Man charged with attempted murder

Woman shot multiple times


A Jackson County man ,is being
charged with attempted murder for
allegedly shooting a woman multi-
ple times in Greenwood on Tuesday
afternoon, according to Major Don-
nie Branch of the Jackson County
Sheriff's Office.
Arthur Jenkins Jr., 54, is accused in

the incident. Branch said Jenkins al-
legedly drove to the residence where
victim Dollie Russ had been staying
and accused her of stealing money
from him. Their confrontation in the
back yard moved to the porch of the
dwelling, where she was shot.
Jenkins offered no resistance when
investigators arrived to find him
standing by an oak tree near the Os-
car Road residence where the shoot-

ing took place around 3:30 p.m.
Branch said Russ had called 911 to
report that she had been shot. She
was flown to an area hospital by a
medical helicopter.
Authorities said she was shot three
times once in the face, neck and
torso with a semi-automatic pis-
tol. Her condition was unknown as
of press time Tuesday.
Authorities say Jenkins showed
them where the weapon was stashed

Beer leads

police to


From staff reports
An abandoned four-pack of cold beer
helped Marianna police track down a
suspected prowler late Monday night,
a man who spent his 24th birthday in
jail as a result.
According to a Marianna Police De-
partment press release,
Julio Ernesto Lazaro-
Pulibo has admitted to
being the person on the
victim's porch around
10:41 p.m. Monday. The
victim had reported that
Lazaro-Pulibo she heard someone open
up'her clothes dryer on
the back porch, then "turn the door
knob and shake it as if to gain entry."
She said she yelled and chased the in-
truder away from her dwelling on Cale-
donia Street, then called authorities.
When police arrived, they found a bi-
cycle and the beer.
Police were first able to identify Laz-
aro-Pulibo as a suspect by tracking
down where the four Bud Light beers
had been purchased.
A review of video at the Mobile sta-
tion on the corner of Kelson Avenue
and Jefferson Street led police to the
suspect, who was "well-known by the
police supervisor on duty," according
to the release.
Lazaro-Pulibo, of 4930B Deering St.,
was charged with prowling and taken
to the Jackson County jail to await his
first appearance on the charge.
Police say the black Roadmaster bi-
cycle is believed to belong to Lazaro-
Pulibo, who turned 24 on Tuesday.

Maj. Eddie Johnson with the Florida Highway Patrol addresses the annual Hands Across the Border gathering of law enforcement
officers from Florida, Georgia and Alabama Tuesday at the Florida Welcome Center on U.S. 231.

Police launch holiday enforcement campaign

Meda General News Service

Dozens of law enforcement officers
from three states joined together Tues-
day as part of a holiday traffic safety
program specifically targeting im-
paired drivers.
About 50 officers from Georgia, Flori-
da and Alabama gathered at the Florida
Welcome Center to talk about the pro-
gram, in its 20t, year dubbed "Hands
Across the Border."
Alabama Highway Patrol Capt. Ricky
Peak said the enforcement campaign
primarily targets impaired drivers, but
law enforcement will also be on the
lookout for aggressive drivers, whichin-
cludes motorists following too closely,
driving too fast and weaving in and out
of traffic. But he said law enforcement
will also be looking for seat belt and
child safety seat restraint violators.
"Our message is simple if you
drive impaired you will be arrested,"
Peak said. "We want everybody to en-
joy the weekend, but do not get on the
highways and put other people's lives
at risk."
Peak said troopers will use saturation
patrols during the enforcement cam-
paign, which includes putting several
officers and their vehicles close togeth-
er on one stretch of highway.
Peak said state troopers will also
use what's referred to as the BAT mo-
bile during traffic checkpoints across
the region. The Breath Alcohol Testing
(BAT) vehicle, which is a large cargo
style truck, can also help troopers keep
from having to take a suspect to the jail
after each arrest. The truck can hold up
to 10 inmates.
"We try to focus on heavy travel
times," Peak said. "It's Labor Day, and

and Maj. Eddie Johnson with the Florida Highway Patrol before the annual Hands Across
the Border ceremony on Tuesday at the U.S. 231 Welcome Center near Campbellton.

people are trying to get in one last trip
to the beach."
Peak said funds through Alabama
Department Economic and Commu-
nity Affairs (ADECA) will help the state
assign more troopers to work the high-
ways, along with agents with the Ala-
bama Bureau of Investigation (ABI).
William Whatley Jr., a spokesperson
with ADECA, said the program is also
part of a national enforcement cam-
paign called "Drive Sober or Get Pulled
Over," which started on Aug. 19 and
runs through the Labor Day holiday.
Whatley said ADECA actually distrib-
utes federal funds from the National
Highway Transportation Safety Ad-
ministration to help provide Alabama

agencies with overtime money to work
during the heavily traveled holiday
According to NHTSA, alcohol im-
paired crashes over the legal limit of .08
blood alcohol content accounted for 32
percent of all motor vehicle fatalities in
2009, an average of one fatality every
48 minutes.
"Impaired driving is not an accident,"
Whatley said. "It's an epidemic of care-
less disregard for human life."
According to a statement from the
Florida Department of Public Safety,
alcohol was involved in more than
17,748 crashes, 794 fatalities and 12,168

Guest Opinion

Hurricane Irene

makes the case

for government
By Scripps Howard News Service
The small-government crowd was con-
spicuously quiet in the run-up to Hurricane
Irene, shelving its derision of big govern-
ment while a large and slow-moving storm put at
least 50 million Americans at risk.
Those who believe big government can do no
right kept silent when big government swung into
action. The much-derided Federal Emergency
Management Agency prepositioned 18 disaster-
response teams on the East Coast and stockpiled
food, water and communications equipment.
The Coast Guard moved more than 20 rescue
helicopters and reconnaissance planes into posi-
tion. The Pentagon set aside 20 more helicopters.
And about 100,000 National Guard troops were
put on standby.
The White House, in advance, prepared federal
emergency declarations for eight states so that
relief and rebuilding funds could be rushed to
those areas.
In a sweeping exercise of government power,
states ordered mandatory mass evacuations of
coastal communities and low-lying areas. On Sat-
urday, New York City shut down its entire public
transportation system.
The nation hung on the words of the National
Hurricane Center, an arm of the U.S. Department
of Commerce that budget-cutting Republicans
once proposed to kill.
In the end, Irene wasn't as powerful as pre-
dicted, though it caused at least 35 fatalities and
wrecked tens of thousands of homes.
By Monday, the small-government crowd had
begun to recover some of its confidence. The con-
servative Drudge website called it "Category Feh,"
a term of dismissive disinterest not a senti-
ment likely shared by the state of Vermont, which
lost roads and bridges to the Irene-caused worst
flooding in a century.
I Drudge also headlined "Nat'l Hurricane Center
Gets Defensive." The link led to an Associated
Press story in which the center was anything but.

