Fire and Iron to ride for Camp Amigo

Effort in honor of six children traumatized by Marianna fire

BY DEBORAH BUCKHALTER Firefighter Michael "Sunru

President of the local Fire and Iron motorcycle club Michael Blum stopped by the Floridan Wednesday to talk about an upcoming charity ride.

On Saturday, the local chapter of a motorcycle club made up mostly of firefighters and other emergency workers have organized a charity ride to help Camp Amigd, a burn camp at Cape San Bias on the Gulf Coast. Riders from the areas in and around Marianna, Chipley, Callaway, and Dothan, Alabama, will participate.


ner" Blum is president of the local Fire and Iron MC, Station 202. He said the ride is extra special to- the Jackson County members. They put it together in honor of the fact that Camp Amigo has agreed to host the six children who suffered emotional tratuma when they lost four of their significant female role models in a NewYears Day fire at their home in Marianna this year.'

The oldest victim who died in the fire is Ruth Elise Pete, who was in her 90s. She was motherin-law to the head-of-household, 68-year-old Gertrude Pete, who al6 perished in the fire. Gertrude Pete's mother, 85-year-old Sarah Johnson, and Gertrude Pete's daughter, 46-year-old Cynthia Pete, were the other two victims. All but one of the children going to the camp lived in that household , and the sixth was very close to them as well. The wood frame home that Gertrude Pete had rented had always been filled to overflowing with people while she lived there. She had taken in her elders as well as

many grandchildren and other youngsters, along with young adult relatives throughout her life, several family members have said.
After the fire, surviving family members and the community marshaled forces to secure housing for the children displaced by the fire and ,to put clothes on their backs. The fire happened just before their Christmas break from school was to end. When school started back on Jan. 7, they would have started back with empty wardrobes without the assist.

To raise money for the kits used this week, she held fundraisers, sold painted flower pots and even homemade banana bread.

'Power Lunch'

set for July 18

Gulf Power executive to speak


His s cheduled keynote address e lier this year at the group's annual banquet was washed out by torrential rains, but Stan Connally is ready to make good on his ,promised appearance before the Jackson County Chamber

NextFriday, the Gulf Power Company president and CEO .will be joined by fellow Florida Chamber of Commerce leader David Christian for a "Power Lunch" hosted by the Jackson County Chamber. Nor- Connally mally there, aren't two speakers at this type of event, but Chamber CEO Jeff Massey says with their Florida Chamber connection, the pair made sense as a double bill.
The luncheon is taking the place ofthe Chamber's July "First Friday." That regular breakfast-and-networking event was skipped this month by Massey design, according to Massey in order to accommodate both Florida Chamber leaders - Connally is on the board of that organization and Christian serves as the vice president of Government Affairs.
From 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Friday, July 18, Chamber members are invited to Rivertown Community Church in Marianna, for a meal catered by Beef 'O'Brady's and words from two speakers with a unique perspective on the Florida business climate.
Christian will present a rundown on the last legislative session in Tallahassee, while Connally will update the group on economic developments in the region, as well as outline what he sees as possible for Jackson County's business future. A And the event isn't just for Chamber members.
Anyone interested in the North Florida economy is welcome. Massey asks those planning to attend to R.S.VP. Call 482-8060 and speak to Tanya NiemetzLein or email her at "'Anyone who wants to see the Florida Panhandle grow is going to be there to hear Mr. Connally,' Massey sailI.
"It will be a good message for business in this area."

Some in GOP worried over Scott's missteps

TheAssociated Press

TALLAHASSEE - Republican Gov. Rick Scott is a multimillionaire and flies in a private jet, yet his campaign decided to criticize Democratic challenger Charlie Crist as an elitist for wearing a Rolex Watch.
Democrats pointed out the hypocrisy, and the ensuing media coverage reminded voters that Scott's net worth dwarfs Crist's. Several more of Scott's attacks backfired, and the campaign made other gaffes, including alienating one of its biggest donors.
Polls show the two candidates are roughly tied ahead of November's general election. But the missteps have been noticed by the people Scott will need in a tight re-election: the activists and the donors who help propel a campaign.
"There's a lot of curious things going on," said Tony DiMatteo, former chairman of the Pinellas County Republican Party.
Scott filled his campaign team and top state party posts with non-Floridians brought in to help his reelection. Some wonder if the lack of institutional knowledge of the state has hurt their media strategy. . "Their people have never reached out to the local people. They're isolated,"

DiMatteo said. "They "Every campaign makes have their own way of do- mistakes," Blair said,

Florida political science

But he said the missteps aren't likely to affect an election he predicted as a tossup.
Scott declined recently to directly answer questions about his campaign, saying instead that all he worries about each day is "jobs, jobs, jobs." Scott first turned to outof-state operatives when. he organized his 2010 gubernatorial campaign as a political neophyte, since much of the GOP establishment had .lined up behind his primary opponent, then-Attorney General Bill McCollum. Scott, using his own money, quickly started running television ads that went aggressively after McCollum and eventual Democratic rival Alex Sink, while stressing his own plan to jump-start the economy.
Brian Burgess, who was Scott's communications director, said many who worked with Scott in that campaign had started with him when he organized Conservatives for Patients'Rights to oppose Obama's health care overhaul.
"There was a strong sense of loyalty and teamwork," said Burgess, who's not involved in Scott's current campaign.
"Rick Scott was new to politics, so he was willing to take direction from

the experts on our team and we could define him to the public any way we wanted."
This time around, Scott is no longer the outsider. While he is relying on one of the firms he used four years ago, the makeup and duties of his team have changed. There are also signs that Scott has asserted more direct control over this campaign. "This is Gov. Scott's campaign," said Blair when asked about the governor's role in campaign strategy. Some longtime operatives, however, questioned how closely anyone other than political insiders is paying attention at this point.
"I'm not sure the mistakes are any less on one side or the other or any more egregious on one side or the other. It's just that it appears that the Democrats are enjoying greater success in characterizing the mistakes of the Scott campaign," said Mac Stipanovich, a lobbyist who previously worked on former Gov. Jeb Bush's campaign team.

