Police work on identifying body found near 1-10


BY DEBORAH BUCKHALTER
dbuckhalter@jcfloridan.com
Jackson County Sheriff
Lou Roberts on Thurs-
day released the name of
a woman who has been
missing since March of
this year, saying there are
"some very close similari-
ties" in what they know of
her as compared to evi-
dence found on or near an
unidentified body found
hanging Wednesday from
a fence alongside the
westbound off-ramp of
Interstate 10, leading to
Penn Avenue in Marian-
na. Authorities stressed,


however, that no positive
identification of the body
has yet been made.
The missing woman was
identified as Mishy Brown,
a 44-year-old Bascom resi-
dent and mother of several
children. Her name was
entered into local and na-
tional databases for miss-
ing persons and ground
searches were conducted
after her disappearance,
with no results to date.
A right-of-way mainte-
nance crew found the par-
tially decomposed body of
an unknown woman early
Wednesday morning. The


Marianna Police Depart-
ment is in charge of the
death investigation and is
awaiting a medical exam-


iner's report and reviewing
other information in an at-
tempt to positively identify
the remains.


The Marlanna Police
Department was joined by
Sthe State Medical Examiner's
Office and the Florida Depart-.
ment of Law Enforcement
Wednesday during the inves-
tigation of a body found near
the westbound Interstate 10
off- ramp at Penn Avenue.



The state of decompo-
sition suggests that the
victim has been deceased
for some time, according


to investigators.
Brown was reported
missing on March 28 of
this year. Her husband
gave his report to the Jack-
son County Sheriff's Office
on that date, saying that
she got out of a vehicle
the day before while it was
stopped on 1-10 and that
she had walked away. The
husband reported that he
got out and looked for her
and drove back and forth
in the area he last saw her
in an attempt to find her.

A after a week of cloudy, rainy and occasionally very stormy weather, blue skies returned
to Jackson County Thursday. People were taking advantage of it, too. Family and friends
At o were gathering at Compass Lake to enjoy a little bit of sun while in Marianna the Madi-
son Street Splash Pad was busy as kids ran off some energy. The rain may be returning soon,
though. There is a chance of thunderstorms every day through Monday with highs in the low
90s today and Saturday.

As temperatures climbed toward the high 80s, umbrellas that
had been used to keep off the rain were pressed into service
Thursday to keep off the sun. Renee Morgan did so as she was

Subdivision wants new hearing on budget proposal


BY DEBORAH BUCKHALTER
dbuckhalter@jcfloridan.com
The Property Owners Association
manager at Compass Lake in the Hills
wants a rehearing on the assessment
increase he proposed for the subdivi-
sion, a $15 annual uptick, that Jackson
County Commissioners denied this
week.
In addition to their regular ad va-
lorem taxes, property owners in the
subdivision pay into a special Munici-
pal Services Taxing Unit that funds the
annual budget for road improvements


and other essential services there. The
yearly assessment is $135 per lot; POA
Manager John Laymon proposed that
it be increased to $150 this year. He
said the increase would generate an
estimated $85,000 and that the money
would be used exclusively to buy rock
used to improve roads there.
Laymon said his office was told that
the initial hearing on his budget would
be on July 24, a Wednesday. Instead, the
county took the matter up on Tuesday,

Neighbors fight

warehouse
BY DEBORAH BUCKHALTER
dbuckhalter@lcfloridan.com
A tobacco warehouse owner near Green-
wood is asking that the county change the
property's future land use designation so
that he can continue his operation arid be
in compliance with county rules that govern
development.
Several neighbors of the operation say the
business began without the proper authoriza-
tion and is a disturbance in the residential area
surrounding it. They're fighting the change he
seeks.
Although the Jackson County Planning Com-
mission and the county's planning staff are in
agreement with the neighbors' position that
the land use change should not be retroactive-
ly granted, and have formally recommended
against it1 county commissioners tabled the
matter this week for further study. Commis-
sioner Willie Spires made the successful mo-
tion to table, saying he hadn't had a chance to

ence prepares and edu-
cates county coordinators

During the conference,
a lot of information was
presented and enthusiasm
filled the air as conference
attendees learned of excit-
ing preparations to begin
a new year with Special
Olympics Florida.
Jackson County 'was

She brought back informa-

which has been in op-
eration for two years at
Hope School in Jackson
County.
"We had approximately


33 young athletes in the
YAP this past year. These
young athletes are in-
troduced to the world of
sports and it helps them
improve physically, cogni-
tively and socially. It also
prepares them to partici-
pate in Special Olympics at
the age of eight," Henrick-
son said.

Geraghty said the re-

NASA's new telescope


gives closer view of sun


The Associated Press
CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla.
- NASA is getting an un-
precedented close-up look
at the sun, thanks to a new
telescope.
NASA's IRIS spacecraft,
launched just a month
ago, already is provid-
ing detailed pictures of
the sun. The telescope's


door opened last week,
and it began observing
the lower solar atmo-
spheres in never-before-
seen detail. The early
results were announced
Thursday and hailed
by the research team as
exciting.
NASA's Science mission
directorate chief, former
astronaut John Grunsfeld,


says it's "a grand open-
ing of a new era in solar
physics."
IRIS is short for In-
terface Region Imaging
Spectrograph. It will con-
tinue its mission for the
next two years. Scien-
tists say the observations
will help shed light on
the sun's impact on
Earth.


This combination
of images made
available by NASA's
Goddard Space
Flight Center on
Thursday, shows
a comparison ,
between the higher
resolution provided
by the new IRIS, or
Interface Region
Imaging Spectro-
graph, (right) and

Dynamics Observa-
tory, spacecraft.

TAMPA Firefighters in
Florida are working with
CSX Transportation of-
ficials to right 10 toppled
train cars that derailed at
the Port of Tampa.
CSX spokesman Gary
Sease told the Tampa
Bay Times about 4,500
gallons of ethanol spilled
onto the ground when the
81-car train derailed early
Thursday. No one was
injured.
Sease says the ethanol


was contained to the im-
mediate area.
Officials say the train was
heading to the port from
Chicago. The cause of the
derailment was not im-
mediately known. CSX of-
ficials are investigating.
Authorities restricted
access to the port while
Tampa Fire Rescue crews
sprayed foam onto the
spill.
Equipment used to right
the toppled train cars is
being brought in from
Atlanta.

ORLANDO- The Orlan-

case of measles.'
Orange County health
officials said Thursday that
a British tourist was diag-'

tagious illness.
The patient whs exposed
to measles in the Uhited
Kingdom before taking a
trip to Florida.


1Health officials say the
patient visited numerous
tourist attractions in cen-
tral Florida last week.
They advise that any-
body who develops a rash-
like: illness should seek
medical care. Symptoms
include a blotchy rash, fe-
ver, cough, runny nose and
a run-down feeling.

Dems target Scott with web ads, social media


The Associated Press

TALLAHASSEE The
Florida Democratic Party
announced Thursday it is
beginning an online and
social media campaign
targeting Republican Gov.
Rick Scott, even though
the party doesn't have a
well-known, well-funded
candidate to face him.
The Democratic Party is
buying ads on newspaper
and social media website
to promote www.realricks-
cott.com which criticizes
Scott's record as governor.
"With his re-election
looming; we have seen
him try to change his
stripes and camouflage
his real motivations and
his real beliefs in his effort
to win over independent


and moderate voters,"
said party Chairwoman
Allison Tant. "It hasn't
worked all year and we're
going to make sure it
doesn't."
The campaign comes
as Democrats wait for
a strong candidate to
emerge against Scott.
The only credible candi-
date in the race right now
is former state Sen. Nan
Rich, who has struggled
to raise the money needed
for a successful statewide
campaign. She's been a
candidate for more than
a year and has raised only
$160,000 in a state where it
costs more than $1 million
to run a week of television
ads. And a Quinnipiac
University poll last month
showed that 84 percent of


voters don't know enough
about Rich to form an
opinion.
Former Republican Gov.
turned Democrat Charlie
Crist is widely expected
to get in the race and 2010
nominee Alex Sink is also
considering a run.
"We have a couple of
people who are looking
at the race. We have some
major talent with great
reach in our state and they
have the luxury' of time
and we're taking it," Tant
said.
The Republican Party
of Florida has already be-
gun online campaigns
against Crist, using a web
domain Democrats -used
against Crist back in his
days as a Republican.
The site, www.emp-


tychaircharlie.com, quotes
from old Democratic Party
press releases that at-
tacked Crist. Another site,
http://cristorylessons.
tumblr.com/, takes an
unflattering look at Crist's
record.
RPOF Chairman Lenny
Curry mentioned Florida's
improving economy and
more recent boosts in
education spending.while
defending Scott.
"The only thing that's
extreme is how extremely
sad it is that the Florida
Democratic Party will
not have a candidate for
governor who has the
second largest drop in
unemployment in the en-
tire nation," Curry said in
a statement released by a
spokeswoman.


