Inmate escapes from work camp site
BY LAUREN DELGADO
Inmate Jeremy D. Foxworth
escaped from the Graceville
Fire Department, where he was
working with other prisoners
for the Graceville Work Camp, at
9:12 a.m. on Tuesday.
He was last seen wearing a
light blue cotton uniform, with
a white stripe down either side
of his pants. He is
described as white
hair, brown eyes,
129 pounds. Fox-
worth has several
tattoos: a cross on his left arm,
an initial on his left wrist, and a
dagger and skull on his right leg.
Paula Bryant, the public in-
formation officer for the Florida
Department of Corrections, said
Foxworth was seen by Graceville
Fire Department Chief Tommy
Dennis at 9:07 a.m. When the
chief did not see Foxworth at
9:12 a.m., he alerted authorities.
The canine units for the
Apalachee Correctional Insti-
tution, East Unit; Holmes Cor-
rectional Institution; Liberty
Correctional Institution; and
Jackson Correctional Institution
were put on the case, The Jack-
son County Sheriffs Office is
None of the correctional in-
stitutions were placed on lock-
down, but the other prisoners
in the work camp were brought
back in and counted. No one
else was missing.

Rep. Drake visits Republican Club of West Florida

Used Car Manager
Bill Naples and Lyn Naples take a tour of
the new Grand Ridge wastewater treatment
plant during its 2010 open house and ribbon
BY DEBORAH BUCKHALTER
The town of Grand Ridge and North
Florida Construction have settled most
of the disputes that led to a lawsuit and
counter-claim involving the town's new
wastewater treatment plant and its
North Florida Construction was the
main contractor on that job, and sued
the town after Grand Ridge refused to
make its final payment on the project,
which cost more than $1 million and
was funded largely with grants be-
stowed upon the city by various agen-
cies. The city drew down the available
funds as bills came due, and still owed
about $150,000 when it decided to stop
It had received information from the
project engineer, Hatchmott-McDon-
ald, and the University of Florida that
indicated various problems ranging
from the dimensions of the holding
pond to the way scum-wiper blades
were installed in the plant, and the dis-
pute also involved the type of grass used
to create the plant's sprayfield.
Negotiations began toward a resolu-
tion of the dispute shortly after North
Florida Construction's lawsuit and the
city's counter-claim were filed. Dur-
ing this time, Grand Ridge crews made
some of the corrections the city and its
advisors found necessary, and the con-
struction company made some of the
others. The city agreed to make the final
payment as part of the settlement, and
neither party was awarded damages
sought in the lawsuits.
Matt Fuqua, the attorney represent-
ing Grand Ridge, said the settlement
reached a few days ago resolves all but
one issue; they must still iron out the
holding pond's proper elevation and a
determination of which party should
take action if changes are needed.
Fuqua said there is still the possibility
that the remaining dispute could lead
to court action if the city and company
can't agree on a solution. The city would
file a claim against the bond if it can't
work out a solution with the contractor
on that issue.

