An arctic air mass was expect-
ed to pour into the area Tues-

Our Opinion



Far.C.ityDay

Take a drive out of Niarianna in any direction, and
before the song on the radio ends, you'll likely
be surrounded by farmland. Jackson County is
blessed with acre after acre of rich soil that yields a '
variety of crops, provides a living and a way oflife for
many area families and undergirds the area's economy.
Those who make their living from the land and its
related industries aren't recognized enough, it seems,
considering that, without agriculture, Jackson County
would be far less than it is today.
On Friday, the local farming industry will get its due
at the annual Farm City Day Breakfast at the Agriculture
Conference Center in Marianna.
We applaud those Jackson County residents involved
in farming and related businesses, and are cheered that
the community's recognition of their contributions goes

Tampa Tribune on

collecting online s-ales taxes
T he case against requiring online retailers to
collect'state sales taxes gets thinner with each
passing year.
Most recently, the decision by Amazon to build ware-
houses in Hillsborough and Polk counties means the
world's largest online retailer will now be required to
collect the 6 percent tax on Florida sales.
That should open the door for legislative action to
impose the requirement on all online retailers, even
those without any physical operations in the state..
Doing so would level the playiIg field for-brick-and-
mortar stores, which must charge the sales tax and are
at a decided disadvantage when competing with online
retailers exempt from collecting the tax.
But don't hold your breath. Even though hundreds
of millions of dollars in revenue could be generated
annually for the state, lawmakers seeking re-election
may be reluctant to have theirnames attached to
legislation being miscast by its opponents as a tax
,increase.
Just to be clear, the issue is not about increasing taxes.
It's about fairness, and about capturing revenue that is
owed to the state but that goes uncollected because of
antiquated laws. Lawmakers should look beyond the
politics and pass legislation this year that positions the
state to receive the sales taxes.
If lawmakers want to mitigate the tax load on Florid-
ians, they can make the legislation "revenue neutral,"
meaning the added revenue from online sales tax col-
lections will be offset by tax cuts in other areas....
Under federal law, online retailers without a physical
presence in a state are not required to collect the sales
taxes and remit them to those states. But there
is .a congressional effort to change that. The federal
Marketplace Fairness Act has passed the U.S. Senate
but is stuck in the House, where it faces tea party '
opposition....
Online sales are growing at a:rapid rate. In North
America, they topped $364 billion in 2012. They are
expected this year to reach $1,3 trillion worldwide.
With the holiday season around the corner, the state's
retailers can only watch as the out-of-state retailers of-
fer the same merchandise online at lower prices, thanks
to. outdated state and federal laws.',
That's not fair. Congress, and the Florida Legislature,
should put self-interest aside and fix the law.

No O i d'.i. sablee


e was just land of left
by himself," a friend of
'',:LHRichard Shoop com-
mented to reporters.
I never met Shdop, but I nearly
ran into him a few nights ago at
a Nordstrom in Paramus, N.J. He
had just shot a rifle in the air there,
starting a mass panic and police
lockdown that ended in Shoop
committing suicide. Like every
other customer and worker in the
mall at the time of the incident,
I'm unharmed Shoop evidently
wasn't prepared to hurt anyone but
himself. I just cant get Shoop off
my mind.
Based on the media testimony of
family and friends, Shoop, seemed
like he was trying to be functional.
He went to work and' lived his life.
But he would fall into addiction,
violence anid confusion. And he's'
not alone.
Iniher book "Men on Strike," Dr.
Helen Smith writes that in 2010,
more, than 38,000 people killed
themselves in the United States
-more than 30,000 of them men.
Why would Shoop choose to terror-
ize a mall before taking his own life?
Perhaps because we don't'notice
people until they do something
really crazy.
"People care almost as little
about suicide in young men as
they do about men in general,
which is to say, not a lot," Smith;
also the author of "Scarred Heart,"
a book about teens who kill. She ;
adds: "In a world where everyone
is so busy and the culture full of'i
hostility for men and boys their
inner psychological life is taboo un-
less it conforms, to the societal ideal
... Add to this constant barrage
of cable news giving media time to
mass shooters over and over, and
it is little wonder that aconfuised
young man thinks thatthe way to


