Former Fa. House speaker wantslegaees


The Associated Press
TALLAHASSEE,- A for-
mer Florida lawmaker is
trying. to get the state to
pay more than $800,000
in legal fees that he racked
up while defending him-
self against corruption
charges that were later
dropped.
Attorneys for former
House Speaker Ray San-
som told a judge Wednes- .


day that the state should
pay the tab because the
charges against the Destin
Republican were related
to his official duties while
he was in the Legislature.
The judge did not, say
when he would rule on
the case.
Sansom, who had been
the House budget chair-
man, was accused of
scheming to get $6 million
in state money to pay for


a hangar at the Destin air-
port for Jay Odom, a local
businessman and major
Republican donor. De-
fense lawyers argued the
money was for a mu6h-
needed and hurricane-
proof emergency opera-
tions center.
Sansom's 2011 trial
ended. when State At-
torney Willie Meggs
dropped the charges after
a judge refused to let a key


witness testify.
At the time, Meggs
said Sansom and' Odom
had agreed to reimburse
Northwest Florida State
College for money it spent
on the hangar project.
But Stephen Turner,
who is representing San-
som as well as the lawyers
who represented him in
the criminal trial, argued

Boeing soars on strong demand for new planes


The Associated Press

Boeing is riding a wave
of demand for new fuel-ef-
ficient planes from airlines
around the globe. Now the
trick is to build them fast
enough.
With a backlog of orders
worth $344 billion, Boe-
ing-has been speeding up
production of its big com-
mercial-planes. It now says
it will boost output of the
new 787 by 40 percent by
the end of the decade.

Jet fuel prices now are six
times higher than in 1995,

The speeding up of 787
production is especially
noteworthy because. at

whether Boeing would
even meet its goal of de-
livering 60 of the planes in
2013. Battery had to cease

Trustmark

profit rises 10

percent with

merger help

The Associated Press

JACKSON, Miss. Re-
gionalo bank Trustmark
Corp. says profit in 2013's
third quarter~rose 10 per-
cent from the same three
months of 2012, as the
company continued to
benefit from its takeover
of the former BancTrust Fi-
nancial Group.
Trustmark posted .quar-'
terly profit of $33 million or
49 cents per share Thesday.
That's up from $29.9 mil-
lion or 46 cents per share
in 2012's third quarter.
Analysts polled by Fact-
Set had estimated 47 cents
per share, on average.
"We had another quarter
of solid financial .results,"
CEO Gerald Host told ana-
lysts in' a' conference call
Wednesday. "'Revenue is
increased, credit quality
continues to improve and
'we continue to be optimis-
tic about our opportunities
going forward in all our
markets."
The bank set aside
$569,000 in anticipation of
future bad loans. The com-
pany actually recovered
more than it charged off in
the second quarter, but the
number was down from
last year.
BancTrust, of Mobile,
Ala., merged into Trust-
mark Feb. 15. Those opera-
tions added $4.9 million
to Trustmark profit during
the quarter.
The company said loans
increased' by $119.3 mil-
lion. Most lending areas
grew, but commercial and
industrial loans to busi-
ness fell. Fees from mak-
ing mortgages fell, but less
than at many other banks,
while fees on deposit ac-
counts rose.
Trustmark's return on
assets was 1.11 percent.
That key measure of prof-
itability is down from 1.22
percent a year ago, but still
'exceeds many 'other banks
nationwide.
. The amount that the
company collected im in-.
terest from borrowers, net
of what it paid out to sav-
ers, fell to $102 million.,
The net interest margin,
a measure of that spread,
divided by all loans, was
3.94 percent, down from
4.02 percent in the second
quarter. Low interest rates
have generally caused that
spread, which is a corner-
stone of bank profits, to
narrow.
Jackson-based Trustmark
has $11.8 billion-in assets
with offices in Mississippi,
Alabama, Floyida, Tennes-
see and Texas.

NY jury: Bank of America liable in mortgage fraud


The Associated Press

NEW YORK -Batik'of
America Corp., accused of
lying about the quality of
mortgages it passed along
to financial firms Fannie
Mae and Freddie Mac, was
found liable for fraud on
Wednesday in a civil case
the government said cap-
tured the frenzied pursuit
of profits at all costs juist
before the economy col-
lapsed in 2008.
.A Manhattan jury re-
turned its verdict follow-
'ing a monthlong trial
focusing on prime mort-
gages that Bank of Amer-
ica's Countrywide Finan-
cial unit completed in
late 2007 and 2008. U.S.
District Judge Jed S. Rakoff
said he would determine
on Thursday when a pen-
alty phase will begin.
The verdict was returned
against Bank of America,
Countrywide and a for-
mer executive, Rebecca
Mairone.
Bank of America, which
had denied, there was
fraud, said Wednesday it
was evaluating its options
for appeal.
"The jury's decision con-


cerned a single Country-
wide program that lasted
several months and ended.
before Bank of America's
acquisition of the compa-
ny," spokesman Lawrence
Grayson said by email.
Mairone's lawyer. Marc
Mukasey called her "a
model of honesty, integ-
rity and ethics."
"She never engaged in
any fraud because there
was no fraud," he said.
U.S. Attorney Preet Bha-
rara said the companies
and Mairone were "liable
for' making disastrously
bad 'loans and system-
atically removing quality
checks in favor of (Bank
of America and Country-
wide's) balance."
"In a rush to feed at the
trough of easy mortgage
money on the eve of the
financial crisis,. Bank
of Ameri'ca 'purchased
Countrywide, thinking
it had gobbled up a cash
cow," he said' in a state-
ment. "That profit, how-
ever, was built on fraud,
as the jury unanimously
found."

to quality as the economy
headed into a tailspin.
The government had ac-
cused the financial insti-
tutions of urging workers
to churn out loans, accept
fudged applications and
hide ballooning defaults.
Assistant U.S. Attorney
Jaimie Nawaday, in her
closing argument, said the
case was about "greed and

"It is about people'at
Countrywide saying to
each other that their loan
quality is in the ditch,
while telling Fannie. Mae
and Freddie Mac that their
loans are investment qual-
ity," she said.