SeaWorld announces new attractions
The Associated Press
ORLANDO SeaWorld Orlando
on Tuesday announced the most
ambitious expansion in the nearly
40-year history of the theme park,
including a sea turtle exhibit with
a domed 3-D theater and an im-
mersive penguin experience that
promises to drop guests down in the
middle of frigid Antarctica.
"TurtleTrek," with huge tanks of
live sea turtles and manatees, will'
feature a first-of-its-kind domed
theater with computer-generated
3-D images that will "put guests un-
der water with the animals into an
amazing journey into their lives,"
park president Terry Prather said.
The turtle exhibit will open some-
time in the spring of next year along
with a new area called "Freshwater
Oasis" at SeaWorld's adjacent swim-
with-the-dolphins boutique park,
Discovery Cove. That attraction will
put people in a clear spring under
a rainforest-type canopy of trees
to swim alongside Asian otters and
In spring 2013, SeaWorld will
open "Antarctica Empire of the
Penguin," which officials said is
the largest single expansion proj-
ect ever undertaken at the Orlando
park. An artist's rendering shows
an entire section of shops and res-
taurants with an interactive ride at
its center, somewhat similar to the
wildly successful Harry Potter at-
traction at Universal Orlando. Parts
of the experience will also include a
radical temperature change, which
will undoubtedly be welcomed by
those visiting in the steamy heat of
a Florida summer.
"This will be the coldest attraction
ever constructed," promised Brian
Morrow, the park's chief designer.
Prather would not provide a cost
estimate for the. projects, which
are unique to the Orlando park and
won't be added at SeaWorld's parks
in San Antonio and San Diego.
On Tuesday, SeaWorld Orlando executives (from back left) Julie Scardina, animal
ambassador, Terry Prather, park president, and Brian Morrow, director of creative
development, talk about a new attraction, "Antarctica, Empire of the Penguin," that
will be added to the SeaWorld Orlando theme park.
He said there are no immediate
plans for a corresponding increase
in admission prices. Following
the lead of Walt Disney World and
Universal, SeaWorld in September
added $2 onto the price of a single-
day admission ticket, bringing it to
The changes at SeaWorld were an-
nounced as attendance at central
Florida theme parks continues to
improve after suffering in a linger-
ing recession and the specter of a
BP oil spill that kept visitors away
from Florida in 2010.
Dennis Speigel, a Cincinnati-
based theme park consultant, char-
acterized SeaWorld's expansion
plans as "a big move on their part. It
follows suit with what Universal did
with Harry Potter and what Disney
is doing with some of their prop-
erties. I think it was needed, and I
think it's very timely for SeaWorld
Construction is under way on the
turtle exhibit and new Discovery
Cove attraction. Work on the Ant-
arctica section will begin soon on
the site of a current penguin attrac-
tion, which will close at some point.

opportunities for guests to see pen-
guins -while the park is between

tion for trainers to eventually work

Former aide to Fla. House speaker lobbying
The Associated Press
TALLAHASSEE The Florida
Legislature's upcoming fight over
gambling may already be creating
an economic boom for lobbyists.
Lawmakers will consider approv-
ing three mega-casinos in South
Florida this winter, which backers
say would inject billions into Flori-
da's economy. Gov. Rick Scott, how-
ever, has already called the pending
fight a "lobbyist relief act."
Lobbyist registration records back
up Scott's contention: More than
100 lobbyists have signed up to rep-
resent various gaming companies.
And this doesn't count the dozens
of lobbyists already registered for
business groups that have vowed to
fight the proposal.
"Pretty much everybody I can
think of in our profession is en-
gaged," said Brian Ballard, a high-
profile Tallahassee lobbyist who
represents a subsidiary of Genting,
the Malaysia-based company that
wants to build a massive resort ho-
tel and casino overlooking Biscayne
Many of the lobbyists hired so
far have ties to Scott or legislative
leaders. They include such figures
as former U.S. Rep. Lincoln Diaz-
Balart and former Republican Party
of Florida chairman Al Cardenas.
One of the latest lobbyists hired
is Julie Fess, a former aide to House
Speaker Dean Cannon. Fess left her
job as Cannon's legislative aide in
Last month she registered as a lob-
byist for Arcola Systems Florida, a
company that makes software used
by Internet cafes.

If allowed to stand, that

for the 2012 legislative
session, which starts Jan.
10, to license three such
resorts in South Florida.

The Supreme Court first
must decide whether to
take jurisdiction. If it does,
the justices then will hear
arguments on the merits
of the case.
The appellate court ruled
the amendment doesn't
prohibit lawmakers from
approving slots at facilities
other than those that meet
the amendment's criteria.

2004, it permitted slot ma-

In reviewing the Air

dependent federal investi-

puted the conclusion that
none of the allegations of
mishandling of remains
amounted to violations of

cial counsel submitted its
own report Tuesday to the
White House and to the
House and Senate armed

oversee the Air Force.

"In these instances the
report demonstrates a pat-
tern oftheAir Force's failure
to acknowledge culpability
for wrongdoing relating to

their families," the special
counsel's report said.
"While the report reflects
a willingness to find paper-
work violations and errors,
with the exception of the
cases of missing portions
(of remains), the findings
stop short of accepting ac-
countability for failing to
handle remains with the
requisite 'reverence, care
and dignity befitting them
and the circumstances,'" it
In addition to the two
cases of lost body pieces,
the Air Force reviewed al-
legations that mortuary
officials acted improperly
in sawing off an arm bone
that protruded from the
body of a Marine in a way
that prevented his body
from being placed in his
uniform for viewing before
burial. The Marine's family
had requested seeing him
in his uniform but was not
consulted about the deci-
sion to remove the bone.
The Marine, whose iden-
tity was not released by
the Air Force, was killed
by a roadside bomb in Af-
ghanistan in January 2010.
The 2009 cases of lost body
pieces also involved troops
killed in Afghanistan.
The Air Force inspector
general began his investi-
gation in June 2010. It con-
cluded that the mortuary
had not violated any rule
or regulation by removing
the Marine's bone as it did.
But the Air Force has since
changed procedures to en-
sure that a representative

