County landfill subject of NAACP research


Jackson County Com-
missiorers on Tu'esday
agreed unanimously to
write a letter of support as
the local NAACP attempts
to establish a process in
which locaP residents are
kept better informed ofi

what materials are going
into there Springhill Land-
fill near Campbellton, and
possibly prompt the es-
tablishment of some addi-
tional long-term monitor-
ing stations at the facility.
Such stations, the NAACP
says, could help ensure
that potential contamina-
tion is better-tracked In the

vicinity of the landfill.
The local NAACP Chapter
president, Rev. Ron Mizer,
and past-president Elmore
Bryant appeared before
the board and asked for the
letter Tuesday morning.
Mizer said the letter will
be sent to the owner of
the landfill. Waste Man-
agement, and to the BP

oil company.
BP is targeted at this time
because it used Springhill
as a disposal point for some
of the tar resulting from the
massive oil spill into Gulf
of Mexico two years ago.
Mizer said the NAACP feels
that long-term.monitoring
could ensure that the com-
munity will know if the tar

does create contamination
in the future.
"This is not a smoking
gun, this is not to say that
something is wrong, and
we know that precautions
were taken, but who's to
say that someday some-
thing might not occur,"
Mizer said. "Will it go for-
ever without anything

happening? We don't know.
There's no guarantee that
contamination won't make
its way into the soils. We
think monitoring stations
are necessary to keep a
watch on that question."
And it's not just about BP,
he said. The monitoring

New microwave can keep bread mold at bay

The Associated Press

LUBBOCK, Texas At-
tention, bread shoppers:
A Texas company could
have the answer to some
consumers' unwelcome
discovery that just-pur-
chased loaves contain
MicroZap Inc. claims its
technology allows bread
to stay mold-free for 60
*days. The bread is bom-
barded with microwaves
for about 10 seconds,
which kills the mold
spores, chief executive of-
ficer Don Stull said.
The process could elim-
inate bakers' need for
preservatives and ingre-
dients used to mask pre-
servatives' flavor, as well
as reduce food waste and
increase bread's shelf life,
he said.
Researchers at Texas
Tech University also see
using the technology in
bread made in devel-
oping countries, where
there are fewer food
safety standards and
spoilage is a problem.
"It could help us provide
an abundant food source
for those in need," said

Mindy Brashear, director
of the Lubbock universi-
ty's Center for Food In-
dustry Excellence.
The prospect of help-
ing people in developing
countries is what moti-
vated the microbiology
professor to help develop
the technology over the
last eight years.
After 60 days, research-
ers found the treated
bread that remained
packaged had the same
mold content when com-
pared to a freshly baked
loaf, Stull said. In the
end, though, he knows it
comes down to consum-
ers' palates.
"The consumers saw no
discernible quality differ-
ence in the breads," Stull
said of testers who found
the treated bread's taste
and texture unchanged.
An Associated Press
reporter found the same.
Though slightly warm
'from the microwaves,
a piece of whole-grain
white bread was soft and
tasted like one that hadn't
been zapped. Sixty-day-
old bread was not avail-
able to taste.
Estimates from the

Don Stull, chief executive officer of Microzap, Inc., places a loaf of bread inside a patented
microwave that kills mold spores in Lubbock, Texas. The company claims the technology
allows bread to stay mold-free for 60 days.

Natural Resources De-
fense Council this year
indicated that, in 2008,
in-store food losses in
the U.S. totaled an esti-
mated 43 billion pounds
- 10 percent of all foods
supplied to retail outlets
- most of which are per-
ishables, including bread.
Unrefrigerated bread

in plastic packaging will
succumb to mold in about
10 days, so keeping it at
bay for 60 days presents a
fresh proposition.
Not so fast, says Ruth
MacDonald, professor
and chair of food science
and human nutrition at
Iowa State University.
There are thousands of

airborne mold spores
everywhere, she said,
adding that though bread
producers might like the
technology for storage
and transportation, those
spores are problematic at
"Once you open (the
bag of bread), all bets are
off," she said.

