Bell Peals for Constitution


Special to the Floridan

Those within the sound
of St. Luke's bell may have
wondered why it was

Saturday, Sept. 21. Was
there a funeral at St. Luke's
Episcopal Church or
maybe a wedding? Neither
was the case. Parishio-
ner Harry Dunaway was
ringfig the historic bell to
honor the 226th anni-
versary of the drafting of
the U.S. Constitution and
to end the annual DAR/
CA.R./SAR luncheon. The
Constitution of the United
States of America, the old-
est written constitution of
any national government
in the world, is honored by
"DAR Bells across Amer-
ica" during Constitution

Judge Bill Wright, this.
year's featured speaker,
gave a concise and inter-
esting look at this great
document and the way in
which it affects our daily
lives. Those in attendance

Our Opinion



Living history

In small towns and cities across the South stand
stone sentinels meant as reminders of the sacrifices
Sof those who fought in the U.S. Civil War. More
often than not, they're passed daffily by contemporary
residents and travelers who barely notice they're there
and likely have only a passing idea of what they stand
for.
Our offices in downtown Marianna overlook Confed-
erate Park, where at the west'end stands a tall obelisk in
memory of those who defended our town in a bloody
fight with Union soldiers on Sept. 27, 1864. '
; Friday marks the anniversary of that fight,' remem-
bered in Civil War history as the Battle of Marianna, and
the occasion will be marked with two public events. The
first, on Friday, or Marianna Day, will be a morning-
long educational presentation for children at Citizens
Lodge, featuring a "living history" presentation with live
actors in period dress, cannon demonstrations and a
program about the"cow cavalry." A memorial presenta-
tion at Riverside Cemetery at 5 p.m. will close the day's
events. On Saturday, programs will be held at Confeder-
ate Park and at St. Luke's Episcopal Church.
SWe encourage interested residents to take part in
.Marianna Day events to become informed about the
significant history thatihelped shape our area and the
people who took part in those events.

Who is a journalist and why does it matter?


S ATho is a journalist? That's
/\/ V not a question limited to
V college classes, like the
-one Steve teaches on media ethics
at George Washington University.
Congress is now grappling with
a definition as it debates a media
shield law that would protect re-
porters against "unwarranted intru-
sion" by federal prosecutors, in the
words of Sen. Chuck Schumer.
SThe bill passed the Senate
Judiciary Committee with bipar-
tisan support earlier this month
and could soon be headed to the
Senate floor. It sprang to life after,
a spate of intrusions by the Justice
Department last spring graphically
demonstrated how overzealouslaw
enforcement can threaten the vital-
'ity of independent journalism.
In one case, the department
subpoenaed the phone records .of
Associated Press personnel who
had broken a story about a failed
terrorist plot in Yemen. In another
case, a Fox reporter was branded a
possible "co-conspirator", in an es-
pionage investigation, an unprec-
edented attempt to criminalize the.
act of newsgathering.
Thelensuing outcry forced Presi-
dent Obama and Attorney Gen-
eral Eric Holder to revise Justice
Department guidelines and make
itharder for prosecutors, to procure
the testimony of journalists. But
only Congress, they said, could'.*
decide who should quaIify'forthose
enhanced protections.
Defining a journalist is not easy,
and the shooting at the NavyYard
here in Washington this week
showed why. Amateurs rushed to
help'with the coverage, monitoring
police scanners, taking photos and
videos, tweetinig and re-tweeting
information.
Some of their contributions were
very helpful, and crowdsourc-
ing is a growing part of the media
universe. Police pleaded for citizen
journalists to help fill in the back-


Cokie 8 Steven
Roberts


ground of the NavyyYard shooter,
Aaron Alexis. ,
But the amateurs also made a
lot of mistakes, and one of them '
was to take information directly
from police scanners and postit
on socialmiedia as established
fact. Mark'Brady, an information :
officer for Prince George's' County
in suburban Washington, D.C., told
AP that "People on Twitter take it
for granted that scannerr chatter)
is real and confirmed,". when it's
not. Relaying such data without
confirming it is "asking for trouble,"
he said...
Jim Farley, an executive at all-
news radiokstationWTOP, told the
Washington Post that experienced
journalists Wouldn't commit that
error. "Weve6always had a rule
here: A scanner doesn't give you
information; it tells you (whom) to
call," he said. "It's not a source."
Yes, professional journalists make
mistakes too. We've made plenty
ourselves. But there is a difference
'between an amateur and a profes-
sional: a difference in training,
standards, experience and purpose.
And that difference should be rec-
ognized in federal law.
A shield law that applies to
anyone with a laptop or cellphone
would be meaningless. It could also
be dangerous. One example: Every
good journalist takes national secu-
rity seriously, balancing the right of
the public to be informed against
its right to be safe.
The Washington Post did exactly


