Dollar General


project takes



step forward


This Is a close look at the style of Dollar General store that
Marianna city commissioners favor for the new one that's
coming to town.

Marianna OKs land-use and
zoning changes, learns iconic
oak tree on property will be saved


BY DEBORAH BUCKHALTER
dbuckhalter@jcfloridan.com
Marianna city commis-
sioners have approved
the land use and zoning
changes necessary for Dol-
lar General to build, a new
store at the corner of Guy-
ton and Lafayette streets.
The city will next con-
sidera. dev6plopent order
for the project now that
those prerequisite steps
have been taken. It will un-
dergo review by the city's
planning department and
then the city's zoning com-
mission will either recom-
mend in favor of or against
it. That board's recommen-
dation will be shared with
the MCC board, which will
ultimately decide wheth-
er the store can be built
there.
Commissioners looked at


two potential footprints for
the building .on Tuesday,
and ultimately told devel-
opers that they preferred
the second rendering they
saw. It had a more archi-
tecturally elaborate look
than the first they viewed,
and commissioners said
they thought it would fit
better with the overall lok
of the area it will join.
The company has agreed
to go with a version very
close to the second design
the board saw, according
to the. project engineer,
Joseph: Alday, of Alday
Howell Engineering. It
features an angled brick
facade front, with lighting
elements above the front
door anid extending on ei-
ther side. Alday said that


Joseph Alday looks on as Zach Crumley shows Marianna city
commissioners a picture of a Dollar General store in one of
three styles thatthe company uses. This one was favored by the
board as most appropriately fitting into the residential-heavy
location where a new store is planned: Alday and Crumley are
both involved in engineering aspects of the project.


LADY COMMODORES GIVE BACK

Coach Vemette Skeete and Shonsheray Toombs share a "high-five" during the Lady Commodores' visit to Riverside
Elementary School In Marianna on Thursday.


Title coach, team visit local schools

Tackson County nadve
Vemerte Skeete led
t the Gulf Coast State
ColUege Lady Commo-
dores to a IUCO state ti-
tle last season. The head
coach of that Panama
City squad brought her
defending champions
to visit students azhree
Jackson County schools
on Thursday and Friday.
She went first to her
alma mater.
A Malone School grad-
uate in the class of 2001,
Skeete said she wanted
to spend that time with
local children for two
reasons, she wanted to
give something back to
the community she grew
up in, and she wanted
to honor the memory of
her mother, Gwendolyn,
who died of breast
cancer at the age of 56 a
year ago Nov. 5.
Skeete said she knows
her mother would be
proud to see her coming
back to encourage the
youngsters of Malone
and of another local
school special in her
mother's heart. Mrs.
Skeete worked as a
houseparent in Madison
House at Sunland for
several years and loved
the people there, her
daughter said. That's
why coach Skeete found
it especially rewarding to
help Suriland's resident
athletes as they prepare
for their Special Olym-

to be there Friday.
On Thursday, after
her stop at Malone
School, Skeete and her
squad went to Riverside
Elementary, where they
found an enthused
student body waiting
for them in the mul-
tipurpose room that
serves as a gymnasium.
The players and Skeete
shot hoops with the
fourth- graders and
the youngsters taught
them how to play '4-
square' Jackson County
style.

Crews return to battle
it back into submission


BY DEBORAH BtCKHALTER
dbuckhalter@jcfloridan.com
A silo fire at Rex Lum-
ber Company in Gracev-
Wile reignited roughly five
hours after it first started
around 4:40 am. Thursday.
Seven fire teams respond-
ed to the 4:30 a.m. call-out
and Iagain at the ensuing
9:30 a.m. dispatch. Ac-


cording to Jackson County
Fire Rescue Chief Tony
Wesley, crews came from
Marianna, Graceville Cot-
tondale, Alford, Campbell-
ton. and Southern Junction
in Alabama, as well as the
JCFR.
'The Marianna Fire De-
partment's aerial truckwas
used to get water to the


top of the silo so it could
be aimed down into the
structure, Wesley said.
Wesley said it appears
that a hot metal piece
from a fan may have
caused a spark in the silo,
which was not quite ful-
ly loaded with sawdust.
Wesley estimated the
holding capacity of the silo


at between 100 and 200
tons of sawdust .
Rex employees were
busy unloading the saw-
dust and piling it out-
side as firefighters be-
gan to stand down from
the battle around 11
a.m. It was under control
by 10:30 arm., Wesley
estimated.


He speculated that the
fire had sparked again
-because air pockets be-
gan to form as employees
began trying to unload
the bin after the initial
firefight had concluded.
The air, like the saw-
dust, acted as fuel for the
blaze. Although other
fire departments had left


the scene after the fire
was first subdued, Gracev-
iWie had stayed to watch
over it, knowing that the
possibility of a restart ex-
isted. That team called for
backup once it was clear
that the fire had gained
energy.
No one was hurt in the
incident.

