Dean will sing the song live at a Tallahassee event Dec. 5, and the video will be featured as well during certain points of the program. With the help of

The youtube link, youtube.com/watch?v=Ck9B cqt3A8I&sns=em, allows a free view of the song and video, which is about homeless and wounded veterans. Local music fans are being encouraged to watch it in order to create buzz and also to be inspired to help suffering. veterans in some way. Stephens sent the song to Dean around the time the recent Veterans Affairs controversies were coming to light.

Defined-benefit plans, starting to invest and 'The Rockford Files


"This is Jim Rockford. At the tone, leawe your nane and number... I'll get back to you."
"The Rockford Flies"

omething special

was taken from our
generation when James Garner passed recently. Through hard work and good luck, Garner landed parts in theater productions and eventually in films. Garfier fought the Hollywood moguls for fair pay, marched for civil rights with Brando and Newman in 1963, and also starred in "Maverick" and "The Rockford Files." Jim Rockford was a moderately successful private detective who lived in a trailer on a beach in Malibu, ate tacos for breakfast on the pier, and scuffled to make a living without running afoul of the crooks or the law. Garner brought every imaginable co-star onto the show,


from Rita Moreno to Isaac Hayes, from Lou Gossett
Jr. to Lindsay
Wagner.
Rockford's
gold Pontiac Firebird was
a symbol
of modern
Marigaret mobilMcDowell ity, and the
tough-talking, wisecracking detective gave us a glimpse of a fast-paced and rapidly changing world in L.A. Jim Rockford did jail time on a false charge, and his life was different because of it. James Garner's life was even more exceptional. He suffered a difficult childhood with a family that offered little advice and no financial support. When he left home at 14, all he took with him was the dream of success.
Not all of us can live on the beach in Malibu or


star in Hollywood movies. But like James Garner, we all have dreams. Many times these dreams are relatively simple financial goals: a comfortable retirement, funding a grandchild's college tuition, or the ability to travel extensively. One thing I have learned in 20 years of offering investment advice is that it is never too late to initiate a savings and investment plan. If you're still working and can utilize your company's 401(k) opportunity, cut back on your personal spending and maximize your contributions. If you can forgo one or two frivolous expenses each week, you can plow that money into a nest egg that can work for you in retirement.
Following your financial dreams is often simply a matter of executing selfdiscipline and exercising personal will. Many of


us fail to save and invest simply because we fail to start the process. The goal of a secure retirement is beyond us, we think, so we commit nothing instead. Just get started. The more you save and invest, the more you'll want to. If you're a business owner, consider starting a defined-benefit plan if it's appropriate to your enterprise and situation. Some DB plans are designed to allow business owners to put away significant "catch-up" dollars if they haven't been able to fund a good retirement program to date. Margaret R.

Is America really the 'land of the free'?


W should be jj happy to live
--in-what is considered by most of the world- the greatest country in the world. If we don't commit a crime that will lead to incarceration, we are free to better our lives. After we consider the freedom of choice, just what does it mean to be free? There are different definitions of the word "free," but one of them is, "costing nothing in terms of money, such as a free service." It's a great feeling to go outside our homes and breathe in fresh air. Sadly, air is one of few things in life that's really free. Actually, if we happen to have a vehicle with a tire low on air, if we don't have a personal pump, we must


pay for air. In millions of homes, we receive a bill
for the other
necessary
ingredient in life,
water, every
month. If
the bill's not Thom7as paid, service incent will be disMurphy continued
and drinking
water must be purchased. When we leave our homes for work, to go on an errand, or just for pleasure, spending money is usually involved in one way or another. It's imperative that we develop a way to enhance our lives by enjoying some of the so-called "little things in life."
It's interesting how - as we grow older and wiser

- some of us realize that what we considered some of the least important things in life during our younger years became much more important later in life. There aren't many things that cost nothing and are free, but receiving love and encouragement from, and spending time with our families and friends is priceless. One lesson we should learn from having years of economic problems is how important it is to have fun with those we love and trust, without making money our No.
1 priority. The statement "the best things in life are free" has substance for many of us. When we have the finances to enjoy some of the special things life has to offer, why not take


the time to do so, because life's not promised to us, and if we can, spend some of that cash.
For those who aren't in the position to participate in some of the events our richer citizens can, remember that even though it's important, having money isn't necessarily the road map to happiness. No matter what our status might be, we should be thankful for each day weare able to breathe in the "free air."

Jackson STEM students' summer field experience atFlorida Caverns


Through the Panhandle Area Educational Corisortium's FloridaLearns STEM Scholars Project STEM Talent Development Program, talented and gifted high school juniors and seniors from small and rural districts across Florida had the opportunity to take part in locally available field site/ workplace experiences this summer. These experiences, made possible through partnerships with leaders in STEM (Science, Technology Engineering and Math) industries, such as


local businesses, agencies, the military and highereducation faculty, gave students an opportunity to actively engage in doing "real" STEM work. STEM scholars from Marianna High School took part in an 8-day experience at Florida Caverns State Park, led by park service specialist Kelly Banta and Marianna High School teacher Kathy McCrary. There they used solutions of hydrogen peroxide to re-


move mold and formations thro


caves to restore them to their pristine state. Valuable insight into potential career choices and the post secondary preparation they require, as well as the intrinsic benefits of service learning, were important outcomes for each participant. Additionally, students gained a greater appreciation for an important natural resource in their local community and the work required to maintain it so that visitors can

Florida lawmakers ordered to draw new voting map


The Associated Press

TALLAHASSEE --A Floridajudge on Friday ordered legislators to draw up a new congressional map for the state after the old one was ruled to be illegal.
Circuit Judge Terry Lewis wants the new map byAug. 15, meaning that legislators would have to hold a special session over the next two weeks to comply with the decision. Lewis said he will then consider whether to order a special election later this year under this new map.
The ruling was hailed by the groups that challenged the state's current districts as unconstitutional. But it's not known yet if the Florida Legislature will comply or whether the decision will trigger another round of legal challenges. Florida's primary election is Aug. 26. RepresentativesforHouse Speaker Will Weatherford and Senate President Don Gaetz both said Friday that they were "reviewing" the decision.
Voters in 2010 passed a "Fair Districts" amendment that says legislators cannot draw up districts to favor incumbents or a political party. Lewis ruled in early


Attorney David King, representing plaintiffs challenging the Legislature's, congressional districting map, argues during a hearing July 24 in Leon County Circuit Court in Tallahassee. Judge Terry Lewis, who ruled the state's congressional districts unconstitutional earlier this month, said he will make a prompt ruling on whether the 2014 elections can be conducted with the flawed maps.


July that two of the state's 27 districts were drawn illegally to benefit the Republican Party.
But that decision sparked a legal battle over what steps to take next. The League of Women Voters of Florida and the groups that sued the Legislature asked Lewis to adopt a new map and adjust this year's election schedule. But legislative leaders said the state's current districts


should be kept in place to avoid disrupting the 2014 elections. They also contended only the Legislature has the authority to draw new districts.
In his ruling, Lewis said he found the arguments from legislative lawyers "more sensible" and agreed that the Legislature should be responsible for the new map.
But he said he could not push off a new map until


2016. Lewis said that to do so would be telling voters "they have been deprived of the equal right of having a say in who represents their interests in Congress for two years." The judge said that after further research and evidence, it could wind up that a new map is "not legally authorized or logistically practicable. But I am not there yet ..." Lewis' decision brought a


combination of praise and condemnation. "This is a champagne moment for Florida vot.ers, who have waited too long for fairly drawn congressional districts," said Deirdre Macnab, president of the League of Women Voters of Florida. "We believe that the restoration of legitimate, representative democracy is well worth one extra trip to the polls." But U.S. Rep. Corinne


Brown, whose sprawling district from Jacksonville to Orlando will need to be redrawn, said the decision by Lewis was "not in thebest interest of Florida voters." Brown also said she remains concerned that a redrawn district will diminish the influence of minority voters. The majority of voters in Brown's current district are minorities. The league and others contended that the Republican-controlled Legislature had used a "shadow" process that allowed GOP consultants to influence how the congressional districts were drawn. They asserted that Democrats were packed into Brown's district to make surround- � ing districts more favorable to Republicans. Lewis agreed there was enough evidence to show that both Brown's district and the central Florida district that is home to U.S. Rep. Dan Webster, a Republican, were drawn in violation of the "Fair Districts" standards adopted by voters. Any efforts to redraw these two districts would likely result in changes to other districts in central Florida.

