Suspended Malone councilman arrested again
From staff reports
Suspended Malone Town
Councilman Fred "Freddie" Lee
Jones was arrested on Monday
with three additional charges of
dealing in stolen property, grand
theft of a motor vehicle, as well
as a new charge of harassing a
witness, victim or informant.
Jones was arrested and charged
with two counts of grand theft
and two counts
dealing in stolen
property on April
24. Gov. Rick Scott
from office on
Jones According to one
Jones was paid $500 for a 1996
Oldsmobile and a 1998 Hyun-
dai from Tri-State Recycling and
Towing of Colquitt, Ga. The cars
were then sold to Mike's Auto
Sales of Donaldsonville, Ga., on
Dec. 28, 2010, and Jan. 3, 2011.
The victims reported the cars
stolen on May 7 to the Jackson
County Sheriff's Office. The com-
plaint stated Jones used a man
named Jarrod Brown to provide
the identification needed for
the initial transaction, but Jones
contacted Tri-State and received
all of the payment.
Jones is also accused of selling
a 1993 Buick to Mike's Auto Sales,
directing them to the location of
the car on Aug. 8, 2011, and later
giving them a bill of sale. Accord-
ing to the complaint, the victim
said he did'not sell or give the car
to Jones, authorize anyone to re-
move the car from his property.
He also denies being contacted
by Jones to remove the car from
his property or receiving pay-
ment for the car. The victim re-
ported the car missing on April
27 to the JCSO.

People wanting to celebrate the Fourth of
July should take safety precautions even
when using low powered fireworks like these
BY LAUREN DELGADO
With firework and barbecue season
upon us, officials are asking residents
to stay safe and remember some tips to
keep their holiday fun.
Only fireworks containing twenty-five
hundredths grains or less of explosive
compound are legal, essentially making
anything that flies or explodes illegal.
The only type of personal fireworks al-
lowed for personal use are snake or glow
worms, smoke devices, trick noisemak-
ers, party poppers, booby traps, snap-
pers, trick match, cigarette loads or
auto burglar alarms.
Even the legal fireworks are a fire
hazard. Jackson County Fire Marshal
Chuck Sawyer said people should keep
the area where the fireworks will be set
off damp to keep vegetation for catch-
ing fire. The best scenario would be to
have the fireworks on a hard surface
like asphalt or concrete.
He said adults should be the only ones
to set off fireworks. Never shoot the fire-
works at people or cars and never hold
a lit firework.,
Anytime you have an open flame,
keep a hose or a pail of water around in
case of a small vegetation fire, Sawyer
During this summer season, local

Evangelyouth raising money for missionaries
Evangel youth raising money for missionaries
BY LAUREN DELGADO
Residents and business owners
throughout Jackson County may
have a neon pink, range and green
surprise on their lawn in the coming
Evangel Worship Center's youth
group unveiled its new fundraiser
- the "Tacky Potty" for Speed
the Light, a charitable program that
supplies missionaries with much
needed supplies and equipment.
"SPL depends completely on
youth," said Christy McAllister, a
youth sponsor at Evangel.
For $25, residents can have the
potty delivered to a house or busi-
ness. They can pay an "insurance" of
$50 to never have the potty arrive at
their house or business. If the "Tacky
Potty" arrives on your lawn, a $20
donation will have it removed or for
$30 it can be removed and given to
"You can share the blessing with
others," McAllister said with a laugh.
Angie Carpenter and Cassie Wil-
lis, owners of Un2U Gifts in Mari-
anna, had the potty in front of their
business on Tuesday.
"I think it's a cool idea," Carpen-
ter said. "Those kids are always