ASHEVILLEZ N.C.
- Hundreds of people
are expected to join the
Rev Billy Graham as he
reaches a significant mile-
stone Thursday.
The
North Car-
olina born
evangelist c m
turns 95,
and a big
party is
planned
to cel- Graham
ebrate the
occasion.
Graham's son, Franklin,
has said that ps many as
700 people have been
invited to the party in
Asheville.
The Rev. Franklin Gra-
ham says among those
invited are President
Bill Clinton, former vice
presidential candidate
Sarah Palin and real estate
mogul Donald Trump.
While the elder Graham
will attend the party, he
is riot expected to give a
speech. Graham has been
hospitalized for a number
of health-related issues
in the past few years and
now uses a wheelchair.
On his birthday, his
ministry is scheduled to
release a new video of
Billy Graham from his
home as part of a nation-
wide religious outreach
called "My Hope."
The video features clips
of Graham shot this year
at his home in Montreat.
Television stations
across the U.S. will air the
28-minute video begin-
ning Thursday night.


Vatican: pope to
meet with Putin
VATICAN CITY-The
Vatican says Pope Francis
will hold talks with Rus-
sian President Vladimir
Putin in Vatican City on
Nov. 25.,
Details are still be-


ing worked out, but the
Vatican press office said
Thursday the private au-
dience would likely take
place that afternoon.
Francis has been keenly
following the war in
Syria, and given Russia's
prominent role in trying
to resolve the fears over
Syria's arsenal of chemical
weapons, the two men
would likely discuss in-
ternational efforts to end
the suffering and warfare
there.
A papal visit to Russia
eluded the globe-trotting
John Paul id during his
long papacy. The Russian
Orthodox Church at times
has accused Catholics
of poaching converts
in Russia following the
demise of Soviet Com-
munism, and there were
also disputes over church
property-

Bus driver fired for
leading prayer
BURNSVIylE, Minn.
-A pastor who worked
as a bus driver for the
Burnsville school district
said he has been fired for
leading kids'in Christian
prayers on his bus.
George Nathaniel, 49,
of Richfield, who is also
a pastor for a pair of
Minneapolis churches,
was in his second year
as a school bus driver for
Durham School Services,
which is under contract
to the Burnsville-Eagan-
Savage district. Nathaniel
told the Star Tribune
Durham School Ser-
vices originally gave him
a warning and assigned
him two new bus routes
after receiving a com-
plaint about the prayers.
Nathaniel said he
prayed during the seven-
minute ride to school
after the last child got on
board.
"We start out with a
song," he said, "Then
each person will pray if
they want to pray. If they
don't want to pray, they


don't have to pray. Then
I will pray and ask them
if they want to join me
in prayer. Just give them
something construc-
tive and positive to go to
school with.*
Nathaniel continued to
lead prayers, and Durham
sent him a separation
letter dated Oct. 30, citing
complaints of religious
material on the bus.
Teresa Nelson, legal
director of the American
Civil liberties Union
of Minnesota, said "the
school bus driver has the
right to pray on his own
time but when he has a
captive audience of kids
on a school bus, that
would violate the Estab-
lishment Clause of the
First Amendment"

Judge: Ky. priest
fittostmndtrial
LOUISVILLE, Ky.
-A judge has ruled that
a terminally ill Catholic
priest accused of abusing
two boys at a Louisville
church in the 1970s is not
too sick to stand trial on
sodomy charges.
A state doctor called
by prosecutors testi-
fied Thursday that she
examined the Rev. James
Schookinjuly and
concluded that he can
"rationally participate in
his defense."
Schook is suffering from
*skin cancer and other
ailments and doctors
have said the disease is
terminal. He appeared in
court Thursday but did
not speak during the two-
hour hearing.
School's attorney, David
Lambertus, said the
priest's health has steadily
degraded since he was ex-
amined over the summer
and relatives testified that
Schook requires round-
the-clock care.
Jefferson County Circuit
Judge Mitch Perry set a
trial date for March 31.

JACKSON COUNTY FLORIDAN w/ww.jcfloridan com


Rethinking the use of the word noness


Old-school preachers used
to call them "backslid-
ers," those folks who
were raised in the pews but
then fled.
Sociologists and church-
growth professionals eventually
pinned more bookish labels
on these people, calling them
the "unchurched" or describ-
ing them as "spiritual, but not
religious."
Pollsters at the Pew Forum on
Religion & Public Life and simi-
lar think tanks are now using a
more neutral term to describe
a key trend in various religious
traditions; talking about a sharp
increase in the percentage of
Americans who are "religiously
unaffiliated."
That's certainly an awkward,
non-snappy label that's hard to
use in headlines. It's so
much easier to call them the
"Nones."
Anyone who cares about the
role of religion in public life had
to pay attention to last year's
"Nones on the Rise" study by
the Pew researchers, especially
the jarring fact that 20 percent
of U.S. adults including 32


