GEO Group poised to regain prison contract

B CCA at the helm of Graceville CF for three years, contract expires in January 2014


Management
of the
Graceville
Correctional
Facility is
expected
to be taken
over by the
Geo Group in
January. The
Corrections
Corporation
of America
has operated
the facility
for the last
three years.

dbuckhalter@jcfloridan.com

At the end of January2014, Geo Group
will take over operation of the Gracev-
ille Correctional Facility if the state fol-
lows through on its notice of intent to
award that company the contract.
For the past three years, Corrections
Corporation of America (CCA) has run
the prison, which opened several years
ago as a private facility. Geo GroUp had
been the original operator but lost out
to CCA when its previous contract ap-
proached its term-limited expiration
date, setting in motion 'the state's com-
petitive process.
Steven Owen, Senior Director of


Public Affairs for CCA, issued the fol-
lowing statement regarding the loss of
the contract:
"We are disappointed with the deci-
sion," he stated. "CCA put forward a
very competitive and cost effective pro-
posal to the state that would enable the
dedicated professionals at Graceville
to continue delivering the' safe, secure
operations and quality rehabilitation
and re-entry programming Florida has
come toexpect from CCA over the past
three years. That said, we respect the
state's decision and will work closely
with them and the successful bidder
to ensure a safe, seamless transition of
management at the end of the current
contract, which is set to expire on Janu-


'ary 31, 2014. We will also work closely
with our valued, employees to ensure
that they are provided every opportu-
nity to continue their careers with CCA
at one of our more than 60 facilities na-
tionwide, including four in ,Florida. We
are grateful to the residents, businesses
and officials in Graceville and the great-
er Jackson County area for their strong
support and allowing CCA to be a part
of their community these past three
years.
GEO Group did not return calls seek-
ing details regarding the transition from
its perspective, including information

Long-distance unicyclist rolls into town


An Ohio man is riding his big
unicycle 3,000 miles from San
Diego to St. Augustine in hopes
of raising awareness of the dis-
ease that killed his father back in
the 1990s, and ultimately hoping
to inspire donations for its con-
tinued research.: David White's
father diedat the age of 63 of Lou
Gehrig's disease, also referred to
asALS.
Having reached the age of 58
himself now, White embarked on
his trip in March of this year after.
retiring from a 34-year career as,
a juvenile probation officer. He
has roughly 400 more miles to go
and travels an average of 45 miles
a day right now. His top recorded
speed is 19 miles an hour, but
he usually travels at an average
of around 12 mph. He expects
to reach St. Augustine in a little
more than a week if the weather,
his stamina and his pace all hold
steady.
On Day 52 ot his-. 3,000-mile
journey, David White roiled
through Marianna and headed
to Florida Caverns State Park to
set up camp for the night.

David White is riding his unicycle
from San Diego to St. Augustine
to raise money and awareness for
Lou Gehrig's disease. He arrived in
Jacksop County on Wednesday, Day
52 of his trip. He planned to camp
overnight at Florida Caverns State
Park and possibly explore the park
on Thursday.
He said he expected Thursday
to be a day of rest that might give
him a chance to join his support
team for a walking tour of the
caverns after he clambers out of
the sleep chamber he created in
his truck camper shell. Perching
atop a narrow unicycle seat that
rides on a 36-inch wheel is not

day without a respite, he said.
He generally rests every fifth or
sixth day and takes breaks ev-
ery five to 10 miles each time he
rides. And if he should ever need
to modify or suspend his day's
route because of fatigue or any
other reason, his support team is
a phone call away.
His "team"is a one-woman out-
fit, friend Joan, who volunteered
to drive the truck from point to
point and do some sightseeing
in the communities while 'White
is .riding each day's route. They
communicate by cellphone to
meet:up at the end of each day
unless something happens that
necessitates her meeting him
along the way. Each posts a blog
of the experience; those journals
are almost completely different,
White said, and the two may lat-
er merge them as one resource
for people who follow one or the'
other. /
White's blog can be viewed at

He's had more than a small
share of roadside visits with
people who see him riding and
flag him down to take a picture
and chat. Those opportunities to
share the story ofwhy he's riding,

If new Marianna K-8

is built, what becomes.


of 3 aging schools?


BYANGIECOOK,
acook@icfloridancom

The fate of three schools is
on the mind of many in Mari-
anna and the surrounding
communities.
On Tuesday, the Jackson
County School Board gave Fa-
cilities Director Stuart Wiggins
the go-ahead to advertise for
architecture firms interested
in working on a proposed new
$50 ririllion'K-8 school in Mari-
anna, but there are still many
decisions the board has yet to
make regarding the construc-
tion project that may not break
ground for years. Key among
them is whether to apply for
the next available round of
state funding or hold off arind
plan for associated costs dur-.
ing their next budget cycle.
Regardless of whether the
board moves forward or bides
its' time 'on the "Special Facili-
ties" funding issue, discussions
have already begun on the
matter of what would become
of the aging schools the new
facility is set to replace: Gol-
son and Riverside elementary
schools and Marianna Middle
School.
In a Wednesday phone in-
terview, Wiggins was asked to

Fla. regulators consider Duke nuclear costs


The Associated Press

TALLAHASSEE- De-
spite some critics calling
the proposal a rip-off for
consumers, Florida util-
ity regulators are poised
to 'approve a far-reaching
settlement with one of the
state's largest utility com-
panies over its shuttered
nuclear power plants.
The Florida Power Ser;
vice Commission could
.vote Thursday on the
settlement which calls for
Duke Energy Florida utility
customers to keep paying
for the plants for the next
several years.
The decision follows
nearly a day's worth'of tes-
timony from Duke Energy
officials as well as some
members of the public and
lawyers representing-util-
ity customers. Duke has
nearly 2 million customers
in the Sunshine State..


