PARTNERS FOR PETS
YARD SALE FUNDRAISER
KRISTIE CLOUD /FLORDAN
The Partners for Pets animal shelter in Marianna provides a safe place for animals like these to live until they are adopted. The shelter will be hosting a yard sale fundraiser Aug. 9 from 7 a.m. to 1 p.m. For more information, call 482-4570.
No-kill animal shelter plans yard sale, pancake breakfast
MARIANNA - Bargain hunters, take note: On Aug. 9, the Partners for Pets animal shelter will host a yard sale fundraiser featuring donated items of all stripes, ready for the picking. Proceeds from the event will benefit the no-kill rescue facility and help care for the some 85 dogs and cats in need of permanent homes right now. From the food, housing and medical attention for the animals, to salaries for its four paid, part-time staffers, the Phil Rotolo Memorial Animal Shelter in Marianna has a variety of expenses. And it's periodic fundraisers like next Saturday's that keep the kibble flowing. With roughly 45 dogs and 40 cats currently housed there, the animal shelter is running well above capacity, according to Debbie O'Quinn, shelter manager.
"Summer is usually slow, but this
whole year has been slow (for adoptions)," she said.
On Aug. 9, O'Quinn, fellow staff members and volunteers will be up bright and early at 4011 Maintenance Drive, opening the shelter for an event they hope will bring in much-needed funds to help keep the not-for-profit shelter going, and perhaps send a few newly adopted pets home to families of their own. And for any shoppers who think they might need a lttle fuel to make it through a long morning of yard sale searching, bring $3 and grab a plate of pancakes and a cup of juice or coffee. Staffers will be firing up the griddle as the yard sale kicks off. Donations for the yard sale are certainly welcome. Just about anything of value can be dropped at the center, 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday-Friday or 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday Adoption options
If you've given it serious thought and decided it's time to adopt a pet,
there's still the matter of associated fees to consider.
For dogs, Partners for Pets charges a $65 adoption fee, plus a refundable spay/neuter deposit ($40 for females, $25 for males). If cost is an issue, O'Quinn says to ask about older dogs that have been at the shelter for a long time, dogs needed for therapeutic purposes (by doctor's prescription) or dogs to be adopted by returning veterans
- there may be a deal to be had. As for cats, they are priced to move. Due to the large number on hand, there's a much lower adoption fee of $15, plus a refundable $15 spay/neuter deposit. Another cost-saver comes around in October, when the county gets a limited number of $40 vouchers to assist with the cost of spaying or neutering newly adopted animals. For more information about the upcoming event or adopting a pet, call the shelter at 482-4570.

County agrees to set up new committee
BY DEBORAH BUCKHALTER
Speaking on behalf of the local NAACP chapter,
president of that organization asked last week that
Commissioners set up a new advisory committee to work on ideas about how the government can assist in creating more and better low-incoming housing options, more support of local businesses and in addressing other issues of concern. Jackson County Commission Chairman Chuck Lockey indicated that the county would work toward putting such a group together.
Elmore Bryant, who served as president of the local NAACP for many years, said he and the current president, the Rev. Ron Mizer, would like to see a committee made up of representatives from such organizations as
Habitat for Humanity and the Rainbowhousingorganization that Bryant leads, along with many other groups that deal with other issues that the NAACP leadership believes need to be addressed. For instance, he said, the commiissioners should put someone on the committee representing the county department that deals with housing improvement and/or homepurchase assistance. Bryant thinks the county needs to consider incentives for local businesses~ looking to expand or perhaps some that want to set up shop. He indicated that he felt that it was time for small, local job creators to get a share of the tax breaks that have, in the past, mainly gone to larger businesses.
A committee of many is needed to bring a number of ideas to the table on these and other issues of concern, he said, adding that he felt that the county could benefit from outside input on everything from road improvement plans to senior services.

Time is a pricwvess commodity
The question "where
did the time go?"
is a familiar one to quite a few of us. Some folks can remember details of days gone by as if they were yesterday, while others either can't remember, or choose to forget things that took place in their past. As youngsters, especially during our teenage years, most of us couldn't wait to get old enough to make our own decisions, have our own money and spend it any way we would want to. Boy, if we only knew then what we found out a few years later.
We have written before of how we hope young people will treasure their days of youth. Time is an interesting thing. When we enter the workforce, become married, buy a
vehicle for transportation, began paying rent
or a mortgage and become responsible for paying our own way through life, paydays often can seem far in the distance.
But when our time comes for a vacation or we get a few days off, time seems to have wings. Many people become so caught up in the routines of life that they become complacent. The last thing on their minds is how valuable each day of life is and how important it is to fil1 our days with something pleasant and positive. If we wake up each morning with unpleasant thoughts and
worry on our minds, we will be candidates for hypertension, heart disease and other illnesses. This kind of stress can lead to "crutches" such as alcohol, illegal drugs and the abuse of prescription drugs, and the increased eating of junk foods and other unhealthy habits that can take time off our lives.
Life is too short to continuously be unhappy When we look around and find ourselves among the senior and elderly citizens of the world, and we're wise enough to realize the value of time, it will feel as though time is moving even faster than before. Though we spend our early years learning in school and about life, spending time enjoying clean fun and excitement
should definitely be on the agenda.
In our later years, we should spend less time complaining and thinking about what we should have done with our lives in the past, and more time on being thankful for a long life. During this time it would be smart to make wisdom, faith, and God your closest friends. Time is invaluable, and the ways we choose to use it will be the most important decisions we can make in this life.

Tuition hikes, the 529 plan and Rascal Flatts
"My wish for you ... is that this life becomes All that you want it to."
written by Steve Robson and Jeffrey Steele and recorded
by Rascal Flatts
The cost of educational expenses, which includes
college tuition, increased by over 2 percent last year. Nevada just enacted a 17 percent university tuition increase over the next four years. Let's hope last winter's freeze applies to tuition hikes at Florida's public universities. College is affordable for fewer American families than ever before. Ironically, a college education is, more than ever, widely viewed as a prerequisite to decent employment in today's tight job market. How much does college cost these days? Say last year you paid $15,000 in tuition, plus housing, a meal plan, activity fees, and spending money, and your child's total college
expenses were $25,000. And let's say you currentiy have
a senior and
a 2 percent
Margaret increase, MVcDowell now your
are $51,000 instead of $50,000.
Many parents and grandparents utilize 529 education savings plans , to fund college expend *1s. Investors fund the account and their dollars grow tax-free, and stay that way as long as distributions are for qualified college expenses. Any form of savings is beneficial, but in the case of 529s, sometimes colley~e parents and grandpa~ts may be better off simply investing their discretionary income in a taxable brokerage account in their own name.
Simply put, the fees
associated with many 529 plans sometimes offset the benefits of utilizing them. While you forego tax deferred growth by utilizing a taxable brokerage account, you have a much wider selection of investment options without any restrictions on how the funds can be spent. Say little Johnny Angel becomes little Johnny Devil. You own the account and can use the funds for your own retirement needs or anything else, for that matter. Or say your child is an exceptional student and receives several scholarships. You can provide financial assistance as you see fit, perhaps send them on an interim trip to Europe or help them buy a car.
Locking in tuition rates with a state-sponsored, prepaid tuition program is usually a money saver. Some 20 states currently offer such plans, usually under a 529 plan
umbrella. Florida's official website details four of these prepaid tuition options, which include two 2-year plans and two 4-year plans. Start a prepaid tuition plan while your child is a toddler, and you'll save significant dollars by the time they start college. College always costs so much more than we think it will. Children still need all the financial support they normally accept from you, in addition to their college expenses: health and medical insurance, doctor visits, car payments, car insurance, clothes and more.

