'Hiccup girl' trial underway

The Associated Press

woman who gained fame
because of her uncon-
trolled hiccupping as a
teenager set up a robbery
that went bad and ended
in -Inurder, Florida pros-
ecutors said Wednesday.
Jennifer Mee, 22, is on
trial for first-degree mur-
der. Opening statements
were presented Wednes-
day in Pinellas County
Court, with the prosecu-
tion saying that Mee lured
the victim to an aban-
doned home under the
pretense of buying mari-
'juana in October of 2010.
Once there, two of Mee's
friends robbed him at
gunpoint but the victim
struggled and was. shot
four times.
"'She set everything up,"
said Assistant State Attor-
ney Chris LaBruzzo, point-
ing at a sad-faced Mee.
As a 15-year-old; Mee
developed a case of the
hiccups that wouldn't go
away. Videos of her hic-
cupping gained her na-
tional attention, s did
her attempts to quell the
problem. She tried home
remedies and consulted
medical specialists, a hyp-
notist and an acupunctur-
ist, until the hiccups final-
ly stopped on their own.
She appeared on several
TV shows and while on

fame during his opening,
"Ms. Mee is known as the

the 12-member jury. "Ms.
Mee was, at the age of 15,
subject to extraordinary
amount of local and na-
tional publicity because of
a medical condition."

year-old Wal-Mart worker.
Prosecutors say Mee lured
Griffin to a St. Petersburg

but instead, two of Mee's

gled with the suspects and
was shot several times;
Detectives said Mee ac-

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.
Lamont Newton, the oth-
er co-defendant who was
also Mee's boyfriend at the
timeof the'crime, hasriot
yet gone to trial. 1,
Trevena said Wednesday
that Meei did not orches-
trate the robbery and in-
stead said the evidence
will show that the shoot-
ing was because Raiford
thought his girlfriend was
getting too friendly with
Griffin. Raiford, Newton
and Raiford's girlfriend
who was never charged
conspired to blame the
crime on Mee because
she is younger and they
believed her more sympa-

Submerged cars found in Okla. may solve cold cases

\ The Associated Press

SAYRE, Okla. When
three teenagers from this
small Oklahoma town dis-
appeared on their way to a
high school football game
in 1970, rumors swirled as
to what happened to the
Some thought the three
had stumbled across a
drug deal at a rural airstrip
and been killed. Others
said they might have run
away to California.
"There have been theo-
ries from everybody," said
Dayva Spitzer, -publisher
of The Sayre Record news-
paper and a longtime resi-
dent. "Everyone suspected
foul play.... But every lead
justwent nowhere."
Now authorities believe
they have a key piece to
the puzzle:'A 1969 Camaro,
just like the one the teens
were driving, was pulled
from a lake with the skele-
tal remains of three people
.inside. .
And that wasn't the only
discovery. A second car
containing remains, an
early 1950s Chevrolet, was
also recovered from Foss

Law enforcement officials' from multiple agencies examine the two cars pulled from Foss
Lake, in Foss, Okla., Wednesday, Sept. 18. The Oklahoma State Medical Examiner's Office says
authorities have recovered skeletal remains of multiple bodies in the Oklahoma lake where the
cars were recovered. .

iff Bruce Peoples believes
it may solve another case
in which two men and a
woman disappeared a year
before the teens vanished.
"These vehicles match
those missing-persons re-

ports ,real close," Peoples
said Wednesday as inves-
tigators combed through
what remained of the rusty,
mud-covered vehicles.
The missing teens were
identified as Leah John-
son, Michael Rios and

Jimmy Williams.
, Both vehicles were dis-
covered Tuesday in about
12 feet of water by divers
conducting a training ex-.
ercise at the lake about/30
miles east of town.
The vehicles were only

about 50 feet from the end
of a boat ramp near a mari-
na, but Peoples said it was
no surprise that the murky
waters held a secret.
"This. lake isi't crystal
clear. It's a typical western
Oklahoma lake with a lot
of silt in it. The visibility
is only 6 to 12 inches on a
good day," Peoples 'said.
"We'll consider it a mystery
'until we prove otherwise."
The sheriff said it was
entirely possible that peo-
ple simply drove into Foss
Lake and drowned.
"We know that to hap-
pen, even if you know your
way around. It can happen
that quick," he added.
While Peoples said he
was confident, the Camaro
held the remains of the
three teens, the origins of

