Russ House roundtable pending


BY DEBORAH BUCKHALTER
dbuckhalter@jcfloridan.com,.


Wednesday morning, Jack-
son County Administrator
* Ted Lakey and Marianna City
Manager Jim Dean made
tentative plans to talk with
Chamber of Commerce CEO
.Jeff Massey on Thursday
about the possibility of a city-
county effort to ensure that
the Chamber-owned historic
Russ House remain a public
structure.
The Chamber formally of-
fered it .to the county for
$195,000 on Tuesday. several
weeks after the county reject-


ed the Chamber's first over-
ture; the Chamber had first
offered the Russ House and
the adjacent Brown House at
a bundled price of $235,000,
saying it wanted to work with
the county toward keeping
the structure public. And the
Chamber started advertising
it on the open market at a
price of roughly $550,000, but
later reduced the open mar-
ket price to $265,000, the fig-
ure at which the market price
currently remains.
After Tourist Development
Council Director Pam Fuqua
told the county board about
the $195,000 offer, indicating


that the TDC recommends
the purchase, County Com-
missioner Chuck Lockey
surprised Fuqua and some
others by saying that he and
Dean had talked informally ,
-about a joint venture related
to the Russ House.
Currently, the Russ House
is rented by the county to
serve as the home of .the
Tourist Development Coun-.
cil and Visitor's Center. The
Chamber, in turn, subleases
back some office space in the
building for its own purposes.
The arrangement allows the

Floridians wanting to
purchase the lowest-cost
plan would pay $257 a-
month on' average.
Wednesday's release also
showed the price range of
premiums based on the
type of plan a person gets.
A 27-year-old, not
qualifying for tax credits,
could pay as little 'as $132
a month for the lowest
level plan covering only
catastrophic events, but
spend $229 a month on
the highest-benefits plan,
known as "gold." If ,too
many young, healthy
adults find those costs
too high 'and instead opt
to pay a $100 a year fine;
it could throw the en-
tire system off balance as
insurers are banking
on the enrollment of


so-called "young iivin-
cibles" to offset the costs
of caring for older, sicker
adults.
In many counties, Florid-
ians will be able to choose
from six or seven carriers.
But Bay, Franklin, Glades,
Jefferson and Madison
were among the 20 mostly
rural 'counties where con-
.sumers will only have one
option, according to state
insurance officials.
"Before the Affordable
Care Act was passed, in-
dividual markets in way
too many states were
dominated by just one or
two companies and most
consumers simply didn't
have a lot of options from
which to choose," Health
and Human Services Sec-
retary Kathleen Sebelius
said during a phone call
with reporters, Tuesday
afternoon.
Federal. health' officials:


were careful not to deffni-
tively say rates would be
cheaper under the Afford-
able Care Act, stressing
it's impossible to compare
rates to those in the exist-
ing marketplace because
plans under the new
health law are required to
cover more benefits. But
,Cohen said consumers will
have high quality coverage
at competitive rates, which.
will be even more appeal-
ing after the tax credits.
Florida Republicans are
vehemently pushing back
against implementing
parts of the law. The Flor-
ida Department of Health
recently ordered county
health departments across
the state to ban "naviga-
tors" from conducting Out-
reach on their property.
Gov. Rick Scott, 'a vo-
cal opponent of so-called
"Obamacare," has also fre-
quently expressed concern
about the security of peo-
ple's personal information,
including their tax ififor-
mation and Social Security
number, as they sign up for
health coverage.
Under the new online
exchange, consumers will
be able to choose from
bronze, silver, gold, plati-
num and catastrophic
plans that offer a range of
premiums, deductibles
and co-pays depending
on variables such as how
many doctors they want
included in their network.
Anyone making below
the poverty line won't
be eligible for subsidies
through the online mar-
ketplace. Federal health
officials anticipate roughly
1 million Floridians will
fall into a gap where they
can't get health insurance
because the state rejected,
Medicaid expansion.

