An excavator leaves piles of debris behind it as it moves down a section of hotel rooms at Malloy's Motel, Friday in Marianna. The old
Malloy's Motel and.its attached Plantation House Restaurant are believed to have been established in the late 1930s. They were demolished
Friday as the current owner elected to have the property cleared. : '




Demolition begins

Mall y's was one of Marianna's firstmotels

BY DEBORAH BUCKHALTER
dbuckhalter@jcfloridan.com


The old Malloy's Motel was demol-,
ished last Friday by the proper's new
owner, but its memory lives on.,in the
lives of the peopledit touched.
JoAnn Malloy married a son of its
tIonjders, Dalls ind J.aigiiei tet MalJoy.,
She is one of the few people who know
why her in-laws started the business.
Her husband, Wayne, ,now deceased,
knew it by heart and it was spoken of in
the family often.
. As a yourigmother, Marguerite Malloy
worked at Daffin's department store and
the family lived not far away. She could
walk to and from 'work and would go
home at lunch each day to spend time
with. her firstborn child, Dallas Neville
Malloy, named after his father and ma-
ternal grandfather.
She would cry all the. way back to
work, JoAnn Malloy said, because she
had to leave her son back home for the.
afternoon.

It was a dilemma of motherhood that drove
Marguerite Malloy to convince husband
Dallas Malloy to start their own lodgings
business.
Her husband managed a gas sta-
tion not far from home. Behind the gas
station, there was a modest little util-
ity shed. In 1932, Marguerite talked her
husband into fixing that up as a place
for, out-of-towners to stay when they

I MARIANNA -With the start

On Wednesday, Sept. 18, the

Rate. With no citizens present to
comment on the issues, com-
missioners .Rico Williams, John
Roberts, Paul A. Donofro Jr. anid
Travis Ephriam voted 4-0 (Com-
missioner Allen Ward II was
absent) to approve two resolu-
tions, one adopting the city's
more than $33 million budget,
the other adopting the millage
rate of 2.8164, the same rate
used last year.. ,


The city's fiscal year begins
Oct. 1, which also marks the
start of raises for city employ-
ees. Eligible workers will soon
see ;a 1 percent bump in pay,
and those having satisfactory
performance reviews will earn
even more: 2 percent for those
making less than $40,000 a year,
1 percent for those making
more than $40,000.
Various departments have


new equipment in their future
now that the budget's been
finalized.-.
The city police department
has software on the way, plus
a server to run it and a variety
of gear is headed to the fire
department. Public Works is

tor and mower. And another

LOCAL & STATE






JACKSON COUNTY FLORIDAN* 'w'.,'v iciloridan corn


Florida Governor


makes changes to


Common Core plan


S The Associated Press .

'. TAULLAHASSEE- Florida
Gov. Rick Scott caught in
the debate over the future
of Florida's public schools
, is trying to respond to
critics of new education
standards slated to go into
effect next year.
instead of rejecting or
wholly endorsing the stan-
dards as former Gov. Jeb
Bush has Scott on Mon-
day called for public hear-
ings and possible changes
to the Common Core State
Standards.
The Republican gover-
nor also said the state will
pull out of a national test
for school children to see
if they are reaching stan-
dards in certain subjects.
Scott, in an executive or-
der and letters to top state
education officials, said
he remains in favor of the
"highest academic stan-
dards," but wants to make
sure there isn't any "federal
intrusion" into education
policy.
That has been a constant
refrain of Common Core
Critics, many of whom are
Republican Party activists.
Common Core supporters
say that is a mischaracter-
ization of how the stan-
dards were developed and
will be used.
"What Floridians need
to know is not our leaders
are 'for Common Core' or
'against Common Core,'"
Scont wrote in a letter to
State Board of Education
Chairman Gary Chartrand.
He added that as gover-
nor, "I support Florida's
high academic standards
and strongly reject over-
reach into those standards
and other areas of our edu-
cation system by the fed-
eral government."
The Republican governor
also on MNlonday wrote U.S.
Department of Education
Secretary Ame Duncan
and told him that Florida
would pull out of the na-
tional testing consortium
developing high-stakes
tests that would measure
the new standards.
Scott called on Educa-
tion Commissioner Pam
Stewart and the State
Board of Education to in-
stead issue j bid to deter-
mine what tests should be
used to replace the current
test known as the Florida
Comprehensive Assess-
ment Test. The widely-
used FCAT is not aligned
to the new Common Core
standards and must be
replaced by the 2014-15
school year.
Scott is taking these
steps amid a growing rift in
his own parry about edu-
cation policy and it's riot
clear if his stance will end
the divide.
His moves also come
just one day after former
Gov. Charlie Crist a
likely challenger to Scott
as a Democrat- wrote
a critical opinion piece
in the Tampa Bay Times
about Scott's handling


