Habitat turns over
BY DEBORAH BUCKHALTER
Two-year-old Landon Conklin napped through his family's housewarming ceremony late Thursday afternoon, but his big sisters were wide awake for it, and afterward were busy giving guests a tour of their new home. They'd be busy for many hours, to come. Landon's mom, Kim Conklin, and his older sisters, Keirstin and Erin Aydelotte, were in charge of trying to get enough of their furnishings in place so that they could sleep in the house that night for the first time. In the meantime, they were happy to enjoy a ceremony made extra-special by a tribute to a now-departed friend of Habitat,
a woman who had been one of its biggest and most important supporters.
For years, JoAnne Hester and her husband Gene Hester essentially ran the Spring Break builds that happened each year with a couple of dozen students who traveled from Blackburn College and Syracuse University to help with houses in Jackson County. The scheduling and other organizing duties made for a massive undertaking, but the Hesters loved the challenge and became experts at it. They arranged meals for the student volunteers through local churches, found host homes for the students, arranged evening excursions and more.
Gene Hester took multiple
keys to 5
pictures of every build the students worked on, and created scrapbooks involving each. Although health issues forced the Hesters to step down after many years of service, they remained in the heart of the organization and always had a special place in it. They still had contact with many of the students years after the young people graduated. When JoAlne died last year, it was a losi that Habitat still feels. Thursday was her birthday, and Habitat felt that a tribute in her honoivwas a most fitting addition to this particular ceremony. This year's crop of spring break student had worked on Conklin's. house, and JoAnne's presence was keenly felt by the

Communit icon's work
honored with memorial marker
BY ANGIE COOK.
MARIANNA - Through overcast skies, a bright light shone on Borden Street.' On Friday morning, dozens gathered in Marianna to honor the life and legacy of a community icon, the late Queen Esther Bowers Brown, with a moving and sometimes humorous ceremony and the poignant unveiling of a granite marker bearing her name.
The Rev. Ronald Mizer, who leads St. James A.M.E. Church, of which Brown was a member, spoke to the crowd about her fiery spirit:
"When things wasn't going the way that I thought that they should go, she said, 'Pastor, don't worry about it. We're going to take care of our church and you, so it's going to be alright. But I'm still'mad at you.'"
The line drew laughs from those who had heard Brown challenge those she loved many times.
Sister Queen, as many called her, touched the lives of most everyone in attendance: young and old, black and white, those who knew and loved her, and
Community leaders unveil a marker dedicated to Queen Brown on Friday morning on Borden Street in Maianna.

But to see
a team we are rooting for strugTomas gling and beTZncent hind on the ]Murphy scoreboard
gives us a
lousy feeling. However, if we are truly diehard fans of our particular team, we never give up. We keep hope alive. A true sports fan never gives up on their team.
If we put life in the analogy of sports, we can learn many.lessons. We will realize that through the ups and downs of life, there will be times when we may not always come out on top.
As in sports, there's no time to feel down, because life is full of events, and there are many more games or life's situations on the schedule. It's imperative to 'be mentally and-- physically prepared
for the next game or chapter in life. One of the highest and most exciting things for a sports fan is to see his team or favorite athlete come back from the brink of defeat and become victorious. Just like we've seen athletes and teams bounce back, we must learn to never give up and gather the strength to make a comeback from some of life's cruel pitfalls. Christians often speak of their faith in God, their belief in the Bible and how they value their minister's advice when needed. Yet when things get tough, some appear defeated and seem to wallow in self pity. Whether we're a drug addict or dealer, alcoholic, thief, or have any other problems in our lives, if we truly believe what we profess as Christians, all the ingredients should be in place to make a comeback.
According to "The Word," no matter how bad off we are, "all things are possible, if we truly believe." Even non-Christians can attest to the fact' that comebacks from the
edges or brinks of serious problems in life shows the spirit of never giving up and having strong fortitude; but for many of us, having the power of prayer and God on our side gives us "much hope." Life isn't a game, it's the "real deal," but if we can jump up, cheer and root for our favorite athletes and teams as they make a comeback, we should apply some of those same emotions to ourselves and those we love. As true Christians, we may have to change our game plans at times and apply what we profess to believe in order to achieve the victory.