Florida Voices

Legislature must act

to protect children

in group homes

P politicians like to blame government bureaucracy
for inaction. But inTallahassee, it looks like bu-
reaucrats are the only ones interested in protect-
ing children in Florida's unlicensed or lightly regulated
group homes.
Two months after a Tampa Bay Times investigation
revealed how gaping loopholes in the state's regulatory
structure had enabled unscrupulous operators to abuse
and neglect children for decades, the Department of
Children and Families is using what limited power
it has to try to shut down one of the most nefarious
operators and exert mote influence over others. But
legislative leaders so far have been silent on desperately
needed broader reforms. Lawmakers need to begin ex-
amining reform options to prepare for the session that
begins in March lest they send the message that Florida
doesn't care if children are abused.
As the Times' Alexandra Zayas reported, DCF officials
asked a circuit judge Friday to shut down an unlicensed
Port St. Lucle children's home that for years has been
allowed to operate despite evidence of abuse. DCF's 80-
page petition includes evidence of more than a dozen
incidents in which children were neglected, injured or
otherwise mistreated while in the care of AlanWeier-
man, who has proven himself a master at exploiting
the state's lax regulatory structure to skirt oversight.
Weierman's current school, Southeastern Military
Academy, is just the latest where his discipline practices
have come under scrutiny yet nothing has prohib-
ited him from taking in children.
Weierman is far from the only bad actor. A state
law passed nearly three decades ago at the behest of
religious interests has left Florida with a privatized and
porous regulatory system that does little to stop opera-
tors who repeatedly abuse children. Through dozens of
interviews with former students and in reviewing thou-
sands of pages of documents, Zayas documented that
in some group homes children have been beaten, ridi-
culed, held down by their fellow students and subject to
hours or days of isolation, among other indignities.
Prompted by Zayas' reporting, the Florida Association
of Christian Child Caring Agencies, the private agency
that accredits group homes that obtain a religious
exemption under the ill-advised 1984 state law, has
tightened some of its child protection standards. But
given the group's indifference and lax enforcement in
the past, no one should be convinced.
Only the Legislature has the authority to ensure
Florida does better in the future for children living in
religious group homes or boarding schools. Their care-
takers should have to meet the same expectations as
those running homes regulated by the state. Lawmak-
ers should return oversight of all group homes to DCF,
including giving the agency the authority to shut down
abusive operators. House Speaker Will Weatherford
and Senate President Don Gaetz need to stand for all
Florida's children.

This is your last New Year's list about news

Florida Voices
N newspaper columnists like to
fill the slow week between
holidays with pithy lists
of jocular NewYear's resolutions
they think celebrities, athletes and
politicians ought to make.
Well, at risk of pithing off my
friends who trot out this trope ev-
ery year, here's a list of resolutions
reporters should ponder as we
begin 2013. And we're not joking.
a First, there's probably no rule
of journalism better than, "Get it
first, but first, get it right." Last year,
we saw at least two TV networks
get the Supreme Court ruling on
national health care wrong. Then,
ABC's respected Brian Ross linked
the leader of a local Tea Party fac-
tion to the Aurora, Colo., theater
shootings. Finally, police misiden-
tified the shooter in Newtown,
Conn., and the networks went with
it. So did print reporters, but they
had the luxury of more time.
All were quickly corrected, but
wouldn't it be better if reporters
resolve to tell readers and viewers
that we've got this information, and
we're going to take a little while to
verify it? Justice delayed is justice
denied, but journalism delayed is
often improved and a wait of 10
minutes or an hour does not harm
the public's right to know. '
Maybe every editor and news
director should resolve to hang in
the newsroom that big picture of
Harry Truman grinning beneath
the "Dewey Defeats Truman" front
page of the Chicago Daily Tribune.
SSecond, let's leave the kids out
of it. We recently learned that the
Duchess of Cambridge is preggers,
as the Brits would say, and so is
that other real classy lady, Khloe
Wouldn't it be nice if the media
resolved not to get in a bidding war
for "exclusive" first photos,.when
the babies arrive? If some PR flack
calls to offer a one-on-one chat
with Aunt Pippa, wouldn't it be nice
if an editor replied, "Why? Does she
have something to say?"
All right, the adults hire press