of education ahd said he
was capitulating to tea
party members on the
standards.
"This is a nonsensical
reason to reject them,"
Crist wrote. "Scott needs
to stand with Florida stu-
dents and no one else. This
is nor a time for rank parti-
sanship."
Legislative leaders said
Monday they were gener-
ally supportive of Scott's
actions. But a more cau-
tious stance came from
education groups that had
supported Common Core.
Patricia Levesque, execu-
tive director of the Foun-
dation for Florida's Future,
praised the standards and
said they were challenging
children.
Levesque, whose organi-
zation was started by Bush,
called on state officials to
"move quickly and careful-
ly" on finding a new test.
Education Commissioner
Pam Stewart, on a confer-
ence call with reporters,
insisted that the state had
until March to make a de-
cision. But Levesque said
"decisions must be made
soon.
Sally Bradshaw, a for-
mer chief of staff for Bush
and current state board
member, said she had no
problem hearing from
the public. But she added
that no one has presented
standards that are more
demanding than Common
Core.
"I would hope the board
would stay the course on
Common Core standards
so that we can continue to
set a high bar while ensur-
ing students excel at a high
level," Bradshaw wrote in
an email.
But Scott's decision to
revisit the standards drew
praise from opponents
seeking to stall and ulti-
mately displace the new-
standards.
"I am encouraged that he
is starting to look and listen
to the citizens of Florida,
specifically the parents,"
said Randy Osborne, who
works with the group Flor-
ida Parents Against Com-
mon Core.
Scott initially backed
Common Core stan-
dards, which set uniform
benchmarks for reading,
writing and math. But
in recent weeks he re-
fused to come out strong-
ly in favor of Florida's
transition to the new stan-
dards, which have been
adopted by 45 states and
the District of Colum-
bia, as opposition has
mounted among local Re-
publican Party organiza-
tions.
The standards are a result
of an initiative sponsored
by the National Governors
Association and the Coun-
cil of Chief State School
Officers. Opponents see
them as the nationaliza-
tion of education policy
and standards, something
they say should be left to
the states.

Va, man misidentified as DC shooter knew 1 victim


The Associated Press

McLEAN, Va. -A week
ago, Rollie Chance was
working the phones, wor-
ried that some of his
friends at the Washington
Navy Yard may have been
killed in a mass shooting
*there..
in the middle of that,
he received a call that he
thought was a prank: a
news organization telling
Shim that he had been iden-
tified as the shooter.
Chance's name was re-
ported Sept. 16 by two
network news organiza-
tions as the shooter in an
apparent mix-up involving
his long-discarded Navy
Yard identification badge.
NBC reporters tweeted
Chance's name as' the
shooter, while CBS used
Chance's name in tweets
and in a radio broadcast.
Both networks retracted
their reports within min-
utes of misidentifying him
as the shooter.

