Fire leaves mom challenged anew
BY DEBORAH BUCKHALTER
A Marianna woman, her two children and their grandmother were left homeless by a fire last week that heavily damaged the rented house that they have called home for the past year. It burned one day shy of their first anniversary there. Shernicka Brown lived at 2940 Carver Lane with her 14-year-old daughter, her 10-year-old son, and her 65-year-old mother, Idell Brown, who had recently moved in for a temporary stay. Shernicka Brown said that, despite the fire, she has many .. things to be thankful for. Those blessings include her non-rebellious teenage daughter, with whom she is close. They're so compatible that her daughter sometimes likes -to have a girl's night with mom. On. nights like that, instead of going to sleep in her own bedroom, she's often content to spend the night curled up in her mom's king-size bed.
That's the way it was Wednesday night. Brown, an LPN who works on a case-by-case basis, had been up almost 24 hours after working a shift in home health care, going on to a clientorientation, session after that, and aso pounding the pavement to line up more work. When she and her daughter finally went to bed Wednesday night, she was looking forward to sleeping in. But her mother's instinct, she guesses, woke.her from a drowsy state early Thursday when she reached out to put a hand on her daughter. Her daughter is quite A

Gulf Power wants
TALLAHASSEE- Gulf Power Company is asking a judge to dismiss a lawsuit alleging that it's allowing pollutants from aging coal ash pits to leak into the Apalachicola River. The nonprofit law firm Earthjustice filed the lawsuit in Tallahassee federal court in June on behalf of three environmental groups who say Gulf Power is illegally discharging arsenic, lead and other pollutants from its coal-
fired plant near Sneads into the river. Gulf Power's attorneys said in coirt documents filed Friday that "numerous studies confirm that discharges from the facility are not adversely impacting the surface water quality in the river." The Jackson County plant that opened in 1953 will close next year. Utility officials have said the plant always has been in compliance since Gulf Power began groundwater monitoring in the mid-1980s.

People sign up for the Affordable Care Act. Eleven Insurance companies announced pricing changes In Florida for 2015.
Health insurers raise 2015 Fla. exchange rates
The Associated Press
- Eight insurance companies are raising the price of health plans and three are lowering them in Florida through the Affordable Care Act exchange, state insurance officials said Monday. But whether you'll pay more or less depends on a complex formula including where you live and how companies are competing 'in that market.
Fourteen companies, including three new insurers, are planning to sell to Floridians through healthcare.gov in 2015. Of the 11 returning plans, eight filed average rate increases ranging from 11 to 23 percent, and three filed rate decreases ranging from 5 to 12 percent. Florida Blue, the largest insurer, is raising its premiums by an average of 18 percent. Hu*mana proposed an average 14 percent increase for its HMOs, while Molina proposed a 12 percent average rate decrease, according to state officials.
Florida's increases aren't staggering as health insurance rates have risen as much as 20 or 30 percent in recent years. Critics of the health overhaul warned of huge rate increases, a signal they say shows the law isn't working.
An individual earning $27,000 a year in Miami will only see a nominal increase. For example, the average premium costs $308 a month in 2015. With a $47 subsidy, that's $261 out of pocket each month. That's only slightly more than the $245 they paid out of pocket under last year% rates, according to an analysis by state officials. A family of four with an income of $51,000 living in Miami may also only see small increases. The average plan cost $1,072 a month, but the family only
paid $559 out of pocket last year thanks to a $559 subsidy. That family might only pay $615 a month with their subsidy this year. The actual average premiums only increased by $13 in Miami for a family of four, according to the analysis. Premiums and subsidies vary widely by factors including age, income, gender and zip code. That same family of four living in Escambia County can expect much sharper increases, where average premiums increased by roughly $150 this year. A family that received a roughly $500 subsidy each year paid $384 out-of-pocket a month last year, but may pay $532 a month this year. Subsidies are based on the second-lowest silver plan by county, so as insurers change the price of their plan, consumers can expect to see differences in their subsidy amounts, as well.
State insurance officials are not allowed to negotiate prices with insurers for two years under a new state law. Federal health officials still have to sign off on the proposed rates. UnitedHealth Group, the nation's largest health insurer, Health First Health Plans Inc. and Time Insurance Company will enter the Florida market for the first time through the exchange. ;
insurance companies say the rates partly reflect an older and sicker population than they'd anticipated. "The rate change reflects costs of health care and the amount of services we're seeing and some of the cost escalation in general," said Coventry Florida president Christopher Ciano. "Some of the folks that bought for January needed greater care that first six months of year," said Brian Evanko, president of Cigna's U.S. individual market.
Legislature plans quick fix for districts
The Associated Press .
TALLAHASSEE - The Republican-controlled Florida Legislature laid out plans Monday to move ahead quickly and make minimal changes to congressional districts declared illegal by a state judge.
Florida legislators will hold a nine-day special session starting on Thursday to redraw the state's 27 congressional districts. Circuit Judge Terry Lewis had given legislators until Aug. 15 to draw up a new map that may be used for a special electioq later this year.
Senate President Don Gaetz said that it was the goal of legislative leaders to "move forward without delay to remedy the boundaries of the two congressional districts" cited by Lewis in his July ruling. Lewis ruled that the districts were drawn to benefit Republicans in violation of the "Fair Districts" standards adopted by voters four years earlier. The two districts are a sprawling district held by U.S. Rep. Corrine Brown that stretches from Jacksonville to Orlando and a central Florida district held by U.S. Rep. Dan Webster.
"Because the court held intact 25 of the state's 27 congressional districts as the Legislature drew them, I believe we can and should meet the court's requirements with minimal impact on the rest of the state," Gaetz said in a statement.
Thomas Zehnder, one of the attorneys who represented the groups that sued the Legislature, ap-