ah
);2th itynLo'pez,


gain recognition and attention to
his plight is by a public display of
suicide, or worse, harming others."'
judging from reports, it seems
clear Shoop "was deeply unhappy"
for presently unknown reasons, and
appeared to.want to kill himself in
a dramatic way. Dr. Sally Satel, a
staff psychiatrist at the Oasis Clinic
in Washington, D.C., and author of
many books on psychiatry, policy
and treatment, comments.
"When people start talking about
giving away their possessions and
the 'already seem withdrawn and
hint at killing themselves, you have
to take that combination very seri-
ously," she cautions.
"My general advice to friends,
family and co-workers is to take an
interest, pay! attention, and inquire.
when they see another person
appearing to 'drift' lit strange
directions," says Aaron Kheriaty,
a clinical professor in the Depart-
ment of Psychiatry at the Univer-
sity of California, Irvine, and lead
author of "The Catholic Guide to
Depression."'?..
"Make the effort to get to know
the person a little bit,.and then get
below the surface chit-chat," Dr.
Kheriary says. "If you simply take
the trouble to ask with an attitude
of wanting to assist, most people
will open up. IT they open up, then
you can begin to build some trust.
This does not need to take a long
'time. From there, a suggestion to


seek help from a mental health
professional is more likely to-be
well-received than if it came at the
person out of the blue."
Shortly after Shoop- had been.
found dead, a picture of Pope
Francis embracing the severely
disfigured head of a man with a
genetic disorder went viral, captur-
ing the public imagination with the /
possibilities of love, of real encorn-
ters with one another, beyond; as
Kheriaty said, the superficial.
The pope has recently been
talking about a throwaway culture
where we treat people as if they are
disposable; something in Shoop'S
life-or a temnpuing darkness
in his head, an ache in his heart
seems to have led him to believe
that he'was. But nothing could be
further from the truth. If he could
only be reached by the outpouring
of love of family and friends as they
faced the watching world in the
aftermath of the tragedy.
It's too late to embrace Shoop
and give him the love and help he
needed. Instead of screaming
about gun laws. let's grapple
* with better ways to reach the
tormented, to keep them from
abandonment, to help families aid
the mentally ill. and to let every
man and woman know they are
not disposable, that we have not
'thrown them away to be alone
with scars on their hearts and
darkness in their heads. There is.
no magic wand to keep what hap-
pened at the Paramus mall from
happening again, but building
and nurturing a culture where we
.have actual, fulfilling personal -
interactions amid a supportive,
nourishing culture couldn't
hurt.

Affordable care depends on the size of'your subsidy


TAW. hat does the word "afford-
\\f1i able" in the Affordable
W.V Care Act mean? Many
people might assume it means
Obamacare will make health
coverage less expensive. That's
certainly the impression President
Obama gave when he promised his
national health care scheme would
"cut the average family's premium
by. about $2,500 per year."
But Obama arnd the Democrats
who passed the law didn't really
*mean that premiums will go down.
What they meant was that pre-
miums might well go up, but the,
government will give some Ameri-
cans money with which they can
paythe higher premiumsaand still
come out ahead.
For some people that will be true.
For others, riot so much. Unlike
Social Security and Medicare,
Obamacare is a means-tested
-.entitlement program. It will give
- low-income Americans'substantial
taxpayer-paid subsidies with which
to purchase insurance. People
who make a bit more will receive
smaller subsidies, and -those above
a certain income level will receive'
no subsidies at all. If theyhave to
purchase'higher-priced coverage,
that's their problem.
The pro-reform Kaiser Family
Foundation has created on its web-
site a subsidy calculator into which
anyone can enter his location,
income and family size to come
up with an estimate of how big, or
small, his Obamacare subsidy will
be.
Start, for example, with a low-in-
come family of four living near St.
Louis, Mo., with $35,325 in house-
hold income (that is 150 percent .of
the federal poverty rate for a family
that size). A Silver Plan policy for
the family would have an annual
premium of $8,088, according to
Kaiser. But the family would receive
a taxpayer-paid subsidy of $6.675,
which means the family would pay,