Apple's new iPhones and

mobile devices are packed
with new features, al-

and 'where you took the
photos. Several moments
will be grouped into'a col-
lection, such as a vacation
to Europe. Collections will
then be grouped by year.
It's all automated, so you
can't reorganize shots if
you would rather break
a collection into two. But
it's better than having
hundreds of unorganized

Tip Three: Ask Siri
Frustrated with Sinri's in-

trying to say? Instead of re-
peating yourself over and

manually You shouldn't

easier than having to type
in the entire phrase.
Just for fun. you can give
Siri a sex change by go-
ing to the settings, choos-
ing "General," then "Siri,"
then "Voice Gender." You
can now use Sir to change
phone settings and return
recent calls. And Siri will
speak out turn-by-turn
directions when walldking.
Before, the vocal rinstruc-;
tions were limited to driv-
ing directions in Maps.
Tip Four: Freebies

music service, iTtmes Ra-
dio, is easy to find. Clickon
the Music icon at the bot-
tom of each home screen,,
then choose "Radio" at the
bottom. Create music sta-

With the new fingerprint
ID system on the iPhone.
5S, there's no longer a rea-
son to avoid protecting
your phone with a pass-
code. I know passcodes
can be very disruptive.
I've often lost my train of
thought before I could get
to an app to jot something
down. But your fingerprint
now bypasses the need to
type in a four-digit code in
many situations.
It's easy to set up. The
iPhone -will. walk you
through scanning one fin-
ger when you set up the
phone'. You can scan four
more fingers yours or
someone else's by go-
ing to the settings. Go -to
"General," then "Passcode
& Fingerprint."
I'm still confronted with
passcode screens, es-
pecially when. I need to
authenticate an app pur-
chase. It took me a few
days to realize, that even
though you're asked for a
passcode, the fingerprint
usually works unless the
phone speciA-ally tells
you otherwise.
One more thing: The I
screen needs to be on for
the fingerprint sensor to
work. To save a step, just ,
press on the home but-
ton firmly and let the but-
ton pop back up. But keep
your finger lightly touch-
ing the button's surface.
The hard press will acti-
vate the screen, and the
light touch will unlock the

French Senate says non' to mn-Miss pageants

The Associated Press

PARIS Child beauty
pageants may soon be
banned in France, af-
ter a surprise vote in the
French Senate that rattled
the pageant industry and
raised questions about
how the French relate to
girls' sexuality.
Such contests, and the
made-up, dolled-up beau-
ty queens they produce,
have the power to both
fascinate and repulse, and-
have drawn criticism in
.several countries. France,
with its controlling tradi-
tions, appears to be out
front in pushing an out-
right ban.

Tigers make district debut against Gators

The Graceville Tigers will make their
first foray into district competition Friday
night when they play host to the Wewahi-
tchkaGators at 7 p.m.
The game will be a virtual must-win for
the Gators. who are 0-1 in District 2 play
after falling to the Cottondale Hornets 22-
14 in overtime on Sept. 6. ..
For the Tigers, the contest represents an
opportunity to get the league schedule
started off on the right foot and also to
wash out the taste of last week's 35-0 home
loss to Blountstown.
Graceville has lost two of its first, three
games to start the season under first-year
coach TyWise, but the Tigers can take the
first step towards defending their 2012 dis-
trict title with a win Friday, which would
certainly make the losses to Blountstown
and Bozeman feel much less significant. ,,
"That's it. That's the message, that it's
district play and this is our first opportu-

nity to better our chances of playing in the
postseason," he said. "Ultimately that's a