That too has been a tougher field for solo practitioners and smaller law firms.
"Tlie problem With the PI field is advertising," he said. "It's hard to compete with the Morgan and Morgans. When you're able to spend a million bucks a month, you're capturing a big audience."
Even as veteran lawyers grumble about slow business, Florida law schools chum out more than 3,000 would-be attorneys every year. The challenge is finding them jobs.
Schools accredited by the American Bar Association must file reports showing students' employment status nine months after graduation. At Florida Coastal School of Law in Jacksonville last year, the unemployment rate was 30 percent. At the Ave Maria School of Law in Naples, it was 26 percent.
Two other private schools, the University of Miami and the Stetson University College of Law in Gulfport, had far better track records. Less than 6 percent of their 2013 graduates were unemployed. However, those figures were helped by programs in which the schools themselves hire grads or temporarily pay their salaries in government or nonprofit legal jobs.
Among the 33 recent beneficiaries of Stetson's Bridge to Practice Fellowships was Jason Fraser. '


After graduating, he wrote to numerous public defenders and state attorneys. I had a couple of interviews," he said, "but for the most part I never heard from them or I'd get a letter two or three months later."
Starting in February, Stetson paid his salary for a three-month internship at a Regional Conflict Counsel office. In June, he landed the public defender's job in New Port Richey.
Mindful of the job crunch, Stetson cut the size of last fall's entering class to 229 full-time students, down from a pre-recession peak of about 280. That means fewer graduates looking for work two years from now. "I think it was a very responsible thing for Stetson to do and something we have done since 2010, when the market began to experience difficulty in the job placement area," said Christopher Pietruszkiewicz, the dean. Enrollment also dropped at Florida State University College of Law, from which Kate Zucco of St. Petersburg graduated in 2012. She applied for so many jobs, she kept track of them on a spreadsheet. Happily, Zucco found work within a few months at a firm that represents insurance companies. She likes the job, but not the "six figure" debt she owes on student loans. She also worries about


what's in store for her and other recent graduates.
"I feel like we'll have a hard time getting new jobs and moving around because there are so many kids graduating from law school who will work for less."
One big firm that has continued to hire entrylevel lawyers is Tampabased Carlton Fields Jorden Burt. But the numbers have slipped from an average of 15 a year to eight or 'fewer now.
"Demand is still contracting for legal services across the country, and what that means is that probably there is still too much supply for too little demand," said Gary Sasso, the firm's president and CEO.
Another large firm, Johnson Pope, has started hiring again after a no-growth period. However, two of its recent additions had what, Bums, the managing partner, calls "unique practical experience" before getting their law degrees.
One had been a civil engineer, the other chief operating officer of a homebuilder.
"The lawyers that I see successful are people that focus their practice in one discipline or another," Bums said. "They wind up not only rendering a higher level of service but also doing better financially." So what's the advice for those considering law school or soon to graduate? Until demand better meets


supply, Pernell of Florida A&M's law school predicts that many new lawyers will have to use their education in "nontraditional ways." Among them: working for businesses instead of law firms:"
Some could also wind up in jobs that don't require, a law degree - last year, at least 136 graduates of Florida law schools landed in such positions.
Pietruszkiewicz,Stetson's dean, advises interning, then working in a public defender, state attorney or U.S. attorney's office.
"Those aren't the same salaries as you receive working for a New York or Tampa or Orlando law firm," he said, "but it certainly provides you with the skills to then translate that into a criminal' defense practice or a civil practice."
And, he added, "there are many small towns in Florida in which general practitioners are more than welcome and ultimately very successful."
Matthew O'Brien, who graduated from Stetson last year, started his job hunt a bit slowly because he was helping his parents sell their self-storage business. He has stepped up the search - aiming for a prosecutor's job - but after numerous feelers is still looking.
'"At this point in time," he said, "I've come to the realization I'd really like to have a paycheck at some point."

W expected he'd serve in an interim capacity following the departure of then-President and CEO Art Kimbrough. The people of Jackson County should consider themselves fortunate he stuck around a while. Last week, Massey announced he would be leaving the post, having accepted a job as director of solid waste operations in Walton County. It's a good move for him, and we wish him well. However, we'd be remiss to let Massey leave without kudos for his work as Chamber of Commerce president and chief executive officer. Massey stepped in at a tumultuous time for the Chamber. Looming large was the fate of the Chamber's home in the Russ House, the historic mansion on Lafayette Street that also houses the Tourism Development Council. Kimbrough had begun negotiations with local government officials with the hope.of keeping the property as a public building, but the Russ House had been put on the open market and may well have been purchased by a private buyer. Massey worked to facilitate an agreement among the Chamber, the TDC and city and county officials to transfer ownership of the property with the TDC and the Chamber remaining there. It was, perhaps, the best possible outcome. Massey helped guide the chamber through a transitional period while maintaining the organization's offerings to its membership and uncovering bookkeeping irregularities that resulted in criminal charges against a former employee.
We appreciate Massey's service to Jackson County, to the Chamber of Commerce and its members. His contributions will endure.

Preparing for



the pot debate

America appears to have come a long way from AReefer Madness," the iconic 1930s cannabis 1"Lcautionary film.
Two states have legalized recreational marijuana. A handful of others have allowed its medical use. And if you believe the latest poll, Florida in November will join them in legalizing the weed for medicinal purposes.
It's therefore good to see local governments already preparing to deal with the expected growth in pot use.
This week Deltona city commissioners started deliberating where medicinal pot should be dispensed in their community, leaning predominantly to heavily commercial districts, and away from schools and churches. That follows passage of similar proactive measures by Flagler Beach and Ponce Inlet in May and July respectively.
It's the right thing to do, and now is the right time to do it - before any state or federal laws are loosened further.
Earlier this year the Legislature passed, and Gov. Rick Scott signed into law, a bill legalizing the dispensation of low THC strains of marijuana to certain medical patients. A more comprehensive medical marijuana initiative seems set for ratification via a November ballot initiative, Amendment 2.
Monday, a Quinnipiac Poll found 88 percent of state residents favor allowing the medical use of marijuana
- up from 82 percent in December (the poll didn't specifically ask about Amendment 2, which requires 60 percent of the vote for passage). Additionally, the poll found state voters approve of allowing adults to have small amounts of marijuana for recreational use by 55-41 percent, although that is not on the ballot.
The initiative seems so popular that workshops have already started popping up, instructing potential area business operators on everything from marijuana cultivation to its culinary uses. Still, the proposed amendment has been a source of contention in the state.
The University of Florida's agricultural extension offices have refused information-gathering calls, fearing that their instruction would directly contradict federal law and jeopardize millions in federal support for the university.
Even Florida's law enforcement community is split. Many officers, such as Volusia County Sheriff Ben Johnson and Florida Sheriffs Association President Grady Judd, have characterized the proposal as gateway legislation and a harbinger of high lawlessness. Others, such as Flagler County Sheriff Jim Manfre, have been less willing to openly oppose the ballot initiative. Even if the proposal passes, Floridians need to recognize that nearly every form of marijuana is still illegal in the state.
Some, like the convenience store owner Daytona Beach police arrested earlier this month for possessing 3,000 grams of synthetic marijuana, may see the writing on the wall and be tempted to get a head start on cornering the market.
But unless pot is fully legalized, the Cautious steps by local legislators are needed to make sure the intoxicant isn't arbitrarily available to the entire populace.

After fiasco, back to the future for death penalty?


he surreal national debate
over the death penalty
reached a climax of sorts July 23 in a prison execution chamber in Florence, Arizona. Double murderer Joseph Wood was put to death by. lethal injection shortly after his lawyers went to the Supreme Court raising questions about the drugs that would be used to kill him. The justices turned Wood down, but his attorneys were right to raise concerns. It turned out Wood's execution took two hours, as he lay unconscious on a gurney, gasping and waiting for the drugs to work. Coming after other botched lethal injections in Oklahoma and Ohio, the Wood execution gave energy to activists calling for an end not only to executions by lethal injection but by all other means as well. "The death penalty simply has no place in this country," said Brian Stull, an attorney for the ACLU'S Capital Punishment Project. "As method after method of statesponsored killing has been deemed barbaric and archaic, states are left scrambling to invent new ways to execute."
In this case, Arizona scrambled to find drugs to execute Wood because anti-death penalty activists like Stull have pressured pharmaceutical companies to stop supplying effective drugs to executioners. Still, the Wood fiasco could start a new and productive debate on capital punishment, in part because it spurred an extraordinary statement from a well-respected federal judge. Alex Kozinski, chief of the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, was one of the jurists who listened to Wood's plea for a stay of execution based on concerns about the lethal injec-

tion drugs. The court issued a stay, over Kozinski's dissent, sending the case to the Supreme Court, which ultimately allowed the execution to proceed.
Kozinski focused his dissent on the broader issue of lethal injection. Older, now-abandoned methods
- hanging, firing squads, the electric chair, the gas chamber- were all devised specifically to kill people, he wrote, and did so pretty well. But lethal injection took drugs originally intended to save lives and used them to kill.
"Subverting medicines meant to heal the human body to the opposite purpose was an enterprise doomed to failure," Kozinski wrote. Using drugs for executions was "a misguided effort to mask the brutality of executions by making them look serene and peaceful." If the United States is going to carry out executions Kozinski suggested returning to an old, highly effective method: the firing squad. "Eight or 10 large-caliber rifle bullets fired at close range can inflict massive damage, causing instant death every time," he wrote. Kozinski said he could understand pharmaceutical companies retreating from involvement in capital punishment. "I have somesympathy for the drug manufacturers," he said. "They're not in the business of


killing people. They're in the business of healing people." Gun makers, on the other hand, widely sell their products to law enforcement agencies. "We as a society accept weapons as a means of carrying out lawful violent activity," Kozinski added.
Of course, an execution by firing squad, unlike lethal injection, would involve blood. But Kozinski concluded, "If we, as a society, cannot stomach the splatter from an execution carried out by firing squad, then we shouldn't be carrying out executions at all." One side effect of the debate
over death penalty methods is that it draws attention away from the original crime. The Arizona case began in August 1989, when Wood showed up to see an ex-girlfriend, 29-year-old Debbie Dietz, at the Tucson auto body shop her family owned. Dietz's father, Eugene, was also there. Wood shot Eugene Dietz and then, as Debbie tried to help, Wood grabbed her, said, "I have to kill you, bitch," and shot her, too. Father and daughter died on the. spot. Debbie Dietz's sister, Jeanne Brown, watched it happen. AfterWood's execution, Brown reacted emotionally to observers who called the lethal injection "excruciating." "You don't know what excruciating is," she said. "Excruciating is seeing your dad lying there ,in a pool of blood, seeing your sister lying there in a pool of blood. That's excruciating. This man deserved it." Yes, he did. But how to refocus
the debate away from methods and back to justice in heinous cases like Wood's? Alex Kozinski has an idea

