City ofMarianna OKs fire assessment, sets rates
New charge starts
BY ANGIE COOK
MARIANNA - Utility customers in the City of Marianna will soon see a new charge on their
monthly bills. The money collected from it will help fund fire services that the municipality provides to its residents.
City commissioners this week approved rates for a fire assessment. Monthly, the rate is $4 per for
residential customers (gradually increasing to $10 a month over the next three years) and $.0014 per square foot for nonresidential (gradually increasing to $.0034 over the next three years). On Tuesday, commissioners Paul Donofro
Jr., Rico Williams, Travis Ephriam and Allan Ward II voted unanimously to adopt the rates. Commissioner John Roberts was absent.
To study the city fire services and propose rates, Marianna officials employed the services of
Government Services Group Inc., the same firm that helpedJackson County commissioners when that board had a similar measure under consideration (the proposed ordinance died without making it to a vote). City Manager Jim Dean
calls the assessment, which puts some of the burden directly at the feet of those who use them, a more equitable way to fund fire services. And those. who have never needed to call on

U.S. 71 Thursday in Marianha. Green has been putting up flags for the Marianna
Kiwanis Club for 20 years. The club rents the flags by the year and area businesses pay the Kiwanis club to bring the flags to their location and set them out. The flags will remain on display until July 5, at which time area Boy Scout troops will retrieve them and return them to the Kiwanis club in exchange for payment. The Kiwanis club uses the money from the businesses for scholarships and to pay the Boy Scouts.
Growers take the lion's share of'big melon' honors
Several Jackson County residents made a good showing in'the "big melon" contest held at the Washington County Watermelon Festival in Chipley last weekend. Mike Moneyham of the Shady Grove community in Grand Ridge shared the top honor with a grower from another county - both produced melons that weighed in at 49 pounds. His second-largest melon, a 47pounder, won third place as well. He hasn't received his $75 prize money or ribbons yet, but the win is satisfying in itself, he said. He also wanted to acknowledge that he couldn't have done it without his business partner in the melon enterprise, Chris Stone. The contest rules, he explained, would not allow two names to be attached to the entries but Stone

played a big part in nurturing the crop that turned out the two winning specimens this year. Moneyham is proud that they grew their prize-winners the old-fashioned way. In his eight-acres of watermelons, you'll find none growing on plastic, and none of them were shot with nitrogen blasts that some growers use to artificially spur growth. "I grow them on the dirt," Moneyham said. "For me, it's the joy of doing it the old fashioned way. Pl'stic makes a mess and it's expensive, too. I think growing them the way we do is the reason we grow good and big stuff. We don't shoot chemicals into them, and just use a limited amount of fungicide, insecticide and fertilizer." With the help of family members, Moneyham and Stone are able to harvest

Blakely Tye and Aven Tyus, grandchildren of Mike Moneyham, sit on one of the watermelons their grandfather grew and entered into the Watermelon Festival's "big melon" contest last weekend in Chipley. Moneyham's largest melon, weighing in at 49 pounds, shared championship honors with another of the same weight grown by another contestant from a different county. Moneyham's 47-pound entry took third place.

Gabriel Peal (left), 8, his brother Damien Peal, 10, and neighbor Lois Jones talk about the mystery balloonsthat landed in her yard Monday. Holmes County District 5 School Board candidate Drew Kriser got a kick out of learning where his runaway balloons wound up.
BY DEBORAH BUCKHALTER
When some of his helium-filled campaign balloons escaped last Sunday, Holmes County School Board candidate Drew Kriser figured he'd never know their fate. But on Monday they finally landed, more than 50 miles from where he'd had them filled in Geneva, Alabama.
They wound up in a big front yard on CherOkee Street in Marianna.
Lois Jones first saw a big, light green bag on the front edge of her lawn early that morning, but she was busy and didn't immediately go inspect the bulky package. By the time she decided she better wander up and take a closer look, the bag was decidedly flatter than it had looked earlier in the day.
She opened it and found several royal-blue balloons with white ribbons attached. Each had burst, and each was stamped with the words "Drew Kriser for School Board District 5."
Without a county identified on the message, Jones wondered where they came from. She checked with the Jackson County Supervisor of Elections and found out there was
no local candidate by that name.
SThe mystery fired her curiosity and imagination. Living as she does on the Chipola River, she wondered whether a wind current could have brought them meandering down from the north through the open skies above that waterway. She wondered how they got away, and just how far they'd drifted. And when she showed the bag of balloons to the three young people across the street, theygot curious, too. Jones talked about it for a while with 8-year-old Gabriel Peal, his big brother Damien Peal, 10, and their little sister, 4-yearold Tessa Davis. The boys, students in the Jackson County school system's Project Venture for gifted children, offered up various theories. Whoever had been holding them might have gotten sweaty hands in the midst of a Southern heat wave and simply lost their grip on the ribbons, Damien guessed. Jones, an amateur expert on water and air currents and such, offered up her theories, too.
Davis wasn't all that interested in the discussion;

National Rural Electric Cooperative Youth Tour
Brad Pearson of Clarksville and Anthony Severson of Graceville were among nearly 1,600 high 'school students from 43 states who participated in the National Rural Electric Cooperative Youth Tour held June 14-19, in Washington, D.C. Pearson and Severson were sponsored by West Florida Electric Cooperative and represented Altha School (Pearson) and Graceville High School (Severson).
While in Washington, the students learned firsthand what it is like to be involved in politics, how-our government operates and about how. and why electric co-ops were formed. One highlight of the trip included meeting their elected representatives in the U.S. House and Senate. They toured Arlington National Cemetery, the Capitol, and Mount Vernon. Students also visited various monuments and memorials including the Vietnam, Jefferson, Lincoln, Roosevelt and more. While in D.C., they algo enjoyed the UJ.S. Marine Corps Band Sunset Parade; a boat cruise and dance on the Potomac River; and ended their trip by seeing "The Lion King" musical at the Kennedy Center. This year marked the Electric Cooperative Youth Tour's 50th anniversary. In 1964, the National Rural Electric Cooperative Association began coordinating joint activities among state delegations and suggested that co-op representatives from each state arrange to be in Washington, D.C. during Youth Tour week. The first year of the coordinated tour included about 400 teens from 12 states. As word spread, the program grew and grew and grew to what it is today.WFEC has participated

