Next public hearing set for Sept. 18


BY ANGIE COOK
acook@jcfloridan.com

MARIANNA The annual city
budget process ticked one more
box this week, moving closer to
finalizing financial matters be-
fore the start of the next fiscal
year.


In city hallWednesday evening,
commissioners conducted thie
first of two public hearings on
the matter and voted 4-0 (Com-
missioner John Roberts was ab-
sent) to adopt resolutions .setting
the tentative 2013-14 budget and
village (tax) rate.
Next year's' more than $33 mil-


lion budget utilizes the same
millage rate -2.8164 as this
year. As reported in July, that
same rate will bring in more
money for Marianna. Due to an
uptick in assessed taxable value
of property.inside the city limits,
that millage rate carryover is ex-
pected to yield the city govern-M
ment approximately $42,000 in
addition revenue, which, can be
used for municipal services.


The process is expected to con-
tinue as planned,. allowing for
the budget to take effect on Oct.
1 and end Sept. 30, 2014. The
next steps in the process are:
)) Sept. 15 -- Publication of a
legally required advertisement
regarding the adoption of the
final budget and millage rate

lic fearing regarding the final
budget and millage rate. Imme-
diately following, commission-

ing, during which they vote on

get and rate. ,

S e omef the dollars
raised in Jackson
County's UnitedWay
campaign will go to people
like Mary Brpgdon, a onle-
time meth-addicted mother.
She hadjust gotten out of
prison when she fond out
she was pregnant with her
first child. She was feel-
ing scared about that, and
didn't have much personal
support in her corner. But
things got much better when
she hooked up with Healthy
Families North Florida,


a United Way recipient
organization.
SThe organization reached
out to her before her baby
was born, having received
her information from health
officials as a potential refer-
ral. Brogdon jumped at the
offer of help.
She said the family sup-
port worker assigned to her,
JessicaVelez, has been a
godsend. Velez came to her
home weekly when she was
pregnant, helping her pre-
pare for what was to come:

Smoke tests coming
for some lines
BYANGI COOK

MARIANNA The sewer line
rehabilitation work currently un-
derway inside the'Marianna city
limits, which aims to replace thou-
sands of linear feet of aging pipe,
has months to go before it's com-
plete. But a change to. part of the
Project's objectives, approved this
week by the city commission, may
help identify the cause ofproblems
the city sewer system faces during
heavy rain.. .
Intense weather events, like the
multi-day downpours the area
saw last month, can cause the city
sewer system to. register high read-
ings on pumping station run times
and treatment plant flow gauges
- both indications that storm-
or surface-water is getting 'in the
system, according to a letter City
Manager Jim Dean received from
Preble-Rish Inc., the company
providing engineering and tech-
nical services during construction
for the ,$3.3-million-dollar' sewer
rehab project.

Broadband network


is 80 percent complete

Negotiations underway with potential system manager


BY DEBORAH BUCKHALTER
dbijchaliter,'lc:fliridarI corr

Jackson County Commissioners
agreed this week to 'write a letter
supporting Opportunity Florida's
attempt to access an annual state
grant of up to $100,000 to support
economic growth in Jackson and
eight more surrounding rural coun-
ties it assists.
Opportunity Florida representa-
tive Jim Brook appeared before the
board Tuesday, giving a report on
the organization's various econom-
ic activities in arid around Jackson
County over the past several years,
also talking more specifically about
one of its largest projects ever:
Helping bring more broadbatid
service to rural areas of Florida.
He said build-out of the broad-
band "middle mile" infrastruc-
ture that gives internet providers
what they need to bring the service


to end users-- is 80 percent com-
plete and should be done bythe end
of December. That's when the $23
million grant which helped fund
the project will end. The multi-mil-
lion-dollar grant paid for hardware
that has been placed on 22munici-
pal water towers and commercial
towers in North Florida, and on
others in a group, of south-central
counties that together make up the
broadband alliance that Oppor-
tunity helps lead. About six weeks
ago, some of that equipment was,
installed on Marianna's water tower
near Lafayette Street.
The cost of the basic infrastruc-
. ture was such that private compa-
nies could not justify the expense
'as a business move, since the cus-
tomer base in rural areas would be
too small to recoup expenses and
make a profit within a reasonable

Colleges split.
$20 million based
on outcomes
TALLAHASSEE -For .
the first time ever, Flori'
day'ss universities are get- ,
ting money based on how
well their students do after
graduating.
The Florida Board of
Governors, meeting in
Sarasota, approved $20
million in perforrfiing
funding that will be split
among 11 universities.
Universities were rariked
in three different catego-
ries, including the percent
of their graduates who
were employed or con-.
'tinuing their education
one year after graduation.
The universities were
also ranked based on the
average wages earned by
graduates.
The categories were
pushed by Gov. Rick
Scott and approved by
the Florida Legislature.
There was some debate
Thursday that the rank-,
ings weren't perfect since
it's hard to obtain infor-
mation on graduates who
leave the state.

State to spend
nearly $3 million
to help with lake
TALLAHASSEE Flor-
ida is going to spend
nearly $3 million on some


immediate steps to reduce
water coming from Lake
Okeechobee into nearby.,
estuaries.
The Legislative Budget
Commission on Thursday
approved the spending
proposal that was'be-
ing pushed.by Sen. Joe
Negron, R-Stuart. ,
SThe legislative panel--
agreed to spend $2.77 mil-
liontn severalprojects.
Part of the money will go
to pump stations to divert
water south of the lake in
order to reduce the need
to discharge water to,'
adjacent water bodies.
Discharges from Lake
Okeechobee this year have
been blamed for pollu-
tion and fish kills in the St.
Lucie Estuary and Caloo-
sahatchee River. The U.S.
, Army Corps of Engineers
says it must discharge
water in response to high
. water levels..