GOP chooses Cleveland for convention


he Republicans have made a
choice, and it's the last easy
one they will have for the next 23 months. They will hold their national political convention in Cleveland.
The last time they went to Cleveland, the Republicans faced a small insurgency. The establishment candidate was Gov. Alf Landon of Kansas, an oil millionaire who was genial and wry and, as a pillar of the Topeka business community, not much of a threatening figure to anybody. The insurgent was Sen. William Borah of Idaho, an isolationist and colorful progressive known more for what he opposed than for what he favored and probably too old to pose a real challenge; he was born only two months after the end of the Civil War. Landon prevailed by a large margin- and then lost to Franklin Roosevelt by an even larger margin.
This cycle's struggle is more complex than most, with insurgent candidates arguably dominating establishment figures in weight and decibel.
The presence of former Gov. Jeb Bush in the mix all but assures that 2016 will be another of the struggles-for-the-soul that so delight the mainstream media, complicate Republican presidential campaigns and, at times, endanger GOP nominees. Democrats had such struggles in the years between 1968 and 1992, when the world's oldest political party was barred from the presidency except for the unhappy Jimmy Carter interregnum but, since the ascendancy of Bill Clinton, the Democrats' struggles have been more about personalities than about politics.

National Perspective
This has not been the case in the Republican Party, which had a small identity crisis in the early 1950s
- resolved by the nomination of Dwight D. Eisenhower in 1952, who dispatched Sen. Robert A. Taft of Ohio - and then enjoyed a dozen years of tranquility. But tensions broke into the open in 1964 with the emergence of Sen. Barry Goldwater of Arizona and, despite their electoral success in the last'third of the 20th century, the Republicans experienced serious schisms or threats to the established order at least four other times: in 1976, 1980, 1988 and 1992. Ronald Reagan was at the heart of three of these struggles- in 1964, when his late-campaign speech on behalf of Goldwater gave new hope to conservatives amid certain disaster; in 1976, when his challenge to President Gerald Ford went all the way to the Kansas City convention and was capped by an impromptu speech in which he described the Democrats as campaigning on "a reissue ... of the thing that we have been hearing from them for the last 40 years"; and in 1980, when he prevailed against a panoply of establishment candidates, including George H.W Bush. But that wasn't the end of it. The Republicans confronted serious ideological struggles even after


Reagan's administration, for the first time in a generation, established conservatism as an attractive rival to New Deal-style liberalism.
In 1988, the struggle was between the traditionalist and evangelical wings of the party. At the New Orleans convention, the Rev. Pat Robertson addressed the session and spoke of "our solemn resolve that the children of this country will once again be allowed to pray to God in the classrooms of America." A week earlier, the Georgia Republican chairman compared religious conservatives to "the people who brought you the Salem witch trials and the Spanish Inquisition."
Four years later, the party was still at war with itself, with blood feuds between those favoring tax cuts and rivals favoring spending cuts; those who advocated libertarian tolerance of gay rights and abortion and rivals arguing for religious-based opposition to both of them. In the background were swirling controversies between isolationists and internationalists, and between protectionists and free traders. The American political mystery of our time is why the party Of social stability is so often a portrait of instability.
The Democrats no longer have a vibrant conservative wing and the Republicans have virtually no liberal wing at all. But the Republicans still have the remnants of an establishment, and its personification in 2016 may be Jeb Bush. That's why the Cleveland convention may be no repeat of 1936, a year the Republicans do not want to relive. David M. Shribman is executive editor of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.

Hendrix shows the first arrow head he found when he began collecting from area rivers in the 1960s.


Hendrix's collection recently caught the eye of researchers who came to Ocala to, study mammoth kill sites on the Silver River.
Morgan E Smith, a candidate with the Center for the Study of Early Americans at Texas A&M University, said Hendrix directed the group to sites where he found artifacts. They also toured the museum. "Alvin's collection is a


really phenomenal representation of the cultural diagnosis of the PaleoIndian in Florida," Smith said. "It's really important in archaeology to be able to work with people who have collections like Alvin's. When you get a collection that large, you can find out all kinds of things. The thing about Alvin is, he's so open. He's been very forthcoming about where he found ev-


erything, which is the way scientists and collectors should communicate." From the time he started collecting, Hendrix spent long hours numbering and categorizing each item, noting when and where they were found and what they likely were used for. He first stored the treasures in orange crates and shoved them underneath his house.
Hendrix said he received encouragement from many professionals, among them Barbara Purdy, retired professor of anthropology at the University of Florida and for-' mer curator in archaeology at the Florida Museum of Natural History.
-In a phone interview, Purdy said most amateurs fail to keep the detailed records Hendrix has. "Alvin's collection was so well-documented, I really learned a lot by studying it," Purdy said. "Because of my interest in prehistory, I was interested in his stone tool collection. I think what made Alvin make his


final decision to give most of his collection to the Silver River Museum (is that) he was living in Marion County, and they were willing to take it and catalog it. It's where it should be." In recent years, the cataloging fell to museum volunteer MontyPharmer and his wife, Martha. Pharmer, 81, a retired Air Force pilot, puts in 20 to 30 hours every month at the museum. About 75 percent of his time is dedicated to Hendrix's collection. "They asked me if I'd be interested," Pharmer said. "I jumped at the opportunity. While we were doing that large collection we did the computer work at home. My wife helped me immensely. We sorted the collection and put the information in the computer, so it's easily available to researchers. They are not only important to the Silver River Museum, it's an important bunch of Florida artifacts that date back to historical times and help to understand early Florida."

Possum Festival losing Possum Festival
S RomPagedaA


appeal for candidatesen,"t


The Associated Press

WAUSAU - Republican congressman Steve Southerland knows how to handle a possum. With a shout of "Come on, big guy, let's get going!" Southerland grabbed a marsupial by the tail Saturday and held it high over his head to the delight of hundreds gathered for the annual Possum Festival in this tiny Panhandle town. A few minutes earlier, his Democratic opponent, Gwen Graham, bid $800 for the opportunity to do the same. She was joined by her father, former Gov. and ex-Sen. Bob Graham. But missing were Republican Gov. Rick Scott and his Democratic challenger, former Gov. Charlie Crist. And Attorney General Pam Bondi also chose not to go. In fact, the only statewide candidate who attended the event was Democrat George Sheldon, who hopes to unseat Bondi. "I don't understand it," said Bob Graham. "They made a mistake. They should have come to Wausau."
What is usually a mustattend event for statewide candidates was notably lacking them this year, perhaps because candidates who now raise tens of millions of dollars focus more on television ads than making personal contact. But not attending is a missed opportunity, said Susan MacManus, a University of South Florida


political science professor who drove more than 350 miles for the festival. "A lot of media is here, free attention, good photos to show people you have connection with the grass roots and rural vote, which is always a higher turnout than urban," MacManus said. 'At a time when people are already overly saturated with TV ads, why not show you're connected with every day people, because that's what people in Florida are really searching for right now."
The festival is a celebration of opossums with a parade, a possum king and queen who are chosen for their lack of beauty in a redneck sort of way, and an auction, where possums captured locally are taken from a cage and politicians bid for the privilege of getting onstage and dangling them by their tails.
Skilled politicians know the trick of shaking the mammals so they don't rise up and bite them. Oh, and the less-fortunate possums end up in a slow cooker and are served with collard greens. Southerland and Graham said the festival, which is in the district they're fighting for, was not to be missed. "I want to meet everybody in this district that I can meet," said Gwen Graham, standing in the 91-degree sunshine. "The retail part of this is the


best part. Seeing people, hugging people. You can see how sweaty I get, because I just love it. You feel the connection." It's probably something she learned from her dad. When asked how many festivals he's attended, the former senator said, "17,181."
Sheldon, who was deputy attorney general under Bob Butterworth, said he has attended the festival several times over the years.
"Butterworth came all the time," said Sheldon, who remembers seeing former Gov. Jeb Bush here. "Regrettably, campaigns are relegated to 30-second spots as opposed to this direct retail politics. It's where you stay in touch with the real world." And yes, he has eaten a plate of possum. But not Saturday.
"I tried it in 2000. It was a rite of passage. Once you do it, you don't have to do it again," Sheldon said with a laugh.
Scott was at a field office opening in Hialeah. Crist didn't have any public events.
Southerland said this, like the Worm Gruntin' Festival in Sopchoppy in April, is a required event. "In this day in time when so many elected officials are disconnected, I think it's important as a visual. They need to know that you care about them," Southerland said. "It's a must stop."

