Truck driver dies in Malone crash
A Holmes County truck driver is dead following a crash in Jackson County, according to the Florida Highway Patrol.
The wreck occurred at 12:35 p.m. Wednesday on State Road 2, east of State Road 71 in Malone. A report from FHP indicates that Clyde P Ellis, 52, of Bonifay, was driving a 2001 Freightliner truck, hauling a loaded logging trailer, traveling
through Malone on S.R. 2. The logging truck drove through the intersection of 11th Street, drifted right and entered the south shoulder of S.R. 2. It collided with a utility pole, a traffic information sign, and overturned onto its right side before coming to rest facing east, in the ditch on the south side of S.R. 2.
* The driver was not wearing a seatbelt at the time of the crash, according to the report.'
FHP has the crash under investigation.
Crews work to retrieve a wrecked logging truck, Wednesday afternoon in Malone. Driver Clyde P. Ellis, of Bonifay, did not survive the single-vehicle crash, according to the Florida Highway Patrol.

bill to school board
Costs come in below estimate
MARIANNA- County elections supervisor Sylvia Stephens was at Tuesday's meeting of the Jackson County School Board to deliver good news and an $11,400 bill.
The May 6 referendum that passed by a healthy margin to extend the half-cent sales tax for schools another 10 years was an election conducted by mail and administered by Stephens and her staff at the county elections office.. Opting to conduct the election in house, withouti:outsourcing some or all of the process, she said, shaved thousands off the price tag.
After calculating the costof postage, advertising, supplies and personnel, Stephens said the mail-in ballot election cost just under $39,400, which was good news for the school .bard, since the previous estimation put the cost at45,000. The school board also got help with the cost of a new$17,000 inserter. Cou tycommissionersagreed to pick up half the bill for that piece of equipment, which can be used for future elections and helped Stephens' office facilitate the ballot mail-out. At the end of February a partial payment of

Chipola launches new two-day schedule
Special to the Floridan
Chipola College officials are rolling out a new academic schedule for the fall semester which begins in August.
The new plan offers the possibility for students to register for a two-day schedule and attend classes only two days a week.
"This new schedule will provide another option for students in addition to online classes, evening classes, and a three or four-day schedule, said Dr. Sarah Clemmons, senior vice president of instruction. "Other colleges with a two-day schedule option report that it is popular with students who wish to commute fewer days of the week. Longer class periods also may be better for courses scheduled in labs." Typically under the old Chipola schedule, a three-hour class would
meet three times a week for 50 minutes each time. With the new schedule, a three-hour class would meet only twice a week for 75 minutes. Clemmons reports that not all student schedules will be able to plan a. two-day schedule depending on the classes required for particular academic plans or courses already completed. Some courses offered are single section or require various corequisites depending on the student's major or chosen transfer institution. Fall 2014 application deadline for new students is Aug. 6. Chipola offers the Bachelor of Science Degree, the Associate in Arts Degree, the Associate in Science Degree, Workforce Development programs and Industry Certifications. Bachelor's degrees include: Science Education Middle Grades (5-9); Biology Education Secondary Grades (612); Mathematics Education Middle
Grades (5-9); Mathematics Education Secondary Grades (6-12); English Education, Exceptional Student Education and Elementary Education; Business Administration with concentrations in Management or Accounting; and a Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN). The Associate in Arts (A.A.) degree is designed for students who plan to complete their first two years of college work and then transfer to a fouryear program at Chipola or another college or university. Credits earned are transferable and are applicable toward a bachelor's degree. Academic advising guides that outline requirements for specific majors are available from Student Affairs and are located on the college website at www.chipola.edu.
For more information about registration, visit www.chipola.edu or phone 718-2211.
Hurricane preparedness workshop held
Special to the Floridan
West Florida Electric Cooperative held a meeting for emergency operations center personnel, city personnel, fire departments and law enforcement agencies in Calhoun, Holmes, Jackson and Washington counties. During the meeting, attendees toured the cooperative's service center and saw a firsthand demonstration of how cooperative members can report outages. They also learned about how crews are dispatched and the various ways WFEC personnel communicates with members using Facebook, Twitter and media outlets. Electrical safety information was also shared with all those in attendance, which is especially important for first-responders. This annual gathering allows electric cooperative personnel, EOC and city personnel, fire departments and law enforcement to collaborate and share ideas about how to best handle power outages and emergency situations caused by storm damage to the area. "This workshop is vital to the success of restoration efforts when our distribution system sustains catastrophic damage caused by hurricanes, tornadoes, severe thunderstorms, or other acts of nature. It allows us to discuss problems that we've encountered in the past and brainstorm about how we

Special to the Floridan
June is Men's Health Month and Jackson Hospital is proud to increase awareness or problems that could be prevented and encourage early detection and treatment of men's diseases. This month gives Jackson Hospital an opportunity to encourage men to seek medical treatment for health maintenance. According to the Men's Health Network, "One in two men: is diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime compared to one in three women. Prostate cancer is the most common cancer in men and the second leading killer of men, behind lung cancer."
Prostatitis can be an issue for males of all ages and affects 35 percent of men aged 50 and older. Men's Health Network states, "Each year over 230,000 men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer and about 30,000 will die of it."
"The slowing of the urinary stream, having to get up at night to urinate, and increased frequency are common symptoms of prostate cancer," Jackson Hospital urologist Dr. John Chacko states. 'A simple blood test called Prostatespecific antigen and a digital rectal exam are the two most commonly used tests."
To schedule an appointment with Dr. Chacko, call Chipola Surgical & Medical Specialties at 482-0017.