Lessons learned from church spies


he first thing Chuck
Lawless noticed
when he entered
the church foyer was that,
the welcome center was
empty, which made it
pretty hard for a newcom-
er to feel welcomed on a
routine Sunday morning.
After several minutes of
hanging around trying to
look conspicuous, a staff
member at this particular
Pennsylvania congrega- .
tion approached him and
asked if he needed help.
Lawless asked a perfectly
normal newcomer ques-'
lion: Was there a small-
group Bible study of some
kind that he could visit?
Unaware that Lawless
was a trained "church spy"
who was there conduct-
ing research, the staffer
gave a surprisingly candid
answer: "Do you want to
visit 4 friendly one?"
By all means, said Law-
less. He was then taken
to a large, empty room,
where he deliberately
sat next to the door. This
meant that every person
Swho entered the class
approximately 66 in all
-had to walk past him.
"It was wonderful .
S,:class, with a real sense of
('community," said Law-
.* less, who is'an evangelism
Professor and the gradu-.
ate dean at Southeastern
Baptist Theological Semi-
narn.- in Wake Forest, N.C.
"People shared what was
happening in their lives
and some people shed
tears as others prayed for
them. It was, really nice....
"Not a single person
S spoke to me or asked what
I was doing there. And this
was their friendly class."
Later, while preparing
Ships confidential report,
Lawless asked one of the
church's leaders why the
: class members were so
: unfriendly. The blunt
: answer: "That's just our
:: culture around here."
S Actually, consultants


who do church "spy" work
know that outsiders rarely

visit most

tions, said
Lawless,'
who does most of his work
on these issues through'
the Society for Church
Consulting in Louisville,
Ky
'Apathy is the norm in
many congregations, and
their leaders ordained
or among the laity -- tend
to fall into other predict-
able traps as well, which
he included in a recent
online essay entitled,
"Eight Confessions of-
Church Spies.' But every-
,thingstarts with whether
or not church people are
friendly and welcoming.
"We tell our church,
spiesthatwe want them
to be alert from their:
arrival in the parking lot
until they walk out the '
Sdoor'-tojust howmany
people intentionally seek
to interact with them in
a friendly manner," said
SLawless in a telephone
interview. "We tell them to
Count ever yhing except
for that moment in the
:.service when the pas-
, tor.ells everyone to turn
around a greet visitors.
If the pastor tells people
to do something, then it
doesn't count."
SOther consistent
problems include church
websites that are boring,
broken or full of out-of-
date information, as well
:as church facilities that
include few if any signs to.
help visitors find their way
Around. :.,
Lawless noted that many
churches seem to have no
strategic vision for how
to help newcomers, other
than one or two people at


the front door with "greet-
er" badges pinned to their
chests. Some churches
don't have clearly marked
guest parking. Many
are poorly equipped to
promise parents that their
* children will be safe and.
secure.
SWay too many boring,
abstract, Bible-deficient
sermons? Check.
Music ministries that
show a lack of effort or, ,:.
just as bad, feature wor-
ship-team leaders who are
hamming it up like they're
on a TV soundstage?
Check. ,
"We tell bur spies... that
if it seems like they have
walled into an American
Idol' show, then they have
to include that in their
reports," said Lawless.
In the end, the most im-
portant thing clergy and
laypeople mustrealize is,.
that manyvisitors who "'_
dare to walk through their :
door's are there because.
they. are experiencing,',:
some kind of crisis in ''
, their lives. They are seek-
ing help anda sense of
community, said Lawless,
Sbutt they are also afraid
of being ambushed and
smothered.
Most newcomers and .
seekers are "afraid of being,
askedqu'festions that they,
ar.e not ready to answer.
They're afraid of being :
embarrassed," 'he said.,
:,"They are afraid and they
are confused and the last.'
thing you can afford to ;.
do is leave them standing
there alone wondering,
'What in theworld is going
,on?' ;
"You have to welcome '
them and let them know
that this is a safe place to
find fellowship and help.
But it's also important not
to scare them off."

Putnam: Water


No. 1 issue facing


Florida0s future


The Associated Press

ORLANDO- Florida's
freshwater supply is its
top problem as it tries
to maintain economic
and residential growth,
Agriculture Commis-
sioner Adam Putnam
said during a discussion
Thursday at a leadership
summit.
"If you think about the
golden eggs that Florida
depends on tourism,
Agriculture construction
-.they're all dependent
on water," Putnam said
as he moderated a panel
discussion at the first
Sayfie Review Florida
Leaders Summit. "This
is a critically important
'issue-and ther're'all
inseparable."
But he noted that
Florida has also histori-
cally made bad choices,'
such as trying to build a
cross-state barge canal,
straightening arid then
unstraightening the Kis-
simmee River and other
water projects,
"There's been some
chapters in our history
where we didn't exacdy '
- get it right, and we need
to get it right," he said.
The discussion came
during a two-day sum-
mit organized by lawyer,
lobbyist, GOP fundraiser
and news aggregator.
Justin Sayfie. The meet-
ing included a bipartisan
mix of leaders from state.
and local government, -
Sbusiness groups, educa-
tion leaders, nonprofit
groups, the media and
more.
Florida's demand for
water is expected to
increase by about 1,4
Billion gallons a day to
7.9 billion gallons in the
year 2030, said Melissa
Meeker, former head -of
th'e South FloridaWater
Management District and
current vice president of
CSA Ocean Sciences, .

