County commissioner arrested in Tallahassee

BY ANGIE COOK
acook@jcfloridan.com

Jackson County Commissioner Jeremy Branch was arrested Tuesday in Leon County. He was accused of punching a


fellow bar patron.
According to the Leon
County Sheriffs Office Daily Booking Report for June 24, Branch was arrested by the Tallahassee Police Department and charged with Branch battery touch or strike, a
misdemeanorL
An arrest affidavit filed by TPD described the reported circumstances that


led to Branch's arrest Around 2 a.m. EDT Tuesday morning, an officer providing police services at the Baja's Beach Club on West Pensacola Street was approached by the victim, a Tallahassee man, who reported that he had been punched in the face. The officer noted the appearance of dried blood on the man's shirt and left nostril. The victim told police he was leaving the club with a friend when he mistak-


enly bumped into Branch. The man and his friend said they immediately apologized, but the victim claims Branch "took a fighting stance and punched him in the face with a closed fist." The victim went on to say that his friend and club staff pushed Branch away and escorted him outside. The report says the man was getting

HOOKED ON LURES


KRISTIE CLOUD/FLORIDAN

am Pichard (reflected), administrative assistant for the Jackson County board of county commissioners, looks over her collection of antique lures on display at the Marianna branch of the Jackson County public library on Monday. Prichard has been collecting the lures since 1995 and one of the first pieces in her collection was a "Jitterbug" that belonged to her grandfather. She enjoys fishing and found most of the lures in the Atlanta area. The oldest itemnin her collection was made in 1915 and is called a "Southbend." It is made out of wood and the eyes of the lure are beads, which Prichard says is one way to tell if a lure is an antique. The wooden and frog lures are her favorites in the collection. The lures will be on display at the library until the end of August.

Jackson County commissioners meet Monday night in Marianna. An effort to impose a long-planned assessment to fund county fire services died that night, as a motion to adopt the measure received no second and never made it to a vote.



Fire assessment



effort fades at



county meetmg


Fee proposal

may be back, but

no time soon

BY ANGIE COOK
acook@jcfloridan.com

MARIANNA - At this week's meetirig of the Jackson County Board of County Commissioners, a crowd of first responders waited to hear the fate of a proposed fire protection assessment in Jackson County, but the effort quietly faded with no vote from the board.
The board had advertised a public hearing for the ordinance that, if approved, would have given the board the power to impose a fee on certain property owners in unincorporated areas of the county, but just one citizen came forth to address the matter


that evening.
"A few of us are paying for
everybody - and that is not right," said Gregory Bermes of Marianna.
Commissioner Kenny Stephens made a motion to adopt the ordinance, but after a few moments of silence, Stephens' motion died for lack of a second. Stephens said he had hoped the assessment would pass and, down the line, help decrease insurance rates for residents. As for the issue's lack of support from fellow commissioners, Stephens said in an interview Wednesday, "I'm not quite sure why there was no action taken on it."
But, he said, the board still has work to do regarding fire services.
"Even though (...) the assessment's not going to take place,

Cottondale youth pianist to attend Interlochen Arts Camp


Special to the Floridan

Ambria Tanner, 9, is anxiously awaiting the start of summer camp this year. Unlike prior years where she simply vacationed with family, this year, Ambria has been accepted and will attend Interlochen Arts Camp, the world's premier summer arts program for aspiring artists grades 3 through 12. Tanner, the daughter of Lynwood and Tamara Tanner of Cottondale, will further her studies in piano performance and undertake minor studies in dramatic arts. A resident of Cottondale, Tanner is a straight-A home-school student who enjoys science, reading and music of all genres. "I like everything from Mozart and Rimsky Korsakov to Kelly Clarkson and Lady Gaga," said Tanner as she practiced a piece of music recently. Though she began playing piano formally at age 5, her mother attributes her beginning to play much earlier. "I think she started banging on the keyboard at church around age 16 months. At that time, one of the keyboard players was her cousin, Joe Peace. He would sit her on his lap and place her fin-