Corps has a formal

The Office of Special
Counsel took a different
view. It noted that the Air
Force said the decision
not to seek family consent
was based on a desire to
spare the family "undue
distress." But the special
counsel said it does not
believe the Air Force actu-
ally even considered these
issues in deciding not to
consult the family "but

Interior Secretary Ken
Salazar unveiled a pro-
posal to hold 15 lease sales
for areas in the Gulf of
Mexico, including two in
the eastern Gulf, and three
off Alaska's coast in the
time frame from 2012 to
2017. The sales off Alaska,
where native groups and
objected to drilling, would
be the first since 2008.
They would be held late in
the five-year time'frame to
allow for scientific evalu-
ations in the Chukchi and
Beaufort Seas, which Inte-
rior officials called a "fron-
tier" for drilling. And they
would be targeted to avoid
areas with cultural and
ties, officials said.

taking there is a cautious
one," Deputy Interior Sec-
retary David Hayes said of
the Arctic leases. "We are

President Barack Obama's
strategy for energy pro-
duction, which has con-
tinually shifted to account
for political realities, high
gasoline prices and envi-
ronmental disasters such
as last year's Gulf oil spill.
Weeks before that disaster,
the White House had talk-
ed of expanding offshore
drilling off Alaska, in the
Atlantic and throughout
the eastern Gulf, in part to

In May, with Republicans
in Congress passing bills to
speed up and expand off-
shore drilling and with the
public outraged over high
gasoline prices, Obama di-
rected his administration
to extend existing leases
and to hold more frequent
sales in the federal petro-
leum reserve in Alaska to
boost oil production.
Tuesday's proposal goes
slightly further by putting
parts of the Cook Inlet,
Chukchi and Beaufort seas
back up for sale. Presi-

opened up those areas for
drilling in 2008, as part of
a proposal that included
drilling off the West and

Herman Cain went on the

the only woman to public-

latest in a series of claims
that have threatened his

Don't ignore science
By The Tampa Tribune
It will be interesting to see how Republican presi-
dential contenders respond to an exhaustive study
by a prominent skeptic of global warming that
found the planet is indeed rapidly getting hotter.
The study's conclusion does not mean GOP candi-
dates should suddenly embrace more regulations, new
fees or unbridled spending on green technologies. It
does mean they should treat the issue seriously, and
not simply dismiss it as a kooky fabrication by back-to-
While there remains a great deal of debate about the
extent of the threat, the scientific evidence is compel-
ling that climate change is occurring, and the burning
of fossil fuels is likely a factor.
The GOP candidates should be offering conservative,
market-based responses, not blanket denials. Yet so far
only Mitt Romney and Jon Huntsman have acknowl-
edged they believe climate change is real, and lately
Romney has sounded as if he were backtracking.
Texas Gov. Rick Perry says he thinks climate change
is an unproven theory advanced by scientists who have
"manipulated data." Herman Cain calls man-made
global warming "poppycock. I don't believe in it."
They should consider the findings of physicist Rich-
ard Muller, a long-time climate change skeptic, who
conducted a two-year study that was partially funded
by the Charles Koch Foundation, a conservative group
that has funded the tea party and campaigns against
environmental regulations. Brothers Charles and David
Koch are involved in oil and other industries that pro-
duce greenhouse gas emissions.
Yet Muller found the land is 1.6 degrees warmer than
in the 1950s, numbers that affirmed the findings of the
National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration and
NASA. Muller did not research the exact cause, but the
majority of climate scientists say the burning of coal, oil
and other fossil fuels is a factor. Muller seemed inclined
to accept those findings.
He says it was prudent to reduce the carbon dioxide
created by fossil fuels because "greenhouse gases could
have a disastrous impact on the world." This from a
University of California, Berkeley, scientist who once
mocked Al Gore.
Muller still has doubts that the climate change threat
is as grave as some claim. Research should continue
on climate change causes, likely impacts and the most
effective responses. But it is irresponsible to treat the
matter as political make-believe.
The effects of climate change could have devastating
effects on the economy, public health and the environ-
ment. Consider Florida, where even a minor increase
in ocean levels could ruin the tourism industry and the
value of coastal real estate. Rising temperatures can
increase the spread of pests and disease and can cause
more severe weather patterns. Not all the impacts are
negative. Warmer weather, for instance, can help grow-
ers in certain areas. But it may also result in damaging
droughts and floods.
The U.S. military takes climate change seriously, rec-
ognizing how changes in weather and the availability
of resources can affect the stability of other nations and
create threats to our national security.
There is no doubt some left-wing activists are using
climate change to advance government command-
and-control schemes. The level of threat is still un-
known, and certain natural events are simply beyond
our control. Doom-and-gloom scenarios always merit a
degree of healthy skepticism.
But simply ignoring the issue and leaving our na-
tion unprepared for the possibilities is hardly conser-
The prudent reaction is to confront the facts, develop
-a long-term course of action and find ways to encour-
age private markets not with Solyndra-like giveaways
to develop clean-energy and other technologies that
will enable the nation to cope with whatever climate
change comes our way.