ing firm..,
The .stateneeds to find
a sustainable water sup-
ply if it wants to continue
to grow, attract new in-
Sdustries, meet agricultur-


al needs and still protect
the environment, Meeker
said. While conservation
is important, it won't be
enough, she said. '
S"The easy things have
been done already," she
said.
I She advocated for great
water reuse, increased
water storage and recov-
ery and desalinization
and other alternative
water sources, saying tap-
ping-traditional sources
are either too costly or
unavailable.
"It's no longer accept-
able for'us to use water
just once and then dis-
pose of it," Meeker said.
She said that some of.
the 1.7 billion gallons of
water that flows.into the
ocean and Gulf each day
must be captured and
stored for use.
"We have 1.7 billion
gallons of water going to
tide. Just lost forever," she
said.
Author and journalist
Cynthia Barnett, who
Specializes in water -
issues, agreed. But she
also said Florida can do a
much better jbb conserv--
Sing water.
SShe said Florida should
decide to use 2 billion
less gallons of water per
.day by 2025 instead of 2
billiongallons more.
"I think it's that dra-
.matic. I think we're that.
wasteful," she said. "It's
possible to live very dif-
" ferently and live well and
I think we will. I think we
can still cut our water use
inhalf." .
The summit'also fea-
tures discussions on.edu-
cation, energy, tourism,
transportation and more.
Sayfie said he will make it
an annual event.
S"This.is historic.We've,
neverhad a gathering '
like this in the state's his-
tory and we're going .
to build on it going
forward each year, ,
Sayfie said, adding that
he hopes people will
look at long-term issues .
facing the state. "Change
happens so fast, we want '
to make sure that Florida
is taking advantage of
that."' .

Women

outrun

men in job

rebound
The Associated Press

WASHINGTON The
slowly recovering U.S. job
market has helped women
rebound faster than men:
They've now regained all
the jobs they lost to the
Great Recession. Men are
still 2.1 million jobs short.
And the gender gap is
expected to persist until
the job market is much
healthier.
To understand why,
consider the kinds of jobs
that are, and aren't, being
added.
Lower-wage industries,
like retail, education, res-
taurants and hotels, have
been hiring the fastest.
Women are predominant
in those areas. Men, by
contrast, dominate sectors
like construction and man-
ufacturing, which have yet
to recover millions of jobs
lost in the recession.
"It's a segregated labor
market, and men and
women do work in differ-
ent industries, and even
in different areas within
industries," says Heidi
Hartmann, an" economist
and president of the In-
stitute for Women's Policy
Research.
Economists have long
known that the recession
hit men the hardest. "A
man-cession," some have
called it. Or a "she-covery."
The August jobs report
issued last week spotlight-
ed the divergence:
The unemployment rate
for women was 6.8 percent
nearly a full percentage
point less than the 7.7 per-
cent rate for men.
All told, 68 million wom-
en said theywere employed
last month. That topped
the 67.97 million who had
jobs when the recession
began in December 2007,
the government says.
Among men, 76.2 million
were employed last month.


Colorado flooding cuts off towns, kills 3

LYONS, Colo. Heavy

NASA: Voyager probee


Vhas left the solar system


The Associated Press

LOS ANGELES -
NASA's Voyager 1 probe
has left the solar sys-
tem, boldly going where,
no machine has gone
before.
Thirty-six years after
it rocketed away from,
Earth,. the plutonium-
powered spacecraft has
escaped the sun's influ-
ence and is now cruising
111/2 billion miles away
in interstellar space, or
the vast, cold emptiness
between the stars, NASA
said Thursday..
And just in case it en-
counters intelligent life
out there, it is carrying
a gold-plated, 1970s-
era phonograph record
with multicultural greet-
ings from Earth, photos
and songs, including
Chuck Berry's "Johnny
B. Goode," along with
Beethoven, Bach, Mozart
and Louis Armstrong.
Never before has a
man-made object left
the solar system as it is
commonly understood.
"We made it," said an
ecstatic Ed Stone, the
mission's chief scientist,
who waited decades for
this moment.
NASA celebrated by
playing the "Star Trek"
theme at a news confer-
ence in Washington.
Voyager 1 actually
made its exit more than
a year agQ, scientists
said. But since there's
no "Welcome to Inter-
stellar Space" sign out
there, NASA waited for
more evidence before
concluding that the
probe had in fact broken
out of the hot plasma
bubble surrounding the
planets.
Voyager 1, which is
about the size of a small
car, is drifting in a part
of the universe littered
with the remnants of an-
cient star explosions.

