Southerland visits Jackson County
Soutesits. 1o&

U.S. Congressman Steve South-
erland spent most of Thursday in
Jackson County, visiting Jackson
Hospital and Wal-Mart employ-
ees before giving speeches and
taking questions at two commu-
nity meetings. The Republican
legislator represents Jackson and
13 other surrounding counties in
the 2nd Congressional district.
He was the keynote speaker at
the Chipola Civic Club luncheon,
and held his own town hall meet-
ing at Chipola College later that
day. After opening comments at
the town hall meeting, he an-
swered some of the 35 or more
questions that were written
down for his consideration by
members of the audience. At the
end of the Chipola College meet-
ing, a man spoke from the floor,
demanding that Southerland lis-
ten to him and saying he'd writ-
ten Southerland a letter that the
Congressman never answered.
But Southerland refused to en-
tertain his comments publicly
and the man eventually stood
down without having asked a
question or made any statement

crowd at both meetings, getting
a smattering of applause from
time to time as he spoke of his
intentions related to legislation


on controversial topics such as
immigration reform, the nation's
Affordable Health Care Act, and
his House-approved Farm Bill
Act amendment that, if passed
by both chambers, would split
its two major components. He
said the Farm Bill as it has stood
for manyyears is a bad pairing of
.apples and oranges. Overseen by
the U.S. Department of Agricul-
ture and Consumer Services, he
said that 80 percent of the mas-
sive Farm Bill is actually related
to the country's Supplemental
Nutrition Assistance Program,
which replaced the old food
stamp program. The other 20
percent is directly tied to farm
issues, and Southerlandwants to
remove the SNAP elements into
a separate program that would
be overseen by Health and Hu-
man Services.
As for SNAP, he said, the food
assistance program should un-.
dergo. reform. The vulnerable,
he said, like children, the dis-
abled and the elderly, would be
exempt from a requirement he
wants to see passed. To receive

posed to chemicals in-con-
centrated laundry packets
since May 2012, when the
center first received an ex-
posure report. The center
says it has received almost
300 exposure reports so far
this year.
"With young children,
any household product
is likely to end up'in their
mouth," said Dr. Cyn-
thia Lewis-Younger, the
center's medical director.
Most exposures in Florida
involved children tasting
or licking the concentrated
liquid packets, which don't
cause children to become
seriously ill.
"Parents know that
things in the house can be
dangerous and they call

for advice. And (in) many
* of those cases we can reas-.
sure parents," she said. "
The American Associa-.
tion of Poison Control Cen-
ters said national data for
this year had not yet been
- compiled, but that this-
kind of poisoning death
had not been reported in
prior years.
The boy was taken from
a shelter for abused wom-
en to the hospital Friday
afternoon "in some dis-
tress" and pronounced
dead about an hour later,
said Kissimmee Police
spokesman Capt. Warren
Police declinedto release
further information, citing
the ongoing investigation.
No charges had been filed.
The Florida Department
of Children and Families
said it had prior history
with the family of the boy.
Michael Williams, but offi-
cials declined comment.
; "While we have the cause
of death, we just don't know
if it was as a result of abuse
or neglect, which prevents
us at this point in the in-
vestigation from opening
the records or giving out
any detailed information

about our involvement
with the family,'" DCE said
in a statement Thursday.
Police and child welfare
officials have not identi-
fled the mother, citing pri-
vacy concerns. .
"We continue tO work
with law enforcement as
the investigation moves
forward into the .circum-
stances surrounding the'.
poisoning," the DCF state-
ment said. "The-death of
little Michael is a tragedy.
It reminds all of us as par-
ents of the dangers of leav-
ing household cleaning
supplies around our little
More than 5,700 children
under the age of 5 were ex-
posed to the chemicals in
the concentr:ated packets
so far this year, accord-
ing to the American Asso-
ciation of Poison Control
Centers. There were no
reported deaths before
2012, the most recent re-
cords available and when
the bright blue-and-red
packets first came on the
market. .
"People are not listen-
ing to the warnings," said
Bruce Ruck with the New
Jersey Poison Center. "Last

