At least for now.

The common theme: Each

Green streets, next door to the .
The work should commence
some time early next week,
according to Rich Mulder, owner
of Richard Mulder Construction.
He's entitled to all the salvage
material, but said he's willing to
give away the last piece of furni-
ture that belonged to the former
residents - two sisters who lived
in each end of the duplex.
Unless someone takes the old
piano, it will probably be burned,
It's a Brunton Cabinet Grand.
Printing on the piano further
describes it as a "special" out of

First Baptist Church member
Ralph Harrison said not much is
known about the piano, including

basically in tune even though it '
hasn't been played in yeats. At
least some of the keys that did
work had rich sound. Mulder is
willing to allow someone to haul "
it away before the demolition
gets under way.
The church bought the house
some years ago, but has never
consistently used it. Harrison said Randall Kelley works on removing wood from a home at the cor-

Publisher: Valeria Roberts
Managing Editor: Michael Becker
If you are renting a home, an apart-
ment or a trailer in the state of
Florida, the chances are fair to good
that a meth lab may have been located
there at some point.
And what are the chances that you
may be informed of that? Not so
good. And the chances that the proper-
ty was thoroughly cleaned and made
ready to be habitable? Hard to say.
Unlike a number of other states,
Florida has no laws or regulations
Those who may argue it doesn't
matter need to think again.
In Colorado, for instance, the state
requires that the site of a former meth
lab be cleaned, and that the property
be inspected. Because most of the
chemicals used to make meth are haz-
Sardous, cleanup need to be thorough,
and theproperty cannot be rented out
until it passes inspection.
Ducts, carpeting, ceiling and walls
can be saturated with these hazardous
chemicals, and may need to be
removed. Furniture and drapes must
often be disposed of, as well.
Plumping must be checked, as most
cooks simply dump the waste down
Failure to clean up properly can and
does cause health problems for those
who may occupy the property after-
wards. Children are particularly vul-
nerable. The costs can be. expensive,
even prohibitive, and must be borne
by the property owner.
Understandably, few landlords are
willing to shoulder this burden unless
required to do so. In Colorado's case,
the law offers immunity from civil
suits from any future occupants if the
property is cleaned and inspected.
Florida's failure to address this issue

Judgment day approaches
BY BYRON YORK
Say you're a Democratic
member of Congress. You
proudly cast your vote for
Obamacare, you cheered when
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi
hailed it as the achievement of
a generation, and you scoffed
* at Republicans who vowed to
repeal it. Now you're running
for re-election, and a voter
asks: What is the most impor-
tant thing you've done in the
past two years?
The answer should be easy.
In passing the national health-
care bill, you accomplished
something your party dreamed
of for decades. It was your
most important vote, and now
is the time to take credit for it.
Except it's not.
Recently, top Democratic
pollsters Celinda Lake and
Stanley Greenberg conducted
focus groups in Las Vegas,
Nev.; Charlotte, N.C.;
Philadelphia, Pa.; and St.
Louis, Mo. They also conduct-
ed a national poll of 1,000
likely voters and an online poll
of 2,000 more likely voters.
They wanted to measure the
public's feelings about
Obamacare and help
Democrats make an effective
case for the bill they passed in
The researchers found what
they call a "challenging envi-
ronment," which is a nicer
way of saying "disaster in the
making." Voters simply aren't
buying the Democratic case
that healthcare reform will
insure more than 30 million
currently uninsured people and
save money at the same time.
And when they think about
their own health care, people
worry that reform will mean
less, not more, availability of
care, and at a higher cost.
Faced with that bad news,
Lake and Greenberg came up
with several recommendations
for Democratic candidates. ï¿½
When talking about
Obamacare, Democrats should
"keep claims small and credi-
ble." They should promise to
"improve" the law. They
should avoid talking about pol-
icy and stick to "personal sto-
ries" of people who will bene-
fit from Obamacare. And
above all, the pollsters advise,
"don't say the law will reduce
costs and deficit."
It's a stunning about-face for
a party that saw national health
care as its signature accom-
plishment. "This is the first
time we've seen from
Democrats that they clearly
understand they have a serious
problem in terms of selling
this legislation," says
Republican pollster David
The reluctance to defend
Obamacare as a cost-cutter and
deficit-reducer is particularly
telling. Wasn't that the No. 1
reason for passing the bill in
the first place? "This legisla-
tion will ... lower costs for
families and for businesses and
for the federal government,
reducing our deficit by over $1
trillion in the next two
decades," President Obama
said when he signed the bill
into law on March 23. Now,
Democrats are throwing that
argument out the window.
It's no mystery why the
party is in retreat. The public's
disapproval of Obamacare has-
n't changed in the past five
months. The RealClearPolitics.
average of recent polls shows
51 percent of Americans
oppose the new law, while 39
percent support it. A variety of
pollsters - Rasmussen, CNN,
Pew and CBS News - all'
find significantly more .opposi-
tion than support. And there's
not just opposition but enthusi-
asm for outright repeal.
"Overall support for repeal has
ranged from 52 percent to 63 .
percent since the law was
passed by Congress in March,"
writes Rasmussen. . .
The story might be even
worse than that for Democrats.
Everyone knows the public's
top issue is the economy. It has
been since before Obama took
office. So when the president
,and Democratic congressional
leadership devoted a year to
passing national health care,
Republicans charged they were
ignoring the public's wishes.
Now, when Democrats admit
that Obamacare won't cut
costs or reduce deficits, they
open themselves up to a more
serious charge: They spent a
year working on something
that-will actually cost jobs and
make things worse.
"Before, it looked like they
were just on the wrong topic,"
Winston says. "Now, it makes
it look like they're actually
going to hurt the economy."
No wonder Obama and
Democratic leaders are con-
stantly saying they want to
look forward, not backward.
They don't want to dwell on
ancient history, like the events
of 2009 and early 2010. But
there is no chance in the world
Republicans will let them for-
Just a few months ago,
Obama issued a public chal-
lenge to opponents who seek
to dump Obamacare. "For
those Republicans and folks
who are on the 'repeal' plat-
form, my attitude is, go for it,"
the president told a cheering
crowd at a Democratic
fundraiser in Florida on April
15. "I'll have that fight. We'll
have that argument."
Well, the time to fight, the
time to argue, has arrived. But
with everything on the line,
the president's party is trying
to run away.

