Former teacher back in trouble
Accused of violating order not to contact the alleged victim
BY DEBORAH BUCKHALTER
A former Jackson County school teacher accused of lewd
or lascivious battery upon a teenager is now charged with violatingtheterms of his conditional release from McDaniel jail by having
contact with the alleged victim on the Fourth of July holiday weekend.
According to court documents related to the alleged violation, Patrick Kyle McDaniel and the victim had contact on or around July 5. Authorities say the victim stated that she and McDaniel met at a boat landing in Chattahoochee and then rode in McDaniel's car with plans to eat at the Osaka Japanese Steakhouse in
"For whatever reason they did not eat and left and went to Wal-Mart," the court document states. "The victim stated that she and (McDaniel) rode around and then (McDaniel) took her back to her car at the boat landing in

Cattlemen's Tour July 17
The Jackson County Cattlemen's Association has hosted numerous farm tours over its 52-year history. These tours provide a wonderful opportunity to interact with other cattle producers and visit a wide variety of operations in the region.
The 2014 tour will feature a variety of interesting stops. The first stop will be of a Dewberry and Blackberry control trial being conducted by the Jackson County Extension Service utilizing herbicides supplied by DowAgroSciences and Dupont. From there, the group will travel to a sponsored hamburger lunch, followed by a tour of Bigham Farm's commercial cow-calf operation. The group will then travel to the AFG Feed mill in Donalsonville, Ga. to learn about how this local company is producing cattle feeds from cotton and peanut byproducts. The final destination will be North Anierican Farms, a large diversified farming operation that includes a stocker cattle and feeding , operation.
Tour participants will meet at the Marianna High School football stadium parking lot at 10:45 a.m., and depart promptly at 11 a.m. Make plans to participate in the entire event, because the exact schedule of individual stops will be difficult to predict. Tour participants will be supplying their own
A group of cattlemen get ready to take the tour.
transportation for this event. The tour will require more than 1 1/2 hours of total driving time, so make sure vehicles have enough gas for the trip. Participants are encouraged to carpool, as much as possible, to limit the total number of vehicles on the tour. Vehicles can be left at the stadium parking lot for the duration of the tour. The estimated time of conclusion for the tour will be 5:30 p.m. with an estimated return time to the starting point
of 6 p.m.
This year the tour is open to any cattle producer in the region who would like to participate. While Cattlemen's Association membership is certainly appreciated, it is not required to take part in this event. This is a sponsored tour, with no registration fee, but preregistration is required by July 10. To RSVP, or get additional information, contact the Jackson County Extension Service, 482-9620 or email: doris. firstname.lastname@example.org.

WEDNESDAY, JULY 9,2014 + 3AF
Later this week, one of Marianna's prominent residents will be posthumously honored with
a monument to her many contributions to our community.
Queen Esther Bowers Brown is remembered as an
educator, historian and leader by residents of Marianna and will be immortalized with a marker near one of her most successful initiatives - the restoration and beautification of Borden Street at the railroad trestle. It's fitting to honor Brown, who embodied the concept of civic involvement and service to one's community. . She worked with the Gilmore Academy/Jackson County Training School Alumni Association to produce a series of history books, "Black America Series: Jackson County Florida" and is an integral part of that history herself, having spent more than 45 years performing various roles in local education systems and immersing herself in literacy programs after her retirement. The ceremony will take place south of the Borden Street trestle on Friday beginning at 9 a.m. with city and county officials andlocal ministers honoring the memory and contributions of Queen Brown.
Privacy in the
he Supreme Court last week ushered privacy
rights into the 21st century.
In a unanimous decision, the court ruled that police can't search the digital information on cellphones they seize from people they arrest unless they first obtain a warrant. Although the justices allowed for some exceptions, they made the key point that modern smartphones aren't just two-way communication devices akin to traditional land-line phones. They also store, on board and in computing "clouds," such vast amounts of personal data that a search by authorities would be akin to rifling through personal filing cabinets in a home or business - police activities that normally require warrants.
That all nine justices agreed on this sweeping principle, over the objections of the federal government, is a reassuring affirmation of the Fourth Amendment right to be free from unreasonable searches and seizures
- particularly in an age when the ubiquity of digital personal mediahas weakened barriers to privacy. Writing the court's unanimous opinion, Chief Justice John Roberts acknowledged that arrestees have diminished rights to privacy, and that court precedents allow searches of such personal items as a zipper bag or a cigarette pack carried inside a pocket. Yet Roberts mocked the Obama administration's argument that the data stored on a cellphone is "materially indistinguishable" from searches of other physical items. "That is like saying a ride on horseback is materially indistinguishable from a flight to the moon," Roberts wrote.
Clearly, he continued, cellphones differ in a "quantitative and qualitative sense" from an,arrestee's other possessions. Not only do they function as cameras and video players, Rolodexes, calendars, diaries and other media, but they also store vast amounts of data. A search of such varied information without probable cause is a much broader violation of.privacy than patting down a suspect or checking a bag. It can reveal Swho a person has associated with, where he has been and where he might be traveling, as well as his finances and commercial transactions. Ifauthorities have probable cause to access someone's cellphone, they can get a warrant.An arrest should not be license to go on a fishing expedition of any and all data.
Still, the court gave police some wiggle room. They can search cellphones without a warrant in'specific situations where officers have reasonable fear about their safety or the lives of others, such as a kidnapped child or the ever-popular "ticking time bomb" scenario. Those situations are and should remain rare. The court did well to stake out protections in a modern world.

