A 29-year-old man has been arrested following an attempted break-in on Sapp Road, according to a statement from the Jackson County Sheriff's Office. Kevin Michael Larrubia is charged with attempted burglary of an occupied structure, burglary of a conveyance, criminal mischief, aggravated stalk-
Shortlyaftermidnight on Tuesday, deputies responded to a reported burglary in progress at Sapp Road residence. At the scene, they were told that a suspect Larrubia had tried
a couch was pushed against the door that kept him out. The statement went on to say that Larrubia then went to the back of the house, broke' out a window and then tried to kick in the back door. When he broke the rear window, police saythe suspect cut himself and left blood evidence at the scene. They were
against a male subject who was inside.
Larrubia is said to have removed a credit card from the victim's vehicle; the card found on him after his arrest. The Jackson Correctional Institution K-9 team responded to the scene to help locate Larrubia. A track led law enforcement
into a swamp.
The JCSO statement says the Apalachee Correctional Institution K-9 team also assisted.with the search.
After he was found, Larrubia was arrested and transported to the Jackson Correctional Facility to await his first appearance in court.

BY ANGIE COOK
MARIANNA - City commissioners are looking for more information before committing hundreds of thousands of dollars to a proposed museum project that would repurpose a city owned downtown property.
special meeting, before the board was a recently awarded $400,000 grant from the state Division of Cultural Affairs, Kimbrough which is tied to the
historic First National Bank building, located near the intersection of Caledonia and Lafayette streets, being repurposed as a museum or multi-use cultural facility. At issue was the grant's required dollar-for-dollar match and from where in the city budget another $400,000 might be found.
But not every penny would need to come from city coffers. The bulk of the money, Commissioner Paul Donofro Jr. suggested, could be found by delaying a planned project to move utilities off Lafayette Street/U.S. Highway 90 (between Nolan Street and the Chipola River Bridge) and redirecting some $250,000 toward the museum project.
The DCA grant also allows for 25 percent ($100,000) of the city's required match to.come from in-kind contributions, thoughCity Manager Jim Dean hesitated to estimate the City's potential in-kind funding at $20,000 to $30,000. Also available for the project, in addition to the $400,000 DCA grant, is $100,000 in the form of two smaller grants - $50,000 each, from state Division of Historical Resources, one an historic preservation grant, with a $5,000 match, the other an acquisition and/or
preservation of-historic properties grant, with no match.. Other potential 'sources for matching funds for ihe museum project include the Marianna Arts Festival and Tourist Development Council.
In fact, Charlotte Brunner, director of Main Street Marianna, who applied for the state grant, was busy Tuesday afternoon preparing a presentation for this week's TDC meeting, to formally request funding from that organization. Brunner told the boardat Monday's meeting that she had applied for the grant several years in a row, but it was advocacy from Rep. Marti Coley, R-Marianna, that helped land the funding opportunity this year.
Coley, reached by phone Tuesday, said she was glad to advocate for'* any municipality in District 5 that

Xs is the case in many cities and towns across America, Jackson County has its share of ileal drug operations. As of last week, there's one fewer. Members of the Jackson County Drug Task Force conducted raids at six addresses along Bromas Lane near Marianna, and what they found was eye-opening: a large-scale, sophisticated marijuana cultivation operation and supply chain, with the illegal product from flowering plant stage to gallon-sized bags of marijuana ready for sale. Six men were arrested on drug charges, and are considered innocent until convicted. But that's a lot of marijuana that won't be on the streets of our community.
Officials with the Gulf Coast Children's Advocacy Center broke ground on a new facility on U.S. 90 in Marianna. The new location will allow advocates to put all elements of child-abuse investigation under one roof. Widespread fundraising efforts made it possible, particularly from country music star Jason Aldean and Tombo Martin, co-owner of Buck Commander. Their generosity is well-appreciated.
Many of Jackson County's most vulnerable residents can feel a bit more secure if they've taken advantage of the Jackson County Emergency Management Agency's offer of a free weather radio. The agency has handed out radios several times in recent months, and gave away about 150 earlier this week. Its goal is to put 4,000 free weather radios in the homes of those with special needs, senior citizens or those who live in mobile or modular homes.
FAA must make
its top pnonty
he news has been scarier than usual: Iraq is on the
boil, which has serious implications for U.S. security, random and mass-shooting tragedies seem to be coming at us weekly.
Add to these the fact that air-traffic controllers are too sleepy, and anyone who boards a plane should be very afraid. The controllers are suffering from chronic fatigue while on the job - the task of keeping the millions of people who fly from here to there safe in the air. It remains a major threat to the safety of the flying public that the Federal Aviation Administration must address immediately.
It's not as if the FAA had no idea that too many of its 15,000 air-traffic controllers are at risk of nodding off or sluggish thinking. Three years ago, it was disclosed that there were controllers who were falling asleep in front of their screens, which forced the FAA to take a closer look at work scheduling, which has contributed to the problem.
This latest disclosure is a result of a report, mandated by Congress, from the National Research Council. At issue, short-term, is the policy that allows controllers to work five eight-hour shifts over four consecutive days
-the last one being a midnight shift. Controllers love it because they get 80 hours - the equivalent of two traditional work weeks - off before they have to return to work. However, the report says that this scheduling likely results in "severely reduced cognitive performance" during the midnight shift because of fatigue.
The schedule might be popular, but it's a dangerous one. The FAA should sit down with the National Air Traffic Controllers Association and develop scheduling that reduces fatigue on the job and increases flight safety. To its credit, the FAA imposed a fatigue risk management program after several controllers were caught sleeping on the job a few years ago. Cutbacks, however, have thwarted the program's effectiveness. This is not encouraging news. Neither is what's roaring down the pike, coming straight at helpless plane passengers and crew members at the mercy of air-traffic controllers who might -or might not -be at the top of their game. The FAA is confronting a deluge of retirements. Controllers are required to retire when they turn 56. The agency will have to replace about two-thirds of this workforce
- 10,000 controllers - during the next 10 years. In order to fill the ranks, the FAA has abandoned its hiring program, in place for almost 25 years, of recruiting controllers from among.military veterans who have aviation experience and from FAA-accredited colleges and universities.
It's a controversial move that rightly raises concerns about safety. It takes years to properly train air traffic controllers. It is imperative that the FAA -along with Secretary of Transportation Anthony Foxx -make a
persuasive case that replacing recruits who have a leg up in their knowledge of aviation with neophytes starting from scratch will not further imperil people who fly. ,The report makes several recommendations, including that the FAA analyze accident and incident reports and voluntary reports by controllers to identify specific 'links between staffing and safety; involve controllers in staffing decisions; and ensure sufficient staffing as its modernization initiative proceeds. Next Generation Transportation System will shift from ground-based radar to a satellite system. The agency must follow through.
Flying shouldn't be a crap shoot because someone was asleep at the switch.

