsor.
Several people have
opted to be "first buyer,"
then re-sell the hog at a
lower price to a second
buyer, aka "resale buyer."
The resale buyer pays his
or her commercial price,
while the first buyer pays
the difference between the
original auction i-ice and
commercial sale price. The
benefits are manifold: the
exhibitor earns full auction
price, the resale buyer only
pays V2- of the' auction
price, and the first buyer
donates the balance.
Some folks may want
to split the cost of a hog,
which is great as long as
only one person does the


bidding and arranges for
the processing by letting
the meat packer know to
wrap meat for two fami-
lies. Meat packers will be
present and will collect the
buyer information, and
they will transport to their
facilities for slaughter and
packing. It is important
that the packer know the
buyer's preferences for cut-
ting and wrapping, as well
as if a hog is being shared
between two families.
Contact the Jackson
County Extension Service
at 482-9620 for further in-
formation on how to pur-
chase a hog at auction,
meat-packer information,
or how to sponsor an ex-
hibitor. UF/IFAS Jackson

Guest Opinion


Supercommittee


is no secret to


the well-heeled
By Scripps Howard News Service


Democrats, six Republicans is charged
wth coming up with $1.2 trillion in federal
budget cuts over the next decade. If the lawmak-
ers fail to'make their Nov. 23 deadline, $1.5 tril-
lion in across-the-board cuts are supposed to go
into effect automatically.
Clearly a lot of people and programs will be
affected by these cuts, which is perhaps why the
supercomittee is deliberating in deepest secrecy
behind closed doors. Well, secret from you and us
in the press.
There's no telling how dangerous it would be
if this information what gets cut and how
much fell into the hands of the general public.
Presumably, we can't handle the truth, at least
not until the politicians have had a chance to slap
some lipstick on it and claim it's job-creating.
But the supercommittee's deliberations are not
secret from K Street, Washington shorthand for
high-powered, deep-pocketed lobbyists with
connections. That's definitely not us and very
likely not you, either.
But, reports Politico, "K-Streeters with deep ties
to supercommittee members and congressional
leadership say senior staffers have given them
readouts from closed-door committee meetings."
Politico reports that top aides to GOP Senate
leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky and Sen. Jon
Kyl, R-Ariz., met last week with Republican lobby-
ists to brief them on a number of topics, includ-
ing "the prospect for a grand deal." Surely that's
information you'd like to have but you're not
going to get it, not for free, at any rate.
SKyl and other committee members brushed
hurriedly past the reporters who had been wait-
ing outside a closed-door meeting for six hours in
hopes of getting a question or two in.
These are your elected representatives and
they are supposed to report to you, at least that's
what your eighth-grade civics textbook said. Well,
forget all that.

Letter to the Editor

Clean energy is the way to go

We need clean energy now. Not only will it create jobs,
it will be healthier for all of us. We don't need diriy coal,
oil and gas. These sources need to be things of the past.
They are not sustainable. All they do is damage our
planet and ruin our riatural resources that we need to
live. You can't eat, drink, or breathe oil, gas or coal.
I noticed an influx of commercials for "clean gas" and
"clean coal;" it is all nonsense from huge corporations
who know their time is limited and are trying to make
Americans believe that it is good, when it is not. Solar,
wind and water power make more sense. They occur
naturally and do not make pollution, so we will breath-
er easier, be able to eat the fish we catch without worry
of toxic chemicals, and drink clean water we need to
live. We will also leave a beautiful place more beautiful
for future generations.
We need clean energy jobs now.

Perry may be in decline


BY JOHN M. CRISP
Scripps Howard News Service

A e crave narrative to help
us make sense of the
world. In need of a narra-
tive after last month's Republican
debate in Orlando, many in the
media adopted "The Rise and
Fall of Rick Perry." Gov. Perry's
tale follows a satisfying storyline
that others Trump, Bachmann
- have played out previously and
that Gov. Chris Christie and Sarah
Palin avoided by bowing out of the
race, at last.
Perry is down, but I don't know if
he's out. On at least one occasion
during the debate, Perry stumbled
through what should have been
well-practiced boilerplate meant
to highlight apparent contradic-
tory positions held by the "old"
Mitt Romney and the "new" Mitt
Romney. As Perry began to run off
the tracks, many in the audience
could probably have finished the
speech with more eloquence than
he managed.
But Perry's real problem during
the debate wasn't eloquence; it was
his unwillingness to take a hard line
on illegal immigration.
For example; to the other Repub-
lican candidates, most of them
from non-border states, a 2,000-
mile border fence between the
U.S. and Mexico is an abstraction
or an attractive fantasy. Like many
Texans, Perry appreciates the vast,
deserted spaces that lie between


the two countries and the futility of
trying to keep Mexicans out of the
U.S. with a fence, no matter how
tall or how long.
A fence, though fun to talk about,
isn't really a feasible resolution to
our border problems. Unfortunate-
ly for Perry, his position won't win
him points with primary voters, but
he deserves credit for being on the
right side of the issue.
The real damage occurred when
Perry questioned whether Republi-
cans at least the kinds of Repub-
licans inhabiting the audiences
during the first several debates
- actually have "hearts."
It's not an unreasonable question.
Not much "heart" was evident in
the audience when the fate of the
hypothetical, very sick but unin-
sured 30-year-old man was consid-
ered. In fact, "heart" is what keeps
one from cheering the executions
of 234 death row inmates in Texas,
even if they had it coming. And
"heart" is called for when consider-
ing the fate of several million young
illegals that were brought to the
U.S. as children.
I've written about them before.
They occasionally show up in my
classroom after having spent nearly
their whole lives in Texas, attending
public schools, speaking English,
eating American food, marching in
the band, playing football that is,
growing up in virtually every way as
an American. Mexico is as foreign
to them as it would be to any Anglo.
They were brought here by par-


ents who were not only allowed to
"sneak" into our country, but were
encouraged to come here order
to supply the cheap labor that
helps keep the price of our fruits
and vegetables down. We've de-
pended on them. In fact, as I write,
fruits and vegetables are rotting
in Alabama, unharvested because
of the absence of cheap Mexican
laborers who have fled the state in
response to Alabama's crackdown
on illegal immigration.
For all practical purposes, these
young people are Americans. But
they're also criminals, of course,
and they live in fear of being
stopped for a minor traffic viola-
tion. Deportation to Mexico lurks
ominously in the background.
Perry's problem is that he sup-
ports the Texas version of the
Dream Act. Young "Texans" who
were brought here as children,
through no fault of their own, as
'Perry puts it, are permitted to at-
tend public colleges and universi-
ties at the in-state tuition rate.
Of course, the letter of the law
says that they should be deported.
But, let's face it: Sending them
back to Mexico would be a "heart-
less" thing to do. It will come as a
surprise to many Texans, but Gov.
Perry may have too much "heart"
to win the nomination.

Know when the government tracks you


BY NAT HENTOFF

f we continue to be under secret
surveillance by our govern-
ment, the next generation and
those that follow will regard this
lack of privacy as normal. If that
is the case, will this then still be a
self-governing republic with indi-
vidual constitutional liberties?
Two members of Congress who
are familiar with and committed
to the Constitution have intro-
duced a bill of pivotal historic sig-
nificance: the Geolocation Privacy
and Surveillance ("GPS") Act. They
are Sen. Ron Wyden, D-Ore., and
Rep. Jason Chaffetz, R-Utah.
These lawmakers say that "new
technologies like cellphones,
smartphones, laptops and naviga-
tion devices (GPS) are making it
increasingly easy to track and log
the location of individual Ameri-
cans, yet federal laws have not kept
pace with the technology."
Adds Chaffetz: "I think it's great
that GPS and tracking technol-
ogy exists. What isn't great is the
idea that this technology can be
used to track somebody without
their knowledge. It is the job of
Congress to protect and defend
the United States Constitution and
the personal liberties provided tp
American citizens under the Fourth
Amendment."
Readers, do you agree, as Chaffetz
says, that "the government and law
enforcement should not be able to
track somebody indefinitely with-.
out their knowledge or consent, or
without obtaining a warrant from a
judge"?
Here we go along with Wyden and
Chaffetz on the path to becoming
fully American again. The GPS Act:
"requires the government to show
probable cause and get a warrant
before acquiring the geolocational
information of a U.S. person, while
setting out clear exceptions."
Among the exceptions are


