Jackson County School District earns 'B'

The long-awaited high
school grades released as part
of the annual Adequate Yearly
Progress review were
announced Monday.
All Jackson County high
schools either maintained
their grade or went .up. The
Jackson County school dis-
trict as a whole scored a "B".
Throughout the state, 30
percent of schools earned an
"A", 41 percent earned a "B",
15 percent earned a "C", 12
percent earned a "D", and 2
percent earned an "F".
Jackson County School
District Superintendent Lee
Miller said he thinks the dis-
trict is making a move in the
right direction.
"(I'm) proud of our results
and proud of the schools and
the efforts they have made to
improve," Miller said.
"They've all worked hard."
Marianna High School
made the most improvement,
scoring a "B". In 2009 the
school scored a "D".
Marianna had enough
points for an "A", but lost a
letter grade because half of
the lowest 25 percent of stu-
dents didn't show learning
gains in reading, according to
Shirl Williams, Jackson
County School District direc-
tor of student services.
Graceville High School has
received an "A" the last two

years. It was the only high
school in the district to score
an "A".
Graceville Principal Chris
Franklin said great teachers
and staff, and overwhelming
community support resulted
to the school's success.
"I'm so proud of our teach-
ers, staff and students. They
work so hard together to get
these results," Franklin said.
"It's a team effort and we are
proud of them."
Franklin said the biggest
thing that has contributed to
the school's success is there
are good teachers in all areas.

teachers are great, and this

Convicted bank robber gets life

Larry Jerome Williams was sen-
tenced to life and 15 years for robbing
PeoplesSouth Bank in Greenwood at
gunpoint earlier this year, and for
pointing a gun at Jackson County
Deputy Michael Baxter.
Williams was convicted last week
on charges of robbery with a firearm,
and aggravated assault on a law
enforcement officer with a firearm.
Williams' defense attorney, Jason
Winn, asked for the minimum 10-year
sentence. Winn argued Williams had
received a special education diploma,

the crime was unsophisticated in
nature, and that Williams acted under
"extreme duress." He also added the
.45-caliber gun used in the incident
wasn't loaded.
During the trial, Williams and Winn
never denied Williams committed the
robbery. Williams said during the trial
he was forced to commit the crime by
one of the other defendants. He said
neighbor Maurice O'Hara Wilson
threatened to kill him, his son and his
79-year-old mother if he didn't rob
the bank.
At the sentencing hearing, Williams
spoke to Circuit Judge Bill Wright
and said he felt "unpleased about this

whole situation," adding that he "did-
n't know what to do" during the inci-
"I was scared," Williams said.
The state asked for life. Lead pros-
ecutor Russ Wilson argued that
Williams is a nine-time convicted
felon. Wilson listed a number of
William's previous convictions,
including exploiting the elderly, neg-
lect of a child, assault and burglary.
"His criminal history in and of itself
would tend to support the state's
request for the life sentence, but this is
his 10th felony," Wilson said.

Our Opinion

The lesser

Federal regulators have intervened in two
more banks in Jackson County. In each case,
the feds stepped in to ensure the banks beefed
up their capital and dealt with their dud loans.
They aren't being taken over and aren't in
immediate danger of collapse; but regulators
want to make sure it doesn't come to that.
These aren't the first banks in the county to
face this kind of treatment. In fact, in most of
the other cases, the feds' intervention has been
more severe.
People's First is no more it's now
Hancock Bank. Bank of Bonifay, the oldest
state chartered bank in Florida, was sold to
First Federal of Florida. Even Wachovia is
now owned by Wells Fargo. In every case,
federal regulators stepped in and forced the
Many were critical of the federal bank
bailout scheme; many still are. But as the list
of troubled institutions grows, even here in
Jackson County, we are left to wonder just
what the alternative was. Should they all have
been allowed to fail?
It is a fact of politics that sometimes deci-
sions must be made that are unpopular but
necessary. The bank bailout was, in retro-
spect, one such decision. We can, and should,
complain that taxpayers' money was used to
shore up bad decision-making by the banks.
But the pain that would have been'inflicted on
everyone even depositors and lenders here
in Jackson County would have been far
worse had there been no bailout.
And it's not over yet. While the private sec-
tor is showing signs of recovery, state and
local governments across the country are just
now beginning to feel the crunch, as lower
sales tax revenues, lower income tax revenues
and lower property values now work their
way through the system.
There will be no quick and easy fixes for
this one, as school districts and municipalities
find they must either cut their spending, raise
taxes, or both. Expect more unpopular but
necessary decisions, even here in Jackson

In the midst of the 2008 presi-
dential campaign, President
George W. Bush invited Sen.
John McCain and then-Sen.
Barack Obama, separately, to the
White House to discuss the cata-
strophic crateringg" of the U.S.
economy. Because of this invita-
tion, McCain asked Obama to
postpone the, first presidential
candidates debate.
Obama declined: He explained
why a few days later at a town
hall meeting in Florida: "It is
going to be part of the president's
job to deal with more than one
thing at once."
The same may be said of
Congress, even a "lame duck"
This week, President Obama
met with leaders from both the
Democratic and Republican
leadership. The White House
Bipartisan Conference was sup-
posed to be ... bi-partisan.
But Sen. Mitch McConnell, R-
Ky., and'Speaker-elect Rep. John
Boehner, R-Ohio, must have a
hearing problem. They entered
the meeting with a pre-deter-
mined agenda: not "bi-partisan,"
but "be-partisan."
On second thought, maybe it's
not a hearing problem because,
based on their actions,
Republicans hear the "be-parti-
san" mantra quite well:


"No" to jobs for Americans.
"No" to health care for
"No" to successful gover-
* "No" to constructively solving
the country's problems.
"No" to ending welfare for the
It's not a hearing problem,
because the Republicans have
made it clear they intend to "be-
partisan" and nothing but -
regardless of the consequences to
the country. Rather, it's a "heed-
ing" problem. The Republicans
are so determined to make
Obama fail that they themselves
fail to heed the Constitution. (The
executive power shall be vested
in a president of the United
They also fail to heed the voice
of the voters.
The voters want compromise
and cooperation. The voters want
common ground. The voters
want solutions, not sound bites. If
the Republicans recognize this,
they don't seem to care. For
them, it seems, the solution is to
make Obama fail. How else can
we explain their refusal to coop-
erate with Obama, even when
they agree on the issues?
, It seems the Republicans want
one-party rule. Or one rule to
party: The Republicans are right
because they say so. And pity any
member of the press who doesn't

frame the issues according to the
Republican viewpoint -however
vague and ill-defined that view-
point is.
Here's a short list of
Republican 'No's from the lame-
duck Congress: No equal pay for
women; No' benefits for emer-
gency responders injured during
9/11; No to the Reagan-initiated
START treaty (ironic); No help
for unemployed Americans; No
end to welfare for the wealthy
(insisting the rich keep a discount
on their taxes the rest of us .can't
afford); No to dealing with the
deficit rather than just talking.
about it,
Republicans only quack about
a "lame duck" Congress when it
isn't theirs. It was a "lame duck"
Republican Congress that
impeached Bill Clinton and cre-
ated the Department of
Homeland Security.
I can appreciate President
Obama's efforts at compromise
and conversation, although
frankly, when you reach too far
across the aisle, you fall over.
Here's the Republican position
on the economy: cut spending
too fast, too soon; question the
independence of the Federal
Reserve Board; threaten a gov-
ernment shutdown; punish the
poor and reward the rich. Studies
show that maintaining unem-
ployment benefits promotes eco-
nomic growth and creates jobs,