Schools criticized for hair bans


BY LEANNE ITALIE
The Associated Press

"Why are you so sad?" a
TV reporter asked a little
girl with a bright pink bow
in her hair.
"Because they didn't like
my dreads," she sobbed,
wiping her tears. "I think
that they should let me
have my dreads."
With those words, sec-
ond-grader Tiana Parker
of Tulsa, Okla., found her-
self, at age 7, at the center
of decades of debate over
standards of black beauty,
cultural pride and freedom
of expression.
It was no, isolated inci-
dent at the predominantly
black Deborah Brown
Community School, which
in the face of outrage in
late August apologized
and rescinded language
banning dreadlocks, Af-
ros, mohawks and other
"faddish" hairstyles it had
called unacceptable and
potential health hazards.
A few weeks earlier, an-
other charter school, the
Horizon Science Acad-
emy in Lorain, Ohio, sent
a draft policy home to par-
ents that proposed a ban
on "Afro-puffs and small
twisted braids." It, 'too,
quickly. apologized and
withdrew the wording.
But at historically black
Hampton University in
Hampton, Va., the dean
.of the business school
has defended and left in
place a 12-year-old pro-
hibition on dreadlocks
and cornrows for male
students in a leadership
seminar for MBA candi-
dates, saying the look is
not businesslike. '
Tiana's father, barber
-student Terrance Parker,
said he and his wife chose
riot to change her style
and moved the straight-A
Student to a different pub-
lic school, where she now
happily sings songs about
her hair with friends.. :,
"I think it stills hurts her.
But the way I,. teach: my
kids is regardless of what
people say, you be your-
self and you be happy with
who you are and how God
made you," he said.
STiana added: "I like my
new school better." As for
the thousands of emails
and phone calls of support
the family has. received

said Beverly .,Bond of the


New York-based esteem-

"The public banning of
our hair or anything about
us that looks like we look,
it feels like it's such a step
backward."
in Chicago, LeilaNoelliste

natural hair at Blackgirl

years. She has.followed the
school cases closely. The
28-year-old mother with a
natural hairstyle and two
daughters who also wear
their hair that way said it
is a touchy issue among
African-Americans and
others.
"This is the way the hair

non-black communities
or black communities,
with our natural hair, we
stand out. It evokes a lot of
reaction." '
Particularly painful, said
Noelliste and others, is the
notion that natural styles
are not hygienic.-.
"Historically natural
hair has been viewed as
dirty, unclean, unkempt,.
messy," she said. 'An older
black generation, there's
this idea of African-Ameri-
can exceptionalism, .that
the way for us to get ahead
is to work twice as hard as
any white person and to
prove that if we just work
hard and we look present-
able we'll get ahead, and
that's very entrenched.
My generation,.'we're say-
ing that that'snot fair. We
should be able to show up

Navy Yard Shootiigs


FBI: Gunman left note about radio waves
FBI: Gunman le.ote aotrdowaves


The AssociatedPress,... '

WASHINGTON- Wash-
ington Navy Yard gunman
Aaron Alexis left a note
saying he was driven to kill
by months of bombard-
ment with extremely low-
frequency radio waves,'
the FBI said Wednesday in
a disclosure that explains
the phrase he etched on
Shis shotgun: "My, ELF
Weapon!"
Alexis did not target par-
ticular individuals during
the Sept. 16 attack in which
he killed 12 people, and
there is no indication the
shooting stemmed from
any workplace dispute,
said Valerie Parlave, assis-
tant director in charge of
the FBI's Washington field
office. Instead, authorities'
said, his behavior in the
weeksbefore the shooting
and evidence recovered
from his hotel room, back-
pack and other belongings
reveal a man increasingly
in the throes of paranoia
and delusions.
"Ultra-low frequency at-
tack is what I've been sub-
ject to forthe last 3 months,'
and to be perfectly honest
that is what has driven me'
to this," read an electronic
document agents recov-
ered after the shooting.
The attack came one
month after 'Alexis had
complained to police in
Rhode Island that peo-
ple were talking to' him
through the walls and ceil-
ings of his hotel room and
sending microwave vibra-
.J tions into his body to de-
Iprive him of sleep.


On his shotgun, he had
scrawled "My ELF Weap-
on!" an apparent ref-
drence to extremely low-
frequency waves--along
with "End to the Torment!"
"Not what yall say" and
"Better off this way",-the
FBI said.
Alexis, a 34-year-old for-
mer Navy reservist and
computer .technician for
a government contrac-
tor, used a valid badge to
get into the Navy Yard and
opened fire inside a build-
ing with the Remington
shotgun,, which ,he- had
legally purchased in Vir-
ginia two days earlier. He
also used a 9 mm handgun
that he took from a secu-
rity guard, a weapon found
near Alexis' body. He was
killed in the building by
a U.S. Park Police ,officer
following a rampage and
shootout with.police. that
the FBI said lasted more
than an hour.
- "There are indicators that
Alexis was prepared to die
during the attack and that
he accepted death as the
inevitable consequence of
his actions," Parlave said.
Surveillance video ,re-
leased by the FBI on
Wednesday shows Alexis
pulling his rental car into
a garage, walking into
the building with a bag
and then skulking down a
corridor with a shotgun,
ducking and crouching
around a corner and'walk-
ing briskly down, a flight of
stairs.. The video does not
show him actually shoot-
ing anyone. :

