Larry's sister had been on the phone with her husband, Maurice Williams, when the crash occurred. Although FHP reports say that she lost consciousness behind the wheel, the open phone line allowed her husband to hear the rolling crash as it occurred. He quickly rang Larry, aware that he was in the vicinity because the brother and sister had just moments before been together at the Dollar General store in Malone.
According to FHP reports, Tameka Williams had crashed into a stop sign on State Road 71 in Malone, then into a chain link fence, with the impact sending her car under the fence and through a field along the bank of a retention pond. Her car hit a second section of chain link fence before coming to rest and catching fire.

Trek mountain bicycle attached to the back at the Marianna Police Department
on Green Street Wednesday afternoon. Scarborough, who has been with the police force for about five years, received the first of three Treks that will be added to the fleet of MPD vehicles. He said he believes the bikes will help officers serve the area better because they will be able to patrol more alleys, get closer to businesses and work at festivals and community events with ease. The bikes are equipped with front and rear lights and officers will hear a safety helmet while riding them. Scarborough says the new bikes will help the police department achieve its goal of "being proactive, innovative and having fun in the process."

Jackson County Commissioners balanced the 2014-15 budget Tuesday by cutting hundreds of dollars worth ofequipment buys that were proposed by Road and Bridge, nixing a couple of staff vehicle purchases requested by Fire Rescue, and shaving other costs.
For instance, they de-
shop with in-house labor rather than hiring the job out. They also cut by half their new building set-aside, lopping down to $100,000 from the 'raditional $200,000' that is put aside for ghe purpose of building a new administrative structure in the future.

Board addresses snag
MARIANNA - The bud-
process for the Jackson County S c$ h o o I Board hit a snag late last week, when Fin a n c e Director
Kathy Sneads got word from the state of a problem with one portion of the proposed millage rate. A revised rate and tentative budget will be before the board today. At issue was the Florida Education Finance Program (FEFP) Required Local Effort (RLE) millage rate, which a Department of Revenue representative informed Sneads did not, but should have included 0.006 Prior Period Funding Adjustment Millage (PPFAM), as required by State statute.
A revised tentative budget, which was advertised this week, reflects an adjusted RLE of 5.042 and adjusted total millage of 6.160. Previously advertised expenditures remained the same. Sneads said the staterequired PPFAM is anticipated to generate $9,212 in additional revenue for
the school district. Board members had been informed of the correction prior to Monday's special meeting, which was called in order to ap-' prove advertising a revised budget proposal and public hearing for same. Along with board members, Sneads, who has been steering budget creation for the last three of her 18 years with the school district, was unfamiliar with the PPFAM issue when it was initially brought 'to her attention by DOR, but she assured the board, "it won't be missed by me again." Since the district is still in what's called the preTRIM (Truth-in-Millage) stage of the budgeting process, Sneads said the State doesn't view the PPFAM omission as a violation or non-compliance. "We're in pre-TRIM phase, so there's time to deal with corrections," Sneads said by phone Wednesday, adding that property appraisers are expected to have tax notices mailed to property owners by Aug. 24. A public hearing to decide the budget and taxes is set to begin at 5:01 p.m. today in the board room at 2903 Jefferson St., Marianna.

'Street view' goes undersea to map reefs, wonders
The Associated Press
ISLAMORADA - It's easy to go online and get a 360degree, ground-level view of almost any street in the United States and throughout the world. Soon, scientists hope people will be able to do the same with coral reefs and other underwater wonders.
U.S. government scientists are learning to use specialized fisheye lenses underwater in the Florida Keys this week in hopes of applying "street view" mapping to research and management plans in marine sanctuaries nationwide. Some of the rotating and panoramic images will be available online this week, including a selection on Google Maps, giving the public a window into ecosystems still difficult and costly to explore for long stretches of time. It will be like scuba diving from your computer. About 400,000 images have been produced so far of reefs off Australia and in the Caribbean, but this is the first time the technology is being used in U.S. waters.
The images in the U.S. will add scale and details to data that has already been collected, and illustrate the successes and failures of coral restoration.