Ex-pro wrestler arrested in fatal stabbing


The Associated Press

TAMPA A former pro-
fessional wrestler whose
Facebook page showed a
photo of a bloody body
part Wednesday evening
faces a murder charge in
the stabbing death of a
woman at a Tampa apart-
ment complex, authorities
said.
Hillsborough County
Sheriff's officials said
Brian McGhee, 29, will
be charged with first-
degree murder. He was
booked into the Pasco
County Jail 9n Thursday
morning after being treat-
ed at a Tampa hospital for
injuries suffered in a car
crash when fleeing from
deputies late Wednesday.
He went by the wrestling
monikers "The Future"
Donovan Roddick and DT
Porter.
The victim was identi-


fled as 25-year-old Bianca
McGaughey.
According to Hillsbor-
ough County Sheriff's
spokeswoman Debbie
Carter, deputies were
called to an apartment
complex around 8:30 p.m.
Wednesday. There, they
found a woman who had
been stabbed multiple
times in the neck and tor-
so lying on a sidewalk. She
died at the scene.
Detectives said McGhee
and McGaughey had
dated previously. They
broke up a year ago, but
continued contact with
each other.
McGhee was named
as a suspect and his car
was spotted. Deputies
say McGhee fled from of-
ficers and crashed his car
near Interstate 75, north
of downtown Tampa, in
,Pasco County. When he
didn't respond to com-


mands to place, his hands
in the air, law enforce-
ment officers let a police
dog inside the vehicle.
McGhee was taken to a
"Tampa hospital, where he
was being treated Thurs-
day morning for inju-
ries sustained in the
crash and the K-9
apprehension.
A photo of what appears
to be a bleeding arm or
leg was posted about 9:30
p.m. Wednesday to a Face-
bookpage under McGhee's
name. It's unclear who the
body part belongs to. The
photo had been made Mc-
Ghee's Facebook profile
photo.
According to his Face-
book page, McGhee,
who previously lived in
St. Louis, had been em-
ployed by World Wrestling
Entertainment from 2010
lto2012.
On a pro wrestling web-


site, McGhee going by
the name DT Porter is
described as being 6 feet,
6 inches tall, 251 pounds,
and a victim of childhood-
bullying.
"Once the oppressed, DT
is the one now doing the
enforcing," his wrestling
bio read. "Determihed to
take out all of his child-
hood pain and torment
out on the bodies of his
opposition, DT lacks mer-
cy, and- will deliver great
anger and furious ven-
geance on any who stand
in his way.",

How to make great choices in technical gadgets


From Consumer Reports


Think you and your fam-
ily are major multigadget-
ers now? Consumer Re-
ports notes that the mobile
wave is still cresting: More
than 240 million smart-
phones and tablets will be
sold in the United States
this year, according to the
Consumer Electronics As-
sociation. Add in millions
more cameras and other
hand-held devices, and
America is on track in 2013
to acquire a new gadget for
roughly every man, wom-
an and child over the age
of 12.
Here's Consumer Re-
ports' advice on how to
make great choices in
smartphones, tablets,
cameras, e-book readers
and more:
S*Phones, meet cameras.
Cameras, meet phones. De-
spite their tinier lenses and
image sensors, the best
new smartphone cameras
can capture images as
good as those from highly
ranked basic cameras, but
only under optimal condi-
tions. Only a few have very
good video quality. Tablets'

Mini, according to Consumer Reports.


cameras aren't as advanced
as those on phones, though
some(including the latest
iPads and Galaxy Note tab-


lets); offer flash, panorama
modes and rudimentary
manual exposure.
v E-bookmaders are down


- but not out. With e-read-
ing migrating to tablets
and phones, you may see
less need for a dedicated
e-book reader such as the
Barnes & Noble Nook or
Amazon Kindle. And you'd
be right. So why consider,
an e-book reader? Be-
cause the best are lighter
and cheaper by half than
even a small, light tablet.
They're also much better
for reading in bright light
(say, at the beach), and
they run for weeks in
some cases even months
-on a charge.
) Displays get sharp and
wide. Manufacturers are
packing more pixels into
each square inch of phone
and tablet displays. The
result is sharper type and
better-looking images, in-
cluding videos that meet
the 1080p resolution spec
of "full HD" television
screens. Another slimming
factor in some big phones,
including models from
.HTC, LG, Motorola and
Samsung, is a display that
runs nearly all the way to
the edge of the device.
) Apple holds an edge In


apps ... iPhones and iPads
are the way to go for the
most, and most varied,
apps. Though Google Play
and even Amazon's Ap-
pstore carry most major
apps, Apple usually has
them first. It also offers
many titles that never
.make it to other platforms.
And if you're looking for
the most innovative apps,
you still can't beat Apple.
)) ... But no longer in de-
sign Innovation. iPhones
and iPads remain high
performers in Consumer
Reports' Ratings and by far
the most-owned brands of
mobile devices among its
readers. But more phones
and tablets than ever are
matching or beating Ap-
ple's models in its Ratings.
Among the most domi-
nant alternatives to Apple
devices: a slew of superb
phones and tablets from
Samsung. Still, Apple re-
tains unique strengths,
including its elegant iOS
operating system, largely
unchanged for a few years
and familiar to many.

Is there any other

Pope tells


residents


of slums not


to lose hope

The Associated Press

RIO DE JANEIRO Pope
Francis, dubbed the "slum
pope" for his work with the
poor, received a rapturous
welcome Thursday from one
of Rio's most violent shan-
tytowns and demanded the
world's wealthy end the in-
justices that have left the
poor on the margins of so-
ciety. He received an even
more frenzied welcome.ashe
opened a rain-soaked World
Youth Day in a far different
setting: Rio's upscale Copa-
cabana Beach.
In between, he showed off
some of -his offbeat person-
ality, telling pilgrims from
his native Argentina that he
wanted them to make trou-
ble, shake things up in their
dioceses and make a "mess"
by going out into the streets
to spread the faith.
"We knew that in Rio there
would be great disorder, but
I want trouble in the dioces-
es!" he said, speaking off the
cuff in his native Spanish. "I
want to see the church get
closer to the people. I want
to get rid of clericalism, the
mundane, this closing -our-
selves off within ourselves,
in our parishes, schools or
structures. Because these
need to get out!"
He put that into practice on
Thursday. Amid the stench of
raw sewage and the shrieks
of residents, Francis made
his way through the Varginha
shantytown, part of a region
so violent it's known as the
Gaza Strip. The 76-year-old
Argentine seemed entirely at
home, wading into the cheer-
ipg crowds, kissing residents
young and old and telling
them the Roman Catholic
Church was on their side.
It was a message aimed
at reversing the decline in
the numbers of Catholics in
most of Latin America.

