Discover geocaching at Florida's state parks and trails
Special to the Floridan
Adding to the already dynamic recreational opportunities at Florida state parks, the availability of geocaching is now expanding at many locations around the state.
The Florida Department of Environmental Protection's Florida State Parks is excited to begin offering Operation Recreation
GeoTour, hosted by Geocaching. com.
Geocaching is an outdoor game using hand-held GPS devices or smartphones. The game is an inexpensive, interactive high-tech treasure hunt that teaches geography and outdoor recreation skills. Participants use location coordinates to find caches. Some caches are easy to find; others are more difficult.
"Geocaching is a popular activity at Florida's state parks," said Donald Forgione, director of the Florida Park Service. "The biggest reward is not finding the cache. It's discovering a place where you've never been or seeing a familiar place in a new way." The new GeoTour stretches from Pensacola to Key West and includes 74 state parks and state trails. With Operation Recreation
GeoTour, visitors will be inspired by the recreation opportunities and scenic beauty, which help strengthen families, educate children and foster community pride. The first 75 cachers to visit 40 different caches will earn the Official Operation Recreation Geocoit.
Cachers can visit the GeoTours webpage to view each one of the 70 caches and download the Of-
ficial Tracking Sheet to begin the geocaching adventure. If you need help finding a cache, hiding a cache or understanding some of the geocaching vocabulary, please visit the Florida State Parks Geocaching webpage. Geocaching should have minimal impact to the environment and conscientious land-use ethics should be followed when participating in the activity.
Child rapist, killer set to be executed in Fla.
The Associated Press
LAKELAND - A man convicted of the 1994 rape and killing of an 11-year-old Florida girl is set to be executed Thursday with the' victim's grandmother watching from the witness chamber on behalf of the child and her deceased mother.
EddieWayne Davis, 45, is scheduled to receive a three-drug injection at 6 p.m: at Florida State Prison for his 1995 conviction on a charge of first-degree murder in the death of Kimberly Waters, whose mother had briefly dated Davis. It would be the sixth execution in Florida this year and the second in the state since the death. penalty came under fresh scrutiny in April.
In late April, Oklahoma prison officials halted the execution of inmate Clayton Lockett after noting that the lethal injection drugs weren't being administered into his vein properly. The procedure was stopped but he died of a hart attack several minutes later. In Florida, three members of Kimberly's family say they plan to witness Davis' final moments. Mary Hobbs, Kimberly's grand-
mother, said her daughter - Kimberly's mother - was killed in a
Hobbs said she feels a special duty this week in seeing
Davis put to death.
"I need to be there
to represent my Davis daughter and my
granddaughter," she said. "My daughter never lived to see this happen and that just breaks my heart." Kimberly's mother, Beverly Schfiultz, had broken up with Davis after learning about his criminal history,.Hobbs said. Davis had served prison sentences for a string of burglaries. They broke up six months before Kimberly's slaying. Davis told police he broke into a home in the central Florida community of Lakeland on March 3, 1994, looking for beer money and said he didn't think anyone was home.
According to court documents and detectives, Davis found Kimberly sleeping in her mother's bed while her mother was working a double shift at a nursing home. He gagged her so she wouldn't wake up her 13-year-old sister in
Prosecutors said Davis took the 11-year-old girl to a trailer, raped her and later beat her. Kimberly fought back as Davis suffocated her by pressing' plastic over her face. His DNA was found under her fingernails. When she stopped breathing, he threw her body in a commercial trash bin. "I feel he was striking back at (my daughter)," Hobbs told The Associated Press recently. "But it was senseless."
In 1995, he was convicted by a jury in Polk County, a central Florida county in between Tampa and Orlando.
Florida uses three drugs - midazolam hydrochloride, vecuronium bromide and potassium chloride - for executions. The drugs are administered intravenously, intended to induce unconsciousness, paralysis and cardiac arrest. Midazolam, a sedative routinely used in surgery, has been part of the three-drug mixture since 2013. Previously, sodium thiopental was used, but its U.S. manufacturer stopped making it and Europe has banned its manufacturers from exporting it for executions. Other states use the same three
drugs, and they were administered in the April execution in Oklahoma.
Davis has appealed his death sentence, maintaining that he suffers from a rare medical condition that would cause him extreme abdominal pain, nausea and vomiting after the first drug is injected. His lawyers said that the pain would violate the constitutional prohibition on cruel and unusual punishment.
On Monday, the Florida Supreme Court rejected his argument. Other appeals to the U.S. District Court and the U.S. Supreme Court are possible.
Hobbs said she wants the world to know that Kimberly's family still cares about her and still remembers her life - Kimberly loved being in nature, butterflies and wildflowers.,
"After 20 years, it still hurts," said Hobbs. "It makes you wonder, what would she have become?" Florida's last execution happened June 18. John Ruthell Henry, who was convicted of killing his estranged wife and her son, was put to death; he was among three people who were executed in 4he U.S. during a 241-hour span in June.