that after receiving leaks about
clandestine'surveillance operations
from Edward Snowden. It pub-
lished the story but withheld the.
, most sensitive details at the request
of the Obama administration.
Should Wikileaks, which shows
no such regard for security con- ,
cerns, enjoy the same protections
as the Post? What about Snowdeni
himself? If he sits in the Moscow
airport; writing a blog on his lap-
top, does that make him a journal-
ist worth' of legal protection?
Obviously not. The line has to
be drawn somewhere. And the
Senate committee did a good job:
It defines journalist as someone,,
who has had an "employment
relationship" with a media outlet
for at least one year out of the last
20, or three mondiths out of the last
five years. It also includes student
journalists, as well as freelancers
with a "substantial track record" of
performance. ',
The'lawrakers understand that-
the online landscape is.changing
rapidly, and not all journalists get
regular paychecks or even freelance
*assignments. So they drafted a pro-
vision that allows a federal judge to
include under the law anyone else
who is engaged in 'lawful and le-
gitimate newsgathering activities."
A federal shield law is needed.,
nowni more than ever: As Obama has
demonstrated, politicians have a
growing ability to communicate
directly with citizens over multiple
social media platforms, and avoid
the questioning and scrutiny of :
independent journalists."..I
Republicans should realize '
they have a vested interest here.
No White House, of either party,.
;should have the power to intimi-
date its journalistic critics. So .here's
away to get Republican votes for
the shield law: Rename it the "Hold
Obama's Feet to the Fire Act." .

While Republicans squabble, Obaita plots path to victory


M ost ofWashington
ignored President
Obama's Sept. 16 speech
marking the fifth anniversary of
the financial meltdown. For good
reason; the city was consumed by
Sthe mass murders unfolding at the
NavyYard just a f6w miles from
the White House. When Obama
began speaking, the TV networks
carried his opening remarks on
the shootings; and then cut away
when he got to the substance of his
speech.
But a few people in Washington
were watching. The strategists.
working to guide House Republi-
cans to victory in the 2014 midterm
elections were taking careful note
of the president's words. "I think it
Swas a critically important speech,"
says one Republican closely,
involved in the effort. "It's what he
believes the debate in 2014 is going
to sound like, and it's the open-
ing salvo of defining where this
economy is going and who has the
initiative."
Obama'began, as he always does,
by reminding his audience just how
bad things were in late 2008 and
early 2009. In an astonishingly brief
'time, investment banks failed, the
stock market cratered, jobs disap-
peared, lending dried up and the
auto industry nearly collapsed.
Then, Obama explained, his poli-
cies came to the rescue: stimulus,
infrastructure spending, mortgage
assistance, financial reform, the
auto rescue and more. The payoff
for all that work, he said, is 7.5
million new jobs in the last 3 1/2
years, a falling unemployment rate,
a recovering housing market and a
falling federal deficit.
"What all this means is we've
cleared away the rubble from the
financial crisis and we've begun to
lay a new foundation for economic
growth and prosperity," Obama


ByronYork


said. In the future, he pledged to
"push back against the trends that
have been battering the middle
class for decades."
Unless the bad guys stop him..
"The problem is at the moment,
Republicans in Congress don't
seem to be focused on how to grow
the economy and build the riiddle
class," Obama said. GOP policies
would starve education, research,
infrastructure. They would hurt the
middle class. Sequestration would
cripple vital areas of government.
Obama laid.the blameon the "ex-
treme 'wing,' of the GOP. "I cannot
remember a'time when one faction
of one party promises economic
* chaos if it can't get 100 percent of
what it wants," the president said.
'After all that we've been through
these past five years ... are some
of these folks really so beholden
to one extreme wing of their party
that they're willing to tank the
entire economy?"
Many!Republicans will roll their
eyes; they've heard the president's
rhetoric many times before. But it'
worked in 2012, and with jobs and
the economy still by far the nation's
No. 1 issue, Obama intends to press
those themes hard through 2014.
"This was a speech designed to
create a clear narrative that is going
to last for a while," says the GOP
strategist. "He's saying, 'If it hadn't
been for me, we wouldn't have
turned the economy around, and
the Republicans have been trying
to blow it up.'"


Meanwhile, as Obama lays the
Sgrountdwork forthe coming cam-
paign, Republicans are fighting .
among themselves over an impos-
sible qi0est to defund Obamacare.
After that is resolved, they will ,
fight among themselves over the
circumstances of increasing the
nation's debt limit:And then they'll
.fight among themselves over some-
thingelse.:. .
SEvery day the GOP is'consumed '
with its internal squabbles is a day
Republicans don't concentrate,
on the issues most important to
voters. So now, amid the feuding,
some in the GOP are asking: What
case will we make forourselves .
in 2014? In.the strategist's words,
"What has a Republican Congress
accomplished?"
Obama's speech gave them the
structure of an argument. Those
7.5 million jobs? Well, the vast
majority of them, 5.7 million, came
after Republicans took control of
the House in January 2011. Falling
unemployment? The majority of
that has come since then. Falling
deficit? The same.,.
"There has been an important
Shift in direction'since we've been
in," says the Republican strategist.
"We need to start saying that.",
The point is not to. dump on
Obama. The ppint is to show
what Republicans have done with
power. "He's not going to be up for
re-election again," says the strate-.
gist. "We better start proving to
people that if we're given responsi-
bility, we can do something with it.
This isn't about him any more. It's
about who we are.":
That's something Republicans
need to think deeplyabout if
they ever stop arguing with each
other.