Thirty-one students represented electric cooperatives from around Florida on the National Rural Electric Cooperative Youth Tour June 14-19 in Washington, D.C.
in the Youth Tour program since 1979, sending two students to our nation's capitol each year since. The Youth Tour program is open to all high school juniors whose parents or guardians are members of West Florida Electric Cooperative. Each high school within WFEC's service area selects a representative for the State Youth Tour in the fall of each year. The selected representatives then go on to compete for the two slots available for the National Youth Tour. If you will be a junior during the 2014-2015 school year, see your school's guidance counselor for more information about the Youth Tour or contact WFEC Youth Tour Coordinator, Candace Croft at ccroft@ westflorida.coop.

Medal of Honor Recipient Ira Hough
Among us and unknown to the populous, in a plot of ground called Salem Methodist Church Cemetery in Northern Jackson County, lies the remains of Ira Hough. In doing surveys of Jackson County cemeteries, notably identifying American soldiers, both Confederate and Union, and with the help of WPA cemetery records, though somewhat antiquated, and the Internet, this soldier's resting place was located.
Although there is a Sons of Confederate Veterans organization, Theophilus West, M.D., Camp 1346 in Marianna, and a retired
United States Air Force veteran, it was felt this veteran deserved some recognition, especially in observance of July 4.

First Baptist Church in Orlando 2014 Mission Team at BCF.
FBC Orlando mission team at BCF
Special to the Floridan
The faculty, students and staff at The Baptist College of Florida in Graceville are exceedingly grateful to the group of kindhearted and dedicated volunteers who came from First Baptist Church in Orlando and sacrificed their vacation time and resources to serve on the BCF campus.
The mission team from Orlando has made the trip to Graceville every summer for the last 13 years, arriving early and ready to work as soon as their feet hit the ground. This year, more than 100 adults and children made up the extraordinary.team that arrived on Father's Day. The group was very diverse, ranging in age from 7 months to 93 years. For four days, members split up into teams working on different tasks all over the BCF campus. The list of accomplishments at the end of the week was incredible, including pressure washing, adding and replacing handrails, replacing warped wood, prepping and laying tile in five different buildings, remodeling the entrance to one office, demolishing the ord science lab, removing a floor, remodeling closets in a classroom, and painting four apartments, 23 dorm rooms and bath-

rooms, a married housing duplex, entrance signs and a fence. Team members also removed a concrete slab, cabinets, a water heater, floor tiles, electrical lines, gas lines, water lines,
-a chainflink fence and rails, as well as removed and trimmed shrubs and cut down dead trees.
Orlando's "family oriented mission team" was able to enjoy several fun activities while serving on the BCF campus. For example, during the mornings, all of the children participated in
"Graceville Bible School."' Their activities wete held in the BCF Weliness Center and led by several of the team members in the, group.
Kids of all ages were given the opportunity to ride the BCF conference bicycle which seats seven people and presents a challenging bike-riding experience with everyone peddling at the same time facing towards the center. Adding to festivities, BCF President Thomas A. Kinchen and First Lady
Ruth Ann hosted a barbecue at their home in honor. and appreciation for the teams' efforts and hard work.
"It was four days of work and sweat, sore muscles, good food, and lots of fun and laughter," team leaders and coordinators Jim and Pat Wortham said.
According to BCF staff members, ,the Orlando mission team brought new life and excitement to the campus that had been unusually quiet since spring graduation. Each year, the hard work and camps improvements completed by these servafit volunteers save the college enormous resources that can be spent on sending more students on missions and provide scholarships to train those called to "go."
In an appreciation letter that the Wortham's sent to all of the Orlando team, they stated, "The team grew this year, and the children and young people saw your example of serving others, and the college and the students greatly benefitted from it all."
Seeing all of the improvements and witnessing such a large group of volunteers, including several generations in multiple families, working together for the gloryof the Lord is not only encouraging but inspiring.
The Rev. Tyler Ford, his wife, Kristy, and sons, Zack and Jake.

immunization before entering the seventh grade and will not be allowed to begin school without proof of immunization. The immunization is available at the Health Department
and offered free of charge to students.
Although Menactra (Meningococcal Conjugate Vaccine) is not required, most colleges do require the immunization in
order to register. HPV (Human Papilomavirus) also is not required but recommended for those' students ages 11-18. We encourage parents to have their students immunized.
Please feel free to call the Department of Health in Jackson County at 526-2412 for further information about these vaccines or to schedule your appointment.

the fire department for help may still benefit. Ideally, Dean said, if the monies are used to improve city fire services, the city could earn a better ISO rating (currently at a 4 on a scale of 1 to 10, 1 being the best), which is
a figure some companies use to determine insurance rates for property owners.
Annually, the city fire department's budget is roughly $1.2 million, .but in its first year, the newly adopted fire assessment may only yield $200,000 to go toward that.
And a portion of the assessment revenues,
perhaps $25,000 the first year, Dean said, will likely be set aside in a restricted account, for the sole purpose 'of equipment upgrades.
The rest will go to the city fire department. Dean says the new charge will begin appearing on customers' November utility bill.

The footage, they allege, shows Williams walking around the store wearing a neon yellow T-shirt, looking in the windows, and returning to his truck to retrieve a second neon yellow T-shirt which he then wrapped around his face. He also picked up a pry tool at that time, investigators allege.

The cigarettes were worth about $140, officials said. The events took place within a roughly 20-minute period, beginning just after 2 i.m. on June 21. Investigators interviewed Williams about the matter on July 2 and he denied involvement in the theft. When his truck was searched, investigators found two neon-yellow Tshirts and a pair of black gloves with light-colored fingertips and yellow writing on the'wrists. The descriptions of those items match those seen in the surveillance video, as described in the complaint.

