A PIECE OF HISTORY


The Jackson County Chamber of Commerce has substantially reduced its asking price for the Russ House.


Russ House price reduced


BY DEBORAH BUCKHALTER
'dbuckhalter@jcfloridan.com
The Jackson County Chamber of Com-
merce has decided to sell the historic
Russ House for a significantly lower
amount that it first sought and to keep
the adjacent Brown House instead of sell-
ing the two in a package deal. The board
set two new prices, trimming down the
special price it had given lqckson County
Commissioners as well as the dramatical-
ly lowering til open market price it had
originally set for other potential buyers.
The Chamber leadership voted last
Wednesday to set the county's new spe-
cial price at $195,000, excluding the
Brown House from the deal. That's down
from the original $235,000 county price,
which had included the Brown House as
part of the deal. The Chamber also wants
to continue running its operations from
inside the Russ House rent-free for.up to
five years if the county decides to buy it.
The open market price for the house
plummeted -from roughly $550,000: to
$265,000 in the Chamber's action last
week.,
Chamber CEO/President Jeff Massey
said Monday that theorganizatioi still
hopes the county will agree to buy the


"We really don't want to sell it on the open market and see it become private;
Think the pricing we've offered is a reflection of that. The Chamber as an
entity isjust not built to maintain a house; our function should be business
advocacy, and we can do that frimn any building. But we recognize that this:
is an iconic structure and believe that it is a valuable community asset. We're
trying to give that every chance to continue and we're hoping that the county:
wilseeit0thatway." ,
Jeff Massey,
'Chamber CEO' President


house with bed tax dollars and continue
to use it as headquarters for the county's
Tourist Development Council.
Currently, the county leases the Russ
House as headquarters for the TDC, and
subleases some space back to the Cham-
ber for its operations. The house was also
made the official Visitor's Center last year,
in part because obf the TDC's: presence
there. This lease/sublease arrangement
allows the house to be'insuredat a signifi-
cantly lower premium that the Chamber
could get on its own as a private entity.
Massey said the Chamber will formally
offer the TDC this new selling price later
this month. The TDC would then present
the offer to the commission atone of that
board's meetings.


"My contention, and I think the Cham-
ber's belief overall, has been that this
needs to remain a public space. We want
to continue working with the commis-
sion toward that end," Massey said. "We
really don't want to sell it on the open
marketoand see it become private; I think
the pricing. We've offered is a reflection
of that. The Chamber as an entity is just
*not built to maintain a house; our func-
tion should be business advocacy, and
we can do that from any building. But we
recognize that this is an iconic structure
and believe that it is a valuable commu-
nity asset. We're trying to give that every
chance to continue and we're hoping that

By the time the Sneads Pirates
voyage home for their home-
coming battle against the West
Gadsden Panthers on Sept. 27,
their newly-formed booster
club will have made a few more
changes.in anf ongoing effort to
support the team and its fans.

waiting for wiring job. Citizens

and founder John McKinnie and
his. wife donated that. It came
from his wife's beauty shop, and
was an extra family asset after
they had the shop equipped with
central heat and air.
Fans will be glad ,to hear that
the sound system will be much
improved as well. The club hired
an expert from Chipola College
to find and fix the source of the
trouble that caused the speaker
system to squeak and whine. He
did away with a bad speaker and
a new one has been ordered to go

was a good dayto visit the well known swimming

BCF Olympics



builds unity


TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 17,2013 3AF


Special to the Floridan

Students at 'The Bap-
tist College of Florida in
Graceville recently partici-
pated in an afternoon full.
of fun as dorm residents,
faculty and staff, and off-
campus students came,
together to compete in a
special Baptist Collegiate
Ministries event called
"BCF Olympics."
On Monday, Sept. 9,
following a brief .word
of encouragement from
BCF President Thomas A.
Kinchen, students and fac-
ulty gathered at the flag-
poles in front of the Well-
ness Center prepared to
compete.
The first competitionwas
the tricycle race, followed
by a conference bike race
which required six people
peddling altogether with
one very proficient driver.
Other, events 'included,
a paper plane throwing
contest, lawn darts, hula
hoop tossing challenge, a
discus and shot put throw-
ing contest, ramen noodle
eating contest and a three-
member plank race.
The highlight of the BCF
Olympics was the raft or


boat race across Lake Al-
bert. Each team was given'
two pieces of plywood, a
roll of duct tape, and three.
or four garbage bags to
build a raft that could get
two people safely across
the lake. Sbme teams got
extremely creative and
built structures that re-
sembled real boats. Oth-
er teams built various
"unique"' raft-like struc-
tures hoping if would carry
-their team to victory.
Takinghome the champi-
onship gold trophywas the
off-campus student team
whose members shined in
every event as they worked
Together to beat their chal-
lengers. The second place
ribbon or "silver" status
went to the brave young la-
dies in the Ogletree dorm,
and "bronze" or third place.
was earned by the guys liv-
ing in the Ezell dorm. The
entire event was full of
laughter and fun as the ten
student teams with their
faculty/staff advisors, and,
the faculty and staff team
enjoyed the fellowship.
i "My intent for the BCF
Olympics was that' the
dorms would enjoy a time
of friendly competition

Fla. ready to pick


new education


commissioner


The AsOCiated Prei-


TALLAHASSEE lust
six weeks after the abrupt
resignation of Education
Commissioner Tony Ben-
nett, top state officials ap-
pear ready to name a per-
manent successor.
The state board that
oversees education is ex-
pected to vote Tuesday to
hire interim commissioner
Pam Stewart for the job
instead of launching a na-
tional search.
"I'm more along with
keeping the steady hand
at the helm we have right
now," said lohn Colon,
one of the members of the
Slate Board of Education.
"It might be beneficial
at this 'point to continue
what we have rather than
bring someone else up to
speed."
Stewart, 60, has already
held the interim com-
missioner post twice now
in the past year. She has
a long track record of
working in Florida and
started her career in the
'70s as a Hillsborough
County teacher. She has
also been'a principal in
Ocala and a deputy su-
perintendent in St. John's
County
Florida's education sys-
tem has had a tumultuous
summer. Officials have
been dealing with the res-
ignation of Bennett and
lingering controversy over
its A-to-F grading system
and the transition to new
standards known as the
Common Core State Stan-
dards.
Board member John
Padget said that Stewart's
invnramn nti n Cnmmnn