Bipartisan? Well, a


Could it actually be that
President Baraok Obama and
congressional Republicans can
work together to get stuff done?
My bet is: temporarily, and on
a limited basis, because they
have to. But soon enough we'll
be back to partisan war as usual.
The good news is that, having
been clobbered in the last elec-
tion, Obama finally realizes he
can't ignore the Republicans as
he's done more or less systemat-
ically for the past two years.
The bad news is that
Republicans, having won the
House and hJaving strong
prospects for capturing the
Senate in 2012, will try to deny
Obama any significant accom-
plishments over the next two
years in hopes of defeating him
and controlling the whole gov-
ernment in 2013.
Obama had it right when he
said on Tuesday, after meeting
with leaders of both parties, that
"the American people did not
vote for gridlock. They didn't
vote for unyielding partisanship.
They're demanding cooperation
and they're demanding
That's an old Obama theme,
famously dating back to the
2004 Democratic National
Convention speech that
launched his national political
career. But does he know how to
walk his talk?
On two issues, at least,
Republicans and Democrats
absolutely have to come to terms

this month: the Bush-era tax cuts
and funding the government for
the rest of the fiscal year.
It's nothing less than legisla-
tive malfeasance that Congress
did not perform these basic
functions before the election.
Having failed to enact a budg-
et resolution this year for just the
fifth time since 1975, Congress
has not passed a single one of
the 12 appropriations bills to
fund (and set priorities for) fed-
eral departments.
It's likely that, during the
lame-duck session, Congress
will punt again, merely passing a
continuing resolution to keep the
government operating into next
Meantime, the tax cuts are set
to expire Jan. 1 unless a new law
is passed, raising everyone's
taxes with the economy, at best,
staggering out of recession.
Obama and most Democrats
want to keep the cuts just for
families earning less than
$250,000. Republicans want to
make all of them permanent.
There's almost certain to be a
compromise of some sort. But it
could be merely a split-the-dif-
ference pact, or a creative one.
The best one I've seen, recom-
mended by Sens. Judd Gregg.
R-N.H., and Ron Wyden, D-
Ore., is to extend all the cuts for
two years -and then adopt
sweeping tax reform to elimi-
nate loopholes and lower corpo-
rate and individual rates, making
the tax code simpler, fairer and
more economically efficient.

As the co-chairmen of
Obama's debt commission
reported last month, the $1.1 tril-
lion a year in "tax earmarks"
written into the revenue code
,benefit the top 1 percent of tax-
payers at a rate double that of
any other income group.
Democrats had hoped to use
the waning days of their domi-
nance of the government to push
through noneconomic items on
their agenda, notably the
DREAM Act to benefit children
of illegal immigrants, permis-
sion for openly gay service
members in the military and the
new START agreement with
They succeeded in passing a
food safety bill through the

Democratic leaders' attention on
the appropriate priorities, but
what then? Is there hope for

pensation extension, START

There's reason to hope for
some of it if time does not run
out. Even though it's cruel and a
waste of human potential,
DREAM may be doomed
because Republicans hate the
idea of giving "amnesty" to any
illegal immigrants, even if they

But it's their money. Yes, it's
also money we taxpayers have
used to pay for roads, bridges and
other infrastructure needs of pri-
vate companies to build indus-
tries for the common good. We're
supposed to believe in shared
sacrifice. Right?
Obama is trying to do more
than one thing at a time. If we're
serious and I know I am in that
camp about containing long-
term deficits, why would anyone
propose adding an additional
$700 billion to America's debt in
order to give millionaires and bil-
lionaires another round of tax

Obama defends tax deal,

says he's kept promises

With fellow Democrats
balking, President Barack
Obama declared Tuesday
that a compromise with
Republicans on tax cuts
was necessary to help the
economy and protect
Americans. He passionate-
ly defended his record
against Democrats who
complain he's breaking
campaign promises.
"Take a tally. Look at
what I promised during the
campaign. There's not a
single thing that I haven't
done or tried to do," the
president said.
He staunchly defended
his decision to deal with
the GOP in order to extend
about-to-expire tax cuts for
all Americans.
"There are some who
would have preferred a
protracted political fight,"
the president said at a
White House news confer-
ence a day after the com-
promise was announced.
"And I understand the
desire for a fight. I'm sym-
pathetic to that."
Many Democrats in
Congress are unhappy.
about .the agreement
because it continues tax
breaks for the wealthiest
Americans. But Obama
said a long political battle
"would be a bad deal for
the economy. And it would
be a bad deal for the
American people."
He promised a renewed
fight during 201,2 when the
tax cuts would expire
again, making the point
that he still opposes the
Republican position that
high-income earners
should get the extension,
too. The agreement
includes individuals mak-
ing $200,000 or more a
year and families making
$250,000 or more.
Obama called "tax'cuts
for the wealthy" the
Republicans' "holy grail."
"It seems to be their eco-
nomic doctrine," Obama
added, previewing a likely
argument during his
expected re-election race
in 2012.
In the agreement, the
,president gave up a key
goal. But he said the deal
would stop taxes from ris-
ing for middle class
Americans, "which is what
I promised."
"It's a good deal for the
American people," Obama
Obama cast his decision
to accede to the GOP posi-
tion on extending the tax
cuts in stark terms.
"It's tempting not to
negotiate with hostage tak-
ers unless the hostage
gets harmed. Then, people
will question the wisdom
of that strategy. In this
case, the hostage was the
American people, and I
was not willing to see them
get harmed."
He made a point to note

that he long has, opposed
- and still opposes -
He said the American
people agree with his posi-
tion, but "I haven't per-
suaded the Republican
Party." Reflecting the
newly increased
Republican clout in
Congress, he said: ."I
haven't persuaded (Senate
Republican leader) Mitch
McConnell and I haven't
persuaded (House GOP
leader) John Boehner'."
Even though Democrats
will control both houses of
Congress until January,
Obama insisted the deaY

port in Congress to 'extend

"This isn't an abstract
debate. This is real money
for real people," he said.
"This package will help
strengthen the recovery.
That I'm confident about."
Obama called the news