By-o inYork


with its own money, just $1,413
for the coverage. (Kaiser chose
the Silver'Plan for-the calcula-
tor because that is the plan that
determines the size of Obamacare
subsidies.)
Of course, most families of four in
Missouri make more than $35,325
a year. The 2012 Census Bureau
estimated that the median income
for a Missouri family of four was-
$72,230 meaning that half the
state's families of four are below
that level 'and half are above.
For a family that is right on the
median income, $72,230, the
annual premium would still be
$8,088, but the taxpayer-paid sub-
sidy would fall to $1,226, meaning
the family wolild pay, with its own
money, $6,862 for the coverage. Is
that a better deal than they have
now? Maybe yes, and maybe no; In
any event, they won't save as much
as the president-promised.
Finally, chose a higher income
level, but one' at which there are
still a lot of people. For a family of
four with an income of $85,000, the
premium remains $8,088 but the
subsidy shrinks to just $13 a year,
meaning the family will pay, with
its own money, $8,075 for coverage.
So that family will technically re-
ceive help. with its health care costs
- but not really.
For families above that level, and
there are a lot of them, the subsidy
will be $0. The bottom line is, when
- or if- large numbers of people
actually begin purchasing cover-
age on the Obamacare exchanges,
many will find the much-touted,


subsidies aren't for them.
And that will be the key question
of Obamacare: Will it help more
people than it hurts,, or will it hurt
more people than it helps? If the
answer is the former, Obamacare
might become a permanent feature
of American life. If the answer is the
latter, it will be politically unsus-
tainable and will fail.
The administration and its
defenders might argue that the
numbers will be a bit different, that
some premiums could be lower or,
subsidies higher. But the basics are
the same: Obamacare is all about
subsidies, and "affordable" means
the government is paying for all or
part of it.
That is why the administration '
and its defenders are urging Demo-
crats nervous about the disastrous
Obamacare rollout to just waitfor
the subsidies to arrive. When that
happens, they say, the Obamacare
controversy will'subside..
Whatever the case, the.cost
to taxpayers will be enormous.
Obamacare limits the percentage
of income that subsidy-receiving
Americans have to spend on health
coverage. Those at the top of the
subsidy ladder are obligated to
spend no more than 9.5 percent of
-,their income.on premiums. Those
lower down pay a lower percent-
age for that family of four with
$35,325 in annual income, it would
be 4 percent.
The percentage of income that
people pay doesn't change if the
price of coverage goes up. So if the
$8,088 premium becomes a $10,000
premium, or a $12,000 premium,
the subsidy recipient doesn't have
to pay more. It's the subsidy paid
for by taxpayers -'. that goes up.
So the "affordable" in Affordable
Care Act doesn't really mean afford-
able at all.

Starbucks to pay $2.76B

in coffee spat with Kraft


The Associated Press


NEW YORK An arbi-
trator has concluded that
Starbucks must pay $2.76
billion to settle a dispute
with Kraft over coffee distri-
bution. The two consumer
products companies had
been locked in a fight for
three years after Starbucks
Corp- fired Kraft as its dis-
tributor of packaged coffee
to grocery chains.
The arbitrator deter-
mined that Starbucks must
pay $2.23 billion in damag-
es' arid $527 million in at-
tdrney fees, Starbucks arid
M6ndelez said Tuesday.
Deerfield, Ill.-based
Mondelez International
Inc., which spun off Kraft
Foods Group in October
2012, will 'get the award.
Mondelez, whose brands
include Cadbury, Oreo
and Tang, said that it plans
use the money left after
expenses and taxes to buy
back stock.
Shares of Mondelez rose
97 cents, or 3 percent, to
$33.40 in after-hours trad-
ing. Starbucks' stock fell
$1.20, or 1.5 percent, to
$79,41. '
Kraft began exclusive-
ly marketing Starbucks
roasted and grounded cof-
fee in stores -in 1998, and
renegotiated the contract
in 2004. The contract was
set to expire in 20I4.'But in
November 2010, Starbucks
told Kraft it was severing
its agreement with Kraft,
Kraft initiated arbitration
proceedings to "challenge
the termination. The two
officially separated in
jMarch2011.


Starbucks had said in
.2010 that Kraft had not
done what was mandated
under the contract, failing
to work closely with the
company on marketing
decisions and customer
contacts. The Seattle com-
pany said then that its'de-
cision to sever relations
with Kraft was consistent
with the contract's terms.'
Starbucks plans a confer-
ence call to discuss the de-
cision this morning. It said
t it will book the. award as a
charge to fiscal 2013 oper-
ating expenses.