Jones, who has about 50 followers,
gained some local notoriety last year
when he posted signs in front of his

other than biblical truth and incites rad-

we have been called to bring forth," he
said last week. "And because of that,
we do not feel like we can back down."

Clinton calls plan to burn Quran 'disgraceful act'

WASHINGTON - Secretary

church's threat to burn copies of
the Muslim holy book to mark
the ninth anniversary of the Sept.
11 attacks a "disrespectful, dis-
Others in the Obama adminis-

Attorney General Eric Holder,
who called it idiotic and danger-
ous. A State Department
spokesman branded the planned
protest "un-American" while
other officials warned that it
could threaten U.S. troops, diplo-
mats and travelers overseas.
The Christian minister organiz-
ing the Quran burning said he
will go ahead in spite of the gov-
ernment's concerns. Pastor Terry

gelical Christian church in
Gainesville, Fla., with an anti-
Islam philosophy, said he had

Suddenly, a raft of tax-break proposals from Obama
BY TOM RAUM
ASSOCIATED PRESS WRITER
WASHINGTON - President Barack
Obama's proposed tax breaks for business
sound like ideas that have enjoyed broad
Republican backing in the past. But in
today's toxic political atmosphere, he's
unlikely to get much - if any - GOP
Still, his plans put Republicans on the
spot, making it harder for them to say no to
legislation they once embraced.
In a speech on Wednesday in Cleveland,
Obama will ask Congress to let businesses
quickly write off 100 percent of their,
spending on new plants and equipment
Its part of a raft of new Obama proposals
to spur job creation and help businesses -
and to try to give his party a much-needed
boost ahead of November elections that will

Clearly frustrated by the halting econom-
ic recovery and mindful of polls showing
Republicans poised to make big midterm
gains, Obama had his economic advisers
come up with a fresh set of proposals with
Among them: a $50 billion program to
rebuild toads, railways and airports and to
create a new infrastructure bank to oversee
long-term projects. Legislation containing
multiple public works projects has usually
been popular in Congress across party lines.
The administration has not spelled out
exactly how it would pay for all the new
proposals, but suggested it would offset tax
cuts by closing various corporate loopholes
and levying targeted tax hikes on big busi-
ness, particularly on the oil and gas indus-
try and on multinational corporations.
Some of these tax proposals were included
in the budget Obama submitted to Congress
earlier this year but were never acted on by
Rep. Dave Camp of Michigan, the senior
Republican on the tax-writing House Ways
and Means Committee, called Obama's
business tax measures serious proposals

The proposed tax break for research and
development has been around in one form
or another since 1981 and in the past has
drawn bipartisan support. However,
Congress previously extended it just for
short periods of time, usually just for one or
two years, with frequent lapses that make it
hard for businesses to plan. The credit most
recently lapsed in 2009.
Obama has long advocated making the
His proposal to let companies quickly
write off 100 percent of their investments in
new plants and equipment is similar to pro-
posals advanced several times by President
George W. Bush - with considerable GOP
support at the time.
The idea is to give companies an incen-
tive to 'spend and invest now, rather than
later. The administration claims the change
would put nearly $200 billion in the hands
of businesses over the next two years.
Under the current law, a company gets to
deduct 50 percent of the costs upfront, and
the remainder over three to 20 years,
depending on the nature of the investment.
"This measure would provide tax incen-
tives for businesses to invest in the United
States when our economy needs it most,"
says a White House' fact, sheet.
A senior administration official said the.
expensing provision would potentially ben-
efit 1.5 million corporations and several
million individuals. The tax break would be
retroactive to this Wednesday.
Obama's expensing and R&D tax credit
proposals would generally help large busi-
nesses the most. A separate bill is before
the Senate to give special tax breaks and
loan incentives to small businesses. Obama
has said that legislation should be
Congress' first order of business when it
returns next week from its summer recess.
Chris Edwards, director of tax policy for
the libertarian-leaning Cato Institute, said
he favors both a permanent research tax
credit and Obama's proposal for 100 per-
cent expensing, calling both "very positive"
steps and a sign that the administration is
getting seriously worried about the econo-
Still, he added, "the administration would
nullify the benefits if they are matched by
various tax proposals for businesses."
Thomas Mann, a political scientist at the
Brookings Institution, said Obama's three
proposals - infrastructure spending, a per-
manent R&D credit and upfront 100 per-
cent business write-offs - "constitute a re-
entry into the make-the-economy-grow
"All of them had support among conser-
vatives and right-of-center economists for
many years. That makes it more awkward
for the Republicans just to say'no," Mann
said. But that isn't stopping them, he added.
The Obama proposals would require con-
gressional approval, which is highly uncer-
tain given Washington's partisan atmos-
phere and the fast-approaching midterms.
"We understand what season we've
entered in Washington," said White House
spokesman Robert Gibbs. Still, he said,
even if Congress doesn't take up Obama's
new proposals before the elections, "the

