TALLAHASSEE A Florida lawmaker says
prison employees in. his district told him
the Department of Corrections last year had
moved sicker and more-expensive inmates out
of facilities the state was trying to privatize.
Rep. Paige Kreegbl's comment came Thurs-
day at a House workshop on prison privati-

Gorda Republican that such moves would
be determined by the contract with a private
Private prisons in other states have negotiat-
ed deals restricting what kind of inmates they
will take. Those who are older or have illnesses
such as HIV infection usually cost more to care
for than younger and healthier inmates.
The state is trying to privatize about 30 state
prison facilities in South Florida. That plan was
struck down by a judge but is under appeal.

Find time to get away to the beaches
BYTHOMAS VINCENT MURPHY
t's getting closer to the time
when thousands of tour-
ists will be driving along our
roadways and flying into our part
of the country to spend time on
the beaches in our section of the
I wasn't aware of this part of the
country until my brothers and our
families made a point of getting
out of the big cities and heading to
the beach twice a year. After some
research, we found that some of the
best and most beautiful beaches
in the world were in the Northwest
Florida area of the country.
We found out for ourselves that
the slogan "The most beautiful
beaches in the world" couldn't be
too far from the truth. There prob-
ably aren't very many places where
you can appreciate the countryside
and many waterways, and also ex-
perience awesome beaches in the
same area, as we can in our vicinity.
Since moving to this part of the
country, I have noticed that many
of the citizens living here either
aren't interested in the beaches,
special this part of
S our country is. So
each year around
this time, when I
start seeing the com-
Thomas mercials promoting
MUrphy and advertising our
area to those in other
parts of the country, I
feel obligated to remind you what a
fantastic area we reside in.
People from all over the United
States and other parts of the world
come to our neck of the woods to
find relaxation, and to enjoy the
atmosphere; whether through hik-
ing in one of our state parks while
observing our natural resources, or
by spending time on our beaches.
Many spend large sums of money
for transportation and lodging to
enjoy some of the things that we
can enjoy in our natural surround-
ings and have access to each day.
Young folks come to our beaches

This is a time in our history
when the economic situation has
negatively affected millions of our
people. We, in our section of the
world, have not been immune to
these tough times. However, we
have some of the best assets one
could ask for, right in our own
neighborhood, when it comes to
finding ways to relax, unwind and
help rid ourselves of some of the
pressures life can bring.
Everyone needs to find time to
get away from the everyday rou-

and invigorate themselves. Taking
a vacation to different parts of our
country and the world is great if
you have the time and means to do
so; but try not to overlook the fact
that in this part of the world we are

INHERITING A SPOUSE'S IRA
A wife or husband is often the. sole beneficiary of a
deceased spouse's IRA. Even if the first to die was over
7012 and had begun taking distributions, the inheritor
is often able to delay distribution of the funds until he
or she reaches 70V2. (Of course, the funds are available
If the surviving spouse retitles the IRA to his or her own
name, or even rolls it over to an existing IRA, it becomes
that person's IRA to name new beneficiaries and to
delay distribution until age 70V2.
If the account stays in the name of the deceased spouse,
under the beneficiary rules, the survivor will have to
begin taking RMDs by the end of the year following the
death. The survivor could name new beneficiaries, but
would have to continue taking RMDs based on his or
her single life expectancy in the IRA's Life Expectancy

