Bicycles tojoin Harvest Festival

Vol.90 No. 196

Vintage and antique cars. and
trucks-have been a big attraction
at the annual Graceville Har-
vest Festival for the past several
years; for the past half-decade,
the display has drawn more than.
200 participant vehicle owners
and helped pull in thousands of
spectators from all over the Flor-
ida Panhandle, lower Alabama
and beyond.
Instead of paying a cash entry
fee, those who display a vehicle
bring at least one toy to help

make a Graceville child's Christ-
mas a little brighter. Organizers
say many of the oWners bring
more than one toy. They've been
so generous, infact, that Gradev-
ille is usually able to give each
child in need four or five toys for
Many of the displaying car
owners are rewarded with a little,
pre-Christmas bling themselves.
Competition trophies are award-
ed for excellence in a particular
judging category at the car and
truck show; more than 120 tro-
phies were awarded last year.

This year. those four-wheeled
vehicles will share the spotlight
with some, two-wheeled cous-
ins. A threetcourse bicycle ride is
being added to the 2013 festival,
which is et ifor Oct. 19. The ride
has three routes from which rid-
ers can choose; there's a 15-mile
short coui'e, a 26-mile mid-
range route and a 50-mile route
for the heartiest riders. They'll
all start and end atthe Graceville.

Chipola paramedic student

returns to class after burn

Special to the Flordidan

Chippla College para.
medic student James
Freudenberg has returned
.to classes nearly a month
after suffering severe stean
., burns fighting a residential
fire on Aug. 12.
A native of Fort Lauder
his fire-fighting training a
Tallahassee Community
College. He had worked
for Jackson County Fir
and Rescue for three-year!
and was halfway through
Chipola's paramedic pro.
gram before the incident
put his job and schooling
on hold. ,

While .fighting. a fire
in a two-story house in
SMarianna, something
s went wrong, and a',blast
d.. of steam .knocked him
1 off his feet ontoli the floor.
a Using his training skills,
1d. he followed the fire hose
to get out of the home
- and' was life-flighted to
1 Tallahassee with third-de-
t gree burns.,.
y After 10 days in a Mo-
d bile, Ala., burn unit and
e several skin grafts later,
s he returned to Marianna
i to begin his .recovery and
- ..return to classes., Freud-
t enberg praised his fel-
g low. Chipola students
and instructors for their

support. "The guys in class
knew I would be out of
work. They visited me in
the burn tunit and helped
me with my book work
in the paramedic class. I
made,.a 100 on my next
test and it was one of the
toughest ones in the class.
I couldn't have done it
without them."
Keith Maddox, Chipola
paramedic instructor and
EMS director, says Freud-
enberg will complete the
written portion of the
course this term and will
finish the physically de-.
manding clinical portion
of the class beginning in

' "James has been a won-
derful student," Maddox
said. ."He had a base of
knowledge from his work
as a fire-fighter and he's
worked very hard in the
paramedic program. After
the incident, he stayed, in
touch with the instructors
and 'students and stayed

Our Opinion


school meals

A anyone who has raised children can attest that
Youngsters can be picky eaters, and it's often less
.1I.of a battle to simply provide the foods they'll eat
rather than trying to train them to eat English peas;
Brussels sprouts or broccoli.
However, there must be balance; otherwise, we wind
up where we are now with double-digit obesity rates
among children and a whopping 26-plus percent obe-
sity rate among adults in Florida.,
While changes in home diets are paramount, school
lunchroom fare deserves a second look as well, con-
sidering that there are roughly 3 million school-aged
children in Florida, many of take at least five meals a
week there for most ofthe year, and some have break-
fast there as well through federal programs.
The good news is that obesity rates among Florida
children are falling, currently atabout 12 percent. But
more can be done to continue this trend.
Earlier this month, the USDA rolled out new rules '
with regard to schoolmeals in an effort to put more-
healthy food in front of youngsters who purchase food
in the lunchrooms. The USDA is giving schools a year
to adhere to, the new rules, which will require whole
grains, more fruits and vegetables, and milk with lower
fat content ..
They might consider followingthe lead of some
schools that have~phased out the availability of sugary
drinks and snacks for purchase by students. According
to the Centers for Disease Control's 2010 Florida School
Health Profiles, about 35 percent of Florida schools did
not sell less nutritious foods and beverages anywhere
outside the school food service program, and 16.7 per-
cent offered non-fried vegetables and fruits in vending
Machines, canteens and snack bars. 'Further, almost
half of Florida schools prohibit advertising and promo-
tion of candy, soft drinks and fast food restaurants on
school grounds.
* Those are sound practices, and all school administra-
tors should consider making them permanent policy
Meanwhile, it's difficult to argue with some admin-
istrators' objections that students will find the new,
healthier-meals unappealing, a longtime parental ad-
Sage rings true: It's good for them, and if they're hungry
enough, they'll eat it.