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.
plauded leaders for taking "an important first step." But he cautioned that "It remains to be seen whether they will produce maps that comply with the constitution." The groups that had challenged the maps had unsuccessfully asked Lewis to draw a new map instead of leaving the job up to legislators.

Scott pledges major spending on environment
The Associated Press
TALLIAHASSEE - Gov. Rick Scott, caught in a tight campaign with his chief rival challenging his environmental record, has pledged if re-elected to spend millions more on everything from cleaning up springs to buying more lands for conservation. Scott is scheduled to roll out a substantial environmental platform during campaign stops Monday in Martin County on Florida's east coast. Several of the "Let's Keep Florida Beautiful" proposals Scott plans to announce represent a marked turn-around from his 2010 campaign when he pledged to slash government spending and tear away regulations that he said were harming the state's economy. "Florida's natural beauty is a big reason why this is the best state in the country to call home," Scott said in a statement. "Our natural resources are the foundation of our economy - they drive tourism,
housing, business, and agriculture - and they deserve our long-term commitment." The Republican incumbent is vowing to dedicate $500 million to springs restoration over the next 10 years as well as $500 million over the same time period to help create alternative water supplies. He also wants to keep moving ahead with projects designed to steer excess and potentially polluted water from Lake Okeechobee away from the St. Lucie and Caloosahatchee estuaries.
Scott also plans to promise to spend $150 million a year for Florida Forever, the state's environmental and conservation landbuying programs. The state once spent as much as $300 million a year on the program before legislators enacted steep cutbacks amid Florida's souring economy.
The governor is also pledging to crack down on polluters during a second term by increasing the fines that can be
the elections or disenfranchise voters.
"Other than the partisan plaintiffs masquerading as voting rights groups, I can find no one who would want a postponed or special election to leave Florida without representation in Congress for months, weeks or even days," said Gaetz, R-Niceville. Rep. Perry Thurston, DPlantation and one of the House members assigned to the committee that will draw up the new map, countered that it is wrong that have voters cast ballots on gerrymandered districts.
"I don't think the answer it to let people vote on illegal maps," Thurston said. Zehnder said in a written statement that it was "disappointing to see the defendants continue to insist on delaying the restoration of representative democracy."
Voters in 2010 passed new standards that said legislators cannot draw up districts to favor incumbents or a political party. The congressional map adopted by the Legislature in 2012 was challenged by several groups, including the League of Women Voters, who contended that the GOP consultants used a "shadow" process to draw districts that benefited Republicans. Lewis agreed, ruling that the consultants had helped make a "mockery" of the process and that there was evidence they helped "manipulate" the Legislature into a violation of its constitutional duty. The judge relied on emails and documents that have been kept under seal although the state Supreme Court is scheduled to consider whether that information should be made public.