From the Tampa Tribune
Give state contracts
an expert once-over
Being fast should not be confused with being
efficient, particularly when it comes to
spending the public's money. So lawmakers
should see the state's chief financial officer, Jeff
Atwater, is right that empowering his agency to
review state contracts and stop faulty ones could save
the state millions of dollars.
Another set of eyes on state deals means another
layer of bureaucracy between the time a plan is made
and when it actually gets done. His proposal may
run into ideological opposition from people who
instinctively think smaller is better.
But Atwater has strong evidence on his side.
Florida has no uniform standards for contracts.
State employees spending state money have no clear
guidelines, he says, so oversight is fragmented and
The state's CFO can't be sure that taxpayers' money
is being spent with care. But he has good reason to
suspect that loosely worded contracts are costing the
state lots of money.
His misgiving is based on a review of 364 contracts
and grant agreements, each worth at least $1 million,
for the 2010-11 fiscal year. After putting the fine print
in each contract under his magnifying glass, Atwater
reports that 26 percent had problems that were
A good, tight contract, Atwater says, will clearly
define the scope of'work. It will say exactly what
product or service is to be delivered. It will set
standards for quality and impose deadlines. It will
make clear what financial consequences will be
triggered by unacceptable performance.
These are not radical concepts. They're the kind
of things a smart homeowner would get in writing .
before hiring a contractor to make a major repair.
"Are we getting what we think we're paying for?"
Atwater asks. In order to have the information he
needs to answer that question, he is asking for the
power to evaluate all contracts of $50,000 or more
and to recommend changes. If he finds holes in a
contract, Atwater would reject it and send it back
to the submitting agency to be rewritten. He would
not take the contract-writing power away from other
He estimates the state is writing about $13 billion a
year in questionable contracts but is unsure exactly
how much could be saved. He thinks it would be a big
"There are tremendous savings to be had," he tells
He also wants state agencies to be able to explain
to losing bidders why someone else won and what
they could do to be more competitive next time.
That could encourage more and better bids and save
taxpayers even more money.
A large part of the state budget is spent on goods
and services. It's more than the state spends on
salaries. There are contracts for janitorial service,
printing, fuel, communications, medical care, rent,
roads, consulting, food and repairs. The list goes on
and on. .
Initially the requirement might slow the process
a bit, but it shouldn't take state bureaucrats long to
learn how to write contracts right. Atwater proposes
training sessions that lead to certifying contract
managers. Someone who refuses to follow the
guidelines would lose certification and, along with it,
the authorization to spend state money. .
Once the sloppy contracts are being caught and
rejected, fewer will be written, and Atwater's review
will speed up as the cost of running the state goes
down. Lawmakers should approve the change to
bring more accountability and oversight to state

Truth as a casualty of political warfare
Over the holidays, one of
my dearest Republican
relatives said, "Well, it's too
bad Obama turned out to be such
Then, she added in a tone
between sadness and sarcasm,
"I'm sure most people wouldn't
have voted for him if they'd
What? I paused to process her
calm declaration and realized that
what I hear- and discount as
political potshots in a presidential
campaign have become in the
ears of some voters reliable
That surprised me, but it
shouldn't have. The old saying
that "the first casualty of war is
truth" also applies to political
warfare. The barrage against
President Barack Obama started
before he took office and has
continued nonstop. Obama's
decision largely to ignore the
charges just allows them to fester
Newt Gingrich's latest attacks
on Obama as "the greatest food-
stamp president in American
history" are classic Gingrich
portrays Obama as socialist in
chief, and Obama refuses to
knock down the notion that he
favors encouraging dependency
on the state.
No wonder that 10 months
before the election, half the voters
surveyed in the latest New York
Times and CBS News poll said
Obama doesn't have the same
priorities for the country that they
The economy remains the
country's No. 1 issue, and 60
percent think Obama has done
nothing to improve it. Most
Americans believe the country is
headed in the wrong direction.
And, confirming my holiday
conversation, the poll also found
that better than one in four voters
-26 percent believe Obama's
policies are socialist. Twenty-two
percent say his policies are liberal
and 28 percent moderate.
If you've listened to the
contenders sniping at each other,
you know it's now a supreme
knock to call someone running
for president a moderate. Despite
all this, polls consistently find
that Obama would beat all the
Republican presidential hopefuls
- except one. He ties with Mitt
Romney, who's most likely to be
his rival in November.
And here's where it gets really
interesting. Obama ties with
Romney even though most voters
say they lack a clear idea about
what Obama wants to accomplish
in a second term.
In his State of the Union address
Tuesday night. Obama will outline
his policy goals for the coming
year, but implicit will be his plans
for a second term. Hoping to
rekindle the sparks of 2008, he'll
appeal to the middle class and
ally himself with the 99 percent.
It's a tough sell for a president
who seems more professorial
than populist. But the best
thing Obama has going for him
is the contrast with Romney,
whose comments this week that
he probably paid a 15 percent
personal tax rate set him even
farther apart from ordinary
people than Obama.
For whatever reason, Obama
has been reluctant to mention
poverty, even as the ranks of the
poor expand. He could use his
primetime speech to explain why
everyone benefits from a strong
safety net. He could tell about
policy changes in the George
W. Bush presidency that led to
increases in the food stamp rolls
and trace how the economic
slump intensified need. He could
call on the Republicans to help,
rather than demonize, the poor.
In 2008, voters were willing
to buy the promise of hope and
change. When Caroline Kennedy
endorsed Obama in an op-ed in
the Times on Jan. 27, 2008, she
"I want a president
who understands that his
responsibility is to articulate a
vision and encourage others to
achieve it; who holds himself, and
those around him. to the highest
ethical standards; who appeals
to the hopes of those who still
believe in the American Dream,
and those around the world who
still believe in the American ideal:
and who can lift our spirits, and
make us believe again that our
country needs every one of us to
That's still a good job
description for president in 2012.
Ms. Kennedy also wrote that
Obama would inspire in people
"a sense of possibility" that they
have the power to shape their
own future. It hasn't worked out
that way. Yet.
To shape his own future, Obama
needs to inspire a new sense of
individual possibility, not imply
dependency that his enemies will