Don't stop making sense

f Bret Baier ever needed an
excellent excuse to get out
of something, he had one on
Sept. 10. The Fox News host was'
booked to interviewWashington,
D.C.'s Cardinal Donald Wuerl at an
event hosted by the John Carroll
Society. But when he signed up for
the event organized by Catholic
Beltway lawyers, he had no idea
that the president of the United
States would choose this particular
Tuesday night for a prime-time.
address about a possible military
strike in Syria. It was whirlwind of a
news day, to say the least.
But Baier didn't back out. Dur-
ing the course of the hour with the
cardinal, he talked openly about
how he had fallen away from his
Catholic faith, and that it took
fatherhood and facing his young
son's heart problems to bring him
back, In our secularized society, we
all too often consider religious faith
something merely for the hard days
a safe harbor in a storm-and
a nice bit of nostalgia to help ease
life's pain and stress. ;
Addressing how Catholi-
cism is relevant in 2013, anddoing
so in a town where "when you say
goodmomrning to someone and
you expect to get a commentary
back," Cardinal Wuerl said that the
vocation of a Christian is not fun-
damentally "to criticize or critique,
but to walk with others on the road
to Christ."
By showing up, Baier was stress-
ing the importance of faith and


the Church in his life and career.
Baier also confessed that the pope
may get a little more coverage on
his show than some others, but he
also argued that as a world leader,
newsmen ought to be paying more
The Church need to be a witness
to human values and Christ's mes-
sage, to be the "conscience of the
nation," Cardinal Wuerl said, As it
looked like striking Syria was a fore-
gone conclusion; the pope prayed
for peace. His words: "Each of us
deep down should ask ourselves: Is
this really the world that I desire?
Is this really theworld that we all
carry in our hearts? And does not .
true freedom mean choosing ways
in this world that lead to the good
of all and are guidedby love?"
The president's words that night
were strikingly different. Hehad
already lost me when he asked his
"friends on thdleft ... to reconcile
your belief in freedom and dignity
for all people with those images of
children writhing in pain, and go-
ing still on a cold hospital floor."
I couldn't help but think of the

perennial (yet underreported) sto-
ries of Americanbabies born after
botched abortions, babies who are
left to die in American hospitals.As
a state politician in Illinois, Obama
once argued against assuring such
babies legal protection, even as
hospitals in his state were practic-
ing the reprehensible technique of
As the week progressed and the
president of Russia seemed to be
leading the world in a game of*
power politics and giving shout-
outs to the pope and God in the
NewYork Times, a prayer for peace
includes reconciling what the pope
said about freedom with what we
tend to say it is. It's long past time
we consider that, as Americans,
we simply aren't making sense
anymore. In our lives andin our
politics, there is often a disconnect
between things as they actually are
and what we are saying anddoing
, about them.
When you lose a common lan-
guage and set of ideals, you simply
stop making sense. What would the
world be like if there was no one to
say, "Thou shalt not kill," Cardinal
Wueri asked, rhetorically, as he
was talking with Baier. What is the
world like when people stop listen-
ing? That's a question America is
flirting with finding out the answer

House immigration reform stuck in neutral

"R member the Gang of Seven?
SIt's the House bipartisan
.RL. immigration reform working
group used to be the Gang of
Eight before Republican Rep. Raul
Labrador quit in frustration -- and
it has been rumored for months
to be on the verge of releasing a
comprehensive reform bill. ,
It still hasn't happened. And it's
unlikely to happen anytime soon.
The group got almost nothing,
done during the August recess; the
members barely kept in touch' with
each other. And then the concerns
some Republican Gang mem-
bers heard at town hall meetings
convinced them that the proposal's.
security and enforcement measures
must be strengthened before GOP
colleagues would.even consider.
"What can we do to satisfy our
guys that there is going to be border
,security?" asks one pro-reform Re-
publican. The answer is not clear.
By definition, the GOP Gang
members Reps. John Carter and
Sam Johnson of Texas, plus Rep.
Mario Diaz-Balart of Florida -- are
the Republicans most open to craft-
ing a comprehensive measure. If
they can't come up with something
that would appeal to more than a
handful of their fellow Republicans,
then things don't look good.
SThe job is harder now than it
was in the spring. Since the Gang
beganwork, Republican distrust
of President Obama, already high,
has grown considerably. When"
GOP lawmakers see the president
enforcing parts of Obamacare while
ignoring others; when they see him
acting unilaterally on issues (the
environment is one example) that
should be the business of Congress;
when they see him threaten to go
around lawmakers on questions
as diverse as immigration and war
in Syria all those things make
it harder for Republicans to -vote


for any measure that depends on
the president to enforce it. Today,
Republicans are even less inclined
to go along with Obama than they
were in June.
Most of the pressure to produce
a bill seems to have disappeared.
Recently, House Majority Leader
Eric Cantor sent Republican mem-
bers an agenda for September and
October. The House will work on a
continuing resolution to fund the
government, Cantor said. It will
work on a measure to extend the
debtlimit. On a bill to reform the
food stamp system. On Obamacare.
And, of course, on Syria.
Only after touching on all those
topics did Cantor mention im-
migration. "The Judiciary and
Homeland Security commit-
tees have produced a number of
specific bills which the House may
begin considering this fall," Cantor
wrote. "Before we consider any
other reforms, itis important that
we pass legislation securing our
borders and providing enforcement
mechanisms to our law enforce-
ment officials."
Look at the qualifiers: The House
"may" begin considering some bills
-then again, maybe not but it
must actually pass border security
,and enforcement measures before
any other proposals can even be
taken up. Cantor left himself room
to do anything, but plenty of reason
to do nothing.
Then there's the problem of
time. The House will of course be