Florida set to execute killer of 2 wiv
The Associated Press
STARKE - Florida was setWednesdayto execute a
Tampa area man who killed his estranged wife and her young son
in 1985, two
Ruthell years after
he had been
paroled for murdering his previous spouse. John Ruthell Henry, 63, was scheduled to receive a lethal injection at 6 p.m. EDT for the stabbing death of Suzanne Henry in Pasco County.
He also was convicted in Hillsborough County of stabbing Suzanne Henry's 5-year-old son, Eugene Christian, near Plant City, hours after the woman's murder.
It would be the 13th execution in Florida since April 2013, and the 18th since Republican Gov. Rick Scott took office in
2011. On Wednesday, the U.S. 11th Circuit Court of Appeals rejected Henry's effort to postpone the execution. His lawyers filed another appeal with the U.S. Supreme Court, but it has rarely halted Florida executions.
Hours earlier, Georgia and Missouri carried out separate executions, the first since a botched lethal injection in Oklahoma in April revived concerns about capital punishment. Neither execution had any noticeable complications. Georgia and Missouri both use the single drug pentobarbital, a sedative. Florida uses a three-drug combination of midazolam hydrochloride, vecuronium bromide and potassium chloride. Midazolam, a sedative used before surgery, has only been used in Florida since October; previously, sodium thiopental was used, but its U.S. manufacturer stopped making
it and Europe banned its manufacturers from exporting it for executions. During the first Florida execution using midazolam, it appeared to an Associated Press reporter that it took longer for inmate William Happ to lose consciousness than others who have been executed under the previous drug mix. In the six executions since, the process has appeared to go normally. Scott on Tuesday brushed aside questions about the state's execution procedures, saying he has to "uphold the laws of the land."
When asked directly if he had discussed with the Department of Corrections what happened in Oklahoma and whether any changes were needed in Florida, Scott would only say: "I focus on making sure that we do things the right way here." Henry, the condemned man, had previously
pleaded no contest to second-degree murder for stabbing his commonlaw wife, Patricia Roddy, in 1976. He served less than eight years in prison before being released in 1983. He had been on parole for two years when he killed his wife and the boy. Suzanne Henry's relatives told reporters she hadn't known about John Henry's previous killing when she married him after his release.
During Henry's trial, prosecutors said the unemployed bricklayer went to Suzanne Henry's home three days before Christmas of 1985 to talk about buying a gift for the boy, who was Suzanne's son from a prior relationship. They fought over Henry living with another woman and he stabbed her 13 times in the neck and face.
Prosecutors said Henry then took the boy and drove around for nine
hours, sometimes smoking crack cocaine, before stabbing him five times in the neck.
Hours later, Henry told a detective, he found himself wandering a field. He later told therapists he had killed the child to reunite him with his mother. Henry tried to use an insanity defense for killing his wife.
Psychiatrists at the trial testified that Henry had a low IQ, suffered from chronic paranoia andsmoked crack. He told them he had intended to commit suicide after killing the boy but said he was unable to go through with it.
In recent months, Henry's attorneys have questioned whether his client was mentally stable enough to comprehend his death sentence. In an appeal the Florida Supreme Court rejected last week, attorney Baya Harrison III wrote that
Henry's "abhorrent childhood, extensive personal and family mental health history, poor social adjustment, and lack of rational thinking and reasoning skills so impaired his adaptive functioning that he was actually performing at the level of a person with an IQ of 70." In May, a panel of mental health experts said Henry doesn't suffer from mental illness or an intellectual disability and that he understands "the nature and, effect of the death penalty and why it is to be imposed on him," according to court records. 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 died of a heart attack several minutes later.

LAND O'LAKES - A 9-year-old boy is dead and his younger brother is in serious condition after being struck by a van while walking their dog with their mother. The dog also died in the crash Wednesday morning in Land O'Lakes, which is north of Tampa. The Florida Highway Patrol says Anita Pallares was walking on the correct side of the road with her sons - 9-year-old Jorge Cruz and 7-year-old David Cruz when the van hit them.

Conservationists sue over rare snail
ST. PETERSBURG - The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is being sued for Allegedly failing to protect a rare Florida snail under the Endangered Species Act.
Center for Biological Diversity attorney Jacki Lopez says the Ichetucknee siltsnail "may not be the most charismatic animal," but its decline serves as an indicator of poor health for a spring along the Ichetucknee River in north Florida.
The tiny freshwater
snail also is known as the sand grain snail.
The center sued the
wildlife service Tuesday in federal court in Washington, D.C.
According to the lawsuit, the snail's limited habitat in 10 square yards of submerged mosses and cypress roots is threatened by upstream pollution and groundwater pumping.
Florida-based wildlife service spokesman Jeff Fleming said the agency is reviewing hundreds of species - including the snails - for protection.
Wildlife Conservation Commission also has approved methods that make it easier for scuba divers to catch lionfish in the wild. Aquarium shops would be allowed to, obtain new lionfish from divers.
The fish have venomous spines, but they are edible.
The commission gave preliminary approval to the lionfish ban in April. Officials finalized the ban Wednesday at the commission's meeting in Fort Myers. The ban takes effect Aug. 1. Lionfish are considered as menacing to native wildlife throughout the Atlantic as Burmese pythons are in Florida's Everglades. Both invasive species have thrived far from their native habitats, with no natural predators here to control their populations.

