FCI workers on duty but pay delayed

dbucl'halterjctlonridan coni

At the Federal Correctional
Institution in Marianna, some
325 people have been working
full time without immediate pay
since Oct. 1, when the federal
government partially shut down
in a standoff over the Affordable
.Care Act. '
And as 'the national leaders
stand toe-to-toe on the line that
has been drawn in the sand,
rank-and-file correctional of-
ficers and other employees at
FCI worry about things like the

mortgage, utilities and college
tuition fees for their children.
Jeff Godwin, president of the
union that advocates for 85 per-
cent of the union-eligible work-
ers at FCI, says the sting of the
stalemate will be felt today, when
prison employees 'get their first
paycheck to have been issued
since the shutdown began. They
were in the middle ofatwo-week
pay period when it started, and
even though they workedat least
their full 80 hours over 10 days
as essential personnel and
possibly some overtime they
will only see six days worth of

compensation when their pay-
checks hit the hank Tuesdai.
Godwin said they've been as-
sured they'll be paid eventually.
It's just a matter of when. And
that unknown is causing some
employees serious financial
strain and mental/emotional
stress, he said. With the dura-
tion of the shutdown unknown,
Godwin said some could be in
danger of missed car payments
or shortages for other critical
bills. ,
'"I anticipate that tomorrow
See FCI, Page 7A

Even with the government shutdown, the employees at the Federal
Correctional Institution in Marianna are still on the job. They just aren't
sure when they will be paid for their work.

manhunt competition
dbuckhalter-ilclordclan corn
A bloodhound, four beagles and four han-
dlers from lackson Correctional Institution
brought home the top honors in a multi-state
man-tracking event held in the Blackwater State
Forest a few days ago.
Competing against 31 other teams, ICI won
4i t place in the multiple-leash division of the
"annual Southeastern States Manhunt .field
Sgt. Charlie Price said the "boss" of the pack,
an 8-year-old determined bloodhound named
Sadie, helped lead the team to victory.
Price and fellow officers larrod Barfield,
Tray Benton and Shane Cloud used five
dogs in the competition. Sadie and beagles
Tebow, Robin Josie and Buddy record-
ed the fastest combined times .in day-
light and night events that took place
over a three-day period at the beginning of
In the daylight event, the dogs tracked their
prey across a 1.5-mile track, finding the four
target flags in less than 17 minutes.
In the night event, they found their target
in 10 minutes, 39 seconds, trying to find a
"suspect" who had walked away from his "cap-
tors." The next closest time was 10 minutes, 52 ,
seconds. '
The JCI team took first place in this event once
before, back in 2007.

Upscale eateries and
wine bars have replaced

halls that once lined the
city's main drag. Young
sailors from nearby Pen-

still frequent the area, but
nowadays are often lured
by the family friendly art
and music scene rather
than the bars. And a new
minor-league baseball sta-
dium draws thousands of
fans to downtown's once-
dilapidated waterfront.
Gallery nights attract up
to 15,000 visitors each of
the seven Fridays a year
they are held. Weekly out-

