Health fair draws 75 seniors

99-year-old:


Laughter, staying
active key to longevity
BY DEBORAH BUCXHALTER
dbWckhXLom

The Jackson County Senior
Citizens Center and the county
Agricultural Extension Service
teamed up with more than a doz-
en health-related businesses and
organizations to host a seasonal
health fair Tuesday at the Jackson
County Agriculture Complex on
Penn Avenue in Marianna.
The 'Fall Into A Healthy Lifestyle
Health Fair" was a big success, ac-
cording to the Extension Service's
Family and Consumer Services
Agent Mandy Griffin.
Roughly 75 seniors showed up
to soak in the latest health-related
information from vendors and to
lunch together after an hourlong
presentation on health matters.
Some topped off their healthy
meals with a naughty dessert-
cotton candy spun up on-site by a
chaplain at Signature Health Care
at the Courtyard, Darren Tucker,
and by company admissions and
marketing director Trade Land.
Sweet side dishes, when enjoyed
in moderation, can be an accept-
able indulgence for most as long
as a healthy diet is routinely fol-
lowed. Healthy eating doesn't
have to mean boring meals, the
offering suggested.
And banishing boredom is a
good way to keep yourself healthy,
said 99-year-old LauraWorlds. She

(foeron ~t.)


and several friends were among
those attending the fair. Words
said frequent laughter, staying
active, and spending happy time
with loved ones has kept her fit
and quick all these years. It's a rec-
ipe she recommends for others,
too. She said she also learned a
good deal at the health fair, things
that can help her put even more
life in her years.
Some of those attending the
health fair made their way to the
Covenant Hospice booth to get a
hand massage from Dorothy Sin-
gletary or Donna Meldon. Find-
ing such creature comforts is also
a healthy choice, fair organizers
pointed out.

Police: CSX construction worker


listed in critical condition after fall


From staff report
A CSX construction worker is in
critical condition after he took a fall
on the job Tuesday.
According to the Marianna Po-
lice Department, on Tuesday, Oct.
29, at 9:16 a.m. MPD, along with
Marianna Fire and Rescue and
Jackson County Fire and Res-
cue, responded to a medical
emergency at the railroad bridge
across the Chipola River. The
bridge Is functional but is still un-
der construction by a CSX railroad


bridge crew..
While working to weld catwalks
on the side of the bridge Tuesday,
a CSX bridge construction crew
member fell from an unsecure
catwalk, approximately 16.5
feet, to the ground below. Then
the section of catwalk he
had stepped on fell and landed on
him.
EMS arrived to treat the crew
member's injuries and stabilize
him for the Air Heart helicopter,
which transported the victim to Bay
Medical.


The MPD reports that at 2 p.m.
Tuesday, Bay Medical advised by
phone that the victim was listed in
critical condition.
Marianna police questioned wit-
nesses to the fall, and have found
no indication of foul play or sus-
picious circumstances. The vic-
tim's injuries have been listed as a
workplace accident.
The department says the investi-
gation will remain open until Bay
Medical staff can be more con-
clusive about the victim's medical
condition.

Local Toys for Tots chief speaks to Optimists


SpecWal to the Floridan
Tom Perry of the Toys
for Tots program was
welcomed recently as the
guest speaker at a meet-
ing of the Marianna Opti-
mist Club.
Perry a former Marine
and now retired law en-
forcement officer, told
the club of the program's
origin which dates back to
1947, when the program
was started by a Marine
Corp Reserve unit in Los
Angeles. The following
year there were 160 sites
in the United States and
today there are more than
670 that generated $34
million in donated toys
last year alone.
Locally there will be
some 70 drop boxes lo-
cated in area businesses

Our Opinion


Hunger knows


no season
F or people down on their luck or otherwise in
a tight spot financially, the holidays are tough
times particularly when holiday meal time ap-
proaches and the cupboard is bare.
Jackson County residents are fortunate to have an
organization that keeps such families at the top of its
priorities. With the efforts of its members and volun-
teers and the benevolence of the people of our com-
munity this holiday season will arrive with "a chicken
for every pot," so to speak.
The Chipola Family Ministries is always collecting
food for its pantry hunger knows no season but Is
now doing so with an eye to the holidays. The group
hopes our community will donate turkeys or cash
contributions to meet its goal of 400 turkeys to be dis-
tributed to needy families during the Thanksgiving and
Christmas holidays. The ministry can procure a turkey
for $15. Non-perishable items suitable for a holiday
meal are also needed.
It's a reasonable goal; considering the compassion of
the people of our area, we're sure the organization will
exceed its goal and have a bountiful stock of turkeys
and food to put on the tables of families that might
otherwise have a dismal holiday.
Consider making a donation; both you and the recipi-
ents will profit from the generosity.

When Europe talks,


the U.S. listens

There is a rich element of hypocrisy in European
outrage over disclosures that the National Se-
curity Agency was eavesdropping on the phone
conversations of world leaders, particularly our Euro-
pean allies and most particularly German Chancellor
Angela Merkel.
Merkel angrily called President Barack Obama and
was assured that she was not now, and would not be
in the future, a target of.U.S. surveillance. Apparently,
Obama has fielded similar calls from other leaders and
made similar assurances, although in some cases surely
with his fingers crossed.
Merkel is not someone the U.S. wants to offend. She is
the most powerful leader in Europe and generally more
than well-disposed toward the U.S. But as someone
who grew up in East Germany, whose government
spied on everyone, she should have been sensitive to
the possibility. And as a constant user of her ceflpbone
she should have known, and certainly her security ser-
vices should have warned her, that the U.S. was likely
not the only one listening in on her c6nversatiois.
Merkel called on the United States to rebuild trust
anew 'We are allies. But such an alliance can only be
built on trust." The White House and the State depart-
ment have their work cut out for them, with the first*
test being whether negotiations on a trans-Atlantic
free-trade pact can proceed, now that European trade
officials suspect that the U.S. already knows their nego-
tiating positions.
Certainly the revelations of U.S. eavesdropping show
the need for some kind of institutional restraint. Just
because we can do something doesn't necessarily mean
we should. The disclosures of renegade NSA contrac-
tor Edward Snowden have the U.S. sweeping up more
than 70 million phone records in France in one month.
What on earth are we going to do with all that? Absent
specifically targeted conversations, why would we even
want it?
The fuss likely will die down as revelations of Europe's
own spying surface. The French, for example, have been
especially aggressive in trying to ferret out U.S. busi-
ness and technical secrets. Italian Premier Enrico Letta,
whose nation's literature and theater are filled with
tales of agents and double agents, said, "It is not in the
least bit conceivable that activity of this type could be
acceptable."
Despite the indignation, much of it surely feigned for
domestic consumption, the NSA's excess of enthusi-
asm and intrusion should not be allowed to disrupt a
valuable network built up over time of sharing covert
information.
To elaborate on a U.S. public service announcement:
Friends don't spy on friends, but if they do, they~do so'
discreetly.


We need a few good men in politics to light the way


^ T A 7ha matters'?" It's a
jq question Charles
V VKrauthammer,
psychiatrist-turned-Pulitzer-
winning columnist, asks in the,
first sentence of his new book, a
membir-ish collection. The book is
called "Things That Matter: Three
Decades of Passions, Pastimes
and Politics." He explains.how
the working title for the book had
originally been "There's More to
Ufe than Politics" and was going to
include just about everything but
politics. Naturally, though, a man
who "left a life In medicine for a life
in journalism devoted mostly to
polltica" couldn't disengage.
Thanks be to God.
There is, of course, much more to
life than politics. But as Krautham-
mer points out, there Is actually *
no escaping politics. "Politics, the
crooked timber of our communal
lives, dominates everything." he
writes, "because, in the end, ev-
erythlng ... lives or dies by politics.
You can have the most advanced
and efflorescent of cultures. Get
your politics wrong. however, and
everything stands to be swept away.
This is not ancient history. This is
Germany 1933."
When we think that we are above
politics, that we dont need to get
our hands dirty paying attention
to who it is we are electing, or to
policy and pending decisions, we
are shirking a responsibility. Dis-
engagement is dangerous; engage-
ment Is our civic duty.
How do you get your politics
right? There Is a symbiosis between
right living and healthy politics.
Our politics reflect our individual
and community lives. Character
matters are political matters.
Cynicism about politics can be
seductive, as it is conflict and scan-
dal the media thrives on; it's often