The, morphing of Mississippi
o not for a minute think that
Tuesday's Senate runoff in
Mississippi was about Thad Cochran.
Cochran, an innocuous man
who sits at the desk once occupied by Jefferson Davis, has been on Capitol Hill for 41 years, and the most remarkable thing about him is that a Mississippi Republican has been in the Senate for six terms. A half-century ago, Republicans were rarely sighted in Mississippi and the state was. convulsed in bitter racial turmoil.
This week voters in Mississippi would decide whether to return Cochran to the Senate - if he wins the Republican nomination, he's a good bet in the general election in November- or to -make him another incumbent toppled by a tea party insurgency.
The supporters of state Sen. Chris McDaniel, who earned a runoff with Cochran after neither man won a majority in the primary, are trying to make an issue of what thielongtime senator represents: longevity, the status quo, insider maneuvers, the art of the deal, politics as usual, pork-barrel favors, mushy conservatism.
Back in the days when Barry Goldwater was the leading conservative, Mississippi was a one-party state. There were a handful of Repubhcans, but so few you almost knew all their names, principallyWirt Adams YergerJr., who founded the Magnolia State's GOP affiliate at the late date of 1956, and Clarke Reed, the highest-profile Mississippi Republican operative of his time who, ,along with only 112,965 other lonely Mississippi souls, voted for Dwight Eisenhower in 1952. The man who was perhaps the greatest war hero in American history won less than 40 percent of the vote in a militaryoriented state only seven years after V-E Day.
A half-century ago, James 0. Eastland and John C. Stennis, regarded
as populist folk heroes but in fact ardent early opponents of integration, occupied the state's two Senate seats. Both were Democrats of the old school, and eventually both were committee chairmen, too. All five members of the House in those days were Democrats. (One, however, lost re-election to a Republican that November.) "That the representation of the South is largely reactionary is something we all know," John Gunther wrote in "Inside U.S.A.," his classic 1947 survey of the country, "but it is not so commonly known that quite. aside from its reactionary quality, this representation is also very powerful - so much so that it may fairly be said that the Southern block of Tdry Democrats is the chief single factor in the United States militating against the progress of the nation as awhole."
A generation ago, the split was between those holding firm to the Democratic creed (a diminishing group) and those moving to a Republican Party with a candidate (Goldwater, 1964) whose principal appeal was that he wasn't Lyndon Johnson, the Texas apostate who embraced civil rights; with a president (Richard Nixon, 1968) who ran on an explicit Southern strategy; and with a nominee (Ronald Reagan, 1980) who used the freighted phrase "states' rights" campaigning in Neshoba County. Now the split is materially different, and exists in several dimensions.
One is the division between the Republican old guard in the state
- the very phrase would have seemed ludicrous 50 years ago
- and the new, muscular conservatives aligned with the tea party movement. Another is the division between newcomers and old-timers, as Mississippi, like other Southern states, becomes transformed by outsiders who don't comprehend that the Republican officeholders there once were rebels themselves - against a political establishment that itself once seemed impregnable.
Thus, what demographers call "generational replacement" is perhaps the most potent cultural and political force in modern Mississippi - and it is perhaps more potent there than anywhere else in the nation.
The result is political instability in a state whose entire modern history has been about the struggle for stability.
The key to understanding the Mississippi showdown fs recognizing that the movement from Democratic Mississippi to Republican Mississippi wasn't really a:revolution after all. It was a movement to preserve the status quo. The new Republicans offered a worldview in important ways congruent with that of the old Democrats - but completely divergent from that offered by the new Democrats, who included tens of thousands of blacks, the largest percentage of any state's population, eligible to cast ballots because of LBI's Voting Rights Act. So this week's primary wasn't about Thad Cochran. It was about Mississippi and about the GOP and about change - and about the change going on in the Mississippi Republican Party. At the moment, it's the most interesting political race in the most interesting region of the most interesting political democracy.

Age comes in on little crow's feet
ue came in complaining
about her aching back and
about being tired after spending a hot day weeding the garden. I said, "Well, stop acting like you're 50." I'm pretty sure we had something I don't like for dinner that night, or at least I did. I didn'i mean it as an insult; it's just that getting older sneaks up on you. Some days you wonder, why can't I read more than a few pages of a book at night without falling asleep? I used to be able to read for hours at a time. "I'm old" wasn't my first thought. When you ask someone to twist off the cap on ajar of salsa for you, "I'm old" isn't your first thought. When people start talking about spending the winter in Florida, "I'll never do that, it's for old people" won't be your first thought.
It's not as if Sue and I are old old, but we both wish we were only 50 again - back when we could get out of a chair after watching an hour of TV without feeling like someone had rabbit-punched us in the kidneys. Back when people passing us on the freeway didn't flash us rude hand gestures for going so slow. Back when we only had one doctor, and we knew his name and what we were paying him for. Now we get bills from doctors we've never heard of for tests we don't remember taking.., "Was that the one where they
The Village Idiot
stuck that thing down my throat, or the one where they stuck that thing up the other end?" "No," Sue says, "that was last month. This is the bill forthe MRI on your knee."
"That doesn't seem as expensive as. we thought."
"This is just the bill for the guy who took the results from the technician, walked them down the hall and handed them to the doctor. We haven't gotten the real bills yet." And we're some of the lucky ones. Neither of us are on chemo; we can still walk, we have our own teeth and the kids aren't asking us who's going to get Grandma's dishes when we croak. Yet. The surprise is how getting old sneaks up on you. The first time you get a free copy of the AARP magazine in the mail, your first reaction is to hide it from your friends and family. "I'm not old," you think. "I'm only 50! Why are they sending this to me? There must be some mistake." It takes about seven years before you stop
tossing it automatically into the garbage. At some point, you start reading every issue word for word. You look at the famous people on the cover and realize that they are your age. And they don't look so bad. Of course they don't look bad - they have personal trainers and personal chefs and they're wearing makeup and a $500-anhour stylist has just fluffed their hair.
Remember, when anybody on TV says that 50 is the new 30, or that 60 is the new 40, or that 70 is the new 50, they aren't talking about you. They're talking about Cher. She's 68 and looks great - but
-that's her job! Think how fantastic you would you look if you got paid to spend eight hours a day exercising, stretching, tweezing, dieting and shopping. That's not even mentioning nips and tucks, capped teeth and hair weaves.
Madonna's 55. Harrison Ford is 71. Sean Connery is 83. So that's four people - out of 6 billion
- who don't look their age. And for all we know, they all need help opening a new jar of mayonnaise when they're at home.
I'm not relishing the prospect of becoming more and more feeble, but the trick is not to pretend to be young. The trick is learning how to be old.