a downtown park draw up
to 8,000 visitors each night

stay open late and display
the works of local artists.
"I didn't know how well

In a 2000 photo. Carnival Cruise Lines newest ship, the

Th.-? Asociated Pres
MIAMI A 6-year-old
boy drowned in one of the
pools aboard a Carnival
Cruise Lines ship while at
sea, the company said in a
statement Monday.
The Carnival Victory was
on the last leg of a four-day
Caribbean cruise Sunday
when the boy drowned in
the midship pool. He was
at the pool area with oth-
er familUy members at the
time, the statement said.
"To the best of our knowl-
edge it is the first time a
child has drowned aboard
one of our ships," Carnival
spokeswoman Joyce Oliva
7 said in an email to The As-
sociated Press.
The ship arrived Monday
morning at Port Miami.
There were 3,094 guests on
the ship and approximate-
ly 1,100 staff members,.
Carnival said.
"Carniv'al extends its
heartfelt sympathy to the
family during this very dif-
ficult time. The company's
CareTeam is providing
assistance and support,"
Carnival said in its state-
The Miami-Dade Po-
lice Department was in-
,vestigading the drowning
and identified the boy as
Qwenryn Hunter dfWiimter
Garden, Fla. Investigators
said the boy was with his
10-year-old brother in the
pool at the time. Passen-
gers immediately pulled
the boy from the water and
began CPR, but the child
was pronounced dead at
the scene.
The drowning appeared
to be accidental and foul
play was not suspected,
police said.
The Miami-based cruise
company has 24 ships that
attract an average of 4.5
million passengers a year.
Phone numbers listed for
Hunter's parents rang busy
or unanswered Monday.
Hunter was a "sweet
kid, very, precocious,"
according to Jeff Callen-
der, owner 'of Ariza Tal-
ent andN Modeling Agency.
Callender said the agency
had been working with
Hunter for half a year and
he had been on four audi-
"He had a bright future

in entertainment," he'
said. The agency's website :i;
shows Hunter with an ex-
pressive face. smiling and
joking in five photos. "The
thing I found most beau-
tiful about him, he knew
how to move his ears," Cal-
lender said.
Thebody.ofa 41-year-old
man was found last month
in a hot tub aboard the '
same ship where Hunter
died, and he also appar-
ently drowned. Michael
Moses Ward had been a
survivor of the 1985 bomb-
ing of the militant group
MOVE in Philadelphia.
On a Disney cruise last
year, a small boy nearly
drowned. Still, drown-
ings are infrequent even-
though cruise ships are not
required to have lifeguards
on duty, according to Ross
Klein, who runs the web-
site cruisejunkie.com and
is a sociologist at Memorial
University of Newfound-
land in Canada.
,. There is a great deal of
debate on whether cruise
lines should have life-
tguards, according to Jim
Walker, a Miami maritime '
attorney and author of a
blog called www.cruiselaw.
"This involves the .de-
bate between personal re:-
sponsibility and corporate"
responsibility," he wrote
in an email to The Associ-
ated Press. "Yes, parents
should have responsibility
for watching their children
but at the same time cruise
corporations have a duty
to watch over the parents
and children and provide
a reasonably safe place for
them to have a family va-
cati6n." ,
Carol Finkelhoffe, chair-
Passenger Ship Committee
of the Maritime Law Asso-
ciation of the U.S., said not
every drowning aboard a
cruise ship is reported but.
"they are common enough .
that they happen."
Finkelhoffe said cruise
lines owe it to their passen-
gers to provide lifeguards.
"Someone should be
watching thepool. It's fore-
seeable that these types of
accidents can happen...
and they should do some-
thing to prevent them,"
she said.

He said the situation is
made worse because eiri-

mation piecemeal and
that some of the things
they're hearing are in con-
flict with each other."
For instance, he said the
issue of overtime is a mat-
ter of some confusion.
SThe prison, he said, is
overcrowded and 'there-
fore overtime is a common

claims that, to achieve

been rearranged to the
point that employees' per-

Researchers analyzed
blood samples from when
the women were discov-
ered to be pregnant and
divided, them into four
groups based on BPA
levels. Women in the top
quarter had an 80 percent
greater risk of miscarriage
compared to those in the

they were similar in. age

then two-man cells have
been modified to hold

tually every federal prison

The problems with off-
time are even more seri-
ous, he asserts. Some em-

said, but, according to
him, some managers have
cited human resource
directives as the reason
they've expressed strong

