Attempted murder suspect nabbed


A Graceville man accused of trying
to kill his father with a machete last
Saturday was captured in Jefferson
County late Sunday afternoon, a day
after allegedly attacking his father,
then stealing his truck and one of his
Wendel Gene Seaman, 36, of 4001
Highway 77, was pulled over by the
Florida Highway Patrol and arrested
without incident Sunday around
5:30 p.m. Eastern Time,, according
to a press release from the Jackson

county Sheriff's Office. Jefferson
County Sheriff's Office assisted FHP
at the stop.
,, Seaman is charged
S in the case with' at-
tempted felony mur-
dqr, grand theft of a
I motor vehicle, and
grand theft of a firIe-
Seaman arm. Jackson County
Sheriff Lou Roberts
said it's his understanding that, at
the time of the traffic stop, Seaman
was driving his father's truck, a 1989
burgundy and silver Chevrolet, and
that the tag it bore was the one as-

signed to the vehicle.
Authorities had been called to Sea-
man's residence Saturday on reports
of a possible stabbing at the address.
When they arrived, they were told
that Seaman had struck his father in
the back of the neck with a machete
as his elder opened the refrigera-
tor door in the family residence in
:Graceville, and that Seaman then
bound his father's hands with duct
tape. Officials say Seaman allegedly
threatened to kill his dad. His father
was able to get away temporarily

Bruce Baldwin talks with city commissioners about
plans for the Marianna Health and Rehabilitation Center
expansion project, Tuesday, Sept. 3, in Marianna.

Special city

The city of Marianna is
looking to hire a health-
care facility design con-
sultant to help push the
upcoming Marianna
Health and Rehabilitation
Center expanst6n proj-
ect in the right direction,
with an eye on indus-
try innovation and cost
That's how MHRC con-,
sultant Bruce Baldwin
presented the hiring pro-
posal to city commission-

ers during that board's
regular September meet-
ing. But not all members
were keen on the idea.
The expansion project,
which Baldwin loosely
estimated as costing $1.5
to million in MHRC cash
reserves, will involve de-
' molishing the old Health
Department building,
a new 7,000- to 10,000-
square-foot addition to
the existing MHRC facility
to house therapy and re-
storative care programs,,
and possibly private pa-
tient rooms and office
space, plus renovating:

Lake Mary police officers
' were still investigating the
encounter as a domestic
dispute, but no charges
had been filed Monday af-

being questioned by po-

She said she was scared
because she wasn't sure
what Zimmerman was ca-

she changed her story and
said she never saw a fire-

an iPad from her hand and
smashed it.
Zimmerman's attorney,
MNark O'MNlara, said his cli-

never punched his father-

termed a homicide caused
primarily by starvation.
Nathalyz also had some
bruising, but Clark said
that may have come from
flea, bug or rodent bites at
the house, which he said
was in "bad shape."

In this Tuesday photograph, Miss Iowa, Nicoile Kelly (front row,
second from left) stands with other Miss America contestants
during arrival ceremonies in Atlantic City, N.J. Kelly was born
without part of her left forearm and says she has never let her
disability get in the way of doing what she wanted.

The Associated Press

- Born without her left
forearm, Nicole Kelly has
been overcoming dis-
ability her entire life, be it
playing baseball, dancing
or diving.
Now representing Iowa
in the Miss America pag-
eant, Kelly hopes to win
the crown and inspire oth-
ers to overcome their own
difficulties. She chooses
to focus on what she has.
rather-than what she lacks.
"The reason I'm here is
not because I'm a public.
interest story," she told '
The Associated'Press in
an interview Monday, in
between rehearsals for
three nights of preliminary
competition that starts
Tuesday. "I'm here not
because I look different
but because I have the
intelligence, I have the
ability and all the things
that MissAmerica needs
to have.
"I'm proud to represent