Officials pushing back against navigator ban


The Associated Press'
FORT LAUDERDALE -
Broward County officials
are pushing back against
the state's decision to ban
Affordable Care Act coun-
selors from conducting
outreach at county health
departments, arguing the
county owns the buildings
used by the department.
The heavily Democrat-
ic county commission
passed a resolution with
. an 8-1 vote Tuesday that
will allowscounselors with
educational information
on so-called "Obamacare"
to conduct outreach at all
county facilities, includ-
ing seven buildings leased
by the state health depart-
ment; Pinellas County
officials recently made a
similar argument.

Broward County Mayor
Kristin Jacobs said all
residents should have
access to facts and in-
formation about afford-
able health care without
the politics, especially at
places like county health
departments, which serve
many uninsured and low-
incorie residents. The
county is also holding
seminars at various librar-
ies starting next month in
an efort.to educate the
'more than 392,000 Bro-
ward County residents
who are uninsured or un-
derinsured about health
plans available starting
Oct. 1 under the new on-
line state exchange.
"Unfortunately, our
governor doesn't seem to
share this same opinion
'as he has demonstrated


his attempt to obstruct
the implementation of the
(Affordable Care Act) and
has even gone so far as to
put up roadblocks to pre-
vent the sharing of infor-
mation," Jacobs said.
Under the. exchange,
consumers will be able
to choose from bronze,
silver, gold, platinum
4nd catastrophic plans
that offer a range of
premiums, deductibles
and co-pays depending
oh variables such as how
many doctors they want
included in their network.
Individuals are required,
to have health insurance
from their employer or
purchase it, and will paya
roughly $100'penalty next
year if they don't. Indi-
viduals making, less than
roughly $46,000 a year


will qualify for subsidies
to offset costs in the state

Scott has repeatedly ex-
pressed concerns about

Scott's office deferred
comment to the Depart-
ment of Health.

What you need to know about prepaid cards


FROM CONSUMER REPORTS
By the editors of Consumer Reports

Prepaid cards .are no
longer just for people who
don't have bank accounts.
They're the fastest-grow-
ing payment method in
the U.S., and they're at-
tracting those who want
to budget their spending.
And our new report has
some positive news for
consumers: Fees have de-
clined, and many prepaid
cards offerimiore features.
Consumers Union, the
policy and advocacy arm
of Consumer Reports, has
tracked :the 'prepaid card
market for years, and pre-
vious analyses found that
checking accounts (which
prepaid cards .aim to re-


, place) provided guaran-
teed protection, at a lower
cost, than most cards.
But this year's report on
26 cards found.that some
are now more competitive
with checking accounts.
Prepaid cards are often-
given to teenagers and the
college-bound because
parents can reload them.
from afar and oversee
spending. Big banks such
as Chase and U.S. Bank
have recently joined the
ranks of smaller compa-
nies to roll out their own
cards. In 2012, abbut $77
billion was loaded onto
prepaid cards in the U.S.,
according to the Mercator
Advisory Group.

after Coloo floods


TheAssociated'Press

DENVER-The final six
people who were unac-
counted for. after massive
flooding in Colorado have
been found safe and well,
authorities said Tuesday;
but new spills ,were re-
ported in water-damaged
ofilfields. .
Only one person re-
mained missing and pre-
sumed dead. Eight deaths
have been confirmed. "
It was a remarkable out-'
come after a disaster that
damaged or destroyed'
nearly ,2,000 homes;
washed put hundreds of
miles of roads and' left
many small mountain.
towns completely cut off.
In the -early days of the
flooding, more than 1,200
people were listed as un-
accounted for, but the list
shrank quickly as people
checked in after they were
evacuated.
Meanwhile,' the Colo-
rado Oifl and Gas Conser-
vation Commission said.
three new spills totaling
at least 7,600 gallons had
been discovered as flood
waters recede. Regulators
are now tracking 11 nota-
;ble leaks totaling at least
34,500 barrels, mostly
fromni storage tanks that
toppled or otherwise
failed. ,
Flooding has hampered_
attempts t'o inspect storm
damage. Where crews
can get to the sites, they
,are using containment
,booms and vacuum
trucks to capture and re-
move obil-contaminated
'water, said Todd Hart-
man, a spokesman for the
commission.
Air National Guard he-
licopters have airlifted
more than 3,000 people
and neatly 900 pets to
safety.


