Montford, Villagers to
headline Chipola party
Celebrate the season with the Chipola Appreciation Club's "Endless Summer" dinner and dance, Saturday, Aug. 16, at the Marianna National Guard Armory. Just as the Beach Boys' "Endless Summer" album reminds us of a simpler time with hits like "Surfin' USA" and "Be True to Your School," this event will reunite old Chipola friends and alumni for a relaxing evening to establish an endowed scholarship honoring Florida Senator Bill Montford (Chipola Class of 1967). The Villagers, a popular Chipola band from the 1960's which is also being honored, will provide the perfect musical backdrop for the occasion. The Villagers are celebrating their 50th anniversary with the release of a new album. Original Villagers - Cliff Ellis of
Chipley, Allen Myers of Malone, George Boyer of Port St. Joe, Walter Dover of Quincy and Andy Murray of Chattahoochee will perform their favorite tunes, including their hit song "Laugh It Off." Appreciation Club President Robert Trammell says, "Even though music has changed dramatically during Chipola's 60-plus years, the bonds and friendships built here have remained constant."
Trammell points to the commitment of alumni and supporters as the key to the college's success. "Without strong support from our people, Chipola would not be what it is today. Our athletic programs would be unable to perform at the national level," he added. Chipola College began in 1947 and has enjoyed more than 67 great years,

121st Bevis family reunion to be held on June 21
Descendants of William Langley Bevis (1791-1870) and Jennie Palmer Bevis (1801-82) will gather atThe Daks restaurant in Marianna, FL at 11 a.m. on Saturday to celebrate the 121st Bevis family reunion. The reunion program will feature the noted local historian and author, Dale Cox, who will speak on the topic, "What was Jackson County like when the Bevis family arrived in 1855?" The business meeting will include installing the incoming president of the Bevis Family Association, Mrs.'Gwen GrantWilliams, by the retiring president, Mrs. Mary Bevis Schmidt. Three scholarships will be awarded during the meeting to the following recipients: Andrew Hand Fletcher of Thomaston,
GA, whose grandparents are Richard and Betty Joyce Hand; Caroline Lynn Rogers of Malone, whose parents are Rhett and Donna Rogers, and grandparents, are Bobby and Rowena Rogers, and Blake Southerland of Southport, whose parents are Tim and Stacey Southerland. Each recipient will receive $1,000 from the Ancestral Association of the William Langley Bevis Scholarship Fund. The scholarship recipients are direct descendants of William Langley Bevis and have demonstrated high academic achievement, exceptional leadership in extracurricular activities, and uncompromising moral character. As part of. the applicati6n each student was re-
quired to write an essay on "the contributions my Bevis family has made to civic, historic, and/or educational life." Historic records show that the Bevis family patriarch was born in Virginia in 1791, lived in South Carolina for 24 years (181842), and became a Jackson County resident in 1855. Since establishing homesteads in Northwest Florida in the mid-1800s the number of Bevis descendants has grown to an estimated 7,000 individuals. The original Bevis famfly and its descendants played a central role in the formation and history of the Bascom United Methodist Church in 1880, and later the town of Bascom, which was named after the church.

Club awards scholarships
The Marianna Woman's Club has continued its tradition of awarding Chipola College scholarships to academically qualified Jackson County young people.
This year, the club was pleased to award four $500 scholarships to the college. One was funded through the Debi Davis Memorial Merit Scholarship Fund, two were through personal donations from club members, Jane Powell and Chris Sharkey, and the remaining was given by the club from its general fund. This last scholarship
was made possible due to community support at the holiday decorating show last fall and by the generosity of Michael Smith of Artistic Designs, Unlimited, the presenter of the show, as he waived his fee so that a scholarship could be given from the money the show generated. The scholarship, program is one of many community outreach projects of the Marianna Woman's' Club.
Founded in 1919, the Woman's' Club is the oldest community service organization in the county.

Motorists driving along U.S. 90 last weekend
might have noticed a large American flag
hanging from two utility department bucket trucks in front of Marianna Chapel Fumeral Home. What it was doing there says a great deal about our community and the people who live and work here. Woody Hall, who enjoyed a long career as a lineman with Florida Public Utilities, died last week. His co-workers mowed his lawn after his death in preparation for visitors who would come to pay condolences, and expressed their respect with the impromptu flag display.
Such tender expressions of friendship aren't unusual, particularly in times of loss. However, they usually happen quietly, as those who make such gestures do not do so to bring attention to themselves. Because Woody Hall's friends and co-workers chose to celebrate their fallen friend in a manner that we can all appreciate, Jackson County residents had an opportunity to experience the sort of relationships that make our community special.
It's. enough to make one wish they'd known Woody Hall and his colleagues on the lineman crew at FPU.
The PECO crisis
A long with the iron-fisted control the Florida
Legislature exerts over public education finances
. omes the responsibility to make sure school
districts have sufficient resources to properly maintain the state's 3,600-plus public schools.
Sadly, the Legislature is failing Florida's schools miserably. And refusing to fix the problem is inexplicable, illogical and just plain irresponsible.
For the first time since Gov. Rick Scott took office, lawmakers this year allocated money from the state's Public Education Capital Outlay (PECO) fund to public schools across the state. Local school districts hailed the event, even though it was a paltry $50 million total. Again, there are 3,600 schools across 67 counties.
Meanwhile, the state's charter schools, which enroll fewer than 10 percent of the students Florida's public schools do - 233,000 versus 2.6 million - have received huge allotments of PECO money during each of Scott's first three years in office, including a disproportionate $75 million this year - all for privately owned charter school buildings.
Now, PECO is not the only source of school maintenance and repair dollars. School districts also levy a local millage for capital improvements. But since 200809, the Legislature, again using its near-total authority over local school fiscal issues, has slashed that from 2 mills to 1.5 mills.
There's more. PECO is on life support. Since 1974, it has been funded through taxes on energy and landline phone taxes. Problem is, with more and more people going to cellphones and abandoning their landlines and conservation measures reducing energy consumption, PECO has all but dried up from a high in 2006 of $1.8 billion, money that must be split between schools, colleges and universities.
What can our governor and lawmakers be thinking? They are giving an over-generous and disproportionate share of scarce school maintenance money to privately operated charter schools that Floridians do not own.
Floridians can argue over standardized tests and curriculums, teacher evaluations and class sizes until the cows come home, but our school roofs are still going to leak, paint is going to peel, air conditioners are going to die, kitchen equipment will need replacing ... the, list goes on and on. Florida desperately needs a new means of funding, school maintenance and repairs, and the Legislature deserves an "F" for creating the current crisis.

WHICH SOCCER TEAM
HAS THE 8EST ACTORS.
The best seat in the house
Last week, for the first time in
months, Sue and I went to
the movies. We used to go at least once a week, but now with Netflix and Hulu and Roku and all the movie channels on cable, we could easily watch 10 movies a day if we were so inclined. And better yet, we have big-screen TV sets in several rooms, so Sue can watch things that bore me and I can watch things that bore her at the same time.
Movie theaters should try that. If there's a romantic movie at one theater in the multiplex and a shoot 'em up in another, start them both at the same time so the husband can watch one and the wife can watch the other. Don't start one at
4 and one at 5:30. I can't tell you how many times, after watching different movies in different rooms, that we have said to each other, "It was great - but you wouldn't have liked it."
What can I say? It's a well-known fact that when it comes to movies, men are from "The Bourne Supremacy" and women are from "The Notebook." So for us, and I suspect for many other couples, going to see a film in a theater is becoming a rarer and rarer occurrence. And when there is something we both want to see, it's only there for about a day. The movies we don't want to see, the movies for toddlers and teenagers, linger around for weeks. The movie we want to see plays for what seems

like one afternoon. We go tothe early showings now, because we'll fall asleep before the
7 o'clock show ends. This afternoon, we are the only people in the theater. How do they make any money? No wonder they only keep it around for one'afternoon. Through the paper-thin walls of the multiplex, we can hear the noise of a full-bore action picture in the neighboring theater. Or maybe we're in the middle of a bowling ball-sized hailstorm. The movie is set to start at 4:05. The lights dim and the first preview of Coming Attractions starts. The seats shake, the theater rattles and famous landmark buildings are shown erupting in violent explosions, with thousands of screaming people running away as the smoke and flames shoot toward them. Out of the rubble emerges, one man, blackened with smoke and debris, but nary a scratch. He is the one man who can save the world. He's tough and he's hard and he says what needs to be said and does what needs to be done. In real
life, the star is 5 foot 6, is scared of spiders and snakes and pays his agents, lawyers and staff to say what needs to be said and do what needs to be done. This blockbuster, we're told, will open on Christmas Day. Because what else would you do on Christmas Day - hang around the house vith boring relatives? The next preview is for a horror film with half-dreqssed teenagers screaming at something you can never quite see. "What," I thought, "c6uld make a teenagegirl scream like that?" The answer that came to me was not vampires and werewolves or FreddyKrueger. They probably just told the teen star that she had gained a pound. There were six or sbven more trailers we had to sit through and after each, one of u's would say to the other, "Remind me never to see that." The movie scheduled to start at 4:05 started at 4:30, right after we were reminded to turn off our, cellphones and visit the the large selection of expensive anti-health food in the lobby. The movie was very good, but we'd gotten out of the habit of sitting for long stretches. Every now and then I found myself trying to hit,the.pause buttonsoq ,coul'dgo., raid the fridge. Sue said next time we went to a movie to remind her to bring her knitting. I'm not sure there will be a next time.