the worst of It that we focus on. But
politics are necessary. "Politics is,"
Krauthammer writes, "the moat,
the walls, beyond which lie the bar-
barians. Fall to keep them at bay,
and everything burns.
"First and above all else," Kraut-
hammer writes, "you must secure
life: liberty and the right to pursue
your own happiness." The "glories
yielded by ... successful politics lie
outside itself. Its deepest purpose is
to create the conditions for the cul-
tivation of the finer things, begin-
ning with philosophy and science,
and ascending to the ever more
delicate and refined arts."
The alternatives, he says, are
"deranged Stalinist politics" in
North Korea, creating "a land of
stunning desolation and ugliness,
both spiritual and material." Or
"Taliban Afghanistan. which, just
months before 9/11, marched Its
cadres into the Bamlyan Valley and
with tanks, artillery and dynamite
destroyed its magnificent cliff-
carved 1,700-year-old Buddhas lest
they like kite flying and music
and other things lovely --.disturb
the scorched-earth purity of their
nihilism."
One beautiful Saturday this Octo-
ber. 15 men at St. Mary's Cathedral
in Fall River, Mass., were ordained
as permanent deacons in the
Catholic Church. They serve as her-
alds of the Gospel, commissioned
to "Believe what you read, teach
what you believe, practice what you


teach." Later that day, I was present
as Deacon Tim delivered'his first
homily, at his parish church of St.
Stanislas. He echoed Pope Francis,
who echoes the Gospel, in encour-
aging those in the congregation to
come to know and trust God and
His infinite mercy. Faith, he said, is
trusting enough to change your life.
Heaven knows the world could
use both mercy and justice, with
confidence in the truth.
We have a choice. Do we seek
and encourage the good in our
lives and, yes, in our politics? These
things our lives, our ethics, the
quality of our enterprises, our dedi-
cation to stewardship of the gifts
we have been given and men have
died to protect are intimately
related. We're free to disengage, but
it's really not a moral option.
"Campaigns and elections...
personalities and peccadilloes (are)
things that come and go," Kraut-
hammer writes. "Partisan conten-
tion that characterizes the daily life
of a democracy the tentative,
incremental, ever-improvised" are
political realities. But what are they
informed by? What'are we arguing
about? What are we fighting for?
What are we working toward? Who
are we? Who do we live for? These
are things that matter. Politics
without conscience and conscious
abandonment of politics are
recipes for civilizational disaster.
Politics aren't everything, but they
are inescapable. Wise engagement
makes all the difference. Men of
faithful dedication, living lives of
discernment, light thdefiWdc~bri-
munities and in the halls of powpr.

Sound advice should not be misconstrued


Not every fundamentalist is a
right-winger. Crackpot utopianism
and black-and-white thinking
infect all social, political and reli-
gious movements. Indeed, it often
appears that abandoning common
sense for dogma Is one of the main
concomitants of a certain kind of
liberal arts education.
Consider a recent bitter contro-
versy involving Slate's Emily Yoffe
and an angry swarm of self-de-
scribed feminist detractors. As
"Dear Prudence," Yoffe writes an
online advice column for that mag-
azine and the Washington Post. You
know, "I had a one-night stand with
my fiance's brother," or "my ex-wife
Is stalking me on Facebook." That
kind of thing.
I'm a big fan and a friendly
acquaintance. We had dinner in
Washington some years back
along with a mutual friend who
was In town on a book tour. We've
exchanged emails now and then,
mostly about her column. Unpre-
tentious, nondogmatic, skeptical
and compassionate, Emily's what
my wife calls "real people," her
highest encomium.
It's not necessary to agree with
Dear Prudence every time to see
her column as a useful antidote to a
Washington disease I call d'harden-
Ing of the categories." When you
read about the astonishing messes
people make of their intimate lives,
the wonder's not that the world's
chaotic, but that It's as safe and
orderly as It Is.
So anyway, writing under her own
byline, Yoffe took note of a number
of high-profile sexual abuse and
rape cases In the news-the U.S.
Naval Academy; Steubenville, Ohio;
and Maryville, Mo. and noticed
something elementary: "A com-
mon denominator in these cases
is alcohol; often copious amounts,
enough to render the young
woman Incapacitated."
Friends warned her against saying
so. "Talking about things women
can do to protect themselves from
rape is the third rail, they said."
Let's pause a moment to con-
template such an absurd situation.


GeneLyons

Warning college girls how not to be
victimized is contrary to crackpot
feminist ideology, which evidently
holds that vomiting into the toilet
while a football jock you met five
minutes ago holds your hair is an
empowering act.
Warning readers that fully 80 per-
cent of sexual assaults on college
campuses Involve alcohol with
victim and perp alike getting wast-
ed -Yoffe added that there are also
disturbingly frequent reports about
"shrewd and sober sexual
predator(s) who lurk where women
drink like a lion at a watering hole."
"Let's be totally clear," she wrote.
"Perpetrators are the ones respon-
sible for committing their crimes,
and they should be brought to jus-
tice. But we are falling to let women
know that when they render them-
selves defenseless, terrible things
can be done to them ..*. Thats not
blaming the victim; that's trying to
prevent more victims."
Yoffe added that there are many
things schools could be doing to
educate young men and women:
"Educating students about rape,
teaching them that by definition a
very drunk woman can't consent to
sex, is crucial. Also important are
bystander programs that instruct
students in how to Intervene to
prevent sexual assault on drunk
classmates and about the need to
get dangerously Intoxicated ones
medical treatment."
So sane and sensible, In other
words, as to be almost banal. Ah,
but that was until the avant garde
online thinkers caught wind of
Yoffe's offenses against woman-
kind. Writers at sites like Jezebel,
Feministing, and Salon alleged that
Yoffe had written "a rape denialism
manifesto."
I'


The Slate columnist had not only
"blamed the victims" of sexual
crime, but implicitly promoted
something called "rape culture"
- a catch-all propaganda phrase
like something out of Orwell's "Ani-
mal Farm."
Four legs good, two legs bad!
Girls good, boys bad!
Some of themake-believe outrage
was so over the top as to be down-
right comical. Salon's perpetu-
ally indignant Katie McDonough
- she'd recently written an angry
screed about a porn star, famous
for performing an anatomically
improbable act who was having.
trouble finding respectable work
in her Arkansas hometown basi-
cally accused Yoffe of writing that
"women deserve rape."
There was no obvious evidence
that McDonough actually read the
Slate article. For that matter, none
ofYoffe's detractors felt compelled
to provide a halfway fair summary
of her argument. To get the flavor of
this absurd episode, it's important
to understand that this is an es-
sentially dogmatic and ideological
dispute having almost nothing to
do with the visible world.
Unless, that Is, you can imagine
a professor of Women's Studies
actually urging her students to get
blackout drunk at frat parties.
Actually, Yoffe may have found
such a person. In response to her
original article^ she wrote, one
professor wrote that "to reiterate
the old Puritan line that women
need to restrain and modify their
pleasure-seeking behaviors is a big
step backward."
Meanwhile, out in the boondocks
where I live, it's reliably reported
that most people admitted to
hospital emergency rooms for
snakebites are intoxicated. Appar-
ently, booze makes them Insensible
to danger.
I do hope that saying so doesn't'
make me pro-copperhead.

Ja. consumer


confidence fell


sharply in October


The Associated Press

GAINESVILLE- -Flori-
da's consumer confidence
is falling sharply.
The monthly University
of Florida survey released
Tuesday shows the state's
consumer confidence
was 71 in the month of
October. That's on a scale
of 2 to 150 benchmarked
to 1966 at a value of 100.
The October figure is
down seven points from
the previous month and
shows the state's consum-
er confidence at its lowest


level in nearly two years.
Chris McCarty directs
the survey and said con-
sumer confidence was
already declining but
the partial shutdown of
the federal government
pushed it down further.
McCarty noted that
residents 60 or older were
among the most pessi-
mistic people who took
part in the survey. They
expressed concerns about
U.S. economic condi-
tions and whether it is a
good time to purchase
big-ticket items.


