in half, Wednesday, July 24, near Hartsfield Road and Pop-

from a fence near the 1-10 exit at

investigation and other confirm-

The cause of death had not been

the case is being handled as a pos-

spraying foliage in the area under
contract with the Department of
Transportation. The fence, topped

SThe Marianna Police Depart-
ment, with the assistance of the
Jackson County Sheriff's, Office,
is investigating. FDLE crime lab
technicians came from Pensacola
to collect evidence and otherwise

Among the theories being exam-

Bascom woman who was reported
missing in late March. Her male
companion reported her missing
to the Jackson County Sheriff's Of-
fice, saying that they were traveling
together on Interstate 10, with the
woman behind the wheel, when
she stopped the car, got out and
disappeared into the woods along-

Sea turtle headed for Las Vegas

The Associated Press

MARATHON- A' 320-.
pound green sea': 'turtle
is .set for'a Thursday trip
from the Florida Keys to
a glitzy Las Vegas resort's,
huge aquarium via FedEx,'
SFor almost five years,
the turtle has been cared
for in the Turtle Hospital's
100,000-gallon tidal reha-
bilitation pool.
SThe reptile cannot be re-
leased due to an irrepara-
ble collapsed lung discov-

ered during an endoscopy
performed by thd, hospi-
tal's veterinarian several
years ago. The lung defect,
.likely caused by an infec-
tion, caused the turtle to
float on its side.
To 'compensate, hospi-
tal officials used marine
epoxy to fasten weights
to the turtles shell so the
reptile can submerge and
swvim level. But every 12
to 18 months, because of
shell growth, the weights
shed off the turtle and

The lack of sheen indicates

sometimes found in gas

The fire broke out late
Tuesday following a blow-

site, and no injuries were

the blowout wouldn't be

Donald Boesch, presi-
dent of the University of

vironmental Science and
a member of the federal

panel that investigated the
BP oil spill. That's because
it's likely most of the gas

Also, by nature natural

said. And that means

Federal authorities said
in a news release that well

Sidetrack wells are a

well was being drilled.
. Boesch, the environ-

said this type of well can
be a problem because it's
usually a "legacy" issue

of older wells used and
tapped out mostly by ma-
jor oil companies that then
move on and sell to smaller
companies that have less ,
capacity to deal with safety
Boesch and others said
it's likely that the fire and
blowout can be stopped
relatively easily, at least
when compared to the BP
disaster, especially since
this is in shallow water.
Ted Bourgoyne, the for-
mer chair of Louisiana
State, University's petro-
leum engineering depart-
ment, agreed that the
.blowout didn't pose a ma-
jor environmental risk.
He said that the smoke
shouldn't be expected to
create an air pollution
problem for people on-
shore 55 miles-away.
'A gas well's not going to
result in any kind of major
pollution perhaps not
even significant pollution
if it's burning," said Bour-
goyne, who now runs the
consultancy Bourgoyne
Enterprises Inc. "Whereas

By George! Britain's

prince gets a name

The Associated Press
LONDON The little
prince was in need of a
name, and now, by George,
he's got one.
Make that three: George
Alexander Louis.
The announcement
Wednesday that Prince
William and his wife, Kate,
had selected a moniker
steeped in British history
came as royal officials
said the new parents were
seeking quiet family time
away from the flashbulbs
and frenzy that accompa-
nied the birth of their first
While the news put to
rest intense speculation
over what name the couple
would choose, the extreme
interest around it illustrat-
ed'how the 2-day-old fu-
ture heir is already on his
way to a lifetime of fanfare
and public glare.
Kensington Palace said
William and Kate were "de-
-lighted to announce" their
son's name, adding that
the baby will be known as
"His Royal Highness Prince
George of Cambridge."
The name George -
borne by six kings befits