Old religious realities




in the 'new' Egypt


A t the moment, Egypt is
operating under a con-
titutional declaration
issued soon after the recent
military overthrow of Presi-
dent Mohammed Morsi and
the Muslim Brotherhood.
This temporary declara-
tion replaced a constitution
signed by Morsi in 2012,
after Islamist parties pushed
it through a referendum
process that turned off many
voters. That new constitution
replaced an ad-hoc, provi-
sional document used after
the revolution that toppled
President Hosni Mubarak.
His regime had operated for
nearly 30 years under a 1971
charter.
Yes, it's all quite compli-
cated. What outsiders must
grasp is that the fine print in
any Egyptian constitution is
not what is inspiring the ris-
ing tide of bloodshed in local
communities that is frighten-
ing leaders of the land's reli-
gious and ethnic minorities,
said Samuel Tadros, author
of "Motherland Lost: The
Egyptian and Coptic Quest for
Modernity."
Leaders of Egypt's Coptic
Orthodox Christians, an an-
cient community that makes
up about 10 percent of the
population, are not "focusing
so much on what is happen-
ing at the national level," nor
are they "just worried about
attacks by radical jihadists,"
said Tadros, a research fellow
at the Hudson Institute's
Center for Religious Freedom.
"They are worrying about be-
ing attacked by their neigh-
bors, by the people they go to
school with, the people they
ride the bus with every day.
"You can say what you want
about religious freedom in
this constitution or that con-
stitution. But once this hatred
has reached the level of your
local neighborhoods, it will
take generations to bring


about some kind of change."
This growing atmosphere of
hostility and
lack of concern
about religious
freedom can


Ter search Center
Mattingly reports cover-
ing surveys
done in Egypt
in the past three years.
The bottom line: Mus-
lims in Egypt have become
"considerably less tolerant
of religious pluralism" than
most Muslim communities in
the Middle East and around
the world, according to a Pew
analysis by Neha Sahgal and
Brian Grim.
Restrictions on religion in
Egypt in 2011 already includ-
ed "the use of force against
religious groups; failure to
prevent religious discrimina-
tion; favoritism of Islam over
other religions; prohibitions
on Muslims converting from
Islam to other religions; stig-
matization of some religious
groups as dangerous sects
or cults; and restrictions
on religious literature or
broadcasting."
In one Pew poll, only 36
percent thought it was very
important for Copts and
other religious minorities
to be able to "freely practice
their religions." At the same
time, more than 60 percent
declined to give high priority
to equal rights for women and
62 percent believed Egypt's
laws should strictly follow the
Quran.
"Egypt is the rare case in
which people are actually
comfortable with the fact that
others are not free to practice
their faith," said Sahgal, a.
senior researcher at the Pew
Forum on Religion & Public
Life. Many Egyptians even
see this low level of religious
toleration "as a good thing.


... You don't even see this in a
nation like Pakistan, where at
least in theory people
believe others should be able
to practice their faith to some
degree," she said in a tele-
phone interview.
It is especially significant
that a majority of Egyptian
Muslims believe Shariah law
should govern the lives of all
Egyptians, not just Muslim
believers. Compared with
most other Muslim lands, a
much higher percentage of
Muslims polled in Egypt want
Shariah law to control both
criminal and public laws, as
well as "domestic" laws affect-
ing marriage and family life.
Among the vast majority of
Egyptian Muslims who sup-
port Shariah, noted Sahgal, 86
percent favor the death pen-
alty for Muslims who convert
to another religion.
None of this is new, stressed
Tadros. Coptic believers died
in massacres and churches
burned in the Mubarak era,
as well as in the tumultu-
ous months since Muslims,
Christians and secular liberals
rallied together in Cairo's
most famous public space
during the Arab Spring rallies
that sought real change.
The prevailing attitude
nationwide is that "Christians
are supposed to pray at home
and stop trying to build all
those humongous churches
with big domes and crosses
on top," he said. "Egypt is an
Islamic state, and Christians
should not be doing anything
that calls that into dispute....
"That's what people believe
all across the real Egypt. It's
crucial to remember that
there is more to Egypt than
Cairo and there is more to
Cairo than Tahrir Square."

Juror says she owes parents apology


The Associated Press

ORLANDO-The second
juror to speak publicly told
ABC News in an interview
made available Thursday
that she feels George Zim-
merman got away with
murder for fatally shoot-
ing Trayvon Martin, "but
that there wasn't enough
evidence at trial to convict
him under Florida law.
Juror B29 told Robin
Roberts that she favored
convicting Zimmerman
of second-degree murder
when deliberations began
by the six-member, all-
women jury.
"I was the juror that was
going to give them a hung
jury," she said. "I fought to
the end."
But by the second day of
deliberating, she realized
there wasn't enough proof
to convict the 29-year-old
neighborhood watch vol-
unteer of a crime.
"George Zimmerman got
away with murder, but you
can't get away from God,"
she said. 'And at the end of
the day, he's going to have
a lot of questions and an-
swers he has to deal with."
Zimmerman was acquit-
ted earlier this month of
second-degree murder
and manslaughter charges
in the 2012 slaying of the

unarmed 17-year-old. The
Miami teenager was shot
and killed during a con-
frontation with Zimmer-
man in Sanford. The case
spawned heated national
debates about racial pro-
filing and the Stand Your
Ground self-defense laws
in Florida and other states.
Zimmerman was seen
publicly for the first time
last week when he assisted
a family after their SUV
flipped over on a Florida
highway.
Juror B29 is the second
panelist to go public with
what went on during delib-
erations earlier this month.
She allowed her face to be


shown and used her first
name, Maddy, unlike Juror
B37, who was interviewed
on CNN last week with her
face obscured.
Four jurors, not includ-
ing the one interviewed by
ABC, issued a statement
last week saying the opin-
ions expressed by Juror
B37 to CNN's Anderson
Cooper did not represent
their views.
That juror said the ac-
tions of Zimmerman and
Martin both led to the
teenager's fatal shooting,
but thafZimmerman didn't
actually break the law.
Juror B29 also told ABC
that she didn't believe race


was an issue at the trial.
Though the judge so far
has refused to release the
names or biographical in-
formation about the jurors,
B29 said she was 36 years
old and Puerto Rican.
Martin was black and
Zimmerman identifies
himself as Hispanic. Mar-
tin's parents believe Zim-
merman racially profiled
their son when he started
following him after spot-
ting him walking through
the neighborhood where
Zimmerman lived and
Martin was visiting. B29
said she couldn't speak for
her fellow jurors on the
race issue. The other wom-
en on the jury were white.
Juror B29 is a nursing
assistant and mother of
eight children who recent-
ly moved to Florida from
Chicago.
She said she feels like she
owes Martin's parents an
apology.
"I felt like I let a lot of
people down, and I'm
thinking to myself, 'Did I
go the right way? Did 1 go
the wrong way?'" she said.
"As much as we were try-
ing to find this man guilty
... They give you a booklet
that basically tells you the
truth, and the truth is that
there was nothing that we
could do about it."


Lobsterman survives night in sea

Credits his rubber boots for survival


The Associated Press

OAKDALE, N.Y. -A Long
Island lobsterman who
spent 12 hours floating in
the Atlantic Ocean after
falling off his boat joked
Thursday that he may have
the two rubber boots that
kept him afloat bronzed.
John Aldridge was res-
cued a day earlier when
the Coast Guard found him
floating in the ocean off of
Montauk Point, about 40
miles from where he tum-
bled off the 44-foot lobster
boat Anna Mary at about 3
in the morning.
Aldridge, 45, was treated
at a hospital in Falmouth,
Mass., for dehydration,
exposure and hypother-
mia and released Thursday
morning. Relatives drove
him back to. Long Island,
where he arrived mid-af-
ternoon to hugs from his
parents and relatives, in-
cluding young nephew
Jake, who peppered him
with questions about his
experience.
"Shot" is how Aldridge
described his overall con-
dition, noting he had yet to
get much sleep.


Aldridge, who has been
a lobsterman for 19 years
working out of Montauk,
said he was preparing for a
day of fishing when he at-
tempted to move a bever-
age cooler.
"The handle broke off
and I fell off the back of the
boat. Jlst like that," he told
reporters during a news
conference outside his
parents' home in Oakdale.
"I just watched the boat
float away."
Aldridge said while he
had read books and articles
about survival techniques,
instincts really took over.
He noticed his calf-
length rubber boots were
allowing his feet to float
higher in the water than
his head, so he took off the
boots, turned them upside
down and filled them with
air. He placed one under
each arm and used them
as flotation devices.
"Once I did that, I was
good to go," he said. "The
water was warm, my head
was above water, so I was
floating and I knew I had to
conserve energy and that
was it, I floated for hours."
He was able to see other

boats in the area looking
for him and noticed planes
and helicopters overhead,
but he just drifted for
hours, he said.
"I saw everybody look-
ing for me, and no one saw
me," Aldridge said.
At about midafternoon
Wednesday, he noticed
a Coast Guard jet flying
overhead; about 30 min-
utes later, a Coast Guard
helicopter was hovering
and soon a swimmer was
in the water helping him.
"I've been looking for
you for nine hours," Al-
dridge said the rescuer
told him. He countered,


"I've been looking for you
for 12 hours."
While he was adrift, he
said, his thoughts were of
family and friends back
home.
"I was like, 'There's no
way I'm dying this way.' I
was like, 'This is how I got-
ta go?' No way," Aldridge
said. "So I just put my head
to thinking survival mode
and I wasn't dying that way.
Dying wasn't an option."
His father, John Aldridge
Sr., joked to his son not
to reveal the brand name
on the boots to reporters:
"Not until we get a con-
tract offer."