One World Trade Center


named tallest U.S. building


The Associated Press
NEW YORK They set out to
build the tallest skyscraper in the
world a giant that would rise
a symbolic 1,776 feet from the
ashes of ground zero.
Those aspirations of global su-
premacy fell by the wayside long
ago, but New York won a con-
solation prize Tuesday when an
international architectural panel
said it would recognize One
World Trade Center as the tallest
skyscraper in the United. States.
The Council on Tall Buildings
and Urban Habitat, considered
a world authority on supersized


skyscrapers, announced its deci-
sion at simultaneous news con-
ferences in New York and Chica-
go, home to the 1,451-foot Willis
Tower, which is being dethroned
as the natiQn's-tallest building.
Measuring the height of a
building would seem to be a sim-
ple thing, but in the case of the
new World Trade Center tower it
is complicated by the 408-foot-
tall needle atop the skyscraper's
roof.
The council's verdict rested
on a conclusion that the needle
should be counted as part of the
building's total height. Without
it, the tower would he just 1,368


feet tall, the same height as the
originalWorld Trade Center. That
would make it smaller than not
only the Willis, but also a 1,397-
foot apartment building being
built a short subway ride away
near Central Park.
Speaking at his office in New
York, council chairman Timothy
Johnson, an architect at the glob-
al design firm NBBJ, said the de-
cision by the 25-member height
committee had more "tense
moments" than usual, given the
skyscraper's importance as a pa-
triotic symbol.
"I was here on 9/11. 1 saw the
buildings come down," he said.

iHE A._', 1: 14i.r;l:":
Sen. David Vitter, R-La., walks to the Senate at the Capitol in Washington, Tuesday, Nov. 12.
Vitter cast the lone vote in opposition to a bill designed to tightenigovernment oversight
of pharmacies that custom-mix prescription drugs. a measure to make lawmakers disclose
which of their aides are enrolling in the president's new health care program as part of an
ongoing effort to discredit "Obamacare."


Senate votes to advance



specialty pharmacy bil


The Associated Press'

WASHINGTON The
Senate voted Tuesday to
advance a bill designed to
tighten government over-
sight of pharmacies that
custom-mix prescription
drugs, in the wake of last
y-ear's deadly meningitis
outbreak tied to contami-
nated pain injections.
The bill cleared a par-
liamentary hurdle on a
97-1 vote, indicating its
overwhelming support in
the Senate. The legisla-
tion, passed by the House
in September, also cre-
ates a national system
for tracking prescription
drugs from manufactur-
ers to retail pharmacies.
Final passage sending
it to President Barack
* Obama for his signature
could come as early as
Wednesday.
,The lone' vote against
the measure came from
Sen. David Virter. The
Louisiana Republican
is championing a mea-
sure to make lawmakers
disclose which of their
aides are enrolling in the
president's; new health
care program as part of an
ongoing effort to discredit
"Obanmacare."
The compounding
pharmacy bill is intended
to prevent a repeat of last
year's fungal meningi-
iis outbreak that killed
64 people and sickened
more than 750 others
across the U.S. The sick-.
ness was traced to a
now-closed pharmacy in
'Massachusetts, the New


England Compounding
Center, where inspectors
found mold, standing
water and other unsterile
conditions.
"Americans deserve to
know that their medica-
tions are safe, and by en-
acting this legislation, we
can help make that a real-
ity," said Sen. Tonm Harki n,
chairman of the Senate
Health, Education, Labor
and Pensions Committee,
hi a statement.
Compounded medi-
cimes have been tied to
contamination problems
for years. But jurisdiction
o0erthemhas been mu rky.
Pharmacies are typically
regulated through state
boards, but the federal
Food and Drug Adminis-
tration regulates manu-
facrurers of medicines.
- The bill attempts to sort
out that legal gray area,
which allowed the NECC'
and other large pharma- -
cies to skirt both state and
federal regulaLions. Specif-
icall], the measure would
clarify when theFDA can
intervene 'against. com-
pounding pharmacies.
Pharmacies that oper-
ate as traditional co6M-
pounders, producing
small ,batches pof medi-
cations to fill' doctors'
prescriptions, would
continue to be regulated
by state pharmacv
boards, under the legis-
lation. Pharmacies that
expand into shipping
drugs without doctors'
prescriptions can volun-
tarily register with the
FDA and submit to fed-