Prosecutors accuse Panhandle sheriff of cover-up


The Associated Press

BRISTOL, Fla. -A pros-
ecutor told jurors Tuesday
at the misconduct trial of
suspended liberty County
Sheriff Nick Finch that he
sought to orchestrate a
cover-up of
his decision
to intervene
in a gun case
in the small.
rur-al county.
But Finch's
Rinch attorney told
jurorsduring
opening trial statements
*in Bristol, the county seat
some 40 miles west of Tal-
lahassee, that the state had
little proof to back allega-
tions that Finch destroyed
or altered public records in
the case.
Finch was arrested in
June on felony charges of
official misconduct and fal-
sifying public records and
subsequently suspended
by Gov. Rick Scott. The ar-
rest followed an investiga-
tion by the Florida Depart-
ment of Law Enforcement
into Finch's handling of
the March arrest of Floyd
Eugene Parrish in a gun
case.
Authorities said Parrish
was arrested following a
traffic stop because he
did not have a concealed
weapons permit for the
.25 caliber pistol he had
in his pocket. Parrish left
the jail hours later after
Finch came to the jail with
Parrish's two brothers and
ordered that Floyd Parrish
be released.
Defense attorney Jim-
my Judkins asserted that
Finch's decision to release
Parrish from jail after Par-
rish had been arrested was
because Finch believed
the charges against Parrish
clashed with rights in the
U.S. Constitution.
"He thinks he was pro-
tecting and defending the
2nd Amendment," Judkins
told jurors.
Parrish, 58, testified on
Tuesday that he often car-
ried the gun on his own
property a large rural
tract in the southern part
of the county in case
he needed to alert his girl-
friend that he was In trou-
ble while he was working.
He said he kept the gun in
his pocket when he drove
over to his hroiher.s house.
Jurors also on Tuiesday
heard from the deputy who
arrested Parrish as well as
other people who worked
at the jail.
'I he trial which is
scheduled to last until
J hirsday will likely re-


voIve on whether or not
jurors believe that Finch
asked for and then de-
stroyed records connected
to Parrish's arrest. Some-
one also whited out the jail
log.
Assistant Slate Attorney
Jack Campbell said that
Finch made a decision to
destroy the records in or-
der to make sure that no
one knew what "truly hap-
pened" the day of Parrish's
arrest.
"The issue Is whether he
allowed a cover up or al-
tered the paperwork that
told the truth," Campbell
said.
But Judkins said testimo-
ny would show that it had


been common practice
to white out the liberty
County jail log in the past.
Finch, an Army veteran
and onetime police of-
ficer, won his election
as sheriff by less than
200 votes in November
2012. Previously, he ran
as a Republican in 2008
and lost even though GOP
presidential nominee
John Mc(An carried the
county.
The county's election
supervisor said that Finch
became a Democrat but
ran in 2012 with no party
affiliation. That allowed
him to bypass a heated
primary that included two

do not work and must be
amended, reviving the
politically charged gun
control issue a year ahead
of the 2014 midterm
elections.
But little besides politics
emerged from the ses-
sion, held in the Senate's
made-for-television hear-
ing room. Democrats who
hold majority power in the
Senate and are trying to
keep it supported Sybrina
Fulton's call.
"This law is an invitation
for confrontation," said
Sen. Dick Durbin, D-IIL,
who chaired the session. *
Republicans, led by Sen.
Ted Cruz of Texas, said the
matter should be left to
the states that passed the
laws.
"The states are do-
ing quite well ... without
our interference," Rep.
Louie Gohmert testified
to the Senate Judiciary
Committee.
Said Cruz: "This is not
about politicking. This is
not about inflaming racial
tensions. This is about the
right of everyone to pro-
tect themselves and pro-
tect their families." Cruz


It ASSOCIATEPRESS
WitnessesdudinfSybi Futon, mother of 1rayvon M rmin,
are sworn In before testifying before a Senate Jdicidary
subcommittee hearing on so-called "stand your -un Iaw"


made reference to statis-
tics which, he said, show
that blacks invoked stand
your ground defense in
prosecutions at least as of-
ten as whites.
Race and politics were
unmistakably woven
into the event and in the
broader public policy de-
bate. There's little willing-
ness in Congress to weigh
in on the laws of at least 23
states that have some form
of the policy. These laws
generally cancel a person's
duty to retreat in the face of
a serious physical attack.
Members of Congress
are busily engaged in their
re-election efforts for next
year's midterms, with 35
seats at stake in the Sen-
ate, all 435 seats in the
GOP-controlled House


and the majorities of both
chambers hanging in the
balance. Gun control is a
politically divisive issue,
more so in the wake of
mass shootings in New-
town, Conn., the Washing-
ton Navy Yard and more.
The 2012 shooting death
of Martin, 17and unarmed,
and the acquittal this year
of neighborhood watch
volunteer George Zimmer-
man stirred racial tensions
and sparked debate over
stand your ground laws
in Florida and at least 21
other states.
Martin's mother told the
panel that she attended
the hearing so senators
can "at least put a face with
what has happened with
this tragedy."
"I just wanted to come


here to ... let you know
how important it is that
we amend this stand your
ground because It certain-
ly did not work in my case,"
Fulton said, speakingwith-
out consulting prepared
remarks. "The person that
shot and killed my son is
walking the streets today.
This law does not work."
Lucia Holman McBath,
the mother of Jordan Rus-
sell Davis, Implored the
Senate to resolve the na-
tion's debate. Her 17-year-
old son was shot and killed
nearly a year. ago when
Michael David Dunn, 46,
allegedly opened fire on
a Dodge Durango with
four teenagers Inside after
complaining of their loud
music and saying he saw
a gun and thus a threat.
Jordan had been inside.
Authorities never found
a gun in the vehicle, the
Florida Times-Union re-
ported. Dunn's trial is set
for next year.
"You can lift this nation
from its internal battle
in which guns rule over
right," McBath told the
panel.
According to the Nation-
al Conference of State Leg-
islatures, at least .22 states
have laws that allow that
"there is no duty to retreat
(from) an attacker in any
place in which one is law-
fully present."


succeed, Backers of the
delay won an Impressive,
bipartisan 281-146 House
vote earlier this year on an
amendment to a spending
bill that would postpone
some of the premium in-
creases, But conservative
groups are, against the
idea, and top House and
Senate leaders have both
been silent about it.
Sen. Charles Schumer,
D-N.Y., a member of the
Democratic leadership,
predicted the problems in
the flood program would
be addressed relatively
soon. Rep. Bill Cassidy,
R-La., said he's met with
No. 2 House Republican
Eric Cantor of Virginia and
feels "maybe we can pull
this together." Cassidy said
Cantor "did not commit,
but he's at least open to
it, understanding that this
is an issue affecting many
middle-class families."
The flood insurance
program has long offered
below-cost rates for ho-
meowners in flood zones
and has racked up about
$25 billion in red ink since
its creation in 1968.
It has been criticized for
paying off homeowners
whose houses get flooded
every few years. The flood
insurance program collects
$3.5 billion in premiums
each year, but the Federal
Emergency Management
Agency, which runs it,
says $1.5 billion more is
required from subsidized
policyholders to put it on
sound financial footing
as required by last year's
changes.
The legislation requires
FEMA to conduct a study
about the affordability of
risk-based rates on hom-
eowners and directs the
agency to propose ways to
tackle affordability issues.

Grayton Beer Company goes

high-tech with new equipment


Special to the Floridan
Beer drinkers and brew-
ing enthusiasts across the
Florida Panhandle will see
their dream of a local brew-
ery come one step closer
to being realized this week.
After nearly 11 months of
construction, Grayton Beer
Company's South Walton
brewery will see the arrival
of its state-of-the-art brew-
ing equipment.
The nine stainless, steel
fermentation tanks will
hold as much as 22,000
pints of beer each and, to-
gether, offer Grayton Beer
enough capacity to brew,
the equivalent of 150,000
bottles of beer at a time.


In addition to the 18-foot
fermentation tanks, ad-
ditional vessels will arrive
to store and manage the
hot and cold water needed
to produce high quality
craft beer as well as a grist
case to hold the grain to be
added during the brewing
process.
"We have been look-
ing forward to this day
for some time now." said
Jamey Price, founder of the
company. "We are starting
to see our dream of an in-
dependent craft brewery
emerging here in South
Walton."
Grayton Beer is planning
to launch five new.beers in
the coming weeks, brewed


specifically to complement
the lifestyle of the Emerald
Coast. The craft beers will
be available In bottle and
draft in restaurants and
bars from Pensacola to
Apalachicola.
"Working with a great
team of brewers and the
finest available ingre-
dients, this high quality
brewing equipment will al-
low us to make beers that
drinkers along the coast
will truly appreciate," said
Shank, Head Brewer.
"Craft beer is growing
across America, and now,
in the heart of our com-
munity, Northwest Florid-
ians have a brewery to be
proud of." he added.