"emergency or national security
situations." I'll address more about
the exceptions later on, but it's
important to know that the GPS Act
"prohibits unlawfully intercepted
geolocation information from be-
ing used as evidence."
So, when would law-enforcement
agencies have to get a warrant to
track where you are? When they
"want to monitor individuals'
movements directly, using covertly
installed tracking devices or similar
means. Iri emergency situations,
it would allow law enforcement
officers to obtain the information
that they need immediately and
then get a warrant for their actions
later."
And what follows is important
because so many of us use cell-
phones and other communications
devices that we buy from private
companies. The act would "require
law enforcement agencies to get a
warrant when they want to acquire
an individual's geolocation infor-
mation from a private company."
But what about the tracking
that private companies do in the
normal course of business? The
GPS Act this cellphone user is
glad to say "makes it clear that
these companies are only allowed
to share or sell customers' data
with the consent of individual
customers."
Hey, but will smartphone apps
continue to be allowed to access
individual users' locations? Yes, "if
the customer has given consent for
his or her geolocation information
to be shared for these purposes."
I have heard supporters of gov-
ernment national security surveil-
lance insist that when an individual
is in a public space, he or she has
no expectation of privacy. On Jan.
26, Wyden at a Policy Forum at
Washington's Cato Institute, where
I am a senior fellow answered
them:
"I agree that if you drive from


your horpe to the grocery store
you obviously expect that other
people might see you. But tracking
someone's movements 24/7 for an
extended period of time is quali-
tatively different than observing
them on a single trip to the store.
"If you monitor a person's move-
ments for several weeks, you can
find out if they regularly visit a
particular doctor or psychiatrist,
or attend meetings of a locally
unpopular political organization,
or visit a particular house of wor-
ship, or often go to an AIDS clinic.
And you won't just find out one of
these things you'll find out all of
these things.... Tracking someone's
movements with a GPS device or
by monitoring their cellphone is
already cheap and easy, and it is
getting cheaper and easier."
Wyden added: "You can't tell me
- as some government lawyers
have argued in the past that
secretly tracking a person's move-
ments 24/7 isn't a significant intru-
sion on their privacy, and can be
done by meeting a lower standard
of evidence, or even no standard
at all. I believe that if you put this
question to most members of the
American public, they would con-
sider it a no-brainer."
Do you?
Meanwhile, the justly respected
Library of Congress Congressional
Research Service reminds us in its
"Legal Standard for Disclosure of
Cell-Site Information (CSI) and
Geolocation Information" that,
"as noted by scholars, advances
in cellular phone technology 'are
occurring so rapidly that they blur
distinctions made by legislatures
and courts as to what is required
to investigate, track, and/or search
and seize a cellular telephone.'"
Or to protect a private citizen us-
ing a cellphone.

State tax collections expected to fall sharply


The Associated Press

TALLAHASSEE State econo-
mists are predicting that Flori-
da's tax collections will fall short
by $1.3 billion to $1.7 billion over
the next two years.
Economists began meeting
Tuesday to draw up a new fore-
cast on state tax collections amid
signs that Florida's economy has
been stalling over the last few
months.
Gov. Rick Scott and legisla-
tive leaders will rely on these
forecasts to determine whether


more cuts will be needed in 2012
to schools, health care and other
state programs.
Scott is already making it clear
he still plans to push for more
tax cuts despite the drop in tax
collections.
He will begin rolling out his
legislative agenda over the next
few weeks.
Scott appeared on aTallahassee
radio station Tuesday morning
and said he would like to enact
further cuts to the state's corpo-
rate income tax as well as look at
whether there are fees now paid


by businesses that can be scaled
back. Scott has pledged to cut
taxes and regulations in order
to grow the state's economy and
create 700,000 jobs over seven
years.
"We need to look at all our fees,
can we get rid of a fee?" Scott said
on radio station WFLA.
Just a few weeks ago, lawmak-
ers were told there was a small
chance of a budget surplus for
2012.
But that has been wiped away
as tax collections have dropped
below what economists were


predicting just a few months
ago.
Florida relies primarily on the
state's 6 percent sales tax to bal-
ance its budget.
The new estimates suggest
that economists still anticipate
a small amount of growth in tax
collections this year and next
year, but not as much as they
predicted in the spring.
But still the drop in expected
collections means Scott and law-
makers will be confronted with
a budget gap since other costs,
including Medicaid, continue to


rise during a down economy.
Property values also continue
to decline meaning there are less
local property taxes available for
schools. Legislators would have
to decide whether or not to re-
place the local money with state
dollars.
Republican leaders have insist-
ed they will not raise taxes in or-
der to fill the potential shortfall.
The big political question is
whether the GOP-controlled
Legislature is willing to cut the
budget deeper in order to offset
the costs of Scott's tax cuts.


Scott: State doesn't need more anthropologists


The Associated Press

MIAMI -When it comes
to college degrees, Florida
Gov. Rick Scott is no fan of
anthropology.
In comments this week,
Scott said he wants the
state to shift more fund-'
ing to degrees that have
the best job prospects, and
repeatedly singled out an-
thropology as one of the
losers.
"How many more jobs
you think there is for an-
thropology in this state?"
Scott said Tuesday. "You
want to use your tax dol-
lars to educate more peo-
ple who can't get jobs in
anthropology?"
Those remarks and oth-
ers have set the anthropol-
ogy field afire.
"It's very unfortunate
that you would character-
ize our discipline in such a
short-sighted way," Virgin-
ia Dominguez, president
of the American Anthropo-
logical Association said in


"Education is more than providing fo

you are unaware that an-

She pointed to important

made in public health, ge-

"I think he made a casual
off-the-cuff remark per-

Fla. wants end to federal
oversight of elections
TALLAHASSEE Florida's top elec-
tions official is asking a federal court to
end federal oversight of state elections.
Any voting law changes in Florida are
required to be submitted to the federal
government to see if they meet federal
voting rights laws because of past dis-
crimination in five counties.
The GOP-controlled Florida Legisla-
ture passed a controversial election law
earlier this year, but it still has not taken
effect in Collier, Hardee, Hendry, Hills-
borough and Monroe counties.
Secretary of State Kurt Browning first
asked the Department of Justice to ap-
prove the changes, but then decided to
ask a federal court in Washington, D.C.,
to approve the law. Browning on Tuesday
asked the court to declare unconstitu-
tional the criteria used to force Florida to
ask for federal approval.

BP to clean up tar patties on
Pensacola Beach
PENSACOLA The oil company
responsible for last year's Gulf oil spill is
removing a cluster of tar patties buried in
Pensacola Beach.
The tar patties were discovered this
summer, but BP officials had to wait until
after sea turtle nesting season to remove
them. The Pensacola News Journal
reports crews roped off the area Monday.
The work is expected to take two days.
Crude oil that washed up on Escambia .
County beaches last summer after the
Deepwater oil spill disaster in April 2010.
A BP spokesman described patties as
larger than golf balls, but no larger than
cow patties.

Sea turtles fared well
in recent count
TALLAHASSEE This was a good year
for sea turtles in Florida.
The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conserva-
tion Commission reports a record high
annual nest count for green turtles in
2011 and a near record for leatherback
turtle nests. Both species are on the fed-
eral endangered list.
However, loggerheads did not increase
in numbers this year, with the nest count
close to average for the previous five
years. Loggerheads are the species that
nests most commonly in Florida.
Officials attributed the gains partially
to major conservation efforts over the
past few decades. Nest counts are per-
formed each year to measure seasonal
sea turtle nesting and to allow for accu-
rate comparisons of beaches and years.

Manatee County may start
'no-kill' animal shelter
BRADENTON Manatee County's
commissioners are considering whether
to adopt a "no-kill" policy for its animal
shelter.
Commissioners will discuss the resolu-


tion Tuesday. Under the plan, the shelter
would phase out euthanasia except in
the cases of terminally ill, injured or vi-
cious animals.
Officials told the Bradenton Herald that
a coalition of local animal rescue groups
came up with the alternative to regu-
larly killing shelter animals that are too
numerous.
The plan strives to increase the shelter's
"live release" rate from 61 percent to
more than 90 percent by next year. "Live
release" refers to animals that are adopt-
ed, returned to their owner or transferred
to an animal welfare organization.
The plan won't require additional fund-
ing, and may increase revenue and lower
costs to the county.

Teen gets 15 years
for beating toddler
GAINESVILLE -A north Florida teen-
ager is going to prison for 15 years for
beating a toddler because he wanted her
to feel pain like he did.
Nineteen-year-old Michael Devante
Williams pleaded guilty Monday to
aggravated child abuse and was im-
mediately sentenced. He will also serve
15-years of probation after his release.
He had faced a maximum sentence of 30
years. Williams was arrested in January
for beating his girlfriend's 18-month-old
girl as she slept. The Gainesville Sun re-
ported that he told police he beat the girl
because he felt pain and wanted some-
one else to hurt, too.
The girl suffered.a bruised heart, a
bruised lung and a broken rib.