WEDNESDAY, JULY 4, 2012 3AF
Letter to the Editor
I would like to offer some comments regarding the
article in yourThursday, June 22, 2012, issue, and the
matters addressed by it pertaining t the county roads.
The article was very elUl done and' accurately reflected
what transpired at the board meeting.
I would like it known thatI spoke by phone with Com-
missioner Stephens a few hours prior to the meeting.
I voiced my concerns as related at the meeting and re-
ported in your article. I told him that, on the entire two
miles of Stephens Road, there are 10 homes, not includ-
ing the vacant log home built over a century ago by my
great-grandfather. Two of those modern homes have
been vacant for a good portion of the last two years.
I stated that I did not know how long it takes from
initial conception to completion of a road project,
or to the point of determination of whether or not to
proceed with such.a project, but I would have thought
that."my" commissioner could have found the time to
consult with me or at least a member of my household
to determine our wishes or concerns. This is especially
true when considering his slightest whim could have
very real effects on the major financial asset that I own
which has an even greater value to me emotionally,,
culturally and historically. ,
There are only two members of my household, my
U.S. Marine Corps son and myself. Commissioner
Stephens told me that the majority of residents on the
road wanted it paved and that he was aware of only one
other person that did not want it paved. This statement
was very revealing in two respects. First, he obviously
found time to talk to several people who live in the
eight other occupied homes on the road. Secondly, the
wishes of a minority of constituents does.not matter.
In fact, his exact words'to me were, "Well;,it does not
Strikingly, this made rme feel at that time how T
,perceived Ms. Bowers-Brown stated she felt the night
of the meeting. 'had the feeling that Commissioner
Stephens decided.to, talk to those that mattered, and
not talk to those who:do:not. I would subrnutithatfwhile
I understand the concept of majority rule, the interests
and concerns of the minority should not be ignored.
I told Commissioner Stephens that I placed a flag-
pole on mypropertywhen my son graduated from
Marine basic training last year, and J proudly fly the
United States flag and the U.S. Marine Corps' flag on
my property. I told Commissioner Stephens of a line of
blueberry bushes thit'y 80-year-old father planted
about 25 years ago. They were given to him by a long
deceased friend and fellow church member. I asked,
at the meeting, if-the county would now take down my
flagpole and rip out the blueberry bushes. Economi-
cally, I realize we are talking pocket change, relatively
speaking. Emotionally, we are discussingmy treasures. I
received no reassurances. ....
The reporter obviously talked to Commissioner
Stephens after the meeting, because she stated that
he and I, though distant relatives, are not personally
acquainted. I found this to be very significant, as well.
He is facing reelection in November and I would not.
have known him by sight prior to the meeting. He not
only did not discuss this issue with me, he has never, to
my recollection, talked to me prior to the present when
running for election or at any other time, .
He has almost completed his term. This reinforces my
feeling of persona non gratis. I do not personally know
Commissioner Stephens. I cannot say, from personal
experience, that he is not an honest man or that he
lacks integrity. I can say, from personal experience, that

"We hold these truths to be selfevident, that allmen are created equal,
that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights,
that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit ofHappiness."
United States Declaration of Independence,
Our Declaration of Independence
IN CONGRESS, July 4,1776.
The unanimous Declaration of the
thirteen united States of America,
When in the Course of human
events, it becomes necessary for
one people to dissolve the.political
bands which have connected them
with another, and to assume among
the powers of the earth, the separate
and equal station to which the Laws
of Nature and of Nature's God entitle
them, a decent respect to the opin-
ions of mankind requires that they
should declare the causes which
impel them to the separation.
We hold these truths to be self-evi-
dent, that all men are created equal,
that they are endowed by their
Creator with certain unalienable
Rights, that among these are Life,
Liberty and the pursuit of Happi-
ness. That to secure these rights,
Governments are instituted among
Men, deriving their just powers from
the consent of the governed, -That
whenever any Form of Government
becomes destructive of these ends,
it is the Right of the People to alter
or to abolish it, and to institute new
Government, laying its foundation
on such principles and organizing
its powers in such formi:as to'them
shall seem most likely to effect their
Safety and Happiness. Prudence,
indeed, will dictate that Govern-
ments long.established should not
be changed /for light and transient
causes; and accordingly all expe-
rience hath shewn, that mankind
are more disposed to suffer, while
evils are sufferable, than to right
themselves by abolishing the forms
to which they are accustomed. But
when a long train of abuses and
usurpations, pursuing invariably
the same Object evinces a design to
reduce them under absolute Despo-
tism, it is their right, it is their duty,
to throw off such Government, and
to provide new Guards for their fu-
ture security. Such has been the
patient sufferance of these Colo-
nies; and such is now the necessity
which constrains them to alter their
former Systems of Government.
The history of the present King of
Great Britain is a history of repeated
injuries and usurpations, all having
in direct object the establishment
of an absolute Tyranny over these
States. To prove this, let Facts be
submitted to a candid world.
He has refused his Assent to
Laws, the most wholesome and
necessary for the public good.
He has forbidden his Governors to
pass Laws of immediate and press-
ing importance, unless suspended
in their operation till his Assent
should be obtained; and when so
suspended, he has utterly neglected
to attend to them.
He has refused to pass other Laws
for the accommodation of large dis-
tricts of people, unless those people
would relinquish the right of Repre-
sentation in the Legislature, a right
inestimable to them and formidable
to tyrants only.
He has called together legisla-
tive bodies. at places unusual, un-