No excuse for hungry children

Scripps Howard News Service

My mother couldn't stand
to see a hungry child or
one inadequately dressed
for the weather. On occasion when
she had need to drive me or one of
my siblings to school because we
had missed the bus, we would pass
children obviously suffering from
the afflictions of poverty.
"Oh my," she would say, her eyes
welling up. She would immediately
stop the car to ask the child's name
if I didn't recognize him or her. With
that information she would find
some way to make sure they had a
warm coat and other clothing and a
basket of food. We certainly weren't
wealthy but we were better off
than many in those days when the
aftershocks of the Depression were
still being felt.
When my father died, a letter to
the editor of his local newspaper
told how the writer and his sister
had been sitting disconsolate on
the stoop of their small house just
before Christmas in the mid-1930s.
They were forlorn and hungry real-
izing that there would be no holi-
day cheer. Then my father drove
up, hopped out with a basket full
of food and clothes and presents.
My father never spoke of it but the
author of the letter never forgot it
more than 40 years later.
There weren't many government
safety nets for unfortunate Ameri-
cans in those days. People through
their churches and social organi-
zations and just plain individuals
picked up the slack where they

could. That is still true, of course.
But the urbanization of America
has contributed to the still startling
number of children in what the
experts call "food insecure house-
holds"- homes where boys and
girls aren't certain whether they will
have anything to eat that day or the
next or even the next.
One of the most tragic, inexcus-
able statistics I have seen in years
has nothing to do with the politi-
cal shenanigans of this town, the
inability of the Congress to stop our
financial bleeding or the president's
slipping approval rating as the
economy deteriorates. It is simply
that the District of Columbia leads
the nation in the percentage of chil-
dren who aren't receiving enough
to eat at home.
A list of states and the federal
enclave compiled by the Con Agra
Foods Foundation and reprinted
recently in The New York Times
reveals that in the District 32.3 per-
cent or 36,870 boys and girls face
food deprivation.
The District is followed closely
by Oregon with 29.? percent or
252,510 children and Arizona and
Arkansas with 28.8 percent and 28.6
percent respectively. Texas, which
Gov. Rick Perry in his presidential
campaign cites as a model of eco-
nomic success, has 28.2 percent or
a whopping 1.87 million of its kids
in the hungry category.
Other states in the top 10 per-
centage wise are Georgia, Missis-
sippi, Nevada, South Carolina and
Florida. California is ranked 11th
with a percentage of 27.3 or 2.58
million, to lead all 51 venues in the

actual numbers.
Altogether, there are a startling
17.1 million youngsters or one
quarter of the nation's children who
aren't being properly fed, who often
go to bed hungry and trudge off in
the morning stomachs growling
until they get to school where they
receive some sustenance if some
politician hasn't decided feed-
ing them costs too much. In the
District the number of students eli-
gible for free or reduced cost food
at school is a startling 76 percent.
A large number, but by no means
all, of these children nationwide
live in the inner cities of our urban
sprawl -African and Hispanic
Americans and other ethnic groups.
There are also a large number of
white children suffering, particu-
larly in the rural South and Appa-
lachia. Hunger obviously makes no
ethnic distinction.
With joblessness stubbornly
resisting improvement, the num-
bers are growing steadily and the
pressures being put on the public
school systems and other commu-
nity services are accelerating at the
same rate.
For the District of Columbia to
lead the nation in hungry kids in
the shadow of the Capitol and the
White House is disgraceful, an un-
forgivable national tragedy. If those
who run this government so badly
these days do nothing else, they
should end this. My mother would
demand it if she were alive.

Fall of Gadhafi shows allies are vital

Scripps Howard News Service

In Libya, spontaneous domestic
insurrection appears to have
won. Months of brutal fight-
ing seems now to be successful
in overthrowing four decades of
brutal rule by Dictator Moammar
Gadhafi. This is one element of the
tremendous turmoil now sweeping
the Middle East and North Africa,
as people en masse demand basic
human rights and representation.
United Nations Security Council
Resolution 1973 authorizes military
force to protect Libyan civilians.
The U.S., working primarily with
allies Britain and France, has been
using air power to control Libya's
skies and destroy Gadhafi's forces,
coordinating with rebel troops do-
ing the ground fighting.
History as well as contemporary
incentives inform the alliance
against Gadhafi. Europe, especially
France, is far more dependent than
the United States on Libya oil. Ger-
man reluctance to engage directly
and abstention in UN voting is
understandable given their past
history in North Africa.
President Barack Obama, Sec-
retary of State Hillary Clinton,
Defense Secretary Robert Gates
and successor Leon Panetta and
other United States leaders rightly
emphasize that regime change in
Libya essentially is up to the Libyan
people. The U.S. in any case has no

ground forces to spare.
Gadhafi's tyrannical rule endured
more than four decades, and has
cost the blood of Americans as
well as Libyans and other nations'
people. His terrorism includes
the notorious bombing of PanAm
Flight 103 over Lockerbie Scotland
in December 1988 that killed 270.
For years, he recruited mercenar-
ies to provide military and terrorist
training, including renegade U.S.
special operations pros. The Libyan
leader also developed weapons of
mass destruction.
The U.S. and its allies have crucial
technological advantages. Since
the last stages of the Vietnam War,
precision guided munitions have
allowed unprecedented weapons
accuracy. Today, our high-flying ad-
vanced military aircraft are virtually
invulnerable to ground fire.
This in turn leads into dangerous
space, including American over-
emphasis on air power as decisive.
During the early phases of the
Vietnam War, American civilian
as well as Air Force decision-mak-
ers exaggerated the potency of air
power. Some believe falsely that
air attacks alone brought stability
to the Balkans in the 1990s. In fact,
ground forces are crucial.
For the U.S. to have ignored
the UN concerning the chal-
lenge of Libya's revolution would
have weakened future as well as
current international coopera-
tion. Failure to prevent genocide

elsewhere, notably in Rwanda in
the 1990s, helped spur the current
For Americans, Libya remains a
special case. Edwin P. Wilson, an,
embittered American intelligence
pro, went to work for terrorist state
Libya in the 1970s. Wilson recruited
highly trained military veterans,
including U.S. Army Green Berets,
for Gadhafi's regime.
Killings in Colorado as well as
Germany were blamed on Wilson's
lethal crew. Arms deals included
shipping 20 tons of C-4 plastic
explosives to Libya in chartered
planes. Wilson became a U.S. law
enforcement priority. Libya refused
to extradite him, but American
operatives set up an apparently
lucrative deal and lured him to the
Caribbean, where he was arrested.
Wilson spent almost three de-
cades in prison, but now lives freely
in Seattle. A federal judge ruled
the CIA and Department of Justice
acted improperly, including lying to
the court, and overturned his con-
viction and he was freed in 2004.
By definition, the rule of law puts
the same obligations on all par-
ties, innocent and guilty, just and
unjust. The goal is great and the
process at times painful.
Supporting the UN and associ-
ated bodies is central to this vital

