Man arrested on drug and resistance charges
A Marianna man was arrested on drug and resistance charges
after he drew the attention of deputies who saw him duck out of view while sitting alone on the passenger side of a parked
Garret car. When the officers went to the car, they found a small bag of marijuana on the floorboard be-
tween his legs, according to the Jackson County Sheriff's Office. Robert L. Garrett, 29, is charged with resisting an officer without violence, possession of cocaine and possession of less than 20 grams of marijuana. The incident began around 11 p.m. when the deputies went to an address on Flamingo Lane in an attempt to serve an arrest warrant on a suspect they believed might be there. As they returned to their cruisers, deputies saw a man sitting in
the front passenger seat of a car parked in the yard with no one behind the wheel. Later identified as Garrett, the man quickly ducked down behind the dash in an effort to conceal himself from the officers, authorities allege. Whenthedeputiesapproached, they allegedly saw a bag of marijuana in plain view on the floorboard between his legs. Garrett was ordered to get out of the car and to place one hand on the roof of the car while the officer took control of his other
hand to begin the process of handcuffing him. Officers say he pushed off the vehicle as that attempt was made, colliding with one of the officer and knocking him backward. Garrett then allegedly started running down Flamingo Lane toward Merritt's Mill Road. One of the officers fired a stun gun, and officers were then able to detain and take Garrett into custody.
Officials say that Garrett was read his rights, then admitted
that the marijuana was his and that he was trying to hide from the officers.
Officers also found a small bag of suspected powder cocaine, several small pieces of suspected crack cocaine and a small amount of marijuana in a cigarette pack near Garrett at the scene of the incident. After being medically cleared by Jackson County Fire Rescue, Garrett was taken to, the Jackson County Jail to await his first appearance in court.

Jackson County teacher among Shine Award recipients
BY ANGIE COOK
Jackson County Teacher of the Year Anna Martin has earned another accolade.
The Sneads Elementary School educator was among the 37 outstanding teachers from across the state - each a Teacher of the Year from their respective district
- who recently received Shine Awards from Gov. Rick Scott. According to a statement from Scott's office, the awards were given to Florida teachers "who have impacted the lives, of students through the classroom." "I am so honored to be able to present the Governor's Shine Award to these 2014-15 District Teachers of the Year," Scott said in a statement.
"As we celebrate Florida's successes in education, we must applaud our* teachers' commitment to educating Florida's children.
Florida's students are among the best in the nation thanks to the commitment of our great educators. Our wonderful teachers play a fundamental role in preparing our students for college and a career." The Shine Awards ceremony took place during a breakfast reception July 11, where award winners had a chance to pose for photos with Scott, first lady Ann Scott and Commissioner of Education Pam Stewart.
The night before, recipients attended a gala event, at which Christie Bassett was named the Florida Teacher of the Year. "I was honored to receive the Shine Award and be recognized for something I feel so passionately about," Martin said. "Teaching is my calling, so to be recognized for the hard work I put into my career is such an honor." And it appears that a passion for education is something that runs

Parish was the 2006 Jackson County Teacher of the Year. Martin, earned the title earlier this year. "I think it's pretty special that we were both Teachers of the Year for the same county," Martin said.

our guide Doug Mayo (left) points out an area of briars to an attendee of the 2014 Jackson County Cattlemen's Tour on Thursday in Marianna. The first stop of the tour showcased a briar control and herbicide demonstration on property just off Caverns Road. Mayo and regional agriculture agent Josh Thompson conducted an herbicide trial on a patch of blackberry and dewberry field in June using seven types of herbicide and mowing as treatments. Although preliminary results were available after six weeks, it will take at least a year to truly determine the effectiveness of the various herbicides.
3-vehicle chain reaction crash results in minor injuries
BY ANGIE COOK
A Wednesday morning car crash that caused a chain reaction to involve a third vehicle resulted in minor injuries. According to the Marianna Police Department, at 8:13 a.m., officers responded to Penn Avenue in reference to a reported traffic crash in the northbound lane in front of the Marianna Toyota auto dealership. On arrival, officers determined the crash involved three vehicles.
An MPD investigation revealed that a 2007 Chevrolet SUV operated by Sheila Finch of Chipley was approaching the other two vehicles as they slowed for traffic turning into the dealership's lot when the SUV struck the rear of a 2006 Ford car operated by Loretta Latham of Chipley.
The impact of that crash caused the Ford to strike an enclosed trailer that was being towed by a 2014 Chevrolet truck operated by Randall Davis of Panama City. The trailer
subsequently became disconnected from the Chevrolet truck and lodged in the rear of that Vehicle.
All reported injuries were listed as minor. Jackson County Fire and Rescue took one person to Jackson Hospital .for treatment. All occupants of all vehicles were wearing their safety belts at the time of the crash.
An MPD representative confirmed that Finch received a traffic citation for following too closely.
This photo provided by the Marianna Police Department shows two of the three vehicles involved in a crash Wednesday on Penn Avenue.