percent under the age of 30
- embrace that "religiously
unaffiliated" labeL The question
some experts are asking now is
whether Americans have simply
changed how they describe their
beliefs, rather than making radi-
cal changes at the level of faith
and practice.
While there has certainly
been a rise in the number of
"religiously unaffiliated" people,
when researchers "dig down
inside the numbers they will
find that there hasn't been that
much change in the practice
of religion in America," said
Frank Newport, editor-in-chief
at Gallup, in a recent telephone
interview.
"What's happening is that
people who weren't practic-
ing their faith and have never
really practiced a faith are now,
for some reason, much more
likely to be honest about that
fact," he said. "People used to
say that didn't go to church, but
they would still call themselves
'Baptists,' or 'Catholics' or what-
ever....
"It's that lukewarm, vague
sense of religious identity that is
fading. We're seeing a lot more


Terry Mattlgly
On Religion

truth in the reporting, right
now."
It's especially important to
note that young people who
were raised in intensely reli-
gious, traditional homes are
much more likely to continue
practicing their faith, or to
become active in a similar faith.
That's according to a new Focus
on the Family report, built
on the Pew Research Center
numbers and the most recent
General Social Survey from the
National Science Foundation.
In the Millennial Genera-
tion young people bom in
the 1980s and '90s only 11
percent of those who now call
themselves "religiously unaffili-
ated" said they were raised in a
home in which a faith tradition
was enthusiastically lived


and taught
The Focus on the Family study
noted: "This is not a crisis of
faith, per se, but of parenting.
Young adults cannot keep what
they were never given."
So what has changed? Experts
at the Gallup Poll have been
asking similar questions about
religious identity and practice
for decades, noted Newport,
and it's clear that in the past it
was much harder for Americans
to face a pollster and muster
up the courage to openly reject
religion period.
"I found the survey in the '50s
where it was zero percent 'none.'
How's that? I mean literally, it
rounded down to zero," said
Newport, drawing laughter dur-
ing a recent Pew Forum event
"So -it's amazing that back when
the Gallup interviewer came a-
calling and it was in person in
the '50s literally it-looks like
almost every single respondent
chose a religious identification
other than'none.'"
Now,. it's becoming clear
that perhaps following the
cultural earthquakes of the
1960s many Americans have
stopped pretending they are


linked to faith traditions that
they have no interest in practic-
ing. These unreligiouss" Ameri-
cans, Newport told the Pew
gathering, are not really chang-
.ing how they live their lives, they
"are just changing the way that
they label themselves."
Meanwhile, it may be time
for researchers to pay renewed
attention to what is happen-
ing among the Americans on
the other end of the spectrum
those who remain committed
to faith-centered ways of life,
said Newport, in the telephone
interview.
"It's possible that if you really
claim a religion today, then
it's much more likely that your
religious identity is pure, that
you're making sacrifices to prac-
tice your faith because it really
means something to you," he
said. "Maybe it's significant that
so many people are willing to
stand up and say that they still
believe."

ington Journalism Center at the Council

Fla. Supreme Court settles lesbian custody battle


The Associated Press

TALLAHASSEE- The
Florida Supreme Court
ruled Thursday that a
woman who donated
an egg to her lesbian
partner has parental
rights to the child and is
ordering a lower court to
work out custody, child
support and visitation
arrangements.
The case involves two
women, identified only
by their initials, who had
a child together. One do-
nated an egg that was fer-
tilized and implanted in
the other, who gave birth
in 2004.
But two years later the
Brevard County couple


split up, and the birth
mother took the girl and
left the country. The other
woman, who identifies
herself as the biological
mother, used a private de-
tective to find her former
partner in Australia, and a
custody fight ensued.
The court wrote that the
birth mother's "prefer-
ence that she parent the
child alone is sadly simi-
lar to the views of all too
many parents who, after
separating, prefer to ex-
clude the other parent in
the child's life. The court
added that "an all-or-
nothing choice between
the two parents is not
necessary."
The birth mother tried to


use a Florida law that pre-
vents sperm or egg donors
from claiming parental
rights to children bom to
other couples. Her law-
yer also cited a standard
form donors are required
to sign relinquishing pa-
rental rights. The court
rejected both arguments,
saying the law doesn't
apply in this case be-
cause the couple clearly
planned to parent the child
together.
"The couple's actions
before and after the child's
birth including their
use of funds from their
joint bank account, their
statements to the repro-
ductive doctor that they
intended to raise the child


