Dogs found in 'deplorable' condition

One of the dogs found on Frances Drive peeks out of a bush

any animals that were able to get away Thursday.

dead, some vicious, and

email, the writer said she
was leaving the area, had
left a couple of days worth
of food and water for the
animals, could not care
for them anymore, and
begged the shelter to take
them in.
With no room in their
shelter Partners for Pets
called upon other agen-

Master Gardener adds value to nature's gifts


Sally Waxgiser is one of
Jackson County's longest-
serving Master Gardeners,
having put in more than
5,000 volunteer hours over
the course of a decade. For
many years, she manned
the Master Gardener
.phone line at the Jackson
County Agricultural Com-
plex several days a week.
She has now achieved
Master Gardener Emeri-
tus status, and has finally
cut back considerably On
her hours.
She's spending some of
that extra personal time
working in her garden
at home and looking for
natural treasures in the
woods around her home.
Her head is filled with
information on growing
flowers and vegetables,
and you can find her on
Saturday at the Marianna
Farmers Market on Madi-
son Street. Although she
has a vegetable garden at
home for personal con-
sumption, she doesn't sell
much of her raw produce

This Saturday, she hopes

started selling some of her
flowers like giant zinnias
and marigold. -
She also 'makes rustic
walkingsticks out of wood
on her land.
She walks out there
most days with her three
dogs and usually carries
a small manual saw with
her. While the pups chase
squirrels, she chases ar-
tistic opportunities. "I
find things that look like
they should be something
else," she said. "I cut them
live, and take'them home.
I dry and de-bark them,
polish them and some-
times put a compass on
top, and a hand strap, but
Don't like to color them. I

Sober talk with Brazil's bishops

f Roman Catholicism can
be compared with a fleet,
then the Brazilian church
has long been its largest aircraft
carrier with an estimated 123
million Catholics, more than
any other country on earth.
But that isn't hbw Pope Francis
described this church during
one of the less-publicized ad-
dresses during his epicWorld
Youth Day sojourn in Rio de
Instead of a rich artd powerful
vesseLfor the old establishment,
he told Brazil's bishops that
their church is now a humble
sailing ship surrounded by the
giant ships of globalization and
"The Church's barque is not
as powerful as the great trans-
atlantic liners which crossithe
ocean," said Francis, in the first
of two lengthy, serious address-
es to bishops from this region.
S'Dear brothers, the results of
our pastoral work do not de-
pend on a wealth of resources,
but on the creativity of love.
...Another lesson which the
Church must constantly recall is
that she cannot leave simplicity
behind; otherwise she forgets

how to speak the language of
'Mystery," said the official text.
T"At times we lose
people because,
they dont nded"
stand what we are
saying, because
we have forgot-.
Teto do ten the language
iWatungly of simplicity and
import an intel-"
lectualism foreign
to our people."
The Aigentinean pope didn't

have to do the math concerning
Brazils 275 dioceses. As noted
in a July 18 analysis from the
Pew Forum on Religion & Public
Life, Catholic fortunes have
clearly declined there in the
21st century. Between 2000 and
2010, Catholics dropped from
74 percent of Brazil's popula- "
tion to 65 percent. In that same
period, Protestantism grew from
15 percent of the population to
22 percent. "
The rise in Pentecostalism has',
been particularly striking, with
6 percent of Brazil's popula-
tion attending these churches.
in 1991 -'compared with 13
percent in 2010.
. The texts from Pope Francis