The proposed settlement
reached in August be-
tween Duke and the state's
' utility consumer advocate
came after the Charlotte,
N.C.-based company
decided to permanently
close its Crystal River nu-
clear plant and abandon'
its plan to build a $24.7 bil--
lion nuclear plant in Levy
County.
Workers cracked a' con-
crete containment build-
ing during an attempt to
upgrade the Crystal River
plant in 2009. Anr attempt
to fix the problem in 2011
resulted in more cracks.
The Levy plant was aban-
doned due to changes in
the energy market and reg-
ulatory hurdles at the state
and federal level.
The settlement would
call for the average utility
'customer to pay-$5.62 a
month starting in January
for the two plants, but it


could go up even more be-
tween 2015 and 2019.
Those supporting the
settlement contend that
it will bring stability to
Duke rates and will al-
low customers to avoid
future costs associated
with the plants. Addition-
ally, if Duke can sell off
some of its parts'for the
plants that money would
be used to lower customer
charges.
John Bumett, associate
general counsel for Duke,
repeatedly called the set-
tlement fair and reason-
able. Charles Rehwinkel
with the states' Office of
Public Counsel said it was
"solidly in the public in-
terest" because it would
end ongoing legal disputes
over the plants.
Those representing util-
ity customers also said the
settlement. was the best
deal that could be reached


considering the controver-
sial 2006 law that allows
utilities to charge cus-
tomers for nuclear power
plants before they start
producing electricity.
Robert Scheffel Wright,
an attorney represent-
ing retailers, said "there
aie truly no winners here"
since Duke Energy share-
holders are also absorbing
part of the cost.
But a small group of
people including Rep.
Dwight Dudley showed
up to protest the proposed
:settlement.
They called the final deal
a "rip-off" and said the
PSC should have least held
a hearing in St. Petersburg
where Duke customers live
to get their opinion on thp
settlement.
"This should be on share-
holders and investors, .not
the 'ratepayers," Dudley"
.said.

Deputies: Thieves


used hoodies to


smuggle snakes

The Associated Press ____________


BRADENTON Some.
brazen thieves walked
into a Bradenton pet store
and left with $8,000 worth
of snakes hidden in their
hoodies.
Manatee County Sher-
iff's deputies are inves-
tigating the Monday af-'
ternoon ,theft at Petland
Bradenton. The suspects
got away with six snakes,
Including a 4-foot, red-
tailed boa constrictor.
Stephen Benriecke, one of
the store's owners, told the
Bradenton Herald surveil-
lance video showed one
suspect'had the hoodie
wrapped around his neck
with the boa constric-
tor inside. Benecke says
they didn't initially report
the crime because' they
thought the snakes had
escaped their habitat,
which didn't have a lock.
He says the video shows
two men removing latch-
es from the snake habitat
while a woman apparent-
ly served as alookout. One
man' then grabbed the
larger snake and wrapped
it in the hoodie. The other
man was seen going back
and forth several times to
get the hatchlings.
Benecke said the habi-
tat wasn't locked because
no one thought someone
would steal the snake.
"It was so brazen of this
man to stick his hand in
to get a snake he didn't
know," Benecke said. "I

something like that."
The other stolen snakes
were ball python hatch.
lings that were about,14-
inches long.
When the thieves ar-
rived at the store, a man-
ager was at the cash
register and a clerk was
showing a puppy to a cus-
tomer. Benecke said that
by the time they noticed
the snakes were gone,
they thought they'd es-,
caped. Benecke said the
thieves had the hoodies
draped over their shoul-
ders when they entered
the store.
"Then they casu-
ally walked out with the
snakes in their hoodies,"
he said. "This will be a
tough case to solve be-
cause one boa looks the
same as another."
Several hatchings went
missing from the store
a few weeks ago. Again,
Benecke thought they'd
escaped.
"Now we're wondering
if it was the same people,"
Benecke said.

The rest of the survivors
%were in good condition and
were taken into custody
aboard a Coast Guard ves-
sel while-authorities inves-
tigated whether they were
part of a human smuggling
operation. It was not im-
mediately clear whether
they would be brought to
the U.S. or sent back to
their home countries.
"Well, obviously, 15 peo-
ple on a boat, transiting
in the middle of the night
with no life jackets is a
very, very unsafe condi-
tion," Caprara said.
Caprara said that au-
thorities were working to
confirm that the people on
the boat were Haitian and
Jamaican.
"That's still a lengthy pro-
cess that involves contact-


ing other countries and
doing some investigatory
research," Caprara said.
The small white recre-
ational boat with its center
console missing was towed
to dry land. It had been
overloaded and lacked life-
jackets; Caprarasaid:
Authorities didn't im-
mediately confirm that
those on the boat that cap-


sized Wednesday were mi-
grants fleeing their home
countries.
However, the circum-
stances made 'it seem
,likely that they were part
of a global phenomenon
of people taking desper-
ate risks to escape poverty
and instability, said David
Abraham, who teaches im-
migration law at the Uni-
versity of Miami School of
Law. In a case earlier this
month, hundreds of mi-
'grants packed into smug-
glers' boats that capsized
on their way from Africa to
Europe.
It should be no sur-
prise to anyone so long as
the disparity between the
poorest place in the West-
ern Hemisphere and the
richest place in the hemi-
sphere is so grave and the
distances covered are con-
sidered worth the risk,"
Abraham said,

Gov. Scott: Will push

formore port funding


The Associated Press

K ORLANDO Florida
SGov. Rick Scott is going to
' push for nearly $35 million
; to make improvements to
': three ports.
": Scott on Wednesday is
' expected to announce his
support for the port fund-
ing at the American Asso-
ciation of Port Authority's
annual convention.
The governor will include
the funding recommenda-
tion in the budget propos-
als he will give to state leg-
Sislators early next year.


Scott wants the money
for projects at Port Canav-
eral, Port Everglades arid
the Port of Tampa.
Since coming into office
Scott has been consistent-
ly pushed for additional
money for the state's ports.
This year's state budget has
more than $275 million
spent directly on seaport
projects.
State transportation of-
ficials contend that the in-
creased spending will help
the state prepare for the
expansion of the Panama
Canal in 2015.