Tensions on the 'faith and family left' in survey
t was one of those
that pollsters toss into the mix when probing fault lines inside political coalitions.
The Pew Research Center recently asked, as part of its "Beyond Red vs. Blue" political typology project, whether voters agreed or disagreed that it is "necessary to believe in God to be moral." Among the voters called "Solid Liberals," one of three major Democratic Party camps, only 11 percent of those polled
said "yes." People in the emerging "Next Generation Left" felt the same way, with only 7 percent affirming that statement. However, things were radically different among the voters that Pew
researchers labeled the "Faith and Family Left." In this crowd - the survey's most racially and ethnically diverse camp - a stunning 91 percent of those polled saw a connection between morality and belief in God. "That number, the size of that gap, jumped out at me" in the results, said Carroll Doherty, director of political research at the Pew Research Center. Faith and Family Left voters are "pretty loyal Democrats, the kind that supported Bill Clinton
and Al Gore. They voted for Barack Obama in 2008 and most of them voted for him again in 2012," he added. "But when it comes to moral and cultural and religious issues, they take a very different approach" from the Solid Liberals and those in the Next Generation Left. Asked if American society is "better off if people prioritize marriage and having children," 64 percent of Faith and Family Left voters agreed. However, 77 percent of Solid Liberals and 72
percent of the Next Generation Left disagreed with that statement. These faith-friendly Democrats were twice as likely to self-identify as "religious" than other liberals.
Just over half of them said they attend worship services "weekly or more," compared with 19 percent of Solid Liberals and 21 percent of the Next Generation Left. A slim majority of Faith and Family Left voters opposed gay marriage, compared with only 7 percent
of the'Solid Liberals. The same sharp divide existed on abortion.
The Pew team noted that S"fully 85 percent of the Faith and Family Left say religion is very important and 51 percent want the government to do more to protect morality- the highest percentage of any typology group" described in this survey.
Terry Mattingly is the director of the Washington Journalism Center at the Council for Christian Colleges and Universities and leads the GetReligion.org project to study
religion and the news.

Crist picks local chair of Dems as running mate
SThe Associated Press
MIAMI - Republicanturned-Democrat Charlie Crist chose Miami-Dade County Democratic Party Chairwoman Annette Taddeo as his running mate Thursday, a pick that could help him ease any doubts among the important South Florida party base that his political conversion is for real. Taddeo, 47, also serves as a Florida Democratic Party vice chair and sits on the Democratic National Committee's executive committee. She was her party's nominee for Congress in an unsuccessful campaign against Republican incumbent Ileana Ros-Lehtinen in 2008. Taddeo was born in Colombia to an American father and Colombian mother and spent the first 17 years of her life in the South American country. She also formed and runs her own business, LanguageSpeak, which offers translation services and tutoring in more than 240 languages.
"She truly is the Ameri4 can Dream come true," Crist said. "The most important thing to me is compassion and kindness. That's what we don't have now, and that's what we desperately need." Crist was a lifelong Republican until running for Senate as an independent in 2010.
He first registered as a Democrat less than two years ago. By choosing a running mate who is a leader, in the party, he should provide some comfort to Democratic activists who have fought Crist in five previous statewide elections.
Taddeo said she and Crist will provide a stark contrast to Republican Gov. Rick Scott, whom she painted as an elitist dedicated to corporate interests.
"I know what it's like to live on the minimum wage," she said. "I know what it's like as a smallJbusiness owner to worry"
about making payroll in a sluggish economy. "We have a governor right now who looks out for those at the top. We need someone who will fight for all Floridians. We need a governor who will fight for small business and help to grow the middie class."
Taddeo has gone by her married name, TaddeoGoldstein, on her personal website and party press releases, but will be campaigning only under her maiden name. Republican State Sen. Anitere Flores said the pick won't help because the election will be about Crist, who she noted chose to run for Senate instead of re-election when the state's economy tanked. She pointed out that the state's unemployment skyrocketed when Crist was governor. "The fact remains that it doesn't matter who Charlie Crist picks; you can't run away from your record," Flores said. "You can't run away from 11 .percent unemployment. When things got tough in the state of Florida, he just left us."
Another Republican, former state Rep. Juan Zapata, praised the pick.
"Putting aside politics, she's obviously got a great background. She's a successful businesswoman. She's a good organizer," said Zapata,- who also came to the U.S. from Colombia as a youth.
Besides helping Crist with women and Hispanics, Zapata said, Taddeo will also be a boost because of her long-standing involvement with national women's business organizations.
"She's well-respected at the national level, and she has the reputation as a business leader. She hasn't been in politics all her life," he said. It's unusual for nonincumbent candidates of either party to pick a running mate before actually securing the nomination.
From Page 1A