It will study exotic
particles and other phe-
nomena and will radio
the data back to Earth,
where the Voyager team
awaits the starship's dis-
coveries. It takes about
17 hours for its signal to
reach Earth.
While Voyager 1 may
have left the solar sys-
tem as most people
understand it, it still
has hundreds, perhaps
thousands, of years to
go before bidding adieu
to the last icy bod-
ies that make up our
neighborhood.
At the rate it is going, it
would take 40,000 years
to reach the nearest star,
Alpha Centauri.
Voyager l's odyssey
began in 1977 when
the 'spacecraft and its
twin, Voyager 2, were
launched on a tour of
the gas giant planets of
the solar system. .
After beaming back
dazzling postcard views
of Jupiter's giant red
spot and Saturn's shim-
mering rings, Voyager 2
hopscotched to Uranus
and Neptune. Mean-
while, Voyager 1 used
Saturn as a gravitational
slingshot to power itself
past Pluto.
Last year, scientists
monitoring Voyager 1
noticed strange hap-
penings that suggested


fiber networks or other
systems. Brook said it is
too soon to speculate on
how much monthly ser-
vice might cost consum-
ers, and said the first to re-
ceive the service could be
entities in municipal areas
that already have broad-
band service but need
more and/or more afford-
able coverage blocks.

ral Broadband Alliance

the sun suddenly van-
ished. Also, there was a
spike in galactic cosmic
rays bursting in from the
outside.
Since there-was no de-
tectable change in the
direction of the magnet-
ic field lines, the team
assumed the far-flung
craft was still in the he-
liosphere, or the vast
bubble of charged par-
ticles around the sun.
The Voyager team
patiently waited for a
change in magnetic field
direction thought to
be the telltale 'sign of a
cosmic border crossing.
But in the meantime,
a chance solar eruption
that shoolk Voyager I
last spring provided the
scientists with the data
they needed,' convincing
them the boundary had
been crossed in August
of last year.
With the new data, "it
took us 10 seconds to
realize we were in inter-
stellar space," said Don
Gurnett, a Voyager sci-
entist at the University
of Iowa.
Voyager 2 trails behind
at 9 1/2 billion miles
from the sun. It may
take another three years
before Voyager 2 joins its
twin on the other side.

of Florida's land area and
boast a collective popu-

Of those residents, only
about 39 percent have

goal of the Alliance is to

"The words of the Syrian
regime in our judgment
are simply not enough."
"This is not a game,")

to turn over the weapons

"We believe there is

Kerry declared. And he
Kept alive the.threat of U.S.
military action, saying the
turnover of weapons must
be complete, verifiable and
timely- "anrd finally, there
ought to consequences if it
doesn't take place."
SAdding to the: drama,
Russian President, Vladi-
mir Putin weighed in from
afar, raising eyebrows with
an opinion piece in The
NewYork Times that chid-
ed Americans for seeing
themselves as "excepdon-
al." That was an apparent
reference to' a comment


, THEASSOCIATED'PRESS
U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry speaks next to Russian For-
eign Minister Sergey Lavrov (right) during a press conference
before, their meeting to discuss the ongoing crisis in Syria, in
Geneva; Switzerland, on Thursday.


President Barack Obama
made in his Syria speech
Tuesday night, explaining
why he felt the U.S. need-
ed to take action. Congress
has shown little inclina-
tion to authorize military
action, and a vote on that
has been put off.
Putin also warned that
a U.S. strike against Syria
because pf chemical weap-
ons use could unleash new
terrorist attacks. And he
still maintained there is
"every reason to believe"
the weapons were used by
,rebels and not by Assad's
military In Washington,
Obama's spokesman said
Russia was "isolated and
alone" in that view.
Obama, for his part, said
simply that he was hoping
for "a concrete result" from
the talks.
The back-and-forth was
a stark indication of the
challenging work ahead
as Kerry, ; Lavrov and
their, teams of chemical
weapons experts, plunge
into talks aimed at find-
ing agreement on how to
dismantle the chemical
weapons amid the confu-
sion and danger of Syria's


civil war..
Lavrov seemed to con-
tradict Kerry's negative
view of Syrian President
Bashar Assad's offer to
provide details on his
country's chemical arse-
nal beginning 30 days after
it signs an international
convention banning such
weapons. Syria's ambassa-
dor to the United Nations
said that as 'of Thursday
his country had become .a
full member of the treaty,
which requires destruc-
tion of all chemical weap-
ons. However; the United
Nations said it will'take at'
least another 30. days..
The Russian said the ini-
tiative'. must' proceed "in
strict compliance with the
rules that are established
by the Organization for the
Prohibition 'of Chemical
Weapons." That suggests
Russia does not agree with
the U.S. that this is an ex-
ceptional case and that
Syria should face tough,'
er standards than other
countries. .
"We proceed from the
fact that the solution to
this problem will make un-
necessary any strike on the


Syrian Arab Republic, and
I am convinced that our
American colleagues, as
President Obama stated,
are firmly convinced that
we should follow a peace-
ful way of resolution to the
conflict in Syria." Lavrov.
said.
The distrust in U.S.-Rus-
sia relations was on display
even in an off-hanrid part-
ing exchange at the news
conference.
Just before it ended, Ker-
ry asked the Russian trans-
lator to repeat part of Lav-
rov's concluding remarks.
When it was clear that
Kerry wasn't going to get
an immediate re-transla-
tion, Lavrov apparently
tried to assure him that he
hadn't said anything con-
troversial. "It was OK, John,
don't worry," he said.
"You want me to take
your word for it?" Kerry
asked Lavrov. "It's a little
early for that."
They were smiling at that
point.
Shortly after making
their opening statements,
the two went into a private
dinner. Talks were to re-
sume Friday.
The meetings in Geneva
got underway as Assad, in
an interview with Russia's
Rdssiya-24. TV, said his
government, would start
submitting data on its
chemical weapons stock-
pile a month after signing
the convention. He also
said the Russian proposal
for 'securing the weapons
could work only if the U.S.
halted threats of military
action. -
But Kerry, who met ear-
lier Thursdaywith Lakhdar
Brahimi, the U.N.-Arab.
League envoy for, Syria,
made clear the threat
remains. .