Make buying your next car stress-free
From Consumer Reports
When buying a car, it turns out you can skip the negotiating and still avoid overpaying, according to ShopSmart, the shopping magazine from the publisher of Consumer Reports. These tips will ï¿½ help you get in and out stress-free:
) Pick a model. The first step is to decide which car you're really! interested in buying, down to the model, trim line and color. Visit dealers to test-drive and do a walk-around of any you're seriously considering. But make it clear to sales reps that you won't be buying that day. That will help ease any sales pressure.
)) Get preapproved. Shop around for a loan with the best interest rate and terms before going to the dealership to buy. Check local and online banks or your credit union. Getting preapproved lets you avoid having to make pressure-packed decisions in the showroom. And if the dealer can offer you better financing, you can still go for it.
Websites such as LendingTree and E-Loan take your info, send it out to lenders and come back with offers. Once you're approved, the lender sends you a blank check that's good for any amount up to the loan limit and valid for some limited period, such as 45 days.
) Check for incentives. ,Go to automaker websites to see whether they are offering sales incentives such as cash rebates or low-interest- financing on any models you're considering. ShopSmart notes that those can save you hundreds. or even thousands of dollars. )) Make dealers compete.
Call or email multiple dealers in your area, or request a quote through their websites. Tell them the exact car you want and ask for their lowest outthe-door price, including
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
When you're ready to buy a new car it pays to shop around and do your homework.
sales tax and any fees. Be sure to let them know that you are shopping around and you will buy from the dealer with the lowest price. Double-check that the quotes are apples to apples and that they include any available incen"tives. But don't succumb to a sales rep's request that you rush down there in person to get their lowest price.
You can also get online quotes through automaker websites or at sites such as AutoTrader.com, Cars. com, CarsDirect, TrueCar and others. Consumer Reports subscribers can use the website's Build & Buy car-buying service to get dealer pricing and guaranteed savings'in most states from local dealers who are dedicated, to' high customer satisfaction. The more quotes you get, the better. And you can always use a lower quote as leverage to negotiate with other dealers by recontacting -them and asking whether they can meet or beat it.
)) Cash in on your tradein. If you're trading in your current car, be aware that you won't get as much for it as you would if you sold it yourself. But trade-ins are much quicker and less of a
hassle. You can get a good idea of your car's trade-in value on Edmunds (edmunds.com), Kelley Blue Book (kbb.com) or the National Automobile Dealers Association (nada.org). )) Prepare for pick-up.
You'll need to go to the dealer to close the deal, but don't leavehome without a guaranteed written quote for the new car, a preapproved loan and an estimate of your trade-in's value. And don't let the sales rep try to roll everything into one monthly payment. That leaves room for manipulation of the, numbers. Also be sure to finalize the new car transaction before discussing the trade-in. The dealer's staff will probably try to sell you extras, such as undercoating, fabric and paint sealants and VIN etching, in which the ,vehicle's ID
number is etched into the windows to deter theft. Don't take the bait! Dealers also may try to sell you a service contract or an extended warranty. But if you'Ve picked a reliable car, you're likely to spend more for the warranty than you'll save in repair costs.

DCF urges parents, caregivers to learn CPR for emergencies
The Department of Children and Families launched the second phase of its Water Safety Campaign Tuesday. Since the start of this year, 40 alleged child drownings have been called into the Florida Abuse Hotline, according to the agency. The second phase of the Water Safety Campaignstresses the importance of CPR training for adults and age appropriate children to help prevent drowning deaths. Drowning is among the leading causes of death of children in Florida ages 1-4.
When a child stops breathing, there is a small window of time in which resuscitation may occur. A water watcher who knows CPR can act quickly in an emergency and give EMTs
a better chance to save a life. The campaign directs parents and caregivers to CPR classes and resources from the YMCA, Red Cross and AHA.
"Keeping Florida's children safe around water means that adults watch ,them closely, ensure appropriate barriers around water, and know CPR," said State Surgeon General and'Secretary of Health Dr. John Armstrong. "I encourage all families to take these steps for the health and safety of all children in Florida."
For more information on drowning prevention and statistics visit www. waterprooffl.com.
To learn more about CPR or find a CPR certification course, visit www. myflfamilies.com/watersafety or call 2-1-1 to learn about resources in your local area.

Two illed, seven wounded in Miami shooting
The Associated Press
MIAMI - Two people were killed .and seven others were wounded in a shooting early Tuesday in the Miami neighborhood of Liberty City that has been plagued by violence, police said.
One victim was pronounced dead at the scene and the others who were shot or injured were taken to a nearby trauma center, where the second victim died.
.At the crime scene, the sidewalk was littered with dozens of spent shell casings marked by green police cones and shattered glass by mid-morning Tuesday and people said they were afraid to talk about the shooting. Some 50 to 60 shots were fired, police spokeswoman Frederica Burden had said.
A crying woman was comforted by others. "My baby ain't deserved this. They treated him like a dog," she yelled repeatedly. The deceased were identified as Kevin Richardson, 29, and Nakeri Jackson, 26. "I'm not sure how it occurred," Burden said. "We're investigating it now. I don't know if they were all outside standing, some in a car, some not in a car. I don't

know that yet."
One resident, Jose Hernandez, said gun violence is an almost daily occurrence in the area. "I have friends who have been killed," Hernandez said. "This violence has to change."
Last April in Liberty City, a historically low-income neighborhood, a gunman opened fire into a crowd outside a corner store killing a woman and wounding two men.
Miami City Manager Daniel
Alfonso said at the scene that city officials, are going to look at their strategy against crime. "We are going to work with our law enforcement partners to make it better," he said.
Although a police official said
six more officers and a canine unit had been assigned to the neighborhood, a news release from the Fraternal Order of Police said the shooting was a consequence of a lack of manpower and resources.
"We have reached a tipping point in the district where the criminal element has no fear of our police officers and are beginning to act with impunity," said the news release signed by Miami police Sgt. Javier Ortiz, who is president of the city's FOP lodge, according to its website.
The statement urged police not to respond to calls that require two officers alone. "Folks, people are getting killed in groups three blocks outside of our police station. If this isn't a wakeup call to our stakeholders, I don't know what is," said Ortiz.
The police union described the shooting as a gangland style assault.
A Miami's Jackson Memorial Hospital spokeswoman said she couldn't release information, including how many people were brought there) She also said the patients had chosen not to release information about their medical conditions.

