noon when emergency re-
sponders were called to the
Blue Springs Recreation
Area to assist a cave diver
in need of medical atten-
tion. The 3.8-year-old diver

is listed in critical condi-
tion after running into dif-
ficulties underwater.
According to officials
with the Jackson County
Sheriff's Office, a pair of
men, one from Chicago,
the other from Minnesota,
began a cave dive around

three days and are both
believed to be experienced
divers. I t
Approximately 50 min-
utes into Monday's dive,
the Chicago man signaled
to his partner that he was
in distress. His partner as-
sisted him in getting out of
the Water, but the Chicago

man became unrespon-

from Sneads High School
were killed in an automo-

On Sept. 6, 2012, Bo Mc-
Clamma, Brandon Hobbs,
both 16, and 15-year-old
Teddy Jeter died in a traf-
fic crash together on Sand
Ridge Church Road. The
three were' sophomores,,
set to graduate in the Class

Sullivan was great-aunt
to Hobbs, but her grieving
extended to all three of the
young men's families.
She decided to pour
* her sorrow into a tribute.
It took her a year to do
it, but Sullivan painted a
portrait of each boy and,
on Sunday, before a spe-
cial Thanksgiving meal at

Sneads Assembly of God, a
church that has been sup-
portive of the families, she
unveiled the three pieces.

Zimmerman (

charged with

assault, battery '|

The Associated Press

APOPKA, Fla. George
Zimmerman was charged
Monday with assault after
deputies were called to the
home where he lived with
his girlfriend, who claimed
he pointed a shotgun at
her during an argument,
authorities said.
Zimmerman pushed the
woman out of the house
and barricaded the door
with furniture, Chief Dep-
uty Dennis Lemma said at
a news conference hours
after the arrest. The girl-
friend, Samantha Scheibe,
provided deputies with a
key to the home and they
were able to push the door
that had been barricaded.
was compliant when depu-
ties came to the house.
"The easiest way to de-
scribe'it is rather passive.
He's had the opportunity
to encounter this before,"
he said.
Zimmermanwas charged
with aggravated assault
with a weapon, battery and
criminal mischief. *'
"Just when you thought
you heard the last of
George Zimmerman,"
said neighbor Catherine
CantreUl. She said she had
twice seen a man who
looked like Zimmerman
get out of a truck that's
been in the driveway for
nearly a month. The truck
parked there Monday ap-
peared to be the same one
that reporters have seen
Zimmerman drive previ -.
"I'm in absolute shock.
He was never outside. It's
not like he was out flaunt-
ing around," she said.
Cantrell said the woman
who lived in the home was
very sweet and quiet.
Sarah Tyier, 26, also lives
across the street from the
tan stucco house on a
cul-de-sac street of single
family homes in Apopka,
about 15 miles northwest
of Orlando.
"It's kind of frightening,"
she said, adding that she
only saw a woman come
out of the house.
Zimmerman, 30, was
- acquitted in July of all
charges in the shooting of
Trayvon Martin. The death
of the blqck teenager.
who was unarmed,
touched off a nation-
wide debate about
- race and self-defense.
Zimmerman, who iden-
tifies himself as Hispan-
ic, has said he shot the
17-year-old to defend
himself during a fight
in February 2012 in-
side a gated community
in Sanford, just outside

Office shows former neigh-
borhood watch volunteer
George Zimmerman after he
was arrested Monday, Nov. 18,
in Apopka, Fla.
He wasn't charged until 4
-14 days after the shooting,
leading to protests nation-
wide from people who be-
-lieved he should have been
immediately arrested. The
case sparked accusations
that Zimmerman had r6-
cially profiled Martin, and
demonstrations broke
out again after his acquit-
tal. Federal authorities are
now reviewing the case the
see if Martin's civil rights
were violated.
Zimmerman has had
other brushes with the law'
since his acquittal.
Zimmerman and his es-
tranged wife were involved
in a domestic dispute in
September just days after
Sheflie Zimmerman filed
divorce papers, but po-
lice later said no charges
were filed against either of
them because or a lack of
Zimmerman has also
been pulled over three
times for traffic stops since
his acquittal. He was tick-
eted for doing 60 mph in a
45mph zone in Lake Mary
in September and was
given a warning by a state
trooper along Interstate
95 for having a tag cover
and windows that were too
darkly tinted. He was also
stopped near Dallas in July
and was given a warning
for speeding.
In 2005, Zimmerman
had to take anger man-
agement courses after he
was accused of attacking
an undercover officer who
was trying to arrest Zim-
merman's friend.
Later that year, Zim-
merman's former fiancee'
filed for a restraining or-
der against him, alleging
domestic violence. Zim-
merman responded by
requesting a restraining
order against her. Both
requests were granted.

