A flash flood watch was issued earlyTues-
day afternoon for Jackson and surrounding
Florida counties, as well as nearbyAlabama
and Georgia communities. "With heavy
rainfall expected over the next several days,
the watch will. be in place through Friday
SAccording to Jackson County Emergency
Management Director Rodney Andreasen,
the uncertainties associated with a tropi-
:cal storm make it- difficult to accurately
predict rainfall amounts, but there is fair'
confidence that at least three or four inches -
will come down, and some forecasters say-
coastal and low-lying areas could see as
much as 10 inches. With the just-northern
states getting the same downpour, flash
flooding could be an issue for several days
after the rain lets up as that water moves i
Andreasen said people who are planning
a holiday on the water should be extremely
cautious, and perhaps make backup plans
if the skies go gray with steadyrain. Keep'
an ear tuned for marine forecasts before
heading out on a boating excursion -and
make sure to have'all required safety and
security equipment on board if you do ven- v

New standards will do
more harm than good
oo many students are being set up to think they
are failures by the very people who say they are
pushing students to excel. Their teachers will
see their hard work in front of the class-undercut. And
parents will think, wrongly, that theirchildren-are at-
tending substandard schools... .
In a state system that rewards high-scoring schools
with more money and penalizes lower-performing
schools by withholding funds, the new state standards
will do damage not just to institutions of learning.'
The quality of schools, is a large factor in home values.
An "A' school that plummets to a 'C" will ding values
throughout a neighborhood.
Florida wants its students to perform ever better on
standardized tests such as the FCAT a laudable goal.
But for the past few years, it has taken a wrongheaded
The state has continually fiddled with the school-
grading formula, making more than a dozen changes
this year alone. The grading standards have been
changed, midstream, and it stands to demoralize teach-
ers and students even if students have tested better
than the previous year,-- and send horrified parents in
search of educational alternatives.
Unfortuntmately, Florida continues to tamper with the
school grading formula, despite the objections of dis-
trict superintendents, teachers and parent groups.
There is still a sliver of hope that education officials
can be talked back from this ledge. An .11-member:
advisory group, which includes Miami-Dade Schools
Superintendent Alberto Carvalho,; will meet Mondayto
begin a review of the State's accountability system and
recommend changes before school grades are issued
this summer. The state Department of Education and
the Florida Association for District School Superinten-
dents created the .task force.
SEducation officials should scrap the provision that
factors the scores of students at alternative centers
and specialized exceptional education centers into the'
scores at their would-be neighborhood school. ...
There's still time to reconsider these onerous changes,

Rubio immigration strategy disappointed many
T n the end, immigration reform
lreallywas a done deal in the
Senate. Debates come down to
numbers on Capitol Hill, and the
Gang of Eight reform team had
the numbers. Needing 60 votes to
overcome a filibuster, they started':..
with the Senate's 54 Democrats and
then added the four Republican
Gang members. With 58 votes in
the bag, it wasn't hard to get to 60.
So most of the 14 Republicans who
ultimately voted for the bill were
extras, not needed for passage but
helpful to Ilow the reformers to
claim a broad mandate. '
From the beginning, many Sen- '
ate Republicans were terrified of
immigration reform.lThey knew
large part-of theitbase opposed any
Measure thatsmelled of"amnesty."
But they were also deeply shaken
by last November's election results,
in which Mitt Romney won just 27
percent of thejiispanic vote. Some
GOP strategists, and some Senate
colleagues, told them theRepubli-
can Party would be finished unless.,
it supported reform..
Florida Sen. Marco Rubio has
been more than thd GOP point man
on immigration. From January,
when the Gang of Eight announced
its intentions, until April, when it
unveiled its bill, Rubio was the man'
Republicans hid behind. "We're
waiting for Marco",became the Sen-
ate Republican caucus's unofficial.
position on immigration.,'
After the Gang unveiled its bill,
one might have expected GOP.
lawmakers to take a stand. Instead,
many still deferred to Rubio, saying
they were waiting to see what kind
'ofimprovements he might deliver.:
"Menendez told me that Rubio's'I
role was to 'work over the conserva-
tive universe, particularly the con-
servative opinion-maker universe,'
in order to 'neutralize them' and, in
some cases, 'proselytize them,'" The
New Yorker's Ryan Lizza reported
.recently, referring to Democratic
Gang member Robert Menendez.
The leader of the Gang, Democrat
Charles Schumer, "was delighted to
have a Tea Party conservative who
could sell an immigration bill to the
right," Lizza wrote.
The plan worked brilliantly. I
Conservative talk-radio hosts who
might haveinstinctively opposed
immigration reform as conceived
by Schumer gave Rubio a respectful
hearing and a lot of room. When
Rubio told them the bill' would se-
cure the border first, they believed'
Later, when it became unavoid-
ably clear that, in fact;'the bill
would first legalize millions of cur-
rentiy illegal immigrants, and only.
after that start the work of securing'
the:border, some conservatives
began to express skepticism, disap-
pointment and opposition. But
Rubio's neutralization campaign
had bought the Gang precious
months to write the bill and gather
momentum before conservatives
began to realize what was actually
in it. '
All that news tended to obscure
the deep divisions inside the GOP
over reform. Even with 14 Repub-
licans voting yes on the Gang bill;
more than twice thatnumber, 32,
voted no. And then, of course, there
is the GOP-controlled House, where
reform might well die.
But the Senate is finished, at
least fdr now. Over the last several
months, beyond deferring to Rubio,
the only other thing some Republi-
cans would say about immigration
was, "We need to put this issue.
behind us." They were speaking po-
litically, in the hope that they could
vote' for the Gang of Eight bill and
then begin to reap benefits with
That's highly unlikely, but one
thing is for sure: They have disap-
pointed a lot of their conservatives
supporters, most likely for a long .