Athlete Saga: Jim Thorpe, Joe Haden and Ray Charles
"I went to my brother to ask for a loan...'cause I'm busted."
Written by Harlan Howard
and Daniel Ticotin and
recorded by Ray Charles here's a famous story, full of pathos,
about Jim Thorpe, the man voted the most outstanding American athlete of the first half of the 20th century. Retired from his professional football and baseball careers, the tale features Thorpe standing in the rain outside a theatre in 1951 without enough money to see the pjcture. The movie that was playing? Jim Thorpe: AllAmerican, starring Burt Lancaster.
Long ago athletes were admittedly not paid lucrative salaries, so a former athlete's financial fall was not so astonishing nor so steep. But in this era of well-paid per' formers, the number of professional players who experience bankruptcy is stunning. Why does this keep happening? There are myriad reasons, including brief career arcs, poor tax planning, exorbitant personal spending habits and bad investment advice. And when athletes go broke, it's big news. We seldom read about those who have wisely invested their assets.
I'm not a football enthusiast, but I read recently where former
NFL star Joe
guaranteed Margaret 12 percent McDowel return .
investment advisor guided him into purchasing promissory notes from a firm called Success Trade. Turns out the arrangement was a Ponzi scheme, not unlike Alan Stanford's 10 percent guaranteed CD returns from his Antigua bank. Success Trade is now barred from FINRA membership for the fraudulent sale of securities and must pay $13.7 million in restitution, mostly to current and former professional athletes. Trifthfully, though, it's not just athletes who are vulnerable to grandiose investment schemes. Many, of Bernie Madoff's clients were sophisticated investors. The promise of stable, double digit returns was too enticing to bypass.
After all, if someone offered you a guaranteed 12 percent annual return on your investment, would you be interested? Sure you would. So would I. Unfortunately, if it
sounds too good to be true, it probably is. So if an advisor tells you, "You'll never have a negative statement," or "I guarantee this annual return," it's wise to reflect very soberly on your relationship. Investments do notalways escalate in value, month by month, without interruption. Nor do they provide guaranteed returns. Youmight also ask your.advisor, "What was your clients' average absolute return in 2008?" and "What defensive investments do you recommend to protect my assets if the market experiences a significant correction?" The idea is to have more up statements than down, and depending on your age, goals anid risk tolerance, for your portfolio to reflect your particular investment needs. No player wins every game, and no investment arrangement can provide guaranteed returns.

W e every good American appreciates the
sacrifices of our military troops who are ready
and willing to drop into the hot spots of the world to protect our freedoms, there's something particularly special about the contributions of National Guard units.
Instead of faceless patriots in camouflage from elsewhere, the men and women of the National Guard are people from local communities. Our youngsters go to school together. We see them at the grocery store, or share a pew in church on Sunday. They're on our softball teams, or part of our golfing foursome. They share the river with us on hot summer days. So when a local National Guard unit is activated or deployed, it gets our attention. These are our people, and at once we take great pride in their duty and foster great concern for their well-being. Recently, there was talk of an imminent deployment of the 144th Transportation Company in Marianna, which would have been the third time during the Iraq war that the company had been sent into the hostile territory. The company was sent to Iraq during the first Gulf War in the early 1990s as well.
Today, VFW Post 12046 will host a party for the company at Blue Springs Recreational Area. The event was originally meant to be a happy social event in advance of the company's deployment. The deployment was cancelled, and our friends and neighbors will be able to stay at home, which is an even better reason to celebrate., So the party goes on as a gesture of appreciation for the service of our Army National Guard soldiers. We're honored by their willingness to drop everything to answer our nation's call, but we're thrilled that they'll be here with us at home.
Banning big snakes
ythons are a big problem in Florida. Really big.
Earlier this year, a nearly 18-foot-long Burmese python was captured in the Florida Everglades. It wasn't even a record - a python measuring 18 feet 8 inches long was found in Miami-Dade County in May 2013.
Native to Southeast Asia, the Burmese python has become established in the Everglades. The snakes disrupt the ecosystem by eating and outcompeting native wildlife.
In 2010, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service took the overdue step of banning the importation and sale of Burmese, Indian, Northern African and Southern African pythons as well as the yellow anaconda. Now the wildlife service is considering adding five more snake species to the list. The agency is taking public comment on whether to ban the boa constrictor, the reticulated python and three more types of anacondas.
A boa constrictor found in the Ocala National Forest in 2012 raised concerns that the species could be established there. Boa constrictors have already become established in Puerto Rico.
There are also safety concerns about the giant snakes. The Humane Society of the United States has tracked more than 500 human safety incidents involving large constrictor snakes including attacks and escapes from badly secured cages.
Boa constrictors and reticulated pythons have killed five adults and three babies, according to the group. The risk to people and native wildlife is simply too great to allow these destructive and potentially dangerous snakes as pets. While snake sellers might take a financial hit, the possible damage to Florida's environment is much more significant.