Congress votes


to end shutdown,




avoid U.S. default


* WASHINGTON Up
against a deadline, Con-
gress passed and sent a
waiting President Barack
Obama legislation late
Wednesday night to avoid
a threatened national de-
fault and end the 16-day
partial government shut-
down, the culmination pf
an epic political drama
that placed the U.S. econ-
omy at risk.
SThe-Senate voted first, a
bipartisan 81-18 at mide-.
vening. That cleared the
wayforafinal 285-144 vote
in the Republican-con-
trolled House about two
hours later, on the legisla-
tion, which hewed strictly
to the terms Obama laid
down when the twin crises
erupted more than three
weeks ago. '*
The legislation would
permit 'the Treasury to
borrow normally through
Feb. 7 or perhaps a month
longer, and fund the gov-
ernment through Jan. 15.
More, than 2 million fed-
eral workers would be paid
-those who hadremained
on the job and those who
had been furloughed. ,
At the White House,
Obama hailed the Senate's
vote and encouraged the
House to' follow suit. Once
the measure reaches his
desk, he said, "I will sign
it immediately. We'll begin
reopening our government
immediately -and we can

begin to lift this cloud of
uncertainty from our busi-
nesses and the American
people."
As debate began in the
House, Rep. Harold Rogers,
R-Ky., said, "After two long
weeks; it is time to end this
government shutdown.
It's time to take the threat
of default off the table., It's
time to restore some sanity
to this place."
The stock market surged
higher at the prospect of
an end to the crisis that
also had threatened to
shake confidence in the
U.S. economy overseas.
Republicans conceded,
defeat after a long struggle.
"We fought the good fight.
We just' didn't win," con-
ceded House Speaker John
Boehner as lawmakers
lined up to vote on a bill
that includes nothing fOr


GOP lawmakers who had
demand to eradicated, or
scale back Obama's signa-
ture health care overhaul.
"The compromise we
reached will provide our
economy with the stability
it desperately needs," said
Senate Majority Leader'
Harry Reid, declaring that
the nation "came to the
brink of disaster" before
sealing an agreement.
Senate Republican lead-
er Mitch McConnell, who
negotiated the deal with
Reid, emphasized that
it preserved a round of
spending cuts negotiated
two years ago with Obama
and Democrats. As a re-
sult, he said, "government
spending has declined for
two years in a row" for the
'first time since the Korean
War. "And we're not going
back on this agreement,"


he added.
Only a temporary truce,
the measure set a time
frame of early next winter
for the next likely clash be-
tween Obama and the Re-
publicans over spending
and borrowing. ,
But for now, government
was lurching back to life. In
one example, officials met
to discuss plans fot gear-
ing back up at the Depart-
ment of Housing and Ur-
ban Development, where
307 employees remained
at work during the partial
shutdown and more than
8,000 were furloughed.
After weeks of gridlock,
the measure had support
from the White House,
most if not all Democrats
in Congress and many
Republicans fearful of
the economic impact of a
default.


LAX Explosions


Police: Worker set off bombs as prank


:The Associated Press

LOS ANGELES- A bag-
gage handler arrested after
dry ice bombs exploded at
Los Angeles International
Airport planted the devic-
es as a prank, police said
Wednesday.
The motive was dis-
closed a day after the ar-
rest of Dicarlo Bennett, a
28-year-old employee for
the ground handling com-
pany Servisair.
"I think we can safely say
he is not a terrorist or an
organized crime boss. He
did this for his own amuse-
ment," said Los Angeles
police Deputy Chief Mi-
chael Downing, who heads
the department's counter-
terrorism and special op-
erations bureau.
No one was hurt on
Sunday when two plastic
bottles packed with dry ice
exploded in an employ-
ee bathroom and on the
airport's tarmac. An unex-
ploded device was found
Monday night ,

dent, airport officials plan

hancements at one of the

The meeting also will
explore the handling and
transport of dry ice and
other hazardous mate-
rials and possible im-
provements to those
procedures.
Arif Alikhan, deputy ex-
'ecutive director for Home-
land Security and Law En-

"We'll look at all layers of
security existing at the air-
port, including technolo-
gy, physical infrastructure,
the partnership of tenants,
awareness of employees to
potential hazardous items
like dry ice," Alikhan said.
Workers at; the airport
must pass a criminal back-
ground check before they
can get a security badge for
access to restricted areas,
LAX spokeswoman Nancy
Castles said.
On Tuesday, police ar-
rested Bennett, who was
booked for possessionri of a
destructive deice near an


aircraft and held on $1 mil-
lion bail.
It was not immediately
clear whether Bennett had
a lawyer. A message left on
a phone number listed at
an addressfor Bennett was
not returned.
Despite the arrest, trav-
elers saw stepped-up se-
curity patrols at all termi-
nals as well as the airfield,
Los Angeles Airport Police
spokeswoman 'Belinda
Nettles said.
Dry ice is routinely'used
by aircraft catering com-
panies aqd restaurants to
keep perishable food safe.
Bennett took dryice from
a plane and placed a load-
ed bottle in an employee
bathroom, according to a
law enforcement official
briefed on the investiga-
tion who wasn't authorized
to speakpublicly and asked
to remain anonymous.
The commotion caused
by. the explosion delayed
several flights. Remnants
of another device were
found the same night on
a tarmac outside the main
international terminal..

Legionnaires'


illnesses seen in


Ala. nursing home


The Associated Press
ATLANTA An out.
break of Legionnaires'
disease appears to be
centered at a northwest
Alabama nursing home.
However, the source
of the outbreak is still
under investigation, a
state health official said
Wednesday.
Eleven lab-confirmed
cases have been seen in
the Florence area since
the outbreakwas detected
,this month. Another eight
pneumonia illnesses are
being investigated as pos-
sibly also Legionnaires'.
No one has died, but two
people were hospitalized,
said Dr. Karen Landers of
the Alabama Department
of Public Health.
Legionnaires' disease
is a bacterial infection
that can cause deadly
pneumonia. It does not
spread from person to
person. Instead, people
get it from inhaling con-
taminated mist or vapor.
Tainted shower water, air
conditioning systems or
whirlpool spas are among
the ways bacteria get in


the air.
It's often treated with,,
drugs used against-,
pneumonia.
At least eight of the in-,'
fected people have been:
living at a Florence nurs-,
ing home, but it's not clear
the home was where they,
were infected. Environ--,
mental testing results are.
pending, said Landers,,'
an assistant state healthJ
officer. 'I
Landers declined to
name the nursing home-'
while the investigation is
underway.
The disease got its name '
from an outbreak at a
Philadelphia convention
of the American Legion in..
.1976 whenmore than 200.
people were sickened and
34 died. Health investiga-'-
tors ultimately fingered'
a bacteria they called
Legionella, which appar-
ently had spread through
the convention hotel's air
conditioning system.
Legionnaires' is con-
sidered uncommon. But
experts believe it's un-
derreported and prob-
ably sickens thousands
annually.


Alabama looking to

tighten abortion rules


The Associated Press
BIRMINGHAM State
health officials said
Wednesday they are pro-
posing new rules that
would reduce the num-
ber of abortions a doctor
can perform before the
practice would have to be
regulated as an abortion
clinic.
While rules now define
an abortion clinic as any
facility that performs 30
or more abortions during
any two months in a year,
the proposed regulation
would define it as any
place that' performs '10
or more abortions in any
single month and 100 or
more in a year.
An attorney for the
Alabama Department of
Public Health, Brian Hale,
said the proposal will
be considered during a
public hearing set for Oct.
24.