Core was the reason he
would support her getting
the job of commissioner.
"Pam's knowledge of the
department will enable
Florida to continue rapid
and smooth implemen-
tation of Common Core
State Standards, which is
mny first priority," Padget
said.
Stewart also has the key
backing of Gov. Rick Scott
for the job even though
Scott has refused recently
to come out in favor of the
standards that have been
adopted by 45 states and
the District of Columbia.
"Wh'ile this is the Board
of Education's decision,
we would be proud to
have Pam Stewart as com-
missioner," Scott said in a
statement. "As a parent and
grandparent, and a former
teacher and principal, her
leadership, would provide
our education system with
valuable stability and ex-
perience at, this point in
our state's history."
During a three-day
schools summit put to-
gether by Scott last month,
stability was repeated often
by school superintendents
and other education lead-
ers. Since Scott became
governor in 2011 the state
has had three education
commissioners.
Scott does not pick the
commissioner directly, but
he has a great deal of influ-
ence since he appoints the
members who sit on the
State Board of Education.
There have been concerns
that it might be hard to
launch a full-blown search
for a commissioner since
Scott is up for re-election

which unfolded about 8:20

nation's capital, less than
four miles from the White
House and two miles from
Sthe Capitol.
As for whether it may

said: "We don't have any

As Fed meets this week, it faces many uncertainties


The Associated Press

WASHINGTON The
Federal Reserve is be-
ing engulfed by the one
thing it tries to prevent:
uncertainty.
Will the Fed take its first
step Wednesday toward
reducing the extraordi-
nary stimulus it's given the
U.S. economy?
Will its eventual pullback
jolt the financial markets?
Who will fill several ex-
pected vacancies on the
Fed's policy board next
year?
And, with Lawrence
Summers' withdrawal
from consideration, who
will lead the Fed once Ben
Bernanke's term expires in
January, ending one of the
most tumultuous chap-
ters in the Fed's 100-year
history?
Uncertainty tends to
rattle investors. Starting
this week, the Fed may be-
gin to supply the answers
the financial markets are
looking for.
Here's a look at the vari-
ous uncertainties the cen-
tral bank faces:
To taper or not
-Though hiring and
economic growth in the
United States remain soft,
the Fed is widely expected
this week to slow the pace
of its, bond purchases.
Its purchases of Treasury
and mortgage bonds have
been designed to keep
long-term loan rates' low
to get people to borrow
and spend and ,invest in
the stock market.
Most economists expect
the Fed's initial ,move to
be small a reduction in
monthly purchases from
S$85 billion to $75 billion.
One reason: The Fed
for months has been pre-
paring markets for such
a move. Fed officials
wouldn't likely want to
raise further uncertainty
by failing to meet the very
expectations they had
raised..
SAnother factor: Some'
Fed officials don't think the
bond purchases are doing
much good anymore. And
they feel that by continu-
ing to flood the financial
system with cash, the Fed
might be raising the risks
of high inflation or dan-
gerous bubbles in assets
like stocks orreal estate.
Some had once expect-
ed a sharper first reduc-
tion in the Fed's purchases
of around $20 billion a
month. But that was be-

After Bernanke
Bernanke's second four-
year term as chairman ex-
pires Jan. 31, and he's made
clear he isn't interested in
another term. The specu-
lation over who will suc-
ceed him has been Wash-
ington's favorite guessing
game this summer. The
two leading candidates
had been former Treasury
Secretary Lawrenrice Sum-
mers and current Fed Vice
Chair JanetYellen.
But in a surprise. Sum-
mers announced Sunday
in a letter to Obama that
he wished to remove him-
self from consideration for
the job. Financial markets
rallied Monday. Many in-,'
vestors had feared that if
Obama chose Summers,
who was thought to be his
first choice, it could lead to
a protracted Senate conh-
firmatibn battle and per-


haps raise doubts about
the Fed's commitment to
low rates.
About, one-third of Sen-
ate Democrats had written
to Obama, urging him to
pick Yellen. Summers was
opposed by liberals for his
support as Treasury secre-
tary of bank deregulation
measures seen as contrib-
uting to the 2008 financial
crisis.
' Critics also felt' that
Summers' abrasive man-
agement style wouldn't
work in the Fed's typically'
collegial atmosphere. A-
Fed chairman represents
one) of 12 votess on policy
' and must build consensus
among a diverse group of
board members and re-
gional bank presidents
with sometimes conflict-
ing views.
Yellen, the highly re-
spectedNo. 2 official at the
Fed, is seen as likely to get
the nomination now. But
analysts said a dark horse
candidate can't be ruled
out. One could be former
Treasury Secretary Timo-
thy Geithner, who is per-
sonally close to Obama.
Yet Geithner has said re-
peatedly that he isn't in-
terested in the Fed job.
Yellein's supporters have
argued that with so many
vacancies to fill, 'her expe-
rience on the Fed board
as vice chair and before
that. as president of' the
Fed's Sanri Francisco re-
gional bank, would be a
crucial asset for the Fed's
chairmanship.