Dow closes at a record high


The Associated Press
NEW YORK Investors
drove the Dow Jones in-
dustrial average to an all-
time high Tuesday on ex-
pectations that the Federal
Reserve will keep its eco-
nomic stimulus program
in place.
The Dow rose 111.42
points, or 0.7 percent,- to
15,680.35; The Dow also
got a big boost from IBM,
which announced that
it would buy $15 billion
more of its own stock.
The Fed is in the middle
of a two-day policy meet-
ing at which it's expected
to maintain its $85 billion
worth of bond purchases
every month. That pro-
gram is aimed at stimu-
lating economic growth


by keeping borrowing
rates very low. The Fed
will announce its decision
Wednesday afternoon.
"The expectation that
the Fed remains clearly on
hold is the catalyst for this
march higher," said Quincy
Krosby, a market strategist
at Prudential Financial.
IBM rose $4.77, or 2.7
percent, to $181.12, ac-
counting for about a quar-
ter of the Dow's gain.
The Standard and Poor's
500 index rose 9.84 points,
or 0.6 percent, to 1,771.95,
its seventh record high this
month.
About half the compa-
nies in the S&P 500 have
reported earnings for the
third quarter. So far, most
are doing better than inves-
tors expected. Companies


in the index are forecast to
log third-quarter earnings
growth of 4.5 percent, ac-
cording to data from S&P
Capital IQ.

After 'snafu,'Jacikson reports to federal prison


The AssuciitodPiress

CHICAGO Former Illinois
U.S. Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr. entered
a North Carolina prison Tuesday
to begin serving a 2 1/2-year term
for illegally spending $750,000 in
campaign inioney on everything
from cigars to a gold watch a
day after he tried but failed to get
into the federal complex.
In an odd twist to Jackson's long-
running legal saga, the 48-year-
old had sought to enter the But-
ner Correctional Center Monday
but was turned away because of
"a snafu," C.K. Hoffler, an Atlanta-
based attorney who had accom-
panied the Chicago Democrat,
told reporters Tuesday evening.
"He was ready to pay his debt,"
she said during a news confer-
ence in Atlanta about why the
son of civil rights leader the Rev.
Jesse Jackson chose to report days
earlier than required. "The soon-
er he reported, the sooner he'd
be able to get back home to his
children to begin the process of
healing."
Jackson bid farewell to his wife,
Sandi, and two children on Sun-
day, in Washington, D.C., then
went to the prison in a heav-
ily wooded area 30 miles north of
Raleigh Monday afternoon. But
his attorney had to return hours
later to pick up Jackson when
prison officials called her and
said an administrative obstacle
would delay processing him, she
said.
Jackson spent the night at a ho-
tel, then reported to the prison
again this time successfully -
around 10 a.m. Tuesday, Hoffler
said.
Jackson, now Inmate No. 32451-
016, was in custody as of Tues4ay

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS FILE
In this Wednesday, Aug. 14, photo, former Illinois Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr., leaves federal court In Washington. Prison-
bound Jackson plans to sell his home In Washington to help pay $750,000 In penalties stemming from his sentence
for Illegally spending campaign funds on personal Items.


morning, said Bureau of Prisons
spokesman Chris Burke, who
declined to provide additional
dt-tails.
I loflfer said someone represent -
ing Jackson had let prison officials
know in advance of his plan to re-
port on Monday. "He didn't just
show up," she added.
Court documents were never
clear about when Jackson had
to report. In her sentencing or-
der this year, Judge Amty Berman
Jackson in Washington said only
that he would have to surrender
to prison authorities "no earlier"
than Nov. 1,
U.S. Rep. G.K. Butterfield, a
North Carolina Democrat, also
accompanied Jackson to the


prison Monday, Hoffler said. But-
terfield was quoted as saying in a
statement, "I am happy to report
that he is in good spirits, all things
considered,"
By quieily reporting, Jackson
avoided the crush of media that
swirled around other prison-
bound Illinois politicians. For
example, when Rod Blagojevich
reported to a Colorado prison last
year to serve a 14-year term for
corruption, helicopters hovered
above and cars filled with jour-
nalists trailed the former Illinois
governor.
But Hoffler insisted Jackson
wasn't seeking to avoid the me-
dia's glare.
Jackson's fellow inmates at But-


ner include Wall Street fraudster
Bernie Madoff and ex-Chicago
police Lt. JonBurge, convicted of
lying about police torture of sus-
pects, according to the Bureau
of Prisons. However, it's unclear
if Jackson will have contact with
them at the sprawling complex,
which includes high- and low-
level security sections.
The once-rising star of the fl-
linois Democratic "Party who
displayed such a fondness for
luxury, will have to. perform a
menial job behind bars; janitorial
work is typically assigned to new
inmates, the Burner guide says.
His life will be highly regimented,
including having to wake daily at
6 a.m.

maining challenges over

Officials confirm
Syria polio outbreak
DAMASCUS, Syria
-The U.N. confifrmed
an outbreak of polio in
Syrta for the first time in
over a decade on Tues-
day, warning the disease
threatens to spread among
an estimated half-million
children who have never
been immunized because
of the civil war.
The grim finding added
another layer of misery
to a brutal conflict that
has already killed more
than 100,000. people and
uprooted millions. The
aid group Save the Chil-
dren urged a "vaccination
cease-fire" to try to prevent
an epidemic of the highly
contagious disease.
Meanwhile, hopes for a
negotiated settlement to
the three-year conflict ap-
peared ever more distant
as Syria's President Bashar
Assad sacked a deputy
prime minister for meeting
Western officials to discuss
the possibility of holding
a peace conference the
latest blow to diplomatic
efforts to bring the coun-
try's warring parties to the
negotiating table.

AKHSHTYR, Russia -
Thucks rumble to the edge
of a gigantic pit filled with
spray cans, tires and foam
sheets and dump a stream
of concrete slabs that send
up a cloud of limestone
dust. Other trucks pile clay
on top and a bulldozer
mixes everything together
in a rudimentary effort to
hide the mess. This landfill
outside Sochi, which will
host the Winter Olympics
in 100 days, is smack in the
middle of a water protec-
tion zone where dumping
industrial waste is banned.
As a centerpiece of
its Olympic bid, Russia
trumpeted a "Zero Waste"
program that promised the
cleanest games ever, say-
ing it would refrain from
dumping construction
waste and rely on reusable
materials. But on a visit
last week to Akhshtyr, just
north of Sochi. The As-
sociated Press found that
Russia's state-owned rail
monopoly is dumping tons
of construction waste into
what authorities call an
illegal landfill, raising con-
cerns of possible contami-
nation in the water that
directly supplies Sochi.
In a letter obtained by
the AR the Environmental
Protection Agency in the
area where Sochi is located
told the Black Sea resort's
environment council in
late August that it had
inspected the Akhshtyr
landfill and found "un-
authorized dumping of
construction waste as well
as soil from excavation
works." The agency said
it fined Russian Railways,
whose Sochi project costs
billions of dollars, $3,000
for the dumping. It didn't
order the dump closed.

Protesters rally after boy killed by deputy

SANTA ROSA, Calif. More than
1,000 people marched Tuesday to
protest the fatal shooting of a 13-
year-old boy by a Northern Cali-
fornia sheriff's deputy in an en-
counter that sparked community
outrage and an FBI investigation.
Officers stood on rooftops and
others wearing helmets stood
guard at barricades that kept the
protesters away from the Sonoma
County Sheriff's Office in Santa
Rosa. ,
The protesters, .including mid-

in downtown Santa Rosa before
marching through the streets with
signs and hooded sweatshirts
bearing photos of the boy.
"Andy Lopez did not have to
die," they chanted during the
nearly three-hour, mostly peace-

were made.
Lopez was shot and killed Oct.

assault rifle.

The Marianna Middle School

claimed yet another champi-
onship this year. With Walton
defeating Malone in game one
of the conference tournament,
Marianna faced Walton in the
championship game last Thurs-
day. Marianna won in dramatic
fashion 39-14.
Marianna jumped out with
eight points in the first quarter
while holding Walton to just
two, then upped the tempo in
the second quarter. The team
posted 12 points to take a 20-7
lead into the locker room at the
half.

posting 10 third-quarter points
to take a 30-10 lead into the fi-

Lady Bu~lpups in scoring was
Shemeriah Spears in double
digits with 11 points, followed
closely by Majic McNealy with
nine points. Alexis Miller scored
six while Alexis Jackson was on
the board with five.
The win gave Marianna a 7-3
record on the season. Follow-
ing the game, Coach D'Leisha
Ephriam was very proud of her


team.
"We thank God for another
successful basketball season,"
Ephriam said. "Special thanks
to our administrators, Mr. Ed-
die Ellis, Mrs. Sybil Rivers, and
Mr. Hunter Nolen, for all of
their support and encourage-
ment this year. I would also
like to thank first-year assistant
coach Ms. Jeanette Scott, and
volunteers Sarah Moore and
Zae Henderson for all of their
dedication and hard work to-
wards our basketball program
this season. I consider it a privi-
lege to work with such an awe-
some group of people who care
about our students and want to
see them succeed on and off the
court."
Ephriam said the end of an-
other season has a bittersweet
quality.
"Although our eighth-graders
will be dearly missed, I look for-
ward to seeing them move on
and compete at the next level,"
she said. -its always a joy to
see our young ladies grow and
develop from year to year. Not
just as players but as people in
general."
The team will celebrate its
successful season with a bas-
ketball banquet in November.