assessed against "bad actors" who violate permit terms. Scott said he also wants to consider making it harder for some companies to secure permits if they have had a history of harming the environment. Similar proposals in the past have been llocked by the Republican-controlled Legislature.
Former Gov. Charlie Crist has been vocal in his criticism of Scott's handling of the environment, especially over Scott's reluctance to espouse a firm opinion on climate change. The Scott campaign has pushed back by contending that Crist didn't do enough to help the Everglades or springs during his time in office.

Wildfires menace homes in 3 Western states
The Associated Press
BURNEY, Calif. - Humid conditions gave crews hope in their battle against two wildfires in Northern California that have scorched more than 100 square miles and are menacing a small town on Monday, at a time when firefighters in Oregon and Washington state also aim to combat destructive blazes.
The blazes raged mostly uncontrolled within miles of each other, and the worst of the two has burned eight homes and threatened over 700 more, state fire spokeswoman Capt. Amy Head said. Plus, residents in the town of Burney in Shasta County face possible evacuation.
"Right now we're continuing to put in containment lines to box in the fires as they are growing at such an explosive rate," Head said. "We also want to make sure that if there are any evacuation notices, that the residents will listen to what officials are saying and heed

the warning." In downtown Burney, where there was some road closures, residents on Monday went about normal activities with flames and smoke as backdrop. A day earlier, the fires prompted officials at Mayer Memorial Hospital to evacuate their 49-bed annex for patients with dementia and other conditions requiring skilled nursing. The patients were transferred to a hospital in Redding, about 55
miles away, according to the hospital's website. The two fires, which began within a day of each other in Lassen National Forest and had expanded into private property, were burning through timber and brush parched by California's historic drought. They were among about a dozen fires that had burned some 209 square miles across the state and that more than 7,500 federal and state firefighters battled, Head said. Gov.
Jerry Brown declared a state of emergency on Saturday, saying'the circumstances and magnitude of the wildfires were beyond the control of any single local government and required the combined forces of regions to combat. California is 35 percent above average in the number of fires it's seen so far this year, state fire spokesman Dennis. Mathisen said Sunday. The state is also 44 percent above average in the amount of land burned.
While firefighters hoped to take advantage of the humid conditions in Northern California on Monday, they also faced red flag warnings as possible thunderstorms were expected Monday. The storms could bring more fire-causing lightning, Head said.
Meanwhile, a major wildfire in the Siskiyou Mountains along the Oregon-California border has slowed as temperatures cooled, but it still jeopardizes 270 residences after burning six scattered rural homes.

US had role in Ebola drug given to aid workers
The Associated Press
Two American aid workers infected with Ebola are getting an experimental drug so novel It has never been tested for safety in humans and was only identified as a potential treatment earlier this year, thanks to a longstanding research program by the U.S. government and the military.
The workers, Nancy Writebol and Dr. Kent Brantly, are improving, although it's impossible to know whether the treatment is the reason or they are recovering on their own, as others who have survived Ebola have done. Brantly is being treated at a special isolation unit at Atlanta's Emory University Hospital, and Writebol was expected to be flown there Tuesday in the same specially equipped plane that brought Brantly. They were infected while working in Liberia, one of four West African nations dealing with the world's largest Ebola outbreak. On Monday, the World Health Organization said the death toll had increased from 729 to 887 deaths in Guinea, Sierra Leone, Liberia and Nigeria, and that more than 1,600 people