ST. PETERSBURG, Florida Re-elect-

more time as a volunteer data collec-

here than at his paying job as a college
"He's had a hard time with a lot of

Call them passionate, idealistic, ear-
nest, even a tad naive: The volunteers
helping. to power the Obama and Rom-
ney campaigns are outliers at a time
when polls show record low public sat-
isfaction with government and a grow-
ing belief that Washington isn't on their
side. While motivated by opposing goals,
the volunteers have at least one thing in
common: an abiding faith in the political
process and a belief that who occupies
the White House still matters.
Surveys, however, show that many
voters don't share that optimism.
An Associated Press-GfK poll taken in
June found less than half of adults say the
outcome of the Nov. 6 election will make
a great deal or a lot of difference on three
key issues: the economy, unemployment
and the federal budget deficit.
Yet the volunteers soldier on.
"My best friend's father gave me grief
for coming here today," said Liesa Col-
lins, a Virginia Commonwealth Univer-
sity freshman volunteering at Obama
campaign headquarters in Richmond,
Va. "I grew up in a community that's way
more rich people, the Republican side of
things. So it's nice to be here at this office
and making a difference."
Both sides rely heavily on volunteer
labor even as spending on high-priced
staples like TV ads, polling and consul-
tants keeps rising. Indeed, many of a
campaign's most labor intensive tasks
are done by volunteers.

attacks across Iraq killed and wounded scores of people on Tuesday.
Iraq market bombs kill 40;
officials eye security bribes
The Associated Press
BAGHDAD Bombs pounded
six Iraqi cities and towns Tuesday,
killing at least 40 people and raising
suspicion that security forces might
be assisting terrorists in launching
attacks on Shiite Muslims.
The onslaught came just ahead
of a religious pilgrimage that could
attract even more violence.
A senior Iraqi intelligence official
said checkpoint guards might have
beenbribed to help al-Qaida-linked
Sunni insurgents plant bombs at
Shiite marketplaces. The attacks in-
jected new fear into Iraqis, resigned
to worsening violence six months
after the last American troops left
"We want to live a normal life,
but with the current spike in vio-
lence and victims, I am personally
thinking of moving," said Hassan
al-Saadi, 40, a Shiite sports equip-
ment store owner in Baghdad who
is considering pulling his fourchil-
dren from school for their safety.
"I see the future as worse,"
A spike in violence over the last
month is blamed partially on
Iraq's paralyzing political crisis,
which pits. Prime Minister Nouri
al-Maliki's Shiite-ed government
against rival Shiite politicians, Sun-
ni Muslims and ethnic Kurds who
complain they've been sidelined..
Also, the crisis in neighboring
Syria might have allowed weapons
intended for the opposition to Pres-
ident Bashar Assad to be siphoned
offto Iraqi insurgents.
Tuesday's deadliest attacks hit the
southern Shiite cities of Karbala
and Diwaniyah. Despite the risk,
hundreds of thousands of Shiite
pilgrims are expected to gather
Friday in Karbala for an annual
Sunnis also were targeted. Two
blasts hit a residential area in the
Sunni city of Taji, just north of the
capital, killing three people. Four
people died in bombings and
shootings in Sunni-dominated
Diyala province in Iraq's northeast.
In Diwaniyah, officials said an
explosives-laden vegetable truck
ripped through a crowded market,
killing 26 people and wounding
about 75 more.
"There were many charred bodies
on the ground," said vegetable sell-
er Salah Abbas, 41, who rushed to
help wounded people before am-
bulances arrived. "People. scream-
ing and crying some were com-
ing in to get their relatives while
others were running out."
The senior intelligence official
said there were at least two secu-
rity lapses in the market attack, and
money might have changed hands.
One guard at a security check-
point in Diwaniyah failed to prop-
'erly search the produce truck be-
cause he couldn't stand the smell
of rotting vegetables and fruit. An-
other guard allowed the truck to
enter the market instead of being
unloaded outside as security rules
require, the intelligence official