Letters to the Editor
Thank you for listening
I ai thankful to the Jackson County Commission for listening to the property owners of Jackson County and not passing another tax (the fire assessment) in its present form.
There is a better and more fair way to fund the fire departments of Jackson County. The way I think is most fair is a halfcent sales tax to provide the needed funding for our fire protection. Allow me to emphasize that the one thing I have learned in my 22plus years of serving with the Campbellton Volunteer Fire Department is that all of the volunteer fire departments in Jackson County are severely underfunded. It seems like we are always "robbing Peter to pay Paul" just to get by. In our own fire department, we do our own maintenance and, when possible, our own repairs, just to save a buck.
Most of our guys are wearing turn-out gear that is more than 20 years old,
and at times has literally fallen apart. We can't afford the $2,000-plus per turn-out set to provide the most up-to-date gear for our guys.
A half-cent sales tax would help with this problem a lot.
Some people will balk at the extra tax, and I, for one, am not in favor of taxes except in the cases of providing services that cannot be provided on an individual basis. Fire protection is one of those services. The argument that people who don't live in Jackson County will have to pay the tax holds no water; they are paying for our schools With a tax that is very similar. This tax will only make a difference of 50 cents per $100 purchase - not enough to make a difference. I ask the county commission to consider allowing the citizens of Jackson County to vote on this important subject and urge passage of the tax.
J. ERIC TOOLE, CAPTAIN
This summer get your boots wet
knew before starting down the hiking trail that
we'd have to cross three streams. No big deal, the young ranger cheerfully told us at the visitors' center, just hop from rock to rock.
The trail was lovely, dappled, cool and not too steep. But the first two stream crossings felt, well, tricky. It had rained a lot, and the streams splashed almost to the top of the rocks. With encouragement and a helping hand from my companion, I minced across, slowly and deliberately. You'd have thought I'd, crossed the Grand Canyon on a wire the way I panted with relief both times when I made it. At the third and largest crossing near scenic waterfalls, though, the stream cascaded over some of the, crossing rocks and covered them. All was quiet except for the rushing water, which sounded to me like an alarm. Cross there? Are you crazy? What if...? We admired the view, turned around and started back, retracing our steps. Soon, four seasoned hikers blitzed up the trail behind us. They'd crossed the cascading stream from the other side, using hiking poles - and gumption. As the first hiker passed us, I commented on the high water. "I just get my boots wet," he said and grinned. Cue the light bulb. Just getyour boots wet. I hadn't been thinking of the state of my footwear, but what are hiking boots for, if not for getting from here to there? We kept walking and this time I crossed the streams quickly, without help. I didn't hop, but I did step with sure feet. On the trail
as in life, I need to remind myself that doing is far easier than imagining the worst and then doing. "Just do it," indeed. That day, I got my boots wet and muddy, and it was exhilarating.
Crossing a couple of minor streams in Virginia's Shenandoah National Park is hardly a milestone in mountaineering. I tell you the story because we never know what we might learn when we push back from the computer, get outside and challenge ourselves. This is the perfect year to explore federal wilderness areas, and we explored some of Shenandoah's officially designated wilderness. In 1964, Congress passed and President Lyndon B. Johnson signed the Wilderness Act, preserving primitive places "where the earth and its community of life are untrammeled by man, where man himself is a visitor who does not remain." In the 50 years since, about 110 million acres have received federal wilderness status, the strongest level of protection. This sounds huge, but it's less than 5 percent of the country. Every year about 12 million people camp, hike, hunt, ride horses, fish and enjoy nature in other ways at wilderness areas. Mining and
drilling are prohibited, and visitors must leave their motorized and mechanical devices behind. Even the volunteers who help maintain the trails use hand tools. Shenandoah's wilderness is sometimes called "recycled" because none of the parkland qualified for wilderness status in 1964. The law requires that the land have "its primeval character and influence, without permanent improvement or human habitation." Generations of families had lived, built, farmed, mined and logged in the area before they were relocated to make way for the park, established in 1936. By 1976, though, about 79,000 forested acres in three areas - 40 percent of the park
- had recuperated from man's intervention and were designated wilderness.
The president can protect some federal lands by executive actiop, but only Congress can pass wilderness designations. Until our rancorous age, almost every session of Congress added acreage to the National Wilderness Preservation System. Since 2009, though, only one new wilderness area has been designated. Congress finally passed in March and President Barrack Obama signed the designation for Sleeping Bear Dunes Wilderness, more than 32,500 acres with 21 inland lakes in Michigan. During the 50th anniversary year, there are plenty of hikes and other events planned to celebrate wilderness. Go, and don't be afraid to get your boots wet.