Since the CRAwas established in 1993,
it has been budgeted in large part with
the year-to-year incremental tax in-

Last year, county taxes paid by prop-

for about $105,000 paid into the fund.

closure of Miami consulate

MIAMI At a park in downtown Mi-
ami, alongside a statue of their coun-
try-'s liberator, Venezuelans gathered
Saturday to protest the closing of their
consulate, an action they say will cause
major problems for the thousands of
\enezuelans living in Florida, Georgia
and the Carolinas.
Children, students, worried parents
and elderly persons held up' signs de-
nouncing Venezuelan President Hugo
C(havez's decision to close the Miami
office following the expulsion of Consul
GeneralLivia Acosta Noguera.
"Issuing passports is an obligation,
not a caprice," read one sign.
"Chavez: How will I vote for yop how?"
"1 he measure they took is not affecting
the United States, but the Venezuelans,'

'here depends on the consulate to renew

"There are a lot of things necessary

Venezuelans here are also concerned
about how they will register to vote and
participate in the coming presidential
elections, in which Chavez is seeking
another six-year term. Venezuela's Na-
tional Electoral Council has guaranteed
that Venezuelans living in Florida will
be able to vote in the Feb. 12 opposition
primary, though protesters said they
had not been given any information.

St. Michael church named minor basilica by Vatican
The Associated Press
PENSACOLA Pensacola's oldest
Catholic church has been designated
one of the nation's 72 minor basilicas
under an order by Pope Benedict XVI.
The parish of St. Michael the Arch-
angel, which traces is roots to the 16th
century exploration of Northwest Flori-
da, was canonically established in 1781.
The current church building, located at
the southwest comer of Palafox and
Chase streets, was constructed in 1886.
"It's a very nice honor for the area and
for the local church," Monsignor Luke
The parish submitted the application
to the Vatican for the basilica designa-
tion in 2003 with the hopes of receiving

sary celebration in 2009.
"Unfortunately, it didn't happen
then," Hunt said. "One of our priests in
Rome asked about it, and it was imme-
diately acted on."
Basilica is an honor bestowed on a
church deemed by the pope to have
historical and spiritual importance.
Churches are categorized as either
major or minor.
The Catholic Church's four major
basilicas are lodated in Rome.
There are more than 1,500 minor ba-
silicas around the world, in addition
to those in the United States. The clos-
est minor basilica to St. Michael is the
Cathedral Basilica of the Immaculate
Conception in Mobile, built in 1850

Pirates hold off Gators
,BY DUSTIN KENT
The Sneads Pirates picked up one
of its most impressive road victories
of the season Friday night in Wewa-
hitchka, beating the Gators 61-57 to
set up a big match-up with Gracev-
ille on Tuesday.
With the win, the Pirates improved
to 10-7 overall and 7-3 in District
3-1A, which puts them in a tie with
Graceville for the runner-up posi-
tion in the league standings.
Sneads will host Graceville on
l uesdi. at 7 p.m.
But Friday it was the road for the
Pirates, where they were just 2-2 in
league games coming in.
However, Sneads was in control all
night against a Gators team that has
been exceptional in their home gym.
The Pirates led 17-10 through one
quarter and took a 33-24 lead into
the halftime break.
Sneads extended its edge to 11 go-
ing into the fourth, but the Gators
charged back late to cut the mar-
gin to two at 59-57 in the waning
But John Locke made two free
throws with three seconds remain-
ing to put the game away.
"I thought we played very well
overall, especially in the first three
quarters," Sneads coach Kelvin
Johnson said after the game. "That's
about as good as we've played all
The finish wasn't quite as impres-
sive as the start, as the Pirates missed
-' .t consecutive free throws in the
fourth quarter before Locke's final
two sealed the win.
The senior Locke finished ivth 25
points to lead SHS, while Troy Du-
rant added 13, and Darius Williams
Johnson said he couldn't have been
more pleased with his team's over-
all effort against a much improved
"This isn't a typical Wewa team like
they've had in the last few-years,"
the coach said. "Just by looking at
them, they're probably the most im-
pressive team in the district just by
physical appearance. They're big,
fast, and very quick. They had only

portantly it puts Graceville in position to
clinch District 3-lAs second seed for the
Feb. 7-10 district tournament in Ponce De
Graceville is now dead even with Sneads