as a couple, the counseling
the underwent to prepare
themselves for parent-
hood. the use of a hyphen-
ated last name for the
child, and the joint birth
announcement reveal
that the couple's agree-
ment in actuality was to
both parent the child," the
court wrote.
The decision doesn't
throw out the Florida law
and it can still be applied
in cases where there are
anonymous donors pro-
viding sperm or eggs to
couples.
"The case represents a
recognition of the funda-
mental right a parent has
to parent their child, re-
gardless of that parent's


sexual orientation or the
manner by which the child
is conceived," said Chris-
topher Carlyle, a lawyer
representing the biological
mother. 'You had a unique
situation where there was
no intent of our client to
donate this biological ma-
terial and then be out of
the picture. They obviously
intended to raise the child
together.
The lawyer for the birth
mother didn't immediately
return a phone message
left at his law office.
A trial judge ruled for
the birth mother and said
the biological mother. has
no parental rights under
state law, adding that he
hoped his decision would


be overturned.
The 5th District Court of
Appeal in Daytona Beach
sided with the biologi-
cal mother and said both
women have parental
rights.
"It would indeed be
anomalous if, under Flori-
da law, an unwed biologi-
cal father would have more
constitutionally protected
rights to parent a child
after a one night stand
than an unwed biological
mother who, with a com-
mitted partner and as part
of a loving relationship,
planned for the birth of a
child and remains com-
mitted to supporting and
raising her own daughter,"
the court wrote.

Warhol to bee on exhibit in


Florida at Dali Museum


The Associated Press

ST_ PETERSBURG- Sal-
vador Dali and Andy
Warhol: one was a sur-
realist from Spain, the
other, a pop artist from
Pittsburgh.
They were among the
most famous artists of the
20th century, and in 2014,
their works will be on ex-
hibit in adjoining galleries
at a museum in Florida.
The Salvador Dali Mu-
seum in St. Petersburg
announced Thursday that
a show called "Warhol;
Art. Fame. Mortality." will
open at the museum on
Jan. 18.
The exhibit will include
about 35 ofWarhol's paint-
ings, 20 drawings, 50 pho-
tographs and a selection
of films. The works are
on loan from the Warhol
Museum in Pittsburgh,
where Warhol was born
and raised before moving
toNewYorkCity,
Warho's silkscreened
self-portrait in red and-


a vibrant blue silkscreen
of Jacqueline Kennedy
Onassis will be among the
works on display.
"Warhol' had a similar
sensibilit'.v to Dali," said
the museum's executive
director, 1: lank Hine. "Both
referenceid fame and mass
culture."
Despite!- their different
backgrounds, Dali and
Warhol h ad a lot in com-
mon and hung out to-
gether in. the 1960s, Hine
said.
Both haid signature looks
- Warhol with his shock
of white 1 iair, Dali with his
flamboy i'nt moustache
- and b oth artists want-
ed to sho ck the public and
explore %he meaning and
limits of fame. Dali was a
generatiipn older born
in 1904 than Warhol,
who was ibor in 1928, but
both captivated thepublic
with th(ir artentibo-get-
ting and sometimes con-
troversial works of art.
Warholl often visited
Dali whi -n Dali stayed in


a suite at the St. Regis Ho-
tel in New York (one, story
goes that Dali tied War-
hol to a spinning board
and splattered paint over
him). Warhol also made
one of his famous "screen
tests" of Dali these
short films were of a sin-
gle person who wasn't al-
lowed to move, against a
plain background.
Dali ignored Warhol's
instruction to sit still and
left the frame.
"Both showmen, Warhol
and Dali shared a, mutual
curiosity;, but one, could
not take a backseat to
the other for the sake of
art," wrote Anine Morra,
associate curator at the
Department of Film at the
Museum of Modern Art in
New York for the muse-
um's blog in 2011. "War-
hol and Dali were indeed
kindred spirits, what we'd
probably call BFFs today;
sassy, shallow, ego-driven,
celebrity obsessed, and
fond of readymades and
disposability"


High Court looks ait red light camera case


The Associated Press.

TALLAHASSEE- Cit-
ies that installed red-light
cameras before a state law
authorized them might
have to pay back mil-
lions of dollars in fines if
Florida's Supreme Court
accepts the argument
that they were collected
illegally.
A Florida law requix-
ing uniform traffic law'
enforcement wouldn't
have allowed a separate
fine system set up by cit-
ies that were using red-
light cameras before the
Legislature passed a law
allowing the devices in
2010, attorneys for driv-
ers who 'are challenging
the law argued before the,
court Thursday. .
Cities can't implement
their own set of fines
outside of state law, said
one of the attorneys, Ja-
son Weisser. In the case
of an Orlando ordinance,

he add'Etd, the penalties
- such as the revocation
of locally issued business
permits and licenses if
fines aErin't paid exceed
what tha state allows for
running 'red lights.Weisser
said.
He alsg) noted that the
Oilando' ordinance called
for a, $2!i|0 fine for a third
offense i'when the state
fine would be. $125. the
ordinan res also deviated
from st ate law because
they ap.Jlied to the vehicle
owner and not the driver,
he said.
Two cases that had
gone be fore separate ap-
peals courts were merged
into on 6 for the purposes
of Thi ursday's hearing.