Fight between homeless men
turns fatal
POMPANO BEACH Broward County
Sheriff's officials say a fight between two
homeless turned fatal when they rolled
into a nearby canal.
Sheriff's spokesman Mike Jachles says
the fight continued in the water until
50-year-old Thomas James Dean killed
the other man and left him in the water
Monday afternoon. He did not indicate
what the fight was about or how the
victim died.

Auxiliary trooper kills intruder
outside her home
PENSACOLA Police say an auxiliary
Florida Highway Patrol trooper shot and
killed a neighbor who walked uninvited
into her home with a bow and arrow.
Authorities say Tabbatha Nussbaumer
was in the shower when her young son
told her the neighbor was in the house
Monday night.
The Pensacola News Journal reports
the woman confronted the neighbor,
who asked for money. She told the man
to follow her out to her truck where she
had left her wallet.
Police say she retrieved a revolver from
the truck and when the man made a
move toward her, she shot him.

SUBMITTED PHOTO,
Marianna High.School FFA is teaming up with L&E Farms LLC, chestnut growers, located in

find just the right mix of chestnut to
grass, hay and other components of the
beef cattle diet.
English said he'd love to see the local
.FFA use his cast-off chestnuts to make
themselves a powerful presence on the
ground floor of the new market. He's try-
ing to help link them up with resources
in South Wales; neither he nor Solger
have been able to find anyone in the
U.S. who's involved in the chestnut-fed
market.
"I don't know anything about raising
beef, but I like the idea of helping kids
find a program that could supplement
what they're doing," English said. "It just
appealed to me. It seemed like the right

county owns, in order to have enough
for the presidential preference primary,
which typically draws lower voter turn-,
out than the general and primary elec-
tions. She estimates the cost 'of resting
eight at around $4,400, or $550 each.
With voter numbers expected to be
higher in the primary and general elec-
tion, she said she'll need to rent 20, at a
cost of about $11,000 for each of those
events.
With Stephens not yet in possession
of an actual contract proposal from the
company offering to lease the units un-
der these terms, commissioners said'
she'll have to come back with those writ-
ten documents before they will take ac-
tion on her proposal. .
Stephens said the machines are neces-
sary in order to meet new state require-
ments for reconciling election results.
The system will help officials verify that
the total ballots cast in each precinct
matches up with the number of voters
with "voter history" at the locations.
Currently, voters sign a paper precinct
register and are manually given a ballot-
issuing ticket. Occasionally, Stephens
said, a voter fails to sign the precinct
register. This case voter history totals to
differ from the precinct-level election
results.
Legislation passed in 2010 now re-
quires officials to reconcile the history
totals with the precinct results. The pro-
cess will be time-consuming without the
EViDs, she said, requiring poll workers
to go through all the ballot issue tickets,
backtracking to find out which voters
did not sign the register.
The EViDs will prevent such discrep-
ancies, Stephens said, because when
voter information is processed on the
machines, the voter's ballot- issuing
ticket won't print until the voter signs an
electronic signature pad.
Stephens also asked the board to buy
or lease a new election system and its
software support package.
Stephens said it is meant to replace
a previously purchased system which
will soon become obsolete because of
legislative action taken in 2007. Florida
counties have until 2016 to make the
necessary changes. Lawmakers required
in that legislative change that all voting
should be by paper ballot-referred to as
a marksense ballot-and that each poll-
ing location have a paper-based Ameri-
can Disabilities Act-compliant voting
system.
The only product certified to meet this
requirement is the AutoMARK system,
Stephens said. It is a touch screen de-
vice that disabled voters can use to vote
unassisted, so their ballot will be fully
secret as'constitutionally required. The
voters using the system would be issued
a marksense ballot that they would insert
into the AutoMARK unit. Ballot choices
and instructions are shown in large-text
print on the touch screen monitor, and
they're also read aloud by an audio sys-
tem. The voters would enter their selec-
tions by touching buttons on the screen.


thing to do. They've been out to my or-
chard a couple of times, and they seem
excited about it. It would be cool if they
could get something going."
English takes part in the Fresh from
Florida market program run by the state
and is president of USA Chestnut, Inc., a
growers' co-op. He said he'd be happy to
see local young producers-in-the-mak-
ing find a niche early in what appears
to be a growing world-wide demand for
chestnut-fed cattle.
Solger said in an email about this ex-
periment that some chestnut-fed cattle
will be available in the Jackson County
Fed Cattle Show and Sale next February.
In that event, FFA members sell the cat-
tle they've raised through the previous
months. It gives local people a chance
to individually buy fresh-from-the-field
animals on the hoof, then arrange for
processing the meat.


MARKSKINNER/FLORIDAN
Jackson County's existing iVontronic voting
system will have to be replaced by an
AutoMark voting System because of action
by the Florida Legislature. An iVontronic unit
is seen here.
The AutoMARK system then marks the
voter's paper ballot and returns it to the
voter, who then checks it for accuracy
and inserts it into a ballot tabulator.
The county had previously bought a
different system from the same vendor
offering the AutoMARK deal. Because
the previously-purchased equipment is
soon to be rendered useless to the coun-
ty because of changes in Florida regula-
tions, the vendor, Election Systems and
Software, is offering to buy the old equip-
ment back from the county at a price of
$200 per unit. The county had originally
paid between $1,000 and $1,500 for each
of them, Stephens estimated, and made
annual payments of about $8,053 to ser-
vice and maintain the system.
If the county takes the new deal, it
would realize about $6,600 in this buy-
back, with the money to be used on the
AutoMARIK lease agreement. To rent
17 of the new units, the county is look-
ing at a cost of about $8,330 a year. This
price includes routine maintenance and
training of system operators. The county
could also eventually purchase the Au-
toMark equipment; at the end of a five
year lease agreement, the total purchase
price would be $5,100.
There's one catch with the AutoMARK
deal; to get it at the prices listed, the
county would have to agree to continue
hiring Election Systems and Software to
print the county's ballots.
The company has provided this service
since 2002, at a cost of 31-cents per ballot
for smaller ballots, and at .33-cents per
ballot for larger ones in the upcoming
election year. The ballots cost the county
.29-cents each in 2010. Stephens said
this slight elevation in price is typical.
Some county commissioners, in re-
viewing options presented by Stephens
on both proposals, said they'd probably
rather lease equipment than again wind
up owning another set of machines they
might not be able to use down the road.
They voted to accept the AutoMark deal
"in principle," but would not commit to
a binding agreement until they see the
proposal in a contract form and have
board attorney Frank Baker review the
document to determine its suitability.

Jack Kenneth Melvin, 94,
departed this life to be with
Jesus Christ his Savior,
Tuesday, October 11, 2011.
He worked for many
years in the aviation indus-
try and air mail pick-up.
He was an Army Air Corps
reservist during WWII,
worked with reconnais-
sance aircraft development
during the Cold War; and
with NASA during the Mer-
cury and Surveyor pro-
grams. He was a field serv-
'ice engineer with UniMac,
Inc. until his retirement at
age 71. He will be loved
and greatly missed'-by all
his friends and family.
He was preceded in
death by four brothers, one
sister, a daughter, Mary
Ann Roberts, a son, Doug-
las Louis Melvin, a grand-
son Bryan Daniel Breuer
and a great-grandson,
Hunter James Melvin.
Survivors include his
wife of 68 years, Annie

neth Roy Melvin and wife
Frances of Marianna; his
daughter, Toni Joy Melvin
of Marianna; son-in-law

and three nieces, Dorothy


Hill and Patrick Ewing are co-sponsoring
the Morgan fundraiser.
Even before Air Force One had touched
down at Orlando International Airport,
about 60 protesters had gathered outside
the hotel with signs that read "Obama
Done" and "Stop Spending." The protest-
ers ranged in age from college students
to senior citizens. Obama did have a few
supporters, including a grade-school-age
boy on a bicycle who held up a sign, "We
love you, Mr. Obama."
From wire reports


collection's have dropped below what
economists were predicting just a few
months ago.
Florida relies primarily on the state's 6
percent sales tax to balance its budget.
The new estimates drawn up Tuesday
suggest that economists still anticipate a
small amount of growth in tax collections
this year and next year, but not as much
as they predicted in the spring.
But still the drop in expected collec-
tions means Scott and lawmakers will be
confronted with a budget gap since other
costs, including Medicaid, continue to
rise during a down economy.
Property values also continue to decline
meaning there are less local property tax-
es available for schools. Legislators would
have to decide whether or not to replace
the local money with state dollars.
Scott as well as Republican leaders have
insisted they will not raise taxes in order
to fill the potential shortfall.


necessary, and will get another $20,750
for the additional work.
The county also paid another company
$2,500 to conduct a mandatory survey of
the property.
Green said the additional costs of the
project will be paid for, in part, with some
leftover funds in his department's proTes-
sional and contractual services line item.
Some additional funding will come from
the company that will harvest trees off
the property to make way for the pit. The
same company is also harvesting trees
from another, smaller pit site in another
area of the county, and Green said the
revenue stream could help pay for the ad-
ditional Pike Pond pit work.