Fifty years after Freedom Summer
oday the phrase "Freedom Summer" has a romantic tint,
colored in idealism, shaded in glory: a noble moment of grandeur when blacks and whites from Mississippi and beyond united in a brave effort to fight segregation and register blacks to vote. But a half-century ago, the effort known formally as the Mississippi Summer Project was both audacious and dangerous, Three civil fights workers were ambushed, kidnapped and killed. Another died in a car crash. Scores of Freedom Summer volunteers were beaten. Three dozen churches were bombed or burned. The granite walls of resistance were only barely penetrated. And when the summer ended, the progress that we today regard as inevitable still seemed impossible.
But 50 summers on, we now recognize that this was one of the signature episodes in America's long story of racial strife and racial reconciliation.
It was a movement that was multifaith and multiracial but not really multigenerational. It was a youth campaign with almost no equal, except perhaps the flood of anti-war college students into New Hampshire for Eugene McCarthy's presidential effort four years later
- and there the principle obstacle, was frigid temperatures and the only dangerwas icy stares. This month, the anniversary of the movement's start will bring forth a flood of testimonials but almost no reappraisals - for the effort was so pure in its purpose, so righteous in its goals, sowholesome in its intentions that, even in our contemporary culture of criticism, hardly anyone can condemn this mobilization of idealism. As for the three who were abducted and then murdered, they are rightly remembered as martyrs to a sacred cause, and they are often remembered, surnames only, as if their names were the tolling of a bell: Chaney, Goodman, Schwerner.
The summer project was born out of despair, even desperation. Mis-
sissippiwas an isolated backwater of the Deep South, a world unto its own, determined to remain that way, to retain its ancient outlook, folkways and viewpoints, and to resist even the most tentative movements toward racial integration. Listen to the testimony of Dorie Ann Ladner, born in Hattiesburg, drawn into the civil rights movement by the murder of Emmitt Till, expelled from Jackson State College for her activism and instrumental in Freedom Summer: "This was a very important part of our history because blacks were being killed, segregation was at its highest peak, we could not get public utilities, we could not try on clothes in stores, our education was very poor," 'she said in a conversation this spring. "We were not treated like human beings." This sense of hopelessness led her to support bringing outsiders to the state, surely to bear witness, perhaps to spur change. "We thought that college students from outside would bring along their parents, and their parents would bring along congressmen, and congressmen would bring along the federal government," she said. Not all the outsiders were white. Some were like Charlie Cobb, born in Washington and reared in Springfield, Mass., but with farm roots in Mississippi. He was field secretary for the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee at the time. This is his testimony, rendered on the phone this spring: "Freedom Summer focused for the first time the attention of the nation on Mississippi. The idea was to bring the nation's children - mostly white, mostly middle-class or upper-middle-class
children, many from politically connected families - to Mississippi and, as a result, the iatioin did look at Mississippi. That experience not only changed the students. It also changed the nation."
The mastermind of the effort was Robert Parris Moses, almost always known as Bob, then as now a figure of great probity and perspective. Beaten and bloodied but determined to change both
-Mississippi and the nation,'he was at once combative and comforting, particularly after the three abductees were found buried six weeks after their disappearance. Today, at age 79, he believes the effects of Freedom Summer were profound: "It's pretty clear now that it was absolutely critical, part of an earthquake. The March on Washington, Birmingham, Selma and Montgomery - they were mobilizing efforts around specific targets. The Mississippi theater was the only place where the whole statewas the target."
"All the social, political, cultural and economic factors in Mississippi were for decades controlled only by Mississippi," Moses said. "The rest of the country had nothing to say about it. And that meant institutionalizing black inferiority and white supremacy in the state and across the South- until then." The Mississippi project was
inspired in part by two white men, ' Allard Lowenstein, who later led the "Dump Johnson" movement and served in Congress, and Robert Spike, executive director of the National Council of Churches' Commission on Religion and Race, both credited by Moses for mobilizing student and church forces. But that summer - tumultuous, thrilling, tragic - a bunch of largely white students led by a largely black organization helped change Mississippi, and the country beyond. Freedom Summer was a summertime moment for us all.

"It's really nice, but at the same time an award tells you what you did in the past and I want to never loose focus on what we can do in the future to help people. Locally we suffered some cuts in resources but were able to power through it to put a lot of people into training programs, so I'm proud of that. It was achieved, though, not just by me at all.

Inflation data another
-topic for Fed debate
WASHINGTON-The Federal Reserve received some.further cause for discussion at its policy meeting this week with a report Tuesday of a stur- , prising jump in consumer inflation.
Yet most economists aren'taltering tl4 view, that the Fed's first interest rate increase is at least a year away. Analysts cautioned that that time
-frame could change if
inflation were to accelerate. The consumer price index rose 0.4 percent in May, the government said, and has risen 2.1 percent over the past 12 months
-- roughly at the level of the Fed's target rate for inflation.
It's why the Fed might actually welcome the news of slightly higher' inflation: It will help ease long-standing concerns that inflation might be too low.

Gas-saving tips and myths
From Consumer Reports
As the summer travel season rolls in, prices at the gas pump are usually going in the wrong direction for our wallets, notes Consumer Reports. That's when drivers become more concerned about how to squeeze the most miles. from their fuel dollars and keep their cars running their best.
Here. are. some common questions thaft'onsumer Reports' auto expeia & n get asked about gas mA"4 related topics: n Wh a'sthe best way to cut fuel costs? S down. In tests, Consumer 1 orts found that driving faster ote highway can take a bite ot you a's fuel efficiency. Testers. measured gas mileage while driving at -a steady 55, 65 and 75 miles per hour in a Honda Accord, Toyota RAV4 and three versions of a Ford Fusion, including a hybrid. The drop in fuel economy while going from 55 to 65 ranged from 4 to 8 miles per gallon. Upping the speed from 65 to 75 cut it 5 to 7 mpg more. Overall, speeding up from 55 mph to 75 is like moving from a compact carto alarge SUV.
a What if I need to carry stuff on my car's roof? Carrying things on the roof increases aerodynamic drag, which hurts fuel, economy:
When Consumer Reports, tested a 2013 Honda Accord at. a steady 65 mph, it-got 42 mpg with nothing on the roof. Adding even an empty bike rack dropped the mileage by 5 mpg, to 37. A wind deflector reduced the wind noise but cut gas mileage to 35 mpg. And with two bikes on the rack, gas mileage dropped to 27 mpg, a whopping 15-mpg difference overall.
D Does running the air conditioner hurt fuel economy.compared with opening the windows? It depends. on how hard the air-conditioning system has to work. When Consumer Reports measured the fueleconomy difference in a 2008 Ford Focus, Honda Accord and Subaru Forester, testers found that fuel use with the A/C running went up with higher outside temperatures. At 55 degrees, there were negligible differences. But when testers measured again on days when the temperature was in the low 70s and high 80s, they got fewer miles per gallon with the A/C on. In general, expect 1 to 4 mpg fewer with air conditioning. b How far can I go when my lowfuel warning light'comes on? There: is ro set rule, but most cars have a reserve of between I and'2 gallons of gas when the light goes on, or enough to travel about 40 miles or so at a moderate, speed. To maxi-
mize those last couple of gallons, Consumer Reports suggests slowing down and maintaining a steady pace.
)) Can I improve gas mileage by installing a special air filter? With modern cars, changing yourair filter probably won't improve your fuel economy. When Consumer Reports tested a car to see whether a dirty air filter hurt its gasmileage because of reduced air intake, it found that the car's acceleration was hurt but not its fuel economy. The engine's computer automatically compensated for the restricted airflow by reducing fuel use to maintain the right air-tofuel ratio. Testers expect similar results from any air-filter change., )) Can inning on empty hurt my Engine? Some people think that can draw in debris from the bottom of the fuel tank, but it's not really a big corcem. That's.because the fuel pump always pulls in gas from the bottom of the tank, even when it's full. So iffthere is a debris problem, you'll probably know about it long before the fuel level gets low. These days, there's usually a fuel filter in the gas tank as well as one nearer the engine, so debris is unlikely to get through to your engine.
If your tank contains junk, though, you might haveto change the filters more frequently.'

State sells off closed prisons and state land
The Associated Press
TALLAHASSEE - Florida state officials agreed on Tuesday to sell off four closed prisons as part of a series of land deals that will bring in more than $27 million to the state's environmental land-buying program.
Gov. Rick Scott and the three members of the state Cabinet unanimously approved the sale of more than 1,500 acres spread throughout central and South Florida. The four prisons were shuttered during a round of prison consolidations and budget cuts that happened shortly after Scott first came into office. "It's the right thing to do if there are surplus lands to sell it and put it back in the hands of the private sector so they will do something productive with it," said Scott after the vote. The money from the land sales will flow into the state fund that it used to purchase environmentally sensitive lands. Environmentalists praised the deal because during the recession the state curtailed
greatly the amount of money it spent on acquiring conservation lands. Scott and Cabinet members at the same meeting agreed to spend $450,000 to purchase 155 acres in Lake County that is adjacent to the Lower Wekiva River Preserve Park. The state has been acquiring land in central Florida in order to create a greenway linking the Ocala National Forest to parks near the Wekiva River.
The four shuttered prisons are located in central and south Florida: Broward, Hendry, Hlllsborough and Palm Beach counties. The Hendry County parcel is the largest and includes more than 1,100 acres.
The state also sold off other land in Volusia, Miami-Dade and Monroe counties. The Volusia parcel will be used to help start a "motorsports" program at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University, while the city of Miami plans to use the small piece of land in order to make road improvements to help with a new development just south of the Miami River.