involved in whatever happens in
Syria, but muchmore time-con-
suming will be the fight over a
funding resolution. Republicans are
deeply divided about it Speaker
John Boehner and Cantor had to
retreat from a proposed continuing
resolution this week in the face of
conservative opposition. Finding
a way forward will take time. And
that's before the House gets to the
question of the debt limit. '
Given all that, Cantor indicated
, the House might cancel a recess
scheduled for the week of Sept. 23.
That will give lawmakers a little
more breathing room.
But even if the House had all
the time inthe world, and an
absolutely empty calendar, im-
migration reform would still be in
deep, deep trouble. It's not failing
because Congress doesn't have
time to do it. It's failing because
Congress cannot agree on how to
do it.
As reform supporters envisioned
it, this was to be the moment
Washington debated an immigra-
tion bill widely seen as the sig-
nature achievement of President
Obama's second term. Now, it's
going nowhere fast. The president
is distracted. And those Republi-
cans who believe a Senate-style
comprehensive reform measure is
essential to improving the GOP'S
prospects with Hispanic voters are
now a mostly silent minority.
Immigration reform will not
disappear as an issue; its advo-
cates in both parties are organized,
well-funded, and determined. But
the energy that just a few months
ago seemed to be pushing reform
inexorably ahead now appears
completely dissipated. And there
seems little chance it will come
back, at least this year.

Jennifer Mee (center) enters the courtroom as jury selection begins her murder trial Tuesday

The 22-year-old Mee
is charged with first-de-
gree murder in the death
of Shannon Griffin, a 22-
year-old Walmart worker.
Prosecutors say Mee lured

Griffin to a St. Petersburg
home' under the pretense
of buying marijuana but
instead two of Mee's friends
robbed him at gunpoint.
Griffin struggled with the
suspects and was shot sev-
eral times.
Detectives said Mee ac-

cepted .a friend request'
from Griffin on a. social
networking website five'or'
six days before the robbery,
but it was unclear if Griffin
had recognized her as the
"hiccup girl."
Mee's co-defendant,
LaRon Raiford, was con-

victed and sentenced to
life in prison in August.
Lament Newton, the other
co-defendant who was
also Mee's boyfriend at the
time of the crime, has not
yet gone to trial.
At issue is whether Mee
isa bystander or the per-
son who planned the rob-
bery prosecutors say
she played an active role
in planning the robbery,
which lead to Griffin's
death. Under Florida law,
a person can be convicted
of murder if he or she com-

killed as a result.
John Trevena, Mee's at-
torney, said his client
suffered from Tourette's
Syndrome, a neurological
disorder that can cause in-
voluntary movements and
speech problems. He said
that the/hiccups were one
symptom of Tourette's and
said Tuesday that he will
mention that during the
trial. ,
"It won't be used as a
direct cause for what oc-
curred 'but it might help
explain .her errors in

judgment and her often
thoughtless response to
law enforcement," said
Trevena, who said that
Mee did not participate in
the robbery.
He added that his client
has been diagnosed with
schizophrenia and that he
plans to explain that to the
jury as well.
Trevena said Mee has
been in jail pending trial
since her October 2010 ar-
rest much of that time
in isolation because de-
tention deputiPs sayshe is

Stewart named commissioner

Stewart, a veteran Florida
educator brought in to
guide the state's education
efforts after the abrupt
resignation last month of
Tony Bennett, was elevated
Tuesday to the post of state
education commissioner.
The appointed board
that oversees Florida's
education system voted
unanimously Tuesday to
put Stewart, who has been
interim commissioner, in
charge of the state agency
that deals with everything
from school grades to fi-
nancial aid for colleges.
Board members praised
Stewart, 60, before voting
unanimously to make her
But the decision to
appoint, her instead of
launching a nationwide
search was also a recogni-
tion that Florida's educa-
tion system is at a critical
juncture amid complaints
and criticisms over the
state's A-to-F grading sys-
tem and its switch to Com-
mon Core State Standards.
There were also fears it
would be hard to conduct
a full-blown search with
Fla. Gov. Rick Scott facing
re-election next year.
'I can assure ,you that
I'm cognizant'of the times
we are in and the critical
nature of the work we are
doing," Stewart said after
the vote.

Judge urged to

approve BP claim


The Associated Press

admiinistrator of BP's set-
tlement with Gulf Coast
residents and businesses
following its oil spill in
the Gulf of Mexico asked
a federal judge Tuesday to
reject BP's bid to slash his
office's budget by at least
$25.5 million.
Plaintiffs' attorneys
who brokered the multi-
billion-dollar, settlement
also urged the' court to
approve a fourth-quarter
budget request of $131.2
million for the office of
court-appointed claims
administrator Patrick
Juneau. "
* In separate court fil-
ings, Juneau and plain-
tiffs' lawyers Stephen
Herman and James Roy
argued that BP is trying to
slow or even shut down
the settlement process
by seeking the budget
BP attorneys com-
plained in a court filing
last week ,that Juneau's
request is excessive and
shouldn't be approved.
Herman and Roy, how-
ever, said the company is
trying to distract Juneau
and his staff "with bur-
densome requests while

depriving the Program of
the administrative funds
necessary to,, efficiently
and effectively operate."
"BP's agreement to fund
the program at 'no more
than $85.6 million' a
slashing of over one-third
of the originally submit-
ted budget -... is clearly
a bad faith attempt by BP
to compel layoffs that will
slow down, if not cripple,
the processing and pay-
ment of claims," the. law-
yers wrote...
Last month, U.S. Dis-
trict Judge Carl Barbier
ordered the ,. London-
.based oil giant, to pay
more than $130 million
for Juneau's third-quarter
budget despite the com-
pany's objections.'
Juneau's lawyers, said
BP's "strident demands
for immediate cuts" must
be weighed against the
negative impact on tens
of thousands of claim-
ants still waiting for their
claims to be processed
from the 2010 spill.
'"While more efficiency
is always desirable, there
must be. a balance be-
tween cutting. costs in
claims processing and the
ultimate goal of bringing
this Program to a timely
conclusion," they wrote.

