Gun found
hidden in

toilet bowl
From staff reports
Jackson County resident Timo-
thy Coulliette has been charged'
with being a felon in possession
of a firearm. A neighbor reported
Seeing him firing
a gun Wednes-
day. Authorities
investigated and
found a,'.22-cali-
ber handgun hid-
den in the bottom
Coulliete of a toilet bowl
in a bathroom of
his mother's house at 1882 Tobe
Lane, where Coulliette had alleg-
edly been seen with the gun.
Investigators report that sev-
eral shell casings were found in
the yard outside the house, along
with a partial box of unfired am-
munition on the porch, of the
home. Those matched the cali-
ber of the handgun found in the
toilet, authorities say.:
In a case in March 2007, Coul-
liette was convicted of felony
battery; he was arrested after he
was accused of hitting another
man in his neighborhood with
a glass beer bottle. He entered a
no-contest plea and was placed
on probation. However, accord-
ing to court records, he violated
probation in 2008, was adjudi-
cated guilty and sentenced to
serve 18 months in prison.

for more than seven years for
defrauding investors in Alabama
and Florida out of $3 million.
U.S. District Judge Myron
,Thompson handed down, the
sentence Friday for 68-year-
old Edward Lincoln Forehand.
He was convicted of securities
fraud, mail fraud, wire fraud and
money laundering.
Prosecutors say Forehand used
the business name "USA Market-

people mainly in south Alabama
and the Florida Panhandle. He
told them the money was being
invested in a business that sold
cookware to colleges.
Prosecutors say Forehand

Bedsole a fixture

at produce stand
Along U.S. 231, in Jackson
County, Fla., there sits a small
produce stand with a large blue
sign resting on the tin roof that
reads "Florida Fruit" in 'faded
yellow letters.
This is the stand where Don
Bedsole has tirelessly worked for
the last 40 years.
"I was raised in a grocery store,"
Bedsole said. "My family owned
the store and I worked there
when I was young, so I guess it's

just in my blood.".
After serving in the military,
Bedsole had many jobs, includ-
ing his current post at the stand
where he has worked every sum-
Smer' since.
"We get our corn and peanuts
locally, and then we get our
peaches and onions from Geor-
gia," Bedsole said as he stood
at the counter with a floor fan
humming behind him. 'All of the
produce that's not grown around
here is brought in, I would
say about two or three times
a week."
Bedsole is always welcoming
to his visitors, some of whom
stop by regularly.
'A lot of people come around


'the holidays or on their way to
the coast, but some of the faces
become familiar after a while,"
Bedsole said. Though the stand
is open from Memorial Day until
the early days of autumn, Bed-
sole is able to keep himself oc-
cupiedin the offseason.
"I still have buddies who I'll
see around, and we all try to
stay busy," Bedsole said with a
smile. "We're not your traditional

School grading

system gets anF
M aybe the best thingthat can be said about the
school grades released lest week by the Florida
\ Department ofEducation is, they could have
been worse.
Had the state Board of EdcucatiQn not intervened
earlier this month and voted by the narrowest of
margins 4-3'=-to not allow any.school grade to
drop more than one letter grade, the report card would.
have been horrific. Howhorrific? If not for'the Board
of Education's inflating of the grades; the state would
have had 262 failing schools. Instead, it had only 108'
failing schools.
Here in Marion County, there were~no F schools,
thank goodness. Of the 41 elementary and middle
schools graded high school grades have riot yet been
issued -there were 13 D's, 14 C's and nine B's. Four
schools, all elementary schools, received A's. '
What do these grades mean? Well, frankly no one
from the Board of Education to the superintendent of
Marion County Pubife Schools is sure., .
Said Board of Education member Kathleen Shanahan
of Tampa, who as ex-Gov. Jeb Bush's one-timechief of
staff helped develop the system.... ,
"'No grading system that changes virtually eyery year,,.
Sand then is tinkered with every year to make it politi-
cally palatable, could possibly be considered valid."
The original purpose of the'.schot)l grades was to
measure academic progress of each student body,.
therefore giving policymakers aguide.tb where to.
direct necessary resources. ...
S,' An awful lot has come to ride on school grades since
they were' first devised during the Jeb Bush years..
SCareers and real estate values, not to mention students
and schools, rise and fall by school grades. Yet,.fewin
Sand out of education know for sure what a school grade
really means anymore in Florida.
'Florida's accountability system deserves ah F, and it is
time the Legislature and The Board of Education accept
responsibility for this public-policytrain wreck '