US ties Iran to plot to assassinate Saudi diplomat


The Associated Press

WASHINGTON The Obama
administration accused Iranian
government agents Tuesday
of plotting to assassinate the
Saudi ambassador in the United
States and immediately used the
thwarted plot to ratchet up sanc-
tions and recruit international
allies to try to further isolate
Tehran.
Two men, including a mem--
ber of Iran's special foreign ac-
tions unit known as the Quds
Force, were charged in NewYork
federal court with conspiring to
kill the Saudi diplomat, Adel Al-
Jubeir. Justice Department offi-
cials say the men tried to hire a
purported member of a Mexican
drug cartel to carry out the as-
sassination with a bomb attack
while Al-Jubeir dined at his fa-
vorite restaurant.
"The idea that they wpuld at-
tempt to go to a Mexican drug
cartel to solicit murder-for-hire
to kill the Saudi ambassador, no-
body could make that up, right?"
Secretary of State Hillary Rod-
ham Clinton said in an interview
with The Associated Press.
Clinton was blunt in saying the
United States would use the case
as leverage with other countries
that have been reluctant to ap-
ply harsh sanctions or penalties
against Iran. Clinton said she
and President Barack Obama
called world leaders to tell them
of the developments.
"This really, in the minds of
many diplomats and govern-


ment officials, crosses a line that
Iran needs to be held to account
for," Clinton said. She said she
and Obama want to "enlist more
countries in working together
against what is becoming a
clearer and clearer threat" from
Iran.
The U.S. criminal complaint
said the Iranian plotters hired
a would-be assassin in Mexico
who was a paid informant for the
U.S. Drug Enforcement Admin-
istration and told U.S. authori-
ties all about their plot, which
they code-named "Chevrolet."
FBI Director Robert Mueller
said many lives could have been
lost. But Preet Bharara, the U.S.
attorney in Manhattan, said no
explosives were actually placed
and no one was in any danger
because of the informant's co-
operation with authorities.
Attorney General Eric Holder,
appearing at a news confer-
ence with Mueller and Bharara;
declared, "The United States is
committed to holding Iran re-
sponsible for its actions."
Shortly afterward, the Treasury
Department announced eco-
nomic penalties against Arbab-
siar and four Quds Force officers
it says were involved.
Asked whether the plot was
blessed by the very top eche-
lons of the Iranian government,
Holder said the Justice Depart-
ment was not making that accu-
sation. But he said the conspir-
acy was conceived, sponsored
and directed from Tehran. The
U.S. describes the Quds Force as

Washington on Tuesday.


Iran's primary foreign action arm
for supporting terrorists and ex-
tremists around the world.
The White House said Obama
told al-Jubeir in a phone call that
the foiled plot to assassinate him
is a "flagrant" violation of U.S.
and international law. Obama
also told al-Jubeir he is commit-
ted to ensuring the security of
diplomats in the United States,
the White House said, and met
with his national security team
to thank them for disrupting the
plot.
The Obama administration
has often said that no option is
off the table with Iran, a position
that a U.S. official said had not
changed Tuesday. But the offi-


cial,'who spoke on condition of
anonymity because he was not
authorized to discuss the policy
publicly, said the emphasis now
is on increasing diplomatic and

The alleged target was Al-Ju-
beir, a commoner educated at
University of North Texas and
Georgetown who was foreign af-
fairs adviser to Saudi KingAbdul-
lah when he was crown prince. A
month after the 2001 attacks, in
which 15 of the 19 Arab hijackers
were from Saudi Arabia, Abdul-
lah sent al-Jubeir to the United
States to rebuild Saudi Arabia's
image in the United States. He
-was appointed ambassador in
2007.


Shiite Iran and Sunni Saudi
Arabia are the Mideast's two
most powerful countries and
have long vied for power and in-
fluence across the region. Saudi
Arabia and other countries like
Bahrain have accused Iran of
trying to create dissent in their
countries this year, during de-
mocracy movements across the
region.
The Saudi Embassy said in a
statement that it appreciated the
U.S. efforts to prevent the crime.
"The attempted plot is a despi-
cable violation of international
norms, standards and conven-
tions and is not in accord with
the principles of humanity," the
statement read.


GOP senators


vote to defeat


Obama'sjobs bill


S The Associated Press

WASHINGTON Unit-
ed against Barack Obama,
Senate Republicans voted
Tuesday night to kill the
jobs package the president
had spent weeks cam-
paigning for across the
country, a stinging loss at
the hands of "lawmakers
opposed to stimulus-style
spending and a tax in-
crease on the very wealthy.
Forty-six Republicans
joined with two Democrats
to filibuster the $447 bil-
lion plan. Fifty Democrats
had voted for it, but the
vote was not final. The roll
call was kept open to al-
low Sen. Jeanne Shaheen,
D-N.H. to vote. The likely
51-48 eventual tally would
be far short of the 60 votes
needed to keep the bill
alive in the 100-member
Senate.
The demise of Obama's
$447 billion jobs package
was expected, despite his
campaign-style efforts to
swing the public behind
it. The White House and
leaders in Congress were
already moving on to alter-
native ways to address the
nation's painful 9.1 percent
unemployment, including
breaking the legislation
into smaller, more digest-,
ible pieces and approving
long-stalled trade bills.
The White House ap-
pears most confident that
it will be able to continue
a 2-percentage-point So-
.cial Security payroll tax cut
through 2012 and to extend
emergencyunemployment
benefits to millions of
people if only because,
in the White House view,
Republicans won't want to
accept the political harm
of letting those provisions
expire.
White House officials are
also hopeful of ultimately
garnering votes for the
approval of infrastructure
spending and tax credits
for businesses that hire
unemployed veterans.

election next year in states
where Obama figures to
lose broke with their
party on Tuesday night's
vote. Every Republican
present opposed the plan.
Earlier in the day, Obama
capped his weeklong
campaign for the measure
in an appearance typical of
the effort a tough-talk-
ing speech in a swing state
crucial to his re-election. In
fact, it seemed aimed more
at rallying his core political
supporters heading into
the election than changing
minds on Capitol Hill.
"Any senator who votes
no should have to look
,you in the eye and tell you
what exactly they're op-
posed to," Obama said to
a union audience in Pitts-
burgh. "I think they'll have
a hard time explaining why
they voted no on this bill
- other than the fact that
I proposed it."
Democrats were not
wholly united behind the
measure. In addition to
Nelson and Tester, Sens.
Jim Webb, D-Va., Joe Man-
chin, D-W.Va., and Joe Li-
eberman, a Connecticut
independent who aligns
with Democrats, said they
oppose the underlying
measure despite voting to
choke off the filibuster.
Obama's plan would
combine Social Security
payroll tax cuts for workers
and businesses and other
tax relief totaling about
$270 billion with $175 bil-
lion in new spending on
roads, school repairs and
other infrastructure, as
well as unemployment as-
sistance and help to local

offs of teachers, firefighters

intervention was essential

"Right now, our economy
needs a jolt," Obama said.

and David Ganek, in New York, on Tuesday.

