Work toward industrial site

certification moves forward


BYANGIE COOK
acoc'k,.'icIIoridan.com

Marianna is moving forward with
Getting two of its industrial sites
certified as part of a Gulf Power
program..
The Marianna City Commission
convened for a special meeting on
Wednesday, Oct. 16, during which a
$300,000 grant and associated work
orders were approved to further the
certification process that'began ear-
liei this year. ,
SCity officials are working toward
getting the airport/industrial park
(off S.R. 71) and distribution/con-
struction services park (just south
of Marianna's western Interstate 10
exit) certified by McCallum-Swee-
ney Consulting for the Gulf Power


program that aims to entice industry
to the pre-screened work sites.
Now that the city has been award-
ed a $300,000 Rural Infrastructure
Fund grant by the Florida Depart-
ment of Economic Opportunity for
the project, design, survey and ot0er
engineering, work is set to begin at
the two sites the.city hopes will at-
tain Industrial Park Certification.
The grant money will pay for that
work, plus a pre-clearance review
and other costs associated with the
McCallum-Sweeney. Industrial Site
Certification requirements.
Rick Penis of David H. Melvin Inc.
Consulting Engineers will manage
the work projects..

America's Best Community Colleges:

The common factor among seven schools


Special to the Floridan
Washington Monthly re-
cently announced their
list of America's Best Com-
munity Colleges for 2013,
which used eight mea-
sures to evaluate schools
across the country While
each institution on the
list is unique in its own
way, one common factor
among seven of them is
their implementation of
Hawkes Learning Systems
mathematics software.
The article, published in
the September/October is-
sue highlights educational
practices and student suc-


cess outcomes as key de-
terminates of evaluating
the schools. Kevin Carey,
director of the Educa-
tion Policy program at the
'New America Foundation,
describes what factors
are taken into account to
rank the best of the best
schools.
"(The Community Col-
lege Survey of Student
Engagement) tracks the
number of books and pa-
pers students are assigned,
the amount of interaction
with faculty, the hours
spent preparing for class,
and the quality of support
services. Colleges that con-


nect with their students
and challenge them to do
good work get particularly
high marks," said Carey.
For Hawkes executives,
seeing customers'achieve
top recognition is not tak-
en lightly.
"These are remarkable
community colleges. They
are paying attention to
what matters by keeping
a close connection with
their students, support-
ing them and challenging
, them throughout their
college career," said Em-
ily Cook, vice president
of sales and marketing at
Hawkes. "Of utmost sig-


nificance is how well these
colleges are retaining their
students apd keeping them
on track to receive their
degree. High quality edu-
cation is being achieved at
these community colleges,
and Hawkes Learning is
proud to be working with
their students and faculty
in mathematics."
SHawkes users that made
the list are: North Central
Missouri College, Chipola
College, Kauai Community
College, .Itasca Commu-
nity College, Miami Dade
College, Bay de Noc Com-
munity College and Green
River Community College.

expensive lesson in


how not to govern

WATe thought Congress had learned the foolish-
j ness of forcing a government shutdown in
1V 995-96. Apparently not.
Now the country has taken a $24 billion hit to its
economic growth to teach that same lesson to congres-
sional radicals, mostly House Republicans,, who were
too young or too obtuse to learn it the last time around.
Theratings agency Standard 8& Poor's estimated the
shutdown knocked 0.6 percent off gross domestic
product growth through lost economic output; the S&P
reduced its estimate of annualized economic growth
in the fourth quarter by a fullpercentage point, from
3 percent to 2. Moody's Analytics was slightly more
Optimistic. It estimated the hit to GDP would be only
$23 billion.
Either way, the final cost is likely to be even higher
.as scattered reports of the economic damage begin to
come in. .
In the area at the shutdown's epicenter, theDistrict of
Columbia and Maryland lost a combined $21 million
a week in sales taxes. That number will worsen when
Virginia tallies up its damage.
SThe U.S. Travel Association estimated that $2.4 billion
in travel spending was lost.
The National Park Service estimated it was losing
$450,000 a day, although that was mitigated in a few

local businesses heavily depend.
The National Retail Federation is expecting only
marginal sales gains of 3,9 percent, to $602 billion, dur-
ing the November and December holidays -- a critical
period for many'small businesses.
We'll have a better fix on the damage when a dozen or
so government economic reports resume publication.
Those include reports on employment, retail sales and
inflation.
There are two more opportunities on the near ho-
rizon for-another shutdown: in December, when the
resolution ending the shutdown must be renewed, and
in January; when the government's borrowing limit
must be raised. '
Let's hope Congress has learned a lesson. Heaven
knows, we've paid enough for it.


Letter to the Editor

Dear editor,
We are deeply grateful to you for the beautiful article
you featured in your newspaper describing Noah's CAN-
paign and the new and upcoming McLane's CAN-paign.
We are already having responses for offers to help with
aluminum can collections for both programs.
Thank you so much for your wonderful promotion in
"getting the word out," so that more and more children
and families will be able to receive a helping hand to
brighten their lives. The gifts provide a Christmas they
wouldn't be able to have otherwise, but even more so,
the outreach to let them know that others (all of you)
care about them is the most long-lastingand priceless
gift ofall. :
Thank you especially for the sweet remembrances of
our beloved family member; JackWester, who went to
be with the Lord on Nov. 12, 2012. Noah's "BigDaddy"
was a big supporter of the efforts to raise funds to
'help others. We also love and appreciate Noah's other
grandfather, Mr. Jinmmy McArthur or "Papa Jimmy" of.,
Bascom, who has been a huge supporter of this chari-
table program. He has worked diligently to pick up cans
along the roadside or from others who donated cans
and has transported countless loads of aluminum cans
inhis truck to the recycling center.
SHow blessed our son and we are to have .such support
and love shown to us. Of course, there are many, many
others whorn we depend on and could not do without,
on this venture of "recycling cans for cash" to help oth-
ers. We do truly thank each and every one of you, from
the bottom of our hearts.
SThe CAN-paign has touched lives, not only the recipi-
ents' lives, but especially our own lives, bringing tears of
happiness and a sense humility and gratefulness to our
hearts. May thegood Lord bless you in a mighty way for
your outreach to others. "Inasmuch as you have done .
it unto one of these my brethren, you have done it unto
Sme" (Matthew 25:40), and "Well done, thou good and
faithful servant" (Matthew 25:21).
Thank you very much again to you, the caring staff
at the "Jackson County Floridan," for your invaluable
assistance, support and encouragement throughout the
past 10 years. We are sincerely and forever grateful to
DAVID AND JACQUELYN MCARTHUR

Bullying demands attention, intervention


The last big case my lawyer
brother handled before his
untimely death in an auto ac-
cident involved bullying in his local
school system. A young female
high school studenthad been vic-
timized by a male contemporary,
or so her parents, contended, and
because they could get no satisfac-
tion from the school authorities,
'they turned to Mike.
Mike's partners thought the
matter had merit but would be
difficult and drawn out. He agreed
but shrugged that off and, as was
usual for him, saw a chance to
correct an injustice. His determi-
nation doubled after his efforts to
bring closure to the matter were
hamstrung by recalcitrant school
officials who failed several times to
resolve it and none too politely
at that.
The finely honed sense of outrage
that made my brother a strong
advocate for those who needed
a stronger voice kicked into high
gear. The ultimate result was vindi-
cation in the form of an expensive
settlement by the school system
and the parents of the accused. A
little common sense and accep-
tance of responsibility could have
saved much.
This all came to mind recently
with the news that an incensed
Florida sheriff had responded in
a far more decisive and positive
fashion than those in Mike's case.
The sheriff had taken a rare step
by charging two girls, 12 and 14,
as contributing to the suicide of
12-year-old Rebecca Ann Sedwick,
who had jumped from the top of an
abandoned cement plant's silo.
Rebecca allegedly had been bul-
lied and harassed beyond all reason
by the other two. The younger
Girl once had been Rebecca's best :.
friend but was convinced by the