In this 2010 photo, the Deepwater Horizon oil rig burns in the Gulf of Mexico. A lawyer working
to review claims as part of the multibillion-dollar settlement over BP's Gulf oil spill has been
accused of receiving payments from a law firm representing a claimant.
Freeh was a.federal judge
in New York before serv-
ing as FBI director from
S1993 to 2001. He founded
his consulting firm, Freeh

tions LLC,.iA 2007.
"We believe that Judge

In April 2010, the oil drill-
ing rig Deepwater Horizon
exploded off the Louisiana
coast, killing 11 workers
and led to millions of gal-
lons of oil being spewed
into the water. Marshes,
fisheries and beaches from
Louisiana to Florida were
fouled by the oil until a cap
was placed over the blown-
out well in July 2010'.
BP set up a compensa-
tion fund for individuals
and businesses hurt by the
spill and committed $20
billion. Juneau took over
the processing of claims
after the settlement was
reached last year. His office
has determined more than
$3 billion in claims are eli-
gible for payment through,
the settlement agreement.
BP argues Barbier and
Juneau misinterpreted the
settlement and have al-
lowed th6usafids of busi-.
nesses to receive hundreds
of millions of dollars in set-
tlement payments for ficti-
tious and inflated claims.
BP appealed Barbier's rul-
ings on the issue. A panel
from the 5th U.S. Circuit

He warned that electoral and con-

SMorsi's defiant statement showed
that he and his Muslim Brother-
hood are prepared to run the risk
of challenging the army. It also en-
trenches the lines of confrontation
between his Islamist supporters
and Egyptians angry over what they
see as his efforts to impose control

Morsi "doesn't understand. He will
take us toward bloodshed and civil

old protester sitting on the sidewalk
outside the Ittihadiyapalace, deject-
edly resting his head on his hand.
The president's supporters also
moved out in increased marches in
Cairo and other cities. Morsi's sup-
porters have stepped up warnings
that it will take bloodshed to dis-
lodge him. While Morsi has stuck
to a stance that he is defending de-

Germany's Sabine Lisicki reacts after winning her

LONDON If Sabine Lisicki had a letdown after
defeating Serena Williams, it didn't show .
If Lisicki is penciling herself into the Wimbledon
final, she isn't saying.

Indeed. Lisicki opened the match
by breaking Kanepi's serve in the first game and
didn't look back in that set. In the second, she had
one hiccup a game in which she double-faulted
three times to drop a break and fall behind 2!'1. She
broke back right away, however, and won four of
the next five games to close the match.
Now, the 23-year-old German finds herself in the
Wimbledon semifinals for the second time in three
years. Her win against Williams made her the new,
odds-on favorite to win the title and even pushed
Britain's favorite tennis player, Andy Murray, off the
back pages of a couple London tabloids.
All of which means almost nothing at least to
hear Lisicki tell it.

South, with seven top
tricks (two spades, two
hearts and three dia-
monds), must establish
two club tricks to get
home. The best way to do
that is low to dummy's
king on the first round.
But even if South can suc-
ceed, he will lose the lead
twice. There is a risk that
the defenders will estab-
lish and run West's spade
In this situation, with :
two key-cards to dislodge;
declarer usually should
duckthe first trick.
After taking the sec-
ond spade in his hand,
South plays a club to
dummy's king. Now is the
key moment. East must
realize that if declarer has
the club ace, his queen
is worthless. He must
sacrifice his queen under
dummy's king. Here,
this gives West two club
entries, one to establish
his spades and one to cash