Feds: Halliburton


agrees to plead


guilty in oil spill


The Associated Press

WASHINGTON Hal-
liburton Energy Services
has agreed to plead guilty
to destroying evidence
in connection with the
2010 Gulf oil spill, the De-
partment of Justice said
Thursday.
Federal officials said in a
news release that a crimi-
nal information charg-
ing Hallburton with one
count of destruction of
evidence was filed in fed-
eral court in Louisiana.
Halliburton has agreed
to pay the maximum
fine, be on probation for
three years and continue
to cooperate with the
government's criminal in-
vestigation, according to
the news release, which
did not list the amount of
the fine.
The Houston-based
company has also made
a $55 million voluntary
contribution to the Na-
tional Fish and Wildlife
Foundation. It was not
a condition of the court
agreement, the news re-
lease says.
The company said in a
statement Thursday night
that it had agreed to plead
guilty "to one misde-
meanor violation associ-
ated with the deletion of
records created after the
Macondo well incident,
to pay the statutory maxi-
mum fine of $200,000 and
to accept a term of three
years probation."
The Justice Department
has agreed it will not pur-
sue further criminal pros-
ecution of the company
or its subsidiaries for any
conduct arising from the
2010 spill, Halliburton's
statement said, adding
that federal officials have
also "acknowledged the
company's significant
and valuable coopera-
tion during the course of
its investigation."
The plea agreement is
subject to court approval,
the company said.
Halliburton was BP's
cement contractor on the
drilling rig that exploded
in the Gulf of Mexico in
2010. The blowout trig-
gered an explosion that
killed 11 workers and
spilled millions of gallons
of oil into the Gulf.
According to the news
release, Halliburton con-
ducted its own review of
the well's design and con-
struction after the blow-
out, and established a
working group to review


"whether the number of
centralizers used on the
final production casing
could have contributed to
the blowout."
The casing is a steel pipe
placed in a well to main-
tain its integrity. Central-
izers are metal collars at-
tached on the outside of
the casing. Centralizers
can help keep the casing
centered in the wellbore.
"Centralization can be
significant to the quality
of subsequent cementing
around the bottom of the
casing," the news release
said.
Prior to the blowout,
Halliburton had recom-
mended to BP the use of
21 centralizers in the well,
but BP decided to use six
instead, the news release
says.
Around May 2010, the
news release says, the
company directed a pro-
gram manager to conduct
two computer simula-
tions of the Macondo
well final cementing job
"to compare the impact
of using six versus 21
centralizers."
The simulations indi-
cated there was little dif-
ference between using
six and 21 centralizers,
but the program manager
"was directed to, and did,
destroy these results,"
federal officials say.
Similar evidence was
destroyed in a subsequent
incident, in June 2010, the
Justice Department said.
The plea agreement and
criminal charge both arise
from a criminal investiga-
tion by the Deepwater
Horizon Task Force into
the spill.

Report: HPV vaccination rate still lagging


The Associated Press

ATLANTA Only about
half of U.S. teenage girls
have gotten a controversial
cervical cancer vaccine -
a rate that's changed little
in three years.
"We're dropping the
ball," said Dr. Thomas
Frieden, head of the Cen-
ters for Disease Control
and Prevention.
About 54 percent of teen-
age girls have received at

U hy.yriiJ~ffiu


least one of the three HPV
shots. Only a third was
fully immunized with all
three doses.
Last year's rates were es-
sentially unchanged from
2011, and up only slightly
from 2010. Rates for other
vaccines aimed at ado-
lescents have risen much
faster. A big part of the
problem: Family doctors
aren't prodding patients to
get HPV shots as forcefully
as they recommend other


vaccines, health officials
said.
The vaccine, introduced
in 2006, protects against
human papillomavirus, or
HPV.The sexuallytransmit-
ted bug can cause cervical
cancer and genital warts.
The vaccine was first rec-
ommended for girls ages
11 and 12 because it works
best if given before a teen
starts to have sex. In 2011,
it was also recommended
for boys that age to help


prevent the virus's spread.
More than 20 states have
considered adding HPV to
the vaccines required for
school attendance but only
Virginia and the District of
Columbia did so.
CDC studies have shown
no significant side effects,
and that girls who got the
shots did not start having
sex earlier than girls who
didn't. Still, some parents,
teens and their doctors
have been hesitant.

Egypt braces for day of rival raffllies


The Associated Press

CAIRO Political allies
of Fgypi's military lined
up behind its call for huge
rallies Friday to 'show sup-
port for the country's top
general, pushing toward
a collision with Islamist
opponents demanding
the return of the nation's
ousted president.
But there was wide-
spread uncertainty over
the army's intentions -
and worry that the mili-
tary is whipping up a dan-
gerous populist fervor.
Gen. Abdel-Fattah 'el-
Sissi, who ousted Egypt's
elected president on July
3, took many by surprise
when he announced this
week that he wanted peo-
ple to take to the streets
in large numbers on Fri-
day to give him,a popular
mandate to take the nec-
essary measures against
"violence and terrorism."
El-Sissi's call was widely
interpreted as a prelude to
a crackdown on the Mus-
lim Brotherhood, the Is-
lamist group from which
the ousted Mohammed
Morsi hails, and other Is-
lamists who have been
camped out for about a
month at sit-ins in Cairo
and elsewhere calling for

City where protesters have Installed their camp and hold their daily rally in Cairo, Egypt.


Morsi's reinstatement.
That has hiked fears of
a violent confrontation.
Islamists also plan pro-
Morsi rallies on Friday,
raising the possibility of
street clashes, as has hap-
pened repeatedly in re-
cent weeks.
Islamists on Thursday
lashed out at the mili-
tary, saying el-Sissi's call
signals a plan 0to crush
what they insist are their
peaceful protests. The
spiritual leader of the
Brotherhood, Moham-
med Badie, hiked up his


rhetoric against el-Sissi,
saying ousting Morsi was
a worse crime than if the
general had destroyed the
Kaaba, Islam's holiest site
- an attempt to fire up
the religious fervor in the
pro-Morsi camp ahead of
Friday's rallies.
On the other side, state
TV and pro-military pri-
vate networks were doing
their part to back el-Sissi:
They announced that the
wildly popular mini-series
shown during the current
holy month of Ramadan
will not be aired Friday to


ensure that large numbers
go out onto the streets.
Some of them were airing
patriotic songs.
Still unclear is what ex-
actly el-Sissi meant by
seeking a mandate against
violence and how far
the military would go.
The most explosive move
would be if troops were
to eventually try to clear
major Islamist sit-ins. The
largest has been outside
Cairo's Rabaa al-Adawiya
mosque, where crowds
some nights have grown
to tens of thousands.


Crashes raise questions about Europe's railroads


The Associated Press

THE HAGUE, Nether-
lands -I Two deadly rail-
road accidents inside two
weeks that claimed 80 lives
in Spain and six in France
have raised questions
about train safety across
Europe. But experts say
rail travel remains one of
the safest forms of trans-
*port on the continent.
- From Communist-era
trains in parts of east-
em Europe to modem
high-speed TGVs hurtling
through the French coun-
tryside, Europe has a vast
array of trains but among
the highest safety rates in
the world, experts say.