Dan K. Thomasson

older girl to physically assault the
victim, who didn't fight back. After
Rebecca's death, the older girl
unremorsefully announced on her
Facebook page that she had bullied
the girl into killing herself. She said
she didn't ".give a (expletive)." She
apparently had considered Sedwick
a rival for the attentionri of a boy.
As a side note, the stepmother of
one of the girls accused of bully-
ing, was accused of beating other
children. She was arrested Oct. 16
upon discovery via video of a July
incident in which she allegedly
punched and hit two boys. She was
charged with two counts of child
abuse with bodily harm and four
counts of child neglect, the Associ-
ated Press reports.
Bullying has been a fact of life for
at least as long as kids have been
going to school, at private institu-
tions as well as public. Boarding
schools, in England and some'in
this country, were notorious for it..
It was all part of growing up, right?
Not if you were on the receiv-
ing end of constant harassment
- mental and sometimes physical
abuse.
All this has been made vastly
more incessant and dangerous
by the Internet and social net-
works. Rebecca Sedwickis among
the well-publicized victims of
viciousness. My daughter, Lisa,
experienced it briefly once; a girl
with whom she had absolutely no
quarrel sent her a nasty, hateful let-


ter full of expletives. Lisa handled it
by confronting the girl and telling
her in no uncertain terms that
she would not tolerate any further
attacks. .
Thank goodness this was before
the online assaults so common
now. Though Rebecca's mother and'
father moved their daughter to a
different school when the bully- -
ing intensified, the online attacks
continued.
We should hail the willingness
of Polk County (Fla.) Sheriff Grady
Judd to. charge the two girls with
aggravated stalking. The younger
of the two accused has shown
remorse and her parents have been
helping in the investigation. She
was released to her parents under
house arrest. The older girl, who
once had urged Rebecca to "drink
bleach and die," was taken into
'custody in the juvenile wing of the
Polk County Jail, according to The
New York Times.
When parents apparently ig-
nore or make excuses for obvious
indications of bullying or other bad
behavior fromtheir child, as the-
older girl's parents allegedly did,
and bad things happen as a result,'
they should be held accountable as
well as their children.
The opportunity to cause harm
through our.enhanced com-
munications networks requires a
new responsibility when it comes
to teaching and monitoring our
offspring. The tendency to commit
abuse is naturally high during ado-'
lescence when judgment is always_
at its lowest. With their smart-
phones and tablets and computers,I
it's easy to go too far.
Sheriff Judd has taken major
stride toward doing something ,
about it. I'm pleased my brother.
did, too. Failing to. act would com-
pound the harm done.


Marching with Lee: A countercultural vision forward


S en. Mike Lee is a man to listen
'to. Washington, D.C., Con-
gress and some Republican
senators are not the most popu-
lar people in-America today, but
suspend your judgment for just a
moment. Consider his indictment
- of American politics and even
conservatism and his vision for
the future.
At the Value Voters Summit, held
during the final days of the govern-
ment shutdown, the junior sena-
tor from Utah cautioned against
something we had been witnessing
in the media over the last weeks.
"Conservatives," he said, "often fall
into a trap.- defining ourselves by,
what we are against: Big govern-
ment, debt, higher taxes and regu-
lations, Obamacare. But we haven't
invested nearly as much time and
energy in communicating what we
conservatives are for. I'm talking
, about more than simply the poli-
cies we advocate. Conservatism is
not about the bills we want to pass,
but the nation we want to be."
'It's worth noting that strategic
misfires are sometimes born of true
conviction. Much of MSNBC these
days consists of assuming Sen. Ted
Cruz was simply trying to advance
his presidential primary creden-
tials by talking down Obamacare
and toleratinrig a shutdown. But his
intention is to address existential
threats born out of fundamental
questions about who we are and
where we. are going.
During his speech, Lee addressed
this: "Too often in this town we
stop thinking about the things that
matter most. We get so caught up
in the thick of things that we not


KathrynLopez

only stop thinking big-.we often
stop thinking at all which leads
to other things like $17 trillion
debt, widespread dysfunction, and
much more."
It's not just aWashington prob-
lem, is it? We get set in our ways
and stop realizing our lives can be
Different, better and about some-
thing more than the coming -- or
missed deadline. Further, we can
help others: out of poverty, out of
depression, out of feeling alone in
the world.
Seven months into the papacy
of Pope Francis, the media seems
much more interested in figuring
out what political label he falls,
under rather than actually listening
to what he says. But what he says
is: Be who you say you are. And you
can't be who you say you are if you
don't know who you are! And you
can't help your brother if you don't
even look at him, if you're com-
pletely indifferent to him, if you
don't even notice him, never mind
fail to weep for his pain.
In remarks in an aptly named
"Room of Renunciation" in Assisi
earlier this month, Pope Francis
advised: "For everyone, even for
our society that is showing signs of
fatigue, if we want to save our-
selves from sinking, it is necessary


to follow the path of poverty. That
does not mean misery-- this idea
should be refuted-- it means
knowing how-to share, how to be
more in solidarity with those in
need, to entrust oneself more to,
God and less to our human efforts.'
Earlier this year, Lee explained
what it is we need to consider as we
move forward in debates about the
economy, health care, immigration,
religious liberty and the very future
of America: "The alternative to big
government is not small govern-
ment. The alternative to big gov-
ernment is a thriving, flourishing
nation of cooperative communities
- where your success depends on
your service. It's a free enterprise,
economy where everyone works
for everyone else, competing to see
who can figure out the best way
to help the most people. And it's a
voluntary civil society, where free
individuals come together to meet
each other's needs, fill in the gaps,
and make sure no onegets left
behind."
He further emphasized: "Our ide-
als demand we identify even more
with those Americans still on the
bottom rungs, where the climbing
is harder, dangerous and lonely.'"
In freedom is duty, a duty that en-
courages and challenges and loves.
Today's challenges require a human
encounter that no government or
politician can lead; it involves an
integrity deeper than any ideology
and a commitment well beyond
any news or campaign cycle.

Police have suspects


The Associated Press

TALLAHASSEE At
least seven inmates in
Florida have used forged
documents in attempts
to escape from prison,
including two killers who
were mistakenly freed be-
cause of the paperwork,
authorities said Tuesday.
-Police said they were
looking at several suspects
in the investigation of the
escape of Joseph Jenkins
and Charles Walker, but so
far they have made no ar-
rests. Florida Department
-of Law Enforcement Com-
missioner Gerald Bailey
said the prisoners were
not cooperating.
"In law enforcement
terms, they've lawyered
up," Bailey said. "But we
will find the details of what
led to' these escapes with-
out their help, but should
they choose to cooperate,
we will have the answers
that we need, the answers
that we demand sooner
rather than later."
Jenkins and Walker were
let out of a Panhandle
prison on Sept. 27 and
Oct. 8,' respectively, be-
cause of fake paperwork
that reduced their life sen-
tences to 15 years, author-
ities said. It was Jenkins'
second time trying to es-
cape with forged papers.
He failed in 2011, Bailey
said.
Jenkins and Walker were
captured Saturday. at a
Panama City motel. Au-
thorities found an iPad
and cellphone there, and
they were reviewing them
for evidence. Police also
want to know .how the
men got to the motel and
who was coming from At-
lanta to take them some-
where else.

ers arrived at the Orange
County Jail on Tuesday

World Impact opens new office in Tallahassee


Special to the Floridan

When broker Rodney El-
kins and his wife Joanna's
oldest son, Rodney, Jr., be-
gan attending Florida State
University, they found
themselves looking for
apartment rentals for him
to live in since the dorms
were full when they would
travel to see him. There
seems to be a shortage of
rental properties near FSU.
So, of course with Rodney


being the Realtor that he
is, he researched the real
estate mar-
ket in Talla-
hassee and
found in-
credible op-
p~rttmity.He
found that
Maloy you can buy
cash flow-
ing, move-in ready prop-
erty near the university for
$30,000. Thus was born
World Impact Real Estate's


opportunity to open an of-
fice in Tallahassee.
Justin
Kindler be-
came the
first agent
to join WIRE
in. its Talla-
hassee of-
fice. Justin, a)
S Tallahassee
native, was trained in real
estate in the Miami-Coral
Gable area. He is familiar
with the options and needs


of the college family.
This seemed like a logi-
cal area to expand our ser-
vices since we are already
in neighboring Bay County
and the Chipola and Mari-
anna area. Tallahassee bet-
ter allows us to serve cli-
ents on the entire Emerald
Coast of thePanhandle,
David Malloy, who lives
just 30 minutes from Tal-
lahassee, is already a top
producer with WIRE has
been servicing that area


since Aug. 1, 2012. He is
a Florida native and has
been a Realtor in the Pan-
handle for more than 15
years. His focus is meeting
the needs of the .customer
and finding the right home
that clients have always
dreamed of. His goal is to
provide superior customer
service with honesty and
integrity.
Having a Tallahassee of-
fice also allows us acces-
sibility to the 920 agents in


Leon County so when we
list property for sale in the
Destin-PCB area we'.can
market better by reaching
more licensed agents.
There are a lot of folks in
the Destin area that have
ties to Tallahassee and now
we can effectively help
with that niche.
If you are looking for real
estate in the Tallahassee
area, give Justin a call today
at 305-772-2470 or David
Malloy at 850-258-4947.