Panhandle civil rights leader to be honored


The Associated Press

PENSACOLA - Longtime Florida civil rights leader H.K. Matthews is set to receive an honor previously given to Nelson Mandela and Coretta Scott King.
The Pensacola News Journal reported Saturday that the 86-yearold Matthews will be honored with the Gandhi, King, Ikeda Community Builders Award for his lifetime of work to advance civil rights by Atlanta's Morehouse College on Aug. 16 in a special ceremony at the Mattie Kelly Fine and Performing Arts Center in Niceville.
Matthews was a leader in the civil rights movement in the Panhandle in the 1960s and 1970s. He led sit-in protests at segregated


Pensacola lunch counters and led efforts to remove the "Rebel" mascot from the local high school. Matthews marched with Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. in Selma, Ala., in 1965. "When the call came out from Dr. King to come to Selma and join the march, I just dropped my little mop bucket and went," Matthews told the newspaper. "If I had known what I would have faced when I got there, I would have stayed here. It was bad. Horrible."
Matthews also led protests against the Escambia County Sheriffs Office in the mid-1970s after a black motorist was shot and killed by a deputy. On Feb. 24, 1975, Matthews was arrested for unlawful assembly and felony extortion. Matthews was sentenced to five years in


prison, but received clemency after serving 63 days. He was eventually pardoned.
In all, he has been arrested 35 times for nonviolent protest. "We are indebted to you for your stalwart and dedicated leadership for nonviolence and human rights," Lawrence Carter, founder of the Morehouse Interfaith Institute for Global Elhics and Reconciliation, wrote in a letter to Matthews. Matthews said it is gratifying to know he made a difference. "I was driven by seeing the injustices that prevailed during that time," said Matthews, who grew up in Snow Hill, Ala.
Matthews continues his work today from the pulpit where he preaches in Brewton, Ala.

Wedding photo bomb leads to beach brawl
GRAYTON BEACH
- Panhandle authorities say an accidental photo bomb of a wedding by a man collecting beach lounge chairs lead to a brawl between the man and the wedding party. The Northwest Florida Daily News reports that members of the wedding party, including the bride, attacked the man, who was removing his rental lounge chairs from a stretch of Panhandle beach at the end of the day.
The man accidentally showed up in the background of some wedding photos.
Witnesses told the Walton County Sheriff's Office that words were exchanged between the man and the members of the wedding party before members of the wedding party began to attack the man.
The Sheriff's Office said that the man declined to file charges against any members of the wedding party.

Feds grant Fla. 3-year
Medicaid renewal TALLAHASSEE - The federal government has granted a three-year


renewal of Florida's Medicaid managed-care program.
About 3 million Floridians - more than half are children - are enrolled in the program, which has been rolling out statewide over the past few months. Under Medicaid privatization, the state gives insurance companies a set amount of money each month for patient care, giving the insurer broad authority to decide which doctors they can see and what treatments can be prescribed.
The initial waiver from the federal government only lasts for three years. This will allow the program to continue through 2017. State health officials predict privatization will save$2 billion over the three-year waiver period.

Judge removed after
erratic behavior
KEYWEST- A circuit judge in the Florida Keys has filed for medical leave after his erratic behavior on the bench prompted courtroom deputies to remove him from the court during a trial. The Florida Keys Citizen reported Saturday that Circuit Judge Tegan Slaton was removed from the bench Friday. Officials said the judge appeared incoherent and disheveled during the court proceedings.


Teagan has previously fallen asleep during a court a hearing. The judge later told the newspaper that he fell asleep because of medication he had taken to deal with gastrointestinal problems and other medical issues.
Robert Cintron, Slaton's campaign manager, told the newspaper that Slaton had filed for medical leave. Cintron declined to discuss Slaton's upcoming judicial race, saying he was focused instead on his friend's health.

I sentenced in
smuggling venture
MIAMI - A judge has sentenced to prison a Bahamian national who called 911 when the boat carrying him and over a dozen other migrants capsized, killing four Haitian women.
George Lewis pleaded guilty in May to illegally re-entering the U.S. after being deported. Prosecutors agreed to drop other charges of smuggling resulting in death.
Lewis told U.S. Pistrict Judge Kathleen Williams on Friday that he paid smugglers to return him to relatives in Florida. His attorney disputed prosecutors' assertion that Lewis assisted the boat's captain in the smuggling venture.

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
This July 10 photo shows a water sample drawn from Lake Erie aboard Ohio State University's research vessel. Scientists gathered at OSU's Stone Laboratory near Put-In-Bay, Ohio, to discuss the 2014 algae forecast for Western Lake Erie. Ohio Gov. John Kasich declared a state of emergency in northwest Ohio, where about 400,000 people are being warned not to drink the water. Officials Issued the warning Saturday after tests revealed the presence of toxins, possibly from algae, on Lake Erie.


Don't drink the water,



says 4th-largest Ohio city


The Associated Press

TOLEDO, Ohio - Toxins possibly from algae on Lake Erie fouled the water supply of the state's fourthlargest city Saturday, forcing officials to issue warnings not to drink the water and the governor to declare a state of emergency as worried residents descended on stores, quickly clearing shelves of bottled water.
"It looked like Black Friday," said Aundrea Simmons, who stood in a line of about 50 people at a pharmacy before buying four cases of water. "I have children and elderly parents. They take their medication with water." The city advised about 400,000 residents in Toledo, most of its suburbs and a few areas in southeastern Michigan not to brush their teeth with or boil the water because that would only increase the toxin's concentration. The mayor also warned that children should not shower or bathe in the water and that it shouldn't be given to pets.
Toledo issued the warning just after midnight after tests at one treatment plant showed two sample readings for microsystin above the standard for consumption. Algae blooms during the summer have become more frequent and troublesome around the western end of Lake Erie, the shallowest of the five Great Lakes.
The algae growth is fed by phosphorus, mainly from farm fertilizer runoff and sewage treatment plants,


leaving behind toxins that have contributed to oxygen-deprived dead zones where fish can't survive. The toxins can kill animals and sicken humans. Scientists had predicted a significant bloom of the blue-green algae this year, but they didn't expect it to peak until early September.
Gov. John Kasich's emergency order issued Saturday allowed the state to begin bringing water into the Toledo area. Large containers were being filled with water at a prison near Columbus and trucked about 130 miles north to Toledo, said Joe Andrews, a spokesman for the Ohio Department of Public Safety.
The state also asked major grocery chains to divert as much water as they can to northwest Ohio, Andrews said.
As truckloads of water came in from across the state, Toledo leaders set up distribution centers at schools around the city, limiting families to one case of bottled water. Some stores were receiving new shipments of water and puttinglimits on how much people can buy.
"We're going to be prepared to make sure people are not without water," said Toledo Mayor D. Michael Collins. He said the city hopes to know Saturday night how long the warning will stay in place, and he pleaded with residents not to panic. There were no reports yet of people becoming sick from drinking the water, Collins said.


Sample of water were flown to the federal and state Environmental Protection Agency offices in Cincinnati and Columbus and a university in Michigan for additional testing, officials said.
Police officers were called to stores as residents lined up to buy bottled water, bags of ice and flavored water. "People were hoarding it. It's ridiculous," said Monica Morales, who bought several cases of bottled water before the store sold out of water a half-hour after opening. Stores in cities up to 50 miles away were reporting shortages of bottled water. Some neighboring communities that aren't connected to Toledo's water system were offering their water to people who brought their own bottles and containers. Operators of water plants all along Lake Erie, which supplies drinking water for 11 million people, have been concerned over the last few years about toxins fouling their supplies. Almost a year ago, one township just east of Toledo told its 2,000 residents not to drink or use the water coming from their taps. That was believed to be the first time a city has banned residents from using the water because of toxins from algae in the lake..
Most water treatment plants along the western Lake Erie shoreline treat their water to combat the algae. Toledo spent about $4 million last year on chemicals to treat its water and combat the toxins.

cently appeared at the southern border without their parents. Many say they're escaping gangs back home and hoping to reunite with family. Mejia Romero's mother came to the U.S. when he was just 2, fleeing an abusive boyfriend; he remembers the joy of embracing her eight years later after his arrival. "I feel sad for them," he says of the kids now trying to enter the U.S. "They remind me a lot of when I was younger. ... I feel like it's my life."
The flood of kids at the borders has ignited a political firestorm, with the House late Friday passing strict measures that the president quickly condemned. With the Senate already on a five-week summer break, a divided Congress headed home unable to agree on solutions for what has been called a "humanitarian crisis."