Auburn surge


The Associated Press
AUBURN, Ala. Gus Mal-
zahn's offenses have always
taken off swiftly upon his ar-
rival at a school, just not quite
like whafs happened with the
Auburn Tigers.
The eighth-ranked Tigers
have been on a three-game of-
fensive tear Auburn couldn't
manage even when Cam New-
ton was powering the 2010
team to the national champi-
onship with Malzahn as offen-
sive coordinator.
Auburn (7-1, 4-1 Southeast-
ern Conference) has produced
one of the programs 12 high-
est yardage totals in each of the
past three games, averaging 652
yards during the stretch with
no Heisman Trophy candidate
or big star leading the way The
Tigers, who had never gained
600 yards three times in a sea-
son, visit Arkansas (3-5,,0-4) on
Saturday.
The Tigers have key additions
like quarterback Nick Marshall
and tailback Cameron Artis-
Payne, but perhaps the biggest
newcomer was Malzahn and his
hurry-up, no-huddle offense.
"I think guys (are) just playing
harder, and actually believing
in the coaches and having trust
in the coaches," said tailback
Corey Grant, who has gone
from benchwarmer to big-play
threat in a deep backfield.
The first-year turnaround
is nothing new. Malzahn's of-
fenses as coordinator at Arkan-
sas, Tulsa and Auburn climbed
an average of 53 spots In the
national rankings In scoring of-
fense, 49 In total yards and 19
In rushing yards In his initial
season.


Auburn's rise has made that
look like chump change. The
Tigers' surprising climb into
SEC championship contention
has been spearheaded by an of-
fense that has jumped 85 spots
nationally in scoring, 102 in to-
tal and 73 in rushing.
The Tigers struggled badly
during a one-season switch to
a pro-style offense under co-
ordinator Scot Loeffler, now at
Virginia Tech. Now, Malzahn
is back, and the numbers are
surging again.
"Gus has got an extremely
unique package that they're
obviously grasping very, very
well," Razorbacks coach Bret
Bielema said. 'And they've got
players that fit Into It. I think
their execution has gotten bet-
ter every game."
Marshall's passing numbers
have only been decent, with
six touchdowns against four
Interceptions.
, Malzahn said. Tuesday he's
"day to day" for the game with a
right, throwing shoulder Injury
but the quarterback did -prac-
tice Sunday.
Marshall Is a key part of the
nation's fifth-best ground game,
with 461 yards and five touch-
downs despite missing all of
one game and most of another

"They're No. 1 in the SEC in
rushing the football," Bielema
said. "He's a valuable part of
that, whether It's a read-zone
or a quarterback run game
or he makes the right call on
where the ball needs to be
handed off. And, he's very effi-
cient. I think he's gotten better

Tough Test Ahead

Sneads tries to shake off bad performance, get ready for Vernon


BY DUSTIN KENT
.Jrrillibofj'0din Cdinn
After slogging their way through a turnover-
strewn, sloppy 14-13 road victory over the
North Bay Haven Buccaneers, the Sneads Pi-
rates (4-3) will look to regroup before playing
the biggest game of their season Friday night
against Vernon (5-3).
Sneads will play host to Vernon in a game that
can punch the Pirates' postseason ticket for the
first time in a decade, or can result in another
missed opportunity and yet another playoffs
spent at home.
The stakes couldn't'be much greater for the
Pirates, and they will need a much better effort
to come out with a victory than was required
last week when they turned the ball over seven
times and needed a blocked extra point in the
second half to hold on.
"I think the problem with the game was we
were looking past it before we ever played it,
but it may have been a blessing for .us with all
the turnovers," Sneads coach Bill Thomas said.
"You preach about it over and over to the kids


that you're good enough to beat anybody, but
bad enough to lose to anybody. Hopefully we
saw how Important (protecting the football) is
and hopefully thaLwon't be a big issue in this
game because of learning a good lesson from
the last game. If we get anything out of that
game, I hope that's it."
The 14 points for the Pirates marked their
lowest offensive total of the season after scor-
ing 20 or more points in each of their first six
games.
They'll need perhaps their best offensive ef-
fort of the year to be able to win Friday against
a Vernon defense that may be the stoutest that
Sneads has faced all season.
Vernon has given up just 11.6 points per game
this year and has allowed only 15 total points
in its three district victories over Cottondale,
Graceville, and Wewahitchka.
Given how stingy the Yellowjackets' defense
has been, Thomas said it's imperative that his
team not get into an early hole and be forced to

COLUMBIA, S.C. Steve

saidL "It's history, it's in the
record books and now we
have to try to play our best

Tennessee (4-4, 1-3 SEC)
plays at No. 10 Missouri
(7-1,3-1).
"We were engaged in a
great recruiting battle,"
Jones said. "Maty Mauks
a winner. He's the son
of a football coach, so
he's a gym rat. He grew
up with a football in his
hand since the day he was
born. I said ieds a win-
ner, and he's a playmaker.
He's a very, very talented
quarterback."
Mauk has started Mis-
souri's last two games in
place of James Franklin,
who sprained his right
shoulder OcL 12 in a 41-26
victoryoverGeorgia. Mauk
remains atop the depth
chart this week, though
Missouri coach Gary Pin-
kel hasn't ruled out the
possibility that Franklin
could return soon enough
to start Saturday.'
"I won't say (Franklin's
status) is doubtful, but it
is questionable," Pinkel
said.
If Franklin can't play,
Mauk will work against a
Tennessee coaching staff
he knows very well Jones,
defensive coordinator
John Jancek, defensive
line coach Steve Strip-
ling, offensive coordina-
tor Mike Bajakian, tight
ends/special teams coach
Mark Elder and offensive
line coach Don Mahoney
were all at Cincinnati
when Mauk was consid-
ering the Bearcats.

make up a big deficit.
"Vernon is a tough team.
You don't want to let them
get to 21. You look at them
all year long; if they get
to 21, they've won," he
said. "They're loaded with
seniors and they're well-
coached. When coach
(Bobby) Johns- came in
there, his big things was to
get the defense the way he
wants it and to change the
philosophy there. They've
done a great job with that
defense, and now the of-
fense is starting to catch
up, and their experience is
starting to show."
Only Chipley ,and West
Gadsden have topped 20
points against Vernon this
season, and the Yellow-
jackets' offense has shown
a spark In recent weeks by
scoring 51 points against
Holmes County on Oct. 11
and 55 in last week's shut-
out win over Wewahitchka.
"Their offense fits very
good with their defense,"
Thomas said. "It looks
like they don't put a lot of
points on the board, but
they keep the ball in their
hands for a long tifqe and
eat up the clock. They
move It well and keep win-
ning field position and
keep pinning you back and
letting their defense come
after you. If you make mis-
Jtakes, they've got great skill


kids and they will make you
pay for it. That's probably
where they've improved
the most over the last three
weeks is on offense."
But it's still the defense
that has done the heavy
lifting in the biggest games
for Vernon, limiting Cot-
tondale and Graceville to
single-digit scoring outputs
after the Hornets and Tigers
scored 30 and 23 points re-
spectively against Sneads.
The ability to shut down
the running game has been
key for Vernon,,but Sneads
comes in with a high-pow-
ered rushing attack led by
sophomore Antwan Dum
and junior Javarris Good-
son that is averaging over
300 yards per game.
"(Veron's) defensive
front four is really good, as
good as any we've seen this
year. It's a good matchup
because what we're best
at is running the football
and what they're best at
is stopping the run," the
coach said. "It all depends
on who winq that battle
right there. Will dur offen-
sive line win, or will their
defensive line win? That's
what It boils down to. If
we're good enough to win
that battle, then we can
win the game. If not, then
we're In for a long night."
If the Pirates can win,
they will assure them-
selves of at least a three-
way shootout with Vernon
and Cottondale should the
Hornets beat Graceville
on Friday, and a win and


a CHS loss would put the
Pirates straight through to
the playoffs.
Sneads can-still get into
a three-way shootout for
second with a loss should
Graceville beat Cotton-
dale, but a loss combined
with a Hornets win would
eliminate the Pirates from
playoff contention.
That would be a crushing
end to a season of hope for
the Pirates, who are look-
ing to get back to the play-
offs for the first time since
the 2003 season.
Breaking that string Is
a regular topic of con-
versation at Sneads High
School, with Thomas say-


ing that he and his players
are embracing the oppor-
tunity to make history for
the program.
"We talk about it every
day. We started the year
talking about it," the coach
said. "It's a growing pro-
cess. We're going to get
this community to where
we're expecting to be in the
playoffs every year. Some
senior class Is going to get
to say 'we're the first to
put us back in there' and
that's how we've looked at
it. Somebody will get to say
that. Will it be this year's
seniors? We don't know
yet, but somebody will get
a chance to say that."