"We are really happy
that we were able to clear
all the missing folks,"l
Larimer County sheriff's
spokesman John Schulz,.
said, adding that depu-,,
ties were saddened by the '
deaths. '
SThe 'woman who Is f-
missing and presumed
dead is 60 and lived in .'
hard-hit Big Thompson
Canyon. Schulz said eye- '
witnesses saw the woman-
in the water, and search-'"
ers have found no trace',
of her. Her name hasn't
been released. :.
The death t61 was dra-
maticallv lower than the
144 people killed in 1976
when a flash flood thun-
dered down Big Thomp-
son Canyon. About a foot' ,
*of rain fell at the head of
the. canyon in just -four
hours,' triggering the
deadliest flash flood in
state history. : ,' -
The difference was:,
that this month's ,floods,; '
.which started in earnest..
Sept. 12, arose oyer ape-
riod of days, giving-most
people time to get to safe-
ty, Schulz said. .
The National Weather.-
Service said between 7
and 18 inches of rain fell
over an eight-day span, / -
primarily in Larimer and
Boulder counties. ,
Five of the final six
people who were unac-,,
counted for contacted
authorities after their
names were made public, -
Schulz said. Invesdgators
found the sixth person
after realizing they had'
been working from an in-
correct spelling of his last
name.
No official estimate
-has been released on the
cost of the floods, which
wiped out 200 miles of
state roads and 50 state
bridges.

Court: Applicants wrongly denied US citizenship


The Associated Press

BROWNSVILLE, Texas
For more than two de-
cades, Sigifredo Saldana
Iracheta insisted he was
a-U.S. citizen, repeatedly
explaining to immigration
officials that he was born
to an American father and
Sa Mexican mother in a
city just south of the Texas
border.
Year after year, the fed-
eral government rejected
his claims,'deporting him
at least four times and at
one. point detaining him
for nearly two years as, he
sought permission to join
his wife and three children
in South Texas. '
In rejecting Saldana's bid
for citizenship, the govern-
ment sought to apply an
old law that 'cited Article
314 of the Mexican Con-
stitution, which suppos-
edly dealt with legitimiz-
ing out-of-wedlock births.
But there was a problem:
The Mexican Constitution
has no such article.'
The error appears to
have originated in 1978,
and it's been repeated
ever since, frustrating an
untold number of people
who are legally entitled
to U.S. citizenship but
' couldn't get it.
S"What this looks like is
nobody's ever checked it
out. And it is 'shocking,"
said Matthew Hoppock, a
Kansas City attorney who
specializes in federal ap-
peals related to immigra-
tion issues.
Saldana's case was fi-
nally resolved earlier this
month, when the 5th U.S.
Circuit Court of Appeals
dismissed -the govern-
ment's explanation of a
"typo" and ruled that he
had been a citizen since
birth. The error, the court
said, had been "perpetu-
ated and uncorrected" by
the Department of Home-
land Security.
For the 49-year-old la-
borer and sometime car-
penter, the Sept. 11 deci-
sion ended a grueling and

costly ordeal. After serv-
ing a prison sentence for
a 1989 drug conviction in
Texas, he told authorities
he was a U.S, citizen, but
was deported in 1992. Be-
tween 2002 and 2007, he
applied four times for a
certificate of citizenship.
Each time hewas deport-
ed, he was separated from
his family.
"I have always lived with
a fear in my house, that
whichever night, they'll
arrive and arrest me," said
Saldana, who was born
in 1964.in'the border city
of Matamoros, across
the Rio Grande fromni
Brownsville.
Days after the ruling,/
Saldana still seethed with'
frustration for all the re-
jections, for every time
his family had to scrape
together money to hire
another lawyer. He rued
time missed with his chil-
dren, the low wages he en-
dured as a worker without
papers and the responsi-
bilities that fell on his wife,
Laura.
Saldana argued that he
automatically became a
U.S. citizen at birth be-


cause his father was an
American.
But because his ,par-
ents were not married,
U.S. authorities claimed
he should have been "le-
gitimated" by age 21 in a
process they .claimed was
governed by Mexican" law,
specifically the phantom
Article 314.,
A 2008 letter from U.S.
Citizenship and Immigra-
tion Services cited the ar-
ticle and said the only way
for Saldana to gain legal le-
gitimacy would have been
for hisparents to marry.
The marriage never hap-
pened, but it didn't have
to.
'Saldana's birth certifi-
cate registered with the
Mexican state of Tamau-
lipas includes both his
parents' names. The ap-
pellate court said that was
enough.
At oral arguments last
month in Houstoni, Judge
Jennifer Walker Elrod was
incredulous.
"So all along, that's been
in this case, and you all
have been citing this over'
and. over again to people
for years now, and you


can't even look it up in
Mexican law,"? Walker El-
rod said to government at-
tornmey Aimee Carmichael.
"It doesn't even exist."
SHomeland Security offi-
cials did not respond ,to a
request for comment., -,
The court said the gov-
ernment had "relied on
provisions of the Mexican
Constitution that either
never existed or do not
say what DHS claims they


them you are not citizens
because of this law that
doesn't exist"
Ignacio Pinto-Leon, as-
sistant director of the Cen-
ter for U.S. and Mexican
Law at the University of
Houston Law Center, said
the Mexican Constitution
contains little related to
family law and nothing
about legitimizing out-
of-wedlock births. The
court's hypothesis that the
government was actually
trying to reference state
civil code instead of the
constitution is possible,
but would still be mistak-
en, he said.
It's unclear just how
many cases have been af-
fected by the -error. The
court's opinion cited four
in addition to the original
one in 1978, and there are
surely others. Inmmiigra-
tion cases are not open to