THAT HE -'
These times are tough, as usual
ilitants have formally declared a new Islamic
state consisting of parts of Syria and Iraq. Russia, loaded with nuclear weapons and resentment, is looking menacingly at Ukraine. China is rich and restive. Israel is in upheaval over the deaths of three teens. There is no reason to believe Iran is refraining from pressing forward with nuclear-weapons research. North Korea is unpredictable and unreliable. Things are pretty bad.
Now let's backpedal exactly 100 years. The archduke has been assassinated, Austria-Hungary is looking to Germany for support, a blank check is on offer and before' long, Russia and France will have mobilized. Things are really bad.
Maybe we should go back a century and a half. The year 1864 was one of titanic battles (Wilderness, Spotsylvania, Petersburg, Atlanta, Mobile Bay) and a vital election (the Democrats nominated thereluctant warrior, George B, McClellan). Things are catastrophic.
How about only a half century? Fifty years ago, Lyndon B. Johnson had just signed the landmark civil rights bill, but before long, there would be riots in Harlem, three civil rights workers would be found dead in Mississippi; the Democrats would confront a rebellion at their national convention and in a month's time two U.S. destroyers would be attacked in the Gulf of Tonkin, or so the story would be told, precipitating increased American involvement in Vietnam. Things are bad and getting worse.
Before the year 1964 would be out, Americans would hear two competing views of their future,
one from Lyndon Johnson, en route to a 44-state landslide in the November election, and the other from Ronald Reagan, an underemployed actor-turned-activist who would give a celebrated pre-election television speech for Barry Goldwater, who would win less than 39 percent of the vote. How do we measure the peril our nation has faced: in 1776, when it was young and idealistic; in 1812, when it was vulnerable; in 1861, when it was torn asunder; in 1917, when it waded into European. affairs for the first time; in 1941, when war came to Pearl Harbor; in 1950 and 1961, when threats rumbled through Southeast Aaia;: in 1979, when American diplomats were held hostage by the Iranian Revolution; in 2001, when foreign terrorism crashed into our domestic life; and in 1827, 1857, 1877, 1893,1907,1920,1929,1937, 1973,
1981 and 2008 (and many more years), when economic distress endangered Americans' well-being. The very act. of typing all those. episodes.raises a secondary question: Is the human story- or the American story - simply a tale of woe, challenge piled upon challenge, danger built upon danger? When we contemplate our national narrative, we sometimes wonder whether we ever have experienced a period without threat
of calamity. The Era of Good Feelings? The first decade of the 20th century? Maybe the 1950s? That '50s decade was a period of unusual conformity (unless you count the green shoots, or more precisely the black shoots, of both rock music and the civil rights movement, or read the work of Jack Kerouac, J.D. Salinger and Allen Ginsberg). It was a period of peace (unless you count the Korean War and the challenges of the Suez. Crisis and the Hungarian Revolution). It was a period of domestic tranquility. It was a period of prosperity
All the current half-century retrospectives of the decade that followed, the 1960s, carry overtures of deep peril. In the 1960 campaign, both John E Kennedy and Richard M. Nixon spoke of the decade ahead as a dangerous period of change and challenge, and both sowed worries about America's ability to compete with the 'Soviets, maintain our freedoms and increase prosperity. In the 1984 election, 30 years ago, both Ronald Reagan and former Vice President Walter E Mondale spoke of the hazards of the period and warned they were competing in the most vital election of the period. (In fact, the election of 1980 was far more consequential.)
The sober lesson might be that crises are always with us. There are very few periods of serenity, and the promise of "domestic tranquility" in the Constitution was a chimera, promised and yearned for, yet illusory, maybe impossible.

Letters to the Editor Where is the justice in Florida Law?
Recently a comedian, Tracy Morgan,'was seriously injured, and another comedian was killed on the New Jersey Turnpike by a tired, sleepyWalmart truck driver who might have fallen asleep and rear-ended their van. He was arrested and charged with vehicular homicide. That seems reasonable to me.
Back on Aug. 19, 2013, my only sister, Betty McDaniel, was killed in Jackson County in a head-on collision on Hwy. 90 by a young man who might have fallen asleep or been distracted. He drove into my sister's lane and took her life. He was charged (after about seven months' investigation) with failure to maintain his lane, fined $1,000 and lost his driver's license for a period of six months, although he can still drive to school and work. I guess the value of a human life in Jackson County is pretty cheap. We realize the young man didn't do it intentionally, but the results are the same. Despite what a few have said, he and his family are not the victims. We are.I When I asked the investigating office if they had
run a toxicology test on the young man he said no, that he appeared sober and not on drugs. And unless they had a good reason they can't order a report. (I guess maybe veering into someone's lane and causing death isn't a good enough reason) Apparently, the highway patrol officer can't order a report anyway; he has to call a judge and get a court order and they will send someone out to do the test. Sometimes this takes hours and by that time the person has sobered up. Ironically, while they couldn't run a toxicology report on the young man who caused the crash, during the autopsy they ran a toxicology screening on my sister. Someone at the crash site decided my sister was not going to survive because they used the helicopter that had been called for her to fly the young man with minor injuries to Dothan. My sister was taken to Jackson Hospital in an ambulance.
The state needs to change its bleeding heart liberal laws and require a toxicology test immediately on any crash involving death or serious
injury. On the front of every Florida driver's license are the words: "Operation of a motor vehicle constitutes consent to any sobriety test required by law." Common sense says that crossing the center line and causing a crash should be enough "probable cause" to warrant sobriety and toxicology tests.

What about American citizens in need? I wonder why President Barack Obama and his administration are out to feed, clothe, educate and provide jobs and medical service to hundreds of thousands of individuals who are not citizens of this country when we have hundreds of thousands legal citizens who have need of these same services. This will cost millions of tax dollars. I also wander just.how much of these dollars are coming from federal programs that get their money from the Social Security fund, now referred to as the Government Benefit Fund. Remember, the dollars the working citizens pay in are not
the federal government's dollars; they are those of the citizens who work and pay them in. I would say to all those supporting the importing of illegal individuals, why don't you go out and hold demonstrations in support of those naturalborn Americans who are in need? Demonstrate for the repayment of the millions of dollars taken from Social Security and put into other welfare programs. There are thousands of legal American youth who want to get a college education, but cannot afford it. Why not use these millions of dollars, being paid to fund illegal immigrants and help these get their education? If one act of being illegal is OK, then why not all others acts of being Miegal? I contend if it is illegal to steal and murder, then it is just as illegal to cross our American borders without legal permit and allowance.
I support the citizens in California who oppose the president's busing in illegal Mexicans, young or old. I just pray that more American citizens will speak out publicly.