year at about this time,.
there were quite a few is-
sues relating to this," he
said of children swallow-
ing the single-dose packs,
with many of them ending
up on ventilators and in
intensive care units.
Hundreds of children
across the U.S. have re-
, quired hospitalization for
ingesting the chemicals
in the packets suffering
loss of consciousness, ex-
cessive vomiting drowsi-
ness, throat swelling, and
difficulty breathing.'
The Procter & Gamble.
Co., makers of the orange-
and-purple Tide Pods, has
a Safe Home campaign to
help "educate 'consumers
on the correct use and stor-
age of household cleaning
and fabric care products."
The company also rolled
out redesigned packag-
ing this year, including
an opaque container and
double-latch lid that is
"We are seeing more con-
sistent warning labels and
some companies move to

at one of the toughest issues
facing religious leaders try-

people who might threaten indi-

congregation as a whole.
For starters, planning-team
- members must "share their
own knowledge of threats and
hazards the house of worship
and surrounding community
has facedin the pastor may
face in the future." The sobering
reality is that religious sanctuar-
ies often contain large groups of
- people, including children and
the elderly, and the "better first
responders ... are able to discern
these threats and react quickly,
the more lives can be saved."
The temptation, Meeks said,
is to think that megachurches
perhaps those known for tak-
"ing controversial public stands
face the greatest threats. The
reality is that most big con-
gregations have very detailed
security plans in place, often led
by members who are active-in,
or retired from, nearby police

Truth is, it's usually leaders of
small congregations who have
trouble facing the fact their
members could be at risk.

Meeks, who has led 80 local or

The exercise, held at Tyndall Operations Center in

Facebook to test mobile payments service

NEW YORK Facebook
plans to test a mobile pay-

users make purchases in-

their account on the social
Facebook Inc. said
Thursday that it is work-
ing on a "very small test"
and the' company says
there is no set schedule for
making the service avail-
able to users. The service
would use payment infor-
mation that shoppers store

cally complete checkout

apps. Then, the app would
Process the purchase.

Spokeswoman Tera Ran-
dall said in an emailed
statement that Facebook
has a "great relation-
ship with PayPal, and this
product is simply to test
how we can help our app
partners provide a
more. simple commerce
The test, she added, won't
involve moving payment

Nonetheless, shares of

The Claim: Blocks,

Example: Minute Maid's
website claims that eating
a daily total of 2 grams
of plant sterols as part -
of a diet low in saturated
fat and cholesterol may
reduce the risk of heart
disease. .,, ; ,
S The Truth: Research
shows that plant sterols -
natural substances found
in nuts and legumes, for
example- may reduce
LDL (bad) cholesterol
levels, and the FDA says
they may help reduce
your risk of heart disease.
But plant sterols seem to

)) The Truth: Most
people associate anti-
oxidants with building a

which is what the manu-
facturers are banking on.
"But whether it will boost
your immune response.
depends on how much
you are already consum-

Dr. Jeffrey Blumberg, di-
rector of the Antioxidants

Brunner 'said the. fire
team is also planning some
fundraisers in the near fu-
ture, but that the details
of those events have not
yet been worked out. "He
has a long road to recov-
ery ahead of him, and we
know we live-in the kind of

upand help out on the ex-

Brunner said Freuden-
berg is known as a dedicat-
ed member of the fire ser-
vice, having been inspired
' to do so by afire chief in
his childhood home near
Naples in south Florida.
"He'd wanted to be a fire-
man from a young age, and
he has always been a very
devoted person. He loves
his job. MNany times, almost
always, he'd come in early,
before his shift started,"
Brunner commented.
Someone will have to
drive Freudenberg back
and forth to the hospital
and help him with daily
tasks at home for an ex-
tended period of time,
Brunner said, as his hands
and arms will: likely be
bandaged to the elbow
while the grafts set and
the burns heal. Initially; he
won't be. able: to perform,
tasks like doing laundry,
cooking or the many other
tasks that require hand and
arm strength. Members of
the fire-rescue team will
be taking on some of the
driving duty, Brunner said,
volunteering to take him to,
Mobile on their off-days.-.
"We're going to try to band
* together to do this after he
gets home," Brunner said.
Freuidenberg, 29, is as-
signed to the Alford sub-
station. He joined JCFR full