Tornadoes flatten rural town
The Associated Press
PILGER, Neb. - As two giant tornadoes bore down on this tiny farming town in northeast Nebraska, Trey Wisniewski heard the storm sirens, glanced out at the blackening sky and rushed with his wife into their basement. "My wife was holding our animals, and I was holding on to my wife. We could feel the suction try to pull us out of there," he said Tuesday.
Suddenly, their house was gone, leaving them to dodge debris that rained down upon them. And then, the storm that hit so suddenly Monday afternoon was gone, allowing them to emerge and see what was left of the 350person farming town of Pilger.
They found that much of the community was gone and two people had died. The disaster, delivered by twin twisters rare in how forcefully they travelled side by side for an extended period, left some townsfolk doubting whether the town could rebuild, even as they marveled that the death toll hadn't been worse. "This is by far the worst thing I've ever seen as governor," said Gov. Dave Heineman, who flew over Pilger in a helicopter
Ruth Labenz is assisted to safety by a Stanton County Sheriff's officer after her home was destroyed Monday in the town of Pilger, Neb.
Tuesday morning and then walked through the town, trailed by reporters. One of those killed was a 5-year-old girl, Calista Dixon, said Stanton County Sheriff Mike Unger. Cody Murphree, the girl's brother, said in a statement that his mother, 42-year-old Kandi Murphree, was in a medically induced coma in Omaha after the tornado destroyed their home. The other fatality was a motorist killed during the storm, David A. Herout, 74, of Clarkson, Nebraska. He died in Cuming County, a few miles east
At least 19 people were taken to hospitals. Up to 75 percent of the buildings in Pilger were heavily damaged or destroyed. The tornado destroyed much of the small downtown, leaving piles of bricks that had been storefronts in the street. Several grain bins on the south end of Main Street were swept away, and others remained crumpled on the ground. Between 45 and 50 homes in Pilger were demolished, about a dozen others were damaged beyond repair in
Dixon County. Homes south and west of downtown fared even worse, with most reduced to piles of debris or gone entirely.
"I am amazed that ... out of all of this destruction only two people were killed," Wisniewski said. While the governor said he was confident the community would rebuild, cafe owner Linda Oertwich wasn't so sure.
Florida inmates charged with shooting scheme
The Associated Press
LAKE CITY-Three Florida prison inmates and four others are charged with smuggling a gun into a prison so two of them could shoot themselves and then sue the Corrections Department for reduced sentences. The Florida Department of Law Enforcempnt reported Tuesday that Columbia Correctional Institution inmates Kirk Cartwright and Deshandre Billups were shot and wounded on March 22. The pair claimed they were praying in their cell when they were shot by an unknown person, the department said in a news release.
Investigators later found they managed
with the help of relatives, friends and a third inmate to get a .25-caliber handgun into the prison through the mail, with plans to shoot themselves and file lawsuits. The law enforcement department said the two regularly smuggled cellphones and drugs into the prison, which is located in Lake City.
Department spokeswoman.GretITPldssinger said the investigation is ongoing. The nature of the two inmates' injuries and details about the shootings were not released. "We are anticipating additional arrests and charges so we can't provide more information now," she said in an email. Cartwright and Billups are facing five
new felony charges, including possession of a firearm in a correctional facility and 10 counts of possession of contraband for the cellphones. Cartwright is already serving a life sentence for murder and Billups 20 years for armed robbery and armed burglary. The third inmate, Tony Underwood, is charged with introducing and possessing contraband into a prison. He's already doing a six-year sentence for burglary and grand theft.
The others charged include Billups' mother, Cartwright's girlfriend and sister, and Underwood's girlfriend. The law enforcement department said they assisted in getting the cellphones and gun into the prison.
Former state senator qualifies in gov. race TALLAHASSEE - Former Gov. Charlie Crist isn't going to get a clear path to incumbent Gov. Rick Scott.
Former State Sen. Nan Rich officially qualified for the governor's race 'Tuesday. That means that Rich and Crist will square off against each other in the Aug. 26 Democratic primary.
Most of the focus in the race so far has been between Crist, who once was a Reptiblican, and Scott.
Rich, however, has
refused to stand aside for Crist and has questioned his positions on various issues, such as abortion and gay marriage.
Two relatively unknown Republicans have also qualified for the governor's race, meaning that Scott will appear on the primary ballot as well.
Libertarian Party can-, didates for both governor and attorney general have also qualified for the ballot this week.
Man gets 35 years
for fatal robbery
CLEARWATER -A Tampa Bay area man has been sentenced to 35 years in prison for fatally shooting a man and wounding the man's wife.
APinellas County judge sentenced 21-year-old Makeral Shay Crocker on Tuesday after he pleaded guilty to second-degree murder, aggravated battery and being a felon in possession of a firearm. Authorities say 58-yearspld David J. Paonessa and 6-year-old Jane Bryant were shot in their Lealman area home in November 2012. Authorities say
Crocker and an underage male went to their home to buy pill, but then Crocker decided to rob Paonessa. Crocker shot the couple during a struggle, and Paonessa died.
The Tampa Tribune reports that the underage male was previously sentenced to 10 years in prison after pleading to third-degree murder.
Scott signs human
TALLAHASSEE - Penalties for human trafficking are going to be increased under bills signed by Gov. Rick Scott.
Scott on Tuesday signed two measures aimed at fighting the illegal industry, which often includes the sex trafficking of children.
One of the new laws (HB 989) removes time limitations to prosecute human trafficking crimes. It also increases criminal penalties and would prohibit minors from working in adult theatres.
The other measure signed by the governor (HB 7141) changes guidelines used by agencies in running safe houses and foster homes for exploited children.
The National Human Trafficking Resource Center has ranked Florida third in the numSber of calls received by its hotline.
Attorney General Pam Bondi said her office is currently handling several ongoing investigations into human trafficking operations in the state.

JACKSONVILLE - Signs

The Duval County School Board agreed in January to change the name of the school, ending a decades-long debate. The school was named in 1959 after a former Confederate general and the co-founder of the Ku Klux Klan. It is becoming Westside High to reflect the school's neighborhood. The Florida TimesUnion reports businesses and community members have either given dona-, tions or in-kind donations, but that's not enough to offset the costs to the school board.

In addition, companies including Holmes Stamp & Sign, Farm Out Design Services and Matt Carlucci State Farm are donating materials and labor. Bryan Croft, president and chief executive officer of Homes Stamp & Sign, told the Times-Union his company is donating about 10 signs, with a value of about $2,000.

Arizona break-in highlights gun-possessing clergy
The Associated Press
PHOENIX - A Roman Cathdlic priest responding to a break-in at his downtown Phoenix church grabbed a handgun that police say ended up in the burglar's hands - and was then used to kill a fellow priest who tried to help. The Diocese of Phoenix has no policy on priests carrying guns, but the deadly burglary raised questions about the wisdom of clergy possessing weapons, no matter how dangerous their mission. The attack occurred after the Rev. Joseph Terra opened the kitchen door of the Mother of Mercy Mission rectory on the evening of June 11 to investigate noises in a courtyard. The intruder he found beat him with a metal rod, but the priest managed to retrieve a .357-caliber gun from his bedroom. He was unable to fire the weapon before the attacker grabbed it and used it to fatally shoot Terra's colleague, 28-year-old Kenneth Walker, according to court records. Terra is expected to make a full recovery after being beaten so badly that authorities initially doubted he would survive the first night.,
A 54-year-old homeless ex-convict named Gary Michael Moran has been arrested on suspicion of first-degree murder, burglary and armed robbery, among other charges. Many American Catholic leaders have argued that church teaching compels them to advocate for greater limits on guns, but self-defense is also part of Catholic theology, and Catholics have different views of the issue. Walker's relatives have mixed feelings about Terra having kept a gun in the rectory.
"On one hand, we feel that they should have a way to protect themselves. But on the other hand, we think about the fact that our brother was killed with it," Sasha Keyes, Walker's stepsister, said Tutiesday in an interview. , Terra "was possibly thinking of both him and Father Kenny, in protecting them," Keyes said. "But given his condition, he probably wasn't thinking
In this Thursday photo, Phoenix Chief of Police Daniel Garcia (right) pauses while speaking at a news conference as Phoenix Mayor Greg Stanton (left) listens at Phoenix Police Headquarters, in Phoenix, speaking about an attack that left a priest shot and killed and another injured at the Roman Catholic church the Mother of Mercy Mission.