minugrant children held in crowded, concrete cells
The Associated Press.
- Children's faces pressed against glass. Hundreds of young boys and girls covered with aluminum foil-like blankets next to chain-link fences topped with barbed wire. These were the sights from Wednesday tours of a crowded Border Patrol stations in south Texas and Arizona, where thousands of immigrants are being held before they are transferred to other shelters around the country.' , It was the first time the media was given access to the facilities since President Barack Obama called the more than 47,000 unaccompanied -children who have entered the country illegally this budget year an "urgent hu'manitarian situation." Border Patrol stations like the one in Brownsville and Nogales were not meant for long-term custody. Immigrants are supposed to wait there until they are processed and taken to detention centers.
But the surge in children arriving without their parents has overwhelmed the U.S. government. The surge, which has' been building' for three years, comes amid a steep overall increase in immi-' grant arrests in southern most Texas.
The children are mostly from Central America. They pose a particular challenge because the law requires Customsard Border BProtecih to transfer them-to he Department of Health and Human Services within 72 hours.
That agency's network of some 100 shelters around the. country has been over. capacity ,,or months and is now caring for more' than' 7,600 children.
Children began backing up in already overcrowde,d Border Patrol stations. Eventually, the Border Patrol began flying them toArizona, where it set up a massive processing center in the border 'city' of
Nogales, where reporters were also granted access Wednesday.
From there, the children are sent to private shelters or temporary housing at barracks on military bases in California, Texas and Oklahoma.
But the children at Fort Brown remain in the custody of an agency ill-equipped to care for Them.
On Wednesday, dozens of young boys were divided from dozens of young girls. Mothers with children still younger were in another cell.
Happier faces could be found in a side yard just outside the station. There, young children colored pictures under a camouflage tent.
A group of about a dozen girls of perhaps 5 or 6 sat under another tent outside the shower trailer, dark hair wet and shiny. Women wearing blue gloves combed, each girl's hair.
Tables held stacks of clean bluejeans, T-shirts and toiletries.
Deeper into the yard, teen girls kicked a soccer ball and tossed a football with workers from the' Federal Emergency Management Agency.
In Nogales, Arizona, girls playing soccer with two male border agents shrieked when their ball crossed over the chain link fence and away from the small recreational area covered by a white tent.
'Others playing basketball cheered on their teammates. :
But inside, the approximately 1,000 children in the clean, 120,000square-foot ware.house were silent.
In a roomy area with teenage boys,, a large, high-definition TV playing the World Cup went largely ignored.

aluminum foil. Chain link fences 15 feet tall and topped with barbed wire separate the children by age and gender.
Federal agents said they could not provide an estimate of the number of minors at the facility because the figure is fluid as children transition in and out.
SAuthorities in Nogales have struggled to adjust to their new role as temporary caretakers. For example, it took a few days of children, rejecting breakfast burritos before agents learned that Central Americans aren't accustomed to flour tortillas. FEMA renegotiated its contract with a food vendor to begin receiving corn tortillas instead. The children are fed three times a day and take turns by group to use the 200-seat dining area.

Relief on the horizon as crews battle Navajo fire
The Associated Press
- As summer approaches, relief is in sight for droughtstricken New Mexico and many other parts of the West as Mother Nature appears ready to ease up on her back-to-back' bldws of stifling heat and gusty winds.
A break in the unfavorable weather can't come soon enough for the hundreds of firefighters battling a blaze on the Navajo Nation that has consumed more than 20 square miles of pinon and juniper forest, along with grazing 'lands that tribal livestock owners have used for centuries. The Assayii Lake Fire has destroyed at least four structures. Another 50 homes near the rural communities of Naschitti and Sheep Springs were threatened, with some in Naschitti evacuated. Forecasters with the National Weather Service said storms moving across the Southwest have helped raise humidity levels, and the winds are expected to die down by Thursday, giving firefighters the window needed to directly attack the flames.
"What we saw over the past three or four days will basically end tomorrow. No more wind," meteorologist Chuck Maxwell said Wednesday.
Despite the variability in the weather and draiught, the fire season has been relatively slow across the U.S., according to 'the Nationhal Interagency Fire Center i Idaho. The number of acres burned so far this year is
half:of the 10-year average, and there have been fewer large fires. In the Southwest, the acreage burned is only 46 percent of average. S "The reason the Southwest is below average is because it had a late start to Sits ,fireseason,"' said Robyn s Broyles with the interagency fire center.