7Thte tsmivPope Bnwis mafde it dear tudhae thdn the

made it clear that he thinks
the evangelistic efforts of local
clergy have been weak and, in
particular, that they must regain
a common touch that resonates
with the poor, the weak and
those yearning for spiritual ex-
periences that transcend mere
Comparing Catholicism's
ancient traditions with the city
of Jerusalem, the pope asked..
Brazil's bishops if they still have
what it takes to win those who
have fled their altar seeking .,
forms of faith considered "more
lofty, morepowerful andfaster"-
than the Catholicism that is
their heritage.
q would like all of us to ask
ourselves today; Are we still a
Church capable of warming
hearts?A Church capable of
leading people back to Jerusa-
lem? Of bringing them home?
Jerusalem is where our roots
are: Scripture, catechesis, sacra-
ments, community, friendship
with theLord,Maryandthe,

apostles," he said. "Are we still
able tb speak of these roots in
a way that will revive a sense of
wonder at their beauty?...
"People today are attracted by'
things that are faster and faster:
rapid Internet connections,
speedy cars and planes, instant
relationships. But at the same
time we see a desperate need
for calmness, I would even say
"Is the Church stillable to
move slowly: to-take the time to
listen, to have the patience to
mend and reassemble?'Or is the
Church herself caughtup in the
frantic pursuit of efficiency?"
Whenit comes to training
pastors capable of doing this
work, there is no quick fix and,
.warned Francis, "Bishops may
.not delegate this task," ,
By the time he addressed
conference leaders from Latin
America and the Caribbean,
shortly before leaving the coun-
try, Pope Francis was openly.
stating his desire for bishops '

to leave the conmf6rt of their
ecclesiastical fortresses and to
return to the pastoral front lines,
working elbow to elbow with
their people.
- As one observer told "Whis-
pers in the Loggia" blogger
RoccoWPalmno, "This will cause
heart failure in certain quar-
ters." The pope appealed for
betterpreaching, improved
Bible studies, a renewed pres-
ence among the poor, expanded
Suse of the talents of women and
a true openness to laypeople

ship in cooperationwith their
, pastors.
"The key," said Palmo, via
email, "is that Francis:is far
more invested in the 'culture
war' inside the church" than in
the controversies about public
issues that make headlines. The
pope is "literally declaring war
on the clericalism,.decadence,
etc. that he sees inside the walls
(more) than anything going on
in the world outside." -

Young couple could afford more risk

Dear Bruce: My wife
is in college. We receive
approximately $11,000
annually from a Staf-
ford loan capped at 8 1/4
percent. We have about
$7,000 left over that we
have been investing in
several mutual funds.
We own our.home free
and clear, but we have a
$24,000 balance on our
home equity loan at 5
percent. Mywife and I are
inour early20s andour
income is $36,000. Are
we doing the right

Dear Reader: Let me
disabuse you immedi-
atelyof the circumstance.

free and clear. You have a
$24,000 mortgage,
which is what a home
equity loan is. It'sounds
like you are doing very
well, but don't kid your,-
self. You don't own your
With your income of
$36,000, it sounds like
you are living wel within
your means. Whether you
should be investing in
mutual funds or directly
in the stock market is


another question.
.It is -my opinion that,
particularly with today's...
relatively poor perfor-
mance of mutual funds,
that you might.shift your
investments into reason-
ably large companies
that are paying 2 percent
to 4 percent dividends.
If you" wish to take more
risk, which you certainly
can afford to do in your
early 20s, you might lean
toward companies that
are paying dividends and
are rapidly increasing in
value. .

sity is a key to making the
local market even more
appealing to buyers.
Right now she's grow-
ing "broom corn" and has
learned to make hand-
fashioned stick brooms
from the stalks of that
plant, which also has a
decorative seed that can
be put to other uses. She
plans to teach others how
to do that.
Which brings her to her
latest dream related to ru-

ral liv-ing; those brooms
and walking sticks might
soon have a place in a new
ongoing crafters' event.
She's working with the

