DRIVER AIRLIFTED AFTER


ONE-VEHICLE CRASH


'" ... .. PHOTO BYZAKAYACARD
he driver of this Mercury Marquis was taken by medical helicopter to Southeast
Alabama Medical Center Sunday after a one-vehicle crash near the intersection
of State Road 71 and Blue Springs Highway in Marianna. According to a Florida
Highway Patrol representative, the. driver was identified as 77-year-old Delmer
Tillman. FHP's J.D. Johnson reported that the car struck a light pole, Which caused the
power to flicker off briefly for some~residents livingin the area. The car overturned
on the roadway. Because radiator and transmission fluid spilled from the vehicle as
a result of the crash, H&H Towing service put a quick-dry substance on the road for
safety's sake, then took the car to the company's yard on Jackson Street in Marianna.
No further details on the crash were immediately available.

Man charged with
trying to kill judge
JACKSONVILLE -A
Jacksonville felon is facing g
charges after authorities
sayhe tried to assassinate
a federal judge in June.
SThe U.S. Attorney's Of-
fice released a 25-count
indictment Monday that
charges 24-year-old Aaron
Markus Richardson with
: attempted murder of a
U.S. district judge and
possession of a stolen
rifle by a felon. He faces
a possible life sentence if
convicted.
Authorities say Rich-
ardson was armed with a
stolen Savage Arms .30-06
rifle in the early morning
hours of June 22 when
fired several shots at the
home of Judge Timothy
J. Corrigan, who had just
returned home from a
wedding with his wife.
The bullets missed Cor-
rigan, but he was injured
by breaking glass.
Corrigan previously
convicted and sentenced
Richardson for attempt-
ing to make'an incendiary
device in a 2008 case.

FAA probing small
plane crashing Ga.
THOMASTON, Ga. -
Federal Aviation Adminis-
tration officials say they're
investigating a small plane
crash in middle Georgia.
FAA spokeswoman Kath-
leen Bergen says a single-
engine plane registered
to an owner in Franklin
County, Fla. crashed
Monday nearThomaston,
which is about 45 miles
west of Macon.
Upson County Sheriff
Dan Kilgore says a man
and woman aboard the
plane were en route to
Jackson, Ga. from Dog
Island, Fla., at the time of
the crash.
Kilgore says the plane
was built in 1941 and
landed in a rural area.
Kilgore says the male pas-
senger was hospitalized
with minor injuries and
the female passenger was
not injured.
Authorities could not
provide additional details
but Bergen says the cause
qf the crash is under in-.
vestigation.

Prosecutors rest in
Allied Veterans case
SANFORD Prosecu-
tors have rested their case
in the prosecution of a
Jacksonville attorney who
they claim was the mas-
termind behind a veterans
group that operated a $30C
Million gambling opera-
don." .
Prosecutors told jurors
at attorney Kelly Mathis'
trial Monday that they
had rested their case, less
than 10 days after opening
statements.
The prosecution rested
without calling some of
Nlathis'key co-defendants
who had reached deals
With prosecutors.
Mathis' attorney says
the fact that prosecutors
didn't call leaders of Allied
Veterans of the World or
the owner of a company
that made software for
Allied Veterans centers
*shows the weakness of the
prosecution's case.
Prosecutors on Monday
refused to comment on
why they didn't call the
other cy-defendants as
witnesses. Defense at-
torneys will ask the judge
Tuesday to dismiss
the case. "

The Associated Press

TALLAH-ASSSEE Flori-
da is joining 40 other states
in the U.S. where it is ille-,
gal to text and drive. ,
The ban is one of more
than two dozen laws
passed, by the Republi-
can-controlled Legislature
scheduled to kick in on
Tuesday. Other ..new laws
include one that gives citi-
zens the right to speak at
government meetings.
The prohibition on tex-
Sting while driving comes
after several years of trying
by legislators. Previous at-
tempts stalled in the face
of House Republican op-
position, with conservative
members worried about
government intrusion into
people's lives.
Some have called the
law '"watered down" since ,
it is'only a secondary of-
Sfenrise to read or send a text,
email:. or instant message
on a smartphone while
-'driving. That means police
have to first stop drivers
for another offense like an
illegal turn.
SSen. Nancy Deter, 1R-
Venice and the sponsor of
the legislation, says it will
still act a deterrent es-
pecially among teenagers
just starting to drive.
"My whole ptirpose in
the law is just to be able to
tell teenagers that texting
while driving is against
'the law," said Detert, who
,plans to visit a Sarasota
County high school on
Tuesday to point out the
new ban. "I'm not sure how
many of them are going to
pull down a copy of the
Florida statutes."
The Department of High-
way Safety and Motor Ve-
hicles also plans to target
Teenage drivers to remind
them aliout the ban. The
agency is running a public
service announcement in
'69 high schools across the
state on Tuesday and again
on Oct. 15.
The Department of
Transportation plans to
remind drivers about the
ban through its digital bill-
boards' along state high-
ways.
Drivers who text take
their eyes off the road for
almost five seconds, ac-
cordingto the Federal Mo-
tor Carrier Safety Admin-
istration, which regulates
the trucking industry. At
55 mph, a driver can cross