crowd out archived ver-
sions of stories on the In-
ternet that misidentifyhim
as the Navy Yard shooter.
He also says he wants to
ensure that others don't go
through what he did.
"It was a Very emotional-
ly draining week," Chance
said Monday in a phone
interview.
On the day of the shoot-
ing, Chance was also deal-
ing with the shootings on
a -personal level. He had

person, concerned that issued a similar statement:
bringing the victim's name '"We reported what We
into the public eye could learned from law enforce-


ment sources and it was
corrected within minutes."
The first call he received
on the day of the shoot-
ings was from ABC, asking
if he knew Rollie Chance
had been identified as
the Navy' Yard shooter.
Chance thought it was a
bad joke. Still, he holds no
ill will toward ABC or
other .news, agencies that
called trying to get the
story straight and that
withheld his -name from
publication.
"They verified before
they vilified," Chance said.
He first learned for cer-
tain that news outlets
had identified him as the'
shooter from FBI agents,
who visited his. home that
day. They were trying to
figure out why Chanc6's
badge was found at the
scene.
Chance said he still has
no idea how his badge
got mixed up in the case.
He retired in October
from his civilian Navy job
and turned in his badge
as a matter of routine.
He said multiple people,
including his boss, were
there when he did so. He
didn't give( the badge a


second thought between
then, and the day of the
shootings.
He said the FBI and other
agencies that came to his
home a week ago conclud-
ed relatively quickly that
he had no involvement in
what occurred.
Still, "that day was pretty
emotional. You're trying
to alleviate any doubt in
anyone's mind," he said.
His family received con-
dolence flowers that day
fr6m'people who heard the
news and thought Chance
was dead.
Chance declined to com-
mept on potential legal ac-
tion against NBCand CBS.
His lawyer, Mark Cum-
mings, said Chance has
asked him, first to "con-
tact NBC and CBS and
see if we can begin dis-
cussions toward a settle-
ment," one that would in
part enlist the networks'
help in minimizing the
fact that Internet searches
produce results linking.

Congress -is needed. But
if lawmakers don't like a
regulation, they can pass
a resolution to' block it.
Senate Republican Leader
Mitch McConnell, whose
state of Kentucky 'is a ma-
jor coal producer, says he'll
do just that.
The Congressional Re-
view Act provides for expe-
dited Senate consideration
with a. simple majority
vote. And the Republican-
controlled House would
have little difficulty pass-
ing it. n i
Still, it's incredibly'tough
to do; Since the act was es-
tablished in 1996, it's only
.been used successfully
once.
, Even if Republicans
could muscle the resolu-
tion through both cham-
bers, it's. nearly impos-
sible they could override
Obama's certain veto. '


Lawmakers could use
amendments to other bills
to undercut the regulation,
or try- to starve the EPA
of funds. But Democrats
'who control the Senate
would work to block those
moves.
LEGAL
The Supreme Court has
already ruled the EPA
has authority, under the
Clean Air Act, to regulate
greenhouse gases. But
that doesn't mean the EPA
won't get sued.
"The chances for le-
gal action are 100, per-
cent," said Jeffrey Holm-
stead, the EPA'S'former air
and radiation chief
under President George W.
Bush.
A large number of coal-
friendly states are expect-
ed to join trade groups in
suing. The American Co-
alition for Clean Coal Elec-


tricity, which represents
the coal industry, alluded
to legal action when it ac-
cused Obama of effectively
banning new coal plants.
"It's almost certain the
courts will have to settle
this issue," said ACCCE
President Mike Duncan.
SOpponents say the rule's
key vulnerability is a Clean "
Air Act provision requiring
the EPA standard to reflect
the. best emissions reduc-
tion technology that's
been "adequately demon-
strated." The EPA says four
plants under development
plan to deploy the technol-
ogy. Critics say that's hard-
lyproof it's commercially
available or economically
viable.
Still, lawsuits won't be
immediate. Opponents
must wait until the EPA fi-
nalizes the rule before they
can sue a process that
will take months.

