Man charged with tampering with evidence
BY DEBORAH BUCKHALTER
A Marianna man was charged with possession of marijuana, resisting arrest without violence, violation of probation and tampering with evidence after he allegedly threw a marijuana cigarette under the hood of his car during an encounter with police. Because of the alleged parole violation resulting from the
incident, Frank Allen White was
denied bond and will spend his 30th birthday in jail.
that a local probation/parole officer called for police assistance July 21 in reference to White. The complaint did not Include any fur-
ther information on the reason for the call-out.
When the responding officer asked for permission to search White's car, he consented, according to the complaint. However, officials allege, White was seen putting a hand in one of his pockets and balked when asked to show his hands. According to the complaint, White wouldn't at first do so. As
the officer tried to get control of Whites hand, White snatched his hand away. The officer reported seeing White throw something under the hood of the car, where the hood meets the windshield. As the police officer and the parole officer tried to restrain White, he continued to resist, officials reported.
Eventually, White was successfully restrained in handcuffs and
the car was searched. The police officer found a single cigarette that tested positive for marijuana in the area where White had thrown the object, police said.
White was on probation at the time of the incident, having previously served a short term in prison on drug-related charges, according to the Florida Department of Corrections website.

School board locks in resource officers
to come from
BY ANGIE COOK
MARIANNA - When classes retin this fall, students at middle and high school campuses will again have the added security of school resource officers, but the Jackson County School Board is looking at a higher price tag for said services. Certified officers who meet SRO training requirements are placed at area schools to work with
school administrators to provide security for students.
Deputies from the Jackson County Sheriff's Department, five in total, will serve as SROs at six campuses: Cottondale High School, Jackson Alternative School,. Malone School, Marianna High School, Sneads High School and Grand Ridge School.
For the services of those five officers during the next school year, the school district will make monthly payments to the Jackson County Board of Commissioners totaling $198,508.80, or $25.32 per hour for 196 eight-
The Graceville Police Department will provide one officer to serve as SRO for Graceville High School. That contract is for $24,912, or $17.30 an hour for 180 eight-hour days.
At Marianna Middle School, the SRO will be an officer from the Marianna Police Department, which will be paid $31,702.70, or $20.22 (if rounded to the nearest cent) per hour for 196 eight-hour days. The total SRO cost to the school district comes in at just over $255,000, some $14,000 more than the same number of officers cost last year.
JCSB Finance Director Kathy Sneads said that increase is due to raises law enforcement received. Another factor for the school district is a drop in the state funding typically used to pay for SROs. Sneads said the amount of "Safe Schools" funding allocated by the Legislature was down due to a decrease in the crime rate. The increase in officer pay and the decrease in state funding means the school district needed to use approximately $90,000 from the General Fund to make up the difference.
Chamber to appoint interim CEO/president
Organization will advertise for Massey replacement
BY DEBORI BUCIQLTR
Jackson County Chamber of Commerce Chairman Cindy Eade said
Thursday that the
organization plans to appoint
president soon, now that Jeff Massey has accepted a job elsewhere, and will advertise for a permanent replacement. That decision was made at a called meeting Wednesday afternoon.
She said members of the chamber'sexecutive committee are looking inside their circle of personal and professional contacts to find an interim to fill the job until it can be properly advertised in a search that Eade said would be "at least statewide. The formal job description is not yet ready for publication, but Eade said it will likely be similar to
the one that Massey operated under during his 14 months at the helm. The chamber board has a meeting already scheduled for Aug. 15, and Eade predicted that the final version will be ready by then and that advertising will soon commence.
In the meantime, Eade said she would contact the Florida Chamber of Commerce for a consultation, saying "they have some resources for hiring" that might be useful. Massey told - board members several weeks ago that he was pursuing another possible job opportunity and about a week ago notified them that he had taken the position as director of solid waste operations for Walton County.
Eade said Massey is leavmg on very good terms and that he has agreed to help the chamber when he can in the coming days, even though he will be reporting for work in Walton County next week. For instance, he plans to take part in the organization's next monthly Friday Power Breakfast, slated for Aug. 8.

Kurt Sagovac, vice president for University Research & Review, presents BCF President Thomas A. Kinchen with the crystal Best Value School trophy.
BCF named Best Value School
The Baptist College of Florida in Graceville was recently named a Best Value School by University Research & Review and their Best Value School Selection Committee http:// tinyurl.com/pq9fsdu. Out of thousands of eligible schools, less than 100 are nominated each quarter, and an even smaller percentage of schools actually meet the assessment criteria to qualify them as a BestValue School. On Tuesday, July 15, Kurt Sagovac, vice president for University Research & Review, arrived on the BCF campus to deliver the
prestigious crystal trophy award to BCF President Thomasï¿½A. Kinchen. BCF was nominated and then went through the selection process conducted by a committee of former college presidents, university CEOs, provosts, and professors. The selection was based on the school's reputation among students and alumni, programs offered, accreditation., and cost 'to attend. BCF will retain the designation for 12 months, at which time they will have an opportunity to re-qualify as a Best Value School. University Research &
Review and their Best Value School Selection Committee aim to make the process of choosing a quality postsecondary school easier for students. For more information on the newly designated Best Value School that is "Changing the World Through the Unchanging Wordï¿½" call 263-3261 ext. 460 or visit the website at www.baptistcollege. edu,

Strong demand for latest educational option
In less than a week, more than 1,100 Florida parents of students with significant special needs including.autism, Down syndrome and cerebral palsy have begun applications for a new type of K-12 scholarship that allows them to individualize their child's education.
The Person Learning Scholarship Account program, the second of its kind in the nation, was passed by the Florida Legislature last spring and signed into law by Gov. Rick Scott. The application process has opened at Step Up For Students, a nonprofit scholarship organization that is authorized to administer the program.
The state set aside $18.4 million for the first year of the program -
enough for an estimated 1,800 students. The scholarships are available to students in kindergarten through 12th grade with one of eight specific learning disabilities.
Parents can use the funds for a wide array of educational options, including private school, therapists, specialist, curricula and materials, even contributions to a prepaid college fund. The application process' opened two days after the Florida teachers union filed suit against SB 850, the bill that created the PLSA program.
Litigation could continue for several months. To apply for a PLSA or to get more information, visit www.stepupforstudents.
Deldayed Miami port tunnel set to open
The Associated Press
MIAMI PortMiami's long-awaited tunnel is finally set to open to the public at 6 a.m. Monday. The $1 billion tunnel, which travels for three-quarters of a mile under Biscayne Bay, was originally scheduled to open May 19, after a grandopening ceremony that featured Gov. Rick Scott. But delays stretched into 11 weeks, thanks to malfunctions that included an exhaust-fan malfunction and a drainage-pipe leak. Bouygues, the Paris-based construction
company that built the tunnel, is paying a daily fine of $115,000 to MAT Concessionaire, the consortium of companies that built the tunnel and will operate it.
By Monday morning, the fines will total nearly $9 million.
Meanwhile, the Florida Department of Transportation won't start making its $33 million annual payment to the company until .the tunnel opens.
Don't expect any pomp and circumstance when the gates finally open, Chris Hodgkins, vice
president of MAT Concessionaire, told the Miami Herald.
"And the only prize for the first customer will be a quick drive time into the port. We're a tunnel, not Best Buy," he added. The tunnel is expected to pull some 16,000 portbound vehicles a day off the streets of downtown Miami.
The vehicles will be routed onto the MacArthur Causeway and then under the bay.