putting up a special preservation area around this particular spot," said Mitchell Tartt, chief of the conservation science division at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's Office of National Marine Sanctuaries. The basketball-shaped, triple-lens SVII cameras use the same technology that's used to produce Google Street View images of neighborhoods on land. Instead of being placed on top of a car, the 143-pound riggings are tethered to scuba divers and powered
through the water by small motors. Smaller versions mounted on tripods also are being tested in the Keys this week.
In images previewed Monday by project director RichardVevers, endangered elkhorn coral, bleached fields of dead coral and coral nurseries suspended like hanging plants in the Keys' blue waters were in sharp focus as they rotated on screen.
In an hour-long dive, each camera can capture images over an area up to 20 times larger than what's
available with traditional underwater photography equipment, Vevers said. The technology also records GPS data and quickly stitches the images together into panoramic views or 360-degree views. The cameras and training in the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary for six NOAA officials are being paid for as part of a partnership with the Catlin Seaview Survey, funded by the global insurance company Catlin. Google is also a sponsor.
The images that have
been produced so far from other Catlin surveys are being uploaded online to the Catlin Global Reef Record. The project also moves next into Southeast Asia, Vevers said.
While the main survey continues worldwide, the smaller cameras will be available for targeted projects within NOAA sanctuaries, such as gauging the effectiveness of preservation zones in California's Monterey Bay sanctuary, or they could help measure the impacts of landslides that fall into the water.
The corporate sponsorship offers consistency in equipment, training and data, Vevers said. Catlin's sustainability director, John Carroll, would only say the cost was "fairly substantial."
The benefit to the Bermuda-based company also would be substantial, he said, because there are a lot of insurable assets that depend on climate change. "Clearly as an insurance company, we're keen to help manage this risk because, you know, that's our business," Carroll said.
Judge rules against Scott in lawsuit TALLAHASSEE -A
Florida judge is ruling against Gov. Rick Scott in an ongoing lawsuit over public records. Chief Circuit Judge Charles Francis on Wednesday granted a request from a critic of the Republican governor to subpoena records from Google and Yahoo. Attorney Steven Andrews wants information on private email accounts that may have been used by the Scott administration. Francis made the ruling over the objections of Jacksonville attorney Thomas Bishop. Bishop maintained the records were irrelevant and part of a "fishing expedition." But Andrews said during a brief hearing that former aides to Scott maintain the governor uses private emails to conduct state business.
Andrews is currently suing Scott and Attorney General Pam Bondi over whether they hid records related to a dispute over
land located near the governor's mansion.

Artist guilty in vase-smashing MIAMI - A South Florida artist has pleaded guilty to a criminal mischief charge for smashing a vase that was part of a museum exhibit by noted Chinese dissident artist Ai Weiwei.
Maximo Caminero entered the plea Wednesday. He agreed to 18 months' probation, payment of
$10,000 restitution to an insurance company for the destroyed vase and 100 hours of community service at local art programs.
Caminero also issued a letter of apology. At the time, Caminero said he was protesting what he
thought was lack of support for local artists by the new Perez Art Museum Miami. Caminero now says that was wrong. The vase was one of.16 in an Ai installation at the museum.