confirmed in S Fla MIAMI - Health officials say a 50-year-old Miami-Dade County woman is the state's first case of locally acquired dengue fever so far this year. The Florida Department of Health's administrator in Miami-Dade County said Wednesday that the woman has fully recovered.
The dengue fever virus is transmitted by mosquitoes. Its symptoms include high fevers and severe muscle and joint pain. There's no specific medication or vaccine. Dengue fever is widespreadin other parts of the world, but local officials hope to contain it whenever it appears in the U.S. According to state health officials, 24 cases of dengue fever have been confirmed in Florida this year in patients who recently traveled to South America and the Caribbean.
Last year, 23 cases of locally acquired dengue were confirmed in Florida.
charged after dog
dies in hot car
CRESTVIEW- A Florida woman faces animal cruelty charges following the death of a dog that authorities say was left in her car for more than 13 hours.
Crestview police detectives say the woman appeared to have mental health issues and told them a head injury causes her to forget things. The woman said she forgot that she left the bulldog mix in her SUV overnight while she wandered aWalmart Supercenter in Florida's Panhandle last month.
The car was left running with the air conditioner on, but officers said air had stop circulating before the dog died. An officer had checked on the dog earlier that morning and determined the dog was fine in the air conditioned car. Passers-by called police several hours later after the dog died in the hot car.
Prison guard guilty of stealing inmates' IDs TAMPA - A Florida
Prison guard has pleaded guilty to charges associated with stealing personal information from state corrections databases and using it to file 182 fraudulent income tax returns to get refunds.
The U.S. Attorney Office in Tampa reports that 26-year-old Jerry St. Fleur pleaded guiltyWednesday in federal court to wire fraud and aggravated identity theft. He faces up to 20 years in prison.
Prosecutors say St. Fleur stole personal information for current and former inmates by cutting and pasting the info from
Florida Department of Corrections databases. St. Fleur, who worked at the Zephyrhills Correctional Facility, used the information to file fraudulent tax returns seeking refunds of more than $500,000.
The FBI, IRS and the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office all participated in the investigation.
Public defenders fired for anti-Arab
- Two South Florida public defenders have lost their jobs after derogatory remarks about Palestinians appeared on their Facebook pages. Broward County Public Defender Howard Finkelstein told local television stations that Bruce Raticoff and Gary Sheres were fired Tuesday after comments on Facebook referred to Palestinians as "filthy swine" and "cockroaches." The remarks were written under a post which claimed Palestinians were celebrating the kidnapping and murder of three SIsraeli teens.
Raticoff said a relative used his Facebook account to make the comment. He told television stations that he has a right to free speech. Sheres said he was referring to the Palestinians accused of killing the teens. They both had been
disciplined in 2005 for an
inflammatory email which included the language "extreme Muslims."
Police warn of
BOYNTON BEACH S- Police say a 72-yearold woman is out $12,000 after falling victim to a scam involving a fake IRS representative.
The woman told Boynton Beach she received a call on Monday from a man claiming to be from the IRS. He told her she'd be arrested if she didn't make an immediate payment.
The victim was instructed to buy 24 Green Dot prepaid cards for $500 each. She then called the man back with the card numbers. When he
called back to say the IRS needed another $12,000, she realized it was a scam and called her son. They contacted police. Police say another Boynton Beach woman fell for the same scam last month. Police say the scam is so sophisticated that the calls appear to come from the IRS.,

Obama to border critics: 'This is not theater'
The Associated Press
DALLAS - President Barack Obama, seeking to keep a humanitarian crisis at the U.S.-Mexico border from becoming a deeper political liability, pushed back Wednesday at' critics who have cast his administration's response to the influx of unaccompanied children as slow and ineffective. To those pressing Obama to visit the border during his two-day trip to Texas, he retorted: "This is not theater. This is a problem." Among Obama's harshest critics has been Texas Gov. Rick Perry, a 2012 Republican presidential candidate who is mulling another run for the White House. Perry greeted Obama upon his arrival in the state