This image, provided by the FBI, shows a close-up of the left
side of Aaron Alexis' Remington 870 shotgun with sawed-off
barrel and stock that he used to shoot and kill 12 people at
the Washington Navy Yard on Sept. 16 in Washington. Etchings
read "Better off this way!" and "My ELF weapon!"


FBI shows Alexis start-
ed the rampage on the
building's fourth floor and
then moved down to the
third and first floors. He
ultimately returned to the
third floor, where he was


killed around 9:25 a.m. FBI
Director James Comey has
said there's no evidence
that Alexis shot down into
the atrium despite earlier
accounts from witnesses
at the scene.

Obamacare


trade-off:


low premium,


high deductible


,BYRICARDO
ALONSO-ZALDIVAR
The Associated Press

WASHINGTON You
might be pleased with the
low monthly .premium
for one of the new health
insurance plans under
President Barack Obama's
overhaul, but the added
expense of copayments
and deductibles could
burn a hole in your wallet.
An independent analy-
sis released Wednesday,
on the heels of an ad-
ministration report em-
phasizing 'affordable pre-
miums, is helping to fill
out the bottom line for
consumers.
The annual deductible
for a mid-range "silver"
plan averaged $2,550 in a
sample'of six states stud-
ied by Avalere. Health,.
or more than .twice the
typical deductible in em-
ployer plans. A deductible
is the amount consumers
must pay eachyear before
their 1lan, starts picking
up the bills.
Americans looking for a
health plan in new state
insurance markets .that
open next week will face
a trade-off familiar: to
purchasers of automobile
coverage: to keep your
premiums, manageable,
you agree to pay a bigger


chunk of the repair bill if
you get in a crash. Except
that unlike an auto ac-
cident, serious illness is
oftennot a self-contained
event. -
SAvalere also, found that
the new plans willrequire
patients to pay a'hefty
share ,of the cost,- 40
percent on average for
certain pricey drugs,
like. the newer specialty
medications used to treat
intractable chronic dis-
eases such as rheumatoid
arthritis and multiple
sclerosis. On the- other
hand, preventive care will
be free of.charge to the
patient.
"Consumers will need
to balance lower monthly
premiums against the po-
tential for unpredictable;
expensive out-of-pocket,
costs in plans with higher
deductibles," said Caro-
line Pearson, a vice presi-
defint of the private market
'analysis firm. "There is a
risk that patients could,
forgo needed .care ..""
Responding to the
Avalere study, the Obama
administration .acknowl-'
edged the.. new plans
aren't as generous as em-
ployer coverage, but said
they nonetheless "repre- -
sent a big improvement
over currently available
individual policies.

Boy, 7, likely bitten by shark at Panama City Beach


From staff report

A 7-year-old boy may
have sustained a shark bite
while standing in ankle-
deep Gulf waters Wednes-
day morning in Panama
City Beach, according to
the Bay County Sheriffs
Office.
Shortlybefore 10:30 a.m.,
a BCSO deputy responded
to Beach Access 16 at 7817
Surf Drive in reference to


a medical complaint con-
cerning a juvenile who
had possibly been bitten
by a shark.
The child's mother told
the officer that her "son
had just gotten in the wa-
ter and was about ankle
deep and started yelling
and crying." She went on
to say that'the boy "ran
out of the water screaming
saying he had been bitten
by a shark."


Asked by the officer if
she'd seen the shark, the
boy's mother replied,
"No, I heard him scream
and just grabbed him
and took him up to the
walkway."
A witness at the scene
was also asked if she had
seen a shark, to which she
replied, "No, I just heard
(the boy) screaming and
(his mother) grabbed him
and we took him up to the


walkway and-put a. towel
on the wound to stop the
bleeding."
EMS arrived and trans-
ported the boy to Bay
Medical Center for further
evaluation..
SLate Wednesday, BCSO
released additional infor-
mation the agency had
received about that morn-
ing's incident.
"Contact has been made
with the boy's mother, who


said the child has received
medical attention and is
doing well."
The mother also told
BCSO that the doctor who
treated her son said punc-
ture wounds on the child's
foot were more than likely
caused by a smallham-
merhead shark or a nurse
shark.
BCSO, says the child's
family is visiting from

