Local residents and others who use or
want to use the section of Lake Seminole
that runs through Jackson County are mak-
ing it clear that they want better access to
the water, more facilities for camping and
launching along the banks, and general up-
grades that could draw more tourists to the
Those feelings were made clear in a series
of planning and public input sessions held
recently around the county, according to
Jackson County Recreation Director Chuck
Hatcher, who co-hosted the most recent of

those meeting. It was held at Citizen's Lodge
in Marianna Tuesday night.
The meetings were scheduled because the
county is developing a new master plan for
the local landings on Lake Seminole. The
master plan presented by local officials will
have to be approved by the U.S. Corps of En-
gineers. The Corps ultimately controls the
properties, but leases them to the county.
The master plan is a long-range document
that would authorize specific potential de-
velopments. Local authorities are trying
to fit in as many appropriate elements as
possible, so that the master plan would not

Gadsden County

:Death penalty recommended for Cannon


In a split vote, a Gadsden
County jury recommended
the death penalty Wednesday
for Marvin Cannon, the man
convicted on Monday of first
degree murder in the death of
Jackson County resident Zack
Morgan. The vote was 9-3 in
favor of the death penalty, and
came after about'90 minutes of
deliberation. Judge Jonathan
Sjostrom, who presided over
the trial, will make the final
decision on penalty. A hearing
on the matter is set for Nov. 2,

according to the lead prosecu-
tor in the case, Assistant State
Attorney Rick Combs.
In December 2010, Mor-
gan was stabbed at least 30
times in a Gadsden County
corn field, where he'd gone
to obtain hunting corn from
Cannon. The friend who had
accompanied Morgan there,
Sean Neel, was stabbed as well
but survived. Morgan, Neeld,
Cannon and Anton McMillian,
a companion of Cannon, were
all in Morgan's truck, with
Morgan behind the wheel,
when Cannon turned on
Morgan and Neel.

Neel was stabbed first as
the four men traveled into
the field. Morgan yelled at
Neel, Neel opened the door
and bailed out, and Morgan
floored the accelerator after
Neel was thrown clear. These
actions by Morgan may have
been what saved Neel's life;
he was able to run to a nearby
home and summon a resident
to the scene. Neel stayed at
that house while the resident
entered the field with a .357
magnum firearm and drove to
Morgan's truck. The resident
found Morgan there stabbed
to death and his truck crashed

into a tree. He also found Mc-
Millian, and held him at gun-
point until authorities could
arrive. Cannon had fled but
was captured a few days later
at a motel in Quincy.
On Monday, after about
three hours of delibera-
tion, the jury had convicted
Cannon of first degree murder,
attempted first degree murder,
armed robbery with a deadly
weapon, attempted armed
robbery with a deadly weap-
on, and arson of a vehicle.
McMillian won't face trial

From staff reports

As Election Day grows near, the
Jackson County Floridan will be
presenting one of the 11 proposed
amendments on the 2012 ballot
on Tuesday and Thursdays for the
next five weeks. Should you miss
one of the amendments, please visit
politics/. Amendment No. 7 was
taken out by court order, its word-
ing changed, and then reinstated as
Amendment No. 8, stated the Collins
Center for Public Policy. i
According to the Florida Division of
Elections, the Florida Constitutional
Amendment No. 5 states:
"Proposing a revision of Article V of
the State Constitution relating to the
judiciary. The State Constitution au-
thorizes the Supreme Court to adopt
rules for the practice and procedure
in all courts. The constitution further
provides.that a rule of court may be
repealed by a general law enacted by
a two-thirds vote of the membership
of each house of the Legislature. This
proposed constitutional revision elim-
inates the requirement that a general
law repealing a court rule pass by a
two-thirds vote of each house, thereby
providing that the Legislature may re-
peal a rule of court by a general law
approved by a majority vote of each
house of the Legislature that expresses
the policy behind the repeal. The court
could readopt the rule in conformity
with the public policy expressed by the
Legislature, but if the Legislature de-
termines that a rule has been readopt-
ed and repeals the readopted rule, this
proposed revision prohibits the court
from further readopting the repealed
rule without the Legislature's prior
approval. Under current law, rules of
the judicial nominating commissions
and the Judicial Qualifications Com-
mission may be repealed by general
law enacted by a majority vote of the
membership of each house of the Leg-
islature. Under this proposed revision,
a vote to repeal those rules is changed
to repeal by general law enacted by a
majority vote of the legislators present.
Under current law, the Governor ap-
points a justice of the Supreme Court
from a list of nominees provided by a
judicial nominating commission, and
appointments by the Governor are not
subject to confirmation. This revision
requires Senate confirmation of a jus-
tice of the Supreme Court before the