dence in 1947. Willi.m's

father, Prince Charles, was
close to Mountbatten, who
was assassinated by the

cause hearing


The Associated Press

ATTLEBORO, Mass. A Massachu-
setts judge Wednesday gave prosecu-
tors more time to present evidence to
a grand jury in their case against for-
mer New England Patriots tight end
Aaron Hernandez.
Hernandez was in
court for what, was
supposed to be a piob-
able cause hearing, but
prosecutors said the.
Grand jury is still con-
Hemandez sidering the evidence
against him.
Judge Daniel O'Shea rescheduled
the probable cause' hearing for Aug.
22, after considering "defense objec-
tions to a delay. Hernandez will be
Held without bail until then.
Hernandez has pleaded not guilty to
murder in the death of Odin Uoyd, a
27-year-old Boston semi-professional
football player whose bodywas found
June 17 in an industrial park near
.Hernandez's home. He had been shot
five times.
Bristol County Assistant District At-
torney William McCauley said. addi-
tional evidence includes boxes of-am-
munition found at a condominium
Hernandez leased and a magazine
clip for a .45-caliber Glock in a Hum-
mer registered to him. Police say Uoyd
was killed with a .45-caliber gun. Mc-
Cauley said the box'had Hernandez's
fingerprints on i,
Hernandez attorney lames Sultan
objected to the delay, saying his cli-
ent has already been jailed for four
weeks and that the district attorney
could have waited to bring charges,
but chose to go ahead last month.
"He made it sound like a slam dunk
case," Sultafin said.
Outside court, another of Hernan-
dez's attorneys, Charles Rankin, said
he's confident Hernandez will be ex-\
onerated and his attorneys were "ex-
tremely disappointed" that prosecu-
tors weren't prepared to present their
case. Hernandez's girlfriend. Shayan-
na Jenkins, was in court for the hear-
ing but said outside the courthouse
that she had no comment.
Also Wednesday. O'Shea ruled in
favor of media organizations includ-
ing The Associated Press and ordered
the release of two arrest warrants and
other search warrants and materials
that have been impounded. They'll
be released at 3 p.m. Thursday if no
one appeals.
Prosecutors say Hernandez orches-
trated Lloyd's killing because he was
.'upset at him for talking to people
Hernandez had problems with at a
nightclub a few days earlier.
They say Hernandez and two as-
sociates, Ernest Wallace and Carlos
Ortiz, drove with Lloyd to the North
Attleborough industrial park. Author-
itieshave not said who fired the shots,
but documents filed in Florida and
released since Hernandez's last court
appearance paint the former Patri-
ot as the triggerman. According to. the
records, Ortiz told police that Wallace
said Hemrnandez fired the shots.
Hernandez was kicked off the team
soon after his arrest and New England
Patriots coach Bill Belichick broke his
silence Wednesday, saying the Patri-
ots will learn from "this terrible ex-
perience," andl that it's time for New
England to move forward.

Belichick, Pats will learn from Hernandez case

The Associated Press

New England Patriots
coach Bill Belichick broke
his silence Wednesday on
the arrest of Aaron Her-
niandez, saying the club
will learn from "this ter-
rible experience" and it's
time to "move forward."
Four weeks after the for-
mer Patriots tight end was
charged with murder and
cut by the team, Belich-
ick addressed the issue
during a 22-minute news
conference one day before
the team opens training
He expressed sympathy
for ihe family of shooting
victim Odin Lloyd, said the
in-depth process of study-
ing a player's background
is "far from perfect" but it
wouldn't 'be "overhauled,"
and took. responsibility
for bringing people to the
team. "'
"The hundreds of play-
ers we've had through
this program in,the last
14 years, there's been a lot
of good.ones, a .lot of real
'good ones," Belichick said.
"We'll 'try to do a good job
in bringing people into this
organization in the future
and try to learn from the,
Mistakes that we've made
along the way, of which
there have been plenty."
At times, Belichick
glanced down at notes.
He declined to answer
questions' about people
involved in the legal case,
saying he had been' ad-
vised not to.
His relationship with
team owner Robert Kraft
continues to. strengthen,

charged with murder. Belichick says the Patriots will learn from "this terrible experience:' and that it's time for New England
to "move forward'" ,

he said. .
Kraft has said he was
"duped" by Hernan-
dez:. When Belichick
was asked if he also had
been "duped," he said he
couldn't comment.
"I'm not trying, to make
this story disappear, but I
.respect the judicial process
and have been advised not
to comment on ongoing
legal proceedings. I'm ad-
vising our players' to do
the same things," he said.
"Ultimately, the judge or
the jury will determine the
Quarterback Tom Brady
and the team's other five
captains are scheduled
to -speak with reporters
on Thursday when train-
ing camp opens. The first
practice is set for Friday.
The Patriots are eager to

move on quickly from the
Hernandez situation 'and
any stain it leaves on the
image of a team that has
won three of its five Su-
per Bowls in Beli.thickl's 13
years as coach. Belichick
usually doesn'tfaddress the
media at training- camp
until it's begun..
"My comments are cer-
tainly not in proportion to
the 'unfortunate and sad
situationthatwe havehere,
but I've been advised to
address the subject once,
and it's time ifor the New
England Patriots to move
forward," he said. "Moving
'forward consists of what
it's always been here to
build a winning football
team, to be a strong pillar
in the community and be a
team that our fans can be
proud of."