Is there a patriotism gap in our country?
espite prolonged economic
troubles, deep political divisions, headaches abroad, and a sense that the country is on the wrong track, the heartening news this summer is that a majority of people say they often feel proud to be an American.
-A new Pew Research Center poll divides the public into seven political categories. There are "steadfast conservatives" who embrace social and small-government conservatism. "Business conservatives" who are more pro-Wall Street. "Young outsiders" who distrust both political parties but hold liberal positions . on the environment and social issues. The "next generation left" who are mostly liberal but skeptical about government's effectiveness. The "faith and family left" who favor an activist government but are somewhat socially conservative. The "hard-pressed skeptics" who are financially stressed, lean Democratic but distrust government. And finally, the "solid liberals" who take the liberal position on pretty much everything.
Pew asked members of all categories whether they "often feel proud to be American." The conservatives are most proud- 81 percent of the business conservatives and 72 percent of the steadfast conservatives say they often feel U.S. pride.
There's a dropoff after that, but still, majorities of other groups express pride. Fifty-nine percent of the faith and family left say they often feel pride; 56 percent of both the next generation left and young outsiders feel pride; and 51 percent of the hard-pressed skeptics, despite their skepticism, still often feel proud to be Americans.
Only among the solid liberals does the number fall below a majority, with just 40 percent saying they often feel proud. Why do they feel the way they do?
It's not just because they are liberito tHoEdf*
als or Democrats; other groups that clearly lean toward liberal ideas and Democratic candidates express more pride in America. What is different about the ones who take the least pride in the U.S.? According to Pew, solid liberals make up about 17 percent of registered voters. Most (69 percent) are white. They are "highly educated and affluent," according to the survey. They are the most loyal Democrats of all groups and "unflagging supporters of Barack Obama." Solid liberals are more urban than other groups, more likely to use public transportation, more likely to recycle. They're the most likely to say they want to live close to museums and theaters, and the least likely to hunt or fish. They're not terribly religious. According to Pew, 10 percent describe themselves as atheists, nine percent as agnostics, and 22 percent as "nothing in particular." Together, that is 41 percent who have no religious affiliation at all. Most of the rest aren't very devout, either. They voted for Obama more than any other ideological group
-91 percent. Today they give the president a job approval rating of 84 percent - 40 points higher than the public at large. They identify with the Democratic Party more than any of the conservative groups identify with the GOP
According to Pew, the most conservative Americans are likely to say that honor and duty are their core values. Solid liberals are more likely
to say that compassion and helping others are their core values. Pew researchers tested several ideas with solid liberals to discover their "key beliefs." Some of the statements they reacted most positively to include: 1) "Stricter environmental laws and regulations are worth the cost." 2) "Immigrants today strengthen our country because of their hard work and talents." 3) "Good diplomacy is the best way to ensure peace." 4) "The U.S. economic system unfairly favors powerful interests." And 5) "Abortion should be legal in all or most cases."
They agree with the statement that the United States is a great country, but do not believe it is any greater than some other countries. But here's the thing: Despite negative feelings about the U.S., solid liberals are the most optimistic of any of the categories; 70 percent say America's best days lie ahead. And more than any other group, they believe the United States has been successful not for its reliance on any set of principles but because of its ability to change. Back in 2008, Michelle Obama stirred controversy when she said, "For the first time in my adult life, I am proud of my country." As the presidential campaign went on, her pride in America was buoyed by her husband's success - a symbol, to her, of change in the United States. There seems no doubt the country has changed in the solid liberals' direction. There is a fledgling national health care system. More economic regulation. New environmental restrictions. A strongly pro-choice administration. A growing immigrant population. That's a lot of change - in just the last few years. Maybe those solid liberals should feel proud a bit more often.

The memorial marker installed by the City of Marianna and the CSX transportation company rests next to a sidewalk she helped bring about, a sidewalk that runs along Borden Street to the nearby railroad trestle she doggedly faught to have restored.
"She was a pitbull," Marianna Fire Chief Nicky Lovett told the assembled crowd.
"Anything she went after, she got."
Through song, scripture and testimonials, those close t6 her sang the praises of a woman who made it her mission to see repaired that train trestle, which had fallen into disrepair and was known to become impassable during heavy rains. That scenario caused a barrier for emergency vehicles when the train was passing overhead, greatly increasing response times to the area south of the tracks. Brown's family is all too familiar with her tenacity. As her sister Glynette Brown put it, "[Queen] believed in peace, but she didn't mind going to war." The spoils from her battle over a dilapidated train trestle - better emergency services for her community, sidewalks lined with blooming crepe myrtle trees - are there for all to enjoy. And the new monument to Queen Brown will be there for a new generation, providing inspiration and a message about the power ofgood works. Elmore Bryant, an area director with the NAACP, of which Brown was a Golden Heritage member, worked with her for years and viewed her as a friend and confidant. He described Brown as a motivator, organizer and educator and was hopeful that the day's eVent would motivate others to follow in her footsteps. "Maybe this will inspire some of our kids people to serve the county and help the community grow."

Habitat faithful who watched them hammer nails and scurry around to get other jobs done.
Gene Hester, the couple's children and other family members were on hand to bear witness to the tribute Thursday, and Conklin said she was honored to have been able to share her spotlight with such a hero of Habitat.
Conklin knows that if not for the spirit of such dedicated volunteerism, her house and many others like it might never have been built.
Conklin learned a lot about what it takes to get a Habitat house in place as she logged her own "sweat equity" hours with Habitat. To be eligible for the no-interest loan that made it possible for her to obtain the Habitat-built home, Conklin had to help
with the construction of her home and/or others. She can lay carpet now, for instance, thanks to that requirement.
She said that five years ago, she never could have imagined being a homeowner at the age of 28. And the speed with which her deal progressed was a whirlwind pace, she said. She first got interested in the Habitat housing program last October after hearing one of.her sisters talk about it.
The sister is a Habitat volunteer, and her enthusiasm led Conklin to attend an orientation session where she learned more. Before long, Habitat had approved herbuild and the project was up and running. This spring, students from Blackburn University worked on her home during their time here and she worked alongside them sometimes.

