ed on a felony charge of filing
false crop reports and is sched-,
uled for trial soon.
Charles Golden, 49, of Cotton-
dale, is set for a federal felony
criminal trial Aug. 12 in Tallahas-
see. Originally set for Aug. 5, the
trial date was shifted forward in
a subsequent continuance. He

was indicted on May 7, with of-
ficials alleging that he "know-
ingly compiled for issuance, and
issued, false Form FSA 578 acre-
age reports," according to a press
release.from the US Department
of Justice.
USDA officials would not dis-
close Golden's current status as
an employee and would not say
whether a specific person has
been tapped to carry, out his re-
sponsibilities either during the
trial period, or going forward
permanently. They said agency

Nearly $9.7 million local
tax dollars in play

The Jackson County School Board tenta-
Stively approved its proposed 2013-14 budget
on Tuesday, with a final vote expected several
weeks from now. The budget includes a total
ad valorem tax rate of 6.36 mills, a slight de-
crease from last year's tax rate of 6.40. It is ex-
pected to generate $9,692,303 of the roughly
$77,224,651 that it will take to fund the school
system in the coming acadenfic year. The bulk
of the $77 million comes from state and fed-
eral resources.
The millage or ad valorem tax rate assessed
upon property owners is separated into six
elements. However, the school board elected
not to assess any millage in three of those half-
dozen subsections. The numbers that make
up this year's rate of 6.40 include a .37-mill
assessment which will be devoted to capital
outlay. That segment will account for an esti-
mated $563,863 of the total expected local tax
income of $9,692,303.
The lion's share of the total local millage is
made up of an element referred to as the re-
quired local effort. The minimum rate in that
category is set by the state and cannot be ad-
justed downward by the local board without
the district paying heavy penalties by way of
the state's power to withhold funds as a con-
sequence. It's at 5.24 mills this year, and is
expected to generate $7,988,531 of-the total
The other element of the millage that the
school board used is the basic discretion-
ary category. The board tentatively set it at
.748; the segment is expected to generate

NSA chief talks at hackers'

conference in Las Vegas

The Associated Press

LAS VEGAS The head
of the U.S. National Secu-
rity Agency defended the
government's much-criti-.
cized surveillance program
agairlst heck-
lers among
a crowd of
s y steem s
Alexander but also had.
a challenge
for them: If you don't like it,
lend your talent to build a
better one.
"You're the greatest tech
talent anywhere in the
world. Help us," Army Gen.
Keith Alexander said at the
hacker conference for the
buttoned-up corporate and
government security ana-
lyst crowd, not the one lat-
er in the week for the more
counter-culture types.
SAlexander spent much of
his 45-minute address ex-
plaining how government
methods used to collect
telephone and email data
helped foil 54 terror plots
since 1993. He was inter-
rupted at times by hecklers,
but also drew applause:
"Our nation takes stop-
ping terrorism as one of the
most important things,"
he said, standing in short
sleeveswith a slide on the
screenbehind him showing
a timeline and the number
Sof.foiled plots.
"Freedom!" one man
shouted from the middle of
the standing-room crowd:
"Exactly. And with that,
when you think about it,
how do we do that? Be-
cause we stand for free-
dom," Alexander said.
"Bulls-t," the heckler
"Not that," Alexander re-
plied before continuing his
keynote speech to the an-
nual Black Hat conference
at. Caesars Palace. Orga-
nizers said the conference
drew 7,000 people.
Alexander didn't refer
in his address specifically

He remained unapolo-
getic, denying another
heckler's claim that he lied
to Congress about.methods
the NSA uses to "connect
the dots" and "go after the
bad actors who mhy want
to do us harm."
"People say, 'I hear what
'you say, but I don't trust
that,'" Alexander said.
"H6w do we defend this
country? That is the ques-
tion," he said. "The nation
needs to know we're going
to do the right thing."
The four-star general,
who has headed the NSA
for eight years, said itwasn't
true the agency listens to
specific phone calls and
reads emails. He said "no

