Malone mom wants to start youth club
Representatives from Boys and Girls Club of America will be in town Thursday night
BY DEBORAH BUCKHALTER
Malone resident Mary Wil-
burn is hoping her Town Hall
will be overflowing with parents
and' grandparents this Thurs-
day night, a crowd big enough
to convince the Boys and Girls
Club of America to take the town
under its wing to help establish a
She's hosting a 4 p.m. meeting
in city call, with representatives
of the BGCA coming in from At-
lanta to gauge local interest in
the project and to provide details
about what's involved in starting
or participating in a club.
Wilburn has two daughters,
one 17 and the other 11 years of
age. She said she's seen the need
for a youth program in her town
ever since her oldest one started
"This has been a vision of mine
since she started kindergarten,"
Wilburn said. "The biggest thing
I wanted, ,at first, was a sum-
mer program. So many kids are
sitting with nothing positive
to do, and I want them to stay
stimulated, develop some self-
discipline and be learning all the
time so that they're ready to go
when. school starts back."
She has come to. believe that
an after-school program is also
vital to the well-being of area
S"They need some after-school
help with homework, and some
backup to what they're. being
taught in school," she said. "They
can learn study tips and things
that can help them have suc-
cess on (standardized) tests. It's
something that can keep them
off the streets after school, too.
They could learn how to develop
a personal budget and keep to it,
how to write checks and balance

Farmers Market having record season

Vicky Bruner gives Kaelynn McClain some customer service pointers
at the Marianna City Farmers Market Tuesday morning.
It has been a plentiful harvest this season
for local producers who sell their fruits, veg-
etables and added-value products three days
a week at the Marianna City Farmers Market,
and the vendors expect to have a Saturdays-
only fall season after their summer run ends
in late August.
With the 'weather particularly cooperative
during the growing season, fields started
yielding their bounty earlier than usual: Buy-
ers flocked to the heanily-laden tables as the
season started, and the traffic hasn't let up.
Organrizety call this "a year for the record
books," with the highest-ever number of ven-
dors participating and their collective sales
higher, than ever before.
so sfar, Jackson County Growers Associati6n
Sl member Paul Smith talked about the season.
S-' "Our numbers are better than ever. I have
'; been involved in the Market for 20-plits years,
and have never seen it any better."
In the release, organizers talked about one
particular new vendor who is taking full ad-
vantage of the new Cottage :Food Laws of
Florida. They allow sellers of certain products<
to make 'their items at home and bring them
straight to market, rather than having them
inspected as commercial kitchens must..Sha-
ronArnett, ofArnett Acres, grows peppers and
sells them at thle market. If a pepper doesn't
sell onthe first day it goes on the sales table,
sheUses it to make hot pepper jelly or vinegar
and also offers dehydrated peppers.
"It really makes our product availability go a
lot longer," she said in the release. "I don't lose
them, and my profits are better. I have less
product waste. We still have to follow good
food handling practices, but this (law change)
really helps all the producers at the market
sell their, fruits and things they may not have