Divers, snorkelers converge for undersea'concert'
BIG PINE KEY - Nearly 500 divers and snorkelers submerged in the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary on Saturday for a "concert" beneath the sea broadcast by a local radio station. The 30th annual Lower Keys Underwater Music Festival, held at Looe Key Reef along the continental United States' only living coral barrier reef, featured four hours of commercial-free music piped below the surface via a series of underwater speakers.
"We started this as an arts and cultural event 30 years ago (and) thought it would be a one-time thing," said event co-founder and coordinator Bill Becker. "It's the only place we know of where music is put underwater for divers, .snorkelers and the marine life." The water-themed playlist included such tunes as the Beatles' "Octopus's Garden" and the themes from Disney's "The Little Mermaid" and television's classic "Flipper." Participants described the music as clear and ethereal, with underwater visibility of about 50 feet.
Snorkeler Uli Clef from Munich, Germany, said he was particularly impressed with the vivid colors and tropical fish he saw underwater. Some divers were costumed and pretended to play quirky metal instruments sculpted by Florida Keys artist August Powers. As well as offering an unusual experience for dive and snorkel enthusiasts, the broadcast included diver awareness announcements promoting coral reef protection.
The event was staged by radio station WWUS in partnership with the Lower Keys Chamber of Commerce.

DI YOUTH ANGELS STATE TOURNWNT Sneads blows out Belleview
BY DUSTIN KENT
The Sneads All-Stars had little trouble in their opening game of the Dixie Youth Darlings State Tournament in Okeechobee on Friday, blowing out Belleview 15-1 in four innings. Sneads had to wait longer than expected to take the field after the early game went long and a rain delay pushed a scheduled 10:30 a.m. start to 2:30 p.m., but the All-Stars didn't seem affected by the delay in the least, scoring seven runs in the first inning and never looking back. Another run in the second was
"We didn't make any errors, played solid defense and the girls just came out and hit the ball realwel."
Sneads head coach
followed by three runs in the third and four in the fourth to end the game on the mercy rule. "I was kind of worried the girls would be a little worn out by the delay," Sneads coach Steve Sprouse said, "but they came out and played good defense and hit the ball and didn't miss a beat. We didn't make any errors,
played solid defense, and the girls just came out and hit the ball real well. We couldn't ask for a better start."
Kaylee Grammer, Emilie Ganstine, and Marissa Jackson all had three hits to lead Sneads, while Ella Sprouse, Rea Green, Shiley Coulliette, and Jadyn Riano each had two base hits.
Sneads was next scheduled to play Saturday against the Okeechobee All-Stars, who took a 9-0 victory over Spring Hill in their first game Friday. The tournament is double elimination, with the championship game coming Monday.

Marianna rolls over Paxton in state tournament
BY DUSTIN KENT
The Marianna All-Stars put on a dominant display in their opening-round game of the Dixie Youth Angels State Tournament on Friday, routing the Paxton All-Stars 10-0 in four innings.
AshlynWierman and Amari Brown combined for a four-inning no-hitter, with Wierman starting and going the first two innings and Brown closing it out in the third and fourth. With the win, Marianna advances to Monday's championship round, which will,:follow today's gate against Wahnetaiat 9:30 a.m. CDT. Marianna coach David Castleberry said that he couldn't be happier about the way the team performed. "Our girls played real well. The pitchers just dominated," he said. "Our defense committed no errors,
everybody hit the ball, everybody got on base, and we just put the ball in play. The girls Were extremely excited. They just went out there ready to play ball and wanted to win. Our pitchers threw well and our offense and defense played an excellent game."
Wierman struck out five batters in her two innings and walked three, while Brown also had five strikeouts to go with one walk and one hit batter.
The Marianna bats were also alive from start to finish with 10 hits led ,by Angel Curry going 2-for-3 with a two-run inside-the-park home run to score Brown for the winning runs in the bottom of the fourth inning. Brown was 1-for-3 at the plate, while Jailey Grace was 2-for-2, and Wierman, Lashaina Harvey and Mattie Rooks were all 1-for-2 with two RBIs.
Jasmine Bess was 1-for-1 with two RBIs.
Castleberry said that the offensive performance was a product of a great deal of hard work by the players since the end of the district tournament last month. "The girls really stepped up their game from the district tournament. They spent alot of time in the batting cage and it paid off," he said. "We really spent the last couple of weeks in the cage working out the kinks and polishing their swings to get them to see the ball and put the ball in play. Everybody hit the ball well from the fop to the bottom of the lineup." If Marianna wins today, it will go into Monday's championship round having to be beaten twice to be eliminated, though the All-Stars can still win the title even with a loss to the Wahneta All-Stars, who were scheduled to play Paxton on Saturday.

