Dothan man gets 20 years for armed robbery

Dothan Eagle
Afederaljudgesentenced a Dothan, Alabama, man to 20 years in prison for his role in the robbery of several convenience stores across the Wiregrass, including at least one that left a store owner injured by gunfire.
Clark Morris, an assistant prosecutor with the U.S. Attorney's Office, said U.S. District Judge Myron Thompson ordered 26year-old Milas Antwon Grant III to serve a 20-year sentence in federal prison. Both Grant and his codefendant, 33-year-old

Throne Thomas Smiley, pleaded guilty to the robberies, earlier this year. Smiley has yet to be sentenced for his involvement in the robberies Records showDNArecovered from a pair of gloves left behind at a robbery in Marianna gave authorities a "hit," or DNA profile, on a Dothan man and led authorities to make two arrests.
The men were arrested in June 2013 and served with a six-count felony indictment about a month later for their involvement in three robberies across the Wiregrass.


Federal court records show Grant pleaded guilty earlier this year to the robbery and discharging a firearm during the robbery of a Dollar General store on Eddins Road in Cowarts, Alabama, on April 17, 2013. During the robbery, an employee of the store was struck with a pistol. Records also show Grant pleaded guilty to the robbery of a Hobo Pantry convenience store in Enterprise, Alabama, on May 31, 2013. The plea agreement also said the victim, a store employee, was struck with a pistol during the robbery and had her purse stolen.

) LOCAL...3A

Deputies with the Houston County Sheriffs Office originally arrested Grant on June, 13, 2013, in Dothan on an outstanding arrest warrant from Florida. According to the complaint filed in federal court, Grant confessed to four robberies and identified two co-conspirators, one of whom was Smiley. The six-count indictment only charged Grant and Smiley with three armed robberies in Alabama. There were nearly a dozen armed robberies at convenience stores across the tri-state area during a similar time period.



Council considering museum support

MARIANNA-A plan to turn the historic First National Bank building into a museum or other cultural facility is under consideration by the Jackson County Tourist Development Council. Main Street Marianna Director Charlotte Brunnier was before the TDC board Wednesday morning to formally request financial support for the project, but board members Edd Sorenson and Mickey Gilmore were particularly keen to see a more detailed plan for the facility's proposed use before committing thousands of dollars to its restoration and repurposing. Brunner asked for $85,000 from the TDC, which would help meet the dollar-for-dollar match requirement of a $400,000 grant recently awarded to the city of Marianna. Officials in that municipality are also considering support of the project and possible ways to meet any financial obligations associated with the project, should they choose to accept the grant. One of the ways Brunner said she will compile information regarding the potential use of the city-owned structure is by visiting cities like Apalachicola, which has a cultural facility that could serve as a model of what

Southerland touts new legislation

U.S. Rep. Steve Southerland, R-Panama City,
introduced legislation (H.R. 4955) this week for a 10year extension to a
Southerland free-trade
provision between the United States and Bahrain. The bill would keep in place a tariff preference level that is set to expire in January 2016, ensuring WestPoint Home in Chipley has continued access to materials, imported from Bahrain. Southerland's office characterized the legislation as "critical to keeping 260 Northwest Florida manufacturing jobs at

WestPoint Home." "As the president and CEO of the last major U.S.-based home textiles producer, this is an issue my team has been very focused on," Normand Savaria, president and CEO of WestPoint Home, was quoted as saying in a release from Southerland's office.
"The bottom line is that the proposed extension provides a mechanism to protect U.S. jobs." The measure also received support from the Northwest Florida Manufacturers Council and Florida Chamber of Commerce.
Southeriand hosted a news conference at Chipley's WestPoint Home in April unveiling his plans for the legislation.

Team of BCF students on mission in Cuba

Special to the Floridan

It is not so unusual anymore for Florida Baptists to be involved in ministry in Cuba With a longtime partnership between conventions, more and more churches are sending teams, and more believers are having the opportunity to see God's hand at work in this island nation. This summer marked the third opportunity for students from The Baptist College of Florida in Graceville to participate in the ongoing ministry.
While it may not be unlusual for BCF to send a team, this particular group included some pretty unique participants. "No one knows what kind of group you will get when a trip is announced," explained BCF Missions professor Rich Elligson. "We know we can always count on energetic, enthusiastic students who are well qualified, well prepared, and eager to serve. ButWith the unity, there always comes diversity, and I am never quite sure what to expect," he added. This year's team

BCF Christian Counseling Major Melle Chambers and Missions Major Laura Root work together to complete a window frame for the church renovation in Cuba.

included everything from an 18-year-old Spanish speaking Missionary Kid to an 81-year-old widow who served with her husband in Mexico. Jim Womble and Bill Brown, both of whom take classes online, joined with the on campus students from Graceville. There was a Cuban-American whose parents immigrated to the United States as children, and a visually impaired student. Beyond the vast differences in back-

grounds, several courses of study were represented as well, including students majoring in missions, missions with a concentration in aviation, Christian counseling, Christian studies, history/social studies, and leadership/Christian education.
That's not surprising according to Kinchen, "The Baptist College of Florida has never wavered in our commitment to 'Changing the World Through the Un-

changing Word.' The solid biblical foundation our students receive produces tangible ministry results. Regardless of the students' majors, they are out there getting the work done." Andgettingtheworkdone is exactly what the BCF team did in Cuba. Mornings were spent in renovation of a church buildinga project that has been in the works for the past eight years. The concrete wall covering the original block had to be chipped away to allow for resurfacing. It was slow grueling work with a hammer in one hand and a chisel in the other. Even Melle Chambers, who is legally blind, took a turn, feeling her way along the wall with hand and chisel. "It's not as hard as you might think," she quipped. "A moving target would present some challenges, but fortunately the wall stayed put," she said. While walls were being chipped away in one room, 81-year-old Laura Root was busy painting metal window frames just outside. "I'd hurt somebody if I had to swing a hammer," she

warned. "But I can handle a paintbrush, just as long as nobody cares if I dribble a little paint along the way. Oops ... I got some on my shirt already."
Afternoons were scheduled for children's vacation Bible school, organized and directed by BCF junior history/social studies major Alainna Davis. "Children are precious everywhere you find them, but these kids are so special. We all wanted to pack them up and take them home," she said with a smile., Evenings were reserved for a Bible conference on the Sermon on the Mount, taught by Elligson. "The Baptist church in Cuba is strong, and getting stronger," Elligson said. "This church was deeply interested in Bible doctrine. They were very engaged, took notes, and asked great questions. They are very serious about their faith." When Elligson offered to leave his study notes with them, the Cuban translator was thrilled. "I will translate them into Spanish and distribute copies all over Cuba," he said. "By the end

of the year the whole island will be preaching the Sermon on the Mount."
As usual, everyone pitched in on the work and everyone participated in the ministry. Beyond that, students mixed well with their Cuban hosts. This was immediately noticed by Dana Hardee, the Florida Baptist Convention volunteer team leader and Idlewild church member who led the group. "I was so impressed with this team from BCF," Hardee said. "They were well organized and so spiritually mature. They built relationships everywhere they went. Whether they yere working with the church ladies in the kitchen, practicing songs with them. for the worship time, or relaxing around the domino table late at night, these students were keenly aware of the Cubans they were working among and utterly engaged in their lives. Dr. Elligson predicted there would be lots of tears when the final goodbye was said, and he was right. Friends were made and tears were shed."