Consumer Reports: Dump your big bank and save


By Consumer Reports

If you're, comfortable with
technology, Consumer Reports
says the lowfees of Internet-only
banks, which deliver services
via smartphone and computer,
might be appealing.
Remember Bank Transfer
Day two years ago? That's when
mad-as-hell consumers were
supposed to bring giant banks
such as Bank of America, Chase
and Citibank to their knees by
moving their money to nonprof-
it credit unions.
It was a bust, says Consumer
Reports. Few people switched,
in part because of the grip big
bankshad on them with their al-
luring online and mobile bank-
ing services.
Now the top 10 credit unions
have caught up, and new com-
petitors have entered the fight
'for your dollars. Here's the low-
down on four alternatives worth
considering.
Credit Unions
Why? They offer all of the


services of a bank (and federal
deposit insurance) but tend
to charge considerably less for
checking accounts and loans.
And they generally pay higher
interest rates on savings.
Why not? The customer-satis-
faction rating for credit unions
dropped 5 points last year, to 82,
according to the American Cus-
tomer Satisfaction Index (ACSI),
which tracks 48 industries. Nev-
ertheless, they still outscored
Chase (74), Citibank (70) and
Bank of America (66).
Where to find them. Member-
ship is open onlyto people in a
specific group, such as employ-
ees of a company, members
of an association or residents
of certain communities. Go to
mycreditunion.gov to find pros-
pects near you.
Regional Banks
Why? If you're uncomfortable,
cutting the cord to a traditional
bank, check put a regional or
midsized bank. They now of-
fer the same technological bells
and whistles but also provide


significantly, higher satisfaction
than the four biggest national
banks, according to the ACSI.
Their satisfaction score was 79
last year, placing them below
credit unions but above the big
banks.
Why not? Smaller isn't always
better. In Texas, Regions Bank
ranked last among 13 banks as-
sessed in J.D. Power's 2013 Re-
tail Banking Satisfaction Survey.
That was worse thanWells Fargo,
Citibank and Bank of America,
though Frost National, another
regional, topped the Lone Star
State list.
Where to find them. Go to jd-
power,com for rankings of re-
gional banks serving your sec-
tion of the country.
Virtual Banks
Why? They typically charge no
monthly fees, have low penal-
ties or none at all and offer FDIC
insurance, direct deposit, elec-
tronic bill payment, debit cards,
photo check deposit and nation-
al networks of fee-free ATMs.
Why not? There are no physical


branches; which might be un-
settling unless you've embraced
mobile banking and rarely need
to set foot inside a branch. Plus
the low- or no-fee business
model might be jeopardized at
some virtual banks that partly
finance their operations from
the fees they collect every time
a customer uses a debit card to
make a purchase, because in
July a federal court ruling sig-
naled that those fees might be
regulated lower.
Where to fird them. Search
online for virtual banks iriclud-
* ing Ally, Capital One 360 Check-
ing, GoBank and Simple.
Prepaid Cards
Why? Once a high-priced op-
tion for low-income consumers
who couldn't qualify for a check-
ing account or credit card, pre-
paid cards have moved into the
mainstream and offer many of
the features of a checking ac-
count. Almost all of them come
with FDIC insurance. And when,
Consumer Reports rated 26
cards in July on value, conve-


nience, safety and other mea-
sures, it found that consumers
could avoid the few fees that the
best ones had.
Why not? All prepaid cards,
aren't created equal. And while
Consumer Reports' ratings didn't
compare the cost of checking
accounts vs. a prepaid card al-
ternative, it did find that the
worst prepaid cards have high,
unavoidable charges, including
activation and monthly fees,
and that one lacked FDIC in-
surance. Four prepaid cards to
.avoid: AccountNow Gold Visa

Bills pile up during illness


Dear Bruce: I was very ill
in 2010 and got way be-
hind on credit card bills. I
tried paying the minimum
amounts that were due,
but without being able to
work, I got way behind. I
planned to go. bankrupt,
but it hasn't been sitting
well with me.
Myhusband passed away
a few months ago, and I
got a 'very small insurance
payment. After the fu-
neral and other expenses,
I have about $9,000 left.
All the credit card compa-
nies want to make offers
of smaller amounts to
settle.
I own my house outright.
I really don't want to go
bankrupt. Do you think
there is any way to get a
loan from a bank or a line
of credit using the house,
and paying the settlement
amounts of the credit
cards? Will a bank refuse to
go for that with my credit
score being in bad shape?

bankruptcy is all about.
Unhappily, you waited a
little bit too long. Had you
filed for;bankruptcy'while
your husband was still
alive, and before there was
an insurance settlement,
there is little question that
the bankruptcy would
have been approved. The
fact that you have $9,000
left after settling the fu-
neral and other expenses
could present some prob-
lems. Regardless of the
source of the funds, the
strong likelihood is that
the courts would want you


to settle at least most of
that money before bank-
ruptcy was allowed.
I understand you are
reluctant to go bankrupt,
and since the credit card
companies are willing to
make a deal, see what kind
of offer you can get, maybe
10 percent, to 15 percent
on the dollar. It may very
well be that you could set-
tle the bills with the $9,000
and not have to consider
bankruptcy.

Largest signed baseball collection on display

ST. PETERSBURG -I-
When New York Yankees
legend Mickey Mantle
signed a baseball for 9-
year-old Dennis Schrader
at a 1956 spring training
game in Florida, it began a
lifelong obsession. Today,
Schrader has more than
4,600 signed baseballs,
certified by Guinness as
the largest such collection
in the world.
That obsession is now on
display at the St. Peters-
burg Museum of History in
Florida. "Schrader's Little

"He captured the essence

InAugust 2011, Guinness
World Records certified
him as the owner of 4,020
baseballs signed by ma-

signed by non-baseball
celebrities brought his
collection of baseballs to
more than 4,600.

The museum, which sits
along St. Petersburg's wa-

up to celebrate the 100th
anniversary of baseball

Spring training began in
St. Petersburg with the St.
Louis Browns playing at
Coffee Pot Park in 1914.
Schrader admitted that
"there's an emptiness"


in his home without the
basebaU-s, but said the
vault was filled \\ith other
collectibles, including his
wife's 500 cookie jars and
several hundred celebrity
autographed photos.'
Schrader's wife, Mary,;
said she and her hus-
band won't stop collecting
signed baseballs.
"In. fact, I have a ball in

Schrader said, laughing
and showing the blank

Nevada boy says he came face-to-face with shooter


The Associated Press

SPARKS, Nev. Stu-
dents cowered in fear and
pleaded for their lives
as a, 12-year-Old Nevada,
boy went on a schoolyard
rampage with a handgun
he brought from home,
waving the weapon at
frightened classmates and
shooting a math teacher in,
the chest oqn a' basketball
court. "
The' boy opened fire
Monday morning on the
Sparks Middle School
campus, wounding two
boys and killing the teach-
er before he turned the
gun on himself.
Washoe County School
District police revealed
Tuesday that the seventh-
grader brought the 9mm
semi-automatic Ruger
handgun from his home,
but' authorities were still
working to determine
how he obtained it. The
student's parents were co-
operating with authorities
and' wouldd face charges in
the case, police said.
Eighth-grader :Angelo,
Ferro recalled' burying

pleading for his. life as
the boy waved the gun
,and threatened to shoot.
Another seventh grader
and Ferro's math teacher,
Michael Landsberry, lay
gunned down nearby.
"The whole time 1 was
hoping Mr. L was OK, we'd
all get through it, it was
a bad dream," Ferro told


The Associated Press on
Tuesday.
Ferro, 13, was in the
schoolyard with friends
when the violence started.
He heard a pop, about 15
minutes before the morn-
ing bell' rang but didn't
think much of it. Then he
saw an injured boy clutch-
ing his wounded arm, and


he watched Landsberry
walk toward the gunman
and take a bullet to the
'chest.
, Unable to get inside the
locked-down school, Fer-
ro and others crouched
against the building for
safety but soon came face-
to-face with .the armed
student.


