Woman gets

stranded, at


Sheriff Roberts

begins investigation

into how it happened
Jackson County Sheriff Lou Roberts
is conducting an internal investigation
into which of his officers should be dis-
ciplined for leaving a woman overnight
in a holding cell at the Jackson County
Courthouse Monday rather than taking
her to jail that day after court as ordered
by the presiding judge.
Pleading guiltythat day to the posses-
sion of drug paraphernalia, the woman
had been sentenced by County Judge
Wade Mercer to serve four months in
the county jail. She was supposed to be
taken there that day to start serving her
time. Instead, an apparent breakdown
in communications left her stranded in
the courthouse holding cell, according
to Jackson County Sheriff Lou Roberts.
The next day, after she was discovered
to still be in the holding cell, Mercer
called her back to court and amended
her sentence; he gave her 10 days extra
credit for time served. Mercer said he
did that in an attempt to help make up
for the woman's ordeal.
"I felt terrible about it, and the state
attorney's office did, also," Mercer ex-
plained. "When I found out about it
Tuesday, I talked to the public defender
and the state attorney's office; I felt like,
because of what happened, the sheriff's
office dropping the ball, that she de-
served something. No one should be
treated that way. The holding cell has
a metal bench, but there's no cushion
and no pillow it's not designed for
overnight stays. It has a working toilet,
and maybe it had a working sink, but
some of those don't work, so I'm not

Holmes County


arrest 3 in two

separate cases
From staff reports
Deputies with the Holmes County
Sheriff's Office kept the roads hot over-
night Wednesday, emerging with three
arrests in two separate cases by Thurs-
day morning.
- Driver bails out during chase
The; first incident began Wednesday
night when a deputy tried to pull over a
red Chevrolet pickup truck for registra-
tion and seatbelt violations, according
to agency press release. The driver of
the truck sped up instead
of stopping and led the
deputy on a 20-minute
*,high speed chase that
ended when the driver
bailed out of the vehicle,
leaving his passenger be-
Thompson hind in the truck as it be-
gan having mechanical
problems near the Alabama state line.
Deputies gave chase on foot and
soon captured the man, identified as
30-year-old Defuniak Springs resident
Wesley Adam Thompson. Deputies
later searched the truck and found
methamphetamine and paraphernalia

Bellamy Bridge kiosk unveiled


Erika Dozier lived in Jackson County
for 15 years before moving to Soufhi
Florida. She misses the niatuial won-
ders of Jackson County, and is glad
when she has ar opportunity to visit
here. She made her way to the new

Bellamy Bridge Heritage Trail on
Thursday, there to witness a ceremony
in which a new information kiosk was
unveiled at the trailhead.
Before the ceremony, Dozier trekked
down the trail. Along the way, she saw a
snake, three wild piglets following their
mother in the woods, some old trees
she found beautiful in their age and

more of the things that make her miss
the localarea so much. She was thrilled
about the new trail.
"It's wonderful here, and this trail just
niakes me more homesick for dthe veg-
etation, for the fresh smell of nature,"
Dozier said. "It makes you feel 'quiet

In the Sunday, May 5 edition, an
article about the opening of the
Marianna City Farmers Market mis-
identified someone in a photograph
accompanying the article. The per-
son erroneously identified as Sharon
Arnett was actually Lynn Lipford,
vice president of the Jackson County
Growers Association. Also, one of the
pictured vendors was misidentified
as a representative of Nubbin Ridge
Farms, when in fact she is from Nub-
bin Valley Farms. The article also had
the wrong date for the Marianna Fly-
In. It is really scheduled for May 18.

planned for weeks to cel-
ebrate National Day of
Prayer in a way where the
local community could
come together for prayer
and fellowship. This was
accomplished in an unfor-

day, May 2.
It had been widely pub-
licized that retired coach
Mickey Andrews from
Florida State University,
also a former Florida Gator
coach and coach on the
professional level, would
speak, with breakfast to be
served and music provid-

.ber of the local commu-
nity started to arrive at
the church's Wesley Cen-
ter, to be greeted by many
small American flags
along all approaches to

the church. Hot coffee and
greetings by the host group
created a warm reception
and set the tone for a won-
derful program.
Pastor Bill Elwell circu-
lated among the visitors
extending appreciation
for attendance. It was
enjoyable to see pastors
and church members
from other local churches
as well as several .local

Questions surround religious ministries, health mandates

"A hen describing how

V serve the needy, Jesus
told a parable about a good Sa-
maritan who rescued a traveler
who had been robbed and left
for dead.
This businessman didn't care
that his act of kindness took
place in public and that the in-
jured man didn't share his faith.
This raises a haunting ques-
tion for those involved in the
church-state struggles sur-
rounding the Health and Hu-
man Services mandate requir-
ing most religious institutions to
offer their employees, and often
students, health-insurance
plans covering sterilizations and
all FDA-approved contracep-
tives, including "morning-after
As Sister Mary Ann Walsh of
the U.S. Conference of Catho-
lic Bishops noted in an online
memo: "HHS has such a narrow
standard as to who operates a
religious ministry, Jesus himself
couldn't pass muster."
After all, the good Samaritan
wasn't ordained and didn't
work for a church or a non-
profit ministry, noted Stanley
Carlson-Thies, president of the
Institutional Religious Free-
dom Alliance. He spoke during
a recent religion-and-politics


symposium at Calvin College in
Grand Rapids, Mich., which was
streamed online.
Also, this businessman
provided food and health care
and the "very point of the story"
is that he "cared for the injured
man even though... the man
..was of a different religion,"
stressed Carlson-Thies.
Today, it would appear
that any ministry that follows
Jesus 'by giving a cup of cold
water to anyone who needs it,
including those of other or no
religion... has put itself out-
side the category of a religious
After all, the HHS mandate
only recognizes the. conscience
rights of employers if they "fit