the equivalent of a football
field while not looking.
There were 256,443 re-
ported crashes in Florida
in 2012; In 4,841 of those
crashes, a driver had been
texting or otherwise us-
'ing an "electronic com-
municadion device" while
driving, according to a
preliminary report: from
the Florida Department of
Highway Safety and Motor,
;Vehicles.
T The ban -covers tablet
computers as well as mo-
bile phones, but excludes
using a talk-to-text feature.
It also allow-s testing while
stopped at a red light. A
first violation is a $30 fine
plus court costs. A sec-
ond or subsequent viola-
tion within five years adds
three points to the driver's .
license and carries a $60
fine. ."
Among the other new
laws taking effect Tuesday:
A measure that bans
welfare recipients from
using electronic benefit
transfer or EBT at "adult
entertainment establish-
ments" such as strip clubs
and casinos. EBT cards are
like debit cards. Welfare re-
cipients use them to draw
down their benefits. Crit-
ics called the bill offensive
to poor people. But the
bill's sponsor, Rep. jlim-
Smie Smith, said that voting
against his measure was
like "voting for lap dances
on taxpayer dollars."
A requirement that citi-
zens be given a right to
,speak at meetings of local
government and state ex-
ecutive branch bodies. Re-
publican Sen. Joe Negron
of Stuart filed the bill in re-
sponse to appellate court
rulings. The courts ruled
that Florida's .open-gov-
ernment "sunshine law"
requires officials to meet
in public but does not give
people a right to be heard
on issues at those meet-
ings: The law allows offi-
cials to set reasonable time
limits on speakers.
A "paper reduction" law
that increases the ability of
citizens to get information
electronically. Citizens
wpuld be allowed under
the measure to receive
sample ballots through
email instead of regular
mail. Property apprais-
ers would also be allowed
to send out property tax
notices to people through
email.

S The Associated. Press '
-NEW' ORLEANS BP
lied to the U.S. government
and withheld informa-
tiQn about the amount of
oil spilling into the Gulf of
Mexico after its'well blew
,, out in 2010, attorneys told
, a judge Monday.
But lawyers for the Lon-
don-based oil giant denied
those' accusations and
said there was no way to
prepare for such a unique
blowout'a mile below the
sea floor. Second-guessing
the company's efforts to
cap the well was "Monday
morning quarterbacking
at its worst," BP attorney
Mike Brock said during
opening statements of the
second phase of a trial over
he spill.
This part focuses on BP's
Response lto the disaster
Sand is designed help U.S.
SDistrict Judge .Carl Bar-
bier determine much oil
Spewed into the Gulf.
The government's esti-
.mate is some 70 million
Gallons more than what
BP says spilled. Establish-
ing how much oil leaked
into the Gulf during BP's
Struggle to cap the well will
: help figure out the penal-
Sties the oil company must
pay. Billions of dollars are
at stake.


The first phase of the trial
centered on what caused
the blowout.
Brian Barr, an attorney
Sfor residents and busi-
nesses who claim they.
were hurtby the spill, said
BP failed to prepare for a
blowout and compounded
the problem'by misleading
federal officials;.
BP had a 600-page oil
spill response plan that
only included one page on
"source control." Itsimply
called, for assembling a
team of experts to devise a
way to stop a blowout, Barr
said.
"'BP's plan was nothing
more than a plan to plan,"
he said.
The April 20,2010, blow-
out of BP's Macondo well
50 miles off the Louisiana
coast triggered an explo-
sion that killed 11 workers
on the Deepwater Horizon

Countdown: GOP unity frays as shutdown nears


The Associated Press

WASHINGTON Their unity
fraying, House Republicans bent
but did not blink Monday in
their demand for changes to the
nation's health care overhaul as
the price for preventing the first
partial government shutdown in
17 years.
"We're at the brink," said Sen.
Barbara Mikulski, D-Md., mo-
ments after the Senate voted to
reject the latest GOP attempt to
tie government financing to de-
lays in "Obamacare."'
The stock market dropped on
,fears that political gridlock be-
tween the White House and a tea
party-heavy Republican Party
would prevail, though analysts
suggested significant damage to
the national economy was un-
likely unless a shutdown lasted
more than a few days.
Still, a shutdown would send
hundreds of thousands of work-
ers home and inconvenience
millions of people who rely on
federal services or are drawn to
the nation's parks and other at-
tractions. Some critical parts
of the government from the
military to air traffic controllers
-would remain open.
As lawmakers squabbled,
President Barack Obama urged
House Republicans to abandon
demands he said were designed
to "save face after making some
impossible promises to the
extreme right of their party."
Speaking of the health care law
that undergoes a major expan-
sion on Tuesday, he said em-
phatically, "You can't shut it
down."


Hours before the possible
shutdown, the Senate voted 54-
46 to reject the House-passed
measure that would have kept
the government open but would
have delayed implementation of
the health care law for a year and
permanently repealed a medical
device tax that helps finance it,
House Republicans, reacting
swiftly, decided to try again.
Their new proposal was to allow
the government to remain open,
while imposing a one-year delay
in a requirement in the health
care law for individuals' to
purchase coverage.
That measure also would re-
quire members of Congress and
their aides as well as the admin-
istration's political appointees
to bear the full cost of their own
coverage by barring the govern-
ment from making the custom-
ary employer contribution.
"This is a matter of funding
the government and providing
fairness to the American peo-'
pie," said Speaker John Boeh-
ner. "Why wouldn't members of
Congress vote for it?"
Asked if'a stand-alone spend-
ing bill was possible instead,.
he said, "That's not going to
happen."
Democrats said the House
GOP measure was doomed in
the Senate, and would meet the
same fate as everyother attempt
to delay the law that passed in
2010 and was upheld 'by the
Supreme Court.
SThe impact of a shutdown
would be felt unevenly across
the face of government. ,
Many low-to-moderate-in-
come borrowers and first-time