Derrick Johnson can attest.
"'She's famous in our family for a saying," Johnson said. "When it's time to get together for something, sooner or later she'll say, 'we're gonna have an all-night shake and a four-night break. Them that don't shake don't get no cake,' he recalled.
"I think she's excited about Saturday. Right now in her life, the only big negative thing is the loneliness that she sometimes feels. All of her brothers and sisters are gone, and so many of the people she knows have died. For people to come and fellowship together at her house, I don't think anything could please her more. Everyone is welcome to come and, by being there, show the recognition of being glad she's still with us."
Johnson said he practically grew up at her elbow. Even though she had her own children to raise and also raised two of her sister's'children while working as a caretaker for the children of other families, she still had time for young people in the neighborhood.
"Some of my earliest memories of childhood involve her," Johnson said. "When I was growing up, I lived around the corner from her and

He brings her things from the garden he knows how to grow because of her, goes to the grocery store for her and helps other family members take care of things she might need. She's as active as she can be in the community, herself, having served about a month ago on a church program committee.
Johnson said her value in his life is immeasurable. "She has always had and preached a philosophy that you should treat everyone nice and be kind, because first of all it's the right thing to do and second because she believed that what goes around comes around. She never met any strangers, always opened her heart. Because she's like that, she has always been willing to share what she has and what she knows. I'm always trying to learn as much as can from her because I want to pass some of that knowledge on down to other generations." Worlds said she's ready for one more "all-night shake" on Saturday, and that she's feeling good at this age.
"I've had pretty good health all my life," she said. "I didn't know if I'd get to be 100, but if live, I'll see it Saturday. You never how long you're going to be able to go down the road. I'm happy to be getting there, it looks like, and I try to keep enjoying my life while I've got it."

She would encourage me to get my education, and right now I'm pursuing a teaching degree. My desire to go further and learn more, a lot of that goes back to her. When she was growing up, a lot of kids didn't have the opportunity to go and further their educations. She knew the value of it, and she knew it was an avenue to go down if you want to make

arrangement similar to the town's deal with that agency.
To save money in the master plan review process, which costs the submitting body more than $1,000, the two have joined forces to submit their proposed changes to the plan for those lands in a single document. Some of the things they want to do could take years and many grant dollars. Neither the town nor the county are looking to make sweeping changes all at once, but they do want a
master plan in place which gives them authorization to make the changes when the time comes for the various phases of work they envision.
The county has proposed adding utilities and improving the campsites at Neal's Landing and perhaps adding a concession spot there.
It wants the ability to add pull-through campsites at Parramore's Landing, develop nature trails, and provide more amenities for the pavilion that already exists there. It wants to possibly add a canoelkayak launch and make other visitor-friendly changes. The county also sees po-
tential for improvements to Howell's Landing, incliding some restroom facilities, more parking, and a picnic area. To accomplish that, the county needs more space in its Howell's Landing lease. Currently, the lease includes three acres. To get about seven more adjoining acres included in the lease, the county must also deal with the Florida Department of Environmental Protection, which currently has control of the extra desired acreage in its own sublease with the Corps. This week, Jackson County Commissioners agreed to move forward with a letter requesting that
the Corps add the seven acres to the county lease. County officials indicated that, thus far, DEP has expressed no objection to releasing those lands to the safekeeping bf the county, because, while the land is adjacent to the state's Three Rivers State Park on the lake, the acreage in question is currently not part of the developed park. That agency was provided a copy of the proposed master plan in mid-June. Submitting the master plan changes now and sorting out any issues at this stage with a goal of approval, said Jackson County Parks and Recreation Director Chuck Hatcher,
is a strategy that not only clears obstacles for poten-' tial changes in the near future, it could help smooth the way on projects that may not even see the light of day until a decade or
two down the road. The existing master plan has not been altered since 1985, and county officials say it needs an upgrade if the county and Sneads expect to take full advantage of the tourism potential on the lake.

