The five-year work plan on
building maintenance and con-
struction was presented to the
Jackson County School Board at
a special meeting Monday.
The plan sets a tentative sched-
ule for construction in the district.
The plan is updated yearly,
according to Stuart Wiggins, the
district's director of facilities and
Each year the office must
assess the needs within the dis-
trict and prioritize them based on
wants versus needs, Wiggins
There are projects on the top of
the list for the district and they
are reflected in the work plan, he
The district borrowed just over
$5 million for its HVAC project.
The plan is to spend about $1 mil-
lion a year to pay back this debt,
Wiggins said.
The high-priority' projects
focus on continuing to make
schools more environmentally
friendly. This includes changing
lighting, windows and adding
insulation to make buildings,
more efficient.
The district plans to spend
about $1 million in 2011-2012 to
update lighting and windows dis-
The expansion and renovation
of school cafeterias are also a pri-
ority. The cafeteria is one part of
a school that affects all students,
Wiggins said.
The plan budgets for renova-
tions of one food service facility
per year. But Wiggins said there
might be two renovations per
year if the budget allows.
Paving and carpeting at the
facilities are constantly main-
tained to keep them from falling
into disrepair. Several paving
projects are in the work plan for
the next five years.
There are three items that are
not funded yet, but are included
in the plan as possible projects if

Library sets overdue fees


The Jackson County
Commission Tuesday
approved . minimal
fees for overdue
library books and
other materials
The fees were set at
10 cents per day, per
book, with a maxi-
mum of $1 per book.
Each person with a
library card is allowed

For more on the
new library fees, go

to check out up to seven books at a time.
The limit used to be 25 books. Over a peri-
od of years, the number of overdue books has
reached an alarming figure in the absence of
overdue fines.
According to Jackson County Library
Director Alan Barber, 12,000 items are now
checked out of the 90,000-item library inven-
tory. Of those, 10,000 are overdue. Of those
that are overdue, 8,000 have been overdue for
more than a year.

Commission examines leave policies

Since the federal Family
Medical Leave Act came into

only arisen twice in
county government.

Commissioners on
Tuesday directed her
to sit down with County Attorney
Frank Baker and come up with
some ideas.
She was also asked to research
how other counties deal with the
issues she raised, and to come
back to the commission with her
. The federal legislation requires
employers to give employees at
least 12 weeks of family medical
leave if they meet the guidelines.
Caring for a sick loved one, or

Portion of SR County OKs new cameras for courts

A portion of State Road 77
near Graceville will be closed for
two weeks. Motorists will have to
use a detour.
Beginning Thursday, State
Road 77 between 12th and Spears
avenues will be closed to allow
for drainage work, according to a
press release from the Florida
Department of Transportation.
The detour route is using Cliff
Street, Fourth Street, State Road
77, State Road 2 and Sanders
Avenue. The detour route is clear-
ly marked, according to the
The closure is part of a $1 mil-
lion project to resurface State
Road 77 between Brown Street
and the northern city limits in
Graceville, the release stated.
The project includes sidewalks,
drainage improvements, safety
improvements, traffic signals,
signage and pavement markings.
Jones Construction of
Northwest Florida is contracted
to do the work and has about five
months to complete the project,
according to the release.
"Motorists are reminded to use
caution while traveling through
the construction zone, speeding
violations double when workers
are present," the release stated.

The Jackson County Commission on
Tuesday approved the release of funds to pur-
chase new video-conferencing cameras for
the court system.
The $9,117 will be used to replace two
aging cameras which allow visual and audio
communication between the courthouse and
jail in real time.
This allows the accused to.make their first
court appearance from jail, rather than being
transported to the courthouse for the proceed-
The court administration had initially want-
ed to buy two units at $8,000 each, but even-
tually found less expensive models that cut
the price nearly in half.
The county had set aside money for the
purchases during their budget deliberations
earlier this year, but declined to turn the
money over automatically to the court sys-
Commissioners said they didn't want to
authorize the purchases right away, since the
old equipment was still working.
But Senior Court Program Specialist
Amber Baggett appeared before the commis-
sion Tuesday to request the funds be released
as soon as possible.
Even though the cameras have not broken
down, they're aging and in danger of failure.
The warranties have been renewed on the
current equipment several times, she said, but
are no longer available for renewal because of
the age of the cameras.
If they were to malfunction without new
units in place, Baggett said inmates would
have to be transported for their first appear-
That would mean more costs and greater

security risks, she pointed out.
Without working equipment, weekends
present more problems, she said.
New court rules make it necessary for
judges, state attorneys and defense attorneys
to be available seven days a week to handle
first appearances. To comply with this rule
without overburdening court officials, the
judges and other officials rotate the weekend
duty. Since the judge on call might be in Gulf

County and may have to hear a Jackson
County case, the first appearance by video
conference makes it possible to avoid the
transport of inmates or travel time for the offi-
cials on call.
Commissioners approved the release of
funds unanimously.

You know times are hard when the
business community can't afford the
insurance premiums on its headquar-
It's a shame, because the Russ
House is a unique bit of turn-of-the-
century architecture, and is easily one
of the most distinctive buildings in the
As was reported in this newspaper,
the Jackson County Chamber of
Commerce is asking the county to
assist - in fact, the chamber will
most likely ask the county to take
ownership of the building and lease it
back to the chamber. '
Such lease-back arrangements are
not unusual; businesses often use
them to reduce their expenditures
when times are hard. Often, the lease
payments are less than a mortgage.
And because the building is. now
owned by someone else, maintenance
costs - like insurance - are no
longer a factor.
The question now is whether the
county, which has budget problems of
its own, can afford to buy the build-
ing. It may be that the chamber buys
the Russ House for a small, token
amount, and then leases it to the
chamber at a peppercorn rental fee.
But then there is the question of
maintenance. The county would be
responsible not just for the insurance
premiums, but for landscaping,
plumbing, roofing and any other
upkeep the building would require.
. We hope some sort of solution can
be found. The Russ House is worthy
of continued preservation and use. But
we ask the county commission and the
chamber to consider the burden that
would be placed on the taxpayers if
the county were to agree to take own-
Whatever solution is agreed upon, it.
needs to be one that minimizes the

Congress must save stem cell research

The 111th Congress has a
lot to do before it gives way
to the 112th nextyear, but
one thing it certainly should
do is make clear where it
stands on embryonic stem
cell research.
Even though Congress has
funded the research to the
tune of $546 million over the
past nine years, a federal
judge has stopped it cold,
throwing a promising field of
medical science into chaos.
Federal Judge Royce C.
Lamberth decreed last month,
notwithstanding all those
appropriations, that Congress
was "unambiguous" when it
passed legislation in 1996
banning "research in which
human embryos are
.Not only that, he imposed
an immediate injunction on
federally funded research and,
this week, kept it in force
despite pleas from researchers
that his ruling would cause
"tremendous, immediate,
irreparable harm" to their
work and to its "millions of
potential beneficiaries."
At the moment, stem-cell
scientists are in total confu-
sion about what the state of
their federal support is -
and whether it will even con-
That's why Congress needs
to act - and soon, - to
make clear that the so-called
Dickey-Wicker amendment
(passed in 1996 before stem
cells were even isolated)
does not apply to the

Landlord apologizes

Dear editor,

hood on Lee Road for what

The man who was allegedly

room did not live there.
Landlords cannot know

their properties until there is
The woman has been evict-
ed and will only be allowed