The marker's location itself is a fitting tribute to Brown. Through her continued vigilance and tireless efforts working with the NAACP, city of Marianna, CSX Corp and other officials, the washout problem on Borden Street was alleviated ahd the trestle restored. That area even underwent a makeover of sorts, after the city completed a beautification project there. Today, the street is lined with crepe myrtles and has a bench near the spot where Brown's monument will be installed.
Ceremony organizer and longtime friend of Brown,
Lavon Pope, says she's excited to be part of the marker dedication. As members of St. James A.M.E. Church, Pope and Brown spent nearly 13 years forging a "motherdaughter-type relationship." "She's such a force," Pope said. "She has done so much for the community." Listening to Pope talk about her friend and mentor, it's clear that Brown's spirit is very much alive with those who knew and loved her.
Now, with the help of the Borden Street marker, her legacy can live for years to come.
Rehabbed sea turtle released along coast of Honeymoon Island
The Associated Press
HONEYMOON ISLAND -A green sea turtie named Bubba Gump is back in the water. The Tampa Tribune
reports the rehabilitated turtle was released Tuesday morning off Honeymoon Island. The turtle was treated at the Clearwater Marine Aquarium after be-
ing found floating face down in Tarpon Springs on March 2. Aquarium officials say a buoyancy disorder limited his ability tb dive and remain submerged, affecting his ability to forage for food. This was the aquarium's seventh green sea turtle release this year. A loggerhead turtle also was released in January.
Workers with Clearwater Maine Aquarium release a green sea turtle into the waters along Honeymoon Island on Tuesday in Dunedin.
Boy back in Fla. after adoption fails
The Associated Press
ST. PETERSBURG - He thought he had finally found a family. After 16 years of floundering in foster care, after taking the pulpit at a St. Petersburg church last September asking someone - anyone - to adopt him, after his story was shared around the world and 10,000 people offered to help or take him home, Davion Only moved to Ohio in March to live with the parents who had promised to care for him forever and love him no matter what. The couple, a minister and his wife, flew Davion up to visit over spring break. They introduced him to their three children and took him to church. Davion came back to Florida just long enough to pack a small suitcase. Then he returned to Ohio, where his prospective parents signed him up to play football - something he had always wanted to do.
"I got baptized!" he wrote April 20, from his new phone, on his new Facebook page. The adoption could take place in 90 days, said Terri Durdaller, whose agency, Eckerd, oversees Tampa Bay's foster children. That would have meant that Davion could be adopted this month. Instead, he is back in Pinellas County, at a therapeutic foster home; upset and embarrassed, unwilling to talk. "There was an incident in Ohio," said Eckerd's director, Lorita Shirley.
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
Davion Only, 15, takes to the pulpit at St. Mark Missionary Baptist Church in St. Petersburg, to tell.the congregation that he's a good kid who just wants a family.
At one point, she said, things got physical between Davion and another child in the house and with the dad. The family wanted him out. On May 30, Davion's case manager flew to Ohio and brought him back to Florida. "This has been a major setback for him," Shirley said. "Our goal now is to get him treatment." Davion Navar Henry Only was born while his mom was in jail. He started searching for her last June, after he finished his first year in high school. She had died just a few weeks before. That's when he knew, his counselors said, that she wasn't coming to get him. That's when he decided to find a family himself.

"I'll take anyone," Davion said last September. "Old or young, dad or mom, black, white, purple. I don't care."

In a report about his arrest at that time, the Jackson County Sheriffs Office stated that an investigation began after school officials provided information concerning possible allegations of an inappropriate relationship between a student and a teacher in the district. Officials eventually charged McDaniel in the case.
According to the narrative com-
generated list of criteria upon which the committee members could base their individual rankings.
The top three candidates would be determined after the individual rankings are compared. Commissioners didn't specify what would happen afterthat, buttypically they would interview the top candidates from there.

vion's plea was picked up by news outlets across the world. Producers of "The View" flew him to New York to talk to Barbara Walters. More than 10,000 strangers called offering to help or adopt him. Eckerd workers returned 2,500 of those calls, said Durdaller, the agency's spokeswoman. At first, Eckerd officials tried to connect Davion with a second cousin, a sheriffs deputy who learned of Davion through the newspaper. When that didn't work, they moved him from the group home to be with a foster family. But that family never intended to adopt Davion. In early March, Davion called his former adoptions specialist to say, "I had a blowout." The foster family refused to keep him.
But it was OK, Davion said then. He had met this great couple from Ohio. A minister and his wife with a bunch of kids.
They said they wanted him. Finally, someone wanted him.
"On paper, this was the book-definition perfect family for him," said Shirley, Eckerd's director. "The father was a pastor who had worked with troubled kids. They knew about Davion's background and his issues.""The biggest thing that went wrong is that Davion spent 15 years in the system," said Shirley. "He has a lot of built up anger. It's been very devastating for everyone involved."

Authorities say that Shumaker admitted that he had been using methamphetamine, and officers directed a deputy and drug dog team to a bedroom in the house where he stayed. He then pointed out the location of a zippered case that contained suspected methamphetamine in liquid and solid form.