Only Cottondale, which has already
clinched the top spot, will get a first
round bye, but the No. 2 gets a, first round
match-up with PDL, which has not won a
district game.this season.
Evidence of why Graceville and Sneads
would covet the No. 2 spot could be found
in Friday's game, as the Tigers simply over-
whelmed the overmatched PDL team.
Graceville led 11-4 through one quarter,
but got six straight points to start the sec-

Dolphins' coaching job
The Associated Press
MIAMI -A moflth ofwreniching emo-
tion for Green Bay Packers offensive
coordinator Joe Philbin took a positive
turn Friday when he landed the Miami
Dolphins' head coaching job.
The deal was sealed less than two
weeks after Philbin's 21-year-old son
drowned in an icy Wisconsin river.
Philbin, who has never been-a head
coach, first interviewed with the Dol-
phins on Jan. 7. The body of son NMi-
chael, one of Philbin's six children, was
recovered the nea day in Oshkosh.
After spending a week away from the
Packers, Philbin rejoined the team last
Sunday for its divisional playoff loss to
the New York Giants.
Philbin has been with Green Bay since
2003 and has been offensive coordina-
tor since 2007. Coach Mike McCarthy
called the plays, but Philbin put togeth-
er the game plan.
The Dolphins' top choice, leff Fisher,
turned them down a week ago to be-
come coach of the St. Louis Rams. Nli-
ami owner Stephen Ross arid general
manager leff Ireland then conducted a
second- round of interviews this week,
with Philbin, Denver Broncos offen-
sive coordinator Mike McCoy and Todd
Bowles, Miami's interim coach at the
end of the season.
Ross fired Tony Sparano last month
with three games to go in his fourth year
as the Dolphins' coach.When the search
for a new coach began, Ross said he
would like to give,the franchise much-
needed stability b\ hiring "a voting Don
Instead he chose the 50-.year-old Phil-
bin. who has 28 years of coaching expe-
rience, including 19 years in college.
With Philbin's help, the Packers have
ranked in the top 10 in the NFL in yard-
age each of the past fix e seasons, includ-
ing third in 2011. A year ago' they won
the Super Bowl.
The hiring might give the Dolphins an
edge if they decide to pursue Packers
backup quarterback Mart Flynn. who
becomes a free agent this offseason.
Flynm set Packers records with 480 yards
passing and six touchdowns in their

Taking the long way home
( T'll get home in less than
Five hours," said a buddy
Sof mine as he prepared
to depart from fishing camp.
"How long will it take you?"
"I'm going back on the inter-
state," offered another. "I'll pull
into my driveway a little after
"Me, too," a third said. "One
quick stop for gas is all I'll have
to make. How about you, Bob?"
"Well, I don't know," I an-
swered, "Let's just say my trip
will likely take a mite longer than
any of yours."
He shouldn't have even asked.
Heck, they all knew my traveling
habits. I'd be taking the long way
Now, I certainly understand
that trip duration and the short-
est distance between two points
are often valid considerations.
Sometimes it's necessary to
shave time. If we're not care-
ful, though, that-can become
an obsession. On this occasion,
for instance, none of our party
for whom the shortest route
back home seemed so vitally
important had anything pressing
awaiting him there. Nothing, at
least, that a couple of extra hours
on the road might affect. Yet, for
some reason, they all exhibited
a burning compulsion to load
up, gas up, crank up, and motor
homeward as fast as humanly
Not me, thank you. I'll take the
backroads, the "blue highways,"
the thoroughfares and trails
winding through, not around,
the forests and farmlands and
small towns. Give me roads with
stops and pull-overs and detours
where I might want to see a
sight, take a picture, or just plain
go for going's sake. Can't give you
a logical reason I'm like that. It's
just the way I'm wired.
I've been taking the long way
home most of my life. As a child,
if the fish weren't biting in the
creek, I often walked a mile or
two out of my way to hunt ar-
rowheads in some fallow field
before returning to "civilization."
My boyhood buddies and I were
notorious for leaving the beaten
paths homeward to gather
plums at abandoned home-
sites or _:.-r ourselves with fai
blackberries that grew otherwise
undisturbed in some out-of-
the-way locale. Sometimes we'd
detour for no other reason than
to gawk at huge hornets' nests or
amble through patches of bright
wildflowers. Some of the flowers,
by the way, we'd pick to take
backwith us. Pretty, "thoughtful"
mama-gifts always tempered the
we were bound to receive.
Once, as a high-school senior, I
made a long-way-home trek to a
cypress pond just to lay eyes on
a free-roaming alligator. Gators
were scarce in 1970. Seeing one
was a "wonderment" I saw two
that evening. What if I'd missed
that? Likewise, a couple of weeks
ago, if I'd been in too big a hurry
to get back to my truck after an
afternoon birding hike, I might
have missed seeing that elusive
grasshopper sparrow in the
brush a few yards off the trail.
Yep, just a couple of weeks ago.
I've never outgrown it.
Awhile back, Interstate 81
might have shaved a lot of time
off a homeward-bound trip
southward through western Vir-
ginia. It would also have routed
me past Troutville, on old U.S.
11, where I met a toothless old
man who grew his own chew-
ing tobacco and told wonder-
ful lies about big smallmouth
bass. Years before, 1-75 would
have taken me around Reliance,
Tennessee and the Cherokee
National Forest, not to mention
some mighty good trout fishing
and a lady who sold me a hunk
of real hoop cheese and a thick
slice ofbaloney she cut off the
log herself. Both encounters
wound up costing me an extra
day's travel. Such a small price
The long way home continues
to beckon today. As in, "Let me
see what's just around that next
bend in the river before I head
in" or "I'll take this trail here. It'll
carry me around to that big pool
just below the waterfall" or "Hey,
let's turn off on that little road
about a mile up ahead." Why?
Why not? It's going in the same
direction we are.
Yep, the express routes and the
fast lanes have their places and
sometimes even I can't avoid
them. But the long way back?
Well, I'll take it whenever I can. If
I don't, I'll wish I had.
Ya'll come join me sometime.
We'll even bring back some
wildflowers, just in case.