State Briefs

Crist says state
should review
gun laws
CORAL GABLES Democratic gubernatorial hopeful Charlie Crist says Florida should review two
controversial gun laws that he supported when
the state's
Republican Crist governor.
Crist said
state lawmakers should reconsider the "stand your ground" law which allows someone to use deadly force if they believe their life is in jeopardy. He also said the Legislature should reconsider the "10-20life" rule after hearing the circumstances of a

case in which a man was sentenced to 80 years in prison for firing a gun into the air.
Crist spoke at the annual convention of the Florida Press Association and the Florida Society of Newspaper Editors on Thursday. The former Republican governor, has been working to burnish his Democratic credentials as he faces a primary challenge from former state Sen. Nan Rich, a liberal firebrand who has struggled to raise the kind of money typically necessary to run a statewide race.

warden of a Soith Florida prison where an inmate was left in a scalding shower until he died in 2012 has been suspended. Department of Corrections Secretary Michael Crews saidWednesday that Jerry Comriings will be on paid administrative leave until the investigation concludes. He added that more sanctions could be forthcoming. Crews made the announcement after a visit to Dade Correctional

Institution, where Darren Rainey, a mentally ill prisoner, was punished with a shower so hot that his skin separated from his body.
Commings' suspension is the first disciplinary action taken in this case by the DOC and comes after news reports found that Rainey's death was never properly investigated. Civil rights groups have called for a federal investigation into the death.

Churches struggle to reach young Americans

en leaders of
traditional faith
groups think about reaching out to Millennials, religious seekers, unaffiliated "Nones" and other postmodern young Americans, this is the voice that many keep hearing in their heads. "Morality is how I feel too, because in my heart, I could feel it," said one person interviewed in the National Study of Youth and Religion. "You could feel what's right and wrong in your heart as well as your mind. Most of the time, I always felt, I feel it in my heart and it makes it easier for me to morally decide what's right and wrong. Because if I feel about doing something, I'm going to feel it in my heart, and if it feels good, I'm going to do it." Seconds later, young people caught up in what experts now call "emerging adulthood" may stress that

On Religion

they are open to attending multigenerational congregations that offer roots, tradition and mentors. But how will they know when they have found the right spiritual home? Right. When they feel it. That's a hard target to hit, said Naomi Schaefer Riley, author of "Got Religion? How Churches, Mosques and Synagogues Can Bring Young People Back." Many religious leaders are struggling to find a "sweet spot between deep religious messages that sound cool" and faith that "seems like it comes. from a sappy self-help

book," she noted. In light of current trends, it's also hard for clergy to take comfort in the trend seen in previous generations, which is that young people who abandon the pews usually return when they are married and have children. Trouble is, increasing numbers of Americans between 20 and 40 are delaying marriage, family and any community ties that bind. Some are opting out of marriage altogether. This creates strong moral tensions. "This is the metaphor you keep hearing," said Riley, in a telephone interview. For an increasing number of young adults, "religion is like a jacket. You have to take it off whenever you are doing, something that you know violates the teachings of your church. "So you throw that jacket in the corner.....

Then you drift further and further away until there is some part of you that just doesn't fit anymore. In your head, you're saying, 'I haven't been behaving the way that I should, so I shouldn't go to church, or to Shabbat, or to the mosque.' Then you say that week after week.... You lose your religious habits."
Rather than offering fake fixes, Riley said the goal of her book was to show examples of Catholic, Jewish, Protestant, Mormon and Muslim attempts to address these issues. The result is a guided tour through crucial paradoxes in the lives of many young Americans, especially the Millennials born between 1981 and 1996. For example:
a Many young adults
say that they don't want to be seen as mere "religious consumers," yet it's clear they are seeking congrega-

tions with worship, music, sermons and special events that click for them.
n Young people are tired of being pursued through a barrage of social media, yet these online connections are obviously at the , heart of the networks that shape their lives. Religious leaders must be careful when crossing digital lines.
)) On the marriage issue, .young Americans are not seeking congregations that feel like holy singles clubs. Nevertheless, they do want to see lots of young people in the pews around them
- members of their own urban tribes - to help them feel at home.
B Many young people
say they are seeking a faith with beauty, depth and history, yet probably not one with firm doctrines
- especially on sexuality
- that make them feel uncomfortable or judged.
During this "emerging adulthood" stage, stressed

Riley, most young people are living in a state of flux, moving to new places, making new friends, adjusting to new jobs, living with new roommates, dating new people and trying to accept new financial responsibilities. Meanwhile, religious leaders are asking them to make commitments and to keep them.
"Religious leaders are really caught in a bind here," she said. "You want these young people to step forward and maybe even to become leaders." At the same ime, she added, it's crucial that "the church or the temple or the mosque doesn't become like almost everything else in their lives - something else that's just temporary." Terry Mattingly is the director of the Washington Journalism Center at, the Council for Christian Colleges and Universities and'leads the project to study religion
and the news.

Ex-officer sentenced to 18 months in ATV crash

The Associated Press

MIAMI - A former Miami Beach police officer was sentenced Thursday to 18 months in prison after striking and seriously injuring two people while joy-riding with a woman on the beach using a police all-terrain vehicle. The judge said Derick Kuilan's. actions showed wanton disregard for other's safety. Kuilan was convicted last month of reckless driving with serious bodily injury but acquitted of driving under the influence.
Miami-Dade Circuit Judge Marisa Tinkler Mendez said the defense's request to sentence under the minimum standard of 90 days was too lenient and that her sentence would still take into account evidence that Kuilan was drinldking and driving, even though the jury did not find him guilty of that charge.
Trial evidence showed that Kuilan, while on duty and in uniform, had a blood-alcohol level above Florida's 0.08 legal limit to drive when he took a woman at a South Beach nightclub bachelorette party out on the high-speed beach ATVride.
But the defense also showed there was a second blood test that put Kulian's alcohol level below the limit, some five hours after the crash.
"We actually as a society punish individuals more if they bring harm to a police officer while on duty, so shouldn't the opposite hold true, particularly when someone is held to that higher standard? Because
-nobody is above the law," said Mendez.
Kuilan, who did not testify during the trial, expressed deep remorse during sentencing, saying he thinks of the victims daily.
"There's mistakes, that were made, poor judgment.