gers on the keys and she was fascinated. The other keyboardist, Tamekia Walton, would try to get her to duplicate the sounds that she made, and she would, so it really all started there. Once she started taking lessons, she never wanted to stop."
Interlochen was a dream that Tanner aspired to, but wasn't sure she could attain. "I was worried that I wasn't good enough, or that it cost too much, but my mom and dad told me just to do the work and get in and they would worry about the rest. Well, I was accepted and now I'm so excited to be going [to Interlochen.] It'll be amazing to be surrounded by so much talent." Interlochen Arts Camp attracts students, faculty and staff from all 50 states and more than 40 coun-


tries. Each summer, some 3,000 artists fill Interlochen's wooded lakeside campus with an explosion of creativity. Student artists will learn from world-class instructors and produce hundreds of presentations each summer in music, dance, theatre, visual arts, creative writing and film. Among its distinguished alumni are such notables as singers Norah Jones, Josh Groban and Jewel, opera soprano Jessye Norman, conductor Loren Maazel, jazz drummer Peter Erskine, actors Barrett Foa and Felicity Huffman and many, many more. Approximately 10 percent of the nation's professional orchestra musicians have roots at Interlochen and the alumni community has been awarded nearly 100 Grammy Awards. Now that she's heading to Interlochen, Tanner is only slightly aware of some of the camp's famous past attendees. "I know Josh Groban went there." Like most kids, Tanner is most looking forward to the fun that Interlochen is apparently equally famous for. "They have their own ice cream shack just for the students." Now that's a reason to be really excited.


Jackson County 4-H winners shine at 2014 Tropicana speech contest


M ore than 600Jackson County
students from the fourth, fifth and sixth grades competed in 4-H Tropicana classroom and school speech competitions. Of those, the top 20 classroom speakers were chosen to compete at the Jackson County Agricultural Complex on Pennsylvania Avenue for top honors in the 2014 Jackson County 4-H Tropicana Contest.
With more than 140 family and friends in attendance, the competition was very fierce, and the judges deliberated for nearly half an hour to determine the winners. The 4-H Tropicana Speech Program provides students the opportunity to gain life skills such as planning and organizing, decision making, learning to learn and communication, and is offered to fourth-, fifth- and sixthgrade students. The topics, selected by the students, cover a wide range from telling a personal story, providing entertainment, history or social and health issues. No matter what the topic, all speeches must be organized, have continuity, include research if necessary and be detailed. Content and delivery are emphasized by the 4-H Tropicana Public Speaking Program and are both equally important.
Tropicana has sponsored the Florida 4-H Tropicana Speech Contest since 1969, and is a nationally recognized, award-winning program that has reached over two million youth since its inception. The most valuable employee skills cited by employers are communication, research, planning and leadership, all of which are key elements of the 4-H Tropicana Public Speaking Program. Tropicana provides certificates for all classroom


participants, ribbons for class winners, medallions for each grade level winner, and plaques for county contest winners. Tropicana also sponsors camp scholarships forfirst place winners. The Jackson County 4-H Youth Development Program delivers materials, which adhere to Common Core Standards, to classroom teachers for use in teaching speech writing and public speaking skills. Classroom winners advance to the school grade level competition, and the students placing first in the fourth, fifth and sixth grades, advance to the county competition, hosted by Jackson County 4-H.
The Jackson County youth competing in this year's county level program included:

Emerald Coast Hospice praises hospice aides


Special to the Floridan

Emerald Coast Hospice celebrated its hospice aides the week of June 12-19. Emerald Coast Hospice appreciates, recognizes and honors them for their dedication, hard work and passion that they show to their patients and families.
The hospice aide provides personal care to patients in their homes under the general direction of a registered nurse. Most patients receive hospice care in their own home, although it


can also be provided in other facilities as well.
Many times, the hospice aide spends the most direct patient care time with the patient and the family and can contribute very beneficial information to the team during the development and update of the patient plan of care. We at Emerald Coast Hospice are very thankful for our outstanding hospices aides and the excellent care they give.

Cousteau nears end of underwater living experiment


The Associated Press

AQUARIUS REEF BASE
- Fabien Cousteau has a week left in his 31-day underwater living experiment in the Florida Keys, and he's not exactly eager to return to the surface. "If anything, I'm panicking about the lack of time we have left," he said. "I'm feeling really comfortable and happy down here." In an interview Tuesday with The Associated Press inside Aquarius Reef Base, 63 feet below the surface of the waters off Key Largo, Cousteau said the scientists from Florida International University and Northeastern University who joined his "Mission 31" have had unprecedented access to a coral reef.
"The FIU researchers have accomplished more than six months' worth of data gathering in just two weeks because they were here, living under the sea in this undersea habitat," he said. "This highlights how important a habitat is for scientific research as well as outreach." A team of filmmakers and researchers dove with Cousteau on June 1 to Aquarius.