that applies only to churches
and their closely controlled af-
filiates," he said.
These nonprofit employers
must have the "inculcation of
religious values" as their goal,

primarily employ persons who
share their "religious tenets" and
primarily serve persons who
share those same tenets.
The mandate has created a
legal storm. Critics are asking
whether the White House is
promoting a two-tier approach
to the First Amendment with
"freedom of worship" favored
over a broader right to the "free
exercise" ofreligious liberty.
Currently, an unprecedented
number of lawsuits against the
federal government 54 cases
with more than 160 plaintiffs
are creeping through the
Meanwhile, noted Carlson-
Thies, some branches of the
government seem confused
about what forms of religious
work they want to encourage in
public life.
For example, if leaders of reli-
gious organizations want to fit
.into the exempt category under

the HHS mandate, they must
be willing to violate the federal
rules governing the faith-based
initiative that seeks to promote
cooperation between religious
groups and the state.
After all, he said, the faith-
based initiative "requires groups
that receive federal dollars to
serve everyone, without regard
to faith."
But there are complications
that mandate opponents
must acknowledge, said
political scientist Leah Sep-
panen Anderson, responding
to Carlson-Thies. For example,
many schools, hospitals and
social agencies that retain some
ties to religious bodies also are
willing to hire. employees, and
'admit students, that do not af-
firm their doctrines or practice
their faith.
Anderson noted that she
teaches at Wheaton College
and willingly signs a covenant
expressing support for this
evangelical school's approach
to life and faith. However,
this is not the case on campuses
such as Georgetown University
and the University of Notre
Dame. Many women work,
study and'teach there and have
not signed doctrinal covenants.
"What about these women,
then? Why does the religious

freedom of these organizations,
who choose to hire people
who do not ... necessarily
share their religious values
and convictions" matter so
much, she asked, but "these
women either have their reli-
gious freedom limited or
their health-care options
It would be better, she said,
if Arherican public life contin-
ued to welcome many different
religious perspectives on these
kinds of divisive issues, but "that
may not be the reality."
In the end, stressed Carl-
son-Thies, that kind of broad
civic tolerance is what must be
"To my mind," he said,
"this is the most significant
religious freedom challenge in
our country in our time to
struggle against these restrictive
trends in order to preserve the
freedom of faith-based organi-
zations to serve the public in a
countercultural way, to follow
what they believe God calls
them to do even when those
practices differ from the popular

Fate of redistricting battle now with court

The Associated Press

preme Court was asked Thursday,to
end a bruising political battle over
whether state legislators ignored
new standards designed to limit po-
litical influence in drawing up new
districts for themselves.
Justices presided over a nearly
hour-long clash between lawyers
representing the Republican-con-
trolled Florida Legislature and those
representing several groups includ-
ing the League of Women Voters.
The Legislature wants the court
to throw out a lawsuit challenging
new districts for the state Senate.
The Supreme Court last year initially
rejected the Senate map but then
approved a revised version during a'
30-day review period.
Raoul Cantero, a former justice
representing the Senate, said those
upset with the new maps should not
get a chance to challenge them now
in a trial court.
"The constitution provides for ex-
clusive jurisdiction in the Florida Su-
preme Court and any evidence had
to be brought in that case," Cantero
told reporters after the hearing.
But Adam Schachter, a lawyer rep-
resenting the groups challenging the
redistricting plan, said a trial is need-
ed so that evidence can be collected
to determine if legislators violated

the "Fair Districts" amendments that
voters passed in 2010.
Those amendments mandate that
legislators can't draw legislative or
.Congressional districts intended to
protect incumbents or members of a
certain political party, a practice that
is known as "gerrymandering."
Schachter said if the Supreme
Court threw out the lawsuit then,
"Fair Districts will be nothing more
than words on a paper."
The lawsuit has already turned up
documents showing top GOP offi-
cials met in late 2010 to brainstorm
redistricting with political consul-
tants and legislative staffers. Lawyers
for the League are pushing to inter-
view actual legislators about why
they drew districts a certain way.
Legislative lawyers, meanwhile,
have unearthed emails showing that
"Fair Districts" backers worked on a
map submitted as part of one law-
suit where the "underlying goal" was
to increase "safe Democratic seats"
and the number of "competitive
Republicans hold a 26-14 advan-
tage in the Florida Senate, a 76-44
edge in the state House and a 17-10
advantage in the state's congressio-
nal delegation even though there are
more registered Democrats than Re-
publicans in the state and President
Barack Obama carried the state.
Justices did not indicate when they

would rule. And the majority of the
court sat stone-faced and silent dur-
ing the proceedings on Thursday.
But Justice Charles Canady, who
was appointed by former Gov. Char-
lie Crist, did not hide that he was
skeptical of the lawsuit.
He said accepting the Fair Districts
backers' point of view would mean
bringing a never-ending series of
"It could go on and on and on and
we could be litigating this redis-
tricting plan for the next decade,"
But Justice Barbara Pariente noted
that lawyers for the Legislature had
changed their position from a year
Back in 2012, legislative lawyers
maintained that the Supreme Court
could only do a cursory review and
that any questions about whether
"Fair Districts" standards were vio-
lated she be left to a trial court first.
She also said that until courts rule
on how to apply the new "Fair Dis-
tricts" amendments that there could
be a "messy" legal situation.
The Supreme Court was only deal-
ing with just one of three ongoing
lawsuits dealing with 'redistricting.
There are two lawsuits challenging
the maps drawn up for Congress:
The Congressional map, however,
was not reviewed by the state Su-
preme Court.