No charges imnblack-vote-suppression allegations

The Associated Press -

- Allegations that a white
city clerk tried to suppress
the black vote in an elec-
tion -the incumbent black
mayor lost by one vote and
that also resulted in the.
ouster of a black city com-
missioner Will be dropped
with no criminal- charges
filed, State Attorney Willie
Meggs said Monday.
The Florida Department
of Law Enforcement is
about to close its inves-
tigation into/'complaints
ified after the June city
election in Sopchoppy, a
small town on the edge of
the Apalachicola National
Forest that's best known
for its "annual Worm
Grunting Festival. Mayor
Colleen Skipper-Mitchell
and- commissioner An-
ginita Rosier claimed in
the complaints that city
clerk Jackie Lawhon made
it more difficult for blacks
to cast balloisby question-
ing their residency..
But a summary of the in-
vestigation given toMeggs'
office said there was no

evidence of fraudulent or
corrupt acts by Lawhon
or'any city or elections of-
ficials, nor did they try to
influence or interfere with
anyone's right to vote.
"We looked at it all and
we find no voting irregu-
larities and no voting
fraud and nobody was
disenfranchised from vot-
ing," Meggs said. "I think
every vote was counted."
Meggs said, that some
people weren't allowed to
vote, but the investigation
found that they weren't
eligible to begin with.
Lawhon, whodidn'tcom-
.ment on the/case while it
was .under investigation,
said she was confident in-
vestigators wouldn't find
any wrongdoing.
"I knew in my heart all
the time that nobody at
city hall had donep any
of these things that we
were accused of doing,"
Lawhon said. "We had
done everything possible
to ensure that we gave the
people a fair election."
But she said it was up-
setting that the accusa-
tions put the town in a

bad light.
Sopchoppy has a popu-
lation of about 500 and is
about 35 miles southwest
of Tallahassee. Other than
cars zipping along U.S.
319, which leads to the
Gulf Coast beaches, little
traffic passes through the
picturesque town. Sop-
choppy boasts one grocery
store, two gas stations and
- seven churches.
The, biggest 'excitement,
Sopchoppy sees is the
annual Worm, Grunting
Festival, a tribute to local
folks who make their liv-
ing by going into th6 for-
est, hammering a wooden
stake into the ground and
rubbing it with' a metal
slab. The vibrations drive
worms to the surface,
where they are gathered
and sold as fishing bait.
Five candidates were on
the June 11 ballot for three
seats on the commission:'
The top three yote-getters -
were the winners. Eddie
Evans received 89 votes,
Nathan Lewis 75 and
Glenn Rudd 66. Therewere
65 ballots cast for Skipper-
Mitchell and 40 for Rosier.

Voters could select up to
three candidates.
Rosier claimed after the
election that Lawhon and
other city employees tried
to driye the vole against
her and Skipper-Mitchell.
Lawhon said Monday that
she and other city work-
ers, didn't advocate for or
against anyone on .the

maintained there were.

also said Meggs shouldn't

fice to begin with, con-
sidering that one 'of the
candidates is an assistant

said. "They have an ongo-

It'sabsolutely crazy.",-
Skipper-Mitchell didn't
immediately return a call
seeking comment.

Hyundai to market hydrogen vehicles

The Associated Press

DETROIT For years, the joke in
the auto industry was that a mass-
produced car that runs on hydro-
genr was always a decade away.
That will change next year wihen
Hyundai starts selling a Tucson SUV
powered by a hydrogen fuel cell. It
will be the first mass-market vehicle
of its type to be sold or leased in the
U'.S. -
"These things are now ready for
prime time," John Krafcik, Hyun-
dai's North American CEO, said last
week. His company plans to an-
nounce details of the new Tucson
on Wednesday at the Los Angeles
Auto Show.
Even as the industry focused on
battery-powered and hybrid cars.
automakers such as',Hyundai,
Honda and Toyota kept up research
on fuel cells. Now they appear to
have conquered obstacles such as
high costs, safety concerns and a
lack of filling stations. These ve-
hicles could help ;the companies
meet stricter future fuel-economy
Automakers have, been dabbling
in hydrogen-powered cars since the
1960s. General Motors announced
a test fleet of hydrogen-powered
Chetiy Equinoxes in the mid-2000s,
and Honda leased about two-dozen
FCN Clarity models for $600 per
month starting in 2005.
President George W% Bush al-
located $1.2 billion for hydrogen
research and said in his 2003 Stare
of the Union address: "The first car
driven by a child born today could
be powered by hydrogen and pol-
lution free." But the program was
largely scrapped by the Obania ad-
ministration, which focused more
on battery- powered vehicles.