At a court hearing that
overlapped with Belichick's
news conference, pros-
ecutoKs asked for more
time to present evidence
to a grand jury. Hemandez
was in court for what was
supposed to be a probable
cause hearing, but pros-
ecutors said the grand jury
is still considering the evi-
dence against him.
The probable cause
'hearing was rescheduled
for Aug.,22. .
Hernandez has pleaded
not guilty to murder in the
shooting death of Lloyd,
a 27-year-old Boston-
semi-professional -foot-
ball player whose body
was found June 17 in an
industrial park near Her-'
nandez's home in North
Belichick said he was out

of the United States when
he learned of the criminal
investigation. He' didn't
say, in response to a ques-
tion, if he had talked with
Hernandez since the play-
er's name was linked to it.
-"This case involves an
individual who happened
to be a New England Patri-
ot; and we certainly do not
condone unacceptable be-
havior and this does not in
Sany way represent the way
that the New England Pa-
triots want to do things,"'
he said. "As the coach of
the team, I'm primarily
responsible for the people
that we bring into the foot-
ball operation."
Hernandez dropped to
the ,,fourth round in the
2,010 NFL draft because of
character issues. Several
teams took him off their

draft board.
"We look at every play-
er's history from.the mo-
ment we start discussing
it," Belichick said, "going
back to his family, where
he grew up, what his' life-
style was like, high school,
college experiences. We
evaluate his performance,
his intelligence, his, work
ethic, his motivation, his
maturity, his improvement
and we try to project that
into our organization on a
going-forward basis.
"We'll continue to evalu-
ate the way that we "do
things, the way that we
evaluate our players and
we'll do-it on a regular, ba-
sis, not just at the begin-
ning when they come in." :
Asked if the Patriots'will
focus more on off-the-field
issues when scouting col-
lege players, he said, "We
have a process in place.
Can it be improved? Can
it be modified? It possibly
can. We'll certainly look at
it ." '
Belichick declined to re-
spond to a question about
starting cornerback Al-
fonzo Dennard, who was
charged with first-offense
drunken driving after be-
ing pulled over in his car
on July 11 in Lincoln, Neb.,,
while on probation. He re-
mains on the team.
Players are evaluated
on "a case-by-case basis,"
Belichick said. "Whatever
the circumstances are on
any one individual, you'll
have to make the decision
based on an individual
basis. .
"With Aaron, we did
what we felt was right for
the football team."

ship made Knaus push
even harder, and the nexf

two seasons led to 10 wins
and a pair of runner-up
finishes in the title race.
There were four wins in,
2005 and Johnson went
into the season finale
ranked second with a shot
at the tide. Butthe behind-
the-scenes tension, fueled
in part by Knaus' relentless
drive, nearly fractured the
team. A tire issue caused
Johlison to crash in the
finale, finish fifth in the
standings and led Hen-
drick to force his driver
and. crew chief to examine
their relationship.
Given the choice to
repair their relationship or
be split apart by the team
owner, both Johnson and
Knaus chose to continue
pushing on together.

SMeyer's history of player
discipline has been in the
spotlight this summer
with his former tight end
at Florida, ,Aaron Her-
nandez, being accused of
murdering Odin Lloyd.;,
At issue is how Meyer
handled Hemandez,
whose time at Florida
included an alleged inci-
dent in which he punched
a restaurant employee
and another in which he:.
was questioned abqut a
shooting. Neither incident
led to formal charges, butit
some have, 'questioned
whether Meyer protected
Hernandez from mean-
ingful consequences de-
spite a pattern of prob-
lematic behavior. '
Discipline became a
conversation piece again
this week when two Ohio
State players running
back Carlos Hyde and all-
conference .cornerback
Bradley Roby -were in-
volved in separate inci-
dents last weekend.'
Though'Hyde wasn't ar-
rested, Meyer suspended
him -indefinitely after he
was named a person of in-
terestin the police report
alleging that, he struck a
woman at a. nightclub.
Roby's status has been un-
clear since being arrested
in Bloomington, Ind., fol-
lowing a bar incident. He
was charged-.with misde-
meanor battery.
Yahoo! Sports reported
Wednesday, citing an