Boosters
FromPageiA '"
worked out an arrange-
ment with school offi-
cials to bring about four
acres of unused land
into what has been a
cramped parking lot ar-
ray. The property has been
cleared and smoothed. The
school system acquired a
walkbridge to let fans cross
over the swampy ditch
that separates two areas
of the parking lot, and the
booster dlub cleared the
area. With assistancefrom
the city of Sneads, ,. the
boosters had roughly 50
loads of dirt brought in
to level the. new parking
area ,and, if it's niot rain-
ing, fans can .ark on the
newly cleared dirt lot. Next
spring, the booster will sod


it so. that it will blend in
with the original parking
area..
t..he Booster Club has
spent close to $15,000
helping the team since
the group formed ear-
lier this year. McKinnie
and about a half-dozen
friends started it, but be-
fore very long, the club had
swelled to 275, each payiIig
a $20 annual membership
fee.
Together, they've raised
enough money in rib cooks
and other fundraising ef-,
forts to pay for a wide va-
riety of things for the team.
For instance, those efforts
allowed' them to buy a
dozen new revolutionary
helmets that help better
protect players from suf-
fering concussions. The
dozen helmets cost rough-
ly $2,400 collectid'ely.


They've also found dona-
tions and made deals that
saved the team thousands
of dollars. For instance, the
,team needed new block-
ing' racks. Knowing that
inmates are involved in
occupational education,
McKinnie went to see the
administrator at Apalachee
Correctional ]Institution.
He had an idea about how
to bring that potential
$20,000-plus expense way
down.
One member of the club
happens to buys'a lot of
steel in his line of work;
he bought some wholesale
for the .team so that ACI
prisoners could build the
racks. The team is working
with thosenow, andMcKin-
niesaidthey'refarabovethe
typical commercial grade,
with thicker steel and of
all-weld construction.


Also, as it happens,
ACI had discontinued its
weight-lifting program for
inmates. Before long, those
unused weights made their
way to Pirate country. Af-
ter inmates sandblasted
and repainted them, they
were added to, the Pi.
*rates' treasure trove of
equipment.
McKinnie and his fellow
boosters say they're big
fans of the football coach
they're supplying with all
these team-building items.
Bill Thomas, they say, has
'the enthusiasm to make
the Pirates big-time con-
tenders and can do a lot
with what the boosters
bring to the locker room
and field. Between them,
the varsity and junior var-
sity teams have 70 play-
ers-that's a doubling of
the roster since Thomas


took over, McKinnie said.
Thanks to the new weight
program Thomas initiated
after the weight donation,
the boys are getting bigger
and stronger, too.
And the public seems to
be paying attention to the
improvements they see.
Game attendance is av-
eraging about twice last
year's, and growing.
The boosters have a two-
fold fundraiser on tap for
the week after homecom-
ing, getting ready for the
last of the season and the
one to come. They'll put
on their third rib cook
Oct. 5, from 9 a.m. until
6 p.m. The food'can be
pre-ordered through a
booster or bought on -
site. Full slabs will cost
$20, and half-slabs go for
$10. They'll also be tak-
ing $5 donations that day


and at upcoming games
on chances to win one
of three prizes-the, vic-
tor can choose a high-end
cooler, a crossbow, or a
Remington pump shot-
gun. The winner will be an-
nounced at the last home
game of the season,'sched-
uled for' Nov. 1 against
Vernon.
The boosters will also,
from time to time, sell
team memorabilia in a tent
set up at games.
The boosters formed in
February of this year and
now, after the $15,000
worth of expenditures
taken on this year, have
about' $2,000 left in the
bank to build on in addi-
tion to $3,000 amassed in a
rainy day set-aside they're
building for emergency
purchases on through the
years.


House
From Page 1A

the county will see it that
way..
Massey said the re-
cently 'improved parking
lot that lies between the
Russ House and the Brown
House will remain with the
Brown House in any case,
because' of grant stipula-
tions related to the park-
ing lot project, but that the


county would have full ac-
cess to it if the government
became the new owner of
the Russ House.
He said the Chamber
is looking at the Brown
House as a potential new
home for Chamber opera-
tions in ithe future, but said
no firm decision on its use
has yet been made.
The sale of the Russ
House, Massey said, could
helptheChamberpaydown
the debt it owes in relation
to having purchased the


Brown House a few years
ago. The Chamber is trying
to pare down its financial
burdens and refocus its
efforts on advocacy. Over
time, the organization
became more and more
heavily involved in tourist
development issues; for
example, previous Cham-
ber CEO. Art Kimbrough
and his staff had taken on
the paid role of daily man-
agingTDC activities for the
county under a contract
for the service. Russ House


visitors also primarily ask
questions related to tour-
ism, so Chamber staffers
were involved in TDC mat-
ters in that way as well.
But last year, the TDC
hired its own director, Pam
Fuqua, and the formal
Chamber/TDC manage-
ment contract was severed
although Fuqua and her
part-time staffers still share
space in the Russ House.
When the Russ House
was first offered to, the
county last year, Jackson


County ,Commissioners
decided not to buy it, vot-
ing unanimously to pass
on the $235,000 package
deal it was offered. One
commissioner, Jeremy
Branch, cited the ongoing
cost of maintenance as a
major reason for having
turned it down.
The Russ House was built
in 1895 by Joseph Russ, a
fifth generation Jackson
Countian. It eventually fell
into disrepair but a 'ma-
jor renovation began in


its 100th year, using state
grants, and it passed into
Chamber ownership in
2000. The Chamber was
obligated to retain owner-
ship .and keep it accessible
to the public for the next
decade, but is now free to
do what it pleases with the
structure.

