We reported last week that drug test

news in that statistic.
The good news is this doesn't repre-

the school district has become savvier
about what some students are doing to
circumvent the tests, or provide
And that's the bad news. A quick
search of the Internet reveals, there are
a number of ways, from buying clean
samples to other, more dubious mdth-
ods, of circumventing these drug tests.
It is unfortunate that some students
would.prefer to go this route, rather,
than just avoid drugs completely. But
it also raises some questions about the
usefulness of student testing.
Some studies indicate the tests have
no real discernable impact on drug use
among students. This is understand-"

Fla. adopts 'Common Core' academic standards
BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
TALLAHASSEE - Florida
became the latest state to adopt a
set of national benchmarks for stu-
dent learning in math and English
on Tuesday with the approval, of
the Common Core State
'Standards. The state Board of
Education voted unanimously in
favor of adopting the standards in a-
brief meeting on Tuesday.
Commissioner Eric Smith had rec-

state to adopt the standards, fol-
lowing approvals. in Massachusetts
and the District of Columbia last
week. In all, about 40 states are
expected to adopt the benchmarks
by this fall.
"This approval marks a vital
next step on Florida's long-stand-
ing and successful ,education
reform journey by strengthening
our curriculum standards for these
critical subjects and laying the
groundwork for the comparison of
our state's academic progress with
our nation and the world," said T.
Willard Fair, the board's chairman.
. The standards were produced by
the National Governors
Association and the Council of
Chief State School Officers to
replace a patchwork of varying
standards across states with a set
of uniform guidelines. The federal
government has not been involved
'in the project, though it has
encouraged adopting the standards
and included it as part of scoring in
the "Race to the Top" grant com-
petition, in which Florida is an
applicant. Current standards vary
significantly in each state.
In a study released earlier this
'month, the Thomas B. Fordham
Institute said Florida's standards in
math and English are comparable
in rigor and clarity to the Common
Core standards. The study praised
Florida's English standards as
being clearly written, though it
said they were sometimes repeti-
tive and failed to address
The state's math standards also
received high marks.
Smith said the board will dis-
cuss implementing the standards
over time at a future meeting.

standards, implementation could
be costly and hasn't been exten-

AP LEGAL AFFAIRS WRITER.
MIAMI - BP PLC and
the other companies'
involved in the Gulf of
Mexico oil spill are faced
with fast-multiplying law-
suits that will provoke one
of the most drawn-out and
costliest legal battles in U.S.
history, one that could easily
consume the $20 billion set
aside by BP to pay for the

experts and attorneys
One veteran complex liAd-
gation attorney estimated
that unless there is a quick
settlement that satisfies all
sides, it will be 2015 before
any trials begin and At least
2028. before appeals and

"When you're looking at
an incident like this, which

Hollabaugh said. "It just

through the process."
So far, at least 300 federal
lawsuits have been filed in
12 states against BP and. the
other three maih companies

There are also a few

lawsuits filed, mainly in
state courts, by workers who
survived the Deepwater

claiming the company's
mistakes led to a sharp drop
in its stock price.
A federal judicial, panel is
meeting Thursday in Boise,
Idaho, to consider whether
to consolidate some or all of
the lawsuits for pretrial deci-
sions before a single judge, a
development that most
observers say is a foregone
conclusion. BP and the other
companies favor federal
court in Houston - near
their major U.S. operations
- while a majority of plain-
tiffs' attorneys have suggest-

