12 counts, and co-defendant Elwood Ladon "Woody" West was found guilty on all but the first count of the indictment. Baker was found guilty on counts 1, 3, 4, 7, 8, 9, 11 and 12. The 19-page indictment can be found on the Floridan website. Baker, Dubose and West had originally been indicted by a grand jury on seven counts of wire fraud, three counts of making false statements to the FDIC, one count of aiding and abetting a false claim against the United States, and a count of conspiracy to commit wire fraud against the FDIC. The three pleaded not
guilty, and were tried together. Baker is scheduled for sentencing in the case on Aug. 21, according to Judkins, and could face several years in prison if he were to receive the maximum penalties possible on the various counts.
Each conviction on conspiracy, wire fraud and making false statements to the FDIC carries a maximum 30-year prison term, and the additional count of causing a false claim to be filed against the United States carries a maximum sentence of five years, according to documents provided by the Florida Bar.

Mosley wins awards at iPOP Showcase in IA
Tirzah Mosley went to Los Angeles, CA January 9-12, to perform at the iPOP Showcase with JRP Acting and Modeling Agency in Orlando. Tirzah represented Florida and competed against many contestants from other states in the United States.
She enjoyed herself and was able to meet Davis Cleveland who plays on "Shake It Up", along with other TV stars. We are very proud of Tirzah, as she returned to Florida with six trophies, two medals and one ribbon.
Tirzah won Child Model of the Year and Child Actor of the Year. She was the winner of Child TV Commercial, Child Swim wear, Child Runway, and Child Photo Print.
She came in third place in Child Monologue and received an Honorable Mention in Child Scene.

ramps have been donated by the Grand Lodge through the Beacon Grant and the harry-Anna Trust Fund from the Florida State Elks Association. For more information, contact the office at 526-2861.
Investment goals help determine portfolio mix
Dear Bruce: Should money in retirement accounts be divided between stocks and bonds or limited to stocks for best returns?
Dear L.R.: If you are looking for a large return, you want to stay with stocks, which have a much better chance of increasing in value.
However, I would not suggest that you limit yourself only to stocks.
Depending upon your age and your goals, your investments should be a
mixture of, for example, 60 percent stock, 40 percent bonds, but that is a determination that requires a lot of information about you and your goals. A balanced account, in most cases, is the way to go.
Tirzah Mosley receiving Award of the Year with David Alston.
Tirzah Mosley at iPop.
Tirzah has received call backs from 23 agencies; and has had one skype interview.
She has signed with one agency which will be announced at a later date. It all began when Tirzah was chosen for Modeling and Acting with the JRP Acting and Modeling
Agency in Orlando, Florida in July 2013.

LOCAL & BUSINESS
in the rough
arianna is fortunate to have numerous buildings and homes that tie the community to its past. Among them is the historic Russ House, which community and governmental support resurrected and has maintained as a focal point of the county's largest city.
Now there's a chance to put another piece of history to good use, and we urge those involved to do what's necessary to see the project to fruition. The historic First National Bank building faces east on Caledonia Street just south of the intersection with Lafayette, overlooking Confederate Park and its memorial obelisk. Last week, Main Street Marianna Director Charlotte Brunner approached the Jackson County Tourism Development Council with a request for $85,000 to be used as matching funds for a $400,000 grant to convert the vacant building into a museum or cultural center. The council wisely held off committing to the project until a more detailed plan is developed, but the group showed interest in the possibilities.
That's good news. Far too often, communities allow structures of historical or architectural significance to fall into disrepair and eventually beyond the point of no return simply because of a lack of vision or interest, or a willingness to invest in what could become a jewel in a community's crown.
We're pleased to see an initiative in motion to put this lovely structure to public use, and applaud those who are working diligently to transform the bank building into a point of pride.
Money earmarked to match a much larger grant is. money well spent. We urge Main Street Marianna, the TDC and other players in this initiative to explore every possibility.
DCF adopts good
G overnment agencies should not waste time and
money trying to prevent access to public records.
Under new leadership, the Florida Department of Children and Families has finally embraced that message and later this month will unveil a promising new website that will give the public unprecedented access to information so they can assess suspicious child deaths and how the agency investigated them. That is the openness Floridians expect from Tallahassee, and it should allow the agency to focus more energy on its mission to protect the state's most vulnerable residents.
A grim series of articles in the Miami Herald this spring, titled "Innocents Lost," detailed that despite prior contact with child welfare authorities, some 477 children in Florida had suffered preventable deaths since 2008. The series prompted legislators to adopt significant changes to the state's child welfare laws and funnel much-needed resources to help reduce workers' caseloads. But a subplot to the stories was the challenge the newspaper faced in actually obtaining access to the records. While DCF turned over some willingly, others were obtained only after the newspaper sued. And just earlier this month, the Herald detailed how for several months starting in November, the Southeast DCF office had failed to accurately record child death cases.
Now new interim DCF Secretary Mike Carroll, the former Suncoast regional director for the agency, said his goal is to set a new national standard for public information. "We need to be more transparent and just move on to doing our jobs," Carroll told the Tampa Bay Times editorial board recently.
Carroll's plan: a new website, that will be accessible at myflfamiies.com, that fulfills the Legislature's new requirements to provide more timely information to the public, but goes even further and may well lay the groundwork for community discussion about how to prevent child deaths locally.
The site will detail every child death reported to the state's abuse hotline. Within 72 hours of a child's death, the public can view the deceased's name, age, date of death and, if it's been determined, the cause of death ard a brief narrative of how the child died. After the cases are closed, a death report will be added. The site also will note whether the deceased's family was previously known to DCE And users will be able to search by county, a tool Carroll anticipates will help DCF tailor education and safety campaigns. Carroll expects the website to debut in about two weeks and feature six years of data by September and 10 years' worth of information by the end of the year.
This is good public policy and a necessary step in shifting the agency from defense to offense. Carroll is welcoming public scrutiny but also displaying faith in his workers. He's honoring Florida's open record laws and simultaneously making a statement that child welfare is far bigger than one state agency. By opening up the books, he's inviting citizens to engage. And most importantly, the move should help shift the conversation from the agency's past mistakes to its current strategies for protecting the vulnerable. That's progress.
Facing the facts on immigration
BY COKIE ROBERTS
AND STEVEN V. ROBERTS
upert Murdoch and Sheldon Adelson are both staunch Republicans. Both are also very practical businessmen -Murdoch owns media companies; Adelson, casinos. They became billionaires by dealing with reality, with hard-learned facts - not soft-headed illusions. That's why both have recently written persuasive articles urging their party to support immigration reform. But on this issue, many of their fellow Republicans continue to prefer fantasy to4facts and ignore the 11 million undocumented immigrants living and working here. When Eric Cantor, the second-ranking Republican in the House, was defeated in a primary by a strong foe of immigration reform, conventional wisdom proclaimed that reform was now dead for this Congress. But Murdoch was correct when he wrote in the Wall Street Journal, "That would be the wrong lesson and an undesirable national consequence of this single, local election result." In fact, sidetracking reform would have many "undesirable" results, and Murdoch stresses one of them: economic
strangulation. Himself an immigrant from Australia who is now an American citizen, the media mogul insists: "If we are serious about advancing our economic future and about creating job growth here in America, then we must 'realize it is suicidal to suggest closing our doors to the world's entrepreneurs, or worse, to continue with large-scale deportations." Adelson, a major supporter of hard-right conservatives, headlined his piece in Politico, "Let's Deal With Reality and Pass Immigration Reform." He focuses on the moral argument for legalizing undocumented newcomers and laments how sending them home would have a "devastating and heartbreaking effect on countless multigeneration families living here together."
Other Republicans stress a third "undesirable" and"suicidal" result of opposing reform: political self-destruction. The electorate is changing rapidly. It will be less than 70 percent white by 2016. And fewer than three out of 10 Hispanics and Asians voted Republican in 2012. Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina, who recently survived a primary challenge from the right, echoed Murdoch's
admonition that abandoning immigration reform would be the "wrong lesson" to draw from Cantor's defeat. "It would break my heart for my party to go down a road we need not go," he said on CBS' "Face the Nation." "Embrace rational, comprehensive immigration reform... and we're back in the ballgame. If we don't adjust on this issue, our chances of survival as a party are very bleak."
So why do so many Republicans reject this advice? Why do they refuse to face the facts outlined by Murdoch, Adelson and Graham?
There are many reasons, but one of them is a deep-seated, hard-wired suspicion of anything favored by Democrats in general and President Obama in particular.' And this suspiciousness clouds their judgment and impairs their ability to "deal with reality" - or the other party. A recent survey by the Pew Research Center documents this trend (which also afflicts Democrats,, but not quite so broadly). In 1994, 17 percent of Republicans had "very unfavorable" views of the Democrats; today that number has leaped to 43 percent. Among "consistently conservative" Republicans, two out of
three believe Democratic policies "jeopardize the nation's well-being."
Pew adds, "the most politically polarized are more actively involved in politics, amplifying the voices that are the least willing to see the parties meet each other halfway." Those "politically polarized" voices gain even greater prominence on media outlets - particularly on cable TV and talk radio - that raise their ratings and their profits by raising the tempers of their audience. A report by the Brookings Institution emphasizes the media's role, and points out that voters who "trust in Fox News as an accurate news source" are the most likely to oppose an immigration overhaul.
Cantor's successor as majority leader, Kevin McCarthy, represents a California district around Bakersfield that is one-third Hispanic. The strip mall where a young McCarthy once ran a deli now houses a Mexican grocery and a restaurant serving papusas, a Salvadoran delicacy.
Will McCarthy listen to the "suicidal" voices in his party? Or pay attention to the realities - and the voters - altering his hometown?