Democratic criticism of
the agreement, which still

It was part of a full-scale
defense, with the White

House arguing the deal
would pump billions into
the economy at a time it is
recovering from the worst
recession in eight decades
and unemployment stands
at 9.8 percent.
The plan calls for
extending tax cuts from the
Bush era that are due to
expire at year's end,
renewing jobless benefits
through the end of 2011
and granting a one-year cut
in Social Security taxes.
Several officials said the
package could add $900
billion or more to the fed-
eral deficit over two years.
Obama said. he expects
the unemployment rate to
go down' because of the
compromise, although he
would not predict by how
He also said he believes

Gamblers spending

The amount of time gam-
blers are spending in Atlantic
City casinos is falling, and
they're holding on more
tightly to their wallets while
they're there.
A new statistical study
shows the amount of time
gamblers spent inside casi-
nos in the nation's second-
largest gambling market is
down more than 22 percent,
and the amount of money
they spend there is down
almost 30 percent over the
last four years.
And the hit to the casinos'
bottom line is substantial:
gross operating profit per
hour is down 61 percent.
George Cosgrove, a 69-
year-old retiree from
Whiting, N.J., comes to
Atlantic City once a month
with his wife, visiting a dif-
ferent casino each time. One
day last week he was taking a
break on a Boardwalk bench
outside the Atlantic City
Hilton Casino Resort, which
hasn't paid its mortgage in
more than a year and a half
and which reported $4.7 mil-
lion in gross operating losses
in the third quarter compared
to gross operating profits of
$888,000 a year ago.
"It's easy to see for your-
self go in there, and
there's hardly anybody in
there," Cosgrove said,
motioning to the Hilton.
Cosgrove estimates he and
his wife are spending at least
30 percent less at the casinos
this year.
Michael Pollock, manag-
ing director of Spectrum
Gaming Group, which wrote
the study, said the numbers
show just how drastically the
Atlantic City market is
"It's shifting toward a visi-
tor base that is less gambling-
centric, which means they're
gambling less per: hour with
tighter wallets," he said.
"Recessions end, and when it
does, what Atlantic City
needs to do is diversify its

customer base."
The study examined third-
quarter figures from 2006 to
2010 in three areas: gross
gaming revenue per visitor
hour (the amount of money
casinos take in for every hour
a gambler is on their premis-
es); total visitor hours, and

"I just didn't think

Keith said that at some
point he felt a vibration in
a control panel, smelled
gas, then a short time later
heard a loud explosion. He
headed for a lifeboat.
The explosion aboard
the Deepwater Horizon on
April 20 killed 11 men
and led to more than 200
million gallons of oil
spewing from BP's under-
sea well, according to the
government's latest peer-
reviewed tally. Roughly
34 million gallons were
captured at the wellhead.
BP argues the govern-

much oil was released is
overstated. The amount of
oil spilled is central to
how much BP and other
companies may be

annual grades

majority of Florida's high
schools got an A or B
under a new school grad-
ing system that takes into
account graduation rates
and performance in
Advanced Placement
Out of 470 high schools
that were graded, 30 per-
cent got an A and 41 per-
cent a B. Another 15 per-
cent received a C, while
12 percent were given a D
and 11 percent an F.
The grades represent a
sharp increase in the
number of A and B level
schools in the 2009-2010
school year compared to a
year before.
Florida Gov. Charlie
Crist said the grades are a
sign that school reform
efforts are moving in the
right direction. Education
Commissioner Eric Smith
said the scores are evi-
dence that schools have
"stepped up their efforts

to offer demanding
coursework' for their, stu-
dents and graduate more
of them prepared for col-
lege or a career."
"Under the new high
school grading formula,
Florida has raised the bar
of what our students are
expected to achieve, and
our schools have proven
they can and will surpass
those expectations,"
Smith said.
According to state fig-
ures released last month,
Florida's high school
graduation rate rose to 79
percent in 2010, a 2.5 per-
cent increase over the pre-
vious year, driven largely
by improvements among
black and Hispanic stu-
dents. In a conference call
with reporters, Smith also
pointed to rising levels in
both participation and

ture is improving.


Florida's 2011-12 budget

that she expects a predict-

$2.5 billion difference
between anticipated rev-
enues and expenses rang-
ing from high priority to
critical for the 2011-12
budget year that begins
July 1.
Amy Baker, coordinator
of the Legislature's Office
of Economic and
Demographic Research,
told the committee that all
the numbers haven't yet
been crunched, but it looks
like general revenue will
be lower and costs higher
than in the prior forecast.
"It sounds like it's all
bad, but the truth of the
matter is we are starting to
show improvement" in the
economy, Baker said. "It's

JD Alexander, R-Lake
Wales, said it's too early to
tell whether lawmakers
will be able to cut spend-

property and corporate
income taxes as Scott, also
a Republican, proposed
during his campaign.
"Now we are in the gov-
erning mode," Alexander
said. "I would hope that all

in real estate values than
previously predicted for
The state now also
expects to collect $30 mil-
lion less from utility gross
receipt taxes earmarked
for education construction
and maintenance projects.
Gasoline and other trans-
portation taxes also are
expected to drop, which
would cut funding for road
building and maintenance.
Economists will meet
Dec. 14 to update their
forecast of general rev-

enue, mainly sales tax, but
collections are running
$136 million below esti-
mate for the current budg-
et year. Baker said it looks
like they'll be off another
$100 million for
November when those col-
lections are calculated in a
couple weeks.

enue estimate for the next
budget year is $24.7 bil-

Scott will use to make his
budget recommendations
to the Legislature early
next year.
Other drags on the
budgetary outlook include
flat lottery receipts and a
drop in slot machine gam-
bling. Motor vehicle fee
collections also are pro-
jected to drop.
Alexander said his main
focus will on reducing
Medicaid expenses, also a
key plank of Scott's plat-
form. More than half of
those funds come from the
federal government, but
the state's portion still eats
up nearly half of Florida's
6 percent sales tax,
Alexander said.
"I may have to go there,
but I'm trying to do it by
controlling costs in other

AP newsbreak: 1st chewing

tobacco settlement reached

AssocLATmD PREss

NEW HAVEN, Conn. -
The maker of Skoal and
Copenhagen smokeless
tobacco has agreed to pay $5
million to the family of a
man who died of mouth can-
cer in what is believed to be
the first wrongful-death set-
tlement from chewing
U.S. Smokeless Tobacco
Co. will pay the award to the
family of Bobby Hill of
Canton, N.C., who began
chewing tobacco at 13. He
died in 2003 at 42.
Attorney Antonio Ponvert
Mn, who represented Hill's
relatives, told The
Associated Press about the
agreement Tuesday. The
company later confirmed
the settlement in a regulato-
ry filing.
"This company manufac-
tures and sells a dangerous
and defective product that it
knows causes addiction, dis-
ease and death in consumers
who use it as intended,"
Ponvert said.
Steven Callahan, a
spokesman for Altria, which
acquired U.S. Smokeless
Tobacco last year, said the
company does not make
any health claims about its
products, and it supports
programs and laws to
reduce underage tobacco
Mark Gottlieb, director of
the Tobacco Products
Liability Project at