Error made by dispatcher in slaying
The Associated Press
TALLAHASSEE - The head of a dispatch center is acknowledging an "error" was made in the moments after the fatal shooting of Florida State University law school professor Daniel Markel. A 911 operator did not initially alert police that Markel had been shot after receiving a phone call from one of Markel's neighbors. Audio of the call was released
Thursday by the Tallahassee Police Department. Timothy Lee, the director of the center, said a review showed the 9f]1 dispatcher categorized the call as someone being incapacitated. This wrong classification could have resulted in a delay in when police and paramedics arrived on the scene. Markel, who, is wellknown in legal circles nationally and internationally, died later from a gunshot wound to the
head. Police have yet to identify any suspects in the case.

Don't Ask, Don't Tell and cohabitation
It's a hypothetical I case, but one priests frequently face in an American culture transformed by the sexual revolution.
On the other side of the desk is a couple seeking marriage-preparation sessions before a church wedding. At least one of these young people is from a parish family and, thus, has been receiving Holy Communion. Neither has been to confession in years.
The pastor has every
reason to suspect that, like millions of Americans, this couple is already "shacking up."
A Catholic priest knows that the catechism teaches that sex between an un.married man and an unmarried woman is "gravely contrary to the dignity of persons and of human sexuality which is naturally ordered to the good of spouses." He knows that it teaches that anyone "conscious of a grave sin must receive the sacrament of reconciliation before coming to communion."
So a painful question
looms over these encounters: Don't ask, don't tell?
"What I have heard
priests say is that if people come to us to get married, then we don't feel like we can refuse them," said Scott Stanley, co-director of the Center for Marital and Family Studies at the University of Denver. The thinking seems to be that "getting these people married will solve the big problem that, from the church's point of view, exists in their lives."
But when it comes to
addressing doctrinal issues linked to cohabitation, "you get the feeling that priests just don't know what to do right now," he said. Meanwhile, cohabitation has turned into one of the dominant forces shaping new marriages
and homes, with a majority of Americans in their 30s saying they have lived with someone outside of marriage. And new studies, argued Stanley, show that the practice of cohabitation has, for many, become "de-linked from marriage" altogether, with more and more people moving from one cohabitation relationship to another- a practice with serious implications for the stability of future, unions.
While most couples used to think of cohabitation as a "trial marriage," there is evidence this is no longer true. The key is that living together before marriage has become "fundamentally ambiguous" as a sign of faithfulness and commitment. Instead, it's a practice "with no implications about the odds of marrying," one that Stanley calls "CohabiDating."
This reality, for clergy, raises big questions as they deal with couples preparing for marriage, especially in churches that view marriage as a sacrament.
At the end of the 20th century, the U.S. Catholic bishops were circulating materials noting that nearly half of all couples seeking Catholic marriage-preparation sessions were already cohabitating. A set of 1988 guidelines, entitled "Faithful to Each Other Forever," warned priests to avoid two extremes: "(1) Immediately confronting the couple and condemning their behavior and (2) Ignoring
the cohabitation aspect of their relationship."
Ever since, priests have been asked to view marriage-preparation sessions as chances to welcome couples back into the life of the church. However, they are also supposed to communicate that sex outside of marriage is a grave sin.
Thus, some Catholic dioceses - but not all - urge those who are cohabiting to live separately and cease premarital sex while preparing for the Sacramenit of Marriage. The catechism also teaches that it is "appropriate for the bride and groom to prepare themselves for the celebration of their marriage by receiving the sacrament of penance."
While cohabitation remains a scandal for many traditional believers, guidelines from the U.S. bishops note that more and more young people
- along with their parents
- will be scandalized by any attempts by clergy to require cohabiting couples to repent and quit "living in sin" before a church wedding.
Rather than hiding from evolving trends linked to cohabitation, said Stanley, clergy must address these issues more often so that young people will know the faith's teachings long before couples face com-' plications of this kind. Clergy must be willing, he said, to "stand up and tell people that there is good evidence and good research indicating that God had your best intentions in mind when he came up with this whole marriage thing and set some standards for how you prepare for it.... "Cohabitation isn't teaching people how to be committed to each other for a lifetime. Instead, it's teaching them how to pack up and move on."

Study blames lost calves on panthers
The Associated Press
IMMOKALEE - Since Florida's frontier days, when cattlemen drove their herds through the state's vast fields and forests, ranchers and native panthers have been natural enemies.
The ranchers seek to nurture and protect their calves, while the panthers see them as prey. Human development won the battle, driving the large, tawny cats to the brink of extinction before successful efforts to restore them began decades ago.
But with Florida's panther population recovering, some ranchers complain the protected, 6 to 7-foot long predators are once again killing their calves.
Now, university research supports that claim, at least in one part of southwest Florida.
A University of Florida researcher hired by federal wildlife officials has found that panthers are killing calves in an area where the predatory felines are thriving. Her study, the first to quantify the kills and losses, was given to The.Associated Press exclusively.
The research marks the first step toward the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service considering a program that would pay ranchers for preserving acres of panther habitat, instead of undertaking the impossible task of verifying every kill.
"Ranchers will tell you that they suspected panthers were killing their calves, although no one knows how many they're losing," said Caitlin Jacobs, the university researcher who staked out a ranch for the better part of two years. "It's hard to find the calves - when panthers
kill, they drag the prey into the forest and cover it with brush to hide them from scavengers.
It's estimated that at one time, more than 1,300 panthers roamed Florida before their numbers dwindled - at one point in the 1800s, the state's government offered $5 for panther scalps. There were as few as 20 panthers in the J 1990s, but the population has rebounded thanks to conservation efforts.
The problem began to draw the attention of state and federal wildlife officials about four years ago, after third-generation Florida rancher Liesa Priddy, owner of the 9,300-acre JB Ranch near Immokalee, became suspicious when a new calf vanished.
"My first calf went missing shortly after being born," said Priddy, who is also a member of the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission. "I couldn't find remnants of a body or anything else. She just totally disappeared."