Jones, Mauk



have a history


pect who set national high
school records for career
yards passing (18,932),
touchdown passes (219),
completions (1,353) and
total yards (22,681). One
year earlier, Cincinnati
signed Max Morrison,
who caught 142 passes for
2,033 yards his senior sea-
son as Mauk's good friend
and Kenton teammate.
"Those guys recruited
me real hard," Mauk said,
"They were always at the
school. I have a lot of re-
spect for them. It's going
to be a fun week prepar-
ing for them."
Jones' background with
Mauk through the re-
cruiting process also gives
the Vols an idea of what to
expect from the Missouri
quarterback.
"The thing that con-
cerns me most about him
is that he's able to impro-
vise," Jones said. "He's
able to take a baad play
and turn it into a big play.
He's able to scramble and
move around. He throws
exceptionally well out of
the pocket, and he's got
a little bit of swagger to
him. That's Maty Mauk."
Mauk has produced
mixed results since taking
over for Franklin.
In his first start, Mauk
threw for 295 yards and
a touchdown and also
ran for a score to lead the
Tigers to a 36-17 victory
over Florida. Last. week,
Mauk went 10 of 25 for
249 yards in a 27-24 dou-
ble-overtime loss to No.
14 South Carolina.
"He probably didn't play
quite as well as he would
like in this game," Mis-
souri offensive coordina-
tor Josh Henson said. "And
everybody's talking about
thaL It's just experience.
He'll get better as experi-
ence goes. And the more
experience he gets, he'll
play better and better."
Mauk's accuracy has
been an issue. He has
completed just 49.3 per-
cent of his passes for 585
yards with two touch-
downs and two intercep-
tions. Franklin has com-
pleted 67.7 percent of his
passes.
But Jones doesn't need
to look at a stat sheet
to understand Mauk's
abilities.
"He's a winner," Jones
said, "and he makes
plays."

When heckling turns to hate

Fans turning to social media to voice displeasure with college athletes


The Assoaated Press

LINCOLN, Neb. Col-
lege coaches and admin-
istrators concerned about
their tweeting athletes also
should be wary of their
tweeting fans.
Social media experts
pointed to vitriolic mes-
sages directed at football
players from Missouri and
Nebraska last weekend as
examples of why schools
should counsel athletes on
how to cope with criticism
that crosses the line from
heckling to hate.
'What I worry about is
some of the psychologi-
cal outcomes. Does it lead
to decreased self-esteem?
Does it lead to depres-
sion? Does it lead to guys
not eating and sleeping
right?" said Jimmy Sander-
son, a Clemson researcher
who collaborated on a
2012 study of how college
athletes react to negative
encounters with fans on
social media.
College athletes have al-
ways been targets for criti-
cism, whether through the
mail, on radio shows or
catcalls from the stands.
Because ofTWitter and oth-
er platforms, direct access
to college and professional
athletes has never been
greater. Most interaction is
positive. But the messages
can get nasty when upset
fans type words they surely
wouldn't say to an athlete's
face.
Last Saturday, after
Missouri kicker Andrew
Baggett missed a short field
goal in overtime against
South Carolina, he was ac-
costed on Twitter. There
were comments about his
ability, homophobic slurs
and one tweet that said "go


kill yourself everyone in
Missouri hates you."
Baggett said this week
that supportive tweets
outnumbered the negative
"20 fold."
"Nobody's comment
made me feel worse than
what I did on that field," he
said.
Nebraska's Kenny Bell
dropped a couple passes,
including one in the end
zone, during a loss to Min-
nesota. Like Baggett, Bell
expressed appreciation for
encouraging tweets, but
he clearly was troubled by
caustic ones. Especially
disturbing was a tweet that
played off the fact Bell's
dog had been hit by a car.
That person later apolo-
gized on TWitter.
"Tonight was the first
night that I have been
truly bothered by the hate-
ful comments by people,"
Bell wrote in back-to-back
tweets. "That being said ...
It takes so much more ef-
fort to be mean an hateful
than it is to be positive an
supportive. I just don't un-
derstand it."
It would be unrealistic
to cut off players from so-
cial media though some
coaches have tried be-
cause online communica-
tion is ingrained in the cul-
ture and can be beneficial,
Sanderson said. An athlete
can use TWitter to build
an online identity, which
helps with networking, job
searches and promoting
the team and university.
Southern California last
year began listing football
players' Twitter handles
on online biographies
and in weekly game pre-
views available to fans and
media.
"This is how people com-


municate today, especially
those from the generation
of our current student-ath-
letes. Why not embrace it?"
USC spokesman Tim Tes-
salone wrote in an email
to The Associated Press. "It
also helps our fans engage
with our players and vice
versa. Sure, there will be
some mistakes, but that's
all part of the learning pro-
cess for college kids."
Tessalone said he's not
aware of any USC players
having serious problems
in interactions wkh fans.
Major athletic programs
typically address social
media with their athletes.
Athletes generally are told
to think twice before hit-
ting the send button so
they don't put out some-
thing that embarrasses
themselves, the team and
the university. At Nebras-
ka, athletes are urged to
not lash out at people who
criticize them, but there
is no policy on what they
should do if they are inun-
dated with negativity.
"It might be something
we need to get into based
on things that have trans-
pired," said Keith Zimmer,
Nebraska's associate ath-
letic director for life skills.
Kevin DeShazo, who pro-
vides social media train-
ing for athletes at about
50 schools for Oklahoma
City-based Ffeldhouse
Media, said coaches and
administrators need to be
aware of online threats
and, harassment. He said
law enforcement and the
platform's administrator
should be notified in ex-
treme cases. Illinois coach
Tim Beckman requires his
players to sign an agree-
ment to notify coaches if
they have problems.


DeShazo said denigrat-
ing messages should be
ignored, even though the
inclination would be to re-
spond. "You can never win
going back and forth with
these people. They want
you to do that," he said.
Someathleteswill retweet
hateful messages so other
fans can take on the source
of outrageous comments.
"it breeds compassion,"
DeShazo said. "Fans will
turn on that person."
Of course, athletes can
easily block people who
are out of line from post-
ing messages on their
platforms.
Though the common
perception of college
football players is one of
toughness, a steady stream
of hate directed at a player
after a bad game is akin to
the cyberbullying that af-
flicts teenagers, Sanderson
said.
Nebraska receiver Qmin-
cy Enunwa acknowledged
he and his teammates
can't resist looking at their
phones after games to see
what fans are saying. If
comments are too. nega-
tive, Enunwa shuts his off
for a while.
"When people are tell-
ing you things after a loss,
you hear it so many times,
you're going to start to be-
lieve it," Enunwa said.
Some players aren't disci-
plined enough to put their
phones down.
"Most kids that age,
whether an athlete or not,
are Invested in what peo-
ple are saying about them,"
Sanderson said. "Love it or
hate it, Twitter lets us know
what people are saying
about us, and when you
see stuff like that, It can
take a toll on you."

picks Miami for


MLS franchise


The Associated Press

LONDON With his
playing career over, for-
mer England captain Da-
vid Beckham has decided
his next move: starting
a Major League Soccer
team in Miami.
Since leaving the Los
Angeles Galaxy in Decem-
ber, and retiring from the
game after a subsequent
five-month stint at Paris
Saint-Germain, Beckham
has been mulling over
the location for his MLS
franchise.
Beckham has now made
up his mind and he would
pay a discounted rate of
$25 million to start an MIS
expansion team in Miami,
a person with knowledge
of the situation told The
Associated Press on Thes-
day. The person spoke
on condition of anonym-
ity because plans for the
team aren't being publicly
discussed yet.
The option of becoming
a team owner was includ-
ed in the MLS contract
Beckham signed when
joining the Los Angeles
Galaxy in 2007.
"We know tKat Miami
is one of the most pas-
sionate soccer markets
in North America," MIS
Executive Vice President
Dan Courtemanche told
the AP "We have met with
David Beckham regarding
ownership of an expan-
sion team, and we look
forward to David one day
owning an MIS club."
There are currently 19
MLS teams, and league
commissioner Don Gar-
ber hopes to expand to 24
teams by the 2020 season.
A 20'lh team is already in
place to begin playing in
2015 after Premier League
club Manchester City and
its partner, the New York
Yankees, paid an expan-
sion fee of $100 million to
launch New York City FC.
The MIS still has to give
Beckham the go-ahead to
make Miami the location
of the franchise.
Beckham is looking to
raise several hundred
million dollars of invest-
ment to fund the setup
costs, including putting
together the squad of
players and building a
stadium.