Back to school
Many stores facilitate the purchase of school supplies by providing staff to help parents find everything they need
Let-the race begin!
And they're off: the race to buy school supplies has begun. That's right, the time has come to head out to the stores, with your list at the ready, in search of school supplies, clothing, backpacks, and lunch boxes. After all, you want your children to have everything they need for the school year and for their teacher's class list. Here are a few tips to help you stay calm during all the tumult.
First of all, carefully examine the list of supplies requested by the school. These detailed lists can be big orders to fill, so start early, take your time, and do it right. Some stores organize their school supply section based on the lists supplied by the schools, while others offer personalized help in finding items on the list.
*To save yourself some money, you could check the flyers of the various stores before
*leaving home. You could also buy some items, such as pencils, pads of paper, and exer*cise books, in larger quantities. That way you'll have everything at hand if your children run out during the school year-you won't have to go shopping yet again and pay thee full price. Keep in mind that selecting products of a lesser quality could cause you a few: headaches if they break or wear out too quickly. What you should be looking for is the
*best quality/price ratio.
:Lastly, include your children in this shopping trip if they express the desire to accompany:
*you, but be sure to set certain limits before you leave home. Let them know if there is
*a budget for extras, and if not, remind them that they are meant to be helpers rather

Beware of the
perhaps as old as "the oldest profession," swindling takes many forms and evolves over time with societal changes, tecnological innovations and the growing sophistication of both the grift and the mark. Perhaps only those living under a rock have missed the Nigerian prince scam, in which an email arrives telling the recipient that they've been contacted to assist a Nigerian prince or someone similar in getting large sums of money out of their country. Most people see right through the nonsense, but apparently it must have worked at least once.
Then there's the one in which the email appears to come from an actual frend, who relates a story about some misfortune they've encountered overseas and asks for financial help to get out of the bind. That, too, is easy to dismantle with a phone call to the friend in question, who is usually in the midst of their usual routine and complete unaware of the dire email. II Such despicable activity is cyclical, and the Jackson County Sheriffs Office is warning residents again of a scam that ran through the community about three months ago. It targets a vulnerable group that might not be as wary as they should be. They call it the grandparent scam, in which a target gets a call from someone saying they are "your favorite grandchild," and telling of some circumstance that requires the grandparent's financial involvement. The call may seem genuine if the swindler has done some homework to get personal details of the family
Law enforcement recommends that anyone receiving such a call not send money. They should not give out any personal information during an unsolicited call, and should check in with whomever the swindler claims to be to ensure they are not, in fact, endangered. And in every case, residents are urged to call the Jack-. son County Sheriffs Office if they suspect a scam. The phone number is 482-9624.
Gay marriage rhetoric
E ult crdahateigwno hrdyMonroe County circuit judge struck down Floridas
same-sex marriage ban.
Judge Luis M. Garcias ruling will be appealed by Floridas attorney general, and applies only to Monroe County, not the entire state. Nevertheless, the judge'sdecision provides a powerful and clear defense of individual rights. It was a victory of U.S. constitutional principles over a Florida restriction that voters approved in 2008. "This court is aware that the majority of voters oppose same-sex marriage," Garcias decision states, "but it is our countrys proud history to protect the rights of the individual, the rights of the unpopular and the rights of the powerless, even at the cost of offeding the majority."
Rulings are awaited in similar cases elsewhere in Florida. Meanwhile, Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi will appeal the Garcia decision, saying that in light of the wave of pending cases around the nation, "finality on this constitutional issue must come from the U.S. Supreme Court." Bondi is obligated to "defend the state in civil litigation cases," as her website notes. We recognize the need to fie an appeal, since Amendment 2 reflected the will of the voters. But we urge the state to avoid an overly political, divisive defense. Already the rhetoric is overheating. The executive director of the Christian Family Coalition was quoted by the Tampa Bay Times as saying that Garcias ruling was "a judicial lynching of nearly 8 million Florida Voters." We.disagree. he judge saw Amendment 2 for what it is: a discriminatory affront to basic civil rights

Wom--en voters likely power players in fall elecions
Today's question: Would we be better governed if more
women held political office? Yes, say nearly two in three Americans, a Gallup poll reported July 21.
The question was, "Do you think the country would be governed better or worse if more women were in political office?" Sity-three percent of Americans said better - a jump from 57 percent in 1995 and 2000. The trend bodes well for women candidates in this fall's congressional elections.
While the number of women serving in Congress has been inching up - to a record 79 in the 435-member House and 20 in the 100-member Senate - women are still just 18.5 percentof the Congress. In the House, 60 women are Democrats and 19 are Republicans. In the Senate, 16 women are Democrats and four are Republicans. Gallup didn't ask why people thought women would do better, but perhaps a Grateful Dead song has the answer: "That's right, the women are smarter." In any case, women vote. Women were the majority of voters in 2012 and largely decided to keep President Barack Obama in the White House and continue Democratic control of the Senate, according to analyses of exit polls by the Center for Ameitican Women in Politics at Rutgers.
Fifty-five percent of women voted for Obama, compared with 52 percent of men. Women's votes also elected seven Senate Democrats: Tammy Baldwin in Wisconsin, Sherrod Brown in Ohio, Bob Casey in Pennsylvania, Joe Donnelly in Indiana, Tim Kane in Virginia, Jon Tester in Montana and Elizabeth Warren in Massachusetts, the
Women don't always.vote for female candidates, of course. In the Senate race in Connecticut, men split their votes evenly between Democrat Chris Murphy and Republican Linda McMahon, while "women showed a clear and decisive preference for Murphy" who won, the center said. This time around, with continued Democratic control of the Senate increasingly in doubt, Democrats are pinning their hopes on Michelle Nunn to flip the red-state Georgia seat held by retiring Republican Sen. Saxby Chambliss. Democrat Nunn, daughter of popular former Sen. Sam Nunn, is running against Republican businessman David Perdue, former CEO of Reebok and other firms. Perdue beat Rep. Jack Kingston, a 22-year House' veteran, July 22 in a GOP runoff election. If the Georgia race is pivotal and close, we could wait to learn which party will control the Senate. If neither candidate gets more than 50 percent of the vote Nov. 4, there wil be arunoff Dec. 2. Nunn is one of six women candidates running for open seats in five states. West Virginia is poised to make state history by electing its first woman senator. The election is betweenDemocrat Natalie Tennant and Republi-
c an Shelley Moore Capito., Four states have never sent a woman to the House or Senate: Delaware, Iowa, Mississippi and Vermont. But that could change. In Iowa, tea party favorite Joni Ernst, a Republican, is in a tight race with Democrat Bruce Braley Two of the most vulnerable Senate incumbents are Democratic women, Kay Hagan of North Carolina and Mary Landrieu of Louisiana. Political prognosticators rate both races tossups. In another high-proffle race, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell is working to keep his seat representing Kentucky from Democratic challenger Alison Lundergan Grimes, Kentucky's secretary of state.
Whether a general inclination to support more women in office translates into votes depends on how individual candidates sell themselves and on the local dynamnics of each race. In 2012, Rep. Michelle Bachmann, R-Minn., dropped her presidential bid after eking out just 5 percent of the Iowa caucus vote. She's retiring from the House but said this week she might run for president again in 2016.
"Like with anything else, practice makes perfect," she said in an interview with Real Clear Politics, adding that she had participated in 15 presidential debates. No, unlike learning the piano, for instare, practice doesn't make perfect in politics. On that men and women voters agree. Still, if you're looking for clues about. the elections this fall, it makes sense to watch the women.