Church Brief

Their family members and friends will march in with their theme song and make a contribution toward the church's annual harvest day celebration which will be held in September. The church will host a salad luncheon immediately following the program. Rev. Lanice Bonds is the pastor. For more information, call the church administrator at 718-3315.

A divine appointment, Cuban style

Special to the Floridan

What the world calls a "coincidence," believers call a "divine appointment." Some events are so far beyond human control, that only divine providence can be credited. Such is the recent story of Jennifer and her uncle. Jennifer, a freshman Missions' major at The Baptist College of Florida in Graceville, had no thought of divine appointments last fall when she asked to be part of a team of 10 students traveling from BCF to Cuba as part of a summer 2014 Florida Baptist Convention partnership mission project. She simply loves missions, loves slhar-

ing the gospel, and loves taking BCF classes. "A mission practicum through BCF is the best of all worlds," Jennifer says. "I get to do what I love, learn while I am doing it, and get college credit all at the same time." Besides that, Cuba held a particular interest for her. Jennifer is a Cuban-American, born to Cuban parents who immigrated to the United States as children. While it was not her primary motivation for joining the team, she admitted that there was some mystique about visiting the land of her heritage and seeingfor herself what life is like in the island nation her parents opce called home.

As preparations for the trip were made, Jennifer was reminded that she still has relatives in Cuba-to whom she had never even spoken to, much less met face to face. A few weeks prior to leaving, she confided to BCF missions professor Rich Elligson that she had an uncle living somewhere in Havana. "Jennifer casually mentioned an uncle in Havana, and wondered aloud about the possibility of meeting him there," Elligson recounted. Knowing the rigors of the schedule, the remote location of the project in Cuba's interior, and the

The choirs of Eastside Baptist Church on U.S. 90 East in Marianna, First Baptist Church and Trinity Baptist Church of Marianna, will join for a patriotic celebration of "This Land We Love" on Wednesday, July 2.

From Page 4A
complexities of arranging such a meeting, he did not give her much hope for that happening. "I basically told her that we were going to the interior to work, and would spend very little time in the capital city. But I said we would see how things went. I didn't want her to get her hopes up," Elligson said.
After an intense week of ministry inland, the team boarded the bus for the trip back to Havana for departure back to the States. Jennifer was content with her solid week of ministry, and happy to have had the chance to experience the Cuban culture. But still, she wondered about meeting her uncle. "Jennifer had a couple of potential phone numbers for her uncle with her," Elligson, explained. "I encouraged her to go ahead and call. Who knows? Maybe something would work out after all.'
Her uncle answered the phone almost immediately, and very graciously offered to meet Jennifer in Havana before the group departed. The next morning at 10, the entire team cheered as she embraced her mother's brother for the very first time.
But the story gets better. With the team headed to a local marketplace, Jennifer's uncle decided to'tag along

with her and the 'group. For the next few hours they vi* ited, gradually getting to know each other better and catching up on family news. When the conversation turned to the team's purpose for being in Cuba, it opened the door. for presenting the gospel. The Florida Baptist volunteer team leader reached for his Bible, and a student translator joined them at a wooden table while BCF teammates lingered and quietly prayed.
Jennifer's uncle said he believed in God, but was not sure how Jesus fit into the picture. And he wasn't sure how God could really love a man like him. Over the next 30 minutes, patiently and lovingly, the Scriptures were shared. Fishing his glasses out of his pocket, Jennifer's uncle read for him self of God's great love demonstrated in Jesus Christ and His sacrificial death on the cross. "He was very intent," said Kelsi, a BCF Missions major who helped with translation. "Before the conversation ended, he was answering his own questions. It was exciting to watch."
When asked if he' wanted to trust Christ, he emphatically said yes. And in the concluding moments of this "divine appointment" Jennifer led her uncle to faith in Christ. Needless to say, Jennifer, her uncle, and the entire team were overjoyed at such a dramatic end to an already fruitful week.

DNA evidence prompts court to overturn sentence

The Associated Press

TALLAHASSEE - Nearly 30 years after Paul C. Hildwin was convicted of strangling a Hernando County woman, the Florida Supreme Court on Thursday overturned both his conviction and death sentence, saying that new DNA evidence "completely discredits" the case used by the state.
A divided court ruled 52 that Hildwin should be given a new trial. The new evidence in-

stead points to the person that Hildwin said had done the crime all along - the victim's boyfriend, who was sentenced in 1998 to 20 years for attempted sexual battery of a child. "It's a wonderful day but a very long and overdue one," said Nina Morrison, a senior staff attorney with The Innocence Project working on the case. "It's taken us a decade to get him the justice he deserved."
Hildwin had been sentenced to die for killing 42-

year-old Vronzettie Cox, whose nude body was found stuffed in the trunk of a car parked in some Hernando County woods in September 1985. She had been strangled with a T-shirt.
Prosecutors in 1986 contended DNA found on underwear and a rag located at the crime scene matched blood characteristics of Hildwin. Hildwin had been found with a check and rings belonging to the victim, but he contended he stole the items

while Cox was fighting with her boyfriend, William Haverty.
Years later, however, the DNA was tested and it showed that it did not belong to Hildwin. That wasn't enough to win him a new trial, so Hildwin's lawyers pushed over the last eight years to get the DNA matched against federal and state criminal databases. That showed that the DNA matched Haverty.
The court in its ruling said that discovery un-

dermines the case agaifist Hildwin and shows that he is likely to win acquittal if he is placed on trial again. It said a "significant pillar" of the case as presented to the jury had "collapsed." "The state prosecuted the case based on a false theory of .scientific evidence that was woven throughout its presentation of evidence and argument - scientific evidence that has now been totally discredited," states the unsigned opinion. Two justices - Charles

Canady and Ricky Polston
- dissented from the ruling. Canady argued that the DNA evidence would be of "little consequence" and would not be conclusive enough to prove that Haverty was the killer. Morrison said that Hildwin will remain on Florida's death row until the time passes for the state to argue for a rehearing in the case. Then it will be up to prosecutors in Hernando County to decide whether to pursue the nearly threedecade-old murder case.