Hale said the new rule is
partly in response to the
state's legal fight to shut
down what, a judge ruled
was a doctor operating an
illegal abortion clinic in
Birmingham.
The Rev. Terry Gense-
mer, director of Charis-
matic Episcopal Church
for Life, called the pro-
posed change a step in
the right direction.
"I'd like to see the num--
ber even lower," -said
Gensemer.
The proposed rule,-'
which the department'
can implement without
legislative action, follows.,
a court case in which a *
SJefferson County judge'
ordered the shutdown of<'
what he ruled was an il-,'
legal abortion clinic run
by Dr. Bruce Norman in'
Birmingham in a building'
owned by longtime abor-
tion clinic operator Diane
Derzis. .

Arlington Cemetery will



allow small mementos,


S The Associated Press

ARLINGTON, Va. -' Arlington
National Cemetery is relaxing its
policies to allow family members
of those buried in its section for
those who died in Iraq and MAf-
ghanistan. to leave behind. small
mementos and photos to honor
those soldiers, a spokeswoman said
Wednesday.
Section 60 is the part of the cem-
etery that is home to most of those
killed in recent fighting.
Families in that section had
been leaving stones, photos, and
other mementos at their loved
ones' ,ravesites, even though cem-
etery policy strictly regulates such
impromptu memorials.
Responding to complaints,
cemetery staff cleaned out some
of those memorials recently.
Then families who had left the me-
mentos complained about their
removal.
Patrick Hallinan is the execu-
tive director of the Army National
Military Cemeteries and Arlington
National Cemetery. He met with
Section 60 families on Oct. 6, and
worked out a compromise that
will allow displays through the fall
andwinter months when the grass

tant to the idea of chipping
in additional tax dollars
for a new school facility,
Wiggins thinks it's worth
"chasing this money."
He thinks a brand new
$50 million facility in ex-
change for the district's
$8.3 million investment is
the best hope for at least
three Jackson County
schools.


Unicycle
From Page 7A v *
dollars to ALS research.
He said he's enjoyed
those encounters'and the
unique way he's been able
to tour the country. He
learned how to unicycle at
10-years-old at a small pa-
rochial school, where one
buddy's unicycle acquisi-
tion turned into a big fad
at the little school. A par-
ish priest bought several
unicycles so that the chil-
dren who wanted to could
learn how to ride. Several
of them, including White,
actually rode their cycles in
the famous Macy's Thanks-


giving Day Parade and oth-
er such events through the
years,
He's had very few un-
pleasant encounters with
motorists, he said. If he
gets a response, he said, it's
usually a friendly toot-toot
of the horn as the driver
passes by. Most drivers po-
litely share the road, and he
has rarely had to deal with
an. irate driver; those are
easy to distinguish from
the others, he said: They've
usually pulled alongside
and blasted their horns in
an unmistakably frustrated
way.
Other than those few un-
pleasant moments, White


says his trip has been a
remarkably happy one.
An unseasonably hot spell
at the .start of his ride was
counterbalanced by un-
seasonably cool weather
along the way. He's been
able to pull the tall climbs
with relative, ease, he said,
including an 8,000-ft.
.climb from the ocean into
the foothills of a mountain,
and he traveled a 6,300 el-
evation at the Continental
Divide.
His worst challenge came
early on the trek, and was
actually a problem that be-
gan before he started his
trip. While visiting Costa
Rica, a parasite attached


itself to White's leg. As the
cyclist began his ride, the
parasite came along, un-
beknownst to White at the
time. He had to seek medi-
cal attention when the pest
started eating a hole in his
leg, he said. He 'reached
that critical point in May,
in Mississippi, and had to
stop riding for a 21-day in-
travenous treatment to get
rid of the unwanted hitch-
hiker and heal his body.
He said'that he's building
back up to his former 50-
mile per day pace, having
had to drop back down to
about half that for a time as'
his' body recovered and he
got back in shape.


Whitu's ride is following
one of the paths offered
by the 'Adventure' Cycling
organization. It's the short-
, est cross-country route of-
fered b, he group, which
prepares maps and pro-
vides cyclists information
about points of interests,
supply stations 'and other
things they need or might
want to know.
He said he's glad he de-
cided to go. "It's been a
pretty interesting, way to
see the country," he said.
'A big part of' that is be-
'cause of the people I've
met along.the way. It's fun
to talk to people who get a
kick out of the unicycle, or


to run into bicyclists who
are making the trip.
Why did he choose, to
ride a unicycle rather than
a two-wheeler? There are
a couple of main reasons.
First, he knew; his cycle
is an unusual sight that
might cause people to seek
him out; he was right. Do-
ing so has given him op-
portunities to mix talk
about his cause in with the
unicycle chatter. And the
second reason goes back
to those old days when he
was learning to ride along-
side his chums in parochial
school. "I never really grew
up," he said in explaining
his second reason.

Typhoon, mudslides kill


17 in Japan; 50 missing


The Associated Press

TOKYO A typhoon
caused deadly mudslides
that buried people and
destroyed homes on a
Japanese island Wednes-
day before sweeping up
the Pacific coast, ground-
ing hundreds of flights and
disrupting Tokyo's trans-
portation duringthe morn-
ing rush. At least 17 deaths
were reported and nearly
50 people were missing.
Hardest hit from Ty-
phoon Wipha was Izu
Oshinma island, which is
about 120 kilometers (75
miles) south of Tokyo.
Rescuers found 16 bodies,
most of them buried by
mudslides, police and
town officials said. Dozens
of hondes were destroyed,
and about 45 people were
missing.
A woman from Tokyo
died after falling into a
river and being washed 10
kilometers (6 miles) do'n-
river to Yokohama, police
Said. TWo sixth-grade boys
and another person were
missing on Japan's main
island, Honshu, the Fire
and Disaster Management
Agency said. '
More than 350 homes
were damaged or .de-
stroyed, including 283 on
Izu Oshima, it said.
The typhoon, which
stayed offshore in the Pa-
cific, had sustained winds
of 126 kilometers per hour
(78 miles' per hour), with
gusts up to 180 kph (110
mph), beforeit was down-
graded to a tropical storm
Wednesday evening. The
storm was moving north-
east, off the northern Japa-
nese island of Hokkaido.
More than 80 centime-
ters (30 inches) of rain fell