Glow sticks illuminate village
remnants in downtown Miami
The Associated Press
MIAMI - The remnants of a prehistoric Native American village glowed faintly in the twilight Monday evening, history almost lost in the glare of downtown high-rises and the gleam of South Beach across the bay. Archaeologist Bob Carr led a handful of students in placing 400 glow sticks in the postholes that form one of roughly 10 circular features in a vacant lot spanning half a city block destined to become a hotel and entertainment complex.
The site is thought to be one of the largest and earliest examples of urban
planning ever uncovered in North America. Archaeologists plan to repeat the low-tech project throughout the site as they finish field work over the next two months to illuminate the remnants of a Tequesta village before construction covers everything and their research moves off site. In daylight, a jumble of color-coded PVC pipes mark small postholes dug as early as 500 BC into soft limestone. The glow sticks will help define which holes were dug for circular hut-like buildings and which ones are included in a grid for what might have been elevated walk-
Supreme Court will AG seeks to join case take up evidence case and defend ban
TALLAHASSEE -A divided Florida Supreme Court says it will settle a dispute over secret evidence used at a trial to decide whether legislators broke the law when drawing up new political maps. In a 5-2 decision, the court on Thesday said it will hear an appeal over whether evidence taken from a Gainesville political consulting firm should have been used in a redistricting trial. The trial dealing with maps for Congress ended this month.
TALLAHASSEE - Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi is seeking to defend the state's ban on gay marriage in two lawsuits. Bondi's office on Tesday filed motions to intervene in lawsuits that had been filed by gay couples in Miami-Dade and Monroe circuit courts. Allen Wmsor, the state's solicitor general, states in the motions that the case is a challenge to the 2008 constitutional amendment that banned gay marriage.

ways connecting the structures over the tidal areas where the Miami River met Biscayne Bay before the city's development. "The prehistoric Tequesta had a complex plan for elevated structures," Carr said. "This wasn't just a couple of huts on the shoreline."
The circle illuminated Monday will be covered as early as Tuesday with a tarp to protect it from construction that's scheduled for completion in 2016. Miami's commissioners in March approved a plan to preserve some of the archaeological finds in glass enclosures on the property.
Police: Teen killed grandmother, drove body around neighborhood

LUTZ - A teenager killed his grandmother in a bloody struggle inside her home at a nudist community and then drove around with her body in a minivan for nearly five hours, authorities said.
Brandon Machetto, 18, had been living with hisgrandmother, Z4-yearold Sylvia Schmitt, for the past several weeks and they apparently fought frequently, said Pasco County sheriff's spokeswoman Melanie Snow.
A neighbor called authorities after seeing Machetto drag a wrapped bag with feet dangling out into his grandmother's minivan early Monday, police said.
Machetto drove around with his grandmother's body in the back and when deputies tried to pull him over, he refused, police said. He eventually drove back to the Paradise Lakes community

Cochran, Rangel struggle for political survival
The Associated Press
WASHINGTON - Veteran lawmakers in peril, Republican Sen. Thad Cochran of Mississippi and Democratic Rep. Charles Rangel of New York struggled against younger challengers on Tuesday, hoping their seniority and Washington clout could win over voters at home in elections churned by race.
In a last-ditch effort, six-term Sen. Cochran reached out to traditionally Democratic voters
- blacks and union members - in his underdog candidacy against tea party-backed state Sen. Chris McDaniel in a GOP primary runoff. Voters who cast ballots in the June 3 Democratic primary were barred from participating. The Mississippi contest that threatened to cast aside the 76-year-old Cochran was the marquee race on a busy June primary day that included New York, Oklahoma, Colorado, Maryland and Utah.
Also, voters in a solidly Republican district on Florida's Gulf Coast were choosing a replacement for former Rep. Trey Radel, who resigned in January after pleading guilty to cocaine possession. In New York's Harlem and upper Manhattan, the 84-year-old Rangel, a 22-term congressman and the third-most-senior member of the House, faced a rematch against state Sen. Adriano Espaillat, bidding to become the firstDominican-American member of Congress. Rangel, one of the founders of the Congressional Black Caucus, drew criticism last month when he dismissed the 59-year-old Espaillat as a candidate whose only accomplishment was to be a Dominican in a majority Latino district.
Two years ago, Rangel prevailed in the primary
by fewer than 1,100 votes.
Despite Congress' abysmal public approval ratings, incumbents have largely prevailed midway through the primary season - with two notable exceptions.
Little-known college professor Dave Brat knocked out House Majority Leader Eric Cantor in Virginia's Republican primary this month, and Republican Rep. Ralph Hall, 91, lost in a Texas runoff to a younger Republican.
McDaniel declared as he voted Tuesday, "We are here, we're going to fight for our belief system no matter what, and we're going to reclaim Washington, D.C., one face at a time."
Cochran and his allies, including former Gov. Haley Barbour, highlighted his decades on the Appropriations Committee and his work directing billions in federal dollars to his home state, one of the poorest in the nation.
That resonated with Jeanette Tibbetts, a 73-yearold retiree.
"I'm a ninth-generation Mississippian.... How can you live in south Mississippi and not see Thad's evidence?" asked Tibbetts, who voted in Hattiesburg on Tuesday.
Stanley D. Johnson, 55, of Byram, a family and marriage counselor who served 25 years in the Air Force, said he voted for Cochran "because he's not a tea party member."
"They don't appear to be very inclusive of minorities," said Johnson, who is black and described himself as politically conservative. The Cochran appeal to non-Republicans infuriated McDaniel and prompted tea partyers as well as the NAACP and the Justice Department
- to keep tabs on who was voting in Mississippi. State officials also were observing the voting. Officials said 'more ab-