Lockey could not be
reached Wednesday for
further details about his
talks with Dean, but Dear
said their conversations
have never gbne beyond
very general terms. The
details will emerge, he
said, as the three entities
sit down and air .out thebi
individual concerns.
"I don't think, there's
anything I can say at this
point, until we've all talked
Sto our respective board
and determine if there's
a scenario that might be
right," Dean said. "Every-
body's going to have to sit
down and say, 'Here are my
expectations,"then we can
' put them in a bag, shake
it up and see-if there's
a scenario that might
work. So far, .this has
been a conversation in
passing as we've run into
each, other from time to
time."
Fuqua said she's hoping
for the best in this new and
unexpected stage of the
process. "It's a very posi-
tive development and I
hope it worksiout," Fuqua
said. "The Russ House has
such a historic connection
to the city, it makes sense
to me"
Jacksoni County Com-
missioner Kenny Stephens
is also vice president of
the TDC. He said he's on
the fence about the coun-
ty purchasing the- Russ
House on its own with bed
tax dollars as some other
TDC members want, and

From Page lA.

Commissioner Jeremy
Branch made a motion to
fund three months on the
condition that the subdi-
vision would pick up the
other half of the bill, but
the motion died for lack of
a second.'
`With the permission of
the county, the subdivi-
sion had funded the first
sixmonths with Municipal
. ServicesTaxing Unit ftuids,
money that is overseen by
the county as the tax-au-
thorizing entity. The first
six months came to a little
over $15,500.
The subdivision start-
ed the medical service
as a pilot, program in
January, and at that time
asked the county to pitch
in half the total estimated
cost of around $31,500.
Commissioners decUined


sees the city's potential
involvement as a positive
thing that could help keep
the Russ House public
without raiding the TDC's
bed thx fund.
"That was kind of a last
minute thing, learning
that the city was entertain-
ing the thought of possibly
buying in, and I'm not re-
ally sure what's going to
come about in the nego-
tiations of it all, but maybe
something can work out,"
Stephens said; "What that
would look like, I don't
know. Could the city buy
it and lease space to the
county for the TDC to. use?
I'm not sure if that's what
they have in mind, but it's
all worth talking about.
I'm not against the pur-
chase on the county's side,
but I'm not necessarily for
it, either. Before I would
agree to that, I'd have to
see that the TDC can af-
ford it and its mainte-
nance. Right now, the bed
tax clears about $210,000
a year that the TDC uses
on various things, plus
there's a 1 percent set
aside. We have to see how
they'd have to bounce the
dollars around to make it
work, as far .as I see it when
I think about whether the
county should go ahead
on its own. I think it cost
$50,000 just to paint the
house a few years ago,
so there will be some
maintenance dollars to
think about. If the city
and county can work
things out in a way to keep
those costs,, from be-
ing such a burden
on one, then, I think
it could be a good thing.
I think it's worthy of
discussion."
SMarianna Mayor Paul,
Donofro Jr. has a foot in
all three entities involved.
He's also the chairman of
the TDC and holds votingg,

He also holds a personal
Chamber membership.
In that unique position,
Donofro is looking at the
matter from all three sides,
and said he can see bene-
fits for. all 'three in certain
scenarios related to the fu-
ture of the Russ House. For
instance, he thinks one
plausible idea is for the
city to purchase the build-
ing and lease itto the TDC,;
with TDC bed tax dollars
paying for maintenance.
"It's one avenue that holds
promise," he said.
For the county to take on
the burden using bed tax
dollars alone, he said, in
order to buy and maintain
it, Donofro said, it would
probably mean taking a
year's worth of bed tax
dollars and also dipping
into the '"ck box" which
contains each fourth
cent of the four pennies
collected on every dollar
that motel guests spend
renting rooms in Jackson
County. Until recently,
the county had set aside
two cents of the four and
the fuhd has grown to
about $1.3 million. Don7o-
fro said that the current
overdue maintenance
needed at the Russ House
would carry an estimated
$150,000 price tag, and
that it would take about
$25,000 a year to cover on-
going maintenance once
the current critical needs
are taken care of.
If the city could own it,
the TDC could rent it and
pay the annual mainte-
nance, perhaps, he said.
SDespite the challenges,
Donofro said he thinks
saving the Russ House as a
public building is critical.