CLEVELAND - If LeBron James was going to win another NBA title, heal broken hearts and continue building his legacy, he knew there was only one place to go.
To Ohio. Home.
Four.years after he left for Miami, a widely criticized departure that damaged his image and crushed a long-suffering city's championship hopes, James is coming back to play for the Cavaliers to try and end Cleveland's halfcetit title drought. He's returning to his basketbl roots, to the people who know him best
to ake good on a/promise.
James made the announcement Friday with powerful essay written for Sports Illustrated. His decision ended two weeks of speculation with the entire league waiting on his move.
When he finally made it, Cleveland was his choice over re-signing with the Heat. r "I looked at other teams, but I wasn't going to leave Miami for anywhere except Cleveland," he said to SI. "The more time passed, the more it felt right. This is what makes me happy."
James had not yet signed a contract, butle made it clear he will wear a Cavaliers jersey next season.

The Associated Press
Chris Bosh said countless times in recent weeks that he did not want to leave Miami. Not even LeBron James' departure changed his mind. And shortly after the Heat took a King-sized, hit, their future started coming together. , Bosh is staying in Miami, agreeing Friday to a five-year contract that will be worth about $118
million, said two people familiar with the deal. They spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because neither side had confirmed it publicly. Keeping Bosh addresses one of the Miami's top priorities after getting the news earlier in the day that James was leaving the Heat and returning to the Cleveland Cavaliers.
There's still plenty of work for Heat President Pat Riley to
do, however. But first, he and the team lauded what James meant to them over the last four seasons.
"While I am disappointed by LeBron's decision to leave Miami, no one can fault another person for wanting to return home," Riley said in a statertent Friday night. "The last four years have been an incredible run for South

Magical Messi or united Germany?
The Associated Press
RIO DE JANEIRO - The most- entertaining World Cup in algeneration comes down to a final match that pits the planet's best player against the tournament's best team.
Lionel Messi will lead Argentina out against GermanyatMaracanaStadium on Sunday fot a game that will define careers, cement legacies and be watched by a global audience of about a billion viewers. And it's a matchup that means more to both sides than just a chance to lift one of the most hallowed trophies in sports. For Messi, it's a chance to firmly make his case for being perhaps the greatest ever to play the world's most popular game. For Germany, it's an opportunity to make up for a number of near-misses over the last decade and re-establish itself as the dominant force in international football.,
And then there's the

matter of settling a historical score. Argentina and West Germany played each other in two straight World Cup finals in 1986 and '90, games that are well remembered in the sports psyche of both countries. Diego Maradona and Argentina won the first, the
-Germans took the second. So call this game the tiebreaker.
'At this point who is favorite, who is not, it doesn't
make a difference," Argentina midfielder Maxi Rodriguez said. "Both teams feel a responsibility to go all the way."
Most would name Germany as the favorite, especially after its astounding 7-1 drubbing of host Brazil in the semifinals.Argentina only reached the final after eking out a penalty shootout win over the Netherlands following a 0-0 draw through 120 minutes.
have rich history
The Associated Press injured throughout the tournament and had not scored.
PORTO SEGURO, Brazil - Diego Maradona was reportedly so struck by stage fright that he called for his mother's help as Argentina players sat in silence in their changing room before the 1986 World Cup final against West Germany.
But it was Maradona who provided the moment of brilliance that decided the game and gave Argentina its second title before 114,800 fans at the Azteca stadium in Mexico City. Four years later, Maradona was in tears as the Germans lifted the title in Rome's Olympic stadium.
The 1986 and 1990 finals are still two of the most talked about games in football history.
In 1986, Maradona was at the summit of his career and scored all four of Argentina's goals in the quarterfinals and semifinals - including the "hand of God" against England. Fraliz Beckenbauer was in charge of Germany in his first major tournament as coach. Germany's camp was in disarray and goalkeeper Uli Stein was sent home for insulting Beckenbauer. Journalists shared a hotel with the players and their nightly escapades became tabloid lore.
And so, in the noon-time heat of the awe-inspiring Azteca, Karl-Heinz Rummenigge and Maradona led their'sides out. The Germany captain was playing
Jose Luis Brown's header and Jorge Valdano's goal on a counterattack gave Argentina a 2-0 lead and Maradona's team appeared to be cruising. Then the Germans struck back.
Rummenigge and substitute Rudi Voeller scored from Andreas Brehme's free kicks and suddenly it was 2-2 with eight minutes tp play.
Maradona had been marked by Lothar Matthaeus, who did a good job throughout the match. But with the Germans trying to use the momentum and grab the winner, the ball took a weird bounce in midfield and Maradona sent Jorge Burruchaga racing with a deft left-foot flick. Burruchaga beat the offside trap and Argentina had the title.
Four years after that game, Beckenbauer became the first man to win, the World Cup'as both player and coach.
Germany dominated the final, outshooting Argentina 23-1 but the South Americans held on despite having two men sent off, Pedro Monzon and Gustavo Dezotti, a first for a World Cup final.
The match was decided by a disputed penalty in the 85th minute that was converted by Brehme with a low shot inside the post. Matthaeus had been the designated penalty taker, but he did not trusthis shoes and left it for Brehme.
Back in final, Germany bolstered by national pride
The Associated Press
BERLIN - Germany has come a long way since the national team last appeared in aWorld Cup final 12 years ago - and so has the team's image at home. In 2002, an efficient but limited Germany joylessly gound its way through a weak draw to muted celebrations, before losing to Brazil in the final. "It was the last time that a German World Cup team matched the picture the world has of us," the weekly Der Spiegel wrote this week. I
Things could hardly be more different as Germany fresh from its 7-1 semifinal win over host Brazil, prepares to face Argentina at the Maracana Stadium on Sunday.
Germans are celebrating "a team that plays smoothly, intelligently elegantly and fluently," said Gunter Gebauer, a philosophy professor at Berlin's Free University who specializes in sports. "People now get a picture of better Germans or a better Germany that is enormously flattering and certainly isn't entirely unjustified," Gebauer said.