. Fannie and Freddie,
which packaged'loans into
securities and sold thenqto
investors,. were effectively
nationalized in 2008 when
they nearly collapsed from
mortgage losses.
Government lawyers
said Countrywide tried to
churn out more mortgage
loans through a program
called 'the Hustle, -short-
hand for high-speed swim
lane, which operated
under the motto, "Loans

The government said-
the program eliminated
checks meant to ensure
mortgages were made
to borrowers unlikely to.


default.
"The Hustle is all about
speed, lightning speed
and volume and never
about quality," Nawaday
told jurors.
Bank of America lawyer
BrendanV Sullivan Jr. said
in closings there was no
fraud.
"We have been dragged
down the rabbit hole into
Alice inWonderland," he
said.
He defended the compa-
ny's practices, saying there
was a "vigorous quality
control program" that in-
cluded 20 workers in In-
dia who studied mortgage
files through the night for
flaws.

$29 Vault Bags loaded with nearly 100 year old

Gov't issued coins being snapped up


It's like a run on the
banks. The phones are
ringing off the hook.,
That's because Vault
Bags of rarely seen

ter pound of rarely seen

much these heavy Vault
Bags could be worth
someday. That's because
after they were filled with
U.S. Gov't issued coins,
the bags are now sealed.
for good," said Timothy J.

So it makes a real nice
stash of coins that will


'have value for your chil-
dren, grandchildren, or

spected, loved teacher,"
Blodgett said.
The suspect, Philip

Wednesday.
Prosecutors said in court
that Chism beat Ritzer to
death.
A court filing said Ritzer
and Chism were known to
each other from the high
school, but it did not elab-
orate. The arrest was made'
based on statements by
the suspect and corrobo-
rating evidence at multiple
scenes, investigators said
in couft documents.

how she mentored each
and every one of her stu-
dents," the family said in a
statement provided by her
.uncle Dale Webster.
At his arraignment in
adult court in Salem,
Chism's defense attor-
ney argued for the pro-
ceeding to be closed and
her client to 'be allowed
to stay hidden because
of his age. The judge'
denied the request. The
lawyer, Denise Regan, de-


dined to comment outside
court.
. The tall, lanky teenager
had moved to Massachu-
setts from Tennessee be-
fore the start of the school
year and was' a top scorer
on the school's junior var-
sity soccer team, said Kyle
Cahill, a junior who also
plays soccer. He said the
team had been wondering
where Chism was when
he skipped .a team dinner
Tuesday night.
"We're all just a family. It


just amazes me really," Ca-
hill said. "He wasn't violent
at all. He was really the bp-
posite of aggressive."
Ritzer had a Twitter ac-
count where she gave
homework assignments,
encouraged students and
described herself as a
"math teacher often too
excited about the topics
I'm teaching."
She was a -2011 gradu-
ate of Assumption
College in Worcester, a
school spokeswoman said


Judge orders


JonBenet grand


jury docs release


The Associated Press

DENVER A Colorado
judge Wednesday ordered
the release of the 1999
grand jury indictment in
the killing of 6-year-old
'JonBenet Ramsey, pos-
sibly' shedding light on
why, prosecutors decided
against charging her par-
ents in her death.
Senior District Court
Judge J. Robert Lowenbach
ruled that the indictment
signed by the grand jury
foreman constituted an of-
ficial action and must be
released Friday. A reporter
for the Daily Camera and
the Reporters Committee
for Freedom of the Press
filed a lawsuit to seek the
records.
In the ruling, Lowenbach
noted that district attorney
Alex Hunter prepared pos-
sible charges against John
Ramsey and his wife, Patsy,
three years after the death.
The indictment has re-
mained sealed for 14'years
* because Hunter decided
against pursuing charges,
but officials have never ex-
plained that decision.
JonBenet's body was
found bludgeoned and
strangled in her family's
home in Boulder on Dec.


26, 1996. Former District
Attorney' Mary Lacy said
in 2008 that DNA evi-
dence "suggests the killer
was a stranger, not a fam-
ily member, and she an-
.nounced.that she planned
to treat the Ramseys as vic-
tims of the crime. JonBenet
Ramsey's mother, Patsy,
died of cancer in 2006.
Earlier this week, John
Ramsey asked officials to
release the entire grand
Jury record if the unpro.s-
ecuted indictment was
made public. However,
the judge said transcripts
of grand jury proceedings
and evidence presented to
it are not considered "offi-
cial action" under the law
governing criminal court
records. He also said re-
leasing, such information
could hurt other grand ju-
ries, whose work is secret.,
An attorney represent-
ing John Ramsey, L. Lin
Wood, said he's confident'
that' no evidence in the
.grand jury case implicated
the Ramsey-family and the
public should be able to'
see that for themselves.
"Anything less' than the
release of all of the pro-
ceedings is a'gross injus-
tice to the Ramsey family,"
he said.