Census shows Florida population continues to get older

The Associated Press

ORLANDO - Florida's population continued to get older last year from a combination of natural aging and new residents, and the state had the highest rate of residents older than 65, according to estimates released Thursday by the U.S. Census Bureau. The estimates show Florida's population grew by 1.2 percent from 2012 to 2013, and the state had about 19.5 million residents as of July 2013. The census estimate had Florida trail-

ing New York by less than 150,000 residents to be the nation's fourth-most populous state, but that estimate is now likely outdated.
Florida's growth has outpaced New York's and Florida likely surpassed New York in population earlier this year to qualify as the nation's third-most populous state.
More than 232,000 new residents were added between July 2012 and July 2013, a figure that is still less than the number of new Floridians at the height of the state's last population boom in the middle of

the last decade.
But University of Florida demographer Stefan Rayer said it marks a return to decent growth after stagnant population change during the recession. "When you compare it to 2008 or 2009, when the population wasn't growing, then it's quite a rebound," Rayer said. Florida's overall population growth was driven by migration. New residents accounted for more than 90 percent of the population growth in the past three years, and more than 80 percent of the population change froin 2012 to 2013.

The new residents were almost evenly split between domestic and international migration.
The median age of Floridians continued to inch up, growing from 40.8 in 2010 to 41.5 in 2013. Sumter County had the nation's highest percentage of seniors, with more than half of its residents older than 65. Hispanics accounted for just under one-quarter of Florida's population. The Hispanic population of 4.6 million residents increased by nearly 3 percent from 2012 to 2013.

Woman accused of eating weed in car
COCOA- The Florida Highway Patrol says a 33year-old DUI suspect ate approximately 11 grams of marijuana while in the back of a patrol car. Troopers say Tavish Kay Smith crashed her pickup truck June 13. Florida Today reports , Smith was arrested on DUI charges, her car was searched and troopers found a baggie of marijuana, which was placed

in the patrol car's center console.
Smith wiggled out of her handcuffs when the trooper wasn't looking and grabbed the marijuana bag. She ate most of it before returning the bag. When she scratched her nose, the trooper realized she was out of her handcuffs.
She told the trooper she didn't eat the pot, but video suggest otherwise. She now faces tampering-with-evidence charges in addition

to DUI.

Jacksonville police officer hit by car JACKSONVILLE - A police officer is recovering after being hit by a car other officers were trying to apprehend in a narcotics case. The incident happened Wednesday afternoon in Jacksonville. The Florida TimesUnion reports Officer Kreshnik "Nick" Isaraj was in the back of an

unmarked car when he stepped out of the vehicle and was hit by a car traveling in the opposite direction.
Officials say Isaraj was "pretty banged up" with cuts to the head. Officers caught up with the suspect and arrested him.
Shooting that killed 2 likely revenge or turf war

Fla. at bottom of list in funding home care

teen years after a landmark Supreme Court ruling on giving the disabled a choice to live outside institutions, Florida remains near the bottom in terms of progress. The 1999 Olmstead v. L.C. decision says unnecessarily segregating people in mental hospitals, nursing homes and other institutions amounts to discrimination. Advocates for the mentally ill, older people and the disabled cite the ruling in arguing for

home- and communitybased care.
Florida is ranked behind 46 other states and the District of Columbia in its allotment of Medicaid money to non-institutional care. It earmarked about 35 percent of Medicaid long-term care funding for home and community services in 2012, up from about 26 percent a decade ago but well below the national average.

Feds nix eagle penalties for California wind farm

FRESNO, Calif. - A California wind farm will become the first in the nation to avoid prosecution if eagles are injured or die when they run into the giant turning blades, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service said Thursday. The Shiloh IV Wind Project LLC, 60 miles east of San Francisco, will receive a special permit allowing up to five golden eagles to be accidentally killed over five years. Previously, such a violation could potentially draw criminal charges and discourage private investment in wind farms known for catching birds in their rotors. The permit will require the facility to take steps to prevent eagle injuries and deaths from electrocution by retrofitting 133 power poles. The permits are not required of wind farms, and federal prosecutors have only once filed criminal charges against a wind farm, in Wyoming. Agency Director Daniel Ashe said the permit encourages development of renewable energy while requiring the wind company to take steps to protect eagles from turbines and power lines. The move will help California reach its goal of producing onethird of its energy from re-

newable sources by 2020, he said.
"We can't solve the problem of eagle mortality at wind farms overnight," Ashe said in a statement. "But this common-sense solution merits the support of all who advocate for the long-term conservation of eagles." Under President Barack Obama, wind energy has exploded as a pollution-free energy source that can help reduce the greenhouse gases blamed for global warming. Michael Hutchins of the American Bird Conservancy said he believes the five-year permit for the California wind farm is reasonable, but he said the rapid expansion of wind energy has gotten ahead of the science and regulation to protect all types of birds and raptors. Too often, he said, wind farms are built in migratory patterns, near wetlands or over rodent populations. Birds on the hunt can become distracted by what's on the ground and fly into the rotors, Hutchins said. "Is it really green energy if it's going to kill hundreds of thousands of birds or bats each year?" he said. "The whole system needs a much harder look."
The government has offered five-year permits since 2009 to wind compa-

nies, and last year it added a 30-year permit, drawing a lawsuit this month from the conservancy, which argues that the government failed to evaluate the consequences and ensure it would not damage eagle populations.
An Associated Press in,vestigation in 2013 found that the Obama administration has charged oil companies for drowning birds in their waste pits, and power companies for electrocuting birds on power lines, but it has taken little if any action against wind-energy companies, shielding them from liability.
Shiloh IV Wind Project, a subsidiary of EDF Renewable Energy, is a 102-megawatt wind farm operating since 2012 and made up of 50 turbines in Solano County. Representatives of EDF Renewable did not immediately respond to requests for comment.
Shiloh is the first to obtain a permit, despite their being available for five years. Marie Strass-burger, a migratory bird specialist for the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, said that obtaining one requires a lengthy process, and because this is the first of its kind, officials have carefully crafted conservation plans with the wind company.

