who is represent-
Baker ing Baker in the
matter, saidhis cli-
ent is "lookldng forward to prov-
ing his innocence in court.".
A federal Grand Jury handed
down a sealed indictment on
the charges a month ago. It was
first unsealed and made public
Biker is expected to be formal-
ly arraigned on the charges early
Thursday afternoon in Panama

"We knew the indictment was
coming, knew it was going to
be made public today.'" Judkins
said. "We had no clue What the
charge or charges would be. I
can tell you that we wouldn't
officially get a copy of it until
tomorrow when we go to court,
and I can tell you that he's known
about the investigation for quite
a while and has known that an
indictment was coming for some
period of time. He is looking for-
ward to proving his innocence in
court. He will enter a plea of not
guilty and I would be shocked if
he had to do anything more at
this point except promise to ap-
pear in court."I, ,
The arraignment is scheduled
for 1:30 p.m.

State Road 71
From staff reports
Drivers traveling State Road 71 in Marianna
will encounter temporary delays beginning
Monday, Aug. 12,'accordihg to the Florida De-
partment of Transportation. That's when con-
struction crews begin resurfacing the corridor
between Malloy Plaza Road and the Calhoun
County line. FDOT says work is scheduled to
be completed next summer.
The $8.5 million project includes concrete
reconstruction work along S.R. 71, from the
TA Truck Stop located just south of Inter-
state 10 to the Pilot Truck Stop north of 1-10.
Lane closures arid detours will occur during
FDOT will host a public meeting this winner,
to provide information about the impact of
detours to travelers.
As always, the agencyy reminds drivers that
construction activities are weather depen-
dent and may be delayed or rescheduled in
the event of inclement weather. Motorists,
pedestrians and bicyclists are asked to travel
with care through work zones and watch for
construction equipment and workers entering
and exiting the roadway. '
From staff report
A beer truck overturned on U.S. 98 in
Panama City earlyWednriesday morning, send-
ing suds, kegs, broken-bottles and dented,
spewing cans onto the roadway. The truck
contained about 130 cases of canned and
bottled beer and 35 kegs of the beverage, all
worth approximately $12,000, according to
a Florida Highway Patrol report that quoted
Goldring Gulf Distributing LLC in the esti-
mate. The spill stopped traffic for a time while
the roadway was cleaned up. The sturdy kegs
were not breached and were loaded back on
the truck; the cans and battles took the brunt
of the damage.
The International T400 was eastbound
around.8 a.m. when driver Jonathan Rust, 30,
lost control of it. Rust steered onto the south
shoulder in an attempt to regain control, steer-
ing left to re-enter the roadway. However, the
truck overturned and spilled its cargo, skid-
ding to a stop and facing north across both the
east and westbound lanes of the road.
Rust, of Panama City, received minor inju-
ries in the crash and was taken to Gulf Coast
Hospital for treatment.

that Coastal had a $3 mil-

was able to exercise its op-

Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder
What are the symptoms?
Only specialists can diagnose attention deficit
hyperactivity disorder, commonly known
as ADHD. Before any kind of diagnosis, a
specialist, such as a psychiatrist, neurologist,
or pediatrician, must first ensure that the
hyperactivity is not a manifestation of trauma
or any other type of disturbance. If parents
suspect that a child has ADHD, they should be
very careful about jumping to conclusions.
Children suffering from ADHD can -present
different symptoms of inattention, hyperactivity,
Inattention: children cannot stay focused on
what they are doing; they are easily distracted,
don't seem to listen, have difficulty getting
themselves organized, often lose items, and do
not follow instructions.
Hyperactivity: children have difficulty, sitting
still and move constantly, talk a lot, run or climb
at inopportune moments, and are incapable of.
Impulsiveness: children interrupt others, have
difficulty waiting their turn, and tend to touch
Certainly, all children demonstrate one or
another of these types of behavior when
they are tired or excited. However, children
suffering from ADHD will exhibit several of
these symptoms in an ongoing and excessive