Alexander emphasized
oversight of his programs
by Congress, courts and the
administration, and posted
a slide of the type of broad
one-line "metadata" that
. he said the agency collects
from communications
abroad: Date, duration,
phone number calling,
phone number receiving,

and a note about the au-
thorizing entity.
"There are Ino names in
the database," he said. "No
addresses. No credit card
numbers. The database is
like a lockbox."
Alexander said the data
led to the disruption of 13
terror plots in the U.S., 25
in Europe, five in Africa
and 11 in Asia. -He spoke'
of a thwarted plot to bomb
the New York City subway
system in September 2009,
but didn't specify others.
"We get all these allega-
tions of, 'What they could
be doing,"' Alexander said.
"But when you check, like
the (congressional) intel-
ligence committees, they
find that hasn't happened.
Zero times." :
STed Doty, a computer
product security manager
and blogger from Atlanta,
said he wasn't convinced.
"The smart people know
that what's interesting is

said, referring to the links
between one caller and the
next. "That's what the NSA

ling well. He noted thai Al-

ter when a voice shouted
that'he should read the
Constitution. Alexander
said he had, and the heck-
ler should, too.

: How to help children who have been rejected :

SChildren who are beihd rejected by their peers are going through a terrible ordeal.
SIsolated, insulted, and ostracized, they often suffer in silence, and the consequences
can be dramatic. It is never easy for parents to help a child who is being rejected, but
Sit is possible.
Being different in some way is sometimes, the cause behind this rejection. At other
" times, there doesn't appear to be.,any logical explanation. Shyness, a nervous tic,
Speech difficulties,.obesity, or even having braces can be enough to set in motion the
Victimization process. Sometimes, all it takes is for children to ignore being made fun
Sof for the rejection to start, And yet, some children who stutter or who are obese will
never experience rejection. .

SChildren are best prepared'by receiving help in developing a certain amount of
Independence and social skills, which allow them to cope with their differences. Parents
Swho help their children from a young age to develop social skills are preparing them to
Sbe better able to defend themselves without resorting to violence (but rather through :
discussion or humor, for example). This also helps them to build their self-confidence.

SParents should listen to how their children have suffered and, above all, take them *
Seriously. The next step is to tell their teachers; school staff may be able to correct the0
situation through a class discussion
* where everyone can express
" themselves without fear of being
" judged. It is. vital to encourage rejected
" children to talk about their experience
* in order for them to escape their

She tluts her own track

But, unlike other Demo-

calling for Weiner to bow
out. Truth is, she may-not
want him to go anywhere.
Weiner's recent travails
have ended up giving
Quirin much more valu-

herself as the "adult" in

greeted Francis' election
with concern and now
is watching its worst fears
come true. Francis has

spch "resrqratist groups,"
which he accuses of being
navel-gazing retrogrades
out of touch with the


evangelizing mission of
the church in the 21st
century. :
His recent decision to
forbid priests of a religious
order from celebrating
the old Latin Mass with-
out explicit authorization
seemed to be abrogating
one of the big initiatives of
Benedict's papacy, a 2007
decree allowing broader
use of the pre-Vatican II
Latin liturgy for all who
want it, The Vatican de-
nied he was contradicting

Benedict, but these tra-
ditional Catholics see in
Francis' words and deeds
a threat. They are in some-
thing of a retreat.
"Be smart. There will be
time in the future for peo-
ple to sort what Vatican II
means and what it doesn't
mean," the Rev. John
Zuhlsdorf warned his tra-
ditionalist readers in a re-
cent blog post. "But mark
my words: If you gripe
about Vatican II right now,
in this present, environ-
ment, you could lose what
you have attained."
Even more mainstream
conservative Catholics
aren't thrilled with Francis.
In a recentinterviewwith
the National Catholic Re-
porter, Philadelphia Arch-
bishop Charles' Chaput
said right-wing Catholics
'"generally have not been
really happy" with Francis.
To besure. Francis has not
changed anything about
church teaching. Nothing
he has said or done is con-
trary to doctrine; every-
thing he has said and done
champions the Christian


concepts of loving the sin-
ner but not the sin and
having a church that is
compassionate, welcom-
Sing and merciful.
But tone and priorities
can themselves constitute
change, especially when
considering issues that
aren't being emphasized,
such as church doctrine
on abortion, gay marriage
and other issues frequent-
ly referenced by Benedict
and Pope John Paul II.
The Vatican newspaper,
L'Osservatore .'Romano,,
used the word "gay" for
* perhaps the first time in
its 150-year history on
Wednesday, in an article
marveling at the change
Francis has brought.
"In just a few words, the
noveltyhas been expressed
clearly and without
threatening the church's
tradition,'" the newspaper
said about Francis' com-
ments on gays and, wom-
en. "You can change ev-
er-ything without changing
the basic rules, those on
which Catholic tradition
are based."'