Ron Paul, true believer
BY DAVID M. SHRIBMAN
N ASHUA, N.H. -The trees
are ablaze with yellows and
reds and, since an early
snowfall the night before, blan-
keted with white as well. All that
color in southern New Hampshire
in mid-autumn, however, is more
than a visual display., It underlines
how mixbd up the seasons are
- how mixed up our politics are
- in the final months before the
first presidential primary.
But this is also the season for
Ron Paul, the iconoclastic Texas
congressman who for a quarter
century has been railing about
government spending, the Fed,,the
overextension of American military
power, the gold standard and, until
recently, has been relegated to the
periphery of our politics.
Now, Dr. Paul, an obstetrician and
midwife to a movement, is sud-
denly front and center, though not
exactly occupying the center of our

where the overlords are suggesting
that "working hard and saving is

bubble, the housing bubble, the
bond bubble and with every
speech (and a barrage of ads on
Granite State television), he is
building a Ron Paul bubble.
"We spent too much, we ran up
a debt, we regulated too much and
then we said we can't handle it all
so we'll depend on the Fed," he
said. There wasn't a set of notes in
sight, nor in his suit pocket. He's
given this riff for decades. "We
continue to spend, the deficit has
exploded, we continued to bor-
row and we continue to tax-- and
we wonder why we haven't had a
This is not a message that is alien
to this terrain. Long before some of
the members of the Greater Nashua
Chamber of Commerce came of
age politically, New Hampshire
politicians, especially Gov. Meldrim
Thomson Jr., who presided in Con-
cort from 1973 to 1979, spoke in an
idiom much like Dr. Paul's. He was
the original voice for original intent
in this state, the leading critic of
the United Nations, the most vocal
opponent of taxes.
So if the Paul message of "free-
dom and prosperity" is to flourish
anywhere, this is the place and
this is the time.
"He reminds us that the govern-
ment has a limited role, not an
expansive role," said Ovide Lamon-
tagne, unsuccessful Republican
gubernatorial candidate here in
1996 and a candidate again in 2012.
Lamontagne is not committed to
any presidential candidate, but he
regards the Paul candidacy as "a
statement of empowerment, not
Nobody is predicting that Dr. Paul
will prevail in January's primary.
Former Gov. Mitt Romney of Mas-
sachusetts has roots too deep in
this region and is in too strong a
position, at least right now. But the
Nashua crowd wasn't only full of
the converted. It was crowded, too,
with the curious.
One of them was Bob Hallowell,
president of the Nashua School
Board, so far uncommitted to any
candidate. He's thinking about Dr.
Paul because he's "the only one
who got the financial crisis right."
Another was Davi Peters, a Nashua
,attorney. "I'm just curious," she
said. "I'm here to listen."
For years Ron Paul events didn't
attract the curious, who were
repelled by the true believers,
committed supporters like Robert
Carley, who rose at 3 a.m. to drive
from Darien, Conn., to Nashua to
present Dr. Paul with a cartoon of
the candidate. "He has a great face
to caricature interesting eyes,
high eyebrows," Carley said. "But
I admire his conservative poli-
cies. He was prophetic about the
economy and all the money we
wasted in Iraq."
Dr. Paul is a political perennial,
which ordinarily is a political li-
ability nobody wants his name
linked with Dennis Kucinich or
Harold Stassen. But Dr. Paul is a-
perennial with a difference. No
longer are he and his views color-
ful eccentricities. He's not the only
one skeptical of the Fed, nor the
only one worried about federal
spending. His $2 million ad of-
fensive here the earliest big TV
bang yet has a simple theme: the
changing views of his rivals and the
consistency of his own views.
He hasn't adjusted his message to
the current debate. The current de-
bate has been bent to his message.
"I don't know whether things
have come my way or not," he said
in an interview. 'A lot of mistakes
have been made and people are
paying new attention to all this
Today, with the economy still in
distress and foreign wars causing
increasing distress, a Venn diagram
of Dr. Paul's ideas would give a
viewer a serious case of vertigo.
His position on the Fed intersects
that of Sen. Bernard Sanders, the
Vermont socialist. His position
on spending intersects that of the
tea party. His position on foreign
intervention intersects those of
some conservative Republicans
and liberal Democrats. And he sees
allies in Occupy Wall Street.
"The street demonstrations are
symbols of our problems," he said
in the interview. "It's now important
that all that energy be channeled in
the right way. A lot of those people
are skeptical of the Fed. But some
of them want to penalize anybody
who's successful. That's not the way
All those intersections explain
why he was asked here by a woman
who's an officer in the National
Guard whether he'd withdraw
American troops from Afghanistan
(his answer: "Just come home") and
by a man who described himself
as a carpenter, wilderness guide,
teacher and novelist whether the
Fed was "a cabal of international
bankers" (Dr. Paul: "We can get rid
of it by congressional action").
Listen to the heart of the Paul