traveling faster than 120
miles per hour' before it
turned north on Holmes

Ohio captive suffered 5 miscarriages

The Associated Press

CLEVELAND Prosecutors said
Thursday they may seek the death
penalty against Ariel Castro, the
man accused of imprisoning three
women at his home 'for a decade, as
police charged that he impregnated
one of his captives at least five times
and made her miscarry by starving
her and punching her in the belly.
The horrific allegations were con-
tained in a police report that also
said another one of the women,
Amanda Berry, was forced to give
birth in a plastic kiddie pool.
Cuyahoga County prosecutor
Timothy McGinty said his office will
decide whether to bring aggravated
murder charges punishable by death
in connection with the pregnancies
that were terminated by force.
"Capital punishment must be
reserved for those crimes that are
truly the worst examples of human
conduct," he said. "The reality is
we still have brutal criminals in our
midst who have no respect for the
rule of law or human life."
I Castro, a 52-year-old former
school bus driver, is being held
on $8 million bail under a suicide
watch in jail, where he is charged
with rape and kidnapping.
McGinty said Castro will be
charged for every act of sexual vio-
lence, assault and other crimes
committed against the women, sug-
gesting the counts could number in
the hundreds, if not thousands.
Among the chilling details in the
police report, obtained Thursday by
news organizations:

plastic pool in the house so it would
be easier to clean up. Berry said she,
her baby, now 6, and the two other
rescued women had never been to a
doctor during their captivity.
)) Michelle Knight, now32, said her
five pregnancies ended after Castro
starved her for at least two weeks
and "repeatedly punched-her in the
stomach until she miscarried." She
also said Castro forced her to deliver
Berry's baby under threat of death
if the infant died. Knight said that
when the newborn stopped breath-
ing, she revived the child through
mouth-to-mouth resuscitation.
All three women said Castro
chained them ap in the basement
but eventually let them live upstairs
on the second floor. Each woman
told a similar story about being ab-
ducted after accepting a ride from

During his brief arraignment
Thursday, Castro tried to hide his
face, tucking his chin inside his col-
lar. He appeared to close his eyes
during the hearing and signed doc-
uments while handcuffed. He did
not speak or enter a plea.
In court, prosecutor Brian Mur-
phy said Castro used the women "in
whatever self-gratifying, self-serv-
ing way he saw fit."
Kathleen DeMetz, a public de-
fender assigned to represent him at
thge hearing, didn't comment on his
guilt or innocence or object when
prosecutors recommended bail be
set at $5 million. The judge, instead,
ordered Castro held on $8 million.
Castro's two brothers, who were
arrested with him but later cleared
of involvement, appeared in court
on unrelated charges Thursday and
were released.

Feds: Hackers stole $45M in ATM card breach

The Associated Press

NEW YORK,- A worldwide gang
of criminals stole a total of $45 mil-.
lion in a matter of hours by hacking
their way into a database of prepaid
debit cards and then draining cash
machines around the globe, federal
prosecutors said Thursday and
outmoded U.S. card technology
may be partly to blame.
Seven people are under arrest
in the U.S. in connection with the
case, which prosecutors said in-
volved thousands of thefts from
ATMs using bogus magnetic swipe
cards carrying information from
Middle Eastern banks. The fraud-
sters moved with astounding speed

the age of 21, and I never got over
leaving it. You almost forget what
it was you had, and then being out
here, it all comes back. I think the
trail is a great thing they've done."
The ceremony was guided by local
historian Dale Cox, who is largely
responsible for starting the effort to
create the trail as a pathway back to
the historic Bellamy Bridge, a long-
abandoned iron structure famous
for a legend associated with it, a
ghost story generally known as The
Bride of Bellamy Bridge.
The new kiosk is the first of 11
such information stations that are
planned for the newly-created Jack-
son County Spanish Heritage Trail
driving tour, still a work in prog-
ress. It encompasses a 150-mile
circuit with various stops along the
way that tourists and locals are be-
ing invited to explore as the trail
takes shape and all the kiosks are
added. Its stops include the West-
bank Overlook at Lake Seminole in

The other kiosks will be erected as

advantage of this year's statewide
celebration of the Spanish era of
Florida, including the expansion of
Spanish missions and the expedi-
tions of Spanish explorer Marcos
Delgado into the state.

Hezbollah: Syria to supply weapons to militia

The Associated Press
BEIRUT Syria will
supply "game-changing"
weapons to Hezbollah,
the chief of the Lebanese
militant group said Thurs-
day, less than a week after
Israeli airstrikes on Da-
mascus targeted alleged
shipments of advanced
Iranian missiles bound for
Israel has signaled it will
respond with airstrikes to
any future weapons ship-
ments, meaning it could
quickly get drawn into
Syria's civil war if the Hez-
bollah chief's declaration
is more than an empty
Tension has been rising
in the region since Israel
struck targets inside Syria
on Friday and Sunday. He-
zbollah and Israel fought
several battles in the past
three decades, including a
34-day war in 2006 that left
some 1,200 Lebanese and
160 Israelis dead.
Israel has largely tried
to stay out of Syria's 26-
month-old conflict. It nev-
er acknowledged the air-
strikes, but Israeli officials
have signaled Israel's air
force would strike against
any shipments of strate-
gic missiles that might be
bound for Hezbollah.
Israel and Hezbollah have
been exchanging threats
over the past months.
Israeli officials say the
Lebanese militant group
has tens of thousands of
rockets, though most of
them are unguided. The
shipments targeted last
week included precision-
guided missiles, the offi-
cials said.
Hezbollah chief Sheik
Hassan Nasrallah has said
in the past that his group
has missiles that can strike
anywhere in Israel, includ-
ing as far south as the Red
Sea resort of Eilat.
Meanwhile, Hezbollah
and Iran have become
increasingly involved in
Syria's civil war, supplying
troops and military advis-
ers to help Syrian President
Bashar Assad fight armed
j rebels trying to oust him.

