Leader of Mexico's Zetas drug cartel captured
The Associated Press
MEXICO CITY Miguel Angel
Trevino Morales, the notoriously
brutal leader of the feared Zetas
drug cartel, has been captured in
the first major blow against an or-
ganized crime leader by a Mexican
administration struggling to drive
down persistently high levels of
violence, a U.S. federal official
Trevino Morales, known as "Z-40,",
was captured by Mexican Marines
in Nuevo Laredo, the Mexican me-
dia reported: The U.S. official who
confirmed the media reports was
not authorized to speak to the press
and asked not to be identified.
Trevind's capture removes the
leader of a corps of special forces
defectors who, splintered off into
their own cartel and spread across
Mexico, expanding from drug deal-
ing into extortion and human
Along the way, the Zetas authored
some of the worst atrocities of Mex-
ico's drug war, slaughtering dozens,
leaving their bodies on display and
gaining a reputation as perhaps the
most terrifying of the country's nu-
metous ruthless cartels.
The capture of Trevino Morales
is a public-relations victory for
President Enrique Pena Nieto, who

came into office promising to drive
down levels of homicide, extortion
and kidnapping but has struggled
to, make a credible dent in crime
At the same time, Pena Nieto's
pledge to focus on citizen safety
over other crimes sparked wor-
ries among U.S. authorities that he
would ease back on a bi-national
strategy aimed at decapitating
drug cartels. The arrest of Trevino,
a man widely blamed for both mas-
sive northbound drug trafficking
and the deaths of untold scores of
Mexicans and Central American
migrants, will almost certainly earn
praise from Pena Nieto's U.S. and
Mexican critics alike.
Trevino Morales' rise from the
streets of Nuevo Laredo to the top. of'
Mexico's drug trafficking-world was
fueled by a brutality that stunned a
population inured to violence.
He began his career as a teenage
gofer for the Los Tejas gang, which
controlled nmiost crime in his home-'
town across the border from Lar-
edo, Texas. He soon graduated from
washing cars and running errands
to running drugs across the border,
and was recruited into the Matam-
oros-based Gulf canel, which ab-
sorbed Los Tejas when it took over
drug dealing in the valuable border
Trevino Morales joined the Zetas,
a group of Mexicani special forces
deserters who defected to work as
hit men and bodyguards for the
Gulf cartel in the late 1990s.

Sun Belt expects boost from Petrino
The Associated Press
NEW ORLEANS Bobby Petrino
expects his only year in the Sun Belt
Conference with Western Kentucky
to be a memorable one, and not just
because it's his first season back in
coaching after a humbling one-year
He expects to win.
The program -he's taken over went
to its first bowl game last year and
now aims for a league title in what
will be the Hilltoppers last Sun Belt
campaign before moving to Confer-
ence USA in 2014.
"This is our one and only year in
the Sun Belt and that's our goal, is
to win the conference," *Petrino
said matter-of-factly Monday to a
table crowded with reporters at the
Sun Belt's annual media day. "As we
build this program, we want to go to
a bowl game every year and win the
bowl game and then be conference
Many coaches say that.
Petrino has the resume to back
it up. He might, be the most ac-
complished coach ever hired by a'
member of the 13-year-old football
WKU was picked fourth in a pre-
season poll of eight Sun Belt coach-
es, behind co-favorites Louisiana-
Lafayette and Louisiana Monroe,
and two-time defending champion
Arkansas State. But most of the
coaches agreed that any of the top
four teams in the poll have a good
chance to win the league, and that
the main reason Petrino's squad
was voted fourth was because he is
developing a new quarterback.
Petrino has yet to name a starter,
though junior Brandon Doughty
appears to be the front-runner.
Petrino is 75-26 in eight seasons
as a Division I college head coach,
missing out on a bowl only once.. He
led both Louisville and Arkansas to
their first BCS games and if not for
off-the-field problems, he might
still be coaching the Razorbacks.
Arkansas fired Petrino in April
2012 for, a "pattern of misleading"
behavior following an accident in
which the coach was injured while
riding a motorcycle with his mis-
tress as a passenger.
The 52-year-old coach's chance to
return to college football in an area
where he was popular from his days
as Louisville's coach arrived last
December, when Willie Taggart left
WKU for South Florida after leading
the Hilltoppers to a 7-5 regular sea-
son record and the bid to the Little
Caesars Pizza Bowl.
"It was a good fit," Petrino said. "It