Celmate: Murder suspect detailed killing student
The Associated Press
GAINESVILLE - Pedro Bravo's former cellmate turned jailhouse informant testified Wednesday that Bravo watched the clock on his SUV's radio as he strangled a University of Florida student with a moving strap in 2012.
Michael Angelo, a convicted Crips gang member, testified during Bravo's murder trial that Bravo confided in him about kill-
ing 18-year-old Christian Aguilar in September 2012 and disposing of the body. Bravo's defense immediately called Angelo's credibility into question, indicating he was testifying in exchange for a lighter sentence in his own trial and had informed in other cases.
Bravo, 20, is charged with murder, kidnapping and other charges related to Aguilar's death. He has pleaded not guilty.
Jurors watched as Angelo, clad in red and white jail clothes, described in granular detail how he met Bravo shortly after Bravo's arrest, when the two were put in the same cell. Bravo cried a lot, and stared at the ceiling for hours when they first met, Angelo said. Angelo said he read about Bravo's arrest the next day in the newspaper, so kew about his case.
"I said 'You probably
killed that kid,"' Angelo recalled, referring to Bravo's weepy demeanor. "He really didn't answer or say anything."
Angelo said the two bonded over drawing and doing graffiti, and that they began to talk.
Bravo asked him for a pen to write a suicide note to his parents, and for Angelo's shoelace so he could commit suicide. Angelo said he gave him the pen, but not the shoelace.
Prosecutors say Bravo Angelo said Bravo slid a wrote the letter, which was note under his cell door
later found by a guard in the cell.
In it, Bravo said he was "a monster for hurting Chris the way I did," according to a copy of the letter read in court.
After being isolated on suicide watch for a couple of weeks, Bravo returned to the same area of the jail and restarted communications with Angelo, prosecutors said.
one day asking for his help to cover up the murder. "I guess because before all this occurred I had some recruiting charges, gang charges. And he looked at it like I had people on the street who could do something for him," Angelo said. Bravo's attorney said Angelo had offered to move Aguilar's body for $2,000, an accusation denied by Angelo on the stand.
Florida Gov. Scott approves new congressional map
The Associated Press
TALLAHASSEE - Gov. Rick Scott on Wednesday signed off on new maps that will alter several congressional districts in the state, but it doesn't appear the changes will end the legal tussle over them.
Scott approved a new map that was agreed to just two days earlier by the Republican-controlled Legislature.
The map will be presented to a Florida judge who ruled that the state's current congressional map included districts that were illegally drawn to help the GOP Judge Terry Lewis had given legislators until Aug. 15 to come up with a valid map. But the groups that challenged
the existing map said they will ask Lewis to reject the one approved by this week. The judge has a hearing scheduled for next week to go over the revised districts. Deirdre Macnab, president of the League of Women Voters of Florida, said the new map "looks suspiciously like the map" that had previously been ruled unconstitutional. She also faulted lawmakers because the proposal ultimately approved was initially drawn up in closed-door meetings between two top GOP legislators, attorneys and legislative staff. "The Legislature continues to make a mockery of the process, destroying public trust and confidence in our democracy," Macnab said in a statement.
"Until the Legislature can restore that trust, Floridians must continue to look to the courts to hold lawmakers accountable." The new map approved this week reshapes the boundaries of seven of the state's 27 congressional districts. The districts are located in central and north Florida.
Voters in 2010 passed the "Fair Districts" amendment that says legislators cannot draw up districts to favor incumbents or a political party, a practice known as "gerrymandering." A coalition of groups, including the League of Women Voters, contended that the GOP consultants used a "shadow" process in 2012 to draw districts that benefited Republicans and, violated the
Lewis agreed there was enough evidence to show that consultants helped manipulate the process and ruled that two districts were invalid. The two districts flagged by Lewis are a sprawling district that stretches from Jacksonville to Orlando and is held by U.S. Rep. Corinne Brown, a Democrat, and a central Florida district held by U.S. Rep. Dan Webster, a Republican. The new map alters those two districts somewhat, but also changes the boundaries for five other districts. Two GOP held districts, for example, would become slightly more Democratic, but the swing is not that significant. Republicans hold a 17-10 edge in the state's
congressional delegation and the new map may not change that. The League and the groups that sued had suggested that legislators shift Brown's district away from central Florida and into north Florida.
Legislative leaders contend the new map was drawn up free of partisan influence and complies with Lewis's rulings. House Speaker Will Weatherford defended the initial closed-door meetings because legislators had to condense their normal process to comply with the deadlines imposed by the judge. "We had to work on a map that we believe addressed the legal concerns that Judge Lewis had and that's what we did," Weatherford said on Monday.
Justin Bieber pleads guilty in dealin Florida
The Associated Press
MIAMI -Pop singer Justin Bieber's guilty plea to charges of careless driving and resisting arrest puts an end to a legal saga that began seven months ago inside a rented Lamborghini at what police called an illegal drag race. The judge who accepted Bieber's plea Wednesday said it's time for the 20-year-old singer to stop his misbehavior especially for his millions of young fans. "I hope that he realizes that his actions not only lead to consequences that affect him but they lead to consequences that affect others that are looking up to him as a role model," Miami-Dade County Judge William Altfield said at a hearing. "He just hopefully will get the message. He will grow up. He will use his talents positively for young persons."
Bieber attorney Howard Srebnick said the judge's message will be relayed to the singer, who was not at the hearing.