Northeastern University in
Boston. said he believes it's
the first case of its kind and
predicted more lawsuits
involving smokeless tobac-
"I think this is sort of a
wake-up call to the plain-
tiff's bar that there are a lot
of victims of smokeless
tobacco use out there, and
it's possible these cases can
be successful," Gottlieb
Smokeless tobacco com-
panies managed to fend off
previous lawsuits. In the
past, lawyers focused more
on cigarette makers because
of stronger evidence to back
up their claims, even though
smokeless tobacco is harm-
ful as well, Gottlieb said.
"So this is an unusual
instance and runs counter to
what had been the sort of the
playbook for tobacco litiga-
tion," Gottlieb said. The set-
tlement shows that "perhaps
there is a new strategy afoot
in terms of dealing with
some of these types of
But, Gottlieb added,
Altria may have simply
wanted to resolve legal
issues remaining from its
acquisition and concluded it

was cheaper to settle than
risk a larger award at trial.
Ponvert said his case was
bolstered by previously
undisclosed letters from the
1980s that the company sent
to minors thanking them for
their business and sending
them free samples. The
company even sent a can
opener to one child to help
open the chewing tobacco.
he said.
"It was just this unbeliev-
able trail of incredibly
damning documents,"
Ponvert said.
Hill's case also was strong
because he was a longtime
user of chewing tobacco
who did not drink or smoke
cigarettes, factors tobacco
companies point to as caus-
ing the cancer, Ponvert said.
Hill's wife, Kelly, filed the
lawsuit in 2005 after her
husband died of cancer of
the tongue, Ponvert said.
Through her attorney,
Hill's wife declined to com-
Hill had multiple surger-
ies to remove his tongue,
Ponvert said. Mouth cancer
victims typically lose parts
of their mouth, either
through surgery or because
the tissue wastes away.

Monday.- Mark


Cottondale beats Holmes

The Cottondale Lady
Hornets improved their

evening with a 71-66 win
over the visiting Lady Blue
Devils from Holmes
The game was back and
forth until late in the fourth
quarter, when the Lady
Hornets pulled away by
five. The two teams played

to a 14-14 tie after one peri-
od of play, with Holmes
County taking a five-point
lead into the locker room at
the half, 37-32.
Both teams picked up
their game up a step follow-
ing the half time break,
with Cottondale posting 18

The Marianna Bulldogs

a pair of dual meets at
Arnold High School over
the weekend.
The Bulldogs competed

"We beat teams

-Ron Thoreson,
Marianna head coach

Marianna went 2-3 on
Friday, beating Leon and
Bay, while losing to
Bozeman, Gulf Breeze,
and Arnold.
On Saturday, Marianna
went 3-2, beating
Choctawhatchee, Godby
and Bay, and losing to
Arnold and Gulf Breeze
yet again.
The 'Dawgs finished
fourth out of eight teams
on Friday, and fourth out
6f 15 teams on Saturday
It was a solid effort by
the young Bulldogs,
according to coach Ron
"We beat the teams we
were supposed to beat,
and lost to the teams we
were supposed to lose to,"
he said. "Doing 10 match-
es in two days was asking
a lot of our kids. But I
thought they did a great
job considering where
we're at. We have some
young freshmen and a lot
'of inexperience, and we
wrestled against some big-
ger and tougher schools."
Devin Combs and TJ
Griffin each got their first
victories for the Bulldogs,
who will next go to
Bozeman for a tourna-
ment on Dec. 14, and then
to Gulf Breeze for another
tourney on Dec. 18.
"The kids wrestled
tough," Thoreson said.
"Gulf Breeze is an estab-
lished program, and we
did wrestled well against
them. The score may not
look like it, but they did
"I think we made
progress. Choctaw is like
us, a young team, and we
beat them pretty well. We
beat them 60-24, so that
tells me that the kids are
getting better."

Miami looking forward

to Notre Dame matchup


Despite a disappointing
season ending with the
firing of coach Randy
Shannon, the Miami
Hurricanes have the
opportunity .to end on a
positive note with a win
over longtime rival Notre
Dame in the Sun Bowl.
The two heated rivals
will meet for the first time
since 1990.
"Catholics, convicts,
we are familiar with that,"
senior cornerback Ryan
Hill said Monday. "I'm
sure in the next 20 days
we are going to be
reminded heavily through
the media. We are excited
about it."
Following a 7-5 record
in the regular season.
Shannon was fired Nov.
27. He went 28-22 in four
years at his alma mater.
Shannon's predecessor
has not been determined
yet. Athletic director
Kirby Hocutt is in New
York for the National
Football Foundation and

awards dinner, and he is
expected to meet with
potential candidates while
Offensive line coach
Jeff Stoutland was
appointed interim coach,
with the remaining assis-
tants staying on the staff
for the Dec. 31 bowl
"I don't know what else
you could ask for. A.
Miami-Notre Dame
matchup is pretty neat,"
Stoutland said. "A lot of
history there between the
two schools."
Notre Dame leads the
series 15-7-1.
"It's not a BCS champi-
onship, but when you put
Miami and Notre Dame
together, we're not going
there to lose, point blank,
period," Hill said.
The Hurricanes will
begin practices in Coral
Gables on Dec. 11. They
will fly to El Paso. Texas
on Dec. 26 for their first
appearance in the Sun
"It's going to be real
different up there," senior
left tackle Orlando

Franklin said. "I heard we
might have to put on
some sombreros and big
cowboy boots so I'm all
for it."
Stoutland will have a
big decision ahead of him
in terms as to who will
start at quarterback.
Junior Jacory Harris start-
ed 23 straight games
before suffering a concus-
sion on Oct. 30 in a loss
to Virginia. Freshman
Stephen Morris stepped
in and has started the last
four games guiding the
Hurricanes a 2-2 mark.
Harris relieved the inef-
fective Morris in the last
game in a loss to South
Florida ending Shannon's
"Forget about the quar-
terback, how about the
starting right guard or the
left tackle," Stoutland
said. "To me it's open
season. That's what's
great about this opportu-
nity. You have a chance to
go out and compete. The
window is open."