homebuyers seeking govern-
ment-backed mortgages could
face delays, and Obama said vet-
erans' centers would be closed.
About 800,000 federal work-
ers, many already reeling from
the effect of automatic budget
cuts, would be ordered to report
to work Tuesday for about four
hours -.but only. to carry out
shutdown-related chores such
as changing office voicemail
messages and completing time
cards.
Some critical services such as
patrolling the borders 'and in-
specting meat would continue.
Social Security benefits would
be sent, arid the Medicare and
Medicaid health care programs
for the elderly and poor would.
.continue to pay doctors and
hospitals. .
Ironically, the issue at the core
of the dispute, implementation
of key parts of "Obamacare,"
will begin Tuesday on schedule,
shutdown or no.
Locally, closures of national
parks would hurt hotels, restau-
rants and other tourism-related
businesses, And federal workers
who lost pay would spend less,
hurting the places they shop.
As for .tie fight over "Obam-
acare," some Republicans said
the revised ,House legislation
did not go far enough in seeking
to delay a law that allmembers
of the party oppose'and wantto
see eradicated.
Rep. Phil Giringrey of Georgia
said it felt as if Republicans were
retreating, and Rep. Scott Rigell
of Virginia said there was not
unanimity when the rank and
file met to discuss a next move.


For the first time since the
showdown began more than a
week ago, there Was also pub-
lic dissent from the Republican
strategy that has been carried
out at the insistence of tea par-
ty-aligned lawmakers working
in tandem: with GOP Sen. Ted
Cruz of Texas.
Rep. Charles Dent, R-Pa., said
he was. willing to vote for stand-
alone legislation that would
keep the "government running
and contained no health care-
related provisions. "I would be
supportive of it, and I believe
the votes are there in the House
to pass it at that point," the fifth-
term congressman said.',
SDent added he has been urg-
ingthe Republican leadership to
allow a vote along those lines.
A second Republican, Rep.
Doug Lamborn of Colorado,
said, "We haven't given up on
Obamacare ... but for this week
we may have to give up. We tried
everything and Harry Reid woji't
. budge," he said of the Senate
majority leader. ,
SOther Republicans sought to
blanie Democrats for any shut-
down, but Dent conceded that
Republicans ,would bear the
blame, whether or riot they de-
served it. '
U.S. .troops were shielded
from' ary damage to' their wal-
lets when the Senate,'approved
legislation assuring the military
would be paid.in the in the event
,of a shutdown.
The House passed the bill
early Sunday morning. That had
no impact on those who labor at
other agencies.
"I know some other employ-


ees, if youdon't have money
saved, it's going to be difficult,"
said Thelma Manley, who has
spent seven years as,a staff as-
sistant with the Internal Rev-
enue Service during a 30-year
career in government.
As for herself, she said, "I'm a
Christian, I trust in God whole-
heartedly and my needs will be.
met." She added, "I do have sav-
ings, so I can go to the reserve,
so to speak."
The last time the government
shutdown, in 1996, Republicans
suffered significant political
damage, and then-President Bill
Clinton's political fortunes were
revived in the process.
Now, as then, Republicans
control the House/and senior
lawmakers insist even a shut-
down isn't' likely to threaten
their majority in the 2014 elec-
tions. "We may even gain seats,"
Oregon Re p. GregWalden, who
chairs the party campaign com-
mittee, said recently.
For all the controversy about
other matters, the legislation
in question is .a spending bill
- and there was little if any dis-
agreement about the spending-
related issues. !
- The, House and Senate have.
agreed to fix spending for a wide
swath of federal programs at an
annual level, of $986 billion for
the budget year that begins Oct.
1, the same as for the 12 months
just ending.
Without separate legislation to
make further reductions, across-
the-board cuts would automatic[
cally take effect early next year
that would reduce the level to
$967 billion.


First pre-surgica breast cancer


drug approved by the FDA .:2


The Associated' Press

WASHINGTON-- A bio-
tech drug from Roche has
become the first medicine
approved to treat breast
cancer before surgery, of-
fering an earlier approach
against one 'of the deadli-
est forms of the disease.
The Food and Drug Ad-,
ministration approved
Perjeta for women with a
form of early-stage breast
'cancer who face a high
risk of having their cancer
spread to other parts of
the body.
Surgery to, remove tu-
mors is usually the first
step in treating'most forms
of cancer. Perjeta is the
first drug to be approved
as a pre-surgical step,
Doctors hope that using
cancer drugs earlier could
help shrink tumors, mak-
ing them easier to remove.
In some cases, that could
allow Women to keep their
breasts, rather than hay-'
ing a full mastectomy.
Doctors also say that
treating the disease at its
earliest stages could pre-
vent tumors from return-
ing later, though studies
have not yet established
that benefit. .
"By making effective
therapies available to
high-risk patients in the
earliest disease setting,
we may.delay or prevent
cancer recurrences," said
FDAs Dr. Richard Pazdur,
who directs the agency's
office of cancer products.
Cancer specialists al-
ready use several chemo-
therapy drugs as initial
treatments for cancer, but
they are not formally ap-
proved for the, use.
The FDA originally ap-
proved Perjeta to treat
breast cancer that has
spread to other parts of
the body after surgery.
The FDA granted the
drug accelerated approval
for its new use based on
a study showing women
who received the drug as
an initial treatment were
more likely to be 'cancer-
free 12 weeks later than
women who received old-
er drug combinations.
Accelerated approval
is reserved for drugs that
show groundbreaking
results for treating life-
threatening diseases in
early studies.
As a condition of ap-
proval, Roche's Genentech
lJunit must conduct a larger