Ferro didn't know the
boy but said he and other
frightened classmates
tried to talk him out of
firing. But something dis-
tracted the boy, and he
didn't shoot.'" ,
"You could hear the.
panic," Ferro said. "He left,
thank'.God." .
A series of 911 calls
made from the school also
reflected the terror of the
situation, including an
ominous report of "teach-
er down,"
"Can you send please
send police out here," a
panicked student told a
911 disPatcher. "There's a
kid-with a gun."
Authorities 'provided no
motive for the shootingbut
said they've interviewed
20 or 30 witnesses and are
looking into any prior con-
nections between the vic-
tims and the shooter.
"Everybody wants to
know why that's the big
question," Sparks Deputy
Police Chief Tom Miller.,
said.. "The answer is, we
don't know right now."'
Also Tuesday, law en-
forcement and school' of-
ficials again lauded the


actions of Landsberry, a
45-year-old former Marine
who tried to stop the ram-
page before he was killed.
"I cannot express
enough appreciation for
Mr. Landsberry," Washoe
County School District Su-
perintendent Pedro Marti-
nez said at a news confer-
ence. "He truly is a-hero."
Students said they saw
Landsberry walk calmly
toward the shooter and
ask him to hand over'his
weapon before he was
killed. Washoe County
School District 'Police
Chief Mike Mieras said
Landsberry's actions gave
some students enough
time torun to safety. .
Police said they believe
the shooter at one point
tried to enter the school
but couldn't because of
emergency lockdown
procedures.
After killing Landsberry,
the boy fired at a second
student, hitting lim in the
abdomen. He then shot
himself in the head.
The two 12-year-old
boys who were wounded
are in stable condition and
.recovering.

Docs more precise about fill-term pregnancy


The Associated Press

WASHINGTON Mom-
to-be closing in on her due
date? The nation's obste-
tricians are getting more
precise about exactly how
close makes for a full-term
pregnancy.
On average, a pregnancy
lasts 40 weeks, counting.
from the first day of the
woman's last menstrual
period. That's how a due
date is estimated. :
A baby is considered
preterm if he or she, is,
born before 37 weeks of
pregnancy. Until now, a
"term" baby was defined
as one born anytime from
37 weeks to 42 weeks,. a
few weeks before or after
the calculated due date. .
Now the American Col-
lege of Obstetricians aind
Gynecologists is refining (
the definition of a term
pregnancy to make clear
that even at the end of
the last trimester, -a little
more time in' the womb
can be better for a baby's "
health and development.
"Weeks matter,"'.' said

Builders of Obama's health



care website saw red flags


The Associated Press

WAS14INGTON Crammed into
conference rooms with pizza for
dinner, some programmers build-
ing the Obama administration's
showcase health insurance website
were growing increasingly stressed.
Some worked past 10 p.m., energy
drinks in hand. Others rewrote com-
puter code over and over to meet
what they considered last-minute
requests for changes from the gov-
. ernment or other contractors.
As questions mount over the web-
site's failure, insider interviews and
a review of technical specifications
by The Associated Press found a
mind-numbingly complex system
put together by harried program-
mers who pushed out a final prod-
uct that congressional investigators
said was tested by the government
and not private developers with
more expertise.
Meanwhile, the White House
Said that President Barack Obama's
longtime adviser Jeffrey Zients
will provide management ad-
vice to help fix the system. White
House press secretary Jay Carney
.says Zients will be on a short-term
assig'inmeit at the Health and
Human Services' Department be-
fore he's due to take over as direc-
tor of Obama's National Economic
Council Jan. 1.
Carney cited Zients' expertise as a
longtime management consultant
and his "proven track record" since
coming to theWhite House in 2009,
both as interim budget director and
as chief performance officer, when
he headed an effort to streamline
government and cut costs. "We're
engaged in an all-out effort to im-
prove the online experience".' Car-
ney said.
This is not the first time Obama
has turned to Zients for help solving
a major problem. In the 2009. after
far more drivers than anticipated
-signed up for the Cash for Clunk-
ers program that promised rebates
to people who traded in their old
cars for more fuel-efficient vehicles,
Obama assigned Zients, his deputy
budget director at the time, to help
eliminate the backlog. .
When the same thing happened
with sign-ups for an updated ver-
sion of the Gl Bill, one designed to
help the 9/11 generation of veter-
ans get a college education, Obama


THt^ A il.'T,,, l,, f H:, :':
President Barack Obama gestures while speaking in the Rose Garden of the White
House in Washington, Monday, Oct. 21, on the initial rollout of the health care over-
haul.,Obama acknowledged that the widespread problems with his health care
law's rollout are unacceptable, as the administration scrambles to fix the cascade
of computer issues.


again turned to Zients.
"He's not going to be looking under
the hood and tell you 'I can fix the
' coding, I can fix it,"" Kenneth Baer,
who was a senior -adviser to Zients
.at the budget office, said ofZients'
newest assignment. "His skill is go-
ing to be how to identify challenges,
prioritize what solutions need to*
be done next, assessing what talent
is already available and then how
to motivate them to do that job as
quickly and as ably as possible."
Aneesh Chopra, who was Obama's
chief technology officer, said Zients
is extremely skilled in figuring
things out from a management
perspective.
"Ifl Iwas confident this issue would
be resolved before his participation,
I am doubly so. now," said Cho-
pra, who also worked with Zients
at the Advisory Board- Co., one of
two business advisory firms where
Zients held top posts. "Jeff's track
record is really a relentless focus on
execution."
Healthand Human ServicesSecre-
tary Kathleen Sebelius said in a post
on HealthCare.gov that her agency
is also bringing in more experts and
specialists from government and
industry, including top Silicon Val-
ley companies.
'"This new infusion of talent will
bring a powerful array of subject
matter expertise and skills, in-
cluding extensive -experience scal-
ing major IT systems," she said.
"This effort is being marshaled as
part of a cross-functional team


that is working aggressively to diag-
nose parts of HealthCare.gov that
are experiencing problems, learn
from successful states, prioritize is-
sues, and fix them."
Project developers for the health
care website who spoke to the AP
Son condition of anonymity be-
cause they feared they wold oth-
erwise be fired- said they raised
doubts among themselves whether
the website could be ready in time.
They complained openly to each
other about what they considered
tight and unrealistic deadlines. One
was nearly brought to tears over the
stress of finishing on time, one de-
veloper said. Website builders saw
red flags for months.
* A review of internal. architec-
tural diagrams obtained by the AP
revealed the system's complexity.
Insurance applicants have a host
of personal information verified,
including income and immigra-
tion status. The system connects to
other federal computer networks,
including ones at the Social Secu-
rity -Administration, IRS, Veterans
Administration, Office of Personnel
Management and the Peace Corps.
Obama on Monday acknowl-
edged technical problems that
he described as "kinks in the sys-
tem." But 'in remarks at a Rose
Garden event, Obama offered no
explanation for the failure except to
note that high traffic to the website
caused some of the slowdowns. He
said it had been visited nearly 20
million times.

'Maria case raises fears of booming baby fraud


The Associated Press

ATHENS, Greece Pros-
ecutors across Greece were
ordered Tuesday to con-
duct emergency checks
of birth records from the
past six years, after the ar-
rest of a Gypsy couple on
suspicion of abducting
a little girl triggered
fears of widespread
welfare fraud..
The blond-haired, fair-
skinned girl, known as
Maria and believed, to be
5 or 6, drew the attention
of police during a raid on
a Gypsy camp last week
because she looked un-
like the couple raising her.
DNA :tests showed they
were not her biological
parents as claimed on her
birth certificate.
The mystery of the girl's
identity has attracted the
interest of investigators
and parents involved in
missing-childcases around
the world. The case has
also raised concern among
human rights groups that

Benefit fraud has become
a powerful issue in Greece,
which is suffering through
its sixth year of recession
and has an unemployment
rate of nearly 28 percent.
Most Greeks have seen
their income and pensions
drastically cut since the.
coufitry was bailed out in
2010.
Police spotted Maria
during one of dozens of
raids they have carried out
on Roma camps in the past
few weeks in a crackdown
on drug smuggling and
burglary gangs.
Police said Maria's birth
was falsely declared in
Athens by Dimopou-
lou in 2009, but they
did not elaborate. A charity
in charge of the girl's tem-
porary care said a dental
examination indicated she
is 5 or 6, not 4 as original-
ly thought. It is not even
certain the child was born
in Greece.
Her DNA has been en-
tered into an Interpolf data-
base to check for matches.