Washington prepares for marijuana sales
The Associated Press
- As the state prepares to issue the first licenses 'for marijuana retail stores, Gov. Jay Inslee and other state leaders are announcing steps the state is taking to keep pot-out of the hands of minors, including making sure that marijuana-related labels aren't
geared toward kids. During Tuesday's news conference, officials with the state Liquor Contr6l Board - which has been overseeing the implementation of the state's recreational marijuana law
- said that they are likely to adopt emergency rules Wednesday detailing new labeling and packaging requirements for edible
marijuana to minimize the appeal to children. Astatewide radio and online campaignlaunched by the Department of Health addresses the health risks of using marijuana. The Liquor Control Board will issue the first retail licenses on July 7, and the stores that are ready can open the next day.

old memories with longknown friends, they gather every third Wednesday at their clubhouse on Highway 2. They bring food, they play bingo or other games. They eat, they talk, they laugh and reconnect by catching up on new developments in their lives or the lives of their loved ones. And sometimes, their conversations lead to new information about an old friend.
For instance, last Wednesday 91-year-old Elaine Noblin was back after a long absence from the meetings because of her caregiver duties with family members. She talked that day about helping her little brother in his quest to learn how to play guitar. None in the group that day had heard the story before. Noblin said that when they were both very young, she would drive around on country roads very, very slowly while he sat on the hood of the big family car and learned to strum and chord. Trip by trip and mile by mile, he became an accomplished musician.
Noblin also talked a little about her days as a seamstress in a sewing factory, where she knew how to run everyone of the industrial machines. She worked there 30 years, throughout most of her long marriage. That happy union started when she was 14 years old. Some others in the group worked at sewing factories, too, and could relate to her memories of long but productive and fulfilling workdays that helped put food on the table for her family of four children.

Brunner concurred that the timing of the DCA grant made forgoing the

Among the members of the group, there's a wealth of knowledge, too, about how to put up vegetables and preserves for the winter. It's a storehouse of know-how that any visitor can open with the simplest of keys; just asking nicely will unlock the door. The meetings are informal, except for the business report given to keep members up to date on, their modest treasury. It's mostly funded through rentals of the clubhouse, which was built out many years ago from an original foundation owned by the Lion's Club in its earliest days. Never completed as an enclosed structure by that group, the foundation was deeded to the Malone J.O.Y Club years ago when the Lion's Club members aged out and disbanded their group.

Despite the strong showing of advocates in the room, some commissioners felt details about the planned museum were few and that general public's opinion of the project was still unknown, and looked to hear from constituents, before committing to such an expensive endeavor.

Right now, Brunner said the city is awaiting the grant contract from the state, which is expected in a few weeks.
Once received, commissioners have 30 days to execute the document. They have until then to decide how much of the city's money, if any, they're ready to commit to match the available grant dollars.
Judge: No-fly list-violates constitutional rights
The Associated Press
PORTLAND, Ore. -The U.S. government offers no adequate method for people to challenge their placement on its no-fly list, a federal judge ruled Tuesday in a case involving 13 Muslims who believe they're on the list. U.S. District Court Judge Anna Brown found people lack a meaningful way to challenge their placement on the list, and the 13 people who sued the government have been unconstitutionally deprived of their right to fly.
"This should serve as wakeup call to the government," said American Civil Liberties Union attorneyHina Shamsi. "This decision also benefits other people wrongly stuck on the no-fly list because it affords them (an opportunity to challenge) a Kafkaesque bureaucracy."
U.S. Justice Department spokeswoman Dena Iverson said gov-
ernment attorneys were reviewing the decision.
Thirteen people challenged their placement on the list in 2010, including four military veterans. Initially, Brown said she couldn't rule on thecase. In 2012, the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals disagreed and sent the case back to her. Brown ruled in August that the 13 people challenging their presence on the list had a constitutional right to travel and, on Tuesday, found the government violated that right. "For many" Brown wrote in Tesday's decision, "international travel is a necessary aspect of liberties sacred to members of a free society." The judge saidplacement on the no-fly list turns routine travel into an "odyssey," and some of those on the listhave been subjected to detention and interrogation by foreign authorities. The no-fly list, a well-protected government secret, decides who is
barred from flying at U.S. airports, and is shared with ship captains and 22 other countries. The FBI has said the list requires secrecy to protect sensitive investigations and to avoid giving terrorists clues for avoiding detection. The plaintiffs argued being on the list harms their reputations. Several who filed suit said they have been surrounded at airport security areas, detained and interrogated.
Brown expressed skepticism at the government's arguments in several court hearings in2013 and earlier this year. U.S. government attorneys cautioned the judge not to engage in "policymaking" were she to rule against them. The ruling shows Brown heeded that caution. She did not create a new procedure for those on' the list to challenge their placement. Instead, Brown said the Department of Homeland Security needs to find a way to disclose to those
I Co meVisit us ,at
on the list the unclassified information used to place them there. Since much of what is used for placement is classified, Brown said the government should provide people on the list with the nature and extent of the classified information, the type of threat they pose to national security, and the ways in which they can respond to the charges. Her suggestions for an overhaul of the systemhewed closely to those prescribed by the 9th Circuit in a separate case involving an Islamic charity. The process "does not provide a meaningful mechanism for travelers who have been denied boarding to correct erroneous information in the government's terrorism databases," Brown ruled. In January, a California woman successfully challenged her placement on the list, but the ruling did not address the broader constitutional implications.

