Counterfeit cash passed to area Dollar Generals
BY DEBORAH BUCKHALTER
Cottondale Police Chief WilliamWatford and other area law enforcement officers are on the trail of four women suspected of passing counterfeit money to at least two area Dollar General stores Tuesday.
Watford said he had reviewed surveillance footage from a Marianna-area case and confirmed that it appears that the women involved in that incident were the same ones who passed a total of $900 worth of $100 bills at the Cottondale Dollar General on Tuesday evening., Washington County authorities are looking into a Sunny Hills Dollar General case, but he did not immediately know if the same individuals are suspected in that incident.
The women suspected in his case were believed to be traveling in a black F-150 Ford truck
at the time they visited the store in Cottondale, at 3310 Main St, Watford said.
Staffers at the Cottondale store learned that the bills were counterfeit when an employee tried to make a deposit Wednesday around 5 p.m. Bank detection devices identified the bills as counterfeit, Watford said. The womeh suspected in the case came into the store around 7 p.m. lTuesday. Two of them bought Visa cash cards using fake $100 bills. One of them used three bills to obtain a $300 card, and the other used four to obtain a $400 card, he said. The other two women each ised' a fake $100 bill to make small purchases, and received legitimate store cash in change. Neither Watford nor store employees recognized the women as people known in the coImmunity. He provided surveillance images and asks that ,anyone
Three of four suspects sought in connection with a counterfeit billpassing case are seen in a still image of video surveillance footage provided by Cottondale Police Chief William Watford. The video was recorded Tuiesday evening at the Dollar General store in his jurisdiction.

police and fire officials responded to a car fire Thursday at the residence of Mercedes Smith on Borden Street in Marianna. According to police, Smith was driving the car around

Jackson County commissioners will set,a tentative tax rate Monday as the board's 2014-15 budget.deliberations continue. The board members have spent eight. days trimming the individual budgets submitted by their various departments and others seedig fliicl'Thiplfrt from 'the board.
They've trimmed thousands of dollars by cutting high-dollar purchas:es requested, such as for vehicles and road equipment, but are still well shy of balancing the numbers, that the requests are being measured against. The Road and Bridge Department's : request for more than $4 million wor$h of equipment, for instance, was culled to a mere $600,000 in preliminary discussions, although the board has not yet set any of its early decisionsin stone. If they stick with the current tax rate, charging $7.32 for every $1,000
of taxable valie, that 7.32 percent millage rate would generate about $10,494,753. Because of changes in overall property values over the. year, that rate would actually generate $92,970 more' than the same hiillage geneated lastyear. If the county does this, come missioners would have to .adviti se a poposed tax increase beUse theo-to taincreasesurpasses the threshold that kicks in the advertising requirement. . Or, the county could adopt the rollback rate of 7.257, meaning that property owners would instead pay justover $7.25 per $1,000 of taxable value in the coming fiscal year. It would result in less than $3,000 extra being collected in the coming year. The county has a long history of adopting the rollback rate. In a decade's time, doin' this resulted in enough backpedaling to take the millage from 8.5 in 2004 down to the current 7.32. It has

Sheriff warns again of grandparentseam'L
BY ANGLE COOK
Area law enforcement is again warning of a deceit sometimes known as the "grandparent scam." Accordingto astatement from the Jackson County Sheriff's Office, a scammer posing as a grandchild of the would-be victim will call, saying he or she is in jail somewhere and in need of money. In other accounts of the same scam, callers may say their car is broken down or reference some other situation that requires monetary assistance.
Though sometimes prepared with basic knowledge of the potential victim's life - through social
media, the phone book or other publicly available source - the scammer may simply say, "This is your favorite grandchild," and never give a name. The hope is the victim will offer a name in response. In this most recent warning, the Sheriffs Office again advises the public not to send anyone any money in cases of this nature.
Many safety experts also advise against giving any personal information during an unsolicited phone call.
SIf you believe you or someone you know has been the victim of a scam, contact the Jackson County Sheriff's Office at 482-9624.