Arbitrator rules for Brees
in franchise tag matter
The Associated Press
NEW ORLEANS Drew Brees gained
additional leverage in his protracted con-
tract talks with the New Orleans Saints on
Tuesday when an arbitrator in Philadel-
phia ruled in Brees' favor in a dispute over
how much the Saints would have to pay
the star quarterback if they applied the
franchise tag to him again in 2013.
The Saints have already used the tag on
Brees for 2012, meaning he can't negotiate
with another team and could be forced to
settle for a one-year, $16.3 million dealif
he cannot reach a new long-term deal by
a July 16 deadline specified in the league's
collective bargaining agreement.
System, arbitrator Stephen Burbank's
rulingTuesday said if NewOrleans tries to
tag Brees a second year ina row, he would
be entitled to a 44 percent raise to about
$23.5 million because it would be his
third-career franchise tag. The NFL had
argued Brees would be due a 20 percent
raise because it would have been only his
second franchise tag with one team.
Burbank, however, ruled that while the
NFI's CBA has some ambiguity on the
matter, it is clear that the overarching
purpose, of the language regarding mul-
tiple franchise tags is meant to protect
players from being denied their rights to
free agency for an undue lerigth of their
"The arbitrator properly .rejected the
NFL's strained interpretation of the CBA
language, which ignored the fact that a
franchise player designation.is a narrow
exception to the overall free agency struc-
ture," the NFL Players Association said in
written statement after Burbank's ruling.
"This ruling will help all franchise players
in the future. We are very happy that Drew
Brees has clarification on this matter, and
we hope that it facilitates a successful ne-
gotiation for Drew and the Saints."
Brees has so far skipped the Saints'
offseason practices while holding out
for a new long-term contract with New
New Orleans designated Brees, 33, its
franchise player in March after the club
was unable to reach a new long-term
extension with the record-setting quar-
terback before his previous six-year, $60
million Contract expired.
During the past six seasons, Brees has
not only led the Saints to their only Super
Bowl title, but has completed more passes
(2,488) for more yards (28,394) and.more
touchdowns (201) than any other quar-
terback in the NFL..His 67.8 percent com-
pletion rate spanning the past six seasons
also tops the league.

NEW ORLEANS NFL Commissioner
Roger Goodell has rejected the appeals
of four players suspended in connection
with the league's bounty investigation of
the New Orleans Saints.
In a ruling handed down on Tuesday,
Goodell told Jonathan Vilma, Anthony
Hargrove, Will Smith and Scott Fujita that
each of them is still welcome to meet with
him to give'their side of the story, and that
he reserves the right to reduce the suspen-
sions should new information be brought
forth. Instead, however, the players in-
tend to fight Goodell's rulings through the
federal court system.
The players have declined to meet with
Goodell because they have argued that
Goodell lacked the jurisdiction to rule in
the matter and has violated the spirit of
the league's Collective Bargaining Agree-
ment by making'public statements about
the case that demonstrated he could not
be a neutral arbitrator.
The players likely would have relin-
quished those legal arguments had they
met with the commissioner to defend
themselves through the NFL's regular dis-
Vilma, who was suspended for the en-
tire 2012 season, has already filed two
separate lawsuits in the matter in federal
court in New Orleans. One is a defama-
tion lawsuit against Goodell himself. The
other, which named the NFL as a defen-.
dant, asks for a temporary injunction that
would allow Vilma to continue working
while other related legal matters play out.
The NFL Players Association also hint-
ed at legal action on Tuesday, saying in a
written statement that it "will continue to
pursue all options."
"The players are disappointed with the
league's conduct during this process," the
union's statement said. "We reiterate our
concerns about the lack of fair due pro-
cess, lack of integrity of the investigation
and lack of the jurisdictional authority
to impose discipline under the collective

tions during this process that rendered
it impossible for him to be an impartial

mittee, said he, was not

Fujita has challenged Goodell's
authority to hear player
appeals before two system arbitrators,
who both ruled in favor of Goodell, citing
language in the league's labor agreement
that gives the commissioner that author-
ity. Now the union must try to convince a
federal judge otherwise.
The NFL has said more than 20 cur-
rent or former Saints players participated
in the bounty program, but that Vilma,
Smith and Fujita were punished because
they were defensive leaders who contrib-
uted large amounts to a pool that paid for
big plays as well as injury-causing hits.