Marianna wins big, makes return trip to state
KRISTIE CLOUD / FLORIDAN
Amari Brown pitches for the Marianna Ozone All-Star team Monday night at the MERE in Marianna.
BY DUSTIN KENT
The Marianna Angels Al-Stars made it back-to-back district titles by completing a dominant run through the tournament with an 11-1 win over Franklin County on Monday night at Optimist Park. With the win, the Marianna AllStars will move on to the state tournament starting July 11 in Okeechobee where they'll try to make it two state titles in a row and make another trip to the Dixie Angels World Series' in North Myrtle Beach, S.C.
"We're very proud of the girls," Marianna coach Jim Williams said. "We've had some of these girls before, coach David Castleberry and myself. We've coached these girls from a young age from 8U up to IOU, so we've been with these girls for quite a while. We're proud of
them and they played with a lot of heart.
"We try to teach them that they're as good as anybody on the field as long as play with their heart and give it all they've got, and if they do that, then win or lose, they nothing, to be ashamed of. That's the way our girls play, with a lot of heart." Marianna went 4-0 in the tournament, starting out with a 3-0 .win over Wewahitchka on Friday night before coming back to win twice Saturday against Franklin County 15-0 and Sneads 14-2 to advance to Monday's title game. Franklin County advanced out of the losers' bracket to get another shot at Marianna, but the result was much the same, with the Marianna team scoring 11 runs on eight hits and seven walks, including a grand slam by Angel Curry. Ashlyn Wierman started the game and went two innings, with Amari
Brown pitching two innings of relief and the duo combining to give up just one unearned run on three hits with 13 strikeouts. "Our pitching held up really good in the tournament and the defense played pretty well," Williams said. "We didn't make real good contact with our bats the first night, but after that our girls made good contact throughout the lineup and hit the ball well. The gifs got some walks and had bats come up behind that and hit the ball well. and scored some runs. I was pleased with the effort of the team overall with both defense and hitting." The Marianna All-Stars will now turn their attention to -repeating at state, as four girls return from the team that won the title in 2013. The team will head out, to Okeechobee on July 10 for the opening ceremonies before the start of tournament play July 11.

Crump, Shaw lift Bearcats by Bulldogs
BY DUSTIN KENT
The Bainbridge (Ga.) Bearcats made their final day at the Marianna Summer League a memorable one with a pair* of quality wins, beating Seminole County (Ga.) 46-37 and Marianna 75-58.
Tyree Crump scored 32 points to lead the Bearcats against Marianna, with Trevon Shaw adding 20 points. Crump made six of his seven three-pointers in the second half, with Bainbridge making 11 of his 12 triples as a team in the final 20 minutes. The first half of the first half featured mostly young players for both the Bulldogs and Bearcats, with most of the regulars coming in for each squad with Marianna leading 11-10. Byhalftime, Bainbridge had grabbed the lead thanks to a 13-6 spurt with all 13 points coming from Crump and Shaw. Shaquarious Baker sparked the Bulldogs in the second half, converting a pair of three-point
plays and a pair of free throws to put Marianna up 32-30.
But Bainbridge answered with an 18-3 run to take control of the game, with the Bearcats making four triples during the spurt, the final one by Crump making it 54-35 with 10:18 to play. A driving bucket and another triple from rump pushed the lead to 17, with Marianna answering with an 8-0 spurt to get to within single digitsat 56-47. A basket by Shaw was countered by a three from Baker to cut the deficit to eight and a three-point play by Clifford Scott made it 6053 with three minutes remaining.
But Crump came back with consecutive threepointers followed by a pair of buckets from Shaw to make it 70-55 and ice the victory for the Bearcats. Baker finished with 26 points to lead the Bulldogs, who will play their last sufnmer league games Monday against Seminole Ccfanty and Sneads.

The Cottondale Hornets
* wrapped up their summer season Tuesday afternoon in Panama City by splitting a pair of games in the Gulf Coast State Team Camp.
* Cottondale opened with an impressive performance in a 6639 victory over the Mosley Dolphins, with the Hornets leading by as much as 33 points. But the Hornets were brought back down to Earth in the second game by a familiar foe in. the Malone Tigers, who won a rugged defensive battle 33-16. CHS was playing without its top post player-in 6-foot-4 rising sophomore Keyshawn Webb, with Hornets coach Chris Obert saying that fact made it difficult for a team that was already challenged in size and depth.
"We've been out there a couple of times before and played real well in one and struggled in the other and that's kind of to be expected with the youth we have and the lack of size. Sometimes it's hard to put two in a row together," he said. "We're not the deepest or biggest team and playing without (Webb) was a little bit of a struggle, but in the long run I think it's going to help us."
The coach said he was very happy with his team's energy in the win over the Dolphins, and gave the Tigers credit for making things difficult for the Hornets in the second game. "We played real well against Mosley. We really played hard and with a lot of effort and energy and were able to make some plays. The young kids stepped up and played well. I was really proud of them," Obert said.

In this June 14,2014 file photo, Miami Heat forward LeBron James responds to a question during a media availability for the NBA basketball finals in San Antonio. A person familiar with the situation tells The Associated Press that James has decided to opt out of the final two years of his contract with the Heat and become a free agent on July 1. Opting out does not mean James has decided to leave the Heat, said the person, who spoke on condition of anonymity because neither the four-time NBA MVP nor the team had made any public announcement.
LeBron tells Heat he will become free agent
The Associated Press
MIAMI - LeBron James delivered his message loud and clear, without actually saying a word. He's willing to leave Miami, if that's what it will take to win more championships. And what happens next will likely be up to not just the Heat, but Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh as well.
Through his agent, James informed the Heat on Tuesday that he has decided to opt out of the final two years of his contract, a move that means he becomes a free agent on July 1. He will be able to sign with any team, including Miami, and Heat President Pat Riley said he "fully expected" James to take advantage of his early termination option.
"We look forward to sitting down with LeBron and his representatives and talking about our future together," Riley said. The Heat have been preparing
for this for some time. James, Wade and Bosh all got six-year contracts when they teamed up in Miami in July 2010, the last time free agency was accompanied by the sort of frenzy that will envelop the league over the next few weeks. But each of those deals came with options to leave either this summer or in 2015, in part to allow both the players and the team to have financial flexibility.
James who averaged 27.1 points this past season -was owed $42.7 million for the next two seasons, though that seems irrelevant in the sense that he'll be getting plenty of money from the Heat or someone else for years to come. If he stays with Miami, he could sign a deal that would give the team room to maneuver within the structures of the salary cap and luxury-tax threshold.
So could Wade and Bosh, if they choose to opt out as well - and if both do, Miami would potentially
have plenty of cash to spend on roster upgrades. Neither has announced their plans. "No news here yet," Wade said Tuesday.
James stayed silent as well, with agent Rich Paul being the one who informed the Heat of the four-time NBA MVP's plan. But last week, while still dealing with the sting of losing the NBA Finals to San Antonio, James expressed how enticing the idea of flexibility is to him. "Being able to have flexibility as a professional, anyone, that's what we all would like," James said last week. "That's in any sport, for a football player, a baseball player, a basketball player, to have flexibility and be able to control your future or your present. I have a position to be able to do that. ... There's a lot of times that you're not in control of your future as a professional." He's in control now. He turns 30 next season. He might just be entering his prime.
Judge rules trust dear about removing Sterling
The Associated Press
LOS ANGELES -With a $2 billion sale of the Los Angeles Clippers hanging in the balance, a judge suggested Monday that the terms of a family trust are clear enough tb remove Donald Sterling as a trustee and allow his estranged wife to sell the team without his consent.
-At one point, Superior Court Judge Michael Levanas said the Sterlings' trust
agreement is so unambiguous that "I could decide this case in five minutes." At the center of the volatile court battle are reports from three doctors who examined the 80-yearold Sterling and found he shows symptoms of early Alzheimer's disease and dementia. His lawyers argued he should be able to call his own experts at a trial set for July 7. The judge said the trust agreement provides that
if two doctors examined Sterling and found he lacked the capacity to manage his own affairs, he would be removed as a trustee. There is no provision to contest the decision, he said.
"I don't know why you want the court involved at all," he told lawyers. But by the end of a hearing in probate court, Levanas agreed to allow lawyers to submit written arguments and scheduled
a hearing for June 30 ahead of the trial.
Sterling's wife, Shelly, is, trying to sell the team to former Microsoft executive Steve Ballmer, whose offer will expire on Sept. 15. NBA owners are to meetJuly 15 to vote on the deal.
Shelly Sterling struck the potentially record-breaking deal with Balimer after Donald Sterling's racist remarks to a girlfriend were recorded and publicized.