very clearly when he went for the gun."
The Rev. Richard Malloy, who worked with fellow Jesuits in the 1990s in Camden, New Jersey, when crack cocaine was ravaging the city, said he never carried a gun as a city dweller.
One time, when Malloy was riding in a van and preaching through speakers attached to the roof, someone shot down the speakers. No one was hurt. At the time, priests felt protected by their clergy collars, which a friend dubbed "the angel's bulletproof vest."
The Mother of Mercy Mission, where last week's attack happened, is in a rough neighborhood near the state Capitol. Protective bars cover nearly every.window, as well as the windows of most of nearby homes. At the same time, residents say the police presence is strong, in part because of the government offices.
But concern about security at churches has grown in the last decade or so in the wake of several highprofile shootings, including a 2007 fatal shooting at New Life Church in Colorado Springs, Colorado.
Many of the attacks were related to domestic violence, personal conflicts or robbery. In response, some congregations put armed guards at the doors during worship services.
Still, in states that allow concealed weapons, many congregations bar firearms. Catholic priests face a special challenge when it comes to security. The church's shortage of clergy means many live alone, including some in downtown areas deserted at night. S"A pastor is no different than anyone else," said Chuck Chadwick, president of the National Organization for Church Security and Safety Management. "If I'm in a bad place, and my mission is there, I'd probably carry a gun. You can't have a universal policy for all pastors."
At tiny Living Water Church, just east of, St. Louis in the Illinois village of Cahokia, pastor Cory Respondek insists arming himself is a way to stop any threat to his 20-per,son congregation. . What happened in Phoenix, he worries, reflects a cultural shift among criminals: Churches were once considered largely off-limits as
targets, and many houses of worship left their doors unlocked. Now, he said, it looks like they're fair game.I He generally .doesn't carry the gun during Sunday services, although he believes some congregants are discreetly armed. "Nobody wants to take a life, and no one wants to have to hurt someone. But if you're attacked and your church people are in danger of being hurt or killed, you have to react," he added.
Johnny Shaw, pastor at St. John Baptist Church in Stanton, Tennessee, a rural town of about 430 people northeast of Memphis, said he keeps a gun in his pickup truck for protection when he drives to Nashville for his work as a state representative. But he doesn't bring it into the church or when he's working with the public, because he believes it would undermine the message of peace and restraint.
"Irespectthe church. It's a place of hallowed ground," he said. "It's where we personally go to meet God ... I don't think I need a gun in hallowed ground." An intruder beat Mary
Shepard and another woman in a southern Illinois church where Shepard worked as a treasurer, leaving both for dead. She believes she could hIrave thwarted that attack if she hadn't been barred from carrying a. gun in public. She waged a long legal fight that helped bring about an end to Illinois' last-in-the-nation ban on concealed carry. Shepard, 74, said the Phoenix priest is "still a man and a person who has a right to self-protection." Her church hasn't taken a position on guns in the building, but she said she would goto another church if guns were barred. "I don't see anything wrong with having a gun in church," she said.

3 inmates set to die; previous execution botched
The Associated Press
ST. LOUIS - Convicted killers in three states were facing executions within a 24-hour period starting Tuesday night, potentially the first lethal injections in the nation since a botched execution in Oklahoma seven weeks ago. All the states planning executions - Florida, Georgia and Missouri - refuse to say where they get their drugs or if they are tested., Lawyers for two of the condemned inmates have challenged the secretive processusedbysomestates to obtain lethal injection drugs from unidentified, loosely regulated compounding pharmacies. Nine executions nationwide have been stayed or postponed since late April, when Oklahoma prison officials halted the execution of Clayton Lockett after noting that the lethal injection drugs weren't being administered into his vein properly. Lockett's punishment was halted and he died of a heart attack several minutes later. "I think after Clayton Lockett's execution everyone is going to be watching very closely" Fordham University School of Law professor Deborah Denno, a death penalty expert, said of this week's executions. "The scrutiny is going to be even closer."
Marcus Wellons is set to die Tiesday night, in Georgia, followed six hours
later by John Winfield, who faces execution at 12:01 a.m. Wednesday in Missouri. John Ruthell Henry's execution is scheduled for 6 p.m. Wednesday in Florida.
Georgia and Missouri both use the single drug pentobarbital, a sedative. Florida uses a three-drug combination ofmidazolam hydrochloride, vecuronium bromide and. potassium chloride. Despite concerns about the drugs and how they are obtained, ,death penalty supporters say all three convicted killers are get-
ing what they deserve. Wellons was convicted in the 1989 rape and murder of India Roberts, his 15year-old neighbor in suburban Atlanta. Soon after the girl left for school, another neighbor heard muffled screams from the apartment where Wellons was' living. Later that day, a man told police he saw a man carrying what appeared to be a body in a sheet. Police found the girl's body in a wooded area. She had been strangled and raped. The Georgia State Board of Pardons and Paroles on Monday denied clemency
to Wellons, leaving his fate in the hands of the courts.
In Missouri, Winfield had been dating Carmelita Donald on and off for sev-. eral years and fathered two of her children. Donald be.gan dating another man. One night in 1996, in ajealous rage, Winfield showed up outside Donald's apartment in St. Louis County and confronted her, along with two friends of hers.
Winfield shot all three women in the head. Arthea Sanders and Shawnee Murphy died.
Donald survived but was blinded.

Anderson, Welch'encouraged' by summer debuts despite losses
BY DUSTIN KENT
Graceville and Malorie each made opened their summer season Monday afternoon at 'Poplar Springs, with both coaches saying there were many positives to take despite suffering losses. GHS went 2-1 on the day with wins over Arnold and Houston Academy (Ala.) and a close loss to Northview (Ala.), while Malone was 1-2 with losses to Arnold and Northview and a blowout victory over Rehobeth (Ala.).
It could've easily been a perfect day for Graceville if not for a Northview three-pointer with eight seconds left to give the
Cougars a onepoint lead.
almost answered with a game-winning triple of his Sown 'that went in
and out 'as time
Given the level of competition and it being the first live action of the summer for his team, Graceville coach Matt Anderson said he was very happy with what he saw Monday.
"I was pleased. For it to be the first time Out, that we played, the kids did well," he said. "I was very concerned before, but we played well, rebounded well, and got balanced scoring
all day long. As long as we continue to get a little better each day and continue to work, we'll be fine.
"To go 2-1 and be one shot away from going 3-0 was pretty encouraging, especially with as good as Northview ended up being and as talented as Arnold was. I probably wouldn't have thought we'd go 2-1 dur' first time out."
For Malone, the day was slightly less successful from a win-loss perspective, but coach StevenWelch said his team also exceeded his expectations for the summer opener. The defending IA state champion Tigers lost the opener to Northview 41-35 before rebounding to roll over Rehobeth 62-34,
with a 51-41 loss to Arnold ending their afternoon. "I thought we played alright. We just had a few stretches where we couldn't get a rebound or make a shot," Welch said. "I don't want to go 1-2 everyday, but I was really encouraged by what I saw. We're in a pretty good place for the shape we're in. Kids just have got to learn new roles and get better. "But I feel better after the first day this summer than I did after the first day last summer. Obviously we had more offensive firepower last year, but I think all throughout we've got better players with more experience. It's just a matter of getting that identity and playing to it." Malone was without one of
its top players in rising junior guard Chancellor Lockett, who was out with a stomach virus. But the coach praised the efforts ofTaqualan Brelove, Jarmel Dillard, and Cody Henson in providing support for rising.senior guard Antwain Johnson. "Obviously not having.Chancellor hurt us a little bit, but we had some kids who played real good," Welch said. "We played pretty good against Rehobeth. We were a little more athletic than them and were able to get some fast-break opportunities. That was the key. In the two we lost, we didn't get as many stops so we played more halfcourt basketball with bigger teams and that's going to be hard for us to do." L

The United States' John Brooks (second from left) scores his side's second goal during the Group G World Cup match between Ghana and the United States at the Arena das Dunas in Natal, Brazil on Monday. The United States defeated Ghana 2-1.
Brooks' goal happened just like in a dream
The Associated Press
NATAL, Brazil - Smiling ear to ear after winning a World Cup match with his first international goal, John Brooks had a story to share.
"I told some teammates that I dreamed that I scored in the 80th minute and we won the game," he said. "And now it was the 86th minute and we won."
One of the surprise picks by U.S. coach Jurgen Klinsmann, Brooks hadn't been in the starting lineup for the Americans' World Cup opener against Ghana. But after central defender Matt Besler felt tightness in his right hamstring during the final five minutes of the first half,,Klinsmann sent the 21-year-old Brooks on for the start of he second. Just four minutes after Andre Ayew's 82nd-minute goal wiped out a lead Clint Dempsey had given the U.S. just 30 seconds in, Brooks outjumped Ghana's John Boye to meet Graham Zusi's corner kick and bounced an 8-yard header past goalkeeper Adam Kwarasey. Overcome with emotion, Brooks ran in disbelief, slumped to the ground arms first and felt teammates pile onto him. When they finally moved off, he put both hands to his lips and blew a kiss. Brooks thought back to two nights
earlier and the dream. It also was on a header.
From a corner kick.
Just liked it happened.
"It was unbelievable," Brooks said. "I couldn't believe it." . Klinsmann chose Brooks over Clarence Goodson, an unused substitute on the 2010 World Cup team. Among the five German-Americans on the 23-man squad, Brooks made his national team debut last August and had only four appearances entering the World Cup. He was benched twice last season by Hertha Berlin, his club in the German Bundesliga, for a poor performance in December and being unable to train in April because he was hampered by a tattoo onhis back.
"With John, I saw, we saw, very . early that his passing is amazing. He's very calm for his age. Obviously he's very strong in the air because he's so tall," Klinsmann said. "This is what you read, then you have to figure out is he ready for such a big thing like a World Cup already or maybe does it take another year or two in his development?"
Klinsmann consulted with Hertha coach Jos Luhukay and sporting director Michael Preetz..
"They expected more from him the last season. There he got a little bit of a lesson from his coach," Klinsmann said. "It's part of grow-
ing, as well. But we knew that if we had the time now for more than a month to work him through every training session, to teach him some elements of the game, that he's willing to take that on and learn it quickly. And obviously he learned it quickly."
As the American Outlaws chanted their way out of the stadium, Brooks missed the chance to meet Vice President -Joe Biden when he visited the locker room. Brooks and Jermaine Jon6s had been chosen for random drug tests. Brooks, who lives in Berlin and has family in Chicago, has only visited the U.S. for training camps and vacation. But speaking one day in California last month, he said, "When I'm here, I'm a full American. I play with heart for America." He had nerves initially Monday, yet is thrilled with how things ended..
"I think the first goal was perfect, a perfect start. Couldn't be better," Brooks said.
SNearly two hours after the final whistle, Brooks was among the last U.S. players to leave the locker room. Someone asked whether he thinks he will start against Portugal on Sunday.
"I don't expect anything," he said. "I just give my best in every training session, and we'll see."