Boehner wants legacy of getting nothing done
peaker John Boehner is in a real pickle. His caucus is in
constant disarray. He frequently is unable to forge compromises, even within his own party. As a result, he can't make deals with the Democrats in Congress or the president of the United States. So what can he do? Speaker Boehner decided to sue the president for "doing his job."
This is yet another in an endless line of "red herrings" - the dragging of a dead fish across a trail to distract hounds from pursuing the fox - that Republicans have dragged across the path of progress. They've mastered the misleading and irrelevant. And some partisan pundits and their allies in the media too eagerly follow the false trail rather than reporting how congressional Republicans are standing in the way of what the American people want. Most leaders want a legacy of getting something done; Boehner apparently wants a legacy of getting nothing done. Some Republicans leaders in Washington are secretly pleased to paralyze our government, to bring it to a grinding halt, as we have seen them do again and again. Twice Boehner has brought the United States to the brink of default to force, not a budget compromise, but a surrender to the far right extremists in his party's base.
When Republicans officeholders sayWashington is broken, they are not complaining about it. They are bragging about it - because they broke it. If you can't win an election, the next best thing is to foot-
drag so the changes and reforms people voted for can't get passed. The list of popular items Republicans are holding up is long: closing corporate tax loopholes, putting higher education within reach of all, mandating background checks for gun sales to catch the mentally unstable, raising the minimum wage to a living wage, providing unemployment checks when there are still far more job-seekers than jobs ... all basic, common-sense measures to restore our economy. Yet they oppose all. Republicans have held up the nominations of our ambassadors, creating a backlog so serious it has interfered with the president's efforts to constrain the advance of terrorists in Iraq. Perhaps Speaker Boehner's biggest obstruction is on immigration reform - another thing he nonsensically blames President Obania for, saying his followers don't trust the president, so why do anything?
The Republican Party leadership behaves worse than hyperprivileged'teenagers on a bad day. They have an excuse for everything, and blame everyone but themselves. If Boehner brought immigration reform up for a vote, it would probably pass because enough
Republicans support it to pass it with the Democrats' help. Boehner refuses to allow a vote because he is bowing to the hard right-wing, no-compromise tea party Republicans who want our government largely abolished. Boehner's lawsuit against the president has very little chance of succeeding. So what's behind it? As outgoing Minnesota Rep. Michele Bachmann said on Fox News, "What we can do is impeach the elected official."
To bring that about, Republican' leaders engaged in extra-constitutional measures to thwart Obama from carrying out the voter's mandate.
Put aside the partisanship, read between the ideological lines, study the history of the separation of powers debate, and one is forced to conclude that Bachmann, Boehner and others, in trying to make Obama bow to their agenda, employed measures beyond the Constitution's authority to do so. Nothing was off-limits, including shutting down the government itself and willfully bringing the nation to the perilous edge of financial default. Now, this. As Rep. Mark Pocan, representing Wisconsin's 2nd Congressional District, said, "Speaker.Boehner is allowing the tea party tail to wag the dog.... Unfortunately, this Republican-controlled House of Representatives has no intentidn of actually governing and will continue to block any effort by President Obama at the expense of our constituents." And the American people will continue to pay the price.

Teens aiming for cop careers train with SWAT
The Associated Press
PEMBROKE PINES - She may not be old enough to drive a car alone, but Yarely Solize knows how to handle a gun and protect herself if she is in danger. With protective glasses covering her eyes, the petite 15-yearold wrapped her manicured fingers around a gun and pointed at her target.
With the tiniest flinch, she shot straight at the target's chest, sending the casing to the floor and causing a loud blast. A blue dot of paint splattered across the target in front of her. "You feel like you have power and control," said Yarely, one of more than 60 teenagers taking part in shooting training with the Broward Sheriffs Office Police Explorer program Tuesday at the former South Florida State Hospital in Pembroke Pines. As a little girl, Yarely dreamed of being in the FBI after watching movies and TV shows including CSI, Bones and Criminal Minds. "I knew that that was what I wanted to do when I got older," she said. "It's very exciting." rarely and dozens of other teens are getting a head start on a law enforcement career by becoming Explorers. The voluntary program offers discipline, instruction and direction through volunteer work, ride-alongs and hands-on training. On Tuesday, the group trained

with BSO SWAT members on how to handle live-shooter situations including clearing rooms, loading guns and hitting targets. They trained in the same place and used some of the same gear
- including the practice Glock guns that shoot bullets with paint inside - that the BSO's SWAT team uses.
"We tryto make it asTreal as possible," said Deputy Mike Brady, who helped the teens wrap their hands properly and showed them how to load a magazine into the gun.
The dark hallways of the old mental institution lead the officers - and the Explorers - to rooms where they can practice
entering and shooting. The walls are painted with colorful splatters left by practice shots. The teens enrolled in BSO's Explorer program are spending the week getting intensive training with different areas of law enforcement. Later in the week they'll visit a jail and a federal courthouse.
Broward has nine Explorer posts with nearly 200 teens. Deputy Darren Holewinski, a senior advisor, said the teens who go through the program have a better chance of getting hired when they are old enough. "These kids are 100 percent our future," he said. "They are the ones who will replace me and the other officers when we retire." For Darren Holewinski's daughter, Alexandra, the Explorer program has taught her a lot about herself and what she is capable of doing. When she. started four years ago, she did so because her dad wanted her to. "I was kind of pushed into it," the 18-year-old said. The then-aspiring lawyer did not envision herself a cop. But after a few months she quickly learned to love the profession. She realized she could do anything a boy could do,,and now has her sights on the FBI.
"It wasn't always easy," she said. "Boys don't always think that girls can do the same things." Now, as captain, she said it's a great feeling leading both boys and girls.
Karla lannicelli, 18, agreed, saying it was hard in the beginning to get others to understand her choice of becoming an Explorer.
"It's not something people expect girls to do," said lannicelli, now the captain of her post.
"We all have one goal, she said. "We want to help people."
State discovers that roadside wildflowers cut costs
The Associated Press
DAYTONA BEACH Florida state highway officials are finding more than just scenic beauty in the colorful wildflowers blanketing local roadsides. A recent study for the Florida Department of Transportation by a University of Florida researcher concluded green areas along roadways present a host of advantages and potential cost benefits. Based in part on that study, the department has set a goal to trim its mowing program, hoping to save more than $1.3 million a year, with an eye on further reductions depending on the program's success. Transportation Secretary Ananth Prasad has asked all the districts, including the one that covers Volusia and Flagler counties, to reduce roadside mowing programs by 10 percent and to look for areas where wildflowers are already naturally blooming and allow those roadside gardens to flourish by carefully timing roadside mowing programs.
Even though there had been a few previous attempts to promote roadside wildflowers, roadside vegetation "had never been seen by the department as a benefit," said state transportation landscape architect Jeff Caster. Roadsides were seen "as a liability rather than an asset, something the department needs to perpetually control and keep from protruding into the road," said Caster, who oversees maintenance of the green areas along roadsides statewide.
But over time, that attitude has changed and a new approach is taking shape, he said.
The recent study by George Harrison, an economist with UF's Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences, was arranged at the urging of the Florida Wildflower Foundation.
"There's value to this landscape and they mow it down," said the Foundation's executive director, Lisa Roberts. "We feel
like if we could show there was value they might see a value in keeping it." Roadsides can be "managed so that it's not aweedy mess and then we reap the benefits," said Roberts. Using formulas and estimates from studies elsewhere in the nation, Harrison concluded the 93,000 acres of state highway rights of way that are covered in plants are worth more than a half-billion dollars a year, in terms of runoff reduction, carbon storage and pollination. When the findings were presented to the department, Caster said they were fascinated. The department had never looked at the environmental benefits, he said.
The study also showed the value could increase significantly with only "modest changes" to the way. roadsides are managed, using more sustainable management practices such as reductions in mowing, Caster said. The department spends about $13 million a year on mowing along its 12,079 miles of highways, the study reported.
"For every 10 percent we reduce mowing there's a potential to save more than $1 million a year," he said. Just increasing the number of days between mowing from 30 to 33 eliminates one mowing cycle.
Caster said the department will start with the 10 percent reduction and monitor that for a couple of years to see if there are any negative impacts.
The department doesn't want the roads to be unkempt, Caster said. "It's important that the roads look well maintained."
But the switch from 30 to 33 days between mowing "probably wouldn't have a negative impact," he said.
It was also suggested the districts consider the effects of concentrating the efforts to reduce mowing in areas where wildflowers grow naturally, Caster said. "We would save money by reducing mowing and end up with more wildflowers, which everybody seems to

