DNA testing development
News of the DNA testing process for samples collected at the' Arthur G. Dozier School for Boys will be announced later this week, according to the University of South Florida.
Researchers are continuing to examine the now-closed school and trying to identify remains of dozens of bodies buried there in unmarked graves.
USF spokesperson Lara Wade-Martinez said in July that DNA results had been returned from the University of North Texas for only five of the 55 remains sent for analysis.
Those remains were disinterred from in and around the area of campus known as Boot Hill Cemetery Wade-Martinez did not cdnfixm if Thursday's announcement will increase the number of returned results.
A midday press conference at the school's Tainpa campus is planned for Thursday, when researchers who have worked at Dozier will discuss a "significant develophent", in the DNA testing and identification process. During the event, USF Associate Professor Erin KImmerle is expected to talk about the agreement with the Florida Cabinet that allows USF to work on the Dozier property in Marianna. Chief Financial Officer Jeff Atwater, a member of the Florida Cabinet member, is also expected to speak.

Longleaf pine making comeback in Northwest Florida
Projects that will help restore native longleaf pine and help protected wildlife are receiving Gulf Power-supported grants under the Longleaf Stewardship Fund.
Gulf Power's parent
company, Southern Company, joined the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation to announce $3.38 million in grants aimed at protecting and restoring the diminishing longleaf pine ecosystem, including seven projects within the Southern Company service area in Northwest Florida, Alabama, Mississippi and Georgia. The announcement was made Tuesday as part of a five-year anniversary celebration for America's Longleaf Restoration Initiative held in Washington, D.C.
The two projects in Northwest Florida spur restoration in Apalachicola National Forest and
A native longleaf pine.
Blackwater River State Forest.
In Apalachicola Nation-
al Forest and St. Marks National Wildlife Refuge, The Nature Conservancy
of Florida and its partners will establish 1,700
acres of longleaf pine
and enhance more than 26,000 acres of existing
longleaf habitat with
prescribed fire, hardwood
treatment and invasive
The project will benefit the gopher tortoise, protect native wildlife,
and support the natural resource and encroachment protection goals of
Tyndall Air Force Base
near Panama City.
Continuing restoration efforts at Blackwater
River State Forest, the Longleaf Alliance and partners will prescribe
fire on 20,000 acres,
control invasive species on 350 acres, treat 1,100 acres of hardwoods and
restore 330 acres of long0 leaf pine.
The project also will
support the natural
resource and encroachment protection goals of
Eglin Air Force Base by expanding potential offbase habitat for protected species, including the flatwoods salamander. "These projects are helping restore critical native habitat that our area has lost," said Natalie Smith, Gulf Power spokesperson. "It will take time, but we and our partners are committed to the long-term suc-. cess of these restoration efforts.
These projects throughout Northwest Florida and the Southeast all are working toward the same goal: restoring our legacy of longleaf pine and the native wildlife it supports."
The Longleaf Stewardship Fund stems from the success of the Longleaf Legacy program, a partnership between Southern Company and NFWF from 2004-2011 that invested $8.7 million
in projects expected to restore 82,000 acres of longleaf pine forest and the native species that rely on it.
Additionally, another 20,000 acres were restored through the company's closely aligned Power of Flight program with NFWE
. The majestic longleaf
pine ecosystem once covered more than 90 million acres across nine states from Virginia to Texas, but dropped to only 3 percent of its original acreage. With the diverse publicprivate commitment to longleaf pine restoration in recent years, longleaf pine forest has increased from roughly 3 million acres to an estimated 4.4 million acres, halting and reversing a century-long decline, and benefiting many threatened and endangered species depen-. dent on the habitat.

a dying art
here once was a time when a county fair, harvest
celebration or virtually any rural gathering during the political campaign season would bring
candidates out of the woodwork. They'd press palms and kiss babies and, given the slightest opportunity, make public remarks to endear themselves with the
It's the sort of tradition that compelled Harry Truman
cover more than 30,000 miles through America via locomotive on a 1948 whistle-stop tour, making more than 350 speeches from the back of a rail car. It's what sent Louisiana Gov. Earl Long out campaigning on a sweltering night in the summer of 1959, interrupting his
remarks, as A.J. Leibling writes in The Earl of Louisiana,
only to "wipe the sweat from his face with a handkerchief soaked in Coca-Cola." Long likely learned from his
brother, Huey Long, whose stump speeches - and his
endurance in giving them - are legendary.
Over the weekend, Panhandle residents learned that
stumping is a dying art, lost to electronic sound bites, 24-hour news cycles and all-important attack ads. At the Wausau Possum Festival, Jackson County voters might have expected a contingent of politicians surrounded by staff, all working the crowds and asking for votes. There were some, notably U.S. Rep. Steve Southerland and his challenger, Gwen Graham, as well as George Sheldon, who is running for attorney general. But there were conspicuous absences; neither Gov. Rick Scott nor challenger Charlie Crist attended, and Attorney General Pamn Bondi wasn't there, either. That's a shame - not only for the voters who might not otherwise have an opportunity to look into the eyes of those who want to represent them, but for the electoral process itself, for if candidates aren't willing to connect with their constituency when they're trying to earn votes, what can be reasonably expected when they win an office?
hen you have a problem with your cable service, there's a handy "800" number to call. But
getting actual help ... ah, that can be another challenge entirely.
Last week, a man got so fed up with a Comcast
service call that he recorded it and posted it online, where it went viral. In response, the chagrined cable giant said it would have the employee "personally apologize."
"We are investigating this situation and will take
quick action," said the response from Comcast Cable Senior Vice President Tom Karinshak. Note the absence of a promise to correct the problem. And sadly, note the absence of any outside regulatory pressure to do so.
The customer, Ryan Block, sent back a priceless reply to Comcast: "I hope the quick action you take is a thorough evaluation of your culture and policies, and not the termination of the rep." "We can, and will, do better," Comcast Cable Chief Operating Officer Dave Watson pledged in a later message.
Unfortunately, customer service complaints aren't limited to one big cable company. Frustration is widespread among the limited providers, nationally. It wasn't supposed to be this way. As cable and telecom services evolved and were deregulated in recent years, the mantra was that competition would thwart monopolistic practices, yielding more choices and ,happier customers.
The reality, so far, is somewhat different. It has become easier to find alternative access to TV but "highspeed" Internet service in many communities comes from a single cable company. (That is true, for example, in parts of Sarasota.) And though Internet access is critical to communication and the economy, Florida does not regulate it or provide oversight through the Public Service Commission. In Florida, cable issues used to be handled by
franchise agreements - permitted monopolies, in "effect - hammered out with cities and counties. The arrangement was far from ideal, but it did give locals some leverage in setting terms of service. With deregulation in 2009, the state Legislature ended that localized system. Now, if you have a service complaint, you can file it with'the state Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services (800-435- 7352). It acts as a "clearinghouse" but is not the regulator. Getting a response may take 30 days. Certain cable complaints also can be taken to the Federal Communications Commission (888-225-5322).
The first step in dealing with a service problem, of course, is to call the cable company. Often, this works
out OK once you get through the "press 1, press 2," "call failed" gauntlet. But if the response has you steamed
- say, for example, if six different customer reps tell you it will be at least four days before a service slot opens to restore your "bundled" cable, phone and Internet services - what then?
It would be nice to know that providers of such important communication services would hold themselves to a high standard - and that if they fell short, someone would hold the companies accountable.
But when the providers have more leverage than the consumers, good luck with that.

The Wiregrass has a seat at the table
eshoring is the newest buzzword concerning the U.S.
It means the transfer of a business operation back to its country of origin. The U.S. was once the leader in manufacturing, but then it became much cheaper for companies to produce their goods in other countries like China. Now those manufacturers are returning to the U.S. and foreign entrepreneurs are expanding to the U.S. A Wall Street Journal blog recently reported manufacturing in the U.S. has stabilized for the first time since 1998, when the decline in manufacturing facilities began a rapid decline. In fact, manufacturing in the U.S. has been stable for the past two years. . "After a steady decline that continued for over 10 years, we've finally flattened out," the WSJ blog quoted Daniel Meckstroth, chief economist at the Manufacturers Alliance for Productivity and Innovation, a research group in Arlington, Va.
A popular question is what's spurring the U.S. manufacturing revival?
Wages are one reason. According to an article in The Economist, real wages in American manufacturing have declined by 2.2 percent since 2005. In contrast, pay and benefits for Chinese workers rose by 10 percent each year between 2000 and 2005, and escalated up to 19 percent each year between 2005 hand 2010. The Chinese government is targeting annual increases in minimum wage of 13 percent until 2015.
Americans still earn more, but the gap is closing.
Raw materials are another reason.
Chinese textile companies purchase the majority of their cotton from the U.S., because it is significantly cheaper than cotton in China. They ship the cotton to China and pay tariffs. They make their products, and then ship it back to the U.S. and pay more tariffs. By manufacturing their products in the U.S., they eliminate shipping costs and tariffs.
Energy is cheap in the U.S. and getting less expensive with the fracking revolution. Another advantage is manufacturing products where they are consumed. The U.S. is still the No. 1 consumer market, so it is advantageous to produce the items here, especially with the other cost savings mentioned above. Retailers are moving toward warehousing less, so by setting up factories in the U.S., manufacturers can respond faster to customers' demands.
The American South is the hotbed for reshoring. A big reason is lack of strong unions. States like Alabama are "Right to Work" states. A Right to Work law.secures the right of employees to decide for themselves whether or not to join or financially support a union. The lack of unions is very attractive to manufacturers. The cost of living in the South is lower than most areas in the U.S., and the weather is milder in
The reasons for reshoring and foreign companies investing in the U.S. are many. I've just named a handful of them. The good news is it's a trend that's not going away anytime soon. That means more jobs are coming to America.
Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) accounts for 5.6 million jobs, and that number will continue to increase. FDI includes many benefits to our cities, counties, states and nation.
According to a recent Brookings report, FDI accounted for 15.2 percent of annual investment into our nation's capital stock. That's significant.
Then there are the jobs. When factories open jobs are created, and there are also indirect and induced jobs. For example, if it is a green-field project, which means construction of new buildings, construction jobs are created. When more people are working, the purchasing power of the populace increases. That extra income creates more jobs in the service industry, and more homes and cars are purchased. All of that stimulates the local economy and increases the tax base.- I, The good news for the Wiregrass is our region is not just on the radar, but has a seat at the table with a number of companies looking to. invest and expand to the U.S. That means the chances for significant job creation and better quality of life are real.
Those are reasons to be thankful.