service will be a "month-
to-month" decision after
that.
. "We can't afford to con-
tinue the service ,on our
own; however, we can con-
tinue the service for anoth-
er month or so and we are
going to raise money and
solicit funds:.to continue
it beyond the month,"
Laymon said, adding
that fundraising effort
might include benefit din-
ners and "whatever else it
takes." ,
He said that, despite the
county's failure to kick in
funds, the service will not
be trimmed back to cover
to the subdivision alone.
"We're being put in the
awkward position of sup-
porting a valuable and
lifesaving, program by
soliciting funds, but that
doesn't mean we're going
to deny someone help be-
cause they're just outside
the subdivision," Laymon
said. "This is not'the type


"You start losing your
sense of place as a com-
munity when you start
losing the structures that
make you unique," Dono-
fro said. "We've already
lost so many historical
structures over the last 50
years, I think we all need
to work together to save.
this one if we can. It's in-
cumbent on us as leaders
to keep that from hnap-
pening when we have the
opportunity to keep con-
trol over it. If we can save
one house, preserve it for
future generations to en-
joy, and we can do it to-
gether, that's a legacy that
we can be proud of. I un-
derstand the concerns,
challenges, and oppor-
tunities that all three of
us face, but in the end I
hope that something can
be fashioned that we can
keep it maintained and
publicly accessible. It's
going tp be a lot more
manageable if we work
together. I'm willing to,
keep an open mind, and
it was good to see that the
county took that attitude
on Tuesday." "
Donofro said he's con-
vinced that the Chamber'
can't continue to maintain
the house under the fi-
nancial strain it represents
and that the structure is
in true danger of sale to a
private entity unless the
parties work together now
to save it.
"The fact that the house
was renovated under
a historic preservation'
grant mean that it had to
be done using the kind of
materials that were origi-
nal to its architecture,"
Donofro said. "To the

we can play games about.
We'll be handling our fire
service area with medi-
cal assistance as well, just
as we have been since we
started the pilot program.
We'll go as long as we can
with it."
The EMNS program began
around the same time the
county hired a consultant
'to study the county fire
service, including in it. all
the volunteer units that
respond to fires from vari-
ous communities. A grow-
ing number of those vol-
unteer teams say that the
county stipend they now
receive is not enough to
cover their expenses. At
least one, Alford, is talking
of ending its mutual aid
contract with the county
and scaling back its cover-
age area to its municipal
borders.
The consultant is looking


good, that means we still
have an authentic revival-
ist structure withVictorian
and Greek elements. But
it also means there are
maintenance costs that..
it wouldn't have if more
modern replacement ma-
terials were used in some
cases. So we have to deal
with that. The intricate
wood elements being ex-
posed to the elements, and
other things, figure into
the higher maintenance
costs. For a new build, 10
years would be a very short
time to have to do signifi-
cant maintenance, but for:
something like this, it's not
unusual. ,
"For an entity like the
Chamber ,with limited
funding, maintenance
costs are going to eat us
alive. It was good that the
Chamber stepped up and
took it go that the renova-
tion grants could move
forward and the project
could be done in 2000; it
saved what had become a
dilapidated structure that
was this far from being
torn down. But it's time to
find another solution for
the future and I hope' we
can work together to find
it."
County Administrator
Lakey said he is ready to
roll up his sleeves toward
that goal.
"There is a spirit in the
community" that wants
the Russ House to' stay
in public hands. It's, a
symbol of the commu-
nity and a landmark in
Marianna, the kind :of
thing that draws people
into the city. I think there
maybe awayto form some,'
sort of cooperative, work-
ing together and looking
at all options. Thfiere are
all kinds of things we can
consider. Everything is
on the table, and I think
that's all I can say at this
time about the potential
outcomes."

other fire service matters;
A public hearing to review
the study is set for Oct. 22
at 3 p.m."
Asked whether he felt
the county's fire service
study might result in ad-
dition' fire department
funding that would, as a
result, free up more Hills
dollars for EMS service,
Laymon said he didn't
think so. At any rate, Lay-
mon said, the subdivision
will continue trying to
keep the medical service
afloat on its own.
"We're not planning to
go back and ask them
again- they've made it
clear how they feel about
it, and I doubt that if we
revisit it that we'll get a
different answer," Lay-
mon said.. "I don't want to

sue anymore and we'll just
keep plodding forward.
I don't want to be turned

Massive quake creates island off Pakistan coast


The Associated Press '. ':",

KARACHI, Pakistan
- Alongside the carnage
of Pakistan's massive
earthquake came a new
creation: a small island of
mud, stone and bubbling
gas pushed forth from the
seabed.
Experts say the island
was formed by the massive '-
movement of the earth
during the 7.7-magnitude
quake that hit Pakistan's
Baluchistan province on
Tuesday, killing atleast 285
people.