Huge advances for gay marriage in an eventful year

The Associated Press

One year ago, the U.S. Supreme Court issued a pair of landmark rulings, one striking down the statute that denied federal recognition to same-sex marriages and the other clearing the way for gay couples to wed legally in California.
In the 12 months since then, the ripple effects of those rulings have transformed the national debate over same-sex marriage, convincing many people on both sides that its spread nationwide is inevitable.
From the East Coast to the Midwest and the Pacific, seven more states legalized same-sex marriage, boosting the total to 19, plus Washington, D.C. The Obama administration moved vigorously to extend federal benefits to married gay couples. And in 17 consecutive court decisions, federal and state judges have upheld the right of gays to marry. Not a single ruling has gone the other way.
A look back at some of the notable developments since June 26, 2013:
On July 1, five days after the high court rulings, two men who had been partners since 1989 tried to obtain a marriage license at a courthouse in Norfolk, Virginia. Timothy Bostic and Tony London were turned down, and filed a lawsuit a few weeks later arguing that Virginia's treatment of gays and lesbians was unequal in depriving them of the many benefits of marriage.
Another gay couple was later added to the case, and in February a federal judge, Arenda L. Wright Allen, ruled in their favor, saying Virginia's ban on gay marriage was unconstitutional.
Moments after midnight Oct. 21, gay couples began exchanging vows in New Jersey as their state became the 14th to allow same-sex marriages. A state judge, in the aftermath of the U.S. Supreme Court decisions, had ruled in September that New Jersey's provisions for civil unions were not adequate to ensure equality for gay couples. The state's politically ambitious Republican governor, Chris Christie, had fought for years against gay marriage, but within hours of the first weddings, he dropped his still-pending appeal

In this June 26, 2013, file photo, gay-rights advocate Vin Testa waves a rainbow flag in front of the Supreme Court in Washington. That day, the U.S. Supreme Court issued a pair of landmark rulings, one striking down a law that denied federal recognition to same-sex marriages and the other clearing the way for gay couples to wed legally in California. In the 12 months since the Supreme Court issued these rulihigs, the ripple effects have transformed the national debate over same-sex marriage, prompting many people on both sides to conclude that its spread nationwide is inevitable.

of the court ruling. "The governor will do his constitutional duty and ensure his administration enforces the law," a statement from his office said. November
In the span of a week, the governors of Hawaii and Illinois signed laws passed by the legislature legalizing same-sex marriage.
In Hawaii, tourism officials looked ahead to the possibility of becoming a gay-wedding mecca. Some activists looked back, recalling that Hawaii was an early battleground in the gay-marriage debate.
The state Supreme Court had ruled in 1993 that gay couples should have marriage rights, triggering a backlash that included congressional passage of the Defense of Marriage Act in 1994. It was a key part of that act - forbidding the federal government from recognizing same-sex marriages - that the U.S. Supreme Court struck down a year ago.
In Illinois, Democratic Gov. Pat Quinn signed the marriage bill on a desk once used by President Abraham Lincoln. Among those speaking at the ceremony was state Comptroller Judy Baar

Topinka, a Republican. "History will show that we got it right on this one," she said. "I am available to be a flower girl, and I'll even waive the fee." December
New Mexico became the 17th state to legalize same-sex marriage Dec. 19, through a unanimous ruling by the state Supreme Court.
Some opponents discussed trying to overturn the ruling with a ballot measure, but that effort gained no traction. The Republican governor, Susana Martinez, urged New Mexicans to "respect one another in their discourse" and turn their focus *to other issues.
A day after that ruling, a federal judge in Utah created even bigger waves, striking down the ban on gay marriage that voters in the conservative state had approved in 2004. It was the first of more than dozen similar rulings to follow by judges in other states. U.S. District Judge Robert Shelby, a former Army combat engineer, said in his 53-page decision that Utah failed to show how allowing same-sex marriages would harm opposite-sex marriages in any way.

"In the absence of such evidence, the state's unsupported fears and speculations are insufficient to justify the state's refusal to dignify the family relationships of its gay and lesbian citizens," he wrote.
More than 1,000 gay and lesbian couples wed in Utah before Shelby's ruling was stayed. May
Late in the afternoon of May 9, a county circuit judge in Little Rock struck down Arkansas' 10year-old ban on gay marriages. A week passed before Judge Chris Piazza's ruling was stayed by the state Supreme Court, creating an opening in which more than 540 gay couples received marriage licenses - the first batch of gay weddings in the former Confederacy. In Oregon, U.S. District Judge Michael McShane threw out the state's same-sex marriage ban May 18. Oregon swiftly became the 18th state to allow gay marriage, since top government officials had refused to defend the ban.
The next day, on the other side of the country, U.S. District Judge John E. Jones III struck down Pennsylvania's marriage law.

"We are a better people than what these laws represent, and it is time to discard them into the ash heap of history," Jones wrote in his decision.
Republican Gov. Tom Corbett, though opposed to gay marriage, said he would not appeal, and Pennsylvania became the 19th state where gay couples could wed.
As the anniversary of the U.S. Supreme Court's marriage rulings approached, marriageequality lawsuits were pending in all 31 of the states that still barred gays from marrying. On Wednesday, a federal judge in Indiana struck down that state's ban.
And more notably, the first ruling was issued at the level of the federal appellate courts. A 2-1 decision from the 10th Circuit Court of Appeals agreed with Shelby that Utah's gay-marriage ban was unconstitutional. It's possible that in another year, the issue could be back before the U.S. Supreme Court
- with the justices facing a clear-cut choice on whether to rule that gay marriage must be allowed in every state.

Drink up, NYC: Ban on


sodas canned

The Associated Press

NEW YORK - Big sodas can stay on the menu in the Big Apple after New York state's highest court refused Thursday to reinstate the city's first-of-itskind size limit on sugary drinks. But city officials suggested they might be willing to revisit the supersize-soda ban. The Court of Appeals found that the city Board of Health overstepped its bounds by imposing a 16ounce cap on sugary beverages sold in restaurants, delis, movie theaters, stadiums and street carts. The appointed board trod on the policymaking turf of the elected City Council, the court said. "By choosing among competing policy goals, without any legislative delegation or guidance, the board engaged in lawmaking," the court wrote in a majority opinion. "... Its choices raise difficult, intricate and controversial issues of social policy." Indeed, debate over the soda-size cap pitted health officials who called it an innovative anti-obesity tool against critics who considered it unfair to businesses and paternalistic toward consumers. Even a' Court of Appeals judge, during arguments earlier this month, wondered aloud whether regulators would target triple-decker burgers next.
The American Beverage Association, which led the legal fight against the measure, welcomed Thursday's ruling against a measure it said would have "limited New Yorkers' freedom of choice." Curbing obesity should start "with education, not laws and regulation," spokesman Christopher Gindlesperger said. But city leaders signaled they might not give up the fight. Mayor Bill de Blasio