Protesters march past millionaires' NYC homes


The Associated Press

NEW YORK Now it's
personal: Hundreds of
anti-Wall Street protest-
ers held a "Millionaires
March" on Tuesday past
the homes of some of
the wealthiest executives
in America, stopping to
jeer "Tax the rich!" ahd
"Where's my bailout?"
Walking two-by-two on
the sidewalk because they
had no march permit and
didn't want to be charged
with blocking traffic,
members of the Occupy
Wall Street movement and
other groups made their
way up Manhattan's East
Side, along streets like Fifth
Avenue and Park Avenue
where some of the richest
1 percent of the popula-
tion live in townhouses
and luxury apartments.
They paused outside
buildings where media
mogul Rupert Murdoch,
banker Jamie Dimon and
oil tycoon David Koch
have homes, ard decried
the impending expira-
tion of New York's 2 per-
cent "millionaires' tax" in
December.
"I have nothing against'
these people personally. I
just think they should pay
their fair share of taxes,"
said Michael Pollack, an
office worker in a law firm.
He held up a sign with a
saying attributed to de-
partmeqt store founder
Edward Filene, "Why
shouldn't the American
people take half my mon-
ey from me? I took all of it
from them."
Pollack said: "It's time for
a new New Deal."
For the past 31A weeks,
protesters have besieged


a park in lower Manhattan
near Wall Street, denounc-
ing corporate greed and'
the gap between rich and
poor. The uptown march
marked the first time the
Occupy Wall Street move-
ment has identified spe-
cific people as being part
of the 1 percent the dem-
onstrators say are getting.
rich at the expense of the
rest of America.
When the march
reached Park Avenue and
East 93rd Street, protest-
ers stopped in front of a
building where they said
Dimon, JPMorgan Chase's
chairman and CEO, has
an apartment. Marchers
screamed, "Where's our
bailout?" and "How do we
end this deficit? End the
war, tax the rich!"
JPMorgan was among
the banks that received a
federal bailout, money it
has since repaid. Dimon
got supportive words
Monday from Mayor Mi-
chael Bloomberg, who is
himself a billionaire exec-
utive but whose East Side
townhouse was not on the
protesters' list of targets.
Dimon has "brought
more business to this city
than maybe any other
banker ih (the) modern
day," the mayor said. "To
go and picket him, I don't
know what that achieves.
Jamie Dimon's an honor-
able person working very
hard. He pays his taxes."
On Wednesday, Dimon
was to be the focus of an-
other protest, with dem-
onstrators gathering at
the New York City head-
quarters of JP Morgan
Chase to again focus on
the expiring tax.
Marcher Bahran Ad-


madi, a former taxi driver
and art dealer who is now
unemployed, said he has
"nothing personal" against
the rich. "But some of
them take people's blood,"
he said. "Everything goes
up the ladder while we
work harder and harder."
Outside one building,
protesters placed a giant
replica of a check against
the door. It was made out
to "The top one percent"
for $5 billion the size
of the impending state tax
cut for New Yorkers.mak-
ing $250,000 and more.
There were no immedi-
ate reports of any arrests.
The Occupy Wall.Street
protests in Manhattan's
Zuccotti Park have spread
to other cities, including
Atlanta, Chicago, Phila-
delphia, Seattle and Los
Angeles, and have become
a political issue, with Re-
publicans accusing the
'demonstrators of wag-
ing "class war" and Presi-
dent Barack Obama say-
ing he understands their
frustrations.
In Washington, six peo-
ple were arrested Tuesday
for demonstrating inside
a Senate office building.
More than 125 protesters
in Boston were arrested
overnight after they ig-


nored warnings to move
from a downtown green
space, police said. A don-
servation group had re-
cently planted $150,000
worth of shrubs, and of-
ficials said they were wor-
ried about damage.
The protest in New York
City came as the state
comptrollerissued a report
showing that Wall Street is
again losing jobs because
of global economic woes.
The job losses threaten
tax revenue for a city and
state heavily reliant on the
financial industry.
The industry shed 4,100
jobs in the late spring and
summer and could lose
nearly 10,000 more by the
end of 2012, Comptroller
Thomas DiNapoli said.
That would bring the total
industry loss to 32,000 po-
sitions since the financial
meltdown of 2008.
The sector employed
166,600 people in invest-
ment banks, securities
trading firms and hedge
funds as of August.
Christopher Guerra, an
artist and Occupy Wall
Street protester from New-
ark, N.J., said the job losses
aren't necessarily bad.
"That means mpre peo-
ple on our side," Guerra
said.

MHS takes


third at Cougar


XC Challenge


BY DUSTIN KENT
dkent@jcfloridan.com

The short-handed
Marianna Bulldogs cross
country team took a
third-place finish on Sat-
urday. at the Cougar XC
Challenge in Tallahassee.
Marianna was without
its No. 3 runner in Patrick
Cox, who was out due to
illness, while No. 2 runner
Isaiah McFarland com-
peted despite being un-
der the weather himself.
But the Bulldogs still got
solid performances from
their top runner Jesse
McGowan and standout
freshman John Metzler.
McGowan took sev-
enth overall with a time
of 17:53.7, while Metzler
was ninth at 18:14.8.
Zack Brockner came in
next at 22nd with a time
of 18:59.17, while McFar-
land was 27'h with a time
of 19:16.97.
Gavin Shouppe was the
fifth runner for Marianna
on the day, coming in 50'h
with a time of 20:30.23.
Marianna finished 46
seconds behind first-
place Lincoln in aver-
age time, but just eight
seconds behind sec-
ond-place North Florida
Christian.
"We wouldn't have
been first, but I think we
would've been second if
we had (Cox)," Bulldogs
coach Allan Gibson said.


While the lack of a full
complement of runners
didn't help, the coach
said there were also some
other challenges for his
team.
"We were probably a
little tired going into this
one, and the course was a
little hilly," he said. "Nat-
urally, that will slow you
down a little bit. I think
last week took a lot out of
us, and we had two hard
workouts last week that
left us dragging a little
bit.
"It was definitely an off
week for us in terms of
our times, but you can't
expect a (personal record)
every week."
Marianna will next
compete in the Dolphin
Dash in Lynn Haven on
Saturday, which Gibson
said his runners are very
eager for.
"They're getting
pumped for it. It's a flat
course, and they love to
run fast," he said. "We've
got to believe we'll get
better personal records.
That's what drives the
kids."
Toole finishes third
Marianna's Lindsey
Toole had another ter-
rific finish in Tallahassee
on Saturday, placing third
out of 66 runners with a
time of 21:39.53.
Toole was 24 seconds
off the first-place time.

CC men take 4 of 5

The Chipola Indians men's bas-
ketball team won four out of five
games in its preseason debut over
the weekend in Tallahassee and Co-
lumbus, Ga.
The Indians topped Chattanooga
State 61-29, Aiken Tech 42-25, Chat-
tahoochee Technical School 38-26
and St. Johns River 50-40.
The only non-victory came against
St. Petersburg, as the teams settled
for a tie after drawing even at 43-43
at the end of regulation.
Chipola coach Jake Headrick said
he was happy with what his team got


out of the weekend overall.
"We played five games in two days,
and I think as a team we got a lot bet-
ter every game," he said. "We were so
much better in game five on Sunday
than we were in game one on Satur-
day. A lot of that comes from guys
learning their roles more as they
went along.
"They learned what they need to
do to stay on the floor, which is to
defend and rebound, and execute
offensively. Through five games, we
Same a long way with that. By Sun-
day, we were playing some good
basketball."
Headrick specifically praised the
play of his four main post players:


Jason Carter, Joseph Uchebo, Kruize
Pinkins and Harl Watson.
"Those four guys down low did a
great job of scoring the ball when
they got it down there and control-
ling the glass and playing together,"
he said. "They were all cheering for
each other. They're all great team-
mates. It's nice to have four big-bod-
ied guys that can control the paint
and they did that."
However, the coach said he was
still looking for more from his pe-
rimeter players.

games, but those guys got better as

Sneads falls to Maclay in straight sets


BY DUSTIN KENT

The Sneads Lady Pi-
rates dropped their fourth
match in the last five Mon-
day in Tallahassee, losing
to Maclay in three straight
sets.
Maclay took the first set
25-8 before winning the
final two sets by scores of
25-15 and 25-13.
Haley Kole and Jade
Strawberry.each had mon-
ster games for Maclay,
combining for 31 kills on
the night, while Kole also
had eight ace serves and
20 digs.
Jordan Jackson led
Sneads with nine kills,.
while Ashley Rogers added
two.
Becca Aaron had a team
high 16 assists, while Emily
Jones had 13 digs.
Jackson and Aaron also
had nine digs each, while
Jackson added 19 serve
receives.
Jones had 18 serve re-
ceives, with Brandy Strick-
land adding 13 and Rogers
10.
Despite the loss, Sneads
coach Sheila Roberts
said she was proud of the
way her team performed
against a Maclay squad


that is one of the best in
the state.
"The scores were not
indicative of it, but that
was probably the best we
have played this year,"
the coach said. "I know it
sounds ridiculous, but Ma-
clay is a great team. Haley
Kole is probably one of the
best players in Florida,, and
she has a vicious topspin
serve that was real hard
for us to get adjusted to.
She had eight ace serves
before we even wpnt to the
line.
"But after we got adjust-
ed to it, we were much bet-
ter the rest of the way. We
really battled. The second
and third (set) scores don't
show it, but most all of
those points Maclay won,
they really had to fight for.
There were some great,
intense rallies back and
forth. Maclay has beaten
teams like Wakulla and
Florida High this year, but I
felt like they knew they had
played somebody after the
match."
It's no coincidence that
the first losses that the
Lady Pirates have suffered