"Accidents like this are
incredibly rare," Sirn Har-
ris, managing editor of
Rail News in Britain, said
Thursday.
Spain, which was

has a better-than-averag6
safety record, said Chris
Carr,'1head of the. Euro-
pean Railway Agency's


safety unit.
Figures compiled by the
European. Union show
railway accident figures
shrinking .steadily' by
about 6 percent a year in
the 28-nation bloc, total-
ing a 70-percent reduction
in the accident rate from
1990-2012.
Even so, a May report by
the EU's railway agency
says that around -2,400
"significant" accidents
occur each year. The vast
majority, however, involve
collisions with cars at lev-
el crossings and people
- often suicide victims
being hit by trains.
Those incidents kill some
1,200 people a year, the


report says.
"If you put together the
figures of suicides, unau-
thorized persons and level
crossing users, they dwarf
all other fatalities. They
account for nearly all of
them," Carr said.

would be advised that the

and would be responsible
for notifying Henry of
such an order and follow-

In his presentation to
the planning commission,
Henry said he was not
aware that there was a land
use issue when he opened
the warehouse, establish-
ing it there after shutting
down his businesses at
the other location. He said
further that he had ob-
tained his business license
through the Florid Divi-
sion of Alcohol Beverage
and Tobacco. That license
aside, county staff and the
planning commission say
that local authorization is
also required for the land
use change he seeks on
paper. Documentation
of planning commission
meetings indicate that he
has, ih effect, already put
an unauthorized land use
change into play.
County planning staff
described the surrounding
uses as timber land, pas-
ture land residential in na-
ture and say that the ware-
house does not meet any
of the 'ag 2' designations
that would make it a comn-


patible use. Compatibility
is a requirement in code if
a land use change is to be
granted. Such change, if
granted and subsequently
challenged within 30 days,
would also have to meet
state approval. A devel-
opment order would also
have to be obtained for the
warehouse.
Some neighbors say they
are disturbed by lights
from the rigs that bring
the bulk tobacco con-
tainers that Henry breaks
down and redistributes,
but Henry says he has few
trucks coming in, and indi-
cated those make daytime
deliveries. He disagrees
that his business creates
a nuisiance, causes pollu-
tion, compromises safety
or consitututes a noise
disturbance, all of which
the neighbors allege and
say they fear will increase
over time. The warehouse
is situated on a 50-acres
parcel; although it cur-
rently occupies less than
an acre of that land, neigh-
bors say they're afraid the
business will grow beyond
that size.
Pressed to say when
they will take the matter
up again, county com-
missioners indicated they
would address it again at
their next regular meeting,
which is scheduled for the
second Tuesday morning
of August, beginning at 9
a.m.

Former New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez appears during a probable cause
hearing at Attleboro District Court on Wednesday In Attleboro, Mass.


The Associated Press
GAINESVILLE The Florida Gators are
no longer celebrating Aaron Hernandez.
The University Athletic Association,
which funds the school's athletic pro-
grams, has removed all references to Her-
nandez in and around the football stadi-
um. The latest and most public one came
Thursday when construction workers
pulled up a granite plaque commemorat-
ing Hernandez as a first team All-America
selection in 2009. The brick was cemented
into the ground outside Ben Hill Griffin
Stadium.
"We didn't feel it was appropriate to


celebrate Aaron Hernandez," the UAA
said in a statement. "We put together an
immediate plan after the initial news
broke to remove his likeness and name
in various private and public areas in
the facility, such as the South End Zone
team area, locker room, football offices,
Heavener Complex Kornblau Lobby and
the brick display entrance to the football
facility.
"We were able to implement some of
the changes immediately, and this (brick
removal) was a more complex process to
complete with bur vendors."

'The Associated Press
MIAMI James Jones hopped out of the
swimming pool after frolicking for a good half-

declared himself set for the day on the cardio-
workout front.
Whatever work he does this summer might
wind up paying off next winter.
There's one less elite shooter on the Miami
Heat roster these days, after the team decided
to designate Mike Miller as its amnesty player
and freeing itself of what he would have cost the
team in terms of salary-cap space (nearly $13
million) and luxury-tax payments (somewhere
around $40 million) over the next two seasons.
That means Jones may have a broader role
this coming season, and while even he isn't sure
what will happen, the veteran guard plans to be
ready.
"The only expectation I have is that we'll come
into camp motivated, extremely competitive
and that whoever plays will have to earn their
minutes," Jones said at a 'Learn to swim' event
the Heat hosted for children in downtown Mi-
ami. "I know the Heat will look at ways to im-

TAMPA-- Darrelle Revis is a three-
time All-Pro and generally regarded
as the best cornerback in the NFL,
yet Tampa Bay's $96 million man
was nervous before his first training


camp practice with his new team.
The seventh-year pro took the field
Thursday for the first time since tear-
ing the anterior cruciate ligament in
his left knee with the New York Jets
last September and since the big off-
season trade that brought him to the
Buccaneers for the 13th overall pick
in this year's draft.
Although he was limited to mostly
defensive and position drill work,
Revis considered the day a signifi-

Falcons, Ryan agree on contract extension


The Associated Press
FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. Pro
Bowl quarterback Matt Ryan and
the Atlanta Falcons have agreed
to terms op a five-year contract
extension.
'Falcons spokesman Reggie
Roberts said Thursday that the
deal was being finalized as Ryan
led the offense through prac-
tice Thursday on the first day of
training camp.
A person familiar with the
situation says Ryan's extension
is for $103.75 million deal, with
$59 million guaranteed. The
person says Ryan will average
$20.75 million during the first
three years of the extension. The
person spoke to The Associated


Press on condition of anonym-
ity because the terms of the deal
had not been announced.
"I've always not worried about
the business side of it," Ryan said
at a press conference Thursday
evening. "I've always thought as
a player if you're worrying about
those sorts of things, you're tak-
ing away from what you're here
for.
"I think for the most part I was
confident that it would get done
in a timely fashion. I think both
sides were. I didn't stress about it
too much."
Ryan, 28, is entering the sixth
and final season of his original
rookie contract and will earn a
$10 million salary.
Ryan, the NFL's No. 3 overall


draft pick of 2008, last season
was invited to the Pro Bowl for
the second time. He completed
68.6 percent of his passes, tops
in the NFL. ,

Marlins top Rockies


The Associated Press

DENVER Rob Brantly scored on
a wild pitch to break up a scoreless
game in the eighth inning, Dono-
van Solano homered in a four-run
ninth, and the Miami Marlins over-
came a 93-minute rain delay to
beat the Colorado Rockies 5-3 on
Thursday.
The Rockies, who dropped three
of four to the Marlins, igst slugger
Carlos Gonzalez after the third in-
ning when he aggravated a sprain
of the middle finger on his right
hand. He is day to day.
Gonzalez has been dealing with
the injury since July 7 when he


initially sprained his finger during
an at-bat against Arizona. He ag-
gravated it striking out swinging in
the first inning and was replaced by
pinch-hitter Jordan Pacheco.
Reliever Adam Ottavino (0-2)
struck out the first two batters he
faced in the eighth before Brantly
singled to right. Greg Dobbs, bat-
ting for reliever Dan Jennings (1-1)
singled him to third. With Adeiny
Hechavarria at the plate, Ottavino
uncorked a pitch that bounced in
the dirt and shot past catcher Wilin
Rosario, allowing Brandy to score.
In the ninth, Giancarlo Stanton
had an RBI double, and Ed Lucas
added an RBI single off Wilton Lo-


pez before Solano drove the first
pitch he saw into the left field seats
for his second homer of the season.
The Rockies rallied off Kevin Slow-
ey for three runs in the ninth. Steve
Cishek relieved, and after yielding
a one-out- single to Nolan Arenado,
he induced Jonathan Herrera to
ground into a game-endinrg double
play for his 20th save in 22 chances.
Miami starter Nathan Eovaldi
threw six scoreless innings, and
Colorado's Juan Nicasio had a sea-
son-high nine strikeouts in seven
scoreless innings. Neither pitcher
returned after the delay caused by
wind-driven thunder showers in
the middle of the seventh.