Nasrallah spoke Thurs-
. day to mark the 25th an-
niversary of the founding
of Hezbollah's radio sta-
tion, Al-Nour, in a speech
televised in Beirut. Nasral-
lah has rarely appeared in
public since the 2006 war,
for fear of being targeted
by Israel.
Nasrallah said Hezbol-
lah could expect strategic
weapons from Syria in the
"Syria will give the re-
sistance special weap-
ons it never had before,"
Nasrallah said. "We mean
Nasrallah said the weap-
ons shipments were Syria's
response to the Israeli air-
strikes. "This is the Syrian
strategic reaction," Nasral-
lah said. "This is more im-
portant than firing a rocket
or carrying out an airstrike"
against Israel.
The military alliance be-
tween Syria and Hezbollah
will continue, the Hezbol-
lah chief said.
"We in the Lebanese re-
sistance declare that we
stand by the Syrian popu-
lar resistance and give our
material and moral sup-
port, and cooperate and
coordinate in order to lib-
erate the Syrian Golan," he

In a related develop-
ment, Israeli security of-
ficials said Thursday they
have asked Russia to can-
cel the imminent sale of
an advanced air defense
system to Syria.
The officials said Israel
shared information with
the United States in hopes
of persuading Russia to
halt the planned deal to
provide S-300 anti-aircraft
missiles. The Israeli offi-
cials spoke on condition
of anonymity because they

were not authorized to
brief reporters.
In Rome, Secretary of
State John Kerry said
Thursday the transfer of
advanced missile defense
systems from Russia to
Syria would be a "desta-

Kerry said the U.S. has
expressed concerns about

what such defensive sys-

the Bulls' rugged post-
season series against the
Miami Heat.
Looking for reinforce-
ments for its depleted
roster, Chicago is going
to have to wait awhile for
"I don't know. I want, to
play, but I don't know what
I can do," he said. "I just, I
haven't done anything."
Deng joined his team-
mates for the film ses-
sion covering Wednesday
night's 115-78 drubbing by
the Heat that evened the
series heading into Game 3
in Chicago on Friday night.
He also got on the court
and took a few jumpers,
but that was all he could
"Still day to day. He's feel-
ing a little bit better," coach
Tom Thibodeau said. "We'll
see tomorrow."
While Chicago was tak-
ing stock of its injuries
Kirk Hinrich had a sec-
ond MRI on his injured left
calf, and Derrick Rose was
the "same," according to
Thibodeau Miami was
bracing for the first game
of the series at the United
Center. It's the Heat's first
trip to Chicago since a
101-97 loss on March 27
snapped their 27-game
winning streak.
"We know that they call
it the 'Madhouse on Madi-
son' for a reason," said Mi-
ami guard DwyaneWade, a
Chicago-area native. "The
fans are very loud. At the
end of the day, once that
settles down, it's the game
of basketball and you have

to execute your game plan.
It's going to be the little
things that wins games for
your team."
The Heat did everything
right in Game 2, running
away from the Bulls after
a surprising 93-86 loss in
the series opener on Mon-
day night. A 62-20 run was
more than enough to wipe
away the residue from Mi-
ami's first playoff loss, and
MVP LeBron James had
only three points in the
tidal wave a scary statis-
tic for Chicago, and there's
The Game 2 blowout was
the 41st time that an NBA
team won a playoff game
by 35 or more points. In the
previous 40 occasions, the
team on top of the blowout
went on to win the series
36 times.
It's a good omen for Mi-
ami, but James knows
firsthand how it can turn
around in a hurry. He was
playing for Cleveland when
the Cavaliers lost 108-72 to
Washington in a 2008 play-
off game and went on to
win the series.
"It's just one game," he
said. "Even though you
got dominated the game
before and you didn't do
things right, it's still one

one game. They're back
in their home building,

will be without Deng, Hin-
rich and Rose once again.

MLB says 'improper call' made

The Associated Press

CLEVELAND Major League
Baseball says the umpires were
That doesn't help the Oakland
One day after umpire Angel Her-
nandez and his crew failed to re-
verse an obvious home run by A's
infielder Adam Resales following
a video review, MLB executive vice
president Joe Torre said an "im-
proper call" was made in.the ninth
inning of Wednesday's game be-
tween the Indians and Athletics.
However, despite pointing out the
mistake, Torre said the disputed call
will stand. The Indians won 4-3.
"By rule, the decision to reverse a
call by use of instant replay is at the
sole discretion of the crew chief,"
Torre said in a statement released
during Thursday's series finale. "In
the opinion of Angel Hernandez,
who was last night's crew chief,
there was not clear and convinc-
ing evidence to overturn the de-
cision on the field. It was a judg-
ment call, and as such, it stands as
"Home and away broadcast feeds
are available for all uses of instant
replay, and they were available to
the crew- last night. Given what we
saw, we recognize that.an improper
call was made. Perfection is an im-
possible standard in any endeavor,
but our goal is always to get the
calls right. Earlier this morning, we
began the process of speaking with
the crew to thoroughly review all
the circumstances surrounding last
night's decision."
Before MLB's ruling, As manager
Bob Melvin said, he still believed he
witnessed a home run and nothing
will change his mind.