agents and seek publicity, but the
children didn't ask for this. In 25
years, People magazine and the
online sites will write about how
those kids had it all but messed up
their lives never thinking that
the press, itself, made them grow
up weird.
Enough. Does anyone need to
know more about Michael Jackson's
children or Suri Cruise?
a And let's resolve to give the
already messed-up grown-up ce-
lebrities a little room to heal, if they
want to. Would you mind not hear-
ing Lindsay Lohan's name for about
three years then maybe find it in
a "where are they now" piece that
says she's happily settled down and
has a family, working at some mid-
level production job in theater?
Or that a post-middle-aged Char-
lie Sheen is making a comeback,
starring in commercials for reverse
mortgages or one of those joint-re-
pair or memory-aid drugs?
a Let's resolve to have a serious
discussion about race in America.
The Supreme Court has two big
cases on affirmative action and the
1965 Voting Rights Act. Whether'
they're both upheld, both reversed
or go separate ways, they will affect
our country.
President Clinton tried to have
a national dialog on race, but,
for reasons you fondly recall, the
nation decided it would be more
fun to spend 1998 laughing at him.
When the Supreme Court rules,
let's not just have Al Sharpton and
Ann Coulter make startling ac-
cusations in punchy sound bites.
And let's not be timid or politically
correct in addressing what's gone
wrong and what's improved over
the last 50 years.
) Resolved: no more sideline
interviews in sports coverage. The
combined investigative teams of
the Washington Post, NewYork
Times and 60 Minutes couldn't
squeeze a nugget of real news out
of a coach trotting off the field. If
the sponsors demand three or four
oh-wow-giggle-fests per game, let's
just admit it's a sexist diversion.
Many women sportswriters know

their stuff but, on TV, the play-by-
play guy and his ex-jock sidekick
up in the broadcast booth should
just admit, "We're gonna toss it
down to the sidelines now, where
Taffy will smile a lot, look upward
and laugh, and speak admiringly to
a very large middle-aged man, the
kind of guy most of you guys vicari-
ously identify with."
Either that, or hire reporters who
aren't young and pretty.
a 2013 is the year of implement-
ing national health care, with
many political and economic
facets to the story. Let's resolve not
just to put two opposing senators
or lobbyists in a story and call it
both sides. The voters deserve a
calm, disinterested discussion of
the costs, benefits and, most of all,
what it's going to mean for them.
We already know who hates it arit
who loves it. A good verbal brawl
fills time and space, but let's resolve
to impart needed information
along the way.
a Ditto the fiscal cliff. Once Con-
gress reaches a deal on spending
cuts and tax hikes, it runs right
into another debt-ceiling debate.
All media should resolve to tell
readers and viewers both the
politics and the financial impact,
of what's going on. We don't need
Sen. Chuck Shumer, D-NY,.say-
ing Republicans want to snatch
Medicare away from old people to
protect billionaires from relatively
small tax increases, or Sen. Mitch
McConnell, R-Ky., warning that
the Democrats would saddle our
grandchildren with unconscio-
nable debt in order to mollify their
base voters with a bloated welfare
state. Both statements are true,
but they add nothing to out
Finally, let's resolve not to do
any more year-end lists of hilarious
Christmas gifts that Santa ought
to bring various famous folks, or
NewYear's resolutions they ought
to make.

Letters to the Editor

Thomas family thanks
community for generosity

On Dec. 17, 2012, my family and I
experienced the horror.of watching
our home being destroyed by fire.
Luckily, we escaped unharmed. But
we lost everything, including an
8-week-old Chihuahua puppy that
my grandson loved.
We lost pictures of loved ones
who have passed away. We lost all
of our clothes, the kids' toys, even
their school books and backpacks.
My wife and I lost our medicine,
even our insulin we need to control
our diabetes.
I lost all my University of Georgia
t-shirts, caps and books, and a cap
signed by Mark Richt, UGA football
I want to thank everyone who
helped us during this time; The
American Red Cross, who gave us
a place to stay; Kelson Drugs, who
replaced our medicine and took up '
donations for us; and Love'sTravel
Center, who gave us food and also
took up money for us.
The Jackson County School Board

replaced my grandchildren's books,
book bags and school supplies. And
their classroom teachers bought
the kids clothes out of their own
Save-A-Lot in Chipley gave us gift
cards and Rent-A-Center in Mari-
anna gave us a set of bunk beds for
my grandsons.
We also want to thank Joy Bradley
at Florida Commerce for clothes,
diapers, a car seat and other things.
Trinity Baptist Church gave us
money, as did Ascension Lutheran
The manager of the laundry on
Highway 71 washed the clothes that
we could salvage for free.
We have had people as far north
as Michigan and as far south as Ft.
Myers help us. A number of people
we don't even know have helped
us: gave us clothes, furniture and
money. To those people, we thank
you from the bottom of our hearts.
We never knew how much a small
community would help, until we
were the ones needing the help.
And to every single person that
has helped us out in one way or
the other, we gratefully appreciate