Iran talks of new proposals in nuclear talks

The Associated Press

GENEVA Iran is prom-
ising a new proposal to
break the deadlock over its
nuclear program when it
resumes talks Tuesday with
the U.S. and five major
world powers the first
since the election of a re-
formist Iranian president.
The U.S. and its partners
are approaching the talks
.with caution. They are ea-
ger to test Tehran's new
style since the June elec-
tion of President Hassan
Rouhani but insist that it
will take more than words
to advance the negotia-
tions and end crippling in-
ternational sanctions.
Iran has long insisted
it does not want nuclear
weapons and that its nu-
clear program is entirely
peaceful a position re-
ceived with skepticism in
Western capitals.. But Ira-
nian officials from 'Rou-
hani down say their coun-
try is ready to meet some
international demands to
reduce its nuclear activi-
ties and build trust.
Deputy Foreign Minister
Abbas Araghchi, a senior
member of Iran's nriegoti-
Saing team, said Sunday
that Tehran is bringing a
new proposal to the talks
to dispel doubts about the

In this 2010 photo, a worker rides a bicycle in front of the reactor building of the Bushehr
nuclear power plant, just outside the southern city of Bushehr, Iran. The chances for progress
between Iran, the U.S. and itspartners have seldom been better.

nuclear program. While of-
fering no details, he told
Iran's student news agency
ISNA that the Islamic Re-
public should, "enter into
a trust-building path with
the West." .
"In their point of view
trust-building means tak-
ing some steps on the Ira-
nian nuclear issue, and
in our view 'trust is made
when the sanctions are
lifted," Araghchi said.
No final deal is expected
at the two-day session.
However, if the Iranians

succeed in building trust;
the talks including the
U.S., Britain, France, Rus-
sia, China and Germany
- could be the launch-,
ing pad for a deal that has
proven elusive since nego-
tiations on Iran's nuclear
program began in 2003* .
That would reduce the
threat of war between Iran
and Israel and possibly the'
United States.; The latter
two have vowed never to
accept a' nuclear-armed
From the six-power per-

spective, the ideal out-
come would be for Tehran
to scale back aspects of
its nuclear program that
many nations fear could
aid in making a bomb.
That would trigger a grad-
ual liftinrig of the economic
sanctions on Iran.
On the eve of the talks,
a senior U.S. administra-
tion official said Washing-
ton was encouraged by
Rouhani's more moderate
tone and would be testing
Tehran's intentions in the
coming days.

But the official, who was
riot authorized to speak
on the record and briefed
reporters on condition of
anonymity, said the United
States would insist on con-
fidence-building measures
"that address our priority
Heading Iran's delegation
at the talks is Iranian For-
eign Minister Javad Zarif,
a veteran, U.S.-educated
diplomat who helped ne-
gotiate a cease-fire with
Iraq 25 years ago. He says
his country is ready to al-
low more intrusive inter-
national perusal of Teh-
ran's nuclear program.
Other Iranian officials,
meanwhile, say there is
room to discuss interna-
tional concerns about Ira-
nian uranium enrichment
to 20 percent a level that
is higher than most reac-
tors use for power and only
a technical step away from
weapons-grade uranium
suitable for warheads.
SIran now has nearly 200
kilograms (440 pounds) of
20 percent-enriched ura-
nium in a form that can
be quickly upgraded for
weapons use, according to
the U.N's atomic agency,
which keeps tabs on Iran's
nuclear activiies. That is
close to6--but still below
- what is needed for one

nuclear weapon.
Even if Iran agrees to stop
20-percent production,
ship out its 20-percent
stockpile and allow more
oversight by U.N. nuclear
inspectors, the six powers
want more.
A former senior U.N. of-
ficial who has acted as an
intermediarybetween U.S.
and Iranian officials -said
the six powers want signif-
icant cuts in the more than
10,000 centrifuges now en-
riching uranium.
They also demand that
Iran ship out not only the'
small amount of 20 per-
cent uranium it now ,has
but also most of the tons
of low-enriched uranium
it has produced. And they
want caps on the amount
of enriched uranium that
Iran would be allowed to
keep at any time. The offi-
cial spoke on condition of
anonymity because he was
not authorized to com-
ment on the talks.
Iran says it needs this
material to power a future
reactor network, and Ira-
nian state television Sun-
day quoted Araghchi as
saying Tehran was ready
to discuss its enrichment"
program but would never
ship enriched materials
abroad. He described that
stance as "our red line."

when the U.S.-backed

"The way they operate
is to call the hotel, ask to

Carrillo Ruiz, an assistant
state prosecutor in Oaxa-
ca. Many of the tourists, all
from Mexico, reported the
crime, instead of paying

President Enrique. Pena

the rise in extortions is a

Swinney said Sunday.
The Seminoles (5-0, 3-0) are

land and then an open date last
weekend. Clemson needed a pair

Alabama coach Nick Saban gestures as he talks with assis-

Saturday's game in Lexington, Ky.