to end mall siege


The Associated Press

NAIROBI, Kenya Kenyan
security forces battled al-Qaida-
linked terrorists in. an upscale
mall for a third day Monday in
what they said was a final push
to rescue the last few hostages
in a siege that has leftat least 62
people dead.
While the. government an-.
nounced .Sunday that "most"
hostages had been released, a
security expert with contacts
inside the mall said at least 10
were still being held by a band of
attackers, described as "a multi-
national collection from all over
the world."
The expert, who insisted on an-
onymity to talk freely about the
Situation, said many hostages
had been freed or escaped in the
previous 24-36 hours, .including
Some who were in hiding.
However, there were at least 30
hostages when the assault by al-
Shabab militants began tatur-
day, he said, and "it'% clear" that
Kenyan security officials "haven't
cleared the building fully."
Flames and dark plumes, of
smoke rose Monday above the
Westgate shopping complex for
More than anhourafterfourlarge
explosions rocked'the surround-
ing neighborhood. The smoke
was pouring through a skylight
inside the mall's main 'depart-
ment and grocery store, where
mattresses and other flammable
goodsappeared to haye been set
-on fire' a person with knowledge
of the rescue operation told The
Associated Press.


* .THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
Kenya Army personnel walk outside the mall as a plume of black smoke
billows over the Westgate Mall in Nairobi, Kenya, on Monday. Multiple large
blasts rocked the mall where a hostage siege is in its third day.


The explosions were followed
by volleys of gunfire as police
helicopters and a military jet cir-
cled overhead, giving the neigh-
borhood the feel of.a war.zone.
By evening, Kenyan security of-
ficials claimed the upper hand.
"Taken control of all the floors.


We're not here to: feed the attack-
ers with pastries but to finish and
punish them," Police Inspector
General David Kimaiyo said on
Twitter. .
Kenya's Interior 'Minister Jo-
seph Ole Lenku said the evacu-
ation of hostages had gone "very,


very well" and that Kenyan offi-
cials were "very certain" that few,
if any hostages were left in the
building.
But with the mall cordoned off
and under heavy security it was
not possible to independently
verify the assertions. Similar
claims of a quick resolution were
made by, Kenyan officials on
Sunday and the siege continued.
Authorities have also not provid-
ed any details on how many hos-
tages were freed or how many
still remain captive.
Three attackers were killed in
the fighting Monday, Kenyan
authorities said, and more than
10 suspects arrested. Eleven Ke-
nyan soldiers were wounded in
the running gun battles. .
Somalia's al'-Qaida-linked rebel
group, al-Shabab, Which claimed
responsibility for the attack, said
the hostage-takers were well-
armed and ready.to take on the,
Kenyan forces.
An al-Shabab spokesman,
Sheik Ali Mohamud Rage, said
in an audio file posted on a mili-
tant website that the attackers
had been ordered to "take puni-.
tive action against the hostages".'
if force was used to try to rescue
them.
The attackers have lots of am-
munition, the militant group
said in a Twitter feed,, adding
that Kenya's government would
be responsible for any. loss of
hostages'lives.
A Western security official in
Nairobi who insisted on not be-
ing named to share information
about the rescue operation said


the only reason the siege hadn't
yet ended would be because
hostages were still inside.
Westgate mall, a vast complex
with multiple banks that have
secure vaults and bulletproof
glass partitions, as well as a ca-
sino, is difficult to take, the of-
ficial said. "They are not made
for storming," he said of .the
labyrinth of shops, restaurants
and offices. "They're made to be
unstormable."
At least 62 people were killed
in the assault Saturday by some
12 to 15 al-Shabab militants
wielding grenades and firing on
civilians inside the mall, which
includes, shops for such retail
giants as Nike, Adidas and Bose
and is popular with foreigners
and wealthy Kenyans.
The militants specifically tar-
geted non-Muslims, and at least
18 foreigners were among the