A team of filmmakers and researchers dove with Cousteau on June I to Aquarius. At the mission's midpoint, the FlU researchers traded places with researchers from Northeastern, who will return to land July 2 with Cousteau. They've been studying the effects of climate change and pollutants such as fertilizers on the reef.

the reef.
Aquarius, federally owned and operated by FIU, allows researchers to dive for hours without needing to return to a boat or go through de-


compression. The lab about the size of a school bus and encrusted with coral - includes living quarters for six people. Cousteau conceived of "Mission 31" as an hom-


age to the Conshelf underwater living experiments orchestrated in the 1960s by his grandfather, ocean exploration pioneer Jacques Cousteau. The three Conshelf mis-


sions were partly aimed at exploring the possibilities for colonizing the oceans. After almost a month without sunlight, Cousteau said living underwater long-term was technically possible for humans, but it may not be financially feasible on a large scale.
"If it's for science, education, outreach, filmmaking, those sorts of things, this is a great platform for that," he said. The mission has been broadcast live online, and it has proceeded without any serious medical or technical problems, aside from an air conditioning failure one night that left the aquanauts sweating as the temperature inside Aquarius rose to 98 degrees with 100 percent. humidity.
"It was extraordinarily uncomfortable, like sleeping in the Amazon, minus the bugs," Cousteau said. There's been so much work to do on the reef that no one has had time to be too homesick or to develop cabin fever, he said.
"Getting out there is so entertaining and so different every time that you'd be hard-pressed to think that you've started to go crazy," he said.


Grand jury rips DCF for undercounting child deaths


The Associated Press

FORT LAUDERDALE
- A grand jury report slammed the Department of Children and Families for making misleading changes in the way the agency categorized child abuse deaths to make the count seem lower, but also noted the agency has made great Strides since the abuse death of a 10-year-old Miami girl.
In the 30-page report issued Tuesday, grand jurors noted that. child deaths and abuse cases have continued since the gruesome 2011 death of Nubia Barahona who "was repeatedly abused and ultimately killed."
Her adoptive parents have pleaded riot guilty to first-degree murder in the case.
The initial report on Nubia's death found systemic issues as investigators and caseworkers repeatedly missed red flags and failed to communicate with each other, but Wednesday's report praised the agency for


implementing policies to address those issues. But the panel also found that changes in the way DCF investigates and discloses child death information were "worse than useless" and. should be corrected, according to the report.
The Associated Press reported in 2012 about changes in the way the state was tallying child deaths after obtaining a 2010 memo showing DCF narrowed guidelines for how to classify drowning and the deaths of children sleepinfig with parents known as co-sleeping. The agency said there had to be a willful act of a caregiver to be considered neglect.
Although it never became policy, investigators unofficially implemented it in a patchwork approach in various regions. The top two causes of death for Florida children under the age of four were drowning and co-sleeping.
"We are at an utter loss to understand how those who labor in the


field of child protection and child welfare could intentionally and deliberately find that these deaths were not verified as acts of neglect," the report said, adding: "Aside from being misleading, reported reductions in the total number of deaths may only be a consequence of changing the definitions of abuse and neglect." But the bulk of the report praised the agency for implementing recent changes, including improvements in the abuse hotline, in child abuse. investigations and in the use of a tool that helps investigators assets risk.
The report comes days after Gov. Rick Scott signed a law that would allow funding for 270 additional child protective investigators to reduce caseloads, which the report recommended: The new law also calls for a fundamental shift in the way DCF investigates and responds to cases. It clearly states that protecting a child from abuse


is paramount and more important than keeping a family together. In the past, DCF has placed a premium on putting fewer children in foster care and, instead, offering family services while the child remains at home. The grand jury report noted there are gaps in those services and lax enforcement, usually nothing more than a verbal agreement from a parent to stay away from an abusive spouse, attend parenting classes or to quit drugs.
The report said those "empty promises" often put children in harm's way.
But the new law says safety plans can no longer rely on verbal promises from parents. On Wednesday, the agency also launched a website aimed at improving transparency around child abuse deaths. The site, which was mandated by the Legislature, will include data by county, child's age and prior history with the department.