For years, Senate and
House appropriations com-
mittee reports have declared
- under Congresses and
presidents of both parties -
that Dickey-Wicker's lan-
guage "should not be con-
strued to limit federal sup-
port" for human embryonic
stem-cell research carried out
under presidential guidelines.
Under current guidelines,
federally funded researchers
cannot destroy embryos to
obtain cell lines but can
acquire them from private
entities that do.
Overwhelmingly, the days-
old embryos are "left over,"
frozen and destined for
destruction at in vitro, fertil-
ization clinics.
But Lamberth ruled that
"the language of tfhe statute
reflects the unambiguous
intent of Congress to enact a
broad prohibition of funding,
research in which a human
embryo is destroyed," and
that current research "neces-
sarily depends upon the
destruction of a human
So far, the judge has issued
a formal ruling only to
impose and sustain his
injunction, but he has sig-
naled strongly what his opin-
ion is on the merits of the
federal funding: It's illegal.
. When Lamberth rules, the
Obama administration, uni-
versity medical schools and
scientific groups will appeal,
but it may be months or
years before the issue is
resolved - unless Congress
acts to clarify its intent.
Stem cells are the inner

core of the embryo and are
deemed "pluripotent," mean-
ing that they can be tweaked �
to become almost any kind of

tial cures to a vast range of
As Francis Collins, director
of the National Institutes of,
Health, wrote in a memoran-
dum to the judge, "stem cell
research holds great promise
for the development of treat-
ments for a wide range of
serious and life-threatening
diseases and conditions,"
including cancer, diabetes,
heart disease, spinal cord
injuries and neurodegenera-
tive diseases, including
The Food and Drug
Administration has approved
a clinical trial using embry-
onic stem cells for spinal
injuries, he noted.
Embryonic stem cell
research has been fiercely
opposed by right-to-life
groups including the Roman
Catholic Church and the
Family Research Council,
and presented a moral dilem-
ma to former President
George W. Bush.
He solved it by declaring
that federal research could
proceed on cell lines derived
before August 2001, but not
after. Congress voted to lift
those limits, but Bush vetoed
the bill.
President Barack Obama
issued new guidelines and
expanded the number of cell
lines open to research. But
it's unclear whether
Lamberth's rulings will stop
only Obama-approved

research or Bush-approved
research, too.
The injunction "will result
in immeasurable loss of valu-
able and one-of-a-kind
research resources," Collins
wrote in his memorandum.
"Experiments that may
have been months or years in
development will be halted
prematurely ... Investigators
who have devoted their
careers to this exciting
research may have to close
their laboratories or move to
another country," he added.
The plaintiffs in the case
are two scientists doing .
research on so-called "adult"
stem cells - usually, derived
from skin or blood and
caused to resemble "pluripo-
tent" cells.
They argued that money
spent on embryonic research.
would take funds from
"adult" research, but Collins
noted that NIH devotes near-
ly three times as much fund-
ing to nonembryonic research
as to embryonic. ,
In his latest ruling, the
judge implied that only new
funding should be stopped
and that scientists were over-
reacting to his injunction
with a "parade of horribles."
But dozens of ongoing proj-
ects are due for refunding at
the end the fiscal year, Sept.
So it's up to Congress to
straighten this out. Rep.
Diana DeGette, D-Colo., is
drafting legislation to do so.
But is it possible to get any-
thing done when there's con-
troversy involved? Let's hope

Senator urged to
continue the fight

Dear editor,
Sen. Al Lawson, I am very
disappointed that you are not
fighting the "septic tank" bill
to the end. Although your
term is almost up, you were
elected to represent the people

Having some one like Sen.
Evelyn Lynn continue the

fight is good, but I also would
like to know that you have
not totally given up. Elected
officials, both state and feder-
al, should take the time to

stand the consequences that
come with their passage.

Questions remain
over septic tank law

Dear editor,
I would like to see some
facts published about the sep-
tic tank legislation.
What legislators) spon-

gored the bill? We need to
know names.
Sen. Lawson has stated sev-
eral times that "legislative
leadership" assured him that
the bill contained no marked
changes to the version he had
seen. Who, by name, gave
those assurances?
I think personal accounta-
bility for their actions will go
a long way toward repealing
this law. Every legislator's job
actually includes reading and
understanding what ihe\ sign.
It certainly does not include
misleading or ,ltright lying
to your fellow legislators.

New rules slow Gulf drilling in shallow water


The drilling moratorium enact-
ed after the BP oil spill applies
only to the deepwater Gulf of
Mexico. Yet energy exploration
in the Gulf's shallow waters has
come to a virtual standstill as
drillers grapple with tougher fed-
eral rules since the spill.
The pace. at which regulators
grant drilling permits in water
less than 500 feet deep has
slowed sharply this summer, an
Associated Press analysis of gov-
ernment data shows. Just four out
of 10 shallow-water drilling
applications have been approved
from June through August; 15.
applications were sought and
approved in the same period last
year. .
Environmental groups 'are
encouraged by the trend. But
drilling executives say the new
rules, which require them to pro-
duce detailed spill-response plans
and estimates for worst-case sce-
narios, are adding millions of
dollars in costs and causing
delays that have led to layoffs.
Executives worry that when the
Obama administration lifts, the
six-month moratorium on deep-'
water drilling, where the risks are
greater, the permitting process
will be even slower.
These worries grew. after the
Sept. 2 fire on an oil and gas plat-
form owned by Mariner Energy
that was working in the Gulf's
shallow waters. Thirty-one out of..
47 rigs used for shallow-water
drilling in the Gulf will be out of.
work by the end of September,
industry officials say.
"It certainly appears there's
some kind of agenda in place" to

A natural gas platform is shown off the coast of Fort Morgan, Ala.
America's ban.on offshore drilling was meant only for the deep

have halted numerous projects at safer depths where most of the
industry works. - AP Photo/Rob Carr

punish offshore drillers, says
Kurt Hoffman, chief operating
officer- of Houston-based
Seahawk Drilling, which pro-
vides drilling services in shallow
Gulf waters. The company has
laid off 200 to 300 workers since
the BP spill.
Federal regulators say they're
sympathetic to the industry's
mounting frustrations and that
they're not trying to curtail
drilling in the Gulf - only ,to
make it safer.
"We will not approve applica-
tions until and unless they fully
comply with the 'new require-
ments," Michael Bromwich,
director of the Bureau of pcean
Energy Management, Regulation
and Enforcement, said Monday

in a statement. "That will not
make everyone happy, but it is,
the right way to proceed."
Shallow-water drilling has
been the heart of the offshore
industry for decades. Ninety-
eight percent of the 3,400, plat-
forms operating in the Gulf are in
shallow water. They produce 30
percent of the Gulf's oil and
roughly two-thirds of its natural
gas. In recent years, oil giants
like BP and Royal 'Dutch Shell
have pushed into deeper waters to
find bigger oil and gas fields.
Immediately after the deadly
April 20 explosion of the
-Deepwater Horizon, the govern-
ment put in place a six-month
moratorium on drilling at any
depth. On June 8, it lifted the

moratorium on new shallow-
water drilling.
The AP analysis of govern-
ment data shows that from 2007
until just before the BP spill, 605
shallow-water permits were sub-
mitted and 576 were approved.
From January through April of
this year, 45 permits were sought
and 44 were approved.
While the pace of approvals.
has slowed since the spill, over
time the vast majority of drilling
applications are likely to be
granted - it's just that the
process will take longer, accord-
ing to Melissa Schwartz, a
spokeswoman for the ocean ener-
gy management agency.
The reduction in applications
in recent months is a reflection of
.drillers' uncertainty about the
new rules, industry officials say.
On average, drillers .applied for
20 permits a month in 2007, 18 a
month in 2008 and fewer than
nine a month in 2009, as falling
energy prices curbed the indus-
try's zeal. In the first four months
of 2010, applications were back
up to 11 a month.
Complying with the new rules
hasn't been easy, drillers say.
They must hire independent
experts to review well designs
and certify that spill-prevention
equipment - the very equipment
that failed BP - will stop the
flow of oil if there is an accident.
The government has held
weekly conference calls with oil
industry officials to explain the
new rules. Still, industry officials
say they remain perplexed by
some requirements - like how to
calculate worst-case spill scenar-
ios for an exploratory well.
"We just started asking them,
'Tell us what. you want,'" says
Seahawk's Hoffman.