In this photo taken Wednesday, Larry Murphree, 73, stands in his garage next to an upsidedown American flag in Jacksonville. The Air Force veteran hangs the flag that way in protest of his condo association's decision to fine him for sticking a tiny flag in a flowerpot on his porch. Homeowners are permitted to display a flag at The Tides Condominium at Sweetwater, but it must be in accord with specific rules. The flag violates the community's "flowerpot ordinance:" which says "contents of planters are limited to maintained foliage," court documents show. "They've got to be stopped, and I'm going to stop them:'"he said."I'vejust dug in my heels:'
Tiny flag creates big
stir for Florida retiree
The Associated Press
JACKSONVILLE - A tiny American flag stuck between bright-purple flowers on a Jacksonville retiree's porch has, become a tempest in a teapot at a Florida condominium community. Like many planned communities, The Tides Condominium at Sweetwater - home to 73year-old Larry Murphree
- has strict rules about how one properly displays Christmas lights, parks a car and even flies Old Glory.
After previous objections by the condo association, Murphree festooned the inside of his garage with Christmas lights when his outside display was deemed improper.
He moved his guests' cars when the association complained- about how they were parked..
But a request to remove his 17-by-12-inch flag from a flowerpot on his porch proved to be the last straw for the Air ,Force veteran. "They want everything just so," he said about the condo association. "They've got to be stopped, and I'm going to stop them. I've just dug in my heels." Murphree's tiny flag violates the community's "flowerpot ,ordinance," which says that "contents of planters are limited to maintained foliage" only, documents show. Homeowners at The Tides are. perrhitted to display flags, but it must be done in accordance with specific condo rules.
The flags must be in flag brackets and hung so they are even with the home's address plate.
"We have established rules- that conform with the U.S. Code and Florida statutes regarding flag etiquette, and we encourage residents to fly American flags in accordance with the state and national standards," the homeowners association's lawyers said in a statement.
Strict enforcement of HOA rules is key to keeping communities looking nice and property values high, said Frank
Rathbun, spokesman for Commupity Associations Institute in Falls Chuirch, Va., an industry trade association.
"We all respect this gentleman's service to our country, but good deeds should not enable somebody to break the established rules," Rathbun said.
"If you make one exception for a veteran with a flag, then you'll have to do it for someone who wants to build a treehouse above the property line for their kids, or for someone with a strong desire to paint their house a different color."
The,- tidily dressed, silver-haired ,Murphree's battle over the diminutive flag dates to 2012, when he filed a federal lawsuit over the matter.
That lawsuit- argued that the association was violating his free-speech rights and' the ' 2005 Freedom to Display the American Flag Act, which prohibits homeowners associations from re-. stricting flag flying. The two sides settled that suit, and Murphree said he made no money - he just wanted to keep the flag in his flowerpot. He thought -the matter'was settled until two weeks later, when the HOA drafted new flowetpot rules that forbad his tiny flag from being flown.'
The fine notices started

appearing in his mailbox again.
SSo Murphree filed a second federal lawsuit earlier this year.
That was dismissed in March by a U.S. District Court judge who said, among other things, that it was an issue for state courts.
No state lawsuit has yet been filed, and Murphree's attorney Gust Sarris said they are trying to settle the matter with The, Tides out of court before filing.
If he loses his current battle against the HOA and fails to pay his fines or dues, Murphree says he could lose hi home.
He said he owes about $30,000 related to the challenge.
The Tides has also filed a lien against Murphree's property for unpaid HOA dues - the money he sent for dues was instead applied by the HOA to his flag fines and legal costs.
Murphree's neighbors have largely been supportive of his fight, he said, but after visits by television crews and reporters, some wish' he would just fly the flag according to the rules.
But Murphree believes h 's fighting for a larger cause.
"This is about my love and respect for the flag," he said. "There's people who trap on a gun to protect me and my family ... it's a small flag but a big thank-you."

Some SeaWorld mammals survive longer in captivity
The Associated Press
ORLANDO - Since the release of a highly-critical documentary last year, SeaWorld Entertainment has been condemned by animal rights activists distressed over the condition of its killer whales. But annual survival rates for some of the most common marine mammals - including killer whales - at SeaWorld's three parks are near the top of all U.S. parks and aquariums, an analysis of five decades of federal data by The Associated Press showed.
SeaWorld's survival rates for bottlenose dolphins and California sea lions actually exceed estimates for those in the wild.
Breakthroughsintraining and medicine that allow the parks' medical staffs to perform far fewer stressful or invasive procedures are partly responsible for those successes, SeaWorld officials said.
Decades ago, an evaluation of a marine mammal at a SeaWorld park might require a pool to be drained for an X-ray or the animal to be restrained. No longer. Through behavioral training, and bribes of herring and salmon, the marine mammals at SeaWorld parks'have learned to give breath, urine and blood samples on cue. Dolphins are trained to keep their heads out of the water so endoscopes can be passed into the stomach for alook. An elaborate laboratory on SeaWorld grounds allows samples to be evaluated immediately.
"We do a lot of self-critiquing of who is doing what, how," said Todd Robeck, vice president of reproductive research at SeaWorld Entertainment, Inc., which is the largest holder of marine mammals in the United States. "'How are you handling food? How are you handling your moms and calves? What is the medical care?" Killer whales born in captivity at SeaWorld parks have a survival rate nearly equal to their counterparts in the wild, according to AP's analysis of data from the federal Marine Manmmal . Inventory Report. However, the survival rate of all SeaWorld's orcas, including those captured in the oceans, is lower than estimates of those living in the wild.
While the survival rates have steadily improved over the past five decades, they don't speak to the quality of life that whales, dolphins and sea lions have at SeaWorld parks. Critics say keeping intelligent marine mammals in captivity is inhumane and detrimental to their well-being.
Last year's documentary, "Blackfish," explored what may have driven a killer whale named Tilikum to kill veteran SeaWorld trainer Dawn Brancheau in 2010. The documentary argued that killer whales in captivity become more aggressive to humans and to each other.
Several entertainers, including Willie Nelson, Heart and TrishaYearwood,