Area fishing slows down
. Bass fishing is fair. The largest concen-
trations of largemouths can be found on
creek points and along creek bends. Seek
the clearest water available up the creeks
and use Texas-rigged worms. Near grass
beds use jerkbaits and floating stickbaits
for the best results. Frog-type lures may
pay off in grass and around visible wood
structure. When using worms, go with
the lightest weight possible.*
Crappies are doing well on live min-
nows for some anglers. As a rule, they are
still deep, but have shown signs recently
of shallowing up a bit. Target the shad
schools to locate the crappies.
Warm-water fishes such as bream
and catfish are still showing few signs of
Bass fishing is fair along the banks with
jigs. Fish as close as possible to the bank-
side cover. Deep-running crankbaits may
work on main-lake points and spoons
can pay off up the creeks on ledges.
Texas-rigged lizards have worked fairly
well on points and in rocky structure.
Also try Carolina-rigged worm in indark
colors and fish them very slowly for the
best results. Slow-rolled spinnerbaits are,
Crappies are slow to bite right now.
Most are suspended deep and reluctant
to get active. Minnows drop-fished in
deep brush may produce some minimal
catches. On a positive note, individual
fish sizes are good.
All other species are extremely slow.
Bass fishing is slow. Continue to fish
ledges.along channel bends in spots
where the channel curves near the bank..
Fish spoons or jig-and-pig combos and
work the baits very slowly. Bass fishing
up the creeks has become less produc-
tive as well. The bite there is still sporadic
and the creeks are producing ery few
fish on worms and crankbaits. Fish-
ing is slow near sandbars and bankside
Catfishing can be fair up and down-
river. For larger cats, go downstream and
fish bluff walls near river bends. Tailiva-
ter catfishing is slow to fair. Use frozen
shad, worms. or prepared baits.
Crappies, though scattered, will bite
moderately well when concentrations of
fish can be located.
Bream fishing is very slow.

Marianna stumbles at home to Bay, 55-48
BY DUSTIN KENT ,
After picking up perhaps
their biggest win of the
season on Tuesday, an 86-
82 overtime district victory
over the Walton Braves, the
Marianna Bulldogs stum-
bled Thursday at home,
falling to Bay High 55-48.
Bay led 21-16 at halftime
Sand extended the lead to
nine in the third period. :
The Bulldogs cut. the
margin to four late in
the fourth quarter and
had possession, but they
turned the ball over with
30 seconds to play, and the
Tornadoes made their free
throws to ice the game.
"We just- got out-
toughed, out-hustled, and
coach Travis Blanton said
after the game. "I just don't
think we were mnenially
prepared to play, and we
sort of got took behind the
woodshed by a bunch of
ninth graders playing var-
sity We never got into the
game until late."
Blanton did give credit
to the Tornadoes, who he
said would be a very:diffi-
cult team to match up with
in the coming years.
"Whoever plays Bah
High this year better beat
them while they can be-'
cause they're going to be
really good'in the future,"
he said. "My hat goes off
to them. Coach iMichaell
Grady has done a wonder-
ful job with those kids."
DJ Granberry had 11
points to lead Marianna,
with Quay Royster adding
But the Bulldogs were
unable to get it done
defensively and on the
boards for much of the
us and had several second
chances and extra posses-
sions off of missed shots,"
Blanton said. "They just
got to the offensive glass
and kept getting multiple
shots at the basket and
that hurt us. At this point
in the season, that's some-
thing that's got to be taken