Wildflowers bloom in the median along north U.S. 17, north of DeLand. Florida Transportation Secretary Ananth Prasad is encouraging counties to curtail their mowing programs in areas where wildflowers are growing along roadways statewide. The department has set a goal to trim its mowing program, hoping to save $1.3 million a year.
"For every 10 perent we reduce mowing there's a potential to save more than $1 million a year."
"Every spring and every fall, Florida has this natural show of wildflowers.We get a lot of credit but nature is doing the work. It just happens to be on our land." The department has had mixed results with previous attempts at wildflower programs, struggling to get some areas to bloom in subsequent years and a lack of buy-in, he said. The department's first wildflower program - de-
ate transportation landscape architect
veloped 10 years ago- met "great resistance" internally, he said. The new policy, "written with a whole new attitude" is designed to get results.
"We are really just at the beginning of something really exciting," he said. "It's a little bit of choreography," he said. "You have to figure out the right time to mow and the frequency of mowing."

and produce seeds, so. the mowers can help distribute the wildflowers' seeds, he said. But without mowing the rest of the year, the wildflowers would be shaded out by other plants. As an incentive to help the districts get focused on the reduced mowing and wildflower production, supervising maintenance engineers were told that any money saved wouldn't be taken away but could instead be used on other things that needed
"We're trying to make money available for their highest priorities," Caster said.
With the study in hand, Roberts said the Wildflower Foundation hopes to work with counties and the department to lobby for management that will keep the roadside ecosystems more natural, she said, adding beauty and providing more habitat for bees and other important pollinators.

Former AP reporter
pens crime novel
The Associated Press
TAMPA - Following in the footsteps of fellow former Tampa Tribune crime reporters Tim Dorsey and Ace Atkins, Vickie Chachere is celebrating the release of her first crime novel. Unlike Dorsey's and Atkins's gritty tales featuring flawed, hard-boiled investigators, however, Chachere and co-author Cindy Pearlman have penned a youngadult novel, "Jex Malone," featuring a teen sleuth and her band of friends who solve crimes in the tradition of cultural icon Nancy Drew.
Like other generations of girls on the verge of becoming teens, Chachere, director of special projects for the University of South Florida's communications department in Tampa, said she voraciously consumed any Nancy Drew mystery book she could get her hands on.
"I probably was 8 or 9 when I became a Nancy Drew fan," she said of the female detective series launched in 1930. "I was intrigued with the idea that a young woman would question the world around her instead of just accepting the answers presented to her."
In the spirit of the . fictional character with a penchant for crime, Chachere went on to major in journalism at Arizona State University in Phoenix and then landed her dream job as an investigative crime reporter at The Tampa Tribune in 1989.
She subsequently was recruited to cover crime for the Associated Press' Tampa Bay bureau in 2000. Chachere recalled it was a heady time for Tampa Bay crime reporters during her stint with AP. Tampa Bay had captured the attention of the national press following a series of unrelated high-profle kidnappings and murders, including the case of 11-yearold Carlie Brucia who was kidnapped from a Sarasota car wash in 2004; 13-yearold Sarah Lunde, who was abducted from her Citrus County home and discovered choked to death in an abandoned fish pond
in Ruskin in 2005; and 9year-old Jessica Lunsford of Homosassa, who was abducted, raped and murdered in 2005. Long after Chachere left
the grim world of crime reporting to become an editorial writer for the Tribune and then chief speech writer for USF President Judy Genshaft, she says the faces of Brucia, Lunde and Lunsford's friends continued to haunt her. Just as Chachere was wondering how to give these young girls the voice they deserved, she received a call from Cindy Pearlman, a classmate from Arizona State whose friendship hasn't waned.
"We worked together on the campus newspaper every single day for two years," said Chachere. "We were inseparable." Pearlman, an entertainment writer for the Chicago Sun-Times and co-author of 13 nonfiction books, suggested she and Chachere write a young-adult novel. Chachere said it was as if Pearlman was reading her mind. "We started talking and realized we could tell the story together." Pearlman said the two agreed they wanted to pay homage to Nancy Drew by creating a modern version of the girl sleuth who would use contemporary forensic tools to solve crimes. Writingunderpen names, C.L. Gaber andVC. Stanley, it took Pearlman and Chachere nine years of writing chapters and sharing them via email to complete and publish the first book featuring the teen sleuth. The book is targeted to teens of both sexes age 13-18. "Right now there's a huge, thriving book culture among kids this age," said Chachere.
Pilots N Paws saves 4-legged lives
PENSACOLA NEWS JOURNAL
PENSACOLA - You could tell the boys had never flown before, because two minutes after we took off from Pensacola Aviation Center they had broken out of their cages and were roaming nervously through the small, cramped Piper Saratoga passenger plane. The boys are brothei~s. Two beautiful, yettoo-thin, Weimaraner dogs that had been recently abandoned in a Pensacola garage. But on Wednesday, they were heading to a new home at the Weimaraners Rescue and Adoption of Florida, a no-kill shelter in Eustis. But first they had to get a ride. That's when Eric Kline, a 50-year-old pilot and Pensacola businessman, came to the rescue. Kline is a volunteer pilot for Pilots N Paws, a national organization that delivers dogs to no-kill shelters throughout the South. The Escambia County Animal Shelter does kill unwanted and unadopted animals, while the Pensacola Humane Society, a no-kill shelter, is at capacity. So on Wednesday, Kline delivered the wide-eyed boys to Orlando, where they were met by a volunteer from the Weimaraner Rescue organization. But before touching down in Orlando, Kline made a stopover in Montgomery, Ala., where he picked up an additional eight dogs that were also going to new homes and no-kill shelters.
"Aren't dogs great?" Kline asked, after originally leading the excited Weimaraners into one of five dog crates stored aboard the six-passenger plane
- the back seats had been removed to make room for the dogs.
Heading south after takeoff, Kline heard a commotion from the back. The boys had broken the hinges of the plastic crate with metal gratings and were soon tromping all over the packed plane. They pressed wet noses to the windows, watching the ground grow smaller and smaller, and left dog snot smudges on the glass. And other places. "I got spooged!" Kline

Pilot Eric Kline, with Pilots N Paws, gets a surprise greeting from two curious male Weimaraner brothers who sneaked out of their dog crate mid-flight while traveling from Pensacola.
said through his headset, after one of the sleek gray dogs pressed a wet, runny nose against his neck while he piloted the plane toward Montgomery. A few seconds later, the same dog was trying to squeeze onto Kline's lap from the left shoulder, while the other dog tried to climb into the pilot and passenger seat from the other side. He petted them both at the same time - the plane was on autopilot
- but the dogs wanted to be a little closer to the action and tried to get in our laps.
"Dog is my co-pilot," Kline said, before one of the dogs nearly commandeered the plane. Kline needed help. "Hey, can you help me turn these dogs around?" Kline asked me. I unbuckled my seat belt and turned and wrestled the dogs off Kline, pushing them to the backseat, where they ended up resting on the tops of the scattered dog crates and computer bags packed into the back.We didn't have to worry about them doing their business. They left their business cards on the tarmac at Pensacola Aviation Center. The brothers spent most
of the hourlong flight to Montgomery staring out the window, only occasionally letting out a inquisitive bark. We arrived in Montgomery, where we removed the dogs from the plane and let them drink a little water on the tarmac, where two vehicles had been awaiting our arrival. The vehicles
were packed with the eight more dogs we would transport to Orlando - four puppies, a hound dog, a Labrador retriever, a goldendoodle and a beagle. "It's rot about me," Kline said about the rescue earlier. "There's a whole network of people who work to take care of these animals."