I agree, but I'm not a criminal," said Kuilan, a father of two young children. Some ofthe women at the bachelorette party testified they initially thought Kuilan and his then-partner may have been part of the club's entertainment, perhaps even male strippers. Theygot the officers to pose for a party cellphone photo that was published around the world after Kuilan was charged by prosecutors. Victims Kitzie Nicanor and Luis Almonte testified during the trial that they had gone to the ocean's edge to watch the sunrise when the ATV slammed into them. Almonte suffered a shattered leg and Nicanor had numerous injuries, including a brain injury she said has left her unable to work. Her spleen was removed, leaving a large scar.
"He was a sworn officer, sworn to protect, not to harm," Nicanor said in a statement read by her attorney.
She said she lives in constant pain, is isolated from friends and family, struggles to care for her child and is traumatized by small thing like taking her son to the park.
"I feel like a 13-year-old in a 32-year-old body," she said in the statement. Kuilan's pastor, fellow officers, friends aid wife asked the judge for leniency in her sentencing, noting the former officer has turned his life around since the accident, working with the church to help others. The judge also suspended Kuilan's driver's license for three years after his release from custody and ordered him to pay hundreds of thousands of dollars in restitution to the victims, starting with at least $100 per month per victim, who are also suing him in civil court.
His attorney said they have not decided whether they will appeal.

Judge Lewis rules Florida Legislature broke law on maps

The Associated Press

TALLAHASSEE - The Florida Legislature illegally drew the state's congressional districts to primarily benefit the Republican Party, a judge ruled Thursday as he ordered them redrawn. Florida Circuit Judge Terry Lewis found that the state's Republicancontrolled Legislature broke the law when it drew up political maps in 2012.
He rejected arguments from top legislative leaders that they had done nothing wrong. The ruling is not expected to disrupt this year's elections because the Legislature is expected to appeal the decision to the state Supreme Court. ' But ultimately the changes could affect the political careers of Florida's congressional delegation.
A spokesman for House Speaker Will Weatherford said Thursday night that the House was reviewing the decision.

Voters in 2010 overwhelmingly approved a constitutional amendment that said legislators could no longer draw up districts to favor incumbents or a political party, a practice known as "gerrymandering." A coalition of groups, including the League of Women Voters, sued and contended that legislators used a "shadow" process to conceal the role of GOP consultants who helped craft the final maps adopted two years ago.
Lewis ruled that two districts violated the new standards: a sprawling district held by U.S. Rep. Corinne Brown that runs from Jacksonville to Orlando and a central Florida district held by U.S. Rep. Dan Webster. Brown is a Democrat, whileWebster is a Republican. In his ruling Lewis stated that evidence presented during a nearly two-week trial showed that outside GOP political consultants engaged in a "conspiracy to influ-

ence and manipulate the Legislature into a violation of its constitutional duty."
The evidence included testimony that a top. House aide shared maps with a Republican consultant before they were made public. Another map, which resembled one put together by a consultant, was submitted in the name of a college student who said under oath hfie had nothing to do with it. The groups also questioned why legislators and legislative staff deleted emails even though they knew a lawsuit was likely.
House Speaker Will Weathefford and Senate President Don Gaetz testified during the trial that outside GOP consultants were told early on that they would have no role in the process. They both denied that the Legislature deliberately drew up maps to favor Republicans. Attorneys for the Legislature repeatedly pointed

Even though there are more registered Democrats in the state, Republicans currently hold a 17-to-10 majority in Florida's congressional delegation.
President Barack Obama also won the state in the last two presidential elections, although Republicans have won the last four gubernatorial races.

The Associated Press

The motorcycle run isn't needed to pay for their stay, Blum said; the camp is taking the children at no charge. Instead, the money will go to help the camp meet its expenses at large, such as staffing, supplies and other costs. The bikers will start riding Saturday in groups at four different Wal-Mart centers in the region, staggering their starts so that

they can converge at various points along the way. SEach rider will donate $20 to the cause, and they'll also be taking donations from .the public for about an hour before they depart their four starting points.

"We hope this is something that could help them keep doing the work." Blum said the Marianna Fire Department has, already raised about $1,000 with a mega-cooler drawing to kick the money drive off, and that another $1,000 was raised by the club itself at a Poker Run at the Thunder Beach Rally this spring in Panama City. He said he'd like to see the grand total for Camp Amigo tick toward $10,000.

Florida executes man for 1994 rape, murder of girl

The Associated Press

STARKE - Florida prison officials on Thursday executed a man convicted of the 1994 rape and slaying -of an 11-year-old girl. It was the state's sixth execution this year. Eddie Wayne Davis was executed at Florida State Prison by injection at 6:43 p.m. Davis, 45, was convicted in 1995 of first-degree murder, kidnapping and sexual battery in the slaying of Kimberly Waters, the daughter of a woman Davis had dated briefly. Davis broke into his ex-girl-

friend's trailer in the central Florida community of Lakeland
seeking beer money, according to court documents.
Prosecutors say
he found Waters sleeping, and that he woke the girl Davis and raped her.
After the rape, Davis took Waters to a nearby Moose Lodge, where he beat her and suffocated her with a piece of plastic before dumping her body in a trash can. Davis' execution was the second in Florida since the lethal

injection process came under fresh scrutiny in April when Oklahoma prison officials stopped the execution of Clayton Lockett. They halted it after noticing the deadly drug mixture was not being administered into his vein properly.
Lockett died minutes later of a heart attack.
Florida uses a three-drug mixture to execute prisoners: midazolam hydrochloride, vecuronium bromide and potassium chloride.
The drugs are administered intravenously, and are intended to first induce unconsciousness,

then paralysis and finally cardiac arrest. Midazolam, a sedative used commonly in surgery, has been part of the three-drug mixture since 2013. Sodium thiopental was used.before that, but its U.S. manufacturer stopped making it and Europe banned its manufacturers fron exporting it for executions.
Davis made a last-ditch appeal to have his execution delayed, arguing to the U.S. Supreme Court that he had a health condition that made injection of the drugs incredibly painful, which violated the Eight Amendment's prohibition of

cruel and unusual punishment. But the court rejected the argument, and allowed the execution to proceed.
Waters' mother-Beverly Schultz died in a motorcycle crash in 2004, but the victim's grandmother and two other relatives were expected to be on hand to witness Davis' execution. Mary Hobbs, the grandmother, said before the execution that she felt it important to be there to represent her daughter and granddaughter.
"My daughter never lived to see this happen and that just breaks my heart."