Teen stowaway can't believe he survived
The Associated Press
SAN JOSE, Calif. -A Somali immigrant who survived an arduous flight to Hawaii stowed away in a jet's wheel well says he was trying to reach his morn, a refugee in Ethiopia who says her teenage son broke down in tears this week during their first call since his ordeal.
Mother Ubah Mohammed Abdule, who is seeking U.S. asylum, told The Associated PressWednesday her son, who she hasn't seen in eight years, cried on the phone Tuesday and told her he thought she was dead.
"He says, 'Mom you are not dead for sure? I thought you died in a boat trip. This is incredible news.' Then he became silent for a moment. Then he cried," she said. YahyaAbdi, 15, saidTuesdaythat he ran away from his Santa Clara home, hopped a fence at Mineta San Jose International Airport in April and climbed aboard the Hawaiian Airlines plane because it was the first flight he could find heading west, and he wanted to go see his mother. Yahya, who described crouching in the wheel well and covering his ears at takeoff, made his first public comments during a Google Chat on Tuesday to KPIX-5. "It was above the clouds, I could see through the little holes," Yahya said, who gave short, stilted answers.
When asked if he can believe he survived the trial, Yahya paused several seconds: "Uh, no." But he also said he wasn't scared. Yahya survived the flight at 35,000 feet despite low oxygen

In this April 20 photo, Yahye Abdi, 15, is loaded into an ambulance at Kahului Airport in Kahului, Maui, Hawaii, after he stowed away in the wheel well of a flight from San Jose, Calif., to Maui. The Somali immigrant who survived the arduous flight to Hawaii says he was trying to reach his mother, a refugee in Ethiopia.

The teen said he made the decision to get on board the plane because he didn't want to live with his stepmom and wanted to find his mother, who he hasn't seen since he was 7 years old. Yahya is staying at a temporary foster home. He will be a junior in high school this fall and plans to live with his aunt in the Minne-
Yahya has been spending his days doing normal teenage things. "I've been going to the movie theater and playing video games," he told KPIX-5.
Earlier this year, police said they were investigating possible criminal charges against the boy for climbing the airport fence, and that the teen was being cared for by child protective services. The Santa Clara County Office of the Public Defender confirms it has been appointed to "advise

"Good Call" gives readers a personal look into the Robertson family from Jase's view. He delves into stories from his youth, the dramatic change in his father after he found his faith, and the medical struggles faced by daughter Mia, who was born with a cleft lip and palate. Jase even reveals such intimate moments as his and wife Missy's wedding night. They were both virgins, having chosen to wait until they were married. Since the book's publication, Robertson said people have been surprised by references to the Bible and his faith in the book. While the show is known for ending with a family dinner and a prayer, Robertson said the show was never intended to be about religion. But faith, he said, is the family's foundation. "It's not a spiritual show, or it's not a religious show at all," he said. "It just shows what we do light-heartedly in our lives every day. But I think what people have to realize is that foundation is our faith. And the reason we have thick skin, and the reason we can have so much joy in our relationships and laugh at each other is because we believe we have the big stuff all right with our relationship with God and each other."

directly behind the Ayers residence, they discovered Charles Edward Shisler, 62, in the back yard of his home at 3708 W 25th St.
When initially confronted about the shooting by deputies, Shisler said "it was fireworks, an M80," according to the BCSO arrest report. The defendant, whose behavior was described as "extremely belligerent" was arrested and placed in a patrol car and questioned. At that point, the report says Shisler admitted to firing a 9mm gtun, but said that it was an accident. He also told deputies that he put the gun under his mattress. After being taken to the sheriff's office, Shisler told the investigating officer, "it was an accident; the damn gun doesn't usually shoot.

A family spokeswoman forwarded questions on Wednesday from AP to father Abdilahi Yusuf, a Santa Clara taxi driver, about why his son is not living with him. As with past requests, Yusuf has not responded. The spokeswoman, Zahra Billoo with the Council on American-Islamic Relations, says the family wants to maintain their privacy.
"You have to squeeze the hell out of the trigger to shoot it," he continued.
The defendant told officers that he tried to pick the gun up by its trigger, but it fired, shooting a hole through his screen. Deputies took blood from Shisler and testing that was done several hours after the shooting showed he had a .079 blood alcohol level. Shisler, whohasaprevious felony conviction for carrying a concealed firearm, was booked into the Bay County Jail, charged with manslaughter and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon. Authorities recovered a handgun that they believe was used in the shooting from the Shisler residence, the press release said.
The victim's family, which includes a newborn baby, was' in the home at the time of the shooting.