DIXIE YOUTH DARLINGS STATE TOURNAMENT
All-Stars ready to play
KRISTIE CLOUD/ FLORIDAN
Sneads Darlings All-Star Jadyn Riano (14) gets a base hit in a game June 23.
Sneads hopes experience pays at state tournament
BY DUSTIN KENT
The Sneads Darlings All-Stars will begin their run towards what they hope istheir first-ever state championship Fridaywhen they take on Belleview to open play in the Dixie Youth Darlings State Tournament in Okeechobee.
It's the second straight year in which Sneads has made it to state, going 2-2 in last year's tournament in Brooksville with a 7-5 loss to Hemnando ending their run. Sneads gets another shot thanks to a dramatic 10-9 district championship victory over Marianna on June 23 at Optimist Park.
The All-Stars have to feel good about their chances the second time around thanks to six returning players from last year's squad whose experience Sneads coach Steve Sprouse said she pay dividends in this tourney. "Those six girls have experience playing in that environment already, so I think
that will be a big help," he said. "Playing that far away from home against girls they've probably never even seen, they did well last year. Already being down therewith all that extra hooplaand stuff, they will have already seen that, so this year they can just be down there to play ball.
"Some of the other girls we're taking are older girls, so I don't think it will be a shock for them playing down there either. I feel like they'll go down there and play good ball. I think they're ready to go down there and compete."
Sneads was certainly competitive in last year's tournament, taking wins of 9-4 over Mulberry and 12-9 over Belleview with two close losses to Hernando by scores of 5-4 in seven innings and 7-5 in the elimination game.
Sprouse said he was proud of the team's performance last season - especially considering it was just the second year for the Darlings program - but he wants this group to surpass that effort in this
"I'd say we're going dovwin there with high hopes to make a good showing," he said. "We hope to improve on the two, winswe got last year and win four orfivye,. which would hopefully make us the state champs. That's our goal. We're trying to improve on those wins and bring back a state championship."
The field is again formidable and features some familiar faces such as Belleview and Spring Hill, as Well as defending state champion Holmes (ounty,
But Sprouse said he knows his team be-, longs on the field with any of them.
"I feel like we can match up with any team down," he said. "If we play defense and hit the ball like we can, I knowwe can compete with anybody down there."
The first game will be 10:30 a.m. Central Daylight Time, with the winner to take on the winner of Spring Hill vs. Okeechobee on Saturday at 10:30 a.m., and the loser to fae the loser of that game Saturday at 8 a.m.
James meets with Riley
The Associated Press
LAS VEGAS -- Pat Riley has gotten his chance at convincing LeBron James to stay in Miami, said a person familiar with the situation.
The Miami Heat president met with the four-time NBA MVP on Wednesday afternoon in Las Vegas, the person told The Associated Press. James, his agent Rich Paul, Riley and Heat executive Andy Elisburg were at the meeting, the person said, speaking on
condition of anonymity because neither side publicly announced who would be attending the meeting or when it would take place.
It was unclear whether James informed Riley where he would play next season, the person said.
SThe meeting took place more than two weeks after James opted out of his contract and elected to become a free agent and the day before free agents may begin signing contracts. James spent part of his day be-
fore the meeting at his annual skills academy with some of the nation's top high school and college players, interacting and observing workouts. That was part of the reason why Riley had to fly across the country to make the meeting happen, with hopes that he would return to Miami from the gambling haven with a huge win - keeping James in Heat colors for at least another season.
Several teams have met with

Argentina reaches World Cup final after penalties
Argentina's Maxi Rodriguez celebrates after scoring thewinning kick during a shootout at the end of the match between the Netherlands and Argentina in Sao Paulo Brazil on Wednesday. Argentina won 4-2 on penalties after the match ended 0-0 after extra time. .. .
The Associated Press
SAO PAULO- Goalkeeper Sergio Romero saved two penalties Wednesday to send Argentina into the World Cup final with a 42 shootout win over the Netherlands after the game finished in a 0-0 stalemate.
A day after Germany lit up the World Cup with its clinical 7-1 destruction of host Brazil, the Netherlands and Argentina could not manage a goal between them in 120 minutes before the shootout.
Romero - thought to be a weak link in this Argentine team and not even a starter for his Monaco club most of last season - blocked penalties by Ron Vlaar and Wesley Sneijder. For Argentina, Lionel Messi, Ezequiel Garay, Sergio Aguero and Maxi Rodriguez all converted their spot kicks.
Argentina will play Germany in Sunday's final at the Maracana Stadium in Rio de Janeiro. That means Brazilians will have to watch their fiercest rivals play for the world title in their most
hallowed stadium, bringing the country's World Cup to an extra bitter end.
It was the second straight penaltyshootoutfollowinga0-0 draw for the Dutch. Against Costa Rica in the quarterfinals, coach Louis van Gaal brought on substitute goalkeeper Tim Krul in the last seconds of extra time to replace Jasper Cillessen and Krul saved two efforts.
This time, Van Gaal had used up all three substitutions by the end of extra time and Cillessen had to face the shootout.