"We're pretty deep with
our pitching," the coach
said. "I think our success in
the tournament will defi-
nitely be based on what
kind of success we have on
the mound. That will de-
termine how far we'll go in
this tournament. We've got
a good group of boys who
are hitting the ball well,
but we've got a backbone
of good pitching."
The coach said he knows
there will be a rise in
the level of competition
_for his team from the
district tournament, but
everything he has seen
from this group thus far
makes him believe it can
compete at state.
"We're feeling really con-
fident. It's a good group of
boys with a good attitude.
They're ready to play," Ban-
nerman said. "We're hitting
the ball well right now, so
we hope we can take that
with us. All the boys did
a great job of putting it in
play (in the district tourna-
ment) and had a good on-
base percentage as well, so
we feel good about that.
"It's just a well-rounded
team. They all support
each other. I feel like once
they get down there and
start playing as a team, it
will be a normal routine

Free agent Allen to visit Heat on Thursday
The Associated Press
MIAMI The NBA champion Mi-
ami Heat will get to make their sales
pitch to Ray Allen.
A person familiar with Allen's plans
told The Associated Press that the
free-agent shooting glard will visit
with Heat officials Thursday. Allen
also is scheduled to visit Friday with
the Los Angeles Clippers, according
to the person who spoke on condi-
tion of anonymity because the plans
were not announced.
Allen is one of Miami's top offsea-
son targets, so much so that even
NBA MVP Letron James tweeted last
week that he hopes to play alongside.
him next season. For that to happen,
Allen would have to take less money
than he almost certainly could make
Miami can offer Allen only the
mini mid-level exception worth just
more than $3 million for next sea-
son, or roughly half what the iBoston
Celtics are willing to pay to keep the
NBAs leading 3-point shooter. Still,
Allen's willingness to even listen to
Heat President Pat Riley suggests
.. .. .... . ...... .. ...
that Miami's financial limits may not
be a deterrent to a deal.
NBA.com first reported Al-
len's' planned 'visits Tuesday
The Heat made just under 36 per-
cent of their 3-point attempts this
season. Mike Miller (.453) and James
Jones (.404) led the.Heat in accuracy
from beyond the arc, though Miller
is sorting out what he will do next
season as he deals with back and
Allen would figure to be a perfect
.fit with Miami because the Heat
want to surround James, Dwyane
Wade and Chris Boshwith shooters
who extend defenses and therefore
create room around the basket for
the "Big Three" to attack. That ap-
proach worked perfectly for Miami'
in the playoffs the Heat were 9-1
when making at least eight 3-point-
ers in playoff games (7-6 otherwise),
and they hit 14 in the finals-clincher.
over Oklahoma City.
Allen has made at least 100 3-
pointers in 15 of his 16 seasons, the
lone exception beifig when he con-
nected on 74 in the shortened 50-.
game schedule of 1998-99. He's es-
tablished career-bests for accuracy
in each of the past two seasons, first
making 44 percent of his 3's in 2010-
11, then 45 percent this past year. His
2,718 career 3-pointers are the most
in NBA history.
This round of free agency has a
much quieter feel for Miami than
the summer of 2010. For example,
Heat owner Micky Arisen tweeted
Sunday that he was beginning a trip
to Europe a far different trek from
what he, Riley, coach Erik Spoel-
stra and others embarked on two
years ago when they began woo-
ing James and Bosh to join Wade in
The selling point that summer was
sacrifice'e" and that hasn't changed.
James, Bosh and Wade all took less
money than they could have made
elsewhere to allow deals to fall into
place for Miami in 2010. Last sum-
mer, Shane Battier accepted a deal
worth $3 million annually..
That's about all Miami can offer
anyone this summer as well. Barring
any trades, the biggest chip Riley has
to dangle is the mini mid-level.