Tax returns an issue in governor's race


The Associated Press

TALLAHASSEE - Republican Gov. Rick Scott's campaign suggests in a new ad that former Gov. Charlie Crist has something to hide by not releasing his wife's tax returns, while Crist said Wednesday that Scott is "hitting below the belt" by dragging his wife Carole into a negative campaign ad.
Scott last week released the joint tax return he filed with his wife Ann and called on Crist to do the same. The same day that Crist released three years of tax returns for the three years since he left the governor's office, the political committee working to re-elect Scott released a statewide ad criticizing Crist for not releasing his wife's. "It's outrageous. It is hitting below the belt," Crist said in a phone interview. "He has no honor, no decency. To drag my wife into a political ad is beyond the pale." Unlike the Scotts, the Crists file separate tax returns.
The ad also negatively refers to Crist as a millionaire, a status he only


recently - and barely
- achieved. Crist has a net worth of $1.2 million, less than the value of Scott's $1.5 million vacation home, according to financial documents listing income and assets that both candidates are required to file. Crist, now a Democrat, was never worth more than $1 millionwhile serving as a Republican governor from 2007 to 2011. Scott has a net worth of $133 million.
Crist's tax returns showed his adjusted gross income in the three years since leaving office ranged from $541,369 to . $704,881.
Neither candidate is required to release his federal income tax returns, but Florida gubernatorial candidates have traditionally done so. Whether governors and their challengers release tax returns varies from state to state, but the practice is voluntary. For example, Texas Gov. Rick Perry releases his, while California Gov. Jerry Brown doesn't.
Scott said in a written statement released by his campaign that Carole Crist's tax returns should also be released.

State's largest insurer votes to lower rates


The Associated Press

TALLAHASSEE - Florid's largest property insurer, which has more than 928,000 policyholders across the state, plans to drop its rates in 2015 after raising them the four previous years. The board of Citizens Property Insurance voted Wednesday to lower rates by an average of 3.2 percent for single family homeowners in 2015. The state-created insurer says that nearly 70 percent of


those with homeowner policies should see some sort of decrease.
For some customers, including those living in coastal regions from the
-Panhandle to the Atlantic coast, the drop could be as much as 10 percent.
"The rates approved today by the board indicate that Citizens is moving in the right direction," Citizens President and CEO Barry Gilway said in a statement. "They also are a clear sign that Citizens and all Florida property

Stephens also said he thinks the issue will return at a later date.


Government Services Group Inc. was hired by the county last year to conduct a fire services study and later present possible assessment rates to the board. That same company is also doing similar work for the City of Marianna. The municipality is also considering implementing a fire assessment.


A continual cry by some GOP legislators has been that Citizens rates have been priced too low and that the insurer is unfairly competing with private insurance companies. But company officials insist that several factors have diminished the need for rate hikes next year. The state has not been hit with a hurricane since 2005 which has enabled Citizens to spend less of getting back-up financing to cover hurricane damages. Gilway stressed to


board members that Citizens has a surplus right now of nearly $8 billion and can cover nearly 20 billion in damages if a storm does hit. Some Citizens customers will still likely see an increase, including condominium customers and those coastal homeowner customers who have just wind only coverage.
Those with sinkhole coverage in Hernando County will also pay 10 percent more.


The Associated Press

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. - A police officer caught on video kicking a restrained boy's legs out from under him will not face criminal charges, prosecutors said Wednesday. In dramatic footage that surfaced online last month, Officer Jermaine Jones of the Boynton Beach Police is seen approaching the boy, who is standing with his hands restrained, and delivering a sweeping kick that causes the boy to fall to the ground. The state attorney for Palm Beach County investigated the incident, saying in a memo on the case that the boy had been "disruptive and profane" and had chest-bumped another officer, but had not been injured in the incident.
"Officer Joneshad the responsibility, along with the other officers present, to maintain control of the scene,"


the memo said. "The action taken by Officer Jones controlled the juvenile and was not done merely with malicious intent." The prosecutors conceded the footage was "dramatic" and "disturbing" and said that the method Jones chose to place the boy on the ground "may have been poorly executed and may have, at least inpart, been executed in that manner because of the disrespect the juvenile was showing."
Students who apparently shot the video can be heard commenting in the background. "They can't do that!" one of the voices says. "I recorded that. I recorded that,"' says another.
The boy, who is 13, has not been identified. Police responded after eggs were allegedly thrown at the driver of the boy's bus. No students were ultimately charged with any wrongdoing in the case. A separate internal police investigation is still ongoing.