Cubans wear yellow


ribbons for agents


jailedin the U.S.


The Associated Press

HAVANA Cubans
tied yellow ribbons to
homes, trees and lamp-
posts across the capital
Thursday, in an organized
mass campaign to press
for the return of several
espionage agents impris-
oned in the United States
on the 15th anniversary of
their arrest. "
By using a symbol with
deeply held cultural sig-
nificance for many Amer-
icans, the campaign aims
to rise' support for 'the
so-called Cuban Five in
the' United States where
the public is largely un-
aware of their case, even
if it's a daily cause celebre
in Cuba. '
. "The symbolism of
the yellow ribbon has a
strong impact in the mind
of Americans. It is a mes-
sage of love that appeals
to. emotions," said Rene
Gonzalez, the only one
of the Cuban Five who
has -been released from
prison.
"We are trying to send a
message that we are hu-


man too," added Gonza-
lez, who has been head-
ing the campaign.
The Five were arrested
Sept. 12, 1998, and con-
victed three years later of
spying on U.S. military in-
stallations in South Flori-
da, as well as exile groups
and politicians. Havana
maintains that they were
only monitoring mili-
tant exiles to prevent ter-
ror attacks in Cuba, and
posed no, threat to U.S.
sovereignty.
Gonzalez was paroled
in 2011 after serving most
of his sentence. Earlier
this year a U.S. judge al-
lowed him to renounce
his citizenship and return
to Cuba. The other four
remain- in prison, with
one set to walk free in
February.
Thousands of ribbons
could be seen around the
Cuban capital Thursday,
from government build-
ings to private homes and
small businesses. A huge
strip of yellow hung from
the iconic lighthouse at
El Morro fortress at the
mouth of Havana Bay.

Marianna High School pitcher
Reid Long still has one season
left with the Bulldogs, but he al-
ready knows where he'll be head-
ing at the conclusion of his prep
career after committing to play
for the Troy Trojans earlier this
week.
The left-handed hurler led .the
Bulldogs with an 8-1 record inhis
junior season to go along with a
0.95 ERA, 62 strikeouts and just
17 walks in 44 1/3 innings.
A two-way star, Long also led
Marianna with a .345 batting av-
erage and 29 hits and tied for the


team lead with 19 RBIs.
Long said his visit to the cam-
pus and his relationship with
Troy coach Bobby Pierce and*
pitching coach Brad Phillips led
him to choose the Trojans over
other interested schools such.
as Chipola, Pensacola State and
Florida Gulf Coast.
"I loved the campus and the
coaching staff, just the whole
program they have and the
potential that it has," he said.
"Coach Pierce thought I would
be a good fit for Troy and I
agreed, and that's why I decided
to commit."

Pirates seekldng first


win against Seahawks


BY DUSTIN KENT
dkent@jcfloridan.com

Through nearly one full quar-
ter, the Sneads Pirates appeared
headed for their first win of the
season in the Aug. 30 season
opener against John Paul II
Catholic before lightning put a
halt to the proceedings and ul-
timately led to the cancellation
.of the game.
After taking a 35-21 road loss
to the Baker Gators last week,
the Pirates again go searching
for their first victory tonight
when they host the Franklin
County Seahawks at 7 p.m.
The Seahawks (0-1) are also
searching for their initial win of
2013 after taking a 66-7 defeat
at the hands of South Walton in
the season opener.
It would appear to be a gold-
en opportunity for coach Bill
Thomas' Pirates to make their
first mark in the win column
this season.
"I .guess it's a good time to
have them," the coach said
of the Seahawks. "Franklin is
down this year, but we want to
concentrate on what we do and
our own execution and see if
we can fix a few things we didn't
do well last week. Hopefully we
can fix that stuff to get prepared
for district play, which is com-
ing up."
Sneads will open league com-
petition next week with a trip
to Cottondale to take on the
2-0 Hornets, but before then,
the Pirates will look to get


well against an opponent that
should provide plenty of op-:
Sportunities to do so.
Any and all repetitions will be
welcome for a Pirates team that
had less than three full quarters
of live competition one half
of a jamboree and less than a
full quarter against John Paul
- before traveling to Baker last
week.
"It's a major issue," Thomas
said of his team's lack of live"
reps. "It's not really an excuse.
You either do it right or you
don't, but part of it early on in
the season is you look at what
you do on film and try to fix
those things and show them
how you're supposed to do it
and how you did do it.
"They've got to see them-
selves what they do right or
wrong on film to really believe
it sometimes, and truthfully in
three quarters there weren't re-
ally a lot of mistakes. There were
some, but there were a lot more
in (the Baker game) than what
we've had. Part of that is attrib-
uted to the fact that we played
a really good football team, but
part of it is attributed to the fact
that we 'haven't had enough
reps to fix the little things. But
I'm glad we faced Baker; I feel
like that reallygot us ready for
the rest of the season."
One of the areas that the Pi-
rates are seeking improvement
is in their passing game, which