Dismissal sought of Petraeus-related lawsuit


The Associated Press

WASHINGTON The
Obama "administration
on TuesdaV sought dis-
missal of a lawsuit by a
Tampa, Fla., business-'
woman whose complaint
to the FBI led to Gen. Da-
vid Petraeus' ouster as CIA
director.
If a federal judge allows
the lawsuit by Jill Kelley
to proceed, the case could
-delve into the roles played
in the Petraeus scandal by
the FBI, the Pentagon and
other parts of the Obama
administration.
Kelley wants to find out
who in the U.S. govern-


ment leaked her ,name
and some of her emails to
the news media amid the
uproar over Petraeus' af-
fair with Paula Broadwell,
author of a biography on
Petraeus. The leaks placed
Kelley in the middle of
an avalanche of unfavor-
able publicity an'd as a
result, she shouldered
the blame as the villain in
the downfall of Petraeus
and Gen. John Allen, the
top U.S. commander in
Afghanistan, the lawsuit
states.
The suit claims the leaks
violated the 'Privacy Act,
which was enacted in 1974

Kenyan president: Mall terrorists defeated


The Associated Press

NAIROBI, Kenya Ke-
nya's president proclaimed
victory Tuesday over the
terrorists who stormed a
Nairobi mall, saying secu-
rity forces had "ashamed
and defeated our attack-
ers" following a bloody
four-day siege in which
dozens of civilians were
killed.
President Uhuru Kenyat-
ta said the dead -included
61 civilians whose bodies
have been recovered so
far and six security forces,
While some 175 were in-
jured, including 62 who
remain hospitalized.
Three floors of the mall
collapsed and several bod-
ies were trapped in the
rubble, said Kenyatta. His
office later said a terrorist's
body was among those in
the debris.
Five other extremists
were killed b :gunfire and
another 11 other suspects
had been arrested, he said;
authorities had previously
announced the arrest of
seven at the airport and
three elsewhere.,:
"These cowards will meet
justice as well as their .ac-
complices : and patrons,
wherever they are," Ke-
nyattd said, in a televised
address to the nation.

became president in April.
* "Fellow Kenyans, We.
have been badly hurt and
feel great, pain and loss.
But we have.been brave,
united and strong," said
Kenyatta, .te son of the
country's founding presi-
dent, lomo Kenyatta. "Ke-'
nya has stared down evil
and triumphed."
Kenyata's statesman-
like demeanor over the
terror crisis is at odds with
the charges he faces at the


International Criminal
Court' for crimes against
humanity in which he is
alleged to have incited'
violence following Kenya's
2007 elections.
Kenyatta declared three
days of national mourning
startingWednesday.
At the Westgate Mall,
there were no immediate
signs of the Kenyan Se-
curity forces closing their
operation. ,
Two Kenyan,, soldiers
who had recently been


.inside 'the mall told The
Associated Press shortly
before the president spoke
that the operation was ef-
fectively finished, but they
said security forces were
still combing the facility
and had not definitively

Benedict defends
abuse record
in letter to atheist
VATICAN CITY- Seven
months after leaving the
papacy, emeritus Pope
Benedict XVI broke his
self-imposed silence,
Tuesday by releasing a
letter to one of Italy's best-
known atheists in which
he'denied covering up for
sexually abusive priests
and, defended Christianity
to non-believers.
It was the first work pub-
lished by Benedict since


he retired arid his first-
ever denial of personal
responsibility for the sex
scandal. But what made
the letter ptiblished in'La
Repubblica more remark-
able was that it appeared
just two weeks after Pope
Francis penned a similar
letter to the newspaper's
atheist editor.
The Vatican spokesman,
the Rev. Federico Lom-
bardi, said the appearance
of the letters was pure
coincidence. But they
provide evidence that the
two men in white, who live

2-game losing streak


Despite losses, MHS coach says

'We're doing a lot of things right'


BY DUSTIN KENT

The Marianna Bulldogs will
look to snap a two-game losing
streak Friday night when they
head to Tallahassee to take on
the Chfles Timberwolves&
The Bulldogs have started
the season 1-3 and are coming
off back-to-back home losses
to Wakulla and North Florida
Christian, the last of which
came Friday in a wild, back-
and-forth affair.


Marianna led the Eagles
13-3 before NFC reeled off 27
straight points, with the Bull-
dogs storming back with two
fourth quarter touchdowns to
cut the margin to 30-27 before
the Eagles ran out the clock
thanks to a pair of late penal-
ties on the Bulldogs.
It was a tough loss to take,
but MHS coach Mark Beach
said there were positives to
take in defeat, including the
team's 420 total yards of of-


fense and 348 yards rushing.
Running backs Tommy
White and Teon Long both
had big games, with White go-
ing for 162 yards and a touch-
down and Long 138 yards and
two scores.
"We played really good in
spurts," Beach said. "We're
doing a lot of things right; we
just can't get over that hump
as a team. W\e had a lot of self-
inflicted wounds. bYou can't

with the way we

not happy with
the outcome, but
we've got room for
improvement and
we still haven't

"I don't Want any out-

Although Mettenberger
prefers not to dwell on
how intensely personal
this week's matchup with

also hard to. deny it.
After all, it's not every,
week that a quarterback
faces the very program he
revered as a kid, and'for
which his mother would
be working this week' if
Georgia coach Mark Richt
hadn't givenher sbme.time
off to escape the limelight.
"It'd be awkward for her


to be hanging around,"
Richt -said of Tammy
Mettenberger, adding that
he told her to just try and
enjoy a week off at- a time
when she doesn't normally
get one.