Crowdfunding to take a leap by seeking investors


The Associated Press

'WASHINGTON -
Crowdftmding is about to
go big time.
For years, filmmak-
ers, artists and charities
have used the power of
the Internet to generate
money for projects. But
in the coming year, with
the blessing of Congress,
startups will be allowed to
raise money this way by
selling stock to small-time
investors.
For those investors,
it's a chance to make a
small profit and pos-
sibly get in early on the'
next Twitter, or Facebook.
But it's also extremely
risky, given that a majority


of startups fail. And crit-
ics warn that investment
crowdfunding is ripe for
fraud.
The Securities and Ex-
change Commission on
Wednesday took a step
toward implementing
the law by proposing
how much people could
invest and how much
companies must divulge.
The SEC voted 5-0 to send
the proposal out for pub-
lic comment. Final rules
could be approved next
year.
Under the proposal,
people with annual in-
come and net worth of
less than $100,000 could
invest a maximum of 5
percent of their yearly in-


come.. Those with higher
incomes, could invest up
to 10 percent. Companies
could raise a maximum of
$1 million a year from in-
dividual investors.
Companies also would
be required to provide
information to prospec-
tive investors about their
business plan and finan-
cial condition,. as well as a
list of their officers, direc-
tors and those who own
at least 20 percent of the
company.
Crowdfunding is. hardly-
new. Sites like Kickstarter
and Indiegogo have for
years helped fund proj-.
ects through donations
raised online. Through
those sites and others,


supporters can pledge $1Q
- or tens of thousands of
dollars to help start a
project, be it a business,
.a charity or the arts. In re-
turn, supports can receive
a gift, such as a T-shirt or
a song named after them.
Or they can simply feel
satisfied knowing that
they helped a good cause.
But under the law en-
acted last year, busi-
nesses would be able to
offer investors a piece
of the company for
the first time. Fundfaising
over the Internet could be
a pathway to getting in
early on the next big trend.
Experts warn that nearly,
55 percent of startups fail,
within five years.

Boston Marathon suspect may pin blame on brother


The Associated Press

BOSTON Dzhokhar
Tsarnaev's lawyers may
try to save him from the
death penalty in the Bos-
ton Marathon bombing
by arguing he fell under
the murderous influence
of his older brother, legal
experts say.,
The outlines of a pos-
sible defense came into
focus this week when it
was learned that Tsar-
naev's attorneys are
trying to get access to
investigative records im-
plicating the now-dead
brother in. a grisly' triple
slaying committed in
2011.
In court papers Mon-
.'day, federal prosecutors
acknowledged publicly
for the first time that
a friend of Tamerlan
Tsarnaev told investiga-
tors that Tamerlan par-
ticipated in the unsolved
killings of three men who
were found in a Waltham.

throats slit, marijuana
sprinkled over their
bodies.
The younger Tsarnaev's
lawyers argued in court

tion" that is critical as they
prepare Dzhokhar's de-
fense. They asked a judge
to force prosecutors to
turn over the records.
Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, 20,
faces 30 federal charges,
including using a weapon


of,' mass destruction, in
the twin bombings April
15 that killed three people
and injured more than
260. Tamerlan Tsarnaev,
26, died in a gunbattie
with police days later.
The government is still


deciding whether to pur-
sue the death penalty for
the attack, which investi-
gators say was retaliation
for the U.S. wars in Mus-
lim lands.
Richard Dieter, execu-
tive director of the Death
Penalty Information Cen-
'ter, said the defense may
be trying to show that
the older brother was the
guiding force.
"If I was a defense at-
torney and was, seeking
perhaps to draw attention
to the influence the older
brother had in planning
the bombing, I would use
his involvement in other
crimes to show that he was
likely the main perpetrator
in'the Boston bombing,"
Dieter said.
"I would take the posi7
tion that my client, the
younger brother, was
strongly, influenced by his
older brother, and even if
he is culpable, the death
penalty is too extreme in
thiscase."
Similarly, Aitan D. Goel-
man, who was part of the
legal team that prosecuted
Oklahoma City bombing
figures Timothy McVeigh
and Terry Nichols, said the
defense may be looking
to ,minimize the yoing-
er brother's role in the

e July 22, wore a replica of an
intricate christening gown
- made for Queen Victoria's
, eldest daughter and first
t used in 1841.
When William was chris-

He arrived at the chapel
in his father's arms with his
mother by their side.
Kate,/smiling broadly on
her way into the chapel,
wore a cream-coloredAlex-

with her long hair brushed

his customary dark suit

Kate's parents, Michael
and Carole Middleton,
and her sister, Pippa, and
brother, James, were also
at the ceremony.
Pippa Middleton read
from the Gospel of St. Luke
and Prince Harry read from
the Gospel of St. John. The
two hymns were "Breathe

"Be Th6u MyVision."

their last respects in private
before her 1997 funeral.