was something that was best for ev-
eryone involved in my family. I was
able to get back in state of Kentucky
with ,the people who have been so
good to me and my family. ... and
I think'it's a great situation for the
team that we have coming back."
WKU Athletic Director Todd Stew-
art said he anticipated getting some
heat for hiring Petrino, but has been
delighted by the reception the coach
has received from fans and the way
his presence' has raised the profile
of what he sees as an emerging mid-
major football program.
"The places we want to go as apro-
gram, he's:lived that," Stewart said
of Petrino. "A lot of times, if you hire
somebody who's had a lot of success
maybe they're at the very end of
their career and might be 15 years
removed from their glory years. He's
two years removed from it."
Stewart said Petrino has been'ac-
cessible to fans, whether it be chat-
ting with them in restaurants or
fielding questions after speaking
"He's not' been a recluse at all,"
Stewart said. "He's been very open
and very approachable and the
community has really embraced
Six years ago, Stewart noted, WKU
was a Football Championship Sub-
division team playing on a home
field with stands along only one
sideline. Now they've got a coach
whose teams have. been to the Or-
ange, Sugar and Cotton bowls in the
past half-dozen years.
"I'm not sure how much of an
identity we had in south-central
Kentuckyin terms of football," Stew-
art said. "By hiring him, it's given us
a much greater identity."
. The rest of the league expects a
boost, at least in terms of publicity,
from Petrino's presence on the side-
lines as well, even if only for one
"It's just showing that the confer-
ence is developing into one of the
better mid-major conferences to
get a big name like that to come and
coach," Louisiana-Lafayette center
Andre Huval said.
Petrino's younger brother, Paul, is.
the new coach at Idaho, which will.
join the Sun Belt as a football-only
member in 2014. Paul Petrino said
it was too bad he and his more ac-
complished older brother could
not coach in the Sun Belt together,
but predicted Bobby Petrino would
make the already high-scoring Sun,
Belt even more interesting to watch
"Everyone will just enjoy the way
he dissects the game of football, the
way he attacks people," said Paul
Petrino; who was on his brother's
staffs at Louisville and Arkansas.
"'Just the way his teams play would
be great for any league."
Notes: The Sun Belt will have two
bowl tie-ins this season, one with
the New Orleans Bowl and the oth-
er with. the GoDaddy.com Bowl in
Mobile. However, Commissioner
Karl Benson said he expects in the
near future to have a third tie-in an-
nounced for 2014, possibly with a
newly created bowl. Last year, the
Sun Belt also had only two tie-ins,
but had two teams (Louisiana-Mon-
roe and Western Kentucky) receive

This is a 2012 photo of Matt Russell of the Denver Broncos NFL
football team. The Broncos have suspended two executives
who are facing drunken driving charges. Director of player
personnel Russell was suspended indefinitely without pay on
Monday and director of pro personnel Tom Heckert was sus-

The Associated Press
/ ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -
The Denver Broncos came
down hard on their two
executives facing drunken
driving charges, suspend-
ing them'without pay and
making it clear they must
straighten out their lives if
they want to work in the'
NFL again. -
'Director of player, per-
sonnel Matt Russell was
and director of pro person-
nel Tom Heckert was sus-
pended for month.
Team president Joe Ellis
said both men expressed
remorse. But "this in no
way excuses their con-
duct," Ellis said.
Russell and Heckert will
be provided with confi-
dential treatment, reha-
bilitation and counseling
services and must comply
with these' programs be-
fore they're allowed to re-
turn to work, Ellis said.
While the two "will be
punished and held ac-
countable, our first priority
is their health and well-be-
ing. We must ensure they
receive any care they need
and support them however
possible," Ellis said.
While some critics were
calling for the executives'
ouster,' Ellis emphasized,
"We're not inclined to tear
down lives even further.
We're inclined to help peo-
ple rebuild themselves."
The Broncos issued the
penalties Monday 'after
consulting with the NFL

ment with the Broncos,

"When I was named to
this position two years
ago, I spokeof the role this
organization has in the
community. We all have an
to represent this team in
the appropriate manner at
all times," Elway said. "It's
that two'members of my
staff acted so irresponsibly.
Simply put, it's unaccept-
able and inexcusable.".
"I was extremely con-
cerned when Tom Heckert
notified me of his arrest in
June. We talked about it as
a staff, reinforced the intol-
erable nature of his actions
and notified the league as
we began the disciplinary
process. To hear of Matt
Russell's incident last week
was especially- disturbing
considering the timing
and severity of those alle-
gations," Elway added.
"While Matt and Tom
have apologized and taken
accountability, it's most
important they take advan-
tage of whatever help they
need. We will learn from
this and take the necessary
action as we move forward
in a positive way."
The punishment reflect-

we believe is significant

they can improve their lives

The Marianna All Stars had few
troubles in their first game thanks
mostly to a bundle of walks and er-

Marianna scored three runs in the
first inning, two in the second, and
seven more in the third on three
walks, two hit batters, two errors,
and an RBI sacrifice fly by Waylon

