Compass Lake In the IUs
Money to be used on
road improvement project
BY DEBORAH BUCKHALTER
Jackson County Commissioners rejected a proposed $15 annual increase in the special assessment paid by Compass Lake in the Hills property owners to pay for certain essential subdivision services, but authorized a drawdown from assessment reserves to pay for road improvements that the increase would have funded. The board's decision came Tuesday night following a public hearing on the proposal that would have increased the assessment from'$135 a Laymon year to $150. The uptick would have generated about $85,000, money that was to be earmarked for adding rock to certain dirt roads in the subdivision.
Several people spoke at the hearing, some who supported the increase and some who did not. Jim Gibbs, who owns 28 lots in the subdivision with a partner, said that he felt it was the obligation of the county commission to ensure that the roads in the subdivision are properly maintained and that he had been pleased with previous improvements recently undertaken there. The county commission had been responsible for establishing the Municipal Services Taxing Unit being discussed, he pointed out, saying he felt that the MSTU, while not perfect, was the mechanism by which the county could help the community continue to thrive and improve. Arthur Dutch spoke against the increase, saying he felt that the majority of residents there are not in favor of it. He disputed a straw poll that had been carried out by subdivision manager John Laymon indicating overwhelming support of the increase

CHAPLAIN IS CLUB GUEST
he members of the Marianna Optimist Club welcomed Gino
Mayo (center) as guest speaker at a recent meeting. Mayo, who
services as chaplain of Emerald Coast Hospice, gave the gathering an informative presentation about hospice while also dispelling many myths about the service. According to Mayo, hospice is not a death sentence, but is a huge support system for both the patient and the patient's family. He says that because of the care patients receive through the service, many patients actually improve to the point that they come off hospice care. Hospice has only been around since the early '70s and only became Medicare-approved during the Bill Clinton administration. Mayo says even though hospice is now decades old, still only about half of the hospice-eligible patients take advantage of the service. He is seen here with program chairman Jack Hollis (left) and vice president Arthur (AJ) Johnson.
Restoration of Jackson Blue
Spring Pond workshop topic
Special to the Floridan
The Florida Department of Environmental Protection invites local governments, scientists, environmentalists, agricultural producers and other interested parties to a restoration plan development workshop for Jackson Blue Spring and Merritt's Mill Pond.
Jackson Blue Spring and Merritt's Millpond Basin management action plan meeting will be Monday, July.28, from 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. at Bascom Town Hall, 4969 Basswood Road, Bascom.
"Jackson Blue Spring is a historical landmark and a valuable natural and recreational resource for Florida's citizens," said Tom Frick, director of the Division of Environmental Assessment and Restoration. "These workshops
provide both stakeholders and the public with opportunities to shape the restoration plan -a crucial component for successful restoration of this important resource." Excess nutrient pollutants such as nitrogen have caused an imbalance in the water quality in Jackson Blue Spring and Merritt's Millpond. This is the case in many springs across Florida, resulting in the development of algal mats, harmful algal blooms and other complications. At this meeting, DEP representatives will explain the importance of nutrient pollution reduction issues related to the Floridan aquifer as well as groundwater vulnerability. DEP officials will also discuss the pollutant contribution area for the Jackson Blue Spring system and potential measures to re-
duce nutrient pollution. Northwest Florida Water Management District representatives will discuss groundwater movement to the spring and Sthe spring's groundwater contribution.
Jackson Blue Spring, near the city of Marianna, is one of the 33 first-magnitude spring systems in Florida. Jackson Blue Spring and Merritt's ,Milt; Pond support a comple aquatic ecosystem and together constitute a vital cultural and economic asset for the state. The water bodies are popular ecotourism destinations for diving, snorkeling, fishing and boating.
With the support of Gov. Rick Scott, twice as much funding has been dedicated exclusively to springs protection than in any other three-year period in Florida's history.
New Jersey sues over Florida pizza
TRENTON, N.J.- The New Jersey Turnpike Authority wants a Florida pizza shop to pay a big toll for using a logo similar to the iconic Garden State Parkway's green and yellow signs.