"It's still really confusing."
For Nabors Industries, drilling
on one of its shallow-water rigs"
was held up for almost two
months this summer even after it
received a permit, spokesman
Dennis Smith says. The company
had to buy new hoses, choke lines
and other equipment, to comply
with new rules. At one point, the
company waited for several days
while the government searched
for a federal inspector that didn't
know anyone on the rig - a pol-
icy enacted after the BP spill.
Before the Gulf spill, it typical-
ly took one week to begin drilling
after a permit had been approved.
"Some of this stuff gets border-
line silly," says Smith, who esti-
mates that the delays and new
requirements to slash about $30
million from company operating
income this year.
Shares of shallow-water
drillers have tumbled sharply
since the BP spill. Seahawk
shares are down 59 percent;
Nabors' shares are off 14 percent.
BP's well took 87 days to plug
in large part because the compa-
ny wasn't prepared for a major
spill at a depth of 5,000 feet. The
company had to rely on remotely
operated deep-sea vehicles to*
plug its. well.
Shallow-water wells are con-
sidered less risky and easier to
repair if damaged because they
can be reached by divers.
But major accidents have hap-
pened in shallow water. The 1979
Ixtoc oil spill - the biggest in
the Gulf until the Deepwater
Horizon. disaster - was caused
by the blowout of a well in just
160 feet of water. Last year's
Montara spill off the western
coast of Australia was caused by
an explosion on a rig in 250 feet.

Lawsuit on'Obama health plan likely going to trial


eral judge said Tuesday he
will likely dismiss only parts
of a lawsuit by 20 states
challenging the Obama
administration's health care
overhaul as unconstitution-
al, though he didn't specifi-
cally say what portions.,
The Obama administra-
tion had asked U.S. District
Judge Roger Vinson to dis-
miss the entire lawsuit. The
states and the administration
disagree over whether peo-
ple should be required to
have health insurance, and
whether states should pay
additional Medicaid costs
not covered by the federal
government. The judge said
he will issue a ruling by Oct.

14. The lawsuit is likely to
wind up before the U'S.
Supreme Court.
If Vinson upholds the
states' challenge, he would
overturn decades of law
enforcing the federal gov-
ernment's power to regulate
interstate commerce; said
Ian Heath Gershengorn,
deputy' assistant attorney
general. .
"This court is free to dis-
agree with Congress' policy
judgments but it is not free
to overturn 75 years of
Constitutional law,' he said.
Administration attorneys
also argued that the section
requiring health insurance
doesn't take effect until
2015 and it's up to an indi-
vidual taxpayer - not the
states - to challenge the
law then.

But David Rivkin, an.
attorney representing the
states, argued the law will
destroy the . state's
Constitutional sovereignty
by burdening them with
uncontrolled Medicaid
costs., The federal govern-
ment is over reaching its
taxing authority by penaliz-
ing people for not taking an
action - not purchasing
health insurance, he said.
"By imposing a mandate
on inactive individuals they
are eviscerating state sover-
eignty," he said.
The judge questioned
whether .the administration
was correct in arguing that
all Americans are active par-
ticipants in the health care
system regardless of
whether they choose to have
health insurance and are

therefore subject to penalties
under the government's
authority to regulate com-
merce. Health insurance is
the mechanism to regulate
the health care market,
Gershengorn said.
"The healthiest individual
can be hit by a bus. He can-
not keep himself out of the
health ' care market,"
Gershengom said:.
But Rivkin likened the
health care law to the. sub-
prime mortgage crisis.
"If this cost shifting is
allowed then it would let the
government demand that
people buy a prescribed
package of mortgages," he
said. Florida's Republican
Attorney General Bill
McCollum filed the lawsuit
just minutesafter President
Barack Obama signed the

10-year, $938 billion health'
care bill into law last March.
He chose a court in
Pensacola, one of Florida's
most conservative cities. A
similar case is unfolding in
There, the Obama admin-
istration also tried to get the
lawsuit dismissed, saying
Virginia lacked standing to
sue, but a federal judge has
allowed it to continue, ruling
that the overhaul raises com-
plex constitutional issues.
The other states that are
suing are Alabama, Alaska,
Arizona, Colorado, Georgia,
Indiana, Idaho, Louisiana,
Michigan, Mississippi,
Nebraska, Nevada, North
Dakota, Pennsylvania,
Soutlv Carolina,. South
Dakota, Texas, Utah and

Crist may drop defense of gay adoption ban


TALLAHASSEE - In a move that
could boost gay couples" rights, Gov.,
Charlie Crist said Tuesday that he'll
consider ending, a legal battle over
same-sex adoptions.
The former Republican's. comment
came a day after his independent U.S.
Senate campaign issued a position
paper supporting several gay rights
issues he'd once opposed, including
adoption rights.
A Miami judge last year declared a
state ban on adoption by gay couples
The state Department of Children
and Families, which is under Crist,
has asked the 3rd District Court of
Appeal, also in Miami, to reverse the
ruling. Regardless of how the appeals
court rules, the case likely will, wind
up in the Florida Supreme Court
unless Crist decides. to drop it.

"I'm going to review it before I
make that call," Crist said.
While gays can serve as foster par-
ents in Florida, it's the only state that
bans them from adopting without
exception, according to the American
Civil Liberties Union.
Echoing his position paper, Crist
said he believes judges should decide
on a case-by-case basis whether an
adoption is in a child's best interest
no matter the adoptive parents' sexu-
al orientation.
Brian Winfield, spokesman for the
gay rights advocacy group Equality
Florida, said it's appropriate for Crist
to consider dropping the appeal .after
releasing the position paper.
"Those decisions should be left to
the people closest to the case,"
Winfield said. "We've been saying
that for years."
Both of Crist's opponents in the
Senate race, Republican Marco
Rubio and Democrat Kendrick Meek,

were quick to point out the governor
has switched positions on the adop-
tion issue and the military's "don't
ask, don't tell" policy, which he once
supported but now wants to repeal.
Crist also supported a state consti-
tutional amendment banning same-
sex marriages Florida voters adopted
in 2008. He hasn't backed of that
position, but now he says he advo-
cates civil unions with the full range
of legal .protections and opposes a
similar federal amendment.
The governor, who now needs to
attract more Democratic and inde-
pendent voters, called his changing
views "an appropriate evolution."
"The older you get the more toler-
ant you become, the less judgmental
you are, and that's called wisdom,"
Crist said. ,
I "Maybe I was more rigid earlier,
but I don't feel that way. And I know
who's supposed to be judging people,
and it's not me."

Oil industry: Nix higher offshore inspection fees


and gas industry says an Obama
administration plan to double
fees charged for inspections of
offshore operations could cost
The industry recognizes the
need for improved inspections
and oversight following the mas-
sive BP oil spill, American
Petroleum Institute president
Jack Gerard said. But doubling
the fees is not appropriate, espe-
cially during a recession, he said.
"This is not the time to go back
and impose additional costs on
industry," Gerard said Tuesday in
a conference call with reporters.
The oil and gas industry con-
tributes billions of dollars to the
U.S. government in royalty pay-
ments, taxes and other fees,
Gerard said, adding that govern-

ment policies should encourage
development of domestic energy
while making sure it is safe.
The White House asked
Congress late Monday to approve
the higher inspection fees as part
of a request for $80 million in
new spending for the agency that
oversees offshore drilling.
The proposal would more than
double the amount collected from
oil and gas companies, to $45
million next year from about $20
million this year.
Obama said in a letter to
Congress that the fee increases
and other changes are needed to
strengthen oversight of offshore
oil and gas operations; address
deficiencies in mineral revenue
collection; and complete the reor-
ganization of the agency former-
ly ,known as the Minerals
Management Service.
The drilling, agency's new
director said Tuesday that he was

not involved in the fee increase
decision, but supports additional
revenue for his organization, now
known as Bureau of Ocean
Energy Management, Regulation
and Enforcement.
"We need the- additional
resources to do the job that we've
been asked to do," said Michael
Bromwich, the drilling agency's
new chief. Under its former
name, the drilling agency was
long plagued by staffing short-
ages and an overly cozy relation-
ship with the industries it over-
Bromwich acknowledged
those problems, but said the
oceati energy bureau is turning a
corner - and needs additional
money to get even better.
"We've been faulted for not
doing the job people expected us
to do, and the central reason for
that is we haven't had adequate
resources. If we don't get the

resources we need we won't be
able to do the job effectively,"
Bromwich said Tuesday in a sep-
arate conference call.
Congress recently approved
$29 million in emergency spend-
ing to hire hundreds of new off-
shore drilling inspectors and take
others steps to improve the
drilling agency. No new inspec-
tors have been hired yet, but
Bromwich said officials were
conducting a "full-court press" to
find and hire qualified inspectors
to bolster the 60.or so inspectors
now responsible for about 3,500
drilling rigs and platforms in the
Gulf of Mexico.
In a related development,
Bromwich said the Interior
Department has hired McKinsey
& Co., a management consulting
firm, to help him reorganize the
drilling agency. Bromwich said
he was not involved in the selec-
tion process - which began

before he took office in June -
and did not know how much the
company was being paid.
Federal records indicate that
McKinsey will be paid $4.4 mil-
lion over the next year for its
analysis and expertise. The com-
pany defeated four other bidders
for the yearlong contract, which
began Aug. 13.
Bromwich also said the
Interior Department is "highly
unlikely" to extend its six-month
moratorium on . deepwater
drilling beyond Nov. 30.
He said he hopes to finish a
report to Interior Secretary Ken
Salazar by the end of September,
a month ahead of a deadline to
make recommendations on the
drilling moratorium and other
issues. It was unclear how soon
Salazar will act after the report is