Oakland Athletics manager Bob Melvin (left) argues with umpire Angel Hernandez
after a review failed to turn a double by Adam Resales into a home run in the ninth
inning of the A's baseball game against the Cleveland Indians on Wednesday in
Cleveland. Melvin was ejected. The Indians won 4-3.

With two outs, Resales sent a
drive to left that appeared to clear
the 19-foot-high outfield wall and
strike a railing. Melvin asked Her-
nandez and his crew to review
the hit, and three umpires left
the field to view replays in a des-
ignated area near their dressing
After a lengthy delay, the umpires
returned to the field and instructed
Resales to stay at second, a decision
that shocked the As, the Indians,
14,000 fans in attendance at Pro-
gressive Field and people watching
on television.
Melvin brought his lineup card
to home plate before Thursday's
game, his first face-to-face meet-

ing with Hernandez and his crew
since the disputed ruling. Mel-
vin was cordial and returned to
the dugout after having joked
earlier he hoped he wouldn't get
"I don't have much to say about
it," he said. "I'm not going to talk to
them about it."
Melvin was in contact with MLB
officials after Wednesday's game.
"I've heard from MLB and I'm not
going to say what they said," Mel-
vin said before the A's and Indians
wrapped up a four-game series. "It's
probably what the majority saw,
but what they're going to do from
here I haven't had any discussions
about that."

Westbrook trying to help

The Associated Press

Star point guard Russell
Westbrook expects to be
on crutches for about four
to five weeks as he returns
from knee surgery that has
knocked him out of the
Oklahoma City Thunder's
playoff run.
Westbrook held his first
interview session Thurs-
day since having surgery to
repair cartilage in his right
knee. He was hurt in Game
2 of Oklahoma City's first-
round playoff series with
The Thunder have gone
3-3 without him and head
to Memphis on Saturd4y
for Game 3 of the Western
Conference semifinals.
That series is tied 1-1.
Westbrook had never
missed a game in the
regular season or playoffs
- in his five NBA seasons
before the injury, and he
never had a serious injury
before that either.
"It's tough, man," West-
brook said after walking
into an interview room
on his crutches. "I don't
want to let my team down.
I want to compete. I love
playing. I want to play
in every game as long
I'm able to walk, but this
time I wasn't able to walk
around like I'm supposed
Westbrook's injury has
forced second-year guard
Reggie Jackson into the
starting lineup, while
three-time NBA scor-
ing champion Kevin Du-
rant has taken on more of
the ball-handling duties.
Durant is averaging 35.5
points, 10.5 rebounds and
6.3 assists since Westbrook
went down.
"I think we have a tough
group of guys finding a
way to win games. The
group of guys we have, I
think we have enough to
get a ring," Westbrook said.
'"In my honest opinion,
we've been together long
enough to be able to figure
things out when guys go

down, and I think you can
see that."
Westbrook has been un-
able to travel with the team,
and he won't be making
the trip to Memphis this
weekend. He said he has
been attending practices,
hanging around his team-
mates and trying to make
game days as normal as
possible even though he's
watching from a suite in-
stead of praying.
"As a point guard and a
leader of this team, my job
is to find a way where I can
help," Westbrook said. "My
teammates, the coaching
staff and the organization,
they've been a big sup-
porter of me and my job
is to give it back and help
them out as much as I can
and give my input."
Westbrookl was hurt
on April 24. when Rock-
ets rookie Patrick Bever-
ley lunged for a steal as
Westbrook stopped to call
a timeout in the second
quarter of Game 2. He re-
mained in the game, which
the Thunder won 105-102,
and it wasn't until two days
later that the team an-
nounced he'd'miss the rest

of the playoffs.
"When I was playing on
it, I was basically playing
on one leg, kind of hob-
bling around ... just trying
to find a way where I can
do what I can to help my
team win," Westbrook said.
"At the same time, I was in
Westbrook said the knee
initially felt "weird" and he
slammed his right hand
down on the scorer's table
knowing something was
wrong. He said his leg
stiffened up after halftime
and he described playing
through "a lot" of pain.
Westbrook didn't know
what to think about the
play that caused his injury.
It's a play he has made in
other games, including in
the Houston series.
"That's really something
I can't answer. I know I just
hope it wasn't a dirty play,"
Westbrook said.
Beverley has said he
wasn't trying to hurt any-
one and was simply trying
to make a play on the ball.
Westbrook said he hasn't
heard from Beverley since
the injury, but he's focused
on nioving forward.

For now, his rehab in-

quadriceps and keeping

It won't be until West-
brook gets off his crutches
that the team establishes
a timetable for him to get
back on the court. He said
he plans to stay in Okla-
homa City to do his rehab
during the offseason, in-
stead of returning home to

anything," Westbrook said.

Moyes leaving Everton to manage Man United

The Associated Press

- David Moyes inherited
one of the toughest and
most coveted jobs in soc-
cer on Thursday suc-
ceeding Alex Ferguson as
manager of mighty Man-
chester United.
Moyes is leaving Everton
to join the 20-time Eng-
lish champions. He has a
six-year contract and will
take charge of the newly
crowned Premier League
champs on July 1. 1
"It's a great honor to
be asked to be the next
manager of Manchester
United," Moyes said in a
statement "I am delighted
that Sir Alex saw fit to rec-
ommend me for the job. I
have great respect for ev-
erything he has done and
for the football club."
Ferguson announced on
Wednesday he is retiring
after nearly 27 years at Old
"I know how hard it
will be to follow the best
manager ever, but the
opportunity to manage
Manchester United isn't
something that comes
around very often and I'm
really' looking forward to
taking up the post next
The 50-year-old Moyes
is replacing the most suc-
cessful manager in British
soccer history. Ferguson
produced 13 of United's 20
English titles and a string
of other titles, including
two European Cups.
Moyes' arrival should
help ensure a smooth
transition, with the man-
aging job passing from
one Scotsman to another.
The 71-year-old Ferguson
remains at United as a