Police, activists prepare days ahead of Ariz. law

ASSOCIATED PRESS WRITERS
PHOENIX - The sheriff of Arizona's
most populous county is making room in a
vast outdoor jail and determined to round up
illegal immigrants to fill it. Police from the
U.S.-Mexico border to the Grand Canyon
are getting last-minute training. And
protests and marches are planned through-
Arizona's new immigration law takes
effect Thursday, creating a potentially
volatile mix of police, illegal immigrants
and thousands of activists, many planning to
show up without identification as a show of
solidarity. At least one group plans to block
access to federal offices, daring officers to
ask them their immigration status.
"Our message for that day is: 'Don't com-
ply, don't buy,'" said activist Liz Hourican,
whose group, CodePink, plans to block the
driveway for immigration offices in down-
town Phoenix.As both sides prepare, a fed-
eral judge is deciding whether to step in and
block the law. It requires officers enforcing
other laws to check a person's immigration
status if they suspect the person is in the
country illegally. It also bans illegal immi-
grants from soliciting work in a public
Police across the state scrambled on
Tuesday to train officers, including on how
to avoid racial profiling, and plan for a
potential influx of detainees.
The hardest-line approach is expected in
the Phoenix area, where Maricopa County
Sheriff Joe Arpaio plans his 17th crime and
immigration sweep. He plans to hold the
sweep, regardless of any ruling by U.S.
District Judge Susan Bolton.
Arpaio, known for his tough stance
against illegal immigration, plans to send
about 200 deputies and volunteers out, look-
ing for traffic violators, people wanted on
criminal warrants and others. He's used that
tactic before to arrest dozens of people,
many of them illegal immigrants.
"We don't wait. We just do it," he said. "If
there's a new law out, we're going to
enforce it." He said that the space he made
in the complex of military surplus tents can
handle 100 people, and that he will find
room for more if necessary.
Elsewhere in the state, police officials
said they didn't expect any dramatic events.
They were busy wrapping up training ses-
sions this week, with some agencies saying
that untrained officers will not be allowed
on the streets.
Many of the state's 15,000 police officers
have been watching a DVD released this
month that signs that might indicate a per-
son is an illegal immigrant are speaking

Illinois' disgraced former governor

Adam told jurors they knew the7
truth after listening to hours of FBI
wiretap tapes played by prosecutors.

Sneads finds success at camp
BY DUSTIN KENT

The Sneads Lady Pirates volleyball
team competed in a team camp at the
University of Florida over the weekend.
Sneads sent both its varsity and junior
varsity squads, which comprised two of 49
total teams at the camp.
Lady Pirates coach Sheila Roberts said
she was very happy with her team's per-

"'We did great. We took the JV team for
the first time ever, and they did really well,

The teams were split up into pools in an
attempt to match up equally talented
Both Lady Pirate squads finished the
weekend at .500.
The first day of the camp consisted of'
players being run through a variety of
drills by college coaches and players, to
improve their overall skill level.
The last two days of the camp were
comprised of games, which began at 9
a.m. and lasted until 9:30 p.m. each night.
It was the sixth consecutive year that the
Sneads volleyball team has attended the

"It's a very helpful thing, plus;it's a big
team-building time. The girls stay togeth-

"We'll be offering a program that
will be open the program up for the
upcoming freshman through rising
seniors," he said.,
"We'll try to schedule a little bit
tougher competition and maybe
some older teams. That's the only
way you will get better is to play
against tougher and older teams."
Wiggins said there were many
benefits to playing good competition
in the offseason.
"It's very beneficial. It gets you a

them with opportunities also.
"It gives the young players a
chance to see what will be expected

facing," he said. "For the experi-
enced players, it allows them to
improve their level of play, and to
possibly work on securing their posi-

Brennan Boesch, who was
erased on a double play.

Garza, who has worked with a
sports psychologist to harness
his emotions on the mound,
threw 120 pitches. He relied
almost exclusively on his fast-
ball to tame an injury-riddled
Tigers lineup missing Carlos
Guillen, Brandon Inge and
In addition to joining Terry
Mulholland (1990) and Mark
Buehrle (2007) as the only pitch-
ers in the past 45 years to face
the minimum 27 batters in a no-
hitter that wasn't a perfect game,
Garza (11-5) tied a career high
with his llth victory.
The Rays, who have been no-
hit twice this season and three
times since last July, finally
wound up on the right side of a
memorable pitching perform-
Two of the no-hitters thrown
against them in the past 12
months were perfect games, and
they didn't have a hit off Detroit
starter Max Scherzer until ex-
Tiger Matt Joyce's sixth-inning
grand slam gave Garza all the
run support he needed.
"Of course I'm happy for us,
but I'm happy for him," Tampa
Bay manager Joe Maddon said.
"This is the kind of game that
could catapult somebody like
him who has this kind of ability.