"Obamacare will have
dire consequences for our
nation," Rep. Steve King;
R-Iowa, warned in a video
on the site. "President
Obama dismantled the
finest medical system in
the world and replaced it
with a failed socialist
model. The president
nationalized your skin and
everything inside it, and he
enlarged the scope of the
IRS by granting the agency
the power to confiscate the
assets of American who
refuse to submit to the
nanny state." ',
Nothing of the sort, say
health care law backers.
The law's requirement that
most Americans carry
insurance comes from a
Republican proposal in the
1990s health care debate.
Congress rejected a
option for all Americans
that was the top priority for
the political left. Most
Americans will still have
private insurance ten years

- Would Republicans

Microbes are eating BP oil
without using up oxygen
BY SETH BORENSTEIN
AP SCIENCE WRITER
WASHINGTON - Government scien-
tists studying the BP disaster are reporting
the best possible outcome: Microbes are
consuming the oil in the Gulf without
depleting the oxygen in the water and creat-
ing "dead zones" where fish cannot survive.
Outside scientists said this so far vindi-
cates the difficult and much-debated deci-
sion by BP and the government to use mas-
sive amounts of chemical dispersants deep
underwater to break up the oil before it
reached the surface.
Oxygen levels in some places where the
BP oil spilled are down by 20 percent, but
that is not nearly low enough to create dead
zones, according to the 95-page report
In an unusual move, BP released 771,000
gallons of chemical dispersant about a mile
deep, right at the spewing wellhead instead
of on the surface, to break down the oil into
The idea was to make it easier for oil-eat-
ing microbes to do their job. But the risk
was that the microbes would use up the
oxygen in the water. So BP had to perform
a delicate balancing act.

Flight attendant in passenger tiff to be evaluated OBITUARIES

NEW YORK - The flight attendant accused
of onboard antics that captured the nation's
attention when he told off a passenger and slid
down the plane's emergency chute with a beer
will undergo a mental health evaluation with
the aim of avoiding jail time in a possible plea
Steven Slater, dressed in a trim blue suit,
appeared in a Queens courtroom for a brief
hearing on charges of criminal mischief, reck-
less endangerment and trespassing after last
month's meltdown aboard a JetBlue Airways
Corp. flight from Pittsburgh that had just land-
ed at Kennedy International Airport.
He was working Aug. 9 when, he said, an
argument took place with a rude passenger.
After. landing at JFK, he went on the public
address system, swore at a passenger who he
claimed had treated him rudely, grabbed a beer
and exited via an emergency chute, prosecutors
Attorneys on both sides said a deal was being
discussed. Slater will be evaluated and may
qualify for an alternative sentencing program,
which means he could face community service
and counseling instead of jail.
Queens District Attorney Richard A. Brown
said Slater's willingness to be evaluated shows
he's taking the charges more seriously than he
had in the past. 'Slater, had spoken out after the
incident, as his public opinion swelled and hun-
dreds of thousands of fans online cheered him

The district attorney, speaking to reporters
after the hearing, said it would behoove the
public to take the Aug. 9 incident more serious-
ly, noting the slide cost $25,000 to repair and
the plane, had to be taken out of service after-
ward, causing passenger delays.
"It's no laughing matter,".he said.
Slater's attorney, Daniel J. Horwitz, said his
client was taking the matter very seriously and
said he had been under tremendous pressure
because of his terminally ill mother, recently
deceased father, and health problems of his
own, adding that his client is HIV -positive. He
said he was hoping prosecutors would take into
account Slater's "long-standing and well-
regarded reputation in the industry."
Horwitz said he hopes they can come to an
agreement that favorably resolves the case, but
he wouldn't specify what he was looking for..
Brown said if Slater is admitted for alternative
sentencing, he could undergo a treatment pro-
gram lasting weeks, but he said it depended on
the outcome of the evaluation and he's not rul-
ing out the possibility of jail time yet.
Slater, his head held high, left the court with-
out speaking to the,swell of reporters surround-
ing him. His publicist and attorney said he's in
good spirits and has spent the past few weeks in
California with his ailing mother.
Slater resigned from JetBlue last week after
about three years there; JetBlue said only that
he was no longer an employee. Slater has spent
nearly 20 years in the airline industry, but it's
not clear what he's going to do now.
"Right now we want to get past the criminal
issues. Then we'll worry about the future," pub-
licist Howard Bragman said. "Obviously he
will be unemployed until all this is resolved."
JetBlue suspended Slater after the incident. It