Tea party favorite leads in New Hampshire


WASHINGTON - Tea party-supported
Ovide Lamontagne seized an early lead in New
Hampshire's Republican senatorial primary
Tuesday night, one of a pair of marquee races in
the finale to a primary season marked by eco-
nomic recession and political upheaval.
Lamontagne was gaining 53 percent of the
vote to 32 percent for former Attorney General
Kelly Ayotte who had the support of party lead-
ers, with ballots counted in 5 percent of the
state's precincts.
The race was one of two in which tea party
insurgents challenged the party establishment.
The other was in Delaware,*where veteran Rep.
Mike Castle vied with Christine O'Donnell in a
Republican Senate nomination race that turned
particularly nasty in the final weeks.
Democratic New Hampshire Gov. John Lynch
rolled to renomination for a fourth term, and he
will face John Stephen, a former state health
commissioner who led overwhelmingly for the
GOP nomination.
In New York, 40-year veteran Democratic
Rep. Charles Rangel faced the voters for the
first time since the House ethics committee
accused him of 13 violations, most of them
relating to his personal finances.
In all, five states chose nominees for the
Senate, and six more had gubernatorial hopefuls
on primary ballots. The winners had scant time
to refocus their energies for midterm elections
coming up on Nov. 2.
So far this year, seven incumbent members of
Congress have tasted defeat, four Republicans
and three Democrats. And that does not include
a lengthy list of GOP contenders who fell to tea
party-supported challengers despite having the
backing of party officials eager to maximize
their gains in November.
Withl unemployment high and President
Barack Obama's popularity below 50 percent,
Republicans said the primaries reflected an
enthusiasm that would serve the party well in
the fall, when control of Congress will be at
Democrats, however, said the presence of tea
party-supported Republicans would prove cost-
ly to the GOP on Nov. 2 - a proposition that
remained to be tested in seven weeks' time.
In Delaware, Castle and O'Donnell sought the
GOP nomination for a Senate seat held for 36
years by Vice President Joe Biden. The race
turned took a sharp turn for the negative three
weeks ago after the Tea Party Express
announced it would come to the aid of chal-
lenger Christine O'Donnell.
Castle, a former two-term governor and a vet-
eran of nearly two decades in the House, was
repeatedly assailed as a liberal, a Republican in
name only. He and the party responded by chal-
lenging O'Donnell's fitness for public office and
her ability to win a statewide election in the fall.
In an extraordinary move, the state
Republican Party began automated phone calls
attacking O'Donnell in the campaign's final
hours. The calls feature the voice of a woman
who identifies herself as Kristin Murray,
O'Donnell's campaignn manager in her 2008
unsuccessful Senate campaign, accusing the
candidate of "living on campaign-donations -
using them for rent and personal expenses,
while leaving her workers unpaid and piling up
thousands in debt."
O'Donnell's campaign did not immediately
respond to a request for comment.

. Republican officials have said privately they
intend to write off the seat if O'Donnell is vic-
torious against Castle. ,
While Republicans brawled, New Castle
County Executive Chris Coons coasted to the
Democratic nomination without opposition.
Biden resigned the seat in early 2009, and his
successor, Democratic Sen. Ted Kaufman,
pledged not to run for a full term.
Republicans in New Hampshire sorted
through a crowded field of candidates for the
nomination to a seat long held by retiring GOP
Sen. Judd Gregg.
Ayotte was the party-backed favorite, and she
added support from prominent conservatives
who have played a heavy role in several primar-
ies this year, including former Alaska Gov.
Sarah Palin.
Her principal opposition came from
Lamontagne, a lawyer and former head of the
state board of education. He campaigned with
the support of tea party activists and claimed to
be the most conservative candidate in a race that
also included businessmen Bill Binnie and Jim
The winner will face Democratic Rep. Paul
Hodes, who is giving up his seat in the House to
run for the Senate.
Republicans must gain 10 seats this fall if they
are to win control of the Senate, and their
chances count heavily on their ability to prevail
in both Delaware and New Hampshire.
In Wisconsin, businessman Ron Johnson
faced two minor opponents for the Republican
nomination to oppose three-term Democratic
Sen. Russ Feingold in November in what polls
show is a tight race. Johnson has said he will,
spend millions of his own money to finance his
campaign through Election Day.
In New York, Democratic Attorney General
Andrew Cuomo faced no opposition for the
party's nomination for governor, and he will be
the prohibitive favorite in the fall for an office

novice Carl Paladino, a wealthy developer who

got tea party support, for the Republican nomi-
The state's new electronic, voting machines
made their debut, and there were scattered
reports of problems that resulted in delays and
long lines.
In Maryland, former Republican Gov. Bob
Ehrlich sought the nomination for a rematch
against the man who ousted him from office in
2006, Democratic Gov. Martin O'Malley.
There were gubernatorial nomination contests
in Rhode Island, New Hampshire,
Massachusetts and � Wisconsin, where
Milwaukee.County Executive Scott Walker col-
lided with former Rep. Mark Neumann for the

Mayor Tom Barrett was heavily favored for the
Democratic nomination.
Rangel's principal challenger for the nomina-
tion in his Harlem-based district was Adam
Clayton Powell IV, a state assemblyman whose
father Rangel defeated 40 yeats ago. In the
decades since, Rangel rose to become chairman
of the House Ways and Means Committee, with
enormous power over taxes, trade, Medicare and
more, but Democrats forced him to step aside
from that panel while he battles ethics charges.
He is accused of accepting several New York
City rent-stabilized apartments, and omitting
information on his financial disclosure forms.
He's also accused of failing to pay taxes from a
rental property in the Dominican Republic, and
improperly soliciting money for a college center
to be named after him.

Small business credit measure clears Senate hurdle


WASHINGTON - In a win for
President Barack Obama and his
political allies, Senate Democrats on
Tuesday won a crucial vote to clear
the way for a bill to create a $30 bil-
lion government fund to help open up
lending for credit-starved small busi-
nesses. Democrats cracked a GOP
filibuster of the bill with the help of


deserved an extension, or how
much of an extension to grant.
Loman-Greene said Tuesday she
thinks the county would be wise to
set a limit on possible extensions.
"I don't disagree with the extra
leave," she said. "We have people
who have illness that keeps them
out more than 12 weeks, and
they've been really good employ-
ees that we wouldn't want to cut
out of that."
At the same, time, she said,
T keeping the leave open-ended
could create situations in which

two Republicans: Sens. George
Voinovich of Ohio and George
LeMieux of Florida.
The 61-37 tally sets the stage for a
final vote later this week to return the
measure to the House, which is like-
ly to approve it for Obama's signa-
ture. The bill is probably the last
piece of Democrats' ambitious jobs
agenda that would become law
before midterm elections, which will
determine whether Democrats keep

employees could ask for extremely
long extensions. That could create
manpower shortage issues for the
county if it became a regular prac-
Granting extreme extensions in
one case and not another, she also
predicted, could create legal issues
for the county.
The county's policy so far has
been to leave the extension deci-
sion up to County Administrator
Ted Lakey.
Loman-Greene thinks the com-
mission needs something more

their majorities in the House and
Senate. Democrats started the year
with ambitious plans for a series of
bills designed to boost the economy
and job creation but have relatively
little to show for it. The nationwide
unemployment rate ticked up to 9.6
percent last month.
Obama welcomed the vote.
'This is a bill that would cut taxes
and help provide loans to millions of
small business owners who create

definite on paper.
More that two employees have
used the leave policy, but only two
have used the full 12 weeks.
Under county policy, employees
who use the unpaid, federally man-
dated leave must also use their paid
sick time at the same time. That
way, the employees are paid for
their time off, and are working sick
days off the books.
Loman-Greene said this policy
is used, in part, to avoid situations
in which a person could use their
12 weeks of federally mandated

Obama said in a statement. "Small
businesses across the country have
been Waiting for Washington to act
on this bill for far too long." The new
fund would be available to communi-
ty banks with less than $10 billion in
assets to encourage lending to small
businesses. The bill would combine
the fund with about $12 billion in tax
breaks aimed at both large and small
businesses over the coming decade.

leave, then turn around and use
multiple accrued sick days granted
by the county.
Some employees have enough
saved-up sick days that they could
conceivably be out for more than a
year with sick time and leave time
combined. Requiring that the paid
sick leave runconcurrent with the
unpaid federally mandated leave
helps the county avoid such poten-
tial extended leave.