T he massacre at Century 16 theaters in Aurora,
Colo., was an unspeakable act of violence and
When senseless violence like this strikes down so
many lives, Americans will grasp for the words to
describe how they feel about it.
And during these dark times, some people stunned by
the murders will lash out. They will demand "solutions,"
usually in the form of new gun-control laws. They will
say the nation must enact measures to prevent future
Others will argue with equal vehemence against any
changes to the nation's gun laws.
'But the people should not rush to embrace quick and
easy answers. First, the nation must mourn. Then the
authorities must sift through thefacts of the case and
try to understand why the accused gunman, James
Eagan Holmes, only 24 years.old, allegedly committed
such heinous acts of murder and mayhem.
Police say Holmes was responsible for the horrific
slaughter at the Friday morning show the midnight
premiere of "The Dark Knight Rises." Twelve people
were)killed and 58 wounded. He,used a number of guns
and even canisters of gas to cause panic at the midnight
screening, according to police.1i
On Monday, Holmes made his first court appearance.
The Associated Press reports'he is not cooperating with
authorities, so it could take months to figure out the
how and.why of the tragedy.
Yet there are already some who believe this could be a
defining moment in the nation's ongoing debate about
Second Amendment rights. From U.S. Sen, Dianne
Feinstein, D-Calif., on the left, to William Kristol on the
right, toNew York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg in the
center, there have been calls for "reasonable"
restrictions on the ownership of handguns and rifles.
Some on the right, including U.S. Sen. John McCain,
R-Ariz., have responded with skepticism.
It is understandable that gun rights are now being
debated. Following a massacre like the one in Colorado,
our political leaders should examine and debate
policies regulating the sale .of guns and ammunition.
But officials must hot let emotion become a threat'
to the foundations of the Second Amendment. Second
Amendment supporters will argute, with great merit,
that millions of Americans are responsible gun owners
and shouldn't pay a price for the terrible incident in
We have seen such senseless killings before. In Tucson
in January 2011, young loner Jared Lee Loughner shot
18 people, killing six. The shooting victims included
U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, D-Ariz., who barely
. survived her injuries.
Loughner displayed symptoms of mental illness
before and after the shooting, and the same kinds of
problems may afflict Holmes. The nation should work
harder to prevent people plagued by mental illness,
from hurting themselves or others. Guns weapolis of
any kind in the hands of the dangerously mentally ill
can lead to tragedy.
Fortunately, such incidents are rare. But public of-
ficials should take all reasonable steps to prevent the
mentally ill from causing harm.
There is strong public support for private ownership
of handguns and rifles, rights guaranteed by the Second
Amendment, and those rights are likely to remain
intact. Indeed, support for gun rights has grown in the
last decade, even after the 1999 incident at Columbine'
High School in Colorado, which left 15 dead.
In the coming months, there will be time to debate
gun policy, violence in the popular culture and the very
important issue of mental health treatment. '
But for now, let's mourn the loss of 12 Americans
gunnedidown while enjoying the all-American activity
of watching a movie. It will take time to gain a clearer
understanding of this senseless horror.

Mystique shrouded the

That is one of the many lessons of

Paterno worked for people who

quite the same.
Both presidents and attorneys
general hated or feared Hoover, but
his secret files-- and his willing-
ness to share gossip made him
untouchable. He was known as a
petty tyrant who couldn't change
with the times. He hired only white,
male agents until quite late in life.
He denied that organized crime
existed and claimed the civil rights
movement was full of communists.
After his death, we learned of illegal
break-ins and wiretaps, agents
slipping unverified data to news-
paper columnists or witch-hunt-
ing members of Congress, and his
habit of firing or transferring agents
who brought him facts not fitting
his world view.
And he cultivated a popular
image in the national media, with
breathless news accounts of G-men
nailing Dillinger and Soviet spies.
There was even a James Stewart
movie and a TV series called "The
FBI in Peace and War."
Of course, Paterno never did
that. He didn't have to the TV

After they quit, Paterno allowed
that, well, maybe he probably .
would decide to retire pretty soon,
anyway. By then, the board had to
say, "No, Joe now."-