the board has handed out very few promises as department heads came in to defend their proposed budgets. But on Thursday, library director Deborah Hynes scored one. The board voted to buy an EnvisonWare software program for the library at a tost of $10,739. Commissioner Chuck Lockey said the money could come out of his discretionary fund, if need be, rather than from the general budget bank. In advocating for the buy, Hynes said the automated computer management system would free up some library employees who must now spend a great deal of time monitoring computer usage. It will also help with the problem of library loitering, printing problems and other issues, she said. Hynes plans to fully implement a two-hour daily limit on computer usage after the system comes online, a move she believes will help the county curtail a problem. The new system can automatically cut the user off after two hours and/or if staff determines that a patron is accessing inappropri-
ate content in the public space. Right now, unless they're asked by staff to move along after an extended period at a computer station, there are some people who would to tie up computers for hours on end. After she came on board earlier this year, Hynes curtailed that difficulty to some extent by doing away with the free coffee offered to library patrons. Some people, she said, would come in and spent full days at the computer, drinking coffee all day. She cut a $2,000 line item and reduced the possibility of damage to computers and carpets by doing away with the coffee, she said, and in doing so helped discourage people who were using the library as little more than a lounge. With the library crew trying to make sure that everyone gets a fair opportunity to use the computers available, the new system would reduce the potential for confrontations between staff and liigering patrons who object to being asked to leave a station.
The system will also help curtail the incidence of accidental print jobs that occur and are left behind and never paid for. When
it comes on line, patrons won't be able to print anything before properly ordering and paying for the material to be produced by way of a coin/bill machine tied directly to the print ordering component. With staff freed from the duties associated with computer and printer usage, she said, they could spend more time organizing the library collection, developing and implementing ideas to improve the library service, and helping customers in other ways.
Hynes offered some compromises in other budget line items, agreeing to reduce travel and outside training costs, as well as publication purchases in order to direct more money toward the software, which will work with tablets and laptops as well as desktop models.
She got no promises on other special elements of her budget, which included a request for $6,600 in annual dues which will give the local libraries and their patrons access to OverDrive,. a much larger bank of digital/e-books. Getting into the system, she said, would mean that the county will be "stepping into the big league" as far as what it can offer
Hynes also wants to utilize the bookmobile service in a different way this year, and asked the board to considering tapping a general assignment county employee to, once a week, drive the mobile to and from municipallyowned buildings throughout the county. Volunteers would continue to man the unit while it's parked at various places, but she doesn't want them driving it because of liability issues that could occur in having non-staffers on the road with the mobile. And instead of having the bookmobile parked in one place for a few hours, then moving to another location in a single day, she thinks it would be better to station the unit at one location for as much as a week, then move it to another part of the county for a similar extended stay. She said she's talking with the various cities about plugging into their power sources when the mobile is stationed in their communities.
Her proposed budget, like all the others com-. missioners must consider, may get a second look next week as the board continues its overall review of the budget.
More.than 100SW Florida warehouse workers detained
The Associated Press
MIAMI --- Florida authorities have arrested more than 100 workers at a Naples vegetable packing plant for allegedly using fake identities to get their jobs. The state's Division of Insurance Fraud led Wednesday's raid, in which at least 105 people were taken to the Collier County Jail. A labor attorney said all or nearly all of the workers are immigrants. Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials sa). they are providing support to state investigators in the case. The owner of the company, Alfie Oakes, told local media he had no idea the fraud was occurring. Neither he nor other representatives with the company known as Incredible Fresh returned calls and email messages left Thursday by The Associated Press. Florida Chief Financial Officer Jeff Atwater, who oversees insurance fraud cases, said the investigation began when a former employee sought medical attention for a job-related injury and admitted using a fake identity to get hired. Using a fake ID to gain employment or to submit a benefit claim is a third-degree felony under Florida law.
"Anytime a person commits insurance fraud it drives ,up the cost of insurance for everyone," Atwater said. Atwater said the investigation remains open, but there was no evidence the employers were aware of the alleged crimes. State investigators said of the more, than 100 detained, at least 27 stole identities of victims in 25 other states.
Labor attorney Andrea Ortega, who volunteers with the Florida Immigrant Coalition, said she arrived at the warehouse Wednesday evening to find dozens of families waiting nearbyforword of their loved ones. She said all or nearly all of those arrested were immigrants., "One man in the parking lot said his wife had been arrested. He told me he was too scared to go talk to officers (because of his own immigration status) and was waiting in the parking lot hoping someone would do him the favor of asking what had happened," she said. Collier County sheriffs deputies took the workers to the local jail on charges of workers' compensation fraud.
Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials can ask local authorities to hold for more than 48 hours