have been infected. In a worrisome development, the Nigerian Health Minister said a doctor who had helped treat Patrick Sawyer, the LberianAmerican man who died July 25 days after arriving in Nigeria, has been confirmed to have the deadly disease. Tests are pending for three other people who
also treated Sawyer and are showing symptoms. There is no vaccine or specific treatment for Ebola, but several are under development. 'The experimental treatment the U.S. aid workers are getting is called ZMapp and is made by Mapp Biopharmaceutical Inc. of San Diego. It is aimed at boost-
ing the immune system's efforts to fight off Ebola and is made from antibodies produced by lab animals exposed to parts of the virus.
In a statement, the company said it was working with LeafBio of San Diego, Defyrus Inc. of Toronto, the U.S. government and the Public Health Agency
of Canada on development of the drug, which was identified as a possible treatment in January. The statement says very little of the drug is available and they are "cooperating with appropriate government agencies to increase production as quickly as possible," but gives no details on who else might receive it or when. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration must grant permission to use experimental treatments in the United States, but the FDA does not have authority over the use of such a drug in other countries, and the aid workers were first treated in Liberia. An FDA spokeswoman said she could not confirm or deny FDA granting access to any experimental therapy for the aid workers while in the U.S.
Writebol, 59, has been in isolation at her home in Liberia since she was diagnosed last month. She's now walking with assistance and has regained her appetite, said Bruce Johnson, president of SIM USA, the Charlotte, North Carolina-based group that she works for in Africa. Writebol has received two doses of the experimental drug so far, but
Johnson was hesitant to credit the treatment for her improvement.
"Ebola is a tricky virus and one day you can be
up and the next day down. One day is not indicative of the outcome," he said. But "we're grateful this medicine was available."
Brantly, 33, who works for the international relief group Samaritan's Purse, also was said to be improving. Besides the experimental dose he got in Liberia, he also received a unit of blood from a 14year-old boy, an Ebola survivor, who had been under his care. That seems to be aimed at giving Brantly antibodies the boy may have made to the virus.
Samaritan's Purse initiated the. events that led to the two workers getting ZMapp, according to a statement Monday by the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, part of the U.S. National Institutes of Health. The Boone, North Carolinabased group contacted U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention officials in Liberia to discuss various experimental treatments and were referred to an NIH scientist in Liberia familiar with those treatments.
Governor makes Newtown
The Associated Press
- Gov. Dannel R Malloy is making a campaign issue of his handling of the 2012 mass school shooting in Newtown, using it as he seeks a second term to highlight his leadership during difficult times.
Malloy's second television ad, released Monday, features Nicole Hockley, whose son Dylan was one of 20 children killed at Sandy Hook Elementary School. Hockley credits the Democratic governor with having "the courage and conviction to stand up and do the right thing." The 30-second spot comes on the heels of an ad that mentions his leadership when "unimaginable evil let loose in a school."
Both ads mention Mallby s handling of other crisks Connecticut has faced during his tenure, including a massive budget deficit and Superstorm Sandy.
State Republican Party Chairman Jerry Labriola Jr. accused Malloy of trying to exploit the mass shooting, as well as Sandy, for po'litical gain. In a statement,