Canceled policies could



be a plus for new markets


WASHINGTON Insurance can-
cellations are fueling a political
backlash against President Barack
Obama and Democrats supporting
his health care overhaul, but they
'may be a silver lining for the law
itself.
It's Economics 101, a little-noticed
consequence of a controversial pol-
icy decision. And there are winners
and losers.
Millions of people who currently
buy their own health insurance cov-
erage are losing it next year because
their plans don't meet requirements
of the health care law. Experts say
the resulting shift of those people
into the new health insurance mar-
kets under Obama's law would bring

surers, reducing the overall financial
risks for each state's insurance pooL
That's painful for those who end up'
,paying higher premiums for upgrad-

for the taxpayers who are subsidiz-
ing the new coverage.
"Already-insured people who do
roll over will improve the risk pool,
not hurt it," said David Axene, a Cali-
fornia-based actuarial consultant for
health plans, hospitals, government
programs and employers.

have a pent-up need for medical
services, he explained. -They may
have already had that knee replace-
ment instead of hobbling around on
a cane. They're also more likely to
have seen a doctor regularly.
"The current individual market
enrollees are definitely a good ad-
dition to the risk pool," concurred
Larry Levitt, an insurance expert
with the nonpartisan Kaiser Family


Foundation.
At some point, all these custom-
ers had to pass extensive medical
screening that insurers traditionally
use to screen out people with health
problems. Such filtering'will no lon-
ger be allowed starting next year, and
a sizable share of the uninsured peo-
ple expected to gain coverage under
Obama's law have health problems

The Sneads Lady Pirates had
a breakout season in 2012-13,
surprising everyone by winning
17 games including eight in
a row to end the regular season
- and earning the No. 2 seed in
the District 3 tournament
But the Lady Pirates had their
season ended prematurely when


Cottondale upset them in the
semifinals, robbing them of a
highly anticipated return trip to
the playoffs.
This year, Sneads comes in
with high expectations and the
goal of getting back to the post-
season seeming very realistic
thanks to the return of last year's
starting five, including top two
scorers Tasherica McMillon and
Logan NeeL


"I think going into last year, we
really didn't know what to expect,
and to come out and play as well
as we did and win 17 games
was a major accomplishment,"

The Sneads Pirates won't get to go to the
playoffs this year, but they can finish with a
winning record for the first time since 2006,
and they'll try to do so tonight in Bristol.
The task will be awfully tough, howev-

Q I they will face off with the
Rutherford Rams at 7 p.m.
Marianna (2-7) opened the
year at the stadium against the
Bay High Tornadoes and came
away with a 24-7 loss.
The Bulldogs will be hoping for a better
result tonight to try to end what has been a
disappointing season on a positive note.
Following the loss to Bay, Marianna beat
defending 1A state champion Northview
28-6, but it was not a sign of things to come
for the Bulldogs, who dropped four con-
secutive games, including three by a grand
total of seven points.

in a game that means nothing for either,
but features two teams in a very different
state of mind.
Liberty County is aweekawayfrom open-
ing the 1A playoffs against the top-ranked
and undefeated Blountstown Tigers and
is likely just hoping to get out of tonight's
game in one piece after losing sophomore
running back Jordan Chaney to a season-
ending injury in last week's district loss to
Port St. Joe.
For the Pirates, the game represents a fi-
nal opportunity to salvage something posi-
tive from a season that held such promise
before their playoff hopes were ended with
a 35-19 loss to Vernon last week.


"We wanted to be in the playoffs and
we're not, but there's nothing we can do
about it now but move forward," Sneads
coach Bill Thomas said Thursday. "We've
had a good week of practice. We've prac-
ticed just as hard as we have all season.
The guys responded and came back well
this week, and we'd love to end it with a
win."
A victory would be quite an accomplish-
ment against a Liberty County team whose
lone two losses this year have come against
district champions Blountstown and Port
St..Joe.