SeaWorld, Southwest Airlines ending partnership
The Associated Press
ORLANDO - Southwest Airlines and SeaWorld Entertainment are ending
-their 25-year-old marketing partnership, officials with both companies said Thursday, as the airline has been urged by animal rights activists to terminate the relationship.
The partnership won't be renewed at the end of the year when the current contract expires. As part of the partnership, three Southwest airplanes had various SeaWorld animals painted on their bodies. Those planes will be painted over to Southwest's traditional look. SeaWorld also had Southwest signs in its parks, and Southwest offered vacation packages to SeaWorld, as it does to other tourist destinations. The vacation packages will continue. SeaWorld officials said the decision was mutual. SeaWorld wants to concentrate on growing markets in Latin America and Asia, the marine park company said in a statement.
"Southwest and SeaWorld have enjoyed their long relationship, and wish each other continued success," the statement said.
SeaWorld has parks in Orlando; San Antonio and San Diego.
Southwest spokeswoman Marilee Mclnnis said it was a business decision as the airline intends to

focus on international service.
Earlier this year, animal rights activist held a rally and dropped off a petition at Southwest, urging the airline to end the relationship. The activists cited the documentary "Blackfish," which explores what may have caused the killer whale Tilikum to kill SeaWorld trainer Dawn Brancheau in 2010. The documentary argues that killer whales, when in captivity, become more aggressive toward humans and each other. Since the documentary, several entertainers have
pulled out of planned performances at SeaWorld Entertainment Inc. parks. Regarding the pressure from the activists, McInnis said Southwest has been in "listening and education mode."
"We ... have engaged and heard from conservationists, SeaWorld supporters and others on all sides of this issue," Mclnnis said. The president of the animal rights group People for the Ethical
Treatment of Animals said in a statement that workers in her office were delighted to hear the partnership was ending.
"Champagne corks were popping at PETA today when we heard that
Southwest will no longer support SeaWorld and will repaint its planes," said Ingrid Newkirk. "The second I heard the good news, I knew that I'd be booking my next trip on Southwest."

US warns against traveling to Ebola-hit countries
The Associated Press
NEW YORK - U.S. health officials on Thursday warned Americans not to travel to the three West African countries hit by an outbreak of Ebola. The travel advisory applies to nonessential travel to Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone, where the deadly disease has killed more than 700 people this year.
"The bottom line is Ebola is worsening in West Africa," said Dr. Tom Frieden, director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, who announced the travel warning. He called Ebola "a tragic, dreadful and merciless virus."
The purpose of the travel warning is to not only protect U.S. travelers, but limit their use of overburdened clinics and hospitals for injuries or other illnesses, he said. For more than a month, CDC has advised travelers to simply take precautions when in the outbreak region. Thursday's alert is the highest-level. The ,World Health Organization,, however, has
not issued a similar travel warning for the West Africa region. The last time, the CDC issued a highlevel warning was in 2003 because of a SARS outbreak in Asia. The current outbreak is the largest since the disease first emerged in Africa nearly 40 years ago. The virus is contagious and is spread by direct contact with blood or bodily fluids from a sick person. Ebola can't be spread like flu through casual contact or breathing in the same air. Experts estimate that in this outbreak, about 60 percent of the people who have gotten sick with Ebola have died - a frightening fatality rate that is among the highest of any disease. There is no vaccine and no specific treatment for it. Two American aid workers in Liberia have been diagnosed with Ebola, and one of them was getting an experimental treatment. At the White House, press secretary Josh Earnest said the U.S. is looking into options to bring them back to the U.S. While the U.S. government would facilitate

In San Francisco real estate, $IM won't buy much
The Associated Press
SAN FRANCISCO - San Francisco Association of Realtors President Betty Taisch has two words of advice for those who want to live here and think $1 million will buy them their dream house: think again.
In the souped-up world of San Francisco real estate, where the median selling price for houses and condominiums last month hit seven figures for the first time, the cool million that would fetch a mansion on a few acres elsewhere will now barely cover the cost of an 800square foot starter home that needs work and may or may not include private parking.
Taisch, a veteran broker who is used to managing her clients' expectations, has experienced first-hand the heartbreak and hairpulling inherent to househunting in what she considers one of the world's "most desirable, fabulous cities." She put her professional skills to work this summer on behalf of her adult son and his family, who had outgrown their one-bedroom apartment. After three unsuccessful offers, they ended up paying $913,000 for a twobedroom, one-bath house with an outdated kitchen, a yard that can charitably be called overgrown, and a big basement that Taisch counts as its most attractive feature.
"It certainly is a milestone. It's like, 'Wow!"," she said of the city's new million-dollar median. "Everybody thinks San Francisco is all Pacific Heights Victorians, and it's not. There are many
areas of the city that are just normal, single-family homes that are small and not posh at all." The technology's industry's rapid growth coupled with 49-square-mile San Francisco's constrained supply of housing is a big part of the story behind the city's ascension to a rarified real estate bracket already occupied by New .York City, but Silicon Valley wealth also is stoking the market in the greater San Francisco Bay Area, according to Andrew LeP,age, an analyst with CoreLogic DataQuick, a real estate research firm in Irvine.
Between April and June, the Bay Area saw a record number of homes and condos going for $1 million and above, and they accounted for onequarter of all sales in the region, CoreLogic DataQuick said in a report released Thursday. During the same three-month period, six of the Bay Area's nine counties set records for the number of homes and condos selling for over $2 million, as did California as a whole, the report said.
"The robust tech economy and the overall economy mean the Bay Area has been doing better than most for years now," LePage said. "It areadywas expensive, and a lot of these high-end markets weren't hammered as hard during the downturn because they weren't exposed to subprime mortgages, so ,they had less ground to recover in the first place."
George Limperis, an agent with Paragon Real Estate Group in San Francisco, agrees that freshly
George Umperis, a realtor with Paragon Real Estate Group, smiles while walking through the kitchen of a property In the Noe Valley neighborhood In San Francisco on Wednesday. In the souped-up world of San Francisco real estate, where the median selling price for homes and condominiums hit seven figures for the first time last month, the cool million that would fetch a mansion on a few acres elsewhere will now barely cover the cost of an 800-square foot starter home that needs wok and may or may not Include private parking.
minted technology millionaires who can afford to bid up a property until they win it with an allcash offer are helping to drive up demand. But unlike during the city's first tech boom in the late 1990s, the buyers prepared to lay down more than $1 million on a fixerupper in a neighborhood within walking distance of shops and restaurants also include Asian investors and retirees from other major cities who already are accustomed to skyscraper prices for shoebox dwellings, Limperis said. "It feels like a very different city than it certainly did even 15 years ago. There is money coming
from so many places now," he said. "So many of these buyers today, they have lived in London, they have lived In Hong Kong, they have lived in New York, and to them these prices are parallel, We can't compare San Francisco with median housing prices even elsewhere in California because this is an international level we are dealing with." Limperis this month represented the sellers of a 1,200-square-foot, two-bedroom home "in poor condition" that had been in their family for generations. Located on a commercial street in San Francisco's Noe Valley neighborhood, an
area prized for its modest Victorians, the home was listed for a little under $1.2 million. By the end of its first week on the market, 10 people had submitted all-cash offers. The house sold for $1.8 million to a developer who plans to convert it into condos. "Everyone is aghast at what these things sell for, but as long as the economy keeps going it like it does, these numbers do make sense," Limperis said. Being prepared to go well over a home's ask-, ing price and willing to sacrifice style or a second bathroom are some of the pointers that Kelly Kang, a colleague c( Limperis' at Paragon, gives to buyers.
Kang just represented a young couple with a child who were interested in a 756-square-foot, two-bedroom, one-bath row house built in 1950 in a newly hot neighborhood near a park and public transit that was' listed at a little more than $1 million after having sold for $710,000 five years ago.
The couple offered $1.2 million and wrote a "love letter" about the house explaining why it was just right for their family. They got the house. "People that want to stay in San Francisco really love the city, so what they are buying is the city more than the property," Kang said.