In a world of sectarian Violence, what can be done?
L ast week, the Islamic State
I of Iraq and Sria -the
JLJxtremist movement now occupying large swaths of territory in the region - forced the last Christians out of the Iraqi city of Mosul.
Images of desecrated churches, looted homes and ruined lives now serve as the obituary for one of the world's oldest Christian communities.
If the world barely noticed, it's not surprising. The fate of Christians in Mosul is only one of many competing news stories of religious and ethnic violence across the giobe, from northern Africa to the Middle East to the Ukraine.
Tragically people in many parts of the world are drowning in rivers of bloodshed in the name of one ethnic or religious group against another. Even where religious communities have peacefully co-existed for years - Christians and Muslims in Africa, for example - the lid is off and the knives are out. The causes of the current worldwide epidemic in sectarian
Inside the First Amendment
violence are complex, with each region plagued by a volatile mix of religious, ethnic, economic and political differences with deep historical roots. "Religion" is often the trigger
- or the excuse - for power struggles that have less to do with faith and more to do with national or tribal identify and political power. Consider Myanmar (Burma) where the Buddhism of the majority is so defined by national identity that it spawns hatred for the Rohingya Muslim minority - in clear contradiction to traditional Buddhist teachings. Muslims are condemnned by extremist Buddhist monks as strangers in their own land,
aliens who must be attacked and driven out.
As a result, Rohingya Muslims
- who claim to be indigenous to Myanmar - are one of the most persecuted minorities in the world. Over the past two years, more than 100,000 Rohingyas have been forced to flee Myanmar and many thousands more have been put in camps with no access to basic services such as health care, clean water or sanitation.
Similar perversions of religion fuel "religious" conflicts in many* other places, including Nigeria where terrorists kidnap children and murder innocents "in the name of Islamn" and the Central African Republic where "Christian" militias butcher Muslims "in the name of Christ." What makes many of these conflicts so intractable is, in a word, indoctrination. Young people in far too many places are taught to hate and fear the "other," passing ancient divisions rooted in religious and ethnic identities from one generation to the next.
From textbooks in Saudi Arabia that disparage Jews to training camps of terror in Yemen, young minds are prepared to continue the battle - often in the name of one religion over another. In the short term, of course, the only recourse is to combat sectarian conflicts with some combination of political, diplomatic, humanitarian and military action - a juggling act of mind-boggling complexity. But for the long term, the best answer to schools of hate and violence are schools of respect and understanding - schools where students learn how to engage people of different religions and beliefs with civility and respect. One avenue to creating such schools is Face to Faith, an education program offered free to schools by the Tony Blair Faith Foundation. Now active in more than 30 countries - including nearly 200 public and private schools in the Uni*ited States - Face to Faith uses videoconferencing and secure online community to connect students directly with their peers
in clas srooms across the world. (Disclosure: I serve as advisor to Face to Faith in the U.S.) Launched just five years ago, Face to Faith has already engaged more than 60,000 students in civil dialogues that range from exchanges about personal values and beliefs to discussions of global issues of shared concern. The aim is not only to educate young people about religions and cultures, but also to inspire them to work together for the common good. (www.faceto faithus.org) Schools implementing Face to Faith are on the front lines in the ongoing struggle for the hearts and minds of the next generation. When students are able to build bridges of trust and understanding, they're better prepared to resist voices of hate and violence.
Face to Faith won't stop the rivers of blood overnight. But it's a very good start.

Teenscancer story mirrors'Faultin Our Stars'
The Associated Press
BROOKSVILLE- Like a lot of teen girls, Fath Brown has read "The Fault in Our Stars," the popular novel about two teens who fall in love at a cancer support group.
But Faith needed more courage than most to make it to the end and learn the eventual fate of Gus, who lost a leg to osteosarcoma.
it's the same cancer Faith, 14, learned she had last year.
Osteosarcoma is a rare, solid tumor cancer of the bone that targets adolescents, striking primarily duringgrowth spurts. Wheni the Brooksville girl complained last year of paln in her right knee, her parents figured it was because she fell while out playing. But the pain didn't go away, so they took her for an Xray, then an MRIf. "That's when they found it," said Kathy Brown, 47, Faith's mother. "There was a mass in her knee that wasn't bulging out. It was just 3 to 4 centimeters in the growth plate in her knee. We were lucky, we caught it really early."
Faith had to go through nine months of chemotherapy But unlike the fictional Gus, she avoided amputation. In June 2013, surgeons at All Children's Hospital Johns Hopkins Medicine in St. Petersburg removed part of her right thigh bone, shin bone and the knee joint. In their place: titanium rods and an artificial knee. The fact that Faith's cancer was caught early was key to her getting this limb-sparing surgery. Doctors must remove the entire tumor as well as enough healthy tissue around it to offer a margin of safety. Yet they must preserve as many tendons, nerves and blood vessels as possible so the llmb functions well. If the tumor is too large, amputation can be the only choice. Today, Kathy and David Brown's family photo collection includes a shot of the doctor demonstrating the implant before the

She can no longer jump on a trampoline or play contact sports. But she swims just about every day and hopes to try out for the swim team when she enters high school this fall.
"If you didn't know her story and saw her walking down the road, you wouldn't know she had limb salvage surgery," her mothl er said. "She is doing great." Doctors will watch her growth to keep her legs even. She also must be monitored to make sure the cancer has not returned. Faith's oncologist, Dr. Damon Reed, directs Moffitt Cancer Center's adolescent and young adult cancer program. He said osteosarcoma is rare - about 400 new cases are diagnosed in the United States each year. Moffitt sees about a dozen new cases a year.
As recently as the 1970s treatment for osteosarcoma almost always involved amputation
- one famous patient back then was Sen. Edward Kennedy's son Ted, who today practices law in NewYork.
In those days, only 20 percent of patients survived. By the early 1980s, more doctors were giving chemotherapy along with surgery and five-year survival
Artifacts found from Union ship that sank in Fla.
The Associated Press
JACKSONVILLE - It took years of determination and* divers willing to dig and feel around in the murky St. Johns River before the lead chess pieces, polished dominoes and handmade flutes could be liberated from a Civil War shipwreck and provide a look into the past. Keith Holland and some of the divers who helped recover the cargo of The Maple Leaf, which was sunk by a mine on the St. Johns in April 1864, discussed the excavation at the Mandarin Museum and Historical Society recently.
The Maple Leaf was a side-wheel Union steamboat used during the war to, ferry troops and equipment. Four crew members were killed iAl the sinking.
Gabriele Dempsey, museum organizer of exhibits, said. the historical society has displayed artifacts from the Maple Leaf before, but this is the first time the divers have 'been part of the exhibit. She said what interests her about the exhibit is the glimpse into a soldier's life it provides.
"These are all personal belongings of three regiments of civil war soldiers," she said. Derek Morse, a visitor at the museum, was there with his wife and in-laws. He said he's very interested in history.

'He researched historic shipwrecks on the St. Johns and settled on the Maple Leaf after he became interested in diving. At the time, Holland was a practicing dentist in Jacksonville and would spend weekends hunting for the Maple Leaf.
He used old maps and government photos of the area to pinpoint where
he thought the shipwreck could be. Then he found it, but it was 24 feet uinderwater and buried about 7 to 8 feet in mud. I was excited about finding the shipwreck," he said. I was gravely disappointed it was beyond my reach, but I did not give up. I just realized I was going to have to work a little harder."
For the next several years an army of volunteers dug down into the mud until it was possible to remove some of the cargo. Holland said his team has removed about one ton of material, but that represents less than 0.5 percent of what could be inside the Maple Leaf.

surged to 70 percent. But Reed, noting that there haven't been new treatments for osteosarcoma since the 1980s, believes science can do better. With support from Tampabased Pediatric Cancer Foundation, Reed is looking into new drug combinations to improve the survival rate and make treatments less toxic to patients. The foundation, started by two women whose children survived cancer, focuses on cancers that don't get a lot of research attention. Chief among them is osteosarcoma.
Reed and his team have identified a group of more than 50 drugs that they will test in different combinations in lab animals. If they are successful, then they will seek FDA approval for human clinical trials. All the drugs are approved to fight other forms of cancer and are known to be safe in humans, but the research process will be challenging.
"It's going to be hard and it will take a lot of work to get there," Reed said, "but that's no reason not to try."
It took Faith a few days to tackle the last three, tear-jerking chapters of The Fault in Our Stars. Personal as the story is to her, she wasn't about to miss the movie version.
"I knew I would have so much in common with it," said Faith, who starts ninth grade this year. "I liked it."
Her mother and father hope the book and film ralse awareness of osteosarcoma. Kathy Brown wants parents to be aware of the symptoms, though it is a rare condition, and recognize the importance of taking action if a child complains of persistent leg or joint paln.
"It may not be what we used to call growing pains," she sald. And if you're going to see the movie, she recommends you bring a box of tissues. "It was very real for us," she sald. "We cried through the whole movie."