Although the location of

Waxgiser and Griffin are

"It'll be something that
crafters and others can
participate in, educating
others how to do what they
do," Griffin explained. "It's
about sharing your hob-
by skills with others, and
having a place to sell your
wares. We plan to have
two or three demonstra-
tors each time we have an
event, switching them off
each time, with everybody
else free to beworking their
booths. We're trying to tie
this in as a quality-of-life
educational event. Hob-
bies can be great stress re-
lievers and learning some-
thing new can be a way of
getting more enjoyment
out of your life. We're look-
ing for crafters who enjoy
teaching others and sup-
port their desire to learn-
ing something new."
- Waxgiser explained fur-
ther. "We're trying to start
a little group of artists and
crafters. People in this area

don't know where to go to
buy homemade, unique
items, and there really
isn't a continuing venue
for the people who, have
the skills to produce those
things. We want to teach,
display and sell in one lo-
cation. There are all kinds
of educational demonstra-
tions that can take place,
and we have a lot of tal-
ented people here. I want
to see the county grow,
with more things available
like this, and I think this
is a niche where we can
make that happen. I know
that I have (a relative) who'
has just about everything
she needs, so it's extremely
difficult to buy her a Christ-
mas gift that she can't just
go out and get herself. If
I have the -problem, then
so do a whole lot of oth-
er people. But if we hadf
a crafters market, I'd be
able to get her something
unique that she would
never find a duplicate of.
And the whole concept,
too, is to give crafters a
way to make a little money

with their skills and teach
other people so that their
knowledge can survive on

Minn. dad claims

third of $448M

Powerball jackpot

The Associated Press
Minnesota man claimed
his third of a $448 mil-
lion Powerball jackpot
on Thursday, wasting no
time before revealing his
good fortune to the world
and saying he had "been
waiting for this day my
entire life."
Paul White, 45, a project
engineer from Ham Lake,
said his family often gave
him a hard time for fre-
quently playing the: lot-
tery- and he had a tough
time convincing many
of them earlier Thursday
that he had won.
"The only person- who
didn't feel I was BSing
them was my mother," a
beaming White said at a
news conference, where
he was joined by his girl-
friend, brother and two
colleagues. '
White said he'll take
a lump sum, which will
amount to $58.3 million
after taxes. Despite the
minuscule odds of a jack-
pot win, White said he
often daydreamed about
how he'd spend his win-,
nings if he ever won.
"I've totallybeenwaiting
for-this day my entire life,"
he said, lamenting that
he has to wait two weeks
for his money. "Start the
clock right now," he said,
eliciting laughs.
The other two winning

tickets were sold in New
Jersey, including in a
coastal community that
is still recovering from
Superstorm Sandy. But no
one had stepped forward
to claim either of those
two shares as of Thursday
afternoon. %
White said he learned
of his life-changing luck
Thursday morning after
his girlfriend called to say
a winning ticket had been
sold in Mirmnnesota. He
checked the 10 he bought
and was elated to find
one that matched all six
numbers. :: .. ,
Mega-jackpot winners
often wait days or weeks
before claiming their
prizes, giving them time
to prepare and make le-
gal arrangements. White
said he had an attorney
and financial adviser in
mind, and wasn't afraid of
the publicity-noting the
New Jersey winners hadn't
stepped forward yet.
"I hope I'm yesterday's
news as soon as possible,"
he said.
White said he is divorced
and has a 16-year-old son
and 14-year-old daughter.
He said he always wor-
ried about taking care
of his children's college
and medical costs, and
was happy to leave those
worries behind:, "All those
things gone, period. You
don't have to worry about
that again."

3 suspected US drones'

kil 12 militants in Yemen

The Associated Press
SANAA, Yemen Three
U.S. drone strikes killed
a total of 12 suspected al-
Qaida militants Thursday,
a Yemeni military official
said, raising to eight the
number of attacks in less
than two -weeks as the
Arab nation is on high alert
against terrorism.
The uptick in drone
strikes signals that the
Obama administration is
stepping up its efforts to
target Yemen's al-Qaida
offshoot al-Qaida in the
Arabian Peninsula amid
fears of attacks after the
interception of a message
between its leader and the
global leader of the terror
Since July 27, drone at-
tacks have killed 34 sus-
pected militants, accord-
ing to an Associated Press
count provided by Yemeni
security officials.
The Yemeni military of-
ficial said the first drone
attack killed six alleged
militants in central .Marib
province, while the second
killed three more in the al-
Ayoon area of Hadramawt
province in the south. The
third killed three others in
the al-Qutn area of Hadra-
mawt, he said. All the air-
strikes targeted cars, add-
ed the official, who spoke
on condition of anonymity
because he was not autho-