choices," he said. "We have accept-

role of government should be."
Every one of those sentences
could be spoken in 2012 by any
number of Republican candidates.

Goodwill is here for Veterans
In 2010, more than 20 million
men and women in the United
States over the age of 18 were veter-
ans. As service members transition
to civilian life, they face a bleak job
market in addition to other signifi-
cant challenges that make it more
difficult for them to find work, grow
their careers and provide for them-
selves and their families. Physical
and psychological disabilities,
substance abuse, homelessness,
long waits for benefits and other
support services are just a few of
That's why Goodwill has ramped
up its efforts to prepare veterans
for careers post-deployment and
connect them to necessary sup-
port services, including Veteran
transition and job assistance and
mental health care. Goodwill helps
promote the leadership, teamwork,
and efficiency skills developed in
the military, and capitalize on fa-
miliarity with following orders and
the chain of command.
On Veterans Day and every
day, Goodwill remains commit-
ted to giving back to the men and
women who have given so much to
preserve our freedom and way of
life. Your support of Goodwill helps
us serve America's heroes as they

But as the eurozone's third-largest
economy, Italy, with debts of around
1.9 trillion ($2.6 trillion), is consid-
ered far too big for Europe to bail
out, putting even greater pressure
on the country's leaders to reassure
markets that Italy is willing and able
to get its financial house in order.
Italy's borrowing rates spiked
Tuesday to their highest level since
the euro was established back in
1999. The yield on Italy's 10-year
bonds was up 0.24 percentage point
at 6.77 percent.
A rate of over 7 percent is consid-

his private Mediaset television. He
added: "Things like who leads or
who doesn't lead the government"
are less important than doing "what
is best for the country."
His resignation may not be
enough. Political analyst Sergio
Romano, in a front-page column
in Corriere della Sera on Tuesday,
warned that unless a clear program
emerges in a post-Berlusconi era
"the foreign observers will reach the
conclusion that the end of the Ber-
lusconi government does not nec-
essarily mean the advent of a more
credible, trustworthy government."
Italy accounts for 17 percent of the
eurozone's gross domestic product.
But a substantial part of its debt
needs to be rolled over in coming