individuals accused of crimes who may be eligible for deportation.
ICE spokeswoman Tammy Spicer said her agency is providing support to state investigators. She said any resulting immigration enforcement actions would be handled on a case-by-case basis. Pastor Jesus Ortega of the Assemblies of God Ministry of Belem said he was helping the families of five detained parishioners gather the money for the $10,000 bond. He said all five had been in the country roughly a decade. Ortega said one 30-year-old woman is five months pregnant.
"They are all very upset. They are people who came to work and to help their families get ahead. It's very hard for them," he said from the bail bonds office. Federal work-site raids at companies with large numbers of immigrant workers made headlines under President George W, Bush, but have been rare under the Obama administration, which has focused more on employers who violate immigration and employment law than on the workers themselves.

Valarie Torrres and Lisa Pole hold'hands as they hope that a Miami judge would over turn the ban on same sex marriages, during the court hearing on gay marriage in Miami on July 2. The couple drove four hours to be at the hearing. Attorneys for gay couples and the state of Florida are squaring off at a hearing on a lawsuit challenging Florida's constitutional ban on same-sex marriage. Like others filed across the country, the lawsuit contends the gay marriage ban added by voters to the state constitution is discriminatory and violates equalprotection guarantees.
State judge legalizes gay
marriage in Florida Keys
The Associated Press
MIAMI--Ajudge legal-, ized gay marriage in Florida's most gay-friendly county Thursday, siding with same-sex couples in .the Florida Keys who said the state's ban is discriminatory and makes them second-class citizens. The ruling applies only to Monroe County and was immediately appealed. The lawsuit contends that the same-sex marriage ban- approved overwhelmingly by voters in 2008. violates the 14th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution, which guarantees equal protection under thelaw. Circuit Judge Luis M. Garcia, appointed by. Gov Jeb Bish" in 20001 and re-elected. twice', since then, said samersex couples could get mnarriage licenses as early as' Tuesday.
But Attorney General Pam Bondi said Florida has sole authority t, define marriage within the state, and that the voters' will must be respected. The referendum amended Florida's Conristitutition to define marriage as a union solely between one, man and one woman., Bondi's immediate notice of appeal creates an automatic.stay that likely: puts any same-sex marriage licenses on hold well past Tuesday, according to her office. In his ruling, the judge invoked other moments in American history when the courts had to step in to, guarantee the civil rights of minorities.
"The court is aware that the majority. o0f voters oppose same-sex marriage, but it is our country's proud history to protect 'the rights of the individual, the rights: of the unpopular and the rights of the power-less, even at the cost of, offending the majority,", Garciawrote. "Whether it is ... when Nazi supremacists won the right to march in Skokie, Illinois, a predominantly Jewish neighborhood; or when a black woman wanted to marry a white man in Virginia; or when black children wanted to go to an all-white school, the Constitution guarantees and protects ALL of its citizens from govern-
ment interference with those rights." "It hit us a little bit by surprise," said- attorney Bernadette Restivo, who filed the suit on behalf of Aaron Huntsman and William Lee Jones,. a couple for 11 years. "But it's very well written ... a thorough analysis of theargument, so we couldn't be happier." Florida has long been a battleground over gay rights. In the 1970s, singer and orange-juice spokeswoman Anita Bryant led a successful campaign to. overturn a Dade County ordinance that banned discrimination against gays., The county comrmission: reinstated the' ban two decades later. .
n 1977, Florida also became the only state that prohibited all gay people from adopting children.. A state court judge threw out the law in 2008, finding "no rational basis" for the ban and approving the adoption of two : "young brOthers bygay-, rights activist Martin Gill' andhis male partne The: state decided two years later not to appeal that ruling, making gay adoption legal.
But the Keys are culturallyfar removed from Anita Bryant's "Florida. Hunisman and Jones met at a gay-pride celebration in Key West, where gays and lesbians have found a haven in heasygoing, live-and-let-live atinosphere. Their lawyer said the couple would be celebrating on Duival Street on Thusday'ight. S everal Democratic politicians, including gubernatorial, candidate Charlie Cris, had nothing but praise for the judge's decision, "This is a great step toward equality in Florida," Crist said via Twiitter.
Gay-marriage :opponents condemned it: "'This . disrespects just under 5 million ,voters' and effectively disenfranchises them. It shows no regard for the rule of law or the Constitution," said John Stemberger, president of the Florida Family Policy Couficil, which led the referendum campaign. The voters should decide this issue, he said. The ban 'passed with nearly 62 percent sup-
port in 2008, and a repeal would require at least 60 percent support. "They do not have a consensus of Floridians, so they're trying to go to the courts for a quick fix. If they're going to do it, that would be the appropriate way to do - take it to the people again with another amendment. They deliberaely passed on that strategy because. they know that Florid-, ians by and large support marriage between a man and a woman," Stemberger said. Gay-marriage proponents have won' more than 20 legal decistolis against state marriage limits since "the U.S. Supreme Court struck dow the federal Defense of Marriage Act last year; although those ruligs remain in various stages of appeal. Many legal experts say the justices in Washington may ultimately have to decide the question for all-states.
Currently, 19 states and the District of Columbia have 14egalized same-,'sex marriage.
During a recent hearing on another challenge in neighboring M iami-Dade County; attorneys for gay couples noted that after a long legal fight, the state finally allowed them to adopt children.mButthe parentso.6f these children still can't be recognized as married.
"That inequality stigmatizes the couples and their children as secondclass citizens," attorney Sylvia Walbolt said. "Same-sex marriages are completely beneficial. They are entitled to the full protection of the Constitution."
Supporters of the ban didn't focus on whether . same-sex marriages are harmful or beneficial.
Anthony Verdugo, executive 'director of the Christian Family Coalition,.said it was- simply wrong for a single judge to overrule the will of the majority.,
"The people of the state have the right to decide," Verdugo said. , A third challenge, pending in federal court in Tallahassee, would force Florida to allow gay marriage and recognize same-sex marriages performed in other states.

Bank customer among 3 dead in holdup, shootout
STOCKTON, Calif. Misty Holt-Singh had just popped into the bank, leaving her 12-year-old daughter in the car, when the horror began. An hour later, the mother of two lay dead after a bank robbery spun into a chaotic police chase and furious gunbattle in which two holdup men were also killed. Holt-Singh was found dead at the end of a shootout in which one of the robbers who took her hostage used her as a human shield, authorities said. Whose bullets killed Holt-Singh remained unclear Thursday, a day after the burst of violence in this Northern California city, but police said the responsibility rests with the three bank robbers. "In my over two decades of law enforcement, I have never seen or experienced this type of total disregard for human life nor the intensity of the situation that our officers were faced with," Stockton Police Chief Eric Jones said. "It is very rare for bank robbers to take hostages. It is very rare for them to so heavily arm themselves and prepare to kill and then to actively and continually to try to kill our police officers." In the aftermath, police and FBI agents sorted through hundreds of bullet holes in 14 police vehicles," residents' cars, homes and businesses along the route of the chase.
The. drama began Wednesday afternoon when the gunmen held up a Bank of the West branch in Stockton and took HoltSingh and two other wom-
en hostage as they made their getaway. It was unclear what led them to take hostages.
During the hourlong chase through this city about 80 miles east of San Francisco, two of the hostages, both bank employees, jumped or were thrown from the stolen SU, one of them while it may have been going more than 50 mph. At least one suffered a gunshot wound. Both were expected to survive.
Police managed to shoot out the tires of the vehicle, and the getaway attempt ended in a hail of gunfire. The sole surviving suspect was identified Thursday as Jaime Ramos, 19, of Stockton, who wasn't injured. Police said the other robbers, ages 27 and 30, were gang members, also from Stockton. Police said they recovered at least three handguns and an assault rifle and that the gunmen had ammunition strapped to their bodies.
"The firing never stopped," Jones said. The police chief said 20 officers who fired their weapons were put on administrative leave pending an investigation - standard procedure after a shooting. He said he believes the officers acted appropriately. Stockton, a city of about 300,000, was hit hard by the foreclosure crisis and. the recession and slid into bankruptcy in 2012. Police officers left for jobs elsewhere, and' the city - which has had a long-stading ",gang: problem - saw a spike in violent crime. But the', city is close to emerging
"Just when you get some momentum in the city, stuff like this happens," Mayor Anthony Silva lamented. "It hits national TV and people are going to say Stockton's ghetto."
The bank branch was locked and empty Thursday. A note in the window said the closing was temporary and due to an emergency. Another note said the branch was set to close for good on Friday and move to another location.
Somebody had placed two bundles of flowers outside the,. front door with a handwritten note to "Misty." "Today you were so brave. You died in a haze of bullets, on a lovely afternoon," the unsigned note said. "We all will look after Paul and the kids. You will be sadly missed."
Holt-Singh's Facebook page became a memorial as friends, family and strangers paid tribute to the 41-year-old woman, who had close ties in the community and had been married to Paul Singh for 14 years.
On the website for the dentist's office where she worked as a treatment coordinator, Holt-Singh said: "I enjoy watching my kids play softball and swimming. In my free time I love to coach my kids in softball, snowboarding, and traveling to different countries"