Federal judge won't dismiss Medicaid lawsuit
The Associated Press
MIAMI - A federal judge refused Tuesday to dismiss a lawsuit that alleges Florida provides inadequate care to children in its Medicaidprogram, despite state claims that privatizing the program will resolve many of the problems. The state argued that a massive statewide overhaul to privatize Medicaid will raise reimbursement rates, improve doctor participation and address
allegations that children can't get doctor appointments. Attorneys for the state said thelawsuit, which was filed nine years ago, has become moot because of the Medicaid privatization. Statewide enrollment for most children began in May and ends in August. Judge Adalberto Jordan said the changes are promising, but added there are too many unknowns about whether the program will actually improve access to medical care to dismiss
Under privatization, the state pays insurance companies a set fee to provide care and the companies must follow standards. However, Jordan said it will be some time before it's clear whether insurers follow through.
"It's one thing to require standards in a contract. It's quite another thing to see if they meet the standards and we aren't going to know that for a very long time," said Jordan, who
said he plans to issue a ruling in October. The state has spent millions defending the classaction lawsuit that claims Florida is violating federal Medicaid requirements by providing inadequate medical and dental care for children on Medicaid. The initial complaint alleges 390,000 children did not get a medical checkup in 2007 and more than 750,000 received no dental care. Many doctors and dentists won't accept Med-
icaid, as Florida's reimbursement rates are among the country's lowest. The lawsuit alleges children on Medicaid often must wait two to three months to see specialists, especially in rural counties. Nearly 3 million Florida residents - more than half of them children - are shifting to privatized Medicaid this year. Insurance companies are required to spend 85 percent on patient care and must expand their network of doctors
and hospitals, increase reimbursement rates and meet a host of stringent new standards, said Stephanie Daniel, an attorney for the state. She said that will dramatically improve access to medical care.
"Medicaid as it was before won't exist," she said. About 5,000 children will not transition into the privatization program and the state will still pay for the medical services they incur, said Daniel.
Family wants Palestinian-American teen back in US
SThe Associated Press
TAMPA - Family and friends of the Palestinian-American teen who they allege was beaten by Israeli authorities said Monday that they are anxious to see him return home and for those who mistreated him to be held accountable.
Tariq Abu Khdeir, 15, shouldbereleasedandsent back to the United States immediately so he can get medical attention, Hassan Shibly, the teen's attorney and the executive director of the Florida chapter of the Council on AmericanIslamic Relations, told a news conference. Tariq has suffered head trauma, has bloodshot eyes, and had to receive stitches on his face, Shibly said.
"There's no justification for what happened," he said.
The teen was in police custody in Israel. Authorities released him Sunday and sentenced him to nine days of house arrest while they investigate what they say was his participation in violent protests over the death of Tariq's cousin, 16year-old Mohammed Abu Khdeir. His family denies
that he participated in the protests.
Tariq's father, who also is in Israel, told The Associated Press over the weekend that he recognized his son in a video of what he said was the beating. The U.S. State Department said it was "profoundly troubled" by reports that Tariq was beaten.
The Israeli justice ministry said an investigation has been opened into the footage.
Palestinians suspect Mohammed Abu Khdeir was killed by Israeli extremists exacting revenge for the abduction and killings of three Israeli teens in the West Bank last month. Shibly called the international incident a "watershed moment" for American-Israeli relations and called on the region to find peace.
"Let's not play the blame game," he said. "Let's figure out how to stop it." Tariq's parents said over the weekend that they plan on returning to the U.S. with their son on July 16. On Monday, Shibly said Tariq's father has filed complaints with the Israeli government and met with Palestinian President MahmoudAbbas.

year's state tourney in East Lakeland, but only two players from that squad - Caleb Torbett and Wilton Pittman - are back for this year's run.
But Marianna coach Brian Wiggins still believes this group has as good of a shot as any team in the field to return with a state title. "I think we're as competitive as anybody. From 1-through-12, we've got good players," he said. "Usually you go over there with eight or nine good ones and a couple of weaker players, but with this bunch I can play 1-through-12 just about anywhere and they all hit pretty good too. My biggest problem is deciding where I'm going to
play all of them and bat them. "Our goal is to win the state championship. I don't want to jinx us, but I feel pretty good about our chances."
Marianna will head out to Spring Hill on Friday to open up tournament play Saturday at 10:30 a.m. Central Daylight Time against Hardee, the defending state champion.
Competing against the larger South Florida teams has traditionally been a difficult challenge for Marianna, but Wiggins said he believes this group has the ingredients to get over the hump.

BELO HORIZONTE, Brazil - With Neymar out injured, just about everyone in Brazil knew it would be tough against Germany.
Nobody ever expected this. The Germans tore apart Brazil's porous defense time and time again Tuesday, routing the hosts 7-1 in the World Cup semifinals, the largest margin of defeat at this stage in the history of the tournament. "We wanted to make the people happy ... unfortunately we couldn't," said Brazil defender David Luiz, who had scored in each of the last two matches. "We apologize to all Brazilians."W
The astounding scoreline is sure to overshadow Miroslav Klose's recordsetting 16th career World Cup goal. The strike pushed Klose past Brazil great Ronaldo, who was at the Mineirao Stadium on Tuesday as the Germans advanced to their eighth World THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Cup final.

Van Persie has stomach issue ahead of semifinals
The Associated Press
SAO PAULO - Dutch captain and all-time top scorer Robin van Persie is in doubt for the World Cup semifinal against Argentina after succumbing to a stomach problem. Van Persie trained separately on Tuesday with defender Daryl Janmaat and coach Louis van Gaal said both were suffering "stomach and intestinal problems."
Van Gaal said he would not rush into deciding whether Van Persie is fit to play at Sao Paulo's Itaquerao Stadium against the Lionel Messi-led Argentina. "I have to make a decision tomorrow. I'm not going to do that today. We have more than a day," Van Gaal said. "Van Persie is a very important player for us."
Van Persie scored three times in the first two Dutch matches
of the World Cup, including a spectacular diving header against defending champion Spain that was instantly hailed as one of the goals of the tournament.
But the Manchester United striker'has struggled to hit the same rich vein of form since being suspended for the Netherlands' last Group B match after picking up two yellow cards.
Against Argentina, the prolific striker is looking to break a remarkable drought for a player of his caliber - he has never scored in the knockout stage of a major tournament. In potential good news for the Dutch, midfield enforcer Nigel de long trained Tuesday and could play against Argentina, depending on how he feels Wednesday.