Beckham's business
partner Simon Fuller, the
"American Idol" creator
who is the driving force
in franchise negotiations,
will be a significant share-
holder, the person famil-
iar with the situation said.
Beckham is looking to
sell stakes in the team to
other investors, and has
already had expressions
of interest from business-
men globally,
Beckham hopes the team
will debut in three years,
which would likely require
the franchise to initially
play in an existing venue.
In June, Beckham
toured the Sun Life and
Florida International Uni-
versity stadiums and met
with Miami-Dade County
Mayor Carlos Gimenez.
University officials de-
livered a presentation to
Beckham and Marcelo
Claure, president and CEO
of Brightstar Corp. and a
member of the FIU Board
of Trustees, explaining
the draw of a professional
team in Miami.
Before deciding on Mi-
ami as the franchise loca-
tion, .Beckham explored
options in other cities,
including Montreal, San
Diego and Orlando, the
person said.
Miami has had a Major
League Soccer team be-
fore. The Miami Fusion
held matches in Fort Lau-
derdale from 1998 to 2001,
before shutting down be-
cause of poor attendance.
Beckham's manage-
ment team said it is not
ready yet to make an an-
nouncement about Beck-
ham's franchise owner-
ship option.

Crouching championship, hidden Tiger


The Associated Press

SHANGHAI-Three
years ago at Sheshan
International, hundreds of
fans wanting an autograph
stood outside the club-
house where Tiger Woods
was signing his scorecard
at the HSBC Champions.
They excitedly began
chanting in Chinese,
"We want Tigeri We want
Tiger'"
Their hopes faded and
the chanting stopped
when they realized he had
left, and then a lone voice
pierced the late afternoon
air with a wistful plea in
broken English..
"Tiger, where are you?"
That question resonates
even louder this year.
The HSBC Champions
embarks on a new era as a
World Golf Championship
that finally is treated the
same as the other three
an official PGA Tour
event.
But.there's one big differ-
ence. Woods is a no-show.
He has been a huge sup-
porter of the WGCs since
they began in 1999 by
playing in 41 of 44 events.
The three he missed were
the Match Play in Australia
when it was held just after
the holidays in 2001, and
two in early 2010 when
Woods was recovering
from the scandal in his
personal life.
That he is not playing in
Shanghai after a year that
featured five wins and two
injuries is not the issue.
Eight other top players are
not playing, either. The
golf season never ends.
Players can and should
take breaks when it best
suits their schedules.
Adam Scott also is missing,
though he faces a month
of celebration in Australia,
his first time home since
winning the Masters.
What makes Woods'
absence so unsettling to
tournament organizers is
that he's already in China.
He was in Hainan Island
on Monday for an exhibi-
tion match (and a reported
$2 million fee) against
Rory Mcllroy. He has at
least one more outing,
maybe more, scheduled
this week in Asia, Woods
and Mcllroy played in
China last year and both
skipped the HSBC at Mis-
sion Hills, IWo years ago,
Woods was In Australia for
outings during the HSBC,
regarded as "Asia's major."
"I do think that's some-
thing, from the tour's point
of view, that does need to
he looked at," Giles Mor-
gan, global head of spon-
sorship and events for
I HSBC, said Tuesday. "I'm
not here to knock Tiger at
all, because I feel that he's
been absolutely instru-
mental in the growth. But
we've reached a point
jwhere it's not about Indi-


DougFerguson
AP Golf Columnist

viduals. It's about growing
the game of golf globally.
"J really hope that Tiger
will want to come back in
following years," he said.
"China is a vast country, so
him playing a meaningless
match yesterday doesn't
really affect us. But yeah.
we're disappointed."
Morgan said he wias
.old a few monthsago-by-. -
Woods' agent that this was
not going to work with his
schedule. After a week of
corporate work. Woods is
playing (for another big
appearance fee) in the
Turkish Open. a European
Tour event.
Like other overseas
events, HSBC once paid
to get the best players. But
now that it's a full-fledged
WGC, big appearance fees
have been replaced by an
$8.5 million purse.
"What I can't do is pay
him," Morgan said. "And
I feel enormously strong
about that. This is a World
Golf Championship. This
is the flagship event of
Asia. This is going to be the
beacon to carry the game
into this continent for
many years to come. We
could do the wrong thing
by golf and drop the prize
money right dpwn and
just pay one or two players
huge fees. From a public-
ity standpoint, that would
giye us a certain amount
of kudos because we'd get
the top player in the world.
And I'm absolutely not go-
ing down that route.
"We have an opportu-
nity to be a genuine top
10 event in the world," he
said. "That requires a mas-
sive investment, which
we're pleased to do. And
that means we want to be
an authentic sponsor In


the world of golf."
Morgan looked out
across the range at
Sheshan International at
one of his strongest fields
ever 40 of the top 50
in the world, a group that
includes Mcllroy, Phil
Mickelson, U.S. Open
champion Justin Rose
and PGA champion Jason
Dufner. There are nearly
two dozen Americans in
the field. He believes it will
get even stronger as more
players realize the eco-
nomic potential of playing
in China.
Woods was instrumen-
tal in getting the HSBC
Champions launched. Ha-
was runner-up in 2005
and 2006. attracting huge
crowds. He returned In
2009 when it was aWGC
(though not official on the
PGA Tour) and was up-
staged by Mickelson in the
final round. And the Lon-
don-based financial com-
pany has been involved
with Woods as a founding
partner of the liger Woods
Learning Center.
"He's genuinely a friend
of the company," Morgan
said.
Woods hasn't been back
since 2010.
These outings could
signal a change in his eco-
nomic model, forWoods
no longer has the blue-
chip corporate support
he enjoyed for so many
years. Since his personal
life crumbled after he was
exposed for serial adultery
at the end of 2009, he no
longer has endorsement
deals with Accenture,
AT&T, Gatorade, Gillette
and Tag Heuer.
EA Sports is the most
recent corporate relation-
ship to end, after 15 years.
Woods signed a deal
with Rolex in October'
2011, and five weeks later
announced a deal with
Florida-based Fuse Sci-
ence to display its logo on
his bag. For the last two
years, however, he hasn't
added another sponsor.

What remains unknown is
whether companies aren't
interested or the price tag
is too high.
Meanwhile, HSBC staged
a photo call Tuesday
afternoon in the riverfront
Bund district to celebrate
the start of the tourna-
ment. It wasn't long ago
that Woods and Mickelson
shared the stage by playing
Chinese checkers. This
time, defending champion
Ian Poulter was joined
by Mickelson, Mcliroy,
Dufner and Rose. They
dressed In ceremonial
cloaks with traditional
weapons and performed

Pacers' Granger will miss time


TW OUVi.y -Lu Tr 'U
Pacers forward Danny Granger (center) Is fouled as he shoots
between Bulls forward Tony Snell (left) and shooting guard
Mike Dunleavy on Saturday In Indianapolis.