Alabama's Saban

not giving out all

A s at midterm
The Associated-Press

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. Alabama coach Nick Saban
isn't about to dole out straight A's on the top-ranked
Crimson Tide's midterm report card.
He'd prefer his progress report through half the
regular season to go beyond what 'Bama has done
"It'd be easier to answer that question if you said,
'Is there anything you don't need to improve on?'"
Saban said Monday. "I think there's a lot of things
that we need to6 improve on."
Keep the hankie in your pocket. The Tide (6-0, 3-
0 Southeastern Conference) hasn't even been chal-
lenged the past four weeks, piling up big numbers
and easy wins even as potential national challeng-
ers like Stanford and Georgia have fallen., ,
Those defeats aren't hot topics around the foot-
ball building leading up to Saturday's game against
struggling Arkansas (3-4, 0-3).
"Yeah, we see other teams fall down and we just
want to make sure we go out there and do our job,"
offered guard Anthony Steen.
Fumbles. Dropped passes. The big play or two al-
lowed by the defense in a 48-7 win over Kentucky.
Those issues are more likely to come up.
"I don't think that we've played our best game by
any stretch of the imagination," Saban said. "I think
there's a lot of things that we can improve on. Ob-
viously we haven't gotten a lot of turnovers on de-
fense. I think there's times when we've given up too
many big plays on defense."
The Tide is in the midst of a six-game stretch with-
out playing a team with a winning record. Alabama
has won.the first four by an average of 33 points and
outgained those opponents by 272 yards per ganime
while allowing just 46 first downs.
That's the good. Even the bad from the latest mis-
match come with caveats. .
The Tide lost two early fumbles, against the Wild-
cats, though culprits T.J. Yeldon and Kenyan Drake
each topped 100 rushing yards.
Alabama also had several dropped passes, even
if it didn't keep AJ McCarron from finishing with a
career-high 359 passing yards. A secondary relying
heavily on freshmen and sophomores allowed a 30-
yard touchdown pass, ending a streak of 14 quar-
ters without allowing an opponent to reach the end
So what if the Wildcats managed only 46 passing
yards the rest of the game.
Those are small things in a 41-point win, but plen-
ty for Saban to harp on.
"Coach is always telling us, don't look at the score-
board," receiver Kevin Norwood said. "Worry about
playing our best game. Arid that's what-we want to
do play'our best game. It just so happened that
we always have something to work on. It's always a
work in progress." .

Big 12 set for wide-open race with early surprises

,The Associated'Press

S, There are some early sur-
prises in the Big 12 Confer-
ence, which is still setting
up as'the expected wide-
open race. ,
The league's only un-
defeated teams are 12th-
ranked Baylor (5,0, 2-0 Big
12) and No. 16 Texas Tech
(6:0, 3-0 Big 12) with new
coach and former quarter-
back Kliff Kingsbury.
And Texas, after going 1 -
2 in nonconference games
with big losses to BYU
and Mississippi, is 3-0 in
the Big 12 after a season-
shifting victory over Qkla-
" homa last weekend in the
Red River Rivalry that the
Soohers had. dominated
"We're so fortunate to
be in a conference," Long-
horns coach Mack Brown
said.. "Teams that are inde-
pendent, after they have
some problems early don't
have a chance to rebound
and still save their season
and have something to
play for."
With eight weeks left in
the regular season, the top
five teams in the league
standings still have to play
each other, except for that
36-20 win by Texas (4-
2) over the 18th-ranked