Texas A&M defense

Texas A&M's defense allowed six
long touchdown drives to top-

the lessons his young players
learned will last along time.-'
"There was a lot of great teach-
ing," Snyder said after the Aggies
reviewed film of Saturday's 49-42
loss. "The thing is, our kids care.
There were a lot of hurt kids in
the locker room. They played
their tails off."'
S'Still,' the Aggies rank ,115th
out of 123': Bowl Subdivision
programs in rushing defense,,
allowing 260 yards per game,.
They rate 112th in total defense

"We've gone against a senior
quarterback from Rice, then an

State) and then against the No. 1
team in the country with a cou-
ple of really good tackles, so it's
come down to how the. schedule

has laid out for us," Snyder said.
"But do I need to see improve-,
ment as we go forward? Yes."
A year ago Snyder inherited
precious little talent from Mike
Sherman's coaching staff, and
the Aggies have a dozen under-
classmen in their latest depth
chart. While starting safety Floyd
Raven (collarbone) missed the
Alabama game, for the first time
this season Snyder had his de-

"For that being our first time

municated well," Hurd said of
the Alabama results. "For the

FCS matchups a win-win for schools

The Associated Press
It's FCS weekend in the ACC,
and some of the matchups
could get ugly.
Bethune-Cookman of the
Mid-Eastern Athletic Confer-
ence plays at No. 8 Florida State
while fellow MEAC member Sa-
vannah State is at No. 16 Miami.
VMI of the Big South travels to
Charlottesville to playVirginia.
The games are unlikely to be
competitive, but will likely be a
win-win for both -schools.
The Atlantic Coast Confer-
ence schools get a victory that
counts toward bowl eligibil-
ity, and if things go as expect-
ed, a virtual live scrimmage
that allows the coaching staff
to get many backups some
"For us, it's just about getting
our team better," said Miami
coach Al Golden, whose team
played Florida in their last
game. "There is a big disparity
from going to an SEC opponent
to this week. ..' But what I'm
trying to teach our team is that
it really doesn't matter what the

other team does."
For the little guys, it's a nice
payday: Bethune-Cookman
will receive $475,000, Savan-
nah State $375,00 and VMI
$325,000, and that can be criti-
cal funding for a school whose
athletic department is strapped
'for funds.
But VMI coach Sparky Woods
said there's more than money

Auburn at LSU and Ten-
nessee at Florida sounds
like a big day in the South,
eastern Conference.
SBeyond the Deep South,
though, those rivalries
don't quite resonate the
way they did notso long
ago, and it is part of the
reason this week's college
football schedule is short
on marquee matchups.
S The Volunteers haven't
beaten the Gators since
2004, and No. 19 Florida
is favored by more than
two touchdowns to ex-
tend its winning streak in
the series to nine games.
"We have to be the team
that overachieves on Sat-
urday," said first-year
Tennessee coach Butch
Jones, whose Vols are
coming off a 59-14 loss to
Florida (1-1) had last
week off, after losing at
Miami the week before. It
allowed the Gators to get
some banged up players
such as quarterback Jeff
Driskel (knee), offensive
linemenJonHalapio (pec-

off of their most ineffective

uti- stown, getting shut out and
y ef- held to just 108 yards of to-
one tal offense after posting 27
great and 55 points in their first

But it's the danger of se-
nior dual-threat quarter-
back Joshl Taylor, who has
accounted for two touch-
downs passing and two
touchdowns rushing so
far, that Melvin said may
be his biggest concern.
"He is a very athletic

said. "He has the arm

The Hornets have their
'own threatening weapons
on offense with a quartet
of running backs Nor-
ris Calhoun, DeMichael
Faulk, Shaundre McAroy,
and JaVontai Hall -who
have all gone over 100
yards for the season, with
the senior Calhoun lead-
ing the pack with 393
yards on nearly 8 yards
per carry.
Even in the loss to West
Gadsden, the' Hornets
moved the ball very effec-
tively most of the night,

the SEC so far this season,
completing nearly 65 per-
cent of his passes for 797
yards, nine touchdowns
and no interceptions. '
) South Carolina's Shaw
picked apart Vanderbilt's
defense, completing 21 of
29 passes for 284 yards and
three touchdowns. He also
rushed for 84 yards.
Even the Mississippi
State-Auburn game' pro-
vided offensive fireworks.
Auburn's Nick Marshall
threw for a career-high 339
yards and two touchdowns
while Mississippi State's
Dak Prescott' countered