Duncan returns to Spurs todefend title
The Associated Press "
Tim Duncan could have easily gone out on 'top, with his fifth NBA championship trophy under his arm and his health intact just a few months after his 38th birthday. There's just no way. Duncan is having too much fun with his San Antonio Spurs coaches and teammates, and he's playing too well to call it quits now. Duncan has decided to exercise the option on his contract for12014-15 and will return next season, the team announced Monday. Since he was drafted No. 1 overall in 1997,. Duncan leads all NBA players in wins and has won two MVP 'awards and three NBA Finals MVPs. As the Spurs beat the two-time defending champion Miami Heat in the NBA Finals earlier this month, Duncan was asked several times about his future, as he has been for the last five or six years. He was noncommittal, saying he would take some time after the season ended to mull his decision. But after Game 5, most of the Spurs said they expected the group to return and now Duncan has reached his decision, which was first reported by Yahoo! Sports. He will make about $10.3 million next. season in the final year of a twoyear agreement that was drawn up specifically to

Cottondale split games against Brewbaker Tech (Ala.) and East Hall (Ga.) on Monday finishing 1-3 in Panama City and 4-6 overall for the summer.
.allow the Spurs the financial flexibility to surround Duncan with top-shelf talent.
"He feels a responsibility to his teammates," Spurs coach Gregg Popovich said after the team won the championship. "He enjoys them. He wants to hang around as long as he can while he's useful and while he's having an impact on the ,game. He takes care of his body. He works out all summer long with a variety of different things, boxing, swimming. He's very careful about what he puts in his body, so he does everything he can to maintain a level of play.
'At some point," Popovich added, "that will stop."
But not this year.
When Duncan looked around at the Spurs, he saw every reason to come back and try to do just about the only thing the Spurs haven't done during his 17 years there - win back-to-back titles.
In Popovich he has perhaps the best coach in the game, one who has established a culture of teamwork, success and stability that is unparalleled in the league. In Tony Parker and Manu Ginobili, he has two trusted teammate who have been by his side for years, have sacrificed money, fame and statistics right along with him to build the Spurs organization into the envy of the NBA.
The Hornets brought an unusually young team back with just one senior on the roster, but Obert said he believes they made great progress over the course of the summer.
"I was proud of the guys. They did a good job and worked hard this summer," he said. "We've got some flaws like every team has, but this summer we were able to figure out some of our deficiencies. Now, it's just about the next five months figuring out how we can cover them up and be a better team."
Channing Frye opts out of Suns contract
PHOENIX- Channing Frye has opted out of the final year of his contract with the Phoenix Suns and will become an unrestricted free agent on July 1. Frye, at 31 the oldest player on the otherwise young Suns roster last season, will look for a longerterm deal with the Suns with other teams expected to show interest. Frye, who grew up in Phoenix, was one of the leaders of the surprisingly successful Phoenix team. After missing the entire 2012-13 season for treatment of an enlarged heart, Frye came back to start all 82 games last season, averaging 11.1 points and
5.1 rebounds per game. He is best known for his longrange shooting, making 37 percent of his 432 3-point attempts last season. Frye would have made
$6.8 million next season had he not opted out.
Kirilenko returning to
Nets to finish deal
NEWYORK- The Brooklyn Nets say forward Andrei Kirilenkohas opted to remain with the team for the secord year of his contract.
Kirilenko will make $3.3 million next season in the final year of a two-year, $6.5 million deal he signed last summer. The versatile forward from Russia was limited to 45 games by injuries last season, missing 26 early in the season because of back spasms, and averaged 5.0 points.
Jazz coach Snyder
SALT LAKE CITY-New Jazz head coach Quin Snyder has completed his staff.
The team announced Tuesday that Brad Jones, Antonio Lang, Alex Jensen, Mike Wells and Johnnie Bryant have been named as assistant coaches. Jones and Bryant are each returning for their third seasons with the team. Jensen is entering his second season as a member of the Jazz
coaching staff. Lang was most recently a head coach in Japan's National Basketball League. Wells, whose background includes stints on the staffs of the Houston Rockets and San Antonio Spurs, was most recently at the University of Toledo.