eral inspections and qual-
ity standards similar to
manufacturers.
But the bill would not
require these large-scale
compounders to register
with the FDA'-*a step
that the agency's leaders
have said is crucial to pre-
venting future outbreaks.
And safety advocates-say
the voluntary approach
leaves consumers vulner-
able to more rogue phar-.
macies like the NECC,
which operate like manu-
facturers under the guise
of compounding.
The compounding in-
dustry's chief lobbying
group also opposes the
bill, saying it would fur-
ther complicate pharma-
cy regulations.
Despite complaints
about the bill's short-
comings it has garnered
broad support, in part be-

Hawaii Senate passes gay marriage bill


Thcti--o.i: iatAPress3

HONOLULU The
state Senate passed a
bill Tuesday legalizing
gay marriage, putting
Hawaii a signature
away from becoming a
same-sex wedding
destination.
Gov. Neil Abercrombie,
who called lawmakers to
a special session for the
bill and has vocally sup-
ported gay marriage, said
in a statement he will sign
the measure. It will allow


thousands of gay couples
living in Hawaii and even
more tourists to marry in
the state starting Dec. 2.
"I look forward to sign-
ing this significant piece
of legislation, which pro-
vides marriage equity and
fuIly recognizes and pro-
tects religious freedoms,"
Abercrombie said.
President BarackObama
praised the bill's passage,
saving the affirmation
of freedom and equal-
ity makes the country
stronger.


"I've always been proud
to have been born in Ha-
waii, and today's vote
makes me even prouder,"
Obamasaid.
Senators passed the bill
19-4 with two lawmakers
excused. Cheers erupted
inside and outside the
gallery when the vote was
taken, with a smantering
of boos. Senate President
Donna Mercado Kim,
who voted against the bill,
banged her gavel and told
members of the public to
quiet down.

All day shopping frenzy

on Thanksgiving Day?


The Associated Press

NEW YORK Last
Thanksgiving Day, Kim-
berly Mudge Via's mother,
sister and nieces left in the
middle of their meals to
head for the mall.
Now, Via says she'll never
host Thanksgiving dinner
for her relates again.,
"They barely finished,"
says the 28-year-old who
lives in Boone, N.C. "They
thanked me and left their
plates on the counter."
That scene- could be-
come more common in
homes across the country.
Black Friday shopping, the
annual rite of passage on
the day-after Thanksgiving,
continues to creep further
into the holiday as more
stores open their doors a .
day early.
It's a break with tradi-
tion. Black Friday, which
typically is the year's big-
gest shopping day, for. a
decade has been conisid-
ered the official start to
the busy holiday buying
season. Stores open in the
wee hours of the morning
with special deals called
doorbusters and stay
open late into the evening.
Meanwhile, Thanksgi%-
ing and Christmas re-
mained the only two days
a year that stores were
closed.
Now Thanksgiving is
slowly becoming just an-
other shopping day. Over
the past few years, major
retailers, including Target
and Toys, R Us, slowly have
pushed opening times into
Thanksgiving night to one-
up each other aijd com-
pete for holiday dollars.
Some initially resisted,
saying that they wanted
their employees to be able
to spend time with their
families.
This year, more than a
dozen major retailers are
opening on Thanksgiving,
including a handful like
Macy's, J.C. Penney and


Staples that are doing it
for the ftrst time. The Gap,
Which operates its Old
Navy, Gap and Banana Re-
public, is opening half of
its stores on Thanksgiving
morning.
Roger Beahm. profes-
sor of marketing at the
Wake Forest University
School of Business in
Winston-Salem, N.C., ex-
pects that it's just a mat-
ter of time he estimates
five years before most
chains open all day on
Thanksgiving. As for
Christmas, he says that
day is still sacred among
shoppers.
"The floodgates have
opened," Beahm says.
"People will turn Thanks-
giving Day shopping into
a tradition as they histori-
cally have on the day af-
ter Thanksgiving ;... And
stores don't want to be left
behind."
Indeed, 'Mtalk'rs
they're just doing what
shoppers want. And they
know that opening-earlier
gives them a chance to be
the first to grab shoppers'
dollars.