rized to talk to the media.
The high alert in Yemen
came after authorities re-
vealed an al-Qaida plot to
target foreign embassies
and international shipping
lanes in the Red Sea.
The U.S. and Britain,
evacuated diplomatic staff
this week after learning of
a threatened attack that
prompted Washington to
close temporarily 19 diplo-
matic posts in the Middle
East and Africa.
While the United States
acknowledges its drone
program in Yemen, it does
not confirm individual
strikes or release informa-
tion on .how .many have
been carried out.
The program is run by
the Pentagon's Joint Spe-
cial Operations Command
and the CIA, with the mili-
tary flying its drones out of
Djib6uti, and the CIA out
of a base in Saudi Arabia.
In the capital of Sanaa, an
Associated Press reporter
said a drone buzzed over-
head for hours Wednesday
and early Thursday, leav-
ing residents anxiously
wondering about its target
and whether al-Qaida mil-
itants were about to strike
in the city.
Thursday's first reported
drone attack hit a car car-
rying the suspected mili-
tants in the district ofWadi
Ubaidah, about 109 miles
east of Sanaa.

Badly burned bod-
ies lay beside their ve-
hide, according to the
official. Five of the dead
were Yemenis, whiBe the

Thomas in charge of Pirates

Sneads' varsity football coach Bill Thomas sets up a huddle Wednesday afternoon.

Team looks to

get over hump

with new coach
In each of the past two sea-
sons, the Sneads Pirates have
been one victory away from
clinching a berth in the 1A state
playoffs, falling short and finish-
ing third in the district standings
both times.
The Pirates will try to clear that
final hurdle in 2013 under new
coach Bill Thomas, who came to
Sneads after spending 13 years
as an assistant coach at Arnold.
Getting his team squad over the
hump and back into the playoffs
for the first time in a decade will
be a challenge given that the Pi-
rates lost their top three rushers
from last season, as well as two
of their top three tacklers.
But while Sneads fans are sure-
ly anxious to see the team get
into the postseason after coming
so close the past two seasons,
Thomas said that he and his
players aren't yet looking that far
"Right now, I don't guess we've

The Dolphins' starting offense
played 10 snaps in against the
Cowboys, and coach Joe Philbin
said the first team likely will see
a little more action against Jack-

ceiver Mike Wallace's first game
with Miami since signing a $60
million, five-year contract. He
missed the opener because of a

Two tied for lead after first round at PGA Championship

,Scott, Furyk share
top spot at Oak Hill

The Asocilted Preo:"

PITTSFORD, N.Y. With every ma-
jor, Adam Scott is making a convinc-
ing case that he isn't satisfied with just
a green jacket.
Scott ran off five straight birdies ear-
ly in his round at soft and vulnerable
Oak Hill. and finished wiLth a 15-foot
par for a 5-under 65 that gave.him a
share of the lead Thursday with Jim
Furyk in the PGA Championship.
Scott finally became a major cham-
pion at Augusta National in April when
he won a playoff at the Masters. Just
three weeks ago, he had the lead on
the back nine at Muirfield in the Brit-
ish Open until he made four bogeys to
fall back. In the last major of the year,
Scott at times looked unstoppable.
His five straight birdies quickly put
him atop the leaderboard with Furyk,
and after a 71-minute delay when
storms moved into the area, Scott