Bullpups take two at home over Walton
BY SHELIA MADER
The Marianna Middle School Bullpups
basketball team made it two in a row
Thursday evening at home with a pair
of solid wins over the visiting Walton
The 'A' team won by a narrow four-point
margin at 29-24 while the 'B' team blew
away the Braves 37-19. In 'A' team action,
the Bullpups were led by Tre Clemmons
with 12 points, followed closely by Her-
man Williams, also in double digits with
Picking up the final seven points was
Jonathan Franklin with seven points. The
Pups came out sluggish in the first period
of play, putting up just two points while
Walton countered with four.
The Pups turned it up several notches in
the second quarter, with Williams hitting
two from downtown and adding a basket
for eight of the 16 points scored.
The defense stayed tight and held Wal-
ton to just six points, taking an 18-10 lead
into the locker room at the half.
The third quarter was a dog fight with
Walton edging out Marianna 10-9 to nar-
row the lead to 27-20.
Walton picked up four points in the
fourth while Mafianna was held to two
but captured the win.
In the 'B' team matchup, the Pups
jumped out to a 10-3 lead in the first
quarter but faltered in the second quar-
ter-picking up only one point-while Wal-
ton matched Marianna's first quarter total
of 10, to take a 13-11 lead into the locker
room at the midway point.
Marianna took the court with fire
in their eyes in the second half, and it
showed on the scoreboard with 14 points,
while Walton was held to six.
Marianna put up an additional 11
points in the final period of play and kept

CORALGABLES -Neitherteamis ranked.
Neither team will play for this season's na-
tional title. Neither team has regained its
spot as a college football powerhouse.
It's Miami-Florida State week.
"That's all that needs to be said," Miami
safety JoJo Nicholas said.
One of college football's top rivalries is re-
kindled on Saturday afternoon in Tallahas-
see when.Florida State and Miami meet for
the 56th time. It's only the third time since
1977 that the annual game will go off with
both teams unranked the others were in
2007 and 2008 and the first time since
1975 where both teams have at least three
losses already on their record.
Again, so what?
Miami fans, Florida State fans, they carry
who wins and loses this game with them for
the following year, much like folks do with
Michigan-Ohio State, Auburn-Alabama
and Southern Calforinia-UCLA games. And
despite there being little at stake besides
pride and bragging rights, it'll still be na-
tionally televised on ABC and ESPN, more
proof that any 'Noles-'Canes get-together
is still must-see TV.
"I don't think there's any question that
this is THAT game," Miami coach Al Gold-
en said. "There's maybe a few that have
rivaled the intensity, what it's meant from
an national implication standpoint, and of
course the breadth and depth of talent that
has been represented in this game over the
last quarter-century. The mantle has been
passed and it's our job to carry them and
move the program forward. It should be a
Both teams are coming into this weekend
after convincing wins.

easily one of the Hurricanes' most complete

them coming by at least 25 points. It's been

"KIadejah is the only
one really with experi-
'ence. She's going to be our
ball-handler and take on
the point guard position,
which is an adjustment
for her because she's never
had to run it before," the
coach said. "She's always
had (Grimsley and Wright)
before, but now the girls
will be looking to her.
"At the same time, we're
not putting the pressure
on one person. We want to
spread the offense around,
spread the wealth around
to everyone. We're not
looking for one person
to do everything. We just
want whoever has the best
shot to take it."

she believes that White will
be able to help the team

having Fredericka," the
coach said. "She's 5-9 or

With only one senior and
two juniors on the team,
Cottondale will be one/
of the youngest teams, in
the area, but Pittman said
she believes her team can
overcome its youth with
its competitive nature and
"Everybody has the same
problem with numbers
and youth, and we're very
young," the coach said.
"But one 'thing I can say
about this group is that
they've got some heart,
and they're willing to do
whatever it takes to play
their best every day. If they
come together, we could
have a good year. That's
my expectation, for us to