49 believed

dead after

plane crash

inLaos

The Associated Press

BANGKOK A plane
from Laos' state-run airline
crashed in bad weather, in
the Southeast Asian na-
tion, apparently killing 49
people from 11 countries,
the government said.
The Lao government said
it was dispatching rescuers
to the scene of Wednes-
day's crash, but the Aus-
tralian government said it
was told no'survivors Were
expected.
The Ministry of Pub-
lic Works and Transport,
which operates Lao Air-
lines, said 44 passengers
and five crew members
were on Flight QV301 from
the capital, Vientiane,
to Pakse in the country's
south. Earlier reports had
39 passengers.
"Upon preparing to land
at PaIkse Airport the air-
craft ran into extreme bad
weather conditions and
was reportedly crashed
into the Mekong River,"
the ministry said in a
statement.
The airline flies an ATR
72-600 twin-engine turbo-
prop plane on the 467-k1-
lometer (290-mile) route.
French maker ATR said
the plane that crashed had
been delivered in March.
The aircraft is configured
with 68-74 seats, it said.
Thai Foreign /Ministry
spokesman Sek Wanna-
methee said his country's
embassy in Vientiane was
informed that the plane
crashed 7-8 kilometers (4-
5 miles) from the airport at
Pakse.


A passenger rmanifest
faxed by the airline listed
44 people: 17 Lao, seven
French, five Australians,
five Thais, three Koreans;,
two Vietnamese and one
person each from Canada,
China, Malaysia, Taiwan
Jand the United States.

Oshima island, about 120 kilometers (75 miles) south of Tokyo
Wednesday morning, Oct. 16,2013.


on Izu Oshima during a
24-hour period ending
Wednesday morning, the
most since record-keeping
began in 1991.
The rainfall was particu-
larly heavy before dawn,
the kind in which "you
can't see anything or hear
anything," Japan Meteo-
rological Agency official
YoshiakiYano said.
Izu Oshima is the larg-
est island in the Izu chain
southwest of Tokyo. It has
one of Japan's most active
volcanoes, Mount Mihara,
and is a major base for
growing camellias. About
8,200 people live on the
island, which is accessible
by ferry from Tokyo.
Yutaka Sagara, a 59-year-
old sushi chef on the east
coast of the island, said
he spent a sleepless night
with colleagues at their
company housing. Their
hillside apartment barely
escaped a mudslide that
veered offto the side. Later
he found out the mudslide
crushed several houses as
it flowed to the sea.
"People on this island
are somewhat used to
heavy rainstorms, but this
typhoon was beyond our
imagination," he said by
phone.


Sagara came down to his
seaside, sushi :restaurant
on foot, wading through
knee-deep mud, to check
things out and make sushi
for rescue workers.
Prime ,Minister Shinzo
Abe, speaking'to Parlia-
ment on Wednesday,
vowed to do the utmost
to rescue the missing and
support the survivors,
while trying to restore in-
frastfruicture and public
services as quickly as pos-
sible. Japanese troops were
deployed to the island, as
well as Tokyo's "hyper-res-
cue" police with rescue
dogs. ,
As a precaution, the Fu-
kushima Dai-ichi nuclear
power plant, crippled by
the 2011 earthquake and
tsunami, released tons of
rainwater that were be-
ing held behind protective
barriers around storage
tanks for radioactive wa-
ter. Tokyo Electric Power
Co., the plant's operator,
said only water below an
allowable level of radioac-
tivity was released, which
Japan's Nuclear Regulation
Authority allowed Tuesday.
During an earlier typhoon
in September, rainwater
spilled out before it could
be tested.

The Sneads pirates earned

Sneads (2-3 overall, 1-1 in

after facing a possible 0-2

But if Sneads is going to make

a struggling Wewahitchka (2-5,

elimination from the playoff
race with a loss.
"What I've tried to stress
to the guys is that we cannot
win the district this week, but...
we can lose the district this
week if we don't play well,', Pi- '

Wednesday. "If we don't follow

ACC happy in the spotlight


The Associated Press

CLEMSON, S.C. This(
is a big week for Atlantic
Coast Conference foot-
ball and league members
from top to bottom hope
to benefit.
The league that's taken
its share ,of shots for shod-
dy football has three unde-
feated top-10 team teams

Miami (6-0) plays at North
Carolina on national tele-
vision Thursday night; No.
5.Florida State (5-0)' is at
No. 3 Clemson (6-0) in Sat-
' urday night's primne-time
matchup.
The ACC hasn't had
three' programs ranked' in
the top-10 since October
2005. Throw in No. 19 Vir-
ginia Tech and it's the third
straight week four ACC
teams are in the Top 25.
The benefits for those
schools are. obvious.

"It's not any good for
anything if we don't all
take advantage of it," Duke:
coacli David Cutcliffe said.
"When the frying pan, is
hot, that's when you fry
'em up, right?"


There's plenty of sizzle in
the ACC right now-- and
lots of schopls that want to
get m on the action.
North Carolina coach
Larry Fedora's Tar Heels
were expected to contend
for the ACC's Coastal
Division, yet they have
struggled and stand 1-4
with Miami rolling into
town to kick off college
football's weekend. Fedo-
ra said he'll latch onto the
positive, talk surrounding
the weekend's match-
ups and make sure his
recruiting targets know
what's possible should
they sign on.
"We've got so much to
,sell,' all of that positive
buzz around the ACC only
adds to what we have to of-
fer," Fedorasaid.
SThe Florida State-Clem-
son contesgt-is the ACC's
first, top-five showdown
since No. 5 Miami de-
feated No.. 3 Yvirginia Tech
27-7 in 2005. That was just


a year after those football
powers joined the league
and seemed to point to
a strong future of similar
top-ranked contests.
Instead, the ACC has
had just two games where
league opponents were
each ranked in the top
10 No. 2- Boston Col-
lege'beating No. 8 Virginia
Tech 14-10 in 2007, and
No. 4 Florida State topping
No. 10 Clemson 49-37 last
year.
Clemson. coach Dabo
Swinney said the buzz has
been a long time com-
ing. He said it's taken a lot
of. hard work anid forced
ACC. coaches and fans. to
develop ultra-thick skin
to withstand the shots at'
the league 'by supporters
of other leagues like the
Southeastern Conference.
"Well, this is what they've
been wanting, isn't it?"
Swinney said of the critics.
"They can't talk bad about
us now."