Cheryl Guy announces candidacy for School Board District 5
focus on making
Submitted by the candidate
Jackson County resident Dr. Cheryl Guy, who
presently' works with students,
and administrators on
Guy a daily baGuy sis, has filed to run for School Board in District 5.
"It is with highest regard of The Jackson County School District that I am running for the office of School Board Member here in District 5. Looking back over the past 21 years of my career in education, I think the best years were those spent in the classroom as a teacher at Golson Elementary and Marianna High from 1993 through2001." Dr. Guywas Golson's 1994 Rookie of
the Year and then Teacher of theYear in 1996. After receivingher M.S. in Marriage and Family Therapy, Cheryl provided individual and group therapy to students and families throughout the Decatur County School System. Her tenacity can't be denied: in 2005 Cheryl obtained. her doctorate degree in Educational Leadership. Dr. Guy still serves the Decatur County School System in Bainbridge, Georgia, where she works under Federal Programs as the District's Parent Involvement Coordinator. In that role, Dr. Guy also works closely with the Director of Curriculum, Instruction, Assessment and Professional Learning. "Education today is no longer about working in our own departments or silos. There is great value in moving across silos - engaging with others in different disciplines and departments enriches one's thinking; it enables crossdisciplinary/departmental/ organizational problem solving; it prevents duplication of work. If we
are going to find solutions, we are more likely to do it together than apart." Dr. Guy continued. Dr. Guy provides parental involvement support, information and relevant training to parents, caregivers, teachers and comniunity as they partner together to increase student achievement. "My background in education, counseling, and leadership gives me a unique skill set that will serve to address the problems and needs of our stakeholders. I have a public and personal commitment to the educational process. Intentional partnering, transparency, stakeholder engagement and accountability throughout a school system are paramount to effectively educating students. Strong schools contribute to making strong communities" Dr. Guy continued, "It would be an honor to serve as a school board member, not only in the community in which I live, but where my own child attends school. I will keep the education of our
students as the primary focus."
Dr. Guy and her husband Greg have four children and have been married 26 years. "Part of my success is having been a coach's wife for over 17 of those years" Dr. Guy said. Coach Greg Guy served on the staff of Florida State University under the legendary head coach Bobby Bowden from 1989 to 1992, and was an athletic director and head football coach here in Jackson County from 1993 to 2000. Both Dr. Guy and her husband worked for current superintendent Steve Benton.
"With the latest state statues, our school leaders and younger teachers are now, much like athletic coaches," Dr. Guy said. "Their jobs are now hinging, not only on professional performance, but their students' performance as well. Just as a student's success has always been performance based, the same is now true of our teachers. With that being said, in order for a team to be successful, athletes must be provided
Regulators accuse T-Mobile of bogus billing
The Associated Press
WASHINGTON - T-Mobile US became the target of a federal investigation and lawsuit Tuesday amid allegations that it bilked potentially hundreds of millions of dollars from its customers in fraudulent charges.
The announcement of a complaint filed in a court in Seattle by the Federal Trade Commission and an inquiry by the Federal Communications Commission is a blow to the reputation of the popular mobile phone provider, which had bden making gains in the market by offering consumers flexible phone plans.
The complaint alleges that T-Mobile billed consumers for subscriptions to premium text services such as $10-per-month horoscopes or updates on celebrity gossip that were never authorized by the account holder. The FTC alleges that T-Mobile collected as much as 40 percent of the charges, even after being alerted by other customers that the subscriptions were scams.
"It's wrong for a company like T-Mobile to profit from scams against its customers when there were clear warning signs the charges it was imposing were fraudulent," said FTC Chair Edith Ramirez in a statement.

In a statement, T-Mobile called the allegations "unfounded and without merit."

This Jan.15 file photo shows Federal Trade Commission (FTC) Chair Edith Ramirez speaking at the FTC in Washington.T-Mobile USA knowingly made hundreds of millions off its customers in bogus charges, a federal regulator alleged Tuesday in a complaint that is likely to damage the reputation of a household name in wireless communications. In its complaint filed in federal court, the Federal Trade Commission claimed that T-Mobile billed consumers for subscriptions to premium text services such as $10-per-month horoscopes that were never authorized by the account holder. The FTC alleges that T-Mobile collected as much as 40 percent of the charges, even after being alerted by other customers that the subscriptions were scams.

In June, with the FTC complaint imminent, T-Mobile announced it would reach out to customers and give them a chance to request a refund.
The practice is often re-. ferred to as "cramming": businesses stuff a customer's bill with bogus charges associated with a third party. In this case, the FTC said, most T-Mobile customers never agreed to sign-up for the services but were billed anyway. T-Mobile says it tried to put consumer protections in place, but that many of the third-party vendors acted irresponsibly. The FTC counters that T-Mobile should have been tipped off that these text services were scams be-. cause of the high rate of

Measles outbreak complicates 2 big Amish events
The Associated Press
SHILOH, Ohio - Visitors from around the world to two upcoming events in Ohio's Amish country could come away with more than they bargained for, health officials fear - a case of measles from the nation's largest outbreak in two decades. The outbreak, with more than 360 cases, started after Amish travelers to the Philippines ,contracted measles this year and returned home to rural Knox County, where it spread thanks to a lower rate of vaccination among the Amish and the difficulty public health authorities had in getting the word out to largely rural communities where phones are few and the Internet is nonexistent.
Health officials believe the outbreak is slowing in Ohio thanks to vaccination clinics and doorto-door visits by public health nurses. But Horse Progress Days, an international showcase of horse-drawn equipment scheduled for Friday and Saturday, is expected to draw more than 20,000 Amish and others from around the globe. And a large annual auction that raises money to help Amish families pay medical bills for children with birth defects is scheduled for Saturday.
Authorities are trying to spread education - and vaccination.
"Very easily someone could come for these events, be exposed to someone who didn't know that they were sick, and travel home, and start another outbreak in another community somewhere in the United States or overseas," said Dr. D.J. McFadden, health commissioner in Holmes County, site of Horse Progress Days and home to one of the country's largest Amish populations.
The county has 54 cases of measles and one hospitalization. Most of its Amish were already vaccinated before the outbreak, McFadden said.
Symptoms of measles, which is caused by a virus, include fevers, coughs, rashes and pinkeye. Before widespread vaccinations in the U.S. beginning in the 1950s, 450 to 500 people died each year, 48,000 were hospitalized and nearly a thousand people suffered brain damage or deafness. Though nearly eradicated in the United States, measles remains common in many parts