Thumb injury sidelines Marlins' Ozuna


The Associated Press

DENVER Miami Marlins rookie
outfielder Marcell Ozuna will miss
the rest of the season because of a
left thumb injury.
Ozuna was placed on the 15-day
disabled list retroactive to Tues-
day and was scheduled to undergo
surgery Friday in Miami. He was
playing center field at Colorado
on Monday when he sustained the
injury torn ligaments and an
avulsion fracture making a div-
ing catch on a sixth-inning drive by
Michael Cuddyer.
Ozuna remained in the game, and
afterward, was initially optioned
to Double-A Jacksonville. With the
thumb still bothering him, how-
ever, he traveled first to Miami to
have team doctors examine him
and they learned of the severity of
the injury on Wednesday.
"It's a minimum 6-8 weeks, then
you have to ramp up from there,"
Marlins manager Mike Redmond
said. "So, we're going to run ouft'of
time this season ....

With 16-year veteran
Ronde Barber on the verge
of retirement, Schiano and
Dominik launched their
effort to overhaul a porous'
secondary by signing All-

to a five-year, $41.5 million
contract in free agency.
Then they traded for Revis,
who was unhappy with his
contract in New York, and
gave him a six-year, $98
million deal.
"Our expectations are
very high," Revis said.
"This is a new beginning
for this team."
A fresh start Revis wasn't
sure he'd get while he was

New York Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez watches from the dugout during Game
championship series against the Detroit Tigers in Detroit on Oct. 18,2012.


THEASSOCIATED PRESS FILE

Source: Yankees plan A-Rod


discipline over doctor visit


The Associated Press
NEWYORK Already in trouble
with Major League Baseball, Alex
Rodriguez now faces a penalty from
his own team.
The New York Yankees intend to
discipline A-Rod foi seeking a sec-
ond medical opinion on his injured
leg without their permission, a per-
son familiar with the team's delib-
erations said Thursday.
SThe exact penalty had not been
determined, the person said,
speaking on condition of anonym-
ity to The Associated Press because
no statements were authorized. A
fine appeared to be the most likely
option.
The person also said that dur-
ing a conference call Thursday, the
Yankees and Rodriguez agreed to a


timetable that would have the third
baseman resume minor league re-
habilitation games or simulated
games next Thursday.
Rodriguez, who has been side-
lined since hip surgery in January,
issued a statement earlier in the day
saying he wanted to be activated for
Friday's homestand opener against
Tampa Bay. But that apparently
wasn't in the Yankees plans.
MLB has been investigating Ro-
driguez as part of its probe of the
closed Biogenesis clinic in Florida,
accused in 'media reports of dis-
tributing banned performance-en-
hancing drugs. A suspension ap-
pears likely, but Rodriguez could ask
the players' association to contest a
drug penalty -' making it possible
he might not have to serve any time
until next year.


Rodriguez hasn't played a game in
the majors this season.
Meantime, his return from hip
surgery in January has created more
drama than most players experi-
ence in their entire careers.
Seemingly days away from rejoin-
ing the Yankees, Rodriguez injured
his left quadriceps last weekend and
was sent to New York for an MRI on
Sunday. Team physician Dr. Chris-
topher Ahmad diagnosed a grade 1
strain, the least severe level.
Dr. Michael Gross, the orthopedic
director of The Sports Medicine In-
stitute at Hackensack (N.J.) Univer-
sity Medical Center, was retained by
Rodriguez and said on radio station
WFAN on Wednesday that he exam-
ined an MRI and could not detect
pn injury. Gross also said he never
examined Rodriguez personally.

Sauers leads Senior

British Open

after 1st round


The Associated Press
SOUTHPORT, England
- Gene Sauers mastered
a stiff breeze to shoot a 3-
under 67 Thursday for a
one-stroke lead after the
first round of the Senior
British Open.
The 50-year-old Ameri-
can had all pars on the
front nine for a 34 at sunny
Royal Birkdale. He then
birdied the 10th and bo-
geyed the llth. His three
successive birdies from the
15th left him at 33 for the
back nine.
"I hit a lot of solid shots
in the wind, so it didn't
really mess with me too
much," Sauers said. "I'm
really pleased with the way
I played. This is only my
third British Open and it's
a great privilege and honor
to be here."
Four players were at 68,
among them. 2010 British
Senior Campion Bern-
hard Langr. The German
was joined by South Afri-
ca's David Frost, Australia's
Peter Senior and Frankie
Minoza of the Philippines.
Only 10 of the 144 players
bettered par.
Sauers is'-23rd on the
Champions Tour money
list and has made 11 cuts
from 11 starts this year
with two second-place fin-
ishes and a third.
At 69 were former U.S.
Ryder Cup captain Corey
Pavin and fellow Ameri-
cans Gary Hallberg, John
Cook and Jeff Hart as well
as Australia's Peter Fowler.
Defending champion
Fred Couples and Mark
O'Meara, who won the
1998 British Open at Birk-


dale, shot 74s. Colin Mont-
gomerie, their playing
partner and a senior rook-
ie, was two strokes better.
Tom Kite, Steve pate,
Mark Wiebe, Rocco Medi-
ate, Steve Jones and Tom
Pernice Jr. were among
a large group at 70 along
with Scotland's Sandy Lyle,
Ireland's Mark McNulty
and New Zealand's Greg
Turner.
SLanger birdied three of
his last four holes.
"I was very pleased with
my long game and finally
the putter started working
at the end," he said.
Frost picked up a birdie
at the sixth to be out in 33.
He birdied No. 10 to go 2
under but then dropped
shots at the 13th and 16th
before an eagle at the
long 17th got him back in
35.
Senior moved to 3 un-
der with birdies at Nos. 10,
11 and 17 but dropped a
stroke at the last hole.
"I think there will be a lot
of good scores out there,"
Senior said. "The course
is playing nice and it gives
you a lot of opportunity."
Minoza fought back from
4 over after just three holes
to post the early clubhouse
lead at 68. He had birdies
on Nos. 10, 14, 15, 16 and
18 to finish the back nine
in 31.
Cook was undone by a
double-bogey at the last
hole, turning a potential 67
into a 69.
"It was one of those ter-
rible mistakes that you
make and learn from: But
I'm pleased to be under
par in a major champion-
ship," he said.

Braves' Hudson out for season


The Associated Press

NEW YORK Tim Hud-
son is out for the season
with a broken right ankle,
leaving the Atlanta Braves
without the leader of their
pitching staff as they make
a push for the pennant.
The team said Hudson
will have 'season-ending
surgery in Atlanta once
the swelling subsides. The
right-hander was injured
Wednesday fight when
Eric Young Jr. of the New
York Mets inadvertently
stepped on the back of
Hudson's Jower right leg
while the pitcher was cov-
ering first basp.
'I think we've got to rally
behind this, as a team and
as a pitching staff," Braves
manager Fredi Gonzalez
said Thursday. "We're go-
ing to miss him, but we've
got a good club."
Atlanta placed Hudson
on the 15-day disabled
list and recalled rookie
left-hander Alex Wood
from Triple-A Gwinnett
to start against the Mets.
Wood pitched in place of
Paul Maholm, who has a
bruised left wrist.


IHE ASSOCIATED PRESS
The Atlanta Braves'Tim Hudson is helped by a trainer after being Injured on a play at first base
during a game against the New York Mets on Wednesday In New York.