those who. look differ-
ently, but it's about what
you can do and howyou
celebrate it," she said. "I'm
just like you."
She said she developed
an outgoing personality
"that would not give in to
'no'" as away to deal with
the stares she often got.
The 23-year-old resident
of Keokuk, Iowa, a Missis-
sippi River town, Kelly said
she never let her disability
stop her from doing what
she wanted. She played
baseball, swam and dove,
and danced. ,
"I just did it," she said.
"There never was an issue.
No excuses, nor should
there have been.",
Kelly said people she
met while growing up gen-
erally went through three
phases: the first Was when
she approached them,
because they were too
'intimidated to approach
her. The second was when
they grew comfortable
enough to ask her ques-.
tions like, "How do you

do your hair?" or "How do.
you tie your shoes?"
The third phase "was
when they completely for-
got about it" and just saw
her as Nikki, not a person
with a disability.
She entered her first
pageant this January, fell
in love with the competi-
tion and won, advancing
through the ranks to win

Court gets sanity report in Colo

Associated Press

DENVER -Prosecutors
and defense lawyers in the
Colorado theater shootings
are getting their first look
at a long-awaited opinion
from a-state psychiatrist on
whether defendant James
Holmes was legally insane

and injured 70..
The report from the state
mental .hospital is secret,

fense lawyers cannot speak
outside court about it be-
cause of a gag order. Its
contents may be discussed

about in a motion.

up to the jury in Holmes'

But 'it will be a critical
piece of evidence as jurors

victed of'murder and sen-

When the time came to
move 107-year-old Mon-
roe Isadore to a newhome,
police say he resisted and
barricaded himself inside.
Authorities tried using a
camera to monitor him,
along with negotiating
tactics, and finally gas to
get him to come out.
None of it worked.
So, a SWAT team went
inside and was greeted by
gunfire, authorities say.
The team fired back, and
Isadore died.
The weekend confronta-

anything differently? '

Sudden plan: Syria to dispose of chemical weapons?

The Associated Press

a rapid and remarkable
chain of events, Syria wel-
comed the idea of turn-
ing over all of its chemical
weapons for destruction
on Monday, and President
Barack Obama, though ex-
pressing deep skepticism,
declared it a "potentially
positive development" that
could head off the threats
of U.S. air strikes that have
set the world on edge.
The administration
pressed ahead in its ef-
forts to persuade Congress'
to authorize a military
strike, and Obama said the
day's developments were
doubtlessly due in part to
the "credible possibility"
of that action. He stuck to
his plan to address the na-
tion Tuesday night, while
the Senate Democratic
leader postponed a. vote
on authorization.
The sudden develop-
ments broke into the
open when Rlussia's for-
eign minister, seizing
on what appeared, at the
time to be an off-the-cuff
remark by' Secretary 'of
State John Kerry, appeared
in Moscow alongside his
Syrian counterpart and
proposed the chemical
weapons .turnover and
destruction. The, Syr-
ian quickly embraced the
idea, and before long U.N.
'Secretary-General ,Ban
Ki-moon did, too..,
Obama, who appeared
Monday evening in
interviews on six TV net-
works, said the idea actu-
ally had been broached

in his 20-minute, meeting
with Russian' President
Vladimir. Putin last week
on the sidelines of an eco-
nomic summit in St. Pe-
tersburg, Russia. Obama
said he directed Kerry to
have more conversations
with the Russians and "run
this to ground."
The president said. he
would "absolutely", halt
a U.S. military strike if
Syria's stockpiles were suc-
cessfully 'secured, though
he remained skeptical
about, Assad's willing-
ness to carry out the steps
"My objective here has
'always been to deal with
a very specific problem,"
Obama said in an interview
with ABC News. "If we can

do that without a military
strike, that, is overwhelm-
, mglymy preference."
SHe cast Russia's pro-
posal as a direct result of
the 'pressure being felt by
Syria because ofthe threat'
of a U.S. strike and warned
that he would not allow the
idea to-be used as a stalling
"I don't think that we
would have gotten to
this point unless- we
had maintained a credible
possibility of a military
strike, 'and' I' don't think
now is the time for us to let
up on that," he said.
Still, the White House
has had scant success in
persuading members of
Congress including
Democrats to support