Regulators close

small Florida bank

The Associated Press

lators have closed a small
bank in Florida, bringing
the number of U.S. bank
failures to 17 this year.
The Federal Deposit
Insurance Corp. said Fri-
day that it has taken over
First Community Bank of
Southwest Florida, based
in Fort Myers, Fla.
The lender also operated
as Community Bank of
Cape Coral and had seven
First Community Bank
had about $265.7 million
inassetsand$254.2 million
in deposits as of March 31.
Cl Bank, based in St.
Petersburg, ,Fla., agreed
to assume all of the failed
banks depositsand to buy
essentially all its assets,
The failure of First Com-
munity Bank is expected to
cost tfie deposit insurance
fund $27.1 million.
The lender is the third
bank in Florida to fail this
year. '
U.S. bank failures have
been declining since they
peaked in 2010 in thewake
of the financial crisis and
the Great Recession.
In 2007, only three banks
went under., That number

jumped to 25 in 2008, after.
the financial meltdown..,
and ballooned to 140 in
In 2010, regulators seized
157 banks, the most in any
year since the savings and
loan crisis two decades
ago. The FDIC has said
2010 likely was the high-.
water mark for bank fail-
ures from the recession.
They declined to a total of
92 in2011 .,
- Last year, bank failures
slowed to 51 still more
than normal. In a strong
economy, an average of
'only four or five banks
close annually. I
The sharplyreduced pace
of bank closings shows sus-
tained improvement.
From 2008 through 2011,
bank failures cost the de-
posit insurance fund an
estimated $88 billion, and
the fund fell into the red in
2009. With failures slow-
ing, the fund's balance
turned positive in the sec-
ond quarter of 2011.
The fund had a $35.7 bil-
lion balance as of March
31, up from $32.9 billion at
the end of December.
The FDIC expects bank
failures from 2012 through
2016 willcost the fund $10

I these students it$s their
skin color, not their ,hard

work or perseverance that
will determine tieir suc-
cess in school," said Jerri
Katzerman, deputy legal
director of the Southern
Poverty Law Center.
The complaint says race-
based achievement goals
are unsound and imple-
ment self-fulfilling low ex-
pectations. The, filing of the
complaint was announced
at a news conference held
at the National Association
of Black Journalists' annual

convention in Orlando.
"I see no reason for Flor-
ida to set lower goals for
mie," said Robert Burns, a
,14-year-old Miami-Dade
student, who attended the
news conference. "I feel
as though the color of my
skin should not or will not
determine my future."
Florida received a
waiver of from having to
meet certain educational
benchmarks .established
in the federal No Child

Left Behind Act, which was
passed during the admin-
istration of President Bush
to raise academic achieve-
ment goals nationwide.
The waiver allowed Florida
education officials to craft
their own plan for improv-
ing academic achieve-
ment. The, plan sets the
expectation that 90 per-
cent of Asian American
students and 88 percent of
white students will read at
grade level by 2018. Those

same goals were only 81
percent for Hispanic stu-
dents and 74 percent for
black students, according
to the complaint.
The math goals were
that 92 percent of Asian
American students and 86
percent of white students
reach grade level by 2018.
Those same goals were 80
percent for Hispanic stu-
dents and 74 percent for
black students, the com-
plaint said.