Alabama motivated by sour end to 2013
The Associated Press
HOOVER, Ala. - Alabamard-, ceiver Amari Co6oper has been through the offseasonsi filled with talk of repeat nationall championships, and now he's endured one that began with sour memories not celebratory confetti showers. Cooper has no doubt which is more motivating. "The losses," he said Thursday. "It humbles you and it makes you hungry and aware of how losing feels, and you don't want to feel that way again."
The Crimson Tide was once again declared the Southeastern Conference favorite in media voting at the league's media days, and is regarded as one of the likely national contenders. That's nothing new. Nevertheless, the mood has been as different as the memo-

SEC players mostly leave lobbying to others
The Associated Press
HOOVER, Ala. - Southeastern Conference players have mostly been content to let league administrators and coaches take up the drumbeat for NCAA reform - not that they're complaining. SEC commissioner Mike Slive has even said the Big Five conferences could break away from the NCAA if players aren't compensated more properly. South Carolina coach Steve Spurrier has advocated that players should be getting a bigger piece of college athletics' substantial monetary pie for years.
Maybe the most ambivalent group in the whole process? The players.
"We're not starving," Florida
quarterback Jeff Driskel said. "But at the end of the day it would be nice to receive a little more compensation." The life of major college football players and coaches could change drastically in upcoming years once the NCAA and Big Five conferences are done revamping the current system.
Players at SEC Media Days were mostly pleased about the trend toward a few more perks
- including scholarships that would offer full cost of attendance - but also admit they've already got it pretty good. The fact that most of those upperclassmen might not be'around to benefit might make it easier to downplay.

Gurley: 2,000 yards 'would be awesome'
I THE ASSOCIATE UPRESSb
Georgia tailback Todd Gurley walks in to speak to the media at the Southeastern Conference Media Days on Thursday in Hoover, Ala.
The Associated Press
HOOVER, Ala. - Todd Gurley downplays talk of being a potential Heisman Trophy candidate, but the Georgia running back can't contain a smile at the mention of one milestone that's probably unrealistic. What would it be like to run for 2,000 yards like Boston College's Andre Williams did last season?
"If I could get 2,000 yards, that would be awesome," Gurley said Thursday at Southeastern Conference media days. "If the Lord would bless me with that, oh my gosh. That's going to be pretty hard to do in the SEC."
Pretty hard to do at Georgia, too, with a backfield
that also includes Keith Marshall and other highly recruited backs. But a player can dream. Gurley was one of niumerous key Bulldogs players who were injured during an 8-5 season. He missed three games but still flirted with 1,000 yards and has run for 2,374 yards and 27 touchdowns in two seasons.
He and Alabama's T.J. Yeldon are the marquee tailbacks in a.league that's short on experienced quarterbacks but has three 1,000-yard rushers returning from last season, not even counting Gurley or Auburn quarterback Nick Marshall.
There's also Arkansas' Alex Collins and South Carolina's Mike 4 Davis
among others. It's a deep group in a season when Georgia and other teams are breaking in new starting quarterbacks. Gurley was asked if there's a friendly competition among the running backs.
"Who wouldn't want to lead the SEC in rushing yards?" he said. "I just go out there and do my game. I don't worry about what other people do. I definitely respect their game and I definitely watch their tapes. I show respect, but it's not really a competition." Star running backs like Auburn Heisman finalist Tre Mason and LSU's Jeremy Hill have joined the trend of SEC running backs leavirfg early for the NFL. Gurley will be eligible
after this season. "Whether Todd stays another year or not, I don't know," Georgia coach Mark Richt said. "But if he stays healthy, I think he's one of the better players in America, no doubt about it. Hopefully he stays healthy.
"I see that he's getting into great condition. If we continue to get him in great condition for this season, I think the sky's the limit for him." Gurley doesn't think he'll necessarily shoulder more of the offensive load with the departure of prolific quarterback Aaron Murray. Hutson Mason has taken the reins after starting the final two games after Murray sustained a knee injury
Unproven Missouri still confident in SEC
The Associated Press
HOOVER, Ala. - Missouri made a surprising run to the top of the Southeastern Conference's Eastern Division in just its second year in the league. Staying on top might be even more of a challenge. The Tigers lost a huge chunk of their team after finishing 12-2 last season, including 7-1 in the SEC. Only nine starters return, including just four on offense.
But new starting quarterback Maty Mauk was confident during Missouri's appearance at SEC Media Days on Wednesday. In his mind, this isno rebuilding year for the Tigers. "People can say and do what they want, but we know what we have," Mauk said. "We have playmakers. We have an offensive line that is healthy coming back. We have a quarterback with experience and we have a defense that - people think we lost Kony (Ealy) and (Michael Sam) - but they obviously haven't watched Shane (Ray) and Markus Golden and Charles Harris."
Mauk earned quite a bit of experience last season as a redsliirt freshman when starter James Franklin went down with an

injury, making four starts and throwing for 1,071 yards, 11 touchdowns and just two interceptions. He also rushed for 229 yards and a touchdown. Missouri coach Gary Pinkel said he wasn't surprised Mauk played so well in difficult SEC environments last season and expects rapid improvement this fall. He'll have three experienced lineman blocking for him, which should help.
"(Mauk's) a winner. Players know it," Pinkel said. "He's a remarkable comn-
petitot They know it. They respect the way he leads because he leads in a very, very positive way." There are some questions about who will be Mauk's primary targets this season in the passing game. The team's top returning receiver - junior Dorial Green-Beckham
- was dismissed from the team in April. Bud Sasser is the most experienced receiver returning. The 6-foot-2, 210pound senior caught 26 passes for 361 yards and a touchdowrilast season.