QB Murphy game-time decision at SC

Offensive coordinator
Brent Pease said Tuesday
that Murphy's throwing
shoulder is still sore and
could keep him out against
the Gamecocks on, Satur-

Murphy sprained his
right shoulder against LSU
last month. He started the
last three games losses
against Missouri, Geor-
gia and Vanderbilt and
completed 55.7 percent of
his passes for 479 yards,
with one touchdown pass
and four interceptions. He
also was sacked 15 times.
Murphy said Monday

The Seminoles are un-!

Bucs hold off embattled Dolphins for first win of 2013 season


The Associated Press

TAMPA, Fla. -The Tam-
pa Bay Buccaneers got
a much-needed victory,
and the Miami Dolphins
showed a bullying scandal
hasn't completely torn the
team apart.
The Bucs (1-8) became
the last NFL team to win,.
beating the embattled
Dolphins 22-19 with a
strong defensive perfor-
mance on night the fran-
chise honored Hall of
Famer Warren Sapp.
"A win cures everything.
... It's good to get our first'
win, especially at home,"
cornerback Darrelle Revis
said. "It was an emotional
game for us, and we knew
the type of game it was go-
ing to be on Monday night.
as well. It's great."
*The Dolphins (4-5) lost
for, the fifth time in six
games.
In its' first outing since


allegations of bullying en-
gulfed the locker room in
controversy, Miami rallied
from a 15-0 deficit to take
the lead before rookie
Mike Glennon led a long
touchdown drive put the
Bucs ahead for good.
Bobby Rainey's 1-yard
run capped an 80-yard
drive, and Tampa Bay held
ohnthe-final 10 minutes to
win for only the second
time in 15 games dating
to last season.
The Bucs held fourth-
quarter leads in four of
their eight losses, losing
each time in the final 89
seconds of regulation or
overtime.
"It was rough. It was
scary, I'm not going to lie,"
linebackerAdam-Heyward
said, recalling the Bucs
blew 'a 21-point lead be-
fore losing-at Seattle eight
days earlier.
"It looked like last week.
The guys, like. Lavonte


(David) and a bunch of us
just said we're tired of it,"
Hayward added. "We can't
do it again, and everybody
just started stepping up
and making plays."
Ryan Tannehill threw
for 229- yards, includ-
ing touchdowns of 6
and 19 yards. to Rishard
Matthews. : '
But the,- second-year
quarterback got, no help
from a running game that
was limited to just 2 yards
rushing.,,,
"We didn't .have any
type of way to keep them
off balance because we
weren't able to establish
the run," Dolphins coach
Joe Philbin said.
Despite the loss, the
game was a welcome -
albeit brief- respite from
questions about tackle
Jonathan Martin's allega-
tions of daily harassment
by teammates, including
suspended guard Richie


Incognito.
The NFL is looking into
the case, and the league's
special investigator will
determine whether In-
cognito harassed Martin,
and whether the Dolphins
mishandled the matter.
"We had a good week
of preparation, but the
performance wasn't good
enough," Philbin said.
"We have good guys
on this team who under-
stand adversity and un-
derstand how to handle
it," Tannehill said. "This
is a good test. I'm not say-
ing it's easy. I'm not saying
it's fun to deal with. But I
have faitni in these guys."
Glennon didn't dazzle in
his sixth start for Tampa
Bay, but the rookie did
hold his composure and
throw for 139 yards. and
one TD.
Tampa Bay set a team
record for fewest rushing
yards allowed.