PESHAWAR,. Pakistan
Pakistani Christians ral-
'lied Monday to denounce
the deadliest attack ever
in this country against the
religious minority as the
death toll from the church
bombings the day before
climbed to 85,
Two suicide bombers
blew themselves up amid
hundreds of worshippers
outside *the historic All
Saints Church in the north-
western city of Peshawar
on Sunday. '
'A wing of the Pakistani
Taliban claimed respon-
sibility for the bombings,
saying they would contin-
ue to target non-Muslims
until the U.S. stops drone
attacks in Pakistan.
The bombings raised
new questions about the
Pakistani government's
push to strike a peace deal
with the militants to end
a decade-long insurgency
that has killed thousands.
"What dialogue are we.
talking about? Peace with
those who are killing in-
nocent people," 'asked the
head of the All Pakistan
Minorities Alliance, Paul.
Bhatti, whose .brother,.'
a federal minister, was
gunned down by an Islam-
ic extremist in 2011.
The death toll reached 85,
after seven more of those
wounded in Peshawar died
overnight, according to the
commissioner of Pesha-
war, SahibzadaAnees.
Protesters blocked roads
around the country, burn-
ing tires on one of the main
roads into the capital, Is-
lamabad, as they demand-
ed government protection.
"Our people have been
killed ... Nobody seems to
bother about us. No one
_ apprehended the killers,"


said Aqeel Masih, qne of
the protesters.
Clashes broke out be-
tween Christian protest-
ers and Muslims Monday,
leaving one person dead,
in the southern port city
Sof Karachi, according to
'Police Chief Shahid Hayat.'
He said police fired tear gas
and guns in the air tq try to
disperse the crowd.
Missionary schools
around the country were
closed for three'days, said
Christian leader Nasir Gill.
Churches and .other
places important to the
Christian community, in
-'Peshawar have been given
extra security, said police
official Noor Khan. ':
Many churches, as well
,as mosques and other reli-
gious institutions, already
receive some type of police
protection although many
Christians say that is too
little. A police officer sta-
tioned at the church where
the suicide bombers at-
tacked was killed.
Christians are a minority'
in Pakistan, where roughly
96 percent of its 180 million
people is Muslim. The rest
belong to other religions.
Christians have been at-
tacked by Sunni Muslim
militants, who see them as
enemies of Islam.
Christians face discrimi-
nation as well, finding it
difficult to get access to
education or better jobs,
often relegated to menial
labor jobs.'
The U.S. State Depart-
ment condemned the
bombing, and said the
United States "remains
concerned about continu-
ing sectarian violence in
Pakistan that has brought
heartache to Sunnis, Shia,
Christians and members of
other communities across
the country."

"The offensive line has picked

"We've got Werlean (Pollock),

If we do that, then we'll be fine

No. 6 LSU unsettled by lapse as Georgia looms
The Associated Press


BATON ROUGE, La. By the time Zach
Mettenberger and the LSU 'Tigers had
sealed up their latest victory over Auburn
in their Southeastern Conference opener,
they were too disappointed over their sec-
ond-half slippage to celebrate their early
dominance.
"Guys just didn't keep their heads in the
game," Mettenberger .said following Satur-

The Associated Press

GRAPEVINE, Texas -
President Mark Emmert
said Monday he expects "a
lot of change" for the gov-
ernance structure of Divi-
sion I sports over the next
year.
"I've said publicly on
a number of occasions
the only thing everybody
agrees on with Division
I governance is that it
doesn't work," Emmert
said during his opening
remarks at a meeting of
more than 100 Division I
faculty athletics represen-
tatives. He later said NCAA
directors are looking at the
t,


next six to eight months in
particular.
"I think the board antici-
pates a lot of change," he
said. "They're going into
their October and January
meetings expecting to look
at a whole different gover-
nance model for Division
I. So it will be significantly
different."
The NCAA's annual con-
vention is in January. The
board hopes to adopt
proposals at its meeting
next April, and then have
a special meeting for the
full membership next
summer.
The discussion focused
on transparency and the