"Is Incognito wrong? Ab-
solutely. He's 100 percent
wrong," New York Giants
safetyAntrel Rolle said. "No
individual should have to
go through that, especially
in their workplace.
"But at the same time,
Jonathan Martin is a 6-4,

at some point and time you
need to stand your ground
as an individual. Am I say-

ing go attack, go fight him?
No. I think we all under-
stand we can stand our
ground without anything
being physical."
Dolphins players have
robustly defended In-
cognito, long considered
among the NFL's dirtiest
players. He's now a noto-,
rious national villain, but
teammates praise his lead-
ership and loyalty.
They've been less pas-


sionate in their support of
Martin, saying he and In-
cognito behaved like best
friends.
"They did a lot of stuff
together," tackle Tyson
Clabo said. "So if he had a
problem with the way he
was treating him, he had
a funny way of showing
it."
Martin is with his family
in California to undergo

Bears' Cutler to start against lions


The Associated Press

LAKE FOREST, M. Jay
Cutler's time away proved
shorter than the Chicago
Bears originally expected.
After missing one game,
the quarterback will return
Sunday to face the Detroit
lions at Soldier Field fol-
lowing a groin tear suffered
Oct. 20. Team officials origi-
nally expected Cutler to be
out four weeks and then be
assessed week to week, but
doctors cleared Cutler to
play Thursday, and he prac-
ticed without a problem.
"As soon as I got hurt, I
felt like I'd be back quicker
than they thought," Cutler
said. "I kind of had that
mindset."
Coach Marc Trestman
saw no reason'to believe
the team is pushing its
starter back onto the field
too soon.
"He had an excellent
practice," Trestman said.
"He moved around. We
worked the entire game
plan today: our move-
ments, climbing- the
pocket, throwing the foot-
ball, down the field, short
throws, everything. He did
everything today."
Cutler does not view his
quick return as a gamble.
He credited the use of an
Athletic Rehabilitation and
Performance machine,
a device that helps heal
soft tissue, with his rapid
recovery.
"If I wasn't back to 100
percent, or if they had any
doubts, I wouldn't have
been able to practice to-
day," he said. "That was the
stipulation."
The Bears had a bye after
their 45-41 loss to Wash-
ington, which provided
some extra time for Cut-
ler to recover. I-e suffered
the injury with 10 min-
utes left in the first half of
the Washington game on
a sack, and backup Josh
McCown completed the
contest, then played all of
Monday night's 27-20 win
at Green Bay.
Cutler is slated to be-
come a free agent after
this season, but called his
contract status no factor in
coming back so soon.
"I haven't worried about
my contract," he said. "I
haven't worried about it,
period. That stuff takes
care of itself somehow,
some way.
"So my biggest thing was
just helping Josh last week
to make sure, even though
I knew he would be ready,
to make sure I could help
him in anyway, and then
get back as soon as pos-
sible so I could help those
guys."
McCown completed 36-
of-61 for 476 yards-end
idid not turn the ball over


as Cutler's replacement.
He had a passer rating of
100.2. Cutler has com-
pleted 146-of-225 for 1,658
yards and 12 touchdowns
with seven interceptions.
He has a passer rating of
91.7.
McCown said he had no
problem returning to the
sidelines after playing so
well. .
"Jay got hurt, and I served
my team by playing and
doing what I could to helpI


us win a ballgame, and-
then play effective foot-
ball when I was in there,"
McCown said. "When he's
healthy, he comes back
and he's the starter, and
that's how it goes. That's
how we operate."
McCown said he will
take no snaps with the
first team this week. at
practice,/as is normal with
backup quarterbacks with

teams.

steps to ensure that every
one of our affected mem-
bers is represented," Smith
said in a statement. "It
is our duty as a union to
learn the full facts, protect
the interests of players in-
volved arid hold manage-
ment accountable to the
highest standards of fair-
ness and transparency"
Martin is the son of Har-
vard graduates, and his
great-grandfather graduat-
ed from the school in 1924.
Martin attended Stan-
ford, .where he majored
in the classics and pro-
tected Andrew Luck's blind
side.
Martin was taken by the
Dolphins in the second
round of the 2012 draft.
But while he has been a
starter since the first game
of his rookie season, he de-
veloped a reputation in the
NFL for lacking toughness.
That impression might.
have been reinforced by
the way he handled his


issues with Incognito,
current ano former team-
mates acknowledge.
"A lot of people might
look at Jonathan Martin and
think that he's soft because
he stepped away from the
gamie, and say, 'Why don't
you just flgt him?'" said
Seattle Seahawks receiver
Doug Baldwin, who played
with Marlin at Stanford.
"Well, jf you look at it
with common sense and
being logical, what op-
tions did Jonathan Martin
have?
.He could fight Richie
Incognito. He could go and
tell on the players, which
we know in the football
locker room doesn't go
over too well. Or he could
remove himself from the
situation and let the proper
channels take care of itself.
And I think he made the.
intelligent, smart choice
without putting himself or
Richie Incognito's physical
abilities in danger."

Annie's Mailbox


Dear Annie My older brother and I are
both in our mid-30s and have not gotten
along for 20 years. He has been verbally,
psychologically and at times physically
abusive towards me. He has a ferocious
temper, and if I say anything he doesn't
like, he lambastes me.
I try to avoid him, but since the birth of
my nephew (the'cutest baby ever), that
is not always possible. I like his wife and
adore my nephew. Before a visit, I have
trouble sleeping at night I feel anxious
and dread the hours passing in anticipa-
tion. When I get there, I try to stay silent
and enjoy the baby, not doing anything
that might make him lash out.
I wish there was a way to heal my
relationship with my brother. He doesn't
believe he's done anything hurtful and
thinks I should just -get over it" I wish I
could. Is there something I could do?