Common sense plentiful - and rare
By MARSHA MERCER
ommon sense is the mantra of the moment in the
On July 29, Republican House Speaker John Boehner of Ohio accused Democratic Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid of Nevada of "making a deceitful and cynical attempt to derail the House's common-sense solution" on dealing with the border crisis. Common sense is something we used to assume all Americans have. Since Thomas Paine published his famous "Common Sense" pamphlet in January 1776 and sparked
a revolution, we've been enamored of plain talk and level-headedness. . That paragon of American inventiveness Thomas Alva Edison said the three great essentials to achieving anything worthwhile are, first, hard work; second, stick-to-itiveness; third, common sense. Last Wednesday, Rep. Bennie G. Thompson, D-Miss., and Sen. Ron Wyden, D-Ore., introduced a bill to $restore common sense to the classification and security system." Most people didn't know that more than 5 million people hold security clearances and that the, system is cumbersome, costly and potentially intrusive. Call in com-
mon sense reform! In 2010, the Labor Department's Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) introduced the first new rules in nearly 40 years for heavy equipment operators. The White House called the rules a "common sense approach to cranes, derricks and the safety of American construction workers." After complaints, OSHA later agreed to delay the certification period for operators until 2017.

Letters to the Editor Concerning source of political funding
Rev. Bruner recently opined: "Where is Funding for Democratic Candidates Coming From?"
Well, funding is coming from grassroots folks all over the USA like me. Big and small. Yep, right here in good ol' Jackson County. I gladly fund Democratic causes that appeal to me. I am also a proud Democrat. I ask this: Where are the Republicans getting their funding? Funny he did not bring that up. He also criticized President Barack Hussein Obama for not going to Texas. What if he had gone to the borders? Rev. Bruner and others would have accused him of us-
ing the visit as a photo op. No matter what he does, there will be critics. Steve (WonderBoy) Southerland deserves every criticism aimed at him. He's just another Republican obstructionist and tea party puppet. One of his stated goals was to be a stumbling block for POTUS. The sole aim is to block and hinder any and everything POTUS does. .I am also pro-God, proChristian, and believe in God's word, the Bible.

Farm Credit of Northwest Florida shares $4 million
Special to the Floridan
To benefit local agriculture and farmers, Farm Credit of Northwest Florida will share $4 million in profits with its members in 2014 through the cooperative's patronage refund program. "The patronage refund is a
form of profit sharing that distinguishes Farm Credit from other lenders," said board chairman Richard Terry, a Madison County farmer.
"We're delighted that the association performed well this past year and that Farm Credit of Northwest Florida customers
have the opportunity to share in that success," said Rick Bitner, president and CEO. "Profit sharing is one of the unique and tangible benefits of doing business with a customer-owned cooperative."
Since 1988, Farm Credit of Northwest Florida members
have benefited from $74 million in patronage refunds or profit-sharing declared by the cooperative's board of directors.
"We have been and strive to remain a strong and valuable source of funding for agriculture and our rural communi-
ties, through the good times and bad," Bitner said. "Agriculture is the second largest industry in the state, ranking behind only tourism. Farm Credit of Northwest Florida is proud to provide a stable, reliable source of credit to rural America," said Richard Terry.

Gannett splits publishing, broadcasting
The Associated Press
NEW YORK - The game of survival is on for newspapers, as USA Today owner Gannett on Tuesday became the most recent major media entity to say it will divide its print and broadcast divisions into separate companies. As consumers continue to gravitate toward online sources of news and entertainment, newspapers are increasingly being asked to fend for themselves. Gannett said its separation will leave the newspaper unit debt free and let both companies pursue growth and acquisitions more efficiently. But some observers see the rush to split less profitable print businesses from growing TV and digital operations as an ominous sign for the newspaper industry. "To take a draconian view, over next 10 years a lot of newspapers could disappear or be much smaller print products," said Edward Atorino, an analyst with Benchmark Co. As part of the move, Gannett also announced Tuesday that it will take full ownership of Cars.com for $1.8 billion, another sign of the increasing importance of digital properties. Gannett's spinoff follows similar maneuvers by major operators such as Time Warner Inc. and News
Corp. Earlier this week, the Tribune Co. completed a split with its division that publishes The Los Angeles Times and other newspapers.
The spinoff trend takes place amid a backdrop of declining newspaper revenue. As consumer tastes for digital content grow, advertisers continue to shift more of their spending online. Over the past eight years, annual print newspaper ad revenue has fallen 64 percent to $17.3 billion in 2013, according to the Newspaper Association of America. Gannett's publishing arm will retain the Gannett name and include USA Today, 81 lotal U.S. daily publications and Newsquest, a regional community news provider in the U.K. The company touted the publishing unit as a debtfree company and said both entities will have "increased opportunities to grow organically across all businesses," as well as pursue strategic acquisitions. CEO Gracia Martore said the "bold actions" will help increase value for shareholders "in today's increasingly digital landscape." Benchmark Co.'s Atorino said the newspaper unit was "holding back the Gannett stock." But many other analysts say the recent rush to spin off print assets paints a dark picture
"Now, these stand-alone print companies won't have the profits to depend on from the broadcast companies," said Ken Doctor, a media analyst for consulting company Outsell. "For them, it's life without a parachute. They have to figure out how to make it completely on their own."
None of the spinoff print companies have very much debt, which is a positive, but they don't have any source of strong revenue growth either, Doctor added.
"Their only route is to continue to manage decline at the same time they're trying to find growth," he said. Gannett acquired Belo Corp. last year for about $1.5 billion, nearly doubling the number of TV stations it controls. The deal raised talk of a split almost immediately as the broadcast division's dominance grew over the publishing wing.
Gannett's broadcasting and digital arm, which has yet to be named, will operate the company's 46 television stations and websites such as CareerBuilder. It will also include Cars.com.
Both companies will remain headquartered in McLean, Virginia. The broadcasting and digital
company will trade on the New York Stock Exchange. The publishing business is also expected to trade on the NYSE.
Gracia Martore will serve as CEO of the broadcasting and digital company. Robert J. Dickey, currently president of Gannett's U.S. Community Publishing division, will become CEO of the publishing company. If approved by the company's board, Gannett anticipates that the distribution of the new publishing business' shares will be completed by the middle of 2015.
Gannett is buying the 73 percent interest in Classified Ventures LLC, owner of Cars.com that it doesn't already own. Cars.com lets people compare vehicles online and connects them with sellers and dealers. The web site displays about 4.3 million new and used cars from nearly 20,000 dealers.
Gannett will finance the Cars.com transaction with available cash, approximately $650 million to $675 million in new senior notes and borrowings under its revolving credit agreement. The deal is expected to close in the fourth quarter. Gannett's stock slipped 45 cents to $33.87 in late day trading. The stock is up about 16 percent this year.
Cemer to buy NY judge warily
Siemens Health lets $285M Citigroup Services for $1.3B deal proceed
Health information technology company Cerner Corp. is buying the health information technology business unit of German industrial conglomerate Siemens AG for $1.3 billion in cash. The two companies announced the deal on Tuesday.
Kansas City-based Cerner says it expects the acquisition of Siemens Health Services to contribute 15 cents per share to its adjusted earnings next year and more than 25 cents per share in 2016. Cerner intends to finance the acquisition with available cash. Both companies' boards have approved the proposed deal, which is expected to close in the first three months of 2015. As part of the pact, Cerner and Siemens agreed to team up for at least three years to develop new products or services in the field of medical technology.
NEWYORK-A New York judge has begrudgingly approved a longdelayed $285 million settlement between Citigroup Inc. and government regulators over toxic mortgage securities.
Federal Judge Jed Rakoff approved the deal Tuesday, but only after making it clear he thinks the approval process was weakened by an appeals court finding that he overstepped his authority. The judge wrote that a June 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeal's decision means settlements
reached by government regulatory bodies and enforced by the judiciary's contempt powers will in practice no longer be subject to meaningful oversight.
From wire reports
Obama seeks ways to limit tax inversions
The Associated Press
WASHINGTON - Aiming to sidestep a logjam in Congress, the Obama administration is looking for steps it could take on its own to prevent American companies from reincorporating overseas to shirk U.S. taxes, officials said Tuesday.
President Barack Obama has denounced so-called tax inversions as unpatriotic and has urged Congress to stop them, in an election-year push that Democrats hope will appeal to middle-class voters who feel corporate America isn't paying its fair share. But Republicans and Democrats disagree about the best solution, rendering congressional action this year unlikely. Tinkering with inversions without going through Congress would open up Obama to charges he's unilaterally rewriting the tax code, just as House Republicans are already suing Obama for
allegedly exceeding his authorities. Last month, Treasury Secretary Jacob Lew said the administration had examined the tax code and determined that without new laws, its options were limited. "We do not believe we have the authority to address this inversion question through administrative action," Lew said. But on Tuesday, the Treasury Department said that while only legislation can fully fix the problem, the Obama administration was searching for ways to provide a partial fix, warning that corporate inversions are actively eroding the U.S. tax base. "Treasury is reviewing a broad range of authorities forpossible administrative actions that could limit the ability of companies to engage in inversions, as well as approaches that could meaningfully reduce the tax benefits after inversions take place," the department said in a statement.

Improving housing market luring would-be brokers
The Associated Press
MIAMI -To motivate a classroom packed with 87 aspiring real estate agents, instructor Keith Grandy started off his one-week, intensive course with the promise of big money: With hard work, fresh licensees in the Miami metro area could make $100,000 a year if they complete at least two transactions per month, according to current property prices and commissions.
With 67 condo towers being built in South Florida, a pace not seen since, the housing crash of 2007, such a payday seems more than possible to Grandy's students, despite competition so intense that many of them will leave their new career without completing a single sale.
"If you are aggressive, you can do extremely well," he said during a break from his class at Gold Coast Schools of Real Estate in Doral, a Miami suburb.
Low interest rates, foreign buyers and a gradual end to the foreclosure crisis are driving the modest turnaround in the nation's housing market, but there might be no better evidence of it than the number of people hoping to become brokers. In Florida, where housing prices dropped by about half when the recession hit, the number of applications for real estate licenses has almost doubled from 23,863 in 2010 to 40,901 last year. In California too, the number of people taking the license exams has doubled since 2012, respectively. Even Nevada, another hard-hit state, saw a 23 percent bump in prospective licensees last year. The National Association of Realtors, which has more than a million brokers, salespeople,
appraisers and other real estate professionals among its members, added 42,000 agents to its ranks in 2013, the first increase in seven years.
The workforce in this field tends to expand and contract violently, mirroring the booms and busts that shock the housing market and the economy as a whole.
Gold Coast Schools of Real Estate, which has five South Florida campuses, saw its enrollment fall 70 percent during the- housing collapse, director John Greer said. But enrollment was up 20 percent last year, driven by students dazzled by the chance at fat commissions like the kind attached to every deal on TV's "Million Dollar Listing."
"The income is going to be great and I'm going to have my 6wn schedule," said Katherine Sanchez, a 34-year-old nutritionist and a student in Grandy's class.
One reason many turn to real estate is that it's not a difficult field to enter: while each state has different requirements, it generally takes little time and money to get a license. On average, Gold Coast students spend two months preparing for the Florida sales associate exam and spend less than $1,000 in tuition and licensing fees. It can be done even faster. Students in Grandy's crash course cram 575 pages in one week before taking the state exam, which tests their knowledge of real estate law, practice and procedures, and math. Florida says 51 percent of students pass on their first try. But selling real estate is Et difficult job with long hours. Studies show that most new agents quit with no or.few sales. The Realtors association said the median gross annual

income of its broker and sales agent members nationally was $47,700 in 2013, up from $43,500 in 2012.
Jovita Martfnez, 36, who got her license a year ago, says she earned about $20,000 working full time, often seven days a week. She turned to real estate when she found herself unemployed after she married a U.S. citizen and moved from Spain' to Miami. Soon after getting her
license, she realized the business is not as easy as she expected. "It is hard because I am not from Miami and do not know anybody out of the circle of my husband," she said.
Still, Martinez says her clientele is growing and she enjoys her new job. A social worker in Spain, she likes being self-employed. "Either you sell or you don't make money. As simple as that," she said.