Holes remain in flight school scrutiny

The Associated Press

Ten years after the 9/11 at-
tacks, government screen-
ing has made it harder for
foreign students to enroll
in civilian flight schools as
a handful of the hijackers
did, banking on America
being inviting and a place
to learn quickly.
But the most rigorous
checks don't apply to all
students and instructors,
so schools and trainers
have to be especially alert
to weed out would-be
"Prior to 9 /11, Iwouldn't
have had the phone num-
ber and name of my local
FBI agent posted on my
wall. I do," said Patrick
Murphy, director of train-
ing at Sunrise Aviation in
Ormond Beach, Fla., near
Daytona Beach.
Hundreds of U.S. flight
schools fiercely compete
for students. In Florida,
some still pitch the good
weather as a way for stu-
dents to fly more often
and finish programs faster.
The 9/11 hijackers sought
out U.S. schools partly be-
cause they were seen as
requiring shorter training
Florida schools have
reason to be careful: Three
of the 9/11 hijackers were
simulating flights in large
jets within six months of
arriving for training in
Venice, Fla., along the Gulf
Coast. Mohamed Atta, the
operational leader of the
hijackings, and Marwan al
Shehhi enrolled in an ac-
celerated pilot program at
Huffman Aviation, while
Ziad Jarrah entered a pri-
vate pilot program nearby.
The terrorists obtained
licenses and certifications
despite rowdy behavior
and poor performance at
The U.S. commission

tacks said in its report that

In this photo taken Aug. 24, students attend class as instructor Demetriou Stelios (back
center) teaches at the Sunrise Aviation flight school in Ormond Beach.

Atta and Shehhi quickly
took solo flights and
passed a private pilot air-
man test. The two later en-
rolled at another school,
where an instructor said
the two were rude and ag-
gressive, and sometimes
even fought to take over
the controls during train-
ing flights. They failed an
instruments rating exam.
Undeterred, they returned
to Huffman. Meanwhile,
Jarrah received a sin-
gle-engine private pilot
Hani Hanjour obtained
his private pilot license af-
ter about three months of
training in Arizona. Sev-
eral more months of train-
ing yielded a commercial
pilot certificate, issued
by the Federal Aviation
Administration. In early
2001, -he started training
on a Boeing 737 simula-
tor. An instructor found
his work substandard
and advised him to quit,
but he continued and fin-
ished the training just 5'A
months before the attacks,
the commission said.
Today, itwould be tough-
er for the four men to en-
ter U.S. flight schools.
There is a stricter visa
process for foreign stu-

dents seeking flight
training in the U.S. They
cannot start until the
Transportation Secuiity
Administration, created
after Sept. 11 to protect
U.S. air travel, runs a fin-
gerprint-based criminal
background check with
the FBI's help and runs
their names against ter-
rorist watch lists. TSA in-
spectors visit FAA-certi-
fied flight schools at least
once a year to make sure
students have proper doc-
umentation verifying their
identities arid haven't
overstayed their visas.
Plus, TSA shares intelli-
gence with other agencies
and has other layers of se-
curity to catch people be-
fore they can do harm even
if they slipped through the
cracks and were able to get
flight training in the U.S.
The qtepped-up mea-
sures involving flight
schools are not foolproof
or uniform, however.
There are numerous
flight instructors with ac-
cess to planes and simu-
lators who don't all get an
annual TSA visit, and are
subject only to random
TSA inspections if they
train only U.S. citizens.
The TSA has access to a

database of all student
pilots that is maintained
by the FAA. But TSA said
it only runs the names
of U.S.-citizen students
against watch lists, and
not necessarily before
those students can start
their programs.
TSA said-the fingerprint-
ing and criminal back-
ground checks done on
foreign students before
they can enter U.S. flight
schools are not done on
U.S. citizens. TransPac Avi-
ation Academy in Phoenix
tells domestic applicants
they need proof of citizen-
ship, a high school diplo-
ma or college transcripts,
a medical card, a driver's
license and any pilot li-
censes already held.
Andre Maye, vice presi-
dent of administration
at Phoenix East Aviation
in Daytona Beach, pays
attention to red flags in-
cluding inconsistencies,
in addresses applicants
provide and discrepancies
on financial statements.
He monitors the size of
wire transfers from stu-
dents when they pay for
their tuition, which can
total $46,000 or more, and
looks for consistency in
the transactions.

Scott's new neighborhood more like average Floridian

The Associated Press

ORLANDO -When Gov.
Rick Scott moved into the
Governor's Mansion, he
left one of the wealthiest
parts of the state. His new
neighbors are middle-
class, ethnically diverse
and overall more like the
people he now represents.
That's not to say that
the governor's new Tal-
lahassee digs are shabby.
The 15,000-square-foot,
30-room Governor's Man-
sion has a swimming pool,
cabana, exercise room,
tennis courts and a green-
house. The Greek Revival
mansion was designed in
the mid-1950s and is list-
ed in the National Register
of Historic Places.
But it's hard to compete
on the opulence scale
when looking at his old
Naples neighborhood.
There Scott owns a 1.3-
acre residence, purchased
in 2003 for $11.5 million.
His 3,400-square-foot
mansion abuts the Gulf of
Mexico and has a swim-
ming pool with a view.
To the north is a red-tiled
mansion valued at $29
million. To the south is an
8,200-square foot man-
sion that is for sale for
$2.1.9 million. Other mul-

timillion-dollar mansions
stretch up and down his
street, Gordon Drive.
The neighborhood is
third-wealthiest in Florida
out of 3,155 tracts ana-
lyzed by the Census. Tracts
are subdivisions within
a county, with between
2,500 to 8,000 people. The
new neighborhood in Tal-
lahassee is listed as the
1,873rd richest, according
to Census data released
earlier this month.
The Governor's Man-
sion's neighbors are pe-
destrian by comparison.
They include a tire store,
a computer technician
business, a property man-
agement business, a gun-
and-jewelry store and an
Episcopal church. The
Governor's Mansion bor-
ders on a historically black
neighborhood known as
Frenchtown and is just
a few blocks away from
Tallahassee's main north-
south artery.
His Naples neighbor-
hood is almost 98 percent
white. The 1,730 residents
in the Census tract include
a single black resident, 21
Asians and 33 Hispanics.
The Tallahassee neighbor-
hood is 73 percent white,
20 percent black, almost 6
percent Hispanic and 2.5

borhood had an income in
the previous year that was
below, the poverty line.
That was true for about 24

