Marianna resident taking citizenship oath Friday

On Friday in Panama
City, Marianna resident
Laura Clikas will take her
oath of U.S. citizenship.
A native of Mexico, Lau-
ra met husband Demetri
Clikas in her home coun-
try about 15 years ago. An
American who grew up

in Jackson County, Clikas
was working there and
she was running the front
desk of the motel where he
was staying. They became
friends, but after about
three years, their friend-
ship blossomed into a
The two married and
started a family. Their son,

James "Jack" Clikas, was
just three weeks old 11
years ago when they de-
cided to visit the United
States and show their new
baby to grandparents Car-
men and Phillip Clikas.
They came in on a fate-
ful day that would change
their future: Sept. 11, 2001.
They and countless

thousands of other travel-
ers were detained when
they arrived on American
soil as officials tried to sort
out who was responsible
for flying two planes into
the World Trade Center,
another into the Pentagon
and hijacking a fourth that

Amendment No. 8, stated
the Collins Center for Pub-

According to the Flori-

Constitution providing
that no individual or en-
tity may be denied, on the
basis of religious identity
or belief, governmental
benefits, funding or other
support, except as re-
quired by the First Amend-

starting work at

Sunland center

Merlin Roulhac, Sunland Center's new superintendent,
talks with Beth Basford during a meeting Tuesday.

Merlin Roulhac enthusiastic

about opportunity
A new superintendent took the helm at Sunland
Training Center on Monday. Her name is Merlin, but
she's quick to tell you that she's no wizard.
Merlin Roulhac's first name provides her with an
easy opening line as she breaks the ice with new staff
members. She tells them she has no magic wand to
wave to make things work out perfectly for them
and the mentally challenged clients they serve. What
she does have is faith in the processes she plans to
With more than 23 years working with the devel-
bpmentally disabled and in assuring quality ser-
vices are delivered to them, she has vast experience
in setting goals for each client, tailoring strategies to
meet them and following through by measuring the
results of a given plan. Tracking progress regularly
after it is implemented and thereby holding staff ac-
countable, she said, is one major key to success. She
said she believes measuring results is a vital guide
in helping set the next round of strategies in what
should be an ongoing,, dynamic approach to im-
proving quality of life for every client at Sunland.
Roulhac's appointment to the post ends a three-
year period in which frequent changes of leadership
have sometimes left staff feeling unsettled. From
time to time through the many years of Sunland's
existence, there also have been occasional prob-
lems between some staff members and some clients
which became physical.
Roulhac wouldn't address specifics of the past, but
said she believes a great future is in store for every-
one there. Whatever problems Sunland may have
had in the past, she said, can be made right going
She has a "motivational thought" which will guide
that future. "Team Spirit Strategically Fuels Teams
Building Strategic Planning" is her mantra. She
breaks it down to explain what that means to her.
"Teams that come together, that's the energy that
fuels everything," she said. "The sky's the limit; un-
common goals can be reached. We're planning to-
gether, we're looking out into the future to figure out
what's best for the employees as well as the residents
who live here. If the external customers, that is, the
employees, are all on the same page, serving the in-
ternal customers (the clients) the best way we know

Fla. man charged in dinosaur fossils case
Fla. man charged in dinosaur fossils case

The Associated Press

MIAMI A Florida man
was charged Wednesday
with smuggling dinosaur
fossils into the United
States, including a nearly
complete Tyrannosaurus
Bataar skeleton from Mon-
golia, federal prosecutors
Eric Prokopi, a self-de-
scribed "commercial pa-
leontologist" who buys
and sells whole and par-
tial dinosaur skeletons,
was arrested at his home
in Gainesville, according
to a complaint unsealed
by prosecutors. He was
charged with smuggling
goods into the U.S. and in-
terstate sale and receipt of
stolen goods.
He also faces one count
of conspiracy to smuggle
illegal goods, possess sto-
len property and make
false statements. If con-
victed on all of the charges,
he could face up to 35 years
in prison.
During an appearance
Wednesday in federal
court in Gainesville, U.S.
District Judge Gary R Jones
ordered Prokopi to be held
on $100,000 bond. He
must also surrender his
passport and will be under
home detention. A phone