SGIGLIO ISLAND, Italy -
Using a vast system of steel
cables and pulleys, mari-
time engineers on Mon-
day gingerly winched the
massive hull of the Costa
Concordia off lthe reef
wljere the cruise ship cap-
sized near an Italian island
in January 2012 and were
.,poised to set it upright in
the middle of the night.
After 15 hours of slower-
than-expected progress in
. pulling the heavily listing'
Luxury liner to an upright
position, engineers said
they finally hit, the tipping
point they eagerly were
awaiting.
Shortly before midnight,
the Concordia was raised
by 25 degrees after that,
engineers, said; the effect
of gravity started giving the
rotation a boost.
Then engineers quit op-
erating the pulleys, and
by using, remote controls,
carefully began opening
valves to let seawater start
filling huge ballast tanks
That had bhen welded onto
'the already exposed side.
The weight of the water
in the tanks helped pull
the cruise liner up much
faster. ,
"We're in the final
phase' of rotation," said
Franco Gabrielli, the Ital-
ian government official
who is .overseeing the:
operation. "We have
passed the 24 degree
mark and now are fill-
ing the tanks with water,"
he told journalists early
Tuesday.
Originally, engineers
had been confident com-
plete rotation might, take
as little as 10 hours, and be
reached by early evening
Monday.
But~the timetable quickly
.went off plan.
First, an unpredicted ear-
ly morning thunderstorm
pushed back the start time.
Then the wreck resisted for
three hours .before it al-
lowed itself to be wrested

The Costa Concordia ship lies on its side on the Tuscan Island
of Giglio, Italy, Monday, Sept. 16. An international team of en-
gineers is trying a never-before attempted strategy to set up-
right the luxury liner, which capsized after striking a reef in
2012 killing 32 people.


Concordia had hit another
reef close to Giglio Island's
coastline, took on water
through a 70-meter-long
(76-yard-long), gash, and
eventually capsized a few
hundred meters (yards)
away onto another reef.
There it lay on its side
until Monday's daring en-
'gineering operation pulled
it free.
"Things are going like
they should, but on a time-
table that is dragging out,"
.Gabrielli chief of Italy's
Civil Protection Agency,
said earlier on Monday., .
Never before has such an
enormous cruise ship been
righted. Salvage workers
struggled to overcome ob-
stacle after obstacle as they
slowly inched toward their
goal of raising the crippled
ship 65 degrees to the up-
right position..
SAt one point, some of the
cables dragging the ship's
hull upright went slack,
forcing engineers to climb
the hull to fix them. "
SThe Concordia itself
didn't budge for the first
three hours after the oper-
ation began, engineer Ser-
gio Girotto told reporters.
The initial operation to
lift the ship moved it just
3 degrees toward vertical.
After 10 hours, the crippled
ship had edged upward by
just under' 13 degrees,'a
fraction of what had been
expected.
After some 6,000 tons of
force were applied using


a complex system of pul-
leys and counterweights
- Girotto said "we saw the
detachment" 'of the ship's
hull from the reef thanks
to undersea cameras.
At the waterline, a few
feet of slime-covered ship
that had been underwa-
ter slowly became vis-
ible, the first clear sign to
spectators on land that
the rotation. strategy was
working.
Thirty-two people died
on Jan. 13, 2012, when the
Concordia slammed into a
reef and toppled half-sub-
.merged on its side after
coming too close to Giglio
Island. T
The listing of the liner
was so drastic that many
lifeboats couldn't be
launched. Dozens of .the
4,200 passengers, and crew
were plucked to safety by
helicopters or jumped into
the sea and swam to shore.
The bodies of many of the
dead were retrieved inside


WORLD


water cameras did not im-
,mediately reveal any sign
o6f the two' bodies, that were
never recovered.
Engineers had dismissed
as "remote" the possibility
that the Concordia might
break apart during the sal-
vage operation but set out
absorbent barriers to catch
any leaks of toxic materials
.-from the ship.
Images transmitted
Monday by robotic div-
ing vehicles indicated the
submerged side of the
cruise ship's, hull had suf-
fered "great deformation"
from all its time on the
granite. seabed; battered
by waves and compressed
under the weight of the
ship' 15,000 tons, Girotto
said.
Officials said so far no
appreciablepollution from
inside the ship had spewed
out. Giglio Island is part of
a Tuscan marine sanctuary
where dolphins and fish
are plentiful.
The salvage, operation,
known in nautical par-
lance as parbuckling, was
used on the USS Oklahoma
in 1943 after the 'Japanese
attack on Pearl Harbor.
But the 300-meter (1,000-
'foot) Concordia has been'
described as the largest
cruise ship ever to capsize
and subsequently require
the complex-rotation so it
Scan be towed away in one
piece and dismantled for
scrap.
Engineers used re-
mote controls to guide a
synchronized system of
pulleys, counterweights

nudge the ship free. .

Anxious waiting


on word of missing


in Colorado floods


The Associated Press

LYONS, Colo. Gerald
Guntle dials his sister's,
home multiple times a
day, desperate to find out
if she survived the wide-
spread flooding that shat-
tered the Rocky Mountain
foothill town of Lyons, but
the phone just rings and
rings. .
"If there was no phone
service, I. wouldn't ex-
pect to keepl getting ring-
ing. That's what has me
scared," said .the Tucson,
Ariz., man, whose sister is
among hundreds of peo-
ple listed as missing in
-a disaster that is already
believed to have killed as
many as eight people.
Officials hope the num-
ber of missing will drop
,rapidly as communica-
tions are restored and
people are evacuated
throughout the region,,
as it did in Larimer and
Boulder counties, where
some 487 people dropped
off, missing-persons list
over theweekend.
But faced with a lack of
information, friends and
relatives are struggling to
avoid thoughts of worst-
case scenarios.
.In Esies Park, a tour-
ist haven that serves as a
first stop for'many people-
entering Rocky Moun-
tain National Park/,Tony
Bieltt was searching for
information about an
elderly, man who lives
alone in nearby Glen Ha-
yen, where cabins arid
boulders washed down a
swollen river.
"The problem is no one
knows who has been res-
cued," Bielat said.
Officials .were wading
through{ the rubble in
Glen Canyon on Monday,
checking every structure
. in rhe.owvn one by one.
Precise' accounting
of the missing remains'
elusive, with state and
county agencies some-
.times reporting conflict-
ing totals. Colorado of-
ficials listed 1,253 people
missing, statewide at one
point Monday and then
updated it to just658 later
in the afternoon.