Judge skeptical about fixing map now
TALLAHASSEE-AFloridajudge saidThursdaythat he's "extremely skeptical" about changing the state's congressional districts before the 2014 elections. Duringathree-hourhearing that included echoes of past Florida courtroom clashes over elections, lawyers argued over how soon a new congressional map should be drawn up. Circuit Judge Terry Lewis earlier this month threw out Florida's current congressional map, saying it is illegal because districts were drawn to benefit the Republican Party. State legislative leaders said they would accept the decision and not challenge it further.
But Lewis has yet to decide who should draw the new districts, or just as importantly, when they should be put in place. That triggered a vigorous back-and-forth in his courtroom over which side was engaged in partisan behavior, or washarming voters.
Lawyers for the coalition that sued the Florida Leg-. islature argued that lawmakers can't be trusted to put in districts that meet the "Fair Districts" amendments adopted by voters four years ago. They asked Lewis to adopt a remedial map they gave him this week and postpone the Aug. 26 primary election in order
to put in the new districts in place.
Attorneys representing the state contended any changes now would spark chaos and confusion and pointed out that the groups want to cut short the amount of time military voters have to send in ballots from overseas. They also raised questions as to whether' Lewis has the ability to move around election dates set by state and federal law. Lewis did not rule from the bench, saying instead he would make a final determination by the end of next week. But he also made it clear he was unsure about what he could do legally, and whether it was too late to make any changes now.
Attorneys for both sides made it clear that they may appeal, or even file a new lawsuit, depending on what the judge decides. John Devaney, an attorney representing some of the groups that sued the Legislature, saidhis organization may ask a federal court to intervene if Florida moves ahead with an election that relies on a map deemed unconstitutional.
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.
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 Plorida 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.

JACKSON COUNTY FLORIDAN * www.jcfloridan.com
Pope Francis and the Pentecostal smartphone
he image projected onto the giant
screen above the
recent Kenneth Copeland Ministries conference was not your usual clever smartphone video.
Still, the crowd of Pentecostal Protestants was mesmerized because the man vested in white who addressed them - in Italian, with subtitles - was one of the last people on earth they would have expected to warmly bestow his blessing on them.
Pope Francis stressed
that they "must encounter one another as brothers. We must cry together.... These tears will unite us, the tears of love. ... I speak to you in a simple way, with joy and yearning. Let us allow our yearning to grow, because this will propel us to find each other, to embrace one another and together to worship Jesus Christ as the only Lord of History."
There was another
historic twist. The pope from Latin America ended by asking the flock in Texas for a spiritual'favor, an unthinkable request during decades of bitter tensions between established Catholic churches and the rising tide of Protestant - usually Pentecostal - believers in the Americas.
"I thank you profoundly for allowing me to speak the language of the heart,". said Pope Francis. "Please pray for me, because I need your prayers. ... Let us pray to the Lord that He unites us all. Come on, we are brothers. Let's give each other a spiritual hug and let God complete the work that he has begun. And this is a miracle. The miracle of unity has begun."
Copeland then took the stage, shouting, "Glory!
Glory! Glory! Come on, the man asked us to pray for him!"
Many in the crowd lifted their hands and began speaking in what Pentecostal Christians believe are heavenly, unknown tongues. Copeland
- a global televangelist
-proclaimed: "Father we answer his request.... We know not how to pray for him as we ought, other than to agree with him in his quest ... for the unity of the Body of Christ. We come together in the unity of our faith. Hallelujah!"
This dramatic scene was the result of relationships forged behind the scenes. The video was recorded during a Jan. 14 visit to Rome by Bishop Tony Palmer, a Pentecostal minister from England who is part of the independent' Cormmunion of Evangelical Episcopal Churches. He traveled to Argentina' five years ago to work with Catholic Charismatic Renewal leaders and also met Cardinal Jorge Mario Bergoglio - now Pope Francis: Their ongoing friendship led to the invitation to visit the Vatican. The pope's video, and its enthusiastic reception by Copeland and his flock, lit, up the Internet. The key was the contrast between the image of the Jesuit pope with a media-friendly flare for simple living and that of Copeland, an elder statesman of what critics call the "prosperity. Gospel."
Meanwhile, some Protestants worried about Palnier's challenge to the
crowd: "Brothers and sisters, Luther's protest is over. Is yours?" And some Catholics pondered the pope's statement: "It is sin that has separated us, all our sins.... It has been a long road of sins that we all shared in. Who is to blame? We all share the blame."
Both of these reactions miss the point, noted Marcel LeJeune, assistant director of campus ministry at the thriving St. Mary's Catholic Center at Texas A&M University. The goal of the pope's message was to demonstrate Christian unity where it could be demonstrated
- in prayer and encouragement - rather than doctrinal debates.
"This is what Christian unity looks like," LeJeune argued, writing at the Aggie Catholics website. "It doesn't ignore the differences that we have with our non-Catholic brothers and sisters. It isn't triumphalistic. It isn't us vs. them."
At the same time,
s eaking as a Catholic raised in Texas, LeJeune said it was stunning to see a flock of evangelical leaders openly praying for the pope, instead of, as was common in the past, "talking about Rome being the great whore of Babylon."
Catholics and conservative Protestants have to "find some middle ground between sitting in a circle singing 'Kumbaya' and sitting off by ourselves going on and on about our many differences," he said in a telephone interview. "We have to start seeing each other as brothers and sis' ters, rather than enemies, or we will just keep driving stakes into the hearts of people who are open ton becoming believers."
1975 Piper Cherokee sits on the tarmac.
Piper Cherokee donated to Baptist College of Florida
Special to the Floridan
Students who are part of the mission's aviation program at The Baptist College of Florida in Graceville will be thrilled to return in the fall and see the striking new addition to the school's training fleet! The second airplane now being used by missions aviation students was recently donated by Eddie Houk and his wife, Lois.
The airplane, an impeccable 1975 Piper Cherokee, had been used by the Houk family since 1990 until the decision was made to donate it for use in BCF's missions aviation program. According to Houk, the prayerful decision was made after being invited to visit Gracevfile and hearing about the exciting new aviation program offered at The Baptist College of Florida. The invitation
"l am totally thrilled over this significant gift to our Lord's work."
Thomas A. Kinchen,
planted a seed in the minds of the couple and with God's guidance and their desire to'pass on this blessing, the Houk's donated the airplane to be used for missions flight, training.,
SThe Bachelor of Arts in Missions with a Concentration in Missions' Aviation degree .is one of the newer and fastest growing degree programs offered at BCE The very generous " contribution made by Ed and Lois Houk significantly benefits the program providing a means to train and equip pilots to further the reach of the .gospel. "I am totally thrilled over this significant gift to our Lord's work," stated BCF Presi-
dent Thomas A. Kinchen. ."This plane, provided by this Godly couple, is truly a Great Commission tool for missions and evangelism."
"Our pastor, Pastor Gary Crawford, has preached many times to think about giving a gift or gifts that can make eternal differences," stated Houk regarding his hopes for the donated plane. "We pray ,this may be one!" Providing the plane for mission flight training has the potential to do just that, as it will be used in training students to use aviation as a means to get where they may not be able to go otherwise; spreading God's word and bringing Him glory along the way