said the city was "actively reviewing all of its options to protect the health and well-being of out communities"; officials wouldn't immediately specify what those might be. The city hasn't said whether it plans to try to appeal, but the case doesn't raise federal issues that would make it a likely choice for the Supreme Court. City Council Speaker Melissa Mark-Viverito said in a statement that the big-soda ban would get a hearing if it were brought up in the council. It's unclear how any such measure might fare in a vote, as she and numerous other council members oppose it.
NewYorkers, meanwhile, greeted Thursday's ruling with mixed feelings."I think it's up to the individual" what size of soft drink to buy, said Constance Jong, a cashier in her 20s.
But Hazel Plunkett, a 51year-old fundraiser for a public health group, was disappointed that the regulation remains blocked. "I don'tinind the controversy over it. It's got to get people's attention," she said.
Soda has been under fire for years from health advocates, who say the beverages are uniquely harmful because people don't realize how much sugar they're guzzling. A 21-ounce. Coke, McDonald's medium size, has 200 calories and 55 grams of sugar, for instance. Amid the publicity, U.S. soda sales have dropped for nearly a decade. But consumption of other sugary beverages, such as sports drinks and energy drinks, has grown. Former Mayor Michael Bloomberg madethe soda ban a signal piece of is assertive public health agenda.
"Due to toddy's unfortunate ruling, more people

in New York City will die from obesity-related impacts," he said in a statement Thursday. A trial court struck down the measure days before it was to take effect last year.
Some eateries had already swapped out cups and adjusted menus to comply, and some proprietors decided to stick with the changes. But others were glad Thursday that they hadn't.
"I thought it was ridiculous" - and unfair, said midtown Manhattan cafe manager Young Shin, 30. The measure would have applied to his workplace, but not to bars and groceries under state regulation, including 7-Eleven, the home of the Big Gulp. Lawmakers and health advocates around the country. have proposed soda taxes in recent years, but none has succeeded. A California measure that would have slapped warning labels on sodas was recently defeated. Meanwhile, Coke and Pepsi have rolled out smaller cans and botties, some as little as 7.5 ounces.

i KRISTIE CLOUD/ FLORIDAN Jamel Johnson (1) jumps to attempt the shot Thursday afternoon in the game between Marianna and West Gadsden.


The Marianna Bulldogs took a pair of wins over the visiting West Gadsden Panthers on Thursday evening at Marianna High School, winning in a rout 67-45 before winning the nightcap 59-57 in overtime. Inthe firstgame, Marianna controlled the game from the outset, jumping out to a 7-2 edge after a three-pointer from Herman Williams and never relinquishing the lead.
Williams scored 10 of the Bulldogs' first 12 points, with Shaquarious Baker adding backto-back three-pointers before finding Deontre Rhynes for a basket inside to make it 20-9.

A pair of three-point plays by Rhynes, another by Jamel Johnson, and a bucket by Clifford Scott made it 31-18 Bulldogs at the halftime break. Marianna kept the Panthers at bay in the second half as well, with a driving' bucket by Jamel Johnson, three-pointers by Herman Williams and Anton Williams, and a driving basket by Baker making it a 41-25 game. The Bulldogs tacked on a 9-2 run shortly thereafter to blow the game open, as Anton Williams made a shot, Baker converted consecutive jumpers, and Rhynes scored inside off of a beautiful touch pass from Herman Williams to extend the

County teams wrap up summer at GHS

Derrick White goes for the layup for Graceville in a game last week in Poplar



Graceville High School will play host to the final big local basketball event this summer when Malone, Marianna, and Sneads join the Tigers for a full slate of games starting Saturday morning.
The games begin at 9 a.m. with Graceville taking on the Holmes County Blue Devils, followed at 9:45 a.m. by a big Jackson County clash between Marianna and Malone.
Sneads will take on Bay High at 10:30 a.m., with Malone facing Holmes County at 11:15 a.m., and Marianna vs. Bay at noon before the 12:45 p.m. finale between Graceville and Sneads. This will be the first time

all summer that Malone and Marianna and Graceville and Sneads play each other. "It's kind of odd because usually we're playing each other so much, but this summer that hasn't happened with us and Malone not playing in Marianna's league, so you've got all these in-county games after we haven't played each other all summer," Graceville coach Matt Anderson said Thursday. "I just tried to put people against other teams that they hadn't played against." Graceville is coming off of a two-day trip to Panama City for the Gulf Coast State 2014 Team camp that featured a 3-3 record, though the mediocre record wasn't indicative of quality of basketball the Tigers played, according to Anderson.

"I thought we played very well in the last -two losses (to Johnson, Ga., and Gainesville, Ga.) at Gulf Coast. I was not displeased at all with those games," he said. "That's how I want to end these last few games, just playing well together and becoming a stronger team. We've been working hard and getting better individually and as a team. I just hope we end up on a positive note and play well regardless of whether we win or lose."
The coach praised his players' commitment this summer, which he said stood in stark contrast to the way things went a year ago.
"I feel really good about it. We've had a lot more players

2014 FIFA World Cup

US falls to Germany, still qualifies for next round

The Associated Press

RECIFE, Brazil - Germany's Thomas Mueller stayed on track to retain his Golden Boot title at the World Cup by scoring his fourth goal of the tournament in the 1-0 victory over the United States.
U.S. coach Juergen IKlinsmann wasn't too upset. His team also qualified for the knockout stage after Portugal beat Ghana 21 in the other final match in Group G, which saw both teams eliminated.
Mueller scored five times in South Africa in 2010 and scored his fourth on Friday in a rainsoaked Recife.

With two wins and a draw, Germany topped the group with seven points, while the U.S. progressed with four. Portugal also finished with four points but the U.S. had a better goal difference. "We controlled the match and did not allow any chances until late in the match," Germany coach Joachim Loew said. "We failed to score a second goal that would have settled the issue earlier."
Mueller scored in the 55th minute with a side-footed shot from the edge of the area as tropical downpours drenched the Arena Pernambuco. He now has nine goals in nine World Cup games.

"We clearly dominated the match and we played not a bad game against a top-fit American team," Mueller said. "I finally scored a pretty goal. I manage it every now and then. We still have big targets ahead of us." Germany, a three-time champion, now travels to Porto Alegre to play the runner-up in Group H on June 30.
Both teams knew before kickoff that a draw would see them through, but neither held back. The game pitted Loew against his good friend and predecessor Juergen Klinsmann, now in charge.Qf the U.S. team.

Ronaldo earns Portugal win vs. Ghana, both out

Uruguay's Luis Suarez holds his teeth after biting Italy's Giorgio Chiellini's shoulder during the Group D match between Italy and Uruguay at the Arena das Dunas in Natal, Brazil on Tuesday. On Thursday, FIFA banned Suarez for 9 games and 4 months for biting his opponent at the World Cup.

FIFAbans Suarez for

4 months for biting

The Associated Press .