US man, 89, held on Nazi death camp charges
The Associated Press
PHILADELPHIA - An 89-year-old Philadelphia man was ordered held without bail Wednesday on a German arrest warrant charging him with aiding and abetting the killing of 216,000 Jewish men, women and children while he was a guard at the Auschwitz death camp.
The man, retired toolmaker Johann "Hans" Breyer, was arrested by U.S. authorities Tuesday night. Breyer spent the night in custody and appeared frail during a detention hearing in federal court, wearing an olive green prison jumpsuit and carrying a cane. Legal filings unsealed Wednesday in the U.S. indicate the district court in Weiden, Germany, issued a warrant for Breyer's arrest the day before, charging him with 158 counts of complicity in the commission of murder. Each count represents a trainload of Nazi prisoners from Hungary, Germany and Czechoslovakia who were killed at Auschwitz-Birkenau between May 1944 and October 1944, the documents said.
Attorney Dennis Boyle argued his client is too infirm to be detained pending a hearing on his possible extradition to Germany. Breyer has mild dementia and heart issues and has previously suffered strokes, Boyle said.
"Mr. Breyer is not a threat to anyone," said Boyle. "He's not a flight
But Magistrate Judge Timothy Rice ruled the detention center was equipped to care for Breyer, who appeared to comprehend questions about the nature of the hearing. A law enforcement officer also testified Breyer and his elderly wife grasped what was happening during his arrest Tuesday outside their home in northeast Philadelphia.
"They both understood," deputy marshal Daniel Donnelly said. "It wasn't news to them." . Breyer has been under investigation by prosecutors in the Bavarian town of Weiden, near where he last lived in Germany.
Breyer has admitted he was a guard at Auschwitz in occupied Poland during World War II, but has told The Associated Press he was stationed outside of the Auschwitz-Birkenau death camp part of the complex and had nothing to do with the wholesale slaughter of about 1.5 million Jews and others behind the gates.
Thomas Walther, a former federal prosecutor with the special office that investigates Nazi war crimes in Germany, now represents family members of some of Breyer's alleged victims as co-plaintiffs in the case. He called for a speedy extradition.
"The German court has to find late justice for the crimes of Breyer and for the victims and their sons and daughters as co-plaintiffs," Walther wrote in
an email to the AP "It is late, but not too late."
Prosecutors in Weiden could not be reached for comment Wednesday. Their investigation comes after years of failed U.S. efforts to have Breyer stripped of his American citizenship and deported.
A court ruling in 2003 allowed him to stay in the United States, mainly on the grounds that he had joined the SS as a minor and could therefore not be held legally responsible for participation in it. His American citizenship stems from the fact his mother was born in the U.S.; she later moved to Europe, where Breyer was born. During Breyer's arrest Tuesday, he asked the marshals to retrieve papers in his home that document his right to stay in the U.S., Donnelly testified. Breyer's wife and two grandsons attended the hourlong hearing in Philadelphia on Wednesday. His extradition hearing was scheduled for Aug. 21.
Efraim Zuroff, the head Nazi hunter at the Simon Wiesenthal Center in Jerusalem, said he hoped there would be no obstacles to Breyer's extradition and trial overseas.
"Germany deserves credit for doing this - for extending and expanding their efforts and, in a sense, making a final attempt to maximize theprosecution of Holocaust perpetrators," he said in a telephone interview from Jerusalem.

AG gets new expert
- Officials say three people were killed aboard a plane that veered from an Alabama airport runway and caught fire. Huntsville International Airport spokeswoman Karen Yarbrough said during a press conference Wednesday afternoon that authorities are unsure of the plane's intended destination. The passenger's identities haven't been released. Federal Aviation Administration spokeswoman Kathleen Bergen says the Westwind II aircraft was trying to depart at the time. She said authorities are unsure of the plane's destination. Photos from local news outlets showed flames and a large plume of black smoke that appeared to be rising.

for casino trial
- Alabama's attorney general has selected a new gambling expert to replace one who died. Attorney General Luther Strange's office notified a Montgomery judge that it will use former FBI agent Bill Holmes of Annandale, Virginia, to testify in a trial involving VictoryLand casino in Shorter. Holmes spent 20 years with the FBI, mostly working on gambling cases.
The attorney general's office had used New Jersey gambling expert Bob Sertell as an expert witness for more than a decade, but he died May 6.
A judge has scheduled a civil trial Sept. 9 over whether the state can keep more than $223,000 in cash and destroy 1,615 machines seized in the raid at VictoryLand in 2013.

Military identifies 17 kill-ed in '52 Alaska crash
The Associated Press
ANCHORAGE, Alaska The remains of about a third of the service members who died when their military transport plane crashed into an Alaska mountain and then was buried for decades in glacier ice have been identified, military officials said Wednesday.
The Department of Defense released the identities of 17 people onboard the C-124 Globemaster, which crashed in 1952, and said the remains will be returned to their families for burial with full military honors.
The first believed burial is planned Saturday in Caney, Kansas, for Army Pvt. Leonard A. Kittle, said Tonja Anderson-Dell, a Tampa, Florida, woman who has researched the crash for years. Her interest Was stoked about the crash when her grandmother, now deceased, told her details of her grandfather, Isaac Anderson, 21, who died when the plane hit the mountain on Nov. 22, 1952. Anderson-Dell also maintains a Facebook page about the crash and recovery efforts. The identifications were bittersweet for her because
her grandfather wasn't among them.
"He wasn't part of the ones that will be coming home," she told The Associated Press by telephone Wednesday. "However, I am still happy for the families that are bringing their servicemen home." The plane from McChord Air Force Base, Washington, was headed to Elmendorf Air Force Base in Anchorage when it went down with 52 crew members and passengers aboard.
Efforts to reach the crash site immediately after the crash were halted by bad weather. Days later, a member of the Fairbanks Civil Air Patrol, along with a member of the 10th Air Rescue Squadron, landed at a glacier and positively identified the wreckage as the Globemaster. The civil air patrol member was Terris Moore, president of the University of Alaska. He later told reporters the plane "obviously was flying at full speed" when it hit Mount Gannett, sliding down the snow-covered cliffs, exploding and disintegrating over 2 or 3 acres, according to an Associated Press story from the time..