Feds cap fines for not buying insurance
The Associated Press
MIAMI - Federal officials have capped the amount of money scofflaws will be forced to pay if they don't buy insurance this year at $2,448 per person and $12,240 for a family of five. The amount is equal to the national average annual premium for a bronze-level health plan. The penalty for the first year starts at $95 per adult or $47.50 per child under 18, and it can rise to as much as 1 percent of annual household income.
The latest figure limits what the government can charge people using the income computation for the fine, which is due when people file their 2014 taxes.
The figures, released late Thursday, are important because the White House has only provided theoretical caps in the past.
Conservative lawmakers and groups that are critical of the Affordable Care Act encouraged consumers to skip buying insurance, arguing it would be cheaper to pay a $95 penalty, but often failed to mention the 1 percent clause. The uninsured will owe 1/12th of the annual payment for each month they or their dependents don't have either coverage or an exemption, according to the IRS. A person making
$45,000 per year would owe $450 for the 2014 tax year.
The penalty for not buying insurance increases to $325 or 2 percent of income, whichever is higher, for 2015. Federal researchers predict that about 4 million people, 'including dependents, could he hit with fines by 2016. The Congressional Budget Office had previously projected 6 million wouldapay fines, but dropped the estimate because more people will be exempt from the law, partly due to changes in regulations.
More than 8 million people signed up for insurance under the Affordable Care Act, and many Americans already had insurance through their employers and were not affected by the fine. If someone is due a tax refund, the IRS can deduct the penalty from the refund.
Otherwise, the IRS will let. people know what's owed or hold back the amount of the penalty fee from future tax refunds, but there are no liens or criminal penalties for failing to pay. Some residents, including prison inmates, are exempt from the penalties, and others can file for hardship conditions. If people don't earn enough money to have
to file a federal tax form, they don't have to buy coverage.
The threshold for filing a federal tax return is $10,150.
Premium prices vary widely based on age, gender and ZIP code, so the premium for a bronze plan in South Florida could be much different from the cost of a bronze plan in Kansas.

2nd Fla. deputy gets prison in Ponzi case
FORT LAUDERDALE A second former Broward Sheriff's Office deputy has been sentenced to prison for falsely arresting a woman as part of a $1.2 billion Ponzi scheme operated bya disbarred lawyer. A federal judge on
Thursday sentenced.Jeff Poole to a year and a day behind bars for a civil rights conspiracy conviction. Poole had faced up to 10 years but got less because he cooperated with prosecutors. Court documents show Ponzi schemer Scott Rothstein used high-level contacts in the sheriff's office to have Poole arrest the exwife of one of Rothstein's friends on trumped-up drug charges. The friend wanted to use the arrest in a child custody battle. Former BSO Lt. David Benjamin got five years behind bars for ordering the arrest.
Rothstein is serving 50 years for the scam. I From vire report