Norway tried to stop


Kenya terror suspect


The Associated Press

OSLO, Norway Nor-

service tried to prevent
one of the suspected gun-
men in the Nairobi mall
attack from joining Somali
militants more than three
years ago, but failed to talk
him out of it, the agency's
chief said in an interview
Wednesday.
I The man has been iden-
tified in Kenya as Hassan
Abdi Dhuhulow, a 23-year-
old Somalia native whose
family moved to Norway
in 1999.
Norwegian authorities

arid had previously not
said whether they knew of
him before the four-day
siege of the Westgate mall
that killed nearly 70 people
in the Kenyan capital.
But Marie Benedicte Bjo-
eriland, the head of Nor-


wegian security service
PST, told The Associated
Press that the Norwegian
suspect was well known to
her agency and that it even
tried to dissuade him from
becoming ajihadist.
"We had several talks
with him ... .before he left
Norway more than three
years ago," Bjoernland said
at PST's headquarters in
Oslo. "Obviously, we didn't'
succeed, but there was
quite an effort put into the

Merkel calls Obama, takes

issue with surveillance


The Associated Press

BERLIN German
Chancellor Angela Merkel
complained to President
Barack Obama onWednes-
day after learning that U.S.
intelligence may have, tar-
geted her mobile phone,
saying that would be "a
serious breach of trust" if
confirmed.
For its part, the White
House denied that the U.S.
is listening in on Merkel s
phone calls now.
"The president assured
the chancellor that the
United States is not moni-
toring and wvill not monitor
the communications of the
chancellor," White House

greatly values our close co-
operation with Germany

However, Carney did
not specifically say that
that U.S. had never moni-
tored or obtained Merkel's

The German government
said it responded after re-
ceiving "information that
the chancellor's cellphone

The Graceville Tigers have endured
something of a rollercoaster, season
thus far en route to a 4-4 record.
They have looked-brilliant at times,
posting point totals of 55, 48, 48, and
-44 points in victories over Bozeman,
Wewahitchka, Freeport, and Jay, but
injuries and inconsistency have bit-
ten the Tigers in key district defeats to
Sneads and Jay.
Those losses have dropped the Ti-

control of their postseason destiny
out of their hands for the time being.

of the Sharks. "He's a real
big kid with a big arm.

a very good team."
Port St. Joe knocked off
Graceville 30-6 on Sept.

Heat looking for 4th


straight trip to Finals


The Associated Press

MIAMI Anytime an NBA
franchise is trying to do some-
thing only previously done by
the Boston Celtics and Los An-
geles Lakers, that's rarefied air.
That's what the Miami Heat
are trying to reach this season.
After going to the NBA Finals
in each of the past three sea-
sons winning the last two
titles the Heat now aim to
join an exclusive club. Only the
Celtics, from 1957-66 and again
from 1984-87, and the Lakers,
from.'1982-85, have 'made. at
'least four consecutive trips to


the championship series.
"It would mean everything,
man," said Heat forward LeB-
ron James. "First of all, it means
that I'm doing my part and I'm
helping our team get better. It
would mean everything to our
*team. That's what we're here for.
We work our tails off every day.
If it can pay off with another Fi7'
nals appearance, we'd represent
the Eastern Conference the best
way we can."

twice in last season's play-
offs, needing to prevail in

Heat.
From Page 1B

Game 7s to beat Indiana in the East finals, then topple
San Antonio in the NBA Finals.
Ray Allen's dramatic 3-pointer to save the Heat in
Game 6 against the Spurs will forever be the stuff of
highlight lore. They put together a 27-game winning
streak in the regular season a year ago, the second-
longest in NBA history. All that, the Heat say, is pretty
much pushed aside now.
"This has been a very competitive camp," Heat coach
Erik Spoelstra said. "Guys are in here, working, every
single day." I
They're doing so with a singular goal of winning it
all. 7
,"When you put this kind of talent together, there's al-
ways people on the outside trying to figure out ways
why it shouldn't work," Heat guard Dwyane Wade said.
"When you're on the inside and can put it together and
show them that it can work, it's a great feeling. For us
Sto be able to go to the Finals three straight times and
hopefully go again, what more can you ask for?
Here's five things to watch from the Heat in the 2013-
14 season:

DRIVEN WADE
The Heat guard knows he's being second-guessed.
Again. He's one of only four players to average at least
.20 points, five rebounds and five assists last year, but
knee .problems during the playoffs have led to him
fielding questions about his perceived decline. Wade is
going into his 11th Miami season, and it would seem
like there's a strong chance he could be in the Eastern
Conference finals for the sixth' time. With three rings
already, he's playing for legacy now.
-J BOSH'S ROLE: On the offensive end, it's usually quite
clear famtsis option No. 1, Wade is option No. 2,
which leaves Chris Bosh as option No. 3. He made,
his peace with it long ago, but his stated goal for this
season is to not play like a third option. Bosh says he.
wants this to be the best season of his career.

SHOOTERS ABOUND
Mike Miller a 3-point postseason hero for Miami
leaves through the.amnesty provision, and the Heat
'have-James Jones or Rashard Lewis or Roger Mason Jr.
to slap in his place. And that's with Ray Allen andShane
Baftier still leading the way as Miami's designated
sharpshooters, and with point guard Mario Chalmers
also a proven cpmrnodity from long range. Yes, losing
Miller makes Miami less deep on the perimeter. There's
still plenty of shooting.

AVOIDING BOREDOM
Don't look for the Heat to take the regular season for
granted. Spoelstra is fond of saying there's no short-
cuts, so it's pretty clear that Miami will not take the 82-
game regular season as just a meaningless stretch of
games before the inevitable playoff run.