public perception of the
NCAA. '
Emmert has received
sharp criticism for months,
for everything from the-
unprecedented sanctions
handed to Penn State for
the Jerry Sandusky child
sex-abuse scandal to the
botched investigation of
alleged misconduct in
University of Miami ath-
letics. He, and the NCAA in
general, have been singled
out by conference com-
missioners, professional
athletes and even current
college football players.
Houston Texans run-
ning back Arian Foster,
who says in an upcoming


documentary he accepted
money while at Tennessee,
recently called the NCAA a
bully. Some college play-
ers wore patches Satur-
day with the letters APU,
standing for All Players
United, to call for NCAA
reform.
Additionally, SEC Com-
missioner Mike Slive sug-
gested last week that the
NCAA's rules on govern-
ing agents are part of the
problem amid reports of
possible problems at Ala-
bama and Tennessee.
"I haven't talked to Mike
about it, so I can't speak
for him," Emmert said
Monday.

No. 1 Alabama finding variety of ways to score


The Associated Press

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. Ala-
bama's special teams and de-
fense are providing a pretty
nice bailout whenever the of-
fense isn't racking up points.
The top-ranked Crimson Tide
has scored just about every
which way this season re-
turning a punt, a kick, a blocked
punt and.two interceptions for
touchdowns.
That knack helped Alabama
(3-0) beatNo. l0TexasA&M and
create more lopsided scores
against Virginia Tech and Colo-
rado State, games when the .of-
fense stalled at times.
The Tide managed its fifth
non-offensive touchdown
when Kenyan Drake smothered
a Colorado State punt Saturday
night and Dillon Lee scooped
and scored,from 15 yards out
with Alabama leading just 7-
0 early in the. second quarter.
Two fourth-quarter touch-
downs helped Bama ease home
with a 31-6 win in an otherwise
* lackluster performance.
"We always want to make big
plays on special teams," Tide
linebacker C.J. ,Mosley said.
"That was a big momentum
changer. It put points on the
board. And we went back out

ning back Dee Hart (1) during the first half of Saturday's game against Color:


on defense and executed. At
the end of the day, we want our
special teams to make plays
and put points on the board."
It has definitely made a dif-
ference. Alabama's offense put
up big numbers against Texas
A&M but had more modest
success in the other two games,
including 338 yards against
Colorado State.
SAlabama is last in the South-


eastern Conference in rush-
ing, averaging 132.0 yards per
game, and 13th in total offense
(370.7).
Next up for the Tide is No. 21
Mississippi.
"'We obviously have a diffi-
cult game coming up, and we
need to get it right," Tide coach
Nick Saban said after the game.
"We didn't do a very good job
on third down. We couldn't run


33 in Saban's six-plus seasons.
Against Colorado State, Ala-
bama's offense got limited ac-
tion from tailback T.J. Yeldon
and was without top receiver
Amari Cooper and guard An-
thony Steen, who were held out
to heal up for the Rebels. The
running game never go t going.d
That made the play by Drake
and Lee a big pick-me-up.
"It's fantastic. It's a momen-
tum booster, the offense gets
a momentum booster," said
safety Landon Collins, who has
been a top player bn Alabhama's
coverage teams. "They, just
know that they can' push tie