Making This Right

/ was born in New Orleans. My family still lives here. We have
to restore the Gulf communities for the shrimpers, fishermen,
hotel and restaurant owners who live and work here.
- 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 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.

Tigers not satisfied after win

Graceville quarterback Jacky Miles gets set to throw the football during a game against
the Marianna Bulldogs on Friday in Marianna. The Tigers won the game 24-21, but
Graceville coach Todd Wertenberger said his team is not satisfied after pulling off the
upset win. -Mark Skinner/Floridan

Last week, the Graceville Tigers made
school history with a win over Marianna.
This week, they're trying to keep their
focus on the future.
Graceville defeated Marianna for the
first time in 22 years on Friday, beating
the Bulldogs in Marianna 24-21.
There will be no sequel this Friday,
with the open date giving the Tigers
another week to savor their victory.
However, Graceville coach Todd
Wertenberger said that his players' atten-
tion couldn't be on the teams they have
played, but rather on the teams still left
on the schedule.
"We've still got a long way to go," the
coach said. "It was a great win for us, but
we're never satisfied with how good we
played. There's still a lot to work on."
The Tigers overcame a 21-8 halftime
deficit on Friday, rallying to outscore
Marianna 16-0 in the second half. A 30-
yard touchdown pass from Jacky Miles
to Derae Laster with just over a minute
to play put Graceville up for good.
It's a win that still has the city of
Graceville buzzing, but Wertenberger
said that he and his team have already
moved on.
"A lot of people are still talking about
it around town. It's big for them, no
question," the coach said. "But for me, I
woke up Saturday and started on
Franklin County (Graceville's next
opponent on Sept. 24 in Eastpoint). The
last game is over. We can stay as good as
we were right there, or we can get better.
That's what it's about. Win or lose, you
go get ready for the next game because
you're only as good as your last game.
That's just the nature of the business."
Many coaches prefer to have their off
week come later in the season when
injuries and the physical toll of the sea-
son are often more prevalent.

"We've still got a long way
to go. It was a great win for
us, but we're never satisfied
with how good we played."
-Todd Wertenberger,
Graceville coach

However, Wertenberger said he was
happy to have this week off, though it
would've been much more difficult had
the Tigers not completed the comeback.
" I was reading what (Sneads coach
Don Dowling) said recently about that,
how when you lose you've got that sour
taste in your mouth for a week and you
can't wait to play again," the coach said.
"But this is a good way to go into an off
week. We've been victorious, so now we
can work on stuff we need to work on,
and we don't have that bad taste in our
mouth after a loss. There are just a lot
more smiles this week than there were
the week before."
The Tigers were coming off of a dis-
appointing loss to the Northview Chiefs
in the season-opener. It seemed they
were headed for a similar fate against the
Bulldogs, but in the second half, the
Tigers wrote a different story.
"In the second half, the gu.i s started
doing what we've been asking them to
do all year," Wertenberger said. "We still
*didn't do it well all the time, but we did
it well enough that Marianna had trouble
kicking us out. That set the stage for us
to upset them. I think (Marianna) ran it
so easy on us in the first half, and with
high school kids, they probably thought
it was over and they'd score 21 more on
us in the second half.
"But in the second half, we finally set-
tled down. Hopefully, they all grew up a
little bit, and are getting it together."

Lady Pirates win in three over Cottondale

The Sneads Lady Pirates ran
their district record to 5-0 and 5-
1 overall with their fourth
straight win Monday night over
Sneads won the match in three
sets, taking the first two by
scores of 25-17 and 25-21 before
taking the third set 25-6.
It was a big finish for the Lady
Pirates, if not a great start,
according to Sneads coach
Sheila Roberts.
"Mondays have been tradi-
tionally not good days for us,
and that kind of held true," the'
coach said. "But we ended up
doing well. By the third game,
we got our rhythm again.
"Unfortunately, we made way
too many errors early on.
Cottondale was serving tough,
and they had some deep serves
that gave us a hard time."
Roberts said her team simply
wasn't prepared at the start of the
"I think my girls just had a
lack of focus," she said. "We had
the whole weekend to rest, and
this was our first time back in the
gym. I was a little bit aggravated
we didn't play better. We had
service errors that plagued us,
and it seemed like they all came

much. Cottondale did a great job
of getting the ball back over the
net. My girls were running their
offense what seemed like a lot.
They were in system and able to
connect with the ball, but
Cottondale would dig it and send
it back over. They kept doing
that, and We'd end up making a
mistake. They were battling,
serving tough, and digging
But the Lady Pirates respond-
ed with a dominant third set to
put the match away.
"I think what happened in the
third was that we cleaned up
some of our errors, and got a lot
more aggressive with our serv-
ing and consistency. We didn't
miss as many serves. We got a
big lead, and got kind of in a
rhythm offensively. Cottondale
got a little down, and we tried to
take advantage of it."

Blagojevich asks judge to nullify conviction


CHICAGO - Former Illinois
Gov. Rod Blagojevich has asked
a judge to nullify the lone con-
viction in his mostly deadlocked
corruption trial, saying the
jury's decision was underpinned
by errors at trial and misconduct
by prosecutors.
Trial Judge James Zagel
should override jurors' verdict
and acquit Blagojevich of lying
to the FBI or set it aside and try
him again on that charge,
defense attorneys said in a
motion filed at the U.S. District
Court in Chicago.
"The fact is that the govern-
ment knew - and knows - that
Blagojevich was not lying to the
FBI," says the motion, filed late
Monday. "The conviction in this
case is not legally sound."
If Zagel refuses to toss the
conviction - which many legal
observers say is likely - then
the multiple arguments in the fil-
ing could lay the groundwork for
any.appeal to a higher court.
At the end of a two-and-a-haif
month trial, jurors convicted the
impeached governor on just one
of 24 counts against him.
Prosecutors told the judge they
will try Blagojevich again on the
deadlocked charges, a retrial that
is expected to start in January.
Among the charges jurors
couldn't agree on was that the
twice-elected governor attempt-
ed to sell or trade an appoint-
ment to the U.S. Senate seat
President Barack Obama was
vacating in exchange for a lucra-
tive job or campaign donation.
The charge of lying to the FBI
was considered the'least serious
of them all, carrying a prison

Former Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich talks to members of the media at the federal building in Chicago
after a jury found him guilty of one count of lying to federal agents. Jurors only managed to convict
the ex-governor on one of 24 counts. In a motion filed late Monday Blagojevich's defense lawyers
called on trial Judge James Zagel to override the jury's decision and acquit Blagojevich of lying to the
FBI. At right is his wife Patti. - AP Photo/Kiichiro Sato

sentence of up to five years.
Other charges, including racket-
eering, could result in a 20-year
prison term. Blagojevich, 53,
has denied any wrongdoing.
Also in the filing,
Blagojevich's attorneys allude to
his financial straits, saying, a
legal fund he drew on has run
dry. One consequence, they
claim, is that he can't even foot
the bill to secure all official trial
transcripts - rendering his
lawyers' work more difficult.
But the primary focus of the
filing is the sole conviction.