Di Maria racing time to be fit for final
BELO HORIZONTE, Brazil - Argentina winger Angel Di Maria is racing against the clock to re-
cover from a thigh injury in time for the World Cup final against Germany on Sunday.
Argentina team spokesman Andres Ventura says Di Maria was practicing at "60-80 percent" at th6 team base in Belo Horizonte, and that team doc-
tors would monitor his condition on a daily basis "to see if he can play." Di Maria strained a muscle in his right thigh in the first half of the quarterfinal match against Belgium last Saturday. He missed Wednesday's semifinal against the Netherlands,
with Enzo Perez taking his spot in Argentina's midfield.
Though Perez worked hard in the midfield, Argentina lost an important .feature ,of its attacking game without Di Maria's runs down the flanks.

Dear Annie: I am a single mother of a wonderful 5-year-old son and am expecting another baby in the winter. My son's father cheated and lied, and then left me for another woman. He briefly came back, and I thought he meant to stay, but it was only a one-night stand. I became pregnant, and he left. He wants nothing todo with the children. I love my son and unborn child, but I don't know how it feels to be part of a loving couple. I've been single for four years and am at the point where I want to settle down and marry someone special. I want the picket fence and the dog. I don't know how to meet guys, and it feels as though I will never find my better half. n the past four years, I've been walking around heartbroken. I've been fat, thin, wild - and single. I feel so alone. I realize that my son loves me, but I have no one to sleep beside and make love to. Am I giving off some kind of loser "aroma" that's repelling men? It's like I have a sign printed on my head saying, "Run away." Am I just meant to be alone?
- MISS LONELY
Dear Miss Lonely* More likely, you are giving offa vibe that says, "I'm desperate," because that is how you are coming across to us. The worst thing you can do is grab hold of the first guy who shows any interest.
Place your complete focus on what is best for your mental health and most stable for your kids. Men who float in and out of your life aren't the answer. Take however long you need to sort this out. In the past four years, you haven't done the work to change your approach, so get some counseling. Create a solid environment where your children can thrive. (Your ex should be paying child support.) Become a woman you want your kids to respect. Then you will.have a chance of finding the right guy to accompany you through life.
Dear Annie: I own a small pizza delivery shop. I fill in for all positions, including delivery.
BillWatterson, the author of the comic strip "Calvin and Hobbes" from 1985 to 1995, said, "Weekends don't count unless you spend them doing something completely pointless."
SBridge players often compete only on weekends, when counting points and suit lengths will be very important. This deal occurred during a social game. What should happen in two no-trump afterWest leads his fourthhighest club and East puts up his king? Do you agree with North's pass over two no-trump?
Taking those questions in reverse order, North should have used Stayman, then raised three spades to four spades. That contract could have been made, but it would have been a tad lucky. Still, South could have had a more suitable hand. And at the worst, South would have ended in three no-trump when he did not have a four-card major. Maybe it would have made.
In two no-trump, South took East's, club king with his ace and exited with a low spade. East won with the 10 and returned the club seven, high from a remaining doubleton. West took South's nine with his 10 and erred badly by cashing the club queen. (The club jack could not be dropping, because if East had started with K-7-3-2 of clubs, he would have led back the club two, not
One of the things that most amazes me is how rude and inconsiderate people can be. They leave their dogs outside to "greet" you, and sometimes they let them out as soon as they open the door. I have had little dogs, big dogs and muddy dogs nipping at my legs, jumping on me and leaving scratches, slobbering all over my face and licking my hands. Twice, I've been bitten.
How do I tell customers that I don't want their yapping, sloppy, smelly pets anywhere near me? It doesn't help when they say, "Oh, don't worry, he doesn't bite. It's OK." It's not OK with me.
- DELIVERY GUY
Dear Delivery. This is not only rude; it is dangerous. No owner can predict with 100 percent accuracy what their dog will do to a stranger approaching the house. But as the owner of this shop, you can set policy.
SIf you are willing to risk losing a little business over this, inform callers that your employees will not deliver pizzas if animals are not leashed, held or kept inside. Your delivery people should remain in their cars if dogs approach and wait until the owners retrieve them. Drivers can call the owners and let them know where they are.
Dear Annie: I was reading the letter from "Concerned Grandparents," whose daughter and son-in-law are poor housekeepers.
We addressed that problem by paying for a professional cleaning service to come in once a month and give the house a thorough cleaning. They bring everything they need with them. It isn't cheap, but it makes a big difference.