Troop 170 plants trees at Citizens Park I

Special to the Floridan .' ~-- RlI

Troop 170 braved the
hot and humid weather
to perform a conservation
project which was the final
task needed to earn the
Eagle-required camping
merit badge. The badge is
one of the original 57 merit
badges established in 1911.
Robert Baden Powell,
founder of The Boy Scouts
of America, believed a
young person able to
take care of himself while
camping would have the
confidence to meet life's
other challenges, too.
Troop 170 met with
Chuck Hatcher, Parks and
Recreation Director at Citi-
zen's Lodge, where Hatcher
marked a horseshoe area
south of the performance
stage for the planting of
the trees. The scouts dug
the holes and planted 15,
5-foot bottle brush trees,
which will provide shade
and a buffer for the vendor
area in years to coma
After completion of the
conservation project,
Troop 170 traveled to
Marianna Fire Station 2
where engineer Aaron Cal-
loway and fireman Michael
Hall discussed the impor-
tance of firefighting and
the physical aspects and
demands of the career.
The Scouts also partici-
pated in an emergency drill
with the firemen. The man
down fire drill required the
Scouts to access the condi-
tion of the man down,
access the surrounding
elements and pull the fire
dummy to safety in a safe
area outside the burning
The drill looked easy,
however, when each
Scout completed it they
understood the physical
and mental demands of
firemen and also under-
stood the quick decision
making process involved
in emergency work. This
drill completed their last
requirement to earn the
Eagle-required Emergency
Preparedness Merit Badge.
All three Scouts had at-
tended Boy Scout Summer
Camp at Camp Alaflo and
had completed the other
requirements necessary to
earn the badge.

In this edition of the
Jackson County Flori-
dan, the newspaper
reported that a volunteer
air reserve unit was es-
tablished at Graham Air
Base. The unit was creat-
ed for locals to participate
without having to
drive too far. Any re-
serve officers and air-
men were invited to join
and participate in the
training program. Other
servicemen could be a
part of the squadron.
Businesswomen's Week

was about to be observed
with a program that in-
cluded a speaker from
the Social Security office,
music and discussion.
Fire Prevention Week
was celebrated in Nlari-
anna. Inspection torms
were given to students to
look through their house'
for fire hazards; Prizes
were offered to the rooms
that had the best aver-
age in making the survey
and returning the sheets.
Fire Chief Dewey Wells
also conducted safety

checks in the business
district, the buildings of
which were. declared ex-
cellent in regards to fire
safety. Demonstrations
by the Marianna and

anna in 1952 at the old
Jackson Hospital, gradu-
ated from Altha School
in 1970 and from Chipola
Junior College in 1971
with an AA degree. He is
an active farmer and has
lived most of his life in
Jackson County. For about
10 years, Harrison was
a small business owner
running a, nursery busi-

MIAMI -A section of
a parking garage under
construction at a com-

Wednesday, killing one
worker and trapping at
least two others in the
rubble, officials said.
The two trapped workers
were using cellphones -

workers were hurt.
The cause of the col-

Four workers were taken

one in serious condition,
Marino said. Three others
were treated by paramed-

The large section of
the four-story garage fell
shortly before 11:40 a.m.
No students were in the
area at the time, authori-