Letter to the Editor
Setting the record straight
Your reporter is in error concern-
ing the contentious exchange at
the Concerned American Patriots
meeting Iheld last Tuesday). The
moderator (I) asked for a show of
hands of those who would support
Sen. Rubio or Gov. Jindal for Vice
president (not president, as the
story stated). I then read the consti-
tutional requirement for President
and Vice President. Both must be
natural born citizens., (Article 2 and
the 12th amendment) I asserted
that neither one was a natural born
citizen. And that is the truth.
Both the Constitution and Su-
preme Court cases define a natural
born citizen as one born in the
country of citizen parents. (plural)
The Law of Nations referenced in
Article 1 of the Constitution states:
"The natives, or natural born citi-
zens, are those born in the country
of parents who are citizens;" The
Supreme Court stated such in
Minor v. Happersett, 88 U.S. 162
The Chief Justice of the Supreme
Court in that year, wrote the major-
ity opinion, in which he stated: The
Constitution does not in words say
who shall be natural born citizens.
Resort must be had elsewhere to
ascertain that. At common law,
with the nomenclature of which the
framers of the Constitution were
familiar, it was never doubted that
all children born in a country of
parents who were its citizens be-
came themselves, upon their birth,
citizens also. These were natives
or natural born citizens, as distin-
guished from aliens or foreigners.
Three other cases state the same
Sen. Rubio was born on May 28,
1971, in Miami. His parents did not
become citizens until Nov. 5, 1975,
four and one-half years after Marco
Rubio was born. So he was not
born of citizen parents and is there-
fore not a natural born citizen. He
is a citizen by birth, not a natural
Gov. Jindal was born on June 10,
1971, in Baton Rouge, La. However,
his father, Amar Jindal, a perma-
rnent legal resident of the United
States, did not become a U.S. citi-
zen until Dec. 4, 1986. His mother,
Raj Jindal, also a permanent legal
resident, became a naturalized U.S.
citizen on Sept. 21, 1976. So he is
not a natural born citizen since he
was not born of citizen parents.

NEW.ORLEANS The first deep-sea

BSEE staff including inspectors,
engineers and spill response experts
- planned to monitor the drill and
see firsthand how it is conducted,
The capping stack is similar to the
one BP used to stop the flow of oil
from its out-of-control well .in July
2010. That stack finally closed the well
after 85 days of leaking oil. The BP
spill, which caused more than 200 mil-
lion gallons of oil to leak out, exposed
the oil industry's inability to stop a
deep-sea spill quickly.
Tougher drilling rules passed after
the BP spill required oil companies
to prove they can control a blowout
similar to the April 20, 2010, incident
at the Macondo well where 11 workers
were killed in explosions that sank the
drilling rig Deepwater Horizon.
After the spill, several large oil com-
panies set up the Marine Well Contain-
ment Company to prove the industry
could control a deep-sea oil spill. It
was a condition the industry had to
meet before regulators would begin
re-issuing deep-water drilling permits.

workings of the brain.

grant, Holmes, 24, was in the first
year of a program at the Anschutz
Medical Campus dedicated to .neu-
roscience, studying such'topics as
how the brain works or malfunctions
or helping. develop drugs to treat
* epilepsy and pther disorders.
But it is not behavioral science or.
psychology, experts say.
David Eagleman, who\ runs the
Initiative on Neuroscienqe and the
Law at Baylor University, said some
neuroscientists are experts in men-
tal illnesses and aberrant behavior,
but others spend most of their time
studying molecular chemistry.
"It's really only a fraction of profes-
sors" who could identify a simmer-
ing mental disorder, Eagleman said.
"Many people in neuroscience are
not specialized in the issue of pick-
ing up mental illness ... There are,
plenty of people who just study mice
and cats and stuff like that."
Holmes is accused of methodically
stockpiling weapons and explosives
at work and at home that police say
he used to kill 12 people and wound
58 more at a movie theater Friday
in nearby Aurora. Police say he also
booby-trapped his apartment with
the intent to kill police officers.

specifically Holmes studied. But an
online syllabus listed him as making
a presentation in May during a class
called "Biological Basis of Psychiatric
and Neurological Disorders."