No deal to draw, say Germany and US

PORTO SEGURO, Brazil
- There won't be friendly phone calls, there won't be any dirty deals. That's the promise from both sides ahead of Germany's final Group G match against the United States. , A draw on Thursday in Recife would see both teams advance to the knockout stage at the expense of Portugal and Ghana, who play at the same time in Brasilia. Both sides have been answering questions about a possible conspiracy, or as the Germans call it, a "nonaggression pact," and both have sharply rejected any suggestions of a deal. No wonder the questions are being asked, since the Germans were jointly responsible for one of the more shameful episodes in

round for both. It also eliminated Algeria, which had stunned Germany 2-1 in their opener. After that match, FIFA made sure- _that final group matches are played simultaneously, to reduce the possibility of a '
gentlemen's agreement.' Germany and the United States are linked in many ways. Five players on the U.S. team have American fathers and German mothers, with four of them play-' ing in the Bundesliga. U.S. coach Jurgen Klinsmann was a star of the Germany team that won the last of its three World Cup titles-in 1990. He also scored when the two teams last met at a World Cup, a 2-0 victory for Germany at the 1998 tournament in France.
In 2006 at home, Klinsmann guided Germany to a third-place finish as coach, with assistant Joachim Loewwho is now Germany's coach. Berti Vogts, one of Klinsmann's staff, was the coach of Germany when it won its last title, the 1996 European Championship.
Loew and Klinsmann remain good friends, but Loew has said he would not be talking to Klinsmann during the tournament. Klinsmann too has dismissed any collusion. Jozy Altidore to miss US-Germany game SAO PAULO - Jozy Altidore will miss the United States' World Cup game

Suarez did not respond to questions from-print reporters after the game, passing by them with a
smile and a thumbs up. The biting incident was only one of many ugly in,dents in a highly physical in or out" match at the
Arena das Dunas. Marchisio was shown a direct red card for putting his boot into Egidio Arevalo's knee in the 59th. Also, Mario Balotelli picked up
his second yellow card in two matches for a dangerous foul during the first half, and was benched for the second period. "(The referee) certainly didn't give us a helping hand," Buffon said. "But in

'Costa Rica was the surprise winner of Group D with seven points following a 0-0 draw.with England on Tuesday Uruguay finished second with six, while Italy and England went home with three and one point, respectively.

Suarez could be in trouble again
The Associated Press
NATAL, Brazil Uruguay striker Luis Suarez could once again be in trouble after appearing to bite an Italian opponent Tuesday in a keyWorld Cup qualifying game.' The incident, visible on television replays, showed Suarez apparently bite the shoulder of Italy defender Giorgio Chiellini as the pair clashed in the Italian penalty area. It happened about a minute before Uruguay scored in the 81st. Suarez was chasing the ball and was blocked by the Italy defender. 'He buried his mouth briefly in Chiellini's shoulder and the Italian player fell over, apparently in pain and clutching the shoulder. Suarez reeled away holding his mouth. Uruguay held on to beat 10-man Italy 1-0 and qualified for the knockout stages. Italy, a four-time champion, was eliminated. It is the third biting incident involving the talented but controversial striker. Chiellini confirmed after the game that he had been bitten.
"... not sending off Suarez (was) ridiculous. It was ab-' solutely clear. There's even a mark," Chiellini said of the bite.
Suarez was banned for seven matches by the Netherlands football federation in 2010 after biting PSV Eindhoven

player Otman Bakkal in a league match when he played for Ajax. After moving to Liverpool, he bit Chelsea's Branislav Ivanovic in 2013 and was banned for 10 games. Uruguay Coach Oscar Tabarez said he didn't see the alleged bite and repeatedly declined to comment. "If it happened the referee probably didn't see it," Tabarez said. He also defended his star striker, saying "Suarez, besides the mistakes he might have made, is the preferred target of certain media." FIFA can sanction players with bans of up to two years if its disciplinary commission decides there is a case to answer. Chiellini did everything he could during the match to bring the alleged bite to the referee's attention. The Italian player protested loudl, and pulled his shirt off his shoulder to point out to the referee

what appeared to be a mark, but, no immediate action was taken against Suarez on the field. In the 2010 World Cup in
South Africa, Suarez was sent off in the quarterfinal against Ghana for handling the ball on the goal-line. He was sent off, but Uruguay won the game in a penalty shootout to reach the semifinals.
The sport's world governing body had no immediate comment but was 'believed to be preparing a statement on the incident.
Earlier this year, FIFA president Sepp Blatter said video evidence "can contribute greatly to fair play, provided the sport's disciplinary bodies are prepared to use it - and they should."

Dear Annie: I was an army medic who served two deployments in Iraq and saw more than two years' worth of war injuries. Seeing injured soldiers, many of them young, maimed and seriously wounded, while also being concerned for your own life can have an impact on you long after you are out of the situation.
After my second deployment, I relocated to San Francisco for a fresh start. It turned out that the busy city, with its noises and crowds, was extremely difficult, and I started feeling depressed and anxious, having panic attacks if people got too near.
After a particularly bad panic attack, I sought help. I'm happy to say that therapy and mindfulness techniques
worked well for me, and I hope others in my situation will seek help, too. June 27 is PTSD Awareness Day. Anyone can take the first step toward healing by taking a free, anonymous PTSD self-assessment.

James Carville, a political commentator, said, "The best time to plant an oak tree was 25 years ago. The second best time is today."
In yesterday's deal, East used the bidding and early play to place the missing high cards and to work out the best defense against four hearts. Here is a second deal along the same lines. South is in four hearts. West leads the spade queen. South wins with his ace and plays a trump to dummy's queen. What should East do? South rebid three no-trump because North might have raised hearts with only three-card support if he had a minimum opening bid with, for example, 1-3-5-4 distribution. Here, though, North corrected to the heart game because he had two unstopped suits and four strong hearts.
East should wonder which four tricks his side might win. Since West's opening lead marks South with the spade ace and king, there are no spade winners available. East has one heart trick. There are no diamond winners, because even if South is missing the king, the finesse is working. So the defenders need three club tricks, or two clubs and a club ruff. This should make East's path clear. He must win with his heart ace and shift to the club five.
Now the spotlight falls on South. If he
rises with his club king, he will make the contract (with an overtrick if he draws trumps, cashes his spade and diamond winners; and end plays West with his club queen). But if South finesses his jack, West wins with his queen, returns the club two and receives a club ruff for down one.

Costa Rica defies doubters tc
The Associated Press
BELO HORIZONTE, Brazil - Defying all the doubters, Costa Rica came through perhaps the toughest group of the World Cup unbeaten and on top.
Costa Rica followed up its wins over Uruguay and Italy by holding England to a dour 0-0 draw on Thesday, enough to finish first in. Group D. Quite an achievement for a team that was seen as t eran'outsider in the first ever World Cup group that contained three former champions. "It wasn't the death group after all - at least not for us," Costa Rica coach Jorge Luis Pinto said. He dedicated the qualification to "those who believed in us and those who didn't." "People started believ-

Costa Rica only needed a draw to top Group D and played that way, setting up in a defensive 5-3-2 formation against England. The result gives Costa Rica its best World Cup performance. While Los Ticos reached the knockout stages in 1990, they finished second in awea-er group. Costa'Rica"will