MIAMI - A Florida judge on Friday overturned the state's ban on same-sex marriage in a ruling that applies to Miami-Dade County, agreeing with a judge in another county who made a similar ruling last week. Still, no marriage licenses will be issued for gay couples in either county any time soon to allow for appeals.
The ruling by Circuit Judge Sarah Zabel mirrors the decision made earlier by Monroe County Circuit Judge Luis Garcia. Both found the constitutional amendment approved by Florida voters in 2008 discriminates against gay people. They said it violates their right to equal protection under the law guaranteed by the US. Constitution's 14th Amendment. "Preventing couples from marrying solely on the basis of their sexual orientation serves no governmental interest," Zabel wrote. "It serves only to hurt, to discriminate, to deprive same-sex couples and their families of equal dignity, to label and treat them as second-class citizens, and to deem them unworthy of participation in one of the fundamental institutions of our society." The effect of Garcias ruling was put on hold when Republican Attorney General Pam Bondi filed notice of appeal. Zabel also stayed the effect of her ruling indefinitely to allow time for appeals, which could take months, and Bondi promptly followed up Friday by filing an appeal notice in the Miami-Dade case. The county of 2.6 million people is in the top 10 in population in the U.S. Both judges were appointed by former Republican Gov. Jeb Bush and have
The legal battleground will next shift to the Miami-based 3rd District Court of Appeal for both cases, and most likely after that to the state Supreme Court. Nevertheless, Friday's ruling was cause for celebration for gay couples across the Miami area. "It means so much for a court to recognize our family and say that we must be treated equally," said Catherina Pareto, one of the plaintiffs in the case. "We love this state and want nothing more than to be treated as, equal citizens who contribute to the community and help make Florida an even better place for everyone who lives here." Same-sex ban supporters argue that the referendum vote should be respected and that Florida has sole authority to define marriage in the state. The Florida amendment defined marriage as a union between one man and one woman.
Gay marriage proponents have won more than 20 legal decisions around the cou ntry since the U.S. Supreme Court last year struck down a key part of the federal Defense of Marriage Act.. Those rulings remain in various stages of appeal. Many legal experts say the U.S. Supreme Court may ultimately have to decide the question for all states. Bondi said in a statement about the Monroe County case that "with many similar cases pending throughout the entire country, finality on this constitutional issue must come from the U.S. Supreme Court." Nineteen states and the District of Columbia allow gay people to marry. Republican Gov. Rick Scott has said he supports -the amendment but opposes dis-
crimination. His top Democratic challenger, former Gov. Charlie Crist, supports efforts to overturn it.
Florida has long been a gay rights battleground. In the 1970s; singer and orange juice spokeswoman Anita Bryant successfully campaigned to overturn a Dade County ordinance banning discrimination against gays. The county commission reinstated those protections two decades later. In 1977, Florida became the only state prohibiting all gay people from adopting childreni. A state court judge threw out that law in 2008, finding "no rational basis" for that ban, and two years later, the state decided not to appeal, making gay adoption legal. Gay marriage opponents said the rulings overturning the same-sex marriage ban disenfranchise nearly five million voters - the 62 percent who approved it nearly six years ago. Repealing the amendment would require at least 60 percent support. "With one stokeb4 a pen, a mere trial judge has attempted to overthrow an act of direct democracy by five million Floridians who defined marriage as the union of one man and one woman,"1 said John Stemberger, president Florida Family Policy Council, which pushed for passage of the amendment. The cities of Orlando, Miami Beach and Key Biscayne filed legal papers supporting the gay couples' quest to have the marriage ban ruled unconstitutional. A separate lawsuit is pending in Tallahassee federal court seeking to both overturn Florida's gay marriage ban and force the state to recognize same-sex marriages performed in other states.
GO"P officials enjoy sugar industry ranch trips
The Associated Press
TAMPA - Top Florida Republican officials including the governor have enjoyed hunting trips to South Texas' historic King Ranch thanks to the Sunshine State's sugar industry, but they arent talking about them.
The Tampa Bay Times reported Saturday that an analysis of records shows the trips were financed all or in part by the Florida sugar industry The lack of disclosure could enable officials and sugar lobbyists to avoid scrutiny about discussions on a host of important issues such as state agriculture "policy water pollution and Evergades protection. Under a 2006 ban, lawmakers can't accept free meals, drinks or trips from donors, but a legal loophole allows parties and political committees to do so. They can then pass on these gifts without detailing who gives or receives them - as long as the donations are considered to have a "campaign purpose."
The Times analysis shows that in the last three years, U.S. Sugar paid nearly $100,000 to the Republican Party of Florida for at least 20 weekend trip&. The* destinations were not made public, but they all occurred within days of more than a dozen Florida politicians registering for Texas hunting licenses.
Hepworth says the party follows the letter of the law but declined to discuss the trips. The tension over just what gifts lawmakers can receive goes back decades in Florida. Leon County state attorney Willie Meggs prosecuted a 1992 case against two dozen Florida lawmakers accused of accepting free trips from corporate lobbyists. He
said the King Ranch trips may not be, illegal, but they raisequestions bout. the lack of transparency The trips to King Ranch appear to have begun back in 2011, when U.S. Sugar began leasing 30,000 acres and built a hunting lodge there. King Ranch also is the largest member of the Sugar Cane Growers Cooperative of Florid 'a. Both Gov. Rick Scott and Agriculture .Secretary Adam Putnam are among those who visited the retreat, but the trips don't show up on their official schedules. Asked about his travels there, Scott on Friday released a statement saying he visited the retreat in February of 2013 "in support of his political fundraising efforts." A campaign aide said the governor paid for his own hunting license and flight and that "costs were covered by appropriate political entities and properly reported as required by law."
State travel records show Florida Department of Law Enforcement agents who guard Scott accompanied him, but the state was not charged for their stay. FDLE officials could not explain to the Times why the state did not pay, despite the fact it normally picks up the tab for the governor's security detail even on personal trips. Putnam said the trips raised money for the state GOP and referred questions to the party. Florida Republican Party campaign documents do not list King Ranch on any documents related to fumdraising or donations. Sugar industry officials declined to comment. Lawmakers who confirmed they visited the ranch include Former House Speaker Rep. Dean Cannon, R-Winter Park. Cannon said he paid his way but declined to provide more details.
Dead trees are seen in a tree island Friday in the Florida Everglades near Miami. A fungus that follows an invasive beetle from Asia is killing trees across the Everglades, and there's no way to stop the blight from spreading. Since first detected west of Miami 2011, laurel wilt has killed swamp bay trees scattered across 330,000 acres of the Everglades, a roughly 2 million-acre system of state and federal lands.
Deadly fungus spreads in
the Everglades, kIinII~g trees
The Associated Press
MIAMI - A fungus carried by an invasive beetle from southeast Asia is felling trees across the Everglades, and experts have not found a way to stop the blight from spreading.
Then there's a bigger problem - the damage may be leaving Florida's fragile wetlands open to even more of an incursion from exotic plants threatening to choke the unique Everglades and undermine billions of dollars' worth of restoration projects. Since first detected on the edge of Miami's western suburbs in 2011, laurel wilt has killed swamp bay trees scattered across 330,000 acres of the Everglades, a roughly 2 million-acre system that includes Everglades National Park. The fungus is spread by the tiny redbay ambrosia beetle, which likely arrived in this country in a shipment of wood packing material. The same fungus also plagues commercial
avocado trees and redbay trees elsewhere in Florida and the Southeast. While the state has been working with the avocado industry to mitigate the damage, there's been no way to contain it in swamp bay or redbay trees. Experts say the best defense would be stopping invasive pests from crossing U.S. borders in the first place. Hundreds of millions of redhay trees have succumbed across six states since 2002, said Jason Smith, an expert in forest pathology at the University of Florida. This summer, Smith will survey the national park for living swamp bay trees to collect samples in the hopes of propagating new trees resistant to the pathogen from their cuttings or seeds. The South Florida Water Management District, the state agency that oversees Everglades restoration, also plans to ramp up its monitoring and maintenance of the tree islands where swamp bays are found. The damage is eas-
ily spotted from the air and from the highway that cuts across the Everglades. Gray skeletons of swamp bays that died in the pathogen's first wave and newly dead trees that have turned diry and brown mar the dark green tree islands that dot the vast expanse of pale sawgrass.
Each tree island is losing up to half its tree canopy, said LeRoy Rodgers, the water management district's lead invasive species biologist. That's worrisome because invasive plants may work their way into those open spaces - like weeds in a gardens but worse. Old world climbing fern, melaleuca, Australian pine and Brazilian pepper are the invaders that particularly worry state and federal caretakers of the Everglades. Like the invasive Burmese pythons that are blamed for dramatic drops in the populations of native mammals in the wetlands, the plants have established a home in South Florida's sunny and wet climate.