candidates that we felt
had the right attributes
we unanimously agreed
on David Moyes," Fergu-
son said. "David is a man
of great integrity with a
strong work ethic. I've ad-
mired his work for a long
time and approached him
as far back as 1998 to dis-
cuss the position of assis-
tant manager here."
The former Celtic player
made the switch to man-
agement at Preston North
End in 1998. His club was
promoted to the League
Championship two years
He joined Everton in 2002
and turned the Merseyside
club from a relegation con-
tender into a regular quali-
fier for European compe-
tition. In 2005, he guided
the club into the qualifying
rounds of the Champions
Ferociously ambitious
and with a sharp eye for
emerging talent, Moyes
has kept Everton near the
top of the Premier League
despite limited money to
attract the best players.

"There is no question
he has all the qualities
we expect of a manager
at this club," Ferguson
Moyes has shown loyalty
and staying power in his 11
years with Everton attri-

butes that should suit him
well in his next job. United
is trying to avoid any radi-
cal changes to its structure
after Ferguson joins the
boardroom when the sea-
son ends.
United is owned by the
Glazer family, which will be
relying on Moyes to main-
tain the club as a force in
global soccer. In particu-
lar, it wants to make sure
the team can service debts
of $572 million, accord-
ing to the latest financial
"His hard-working style
and steely determination
are characteristics we val-
ue at the club," co-chair-
man Joel Glazer said. "He
has impressed as a coach
for many years now and
we strongly believe he will
be able to take up from
where Alex is leaving off
by continuing this club's
tradition of flair football
played by exciting, world
class players."

J.A. Happ isn't sure how
he'll react when gets on a
mound again. One thing
he does know is that he's
going to try to forget
what happened Tuesday
Toronto's 30-year-old
left-hander returned

hours after he was struck
on the head by a line
drive that sent him to a
hospital for an overnight
Happ expects to make a
full recovery from a skull
fracture behind the left
ear that doctors believe
will heal on its own, add-
ing he doesn't anticipate
having any fear of return-
ing to work.
"I think you've just got
to get back out there and
try to forget about it,"
he said. "I won't know
until I'm out there, but I
don't anticipate it being a

get the opportunity.
The pitcher sprained
his right knee when he
dropped to the ground
Tuesday night, and that
could affect how soon
he'll be ready to pitch
Happ realizes his in-
juries could have been
"I feel really fortunate,"
he said after limping into
the auxiliary clubhouse
for a news conference
and climbing a couple
steps to sit behind a
"It looks like I moved
just a little bit. I don't re-
member doing that, but
it looks like it was just
enough to where it must
have caught me in a bet-
ter spot, because I think
it could have got me
head on," he said. "I've
got some stitches and
there's a fracture in the
skull, I suppose, behind
my ear, but it's not seri-
ous or threatening. We'll
let those heal."
Happ, who was put on
the 15-day disabled list,
had a'brief conversation
with Tampa Bay's Des-
mond Jennings, who hit
the line drive that caught
him squarely 9n the left
side of the head. Happ
shook hands with sev-
eral teammates outside
the Blue Jays clubhouse
while assuring each one:
"I'm fine."
"He just wished me
the best and hoped for
a quick recovery;" Happ
said. "Obviously, some-
thing like that is never in-
tentional. I let him know
that I knew that and I
appreciated him coming
over. It's a scary thing, I'm
sure on his end, too."

When Jennings arrived
at the ballpark he was
relieved to learn from
one of the Rays' trainers
that Happ appeared to
be OK.
"That enabled me to
breathe a little bit," Jen-
nings said. "But you still
don't know until you talk
to him, until you see him
face to face."
Happ remembers re-
leasing the ball, as well as
teammates talking to him
while he received medical
attention on the field.
"I don't remember see-
ing it," he said. "Just im-.-
mediate loud ringing in
my ear. Just pressure on
my ear, and I was on the
ground. That was kind of
it. It took me a few sec-
onds to kind of figure out
what was going on, but I
do remember them being
there ... the coaches and
Gibby (manager John
Gibbons) and obviously
the trainers. I was coher-
ent and talking pretty
He also called his moth-
er while an ambulance
was transporting him to
nearby Bayfront Medical
"They were holding the
phone up to my ear for
me. ... She was definitely
relieved, glad to hear my
voice," Happ said.-
The hit, still being re-
played on TV a day later,
left some of his fellow
players unsettled.
"I felt horrible yester-
day. I played with Happ
last year for a little bit,"
Chicago Cubs pitcher
Carlos Villanueva said.
"There's a lot of talk out
there about the gear and
protective stuff. Hopeful-
ly, they'll come out with
something that won't af-
fect us pitching out there,
but it's still such a fast
game. What happens if
the ball comes directly at
your face? There's noth-
ing you can do. You can't
pitch with a mask on. It.
just comes down to the
draw of the luck I guess."
Major League Baseball,
meantime, is trying to
determine the best way
to protect pitchers from
similar injuries.
The league's senior vice
president, Dan Halem,
said a half-dozen com-
panies were designing
headgear for pitchers
but no product so far was
sufficiently protective
and comfortable.
"If it doesn't absorb
enough impact, then it
may be ineffective," he
Dr. Gary Green, MLB's
medical director, said
the Head Injury Crite-
rion (HIC) scale is being
used to evaluate prod-
ucts and that a cap liner
likely would have to be 8