LEBRON BETTER?
He's won four MWP awards, two championships, two
Finals MVP awards and he's considered the best player
on the planet. And yet every year, LeBron James insists
he can get better. Whether if's his mid-range jumper,
his post game, his foul shooting, James typically finds a
way to improve his game every season. If he pulls that
trick off again this year, the-Heat will become even big-
ger favorites to claim 'a third straight title.

Houston's Dwight Howard (12) blocks Indiana's Paul George during- a preseason game on Sunday in Taipei, Taiwan. Howard
says he's happy in Houston after ditching the Magic anid an awful season in Los Angeles.


Howard happy in Houston for now


The Associated Press,

HOUSTON Dwight
Howard is happy again.
He says he has put his
disappointing and drama-
filled season in Los Ange-
les behind him. He seems
ecstatic about joining
the Houston Rockets and
helping the young team
compete for a champion-
ship and 'maybe, just,
'maybe, he will return. to
form as the NBA's most
dominant big man.
"I'm in a better place
mentally, physically and
spiritually now," Howard
said.
His delight is evident
in watching him interact
with his new teammates.


He wears a broad smile
and fits of laughter are
common as he chats with
his fellow Rockets.
Howard spurned the
Lakers to sign an, $88 mil-
lion deal with Houston,
joining. James Harden
and a team that made the
playoffs last season for the
first time since 2009.
He' wouldn't get into
,specifics about the prob-
lems in his short stint with
the Lakers after he was
traded there in August
2012 from Orlando as part
of a four-team trade. But
most agree that he had a
strained relationship with
Kobe Bryant in a season
where he has admitted
that he wasn't having fun


at times.
The Lakers struggled
all season and was' swept
in the first round of the
playoffs. The Lakers could
have offered him a five-
year contract worth $118
million, but he chose to
make the move to Hous-
ton with a four-year deal.
"The situation in L.A.,
what happened is over
with," Howard said. "It
didn't work out on both
sides. So we have to move
on. It happens in everyday
life. People decide to do
different things with their
lives. It's just that when
you're NBA and at the top
of your game everybody
wants to know what you're
doing."


Howard lights up when
asked about his newteam-
mates and talks endlessly
about the fun they've had
in binding both on and.
off the court. When asked
if that' aspect of the move
was the most important
to him after last season,
his response was telling-
even if he wouldn't specifi-
cally address the Lakers.
"For any team to be suc-
cessful you have to have
a great environment," he
said. "You don't want to
work in a bad place."
"Dwight's a great guy,"
coach Kevin McHale said.
"Plays hard, likes to have.
fAm, so it's just been pretty
seamless to add him to the
team."


Finals format changed up


TheAssociated Press

NEW YORK David
Stern's NBA owners gath-
ered one last time, toast-
ing the outgoing commis-
sioner before he leaves
after 30 years on the job.
They also changed back
one of the earliest chang-
es Stern made.
Leaving with Stern is
the NBA Finals format he
implemented in his first
full year on the job, one
that alleviated travel con-
cerns but, critics felt also


gave an advantage to the
lower-seeded team.
Beginning with the 2014
finals, the higher-seeded
team will host Games 1,
2, 5 and 7. The lower seed
gets Games 3,4 and 6, fol-
lowing the same format
the NBA uses in all other
rounds.
The NBA for the pre-
vious 29 years has used
what's referred to as the
2-3-2 format, in which
the higher seed hosts
the first two games, then
goes on the road for three


straight.
The 2-3-2 format was
instituted in 1985 in part
to ease the amount of
cross-country travel with
the Celtics and Lakers fre-
quently meeting for the
championship. But some
felt it also worked against
the team that should have
the advantage.
"There certainly was a
perception ... it was un-
fair to the team that had
the better record, that it
was then playing the piv-
otal Game 5'on the road.


So this obviously moves
that game back to giving
home-court advantage to
the team with the, better
record if it's a 2-2 series,"
Deputy Commissioner
Adam Silver said.
The unanimous vote
to approve the 2-2-1-1-1
format came Wednes-
day during Stern's final
preseason meeting' with.
his board of governors.
Owners also voted to add
an extra day between
Games 6 and 7 to help the
players' rest.

Hornets.
It's a good deal of adversity to
face for a team with just six se-
niors on the roster, but Wise said
he hasn't yet seen any evidence
that his players are discouraged
in any way.
"Honestly; from what I've seen
so far this week, our team is still
hungry and wants to improve
and be better the next time we
play a football game," he 'said.
"But we've got nine kids starting
both ways and the bulk of those.
kids are underclassmen, so we're


trying to learn how to consistent-
ly play varsity football week in
and week out. We've got to have
a great off week and head into
next week and have a great week
of preparation because we're go-
ing to be playing a great football
team. It will be really important
for us to play well."
Cottondale is coming off of

It's a series that is never lacking

or postseason significance, but
the playoff implications add yet


another element to the rivalry
game.
"It's a big game. Obviously
it's a rivalry game and I know a
lot of these guys are connected
with each other or grew up with
each other. That in itself gives
,our guys and I'm sure their guys
some motivation to prepare and
play their best game," Wise said.
"They have playmakers and so
do we. It will really be one of
those games where we have to
play well on defense and execute
on offense. We'll try to get the ball
to our best players and give them
an opportunity to put points on
the board."