Hurricane Bertha unlikely to make landfall in US
The Associated Press
MIAMI - Hurricane Bertha was churning northward far from land, posing no direct threat to the U.S. East Coast, and was expected to weaken Tuesday.
The center of the storm was expected to stay offshore as it passes wide of the U.S. mainland over the next few days, and the storm is also likely to miss Bermuda.
"There's no direct impact that will be felt on the U.S. East Coast. However, there could be added surf and rip current conditions;" said Dennis Feltgen, spokesman for the U.S. National Hurricane
Center in Miami.
That doesn't mean coastal residents should let their guard down, though.
"We've still got the peak of the season to go on the Atlantic side, mid-August to mid-October," Feltgen said.
The hurricane formed Monday morning, and its maximum sustained winds decreased to 75 mph by the late evening. Further weakening was expected over the next two days. The hurricane was centered about 490 miles west of Bermuda and was moving north-northeast at 20 mph.
On Sunday, the storm buffeted parts of the
Bahamas and the Turks & Caicos with rain and gusty winds, after passing over the Dominican Republic and causing temporary evacuation of dozens of families as its downpours raised rivers out of their banks. Earlier, it dumped rain on Puerto Rico, which has been parched by unusually dry weather. Before Bertha reached the Turks & Caicos, residents pulled boats ashore or moored them at marinas in the tourism-dependent archipelago that has little natural protection from strong storm surges. Tourism Director Ralph Higgs said hotels were "taking the threat of the storm sriously."
Two women walk with the protection of an umbrella in Old San Juan, Puerto Rico on Saturday. Bertha pushed just south of Puerto Rico on Saturday as it unleashed heavy rains and strong winds across the region.
2Q loss widens
BOCA RATON - Office Depot's second-quarter loss widened as the office supply retailer dealt with increased expenses. Its adjusted results met analysts' expectations, while revenue topped Wall Street's view. The Boca Raton, Floridabased company reported a loss of $190 million, or 36 cents per share, for the period that ended June 28. That compares with a loss of $64 million, or 23 cents per share, a year earlier. Removing one-time items, Office Depot Inc. lost 2 cents per share. This matched the forecast of analysts polled by FactSet. Selling, general and
administrative expenses climbed to $863 million from $560 million, while merger, restructuring and other operating expenses rose to $103 million from $27 million.
Revenue increased 59 percent to $3.84 billion from $2.42 billion, bolstered by the inclusion of OfficeMax sales in the current quarter's results. Wall Street predicted $3.81 billion in revenue. Office Depot and OfficeMax Inc. completed their $1.2 billion merger in November 2013. Shares of Office Depot shed 9 cents to $5.02 in Tuesday afternoon trading.Hearing rescheduled
in Bieber DUI case
MIAMI -A MiamiDade County judge has postponed a hearing to determine whether Justin Bieber will be tried on charges of driving under the influence and resisting arrest.
The judge on Tuesday postponed the hearing until 1:30 p.m. Aug. 13 at the request of prosecutors and Bieber's attorney. Bieber was arrested Jan. 23 in Miami Beach after what police described as an illegal street race between Bieber and a friend. Alcohol breath tests
found Bieber's level below the 0.02 limit for underage drivers, but urine tests showed the presence of marijuana and an antianxiety drug. Bieber also was charged with driving ' on an expired license. It's unknown whether Bieber will attend next week's hearing.
Man planned UF student's killing
GAINESVILLE - Prosecutors say a 20-year-old Miami man orchestrated a plan to kill a University of Florida student because of an obsession with a girl who had dumped him for the victim.
During opening statements Tuesday in a Gainesville courtroom, prosecutor Brian Kramer said Pedro Bravo researched ways to kill and get away with it before drugging and strangling 18-year-old Christian Aguilar in a Wal-Mart parking lot.
Kramer showed photographs of Bravo buying duct tape and a shovel from Lowe's - the same duct tape prosecutors say was found on Aguilar's remains.
Prosecutors say Bravo drove Aguilar's body to a wooded area and buried it before getting his car washed.
Kramer says Aguilar's blood and DNA were found in Bravo's SUV. Bravo faces seven charges including homicide, poisoning and mishandling human remains.
Detectives say the card came from a wallet stolen July 4. The owner of the wallet called police Sunday to report more fraudulent activity on her card. Detective Mark Proco visited the stores where the card was used. A clerk at Looking Good Beauty Supply remembered being suspicious when a woman tried to make a purchase in July but didn't have a photo ID. So she asked if she could take her picture. Police are seeking the public's help in identifying the woman.
Boy left in car while
mom was In bar Retiree auditioning for hand
- Police in Florida say a woman faces DUI and. child neglect charges after her son was left alone in her Mercedes while she drank at a nearby bar in St. Petersburg.
The Tampa Bay Times reports the 8-year-old boy went into Tryst Lounge several times, apparently looking for his mother. St. Petersburg police say when 36-year-old Krastina Yankova Gesheva finally left the bar around 3 a.m. Monday, she backed into two cars. She was visibly impaired when officers arrived. Her blood alcohol level was 0.177, more than twice the legal limit to drive in Florida. The boy, who was sitting in the car, was released to a guardian.
Gesheva was-released from jail later Monday after posting $10,500 bail. There was no word on whether she's retained an attorney.
-Authorities say an Allegiant Air flight made an emergency landing at St. Pete-Clearwater International Airport after a flight attendant was injured during turbulence. The flight was en route from Fort Lauderdale to Asheville, North Carolina, on Monday when a flight attendant suffered head injuries during the turbulence.
Airport Operations Manager Lloyd Tillmann told the Tampa Bay Times the 147 passengers on board were taken off the plane while arrangements were made for another flight to North Carolina. He says the flight attendant was taken to a hospital for treatment. Her condition wasn't immediately available. No further details were immediately available.

LYNN HAVEN -A 72year-old man is making good on a pact he made with a friend during graduate school at Florida State University. He's returning to Tallahassee to audition for the FSU Marching Chiefs band. Graham Shaw of Lynn Haven began practicing with gold-colored cymbals in April. He told the News Herald of Panama City that his late friend Doug Kerley provides the inspiration to "make the band" after retirement. His efforts will raise money for cancer research in honor of Kerley, who died in 2000. Marching Chiefs' assistant drum major Michael Keyogh says Shaw will find lots of competition in the percussion section, which typically has the most students auditioning.

MIAMI -Two men face multiple charges of grand theft for taking baggage
from carousels at Miami International Airport. The Miami Herald reports 37-year-old Ais Jimenez and 41-year- old Juan Fidalgo were arrested July 25 at a Miami home. Police say they found numerous pieces of luggage inside the home. Jimenez was charged with 16 counts of grand theft for stealing some $25,000 worth of items. Fidalgo faces two counts of grand theft for taking in excess of $2,000 in goods. Police say the men also admitted to taking luggage from Fort LauderdaleHollywood International Airport and Palm Beach International Airport. On June 11, authorities spotted the men taking baggage on airport security camera. They had stolen items at least three more times before their arrest because police didift know who they were.
CAPE CANAVERAL - A communications satellite has been launched from the Cape Canaveral Air Force Station. An unmanned Falcon 9 rocket lifted off at 4 a.m. Tuesday, lighting up the night sky.
The rocket carried the Asiasat-8 spacecraft, which will support direct broadcasting, private networks and broadband connectivity for customers in China, India, Southeast Asia and the Middle East. The fourbeam satellite will join a constellation of other satellites in geostationary orbit serving various parts of the eastern hemisphere. This is the 11th flight for the Falcon 9, the second in less than a month. An abort was called because of technical issues seconds before a lift
off at the beginning of the window around 1:30 a.m., followed by a scrub. After evaluating the situation, launch officials decided to make a second attempt.
TALLAHASSEE -The group that represents Florida's doctors is coming out against a proposal to allow medical marijuana in the state.
Florida voters will vote this November on a measure authorizing medical marijuana.
The Florida Medical Association on Monday announced it was opposed to Amendment 2. The group that repre-
sents physicians said in a statement that there are "unintended consequences" linked to the proposal that create a health risk. The FMA contended that the amendment would allow health care providers with no training to order medical marijuana. United for Care, a group supporting the proposed amendment, said.the FMA's position does not reflect growing support for the measure among doctors and nurses. The organization also questioned the FMA criticism about training. The group said rules could be passed later to require training.

2nd American aid worker with Ebola arrives inUS
The Associated Press
ATLANTA - An American aid worker infected with Ebola arrived Tuesday in Atlanta, joining a second patient being given an experimental treatment that has never before been tested on humans,
Nancy Writebol, 59, traveled from Monrovia, Liberia, to Emory University Hospital, just downhill from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. She arrived two days after Kent Brantly, a doctor with whom she had worked'in Liberia and who also contracted Ebola, showed up for treatment.
The differences were stark in how they went from the ambulance to Emory, which has a highly specialized isolation unit. While Branly, 33, was able to walk with assistance into the hospital, Writebol - covered from head to toe in a protective suit
- was wheeled in on a stretcher.
Still, the- 59-year-old Writebol was described as weak but showing signs of improvement. 'A week ago we were thinking about making, funeral arrangements for Nancy," her husband, DavidWritebol, said in a statement read by the president of SIM USA, the aid group with which she was work-
ing in Liberia. "Now we havq a real reason to be hopeful."
Brantly and Writebol were both infected despite taking precautions as they treated Ebola patients in West Africa, where the virus has been spreading faster than governments can contain it, killing nearly 900 people so far.
The treatment, called ZMapp, was developed with U.S. military funding by a San Diego company, using antibodies harvested from lab animals that had been injected with parts of the Ebola virus. Tobacco plants in Kentucky are being used to make the treatment.
It's impossible to know whether the drug saved these workers, CDC Director Tom Frieden emphasized. "Every medicine has risks and benefits," he said to reporters at a health symposium in Kentucky "Until we do a study, we don't know if it helps, if It hurts, or if it doesn't make any difference." If the treatment works, it could create pressure to speed through testing and production to help contain the disease in Africa. There is no vaccine or specific treatment for Ebola, but several are under development, including ZMapp, made by Mapp Biopharmaceutical Inc. It