The Chipola Lady Indi-
ans went 2-1 in their pre-
season debut on Saturday
in Columbus, Ga., taking
wins over Central Georgia
Tech and Georgia State
while losing to South Geor-
gia Tech.
The Lady Indians arrived
to the gym on Saturday just
15 minutes before the start
of their game with South
Georgia Tech, but didn't
appear affected as they
jumped out to an early
double-digit lead.
But the South Georgia
Tech full-court pressure
eventually took its toll on
Chipola, and the Lady In-
dians eventually fell by a
score of 50-39.
Chipola came back in the
second game to take a 42-
34 win over Central Geor-
gia Tech, and finished the
day with a 51-24 win over
Georgia State.
CC coach David Lane
said that the loss wasn't to-


tally unexpected given his
team's development in the
early stages of fall practice.
"(Sputh Georgia Tech)
pressed us and we have
not worked on any press
offense at all," the coach
said. "We knew coming
in that if we got pressed,
we would be in trouble.
They just wore us down.
We weren't real organized,
which we knew would be
the case, and they took ad-
vantage of it."
Games such as that is
part of the reason why Lane
said he doesn't always like
playing preseason games

"I don't know if it's neces-

to get in by that time," he
said. "But it is good to get a

do things he was happy
with.
"I think the things we
worked on, we did a

that was a good sign," he
said.
"Overall, I think we got

Ga. Tech prepares for



back-to-back road games

they're a legitimate title

ourselves in position to
have the best season we
can, by doing things the
way the coaches expect

Georgia Tech (6-0, 3-0
ACC) is heading into its
only stretch of back-to-
back road games, starting
with Saturday's contest at
Virginia, followed by a trip
south to face Miami.

Next week, the Yellow

but Johnson knows this
could be a defining stretch
for a team that is growing


in confidence with each
win.
, "It's really tough," he
said. "Any conference
game on the road is
tough."
These two games are vi-

"But I don't look ahead.
That's the best way to do
it. Just focus on Virginia,
then worry about the next

The Cavaliers created all

selves in their last game,
nearly allowing Idaho to
bounce back from a two-
touchdown deficit. They
gave up a blocked punt for
a touchdown and turned.
it over three times. The
Vandals went for the win
in overtime, but a two-

and Virginia escaped an
embarrassing upset.
Johnson is undoubtedly
reminding his team of all

The teams played a best

The Lady Pirates dropped
two matches on Saturday
to 5A Arnold, a team they
had beaten on Sept. 26
in Sneads, and picked up
their first win over 4A God-
by in two sets by scores of
25-19 and 25-22.

members or expand to 12.


"We can't address the 10
vs. 12 until we determine
that Missouri is going to
be one of the 10," he said.
"There's no consensus at
the present time between
the conference members
as to 10 or 12."
TCU accepted an invita-
tion Monday to join the


Big 12. The Horned Frogs
will replace Texas A&M,
keeping the league at 10
members when the Aggies
leave for the SEC next July.
While TCU will be the
first new member since
the Big 12 started play in
1996, Texas A&M will be
the third school to leave.


Nebraska (Big Ten) and
Colorado (Pac-12) left this
year.
There were some indica-
tions after Big 12 athletic
directors met last month
that some might be in
favor of staying at nine
members. That has appar-
ently changed.

Fox: Tim Tebow the Broncos starter


The Associated Press

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. The
Denver Broncos will start Tim
Tebow against the Miami Dol-
phins when they return from
their bye week, coach John Fox
said Tuesday.
Tebow supplants Kyle Orton,
who has struggled ever since
winning the job with a spectacu-
lar training camp.
Replacing Orton at halftime
Sunday, Tebow nearly led the
Broncos back from a late 16-
point deficit, falling a despera-
tion pass short in a 29-24 loss to
San Diego.
Tebow had his troubles rust,
three fumbled snaps and six mis-
fires in 10 pass attempts- buthe
ran for a touchdown and threw
for another while energizing the
Broncos and fans frustrated by
a franchise mired in mediocrity
since its last winning season in
2005.
Orton continued a puzzling
slide Sunday when he went 6 for
13 for 34 yards against the Char-
gers arid threw his seventh inter-
ception, tied with Michael Vick
and Philip Rivers for most in the
league.
He also has two fumbles, in-
cluding a costly one against Oak-
land in the opener when he lost
the ball without being hit while
winding up to throw to a wide-
open tight end for the go-ahead
score late in the fourth quarter of
a 23-20 loss.
Orton, who's in the final year
of his contract, is 6-21 since win-
ning his first six games as Den-
ver's starter.
The Broncos tried to trade Or-
ton, who's making $9 million this
season, when the lockout ended,
but talks with Miami broke down

in Englewood, Colo.


and Fox instead threw open the
quarterback competition, some-
thlng for which Tebow proved
ill-prepared.
Orton had worked extensively
with teammates in workouts or-
ganized by safety Brian Dawkins
during the lockout. So had
Tebow, but he also spent time
pitching products and his auto-
biography across the country.
Orton's and Brady Quinn's off-
season workout program paid
off when training camp rolled


around.
Orton maintained his stran-
glehold on the starting job and
Quinn appeared to win the
backup job despite a poor per-
formance in the final preseason
game, but Fox said this week that
wasn't really the case: Tebow was
his No. 2.
This despite Tebow showing
almost no progress in becoming
the pocket passer that Broncos
football chief John Elway has
said he must become to make it


in this league.
His footwork was still flawed,
his throws were still off-target,
and he even had trouble with the
most basic of football plays: the
center-quarterback exchange,
after spending most of his foot-
ball career playing out of the
shotgun.
He showed, however, that there
was some validity, to the notion
.he's a "gamer" by posting decent.
stats in preseason games, but he
clearly was outplayed by Orton.


So, it was Orton's job to lose
- and he did.
Tebow, who received a $6.7 mil-
lion bonus in August, was used
sparingly by the new coaching
staff at first. He came in as a de-
coy in the slot when the Broncos
ran out of receivers against Cin-
cinnati in Week 2, and he took
one snap, running for minus-2
yards at Green Bay two weeks
ago before gaining 2 yards on a
keeper against San Diego in the
first half Sunday.
When he was heading up the
tunnel at halftime, offensive co-
ordinator Mike McCoy informed
him Orton was out and he was
in. Following punts on his first
three drives, Tebow found a
rhythm and the Broncos nearly
overcame a 26-10 deficit.
Now, the Broncos will have to
determine if they want to con-
tinue pressing him into becom-
ing a prototypical pro passer or
focus instead on capitalizing
on his skills that made him a
great combination college quar-
terback some say the best
ever.
Despite a resume that in-
cluded All-Ambrica honors, two
national championships and a
Heisman Trophy, Tebow never
came close to beating out Orton
last season, either.
Tebow started the final three
games last season -- going 1-2
- after Orton got hurt and the
organization decided to see what
they had in Tebow, whom former
coach Josh McDaniels had se-
lected with the 25th overall pick
in the 2010 draft.
As a rookie, he completed 50
percent of his throws and col-
lected five touchdown passes
and three interceptions. He also
ran for six TDs.


UCF coach: 'Everything in place' for Big East move


The Associated Press

ORLANDO Central
Florida coach George
O'Leary said Tuesday that
he's hearing from friends
around college football
with no ties to UCF that
"everything's in place" for
the Knights to soon be in-
vited to join the Big East
Conference.
O'Leary declined to iden-
tify his friends, but said
he's been kept in the loop
by UCF officials. However,
the coach said he had no
idea as of early Tuesday
afternoon if UCF had been
extended an official invita-
tion from the Big East.
"I would think that just
looking from a numbers
count, we'd be on the lips
of a lot of people obvious-
ly," O'Leary said. "I would
hope that they strongly
consider us. I would think
it would help them as
much as it's gonna help
us.
"...Just the people I've
spoken with, no UCF but
the people from the out-
side everything's in
place. It's a matter of put-
ting the gavel down and

Brief
QB Garcia dismissed
from South Carolina
COLUMBIA, S.C.
South Carolina quarter-
back Stephen Garcia has
been dismissed from the
Gamecocks.
Athletic director Eric
Hyman said the fifth-
year senior failed to meet
agreed-upon guidelines
put.in place after Garcia's
fifth suspension this past
spring.
Garcia had started 34
games, including four
this season before he was
benched in favor of sopho-
more Connor Shaw.
Garcia wore a black
baseball cap on the side-
lines against the Kentucky
Wildcats, encouraging
Shaw and patting him on
the back.
Coach Steve Spur-
rier said Garcia was given
several chances to be a
student athlete at South
Carolina and it was sad he
could not live up to that
commitment.