RIO DE JANEIRO - Luis Suarez exits the World Cup with one of the longest bans in tournament history, and his reputation once again in tatters. The Uruguay forward, widely regarded as one of the bestplayersin theworld, was banned by FIFA from all football for four months on Thursday for biting an Italian opponent in an inci-' dent that marred the team's victory and progression to the second round. It's the third time- he's served a suspension for biting an opponent - after similar incidents at both Ajax in the Dutch league and Liverpool in England
- and the second straight World Cup where Suarez exits in disgrace. The four-month ban will sideline Suarez him for the first two months of Liverpool's season. He was also suspended for Uruguay's next nine matches, which extends beyond the four months and rules him out of next year's Copa America, where his team is the defending champion. The

Uruguayan football federation said it would appeal. Aside from Diego Maradona's 15-month suspension for a failed drug test at the 1994 tournament, it's the longest ban handed out to a player at the World Cup. FIFA also fined Suarez 100,000 Swiss francs ($112,000).
Suarez bit the left shoulder defender Giorgio Chiellini on Tuesday in Natal during Uruguay's 1-0 win over Italy, an incident that went unpunished by the referee but was witnessed by fans around theworld on TV Given Suarez's previous biting incidents, the images went viral immediately. "Such behavior cannot be tolerated on any football pitch andinparticular not at a FIFAWorld Cup, when the eyes of millions of people are on the stars on the field," Claudio Sulser, chairman of the FIFA disciplinary committee, said in a statement. The Uruguayan federation was preparing an urgent appeal, as Suarez headed home. FIFA even barred him staying with teammates ahead of their round-of-16 game against

Colombia on Saturday in Rio de Janeiro. Suarez scored both gals in Uruguay's 2-1 win over England, aperformance that further enhanced a reputation that had gradually been rebuilt following a 10-game suspension for biting a Premier League opponent last May, and an eight-game ban for racially abusing an opponent in 2011. Suarez was voted ,the 'English league's best player last season after a campaign void of any disciplinary issues. By also banning Suarez from all football activities, FIFAalsoprohibitedSuarez from entering a World Cup stadium. He cannot train with Liverpool until the ban ends in late October. "Hopefully he will realize now that behavior of this type will not be tolerated under any circumstances," said FIFA vice president Jim Boyce of Northern Ireland. The ban includes Liverpool's first three Champions League games in the five-time European champion's return after a five-year absence. Suarez will also miss the first nine Premier League matches.

The Associated Press

BRASILIA, Brazil - Cristiano Ronaldo finally made his mark at the World Cup
- but it came too late to spare Portugal an early exit from Brazil. The world player of the year broke his scoring drought at the tournament with an 80th-minute winner in Portugal's 2-1 victory over Ghana on Thursday. That result, however, left the Portuguese level on four points with United States in Group G but with an inferior goal difference to the second-place Americans, who lost 1-0 to Germany in Recife. Ghana also was eliminated, finishing bottom of the group. "We knew we had to score three goals and were depending on the result of the Germany game and we couldn't do that," Ronaldo said after his most lively performance of the tournament. "We deserved more, but that's football. We are leaving with our heads held high."
Ronaldo barely celebrated after slamming home his goal with his left foot, giving Portugal its first win after a 4-0 loss to Germany and 2-2 draw with the U.S.
By that time, the Portuguese still needed a three-goal swing to move above the Americans and even though Ronaldo ws presented with two more great chances in injury time at Estadio Nacional, his team was always going to fall short.
"We created many opportunities but we could not finish them," said Ronaldo, who was voted man of the match in a bittersweet ending to the World Cup. Ghana captain Asamaoh Gyan's 57th-

minute header canceled out an own goal scored by teammate John Boye in the 31st, and at that stage it was the African side that was closer to'qualifying.
A 2-1 victory would have put Ghanaians through but Majeed Waris' headed chance that he planted wide of the post in the 60th was the only genuine opening they created before Ronaldo's sucker-punch.
The result brought to an end a typically eventful few weeks in Brazil for the Ghanaians, who were part of thrilling games against the United States and Germany before their campaign ended in turmoil on and off the pitch. Their players took to the field in the Brazilian capital amid a dispute with the country's football federation over alleged unpaid World Cup bonuses. Adding to the chaos, two of the team's star players - Sulley Muntari and KevinPrince Boateng - were booted' out of the squad hours before Thursday's kickoff for disciplinary reasons. "I don't think it had an impact on the game," said Ghana coach Kwesi Appiah, who confirmed that his players received their appearance-fee payments before kickoff as requested. "We had our chances but couldn't take them."
It was perhaps no surprise that Ghana delivered its most subdued display of the tournament, ensuring Ronaldo was given plenty of time and space to wreak havoc.
If his finishing had been anywhere close to the standard he delivers week in, week out for Real Madrid, Portu- gal may even have extended its stay in Brazil - at least for a few more days.

Ghana throws Muntari, Boateng off World Cup squad before game

The Associated Press

BRASILIA, Brazil - Ghana threw Sulley Muntari and Kevin-Prince Boateng out of its World Cup squad for disciplinary reasons on Thursday, plunging the team into further chaos just hours it was eliminated from the tournament in a 2-1 loss to Portugal. Just a day after resolving a possible player mutiny overWorld Cupbonus payments, the Ghana Football Association released two separate statements saying two of the country's stars had been "suspended ... indefinitely from the Black Stars with immediate effect."
Muntari was suspended "in the wake of his unprovoked physical attack on an executive committee member of the GFA and a management member of

the Black Stars, Mr. Moses Armah" on Tuesday, one statement read.
The other statement said Boateng was dropped from the squad because of "vulgar verbal insults targeted at coach Kwesi Appiah" during a training session this week.
"Boateng has since showed no remorse for his actions which has resulted in the decision," the statement added.
Appiah played down the impact of the two absentees in Thursday's loss to Portugal.
'At this level, you look at the team, not one player, Syou always haveto look at it like that," Appiah said. "The incidents happened some few days ago ... I don't think it had an impact on the game."
Boateng, who plays for German club Schalke, told

Ghana's Sulley Muntari celebrates after his team scored during the Group G match between Germany and Ghana at the Arena Castelaw in Fortaleza, Brazil on Saturday.