Slaying of law professor is a seeming mystery
The Associated Press
TALLAHASSEE - Detectives say Florida State University law school professor Daniel Markel was shot in the head but won't say whether he was shot from the front or back. They say he was gunned down at his home in broad daylight - but won't say if he was found inside the house or outside. They released a photo of a vehicle of interest, but wouldn't confirm exactly where the car was seen or even the make and model.
But they have made one detail perfectly clear: Whoever did ,.it wanted Markel dead. Last Friday's shooting of the popular lawyer has stunned friends, colleagues and residents of his well-to-do community in Florida's state capital, who demanded to know whether Markel had surprised an armed burglar or robber. No, Police Chief Michael DeLeo said - this was a premeditated murder.
Tallahassee police spokesman David Northway released photos of a vehicle of interest SWednesday and asked for anyone with surveillance in the area to contact police. The car appears to be a silver or light green Toyota Prius, though police will not confirm that.
-CrimeStoppers has increased a reward for information leading to an arrest from $1,000 to $3,000.
Markel, 41, was born in Toronto, was the father of two boys and a 2001 graduate of Harvard Law School. He practicedwhite-collar criminal defense and civil litigation before joining the Florida
State law school as a faculty member in 2005. He was tenured in 2010.
Bob Jarvis, a Nova Southeastern University law professor, said there are numerous reasons police withhold crime details from the public, even when seeking tips. Prosecutors worry about affecting the jury pool, and police are always concerned with false confessions and copycat criminals, he said.
"It's a way to test anybody who's either making a confession, who's trying to pin the blame on somebody else," Jarvis said. "It's a truth-telling test.
"You don't want confusion. If there's something unique about the killer or the killer's M.O., you'd like to keep that under wraps."
Markel finalized a contentious divorce from his ex-wife, Wendi Adelson, in 2013. The two had equally split custody of sons Benjamin and Lincoln, but they had followup litigation over money settlements. At one point, Adelson, who also teaches law at Florida. State, hoped to move back to her hometown in South Florida.
"She's a basket case, she's totally, totally shocked over what happened," said Adelson's lawyer, Jimmy Judkins. "Gone from having children with two parents to children with one parent with no warning. .
"She's scared to death for her children.: She's scared to death for herself."
Judkins said Adelson has cooperated with police and has not been ,asked remain in the area.
Tamara Demko met Markel at Harvard Law
This photo taken on Feb.7,2006, and made available by Florida State University shows law school professor Daniel Markel. Markel was shot in the head at his home in Tallahassee on Friday.
School, and the two had been friends ever since. She saw him regularly in Tallahassee and created a Web page for the Dan Markel Memorial fund to raise money for his sons. The site collected more than $18,000 in the first day.
Demko sobbed as she remembered the way he gave everyone nicknames and how he doted on his sons. She described his love for academia and said he was devoted to his Jewish faith.
"My heart is just shattered," Demko said. "I just don't.know what I'm going to do without him in my life. He's been a part of it for so long." The family has also asked for donations to go to the Crohn's and Colitis Foundation of Canada, Canadian Magen David
Adom, the Shomrei Torah Synagogue or Harvard Hillel.
"He took joy in life and his friends," Demko said. "He loved sharing his life with all the people.that he. met along the way." David Wilkins has been a Harvard Law School professor since 1986 and remained in contact with Markel over the years. Markel's death has been an ongoing topic in the law community - where he was well-known amorig other scholars for his writings in blogs and scholarly publications, several focused on crime and punishment. "He loved people as much as he loved ideas," Wilkldns said. "He loved talking about ideas to people. I think that's what drew a lot of people to him."