The agency sued Jersey Boardwalk Pizza Tuesday in federal court over the logo it uses for its two pizza shops and on merchandise sold online. It says the company is trying to trade upon the fame of the Garden State Parkway logo to attract customers and potential franchisees. A lawyer for the company defends the company's use of the logo and says there's no way anyone would confuse a highway and a pizza place 1,300 miles away.
The turnpike authority calls the Garden State Parkway one of the most iconic and well known highways in the country.
1 killed after stolen truck forced off road
OCALA - Authorities say one person is dead and two others are seriously injured after a high-speed chase ended with a stolen pickup being forced off a north Florida highway.
The chase began
Wednesday morning after Ocala police say the truck was stolen from outside a health spa.
Officials say the suspects Sfled police, driving the truck at speeds of more than 100 mph, running red lights and endangering the public.
The truck eventually reached Dixie County, where authorities say Sheriff Dewey Hatcher used his department vehicle to force the thief off the road near Cross City. ' The Ocala Star-Banner reports that the person who died was an occupant of the stolen truck. Hatcher was unharmed.
The Florida Department of Law Enforcement is assisting with the investigation.
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. Florida has frozen assets and halted the operations of what officials say was a large English bulldog puppy mill in Jacksonville. Attorney General Pam Bondi said Wednesaay a judge temporarily shut down the business and froze the mill's assets while officials seek restitution for consumers. Accused are Brooke Roque, Anthony Roque, Glenda Roque, Kassaundra Buttram and Michelle
Echols, who authorities say sold the dogs on websites.
The businesses were named Remarkabull, Five Star Bulldogs, Grand Bulldogs, Matrix Bulldogs and Brook's Bullies. Bondi says more than 700 English bulldogs were sold for more than $1 million total, and that the five lied about the health and pedigree of the animals. Bondi says consumers were misled by claims the animals had valid health certificates and were certifiable with the American Kennel Club.
From wire reports
Groups ask to move Florida election, draw new map
The Associated Press
TALLAHASSEE - A Florida judge is being asked to move this year's election dates - including postponing next month's primary - in order to draw up new congressional districts for the state.
The request was filed Wednesday by a coalition of groups, including the League of Women Voters, who successfully challenged Florida's current congressional map. Circuit Judge Terry Lewis ruled earlier this month that the state Legislature illegally drew the districts in 2012 to primarily benefit the Republican Party.
Florida legislative leaders have said they will change the districts, but they want to wait until after the November elections to avoid disruption and problems at the polls. More than 1 million absentee ballots for the Aug. 26 primarywent out thisweek. David King, an attorney representing the League, argued in court papers that the Legislature has forfeited its right to draw the new districts and that it's wrong to
hold another election with an unconstitutional map. Instead the group wants Lewis to adopt a new map they filed, or use an independent expert to craft one.
King wrote that allowing legislators to "devise their own remedy for their own misconduct" would provide "the Legislature with yet another opportunity to violate the people's trust."
"If legislative defendants are allowed to once again avoid constitutional constraints that the voters have placed upon them, it will be a stain on the state of Florida and engender' even greater public mistrust in elected officials," King wrote.
In order to make sure there is time to put the new districts in place this year, the coalition presented several proposals to postpone the Aug. 26 primary to Sept. 30 or even later. Some of the proposed calendars also called for pushing back the NQv. 4 general election to December. Another alternative is to hold a new round of congressional elections early next year.
Lewis is scheduled to hold a hearing on Thursday to consider what to do next.
Redistricting occurs every 10 years based on U.S. Census numbers. In 2010, the state's voters adopted "Fair Districts" amendments to the state constitution saying legislators could no longer draw up districts to favor incumbents or a political party, a practice known as gerrymandering.
The groups that sued the Legislature contended that GOP consultants helped create a "shadow" process with the intent of drawing districts to favor Republicans.
Lewis agreed there was enough evidence to show that two districts violated the new standards. One is the sprawling territory stretching from Jacksonville to Orlando that's home to Democratic U.S. Rep. Corinne Brown. The other is a central Florida district that is home to U.S. Rep. Dan Webster, a Republican.