No. 10 Texas A&M prepares,

for Arkansas toad trip

The Associated Press

COLLEGE STATION, Texas -After playing four straight
home games to open the season, No. 10 Texas A&Mgets
back to SEC play this week with a trip to Arkansas.
The Aggies hope to continue their road dominance
from last season when they were a perfect 7-0 away from
College Station.
Texas A&M's road success last season was highlighted
by its 29-24 win at top-ranked Alabama.
The Aggies beatArkansas 58-10 last season in their first
meeting as Southeastern Conference rivals after losing
their previous three against the Razorbacks.
Coach Kevin Sumlin said there's no secret to his team
playing well on the road. The Aggies keep things simple.
"It's what we do. We don't change our routine much,"
Sumlin said. "Same routine, we use at home we use on
the road. Just like a lot of different things, you to try to
keep it all the same."
He tries to encourage his team to use the crowds on
the road to its advantage.
'You try to create own energy," Sunmlin said. "As .a com-
petitor, the same type of enthusiasm and enjoyment you
get from the home crowd from an electricity standpoint,
you have to be able to utilize on road and I think our
team does a good job ofthat."
The Aggies got an easy 42-13 win over SMU on Satur-
day to rebound from last week's 49-42 loss to No. 1 Ala-
bama. The defense had its best game of the season after
struggling through the first three games while dealing,
with suspensions.
Texas A&M moved top cornerback Deshazor Everett to
safety against the Mustangs and defensive coordinator
Mark Snyder thinks the move helped improve his de-
fense overall. Everett returned a fumble for a touchdown
on Saturday. .
"The great thing about Deshazor is this; whether he's
at corner or safety, he's an eraser, a great football player
and I appreciate him for that," Snyder said.
A&M's first-team defense held SMU to a pair of field
goals before the. Mustangs added a touchdown late.
against the backups. They hope the solid performance
will build confidence as they head back into conference
play.

she did all of that. That
was very impressive to

For herd part, Brelove
said she knows there is
still much work left to do
before she gets to college
and is able to make an
impact.
"I have to keep improv-
ing my work habits and


just-work hard on and off
the court," she said. "I just
need to get into the habits
of what (college players)
do, getting up. early and
doing a little harder work-
outs. I have to get a little
more aggressive and push
myself past my limits to
go above and beyond."
Roberts said he has no

and surprise a great many
people with just how big
of an impact she can have

College football players
with show of solidarity
The Associated Press
Some 'football players
from Georgia, Georgia
Tech and Northwestern
had the letters APU All
Players United writ-
ten on their gear during
Saturday's games as a
show of solidarity that or-
ganizers hope will lead to
changes in the NCAA.
National College Players
Association, an advocacy
group for college athletes,
organized All Players
United and launched the
campaign Saturday with
an announcement, on its
web site.
Georgia Tech quarter-
back Vad Lee had APU
written on his wrist tape,
as did several other Yel-
low Jackets during their
28-20 home win against
North Carolina that was
televised on SPN.
Georgia Tech defensive
end Jeremiah Attaochu
also had APU written
on his wrists and said
he heard about the plan
from a' teammate before
the game.
"It was briefly explained
to me before the game,"
Attaochu said. "It's a cam-
paign for NCAA reform."
ESPN reported that
Northwestern quarter-
back Kain Colter also had
APU written on his wrist
tape, and some Georgia
offensive linemen had it
written on their gear.
INCPA, founded by for-
mer UCLA football player
Ramogi Huma, has. been
pushing for better health
care of college athletes,
more scholarship money,
and to lift NCAA restric-
tions on legitimate -em-
ployment and the play-
ers' ability to directly
benefit from commercial
opportunities.
The NCPA says the
goals of the All Players
United campaign are:
* Demonstrate unity
among college athletes
and fans from different
campuses seeking NCAA
reform.,
S- Show support for the
players who joined con-


radar because she's from
a'small place like Malone,
but when people get the
opportunity to see her
at the next level, they'll
say, 'Where did this girl
come from,'" he said. "A
lot of other schools that
were recruiting her were
upset (when she com-
mitted to VCU) because
they saw that under-the-
radar potential in her. I
think she's going to do a
great job. She has a lot of
opportunities in front of
her."