Great debut for Castro

Woods, Mcllroy
solid at Players
The Associated Press

Fla. Tiger Woods and
Rory Mcllroy had their best
start ever Thursday in The
Players Championship. It
still wasn't enough to catch
Roberto Castro, who had
never played the TPC Saw-
grass and made a debut he
won't soon forget,
Castro hit shots into tap-
in range on the famed 17th
and 18th holes on his way
to a 9-under 63 in per-
fect scoring conditions in
the morning. He tied the
course record held by Fred
, Couples and Greg Norman,
and it gave him a three-
shot lead the largest 18-
hole margin in 21 .years at
Sawgrass over Mcllroy
and Zach Johnson.
"I hit it close a lot," said
Castro, making it sound as
easy as it looked.
Woods had to work a
little harder in the after-
noon, when a breeze ar-
rived and the sun began to
make the green firm. Even
so, he was on the cusp of
his first bogey-free round
in his 16 years at The Play-
ers until his 8-iron from
200 yards went just over
the green and he flubbed
his chip. The bogey gave
him a 67, which was the
first time he has broken
70 in the opening round at
"It was a day that I felt I
had to shoot something in
the 60s,"Woods said. "Most
of the guys were under par
in the morning session."

played early broke par, a

72-foot-long Swedish
sailboat capsized Thurs-
day in San Francisco Bay
while practicing for the
upcoming America's Cup
races, killing an Olympic
gold medalist from the
United Kingdom and in-
juring another sailor, au-
thorities said.
Artemis Racing said An-
drew"Bart"' Simpson died
after the capsized boat's
platform trapped him
underwater for about 10
minutes around 1 p.m.
Simpson served as the
Swedish team's strategist
and had won one Olym-
pic gold medal and one
silver medal. He was 36
years old, according to
San Francisco Fire De-
partment officials.
Artemis said doctors
"afloat" with the team
and on shore couldn't
revive Simpson after
he was freed from the

team is devastated by
what happened," CEO
Paul Canyard said in a
statement posted on

The boat that capsized

maran that can reach
speeds of 45 mph.
Coast Guard Lt. Jeannie
Crump said the agency
did not know the extent
of the damage to the
boat. She said a com-
mercial salvage boat was
at the scene and would
tow the vessel to Clipper
Cove, betweenYerba Bue-

Crump added that
Coast Guard officials
weren't sure what caused
the boat to capsize. The
Swedish team has two
boats, she added.

Dear Annie: I'm concerned about my
sister's parenting style. "Sara" just went
through a nasty divorce, so we let her
move into a house we own next door.
Sara's kids spend a great deal of time
with us. What worries me is my 7-year-
old niece, 'Andrea." Andrea appears un-
derweight for her age and height. When
she has dinner here, she eats like she's
starving. Several weeks ago, Sara joined
us for dinner. She. gave her 5-year-old
son a much bigger portion than she gave
Andrea. When I mentioned it, Sara said
the pediatrician warned her that Andrea
is obese. I do not believe this.
Last week, when I was preparing the
kids an after-school snack, Andrea start-
ed crying. She said she was really hungry,
but if she ate anything, it would make her
mother angry because she is "so fat."
I spoke to the school social worker and
was told there is little they can do. I also
spoke to Sara about getting help, but she
became hysterical and slapped Andrea
for "telling tales." What else can I do?

Dear Sis: Sara should not be slapping

her daughter. You need to befriend your
sister so that she trusts you and her chil-
dren can turn to you for'help. It's difficult
to ascertain whether Sara is still stressed
from the divorce, simply needs better
parenting skills or there is something else
going on. You may be interpreting the
food issues through your own subjective
filter. Leave a message with the pediatri-
cian's office with your concerns. But do
not alienate Sara. Those kids need you.

Dear Annie: Some responses to "Your
Husband" indicated that he needed to
try harder to be intimate with his wife.
Maybe he did.
I tried talking to my wife. I shared and
cleaned, went grocery shopping, did
laundry and dishes. I took care of the
kids while she went out shopping. Giving
her flowers didn't work, small gestures
didn't work, and talking about her day
didn't work. Seeing a therapist didn't
work. I didn't cheat, because I didn't want
to lose my kids. Well, that didn't work, ei-
ther. She left with no explanation. It takes
two to make a marriage work:


South is in six spades. West leads the club
queen: four, eight (encouraging, showing the
king), ace. What are declarer's two primary
chances to bring home 12 tricks?
South has two potential losers: one diamond
and one club. He starts with only 11 top tricks:
seven spades, one heart, two diamonds and
one club. A 12th winner can be established if-
either the diamond finesse is working or the
hearts are dividing 4-3.
Since the finesse, if it loses, would b6 instant-
ly fatal (the defenders would cash a club trick),
it should be tried second if it is needed.
Declarer must play on hearts immediately.
He cashes his heart ace, leads a middle spade
to dummy's 10 (happy to see both opponents
follow suit), ruffs a heart high, plays a middle
spade to dummy's jack, and ruffs another heart
high. When the suit breaks 4-3, South leads
the spade three to dummy's four, ruffs another
heart, plays a diamond to the ace, and discards
a diamond or a club on the heart jack.
If hearts break 5-2 or 6-1, South would draw
trumps and run trumps, planning to rely on
the diamond finesse (but also having a red-suit
show-up squeeze if East has the long hearts).