Researchers: Annual 'dead zone' to be average


The Associated Press

BATON ROUGE, La. Researchers say the annual low-oxygen "dead zone" that forms every summer off the coast of Louisiana will be about average size this year. According to forecast modeling done through research at a number of universities, including LSU and the Louisiana Universities Marine Consortium, and through support from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, the dead zone will end up covering between 4,633 square miles to 5,708 square miles this summer. NOAA, in a press release Tuesday, said the actual size of the low-oxygen area will be measured later this year with results released in July or early August. The Advocate reports


last year's dead zone measured 5,840 miles. The Mississippi River Gulf of Mexico Watershed Nutrient Task Force has long set a goal to reduce the annual size of the "dead zone" to less than 1,930 square miles. The forecast estimate is based in part on measurements of how much nitrates from fertilizer and other sources flowed down the Mississippi River and into the Gulf of Mexico. The nitrates that flow down the river ener the Gulf where it feeds small organisms that use up oxygen as they die and fall to the sea floor. Without windy weather from storms or weather fronts to help mix oxygen-rich water at the top with the low-oxygen layers of water at the bottom, lowoxygen conditions can accumulate to a point where levels drop too low to support marine life.

An attempt to get Branch's version of events was unsuccessful. Police say Branch refused to explain what happened and would only say "I'm a county commissioner in Jackson County; don't put your hands on me." Witnesses corroborated the victim's story and Branch was arrested and taken into custody without further incident. He was released from jail the same day and was in attendance forTuesdayevening's meeting of the Jackson County Board of County Commissioners in Marianna.

Corvette museum likely to keep part of sinkhole


The Associated Press

A massive sinkhole that swallowed eight prized sports cars at the National Corvette Museum has become such a popular attraction that officials want to preserve it - and may even put one or two of the crumpled cars back inside the hole.
The board of the museum in Bowling Green, Kentucky, said Wednesday it is in favor of preserving a large section of the sinkhole that opened up beneath the museum in Febmruary. It happened when the museum was closed, and no one was injured. What started as a tragedy has turned into an opportunity to lure more people off a nearby interstate to visit the museum, which struggled in prior years to keep its doors open, museum officials said. "This gives us one more asset ... to be able to attract those folks that maybe just having Corvettes on display would not get them to come here," museum Executive Director Wendell Strode said in a telephone interview. "We think it will continue for some time to be of great interest." The damaged cars toppled like toys amid rocks, concrete and dirt when the sinkhole opened up in


the museum's Skydome. The cars carry a total value believed to exceed $1 million. The extent of damage varies widely from car to car.
The cars were eventually pulled out of the giant hole to great fanfare. Visitors can take a close look at the sinkhole and the damaged vehicles.
Attendance was . up nearly 60 percent from March to the start of this week, compared to the year-ago period, museum officials said. Sign-ups for museum memberships are up sharply, as are merchandise and cafe sales at the museum. The museum sells sinkhole-related shirts, post cards and prints.
Museum board members considered three options for the sinkhole: fill it in, preserve the entire sinkhole or keep a portion of it.
They opted to maintain about half the 40-footwide, 60-foot-deep sinkhole, Strode said. There's a "strong probability" that one or two of the damaged cars will be put back in the hole, he said.
The project's estimated cost is $3 million to $5 million, Strode said. How much insurance will cover is still being determined, he said.


In this photo taken June 1, National Corvette Museum executive director Wendell Strode stands near a damaged 2001Corvetty in Bowling Green, Ky. The mUseum is showing eight Corvettes that fell into a sinkhole that opened up inside the museum in February.