German newspaper Sport Bild that he accepted his suspension and wished his teammates well for Thursday's game against Portugal - "but no one should think that I insulted the coach or did anything wrong."Boateng said he and Muntari had been jok-

ing with each other during training Wednesday. The coach asked why they, were laughing, and then sent Boateng to the dressing room, he added. "After training I went to the coach and asked him if he had a minute for me. I asked him what he had against me," Boateng was

quoted as saying. "Then he started shouting at me." Ghana, a quarterfinalist in2010, neededtobeatPortugal in Brasilia on Thursday to stand any chance of reaching the second round from Group G after picking up one point from its first two games.
However, Ronaldo's 80thminute goal earned Portugal victory and left Ghana bottom of the group. Muntari was suspended for the Portugal match anyway after collecting two yellow cards. Ghana's World Cup campaign was already in turmoil following a row over appearance-fee payments that squad members had been promised but had not yet received, heading to Brasilia for their final match.
The country's cashstrapped federation was

forced to ask FIFA for an advance on the $8 million prize money it is guaranteed from playing at the World Cup to pay outstanding debts to players. But the world's governing body said, Thursday that the issue had been solved and that Ghana's players no longer required advance payments from FIFA.
"What the players requested was paid to them," said Appiah, who said Wednesday that a plane carrying cash sent by Ghana's president was being flown to the Brazilian capital.
World Cup prize money
- which ranges in Brazil from $8 million for being knocked out in the group stage to $35 million for winning the title - is normally paid after the tournament.

World Cup Roundup

Aguero undergoing tests, fate uncertain
BELO HORIZONTE, Brazil- A team official says Argentina striker Sergio Aguero is undergoing medical tests for a left thigh injury and that it's still unclear whether he can continue playing in the World Cup. Argentina spokesman Andres Ventura denied a report by Argentine newspaper Clarin on Thursday saying Aguero has been ruled out of the tournament because of a torn thigh muscle. Ventura told The Associated Press that the report Awas "inaccurate" and that

medical exams had not yet been completed. He said more information was expected after Argentina's practice in Belo Horizonte later Thursday. Aguero limped off the pitch in the first half of Argentina's 3-2 win over Nigeria on Wednesday. Coach Alejandro Sabella said he was substituted because of a muscle problem.
Argentina plays Switzerland in the second round on Tuesday.

Nigeria's Babatunde out of Wold Cup RIO DE JANEIRO

- Nigeria midfielder Michael Babatunde was ruled out of the World Cup on Thursday with a broken arm after being hit by a teammate's shot in the group game against Argentina.
The Nigeria Football Federation and coach Stephen Keshi said Thursday that Babatunde had successful surgery on his fractured right wrist but will need at least three weeks to recover. The teammate whose shot struck Babatunde, fellow midfielder Ogenyi Onazi, joked about the incident in a statement from the NFE "I swear that was a sure

goal if not for (his) hand." Onazi said. He added that he wished Babatunde a "quick recovery." Babatunde started Nigeria's last two group games, a 1-0 irn over Bosnia and Wednesday's 3-2 loss to Argentina. He got hurt in that game when Onazi's powerful second-half shot hit him on the right hand at an awkward angle, breaking his wrist. Keshi also said that forwardVictor Moses had been struggling with a muscle strain, which was the reason the Liverpool forward had not played a major role in Nigeria's World Cup campaign so far.

Belgium beats South Korea, wins Group H

Algerian players celebrate with fans after the Group H match against Russia at the Arena da Baixada in Curitiba, Brazil on Thursday.

Algeria into 2nd round

afterdraw with Russia

The Associated Press

CURITIBA, Brazil - Algeria has qualified for the World Cup knockout stages for the first time, with Islam Slimani's headed equalizer giving his team a 1-1 draw against Russia on Thursday and enough competition points to reach the second round. Algeria placed second in Group H behind lelgium with four points, meaning it will meet Germany in the Round of 16.
The victory prompted mass celebrations on the pitch among the players, and had coachVahid Halilhodzic shaking his head with disbelief.

Russia, needing a win to advance, went on the attack from the start and dominated the first half with its intricate and swift passing movements through midfield. The Russians took the lead as early as the 6th minute when Alexander Kokorin powerfully headed in a left-foot cross from Dmitry Kombarov. Slimani's. 60th-minute equalizer came after Russia goalkeeper Igor Akinfeev failed to catch a swinging left-foot free kick from Yacine Brahimi. That was the second costly error that Akinfeev has made in the tournament for Russia. However, there were indications on the TV broad-

cast that a green laser was being shone toward the goalkeeper just before the free kick was taken.
Russia coach Fabio Capello later said his goalkeeper was
- "blinded by the laser beam."
Brahimi had troubled the Russia defense consistently until his substitution late in the game. Along with midfielder Sofiane Feghouli, he helped neutralize much of Russia's attacking intent through the second half.
Before Algeria's equalizer, Russia had chances to double its lead, notably in the 26th minute when Oleg Shatov weaved through the Algeria midfield but his. right-foot shot drifted wide of the Algeria post.

The Associated Press

SAO PAULO - Reduced to 10 men for over half the match, Belgium still beat South Korea 1-0 on Thursday to finish atop of Group H and eliminate the last Asian team from the World Cup. With a late goal yet again, Belgium made the difference in the 78th minute when defender JanVertonghen followed up a shot from teenage striker Divock Origi and tapped in the rebound past goalkeeper Kim Seung-gyu. "We knew all games were going to be tough," said Belgium coach Marc Wilmots. "But even with 10 men, we still pushed forward. These guys are really hungry."
After three narrow victories and precious little beautiful play, Belgium will now play the United States in Salvador on Tuesday. And along with Iran, Japan and Australia, South Korea departed as the last team from the Asian federation, all in the first round.

Algeria finished second in the group after a 1-1 draw with Russia - a result that meant South Korea needed a fourgoal win to advance. While that never looked likely, South Korea did not go without a strong fight, landing the ball on Belgium's crossbar on. the hour-mark and testing standout goalie Thibaut Courtois with several shots afterward. Yet even with a man up, the Koreans could never pressure Belgium enough to find an opening and paid the price on a counterattack.
Belgium promised to play with flair in this tournament but is proving that it's still a master at grinding out results. Having a goalie like Courtois does make it easier, especially as its defense was missing injured starters Vincent Kompany and Thomas Vermaelen. But the Belgians also proved they sorely lacked the creative skills of Kevin De Bruyne and Eden Hazard, who were on the bench from the start.