Sooners (5-1,2-1).
"Our league is exciting
this year because there is
not 'A' team that everybody
can pick," Brown said. "It's
already changed two or
three times."
Meanwhile, defending
Big 12 champion' Kansas
State is 0-3 in conference
play' going into an open
date. "
"It's a strong belief of
ours' that anybody can
, defeat anyone else' on
any given day," coach'Bill
Snyder said. "I think that's
proving out right now."
When Big 12 coaches
submitted their preseason
ballots back in July, six dif-
ferent teams got first-place
votes. Texas Tech wasn't
one of them, and 'was
picked to finish seventh.
"I think it's the same way
if we had looked at it in
August, you look at it and
say it's a wide-open race,"
Baylor coach Art Briles
said during the weekly
teleconference with Big
12 coaches. "Nothing has
changed as we're into Oc-
tober. I d6n't think it's a
surprise to anybody."
Except maybe the early
order of the teams.
Baylor, which averaged
more than 70 points is first
four games, survived its

first road test. They Bears
won 35-25 Saturday at
Kansas State, which'. was
intent of avenging the lop-
sided loss from last season
when the Wildcats got to
Waco as the No. 1 team in
the BCS standings.
No. 21 Oklahoma 'State
(4-1, 1-1) was the pre-
season favorite by the
coaches to win the league,
just ahead of the Sooners.
The Cowboys had an early
loss at West Virginia (3-3,
1-2), which has alternated
wins and losses all season.
"There's a lot of parity in
this league. I've said this
for a number ofyears now,":
Oklahoma State coach
Mike Gundy said. "It's in-
creasing each season."
Considerthat in the past
seven years, only Texas in
2009 went undefeated in
Big 12 play, and that was
on the way to playing in
the BCS national chaim-
pionship game. Kansas

State and Oklahoma State
shared the league title with
one Big 12 loss last year,
when six other teams were
either 5-4 or 4-5 in league
The Cowboys, coming off
an open date, host TCU (3-
3, 1-2) on Saturday. Texas
doesn't play this week be-
fore going on the road to
play the Longhorns. ,
TCU coach Gary Patter-
son would prefer the Big 12
play its conference games
in consecutive weeks with-
out open dates.
"I think it's an unfair
advantage when people
have off weeks," Patterson
said. "The thing I'd change
about what we do in the
league; once we get into
it, we play, we don't have
any off weeks.,... Sb it's all
Patterson, who will get
an extra week to prepare
for Baylor in late Novem-
ber, knows television,

.helps dictate the schedule.
And there could be some
high drama with late-sea-
son games having poten-
tial Big 12 championship
While there are a lot of
games left before then,
Texas Tech plays at Texas
onThanksgiving night. The
regular season ends the
first Saturday in Decem-
' ber with the Longhorns at
Baylor, and Oklahoma go-
ing to Oklahoma State.
The Sooners have to
quickly get over the Red
River Rivalry loss. They are
at Kansas on Saturday be-
fore games' against Texas
Tech and Baylor.
"Our season, win or lose
through (the Texas) game,
isn't the end-all," Okla-
homna coach Bob Stoops
said. "-We always play

time every year so it's' the
same message every year.

Only 2 teams left undefeated

The Associated Press

Looks like the only place for the un-

Denver and Kansas City are the last
two teams with perfect NFL records

starting job on his 30th
birthday. Some might call
that an undeserved gift.
Browns coach Rob
Chudzinski said Monday
that he is staying with
Weeden as his starter de-
spite the inexcusable in-
terception he threw in the
fourth quarter of Sunday's
* 31-17 loss to Detroit.
"This was one game,"
Chudzinski said., "I
thought that Brandon
played well in spurts and
at times he obviously
made critical mistakes.
"It's just not one guy."
With the Browns trailing
24-17, Weeden, trying to
avoid being sacked while
under pressure from Lions
defensive tackle C.J. Mos-
ley, inexplicably flipped
the ball backhanded to-
ward fullback Chris Og-
bonnaya near Detroit's
sideline. The shocking
attempt was picked off by
Lions linebacker DeAidre