Busch has solid test at Indy; 500 unlikely

The Associated Press

Busch wants to race an In-
dyCar at Indianapolis.
Just not now.
The 2004 Sprint Cup
champion kept Ryan
Hunter-Reay's primary car
out of trouble Thursday,
topping 218 mph on one
of the world's most pres-
tigious tracks. He became
the first driver to pass this
year's rookie test at India-
napolis Motor Speedway,
likely creating a rumor-
filled month of May.
"I really couldn't do it
this year because of the
stamina," Busch said. "My
hands were tense and firm
and that was only after 10
laps. Michael (Andretti)
wants to do it, but they've
already got five cars com-
mitted this year, so I think
the proper thing would
be to get some experience
with this car at another
Time is not something
Busch can spare right now.
\ His whirlwind schedule
over the past week has
taken him to Indy for NAS-
CAR's tire test, to Talladega
where he ended the race by
going airborne and land-
ing on Ryan Newman's car
and now off to Darlington
Raceway, where Busch will
try tQ pick up an elusive

NASCAR driver Kurt Busch drives down the front straightaway in an Andretti Autosport Indycar
during a testing session at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway in Indianapolis on Thursday.

win that he barely missed
out on 10 years ago.
In between all the Sprint
Cup obligations, Busch
still accepted Andretti's
personal offer to try run-
ning an IndyCar on the se-
ries' best-known track. He
flew back to town Wednes-
day with his father, got
some advice from former
Penske Racing teammate
Sam Hornish Jr., the 2006
Indy winner, and restarted
the talk about attempting
"the double" compet-
ing in the Indianapolis 500
and Coca-Cola 600 on the
same day.
SJohn Andretti, Robby
Gordon and Tony Stewart
are the only drivers who
have tried to run all 1,100-

miles in one day. Stewart
had the most success, fin-
ishing sixth in Indy and
third in Charlotte, N.C., in
2001, and he remains the
only driver to ever com-
plete 'every lap of both
Busch might be the next
one to try it and already
has three advantages over
anyone else who may. try
to becomeoa late entry in
the Indianapolis 500 field:
He's already been fitted for
a seat, he has passed his
rookie test and he has an
interested owner with cars
that could be available
once the first five qualify
for the May 26 race.
"There's going to be a lot
of swirling that goes on

after day like today, after
reaching 218 on your first
day around this place,"
Busch said after posting
a fast lap of 218.210 mph.

"But that doesn't mean
anything because I need
more time."
Andretti acknowledged
that's a possibility later this
year, if Busch can work out
the details with his Cup
The five-hour run Thurs-
day couldn't have gone
much smoother, a refresh-
ing change for a driver who
has a reputation for wreck-
ing cars and getting angry.
It was a warm, humid,
overcast day ideal con-
ditions for Busch to get uip
to speed quickly. Andretti
and two-time IndyCar
winner James Hinchcliffe
were both around to coach
Busch, too. And there were
no complaints on either
"I think he had a lot of

fun today, and we had a
lot of fun today," Andretti
said. "But I think he said
he would like to run some
other ovals before coming
here (to race)."
The usual Brickyard trim-
mings were missing.
Rather than hearing
thousands of fans roar as
he came down the front
straightaway or dozens of
engines humming, Busch
provided a solo act for a
few school children and
chaperones "touring the
track and a handful of die-
hard fans placed on the
mounds near the -infield
museum. The speedway
officially opens for prac-
tice Saturday, with qualify-
ing slated for May 18-19.

Roger Federer returns the ball during the match against Kei Nishikori from Japan at the Madrid
Open tennis tournament, in Madrid on Thursday. Federer lost the match.

Federer upset

at Madrid Open

The Associated Press

MADRID Second-
ranked Roger Federer lost
to Kei Nishikori 6-4, 1-6, 6-
2 in the third round of the
Madrid Open on Thursday,
leaving Rafael Nadal as the
clear title favorite.
After recovering from
Nishikori's strong start on
the Caja's Magica's new red
clay courts, Federer looked
as if he'd found his stride as
he roared back in the sec-
ond set.
But Nishikori reasserted
his ground game in the
decider after breaking the
defending champion for a
3-1 advantage and held on
for the surprising victory to
reach the quarterfinals.
"He was my idol and to
beat him was one of the
goals for my tennis career,"
the 16th-ranked Nishikori
said. "Beating Roger is,
yeah ... I need a couple of
days to celebrate."
Federer's early exit leaves
Nadal as the apparent
front-runner after world
No. 1 Novak Djokovic
bowed out on Tuesday.
Earlier, Nadal cruised into
the quarterfinals with a 6-
2, 6-3 victory over Mikhail
Serena Williams and Ma-
ria Sharapova also reached
the quarters in straight
Federer came to Ma-
drid after a seven-week
layoff. The Swiss star said
the gusting winds hurt his
game, but he gave all the
credit to Nishikori.
"He was the better player
_Jtoday for sure," said Fe-

derer, who besides win-
ning here last year had
also won in 2006 and
2009. "I was lacking con-
trol from the baseline and
that carried through from
start, to finish. Overall I'm
disappointed with my
Federer said he will not
change his plans, as he
will now train for Rome
and then the French
This was Nishikori's
fourth win over a top-five
opponent. He beat world
No. 1 Djokovic in 2011 and
has beaten David Ferrer
twice. Nishikori will play
Pablo Andujar after he ad-
vanced when fellow Span-
iard Daniel Gimeno-Traver
Nadal's commanding
win over Youzhny featured
an entire array of winning
Having already estab-
lished control by stealing
Youzhny's second service
game, Nadal kept' a point
alive with a deft no-look
backhand flick before nail-
irg a winner down the line
to hold his serv6 and de-
light his fans.
The fifth-ranked Span-
iard then broke Youzhny
again by dinking the ball
over the net while on the
run, giving it so much
backspin it twisted away
from the Russian.
Nadal, who is trying to
reach his seventh straight
final since returning from
injury, improved to 28 wins
and two losses on the year.
He will next play either
Ferrer or Tommy Haas.