arrested outside Kansas
City over the weekend'on
charges of speeding 'and
Spossessing marijuana,:
throwing his status for q
pivotal AEC -West show-
down against the Denver
Broncos into question.
Bowe was pulled over for
going about 48 mph in a 35_
mph zone,, police in sub-
urban Riverside said Tues-
day. Police said. an officer
smelled "a strong odor of
marijuana from inside of
the vehicle," and asked
Bowe and two passengers
to get out of the car.
Police then used a dog
'to search for illegal sub-
stances and found a bag
with Bowe's wallet and two
containers holding what
the officer suspected .was
marijuana. One container
held 6.6 grams of the sub-
stance, and the other had
3.8 grams, or about one-
third of an ounce in all.
Bowe was cited 'for
speeding and 'possession
of a controlled substance,
police said. He posted"$750
bond and is scheduled to
appear in Riverside court
on Dec. 18.
Chiefs spokesman Ted
Crews ,said the team was
aware of the situation but
declined further comment.
Bowe's agent, Todd France,
did not return. a message.
seeking comment.
-It's 'unclear whether
Bowe will be available for
Sunday's game. While pen-
alties have varied,; Com-
missioner Roger 'Goodell
historically .has suspended
players one game without
pay and fined them an ad-
ditional game check for
possession of marijuana,
once the case is finalized.
Bowewas suspendedfour'
games in 2009. for violating
the NFL'S policy on perfor-
mance-enhancing drugs
after taking what his agent
called an unapproved
weight-loss supplement.
But that policy differs .from
the NFL's most recent sub-'
stance-abuse policy, which
governs illegal drugs, and
'alcohol abuse.

Dwayne Bowe was, arrested this past weekend on drug charges
and speeding.


The unbeaten Chiefs
were off Tuesday before
resuming preparations
for their Sunday night
game. against' the Bron-
cos, who are a game back
in the division standings.
It's the first of two games
that the longtime rivals
will play in a span of three
weeks.
A passenger in the, car
was also arrested for pos-
session 'of a controlled
substance after the po-
lice dog found a backpack
'that contained 4.'2 grams
of suspected marijuana.
Riverside is a community
of about 3,000 residents lo-
cated just north of Kansas
City.
'Along with his previous
suspension, Bowe made
questionable comments to.
a magazine a few years ago
about womanizing that al-
legedly occurred at team
hotels.. He then offered an
apology that went awry
when he referred to the
Hunt family that owns the
-Chiefs as 'ihe Clarks" a
reference to Clark Hunt,
who serves. as the team's
most visible face.
People close to Bowe
have said he started to ma-
ture 'after those incidents,
though, and the result was
the best stretch of his sev-
en-year career.
He caught a league-lead-
ing .15 touchdown passes
in 2010, when he earned
his first trip to the Pro.
Bowl, and a career-high 81
passes the following year.'

last season and struggled


in part because of a shaky
quarterback situation, but
still did enough to warrant
a five-year, $56 million
deal from the Chiefs' new
regime this past offseason.
So far, he's struggled
to live up to the new
contract.
Bowe has had trouble get-
ting open in Reid's offense,
and has been subjected to
,constant double-teams.
He has 33 catches for 36,9
yards and two touchdowns'
through the, .first nine
games.
The Chiefs returned to'
practice from their bye on
Monday, and while there
was no access to play-
ers, coach Andy Reid said
on a conference call with
reporters that everyone
participated..,,.
"Everybody was .back,"
Reid said, "which is a good'

MRI positive for Manning


The Associated Press

ENGLEWOOD, Colo.
The MRI determined
the hit caused no further
damage to Peyton Man-
ning's tender right ankle.
Now, NManning and the
Broncos are curious what
the NFL thinks of that hit.
Interim coach Jack Del
Rio said the Broncos have
sent replays to. the league
"offices of Corey Liuget's
dive at Manning's ankles
in the closing minutes of
Denver's 28-20 win over
San Diego.
"In the rules, there are
certain areas you can hit
and certain areas that are
supposed to be protect-
ed," Del Rio said Monday.
"And we thought that got
into an area that was sup-
posed to be protected."
Manning, whose ankles,
have been hurting since
games against Jackson-
ville and Indianapolis last
month, stayed down after
Liuget' dove at him 'folb
lowing a completed pass"
that iced the gahie with
1:44 left. Manning limped'
through the rest of the
game and in the locker
room afterward.
An MRI on Monday
showed no further damage
* to' the ankle, which was
heavily taped throughout
the Chargers game. Del
Rio said Manning would
play next Sunday in Den-
ver's AFC West showdownr
against. Kansas City. The
quarterback's .practice
schedule will be deter-
mined later in the week.
,"But he'll definitely play
this week," Del Rio said.
"He's ready to roll and
that's good news."
Though it only lasted a
brief moment, the sight of
Manning wincing in pain
on the ground served as a
chilling reminder of how
fragile Denver's season
could be. Manning added