making a decision."
UCF officials did not im-
mediately respond to a re-
quest for comment.
Big East schools gave a
go-ahead Monday for the
conference to expand to as
many as 12 teams for foot-
ball, a move that could in-
volve adding six members.
UCF officials have said
moving to any conference


would require an all-sports
invitation.
The Big East has lost
some longtime members
during the ongoing con-
ference shuffle. Monday's
move by the school presi-
dents and chancellors is
its first formal attempt to
make up for its losses.
Syracuse and Pittsburgh
started the exodus by de-


ciding to leave for the At-
lantic Coast Conference.
The governor of Connecti-
cut has said UConn also is
interested in the ACC, and
there have been reports
that Rutgers, too, could
leave the Big East.
The league thought it
had strengthened its foot-
ball status by adding Texas
Christian. But TCU re-
versed course and' accept-
ed an invitation to join the
Big 12.
O'Leary said that he isn't
worried about moving to
the Big East and it possibly
losing its BCS automatic
bid when contracts expire.
"You hope the adminis-
tration has done due dili-
gence as far as their home-
work regarding all that and
I'm sure they will," he said.
"But I'm given a schedule
and I play the schedule
that's given and we go from
there."
Asked if he would like
a college football setup
controlled by a few super
conferences O'Leary, who
coached in the ACC at
Georgia Tech for eight sea-
sons, said he's always been
more in favor of playing


regionally.
"That's what football is
built on is regional play,"
he said. "Everybody looks,
when you bring in teams
from 6 or 7 states away it
may be great for TV and
all that, but it really hurts
players' families (and) the


fan base. The popularity of
football came because of
regional play and rivalries
and all that. You may have
one rival, but you have
people who you play four
or five years in a row. That
becomes a mini-rival type
of game."

Florida's 3 traditional football powers ailing


The Associated Press

CORAL GABLES For
those troubled by what's
happening in college foot-
ball across the state of
Florida right now, Jimbo
Fisher offers two reasons
to have hope.
One, Auburn.
Two, Alabama.
Not long ago, the Tigers
and Crimson Tide were
- by their lofty standards
- bad teams. Alabama
finished 2007 absent from
The Associated Press Top
25 poll. Auburn spent
much of the 2009 season
outside of the national
rankings. Both recovered
nicely, of course, proven
by the fact those programs
are the last two teams to
end the season hoisting
the crystal football that's
presented annually to the
national champion.
"Things happen for a
reason," said Fisher, the
Florida State coach,
Florida, Florida State and'
Miami would love to know
what that reason is and
howto fixthe problem. The
so-called "Big 3" of Sun-
shine State football share
countless bonds, such as
championship traditions,
Heisman Trophy winners,
legendary coaches and
enough NFL players to fill
a slew of pro rosters.
And now, add mediocrity
to that list.
For the first time since
Dec. 6, 1982, all are simul-
taneously unranked in the
AP poll. The Seminoles and
Hurricanes have losing re-
cords'after five games. The
season isn't half over and
all three are already out of
the national champion-
ship picture. Florida State
and Miami will need mira-
cles to happen if they're to
have even a tiny chance of


getting back into the Atlan-
tic Coast Conference race.
After 472 weeks in the
rankings, 10 national titles
and six Heisman Trophies
in the last three decades,
the 'Noles, Gators and
'Canes are starting anew.
"This is a surprising turn
of events," said Florida At-
lantic coach Howard Sch-
nellenberger, who started.
the Sunshine State surge
by coaching Miami to the
1983 national champion-
ship and is now in his final
season before retirement.
"The law of gravity, even
.the law of statistics, has
disallowed this kind of a
thing from happening for a
loqg time. But you can't go
on forever with something
this important."
The erosion of the state's
hold on college football
has been going on for
some time.
Miami's fifth and last
national title was in 2001,
and the Hurricanes haven't
even won an ACC cham-
pionship yet since joining
that league nearly a decade
ago. Florida State last ap-
peared in a BCS bowl game
at the end of the 2005 sea-
son and last won one of
those to conclude the 1999
national-title campaign.
Florida has captured two
of the last five national
championships, but even.
after a 4-0 start this year,
the Gators have lost seven
times in their last 15 games
overall.
"Everybody loses one
. day," Florida running back
Chris Rainey said.
Yes, but those days used
to be far less frequent.
For comparison's sake,
the Gators had lost only,
seven times in .61 games
before this current 8-7
run.
"Do I see improvement?


Yes," Florida coach Will
Muschamp said this week,
when asked about the state
of his team following con-
secutive losses to LSU and.
Alabama, who just happen
to be ranked No. 1 and No.
2 in the AP poll. "Is it what
we want it to be at this
point? No. Again, I look
at the season for an en-
tire season. I don't look at
one game or two games or
whatever. I've got to look at
the total body of work and
where we are and where
we've come from.
"Is it enough? Is it good
enough' at this point? No,"
Muschamp added. "But it's
never going to be."
There is one other obvi-
ous common thread at all
three schools. Fisher is in
his second season, making
him the longest-tenured
coach on the Seminole,
Gator or Hurricane side-
lines. Muschamp and Mi-
ami's Al Golden are in Year.
1 of their respective jobs.
Even in a state where
hundreds of high school
players sign college schol-
arships annually, winning
at the college level isn't
automatic anymore es-
pecially when programs
are in transition phases.
In fairness, all three of the
Sunshine State traditional
powers have dealt with
wild adversity already this
season.
Miami was rocked before
the year eyen began by an
NCAA investigation that
still lingers, and the Hurri-
canes have been decimat-
ed by injuries on defense
ag well. Florida and Florida
State have dealt with in-
juries to starting quarter-
backs, huge blows to both
teams.
"Health, depth, quar-
terback play, schedule,"
Golden said. "There's a lot


I .

of variables that come into
play."
There's also more places
for players to play now.
Three decades ago, there
was no Florida Interna-
tional football program,
no South Florida, no Cen-'
tral Florida, no Florida
Atlahtic.
Now they're gobbling
up plenty of talent from
all around the state. And
while the balance of power
isn't totally shifting yet,
one could easily argue that
the best team in the state is
South Florida, and the best
player is FIU's T.Y. Hilton.
"I would attribute it
as much to stability as I
would anything," South


Florida coach Skip Holtz
said Tuesday. "I think ev-
ery one of the programs in
state has an opportunity
to continue to build to get
to that point (back in the
Top 25) when the season
is over. I think there are
still strong teams, but I just
don't think we have the
same stability we had for
all those years."
The Bulls have three bowl
wins since 2007, matching
Florida and Florida State.
Florida Atlantic won con-
secutive bowl games in
2007 and 2008 the only
team in the state to do so
over that span. FIU won its
first bowl last year, capping
a huge turnaround season


for the Panthers. UCF won
its first bowl game in four
tries last year. Miami's last
bowl win came in 2006.
"I don't know if it has all
that much to do with all
of us who are new on the
scene here," said Schnel-
lenberger, who founded
FAU's program about a de-
cade ago. "I think the ma-
jor contest lies between the
three oldest schools here
in the state and the best
schools in the country....
The recruiting phase is just
a small part of it. You've got
coaching changes, you've
got more competition."
So at Florida, Florida
State and Miami, there are
more challenges ahead.

NFL



Arizona beats



out Tampa for



2015 Super Bowl


The Associated Press

HOUSTON -The Phoe-
nix area was awarded the
2015 Super Bowl by NFL
owners Tuesday, beating
the only other candidate
- Tampa, Fla.
This will be the third
time the Phoenix area
has hosted the game,
which will be played in
Glendale.
"We are thrilled to be
back in Arizona," Com-
missioner Roger Goodell
said. "I will say it was a
difficult choice."
Phoenix won on the
second ballot, prompting
screams of joy from the
Arizona committee.
"Everyone pulled to-
gether throughout the
Phoenix area to put to-
gether a terrific package
we were able to present
to the owners," Arizona
Cardinals President Mi-
chael Bidwill said. "We
are delighted."
The Super Bowl also
was held at University of
Phoenix Stadium in 2008,
when the Giants beat the
Patriots 17-14., Tempe,
Ariz., was the 1996 host,
with Dallas defeating
Pittsburgh 27-17. Tampa
hosted the game in 1984,
1991, 2001 and 2009.
"Both cities are great
sites for the Super Bowl
and both had impres-
sive bids," said Giants
owner John Mara, whose
team has won champi,
onships in both places.
"They've each been to the
altar a few times recently
and were denied. They
both deserve to host a


game again."
Next year's game is in
Indianapolis, followed by
New Orleans in 2013 and
the New York/New Jersey
area in 2014. The 2015
game is the 49th Super
Bowl. There is specula-
tion that the 50th anniver-
sary of the championship
game will wind up in Los
Angeles, where the first
Super Bowl was played in
1967, if a suitable stadium
is available.
Neither' Arizona nor
Tampa received the re-
quired 24 of 32 votes on
the first ballot, meaning
a simple majority was
needed on the next vote.
Goodell spoke with the
Tampa Bay group im-
mediately after it lost the
bidding.
"Anytime we are invited
to participate, we will do
so," said Paul Catoe, out-
going CEO of Tampa Bay
& Co.
Bidwill said the estimat-
ed economic impact in
Arizona in 2008 was more
than $500 niillion, and
he expects it to be higher
in 2015. While that num-
ber seems high because
subsequent Super Bowls
didn't reach that level, it's
still a major boon to local
business.
"The impact is .in the
multihundred millions
of dollars, and that is
significant value for any

ing the victim of your own
handiwork;

look upon you as their rock
of Gibraltar today, they're
likely to bring more trouble