Bridge
Yesterday, we saw that if the opener bids one
of a suit, the next player makes a takeout double,
and the responder bids a lower-ranking suit at the
two-level, this shows a weak hand. So, what does it
mean if the responder redoubles first, then bids a
new suit on the second round?
Right logically, it must be forcing. The respond-
er has promised at least 10 high-card points and
the hunt is on for the right contract for the opening
side.
In today's deal, after responder's three-club rebid,
South might continue with a three-diamond bid.
Then North would presumably cue-bid three hearts
to ask his partner to bid three no-trump with a heart
stopper. Here, of course, South would be happy to
oblige. And, as in the given sequence, South just -
plunges straight into our favorite contract when we
have game values but no major-suit fit. (Note that
five clubs fails, but five diamonds makes.)
West leads the heart king. What should South do?
Unless the heart suit is blocked, if declarer loses a
trick before he has taken nine, he rates to concede
at least that lost trick and four hearts. So, South
should concentrate on getting seven diamond
winners.
After taking the first (or second) heart trick, South
cashes the diamond ace. Then, when West discards,
declarer must be careful to unblock dummy's 10.
Next, South leads a spade to the board, plays the
diamond five to his nine, runs that suit and cruises
home with an overtrick.
Always watch the spot-cards closely to see if a suit
blockage is threatened.


ULTLE SISTER IN NEED

Dear Mttle Sister. Can you create a
tougher skin? You need to stop taking
your brother's anger personally. His
comments have nothing to do with your
intelligence, your personality or your
opinion on any subject. It's about his
need to be in control of every situation,
and at the bottom of that need is fear.
Empower yourself. Learn to smile in-
dulgentiy and ignore him or say calmly, "I
guess we simply disagree." If you can cre-
ate a different dynamic by refusing to be
your brother's favorite target, your entire
relationship could evolve. Enlist his wife's
help to keep visits pleasant. Whenever
possible, see your nephew when your
brother isn't around. And they may both
love it if you offer to take the baby for an
hour or so. Win-win.

NEW COACHES
* Steve Afford, UCLA. He wasn't the most popular choice in Westwood for fans and boosters who
wanted a bigger name. The former Indiana star would like nothing more than to prove them wrong.
v Andy Enfield, Southern California. Dunk City will make its Hollywood debut after he led Florida
Gulf Coast on a surprising NCAA tournament run last season.

mer national champion coach.
* Joe Dooley, Florida Guff Coast. Bill Self's longtime right-hand man at Kansas gets his first shot at
running the show in Dunk City.
Eddie Jordan, Rutgers. The longtime college and NBA coach will try to calm the storm after Mike
Rice was fired for berating players and AD Tim Pemetti was forced to resign.

Saban remains 'very committed to Alabama'


The Af cated Press

TUSCALOOSA. Ala
- Nick Saban says he re-
mains "very committed to
the University of Alabama"
and disputed an account
of his agent's conversation
with Texas early this year.
The Crimson Tide coach
was asked Wednesday
about an Associated Press


report regarding his agent's
conversation in *Januar%
about possibly replacing
Mack Brown at Texas.
' Saban's agent, Jimmy
Sexton, indicated that the
coach would consider
leaving Tuscaloosa for the
Texas job during a January
phone call, according to an
email sent by formerTexas
regent Tom Hicks.'


Asked abour the account.
Saban said: -No ones said
anything like thaC
"First of all. I don't know
whereV'allgehi these reports
and I don't know where
y'al] get the information,"
said Saban, who smiled
when a reporter asked
about the AP report. 'But
I've already commented on
all this stuff. There's noth-


ing new or different that's
ever happened. I'm very
committed to the Univer-
sity of Alabama, love being
here. We"\r talked about it
before. Don't need to talk
about it again--
Hicks detailed the call in
a Sept. 24 email that was
obtained Tuesday by The
Associated Press through
an open-records request.