Shur said the graduate program is
"like a family" in which faculty care-

sume there were people in that pro-
gram who worked closely with him
and would have the expertise to as-
sess his behavior," said Mary Ellen
O'Toole, a former FBI profiler and
the author of the book "Dangerous
Instincts: How Gut Feelings Betray
"But being able to recognize con-
cerning, troubling behavior does not
mean you can prevent a mass homi-
cide," O'Toole said. "There are many
people at a university level who act
quirky and strange and don't go out
and commit mass murder."
Academics studying the human
.brain may not have the same ability
to size up threats as someone who
makes his living spending time with
people firing guns, O'Toole said.
Glenn Rotkovich, owner of a pri-
vate Colorado gun 'range outside
Denver, quickly concluded there was
something wrong with Holmes.
Holmes applied to join the range

Holmes spent there contributed to
the mystery surrounding his mo-

,,Holmes remained in solitary con-
finement Tuesday, in Arapahoe

bleary-eyed and disoriented in his
initial court appearance. He could
face the death penalty if convicted.

Kimbrough took a few
things to, remember the,
old house by as it was
being torn down.
One of the home's sand-
stone fireplace blocks now
stands in a place of honor
on Kimbrough's mantle.
One of his sons at the age
of 8 or 10 had carved a ru-
dimentary face into the
soft material using sticks
and other found "tools."
Kimbrough also kept a
few hand-hewn, heart-
pine beams from the
undercarriage of the old
house, the aged wood hard
,to, come by in these days
and practically guaranteed
to never rot. He plans to
have some' of those fash-
ioned into shallow bowls
or other art pieces that he
can put on display.
Looking back on the
lives his grandparents led
in that old house and the
land around it, Kimbrough
'said he appreciates it for a
number of reasons. .
"They were subsistence
farmers," he said. "Most
of the vegetables we ate at
those Sunday dinners was
something they grew, the
beef we ate was from cows
they raised. They didn't
farm for a living, but for
survival. My grandfather
actually was engaged in
,the fine art of spirit-mak-
ing, libations for the neigh-
bors, let's say,'for a good
portion of his life. That's
something that dawned on
me gradually growing up.
There were always bottles
of spirits around the place-
not for consumption, be-
cause he didn't drink; but
"I have to say I never
wanted the farm life. It
was a hard, poor way to
go. I knew,, from my ex-,
periences there, and theft
were chasing us away from
it, anyway. They wanted
us to get out and make a
better life away from \the,
struggles they had. But at'
the same time, I look on
those:times and I value the
self-sufficiency they had. I
think it's important to try
and preserve at least the
grounds around the home
and to pass that along to
the next generations.
"I actually lived out there
for three years, when I first
-moved to Jackson County
in 2003," Kimbrough said.
"I'm proud to have this
designation, because it's a
legacy my ancestors' and I
can leave them in memory
of the past and the people
they come from. I think
when I began to appreciate
it for its historic value was
when my parents moved
here in the early 1970s. I
don't know, you wake up
one day and suddenly that
stuff is treasure. It's living
history that gets back to
an earlier era that won't
be here again. The land is
personal contact with your
ancestors and the hand-
work that they did to make
a living and a life on their
Kimbrough said his love
of the land grew even more
after he became a parent
"Later on, I appreciated
for my children's sake the
freedom they had to run
around on the yards out
there, just as I had. My
children learned how to
drive a tractor and a truck
out here.My father taught
them on the same patches
of ground that he taught
me, and I've taught my
granddaughters how to
drive a car out there-
there are lots of trails and
lanes where you can run