Arizona execution renews debate over methods
The Associated Press
SAN FRANCISCO - A third execution by lethal injection has gone awry in six months, renewing debate over 'whether there is a foolproof way for the government to humanely kill condemned criminals, and whether it's even worth looking for one.
Death penalty opponents say any killng is an unnecessarily cruel punishment. Proponents may favor the most humane execution method possible, but many reject the idea that a few minutes or hours of suffering by a criminal who caused great suffering to others should send government back to the drawing board.
Thirty years ago, states and the federal government gave little thought to the condemned inmates' comfort. Most executioners used electric chairs, but death row inmates also were hanged, put to death in the gas chamber or faced a firing squad. Mistakes occurred. Inmates appeared to suffer in the gas chamber. Electric chairs caught fire or malfunctioned and didn't kill. So a growing number of law enforcement officials, legislators and advocates began searching for a foolproof, constitutional method for executions.
In 1977, an Oklahoma medical director appeared to have found a solution. Dr. Jay Chapman came up with a three-drug combination that promised to put the inmate to sleep before painlessly and quickly drifting off to death. Chapman's formula replaced the state's use of the electric chair. Now, calls are mounting to scrap lethal injection, even by those who support capital punishment like Chief Judge Alex Kozinski of the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals. He believes a completely humane method of execution isn't possible and favors firing squads. "If we as a society cannot
stomach the splatter from an execution carried out by a firing squad, then we shouldn't be carrying out executions at all," Kozinsi wrote Monday in support of carrying out Wood's execution.
Chapman's three-drug combination became the default execution method for the federal government and in every state - some three dozen - that has capital punishment. Lethal injection was embraced as the best possible way to execute and the apparent painless and swift death it caused were seen as attributes to counter lawsuits and protests that claimed capital punishment was cruel and unusual.
Since then, more than 1,200 inmates have been executed by lethal injection. The U.S. Supreme Court in 2008 ruled the method constitutional. "Execution by lethal injection should be a humane way to die," said Arthur Caplan, head of medical ethics at NewYork University's Langone Medical Center. "But it isn't."
Caplan said that there hasn't been any reported trouble with physicians who in some states can legally help people commit suicide. "So we know it can be done painlessly," he said.
But medical ethicists and professional licensing boards for doctors and nurses forbid their par-

ticipation in executions, which are carried out by lay workers who sometimes struggle with administering a lethal injection. Further, pharmaceutical companies are refusing to ship prisons the three drugs necessary to mimic Chapman's mixture. That has caused prison officials to scramble to find alternative drugs that may not kill as quickly. Anesthesiology experts say they're not surprised that the two drugs Arizona used Wednesday took so long to kill Joseph Rudolph Wood. So the lawsuits and protests persist. So do the problems.
On Wednesday, Wood gasped for air for 90 minutes and took about two hours to die after receiving an injection. An Ohio inmate gasped in similar fashion for nearly 30 minutes mn January. 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. Previously, non-medical personnel had trouble delivering the lethal injection or had trouble finding veins on longtime drug abusers. When doctors were called in to assist, the American Medical Association ob-
jected that it was unethical for physicians to be directly involved in executions. After questions over the amount of time it took for Wood to die, Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer ordered a review of the state's execution protocol. Governors in Ohio and Oklahoma have ordered similar reviews. Erwin Chemnerinsky, dean of the University of California, Irvine law school and death penalty opponent, said he believes lethal injection is here to stay because the U.S. Supreme Court ruled it constitutional in 2008 - and because the public would never stand for firing squads.

Indans closer to completing '14 class
KRISTIE CLOUD/ FLORIDAN Ty Baker attempts a Iayup during a Chipola Indians' men's basketball practice Wednesday.
BY DUSTIN KENT
The Chipola Indians moved closer to completing their 2014 recruiting class this week with the addition of DePaul transfer Dejuan Marrero, with just three spots remaining to be filled before the start of next season.
Marrero, a 6-foot-S forward, was the third transfer to be added by Chipola coach Patrick Blake this off-season, joining JUCO guard transfers Tra-Deon Hollins and KJ Scott.
Blake said that the addition of the former Blue Demon player gives the Indians a level of physicality one would expect from someone who has competed in the Big East Conference.
'Any time you can get a D-I transfer from the Big East, it's a great get," he said. "He has great maturity and from a
physical standpoint is ready to step in from day one and contribute right away. He can play three positions and be a high level defender and rebounder- for US 1
Hollins and Scott are former high school teammates at Omaha Central where they won four consecutive state championships.
At 6-foot-3 each, the two will look to form a dynamic guard tandem that Blake said will provide leadership and versatility in the backcourt.
"They just bring a maturity and toughness to our team and set a tone with how we work and what it takes to win," he said. "They're going to be great leaders for this team. They're two great players who both have the ability to play point and they'll play well together."

Players from the Marianna Angels team sell raffle tickets in Marianna on Friday to raise money for their trip to Myrtle Beach, S.C. for the Dixie Youth World Series.
Marianna Angels hope for more in second trip to World Series
BY DUSTIN KENT
After a dominant run through the district and state tournaments, the Marianna Angels All-Stars will get a chance to add to their trophy collection next week in North Myrtle Beach, S.C., where they will compete in the Dixie Youth Angels World Series.
Marianna alsowent to the World Series last year in Petal, Miss., going 2-2 and fin-
ishing fifth after being eliminated on the tournament's third day by Louisiana 4- 1. The All-Stars will get another shot at the title starting Aug. 4 when they take on Alabama, with Marianna coach Jim Williams saying that his team is primed and ready to make another go at a state championship.
"The girls are extremely excited and anxious to go back again," he said. "When you play (recreation) ball and get chosen for the All-Star team, this is the final goal.
This is the top of the ladder and what you climb for if you're in Dixie Youth softball. This is the top rung."~ Four players return from last year's World Series team: Ashlyn Wierman, Sydney Powell, Angel Curry and Jadyn Stevens, and Williams said that they have been using their experience in Petal to help prepare their younger teammates for what they'll face in North Myrtle Beach.