works by boosting the immune system's efforts to fight the virus. The U.S. Defense Threat Reduction Agency announced last month that it is providing more funding to speed the drug's development. Brandy and Writebol were working at a missionary clinic outside Liberia's capital. David Writebol remains in Liberia, where
he said his wife's care was extraordinary. "It's not like having a nurse come in every hour to fluff up your pillow," he said in his statement. "It's more like going into a nuclear reactor. The suits are clumsy, hot and uncomfortable. But it was like watching the love of Christ take place right before your eyes."
David Writebol, said in his statement that she was able to stand up and, with assistance, to get on the plane in Liberia. Before the flight, she ate some yogurt, he said.
Ebola is spread by close contact with blood and other bodily fluids, and Writebol's duties included disinfecting doctors and nurses entering or leaving
the Ebola treatment area. Writebol and Brantly will be sealed off from anyone who isn't wearing protective gear. Dr. Bruce Ribner, who will treat them, said their families can speak with them through a plateglass window. On Tuesday Amber Brandy said in a statement that she has been able to see her husband every day.
Texas eased rules for housing immigrant children
The Associated Press
McALLEN, Texas Overwhelmed by the arrival of thousands of unaccompanied immigrant children, the state of Texas relaxed its standards for the shelters that house them, easing rules governing how much space each child needs and what kind of facilities they should have.
In some ways, the response to the influx resembled the reaction to a hurricane, with federally contracted shelters asking the state licensing agency to temporarily bend some of its regulations to accommodate a large population of children.
As with a natural disaster, President Barack Obama put the Federal Emergency Management Agency in charge of coordinating the government's response. Disaster-relief teams towed their portable showers and kitchens to the border, and Catholic Charities took donations and distributed clothing and supplies to the displaced.
Kyle Janek, executive commissioner of Texas Health and Human Services, instructed the state body that licenses shelters to work with them.
"Because of the large numbers we were seeing in a short period of time," Janek said, he directed the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services to lower shelter standards to the same level as after a hurricane. He made the remarks late last month in testimony to a legislative committee.
The regulatory changes reduced the number of square feet required' for each child and allowed more children to be housed per available toilet, sink and shower. Some shelters proposed having additional kids sleep on cots - an idea that was approved. A suggestion to give them air mattresses was denied, according to shelter documents obtained by The Associated Press through an open-records request. Even with the changes, the shelters are a world

away from the crowded conditions in the Border Patrol station holding cells where children were held for days for processing. At the shelters, children take classes, receive hot meals and can play.
More than 57,000 children, most from Central America, entered the U.S. illegally between October and June without a parent or guardian. That was more than double the number who arrived over the same period a year earlier.
Requests for rule exceptiong, called' variances, are evaluated for hygiene concerns and the potential risk for the spread of diseases such as chicken pox and tuberculosis, as well as "maintaining appropriate supervision ratios," Patrick Crimmins, a spokesman for the Texas Department of Family and
Protective Services, said in an email.
. At the end of July, nine Texas shelters were operating with variances that allowed additional capacity, Crimmins said. "This is obviously not business as usual. If a provider steps up and wants to try and shelter more children, we will help make that happen," he said. Once they are processed by the Border Patrol, children are placed in the custody of the government's Office of Refugee Resettlement. They stay at federal government shelters until they reunite with family members in the U.S. or move to longer-term foster care to await their day in immigration court. After hovering around 6,000 or 7,000 for several years, the number of children in the federal shelters doubled in 2012 and
doubled again in 2013, before surging higher still this year.
The agency responded by increasing the number of available beds in its shelter network - from 3,300 in 2012 to 5,000 in 2013. With the addition of three temporary shelters, that number rose this year to more than 7,000. At the end of July, the shelter caseload was down to about 6,300 children in 100 permanent facilities and three large temporary shelters on military bases in Texas, Oklahoma and California. The caseload had been more than 7,600 in mid-June.
On Monday, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services announced that it was suspending operations at three temporary shelters in coming weeks because the number of children
crossing the border has declined and because the agency had "expanded capacity to care for children in standard shelters."
Some of that additional capacity was achieved by adding beds to existing shelters.
One application by Southwest Key Programs, an Austin-based nonprofit that is the country's largest supplier of services to unaccompanied minors, noted that it would be adding two children to each room of four, reducing the space per child from 60 square feet to 40 square feet. A program spokeswoman confirmed they had requested variances, but did not respond to requests for interviews. Because the rule change was being requested for only a short time, "purchasing frame beds would not be practical," accord-
ing to the program's application. The nonprofit planned to purchase air mattresses. or cots. The state approved the variance but stipulated that air mattresses were not acceptable.
For other variances that loosened state standards requiring one sink, toilet and shower for every eight children, the state required shelters to make a schedule to ensure that every child had sufficient time for personal hygiene.

Ex-cop charged with homicide says death accidental
The Associated Press
KENOSHIA, Wis. - A former Wisconsin police officer killed a 19-yearold college student from Oregon during a choking game that went too far, hid her body in a suitcase she brought to their sex date and then kept her body in his refrigerator for months, according to a criminal complaint filed Tuesday. Steven Zelich, 52, of West Allis, was charged with first-degree intentional homicide - the Wisconsin equivalent of murder
- in the 2012 death of Jenny Gamez from Cottage Grove, Oregon. Zelich also is a suspect in the death of a Farmington, Minnesota,. woman.
The women's bodies were found in June in suitcases left along a rural highway about an hour southwest of Milwaukee. According to court records and testimony, Zelich told investigators that he met the women online, killed them accidentally during dates for sex and hid their bodies until they began to smell. Then he dumped them on the roadside, where they were found by highway workers mowing grass.
Kenosha County District Attorney Robert Zapf said he chose to charge Zelich with the most severe crime possible because he didn't believe the deaths were accidents.
"Killing two women over the span of 15 months under the circumstances in which the defendant acknowledged, by gagging them with a ball gag in the mouth, ropes around the neck,' hands tied behind

Steven Zelich appears in court in Kenosha, Wis. on Tuesday.A criminal complaint filed Tuesday says the former Wisconsin police officer killed a 19-year-old college student from Oregon during a choking game that went too far, hid her body in a suitcase she brought to their sex date and then kept her body in his refrigerator for months.
their back blindfold over their face. He may call that accidental. I call it murder," Zapf said.
Zelich's attorney, Jonathan Smith, said Zapf would have to prove that his client meant to kill the women, and that could be more difficult if they died during consensual sex. He also noted no homicide charges have been filed yet in the Minnesota woman's death.
"The fact of the matter is, he's charged with the death of one individual in Kenosha County, at this
point, and that's the death that we're going to focus on," Smith said. The punishment for conviction on a first-degree intentional homicide charge is life in prison. According to a criminal complaint filed Tuesday, Zelich met Gamez online and invited her to Wisconsin. He picked her up at the airport in Milwaukee, and they drove to a hotel in Kenosha, where they spent several days together. Zelich told investigators they played a sexual game in which he would choke
Gamez. On the last day, he lost control and choked Gamez until she died, the complaint said.
Zelich told investigators he put Gamez's body in her suitcase and took it back to his apartment in the Milwaukee suburb of West Allis. He kept her body in his refrigerator until he brought the body of Laura Simonson, 37, home in November, the complaint said. He later put both bodies in suitcases that he kept in the trunk of his car until the weather warmed and they began to smell.
Simonson died in similar circumstances. According to court documents, Zelich met her online and set up a date for sex at a Rochester, Minnesota, hotel. He told investigators he killed her there while playing the same choking game that led to Gamez's death. Zapf said Simonson's death proved crucial to breaking the case. Police quickly identified Zelich as a suspect in Simonson's disappearance, and surveillance video from the hotel showed the two had checked in together but
only he left. Investigators who interviewed Zelich in March took a DNA sample that later matched DNA taken from ropes used to bind Gamez.
West Allis police had searched Zelich's apartment in January but did not find the bodies. Zapf said Tuesday that by March, the bodies were in the trunk of Zelich's car.
Zelich worked for the West Allis Police Department from February 1989 until his resignation in August 2001, following an internal investigation that found he stalked women while on duty and used his position to get access to their personal information. His resignation allowed him to avoid discipline and pass state background checks for a private security officer's license. He was working as a licensed private security officer when he was arrested June 25, the same day 'detectives wearing hazmat suits removed large, brown bags of evidence and a refrigerator from his apartment.

Poll: Obana health law is a tale of 2 Americas
The Associated Press
WASHINGTON - President Barack Obama's health care law has become a tale of two Americas.
States that fully embraced the law's coverage expansion are experiencing a significant drop in the number of uninsured residents, according to a major new survey released Tuesday. States whose leaders still object to "Obamacare" are seeing much less change.
The Gallup-Healthways Well-Being Index found an overall drop of 4 percentage points in the share Of unifisured residents for states accepting the law's core coverage provisions. Those are states that expanded their Medicaid programs and also built or took an active role managing new online insurance markets.
The drop was about half that level -2.2 percentage points- in states that took neither of those steps, or just one of them.
"Those states that implement the law's major mechanisms are seeing a significantlygreater decline in their uninsured rates," said Dan Witters, research director for the poll. Medicaid expansion mainly helps low-income uninsured adults in states accepting it. Insurance exchanges operate in every
state, offering taxpayersubsidized private coverage to people who have no health plan on the job.
Leading the nation were two Southern states where the law has found political support. Arkansas saw a drop of about 10 percentage points in its share of uninsured residents, from 22.5 percent in 2013, to 12.4 percent by the middle of this year. Kentucky experienced a drop of nearly 9 percentage points, from 20.4 percent of its residents uninsured in.2013, to 11.9 percent.
Although the poll's margin of sampling error is higher for smaller states, Witters. said Gallup has a high level of confidence thatthe numbers represent real changes.
The poll found contrasts among states that share a border, but have taken different paths politically on the health care law. )) While Arkansas had the 10-point decline in its uninsured rate, the drop in Tennessee was just 2.4 percentage points. )) The uninsured rate in West Virginia fell 5.7 points after the state agreed to Medicaid expansion, but there was no change for neighboring Virginia, where Democratic Gov. Terry McAuliffe has been blocked by a Republicanled legislature.