Baker got a single run in the fourth,

Dear Ann!e: After my bitter divorce, my
son decided to live with his father in an-
other state. I have spent thousands of dol-
lars on airplane tickets, hotels, car rentals
and restaurants. I have never forgotten
my two grandchildren's birthdays.,
Here's the rub: To saye money, I have
[raveled alone and stayed with my son.
Recently, I sraved.for four days. After traV-
eling1, 000 miles, I spent two hours in a
shuttle because my son did not pick me
up at the airport as promised. When I ar-
ried at their house, there was nothing to
eat. I had to' ask my son to make some-
thing, as I do not feel comfortable in their
kitchen. My grandson gave up his bed for
me, and the room was a mess (to say the
least). His bathroom sink and tub were
clogged, and my daughter-in-law expect-
ed me to clean them. I also had to ask for
On one of the four nights, they left me
alone while my daughter-in-law went
to a concert with her girlfriends and
stayed overnight, my grandchildren had
sleepovers, and my son went to a bar (he
is a hardworking alcoholic).
The player who does not pay any attention to the
opening lead has no advantage over the player who sees
it but fails to work out what information it imparts.
Sometimes declarer can work out what to do just by
analyzing the opening lead..
In this example, how should South play in three no-
trump after West leads a fourth-highest spade five?
This is surely the most common two-bid auction. It is
true that on this deal, three no-trump can be defeated
if West is inspired enough to lead a heart, and five di-
amonds can always be made with a good guess in the
trump suit. But if you try to get to five of a minor with
two balanced hands opposite each other, you will be a
big loser in the long run. Go for the nine-trick game un-
less you are sure it cannot make.
South starts with seven top tricks: two spades, two dia-
monds and three clubs. And if the diamonds run, there
is an overtrick waiting in the wings. But if the diamonds
are 3-0, who has the tripleton?
Read West's lead. How many spades did he start with?
Since South can see the two, three and four, West must
have led from exactly a four-card suit. And if he is void in
diamonds, he must have at least five hearts or five clubs
and surely would have led from that suit length rules
in no-trump. So only East can be void in diamonds.
Declarer should take the first trick and cash the dia-

might get a small stipend
from one source, while
another could yield large.
.When my granddaughter showed me
her 8th grade graduation book, she talked
about her loving family and mentioned
her grandparents on her mom's side.
(They live close.) She never once men-
tioned my husband or me.
Do I continue-to travel all these miles
for this type of abuse, or do I go only when
I can afford a hotel-and car rental? They
seem to have busy lives and make no time
for this grandma.
I HAVE FEELINGS, TOO.
Dear Feelings: It's difficult to be the
grandparent who lives far away. It's ex-
pensive to travel,, so those visits are infre-
quent. It takes effort to maintain a close
relationship, and it. sounds as if your son
and his wife prefer not to extend them-
selves, which is sad. You don't have to
travel more often than you can afford, and
be sure to invite' your son and his family
to visit you, as well. Then find other ways
to stay in touch with the grandchildren
Facebook, email, texting, Skype; letters
and phone calls. They need to know you

REQUEST FOR RELEASE OF FUNDS
T6wn of Campbellton Neighborhood
On or about August 02, 2013 the Town of
Campbellton will submit a request to the
Florida Department of Economic Opportunity
(DEO) for the release of Community Develop-
ment Block Grant funds under Title I of the
Housing and Community Development (HCD)
Act of 1974, as amended, to undertake a proj-
ect in relation to the Town of Campbellton
Neighborhood Revitalization Project: The Town
of Campbellton intends to make improvements
to their existing water system (Service Area 1).
The Town is currently served by two wells,
Well #3 and Well #4. Well #3 was constructed
in 1989 and is an oil-lubed well. The outdated
oil lubricated system is resulting in the well
having to be taken off line due to bacteriologi-
cal test failures. Well #3 has shown significant
wear and has a reduced pumping rate from 200
gpm to 125 gpm. Well pump #3 will be re-
placed by a new water lubed system capable of
producing at least 200 gpm. The obsolete elec-
trical motor starter and control system at Well
#3 will be replaced. In addition, a backup
emergency generator will be installed at Well
#3. The chlorination system at Well #3 and
Well #4 will. be replaced. The SCADA (Supervi-
sory Control and Data Acquisition) system con-
trolling the water system operation and provid-
ing the FDEP required alarm functions is obso-
lete and non-functioning; The SCADA system
will be replaced at Well #3, Well #4 and the
elevated tank. The old abandoned elevated.
water tank is a major safety hazard and will
be demolished and removed. Due to unknown
conditions that may exists with Well #3, the
rehabilitation could also include replacement
of the casing and possible redrilling/ recondi-
tioning of the.well due to the current failure of
water testing reports..
As future need, the Town of Campbellton de-,,
sires to complete upgrades to the undersized
waterlines of the City's central water system.