The number of child asylum cases in recent months, though, has been relatively small.
Last week, the director of the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services told a congressional hearing his agency had received more than 1,500 asylum applications from unaccompanied minors from October to June - just about 4 percent of the total. Most kids, though, don't file for asylum for many months after their arrival.
Some critics say it has become too easy to win asylum and the standards for demonstrating persecution are too lenient. A person has to demonstrate a well-founded fear of persecution for reasons of race, religion, nationality, political opinion or membership of a social group. Kids seeking asylum based on fear of gangs often have trouble convincing


immigration judges that's the kind of persecution that warrants protection under U.S. law. "The challenge that we face is the kinds of claims these kids are presenting," says Wendy Young, president of Kids in Need of Defense, a group that provides pro bono lawyers for unaccompanied refugee and immigrant children in the U.S. "The law is very murky. ... To these kids, they don't care if it's the military who's holding a gun to their head or a gang member. They're fleeing for their lives." What is clear is these kids won't prevail alone, says Judy London, an immigration lawyer in Los Angeles who has represented many children. "It's an impossible system to navigate without a lawyer," she says. The cases, she adds, are extraordinarily timeconsuming, with lawyers spending dozens of hours


just getting kids to open up about their traumatic experiences.
The importance of lawyers was borne out in a recent report by the 'ransactional Records Access Clearinghouse at Syracuse University that surveyed more than 100,000 cases of unaccompanied children in immigration court from 2005 to the end of June. It found that in almost half the cases .where kids were represented by a lawyer, the judge allowed them to stay. In contrast, nine of 10 kids who appeared without a lawyer were ordered deported.
Some -asylum cases are resolved in a few years; others can take much longer.
As Mejia Romero has grown from boy to man, his lawyers have kept his bid alive, despite numerous setbacks, starting with a denial by the immigration judge in 2007.

Hate-crime case resurrects racial wounds in NYC


The Associated Press

NEW YORK - Yitzhak Shuchat, a white member of a civilian patrol group, and Andrew Charles, the black son of a police officer, came face to face In 2008 in a neighborhood with a history of racial strife - that much is certain,
But six years later, the circumstances of the encounter in the Crown Heights section of Brooklyn remain murky, even as prosecutors pursue charges against 28-year-old Shuchat alleging he attacked Charles because of his race. Shuchat's supporters in the neighborhood's Orthodox Jewish community have reacted with dismay over what they call a hate crime investigation gone awry.

explain why they're treating the case as a racial incident, said Shuchat's attorney, Paul Batista. In other hate-crime cases, there are typically racial slurs or other clear evidence of bias. "I don't know where the


hate element' came in," Batista said, "Yitzy has no racial animus toward anyone."
Asked in a recent television interview to describe their encounter, Charles responded, "They attacked us, and that's about it." He didn't elaborate.
The Brooklyn district attorney's office declined to comment.
The case resurrected old wounds in Crown Heights, where violence exploded in 1991 after a black child, Gavin Cato, was accidentally hit and killed by a car in a Jewish motorcade. A group of blacks responded by stabbing to death a rabbinical student from Australia who was walking down the street. Over the years, the ten, sions in Crown Heights have dissipated as the neighborhood has become more gentrified. But occasional violence linked to race or religion has persisted - and can still stir up old fears.
In 2008, the New York Police Department increased patrols in Crown Heights after the incident with Charles and a report that a Jewish teenager was robbed and beaten by black kids.
According to police,


Charles was walking with a black friend when they were confronted by a white man who peppersprayed Charles. Then an SUV pulled up and a white passenger - later identified by police as Shuchat
-jumped out and hit him with a nightstick. Authorities concluded Shuchat and the other man were volunteers with the civilian patrol, Shmira, and convened a grand jury to look into the matter- a move criticized by the Jewish community but welcomed by black leaders. "You can't have a group, whether it's the Bloods, Crips or Shmira, acting like vigilantes," then-District Attorney Charles Hynes told a local Jewish newspaper.
After learning he was wanted as a suspect, Shuchat fled to Israel through Canada amid claims that he couldn't get a fair trial. He was indicted on the hate-crime charges a few weeks later, after prosecutors concluded bias was the only motive. The defense doesn't dispute that Shuchat had a run-in with Charles. But it says Shuchat was responding to a radio call reporting that two black men were throwing rocks and curs-


ing at Jews. It also claims Charles wasn't harmed despite being taken to a hospital.
"It was an argument between two people on the street," Batista said. "There's nothing more to it."
Shuchat started a family in Israel before Brooklyn prosecutors sought his extradition. While he fought it, Crown Heights Jewish leaders circulated letters of support and started a defense fund. "Yitzy's young family does not deserve to be torn apart by a prosecution out to pander to rabble-rousers in the community," wrote the Crown Heights Jewish Community Council.
Community activist Taharka Robinson, who's advising Charles' family, said Shuchat's decision to 'leave the country was telling.
"I don't believe anyone would flee and go through Canada to get into Israel if they did not engage in an act that injured someone," he said.
Shuchat's supporters see the extradition as an opportunity for vindication. "I'm glad he's back so things can be cleared up," Hikind said.


Fallen soldier's son to get lost medal, answers


The Associated Press

CHICAGO - John Trinca couldn't remember the name of the soldier who died right next to him minutes after they met during World War I, and all Thomas Bateman Jr. knew of his father's death was that it happened in 1945 in the Philippines.The two will meet for the first time Sunday thanks largely to Tom McAvoy, who made good on a quest to return a lost war medal he found as a child in Chicago that had only the recipient's engraved name as a clue: Thomas Bateman. . This year - 69 years after a bullet from a Japanese machine gun killed Pvt. Thomas Bateman - their stories intersected for the first time, giving them answers to questions that tugged at them for years. At this weekend's ceremony, the fallen soldier's son will receive the lost Purple Heart his father paid for with his life.
"I had a newspaper article that my grandmother kept that said he was killed, and that's about allI knew,"


said Bateman, 69, who was just shy of his first birthday when his father was killed. The men learned of one another thanks to Purple Hearts Reunited, a foundation that works to return the medals to their recipients or their recipients' families. Zachariah Fike, a


Vermont National Guard captain who was awarded the medal after he was wounded in Afghanistan in 2010, has managed to reunite about 100 Purple Hearts with their rightful owners since starting the foundation.
There's a story behind


each of the medals that have been returned, but none quite like that of Bateman, who was an infantryman with the 21st Infantry Regiment, 24th Infantry Division.
"To find the guy who found the medal, the guy with (Bateman) when he


died and the son," said Fike, who will present the medal to Bateman on Sunday. "This one sends chills."
What is known about this medal begins in the 1950s, when McAvoy spotted it on the basement floor of his family's Chicago apart-


ment building while helping a janitor sort garbage. He gave it to his mother and forgot about it. Then, about seven years ago, one of his brothers mentioned that he found a Purple Heart while going through their mother's belongings after her death.

George has surgery on leg


The Associated Press

LAS VEGAS - Indiana Pacers All-Star Paul George has undergone successful surgery on his broken right leg and is expected to remain in the hospital for about three days. The 6-foot-10 George had an operation at Sunrise Hospital to repair the open tibia-fibula


fracture, USA Basketball said in a statement early Saturday morning. Dr. David Silverberg, Dr. Joseph Yu and USA Basketball team physician Riley Williams, were present for the surgery, the release said.
George suffered the gruesome right leg injury late in the U.S. national team's intrasquad scrimmage Friday night. He


leaped to contest a fast-break layup by James Harden with 9:33 left in the fourth quarter and his leg smashed against the bottom of the backboard stanchion and crumpled.
Trainers immediately ran onto the floor and after roughly 10 minutes of stoppage, George

Garcia clings


to 3-shot lead


over McIlroy

The Associated Press

AKRON, Ohio- Sergio Garcia still had a threeshot lead when the third round finally ended Saturday at the Bridgestone Invitational. British Open champion Rory McIlroy made it feel a little smaller.
Garcia, who stretched his lead to as many as six shots before thunderstorms halted play for just over three hours, closed with three good pars for a 3-under 67. Playing in the group ahead of him, Mcllroy finished with two big birdies for a 66 to get into the final group.
That sets up a replay of the British Open two weeks ago, only with the roles reversed. Rickie Fowler also was in the hunt at Hoylake, though he took himself out of the picture on the final hole. He went from the left trees to a plugged lie in the bunker, having to brace his right good against the side of a hill. He left it in the bunker and wound up with a double bogey for a 72, putting him 10 shots behind. This isn't a two-man race to the $1.4 million prize.
Marc Leishman had a 68 and was five shots behind, while Adam Scott returned from the rain delay carrying only his long putter, the only weapon he needed to convert one last birdie for a 65 that at least left him with a slim chance. He was six shots behind, along with Keegan Bradley
(68) and Justin Rose (70).