are about twice as old as

Obama looks to spur private sector hiring

The Associated Press

WASHINGTON Limited -in
his ability to create jobs through
direct spending, President
Barack Obama is considering
measures to encourage the pri-
vate sector to free up its cash re-
serves and hire more workers to
ease the nation's unemployment
As Obama prepares to unveil
a new jobs agenda next week,
his aides are reviewing options
that would provide tax incen-
tives to employers who expand
their payrolls. That approach is
a more indirect effort to spur the
economy and relies less on gov-
ernment intervention and mas-
sive public works projects.
Among the proposals circulat-
ing in the White House is a $33
billion tax credit that Obama first
proposed early last year but that
Congress whittled into a smaller
one-year package.
Under one version of the plan,
employers would receive a tax
credit of up to $5,000, subtracted

from their share of federal pay-
roll taxes, for every net new hire.
White House officials caution
that the overall jobs plan is still
. subject to change.
The tax credit, however, is a
relatively untested idea. Con-
gress passed a version in March
2010, known as the HIRE Act,
which provided $13 billion in
tax credits to qualified employ-
ers who hired new workers. But
there is no government data to
track its success.
"The HIRE Act was very small,"
said Mark Zandi, chief econo-
mist at Moody's Analytics and an
occasional adviser to Democrats
and Republicans. "It really didn't
add to payrolls."
"It would have to be bigger," he
added. "Something more along
the lines that the Obama admin-
istration proposed in 2010."
While promising a major jobs
package, Obama is hamstrung
by budget cuts and a tight debt
ceiling that he had a hand in ne-
gotiating. As a result, economists
predict that while the president's

initiatives could eliminate some
drag on the economy and main-
tain the status quo, they won't
be enough to propel it to new
Obama's jobs package is de-
signed to supplement other pro-
posals already in the pipeline,
including free trade agreements
with South Korea, Colombia and
Panama and the renewal of a
highway construction bill.
OnWednesday, Obamawill call
on Congress to pass federal high-
way legislation before the cur-
rent law expires Sept. 30. Seeking
to blunt congressional partisan-
ship, Obama will be joined by
the leaders of two occasion-
ally warring factions AFL-CIO
President Richard Trumka and
David Chavern, chief operating
officer of the U.S. Chamber of
At a minimum, the president's
jobs plan will call on Congress to
extend current payroll tax cuts
and jobless benefits, spend mon-
ey for new construction projects
and offer incentives to business-

es to hire more workers.
"We don't have magic bullets,
but what we do have, I think, is
the capacity to do some things
right now that would make a big
difference," Obama said Tuesday
in an interview with radio talk
show host Tom Joyner.
The labor movement is wary.
"This is a moment that working
people and quite frankly history
will judge President Obama on
his presidency," AFL-CIO presi-
dent Richard Trumka said last
week. "Will he commit all his en-
ergy and focus on bold solutions
on the job crisis or will he con-
tinue to work with the tea party
to offer cuts to middle class pro-
grams like Social Security all the
while pretending that the deficit
is where our economic problems
really lie."
Obama faces a divided Con-
gress, where Republicans, de-
manding fiscal austerity, reject
the notion that short-term in-
fusions of taxpayer money into
the economy can prod a slug-
gish recovery. Moreover, a large

package even half the size of the
$825 billion stimulus Congress
approved in 2009 would move
the government closer to its new
debt ceiling before the Novem-
ber 2012 election, something
Obama is determined to avoid.
The president is certain to call
for extending a one-year payroll
tax cut for workers and unem-
ployment benefits that expire in
January, at a combined cost of
about $175 billion.
"That not only helps them
keep their head above water, but
it also circulates that money in
the economy and makes sure
that businesses have custom-
ers," Obama said. *
Obama also has promoted
the creation of an "infrastruc-
ture bank," a fund that would
be seeded by the government
but fed by private investment to
pay for major road, bridge and
other public construction. Even
advocates of the plan say that
proposal probably would not be

Arizona man describes shears impaling eye socket

The Associated Press

PHOENIX An 86-year-old
Arizona man whose eye socket
was impaled with a pair of prun-
ing shears said Tuesday he expe-
rienced excruciating pain during
the ordeal and feels lucky to be
Leroy Luetscher, a Wisconsin
native who now lives in Green
Valley in southern Arizona, said
he had just finished trimming
plants in his backyard on July 30
when he lost his balance and fell
on the pruning shears.
The tool went into his right eye
socket and down into his neck,
resting against the carotid artery.
Half the shears were left in his
head pushing up against his eye,
while the other half was sticking
Luetscher said he put his hand
to his face and realized the shears
had gone into his eye. .
"I didn't know if my eyeball was
still there or what," he said. "I

never had pain like that in all my
Luetscher, whose face was
gushing blood, was able to walk
to the laundry room of his house
and beckon his longtime live-in
girlfriend, Arpy Williams, who
called 911.
An ambulance rushed him to
University Medical Center in Tuc-
son, where a team of surgeons
immediately took scans of his
brain and came up with a plan to
treat him.
"It was a bit overwhelming,"
said Dr. Lynn Polonski, one of
Luetscher's surgeons. "It was
wedged in there so tightly, you
could not move it. It was part of
his face."
Polonski said the team made
incisions underneath his right
upper lip and his sinus wall, al-
lowing them to loosen the handle
of the pruning shears with their
fingers. "Once we were able to
loosen it up, it went fairly easily,"
he said.

University Medical Center in Tucson,
a CT scan shows a pair of pruning
shears embedded in the head of an
86-year-old Green Valley, Ariz., man

Doctors also rebuilt Luetscher's
orbital floor with a titanium plate
and put him on antibiotics for 20
days to stave off an infection that
could have proved fatal.

Most US Muslims feel targeted by terror policies

The Associated Press

half of Muslim Americans in a
new poll say government anti-
terrorism policies single them
out for increased surveillance,
and monitoring, and many report
increased cases of name-calling,
threats and harassment by airport
security, law enforcement officers
and others.
Still, most Muslim Americans
say they are satisfied with the way
things are going in the U.S. and
rate their communities highly as
places to live.
The survey by the Pew Research
Center, one of the most exhaus-
tive ever of the country's Muslims,
finds no signs of rising alienation
or anger among Muslim-Ameri-
cans despite recent U.S. govern-
ment concerns about homegrown
Islamic terrorism and controversy
over the building of mosques.
"This confirms what we've said
all along: American Muslims are
well integrated and happy, but
with a kind of lingering sense of
being besieged by growing anti-
Muslim sentiment in our society,"
said Ibrahim Hooper, spokesman