Lady Pirates cap donunant run with state crown


In her 23rd year as a coach and,
her 10th leading the Sneads Lady
Pirates, coach Sheila Roberts finally
has the state title she has spent her,
career pursuing.
Roberts' Lady Pirates made it
happen Saturday in Kissimmee by
knocking off the Baker Lady Gators
in three sets by scores of 25-15, 25-
19, and 25-13 to give the school its
first-ever volleyball state title.
Sneads had made it to'five con-
secutive. regional finals going into
this season and advanced to the
state semifinals in 2011, but Rob-
erts and the Lady Pirates finally got
over the hump Saturday to make
school history.
"We finally did it," the coach said.
"It's been great. It's just awesome.
I don't think it has really sunk in.

When you've been trying-'!to do
something for that many years, it's
a great feeling to finally achieve it."
The Lady Pirates got a lot of con-
tributions from -both their young
and veteran players in Saturday's
win, with senior Logan Neel leading
the~way with 12 kills, while sopho-
mores Ashlyn Roberts and Em-
UH Glover added nine each, junior
Krissi Satterfield seven, and sopho-
more De'Aryll Green four.
Sophomore setter Logan McCord
guided the offense with 35 assists,
while Ashlyn Roberts led the de-
fense with 24 digs, sophomore Mal-
lory Beauchamp added 11 digs, and
Green posted two blocks.
While the underclassmen did
more than their share of heavy lift-
ing, Sheila Roberts said that it was
her three seniors Neel, Shelbi By-
ler, and Mallory McDaniel who
were there for the loss to Baker two

seasons ago who set the tone early.
"You could just tell 'that my se-
niors had their game faces on and
they meant business," the coach
said. "Logan Neel came out getting
kill after kill in the first few minutes
of the match, but it was a true team

Lawyer for FSU QIB-critical of state attorney

The Associated Press

for Florida State's Jameis Win-
ston criticized State Attorney
Willie Meggs Sunday for his pub-
lic comments about the ongo-
ing sexual assault investigation
of the Seminoles', quarterback
and for how the prosecutor has
handled the probe.
Tim Jansen released a state-
ment expressing concerns that
Meggs has made "extrajudicial
statements" about the inVes-
tigation during media inter- ,
views. Jansen accused Meggs of
addressing a confidential law
enforcement investigation and
inferring that witnesses have
been affected by "attorneys and
Jansen added that ,"We re-
spect the immense power Mr.
Meggs has in his investigative
process and pray that he will ob-
jectively analyze the facts as he ,
finds them, refrain from further
extrajudicial public comment,
and take all necessary steps to
ensure that this matter comes to
a quick resolution.
"We are confident that if those
steps are taken, this cloud will be
lifted and Mr.Winston will be full
exonerated of any wrongdoing."
When contacted Sunday eve-
ning by. The AssQciated Press.

Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston (5) calls a play during the second quarter of a game against Miami in
Tallahassee, Fla., on Nov. 2.

Meggs said, "I'i riot going to re-
spond to him."
The state attorney did say
prosecutors are still' interested
in speaking with Winston, but
!have not.
. "We will certainly ask to talk
to 'him," Meggs, said. "We can't
make, people talk to us. ... We
can't make suspects talk." ,
Meggs told the AP Saturday
he is concerned that media at-
tention has focused primarily
on Winston, 19, a Heisman Tro-

phy contender for the second-'
ranked Seminoles.
"We have a female victim here,
too, and my job is to make 'sure
that this victim or any victim of
a crime has their rights protect-
ed," Meggs' said.",... Everything
is now focused on Winston and
what's going to happen to him."
The alleged victim no longer
lives in Florida and Meggs also
would like to interviewer.
Tallahassee police on Wednes-
day released a heavily redacted

two-page, incident report that
does not, mention Winston by
name, but says the incident took
-place between 1:30 and 2 a.m.
last Dec. 7. It describes the sus-
pect in the sexual assault case'
as being between 5-foot-9 and
5-11. Winston is listed by Florida
State at 6-4. -
The' incident was reported
Dec. 7, 2012, and last week Jan-
sen said he had given officials
two affidais from eye witness-
es "that "completely, exonerate

my client." He believed the in-
vestigation was closed -months
The investigation became
public Wednesday after several -
news organizations made pub-
lic records requests with the po-
lice department. The case wasn't
given to prosecutors until this
"I have not been focusing on
that," Meggs said when asked
about the amount of time before
he received the case, "I will deal
with that at some later time.
Right now the important thing
is -protecting the rights of this
victim and that's what we're fo-
cusing on.,
"We'll focus on placing blame
once we get all the facts."