treatment drug Perjeta.
follow-up study showing
the drug's long-term ben-
efits for patients. Gener-
ally that means showing
that patients lived longer
or had a higher quality
of life due to taking the
drug. Genentech, based in
South San Francisco, Ca-
lif., has already enrolled
about 4,800 patients' in
the follow-up study, with
results expected in 2016.
SDr. Paula Klein, a breast
cancer specialist, said
she will start prescribing
the drug for early-stage
patients immediately,
but stressed the impor-
tance of follow-up data on
patient survival.
"This does not yet prove
to us that using the anti-
body in this setting will
result in more cures. That
is still a hypothesis," said
Klein, who directs' the
breast cancer program at
Continuum Cancer Cen-
ters of NewYork.'
The FDA said Monday's
approval was based on a
417-woman study com;
'paring Perjeta in differ-
ent combinations against
older breast cancer
treatments.
When Perjeta was com-
bined with Herceptin,
another Genentech drug,
and standard chemother-
apy, 39 percent of women
saw their cancer reach un-
detectable levels.
Only 21 percent of Wom-
en experienced the same
results from takinfig Her-
ceptin and chemotherapy
alone.
After -drug treatment,
all the women received
standard breast' surgery
to remove any cancerous
tumors. Genentech says
this surgery allowed re-
searchers to confirm the
presence or absence of
cancer.
Like Herceptin, Perjeta

only works in a subset of
about 20 percent of breast
cancer patients who have
tumors that overpro-
duce a protein known
as 'HER-2. This protein
causes cancer cells to
divide and grow faster
than usual.
A spokeswoman for Ge-
nentechl said a regimen
of Perjeta plus Herceptin
would :cost between
$27,000 and $49,000, de-
pending on how'long the
patient takes the, combi-
nation. The, new Perjeta
label will recommenrid a
course of treatment be-
tween nine and 18 weeks.
Breast cancer is the sec-
ond most .deadly form of
cancer in U.S. women, be-
hind only lung cancer, and
is expected to kill more
than 39,000 Americans
this year, according to the
,National Cancer Institute.
About 6,000, to 8,000
deaths per year areattrib-
uted to the HER-2 form of
the disease.

From staff report

One truck driver was in-
jured in a two-semi colli-
sion Monday morning in
Jackson County..
According to the Florida
Highway Patrol, the inci-
dent took place at 5 a.m.
on U.S. 231, a mile south
ofWallace Road in Alford.

Pantin, 39, of Jacksonville,

age up-and-comers at the'.
civic center luncheon..
A press release from
the prison put it this
way: "When you think of
.prison, FFA, cheerleaders
:.aand marching bands is not
, what normally comes to
mind, but CCA Graceville
incorporated all of these
in their annual *Commu-
nity Tailgate Luncheon."
The civic center was trahs-
formed into a i football
stadium for the day, high-
lighting Graceville High
School's cheerleaders and
the Marching Tigers band.
The- GHS FFA catered the
event, serving pork loin
plates and greeting guests
as they arrived.
SBedard was introduced
- to the community by
CCA's Learning and Devel-
Sopment manager, Angela
Geisingei, who described
Bedard as a "new source
.of strength" in the prison's
overall mission to rehabil-
itate inmates toward the
goal of si*fcessfully re-en-
tering society.
Bedard said she was
grateful for the oppor-
tunity to meet so many
community 'leaders and
future leaders so soon af-
ter stepping into her- new
role at GCF. She said she
Same away impressed
'with the prison's com-
'munity outreach -and the
community's response to
the overture.
SDuring the .administra-
Stion of former Florida Gov-
Sernor Jeb' Bush, Bedard
served tree years as the,
firstfemale Deputy See-
retaryk of the Florida De-
partment of Corrections.'
Later, after she moved
into the private sector of
corrections work, she got
'the attention of Gov. Rick
Scott. He asked her .to be
his transition team as he
prepared to set his own
goals for corrections and
public safety.
Bedard made a name for
herself nationally in 2006
whensheimplementedthe
state's first-ever "dogs into
prison" program. While
still serving as Deputy Sec-
retary of DOC, she worked
with leadership at Taylor
Correctional Institution in
Perry to begin a pilot pro-
gram that has spread like
wildfire' through the' state's
prison system to include
an estimated 30-40 such
programs around Florida.
GCF has a dog program in
which inmates help train
dogs to eventually become
drug and bomb finders.
Beard's own love of ani-
mals led her to look into

the possibility, she said. "I
had seen some programs
in other states, and I had a
friend who ran an animal
shelter and was facing the
possibility of having to eu-
thapize some animals and
didn't want to have to do
that," Bedard explained.
"I went to Duffy Harrison,
who was warden at Taylor,
and told him I wanted to
try. He said, 'come on', and
it worked well. The dogs
bring a different feel to a
prison," Bedard contin-
ued. "It provides staff an
opportunity to commu-
nicate with the inmates
in ways that we don't
normally have a chance
to do. Instead of just bark-
ing orders, they can have
a conversation about the
dogs and their care. It
brings a calm to the place,
and it teaches the inmates
thing they might not even
be aware they're learn-,
ing; things like parenting,
patience, and the ability
to care about something,
sometimes for the first
time in their lives. The
dogs live with the inmates
and an alternate handler,
so it's like having a kid in
a way. At Graceville, we
have two-story cells, so
the primary handler lives
downstairs with the dog
and the upstairs inmate
is the alternative handler.
That's another way the
dogs help, because those
inmates have to commu-
nicate about the animals
and that helps them build
their interpersonal skills."
Bedard said she's open
to loooJdng at an addi-
tional animal program at
Graceville as she gets her
feet on the ground there.
In some prison dog pro-
grams,, inmates train dogs
to become aids to the
handicapped or in other
skils. Some prisons even
have cat programs meant
to help inmates establish
a caring bond with the'
animals that officials hope
will eventually positively
transform their human
interactions.'
Meanwhile, Bedard, is
re-acclimating herself to
North Florida. Most re-
cently serving as CCA's
warden at Moore Haven
Correctional Facility, a
985-bed facility for men
in South Florida, Bedard'is
originallyfromLeon Coun-
ty and has many friends in
the Marianna area that she
made throughout her cor-
rections career. She knows
Mike Crews, for instance,
the Marianna native who
is the current DOC Secre-
tary. He was in charge of
a Standards and Training
Commission while she was
Deputy Secretary of DOC.
"I feel like I'm home," Be-