, The Bengals reached a
contract agreement with
receiver Terrell Owens on
Tuesday, a person familiar
with the situation told The
Associated Press. He's
expected to report to train-

The Bengals were his
first choice, giving, him a
chance to team with close,
friend Chad 'Ochocinco,
who has already dubbed
the pair Batman and Robin.
The Bengals made.an offer
on Monday, and Owens
accepted a day later.
Players are required to

thing out of a reality show.
Ochocinco gushed about

show called "Ochocinco:
.The Ultimate Catch" cur-
rently running on VH1.
After Ochocinco's show
comes "The T.O. Show."
Ochocinco's last -'show
involved eliminating two
contestants. Owens' last'

Brown doesn't mind. He
has a history of providing
extra chances :to players
who have caused' trouble,
allowing them to extend
their careers in Bengals

years, the Bengals also
.have signed receiver Chris
Henry, running back
Cedric Benson, running

receiver Matt Jones, all of
whom were let go because
of off-field issues.
"Yes, people can make

It was the last straw
Dear Annie: I am 55 and have been married
to Jim, age 73, for five years. Jim's wife died
six years before we met, and his two children
became furious when he began dating, saying
he was being unfaithful. They badgered Jim
until he, deeded them his house and property.
Jim also gave each kid $250,000 in cash and
paid off the mortgages on their homes.
The deeds specify that Jim can stay on the
property as long as he lives, but make no
provision for a surviving spouse.
When we married, Jim asked the.
kids to allow me to continue to
live there after he dies, but they
refused. After that, whenever
the kids asked for money, Jim 4
told them it was time they
lived within their means. (They
have good,jobs.) They became
hostile and accused Jim of
choosing me over them. They
have not allowed him to see the grand-
children for three years. The only time
they speak to him is to demand he divorce
Without telling Jim, I sent both his chil-
dren a polite e-mail asking what it would
take for us to be a family again. They told Jim
about the letter, and he accused me of interfer-
ing in his relationship with his kids, saying it
was none of my business and I have "ruined all
possibility of reconciliation." I was shocked by
his reaction, but apologized. However, Jim will
not accept my apology. Was I out of line? What
about his kids? Is there any hope for this fami-
The most important call for handling a pre-emptiveovercall is
responder's negative double. The double's primary job is to try to
find a fit in an unbid major. But as we will see tomorrow, at-a high
level the negative double is less well-defined. First, though, here
is a textbook example. After South opens one club and West
makes a two-heart weak jump overcall, North doubles, negative.
This shows four spades ard usually nine-plus points. Over East's
defensive raise to three hearts, South competes with three
spades, and North raises aggressively to four spades.
. West leads the heart king. How should South plan the play?j
Did West have a more effective opening salvo?
The defenders are threatening to take two spades, one heart
and one club. Declarer cannot avoid the black-suit losers, so
takes the first trick, cashes his diamond ace, overtakes the dia-
mond queen with dummy's king, and discards his heart loser on
the diamond jack. What must he do next?
It would be easy to make the mistake of leading a trump.
However, here, East could win with his king and lead his last dia-
mond. South would have to ruff (West throws a club) and play
another trump, but East would win and return a trump to dummy.
Since South is now out of trumps, East would get the club ace,
and West his heart queen. To avoid this, South must ruff
dummy's heart nine before leading a trump. Then, when East
returns that diamond, South can ruff and play another trump.
Everything is under control. West defeats four spades by leading
a club, which gains him a club ruff.
ly? - Tired of Drama
Dear Tired: Jim is worn down from fighting
with his kids, defending his marriage and miss-
ing his grandchildren. Although your inten-
tions were good, the e-mail was the straw that
broke the camel's back. His selfish children
used it as an excuse to attack him in force. Ask
Jim to go with you for counseling to see
whether your relationship can withstand the
pressure. If he won't go, go without him.
Dear Annie: My best friend is having an
online affair. She feels it is only a
minor form of cheating since
they are not meeting in real life.
Frankly, in my book, it's cheat-
S- ing all the way around.
' 1 I told her that if her husband.
asks me about it, I will not lie
to him. But I am so uncomfort-
'able with the situation that I no
longer call her. or 'visit their
S \\ home. Even if she were to stop
e-mailing* this guy, I still
would not lie to her husband if
1 he asked why we've stopped
speaking. Is this friendship a write-off? -
Confused in California
Dear Confused: It certainly sounds like it.
Your friend is behaving terribly, and we agree
that you should not be a party to her lies. The
most you can do is suggest she get into coun-
seling with her husband so they can figure out
why she is willing to risk her marriage for her
online buddy. Otherwise, keep your distance.