Prosecutors accused
Blagojevich of lying in a March
2005 FBI interview during his
initial term as governor - first
when he asserted he kept a "fire-
wall" between, political cam-
paigns and government work;
and second when he insisted he
did not "track" campaign contri-
Jurors only agreed he lied
about not tracking donations.
But the motion argues they
should have been told they had
to agree on both before they
could convict on the single count

of lying. It also says the meaning
of 'track,' in the context of the
charge, was unclear.
It also questions why prosecu-
tors waited years to charge
Blagojevich with lying, saying
they used the charge as a way to
enter evidence that otherwise
would have been disallowed.
The filing also includes more
sweeping accusations, including
that the government pursued
Blagojevich unfairly and
"sought to fit any round peg into
any square hole it could find."
The motion claims more than

170 FBI agents fanned out when
the then-governor was arrested
on Dec. 9, 2008, knocking on
doors and pressing witnesses for
incriminating statements.
"The very manner in which
prosecutors brought this case to
trial before the court was dis-
honest, improper and constituted
judge-shopping (trying to find a
favorable court for prosecu-
tion)," the filing said. "It kick-
started the prosecutors' win-at-
any-cost tactics."
It also takes prosecutors to
task for so frequently objecting
as defense attorneys cross-
examined witnesses - inter-
rupting lawyer Sam Adam Jr.
during his fiery, sometimes the-
atrical closing argument more
than 30 times.
Zagel's "sanctioning of this
obstructionist tactic prejudiced
Blagojevich greatly," it says.
It's unlikely even
Blagojevich's attorneys believe
Zagel will grant the motion, said
Michael Helfand, a Chicago
attorney not linked to the case.
Instead, they may want to cram
as many arguments as they can
into the court record so they can
cite them during appeals.
"The chances of Judge Zagel
approving this motion is zero
percent," he said.
"But if you throw out a thou-
sand issues now, your chances
are better of just one sticking in
appeal than if you throw out just,
a few."
A spokesman for the U.S.
Attorney's office in Chicago,
Randall Samborn, declined to
comment on the filing.

September rally faltered on
the stock market Tuesday
as worries returned about
Europe's economy.
The Dow Jones industrial
average and the Standard &

closed with slight losses,
breaking a four-day win-

up strongly this September,
a historically weak month
for the market.
Stocks had edged higher

Disappointing news from
overseas hung over the
market all day. European
markets struggled to end
barely higher after reports
that German investor confi-
dence fell sharply in
September and industrial
production unexpectedly
stagnated during July in the
countries that use the euro.
Stocks in Tokyo also fell
after the yen touched anoth-

er, breaking 4-day winning streak

dollar, which is bad news
for Japanese exporters.

investors remain cautious,

The Nasdaq edged up

Signs of modest'growth
have been enough to get

traders to put more money'
into stocks in September
and shake off malaise about
the economy that dogged
the market for most of
However analysts cau-
tion that the gains have
come amid very light vol-
ume, a sign that many
investors aren't participat-
ing in the market and may
still be skeptical about how
well the economy is doing.
The losses Tuesday for

the Dow and S&P 500 were
only the second so far this
month. The earlier loss on
Sept. 7 was also triggered
about renewed worries over
Europe after news reports
questioned the health of
European banks.
September is usually a
weak month for stocks but
this year has been an excep-
tion. Even after Tuesday's
losses the Dow is still up
5.1 percent in September,
but 6.1 percent below its

2010 high reached on April
26. For the year to date it's
up 0.9 percent.
The Commerce
Department said Tuesday
that retail sales rose in
August at their fastest pace
in five months and slightly
beat forecasts. The modest-
ly higher growth is in line.
with economic reports over
the past two weeks indicat-
ing that the economy con-
tinues to expand, though at
a sluggish pace.

Stop worrying about it

Dear Annie- My husband and I have a year-
old baby boy. He is the most wonderful thing
that has ever happened to us, However, my hus-
band's family almost makes me regret having a
His steprmom didn't like me before I got
pregnant, but as soon as I gave birth, there was
a complete turnaround. She is obsessed with
babies. I wanted my husband's family to be a
part of my son's life, so I allowed her to
get closer, but the situation has .
become ridiculous.
We visit once a week, but she
constantly bugs us to bring the
baby over more often. She . -
keeps asking to be alone with $
him. She repeatedly tells me
that my husband and I need a , __,
romantic getaway and we
should let her babysit. She even
jokes about kidnapping him,
which I really don't appreciate. Her latest
request was to take him on a vacation with
her family, without us.
I am a stay-at-home mom and have no
need for a babysitter. On the weekends, my
husband. wants to be only with us. Her
demands to have the baby are really bothering
me. I don't understand why she wants to be
alone with my child, but my husband doesn't
want either of us to say anything that might
upset her. I am actually scared that she may try
to take our child. Am I overreacting? -
Waiting for Disaster
Dear Waiting: Stepmom isn't likely to kid-


It is a common problem at the bridge table: You can win the
first trick, but should you take it or duck it?
There are various guidelines, but try to analyze each case on
its own. In today's deal, you are in four spades. West leads the
diamond king. What would be your plan?
North was correct to make a simple, not a jump, overcall
because you would need littlejo make three no-trump a viable
contract: ace-doubleton of clubs and a couple of other goodies.
Your two-spade advance was forcing for one round by partner-
ship agreement. And three diamonds, a new suit at the three-
level, was also forcing.
You should win the first trick, unblock the club ace, and play
a low trump toward dummy's queen. How does West defend?
If he ducks, you win with the queen and discard a diamond on
the club king. Yes, it's lucky West has ace-doubleton of spades,
but if he had ace-third, you would have had no chance.
If West wins the third trick and continues with top diamonds,
you trump the third round in the dummy, ruff a club in your hand,
draw trumps, and concede a heart,- your diamond nine being
What happens if you duck the first trick? West should then
cash the spade ace and play another spade (which would have
killed the contract if he had done it at the first two tricks). You may
draw trumps, unblock the club ace, and try to get to dummy with
a heart, but West can stop you: He ducks if you lead the king, or
wins if you play your low card.

nap your baby, but like some obsessed grand-
parents, she would love to displace you as the
object of 'your child's affection. That isn't
going to happen, so stop worrying about it.
Your baby is too young to go on vacation with-
out you, and you should say so. When she
demands that the child be brought over more
often, reply as sweetly as possible, "We can't
manage that, but we'll try to see you on
Sunday." Repeat as needed, and ignore the rest.
Her behavior is irritating, but not threatening.
Rest assured, as your baby gets
1 older, her fixation will lessen.
Dear Annie: Whenever iny
husband writes, he mixes
S uppercase and lowercase let-
ters within his words. I have
explained that it makes him
look uneducated, but he dis-
I am embarrassed for him.
His writing is seen by many
people in his office, as well as
by clients. I am hoping that if
he sees this in print, he may
pay attention. - To Cap or Not To Cap
Dear Cap: It is correct to capitalize only
the first letter of a sentence and to leave the
remaining letters in lowercase. However, with
all the texting and e-mail these days, few peo-
ple care about proper sentence structure. And
there is some degree of personal preference
allowed in handwriting. We'd leave this alone.


VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -
Guard against strong inclina-
tions to take any material risks.
Something might sound good,
but unless you fully understand
it, you'll be taking a flyer on a
potential loss.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -
It might seem like the clever
thing to do, but getting your
associates to handle things for
you instead of doing the work
yourself will end poorly. Be self-
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22)
- Don't do anything that could
greatly weaken your financial
wherewithal if things go south.
Loading up more debt will place
you in a hopeless position.
21) - More losses will natural-
ly occur if you are impractical
regarding the management of
your working funds. It would be
like asking the fox to watch the
henhouse for you.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan.
19) - Although you might see
yourself possessing advantages
in certain areas, your judgment
may be based solely on a whole
bunch of wishful thinking. Face
the facts.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19)
- Even if there are ample
opportunities around you where
relationships are concerned, it
isn't likely that you will. know
how to use them in ways that
could benefit you.
* PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20)
- Be particularly careful when it
comes to anything that could
affect some 'financial dealings
you have with friends. Take care
not, to make any questionable
'ARIES (March 21-April 19)
- There is nothing wrong with
your ability to size up situations
accurately, .but that doesn't
,mean you'll follow what your
common sense tells you to do.
It'll be your loss if you-don't.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20)
- It'll be hard to unwind some-
thing that goes awry between
you and a few others, if neither
you nor they are willing to
accept what the problem might
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -
Miscalculations are possible,
owing to, first, your question-
able judgment, and second,
seeking counsel from some
inept advisors. Analyze 'the
advice of .those who don't agree
with you.
CANCER (June 21-July 22)
- People rarely change, so
don't place your faith in the very
people who have disappointed
you in the past. ust because you
want to believe they're different,
this isn't likely to be the case. :
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -
Anything you allow to slip
between the cracks will crowd
you into a corner as time goes
on, so, if you're smart, you'll get
all your duties and responsibili-
ties taken care of right now.