The Associated Press
LO)NDON The St. Louis Rams
took the first step to becoming Brit-
ain's "home" team Friday, agreeing
to play a regular-season NFL game
in London in each of the next three
And first up are the New England
Patriots, who are two wins from an-
other Super Bowl title.
The Rams and Patriots meet at
Wembley on Oct. 28, about two
months after the closing ceremoryi
of the London Olympics. That will
be followed by games at Wembley
against undetermined opponents in
2013 and 2014.
The Rams are. owned by Stan
Kroenke, who is also the major-
ity shareholder in the English soc-
cer club Arsenal. The team will.give
up home games in St. Louis for the'
three seasons they are in London.
"We've seen first-hand the in-
creased popularity of the NFL not
only in London but throughout Eu-
rope," Kroenke said in a statement-.
"To play a role in that growth over
the next three years will be'incred-
ible and is a testament to the man'y
good things happening not only
in the NFL but also in the St. Louis
Rams orear's ationtest will."
This year's contest will be the sixth
regular-season game at Wembley.
But despite plans to bring a second
game to Britain starting next season,
the NFL said the Rains-Patriots date
would be the only one in 2012.
"This year is a very competitive
year for sport in the UK, especially
with the Olympics in London," NF-
LUK managing director Alistair,
Kirkwood said. "Also, with the Rams
having made an unprecedented
commitment to playing in the UK
for the ne:,t thuee \ears, \ve wanted
to focus on them as our 'home' team.
wilthloiut another game taking place.
"\\e would like to increase beyond
one game per year as soonld as pos-
sible and the five-year commitment
by the owners to playing in the UK,
allows us to make that decision when
w\e feel it is appropriate."
NFL owners agreed last year to
play regular-;eason games in the UK
for the rine: five seasons. The league
said Friday all the games would be
played at \'Vembley. NFL Commis-
sioner Roger Goodell.has repeatedly
spoken of the possibility,of a full-
time franchise in the UK one day.
The Rams finished 2-14 this sea-
son, lied for the NFL's "worst. and'
ha-e wvon only 15 games the last five
seasons. Last week, the team hired
leH Fisher as coach to replace the
fired Steve Spagnuoio.
The NFL first played atWembley in
2007, with the NewYork Giants beat-
ing the Miami Dolphins 13-10. Since
then, seven other teams have visited
Britain, with the Tampa Bay Bucca-
neers making the trip twice.
The Patriots have already been to
London. beating the Bucs 35-7 in
2009. The Bucs returned this season,
losing to the Chicago Bears 24-18 in
October --the first of the Wembley
games that wasn't a sellout.
This season, Lhe Patriot, have been
one of the best teams in the league.
Led by Tom Brady, they will face mhe
Baltimore Ravens on Sunday in the
_kFC championship with a chance
to reach their fifth Super Bowil in the
last 11 years.
And Patriots oi-ner Robert Kraft
is already looking forward to cornm-
ing back to London. especially since
.they again don't have to give up a
"For us in a way it is like, I think,
having another home game. we have
such a large fan base there," Kraft
said. "\Ve have had a group of fans
come over from the ilK and come
here to a game each year and it is a
tremen-dous fan base. Happ-y ie \ill