Most of the missing
were in Larimer and Boul-
-der counties, which lie
north of Denver and are
dotted with self-reli-
ant mountain hamlets
where privacy-conscious
residents live in remote
homes difficult to access
even in ideal conditions.
Boulder County has as-
signed 10 police detec-:
Stives to search' for the
missing. Officials, are
struggling to gauge how
many people might actu-
ally be in danger as they
field hundreds of calls
from relatives, friends, es-
tranged siblings and also
near-strangers.
Rescuers and shelter
workers are taking down
lists :of evacuees to feed
to county officials, and
people are, asked 'to call
in when they locate their
relatives. Federal officials
Monday repeatedly, im-
plored people affected by
the flooding to call and
reassure their loved ones.
In the funky mountain
town of Lyons,. stranded
residents were unsure
how to:. communicate
their status. Telephone

out as tloodwater rushed
inWednesday, and most
people's cellphones died'
long ago.
One man drove with
his young son past the
shuttered, shops on a
muddy and abandoned
Main Street searching for
guidance.
"D6 you need some-
thing?" shouted Glenn
Scott, who was walking

ers. It's become the town's
new greeting.

Lady Pirates struggle in Panama City tourney


S BYbUSTIN KENT
dkent@jcfloridan.com :,

The Sneads Lady Pirates have been total-
ly dominant for much of the early season,
but they suffered through their first major
adversity of the year over the weekend in
Panama City.
After suffering their first match loss of
the season Thursday night against Arnold,
the Lady Pirates went back to Panama City
on Saturday for a one-day tournament and
lost three out of four matches.


Sneads (1-4) opened with a two-set loss
to Maclay by scores of 25-17 and 25-20
before falling to Arnold again in two sets,
25-17 and 25-21, and WakuUlla 25-15 and
26-24.
The Lady Pirates then endedthe daywith'
an emphatic two-set win over FAMU by
scores of 25-8 and 25-8, though SHS coach
Sheila Roberts said that was small conso-
lation for an otherwise miserable day.
"We just didn't play well from the begin-
ning," she. said. "Our defense was terrible
and we were slow. I was disappointed, but


it's a wakeup call because it's early in the
season. We're pretty good at beating teams
that are not as strong as us, but we get
someone that matches up well with us and
there's some things we've got to change.
"We're going to focus on that this week,
adding a few more practice hours during
the week and changing some things up.
We just don't look like the same team we
looked like in the preseason and over the
summer."

State's backfield a new nickname. .
"Wild & Free" worked perfectly when it was a two-
man show featuring James, Wilder Jr. and Devpnta
Freemarr. B.ut junior Karlos Williams, a safety who
switched to running back after the season opener,
had a breakout performance in Saturday's 62-7 drub-
bing of Nevada and could be in the mix the rest. of the
year. .,
Williams ran eight times for 110 yards, including a
65-yard touchdown rtin on his first career carry.
"When I got out, there was nothing but green grass,"
Williams said. '
The Seminoles (2-0) had a lot of open spaces against
the Wolf Pack. They ran for 377 yards and had six dif-
ferent players score on the ground.
Williams' outing was thenmost impressive, though.
With. plenty of talent in the secondary and running
'back Mario Penders academically ineligible, coach
Jimbo Fisher asked Williams to move to the offensive
.side of the ball following a41-13 win at Pitt.'
For Williams, the swamp made sense.
He played in 12 games, mostly on special teams, as
a freshman and served as a backup safety and kick re-
turner last season. Although he was widely regarded
as one of the nation's top safeties coming out of Ridge
Community High School in Davenport, he had plenty
of experience with the bail in'his hands. :
* WU illiams ran 69 times for 564 yards and seven touch-
downs as a senior.
So he was a little rusty, but far from lost.
"I'm not tryingto say that I was rubbing a crystal ball,
but that guy is a talented cat," Fisher said. "He's very
dynamic with the ball. He's big, strong and explosive.
He's natural. When he gets in space, he can hit home
runs. ... Karlos will provide us with a very big piece of
the puzzle in my opinion as the year goes on."
: If so, FSU might need another catchy moniker for its
backfield trio. .
Williams and Freeman, (109 yards) became the first
FSU teammates to rush-for 100 yards, in the same
game since Chris Thompson (103)-and quarterback EJ
Manuel (102) did it against Clemson last season.
Wilderran six timesfor 45 yards and a score, still deal-
ing with a shoulder injury sustained in the opener. -
After watchingWilliams in practice, Wilder had high
expectations for his new backfield mate.
"If he gets a toss sweep and gets one little crease, I
told him he was a track star and he was going to be
gone," Wilder said. "He just'didit. That boy is fast.
"He has a nose for the end zone and he's desper-
ate to get there. I think I overheard somebody say his
yards per carry was like 13 or 14 yards per carry, and
that's pretty scary because he still doesn't know every-
thing yet."


Florida Driskel says confidence, knee fine


The Associated Press
GAINESVILLE. -Florida
quarterback' Jeff Driskel
'said, Monday his confi-
dence and left knee are just
fine.
It won't be known forsure
until the 19th-ranked Ga-
tors take the field for their
'Southeastern Conference
opener against Tennessee
(2-1)'on Saturday
Driskel has 10 turnovers
in the team's last three loss-
es, including, three costly
ones in a 21-16 setback at
Miami a little more than a
week ago. He threw two in-
terceptions in the red zone
receiver Trey Burton ran
the wrong route on one of
them and fumbled while
getting sacked.
Driskel ended consecu-
tive drives in the fourth
quarter with turnovers,
key plays in a tight game
against the Hurricanes.
His mistakes are still a
hot topic in Gainesville, es-
pecially since they are a re-
curring theme in Florida's
IJrecent losses.