eration, and I'm hoping

honor. Only about 15 have
been so-named, but Kim-

For Adam Scott, his only win came after the Open
The Associated Press
LYTHAM ST. ANNES, England This
year's British Open should be a proud
moment for Greg Norman.
Sure, it was painful to watch Adam Scott
throw away a four-shot lead with four
holes to play, to walk away from Royal
Lytham & St. Annes with a silver salver
as the runner-up instead of the silver
claret jug as the winner of his first major
What should be mandatory viewing,
however, is the hour that followed such a
Scott stood before a television camera
with such composure that it looked like
the interview had taken place a week af-
ter his meltdown, not just minutes after
the Australian signed a scorecard that
showed four bogeys on the last four holes
for a 75.
"It wasn't to be," he said. "That's golf,
Then, he was whisked away to the media
center and answered every question with'
clarity and honesty, and without excuses.
As he stepped outside, he met with four
Australian reporters one who was in
London for the Olympics and came over
to Lytham to see Australia's first major
champion in six years and .answered
many of the same questions. When it
was over, Scott reached out to shake their
hands without prompting.
'For Scott to be linked with Norman is to
be expected Scott said so himself. Nor-
man lost.far more majors than he won
through a combination of bad golf and
bad luck. To no one's surprise, it was.that
six-shot lead he squandered at the 1996
Masters that came up more than once on
But if comparisons are to be made, don't
stop with the last putt. ,
"Gregwas myherowheriIlwas akid, and
I thought he was a great role model,-how
he handled himself in victory and defeat,"
said Scott, who wept in front of theTV,as
a teenager when the Shark blew up at Au-
gusta National against Nick Faldo.
"He set a. good example for us," Scott
said. "It's tough. You don't want to sit here
and have to ... I can't justify anything that
I've done out there. I didi't finish the
tournament well today. -But next time ...
I'm sure there will be a next time, and I
can do abetter job of it."
Norman was headed this week, to the
Senior British:Open at Turnberry, where
he won his lone major of 1986 after being
the 54-hole leader in all four majors. That
became known as the "Saturday Slam,"

except that Norman was the one who
more often than not got slammed.
The only player to lose all four majors
in a playoff in stroke play. The Masters
-meltdown. Losing a four-shot lead in the
PGA Championship to Bob Tway, who
holed out a bunker shot on the 72nd hole
to beat him. Missing a 4-foot par putt in
a playoff to lose another PGA to Paul Az-
inger. Twice going into the final round at
Shinnecock Hills with his name atop the
U.S. Open leaderboard only to close.with
75 one time and 73 another.
The most famous, of course, is the Mas-
ters. No one has ever lost more than a
six-shot lead in a major except for Nor-
man-at Augusta National. He wound up
five shots-behind Faldo, who years later
revealed what he shared with the Shark as
they embraced on the 18th green.
"Don't let the (critics) get you down."
Ernie Els offered a. similar message to
Scott during a quiet moment they shared
before the trophy presentation.
"He said he felt for me and not tp beat
myself up," Scott said. "He said he beat
himself up a little bit'when he'd lost or
had a chance to win. And he felt I'm a
great player and I can go on to win ma-
jors, which is nice. We have a close friend-
ship. We've had some good battles in the
past, and it's nice to hear that from him. I
respect Ernie a lot, and he's a player who
is a worthy champion here for sure."
Scott thought so highly of Norman that
he tried to follow in his steps, starting his
career in Europe and wanting to be on
the roll call of champions at all the tour-
naments Norman won. When he turned
pro, the comparisons were with Tiger
Woods because of Scott's pure swing that
was honed while working with Butch Har-
mon. He even liriefly hired as a caddie the
brother of Steve Williams, who spent a
dozen years working for Woods.'
Being compared with Norman can
be twisted into a.joke. But few players
were better at:handling defeat than Nor-
man, perhaps because he had so much
Then again, Scott has carried himself
with dignity for his entire career. When he
was in a slump three years ago, missing
the seven cuts over eight tournaments, he
took the criticism in stride and answered
every question, even after he shot an 81.
Golf is filled with'gracious losers. That's
the nature of the sport. There was Mike
Reid at the, 1989 PGA Championship,
Phil Mickelson at five U.S. Opens, a Brit-
'ish Open and a PGA Championship. Who
could forget. Mickelson at Winged Foot
when he took double bogey on the 18th
hole of the final round to lose by one shot
and said, "I am such an idiot."
And, of course, there was Norman.