- Iris Cross, BP Community Outreach
No oil has flowed into the Gulf for weeks. But we know this is just the
beginning of our work. BP has taken full responsibility for the cleanup
in the Gulf and that includes keeping you informed.
'Restoring Gulf Communities
We can't undo this tragedy. But we can help people get back on their feet.
We have been working with impacted communities since day one.
Partnering with local governments and community organizations, my job is
to listen to people's needs and frustrations and find ways to help. We have
19 community centers and teams in four states, listening and helping.
Restoring The Economy
BP is here in Gulf communities with shrimpers, fishermen, hotel and
restaurant owners, helping to make them whole.
More than 120,000 claim payments totaling over $375 million have
already gone to people affected by the spill. We have committed a
$20 billion independent fund to pay all legitimate claims, including lost
incomes until people impacted can go back to work. And none of this
will be paid by taxpayers.
BP has also given grants of $87 million to the states to help tourism
recover and bring people back to the.Gulf beaches.
Restoring The Environment
We're going to keep looking for oil and cleaning it up if we find it. Teams
will remain in place for as long as it takes to restore the Gulf Coast.
And we've dedicated $500 million to work with local and national scientific
experts on the impact of the spill and to restore environmental damage.
Thousands of BP employees have their roots in the Gulf. We support
over 10,000 jobs in the region and people here are our neighbors. We
know we haven't always been perfect, but we will be here until the oil
is gone and the people and businesses are back to normal. We will do
everything we can to make this right.

Dowling said his team still could've exe-

"Hopefully, we'll have a chip

"It wasn't like they just completely shut
us down," the coach said. "We moved the
ball, but we shot ourselves in the foot. We
would have a 3rd-and-3, then we'd miss a
block and it would be 4th-and-9. We just
kept putting ourselves in bad situations."
Among the positives for the Pirates was
the play of senior running back Xavier
Eutsay, who followed up an outstanding
performance against Graceville with 134
yards and a TD against Blountstown.
Dowling said even he was surprised by
what he saw from the speedy back.

middle, school season
BY DUSTIN KENT
FLORIDAN SPORTS EDITOR
After getting a taste of live
action in a pair of highly com-
petitive jamborees, the
Graceville Tigers and Grand
Ridge Indians will do it for real
Both teams make their regu-
lar season middle school foot-
ball debut Thursday, when they
face each other in Sneads.
Grand Ridge, which won last
year's matchup with the Tigers
in Graceville, played its jam-
boree in Blountstown against
Port St. Joe and Blountstown on
Sept. 2, falling by a combined
score of 14-0.
Graceville played Roulhac in
Vernon and came away with a
scoreless tie in one half of play.
While neither team scored a
point, each came away with dif-
ferent takes from their games.
"The main thing is we have to
try to score," Grand Ridge
coach Ken Granger said. "I
know that's.everyone's goal, but
it was disappointing to go score-
less in the jamboree. We have to
try to get our offense moving,
make sure everybody is on the
same page, and hopefully come
out with a win."
For Graceville, a tie with a
traditionally strong Roulhac
team, after the Tigers were win-
"It's all about
momentum in the
season. As long as we
can start off with a
win, the guys will
have high hopes for
the rest of the
Grand Ridge coach

as a victory.
"I think that showed them, that
there's a possibility of winning
some games this year if they
work hard and do what we tell
them to do," first-year
Graceville coach Thomas
Register said of his players. "I
think they were a little nervous
at the start, but then they calmed
down and realized they could
play with them, and we went
out there and were able to play
The biggest task for the Tiger
coaching staff, according to
Register, has been making sure
the team puts its jamboree effort

No. 18 Penn State preparing for a much stiffer test in top-ranked Tide
BY GENARO C. ARMAS
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
STATE COLLEGE, Pa. - No
early indecision this week in
Happy Valley - true freshman
Rob Bolden has earned another
start -at quarterback for Penn
But his next opponent will be
much more difficult than over-
matched Youngstown State at
Beaver Stadium. A trip Saturday
to top-ranked Alabama awaits the
. No. 18 Nittany Lions.
"It's going to be the exact
opposite of what this is like,"
right guard Stefen Wisniewski
said Tuesday at Beaver Stadium.
"At Alabama, those 100,000 fans,
they're not going to be for us,
they're going to be against us. It's
going to be a completely different
This time, the offense has a full
week knowing who will call the
plays in the huddle.
Bolden proved himself after
throwing for 239 yards and two
touchdowns against the Penguins
in the first start in a season open-
er for a true freshman quarter-
back in Joe Paterno's 45 years on
The choice was so hard on the
coaching staff it didn't announce
a starter until midweek, with the
18-year-old Bolden beating out
two returning sophomores. There
wasn't any ambiguity this time
* on the depth chart.
"It's not going to be easy for
him, but he's not going to lose his
poise," said Patemo, who was in
his 26th year as head coach when
Bolden was born in 1992.
"Hopefully, we'll put him in a
position where he can at least
have some success."
But that's one of the main con-
cerns for Paterno - trying to fig-
ure out how to beat the defending
national champions on the road.
The Nittany Lions don't think
Alabama will slow down on
offense even if Heisman Trophy-
winning tailback Mark Ingram
has to sit out another game
because of a left knee injury.
They consider backup Trent
Richardson just as dangerous.
Top Tide defensive end
Marcell Dareus will definitely sit
out as part of a two-game NCAA
suspension for improper agent
benefits, though Paterno isn't
buying that Alabama's defense
will be weaker without him.
"He's one heck of a football
player. Now do they have one as
good behind him? I don't know,"
Patemo said. "They got a lot of
people. They all know where the
ball is, they all tackle, they all
It sounds a lot like the other
Alabama defenses Penn State
used to face back in the late
1970s and 1980s, when a
Crimson Tide-Nittany Lions
showdown was an annual mar-
quee matchup. The schools last
met in 1990, a 9-0 win for Penn
State at Tuscaloosa that gave the
Nittany Lions an 8-5 series edge.
The 1979 Sugar Bowl might
have been the most memorable
game, when a goal-line stand
helped the Tide win the national
championship. It was one of four
victories for famed Alabama
coach Bear Bryant over Penn
State - though Paterno brushed
aside Tuesday any questions that
sought to compare him to Bryant.
"I think it's two football teams
playing and I don't think they
really care that (someone) named
Paterno coaches one team, and a
Penn State quarterback Robert Bolden, right, celebrates with team-
mate Nate Stupar (34) and assistant coach Mike McQueary, cen-
ter, after throwing the first touchdown pass of his Penn State career