In this photo from Wednesday, a horse and buggy arrive for the health and safety clinic that included Measles, Mumps, & Rubella vaccinations for the Mennonite community of Richland County in Shiloh, Ohio. Health officials said Ohio's current Outbreak of measles consists of more than 360 cases and is the biggest in the U.S. since 1994. The outbreak started after Amish travelers to the Philippines contracted measles this year and returned home to rural Knox County, Ohio.
of Asia, the Pacific and Africa.
The Amish eschew many conveniences of modern life. Their religion does not prevent them from seeking vaccinations, but because their children don't attend traditional public schools, vaccinations are not required and therefore not routine. For Amish who aren't vaccinated, Ohio health officials say, reasons include religious objections, unwillingness to shoulder the cost because they don't have insurance, and not seeing the need for a disease that isn't common. Outreach efforts to deliver vaccinations and education have been hampered by communication
- few Amish have phones
- transportation and the strapped resources of rural counties without big health departments, said Richland County public health nurse Sue McFarren.
But when they're contacted, most Amish have cooperated, she said. Officials have distributed about 10,500 vaccines in Ohio, about half in Holmes County in central Ohio. The other affected areas are mostly, but not all, nearby - in Crawford, Ashland, Coshocton, Highland, Holmes, Richland, Stark and Wayne counties.
"They have been excellent about quarantining themselves," McFarren Said. "If they have a case, they stay home until it's run its course."
In this photo from Wednesday, Richland Public Health nurse Renee Blankenship (left) gives Christina Martin a Measles, Mumps, & Rubella (MMR) vaccination while her brother Ed Martin and mother Linda Martin (third from right) wait to get their vaccinations at a clinic in Shiloh, Ohio. The Martin's are Mennonites from Richland County.
Amish dairy farmer Daniel Weaver got a vaccination during a clinic at a pole barn .near Shiloh in northern Ohio on July 25, concerned because he travels often.
"The Amish in general are not reacting that much differently than the rest of the population," said Weaver, 48, of nearby Shreve. "It's just because of our tight proximity, it creates a different effect." Several Mennonite families visited the same clinic, arriving one after the other in horse-drawn buggies with fluorescent orange triangles affixed to the rear. These "horseand-buggy" Mennonites live a lifestyle similar to someAmish, though many have phones and other
modern conveniences. Mennonite dairy farmer Samuel Zimmerman, who got his vaccine after hearing about the outbreak, said he'd never really had an opinion about vaccines before.
"I guess when I was growing up we were hale and hardy, and we didn't think about vaccinations," said Zimmerman, 36, of Blooming Grove. Organizers of Horse Progress days said they are distributing letters to international visitors warning them of potential measles exposure. Past events have drawn nonAmish from countries including Australia, Colombia, Germany, Mexico, South Africa, Sweden and New Zealand.
Posters will provide information about measles and encourage people with symptoms to -go home, and a hospital will provide free vaccinations Friday, general coordinator DanielWengerd said. Saturday's auction for the Ohio Crippled Children's Fund is being held at the Kidron Auction House in Wayne County. An auctioneer there said he wasn't familiar with officials' concerns. The Ohio outbreak is the biggest in the U.S. since 1994. Overall, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention are tracking 529 cases in 20 states, with the next biggest outbreaks in California and New York, none of which involve the Amish.
Mom kills self, 2 daughters with nitrogen gas
The Associated Press
EAST GREENBUSH, N.Y. - A mother despondent over her son's suicide killed her two young daughters and herself early Tuesday using suffocating nitrogen gas at their home, about a week after a stay in a mental institution, authorities said.
East Greenbush Police Chief Christopher Lavin said a 911 call at about 1:45 a.m. sent police to the town house in the Albany suburb of East Greenbush, where they found the mom and girls, ages 6 and 9, unconscious from exposure to the odorless gas in a first-floor bedroom. Rescuers had to break down the door to the locked room and tried CPR for a half hour before the three were taken to Albany Medical Center, where they died.
The mother, 47-year-old AngelaMtambu, was recently released from a Pennsylvania mental in-
stitution after being overcome with grief when her 23-year-old son asphyxiated himself in the same home in April, authorities said.
"I just think she couldn't take it," the woman's brother, Bernard Pamberi, told reporters outside the home as he fought back tears.
Police said the father of the girls, Callidora and Eudora Thurston, has been notified. Angela Mtambu was a traveling nurse who was working in Houston this spring when she decided to return to the home she has owned for 12 years. A Texas relative who was concerned that the distrapght Mtambu might be planning to kill herself and her daughters notified authorities in East Greenbush, and an Amber Alert was issued June 1.
Mtambu was taken into protective custody in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, and local social 'services took custody of the two
girls, Lavin said.
Mtambu was kept nearly three weeks for psychiatric observation before being allowed to reunite with her daughters and no order of protection was issued. "She apparently did not exhibit behavior that is needed to trigger a preventative-custody arrest," Lavin said. "I can't think of anything under the law that we could have done."
Lavin said she rejoined her family last week, social services followed up with visits to check on the children's welfare, and on Sunday night she was again allowed to sleep in the same room with her daughters, Calls to social services agencies in Dauphin County, Penn-, sylvania,.and Rensselaer County were not immediately returned Tuesday.
Pamberi said Mtambu lived with him for a short time after returning and another brother came from South Africa to
"There was no sign. We spent the whole day, yesterday, with the children;" Pamberi said. "We went for dinner at Applebee's restaurant. We took them for ice cream."
Pamberi and the other uncle who were staying in the home said they awakened to the sound of hissing gas Tuesday morning but couldn't get out of their room because they had been locked in. Pamberi said he then made the emergency call. Lavin said three police officers were the first to arrive at the scene and were affected by the high level of nitrogen gas. They weren't injured.
He said more than one 30pound tank of the gas was found in the room.
Lavin said it is possible Mtambu intended to mimic the death of her son.
SAutopsies were expected to be performed on Wednesday, Lavin said.

Dream run over for USA
World Cup ends for Americans with 2-1
OT loss to Belgium
The Associated Press
SALVADOR, Brazil - They captured the eyes and hearts of a suddenly awakened soccer nation, who gathered in unprecedented numbers to watch the world's game.
But the end of the ride came at the exact same point as four years ago: with a loss in extra time in the World Cup's round of 16.
Kevin De Bruyne finally beat goalkeeper Tim Howard in the third minute of extra time, Romelu Lukaku scored 12 minutes Slater to give Belgium a two-goal lead, and the Red Devils hung on for a 2-1 victory Tuesday. "It's heartbreaking," Howard said. "I don't think we could have given it more."
Before exiting, the U.S. showed the spunk that captured America's attention. Julian Green, at 19 the youngest player on the U.S. roster, stuck out his right foot to volley in Michael Bradley's pass over the defense in the 107th minute, two minutes after entering the game.
They nearly tied it up in the 114th, when Clint Dempsey peeled off the ball and was stopped point-blank by goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois after

Marianna's Marquis Kelly goes to the basket with Sneads'Alec Rodgers (23) attempting to block in a game Monday night at Marlanna High School.
BY DUSTIN KENT
The Marianna Bulldogs and Sneads Pirates concluded their summer seasons Monday night at Marianna High School, with MHS winning twice and SHS losing twice.
Marianna opened up with a 65-50 victory over the East Gadsden Jaguars, who came back in the next game to beat the Pirates, 61-41.
The day ended with the Bulldogs taking a 48-42 win over the Pirates in a game in which both teams played several of their young players, with MHS freshman Deontre Rhynes leading all scorers with 20 points. Bulldogs coach Travis Blanton said he was happy with the way his team played, particularly against East Gadsden when the squad was at full strength.
"We played real good in the first half. We took some quick shots early on, but when we made them work on defense, we got the shots that we wanted," he said. "I thought Clifford Scott played real well; so did Jamel and Deontre. The kids didn't back down against a bigger team. They stood toe-to-toe with them. It was a good way for us to end the sunmmer, but we've still got a lot of work to do."
For the Pirates, the losses brought to end a summer that featured a coaching change and a shortened schedule that never featured the team's full roster, though new coach Rob Hubbs said
e played real good in the first half We took some quick shots early on, but when we made them work* on defense, we got the shots that we wanted"

he was happy with his players' efforts under the circumstances. "(Against East Gadsden), we had our first group in there and finally started to gel, but you could tell we haven't been in the gym a whole heck of a lot," he said. "Some simple things like passing and boxing out got us in trouble, but we came together at the end and tried to make a little run at them before they took off with the game.
"I was proud of them in the Marianna game. We had some JV guys in there and some guys that haven't gotten a lot of time on varsity, but they came out and played their good. We just tailed off a little at the end."
The Pirates played much of the summer without their top scorer from last year JeremyWert, who was busy playing AAU basketball, and other Sneads players missed time due to summer football commitments.
That made it difficult for Hubbs to get as much done as he would've liked, but

Attention, shoppers! Free agency opens in the NBA
The Associated Press
NEWYORK- Attention, shoppers! Free agency in the NBA is open, and LeBron James and Carmelo Anthony are available. Players and teams could begin negotiating just past midnight EDT on Tuesday morning, though contracts can't be signed until July 10, after next season's salary cap has been set. James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh, who joined together in Miami in 2010 and have led the Heat to two championships and four straight NBA Finals, all became free agents. Though many expect that trio
to stay with the Heat, Anthony could be persuaded to leave the New York Knicks for a team he believes gives him a' better chance to compete for a championship. Chicago, Houston and Dallas are among the teams that could try to pry the 2012-13 scoring champion away from the Knicks, who can pay him around $30 million more than any team under NBA rules. . Longtime stars Paul Pierce and Dirk Nowitzki also are free agents, along with players such as Toronto's Kyle Lowry and Indiana's Lance Stephenson, who are coming off their best seasons in the league.
It's the most anticipated free agency class since 2010, when James led a class that included Wade, Bosh, and other All-Stars such as Amare Stoudemire and Joe Johnson.
That free agency period changed the NBA. This one might mostly change the Heat.
They are in need of an upgrade after getting smashed by San Antonio in the finals, and the Big Three could help give them the means to make one if they agree to salaries that won't clog up too much of the cap.

"There's a lot to build on going forward," Klinsmann said. At some large financial firms in Manhattan, 70-inch screens were brought in for employees to watch. President Barack Obama joined about 200 staffers in an Executive Office Building auditorium to watch the second half. "I believe!" he exclaimed as he walked in at the front of the hall. "I believe!"
That sparked a chorus of the chant, and as Obama took a front-row seat, he said sheepishly: "I was worried that if I walked in and Belgium scored, I'd get in trouble."