For those who have been around NASCAR for a long time, Daytona International Speedway has served up two sentimental journeys over the past four years.
The latest was Aric Alrhirola delivering.Richard Petty's No. 43 Ford to Daytona Victory Lane on Sunday afternoon in the rain-postponed, then rain-shortened Coke Zero 400.
Petty ruled the 2.5-mile tri-oval for three decades in cars carrying that competition number. The "King of Stock Car Racing" won seven NASCAR Cup Series championships and seven Daytona 500s as the driver of the No. 43 car.
Since the mid-1980s, the wins rapidly decreased. Petty stayed on as driver until 1992, then turned car owner, but only saw three wins With Bobby Hamilton and John Andretti, the last driver to win in the No. 43 in 1999.
Aric Almirola, the 43rd driver of the No. 43 car, got the King's ride back to Victory Lane on Sunday at Daytona.
One of the biggest congratulations was given by Wood Brothers Racing co-owner Eddie Wood. The Woods' No. 21 Ford is another NASCAR team that carries a lot of Cup Series history.
Trevor Bayne captured the 2011 SDaytona 500 in the No. 21 car in
another highly sentimental moment
for the longtime race fan.
"We're really happy for Richard, Dale (Inman), Aric and the rest of
the team," Wood said. "It was a big
day for the sport as a whole to
have theNo. 43 car in Victory
Lane at Daytona on the 30th
anniversary of Richard's 200th win and on the day that our good friend Barney Hall retired from the MRN broadcast booth."
It was a great day for NASCAR oldtimers, but oddly, Petty wasn't feeling it.
"Well, 30 years ago is history, OK, and today is future," he said. "Today is today."
The days of "Bill France weather" are apparently over as the Daytona 500 and Coke Zero 400 were dogged by rain.this season. The 400 was postponed a day, but Daytona Beach residents don't want to think about the last time the race had to be rescheduled. The year was 1998, and the 400 was postponed from its July date to the middle of October because of Wildfires due to extreme drought conditions. Daytona area residents have no problem with rain when compared with rampant wildfires.
TNT racing analyst Larry McReynolds made a keen observation following the 16-car melee on Lap 20 of the Coke Zero 400. He said: "When I look at the drivers involved in this wreck, we've had 10 different winners in 2014 and it's been a long time since we've had someone new win a race this year. When I look at the drivers involved, this opens the door to get our 11th winner." Bingo! Nailed it, Larry.
V Z- '
It wasn't the traditional "Petty Blue" of generations past, and there was no checkered flag at the end, but Aric Almirola and Richard Petty Motorsports put the King's chariot back in Victory Lane.
GODWIN'S DAYTONA PICKS

Winner: Denny Hamlin Rest of the top five: Clint Bowyer, Matt Kenseth, Joey Logano, Greg Biffle
Dark horse: Kyle Larson
Disappointment: Joey Logano First one out: Justin Allgaier SDon't be surprised if: There's a lot of beating and banging on this 1-mile track.
Associated Press/TERRY RENNA A Coke and a smile ... he doesn't consider it watered-down.. Will Almirola's win jump-start him and the No. 43 to another' level?
Perhaps indirectly, at best. Getting a victory, whether it comes via last-lap pass or timely rainstorm, can create a different vibe around a team, which in turn can possibly open doors with potential sponsors. Which, as you know, occasionally leads to more horsepower through the old "cubic dollars" formula.
Is that a yes?
Didn't.you notice the interspersing of the words "perhaps," "possibly," "potential" and "occasionally"? Yes, Almirola's "win" might open some doors that will lead down a hallway to something helpful. But the 43 team' came to Daytona last week 23rd in points for a reason. Working your way to the front at a plate race where nearly every high-rent team had been wrecked out, and being up front when the curtain-closing storm hit, doesn'tsuddenly make you a front-runner.
So Alex Bowman shouldn't be excited with his 13th-place finish?
Good one. Listen, someday Alex Bowman might overachieve to the point that he gets a shot with topline equipment, and then he might produce and become a household name. But none of that will be due to a 13th-place finish in a rainshortened plate race. Ken Willis has been covering NASCAR foir The Daytona Beach NewsJournal for 27 years.