Saturday. - Gene J. Puskar/Associated Press
guy named Bryant used to coach
their team," said Paterno, major
college football's career coaching
leader with 395 wins.
The Nittany Lions will likely
need a much more productive
day out of star tailback Evan
Royster, who ran for 40 yards on
11 carries against the Penguins as
Penn State played rather conserv-

atively. The offensive line
that protected Bolden well
didn't get much push early
on up front.
Alabama debuted seven
new starters on defense last
week, though Paterno said
he's concerned about the
youth or inexperience on
his own team. There are
new starters at left tackle
(Quinn Barham), center
(Doug Klopacz) and tight
end (freshman Garry
Gilliam). Penn State also
alternated two players at
left guard, and has returning
starters Wisniewski and
right tackle Lou Eliades in
new positions this season.
Perhaps most important-
ly, true freshman Bolden is

before 100,000 fans with a

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
NEW YORK - Yahoo!
Sports reported Tuesday
that 2005 Heisman Trophy
winner Reggie Bush is
expected to be stripped of
the award by the end of
The former Southern
Cal running back would
become the first player in
the 75-year history of the
award to have the
Heisman Trophy taken
away. The report also said
the award would be left
vacant for '05.
The NCAA found major
violations in USC's foot-
ball program and levied
serious sanctions against
the school in June.
"I can tell you the-
Heisman Trophy trust has
made no decision regard-
ing the Reggie Bush situa-
tion," Robert Whalen,
executive director of the
Heisman Trophy Trust,
told The Associated Press
The website cited two
anonymous sources close
to the Heisman Trophy
Trust, who say the group's
investigation is almost
complete and would agree
with the NCAA's finding
that Bush was ineligible
during the '05 season.
Bush amassed 2,890
total yards in the 2005
season, winning the
Heisman Trophy with 784
Former Texas quarter-
back Vince Young was
second in the voting with
79 first-place votes.
-Bush now plays for the
Super Bowl champion
New Orleans Saints, who
said Tuesday that they
would have no comment
on the report.
Typically, the Saints
have declined comment on
Bush's NCAA violations
because they have no
bearing on his pro career.
Team headquarters also
were closed to reporters
Bush's Los Angeles-
based attorney, Shawn
Chapman Holley, did not
immediately respond to a
request for comment from

However, Dowling said Rogers
practiced Monday and would be
available on Friday.
The Pirates' opponent should
be equally as anxious to take the
field again after a lopsided loss in
Baker fell to 4A Crestview 49-
20 in its opener, a week after beat-
ing Jay in a preseason classic.
The Gators were winless in
2009, with the Pirates beating
them 15-8 in Sneads.
Dowling said Baker returns
most of its starters from last sea-
son, and will present a balanced
and aggressive offensive attack to
the Sneads defense.
"It's going to be a big test
because they'll throw it all over
the place," he said. "They're
probably 50-50 run and pass, so
you can't just stack it in there.
You've got to play it pretty much
honest. But you can just tell that
they're more comfortable with
their offense than they were last
Dowling said it's an adjustment
playing against a more pass-
happy offense, particularly for his
defensive linemen, who also dou-
ble as offensive linemen on a,
team of just 20 players.
"The biggest thing that scares
me against this kind of offense is
our lack of depth on the defensive
line," he said. "You get running
after a quarterback in the shotgun
and you end up getting tired
quick, especially when you have
to play both sides. Also, trying to
replicate what they do in practice
so our defense gets a good look at
it is hard to do.
"But our big thing this week is
we've got to concentrate on us
getting better. We made some
bonehead mistakes Friday that