Arkansas' Bielema: Uptempo dangers fact not fiction
The Associated Press
HOOVER, Ala. - Bret Bielema didn't bite this time. Not really. For the second straight year, the Arkansas coach had to respond at Southeastern Conference media days to another coach's skepticism about his contention that fast-paced offenses are hazardous to defensive players. A year ago, Auburn's Gus Malzahn said he initially thought that was a joke and Bielema fired back that he's no comedian. On Wednesday, Missouri coach Gary Pinkel said the contention that uptempo offenses lead to any more injuries is "fiction." "I don't buy the health issue in anyway," Pinkel said. "No one has ever come to me all those years and said, 'Gosh, I'm really concerned about the health of

our teams playing these fast-paced offenses.'" Bielema's response a few hours later was calm and good-humored, but he's no less convinced of his stance either.
"Not to carry from last year but I'm probably more of a reality-based movie
guy more than fiction," said Bielema, who lobbied for a 10-second minimum between plays. "I deal more in what I know, what I see, what I believe. Have I softened in my view of fast-paced offenses? If you ask me in that tense, you're asking me have I softened
my view on player safety. The answer would be no." The differing views help make the season-opener with defending SEC champion Auburn a little more intriguing. Bielema and Malzahn certainly are polar opposites in their preferred offensive styles. The Arkansas coach said maybe he's not going to break bread with Malzahn but he's also not going to start "throwing bread at him and rocks and everything else." . Mainly, the Razorbacks view the Aug. 30 opener as a chance to make quite a statement that they've come a long way since going winless in league games during Bielema's debut season. He said it's been a motivator for his team since the schedule was announced. Bielema is hardly guaranteeing a dramatic turnaround in Year 2, but said
College Fbotball Brief
Oklahoma is big favorite in Big 12
IRVING, Texas - Oklahoma is the overwhelming favorite to win the Big 12 title in a preseason media poll. The Sooners, who have
won eight Big 12 championships, received 47 of the 56 first-place votes cast. They had 548 total points Thursday in voting by media members who cover the league. The poll was released in advance of the league's football media
days next week in Dallas. Defending champion Baylor is led by senior quarterback and league preseason offensive player of the year Bryce Petty. It got the other nine first-place votes and had 508 votes. Six teams drew first-
place votes in last year's preseason poll. Kansas State was picked third, one point ahead of Texas. Oklahoma State was fifth, followed by Texas Tech, TCU, West Virginia, Iowa State and Kansas.

positives he's seen in areas like academics, offthe-field behavior should translate into more success on the field. "When that thing comes full-circle, we're going to start to win," Bielema said. "When we win, it's going to be able to maintain a winning style than this other thing that we've been living through."
Another positive from the offseason, Bielema said, has been what he's seen
from quarterback Brandon Allen, who struggled at times last season for the league's worst pass offense. Bielema said Allen had "probably one of the best offseasons that I've ever seen a positional player have, let alone a quarterback." ,"He's gotten stronger, he's gotten better mentally," the coach said. "He understands expectations he needs to fulfill as a quarterback."

McIllroy and Woods deliver at British Open
- Rory McIlroy had everything go his way Thursday in the British Open. A lovely summer day in England with abundant sunshine and minimal wind allowed him to attack Royal Liverpool. He made half his six birdies on the par 5s and kept bogeys off his card. And on the day TigerWoods made a promising return, McIlroy took the lead with a 6-under 66, his best score in nearly two years at a major. Now if he can only find a way to get to the weekend. McIlroy either set himself up for a good run at the claret jug or another dose of Friday failures. In
what already has been an unusual year for golf, no trend is more mysterious than Boy Wonder going from awesome to awful overnight.
Six times in his last eight tournaments, he has had a nine-hole score of 40 or higher on Friday that has taken him out of the mix.
"It's not like I've shot good scores in first rounds and haven't backed them up before," McIlroy said. "I'm used to doing that. I just haven't done it recently. We'll see what tomorrow brings and what weather it is and try and handle it as best I can.
"Hopefully," he said, "it's just one of those things and I'm able to turn it
around tomorrow." Woods also would like to keep moving in the right direction. He got off to a troubling start with two quick bogeys, nearly made another one on the fourth hole, and then looked like a 14-time major champion when he ran off five birdies in six holes toward the end of his round for a 69.
Not bad for guy who had back surgery March 31, who started taking full swings only a month ago and who had not played in a major in 11 months.
"It felt good to be back out there competing again," Woods said. Such pristine weather
- how long it lasts is the
big unknown - gave just about everyone a chance to score. Matteo Manassero broke par in The Open for the first time since he was a 16-year-old amateur. He began his round by hitting into a pot bunker, blasting out to the fairway and holing out from 160 yards for birdie. He made five birdies on the back nine, three on the par 5.s.
That made him low Italian - barely.
Francesco Molinari and Edoardo Molinari have games that are nothing alike, though they shot the same score. They were in a large group at 68 along with Jim Furyk, Sergio Garcia, Brooks Koepka, Shane Lowry and Adam Scott.