Jaguars' Brewster to snap after 2-year wait


The Associated Press

JACKSONVILLE - It might seem like the Jacksonville Jaguars have little faith in center Mike Brewster. They passed on the former Ohio State standout numerous times in the 2012 NFL draft before signing him as an undrafted free agent. They talked veteran Brad Meester into sticking around for a 14th season in 2013. They signed Pro Bowler Alex Mack to a five-year, $42 million offer sheet in April that Cleveland quickly matched.
Thby even gave journeyman Jacques McClendon, who has been waived seven times the last three years, repetitions with the first-team offense this week.
Brewster, who has yet to take a snap in a regular-season game, was mostly unfazed by it all. "I want. to be pushed, and they want to push me," Brewster said Friday, adding that he has been told to


not "read into any of it as the wrong message.Instead, Brewster expects to be the team's opening-day starter and long-term option at center. "I would have loved to started at center my first two years," Brewster said. "But I think at this point in time, I'm physically and mentally the most ready. I was a little raw still, my technique and stuff. I've definitely grown up a lot. "I'd rather start two years later and be very effective than start too early and not be really good at what I want to do long term." The Jaguars certainly hope Brewster becomes a solid piece of a revamped line.
Jacksonville moved Luke Joeckel, the second overall pick in the 2013 draft, to left tackle last season, signed guard Zane Beadles to a fiveyear, $30 million deal in March and drafted guard Brandon Linder in the third round of May's NFL draft.


Along with Brewster and right tackle Austin Pasztor, they could be the key to helping Jacksonville improve one of the league's worst offenses.
"I think people are going to be surprised this year," Brewster said. "We won't be."
Many were surprised Brewster went undrafted.
He was a four-year starter with the Buckeyes, a team captain, a firstteam All-American as a junior and a finalist for the prestigious Remington Award, which is given annually to the nation's best center. Despite the accolades and some projections that he would be an early round pick in the draft, Brewster returned for his senior year. It wasn't his best decision. Coach Jim Tressel abruptly resigned in May, and the Buckeyes finished 6-6 under interim coach Luke Fickell.

Tannehul shines in Dolphins' intras quad scrimmage


I T'L SUUII LU L
Miami Dolphins head coach Joe Phlilbin gestures during training camp In Davie on Wednesday.


The Associated Press

MIAMI GARDENS - Miami Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill was effective during an intrasquad scrimmage Saturday at Sun Life Stadium., But the team got a scare when starting tight end Charles Clay left the field early with a leg injury and did not return. Tannehill completed 15 of 27 passes unofficially for 139 yards, two touchdowns and a 2-point conversion and got the offense into the end Zone on the opening drive.
The third-year QB got better protection from an offensive line still in flux and looked


comfortable throwing on the run and getting the ball out fast in new offensive coordinator Bill Lazor's offense.
"That's our offense, all timing, so we don't want to be back there holding the ball," said Thnnehill, who was sacked a league-high 58 times last season. "We're going to push the ball downfield but it's still timing. That's the big emphasis and you can't be back there holding the ball for 3 or 4 seconds and not expect to give up a lot of sacks." Running back Lamar Miller, who has had his best training camp so far, caught one of the touchdown passes and also showed off his speed and elu-


siveness on a few runs. He rushed for 36 yards on six carries and caught two passes for 27 yards and the touchdown.
The defense started off slow, but picked it up as the scrimmage progressed with sacks by Cameron Wake, Dannell Ellerbe, Dion Jordan, Derrick Shelby and Terrence Fede.
Roolde linebacker Jordan Tripp had the play of the day with a 73-yard fumble return for a touchdown. He also forced the fumble and Cortland Finnegan and Jimmy Wilson each had an interception.

Justified payback


Iwas recently notified that I've been selected
to participate in an
upper Atlantic Coast swan hunt later this year. It's my second opportunity. Last time I was unsuccessful.
Looking back, it's hard to believe I was ever attracted to waterfowling of any kind. Long before I shouldered a shotgun or sat in a blind, I had troubles innumerable with ducks, geese and swans. On the other hand, maybe that's why. Perhaps being a waterfowler affords me a measure of revenge.
I earlier told the story of an encounter with a Canada goose that viciously attacked me as I attempted to free it from a snarl of fishing line. In the end I was a successful Good Samaritan, but only after being pecked, bitten, and nearly beaten to death by flailing wings.
That gander showed no gratitude whatsoever and never thanked me. I harbor no animosity, though. He was, after all, native wildlife and I am charitable. There are other encounters, however, about which I am not so magnanimous. These involve imported species, critters having no business here in the first place. Long ago I worked as a lifeguard at a recreational facility in southeast Alabama. For some unfathomable reason, the property owners thought free-roaming Muscovy ducks added to the area's aesthetic value. Lord knows why. Muscovy ducks ugly. They are also very, very messy and can be neither house nor pooldeck broken. One day, as I sat in my "high chair" at poolside,

watching pretty girls jiggle and giggle while ugly girls and children risked drowning unobserved, I heard a shout from below.
"Hey, lifeguard!" piped an emphatic voice.
I looked down and saw him, a tough little country boy; scrawny, wiry, with a too-big swimsuit hanging off his hips and reaching his knees.
"What?" I sharply
retorted, miffed at being distracted. His reply was short and to the point.
"Y'all need to do somethin' about all this duck @#$%!," he exclaimed, seconds before diving into the pool to wash about two pounds of the offending matter off his feet. I ignored and forgot the incident until the following day, when my boss (who'd also received a complaint) put me to work with shovel, broom, and water hose. Lifeguarding glamorous? Think again. Years prior, as a child of nine or ten, I attended a Bible school picnic on these same grounds. That day I won for two whole hours the fickle heart of a pretty little girl. She had long pigtails and smelled wonderful, like a banana sandwich. She kissed me once on the cheek and I was smitten. What attracted her to a pudgy, big-eared lout like me I do not know. Perhaps it was the aroma of potted meat.


I escorted this latest love of my life to an old abandoned kiddie pool at the eastern edge of the grounds. The pool was the domain of a huge mute swan, a big old cob. Together, my pig-tailed angel and I tossed potato chips to the big bird, docile as a parakeet until the last golden flake morsel went down his neck and into his craw. Life lesson: Never feed potato chips to a big male mute swan unless you possess an unlimited supply. As we fled in terror mere inches ahead of the belligerent avian, my sweetheart's high-pitched scream was heard above the din of a throng of noisy swimmers. My own was even higher, momentarily drowning out the jukebox. If Hans Christian Andersen had met that swan, The Ugly Duckling would not be classic children's literature. I realize I'm being immature, but to this day I have an unutterable loathing for mute swans and Muscovy ducks. Just as immaturely, I have a tendency to transfer this hatred to the wild waterfowl I pursue. In my mind's eye I see not incoming mallards, widgeon, or teal. I see instead the hideous silhouettes of pooping Muscovies and homicidal swans. It's awfully hard to stay within the legal limit. And now, wonder of wonders, I've been drawn again for a swan hunt. I'm going to write the host state's Department of Game and Inland Fisheries inquiring about the legality of potato chips as bait.
I have all my fingers crossed. Payback will be sweet.


Fishing Report


Lake Seminole
Bass are fair. For about an hour after daylight, it is possible to catch some pretty good fish by throwing topwater baits on the flats.
The best spots are areas where submerged hydrilla lies in 3 to 5 feet of water a short distance from a deep-water dropoff.
When the sun is high, move to the creeks and fish deeper hydrilla beds in 15 to 20 feet of water. Texas-rig worms pulled through the grass are working well.
Hybrids are good early and late on the flats. Use topwater plugs or crankbaits when they surface.
Crappies are slow. Look for them on channel ledges at 10 to 15 feet and fish minnows.
Bream are very good on shallow-water sandbars. Catfish are slow, but some channel cats have been taken on stinkbaits along the river channels.
Lake Eufaula
Bass are fair. Smaller fish can be caught early


in the day on buzzbaits and other topwater offerings. Look for grassy areas on the main lake for the best topwater bite. The best bass fishing remains on the river channel ledges.
Look for water 10 to 15 feet deep and fish large, deep-running crankbaits for the best results. Jigs and Texas-rig worms may also pay dividends. Hybrids are good and schooling early and late over the ledges. There is a lot of surface activity from multiple fish schools. Catch these fish with a shad-imitating crankbait.
Crappies are fair. Ledges in 15 to 20 feet of water have been giving up some pretty good fish in moderate numbers.
Bream are good. Even a few hefty shellcrackers have been taken. Use red wigglers.
Lake Andrews/ Chattahoochee River
Catfish have been good on the river of late. Though it is too hot for many anglers to brave the daytime tempera-


tures, several good catfish catches are reported by night fishermen, primarily anglers fishing the banks near the tailwaters of both dams.
Good numbers of pansize fish are reported. Larger individual cats may be caught while anchored downstream from the tailwaters. Use shad, cut bait, worms, or frozen shrimp.
Bass are slow.
The best largemouth bite comes on topwater baits very early in the morning. Work the banks and slowwater areas with something very noisy, such as a Torpedo or Devils Horse.
Bream are fair on crickets and worms. Drop-fish deep water along steep banks for the best results. Bluegills will make up most of the catch.

Generation schedules, pool levels, and other such information for area waterways may be obtained by calling toll-free 1-888-771-4601. Follow the recorded instructions and access the touch-tone for the Apalachicola River System.