Bulls make hard pitch to Carmelo
The Associated Press
CHICAGO - The Chicago Bulls made the hard sell for Carmelo Anthony and brought their stars along for the presentation on Tuesday.
That included Derrick Rose, no fan of recruiting. Joakim Noah and Taj Gibson were there, too, trying to convince the New York Knicks' free agent to choose the Bulls. Anthony arrived at a decked-out United Center in the afternoon with agent Leon Rose and coach Tom Thibodeau, a police SUV trailing their oversized limousine.
He walked past the Michael Jordan statue, waving to a small group of cheering fans as he went inside, where he spent
much of the afternoon before getting a look at the soon-to-open practice facility across the street.
The Bulls believe they have a strong pitch and a simple selling point: Anthony can transform a playoff team into a championship contender.
They believe uniting Anthony with Rose and Joakim Noah would put them in position to contend for their first title since Jordan and Scottie Pippen led the way to two three-peats in the 1990s. And they certainly made their feelings clear on Tuesday, turning the arena into one big welcome mat.

Nets moving on after Bucks hire Kidd as coach
The Associated Press
- Jason Kidd's jersey hung on the wall just to the right of Billy King, a reminder that the Brooklyn Nets lost more than a coach. They lost a franchise icon. No time to worry about that now. The only focus forKing is replacing him. "I think no one person
- and this is not just talking about Jason - but no one person can be bigger than a franchise or an organization, because an organization has got to stand on itself," the Nets general manager said Tuesday. "Players come, coaches come, ownerships come and go, but the brand of the Nets will stay." Kidd was hired Tuesday morning by the Milwaukee Bucks, a day after they sent two second-round picks to theNets as compensation. King and his assistants had dinner Monday night with former Memphis Grizzlies coach Lionel Hollins, and they planned to meet again Tuesday. King said he wants a coach in place "soon."
He was surprised he had to hire another one

so quickly after Kidd decided to bolt after just one season. But he repeatedly said it was just business, leaving personal feelings aside even as Kidd's departure came after a failed attempt to gain more power than King within the organization.
"Things happen and you've got to be flexible and ready to move, and move on," King said at the Nets' practice facility. "And so the timing may not have been right, the way it
happened may not have been right, but hopefully for Jason he's happy at the end of the day." Kidd led the Nets to a 4438 record and the second round of the playoffs. He replaced Larry Drew, who went 15-67, the worst record in the league, in his only season guiding the Bucks.
New Bucks co-owners Wesley Edens and Marc Lasry called Kidd "a determined leader, a toughminded competitor and
a great teammate" in a statement.
"When you list the characteristics that make a successful head coach, you would include leadership, communication and a competitive drive," Bucks general manager John Hammond said. Kidd displayed all of that during a 19-year playing career that will someday land him in the Hall of Fame. He led the Nets to their greatest NBA success, back-to-back trips to the
finals in 2002-03. He returned to the franchise last summer as coach and the Nets retired his number during the preseason. But he wanted more, seeking to be placed above King in the basketball operations department. When that was denied, the team granted him permission to speak to other teams. "I don't look at it as any personal affront to me," King said. "Whatever he felt he needed to do he did, and what ownership did, they did."
King became aware of the situation last Wednesday, a day before the draft
- a day which Kidd represented the Nets at a news conference to announce plans for a new practice facility - and just days before the start of free agency that began Tuesday. He said it won't affect the Nets, even though Kidd's
agent also represents Nets free agents Paul Pierce and Shaun Livingston. "It's a bump, it's a big bump, but it's something we've got to overcome," King said. "And as I go back to my one statement, the organization's got to be bigger than one person. "So we're not where we were like a week ago, but I think we can get back there quickly."
King said he called Pierce, Livingston and free agent Alan Anderson since free agency opened, but not backup center Andray Blatche, so perhaps he will be gone.
Kidd already is. But soon somebody else will be in. "It's unfortunate that it ended this way because I thought we had a good partnership working together, but this is what happens in this business," King said. "Things happen and we move forward."

the coach said there were some positives to take going forward.

They would love a shot at James, as would his home state Cleveland Cavaliers, the team he left in 2010. But it's unclear how seriously the four-time MVP will listen to other teams

Players such as Cleveland's Luol Deng and Washington's Trevor Ariza could be good fallback options for teams who can't get James or Afithony.

Nadal bounced by 144th-ranked Kyrgios
The Associated Press
LONDON - For the third year in a row, Rafael Nadal made an early exit from Wimbledon after a stunning loss to a player ranked 100th or lower. Nick Kyrgios, a 19-yearold wild card from Australia with a world ranking of 144, served 37 aces and used a fearless go-forbroke style - he even hit a winning between-the-legs shot - to beat the No. 1ranked Nadal 7-6 (5), 5-7, 7-6 (5), 6-3 and reach the quarterfinals on Tuesday. "I was in a bit of a zone out there," Kyrgios said. "I played some extraordinary tennis."
On a day when former champion Maria Sharapova was eliminated in the fourth round and Serena Williams could barely hit a ball and had to pull out of a doubles match with a viral illness, Krygios made the biggest splash of all. Playing in his first Wimbledon and fifth major, Kyrgios is the first player outside the top 100 to defeat a No. 1 at a Grand Slam since No. 193 Andrei 01hovskiy downed Jim Courier in the third round at Wimbledon in 1992. Kyrgios served out the match against two-time champion Nadal at love, hitting an ace on match point. He dropped his racket to the Centre Court turf and held his head in his hands in amazement. He did a little dance to celebrate.
"That's the biggest win of my career obviously, and that's something I'm never going to forget," he said. "I'm going to draw so much confidence out of that no matter where I play now."
Kyrgios is the first man to get to the quarterfinals in his Wimbledon debut in 10 years, the first teenager to defeat a No. 1 at a Grand Slam since a 19-year-old Nadal beat Federer at the 2005 French Open, and the lowest-ranked player to defeat Nadal at any Slam. For Nadal, a two-time Wimbledon champion and 14-time major winner, it marked another shocking loss at the All England Club. In 2012, he was ousted in the second round by 100th-ranked Lukas Rosol. Last year, he fell to No. 135 Steve Darcis.
"The thing is this surface, when you have an opponent who decides to serve and to hit every ball very strong, you are in trouble," Nadal said. "In the second and the third set I was better than him, but I was not able to convert opportunities. And for the rest, he played better than me." Kyrgios, who saved nine match points in a secondround win over Richard Gasquet, looked like a star in the making, showing no nerves, flashing winners from all over the court, and dictating the play. The 6-foot-4 Australian struck 70 winners, compared to 44 for Nadal. He dominated with his serve,
with a fastest delivery of 133 mph (215 kph). He hit a casual winner between his legs from the baseline in the second set.
Kyrgios will next face eighth-seeded Milos Raonic, the first Canadian man to reach the Wimbledon quarterfinals since Robert Powell in 1912. He beat No. 10 Kei Nishikori of Japan 46, 6-1, 7-6 (4) 6-3. Roger Federer kept up his bid for a record eighth Wimbledon title, beating Tommy Robredo 6-1, 6-1, 6-4 to reach the quarterfinals without the loss of a set.
Federer's win set up an all-Swiss duel with Australian Open champion Stan Wawrinka, who beat Feliciano Lopez in straight sets.
Sharapova, the 2004 champion, saved six match points before falling to Gernany's Angelique Kerber 7-6 (4), 4-6, 6-4 in a fourth-round match that lasted 2 hours, 37 minutes. Kerber will next face Canada's Eugenie Bouchard, the only woman to reach the semifinals this year at both the Australian Open and French Open. No. 23 Lucie Safarova of the Czech Republic was the first woman to reach the semifinals, beating Ekaterina Makarova 6-3 6-1. French Open runner-up Simona Halep and 2013 Wimbledon finalist Sabine Lisicki won fourth-round matches and will face each other in the quarterfinals.