Votto returns to disabled list
The Associated Press
CINCINNATI - The Reds placed first baseman JoeyVotto back on the 15day disabled list Tuesday with a thigh injury that is expected to limit him for the rest of the season. Catcher Brayan Pena was activated off the paternity list before a doubleheader against the Chicago Cubs. Pena will be one of the primary fill-ins at first base while Votto is gone. It's unclear when he might be back.
"Our plan of attack will be to do everything we can to get him back to play over the course of the year," manager Bryan Price said. "We don't have a timetable on how long that will be, but the goal is to get him back and able to help us before the year is out."
Votto earlier missed 23 games while on the DL with a strained muscle above his left knee. It's not expected to heal completely until the offseason. Votto was limited when he returned from the disabled list, batting only
.250 in 23 games. He hasn't homered since May 10. The knee began bothering him again last week. Tests on Monday found that he has aggravated the injury.
The Reds will consider trading for an experienced first baseman as a backup. "I think we'll see how things unfold here in the next couple of weeks," Price said. "It's a talking point, but right now that's all it is."
Nobody else on the roster has much experience at first. Outfielder Jay Bruce made his first appearance there since high school on Monday night. Third baseman Todd Frazier also has played at first base. For now, Price plans to use those three at the position.
"I don't want to create a black hole over there," Price said. "I don't think we will. I wouldn't put someone over there if I didn't feel they were capable of holding down the position. That being said, we don't have a lot of players with any real history as true first basemen."
Arizona's Arroyo to have Tommy John surgery
The Associated Press
PHOENIX- Bronson ArSroyo had been one of baseball's most gutsy pitchers, finding a way to take the mound no matter what was ailing him. Even after suffering a severe elbow injury in May, the Arizona Diamondbacks right-hander kept taking the ball, making six starts while fighting through the pain.
When an MRI revealed a ligament in his elbow had torn away fron the bone, Arroyo still trying to keep pitching before finally giving in.
A player who had never been on the disabled list prior to this season, Arroyo will have Tommy John surgery within the next week or so, becoming the third Diamondbacks pitcher to undergo the ligament-replacement procedure this year. .
"I wanted to see if I could pitch on it without the ligament, because a few guys have done it," Arroyo said on Monday. "Most of the guys were bullpen guys, so it was going to be tough to do. I fired it up the last three days, and I could throw 120 feet and I could probably go out there and pitch, but it just won't come back fast enough. So I'd have to pitch every 10 days and take nine days to get it healthy. It just wasn't going to work." Signed by Arizona during the offseason, Arroyo had been one of baseball's most durable pitchers, making 369 consecutive starts during 15 seasons with four teams.
The 37-year-old got the season off to a slow start after suffering a back injury in spring training, but had seemingly rounded into
form over the last month, pitchingwell despite the elbowinjury. He was 7-4 with a 4.08.ERA in 14 starts.
Arroyo said he believes the ligament tear came during a start againstWashington in May, when he outpitched Stephen Strasburg in a complete-game victory. He continued to pitch after that and was still effective, using medication to fight the pain and deception to fight off hitters. Despite pitching with a torn ligament, Arroyo went
*3-0 with a 2.95 ERA over his final three starts before going on the disabled list on June 16.
Even after an MRI revealed the tear, he tried to fight through it before succumbing to surgery.
"We, had a discussion with him before his last start and he was pretty adamant about continuing to pitch, he thought he could get through it but that last game really hurt him," Diamondbacks manager Kirk Gibson said. "That's when we shut him down and got the MRI and we took this course. It seems that surgery is the only way to go now."
Arroyo joins Patrick Corbin and reliever David Hernandez on Arizona's list of pitchers to have Tommy John surgery. Left-hander Daniel Hudson has had the surgery twice, in 2012 and 2013. All three are working their way back to the big leagues and Arroyo will do the same despite nearing the end of his career.
"If this was the last year that I was going to play, I would just go gut it out and pitch and it would hurt and I'd try to find a way to win at 82 miles per hour, but I don't think it is," Arroyo said.

Cleveland Indians starting pitcher Justin Masterson delivers in the first inning of a baseball game against the New York Yankees in Cleveland on Monday.
Indians place Masterson on DL
The Associated Press
CLEVELAND - The Cleveland Indians couldn't wait any longer for Justin Masterson to fix his pitching problems. The Indians placed Masterson on the 15-day disabled list with inflammation in his right knee Tuesday. Masterson, the team's opening day starter, is 4-6 with a 5.51 ERA. ManagerTerryFrancona talked with Masterson on Monday after the righthander allowed five runs and six hits in two-plus innings against the New. YorkYankees. "Masty's first inclination was wanting to pitch through it, which we respect," Francona said. "The way it was going, though, we thought we'd DL him and get him some treatment."
Masterson made the All-Star team last season when he went 14-10 with three shutouts. The Indians considered him to be their staff ace going into the season, but Masterson hasn't won since June 8 and has pitched more than four innings once in his last five starts. Masterson has been dealing with a sore knee most of the season. He was pushed back a couple
of days earlier this month, but his results haven't improved.
"It's hard to imagine it would help," Francona said of the injury. "I'm not in his body When a guy's out there competing, I don't think they think about it a lot, but I don't think it helps." Masterson was pulled without retiring a bitter in the third against New York. He walked three, hit a batter and rarely topped 90 mph in his 54 pitches, throwing only 24 strikes. He has given up 19 runs, 27 hits and 17 walks in 18 innings over his last five starts.
Masterson's short out-
training, but didn't reach an agreement. Corey Kluber is the only starter who's still in the rotation that opened the season. Zach McAllister and Danny Salazar are pitching at Triple-A Columbus while Carlos Carrasco was moved to the bullpen after fourstarts.
The rotation includes Trevor Bauei, Josh Tomlin and T.J. House, who all began the season in the minors. The' Indians are in third place in the AL Central with a 43-45 record and trail first-place Detroit by 6 1-2 games. "You're going to need
ings have also also put a lot of stress on the bullpen. Francona used five relievers Monday and six a week ago when Masterson didn't record an out in the fourth inning against the Los Angeles Dodgers.
"Maybe two weeks would be best for him and us because he was exiting early," Francona said. "It's hard to keep doing that and keep the bullpen not only healthy, but productive." Mastersonis afreeagent J after this season. The two sides talked about a contract extension in spring

more than five starters," Francona said. "It's a difficult thing to build in depth. You walk a fine line there. I don't think our record is what we want it to be. You can whine about it or you can choose to try to figure out a way to win," McAllister or Salazar will be recalled to start Saturday against the Chicago White Sox. The Indians also recalled left-hander Nick Hagadone and catcher Roberto Perez from Columbus and optioned outfielder Tyler Holt to Triple-A. Right-hander Mark Lowe was designated for assignment.