Dixie Youth AngelsWorld Series Marianna Angels lose heartbreaker in extra innings
BY DUSTIN KENT
The Marianna All-Stars suffered a heartbreaking loss Tuesday morning in the Dixie Youth Angels World Series, falling to Louisiana 14-13 in seven innings.
It was the first loss of the doubleelimination tournament for Marianna following a 16-7 opening-day victory over Alabama on Monday. Marianna had three separate opportunities to close the game out in the fifth, sixth, and seventh innings, but a two-RBI blooped single to shallow left field in the bottom of the seventh gave Louisiana the walk-off win.
The loss was a hard pill to swallow for the Marianna team, with coach Jim Williams saying afterward that his club just couldn't catch a break at crucial moments.
"We had three or four chances to win, but we just couldn't buy some
good luck," Williams said. "There were just some freak things that happened that kept us from winning the game. That's just the way softball goes sometimes, I guess." Among the unlikely events that hurt Marianna was a hit all the way to the fence that would've scored two runs had the ball not rolled under the fence and been ruled a ground-rule double, as well as a catcher's interference call on a third strike that would've ended the game in the fifth.
Louisiana capitalized by scoring two runs to tie the game 8-8 and send it into extra innings, though Marianna answered back with three runs in the top of the sixth. But once again it was Louisiana with the answer, scoring three runs in its half to keep the game going. After Marianna plated two more runs in the top of the seventh to go up 13-11,
Louisiana's three-spot in the last,
inning proved the difference.
"They just hit the ball into some gaps out there and didn't hit them to where our people could make plays," Williams said of Louisiana's seventh inning.
"They hit the ball into openings. It wasn't like we were making errors. They just hit the ball into gaps and got base hits." Amari Brown started in the circle for Marianna and went two innings before giving way to Ashlyn Wierman for the third and fourth.
Josie Scott pitched the final three innings, which made her ineligible to pitch in Tuesday night's game against host team North Myrtle Beach, S.C.
Marlanna needed lo regroup and refocus for that game after a brutal loss, but Williams expressed confidence that his girls would do just thatS$*eP

Starting from scratch
rebuilding after banner year
BY DUSTIN KENT
The Cottondale Hornets went into last season with low expectations, but surpassed all prognostications with the single best season in school history, advancing all the way to the 1A state semifinals.
As fall practice begins this week, the Hornets again approach the season looking to be a surprise team, though the challenges appear even greater this time. around.
Gone is leading rusher Norris Calhoun, as well as starting quarterback Justin Klotz, starting offensive tackles Derrick Wilson and Brian Slesser, and defensive star Shaundre McAroy, though the biggest departure comes from the sideline with the retirement of long-time coach MikeMelvin. With only four returning starters and a dearth of experience in key positions on top of a coaching change, Cottondale could face an uphill battle in trying to replicate last season's success. However, new Hornets head coach Tyler Addison said he doesn't feel any pressure to do so; however, he said last year's run
provided both new and returning players with plenty of incentive to work hard this off-season. "Last year was last year and people are going to want to beat us anyway. We'll have a target on our back whether I'm the coach or not," he said. "But it's definitely some motivation for us because it really opened the kids' eyes that if you put in the work, good things can happen.
"Having never done that before at Cottondale, it kind of knocked down a barrier for what's possible. Now we've done it, so we know that we can, and we know there's no limit if we work hard enough." While the personnel losses are significant, the cupboard isn't completely bare for the Hornets, who return a pair of talented backs in tough inside runner DeMichael Faulk and speedy home-run hitter JaVontai Hall, as well as their starting inside linebackers in Wesley Spooner and Faulk Emmanual Lockhart and Jaueric Gardner give CHS some experience at receiver, with the skill positions in general having the potential to remain a point of strength for the Hornets.

College Footbal ACC looking for more respect
The Associated Press
GREENSBORO, N.C. - The Atlantic Coast Conference owns a few prized possessions that once were property of the Southeastern Conference. Among them: A national championship trophy, a Heisman Trophy, and a measure of respect. That's mostly because of Florida State's big 2013 season, and now it's up to the ACC to keep that momentum going.
"How about that, man, taking the rein from the SEC, huh?" said Heisman winner jameis Wnston of the Seminoles. "We are thenational champions in this conference, and that's important to me because people do need to respect
the ACC more.... I believe that Florida State, we helped gain that respect, and hopefully we can continue that." There's no question the Seminoles set the standard for the league after, capturing the last national title of the BCS eraseven months ago.
That helped change the perception of the ACC, which had, won two BCS bowls from 1998-2011 before claiming three wins in the final two years of the format.
Now the league needs another team that can challenge Florida State. Maybe it will be Clemson, last year's Atlantic Division favorite which bounced back from a lopsided loss to the Seminoles and beat Ohio State in the Orange Bowl.
Maybe it will be Louisville, a league newcomer which won two BCS games in the old Big East.
Or maybe someone else will make a run - like perennial cellar dweller Duke did last year.

Spartans managing increased expectations
The Associated Press
EAST LANSING, Mich. - The only way Michigan State can really top last season is to win a national championship, and goals like that can be daunting - especially in August.
So coach Mark Dantonio wants to focus more on the process than any potential outcomes that would be months away.
"I think the bottom line is for a football team - because the ball's going to bounce certain ways: Do you play hard? Are you resilient? Do .tou prepare? Do you do everything that you can do to be successful? .Do you carry yourself on and off the field correctly?" Dantonio said. ."Nationally, the general public basically evaluates you, 'Hey, do you win or do you lose?' And we won a lot of games last year, but there's always something that you can do to do a little bit better."
Last season's Big Ten title and Rose ,Bowl victory was the culmination of Michigan State's steady improvement in Dantonio's seven seasons at the helm. It will be hard to match the .excitement Spartans fans felt when their school played in the Rose Bowl for the first time since 1988 - but this season's team returns plenty of talent, so there's no reason for Dan,tonio to feel satisfied with one great year.
"We're going to dream big," Dantonio said. "What's been established is that we've been to the Rose Bowl, and we won the Rose Bowl, we won the Big Ten championship. That's been established. What we do beyond that remains to be seen." Dantonio spoke for about 30 minutes at media day Monday, and although some of his comments sounded like typical coachspeak, the Spartans understand the value of focusing on one game and one practice at a time. At the beginning of last season, Michigan State looked nothing like a Big Ten powerhouse, with its offense struggling to move the ball even against weaker competition.
By November, however, quarterback Connor Cook had become more comfortable, and the Spartans were able to ride an improving offense and devastating defense to an unbeaten Big Ten season. Cook is back, but that defense lost linebackers Max Bullough and Denicos Allen as well as defensive backs Darqueze Dennard and Isaiah Lewis. The Spartans will be tested almost immediately. After opening against Jacksonville State, Michigan State travels west to face Oregon and its fast-paced, dynamic offense. Of course, even that game is about a month away, so defensive coordinator Pat Narduzzi didn't want to talk about Oregon much.
"We actually ran a few Jacksonville State plays today. We've studied probably a week on Oregon during the summer," he said. "We're ready for them, but that's over with. We've got all our preparation. We're not thinking about them right now. We're thinking about ourselves, getting better fundamentally, knowing what we're doing, and then focus on Jacksonville State." Still, the Oregon game underscores the fact that there are always new challenges on the horizon - more chances for the Spartans to prove they belong among the nation's elite.
"Win or lose, we'll have a better understanding of how we need to improve after that game," defensive lineman Shilique Calhoun said. 'As a kid, I feel like everyone looks at Oregon, and you see the jerseys, and everyone loves all this. I really can't wait to play there, because I want to see how it is. I've never been." The Big Ten schedule starts about a month after that game, and three of Michigan State's toughest-looking matchups - against Nebraska, Michigan and Ohio State - will be at home.
"There's higher expectations. You have to manage those expectations," Dantonio said. "You have to keep things real for your players, but also continue to try and climb a ladder or two."

Last season's losses don't change Oregon's mindset
The Associated Press
EUGENE, Ore. - Oregon opened fall camp on Monday as the early favorite in the Pac-12. There's good reason: Quarterback Marcus Mariota is back. Mariota averaged nearly 282 yards passing per game and threw for 31 touchdowns with only four interceptions last season, He also rushed for 715 yards and nine scores. His 4,380 yards of total offense set a school record. There was speculation last season that he'd jump to opportunities in the NFL, but Mariota announced early on that he was sticking with the Ducks.
On Monday, Mariota said his decision didn't have all that much to do with "unfinished business" after Oregon lost two games last season to fall out of national championship contention. "For me I wanted to come back and get my degree, come back and enjoy another year with the guys and experience college for another year," he said. Experiencing college for another year for Mariota means taking classes in

In large part because of Mariota's return, Oregon has been picked in the annual poll of reporters who cover the conference to finish this season atop the Pac-12 North and claim the league's championship.
Oregon was ranked No. 4 in the preseason Amway coaches poll. The AP Top 25 will be released Aug. '17.
Mariota was a Heisman contender last season before struggling with a left knee injury. The Ducks had climbed to No. 2 in the AP rankings and were seemingly on course for a national championship bid. Then came Stanford.
It turns out Mariota had partially torn the medial collateral ligament in his left knee against UCLA the week before and the Cardinal beat the Ducks 26-20.
The Ducks rebounded to beat Utah, but then fell 42-16 to the fired-up Arizona Wildcats in Tucson. The loss dropped Oregon to No. 12 and skewered the Ducks' chances of a national championship bid.
The Cardinal went on to claim the Pac-12 North and beat Arizona State in the league championship to earn a spot in the Rose Bowl.
LSU S Mills
BATON ROUGE, La.
- LSU junior safety Jalen Mills has been reinstated to the team after his charge of second-degree battery was reduced to misdemeanor simple battery Monday.
Mills, who has been a two-year starter, allegedly punched a woman near his apartment last May. After his arrest in June, LSU coach Les Miles suspended Mills indefinitely. Mills started the first 25 games of his career at cornerback before being moved to safety for the Outback Bowl against Iowa. The move became permanent during spring practice.
Monday was the first day of August drills for the Tigers. Mills worked. in the afternoon session.
Projected starters practiced in the morning.
Miles says Mills continues to be disciplined "in house" and "will get some extra conditioning as part of his situation."
Offensive lineman eligible for Buffs
BOULDER, Colo. -Auburn transfer Shane Callahan has been declared eligible to compete for the University of Colorado's football team this fall.
Callahan, a 6-foot-6 offensive lineman from Chaparral High School in Parker, Colorado, redshirted as a freshman in 2012 for the Tigers and appeared in two games for them last fall. He enrolled at Colorado in July and joined the team for preseason practices that began Saturday.