SEC newcomers holding their own


The Associated Press

BATON ROUGE, La. It
looks like bigger does mean
better in the competitive
Southeastern Conference
not just in terms of tele-
-vision ratings, but on the
field as well.
When Texas A&M and
Missouri began SEC play a
Season ago, fewdoubted the
addition of the two schools
would bring more televi-'
sion viewers to the league's
games from Texas and Mid-
west. Still, there were ques-
tions about whether add-
ing.a pair of Big 12 teams
would dilute the quality on
the field in the mighty SEC,
winner of seven straight
football national titles.
Apparently not.
Just last weekend, the Ag-
gies and their Heisman Tro-
phy-winning quarterback,
Johnny Manziel, pulled
out a thriller at Mississippi,
while unbeaten' Missouri
did what No. 6 LSU could
not: upended Georgia hi
Athens. Halfway through
the 2013 season, the Aggies
and the newest Tigers to

join' the SEC have one loss,
between them: A&M's one-
score loss to No. 1 and two-
time defending national
champion Alabama.
"It made our league bet-
ter," Alabama coach Nick
Saban said when asked
about the results of expan-
sion on the field.
Some of those who rep-
resent the SEC's traditional
powers have been. a *bit
surprised by the quick as-


cension of the newcomers
in the league standings.
"I'm shocked, but then
again, I'm not," Tennessee
running back Rajion Neal
said. "Those' have been
some pretty good teams. I
can remember times where
- Texas A&M were making
their strides and I can re-
member Missouri was in
the top 10."
Others saw it coming..
"It doesn't shock me ,at


all," said Florida coach
Will Muschamp, who was
familiar with both former
Big 12 #programs from his
time as defensive coordi-
nator at Texas. :
South Carolina's Steve
Spurrier said he always
thought Missouri and Tex-
as A&M had "outstanding
traditions at their places."
SSpurrier said he had no
doubt Missouri now has its
"sights on playing for the
(conference) champion-
ship in Atlanta," and that
the Aggies' Manziel is "'the
toast'df the league."
, The promise of greater TV
ratings seems to be play-
ing out as predicted. A few
weeks ago, CBS announced
its broadcast ,of No. 1 Ala-
bama at then-No. 6"Texas
A&M earned the highest rat-
ings for a CBS regular ,sea-
son college football game in
23 years. OnWednesday, the
network announced that its
Saturday, SEC broadcasts
are averaging 7.3 million
viewers, the most at this
point of a season since CBS
began featuring SEC games
in 2001.


Unbeaten Miami


brings 'bunker


mentality' to UNC


The Associated Press

Al Golden isn't getting
caught up in Miami's first
*top-it) ranking in four
years.
One bad game, and
it could vanish in an
instant.
.The 10th-ranked Hur-
ricanes (5-0, 1-0 ACC) de-
but their highest ranking
since 2009 on Thursday
night in Chapel Hill, N.C.,
when they visit a North
Carolina team that has
floundered in Larry Fedo-
ra's second season.
The Hurricanes are one
of'three unbeatens in the
ACC. No other conference
has more than two and
the 'Canes are trying for
their first 6-0 start since
the 2004 team also won-its
first six games in its first
year in the conference.
"We're 0-0 going into
this game," Golden said.
"The rest of it doesn't really
matter. It's all about North
Carolina right now, and we
have to continue to have
that bunker mentality for
the rest of the year."
This matchup just the
second Thursday night
game in Kenan Stadium
history was supposed
to be a matchup of -two
emergingteams and Coast-
al Division contenders.
SBut so far, only the Hur-


ricanes have held up their.
end of the bargain.
"We know they're com-
ing in as a top-10 team'
and they're going to have
a lot of firepower offen-
sively and defensively,"
North Carolina, quarter-'
back Bryn Renner said. '
Miami ranks among the,
ACC's top four in seven,
of the eight major team
statistical categories. The'
Hurricanes arethe tough-'
est team in the league to,
pass against allowing
an average of only 142,
yards through the air, and;
Giving up just two passing
touchdowns this season. '
That's a bad matchup
for a slumping North Car-
olina team that has the
ACC's worst grounrid game
and relies heavily on the
pass.
The Tar Heels (1-4, -0-
2) expect to have Renner
back after a foot injury kept

Georgia's focus on


forcing? turnovers


The Associated Press.

ATHENS, Ga. Ama-
rio Herrera believes that
Georgia's defense- isn't
nearly as: bad as its num-
bers suggest.
Problem is the near
meltdowns that occurred
in narrow wins over LSU
and Tennessee finally
brought the Bulldogs
down in last week's home
loss to Missouri.
"It's been bad," Herrera
said on Tuesday. "We want
to win. We play defense
so we don't like giving up
points. We've just to work
on that."
WhentheNo. 15 Bulldogs
(4-2, 3- t SEC) visitVander-
bilt (3-3, 0'3) on Saturday,
coach Mark Richt hopes
they can finally begin to
build some momentum.
And the best way to do
that is creating turnovers,
a problem that's haunted
Georgia all season;
The defense has just
one interception thisyear,
by safety Tray Matthews
.against North Texas. And
ofthe'Bulldogs' four fum-
ble recoveries, two came
on special teams.
Georgia ranks 117th .in
takeaways,105th in scor-
ing and 97th in third-
down efficiency, but Richt
believes the defense is
still evolving after losing
nine players to the NFL
during the offseason.
Of the 10 true freshmen
who have played defense


this year, seven have start-
ed. The Bulldogs also have
u used six veteran first-time.
starters on defense.
"We can'tlose anykind of
hope or faith, and there's
-enough progress going on
that I still feel very com-
fortable that we're moving
in the right direction with
a o16 Of pups," Richt said.
"There are a lot of good
things happening."
The abundant youth has
likely affected how many
halftime adjustments de-
fensive coordinator Todd
Grantham can make.
In beating No. 6 South
Carolina in the second
game, Georgia allowed 24
points in the first half but
just six in the final two
quarters, butthat'sthebest

Wallace wants Dolphins to run


The Associated Press

DAVIE, Fla. Here's ar
interesting change of pace
A star receiver wants his
team to throw less, rur
more.
And Miami's MikeWallace
is willing to do whatever it
takes to make that happen.
SThe Dolphins are one ol
only five NFL clubs who are
throwing at least two passes
for every running play sc
far this season, and those
teams have a combined
8-19 record. Overly pass-
happy football doesn't tend
to work out well, and even
though Wallace doesn't
mindhaving the ballthrown
his way often, he knows
that Miami needs to get its
ground game going.
"Very crucial. We have
to be able to run the foot-
ball to win games," Wal-
lace said. "We're not going
to win being one-dimen-
sional, throwing the ball