Annie's Mailbox


Dear Annie: My husband, "Fred," is one
of many siblings. His mother passed
away several years ago. Since her death,
his father's negative and controlling na-
ture has become amplified. He is verbally
abusive and would never consider pro-
fessional help. Dad is in his early 80s, and
Fred says he has always been this way.
Family gatherings are made miserable
by his bullying and picking on whomever
he chooses to torment. He is never at
fault, he's "only kidding."
In recent months, Dad has felt free to
taunt our children, attempting to create,
competition between the grandkids by
showering some with large gifts and teas-
ing the.others abbut their cousins' good
fortune. When confronted, he claims that
some grandkids are more deserving than
others. He blatantly favors his daughters
and their families, taking them on lavish
vacations, setting up education funds,
etc. He categorically denies ever having
mistreated his sons' children, and the
sisters believe their dad.
Although we've tried to be a dutiful


Bridge
If the dealer passes, it means that his hand
does not have 12 high-card points or (prob-
ably) a long suit. In addition, though, if that
initial pass is in a composed lesson deal or a
newspaper column, it will help declarer with
the play. In this layout, how should South plan
the play in four hearts after West starts the de- W
fense with his three top clubs? 4
North's three-heart response is a limit raise, ,
guaranteeing a maximum pass and at least
four-card support. In either scenario, South
rebids four hearts. South ruffs the third club,
draws trumps and cashes his four diamond
tricks, discarding two spades from the dummy.
Then, with his contract on the line, he leads a
low spade, West playing low.
West had nine points in clubs. If he also held
the spade ace, he would have opened the bid-
ding. South should call for dummy's jack. Yes,
West might have stopped playing clubs af-
ter two rounds, shifting, say, to a trump. De-
clarer should then draw trumps ending in the
dummy and call for the club 10. If East had the
queen, it would take an iron nerve to play low
smoothly. Also, at trick one, East signaled with
the club two. If he had had the queen, he prob-
ably would have played a higher, encouraging
club.


family, helping out when needed and
entertaining the relatives on our fair
share of holidays, my husband has said
"enough." Fred has chosen to avoid all
family gatherings where Dad is present.
He won't subject our kids to the verbal
and emotional abuse that he endured his
whole life. For months, we have had little
contact with Dad or with Fred's sisters.
My kids miss their cousins.
The last time I talked with Dad, he
hung up on me. How can I bring peace
to this fractured family and keep our
children safe?
DAUGHTER-IN-LAW IN DISTRESS

Dear Distress: There are some relation-
ships you cannot fix, especially when the
other party is not cooperative. Your first
obligation is to protect your family from
those who treat them terribly. If your
husband needs to limit contact with his
father and sisters, please be supportive.
You can try to get your children together
with their cousins outside of family gath-
erings if their aunts are willing.

Anger grows at Egypt military in Christian deaths


The Associated Press

CAIRO Videos of
military armored vehicles
plowing through Christian
protesters and images of
their flattened bodies are
fueling rage against the
ruling army generals, even
beyond Egypt's Christian
community. Activists ac-
cused the military of fo-
menting sectarian hatred
as a way to end protests
and halt criticism.
Anger was also turning
on state television, blamed
for inciting attacks on
Christians as the military
crushed a Christian pro-
test late Sunday, leaving 26
dead, in the worst violence
since the February fall of
Hosni Mubarak.
The bloodshed was
seen by many activists as
a turning point in Egypt's
already chaotic transition:
the deadliest use of force
against protesters by the
military, which has touted
itself as the "protector of
the revolution." Criticism
has been mounting that


the military, which took
power after Mubarak's
ouster, has adopted the
same tactics as the former
regime and has been slow
to bring real change.
The repercussions began
to hit the interim civil-
ian government. Finance
Minister Hazem El-Beb-
lawi on Tuesday handed
in his resignation over the
government's handling of
Sunday's protest. El-Beb-
lawi effectively told Prime
Minister Essam Sharaf
that "he can't work like
this," said an aide to the
minister, who spoke on
condition of anonymity
because of the sensitivity
of the issue.
Christians vented their
fury at the overnight fu-
neral at the Coptic Chris-
tian Cathedral for 17 ofthe
at least 21 Christians killed
in the army attack.
Prayers were interrupted
by chants of "Down with
military rule" and "The
people want to topple the
field marshal," a refer-
ence to Field Marshal Hus-


sein Tantawi, who heads
the ruling military council.
No state official or military
official were present at the
funeral.
Egypt's Christians, who
represent about 10 per-
cent of the 85 million
people in this Muslim-
majority nation, have long
complained that they are
second-class citizens.
In recent years, increas-
ingly influential ultracon-
servative Muslims, known
as Salafis, have spread
rhetoric that Christians
are trying. to take over,
protesting against the
building of churches and
accusing Christians of
hoarding stocks of weap-
ons. Violence against
Christians, the majority
of whom belong to the or-
thodox Coptic Church, has
mounted since the fall of
-Mubarak as state control
has loosened.
Bahy Eldeen Hassan,
head of the Cairo Institute
for Human Rights Studies,
said the military may have
counted on sectarian sen-


THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
Egyptians are gathering around the coffins of 17 of the Copts who were killed during clashes
with the Egyptian army late Sunday, outside the morgue of the Copts hospital in Cairo, Egypt,
Monday. Egypt's Coptic church blasted authorities Monday for allowing repeated attacks on
Christians with impunity.


timent against Christians
to allow it to crush the pro-
test and.send a signal that
it will no longer tolerate
civil unrest and criticism.
"The message is to
-the whole society not to
Christians in particular. I
believe this is all in prepa-


ration with wider confron-
tation," Hassan said. "I am
afraid they used the Cop-
tic Christians exploiting
sectarianism and knowing
that Christians will receive
less sharper response from
the public," he added.
Sunday night's confron-


station began when thou-

European financial crisis


Slovakia passes on expanded eurozone bailout fund offer


The Associated Press

BRATISLAVA, Slova-
- kia- Slovakian lawmakers
on Tuesday rejected par-
ticipating in an expanded
euro rescue fund that is
aimed at shoring up confi-
dence in the ability of euro
members to survive the fi-
nancial crisis.
Slovakia's 1-year-old co-
alition government also fell
with the vote because the
prime minister had tied it
to a confidence measure.
After 10 hours of debate
in Parliament, the measure
calling on Slovakia to sup-


port the expansion of the
bailout fund failed to pass
by 21 votes. $
"Today we saved more
than 300 billion euros for
the European taxpayers
that would have been used
to bail out banks," said Par-
liament Speaker Richard
Sulik, who led Parliament's
opposition to the expan-
sion of the bailout fund.
Slovakia remains the only
country in'the 17-mem-
ber eurozone that has not
approved the package of
measures, which requires
unanimous support to go
into effect. The euro sta-

EU officials still could
find a way of getting
around the Slovakian re-
jection of the bill to boost
the powers and size of the
euro bailout fund, which is
designed to contain debt
market turmoil, but doing
so would carry costs to Eu-
ropean unity.
The "no" vote will further
complicate the eurozone's
efforts to deal with the cri-
sis, which already has seen
three countries get bail-
outs and raised fears of a
Greek default and massive
losses for banks.
As the vote loomed, Eu-


ropean Central Bank head
Jean-Claude Trichet gave
one of his most emphatic
warnings yet about the
need for swift action to
quell the crisis, which he
called "systemic."
"The high interconnect-
edness in the EU financial
system has led to a rapidly
rising risk of significant
contagion," Trichet told
a committee of the Euro-
pean Parliament. "This
threatens financial stabili-
ty in the EU as a whole and
adversely impacts the real
economy in Europe and
beyond."