"It does not look like, given time, theywillfinallyfigure it out and be as good as nature (or better, which is really what they should be shooting for)," said Naomi Rose, a marine mammal scientist at the AhimalWelfare Institute in an email, referring to the overall captive orca population. Jett said the killer whales grow restless and combative in captivity. They often grind their teeth against concrete barriers and gates, breaking them and causing cavities that become conduits for infections, he said. "The animals are really bored," said Jett, currently a visiting research professor at Stetson University in Florida.
Christopher Dold, a vice president of veterinary ser-
vices at SeaWorld, denies that orcas wear down their teeth on barriers. Whether the protests and criticism have taken a toll is up for debate. Sea World Entertainment, Inc. reported a 13 percent attendance decrease in the first quarter of the year, but the company said the decline was because the Easter holiday fell in the second quarter this year, pushing back spring break vacations.
Even as conditions improve in captivity, the marine mammals' native oceans are deteriorating because of human-generated pollution, said Dr. Mike Walsh, co-director of aquatic animal health at the University of Florida's College of Veterinary Medicine.
"People think it's a Cinderella existence out there, and it's a great place to be, but that's not the way it works," Walsh said. "It's survival out there. It's not a nice place to be unless you're at the top of the food chain, and even then you're affected by changes in your environment."

Mader adjusting to minor league life
KRISTIE CLOUD / FLORIDAN
Michael Mader pitches for Chipola in a game last season.
BY DUSTIN KENT
Former Marianna Bulldogs and Chipola Indians star pitcher Michael Mader will make his third professional appearance tonight when he takes the mound for the Batavia (N.Y.) Muckdogs against Mahoning Valley in Niles, Ohio. Mader, who was drafted by the Miami Marlins in the third round of the 2014 MLB Draft last month, hasmade two starts for the organizations Short-Season A club so far, going two innings each game and allowing no runs on one hit with five walks and four strikeouts. Though he'd like for the strikeout number to increase and the walks number to decrease, Mader said Thursday that he has been mostly satisfied with what he has shown in his first two professional outings. "I'm pretty happy. I want to cut down on the walks, but I feel a lot better with how I'm missing. Instead of missing way off the plate, I'm a lot closer," he said. "The (strike) zone is a little smaller, so I'm getting adjusted to that, but I feel like I hqve a better command of my pitches." Mader is scheduled to throwthree innings tonight and three more in the following start, with the next two outings after that scheduled for four innings each, as the team seeks to manage his innings count to a total of 30 through the end of the short season Sept. 1. After that, Mader could get sent to Single-A Greensboro (N.C.) to
compete in the South Atlantic League, his stated preference. Until that time, Mader will continue to go about the business of adapting to the life of a professional baseball player on and off the field, a process he said has been everything he hoped it would be. "It's pretty awesome. We all get along pretty well," he said of himself and his new teammates. "It's kind of like summer ball in a way, but you're out here a lot more. You're pretty much on the field from (2 p.m. to 10 p.m.) on average, home and away, but I like it. I think it's good, especially because, unlike with summer ball where.yqu play with guys and go home, I'll most likely be moving up with a lot of these guys, so you can build a lot of good friendships." Mader has also gotten to pitch in front of more people than ever before, with the 6-foot-2 lefty saying that today's July 4 game will likely feature the biggest crowd that he has ever pitched in front of. But it's not all fun and excitement in the often unglamorous world of minor league baseball, with players living with local "host families" and taking bike rides to the ball park in the small western New York town, which Mader referred to as 'the Marianna of NewYork.' There is also a stringent schedule and excessive travel, the latter of which Mader said has been the most difficult adjustment to make.

Obama praises US team in phone calls
The Associated Press
WASHINGTON - President BarackObama commended the U.S. soccer team Wednesday for making the country proud in the World Cup tournament in Brazil, during an Oval Office phone call with two of the team's most celebrated players.
Obama called goalkeeper Tim Howard and team captain Clint Dempsey the day after the U.S. team was eliminated by Belgium. Praising Howard and Dempsey for their leadership and the team's performance, Obama said this year was the first time the U.S. team had the entire nation trulyfocused on the contest.
"You guys did us proud," Obama said in a video released by the White House. "To see the wayyou guys captured the hearts and the imaginations of the whole country is unbelievable."' He joked that Howard, whose 16 saves captivated soccer fans
worldwide, will have to shave his beard before returningto the U.S.
to evade the mobs enthralled by his performance. He invited the team to return to the White House soon and asked Howard Obama and Dempsey to
convey his congratulations to their coach and teammates.
"I know it's disappointing," Obama said about the 2-1 loss to Belgium in overtime. "But what you guys accomplished is really, really significant." Obama has been following the World Cup closely. He watched last week's U.S.-Germany match from Air Force One and chanted "I believe!" while watching the Belgium match Tuesday with White House aides. Accolades for Howard have been pouring in from the highest level of government, including from Defense Secretary

Howard's memorable play marks US World Cup run
The Associated Press
SAO PAULO- Tim Howard left a lasting impression on Americans from coast to coast - and fans around the world,, really
- for his incredible, improbable saves in the loss to Belgium in extra time that sent the U.S. home from the World Cup to a country captivated. Howard is a big reason - 6foot-3, .to -be exact - for the fascination. He has become a Twitter sensation in less than a day, while raising one important question before he leaves Brazil: Will the 35-year-old goalkeeper be back for the next World Cup four years from now in Russia?
"When you're in the public eye, it's part of what you have to deal with," Howard said Wednesday of the hype from his recordsetting World Cup. "I've been dealing with it for a long time. It's nice that America knows about soccer now. That's what's important."
Howard's 16 saves in the 2-1 loss were the most in a World Cup game since FIFA started tracking the statistic in 2002. Someone had fun with Howard's heroics onWikipedia,briefly listing the star goalie as incumbent "Secretary of Defense of the United States of America."'