Police: Story of bullet-blocking book unfounded
The Associated Press
DAYTON, Ohio - A white bus driver's story that a religious book in his shirt pocket blocked bullets as he was attacked by three black men isn't supported by evidence and testing, Dayton police said Wednesday as they closed the case,,which had been investigated as a possible hate crime.
Rickey Wagoner, 49, told police he was outside his
city bus Feb. 24 when men assaulted him. He said that two bullets hit the inch-thick book containing Bible verses and that one hit his leg and that he was stabbed in the arm, according to a police report. The report also said Wagoner told police he grabbed the gun and shot at the fleeing men. Wagoner had told police that the assailants were black and that he thought the attack might have been
a gang initiation. But his account wasn't found to be factual, Police Chief Richard Biehl said at a news conference. "This assault, as reported, is not true, not accurate," Biehl said. Police did not say Wagoner made up the story and didn't explain why he would have made the report. Biehl did say it appeared Wagoner owed on back taxes. A recording at a phone, listing for Wagoner said,
the voice mail could not accept more messages: No criminal charges have been filed. But the Greater Dayton Regional Transit Authority said Wednesday that it has charged Wagoner with violating its employee standards. Police did extensive testing, including simulating the shots fired into the book. Biehl said it wasn't credible to believe that bullets didn't pass through the book into Wagoner.

Bulldogs bounce back, go 3-0 at Poplar
BY DUSTIN KENT
The Marianna Bull-, dogs bounced back from a Tuesday night home loss by going to Poplar Springs on Wednesday afternoon and picking up three straight wins over the likes of Arnold, Paxton, and Daleville (Ala.).
MHITS went into the day just 5-4 overall in summer action after splitting a pair of games Tuesday against Sneads and Seminole County (Ga.), with the Indians taking a 67-60 victory in the nightcap. But the Bulldogs righted the ship Wednesday despite again not having 6-foot-5 junior Trey
Clemmons and playing without top scorer Herman Williams in a 46-36 win over Daleville. Williams came back for the final two contests, a 57-46 victory over Arnold followed by a 47-43 win over Paxton. "We had to work for it, especially with the last one," Marianna coach Travis Blanton said. "Paxton gave us some fits. They've got a good team and Arnold looks like they've improved a lot as well."
That makes it four wins in the last five outings for the Bulldogs, who also beat Sneads 68-26 in Tuesday's first game, a nice bounce back after a 2-3 stretch last week.
"Overall, I thought we played well (Wednesday) and played through some fatigue and rebounded a little better defensively," Blanton said. "Our .defense sort of got us. through it. We were missing some guys, but other guys stepped up and played well. Jaeden Harley did a nice job, Calvin Griffin did a nice job, Deontre Rhynes ... really, several guys did well." Marianna will finish out the week today with a trip to Cottondale High School to complete a stretch of seven games in three days.

"These are s me of'

The Hornets will be looking to build on their early summer success after taking wins over South Walton, Ponce de Leon and Bozeman, with their lone loss coming to Dothan.
But they'll have their hands full with a powerful pair of opponents in the Rams and Bearcats.
"When you're talking about Bainbridge and Rutherford, those are teams that are obviously very good and very talented and have a little more talent than us, but they're also very well-coached. All you can hope for is to see the kids compete and fight and show some heart and toughness and give themselves a chance.

The Graceville Tigers added to their: stellar start to the summer season Tuesday afternoon at Poplar Springs, taking two more wins over Daleville (Ala)land Bethlehem to improve to 4-1 overall.
Graceville opened play at Poplar on Monday by going 2-1 with wins over Arnold and Houston Academy (Ala) and a loss to Northview (Ala.). Tuesday's action featured a slow start and an early 16-4 deficit to Daleville before Graceville fought back to tie it up in regulation and go on to win in overtime.
The Tigers next took on the Wildcats and won comfortably after leading by as much as 20 points, but they didn't get a third game due to a schedule change resulting from a late arrival by SouthWalton.
It wasn't as much work as the Tigers wanted, but coach Matt Anderson said he was pretty satisfied with what his crew got done in two games.
"We played pretty well. We're starting to show some signs of being a pretty good basketball team, especially considering that we're playing without two potential starters in AJ (Davis) and (Jared) Padgett," the coach said. "We're
playing about nine guys that are all givmg us some good minutes, so that's pretty encouraging."'

Trademark board rules against Redskins name
The Associated Press
WASHINGTON - The U.S, Patent Office ruled Wednesday that the Washington Redskins nickname is "disparaging of Native Americans" and that the team's federal trademarks for the name must be canceled.
The 2-1 ruling comes after a campaign to change the name gained momentum over the past year. The team doesn't immediately lose trademark protection and is allowed to retain it during an appeal, which is likely.
Redskins owner Dan Snyder has refused to change the team's name, citing tradition, but there has been growing pressure including statements in recent months from President Barack Obama, lawmakers of both parties and civil rights. groups.
The decision means that the team can continue to use the Redskins name, but it would lose a significant portion of its ability to protect the financial interests connected to its use. If others printed the name on sweatshirts, apparel, or other team material, it becomes more difficult to go after groups who use it without permission.
The case involves six registered trade-

' ter the courts decided that the plaintiffs The decision by the Trademark Trial should have filed their complaint soon and.Appeal Board is'similar to one it is- after the Redskins registered their nick-
name in 1967.
The new case was launched in 2006 by a younger group of Native Americans, and was heard by the board in March of last year.
The group argued that the Redskins should lose their federal trademark protection based on a law that prohibits registered names that are disparaging, scandalous, contemptuous or disreputable. Suzan Shown Harjo, one of the plaintiffs who testified at last year's hearing, said she was "thrilled and delighted" with the decision. Snyder declined to speak to reporters as he walked off the practice field, but the team said it planned to.release a statement later in the day.
In Washington, lawmakers who have pushed for a name change applauded the decision. In May, half of the Senate wrote letters to the NFL urging the team to change its name.
"Daniel Snyder may be the last person in the world to realize this, but it's just a matter of time until he is forced to do the right thing and change the name," said Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, who has said previously he will not attend home games until the team changes its name.