Probe exposes flaws behind HealthCare.gov rollout
The Associated Press
WASHINGTON - Management failures by the Obama administration set the stage for computer woes that paralyzed the president's new health care program last fall, nonpartisan investigators said in a report released Wednesday. While the administration was publicly assuring consumers that they would soon have seamless online access to health insurance, a chaotic procurement process was about to deliver a stumbling start. After a months long investigation, the Government Accountability Officd found that the administration lacked "effective planning or oversight practices" for the development of HealthCare.gov, the portal for millions of uninsured Americans.
As a result, the government incurred "significant cost increases, schedule slips and delayed system functionality," William Woods, a GAO contracting expert, said in testimony. prepared for a hearing Thursday by the House Energy and Commerce Committee. The GAO is the nonpartisan, investigative agency of Congress. Spokesman Aaron Albright said the administration takes its responsibility for contract oversight seriously and has already started carrying out improvements that go beyond GAO's recommendations. The congressional investigators recommended a cost-control plan and other changes to establish clear procedures and improve oversight
But Sen. Orrin Hatch, R-Utah, one of the
lawmakers who requested the Investigation, said, "Millions of taxpayer dollars were wasted to build a website that didn't work, all because of bureaucratic incompetence." Investigators found that the administration kept changing the contractors' marching orders for the HealthCare.gov website, creating widespread confusion and adding tens of millions of dollars in costs. Changes were ordered seemingly willy-nilly, including 40 times when government officials did not have the initial authority to incur additional costs. The report faults the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Service for ineffective oversight. Known as CMS, the agency is part of the Health and Human Services Department and was designated to administer Obama's health care law. The GAO concluded:
* Contractors were not given a coherent plan, and instead jumped around from issue to issue.
* The cost of a glitchy, computerized sign-up system for consumers ballooned from $56 million to more than $209 million from September 2011 to February 2014. The cost of the electronic backroom for verifying applicants' information jumped from $30 million to almost $85 million.
* CMS, representing the administration, failed to follow up on how well the contractors performed.
* A third contract, for fixes to the website, grew from $91 million in January to $175 million as of last month.
Two contractors initially took the lead building

This March 1 photo shows part.of the website for HealthCare.gov, photographed In Washington. Management failures by the Obama administration set the stage for the computer woes that paralyzed the president's new health care program last fall, nonpartisan Investigators said In testimony released Wednesday. After a months long Investigation, the Government Accountability Office found that the administration lacked "effective planning or oversight practices" for the development of HealthCare.gov, the online portal to coverage for millions of uninsured Americans.
Virginia-based CGI Federal built HealthCare.gov, the consumer-facing portal to subsidized private coverage for the uninsured. The site serves 36 states, while the remaining states built their own systems, with mixed results. QSSI, based in Maryland, was responsible for an electronic back office that helps verify personal and financial information to determine whether consumers are eligible for tax credits to help pay their premiums. The consumer end of the system locked up the day it was launched, Oct. 1, and was down most of that Initial month. The electronic back office had fewer problems.
A few months before the launch, the CMS agency
notified CGI it was so dissatisfied that it would start withholding payments. Then It rescinded that decision.
CMS ultimately paid nearly all of CGI's $12.5 million in fees, withholding only $267,000, the report said, The agency later ended its contract with CGI. Another contractor, Accenture, was brought in to make website fixes. Confronted with a public-relations disaster, the White House sent in a troubleshooter, management consultant Jeff Zients. He removed CMS as project leader, relegating it to a supporting role. CMS administrator Marilyn Tavenner later personally apologized to Congress, saying *The website has not worked as well as
Zients' rescue operation got the site working by early December. Eventually, some 8 million people managed to sign up, far exceeding expectations. Nonetheless, Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Seielius stepped down amid complaints by White House officials that the president was blindsided by the problems. The original contractors testified to Congress that they did not have nearly enough time to test the system before it went live. Indeed, Tavenner took the unusual step of signing the operational security certificate for HealthCare. gov herself, after CMS security professionals balked. The site has since passed full security testing.
The GAO's findings added to earlier conclusions in a report by Zients after his team got the website to work
Beyond a maze of technical problems, Zients said he found "inadequate management oversight and coordination" that "prevented real-time decision-making and efficient responses." Obama has already weathered theworst storms from the bungled health care launch, so the report is unlikely to create major political problems for the White House and Democrats generally. But it does shine a light on what was going on behind the scenes even as administration officials fostered the impression that signing up for health care would be simple, like shopping online.