rus skeleton earlier this
year after it was sold by an

auction house for $1.05
Prokopi did not immedi-
ately respond to a phone
call, but his attorney has
said he did nothing wrong.
Prokopi has been in-
volved in a lawsuit in New

ed skeleton came from one
Federal prosecutors said
Prokopi misrepresented
the identity, origin and
value of the skeleton of
the Tyrannosaurus bataar,
a dinosaur that lived ap-
proximately 70 million
years ago.
Prokopi also is accused
of illegally importing from
Mongolia the skeleton of
a Saurolophus, another
dinosaur from the late

sold to a gallery in Cali-

3rd person dies from Florida meningitis outbreak

The Associated Press

State health officials said
Wednesday that a third
person in Florida has died
after contracting menin-
gitis from a tainted steroid
Dr. John Armstrong,
Florida's surgeon general
and secretary of health,
said that the 78-year-old
Marion County man re-

Aug. 28, noticed an onset
of meningitis symptoms
on Oct. 16 and died earlier

Also, Armstrong added,

a 13th Floridian has con-
tracted meningitis due to
the contaminated steroid.
Meningitis cases in Flor-
ida and nationwide have
grown in recent weeks
due to the steroid injec-

Federal health officials
said the tainted medicine

is unclear and is under

looking at whether oth-
er medicines from the

compounding pharmacy
are safe.
Armstrong said that the
state has identified 260
health care facilities in
Florida that have received
medicine from the phar-
macy since January. State
officials have called those
places and urged them to
contact any patients who
might have been treated
with the pharmacy's med-

treated with injections for
eye or heart surgeries.

added that "at this time,

NEW YORK Celebrat-
ing a design 40 years in
the making, dignitaries on
Thursday dedicated a new
memorial park to President
Franklin Roosevelt over-
looking the United Nations
that he helped found.
The Franklin D. Roos-
evelt Four Freedoms Park,
on an island in the East
River, "will stand forever
as a monument to the man
who brought us through
the Great Depression
and brought us victory
over great evil," Mayor
Michael Bloomberg told
several hundred people
at the dedication
Former President Bill
Clinton said that Roos-
evelt's dream for a bet-
ter world "is still the right
dream for America," and
the park should remind
the nation that FDR's lofty
goals are worth pursuifig.
The triangular park is
named after Roosevelt's

1941 State of the Union
address, known as the
Four Freedoms Speech.
Given before America got
involved in World War II,
Roosevelt said the way to
justify the enormous sacri-
fice of war was to create a
world centered on four es-
sential human freedoms:
freedom of speech and ex-
pression; freedom of wor-
ship; freedom from want;
and freedom from fear.
The words were later in-
corporated into the char-
ter of the United Nations.
The park sits on Roos-
evelt Island, a 2-mile slice
of land between Manhat-
tan and Queens. The 4-
acre triangular expanse
of green is flanked by 120
trees leading to a c6olos-
sal bronze bust of Roos-
evelt at the threshold of a

Vann helping lead

Hornets' turnaround

Sheldon Vann runs the ball for Cottondale during the Hornets'
homecoming game against Vernon.


The Cottondale Hor-
nets have been enjoy-
ing a sharp turnaround
from last year's 1-9 sea-
son thus far, already
tripling their win total
from 2011 and jumping
out to a 2-0 start in dis-
trict play to sit tied with
Graceville atop the Dis-
trict 2-1A standings.
While the added expe-
rience of bringing back
20 of 22 starters from last
year's team and better
luck with injuries have

both played roles in the
improved record, so has
the emergence of senior
running back Sheldon
Vann into a dominant
force on offense.
The 6-foot, 191-pound
back had a breakout
season in 2011, breaking
the 1,000-yard barrier in
his first year as the start-
er, gaining 1,047 yards
in 10 games.
After just six games
this season, Vann .has
already surpassed last
season's total with 1,070
yards and 14 rushing
-touchdowns on 8.9

yards per carry.
It has been a remark-
able run for the senior
after he started the sea-
son with just 21 yards on
13 carries in an opening
week loss to Marianna.
Since then, Vann has
gone over 100 yards in
every game, rushing for
a season-high 308 yards
on 39 carries in a district
victory over Wewahitch-
ka and then putting up
177 yards and two TDs
in the latest league win