Joe Nakash (center) with VM South Beach LLC speaks to the media after having placed the
winning bid of $41.5 million for the South Beach mansion that once belonged to Gianni Versace
during anauction, Tuesday. .

bid Donald Trump, whose

said. A bankruptcy judge
is expected to approve' the
deal Wednesday. ,
The mansion has been
officially named Casa Ca-
suarina for more than a
decade, operating first as
,a private club and then as
a boutique hotel until ear-
lier this year. But locals still
refer to it as "the Versace
mansion." It was .initially
listed for sale at $125 mil-

lion last year.
The asking price dropped
to $75 million by June, and
Nakash said he had been
prepared to offer that
much for the property.
"Have you ever been in-
side? You will understand,'
how beautiful it is. The art,
the pool, everything," Na-
kash said.
Even if the Versace fam-
ily declines to license their
name, Nakash said he
planned to honor the de-
signer with a plaque mark-

in real estate in Miami,,-still
has his ,Casa Casuarina

wallet.. Standing outside
the mansion, he said the
bidders -knew the prop-
erty came with a cache

High-fiber cereals also can satisfy your taste buds

By the editors of Consumer Reports

Fiber-rich cereals have
made progress on the road
to tastiness. Fourteen years
ago, Consumer Reports
found that most high-fiber
cereals "tasted more like
straw than grain." But in
its latest tests of 26 cereals,
most with at least 6 grams
of fiber, more 'than two-
thirds tasted very good or

ters have advice on how to
get the best for breakfast

you can buy shredded

categories, many of the
cereals taste quite simi-

lar, and there's a CR Best

The only cereal that was

has just 2 grams of fiber

all large and small clus-

almonds, raisins, crinber-

Despite the benefits of
fiber it can help control
appetite and weight, and
might help lower the risk
of heart disease and Type
2 diabetes the Depart,
ment of Agriculture says
American adults consume
an average of just 15 grams
a day. That's far below the
25 grams recommendedfor
women and 38 for men.
Many foods ,are naturally
high in fiber, but cereals
are one of the most conive-
nient ways to get it. Some.
cereal makers add inulin
(usually from chicory-root
fiber or extract) to boost fi-
ber. Although cereal man-
ufacturers often tout fiber
levels, Consumer Reports
notes that you'll hear other
boasts, too. Claims for the
tested cereals inclkide "as
much protein as an egg"
(Kashi GoLean Crunch and
Kashi GoLean Fiber Twigs),
and "no GMOs," referring
to genetically modified or-
ganisms (Cascadian Farms
Organic OatA and Honey
as well as Nature's Path Or-
ganic Flax). .
'A misleading claim for
Kellogg's Frosted Mini-
Wheats that it was "clin-
ically shown to improve
kids' attentiveness by near-
ly 20 percent" recently
resulted in the company's
agreement to pay $4 mi-

lion to settle a class-action
The tested cereals can
also be distinguished by
their calorie counts, rang-
ing from 60 to 260 per

Occupy Wall Street marks 2nd anniversary
*',O C P et anmvers' "*' ',' ''. v

The Associated Press

NEW YORK About 100 mem-
bers of Occupy Wall Street returned
Tuesday to the, small plaza near the
New York Stock Exchange that once
teemed with thousands of people
protesting financial inequality,
marking the second anniversary of
their movement's beginnings. .
Small groups of protesters marched
around the streets near Zuccotti Park
in the morning, while another march
to Washington 'Square Park clogged
sidewalks in the early afternoon. The
protesters were scattered in smaller
groups around NewYork City.
An "assembly for the 99 percent"
was held in'the afternoon at Zuccot-
ti, .a nod to the massive general as-
sembly meetings that were held on a
Daily basis in the.park at the height of
the movement.

"We're still out' here fighting for
economic justice. The bankers still
have all the power," protester Lin-
. nea Paton said. "They've bought our
government and we need a people's
movement to do that, and the move-,
ment is still here."
But the movement has splintered
since Mayor Michael Bloomberg had
police raid the park and break up the
encampment in November 2011.
Withoutleaders or specific demands,
Occupy turned into an amorphous
protest against everything wrong
with the world.
Occupy was perhaps at its most
effective in the aftermath of Su-
perstorm Sandy, when organizers
played a role in grassroots disaster
relief across the city. They organized
donation hubs, delivered food and
medications to storm victims and
helped people repair their homes.

"We're here to celebrate two years:
We're still here, still fighting, still
strong," protester Sumumba Sobuk-
we told a small crowd gathered on
the steps leading into the park. "And
we're still Occupy."
But the question of what Occupy is
at this point remains muddied by the
vast number of competing interest
groups promoting their own causes
under the Occupy banner.
A website called "Occu Evolve," a
subgroup that says it is devoted to
"expanding" Occupy into a move-
ment, posted a long list of activities
planned throughout the day that
will be hosted by various protest
groups, including Alternative Bank-
ing Working Group of Occupy Wall
Street, Families of Police Violence,
Money Wars Performers, Occupy
Staten Island and OccupyWall Street

Navy Yard gunman told police he was hearing voices

The Associated Press

month before he went on
the rampage that left 13
dead, Washington Navy
Yard gunman Aaron Alexis
complained to police in
Rhode Island that peo-
ple were talking to him
through the walls and ceil-
ings of his hotel rooms and
sending microwave vibra-
tions into his body to de-
prive him of sleep.
The account, contained
in an Aug. 7 report from
Newport, R.I., police, adds
to the picture that has
emerged of an agitated
and erratic figure whose
behavior and mental state
had repeatedly come to
authorities' attention but
didn't, seem to affect his
security clearance to do
defense work.
. Alexis, a 34-year-old
information, technology
employee at a defense-re-
lated computer company,
used a valid pass Monday
to get into the Navy Yard
and killed 12 people before
he was slain by police in a
shootout that lasted more
than a half-hour.