Texas gunman demanded to know ex-wife's whereabouts

The Associated Press

SPRING, Texas - A man charged with killing four children and their parents forced his way into the family's suburban Houston home, tied them up and shot them in the back of the head when they refused to tell him where his ex-wife was, authorities said Thursday. The lone survivor of the attack, the/ slain couple's 15-year-old daughter, suffered a fractured skull when a bullet grazed her head. She played dead and called 911 after Ronald Lee Haskell left the house, prosecutors revealed at a court hearing. A day after the slayings, investigators slowly built a picture of Haskell, who was the couple's estranged brother-in-law. The 33-year-old man is accused of killing his exwife's sister, Katie Stay, and her husband and the children, ranging in age from 4 to 14, after binding them and putting the family face-down on the floor of their home. Haskell had a handful of previous run-ins with law enforcement in Utah, where he had lived with his wife. Neighbors said- Haskell's marriage was so rocky that Stay went to Utah last fall to help her sister escape the relationship and start a new life in Texas.
Stay "was very instrumental in helping her sister get here so she could have a fresh start. Katie's a spitfire. She has energy to stand up for what she believes is right and true," said Verena Beckstrand, a neighbor who choked back tears as she talked about the family.
I Haskell had previously been jailed in 2008 in Logan, about 80 miles north of SaltLake City, on charges of assault and domestic violence. His wife told police he dragged her by her hair and struck her in the head in front of their children.
Those charges were later dismissed as part of a plea deal,. according to information released Thursday by Logan authorities.
Haskell was also served last year with a protective order from his ex-wife. It was dismissed in October after the couple filed for divorce, online court records show.
By Thursday morning, a small memorial with three.candles and a plant had been set up at the front door of the family's two-story white-brick and brown . wood-trimmed home. A couple with a child left a framed photo of the family with the inscription "Faith, Hope, Love."
"I don't think any of us will ever be able to seethat house the same again," said Viri Palacios, who lives across the street. "I just want the word to get out they were a really, really goodfamily." The father, Stephen Stay, was a real estate broker. The mother was a helpful presence around the neighborhood, .planning Halloween and Christmas parties for children, Palacios said. A few blocks from the

home at Lemm Elementary School, Principal Kathy Brown tied multi-colored ribbons around trees in front of the building and encouraged parents to do the same.
"It's to have positive bright thoughts about the family," Brown said, noting that two of the slain children had attended school there and a third had graduated from Lemm.' Documents from Thursday's preliminary court hearing show that. the daughter who survived attempted to close the door after telling Haskell her parents were not home. But he kicked it in. The teen remained in critical condition in a Houston hospital. In a statement, issued Thursday through the Harris County Sheriff's Office, Katie Stay's father, Roger Lyon, said his 15-year-old granddaughter "is expected to make a full recovery." When the badly wounded daughter contacted authorities, she told them the

Ai -s

gunman was planning to shoot other relatives, Hickman said. Police located Haskell's car, and took him into custody after a threehour standoff. "We are grateful for this miracle," Lyon said in his statement. "We are in awe of her bravery and courage in calling 911, an act that is likely to have saved all of our lives. She is our hero." Haskell was wearing a FedEx shirt at the time of the attack, but authorities seemed uncertain whether it was a deliberate attempt to deceive.
Harris County Constable Ron Hickman initiallysaid Haskell showed up at the Stay home "in the guise of a FedEx driver."
But he-and other officials later declined to say whether Haskell used the uniform to gain access to the home. Hickman said investigators were not sure Whether the suspect would have needed a disguise to get in the house, or if the children knew him.

Fireworks reports checked in deadly apartment fire

The Associated Press

LOWELL, Mass. - A fire ravaged a three-story apartment building before dawn Thursday, killing four adults and three children, forcing tenants to jump or hand their children to safety, and leading to dramatic rescues from upper floors. Authorities are looking into witness reports that the sound of exploding fireworks preceded the blaze, as well as a man's claim that a brother who died in the fire kept fireworks in his apartment.
The victims in this former mill city about 25 miles northwest of Boston were all found in units on the top floor of the building, which was just down the street from a fire station. Nine people were hospitalized with injuries not considered life-threatening. Authorities say 48 people lived in the building, which had a liquor store on the ground floor and apartments on the upper floors. The roof entirelyburned away, with the outer walls charred and the siding melted. Firefighters had to evacuate at one point as the roof gave way. Sar Soth, 43, escaped from a thirdfloor apartment along with her two stepchildren and two adults by climbing through a window and down a firefighters' ladder. She was having trouble sleeping when she heard a boom, saw

fire outside and started screaming for the others to wake.
Her stepdaughter, Soriha Proeung, 11, said she yelled for firefighters to bring the ladder to their window. "We all felt like in five minutes we were going to die," Proeung said. "I couldn't see. My eyes, my chest burned. ... I just wanted to get saved." Authorities have not identified the victims. But Thearan Sak said his brother, Tom Sak, and his brother's longtime girlfriend, Ellen Vuong, died, along with three of their five children: a 7-year-old girl, a 9-year-old boy and a 12-year-old boy. The couple had two other sons who escaped the fire, he said. Sak said his mother called him and told him his brother's building was on fire., "I went to the scene hoping that everybody made it out, but when I pulled up ... I only saw two of my nephews," he said. His brother, he said, enjoyed fireworks and had some stored in his apartment. Neighbor Sarin Chun said she awoke to screams and saw someone hand a child out a window to another person on the street. Witnesses said tenants jumped out of windows.
A police officer on routine patrol was the first to report the fire, while several tenants ran about 100 yards down the street to a fire station, Fire Chief Edward Pitta said. But the building was fully involved by the time firefighters arrived.

Opportunity knocks

Marianna tries

to make most of

tourney appearance


The Marianna All-Stars weren't supposed to be going to Dixie Youth AAA State Tournament this weekend in Desoto, but now that they are, their coach says they're going to make the most of an expected opportunity. Marianna finished third in last month's district tournament behind runner-up Sneads and champion Blountstown, with the latter deciding not to make the trip to state and allow Marianna to go in its place. That means Marianna gets to return to the state tournament' after going 2-2 last year in Lakeland, with Sebring the first opponent of Saturday's opening round.
"We're thankfulforthe opportu-, nity to go down there. I know for some of the kids it will be the first time for them to go down there, so it will be a great experience for them," Marianna coach Shane Monk said. "It's a great chance for the kids to go down there and have a good time and get the experience of playing at state."