its focus on Grand Ridge.
"We talked about it on Monday,
that you've got to put Thursday
behind you because it's over," the
coach said. "It doesn't count in the
records, and no one will remember
it. If that's our best accomplish-
ment of the season, then we're in
"But we came out (Monday) and
the guys were working hard and
paying attention. I think they're
handling it OK."
Granger said he fully expected a
much-improved Graceville team
* from the one he saw last season.
"I expect a real competitive
game. They played Chipley and
held them scoreless, so I know
their defense must be pretty good.
Our main goal is to try to move the
ball on offense so we can put some
points on the board."
Both teams are a part of the
Panhandle Middle School Football
Conference, adding more impor-
tance to Thursday's game. But
regardless of league implications,
Granger said it's important for his
team to start off with a win.
"It's all about momentum in the
season," he said. "As long as we'
can start off with a win, the .guys
will have high hopes for the rest of
the season. If we start off on the
losing end, it could be a downer
for the guys.
"Hopefully, the first game will
give us an idea of, what the season
is going to look like and how suc-
cessful we can be."
Said Register: "Our guys are
really excited, I can tell you that.
All of our guys are really looking
forward to playing a regular sea-
son game again. I think it will be a
real good test for 'us to begin

HP sues ex-CEP over new job at rival Oracle
BY JORDAN ROBERTSON
.AP TECHNOLOGY WRITER
SAN FRANCISCO - Hewlett-Packard
Co. is suing Mark Hurd, the chief execu-
tive it ousted last month, to stop him from
taking a top job at rival Oracle Corp.
The lawsuit, filed Tuesday in a
California state court, came a day after
Oracle hired Hurd as co-president to help
lead the database software maker's efforts
to lure business away from HP. HP claims
that Hurd won't be able to perform his job
at Oracle without spilling HP's trade
secrets and violating a confidentiality
This type of complaint isn't unusual in
the technology world, nor is the confiden-
tiality agreement that Hurd had signed as
part of a severance package from HP that
could top $40 million.
Technology companies often require
such agreements because workers walk
out the door with valuable technical infor-
But the stakes are higher with Hurd than
a rank-and-file employee, and the lawsuit
may delay when Hurd could start his new
The latest lawsuit also underscores the
growing rancor between HP and Oracle.
The companies have cooperated, for 25
years to make sure' that their products
work well together. But that relationship is
straining now that Oracle, like HP, sells
the computer servers that power compa-
nies' back offices. Oracle got into that
business through its $7.4 billion purchase
of Sun Microsystems last year.
Oracle is mostly known for its database
Mark Hurd gestures during a keynote
address at the Oracle Open World con-
ference in San Francisco. Oracle Corp.
has hired former Hewlett-Packard Co.
CEO Mark Hurd to help lead the data-.
base software maker in a pivotal moment
in Oracle's 33-year history as it tries to
muscle in on more of HP's turf

software, which many people use every
day but likely don't know it, such as when
they're pulling money out of a bank or
booking a flight. The software helps com-
panies organize and access their data. It
essentially gives them a map to all their
information, so their computers know
exactly where to find things.
Oracle is the world's No. 1 database
software maker, and with the Sun busi-
ness, Oracle is now among the world's top
seller of servers, as is HP.
As HP's CEO for five years, a stint that
ended after a sexual-harassment investiga-
tion, Hurd was responsible for preparing
HP's strategic plans and has intimate
details about HP's profit margins and spe-
* cial deals it has offered customers, accord-
ing to HP's lawsuit.
HP also insisted that Hurd was privy to
a "highly confidential" analysis of
Oracle's competitiveness against HP.
"Hurd's actions are a serious threat to
HP's business," HP lawyers wrote in the
lawsuit, which was filed in California
Superior Court for Santa Clara County.
Unless stopped, HP said, Hurd would
diminish the value of HP's trade secrets,
hurt customer relationships and "give
Oracle a strategic advantage as to where to
allocate or not allocate resources and
exploit the knowledge of HP's strengths
Hurd declined to comment.
In a statement issued late Tuesday,
Ellison called the lawsuit "vindictive', and
said that HP is acting with "utter disre-'
gard" for the companies' partnership, cus-
tomers, investors and employees. He
raised the possibility that the strife could
damage that relationship.
"The HP board is making it virtually
impossible for Oracle and HP to continue
to cooperate and work together in the IT
marketplace," Ellison said.
An outright breakup between HP and
Oracle seems unlikely, however, because
the companies' technologies are so closely,
These types of cases often end up with a
court ordering disputed executives to stay
away from certain parts of their new
employers' businesses. Hurd's deep
involvement with all aspects of HP's busi-
nesses could complicate his case.
Still, the lawsuit may only delay
Oracle's ability to put Hurd to work.
"In the end, it is likely going to be diffi-
cult for HP to prevail," said Kenneth
Freeman, dean of Boston University's
School of Management.: "It's usually a
very difficult area to enforce."
HP itself was on the other end of this
type of case last year, after it hired David
Donatelli. a veteran of the data-storage
.industry, from EMC Corp. HP was tem-
porarily prohibited from letting Donatelli
start work as an executive vice president
because of a lawsuit by EMC. A court later
ruled that Donatelli could work for HP, but
under certain restrictions that split up
some of his responsibilities.
Hurd resigned from HP last month after
an investigation uncovered inaccurate
expense reports connected with Hurd's
outings with an actress and HP contractor
named Jodie Fisher, who later claimed that
her work helping organize HP events dried
up after she rebuffed Hurd's advances.
. Hurd, 53, who is married with two chil-
dren, denies making any advances on
Fisher. Hurd also insists he didn't prepare
his own expenses and didn't try to conceal
his outings with Fisher, which often
included dinner after the events Fisher
helped organize and that Hurd attended.
Ellison loudly came to Hurd's defense,
after Hurd was forced out of HP last