The new map presented by the League and other groups would completely shift Brown's district to north Florida so that instead of running down the middle of the state it would stretch from Jacksonville all the way to Gadsden County just west 'of Tallahassee.

Poll: Florida voters not happy with Crist or Scott
The Associated Press
TALLAHASSEE - Voters don't trust Republican Gov. Rick Scott and Republicanturned-Democrat Charlie Crist in what's turning out to be a close race for governor, according to a Quinnipiac University poll released Wednesday. And that means Libertarian candidate Adrian Wyllie could be a spoiler in a race where voters aren't happy with their choice. In a head-to-head matchup, voters prefer Crist over Scott 45 to 40 percent. When Wyllie was added to the poll, he re-
ceived 9 percent support and drew more independent voters away from Crist than Scott, making the race a statistical tie. "Voters don't like either of the major party candidates. They don't think either candidate is honest and trustworthy, they have unfavorable opinions of both major party
candidates, and that, to some degree, may explain how Mr. Wyllie's doing as well as he is," said Peter Brown, assistant director of Quinnipiac's polling. Wyllie said his message of keeping government out of voters' bedrooms, wallets, bodies and businesses is resonating, but he acknowledged he hasn't had the money to get that message to a large number of people.
"We're never going to have anywhere close to what Rick Scott and Charlie Crist have in this race, but what we do have is an Army of volunteers," Wyl-
lie said. "Granted, at this point I'm still the longshot,
- but I really think as things progress this is going to be a much tighter three-way race."
Only 39 percent of those polled said they thought Crist is honest and trustworthy, and only 40 percent said Scott is. Scott has struggled with his approval rating since taking office in 2011, and the number of people who don't trust Crist has risen while Scott's campaign spent about $18 million in ads, most of which attack the former governor..
Neither the Crist nor
Scott campaigns directly addressed the poll numbers, choosing rather to discuss campaign themes.
"Polls go up and down, but we remain focused on building a campaign that can communicate our plan for building a better economy by improving schools and strengthening small businesses and the middle class, and allows us to withstand whatever the Scott campaign checkbook throws at us," said Steve Schale, an adviser to Crist.
Scott spokesman Greg Blair said, "Governor Scott
doesn't make decisions based on polls, but Charlie Crist does. That's how he got our state into such. a mess when he was governor, always chasing the next election for the next office, with no vision for Florida's future." Crist is facing former Senate Democratic Leader Nan Rich in the Aug. 26 primary, but the poll did not ask Democrats about their preference in that race.
The poll of 1,251 registered voters was conducted July 17-21. The margin of error is plus or minus

Appeal court won't unblock
Florida gay marriage ban
The Associated Press
MIAMI - A Florida appeals court refused on Wednesday to overturn a judge's order that is blocking gay couples from getting married in the Florida Keys.
The Miami-based 3rd District Court of Appeal refused to invalidate a Monroe Countyjudge's decision temporarily preventing a wedding for Aaron Huntsman andWilliam Lee Jones and other gay couples. Circuit Judge Luis Garcia last week ruled that Florida's tan on same-sex marriage is unconstitutional because it discriminates against gay couples and violates the federal 14th Amendment's guarantee of due process and equal protection under the law. Garcia's initial order said marriage licenses could be issued to gays in Monroe County beginning Tuesday.
Attorney General Pam Bondi immediately filed notice of appeal, triggering an automatic stay that prevents any gay marriages until a potentially monthslong appeals process is sorted out. Garcia on Monday declined to
lift the stay because of the state's appeal, leading to Wednesday's action by the gay couple's lawyers. The appeals court issued a one-sentence ruling that keeps the stay in place. Bernadette Restivo, attorney for Huntsman and Jones, said she will file a motion soon asking the 3rd District Court of Appeal to certify the overall same-sex case as one of great public importance and allow it to go directly to the Florida Supreme Court for a ruling that would affect the entire state rather than just Monroe County.