Arbitrator rules for Brees in franchise tag matter
The Associated Press
NEW ORLEANS An arbitra-
tor in Philadelphia has ruted in
brew. Brees' favor in a dispute
over how much the Saints would
, have to pay him if they applied
Sthe franchise tag to the star quar-
terback again in 2013.
SThe ruling adds. leverage to
SBrees, who has so far skipped the
Saints' offseason practices while
holding out for a new long-term
Contract with New Orleans.
SThe Saints have: already used'
,the tag on Brees for 20,12, mean-
ing he can't negotiate with an-
other team and, could be forced
to settle for a;qone-year, $16.3
million deal if he cannot reach
a new long-term deal by a July
16 deadline specified in the
league's collective bargaining
Arbitrator Stephen Burbank's
ruling Tuesday said if New Or-
leans tries to, tag Brees a sec-
6oid year in a row, he would be
entitled to a 44 percent raise to
more than $23 million because
it would be his third-career fran-
chise tag. The NFL had argued'
Brees would be due a 20 percent
raise because it would have been
only his second franchise tag
with one team.
Burbank, however, ruled that
while the NFL's CBA has some
ambiguity on the matter, it is'
clear that the overarching pur-
pose of the language regarding
multiple franchise tags is meant
to protect players from being
denied their rights to free agen-
cy for an undue length of their
New Orleans designated Brees,
33, its franchise player in March
after the club was unable to reach
a new long-term extension with
the record-setting quarterback
before his previous six-year, $60
million contract expired.
During the past six seasons,
Brees has not only led the Saints
to their only Super Bowl title,
but has completed more passes
(2,488) for more yards (28,394)
and more touchdowns (201)
than any other quarterback in
the NFL. His 67.8 percent com-
pletion rate spanning the past
six seasons also tops the league.
In 2011, Brees set NFL single-
season records with 468 comple-
tions, 5,476 yards passing and a
completion percentage of 71.2.
His prolific passing numbers
helped the Saints set a new NFL
high for total offensive yards in a
season with 7,474.
He led the Saints to a 13-3 reg-
ular season record and second
NFC South Division title in three
seasons. New Orleans defeated
Detroit in the first round of the
playoffs before falling in the final
seconds of their second-round
game at San Francisco.
This offseason marks the first
time Brees has 1had the opportu-
nity to negotiate a major, long-
term deal with the leverage pro-
vided by a string of injury-free
seasons highlighted by a slew
of individual and team statis-
tical records, in addition to a
He commanded only second-
round money when' he was
drafted by San Diego, and the
Chargers placed the one-year
franchise tag on him when that
deal ran out in 2005. The right-
handed Brees then had an in-
jury the following season that
required major surgery to his
throwing shoulder, and which
left him with few major offers
during the 2006 offseason.
He wound up signing the six-
year deal in New Orleans that
left him.playing for well below
what the top quarterbacks in the
league earned during the past
Brees is now expecting to be
paid in the range of the league's
best quarterbacks, and Peytori
Manning, who is three years
older than Brees and sat out last
season while recovering from
neck surgery, recently signed
a contract with Denver paying
him $19.2 million a year.