Pirates
.FromPage lB
"It's like i've told the guys,
we're good enough to beat
anybody and bad enough
to lose to anybody. We've
got to stay focused and
,earn everything we get!"
The Pirates come in after
giving perhaps their two
'best performances of the
season in their two most
recent games: the win over
Graceville and a 31-21 loss
to West Gadsden that fol-
lowed their lone district
defeat against Cottondale
on Sept: 20.
Sneads put up 376 yards
of total offense in the win
over Graceville, rallying
from a 23-14 halftime defi-
cit by controlling the ball
* for nearly 19 of 24 minutes
of the second half. '

the 200-yard mark'with 28

Bullpups
From Page 1B
Graceville had great suc-
Scess against Marianna last
season with a hybrid ju-
Snior varsity/middle school
team made up of seventh-
through-ninth graders,
'beating the Bullpups 34-14
in Graceville and winning
a second time in Marianna
14-6.
The Tigers arenowa more
traditional sixth-through-
eighth middle school team,
but they return several
players from that group
and the Bullpups also have
players who took part in
those matchups.

The Dolphins rank 31st out of 32 NFL teams in carries per
game, and 29th in rushing yards per game.


all day. You have to be able
to run the football. Every-
bodyknows we have to run
the ball, so I know from my
standpoint I'm going to
block me a safety or two,
try, to block a cornerback
or two, maybe even get a
(weakside) linebacker ev-.
ery now and then."


fourth quarter.
The Pirates are averaging
over 300 yards of total of-
fense per game 'and have
scored at least 20 points in
all five contests this season.'
" But. it's 'the defensive
performance that could
be most critical for Sneads
on Friday against a unique
Gators attack that employs
the Single Wing -and em-
ploys lots ,of misdirection
and trickery in its offense.
"Honesdv. we.don't do
much live work (in prac-.
tice), but this week we
had to go live to get a feel
for what (the Gators) do
because you don't see it
every day," Thomas said.
"Our defense had to see
that offense run live. For-
tunately, we got to bring
some (junior varsity) kids
up to run it so we could see
it live this week and that
has helped us."
Wewahitchka is led by
dynamic dual-threat quar-
terback Rashard Ranie,
who along with 6-foot-2,
245-pound'senior fullback
Javar Hill gives the Gators
a talented 1-2 punch on
offense.


Cross said that for those
MMS players who were on,
the field and even those
who watched from the
Sidelines, getting a win t6-
t. :night would mean some-
- thing extra after last year's
I losses.
"It's a big motivation for
our eighth graders. A lot of
I them were in the game or
x on the sideline," he' said.
i "(Eighth grade fullback/
middle linebacker Deontre
Rhynes) especially felt re-
Sally bad about those loss-
es. He was a big part of that
I team and definitely wants
Sa little .,bit of redemption.
Even our guys who were

those games want redemp-


SHow much Wallace will
be used as a blocker this
weekend won't be known
until Sunday, of course,
when Miami (3-2) plays
host to Buffalo (2-4) in
a matchup of teams on
two-game losing streaks.
,It's also the first AFC East
game of the season for the


Hill is a big, physical run-
ner between the tackles,
but it's the speedy and
elusive junior Ranie who
Thomas said he is most
concerned about and not
just on the offensive side
of the ball.
"(Ranie) is one of the
best athletes in 1A foot-
ball," the coach said, "I
actually think he's a better
free safety than, an offen-
sive player. Don't get me
wrong, he's good at both,
but he could play for any
size school at free safety.
(At quarterback), you can
do everything right against
.him and still be wrong. He
can scramble around and
make big plays with his
feet."
Despite those two play-
makers, the Gators have
struggled most of the sea-
son, losing the first four
games of the season before
bouncing back with victo-
ries over Franklin County
and North Bay Haven be-
fore falling to Maclay 40-12
last week.
Wewahitchka's two dis-
trict losses have come to
Cottondale and Graceville,


tion. We don't like losing
over here and when we do
we like to get our revenge
when we can."
If the Bullpups do get the
payback they desperately
want, they'll have to do
so without two of the best
playmakers in running
backs 'Werlean Pollock
and Curtis Screen, both of
whom are sitting out after
suffering concussions.
Jakil Snowden will step
in at running back to help
fill the void, while quar-:
terback Marqtis Kelly will
also move around to run-
ning back .and receiver

him at QB.

Dolphins, who are com-
ing off a bye and currently
sit 1Y2 games behind New
England in the division.
In Miami's last game
against Baltimore on Oct.
6, the Dolphins ran the ball
twice after halftime. Mi-
ami's after-halftime rush-
ing average of 2.9 yards
per carry is worst in the
NFL, but coach Joe Philbin
wouldn't go as far to say
that his team has aban-
doned the ground game at
times this season.
"Not necessarily," Phil-
bin said after practice
Tuesday. "I don't know if
we could not run the ball.
We certainly didn't have
the production we wanted.
There are some times from
a schematics standpoint
where we choose not to
run the football. It's not
necessarily we could not,
but we may feel like there
is a better alternative as to
running the ball."


falling to the Tigers 48-0 on
Sept. 20 but nearly pulling
off a huge road win over
the Hornets on Sept. 6, los-
ing 22-14 in overtime.'
Thomas said that the Ga-
tors have been a hard team
to peg this season, as they
have looked formidable at
'times and have struggled
mightily at others:
But he has made sure
to highlights the ',Gators'
potential in practice this,
week, showing his team
how close they came to
beatingaCottondale squad
that defeated Sneads 30-20
on Sept. 20.
"It doesn't help that
Wewa got beat last week.
If they had won last week
that would be three (wins)
in a row and that would
help our kids be a little
more focused on that,"
Thomas said. "But the only
film I have shown them is
the Cottondale film ,be-
cause I want them to see
Wewa's capabilities. Those
are the same kids and the
same coaches we'll see
Friday, so I want them to
understand that there is a
threat there."


ple stepping up and hav-
ing other guys just keeping
up what they've been do-
ing all season," Cross said.
"If the offensive line keeps
blocking and' opening
up holes, then anybody
should be able to step up
and fill those holes. De-
fensively, we've been play-
ing outstanding and if'the
defensive linemen and
Deontre and the lineback-
ers do what they've been
doing, then we should be
OK. -
"Losing (Pollock and
Screen) is a big loss, but if
we keep plugging away and
doing our assignments like
we're supposed to do, then
we should be fine."