"'The consumers who received government pledged to multiplesubsidyestimates me that original tax credit ,or disagree with their subamount. It's crazy'" sidy amount can appeal. SGovernment officials say The government hopes Close - and other con- to resolve most of the
appeals paperwork this summer. It's unclear how many people received or appealed varying subsidy amounts.
Still, Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services spokesman Aaron Albright said consumers "should feel confident that they received an accurate determination based on the information they provided in their application."
Federal health officials ruled on Close's appeal last month, giving her yet another subsidy estimate, which was within a few dollars of the one she is currently 'receiving, her attorney said. ' Subsidies are important to making premiums under the new health care law affordable. About 87' percent of the more than 8 million people who signed up for coverage under the law received subsidies, which are paiddirectly to the insurance company on behalf of individual consumers, according to, data from federal health officials. Consumers pay the' difference directly to the insurance company each month just as they do with private insurance. Dallas insurance agent Jo Ann Charron sd the different estimates her clients received varied as
much as $100 a month. "Some of them got more of a subsidy, some of them got less," she said. Since consumers aren't required to use the entire amount, Charron said she encouraged her clients to accept at least $50 less than the highest subsidy quoted to give them a financial cushion in case the government ultimately decided that the lower amount applies. . The differing subsidy calculations are part of a mountain of data conflicts affecting at least 2 million people who signed up for coverage in the new health insurance exchanges. Most of the discrepancies involve important details about income, citizenship and immigration status
- which affect eligibility and subsidies: Some supporters of the law fear low-income consumers will owe the government money because their subsidy was incorrect. Federal health officials have repeatedly stated that the IRS will have the final say, regardless of what figures were generated on healthcare. gov. The IRS 'can deduct' the amount from consumers' tax refund or tell consumers' they owe the government money. Or, conversely, consumers
could receive money back if they took too low of a subsidy.
The government says the varying subsidy amounts likely were generated several ways: As consumers struggled to navigate the, glitch-plagued healthcare. gov website, they often had to start rew applications and unknowingly might have entered slight differences in their income, ZIP code or number of dependents. In some cases, consumers completed an application and received a subsidy they thought was incorrect and then called the hotline or had a navigator or insurance agent fill out another application. The applications likely contained some small differences, which generated another subsidy figure. Many consumers were required to submit additional paperwork to complete their applications, including citizenship or tax information, and that additional information also could have generated a different subsidy amount.
In Roanoke, Virginia, insuranceagent Carol Taylor had seven clients who remain uninsured because of unresolved subsidy questions after federal officials asked them to sub-
mit additional documents to verify their income.. "They are just sitting there. They haven't picked (a plan) because they can't get a correct answer, and they'd rather wait until they get through the verification process to make sure they get the right amount," Taylor said. Although the enrollment deadline has passed, federal officials can grant consumers special status that would allow them to pick a plan now., About half of the two dozen consumers Taylor helped enroll in the marketplace had problems with eligibility results. She spent hours on hold with the federal government trying to resolve the issue for five clients and was told consumers should go with the lower subsidy amount to avoid having to repay any money later in case of an error. Delaware -insurance agent Nick Moriello's client was quoted an $87 subsidy from healthcare. gov and a roughly $30 subsidy from the federal government's hotline. In' the meantime, his client isn't buying a plan. "She said if I'm-only going to be eligible for the $30 credit, it's not going to be affordable for me so I'll wait," he said.

Arizona execution: Lawyer said inmate not in pain
The Associated Press
FLORENCE, Ariz. - As a condemned murderer gasped for more than 90 minutes in the death chamber, a judge convened an urgent hearing in which a state lawyer assured him that the inmate was comatose and not feeling any pain. A transcript of the emergency court hearing reveals the behind-thescenes drama as the execution of Joseph Rudolph Wood unfolded Wednesday. The hearing included a defense lawyer, an attorney for the state and the judge.
The nation's third execution in six months to go awry rekindled the debate over the death penalty and handed potentially new evidence to those building a case against lethal injection as cruel and unusual punishment.
Wood took nearly two hours to die, and the execution lasted so long that his lawyers had time to file an emergency appeal while it was ongoing. The courts learned of his death during the discussions. "He has been gasping and snorting for more than an hour," Wood's lawyers wrote in a legal filing demanding that the courts stop it. 'tHe is still alive."
In a call with Judge Neil V. Wake, the participants discussed Wood's brain activity, heart rate and whether he was feeling pain. They talked about whether it would do any good to stop the execution while it was so far along. Jeffrey A. Zick, a lawyer for the state, spoke to the
Arizona Department of Corrections director on the phone and was given assurances from medical staff at the prison that Wood was not in any pain. Zick also said the governor's office was notified of the situation. "The director indicated that in consultation with the IVteam leader, who is a medical doctor, Mr. Wood is apparently comatose; that he cannot change course at his point," Zick told the judge. Zick said at one point, a second dose of drugs was given, but he did not provide specifics. "I am told that Mr. Wood is effectively brain dead and that this is the type of reaction that one gets if they were taken off of life support. The brain stem is working but there's no brain activity," he said, according to the transcript. The judge then asked: "Do you have the leads connected to determine his brain state?" The lawyer said he didn't think so.
"Well if there are not monitors connected with him, if it's just a visual observation, that is very concerning as not being adequate," the judge said. Zick later informed the judge that Wood had died. Arizona Attorney Gen-. eral Tom Homne's office said Wood, 55, was pronounced dead, at 3:49 p.m., one hour and 57 minutes after the execution started.
It is the third prolonged execution this year in the U.S., including one in Ohio .in which an inmate gasped in similar fashion for nearly 30 minutes. An
Oklahoma inmate died of a heart attack in April, minutes after prison officials halted his execution because the drugs weren't being administered properly.
Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer said later that she was ordering a full review of the state's execution process, saying she's concerned by hovw long it took for the administered drug protocol to kill Wood.
An Associated Press reporter who witnessed the execution saw Wood start gasping shortly after a sedative and a pain killer were injected into his veins. He gasped more than 600 times over the next hour and a half.