the idea of military action.
Senators continued to an-
nounce their opposition
through the day.
Th8 proposal from Rus-
sian Foreign Minister
Sergey Lavrov came just.,
hours, after Kerry.told re-
porters in London that
Assad could avoid a'U.S.
attack and resolve the cri-
sis surrounding the use of
chemical weapons by sur-
rendering control of "every
single bit" of his arsenal
to the international com-
munity by the end -of the
The State Department
sought to tamp down the
potential impact of Kerry's
comments by calling them
a "rhetorical" response to
a hypothetical question

and not "a proposal." But
their importance became
more clear as the day
Kerry spoke by phone
with Lavrov shortly after
making his comments in
London, and officials fa-
miliar with the call said
Lavrov had told Kerry that
he had seen the remarks
and would be issuing a
public statement. Kerry
told Lavrov that his com-
ments were not a pro-
posal but the U.S. would
be willing to review a seri-
ous plan, the officials said.,
They stressed that he made
clear that Lavrov could not
present the idea as a joint
U.S.-Russian proposal.
The officials commented
only on condition of ano-
nymity because they were
not authorized to describe
the information publicly.
British 'Prime Minister
David Camerbn said the
proposal was worth ex-
ploring, the French foreign
ministry said it deserved
close examination and
former Secretary of State
Hillary Rodham Clinton
said, any move by Syria
to surrender its chemi-
cal weapons would be an
"important step." Clinton,
in contrast with the White
House and State Depart-
ment, credited Kerry
and Russia jointly for the

cidedly uphill fight to win

tion for the use of force --

American public and
Monday's developments,
planned or not, could pro-

vide him with a way out of
a messy political and for-
eign policy bind.
The U.S. accuses Assad's
government of being be-
hind an attack using sarin
gas in. a Damascus suburb
on Aug. 21, .killing 1,429
people. Some other esti-
mates of the deaths are
lower, but there is wide
agreement that chemi-
cal weapons were used.
Experts believe that the
Syrian government's arse-
nal of chemical weapons
includes nerve agents like
sarin, tabun and \9X as well
as mustard gas.
In an interview with
Charlie Rose that was
broadcast Monday on
"CBS This Morning," Assad
denied responsibility for
the Aug. 21 attack, accused"
the Obama administration
of spreading lies without
providing a "single shred
of evidence," arid warned
that air strikes against his
nation could bring retalia-
tion. Pressed on what that
might include, Assad re-
'sponded, '!'m not fortune
teller, ...... .
Later, Monday, Syria's
foreign minister, meeting
with his Russian counter-
part in Moscow, addressed
the idea of getting rid of
any chemical weapons.
"Syria welcomes the
Russian proposal out of
-concern for the lives of
the Syrian people, the Se-
curity of our country and
because it believes in 'the
wisdom of the Russian
leadership that: seeks to
avert American aggression
against our people,",said

Disputes even broke out
- on Web-based Iranian
news sites --over the au-

Facebook pages linked to
some ministers.

Still, the overall direc-

Miami's Phillip Dorsett celebrates his first quarter touchdown
with Herb Waters against Florida duringSaturday's game in
Miami Gardens, Fla. Miami won 21-16.

Back in Top 25, MIfiami

wants to lookahead

The Associated Press ,

This was. the plan, the
one that Miami coach Al
Golden put together back
in May and June when he
actually mapped out how
every day was supposed
to go this season for the
Sept. 7i Beat Florida.
-Sept. 8: Move on from
beating Florida.
Golden's visions became
reality on both fronts this
weekend, first when his
team knocked off the for-
merly 12th-ranked Ga-
tors 21-16 on Saturday,
then when the Hurricanes
gathered to put that win
in the rear-view mirror on
Sunday. Golden tweeted
South a message at 6:33 a.m.
warning against the dan-
gers. of complacency, and
his players started filing
through the training room
three hours later, -
"I set the schedule that
we would win the game
Saturday, come in Sun-
day,' lift and, watch the
game, just to make sure
we snap 'erm back in and
stay focused arid don't let
this turn into Mardi Gras,
Golden said. "We don't
need a week's celebration
Understandable, though
there.we're things for the
Hurricanes to celebrate
on Sunday, such as re-
turning to the AP Top 25
for the first tIime in nearly
three years. Miami (2-0)
checked in at No. 15 in this
week's poll, -making the
'Hurricanes just the sixth.
team in the last decade to
go from being unranked
one week to at least 15th
the next.
It's also the first time
Golden has been the
coach of a team ranked in
"It was a good win and
everything," Golden said.
"But; hey, we're already
moved on."
The schedule for the next
Sfew'weeks looks favorable
for Miami. The Hurricanes