'Asked whether his con-
fidence. has been .shaken,
Driskel's reply was a little
short on self-assurance.
"No, not really at all',"
Driskel said. "My coaches
.and my teammates have
full confidence in 'me,
and that's all that really
matters."
Coach Will Muschamp
and several players .ex-
pressed trust in Driskel,
but it's clear the Gators (1-
1) have plenty of offensive
issues with ball security
atop the list.
"No one's been able to
stop us when we haven't
had a turnover or a pen-
alty, so just worry about us
first and then taking care
of the other team second,"
Driskel said. "If we can
handle us, we'll be fine.
That's what we worked on
this week."
Driskel was limited dur-
ing the team's bye week
because of a sprained left
knee. He injured it in the
second quarter against
Miami when he got sand-
wiched high and low be-


tween defenders.
"It could have been a lot
worse, so that's the good
newvs," Driskel said. "It's
feeling a lot better' now and
I'll be ready to go."
Driskel completed 22 of
33 passes for a career-high
291 yards, with a touch-
down. But his mistakes --
,those three turnovers and
a high'throw to Quinton
Dunbar in the end zone
early have outweighed
any positives ...
"There were four or five
plays in the game he would
have liked to have back, but
he also made some really
nice throws," Muschamp
said. "He was very accurate
with the football. Without
two drops, you're 24 of 33
and feel, a little different
about it. If you take care of.
the ball in spme other situ-
ations. He knows that.
"We'll move forward and
learn from that., I think'
we've done that."
Maybe so, but this isn't
the first time Driskel has
had ball-security issues.
SHe threw two intercep-


tons and fumbled twice in
a 17-9 loss to Georgia last
October. He had two more
interceptions and a fumble
, in a 33-23 loss to Louisville
in the Sugar Bowl. He also
was sacked eight times in
those two games.
Driskel insisted he has
learned his lesson.
"First of all, don't try to
do. too much 'as a quar-
terback," he said. "Just go
with what you're coached
and don't try to do too
much and hold onto the
ball when you're running.
.. We've really got to work
on ball security and really
lock in, especially in the
red zone."
Florida's next opponent,
Tennessee, was gashed for
687 yards in a 59-14 loss at
second-ranked Oregon on
Saturday. Still, the Volun-
teers lead the conference.
in turnover margin (plus 6)
and red-zone defense.
Driskel played one of
his better games against
the Volunteers last year.
He completed 14 of 20
passes for 219 yards and


two touchdowns, and ran
eight times for 81 yards. He
didn't have a turnover.
"He's been elusive for
us," Vols defensive tackle
Daniel Hood said. "Last
year, I think we made ev-


ery quarterback play good
against us. We've just got to
do a good job containing
him, forcing him to make
throws and then getting af-
ter him when we knowit's a
pass down."

The Associated Press

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. -
Tennessee coach Butch
Jones says he's opening
up the Volunteers' quar-
terback competition.
Junior Justin Worleyjias
started each of Tennes-
see's first three games and
is atop the depth chart for
Saturday's game at No. 19
Florida, but Jones said
-Mnday that 'he" would.
start whichever quarter-
ba'ck performs the best in
practice. Tennessee's of-
fense struggled last week
in a 59-14 loss at-No. 2
Oregon that represented
the Vols' most lopsided
varsity defeat since 1910.
Worley is 35 of 57-for
372 yards with five touch-.
down passes and one in-
terception this' season.-
Redshirt freshman Na-
than Peteiman has gone
6 of 12 for 40 yards with
no touchdowns or in-
terfceptions., Tones didn't
rule out,the possibility of
starting Riley Ferguson or
Joshua Dobbs; two fresh-
men who haven't played
at all:'
"Just' like any posi-
tion in ourprogram, it's
open," Jones said. "What-
ever quarterback has the
best week of practice will.
be the starter for Tennes-
see when-we play Florida.
If that means a freshman
quarterback, that means
a freshman quarterback.
,We'll add more quarter-
backxun into bour package
this week. We just need to
find ways to generate big


explosive plays. If that's
Josh Dobbs running the
read option or Riley Fer-
guson, that's what. we'll
do." .
Jones wants his offense
to create, more "splash
plays" that generate big
chunks of yardage. Wor-
ley is averaging 10.6 yards
'per completion to rank
81st nationally in that
category. .:
Worley- also is the
least mobile of Tennes-
see's four, scholarship
quarterbacks.
"You have to earn your
spot :each and, every
week," Jones said. "We'll
see what the freshmen
can handle. Nate Peter-
man continues to prog-
ress along .He's an indi-
"vidual, at 6 a.m., he's the

"I feel like I played all

Officials from Wisconsin-ASU game reprimanded


The Associated Press

TEMPE, Ariz.' The
Pac-12 Conference has
reprimanded the officials
in Saturday night's game
between Wisconsin and
Arizona State for their ac-
tions in'the bizarre clos-
ing seconds.
The Pac-12 said the of-
iicials did not act with
'enough urgency or prop-
erly handle the end of
game situation when
Wisconsin quarterback
Joel Stave awkwardly took
- a knee and the clock ran
out on the Badgers in the
ensuing confusion.
"This ,vas an unusu-
al situation to end the
game,"'' Pac-12 Commis-
sioner Larry Scott said in
a statement on Monday.
'After a thorough review,
we have determined that
the officials fell short
of the high standard in
wh4ch. Pac-12 games
should be managed. We
will continue to work
with all our officials to
ensure this type of situa-
tion never occurs again."
The strange finish came
after Wisconsin drove to
Arizona State's 13-yard
line with i8 seconds left.
Trying to set the Badgers
up for a game-winning
field goal, Stave ran left
and tried to take a knee in
the middle of the field.
He clipped one of his
'offensive linemen while
.trying to go down and