Altidore to have injured hamstring examined
The Associated Press
SAO PAULO - Jurgen Klinsmann is optimistic forward Jozy Altidore will return for the U.S. during this World Cup. Altidore underwent an MRI exam on his injured left hamstring Tuesday after the U.S. squad returned to its Sao Paulo headquarters from Monday night's 2-1 victory against Ghana. Results weren't immediately available, and there is some doubt because
hamstrings aren't always quick to heal. "With Jozy, we've got to see how he now reacts the next couple days with his hamstring, and we're full of hope that he comes back still in this tournament, and that's what we kind of work on every day," Klinsmann said. "The medical staff is doing a tremendous job (for) weeks, so we still have to hope that Jozy will be back. How quickly? That is down to his healing process."

The United States' Clint Dempsey turns away and celebrates after scoring the opening goal during the Group G World Cup match between Ghana and the United States at the Arena das Dunas in Natal, Brazil, on Monday.
FIFA times Dempsey
goal at 30 seconds
The Associated Press
RIO DE JANEIRO FIFA has officially timed Clint Dempsey's goal at 30 seconds into the United States' 2-1 win over Ghana.
Dempsey became the fifth fastest scorer inWorld Cup history on Monday in Natal.
The goal was initially timed at 29 seconds before being confirmed at one second later by FIFA
The only faster goals at a World Cup were by T1rkey's Hakan Suker (11 seconds against South Korea in' 2002), Czechoslovakia's Vaclav Masek (16 seconds against Mexico in 1962), Germany's Ernst Lehner (25 seconds against Austriain 1934), and England's Bryan Robson (27 seconds against France in 1982). Dempsey became the first American to score in three World Cups.
Spain set for lineup changes against Chile
The Associated Press
RIO DE JANEIRO Spain coach Vicente del Bosque promised on Tuesday to change his lineup for the team's must-win Group B match against Chile as the World Cup holders look tostay in the tournament.
Forwards 'Pedro Rodriguez and Cesc Fabregas are widely seen as the most likely candidates to start on Wednesday. after the 5-1 thrashing by the Netherlands in their opening match, though Del Bosque was not giving away any names..
"There will be changes, but few," Del Bosque said at the Maracana stadium. While Pedro would probably replace David Silva, Fabregas could slot in for Diego Costa if Del Bosque decides to leave the
physical striker 'on the bench in place of a 'false striker' attack. Defensive player Javi Martinez is meanwhile a candidate to slot in for Gerard Pique, while fullbacks CesarAzpilicueta and Jordi Alba are under scrutiny. Spain was looking forward to the match finally getting underway after four long days since Friday's humiliating defeat by the Netherlands, the losing finalists in 2010. "Anxiousness can also allow you to play better. The worst thing would be indifference. It's good to be a little anxious, but always in measured doses," Del Bosque said.
Spain was grappling with a psychological blow unlike any other it had experienced, according to Del Bosque, during its incredible run of winning two
European championships, either side of the lastWorld Cup.
The opening loss in Salvador was its worst competitive defeat since a 6-1 loss to Brazil at the 1950 World Cup.
"We can't, blame anyone, we lost the game. We just have to look forward. In life, there are solutions for everything," Del Bosque said. "It's still in our hands."
Spain finishes Group B play against Australia, which lost 3-1 to Chile. Spain would remain alive with a draw against Chile, although it would complicate things for the defending champions. Andres Iniesta looks set to stay in a lineup that has to retain Spain's attractive style of football-but must also be more efficient. Against the Netherlands,
Spain's normallyslickpassing game stuttered, while the possession it thrives off of was disrupted by a stronger,, steadier opponent in Salvador. Having conceded five goals in open play, Spain knows it must adapt to the situation.
"We have to win bywhatever.means necessary," Iniesta said on Tuesday. "I feel that we are prepared to win. We had a tough start and that makes it hard for it to feel normal around us as we usually feel, like it was before the first game.

Belgium's Axel Witsel wins a header during the Group H World Cup soccer match between Belgium and Algeria at the Mineirao Stadium in Belo Horizonte, Brazil, on Tuesday.
Tense Belgium fights back for 2-1 win over Algeria
The Associated Press
BELO HORIZONTE, Brazil Waiting and waiting for an equalizer, the tension started showing on the faces of the Belgium players as the second half wore on in the country's first World Cup match in 12 years.
Algeria was on the verge of a major upset in their Group H opener Tuesday, taking the lead through a penalty in the 25th minute. Try as they might, Belgium's attacking players just couldn't break down Algeria's defense.
In the end, it was the Belgian bench which found the way, with substitutes scoring twice for a 2-1 comeback win.
"We tired them. We just tired them down," Belgium coach Marc
Wilmots said. "I told them, 'Don't worry, we will score.'" Algeria's surprising lead stood for 45 minutes until Marouane Fellaini's strong glancing header, with his back to goal, from a Kevin De Bruyne cross in the 70th. Fellaini, who many had considered would start the match, had only come onto the pitch five minutes earlier and was Wilmots' final substitution.
Dries 'Mertens' right-foot strike beat Algeria's goalkeeper in the 80th after Eden Hazard saw him free on the right and set him up for the decider. Mertens, who went on at the start of the second half, sent his shot high in the net outside of Rais Mbolhi's reach. "We knew it would be tough, that there would be no space," Wilmots
said. "We made one error and we paid for it. The bench made the difference. We showed mental strength and we came back." The error was an obvious one. Belgium left back Jan VWrtonghen dragged down Sofiane Feghouli in the area, and the Algerian attacking midfielder got up and converted the resulting penalty. At that point, Algeria was on course to produce another upset of a major team as it did in 1982 when it beat West Germany in its first group match.
"We played a very good game against one of the favorites," Feghouli said. "We have to build on this."
The Algerians started brightly but faded toward the end against Belgium's unrelenting attack.

Mexico's goalkeeper Guillermo Ochoa, (left) saves a header by Brazil's Thiago Silva during the Group A World Cup soccer match between Brazil and Mexico at the Arena Castelao in Fortaleza, Brazil on Tuesday.
Mexico holds host
Brazil to 0-0 draw
The Associated Press
FORTALEZA, Brazil He was called a hero and a savior by his Mexican teammates. His Brazilian opponents said he produced miracles.
There is no doubt that Mexico goalkeeper Guillermo Ochoa was the one responsible for spoiling Brazil's hopes of another World Cup victory at its home tournament.
Ochoa made a series of outstanding saves to help his side hold Brazil to a thrilling 0-0 draw on Tuesday.
The resultleftbothteams with four points each after two games in Group A, but Brazil is ahead on goal difference going into their decisive final matches. Croatia and Cameroon meet on Wednesday for their second games after both opened with defeats.
"We can't avoid talking about their goalkeeper," Brazil striker Fred said. "He came up with at least four miracles."
Ochoa's first remarkable save prevented Neymar from scoring in the 26th minute. The Brazil striker's powerful header looked set to fly just inside the post when the goalkeeper dived to his right to push the ball wide.
Ochoa also made three other difficult saves to keep the hosts from breaking the deadlock - a shot by Paulinho in the 44th, a second-half effort by Ney-
mar from inside the area and a close-range header byThiago Silva in,the 86th minute which produced a remarkable block by the Mexico goalkeeper. "It was the match of my life," said Ochoa, who was visibly moved after the match. "To do it in aWorld Cup, in front of all the fans, it's incredible." Mexico captain Rafael Marquez said Ochoa was the "savior" and coach Miguel Herrera called him the "hero" of the match. "He did what we expected him to do, he came up with extraordinary saves," Herrera said. "I can't remember another Mexican goalkeeper doing such a great job in the World Cup."
A win by either team would have guaranteed a spot in the next round if Cameroon and Croatia were to draw in the jungle city of Manaus. "In the end, the 0-0 mirrors what happened, it was a very hard-fought match," Brazil coach Luiz Felipe Scolari said. "The draw wasn't a good result because a victory would have already allowed us to advance, but we need to be able to respect our opponent, which played very well."
Herrerawaspleasedwith his side's performance. "We had a great match against a great rival playing in front of its fans, in its stadium, in its country," he said.
Russia draws 1-1 with South Korea in Group H
The Associated Press
CUIABA, Brazil - Blundering Russia goalkeeper Igor Akinfeev was bailed out by teammate Alexander Kerzhakov in a 1-1 draw with South Korea in the World Cup on Tuesday that exposed both teams' deficiencies.
Akinfeev had already looked suspect in dealing with long-range shots before spilling Lee Keunho's speculative effort into his own net in the 68th minute, gifting South Korea the lead at the Arena Pantanal.
Kerzhakov, though, came to Akinfeev's rescue by turning in a shot from close range six minutes later - just three minutes after coming on as a substitute - to earn Russia a point from a poor-quality Group H match.
Akinfeev stayed on the ground inside his own net, head in his hands, after making his error, clearly embarrassed after dropping what was a routine save from a shot from about 30 yards. He was consoled by a couple of teammates, who patted him on the back. "It was a kid's mistake," Afinkeev said. "The goalkeeper of the national team shouldn't make mistakes like this one." Russia coach Fabio Capello has remained loyal to Akinfeev this season despite some patchy form, and stood by him again. "He is a great goalkeeper," Capello said. "There can be mistakes, of course
- some can get a penalty wrong ... and it's logical for a goalkeeper to make a mistake as well. "We were able to make
up for that and we can accept a mistake by a great keeper like Akinfeev." The explosive six-minute spell that featured both goals was not in keeping with the rest of a fairly mundane game characterized by slow build-up play, poor passing and wayward finishing. , A point leaves both teams behind Belgium, which beat Algeria 2-1 earlier Tuesday, but the group appears wide open based.on the opening two fixtures.
Having lost four of its last five games heading to Brazil, the South Koreans came into their eighth straight World Cup with concerns over their flimsy defense and a lack of goal threat. A 4-0 thrashing by Ghana in a warm-up in Miami last week highlighted those worrying de-
ficiencies perfectly. There was no hiding their toothless attack here, either, with the experienced Park Chu-young starting as the lone striker but justifying fears that he has lost his way after three ineffective years with Arsenal in the English Premier League. He was substituted i'n the 56th and his replacement, Lee, scored South Korea's goal. Russia, led by former England coach Fabio Capello, was just. as lifeless in attack - at least until Kerzhakov and Alan Dzagoev came off the bench
- and too functional in midfield. A dire first half was marked by the large contingent of Brazilian fans in the crowd doing slow hand clapping but South Korea coach Hong Myung-bo was satisfied by what he saw.