everything you have done. We also
appreciate all the thoughts and
Since the fire we have found a
home. We are very close to being
settled. The kids seem to be getting
better. They still talk about the fire,
and still have bad dreams about
it, but for the most part, they are
adjusting well.
So many people have helped
us out, so if we left your name or
business out, we are truly sorry. We
didn't do it intentionally; we just
don't remember everyone's name.
This fire has shown us that what
you have worked for and gained
over 15 years can be all gone in a
very quick five minutes. We still
have some stuff that was donated
to us that we can't use and we are
going to donate it to Red Cross or
to the other family that lost their
home a few days after we lost ours.
Again, we want to thank everyone
for their kindness and generosity in
our time of need.

Students return after
garage collapse
Florida community col-
lege .campus has reopened
three months after a park-
ing garage collapsed and
killed four workers.
Miami Dade College
students returned to the
West campus on Tuesday
for the start of spring
The five-story parking
garage collapsed Oct.10.
Since then, MDC spokes-
man Juan Mendieta
says the 8,000 students
enrolled at the Doral cam-
pus have been attending
classes at other locations.
The new garage had
been slated to open in De-
cember. For now, students
will once again use offsite
parking at a nearby mall
and shuttle buses.
The cause of the collapse
remains unknown. Once
it's determined, college
administrators will decide
whether to salvage the
structure or to demolish it
and start over. The project
was originally supposed to
cost just over $20 million.

Panel hears Anthony's appeal

Florida appellate court is

3rd inmate says woman

admitted killing girl

The Associated Press

MIAMI A fellow in-
mate testified Tuesday
that the former caretaker
of a foster child who dis-
appeared more than a
decade ago tearfully ad-
mitted to killing the girl
when the two shared a
cell one night. Two other
inmates also have testi-
fied that the caretaker
Ramona Tavia, a 41-
year-old serving life for a
1994 robbery and murder,
said-she befriended Gera-
lyn Graham in a woman's
jail annex in downtown
Miami and was briefly
moved into Graham's cell
in November 2003. Tavia
said Graham seemed up-
set after a phone call and
was crying when correc-
tions officers led her into
the cell.
Graham, Tavia said, kept
repeating that "she killed
the baby" to protect her
former live-in lover, Pa-
mela Graham.
"She said she had to pro-
tect Pam. Pam is sick and
weak," Tavia testified.
Graham, 66, faces life
in prison if convicted of
murder, kidnapping and
child abuse charges in the
disappearance of 4-year-
old Rilya Wilson, whose
body has never been
Rilya was not discov-
ered to be missing from

killed, leading to changes

remains, eyewitnesses to
a slaying or any forensic
evidence. Pamela Graham
testified earlier that she
does not know what hap-
pened to Rilya.
The state's case rests
heavily on the testimony
of jailhouse snitches Ta-
via, Robin Lunceford and
Maggie Carr. Tavia said
Graham initially told her
that a state child welfare
worker had taken Rilya
- in this telling, a white
man rather than the blcck
woman she described
to many others and
had never returned the
Lunceford was the star
witness, telling jurors that,
Graham said she smoth-
ered Rilya with a pillow
because the child was evil
and then disposed of the
body in or near water. Carr
also testified that Graham
made reference to the re-
mains being near water
and that they would never
be found.
Tavia said Graham's con-
fession upset her.
"I feel like the lady lied
to me," she said. She said
it wasn't until Tavia saw

a March 2005 television
news account of the case,
including a photo of Lunc-
eford, that she told detec-
tives what Graham had
said that night. Initially,
she said, she didn't intend
to come forward but "as a
mother" finally felt com-
pelled to do so.

Two baby jaguar cubs- an endangered species were born at the Milwaukee County Zoo In November.