George
From Page 1B
was taken out of the arena on a stretcher. With players looking visibly upset, coach Mike Krzyzewski then announced to the crowd that the scrimmage would not be finished out of respect to George and his family.
On Saturday morning, Larry Bird, the Pacers president of basketball operations, issued an updated statement saying it's too early to starttalking about George's expected return. "We are hopeful at some point next week Paul will return to Indianapolis to continue his recovery," Bird said. "There is no question about the impact on our team but our goal is to be as strongwilled and determined as Paul will be in coming back. Our franchise has had setbacks in its history but has demonstrated the abilities to recover. Paul will provide the example of that off the court and it is up to the rest of us to provide that example on the court. Any discussion regarding the future of our team would be inappropriate at this time. Our focus is solely on Paul and doing whatever we can to help." Bird also said the Pacers are committed to helping the national team give basketball a global reach. "This is a first for us in USA Basketball, to have something like this take place," USA Basketball chairman Jerry Colangelo said. "It's a tough situation for our entire organization, the coaches, the players. Very, very emotional. There's no way the game could have gone on under the circumstances."
Doctors estimate a full recovery could take as much as 18 months. Dr. Patrick Kersey, who treated Louisville guard Kevin Ware when he sus-, tained a similar injury during the NCAA tournament regional finals in 2013, said George will likely need 6 to 12 weeks to recover from surgery and another 6 to 10 weeks to get back to a normal walking gait. Kersey is not treating George. A complete recovery, Kersey said, normally takes 12 to 18 months, though the fact he is an elite athlete in top shape could speed up that timeframe. The hardest part for the Pacers might be keeping George off the court once he thinks he's ready.

"It was a hard year," Brewster said. "It was the first time I ever failed in my life. I just wanted to come back my senior year and help the team, but we were awful. I was playing with all freshmen, and we got blitzed three out of four downs. "It was crazy." The drafted was an even bigger headscratcher for Brewster. He figured Ohio State's record would affect his draft stock, but he never anticipated he would get passed over so many times.
'It hurt my pride," he said. "But I was never like, 'Oh, man, it's going to be hard to do it.' I know what I have."
He chose to sign with Jacksonville because of Meester's uncertain future, made the team as an undrafted rookie and even started seven games at guard in 2012. When M~ester decided to play another season in 2013, Brewster was

"It was a lot of fun finally getting out there for a little live football," Wake said. "It was nice getting to tackle and actually participate in series and drives where whatever happens counts versus just the coach telling you what happens next. You actually had a return on your investment as far as your work. We saw a lot of good plays from the offense and the defense so it was a good step in the right direction."
Tight end Dion Sims caught four passes for 27 yards, one touchdown and a 2-point conversion and rookie wide receiver Jarvis Landry caught two passes for 40 yards and a touchdown from Pat Devlin.


"It's a challenge because (athletes) want to push the envelope always," Kersey said. "The question that is already being asked this morning is how quickly can he get back. He needs to heal. First, he has to get back to a normal life, then his body needs to work in an efficient way and once those pieces are in place, he can start training." George was considered a lock to make the final 12-man roster for the World Cup of Basketball that starts later this month in Spain.
"Thanks everybody for the love and support," he wrote on Twitter. "I'll be ok and be back better than ever!!. Love y'allf'"
The Americans planned to reduce the 20-player pool to 14 or 15 players Saturday, but put off those plans after George's injury.
"Everything's on hold right and it should be," Krzyzewski said. "It would be so inappropriate for us to talk about anything else when there's a serious injury like this." The defending champion U.S. team had already been weakened by player losses. Forwards Kevin Love, Blake Griffin, LaMarcus Aldridge and NBA Finals MVP Kawhi Leonard had all pulled out in recent weeks.
Krzyzewski and Colangelo refused to discuss the roster after the game, saying they didn't even know when they would make roster reductions. ' As an organization, we're just going to let a little bit of time go by here before we address anything like rosters, all that stuff," Colangelo said. "It seems so unimportant in the big scheme of things when you have something like this take place. It puts things in perspective." George would have been a candidate to start for the Americans alongside Kevin Durant. The two, along with Harden, spent the week playing in 1-on-1 competitions after practice, pushing one another while building chemistry leading up to Friday night's game. George led the Pacers to the best record in the Eastern Conference before they were eliminated by Miami in the Eastern Conference finals. The Americans have'to be down to 12 players before they open the tournament on Aug. 30. They are scheduled to take the next week off before reconvening in Chicago for their next practice on Aug. 14.


stuck in a backup role again. He ended up starting three games at guard before breaking his left ankle and finishing the season on injured reserve. Still, Brewster had plenty to look forward to after Meester called it quits. His optimism didn't last long. Jacksonville tried to lure Mack away from the Browns by offering him $26 million guaranteed - $7 million more than any other center in football.
Brewster said he was upset. "I can't beat a guy out that's getting paid 40 million dollars. There's not going to be any competition there," Brewster said." It's done. And I didn't really want to play guard again." It turned out to be much ado about nothing as Cleveland matched Jacksonville's offer, preventing Mack from switching teans. It also left Brewster in line to be a starter- finally. "Brew has done an awesome job," interim offensive line coach Luke Butkus said. "I'm excited to see him strictly play center for us."


After taking Sunday off, Miami will return to practice in Davie in preparation for Friday's preseason opener at the Atlanta Falcons.

Baseball: Reds-Marlins call right, took too long


The Associated Press

NEWYORK - Major League Baseball says it got
the replay call right in ruling that the Miami Marlins catcher blocked the plate, but it took too long. The disputed play happened Thursday night in the Cincinnati Reds' 3-1 victory over Miami. The score was 1-1 in the top of the eighth. Initially, the plate umpire called Cincinnati's Zack Cozart out. The 6-minute, 10-second review using the instant replay system over-ruled the call and extended the inning. Ryan Ludwick delivered a two-run single to help the Reds win. MLB said the catcher "did not provide a lane to the runner and hindered his path to the plate without possession of the ball." The statement added that the "exorbitant length" of the review was more than three times the season average and "must be avoided in the Ifuture."

Browns' Gordon meets


with NFL on appeal


THE ASSOCIATED PRESS FILE
NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell speaks at a press conference at the NFL's spring meeting In Atlanta on May 20. Goodell defended the two-game suspension of Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice on Friday.



Goodell defends 2-game


suspension of Ray Rice


The Associated Press

CANTON, Ohio - NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell defended the league on Friday against criticism that it was too lenient in suspending Ray Rice two games for his "horrible mistake."
"We just can't make up the discipline," Goodell said. "It has to be consistent with other cases. And it was in this matter."
Goodell stressed that the Baltimore Ravens' running back has assumed responsibility for his conduct, has no history of assault and is following a court order to enter a diversionary program following his domestic violence arrest. "We've dealt with it in a serious manner, and we're very confident that this young man understands where he is and what he needs to do going forward," Goodell said. "I think what's important here is Ray has taken responsibility for this. He's been accountable for his actions. He recognizes he made a horrible mistake that is unacceptable by his standards, by our standards. And he's got to work to re-establish himself." Goodell spoke a day before the Pro Football Hall of Fame induction ceremony. It was his first op-


portunity to answer questions regarding Rice since the league disciplined him July 24.
A day earlier, Rice apologized at training camp in his first comments since the suspension. He called his actions "totally inexcusable" and acknowledged he must live with this for the rest of his life. The six-year veteran will miss the season opener against Cincinnati on Sept. 7 and the Sept. 11 game against Pittsburgh. Rice allegedly struck then-fiancee Janay Palmer, now his wife, on Feb. 15 in Atlantic City, New Jersey. The 27-year-old player has been accepted into a diversion program and upon completion could result in the charges being expunged.
Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisbe'iger was suspended six games in 2010 after being accused of sexually assaulting a 20-yearold college student. That suspension was eventually reduced to four games. Goodell said, unlike Roethlisberger, Rice had not had off-field problems before.
"If it's a first offense, someone who's had a strong background of being very responsible in the community, doing the right things and not violating other policies or


anything else that reflect poorly on the NFL, then we would take that into account," Goodell said. 'And when there's a pattern, we also take that into account on the other side." Many critics contend Rice's suspension is insufficient when compared to longer suspensions for players who violate the league's substance abuse policy. Goodell noted there is a policy in place to determine punishment based on the number of times a player tests positive.
"You have to respond to facts here. You have a lot of people voicing their opinions," Goodell said. "But I think it's important to understand that this is a young man who made a terrible mistake." Goodell also stressed that Rice acknowledged he was wrong and promised to speak out against domestic violence. The commissioner said it was important he had the chance to meet with both the player and Palmer.
"What I want to see is success stories," Goodell said. "I want to see people, when they make a mistake, I want to see them take responsibility, be accountable for it and make a difference going forward. I hope that's what Ray Rice is going to do."


The Associated Press

BEREA, Ohio -As his teammates sweated through another training camp practice, Josh Gordon was in a NewYork office building where his career - and Cleveland's season - were in jeopardy. Gordon met Friday with NFL officials to appeal a possible indefinite suspension for violating the league's substance abuse policy. Gordon's attorney, Maurice Suh, is expected to argue that Gordon tested positive for marijuana because of secondhand smoke, a defense they planned to enhance with witnesses.
Gordon has not been at training camp the past two days. Cleveland coach Mike Pettine said he didn't know if the Pro Bowler will be on the field for Saturday's scrimmage in Akron.