Nude photos distract Croatia's campaign
The Associated Press
SALVADOR, Brazil Croatia's coaches are urging their players to focus on facing Cameroon at the World Cup rather than lamenting the publication of photos showing some of them bathing nude at their training complex's swimming pool in Brazil. Since the paparazzi photos were published by Croatian media over the weekend, players have refused to speak to the media.
"The players are talking about that theme, but we want them to concentrate on the match against Cameroon," assistant coach Robert Kovac said on Tuesday. "If those photos were not published, they would be thinking about
Cameroon. Like this, they .are distracted by things outside the pitch." However, Kovac said he understood the players' reasons for boycotting the media.
"That was a private thing," he said. "They had a day off and they relaxed a bit. It was not appropriate by photographers to abuse the situation." Meanwhile, the. stakes will be high in Wednesday's Group A game at the Arena da Amazonia in Manaus, as both sides lost their opening match. Croatia was beaten 3-1 by Brazil, while Cameroon went down 1-0 to Mexico. .Kovac said the match in the Brazilian rainforest could be won by the team which copes better with the hot and humid' conditions.

Australia has no plans to sit back against Dutch
The Associated Press
PORTO ALEGRE, Brazil
- Facing the unenviable task of stopping a rampant Dutch strike force from adding to the five goals it put past Spain, Australian coach Ange Postecoglou is clear on one thing: trying to contain the Netherlands and hit back on the counter or play for a draw will be pointless.
"We have said right from the start that's not why we came to the World Cup (although) obviously we will haVe to be strong defensively because .the Dutch are very dangerous going forward," he said Tuesday ahead of the Group B match that his team needs to win to realistically stay in the World Cup. "It will be an enormous challenge for us to stop their attacking game, but the other side of that is if we just try and defend for 90 minutes there will.be only one result - and it won't be in our favor." Given perhaps the toughest draw in the competition, lowly-ranked Australia was always going to be up against it in its third consecutive World Cup.
Australia's Mile Jedinak (front) rises above Chile's Gary Medel to win a header during the Group B World Cup match in the Arena Pantanal in Cuiaba, Brazil on Friday. The mostly young team lost 3-1 against Chile after conceding two early goals, but fought back strongly and dominated for much of the second half. Now Australia finds itself having to fend off the attacking duo of Robin Van Persie and Arjen Robben, who shone in their, team's stunning opening 5-1 win against Spain. Postecogl8u has also had

World Cup finally sees the case for the defense
The Associated Press
CURITIBA, Brazil - In a World Cup full of goals and attacking intent, the scoreless drawbetween Iran and Nigeria stood out. The Iran side has been criticized for playing defensively, and trying to strangle the game. It joins a long list of teams accused of "parking the bus" in order to grind out results. While it may not make for entertaining games, defensive tactics have often been hugely successful in football - sometimes even helping underdogs win major titles.
Inter Milan in the .1960s:
Rightly or wrongly, Italy has a reputation for playing defensive football. Much of that stems from the great Inter Milan side of the 1960s, which won three SeSrie A titles and two European Cups. Under Argentine coach Helenio Herrera, Inter perfected the "catenaccio' style of football, which translated as "door bolt."
igenina at 1990 Wordd Cup: Argentina was a very different team in the 1990 World Cup ,in Italy compared to the one that won the title four years earlier in Mexico. Though it was still led bythe great Diego Maradona, Argentina won over few neutral fans. Though it made the final, where it lost 1-0 toWest Germany, Argentina only scored five goals in
the seven games it played.
Greece at Euro 2004:
Greece winning the EuroRean Championship in Potugal in 2004 ranks as one of the great surprises in . football history. Its previous appearance in a major tournament, the 1994 World Cup in the U.S., was a disaster. Itreturned home having lost all three games, scoring no goals and conceding 10. German coach Otto Rehhagel made sure his team would not suffer similar ignominy. Throughout the tournament, Greece was extremely well-disciplined with athletic defendersand hard-working midfielders.
Chelsea in 2012 Champions League: Nigeria midfielder John Obi Mikel ' bemoaned Iran's tactics during the 0-0 draw betweehi the two sides in their opening match in the 2014 World Cup. Iran, he said, had "11 men behind the ball the entire game." Mikel, though, should know what a defensive approach can achieve: He was an integral member of the 2012 Chelsea side that surprisingly won the Champions League. Facing a Barcelona side over two legs in the semifinals, coach Roberto Di Matter's team spent most of the 180 minutes defending desperately and focusingon counterattacks. After winning the first leg 1-0 at home, Chelsea went through 3-2 on aggregate.
defensive lineup after Ivan Franjic pulled a hamstring against Chile, ending his competition.
An Australian victory would be one of the great shocks of the World Cup, especially given the Dutch performance last week. But there was no sign that Postecoglou, who only/ took over the national side in October, was overawed. "We keep saying we want to measure ourselves against the best, and we are getting an opportunity to do that," he said. "Tomorrow we will find out where we are at." Captain Mile Jedinak said the team had learnt from its poor start against Chile. .
Palacio longs for action
The Associated Press
BELO HORIZONTE, Brazil - Rodrigo Palacio celebrated his inclusion in Argentina's highly competitive World Cup squad by scoring a goal in a warm-up against Trinidad and Tobago. Then he twisted his right ankle in the same match, and his World Cup appeared to be over before it had started. Now the 32-year-old Inter Milan striker is training with the team again, and dreaming of getting another chance of representing Argentina on the big stage. "When I twisted my ankle I got scared because I feared that it might be something serious," Palacio said Tuesday. "But the doctors told me stay calm that it wasn't anything serious. After the MRI scan I calmed down." Palacio scored 17 goals in the Italian Serie A last season, making him Inter's top marksman and the fourth highest scorer in the league, alongside Argentina team mate Gonzalo Higuain, whp plays for Napoli, and Udinese's Antonio Di Natle.
Still, that's barely enough to make the

"I know that the starters are (Sergio) Agtiero,, Higuain. and (Lionel) Messi," Palacio said. "But I'm ready in case the coach needs me, perhaps for a change of tactics."
Palacio hasn't seen any World Cup action since 2006, when he came on as a second-half substitute for Hernan Crespo in Argentina's opener against Ivory Coast. -He wasn't called up for the 2010 tournament.