Plans are to leave the entire sinkhole and the eight Corvettes on display through the end of August, and construction on the. "revised" sinkhole would then begin in September,. the museum said. The museum is celebrating its 20th anniversary with an event in late August.

Maine governor, legal chief dispute inigant. aid


The Associated Press

AUGUSTA, Maine - Republican Gov. Paul LePage and Democratic Attorney General Janet Mills are at odds over the governor's directive to withhold aid to immigrants who can't prove they're living in the U.S. legally, and their dispute is causing confusion among Maine's cities and towns that dole out the aid. LePage says federal law prohibits the state from providing aid to those living in the country illegally, and he has threatened to withhold funds for a


municipal welfare program if cities defy that prohibition. But Mills says the governor is overstepping his authority, and she has advised municipalities to ignore his wishes. Their dispute has generated confusion for cities and towns regarding Maine's general assistance program, which is paid partly by the state. About 1,000 people will be affected and many of them will need assistance while seeking asylum through a lengthy process from places like central Africa, said Susan Roche, executive director


of the Immigrant Legal Advo'cacy Project in Maine.
"These are some of the most vulnerable members of our community," she said. "They are fleeing because of the really dangerous situations ... and they need their basic needs to. be met."
LePage officials argue that cities and towns are free to use theirown funds to help residents. "Local taxpayers ui4stieak for themselves," the governor said in his weekly radio address. "I urge all Mainers to tell your city councilors and selectmen


to stop handing out your money to illegals."
Municipal.officihls worry that if they continue to provide aid to this segment of the population, they risk losingmillions, of dollars from the state each year. But if they follow the governor's directive, they fear those who are denied aid will take legal ac-. tion against them. Mills said LePage has no authorityto circumvent the Legislature, which must sign off on substantive changes. She said his new directive also creates other legal prob-


lems:'Among them, it would transform municipal clerks into "mini immigration 'Officials," she said.

Comeback win gives Sneads another shot at state


BY DUSTIN KENT
dkent'cfloridan.com

The Sneads Darlings All-Stars will get another shot at a state title thanks to a dramatic 10-9 district championship victory over Marianna on Monday night at Optimist Park. Sneads advanced to last year's Darlings state tourney in Brooksville, winning two games before eventually getting eliminated by Hemnando.
The team lost both games by a combined three runs and returns six players from lastyear's team, giving theAll-Stars a great chance on paper to break through in Okeechobee this year. "We've got half the team back from last year, so it won't be a


shock for them when they get down there," Sneads coach Steve Sprouse said Tuesday. "They got some experience going down there and they won two games down there, so I hope we can make a good showing." Sneads breezed through most of the district tournament, winning by scores of 17-8 over Franklin County, 27-8 over Wewahitchka, and 14-2 over Marianna before running into trouble in Monday's rematch. Marianna jumped out to a 6-0 lead in the first inning and led 82 through two innings. Sneads rallied with five runs in the third inning and two more in the fourth to tie the game at 9-9, with Marianna reclaiming the lead with a run in the


top of the sixth.
But a pair of runs in the bottom of the sixth gave Sneads the extra-inning. victory and a second straight district championship. "We started out pretty slow early on and had a lot of errors that were kind of uncharacteristic and dug ourselves a hole," Sprouse said. "We were down quite a few runs, but we just slowly chipped our way back into the game. We were able to settle our defense down and we got our bats going." Rea Green and Shiley Coulliette had four hits each to lead Sneads, with Ella Sprouse and Reanna Harrell adding three hits as well.
The state tournament will start July 11.

Malone is nearing the end of its summer season with a pair of games against Bay High and North Bay Haven coming Saturday in Graceville in the Tigers' summer finale. To this point, Welch said that he has been very pleased with the progress his players have made this summer, though he and they are aware that there is still much work to be done between now and the start of the real season. "I still feel like there are a lot of ways we can get better," the coach said. "Defensively we've still got a long way to go. We reach and gamble too much.
"I feel like when we get some of that stuff cleaned up we've got a lot of room for improvement. But these guys have done as good as any group I've had in terms of working hard and developing during the summer. I think they got a little confidence this week."