133 rushing yards and two

Quarterbacks will make
this season awfully tough
for proud, traditionally
stout SEC defenses.
"What I've noticed the
most is that quarterbacks
now in the SEC are becom-
ing more and more mobile

nessee1 senior defensive

Auburn defensive co-
ordinator Ellis Johnson
agreed, saying the rise of
the mobile quarterback
has defenses scrambling
to make adjustments.
Seven SEC teams aver-
aged at least 30 points per
game last season. So far
this, season, 10 teams are
above that threshold.
"There are so many re-
ally good dual-threat quar-
terbacks coming out right
now in our conference,"
Johnson said. "There have
been some good ones ii
the past, but I don't know
if there's been as many. It's
going to be a challenge."
The SEC's quality and
depth under center has
also attracted the attention
of NFL scouts.
ESPN draft analyst Mel
Kiper Jr. said the SEC
doesn't have a quarterback
who is considered a sure-
fire first round pick, but at
least a half dozen are draw-
ing considerable interest
from teams.

New coaches

hope to revive

sagging rivalries

Gus Malzahn, including
last week's 24-20 victory
against Mississippi State
on a late touchdown pass,
so optimism abounds on
the Plains.
A road trip to DeathVal-
ley, however, has brought
the mood of many teams
"I'm real curious to see
our team responds (on
the road)," Malzalin said.
No. 6 LSU (3-0), like
Florida, opens SEC play
as a big favorite, thanks
in large part to improved
play at a position that's
been a trouble spot for
several seasons, evenwith
all the Tigers' success.
Quarterback Zach
Mettenberger is third in
the nation in passer effi-
ciency rating, with seven
touchdown passes and
no- interceptions. Coach
Les Miles credited new of-
fensive coordinator Cam
Cameron with Metten-.,
berger's improvement.
"I think Zach is seeing
the reasons for the calls
and vhat's -expected and
has really embraced the .
,work ethic that's allowed
him to enjoy -practice,

"It's more leadership;

Despite Wewa's win-

"They've got a lot of re-

Dear Annie: I'mdating a divorced
man with five children, two of whom still
live with their parents in a shared-cus-
tody arrangement. The'divorce was very
bitter, arid she put him into bankruptcy.
She is a spendaholic and not a pleasant
person to be around, always making
-herself the wronged party.
We putup with her at all functions'
that include the kids schoolsports,
birthdays and things like that. But now
she insists on minving herself to ftnc-
tdons with my boyfriend's extended
When is it appropriate to tell her, "Stop
inviting yourself. You are divorced from
this family"? After all, my boyfriend is
never invited to her family functions.
Neither of us wants her at these events,
biut my boyfriend is afraid that if he says
anything to her, it will hurt the kids.
I am so tired of all her involvement.


Sydney J. Harris, a former journalist in Chicago, said,
"Our dilemma is that we hate change and love it at the
same time; what we really want is for things to' remain
the same but get better."
You are often faced with a dilemma at the bridge
table. Perhaps, should you win this trick or lose it?
That's one-reason why we love and hate this game. The
way out of a dilemma, of course, is to analyze logically.
In this deal, South blasts into six spades. After West
leads the',diamond king, what should declarer do?
North's two-no-trump response over West's takeout
.double guaranteed four or more spades and at least
game-invitational valties: 10-plus support points
and eight or fewer losers. South's sensible leap to the
small slam kept the defenders in the dark. Note that a
club lead would have defeated six spades, and a slow,
tortuous auction might have highlighted that.
South is faced with two losers: one heart and one
club. But he can get home by putting the opponent
with the heart ace in a dilemma. Which opponent will
that be?
Based on the bidding, it is more likely to be West
than East.
Declarer must ruff the opening lead in his hand.
Then he draws trumps and leads his heart five. What
hoes West do?
If he wins with his ace, South has 12 tricks via seven
spades, three hearts, one diamond and one club.
Alternatively, if West plays low, declarer wins with
dummy's jack and discards his heart king on the dia-
mond ace. Then he claims, conceding one club and
ruffing his other two clubs on the board.