for the Council on American-Is-
lamic Relations, a Washington,
D.C.-based Muslim civil rights
"People contact us every day
about concerns they've had, par-
ticularly with law enforcement
authorities in this post-9/11 era,"
he said.
Muslim extremists hijacked
four passenger planes on Sept.
11, 2001, crashing them into the
World Trade Center, the Pentagon
and a field in Shanksville, Pa.
In all, 52 percent of Muslim
Americans surveyed said their
group is singled out by govern-
ment for terrorist surveillance.
Almost as many 43 percent
- reported they had personally
experienced harassment in the
past year, according to the poll re-
leased Tuesday.
That 43 percent share of people
reporting harassment is up from
40 percent in 2007, the first time
Pew polled Muslim Americans.
Asked to identify in what ways
they felt bias, about 28 percent
said they had been treated or
viewed with suspicion by people,
while 22 percent said they were
called offensive names. About 21

percent said they were singled
out by airport security because
they were Muslim, while another
13 percent said they were target-
ed by other law enforcement offi-
cials. Roughly 6 percent said they
had been physically threatened
or attacked.
On the other hand, the share of
Muslim Americans who view U.S.
anti-terror policies as "sincere"
efforts to reduce international
terrorism now surpasses those
who view them as insincere 43
percent to 41 percent. Four years
ago, during the presidency of
George W. Bush, far more viewed
U.S. anti-terrorism efforts as in-
sincere than sincere 55 percent
to 26 percent.
The vast majority of Muslim
Americans 79 percent rate
their communities as either "ex-
cellent" or "good" places to live,
even among many who reported
an act of vandalism against a
mosque or a controversy over the
building of an Islamic center in
their neighborhoods.
They also are now more likely
to say they are satisfied with the
current direction of the country
- 56 percent, up from 38 percent

in 2007. That is in contrast to the
general U.S. public, whose satis-
faction has dropped from 32 per-
cent to 23 percent.
Andrew Kohut, Pew president,
said in an interview that Muslim
Americans' overall level of satis-
faction was striking.
"I was concerned about a big-
ger sense of alienation, but there
was not," Kohut said, contrasting
the U.S. to many places in Europe
where Muslims have become
more separatist. "You don't see
any indication of brewing nega-
tivity. When you look at their atti-
tudes, these are still middle-class,
mainstream people who want to
be loyal to America."
Regarding possible terror risks,
about 21 percent of Muslim
Americans say there is "a great
deal" or "a fair amount" of sup-
port for extremism in their com-
munities, according to the Pew
survey. About 81 percent of Mus-
lim Americans separately say sui-
cide bombings and other forms
of violence against civilians are
never justified in order to defend
Islam, and growing numbers also
express an unfavorable view of al-
Qaida 81 percent.

Congress battles

over disaster aid

litical battle between the
tea party-driven House
and the Democratic-con-

The Federal Emergency
Management Agency has
less than $800 million in its

over whether to cut spend-
ing elsewhere in the federal
budget to pay for tornado
and hurricane aid seems
likely to delay legislation to
provide the billions of dol-
lars needed to replenish
FEMA's disaster aid in the
upcoming budget year.
House Majority Leader
Eric Cantor, R-Va., said the
House will require offset-
ting spending cuts. Irene
caused significant damage
in Virginia, and Cantor's
own district sustained
damage from last week's
Key Senate Democrats
said they'll oppose the idea
of offsetting cuts when a
bill funding FEMA gets un-
der way in the Senate.
Of $130 billion provided
in FEMA disaster funds
over the past two decades,
some $110 billion has been
provided as emergency
funding in addition to the
annual budget.
Sen. Dick Durbin, D-Ill.,
the Senate's No. 2 Demo-
crat, said Tuesdaythe num-

ber and cost of disasters
have grown dramatically
over the past few years and
that it's unrealistic to re-
quire offsetting spending
cuts. Durbin presided over
a recent hearing on disas-
ter costs.
"If (Cantor) believes that
we can nip and tuck at the
rest of the federal budget
and somehow take care of
disasters, he's totally out of
touch with reality," Durbin

she will take advantage of
a little-noticed provision
in the recently passed debt
limit and budget deal that
permits Congress to pass
several billion dollars in
additional FEMA disaster
aid without budget cuts
elsewhere. The provision
in the new law would allow
at least $6 billion in disas-
ter aid to be added to the
budget for the fiscal year
starting Oct. 1.
The shortfalls in FEMA's
disaster aid account have
been obvious to lawmakers
on Capitol Hill for months,
but the White House has
opted against asking for
more money, riling many

Texas drought

could threaten

endangered species

The Associated Press

LUBBOCK, Texas Fed-
eral officials are readying
plans to evacuate a small
number of endangered
species in Texas as a severe
drought lowers water levels
,and threatens the survival
of rare wildlife in the state's
huge ecosystem.
Months with almost no
rain have caused water
levels to drop by half or
more in many rivers, lakes
and other bodies of water,
including springs in the
central Texas Hill Country
that are the only remain-
ing habitat for populations
of small fish, amphib-
ians and other creatures.
If the water continues to
drop sharply, U.S. Fish
and Wildlife Service offi-
cials are preparing to net
up large samples from the
springs to take to a hatch-
ery for preservation.
Such evacuations have
been rare in the past, with
one ordered in 2000 to
rescue several species of
mussels in Georgia. But
such emergency measures
could become more fre-
quent if the drought here
continues for months or
years, as many forecasters
predict. Texas is home to
86 endangered and threat-
ened species.
"We're definitely con-
cerned," Fish and Wild-
life Service biologist Tom
Brandt said. "I think we
have moved to another

step in making sure every-
thing is ready. We're in a
planning stage right now."
The evacuations would
begin if water levels in two
declining springs drop by
more than another 50 per-
cent, after similar reduc-
tions in recent months.
Only 9.6 inches of rain
has fallen on average
across Texas this year, a
little more than half the
normal amount. Fish are
dying, in lakes and rivers
from lack of water and low
oxygen levels. Growth of
vegetation for animal hab-
itat is down dramatically.
"Texas flora and fauna
are adapted to the harsh,
extreme conditions.
However, this particular
drought is testing the lim-
its of native populations,"
said Cindy Loeffler, a wa-
ter resource expert with
Texas Parks and Wildlife
The Comal and San Mar-
cos springs are the largest
in Texas.
The springs contain the
only, remaining popula-
tions of two small fish, the
fountain darter and the San
Marcos gambusia; the Tex-
as blind salamander; the
San Marcos salamander;
the Comal Springs Riffle
beetle, the Comal Springs
Dryopid beetle and the
Peck's cave amphipod, an
invertebrate. The San Mar-
cos gambusia hasn't been
seen since the 1980s and
could already be extinct.

holds off


Match goes five grueling sets


The Graceville Lady Tigers nearly pulled off a
once-unthinkable upset Monday night at. Mari-
anna High School before ultimately falling to the
Marianna Lady Bulldogs in five sets.
Marianna, which had previously not dropped a
set to the upstart Lady Tigers in any prior meet-
ings, won the first set with little trouble, 25-15, be-
fore finding some trouble in the second.
Graceville evened the match with a 25-20 sec-
ond-set win, but the Lady Bulldogs responded by
taking the third set, 25-20.
But just as soon as it appeared that order had
been restored, the Lady Tigers came right back
with a 25-22 win, in the fourth to force a fifth and
final set.