Boise St. president blasts BCS

BOISE, Idaho Boise State
President Bob Kustra is taking
another swing at the Bowl
Championship .Series, this time
condemning the system that deter-
mines the national championship
and other postseason games for
being allowed to operate under a
shroud of secrecy.
Kustra dashed off an e-mail to
fellow university presidents and
conference commissioners
Tuesday, one day after analysts
discovered an error in the final
BCS rankings.
The glitch caused BCS officials
to revise the computer rankings,
moving Boise State up one spot to
No. 10 and dropping LSU to No.
The adjustment didn't have any
impact on the Broncos' postseason
date in the MAACO Bowl in Las
Vegas with No. 20 Utah. But it
gave Kustra, a votal and persistent
BCS critic, an opportunity to blast
officials from the BCS and the
NCAA for the system's lack of
public accountability..
"How many times have we heard
calls for transparency on our cam-
puses and how many times* have
we shared our governance and
communicated with our faculties
and other constituencies in trans-
parent fashion," Kustra wrote in an

Boise State University president
Bob Kustra addresses members of
the media during a news confer-
ence in Boise, Idaho.-AP Photo
e-mail obtained by The Associated
Press. "Yet, in intercollegiate-ath-
letics, with the NCAA standing
silently on the sidelines, we allow
the BCS to work its magic with no
idea of how accurate its rankings
are on a week to week basis."
The discrepancy was discovered
by Jerry Palm, who runs the web-
sites www.collegebcs.com and

www.collegerpi.com, in the Colley
Matrix computer ratings, one of
six used by the BCS.
Wesley Colley said Palm, who
verifies the Colley Matrix ratings,
noticed the results of an FCS
playoff game involving
Appalachian State and Western
Illinois had not been included in
the data base used to generate the
BCS executive director Bill
Hancock said in a statement that
he was "deeply 'disturbed" when
he learned of the mistake.
"This error should not have hap-
pened and is unacceptable.. The
final standings have been correct-
ed. Fortunately, it had no effect on
any team's eligibility for the BCS
games. But the simple fact that it
could have means this issue will
be near the top of the agenda for
the conference commissioners'
annual review next spring,"
Hancock said.
Kustra wbuld prefer to see more
significant changes in college
football's method for ranking
teams and declaring a national
champion, and the recent BCS
mistake rekindled aggravation
with a system he complains treats
schools from smaller conferences
like second-class citizens.

Jets embarrassed;

'NFL deserved better'


N.J. The New York
Jets went to New England
looking to make a state-
They did. The wrong
A day after being
embarrassed on national
television, the Jets were
wondering how every-
thing went so wrong in a
45-3 drubbing on
Monday night.
"It was the game of the
year," a bloodshot-eyed
coach Rex Ryan said
Tuesday. "The unfortu-
nate thing is I feel bad for
ourselves, obviously, our
fans and, really, the NFL.
The NFL deserved a bet-
ter game than that, but we
weren't up to the task."
That was clear early in
the Jets' most lopsided
loss since falling to the
Miami Dolphins in 1986
by the same score. New
York was 10-1 at that
point, and that defeat,
along with injuries,
sparked a five-game los-
ing streak.
Ryan acknowledged
that there's plenty the Jets
(9-3) need to fix before
their game Sunday
against the Dolphins (6-
6) to avoid a similar fate.
He said he never left the
facility after getting back
from the game early
Tuesday morning.
"We got pummeled, we
played terrible, but it's
one game," Ryan said.
"Everything we talked
about is still attainable."
Everything, meaning, a
Super Bowl trophy -
something Ryan -guaran-
teed during training
camp. And, despite the
humiliation, Ryan is con-
fident his guys can turn
things around.
"We have a quarter of

New York Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez (6) turns to
walk off the field after not being able to convert a
third down and short yardage play during their sec-
ond quarter of their NFL football game against the
New England Patriots Monday night in Foxborough,
Mass. New Englahd Patriots cornerback Kyle
Arrington (27) celebrates.- AP Photo

our season left," he said,
"so we're far from press-
ing the panic button."
The same can't be said
of -some distraught fans
who flooded sports radio
shows with calls wonder-
ing if the Jets can possi-
bly bounce back from this
kind of loss. The per-
formance was also heavi-
ly criticized by the media,
with everyone from Ryan
to Mark Sanchez to the
vaunted defense getting
"This humble pie tastes
like a car tire and it goes
down like peanut butter,"
defensive tackle Sione
Pouha said after the
game. "That's how it
feels. Sunday can't come
soon enough."

There will be lots to do
in the days leading up to
that, though. The players
will gather as a team
Wednesday morning, and
Ryan said he'll address
them at that point.
"I'll have a specific
message," he said, "that
I'll share with them
You can be sure there
won't be many smiles in
that room, nor should
there be after what went
down at Gillette Stadium.
"We really have to do
some soul searching and
see what we're really
about, what type of team
we want to be," wide
receiver Brad Smith said.
"I think we will be all

Miami concedes playoff

chances are slim to none


DAVIE Over and over, rookie cor-
nerback Nolan Carroll replayed the
Miami Dolphins' latest missed opportu-
Hours after a dismal loss to Cleveland,
Carroll slunk to the Dolphins' complex,
sat down in front of a video machine and
studied the potential game-winning
interception he dropped.
"I came in here last night and saw it
about four times," Carroll said Monday.
"It was a long four times. I spent 10
minutes each time I saw it, breaking
down different ways I could have done
"But I can't get it back. I've just got to
put it away. I can't go back in time and
do anything about it. I've just got to
move on."
That's true for Carroll's teammates,
too, even though the future's none too
bright. A 13-10 loss to the Browns left
Miami at 6-6, with four games to go and
only the faintest hopes of reaching the
The Dolphins are two games behind
Baltimore in the race for the final AFC
wild-card berth, and the Ravens hold the
tiebreaker. The gap is even greater in the
AFC East, where Miami trails the
Patriots and Jets.
' "I understand where we are right
now," coach Tony Sparano said. "We
know that we got to win four even to just

kind of have a chance."
Sweeping the final four games is a tall
order for a team that hasn't won two in a
row since starting 2-0. The Dolphins
will try to get something going begin-
ning Sunday against the archrival Jets.
One bit of good news for Miami: The
game is on the road. The Dolphins are
5-1 in away games and a mystifying 1-
5 at home.
"It drives me crazy," Sparano said.
"Keeps me up a lot."
The latest egg laid at home came
Sunday against a mediocre Cleveland
team. Miami's offense sputtered; and
Chad Henne threw three interceptions,
raising anew doubts he's a long-term
solution at quarterback.
Even so, the Dolphins had plenty of
chances to win, including when a
Browns pass bounced off Carroll's
hands with nothing but the goal line in
front of him and less than two minutes
"We had an opportunity," teammate
Karlos Dansby said. "We let it slip
between our fingers."
Sparano said Carroll and the rest of
the defense otherwise played well, but
he was less forgiving of the offense.
Breakdowns were frequent, and Miami
squandered several chances at big
plays, including when Henne twice had
receivers open deep.
"We either overshot or undershot,"
Sparano said.