Jaguar cubs born at Milwaukee

zoo provide new genes to species

The Associated Press

MILWAUKEE Two jaguar cubs
are providing more than just cooing
fans for Milwaukee's zoo. The spot-.
ted brothers are introducing new
genes to the endangered species'
captive population because unlike
most' zoo babies, their father was
born in the wild.
The blue-eyed cubs, born Nov. 13,
don't officially have names just yet,
lGut keepers at the Milwaukee Coun-
ty Zoo are calling them "Gaps" and
"Dots," due to the markings on their
Stacey Johnson, coordinator of the
jaguar species survival plan for the
American Zoo and Aquarium Asso-
ciation, said it is rare for zoos' repro-
ductive programs to have access to
animals born in the wild.
"They are bringing in a .new
inflow of genes that will help sustain
the population over next 100 years,"
Johnson said.
He also noted that the cubs the
first born at the zoo since 1975 are
also beneficial because female jag-
uars currently outnumber males in
zoos in North America.
The cubs, currently about the size

of house cats, are still too small to
navigate their multi-level exhibit, so
they aren't yet on display. But fans
can catch glimpses of the curious
cubs and their mother on the zoo's
live webcam.
Zoo officials plan to put the cubs
on display by early February.
Their father, Pat, was captured in
Central America after being deemed
a problem jaguar for attacking cattle,
so he was a bit of a celebrity at the
Belize Zoo before coming to Milwau-
kee in 2008.
The estimated 15-year-old animal
also has a book named after him,
"Pat the Great Cat: A Jaguars Jour-
ney," which was written by children
in Milwaukee and Belize as part of

,1 coordinator of the
jaguar species
survival plan for
the American Zoo
and Aquarium
Association, said
the cubs' birth is
a big deal because
their father was
born In the wild and
brings new genes
a literacy program.
The cubs were the first for their
mother, Stella.
The cubs will remain at the zoo for
about a year before being moved to
other zoos whose jaguars need ge-
netic diversity, zoo spokeswoman
Jennifer Diliberti said. Jaguars are
found in the wild in the southern
U.S., Mexico, Central America and
South America.
The webcam has received about
16.000 hits since it went live Dec. 18.
The average time spent on the we-
bcam is about 25 minutes com-
pared to 2 minutes on their home
page. Dilibertisaid.
"People are- really following their
story, which is wonderful," she said.

wild ride Tuesday that
carried him to the first
win of the PGA Tour
Despite hitting two
drives into native ar-
eas that cost him three
shots, Johnson never lost
the lead at Kapalua. He
closed with a 5-under
68 for a four-shot vic-
tory in the Tournament

was up for grabs with five
holes remaining.
Stricker came within a
fraction of an inch of tying
for the lead until his bird-
ie putt peeled away from
the cup on the 13th hole,
which Johnson chopped
up for a double bogey.
With only a one-shot
lead, Johnson pitched in
from 50 feet in front of
the 14th green to restore
his three-shot lead, and
Stricker never challenged
him after that.

NHL owners set to vote on new contract

The Associated Press

ers will vote Wednesday on
the tentative labor agree-
ment reached with the
players' union.
If a majority approves,
as expected, the NHL will
move one step closer to-
ward the official end of the
long lockout that began
Sept. 16.
As of Tuesday afternoon,
a memorandum of under-
standing of the deal hadn't
been completed, so the
union has yet to schedule
a vote for its more than 700
members. A majority of
players also must approve
the deal for hockey to
return to the ice.
"We continue to docu-
ment the agreement," NHL
deputy commissioner Bill
Daly told The Associated
Press in an email Tuesday.
If there are no snags, rati-
fication could be finished
by Saturday and training
camps can open Sunday
if approval is reached on
both sides. A 48-game reg-
ular season would then be

"(We) don't need a signed
document to complete
ratification process," Daly

wrote, "but we do need a
signed agreement to open
camps. The goal is to get
that done by Saturday so
that we can open camps

on Sunday."
The NHL has yet to re-
lease a new schedule. The
regular season was sup-
posed to begin on Oct. 11.