"We're a good team with-

us. When you lose some-
thing that big, it definitely
hurts your team. Curtis

Murray hopes


Gurleya 'fullgo'


The Associated Press

ATHENS, Ga. Georgia
quarterback Aaron Mur-
ray said Tuesday he Ile-
lieves Todd Gurley will be
a "full go" against Florida
in two weeks after watch-
ing the tailback run plays
in practice for the first
time since spraining his
left ankle.
Gurley is the Bulldogs'
leading rusher despite
missing the last three
games. Georgia lost back-
to-back games to Missouri
and Vanderbilt without
Gurley and dropped out
of the Top 25.
The Bulldogs are off
this week before playing
Florida on Nov. 2. Georgia
listed Gurley as "limited,
no contact" in Tuesday's
practice.
Murray said Gurley was
"beautiful as always."
"He looked good," Mur-
ray said. "... We've still got
another two weeks so he'll
be a full go by Florida,
hopefully."
The Bulldogs have lost


their other top tailback,
Keith Marshall, and re-
ceivers Malcolm Mitchell
and Justin Scott-Wesley to
season-ending knee inju-
ries. Another top receiver,
Michael Bennett, has
missed two games with a
knee injury.
Gurley wasn't available
for interviews on Tuesday.
Gurley rushed for 1,385
yards and 17 touchdowns
as a freshman in 2012. He
has 450 yards rushing and
four touchdowns in four
games this season.
Georgia (4-3, 3-2 South-
eastern Conference)
needs a healthy Gurley
to provide a boost to the
depleted offense. Murray
had Georgia's only two
rushing touchdowns in
last week's 31-27 loss at
Vanderbilt.
Freshmen J.J. Green
(shoulder sprain and
contusion) and Brendan
Douglas (sprained knee
and wrist), who have
filled in for Gurley, and
Marshall, were limited by
injuries on Tuesday.

Upsets prove SEC


*The Associated Press

GAINESVILLE, Fla. -
Surely some people are still
snickering at the South-
eastern Conference.
The big, bad SEC -'the
powerhouse league that
has won seven consecu-
tive national titles had
a stunning number of
upsets Saturday. Florida,
Georgia, LSU; South Caro-
lina and Texas A&M all lost
in league play.
All five had been con-
sidered national title con-
tenders before the season.
Now, they're looking for
significant help in the di-
vision race while trying to
.make the most of a disap-
pointing season.
Few outsiders are feel-
ing sorry for them, either.
They're rooting for top-
ranked Alabama to go
down next and pulling for
an end to the' league's col-
lege football reign.
Not surprisingly, SEC
coaches, players and of-
ficials *view' the situation


differently. They say the
upsets prove the league
has improved from top to
bottom more parity and
fewer patsies.
."It's no surprise to me
that there's a little bit of a
changing of the guard this
year," Alabama coach Nick
Saban said. "When people
talk about scheduling and
imbalances in scheduling,
they make the assump-
tions' that certain teams
are always good. We played
Tennessee for years and
years around here where
they were one of the best
teams in the SEC'.*.
"History says we have
a lot of teams in the SEC
that are capable of being
very, very good, and I think
you're seeing some of that
emerge this year."
Just days after the SEC set
a record by becoming the
first conference with eight
teams ranked in the Top
25, five of them dropped
games.

Missouri stands behind


Haith despite NCAA ruling


The Associated Press

ST. LOUIS Missouri
coach Frank, Haith was
suspended for five games.
by the NCAA on Tuesday
after it was found that he
inadequately monitored
his former assistants'
interactions with a I dis-
graced Miami booster and
then tried to cover up a
five-figure hush money
payment to keep potential
violations hidden.
The Committee on In-
fractions report also found
that Haith provided in-
consistent answers during
multiple interviewswith in-
vestigators, including' con-
flicting accounts of, when
he reported the shakedown
attempt by since-impris-
'.oned felon Nevin Shapiro
-to Hurricanes athletic di-
rector Paul Dee.
In a statement released
by Missouri, Haith said he
"strongly" disagreed with
the report "and the infer-
ence on how the program
was run at the University
of Miami" but won't ap-'
peal the findings. He told
reporters in Columbia he
plans to donate 18 days'
worth of his salary from
his suspension to the Boys
and Girls Club of Colum-
bia. His base annual sal-'
ary is $450,000, though he
earns a guaranteed $1.6
.million each year.
"I was truthful in my
,communication with the
,NCAA," Haith said. "If I
'wasn't truthful, I think I
'would have been hit with
.unethical conduct."
Instead, the two-year
:NCAA investigation found
that Haith, the former Hur-
ricanes basketball coach,
failed to promote an at-
mosphere of compliance.
Haith and Miami assis-
tant coach Jake Morton
provided Shapiro $10,000


THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
Missouri basketball coach Frank Haith was suspended five
games by the NCAA for infractions committed by Miami
when he coached the Hurricanes.