The Sneadt and Graceville All-Stars will open play in the AAA "B" Division State Tournament on Saturday, with Sneads taking on Shalimar at 11:30 a.m. Central Daylight Time and Graceville facing Franklin County at 2 p.m.
Both Graceville and Sneads come in as runners-up in district, though each club sports players with. state tournament experience - just not as the AAAlevel. Graceville's roster of 12 is comprised of nine 9-year-olds, all of whom are playing in their third-consecutive state tournament after,going in both of their seasons in Machine Pitch, while four of the Sneads players went to state two seasons ago in Machine Pitch.
Graceville coach Rod Adams said that he believes that experience will serve his team well this weekend. "They know what to expect now, so it won't be so new to them," he said"I hope that helps us. We feel pretty good about it."
The experience is big, but the coach said it is the consistency on the mound that will determine his squad's ultimate fate. "For us to have a chance, the pitchers

Ma Miami, Clevelandwait on LeBrons decision,

The Associated Press

When it comes to LeBron James, all that's certain is this: base is about t9 feel scorned, and other is abdut to feel absolute joy. Miami or Cleveland? The same choice he faced four years ago is the one facing the four-time NBA MVP now. He became a champion in Miami. He still calls Ohio home. It's obviously not an easy decision, and the ramifications of what he's about to say - it's still unclear when anyannouncement will be coming, but it's more than likely sooner than later - will have a massive impact on the Heat and the Cavaliers.
SFor the Heat, keeping James is likely the only way they can stay a championship-contending team for a fifth straight season next year. If he stays, it would seem likely that Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh would re-sign with Miami as well, keeping the "Big 3" that has played in each, of the last four NBA Finals intact, for at least another season.
*For the Cavaliers, it's a chance to welcome home the player who fans - and the team's owner Dan Gilbert - directed so much scorn toward when he left in 2010.

As he makes his choice,, here's some of things he may be considering about returning to Cleveland:
Ohio is home: Akron has always held a special place in James' heart and he's remained loyal to the area. He's maintained his offseason home just south of Cleveland and spends summers there.

Shelly Sterling returns to witness standB

Shelly Sterling returns to. witness stand

The Associated Press

LOS ANGELES - A day after being berated in court by her husband, Shelly Sterling returned to the witness stand Thursday in a trial to determine whether she has the right to sell Donald Sterling's Los Angeles Clippers for $2 billion.
Mrs. Sterling said her husband encouraged her to sell the team for the best price after the NBA banned him from the league for life for making racist remarks.. She moved quickly to get bids and kept her husband informed daily, she said in Los Angeles County Superior Court.
When she reported that former Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer had offered $2 billion, Donald Sterling

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Shelly Sterling, thp wife of Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling, arrives at a courthouse Tuesday in Los Angeles.

became excited and said she had done a good job but within days his mood changed, she said. He became enraged in a

conversation, cursed her, said he would never sell the team and would sue the league, she testified. Shelly Sterling also de-

fended the deal she unilaterally made with Ballmer
- which would be a record price for an NBA team
- and said she believed

the sale would prevent disaster for the Clippers. Mrs. Sterling said she feared players and sponsors would boycott if her husband held on to the team.
Donald Sterling contends that his wife had no right under a family trust that owns the Clippers to singlehandedly make the deal.
In earlier testimony, two doctors hired by Mrs. Sterling to examine him declared that the 80-year-old had Alzheimer's disease and was mentally incapable to act as administrator of the trust.
In his own testimony this week Donald Sterling shouted from the witness stand that he would never sell the team.
OnTuesday, he alternate-

ly declared his love for his wife of 58 years with tears and then demeaned her as a woman intimidated by the "bad NBA" and incapable of handling such a large financial transaction. Before taking the witness stand, he kissed her.
But on Wednesday, he yelled "get away from me, you pig!" when she tried to approach him after her first day of testimony. NBA owners are scheduled to vote on the Ballmer deal next Tuesday. It's also the day that Ballmer's offer is set to expire ,- and there is no deal without the judge's approval of the sale.
SIf the sale isn't completed by Sept. 15, the league said it could seize the team and put it up for auction.

AP source: Blazers sign G Blake to 2-year deal

The Associated Press

PORTLAND, Ore. -Steve Blake is coming back to the Trail Blazers.
A person with knowledge of the deal who cannot comment until it is formally announced confirmed Thursday that the free agent point guard has signed a two-year deal with Portland. The agreement was first reported by Yahoo! Sports.. The contract is wo rth a reported $4.2 million with a player option for the second year.
Blake has had two previous stints with the Blazers, most recently from 200709, becoming a fan favorite before going on to play for the Lakers, Clippers and Golden State Warriors. . Blake has averaged 6.9 points, 4.0 assists and 2.2 rebounds over an 11-year NBA career. Last season he averaged 6.9 points and 5.6 assists, splitting the season between the Lakers and Warriors.
The Trail Blazers can use Blake to help back up All-Star guard Damian Lillard. Mo Williams, who was first off the bench last season, is a free agent this summer and has reportedly talked to the Dallas Mavericks.
Blake also has a relationship with center Chris Kaman, who agreed 'to terms with the Blazers last week. Kaman, who signed

Portland Trail Blazers guard Steve Blake is shown during the game against the New Orleans Hornets in Portland, Ore., on Jan.25,2010. ,

a 2-year deal worth a reported $9.8 million, Will back up starting center Robin Lopez. Blake's wife, Kristen, posted a photo of Blake and Kaman together while on the Lakers to Twitter, writing: "Steve Blake and Chris Kaman, together forever. #Portlandia." The Blazers 'used their midlevel exception to sign Kaman and their biannual

exception to sign Blake. Blake signed with the Blazers as a free agent in 2005 then was traded the next season to the Milwaukee Bucks. He signed with Portland again in 2007 before being traded to the Clippers in2010. . Blake's best season came in 2008-09 with Portland, when he started and averaged a career-high 11.0 points.