Pirates wrapping up productive summer session.


With two months of summer
workouts coming to a close and

away, the Sneads Pirates and
first-year coach Bill Thomas
are looking forward to the next
step in the process of preparing
for the season.
Sneads is coming off. of a 4-

After months of spring and
summer workouts in the hot

are more than ready for the ar-
rival of fall. ,
"Ready or not, it's here," he
said. "I think the kids are ready
to go. The summer program is
getting a little old, so they're

ready for fall practice."
The Pirates have spent most of
the summer lifting weights and
doing conditioning and agility
drills mixed in with working on
timing between quarterbacks
and receivers and competing
in seven-on-seven action.
The coach said that the en-
thusiasm of his players has
been great, but he Wants to see
an extra level of concentration
brought into the fall.
"They're 'willing," Thomas

worry about that going into the

'and doctors determine the
extent of the damage.
' Seattle coach Pete Car-
roll and offensive coordi-
nator Darrell Bevell were
not made available to the
local media on Wednes-
day to talk about Harvin's
status. Carroll did speak
with NFL Network follow-
ing practice-on Wednesday
and said the team believes
Harvin will be back this
"Now that we've taken in
all the information, Percy
does have a chance to get
back and we'll find that

out after the. procedure,"
Carroll told NFL Network.
"W.e'll kno^v What tooki
place and they'll make
kind of a guess how long
that will take him. We've
got to get him right, fixhim
up and take care of him: We.
made a big commitment
to Percy (and) we want to
make sure he's 100 percent
and ready to go." '
Harvin reported to train-
ing camp last week com-
plaining of soreness in his
hip and that led to a series
of exams. Harvin tweeted
Tuesday evening that he
would be undergoing sur-

gery after he got a second
Opinion on the injury.
While there isn't good
news for the Seahawks
with Harvin needing sur-
gery, it happened early
enough, in training camp
that Seattle has time to
make any needed changes
offensively to account for
his absence. That could
mean a bigger role forTate,
who believes he has com-
parable skills to Harvin's.
"The things that they
have, they intended on
him to do, I'll be more
than happy to do that,"'
.Tate said. "I want to get the
ball any way that I can and
I want to try and make a
play. I feel like I am really
similar to Percy."
The injury should open
up an extra roster spot at
least to begin the season
and give one of Seattle's
unproven young receivers
a chance to start the sea-
son on the active roster.
"We still have depth and
wve still have guys on this
team that haven't even'had
a chance to play football
yet on Sundays, and who
are more than capable of

,,, Cqinpelling questions .,.
',andbhiaybe a few actual answers

A couple of questions we
just had to ask ourselves

ue"ty liniag s/CHRIS GRATTHEN
Dirt roads are a fun diversion,
but not where NASCAR will
make its living.
Did the truck race at
Eldora look like some-
thing NASCAR should
try again?
GODSPEAK: I do believe the
truck series has found a magic
wand. Expect to see at least
two dates on dirt in 2014. The
other ries will stay tied to
KEN'S CALL In a perfect
world, yes, there'd be a couple
of dirt races in every series.
But the world isn't perfect
Did Ryan Newman win
a new contract with his
victory-at the Brickyard?
GODSPEAK: Newman is
too good not to have a ride.
Something will turn up and it
will be good. When one window
closes, another opens and all
that kind of stuff.
KEN'S CALL Not much chance
of Ryan Newman being out of
a job. But he might've just
escaped a potential Plan B
ride for next year.