Surrounding him are Lt. Gov. Nancy Wyman (left)Nell Heslin, (second left) father of shooting victim Jesse Lewis, and Nicole Hockley (rgt) mothr of shooting victim Dylan.
Labriola contends the latest ad shows that Malloy, who is expected to face a challenging re-election fight, is desperate and trying to distract voters from his economic record. Malloy's two Republican challengers, businessman Tom Foley and Sen. John McKinney, either declined to comment on the ad or referred questions to the state GOP.
Mark Bergman, a se-
nior adviser to Malloy's campaign, said Hockley reached out to them and said she wanted to help Malloy get re-elected.
"It was a generous offer on her part and we're honored to have her support," said Bergman, adding that Malloy's leadership during
-and after the Sandy Hook shooting "received widespread praise and is part of his record. And his record is an important part of this
Hockley confirmed she offered her support and said she disagrees with critics who say Malloy is taking advantage of tragedy. "This was an incredibly significant part of his most recent term," she said. Hockley said her words in the ad are her own. "It's not like there was a script or anything like that. I just spoke from the heart," she said.
Khalilah Brown-Dean, an associate professor of political science at Quinnipiac University, said she believes Malloy's campaign had to Include his response to Newtown. "This is sort of that elephant in the room, so to speak. This is a tragedy that happened in this state," she said, adding that it makes sense ,for Malloy to reference Newtown considering that the shooting prompted new gun, control legislation, which likely will be an issue in the general election, especially if Foley wins the Aug. 12 primary. Foley has been critical of the bill, unlike McKinney, who supported the legislation.
Brown-Dean said she thought Malloy's campaign "masterfully" handled the issue in the first ad, by making a generic reference to the shooting. She said the second ad "takes this to the next step" by including one of the victim's parents. But Brown-Dean said Sandy Hook is different from other tragedies because
so many of the parents, including Hockley, have become politically active since the event. "I think it was tasteful given the context," she said. "Here you have a parent who has been very vocal about this, who has actively engaged politicians and engaged the policy."

Marianna rallies from early deficit at World Series

Marianna Angels All-Star Angel Cury waits on a pitch before sending it over the centerfield fence during a Dixie Youth Angels World Series game Monday afternoon in North Myrtle Beach, S.C.
BY DUSTIN KENT
The Marianna All-Stars rallied from an early deficit to roll to a 16-7 victory over Alabama on Monday's opening-round game in the Dixie Youth Angels World Series in North Myrtle Beach, S.C.' After taking a 2-0 lead in the top of the first inning on a two-run inside-the-park home run by Angel Curry, Marianna fell behind in the bottom of the inning when Alabama took advantage of five walks and a pair of RBI singles off of starting pitcher Ashlyn Wierman to jump out to a 5-2 lead.
Marianna took the lead
with five runs in the top of the third inning, but Alabama answered with two of its own in the bottom of the inning off of reliever Amari Brown to tie the game 7-7.
Curry's second homer of the day, this one a three-run shot over the centerfield fence, keyed a four-run surge in the fourth inning to put Marianna up for good 11-7. Marianna tacked on five more runs in the top of the fifth inning, and Josie Scott shut down Alabama for the second straight inning to close out the game and earn the win.
ï¿½ "We played pretty good. We struggled a little bit in the first inning, but the girls settled
down after that," Marianna coach Jim Williams said after the game. "We had a lot of hits.
"The girls put the bat on the ball a lot; just about everybody throughout the lineup hit it well. We had some good at-bats."
Despite the shaky start
- or perhaps because of it
- the coach said he believes his players are ready now for whatever adversity they xvill face through the rest of the tournament.
"I hope it did the girls some good to get behind early. You hate to ever be behind, but for them to know that they

FSU, Fisher eye back-to-back titles
The Associated Press
TALLAHASSEE, Fla. -'Florida State coach Jimbo Fisher said he read books written by former NBA coach Phil Jackson in an attempt to discover the secrets of winning multiple championships. Jackson led teams to three consecutive titles on three separate occasions. Fisher is just focused on capturing back-toback championships.
The fifth-year coach routinely lists Michael Jordan, Magic Johnson and Larry Bird as inspirations, but also mentioned Miami Heat president Pat Riley, former Pittsburgh Steelers coach Chuck Noll and former Dallas Cowboys coach Jimmy Johnson on Monday.
"The key to all of them was how they related and got the message over to their players to make sure that they stayed hungry," Fisher said. "One of the
keys to all those things was that it was serious, it was work, but at the end of the day they still enjoyed playing the game. "We can get so caught up in not trying to lose instead of winning and playing good football. ... What I don't want us to do is create a culture where we're worried about losing."