UCF coach not worried about naming starting QB
The Associated Press
ORLANDO, Fla. - The only thing that UCF's players want lingering from the best season in school history is the hunger it took to produce it. The Knights reported for preseason camp Thursday after going 12-1 with a Fiesta Bowl win last season. With a month to prepare for the Aug. 30 season opener in Ireland against Penn State.i..,they also understand there is little time to dwell on the past.
"Coach told us last night when
we got in our meeting that last season is over with," Knights senior linebacker Terrance Plummer said. "If we want to be able to enjoy that type of success again, then we have to work hard like we did last year. That all started in camp, it all starts the first day and it carries on. "So I hope guys don't have that mindset (thinking about last season) - I know I don't." The Knights return nine starters on defense and six on offense, but were still picked to finish second in the American Athletic Conference preseason
poll behind Cincinnati. They were also left a few slots out of the Top 25 in the preseason USA' Today coaches' poll released on Thursday.
It's not a glaring omission, considering the departures UCF did have were at key positions.
The biggest hole to fill will be at quarterback and running back, following the departure of Blake Bortles and Storm Johnson to the NFL.
At running back that task doesn't appear to be too daunting with the confidence coaching staff already has shown in
sophomore Will Stanback, who was second-team all-conference as a freshman.
But at quarterback Bortles left behind a group of potentialfilled, but inexperienced candidates to succeed him. Knights coach George O'Leary originally planned to name his successor by the end of the spring season, but in the end decided to keep the competition open. He reiterated on Thursday he remains in no rush. "I'll let you know when I'm going to name one, it's not a big secret," O'Leary said. "I'll let you
know when I feel comfortable about somebody. Everybody's trying to get a jump on it. My wife's going to be the first one to know. And she's out of the state, so good luck."
Sophomore Justin Holman is the only player on the Knights roster to get any game snaps last season, having appeared in three games. But the competition is wide-open. Others vying to be Bortles replacement are redshirt freshman Pete DiNovo, freshman lyler

Ravens running back Ray Rice walks off the field before addressing the media at a news conference in Owings Mills, Md. on Thursday.
The Associated Press
OWINGS MILLS, Md. - Ray Rice stepped to the microphone, took a deep breath and spoke for 17 minutes about what he called "the biggest mistake of his life."
His arrest for domestic violence against his then-fiancee last February is something Rice figures will haunt him long after NFL career has ended. The Baltimore Ravens running back was arrested on assault charges following a Feb. 15 altercation in New Jersey in which he allegedly struck Janay Palmer. Rice has been accepted into a diversion program, which upon completion could lead to the charges being dropped.
"My actions that night were totally inexcusable," said Rice, who during Ravens training camp Thursday spoke publicly for the first time since receiving a two-game suspension from the NFL.
"My daughter is 2 years old now. One day she's going to know the power of Google. Me having to explain that to her, what happened that night, that's something I have to live with the rest of mylife."
Rice was referring to a grainy video in which he is shown dragging Palmer, now his wife, from an elevator at an Atlantic City casino. He did not address the incident at an impromptu news conference in May, and although he refused to divulge details on Thursday, he dismissed the notion that he was provoked.
"I don't want to keep re-living the incident. I'm trying to move forward," he said. "What happened that night was a huge mistake, and that's what I'll keep it at. I don't condone any of my behavior. I take full responsibility for my actions. My wife can do no wrong." Rice wore a Ravens polo shirt and a pained expression throughout the session. More than a dozen TV cameras were in place, some telecasting the interview live, and several of his teammates stood behind the throng to show their support.
Rice, 27, is the team's career leader in, total scrimmage yards and ranks behind only Jamal Lewis in total yards rushing. But this press conference wasn't about football.
This was about apologizing for actions that he insisted were one of a kind. "It was the first time it ever happened," he said. "I've never had a problem with domestic abuse. This was a one-time incident."

Jaguars receiver Denard Robinson (16) runs after making a catch during training camp in Jacksonvile, Fla, on July 25.
Jacksonville WRs Doss, Robinson injured in practice
The Associated Press
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - Already without suspended receivers Justin Blackmon and Ace Sanders as well as injured starter Cecil Shorts III (hamstring), the Jacksonville Jaguars got even thinner at the position Thursday.
Receiver Tandon Doss, expected to be the team's punt returner, badly injured his right ankle on the final play of practice. Doss got his ankle caught under linebacker Geno Hayes during a red-zone play. He screamed in pain as trainers rushed to place his leg in an air cast. X-rays were negative, showing no broken bones, but Doss is expected tomiss significant time.
Making matterswo'rse for Jacksonville, , rookie r eceiver Allen Robinson felt tightness in his right hamstring- the same injury that kept him out during
organized team activities and sat out most of practice. "That's kind of the name of the game," fellow receiver Mike Brown said. "It's a very physical game, lot of contact, and the reality is that injuries do happen. When those injuries happen you've got to have a nextman-up mentality. Everybody has got to be ready to step in. Nobody's going to feel sorry for you, so hopefully guys can capitalize on the opportunity." Two more players were hurt Thursday. Rookie guard Brandon Linder, a third-round pick from Miami who has been working with the first team; sprained his right foot. And linebacker John Lotulelei sprained the medial collateral ligament in his left knee. But much of the talk after practice was about the wideout position.

Vandy's new coach sees only opportunity in camp

Vanderbilt Coach Derek Mason speaks to media at SEC Media Days on July 14 In Hoover, Ala.
The Associated Press
NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Derek Mason has to find a new starting quarterback and replace not only the receiver who rewrote the Southeastern Conference record book but an entire secondary.
That's led to some grim expectations outside Vanderbilt. The first-year head coach can't wait to get to work.
Mason said Wednesday that he believes they have bought into what he and his assistants are selling about opportunity and dreaming big. He has had
his script for Thursday's first practice of preseason camp ready for weeks and has talked enough with members of a unity council comprised of a handful of players to know they're ready too.
"If I can't believe my football team, who can I believe," Mason said.
Vanderbilt Is coming off consecutive 9-4 .seasons capped with bowl wins and Thp 25 rankings. James Franklin left for Penn State, and Mason was hired away from Stanford

Manziel battling playbook, Hoyer in first camp
The Associated Press
BEREA, Ohio - Johnny Manziel has quickly learned that his college days - on the field, aniyway - are over.
Less than a week into his first NFL training camp with the Browns, Manziel is going through the typical growing pains of any rookie quarterback.
He's doing all he can in the classroom to grasp Cleveland's offense, but the former Heisman Trophy winner is finding that once he's behind center, everything is moving faster than expected.
He's making mental and physical mistakes. The throws that Came so easy for him at Texas A&M aren't there. He's not scrambling around and making defenders look silly. Not yet. Johnny Football isn't dominating.
"I'm a rookie," he said. "I don't have all that stuff figured out." Still, Manziel is making progress and staying close to Brian Hoyer in their competition to be Cleveland's starter. Both QBs have had their good and bad moments through five practices, and offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan said a contest that has divided Browns fans remains a tight race. "I don't think one's any further in front than the other," Shanahan said.
Hoyer has taken all the snaps so far with Cleveland's first-team offense, with Manziel working ex-