The bully problem

t ouRcoCUNTRY J)._1 J r-._ I ,

Dear Annie: Last year, my 16-year-old
daughter had a bout of depression and anx-
iety and didn't handle herself well. As a
result, she has been shunned by the friends
she's had since seventh grade.
"Lauren" has tried to make amends by
apologizing, but these girls want nothing to
do with her. Through therapy, Lauren real-
izes she is reaping what she has sown, but
several of the girls are just plain mean.
With my encouragement, Laureni
asked for a mediation session to
try to get one of the girls to back
down from the nasty comments.
Unfortunately, the rest of the
girls thought Lauren chose to 'e '
bring one of them down, so
now it's payback time. \ l
The bullying is exhausting
for Lauren to endure, and she
no longer wants to go to school.
Lauren is a beautiful, smart girl.
\What am I supposed to do? We are told
to speak up if a child is being bullied, but
what about the backlash? The school
feels its hands are tied. Lauren is back in
therapy so she can learn how to cope with
these mean girls.
Any thoughts? Frustrated Mom
Dear Mom: Even if Lauren deserved her
classmates' scorn, she does not deserve to
be bullied. The school is abdicating its
responsibility by shrugging its shoulders
and doing nothing. Encourage Lauren to

find other friends who will value the per-
.son she is now, and look into extracurricu-
lar activities that will allow her to meet'
kids outside of school. The U.S. Dept. of
Health and Human Services anti-bullying
we'bsite (stopbullyingnow.hrsa.gov) offers
suggestions. If your daughter continues to
struggle, however, and the school refuses
to help, it might be time to switch schools
so she can start fresh. Your daughter's well-
being comes first.
Dear Annie: "Bruce" and I have
known each other for six years,
although we only started dat-
<* ing a few months ago. We
n i plann to marry next year.
The problem is, he always
) --- has to contradict what I say
na.and makes it seem like I'm never
right. He also doesn't like my
S/\dog. He says if it starts yap-
ping at him, he's going to
kick it across the room.
I've tried talking to him,
about this, and sometimes I get so upset
that I cry. Why can't he connect his words
to my pain? Hurt in California
Dear California: You should not have to
burst into tears to get your fiance to stop
berating you. And any man who would
kick your dog across the room should be
avoided at all costs. Couples counseling
may help you work through this, but think
twice before marrying this man.

In yesterday's column I mentioned a book about
declaring in no-trump contracts. So you should find
today's deal easy! Against three no-trump, West leads
the heart jack. How would you plan the play? Would it
change your play if you were told by your opponents
that the opening lead showed zero or two higher honors
in hearts? I would have opened that North hand with one
no-trump, showing 15-17 points. The good five-card
suit and two 10s make the hand strong enough. Then
East would have led his fourth-highest spade and made
life easy for declarer.
East let the vulnerability persuade him to make a sim-
ple intervention, not a weak jump overcall. Your
response showed a balanced 13-15 points with spades
well held. West's lead was debatable, but it was best
You have seven top tricks: one heart, five diamonds
and one club. If the club finesse is working, as you
would expect given East's bid, you will be all right. The
heart finesse might succeed too.
If West could have the heart king, it seems natural to
take that finesse at trick one. Here, though, East wins
with the king and returns his second heart. Now you
must judge whether to drive out the spade ace. hoping
East does not have a third heart, or to take the club
finesse. If you know East has the heart king, you should
play dummy's ace at trick one, hoping to block the suit.

South Korea to strengthen its defenses


SEOUL, South Korea -
South Korea's president vowed
Tuesday to turn five islands
along the tense border with
North Korea into "military
fortresses" with jobs for perma-
nent civilian communities,
including those destroyed in a
North Korean artillery attack.
President Lee Myung-bak's
comments came as the chair-
man of the U.S. Joint Chiefs of
Staff flew to Seoul to give reas-
surances of the U.S. commit-
ment to the country's defense,
and as the top diplomats from
the U.S., Japan and South Korea
gathered in Washington in a
show of unity. The diplomats
urged the North to stop its
provocative and belligerent"
behavior and abandon its
nuclear arms program.
Tensions are still high on the
Korean peninsula following the
Nov. 23 North Korean shelling
of Yeonpyeong Island, a tiny
enclave of military bases and
fishing communities along the
Koreas' disputed western sea
border. The attack killed two
South Korean Marines and two
civilians, and reduced many
homes and shops to charred
Lee, in comments posted on
his presidential website, said he
wanted to "gradually push to
make (the five front-line Yellow
. Sea islands) military fortress-
es" and to create jobs so local

residents can continue to live
on all of the islands.
Most of the 1,300 civilians
on Yeonpyeong Island have
fled, with many now living in a
public bathhouse that has been
converted into a ref center in
the port city of Incheon.
Lee has been criticized for a
military response to the
shelling that was deemed too
slow and too weak. He has
ordered reinforcements for the
thousands of South Korean
troops stationed on Yeonpyeong
and the four other border
islands, as well as top-level
weaponry and upgraded rules
of engagement.
In Washington, Secretary of
State Hillary Clinton met
Monday with Japanese Foreign
Minister Seiji Maehara and
South Korean Foreign Minister
Kim Sung-hwan. The meeting
was meant to demonstrate a
serious response to recent
North Korean actions, includ-
ing the island shelling and
Pyongyang's announced expan-
sion of a uranium enrichment
capability that the United
States and others see as a defi-
ant and dangerous step.
North Korea wants to restart
international talks on receiving
aid in return for dismantling its
nuclear program, but Clinton
made clear that Washington,
Tokyo and Seoul view a
resumption of talks as tanta-
mount to rewarding North
Korea for behaving badly.
"They need to demonstrate

a seriousness of purpose in end-
ing their provocations and let
the world know they are now
ready to come to the table and
fulfill the commitments they
have already made," Clinton
said of the North. "All agree

and belligerent behavior jeop-

On Wednesday, the South
Korean chairman of the Joint
Chiefs of Staff, Gen. Han Min-

koo, will meet with his

Adm. Mike Mullen. South

a statement that the two would

and discuss ways to deter future

Gates see hard-won progress in Afghanistan


BASE JOYCE, Afghanistan.- As
the White House prepares its review
of the Afghanistan war and the likely
start of troop reductions next year,
senior defense leaders say they face a
critical challenge on the eastern
Afghan border where Taliban fight-
ers cross at will from Pakistan.
Gen. David Petraeus, the top
NATO commander in Afghanistan,
told reporters Tuesday that while
there has been some progress in the
east, more work must be done to
counter the Haqqani network, a stub-
born al-Qaida-linked Taliban insur-
gent group operating out of Pakistan.
According to a senior defense
official, Petraeus has already deliv-
ered his assessment of the war's
progress to the White House, which
is preparing a major review of its war
The official said Petraeus expects
the review to conclude that the tran-