Marianna golf team earns historic win


The Marianna High School
golf team accomplished a first
in school history Tuesday af-
ternoon, claiming its first ever
boys district title in the District
2-1A tournament at Indian
Springs Golf Course.
Marianna edged out Bay
and Rutherford by just two
strokes, winning with a fi-
nal team score of 351 in the

18-hole competition.
Chance Pender finished
with an 84' to lead the Bull-
dogs, with Kody Bryan right
behind at 86, Aaron.Williams
at 87, Jake Mitchell 92 and
Kiley Bryan 107.
Pender took third overall in
the individual standings, with
Kody Bryan taking seventh,
Williams ninth, Mitchell 16th
and Kiley Bryan 30th in a field
of 35 golfers.
However, with the team tak-

ing the district title, that means
all five of the boys get to go to
the Region 1-1A tournament
Tuesday in Pensacola.
The boys will be joined by
both of their female coun-
terparts, as Caitlyn Carpen-
ter and Caroline Rogers both
qualified for regionals, with
Carpenter shooting a 100 to
take third and Rogers a 107 to
finish sixth.
That means all seven Mari-
anna boys and girls golfers

Lady Pirates dealt

2nd straight loss


The Sneads Lady Pirates suf-
fered their second straight loss
Tuesday night in Tallahassee,
falling to John Paul II Catholic
in three sets.
Sneads (15-6), which had
won 10 straight games before
falling to Arnold last week, lost
25-21, 26-24, and 25-12.
The Lady Pirates had late

leads in the first two sets, but
couldn't close either out, which
left coach Sheila Roberts dis-
appointed after the match.
"I felt like we should've won
or could've won. I thought we
could've finished," she said. "I
don't mind losing if you left it
all out there, but I felt like we
fell a little short and made it a
little too easy for them."

"The first word that came
to my mind was 'wow,"' Mari-
anna coach Scott Wiggins said
after the district win. "It was
great. I'm so excited for the
boys and for the golf team in
general. It's very exciting for
the whole program to take ev-
ery single person on our golf
team (to regionals)."

Indians win

pitcher's duel
Floridan Correspondent
The Chipola Indians baseball
team went on the road Tuesday
afternoon to take on the Raiders
of Northwest State College and
coming away with a 2-1 victory
in nine innings.
It was a pitcher's duel with a
scoreless tie broken in the top of
the eighth inning by the Raiders,
who took a 1-0 lead.
Chipola answered with two
runs in the bottom of the eighth
to take the one-run victory.
Mikel Belcher got the starting
nod on the mound, going two in-
nings and giving up no runs on
no hits, one walk and one error.
Taylor Lewis entered in the
third inning and retired the side.
Jason Jabour pitched the fourth
and retired the side, but after a
walk and an error put runners on
first and second in the fifth, Mi-
chael Mader was brought in.

"We're just making too many
unforced errors still," Roberts
said. "These are varsity volley-
ball players. All of them have ex-
perience playing at this point in
the season, so you don't want to
be making critical errors in the
Ashlyn Roberts led the team


with five kills, while Krissi Sat-
terfield and Logan Neel had four.
Ashley Rogers won 16 of Sneads'
25 service points and converted
six of the team's seven aces.
Rogers and Ashlyn Rogers each
led the team with nine digs, with
Mallory Beauchamp and Brandy
Strickland adding seven each.
Beauchamp led the Lady Pi-
rates with 21 serve receives.
Sneads will next compete in a
quad-match Saturday in Blount-

stown, playing three-set matches
against Marianna, Florida High,
and the host Lady Tigers.
Sheila Roberts said she hopes
to see her players display some
of the prior form that led them to
a 10-match win streak and a 12-0
finish in district.
"I'm trying to stay optimistic,"
the coach said. "I just want us to
win one of these close match-
es. That's what I'm looking for
my team to do. One thing I've


learned is you can't coach heart.
It can't be just one or two girls.
The whole squad has to really
want to win. I'm waiting for that
to come through. We're yet to win
a close one where we might be
outmatched in some areas. That's
what we've got to be able to do at
this point in the season."
The District 2-1A tournament
follows next week in Altha, which
will begin the Lady Pirates' quest
to return to the state semifinals.

"I think they have as much if not
more skill as any team I've had
before, so the potential is there,"
Roberts said. "But you've got to
have the heart, the head, and
the skill. It's got to be the whole
package. I just have to be patient.
We've got three more opportuni-
ties to work on that this week-
end, and we'll have some tough
practices between now and then.
But I'm optimistic still. This team
has got huge potential."