76,000 votes already cast in must-win Florida

The Associated Press

ridians have already cast
more than 76,000 ballots
in the presidential election
as of Wednesday morning
and the campaigns for Re-
publican Mitt Romney and
President Barack Obama
are scrambling to reach
out to 2 million other vot-
ers who have requested
absentee ballots.
More than three weeks
before voters go to the
polls Nov. 6, the battle for
early votes is in full force
in this state that will be
crucial to winning the
White House.
"Almost our entire vol-
unteer army in the state is
being converted now into
an absentee ballot chase
and an early voter notifi-
cation," said Brett Doster,
a Tallahassee-based Re-
publican strategist work-
ing with Romney. "If you
can get a vote cast today
that's in the bank, that's
another voter you don't
have to spend money on
trying to message."
While campaigns have
always encouraged sup-
porters to request absen-
tee ballots, Florida's new
voting laws have short-
ened the in-person early
voting period from 14
to eight days, a decision
which some election offi-
cials say will create longer
lines and possibly effect
turnout. So this election

there's an even greater in-
centive to ask supporters
to vote by absentee ballot.
Florida's 29 electoral
votes are more than 10
percent of the 270 needed
to win the presidency, the
most of any state that's
considered a toss-up.
So far, Romney's cam-
paign has a slight edge
in absentee voting. Re-
publicans have requested
894,544 absentee ballots
and returned 33,143, com-
pared to 820,865 request-
ed and 31,305 returned
by Democrats, according
to the Romney campaign.
Independent and minor
party voters have request-
ed 374,551 ballots and re-
turned 12,083. The state
Democratic Party has
numbers that reflect the
same ratio of requested
and returned ballots. The
state only releases the in-
formation to political par-
ties, elections officials and
candidates until the elec-
tion is over.
At the same point be-
fore the 2008 election,
Democrats lagged even
further in absentee bal-
lot requests, with Repub-
licans requesting nearly
730,000 ballots compared
to just more than 517,000
for Democrats, according
to figures provided by the
Obama campaign. Tradi-
tionally, Republicans have
voted absentee in larger.
numbers than Democrats,
but Obama still won the

majority of votes cast be-
fore Election Day in 2008.
Early voting at the polls
begins Oct. 27 and runs
through Nov. 3.
Obama's campaign is ag-
gressively pushing what it
calls its "Vote Now!" effort.
It's telling supporters to
request an absentee bal-
lot in person and then fill
it out and return it on the
spot. It laid the ground-
work by contacting elec-
tions' officials to ensure
that they'd allow people to
absentee vote in person.
Most of Florida's 67 coun-
ties allow it.
"This is going to be the
first big statewide push
for in-person absentee
voting," said Obama cam-
paign spokesman Eric
Jotkoff. "Now that the
voter registration dead-
line has passed, our vol-
unteer army is shifting to
educate Floridians on
the several different op-
tions of how Floridians
can vote."
Leon County elections
supervisor Ion Sancho
said the process takes
slightly longer than tradi-
tional voting, but it also
guarantees the ballot will
count rather than get lost
or delayed in the mail.
It also ensures that the
voter signature is checked
on the spot. Occasion-
ally, mailed ballots aren't
counted if signatures don't
match what election offi-
cials have on file.

"They can just get the
ballot, go over to the pri-
vacy booth, mark it, put
it in the privacy envelope,
bring it back to the coun-
ter and go home," Sancho
said. "One hundred per-
cent of these in-person
absentee ballots count."
In Seminole County,
election supervisor Mi-
chael Ertel said he doesn't
allow the ballots to be filled
out right at the counter.
"We make the voters
actually walk out of our
building, otherwise what
we're creating is a quasi-
early voting center," he
said. "If they want to do
it in the parking lot, great,
but we're not a modified
early voting station."
He has noticed an in-
crease in absentee voting,
saying ballot requests have
been about 25 percent
higher than they were in
2008. And he said it's clear
the Obama campaign is
more actively promot-
ing in-person absentee
The campaign was hold-
ing events around the state

age that. Doster, though,

the techniques and the
tactics being used by their
side and our side, it's just

Former Fla. congressman Gibbons dies at 92

The Associated Press

TAMPA Former U.S.
Rep. Sam M. Gibbons, who
served 17 terms in Con-
gress and rose to head the
powerful Ways and Means
Committee before his re-
tirement, died late Tues-
day or early Wednesday at
a Tampa retirement home,
according to his son. The
elder Gibbons was 92.
Tim -Gibbons said his
father died "peacefully
at the retirement home,
where the two had chatted
Tuesday night while look-
ing out over Tampa Bay.
"He was fine, there was
no indication of anything,"
Tim Gibbons said.