MIAMI - LeBron James is leaving.
For a family vacation, that is.
The Miami Heat star said that's his first order of business, and during the time away from basketball he'll start the process of moving past this season and looking toward the future.
"I just want to win. That's all that matters to me," James said Tuesday after emerging from the final team meeting, one where coach Erik Spoelstra urged his team take plenty of pride from the season, even though the end result was an NBA Finals loss, to San Antonio. "I haven't even begun to even think about what my future holds or what I have in store. I will sit down with my team at
some point, my family as well. Today definitely wasn't the day. "If my family is happy, then I'm happy and'able to perform at a high level." SIf so, then they've been happy duringhis first four years in Miami: James has been to the NBA Finals all four seasons in which he's played for the Heat, capturing two championships, and no one in the league over that span has logged more minutes, made more field goals or won more games than the four-time MVP. And now he could leave. James, Dwyane Wade and-Chris Bosh can all become free agents, though none have made decisions on whether they'll opt out. They came together amid much fanfare in 2010, and this summer might be similar in many ways for that trio, the Heat and the
NBA as a whole - with all eyes on what they'll do. "I feel more at ease this time," James said, adding that "2010, it was out of control. It was the craziest summer I've ever been a part of. ... I'm definitely in a better place right now even though in 2010 I got put out in the postseason earlier than I expected or didn't accomplish what I wanted to, and I have kind of the same feeling now." James said that at some point, he, Wade and Bosh will gather to talk about their plans.Theyhaveuntil June 29 to inform the Heat whether they will exercise their rights to beconime free agents - moves that; in all three cases would not prohibit them from returning to Miami. Bosh revealed Tulesday that the group will meet with Heat president Pat Riley as well, to get the team's vision for
what next season's roster would look like. "I'm sure Riley has a finite plan moving forward," Bosh said. "I guess it kinds of really starts with him, just listening to him, kind of get his feel for the situation. He'll plug 'em wherever something is needed."
The basketball court was still in place inside Miami's arena on Tuesday, but there will be no game there until next season. Game 6 of the NBA Finals would have been Tuesday night and for the first time since 2011, the Heat were saying goodbyes to one another without the backdrop of a championship parade.
"There's not a whole lot you can say that's going to alleviate some of the pain and frustration that we're all feeling right, now," Spoelstra said.

The Associated Press
PORTO ALEGRE, Brazil
- The Netherlands had to work much harder for victory over the World Cup's lowest-ranked tean than it did against the defending world and European champion. A goalkeeping blunder by Maty Ryan handed substitute Memphis Depay his first international goal and the Netherlands the winner Wednesday after a spirited Australia had brought the Dutch back
down to earth with a bump following their 5-1 thrashing of Spain in their Group B opener.
"In a tournament you can't play every game fantastically from beginning to end," striker Robin van Persie said. Arjen Robben opened the scoring with a break-away goal before Tim Cahill's stunning volley brought the sides level just a minute later. Mile Jedinak then converted a 54th minute penalty and Van Persie equalized with his third
goal of the tournament four minutes after that. Depay's speculative longrange shot beat Ryan in the 68th to give the Dutch a 3-2 victory.
Chile's 2-0 win over Spainlater in the evening was enough to guarantee the Netherlands a spot in the round of 16. The Dutch will play Chile in Sao Paulo on Monday to decide the Group B winner as defending champion Spain made an early exit. It was a tactical change by
coach Louis van Gaal that may have helped turn the game for the Dutch, who gave away the ball too often in the first half under pressure from Australia.
After starting with the same 5-3-2 formationthattore apart Spain, Van Gaal switched to the traditional Dutch system of 4-3-3 at half time - a change forced on him in part by an injury to Bruno Martins Indi and in part to switch the way his players were approaching the match.
Cahill scores wonder goal, then gets carded
The Associated Press
PORTO ALEGRE, Brazil
- Tim Cahill's stunning volley in the 21st minute made it two goals in two games at the World Cup for Australia's talisman. His yellow card just before half time for a cluttering Cahill tackle on a Dutch defender ensured itwas also more than likely his last. Australia lost 3-
2 to the Netherlands, which had opened its campaign with a 5-1 rout of defending champion Spain. Cahill picked up a yellow in Australia's opening 3-1 loss to Chile, and the booking against Netherlands automatically ruled him out of the Socceroos' last group game against Spain. Both Spain and Australia already are out of contention.
The 34-year-old Cahill said he had no regrets about the way he played in his third trip
to football's marquee tournament, adding: "I'm very proud this is my last World Cup - As a nation we have earned the respect of the world today."
He is expected to playin the Asian Cup on home soil next January, but 2018 is probably too far off for the New York Red Bulls star to prolong his international career. Cahill, who played for Millwall and Everton in a long career in the English leagues, has long had the knack of scoring just when his team-
mates needed a goal. He did it against Japan in 2006 in his first World Cup game, and he did it again last week against Chile, becoming part of a select group of international footballers to score in three consecutive World Cups.
On Wednesday, just seconds after Australia fell behind 1-0 down, he ran onto to a looping pass from Ryan McGowan, before blasting home a perfectly-timed volley on his weaker left foot from about 11 yards out.