Blogger hired to defend Redskins name resigns
The Associated Press
ASHBURN, Va. - A blogger hired by the Washington Redskins to defend the team's name has quit after two weeks.
Ben Tribbett announced his resignation on Twitter late Monday, saying he didn't want to be a distraction because of personal attacks directed toward him.
Tribbett is well-known in Virginia politics as an advocate for liberal issues. He is perhaps best known for

"We're real talented and our pitching is very strong," he said. "We've got four or five good starters and three or four good relievers that can come in and throw strikes when we need it, so we should be able to get through the innings pretty easily without having to struggle to count innings for kids. "Most of these kids were on the AAA team that finished third in the state last year and they're not used to going down there and being intimidated or awestruck. They go down there to win and they usually do well. They don't get tight or act like a deer in the headlights. They'll go down there and play to win. They always think they can win

Germany will faceeither Argentina or the Netherlands on Sunday at the Maracana Stadium in Rio de Janeiro with a chance to win for the fourth time. Brazil was playing without Neymar, the team's key player and the poster boy for the World Cup. He scored four goals in the group stage, but Brazil's attack seemed to get weaker and weaker as the tournament progressed. The Barcelona striker was ruled out of the tournament with a broken vertebra after getting kneed in the back

There were fears De Jong's World Cup was over when he limped off early in the first half of the second-round match against Mexico and tests confirmed the day after the come-from-behind 21 victory that he had torn a groin muscle. The team said he was 'ikely out for two to four weeks, but De Jong battled back.

Tribbett tweeted that he supports the Redskins name but doesn't "see eye to eye with some friends" over the issue. Redskins owner Dan Snyder has vowed not to change the name but is facing unprecedented opposition from those who consider it a racial slur.
and that's how it's supposed to be."
Despite that approach, they haven't yet been able to make it all the way to the finish line and win the championship, though the coach said he thinks this is their best chance yet to do just that.
"I don't want to jinx us, but I really feel like it is," Wiggins said. "Some of the guys who were just contributors a few years ago are really good players now. They grew up, got stronger, got faster, and just got better. It's as good a team as I've been associated with from top to bottom. I've told them all along, from the day we met and voted and picked the team - and I've got two sons on this team - that I want this to be the team they win their first state championship with."
in the quarterfinal win over Colombia, weakening the sputtering attack even more. With Neymar sidelined and captain Thiago Silva suspended, the collective hopes of a nation remained high even if expectations were lowered. The atmosphere at the start of the match was spine-tingling, but the euphoria of the yellowshirted thousands soon turned to tears as the Germans scored five goals in the first 30 minutes - four of them in a seven-minute span.
"It was very important to stay calm, cool and courageous in facing -Brazilian passion," Germany coach Joachim Loew said.
lan midfielder would be checked Wednesday for possible adverse reactions to. his training session, "and if they are such that he can play then a miracle will have happened." Center back Ron Vlaar also returned to full training after injuring his knee in the penalty shootout victory over Costa Rica in the quarterfinals, Van Gaal said he has developed a plan to beat Argentina in a semifinal that is a rematch of the 1978 World Cup final the Dutch lost 3-1 in extra time.

Woods' Ryder Cup chances depend on 3 tourneys
The Associated Press
- Ryder Cup captain Tom Watson says that Tiger Woods will be on the U.S. team if he's healthy and playing well.
But what if he's healthy and not playing at all? Woods is at No. 209 in the FedEx Cup and needs to get to No. 125 to qualify for the playoffs. This next month of three tournaments - the British.Open, Bridgestone Invitational and PGA Championship
- ultimately will decide if he's in Gleneagles for the Ryder Cup the last weekend in September. "He'll be considered less of a pick then if he didn't have a track record going into the Ryder Cup," Watson said last week. "He'd be the first to tell you, 'I haven't been playing.' How he's been playing and if he's healthy, those are the two factors that I'll weigh in choosing him. That's just common sense, in my opinion."
Here's a common-sense way to look at the next month:
-If Woods qualifies for the FedEx Cup playoffs, he's on the team. He'll have played good golf to get there.
-Even if he comes close to the playoffs, Watson might consider that reasonable form to be one of three picks.
-If he doesn't feature in any of the three tournaments, and doesn't come

Stricker withdraws from British Open
The Associated Press
HOYLAKE, England Steve Stricker has withdrawn from the British Open next week at Royal Liverpool.
It's the second straight year he has decided not to play as he cuts back his schedule. Stricker was replaced in the field by Ryo Ishikawa of Japan. Stricker last year began reducing his schedule to spend more time with his family. He thought
about playing the Open this year, though it looked unlikely when he added The Greenbrier Classic to his schedule and his wife caddied for him.
Ishikawa won in Japan last week for his first victory since November 2012.
That moved him to a No. 76 world ranking and enabled him to be the first alternate. Ross Fisher of England is next on the reserve list.
way down the list as far as points. But who wouldn't pick Tiger Woods to be on your Ryder Cup team? That is the question to everybody. Who wouldn't pick him?"
Fred Couples reached that conclusion three years ago for the Presidents Cup, except the timetable was different. Woods missed two majors in 2011 be-
cause of injuries and didn't qualifying for the playoffs. Couples declared him to be on the team a month before making his picks. "There is no reason for me to wait," Couples said. '.'He's the best player in the world forever." Those matches, however, were not played until November. Watson might not have that luxury.