Elected in 1962, Gibbons
never lost an election and
was among the Tampa Bay
region's best-known politi-
cians. He is considered the
"father" of the University
of South Florida for push-
ing through legislation to
create the school while
serving in the Florida Leg-
islature in the 1950s.
The alumni center at the
university bears his name,
as does the federal court-
house in Tampa.
"If it hadn't been for him,
we probably wouldn't
have the University of

Duke University's Dr. Robert Lefkowitz (left) celebrates with colleague Mariano Garcia-Blanco
at a party held for him in his offices on the Duke campus in Durham, N.C., on Wednesday,
Oct. 10, 2012, after it was announced that Lefkowitz was the co-winner of the Nobel Prize in

Two US scientists win

Nobel chemistry prize

The Associated Press

Americans won the
Nobel Prize in chemistry
Wednesday for studies of
how the cells in our bodies
pick up signals as diverse
as hormones, smells, fla-
vors and light work that
is key to developing better
Those signals are
received by specialized
proteins on cell surfaces.
Dr. Robert Lefkowitz and
Dr. Brian Kobilka made
groundbreaking discover-
ies about the inner work-
ings of those proteins,
mainly in the 1980s, the
Royal Swedish Academy of
Sciences said.
The proteins are called
G-protein-coupled recep-
tors. Many of today's drugs
- maybe about half-- act
on these receptors, includ-
ing beta blockers and an-
tihistamines. Experts say
the prize-winning work
and subsequent research
is helping scientists as
they try to improve current
drugs and develop new
The receptors pick up
signals outside a cell and
relay a message to the
"They work as a gate-
way to the cell," Lefkowitz
told a news conference in
Stockholm by phone. "As
a result, they are crucial
... to regulate almost every
known physiological pro-
cess with humans."
Lefkowitz, 69, is an in-
vestigator at the Howard
Hughes- Medical Institute
and professor at Duke
University Medical Center
in Durham, N.C.
Kobilka, 57, worked for
Lefkowitz at Duke before
transferring to Stanford
University School of Medi-
cine in California, where
he is now a professor.
Lefkowitz said he was
fast asleep when the No-
bel committee called, but
he didn't hear the phone
because he was wear-
ing ear plugs. So his wife
picked up.
"She said, 'There's a
call here for you from

Stockholm,"' Lefkowitz
told The Associated Press.
"I knew they ain't calling to
find out what the weather
is like in Durham today."
He said he didn't have
any "inkling" that he was
being considered for the
Nobel Prize.
"Initially, I expected I'd
have this huge burst of
excitement. But I didn't. I
was comfortably numb,"
Lefkowitz said.
Kobilka said he found out
around 2:30 a.m., after the
Nobel committee called
his home twice. He said he
didn't get to the phone the
first time, but that when
he picked up the second
time, he spoke to five
members of the
"They passed the phone
around and congratulated
me," Kobilka told AP. "I
guess they do that so you
actually believe them.
When one person calls you,
it can be a joke. But when
five people with convinc-
ing Swedish accents call
you, then it isn't a joke."
He said he would put his
half of the 8 million kro-
nor ($1.2 million) award
toward retirement or "pass
it on to my kids."
The academy said it was
long a mystery how cells
interact with their envi-
ronment and adapt to new
situations, such as when
they react to adrenaline by
increasing blood pressure
and making the heart beat
Scientists suspected that
cells had some type of
receptor for hormones and
other substances, but they
couldn't find any.
Lefkowitz managed to
reveal receptors, such as
one for adrenaline, and
started to understand how
that one works.
Kobilka, working with
Lefkowitz, found the
gene that tells the body
how to make the adrena-
line receptor, and it soon
became clear that there
was a whole family of re-
ceptors that look alike
a family that is now
called G-protein-coupled