hydromorphone - that 'were used in the Ohio execution earlier this year. A different drug combination was used in the Oklahoma case.
States have refused to re,veal details such as which pharmacies are supplying lethal injection drugs and who is administering them out of concerns that the drugmakers could be harassed.
Wood filed several appeals that were denied by the U.S. Supreme Court. Wood argued he and the public have a right to know details ,about the state's method for lethal injections, the qualifications of the executioner and who makes the drugs. Such demands for greater transparency have become a legal tactic in death penalty cases.
Deborah 'Denno, pro-
fessor of criminal law and criminal procedure at Fordham Law School, said it may be up to Legislatures or the public to bring any change. "I think every time one of these botches happens, it leads to questioning the death penalty even more," she said.
Attorney general's spokeswoman Stephanie Grisham, who witnessed the execution, said Wood "went to sleep, and looked to be snoring." "This was my first execution, and I was surprised by how peaceful it was,"/ Grisham said in an, email "There was absolutely'no snorting or gasping for air."
Wood was convicted of fatally shooting Dietz and her father, 55-year-old Gene Dietz, at their 'auto repair shop in Tucson.

NRavens RB Rice receives 2-game suspension
Ravens RB Rice receives 2-game suspension
The Associated Press
OWINGS MILLS, Md. - Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice received a two-game suspension from the NFL on Thursday following his offseason arrest for domestic violence. Rice will miss the season opener against AFC North champion Cincinnati on Sept. 7 and the Sept. 11 game on Thursday night against the Pittsburgh Steelers. The six-year veteran was arrested following a Feb. 15 altercation in Atlantic City, New Jersey, in which he allegedly struck then-fiancee, Janay Palmer. The 27-year-old Rice has been accepted into a diversion program, which upon completion could lead to the charges being expunged.
Rice met with NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell last month after joining the diversion program. Goodell ultimately decided to suspend the running back for two games without pay and fine him an additional game check "for conduct detrimental to the NFL in violation of the league's Personal Conduct Policy."
Despite the court's decision not to impose criminal punishment, "the .Commissioner determined, as he advised Rice, that the conduct was incompatible with NFL policies and warranted disciplinary action." In a letter to Rice, Goodell
THEASSOCIATED PRESS Baltimore's Ray Rice runs a drill during a training camp practice Thursday at the team's practice facility in Owings Mills, Md
wrote: "As you acknowledged during our meeting, your conduct was unquestionably inconsistent with league polices and the standard of behavior required of everyone who is part of the NFL. The league is an entity that depends on integrity and in the confidence of the public and we simply cannot tolerate conduct that endangers others or reflects negatively on our game. This is particularly true with respect to domestic violence and other forms of violence against
Rice's suspension will begin on Aug. 30. He will be eligible for reinstatement Sept. 12 after the Pittsburgh game. Rice may participate in all aspects of training can'p and preseason games. "It is disappointing that I will not be with my teammates for the first.two games of the season, but that's my fault," Rice said in a statement issued by the Ravens. "As I said earlier, I failed in.many ways. But, Janay and I have learned from this. We have
become better as a couple and as parents. I am better because of everything we have experienced since that night. The counseling has helped tremendously." SRice is the team's career leader in total scrimmage yards and ranks behind only Jamal Lewis in total yards rushing. Bernard Pierce is expected to start for Rice in Baltimore's first two games.
Ravens general manager Ozzie Newsome said in a statement: "We appreciate the thorough
process the league office used to evaluate the incident with Ray Rice. The time the Commissioner spent with Ray and Janay is typical of the extra steps the NFL takes when making decisions regarding discipline issues. While not having Ray for the first two games is significant to our team, we respect the league's decision and believe it is fair." He added, "We also respect the efforts Ray has made to become the best partner and father he can be. That night was not typical of the Ray Rice we know and respect. We believe that he will not let that one night define who he is, and he is determined to make sure something like this never happens again." Rice's teammates were not stunned by the news of the suspension.
"You knew something was going to happen," wide receiver Torrey Smith said. "I'll be glad when those two games are up." Coach John Harbaugh said, "It's part of the process. There are consequences when you make a mistake; , we'll move forward."
Rice participated Thursday in Baltimore's first full-squad practice. Before that session began, the Ravens lost cornerback Aaron Ross for the season with a torn Achilles tendon, a mishap that occurred during his conditioning test.