Sterling appears in court for Clippers trial
The Associated Press
LOS ANGELES - Donald Sterling, fighting his wife's planned $2 billion sale of the Los Angeles Clippers, arrived in court Tuesday to give testimony but sat stolidly as a psychiatrist testified that he's mentally incapable of handling financial affairs.
-Sterling was ordered to take the witness stand after failing to appear for the start of the lawsuit trial on Monday afternoon. His lawyers are challenging the authority of Shelly Sterling under a family trust to unilaterally cut a deal for the team with former Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer.
In order to be able to make the deal herself, Shelly Sterling had two doctors examine her husband and they declared him mentally incapacitated and unable to act as an
administrator of The Sterling Family Trust, which owns the Clippers. The Sterlings sat across from each other in Superior Court as lawyers prepared to question the 80-yearold billionaire in the non-jury trial. The NBA has moved to oust Sterling from team ownership because of racist remarks he made to a girlfriend, and a neurologist hired by his wife testified Monday that she believed he has Alzheimer's disease. A psychiatrist also hired by Shelly Sterling testified Tuesday that he drew the same conclusion after examining Sterling in May. Dr. James Sparr said Sterling was friendly, relaxed and cooperative until a final question challenged his abilities.
A frustrated Sterling then said, "'I have to go,' and walked out of the room," Sparr said.
Sparr's report concluded that
Sterling showed early signs of the debilitating mental condition and concluded that "he is substantially unable to manage his finances and resist fraud and malfeasance and is no longer competent to act as a trustee of his trust." Sterling's lawyers contend he's capable of managing financial affairs. Sterling showed no emotion during Sparr's testimony. However, he pulled his wife over as they got up to leave for a break and kissed her. She wiped away a tear as they parted.
NBA owners are scheduled to vote on the Ballmer deal on July 15. It's also the day that Ballmer's offer is set to expire - and there is no deal without the judge's approval of the sale.
If the sale isn't completed by Sept. 15, the league said it could seize the team and put it up for auction.

Westrbook won't play with US team this summer
USA Basketball says Oklahoma City guard Russell Westbrook will not participate this summer so he can rest some previous knee injuries. Chairman Jerry Colangelo says Tuesday that USA Basketball had been communicating with
Westbrook since the end of the season and knew his withdrawal was a possibility.
Westbrook was a member of the Americans' gold medal-winning teams at the 2010 World Championship and 2012 Olympics. He has had multiple knee operations since, though was able to help the Thunder reach the Western Conference finals.
Hairston to appear in court
The Associated Press
- Charlotte Hornets rookie guard PJ. Hairston is scheduled to appear in Durham County Court next month on misdemeanor charges of assault and battery following an altercation at a pickup basketball game on Sunday.
Paul Sherwin, the public information officer for the Durham County Sheriff's
Office, said Hairston, 21, was issued a summons on Monday but will not be arrested.
Hairston practiced with the Hornets on Monday, but did not talk to the media. He issued a statement through the team apologizing to the organization and its fans for "creating a distraction."
"As this is now a legal matter, I cannot comment on the situation any further," Hairston said.
In this June 17 file photo, Miami Heat's LeBron James gestures as he answers a question during a news conference in Miami. LeBron James held meetings for more than three hours in a Las Vegas hotel on Tuesday leaving without giving any indication of what team he'll play for next season.
LeBron holds meetings inm Las Vegas
The Associated Press
LAS VEGAS - LeBron James worked out and had a meeting agenda Tuesday.
In another summer of NBA Free Agent 'Frenziness, if James knows where he will be playing next season, he still isn't saying. Asked by The Associated Press how free agency was going when his afternoon meeting agenda was apparently complete, the four-time MVP said "no complaints." He offered a quick greeting, and provided no hints of anything
-- including when his next "Decision" will be known
- before leaving with a wave.
The entire exchange lasted about eight seconds. James, who has been relatively quiet while weighing his options, never broke stride.
He was upstairs in an exclusive part of a Las Vegas hotel Tuesday, holding court for a little more than three hours before emerging in the lobby, walking toward his assembled brain, trust - including longtime manager Maverick Carter and Nike representatives, a sponsor of the LeBron James Skills Academy he'll be hosting in Las Vegas starting Wednesday
- and got whisked away.
James is expected to meet with Miami Heat President Pat Riley before making a final decision on his NBA future, and a person close to the situation said that meeting had not happened as of Tuesday afternoon. The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because no one has publicly announced the date of the meeting. Some of James' representatives have met with' several teams, including the Cleveland Cavaliers. After filming a TV commercial in Coral Gables, Florida on Monday, James flew to Las Vegas, which was planned because of his academy. Later this week, he's expected to travel to Brazil to the World Cup final.
He took time to Tuesday morning to work out with Dwyane Wade in Las Vegas before his meetings, another person close to the situation told the AP. Like James, Wade has also not announced his plans for next season and beyond, though it is still largely expected that the 2006 NBA Finals MVP and three-time champion will remain in Miami.
James' future remains anyone's guess. And it appears the buildup to his second foray into
free-agent '/craziness will last longer than the one that culminated in him going to Miami in 2010. He made that announcement on July 8, 2010 - exactly four years ago Tuesday. Unlike 2010, James has kept a much .lower profile during his courtship. While he was on a family vacation, his agent, Rich Paul, met in Cleveland with the Cavs as well as the Houston Rockets, Dallas Mavericks, Los Angeles, Lakers and Phoenix Suns, all of whom pitched plans, as to why the 29-year-old superstar should sin with them.
James wanted to con-
tain the madness that surrounded his first foray into free agency four years ago, but the growth of social media has turned the past week into an endless storm of rumors, speculation and baseless media reports. While James may be nearing an announcement, that won't come until he's met with Riley. And the Heat have been making moves as well, announcing Monday that they intend to sign forwards Danny Granger and Josh McRoberts, two free agents to bolster their roster.