Spurrier: Gamecocks 'dose' to being title team
The Associated Press
BLYTHEWOOD, S.C. - South Carolina's Steve Spurrier always considered the Gamecocks were,a long-term project, even if some on the outside of the program saw it was just a quick lay-over for the national championship coach. I didn't plan on being here two or three years and try and get one of those glamour jobs," he said Thursday. I wanted to see if we could build this up to something special." Spurrner's getting closer each year and he enters his 10th season - only two shy of his national championship tenure
at Florida - with expectations higher than ever after a third consecutive 11 -2 season. Last week, the Gamecocks were picked to win the Southeastern Conference Eastern Division and give Spurrier a shot at the title he covets most
- an SEC championship. "We're close. We're very close,". Spurrner said. "Somebody told me there's only three teams in America to finish in the top 10 the last three years and we're one of them."
The Gamecocks finished a program-best fourth in the country in last year's final

Dead turtles and short britches
The day was hot (of
course) and~ my
hike was otherwise uneventful until I came upon a rather strange sight. Namely, nearly two dozen terrapin skeletons scattered about between my trail and the lake bank.
TRtfle murder? No. When one thins a turtle population, he generally shoots them in the water, where they sink from sight and become food for aquatic scavengers. Juvenile cruelty? Not likely. Impish little sociopaths who pull wings off flies and legs off crickets have neither the skill nor the gumption to catch and mutilate freeswimming adult terrapins. Mass reptilian suicide? I think not.
Intrigued, I examined the cadavers and eventually hit upon the cause of death. The deceased, all of them, likely died from poor timing back in early spring.
I'm serious. It happens to many aquatic turtles every year. There comes one of those false-spring warm-ups that hangs on for 3 or 4 days and entices the terrapins from hibernation in shallow-water mud or bankside debris. Inevitably, just as the turtles are getting accustomed to warmer weather, along comes winter again. Many of the hapless critters just don't possess the intelligence to burrow in again before the temperature drops. Naturally, being cold-blooded, they die.
Many humans are just like that, always wanting to rush spring and summer. I observed that phenomenon this year starting in late January.
One brief wisp of balmy air is all it takes to bring human "terrapins" out of "hibernation." It's fortunate that most of us have enough brain power to go back inside or at least get less nude when it becomes chilly again. Or maybe not so fortunate. Sometimes I think our species might benefit from the removal of a certain number of these impatient heat seekers. No, wait. That's a bit harsh, as is spaying or neutering. At the very least, though, somebody ought to tell them January is too early to wear short britches and, when short-britches weather does arrive, many need to leave their shorts in the cedar chest. Some folks simply have no business baring their legs, season notwithstanding. I'd like to tell some people the shorts I see them wearing at lakeside, aboard boats, and on the trails do not make them look like the outdoor-catalog models that motivated them to purchase the shorts in the first place.
With the exceptions of thunderstorms and 100 percent humidity, few things ruin an otherwise pleasant warm-weather outing like the sight of some people clad in short pants. If I want to admire a pair of legs that resemble two stalks of dog fennel
I'll watch the herons and egrets. IffI wish to look at elephantine faunal appendages I'll study those of the gopher tortoise. Bipedal organisms with legs fitting either of those descriptions oughta wear long britches. Period.
Cletus Monroe, who admittedly has prettier legs than mine and could, under most circumstances, do justice to a nice pair of 7-pocket cargo shorts, kills the aesthetic effect by continuing to wear those thigh-high Khakis that were popular 30 years ago. I could say those shorts, plus his 1980s mustache, make him look like an over-the-hill porn star with a beer gut, but I won't. He'll think it's a compliment.
My friend LiI, who runs trotlines and sells fishbait down in central Florida, says there's nothing uglier than a 70-year- old Yankee in Bermudas and knee socks. She oughta know. She certainly sees enough of them. Her husband Jack, a 64-year-old Southerner who favors a similar ensemble, also inspires Lil's commentary.
"Lord help that man," ,she says. "When God was passing' out knees, Jack thought he said 'trees' and asked for two knotty. ones!"
The list goes on and on and a question, no doubt, has arisen. Does the critical and opinionated Bob Kornegay ever don a pair of shorts these days?
Not on your life. I fear i's caustic wit and the derisive laughter of my fishing buddies. Besides that, I'm deathly afraid of mirrors.
Bass are fair and may be caught along the grass lines in Spring Creek. Use dark-colored floating worms and topwater stickbaits. Any crankbait that imitates shad or breamn is good in the creeks. Jig- and-pig combos and Carolina-rig craws may take some largemouths from the river ledges, where stump lines are the best spots.
Also fish deep-running crankbaits near secondary points.
Crappie fishing is slow. Early and late in the day, fish live minnows at depths of 5 to 15 feet. Hybrids are good late in the afternoon on crankbaits and spoons fished over humps and off-thechannel sandbars. Breamn fishing is fair and catfish are fairly active deep over hard bottoms.
Bass fishing is fair to good. Use Texas-rig worms in dark color patterns on main-lake points and in

"They're telling the girls that they're going to face some real good players up there, but we're just as good as they are and we just need to focus on the things we've done all year long," he said. "I know they're going to be excited to be there and all that, but they have to stay calm and under control when they're there and handle it that way so they don't get so nervous that they don't play the kind of ball they're capable of playing."
Those nerves were evident at the start of last year's World Series when Marianna lost its opener 7-0 to Georgia before bouncing back with wins over Mississippi and North Carolina.
The team would certainly like to avoid stubbing its toe early this time around, but with an even younger Iteam than went last year,
the creeks. Up the creeks, wood structure near grass beds is a good bet. Spinnerbaits may work in these areas early and late in the day
A few anglers have taken some early-morning fish from the creeks with white buzz baits. Late in the day is the best overall time to fish.
Crappies are fair on the deeper creek ledges and can be caught on jigging spoons from the transient brush found just off the main river channel. Fish live minnows in the creeks directly over the deepest part of the channel. Night fishing is a good option. Hybrids are biting fairly well late in the afternoons and at night on the southern end.
Bream are active, but the fish remain small. Catfish are good, especially at night.
Lake Andrews/ Chattahoochee River
Look for bass to take topwater baits near wood structure and over shallow
Williams said he knows it will be a tough challenge for his players to avoid being overwhelmed by the moment.
"They got excited last year, but they were nervous and you could tell in that first game. After that, they focused in and didn't get caught up in all the excitement about being there," he said. "They were there to play ball and they knew they had to start playing, and when they did that, we did quite well.
"These girls who have been there before have been a steadying influence and are trying to make sure these girls enjoy it, but also that they stay on an even keel and focus on playing ball."
Much like last year's team, this Marianna group dominated in both district and state and carries a lot of confidence and momentum into the World Series.
But as the 2013 found out, it will take an even
sandbars early and late in the day. Just at daybreak, try a white buzz bait with a chartreuse trailer in similar locations. The creeks are still not producing many bass, but main-river ledges can give up'some good individual fish. Try jig-and-pig combos with a lot of chartreuse in the color pattern. Hybrid fishing is poor upriver, but some nice fish have been taken far downstream near Lake Seminole. Spoons are the best bait choice. Bream fishing is fair. Drift-fish crickets or worms along high banks and bluff walls. Bluegills are the most active bream species.
Crappies are slow and catfish are fair up and down the river. The best catfishing is in the tailwaters at present.

higher level of play to make it all the way to the finish line in North Myrtle Beach, as the margin for error grows smaller for every team there.
"The girls' have
dominated and done a real good job and that's great, but they have to keep playing hard," Williams said. "You can't go up there because you were dominant in the two tournaments we've played so
-far and just assume it will be that way up there. We have to realize that we won all these things and we're state champions and that's great, but the teams we'll face up there went through the same process that we did and earned their right to be there.
You have to go up there thinking that any team you play will be just as good as you are. It doesn't take but one little mistake here or there to change a game completely. One miscue leads to a run or two being scored and that can be the difference."
Sooners ready to move past Sugar Bowl victory
The Associated Press
NORMAN, Okla. - Oklahoma got a lot of attention with its upset victory over Alabama in the Sugar Bowl. As good as it was for the program, the Sooners are looking forward. The Big 12 favorites begin practice Aug. 5 in preparation for the Aug. 30 opener against Louisiana Tech.
"They've been getting stroked for a long time about Alabama," co-offensive coordinator Jay Norvell said Thursday "That's ancient history as far as the football world is concerned. It's time to turn the page and move on and see what this 2014 team can do."
The challenge for Oklahoma will be keeping a team that has been praised all offseason hungry.