On Monday, the may-
or of Athens suspended
three officials in charge of
record-keeping after an
emergency review revealed
multiple instances of birth
certificates issued without
proper documentation..
In Ireland on Monday,
police seized a young
blond girl from a Roma-
nian Gypsy couple in Dub-
lin in a move spurred by
the case in Greece.
The couple said the 7-
year-old child was theirs,
but a Dublin maternity
hospital they cited had no
record of the.birth. No ar-
rests have been made.
Europe's top human
rights official said he is
worried about a pos-
sible backlash against the
Roma.
"Of course it is a dan-
ger," said Thorbjoern Ja-
gland, secretary general
of the Council of Europe.
"If a Roma family, a Roma
people are involved in
this, this should not lead
to condemnation of the
whole Roma society."


Hurricane

The Associated Press

ACAPULCO, Mexico
SHurricane Raymond
weakened to Category 1
STuesday and began slowly
drifting away from Mexi-
co's already storm-battered
Pacific coast, pumping rain
into a region tHat can't ab-
sorb much more.
Raymond was centered
100 miles from the'beach
resort of Zihuatanejo
Tuesday afternoon and its
winds had dropped to 90
mph, making it a Category
I 1 hurricane, down 'from
Category 3 on Monday, ac-
cording to the U.S. Nation-
al Hurricane Center.
But stung by the tardy re-',
action to the 'damage and
deaths from last month's
Tropical Storm Mariuel,
authorities were taking no
chances. Even if Raymond
doesn't move inland, it
could still bring floods and
mudslides to an area reel-
ing from more than $1.7
billion in damages and
about 120 deaths caused
byManuel.
The. government of the
Pacific coast state of Guer-
rero moved hundreds
of people from isolated
mountain communities
and low-lying shore ar-
eas. More than 1,500 army
troops were moved into the
area to be ready if needed.
Guerrero Gov. Angel Agu-
irre urged people to stay off
the road Tuesday because
of potentially dangerous
rains.
"The phenomenon's be-
havior is completely errat-
ic, completely unpredict-
able," Aguirre said Monday
night.
There were no reports
of torrential rains Tues-
day, but sporadic rains fell
in some parts of the state
and some streets flooded
Sin soaked Acapulco, where
city workers reinforced
roads with sand bags.
About 400 people were
evacuated from hamlets
around nearby Coyuca.
Schools in most coastal
communities west of Aca-
pulco, including Zihua-
tanejo, were kept closed.
Forecasters said it was
expected to follow an er-
ratic path over the next
day, possibly getting clos-
er to the coast, then turn
sharply westward and
head out into the Pacific
on Wednesday. But it could
still bring as much, as 12
inches (30 centimeters) of

Syria opposition under pressure to negotiate


The Associated Press

BEIRUT The United
States and Europe are
putting intense pressure
on the main Syrian op-
position group to attend
a long-delayed -peace
conference aimed at end-
ing Syria's civil war, even
though agreeing to join
the talks could irreparably
split the already- fragment-
ed opposition in exile.
The Syrian National
Coalition appears to be
\getting support from its
patrons in the Persian
Gulf for its demands of
key guarantees before it
consents to take part in
peace talks. Chief among
those backers is regional
heavyweight Saudi Arabia,
which is growing more
frustrated with its Ameri-
can ally.
SA meeting Tuesday be-
tween the Syrian opposi-
tion and 11 of its foreign
supporters, including the
U.S., provided a venue for
Washington to press its
case. But the coalition,
which has been deeply
frustrated by what it sees
as the West's paltry aid
for the rebellion, did not
bend. Instead, it pre-
sented a list of demands
that made the already-
slim chances of the peace
talks going ahead look
bleak at best.
The U.S. and Russia,
which support oppos-
ing sides in the conflict
that has killed more than
100,000 people,- have


'J FLORIDAN.CO..

JC_,FLOR IDAN.COM


been trying for months to
bring the Syrian govern-
ment and its opponents to
the table for negotiations
in Geneva aimed at end-
ing the war. But with the
fighting deadlocked, nei-.
ther the regime of Presi-
dent BasharAssad nor the
rebels showed any interest
im compromise, forcing
the meeting to be repeat-
edly postponed.
The idea regained trac-
tion after the U.S.'-Russian
agreement last month
for Syria to give up its
chemical weapons fol-
lowing a deadly sarin at-
tack on the outskirts of
Damascus on Aug. 21.
With the West threaten-
ing military strikes, Syria.
quickly agreed to the
deal.
The U.N. Security Coun-
cil resolution that en-
shrined that agreement
also endorsed a roadmap
for a political transition
and called for an interna-
tional peace conference in
Geneva to' be convened as
'' '


soon as possible.
. While the U.S. and Eu-
rope continue to press for
peace talks, nothing has
shifted fundamentally in
the conflict that would
prompt either the govern-
ment or the opposition
to negotiate. The war' re-
mains a bloody grind as'
rebels and government
troops battle, block by
block and field by field,
seesawing back and forth.
Assad himself cast doubt
Monday on the prospects
for Geneva, saying the fac-
tors that would help the
conference, succeed are
not yet in place. Speaking
to Lebanon'sAl-Mayadeen
TV, he said it's not clear
who would represent the
opposition, or what cred-
ibility opposition repre-
sentatives would have in-
side Syria.
The government has
kept its options open on
Geneva. Some officials
have said all opposition
groups should be rep-
resented, while others


have refused to deal with
those who called for for-
eign strikes against Syria
- which would rule out
the coalition.
Assad has stuck to one
point throughout: a refus-
al.to talk with "terrorists,"
the term the government
uses for those trying to


topple him..,.
For the coalition, which
is" riven by competing
factions, the stakes for
agreeing to go to Geneva
are much higher. Accord-
ing to veteran opposition
figure Kamal Labwani, it's
nothing short of an exis-
tential crisis.

Miami Athletics


Miami's NCAA saga comes to end


The Associated Press

CORAL GABLES, Fla.
- When the NCAA's long-
awaited decision arrived
Tuesday morning, Miami
athletic director Blake
James realized it was what
he expected all along.
"Fair," James said. "But
significant."
And final. The Miami-
NCAA saga is over.
More than 2'/2 years af-
ter former booster and
convicted felon Nevin
Shapirb contacted the
NCAA from prison and
began detailing his role in
rampant rule-breaking by
thoge involved with Mi-
ami's football and men's
basketball programs, the
Hurricanes got their fi-
nal penalties. The most
notable sanctions are the-
nine lost football scholar-
ships over three years and
one lost basketball schol-
arship in each of the next
three seasons.
A three-year period of
probation, which started
Tuesday, and some re-
cruiting restrictions are
also part of the penance.
But for the first time
since 2010, Miami's foot-
ball team currently un-
defeated and ranked No. 7
nationally will be head-


TH( t '.',/".ic'l.,' .. '.
Miami head coach Al Golden watches a drill during practice
Tuesday in Coral Gables, Fla. Miami's football team will lose
nine scholarships and the men's basketball team will lose
three, as part of the penalties the school was handed Tuesday
bythe NCAA.


ing to a bowl game.
"I want to. sincerely
thank our student-ath-
letes and their families
who, not only stood with
the University of Miami
during this unprecedent-
ed challenge, but subse-
quently volunteered for
the mission," Miami foot-
ball coach Al Golden said
in a statement released
by school officials. "They,
shouldered the burden,
exhibited class and exem-
plified perseverance for
Hurricanes everywhere."
Miami said in February
that it would appeal any


sanction beyond what it
had already self-imposed.
Over time, 'that' stance
,softened, and the Hurri-
canes are accepting what
the NCAA handed down.
No appeal is com-
ing, at lehst not by the
Hurricanes.
-None is coming from
Missouri basketball coach
Frank Haith, either. Haith
will miss the first five
games of Missouri's up-
coming season because
of what the NCAA said his
role was in the Shapiro
scandal, and said Tuesday
that "it's time for closure.


Three former Miami as-
sistant coaches got two-
year show-cause bans, in-
cluding Clint Hurtt, who's
part of the football staff at
Louisville.
"It's relief that we finally
have a decision," Miami
President Donna Shalala
told The Associated Press.
"It's been a long haul. But
I don't have any anger or
frustration."
The sheer size of the Mi-
ami investigation was un-
like almost any other, with
18 general allegations of
misconduct with 79 issues
within those allegations,
along with 118 interviews
of 81 individuals by the
NCAA's count. The, com-
mittee wanted to com-
plete its work within eight
weeks; it took more than
18 weeks between the end
of the Miami hearing and
the release of Tuesday's
decision, mainly because
of the staggering amount
of material that needed
review.
"This case is -among the
most extraordinary in
the history of the NCAA,"
said Britton Banowsky,
the Conference USA com-
missioner who chairs the
NCAA's Committee on In-
fractiQns, which handed
down Tuesday's decision.