The Associated Press
The Southeastern Conference finally got knocked off the mountaintop. " Now, Alabama and other .aspiring national contenders are trying to begin the .climb back in a league that suddenly has a fresh feel. Gone are marquee names like Jadeveon Clowney and Johnny Manziel and Heisman Trophy finalists AJ McCarron and Tre Mason. Presumed top contenders like Alabama, South Carolina, Georgia and LSU are breaking in new quarterbacks. Those factors
- and the wild, unpredictable 2013 season - are giving other teams around the league hope. After all, who could have "predicted Missouri and Auburn's surprising runs to division titles, Florida's injury-fueled struggles or the SECWest and Iron Bowl being settled on Auburn's final-play, 109-yard return of a missed field goal? '"Auburn came back and was competing for a na'tional championship," Florida cornerback Vernon ,Hargreaves III said. "You ,never know who's going to be the best, and that's why the SEC is the best confer'ence in college football." But the best team belonged to Florida State, which ended the SEC's seven-year national title streak with a 34-31 win over Auburn at the Rose Bowl.
For all the SEC's player Iturnover, there is stability
on the sidelines. The only new coach is Vanderbilt's Derek Mason.
Still, maybe it's the year for Mississippi to break through or Florida to make a dramatic rebound like Auburn did a year ago after an 0-8 SEC season. Or maybe Alabama, with three national titles in five seasons, returns to the top.
It certainly wouldn't be a big surprise for Steve Spurrier to lead South Carolina to its first SEC championship. The Gamecocks have posted three straight 11-2 records and are coming off a No. 4 final ranking. "Nobodypicked Missouri and Auburn to win the divisions last year," Spurrier said. "That's why we play the game. We don't know who's going to win 'em." Here are 5 things to watch during the upcoming SEC season: CHANGING QBS: Seven of the top eight passers from last season are gone, including Texas A&M's Manziel, Alabama's McCarron and Georgia's Aaron Murray. Only six teams have returning starters and one of those, Tennessee, carried over the competition into preseason camp. Freshmen are in the mix at Texas A&M, Kentucky and LSU, and Florida State transfer Jacob Coker is the odds-on favorite to win the Crimson Tide's starting job. Plus, Auburn will start Jeremy Johnson in the opener against Arkansas after Nick Marshall's
offseason citation for marijuana possession.
SPLASHY HIRES: Despite
the lack of head coaching turnover, Georgia and Alabama made big splashes hiring coordinators. Alabama landed former Tennessee, Southern California and Oakland Raiders head coach Lane Kiffin to run an offense that's loaded at running back and wide receiver. Georgia lured Jeremy Pruitt away from national champion Florida State to improve a defense that was middle of the pack. The Bulldogs also have replaced the other three defensive assistants. FLORIDA'S HOPES: Coach Will 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. Chances are there won't be a repeat of the injury-plagued 2013 season, though. And quarterback Jeff Driskel returns from a broken leg with a new offensive coordinator in Kurt Roper, who came over from Duke. The Gators
could be the SEC's most likely candidate for a big turnaround a la Auburn.
FRESH FACES: All those early departures for the NFL gives more freshmen shots at making early impacts. LSU tailback Leonard Fournette was the nation's consensus top prospect, and figures to carve a significant role in the backfield. Top quarterback prospect Kyle Allen could claim Texas A&M's starting job. At Alabama, Cam Robinson is the front-runner to start at left tackle and Tony Brown is competing for one of the cornerback spots. EARLY SHOWDOWNS:
Opening week could give a pretty fair idea of where teams stand. Texas A&M and South Carolina get the SEC season started on Aug. 28 in what gives the SEC Network a splashy debut. They've never played each other before. Alabama opens against West Virginia two days later, when Georgia also faces Clemson, LSU plays Wisconsin and Mississippi goes against Boise State.

Missouri back in Show-Me mode again
The Associated Press
COLUMBIA, Mo. - Just like last season, Missouri begins fall workouts way under the radar. The Tigers are coming off a 12-win season and SEC Eastern division title, but must replace numerous key players including NFL draft picks Kony Ealy, Justin Britt, E.J. Gaines and Michael Sam. James Franklin, a three-year starter at quarterback, and running back Henry Josey are among nine players in all at NFL training camps.
Missouri was picked fourth in the Eastern Division, which will serve as motivation for the returning players who moved up the depth chart.
"Last year we were an incredibly hungry team, we came off a losing record, and I think we're just as hungry thisyear," offensive lineman Mitch Morse said. "A different motivation intrinsically, but we're guys trying to prove myself.
"We get no respect and that's all right, I personally like coming from behind."
Coadh Gary Pinkel set the school career record for victories last season and entering his 14th season believes there's plenty of depth. There are 11 returning starters counting both specialists, five on defense.
"It's still about coming out and playing your best, bringing your best," Pinkel said. "I know it sounds so redundant and boring, but the teams that do that get better."
The team practiced at Faurot Field with temperatures hovering around 90 degrees.
Before media was escorted off the field just shy of the halfway mark, coaches could be heard barking over occasional buzzing from construction crews working on a new upper deck added when the school joined the SEC.
Missouri (12-2) opens Aug. 30 against South Dakota State, the first of seven home games. The conference opener is Sept. 27 at South Carolina.
"I'm the type of guy, I don't worry about what people think, I don't worry about respect," defensive end Markus Golden said after the opening workout Monday. "I know you've

banned supplement. Pinkel said Copelin bought the supplement at the mall, believing teammates had used it. "Anybody can buy it, there's nothing illegal about it except playing college football," Pinkel said.
Bud Sasser had 26 catches last season, most among the players returning. Redshirt sophomore Maty Mauk was 3-1 in the SEC as the starter last season when Franklin was out with an injury. Josey had 1,166 yards
and 16 touchdowns last year. Russell Hansbrough and Murphy combined for 1,286 yards and 13 touchdowns
The defense must replace Sam, the SEC co-defensive player of the year, and linebacker Andrew Wilson, who led the team in tackles the last three seasons.
Golden and Shane Ray are expected to step up at the ends. Golden, a senior, led defensive linemen in tackles and had 6 1-2 sacks, and Ray, a junior, had 4 1-2 sacks. "Shane is a beast, he's got a lot of speed coming off the edge, and I'm a beast on the other side," Golden said.
Irish QB Golson confident heading into camp
Texas QB Ash says 'good to be back' after injuries
The Associated Press
AUSTIN, Texas - Texas quarterback David Ash settled in to his seat and was quickly surrounded by a throng of reporters that included nine television cameras and even more microphones pushing toward his face. "It's good to be back," Ash said as if he loved the attention. "Did you miss me?"
Ash never used to look comfortable facing all the cameras and the questions that come with them, but the relief that comes with knowing that he will be playing football again was clear Monday, even if he still had to talk about his head and whether he should have quit the game after concussion symptoms wiped out most of his 2013 season.
Ash hadn't spoken publicly since before Texas lost at BYU in the second game last season when he suffered concussion in the second half. He tried to return two weeks later against Kansas State but lasted only one half before he was sidelined again. ,
He spent much of the rest of the season watching from afar. Sometimes, Texas officials wouldn't even let him stand under the bright lights of the stadium. Now Ash has been cleared by team doctors for full participation
- hits and all - in training camp.
"I'm so thankful I get to do this. Nothing's guaranteed and I for sure learned that. I feel so blessed that I get another opportunity to play this game," Ash said.
Another setback came last spring when a broken foot required surgery and he missed part of spring drills under new coach Charlie Strong, including the annual intrasquad scrimmage.
"I thought I was off the struggle bus, but I had to hop back on," Ash said. ' Perhaps the hardest part was dealing with the coristant questions of wheth'er he should quit because of the concussions to avoid potential further damage to his brain. 'A lot of people told me you need to give it up, you need to quit," Ash said. "Honestly, I never, really thought about it because in my mind I always was going to play again." Ash leaned heavily on his deep religious faith in finding a path to return, comparing himself to Olympic sprint champion and missionary Eric Liddell, whose sports career was chronicled in the 1981 film "Chariots of Fire." And there were many conversations with his family. Ash wouldn't discuss details but revealed he had to convince his mother that a return to the field would be OK.
Stanford begins fall camp ready to reload, not rebuild
The Associated Press
- Stanford coach Shaw walked over porters following day's first training
Calif. David to reMoncamp
practice for what has practically become an annual tradition: fielding questions about several key contributors to replace. Shaw's team has provided emphatic answers in each of his first three seasons. He expects the same this fall.
"I think our guys take a lot of pride in that," Shaw said.
Finding a way to reload
- and not just replace
- team leaders each year has helped carry the Cardinal to consecutive Pac-
12 championships and Rose Bowl berths. Toby Gerhart, Jim Harbaugh and Andrew Luck are just a few of the no'table names Stanford has seen move on to successful NFL careers in recent years. Running back Tyler Gaffney, linebackers Trent Murphy and Shayne SkoV and four starters on the offensive line were among this summer's biggest departures.
Losing such talent can take some programs a year or more to recover. At Stanford, the "next man up" mentality so many teams tout has been done enough now that players are confident the transition will again go smoothly.
The Associated Press
CULVER, Ind. - Notre Dame quarterback Everett Golson is feeling calmer, more confident and just a bit more comfortable than he was in the spring, when he failed to reclaim the starting position he held before a season-long suspension.
Golson admitted to feeling a tinge of anxiety Monday as the Fighting Irish opened preseason camp at Culver Academies, a private high school about 40 miles south of South Bend. The senior from Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, believes competition from sophomore Malik Zaire will better prepare him for the upcoming season. "It kind of raises the stakes a little bit. So you can't come out and feel comfortable one day. You need to push and keep pushing. It's only going to let both of us get better," he said.
Golson took every snap with the first-team offense and his passing was more precise than Zaire, who struggled at times with accuracy. While sitting out last season after being suspended for academic impropriety, Golson spent two months in San Diego trainingwith quarterbacks coach George Whitfield. After failing to win the starter's job in the spring, Golson made a return trip earlier this summer where
he worked out with Baylor quarterback Bryce Petty and Virginia quarterback David Watford. "I just wanted to compete with them, see where I measure up," Golson said. "That's what I gained from that. Just a lot of confidence. Also just a little bit more honing in on my footwork again. It has helped me competitively." Coach Brian Kelly said he will name a starter whenever either shows consistency and leadership. Kelly was asked last week whether Golson was the obvious choice to star, since he was quarterback when the Irish faced Alabama in the national title game two years ago. "I would argue that Everett rode the bus to the championship," Kelly said.
Golson said he believes the remark was made more for the media than about him. Golson laughed when Kelly interrupted his session with the media.
"You get more reporters than I did," Kelly said. Golson appears more at ease both on and off the field than in 2012. He said he wasn't sure how to act wherv he won the starter's job back then. "I didn't really know what the coaches wanted from me. I was always thinking: 'What do these' guys want?"' he said. "Now I'm able to kind of just be out there and
make plays. I've been with coach Kelly for four years now, so I know what he wants from this team. I know how he operates. So it's all about me just kind of being comfortable and doing my thing." Kelly wants Golson to play with even more confidence.
"I think there was a time when he was a bit fearful at the quarterback position. I want to get him fearless," Kelly said. ""If he gets to that level, It's going to be fun and exciting to watch him play." Notes: Tackle Ronnie Stanley, who is expected to anchor the line, was carted off the field midway through practice. Kelly said he needed to get some intravenous fluids because of the heat. The
temperature was about 80 degrees at the time. ... Kelly said receiver Will Mahone is not expected to return to Notre Dame. Mahone pleaded guilty last month to four misdemeanor counts of resisting arrest, disorderly conduct, assault and aggravated menacing. He originally had been charged with three felonies but those were reduced. Kelly said Mahone is looking at other options.