dard said of moving back
to this region of the state
and into another commu-
nityofDOC friends.
Bedard said she is happy
working in the privatized
sector of corrections and
has no foreseeable plans
to work directly for the
state again.
, Bedard's interest in cor-
rections goes back to her
days as a student. She re-
ceived her Bachelor of Sci-
ence Degree from thie Uni-
versity of New Hampshire,
a Master's Degree from
Southern New Hampshire
University and a Ph.D.
from Florida State Univer-
sity. According to the press
release from CCA, she has
lectured around the world
and has published more
than 17 articlesand book
chapters related to cor-
rections. She was a Florida
State University professor
for 17 years, from 1989 to
2005, and during that time
ran' an intern program
in the school's College of
Criminology.
During her ensuing di-
rect professional life in
corrections, she was on the
Correctional Privatization
Commission under the Jeb
Bush administration.
The American Crimina
Justice Association recent-
ly recognized Bedard with
the David Fogel Award for
her contributions to the
corrections profession. He

BY DUSTIN KENT

The Sneads junior varsity Pi-
rates football team took its first
victory of the season Thurs-
day night, going on the road to
knock off the Vernon Middle
School Yellowjackets 22-16.
Ledarius Perry rushed for two,
touchdowns for the Pirates and
Larry Hill ran for 96 yards and
another score to lead Sneads to
the win, its first in four tries in
2013.


FU


The Pirates were coming off of
big losses to Blountstown and
Liberty County in consecutive
weeks, but they responded with
a big effort Thursday, jumping
out to a 14-0 lead to start the
game.
Vernon got a touchdown and a
two-point conversion right be-
fore the half to make it 14-8, but
Sneads answered with another
score and two-point play in the
third to go up 22-8.
* TheYellowjackets made it back
into a one-possession game with


a touchdown in the fourth pe-
riod and had one last chance to
tie in the waning seconds with a
drtve inside the Sneads 30-yard
line.
Butapair oflast-second heaves
to the end zone were knocked
down by the Pirates defense and
Sneads was ab1l to finally secure
'that first victory, which resulted
in an outpouring of joy and cel-
ebration on the SHS sideline.
"It was like you would expect.
They were pretty crazy. They
were pretty happy and desery-


edly so," Sneads coach Bruce
Hubbs said, "It's always nice to
win. We made plenty of mis-
takes, but we're improving and
we're glad to have that win under
our belts. We will take it. We're
proud about it and hopefully we
can build on it a little bit."
The Yellowjackets .will get a
chance to redeem themselves
pretty quickly, as the teams will
face off once again Thursday in
Sneads at 6 p.m.

Winston leading undefeated Seminoles


The Associated Press

BOSTON Florida State
quarterback Jameis Winston is
undefeated through the Semi-
noles' first four games, with 12
touchdown passes and an effi-
ciency unmatched in the Atlan-
tic Coast Conference.
Seminoles coach Jimbo Fisher
sees room to'grow.
"He's only four games in,"
Fisher said after Winston threw
for four touchdowns to lead
Florida State to a 48-34 victory
Over Boston College. "We'll wait.
He's got a good grasp of things.
I like the way he's playing. And
there's some things he's got to
get better at.He'll be the first one
to tell you. But he's still making
great reads and great plays. He's
developing very well.".
Winston completed 17 of 27
passes for 330 yards on Satur-
day, rallying the Seminoles (4-0,
2-0 ACC) from a 14-point deficit
in the first half with touchdoWin
passes of 56 and 10 yards. With

Butit the rest of the Seminoles
gave the credit to Winston, who
also ran 14 times for, 67 yards.
He has completed an ACC-lead-

Even Fisher, who was quick to
point out Winston's mistakes,
gaid he was glad he didn't have
to face him.
"Let's say this now: I'm glad
he's on..my team," Fisher said.
"He's a great competitor and a

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. -
Alabama's defense set the
tone on the game's open-
ing series when HaHa
Clinton-Dix upended
Mississippi receiver La-
quon Treadwell inches
short on fourth down.,
"That started the whole
thing," Crimson Tide line-
backer C.J. Mosley said.
The top-ranked Tide

Shutting down No. 24 Mis-

telling everybody, 'Re-
member what they said,
we're trying to play Ala-
bama defense.'" .
Clinton-Dix said Mos-'
ley, who had a fourth-
down stop of his own and
made a tackle for a safety
along with Jeoffrey Pa-
gan, was especially fired
up before the game. That
might have gotten the


defensegoing, if it wasn't
the safety's initial stop to
halt a drive into Alabama
territory.
"He started yelling. I
saw it in his eyes," Clin-
ton-Dix said. "I caught
the chills' just looking at
him. I felt it for him."
Alabama hasn't allowed
a touchdown in the two
games since giving up a'
program-worst 628 yards
to Texas A&M, 'limiting
Colorado State to' two
field goals.
SThe Tide contained
speedy tailback Jeff Scott