plopped the ball onto the
yard marker before hop-
ping up quickly.
Players from both teams
were confused by the play
and the Sun Devils dove
on the ball, thinking it was
a fumble. Wisconsin lost
precious seconds 'while
the Arizona State players
were pulled off and a few
more when one of the of-
ficials held. the. Badgers
at the line of scrimmage
before allowing them to
snap the ball.'
Wisconsin tried to get a
play off so it could spike
the ball, bui ran out of
time. Arizona State won
32-30.
The Pac-12 said neither
the referee nor anyone
on his crew moved with
appropriate' urgency to
clearly communicate that
'the ball was to be spot-
ted so play could resume
promptly.
"It doesn't change the
outcome obviously arid;:
like I said earlier, I don't
expect that," Wisconsin
coach Gary Andersen
said. "But, it's account-
ability and at the end of
the day, that's what we
asked for."
One aspect of the play
that seemed to throw
everyone off was Stave
planting the ball on the
field and backing away.
One Wisconsin player
started to lunge toward
the ball after seeing it ly-
ing on the ground and


Arizona State's players
converged on it as their
coaches yelled from .the
sideline that it was a
fumble. .
Andersen said, Stave
did exactly what he was
-taught to do.
"The idea of him putting
the, ball on the ground
is to give,,the officials
the opportunity to get
the ball spotted quicker
and cleaner," Ander-
sen said. "The officials;
wherever they were, but
they weren't there to turn
around and get the ball.
That whole process f Joel
looking around behind
him, walking back there,
where am I going to.put
the ball, how am I going
to put the ball, that takes
time, that takes valuable
seconds and moments."
Arizona. State .coach
Todd Graham was initial-
ly fooled by Stave's quick
kneel-down, believing his
knee never hit the ground


- the reason he and his
staff were yelling at their
players to cpver the ball.
After watching the play
on film, Graham saw that
Stave's knee did hit the
ground and that the way
he went down seemed to
throw everyone off.'
"There's a human ele-
ment to this game," Gra-
ham said. "You win or
you lose. We won and let's
move onto the next deal.
Obviously, that was a very
unusual deal."
NCAA, President Mark
Emrimert was asked about
the final sequence, but
said the NCAA only gets
involved if there seems
to-be a systemic problem
and not just one blown
call.
SBut' even he was sur-
prised by the ending.
"I thought that was a
really, really weird end-
ing to the'game," he said
while in Milwaukee.
It certainly was.

Dear Annie: Last year, my husband and
I' attended my cousin's annual summer
barbeque. After we arrived, I looked for ,
a place to tie up our dog in the backyard
anrd noticed a few dead rats. They ap- '
peared to have been there for some time.
I made mention of this to my cousin's
husband, but he made no attempt to ,
remove them even though theywere ohly
a few steps away from the barbeque pit.,
, 1 tied my dog several. feet away from
the dead rats. Later, when we returned
home, our dog started scratching. This
continued for several days until we no-
ticed his fur was falling out. I believe he
contracted mange from the dead rats.
We've been invited to their "last nice
weather barbecue," but I am reluctant
to go. My husband says we should go re-
gardless, but I feel that if they don't care
to'get rid of the dead rats in their back-


Robert Orben is primarily a comedy writer, but
he has been a magician and was a speechwriter
for Gerald Ford. Orben said, "I always get to the
airport an hour early. That way, I can be one of the
first to know that the flight has-been delayed."
At the bridge table, you can sometimes delay
a key play, but much more oftemnyou should get
down to business immediately. How does that ap-,
ply to this deal? South is in four spades. West leads
the heart king, How should declarer proceed?
Over West's takeout double, North's redouble in-
dicatetl 10 points or more and denied four or more
spades. (With four or more spades, North would
have responded two no-trump, which should
be called Truscott, but is often known as Jordan
because he popularized the gadget in the United
States.)After this redouble, either North and South
buy the contract or an opponent plays in some-
thing doubled for penalties.
North's three-spade rebid indicated game-forc-
ing values with exactly three-card spade support.
South has four losers: two hearts and two dia-
monds. He has only nine winners: five spades, one
heart, one diamond and two clubs. But if declarer
can ruff a loser in the shorter trump hand, it will
generate an extra trump trick. Here, Southshould
ruff his third diamond on the board. And there is
no point in delaying. He takes the first trick and
plays two rounds of diamonds.
'Suppose West wins, cashes two hearts,
and shifts to a club. Declarer wins in his hand,
ruffs the third diamond high, draws trumps and
claims.

room is never clean wheawe visit. What
do you think?
--DISGUSTED IN THE MIDWEST

SDear Disgusted: We thinkyour cousin,.
and her husband are not particularly
meticulous about their cleaning arid
don't care if you notice. And while your
dog may have contracted mange from
something in their yard, there's no way
to be certain now. You can. contact the
health department in your city and
report the conditions (most municipali-
ties like to know if there is an increased
rat population). But that may not solve
your problem, which is whether or not
to attend another barbecue there. We say
give them one last chahce--but don't
bringyouf'dog.

*' THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning (18) throws a pass during the first half of Sunday's game against the New York
Giants in East Rutherford, N.J.