"We all really like Zach

Richt also said he did
not intend to bring uip the
Mettenberger 'storyline
with his players, but rath-
er would talk about him
like any other opposing
quarterback.
"We're not 'going, to be
worrying about, 'He's Zach
Mettenberger,' so much as
he's 6-foot-5, 230-whatev-
er-he-is, and can sling it;"
Richt said. .":

Penn State



NCAA to restore football scholarships


The Associated Press

HARRISBURG, Pa. -
Penn State will gradually
get back football schol-
arships taken away over
the Jerry Sandusky .child
molestation. scandal, the
NCAA announced Tues-
day, crediting the univer-
sity for making signifi-
,cant improvements to its
athleticsprograms.
Five scholarships will
be restored next year and
15 more will be phased in
^, .- - -' .. ^ :. -


until the school reaches
the limit of 85 in 2016-
17, a season earlier than
the school had agreed to,
college sports' governing
body said. The NCAA said
the unanimous decision
by its executive commit-
tee was based on the rec-
omnmendation of former
U.S. Sen.. George Mitch-
ell, who has been serving
as Penn State's athletics
integrity monitor. :
S"This action provides
an opportunity to recog-


nize Penn State's signifi-
cant momentum, while
also providing additional
opportunities for stu-
dent-athletes,'" said Wake
Forest University presi-
dent Nathan Hatch, chair
of the NCAA's Division I
board of directors, which
endorsed the decision.
The penalties came
amid heavy criticism ,pf
university leaders' re-
sponse to complaints
abotif Sandusky. Penn
State and the NCAA


agreed to the penalties
by entering into a con-
'sent decree more than
a year ago, shortly after
Sandusky was convicted
of 45 counts of sexual.
abuse. They 'also require
the school to pay a $60
million fine and serve a
four-year ban on post-
season play. The NCAA.
also eliminated 112 wins
by the football program.
SPenn State president
Rodney Erickson called
the restoration of schol-


warships 'particularly wel-
come news for student-
athletes who ,want to
attend Penn State.
"As we promised
throughout this process,
we are committed,to im-
proving all our policies,
procedures and actions,"
Erickson said.'
The- NCAA said it also
may reduce the postsea-
son play ban, depending
on the university's future
progress. Mitchell said
it was premature to say


which other sanctions
might be changed.
"This was a positive re-
sponse to positive action,
and as to the future, we'll
have to. make judgments
in the future," Mitchell
told reporters. in a con-
ference call. He said the
decision was particularly
warranted by the actions
of Erickson and other
university leaders "in'the
face of considerable op-
position within .thePern
State community."

The Associated Press


SNORMAN, Okla. For a
quarterback with exactly
. pne collegiate start, Blake
Bell is about as prepared
as onf -can be to face a
marquee opponent on the
road.
That's how Oklahoma
coach Bob 'Stoops sees
it. The' Sooners expect a
calm demeanor from Bell
Son Saturday when No. 14
Oklahoma (3-0) plays at
No. 22 Notre Dame (3-1),
because while the junior
didn't make. his first start
until Sept. 14 against Tul-
sa, he's played in plenty
of big games during his
career.
"He's a great competi-
tor, and he's been in a lot
ofcritical, important situ-


nations, and he's handled.
them well," Stoops said. "I
would say yes, it does give
him an advantage that
way. He's not like a .true
first-time guy out. there
playing,' because for the,
last few years,: he's been in
a-lot of big games in those
kinds of situations where it
matters, his read or where
he goes with the ball."
SBefore, this season, Bell
was used primarily in the
run-oriented ."Belldozer"
short-yardage package, in
.,which the Sooners .tried
to take advantage of his 6.-
foot-6, 252-pound" frame.
He played in 20' games
during, his freshman and
sophomore seasons, rush-
ing for 372 yards and 24
touchdowns.
One of those scores


came in a 30-13 loss to
Notre Dame last season.
It was the first rushing
touchdown' Notre Dame
surrendered in 2012.
"He's made a lot of big
plays for us on the road and
in. big games,'.' senior cen-
ter Gabe Ikard said of Bell.
"I dop't think pressure's
one of the things, that's
going to affect him.. He's
been in big moments."
Bell lost a' much-hyped
preseason battle for the
starting job to freshman
Trevor Knight. But Knight
proved ineffective passing
the football against Loui-
siana-Monroe and West
Virginia,, then suffered a
bruised knee.
Bell came on in relief and
finished off a 16-7 win over
the Mountaineers, 'then


took a star turn in a 51-
20 romp over Tulsa, com-
pleting 27 of 37 passes for
413 yards and four'touch-
Sdowns the most yards
and touchdowns ever by
an ',Oklahoma quarter-
back making his debuts

earned him Big 12 Confer-
ence offensive player of

"I felt comfortable back
there,"' Bell said. "As a
quarterback, you never
want to feel like you're not
comfortable. That's when
you. are starting to. move
around and get out of the
pocket when you don't
need to. I just try to keep
calm and stay back there.