Police Sgt. John Sheahan
said two males and two:

The two were conscious at

John Lennon killer Chapman
denied parole in New York
BY CAROLYN THOMPSON
ASSOCIATED PRESS WRITER
BUFFALO, N.Y. - John Lennon's killer
was again denied parole in New York, near-
ly 30 years after gunning down the ex-
Beatle outside the musician's New York
City apartment building.
A parole board decided not to release
Mark David Chapman after interviewing
him Tuesday by teleconference 'at Attica
Correctional Facility in upstate New York.
It was Chapman's sixth appearance
before the board since becoming eligible for
parole in 2000. He will be eligible again in
Chapman, 55, had been scheduled to
appear last month, but the hearing was post-
poned by parole officials, who said at the
time they were awaiting additional informa-
tion. They did not elaborate. ,
After Tuesday's decision, the board wrote
to Chapman that it remains concerned about
"the disregard you displayed for the norms
of our society and the sanctity of human life
when, after careful planning, you travelled
to New York for the sole purpose of killing
The panel said "release remains inappro-
priate at this time and incompatible with the
welfare of the community."
Among those who have opposed his
release is Lennon's now 77-year-old widow,
Yoko Ono, who said last month that she
believed Chapman is a potential threat to
her family and perhaps himself.
A call seeking comment from a
spokesman for Ono was not immediately
The former maintenance man from
Hawaii was sentenced to 20 years to life in
prison after firing five shots 'outside
Lennon's Manhattan building on Dec. 8,
1980, hitting Lennon four times in front of
his wife and others. He pleaded guilty to
At his last parole hearing, in 2008,
Chapman told the panel he was ashamed
and sorry for what he had done and had
since developed a deeper understanding of
the value of a human life.
He -said he had been seeking notoriety
and fame to counter feelings of failure.
After that interview, parole officials noted
that Chappan had not been disciplined in
prison since 1994. and said he had adjusted
to his incarceration. But they denied release
"due to concern for the public safety and
welfare," according to the written decision.'
Chapman was informed of the panel's
most recent finding a few hours after the
hearing. The state Division of Parole is
expected to release a transcript of the inter-
view within the next several days.

Many bridge deals have a halfway moment, the trick that

South won'with his spade ace, drew trumps ending in his

for a 3-3 club break? Knowing that the odds favor a finesse,

Skin infections pose risk to Chilean miners
BY PETER PRENGAMAN
ASSOCIATED PRESS WRITER
SAN JOSE MINE, Chile - Rescuers
have sent down antibiotics and ointments
and were working Tuesday to blast cool,
dry air to 33 miners trapped a half-mile
underground for more than a month.
All the men have suffered from skin
sores, foot fungi or abrasions, and infec-
tions could prove dangerous in the swelter-
ing heat and humidity, with rescue at least
six weeks away.
Scrapes, cuts and infections like athlete's
foot and jock itch are usually just minor
annoyances. But trapped as they are in
unrelenting 86-degree (30-degree Celsius)
heat, with humidity at 88 percent, the min-
ers don't have any way of drying out.
In videos transmitted from down below,
the miners can be seen shirtless and sweat-
In such an environment, any open wound
presents a serious risk, so the miners have
been instructed to use extreme caution. A
simple cut from moving rocks could lead to
dangerous infections, Chilean Health
Minister Jaime Manalich told the
Most at risk are diabetics, who face
increased complications from skin infec-
tions under the best circumstances. There
is at least one diabetic among the trapped
miners, who has been receiving insulin
through the narrow bore holes that have
become a lifeline for the miners.
The constant exposure to moisture cre-
ates the possibility of infections, especially
when the men are living and sleeping
together in close quarters and can't shower,
according to Dr. Boni Elewski, a dermatol-
ogy professor at the University of
The exposed skin on the .feet as well as
areas where sweat accumulates, such as