Baby boomers: Don't forget to care for your eyes as you age
.(ARA) The baby boomer generation makes up an
estimated 76 million people roughly one-fourth of the
U.S. population. This means that either you or someone
you love is part of this aging group. According to. Eye
on the Boomer, a recent survey by the Ocular Nutrition
Society, almost as many baby boomers say they worry
about losing their vision as those that say they worry about
having heart disease or cancer. What's more, 78 percent of
those surveyed ranked vision as the most important of the
five senses. Yet, more than half of the survey respondents
ages 45-65 said they don't typically have a recommended
annual eye exam, and even fewer are aware of important
nutrients that can, play a key role in eye health.
Experts recommend that disease prevention, including
lifestyle modification, attention to dietary intake and
vitamin supplementation must become a greater focus of
primary vision care. Studies indicate that proper nutrition
promotes healthy eyes. however many American diets
are found to be deficient of the critical nutrients that help
protect eye health.
"If people are at risk for heart disease they typically
make; lifestyle modifications," says Dr. Jeffrey Anshel,
president of the Ocular Nutritionri Society. "This survey
found that people are as concerned about their eyes but
do not know the simple steps they can incorporate into
their daily lives to take care of them."
*Vitamin supplements can be used for your eyes,
While people take a variety of different supplements
to support their health, vitamins specifically formulated
to help protect the eyes are often not in the mix and
for many people, they should be. While more than half of
those surveyed are taking supplements to protect their
joints, bones or heart health only 18 percent say they take
supplements to support their eye health.
"As we grow older, the need for certain vitamins
and nutrients to support the eye increases the survey
revealed low awareness of these essential nutrients,"
says Anshel of nutrients like omega-3 fatty acids, lutein
and zeaxanthin. He adds that there is a "need for greater
education on the lifestyle modifications that baby boomers
can incorporate into their daily lives, -including proper
nutrition, to help safeguard eye health as they age."
To help protect eye health as they age, Anshel
recommends people aged 45-65 take the following steps:
* Slop smoking, exercise regularly and wear sunglasses
with UV protection
* Make an annual appointment with an eye doctor
* Eat foods rich in eye healthy nutrients, such as tuna
or salmon for omega-3s and spinach, kale and broccoli
containing lutein and zeaxanthin
*To help overcome shprtialls in the diet consider a vitamin
supplement specifically-fofriulated for eye health

well as eye health, please visit ocularnutritionsociety.org.

Legendary blues singer
Etta James dies in Calif.
The Associated Press
LOS ANGELES Etta James' perfor-
mance of the enduring classic "At Last"
was the embodiment of refined soul:
Angelic-sounding strings harkened the
arrival of her passionate yet measured
vocals as she sang tenderly about a love
finally realized after a long and patient
In real life, little about James was as gen-
teel as that song. The platinum blonde's
first hit was a saucy R&B number about
sex, and she was known as a hell-raiser
who had tempestuous relationships with
her family, her men and the music indus-
try. Then she spent years battling a drug
addiction that she admitted sapped away
at her great talents.
The 73-year-old died on Friday at Riv-
erside Community Hospital from com-
plications of leukemia, with her husband
and sons at her side, her manager, Lupe
De Leon said.
"It's a tremendous loss for her fans
around the world," he said. "She'll be
missed. A great American singer. Her mu-
sic defied category."
James' spirit could not be contained
- perhaps that's what made her so mag-
netic in music; it is surely what made her
so dynamic as one of R&B, blues and rock
'n' roll's underrated legends.
"The bad girls ... had the look that I
liked," she wrote in her 1995 autobiog-
raphy, "Rage to Survive." "I wanted to be
rare, I wanted to be noticed, I wanted to
be exotic as. a Cotton Club chorus girl,
and I wanted to be obvious as the most
flamboyant hooker on the street. I just
wanted to be."
"Etta James was a pioneer. Her ever-
changing sound has influenced rock and
roll, rhythm and blues, pop, soul and
jazz artists, marking her place as one of
the most important female artists of our
time," said Rock and Roll Hall of Fame
President and CEO Terry Stewart.

Answer: Theodore (Jerry
Mathers) attended Grant

in the fictitious com-

nickname, "Beaxer," came
about because his older
brother, \Vally LTony Dow).,
was unable as a youngster

Dear Annie: Six months ago, I was
fired for stealing from my job. I was too
embarrassed to tell anyone, so I lied to
my parents, my friends, everybody. I told
them I quit so I could go back to school.
Then I lost my house because I didn't,
have the money to pay the mortgage. My
parents told me that I'm almost 40 and
need to stand on my own two feet. They
wouldn't let me move in with them. My
best friend felt sorry for me and said I
could camp out in her guest room until I
got back on my feet.,
In that time, I've fallen in love with
her husband. I couldn't help it. "Alex"
is amazing smart, charming, kind,
athletic, attractive, the total package.
But it makes me uncomfortable to see
him being so affectionate with his wife,
always holding her hand and stroking
her hair. I can't figure out why their mar-
riage has lasted 10 years. He's outgoing,
and she's shy. She's also rather plain. Alex
doesn't seem to realize that he could,
Many people consider 13 to be an unlucky
number. Bridge players cannot have that su-
perstition, because they hold 13 cards and play
out 13 tricks. Also, it is not always unlucky to
have insufficient tricks at the end 6f a deal.
The unsuperstitious players, who happily
count to 13, tend to do well. This grand slam is a
good example. How would you try to make sev-
en spades after West irritatingly leads a trump?
The bidding is sensible. Yes, there might be
an unavoidable late heart or club loser, but
how will North ever find out? When you are in a
grand slam, there is no point in counting losers,
because you cannot afford any. Just try to find
13 tricks. Here, outside spades, you have five
winners: the ace-king of hearts, the diamond
ace and the ace-king of clubs. So you must win
eight trump tricks. Luckily all your trumps are
high, so there is no risk of an overruff. However,
before crossruffing, cash all of your side-suit