after he threatened to ex-
pose previous improper
contact with high school
recruits and amateur
coaches, 'the NCAA said.
Shapiro, now serving a
20-year prison term for
masterminding a $930
million Ponzi scheme, had
basketball season tickets
with a courtside seat and
had'donated an estimated
$500,000 to Miami. He de-
manded a large loan from
Haith after he experienced
financial trouble or the re-
turn a $50,000 donation
from a benefit bowling
tournament he had host-
ed. The coach refused.
Morton, who joined
Western Kentucky as an
assistant coach in 2011
but resigned in April as its
director of basketball op-
erations, then loaned Sha-
piro at least $6,000, which
he later repaid. The NCAA
also said that Haith helped
Morton and two other as-
sistants pay $10,000 to Sha-
piro's mother and "attempt-
ed to cover up the booster's
threats to disclose incrimi-
nating information."
Haith's statement was
accompanied by sup-
portive 'statements from
Chancellor Brady Deaton,
the university's top com-


pliance officer and ath-
letic director Mike Alden,
who also joined Haith at a
previously scheduled pre-
season press conference.
"After, all this time,
Coach Haith, his family,
the University of Missouri,
our student-athletes and
our fans deserve closure,"
Alden said. "I'm proud to
have Frank Haith as our
men's basketball coach."


Grambling football dispute


draws attention to budget cuts


The Associated Press

BATON ROUGE, La. -A
nearlyweeklong boycott by
the Grambling State Uni-
versity's football team in-
cluding forfeiting its game
at Jackson State has made
more people aware of the
campus's financial strug-
gles and drummed up in-
terest from donors around
the, country, Grambling's
president said Tuesday.
For its part, Jackson State
said its losses over cancel-
ing its homecoming game
Saturday could cost the
school and the city millions
and that it "plans to pursue
litigation'against Grambling
Stdte and others," which
could cause Grambling
even more headaches.
Grambling President
Frank Pogue told the Uni-
versity of Louisiana System
board that oversees the his-
toricall$ black college that
"it's a rarity for any athletic
team to come together to
abandon their commit-
ment to an institutionby


walking off the field. It's a
very unique experience.
But we're using this as an
opportunity of learning, a
teachable moment."
Pogue said he's used the
attention Grambling has
received as a way 'to high-
lightcampus academic and
facility needs and that the.
complaints lodged by foot-
ball players about inad-
equate facilities are symp-
tomatic of larger financial
troubles on campus.
The university, like all
public colleges in Louisi-
ana, has been hit with re-
peated budget cuts from
the state since 2008. Law-
makers and Gov. Bobby
Jindal have stripped $690
million in state funding
from higher education, a
48 percent reduction. Tu-
ition increases have only


partially filled the gap.
Pogue said Grambling's
state financing has been
slashed 57' percent, and
he said that fell'on top of
disparities in funding that
already exist across the na-
tion for historically black
colleges and universities.
"If you want to be help-
ful to Grambling, write a
check," he, said.
Grambling's players
staged'the boycott- which
is over now because of
many issues with univer-
sity leaders, including .the
school's rundown facilities,
long bus trips to road games
and coaching changes. The
players have returned to the
field and are expected to
play this weekend, but only
after forcing the university
to forfeit its game against
Jackson State last Saturday.,

Annie's Mailbvxa


Dear Annie: What is your'opinion on co-
sleeping? My husband, his daughter and
I all sleep in the same bed at night, and
neither my husband nor I minds a bit.
My husband loves it, saying he knows'
where both of his beautiful ladies are at
night and he doesn't have to worry.-When
we want to make love, we wait until his
daughter is not in the bed, orwe go into ,
the spare bedroom. What .do-you think?
-PENNSYLVANIA

Dear Pennsylvania: We think a lot of
this is up to the parents and depends on.
the age of the child. Often, pediatricians
do not recommend co-sleeping with'an
infant because of the slight risk that a
parent will roll over onto the child. Some
older children who co-sleep have dif-


ficulty transitioning to their own bed and-
'will demand to sleep with the parents
well past puberty. And some children
who are developing sexually can transfer
inappropriate feelings to a parent when
co-sleeping continues past a certain
point. (We will assume that neither par-
ent has inappropriate sexual feelings
toward the child, although this is also a
concern.)
What counts is that both of the parents
and the child are comfortable with this
arrangement, both parents are respon-
sible about the child's development, and
the set-up does not interfere with marital
intimacy. If you are the stepparent and
the biological mother is in the picture, be
sure she is in agreement. This is a joint
parental decision.


Bridge


Jeff Foxworthy, famous for his redneck jokes,
said, "The designated-driver program is not a
desirable job. But if you ever get sucked into
doing it,' have fun with it. At the end-of the
night, drop them off at the wrong house."
Bridge players drop tricks with wrong plays,
both as declarer and much more often
- on defense. Also, key-cards, can drop. For
example, you have nine cards missing only the
queen. The percentage play (just) is to cash
the acq and king, hoping the queen will drop.
In this deal, where is the drop? South is in
three no-trump. West leads the heart queen.
What should declarer do?
North used Stayman to try to find a 4-4
spade fit, then settled for three no-trump.
South starts with six top tricks: one spade,
one heart, two diamonds and two clubs. But
since the heart ace will have been dislodged
by trick two, declarer must take the next eight
tricks after that. He is faced with three finesses
- in spades, diamonds and clubs. Which
should he take?
The typical deal has only two finesses. Then
you should play for the drop in the' suit with
the greater number of cards (or more top
tricks). If the missing honor appears, fine; if
not, finesse in the other suit. Here, South has
even more chances. He should cash the four
minor-suit tops ending in his hand. If either
queen drops, the contract is home. Here,
though, neither appears. So South finesses
in spades, running the 10, then running the
queen, then playing low to dummy's jack.
Finally, something works.