Since then, scientists
have built up detailed
knowledge about how
those receptors work and
how they are regulated.
The two prize winners
"have been at the forefront
of this entire scientific
journey," the Nobel com-
mittee said.
Kobilka moved on to
Stanford after the gene
discovery, and just last
year he and his team there
captured an image of a
receptor at the moment it
transferred the signal from
a hormone to the interior
of the cell. The academy
called that "a molecular
Awarding the Nobel to
Lefkowitz and Kobilka
is "a fantastic decision,"
said Roger Sunahara, who
studies how hormones ac-
tivate the receptors at the
University of Michigan.
With detailed knowledge
about the receptors, scien-
tists can better understand
how drugs work, which in
turn helps them improve
current medications and
look for new ones, he
Drugs such as beta
blockers, antihistamines
and various psychiat-
ric medicines have been
around for some time,
but before Lefkowitz .and
Kobilka's discoveries, their
interaction with the hu-
man body wasn't fully
understood, said Sven
Lidin, chairman of the
prize committee.
"All we knew was that
they worked, but we didn't
know why," Lidin said.
Mark Downs, chief
executive of Britain's So-
ciety of Biology, said the
critical role receptors play
is now taken for granted.

She regrets not switch-

That could help. Cus-

Sneads' Alex Maphis lifts a ball during a match against Marianna on Tuesday
night in Sneads.

Sneads spikes MHS

for 10th straight win


The Sneads Lady Pirates made
it 10 victories in a row Tuesday
night at home, taking a three-set
win over county rivals Marianna.
Sneads won by scores of 25-
22, 25-23, and 25-13 to improve
to 15-4 on the season, while the
Lady Bulldogs dropped to 10-8.
It was the first non-district vic-
tory for the Lady Pirates since
beating Choctawhatchee on Sept.
15, and coach Sheila Roberts said
it was a welcome step up in com-
petition for her team after breez-
ing through district 12-0.

"It was fun playing Marianna. It
seems they're better than some of
the competition-we've had lately,"
"It was a fun match, a close
match. The first two were very
close, and in the third Marianna
just ran out of steam a little. I was
very happy with how we played. I
was happywith the way we looked
most of the night."
Sneads had a big night in its at-
tack, posting 31 kills as a team,
with Logan Neel and Ashlyn Rob-
erts leading with seven each, and
Krissi Satterfield adding six.

The Cottondale Hornets picked up their
biggest victory of the season last week
in a 34-13 district win over the Vernon
On Friday, they'll try to add another, less
consequential, victory when they travel to
Jay to take on the Royals.
It's a non-league game for Cottondale (3-
2, 2-0 in District 2-1A), which has won three
of its last four games since an opening week
loss to Marianna.
Jay (2-3) is coming off of a 62-14 road loss
to Northview, though Hornets coach Mike
Melvin said he knows that the Royals will
present a significant challenge to his team.
"They're a pretty good football team.
They're well-coached, and we're going
over there for their homecoming, so I'm
sure they're going to be excited after we get
there," he said. "They've got a solid running
back and a quarterback that throws it pretty

and the running back is fellow llth-grader
Ricky Cofield, who rushed for over 1,000
yards last season.
"He's a compact runner," Melvin said of
Cofield. "He does a good job running the
ball, so we've got to do a good job of con-
taining him."
The Hornets have their own dynamic
ground gainer in senior SheldonVann, who
rushed for 177 yards and two touchdowns
in the win over Vernon and is already ap-
proaching the 1,000-yard mark just halfway
through the regular season.
"He's running the ball hard, and he has
been a good leader for us," Melvin said of
Vann. "He's a special kid and a joy to have
around the team. But that goes for all the
seniors, really. I've had a lot of fun coaching
all of them."

Bullpups looking to

clinch winning season


The Marianna Middle School
Bullpups will look to finish their
season on a high note tonight
when they travel to Enterprise,
Ala., to take on Enterprise Junior
High in the season finale.
InEnterprise (5-0), the Bullpups
will face a team comprised en-
tirely of eighth and ninth grade
players and will dress approxi-
mately 60 players for the game.
MMS coach Hunter Nolen said
he knows his team will have a tall
task to ensure that it finishes the
year with a winning record.
"I've seen (Enterprise) play one
time this year and they looked
pretty good," he said. "It's a really
large school and they can throw
it or run it a little bit. It will be a
good test for us, a good game to
finish the year on. We've had a
week and a half to prepare, so
we're excited to go up there and
show them what Florida can do."