mond to your ace, then cash dummy's four

and thus a nickname was.

Dear Crazy: You steal from your job, lie

your best friend's husband. Alex is smart
enough to know a good woman wheri
he marries one. The longer you stay in
that house the harder it will be for you.
Get any job, maybe two of them, so you
can afford another place to live, even if it
means multiple roommates. Then take

Isner is out at Australian Open, as are US men
The Associated Press
lia For the first time in
four decades, there will be
no American man in the
fourth round of the Austra-
lian Open. John McEnroe
thinks he knows why.
The seven-time Grand
Slam champion, who is
working as a TV analyst at
Melbourne Park, suspects
a lack of passion.
"You could certainly
wonder whether our guys
are as hungry as some of
the others," McEnroe said
on Fox after John Isner lost
'to 18th-seeded Feliciano
Lopez in the third round
Friday. "It really comes
down to the individual, If
people have heart or de-
sire, that to me is more im-
portant than any shot".
This is the first time no
U.S. player reached the
men's fourth round at the
Australian Open since 1973
eled to the tournament.
Isner, the last American
man left in the singles
draw, lost to Lopez 6-3, 6-7
(3), 6-4, 6-7 (0), 6-1. It was
the 6-foot-9 Isner's second
straight five-set match af-
ter he knocked out David
Nalbandian in a 4-hour,
"It's very ugly, to be hon-
est, to have no one in the
round of 16," Isner said.
"We've got to try to rectify
that next time the big tour-
naments roll around.
"It's very disappointing.
That's not a good effort
from the Americans in this
tournament. I knew going
in today I was the last one
left and I wanted to keep
on going, but just didn't
Instead, Lopez earned
a fourth-round match
against Rafael Nadal, who
won the 2009 Australian
Open and has 10 major
titles to his credit.
The last American man
to win the Australian
Open was Andre Agassi
in 2003.. No. U.S. man has
won a major since Andy
Roddick at the 2003 U.S.
"We've been spoiled
with the success we've
had in the past," McEnroe
At least the Americans
still have Serena Williams,
the 13-time Grand Slam
champion who is on a 16-
match winning streak at
Melbourne Park. She won
titles in 20.09 and 2010
but missed last year be-
cause of injury. On Satur-
day night, the five-time
champion played Greta
Arn of Hungary in the third

about a "healthy jeal-
ousy" contributing to the
There hadn't been four
American men into the
fourth round at the U.S.
Open since 1995.
It didn't last long in Mel-
bourne. Among the best
contenders, No. 8 Mardy
Fish lost to Alejandro Falla
of Colombia in the second
round before Roddick hurt
his right hamstring had
to retire from his second-
round match with former
No. 1 Lleyon Hewitt.
Ryan Harrison took No.
4 Andy Murray to four sets
before losing; Ryan Sweet-
ing lost to No. 5 David Fer-
rer; and Donald Young lost
to qualifier Lukas Lacko.
"People expect us to con-,
tend for Grand Slams,"
McEnroe said. "I think
there's a lot of tennis fans,
but to have an American
contending and winning

Isner on Friday when he
lapsed in the last set after
dominating the fourth-set
"It just got away from
me. Ijust wasn't as sharp as
I needed to be," he said. "It
just kind of spiraled out of
control there, and it just ...
I couldn't climb out of the
hole I dug."
"I honestly felt like it was
more mental than any-
thing," he added. "Just like
the whole match I wasn't
really that sharp."
Now he has to consider
a Davis Cup series next
month against a Swiss
team that could feature
Federer and Stanislas
"That's not an ideal
draw for a first round.
But, yeah, it's going to be
tough," Isner said. "It's
away, and, you know, more
than likely I think if Roger
plays we're probably the

said. Then, "I saw she