The Browns are eager to resolve the matter. Gordon is the team's top playmaker and led the league in yards receiving last season.
Commissioner Roger Goodell, speaking at the Hall of Fame in Canton, Ohio, said a decision will be based on the information at the hearing. "Josh is going through a process right now, and I'm not part of that process," Goodell said. "At some point in time I may have an opportunity to be involved, and when I am, I look forward to meeting him."
Gordon was suspended two games last season for a drug violation. Separate from his appeal, Gordon could still face league discipline under the league's personal-conduct policy for his arrest last month on a DUI charge in Raleigh, North Carolina.

NFL Brief


Beny returns, Commins
out for Chiefs
ST. JOSEPH, Mo.-The Kansas City Chiefs received good news on the injury to All-Pro safety Eric Berry. Berry, who left Thursday's training camp practice with what the team said was a sore ankle, has a right heel injury according to team spokesman Ted Crews.
Berry did not practice Friday, but was observed walking without a noticeable limp.


"There's just letting him have a few days just to let that relax," Crews said. The news, however, isn't as good surrounding second-year defensive back Sanders Commings. "He had very similar to a high ankle sprain, but to the extreme where he needed surgery to repair that high ankle sprain," Chiefs head athletic training Rick Burkholder said.
'"As his foot externally rotated on the play, he fractured his fibula."

Alabama opens with QB battle, suspensions


The Associated Press

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. -Alabama opened preseason camp with a quarterback competition, several suspended players and a focus on rebounding from a pair of season-ending defeats.
The Crimson Tide veterans hit the practice field Friday with starting nose guard Brandon Ivory, fellow defensive lineman Jarran Reed and linebacker Tim Williams suspended for violating team rules, but also with a prominent newcomer throwing passes.
Quarterback Jacob Coker made his practice debut after transferring from Florida State and arriving this summer. He and last year's backup Blake Sims are vying to replace 2013 Heisman Trophy finalist AJ McCarron, but Tide coach Nick Saban said they're in no rush to pick a starter for the Aug. 30 opener against West Virginia. Saban, who worked the young players in a second session, said he's looking primarily for decision-making, accuracy and leadership from the candidates.
"And it's going to take some time and some repetition and giving some guys some opportunity to

be able to sort that out," he said. "We're not going to be in any hurry to try to make a prediction about what's going to happen at that position. We can't. "As anxious as everybody is to know and as anxious as everybody is to find out, we can't make something happen before we get an opportunity to evaluate it fairly for everybody." Coker has been throwing to receivers this summer after Sims and Cooper Bateman led the competition in spring practices.


Saban said it was too early to evaluate chemistry between the quarterbacks and the rest of the team.
"I think when you're in a competition, you bring out the best in each player, so it's been helping us a lot as players with guys around them getting quality reps and that's helped us out a lot," tight end Brian Vogler said. "We're not really sure who. the quarterback is going to be right now, but the fact that we're getting everybody's best is helping


us out tremendously." Quarterback is the biggest question mark for a team that was in national title contention before closing with losses to Auburn and then to Oklahoma in the Sugar Bowl. Saban said the Tide's challenge as a team is "to sort of resurrect our identity, in terms of what we want Alabama football to be."
Alabama had some behavioral issues during the offseason, including the July arrests of tailback Kenyan Drake and Ree&. Reed was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence of alcohol in Tuscaloosa on July 13. Ivory is the only returning starter on the defensive line while Williams played in seven games last season as a reserve.
"Each guy can return to the team on completion of the requirement of what they have to do relative to- their suspension," Saban said. "And I have no date that I can give you that that's going to be completed."
Saban said offensive lineman Leon Brown, who is competing for the starting spot at right guard, will probably be limited in practice for at least the first two weeks with a foot injury.

Rays expect to stay in race after trade


The Associated Press

ST. PETERSBUR G -T The 'liunpa Bay Rays insist they haven't given up on their season by trading David Price.
The 2012 AL Cy Young winner was sent to Detroit on Thursday in a threeteam deal that landed pitcher Drew Smyly and shortstop prospect Willy Adames from the Tigers and infielder Nick Franklin from the Seattle Mariners. The Rays made the playoffs four of the past six seasons and entered 2014 with expectations of contending for a spot i) the World Series.
With Price leading the way, they've rebounded from poor start to surge into postseason contention, going a major leaguebest 29-13 since June 11.
But it wasn't enough to stop the budget-minded team *from trading Price, who was making $14 million this year and can become a free agent after 2015.
"Compared to the other possibilities, it was by far the most prudent thing that we could do for the best interests of the franchise," executive vice president of baseball operation Andrew Friedman said. I "Simply said, standing pat makes it much, much more difficult for us to maintain a compelling, competitive team going forward. That's the reality of a low-revenue club," Friedman added. "I think it's obvious to everyone that follows the game that the economic disparity is only widening. It makes it a little more challenging in our quest to always balance the present and future, but we can't waiver from who we are and how we have to do things to have success."


tHE ASSOCIAIED PRESS FILE
Tampa Bay Rays starting pitcher David Price delivers a pitch to the Boston Red Sox during the game in St. Petersburg on July 25. Price was traded to the Detroit Tigers on Thursday.


The Rays considered dealing Price last winter, but opted instead to sign him to a one-year contract while boosting the payroll to around $80 million. After a rough stretch in which the team lost 14 of 15 to drop a season-high 18 games under .500 (2442) on June 10, it was pretty much a foregone conclusion that the left-hander's days in Tampa Bay were numbered.
"It's no fun losing a David Price. But it's done," manager Joe Maddon said. "Now you have to move on, and you've got to make the best of it." With Smyly (6-9. 3.77 ERA) joining the rotation and the injured Wil Myers, Ryan Hanigan and David Delesus expected to return


from the disabled list soon, Maddon hopes to keep the Rays in the chase for a playoff berth.
He concedes it won't be easy without Price, but he's confident Tampa Bay has enough left to finish the job.
"I'm anticipating not skipping a beat, and that's not denigrating David in any way. I just think we've come so far- and we have a bunch of professionals in our room - that I want to believe we're going to be able to continue this," Maddon said. "I want to believe our players are mature to understand to know that nobody's given tup on anything" the manager added. "It's just a matter of the way this thing has worked."


Team president Matt Silverman feels the same way.
"It's not waving a white flag at all. ... If your team plays to the level that it can, especially considering all the head-to-head games we have within our division, we have a chance to make up the deficit and get into the playoffs," Silverman said.
"It's more difficult without David, but if the rest of the team plays up to their potential, we're going to be playing meaningful games in September for the seventh consecutive year," Silverman added. "And that's what we're about, maintaining that competitive team, year in and year out. And, this transaction will help us do that."


Hamlin 'confident in interim crew chief Wheeler


The Associated Press
I
LONG POND, Pa. Denny Hamlin said he'll use this week's suspension of his crew chief as motivation to prove his car can go fast "no matter what."
Joe Gibbs Racing crew chief Darian Grubb and car Wesley Sherrill were both suspended through the Sept. 6 race at Richmond. Grubb, the crew chief, was also fined $125,000. Team engineer Mike Wheeler will fill in as the crew chief. It strips Hamlin of two vital crew members during the stretch of the season he would be putting the finishing touches on preparations for NASCAR's title-deciding, 10race Chase for the Sprint Cup championship. Hamlin said the punishment could be a positive because Grubb can spend more time at the shop working on cars. Hamlin's car failed post-


race inspection Sunday at Indianapolis Motor Speedway because NASCAR said it found issues with several of the covers in the rear firewall of the driver compartment. Loose or missing covers could vent the driver compartment and create more downforce for the car. Grubb and Sherrill, who also each received six months' probation, are not eligible to return until the Chase opener on Sept. 14 at Chicago. "Well, you use stuff like this as motivation to go out there and prove that you can run fast no matter what and you can run well," Hamlin said Friday. Hamlin and team owner Joe Gibbs were docked 75 points apiece in the driver and owner standings. It dropped Hamlin from 11th to 21st in the Sprint Cup standings. But, as a race winner already this season, Hamlin is likely guaranteed a spot in the 16-driver Chase field.

Dear Annie: My husband has always been very controlling. I feel as though he puts me in a box and only lets me out when he decides it's necessary. He always has to know who I am talking to and where I aj every minute of every day. He is obsessive when it comes to texting and calling me, and if I don't respond fast enough, he gets upset.
He has a very short fuse, but has never hit or shoved me or done anything physical. He doesn't believe I should talk about our issues with friends or family, only with him. But when I try, he says he isn't doing anything wrong and that I'm the one with a problem. He won't go for marriage counseling. A few close friends and some family members are aware of what goes on and agree it is not right.
I've tried leaving a few times, but always return when he claims he will change. But, Annie, I know he will never change and don't understand why I haven't just left permanently. Of course, money is part of the problem, and we have two small children. I work full time and still can't make ends meet. I understand there is state aid to help me, but was told the waiting list is long, and it would be a year before I could get into any housing. I can't live with my family. There's no room.
I've always been an optimistic person, but I've become depressed over this. I keep to myself a lot. I realize now that this is how my husband was raised. He needs to be the center of attention at all times, and his parents believe he walks on water. Is there any hope to make this work?