MNlarco Bohnhoff, a pro-

German Center for Geo-

there are two ways such
islands can be created.
In the first scenario, the
earth's crust violently lifts


up out of the water. In the
second, the earthquake
triggers the movement and
release of gases locked in
the earth resulting in a flow
called a" mud volcano."
Experts are stil trying to

FBI agents work in nightmarish scene at Kenya mall


The Associated Press,.

NAIROBL Kenya -Work-
ing near bodies crushed by
rubble in a bullet-scarred,
scorched mall, FBI agents
began fingerprint, DNA
and ballistic analysis
Wednesday to help deter-
mine the identities and
nationalities of victims
and al-Shabab gunmen
who attacked the shop-
ping center, killing more
than 60 people.
A gaping hole in the
mall's roof was caused
by Kenyan soldiers who
fired rocket-propelled
grenades inside, knocking
out a support column, a
government official told
The Associated Press..
The official, who insisted
he not be identified be-
cause he was sharing
security information, said
the soldiers fired to dis-,
tract a terrorist, sniper
so hostages could be
evacuated.
Video of the roof collapse
showed massive, carnage.
The collapse came Mon-
day, shortly after four large
explosions rang out fol-
lowed by billows of black
smoke. Although a govern-
ment minister said the ter-
rorists had set mattresses
on fire, causing the roof to
collapse, the video showed
such massive destruc-
tion that the explanation
seemed unlikely to be the
full story.
Al-Shabab on its Twitter
feed Wedqesday claimed
that the Kenyan govern-
ment assault team carried
out "a demolition" of the
building.
, The current death toll


is 67 and is likely to climb
with uncounted bodies re-
maining in the wreckage of
the Nairobi mall. Another
175 people were injured,
including more than 60
who remain hospitalized.
At least 18 foreigners were
among those killed.
Al-Shabab, the Somali
Islamic extremist group
.which carried out the at-
tack, said Wednesday
that foreigners were a
"legitimate target" and
confirmed witness ac-
counts that gunmen sepa-
rated Muslims from other
people and let the Muslims
go free. .The others were
gunned down or' taken
hostage. ...
"The Mujahidpen carried
out a meticulous vetting
process at the mall and
have taken every possible
precaution to separate the
Muslims from .the Kuffar
disbelieverss) before car-
Srying out their attack,"
the group said in an email
exchange.with The Associ-
ated Press. ,
Witnesses have told AP
and other media that gun-
men rounded up people,
asked questions about Is-
lam that a Muslim would
know and told the Mus-
lims to leave the mall. Still,
some Muslims were among
the victims.
Also among those killed
when the militants entered
the Westgate Mall on Sat-
urday, firing assault rifles
and throwing grenades
were six Britons and citi-
zens from France, Canada,
the Netherlands, Australia,
Peru, India, Ghana, South
Africa and China.
Asked :i al-Shabab had


intended to kill foreigners.
the group said "our target
was to attack ithe Kenyan
govt on it's soil and any
part of the Kenyan terri-
tory is a legitimate target...
and Kenya should be held
responsible for the loss of
life, whether foreigners or
local."
Al-Shabab had threat-
ened retaliation against
Kenya 'for 'sending its
troops into Somalia
against al-Shabab, and
many of those killed in an
attack that horrified the
world were Kenyans. The
group's 'leader, Ahmed
Godane, said in a new au-
dio statement Wednesday
that the attack was carried
out in retaliation for the


West's support for Kenya's
Somalia invasion and the
"interest of their oil com-
panies." Somalia has un-
tapped energy reserves.
More attacks would
come, Godane said, if Ke-
nya doesn't withdraw its
troops.
Though Kenya's foreign
minister earlier gaid that
"two or three" American
, citizens may have been
involved in the attack, a
Western official said that
after checking passport
and refugee databases,
there is not yet an indica-
tion any Americans were
involved. Several U.S. cit-
ies, notably Minneapolis,
host large Somali-Ameri-
can communities.