World Cup


Loew: MLS schedule helps US with fitness


The Associated Press

RECIFE, Brazil - Germany coach Joachim Loew isn't sure his team's extra day of rest this week makes up for the months-long scheduling advantage his friend, Jurgen IKlinsmann, has had with the U.S. team.
SOn the eve of Germany's last Group G match against the United States on Thursday, Loew expressed admiration for the relentless physical play the American squad has brought to its first two World Cup matches in hot, humid Brazil.
Loew also suggested the Major League Soccer schedule, which is shorter than those of European leagues and starts af-


ter the winter, helped Klinsmann get his team in exceptional physical condition forWorld Cup play in June. "We have to be very well prepared, in physical terms," to play the Americans, Loewsaid.
Both teams are coming off 2-2 draws. Germany was held by Ghana on Saturday, while the U.S. saw a victory slip away in the last-minute of injury time against Portugal the following night. The U.S. has "this aggressiveness that we've seen in this tournament in their two games. They're very well prepared. They're very fit," Loew said. "They might have had an advantage in that their league doesn't last 11 months. Jurgen had his team in January and they


were working together since then. This is an advantage. That's why they're at an excellent physical leveL" Loew's assessment doesn't necessarily apply across the U.S. squad. Of the 23 Americans Klinsmann brought to Brazil, 11 play in MIS. Most of the rest earn their living in Europe, in the same leagues as most German players. In addition, while Clint Dempseyplays for Seattle, he spent part of last winter on loan to Fulham in England. Still, Loew sees the U.S. team's fitness as one of its overall strengths. "Their matches really showed great involvement and pressure all the time in the game against Ghana and also against Portugal," Loew said.

Graceville



goes 3-3 in


Panama City


BY DUSTIN KENT
dkent@jcfloridan.com


The Graceville Tigers went 1-2 in their final day at the Gulf Coast State 2014 Team Camp in Panama City on Tuesday, beating Freeport and falling to a pair of tough Georgia squads in Johnson and Gainesville. The Tigers were coming off of winning two of three games Monday with victories over North Hall (Ga.) and Brewbaker Tech (Ala.), but the scheduled toughened Tuesday and the results reversed.
However, Graceville coach Matt Anderson' sid he was still pretty happy with the way his team played.
"I thought we were actually pretty good. I felt like we actually played better inthe two losses," he said. "Johnson and Gainesville can beat anybody we play except for maybe Chipley and Marianna.
"We probably played better (Tuesday) than we did Monday. The level of competition was the difference. But I felt like we got better each' game."
Against Johnson, Graceville took an early lead and stayed in front through halftime, but Johnson used a 14-2 run midway through the second half to take control and hold on to win by 10 points.
Next up was Freeport and again the Tigers had a close edge at the break, butthis time it was GHS that came up with the big secondhalf run to take control and win by 10. In the finale, Gainesville pulled away with about eight minutes left in the second half to extend the margin to 14 points, with GracevMie rallying a bit too late to trim the final deficit to seven.
While the 3-3 record isn't overwhelming, Anderson said he believes his team got a lot out of the two-day stay in Panama City. "I feel good'about it. We played some highlevel competition and played some different styles and got to see some different ways to get better," the coach said. "I think we got a lot better as individuals and as a team, which is why you go to these things." The Tigers will wrap up their summer by hosting a full slate of games Saturday at Graceville High School. L

Annie's Mailbox


Dear Annie: My husband had an affair for three years. I had no idea this was going on until he told me and filed for divorce.
We have two teenage children, and I haven't talked very much with them about the situation: My daughter, who is 18, told me that she's been asked by others whether one of us cheated and that's why we are divorcing. I skirted the question and asked how she replied to this, and she said, "I told them it was nofile of their business." She never asked me outright whether this is what happened in our case, so I didn't tell' her.. I don't know whether or not I should say anything. Should Itell them to ask their father? After all, it's not really my information to share. What happens if it comes up later and Dad decides to bring his girlfriend to a family event? That would devastate me. I think it would be good to have all of the information outin the open before that happens. My daughter has a great deal of disdain for people who cheat on their spouses,


and I don't want to hurt the excellent relationship she now has with her father. The two' of them have become very close since we separated, and I'm glad about that. Part of me wants to tell my children now and get it out of the way. I don't want my daughter to think I'm giving her information in order to "get her on my side." But I also don't want her to be angry with me for withholding information that other family members know about.
. -WORRIER
Dear Worrier: If your daughter asks directly whether one of you cheated, you should be honest without sounding bitter. But it seems as though she may not actually want to know. If her fears are confirmed, she may feel forced to distance herself from Dad. Should she find out later from other relatives and Blame you for withholding the information, simply tell her that you didn't want to damage the closerelationship she had with her father; which is a commendable stance to take. We think she will forgive you.