Panthers say QB Newton, DE Hardy ready to practice
The Associated Press
CHARLOTTE,N.C. -Pro Bowlers Cam Newton and Greg Hardy will be ready to practice when the Carolina Panthers take the field for the start of training camp Friday night.
The same can't be said of often-injured running back Jonathan Stewart.Panthers general manager Dave Gettleman said Newton has been cleared medically following ankle surgery on March 19 and is expected to participate in all drills - which comes as great news for coach Ron Rivera, who Iis returning .from a European vacaion.
"Cam will participate full go and we will monitor just to make sure," Rivera said. "He will go through treatments, to make sure, in terms of maintenance; but he is starting day one.and will be onthe field." Newton was not made available for interviews Thursday.
Rivera said Newton recently worked with some of Carolina's receivers away from team facilities and came away feeling good about his surgicallyrepaired ankle.
"I'm pretty excited about having him back on the field full time With those guys," Rivera said.
Gettlemard said Hardy, convicted on two counts of domestic violence last week, will not face any suspension from the Panthers at this time.
He said the team will follow the league's stance and let the legal process play out.
"We constantly talk to our players about putting themselves in a position to succeed both on the field and even more importantly in life, so what has happened with Greg is very concerning and very disappointing," Gettleman said in the team's first public comments on Hardy since his conviction July 16. "These are very serious allegations," the GM said. 'At the same time, we also respect the fact that Greg has appealed the decision and is entitled to a jury trial. We have been in touch with the league and we're in the position that they have a personal conduct policy, which we are a part of. At the same time, we have to respect the legal process. That's basically where we're at." Hardy appealed the conviction last week after a judge sentenced him to a 60-day suspended jail sentence and 18. months probation for assault on a female and communicating threats.
Suspended WR Blackmon arrested
The Associated Press
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - The Jacksonville Jaguars have no plans to part ways with troubled receiver Justin Blackmon.
Owner Shad Khan made it clear Thursday that' Blackmon will remain on the roster despite his latest arrest.
"We want to keep himn as a player,"' Khah said following a charity kickoff luncheon at EverBank Stadium. "He's not part of the team, obviously. But I think it's ver important for him to get the help. I think that's the most important thing. ... I think it's good for him and good for us. We want him to get the help and really beat this.",
A former standout at Oklahoma State, Blackmon was arrested Wednesday in the Oklahoma City suburb of Edmond on a complaint of marijuana possession. Police said they noticed his sedan go around stopped traffic in an attempt to get into a turn lane.
Police spokeswoman Jenny Monroe said an officer detected a "heavy
smell ofmarijuana" coming from the
2007 Chrysler Blackmon was'driving, and that Blackmon admitted he had smoked "a blunt" while driving and had another in
Blackmon was ar-, Blackmon . rested and booked
into the Edmond jail where he posted $657 bond Thursday morning.
"It's unfortunate news," Jaguars coach Gus Bradley said. "We have not had much contact with him. Right now, all I can say is I'm just praying that he can get the help that he needs."
Blackmon was suspended without pay indefinitely last November. for repeated violations of the NFL's substance-abuse policy. The Jaguars have been reluctant to cut the fifth overall pick in the 2012 draft. Being suspended indefinitely essentially pauses an NFL player's contract, so Blackmon still owes the Jaguars two and a half years of service ifhe gets reinstated.
"I know our policy right now, I believe, is it's not putting us in a difficult situation havinghim still be part of our organization in this capacity," Bradley said. "It's really hard by not having conversations with him. I really don't know how he's doing, where he's at. And then when we receive news like this, it creates more discussion. So I'm sure those will be conversation we'll have (about) the direction we'll go." Teammates seemed hardly surprised by Blackmon's latest transgression.
"It's just a difficult situation," quarterback Chad Henne said. "It's kind of ongoing. All we can do is pray that he finds away to get on the right track and save his life." Added linebacker Paul Posluszny: "This is no longer a football issue. As his teammates, you hope he can do everything he can to get his life squared away. We feel for him and we obviously want the best for him because he's a good kid at heart. We want the best for him. We hope that he can come out of this. "He's a good guy. He's fighting