are off this week, then host
Savannah State on Sept. 21
and travel across the state
to Tampa for a matchup
with' South Florida on the
following Saturday. Coin-.
bined, those clubs are 0-4
so (ar, and Savannah State
has given up an almnost-
unbelievable 143. points
in its first two games.
Of course, Golden isn't
participating in. ny sort
of talk about how Miami,
.should be .4-0 ,entering
October. There's a to'n of
issues for the Hurricanes
to clean up, such as one
of the nation's worst third-
down success rates so far,,
a 5-for-25 effort that ranks
Miami 118th out of 124
teams at college football's
highest level to this point.
"We've got a lot of things
we've got to fix. ... If we
can get one thing from
,every, player this week
that they can get better at
and get into their toolbox,
that would be a successful
week for us," Golden said.
SFor a welcome change,
the talk around Miami
football is actually about
Miami football. The NCAA
investigation into Hurri-
cane athletics is still un-
resolved, and it could be
literally minutes, or days,
or weeks, or worse, before

it also hinted the future might be
now in Ann Arbor. Devini Gardner,
with four touchdown passes and a
TD run, fits'offensive coordinator
Al Borges' system better than De-

Oklahoma St. AD apologizes to Big 12 schools

The Associated Press

Oklahoma State ath-
letic director Mike Holder
apologized to his fellow
athletic directors around
,the Big 12 Conference
on Monday in advance
of what's expected to be
a scathing expose of the
"I apologizeto alltheath-
letic directors in the con-
ference for what's about to
happen, for what's about
to be said about a mem-

ber. institution,". Holder
said qt a news conference
without taking questions.
"That reflects on every-
one, all our brothers and
peers, we're very remorse-
ful about that."
The school announced
over the weekend that SI
had notified, it of the up-
coming series, which de-
tails'transgressions by the
football program starting
in 2001. Oklahoma State
said it has notified the
NCAA and launched its
own -investigation.
Sports Illustrated, in a

news release sent Monday,
gave highlights of the five-
part series that wiU begin
Tuesday with a posting
on SI.com. The magazine
says it conducted inter-
views 'with more than 60
former Oklahoma State
players who played for the
school from 2001-10.
Among the_ allegations
of misconduct and poten-
Stial NCAA violations are:
An Oklahoma State
assistant coach paid cash
bonuses to players of up
to $500 for performance.
--, Oklahoma State

boosters and at least two
assistant coaches fun-

Texas fires defensive coordinator after BYU rout

The Associated.Press

AUSTIN, Texas Texas
fired defensive 'coordina-.
tor Manny Diaz on Sunday,
less than 24 hours after one
of the worst defensive per-
formances in the history of
the program.
Longhorns coach Mack
Brown announced that for-
mer Longhorns defensive
coordinator and Syracuse
coach iGreg Robinson will
take over the job.
"Our performance on
defense last night was un-
acceptable, and we need to
change that," Brown said.
BYU ran for' 550 yards,
the most ever allowed by
Texas, in a .40-21 victory
against the Longhorns on
Saturday night, putting a
potential breakthrough
season on the brink of an-
other big disappointment
if the Longhorns can't fix
their defensive problems.
Texas (1-1) plays No. 25
Mississippi. (2-0) at home
on Saturday.
Brown hired Diaz after
Texas finished 5-7 in 2010
and defensive coordinator
Will Muschamp left to be
the head coach at Florida.
The hire was a surprise