The Associated Press

INDIANAPOLIS Dan-
ny Granger tried to brush
aside any new concerns
about his injured left calf
Monday.
Pacers fans can only
hope he's right.
Hours after the Pac-
ers announced Granger
would .miss three Weeks
with a muscle strain, he
walked out of practice
with a smile and insisted
this injury is nothing like
the one that kept him
out of action most of last
season.
"It's not terrible," he
said. "I can run up and
down the court but when I
start jumping, it feels like
a knot in my calf where I
hurt it. They (the doctors)
just said to sit out until I
didn't feel It."
Ranger missed all but
five games wihit a tendon
injury in his left knee, and
there were big questions


about his heWlilh through-
out the Pacers' busy
offseason.
Indiana signed three free
agents, hired two new as-
sistant coaches, brought
Larry Bird back to the
front office and traded for
Luis Scola. The Pacers are
hoping the moves pay off
after they pushed Miami
to Game 7 in the Eastern
Conference finals.
Those within the or-
ganization have always
believed the biggest addi-
tion would be the return
of Granger. If healthy, the
6-foot-9 former All-Star
adds depth and 'ioi.ong
to an already dangerously
strong roster.
But Monday's an-
nouncement, which came
the day before Indiana's
season opener against
Orlando, is only creating
more concerns.
Those outside the team's
inner circle see compari-
sons between this an-


nouncement and what
happened last season
when Granger was told to
rest his injured left knee.
Granger didn't play until
February and returned
to bench afiur only five
games. In April, he finally
opted for season-ending
surgery.
When training camp
opened last month,
Granger was cleared to
work though he was given
extra time to rest as he
finished his rehabilitation
from surgery.
'Now, he's dealing with a
strained muscle in his low-
er left leg that forced him
to miss the final week of
the preseason and could
push return back into mid
to late November.
Granger insists there's
nothing to worry about.
"They're holding me
back because they want
it to heal," Granger said,
referring to the doctors.
"They said if I had not


missed dlii whole year,
hlL'y pi)>lhall would have
sat me down a week and
a half."
The bigge~I difference
between the injuries,
Gringer noted, is that last
year he was dealing with
a joint injury that severely
inhibited his play. This
time, he's simply trying
let a muscle heal, an in-
jury he's played through
in the past.
So why sit him now? The
Pacers say it's a "precau-
tionary measure." He's
expected to miss, at most,
seven to eight games in a
season Indiana hopes to
play close to 100.
"It's a long process for
him, coming back, and
we knew there would be
some speed bumps along
the way," Vogel said. "It
delays (the rotation work)
a little bit, but when
he gets back; to feeling
healthy again, we'll ramp
it up." ( I


Jags sticking



withHenne


The Associated Press

JACKSONVILLE, Fla.
- The Jacksbnville Jaguars
are sticking with quarter-
back Chad Henne through
the bye week.
Coach Gus Bradley said
Tuesday that 'we will con-
tinue with Chad." Coming
off a 42-10 loss against San
Francisco in London, the
Jaguars (0-8) play at Ten-
nessee on Nov. 11.
Henne has started five
games, including the last
three, this season. He has


completed 60.6 percent of
his passes for 1,450 yards,
with three touchdowns and
five interceptions.
Gabbert has completed
48.8 percent of his passes
for 481 yards, with one TD
and seven INTs in three
starts. The former first-
round draft pick has shown
little progress in three sea-
sons. Jacksonville's new
regime planned to give
him evren opportunity to
prove he coudd be a starter,
but Gabbert has sirnLivled
mightly.

Annie's Mailbox


Dow Amni: I am retiring at the end
of the week and am worried. I have
been married for 27 years to my second
husband. For the past 24, he has not
once touched me, said "I love you" or
displayed any affection. He is a good
stepfather to my children and a wonder-
ful grandfather, but there is absolutely
nothing for me.
I am a very social person, but he is
happy reading or working in our garden.
When we do something together, it is
invariably what he wants to do. We go
where he wants to go and eat what he
wants to eat.
I feel I have let life pass me by. My mar-
riage vows said "until death us do part,"
so divorce is out of the question. Will I be


able to find happiness in retirement? I'm
dreading it.
IS THERE HOPE FOR ME?

Dow Hope: Since divorce is not an
option, please use your energy to carve
out your own life within your marriage.
Assert your independence, and do some
things just for yourself. Join a book club,
choir, theater group or political organiza-
tion. Volunteer your time at a children's'
hospital. Take a trip with friends. You also
might find it beneficial to get some coun-
seling, with or without your husband, to
help you navigate the rest of your life in
a way that brings you some type of hap-
piness and satisfaction. It's not too late.
Just take the first step.

Ignore your car's gas gauge, and you get stranded." # 'A K Q J 10 9
If you don't watch your entries, you may get West Eas
stranded as the original declarer did in this deal. East
South was in four hearts. West led the diamond 4 K 8 4 Q J 10 9 2
ace:.five, nine, three. Next, West cashed the dia-
mond king: eight, six, jack. Then, West continued 63 8 7 54
with the diamond queen. What should declarer A K Q '10 7 2 *96
have done now?
South seems to have numerous winners: one 843 7 76
spade, six hearts and six clubs. What could pos- South
sibly go wrong? # 65
Despite having seen East play high-low to show
a doubleton, declarer ruffed the third diamond on A K Q J 10 9
the board. East overruffed and accurately shifted J 4
to the spade queen. South won with dummy's ace,
but suddenly realized that he was stranded on the 452
board. He could not get back to his hand to draw
trumps without conceding a spade trick, which Dealer: North
would have been his fourth loser. Even playing
on clubs could not have helped, unless East had Vulnerable: BAot
started with all six missing hearts and at least three South West North East
clubs.
Too late, declarer realized that he should have 14 Pass
discarded from the dummy at trick three. Even if 4 2 Pass
West had switched to a spade, South could have
won on the board, drawn trumps, and run the 4? Pass Pass Pass,
clubs.
Have you ever run out of gas? Have you ever run
out of entries? If so, you have lots of company, Opening lead: A

New York protests over Russian law


The Associated Press
NEW YORK Olympic
gold medalists stood on a
temporary stage in Times
Square talking about train-
ing and teamwork when
the chants rose up from
about 50 feet away.
"Homophobia has got to
go!" bellowed more than a
dozen protesters who un-
veiled a rainbow banner
reading, "Don't Buy Putin's
Lies."
The U.S. Olympic Com-
mittee set up a mini ski
slope in the tourist magnet
in midtown Manhattan
on Tuesday tq celebrate
100 days until the Sochi
Games. The very public
spectacle achieved its goal
of attracting the attention
of the throngs of. pass-
ers-by. It also allowed the
group Queer Nation New
York to call for a U.S. boy-
cott of the Olympics from
an adjoining sidewalk.
A recently enacted Rus-
sian law outlaws "propa-
ganda of nontraditional
sexual relations among
minors." That raised fears
of whether it could be ap-
plied to international ath-
letes and fans but also
broader criticism that the
International Olympic
Committee should pres-
sure the host country to
repeal the law.
In Sochi, with IOC
President Thomas Bach
in attendance, President
Vladimir Putin promised
Monday that gay athletes
and guests at the Winter
Games will feel at ease. The
IOC has said it received
assurances from the Rus-
sian government that it
will respect the Olympic
charter, which prohibits
discrimination of any kind
at the games.
The USOC'S official


stance is that it disagrees
with the law but that
a boycott is out of the
question. The organiza-
tion is seeking clarity on
what Will and won't be
regarded as violations of
the IOC rule against us-
ing the Olympic stage to
make political protests or
demonstrations.
Back on American soil,
U.S. athletes must decide
what, if anything, to say
about the issue and
they're hearing plenty of
questions about it.
Skier Bode Miller, never
shy, was one of the few
athletes willing to take a
stand on the subject at
the U.S. Olympic media
summit last month fea-
turing Sochi hopefuls. He
called the law "absolutely
embarrassing."
On Tuesday, the brief
USOC presentation to
open the Times Square
event went on uninter-
rupted throughout the pro-
test, which drew plenty of
TV cameras away from the
stage. The athletes' com-
ments still carried crisply
over the loudspeakers, but
they could clearly hear the
chants.
"As much as I'd wish that
they'd wait til we weren't
speaking, their platform
goes away as soon as we're
done," gold medalist Billy
Demong said later. "That's
their opportunity to get
out a message that they
believe in. There's part of
me that would love to not
have to put up with that,
and there's part of me that
totally understands it."
Demong, who in 2010
became the first American
Olympic champion in Nor-
dic combined, isn't com-
fortable using his stage to
promote political causes.
Still, there have certainly

taping of the NBC Today Show on Tuesday In New York.


been times he's felt tempt-
ed. And he knows some
athletes may take advan-


tage of that chance in So- and friends. It's certainly
chi to support gay rights, a pretty near and dear is-
"We all have (gay) family sue for a lot of people," he


said, "That is a platform; it
is an opportunity to speak
about something like that.
I definitely get it."
So far, though, most
American Olympic hope-'
fuls have taken the ap-
proach of snowboarder
Kelly Clark, the 2002 gold
medalist who won bronze
in 2010.
"For me, the Olympics
has always been about the
athletes and the athletics,"
she said, "It has such a long
history of being something
that truly has the ability to
bring the world together in
such a unique way. There's
no other venue that cre-
ates so much unity. I hope
moving forward that that
is what we take away from
these Olympics, that it
remains something that
unites us, not something
that divides us."