added a sixth birdie on the par-3 15th
to reach 6 under. He was on pace to
tie the major championship record at
Oak Hill until a three-putt bogey on
the 16th.
"Just got on a bit of a roll and hit.a
few shots close," Scott said. "I didn't
have too much putting to do. You've
got to take advantage when it. hap-
pens, because it doesn't happen
too much in the majors. Nothing to
complain about in 65."
There were hardly any complaints
on Oak Hill, a course that has yielded
only 10 72-hole scores under par in
five previous majors. It's only Thurs-
day, and the players felt as if they got
off easy. Rain overnight and humid
conditions kept the course soft. and
birdies were dropping at an alarming
Except for Tiger\-oods.
The world's No. 1 player made only
two birdies despite playing in tke still

years since his last-win at
the Tour Championship to
capture the FedEx Cup and

ago, including the U.S.
He was as steady as

lowest first-round score in
19 appearances at the PGA
"Usually disappointed
with ending the day on a
bogey," Furyk said. "But
you know, 65, PGA, is not
so bad."
David Heamrn of Canada,

he says with a laugh.

Dan Marino and the Perfect Season. The.
Heat even honored Marino by hanging
his jersey in their arena.., "- ,* -
SBut since LeBron'James brought his
talents to South Beach, the Heat have
overshadowed the Dolphins, reaching
the NBA Finals three years in a row and
winning the past two championships.
During the same .span the Dolphins
have gone 20-28, including 7-9 i 2012,1
: and their most recent postseaso0n victo-.
ry was in 2000. Heat games are sellouts,
while the Dolphins often play in a half-
empty stadium.

playoff games this year and says any
eclipse in the fans' interest is temporary.
"It's -still a football town," he says.

That won't be enough to beat the Heat.
tHave they taken attention and money
away from the Dolphins?
"Maybe in the short term," outgo-
ing Dolphins CEO Mike Dee says. "If
we have a successful season this year, I
think you'd see that correct itself. This
is a major city now. There are enough
entertainment dollars to support teams
that are doing well." ..
Team owner Stephen Ross agrees. He
grew up in Miami and concedes it's a
tough town in which to sell tickets if you
don't win. But'he says the Dolphins and
Heat can both lthriv'e in the market.'
'"They've been successful, and I ap-,
plaud them for that," Ross says. "There's

y aom.Annie's
Dear Annie: Twventy-five years ago, my
ex-wife left me and too4 our four chil-
dren with her. 'I married again a fewyears
.lhterand now have four lovely, intelligent
children who make me very happy. The
children from 'my previous marriage are
now in their 30s. '
My oldest daughter, "lean," is a psy-
chologist, Jean has never said I was a bad
father, but she makes strange accusa-
tibns in sporadic messages, such as that I
want her to fell me that her life has been
terrible. She sent me a birthday giftbut
never acknowledges things I send to her,
including a photo of her half-siblings, IL
, simply don't understand her, and for a
psychologist, she communicates poorly.
; The psychologist has now informed the
oldest daughter Qfmy present marriage
that she will visit us soon, regardless of
Whether she is in my"good book or bad
book" (her phrase). It seems that.Jean is'
saying she doesn't care how I feel about
her visit, and that she is trying to form


IfyOu're forming a new bridge partnership, make
sure you discuss as much as possible, especially
leads and signals.
When an expert defends with a less experienced
player, he can usually signal to tell his partner
what to do. Of course; this assumes that the less
experienced player is watching and interpreting
However, there will be deals in which the expert
will not be sure which way to turn. Today's is an
example. South is in three hearts. West leads the
spade seven. South wins on the board and calls for
a low trump. What should happen after that?
South bravely found a three-heart weak jump
overcall West wanted to make a negative double,
but was not strong enough. And East felt too weak
to balance with three spades. Note that double-
dummy (everyone knows all of the cards), to de-
feat four spades, South must obtain a club ruff.
To beat three hearts here, Ahe defenders must
take one heart, two diamonds, one club and a dia-
mond ruff. So, East must take the second trickwith
his heart ace. Then West should drop the nine, a
suit-preference signal showing strong diamonds.
Next, East will shift to the diamond nine. West will
take two tricks in the suit and give his partner a
fuff. Finally, Eastwill cash the club ace for down
If you and your partner watch the cards closely,
use low trumps to send suit-preference signals.