sition of the country's security to the
Afghans will likely begin next year
as planned, but the pace is still uncer-
The review is expected to find that
the troop surge ordered by the presi-
dent a year ago has improved Afghan
security, the official said. The review
is also expected to make recommen-
dations on the size of the Afghan
security forces, the official said,
though no details were provided.
Standing Tuesday at the foot of the
craggy mountains just four kilome-
ters from Pakistan, Defense
'Secretary Robert Gates made his
own assessment of the eastern
region's security as he met with U.S.
commanders and troops.
The perils of war were brought
home as he met with members of a
platoon that lost six men late last
month. The soldiers were gunned
down by an Afghan border police
Maj. Gen. John Campbell, the top
U.S. commander in the eastern
region, said Kunar Province -

home to FOB Joyce -'is probably
the most kinetic province." Troops
dropped nine bombs on Monday
alone. The level of violence there, he
said, was so high that officers ques-
tioned whether it was safe enough to
bring Gates in.
Speaking to a crowd of 325 troops
packed around him, Gates said he
knows the fight is tough, but told the
soldiers they are making a difference.
"We are breaking the momentum
of the enemy and will eventually
reverse it," he said. But he added, "it
will be a while and we will suffer
tougher losses as we go."
The troops face a durable enemy
in the Haqqani network, an insurgent
faction blamed for some of the dead-
liest attacks on coalition forces in
Afghanistan. Campbell said the
group is well-financed and trained,
and moves easily over the border
with heavy-duty explosives.
Despite the tough foe, both Gates
and Campbell told a group of accom-.
panying reporters that the situation is
not grim, and that progress is evident.

The troops may not see the
changes day to day, Campbell said,
but statistics over the past several
months show violence levels drop-
ping around key government and
community buildings in key districts.
And incidents involving roadside
bombs fell by 40 percent.
Petraeus said there has been more
cooperation recently between U.S.,
Afghan and Pakistan forces. Soldiers
are working together at three border
stations, and a fourth will soon open.
U.S. officials have pressed
Pakistan to go after the insurgents,
particularly in strongholds in North
Waziristan. But so far the Pakistani
military has resisted, fueling specula-
tion that Islamabad provides protec-
tion for the Haqqanis, aimed at mak-
ing them useful allies after coalition
forces leave Afghanistan.
Campbell said his goal is to move
his forces into the more populated
Afghan areas, trying to stabilize the
region and win over the populace.
Gates also stopped at Forward
Operating Base Connolly, which is a

bit .southwest of Joyce, and in
Nangahar province.
The unannounced visit is the
10th of Gates' Pentagon tenure. It
comes close on the heels of President
Barack Obama's surprise trip to
Bagram last Friday. Obama's stay
was curtailed by bad weather that
kept him grounded at the base, and
he was unable to travel to Kabul to
meet with Afghan President Hamid
Gates' trip is touted as a holiday
visit to thank some 100,000 U.S.
troops serving in the war. But his
observations and meetings with
Afghan President Hamid Karzai as
well as top U.S. military and civilian
leaders will probably provide crucial
last-minute guidance for the review
of U.S. military policy in
Afghanistan due for completion next
The review ordered by the White
House will gauge whether Obama's
year-old 30,000-troop surge is work-
ing to tamp down the stubborn insur-
gency and train Afghans to take con-

Arab leaders concerned over Iran


Arab Emirates Leaders
of six U.S.-allied Gulf Arab
nations said Tuesday they
are watching Iran's nuclear
ambitions with "utmost
concern," but also sharp-
ened their appeals to the
West for.a greater voice in
the renewed talks with
The two-day summit in
Abu Dhabi was the first
gathering of the Gulf's
sheiks and monarchs since
leaked U.S. diplomatic
memos displayed their
behind-the-scenes fears of
Iran's nuclear aims, includ-
ing some Gulf leaders
encouraging American mil-
itary action.
The WikiLeaks disclo-
sures, however, also served
to highlight what's been
taking shape for years in
the Gulf: a growing confi-
dence to challenge and try
to influence the strategies
of their Western allies.
The meeting of the Gulf
Cooperation Council -
powerful Saudi Arabia and
its fast-growing neighbors
- appeared to cast off a bit
of its traditional caution
and adopt a harder tone.
The group warned Iran not
to interfere in Gulf Arab
affairs and called on it to
reject "force or the threat to
use it."
But the Gulf leaders are
also flexing their muscles
over the resumption of talks
between world powers and
Iran, which- wrapped up in
Geneva on Tuesday with
plans to meet early next
year in Turkey.
A senior Gulf delegate at
the Abu Dhabi meetings
said the leaders will press
harder for an ongoing
"exchange of information"
with the West and will no
longer be content for a side-

line role. The envoy spoke
on condition of anonymity
because he was not author-
ized to speak to media.
The message was clear-
ly spelled out last week by
the United Arab Emirate's
foreign minister, Sheik
Abdullah bin Zayed Al
Nahyan, at a security con-
ference in Bahrain.
"Why do Western coun-
tries think that the Iranian
issue concerns only them?"
he said. "Any solution with
Iran should come from the
region. The GCC states
should'have a role."
Among those attending
the Bahrain conference:
U.S. Secretary 'of State
Hillary Rodham Clinton
and Iran's foreign minister,
Manouchehr Mottaki.
Iran holds frequent mili-
tary drills along the Persian
Gulf primarily to assert
an ability to defend against
any U.S. or Israeli attack on
its nuclear sites but also
sending a message to Arab
neighbors on its southern
The U.S., which keeps
naval forces in the region,
has close military ties with

Saudi Arabia and other
nations on the Arab side of
the waterway and has sta-
tioned missile defense sys-
tems there.
"The Gulf nations aren't
asking to sit at the negotia-
tion table with Iran, but
they are asking to be con-
sulted every step of the way
by. their Western allies,"
said Mustafa Alani, an ana-
lyst at the Gulf Research
Center in Dubai. "Whatever
happens with Iran stares the
Gulf nations right in the
face. They want a say in
how it will play out."
The talks in Geneva
between Iran and six world
powers ended without any
significant shifts and
looked headed for another
tough session in Istanbul.
Iran's chief negotiator,
Saeed Jalili, said the key
international demand -
halting uranium enrichment
- will not be discussed at
the next round.
The West and others
worry that Iran's ability to
make nuclear fuel through
enrichment could lead to
weapons production in the
future. Iran insists it only

seeks the fuel for reactors
for power and research.
In Abu Dhabi, the Iranian
standoff was prominent in
the communique by the
GCC states Saudi
Arabia, Kuwait, Bahrain,
Qatar, Oman and the UAE.
The bloc was created in
1981 partly in response to
Iran's Islamic Revolution
two years earlier and the
fear that it would export its
militant brand of political
Islam to their shores.
The group said it was
following "developments
in the Iranian nuclear file
with the utmost concern."
It also stressed the "impor-
tance of commitment to
the principles of interna-
tional legitimacy and the
resolution of conflicts
through peaceful means."
But the Gulf leaders
also cast Iran as a power
that needs to be carefully
"It is important that Iran
is committed to the basis
of good neighborly rela-
tions, mutual respect and
noninterference in internal
affairs, resolving disputes
peacefully and not resort-
ing to force or making
threats to use it," said the
The statement did not
elaborate, but it was allud-
ing to concern among Gulf
Arab leaders about the
growing influence of
Shiite Iran in Iraq, a Shiite
majority nation which
neighbors GCC member
states Kuwait and Saudi
According to the U.S.
memos on WikiLeaks, sev-
eral Gulf Arab nations are
also concerned by Iran's
influence in Lebanon,
where its Shiite ally
Hezbollah has the nation's
strongest military force.
They also complain that
Iran's support to the mili-
tant Islamic Hamas group
in Gaza is hindering efforts