It has been a turnaround
season thus far for the
Hornets, who have already
tripled their win total from
2011 and are tied for first
with Graceville in the dis-
trict standings after going
1-3 in league play last year.
Melvin said that the key
for the improved perfor-
mance has been increased
discipline and focus on the
field, which he attributed
to added experience.
"The main thing is we've
done a good job of con-
trolling the football and
not turning it over or hav-
ing crazy penalties. That's
what we've got to continue
to do," he said.
"It's all about limiting
your mistakes. To play

Marianna (3-2) is com-

the Graceiille Tigers the
second loss to Graceville
this season in a match-
up made up the day of the
game after the Bullpups'
previously scheduled op-
ponent Kingdom Life Prep
canceled that morning.
Despite the loss, Nolen
said that he was proud of
the way his team compet-
ed, especially after losing
to the Tigers 34-14 earlier
in the year.
"I thought we played
tough, especially with it
being short notice. I ap-
preciate those guys com-
ing over and playing us
when we needed a game.
Neither team was very pre-
pared, butI thought we did
a pretty good job defen-
sively. I was very pleased
with the way we played.

game, which helped," he

good football, you can't
make mistakes and give
a team an opportunity to
capitalize on something
you did.
"When you're playing
someone better than you,
there's nothing you can do
about it. But when you're
playing an evenly matched
team, it's the one that
makes the fewest mistakes
that comes out on top."
The coach said that this
week's matchup with the
Royals definitely qualifies
as a fairly even game.
"I think any edge they
may have over us would
be the two-and-half hour
road trip, so we've been
preaching that we have to
be focused when we get
off that bus," Melvin said.
"But it will be the team that
makes the fewest mistakes
that will take this one."

They played Graceville bet-
ter this time than before,
so I hope we can build off
of that and end the season
on a good note."
For the Bullpups, the
prospect of finishing a
season .500 is foreign after
posting four undefeated
seasons in their previous
six campaigns.
The last time Marianna
lost two games in a sea-
son was in 2010, when the
Bullpups went 5-2.
"It's a huge game for us
because we've never fin-
ished a season here with
more than two losses,"
Nolen said. "It's one thing
the guys are talking about
in practice, especially the
eighth graders because
they want to leave their
mark over here and go out
on top. It's something we'll
try to do. I know they're
"It has been a while since

Annie's Mailbox

Dear Annie: My husband is a wonderful
man in almost every respect. But when
we are in the car together, he uses road
rage to manipulate me into agreeing to
things I don't want. He'll drive threaten-
ingly if I don't say it's OK for him to take
that fishing trip or go to a movie. When
he is the driver, he controls everyone
because we are dependent on him.
I have pointed this out to him, but it
always ends in a terrible fight. Worse,
he punishes me by saying, "I will never -
take that trip again," or "I won't go to
that movie with you." He accuses me of
provoking him.
My husband's nephew was the target
of the same abuse when we traveled
together recently. The boy was behaving
like an angel, when suddenly my hus-
band became enraged and demanded all
sorts of concessions from his nephew.
For the longest time, I didn't realize
what was going on. I thought he just
couldn't handle driving. What I didn't
understand is that he uses road rage as a
form of bullying and abuse. I don't know


Clearly he was never a bridge player. It is silly,
unless you are playing in a matchpointed pair
event, to risk your contract for the sake of an
overtrick. Playing with safety is the most sensible
thing in our world.
Can you find the safe play in this deal? South is
in six no-trump. West leads the club queen.
In the modern auction, two no-trump was the
Jacoby Forcing Raise: four-plus spades and game-
forcing values. Four spades indicated a minimum
with no singleton or void. Four no-trump was
Roman Key Card Blackwood, North's reply
showing three key cards (three aces or, as here,
two aces and the trump king). Five hearts asked
for the trump queen, five spades denying that
card. This persuaded South to settle for six
South, with three hearts, three diamonds and
two clubs, needs four spade tricks, not five. He
wins the first trick, then leads a low spade from
his hand and plays dummy's king, whatever West
does. Here, when West discards, South just leads
spades through East's holding. But if East discards
at trick two, declarer plays a spade to his ace and
leads one back toward the jack.
Yes, South could play low from the board to his
nine first, but that would lose an overtrick when
West has the singleton queen.