clusively with the second-stringers. However, the Browns plan to give Manziel some reps with the starters "sooner than later." Shanahan, who joined the Browns after four seasons in Washington, is eager for Hoyer or Manziel to seize the job, push into the leadand stay there. To this point, they've traded spots. 'As far as these five practices, it's usually one day one guy's ahead of the other," he said. "The next day, the other guy does a better
job. I think it's been back and forth. It's something that I don't try to evaluate every day. I try to just coach both of them and get them better. Usually in my experience, when you've been in a situation like this, it usually plays out.
"We've been in a week. Hope. fully as these preseason games go, as these practices go, I hope one of them will make the decision easy on us, one will just take off and start playing really well.
Usually the answer becomes pretty easy. If they make it tough, I hope it's because they're both playing really well." Manziel acknowledged some "ups and downs" during his first week in camp. He claims not to be worried about whether he's made up ground on Hoyer, who as expected, has looked sharper than his younger teammate. Manziel said his sole focus is on getting a handle on learning Cleveland's offense.
"I'm not worried about one or the other being'ahead," he said. "I'm worried about me making siire I know what I need to know to get out here and execute and run the offense and not have any mistakes. Once I go through a couple of days with no mental errors or getting where I need to be every single time, then I'll feel alot better.
"Right now, it's me versus the playbook and there's nothing else."
Manziel is finding it difficult to operate the same way he did in college, where he shattered records and captivated a generation of fans with his uncanny ability to ad-lib and turn a routine play into something spectacular. It's a whole different game in the pros with bigger, faster, stronger players.
Shanahan said Manziel is beginning to understand he has to be a different quarterback. He doesn't have a choice. There's not time to freelance or be creative and run around in the NFL It's get the ball, make a decision and get rid of it.
"The test when you get to the NFL is a lot of times those defenses won't allow you to do that," he said. "They're going to keep you in the pocket. They're going to have their containment. So you can't always be looking for it. You've got to be able to do both, and when something's not there or when a defense gets out of their lanes, yeah, make them pay."

Dolphins running back Lamar Miller (26) talks to quarterback Ryan Tannehill (17) during training camp in Davie, Fla., on Wednesday.
Miller making case for starting job
The Associated Press
DAVIE, Fla. - Miami running back Lamar Miller plans to maximize his speed and quickness in the new offense the Dolphins are implementing. With veteran free ,agent Knowshor Moreno unable to participate in camp due to a knee injury, the starting job right now is Miller's to lose. The Dolphins conducted their sixth practice of training camp Thursday, and so far Miller has made a strong case in the eyes of new offensive coordinator Bill Lazor and head coach Joe Philbin.
"We're still primarily a zone-blocking team," Philbin explained. "That's still the starting point, and so in the zone game if you incorporate the read aspect to it, sometimes you're hoping to create
a little crease and slow a little bit of the pursuit down on the backside and utilize Lamar's speed to hit that hole and go." Miller, entering his third year in the league, led the team in rushing last season with 709 yards and two touchdowns on 177 carries. He also caught 26 passes for 170 yards, which is something that the Dolphins could do more of with the former Miami Hurricane. The Philadelphia Eagles, where Lazor came from, had the league's leader in total yards from scrimmage last season in running back LeSean McCoy. He rushed for 1,607 yards, and added 539 receiving yards for a combined 2,146 yards and Miller spoke with McCoy during the offseason to get some tips on what Lazor was bringing to Miami.
Morgan embracing change, multiple roles with Titans
The Associated Press
NASHVILLE, Tenn. Derrick Morgan had plenty of reasons for questions: Ken Whisenhunt is his third head coach with the Tennessee Titans, and now he is being asked to play outside linebacker and defensive end.
The defensive end got enough answers that he is optimistic about the changes.
"I think it's all going to work itself out the way it's supposed to," Morgan said Thursday after practice. "I'm embracing the change and a positive mindset about it. That's just how I'm taking on this challenge and hoping to come out on top and make a good transition." The team's first-round draft pick in 2010, Morgan said he wondered after Whisenhunt hired defensive coordinator Ray Horton how he would fit into the defense. Horton is mixing in a 3-4 front on a team that used a 4-3 scheme for years. Morgan has had the advantage of the offseason program and has been in

pads a couple times now during training camp.
"The transitions been going pretty good," Morgan said. "Getting more and more comfortable every day, so it's a learning process. But at the same time, it hasn't been too drastic of a change. Just a few wrinkles here and there." Morgan still rushes the quarterback. The 6-foot-3 lineman, who missed most of his rookie season with a torn ACL, has 16.5 sacks in his four seasons with the Titans. He ranked second
on the team with six sacks last season, and he also has 48 career quarterback pressures.
Right tackle Michael Oher, signed in March away from Baltimore, has been blocking Morgan regularly so far. Oher loves Morgan's quickness coming off the ball. "He works hard every play and has good technique in his rushes," Oher said. "He just comes to work every day is all I see. I like him as a rusher getting to the quarterback."

Carolina's Luke Kuechly (59) directs the defense during training camp in Spartanburg, S.C., on Tuesday.
Panthers srving to be NFL's No. 1 defense
The Associated Press
SPARTANBURG, S.C. The Carolina Panthers defense is looking to take one more step in 2014.
Luke Kuechly said even though the Panthers were No. 2 in the NFL in defense last season, he sees plenty of room for improvement. Kuechly, the team's middle linebacker and last year's AP Defensive Player of the Year, points to early-season losses to Seattle and Buffalo in which Carolina gave up late touchdowns.
"We need to do a better job of finishing games," Kuechly said.
Only the Super Bowl champion Seattle Seahawks allo,,ed fewer yards and fewer points last season than the Panthers. With everyone returning from a disruptive front seven and with some added NFL experience in the secondary, some Panthers feel like they can unseat the Seahawks as the league's elite defensive team.
"I feel like we can be the league's No.1 defense," said second-year defensive tackle Kawann Short. Carolina allowed 301.3 yards and 15.1 points per game last season; the Seahawks allowed 276.3 yards and 14.4 points. The Panthers allowed the fewest touchdowns
(21), had the most sacks
(50) and were third in redzone defense last season under defensive coordinator Sean McDermott. The Panthers lost only two defensive starters from 2013 - cornerback Captain Munnerlyn and safety Mike Mitchell but replaced them with veterans Antoine Cason and Roman Harper. They also added veteran safety Thomas DeCoud. With so many players familiar with the defense and a plethora of NFL experience, Panthers coach Ron Rivera said the team has already been able to install 75 percent of its defense just one week into training camp. "That's a huge plus for us," Rivera said. "As a coordinator you get to the point where the more you get in, the quicker you can refine things and start working on your opponents. ... It can shore things up Where you can be a top-three defense." Rivera knows what it's like to have a No. 1 defense.
He was the defensive coordinator in San Diego in 2010, when the Chargers finished first in the league.
Cason was a member of that squad and said this team "is a little different" from the Chargers in terms of personnel, but has big-time potential. "Everyone is together; everyone picks each other Up," Cason said. "Everyone hustles and does exactly what they .need to do within the defense to make it work." The Panthers return veteran defensive end Charles Johnson and Greg Hardy, who combined for 26 sacks last year; de-,, fensive tackles Dwan Edwards and Colin Cole; and linebackers Thomas Davis, Chase Blackburn and
Kuechly from last year's team, giving Rivera a host of veteran leaders on the field.
"Just the fact that most of the defense is a solid group in terms of veterans, that helps," Rivera said.
And the youth isn't bad either.
The Panthers' defense flourished last season despite playing six rookies
- sometimes all at the same time.
Rivera said he expects defensive tackles Star Lotulelei and Short, defensive end Wes Horton, linebacker A.J. Klein and cornerback Melvin White and safety Robert Lester to take another big step in 2014 with one year behind them.
Together that group of rookies played in. 85 combined games, had 169 tackles, 8.5 sacks and two fumble recoveries. It all lends itself to a potentially promising season under the team's fourth-year defensive coordinator, who runs a 4-3 base defensive scheme with some occasional 3-4 looks.
Colston expects rest to equal success
The Associated Press
WHITE SULPHUR SPRINGS, W.Va. Marques Colston let out a laugh and shrugged his shoulders when the subject of his NFL longevity arose.
"I'd rather look at that at the end of the season," said the New Orleans Saints' all-time leading receiver, now in his ninth year. as a pro, "When it's time to hang 'em up, I'm pretty sure I'll know and everyone else will know. But it's surely not that time yet."
Affirming that he feels healthy after making a concerted effort to rest a nagging left-foot injury this offseason, Colston aims to demonstrate why it may be premature to discuss his decline. Last season, Colston fell short of the lofty standards he's set during most of his career. He caught 75 passes for 943 yards and five touchdowns, ranking 28th in the NFL in catches,