Cavaliers announce Kyrie Irving contract extension

The Associated Press

CLEVELAND - Kyrie Irving signed his contract. The Cavaliers now hope LeBron James will accept one from them. As they await a decision from James, the free agent whose delay in choosing where he'll play next has the NBA at a virtual standstill, the Cavaliers announced that Irving has signed his fiveyear, $90 million extension. The Cavs reached an agreement with Irving on the deal last week in the first hours after free agency opened. The deal couldn't be announced until Thursday, when the league's moratorium ended.
Irving is now under contract with Cleveland through the 2019-20 season.
"We are excited that Kyrie has officially committed to be here long-term with the Cleveland Cavaliers," owner Dan Gilbert said in a release. "Thefuture has never been brighter as we are building the team and franchise for sustainable, success. Kyrie is obviously a very big piece of our plan."
Irving averaged 20.8 points, 6.1 assists and 3.6 rebounds in 71 games last season, his third with Cleveland. The former No. 1 overall pick was also voted MVP of the NBA's All-Star game. .Gilbert made Irving the club's top offseason priority. The Cavs hoped in locking up Irving with a long-term deal it would make them more appealing to James, who is deciding whether to resign with Miami or return to Cleveland.
Chosen first in 2011,-one season after James left, Irving has averaged 20.7 points, 3.7 rebounds, 5.8 assists and 1.4 steals in 181 games. He's been somewhat injury prone, but the 22-year-old played in71 games last season. The one thing missing from Irving's pro resume is a playoff appearance, but the Cavs believe with a young nucleus of players - and maybe James - Cleveland can contend again in the Eastern Conference.

Cleveland Cavaliers' Kyrie Irving (2) makes a shot during the game against the Orlando Magic on April 2 in Orlando.
Before he committed to the Cavs on the extension, Irving had sent out mixed signals last season about his desire to stay in Cleveland. But he's been fully engaged in their plans and has reportedly made his own personal pitch to bring James back. i
"We couldn't be happier to have Kyrie firmly at the core of our Cavaliers team and family for years to come," general manager David Griffin said.- "He's already proven he's' among the best in the NBA and we're excited to watch his continued growth and success. To know that he is all in and shares our high expectations and championship goals is something we're extremely proud of.
"It is a clear reflection of how we all view our future together, with Kyrie fully, vested in this franchise and the city of SCleveland."

Popovich agrees to extension to stay with Spurs

The Associated Press

While the rest of the NBA world waits in limbo for LeBron James 'and Carmelo Anthony to decide
-where they are going to play next season, the San Antonio Spurs just keep quietly making sure the band is getting back together for a run at a second straight title.
In the, middle of the James hysteria on Wednesday, the Spurs issued a two-sentence press release announcing that coach Gregg Popovich had agreed to a multi-year contract extension. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

San Antonio Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich smiles during a news conference in San Antonio on June 14.

After beating the Miami Heat for the franchise's fifth championship last month; the Spurs quickly found out that Tim Duncan would indeed return

next season. Deals with Patty Mills,and Boris Diaw ensured that the roster would remain largely intact, so there was little doubt that the 65-year-old

Popovich would return for a 19th season on the Spurs bench.
That was confirmed on Wednesday in a presentation that was predictably light on fanfare. No comments from Popovich. No statements from GM RC Buford or owner Peter Holt. No big deal, just the way Popovich likes it.

Brazil trying to shift focus to 3rd-place match

Brazil's Neymar screams out after being fouled during the match between Brazil and Colombia at the Arena Castelao in Fortaleza, Brazil on July 4.

Neymar unscathed by

Brazil's huge defeat

The Associated Press

BRASILIA, Brazil - Neymar will leave with his image untarnished by Brazil's disastrous World Cup loss to Germany, widely seen as the player in charge of helping the national team recover from the historic home defeat.
Neymar's first World Cup ended in disappointment when he was carried off the field on a stretcher with a fractured vertebra. He was recovering at home when Brazil self-destructed in the 7-1 loss to Germany in the semifinals, helping shield him from attacks by critics ready to question his potential for' greatness.

While Brazil's national team will remain discredited for some time, Neymar's World Cup will be remembered mostly for his good performances until the back injury prematurely ended his tournament. Fans loudly booed Brazil's entire team after the final whistle in the match against Germany last Tuesday. The criticism of players continued unabated and was likely to continue on Saturday when the hosts play the Netherlands for third place in Brasilia. Neymar seems to be the only one being spared. "Neymar is our only hero," said Lucas Oliveira, a 15-year-old Brazilian fan in Brasilia. "The only rea-

son Brazil lost the way it did was because Neymar wasn't playing." The 22-year-old Neymar was carrying the nation's hopes for a title at home until he took a knee in the back during the quarterfi-, nal win over Colombia. Neymar is expected to remain sidelined for another fewweeks to fully heal from the lower back injury that resulted from a collision with Juan Camilo Zuniga. His club, Barcelona, expects Neymar back in early August to continue a recovery process that it said is progressing "very well." He should be fit for the team's first friendly after the World Cup, likely against Colombia on Sept. 5.

The Associated Press

BELO HORIZONTE, Brazil - Brazil coach Luiz Felipe Scolari and his players are trying to put the devastating semifinal loss to Germany behind them as quickly as possible, turning their focus to the farewell match at their home World Cup.
Scolari on Wednesday said they have to find a way to move on, and the team already has a new objective: win the third-place game Saturday to give fans some reason to celebrate. "Life goes on, we need to look forward to our next goal, and our next goal is to win the match for third place," Scolari said. "We have to play it. It has become our main goal."
The veteran coach said he knows the 7-1 result against Germany is going to hurt forever, but stressed that a "bad loss" can't erase what he considered was an otherwise good campaign by the national team.
Scolari said it was his job to ensure the players get past "this horrible feeling" that overwhelmed them after the loss to Germany
"The players' lives won't end because of this loss. It happened and from now

on they will continue being the players that they are," Scolari said. "They will continue playing for Brazil and we will continue to be one of the best teams in the world. Probably many of these players will play for Brazil in 2018." Only a few fans were waiting for the national team at its training camp outside Rio de Janeiro early Tuesday, including one who carried a banner reading "Shame." Some fans booed as the bus carrying the squad1eft Rio's airport. "We have to be professional and we have to show our character," midfielder Fernandinho said. "We need to get through these three days and play well on Saturday to try to finish third." Scolari said it's important to put into perspective Tuesday's loss, the team's worst in its 100-year history, matching the margin of a 6-0 defeat to Uruguay in 1920. "Because of the score, and the. high number of goals, we know the loss will go down in history," Scolari said. "But it also has to go down in history that it's the first time since 2002 that we made it to the semifinals. Our work wasn't bad, it was just a bad loss." Scolari blamed a "six-minute disaster" in which Germany scored four goals in the first half.