The NL East leaders had
planned to put Maholm
on the DL, but Hudson's
injury opened a roster spot
for Wood instead. Maholm
could still end up on the
disabled list, butmie Braves
decided to keep him active
for now tq see how quickly


his condition improves.
Brandon Beachy is ex-
pected to replace Hudson
in the rotation Monday
night against Colorado.
"I dor't think you can
replace Timmy, what he
means to us," Gonzalez
said. "We'll have a young


rotation, but hell, you
know what? We've got to
grow up sooner or later."
Beachy, sidelined since
undergoing Tommy John
surgery in June 2012, threw
86 pitches in a rehab start
Wednesday night for Gwin-
nett and appears ready to


return. He allowed two hits
and four walks over six in-
nings in a 3-1 loss to Dur-
ham, and Gonzalez said
the Braves received good
reports about Beachy's
stuff..
The 26-year-old right-
hander is 12-10 with a 3.07
ERA in 41 major league
starts. He is 1-4 with a 3.00
ERA in seven starts cover-
ing 30 innings for Gwin-
nett this season.
The timing hardly could
have been worse for Hud-
son, who was pitching his
best baseball of the sea-
son in the final year of his
contract.
Atlanta entered Thurs-
day with an eight-game
cushion over Philadelphia
in the NL East, by far the
largest margin in any di-
vision. So the 38-year-old
Hudson, who has never ad-
vanced past the first round
of the playoffs, appeared to
have an excellent chance
at a trip to the World Series
with his hometown team.
Maybe his last one, too.
A three-time All-Star with
205 career wins, Hudson
was born in Georgia and
grew up in Alabama root-


ing for the Braves. He was
traded from Oakland to
Atlanta in December 2004
and has provided a steady
presence throughout his
nine-year tenure.
"Anytime you lose a play-
er his caliber, it's a tough
pill to swallow," All-Star
catcher Brian McCann said.
"He's a top-of the-rotation
pitcher for us, and it's going
to be hard to replace him.
But at the same time, guys
are going to need to step
up and fill in."
McCann thinks Atlanta
has young starters who
can do that in Kris Medlen,
rookie Julio Teheran and
25-year-old lefty Mike
Minor.
"These guys have been
growing up for awhile now.
I mean, they've been taking
huge steps forward," Mc-
Cann said. "We've got guys
in place that are capable of
winning big games."
Hudson's wife and one
of his daughters were at
the game when he got
hurt. The pitcher was -not
at Citi Field on Thursday,
but planned to fly back to
Atlanta with the team after
the game.

: What's in my lunch box today, Mom?

SIt's a headache for some, and fun for others, but packing lunches is an unavoidable part
of the new school year. For the next 200 school days, your children will need to fill their
Lunch boxes with foods that give them the energy to learn, run, and have fun all day.
0
SVariety is an important factor in stimulating the appetites and interest of children.
Colourful meals, different foods, and fun packaging can make all the difference. Advance
Planning is essential in order to avoid repeating the same formula over and over again in
Sthe rush to get out of the house every morning.
: Select a variety of breads at the grocery store or the bakery. Pitas, clabatta, and coloured
tortillas can add a touch of variety. Choose different fillings from one day to the next.
-- Cold cuts, cheeses, and vegetables and
sauces (mayonnaise, mustard, yogurt) can
result, in an infinite number of possibilities.
Children will appreciate this variety as long
as the final result is appetizing.
*: And for mornings when you're In more of a
rush than, usual, why not offer them finger
* foods, such as cubes of meat and cheese,
* ,vegetable sticks, crackers, and some.fruit?
* Children love being able to choose what to
* eat and this way they'll have lots of choice'
Lastly, if microwave ovens are available to
Q them at school, offer your children soups or
0 supper leftovers. In fact, when cooking your
evening meafs, prepare a little extra just for
the lunch boxes the next day.
, The key to interesting and appetizing,
-'lunches is more variety.

NEA Crossword Puzzle


Annie's Mailbox


. Der Amne A year ago, our son, "Don,"
discovered that his wife of eight years
was cheating on him. It came as a shock
to all of us. Don was devastated and
angry, and quickly divorced his wife
and got full custody of their three young
children. He sold their home and bought
one closer to us. It was obvious that he
wanted to punish her. Our tight-knit
family offered to help in any way.
Don's ex-wife, a woman we loved and
cherished, became Public Enemy No. 1.
She tried to call us a few times, but Don
told the family, politely, that we should
not answer her calls, and if she knocked
on the door, we shouldn't open it. He said
it would be best for him and his kids if we
ignored her. I said I would do my best.
The problem is, I have been in commu-
nication with Dofn's ex. (Her lover broke
things off after Don found out.) She sees
me as her only friend: Don won't let her
near the children. He says he doesn't
want them to think cheating is OK. She
was so depressed, I couldn't turn her
down.


Bridge


Bridge players should always keep their eyes
on entries. It is easier for declarer, who can see
all of his assets. But for the defenders,,it is no use
having winners ready to be cashed if that player
does not have an entry card to gain the lead.
In this deal, how should East hope to defeat
three no-trump afterWest leads a fourth-highest
spade four?
When the dummy comes down, East should
count up the points. South showed 15-17, dum-
my has 12, and East holds 10. That leaves only 1-
3 for West. If West has king-fifth of spades, there
is no danger. But if West has only the spade jack,
he cannot have an entry card in another suit.
East must reject the usual defense of winning
with the spade ace (third hand high) and re-
turning the queen. South would duck, take the
third spade, and run the club queen tO collect an
overtrick.
' Instead, East must smoothly play his spade
queen at trick one.
Yes, if South ducks, he makes his contract. But
why would he? That would be suicidal ifWest has
the spade ace-jack and club king. Instead, South
will win the first trick and take the club finesse.
But East wins with his king, cashes the spade
ace, and leads his last spade for down one.


If Don found out we were in touch, he
would be furious and would never trust
me again. My husband wants me to cut
off ties.with her, but she is so helpless
and sad. What do I do?
S .- CONFUSED GRANDMA
Dear Grandma: Please stop lying to your
son. Either tell him the truthor cease
communication with your ex-daughter-
in-law. However, it is terribly wrong of
Don to prevent his ex from seeing the
children. He is still angry and hurt, but
in punishing her, he is also punishing
them. They need their mother.They will
not mistake her presence for approval
to cheat. The divorce is sufficient for
them to understand how destructive her
behavior was.
Please urge him to put his kids first and
work out a civil relationship with their'
mother. They may otherwise grow up
feeling abandoned and angry, and if they
ever learn that it was Dad who kept Mom
away, they may never forgive him. If he
needs counseling to reach that point,
encourage him to get it.


Horoscopes
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)
- Usually, you are single-
minded in your plans. To-
day, however, you could
muddle your affairs by in-
volving yourself in several
projects.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
- Favors that you request
today could either be ig-
nored or carried out poorly
by associates.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23)
- By including too many
people in your plans today,
your endeavors could be
overshadowed by everyone
else wanting to follow their
own ideas.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov.
22) Unfortunately, if
you're not careful, you
could get caught smack in
the middle of a situation
where you have to please
everybody.
SAGITARMIUS (Nov. 23-Dec.
21) Even if your strong
vievs are diametrically op-
posed to those of your col-
leagues, allow your intellec-
tual adversaries a chance to
express their thoughts.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-
Jan. 19) You're right to
Sbe wary of a promotional
scheme presented to you
by an entrepreneur with a
poor track record.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb.
19) There will be an
eventual day of reckoning
if you don't guard against
impulses to make commit-
ments that you never in-
tend to follow through on.
PISCES (Feb.20-March20)
To use your time produc-
tively, you must first have
a feasible, effective game
plan and then stick to it.
ARIES (march 21-April 19)
Without thinking, you
could allow an associate to
lay claim to some of your
resources.
TAURUS (April 20-May
20) Although you might
get off to a good start by
knuckling down to busi-
ness, favorable results
are questionable because
you could let up just
when the finish line is in
sight.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20)
Just because a friend has
an idea, don't automati-
cally give it credence.
CANCER (June 21-July 22)
Being willing to work
hard is not the total an-
swer for achieving success
today.