Hoyer again with Browns
starters, Manziel with 2s
Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Vincent Jackson catches a pass during training camp Monday in Tampa.
Bucs Jackson would sacrifice stats for wins
The Associated Press
TAMPA - Vincent Jackson thinks the Tamia Bay Buccaneers will be better on offense this season, even if he catches fewer passes and gets into the end zone less often. That how much the threetime Pro Bowl receiver believes in quarterback Josh McCown and some of the other changes the team has made after ranking 30th in scoring and last in passing and total yardage in 2013.
Jackson has had two stellar seasons since signing a five-year, $55.55 contract in free agency, but says he would gladly sacrifice gaudy statistics for more wins. The Bucs haven't made the playoffs since 2007, however Jackson is confident that trend will not continue under new coach Lovie Smith.
"I start every season the same way It's got to be about
wins. Team first. Every time I come out here, I need to be part of this offense, contribute to this offense," the 10th-year pro said. "That just means doing my job. It doesn't mean going out there and catching a certain amount of balls or scoring a certain amount of touchdowns," Jackson added, "Sometimes I can create openings for other guys, and the run game can get it there and mix it up. To me, that's winning football. That's what Lovie's about. That's what I've always been about." Jackson, 31, posted personal bests with 72 catches for 1,384 yards while averaging a NFL-leading 19.2 yards per reception and scoring eight touchdowns in 2012.
He followed up with a career-high 78 receptions for 1,224 yards and seven TDs a year ago, when Tampa Bay began the season with eight consecutive losses
and finished 4-12. When Smith replaced former coach Greg Schiano in January one of his first orders of business was hiring Jack Tedford as his offensive coordinator. The former Cal coach installed an up tempo style of offense that Jackson says will provide plenty opportunities for him, running back Doug Martin and others to contribute. "I'm excited. ... Training camp is obviously a time for us to clean up, sharpen everything we've worked on this offseason," said Jackson, who spent the first seven years of his career with the San Diego Chargers.
Besides signing McCown, a career backup coming off his best year, the Bucs used their entire draft on offensive reinforcements, beginning with the top three picks - receiver Mike Evans, tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins and running back Charles Sims.
The Associated Press
BEREA, Ohio - The first depth chart didn't reveal anything new about Cleveland's quarterback order. Brian Hoyer is first. Johnny Manziel is second.
A day after Manziel took snaps with the Browns' starting offense for the first time, Hoyer was back behind center with Cleveland's first-team unit during 11-on-11 drillsTuesday. With their competition seemingly tighter than at the start of training camp, Hoyer and Manziel had their best days of practice and Cleveland's offense finally clicked. "I thought there was some good competition out there," coach Mike Pettine said. "I was glad that the guys responded the way they did." Pettine had cautioned not to read too deeply into Manziel's one-day promotion, saying it was part of the plan for Cleveland's coaching staff to evaluate the two quarterbacks. And sure enough, Hoyer was right where he's been since the Browns opened camp - ahead of Manziel.
Pettine did not reveal who will start the Browns' exhibition opener in De,troit on Saturday. Pettine said he'll meet with the position group before deciding how the plays will be divided. On
Monday, Pettine said it was likely that Hoyer will start against the Lions. Manziel, the wildly popular firstround pick, appeared to close the gap on Hoyer following a solid performance in a scrimmage last weekend in Akron. But Hoyer seems to have responded the past two days, making quick decisions and accurate throws as he tries to hold off the Heisman Trophy winner with the cult-like fan base.
"Where you see where Hoyer's ahead is his ability to throw a ball before a guy breaks open, but we certainly see Johnny making strides in that direction," Pettine said.
Manziel again showed some of his Johnny Football theatrics with scrambled and side-arm throws, giving Browns fans at camp a chance to cheer. But what's impressed the Browns is Manziel seems to be grasping Cleveland's offense.
"He understands football, but when you switch offenses and you're going from just a completely different system, it's just like learning a foreign language," Pettine said. "You know it in your own terms, but then you have to find out, 'OK, how do I translate? What I know was this is now this.' That's just, part of the learning curve for everybody, especially rookie quarterbacks."

Cowboys' Romo says he will skip preseason opener

Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo passes during an organized team activity June 2 In Irving, Texas.
The Associated Press
OXNARD, Calif. - Tony Romo wrapped up his most strenuous day so far at training camp by saying his surgically repaired back would get a rest: He will not play in the preseason opener at San Diego. The Dallas quarterback also planned to sit out a day of practice this week, the latest indication that the Cowboys are closely managing the 34-year-old Romo's recovery. Romo pushed himself through a long practice on the team's ninth workout day of camp Sunday. He had been off the previous two days and skipped two practices earlier. "It doesn't feel that much different than the other days, but we're just out here more time and with more plays," Romo said after throwing 25 passes in 7-on-7 and team drills Sunday. "We've been executing real well so it was good to see that again today." Seven, months removed
from surgery for a herniated disk, Romo says he's 100 percent but acknowledges that his workout routine has changed significantly.
He gets cold water treatment three times a day. And he's constantly stretching and exercising the muscles around the back. He says that back surgery means "you kind of have to change the way you do things."
"But that .doesn't mean you can't do the things that it takes to be successful on the field or whatever you want to do," Romo said. "There's been plenty of people who've done it. You just got to go do it. It just takes work."
Romo has tested the back by going through consecutive afternoon practices several times in camp. But he hasn't done three in a row yet, and won't this week. If the camp model becomes part of the routine in the regular season, Romo could be sitting out a practice each week.
"If it was up to me, I am going to do everything," Romo said. "And then they'll say, 'You're done. You did too much.' We go, go, go and then you're hurt, and you're out instead of being smart. So that's why we have a lot of people that are smart and take this' progression a long way." With Romo saying he's

out, Brandon Weeden is likely to get the start against the Chargers on Thursday night. "He's going to be smart about it," Weeden said of Romo. "I don't worry about it. If he's 34, 39, doesn't really matter. He's a franchise quarterback. He's been doing it for so long. He knows what it takes."

while diving for a pass in a scrimmage. Coach Marc Trestman said it's too soon to know how long the seventh-round draft pick from Washington State will be out.
Wilson is vying for the No. 3 wide receiver spot behind Brandon Marshall and Alshon Jeffery, and appeared to be leading, according to Trestman.
Eric Weems, Josh Morgan, Armanti Edwards, Michael Spurlock, Chris Williams, Dale Moss and Josh Bellamy are the other wide receivers trying to secure a roster spot.
Vikings sign veteran safety Chris Crocker
MANKATO, Minn. -The Minnesota Vikings have signed veteran safety Chris Crocker to give new coach Mike Zimmer some insurance on the unproven back end of his defense. Crocker signed on Monday Terms of the deal were not disclosed, but the 12-year veteran played seven seasons under Zimmer when he was the
defensive coordinator at Cincinnati and Atlanta. It's the third straight summer that Zimmer has coaxed Crocker out of a planned retirement to play for him. Zimmer needs Crocker in Minnesota to try to help shore up the safety spot opposite standout Harrison Smith.
Robert Blanton appeared to have the inside track to the starting job, but he injured his hamstring and will miss several weeks. Jamarca Sanford and Mistral Raymond haven't stood out and Andrew Sendejo is just returning from injury.

Montee Ball to undergo appendectomy
The Associated Press
ENGLEWOOD, Colo. - l)enver BrOncos starting running back Montee Ball is sidelined with appendicitis and isn't expected back until the AFC champs' opener against Indianapolis on Sept. 7.
Ronnie Hillman and C.J. Anderson shared snaps with the first-string offense at practice Monday and are expected to get the bulk of the work in Ball's absence this month. "I appreciatethe get well wishes everyone! I will be OK and come back stronger than ever!!" Ball tweeted Monday shortly before he was scheduled for his appendectomy at a Denver hospital. Ball, who set an NCAA record with 83 touchdowns at Wisconsin, assumed the No. 1 running back job this offseason. He was Knowshon Moreno's backup last year and ran for 559 yards and four touchdowns in 2013.
"Luckily it's early in camip and it'll give him a chance to come back," Hillman said. Ball's strong second half helped the Broncos decide to let Moreno leave in free agency. Moreno signed with Miami. Coach John Fox'said Ball started feeling sick Sunday during the Broncos' day off "and of course came in today, again, not feeling very good." Fox said the good news was that the organ didn't bu rst "so it was really a blessing that we'caught it now." The Broncos have little doubt that Ball will be able to resume his role as the Broncos' lead back upon his returp.
"I'm not into predicting the future, but he's really grown a lot as far as his understanding of the offense and execution of all parts of his job," Fox said. "Knowing what kind of guy he is, he'll work at it and mentally he'll stay on top of his game and then when he comes back physically, we'll wait until he's ready."

Browns defenders wear
boxing gloves in practice
The Associated Press
BEREA, Ohio - The Browns are ready to rumble.
To prepare for the NFL's crackdown on defensive holding this season, the team is making its cornerbacks 'and safeties wear boxing gloves during training camp practices. The smaller, mittenlike gloves - used by kickboxers and in mixed martial arts - are meant to deter players from latching onto jerseys of wide receivers, an allowable tactic in the past but one that will draw a penalty flag now.' When he first saw the padded gloves, Browns Pro Bowl cornerback Joe Haden didn't know what to think.
"I came out and we had boxinggloves on," Haden said. "It was crazy." Not long after putting them on, Haden was beaten on a long pass by wide receiver Travis Benjamin, who came back on his route to haul in a throw from rookie quarterback Johnny Manziel. Haden tried to get his hand on the ball, but the glove didn't allow him.
to tip it away Haden, though, understands the cross-sport technology. "With the way they're calling the game so tight now, they want to make sure we can't grab or put our hands on a receiver," he said.
Browns coach Mike Pettine hopes the gloves can help retrain defensive backs from clutching and snatching anything they get their hands on. "You've got to get guys out of that habit," he said. "It's more the mentality that they know they have to be able to cover more with an open palm than grabbing and restricting, especially if the rule is going to be called as tightly as we're told it is." During a scrimmage in Akron on Saturday, nickel back Buster Skrine and safety Johnson Bademosi were both penalized for holding. As tight end Gary Barnidge came out of a break on a pass route, Bademosi grabbed a handful of his jersey and got busted. Skrine, too, was too hands-on during coverage and was flagged by the officials. Those infractions, and a warning issued by the
league at the start of camp, caused the Browns to, well, think outside the box and break out the gloves.
One of the Browns doesn't think the gloves are useful.
"Not for me," rookie )ustin Gilbert said. "I haven't gotten any holding calls. We have a couple of guys that have a couple of holding calls. So that means everybody's got to wear the gloves." Gilbert said he drew "a couple" of holding calls at Oklahoma State, but he questioned whether he was guilty of any violation.
"They weren't really penalties, but flags were thrown," he said. "But that's not a part of my game. I don't grab and hold. I just play technique and use my athletic ability to make plays." While he's not thrilled about the boxing gloves, Gilbert was excited to meet Hall of Famer Deion Sanders, who stopped by camp on Monday. Gilbert said he's long admired "Prime Time," who warned him that opposing teams will pick on him.