The deal was reached
Sunday on the 113th day of
the lockout and seemingly
saved the season that was
delayed for three months
and cut nearly in half. It
took a 16-hour final bar-
gaining session in a New
York hotel for the agree-
ment to 'finally be com-
pleted at about 5 a.m.
The lockout led to the
cancellation of at least 480
games. That brings the to-

games to a minimum 2,178

The damage is signifi-
cant. Perhaps $1 billion in

Hockey's first labor
dispute was an 11-day
strike in 1992 that led to
the postponement of 30
games. Bettman became
the commissioner in

February 1993. He presided
over a 103-day lockout in
1994-95 that ended with a
deal on Jan. 11, then a 301-
day lockout in 2004-05 that
made the NHL the only
major North American.

to lose an entire season.
The NHL obtained a salary
cap in the agreement that
followed that dispute and
now wanted more gains.
The NHL's revenue of
$3.3 billion last season
lagged well behind the
NFL, ($9 billion), Major
League Baseball ($7.5 bil-
lion) and the NBA ($5 bil-
lion), and the deal will
lower the hockey players'
percentage from 57 to 50

This was the third lock-

sports in a period of just
more than a year. A four-
month NFL lockout ended
in July 2011 with the loss of
only one exhibition game,
and an NBA lockout caused
each team's schedule to be
cut from 82 games to 66

It was almost like old
times for the NewYork Jets,

years ago.
"We are going to be a

Ryan warned Tuesday. "I

Sound familiar?
While there were no Su-
per Bowl guarantees this
time around, Ryan was
certainly back to his con-
fident, brash ways. During
a nearly 40-minute "sea-
son-ending" news confer-
ence that included lots of
spin and came nine days
after the Jets' 6-10 season
ended, both Johnson and
Ryan seemed excited for
the team's future.
Still, Ryan 'acknowl-
edged he was concerned
he might be fired after the
season because he "failed"
to leave his imprint on all
aspects of the team,, par-
ticularly on offense.
"I don't think I've done as
good a job of implement-

ing who I am throughout
this team," Ryan said. "I
want a physical, aggres-
sive, attack style."
Despite that admission
- which would have got-
ten most other coaches
fired and the fact the
Jets have failed to make
the playoffs in two straight
seasons, Johnson said get-
ting rid of Ryan was never
a scenario in his mind.
"I think Rex Ryan is per-
fect for the New York Jets,"
Johnson said. "He is 100

The Jets' press room was
packed with dozens of re-
porters and cameras, eager
to hear from the two men

out the door. Gone are

Annie's Mailbox

Dear Annie: I am a 56-year-old male
dating a woman with a 13-year-old son.
We plan to marry in the near future.
The boy has no relationship with his
father and is very fond of me, as.I am of
him. The problem is that he's a mama's.
boy. I think he is jealous of me. He com-
petes for his mother's attention and goes
so far as to crawl into bed with us in the
morning in order to-snuggle with her.
When we sit on the sofa, he joins us and
places his mother's arm around his neck
as if to say, "Hey, what about me?"
I've tried to ignore this behavior, but it
is starting to wear on me. My girlfriend
sees nothing wrong with it, saying they
have always been close and it's always
been just the two of them. But I think this
isn't quite right. I want her son to grow
up a bit.
I raised three children and never
experienced this type of thing with my'
kids. I feel she needs to do something to
curb this behavior. Am I being insecure

In today's deal there is not only a right suit to
play first, but also a right way to play it. South is
in three'no-trump. West leads his fourth-highest
spade, East puts up the jack, and declarer takes
the trick with his queen. How should he continue?
South had six top tricks: two spades (given the
first trick) and four diamonds. Looking no further
than dummy's strongest suit, he played a club
to the jack. However, East won with his ace and
returned a spade. Declarer's 10 lost to West's king,
and another spade dislodged declarer's ace.
Unconcerned, South led another club, but
West's diamond discard was a huge disappoint-
ment. Declarer won on the board and called for
a heart, but East grabbed the trick with his ace
and returned his last spade. The defenders took
one club, one heart and three spades for down
Yes, South was unlucky, but if he had thought
about a bad club break, he might have thought
about the right line of play He should have played
a diamond to dummy and led a low heart toward
his jack. Here, if East ducks, declarer wins the trick
and shifts to clubs, taking two spades, one heart,
four diamonds and two clubs. If East wins, South
has two spades, three hearts and four diamonds.
Lastly, if West could capture the heart jack with
the ace, a spade lead would give South a third trick
in the suit. Declarer would have time to knock out
the club ace and win at least one overtrick.

or territorial or something? I love my
girlfriend and don't want this to be an
issue, but I have no idea what to do. Any

Dear Contest Many boys at 13 are still
children, and the cuddling with Mom-
my is not indicative of an aberration.
However, this is also a time when Mom
should be setting sensible boundaries
and gently discouraging too much
intimacy. Some boys can confuse their
love for Mom with their developing
sexual feelings. Please approach this
Suggest that the two of you talk to the
boy's pediatrician'about appropriate
behavior, and make sure your girlfriend
understands that her son's long-term
best interests must take precedence. For
information and assistance, we suggest

at stepfamilies.info.

tured a schedule might
find you much too restless
and champing at the bit.

tives who truly believe in

board to success.