From Page 7A
"The year has been good. The
line is doing a terrific job block-
ing," Vann said. "The coaches are
giving us a great game plan and
I just go out and run as hard as I
can every Friday."
Vann is quick to credit the of-
fensive line, a senior-laden group
that returns all five starters from
last year, for paving the way for
his success.

"My line has been doing their
job every week," he said. "The
chemistry between us is great. I
just try to find a way to make a
play once they make the hole
for me. All they care about is me
scoring and us winning."
Hornets coach Mike Melvin
said he hasn't been surprised
at all by Vann's production thus
far given his work ethic and the
quality of the offensive front.
"Sheldon had a great off-sea-
son in the weight room. He knew
he was going to have to tote the

load for us and he's been very
productive," he said. "I think that
just comes with maturity, and
an experienced offensive line
Vann has also gotten some help
from the emergence of a pair of
backfield' mates in junior full-
back Norris Calhoun and fresh-
man runner DaMichael Faulk,
but Melvin hasn't been hesitant
to put a heavy load on his se-
nior, with Vann carrying the ball
an average of 20 times per game
while also startingon defense.

"There have been several
games when he's actually want-
ed it more," the coach said. "But
with (Calhoun and Faulk) back
there, it actually alleviates some
of the pressure off of him."
Vann's stated preseason goals
of 1,500 yards and 20 touch-
downs both look well within
reach at this point.
"I think I've got a big part. I
think I've earned the coaches'
respect to give me the ball that
many times so I can help lead
us to victory," he said. "The guys

look up to me, so I'm trying to
help them stay focused and stay
on track and continue to win."
The Hornets return to action
Oct. 26 against the Sneads Pirates
in another key district matchup.
With a win, Cottondale would
all but assure itself of a spot in the
postseason and move to within
one victory of a district title.
"I think our chances of winning
district are good," Vann said. "We
just have to play hard and stayfo-
cused. I think we can win district
and go deep in the playoffs."

Indians Mader allowed one hit in the
Inlians sixth.
Alex Bigale took over for the

Anthony led things off with a Clayte Rooks drew a walk, stole

ball to short by Luis Tunan.
Chipola will conclude its fall
season Friday in double header
action on the road at Tallahas-
see Community College. Game
times are 1 and 3:30 p.m.

From Page 7A
The Marianna boys came
into the tournament as the
overwhelming favorites
after going undefeated in
district competition dur-
ing the season.
The two-stroke margin
cut it perhaps closer than
Wiggins would've liked,
but the coach said the vic-
tory was no less satisfying.
"It just feels great to
come out on top when we
really didn't play our best,"
he said. "It just shows you
the talent that we do have
here and just the hard work
that they've put in has paid
off. I'm very excited to be a
part of it."
It has been a quick climb

for the Marianna golf pro-
gram, which finished sixth
in the district in Wiggins'
first year as coach in 2010
and fourth in 2011 before
this season's champion-
ship run.
"It is a pretty long way to
come in a short period of
time, but the kids for the
past three years have been
working hard at it, and it
just shows that if you put
your work in, you will see
the results," the coach said.
'At the start of the year, we
knew we had a pretty good
nucleus, but the kids just
worked their tails off and it
paid off."
The regional tournament
will be played at A.C. Reed
Golf Course.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23)
- If your credibility with
others could be fragile at
present, it wouldn't be wise
to tell any fish stories.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov.
22) You are the type of
person who seldom counts
his or her chickens before
they're hatched. However,
you might bank heavily on
something more wishful.

someone with ulterior mo-
tives who could try to ma-
nipulate you with flattery.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan.

is likely to include several
people you dislike, don't

yet to accomplish, tell it
like it is.
ARIES (March 21-April 19)
- Usually, you like to play

Annie's Mailbox

Dear Annie: Due to many compli-
cated family issues, I've been estranged
from my adult daughter for the past 10
years. However, she has a college-aged
daughter with whom I've managed to
maintain a decent and, I thought, loving
Last month, I was on "Chelsea's"
Facebook page, I've been proud of her
success in college, her happiness with
friends and the experience of living
away from her mother. However, her
friends posted a couple of remarks on
her Facebook page that bothered me. I
emailed her that these issues may not be
any of my business, btit I was concerned
for her personal safety, etc. She quickly
replied that this was indeed none of my
business, and she made excuses for the
Facebook comments. I expressed how
disappointed I was with her attitude
since I was only worried about her.
We haven't spoken since then, and
frankly, I cannot excuse her bad behavior