Progress made on blaze as winds return


LOVELAND, Colo. - Firefighters
were trying to gain ground on a wildfire in.
the northern Colorado foothills Tuesday
ahead of strong winds expected to move
in, potentially spreading the flames.
The fire, the second major blaze to
break out on the Front Range in a week,
has burned nearly 1,000 acres, or about
1�/2 square miles, of tinder-dry -grass and
trees in steep terrain just west of
The fire, which has destroyed two
homes, was 20 percent contained. Terry
Krasko, a spokesman for the team coordi-
nating more than 400 firefighters, said the
containment figure is expected to be high-
er by the end of the day.
"The fire's looking very, very good,"
Krasko said.
Earlier, incident team manager Jim
Thomas said the next-36 hours are pivotal
for crews to make headway because of the
wind in the forecast. Thomas said the fire
wasn't moving toward populated areas but
gusts of up to 20 mph were possible
Tuesday and winds of up to 28 mph were
expected Wednesday.
"We're going to go out and pound on
it," said Thomas, who also led the fight
against a wildfire near Boulder last week
that destroyed at least 166 homes.
The northern Colorado fire prompted
the evacuation of a four-mile radius, but

Displaced residents listen as Major Bill Nelson of the Larimer County Sheriff's
Department speaks Monday near the Bison Visitor Center in Loveland, Colo.

Road wildfire that so far has destroyed at least two homes, possibly several out-
buildings and displaced hundreds of families. - AP Photo/The Fort. Collins
Coloradoan, Dawn Madura

some residents were being allowed into
the evacuation area Tuesday to check on
their homes, escorted by sheriff's
deputies. '
Sheriff's officials said they want the
residents to spend only about 30 minutes

in their homes before they are escorted
out again.
Officials said earlier they expected
some people would stay, even if the return
was supposed to be temporary. It wasn't
clear what deputies would do if anyone

resisted leaving.
Authorities don't know exactly how
many homes and residents are in the evac-
uation area. The Red Cross said 76 evac-
uees have registered with the agency.
Sheriff's investigators believe the fire
was started Sunday by two people burning
leaves and tree branches at a home. They
plan to turn their findings over to prosecu-
tors to determine whether criminal
charges should be filed.
Larimer County on Tuesday banned
most outdoor fires, outdoor tobacco .
smoking and fireworks in unincorporated
parts of the county. The ban runs through
Nov. 1.
The fire near Boulder - which
scorched at least 10 square miles and has
cost $9.6 million to fight - has been fully
contained but firefighters were still work-
ing to put out hot spots within the perime-
ter Tuesday.
Boulder County investigators believe
that fire also was human-caused. They say
a fire started by a volunteer firefighter in a
fire pit was likely reignited by strong
winds Sept. 6, even though the firefighter
doused it with water and stirred the ashes
to put it out.
A decision on whether to file charges in
the Boulder fire wasn't expected until
early next week, district attorney's
spokeswoman Catherine Olguin said.
Olguin said sheriff's investigators have
briefed prosecutors but haven't turned
over their final report.

Years after floods, homeowners still wait for FEMA


SEELYVILLE, Ind. - Karen
Niece loves her idyllic bungalow
in the Indiana countryside, but
when storms dumped nearly a
foot of rain on her 19-acre prop-
erty in 2008, flash floods left
mold in the foundation - and
gave Niece a lung infection she
will have the rest of her life.
After the water receded, Niece
and thousands of other flood vic-
tims around the Midwest stayed,
in their damaged homes, despite
health risks, because they had
pinned their hopes on a federal
program that helps buy flood-
damaged properties. Two and
even three years later, many are
still waiting for relief.
"I really don't want to leave,
but I don't want to get sicker," the
66-year-old homemaker said, sit-
ting at her kitchen counter about
60 miles southwest. of
Indianapolis. "But I haven't
heard anything. I don't know
what they'll do or if they'll do
The Federal Emergency
Management Agency helps local
governments purchase flood-
prone properties to save on future
cleanup costs. But the buyouts
are not automatic, nor are they
quick, which is raising questions
about whether the program is
worth the limbo it creates for
"The last thing you need when
recovering from a disaster is
wondering whether FEMA is
going to have the money to pay
what they owe," said Rep. Earl
Pomeroy, a Democrat from North
Dakota, another state where the
buyout process bogged down
after FEMA's disaster aid ran dry.
. More than $13 million was on
hold in North Dakota alone,
delaying the buyouts of more
than 100 homes affected by
floods last year.
Communities that participate
in the program must agree to take
the properties off the tax rolls and
maintain them as green space.
Homeowners must decide

whether to accept the govern-
ment's offer. The process can
take months in the best cases.
In western Indiana's Vigo
County, time has virtually stood
still since June 2008, when
storms dumped up to 10 inches of
rain on parts of the state. The
floodwaters killed three, people
and caused hundreds of millions
of dollars in damage. President
Bush declared 39 Indiana coun-
ties disaster areas.
FEMA still has not approved
any of Vigo County's seven buy-
out plans.
"There are days when it's just
really hard to think about," said
Honnalora Hubbard, Niece's for-
mer neighbor. "Two years later,
you're still not able to put a trau-
matic experience behind you."
The delays in Indiana have cre-
ated "a big, long line of black
holes of people waiting," said
Dean Bruce, a member of the

town board in the southern
Indiana community of Spencer,
where 23 flooded properties still
don't have FEMA approval.
Congress passed a war funding
bill July 27 that included $5.1 bil-
lion to replenish FEMA's disas-
ter-relief fund, but there's been
little improvement.
Spokeswoman Rachel Racusen
said the agency has a backlog of
"thousands of projects" from
floods and other disasters.
"It will still take time to
resume work on longer-term
response and recovery projects
from previous disasters,"
Racusen said.
Homeowners in Wisconsin,
where floods in 2007 and 2008
caused extensive damage, are
experiencing similar delays.'
In Gays Mills, a village about
80 miles northwest of Madison,
FEMA purchased 25 homes after
the floods.

But Michelle Engh, a housing
specialist with a Wisconsin non-
profit group called CouleeCap,
said none of her clients are in
new homes yet. And many home-
owners who did receive buyouts
ldid not get paid enough to buy
netv homes, with lots of their
properties appraised for around
"There's this gap that exists
between what people received
and the cost of the new home,"
Engh said.
In Indiana, some homeowners
affected by the floods have
moved to new homes where they
pay rent or second mortgages
while still paying off the old
properties. Kellie and Darrin
DeVault still do not know how
much they will get for their
waterlogged house about 15
miles south of Indianapolis.
Floodwaters from the June
2008 storms bubbled tip from

drains into a bathroom, bedroom,
family room and fireplace on the
first level. When the water reced-
ed, the DeVaults hired a contrac-
tor to remove damaged drywall
and seal off the basement with a
new door ,at the top of the stairs.
They continued living on the
other two levels.
It was their third flood in about
six years. So when the county
offered a buyout, they jumped at
the chance. In August, they
moved into a new home on high-
er ground several miles away.
But the Indiana Department of
Homeland Security says it could
be months before they receive
any money for the old house.
"Every week that ticks by,
we're just incurring more costs,"
Kellie DeVault said.
Indiana has 25 local buyout
projects involving more than 400
homes valued at more. than $39
million. Eight projects have
FEMA approval, said Manuela
Johnson, hazard mitigation direc-
tor for the Indiana Department of
Homeland Security.
Johnson said her agency made
clear to homeowners that the
process would take time. She said-
the first buyout applications did
not go out until six to eight
months after the June 2008
Mike Pringle, director of the
Wabash Valley Long-Term
Disaster Recovery Coalition, said
local governments are hamstrung
by their own budget problems,
and there's only so much money
available each month to take ele-
vation surveys or gather other
geographic information.
"One of the lessons we've
learned: It would be better for
people not to go through the buy-
out program" if they have alter-
natives, Pringle said. "So far, we
have not seen any positive results
from the FEMA buyouts. People
are waiting."