Brunner asks that the
community keep Freuden-
berg and all emergency re-
sponders in their thoughts
and prayers. "For him,

Casey Stengel, elected to the. Baseball Hall of
Fame in 1966, said, "Without losers, where would
the winners be?"
In bridge, of course: A winner for one pair is a
loser for the opponents. And when you are the de-
clarer, you are advised'to count your losers before
playing from the board at trick one. After doing
that, if y6u can also count your winners in a rea-
sonable length of time say, five minutes! you
should do so. I estimate that on about 20 percent of
deals, counting winners will make the best.line of
In this example, Westleads the spade jack against
four hearts. How should South play? ,
South has four potential losers: onein each suit
And if that is as far as declarer went, ihe would prob-
ably win the first trick in his hand, cash the clubace.
and play a club to dummy's-queen. When it lost to
East's king and a spade came back, South would
win on the board and try the diamond finesse'(a
better bet than the heart finesse, which would need
East to have exachty king-doubleton). But when
that finesse lost also, declarer would go down one
and complain about bad luck.
Now countwinners. South has 10: two spades, five
hearts, two diamonds and-one club. Allhe needs to
do is win with his spade king, cash the diamond ace,
and play the diamond queen. West wins and leads
another spade, but declarer takes that on the board
and discards his remaining spade on the diamond
jack Then he plays on trumps, home and dry.
Count losers and winners; at least one will help.

Troy hoping for defensive revival

The Associated Press
TROY, Ala. Troy coach.
Larry Blakeney turned to
an old friend to revive the
Trojans' ailing defense.
He rehired former assis-
tant Wayne Bolt as defen-
sive-coordinator after en-
during two straight losing
seasons for the first time in
Blakeney's 22-year reign.
The Trojans have won just
eight games and gone 5-
11 in the Sun Belt Confer-
ence in two seasons since
winning a fifth consecu-
tive league championship,
and defense has been the
biggest culprit.
Linebacker Mark Wilson
said he thinks that's poised
to change.
"From the previous years
of defense, we're really
motivated to get this thing
turned around," Wilson
said. "Our last champion-
ship was in 2010, and that's
where we've been lacking,
in defense. We have a great
offense, but it's time for the
defense to step up. It's time
for us to play our part."
An offense led by all-

defensive scheme that is better able to adapt to the variety
of systems and no-huddle offenses they'll! face. Troy man-

last season.
Replacing Southward
Southward played a key role on the offense all four
seasons, but departed after his best season: 1,012 yards. 10
touchdowns. The job appears to be up for grabs.
Deon's role
Backup quarterback Deon Anthony was used in red zone
(and other) situations last season primarily because of his
running ability. He also set the school record for single-sea-
son completion percentage while finishing second on the
team with 390 rushing yards.

Despite that, Blakeney
said the overall roster

represents an upgrade.
"We're bigger, we're
faster and we're more tal-

been in a while," he said.
"Whether that computes

South Alabama Jaguars

"Obviously with it be-
ing brand-new, people are
voting us way down in the
polls and I would, too,"
Jones, said. "We're brand-
new and we've got to earn
our way up the ladder. But
it's exciting to know that
we played some of these
teams last year. I'm real ex-
cited to see how this team
has grown.
"I've seen more than any
other year in this program,
a growth not only from
the physical standpoint
but also from the mental
standpoint. I'm real eager
to see how they respond to
this season."

They also have plenty of
motivation from last sea-

Morrow said. "When we
first got back into spring

that we wanted to slack