Dear Readers: Happy Fourth of July!
While you are enjoying the outdoor
barbecue, here's a little history to go with
The United States has a Great Seal that
is used to authenticate certain docu-
ments issued by the federal government.
The Great Seal has a picture of a bald
eagle with its wings outstretched, hold-
ing a bundle of 13 arrows in one'talon
and an olive branch in the other. The
arrows refer to the 13 original states, and
the olive branch symbolizes a desire for
peace. The olive branch is usually de-
picted with 13 leaves and 13 olives, going
back to the original states.
In its beak, the eagle has a scroll with
the motto "E pluribus unum," which
means "out of many, one." Over its head
is a blue field (called a "glory") with 13
stars. In front of the eagle is a shield with
a blue top (called a "chief") and red and
white stripes.(called "pales"). The stripes
To be successful on defense at the bridge
table, you have to be selfish, to analyze. Then,
though, be unselfish by thinking about partner.
Stay in touch with his problems and try to help
him. In this example, South is in four spades.
West leads the heart ace. How should East
analyze the deal, and what should he do?
South's two-spade rebid shows a minimum W
opening, 12 to.14 points, and at least a six-card 4
From the dummy, it should be obvious to
West that his side needs to take four red-suit
tricks. East will think similarly, except that his
partner might have a trump trick.
Then East needs to help his partner by drop-
ping the heart queen at trick one. This shows
the queen and the jack. (It cannot be a single-
ton queen, because then South would have
six hearts and would have rebid two hearts.) It
suggests to West that he might like to underlead
his heart king at trick two. Perhaps East can do
something from his side of the table attack
diamonds successfully that West cannot do
As you can see, this is the only way to defeat I
The rule is that when you cannot win the trick
because either someone has already played a
higher card in the suit led than your best or you
are discarding, play the top of touching honors
(if you can afford to do so, of course).-
represent the states joined together, sup-
porting a chief, which unites the whole
and represents Congress. The reverse
side of the Great Seal has the familiar
SThe Great Seal was first used publicly
in 1782. The front of the Great Seal is also
our national coat of arms and is used
on U.S. passports, military insignia, etc.
Since 1935, both sides of the Great Seal
have appeared on our $1 bill, although
not in color.
While the colors of the American flag
do not have specific meanings, the colors
of the Great Seal do.
Charles Thomson, secretary of the
Continental Congress, stated that the
white signifies purity and innocence. The
red stands for hardiness and valor. Blue,
which'is the color of the chief, signifies
vigilance, perseverance and justice. We
hope you've learned something today.
We certainly did.

Serena tops defending champ Kvitova
The Associated Press
WIMBLEDON, England Ser-
ena Wiliams reached her eighth
Wimbledon semifinal by knock-
ing out defending champion Pe-
tra Kvitova in straight sets with
another commanding serving
performance on Tuesday.
Playing underneath the closed
roof on Centre Court while rain
halted play elsewhere at the All
England Club, Williams hit 13
aces including three in the
last game to beat the fourth-
seeded Czech 6-3, 7-5.
Kvitova was on an 11-match
winning streak at Wimbledon
and had not lost here since Wil-
liams, beat her in the 2010 semi-
finals en route to her fourth title.
"She's been playing -so well
on grass," Williams said. "I had
absolutely nothing to lose."
TheAmerican four-time cham-
pion seized control by breaking
Kvitova for a 4-2 lead in the first
set and then never gave her.op-
ponent a chance to get back in
the match. She saved a set point
when trailing 5-4, in the sec-
ond with a hard serve.down the
middle that Kvitova couldreturn
only into the net. That was the
only break point the defending
champion earned, as Williams
won 86. percent of the points on
her first serve.
Kvitova then led 30-0 in the.
next game but made four straight
mistakes including netting an
.easy forehand on break point
- to give Williams the opening
she needed. ,

lova won Wimbledon in 1990.
Outside Centre Court, it was a
start-and-stop day at Wimble-
don, as showers continued to
cause headaches for organizers.
Play was delayed for about 30
minutes' on the outside courts
in the-morning,, although Andy
Murray and Florian Mayer found
enough time between the show-
ers to wrap up suspended match-
es and reach the quarterfinals.
.David Ferrer also advanced in
the first match on Centre Court,
where organizers again came
under scrutiny for their use of
the retractable rdof. Their deci-
sion to open and then close it
caused the start of Ferrer's match
against Juan Martin del POtro to
be delayed by about 40 minutes.
Murray made the last eight for
the fifth straight year by beating
the 16th-seeded Marin Cilic 7-
5, 6-2, 6-3, while Mayer ousted
Richard Gasquet of France 6-3,
6-1, 3-6, 6-2. American quali-
fier Brian Baker's remarkable
run ended with a 6-1, 7-6 (4),
6-3 loss to 27th-seeded Philipp
Kohlschreiber of Germany.
Rain had prevented five of the-
men's fourth-round matches
from being completed on Mon-
day. The weather continued to
cause headaches as the start
of play on outside courts was
delayed for about 30 minutes
because of light showers. When
matches started, they were
quickly halted again for another
rain delay of about an hour.
"We stopped, obviously, a lot,"
Murray said. "You're always a lit-
tle bit edgy when you come out
after a rain delay when you have
the momentum with you. You
stop, and then you come back
out, and it feels a bit like you
start from scratch again. I need-

had time to play one point on
Court 1 clinching that game
before rain started falling
again. One game later, the match