infected with bacteria.
Limited hygiene and constant humidity
"also makes the miners susceptible to an
infection and inflammation of hair follicles
that causes itchiness.
And then there is gas gangrene, an infec-
tion that can start when bacteria common-
ly found in the soil enters a wound. This
bacteria thrives in low-oxygen environ-
ments and rapidly kills tissue, making
immediate removal of the affected area or
amputation of a limb necessary, said
"The longer they. are there in this situa-
tion, the higher the risk that someone will
develop a serious skin problem," she said.
It's unclear how long the miners will be
stuck underground. The Chilean govern-
ment has said it could take until December.
to drill a hole big enough to pull them out,
while other experts have said it could(be as
soon as late October.
Two massive mining drills are being
used - one widening one of the existing
bore holes and the other forging a new
opening - and the government plans to,
use a third drill to widen one of the other
Rescuers have become increasingly
sophisticated in their use of three narrow
bore holes, each less than 6 inches (15 cen-
timeters) wide. ' '/
But attempts last week to cool the min-
ers' cramped environment with a narrow
air hose failed, Manalich said. On
Tuesday, rescuers were working to send'
dowt a. better hose with a compressor
that can pump about eight gallons (30
liters) of dry air per minute.
This second hose - which contains sep-
arate ducts that can also carry water and
fiber-optic cables - will emerge about 60
feet (20 meters) from the shelter where the
men have taken refuge, and it remains to be
seen how much impact it will have on the
overall area where the miners are stuck.
The lower reaches of the mine stretch more
than a mile (two kilometers) below where
the main shaft collapsed on Aug. 5.
The installation is being phased in over
the next couple days, and the air hose
should be working by Thursday, Manalich
said. He expressed hope that enough fresh
air will make it down so that the miners
"feel a difference."
On Tuesday, another fiber-optic cable
brought some relief to the miners, enabling
them to watch a live broadcast of the
Chilean national soccer team playing
Ukraine. A miniature projector snaked
down a bore hole displayed the game on an
underground wall, creating an image 50-
Meanwhile, the first huge drill carving
an escape tunnel through' solid rock
reached a depth of about 370 feet (123
.meters). Already, the miners below can
hear the drilling, though the hole is only
inches wide and will have to be enlarged
before it can be used to pull the men out -
a process that will take weeks or more.
The first tunnel is going slowly, because
each time a geological fault is exposed,
groundwater is released and the walls need
to be shored up with concrete.
A second drill, capable of carving a tun-
nel just wide enough to pull a grown man
through, started work Sunday and can
advance more quickly. But it has experi-
enced technical delays and has only pene-
trated some 75 feet (26 meters).
A third machine, designed for oil explo-
ration, is on its way. That drill has the high-
est velocity, and is capable of reaching the
miners in early November, but could pose
greater risks of rock falls in the unstable

PESHAWAR, Pakistan - A car
bomb ripped through a police com-
pound in a northwestern Pakistani city
on Tuesday, killing 14 women and
children and three officers, the latest in
a string of attacks proving that Islamist
militants remain a potent force in the
country. The dead were the wives and
children of police officers, said Khalid
Omarzai, the city's top government
official. Another 94 people were
wounded, he said, adding that they had
been taken to hospitals after rescuers
cleared rubble. The complex in the gar-

Report says Castro
ASSOCIATED PRESS WRITER
HAVANA - Fidel Castro criticized Iranian
President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad for what he called
his anti-Semitic attitudes and. questioned his own
actions during the Cuban Missile Crisis of 1962 dur-
ing interviews with an American journalist he sum-
moned to Havana to discuss fears of global nuclear
Jeffrey Goldberg, a national correspondent for The
Atlantic, blogged on the magazine's website,
Tuesday that he was on vacation last month when the
head of the Cuban Interests Section, in Washington
-- which Cuba maintains there instead of an
embassy - called to say Castro had read his recent
article about Israel and Iran and wanted him to come
to Cuba. .
Goldberg asked Julia Sweig, a Cuba-U.S. policy
expert at the Council on Foreign Relations, to
accompany him; arid the pair spent portions of three
days talking with Castro.
Cuba's state-controlled media reported Aug. 31.

the blog was the first toxreveal details of what they
Goldberg said their first meetinglasted five hours
and featured appearances by Castro's wife, Dalia, his
son Antonio, and several bodyguards, two of which
held his elbow to steady Castro when he moved. ,
"His body may be frail, but his mind is acute, his
energy level is high," wrote Goldberg, who also
noted Castro's self-deprecating humor.
The 84-year-old ex-president wore full military
fatigues and an olive-green cap while addressing
university students last week, ;and had "previously
appeared in public in a military shirt. But Goldberg
saw Castro in a red shirt, sweat pants, and black New
He said Castro, who himself has been a fierce crit-
ic of Israel, "repeatedly returned to his excoriation of
anti-Semitism," chiding Ahmadinejad for denying
the Holocaust. Castro said that Iran could further the
cause of peace by "acknowledging the 'unique' his-
tory of anti-Semitism and trying to understand why
Israelis fear for their existence."
The gray-bearded revolutionary related to
Goldberg a story from his childhood that has been
detailed by some biographers: that he overheard
classmates saying Jews killed Jesus Christ.
"I didn't know what a Jew was. I knew of a bird
that was a called a 'Jew,' and so for me the Jews
were those birds," Goldberg quoted Castro as telling
him. Castro later added, "This is how ignorant the
entire population was."
According to Goldberg, Castro said, "I don't think
anyone has been slandered more than the Jews. I
would say much more than the Muslims."
Castro also said that the Iranian government
should understand that the Jews "were expelled from
their land, persecuted and mistreated all over the
world, as the ones who killed God."
After undergoing emergency intestinal surgery in
July 2006, giving up Cuba's presidency and drop-
ping out of sight for four years, Castro has begun
making near-daily public appearances to warn of a
nuclear war pitting the U.S. and Israel against Iran
and also featuring a Washington-led attack on North
"This problem is not going to get resolved,
because the Iranians are not going to back down in
the face of threats," Castro told Goldberg.
Goldberg also said he revisited the Cuban Missile
Crisis with Castro, asking if 'once "it seemed logical
for you to recommend that the Soviets bomb the U.S."
"Does what you recommended still seem logical
Castro's answer surprised him: "After I've seen
what I've seen, and knowing what I know now, it
wasn't worth it all."