This Jan. 23 file photo made available by the Miami Beach Police Department, shows Justin Bieber at the police station in Miami Beach. According to two people directly involved with the case, Bieber pleaded guilty to lesser charges in his January arrest in South Florida after what police initially described as an illegal street drag race.
nick said. "We're relieved that it's over."
The plea' deal Bieber struck with prosecutors includes a 12-hour anger management course, a $50,000 charitable contribution already made to a local children's organization and a $500 fine. The deal allows Bieber to avoid
a conviction of driving under the influence and includes no jail time.A charge of driving with an expired license was dropped when Bieber showed proof he had a valid one. Bieber was arrested early Jan. 23 in Miami Beach after what police described as an illegal
street race in an upscale residential neighborhood, with Bieber's Lamborghini and a Ferrari driven by R&B singer Khalil Amir Sharieff. Neither was charged with drag racing, and there was little evidence they were exceeding posted speed limits, although police said Bieber's security vehicles
had blocked off one end of the road.
Still, Miami-Dade State Attorney Katherine Fernandez Rundle said Miami Beach officers were right to stop the pair.
"The ultimate purpose of the Miami Beach Police Department's initial traffic stop was to end some rash juvenile type conduct before a tragedy occurred," she said.
Alcoholbreathtestsfound Bieber's level below the 0.02 limit for underage drivers, but urine tests showed the presence of marijuana and the anti-anxiety drug Xanax in his system. Bieber also was charged with resisting arrest after a profanity-laced tirade against police officers. The urine test became a battle between Bieber's lawyers and media
companies - including The Associated Press seeking access to video of the test. The lawyers said it was an invasion of privacy. Ultimately, Altfield ordered the video released with sensitive portions blacked out. Other police video depicted Bieber walking
unsteadily during a sobriety test.
In July, Bieber resolved another criminal case by pleading no contest to a misdemeanor vandalism charge for throwing eggs at a neighbor's house in Los Angeles. In that case, Bieber agreed to pay more than $80,000 in damages and meet a number of other conditions. Bieber also is charged in Toronto with assaulting a limousine driver in late December. His lawyers have said he is not guilty in that case.
Back in Miami, Bieber is being sued by a photographer ,who says he was roughed up while snapping pictures of the singer outside a recording studio. The Canadian-born
Bieber shot to stardom at age 15, with his career overseen by two music industry heavyweights, singer Usher and manager Scooter Braun, after initially gaining notice through YouThbe videos. He was nominated for two Grammy Awards for his 2010 full-length album debut "My World 2.0."