2014 FEA World Cup
Brazil faces upbeat Colombia in quarters
The Associated Press
- Brazil and Colombia enter the World Cup quarterfinals with totally different mindsets.
Brazil is surrounded by doubts after a more difficult start than expected to the tournament it is hosting. Colombia is upbeat after convincing performances and four straight, wins.
While the hosts narrowly beat Chile in a penalty shootout to avoid elimination In the'second round,' the Colombians had a convincing 2-0 win over Uruguay to reach the quarterfinals for the first time. The South American rivals play Friday in the northeastern city of Fortaleza, with Brazil hoping to keep alive its quest for a sixth World Cup title and Colombia aiming to extend its best ever run in football's showcase event. Despite its tradition and home-field advantage, Brazil is far from a big favorite. An uncomfortable opening win over Croatia, a draw with Mexico and a win over Cameroon in the group stage preceded the tight knockout match against Chile, when Brazil advanced on penalties. "It's normal to have peo-'

pie demanding thatwe play better," Brazil coach Luiz Felipe Scolari said. "But it's also normal what we have been seeing in this World Cup so far. There were a lot of even matches. There is no difference between teams that have tradition and world titles and the rest of the teams. Matches are being decided on penalties, in the final minutes, on mistakes." ' Colombia has won all of its matches without any real difficulty, thanks in part to the tournament's second-best attack with 11 goals, one less than the Netherlands. It also has a strong defense with only two goals conceded. Brazil, meanwhile, has scored
eight goals and conceded three.
"We're very happy because we are making history," said Colombia midfielder James Rodriguez, the tournament's leading scorer with five goals. "We want to do even more because this is a team that really wants to win." Colombia has beaten Brazil only twice - the last time in the 1991 Copa America - but the teams have drawn the last four matches they played, including in a 2012 friendly in New York.
Brazil has reached the quarterfinals in six consecutive World Cups, but was eliminated at this stage in the last two.
Unfamiliar face of Colombia beams at tournament
The Associated Press
- The euphoria in soccer-mad Colombia is deafening, and wonderfully contagious, ahead of Friday's do-or-die World Cup match against host Brazil. Never before has the star-crossed nation made the quarterfinals. Some are even waxing poetic about World Cup unity accelerating the pace of 18month-old peace talks to 'end a half-century of conflict that has claimed som 220,000 lives.
Half the population seems to be wearing the canary-yellow national jersey, even op days Colombia isn't playing; And the merrymaking, from singing in the streets to collective game-watching on huge screens in public parks, is often so unrestrained that many big-city mayors have imposed bans on alcohol sales on game days. SThe fear, ofcourse, is that it all will be fleeting and'the violence and intolerance that have long plagued the Andean nation will re-emerge at tournament's end.
"Soccer has always worked as a tool of union and a tool for nation-building," said Alexander Castro, a National University sociologist. "But soccer is also as ephemeral as a particular game. And when this World Cup ends it will be

like a passing fad, and we'll be back to our old habits." Not since, Colombia drubbed Argentina 5-0 in a 1993 World Cup qualifier has the South American nation of 48 million been so enthralled by the beautiful game.
"Colombia is going to make it tothe final because it has the fundamentals and preparation, and (the players) have great courage and desire," said Leonardo Soto, a 23-year-old paralegal in Bogota.
No country's fan base is apparently as dedicated as Colombia. Out of 19 surveyed in a pre-World Cup p6l done by YouGov.com for The New York Times. Just 6 percent of Colom(bians weren't interested in the sport, followed by Mexico with 8 percent and
Argentina with 10 percent. The United States, by contrast, had a 60-percent apathy rating.
President Juan Manuel Santos is among the devoted, and planned to attend Friday's contest. The ' Colombian team's unselfish poise and grace are about the only thing Santos and his political nemesis, ex-President Alvaro Uribe, can agree on these days as they spar over the handling of peace talks with the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia, or FARC. And even the leftist FARC has claimed a stake inthe national cheering section. Before the tourney, rebel negotiators sent the team a letter that gushed "with people like you, we're sure to go far."
Facing Belgium, Argentina may need more than Messi
The Associated Press
So far none of Argentina's opponents has been able to stop Lionel Messi. Perhaps Belgium has what it takes. But even if doesn't, the Red Devils present a fresh challenge for Argentina at this World Cup.
For the first time in Brazil, Argentina faces an opponent with attacking potential that rivals its own. "We will have to adapt, but what really interests me is to see how they will adapt to us," Belgium coach Marc Wilmots said.
Argentina has struggled on its road to the quarterfinals, relying on single moments of Messi magic to break stalemates against mostly defense-oriented teams.
On Saturday in Brasilia, it's up against a young, sparkling team that's considered a dark horse for the title. Even though it needed extra time to prevail against the United States, Belgium unleashed offensive qualities in that game that could present major problems for Argentina's at times shaky defense. Belgium fired 38 shots, half of them from midfielders Kevin de Bruyne and Eden Hazard, and strikers Divock Origi and Romelo Lukaku. An impressive performance by U.S. goalkeeper Tim Howard kept the score down. Meanwhile, Argentina's attack hasn't been as.fearsonie as predicted. Center forward Gonzalo Higuain is scoreless after four games and his attacking partner Sergio Aguero is out injured. Ezequiel Lavezzi is replacing the Manchester City striker but was largely ineffective against Switzerland.
Then there's Messi.
The little genius has delivered when Argentina needed him most, scoring in every group stage match and setting up Angel Di Maria's extra-time winner against Switzerland in the round of 16. In a tight game, the Swiss shackled him successfully until his decisive run in the 118th minute.
"We knew that we would face a situation like that, but that's football and we had luck on our side," Messi said. "We're aware that all matches are going to be