Sat home to end, a thrill-
ing 2-1 victory at Wrigley
Field that reverberated in
a bar 500 miles to the east,,
where Rowland let a gener-
ation of anguish and angst
melt away.
"I was freaking out'".
Rowland said.
He wasn't alone.
Ata time of year when the
Pirates are typically play-


ing out the string and at-
tention in the self-dubbed
"City of Champions" turns
to the Steelers and the Pen -
guins, the Pirates -' yes,
the Pirates are currently
the hottest thing going.

cups of coffee in hahd try-.
ing to fend off the effects of
another late night in a sea-

Rick Hilinski ducked in
to pick up a pair ofhooded

sweatshirts was for him.
The other was for his son,
R.-K., born a few months
before Bream's now iconic
slide sent the club spin-
ning into a record-setting.
run of futility.
Hilinski became -a sea-
son-ticket holder in 2011,
believing the hiring of.
manager Clint Hurdle and
the emergence of talented
center fielder Andrew Mc-
Cutchen were harbingers
of the clouds finally part-
ing. Hilinski remembers
the good old days, when
:Roberto Clemente tracked
down fly balls in the out-
, field at Three Rivers Sta2
'diumn and Willie Stargeff
tried to hit home runs into
the Allegheny River.
The Pirates used to be
'postseason regulars' back
then. Between 1960 and
1992, the Pirates won three
World Series and made the
playoffs '10 times. ,Hilin-

watched a renaissance de-

of rebounding and putting
pressure on those guys.
"I was very happy with
the way we played. I was
not happy with the out-
come, but we've got room
for improvement and we
still haven't played our
best football game yet."
Of course, selling the
players on positive prog-
ress in a loss can be dif-
ficult, but the coach said
he's trying, to keep the
Bulldogs focused on con-
tinuing to make strides
forward.
'"You take encourage-
ment from everygame, but
it's hard to do sometimes
because people want to'
win. That's what we're try-
ing to do," he said. "When
you're dealing 'with kids
:in high school with their
attention spans, it can be,
',hard to keep them focused
even after a win, so you've
got to 'continue to .,poke,
and prod and get/ across
your message. What I like
to tell them is that all of
our goals are still ahead of
us. We can still win a dis-
trict championship, go to
the playoffs, and have .a
successful season.". "
The Btulldogs won't get
their first chance to make
a move toward the play-
offs until their district
'opener Oct. 4 in. Havana


against East Gadsdein.
In the meantime, they'll
take on .a 7A Chiles team
still looking for its first vic-
tory after starting the year
0-3 with losses to Godby,
Mosley, and Fort White.
Only the Mosley game
was close, with the Dol-
phins outlasting the Tim-
berwolves in' a wild 54-
53' shootout, .but Beach
said he expects his team
to have to dig deep to
get back'into the win
column.
. "Both of us are sort of
on the mat right now, so
we're going into battle and
one of us is ,going to come
out smelling good, so we
have to fight," thecoach
said. "They're a big,% well-.
coached team and 'they
have a heck .of a sched-
ule. like we do. Both of us
have just been taking our
lumps."
It's not a district game,
but the Bulldogs will' do
well to build some positive
momentum going into
next., week's showdown
with the defending dis-
tricqt champion Jagtars.
"Obviously it's huge. We
need to put somethingg
together. I think every-
body realizes that," Beach
said. "It would be nice to
get a win and go into East
Gadsden with a good taste
in our mouths. knowing
we're going to have to hat-
tle to get out .of- Havana
with a victory",. ..

Annie's Mailbox


, Dear Annie: I have been married for 15
years. My husband and I still live under
the same roof (for convenience), but
'we have drifted our separate ways. The
problem is, our teenage son cannot stand
to be in the same room with his father.
All they do is argue, and my husband
pouts like a baby, bottom lip. and all.
, I have asked our son to try to ignore
Dad in order to keep the peace, but it is:
gettingworse. This man, whowanted.,
to have a child, has spent little time :
with our son over the years. When I was '
working and he had to watch our son, he
'would have his parents come over, and ,
Sthen he and his father wouldleave; let-
ling my mother-in-law babysit. On week-
ends, he managed never to be home.
Nowthat our son is older, my husband
thinks he has a personal slave to do all
the yard work and dishes and put his
stuff away when he'comes home. Also,
he and Grandpa have no qualms about


pointing out what this kid does wrong,
badgering him about it arid never meni--
tionngthe-things he does well.
I have had it. I don'twantmysonto :
grow up to be like his father. Should I
stay here,,or should I take my son and
leave?
-FED UP INPENNSYLVANIA