man said right after he threw away the

In your eagerness to start

Dear Annie: I am an attractive 30-some-
thing female who began experiencing
thinning hair in my late 20s due to a
thyroid disorder. Many women have the
confidence to accept their hair loss and
do nothing to hide it. I admire that. For
me, it contributes to embarrassment, low
self-esteem and a lack of confidence.
When I started wearing wigs several
years ago, I could only afford synthetics,
but found some affordable, realistic ones.
The problem? There have been a handful
of times when people namely co-
workers and guests at social gatherings
- have come right out and asked me, in
the company of others no less, whether I
wear a wig. Their tactlessness never fails
to stun me, and the only response I can
muster is, "Why do you ask?" The.most
.common response is, "It always looks too
More appalling is when people touch
or tug on my. hair without my permission
to "see if it's real." Sometimes people ask
where I get my hair done, which I know
is an attempt to find out whether I wear
a wig. I fear that one day someone will
pull it off.
East passed as dealer, South opened one
diamond, and West overcalled one heart. (Al-
though it would have worked well here, a
takeout double with a singleton club is not
recommended.) North bravely responded one
no'trump, despite his uncertain heart stopper, We
to tell partner that he had some values.
East passed again, not liking his singleton
heart. South might have passed, but retreated V
to two diamonds. After two passes, East, in the '
midst of the battle, should have bravely bid two *
spades. This ought to show both black suits be-
cause with only spades, he would have bid ear-
lier. Then presumably West would have taken
a shot at four spades, which would have made
with an overtrick. West led his singleton club,
an excellent choice. South took East's nine with
her ace and played a low trump.
If West had taken the trick, any major-suit
continuation would have worked. But when S
West won the second diamond, he erred by
cashing the heart ace and playing another 1
heart. Now South took two hearts, five dia- 2
mdnds and three clubs. Finally, an expert East
would have played high-low in diamonds to
show a spade card.
I don't like to lie, so I usually change
the subject or act distracted.1I have
perused hair loss forums on the Internet
for advice and have found that many
women are very open about it as a means
to educate others. I'm not like that. My
experience has been painful and per-
sonal. Other than my doctor, I never have
admitted to anyone that I wear a wig. It's
no one's business.
Why on earth are these people so fix-
ated on my hair? How do I respond to
these intrusive, thoughtless and insensi-
tive people without raising any fuss?'
-WIGGED OUT IN THE U.SA.
Dear Wigged Out What colossal nerve.
Even if your wig is mord obvious than
you think, it does not excuse such ter-
rible behavior. We know you don't want
to disclose your hair loss, but it might be
quite liberating and certainly would put
an end to the anxiety you are experienc-
ing over discovery. Until then, however,
feel free to respond to these idiots with
wide eyes and a shocked expression, say-
ing, "I'm sure you didn't intend to be so
rude." Then walk away