A demonstrator throws back a tear gas container after tactical officers worked to break up a group of bystanders on Chambers Road and West Florissant on Wednesday in St. Louis. Nights of unrest have vied with calls for calm in a St. Louis suburb where an unarmed black teenager was killed by police, while the community is still pressing for answers about the weekend shooting.
ID of officer who killed teen festering issue
,The Associated Press
FERGUSON, Mo. - In the days since an unarmed black teenager was shot dead by a white police officer in a St. Louis suburb, a big question that's smoldered amid the outrage of many is who the officer is. Authorities have refused to release the name of the officer who shot 18year-old Michael Brown in Ferguson. Ferguson Police Chief Thomas Jackson has said he's concerned about the officer's safety amid numerous death threats. Computer hackers have also targeted the city's website and released details online about individual city employees. But civil rights activists and the attorney for Brown's family, all pressing for calm amid nights of unrest since Saturday's shooting, counter that knowing the officer's name may help the area to heal, allowing the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People and others to dig into the officer's background for any prior brutality. "We don't want anyone's life threatened. If someone like this officer is killed, then there is no justice," said John Gaskin III of St. Louis County's NAACP
chapter. "What the officer may have done is certainly unacceptable, and we are outraged. But we want to be realistic here: This is a man with a family." Investigators have released few details, saying only that a scuffle unfolded after the officer asked Brown and another man to get out of the street, and that the officer's weapon fired at some point inside a patrol car. Witnesses say Brown had his hands raised when the officer repeatedly shot him. The shooting has exposed deep racial and economic fault lines in the community, with the release of the officer's name a festering demand of protesters, as well as activist computer hackers. In the aftermath of Brown's death, the group Anonymous said in online postings that it was monitoring police treatment of Ferguson's protesters and threatened to disrupt the suburb's government websites.
On Monday, someone burrowed into the city website and shut it down for much of the day. Representatives of Anonymous have taken credit. Separately someone snipped City Hall's fiber-optic cable during a protest that
day, Jackson said. Jackson, whose 53-person police force includes just three black officers, said he was unaware whether the hackers obtained any personal information about his officers. But, he added, "I don't know why they'd sit on it if they did."
On Tuesday, hackers went after St. Louis County's chief, Jon Belmar, whose department has been asked to investigate Brown's death.
Some posted pictures of Belmar's home and family online, as well as his home address and telephone number.
"Realistically, what positive could come from that information coming out?" Jackson said. "Right now, people want it so they can destroy that person's life. That's the only reason that group's asking for it." At a Tuesday night community meeting, Belmar and the county's prosecutor, Robert McCullough,
said law enforcement won't release the officer's name unless criminal charges are filed. Still, impatience grows by the day.
"We have the right to know, and the family has the right to know who murdered their son," said Sahari Gutierrez, a 27year-old Ferguson legal assistant.
"The community is crying out for transparency, and we want to be able to know what kind of person
would shoot an unarmed kid in broad daylight," said Ben Crump, the Brown family's attorney who also represented relatives of Trayvon Martin, the 17year-old fatally shot by a Florida neighborhood watch organizer who was later acquitted of murder. "Can you imagine if you are parents of a child shot multiple times in broad daylight and police won't even tell you the name of the shooter? That doesn't inspire confidence."

Brain exercises * ei M nrrr ,-,-,r,r t--r.,
Maintaining concentration and keeping the memory sharp are a daily challenge for students. Fortunately, brain power is supple and can be developed by exercising it. Here are a few tips that can facilitate learning and remembering:
1. Good posture: sit comfortably, with back straight, shoulders relaxed, and feet flat on the floor. Avoid crossing your legs or, even worse, slumping over your desk. 2. Relax: inhaling and exhaling deeply through the nose allows you to relax and increase your level of concentration.
3. Choose to be attentive: be curious about what the teacher may have to say; don't let yourself be distracted, and ask questions.
4. Take notes: as well as facilitating memorization, note taking doesn't leave room for day dreaming. It helps you stay alert and focused.
5. Explain things to yourself or to someone else: read over your notes, then hide them and explain out loud what you've just read.
6. Use your imagination: who says studying has to be boring? Singing while
reading or varying the tone of voice while reading aloud stimulates different areas of the brain. This varied brain activity makes memorizing easier and faster.
7. Draw a picture: a picture is worth a thousand words-the smallest of scribbles is easier for the brain to remember than a single word.
8. Take a break: go outside during break-time. Think about something else, move around, and laugh. It will relax you and help you feel good.