Israel claims

WikiLeaks distract

US from Mideast


defense minister claimed
Tuesday that the WikiLeaks
crisis was distracting
Washington from efforts to
restart Mideast peace talks.
But the U.S. denied those
efforts were on hold and
countered sharply that per-
haps Israel was distracted by
fighting a wildfire.
Hours later, however, U.S.
officials said they had aban-
doned efforts to reinstate a
freeze on new building in
Jewish settlements in the
West Bank, concluding that
was not the best way to restart
the talks.
Israeli-Palestinian peace
talks restarted in September
after a long hiatus but stum-
bled to a halt three weeks
later after a 10-month Israeli
moratorium on new construc-
tion in West Bank Jewish set-
tlements expired as Israel
said all along it would and
the government refused to
renew it.
Palestinians say they won't
resume talks unless Israel
halts all building in the West
Bank and east Jerusalem -

lands they want for part of
their future state.
The U.S. had been pressing
Israel to renew the moratori-
um in exchange for security
and diplomatic assurances.
It was not clear whether
any other formula was in the
offing to resume the talks.
Ehud Barak told a parlia-
mentary committee that talks
with the American side have
been postponed because
Washington was busy dealing
with the fallout from secret
U.S. diplomatic documents
released on the WikiLeaks
website, as well as with ten-
sions between North and
South Korea.
"For now the matter has
been stopped entirely,
because of the Americans'
lack of attention and concen-
tration," Barak said.
In Washington, State

CANCUN, Mexico--
U.N. climate talks moved
into their decisive week
Monday with the agenda
dominated by future cuts in
carbon emissions and keep-
ing countries honest about
their actions to control global
Government ministers
arrived in force to begin
applying political muscle to
negotiations that in the past
week have narrowed some
disputes, but which are likely
to leave the toughest deci-
sions for the final hours of the
193-nation conference on
Delegates were feeling
pressure to produce at least a
modest agreement from the
two-week U.N, meeting to
restore credibility to the talks
after the last summit in
Copenhagen failed to agree
on any binding actions to rein
in emissions of global-warm-
ing gases.
"We cannot leave Cancun
empty-handed," warned
Connie Hedegaard, the
European Union's top cli-
mate official.
The conference seeks deci-
sions on establishing a "green
fund" to help poorer nations
rein in greenhouse gases and
to adapt their economies and
infrastructure to a changing
climate; an agreement mak-
ing it easier for developing
nations to obtain patented
green technology from
advanced nations; and pin-
ning down more elements of
a system for compensating
developing countries for pro-
tecting their forests.
"I can see a workable result
that gets decisions across all
the major areas. I can't pre-
dict whether we're going to
get there," said U.S. special
envoy Todd Stem.
New negotiating docu-
ments put on the table oyer
the weekend were generally
well received, despite criti-
cisms of flaws and omissions.
"We have a basis to work
from this week," said
Hedegaard, adding that nego-
tiators need to nail down

ways to ensure that countries
meet their emissions pledges.
Actions by both industrial
and developing countries
must be monitored so that
"they deliver on their prom-
ises," she said.
Falling short of a legal
treaty at last year's summit,
President Barack Obama bro-
kered a political document
with the leaders of China,
India, Brazil and South
Africa, called' the
Copenhagen Accord, which
outlined important compro-
One breakthrough came
when China agreed to allow
other countries to review cli-
mate actions that received
international financing. At
Cancun, the Chinese went a
step further and said all their
operations, including fully
domestic actions, would be
open to international scrutiny.

But details about how this
would be done remained to
be settled.
Stem listed some of the
remaining issues: To whom
do countries report their
actions? What details need to
be reported? Will a panel of
experts review the data? Will
countries be able to ask ques-
Xie Zhenhua, China's top
climate official, said the criti-
cal issue was that measuring,
reporting and verification
respects national sovereignty
and involves no punishment
for missing obligations.
Adoption" of the
Copenhagen, Accord was
blocked by a handful of dissi-
dent nations, led by Bolivia
and Venezuela.
In subsequent months,
however, 140 countries
declared their endorsement of
the deal, and 85 of them

or at least limiting their
growth, by 2020.
Mexico's deputy foreign
minister, Juan Manuel
Gomez Robledo. said more
countries intend to add their
pledges to the list. And some
that already have submitted
pledges may take "additional
measures," he said.
"There has been a clear
message from some parties,
and that would certainly be
very good news," he told
The pledges in the
Copenhagen Accord are
purely voluntary, and are
insufficient to meet the goal
scientists have set to limit the
average global temperature to
2 degrees Celsius (3.8
Fahrenheit) above what it
was before the industrial age
The most troublesome
issue and one that could
still undermine even the lim-
ited ambition envisioned for
Cancun was whether
industrial countries would
agree to further emissions
cuts as spelled out in the 1997
Kyoto Protocol.
Under Kyoto, 37 nations
and the European Union
agreed to cut greenhouse
gases by a total of 5.2 percent
below 1990 levels by 2012.
Those countries are on target
to meet their obligations, but
some of them have balked
about accepting more
mandatory cuts after 2012.
India's environment min-
ister Jairam Ramesh said
developing countries had
three non-negotiable
demands: that developing
countries agree to post-2012
reduction targets, that emer-
gency funds begin flowing to
Africa and the poorest states
facing potential climate dis-
asters, and that Western tech-
nology quickly be extended
to help countries adapt to cli-
mate changes.
Christiana Figueres, the
U.N.'s top climate official,
said backstage efforts' were
under way to finesse the
Kyoto issue. "There is
already an active search for a
medium ground," she said.

Iran's chief negotiator,
Saed Jalili, also sought to
dampen expectations.
"I am telling you clear-
ly and openly that halting
uranium enrichment will
not be discussed at the
Istanbul meeting," he told
But the diplomats said
Jalili did not object when
the six powers, the
United States, Russia,
China, Britain, France
and Germany, brought up
concern over enrichment
during two days of talks
that ended at midday
Tuesday. The fact that the
Iranians did not dismiss
such international wor-

agree to a second round,

who asked for anonymity
because the information
was confidential.

were not a breakthrough
but a beginning was
achieved," German