ah alliance with my children against me,
even though she has never met them and
knows next to nothing about them..
I have great faith in the judgment of
the children of my present marriage. I
want them to meet their half-sister. But
I simply don't know how to deal with her

Dear Perplexed: You and Jean obviously
have a distant relationship. We suspect,
she thinks you "abandoned" her for your
new, family, whether true or not, and is
still nursing some hurt oyer it. Consider
this visit an opportunity to remedyihe
situation. Welcome her with open.arms.
Tell her how much you love her and hope
to get to'know her better as the compe-
tent adult she is. Don't rehash the past or
place blame on her mother. You also can
enlist the help of your other children to
create a warmer relationship. Please try.

Tulsa, ECU get final chance to exit with title

The Associated Press

Tulsa and East Carolina
get one more chance to
vwin another Conference
USA title before moving to
a new league.
Or maybe a newcomer
like Louisiana Tech or
Middle Tennessee can get
started with a champion-
ship in C-USA, which still
has plenty of teams com-
ing and going.
The Bulldogs and Blue
Raiders are among six new
teams this season in Con-
ference USA, those addi-
tions more than offsetting
the four that left. Tulane
joins Tulsa and East Caro-
lina as schools in their fi-
nal season in the league
- and that trio will be fully
replaced over the next two
years. ,
"Honestly, Jts 'exciting
to me. .J think that having
the fact that it's already
out there that there's going
to be transition when the
year's over, it takes awaythe
concern," said Tulsa coach
Bill Blankenship. "What
I'm more excited about is
getting to play Texas-San
Antonio and Larry Coker,
and North Texas and Dan
McCarhey' and Skip Holtz
and Louisiana Tech."
Defending C-USA cham-
pion Tulsa lost eight start-
ers from the league's top
defense but is still the
West Division favorite. The
the league's first champi-
onship game in 2005. East
Carolina, which has also
won two titles in that span,
'returns eight: starters on
both offense and defense
and is favored in the East

on its way out.
."'It's not that awkward,
and being picked always
just makes it a real chal-
lenge, but it shows great
respect for your program,"
Pirates coach Ruffii Mc-
Neill said.
* McNeill is in his fourth
season at East Carolina,
where he replaced Holtz,

back at the Southwest Con-

rivalries existed because of
the locations of the univer-

Bailiff said. And Louisiana
Tech, which had been in
the WAC, isn't too far away.
"All of a sudden you've got
car-ride trips for your fan
base, where people get in
the car and put the flag in
the window," Holtz said.
"Their fans can also come
to our place, which I think
is going to be a complete-

Changing schools ,
A smooth transition _

Having to move house can be a major source
of stress for children. When a change of school
is also involved, the emotional impact can
be huge. Children need the support of their
parents in order for this transition to. go as
smoothly as possible.
Just because they are young doesn't mean
that children can adapt easily to upheaval in
their lives. Just as adults do, kids need time to
get used to change. The stress of a transition
might manifest itself as sudden mood swings,
nightmares, or minor physical discomfort.
Even insomnia can make an appearance. To
prevent some of these reactions, parents have
everything to gain by preparing their children
for a move.
The best kind of start is to put all your cards on
the table and explain frankly to children why
they have to move and what it will involve.
After this, parents must listen carefully as they
give children time to'verbalize their worries.
It is important that children feel comfortable
expressing what they are feeling.
For the transition to go smoothly, it is essential
that parents supply points of reference for
their children. Taking the time to visit new
classrooms, meet the teachers, and see
other students will help them develop more
confidence. On the way home, a conversation

about the positive aspects of the visit will help
other fears to dissipate. ..
Of course, parents should not expect that,
all their children's misgivings will disappear
like magic. But by being calm arid patient,
parents can make their children feel secure
enough that the transition to a new school and
neighborhood can go smoothly.

Parents have everything to on by prepa~ ng
their children emodonally for a move.