Essential personnel are allowed into a closed Washington Navy
Yard in Washington, on Tuesday, Sept. 17, the day after a gun-
man launched an attack inside the Washington Navy Yard on
Monday, spraying gunfire on office workers at the heavily se-
cured military installation in the heart of the nation's capital.

A day after the assault,
the motive was still a mys-
tery. U.S. law enforcement
officials told The Associat-
ed Press that investigators

Alexis, a former Navy
reservist, had been under-
going mental health treat-
ment from Veterans Affairs
since August but was not
stripped of his security
clearance, according to the

law' enforcement officials,
who spoke on condition
of anonymity because the
criminal investigation was
still.goin'g on.
He had- been suffering
a host of serious mental
problems, including para-
noia and a sleep disorder,
and had been hearing
voices in his head, the of-
ficials said.
The assault -is raising
more questions about the
adequacy ;of the back-
ground checks done on

contract employees who
hold security clearances
- an issue that came up
recently with National Se-
curity Agency leaker Ed-
Ward Snowden.
Navy Secretary Ray Ma-
bus ordered two security
reviews Tuesday of how

bases and how accurately
it screens its workers.

security at all department
installations worldwide.

worked on details of a plan
for, Syria to turn over its
weapons, and Obama and
Russian President Vladimir
Putin, Assad's top interna-

that approach through the
United Nations.
"Secretary Kerry made
it clear thai they and the
Russians are serious about
Syria executing on this

Murphy, D-Conn., an op-
ponent of military action,
said following the briefing.
"He also made it clear that

firmed the use of sarin in
last month's attack, Russia
blamed the rebels while

Lady Hornets get key win over Graceville

The Cottonrdale Lady Hornets
picked up their second match
victory of the season Tuesday
afternoon at Graceville High
School, knocking off the GHS
Lady Tigers in three sets.
Cottondale (2-5) won the first
set 25-21, the. second 25-17, and
then closed it out in the third
with a 25-15 victory.
The win came on the heels of
a solid effort in a four-set loss to
Chipley on Monday night, and
Lady Hornets coach Tara Jurgon-
ski said Tuesday's win was a big
one for her club.
"We played a lot, better. It was
kind of a hard environment to
play in with it beifg an in-school
game. We really couldn't hear
other, so we were forced to com-
municate, which was a good
thing," she said. "The girls played
real hard. We needed to be able
to win that one. The girls were
pretty pumped afterwards."
Sue Ellen Mosier had a nice
game for the Lady Hornets with
19 assists and two ace serves,

while Cameron McKinney had
a team-best 10 digs, and Con-
nor Melvin led the way with five
Rebecca Mullins also had three
kills for Cottondale, and Jakeena
Borders added two ace serves.
For Graceville, the loss was the
10th straight to start the season,
with Lady Tigers coach Rochelle
Summerwell sayingher teamjust
didn't have consistent enough
focus to come out, on top.'
"I told the girls they have to
play hard the whole game. When
we play hard, we're doing good.
But then we sit on' our heels and
let them come back," she said.
The Lady Tigers led early on
in the first and second sets be-
fore relinquishing the lead to
The Graceville junior varsity

It's hard for the sixth-

Still, afterward .it was
Clowney's foot pain that
took center stage.
Clowney said he's han-

Rebels rest, prep

for tough month

OXFORD, Miss. Mis-

imagined a much better
start to the season. ,
The 21st-ranked Rebels
have won three straight
games including road
matchups with Vander-
bilt and Texas and now
get a week of rest to make
some corrections and get
players healthy.
That's. good, because
the schedule is about to
get even tougher.

ing with the top-ranked

"That's, got to be the
toughest stretch of games
that anyone is. going to
have to play this year,"
coach Hugh Freeze said.
"We need this open week.
We need to get ',,people
healthy. We need every-
one who is able arid eligi-
ble to play ready to go for
these games, so this week,
comes at a good time."
Freeze says his team's
ability to handle adver-
sity -should. help during

the coming month. The
Rebels were trailing in the
second half against both
Vanderbilt and Texas be-
fore rallying for wins.
-But the euphoria from
those big victories is tem-
pered by the realization
that it's only going to get
more difficult and the
Rebels are far from a per-
fect team.
There are still occa-