Bridge


Have you ever made a wild overbid on a deal because it felt like the right thing to do at the time? Of course you have; we all have. But then you probably found yourself in a hopeless contract, went down and apologized to yourpartner. Sometimes, though, you might have been able to call on the assistance of your opponents.
In today's deal, South is in four spades. West leads the club jack That wins the first trick and South ruffs the second club. How should declarer continue? When North rebid one no-trump to show a balanced 12-14 points, South might have settled for a two-spade signoff, but one can understand a game-invitational three-spade rebid. Here, North would probably have passed because he does not have a very suitable hand for a spade contract. Four spades appears to be one level too high. South seems destined to lose two spades, one heart and one club. But he has a Machiavellian chance. He should cross to the dummy in a red suit and call for the spade jack.
Many Easts, looking at the queen


and 10, would not be able to resist the temptation to cover with the queen. Then, though, after South wins with his ace, there will be a stunned silence when West is forced to play his king. Declarer drives out the spade 10 and claims his contract. Although the opponents are supposedly trying to defeat your contract, remember that many of them will misdefend if you give them half a chance.

Matt Kenseth hopes when he climbs out of his No.20 Toyota this Sunday at Kentucky, it's after capturing his first win of 2014, one season aftel winning a series-high seven races. "As fhr as the urgency to get a win," Kenseth said, "yeah, you want to get one:'."

Kenseth puts Sonoma wreck behind him, hopes Kentucky will give him elusive victory


BY DAN GELSTON The Associated Press


Satt Kenseth wanted to put a
road-course wreck behind him mand focus on chasing his first win.
Dale Earnhardt Jr.? He hoped there were
no hard feelings over the accident before
the Sprint Cup series shifted this weekend
to Kentucky Speedway.
g Earnhardt blamed himself for an inci3.m. dent that wrecked Kenseth at Sonoma and
was apologetic on the radio. The longtime
friends and on-track rivals appeared to
smoothany lingering ill feelings about the
incident with a chat lTuesday.
f Earnhardt, who finished third on the
road course, jumped a curb and sent
uly Kenseth's car into a tire barrier. Kenseth's
race was spoiled and he earned his first
DNF of the season.
"I'm sure it was just a mistake," Kenseth
S said. "I mean, part of the thing is the way
the racing is today, it's much more entertaining to watch, especially road courses.
You're running side by side with those
two-wide restarts, and you run two wide at a track that's really made to run single
file, it's very small and a lot of marbles,
and there's really only one good lane
through there."
Kenseth said earlier this week he was
surprised he had not heard from Earn-

Gordon leads the points standings. ) Next race: Coke Zero 400, July 5, Daytona International Speedway, Daytona, Florida


DRIVER TO WATCH AT KENTUCKY
a Matt Kenseth: Only10 races remain until the Chase, which means the former champion's window to win a race is closing.
Kentucky was home to one of Kenseth's Cup-best seven wins a year' ago and one of his best chances to capture that elusive win in 2014.


hardt following the race. Earnhardt used Twitter to note he finally did chat with Kenseth.
Coming off a seven-win season, Kenseth is winless and is fourth in the points standings (11th in the driver standings that will determine the Chase qualifiers), knowing he needs at least one victory to bolster his bid for a spot in the Chase for the Sprint Cup championship field. Kenseth is the defending race winner at Kentucky Speedway.
"As far as the urgency to get a win, yeah, you want to get one," Kenseth said. "In


this new format you really need at least a win and be up in the top 30 to really feel confident about being in the Chase."

Field of 42
The No. 77 car owned by Randy Humphrey will sit out this weekend's NASCAR race at Kentucky, leaving the entry list at 42, one car shy of a full field. This would Mark the first time since the November 2001 race at New Hampshire that NASCAR ran a Sprint Cup race without the full 43-car field. Dave Blaney made four starts in the No. 77 this season.