The Marianna Middle School
Bullpups made it three wins in a row
Tuesday night with an abbreviated
24-6 road victory over the Walton
Braves.
Marianna led 24-6 at halftime be-
fore the game was called due to in-
coming bad weather.
SThe Bullpups didn't have to go the
full 32 minutes to get the victory, but


it was a dominant effort nonetheless
and one that drew praise from coach
Brad Cross.
"We played probably the best game
we've played so far," he said. "(The
Braves) were a big team coming in
3-1, so I figured this would be our
best test. They were big and athletic,
so I told our guys to come out and

did." .. '
Miarianna jumped out to an 18-0


lead to start the game thanks to a 50-

Walton got one back to make it 18-

Miami's Duke Johnson feeling rested


STHEASSOCIATED PRESS
Miami running back Duke Johnson runs on a
95-yard kickoff return during the first half of
Saturday's game against Savannah State in,
Miami Gardens.


The Associated Press

CORAL GABLtS This time
last year, Miami running back
Duke Johnson was starting
to feel a whole lot of football
wear-and-tear type of pain.
Eventually, it got to the point
where it not only hamperedhis
play, but even kept him from
walking around normally.
These days, nothing hurts.
That might be a great sign for
No. 15 Miami, with the Atlan-
tic Coast Conference schedule
,now looming just a little more
than a week away.
Johnson and the Hurricanes
(3-0) hit the road for the first
time this season on Saturday,
visiting South Florida (0-3).
And Johnson figures to be
well-rested- since the end of
the Florida game, now almost
three weeks ago, Miami's top
offensive weapon will have
gotten all of nine touches. He
s can't recall the last time he felt
so fresh at this point of a sea-
Sson, high school or college.
. "It's huge," Miami coach Al
Golden said. "It's such a big


factor in terms of keeping our
guys fresh. We only have five
guys who are averaging over
45 plays a game right now and
that's huge. So that's money in
the bank now. We've got to use
it now. We've got to work hard
and get stronger, not atrophy,
not lose weight, do all the little
things right."
Johnson was the first one
in the Miami training room
the day after the Hurricanes
grinded out a win over .Florida,
saying everything was sore.
The Hurricanes didn't play the
following week, and then John-
son was barely needed in the
win over Savannah State, a 77-
7 runaway, record-setting win
for Miami.
He put on eight more pounds
of muscle over the offseason in
anticipation of a bigger work-
load., So far, the Hurricanes
haven't had to tax him much -
but his results haven't dipped,
either. Johnson has a touch-
down in all three of Miami's
games this year, extending his
streak to seven straight going
back to 2012.

Bucs bench Freeman, turn to rookie QB


The Associated Press

TAMPA The Tampa Bay Buc-
caneers have benched quarterback
Josh Freeman and replaced him with
rookie Mike Glennon.
The move Wednesday came two
days after coach Greg Schiano in-
sisted Freeman remained the starter
because he gave the team the best
chance to win.
The coach changed his mind after
meeting Tuesday with general man-
ager Mark Dominik and later dis-
cussed the switch with ownership.
"This is a performance-based de-
cision," Schiano said Wednesday.
"We're -not getting the job done on
the field.", -
The winless Bucs have lost their first
three games, two on field goals in the
closing seconds. Freeman has com-
pleted just 45.7 percent of his passes
for 571 yards, two touchdowns and
three interceptions. Dating to last
season, they've dropped eight and
nine games, and the offense hasn't
played well throughout the stretch.
"There are a lot of reasons for it.
It's not'just one guy," Schiano said
of Freeman, who is in the final year
of the contract he signed as a rookie.
"But's that's a critical piece of it. ...
The quarterback touches the ball ev-
ery play."

Anniie's Mailbox


. Dear Annie: I started dating "Zach" 18
months ago and have, been living with
him for almost a year. Things are perfect
except for one thing., I '
Before we met, Zach dated another
girl for three years before me. She was
horrible and&hurtful toward him. When I
began seeing Zach, his ex started harass-
ing me to the point where I had to take
but a restraining order against her.
The problem is, Zach's older sister is
still in constant contact with.the ex. She
always talks about her in front of me and
even allows the ex to babysit her chil--
dren. She often invites the ex to go places
with her and posts pictures of the two of
them on Facebook.
Zach has had many fights with his
sister about this, telling her how hurtful
it is to both of us, yet she still continues
to do it. I've tried everything possible to
make his sister like me, but I can't keep
competingwith the ex. It's causing a