very close and that details will make the difference."
Wilmots was unwilling to compare the strengths of the two teams but noted that except for a few players, Argentina's performance at the World Cup has exposed some weaknesses. . "Obviously they have Di Maria, Lavezzi, Higuain and Messi," Wilmots said. "But I also saw thqy ,showed a lack of balance within the team and that they had problems."
Argentina left back Sergio Rojo is suspended and will probably be replaced by Jose Basanta in Saturday's game. Wilmots said Belgium left back Thomas Vermaelen is likely to return after missing the U.S. game with a hamstring injury, while midfielder Steven Defour is back from suspension. Belgium and Argentina haven't met in the World Cup since the 1980s, when they were both at their peak. In 1982, Belgium beat Argentina 1-0 in theirWorld Cup opener. Four years later Diego Maradona scored both goals in a 2-0 semifinal win on Argentina's road to its secondWorld Cup title.
FIFA: Suarez ban was justice,
RIO DE JANEIRO - FIFAs disciplinary committee chairman says Luis Suarez received a just punishment and was not made an example of.
Claudio Sulser told reporters the
Uruguay and Liverpool forward's World Cup biting case was "very severe."
Suarez was banned for nine Uruguay matches, four months from all football and fined 100,000 Swiss francs ($112,000) by Sulser's seven-man panel. Sulser says through a translator: "one thing I mentioned in my capacity as the chairman is we don't need to impose an exemplary sanction, we need to have justice."
The former Switzerland player says he could not comment further because SSuarez and the Uruguay football federation have appealed.'
Sulser confirmed the ban from football activity would not stop Suarez having a medical to complete a possible transfer to Barcelona.

The official said 19 people were known to be injured so far. The official spoke on condition of anonymity because he wasn't authorized to talk to the media about the incident. The overpass collapsed about 3 miles from the Mineirao stadium, which has hosted several World Cup matches in recent weeks and is the site of a seinifinal match Tiesday. The overpass "arched over a really busy thoroughfare," Pascualsaid.

"What happens going forward with the national team, I don't know," he said. "I don't think it's very black and white, to be honest. I need to figure all that out."
Howard had 15 shutouts - one behind coleaders Petr Cech of Chelsea and Wojciech Szczesny of Arsenal - in 37 league matches for Evetton this season before joining the Americans in mid-May for training camp in Northern California. In the spring, he signed a two-year contract extension through 2018 and is likely to close out his career with Everton.
"He was fantastic. There's no other way to put it," midfielder Michael Bradley said. "He's somebody that we rely on so much for his performances on the field but also his leadership and his presence."
Klinsmann knows how much he meant for the Americans reaching back-to-back World Cup knockout rounds.

Borges is Costa Rica's lungs at World Cup
Costa Rica's Joel Campbell (center) controls the ball during the World Cup Round of 16 match between Costa Rica and Greece in Recife, Brazil on Sunday.
Costa Rica coach learned
from Dutch master
The Associated Press
RIO DE JANEIRO - At this point in theWorld Cup, the Dutch know plenty about Costa Rica - once one of the surprise packages of the tournament. What they may not know is that Costa Rica's Jorge Luis Pinto learned his coaching from the Dutchman who invented 'total football'.
Well-traveled Colombian coach Pinto studied at the University of Cologne early in the 1980s when Dutch coach Rinus Michels was coaching the city's Bundesliga club.
"In those years I spent my time watching him training and talking to him," Pinto said. "When I didn't have class, I went to see the club practice. I saw many things and learned a lot."
Michels was a good teacher - a few years later
he would lead the Netherlands to its one and only international title, the 1988 European Championship, having pioneered the 'total football' approach where players can change their positions during a game.
Now Pinto aims to stop the Dutch taking another step toward their first world title when his Costa Rica team meets the Netherlands on Saturday at Salvador's Arena Fonte Nova.
It is not only Pinto who knows the Dutch game well. Bryan Ruiz had a successful spell with FC Twente before joining Fulham and now plays at PSV Eindhoven alongside likely Netherlands starter Georginio Wijnaldum and super-sub Memphis Depay. Ruiz has teamed up with a strong, fast-paced striker in Joel Campbell, propelling Costa Rica to the sur-
prise top spot in a Group D that also included England, Italy and Uruguay. Pinto's team also has a miserly defense that has conceded just two goals in the tournament so far. "Costa Rica has a very good team," in-form Dutch forwardArjenRobben said. "I think before not a lot of people would have expected them to go through 'to the next round but I think they are a very strong team and it's going to be another very difficult game for us where we have to give everything to go through to the semi-finals." Not surprisingly Costa Rica will be attempting to shut down the Dutch striking partnership of Robben and Robin van Persie, who are looking to get back on the scoring sheet after combining for six goals in their team's first two matches but failing to find the net since.
The Associated Press
SANTOS, Brazil - Celso Borges is the link between the two Costa Rica teams that have sprung World Cup surprises. His father, Alexandre Guimaraes, is a naturalized Brazilian who played as a striker in the Costa Rica team that reached the round of 16 in Italy in 1990. Twenty-four years later, the son is the midfield lungs of a team that has done even better at this World Cup. And Borges says it would be wrong to assume that Costa Rica is satisfied with being among the top eight teams in the World Cup.
The "Ticos," he says, aspire to go even further this time as they prepare to face the Netherlands on Saturday in the quarterfinals.
"The team is still hungry. We have not lost our ambition, our desire," said Borges, who plays for Stockholm team AIK in the Swedish league. At the end of the penalty shootout that Costa Rica won against Greece in Recife last Sunday Borges dodged security guards to embrace his father in the
stands of the Pernambuco stadium. The scene highlighted the sweet moments that the Costa Ricans are enjoying in Brazil, where they caused a sensation in the first round by topping a group with former world champions Uruguay, Italy and England. Knowing that it's the big surprise of the tournament, the team is pushing itself to lift its aim ever higher, Borges said.
"We are at a point where we want to win against ourselves," he said. "We want to make history. We didn't come to Rio to visit, or to spend some time at the beach."
Borges, who fills a role as a midfield playmaker but also helps out in defense, came to Brazil to run. According to FIFAs measurements of the distance covered by players, the midfielder is in ninth position with 46.3 kilometers run over 378 minutes. "It's part of my job," Borges said. "I don't have any statistics ... but what I have liked the most is that I have been involved in scoring chances and closing space in defense."