Stoops: Bell will be QB against Irish

The Associated Press

NORMAN, Okla. Okla-
homa coach Bob Stoops
named Blake Bell his start-
ing quarterback against
Notre Dame immediately
following the junior's vir-
tuoso performance last
weekend against Tulsa.
Bell did. in three hours
what it took Trevor Knight
an entire offseason and
preseason to do, though
Stoops was careful Mon-
day not to say the decision
was written in stone for the
rest of the season.
"We are not going to sit
here and define all that,"
Stoops said. "Blake's the
guy right now. We will see
from there how things go
in practice and games and
see how Kendal (Thomp-
son), and Trevor continue
to work, too. We'll take that
as it comes."
Bell completed 27 of 37
passes for 413 yards and
four touchdowns in a 51-
20 victory over the Golden
Hurricane, .a performance
Stoops said was the best
Debut in the program's his-
tory for a quarterback in
his first start.
"That's no surprise," of-
fensive lineman Darryl
Williams said. 'All of our
quarterbacks are good.
They all are good enough
to play. So it's no surprise

to any of us, I don't think."
It was, however, a sur-
prise to fans who had
come to believe Bell wasn't
a good passer; after he
played primarily in goal-
line situations last season.
It was, the main reason
many thought he lost the

competition for the start-
ing job to Knight when the
season began.
But Stoops .contends
that Bell's passing ability
has never been in doubt.
He said what the No.. 14
Sooners (3-0) had to find
out was how he would re-

spond as the starter once
the game began.
"I think the fact that
Blake has been in for two
.years, in critical. tough,
high-pressure situations,
on third and fourth down,
in goal-line and red zone
stuff, 'he knew how to

handle that," Stoops said.
"I recall that they said the
first time we put him in at
Kansas State, to run one of
those plays in the red zone,
the first time he couldn't
get the play -out of his:
mouth in the huddle. *
"He couldn't, even talk.

The guys, were chuckling
about it afterward. That
was two years ago.", :
Stoops said it wasn't
true that Oklahomd used
a more wide-open offense
for Bell compared to what'
had been a run-heavy look
under Knight. He said .de-
fenses and matchups dic-
tate what the Sooners call.
"That's all part of game
planning," Stoops said.
."We don't have two differ-
ent offenses. That is some-
thing you guys can try and
muster up. We 'don't have
two offenses, and we don't
have one tailored for one
guy and one the other."
Even though Stoops
wouldn't name a starterfor
the rest of the season, he's
still impressed with the
way Bell was ready .to go
and took.advantage of the
"It's a testament to his
character that he didn't get
down, he didn't get nega-
tive, he kept working,"
Stoops said. "He got his
opportunity and was ready
for it. He took all kinds of
advantage of it. When you
go through a year, some-
body has to stepup and
continue to play for the
team. Blake is a great ex-
ample of persevering and
get your opportunity and
take advantage of it."

Oklahoma State names L

former official for review

The Associated Press

Qklahoma State has ap-
pointed a former NCAA of-
ficial to investigate alleged
misconduct in the football
School president Burns
Hargis and the Board of
Regents, said Monday
that Charles E. Smrt will
lead an independent re-
view of alleged violations
first reported by Sports
"While the articles do
not implicate any current
coaches or players to have
direct involvement in any
alleged misconduct, we
have a responsibility to
confront these disturbing
reports head on and with
complete transparency,"

Hargis said.
Hargis said Smrt is a vet-
eran NCAA. enforcement
officer. He is currently
president of a consulting
firm specializing in com-
pliance audits. Before that
he was on the NCAA en-
forcement staff for almost
18 years.
Tucker Link, chairman
of the OSU/A&M Board
of Regents, said the board
endorsed Smrt's selec-
tion to determine, "based
on credible sources and
confirmed facts," wheth-
er there is any truth to
the claims made in the
"But let there be no
doubt, the OSU Board
of Regents does not and
will not condone illegal,
immoral and unethical

conduct or conduct that
violates applicable rules,"
Smrt said Hargis has of-
fered him unfettered ac-..
cess as he conducts his
review. .. ..
"He has asked me topuri. -

The Associated Press

The losing continues, for
Mississippi State, Which
now finds 'itself in an ex-
tended slide.
The Bulldogs have lost
seven of nine games dat-
ing back to last ,ason,
including Saturday's 24-20
loss to Auburn. It's been a
humbling and frustrating
stretch for a program that
has been to three straight
bowl games under fifth-
year coach Dan Mullen.
Now Mullen is trying to
address a myriad of issues
on both sides of the ball.
The offense has been
inconsistent all season
and quarterback Tyler
Russell has missed 'the
past two games because
of a concussion sustained
against Oklahoma State.
Injuries in the secondary
have forced the Bulldogs
to use several young play-
ers, and that inexperi-

ence has led to occasional
One of those came when
Auburn's Nick Marshall
threw an 11-yard game-
winning touchdown pass
with 10 seconds left on
But Mullen says there is
still plenty of hope. Mis-
sissippi State (1-2) hosts
Troy (2-1) on Saturday in a
non-conference game.
It's never as good and it's
never as bad as it seems,"
Mullen said. "If we made
one play in that (Auburn)
game, it looks like we
have all the answers. We're
jumping up and down,
patting ourselves on the
But the Bulldogs didn't
make that play, which has
been a recurring theme
during the losing skid.
Mississippi State is almost
always competitive, but
isn't winning the. crucial
plays at crucial moments.
Mullen knows only one

way to get.that fixed.
"We've got to get back to
work," Mullen said. "Hope-
fully we come out with a
chip on our shoulder. To
be successful, you have
to respond td that type of
loss with that desperate
desire to get back on the
field and work harder."
One major issue. 'Mis-
sissippi State's offense
has scored just 23 com-
bined points in two games
against FBS opponents. It's
easy to point to Russell's
absence as the cause, but
backup Dak Prescott has
often played well in relief.
If Russell returns, Mullen
will have to make some in-
teresting decisions.
Russell set a school re-
cord with 2,897 passing
yards and 24 touchdowns
last season, but Prescott
gives the Bulldogs a bet-
ter running option. Mul-
len didn't commit to ei-
ther quarterback during
Monday's weekly press