"We're not going to let the opposition dictate the pace. They could drag it out for months," Restivo said. "We're doing everything we can to move it along."
. Voters added the samesex marriage ban to Florida's constitution is 2008, defining marriage only as a union between one man and one woman. Legal challenges to the amendment are alsopending in Miami-Dade County and in federal court in Tallahassee, and supporters of gay marriage have won more than 20 legal decisions around the country
in similar cases during the past year.
Currently, 19 states and the District of Coluinbia permit gay marriages. The remaining state bans are all under legal challenge. Bondi said in appealing the Monroe County ruling that the U.S. Supreme Court ultimately will decide the gay marriage question for states with bans such as Florida.
Veteran says he was forgotten
in VA clinic
DELTONA - A veteran of the U.S. Marines says he was locked inside a central Florida community clinic operated by the Veteran's Administration. Jeffrey Duck told WKMG he arrived as a "walk in" patient at the clinic around 1 p.m. Monday and sat in a consultation room for more than three hours before realizing he was alone in the building. Duck says he was worried he'd be accused of trying to steal something so he took cellphone video of himself walking around the lobby. That set off the alarm. So, he called 911.
The Veteran's Administration issued an apology to Duck on Tuesday and said they are reviewing their closing procedures. Duck says he isn't angry, just disappointed.

Lockdown lifted at Little Rock Air Force Base
The Associated Press
JACKSONVILLE, Ark. - Military officials locked down an Arkansas air force base for several hours Wednesday after reporting that a suspicious individual was on the sprawling complex near Little Rock, then reopened the base and said the threat was "no longer credible." During the lockdown, no one was allowed to enter or leave the base. Gates were closed and a line of vehicles stretched for a quarter-mile outside of the base, which takes up just a bit more than 9 square miles. "We responded with the necessary caution to secure our airmen, their families and Air Force resources," Col. PatrickRhatigan, the 19th Airlift Wing commander, said in a statement. He apologized for the inconvenience but said it was necessary to ensure that the base and its military and civilian staff were safe. "After a thorough search of the base," Rhatigan said, officials "found the report no longer credible."
About 7,000 to 8,000 people work at the base, approximately 1,200 of them civilians. Lt.MalloryThornton, a spokeswoman for the Little Rock Air Force Base, blamedthelockdown.
U.S. Air Force personnel arrange traffic cones near the front gate of Little Rock Air Force Base in Jacksonville, Ark., Wednesday. The base was locked down since late Wednesday morning amid reports of a suspicious person, though military officials offered few details about the incident.
on a "suspicious individual." Officials were not releasing specific details about what Prompted thelockdown and search. "Someone called in to security forces to say they had seen a suspicious person, what that person was doing has not been Releasedd" Thornton said. :
The base is a training site for personnel assigned to the C130 cargo airplane and hosts the' 19thAirliftWing, the314th Airlift Wing; the 29th Weapons Squadron and the Arkansas Air National Guard's 189thAirliftWing.., Three C-130s were'diverted to Little Rock National Airport dur-
ing the lockdown.
Christina Rivera, whose husband is an airman on the base, said she'd received an automated, phone call telling everyone on base to stay indoors. Rivera, who had been waiting outside the gate entrance for more than two hours at that point, said her
husband was barricaded in-their bedroom with their two children, who are 8 months old and 18 months old.
"All I want is to go home and be with my husband and my kids,"' she said.
Emergency crews were on the scene, and sirens could be heard over loudspeakers outside the base's entrance. The base had been conducting emergency response exercises, but officials Said Wednesday's incident was not part.of the drill.
Some vehicles were allowed to leave the base after being checked by security about two hours after the lockdown began.
The perceived threat never extended off the base; some local law enforcement agencies were notified about the lockdown but were not summoned. "They've got their own security force," said Bill Sadler, a spokesman for the Arkansas State Police.-,
Shane Carter, a spokesman for the Little Rock airport, said three C-130 aircraft landed at the city's airport about an hour after the lockdown began. The behemoths practice series of landings and takeoffsat the civilian airport.