Bills' Manuel to


miss 4-6 weeks


The Associated Press.

ORCHARD PARK, N.Y
- Buffalo Bills rookie

four to six weeks now that
he's begun rehabbing his

Dear Annie: I'm 76 years old, and my
55th college reunion is coming up soon.
I'm not sure I should attend.,
At every reunion, "he" is always there.
We had a beautiful senior year and were
very much in love. I expected a ring
for graduation, but it never happened.
After graduation, we moved apart and
met up during the summer, sharing
fall weekends attending football games
with friends. After the last game, I felt'
.a change. He never called or wrote.
Through a mutual friend, I heard that he
got back together with an ex-girlfriend
and married.
- We had the right love, but the timing
was bad. I receive a Christmas card and
note from him every year. At every re-
union. I want to be friendly and neutral,
but I end uip withmy composure gone. I
act like a spoiled teen, and he gets a chip
on his shoulder.
Now I want to go to say thanks for all
we shared. I have had a great life. I never
married, but my life has been full with
a wonderful career, loyal friends, loving
family, travel and entertaining. My years:


of fantasizing about my ex-boyfriend
were over long ago.
We may never see each other again,
and I don't want my life to end with this
bitter feeling. So, should I drop him a
note and say, "I'd love to see you and
your wife at the reunion"? What do you.
' say?
AVERY EX COLLEGE GIRL

Dear Ex Since he attends every re-
union, you don't need to send him a note
in advance, giving him the impression
that his presence is the main reason you
would be there. He may already think
this. Don't reinforce it. More importantly,
are you certain you can behave in a
friendly, neutralmanner? Neither your
Track record nor your letter is convincing.
If you attend, wesuggest you practice
what you plan to say in advance so you
don't end up ad-libbing something you.
regret. Socialize with others as much as
possible. If that doesn't work, you can
always send him a note with your annual
Christmas card, telling him what you
Want him to know.

He can get two diamond

might drop singleton),.

East has no riposte. '
If declarer takes trick
one, then when East gets
in with, say, the club king,
he returns the spade six
(higher of two remaining
cards) and West plays his
three to keep communi-
cation with his partner.
Then the contract fails,
the defenders taking three
spades, one diamond and
one club.

vote at Talladega.
KEN'S CALL: Jeff

What are the odds

Kyle Busch's frustration level is rising. There's
that running feud with Brad Reselowski, that
crash at Kansas and the fact he's never won a
Chase race. Busch finished fifth at Charlotte and
-said, "It certainly stinks."
Go on. "We're not good enough. It's frustrating,
man. I'm beating myself-up every week trying to
figure out what I got to do to be better, and I don't
know what it is. I work hard through practice. I
work hard through the week. I study film. I do
everything .1 need to do but it's not paying off."
Three of the drivers that finished ahead of
. Busch on Saturday night are the same drivers
he is battling for title honors. "We need to win
races and we're not capable of doing that right
now," Busch said.

'KEZ' COMPLETES PENSKE SWEEP
Brad Keselowski's victory at Charlotte
was important on many levels for the 2012
Sprint Cup champion, who missed the
Chase playoffs this season. During post-
race interviews, car owner Roger Penske said
Keselowski was the final driver at Penske
Racing (NASCAR, IndyCar) to win a race this
year.
"At the end of the day we haven't been
to victory circle, and i think.
Brad was concerned,"
Penske said. "We all
were. But we knew
he was the guy that
gave usaa champi-
onship last year,
and every driver
in our stable now
has won a race
this year."
The Penske
NASCAR (Cup,
Nationwide)
lineup includes
AJ Allmending-
er, Sam Horn-
ish Jr., Joey Lo-
gano and Ryan
Blaney. Over
in the IndyCar
Series stable are
Helio Castroneves
and Will Power. ,
All went to Victory
Lane before."Kez."
Keselowski won five
Cup Series races last season,
so'this one brought a sense
of relief to the young Michi- .
gan driver, who is not afraid
to share his opinion oh. any
subject. ...


Godwin Kelly is Ihe Daytona
Beach News-Journal's motor
sports editor and has covered
NASCAR for 30 years. Reach
l him at godwin.kelly@i
M news-lrnl.com


"To put all that together at the end and come
out on top is something we're going to be proud
of and cherish for a long, long time," Keselowski
said.

EARNHARDT'S FADE
The Earnhardt Nation had high hopes for Dale
Earnhardt Jr. at Charlotte. He started sixth in the
No. 88 Chevy and led 19 laps before slowly sliding
backward through the 43-car field. He finished
15th ..


AP, TERRY RENNA
Is Jimmie laughing all the way,
to the banquet? Maybe, but his .
'seating arrangement isn't set.

A potential bad sign for Jimmie?
For those with the thankless task of
trying to beat the No. 48 team during
the next five weeks as well as those
who simply pull against the No. 48 -
Charlotte's missed opportunity might
just be a small sign of hope. Generally,
when Jimmie Johnson is on any kind
of roll and is in position to win, he
wins. But this past Saturday night, fate
conspired against him and he finished
fourth.
Will that end up hurting him? '
Ask after Taliadega this week. As al-
ways. Talladega looms as. potentially,
the Great Equalizer. It'll be interesting
to see what strategies the two points
Leaders Matt Kenseth and Johnsop
employ once the green flag flies and
fans slide to the edge of their seats.
Would "hanging in the back" be
within the spirit of competition?
Assuming it's part of a strategy to
successfully compete, let's assume
NASCAR is OK with it. Restnrictor-plate
racing already falls under the category
of "contrived competition." so employ-
ing the survival mode shouldn't be
frowned upon.

FEUD OF THE WEEK


First one out: Jimmie Johnson
Don't be surprised if: Harvick bat-
tles Gordon and the Buschs for the
win and suddenly it's a legitimate
ive.man race lor thie Cup Series
championship.


KYLE BRAD
lUSCH KESELOWSKI
Kyle Busch vs. Brad Keselowski: The
two drivers showed their dislike for
each other by trading barbs via the
media at Charlotte Motor Speedway.
Godwin Kelly gives his take: '."Kesel-
owski poured a pinch of salt on the
wound by winning at Charlotte, which
was four positions better than Busch.
Ouch."