27th in yards and 37th in TDs.
His 63 yards receiving per game were the lowest of his career. It also marked only the second time he failed to reach 1,000 yards in a season the first being 2008, when he missed five games with a hand injury. Last season, he missed just one game. Yet at 31, Colston is bound to find his role growing this season. He and Robert Meachem
are the only receivers on the squad with more than one year of regular-season experience, but whether there will be room for Meachem on the 2014 regular season roster remains unclear.
The Saints have a number of young receivers who have shown promise, including Kenny Stills, Nick Toon, Joe Morgan and first-round draft choice Brandin Cooks. Colston said it is odd for
him to look around during receivers meetings and realize that he is oldest guy in the room, and in most cases, "by far." While Colston has never been a particularly outspoken player, that doesint mean he won't embrace a leadership role - though he may have his own, lowkey way of doing it. "It's not really about getting on guys. It's about being a resource to make corrections," Colston said, adding that younger receivers ask "a ton of questions and I'm glad to answer them."
The Saints appear content to let Colston lead as he sees fit.
"Guys can lead in different ways," coach Sean Payton said. "We don't want their personalities to change. He's someone that's always been fairly quiet. He does a lot of his talking (with his play)." Meanwhile, Payton seeks to keep Colston as healthy as possible by limiting his workload.
Lynch ends holdout, arrives at Seahawks camp
The Associated Press
RENTON, Wash. - Marshawn Lynch's holdout is over, ending one distraction so far for the Super Bowl champions.
Lynch arrived at the Seattle Seahawks practice facility Thursday afternoon after the team's morning practice. The team confirmed Lynch had reported for camp, ending a holdout that spanned a week.
Lynch was caught by television cameras talking on his phone out near the Seahawks practice fields wearing a hooded "Beast Mode" sweatshirt and knit cap on an 85degree day. He was later hanging out in the lobby of the facility.
ESPN reported earlier Thursday that Lynch was expected to end his holdout. Seattle coach Pete Carroll said after practice that he did not know if Lynch was on the verge of reporting.
"Hopefully he's here," quarterback Russell Wilson said after practice. "He's such a good football player, we would love to have him here and he's done a tremendous job for us since I've been here. I know that. He's had some unbelievable runs for us." Lynch must still pass his physical and be added to the active roster. Seattle's roster is currently at the 90-man limit.
Lynch missed the first week of training camp unhappy with his
contract status. Lynch is scheduled to make up to $5.5 million this season in base pay and roster bonuses. It's the third year of a four-year deal Lynch signed before the 2012 season.
Seattle made clear on the first. day of training camp that it had a plan in place before Lynch signed his extension and that it was not inclined to stray from those plans. "We've had a substantial plan working for us for years now, and Marshawn was a big part of this plan," Carroll said on the opening day of camp. "Just a couple of years back we made a big statement and made a big effort for him, and we wish that he was with us now."

I was diagnosed with endometrial stromal sarcoma and required a complete hysterectomy. During my surgery, the doctor found a five-pound tumor (which explained my unusual weight gain). I have since endured more than 30 radiation sessions and will continue this treatment until the cancer is gone.

North showed three-card heart spport, South went for game in that suit. Yes, three no-trumip would have been easy to make, with nine top tricks, but bidding isn't always perfect.
Since East does not want West to shift, he should encourage spades enthusiastically by dropping his
nine. West should then cash the spade king and lead a third round of the suit.
Let's suppose East thoughtlessly switches to a club. South, who must play the trump suit without loss, should hope that East has the king and jack. Declarer takes the fourth trick with dummy's club queen, plays a heart to his 10, crosses back to dummy with a diamond, leads a heart to his queen, cashes the heart ace and claims. However, an East who Is thinking will realize that, based on the point-count, West is unlikely to have a high club. Instead, East will lead his last spade, which promotes a trump trick for the defense.

sget Lester, Gomes from Red Sox for Cespedes
The Associated Press
OAKLAND, Calif. - The Oakland Athletics won the Jon Lester sweepstakes, acquiring the left-hander and outfielder Jonny Gomes from the Boston Red Sox for slugging outfielder Yoenis Cespedes before Thursday's trade deadline.
Oakland, with the best record in baseball at 66-41, also received cash from Boston in another blockbuster deal by A's general manager Billy Beane. The Red Sox also get a draft pick in a deal confirmed by both teams.
"I believe that the deliberations leading to the two trades we did today were *deeply analyzed, thoughtful and valueadded,"A:s owner LewWolff said in an email. "The best trades are when all parties have potential benefits, and what Billy accomplished is an example of such a win-win. The calls I have received from other owners were very complimentary." A few hours later, the Red Sox traded their No. 2 starter, righthander John Lackey, to the St. Louis Cardinals for right-hander Joe Kelly and outfielder Allen Craig, a person with knowledge of the deal said. The person spoke on condition of anonymity to The Associated Press because neither club announced that trade.