Serena Williams pulls out with'bug'
The Associated Press
LONDON - It was clear something was wrong with Serena Williams from the moment she began trying to warm up for her Wimbledon doubles match 'Tuesday.
She weakly pushed volleys into the net from a couple of feet away. She whiffed on practice strokes. She even had trouble with the simple task of collecting tennis balls from the ball kids.
After Williams was examined for about 10 minutes on the sideline by medical staff, including a check of her blood pressure, the match began. After three games, though, an outof-sorts Williams and her partner, older sister Venus, stopped. The tournament referee's office and WTA later said Serena, who lost in singles Saturday, had a viral illness.
"I am heartbroken I'm not able to continue in the tournament," Serena said in a statement. "I thought I could rally this morning because I really wanted to compete, but this bug just got the best of me." About 1 1/2 hours after leaving the court, Serena walked out of the All England Club, still wearing her white match outfit, and with a tournament towel draped around her waist. She got into a car and was driven away.
"Unfortunately, Serena has been feeling unwell for the past few days and she just couldn't play to her potential today," Venus said. "I'm really proud of her for trying because we just love playing doubles together."
They have won 13 Grand Slam doubles titles as a pair, including five atWim-

bledon. In singles, the 32year-old Serena is ranked No. 1 and owns 17 major championships, the most among active women; five came at the All England Club.
"We were all looking forward to a great match. From the bottom of my heart, I thank all of the fans for their cheers and understanding," said Serena, who was beaten in three sets by 25th-seeded Alize Comet in the third round of singles. "I look forward to returning to Wimbledon next year."
While being looked at by a doctor before the start of the second-round doubles match against Kristina Barrois and Stefanie Voegele, Serena hunched over and covered her face with her hands.
During the delay, one of the Williams' other sisters, along with Serena's agent and her hitting partner, left their seats in the stands. Eventually, play began. With Serena serving in the third game, she was broken at love with four doublefaults. One of the best serv-

ers in the women's game, she hit balls that bounced before reaching the net. At love-40 in that game, chair umpire Kader Nouni took the unusual step of climbing down from his perch and walking over to speak to Serena. She then served another doublefault to fall behind 3-0. Serena and Venus walked to the sideline holding hands, and Nouni announced to the crowd at No. 1 Court: "Ladies and gentlemen, unfortunately, Miss Williams has to retire."
Serena wiped away tears as she walked toward the court's exit.
Her career has been marked by
health problems. She missed eight months after having surgery on her left knee in 2003, the year she had completed a selfstyled "Serena Slam" by winning four consecutive major titles. Days aftr winning Wimbledon in 2010, Williams cut both feet on broken glass while leaving a restaurant, leading to two operations on her right foot. Then she got clots in her lungs and needed to inject herself with a blood thinner. Those shots led to a pool of blood gathering under her stomach's skin, requiring another hospital procedure. In all, she was off the tour for about 10 months, returning in 2011.
Kvitova advances to semifinals
The Associated Press
LONDON - Former champion Petra Kvitova has defeated fellow Czech Barbora Zahlavova Strycova 6-1, 7-5 to reach the semifinals at Wimbledon.
The sixth-seeded Kvitova, who won in 2011 at the All England Club,
is the only Grand Slam champion left in the women's draw after Maria Sharapova lost to Angelique Kerber in the fourth round on Tuesday. Kvitova hit 29 winners compared to Zahlavova Strycova's 5.
Kvitova's win set up an all-Czech semifinal against Lucie Safarova.

Manziel's playbook: Hanging with Justin Bieber
The Associated Press
CLEVELAND - Johnny Manziel went from hanging out with the Browns to hanging with the Biebs. Cleveland's rookie quarterback, whose social life has overshadowed - his NFL arrival, posted photographs on Twitter of him and Justin Bieber. Manziel promised last week he wouldn't tone down his well-documented weekend living despite advice from Hall of Famers Emmitt Smith, Joe Montana and Warren Moon. The 22-year-old not only kept his word but seemed to flaunt his celebrity by posting the photos with the pop star heartthrob as well as boxing champion Floyd Mayweather and others.
Manziel is free from football for the next few weeks. The Browns open training camp July 26, when Manziel will resume his competition with Brian Hoyer for the starting job. Manziel spent last week attending the NFI's rookie symposium with Cleveland's other first-year players. On Friday, Manziel addressed the clamor caused by his social life

on an inflatable swan raft drinking champagne and seen in a video talking on a fake money phone. Manziel defended his right to party. "I'm not going to change
who I am for anybody," he said. "I'm growing up and continuing to learn from my mistakes and trying not to make the same ones over and over again, but am I going to live in a shell
or am I just going to hide from everybody and not do anything? I don't think that's the way I should liVre my life and I'm not going to do it.
"I'm here. I'm very corn-
mitted to football. I'm committed to my job, but on the weekends, I'm going to enjoy my time off." Manziel says he's tired of all the talk about how he spends his free time,
and he doesn't believe he's endangering his career or chances of beating out Hoyer.
"Everybody goes out on the weekends and enjoys their life and lives their life and just for them," he said. "They don't have people that when they walk into a place pull out their phones and all they want to do is follow me around and record everything.... Everybody goes out and has fun. Everybody goes out and does that and I'm not doing anything that's putting myself in a harmful situation. I'm not doing anything that's putting my team or jeopardizing what I do here throughout the week, or what I'm looking forward to doing this season." After attending the threeday symposium, Manziel visited the Pro Football Hall of Fame on Saturday and spent Sunday in Cleveland filming a TV commercial. But by Monday, he was back in the limelight. Browns coach Mike Pettine has said he won't speak to Manziel - or any of his other players - about their off-the-field affairs unless they get involved in criminal activities or it affects their jobs. To this point, Manziel's only offense seems to be a reluctance to avoid the spotlight.
Aaron Hernandez in Gators/Patriots 2014 calendars
The Associated Press
GAINESVILLE - ExFlorida and New England Patriots star Aaron Hernandez, jailed while awaiting trial in the killing of three men, is Mr. July in the Gators' 2014 sports calendar and is also seen in a photo carrying the pigskin in a Patriots calendar by the same company. The school said Tuesday that officials approved the publication months before he was charged with murder, and the Patriots said they would not comment on matters involving Hernandez.
The calendars are still available for sale through 'Target.com and feature tight end No. 81 in the Gators' white jersey and blue pants with an orange stripe carrying the football under his right 'arm and almost looking into the camera. It includes his height, weight and hometown of Bristol, Connecticut.
In the Patriots calendar, Hemandez is seen holding the ball in red-gloved hands and wearing a dark blue jersey, silver pants and high socks. It's hard to tell from the Target ad in which month he is featured. It has the NFL and

He later went on to star for the-Patriots, with 175 catches for nearly 2,000 yards and 18 TDs from 2010-2012. After the 2012 season, on June 26, 2013, Hernandez
was arrested in the slaying of Odin Lloyd, whose body was found in an industrial park about a halfmile from Hemandez's mansion in North Attleborough, Massachusetts. Hernandez faces a murder .trial starting Oct. 6. Others also face charges in the case..

Since then, the 24-yearold Hernandez has also been indicted on two counts of first-degree murderin the drive-byshooting of two other men, Daniel de Abreu and Safiro Furtado and faces trial next year. He has pleaded not guilty
No charges for Smith

The city attomey's office
said in a statement Tuesday that it declined to charge the 24-year-old but will require him to come to a, meeting to discuss what happened and be admonished about applicable laws. Smith was taken into custody April 13 after authorities said he became belligerent during a
random security screening and threatened that he had a bomb. The Los Angeles County district attorney's office subsequently referred the case to the city attorney's office for misdemeanor
consideration. In May, Smith pleaded no contest in San Francisco to three felony weapons charges and two misdemeanor counts of driving under the influence.

"There are thousands of Gator products in the pipeline for approval at any given time and it's not common practice to re-review them once they have alreadybeen ap 6roved.,We have since notified the licensee that it is no longer approved," he said. He added that the school just became aware of the situation on Monday. Apple says the school advised the calendar's maker that Florida no longer approves of the product, but that those already printed will not be recalled.
The calendar was first reported on Deadspin. com, and the official Florida Gators football Twitter feed responded, also saying the calendar was approved before Hemnandez's legal troubles were widely known.