possibility of making a

"It's never just about one

play ,or person to assign
blame," Chudzinski said.
"We all can be better." .
So the Browns.won't toss
Weeden aside.
SWeeden's mistake may
have: been CleVeland's
costliest, but it certainly
wasn't the Browns' only
one. They were outscored
'24-0 in the second half by
the Lions, who capitalized
on mismatches with run-
ning back Reggie Bush;
forced Weden to rush
his throws; and scored on
four of five possessions
after halftime.
* Weeden is an easy target
for media members and
fans, but Chudzinski said
there was plenty of blame
to apply evenly through-
out Cleveland's roster.
"Anytime you're talking
about offense there's a lot
of different people and
moving parts involved
ahd it takes 11 guys to be
successful," Chudzinski
said. "We're praying well
at times and at times we're
not playing so well. I think.
that when you look at it,
Brandon is doing some
good things and it's really
just a matter of cutting
out the critical mistakes."

Annie's Mailbox

Dear Annie: We belong to a"dinner
group with six married couples. One of
the couples divorced after thehusband
caught his wife having an affair. He ino
longer'comes to the dinner parties, but
the; ex-wife still shows up and brings'her
new (married) boyfriend. They have been
together for three years.
Here's the bigger problem: She flirts
with my husband at every social activity.
She always gives him a hug when We run
into her. He is always, pleasant and chats,
when I'd rather he was less chummy.
One time, on NewYear's Eve, I saw my
husband put his armaround her waist
as she moved to the music with another
man. I watched (humiliated) as the three
of them swayed back and forth.
I assume it was the alcohol that
prompted him to do this. However, it
apparently fueled her fire. At one din-
ner party, she leaned across the table
toward me and made a comment about
my husband's "size." I kept my cool and
replied that it wasn't her business, but
my husband, who was sitting right next
to me, said nothing.

S, ,. Bridge
Yesterday's deal was difficult; today's requires
genius. But as you have been warned to look for
something unusual, maybe you will see the winning,
play for South. He is in three no-trump after East has
overcalled in hearts.West leads the heart jack and East
encourages with his nine. What should declarer do?
,South's negative double showed exactly four spades.
His second-round jump to three no-trump was a
tad precipitate. He should have made a game-forc-
ing two-heart' cue-bid. Then, perhaps, North-South
would have reached five clubs, which would have
been bulletproof with this layout. (Even four spades
can be made!)
South starts with eight top tricks: four spades, one
heart (given trick one), two diamonds and one club.
Obviously, numerous more winners are available
from the clubs. And if East has the courtesy to hold
the kingfor his overcall,'South might take all 13 tricks.
However, note what happens if declarer makes the
natural-looking play of winning the first trick, playing
a spade to dummy's king, and running the club 10 (or
playing low to his jack). West produces the club king,
then leads his second heart. East takes four tricks in
that suit for down one.
To make his contract, South must duck (lose) the
first trick! Yes, West may lead his second heart and
East can win with his ace, but dummy's 10 is still a
stopper. And East has no entry card.,

At the' dinners, we act like friends, but
I am sorely tempted to.give her apiece"
of my mind.lMy husband is getting ag-,
gravated with mie. He claims he's never
cheated on me and she's never touched
him inappropriately He says, "What
am I supposed to do?" I asked him to
delete her cell number, but he has not
done that. This woman is not my friend,
and I think she's crossed a line.Any
suggestions? . E U

Dear Enough: As always In such cases,
the problem is less about the woman and
more about your husband's reaction. He
allows her flirting and even encourages
her, and then becomes annoyed with you
for doubting him. It undermines your
trust. There is no reason for him to have
her phone number in his contact list. Ask
him to delete it while you are watching.
Then tell him all of his future responses
to this woman's inappropriate remarks
should make it clear to her that he is not
interested. If he refuses, the next step is