Dear Fed Up: There is ,a lot going on
here. You and your husband obviously'
no longer connect, and your soii may '
be acting out his frustrations with the
situation. Dad has no idea how to com-.
municate with his son.Neither you
nor your son is happy with Dad. If the
marriage is dead, please stop hanging
around the corpse, Your son will benefit
from an emotionally stable home. Speak
with lawyer before deciding which of.
you should move out.All of you would
benefit from counseling, and we hope
you will consider it. ,

Thomas Fuller, an Eng-

'Ifthou art abridge

blind. Listen carefully to
'the auction and watch
closely every card played.
In today's deal, South
did not draw the logi-
cal conclusion from the
auction. Look at his hand.
He dealt and opened one
spade, West overcalled
one no-trump (strong),
and North responded
three diamonds. After East
passed, what should South
have done?
West's choice of overcall
would not have appealed
to everyone. It described.
the hand strength, but hid
her five-card major.
North's three-diamond
response described her
hand well -- a good long

suit and nothing else.
(With a strong hand,
she would have doubled
'for penalty.) South had
no extra values and no


good fit for diamonds, so
he should have passed,
reaching a contract that
could have been made. .
Three no-trump, though,
had no chance. West,
thinking that her partner
had no points,. led the
heart two, which was theo-
retically fourth-highest.'
She purposely falsecarded.
South, thinkldngWest
had the spade ace and
queen, won with his heart
jack, played a diamond
to dummy's jack, and led
a club to his queen. West
won and continued with
theheart nine. South won
and played another dia-
mond, but West took her
ace and cashed her three
heart tricks. East discour-
aged in spades, and South
also pitched two spades.
Then West accurately
exited with a club, leaving
South stuck in his hand.
The contract went down
four.

WR breaks arm


in 1-car crash


The Associated Press

ALLEN PARK, Mich.. -
Detroit Lions receiver Nate
Burleson broke his arm in
a single-car accident early
Tuesday after he reached
over to keep two pizza box-
es from falling off the front
passenger seat, authorities
said. "
SBurleson's car hit a center
median wall on a highway
in suburban .Detroit and
he was taken to a hospital.
Michigan State Police Lt.
Mike Shaw said there were
no indicators of alcohol on
the scene or on Burleson's
person after the crash at
2:25 a.m.
, Coach Jim Schwartz
stopped short of writing off
the rest. of Burlesons sea-
son, but surgery is sched-
uled forWednesday.
"It's not an- emergency
surgery," Schwartz said.
"'!Nate'll be back at some
point, and when he will,
he will be a big contributor
again to ouir teamn"
The team didn't' say
which arm was broken.
Burleson has a team-


high 19, catches -- 10 for
first downs and his 239
yards receiving trail only
teammate Calvin Johnson
this. season. The 11-year
veteran had six receptions
for' 116 yards, his highest
total since 2007, on Sun-
day to help Detroit win at
Washington for the first
time in'franchise history.
'Any time you're in a
highway accident, there's
potential for worse than
broken bones," Schwartz
said. "I think we've all dealt
with .some sort of distrac-
tion driving before. I've
cured myself of texting and
driving. I did for about two
months and now I've got
that SYNC thing with the
Fords. I' never, even touch
my cellphone in the car,
but one thing that I prob-
ably need to cure myself of
is eating and driving.
"There's too many times
I leave the office real late
at night, and you grab
something and I've had
it happen to me drop it
on your lap or do some-
thing else. That's stuff we
all need to learn from."


49ers


Niners LB leaves team for rehab


The Associated Press

SANTA CLARA, Calif.
The San Francisco
49ers are prepared to go
forward without star line-
backer Aldon Smith for as
long as it takes for him to
get clean, healthy and im-
prove his life.
Smith was placed on
the reserve, non-football
*injury list' Monday as
he enters rehab for sub-
stance abuse and begins
what team CEO Jed York
has termed an indefinite
absence.
"I am taking a leave
of absence to address
my health," Smith said
through the 49ers. "I am
sorry that I have affected
my team; my family and
the organization. I will do
everything in my power to
handle this situation the
best way possible. I ap-
preciate the support of the
49ers and our-fans."
The NFL said there is
no minimum number of
games Smith must miss
on the reserve non-foot-
ball injury list, and he can
.return when ready.,
Oi whether he expects
Smith to return this sea-;
son, coach Jim Harbaugh
said only, "there's a pro-
cess, we're going to respect
that process."
Smith played Sunday

rested and jailed Friday

after the 27-7 home loss
to the Colts, and now his

Louis on Thursday,
"We're very supportive of
Aldon aswe are of all of our
players, all of our coaches,
our personnel. Always
'support it in house," Har-
baugh said. "We've hashed
through it, now we're tak-
ing steps and Aldon's tak-
ing steps. We support him
in that."
San Francisco didn't im-
mediately announce a cor-
responding roster move.
"We have a pretty gdod
idea what we're going to
do and we'll make that an-
nouncement," Harbaugh'
said. ,