Chipola has also added a pair of bigtime 6-foot-7 athletes in Georgia's Greg King and New Jersey native Junior Saintel, with King picking Chipola despite being a qualifier with offers from Tulsa and Southern Miss.
King fills a big need on the interior for the Indians after the graduation of AllPanhandle Conference big man Cinmeon Bowers, while Saintel could be asked to replicate some of the skills of the departed J~maar McKay. "(King) is a high-level athlete and a high-level rebounder. He just brings a toughness down low that we really need," Blake said. "(Saintel) is really athletic, great in transition, and provides another great scoring threat in our backcourt."I Blake has also brought in a pair of international players in French point guard Mehdy Ngouama and 6-foot-lO Gambian center Ali Smnear, who adds even more length to a frontcourt that includes a 7-footer in returning redshirt center Legend Robertin, who the coach said has been major strides since getting on campus.

AP Top 25. That has some fans dreaming of a spot in this year's new, four-team College Football Playoffs. Not that there aren't hurdles. The Gamecocks lost NFL No. 1 draft pick Jadeveon Clowney and the quarterback Spurnier keeps calling the best in South Carolina history in Connor Shaw. Also gone from last year are defensive tackle Kelcy Quarles, the sacks leader; receiver Bruce Ellington, the team's receptions leader; and both starting cornerbacks in Jimmy Legree and Victor Hampton. Spurrier said the players his staff's brought in behind the headliners in the past few years are good players, just without experience. That showed at SEC Media Days last week when despite being preseason divisional favorites, the Gamecocks didn't have an all-SEC first-team player.

Oklahoma holds up the Sugar Bowl trophy after defeating Alabama in the Sugar Bowl in New Orleans on Jan. 3.
Montgomery said. "We haven't done anything this year. We still have to prove ourselves. We're going to have guys that didn't play much last year that are going to play. We've got guys that played a bunch of ball last year. We've still got to go out and play the man in front of us."
said. "He gives us great size and is one of our more athletic guys, even at that size, and he's a real defensive presence at the rim. He's developing and getting better every day. He can really help us from a defensive standpoint." Former Malone Tigers standpoint Ty Baker, who averaged 3.3 points and 2.2 rebounds in limited action as a freshman, is also among the returners who Blake has praised for his work this off-season to elevate his play.
"Ty has made a tremendous jump from his freshman to sophomore year. He's really grown and matured as a young man and as a player," he said. "I think he's poised to have a really good sophomore year for us." Blake Said he plans on rounding out the class with one more guard, one more post player, and then whoever is the best player available at that point. The Indians have had eight total players on campus since the end of June and the coach said he has been very happy with what he has seen so far. "I'm really excited with the group we have. They've been a joy to coach these past few weeks," he said. "They're great kids with great work ethic, and I'm really excited about the team we'll be able to put on the floor this fall."
Spurrner pointed to linebacker Skal Moore, the team's top tackler last year as a freshman.
"Maybe they haven't played enough to be all-conference, I don't know," Spurrier said. "Obviously, we think they can play very well and are ready to show it this coming year.''
Spurrier surprised many in college football whenhe returned to the game at South Carolina in November 2004 after two poor NFL seasons at Washington. But Spurnier, who'll turn 70 next April, said when took the job he came with the goal of setting the Gamecocks' record for coaching victories and figured he'd need about eight or nine years to reach the necessary 65 victories. The wins came slowly at first -35 in his first five seasons
- until Spurnier's program started landing players like receiver Alshon Jeffery, 'cornerback Stephon Gilmore, running back Marcus Lattimore and Clowney, all four who are on NFL rosters.

Dear Annie: Several months ago, my husband and I moved to the Ozarks after faling in love with the area. We left behind a lot of dear friends and the life we had known for 25 years, but we are quite happy here.
The only sadness is my brother. He and his wife still live in the town we left. When I told him we were moving out of state, he said we shouldn't because of our health issues. Yet when I had two major surgeries, he never once bothered to drive the five minutes to the hospital or come by my house afterward. He is retired and sits around the house watching TV He never offered to help us pack for the move or assist in driving our truck, and I really wanted him to see our new home.
In the nine months we have lived here, my brother has not called one time. I phoned on his birthday and for holidays. Each time, he said he was "thinking of calling." My husband and I have no children. My brother is my only family. He told me a few years ago that he is depressed. I am sure it began when his best friend died. He did get medication from his doctor, but it obviously did little good.
I am hurt that my big brother has written me off. We never got together much when we lived in the same town, but at least he would call once in a while and come by for coffee on occasion. I have decided that the next move is up to him. My husband has been supportive, but even he does not know how badly I am hurting. He doesn't have any siblings. I know of nothing that will make my brother call me, so I can only sit here and hope. Any suggestions?
- HURTING LITTLE SIS IN BRANSON, MO.
Dear Hurting: You are expecting a great deal from a brother who apparently suffers from depression and has never been particularly good at staying in touch.
Albert Einstein said, "A theory can be proved by experiment; but no path leads from experiment to the birth of a theory."
At the bridge table, leads are very important. And not only do you have to lead the right suit, but you must also be careful which card you select. In this deal, South is in four hearts. West leads the diamond eight. How should East plan the defense? North's two-no-trump response was the Jacoby Forcing Raise, guaranteeing at least four-card heart support and gameforcing values. South rebid four hearts to show a minimum opening bid and no singleton or void.
West led a diamond because that suit was stronger than his clubs. East knew that his partner's lead was top of nothing. And it couldn't be a singleton, because that would have given South five diamonds and a singleton or void, which he had denied in the auction. Als6, now'dummy had diamond winners on which South could discard losers.
East realized that his side had to take, in order, one diamond, one spade and two clubs. But how to get West to win his spade trick and shift to a club? At trick two, East carefully led the spade nine, the high card in principle denying an honor in the suit. West g~t the message and defeated the contract. If East had led the spade two, West
He may believe you abandoned him by moving away. In most sibling relationships, one sibling is better at maintaining ties. It's your choice whether to continue to initiate contact, but we hope you will. We think he misses you, even though he doesn't show it the way you'd like.
Dear Annie: "Concerned Old Man in West Hills" doesn't understand why it is rude to tell his niece that she is fat. I have a different perspective. If the niece was a slim girl up to a point and then started to pack on the pounds, she may have been sexually abused. The weight is an unconscious attempt to appear less attractive. I was abused when I was 7 years old. I gained weight and wore shape-blurring clothing because I wanted to be invisible. My family members labeled me lazy and said I didn't care about my appearance. Every bite of food came with scrutiny. from tablemates. I knew I was an embarrassment to my family. If you see this sort of transformation in a close friend or family member, be kind. If you can do so in a gentle way, ask us why we seem to be sad and withdrawn.
- GRANDMA WHOSE
INNER CHILD IS SHATTERED Dear Grandma: Thank you for mentioning this possibility. Many abused children, both male and female, react by "hiding" themselves in this way. We hope family and friends will pay attention to these changes and see what's really going on.
Dear Annie: Your response to "Bob in North Carolina" hit the target dead center. It's a shame that so many of the young women with whom I work do not see themselves in this light. They flaunt their sexuality instead of their know-how in the work environment. What a shame people still think like this.
- PROUD OF WHO 1 AM, NOT WHAT I SHOW
would have probably put in a lower spade to force out dummy's king, or won with his ace and returned the suit. Remember, a low lead from length expresses an interest in trying to win tricks in that suit.