Offenrisfve coordina-
tor" Les Koenning. said
Prescott's poise against
Auburn was impressive.
"I thought he made.
some excellent decisions,"
Koenning said. "The kid:
rushed for 133 yards and
threw for'213. He might
have had one of two things
that went wrong with him,
but as a whole, in an envi-
ronment like that, he was
S,uhider control and knew
what was coming up. I was
pleased with his perfor-
mance. It just comes down
to a couple of plays."
Mullen said Mississippi
State's offense might be
relying a bit too much on
Prescott. Senior LaDarius
Perkins, who rushed for
1,024 yards last season,
has just 86 rushing yards
so far this season in two
"We want to make sure
our playmakers'are touch-
ing the ball," Mullen said.

Annie's Mailbox

Dear Annie: My son recently married a
youngwoman from an affluent family.
When he Was first engaged, we began to
see less of him. We invited him and his
fiancee to dinners, vacations, etc., but
were usually turned down. They do,, how-
ever, spend a great deal of time with her
family, so we have just backed off.
My husband and I contributed almost
half of the money for the wedding. We of-
fered to help. withwhatever we could, but
were told that our help was not needed.
Her family did all of the planning. She
and her mother conjured up lies to throw
us off from planning our guest list, what
we should wear to the wedding, etc.
We hosted a beautiful rehearsal dinner,
with no "thank you" or even a smile from
the bride. On the day of the wedding,
our daughter-in-law was embarrassingly
rude to my husband and me. It wasn't
until the, next day, when she refused to
attend a family function before going
on their honeymoon, that I found out
she was angry with me because of what
I wore. Annie, I wore the dress my son

Wouldn't it be nice at the bridge table to ask
someone who has already played the deal where the
missing cards are located? Saidly, the game doesn't
work that way. You must make your own decisions on
which roads to .take.
In this deal, South is in six hearts. After West leads
the diamond king, what should, declarer do?
North employed the Jacoby Forcing Raise. South's
three-diamond rebid showed a singleton (or void) in
that suit. The next three calls were control-bids (cue-
bids), after which South bid what he thought he could
Declarer has a potential loser in each black suit. He
starts with'I 1 top tricks: two spades, six hearts, one
diamond, one club and a diamond ruff in the South,
hand. So declarer needs' either a third spade winner
or a second club trick. However, which of those roads
should he take?
To get a third spade trick requires a 3-3 break, which
the mathematicians will tell you happens about one-
third of the time. To obtain a second club winner re-
quires finding East with at least one club honor. Now
the probability rises to approximately three-quarters.
The right road is clear. South should win with
dummy's diamond ace, draw trumps staying on the
board and run the club 10: It loses toWest's queen,
but when declarer returns to the dummy with a spAde
and takes a second club finesse, that works and he
.can claim.

.told me to wear, but he will not admit
that to his wife. ,
We have not heard fromleither of them
since that day. I am so incredibly hurt.
I treated this girl like part of the family.
I can't believe she would ruin a rela-
tionship over something so trivial. Any

Dear Mom: The dress is just an excuse..
to limit contact. It.sounds as if your new
daughter-in-law doesn't want a relation-
ship with her husband's family, and he
permits it either because he agrees or,
more likely, because he doesn'twant to
upset the applecart.
You need to "make nice," even though
it will be difficult. Call or email your son
and his wife, apologize for unintention-
ally selecting the wrong dress, mention
something nice about the weddinrig and
about the bride, andsign off by saying
you hope to see them soon. We hope
your son values his family enough to put
his spine back into place.

Compost Tea
Why Compost Tea?Compost tea makes the
nutrients in the soil more readily available to
the plants therefore increasing nutrient uptake
and providing protection for your plants from
pest and disease. My compost tea has a broad
array of minerals that soils today usually lack.
You will notice the benefits of this product im-
mediately. My compost tea will benefit any
grower in every type of growing condition
whether it be for your lawn, flower garden,
vegetable garden or a much larger scale like
a farm contact me for your compost tea.

Miami tries to build on.

second 2-0 start since '02

The Associated Press

DAVIE Mike Wallace
was still scooting through
the secondary toward
his first Miami Dolphins
touchdown when Ryan
Tannehill raised his arms
to signal a score.
Wallace did indeed reach
the end zone, but the Dol-
phins might want to be
more careful about prema-
ture celebrations.
Yes, they're 2-0 for just
the second time since
2002. They're one of seven
unbeaten teams in the
NFL, and only the Dol-
phins have two road wins.
"I'll tell you one thing -
we've got a hell of a team
in the making," coach Joe
Philbin told his players in
the locker room following
Sunday's 24-20 .victory at
quarter, the Dolphins de-
feated a 2012 playoff team
that beat them a year ago..
For a franchise trying to
end a streak of four con-
secutive losing seasons,
such a victory might be a
Or it could be a mirage.
This is a franchise unac-
customed 'to early-season
success, with a 7-18 record
in September this sea-
son included over the
past eight years. The last
time the Dolphins started
2-0, in 2010, they stumbled
to a 7-9 finish.
Now the challenge is to
build on a fast start that
has them tied with' peren-
nial AFC East favorite New
England atop the division.
"It's onlytwo games," cor-
nerback Brent Grimes said
Monday. "But we played
well and got two road wins
to start the season, which is
a big deal, and we showed
a lot of promise of things
we can do if we keep our
heads on straight."
The pace will be tough
to sustain, with games the
next three weeks against
Atlanta, New Orleans and
Baltimore, all expected to
be playoff contenders.
S"Anytime you start 2-0 it's
a confidence builder," line-
backer PhilipWheeler said,
"and we're going to feel like
we can beat anybody."
While the faststart buoys
the team's mood, it also
helps to validate much-
maligned general manager
-Jeff Ireland's many offsea-
son moves. Among the
newcomers 'to play piv-
otal roles in the latest win
were receivers Wallace and
Brandon Gibson, Grimes,
Wheeler and rookie kicker
Caleb Sturgis.