"As a higher education

Public and Media Rela-

in: a statement Saturday
night. "Student-athletes

Dear Annie: My fiance's mother

sons. We see her infrequentlyd, but still,
my fiance loses his patience with her
quicklyv.
SAtfirstlIwasOK with her, but now she
annoys me. as well. She brags about
things, pleads to get herway, plans visits
without checking with us, is sensitive to
being told no or to anything she per-,I
ceives as criticism, and is very demand-
ing: She also recently pulled a child-
ish trick. When my fiance told her no
.repeatedly, she simply called me to plead
her case, knowing I am uncomfortable
saying no.
She is in herlate'60s and continues to
blame her actions on a rocky childhood.
My mother says to just be polite to her;
which I try hard to do. Butnowthat she
is in my home for week, conversa-
, tions with her are impossible, and I feel I
need to walk .away. She has a psychiatric
disorder, although I am not sure of the -
diagnosis. My fiance's grandmother indi-
cates it is schizophrenia, so I don't want
Sto push her too far.


At the bridge table,
*one wishes that all
wisdom isn't summed up
in two words -play and
hope. Yes, you will often
be hoping for the best,
but ideally you find a 100
percent line of play or
defense. '
In yesterday's deal, de-
clarer had two chances to
make his contract. Today's
is similar. South is in six
hearts. West leads the club
queen. What are declarer's
two chances? How should
he play to combine them?
North's two-no-trump
response was the Jacoby'

ing at least four-card

going values. South's
three-spade rebid indicat-
ed a singleton (or void)

We are getting married soon at a,

for her and my fiance's father to travel to
. see us get married. I am fine with this,-
' but my fiance is upset that his parents do
not care enough to make it work. They:
can' afford the airline tickets. .
. I think it is my fiance's place to explain'
his hurt feelings to them. Do I continue
to be polite about it? I am currently

Dear Z.: Yes, please continue to be
polite. We recognize that his mother's, be-
'havior is difficult, but you see'her infre-

can for your fiance's sake. He obviously
cares a great deal about his parents. He
Should tell them how important it is to
him that they attend the wedding, but he
cannot control their response. We hope
they wil make the effort to be there, and
we hope you will be supportive without
commiserating too much.

South can see two
possible losers: one
diamond and one club.
He has only 11 top tricks:
one spade, six hearts,

probably that the diamond

South takes the first
trick, draws trumps,
and plays two more
rounds of clubs, Here,
they divide evenly and

that he will discard one of

last club. But if the clubs
were not 3-3, the diamond
finesse would still be
available.

Jaguars showing little progress through 3 games


The Associated Press'

JACKSONVILLE Nobody'
thought the Jacksonville Jag-.
uars were going to be good this
season.
Nobody thought they would be
this bad, either.
The Jaguars (0-3) have been
beaten soundly in each of. their
Three games, generating little
offense and facing double-digit
deficits long before the final
whistle.
SThe latest debacle was a 45-17
loss at Seattle on Sunday, a game-
in which Jacksonville trailed
,24-0 at the ,break and 31-0 in
the, third quarter. The reality is.
the, Seahawks are a playoff con-
tender, and the Jaguars are in the
early stages of a complete rebuild
,-under general manager Dave,

They rank last. in' the league

Bradley said Monday "But I don't

Jack Del Rio (2003) also did it.

Durn earns praise
in defeat
There. weren't many
bright spots for the Pirates
in the loss to Qottondale,
though the play of sopho-
more 'running back Ant-
wan Durn was first amrnong
them by a wide margin.
Durn had a big night on


the ground, rushing -for
168 yards artd three touch-
downs and accounting for
70 percent of the tearins'to-
tal.offense. .
"Antwanis a workhorse,"
Thomas said of the speedy
sophomore. "He works
harder than everybody
else in the weight room
and works as hard as he
can in practice every day.
Antwan is. so consistent,
therefore he consistently
plays good. I've got to get
more of my guys like that.",
In three games,, Durn
has rushed for 362 yards'
and, five touchdowns on
10.3 yards per carry, while
also scoring twice on punt
returns.