Saturday over the Bulldogs
before turning their sights
toward th'e game with No. 1
Alabama in two weeks. The
winner plays for the South-
eastern Conference title,
and perhaps a shot at the
national championship.
"Of course we're going to
enjoy this win," taigbackTre
Mason said afterward. "But
we started thinking about
it (the Alabama game) as
soon as that clock hit all ze-
roes, Coach (Gus) Malzahn
said, 'Onto the next,' in the
locker room."
This one wasn't settled
until 'the clock hit all ze-,
roes, even after Auburn
(10-1, 6-1 SEC) surged to
a 27-7 lead. Ricardo Louis
caught a desperation heave
from Nick 'Marshall that
deflected off Josh Harvey-
Clemons' hand in double
'coverage. The result was
a 73-yard touchdown on
fourth-and-18 with 25 sec-
onds left that will go down
as one of the more memo-
rable plays in SEC history.
Then it was onto the next
for a team that Malzahn
has led from 3-9 to being
ranked sixth in the nation.
"This team, they're spe-
cial," Malzahn said. "This

The next moment is sig-
nificantly bigger: Georgia

five things to know about

Kenseth's first season at
Joe Gibbs Racing was his
best in seven years, a title-
contending run that fell
19 points short of a cham-
pionship. The 2003 Sprint

The final match was another emphatic
effort in the tide game against a Bakerteam
that put Sneads out in 2011.
That match went five sets, but it only
took three for the Lady Pirates to redeem
themselves Satrday.
"The girls played really well from the
beginning. They came out dominant and
controlled Baker from start to finish just
like they've been controlling all of these
1A opponents," Roberts said. "It's been the
story against a lot of the top 1A teams that
we've played. I think we're just a little more
well-rounded than most of them."
The Lady Pirates were virtually untouch-
able against 1A competition this season,
winning 54 of 55 total sets against 1A teams,
with Blountstown in the district champi-
onship match the only one to get a set off
of Sneads. -
A 'And with seen of their top 10. players
returning for next season, it appears that
Sneads' reign atop Class IA may not be
over anytime soon.
"I would say we're pretty d'orninant in 1A
volleyball right now," Roberts said. "We're
losing three seniors, but we're going to start
immediately trying to rebuild and fill the
slots that they're going to leave. I feel like
we'll have another great shot and a great
run at it next year if we can stay focused
and as long as the girls keep having fun
and competing like they do. I feel blessed
to have them all. It's looking good and we're
excited about the future."
J For the coach, it has been 'a long time

coming and the result of a lot of hard work
'in and out of seasons over the past decade,
with Roberts saying that she is proud of
how far the program has come with the
players' participation and commitment to
competing at the highest level, as well as
the city and school's enthusiasm for the
"I just think looking back through the
years, it seems like volleyball at Sneads has
continued to progress each year. I wanted
to continue to up the level of play and the
commitment level and it's been an ongoing
process not only for them but for myself
to continue to push myself and leam and
become a beer coach," she said. "That's
what it's about, continually progressing
and seeing how far you can take it."
The level of participation and commit-
ment wasn't always so strong.
"When I first came to Sneads and called
for summer training, maybe three girls
showed up because they were playing
'travel softball and they thought that you
get to volfeyball when you can, find time
in between playing softball and whatever
else you have going on," the coach said.
"Through 'the years, we'vejust tried to up
the ante every year. We still have girls play-
ing other sports and thafs great, but they're
very focused and.serious about their off-
season training. It's not that they weren't
back then, but we've been trying to gradu-
ally up the intensity every year.
"Now it really has become a winning tra-
dition for us and the young girls know that
in order to be a part of it, they have to work
hard and be fully committed. The bar has
been set high by these girls and it makes
me proud to see that."

If you asked experts which is the best bridge maga-

The auction is straightforward. With a good, long
minor, no short suit and no thoughts of slam, North

This is a position that experts take in their stride,
but less capable players do not have down pat.
If you look at the full deal, declarer is going to take
the club finesse at trick three. It is going to lose, and
East will be wondering whether to shift to a spade or
to a heart. If he leads the wrong suit, declarer runs for
home with three hearts, one diamond and five clubs.
West must help his partner by dropping the dia-
mond 10 under South's king. The unnecessarily high
card is a suit-preference signal for the higher-ranking