Red Sox starting pitcher Jon Lester pitches against the Tampa Bay Rays during the first Inning of a game in St. Petersburg, Fla., on July 25.
Lester is having an outstanding season with a 10-7 record and career-best 2.52 ERA in 21 starts. He has allowed seven earned runs In his last eight games with 54 strikeouts and nine walks. But the Red Sox put him on the trading block because he can become a free agent after the season. He was sought by many teams, including Pittsburgh and the Los Angeles Dodgers. The 30-year-old, three-time AllStar originally was scheduled to start Wednesday night for the slumping Red Sox, who instead scratched Lester ahead of the

Jacksonville can't seem to catch a break at that spot this year. The Jaguars were down seven receivers during OTAs, and learned two days before training camp that Sanders would miss the first four games for violating the NFL's substanceabuse policy. Sanders took a leave of absence from the team to seek counseling. Blackmon hasn't been around since getting suspended indefinitely last November for repeated violations of the league's drug policy.
Shorts, meanwhile, strained his right hamstring in the opening practice of camp and has out since.

where he had been defensive coordinator. Quarterback Austyn Carta-Samuels finished his eligibility playing on a torn ACL, and receiver Jordan Matthews is with the NFL's Philadelphia Eagles.
Mason, who has 13 starters back, has six quarterbacks vying for the starting job, including Patton Robinette, who won at Florida and also finished off wins against Georgia and Tennessee. Stephen Rivers is in the mix too after transferring from LSU this summer. Mason said Rivers and his people reached
After winning their third World Series in 10 seasons last year, with Lester getting two of the four wins with a 0.59 ERA against St. Louis, the powerpoor Red Sox are last in the AL East with a 48-60 record. They had Thursday off after losing for the eighth time in nine games to drop 13 games behind firstplace Baltimore. While the Red Sox look toward next season, the A's are determined to take the next step after losing in each of the past two Octobers in five-game division series to Detroit. Oakland was
He will have some company on the sideline now, joined by Doss and probably Robinson.
"It's just one those things," receiver Lamaar Thomas said. "It's part of the game. It's going to come up. Unfortunately those things have come up early in the season. Hopefully later on in the season you won't have to worry about those problems.
"As an organization, as a team, you expect to have some injuries throughout the season. And you expect to have guys step up and fill those roles. You feel bad for guys like Cecil and TD, and hopefully those guys will be healthy for the season, but it's a chance for other guys to step up during camp and make some plays when called upon."
out to Vanderbilt first after studying options across the country, and the coach can't wait to see the younger brother of San Diego quarterback Philip Rivers.
"The door's wide open. It's anybody's opportunity. Come and get it," Mason said. "I mean he's worked extremely hard. When you see him, you'll have an opportunity to see how his body's changed from what it looked like at LSU to where he is here. He's pretty confident about what he's been able to do in a short amount of time. I think he's going to be a great leader in terms of what it looks like off the field as well as what he's going to try to do on
off Thursday before returning home to begin a weekend series with Kansas City on Friday night.
It's unclear what day Lester would start, though it's likely to be Saturday. Sonny Gray (12-3) is scheduled for Friday. Manager Bob Melvin has discussed the idea of giving some pitchers extra days between outings to keep them fresh in the second half.
"Well I am awake," Grayposted on Twitter when the trade news broke early Thursday. Oakland later sent lefty Tommy Milone to the Twins for outfielder Sam Fuld.
Beane believes in pitching depth, and the A's sure have it. Lester joins Gray, Scott Kazmir and recently acquired Jeff Samardzija and Jason Hammel, each dealt by the Chicago Cubs on July 4.
Gomes, a fan favorite who grew up in nearby Petaluma, provides Oakland with a veteran presence that proved invaluable during the A's run to the ALWest title in 2012. The As reached the playoffs for the first time in six years.
He also was a respected clubhouse leader in Boston, which signed him'as a free agent before last season. Gomes is hitting .234 with six homers and 32 RBIs in 78 games this season.
Doss signed a two-year contract worth $1.5 million in March. He spent the last three years in Baltimore and had his most productive season in 2013. He caught 19 passes for 305 yards last season and returned 23 punts for 359 yards. His 15.6 yards-a-punt average led the NFL Without him, veteran cornerback Will Blackmon and rookie receiver Marqise Lee will split punt-return work. "It will give guys an opportunity to grow, and we've just got to continue to be smart," coach Gus Bradley said. "I think the challenge for us now is when you do lose some numbers is to not to pile up the reps on other guys. That will be the challenge for us right now. So we'll take a look at it and get a feel after we get a report from the trainers where we're at."
the field to try to compete." Mason isn't setting a timeline for picking a starting quarterback, saying all six will get work. They also have redshirt freshman Johnny McCrary, junior JoSh Grady along with freshmen Wade Freebeck and Shawn Stankavage. Mason has said a decision could go up to the season opener Aug. 28 when Temple visits. "We're trying to get everybody ready to play," Mason said. Once the Commodores decide who's throwing the ball, they will need receivers to catch. Not only is Matthews gone, second-leading receiver Jonathan Krause also left. Sophomore Jordan Cunningham with
15 catches for 123 yards is the top returner at receiver in a very young group that also features Chandler Dorrell, son of offensive coordinator Karl Dorrell. Mason signed four receivers in February, and he said 17 or 18 freshmen could play this season.
Cunningham was recruited by Mason to Stanford before choosing Vanderbilt, and he sees a high energy coach who can push people to play their best.
"He's a great guy, great coach, down to earth," Cunningham said. "He'll talk to you about anything. I think he'll definitely have us going in the right direction."

Rice's reputation has likely taken a harder hit than he has ever absorbed on the field.
"In some people's eyes, Ray can do no wrong. That's something I take pride in," he said. "I know a lot of people out there have lost respect, maybe not like me anymore. But that's my fault. I have to own that. That's my battle each day."
Rice also pleaded with his fans to make smart decisions.
"I still have kids out there wearing 27 jerseys, and I just want to tell them that please don't make the mistake I did," he said. "I always talk about one or two bad decisions and your dream can become a nightmare, and I was truly living a nightmare." Rice's teammates still support hin.
"I've known Ray for a while.
He's a great guy," linebacker Elvis Dumervil said. "We're all human, we all make mistakes." Rice realizes how many people were hurt by his actions. "That's not who I am as a man. That's not who my mom raised me to be," he said. "I let her down, I let my wife down, I let my daughter down, I let my wife's parents down, I let the whole Baltimore community down, and I got my teammates here to support me, I let my teammates down. I let so many people down because of 30 seconds of my life that I know I can't take back."