"We see C-130s doing- touchand-go practices all the time, however it's very rare for them to hold at the airport," Carter said.
Audit: NASA doesn't have the money for bg rockets
The Associated Press
WASHINGTON - NASA doesn't have enough money to get its new, $12 billion rocket system off the ground by the end of 2017 as planned, federal auditors say.
The Government Accountability Office issued a report Wednesday saying NASA's Space Launch Systenm is at "high risk of missing" its planned December 2017 initial test flight. The post-space shuttleprogram would build the biggest rockets ever --'larger than the Saturn V rockets which sent mento the moon - to send astronauts to asteroids and Mars. "They can't meet the date with the money they have," report author Cristina Chaplain sid. She

said it Wasn't because the space agency had technical problems with the congressionally-required program, but that NASA didn't get enough money to carry out the massive undertaking., The GAO report put the current shortfall at $400 million, but did say NASA was "making solid progress" on the rocket program design. SNASA's launch system officials told the GAO that there was a 90 percent chance of not hitting the launch date at this time. This usuallymeans NASA has to delay its test launch date, get more money or be less ambitious about what it plans to do, said former NASA associate administrator Scott Pace, space policy director at George
Washington University. NASA is working on the problems GAO highlighted, but delaying launch or diverting money from other programs would harm taxpayers, NASA Associate Administrator William Gerstenmaier wrote in the agency's response. "Welcome to aerospace," Pace said, pointing out that large space projects often end up as much as 50 percent over budget. The space agency has been reluctant to put an overall price tag on the Space Launch System. The GAO report says it will cost $12 billion to get to the first test launch and "potentially billions more to develop increasingly capable Vehicles" that could be used for launches to asteroids and Mars'.

Ocean crash kills teen pilot seeking world record
- The Associated Press
INDIANAPOLIS - An Indiana teenager who was attempting to set a record for an around-the-world flight was killed when his plane crashed in the Pacific Ocean, and crews were searching Wednesday for his father, who was also onboard.
"Family spokeswoman Annie Hayat said the plane flown by 17-year-old Haris Suleman went down
shortly after leaving Pago Pago in American Samoa Tuesday night. Hayat said the body of Haris Suleman had been recovered, but crews were still looking for Babar Suleman. The teenager's sister, Hiba Suleman, said the trip had been a dream of her father's for years and that her brother was also excited about it. Haris Suleman had recently ob-" tained his pilot's license and instrument rating,'
Babar Suleman and son Haris Suleman, 17, stand next to their planeat an iiiort in Greemood, Ind., June 19 before taking off for an around-the-worldflight. '
which authorized him to fly an aircraft over oceans, and planned to be the pilot in command except in an emergency.

crashed into the ocean Tuesday night under unknown circumstances. The tail number provided by the FAA shows the plane is registered to a limited liability company whose address matches Babar Suleman's home address in Plainfield, Indiana, west of Indianapolis. . U.S. Coast Guard spokes, wman Petty Officer Melissa McKenzie said witinesses reported seeing the Honolulu-bound plane crash about a mile from 'shore shortly after taking off from Pago Pago InternationalAirport.'
The Sulemans left Indiana onJune 19 in hopes of mak-, ing the trip in 30 days to set the record for the fastest circumnavigation around the world in a single-engine airplane with the youngest
pilot in command to do so. The father and son were using the trip to raise money for the Citizens Foundation, a nonprofit that builds schools in Pakistan.
They missed the 30-day timetable, in part due to food-borne illness, but planned to return home Sunday.
The Sulemans had made stops throughout Europe, Africa, Asia and the South Pacific, and the teenager told The Indianapolis Star earlier this month that he was enjoying each visit.
"There is so much beauty and culture in each country that I couldn't possibly witness all that I want to in the span of two days," he said in an email to the newspaper. "That's, the maximum time we've been able to spend at a stop."
Seattle police: Homless ticketed most for pot
The Associated Press
SEATTLE - An analysis of the first six months of Seattle police enforcement under new marijuana laws finds homeless people and African-American males are more likely to be ticketed for public pot use than anyone else.