Packers adding Favre to Hall of Fame in 2015
The Associated Press
GREEN BAY, Wis. Brett Favre is returning to Titletown.
The quarterback, estranged from the franchise he helped resurrect during his 16-year career, will be inducted into the Green Bay Packers Hall of Fame and have his number retired next July 18. Favre's No. 4 will be unveiled on the Lambeau Field north end zone facade at halftime of a yetto-be-determined game during the 2015 season. "I'm truly honored," Favre said Monday via conference call from his home in Hattiesburg, Mississippi. "It is time to come back."
Favre, who holds virtually every meaningful NFL career quarterback record, famously retired at a tearful press conference in March 2008, only to change his mind and decide later that year that he still wanted to play, setting up an Awkward showdown between hin and the team he'd come to embody while winning three NFL MVP awards and leading the Packers
to a Super Bowl title. He was traded to the New York Jets for what would end up being a third-round draft pick, an acrimonious parting of the ways that divided the Packers' loyal fan base.
After one year with the Jets, Favre retired a second time, only tojoin the rival Minnesota'Vikings, for whom he played two seasons.
Favre led the Vikings to two victories over the Packers during the 2009 season, when Minnesota advanced to the NFC championship game but lost to the eventual Super Bowl-champion New Or-. leans Saints.
In 2010, the Packers beat Favre and the Vikings twice on their way to the Super Bowl title, led by Favre's successor, Aaron Rodgers. Favre retired for good following the 2010 season, while Rodgers went on to win the NFL MVP award in 2011.
Former Packers president/CEO Bob Harlan served as the intermediary and brought the two sides back together.

Dear Annie: During the middle of my freshman year in high school, I was in the midst of training for my first real track season. My winter workouts gradually gained intensity, and my food intake gradually started to drop. Initially, the more weight I lost, the easier it became to complete tough workouts. With that mentality, I slipped into the world of anorexia nervosa, thinking that eating less and exercising more would translate to success in athletics.
I struggled with the disorder in silence for months, dropping from 130 to 98 pounds on my 5-foot-7 frame. I'd eat a granola bar for breakfast, run five miles in 100-degree heat and then fall asleep in an attempt to ignore the hunger pangs. The only person who ever directly confronted me about my weight loss was my volleyball coach. I lied about how "I was fine" and attributed my dizziness and inability to focus to a hectic schedule. I became terrified that my inability to compete was a result of laziness, so I started running. About 10 minutes in, everything went black. I collapsed on the ground, but no one saw, and I didn't tell. But it made
me realize my actions were spiraling out of control, and I finally sought help from my family doctor. It took years to undo the damaging behavior that had developed in a few short months, and those thoughts still nag at me today.
Eating disorders plague more high school students than are diagnosed, simply because people refuse to speak up if they see that something is wrong. Those few words from my coach helped me realize that I had a problem, freeing me from the firm grasp of denial. If you or someone you know may be suffering from an eating disorder, please reach out to a qualified mental health professional immediately. Losing a few pounds can quickly spiral into losing a life without the proper treatment.
Dear Nebraska: Thank you for writing. We are sure you have helped more people than you realize. If you recognize yourself or someone else in this letter, we hope you will contact the National Association of Anorexia Nervosa and Associated Disorders at anad.org.
One of the arts of good bridge is reading the cards - working out who has what from those played. That is Important for West in this deal. How should he plan the defense against three no-trump? West leads the heart four: three, jack, queen. South plays a club to dummy's king, then runs the diamond jack. After winning with his queen, how should West continue?
South starts with only five top tricks: two hearts (given trick one) and three clubs. Obviously he will play on diamonds for more winners, with spades on the back burner if necessary.
Several years ago, during an interview, I was asked what is the one thing I teach my students that they never seem to get straight and I cannot understand why. This is what I answered. When playing third hand high on defense, you play the bottom of equally powerful cards.
In this deal, when East plays the heart jack at trick one, he denies holding the 10. So West, reading the cards, knows that South started with the heart ace, queen and 10. This means that leading another
heart cannot be right. West needs to get East on play for a heart lead through South.
Enter the second key rule: If you lead low from length, you guarantee at least one honor in that suit. Here, West should shift to the spade eight, high denying an honor. Then East should win with his ace and return the heart seven, resulting in South's going down two.

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
In this Dec. 14, 2013 file photo, Forida State quarterback Jameis Winston poses with the Heisman Trophy after winning the award in New York. The Atlantic Coast Conference owns some prized possessions that once were property of the Southeastern Conference: A national championship trophy, a Heisman Trophy, and national respect - mostly because of Rorida State's unbeaten season..ï¿½
From Page 1B
The Cardinals seem to have the players - and the resources - to remain competitive during their
step-up in competition.
PRODIGAL PETRINO: The
new coach for the ACC's newest team isn't really all that new Bobby Petrino is back in charge at Louisville. He took a circuitous path that included a messy scandal at Arkansas to lead him back to the Cardinals.
THE GOLDEN DOME This
is the first year of Notre Dame's scheduling arrangement with the ACC.
The independent Irish play four games against ACC schools as part of their membership in all other sports the league sponsors. Notre Dame will play host to North Carolina and Louisville, will visit Florida State and will face
- Syracuse in East Rutherford, New Jersey. QB QUESTIONS: Only four schools return their full-time starting quarterbacks from 2013, and only one of those players 'O(Dke's Anthony Boone) started a game before 2013. The QB with the most career starts? Winston, the redshirt sophomore who started all 14 games of the Seminoles' national title run. CLOUDY COASTAL The Coastal Division could be a crapshoot. Miami was voted as the preseason favorite even though both defending champ Duke and North Carolina each received more first-place votes than the Hurricanes. "I believe anybody can
win it," Tar Heels coach Larry Fedora said. MIAMI'S DUKE RETURNS:
Miami running back Duke Johnson says he's at 100 percent after breaking his ankle last season against Florida State. Johnson appears to be the league's top offensive player not named Jameis Winston.
DUKE REDUX? What can Duke do for an encore? The Blue Devils are coming off the best season in school history - winning 10 games, claiming the Coastal title, finishing at No. 23 in the AP Top 25 and reaching the Chickfil-A Bowl. ACC Coach of the Year David Cutcliffe says he believes his program is getting stronger.
REALLY SPECIAL TEAMS:
ACC teams combined to return 16 kickoffs and punts for touchdowns last season, and North Carolina's Ryan Switzer tied an NCAA single-season record with five punt returns for scores. SECOND TIME AROUND:
Both Pittsburgh and Syracuse went 7-6 and reached low-level bowl games in their debut ACC seasons. They both want to do more in Year 2. Said Pitt coach Paul Chryst: "As proud as we are to be members of the ACC, our goal and objective is to make an impact on it." BIG G4MES: There are a few marquee nonconference games early in the ACC season. Florida State opens with Oklahoma State in Irving, Texas, while Clemson heads to Georgia. The following week, Virginia Tech visits Ohio State, and later, Southern California heads to Boston College and Miami travels to Nebraska.

Spurs hire WNBA star Hammon as assistant
The Associated Press
As a 5-foot-6 point guard, decorated WNBA veteran Becky Hammon has never had the experience of shattering 'a backboard with a dunk.
She's busting through the glass ceiling instead.
The San Antonio Spurs hired Hammon as an assistant coach on Tuesday, making her the first fulltime, paid female assistant on an NBA coaching staff. When Hammon retires from her 16-yearWNBA career at the end of the San Antonio Stars' season, she will immediately

"We have some fast guys that can run a little bit and speed always helps. That's where most of the offense comes from," Addison said. "The hardest part of the offense is to learn the formations, and having*expedenced skill guys allows us to do more."
Faulk and Hall in particular are going to need to have big seasons from a production standpoint to try to replace the 1,662 rushing yards and 19 touchdowns of Calhoun.
The duo combined for 1,263 yards and 14 TDs a year ago, but they'll be counted on to up those numbers in 2014.
"I feel like they're ready, and if we can get any kind of blocking for them, they'll be big for us," Addison said. "The biggest thing we need from them is leadershipWe need them to be the rock of the team. When adversity strikes, we need them to be able to push the guys through it.
"Production-wise, they just have to make plays. We

move to the staff of the defending NBA champions, working with the revered Gregg Popovich on scouting, game-planning and the day-today grind of practice like no woman has ever done before.
"Nothing in my life has really ever been easy. I've always been someone who did it uphill," Hammon said. "I'm up for challenges. l'mup for being outside the box, making tough decisions and challenges.,., And I'm a little bit of an adrenaline junkie. Throw those all in there and this was the perfect challenge and opportunity."
That makes her fit right in with the
don't talk about exact num-bers, like how many yards they need to get. They just need to be there every day focused and ready to go." Stepping in at quarterback will be junior Justin Lipford, who becomes the second consecutive firstyear starting signal-caller for CHS, but Addison said he believes he could bring a different dimension to the Homets' offense. How ver, the coach said there's'still more to being a QB than just making plays
"Justin can make more throws than Klotz, but he's not the leader that Klotz was just yet," he said. "When (Upford) gets that part down and learns to stay cool under pressure and handle adversity, he has a chance to do pretty well He can make all the throws we ask of him and has no problem running the offense. I'm pleased with his progress so far.
If Upford and the other skill players are to find successthisseasontheHomnpts will have to find answers on the offensive fine, a position low on size and experience, though Addison said the group is pointed in the right direction.
Spurs, an organization with a reputation for bold decisions. Popovich and general manager R.C. Buford have long been at the forefront of the league's international influx and earlier this summer hired European coaching legend Ettore Messina as an assistant. I I During the 200 102 season, Cleveland Cavaliers: coach John Lucas, brought Lisa Boyer into the team's practices and some games. Boyer, now an assistant at South Carolina, Was not paid by the Cavaliers and did not travelwith the team, but did work with the players and Coaches thatseason.
"We've come a long, long way from May 1. It's night and day for me," the coach said of the 0-line. "But we're still a long way from where we need to be to be able to compete up front. They've got to get stronger and they've got to get the mental part down. They just have to get some experience. I could sit here and go over plays and teaching techniques all daylong, but eventually you have to go out there and get hit in the mouth and figure this thing out."
Thelackofexperienceisn't limited to the trenches, with the roster as a whole much more of a work in progress than was the case going into the 2013 campaign.

"Ifs very tough. Last year, we had some guys with experience, so we'started ahead of the game,",Addison said. "We didn't have to go back and teach a bunch of little things. This year, we're basically starting over from scratch." The Hornets will host a preseason jamboree Aug. 21 against RJ Munroe and North Bay Haven before opening the regular season Aug. 29 at home

"That's just part of the game and you have to live with those things and just keep playing. If the girls go out and play like they're capable, we are by no means out of this tournament." Williams said.
Wanting to be the best at any cost