'A long road to hoe'
KRISTIE CLOUD / FLORIDAN
Graceville High School junior varsity quarterback Charlie Nichols prepares to hand off the ball as coach Butch Burrell looks on Wednesday in Graceville.
JV Tigers try to overcome youth against tough schedule
BY DUSTIN KENT
After a year as a middle school program, the Graceville Tigers' junior varsity team will return to action in 2014, though it will still look very much like a middle school squad. Graceville went 5-1 in its last season as a JV program in 2012 under coach Butch Burrell, who returns after a year away and inherits a team that will have just one ninth-grader on the roster in offensive lineman Clark Dohrenwend to go with 10 eighth-graders and 11 seventh-graders.
Even for a modified JV team, it's an especially young roster, with Burrell saying that he knows his group will have a tough task ahead of it this season with a schedule that includes four games against other modified JV teams. "We've got a long road to hoe," he said. "It's going to be tough and we may take a few lumps, but I think we're going to be OK. We're a very young team, but I think we'll be fine. The kids are upbeat like crazy and ready to go. I think we'll be good."
The middle school Tigers went 3-3 last season, though nine of the team's 10 eighth-graders have moved on, making the core of this squad relatively new.
"It's going to be tough and we may take afew lumps, but I think we're going to be OK. We're a very young team, butI think we'l befine."
Graceville JV football head coach
However, Graceville does return its starting quarterback in eighth grader Parker Aultman, who Burrell said would be needed to step up as a leader this season.
"He's grown a lot mentally and gotten tougher and grown a lot physically for sure, but mentally I think he's going to be alright," the coach said. "He's going to have a lot more on him this year. He's got to step up and lead the team and have confidence in the huddle so that will breed into the plays we're going to run.
"If a quarterback goes in and acts scared in the huddle, then everyone else is going to be scared. The QB has to be confident and I believe he has that confidence."
The Tigers lost some of their top ballcarriers from a year ago like Tyler Jones, James Wilson, Julian Severson, and Cameron McClain, but Charlie Nichols, Joseph Clayborn, and Sage Ennis
all return to the backfield to step into larger roles this year, with Burrell saying Clayborn could be a major factor in 2014.
"I think he'll have a breakout year," the coach said of the eighth grader. "He's just a fast kid and comes straight at you. He'll make you tackle him. You can't just reach up and grab at him to tackle him. If you do that, then it's going to hurt."
Though the coach likes his young talent, getting them all up to speed and on the same page is an ongoing process with precious little time to materialize before the team's first action Aug. 26 in a jamboree in Vernon. But Burrell said he believes the Tigers will compete very well against their schedule this season despite their youth and inexperience.
"I think we're going to surprise a few people," he said. "We've got some good speed and some size on the line. Most of the these kids worked out and lifted weights all summer, so the majority of them are in good shape. I'm nervously excited about it, but I'm excited. I think we can do a lot with this group. They are giving 100 percent in practice and trying to learn."
Graceville opens the regular season Sept. 2 at home against Cottondale. -
Heisman repeat won't be easy for Winston
The Associated Press
TALLAHASSEE - Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston has the opportunity to accomplish what only one other player has achieved - win the Heisman Trophy twice.
Twenty-three underclassmen have won the award, but Ohio State running back Archie Griffin was the only one to pull off the feat.
He is shocked that he remains the lone double winner since the award's inception in 1935. Until recently, the majority of winners were seniors or juniors that could turn pro. But five of the last seven winners have been sophomores or redshirt freshmen. Griffin, the Heisman trophy winner in 1974 and 1975, believes it is more difficult to win the award in back-to-back years than it was 40 years ago. For him, the off-the-field distractions were more stressful than any defense. "I'll never forget that I was trying to do everything for everybody and (coach) Woody (Hayes) called me into his office," Griffin said. "He told me, 'You know