Defender out of position comfortable facing Messi

The Associated Press to be the one assigned to stopping Argentina star PQRTO SEGURO, Brazil Lionel Messis runs on the

- For a man about to face one of the game's most prolific scorers, Benedikt Hoewedes is remarkably calm and composed ahead of the World Cup final. Even more so considering he'll be playing out of his usual position. Hoewedes has been used as left back by Germany coach Joachim Loew duringthe tournament and the Schalke defender is likely

right wing.
"I'll do my part, but it will be a collective effort. That's how even a player. of such quality can be stopped," Hoewedes said Thursday. Hoewedes already has had to deal with another scoring sensation, Cristiano Ronaldo of Portugal. Ronaldo was held scoreless and Germany won its World Cup opener 4-0. Usually a center back,

Hoewedes has defied skeptics with his performances at the tournament. , "Since we are in the final, I must have done something right," said Hoewedes, one of the three Germany players to have played every minute of the tournament. The other two are goalkeeper Manuel Neuer and captain Philipp Lahm.
The position of left back has been considered the weak link in Germany's team for years. Loew has

tried several players in the position and even complained once that "I can't cut a left back out of wood" when none met his standards.
When exactly Loew came up with the idea of using Hoewedes is not clear, but he has been at left back since day one of the tournament.
"I am playing in a position for which I haven't trained. But I think I am helping the team with my presence," Hoewedes said.

Robben, Van Persie empty-handed again at World Cup

Netherlands forward Robin van Persie (right) is replaced by Klaas-Jan Huntelaar during the World Cup semifinal match at the Itaquerao Stadium in Sao Paulo, Brazil on Wednesday.

The Associated Press

SAOPAULO-ArjenRobben and Robin van Persie came up empty again. The Netherlands forwards, and the rest of the team, essentially ran out of steamWednesday in the World Cup semifinals, losing to Argentina in a penalty shootout following a 0-0 draw.
How different to a month ago and the start of the tournament, when the teammates scored two goals each and the Dutch soared to a glorious 5-1 win over defending champion Spain. It was all downhill from there for the three-time

World Cup runners-up. The Dutch never again reached the heights of that win over the world champions in Salvador, trailing Australia at one point, and then needing a last-gasp comeback against Mexico and their own shootout win over underdog Costa Rica to make the last four. On Wednesday in a grinding battle against Argentina in Sao Paulo, the Dutch were on their last legs.
Their fate appeared to be especially tied to the two front men, who both failed to score in open play in the knockout stages. And on Wednesday, the Argentine defense kept them covered

yet again.
The Netherlands' World Cup hopes faded through the last three games and finally ended with a 4-2 shootout loss to the Argentines at Itaquerao Stadium.
"You can't blame anybody, also not the boys who missed penalties," said Robben, who did score in the shootout. "You win together and you lose together."
As a team, the Dutch all appeared weary. Defender Bruno Martins Indi was substituted at halftime because he was struggling with the pace of Enzo Perez, and midfielder Nigel de Jong, only recently back

from injury, had to come off after an hour. Van Persie, the Netherlands captain, didn't even make the shootout. His. World Cup ended as he was brought off in extra time, with coach Louis van Gaal describing his lead striker as "exhausted." Van Persie trudged off and still hasn't scored in the knockout stage of a major tournament. Robben, however, did keep going. And the Netherlands' best chance of breaking the deadlock even fell to him. But like in the loss in the World Cup final in South Africa four years ago, he was agonizingly denied.

FIEA rejects Suarez appeal against ban for biting

The Associated Press

RIO DE JANEIRO - FIFA has rejected Luis Suarez's appeal against his lengthy ban for biting an opponent in aWorld Cup match. Football's international governing body on Thursday said its appeals com-' mittee rejected the appeal by Suarez and the Uruguay football federation in its entirety. But that doesn't mean Suarez has given up hope of playing on the opening day of the season.

Chicago Cubs relief pitcher Blake Parker throws against the Cincinnati Reds in the 12th inning of a game Thursday in Cincinnati. Parker was the winning pitcher in the Chicago 6-4 victory.

Cubs snap streak with

12-inning wiover Reds

The Associated Press

CINCINNATI - Arismendy Alcantara needed just one day to get the feel of the big leagues. After going 0-for-4 in his major league debut on Wednesday, the highly regarded Cubs prospect had four hits and scored the tying and winning runs as Chicago snapped a sixgame losing streak with a 6-4, 12-inning win over the Cincinnati Reds on Thursday.
"Today, I felt more comfortable," said Alcantara, who had a double, triple and stolen base before learning after the gamethat his stay with the Cubs would be extended. "I was just trying to make contact. I was happy I was able to come up and do the job." Alcantara and ,Starlin Castro both reached base with infield singles in the

12th off of J.J. Hoover (16). Valbuena, 0-for-4 with three strikeouts, sent a ball to deep right field that Skip Schumaker couldn't catch up with and was thrown out at the plate trying to stretch it into an insidethe-park home run. The out call stood after a umpire crew chief request for a replay review to make sure the new rule regarding home plate collisions wasn't violated. Blake Parker (1-0) pitched the last two innings and the Cubs avoided a rare fivegame sweep in Cincinnati. Ryan Ludwick homered, but the Reds couldn't overcome a lineup missing more than half of its regulars and the loss of starter Homer Bailey to an injury after five innings. First baseman Joey Votto is on the disabled list, second baseman Brandon Phillips and center fielder

both were out after leaving Wednesday's game withinjuries and right fielder Jay Bruce and catcher Devin Mesoraco didn't start, but the Reds still pounced on Cubsstarter Kyle Hendricks for three first-inning runs. The Reds were hoping to sweep the Cubs in a fivegame series for the first time since 1931 Alcantara recorded his first major league hit - a two-run double in the fourth off of Homer Bailey
- and drove in three runs. Bailey left the game after feeling pain in the patellar tendon of his right knee. while trying to pitch to Castro leading offthe sixth. Bailey completed his motion but didn't throw the ball and left the game after meeting on the mound with manager Bryan Price and trainer Paul Lessard. Hewas officially diagnosed as having a strained knee.