haps taken aback by how
well the Lady Tigers played
compared to their previous

"We were real surprised.
Graceville has really turned
it on. They're getting it to-
gether," the coach said.
"They've got some good
kids, some good athletes,
and some tall kids. They
played well, and they were
hungry to win. I think we
kind of underestimated
their ability, but hats off
to GHS because they re-
ally stepped it up. They
were real competitive, and
they'll continue to get bet-
ter and better."
Still, the coach said she
needs to see more from
her team throughout the
rest of this season.
"We were on our heels a
lot, just sitting back, and
we didn't communicate
as well as I would want,"
Christopher said. "I didn't
see a lot of leadership like
I want. You'd like to see
someone blossom and
take control out there, but
it didn't happen. It will,
though. It just takes time.
"But this was a good eye-
opener for us. It caught us
off guard."
Graceville was led in kills
by Wynterra Pittman with
13, with Taylor McDaniel
adding 10 and Tiara Sorey
Sorey led the team with
seven service aces while
McDaniel added four.

Stout Dolphins D looking

for more takeaways

The Associated Press

DAVIE The training
camp drill required the
Miami Dolphins' defensive
backs to sprint downfield,
cut sharply and look back
for a pass tossed their way.
Many throws were off the
mark, and players repeat-
edly reached out to gather
them in, sometimes mak-
ing acrobatic grabs.
It turns out Miami's DBs
really can catch the ball. .
There were doubts last
year, when the Dolphins
likely led the world in
potential interceptions
Coach Tony Sparano
counted at least two dozen
such bobbles, making it
easy to wonder: What if
Dolphins defenders had
hung onto, say, half of
those passes?
"That would make a lot

of difference," cornerback
Vontae Davis said.
"We would be in the
end zone celebrating the

finished 7-9, and for the
eighth time in the past
nine seasons, they were

Miami's defense ranked
sixth in the NFL in yards al-
lowed lastyear, and the unit
returns mostly intact, with
improved depth and more
potential playmakers.
The Dolphins totaled 19
takeaways last year, one
above the NFL low. They
tied for third-worst with
eight opposing fumble
recoveries, and tied for
fourth-worst with 11 in-
terceptions just three
more than Baltimore's Ed

Trent won't play," the
coach said of his starter.
"We still haven't heard
anything on it, but we're
practicing right now as-
suming that he won't
be there. We're working

If McDaniel can't play,
Dowling said that the Pi-
rates would have to alter
their offensive approach
"With Darius, we'll
simplify the playbook a
little. We had put a few
tweaks for them with
Trent there, so we'll
probably get rid of some
of that and go back to
our basic five or six
plays. Hopefully, we'll be
good enough up front to
make the plays we need
to make."
Dowling said that Wil-
liams may give Sneads a
more dynamic running
threat in the backfield,
but that he hopes his
QB will have to do very
little running in this


After an impressive
showing in their pre-
season debut, the Mari-
anna Bulldogs junior var-
sity football team will try
to replicate that perfor-
mance in its regular sea-
-son debut on Thursday
night in Bristol against
Liberty County.
The Bulldogs looked
strong in their jamboree
performance against West
Florida Tech in which
they played the entire first
quarter and part of the
second, winning the first
6-0, and combing with the
varsity reserves to take a
26-0 halftime lead.

"It's still up in the air, but there's a good
chance Trent won't play. We still haven't heard
anything on it, but we're practicing right now
assuming that he won'tbe there. "
Don Dowling,
Sneads coach

"When stuff breaks
down, (Williams) may
be able to make a play
with his feet, but we're
hoping we can just line
up and have the offen-
sive line take this game
over," the coach said.
"Hopefully, we can just
pound it down their
throats. That's the plan
McDaniel wasn't the
only Pirate ailing from
the preseason jamboree
- Sneads lost 14-6 in a
half to Liberty County,
and 15-14 in a half to
Chipley with leading
runner Tre Keys hav-
ing a bruised shoulder
and several other play-
ers dealing with back
Dowling said he didn't
expect anyone other
than McDaniel to miss
the game, however.
The Seahawks are
dealing with a key injury

of their own, as their top
tailback Dwayne Griggs
suffered a leg injury in
their preseason classic
against Bozeman and
will be out of action for
up to a month.
That could spell
trouble for a Franklin
County team that was
hammered by the Bucks
It also gives the Pirates
a good opportunity to
open the season with a
solid victory, something
that Dowling said his
team could very much
"That's what we need,
to get some confidence
up," the coach said. "We
have to go take care of
"Hopefully, we'll go out
and do what we're sup-
posed to do: take care
of the football, elimi-
nate their big plays and
take care of business like
we're supposed to."

Marianna coach Ray
Lawson said, he couldn't
have asked for much
more from his team -well,
"I was very pleased, but
if we had cut out the stu-
pid penalties, we would've
almost played a perfect
game," he said. "Hope-
fully, we got those out of

Jaguars only team without preseason sack

The Associated Press

JACKSONVILLE Defensive line
coach Joe Cullen kept several play-
ers late after practice Tuesday.
None of them complained. After
all, it's easy to argue that the Jackson-
ville Jaguars need the extra work.
The Jaguars are the only NFL team
without a sack in the preseason.
Coach Jack Del Rio insists it's not
cause for alarm, pointing out that
they played the first three exhibi-
tions without starter Aaron Kamp-
man and have played without Jer-
emy Mincey, Terrance Knighton and
Tyson Alualu.
But no sacks? in the preseason?
Even against second- and third-
team offenses?
"It is kind of weird," Mincey said.
"This is the first team I've ever been
on that didn't have a sack in the pre-

season. I don't think you can quite
judge us off that yet. Guys are still
getting used to each other. One
comes up, one goes down. We've
just got to get our synchronization
and they'll start coming. Hopefully
they'll come in bunches this week."
The Jaguars have one final shot at
avoiding a sackless preseason. They
host quarterback Sam Bradford and
the St. Louis Rams on Thursday
Del Rio expressed more concern
about his team's lack of preseason
scoring outscored 46-22 in the
first half against New England, At-
lanta and Buffalo than its lack of
defensive pressure.
The Jaguars got decent pressure
against the Patriots and Falcons but
barely touched Bills quarterbacks
Ryan Fitzpatrick and Tyler Thig-
pen. Fitzpatrick completed 11 of 12

passes for 165 yards and two touch-
downs, and finished with a perfect
QB rating (158.3).
"You can't sugarcoat Buffalo," said
Kampman, who will make his pre-
season debut against the Rams. "We
did not rush as well as we had the
week before. That wasn't great, but
here we have an opportunity Thurs-
day and obviously we'll be looking
forward to trying to remedy that
Even if they don't, Del Rio won't
"It's going to get written off the
minute this last preseason game
is over," Del Rio said. "You can talk
about it for another week, then no-
body really cares. When you're go-
ing to care is when you get into the
regular season. Is the quarterback
on his back? Are you getting off the
field on third down?

national scene.

victory over Clemson in the Mei-
neke Car Care Bowl, last season dur-
ing his first year at South Florida.