Tony Gwynn, sweet-swinging 'Mr. Padre,' dies
The Associated Press
SAN DIEGO - Tony Gwynn could handle a bat like few other major leaguers, whether it was driving the ball through the "5.5 hole" between third base and shortstop or hitting a home run off the facade in Yankee Stadium in the World Series.
He was a craftsman at the plate, whose sweet lefthanded swing made him one of baseball's greatest hitters.
Gwynn loved San Diego. San Diego loved "Mr. Padre" right back. Gwynn, a Hall of Famer and one of the greatest athletes in San Diego's history, died Monday of oral cancer, a disease he attributed to years of chewing tobacco. He was 54.
"Our city is a little darker today without him but immeasurably better because of him," Mayor Kevin Faulconer said in a statement. In a rarity in pro sports, Gwynn played his whole career with the Padres, choosing to stay in the
'city where he was a twosport star in college, rather than leaving for bigger paychecks elsewhere. His terrific hand-eye coordination made him one of the game's greatest pure hitters. He had 3,141 hits
- 18th on the all-time list - a career .338 average and won eight batting titles to tie Honus Wagner's NL record.
He struck out only 434 times in 9,288 career atbats. He played in San Diego's only two World Series - batting a combined .371 - and was a 15-time All-Star. He had a memorable home run in Game 1 of the 1998 World Series off fellow San Diegan David Wells, and scored the winning run in the 1994 AllStar Game despite a bum knee.
Gwynn never hit below .309 in a full season. He spread'out his batting titles from 1984, when he batted .351, to 1997, when he hit .372.
Gwynn was hitting .394 when a players' strike ended the 1994 season, denying him a shot at becoming
the first player to hit .400 since San Diego native Ted Williams hit .406 in 1941. Gwynn befriended Williams and the two loved to talk about hitting. Gwynn steadied Williams when he threw out the ceremonial first pitch before the 1999 All-Star Game at Boston's Fenway Park.
FellowHall of Famer Greg Maddux tweeted,. "Tony Gwynn was the best pure hitter I ever faced! Condolences to his family." Gwynn was known for his hearty laugh and warm personality. Every day at 4 p.m., Gwynn sat in the Padres' dugout and talked baseball or anything else with the media. Tim Flannery, who was teammates with Gwynn on the Padres' 1984 World Series team and later was on San Diego's coaching staff, said he'll "remember the cackle to his laugh. He was always laughing, always talking, always happy."
"The baseball world is going to miss one of the greats, and the world itself is going to miss one

of the great men of mankind," said Flannery, the San Francisco Giants' third base coach. "He cared so much for other people. He had a work ethic unlike anybody else, and had a childlike demeanor ofplaying the game just because
he loved it so much." Gwynn had been on a medical leave since late March from his job as baseball coach at San Diego State, his alma mater. He died at a hospital in suburban Poway, agent John Boggs said.
Gwynn's wife, Alicia, and other family members were at his side when he died, Boggs said. Gwynn's son, Tony Jr., was with the Philadelphia Phillies, who later placed him on the bereavement list.
aNBs Chris Bosh saysHeat season was a nd
Miami's Chris Bosh sa ys, Heat season was a grind
The Associated Press
SAN ANTONIO - About an hour after the season ended, Chris Bosh was standing near the bus ramp from where the Miami Heat would soon depart for the airport and the offseason.
Miami's two-year reign was over.
And Bosh almost sounded relieved.
The Heat got rolled in the NBA Finals by San Antonio, losing in five games, the last three of them lopsided, and for the first time since 2011 there would be no championship parade in Miami. The same team that the Heat wore down in the 2013 finals had all the answers, ushering in a summer for Miami that will be filled with questions about the futures of LeBron James, ,Dwyane Wade and Bosh. "I don't think anybody really enjoyed, this season like in years past," Bosh told The Associated
Press. "There was no, like, genuine joy all the time. It seemed like work. It was . a job the whole year. Winning was just a relief. Losing was a cloud over us sometimes and then we'd break out of it - and then go right back But we got here. We had a chance., They were just better."
That being said, and while hardlycoinmittingto a fifth season of the "Big 3" era in Miami, Bosh made it clear: The group wants to remain intact. Whether or not personal choices and financial realities of a salary-capped, luxury-taxed world will allow that to happen remain unclear.
"We want to stay together, man," Bosh said. "I'll say that. It's a great organization, great team and great city. And to have a chance, that's all you can ask for." James insisted he hasn't thought about what decisions he has to make this summer. Wade has often expressed interest in remaining with, the Heat.
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
Spurs guard Manu Ginobili (20) goes in for a dunk over Heat center Chris Bosh (1) during Game 5 of the NBA Finals on Sunday in San Antonio.
Bosh has said repeatedly that he wants to stay. But all can become free agents in the next couple weeks, and the Heat might 'be rooting for that to happen. By opting out, they could get new deals with the Heat and create financial
flexibility for team president Pat Riley to lure new pieces into a locker room that will need new faces. "The whole league continues to get better every single year," James said. "Obviously we would need to get better from everyfac-
et, every position. It's just how the league works." .
For as well as he played in Game 5 - 31 points and 10 rebounds in what would be the final game of Miami's run as champion - James' best display of defense came afterward, when pressed repeatedly about his future.
"I will deal with my summer when I get to that point," James said. "Me and my team will sit down Sand deal with it. I lov9Iami. My family loves it.But obviously right now that's not even what I'm thinking about. You guys are trying to find answers. I'm not going to give you one."
The Heat aren't expected to hold exit interviews until later this week.
James and Wade shared the postgame podium Sunday, possibly for the last time. Wade seemed to be laboring in the last two games of the finals, shoot-, ing just 28 percent from the floor and 50 percent from the foul line.
"It wasn't just Dwyane,"
Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said when asked about Wade's struggles. "It was pretty much everybody except for LeBron." Wade's knees and health have been a concern all year, never more than in the finals.
"I'm all right," Wade said. "Can't win them all. You try to, but you can't win them all."
The Heat have known for four years that t s ummer of decisions and possible changes was looming; and have planned accordingly. Besides the "Big 3," the locker room is filled with free-agents-in-waiting. Chris Andersen, who excelled for little money the last two seasons, will be getting a raise from someone. Mario Chalmers can leave, Ray Allen isn't sure if he'll play in Miami or anywhere else, Shane Battier is retiring and Udonis Haslem - who has been with the Heat for 11 seasons, just like Wade - also has an uncertain future.
Spurs could stick around, even if Duncan doesn't
The Associated Press
SAN ANTONIO - Tim Duncan conducted his postgame interview flanked by his two children. Someday soon he may decide that they, and not Tony Parker and Manu Ginobili, will be his fulltime running mates. Duncan's eventual retirement - whether it's next week, next summer, or after the next championship - probably won't end what's been a 15-year run at or near the .top for the San Antonio Spurs. San Antonio appears to be positioned to keep rolling along.

Dear Annie: My husband calls me the "Throwaway Queen." I have gotten into hot water for not asking before I trashed something. Now I think I've made a huge mistake..
My husband is now far into dementia. We are thinking of moving, so I started cleaning out storage bins. I threw away two items of my husband's that had been in those bins for years. Last week, his son came over to help clear out some things and specifically asked for the items I tossed. They apparently were of sentimental value to him. I acted as if I hadn't a clue what he was talking about, but I feel so guilty and ashamed. This is a burden on my conscience, and I don't know what to do.
I don't want to keep lying to him, but I'm afraid of confessing. What should I do?
Dear Callfornia: Imagine the reaction from your stepson when he discovers that you threw out these two items. We think you can tolerate his anger and disappointment. Please tell him. Apologize profusely. Say you had no idea he would want these things, or you would have saved them. Say that you are ashamed for not telling him sooner. Ask him to forgive your lapse in judgment. We think once he gets past his disappointment, you both will be able to put this behind you.
Robert Fritz, who developed Structural Dynamics, said, "If you limit your choices only to what seems possible or reasonable, you disconnect yourself from what you truly want."
I have mentioned before that it pays to pause and consider your-options, not just play on autopilot. This deal is another good example. South is in four spades. How should the defense proceed after West leads the heart ace? Whenyou have 5-4-2-2 distribution and the right count for one no-trump, open in your five-card suit when it is a major. If the five-card suit is a minor, open one no-trump with strong doubletons or when your rebid might be uncomfortable if you start with one of your long suit. Here, if North opens one diamond and South responds one heart, North has an easy one-spade rebid. So North should open one diamond. After South actually bid one spade, North had just enough to raise to four spades. But if North had settled for three spades, South would probably have raised to game, although he might have rebid three no-trump, the game contract that is unbeatable.
After taking the first trick, West will continue with the heart king. But what does he do next?
There are two answers to that question: Cash the club ace to save the overtrick or take two club tricks! It all depends upon East. He should realize that his side
needs two heart and two club winners. So it must be right to ruff his partner's heart king and shift to a club. As you can see, this is the only way to defeat the contract.

Cleveland Browns quarterback Johnny Manziel (fight) and Zafiro Makroglou, 6, exchange hats at the Cleveland Metroparks Zoo in Cleveland on Tuesday. The Browns rookies interacted with young individuals with Youth Challenge, which assists children with physical disabilities to help them feel comfortable in social settings and get them involved in recreational activities.
Johnny Football gets paid
Manziel, Browns come to terms on rookie's contract
The Associated Press
CLEVELAND - . The Browns .have agreed to terms with quarterback Johnny Manziel on his rookie contract. Financial terms of the deal were not immediately available. The Browns moved up in May's NFL draft to select the popular and polarizing Manziel in the first round with the No. 22 overall pick. The former Heisman Trophy winner will enter training camp next month as Cleveland's No. 2
quarterback behind veteran Brian Hoyer, who is coming off knee surgery.
Browns coach Mike Pettine recently stressed that Manziel has some catching Sup to do, but made it clear that Hoyer's lead was'not "insurmountable."
Mafiziel went 20-6 in two seasons at Texas A&M, where he earned the nickname "Johnny Football" for his dynamic 'playmaking abilities and- became the first freshman to win the Heisman. The Browns have signed four oftheir six 2014 draft picks.