TOUGH ROAD AHEAD

The Marianna Bulldogs matched their
highest win total in four years in 2012 un-
der coach Tim Cokely, but the 2013 edition
of the Bulldogs will face far more obstacles
to equal that mark under new coach Mark
Cokely, who has since moved on to coach
at Leon High School, led Marianna to an 8-
2 mark last season despite missing out on
But six of those wins came against 1A
opposition, with the Bulldogs set to play
just two 1A teams in 2013: the Northview
Chiefs, who won the 1A state tide a season
ago, and the Trenton Tigers, who the Chiefs
beat in the title game.
On top of its District 1-4A opponents East
Gadsden, Florida High, and Walton, Marl-
anna will also take on three teams from 5A
in Bay, Wakulla, and Rutherford, as well as
It's a top heavy schedule that will require
the Bulldogs' undivided attention each
and every week, a message that Beach
said he has driven home to' his players all
"We just talk about howwe know we're go-
ing to be in some physical battles this year,"
the coach said. "The teams on our schedule
are tough, so we just have to battle. No one
is going to give us anything, so we have to
take it. It's about playing tough. That's what
we've got to do.We have to learn to be tough
and physical for four quarters, especially
with some of the teams we're playing."
Fortunately for the Bulldogs, they do re-
turn a nice nucleus from last year's team
that includes the leading rusher, passer,
and receiver from that group, as well as
several key contributors from a fast and
But Beach said that he hopes the real
power behind this squad will be the offen-
sive line, which brings back a good deal of
size and experience despite losing standout
performer Ander Bodkin to graduation. .
Landon Turnmire, Devan. Baxley, and
Max Williams return after starting in 2012,
while 6-foot-3, 290-pound senior Richard
Davis and 300-pound sophomore Brandon
Boykin step into the fray to give the Bull-
dogs-uncommon size up front, which MHS
hopes paves the way for big seasons from
the team's play-makers.
"The offensive line is the ley to any team.
As they go, we will go," Beach said. "That's
what I tell my skill guys. They get their
names in the paper, but they have to thank
those guys up front. The line will take us
where we need to go. They accept the chal-
lehge, no doubt about it. It's an enthusias-
tic bunch that's going to lead us.'
"I think they're going to be special.
They're big, physical, smart, and they're
together. They had a phenomenal summer,
every one of them.".
Reaping the benefits of consistent of-
fensive line play could be two of the area's
most talented and explosive skillplayers in

SWe're calling it, Denny Hamlin's championship
quest is over. It passed on Lap 15 of Sunday's
GoBowling.com 400 at Pocono Raceway, Hamlin
blew a tire, and his No. 11 Joe Gibbs Racing Toyota
smacked the wall. Game over.
Hamlin finished last in the 43-car field and now
sits 25th in NASCAR Sprint Cup Series points. The
hard facts show there are five regular-season races
remaining and Hamlin, who has no wins, is 118
points behind 20th-place Jeff Burton,
Unless Hamlin can locate a long-lost HoUdini in-
struction manual on escaping a locked points trap,
this steamer trunk will remain shut tight.
Remember, this was not of Ham- lin's
making. He fractured a back
bone March 24 after getting
into-an incident with Joey
Logano in California.
The injury required
Hamlin to sit out four
I "Just a very frustrat-
ing season," Hamlin

his stock car in the
A season that, for all
ended in the dl
last Sunday. 1r
Jimmie Johnson is so good this season, it is
almost laughable. Even when Johnson blows a tire
and comes home 13th, he gains championship
points, which is what happened at Pocono.
The five-time Cup Series champion blew the
tire while leading, fought his way back to 13th and
gained two points in the standings from last week.
Johnson led 116 of the combined 320 laps at
Indy and Pocono.during the last two weeks and
came up short both times.
His pit crew let him'down at Indy, and Goodyear
let him down at Pocono, yet he seems to be toying
with the competition.
"I don't know How, with all the trouble we had,
that we salvaged a 13th," Johnson said. "It was
just a team effort, I'm very proud of everyone
involved. Unfortunately, we had that flat after
leading the race, but stuff happens. It's
B GLEN'S ERAS
S 'Watkins Glen International has an inter-
*esting history of Cup Series drivers enjoying
compressed success over its windy, 2.45-mile
Forsinstance, Mark Martin won the event three
straight years, 1993-95. Frorm 1997 through 2001,.
Jeff Gordon conquered The Glen four times-in five
In, n'2002, Tony Stewart took thebaton from Gof-
don, He won five times from 2002 through 2009,
including one race where he was wretchedly sick
to his stomach (no, don't ask for details).
Now it looks like we are in the Marcos Ambrose
era. The "Thunder From Down Under" has two
career win's, both at The Glen the past two
seasons. He can tie Martin's and Gordon's
record of three straight on Sunday.
Other guys who were minor surprises
to wip at the Glen: Geoff Bodipe won in
1996 by employing a two-pit-stop-only
strategy; four years later, Steve Park,

Hamlin's back is
against the wall.
S doesn't he look
be surprised if: Ambrose
an elbow or two, as he
is third race at The Glen.
He might look like a statesman,
but Kyle Petty burns bridges.
Is Petty bucking for an NBC deal?
If so, let's hope it works. Kyle'is on a
very, very, very short list of broad-
cast commentators wbo don't mind
saying what's on their mind, even if it
means stirring the pot. A few weeks
after rattling Danica Patrick's cage, he
got Denny Hamlin all stirred up this
past week. When NBC starts putting
together its future NASCAR-coverage
roster, Kyle would be a smart draft
Bowling, crackers ... what's next?
We're in a stretch of races spon-
sored by products we might not asso-
ciate with racin'. Last week at Pocono,
the Bowling Proprietors of Association
of America sponsored the Go Bowling
400 the first of a two-year contract
they hope will convince you to wear
community shoes and embrace the
fragrance of lane oil. This week at Wat-
kins Glen, it's America's favorite little
cheese-flavored cracker that brings us
the Cheez-lt 355.
Do these sponsorships work?
Hey, look how Johnsonville Foods
stock took off after 2001's Pork the
Other White Meat 400. So, to be safe,
if you're in upstate New York. you
might want to hoard some Cheez-lts.
For what it's worth, the Answer Man
prefers his in tomato soup or crushed
over a tuna casserole.