Bridge

Carl Gustav Jung said, "Knowledge rests not upon
truth alone, but upon error also." : '
How.true that is.All bridge players make mistakes.
But each hopes to learn something from those errors.
Today's deal occurred during a social game. First,'
*look at the auction. With which calls do you disagree
and what would you have done differently?
' There were two clear-cut errors (and a few calls that
were debatable). The definite mistakes were, first,
North's passing over two clubs. She might have bid
two no-trump, showing 18-20 points, because partner
had promised some cards with his one-spade bid. (He
would have passed with nothing when East responded
one diamond.) A second possibility was another
takeout double, typically indicatingthree-card spade
support and extra values.
Also, South, over two diamonds, should have com-
peted with two hearts. Of course, that might have got'
his side to four hearts, an unmakable game, instead of
to four spades, the makable game.
Against two spades, West led a low club. South ran
that to his jack, took dummy's top trumps, played
ihree rounds of diamonds, ruffing the last in his hand,
and cashed dummy's two club winners, discarding a
heart while East ruffed in. East shifted to the heart 10,
which South'strangely covered with his king to lose
three tricks in the suit and collect only one overtrick.
Since West was marked with the heart ace, South
should have ducked the heart. West would have won
but would have been endplayed into conceding a
second overtrick.


/. o , o - ,
strain between Zach and his sister. I don't
have issues with anyone else.in his fam-
ily. What can I do to get the exoutofthe
picture permanently?
-, THE CURRENTWOMAN
S: .... ', INHIS'LIFE '

Dear Current; Zach's sister is doing
this for'one of t-o reasons: Either she
likes gettingyour goat, in which case,
your response is very gratifying for her.
Or, she doesn't wantyou to dictate who
her friends can be. Either way, your
response should be the same: Ignore it.
If her main purpose is to annoy you, she
will become bored with the tactic when
she sees it has no effect: And if she is
truly friends with this woman, the
relationship is not your business. The
added benefit of ignoring it is that Zach
.will be grateful. You already have his.,
total support, and that is what really
counts.

TRUEX TRIPPED
Mdichael Waltnrip Pacing tried to get Martin True,.
Jr. into the Chase with some stock -car torrifooler,
at Richmond. Now the one driver at Waltnrip Racing
who was truly battling for position that night is try-
ing to stop a dormirno effect with his career.
His sponsor, IAPA. which has been with Waltrinp
since 2001 said it could not stomach the team's
actions and won't be True.-'s sponsor in 2014.
MWR is scrambling to pull'together a package for'
True.. Will rhe be racing with Waltrip ne..t season?
"I don't Pnow it's too early to tell, to be honest
with you," he said. "I wish I knew aid I wish I could
say, but a lot of circumstances have to play out
and it's so late in the game and late in the season."


rihdart was in single-seateis.
*2.was loqking at all the choices,
andvwhen I started talking to Roger
about it. to tell you the truth, it was,
no-brainer for me," Montoya said
last week.
"I always loved open-wheel. That
is my background. I had seven
great years here, and still have nine
more races with the Target car this
year. When you get a chance to
run for Roger, I wouldn't turn that
down."

winning in New Hampshire. But just in

You don't have Mitb1Matt Fever?
Not even close. Not even the low-
grade form. Sure, you have to respect
,.,"4fattKenseth's rrfome.t-uro., ,YoufWaye
to give a nod to the Mild One's three
wins the past five times he's hit the
go switch. He hasn't had a bad finish
since early August, or a true clunker
since early July. However, some
perspective: He's only 14 points ahead
of Kyle Busch, and just 18 ahead otopl'
Jimbo, who's' w6n five of thesethihng's.'
But doesn't momenturrf equal
horsepower?
Only in a mystical, impossible-to-
explain way. Those pistons and shocks
don't read the current standings, so
they have no clue what's happening
and therefore remain humble. Never
S'forget: In racin', momentum can go
away .with your next set of Good-
years. All it takes is one blip beyond
your control, you're running with the
.mid-packers and wondering what hap-
pened to your. points lead.
.Any hunches'for Dover?
No hunch; just'a'hope: The Chase
standings are already spreading out,
with more daylight than we usually see
after two races. Dover can rattle cages,
so hopefully it can tighten up the loos-
ening playoff bunch.

BUSCH KENSETH
Kyle Busch vs. Matt Kenseth: Busch's
frustration is rising after finishing
second to Gibbs Racing teammate"
Kenseth for a second straight race.
Godwin Kelly gives his take: "Busch
is not happy he's the No. 2 driver at
Gibbs Racing. Busch could boil over in
the next few weeks."