how I was so blind for so many years. It ts
the perfect tool to get away with what-
ever he wants. It also is a form of torture,
because he makes us feel responsible
should he have an accident.
I don't know whether we will ever go
on another trip together or even to a
movie, but I am willing to go by myself or
with a friend and my husband knows
it. I have no idea where our marriage is
headed after 24 years, but I am prepar-
ing myself to do whatever it takes. I don't
believe he would go for counseling, but I
refuse to let him drive me anywhere ever

Dear Virginia: You are wise not to get
into a car with this maniac. Since your
husband is "wonderful" when he isn't
driving, however, please reconsider
counseling. You don't know how he will
respond until you ask and make it clear
how unhappy you are about such ma-
nipulative, controlling behavior. (But go
in separate cars.)

Police investigate journalist kidnapping a

The Associated Press

LONDON British
police are investigating
Wednesday whether a
British man and woman
arrested on suspicion of
supporting terrorism of-
fenses in Syria were part
of a group that held two
veteran war journalists
hostage in Syria in July.
The abduction of pho-
tographers John Cantlie
and Jeroen Oerlemans
highlighted concerns that
British Muslims might be
slipping into Syria to join
extremists. Both said af-
ter their week-long ordeal
that some of their captors
spoke with British accents.
Police seeking clues in
the case searched two
east London properties
Wednesday one day
after the two 26-year-old
suspects were arrested at

Heathrow Airport after
arriving on a flight from
Police would not com-
ment on British press
reports that one of the
suspects may be a British
National Health Service
doctor believed to have
been involved with a ter-
ror group inside Syria.
Cantlie had told the Brit-
ish press earlier that one of
his captors claimed to be a
British medic who said
he had taken a sabbatical
from his work so that he
could treat badly injured
fighters in Syria.
There were also indica-
tions that some French
citizens may also be inter-
ested in taking up arms in
France's interior min-
ister said members of a
suspected terror cell linked
to an attack on a kosher

grocery appeared to have
plans to travel to Syria to
join the civil war unfolding
there. Police found bomb-
making materials as part
of the probe of the group,
which was described as
"extremely dangerous."
A counterterrorism of-
ficial in France, speaking
on condition of anonymity
because he was not autho-
rized to speak publicly on
the matter, said authorities
have noticed a recent trend
for the Syrian conflict to
be luring French fighters,
and the phenomenon has
been increasing in the last
few months. He would not
specify how many peo-
ple that might involve in
France, or whether anyone
had been detained.
Most of those fighting the
regime of President Bashar
Assad are believed to be
ordinary Syrians and sol-

diers who have defected,
having become fed up with
the authoritarian govern-
ment, analysts say. But in-
creasingly, foreign fighters
and those adhering to an
extremist Islamist ideology
are becoming involved in
the Syrian conflict.
Syrian rebels concerned
about alienating Western
supporters have down-
played the newcomers'
impact on the struggle to
dislodge Assad.
"It's exaggerated, the role
and the numbers," said
George Sabra, spokesman
for the Syrian National
Council. He blamed in part
the international com-
munity for using the issue
as a way to back out of
commitments to help the
Syrians opposing Assad.
He said the foreign fight-
ers do not present long-
term problems.

Jordan's king appoints

appointed a veteran in-

Wednesday as his new
caretaker prime minis-

tary elections the last
time he will make such an
appointment according to
his own reform plan.

making, the parliamen-
tarians elected in the vote
scheduled for the end of
this year or early 2013 will

The changes were de-
creed by Abdullah earlier
this year to transfer more
power to elected bodies
and forestall any chance
of an Arab Spring-style up-
rising similar to those that
toppled regimes elsewhere
in the region.

ment said the king ap-
pointed Abdullah Ensour,