How can we bond with his family as a
couple if she's always there? I'm having
a hard time with this. I think he needs to
tell her to'knock it off. They are divorced.
That means they are no longer couple.
She has her own boyfriend, by the way,
although she doesn't db'muchwith him.

Dear B.H.: We caution you not to make
demands on yourbqyfriend, because *
it puts you between him and his chil-
dren, which is not a good place to be.'
Instead, discuss th, situation calmly If
he is determined to allowhis ex to attend

Joey Logano, driver of the No.' 22 Penske Racing
Ford, is the only Chase rookie in this season's
expandedd field of contenders..
As (bad) luck would have it, he was the first
driver fighting for the 2013 title to e. it the race at
Chicagoland. Reason out: blown engine..
"We got to keep our heads up and keep the
momentum that we have and not let this take .us
down," he said. "With only 10 races, you really
can't have these issues, but we are strong
enough to come back from it."
In the past five years, only Jimmie
Johnson has roared back from such ,
a horrible Chase start to win the title

Michael Waltrip Racing was '
fined heavily for team sherani-
gans atRichmond. All three of
its drivers lost 50 championship
points, and that points loss pulled Martin
Truex from the Chase playoffs.
SBut as 'ASCAR cleaned up its Richmond mess,
Clint Bowyer refused to admit he spun his Ho. 15
Waltrip Racing Toyota with seven laps to go in
order to assist Truexin claiming a Chase berth.
Bowyer apologized to Ryan Newman, who
wasdirectly affected by the spin, and said he
was sorry for what happened, but apparently
decided to take the Fifth on his complicity in
the scheme to assist his teammate.
Not only is there strong video and audio
evidence, but eyewitness-Dale Earnhardt
Jr. stepped forward to say that Bowyer was
purposely slowing in order to
make the damning spin
harmless to his racing M ,,
"You asked about a
line being crossed and
obviously MWR stepped
over that line," Bowyer said.
"We got penalized and then like
I said, I've given this interview on
national television." :
Bowyer visited ESPN's SportsCenter studio
three days after the Richmond race and looked
extremely uncomfortable, like he was sitting in
a briar patch, during a tough line of question- ,
ing from former driver Ricky Craven. They had
a back-and-forth moment.
Back at Chicagoland Speedway. Bowyer
played dodgeball with the media as his
team prepared for the Chase.
"We've had a great season, and as
far as that's concerned (Richmond), we
know really we know where the line

is," he said
And no, that "line' of which Bowvver speaks
doesn't involve an admission of guilt.

With tihe Richmond hullabaloo, some major
racing news was trampled. SuCh as Ryan I lewrnan

Disappointment: Joey Logano

Don't be surprised: if: Several

Such' outpourings of emotion aren't
an everyday occurrence for Matt.

Any chance of calm this week?
NASCAR is due for several days ol
ho-hum heading into New Hampshire,
and the stars just may be aligned. Last
Week was one of the worst in the past
decade for NASCAR, which found itself
dealing with credibility.issues stemming
from the previous week at Richmond.
But if the sight of Matt Kenseth the
walking, talking definition of calm -
hoisting the trophy at Chlicagoland
didn't signal a return to peace and
quiet, there may be no hope.
Final thoughts on NASCAR's dam-
age control?
TheBoys in Competition should've
seen the-potential for shenanigans long
before they happened at Richmond.. But
they either dropped the ball or put too
much faith in the teams urn, let's go
with "dropped the bali." But after the
fact, NASCAR couldn't win. In the end.
'however, they probably made the best
of a bad 'situation.
'Will it happen again?
Human nature never fails to over-
come our better intentions and stated
values. So yes, it'll happen again, but
it will be better hidden. Much better