Pallbearers carry the casket of Chuck Noll, the former Pittsburgh Steelers coach, out of Saint Paul Cathedral after a funeral service in Pittsburgh on Tuesday. Noll, a Hall of Fame coach who won four Super Bowls with the Steelers in the 1970s, died last Friday at age 82.
Steeler greats honor Noll
The Associated Press
PITTSBURGH - The lessons Chuck Noll passed down to his players - maxims that often applied as much to life as to football - are tacked on the wall in Mike Mularkey's office. They say things like "stress is when you don't know what you're doing" and "I' wasn't hired to motivate players, I was hired to coach motivated. players." They ring as true now -as they did when Mularkey heard them the first time playing tight end, for the Pittsburgh Steelers' Hall of Fame coach 25 years ago. -*. I It's why Mularkqy made
sure he had a chance to say goodbye, joining Steelers past and, present, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell and several hundred friends and family on Tuesday for a funeral mass honoring Noll, who passed away last week at age 82. "I've gotten more from Chuck off the field as much as I got on the field about how to db things the righi way," said Mularkey, now a tight ends
coach with Tennessee. "Family was important. Balance in life was important."
And that, as much as the record four Super Bowls Nollwonwhile transforming the Steelers from an NFL afterthought into a dynasty during the 1970s is what will resonate for the city he championed and the team he built
from scratch. The men he molded embraced atSaintPaulCathedral. They clutched programs featuring a picture of a vibrant Noll wearing a polo, shirt, shorts and the closest he ever came to a smile while at work. Each vowed to carry on the lessons Noll imparted from his first day of coaching to his waning days.

Johnson not at Texans' miniu-camp
The Associated Press
HOUSTON -- Houston receiver Andre Johnson has. skipped the first day of the Texans' mandatory mini-camp.
Johnson hasn't participated in any of the team's voluntary offseason workouts and said last month
that he wouldn't attend these workouts, either. On Tuesday, he missed the first of three days of practices that are the last workouts before the team begins training camp in late July., Johnson has said he has not asked for a'trade but last month wondered if Houston was "still the place.
The 82-year-old Johnson is Houstons longest-tenured player\ after joining thpe franchise in its second season.
The Texans were also 'without No. 1 overall pick Jadeveon Clowney, ,who is recovering from surgery to repak a sports hernia.

Weeden ready to be Romo's backup
The Associated Press
IRVING, Texas - Like
any backup who knows his role, Brandon Weeden happily stepped aside when Tony Romo wanted to take some first-team snaps on the opening day of minicamp for the
There was just. one'
problem: Weeden's jersey woldn't fit.
Romo, still recovering' from back surgery, tried to sneak in some unauthorized practice, time with a number swap Tuesday and had to settle for 'the No. 7 of Caleb Hanie, another backup.

coach. Jason Garrett caught on, and it looks as if No. 9 won't, get the allclear until training camp. With Kyle Orton failing to show up for the first mandatory practice. of the offseason, that leaves Weeden as the de facto starter.
This is the same Weeden who just flamed out in Cleveland, less than two years after he was drafted in the first round. And the Cowboys are six months removed from having tov use Orton in a playoffsor-bust finale after Romo ' injured his back in a season-saving win a week earlier.
For any Browns fans who are wondering, Weeden didn'tt enter a witness pro-
tection program. He's still No. 3. And he'll be ready if needed.
"Those scars are healed," saidWeeden, who was 5-15 as the starter in.Cleveland and had more interceptions than touchdowns in, two seasons. "I enjoyed my two years, met'some good buddies, had -some great teammates. But honestly, I've moved on." As long as Romo's rehab keeps going as smoothly as everyone says it is, Weeden won't have to be "the guy" like he was after the quarterback-starved Browns took him at No. 22 in 2012, the same spot they used
to get Johnny Manziel this year.
Weeden is ti-ying to imagine what the JohnnyFootball hype i like in his old football home, but he's been swarmedby plenty of reporters in the Cowboys' locker room. And he's not even the starter. The Cowboys didn't sign him until reports surfaced that Orton was considering retirement. "Whether it's the backup or third string, I was going to Cbme in and compete," Weeden said. "I think I told coach Garrett 15 times, I just want to come in and compete."

Hernandez challenges evidence in murder Lase
Hernandez challenges evidence in murder case
The Associated Press
FALL RIVER, Mass.
- Aaron Hernandez's attorneys on Monday sought to have a murder charge dismissed, saying prosecutors don't have enough evidence to tie the former New England Patriots' star to the murder of a semi-professional football player.
Prosecutors countered that they can show Hernandez was with Odin Lloyd when he was shot and that Lloyd's killing was part of a pattern of Hernandez committing acts of violence following nightclub disputes. Also Monday, the former tight endpleaded notguilty to charges that he attacked a handcuffed inmate and threatened to kill a guard and his family while at a countyjailin Dartmouth. Hernandez faces murder charges in Lloyd's June 17, 2013, slaying, as well as a separate case in which he is accused of gunning down two men in Boston in July 2012. He has pleaded not guilty in each case and is being held without bail.
Judge E. Susan Garsh will rule at a later date on the motions to dismiss the Lloyd murder charge and to suppress certain evidence gathered by the state, including cellphone records and surveillance video from dozens of cameras at Hernandez's North Attleborough home.
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
Former New England Patriots NFL football player Aaron Hemnandez (left) talks with one of his defense attorneys, Charles Rankin, during a hearing at the Bristol County Superior Court House on Monday in Fall River, Mass.
The judge on Monday also floated a possible trial date of Oct. 6, and she set a July deadline for the New England Patriots to respond to the defenses requests for access to the football team's personnel records.
Hernandez defense attorney James Sultan called the prosecutions evidence "woefully lacking" and maintained that the state has yet to suggest a specific motive for Lloyd's killing. "There's certainly a lot of what I would call smoke. No doubt about it," Sultan
said. "But you can't throw a bunch of stuff at the wall and say, 'Well, that's good enough.' That's not probable cause that he committed the crime." Prosecutor William McCauley countered that the state has "powerful" evidence against Hernandez. In what amounted to a preview of the state's arguments, he said toll booth, surveillance, GPS and cellphone records clearly place Hernandez in the car with Lloyd at the time of his murder.
McCauley said the state's
evidence also shows Hernandez had the "presence, knowledge and intent" to see the murder to its completion.
Prosecutors also suggested incidents in Boston, Providence and Miami show a "common pattern" of violence by Hernandez following disputes at nightclubs.
But Hernandez's lawyers pushed back against that notion, saying it was part of a persistent attempt to trash Hernandez's character. They criticized prosecutors for their focus on
his "affinity for guns,' his drug use and past run-ins with law enforcement. Lloyd had been at a Boston nightclub with Hernandez and others days before his bullet-ridden body was found about a half mile from Hernandez's NorthAttleborough home. Prosecutors in Boston have said a spilled drink in a nightclub led Hernandez to kill two people in a drive-by shooting. Another Hernandez associate, Alexander
Bradley, has filed a civil lawsuit alleging Hernandez shot him in the face on Feb. 13, 2013, after they argued following a visit to a Miami strip plub. Dressed in a blue blazer and khaki dress pants, Hernandez sat passively through Mondays nearly three-hour court hearing, one ofthelongest since his arrest last year. His mother and other supporters sat in the audience, as did Lloyd's mother and others.
Dolphins to begin stadium renovation
The Associated Press
MIAMI - The Miami Dolphins sealed a deal to renovate their stadium and will begin work this summer on the $350 million project, which will help South Florida's chances of hosting future Super Bowls.
County commissioners gave final approval Tuesday to the plan, which will pay incentives to the Dolphins for hosting the Super Bowl and other ma-. jor events. In exchange, team owner Steve Ross will pay for the renovations, with help from the NFL and possibly from a state subsidy
The team will continue to pay property taxes on the stadium. Renovations will include a canopy over the stands but not the field, and upgrading the lights, sound system and seats. NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell made it clear South Florida wouldn't get another Super Bowl without significant improvements to the stadium,
Bil ff TDarmus
ORCHARD PARK, N.Y.
- Buffalo Bills defensive tackle Marcell Dareus is back at practice for the start of a mandatory minicamp after missing two weeks to deal with two off-field legal problems. Dareus stretched with his teammates before the start of practice TIesday It was the 2011 first-round draft pick's first time back since participating in a voluntary practice on May 30. Hours after that practice, Dareus crashed his car into a tree while allegedly racing teammate Jerry Hughes. Dareus was charged with reckless endangerment and ticketed for several traffic violations, including drag-racing. Earlier last month, Dareus was arrested in his native Alabama and charged with possession of synthetic marijuana and drug paraphernalia. Dareus consulted with .jBills coach Doug Marrone
which opened in 1987. Ross has been lobbying for renovations since he became majority owner in 2009, and he called the agreement with MiamiDade County "unique and creative."
"We have one of the world's most aspirational cities, and as such deserve a stadium that will provide significant economic impact to MiamiDade County," Ross said in a statement. "This will not only secure the future of the. Dolphins, but will ensure that Miami has one of the world's best venues to host events of this magnitude going forward."
South Florida and New Orleans are tied for the most Super Bowls with 10. The most recent one in Miami was in 2010, and the next available Super Bowl date is 2019..,
The county will use tourist development money to pay the Dolphins $4 million for each Super Bowl at the stadium, $3 million
following the accident. The two agreed Dareus

for each college football national championship game and $2 million for a college playoff game. The county also will pay for events such as soccer matches and major concerts.
"It shows the commitment that our owner, Steve Ross, has to make this a world-class organization," Dolphins coach Joe Philbin said. "It's exciting for everybody in the organization, and I think it's exciting for everybody in the South Florida region. I'm sure we'll be able to attract some great events. It's a big day for us."
Ross is now eligible for NFL money given to teams that secure government help in stadium deals. He's also pursuing a new state program that could bring as much as $3 million ayear to the stadium beyond the $2 million the state already pays.
The deal with the county came together after efforts by Ross to secure county and state tax money failed last year. Without legisla-
tive approval of that proposal, the Dolphins were unable to go forward with a planned referendum on the issue in Miami-Dade County.