The Internet has been good for bridge play-
ers, but bad for bridge clubs, with plummeting
attendances. This deal, though, centers on
counting something bridge players world-
wide should do as much as they can.
South is in six hearts. West leads the club
jack to declarer's ace. How many winners and
losers does South have? What should he do?
When South had enough to jump-rebid in
hearts, North wondered if there might be a
grand slam. But deciding that he would never
be able to find out with any accuracy, he
settled for the small slam. (Real bridge players
don't need Blackwood!)
South should see one, two or three losers
in diamonds, depending upon the split of
that suit. He has 11 top tricks: two spades, six
hearts, one diamond and two clubs.
The first thought is probably that South
needs to find the missing diamonds breaking
2-2. But that ought to be left in reserve. Per-
haps a third spade winner can be established.
Declarer should win trick one, play a spade
to dummy's king, ruff a spade high, cross to
dummy with a trump, ruff another spade, and
draw trumps. Are spades 4-3? If so, play a dia-
mond to dummy's ace and cash the ace and
seven of spades. However, if the spades are
5-2, South must hope for 2-2 diamonds.

toward me. But Chelsea doesn't have a
great many family members, and I would
like to mend this rift. My own friends
have pointed out that "the apple doesn't
fall far from the tree." Any suggestions?

Dear Grandpa: Chelsea is young and liv-
ing independently for the first time. She
doesn't want her grandfather (or anyone
else) to tell her how to live her life. You
were undoubtedly right to be concerned
about her safety, but it came across as
criticism, and she was not receptive.
If you want to fix this, you will have to
make the first move. Send her an email
or post something on her Facebook page
that is positive and complimentary. Say
nothing about the previous disagree-
ment, and hope she is equally willing
to let it go. Then start fresh. We hope
someday Chelsea will be mature enough
to appreciate your advice. But right now,
please tread lightly.

how and striving to reach
the goals we've set, we're
all in a positive cyclical
process of planning, col-
lecting data and acting
upon what we find as we
go through that cycle.
We'll never be satisfied,
we will continue to im-
prove ourselves. Quality
of service at the optimum;
that's what we're after."
Roulhac said she is busy
these first few days get-
ting familiar with all the
administrative details that
she needs to get started,
but she said she's looking
forward to getting out on
"I can't wait," said. "I
love Sunland, I love peo-
ple. My first degree was
from Chipola in Mental
Retardation. I've always
been intrigued by people
who have these special
challenges. I've always
wanted to serve people
who needed someone to
understand them as an in-
dividual. That drove me to
come out here in the first
place and try my hand
at it. It is so rewarding to
work with these folks.
"They give their all to
achieve outcomes in their
lives, and to have a hand
in helping them do that
is so rewarding: I can't
describe the joy you can
get from having a part in,
and seeing, folks learn-
ing to feed themselves,
clothe themselves, to
make everyday decisions.
To support folks toward
achieving their ultimate
level of independence is
a rewarding way to spend
my time. I'm ready to get
out there once I get a toe-
hold on this administra-
tive piece."
Roulhac said her staff
should expect her to be
assessing the way things
work at Sunland for a pe-
riod of time before mak-
ing major changes.
"You can't go in with a
big fire hose to accom-
plish what you want," she
explained. "Right now, I'm
looking at the strength
of this organization it
has survived a lot but
also I'm assessing the op-
portunities for improve-
ment. I may not be mak-
ing radical changes, but
that doesn't mean that
things will remain status
quo. We are never, never
complacent, we're always
driving to achieve. The
thread here is safety and
Roulhac, the first Afri-
can-American female .to
lead Sunland, has a long
professional and per-
sonal history with the
It was there that she met
and "fell in love at first
sight" with her husband
of almost 30 years, the
Rev. Freedie D. Roulhac,
who is now pastor of the
Poplar Springs Missionary
Baptist Church.
When they first laid eyes
on each other, both were
working as a teacher's aide
in a Washington County
educational program be-
ing held on the campus of
Sunland at the time.
They married about
six months after they
met. The two teachers
they worked for got to-
gether and threw them a
wedding in the Sunland
Roulhac can now see the
chapel every day from her
office in the administra-
tion office. The little white
building sits right across
the road.
From that first job as a
teacher's aide, Roulhac
would go on to work her