Without them, a pedestrian offense became downright pitiful. The line was pushed around. Backs found few, if any, holes. Receivers struggled to get open, and even when they did, there was no one to effectively deliver, the football.
The Gators averaged a little more than 17 points a game without Driskel and ended up with an offense that ranked 113th in the nation.
"To stick your head in the sand and pretend it was all injuries, that was not right," Muschamp said. "You'll fool yourself if you believe that."
Muschamp responded by overhauling his offense. He fired offensive coordinator Brent Pease and offensive line coach Tim Davis, replacing them with former Duke ,coordinator Kurt Roper and former USC line coach Mike Summers, and Installed an uptempo, spread scheme designed to better utilize Driskel's talents.
"It's a chance to really get into a groove as aquarterback," Driskel

Dear Annie: My mother has always had a rocky relationship with her sister, "Josie," for many reasons. The final straw came after Josie stole money from my mother seven years ago. They haven't spoken to each other since. I understand that my aunt hurt my mother badly and what she did was unforgivable. I know Josie doesn't deserve another chance, but I wish my mother would give her one anyway. Josie has changed her ways over the past seven years and now lives a very stable life. I don't think she's the same person. No one in my family (including me) will ever trust Josie because of the things she's done. But I wish my mother would call her sister and say that she loves and forgives her. My siblings and I have talked to Mom about this, but she always brushes us off. I know this is between the
two of them, but they aren't getting any younger, and they don't have an eternity to reconcile. I don't want my mother or Josie to have any regrets. Is there anything we can do?
-WORRIED DAUGHTER AND NIECE Dear Daughter. You are kind, forgiving and understanding to want your mother to reconcile with her sister before it's too late. Unfortunately, until your mother reaches the same conclusion, there is little you can do. You say Josie has changed, but at the same time, you will never trust her. It's difficult to forgive someone who has repeatedly broken your trust and hurt you, and not all reconciliations are beneficial if the behavior continues. But you can ask your mother what Josie would need to do to get back in her good graces and then see whether Josie is up to the task.
Bob Hope said, "If you watch a game, it's fun. If you play it, it's recreation. If you work at it, it's golf."
As you watch the cards closely, you play well and find bridge to be fun. The work is training your partner also to pay close attention.
Today's deal can either be a 50-50 bet or a sure thing, depending upon the skill level of East and West. How should they card to defeat three no-trump? West leads the spade five. Declarer takes East's king with his ace and attacks diamonds. North added one point for his decent five-card diamond suit and raised to three no-trump.
South starts with only five top tricks: two spades (given the first trick) and three clubs. However, four more winners are readily available from the diamonds. So, if East has the diamond ace, the contract is guaranteed. If West has that ace, maybe he will not find a heart shift; or if he does, it will not prove lethal. Here, though, as you can see, if West leads the heart jack, then when he gets in with his diamond ace, the contract can be defeated. But how does West know to lead a heart rather than a club? West should duck the first diamond to get some help from his partner. East should play first the two to show an odd number. But on the second round, he
could play either the eight or the three. By following suit with the eight, the higher card, East is expressing interest in the higher-ranking of hearts and clubs, the two unplayed suits. This points West in the right direction - if he is watching.