Officers issued 82 tickets for public possession and use between. Jan. 1 and June 30, according to the report releasedWednesday. Most of the citations were issued in public parks in the downtown core, where some homeless people hang out. One person was ticketed twice. Almost all the people cited are men with an average age of 34. Although more than two-thirds of the people ticketed are younger than 40, people as old as 77 have been ticketed for marijuana infractions during the past six months. About 36 percent of those arrested were African Americans, who are 8 percent of Seattle's population according to the 2010 census. About 46 percent of those ticketed told police they lived in.a homeless shelter, transitional housing or had addresses associated with homeless services.
The researchers caution that the numbers and time span of their study make their conclusions preliminary..The police department plans to release reports on its marijuana research every six months to answer a new city law thai reqies: monitoring of enforcement by age, race, sex aidI education.
Initiative 502, ,approved by state voters in 2012, included a civil iff:,e fo public consumpti o: , marijuana.
Criminologist Loren T. Atherley of th~e Seafle Police Department, 2 was one of the marijuana report's authors, notes that because marijuana stores opened in the state a few
days after the research pe-K riod ended, the situation" in Seattle likely has already changed.
Homeless people are disproportionately represented among those ticketed for public marijuana use likely because they are the population most likely to be found breaking other laws in public places, Atherley said. He compared the infraction to the open-container law for alcohol, although he has not done research on arrests under that law so could not compare data between the two kinds of tickets.
The department hopes to get other researchers interested in the data and will continue to study it. "We're going to see how this unfolds," Atherley said. He predicted the dataset would mature in another few years and researchers would be able to offer many more concrete conclusions.
"This is probably an issue that will be on the forefront of the public policy debate at least for 10 years to come," he said. In a statement from Seattle Councilman Nick Licata and CityAttorney Pete Holmes, they suggested the data indicate trends for race and homelessness that the city should continue to monitor. They also said the data show a need for places where people can legally consume marijuana in Seattle.

Broncos owner givmg up control dueto lzhelmers
The Associated Press
ENGLEWOOD, Colo. - DenvetBroncos owner Pat Bowlen is giving up control of the team because of Alzheimer's disease.
The 70-year-old Bowlen will no longer be apart of the club's daily operations, the Broncos announced Wednesday. Team President Joe Ellis is adding the title of chief executive officer and will have finalsay on all matters.
SThe Broncos say the ownership of the franchise is held in a trust Bowlen set up more than a decade ago in hopes that one of his seven-children will one day run the team.
"As many in the Denver community and around the National Football League have speculated, my husband, Pat, has very bravely and quietly battled Alzheimer's disease for the lastfewyears. He has elected to keeD his condition private because
he has strongly believed, and often said, !It's not about me;'" Annabel Bowlen said in a statementWednesday. "Pat has always wanted the focus to be solely on the Denver Broncos and the great fans who have supported this team with such passion during his 30 years as owner. My family is deeply saddened that Pat's health no longer allows him to oversee the Broncos, which has led to this public acknowledgment of such a personal health condition," she added. "Alzheimer's has taken so much from Pat, but it will never take away his love for the Denver Broncos and his sincere appreciation for the fans." The team issued a statement offering "our full support, compassion and respect to 'Mr. B,' who has faced Alzheimer's disease with such dignity and strength." Business is expected to go on as usual at Broncos headquarters. L

Dear Annie: Please help make young women aware of uterine cancer. My 29year-old daughter was diagnosed with stage-four uterine cancer last September. Some physicians think because you are young, you can't have cancer. This is not true. My daughter's symptoms were irregular bleeding and severepelvic pain. The doctors kept prescribing birth control pills or hormones. After severalyears, several physicians and several medications, she finally saw an ob/gyn at the University of Louisville who did a biopsy of her uterus - and then we received the devastating news. She was treated aggressively and is fighting every day to get better. She is such an inspiration. She had surgery several months ago, and they removed all the cancer in her abdominal cavity. But she still has it in two inoperable lymph nodes in her chest and is taking chemo.