Tim Tebow as the whole-

SFloridahe bristledwhen-
ever the subject turned to
numbers of arrests. A New
York Times study showed
that 41 out of 121 players
on Florida's 2008 national
championship roster had
been arrested during .or
after college.
Wednesday, seven of 11
questions: to Meyer dur-
ing his 15-minute media
session dealt with player
discipline. But instead,
of defending his. track
record, Meyer acknowl-
edged that the criticism
bothered him and said he
wanted his ,approach to
discipline to be',"as hard
or harder" than anyone in
college football, going so
far as to have a staff mem-
ber monitor- how other
programs discipline.
"That's maybe where
I've changed over the
years," Meyer said. "Even
as a first-time offense
from a freshman, I want
to make sure we're setting
the tone."
Meyer declined to dis-
cuss the issues surround-
ing Hernandez.
"It felt awful. It's a sick
feeling," Meyer said when
asked about his name be-
ing connected to Hernan-
dez. "Your thoughts and
prayers are with the fam-

DearAnnie: I am woman and am deep-
ly attracted to a good friend, also female.
We have begun watching a facy TV show
together at my home, and it's becoming
very uncomfortable for me to watch it
with her. I find myself wondering wheth-
er I should instead offer to loan her the
DVDs so she can watch them on her own.
If so, do I need to explain why?
I am wondering what course of ac-
tion is: least likely to put a crimp in our

Dear Crushing: Is it possible that your
friend is interested in you romantically?
If you think that might be the case, you
should tell her that you are attracted to
her and see what happens. However, if
that is too emotionally frightening and
you 'fear it will end the friendship, you
need to 'stop these incendiary "dates" in
whatever way removes the intimacy from
your get-togethers.
.Offer hier the DVDs and say that you
are tired of watching this show. You could
suggest an alternate TV program that is
less racy or invite more people over so it's

Bridge players should be keeping an eye open for
dangers the fourth letter of my "trade" acronym.
In particular, it is hard to break the habits of a" life-
time when a deal comes along that does not fit into
a typical pattern. In today's, how should South plan
the play in three no-trump, and how should East de-
feat him?
After a simple Stayman auction, West leads the
heart nine, top of touching cards in a suit containing
no honors.
South has eight top tricks: three hearts and five
clubs. He can get a Yninth winner from diamonds.
The danger is that the defenders will take the first
diamond trick and cash four spades. When declarer
needs some help from the defenders, he should put
them on the spot as quickly as possible. South should
take the first trick with his ace, play a club to the
queen, feigning a finesse, and call for a diamond.
Many Easts would play second hand low without
even thinking. But an East who is used to deducing
the danger will see that declarer has at least eight
winners via three hearts and five clubs. If he is al-
lowed to steal a diamond trick, he will be home.
East should dive in with the diamond ace and shift
to the spade king. When it holes, he continues with
his second spade and the contract dies.

not only the two of you. You do hot have
to bare your soul to her if it makes you
uncomfortable, but it means you must
stop putting yourself in 'this compromis-

Dear Annie: My father recently informed
me 6f some dark family history that hap-
pened years ago. I already felt disconnect-
ed from his side of the family, but now I
feel ashamed to be a part of these secrets.
I am considering changing my surname.
I suspect my father will be angry that I'm
giving up the family name, and I realize
that my name doesn't necessarily reflect
on me, but going through life connected
to those bad things seems like a worse op-
tion. What do you think?

Dear Shady: Unless your family name
is particularly .recognizable, it is un-
likely that anyone will connect you to
these dark deeds. However, if you wish
to change your name as a protest against
your father's family, that is up to you. But
be prepared for his reaction and willing to
face the consequences.

A couple of questions we
just had to ask ourselves


Sleepy little Eldora might light
a tire for NASCAR's future.
Any chance the truck
race at Eldora will lead
to more dirt in NA-
SCAR's future?
GODSPEAK: Let's see how
it goes or blows. They are
using asphalt trucks on a dirt
course. II it's a success, yes,
we'll see more of it.
KEN'S CALL: You thinkthere'd
be some excitement among
"real" stock-car fans it the two
road courses were replaced by
half-mile dirt events? Build it,
and they will come.
Was Kyle Busch smart
to soften his comments
about Ryan Newman?
GODSPEAK: Did he do it in
time? Smokey Bear told me
years ago that a smoldering
ember can rekindle back into
a roaring fire and to run lor
our lives. Maybe Busch should
stop, drop and roll.
KEN'S CALL: You call a guy
an ogre, then admit he's
tougher than you. If Step 3
isn't a backtrack, you're not
thinking clearly.