Blake Griffin withdraws from US national team
LOS ANGELES - Blake Griffin has withdrawn from playing for the U.S. national basketball team this summer. The Los Angeles Clippers star was one of 19 players selected to the roster from which the World Cup team will be chosen. Griffin said Thursday that he wants to dedicate all his energy on improving and preparing for the upcoming NBA season. Griffin joins Oklahoma City guard Russell Westbrook in not participating. Westbrook dropped out to
rest previous knee injuries. The Americans begin training camp Monday in Las Vegas, a month before the World Cup of Basketball opens in Spain.
Hornets sign rookie F Von leb, veteran
- The Hornets have announced they've signed rookie forward Noah Vonleh and re-signed veteran point guard Jannero Pargo. Terms of the deals were
not released Friday. Vonleh, the ninth overall pick in this years draft, played one season at Indiana before turning pro. The 6-foot- 10Vonleh was named Big Ten Freshman of the Year after averaging 11.3 points, nine rebounds and 1.4 blocks in 26.5 minutes per game for the Hoosiers. Hornets coach Steve Clifford recently said he considers Vonleh "a couple of years away" from being a real contributor. Pargo originally joined Charlotte in March.

Consider the following things when putting together your emergency food supplies:
9 Store at least a three-day supply of non-perishable food. " Choose foods your family will eat. " Remember any special dietary needs. " Avoid foods that will make you thirsty. " Choose salt-free crackers, whole grain cereals and canned foods with high liquid content.
Following a disaster, there may be power outages that could last for several days. Stock canned foods, dry mixes an d other staples that do not require refrigeration, cooking, water or special preparation. Be sure to include a manual can opener and eating utensils.
SUGGESTED EMERGENCY FOOD SUPPLIES
The following items are suggested when selecting emergency food supplies. You may already have many of these on hand. 0 Ready-to-eat canned meats, fruits, vegetables and a can opener
* Protein or fruit bars
" Dry cereal or granola " Peanut butter
" Dried fruit
" Canned juices
" Non-perishable pasteurized milk " High energy foods " Vitamins
" Food for infants
" Comfort/stress foods Flood, fire, national disaster or the loss of power from high winds, snow or ice could jeopardize the safety of your food. Knowing what to do before and after an emergency can help you reduce your risk of illness and minimize the amount of food that may be lost due to spoilage.
FOOD SAFETY AND SANITATION
Power outages can occur at any time of the year and it may take from a few hours to several days for electricity to be restored to residential areas. Without electricity or a cold source, food stored in refrigerators and freezers can become unsafe. Bacteria in food
grow rapidly at temperatures between 40 and 140 T, and if these foods are consumed, people can become very sick. Do:
" Keep food in covered containers. " Keep cooking and eating utensils clean. " Keep garbage in closed containers and dispose outside, burying garbage if necessary.
* Keep your hands clean by washing them frequently with soap and water that has been boiled or disinfected.
* Discard any food that has come into contact with contaminated floodwater.
* Discard any food that has been at room temperature for two hours or more.
* Discard any food that has an unusual odor, color or texture.
*Use ready-to-feed formula, if possible, for formula-fed infants. If using ready-tofeed formula is not possible, it is best to use bottled water to prepare powdered or concentrated formula. If bottled water is not available, use boiled water. Use treated water to prepare formula only if you do not have bottled or boiled water. Breastfed infants should continue breastfeeding.

Roethlisberger extension will wait until 2015
The Associated Press
LATROBE, Pa. - The Pittsburgh Steelers want to reward Ben Roethlisberger for the two Super Bowls he's already won while also making sure the talent around their quarterback is good enough to make a legitimate run at a third ring. Doing both at the same time isn't an option, at least not this year. Steelers president Art Rooney 11 sald Friday the team is putting off awarding Roethlisberger a lengthy
- and certainly lucrative - exctension until the offseason so it can focus on improving a roster that has missed the playoffs each of the past two years.
Pittsburgh typically renegotiates with its starting quarterback when there are two years remaining on the 'current deal. Roethlisberger is about to enter the penultimate season of an eight-year, $102 million contract he signed before the 2008 season.
While Rooney is adamant about making sure Roethlisberger is a Steeler for the remainder of his career, putting something together in 2015 makes more fiscal sense than ironing something out before the 2014 opener aganst Cleveland. Rooney pointed out a likely uptick in the salary cap next spring and Roethlisberger's own competitive desire as the main reasons be-
hind the decision to wait. "Ben wants to be part of a winning team, to be in a position to compete for championships, and hie understands that in order to do that we need to try to keep as many of the other players around as we can," Rooney said. "So, addressing the players who are going into the final years of their contracts in 2014 makes sense." The Steelers signed All-Pro center Maurkice Pouncey to a six-year, $48 million deal at the end of minicamp in June. Several other players in the final year of their contracts, including outside linebacker Jason Worilds, could be in position for significant paydays.
THE CASSOCIATED PRESS
Pittsburgh Steelers center Maurkice Pouncey arrives for training camp in Latrobe, Pa., on Friday.
- Don't eat foods from cans that are swollen, dented or corroded, even though the product may look safe to eat.
9 Don't eat any food that looks or smells abnormal, even if the can looks normal.
- Don't let garbage accumulate inside, both for fire and sanitation reasons.
Note: Thawed food usually can be eaten if it is still "refrigerator cold." It can be re-frozen if it still contains ice crystals. To be safe, remember, "When in doubt, throw it out."
For more information about food safety during an emergency, visit FoodSafety.gov.
Alternative cooking sources in times of emergency including candle warmers, chafing dishes, fondue pots or a fireplace. Charcoal grills and camp stoves are for outdoor use only.
Commercially canned food may be eaten out of the can without warming.
To heat food in a can:
1. Remove the label.'
2. Thoroughly wash and disinfect the can. (Use a diluted solution of one part bleach to ten parts water.)
3. Open the can before heating.
MANAGING FOOD WITHOUT POWER
" Have a refrigerator thermometer. " Know where you can get dry ice. " Keep a few days' worth of ready-toeat foods on hand that do not require cooking or cooling. When the Power Goes Out:
- Keep the refrigerator and freezer doors closed as much as possible.
9 The refrigerator will keep food cold for about 4 hours if it is unopened.
- Refrigerators should be kept at 400 F or below for proper food storage. Once the Power is Restored:
9 Check the temperature inside the refrigerator and freezer. e If an appliance thermometer was kept in the freezer, check the temperature when the power comes back on. If the fre ezer thermometer reads 400 F or below, the food is safe and may be refrozen. If a thermometer has not been kept in the freezer, check each package of food to determine its safety. You can't rely on appearance or odor. If the food still
contains ice crystals or is 40'0IF or below, it is safe to refreeze or cook.
9 Refrigerated food should be safe as long as the power was out for no more than 4 hours. Keep the door closed as much as possible.
9 Discard any perishable food (such as meat, poultry, fish, eggs or leftovers) that has been above 40'0IF for two hours or more. Using Dry Ice:
9 Under normal circumstances you should not keep dry ice in your freezer. If your freezer is functioning properly it will cause the unit to become too cold and your freezer may shut off. However, if you lose power for an extended period of time, dry ice is the best ways to keep things cold.
* Twenty-five pounds of dry ice will keep a 10O-cubic-foot freezer below freezing for 3-4 days.
- If you use dry ice to keep your food cold, make sure it does not come in direct contact with the food. e Use care when handling dry ice, wear dry, heavy gloves to avoid injury.