Sparano exhales after Dolphins snap slide
The Associated Press
MIAMI There was a moment
on Sunday when Tony Sparano
looked around the Miami Dolphins
sideline, and realized he was getting
mocked by one of his best players.
It was anything but disrespectful.
A few minutes remained, the Dol-
phins' long-awaited first victory of
the year was sealed and Sparano,
was still snarling and growling like
he was unaware of the fact his team
was about to close out a 31-3 win
over Kansas City. And with that, Ja-
son Taylor started laughing at his
boss, sort of telling him to relax and
"That was kind of the message
I got," Sparano said. "Kind of like,
'Coach, we're all right here.'"
For the first time all season, the
Dolphins were all right. More than
all right, actually, winning by 28
points for the first time since Oc-
tober 2009. So while his team had
Monday off as a reward, Sparano
was back at work.
The seven-game losing streak
to start the season was over, and for
now anyway, the talk about his job
status and whether the team should
tank games to try and secure the
best possible draft pick is on hold.
"Beats the hell out of the alter-
native, you know?" Sparano said.
Monday. "I've had to come here for
a lot of these things and it's been
a little different so it's satisfying. I
said it last night, the most satisfy-
ing thing is getting the chance to
see those guys smile. Validate some
of the things that you've been talk-
ing about. And we're 1-7, so that's
where we are, but we won one. We
took a step up this, what appears
to be a giant mountain. Sometimes
the mountain ain't so giant."
Everything clicked. Matt Moore
completed 17 of 23 passes for 244
yards and three touchdowns. Bran-
don Marshall caught eight of those
balls for 106 yards and a score.
Reggie Bush nearly had a 100-yard
rushing day for the second straight
week, getting 92 with a touchdown.
The Dolphins got five sacks,
held the Chiefs to 4.4 yards per
play and gave up 13 yards or
less on six different Kansas City
So after Sparano accepted the
game ball in a giddy locker room af-
terward, he told the players he'd see
them Wednesday the sweetest
words an NFL team can hear their
coach say in a Sunday postgame
meeting. Hugs all around, and more
than a few exhales as well.
"It was absolutely great to get a
little reward for all the work we've
-put in, just to have that feeling of
getting a win under your belt,"
Moore said. "I think guys now un-
derstand that, 'Yeah we can do this,'
and they're hungry and we're going
to enjoy this one and get ready for
The Redskins (3-5) visit Miami on
Sparano said he expects
Vontae Davis, who was not with the
team in Kansas City, to be back this
week. He lauded the work of sev-
eral players in particular on Mon-
day, a list including the predictable
choices Bush, Moore, Marshall,
Anthony Fasano and maybe
the not-so-expected ones such as
Charles Clay, Davone Bess and Je-
"We handled the circumstances
the best we can handle circum-
stances going into that foot-
ball game yesterday," Sparano

Monday night after a brief
battle with liver cancer at
67, will forever be associ-

boxing would ever dream

"I will always remem-

admiration," Ali said in a
statement. "My sympathy

twice in the heart of New

In their last fight in Ma-

punches with a fervor that

he told The Associated

of the death shortly after

his later years and his
speech slurred by the
toll of punches taken in
the ring, Frazier was still

There had to be a third

the two met in Manila in
a fight that will long be
seared in boxing history.
Frazier went after Ali
round after round, landing
his left hook with regular-

Ali responded with left

Official tells AP support for Paterno eroding
The Associated Press
STATE COLLEGE, Pa.
- Joe Paterno's support
among the Penn State
board of trustees was de-
scribed as "eroding" Tues-
day, threatening to end the
84-year-old coach's career
amid a child sex-abuse
scandal involving a former
assistant and one-time
Person familiarwith the
trustees' discussions and
who used the term "erod-
ing" said it was unclear
what the consequences for
Paterno will be and that a
decision could be rendered
before the board meets on
Penn State President
Graham Spanier also has
lost support among the
Board of Trustees, the per-
son said, but again, how
much was unclear.
Paterno's son, Scott, said
his father hasn't spoken
with Penn State officials
or trustees about stepping
down. Addressing report-
ers outside his father's
house, he said Joe Paterno
plans to not only coach in
Saturday's game against
Nebraska, but for the long
"No one has asked Joe to
resign," Scott Paterno told
The Associated Press in a
canceled Paterno's weekly
news conference during
which he was expected to
field questions about the
sex abuse scandal involv-
ing former defensive co-
ordinator Jerry Sandusky.
The former defensive co-
ordinator on Paterno's two
teams in the 1980s was ar-
rested Saturday on charges
of sexually abusing eight
boys over 15 years.
Scott Paterno said the
decision to cancel was
made by Spanier's office,
and that his father was
"I know you guys have a
lot of questions. I was hop-
ing I could answer them
today. We'll try to do it as
soon as we can," Joe Pa-
terno said to a group of
reporters as he got into
his car. About a dozen
students stood nearby,
chanting, "We love you,
A second person
familiar with the board's
discussions said it was
focused on the horrific
aspects of the charges
against Sandusky; two
university officials have
also been charged in the
scandal, accused of failing
to notify authorities when
told Sandusky had assault-
ed a boy in a shower used
by the football team.
Trustee David Joyner
said he was unaware if any
decision had been made
on Paterno's future.
Authorities have said
that Paterno, who testified
in the grand jury proceed-
ings that led to the charges
against Sandusky, is not a
target of the investigation.
But the state police com-
missioner has chastised
him and other school offi-
cials for not doing enough