Junior's shot at double-dipping Daytona didn't go as hoped
The Coke Zero 400 didn't go the way Dale Earnhardt Jr. had hoped. Just before NASCAR called the race after 112 laps, Earnhardt spoke about his day at Daytona International Speedway.
You've had an eventful day?
"We are just trying to get out there and see if we can get a good finish. Anybody can still win this race. My car is pretty tore up. The left-front splitter looks a little high, and I think the balance of the car is real tight.
"When I get into the pack and get behind guys
real close, I've got to use up a lot of race track on the exit of the corner. We've got to figure out what we can do to get better there. Hopefully the rain goes away and we get going." Even with the damage, you think you have a car good enough to be able to win?
"Anybody can still win it. Anything can happen. There can still be another big wreck, but I just don't know. I don't know how it's going to stack up. Our car is at a pretty rough spot as far as speed and handling. If it thins out even more it's going to handle better."
You did a good job of avoiding that last wreck.
"It's easy to just come to a stop as long as nobody runs into you. We were going to be fine on that first wreck, but we got run over. I can't believe all of the cars we have wrecked today. It's kind of uncharacteristic, but it's just how it works sometimes."
Why has it been that way?
"Daytime race, it's a little bit slicker. The cars are moving around a little bit more, and guys are being a bit more aggressive here.
"You don't see us all lined up on the top running around there trying not to go to the back. Guys are running side by side. The package is really keeping the pack pretty tight, and guys are running side by side from the lead on back. "If you're gonna run tight like that, you're gonna have mistakes, or cars just get moved around by the air. Heck, a guy could just be holding the wheel and the car will move three feet, depending on what is happening around him. Sometimes you just get yourself in a bad spot."

Dear Annie: I read your response to
"Concerned Old Man in West Hills," who didn't understand why his niece was upset when he told her she was fat. You said it was rude to comment on one's appearance.
Why in hell do you think pointing out that someone is fat is so rude? They are obese, and they are killing themselves. What's the big deal in saying so? I am 78 years old and weigh the same as I did in high school though effort and sacrifice. Give me a break!
- NOT A RUDE GUY, JUST HONEST
Dear Not: The fact that something may be true does not make it less rude. Would Syou say, "My goodness, that's an ugly baby!" or "You are really unattractive"? It is not OK to disparage someone's size when they already know they are heavy and you have no idea whether there are underlying reasons or whether they've been working hard on it. It can be especially galling when someone who never has had a weight problem thinks he knows enough to pass judgment. More importantly, it doesn't help the other per-
son lose weight, so being rude is simply a form of self-indulgence. Whatever effort and sacrifice you put into maintaining your weight might now be put to good use learning to be kinder.
Dear Annie: My heart broke after reading the letter from "Lonely in Love," whose husband doesn't pay any atten:tion to her after three years of marriage. As someone who has been in the same situation, I thought you gave her good advice. I'd like to add that she should give herself a timeline for change. Otherwise, she will just be older and lonelier with less self-esteem.

You are in a no-trump contract and the opponents lead a suit in which you have only one top-trick stopper. (This is usually the ace, but might be the king if third hand takes the first trick with the ace.) How long do you hold up that stopper? In this example deal, South is in three no-trump. What should he do after West leads his fourth-highest spade and East puts up the queen? Declarer has seven top tricks: one spade, one heart, four diamonds and one club. The other two winners will come from clubs, but if that finesse loses, the defenders might take five black-suit tricks first. How long should declarerhold up his spade ace? To answer that question, typically he applies the Rule of Seven. He adds togetherithe number of cards in the suit led that are in the dummy and his hand. He subtracts the total from seven and holds up for that number of rounds.
Here, six from seven is one. So South ducks the first trick, takes the second trick with his spade ace, and runs the

club 10. It loses, but the contract is safe. Note two things. First, if East has a third spade, the suit would be breaking 4-3 and declarer would lose only three spades and one club. Second, if South ducks two rounds of spades, West ought to shift to the heart king. Then the defenders will take two spades, two hearts and one club.