Miami's Brent Grimes (21) celebrates with Jimmy Wilson (27) after Grimes intercepted a pass
in the end zone Sunday in Indianapolis.

Wallace, miffed after he
caught only one pass in
the first game, matched
his career high with nine
receptions for 115 yards.
Gibson made only one
catch, but it was critical -
a third-down reception to
keep alive a fourth-quarter
drive that helped Miami
chew up the clock.
Grimes squelched ascor-
, ing threat when he outma-
neuvered Reggie Wayne for
his first interception since
tearing his Achilles tendon
'a year ago. Sturgis kicked
a 54-yard field goal that
tied the score on the final
play of the first half, and
Wheeler's fourth-down
sack sealed the win.
TwoI other new starters,
Charles Clay and Lamar
Miller, made' significant
contributions. Clay, a
third-year pro promoted
to the first team only after'.
Dustin Keller suffered a
season-ending knee injury,
had a breakout, game with
109 receiving /yards, the

second-highest total ever
for a Miami tight end. His
67-yard catch set up one
touchdown, and he scored
the winning TD on his first
NFL carry.
Miller showed why Phil-
bin 'and Ireland decided
Reggie Bush .was expend-
able by'rushing for 69 yards
in 14 carries, including a
10-yard touchdown.
Tannehill drew even .in
his rivalry with Andrew
Luck, throwing for 319
yards without an intercep-
tion to win the rematch
between quarterbacks
from the 2012 draft. Luck
rallied the Colts to victory
when they met last season
in one of five games Miami
lost by a touchdown or less.
a year ago.
Tannehill's passer rating
of 94.2 represents a vast
improvement on his 76.1
rating as a rookie.
"Having gone through an
NFL season and an offsea-
son as the starter, he has
grown into the position

and has tremendous con-
fidence," offensive coordi-
nator Mike Sherman said.
"He just shows me great
composure when he's on
the field,"
In the next three weeks
Tannehill will be matched
against Matt Ryan, Drew
Brees and Joe Flacco. Those
games will provide bounti-
ful evidence regarding how
much he and the Dolphins
have improved.
While Philbin be-
lieves they're better, he
anticipates they'll con-
tinue to get better, and a
2-0 record won't inspire
"You have to stay true
'to the film," he said. "The
film tells us from Sunday's
game we did a lot of good
things. But the film also
says there are major areas
,of improvement that need
to be addressed quickly. I
think our guys are level-
headed and know film is
the biggest barometer of
success." .


Tampa Bay Buccaneers coach Greg Schiano talks to free
safety Dashon Goldson on Sept. 8 in East Rutherford, N.J.

Tampa's Goldson

suspended 1 game
The Associated Press

hitting Tampa Bay safety
Dashon Goldson has been
suspended for one game
for flagrant 'and repeat
violations of NFL safety
rules prohibiting hits to
the head and neck area of
defenseless players.
Goldsori was penalized
for unnecessary rough-
ness in the second quarter
of Sunday's game against
New Orleans for making
direct, helmet-to-helmet
contact with a defenseless
receiver, Darren Sproles.
The suspension was
imposed Monday by NFL
vice president of football
operations Merton Hanks.
Goldson can't practice this
week nor play in the Buc-
caneers' game on Sunday
against New England.
He can return to football
activities with the team
next Monday.
The violation was Gold-
son's fifth for unnecessary
roughness since,2011 and
his second in the first two
weeks of the 2013,season.
Goldson was fined
$30,000 last week for
striking a defenseless
player, Jeff Cumberland,
in the headband neck area
against the NewYork Jets.
"You had' an unob-
structed path to 'your op-
ponent," Hanks wrote in a
letter to Goldson inform-
ing hlfm of the suspension
for the hit on Sproles.
"It is clear that ypu low-
ered your head and un-

necessarily rammed the
left side of your helmet
into the left side 'of your
opponent's head.
"You delivered a force-
ful blow with your helmet
and made no attempt
whatsoever to wrap up
your opponent or make
a conventional tackle on
the play. This illegal con-
tact clearly could have
been avoided."
Goldson was not avail-
able for comment at the"
Bucs' training facility.
Under the collective
bargaining agreement,
Goldson has three days
to appeal and request an
expedited hearing and
Appeals are heard and
decided, by either Matt
Birk or Ted Cottrell, the
Officers jointly appointed
by the NFL and NFL Play-
ers Association to oversee
.appeals of on-field player
Goldson was an AUlP-o
last season with San Fran-
cisco, helping the 49ers
'reach the Super Bowl. He
joined Tampa Bay as afree
agent, signing a five-year,
$41.25 million contract.
The suspension will cost
him $264,705 in salary.
The Bucs have com-
mitted a league-high 23
penalties for 220 yards in
two games. They've been
flagged for six personal
fouls five for helmet-
to-helmet contact and the
other for a late hit on Jets
quarterback Geno Smith.