Former Boston ace expects close World Series


The Associated Press

BOSTON Curt Schfl

Red Sox would sweep the
"bloody sock" World Series
of 2004.
He was right.
Now the big right-hand
er's former team is playing
the St. Louis Cardinals fo:

and he expects a mudc

Pirates
From Page 1B

"We're 'just fine-tuning
everything right now. A
game like this gives you a
chance to work on some
things. Even though North
Bay Haven has struggled,
they still score a' o16t of
':points and are a good of-
fensive football team, so
it gives us a chance io.look
at some more guys on de-
fense and see how they
'hold up?
:- The Buccaneers are aver-
':aging 20 points per game
-on the season and putting
up. over 300 yards of of-
fense as well with a virtu-
:ally even mix between run-
ning and passing.


The Pirates haven't been
nearly as balanced this
year, relying more heavily
on a dominant run game
led by speedy sophomore
Antwan Durn, who has
gained 1,046 yards' on
the ground and scored
13 touchdowns on over 9
yards per carry. ,
Junior Javarris Goodson
has also, picked ip 464
rushing yards .and scored
five times for a Sneads at-
tack averaging 292.5 yards
per game on the ground.
The two have made for a
pretty potent 1-2 punch so
far, but with Durrn's heavy
workload and Goodson
having already dealt with
an injury earlier in the sea-
son, Thomas said he wants
to make sure both are rest-
ed and healthy by the Ver-


non game.
"If we get the game in
hand, Antwan is coming
out," the coach said. "Of
course we want to make
sure we win the football
game, but when we get it
in control, he won't see the
field anymore. Goodson is
right there behind him."
The coach said there
could be opportunities for
young backs like Larry Hill
S- who moved up from the
junior varsity in last week's
win overWewahitchka and
took his only carry of the
night 68 yards for, a touch-
down Darius Raines,
and Devante:Pollock to get
the ball Friday and show
what they can do: '
SIt could also be a chance
to try to further develop
the passing game, which


has been mostly uneven so
far this season.
Junior Alphonso Brown
took over at quarterback
midway through the third
game of the season and
has completed '15-of-37
passes for 244 yards and a
touchdown.
That one TD was awfully
big, though, coming from
76 yards out in the fourth
quarter'against Graceville
for what proved- to be the
game-winner.
The Pirates have done
most of their damage on
the ground through the
last three games, rushing
for 286, 306, and 516 yards
respectively, but there is
likely to be more resistance
next week against aVernon
team that appears to have
the stoutest defense in the


district.
More offensive balance
may not be needed this
week, but it will almost
certainly be necessary the
following week.
"I'd love to work on
some passing stuff, but we
haven't had to lately. We
spend the same amount
of time in practice working
on the passing game as we
do the running game, but
when we get to the game, if
we don't have to do it then
we don't do it," Thomas
said. "But (the Yellowjack-
ets) do a good job at the
line of scrimmage'against
the run, so this will be a
good practice for us' this
week to see if we can throw
it around more. Doing it
in practice and doing it in


the game are two different
things."
Of course, the players
don't want to get caught
looking too 'far ahead
and come out flat Friday
against a lesser opponent,
something that Thomas
said his team has to be
wary of.
"We have done that.
We did it against Frank-
lin County, but I'm hop-
ing they won't," the coach
said. "We're going down
on Thursday and spend-
ing the night and making
it a, big adventure. I hope
that will give them a little
bit of excitement. It should
be a big crowd there' too.
Those things usually work
in your favor to get people
excited."

JACKSON COUNTY FLORIDAN + www.jcfloridan.com


THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
UCF quarterback Blake Bortles passes against Louisville on Friday in Louisville, Ky. Bortles
completed21 of 32 passes for 250 yards and two touchdowns, as the Knights won, 38-35.


New expectations come


with new rank for UCF


The Associated Press
ORLANDO, Fla. UCF
came into this season used
to being overlooked nation-
ally as it chased meaning-
ful attention in. a football
landscape that includes
three more tradition-rich
in-state programs.
Now, following an up-
set of a top-10 team, the
Knights must quickly get
used to a new life with a
target on their backs.
UCF entered the national
rankings Sunday at No. 21
inThe Associated Press poll
and No. 25 in the USA To-
day coaches' poll. It is the
Knights' first rankings since
the final pollsfin 2010.
SBut more importantly, at
its halfway point UCF (5-
1, 2-0 American Athletic
Conference) is now 'the
front runner to capture the
league's at-large berth to
the BCS, armed with a rela-
tively soft schedule the rest
of the regular season. They
host winless Connecticut
on Saturday.
"(The players) probably


thinktheyshouldhavebeen
ranked at the beginning of
the year," Knights coach
George O'Leary said Sun-
day, smiling. "But I won't
make a big thing about
that, because they know
the ultimate goal hasn't
changed. I keep waving in
front of them that it's to win
the conference. That's what
we're concerned about,
and wherever we end up in
the rankings if we win the
conference, it'll be great.
"But the conference
and to win the confer-
ence championship is the
No. 1 goal in this football
program .each and every
week."
UCF is 4-0 away from Or-
ilando this season, its best
road start in program his-
tory. The Knights chances
to secure the AAC's BCS
berth will come mostly in
friendly confines, though..
Four of their final six games
at home. ,
Also, with the exception
of Houston (at UCF on Nov.
9) and rival South Florida
(at UCF on Nov. 29), who


both are 2-0 in AAC play,
the remaining four oppo-
nents on Knights' schedule
are just 1-6 in conference
play.
The new attention and
BCS projections are all flat-
tering, sure, but it is not a
daydream O'Leary is par-
ticularly interested in en-
tertaining at this point."
"Not really," O'Leary
said.. "I spoke to the team
last week (and) said this is
a conference game and if
you win this one you con-
trol your own destiny. You
don't have to worry about
someone else beating
somebody; you just got to
take care of business each
week. The players under-
stand that. They really do."
The Knights are the sec-
ond-youngest team in the
country with only eight se-
niors, but have gotten lots
of leadership so far from a
junior class, that includes
quarterback Blake Bortles
and running back Storm
Johnson, who both came
up big in the Louisville
victory.


Gamecocks look



to upset Mizzou


The Associated Press
COLUMBIA, S.C.
- Steve Spurrier knows
while South Carolina
won't be the main at-
traction this weekend at
fifth-ranked Missouri,
he's hopeful that his 20th-
ranked Gamecocks can
drag themselves and sev-
eral other Southeastern
Conference East teams
back in the divisional race
with a win.
Spurrier said Tuesday
the Gamecocks (5-2, 3-2
SEC) could get back on
track against Missouri (7-
0,3-0) after losing 23-21 at
Tennessee this past week-
end. A South Carolina win
would also open the door
for the other East teams
like the Vols, Georgia and
Florida who trail the Ti-


gers by two games in the
division.
"We're not going to
get much attention this
week," Spurrier said.
"Like I told the team,
we're on TV but the na-
tion wants to watch Mis-
souri. They don't want to
watch us now after losing
a game. Maybe we can go
out there and show them
something, hopefully,.
so that's what we'll try to
-do." .
Spurrier said he and the
players, understand that
losing to the surprising
Tigers would knock them
from the SEC chase for
good. Linebacker Skai
Moore said the team
thought that may have
been the case when 'they
headed to the airport after
getting stung by Tennes-


see on Michael Palardy's
last-second, 19-yard field
goal.
Then they saw the other
league upsets Vahder-
bilt over Georgia, Mis-
souri topping Florida and
Ole Miss beat LSU and
realized they still had a
road map to the SEC title
game if they could play
well this week.
"We're confident that
we could go in there and
take care of business
this week," said Moore, a
- freshman. '
That was something the
Gamecocks couldn't do at
Neyland Stadium last Sat-
urday. The Vols took a 17-
7 lead into the half before
South Carolina seemingly
gained control with two
third-quartertouchdowns
to move in front.