good year for them to get
them go out on a high
note, but there are a lot of
good teams around here
and our schedule will be a
lot tougher."
Sneads will play two
games each against Chi-
pley, Malone, Holmes
County, and Port St Joe
- all of whom made the
IA playoffs last season
- though the Lady Pirates
won't have to deal with
powerhouse Ponce de Leon
in their own district any-
more, with Blountstown
taking their place and PDL
moving to District 1.
With the move by last
year's district champion
PDL to another league, it
would appear the district
is wide open for the ex-
perienced Lady Pirates to
make a run at a title.
"With everybody coming
back, that's what you've got
to shoot for," Ward said.
"We won 17 games last
year, and we really can't
go into the year expecting
anything less than that. I
don't think it will be easy
by any means. Nobody is
just going to give it to you.
That's the one thing on our
schedule; there aren't any
games on there where we
can just show up and win.
We'll have to go out every


night and play four quar-
ters. If we don't, then it will
be along year."
Sneads returns all of its
starters from a year ago,
but three of them Neel,
Aaliyah Williams, and
De'Aryll Green plus
sophomore reserve Em-
ily Glover are still with the
Lady Pirates volleyball
team, which is playing for
a trip to the state semifi-
nals on Saturday.
It's why Ward scheduled
his team's season opener
for Nov. 19, three days after
the state volleyball finals.
However, that still leaves
the Sneads basketball team
shorthanded for the time
being and could lead to
some rust and sloppiness
early in the year.
But when they do return
and get back in the swing
of things, they'll help
round out a core group that
proved capable of func-
tioning as a pretty produc-
tive unit last season.
"I feel pretty good about
our five starters returning,"
Ward said. "We've got size
with (the 6-foot-1) Logan,
we've got two 'really good
guards with Aaliyah and
Tasherica, and then'Chas-
ity McGriff does a good job
going to the basket and de-
fending, and DeAryll Green
give us some size, and she
hustles, and rebounds
reallyiwell."
Williams, Green and


McGriff proved to be solid
role players and key pieces
of the puzzle last year, but
it's the duo of McMillon
and Neel who again will
likely need to pack much
of the scoring punch.
Neel averaged 10.9 points
per game last season, and
crafty guard McMillon led
the way with 21 points per
game.
"We'll definitely need
them to do everything they
did last year and more,"
Ward said of the senior
duo. "We need'Tasherica
to continue to play the
way she's capable of play-
ing and to step up and be
a leader. She can't get frus-
trated when we struggle.
She's got to get the other
girls up and always play
hard. She's going to carry
us, so we can't have her get
frustrated and take plays
off."
Neel was much improved
in her junior season and
gave Sneads a legitimate
inside presence at both
ends of the court.
Ward said she will need
to continue to make strides
as a player for the Lady Pi-
rates to take another step
forward as a team.
"Weve got to be able to
get the ball inside to her
and have her finish and
compete down there," the
coach said. "Defensively,
she's huge. in the middle
with her ability to alter


shots and keep people
from getting easy baskets
at the goaL She had a good
summer, and just another
year of experience is going
to help her. She just needs -
to be more physical, and
she can't let people bother
her with their physicality.
She's a big key to what we
do.:
While the Lady Pirates
have a good deal of experi-
ence with their core group
of players, they're still pret-
ty low on numbers, with
just eight total players at
the moment.
But the coach said that
he's used to dealing with
a short rotation and be-
lieves his team can handle
it.
"We're not going to have
a whole lot of depth, but
we didn't have a whole lot
last year either," he said.
"We only had nine last year
when it was all said and
done and we had sqme in-
juries here and there, so we
had to deal with the depth
issue last year. We just had
to get in shape and battle
through the nagging little
injuries. It's the same thing
this year. You hope you can
avoid any major, injuries
where you have to miss,
games, and with the little
stuff, you just have to play
through it."

Pirates
From Page 1B
"They're a well-coached
football team. They're re-
ally good on the line of
scrimmage on both sides
of the ball," Thomas -said
of the Bulldogs. "They're in
the playoffs and tradition-
ally good every year. If we
could beat them, it would
be a real good win against
a good football team."
Beating Liberty County
is tough on a normal week;
on the final week of the
season, following a heart-
breaking district loss, the


challenge for the Pirates
could be monumental.
However, Thomas said
he has confidence that his
players will be mentally
ready to play a great game.
"Our guys have com-
peted in every game this
year and played hard in ev-
ery game. We've got them
playing hard," he said. "At
times we don't play smart,
but we do play hard, and I
think we'll play hard again.
,J know liberty County will
too. They do a real good
job and are well-coached
and disciplined. Very sel-
dom do you see-a good,
disciplined football team


that doesn't play hard. Ev-
ery Friday night, you want
to come out and play your
hardest; it doesn't matter
if you're playing a play-
off game the next week or
not."
The coach said lack of
motivation has not been
an issue for his team and
doesn't view the opportu-
nity to finish above .500 as
a small thing.
"Like always, we want
to win really badly and
walk away from the season
saying we accomplished
something and broke the
streak of not having a win-
ning season here," he said.


"That's what we're playing
for, and I hope we can get
it for this crop of seniors. I
really hope we do that for
them.
"I think we'll go out there
and be in the game and
play really hard and it will
be a.good football game.
Like all of our games this
year, I think we'll have our
opportunities. It's a matter
of do we take advantage
of them or not. We're just
focused on not beating
ourselves."