"I think that shouldn't be a deterrent, the fact that it might not change while you're here," said Georgia receiver Chris Conley, a member of the NCAA's Student-Athlete Advisory Council.
"You've got to think about others. When you don't think selfishly, you realize that the people behind you are going to have the same problems that you did, so you need to change those things.
"As long as the NCAA keeps evolving and growing, it can't become stagnant because the country is evolving and growing. As long as it keeps moving forward, that's all we can ask."
The NCAA's board of directors will vote on the Big Five's push for more autonomy in August and
heart every day. I get sick. I have to turn it off." The unhappy ending to last season left coach Nick Saban's concerns less about complacency and more about getting back to doing what led to three national titles in four years. As he put it, players and coaches must "check your ego at the door."
Alabama is still seeking a replacement to quarterback A McCarron, a race that has come down to Blake Sims and Florida State transfer lake Coker. Plus the latest crop to leave for the NFL must be replaced.
"We're basically an unproven team in some areas," Saban said. "There's a lot of question- marks because of the players that we lost and the players that we have coming in."
It hasn't changed theway Alabama is regarded:As the team to beat in the SEC.
League media picked Alabama to win theWest over defending league champion Auburn, and the overall title, in balloting released Thursday. South Carolina was picked to top Georgia Sin the East.
Saban noted that SEC reporters have only been right five times in the last 22 years.
"You've been wrong the last five years in a row," he said. "Every year that we won the championship you picked somebody else. To be kind, it doesn't mean anything. I'm rooting for you now. You're all my good buddies."
Despite that light note, Saban spent much of his time at the podium talking about disciplinary issues both on his team and, in general, college football and today's youth.
The Tide had a pair of players arrested in the two weeks leading up to media days, inning back Kenyan Drake and defensive lineman barran Reed.
Saban said both players are "suspended from activity" with the team.

to earn the win, surrendering just three hits and issuing three walks while striking out seven batters. Pittman also went 3-for-3 at the plate with two runs scored and batted over .700 with two home runs for the district and state tournaments combined. "We really kind of rode him alot (in the All-Star season)," coach Wiggins said. "With it being the last game, we didn't really want to mess with anything and he was really on cruise control, so we wanted to leave him out there. I felt like we owed it to him to let him go ahead and close it out."
Brady Donaldson also had three hits for Marianna and scored three runs,. with Ben Wiggins going 2-for-3 with two RBI and three runs, and Crumpler 2-for,3 with two RBI.
Evans had a double and scored twice, Beach drove in two runs and Caleb Torbett one, and Sam Wiggins also had a hit. ,

3 victory moving the team to the title round.
With the East Lakeland All-Stars already having a loss, they needed to beat Marianna Wednesday night to force another game Thursday, but Marianna took care of business to win its first Ozone title since 2006.
"It's certainly been a long-time goal for most of us. It really did make all those hot afternoons and thousands of pitches and pounding ground balls worth it," the coach said. "The kids were so talented that the coaches were joking that our wives probably could've coached them and been just as successful, but there was still a lot of hard work and exuberance after the final out was made.
"I don't think it has sunk in to the kids the significance of it. I was telling them that. I'm 50-something years old and never won a state title in anything. These things don't come along very often, and it's not luck when they do. It's hard work and skill plus a little luck. They'll realize that one day."
Because Marianna was competing in the Ozone "B" Division, it won't go to the Ozone World Series in Lexington, S.C., in August, with the winner of the '"A' Division Spring Hill American to represent Florida in the tournament.

Dear Annie: I am a nonsmoker who has asthma and early heart disease. When I am at family events and outdoor concerts or entering stores and public' places, I often find myself exposed to . secondhand smoke from cigarettes and cigars. Even though I make every atfempt to avoid this smoke, it is some-, times impossible. This results in my having burning eyes, difficulty breathing, a wet cough, etc. At times, I've needed oral and inhaled steroids because the inflammation was so severe. I am not particularly welcome in some circles because my attempts to avoid the.smoke are seen as "grandstanding" or being a ridiculous jerk. My only other option is to stay home and miss out on time with family and the concerts, festivals and other outdoor activities I enjoy. Smokers clearly know the dangers of what they are putting in their lungs, and I respect their right to do so. Why is there no consideration or respect for those of us who cannot tolerate the
effects of tobacco smoke? When did We become the bad guys who just need to suck it up (literally) or stay home? I'ni not trying to start a war between smokers and nonsmokers here. I am simply looking for intelligent, viable solutions to a common problem.
- GASPING FOR BREATH
Dear Gasping: We know how difficult this must be for you. Nonetheless, smoking is still permitted at most outdoor venues, in which case, there is little you can do other than avoid them or wear a surgical mask to act as a filter. At family functions, you can suggest that the smokers be assigned a specific area so they can puff in peace and the rest of you can breathe more easily. Your family and close friends should be told about your medical difficulties and even given information so they understand you have a serious problem that should not be taken lightly. (Information is available through the American Lung Association at lung.org.)
At the bridge table, reading is very important. In particular, third hand and declarer should read the opening lead, working out what the leader has in that suit.
In this example deal, how should South plan the play in four spades after West leads the heart nine in answer to his partner's overcall in the suit? The North-South bidding was a tad aggressive, but we all love that vulnerable game bonus.
South starts with four potential losers: two diamonds and two clubs. However, given East's bid, it is tempting to assume that he has the club ace. But if, say, South takes the first trick with his heart jack, draws trumps, and plays a diamond, East can win and shift to the club queen to defeat the contract. What does the heart-nine lead indicate?
That East has the heart king and 10. How does that help? South should cover the nine with dummy's queen and take East's king with his ace. Then, after drawing trumps ending in the dummy, South
plays a heart to his eight.-and discards a club from the dummy on the heart jack. South takes five spades, three hearts, one diamond and an eventual club ruff in the dummy. Note that if South calls for dummy's heart four at Trick 1, East should not play third hand high; he should play low, not wasting an honor when declarer is marked with the heart jack and ace.