Manning, Broncos look unstoppable


." -;.The Asociated Press

.ENGL WOOD, Colo. Of all the
:ways Peyton Manning and the Den-
ver offense have dominated over the
First two games of the season, this
one probably says the most:
SHad they not scored at all in the
first half-of either'game, they would
still be tied with Green Bay for the
league lead in points.
SThe Broncos followed their open-
ming-night victory over the Super
Bowl champion Ravens with "an
'equally impressive victory over the
champs from the year before, the
NewYork Giants. They broke the 40-
point mark for the second straight
week a feat accomplished by this
franchise only once, in 1976, a year
before they made their first Super
Bowl.
Of their 90 points so far, 66 of them
have come in the second half.
S, Someone asked me about fire and
, brimstone speeches" at halftime,
coach John Fox said Monday. "That

Sof s'crinimmage, the 16th-year veteran
,, has become the first quarterback in
NFL history to star the season with
nine touchdown passes and no in-
S.terceptions. His 131.0 passer rating
leads the league and Denver ranks


third in total offense and first in scor-
ing, by 24 points over the Packers.
Manning also joined Brett Favre
and Dan Marino as only the third
quarterback to throw for 60,000
yards in his career a mere foot-
note by the end of Sunday's latest
blowout, given all the numbers he's
been putting up.
In all, there's quite a ,different feel-
ing around Broncos headquarters
this year than two games into last
season, when Mannming was still
finding his way around Denver and
the Brdncos had dropped.to 1-1 af-
ter the quarterback threw three in-
terceptions in the' first quarter in a
27-21 loss atAtianta..
That offense was still finding its
'rhythm.
This offense looks like it's been to-
gether-for years.
In addition to time spent together,
Manning has been afforded a few
more playmakers on offense f6r this
season.-.

But given how potent this offense is
so far, mistakes really stand out.
Against the Giants, Welker dropped

Jacksonville Jaguars running back Maurice Jones-Drew (32)
warms up before Sunday's game against the Oakland Raid-
ers in Oakland, Calif.
Jones-Drew tendon


strain a relief to Jaguars


The Associated Press,

FREMONT, Calif.-
Jacksonville running back
Maurice Jones-Drew has
a tendon strain in his left
foot, and the Jaguars hope
he won't miss any games.
Coach Gus Bradley said
Monday that Jones-Drew
will undergo an MRI and
may sit out practice this
week as ',a precaution.
But he's encouraged -that
Jones-Drew could be
ready to play Sunday in
Seattle ..
"We'll know more. on
Wedesday but by all
accounts it looks pretty
good," Bradley said. "I
know he felt good this'
morning so that's a posi-
tive sign. Good news for
us."
Jones-Drew was injured
in the second quarter,
of the Jaguars' 19-9 loss
to the Oakland Raiders.
He had run for'2 yards
on a, second-and-goal
play when Raiders safety
Charles Woodson made
a flying tackle after leap-
ing over two other play-
ers. Jones-Drew -limped
'off .the field after being hit
and did not return.
The 28-year-old run-
ning back, who missed 10
games with a foot injury
last season, had just 27
yards on 10 carries before
getting hurt. The 27 yards
are the third-fewest- of
Jones-Drew's career when
he has 10 carries or more.
Jones-Drew left the Jag-
uars locker room with-
out talking to reporters
following, the loss to the
Raiders.
After, speaking with the
:running back and team
trainers on Monday, Brad-
ley was upbeat but added
That even if Jones-Drew is
cleared the Jaguars may
hold him out of practice. .
"He could, depend-
ing on what we find out,"
Bradley said, "But we feel
like he's got a chance to be
back on Sunday."
The news isn't as promis-
ing for quarterback Blaine
Gabbert, who cut open
the back of his throw-
ing hand on a defender's


helmet during-the season
opener against Kansas
City on Sept. 8. Gabbert.
had, some 'of the stitches
removed, but is likely to'
miss a second straight
game..
"He'll do'"some running
and things like that, but
as of right now we don't
anticipate we'll have him
on Sunday."
Chad Hlenne passed for
241 yards and one touch-
down in his first start
since Gabbert went out,
but the Jaguars continued
to struggle to score. .,-
One week after the of-
fense was shut out in a
28-2 'loss toi mte Chiefs,.
Jacksonville was held to a
field goal through the first
three quarters against
Oakland until Hehnne's 13-
yard pass to Clay Harbor
with 2:53 remaining.
Part of the Jaguars.strug-
gles were" self-inflicted.
Henne was sacked five'
times,- and Jacksonville
had 10 penalties for 70
yards compared to justfive
penalties for Oakland.
"The penalties were the
.big issue for us," Bradley
said. "We had two that
occurred on fourth down
that extended drives. The
penalties that we. had
'contributed to 13 points.
We need to clean those-'
things up."
The Jaguars are staying
in Northern, California
ana practicing at San Jose
State with two straight
games on the West Coast.:
Notes: TE Marcedes
SLewis, who has not played
this season because of a
calf injury, will- attempt
to run sprints on Tuesday.
If all goes well, he could
be activated for Sunday's
game in Seattle.... TheJag-
uars claimed cornerback
Jamell Fleming, a third-
round pick. in 2012, off
waivers from.the Arizona
Cardinals and signed de-
fensive end Jacques Mc-
Clendon. To make room,
Jacksonville waived de-
fensive back Marcus Bur-
ley and wide receiver Jer-
emy Ebert. The team also
signed Chris McCoyto the
practice squad.

there and tried their
best.",
SDespite losses, the
coach said that she be-
lieves her players will
benefit from the week-
end matches, though the
team has a lot of ground
to make up to get back to
.500.
"I think it helped them
out a lot," Jurgonski said.
J"We got the girls the


chance to go out and
play games and then
fix some things without
having to wait until the
next day to do it. It also
helped them bond as a
team to be able' to stay
together the whole day.
I hope that helped them
out. I still think we have
some things we need to
work on as a team and we
still have time to do that.
It's still pretty early in the
season." '
The Lady Hornets were
scheduled to host the


Chipley Lady Tigers on Tuesdaynight and ending
Monday before taking on the week at home against
county foe GraceVille on Bethlehem on Thursday.