Dear Annie: The "fad" of gluten-free
products is both beneficial and harmful to those of us who must follow a glutenfree diet because of celiac disease. On one hand, it's easier to find gluten7freefoods.,.. But on the other hand, those of us with, celiac disease are looked upon as if we are simply food faddists. Here are some of the problems we face:
-, Restaurants are more aware of the need to serve gluten-free meals, but are often sloppy in their attempts to avoid crossc.ontamination; not being aware of the extreme importance of "not even a crumb." When a hostess declares a dish to be. gluten-free, does she understand the restrictions of wheat, rye and barley? Will she'be kind to us if we question her recipes?
When we are at a dinner, we often hear such ignorant comments as, "Are you
trying to improve your athletic performance?" or "Go ahead, a little won't hurt you. Don't be so fussy." : Can you help educate the public about the difference between celiac disease, .which necessitates a gluten-free diet for medical reasons, and those who are simply making a personal choice
- CHERYL IN PENNSYLVANIA
Dear Cheryl:No one should treat eating restrictions as a "fad," because you never know who truly has a serious problem. In people with celiac disease, eating anything with gluten triggers an immune response. It can damage the small intestine and make it difficult to absorb nutrients from food. Left untreated, celiac disease can lead to anemia, osteoporosis and lymphoma. In children, celiac disease can slow growth and weaken bones. There is oftena genetic component.
Simone de Beauvoir, a French writer, said, "I tore myself away from the safe comfort of certainties through my love for truth- and truth rewarded me." At the bridge table, the truth is that we love certainties - lines of play or defense' that are guaranteed to work In this deal, is there a way for South to make sure of six no-trump, given that clubs are not breaking 5-0?
South's two-idiamond rebid was fourthsuit game-forcing. When North bid four hearts, he showed a minimum opening bid. With extras he would have controlbid (cue-bid) four clubs. South signed off in six no-trump to protect his diamond holding, expecting North's values to be in his long suits.
Declarer starts with 10 top tricks: two spades, five hearts, one diamond and two clubs. His plan should be to win four club tricks - but how? The club nine in South's hand makes getting four tricks a near-certainty. After winning the first trick with his spade ace, declarer should play a club to dummy's ace, then return a low club and cover East's eight with his nine. Here, that ends South's problems. But if his nine were to lose to the 10, the suit would be splitting 3-2 and the contract would be home. Finally, if East shows out on the second round of clubs, de-
clarer wins with his king and leads back throughWest's queen up to North's jack. Note that six hearts can be made by taking the same safety-play.

economic, historical, environmental, legal, and safety considerations. Where there is no opportunity to relocate, FEMA is required to undertake a detailed review to determine what measures may be taken to minimize future damages. The public is invited to participate in the process of identifying alternatives and analyzing their impacts.
FEMA has determined that for certain types of facilities there are normally no alternatives to restoration in the floodplain or wetland. These are facilities that meet all of the following criteria: 1) FEMA's estimate of the cost of repairs is less than 50% of the cost to replace the entire facility and is less than $100,000; 2) the facility is not located in a floodway; 3) the facility has not sustained major structural damage in a previous Presidentially declared flooding disaster or emergency; and 4) the facility is not critical (e.g., the facility is not a hospital, generating plant, emergency operations center, or a facility that contains dangerous materials). FEMA intends to'provide assistance for the restoration of these facilities to their predisaster condition, except that certain measures to mitigate the effect of future flooding or other hazards may be included In the work. For example, a bridge or culvert restoration may include a larger waterway opening to decrease the risk of future washouts.
For routine activities, this will be the only public notice provided. Other activities and those involving facilities that do not meet the four criteria are required to undergo more detailed review, including study of alternate locations. Subsequent public notices regarding such projects will be published if necessary, as more specific information becomes available.
In many cases, an applicant may have started facility restoration before federal involvement. Even if the facility must undergo detailed review and analysis of alternate locations, FEMA will fund eligible restoration at the original location if the facility is functionally dependent on its floodplain location (e.g., bridges and flood control facilities), or the project facilitates an open space use, or the facility is an integral part of a larger network that is impractical or uneconomical to relocate, such as a road. In such cases, FEMA must also examine the possible effects of not restoring the facility, minimizing floodplain or wetland impacts, and determining both that an overridin public need for the facility clearly outweighs the Executive Order requirements to avoid the floodplain or wetland, and that the site is the only practicable alternative. State of Florida and local officials will confirm to FEMA that proposed actions comply with all applicable state and local floodplain management and wetland protection requirements.
FEMA intends to provide IA program funding for disaster-related emergency housing. These actions may adversely affect a floodplain or wetland, or may result in continuing vulnerability to floods. These actions may include repair, restoration, or construction of housing or private bridges,-purchase and placement of travel trailers or manufactured housing units, or repair of structures as minimum protective measures. This will be the only public notice concerning these actions.
FEMA also intends to provide HMGP funding to the state of Florida to mitigate future disaster damages. These projects may include construction of new facilities, modification of existing, undamaged facilities, relocation of facilities out of floodplains, demolition of structures, or other types of projects to mitigate.future disaster damages. In the course of developing project proposals, subsequent public notices will be published if necessary as more specific information becomes available.
The National Historic Preservation Act requires federal agencies to take into account the effect of their undertakings on historic properties. Those actions or activities affecting buildings, structures, districts or objects 50 years or older or that affect archeological sites or undisturbed ground will require further review to determine if the property is eligible for listing in the National Register of Historic Places (Register). If the property is determined to be eligible for the Register and FEMA's undertaking will adversely affect it, FEMA will provide additional public notices. For historic properties not adversely affected by FEMA's undertaking, this will be the only public notice.
As noted, this may be the only public notice regarding the above-described actions under the PA, IA, and HMGP programs. Interested persons may obtain information about these actions or a specific project by contacting the Federal Emergency Management Agency in writing at 3003 Chamblee-Tucker Road, Atlanta, GA 30341, Attention: Regional Environmental Officer within 15 days of the date of this notice.