O'Brien says maii
to keep t
The Associated Press
Of the long list of problems now
facing Penn State coach Bill O'Brien,
the top priority sounds simple: keep-
ing the Nittany Lions intact. -
So he's stressing education and
the opportunity to play in front of
108,000 fans every fall Saturday as
part of his pitch to persuade players
to stay in Happy Valley.
It seems to be working so far.
O'Brien said in a conference call
with reporters Tuesday that no cur-
rent member of the team has indi-
cated they will transfer following the
NCAA sanctions imposed this week
on Penn State. The penalties allow
current players to transfer immedi-
ately without restrictions.
"Life is full of adversity. The way you
travel through life is how you handle
adversity," O'Brien said in relaying
what he told players during team
meetings the last two days. "I told the
guys to think about the guys they're
sitting next to in that room.
"We've got a, bunch of good kids
here who are good tough football
payers who tare about education,"
The NCAA imposed unprecedent-
ed penalties in response to the Jerry
Sandusky child sex abuse scandal.
The university's investigation found
that coach Joe Paterno and three
other school officials'concealed alle-
gations against Sandusky, the retired
defensive coordinator- conclusions
vehemently denied by Paterno's fam-
ily and the officials.
A reduction in scholarships and a
four-year postseason ban are among
the sanctions, so potentially -crip-
pling that some observers have sug-
gested they are worse, than the so-
called "death penalty" of shutting
down football entirely for at least a
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS FILE
This April 21 photo shows Penn State
head coach Bill O'Brien during a news
conference after the team's annual
Blue-White spring scrimmage in State
Not so, said O'Brien, who added it
was important for the fans and the
program that games would remain
"We are playing football. We are
opening our season on Sept. 1 before
108,000 strong against Ohio Univer-
sity," O'Brien said emphatically. "We
get to get better as football players,
and we get to do that for Penn State."
It has been a trying year for the Nit-
tany Lions even before the NCAA an-
nounced its sanctions. Players who
had nothing to do with the scandal
have been 'caught in the resulting
media firestorm since Sandusky was
arrested in November and Paterno
was fired days later.
O'Brien was hired in January after
serving as offensive coordinator of
the New England Patriots.
While he didn't offer' specific de-
tails, O'Brien said he has a plan to get
the program through its latest crisis.
His experience coachifig in the NFL,
where teams are limited to 53-man
rosters, might help in leading and
shaping Penn State's scholarship-re-
n goal is
"You're talking about having ex-
perience in how to put that roster
together, learning from the best in
(Patriots head coach) Bill Belichick.
How to practice," he said. "So there's
no question that my NFL experience
will certainly help."
As for concerns about not playing:
in the postseason for the next four
yeais,I O'Brien counters that Penn
State plays what equates to six or sev-
en bowl games each year with home
contests at massive Beaver Stadium,
the second-largest stadium in the
Recruiting could also become an
even bigger challenge, but O'Brien
said he felt "very good" about recruit-
ing. One high-profile high school
prospect, cornerback Ross Douglas,
has taken back his verbal pledge to
commit to Penn State in 2013. An-
other 2013 recruit, tight end Adam
Breneman, has said he's sticking with
The recruiting strategy might
change given the scholarship decline,
but the "philosophy I've brought here
does not change ... meaning that
we're looking for high-chafacter guys
that are good students. We're going to
find ways to.do that."
O'Brien is, 'also optimistic about
keeping his coaching staff together,
Ted Roof'and former NFL assistants
Stan Hixon and Charles London.
As for O'Brien himself, the head
coach left no doubt about his
"I made -a commitment to Penn
State. I believe in Penn State," he
said. "I feel very close to these kids
... they've been dealt with honestly,.
openly and again we've got a bunch
of guys here that want to .succeed
and do well on and off the field, and I
feel close to them."

had hoped to play for Brit-
ain's team at the games,
but he was not included in,
the squad by coach Stuart
Pearce. There will, howev-
er, be a spot for him Friday
at Olympic Stadium.
"It is some kind of role
in the opening ceremony,
which I am honored to be

viously I was involved in
the start process with this

told The Associated Press:

But in keeping with the
national "save the 'sur-
prise" campaign, Beckham
wouldn't divulge any fur-
ther details about his role.
One obvious role would
be to serve as one of the
final torchbearers to help
complete the 8,000-mile
relay around Britain in the
stadium, although it is ex-
pected a former Olympian

The Associated Press
PHILADELPHIA The Nashville Predators have
matched the staggering offering sheet made' by the
Philadelphia Flyers for defenseman SheaWeber.
The Predators made sure on Tuesday they will keep
their star defenseman when they decided to pay him
$110 million over 14 years. Weber, 26, is the Predators'
captain and played on a $7.5 million arbitrator's award,
last season. He had 19 goals and 49 points along the
Nashville already lost free-agent defenseman Ryan
Suter to Minnesota this summer, and losing Weber
would have been an unexpected. blow to a defense-
first team that had 104 points last season.
Weber hoped he would land in Philadelphia. Now, he
will likely end his career in Nasvhille.