RIO DE JANEIRO - Frank Larnpard's place in World Cup historywas assured even before arriving in Brazil. As the player whose disallowed goal in South Africa four years ago compelled FIFA to reverse its opposition to goal-line technology, the England midfielder's impact on the World Cup potentially will outshine some of the great scorers.

FORTALEZA, Brazil - Luiz Felipe Scolari and his Brazil squad tried to focus on the positives after a disappointing draw against Mexico in its second World Cup match. Although Brazil couldn't manage to score, the veteran coach and his players believe they sawimprovement from the opening match, and remain on track for a successful home tournament. Brazil was outplayed through parts of the match against Mexico on Tuesday, when it was held to a 0-0 draw in the northeastern city of Fortaleza. Scolari said he thought Brazil played better than in the 3-1 win over Croatia in the opener. He and the players also attributed the draw to a fabulous performance by Mexico goalkeeper Guillermo Ochoa, who made four outstanding saves to keep the match scoreless. "The result wasn't what we wanted, but I'm happy with the improvement that I saw from my team," Scolari said. "The team played better than it did against Croatia, I think it improved about 10 percent from that match. "I was pretty happy with what I saw on the pitch. We have the tendency to think that other teams are not good, but Mexico is good, and they played well just as we did." The players gave a similar line when they left the locker room on Tuesday. "Despite the result, we improved as a team," left back Dani Alves said. "Sometimes the score doesn't reflect how the match was played. It's a difficult tournament and you have to play better match after match and I think that's what happened. We are pleased with our performance." Neymar added: "Of course we wanted the victory, but in reality the draw wasn't a bad result." Brazilian media wasn't so ready to downplay the draw.
"Brazil frustrate fans," read a headline on the website of the O Globo newspaper. The Folha de S. Paulo daily, .Brazil's largest, added: "Brazil plays poorly and stops on Mexico's defense."
Brazil had won 16 of its previous 17 matches coming into Fortaleza. The only time Scolari's team hadn't won was in a 1-0 defeat against Switzerland after last year's Confederations Cup, the warm-up tournament it won. "We created enough chances to win the match but their goalkeeper made the saves," midfielder Oscar said. "At least we didn't lose. Mexico is a good team. We knew that it was going to be difficult."
Brazil's last Group A match is against Cameroon in Brasilia on Monday. The five-time world champion leads the group on goal difference. Croatia and Cameroon were playing their second matches on Wednesday after opening losses.

Dear Annie: I believe my husband is having an emotional affair with his employee "Tina." All the signs are there. My husband's office phone accidentally dialed me while he was talking with Tina at work, and I overheard their conversation. He called her terms of love. I started snooping and discovered that they text each other hundreds of times a month. He lets her know when I'm away from the house so she can call him directly. Tina is the first person he calls on his way to work and the last person he calls on his way home. It used to be me.
We've been married for 18 months, but we are not kids. We are in our 50s. I'm stunned by .his behavior. When I confronted him, he said he isn't doing anything wrong because nothing physical has happened between them. Since then, he's become more secretive and won't discuss it at all.
I am so saddened by this. He is giving
to Tina a part of him that is meant for me, his wife. I am going to therapy, and that helps. But I have reached the point where I no longer have the feelings of love for my husband that I used to. I'm upset with him all of the time. Tell your readers that an emotional affair is just as damaging as a physical one - maybe more so.
- HEART OF STONE Dear Heart: Some partners mistakenly believe that if there is no sex, there is no affair. But giving your emotions, your heart, your innermost thoughts to someone other than your spouse is also cheating. It creates a bond with a third party, allowing that person into your marriage. We are glad you are getting counseling, but if your husband does not understand the damage he is doing and makes no effort to change it, we worry that your marriage will not survive. (You also might point out that he is putting his career in jeopardy by becoming involved with a subordinate.)
Willie Tyler, a ventriloquist, comedian and actor, said, "The reason lightning doesn't strike twice in the same place is that the same place isn't there the second time."
How does this segue into a bridge deal? With difficulty! South is in four hearts. West leads the diamond ace. What ought to happen after that? North responded with the Jacoby Forcing Raise, showing four or more hearts, game-forcing values and, usually, no singleton or void (because with a short suit, North would have made a splinter bid). South rebid four hearts to indicate a minimum opening bid with no singleton or void.
At 999 tables out of 1,000, East would signal with his diamond nine under partner's ace, starting a high-low with a doubleton. West would then cash the diamond king and give his partner a diamond ruff. Whatever East does next, though, South wins, draws trumps and claims 10 tricks: one spade, five hearts and four clubs. However, East should realize that he does not need a ruff to gain a trump trick. So he should not advertise his doubleton. Instead, he should play his diamond four at trick one.
Then the spotlight falls on West. If East
has just played a singleton, it would probably be right to continue diamonds. But if South has four diamonds, he would have exactly 2-5-4-2 distribution, which is unlikely. Instead, West should think about shifting. And given the dummy, a spade looks better than a club. Note that this is the only way to defeat the contract, the defenders then taking one spade, one heart and two diamonds.