inpreseason rematch

The Marianna Bulldogs (1-1) have faced a
daunting early-season, schedule through the
first two weeks of 2013; starting out on the road
against 5A Bay before returning last week to take
on defending 1A champs Northview.
SBut tonight's battle with the 5AWakullaWar Ea-
gles (2-0) represents perhaps the largest hurdle
yet for 'the Bulldogs, though a solid performance
in a preseason matchup gives Marianna reason
for optimismagainst aWakulla program that has
won 23of its last 25 games.
The two teams paired up for a jamboree clas-
sic Aug. 23 in Crawfordville, with Wakulla taking
a 10-7 lead in a half before the IV teams took over
in the second half.
Marianna coach Mark Beach said hislteam took
confidence from that preseason performance,
but cautioned that both teams could and likely
: would look a bit different this time around.-
"We've grown a lot, and there's going to be some
stuff that .they're doing now that's different be-
cause it's almost a month later," he said. "They've
got some players back that weren't there for that,
and so do we. We're a different team. Our defense
is better, but we're still going to face a tough team
that will throwa lot of stuff at us."

After surprising many with two wins to start the season,

take on the West Gadsden Panthers in pursuit of a 3-0 start to
2013.
Cottondale opened the year with.a dominant, 52-26 away win
over the Freeport Bulldogs, rushing for nearly 300 yards in the road
rout.
The Hornets made their home and district debut last week against
the Wewahitchka Gators and came away with a dramatic, 22-14

Senior running back Norris Calhoun had a career night in the win
with 175 rushing yards and two touchdowns, including the game-

Alabama braces again


for Texas A&M's tempo


The Associated Press

TUSCALOOSA, Ala.
.Alabama coach .Nick
Saban knows it's become
irrelevant whether fre-
netic, no-huddle offenses
Share what he wants college
football to be.
In the case of No. 6 Texas
A&M, they're also awfully
hard to slow down.
SThat is the challenge Sat-
urday for the top-ranked
Crimson Tide at the Ag-
gies' Kyle Field. Preparing
for this kind. of up-tempo
offense was a f6cal point
-for the Tide during the
offseason.
Alabama (1-0,' 0-0 SEC)
was helpless against it in
the first quarter oflast sea-
son's loss to Texas A&M (2-
0, 0-0) before catching on
Sanid nearly rallying from a
20'-0 deficit. The no-huddle
offenses have become a
staple of the college game
whether Saban likes it
or not. . ,. '
, South'eastern Confer-
ence opponents Mississip-
pi, Kentucky and Auburn
also run variations.
"There's obviously some
things you can't do, and
you have to realize that
you can't do these things,"
Saban said. "I think we've
Small adapted to it more and
more' because we play
Against he teams more.
Whei. you play agaifist
if once or twice a year, I
think it's a tough adapta-
tion for the players. But w6
played against it eight or
nie times'last year. We'll
probably play against it at
least that much this year,
so it's becoming more
,the norm rather than the
exception. .
"I think that players
should be able to adapt
to it more readily. I know
that we've tried to prepare
our players for it more and
.more because you always
say, OK, what did we see?'
How much did we see it?
How does our practice re-
flect that?'"'
Saban caused a stir
last October when he
wondered aloud, "Is this
what we want football to
be?"

paced offenses present an
' injury hazard to defensive
players who can't get re-
:lief from subs. Malzahn
said he initially thought
that theory was a joke, and
'Bielema countered that
he's no comedian...
Texas A&M coach Kev-
in Suimlin isn't about to
downshift.
"We're going to go as fast
as we possibly can," Sumlin
said. "I haven't seen any-
thing to support the player
safety argument.'Anything
that's within in the rules,
that's the way football. is.
That's any sport. Whether
it's baseball and you're
stealing bases or whether
it's basketballU and you're a

team, that's within the
Srules.,.
"Just because you don't
want to pl.y tiiat style
doesn't mean that that's
riot the way the gaiie
should beplayed." .
It'shard to argue with the
-results. Sumlin's offenses
have ranked in the top
three 'nationally in total
yards four of the past 'five
years at Texas A&M and
Houston.
Through two games
against, weaker. compe-
tition, the. Aggies have
amassed 117 points and
1,200 yards.
Alabama allowed just
i53 points in 14 games last


season.
Texas A&M wide receiver
Malcome Kennedy .said
coaches" have stressed
tempo even more for this
game.:
"The offense is- going to
move very fast," said Ken-
nedy, who scored what
"proved to be"the decisive
touchdown last season.
'-Coach has already said
that we're focusing on tem-
po this week. Us being able
to run. and pass, and we
know it got on their nerves
last year. So 'we want to
be like that this year and
hopefully it will turn out
-well."
Texas A&M's success on
third downs kept ,the of-
fense sprinting along last
season, and Alabama's de-
fense on'its heels. The Ag-
gies had three first downs
and two touchdowns on
its'five third-down plays in
the first quarter of that 29-
24 win. They convenrted on
11 of 18 tries.
Saban .said the Aggies'
offensive prowess' isn't just
abbut speed.
"To me, it's not the
scheme," he said. "It's not
the going fast, it's their
ability to do those things
anid execute, extremely
well in terms of what they