A person whose substantial Interests are af-
fected by the proposed permitting decision
may petition for an administrative hearing in
accordance with Sections 120.569 and 120.57,
Florida Statutes (F.S.). The petition must con-
tain the Information set forth below and must
be filed (received) in the Permitting Authority
at 160 W. Government Street, Suite 308, Pensa-
cola, Florida 32502-5794. Petitions filed by any
persons other than those entitled to written
notice under Section 120.60(3), F.S., must be
filed within 14 days of publication of the public
notice or within 14 days of receipt of the notice
of intent, whichever occurs first. Under Sec-
tion 120.60(3), F.S., however, any person who


F
Friday, July 26, 2013-9 B


asked the permitting authority for notice of
agency action may file a petition within 14
(fourteen) days of receipt of that notice, re-
gardless of the date of publication. A petition-
er shall mail a copy of the petition to the appli-
cant at the address indicated above, at the
time of filing. The failure of any person to file a
petition within the applicable time period shall
constitute a waiver of that person's right to re-
quest an administrative determination (hear-
ing) under Sections 120.569 and 120.57, F.S., or
to intervene in this proceeding and participate
as a party to it. Any subsequent intervention
will be only at the approval of the presiding of-
ficer upon the filing of a motion in compliance
with Rule 28-106.205, Florida Administrative
Code (F.A.C.).
All petitions filed under these rules shall con-
tain:.
(a) The name and address of each agency af-
fected and each agency's file or identification
number, if, known;
(b) The name, address, and telephone number
of each petitioner; the name, address and tele-
phone number of the petitioner's representa-
tive,'if any, which shall be the address for serv-
ice purposes during the course of the proceed-
ing; and an explanation of how the petitioner's
substantial interests will be affected by the
agency determination;
(c) A statement of how and when each peti-
tioner received notice of the agency decision;
(d) A statement of disputed issues of material
fact. If there are none, the petition must so in-
dicate;
(e) A concise statement of the ultimate facts
alleged, including the specific facts the peti-
tioner contends warrant reversal or modifica-
tion of the agency's proposed action;
-(f) A statement of the specific rules or statutes
the petitioner contends require reversal or
modification of the agency's proposed action,
including an explanation of how the alleged
facts relate to the specific rules or statutes;
and,
(g) A statement of the relief sought by the peti-
tioner, stating precisely the action petitioner
wishes the agency to take with respect to the
agency's proposed action.
A petition that does not dispute the material
facts upon which the permitting authority's ac-
tion is based shall state that no such facts are
'in dispute and otherwise shall contain the
same information as set forth above, as re-
quired by Rule 28-106.301, F.A.C.
Because the administrative hearing process is
designed to formulate final agency action, the
filing of a petition means that the permitting
authority's final action may be different from
the position taken by it in this notice of intent
Persons whose substantial interests will be af-
fected by any such final decision of the permit-
ting authority on theapplication(s) have the
right to petition to become a party to the pro-
ceeding, in accordance with the requirements
set forth above.
Mediation is not available for this proceeding.
EPA has agreed to treat the Draft/Proposed Ti-
tle V Air Operation Permit Revision as a Pro-
posed Title V Air Operation Permit Revision and
to perform its 45-day review provided by the
law and regulations concurrently with the pub-
lic comment period, provided that the appli-
cant also transmits an electronic copy of the
required proof of publication directly to EPA at
the following email address: oquendo.ana@ep
amail.epa.gov.. Although EPA's 45-day review
period will be performed concurrently with the
public comment period, the deadline for sub-
mitting a citizen petition to object to the EPA
Administrator will be determined as if EPA's
45-day review period is performed after the
public comment period has ended. The Final
Title V Air Operation Permit Revision will be is-
sued after the conclusion of the 45-day EPA re-
view period so long as no adverse comments
are received that result in a different decision
. or significant change of terms or conditions.
The status regarding EPA's 45-day review of
this project and the deadline for submitting a
citizen petition can be found at the following
website address: http://www.epa.gov/region4
/air/permits/florida.htm.
In addition to the above, pursuant to 42 United
States Code (U.S.C.) Section 7661d(b)(2), any
person may petition the Administrator of the
EPA within 60 days of the expiration of the Ad-
ministrator's 45-day review period as estab-
lished at 42 U.S.C. Section 7661d(b)(1), to ob-
ject to issuance of any permits. Any petition
shall be based only on objections to the per-
mits that were raised with reasonable specific-
ity during the 30-day public comment period
provided in this noticee, unless the petitioner
demonstrates to the Administrator of the EPA
that it was impracticable to raise such objec-
tions within the comment period or unless the
grounds for such objection arose after the
comment period. Filing of a petition with the
Administrator of the EPA does not stay the ef-
fective date of any permit properly issued pur-
suant to the provisions of Chapter 62-213,
F.A.C. Petitions filed with the Administrator of
EPA must meet the requirements of 42 U.S.C.
Section 7661d(b)(2) and must be filed with the
Administrator of the EPA at: U.S. EPA, 401 M
Street, S.W., Washington, D.C. 20460.

announced a multi-year
branding deal Thursday
that will immediately
change the name of bil-
lion-dollar Cowboys Sta-
dium to AT&T Stadium.
An emotional Jerry
Jones, the team's owner
and general manager, said
he wants "this building to
be more familiar than the
White House."
The name change for the
$1.2 billion Cowboys Sta-
dium takes effect imme-
diately. Numerous signs
outside and inside the
stadium will be changed
to reflect the name of the
,telecommunications gi-
ant based in nearby Dallas.

The deal comes ahead of
major events to be hosted
by AT&T Stadium, includ-
ing the 2014 NCAA men's
Final Four and in 2015 the
first college football title
game under a new playoff
format.
Jones acknowledged
the pact with AT&T is not
"the most in dollars that
there has been for naming
rights."'
He didn't refer to any
other NFL team but the
San Francisco 49ers in
May announced a 20-year
naming-rights agreement
with Leyi Strauss and
Co. amounting to $220
million.


Arlington Mayor Robert
Cluck, whose city is home
to the complex, saidArling-
ton each year will receive
5 percent of the revenue
from the naming rights,
declining to say just how
much. He said the revenue
will allow Arlington to pay
off in 15 years the debt
incurred to help build the
stadium four years ago. Of-
ficials originally planned a
30-year debt package.
AT&T spokesman Larry
Solomon said there are
no plans to release the de-
tails of the agreement with
the Cowboys. He said the
telecom was eager to affix
its name to the "premier
sporting venue in the na-
tion, if not the world."
"It's a terrific brand and
marketing opportunity for i
us," he said.

i ARLINGTON, Texas
,- The way Mariano Ri-
vera helped kick the Texas
Rangers out of the play-
offs, their parting gift was
appropriate.
The Rangers honored Ri-
vera before his final regu-.
lar-season game in Texas,
presenting baseball's ca-
reer saves leader with a pair
of cowboy boots inscribed
with the NewYork Yankees
logo, his name and No. 42.
He was also given a cow-
boy hat before Thursday's
series finale, and the team
donated a $5,000 check for
the Mariano Rivera Foun-
dation that helps needy
children.
The boots were present-
ed by John Wetteland, who
before becoming the Rang-
ers' career saves leader was
the Yankees closer and was
set up by Rivera during
their 1996 World Series
championship season.
"Who knew that this
wide-eyed kid would be-
come the greatest closer
in history? If you look back
in retrospect, it makes
sense," Wetteland said. "I
never saw anybody who
paid so much attention to
detail. He would-sit there
quiet, but he would know
what was being said. Now
I tell him, 'You never said
a word, you're always just
looking at people,' and
he says, 'I was taking it
in.'"
Rivera has pitched 14
scoreless innings in 10 play-
off appearances against
the Rangers, including two
saves in both the 1998 and
'1999 AL division series the
Yankees swept in three
games each. The only play-
off game he has pitched
Against Texas that the Yan-


kees lost was Game 6 of the
AL championship series in
2010, when he threw one
perfect inning in the game
the Rangers won to clinch
their first World Series
berth.
The hat was brought out
by Rangers closer Joe Na-
than, who had the save in
list week's All-Star game
after Rivera pitched the
eighth. Rivera slipped the
black hat over' his Yan-
kees cap to pose for pic-
tures with Wetteland and
Nathan.
Hall of Fame pitcher and
major league strikeout king
Nolan Ryan, the Rangers
CEO, helped present the
check to Rivera.
"Dominant. Profession-
al. Ambassador," Rangers
manager Rpti Washington
said,, describing Rivera be-
fore the gime.', Automatic,
and any Itpe of adjec-
tive that you c"6an find to
describe "rhi in a bright,
bright, bright, bright light,
that's 'what you do. Class
act."
Before getting to consec-
utive World Series in. 2010
and 2011, the Rangers'
only other playoff appear-
ances had been in 1996,
1998 and 1999 all series
losses to the Yankees, who
went on to win the World
Series each time.
Texas catcher A.J. Pier-
zynski said Rivera with
his cutter "commands his
pitch that he does better
any anyone has done" and
should go down as the best
reliever of all-time.
"When I think of him,
I think of one pitch and
1-2-3 innings," said Rang-
ers reliever Jason Frasor,
who spent the past nine
seasons pitching for To-
ronto in the AL East vs. the
Yankees.