Hornets to sign Hayward to offer sheet
The Associated Press
- The Charlotte Hornets are going all out to sign restricted free agent Gordon Hayward.
The Hornets have agreed on a maximum offer sheet with Hayward that would pay the small forward $63 million over the next four years, a person close to with the situation told The Associated Press on Wednesday.
The Utah Jazz would have three days to match the deal once Hayward officially signs.
The person commented to the AP on condition of

anonymity because Hayward can't officially sign the offer sheet until Thursday when the league lifts its moratorium on signing
The person also said the Hornets have spoken to representatives for free agents Marvin Williams
and Brian Roberts and will meet with them later this week. Williams would give the Hornets another option at forward and Roberts would fill the backup point guard spot behind Kemba Walker. The Charlotte Observer
was the first to report the news. Williams spent the last two seasons with Utah after six years with the Atlanta Hawks. He started 50 games last season for the Jazz and averaged 9.1 points and 5.1 rebounds. It's unclear at this point if the Jazz would match the offer to keep Hayward or consider a sign-and-trade with Charlotte.
Sterling says he
won't sell team, calls
LOS ANGELES - A raging Donald Sterling denounced his wife, her lawyers and the NBA from the witness stand and said he would never sell the
Los Angeles Clippers. Sterling, his voice rising to a shout in an otherwise quiet courtroom Wednesday, vowed to spend the rest of his life suing the league.
Sterling said his wife, Shelly, had deceived him, that she was not capable
of understanding the family trust, and that he did not authorize her to strike a deal to sell the team.
He was followed to the witness stand by Shelly Sterling, who declared her love for him, but says she was convinced he
needed to be examined for Alzheimer's disease. As she was leaving the witness stand for the day, she tried to approach her husband in the audience. But he shouted "get away, from me you pig!"

AP Source: Cavaliers agree to 3-team trade
The Associated Press
CLEVELAND - The Cavaliers have created salary cap space to make sure they have enough to offer superstar free agent LeBron James a maximum contract. A person familiar with the deals says the Cavs have agreed to trade guard Jarrett Jack, swingman Sergey Karasev and center Tyler Zeller in a three-team deal. The moves are designed to open room under the salary cap so they can land James, the four-time league MVP and most sought after player on the market.
The Cavs have agreements with Brooklyn and Boston, the person told The Associated Press on Wednesday. The person spoke on condition
of anonymity because teams are not permitted to discuss trades until the league's moratorium ends Thursday. The person said Cleveland will receive guard Marcus Thornton from the Nets and send him, Zeller and a future first-round pick to the Celtics. Also, the Cavs. are trading Jack and Karasev to the Nets. Jack, who signed with Cleveland as a free agent last season, was scheduled to make $6.3 million, Zeller will make $1.6 million and Karasev $1.4 million
In trading those salaries, the Cavs have enough to give James a maximum, $20.7 million contract - if he decides to sign with Cleveland. ESPN first reported details of the three-team trade.

Cavaliers' Wiggins inks deal with Adidas
The Associated Press
AndrewWiggins will wear Adidas with the Cleveland Cavaliers.
The No. 1 overall pick in the draft, Wiggins wore the apparel company's gear while starring last season for Kansas. He chose to stick with Adidas rather than sign with a rival such as Nike in what's being called "an unprecedented partnership."

Paul during the free-agent process, but it appears James has only one decision to make: Cleveland or Miami, the same choice he pondered four years ago when he decided play with the Heat. With James, the Heat won four Eastern Conference titles and two NBA championships. The Cavaliers didn't sit idle waiting for James and Riley to meet. Cleveland created salary-cap space earlier Wednesday with a threeteam trade with the Boston Celtics and Brooklyn Nets, ensuring they have enough to offer the James a maximum contract. But James had said he would meet with Riley and the Heat before making his decision.
The meeting came nearly three weeks after Riley addressed reporters following Miami's loss to San

"Joining the Adidas family is a blessing and an honor and I am extremely excited for what lies ahead," Wiggins said in a statement. "Our collaboration couldn't be more organic both personally and professionally and I look forward to moving to the next level with the brand."
Antonio in the NBA Finals, when he insisted that the Heat needed to make some adjustments to get better - but didn't need a massive rebuilding job to stay at a championship level.
"You've got to stay together if you've got the guts, and you don't find the first door and run out of it if you have an opportunity," Riley said on June 19. "This is four years now into this era, this team, four finals. It's only been done three other times before. And two championships. From day one to the end, it was like a Broadway show. Sort of ran out of steam, and we need to retool. We don't need to rebuild, we need to retool, and that's what we're going to do."