Class of 2002

Every generation produces a special class of rookies
who grow into champions The previous top class was
1979 which included Harry Garint, Terry Labonle and Dale
Earnhardt. They combined lor nine NASCAR Cup Series
championships and well over 100 victories
Enter the Class of 2002, which is following a similar
track. Jimmie Johnson and Ryan Newman entered the cage
at the same timeand have been toe-to-toe ever since
Johnson had three wins his rookie year. while Newman
nabbed one and the Rookie of the Year honors Through
the years. Johnson has seen greater success five
championships and 64 wins Newman has finished top-
10 in points six times and won 17 races.
Which is why winning Sunday's Samuel
Deeds 400 at the Brickyard at Indianapolis
was extra- special-sweet for Newman
Not only did he win on his "home"
track Newman was born and raised
in Indiana but he beat Johnson,
who finished second. The margin
of victory was basically the time
difference in their last pit stops.
'There is definitely
disappointment there, but this
is racing, that stuff happens,"
Johnson said. "Ryan was fast all
day long I can't take anything away
from him."

SFundamental four
Jeff Gordon, Jeftl
Burton, Mark Martin
and Bobby Labonte
have a special bond that
has survived at least one
more season. They are
the only drivers who have
carted every Brickyard 400
since its 1994 inception
Cordon stands out among
this elite group with tour
victories and finished in the
top-1O Sunday at Indianapolis
Labonte won it in 2000 but was
36th Sunday Martin said his No. 55
Toyota was "ill" all day and finished
23rd Burton, who was running at the
finish, brought up the rear of the field.
Gordon and Burton will return based
on their current driving contracts, not so
sure about Martin and Labonte.

Indy oddities
Indianapolis is known for intense
racing and weird stuff happening around
the track. For instance. Jeff Burton's
crew chief Luke Lambert monitored
Sunday's race from inside the learn
hauler. Matt McCall, a team engineer,
sat on Burion's pit box during the race
The team said Lambert had an eye
ailment that made him sensitive to
And then there was the garage stall
of Jimmie Johnson's No. 48 Chevrolet.
In somewhat of a first, the stock car
could not be seen because it was
surrounded by partitions IJASCAR,
which has always had an "open garage"
policy, allowed the No. 48 to keep the
partitions up through the weekend.
Finally. Newman became the second
"lame duck" driver to win this season
Newman was pink-slipped by Stewart-
Haas Racing when the 2013 season
ends Kevin Harvick is the other duck in
the pond. He is leaving Ricrhard Childress
Racing at the end of '13. Where is he going?
To take Newman's place orn the Stewart
Haas driver roster

He had the crown for a day, but
Jimmie Johnson remains King of
I the Class of 2002.

DARK HORSE: Danica Patrick
FIRST ONE OUT: Michael McDowell
wins one of these next few Cup Series
races in a big way.

Newman will hit the bricks later, but first a'
How much horsepower is
a pink slip worth?
They've yet to develop a dyno to measure such
things, but apparently there's nothing that lights
a fire under a racer like pending unemployment
or, at least, the fear of losing that mqltiyear
contract. Through the years, it's been.conmmon
to see a racer find a burst ot speed when he's
rumored to be on thip ice or, in Ryan Newman's
case, playing out thestring on his current. ,
contract and hoping for another elsewhere-.-
Will Newman's Brickyard burst carry
Over to Pooho and beyod?
The best guess here: Don't bet on'it. For'"" '
whatever reason, his team found the
combination to Indy, and Newman is obviously
a capable drIver who can cash in on such
finds. But usually there's a reason a team has
been underperforming all season, so don't
look for long-range glory here. Meanwhile, let's
assume Newman is heavily courting his primary
sponsor Quicken Loans sinceboth.he and
crew chief Matt Borland were quick to thank--
Quicken during post-victory TV interviews.
Biggest news of the week?
That Ricky Stenhouse is a boarder. He's a
full-time Sprint Cup driver, and we learned fast
week that he rents a room at his accountant's
house near Charlotte. Renting a room? Even
an ARCA rookie would have his ovin place. But
an ARCA rookie wouldn't have Danica Patrick
rooming with him every now and then. And an
ARCA rookie wouldn't have Danica's Chicago
apartment as his bother option.

Ryan Neiwman vs. Jhnmnle Johnson: These
two have bumped heads since they were
rookies in 2002. Newman got the best of it
at Indy.
Godwin Kelly gives his take: "Beating
Johnson at Indy was a super-sweet.
satisfying moment for Newman."'