Draw forces French back to basics at World Cup

The Associated Press

- France's misfiring performance against Ecuador took some gloss off what had been a strong start from a team being touted as one of the outsiders to win the World Cup. Although Wednesday's 0-0 draw may have worked in France's favor in terms of pressure - by tempering the rising expectation level after emphatic wins against Honduras and Switzerland - the players need to be more clinical in front of goal against Nigeria in their round-of-16 match.
"We'll simply have to put our chances away," striker Olivier Giroud said. "We were a bit hit and miss but we know what we can do." France was much more miss than hit, failing to score from 20 shots- 13 of

France's Olivier Giroud applauds his supporters after the Group E match between Ecuador and France in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil on Wednesday.

them on target - with Giroud himself squandering a late close-range header from a few yards out. Coach Didie Deschamps' decision to make six changes from the side which beat Switzerland 52 resulted in a disjointed performance against Ecuador. But it also meant

that the regulars left on the bench - notably in defense - will be well rested before facing Nigeria in what are likely to be hot and testing conditions. "We're going to play at 1 p.m. We're going to have to adapt fo the rhythm," Deschamps said, explaining that France will move for-.

ward its customary late-afternoon training sessions to lunchtime in order to be better, prepared for Monday's game.
They will need to be given how Nigeria tested Argentina in Wednesday's 3-2 loss, with 21-year-old forward Ahmed Musa scoring twice.
-'Nigeria is a solid,. wellorganized team," he said. "They defend well and they have a very good goalkeeper, quality and speed up front."
Musa's pace caused problems for Argentina's defense, but at least France now has prior warning. Deschamps' decision to rest both his first-choice fullbacks: right back Mathieu Debuchy and left back Patrice Evra - may well prove to have been tactically astute, as they will need fresh legs to keep up with Musa and Emman-

uel Emenike, who is a bustling, powerful forward. Victory against Nigeria at the Estadio Nacional in Brasilia will 'send France into a potential quarterfinal against Germany, the sort of speculative talk Deschamps doesn't like. "I'm extremelyhappywith what we've done up until now, but it's not over yet," he said. "There's no point looking too far ahead." The World Cup has sprung some surprises so far - France's positive start being one of them. Defending champion Spain and European Championship . runner-up Italy are already eliminated, as is Cristiano Ronaldo's Portugal. Wayne Rooney's England, meanwhile, didn't even win a game.
Deschamps feels proud of what France has done so far. Understandably, given

the sorry state the team used to be in, and how far France's reputation fell at the 2010 World Cup, where the players went on a training strike.
"Some big teams have gone outbutwe're stillhere. It's been a quality World Cup and you needed to be at youf best to qualify," he said. "It's great that our fans are euphoric. There were more than 10,000 of them (at the Maracana stadium on Wednesday). People need to feel this support, this fervor. They want to encourage the team."
Deschamps is sweating on the fitness of center half Manadou Sakho, who limped off with a thigh injury for the second successive match. But Laurent Koscielny's composed pberformance against Ecuador's quick counterattacks gives Deschamps some decent backup.

The two coaches smiled as they shook hands and patted each other on the shoulder after the match. Klinsmann warmly embraced the German players.
Germany's goal came after a corner by Mesut Ozil. U.S. goalkeeper Tim Howard did well to punch out a header by Per Mertesacker but pushed- the ball into the path of Mueller who rifled a shot inside the far post from the edge of the penalty area.

The United States had a chance to level the match in stoppage time, but Alejandro Bedoya's low shot inside the box was swept away by the sliding Mario Goetze, a late substitute.
The Americans won a corner but Clint Dempsey's header at the far post went high.
Loew reshuffled his lineup by bringing in forward Lukas Podolski for Goetze and midfielder' Sebastian Schweinsteiger for Sami Khedira.
Center back Geoff Cameron was replaced in the U.S. lineup by Omar Gonzalez.

Germany was quicker off the mark and Howard intercepted a low cross from Podolski before Michael Bradley made a good clearance and Gonzalez defended well to deny Mueller a shot from close range.
Howard's 103th cap was a record for a U.S. goalkeeper and he did well to stop Ozil's shot in the 35th minute.

Referee Ravshan Irmatov of Uzbekistan collided accidentally with Jermaine Jones in the 28th and the American midfielder went down hard but got up. The referee shrugged off the challenge.
Miroslav Klose came on for Podolski at the start of the second half but failed to score and grab sole possession of the World Cup scoring record that he now shares with Brazil's Ronaldo at 15.
Ozil beat Gonzalez to a cross at the start of the second half but sent his header high, while Klose connected with' a cross from Schweinsteiger but was off balance and did not get off a clean header.

We've gotten a little better, we've still got miles to go.
"We've got to work on being a better passing team. We turn the ball over a little too much. It's not as much

as last year, but turnovers probably cost us our last game at Gulf Coast. There are just some little things where we're not quite good enough yet."

Annie's Mailbox

Dear Annie: Our son is married to a beautiful woman from India, who also happens to be bipolar. They have an adorable 16-month-old boy, and we love them all so much. While our daughterin-law's mother had a problem with her marrying outside their culture, they now love our son as their own. I understand quite a bit about mental illness, as I suffer from depression, and my mother was bipolar. Before she was diagnosed, I was the target of her rants over the years. Now, it seems that I am the brunt of my daughter-in-law's rants. She doesn't discuss things that bother her. She simply goes off on tirades, with nonstop talking, and recently she called me a terrible name. I am so deeply sickened over this, I can't even begin to tell you.
My son and I have always been close, and I have no desire to interfere in their niarriage. I help orily when asked. My son is also close to his sister, who also

has been the target of his wife's rages. My son knew about his wife's bipolar disease before they marftied, and when she takes proper medications and sees her psychiatrist, she is better. I understand that sometimes the extremes of personality still come through, in spite of medication. My question is: Can people with this illness filter what comes out of their mouths? Can they learn not to insult and lash out at the people closest to them? Or is that impossible to control?

Dear Sad: This must be a terribly difficult situation for you. It is possible that your daughter-in-law simply needs to have her medications adjusted, and you might suggest that to your son. In the meantime, please contact the National Alliance on Mental Illness ( and ask about their Family-to-Family program and other resources.


Gary Player said, "A good golfer has the determination to win and the patience to wait for the breaks." At the bridge table, the break in one suit can influence how declarer plays. In this example deal, South is in four spades. West cashes his three top clubs, then shifts to the heart three. How should declarer continue after taking East's queen with his ace? North, despite having a balanced hand, raises to two spades with three good trumps because he is very weak in an unbid suit. If his side belongs in three no-trump, probably South should be the declarer. And here, when South jumps to four spades, he ought to have at least a five-card suit so that he can guarantee an eight-card fit.
South has nine top tricks: five spades, one heart and three diamonds. He needs to establish a fourth diamond trick. This will be easy if diamonds are breaking 3-3, but if they are 4-2, declarer will have to ruff a diamond in his hand, draw trumps and be in the dummy to cash the last two diamonds.
The key question is: How are the trumps dividing?
South cashes his spade queen, then

plays a spade to dummy's king. If they split 4-1, declarer will have to draw trumps and hope that the diamonds divide 3-3. Here, though, he next plays a diamond to his ace, returns a diamond to dummy's queen, ruffs a diamond high in his hand, leads a spade to dummy's ace (drawing West's last trump), and cashes the diamond king and six for his contract.