way up the ranks at Sun-
land as she and her hus-
band settled down and

started their family.
They are the parents of
two grown children, the
Rev. Christopher Alika,
who is a pastor in Dun-
woody, and Scotty Roul-
hac of Greenwood.
She has spent 29 years
as an employee of state
government, 23 of those
working with the devel-
opmentally disabled at
Sunland, so she's hardly a
stranger on the campus.
Her first job at Sunland
proper, after her stint in
the Washington County
teacher's aide post, was
as a cottage parent for
residents who lived in
Sunland's Eisenhower
She soon worked her
way up from being a sec-
ond-shift cottage parent
to planning and manag-
ing the full realm of ac-
tivities for the House on
her shift. She went on
to manage a shift of the
Pierce House on campus
and was later promoted
to be the Human Services
Administrator for Pierce,
where she started oversee-
ing all operations of the
house, involved across all
Then, she earned certifi-
cation in behavior analy-
sis, which opened more
doors for her to get in-
volved in behavioral pro-
grams. She also worked
in staff development,
where she learned to train
people for the jobs they
were to do at Sunland.
Promotions and escalat-
ing responsibilities con-
tinued through the years.
In all, she's spent about
six years off the Sunland
campus in various jobs
for the Department of
Children and Families,
including a turn as proj-
ect manager for program
to ensure effective com-
munication strategies for
deaf or hard of hearing cli-
ents. Her most recent job
was as a DCF manager of
Performance Improve-
ment and Data Report-
ing Centers of Excellence
in the Office of
Human Resources at
DCF headquarters in
She has a BA in crimi-
nal justice, in addition to
her AA in general studies
and her AAS in Mental
Retardation from Chipola
She said she's glad to
be back at Sunland, and
said her career success
has been possible, in large
part, to the support of
her family there and at
"My husband has been
such a rock; he's sup-
ported me in every pro-
fessional endeavor I have
pursued," she said. "I have
the most healthy family
situation, and I want ev-
eryone to experience that.
And these two grown chil-
dren of mine, that's who
I am. And, a level above
that, without God, none of
this would be possible. He
gave me this job, and I am
so humble and grateful to
have this opportunity to
As she takes on her new
role, she can't say exactly
what the future holds for
Sunland and whether it
will someday again face
the threat of closure as it
has in the past through
the years of shifting leg-
islative priorities. She
wouldn't speculate on
that, but knows the best
way for Sunland to make
its case as a vital facility.
for the developmentally
disabled. "All we can do
is provide service at the

Chinese elite politics:
It's still a man's world
BEIJING A glance at
history suggests it's easier
for a Chinese woman to
orbit Earth than to land a
spot on the highest rung
of Chinese politics.
In June, an air force
major became the first
Chinese woman to travel
in space. With a once-a-
decade leadership transi-
tion set to kick off Nov. 8,
many now are waiting to
see if another ambitious
woman, State Councilor
LiuYandong, can win one
of the nine spots at the
apex of Chinese power.
Liu is a smiley 67-year-
old with a degree in
chemical engineering and
a penchant for pearls and
red lipstick..Her portfolios
include education, sports
and cultural affairs.

Mexico seeks
exhumation of drug
lord's parents
can authorities are seeking
permits to exhume the
remains of the parents
of Heriberto Lazcano to
obtain material for DNA

testing in order to con-
vince the public beyond
doubt that the drug lord
is dead, the country's top
anti-drug prosecutor said
Lazcano's body was
stolen by a team of armed,
masked men from a
funeral home in northern
Coahuila state on Oct. 8,
shortly after he was killed
the day before, according
to officials.
Mexico's navy says
Lazcano's body was identi-
fied through fingerprints
before the corpse was tak-
en. Local prosecutors have
said they did not know the
body was Lazcano's until
after it was stolen.
Prosecutor Jose Cuitla-
huac Salinas said Lazca-
no's parents died years ago
and are buried in central
Hidalgo state.
"Unfortunately, both
parents died many years
ago, and that complicates
things," Salinas said.'
He did not say what
sample from Lazcano's
body would be used
for comparison, but an
autopsy was performed
before the body was taken.