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
Cleveland Browns quarterback Johnny Manzlel passes during practice at the Browns' training camp Monday. Manziel began working with the Browns' first-string offense this week.
Manziel works with starters
The Associated Press
BEREA, Ohio - Johnny Manziel took a planned trip one slot up the depth chart. There's no telling how long No. 2 will stay No. 1.
The rookie quarterback took snaps with Cleveland's starters for the first time in practice at training camp on Monday, moving ahead of Brian Hoyer for at least one day. Coach Mike Pettine said Manziel's promotion was simply the next step in the club's evaluation of the two quarterbacks in the second full week of their competition for the startingjob.
"It's just part of our plan," Pettine said. "We said we were going to allow the quarterbacks to compete, at some point you've got to mix up the

first preseason practice Monday afternoon. The Sem-noles ended a string of seven consecutive titles won by Southeastern Conference teams with a perfect 14-0 record.
- While the Seminoles have had some offseason issues - Heisman trophy winning quarterback Jameis Winston was cited for shopliffing and receiver Jesus Wilson is
supporting cast a little bit. It's all part of it." Manziel's promotion planned or not - caused quite a stir at Browns camp as another large crowd lined the fields behind team headquarters to get a close look at Hoyer vs. Johnny Football. Pettine knew the decision to move the popular Manziel in with the starters would cause a commotion.
"That's great," he said, shrugging his shoulders. "That comes with the territory."
Manziel had worked exclusively with Cleveland's second-string offense until Monday, when Hoyer was dropped back with the subs.
Pettine cautioned not to look deeper into the change and said there's still a strong chance Hoyer
suspended indefinitely for the theft of a motor scooter - they have enough talent to make another run. The Seminoles return 15 players who started in the championship game. Winston served a threegame suspension during baseball season and Fisher has planned to speak to Wilson Monday to discuss his status. Wilson is practicing with the team after he pleaded no contest to two misdemeanors stemming from the theft last week.
will start Saturday's exhibition opener in Detroit. Pettine said Manziel's performance in Saturday's scrimmage at Akron, where he made plays with his arm and legs, had no bearing on him practicing , with the starters.
"It's just something we wanted to work them both
in and it's part of our process," he said. On his first play of 11on- 11 drills, Manziel completed a 40-yard pass to wide receiver Travis Benjamin, who came back to grab the underthrown ball. Moments later, Manziel's tipped pass intended for Josh Gordon was intercepted by safety Donte Whitner.
Manziel completed 6 of 17 passes during the practice, and Hoyer was 11 of 22.
He was- originally charged with a felony. Fisher has refused to refer to his team as the defending champions
- a habit he began immediately after winning the title in January. He wants the focus on the future and what it will take to reach the top again. Fisher, however, has constantly looked back to previous two-loss and four-loss seasons. "Once you're up on that podium, do you really want to walk off?" Fisher said.

can come back if they get down is a good thing,"Williams said. "We told them it was a test of character and the game's not over until the last out is called, and if you focus on what you're supposed to do then good things will happen.
"Sureï¿½ enough, that's what they did and it paid off for them. I hope that
will keep their confidence up regardless of what the score is. Just because you fall behind early, it doesn't mean you can't come back."
Marianna out-hit Alabama 10-3 for the game, with Curry and Sydney Powell tallying two hits each, while Brown, Wierman, Mattie Rooks, Jasmine Bess, Lashaina Harvey, and Madison Peeler all had a hit as well. Marlanna will next play Louisiana today at 9 a.m.
Florida head coach Will Muschamp disputes a call by an official in the second half of a game against Toledo. Muschamp acknowledged at SEC media days that "there will be a lot of chatter about hot seat business" after Florida's first losing season since 1979.

said. "We've got a lot of good players. I think we nepd to have a good camp, stay healthy and grow as an offense and a team. We just have to put it all together."
Moving past last season might seem like the thing to do for Florida. But Muschamp and his players aren't quite ready to punt it away. "People say 'forget it,' but we're going to use it as our alliance, make it our strength and keep it in our side pocket," defensive back Keanu Neal said. J"We've got some revenge
to seek. A lot of people are doubting us, alot of people don't believe in us after 48. We're going to prove everyone wrong." If so, they might also save Muschamp's job. Muschamp is 22-16 in three seasons in Gainesvile and squarely on the proverbial hot seat heading into the season.