,and" allowed Ole Miss
only 46 rushing yards,
while getting two sacks
from Denzel Deirall. De-
vail also forced a fumble
by Wallace with 5:15 left.
"They beat us on some
1-on-ls up front, on runs
that we thought should
have been good," Rebels
coach Hfigh Freeze said.
"When you're not run-
*ning the ball effectively
against great teams, it
makes for a long night. It
makes it very difficult.
"They did a really nice
job of mixing things up,


keeping us off balance
and disguising things. It
seemedlike every time we
thought we had a bead on
them, we missed some-
thing we thought should
have been good and they
had it played perfectly."
Alabama freshman Ed-
. die Jackson appears to
have. settled into the
starting cornerback job
opposite Deion Belue.
Jackson, who didn't play
in the first two games,
has replaced- John Ful-
ton for the past two. He
picked off a pass one play
after getting burned for a
long gain.
Belue said,, Jackson's
emergence has helped
bring the secondary to-
gether since the Texas
A&M game.
"We finally found a
piece to our secondary,
so that we all can come
together and mesh to-
gether and that was a big'
deal in that situation," he
said. "It came out'to be
a big deal when we add-
ed Eddie Jackson to our
secondary/'
The performance came
a week after Alabama
turned in an unimpres-
sive performance against
Colorado State. That
prompted players to
speak up and coach Nick
Saban to hold a series of
meetings with individual


players.
The Tide was limited to
three field goals by Cade
Foster in the first half, but
instead of criticizing, Sa-
ban pointed to lofty stan-
dards having something
to do with perception of
events on the field.
"You can be critical
about kicking three field
goals, can be critical
about a-lot of things, but
if you're critical it's only
because you have expec-
tations f6r something
that this team still needs
to improve," he said. "I
think everybody is com-
mitted to trying to do
that.
"That's what we're go-
ing to be committed
to."

Florida DT Easley turning pro after season


The Associated Press

GAINESVILLE Florida
defensive tackle Domi-
nique Easley, 'who sus-
tained a season-ending
knee injury last week, will
enter the NFL draft.
The 6-foot-2, 285-
pound senior from Staten

and receive another year
of college eligibility. But
coach Will Muschamp
said Monday that Easley
"is definitely going to the
NFL next year."
One of the most dis-
ruptive linemen in the
Southeastern Conference,
Easley tore the anterior
cruciate ligament and
medial meniscus in his

ACL in his left knee in No-

No. 6 Georgia gets through tough opening month


Thd Associated Press

ATHENS, Ga. Give Georgia
San "A" for the opening month of
Sthe season.
The Bulldogs came through
their gauntlet against three Top
10 teams in fine shape, beating
South Carolina and LSU while
moving up to No. 6 in The Associ-
ated Press rankings on Sunday.
But this test is far from over.
"Right this very minute, our re-
sume looks pretty good,", coach
Mark Richt said. "It's not going to
be that pretty if we get whipped in
the next week or two. If October
is a crummy month, then every-
body is going to forget about it."
After Saturday's thrilling 44-41
win over LSU, the schedule' cer-
tainly looks much easier the rest
of the way.
No. 18 Florida is the only ranked
team in the bunch, and the Ga-
tors are hardly in a good place
-; after losing their quarterback to a
Sseason-ending injury. The cumu-
lative.record of the remaining op-
ponents is a very ordinary 21-12,
leaving Georgia in good position
to run the table and claim its third
straight trip to the Southeastern
Conference championship game.
Without a doubt, the Bulldogs
(3-1, 2-0 SEC) are right back in
the thick of the national chamin-.,
pionship race even after opening
the season with a 38-35 loss at
Clemson.
Richt isn't ready to start cel-
ebrating. He knows Georgia still
has plenty of room for improve-
ment, especially on the defen-
sive side, heading into Saturday's

game at Tennessee (3-2, 0-1).
"If we think it's going to be
any easier, ive're crazy," he said.
"They're going to be fired up.
Their fans are going to be ready
to go. If' we think it's going to be
anything less than what we've
been living through, we're nuts.
Every game is going to be abarn-
burner until we get more stout on
defense and continue to get bet-
ter on special .teams."
Georgia did get some good
news on. star running back Todd
Gurley.
He sustained a sprained left


ankle against LSU, watching
the second half wearing a wind-
breaker and a walking boot. But
Richt said the injury is not serious
and listed the sophomore as day
to day.
"He's not going to need any sur-
gery or anything like tha,"',Richt
said. "We've just kind of got to let
it get as much treatment as we
can and get it as healthy as we
can."
It's too early to-tell if Gurley
will be able to play against the
Voluhinteers, but he'll certainly be
limited at practice early in the


week. That means freshmen J.J.
Green and Brendan Douglas will
get some extra time with the first
team alongwith sophomore Keith
Marshall, who'll get the bulk of
the carries if Gurley can't go.
Green had a huge run in his
only carry against LSU, ripping
off an 18-yard gain that set up
Aaron Murray's winning touch-
down pass to Justin Scott-Wesley
with 1:47 remaining. Douglas was.
stuffed on two inside runs near
the goal line when the Bulldogs
.tried to fool the Tigers earlier in
the game.


"Those guys have got to get
their reps and be ready to play,"
Richt said.
The special teams cleaned
up some of their issues against
LSU. Marshall Morgan kicked
three field goals, including a ca-
reer-best 55-yarder. There were
no poor snaps, and the coverage
teams did a good job.
The young defense, on the oth-
er hand, is still very much a work
in progress.
SZach Mettenberger threw for a
career-best 372 yards, continu-
ally burning the Bulldogs for long
completions on third down. The
Tigers converted a staggering 10
of 15 times in those situations, in-
cluding a third-and-22 that led to
JeremyHill'sgo-aheadtouchdown
with just over 4 minutes remain-
ing. Georgia was especially inef-
fective' when they dropped back
in a prevent defense; they were
much more successful when they
got pressure on Mettenberger.,
More encouraging: LSU rushed
for only 77 yards on 36 carries,
though the Tigers were able to. get
outside with more regularity in
the second half.
"We played very well on first
and second down," Richt said.
"We stopped the run extremely
well, or at least slowed it down.
We got ourselves in some really
good situations on third down,
as far as down and distance. We
just didn't get the stops. They
got a lot of their biggest plays on
third down. When we get in those
situations, we've got to get off the
field. We didn't do a good enough
job of that."