Afghan army struggles with ethnic divisions
BY HEIDI VOGT
ASSOCIATED PRESS WRITER
Afghanistan - The Afghan sol-
diers look like they belong. They
wear beards, carry Soviet-era
rifles and stride, confidently
through fields of wheat, melons
and okra. In one village, a young
girl brings them a jug of milk to
drink under the shade of a tree. ,,
Officers in the U.S. Army rou-
tinely praise their Afghan part-
ners: They know the culture, can
relate to the villagers and under-
stand regional politics.
But in southern Afghanistan,
the focus of the U.S. war effort,
nearly all the Afghan soldiers are
foreigners too. Most don't even
speak the local language. They
have to communicate through
interpreters hired for the,
Despite ethnic quotas and
recruiting drives, the Afghan
army is still dominated by north-
ern minorities who were
oppressed by the Taliban. Nearly
all Taliban are ethnic Pashtuns.
Although many Pashtuns, the
country's biggest ethnic commu-
nity, are not connected. to the
Taliban, the rift between north-
erners and the southern Pashtuns
Now this ethnically skewed
army is ,pouring into southern
Afghanistan as part of an opera-
tion to squeeze the Taliban out of
strongholds here and win the loy-
alty of the main prize - the
When the international forces
leave - whether it is next year or
a decade from now - this mixed
bag of soldiers will either rise to
the .challenge or allow the couq-
try to fall back into a collection of
loosely affiliated territories ruled
by triballyy based militias.
"We can be here in the Pashtun
area for 1,000 years, but they will
never be our friends," said Lt.
Gulagha Haksar, a 30-year-old
Afghan soldier teamed up with
U.S. troops here in the strategic
Arghandab Valley. An ethnic
Tajik, Gulagha -remembers the
killing sprees by the Taliban in
his hometown in northeastern
"During the Taliban regime,
whenever they arrested a Tajik,
they beat him. They killed many
people," Gulagha said.
Afghanistan has never been a
strongly unified nation, but eth-
nic divisions intensified during
the Soviet Union occupation of
the 1980s, when resistance fac-
tions organized along ethnic
lines. When these fighters unseat-
ed a Soviet-backed leader in
1992, they became embroiled in a
Taliban seized Kabul in 1996 and
ruled from the capital until they
were ousted five years later by
the U.S.-led coalition and its
Afghan, allies in the Northern
Alliance resistance group, made
mostly of ethnic Tajiks, Uzbeks
To give the military a national
character, the Afghan army now
has ethnic quotas for officers: 40-
45 percent Pashtun, 30-35 per-
cent Tajik, 10-12 percent Hazara
and 8-10 percent Uzbek and
other groups, according to Gen.
Mohammad, Zahir Azimi, a
spokesman for the Defense
That's roughly in line with the
population. But the army does
not track the actual ethnic make-
up of the officer corps, so it's dif-
ficult to know if the quotas are
really filled. There are no quotas
for enlisted soldiers.
The Afghan army tries to
ensure a mix of ethnic groups in
each brigade of enlisted soldiers,
but it is hard to find a brigade that
northerners do not dominate. Of
the nearly 40 soldiers based with
the Americans at Combat
Outpost Ware in the Arghandab
Valley, only two are Pashtun. One
of them is the cook.

only two are Pashtun. One of

When the Afghans go on patrol
in surrounding villages, they are
treated as outsiders.
"When they sqe us, the old men
say, 'They are the sons of the
British,'" Gulagha said, explain-
ing that the villagers equate both
the Americans and the Afghan
soldiers with the British attempt
to colonize Afghanistan in the
Even in Kandahar city, which
is more diverse than the villages,
there's a reticence to trust the
"I want my Pashtun brothers to
be in the Afghan army. If NATO
leaves here, the outsiders will