Alabama did lose one

failed his physical. Sa-
ban, who said he couldn't

medically disqualified
but remains at Alabama
on scholarship.
He also said tight end
Malcolm Faciane is sus-
pended "for behavior
"He can return if he does
the things he's supposed
to do at some point in the
future," Saban said.
Six-foot-7, 270-pound
defensive, lineman LaMi-
chael Fanning is work-
ing at tight end at least
,temporarily.. Cyrus Jones,
who played wide receiver
as a freshman, has been
working at cornerback
since the spring. Dee Mil-
liner was the No. 9 pick by
the Jets.
Saban said Jones is pro-

ondary and "right now
that's where we're going
to try to develop Cyrus."
The coach said his mes-

S MIAMI- Greg Qden still
needs some time to get
ready for the rigors of play-
inginthe NBA.
S He -no longer needs a
new team, however.
The former, No. 1 over-
all draft pick has chosen
to sign with the'two-time
defending. NBA :cham-
pion Miami Heat, ending
months of suspense over
where the center' whose
career has been decimated
by a series of knee-prob-
Jems would be attempting
his comeback. The Heat
were long perceived as the
frontrunners to land Oden,
', and now have a 7-footer to
help them try for a third
straight title..
/ Mike Conley Sr., one of
Oden's agents, said Friday
night that the former Port-
land center accepted an of-
fer worth about $1 million
for this coming season and
would have a player option
for 2014-15.
"He just thought that it
was' the best fit for him,
where he's at and espe-
cially for how it relates to
him coming back," Conley
said. "He can be on a win-
ning team and be working
his way in slowly.",.
SThe contract is,expected
to be formally signed early
next week, Conley said. ,
"I think a 7-footer can
help any team," Heat point
guard Mario Chalmers
said. "They're hard to find.
I've known Greg since our
high school days, talked
to him a couple of, times
about this and you just
hope for the best."
Oden told ESPN.com on
Friday. night that he still
has "a lot of work to do."
And during their recruit-
ing process, the Heat were
obviously cognizant of
that. Oden has not played
in the NBA since fracturing
his lneecap in a game on
Dec. 5, 2009, but the Heat
surely will not'expect him

"The 'fact that Coach

Apparently, even he's ea-

Johnson ran for 957
yards in his debut season
on only 139 carries. He
was the only player in col-
lege football with at least
900 rushing yards and 800
kickoff-return yards a year
ago, which makes it easy
to see why he was touted
as one of the nation's best

thinks he's well-prepared
to 'handle a much bigger

athletic department-- it
is possible that the asso-
ciation's Committee on
Infractions may announce
in the next few days what
penalties, if any,. will be
levied against Miami -
the closest thing to an in-
house controversy seems
to be why Golden insists
on calling his running back

by his given name.
He calls him Randy and
not Duke, the name every-
one else uses.
'Am I the only one?-. I
thought it was his mom,"
Golden said. "I'll call bim

Strong's belief in me," Dyer
added. "I am not going to
let him dowvn."
Dyer, who attended high
school in Little Rock, ran
for more than 1,000 yards
in each of his two seasons
at Auburn, but left the
school after the 2011 sea-
son and transferred to Ar-
kansas State.
He never played for Ar-
kansas State after getting
suspended after a run-in
with the law, though he
was never charged with a
crime. Dyer was cited for
speeding, and a handgunfi
was improperly confiscat-
ed from the car by a state
Hill said Dyer had no is-
sues at Arkansas Baptist,
where he earned an asso-
ciate's degree.
S"We hold everybody ac-

school's policy, "but we

Lone female defendant

pleads in FAMU hazing case

self and my entire marching-band fam-
ily, no one intended on this happening,"
she said. "This truly changed our lives.
We're very, very and deeply sorry that
this happened."
A status hearing was also held Friday
for the remaining eight defendants in
the case. Attorneys for each asked Judge
Marc Lubet.to push back what he called
a "drop-dead date" for them tb accept or
reject plea offers from the prosecutor.
Lubet agreed to set that new date for
Oct. 4, but said he doesn't anticipate it
would be extended beyond that.
A different judge will handle any cases
that go to trial because Lubet has been
assigned to a different court division.
The prosecution contends that Cham-
pion, who was from Decatur, Ga., col,
lapsed and died after walking down a
gauntlet if. other band members who
beat him with fists and instruments on
a bus parked outside an Orlando hotel
following a football game.
It led to the departure of the band's
longtime director, the abrupt resigna-
tion of the university's president, James
Ammons and the suspension last year
of the famed marching band. FAMU
has since made sweeping changes in an
effort to end a culture of hazing.