Dear Annie: I have two siblings with whom I have shared most everything. Now that my dad is slipping mentally and physically, we have decided to sell his home and move him into a memory care facility.
My two siblings simply ignored my recommendation that we give the listing to our real estate agent. Annie, within the past 15 years, my wife and I have sold three homes and purchased two through our very capable Realtor, while my siblings have not been in the housing market for 20 years. Instead, my brother wants his newly licensed Realtor friend to sell the house, even though she has never sold one. My sister wants her sonin-law, who recently graduated college and works at his mother's real estate firm, to handle the sale. I recognize that there are individual interests here. But the additional problem
Never base your declarer play or defense on unrealistic assumptions, as this could lead to a decrease in your.trick-taking. In this deal, for example, how should South, play in three no-trump after West leads a fourth-highest spade five? South is not wildly enthusiastic about opening one no-trump with two weak suits, but he has no realistic choice. If he opens one diamond and North responds one spade, what would South do then? Yes, here North would make a limit raise in diamonds. Then South could rebid three hearts to show his stopper in that suit, North would bid three spades, and South would sign off in three no-trump. That sequence, though, gives the defenders much more information.
South starts with seven top tricks: one spade, four hearts, one diamond and one club. Given the spade lead, declarer does not have time to play on diamonds. Realistically, he would surely lose at least four spades and one diamond. Instead, he must hope that the club finesse is working. And there isn't a moment to lose. After winning the first or second trick with dummy's spade ace, South must take a club finesse. When it wins, he returns to the dummy with a diamond, takes a second club finesse and claims.
Finally, note that five diamonds is worse than three no-trump, because it relies on a good diamond position and the club finesse.
is which facility my father goes to. Two are close to all of us. But my brother and sister want to move Dad into an independent living facility we visited three years ago that does not include an assisted living option and is farther away.
I do not want a confrontation, just a fair shake for our beloved father, but Iam afraid I have no input. Any suggestions?

Two Texas football players charged with sex assault
The Associated Press
AUSTIN, Texas - Two University of Texas football players were arrested and charged Thursday with felony sexual assault after a female student said she was raped in a campus dorm room last month. Wide receivers Kendall Sanders and Montrel Meander were later released on personal recognizance bonds. According to an arrest affidavit, Sanders and Meander texted each other during earlier interviews with police to "get their story straight" and Sanders
also faces a charge of improper photography tied to the alleged assault on June 21.
The arrests created the first program crisis for first-year Longhorns coach Charlie Strong, who will welcome his team to preseason training camp in two weeks.
Strong, who enjoyed a warm reception at the Big 12 media days earlier this week and spent several weeks last spring touring the state to build fan support, immediately suspenrided both players.
- The sexual assault charg-.
es carry prison terms of two to 20 years. "It's a shame that a mere allegation can affect a young man's life to the extent this will," said Sanders' attorney Brian Roark. "Kendall Sanders is innocent, though, and eventually, that will be proven."

Stroman's no-hit bid ended when Shane Victorino blooped a single to center to lead off the seventh. One out later, Victorino was erased on Mike Napoli's doubleplay grounder. Stroman (6-2), only allowed two other baserunners on walks and struck out seven in seven innings. The rookie righthander s 5-1 with an 1.54 ERA in seven home starts.

"We just wanted to get
stronger because we were out-manned in the spring jamboree both quarters,"
he said. "I wanted to focus on getting stronger to prevent that from happening again. We've definitely gotten a lot stronger these
past two months."
On top of replacing their
leading rusher and their best defender, the Hornets are also breaking in a new quarterback for the second straight season, with junior Justin Lipford taking over for Justin Klotz and earning good marks from his coach for his improvement
since the spring.
"With Justin, it's been
night and day from the spring. He has a lot better grasp of the offense," Addison said. "We'll be able to throw more stuff at him this year as far as the passing game goes. He dan

three tournaments this summer, while also playing the usual summer baseball schedule, with Conipton estimating that the squad has around 30 games under its belt going into the

If Chipley's pitchers can
throw strikes and make its opponents put the ball in play, Compton said he believes his group will have a
chance to go far.
"I think our strength right
now is that defensively we put a good group out there That can make the routine play," he said. "I think We're going to battle at the

'Obviously we want to run the ball, but we do want to be a little bit more balanced this year to prevent people. from putting eight ori nine guys in the box all the time."
The Hornets have made gains from a strength and skill perspective in the summer; now, the. coach said the team must learn to apply'what they've learned in the off-season on a consistent basis.
"It's just about execution. The guys have got the base offense down. Now it's just getting to where you can execute it every single play," Addison said. "The guys are, excited. They're pumped up and ready to start. I couldn't ask for a better group ofseniors, especially in my first year."

Chipley also has the added advantage of playing in familiar surroundings in front of home fans, which Compton saidwas no small thing for his players.
"Our guys play better at. home, for sure," he said. "We're not going to be staying at motels; we'll be here doing what we always do. It's going to be a neat little thing. I think playing at home will help us. Just for the pride and the amount of work that has been put into get this thing here;, I think we'll get a lot of support. If we can get deep in the tournament, anything can happen because I know the community would rally around us."
The first games will be played at 9 a.m., with East Polk facing Monroe La., and Halifax/South Boston, Va., taking on Paris, Tex. At noon, Gastorn, S.C., will play Bladen County, N.C., and Auburn, Gd., will play Pine Belt, Miss.; the other 3 p.m. game will be Ozark vs. East Central, La.
Saturday's Home Run Derby will start at 7 p.m. and is free to the public, though donations will be accepted for the Dixie Scholarship Fund.