Prosecutor says man drank for hours before fatal crash


SANTA ANA, Calif. -
A man charged with murder
in a drunken-driving crash
that killed promising Los
Angeles Angels pitcher
Nick Adenhart and two oth-
ers spent hours drinking
tequila and beer with his
stepbrother at three bars
before getting behind the
wheel of his parents' mini-
van, a prosecutor said
Andrew Gallo, 23, knew
the dangers of driving under
the influence because he.
was convicted of the offense
in 2006 and signed court
papers indicating he under-
stood that if he killed some-
one while driving drunk he
could be charged with mur-
der, Deputy District
Attorney Susan Price told
jurors in her opening state-
"The evidence will show
that this case is about an
evening of pure indulgence
and a night of total disre-
gard," Price said.
Gallo has pleaded not
guilty to three counts of sec-
ond-degree murder in the
deaths of the 22-year-old
T Adenhart, 20-year-old
Courtney Stewart and 25-

year-old Henry Pearson.
He has also pleaded not
guilty to felony hit-and-run
and two counts of driving
drunk and causing injuries
to his stepbrother Raymond
Rivera and the fourth person
in the other car, Jon Wilhite.
Gallo's blood-alcohol
level was nearly three times
the legal limit at theitime of
the crash, prosecutors said.
He could face a maximum
sentence of more than 50
years to life in prison if con-
victed of all counts.
Gallo's attorney
Jacqueline Goodman
acknowledged in her open-
ing statement that Gallo
drove while intoxicated but
stressed that he did not
intend to kill anyone. Gallo
believed his' stepbrother,
who pressured him to keep
drinking, was his designated
driver, she said.
Gallo blacked out before
the accident and doesn't
know why he was driving,
although he assumes he
was, she said.
"He did it and he has to
live with that for the rest of
his life," Goodman said.
"But Andrew Gallo is not a
Prosecutors said they took
the unusual step of charging
Gallo with second-degree

murder - and not the lesser
charge of manslaughter -

hired to represent the priva-

families, said outside court
they were angered by

Goodman's remarks.
"Three of these families,
three of these parents, they
lost their children," Fell
said. "The person that com-
mits murder is the murderer.
For him not to be classified
as a murderer is offensive to
the family."
Data from the minivan
showed Gallo accelerated
from 55.9 mph to nearly 66
mph in the five seconds
before the crash and took his
foot off the accelerator one
second before impact, Price
said. The speed limit on the
city street was 35 mph.

turned to his stepbrother and
said, 'Run, bitch, run,'" the
prosecutor said. '"Then he

American woman freed by

Iran is grateful, humbled


TEHRAN, Iran - The
American woman released
by Iran on Tuesday after
more than a year in prison
said she was grateful to
Iran's president for her free-
dom shortly before she
boarded a flight to the Gulf
sultanate of Oman where
her mother greeted her with
a warm embrace.
Iran freed Sarah Shourd,
32, after arrangements were
made to satisfy Iran's
demand for a $500,000 bail.
American officials said nei-
ther the U.S. government
nor the family put up the
money for the bail and they
thanked U.S. ally Oman,
which they said had played a
critical, behind-the-scenes
role in securing Shourd's
release. However, the case
that has deepened strains
between the U.S. and Iran Sarah
was still far from resolved, mother
Shortly after announcing
Shourd's release, Iranian airport
authorities said they are not Tuesday

Shourd - her fiance Shane Oman

Fattal. Iran has charged all
three with spying, though their families
say they were innocent hikers arrested
in a scenic mountain area along Iran's
border with Iraq.
"I want to really offer my thanks to
everyone in the world, all of the gov-
ernments, all of the people, that have
been involved, and especially, particu-
larly want to address President
Ahmadinejad and all of the Iranian
officials, the religious leaders, and
thank them for this humanitarian ges-
ture," Shourd told Iran's English-lan-
guage Press TV at the airport before
she flew out.
"I'm grateful and I'm very humbled
by this moment," she added. "I've
learned a lot from women in the
Middle East in this part of the world
and I have a lot of respect for women
and the tradition that surrounds them. I
just want to assure you that my com-
mitment to truth will not change. You
know, when I go back to my country
and I will never say anything but the
truth to media and I will not succumb

Iranian President Mahmoud
Ahmadinejad has said Shourd was
being released on compassionate
grounds because of health reasons. Her
mother says she has serious medical
problems, including a breast lump and
precancerous cervical cells.
Shourd arrived in Oman on a private
government jet after a flight of about
two hours. She was greeted with an
embrace from her mother and then,
looking relaxed and smiling, they
strolled arm-in-arm on their way out.
President Barack Obama and U.S.
Secretary of State Hillary Clinton both
thanked Oman for its assistance and
U.S. officials said Omani negotiators
were key in the release. The Omanis
worked with Swiss diplomats and the
Iranian judiciary to win her freedom,
particularly in resolving the issue of
bail, the officials said.
Oman '"in recent days and weeks
became a key interlocutor to help us
work this case with the Iranian govern-

ment," State Department
spokesman P.J. Crowley
said. "And we are very
grateful to the role that
Oman has played."
Tehran's chief prosecutor
Abbas Jafari Dowlatabadi
said a $500,000 bail had
been paid to Iran's Bank
Melli in Muscat, Oman but
did not say who paid it. A
U.S. official said neither the
U.S. government nor the
families of the hikers had
paid the bail, but could not
say who else might have
- paid it. The official spoke on
condition of anonymity
-- - because of the sensitivity of
the issue.
Crowley said he could not
say whether any money had
changed hands in winning
Shourd's release, but noted
that "arrangements were
made that satisfied Iranian
requirements under their
judicial system." At the
aces her same time, he said the U.S.
the royal government had no informa-
e roya tion to suggest that any U.S.
an, Iran or international sanctions
Iran on imposed on Iran over its
she was nuclear program had been
n shortly violated in making those
anate of arrangements.
a warm "The United States did
not pay anything for her
release. As you know, the
government of Iran, through
their judicial process, had specific
requirements for her release, and
arrangements were made that satisfied
those requirements," Crowley said.
"Someone provided sufficient assur-
ances to the government of Iran that
satisfied, you know, their stipulations
for release."
Obama welcomed the release but the
families of the three Americans had
mixed emotions.
"All of our families are relieved and
overjoyed that Sarah has at last been
released but we're also heartbroken
that Shane and Josh are still being
denied their freedom for no just cause,"
they said. in a.statement.
"We applaud,the Iranian authorities
for showing compassion in Sarah's
case and again call on them to do the
only right thing and release Shane and
Josh immediately," the families said.
"They deserve to come home too. Iran
has no grounds to deprive them of their
liberty a moment longer."

killed eight and injured scores of people.
Across town, about 2,000 people were cleared from
the 324-meter (1,063-foot) Eiffel Tower on the banks of
the Seine River, and police were checking it for suspi-
cious objects, the spokesman at the police headquarters
said. He declined to give his name, citing department
policy. Eiffel Tower security services made the decision
to clear out tourists and workers following the threat, the
spokesman said.
Despite the scare at the tower, tourists and curious
Parisians continued to mill around the surrounding side-
walks, and traffic continued to circulate nearby. Several
police trucks were posted under the tower, and officers
stood guard.
I The tower is France's most popular monument, and
6.6 million people visited it last year.
Bomb scares are frequent in Paris, and the city has
experienced terrorism firsthand. Algerian Islamic insur-
gents bombed the Saint-Michel station on July 25, 1995,
killing eight people and injuring 150.
It was the first attack in a campaign of violence that
terrorized Paris subway commuters for a time. Gas
cooking canisters loaded with nails, sometimes hidden
in garbage cans, were used in many of the bombings.