Miles aims to play youth


without sacrificing wins


The Associated Press
BATON ROUGE, L_. -
,Les Miles figures it's dime
to start tinkering with his
lineups as LSU aims to
strike a balance between
winning and building for
the future: .
"First and foremost, it's
about victory, and that will
no't be overlooked," Miles
said Monday as the-13th-
'ranked Tigers, still reeling
from an upset loss at Mis-
sissippi, began prepara-
tions for its homecoming
game against Furman this
Saturday night.
,"Do other guys get more
snaps? You betcha," Miles
added later. "It doesn't
mean that we're whole-
sale change and it doesn't
mean that we're throwing
anybody out, but what it
does mean is some of these
young guys played well
enough to deserve playing
time, and they're going to
get it."-II
This week, in particu-
lar, probably would have
given Miles an opportu-
nity to get a better handle
on the future of'his pro-
gram even if LSU had won
at Ole Miss. Furman is in
the NCAA's second-tier
Football Championship
.Subdivision (FCS), arid the
Tigers will be prohibitive
favorites.
In discussing those who
may see more playing
time, Miles named backup
quarterback Anthony Jen-
nings; linebackers Kendell
Beckwith and Lamar Lou-
is; defensive back Rashard
Robinson; and offensive
lineman Josh Boutte.'
This Saturday's contest
is followed by a week off,
then LSU will visit No. 1
Alabama for a game that
likely won't be nearly the
high-stakes affair it could
Have been if the Tigers (6-


2, 3-2 Southeastern Con-.
ference) had beaten the
Rebels.
Because the Crimson
Tide (7-0, 4-0) easily re-
mained unbeaten in the'
SEC and overall last
weekend with a 52-0 vic-
tory over Arkansas, the
-'Tigers and another SEC
team would have to upend
'Bama by the end of the
regular season for LSU to
have any chance of repre-
senting the SEC Western
Division in the league title
game in Atlanta. LSU also
would need Auburn (6-,


3-1) to lose one Of its last
four SEC games.
Miles doesn't seem to
think there's much chance
of Alabama losing twice,
and conceded that the loss
to, Ole Miss left LSU "in a
lesser position than they
could be today, and they
recognize it."'
Still, Miles does seem to
think the Tide could tum-
ble at least once.:
LSU "has, the ability to
win and play against any
team remaining on our
schedule, and we need to
recognize that," Miles said.

Bowden returns to FSU


The Associated Press

TALLAHASSEE, Fla.
Bobby Bowden believes
the Florida State football
program is in such a good
place that he is return-
ing to campus two years
before he planned to be
back.
The NCAA's all-time wins
leader was leery of hang-
ing around the program
and wanted coach Jimbo
Fisher to have time to es-
,tablish his own identity
and foundation.
Bowden now feels that
time has come.
The third-ranked Semi-
noles (6-0, 4-0 Atlantic
Coast Conference) are
the reigning conference
champs, debuted at No.
2 in the BCS standings
Sunday and have a Heis-
man Trophy candidate in
quarterback Jameis Win-
ston. Bowden is no longer
worried about being a dis-
. traction to the team he led
to 31 bowl games, 12 ACC
championships and two
national titles.
S"Jimbo's got control real
good, now, and has estab-
ished himself," Bowden
said. "It's probably time for
:me to get back."


The former Seminoles
coach will attend a game
at Florida State Saturday
for the first time since re-
tiring after the 2009 sea-
son. Bowden, who said he
plan was to stay away for
five years, will plant the
flaming spear at midfield
as part of the pregame cer-
emonies before the Semi-
noles take on North Caro-
Jlina State.
Bowden wanted to. give
Fisher space after his
own experiences at West
Virginia, ,where Bowden
coached from 1970-75.
There was criticism from
fans after Mountaineers
coach Jim Carlen left for
Texas Tech. Bowden never
wanted to have that im-
pact on Fisher.
"I would get so many
people saying, 'Why don't
you do it like he did it?'"
Bowden recalled being
asked after replacing Car-
len. "Especially if you lost,
they would bring up his
name. It kind of caused
some hard feelings on my
part'I didn't want Jimbo to
go through that.
S"When you're following
"someone who's been there
for 34 years and that's all
people know I felt like I


needed to be out the dog-
gone picture altogether
Sand let them accept him."
Fisher has certainly been
accepted. He's excited for
the return of a mentor,
but acknowledged he still
feels the pressure of being
Bowden's successor.
"It's what's right about
the world," Fisher said.
"He made Florida State. He
was Florida State. That's
why we have this stadium,
the facilities. That's whywe
have academics, that's why
we have the school. That's
why we have everything.
"It's what's right for Flor-
ida State and it's great for
college football. I'm ex-
tremely excited because
he was my hero, too."
Bowden has been on
campus to teach a couple
classes and spends an av-
erage of two days a week
conducting speaking en-
gagements around the
"country. He still lives inTal-
lahassee, but the last time
Bowden was on the field
for a Florida State game,
he was carried off as the
Seminoles coach. About
250-300 former players are
expected to on hand for
Bowden's first game since
his retirement.


S. THE ASSOCIAfED PRESS
Bobby Bowden poses with the Paul "Bear" Bryant College Coach of the Year Award in Houston.
The Seminoles former coach will attend a game at FSU for the first time since retiring after
4he 2009 season. Bowden will plant the flaming spear at midfield as part of the pregame
ceremonies Saturday against North Carolina State.




A&M, Mizzou help



bust one SEC myth


The Associated Press

SThe question gets asked
,a lot by Southeastern Con-
ference fans -and it goes
something like this: "How.'
,*would (highly ranked
't6am) do in the SEC?"
SOften it's not even a ques-
tion, it's an assertion, such
as: "(Highly ranked team
not from the SEC) would
be lucky to finish .500 if it
played in the SEC."
Hypotheticals are one of
the foundations of college
football debates, because
so much simply can't'be
determined with certainty.
'And while we'll never know
for sure how Ohio .State
:or Oregon or Florida State
would do in the SEC, Mis-
souri and Texas A&M are
:showing the idea that top
'teams from other leagues
.would crumble playing
.SEC football is more myth
.than reality.
The Aggies and Tigers
moved into the SEC last
year. Texas A&M finished
6-2 in the conference in
2012, including a victory
,,against No. 1 Alabama. But
make no. mistake, those
Aggies were born in the Big
12.
While the school, Aggies
fans and the program's fu-
ture might have received
'a huge boost by switching
)conferences, the team was
,basically the same one that
went 7-6 the year before,
'with two major exceptions
- new quarterback, new
:coach.
Quarterback Johnny
Manziel came to College
*Station when Texas A&M
'was in the Big 12.
SAs for coach Kevin Sum-
lin, there's nothing to sug-
,gest he would not have


taken the A&M job if the
Aggies were still in the Big
12.
Missouri's first season :in
the SEC was a flop (5-7),
but Year 2 is turning out
to be a boon for the fifth-
ranked Tigers (7-0, 3-0),
another team that's Big
12-bred.
Missouri has signed two
recruiting classes since an-
nouncing it was moving to
the SEC in November 2011.
The Tigers' latest depth
chart lists 55 players on
offense and ,defense. Six-
teen are from the last two
recruiting classes, 13 from
what is turning out to be a
very nice haul in'2012. '

The "rolling of Toomer's Corner" came after Auburn defeated Texas A&M on Saturday, 45-41.


Malzahn leads Auburn


to huge turnaround


The Associated Press

AUBURN, Ala. Au-
burn defensive end Dee
Ford has visions of an-
other surprising national
title run.
Even if that proves a
stretch, the 11th-ranked
Tigers have risen from
a dreadful season to the
brink of the Top 10 with
an about-face that's
come with the rapidity
of the next play in Gus
Malzahn's no-huddle
offense.
A road upset of Johnny
Manziel and then-No. 7
Texas A&M vaulted Au-
burn (6-1, 3-1 Southeast-
ern Conference) 13 spots
in the rankings and made
the Tigers perhaps the
chief challenger to No. 1
Alabama in the Western
Division., *
Ford's ambition goes be-
yond that. Way beyond.
"I think we can win it
all. You know?" he said.
"There's no reason to say
that we can't. We said we
wanted to have the big-


V
gest turnaround in col-
lege football. Why not
win it all?
"But.we're goingto keep
getting better every prac-
tice, every game, every
week, and look and see
where it can take us. We
can definitely win it all if
we do that."
It would be an even big-
ger surprise than the Ti-
gers' 2010 national title.
Only this time there's no
Cam Newton leading the
way.
Aubuirn is certainly in
an unexpected position
after Saturday's 45-41 win
over the Aggies, who won
last year's meeting by six
touchdowns. ,
The Tigers have already
doubled their win total
from last season when
they lost all eight SEC
games, many of them in
ugly fashion.
Malzahn set about in-
stalling his fast-paced of-
fense, run by dual-threat
junior college transfer
Nick Marshall, and re-
peatedly preaching his


"it's a new day" theme.
His latest refrain, ut-
tered after most games,
Sis "We haven't arrived."
Malzahn trotted, it out
twice on Tuesday.
"You look across col-
lege football, the teams
that don't keep improv-
ing throughout the year,
it's relevant," Malzahn
said on Tuesday. "There's
a lot of ups and downs
and that's our challenge.
We've got to keep rolling,
take it one game at a time
and stay focused."
The SEC West is cer-
tainly within reach. The
STigers, who host Florida
Atlantic on Saturday, and
unbeaten Crimson Tide
are the only teams inthe
division with fewer than
two losses.
Auburn could be fa-
vored in every game lead-
ing up to that with road
trips remaining to Arkan-
.sas and Tennessee before
hosting chief rivals Geor-
gia and Alabama. Win
out, and they'll play for
the SEC title.