A 1982 clash revived as France-Germany meet
The Associated Press
RIO DE JANEIRO - When Germany goalkeeper Manuel Neuer embarked on a series of hair-raising dashes out of his area in the second-round win over Algeria, it would have struck a chord with French football fans of a certain vintage. Thoughts no doubt returned to one of the most shocking collisions inWorld Cup history, which occurred in the 1982 semifinal between West Germany and France and involved another goalkeeper's excursion offhis line.
Harald Schumacher's airborne challenge on Patrick Battiston, which knocked the France defender unconscious and broke his jaw but went unpunished, still raises anger and emotion in France
- particularly as West Germany went on to win that match in a penalty shootout thanks to the saves of Schumacher. Predictably, the incident has been one of the major talking points ahead of the countries' clash in the World Cup quarterfinals on Friday. It will be their fourth meeting on football's biggest stage, with Germany also winning the most recent head-to-head in 1986 in the semifinals. "Tomorrow we will write a new page of history," Deschamps said when asked about the hurt of 1982 and '86. "We will try to make it as pleasant as possible."

detail the step-by-step process of Schumacher's aerial collision with Battiston. Clearly, the episode hasn't been forgotten in France but many of country's players weren't even born when that gapne took place. And they aren't using itas motivation.
"As far as we are concerned, we live in the present," France's 26-year-old goalkeeper Hugo Lloris said. Germany is playing in the quarterfinals for a ninth straight World Cup and also reached at least the semifinals of the last two European Championships. But there is a growing feeling that a young and dynamic France team can bring down its more experienced opponent.
Ghana to have formal agreements for player bonuses
The Associated Press'
RIO DE JANEIRO - Ghana is planning to take preemptive action for the next World Cup to avoid offthe-field problems over bonus payments. The country's football association said Wednesday it will have contracts with players for their bonuses at future tournaments. The move comes after the federation had to rapidly bring in $3 million in cash to keep the team playing in Brazil.
GFA President Kwesi Nyantakyi said Ghana had also used cash "in drder to prevent player revolts" at
the 2006 and 2010 World Cups, but would now revert to "signed agreements" and bank transfers for the bonuses. The decision follows a series of pay disputes involving African teams at the World Cup in Brazil. Cameroon and Nigeria players also argued with their federations and threatened to strike unless they were paid immediately instead of waiting until after the tournament.
The problems were because informal promises made to African players by their federations had been broken before, former Nigeria captain and FIFA techni-
cal study group member Sunday Oliseh said. "You know, promises have been made to them and when it gets to the World Cup some of these promises are not really fulfilled," Oliseh said, calling the off-field problems that surrounded three of the five African teams in Brazil "painful."
"It's one of the reasons why I think we have not won the World Cup yet," the former midfielder said. "Because when it comes to quality (players), Africa has (them)."
Ghana's players didn't have signed agreements for their bonus payments for
Brazil and feared they ultimately wouldn't see their money. The demands to receive their money ahead of the decisive final group game against Portugal forced Ghanaian authorities to fly the stacks of cash in on a chartered plane. Cameroon's squad refused to even get on their plane for Brazil before the tournament started until their bonuses were improved and guaranteed, and Nigeria missed a training session as they demanded their payments for qualifying for the second round of the tournament before they played France.

Lowry averaged career highs of 17.9 points and 7.4 assists for the Raptors, who were one of the NBA's biggest surprises in going 48-34. They were expected to be one of league's worst teams, particularly after trading forward Rudy Gay early in the season, but instead nearly reached the Eastern Conference semifinals before falling to Brooklyn in
seven games. They were led by their guard tandem of Lowry and All-Star DeMar DeRozan, who will be staying together. Lowry posted a picture of himself on Twitter in a Raptors jersey, writing that Toronto would be his home city. He was considered the top point guard available and reportedly targeted by contending teams such as Miami and Houston during free agency before deciding to stay put. Contracts can't be signed until July 10. Lowry has also played for Memphis and Houston, which traded him to Toronto in 2012. The 2006 first-round pick by the Grizzlies out of Villanova has career averages of 11.7 points and 5.4 assists.