Mark.Martin has done just about everything a future Hall
of Famer can accomplish in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series,
except win the championship. The 54-year-old driver has 40
wins in a sterling career that stretches back to 1981, when
he scored one top-five finish in only five starts. He has been
runner-up in the final standings five times.
Martin can fill that title void well, kinda this season
if the No. 55 Michael Waltrip Racing Toyota continues on its
surge. Martin is the primary driver of the stock car he shares
with Brian Vickers and Waltrip. In its'past two races, Waltrip
finished fifth at Daytona and Vickers won at New Hampshirei
The No. 55 scorecard reads: Martin, one top-five and
four top-lOs; Vickers, one win and three top-lOs; Waltrip, two
top-fives in only three starts. '
Vickers' win has put the No. 55 car in the mix for the
Cup Series championship for, car owners. NASCAR has a
points system for drivers, the one most follow, and
another for car owners. If the No. 55 gets
into the Chase, either as a top-lO points """
performer or as a wild card, the Cup
Series could gel a split championship.
There are seven more races to decide
the Chase reld, with Indiarnapolih on deck '--

currently 13lh in owner points, two points .-..

head table for the awards banquet in Las Vegas and get a
very fat check. Last year's championship team owner, Roger
Penske, pocketed $2.86 million.
In the past 10 years, the NASCAR Nationwide Series has
seen two split championships, so it can be done. So, after all
these years, we Could still see Martin posing next to a Cup
Series championship trophy. How about that?

The King's landlord
This seemed like an odd note that crossed the wire
-desk last week. Richard Petty Motorsports leases its race
shop in Concord, N.C. No big deal, right? The guy who owns
the property is sports-car legend Boris Said, who is in the
process of selling the facility. Apparently, Said is near a
closing on the facility. "We're looking at our options right
now," RPM director of operations Sammy Johns told Fox
Sports. Petty has been a good tenant and doesn't expect an
evili:'r rnolice fr,,m thE new owner.

Stealing Hylton's thunder
S Mor.gin Shepherd says hel'has a ride for the 2014
SDaytona 500 at Daytona International Speedway.
SShepherd becarrie the oldestt driver to compete in a Cup
Series rare when hIe .tarted the New Hampshire race on
July 14 at age 71. AtterwNjrd, he said he got a promise from
the owner ,:I the I J,,. 52 Toyota, Bob Keselowski, to run
I the 500. i0 course, he has.to qualify for the
rac- which is no easy task. Shepherd.may
S have a long career ahead of him. James
,, Hyltin competed in Daytona's ARCA
'".': lf 200 this year at the young age of 78.

Mark Martin looks like he might
be hiding some extra.points in
that bag.

Ryan Newman vs. Kyle Busch: They had a
problem at New Hampshire, and Newman
seems to get angrier about it with each
passing day.
Godwin Kelly gives his take: "It didn't help
that Busch described Newman as a 'big
ogre' and 'stupid.' That was like throwing a
lighted match in a pool ot gas."

Notice how they always 'iss the bricks and not
all those sponsorE.
Can we please just call it
the Brickyard 400?
Frankly. you can just call it the Brickyard. By
now. we've all come to realize it's 400 miles.
However, i you decide to "do right" by all
the sponsors and use the official race name.
we suggest you lirst lake a deep breath. On
the official literature, here it is: Crown Royal
Presents the Samuel Deeds 400 at the
Brickyard Powered by Bigmachnhmerecords.conm.

How'd this happen?
Short answer: Folks wrote checks. Longer
answer: "Brickyard" had to be in there for .
tradition's sake, because indy's rulers love
tradition. But they also love lat bottom lines.
so they tool', ojn Crown Royal as presenting
sponsor, and Crown Royal sought more notice
with its "Hero" program, which uncovered the
great work of Samuel Deeds, whose reward
includes seeing his name atop the race. And
when Big Machine Records made it worthwhile.
Indy added another line to the letterhead. It
makes business sense, but makes us nostalgic
lor Ihe old Pork The Other White Meal 400.

Names change, but do the
Indy facts remain?
'iep. and here's the most important. every
year. The Brickyard, more than any other
race on the schedule, identifies the cream of
the crop. Given the prestige of Indy and the
accompanying desire for teams to win there.
everyone brings the best equipment. And that
equipment befltter be able to deliver high speeds
and great handling. Don't look tor a surprise
winner this weekend.