The Pittsburgh Tribune-
Review, in an editorial,
also called on Paterno and
Spanier to both resign.
A person familiar with

that the former coach long

across the street from the
Penn State football team's
building, and that he was
on campus as recently as a

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov.
22) Important matters
you negotiate will work out
to everyone's satisfaction if
you get everyone playing
off the same sheet notes.
Show them how to make
beautiful music together.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-
Dec. 21) Two ambitions
that have been looking
questionable can easily be
fulfilled if you keep your
eyes on the prize.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan.
19) If you gamble on
yourself, it'll be OK, but
wagering on others could
be another story.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb.
19) If you have an impor-
tant matter hanging fire,
it behooves you to press
for closure while things
are going your way. Don't
hesitate to be firm in your
PISCES (Feb. 20-March
20) You have a special
ability to sway others to
your way of thinking and
doing things. You can eas-
ily convince them to back
you in whatever important
project you choose.
ARIES (March 21-April
19) Don't waste the day
playing or doing nothing,
because it could be one of
your better times for devel-
TAURUS (April 20-May 20)
- Whether you're the quiet
type or one who makes a lot
of noise, your presence is
apt to be far more strongly
felt than usual. You're likely
to make a statement that
won't go unnoticed.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20)
- This is clearly a day to sit
down and work on money-
CANCER (June 21-July 22)

ing how essential it is to be

onward, you should find
some challenging outlets
that stimulate you both
physically and mentally.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct.23)-
This could be an extremely
productive day for you, but
not necessarily from your
Dear Annie: My 19-year-old daughter,
"Shawna," is dating an 18-year-old boy
who is abusive of her. She lives with him
and his family. She has an 18-month-old
son, and my wife and I have custody, not
only because she felt she was too young
to raise him, but because she doesn't
want him around her boyfriend.
Since Shawna has been living there, she
only talks to us when she needs some-
thing. We haven't seen her in almost a
month. We recently found out that she is
drinking, doing drugs and stealing. She
talks about suicide a lot anrd cuts herself.
She refuses to leave her boyfriend. He
told her to choose between him and the
baby, and she chose him. The police have
been called about their fighting several
Last month, the boyfriend was arrested
for theft and spent nine days in jail. Then
he threatened her, insisting she pay his
bail by any means necessary, so she stole
At the bridge table, it is very easy to play
fectly tomorrow, after you know where a
the cards lie. The secret of success is ma]
your contract today, before you have seei
of your opponents' cards. In this six-no-tnr
contract, how should South plan the play a
West leads the spade 10?
North used Stayman to see if there was a
heart fit, because then six hearts would pr
ably have been a better contract than six
trump. South starts with 11 top tricks:
spades, two hearts, three diamonds and 1
clubs. The best chance for another winne
to find East with the heart queen. So decl
covers the spade 10 with dummy's jack
captures East's king with his ace. He then le
a club to the dummy and plays a low heal
Here the finesse wins, but what would dec
er do if West produced the heart queen and
another spade? Now there would be only
chance: a red-suit squeeze. South must h
that the opponent with four (or more)
monds also holds four (or more) hearts. Wai
ing only for heart discards, declarer would
the second spade on the board, play a heal
his king, cash the other three clubs ending
the board, and take the heart ace. Is the hi
six high? If it is, cash it and claim. If not, I
out the diamonds, hoping that the six takes
money from her grandmother. As soon
as he was released, things went back to
the way they were.
I have a protection order on this boy
because of the threats he has made
against my family and me. But what can
we do to get help for Shawna?
-WORRIED DAD IN GARY, IND.
Dear Dad: It is an unfortunate truth that
once a child is a legal adult, there isn't
much you can do to protect them from
a situation of their own choosing. We
urge you to stay in touch with Shawna as
much as possible and let her know you
will be there for her when she needs you.
Don't criticize her abusive boyfriend,
but do tell her she deserves to be treated
better and you hope someday she will
realize that for herself. Give her the num-
ber of the National Domestic Violence