Argentina beats Switzerland after extra time
The Associated Press
SAO PAULO - Angel Di Maria scored deep into extra time Tuesday to give Argentina a 1-0 win over Switzerland and a spot in the World Cup quarterfinals. With a penalty shootout looming, Lionel Messi made a surging run toward the Swiss area in the 118th minute and laid the ball off to Di Maria on the right. The winger struck a leftfoot shot past diving goalkeeper Diego Benaglio, prompting the Argentine bench to jump out on the field to celebrate the goal. Swiss substitute Blerim Dzemaili nearly equalized right before the end but his header hit the post, and the rebound bounced off his knee and wide of the goal.
The result at Sao Paulo's Itaquerao Stadium continued Argentina's record of scraping by with narrow wins at this World Cup. Di Maria said the Argentines knew from the start that there was a

good chance that the game would go into extra time, like three of the six previous second-round matches. "We know that this could happen to us, but we gave our souls out there on the pitch, we fought with our lives for each ball and we ended up as the winners," Di Maria said.
It was a dramatic ending to what had been a tight match, with Argentina struggling to breakthrough Switzerland's disciplined defense.
Granit Xhaka and Josip Drmic had clear chances to put Switzerland ahead in the first half, but after that the Swiss mostly focused
on repelling Argentina's attacks and closing down space for Messi. "We made life verytough on them," Switzerland coach Ottmar Hitzfeld said. "They managed to keep their cool. It shows Argentina has a good team," Hitzfeld, whose brother died at age 81 on the eve
of the match, said that the match was his last as a football coach. "It was a great honor working for Switzerland. I'm therefore proud to say goodbye to Switzerland with heart full of emotions," Hitzfeld said. Though Argentina dominated possession from the start, it was Switzerland that had the best chances in the slow-paced first half. Xherdan Shaqiri cut in from the left in the 28th and found Granit Xhaka in the middle of the penalty area, but Sergio Romero stoppedXhaka's shot with his left foot. Alone with Romero, striker Josip Drmic wasted a chance to score 10 minutes later with a botched attempt to chip over the Argentina goalkeeper. Argentina's attack improved after the break when fullback Marcos Rojo launched raids down the left flank, feeding crosses to the Argentine attackers. Just after the half-hour mark Gonzalo Higuian finally got an attempt on tar-
get as he connected with Rojo's cross, forcing Benaglio to a fingertip save. In the 78th, Messi tested Benaglio again as he dribbled into the area and struck a low shot that the Swiss goalkeeper stopped at his right post. Benaglio kept Switzerland in the game when got a hand on Di Maria's shot in 109th pninute, but had no chance on Argentina's winner.
Second-half substitute Rodrigo Palacio won the ball in midfield and fed Messi, who dribbled down the middle in trademark fashion, escaping a challenge from Swiss defender Fabian Schaer before poking the ball to Di Maria. Unmarked, the Real Madrid player beat Benaglio with his 110th goal in Argentina's colors. "It was a match that we deserved to win," said Sabella, the Argentina coach. "The first half was very even. They had two clear chances and after that the match was ours."

From Page 1B
Howard, playing the finest game of his career, stopped a dozen shots with his legs and arms to keep the Americans even through regulation and force an additional 30 minutes. He wound up with 16 saves.
In its first World Cup under Jurgen Klinsmann, the U.S. had promised to play attacking soccer. But once again the Americans had trouble maintaining possession and for much of the night it seemed as if the field were tilted. Howard, at 35 one of the American veterans, kept saving his team. But when Matt Besler lost his balance on an attack down the right, Lukaku sped in alone and crossed in front of the goal. The ball rebounded off defender Omar Gonzalez, and De Bruyne controlled it, spun and beat Howard just over
Groin tear likely ends de Jong's World Cup
The Associated Press
RIO DE JANEIRO Netherlands midfielder Nigel de Jong's World Cup appears to be over after tests confirmed he has a tear in his groin muscle and will be sidelined for 2to-4 weeks.
The Dutch football association said Ttesday that an MRI scan revealed the injury, almost certainly ruling one of the Dutch team's top performers out of the tournament. The 29-year-old AC Milan midfielder limped off the field in the ninth minute of the Netherlands' 2-1 comeback win over Mexico on Sunday in the second round. After the match, Netherlands coach Louis van Gaal said the injury looked serious and that De Jong's absence would be a "blood-letting" for the team.
In his first reaction, De Jong tweeted: "Devastated with the news about my injury. Sadly enough this is part of the sport aswell.Will work hard on my recovery now and keep hope." De Jong had been in outstanding form in Brazil, dominating the midfield with tough, well-timed tackles and helping create a platform for the front pair of Robin van Persie and Arjen Robben. The tournament in Brazil was something of a rehabilitation of the reputation of a player remembered by most for his crunching, chest-high tackle on Xabi Alonso in the World Cup final four years ago, an incident that earned him a yellow card.
The former Manchester City, Hamburg and Ajax player also was dropped from the Dutch team later in 2010 after a tackle in the Premier League left Newcastle winger Hatem Ben Arfa with a broken leg. But he has an unblemished disciplinary record in Brazil and Van Gaal singled him out for praise
- something the coach rarely does to any of his players - after the gritty 3-2 win over Australia in the group stage. The Dutch football association said De Jong will stay with the team in Brazil as he works on his recovery.
De Jong's injury is the latest blow to the Dutch midfield. Last week, Leroy Fer strained a hamstring in training a day after scoring
the crucial opening goal a minute after coming on as a substitute inthe 2-0 victory over Chile. Fer missed the Mexico match in Fortaleza and is in doubt for the quarterfinal match on Saturday against Costa Rica in Salvador. Before the tournament even started, injury robbed Van Gaal of two key midfielders - AS Roma workhorse Kevin Strootman and veteran creative midfielder Rafael van derVaart. Now Van Gaal is running short on options. On Sunday, he moved Daley Blind out of defense to plug the gap left by De Jong. The coach also has Feyenoord midfielder Jordie Clasie in his 23-man squad. Clasie is a tough tackler, but does not have De Jong's imposing pres-

ence and nowhere near his experience. De Jong played in his 75th international on Sunday, while Clasie, who has not yet played in Brazil, has made only eight appearances since making his debut in 2012.

his right foot. Then with the U.S. pushing .for an equalizer, De Bruyne burst ahead and fed Lukaku. He slotted the ball past Howard, his Everton teammate, seeming to put the Red Devils out of reach.
But Green, among five German-Americans on the U.S. roster and a surprise pick, woke up the team and its fans with his first
touch of the game, setting off raucous chants of"U-SA! U-S-A!" But there would be no final comeback this time.
"You get to this point and these games are always about a play here and play there," Bradley said. Chris Wondolowski had a chance to win it in stoppage time when Jermaine Jones flicked the ball to him at the top of the 6yard box, but with Courtois coming out Wondolowski put the ball over the crossbar.
"The dream falls short, but this is an incredible group," Howard said, "and we'll never forget this night."

CANCER (June 21-July 22) - By starting now, you will reap the rewards sooner rather than later. it's stagnation you should be running from. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -A past partner will find his or her way back into your life. Now is the time to follow that shared dream.

Dear Annie: Two years ago, our youngest daughter married a wonderful young man. We adore this guy, and he is a loving and caring husband. The problem is his parents. Neither his family nor ours is wealthy, and from the early stages of wedding planning, we worked to stay within a budget.
Our family is small, and his is large, which put the dinner over budget. We all met prior to the wedding, and the groom's parents assured us they would pay for the additional guests from their side of the family. At the end of the evening, my husband paid the catering bill. The next day, the groom's father thanked us for all of the planning and effort that went into making the day so special and added that he would be sending us a check. That was two years ago, and we have yet to receive a dime. Our new son-in-law
asked his father several times whether he had settled up with us, and he said he absolutely would, but it hasn't happened. Should I send them a note asking them to pay, even after all this time? I'm afraid that when future grandchildren come, it will be tense and unpleasant to be around each other because of this unpaid bill.
- SAD MOTHER-IN-LAW
Dear Sad: We're going to give the in-laws the benefit of the doubt and assume they forgot. Even with the best of intentions and a few reminders, people can let things slip out of their heads. We suggest you send a note to the other parents (both of them), saying that you were going through your checkbook and noticed that this account was still unsettled. Ask when would be convenient for you to come by and pick up the check.
Most bridge deals are a battle. One side is trying to execute a plan, while the other side is trying either to do the same or to thwart the opposition's scheme. In this deal, South was in three notrump. What was the East-West strategy and how did South counter it? As a secondary issue, what do you think of the auction?
This deal occurred after the organized part of one of my "bridge camps without tents" (details on my web site). Four of my students were just shuffling, dealing and playing.
In the auction, I think North ought to have used Stayman to try to find a 4-4 spade fit. Here, that would have resulted in a contract of four spades. With the trumps 3-2 and the heart ace onside, this would have made easily, South losing one spade, one heart and one diamond. In three no-trump, declarer started with only six top tricks: two spades, one heart (given the lead) and three clubs. He planned to play on diamonds to establish the extra tricks he needed, but that was going to give the lead back to the defenders.
East and West were hoping to establish and run the heart suit. To that end, West led the heart queen and East signaled encouragingly with her six. South correctly did not win the first
trick. He had to cut the communications between the defenders. West continued with another heart. East won with her ace and returned the suit, but South won and played a diamond, hoping that either East would take the trick or that the hearts were splitting 4-4. As you can see, declarer was home with an overtrick.