Titans DE Morgan has knee
surgery again
NASHVILLE, Tenn. Defensive
end Derrick Morgan, the Titans'
first-round pick of 2010, will miss
the season opener after having ar-
throscopic surgery on his left knee.
Morgan tore his ACL in Tennes-
see's fourth game as a rookie, and
he had been cleared before training
camp. But the player from Georgia
Tech felt something in the knee
during the Titans' second preseason
game at St. Louis.
Coach Mike Munchak said Tues-
day that Morgan had the surgery
when he visited Dr. James Andrews
on Monday in Alabama. Andrews
performed the original surgery on
Morgan's knee.
Munchak says it will be a small
setback for Morgan, who could miss
up to three weeks.

fans unhappy

with Dolphins

The Associated Press

MIAMI Miami Hurri-
canes fans have had a lot
to be upset about lately,
and now they're angry at
the Miami Dolphins.
The Dolphins, recently
disclosed plans to honor
Tim Tebow and the rest of
the Florida Gators' 2008
national championship
team. The ceremony will
take place during the
Dolphins' game against
Tebow and the Denver
Broncos on Oct. 23.
That means the Ga-

to Dolphins executives,
on Twitter and elsewhere.
Some unhappy about the
ceremony said it slights
the Hurricanes at a time
they're already down,
with the program reel-
ing because of an NCAA
investigation stemming
from allegations by a

convicted Ponzi scheme
The idea to honor
the Gators originated
months ago, before news
of the NCAA investiga-
tion surfaced, Dolphins
CEO Mike Dee said
Dee said the Dolphins
also made an offer to
honor the Hurricanes'
2001 national champi-
onship team during a
game this season. The
Hurricanes declined be-
cause they plan their own
The ceremony for the
Gators is an attempt by
the Dolphins to help
sluggish ticket sales, Dee
"We're sensitive to the
reaction," he said. "But
we have a very significant
challenge in our market
to market Dolphins foot-
ball, and unfortunately
we're not in a position to
be selective about whom
we market to."
More than 20 former
Gators are expected to
attend the ceremony, in-

Annie's Mailbox

Dear Annie: I'm recovering from cancer.
To thank my husband for being so help-
ful, caring and patient during my treat-
ment, I want to give him a nice party for
his 30th birthday. He liked the idea and
put together a guest list.
I mentioned this to my in-laws, and
they offered to help. The next thing I
know, they've insisted on paying for the
entire party and having it at their house.
They also wanted me to invite some of
their friends. I told them my husband is
not close to these people and I did not
intend to invite them. They became up-.
set, saying I was putting them in an awk-
ward situation and they would never be
able to explain why these friends weren't
included in this big party. That annoyed
me, and I told my in-laws we would now
have a much smaller party at my house.
It seemed to me that they were mak-
ing this about them and not about my
husband. Now there is tension between
us. What should I do?

If you have second thoughts about some-
thing, often the first idea was right and the
second wrong. At the bridge table, though, it
is nice to have two possible lines of play to get
home, especially if you are in a grand slam.
How should South play in seven hearts after
West leads the trump nine and East follows W
suit? North's jump to three hearts was game- 4
forcing with exactly three-card support. South, V
with a very strong hand, used Blackwood and *
jumped to seven hearts. (South might first have
dabbled his toe in the slam water by continu-
ing with three spades over three hearts. Here,
North would have been very happy to control-
bid four clubs to say that he had the .club ace
and a slam-suitable hand.)
Declarer had 12 winners: three spades, five
hearts, three diamonds and one club. His first
thought was to establish dummy's fifth dlub.
That needed hearts 3-2 and clubs 4-3. So, South
won with his heart ace and played a trump to
dummy's 10. East's spade discard was a blow.
South's second plan worked fine. He cashed
dummy's three pointed-suit winners and took
his two spade tricks, discarding dummy's last
diamond. Then he ruffed the diamond six on
the board, cashed the club ace, ruffed a club in
his hand, drew West's remaining trumps, and

Dear Stuck: Your in-laws overstepped
by co-opting your party, and it was per-
fectly reasonable for you to back out and
start over. But it would be a good idea to
mend fences. Please tell your in-laws that
you greatly appreciate their efforts, but
you didn't feel up to the major shindig
they had in mind. Promise to cooperate
in every way possible should they choose
to have a second celebration at a later

Dear Annie: I disagree with your answer
to "Danged if I Do and Danged if I Don't,"
whose son and his new wife don't want
her to stay in touch with the ex-wife.
They have no business telling Mom
whom she can and cannot contact. The
ex is the mother of the grandchildren and
still part of the family. You don't know
that the new wife won't change her views.
She should be making peace with the
family she married into, not dictating

U. S. Environmental Protection Agency -
Region 4 Proposed Cleanup Plan & Public
Comment Period Sapp Battery Superfund Site
Cottondale, Florida
Public Meeting: Wednesday,
September 7,2011 Public Comment Period:
August 25th to September 25th, 2011
Purpose/Objective: The U.S. Environmental
Protection Agency (EPA) announces the Pro-
posed Plan for the cleanup of the Sapp Battery
Superfund Site in Cottondale, Florida. The EPA
is proposing changes to the cleanup because
the site conditions have changed since the EPA
selected the original cleanup strategy in 1986.
This notice is part of public participation re-
quirements under Section 117(a) of the Com-
prehensive Environmental Response, Compen-
sation and Liability Act (CERCLA or
"Superfund"). The Proposed Plan can be found
Site Background: The Sapp Battery Superfund
Site operated from the early 1970s until 1980.
The 45-acre Site is located about five miles
south of Cottordale, Florida and about 1,000
feet west of the intersection of State Route 231
and County Road 280 (Corbin Road). The im-
proper disposal of battery casings and battery
acid contaminated the groundwater, soil and
surrounding wetlands. The EPA selected a rem-
edy for the site groundwater, soil and wetlands
in September 1986. The site soils and wetlands
were cleaned up by emergency actions in 1980
and 1984-85, and by remedial actions in 1999-
2001 (soils) and 2007-2009.(wetlands). The lead
and battery acid from the cracked batteries
caused significant groundwater contamination
at the Site. Since the soil remedy was finished,
groundwater contamination has improved sig-
Proposed Cleanup Approach: The EPA propos-
es to use Monitored Natural Attenuation (MNA)