rookies of the year


The Associated Press

NEW YORK,-Jose Fer- I
nandez arrived early. Wil
Myers made it big after a
blockbuster.trade.
Neither one needed
much time to. create a
splash, and together they
'brought both Rookie of
the Year'awards back to
Florida.,
Fernandez stood, out.
in a very deep National
League class this season,
and the precocious Mi-
ami Marlins pitcher re-
ceived 26 of 30 first-place
votes from a Baseball
Writers' Association of
Arimerica panel in results
announced Monday.
Myers won the.Ameri-
can League prize after the
Tampa Bay slugger put
up impressive offensive
numbers in barely half a
season.!The ,right fielder
'was chosen first 'on 23 of
'30 ballots, beating 'out
Detroit shortstop Jose
Iglesias and Rays team-
mate Chris Archer.
"Honestly, when I was
called up that didn't
even cross my mind.
As the season went on I
could see I would have a
chance," Myers, said on a
conference call from his
North Carolina home.
"To be able to win is just
a huge honor and I'm very
excited about it,"
The two announce-'
ments marked the be-
ginning of awards week
in baseballA NL and AL
Manager of the Year will
be revealed Tuesday, with
the Cy Young winners
Wednesday and MVPs on
Thursday.
Nlyers became the third
Tampa Bay player in six
years to be selected Rook-
ie of the Yearijoining Jere-
myHellicksot (2011) and'
Evan Longoria. (2008).
Seated next to each.other,
Myers and Archer smiled
and shook hands when
the winner was .revealed'
on MLB Network.


Fernandez easily topped
runner-up Yasiel Puig of
the Los' Angeles Dodgers
as Cuban players ran 1-2
in the NLxrace. The only
previous' Ro6kie of the
Year winners from .Cuba
came in the AL: Jose Can-
seco in 1986 and Tony
Oliva in 1564.
'"It means a lot just to
be compared to those
guys," Fernandez said.
"I'm not sure I was even
born when those guys
were playing. But for. sure
I heard the names before.
..AllUthe kids 'n Cuba play
baseball." : ,
Puig. received the.other
four first-place votes and
amassed 95 points to 142
for Fernandez, who made
the All-Star team at age
'20.:He went 12-6 with a
2.19 ERA and .187 strike-
outs for a last-place club
that finished 62-100.
.'Fernandez. was shut
down in September after
172 2-3 innings to protect
his precious arm. Still, his
debut season was so su-
perb that he's one of three
finalists for the NL Cy
Young Award -- though
Dodgers ace Clayton Ker-
shaw is a heavy favorite.
Fernandez already has
one big prize, however,
and he hugged his mother
and grandmother when
he won.
He came to the United
States by boat as a Cuban
refugee in 2008, appar-
ently rescuing his momr -
along the' way., Drafted
14th overall-in 2011 out of -
high school in Tampa. he
had, never pitched above
Class A before this season.
Fernandez was ticketed
for Double-A Jackson-
ville at the end of spring
training when injuries
left two holes in Miami's
rotation.
4Fernafidez became an
unexpected 'addition. to
the. roster, making him
the youngest pitcher .on
a major league team on
opening day.

David Bird from
England has written more,
than 100 bridge books. He
specializes in humor, par-
ticularly about the monks
of St. Titus. But now he
has published a second
book about the staff and
pupils of'Cholmeley
School, "The Headmaster,
the Matron and the Scis-

the humorous stories are
instructive deals, many
sent to Bird by Tim Bourke
from Australia.
In this deal from the
book, how should the play
and defense go in four
spades? West leads the
heart ace and continues
with the heart king.
East's'weak two-heart

was hoping he might shut
out the spade suit. How-
ever, South jumped tO four
spades, the contract he
hoped he could make.
West led the heart ace
and continued with the


heart king. South, the
Headmaster, ruffed,
cashed the spade ace, and
led the spade queen. West,
the Matron, won with her
king an'd paused. Her
partner had discarded the
club two and club five,
discouraging in that suit.
So West shifted to a dia-
mond. East won with his
ace and led another heart,'
which promoted West's

East spotted how the,