If this story will help just one person or physician take that extra step, maybe another young woman won't have to go through what my daughter has. P.S.: Since I started this letter, I have learned that my daughter's cancer has spread
Lucius Annaeus Seneca, a Roman philosopher, statesman and dramatist, said, "Life's like a play: it's not the length, but the excellence of the acting that matters." A bridge deal is often not like a play, because it is the length (of a suit) that matters.
In this example, how should South plan the play in four hearts after West leads the club queen? South, with two aces and 11 points, was right to open one heart, not two hearts. North's jump to four hearts was aggressive. A game-invitational three hearts would have been normal. But South would surely have passed and ruined the play ... er, column.
again. I beg you to get the word out.
- LOUISVILLE, KY.
Dear Louisville: Our hearts our breaking for you. Uterine cancer (also known as endometrial cancer) is most common in women over 55 years old, so doctors don't often consider this when they first see a younger patient with symptoms. But if rou believe something is wrong, be persistent. Doctors aren't infallible. Risk factors include endometrial overgrowth (hyperplasia), obesity, women who have never had children, periods beginning before age 12,-menopause after age 55, estrogen therapy and a family history of the disease. Common signs are abnormal vaginal bleeding or discharge, pain with urination and sex, and pelvic pains. The National Cancer Institute (1-800-4-CANCER) offers a free booklet at cancer.gov.

South starts with four losers: one spade, one diamond and two clubs. He has nine winners: six hearts, two diamonds and one club. His only realistic chance is to establish dummy's spade suit. For that, he needs to find the spades splitting 4-3 and to have four dummy entries: three for spade ruffs in his hand and one to get back
to the dummy (after drawing trumps) to cash the 13th spade.
South must act immediately, winning the first trick with his club ace and leading his spade. Let's assume East takes the trick, cashes his club king, and plays his last club. West wins and shifts to a diamond. Declarer wins in the dummy, ruffs a spade, plays a low heart to dummy's 10, ruffs a spade high, leads another trump to dummy's king, ruffs a third spade, and cashes the heart ace.When everything passes off perfectly, South leads a diamond to dummy and cashes the remaining spade, discarding his last diamond. Excellent!

Jack Roush celebrates 50 years with the Ford Racing family
In the course of his racing career, Jack Roush has won hundreds of races and been involved in just as many post-race press conferdnricdsTo recognize his 50 years as part of the Ford family, Ford Racing compiled a list of his most memorable quotes.
After Greg Biffle won at Michigan in 2004,
Roush was asked how hard it was to get five cars running well,.
"I liken myself to the nursery rhyme about the old lady who lives in a shoe, she had so'many children she didn't know what to do. It's really tough
for me to bear the experience that I have, which has been considerable coming up on 40 years of being involved in professional racing,. "To bring that history to bear and at the same time not get in the way of the guys as they do what is:current and what is timely going forward, I try to bring forward a democratic process that brings out the best that everybody has and challenges the things that are not sound that would get them in trouble."
SKurt Busch signed to drive for Roger Penske in 2007 with a full season still remaining on his :
Roush Fenway contract. After Busch won at Richmond in September of 2005, Roush was asked if he was certain they would be together in 2006.
"To answer your question, I'm as certain as I can be without being certain." The crew-chief position underwent a change in the early 2000s, with engineers becoming the popular choice to sit on the pit box. After Carl Edwards won at Atlanta Motor Speedway to sweep both Cup events that year:Roush was asked about Bob Osborne's impact on the team.
"For a crew chief to be able to lead a team and
lead adriver, you can't get lost id :,ania, you can't get lost in conjecture, you can't get lost in rumor.
"You've got to take things apart and decide what you know to be true and what confuses you and deal with things analytically that are confusing."
One of the perks to winning at Texas Motor
,Speedway is you get a cowboy hat. Roush started laughing when he was asked about how his fit after Greg Biffle won therein 2005. "My head is pretty large sometimes, but I'm ,gonna see if I can trade mine down a little bit. Mine was a little large for me."