considering Diaz had been
defensive coordinator just
one season at Mississippi
State, but Brown called
him a rising star in coach-
ing who br6utight energy
and new ideas to his strug-
gling program.
Aside from a blowout
loss to Oklahoma, Diaz's
first season was a success
as Texas matured into the
best defense in the Big 12.
But the unit regressed into
the one of the worst in pro-
gram history in 2012. As
the season wore on, play-
ers complained that team-
mates weren't lining up
correctly or playing hard
every game. ,
Texas hid some of those
problems with a- 9-4 fin-
ish and.a bowl victory and
Brown shrugged off ques-
tions if,Diaz would be re-
placed. But after the loss to
BYU, Diaz's tenure was be-
ing measured in minutes.
Television cameras dur-
ing the game showed
Brown huddled with Diaz
and defensive backs coach
'Duane Akina seemingly
pleading with them to find
a way to stop BYU's ma-
rauding rushing attack. ,
Brown refused to say in

his postgame news confer-
ence if he planned to keep
Diaz on the job, andby Sun-
day afternoon announced
that he will be reassigned
within the athletic depart-
ment'. Diaz makes more
than $600,000 a year.
Brown knew he was tak-
ing a chance on Diaz when
he hired him. Diaz, who
once worked at ESPN and
thought he wanted a career
in sports" journalism, was
inspired to pursue coach-
ing after helping cover a Bill
Parcells news conference,.
Diaz's career took him
from graduate assistant
role at Florida State to
North Carolina State and
Middle Tennessee. He was
defensive coordinator at
Middle Tennessee for four

seasons before taking the
same job at Mississippi
State. Diaz hadn't applied'
for the Texas job until
Brown called him.,
In Robinson, Brown gets
a coordinator with NFL ex-'
perience who has rescued
the Texas defense before.
Robinson spent one sea-
son with Texas in 2004,
helping guide the Long-
horns to an 11-1 finish and
a Rose Bowl victory' over
Michigan and was notable
for his fiery personality on
the sideline. Robinson left
Texas to be the head coach
at Syracuse, where he spent
four dreadful seasons, go-
ing 10-37. He served as
Michigan's defensive coor-
dinator under Rich Rodri-
guez in 2009 and '10, and

then returned to Texas in
July as a football analyst.
"He knows this place, did
a terrific job in leading our
defense before, and I'm ex-
cited to have him back on
the field," BroWn said.
Robinson also spent 14
years in the :NFL, most
notably as defensive coor-
dinator when the Denver

Broncos won consecutive
Super Bowls in 1997-1998.
"This is a tough deal for
everyone involved, but I
love the University of Texas
and coach Brown has been
wonderful to me," Rob-
inson said in a statement
released by the team. "I'll
do anything I can to help

Edwin PercyWhipple, a 19th-century essayist, wrote,
"Talent jogs to conclusions to which Genihs takes gi-

That is fine as long as Genius isn't missing the mark,

much better than jumping to the wrong conclusion.

and returns the two (lowest of three remaining cards).
South wins with his king and cashes the club ace, but
East discards a spade. How should declarer proceed
from there? Also, what do you think of the bidding?
Taking those questions in reverse order, South
should open two no-trump. He has 21 prime points
with so many aces and kings. To open one diamond
and rebid three clubs would probably work fine here;
but it would risk missing a slam because partner
Should not expect such a powerful hand.
The bad club break is bothersome, but might South
still take nine tricks?
Yes, if he can collect one spade, three hearts, three
diamonds and two clubs. This seems to require the
diamond finesse. And that is a favorite, given that West
started with five spades and four clubs. (The odds
have gone up from 50 to 69 percent.),
SHowever, here, if Genius immediately takes his
three hearts tricks ending on the board and plays
a diamond to his jack, he goes down. The talented
player cashes his diainond ace first, just in case

Clowney was clearly frustrated
after beingheld to three tackles,

"I told the coaches, man, you've

the defensive end said. "In the

Urban Meyer said on Mon-

He wag a little stiff, which,
the first 48 hours after that,

Miller was hurt on Ohio
State's first offensive pos-
session when he kept the
ball on a passing play and
was pinned between two
defenders, twisted and fell
backward to the turf.
He did not return to the
game. Kenny Guiton came
in to pass for two touch-
downs and run for another
score in his place.
Meyer, who confirmed
that the junior's injury was
a sprained medial-collateral
ligament, said he would not

and stick with Guiton to al-