No. 13 South Carolina


offense getting it done


The Associated Press

COLUMBIA, S.C. South Carolina
has displayed an offensive surge that
even "Fun-n-Gun" creator Steve Spur-
riet didn't fully see coming from the-No.
13 Gamecocks.
With a defense led by All-American
Jadeveon Clowney, the Gamecocks (1-1,
0-1 Southeastern Conference) figured
they'd win the way they had the past few
years by locking down' opponents
and getting just enough points to get
thewin. '
Instead, it's the offense that's making
big plays, and getting South. Carolina
ahead in games with the early struggles
of Clowney and the defense. The Game-
cocks hope to crank up the offense
again Saturday when they face Vander-
bilt (1-1, 0-1).
Spurrier said the offense has a been
bright spot for the Gamecocks.
S"We haye to have some fun playing
this game," Spurrier said. "The way you
have' fun is you play your assignment,
play with a lot of effort and make some'
plays." *i -,*;; "' '
The offense has certainly done that.
Quarterback Connor Shaw threw a 65-
yard touchdown pass to Shaq Roland on
the Gamecocks' first series of the year
to set off on a. 27-1,0 victory over North
Carolina, Shaw, a fifth-year senior, is
connecting on 60'percent ofhis. throws
and has three TD passes. -
Nick'Jones is leading the way for re-
ceivers with, two TD catches against
Georgia' -
And tailback Mike Davis has emphati-
qally answered the question of who'd re-
place Marcus Lattimore, the Gamecocks
leading rusher for each of the past three
seasons, with a 75-yard run in each of
the firsftwo games.
Davis, a sophomore and the younger
brother of former Clemson 1,000,.yard
rusher James Davis, had, a career-best
149 yards and "a touchdown run at
Georgia on'Saurday.


SSpurrier said often during the offsea-
son he expected the Gamecocks to use
their formula of strong defense and ball
control to again provide the winning
formula, as it did in leading to an SEC
East title in 2010 and consecutive 11-2
seasons the past two years.
But because of South Carolina's slow
start defensively, Shaw and the offense.
have had to strike quick to keep the
Gamecocks close. Shaw hit for a pair of
touchdown throws to Jones for 18 and
30 yards the last with 30 seconds left
in the half- to head to the break tied at
,24 with Georgia. .
Davis' 75-yard burst in the second half
against North Carolina put things out of
reach after the Tar Heels had cut a 17-
point deficit to 20-10.
Davis is averaging 9.4 yards a carry this
season, the most in the SEC for runners,
with 20 or more carries. Plus, theE5-foot-
9, 215-pound tailback has shown some
unexpected speed for a player that-big.
S"Mike has brought a different style of
running," guard Ronald Patrick said. "I
Find myself during plays' after he breaks
long runs .watching him. The way he
plays, it's amazing. He has some wheels
onhim." .
Jones,'at 5-7, has also emerged atthe
receiver spot, leading the Gamecocks
with 10 catches anid two touchdowns. A
junior, he was also a, high' school team-
mate and close friend of Lattimore and
has heard the whispers:that the 'only
reason he. came to South Carolina was
his highly'regarded classmate. ,
"Being a teammate of Marcus; I've
kind of been overlooked .since 'those
days," Jones said. "I don't mind it all. It
kind of make me want to0be better than
people think." ,
Vanderbilt coach 'James Franklin is
wary of Shaw's-big-play ability. Shaw in-
jured his shoulder In last year's.match-
up with the Commodores, yet was in
to guide the Gamecocks to the winng
touchdown in a,17-13.victory. Shaw
rushed for 92. yards.

Goodell: NFL should listen to 'Redskins' protests


The Associated Press
WASHINGTON Com-
missioner Roger Goodell
said Wednesday that the
NFL should pay atten-
tion to those offended by
the Washington Redskins
nickname.
"If we are offending one
person, we need to be
listening," Goodell said
Wednesday in an interview
with 106.7 The Fan, "and
making sure that we're do-
ing the right things to try to
address that'."
It was a subtle change in
Position for Goodell, who
had more. strongly support-
ed the nickname in his pre-
vious statements this year.
Goodell, who grew up
in Washington and was
a Redskins fan,, said it is
team ,owner Dan Snyder's
decision as'to whether the
name willbe changed.
."But," Goodell added, "it
is something that I want all
of us to go out and make
sure we're listening to our


fans, listening to people
who have a different view,
and making sure that we
continue to do what's right
to make sure that team
represents the strong tra-
dition and history that it
has for so many years."
Snyder has vowed to nev-
er change the name, but
momentum for a switch
has been growing this year.
The name was attacked
as racist at a high-profile
symposium at the Smith-
sonian. High schools that
use the nickname have
come under increasing
pressure to change it. A Na-
tive American tribe in up-
state New York ran a radio
ad campaign against the
name leading up to Mon-
day night's season opener.
Another group of Ameri-
can Indians is planning a
protest during Washing-
ton's game at Green Bay
on Sunday. Some media
outlets have stopped using
"Redskins?' The name is
also the subject of a long-


running legal challenge
from a group of Native
Americans seeking to have
the team lose its federal
trademark protection.
Ten members 'of Con-
gress recently wrote
Goodell asking that the
name be changed. At the
time, Goodell responded
by calling the name a ',"uni-
fying force that stands for
strength, courage, pride
and respect." At the Super
Bowl in 'January, Goodell
deflected a question on the
controversy by saying: "I
think Dan Snyder and the
organization have made
it very clear that they're'
proud of that heritage and
that name, and I believe
,fans are, too."
On Wednesday, Goodell;
said: "I know the, ,team
name is part of their histo-
ry and tradition, arid that's
something that's impor-.
tant to the Redskins fans.
And I think what we have
to do, though, is we have to
listen."