QUESTIONS & ATTITUDE
Compelling questions...
and maybe a few actual answers


SPEED FREAKS
A couple of questions we
iust had to ask ourselves


Jimmie will decide
how many guys can
play Chase.


Is it now a four-man
Chase again?
GODSPEAK: Yes, it's the
"Fearsome Foursome,"
and Jimmie himself is
the "Iron Wall."
KEN'S CALL: If Jimmie
wants three others to
play, then it's a four-man
race.
What does the Tal-
ladega win mean for
Jamie McMurray's
future?
GODSPEAK: As "Big
Mac" watches teammate
Juan Pablo Montoya
pack his steamer trunk,
the win means a bit of
job security.
KENS CALL: Nothing
long term. Outside of the
Daytona 500, you can
say that about all plate
races.

INFORMATION




OVERLOAD


Much like M|aor League Baseball, the Cup Series
lends itself to a wealth of statistics. This one,
snagged ol the [JASCAR Wire Service, caught
our attention. When Dale Earnhardt Jr. crossed
the startl'inish line to lead Lap 34 on Oct 12 at
Charlotte Motor Speedway. he logged the one-
millionth mile in Cup Series competition since the
transition from traditional carburetors to electronic
fuel injection
Why no fanfare? The story said "it should come
as no surprise that the milestone was decidedly
under the radar, given that tne switch to EFI itself
has been smooth, almost seamless and virtually.
invisible."
The EFI was introduced in 2012 and hasn't
missed a beat, plus team engineers now have a
.cool factor" in the garage when they hook the
stock cars to laptop computers and search for
engine data.

SCENE STEALER
Aric Almirola stole a bit of the Chase spotlight
when he earned pole-position honors for Sunday's
500-miler at Talladega Superspeedway.
Almirola, who wheels Richard Petty Motor-
sport's flagship No. 43 Ford. earned the top
starting position based on opening practice
speeds after qualifying was rained out on
Saturday.
Almirola credited teammate Marcos
Ambrose, who drives the Nlo 9 Ford. with
helping him take the unexpected honor.
They drafted together during practice to
nail down fast speed.
The Tampa driver said RPM took Satur-
day's weather forecast into consideration before
heading into Friday's practice. The team realized
a fast practice speed could become important
if time trials were weathered out. They were
right
"We went into practice with a
plan, me and Marcos. and we got
a big run on the pack and put
up a good lap." Ambrose said. A -
"We knew that there was
a small chance for rain (Sat-
urday). However, obviously
under the circumstances we
thought it %vould be good to put
up a good lap just in case it did
rain we would be in a good
position. We had a plan and we
stuck to it and it worked out. so
that was good. Anytime you do
that and start up front under
any circumstances is good."

Seeing Pett/s equipment on the pole was a
nice respite Irom the Chase which is under such
intense scrutin'n' for 10 consecutive weeks.

OVERCOMING ADVERSITY
Michael Waltrip Racing is'redefining the term
'Overcoming adversity First, it was all about get-
tinrg two drivers into the Chase at Richmond In the
da,'s that followed the regular-season finale, the
team endured a firestorm of accusations of cheat-
ing and race manipulation. It not only cost Martin
True. Jr's place in the Chase, but cast a long
shadow on the sport's accountability.
True': s sponsor lAPA, decided to move out
after this season concludes.. Waltrip Racing an-
nounced last week it would be a two-car team,
with True' apparently heading to Furniture Row
Racing The team said it would reduce its work-
force by 15 percent in 2014 and the lo. 56 will
becorie an R&D car with Waltrip at the wheel.
Just when the team thought it had everything
sorted out, Brian Vickers had to be pulled from the
Vic. 5E. car because of a blood clot
fud in his leg. There's rio telling
len he will be back lor duty.

Jeff isn't condo shopping in the
Greater Martinsville area.

Martinsville, Va.? Is this really a
playoff venue?)
Our guess, is, the good folks in ham
country better enjoy their place on the
schedule. Once the new TV contract
kicks in, beginning in 2015, some
khirigs will probably change 7 in-
cluding the markets where NASCAR
settles, its championship. Martinsville
isn't likely to lose a race date, which
is good news, given how doses of .
true short-track racing are necessary.'
But a tiny market as one of the final
four stops on the championship trail?
Kinda like giving the Independence
Bowl a BCS date.
Is that a shot at Shreveport, La.?
Sorta. and for what it's worth,
Shreveport's population is about 16
times more than Martinsville. Listen.
we love Martinsville. But when you're
trying to lure big-market viewers and
sponsors.while competing with foot-
ball season, it's time to play hardball.
Speaking of big markets, $25 mil-
lion for Gordo?
According to real-estate records,
Jeff Gordon ".flipped" his Manhattan
condo for about a $15 million profit.
Bought it for $9.7 million in '07, sold it
recently for about $25 million. They're
not leaving Manhattan. he says ... just
moving across town. Green Acres will
have to wait.

FEUD OF THE WEEK


KYLE JAMIE
BUSCH McMURRAY
Kyle Busch vs. Jamie McMurray:
Busch says McMurray blocked him
from making a pit stop, which caused
him to drive through and pit again.
Godwin Kelly gives his take: "This Is
more of a minor irritation than a feud,
but these little incidents are becoming
a growing rash. Busch is bound to
scratch that itch by Homestead."