Bouchard gives Canada a Slam finalist at Wimbledon
The Associated Press
LONDON - Eugenie Bouchard could have lost her focus after the fourth game of her Wimbledon semifinal Thursday, when play was delayed for five minutes during Simona Halep's medical timeout for a leftankle injury. Bouchard also could have gotten sidetracked when action was halted again, smack-dab in the middle of a tiebreaker, because an ill spectator was being attended to in the Centre Court stands. Arid everything really could have unraveled for Bouchard later, as she let match point after match point slip away. Able to steel herself time and again, the singular-of-purpose Bouchard became Canada's first Grand Slam
finalist by beating French Open runner-up Halep 7-6
(5), 6-2 at the All England Club. "I'm able to not worry about the distractions," the 20-year-old Bouchard said. "What I do well is I really don't let it get to me or affect me."
In only her sixth major tournament, the . 13thseeded Bouchard will play for the ,championship Saturday against 2011 Wimbledon winner Petra Kvitova. The sixth-seeded Kvitova defeated No. 23 Lucie Safarova 7-6 (6), 6-1 in the first all-Czech women's Slam semifinal; "I know how (it feels) when you hold the trophy," Kvitova said, "so I really want to win my second title here, and I will do everything (so) Ican." Waiting in a hallway
. . .. ... .... .
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
Eugenie Bouchard of Canada runs to play a return to Simona Halep of Romania during their women's singles semifinal match at Wimbledon in London on Thursday.
before walking on court, Kvitova and Safarova chatted, a pair of longtime friends who train at the same club back home. From 6-allinthe tiebreaker, Kvitova won 31 of 48 points
the rest of the way, using her overpowering serve and'forehand that work so well on grass to improve to 6-0 against Safarova. In a year that zero Americanmenorwomenreached
Wimbledon's round of 16 for the first time in 103 years, another Canadian, Milos Raonic, will try join Bouchard as a finalist.. The men's semifinals Friday are old guard vs. new guard matchups: seven-time, champion Roger Federer against Raonic, and topseeded Novak Djokovic against Grigor Dimitrov. . As of now, the 24-year-old Kvitova is the only man or woman born in the 1990s to win a Grand Slam title. If Bouchard becomes the second, she also would be the youngest major champion since Maria Sharapova was 19 at the 2006 U.S. Open.
"It's what I've worked so long for," Bouchard said, without a hint of irony.
Yes, Bouchard is clearly, in a hurry - and, by the .looks of her muted postvictory reaction, didn't ap-
pear all that thrilled to get past the third-seeded Halep, who twisted her ankle in the early going and got it taped by a trainer. "I feel like my job is not done here," Bouchard said, "so there's no need for a huge celebration.". Taking the ball early while standing at the baseline, ending points quickly with flat groundstrokes, she reached the semifinals at the Australian Open and French Open this year before losing to the eventual champions.
Halep led 3-2 in the tiebreaker when chair umpire Kader Nouni noticed something was wrong with a woman in a lower-tier seat - it was the warmest day of the tournament, topping 75 degrees (24 Celsius) - and waved both players to the sideline.
Hundreds'honor Lutzkenkirchen at public memorial
St. Louis Rams tight end Philip Lutzenkirchen (43) walks off the field during the fourth quarter of an NFL game in St. Louis on Aug.17, 2013.
The Associated Press
MARIETTA, Ga. - Several hundred mourners attended Philip Lutzenkirchen's public memorial service and candlelight vigil Wednesday night, nearly filling the bleachers on one side of his old high school stadium less than four days after the popular former Auburn player's ,death.
.Tigers coach Gus Malzahn, athletic director Jay Jacobs and several dozen current and former Auburn players were on hand Wednesday night at Lassiter High School.
"He'll be remembered as one of the best players to ever put on an Auburn jersey. No doubt," said Malzahn, who flew home from vacation to attend the service.
The 23-year-old Lutzenkirchen, and driver Joseph
Ian Davis, 22, died in a one-car crash early Sunday morning. Police suspect alcohol was involved and are awaiting the results of blood tests.
Lutzenkirchen was the first player Malzahn recruited when he -arrived as Auburn's offensive coordinator after the 2008 season. The coach said Lutzenkirchen had a knack for making him smile.
"I'm a little stiff and, he always had a joke to make me smile, especially in pressure situations," said Malzahn, choking up briefly. "And I'm going to miss that."
He said- Lutzenkirchen "probablyhadmorefriends than any, other player I've coached."
Many of those attending, which included several assistant coaches, wore Auburn's orange and blue as requested by the family.
WR Dorial Green-Beckham joins Sooners
"This is incredible. The Lassiter family and Auburn family thank you very much," Lutzenkirchen's father, Mike, said. He wore an Auburn visor. He said his son and "best friend" would have been embarrassed by the attention.
"There's anew tight end in heaven," Mike Lutzenkirchen said. "He catches everything."
Lutzenkirchen played for Auburn from 2009 to 2012 and set a school record for
tight ends with 14 touchdown catches. Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton posted a message on Instagram on Wednesday on the loss of "my teammate, my friend, MY BROTHER." The two were key parts of Auburn's 2010 national championship season, connecting for the gamewinning toUchdown against Alabama. Auburn is also planning to hold a public service for Lutzenkirchen.

Dear Readers: Happy July 4th! Here's a little history of the Liberty Bell: The Pennsylvania Assembly ordered the Liberty Bell in 1751 to commemorate the 50-year anniversary ofWilliam Penn's Charter of Privileges, the original Pennsylvania Constitution. On Nov. 1, 1751, a letter was sent to order a bell fromWhitechapel Foundry in London and to inscribe on it a passage from Leviticus: "Proclaim LIBERTY throughout all the Land unto all the Inhabitants thereof- Lev. XXVX By Order of the ASSEMBLY of the Province of PENSYLVANIA for the State House in Philada."
The bell was hung on March 10, 1753, ,and cracked the first time it was struck.' At the time, it was thought that the bell was too brittle. Two Philadelphia foundry workers named John Pass and John Stow were given the cracked bell to be melted down and recast. They added copper in an attempt to make the new bell Less brittle. No one liked the sound, so Pass and Stow tried again. In November, the sound still wasn't good enough, so a new one was ordered fromWhitechapel. When the new bell arrived, it Sounded no better than the. other one, so theWhitechapel bell ended up in the cupola on the State House roof, and the Pass and Stow bell remained in the steeple.
The Liberty Bell tolled when Benjamin Franklin was sent to England to address
Sometimes theopening lead shows the path to the defeat of the contract ... if one of the defenders finds the right subsequent play. First, though, look only at the West hand. What should he lead against three no-trump? Some players open two no-trump with 19 highcard points, especially when they have a good five-card suit. It can be reasonable, but not with that North hand. Almost half of the points are in quacks (queens and jacks), which is not good, and there is one unstopped suit. One diamond is correct.

Colonial grievances, it tolled when King Geoxge I ascended to the throne in 1761, and it tolled to call together the people of Philadelphia to discuss the Sugar Act in 1764 and the Stamp Act in 1765. In October 1777, the British occupied Philadelphia. The Liberty Bell was hidden in the floorboards of the Zion Reformed Church in Allentown. According to tradition, it continued tolling for the First Continental Congress in 1774, the Battles of Lexington and Concord in 1775 and on July 8, 1776, when it summoned the citizenry for the reading of the Declaration of Independence. However, the steeple was in bad condition, and historians today doubt the likelihood of the story. The final expansion of the crack that rendered the bell unringable was onWashington's birthday in 1846.
Each year, the bell is gently tapped in honor of Martin Luther King Day. On every Fourth of July, at 2 p.m. Eastern time, children who are descendants of Declaration signers symbolically tap the Liberty Bell 13 times while bells across the nation also ring 13 times in honor of the patriots from the original 13 states.

no-trump, so West should lead a heart. And because

East should grab the trick and shift to his spade four, the low card guaranteeing at least one honor in the suit. West will win with his ace and return the spade eight, the higher card from a remaining doubleton. East will take three more spade tricks for down one. L