Dear AnnIe:My granddaughter, .
"Mary," is employed full time, has two
daughters, ages 10 and 5, and is prdg-
nant with her third child, even though a
divorce has been in the works for at least
a year. ,
The problem is that Mary expects her
mother, my daughter, "Cindy," to provide
daycare, often for 12 hours a day. Cindy
is in her 60s'and finds that her stamina
is winding down. Not only that, but her
loving care has been unappreciated, and
she has been treated with disrespect and
even contempt.
Without affordable daycare,Mary
would have to quit her job and go back .
on welfare. She is putting a real guilt .trip
and extreme pressure on Cindy, and so
are her husband and soon-to-be former
in-laws. '
i' feel that my daughter is being taken,


Bridge
.'"" *L ," ,
Vinoba Bhave, an Indian advocate for human
rights who died in 1982, said, "Innumerable actions
are going on through us all thetime. If we started
counting them, we should never come to an end."
Luckily, it is not that tough at the bridge table. But
the more counting you do, the better you will play.
Inltoday's deal, South is in four hearts, West leads
the diamond king. East overtakes with his'ace and
returns a diamond. West wins with his jack and
cashes the diamond queen, East discarding the club
two. NowWest shifts to a deceptive spade nine. How
should declarer continue?.
Note South's balancing jump overcall. This is no
longer weak, as it would have been in the second
seat. It is intermediate, showing a respectable six-
or seven-card suit and some 14-16 high-card points.
The hand will typically contain seven playing tricks
(winners).
South has lost three tricks, his book. He must play
the trump suit without loss. In normal circumstanc-
es, he would finesse through East. But whenever
an opponentopens the bidding and you buy the,
contract, always count up the high-card points.
SHere, North and South have a combined 24
points. East has already produced four, the dia-
mond ace.,That leaves at most 12 for West, yet he
opened the bidding. He must have the heart king.
(Alternatively, if East had had that king, lhe would
have had seven points and would not have passed
over his partner's opening bid.)
So declarer should win trick four and play a heart
to his ace. When the king luckily drops, South can
claim.

And now, he'sbeen shelled for a fourth

"This entire season has been a night-

Wakulla is led br a dynamic sopho-

Sophomore running backs Antonio

of the most highly touted recruits in the
Southeast and has already drawn offers
from Florida and Florida State.
"They've gota bunch of guys who can

said of the War Eagles, "They've got that
great sophomore class and they're a tal-
ented bunch, but our guys have played

it's not like they've never faced this cali-
ber of athletes before. We've competed

The captain fully intends to return

ing Bulldog football and doing what we

Marianna is coming off its best per-
formance yet; bouncing, back from a
24-7 loss to Bay High by kn'bcking 6off '
Northview 28-6.
The Bulldogs beat up the Chiefs on,
'the ground with. 282 rushing yards;,
led by Teon Long's 123 yards and tWo
touchdowns. .
Getting a similar result tonight will be
a difficult feat, but Beach said he's more
concerned about seeing his players car-
ry over thesame spirit and energy they
did against Northview and that they
have this week in practice.
We know Wakulla is a great football
team, but we just want to go out and
compete for four quarters. I don't care
about the outcome," he said. "When
you play a team like Wakulla, you just
want to battle for four quarters and let
everything else fall into place; As long
as we play with courage and focus for
four quarters, everything else will work

Long
From Page 1B
The Trojans are coming
off a' big 2013 season, in.
which they won 42 games
and eliminated Alabama in
the NCAA Regionals before
eventually getting knocked
out byvFlorida State.
It was a 14-win improve-
ment over. 2012 and the
second 40-win season for
Troy in.,the last three sea-
sons, something that Mari-
anna coach Carlan Martin
said added to the already
strong appeal that Pierce's'
[Trojans held for local play-
Sers like Long. ,
"Bobby does a great job
there and it's got 'some
obvious attractions to it
because it's an hour and
a half away, they've gota
nice facility, andit doesn't
hurt that they knocked
Alabama out of the region-
als last year." he said. "I feel

is a good place for (Long)
to go. It's just one of those
situations that I think is a
good fit for him."
Competition' will be
stiff for Long once he gets
on the campus in the fall
of 2014 after the Trojans
pulled in one of their most
*highly acclaimed recruit-
ing classes for next season,
though Martin -said that
based on his one season
coachingLong, hewouldn't
bet against him making an
early splash.
"What I like about him
and have siicp I got here
*is. his competitiveness.
The kid is a -competitor.
He doesn't like to lose, and
he's going to compete,"'' he
said. "He wants to do well
and he takes it personal
when things don't go right.
It may be a situation where
he can come in (as afresh-
Sman) in a setup role, but
I think his best baseball
days are ahead of him.

then, but if he keeps work-
ing how he's working, he'll
find a way to get his foot
in the door. They'll like his
competitive nature. He'll
figure out away to break in
there."
Working in Long's favor
in regard to early playing
time could be his versatil-
ity as a hitter and fielder,
giving him the chance to,
find a spot in the lineup as
a position player as well as
a pitcher.
It's, an opportunity that
he said Pierce told him
he'll have at Troy.
"I think my. calling is
more pitching, but I can
also hit and 'field pretty
good," Long said. "They've
got a lot of new guys com-
ing in. Hopefully I'll have
the opportunity to 'help.
them when I get there."
Until then, the pitcher
will have a full season to
work on rounding out his-
game and improving his