Wine experts: Worst grape

harvest in half century

The Associated Press

maker Cherie Spriggs had
watched the bad weather
over southern. England's
vineyards all season long.
It just wasn't good enough
for Nyetimber, her award-
winning sparkling wine.
"I have never seen a
situation like this before,"
Spriggs said as the grapes
failed to deliver. She was
left with only. one option
and the company decided,
to forego the 2012 harvest.
Few have gone as far as
Nyetimber' but drought,
frost and hail have com-
bined to ravage Europe's"'
wine grape hanrest, which
in key regions this year will
be the smallest in half a
century, vintners say.
Thierry Coste, an ex-
pert with the European
Union farmers' union, said
Wednesday that France's
grape harvest is expected
to slump by almost 20
percent compared with
last year. Italy's grape crop
showed a 7 percent drop
- on top of a decline in
"Two big producing na-
tions, France and Italy,
have not known a harvest
so weak in 40 to 50 years,",
Coste said. "All the major
producing nations havb
been hurt."

In places where vintners
were already facing a small
margin of profit, many
could be facing survival
problems, said Coste of the
Copa-Cogeca union.
"In certain regions, there
will be many vintners in
big difficulties because
of the collapse of the har-
vest," he said.
The European wine

harvest automatically has
a global impact since it
accounts for some 62 per-
cent of the worldwide wine
It won't mean any imme-
diate drought for consum-
ers since retailers typically
offer a wide range of vin-
tages. And taste often wins
when yields are small.
In Europe, about 2.5 mil-
lion families live off the
wine sector. It makes the
dependency on the vaga-
ries of weather a some-
times cruel business.
Drought hit the Mediter-

Coste said. As a coopera-
tive leader in southern

that we have ever more dry

matters worse is that even

Syria envoy calls on

government for truce

The Associated Press

BEIRUT The interna-
tional envoy to the Syrian
conflict on Wednesday
called on President Bashar
Assad's regime to take the
lead in a cease-fire during
a major Muslim holiday
later this month, calling
it a "microscopic" step to-
ward ending a crisis that
he said could consume
the whole region.
Lakhdar Brahimi told re-
porters in Beirut Wednes-
daythat if the government
initiates the cease-fire,
everyone he has talked to
on the rebel side has said
they also will observe the

begin Oct. 26 reflects how
little progress internation-
al diplomacy has made
in stopping 19 months
of deadly violence in
Unlike his predecessor
as joint U.N.-Arab League
envoy, Kofi Annan, Bra-
himi has said he has no
grand plan to solve Syria's
crisis. Instead, he present-
ed the truce as a "micro-
scopic" step that would
lessen Syrian sorrow
temporarily and could
be the basis for a longer
truce. ,
"The Syrian people
are burying hundreds of
people each day, so if they
bury fewer people during
the days of the holiday,
this could be the start of
Syria's return from the
dangerous situation that
it has slipped and is con-
tinuing to slip toward," he
Even if the rebels and
regime agree, both in the
past have verbally signed
on to cease-fires only
to then blatantly disre-
gard them. And before

Brahimi spoke, Syria's
government dismissed
the plan, saying the rebels
lack a unified leadership
to sign the truce.
"There is the state, rep-
resented by the govern-
ment and the army on
one front, but who is on
the other front?" asked an
editorial in the Al-Thawra
The scores of rebel units
fighting a brutal civil war
against the regime have
no unified leadership, and
many don't communicate
with each other.

ing meetings with top
Lebanese officials as part
of a regional tour. He said

Turkey, Saudi Arabia
and Qatar: are sympa-
thetic to the rebels and
are believed to be facili-
tating their acquisition of
weapons or arming them
directly. Iran and Russia
are Assad's biggest sup-
porters and provide the
Syrian military with most
of its advanced weapons:,
"These countries need
to realize, as we heard
today in Lebanon, that it
is not possible that this
crisis will stay inside Syr-
ian border forever," he
said. "Either it has to be
taken care of or it will
spread and spillover and
consume everything."
Rebel leaders were
not immediately avail-
able for comment on the
proposed truce.