SAY NFRMD


The Associated Press

SClemson defensive co-
ordinator Brent Venables
knows what it means
when he sees a complete
: effort on all sides of the
ball like the third-ranked
Tigers displayed against
Wake Forest.
"In my experiences,
when you're like that
you'ree hard to beat when
you complement each
-other," Venables said.
Right now, Clemson
(4-0, 2-0 #Atlantic Coast
Conference) looks awfully
hard to beat.
The Tigers led 21-0 less'
than 8 minutes in, 35-7
at the half and the back-
Sups closed out their fifth
straight win over the De-
'. Mon Deacons. Clemson
; held Wake, Forest to 222
yards, just 80 of that in the

secondhalf.
Clemson coach Dabo
SSwinney said Sunday
-he's grateful for victory
whether it's by a point or
seven touchdowns. Swin-
ney also is happy to have


a game tape where he can
prove to players, :"'Hey,

the coach said.

USCfires Lane Kiffin; Orgeron is interim coach


The Associated Press

LOS ANGELES Lane
Kiffin triumphantly flew
in from Tennessee nearly
four years ago as the un-
likely choice to extend
Southern California's foot-
ball renaissance.
When Kiffin's Trojans
trudged home to that
same, airport early Sun-
day morning after another
loss, athletic director Pat
Haden couldn't wait an-
other minute to end the
divisive coach's tumultu-
ous tenure.
USC fired Kiffin hours af-
ter a 62-41 loss at Arizona
State that dropped the Tro-
jans to 3-2 overall and 0-2
in the Pac-12. The loss was
the seventh in 11 games,
for a powerhouse program
still struggling under the
cumulative effect of.NCAA
sanctions, but unwilling
to accept such a dramatic
decline.
"It's never the perfect
time to do these things,
but I thought it was the
right time," Haden said.
Ed Orgeron will be USC's
interim head coach for
the final eight games of
the season before Haden
chooses a permanent suc-
cessor for one of college
football's highest-profile
jobs. Orgeron, Kiffin's as-
sistant head coach and
top recruiter, is the former
Mississippi head coach.
Haden broke the news
to Kiffin in a 3 a.m. meet-
ing at the Trojans' private
airport terminal, but not

before a 45-minute chat
in which Kiffin tried to
change Haden's mind.
Haden didn't hire Kiffin,
but had been firmly be-
hind the coach in public
until Saturday, when the
Trojans matched the most
points allowed'in school
history.
"He did a lot of things
well under some very dif-
ficult circumstances here',"
said Haden,.who also fired
men's basketball coach
Kevin O'Neill during the
season last January. "No
one could have worked
harder. He did a lot of the
things we asked. Gradu-
ated players, never had
compliance issues ... and
he really worked under
some very difficult NCAA
sanctions, there's no doubt
about it."
Kiffin ran a competent
program despite the loss
of 30 scholarships over a
three-season stretch that


ends in 2015. But even Kif-
fin acknowledged he wasn't
winning enough in the last
two seasons at a school
with USC's pedigree, and
he also created off-the-
field troubles ranging from
ethically questionable tac-
tics to pointless squabbles
with media.
"Lane did negotiate some
of these things remarkably
well," Haden said. "I have
supported Lane with my
heart and soul for 3V2 years
and gave him every oppor-
tunity. He wasn't given a
fair hand in a lot of ways.
I said all along, we graded
on the curve, but we failed
on the curve, too."
The Trojans are off this
week before returning Oct.
10 at the Coliseum against
Arizona, giving Orgeron
time to evaluate what can
be done to salvage the
season with the toughest
matchups on USC's sched-
ule still looming.


from week to week," Swim-
ney continued. "That con-
sistency is what all coach-
es are looking for."
The Tigers will need that
same stepped-up level
of play to continue on
a schedule with several
road bumps. They travel
to Syracuse and its im-
posing Carrier Dome for
the first time this week.
There's a home game with
Boston College on Oct. 12
before consecutive shows
downs with undefeated,
ranked ACC teams No.
8 Florida State' on Oct. 19
and No. 25 Maryland a
week later.
"I do think we've im-
proved from the first
game as a' team," Swinney
said. "When we look back
over the next month, we'd
like to say, 'Hey, we've im-
proved even more.'"

Dear Annie: Why do people make
a big deal out of men who are
crossdressers? ,
I am 43 years old, happily married
and riot gay. I'm a businessman, and I
wear lacy lingerie with breast forms un-
der my suits every day. My beautiful
.wife of 20 years thinks I lookhot in
lingerie. When we go out to fancy res-
taurants, I dress up' as a woman. I'm very
passable, and our four teenage daughters
are OK with it. ,
There are straight women who wear
men's clothing, and I never hear anything
negative about them. ,