South took the next club with his jack and played a second spade. East won and shifted to a heart. South won and led his spade queen.

No cure yet for the bird nerd
In addition to being a
good-old-boy outdoorsman, I'm a nerd. To be exact, an incurable bird nerd. My bird nerdiness began about five years ago and is chronically persistent.
Bird nerds, like most other folks, enjoy simply looking at feathered critters. Unlike most other folks, however, they'refuse to stop at casual enjoyment. Instead, we drive countless miles in hopes of glimpsing rare or seldom-seen species.
We pore over weather forecasts in spring and fall hoping for just the right conditions to make seasorial migrants alight in a Particular area. If news of an unusual bird sighting arrives, don't stand in our paths. We'll likely run you over. And don't follow our vehicles too closely. We have an annoying tendency to slam on brakes and gaze intently at trees, power lines, and roadside mudholes.
Modern-day bird nerds are not the stereotypical
"birdwatchers" of song and story. We do not wear all-khaki uniforms, knee socks, or pith helmets. We do not peer at feathered friends through hornmrimmed spectacles. We do, however, carry binoculars, spotting scopes, notebooks, and a veritable library's worth of field guides. A bird nerd too lazy to walk to the end of his own driveway thinks nothing of hiking ten miles uphill in the Smoky Mountains carrying 50 pounds of optical equipment in hopes of a brief look at a black-billed cuckoo.
Bird nerds also carry cameras and take pictures. Most of our photos are images of bird tails or bare limbs where a bird no
longer perches. Once in awhile we manage a clear photograph of a whole bird. When that happens, we actually believe $2000 for a camera and $3000 for a lens is money well spent. We bore our friends to tears making them look at that one good photo until we get lucky enough to snap another one, normally about three years' later on average. Bird nerds are perfectly normal members of society between birding trips. Once a birding excursion commences, normalcy is a thing of the past. A couple years ago I drove from Blakely, Ga. to St. Simons Island to seek out a reported snowy owl, an extremely rare bird for the Deep South. I left htirriedy at 3 a.m., not even taking time to tie back my ponytail or comb my beard. The Georgia State Patrolman who stopped me for speeding that morning encountered what looked like a cross between GrizzlyAdams and Sasquatch. My appearance notwith-.
standing, the officer was cordial enough until I mentioned I was "on my way to St. Simons to see an owl." At that revelation, he returned to his patrol car and locked the doors. When he came back with my ticket, he gingerly handed it to me at arm's length!
I'm normally quite comfortable and contented being a bird nerd. I sometimes, however, lament the fact that there are so few of us in my little corner of the world.
Being around regular
folks is a lot like being in a foreign country where no one speaks my language. I mean, how many people on a sidewalk or in a social gathering know the difference between a primary and secondary feather or' give two hoots (no pun intended) that I once saw a pyrrhuloxia in south Texas or a phainopepla in Arizona? Casual conversations, as a rule, conclude very quickly, often ending with the second party's
eyeing me suspiciously and sneaking furtively away.
On the whole, though, my avian eccentricity serves me in good stead and provides a generous measure of smug satisfaction. I mean, who else can use words such as "dickcissel" and "bushtit" in mixed company and not be forcibly ejected from a public building? And bythe way, I've taken to purposely leaving myhair loose and my beard uncombed whenever I go birding now, even when I'm not in a hurry. It doesn't make the birding any better, but it scares noisy children off trails, boardwalks, and beaches.
In addition, muffin crumbs and driedpednut butter in uncombed. beards are great for attracting sparrows ahd finches. I suppose I could give up bathing as well ii hopes of luring in vultures for a closer look, but I haven't.
SBass fishing is good for some anglers using topwater baits early in the morning and late in the afternoon. Buzzbaits can be especially effective over submerged vegetation." Largemouths may also be taken on Texas-rig worms near wood structure. Fish slowly and deliberately, especially during the middle of the day.