DA cites evidence of Hernandez fiancee perjury
The Associated Press
FALL RIVER, Mass. Prosecutors have spelled out what they say is evidence that the fiancee of former New England Patriot Aaron Hemnandez lied to the grand jury that indicted him on a murder charge, including comments she made about a box she discarded at Hernandez's direction. In a filing Tuesday in Fall River Superior Court, the prosecution listed more than a dozen instances in which it says it has evidence contradicting Shayanna Jenkins' testimony to the grand jury investigating the 2013 shooting death of Odin Lloyd. Jenkins has pleaded not guilty to perjury Defense attorney Janice Bassil has moved to dismiss
the charge. A message left Wednesday for Bassil seeking comment wasn't immediately returned. A judge had ordered the additional information turned over following defense complaints. Hernandez, 24, has pleaded not guilty in the shooting death of Lloyd, a semi-professional football player from Boston who was dating Jenkins' sister.. Prosecutors have said that most of Jenkins' testimony wasn't credible, including about getting rid of a box from the basement of her and Hernandez's North Attleborough, Massachusetts, home. Jenkins told grand jurors she couldn't remember where she threw out the box, which she put in a trash bag, covered with baby clothes, they have said.
Prosecutors haven't disclosed what they think the box contained. Jenkins was granted immunity before she testified.
In Tuesday's filing, prosecutors claim they have direct evidence that contradicts Jenkins' testimony "concerning how, why and the manner in which she removed the items from the home." It says the same of her claim that she didn't attempt to hide the box when taking it from the house and that she hadn't spoken to Ernest Wallace after Lloyd's killing.
Wallace, described by prosecutors as Hernandez's right-hand man, has also been charged with murder. He has pleaded not guilty.
Jenkins is free on personal recognizance.

Titans' Lewan set to go to trial
The Associated Press
ANN ARBOR, Mich.
- Tennessee Titans rookie Taylor Lewan will go to trial in October on charges he punched an Ohio State fan.
The former Michigan offensive tackle is accused of hittingthe fan afterthe Buckeyes beat the Wolverines last season. He is charged with
one count of aggravated assault and two counts of assaultandbattery. He was told during a pretrial hearing Thursday to return to AnnArbor District Court on Oct. 27 for jury selection. The trial could begin the next morning. The Titans will not be preparing that week for a game, minimizing the possible impact of Lewan be-
ing back near his college campus. Lewan, drafted No. 11 overall, is one of three players drafted this year without a contract. Lewan and the Titans declined to comment after the pretrial hearing. When asked about the possibility of aplea bargain, Lewan's attorney, John Shea, said: "Who knows what the future holds?" He is "assuming" the case will be
decided byjurors. Shea asked for an expanded pool of jurors because of the publicity the case is getting and the request was granted, increasing the pool from 30 to 45. A conference is scheduled for Oct. 23, with Lewan able to participate by phone. Both sides will share lists of expected witnesses and exhibits.

AP Source: Hornets land Lance Stephenson
The Associated Press
CHARLOTTE, N.C. - Lance Stephenson is bringing his swag to Charlotte. The controversial shooting guard has agreed to a $27 million, three-year deal with the Hornets, according to a person familiar with the contract. The deal includes a team option for the third season. The person spoke to The Associated Press on Wednesday on condition of anonymity because the deal has not yet been made public.
Stephenson wrote on Twitter: "Indy, I had a great 4 years. Thank you Larry Bird, the fans, my coaches and teammates for the incredible experience. I will never forget any of you! I now have to look to the next phase of my career and the wonderful opportunity to continue to grow as a player and as a person in Charlotte! I'm excited to play for this
franchise and the fans!! #buzzcity." Stephenson met with Hornets owner Michael Jordan and other members of the organization Tuesday night in Las Vegas to make sure he was a good fit before agreeing to the deal.
The Pacers had offered Stephenson a five-year, $44 million contract but he chose to sign for fewer years. "While we tried our best to come to the best possible terms for both sides, there was not sufficient flexibility in the terms of the contract, particularly the length of the contract," his agent Alberto Ebanks said in a statement. "Lance will miss the city, the team and the mentor who helped transform him into the dynamic player he has become. He looks forward to making a strong contribution and beginning a new chapter with the Charlotte Hornets.

AP Source: Pacers get Stuckey for year
The Associated Press
LAS VEGAS - The Indiana Pacers blew Lance Stephens6n a kiss goodbye and jumped on Rodney Stuckey to fill the void.
The Pacers agreed to terms-with Stuckey on a one-year deal Wednesday, a person with knowledge of the agreement told The Associated Press.
The deal comes one day after the Charlotte Hornets swooped in to land Stephenson, the wild-card guard who dazzled with his versatility and infuriated with his after-the-whistle antics.
Terms of the deal, which was first reported by USA Today, were not immediately available. The person requested anonym_ity because an official
announcement has not been made.
Stuckey averaged 13.9 points last season, his seventh season with the Detroit Pistons. He was once viewed as a promising building block for the Pistons, and he averaged 16.6 points and 4.8 assists in 2009-10.
Stuckey only shot 27 percent from 3-point range and just over 43 percent from the field overall, so he won't bring a lot of perimeter shooting help.
But he is at his best attacking the basket and the Pacers also addressed some shooting needs earlier in the summer when they added SC.J. Miles.
The Pistons had little use for Stuckey after they brought in D.J. Augustin and Jodie Meeks to add to their backcourt. They also
added forward Caron But- 3-point shooting to the ler, who can bring some team.