Dear Happy: Women who wear


-Bridge

Alexander Smith, a 19th-century Scottish poet, said,
"Everything is sweetened by risk."
Not when you are a declarer! Then, you should aim
to make your contract without risk.
However, declarer usually faces various dangers. In
today's deal, he must work to keep a particular oppo-
nent off the lead.
South cruises into four spades. West, who overcalled
in clubs, leads the diamond king. After East signals
with the jack, how should declarer plan the play?
In the modern style; North responded three spades,
showing a weak hand with four-card spade sup-
port. With a game-invitational hand, North would
have cue-bid three clubs. This is a good idea because
it allows responder to bid both constructively and
obstructively.
Declarer starts with nine top tricks (six spades, two
hearts and one diamond) and hopes to establish dum-
my's heart suit. But he is in danger of losing four tricks:
one heart, one diamond and two clubs. However, he
risks losing those two clubs only if East gains lead.
South must duck at the first trick avoidance play
number one. East's careful play of the diamond jack
indicates that he also has the 10, a potential entry
card.
Then, after taking the second trick with his diamond
ace, declarer draws trumps ending on the board and
leads a low heart to his 10 avoidance play number
two. West wins within his queen, but cannot do better
than cash the club ace to stop an overtrick. .
Note that if South takes the first trick or plays off
three rounds of hearts, East gets on lead to push a club
through South's king.


men s clothing generally do so because
it is more comfortable. Men who wear
women's clothing;, which is decidedly
less comfortable, often do so because
it gives them a sexual thrill or satisfies
some emotional need. (Some women
dress like men for the same reasons.)
The important thing is that yourwifd
and daughters are OK with it. No one
else's opinion matters. :

SDear .Annie: I believe "Native New
Yorker," whose scratchy voice makes
people think he is foreign, missed.:
out on'alot of opportunities to have
fun. His response to questions regarding
his origin should be: "I'm from
Mars. Please take me to your leader."

James: 'I got better... in every aspect'


The Associated Press

MIAMI LeBron James is not
saying much of anything about next
season. The second edition of "The
Decision" is still nine months away,
and the four-time NBA MVP is all
too aware of the already-incessant
buzz about what uniform he will be
wearing a year from now.
He's not'interested in talking
about that.
There's more important matters
to tend to first, he said Monday,
on the eve of the formal start to
his fourth training camp with the
Miami Heat. And in between get-
ting married, taking some time off
and globetrotting about, tending
to business interests this summer,
James offered the following' as-
sessment of his basketball abilities
since he was last seen carrying his
team to a win in Game 7 of the NBA
Finals:
"I gotbetter," James said.' "I'm a
-better basketball player than I was
last year, in every aspect."
Let the new season begin.
With mostly the same faces the
notable changes are the amnesty-
mandated departure of Mike Mill-
er. along with the additions of Greg
Oden, Michael Beasley and Roger
Mason Jr. to vie for spots in an al-
ready-jammed Heat rotation-Mi-
ami gathered as a team for.the first
time Monday, one day before train-
ing camp 'opens in the Bahamas.
And as typically is the case with
the' Heat, there's plenty of story
fodder.
Coach Erik Spoelstra just signed a
contract extension, Dwyane Wade
Sis driven to prove doubters wrong
once again, Ray Alien .and Chris
Andersen came back on deals that
would be considered bargains, Bea-
sley is t-ying to resuscitate a career
that started with so much promise


THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
Miami Heat forward LeBron James gestures as he answers questions at a news
conference in Miami on Monday. ,


in Miami five years ago and an oft-
injured Oden is simply trying to get
his going.
But the one talking point that
will overshadow all others this sea-
son, even with James trying to win
a fifth MVP and the Heat looking
to join the rarefied club of teams
who have reached the Finals in
four consecutive years, is what will
happen next summer. That's when
James, Wade and Chris Bosh all can
opt out, become free agents on July
1 and possibly leave Miami.
"'It'd be different if we had a young
ballclub that pretty much didn't
know how to handle the media
and got suckered into questions,"
James said. "We have a veteran ball-
club that'sheard everything, that's
seen everything and it won't be a
problem. Guys understand where I
stand arid that's all that matters.".
So, as for where he stands...

Heat signs Spoelstra to

multiyear extension


The Associated Press ,
MIAMI Erik Spoels-
trahas been with the Mi-
ami Heat for nearly two
decades, and their rela-
tionship won't be ending
anytime soon. ;
Spoelstra has signed a
multiyear extension to
remain as coach of the
two-time defending NBA
champion Heat, the team
said Sunday afternoon.
The move comes one day
after the Heat announced
Several other front-office
moves, including pro-.
moting Andy Elisburg to
general manager and hir-.
ing Juwan Howard as an
assistant coach.
A person familiar with
the talks between the
sides, speaking on condi-
tion of anonymity earlier
Sunday because the deal
had not been announced,
told The Associated Press
that the Heat has never
had any intention of let-
ting Spoelstra go. He had
one season remaining on
his existing contract,' 'a
deal that the sides agreed
to in 2011.
"I want Spo here for a
long, 'long time,"' Heat
President Pat Riley said
last season.
Spoelstra is 260-134
in his first five seasons
with Miami, going to the
playoffs in each of those


years, the NBA finals in
each of the last three
and winning the title in
2012 and 2013. His re-
sume suggests that he's
already well' on a Hall of
Fame path: Only 12 other
Smen in NBA.history mul-
tiple championships as
a coach, and only seven
others have collected
rings in back-to-back
years.
He's won while helping
LeBron James, Dwyane
Wade and Chris Bosh
not only figure out:ways
to play with one another,
but having each of those
stars change their game
to make everything fit
within the Heat system.
Last season may have
been Spoelstra's best
coaching job.
The Heat rolled through
the regular season, win-
ning 27 straight games at
'one point on the way to a
66-16 record. Then in the
playoffs, Miami had to
rally from a 1-0 second-
round deficit against Chi-
cago and ultimately had
to grind out seven-game
victories over, Indiana in
the Eastern Conference
finals and San Antonio in
the NBA Finals.
"What's overlooked
for him is the man-
agement of the team,"
Wade, told AP last
season..