Phillies finish 4-game sweep of Brewers

The Associated Press

MILWAUKEE Jimmy Rollins broke up Matt Garza's no-hit bid with a single in the seventh before sparking a sevenrun outburst an inning later, helping the Philadelphia Phillies complete a fourgame sweep of the Milwaukee Brewers with a 9-1 win Thursday. Rollins greeted reliever Will Smith in the eighth by singling to left to drive home two runs. Garza (6-6) had just been pulled from the game to a standing ovation but could only watch helplessly from the dugout as his shutout evaporated.
The Phillies sent 12 batters to the plate in the eighth and got RBI ground-rule doubles from Ryan Howard and Cody Asche. Philadelphia swept a four-game series for the first time since taking four in Cincinnati in 2011. Rookie David Buchanan (5-5) struck out five in seven innings for the win. The right-hander tossed one of his best games of the season in allowing just four hits. Carlos Gomez scored the Brewers' only run with a solo shot to left-center to lead off the sixth for a 1-0 lead with Garza' no-hit bid still intact. It ended quickly after Rollins led off the seventh with a hard chopper past diving first baseman Mark Reynolds for

a single into right.
What followed was a swift and startling change of fortunes for a team clinging to its lead in the NL Central despite having lost five straight and nine of 10. Perhaps more disappointing for the Brewers is that they were swept at home by the last-place team in the NL East that had been swept in .its previous series in Pittsburgh. This should certainly be a season highlight for Phillies fans in a summer otherwise filled with trade talk.
Ascheand Dominic Brown eachjoined Rollins with two RBIs in the eighth. Things were going'so well for Philadelphia that pinch-hitter Cesar Hernandez got to come up to the plate twice in the inning.
The Phillies' eighth finally ended after Hernandez's infield single was overturned to an out following a. Brewers replay challenge.
Howard added a twq-run shot in the ninth for his 15th homer of the year. Gomez's homer was his 14th of the season. Otherwise, Milwaukee's lineup continues to struggle. After climbing to a season-high 19 games over .500 on June 28, the Brewers have watched their 6 1/2-game lead whittle away with second-place St. Louis due in town for a weekend series.

Philadelphia Phillies' Ryan Howard (6)is congratulated after hitting a two-run home run during the game against the Milwaukee Brewers on Thursday in Milwaukee.

four straight NBA Finals With Miami, winning two championships. They have made good on the promise Pat Riley made to James four years ago: Come to Miami, .be part of something special, and compete for titles every year.
Coaching staff: There hasn't been turnover in Miami's coaching staff

and front office since James joined the Heat. He's played for just one coach, Erik Spoelstra, and Riley has championship pedigree. 9wner: Unlike the situation with Gilbert, there's no rancor with Heat owner Micky Arison. The Heat have preached a family approach to everything, even' allowing members of James' inner circle access to the locker room and other team areas

- no minor thing within the framework of the Heat culture.
Big 3: James came to Miami in large part to play with .Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh, both of whom aldo are free agents. It's hard to envision Bosh staying if James leaves. It's easy to see both Wade and Bosh recommitting instantly, if James decides to stay in Miami.:
Miami investments: His wife has a juice bar in

South Beach and James is said to be investing in a chain of pizza restaurants, among other investments. It's not lifelong ties like the ones in Ohio, but ties to South Florida nonetheless.

It's easy to see why James is torn.
Whether it was one of Gilbert's planes coming to South Florida, or movers packing up James' luxury cars from his Coconut Grove, Florida home, or

Parsons signs offer sheet with Mavericks

The Associated Press

The Dallas Mavericks have made a move at small forward, with restricted free agent Chandler Parsons signing a three-year offer sheet worth more than $45 million. Houston will now have to decidewhethertomatchthe offer.
Several photos of Parsons signing an offer sheet were posted on a Cyber Dust account controlled by Mavericks owner Mark Cuban and the team early Thursday, when the NB!As ]moratorium on signing

free agents ended. The photos, including one of Cuban posing with Parsons,' appeared briefly just after midnight Dallas time. The Rockets have three days to match the offer, though it wasn't immediately clear if they would do so for the 25-year-old forward who has played for them the past three seasons. Parsons was a second-round pick out of Florida in the 2011 draft.
Dallas got an agreement in place with Parsons even before small forwards Carmelo Anthony or LeBron

James announced, where they will play,'a signal that the, Mavericks are most likely out on the two most prominent free agents. Anthony visited the Mavericks at the start of the free agency period, but Dallas owner Mark Cuban has acknowledged that he couldn't offer the forward a max contract. Parsons averaged 16.6 points, 5.5 rebounds and 4.0 assists last season for the Rockets. He has played 213 games, starting 207 of them, while averaging 14.1 points, 5.2 rebounds and
4.1 assists.

In Dallas, he would be in a frontcourt with' Dirk Nowitzki and recently reacquired Tyson Chandler. Nowitzki and point guard Devin Harris have already agreed on new contracts that will be able to be signed as early as Thursday. Chandler, part of the Mavericks' only NBA title in 2011, rejoined Dallas in a trade from the New York Knicks.
Shawn Marion, the primary small forward for Dallas the past five seasons, is a defensive specialist' and unrestricted free agent.

reports that a cupcake shop in Ohio had heard from people that James had already decided to return to , Cleveland, any nugget of information sets the rumor mill into overdrive.

But James' camp says it has all the information it needs to make a decision.
The ball, as it so often is, is now in LeBron James' hands.

Dear Annie: I am having a hard time forgettingmy boyfriend's past. Before we met, he subscribed to girlie magazines, went to strip clubs, bought lap dances, etc. I have always felt those things are degrading and disrespectful to women. He also has said he fantasizes about other women. - ,
Whenever I see him staring at a hot girl, it makes me think of his past. I do believe he loves me, but I can't help it:. This is causing problems in our relationship. How do I get beyond this?

George Whitefield, a renowned preacher in England and the American colonies who died in 1770, said, "Press forward. Do not stop, do not linger in your journey but strive for the mark set before you..' In yesterday's deal, I mentioned the Rule of Seven, which a declarer in a'no-trump contract might find useful. If, he has one top-trick stopper (typically the ace, but maybe the king if third hand takes the first trick with the ace), he adds together the 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. Does that apply to this deal? South is in three no-trump. West leads his fourthhighest spade and East puts up the queen.
Declarer starts with seven top tricks: one spade, one heart, four diamonds and one club. The other two winners can come from clubs. But if the club finesse is losing, is South in any danger? In yesterday's deal, the club finesse was into the East hand. If South had won the first trick with his spade ace, East would have won with his club king and returned a spade through South's jack-nine, giving West four tricks in the suit for down one. Here, though, the finesse is into the West hand. South has two spade stoppers if he takes the first trick, crosses to dummy with a diamond, and runs the club 10. Yes, West wins that trick, but he cannot cash out the spades.
If South ducks Trick 1, though, East can lead his remaining spade,.