to achieve the cleanup. MNA is underway and
ihas resulted in significant improvements since
the source of contamination was removed by
the soil and swamp cleanup. The data satis-
fies the EPA's guidance policies for the selec-
tion of MNA as the final cleanup method.
Proposed Plan Schedule: The EPA is offering a
30-day public comment period from August
25th to September 25th, 2011 to provide an op-
portunity for public input in selecting the final
cleanup approach. Public input is an important
contribution to the remedy selection process.
During this comment period, EPA will hold a
public meeting on September 7, 2011 at the
Cottondale Community Center, 2666 Front
Street, Cottondale, Florida, 32437 from 6:00 pm
- 8:00 pm. The EPA will present the latest un-
derstanding of Site contamination; describe
the preferred alternative listed in the Proposed
Plan and answer questions. The Proposed Plan
will provide a summary of the cleanup alterna-
tives being considered; therefore, the public is
encouraged to consult the Information Reposi-
tory for a more detailed history and explana-
During this 30-day comment period, the public
is invited to review all site-related documents
housed at the local Information Repository lo-
cated in the reference section at the Jackson
County Public Library, 2929 Green Street, Ma-
rianna, Florida 32446, (850) 482-9631. Also, the
public is invited to offer comments to the EPA
during this time period. The actual remedial ac-
tion could be different from the proposed alter-
native, depending upon new information or
comments the EPA may receive from the pub-
lic. If you prefer to submit written comments,

Israel sends 2 warships to Egyptian border

The Associated Press

sent two more warships
to the Red Sea border with
Egypt, the military said
Tuesday, part of a military
reinforcement there fol-
lowing warnings that mili-
tants are planning another
attack on southern Israel
from Egyptian soil.
Earlier this week, Israel's
military ordered more
troops to the border area
following intelligence re-
ports of an impending at-

tack, days after militants
crossed into Israel through
the Egyptian border and
killed eight Israelis in a
brazen attack that touched
off a wave of violence be-
tween Israel and militants
in the Gaza Strip.
Relative calm has re-
turned, but Israel has re-
mained on alert since the
deadly Aug. 18 raid, clos-
ing roads near the bor-
der and warning citizens
against traveling to Egypt's
Sinai Peninsula, a popular
vacation destination for

Israel's Home Front Min-
ister Matan Vilnai said
Tuesday that militants
from the Gaza-based Is-
lamic Jihad were in Sinai,
waiting to strike.
"The Palestinian Islamic
Jihad wants to carry out
a terror attack along the
Egyptian border," Vilnai
told reporters. "The Egyp-
tian border is absolutely
porous. We have known
this for many years."
The attack this month
sparked calls to increase

security on both sides of
the frontier and created
new tensions between
Israel and Egypt, which
have maintained cool rela-
tions since signing a 1979
peace treaty. The violence
shattered the usual sense
of calm that has held for
decades along the border,
though there have been
sporadic attacks in Sinai.
Beyond announcing that
two more warships were
patrolling the border area,
the military would give no
further details.

Israel has a permanent
naval presence with a base
in Eilat, at the northern tip
of the Red Sea on the Egyp-
tian border. The Israeli mil-
itary would not disclose the
number of warships usu-
ally positioned on its mari-
time border with Egypt or
from where the two extra
ships were sent.
Access for ships to the
Eilat naval base from the
rest of Israel is possible
only through Egypt's Suez
Canal. Egyptian officials
there were not immediate-

ly available for comment.
No changes in security
alignments have been ob-
served on the Egyptian
side of the border in the
last two weeks. Earlier
this month, the Egyptian
government dispatched
thousands of additional
troops to Sinai as part of
a major operation against
al-Qaida inspired militants
who have been increas-
ingly active since longtime
Egyptian leader Hosni
Mubarak was toppled in
February. -

Libya rebels pledge assault on Gadhafi stronghold

The Associated Press

HEISHA, Libya Libyan
rebels pledged Tuesday to
launch an assault within
days on Moammar Gad-
hafi's hometown, the oust-
ed strongman's last major
bastion of support, while a
top official said the rebels
have a "good idea" where
Gadhafi is hiding.
The rebels and NATO
said that Gadhafi loyalists
were negotiating the fate
of Sirte, a heavily milita-
rized city some 250 miles
(400 kilometers) east of the
capital, Tripoli.
Mustafa Abdel Jalil, the
head of the rebels' Nation-
al Transitional Council,
said that negotiations with
forces in Sirte would end
Saturday after the Muslim
holiday of Eid al-Fitr, when
the rebels would "act deci-
sively and militarily."
"We can't wait more than
that," he told reporters in
the eastern city of Beng-
hazi. "We seek and support
any efforts to enter these
places peacefully. At the
end, it might be decided
militarily. I hope it will not
be the case."
Col. Roland Lavoie, a
NATO spokesman, said it's
possible Sirte might sur-


render without a fight.
"We have seen dialogues
in several villages that
were freed I'm not say-
ing with no hostilities, but
with minimal hostilities,"
he said.
Lavoie said NATO would
continue its mission as
long as civilians in the
country are under threat,
although the area around
the capital, Tripoli, is now
"essentially free."
Lavoie appeared to
struggle to. explain how
NATO strikes were protect-
ing civilians at this stage in
the conflict. Asked about
NATO's assertion that it
hit 22 armed vehicles near
Sirte on Monday, he was
unable to say how the ve-
hicles were threatening
civilians, or whether they
were in motion or parked.
A top rebel official,
meanwhile, said their
forces were closing in on
Ali Tarhouni, a minister
in the National Transition-
al Council, told reporters
Tuesday that "we have a
good idea where he is. We
don't have any doubt that
we will catch him."

Algerian news reports
had said Aisha's pending
childbirth was one reason
for Algeria's decision to
take the family in.
The departure of Gad-
hafi's family was one of the
strongest signs yet that the
longtime leader has lost
his grip on the country.

Algeria's decision to host
members of the Gadhafi
clan is an "aggressive act
against the Libyan people's
wish," said Mahmoud
Shammam, information
minister in the rebels' in-
terim government.
Rebels also said another
Gadhafi son, Khamis, was
likely killed last week in a
battle south of Tripoli.
"We are determined to
arrest and try the whole
Gadhafi family, including
Gadhafi himself," Sham-
marn said late Monday.
"We'd like to see those peo-
ple coming back to Libya."
Rebel leaders said they

Algeria welcomed Gad-
hafi's family. Throughout
Libya's six-month upris-
ing, rebels have accused
Algeria of providing Gad-

repress the revolt.
Gadhafi's children played
important roles in the
country's military and eco-
nomic life. Hannibal head-

in the defense of toppled