Animde's Mailbox


Dear Annie: Hlove my job, but I con-
stantly see favoritismi among the
management staff. One in particular
frustrates me. "Joe" was hired because.
of "what he brings to the table." What he
brings to the table is sitting at his desk
surfing the Internet, talldking to his friends
and family, and playing games on his
phone. In- the nieantime, the rest of us
are working hard and getting nowhere.
Why is it that people who pretend to
work are the ones who get promoted? It
just doesn't make sense. Are employers
really that blind?
I've tried talking to my manager, who .
does nothing, as well as human resourc-
es, which sends me back to the manager.
-I get nowhere. I don't want to come ,
across as a bitter employee or a tattletale,


Bridge

George Ade, a columnist and playwright who
died in 1944, said, "If it were not for the pres-
ents, an elopement would be preferable."
That is a distinctly materialistic attitude. In
bridge, though, you will get presents, especially
from defenders. And there is an elopement play,,
-it is featured in this deal. First, though, look
at the North hand. South opens two spades, a
weak twobid showing a respectable six-card
suit and some 5-10 high-card points. What
should North respond?
Second, how should South play in four spades
after West leads the diamond queen?
In the bidding, there is an instinct to head for
no-trump in the face of a misfit. But how will
three no-trump ever make? Even if East ducks
the first round of spades, North has only seven
tricks: one spade, one heart, three diamonds
(benefiting from the 3-3 break) and two clubs.
Instead, North should raise to four spades.
At first glance, it looks as though declarer will
lose two spades, one diamond and one club.
Butperhaps he can take 10 tricks. To be hon-
est, working out what to do in this deal requires
some guesswork. However, with this layout,
South can score his three low trumps with an
elopement.
-He wins the first trick on the board and plays
a trump to his king. When that wins, he contin-
ues with the spade queen. Suppose East takes
his ace and returns the spade 10. South wins,
plays a heart to dummy's ace, ruffs a heart in his
hand, plays a diamond to the ace, ruffs another
heart, takes dummy's top clubs, and ruffs the
last heart to make his contract.


but it is frustrating to see this type of be-
havior, and it brings down office morale,
causing tension and friction. How do I
make this stop? .
-WORKING HARD

Dear Working: If you have taken the.
matter to the manager and human
resources without result; there is noth-
ing more you can do through normal
channels. What's left is your personal
response. If you like your job and wish
to stay, you'll have to ignore Joe and
whatever his "table" lacks, in the hope
that someday he will be found out and
your hard work will be appreciated. Your
second option is to look for another job
where management takes these things
seriously.

Frazier defends decision to start Freeman
Frazmer. defends decision to 'start Freeman


The Associated Press
EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. Josh
Freeman's debut with the Min-
nesota Vikings was as ragged
as could be, a 20-for-53 pass-
ing performance that produced
no points on offense and raised
further questions about how
quickly he became the starting
quarterback.
Coach Leslie Frazier. expressed
no day-after regret. Freeman was
the right pick to play, Frazier said,
and the job is still his this week.
"If I had to do it over again, I
don't think I'd do it any differ-
ently under the circumstances.
I knew exactly why we made the
decision. I felt very confident go-
ing into the ballgame with the
decision," Frazier said Tuesday.
"It didn't work out for us this
time."
The Vikings (1-5) signed Free-
man less than two weeks prior
to his not-ready-for-prime-time
showing Monday against the
New York Giants, a 23-7 defeat
by a previously.winless team in a
nationally televised debacle that
had analysts, fans and even ex-
players mocking and criticizing
the quality of play by both teams
all night.
"This is the worst sporting
event ever broadcasted," former


S THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
Minnesota Vikings head coach Leslie Frazier answers questions at a press
conference in Eden Prairie, Minn.


Vikings left guard Steve Hutchin-
son said on Twitter during the
game. The retired seven-time Pro
Bowler was rarely that demon-
stradive during his career.
Frazier, whose hold on his job
has grown increasingly tenuous
this month with consecutive
drubbings, by a combined score
of 58-17 against the Giants and
Carolina Panthers, was doing his
best Tuesday to point out some
positives, encourage his players
and defend his decisions.
He said he never considered
benching Freeman, who threw
one interception and finished
with 190 yards, and said he was


under,"no obligation" from the
front 'office or ownership to play
him. The coach also said the
move had full support from the
players.
"We believed that he would
give us the best chance to be suc-
cessful in that ballgame," Frazier
said.
Christian Ponder, who had sev-
en turnovers over the first three
games, was the backup. Matt
Cassel, who guided the Vikings
to their only victory but followed
that up with two costly intercep-
tions in the loss to the Panthers,
was inactive.
Though Freeman looked lost


and overwhelmed, Frazier said
he believed the 25-year-old's
troubles stemmed from physical
mistakes and not a lack of under-
standing of the playbook. Of the
33 incompletions, many of those
balls sailed several yards away
from the target.
"His footwork wasn't ideal. His
shoulders weren't square all the
time. So it was more technical
stuff. But the mental part, he was
sharp," Frazier said. "He did a
great job of running our offense
throughout the night."
Freeman's failures were espe-
cially glaring given this update
distributed Tuesday by.the NFL:
the league-wide yards-per-pass-
attempt average of 7.29 is on.
pace to be the highest of any sea-
son since 1966. Freeman's num-
ber was a paltry 3.32.
The cumulative, NFL comple-
tion percentage- of 61.6, also
on track to set the modern-era
record, also cast Freeman's per-
formance in-a bad light. His rate
Monday was 37.7.
"There were definitely plays
there to be made that from a lot
of different standpoints were just
a fraction off," Freeman said af-
ter the game. "That's something
that, moving forward as a quar-
.terback, as receivers, as an of-
fense together, guys are going to


get more comfortable with me
and vice versa."
Jn addition to the. in-season
quarterback tryout, the Vikings
have been trying to develop a de-
pleted, inexperienced secondary
in a pass-driven league. Veteran
Antoine Winfield, despite his age
and own coverage limitations,
has been clearly missed by this
group. Safety Harrison Smith's
turf toe injury was a big blow,
too.
The Vikings dropped two rou-
tine-looking, would-be intercep-
tions that gave the Giants two big
breaks, one in the first quarter
during a long drive for a field goal
and another in the third quarter
right before a fumbled punt re-
turn set up the Giants for a short
touchdown.run.
Up next? Aaron Rodgers and
the Green Bay Packers.
"I do have confidence that we
can improve and get better, and
we can get better when we line
up on Sunday night at home,"
Frazier said. "They don't have.to
be mutually exclusive. You can
stay focused on what you have to
get done and develop guy and
win at the same time."
Owner Zygi Wilf told reporters
after the game at MetLife Stadi-
um he wasn't pondering changes
at this point.


Tackle McKinnie


joins Dolphins


'The Associated Press '

DAVIE, Fla. Bryant
'McKinnie came out of his
stance and lowered his
shoulder into a practice
squad player, causing a
crisp thud to reverberate
in the Miami Dolphins'
practice bubble.
"That's right," offensive
line coach Jim Turner Jhol-
lered. "Nice short first
step."
The Dolphins hope
McKirinie's arrival Tuesday
marks a big step in the right
direction for a team reel-
ing from pass-protection
problems. They acquired


EIUTDRUII '41


the 12th-year pro Monday
from the Baltimore Ravens
in exchange' for a condi-
tional late-round draft
pick. .. ,
'"He's a heck of a player,"
said tackle Jonathan Mar-
tin, whose role likely will
be affected by Athe trade.
"Anytime you bring in a
guy like lhat, it's going to
make you better."
McKinnie might not be
ready for Sunday's game
at New England, But bar-
ring sudden, dramatic im-
provement by right tackle
Tyson Clabo, McKinnie is
expected to move into the
startinglineup eventually.