BCS Championship Game

Saban quickly turns focus to 2013 season

The Associated Press
- It's becoming a famil-
iar January scene for Nick
The Alabama coach plas-
tered a smile on his face
for a series of posed pho-
tos next to the various tro-
phies awarded to college
football's national champi-
ons and then proceeded to
talk about the challenges
facing his team.
Maybe Saban let the Ga-
torade dry from the cel-
ebratory drenching before
thinking about the 2013
season. Maybe.
"The team next year is 0-
0," Saban, who is on a 61-7
run over the past five sea-
sons, said Tuesday morn-
ing. "Even though I really
appreciate what this team
accomplished and am very,
very proud of what they
accomplished, we need to
prepare for the challenges
of the new season' very
quickly with the team we
have coming back."
It didn't take Saban long
to refocus after Monday
night's 42-14 demolition of
Notre Dame that secured a
second straight BCS title,
the Crimson Tide's third
in four seasons and the

seventh straight for South-
eastern Conference teams.
Shortly after the game, he
was already talking about
getting back to the office
by Wednesday morning.
Alabama players, mean-
while, finally were able to
voice the "D-word." Center
Barrett Jones said he had
a Sports Illustrated cover
from a couple of years ago
after his last college game.
"It says, 'Dynasty. Can
anybody stop Alabama?'
I'll never forget looking at
that thing and wonder-
ing if we really could be a
dynasty," said Jones, who.
mainly put it on the wall
because he's featured. "I
think three out of four, I'm
no dynasty expert, but that
seems like a dynasty to me.
I guess I can say that now
that I'm gone. Don't tell
coach I said that."
The 2013 team will al-
most certainly be regarded
among the preseason fa-
vorites to get back to the
summit, even though three
Tide stars tailback Eddie
Lacy, cornerback Dee Mil-
liner and right tackle D.J.
Fluker could decide to
skip their senior seasons
and turn pro.
Saban also emphatically
tried to end speculation

that he might return to the
NFL, where he spent two
years with the Miami Dol-
phins before returning to
the SEC.
It was a question that re-
ally made him bristle dur-
ing the 30-plus minute
news conference.
"How many times do you
think I've been asked to
put it to rest?" Saban said.
'And I've put it to rest, and
you continue to ask it. So
I'm going to say it today,
that you know, I think
somewhere along the line
you've got to choose. You
learn a lot from the experi-
ences of what you've done
in the past. I came to the
Miami Dolphins, what,
eight years ago for the best
owner, the best person
that I've ever had the op-
portunity to work for. Adnd
in the two years that I was
here, I had a very, very dif-
ficult time thinking that
I could impact the orga-
nization in the way that I
wanted to or the way that
I was able to in college,
and it was very difficult for
He said that experience
taught him that the college
ranks "is where I belong,
and I'm really happy and
at peace with all that."

As for the players, All-
America linebacker C.J.
Mosley has already said
he'll return. So has quar-
terback AJ McCarron, who
had his second straight star
'turn in a BCS title game.
"We certainly have to
build the team around
him," Saban said, add-
ing that a late-game spat
with Jones showed the
quarterback's competi-
tive fire. "I've talked a lot
about it's difficult to play

quarterback when you
don't have good players
around you. I think we
should have, God willing
and everybody staying
healthy, a pretty good re-
ceiver corps. We'll have to
do some rebuilding in the
offensive line. Regardless
of what Eddie decides to
do, we'll probably still have
some pretty decent run-
ners. But I think AJ can be a
really good player, maybe
the best quarterback in the

country next year."
The biggest question
mark is replacing three,
maybe four, starters on an
offensive line that paved
the way.
Amari Cooper, who broke
several of Julio Jones' Ala-
bama freshman receiving
marks, and fellow fresh-
man running back T.J. Yel-
don give McCarron and
the Tide a couple of po-
tent weapons, even if Lacy
doesn't return.