LIFE 16 FULL
Dear Annie: My dad passed away three years ago. He was one of my best friends, and we shared a love of classic automobiles.
The day Dad died, I chose to stay at work rather than go to the hospital. I run a business, and if I don't work, I don't get paid. That evening, when I tried to console my mother, she asked, "Where were you?" She refused to look at me, so I left. To my mother and her side of the family, it seems I am always doing the wrong thing. It was Dad who encouraged me to go my own way. My sister and her husband took over the sale of my mother's house. I didn't ask for anything. However, I do know classic car restorers and offered to help with the sale of my father's cars when Mother said she wanted to get rid of them. When I found a potential buyer for one last month, Mother informed me that she had given the car to my sister as a thankyou for all the work she and her husband had done for her during the sale of her home. Supposedly, they are "restoring" the car and plan to keep it in the family. No one bothered to tell me. I was angry and upset.
My friends all agree that my mother was wrong to give the car to my sister without telling me. I can no longer trust any of
them, so either I let it go or cut ties. Who knows what else they've kept from me? If they truly cared about me, they would include me in family decisions. I was working on becoming closer to make up for our estrangement after Dad died, but now I feel betrayed. I am tired of paying for a debt I do not owe.
- MISSING DAD
Dear Missing:You seem to be in complete opposition to your family. They say "left," and you say "purple." Perception means a great deal. When you stayed at work instead of being at your father's side, your family interpreted that to mean you didn't care. When your mother then gave you the cold shoulder, you should have apologized instead of leaving. From her perspective, if you don't care, why should she give you the cars to restore? And you believe that because you and Dad shared a love of those cars, she should have given you a voice in the decision.
You aren't communicating in the same language, and your anger is clouding the issue. Before the estrangement becomes permanent, please see whether you can work on this. Ask Mom to go with you for counseling. We hope she will so you both can express yourselves with a mediator present to translate.
Brigham Young said, "Silence may be golden, but can you think of a better way to entertain someone than to listen to him?"
Can you think of a better way to find the best opening lead than to listen to the bidding?
Look at the West hand and the auction in today's diagram. What should West lead against four spades? When the opponents are cruising toward a game or slam, pay attention. In particular, work out how many points each player has. And sometimes you will also know the distribution of at least one opponent's hand - as in this deal. North announced five hearts, four clubs and three spades; his hand had 3-5-1-4 (or perhaps 3-5-0-5 or even 3-6-0-4) distribution. He also promised extra strength, usually 15 or 16 high-card points. With a minimum, he would have raised one spade to two spades.
South showed game-invitational values
with three-card heart support. Then, when he preferred four spades to four hearts, he indicated five spades.
Given that dummy is very short in diamonds, leading that suit has little appeal.

Opening lead: ??
(Yes, it works
if East wins the first trick and shifts to a low club.) A trump is too passive. The opponents have bid quite strongly, so it is probably right to lead actively. That means choosing the club jack. East takes dummy's queen with his ace and returns the suit. Then the defenders can take two clubs, one diamond and one heart for down one.

g N QUESTIONS & ATTITUDE
EtECompelling questions and maybe a few actual answers
Questions we just had to ask - ourselves
Getty Images/CHRIS GRAYTHEN Raise your hand if you had AJ in your office pool.
Is AJ the biggest Chase surprise?
GODSPEAK: I can't call this an upset, but it was nice seeing a fresh face in Victory Lane.
KEN'S CALL: I'd rank him a bit more surprising than Aric Almirola, but the biggest shocks are those who'll miss the Chase.
Should Watkins Glen be a Chase date?
It is one of the most entertaining races each season and should get the spotlight.
KEN'S CALL: In the new Chase format, probably not.
Questions or comments?

. . ........
AJ may have been a little rusty on the victory celebration,I
AJ Allmendinger's journey to racing redemption is complete after his carpe diem-style victory Sunday at Watkins Glen International.
Just over two years ago, Allmendinger's racing career derailed after he was suspended by NASCAR for a substance abuse policy infraction.
Worse yet, it happened on the day of the 2012 Coke Zero 400 at Daytona International Speedway, which left Team Penske scrambling for a replacement driver for its No. 22 entry.
Roger Penske released Allmendinger several days later, and the young driver watched all that he worked for crumble under his feet.
After serving his NASCAR
timeout, Allmendinger picked up a ride here and there to finish out the '12 season, and then made 18 starts for two different teams in '13.
Penske threw him some work, too, including a six-race IndyCar Series deal that included the Indianapolis 500 (he finished seventh), and two NASCAR Nationwide road-course starts. Allmendinger won both of those events for "The Captain."
By the end of 2013, Allmendinger had a deaj with JTGDaugherty Racing, also known as the "little team that could."
Godwin Kelly is the Daytona
S B each News-Journal's
motorsports editor and has
covered NASCAR for 31
years. Reach him at godwin.
Associted Press/R BRENT SMITH It was another sack of bad luck for Harvick.
JTG-Daugherty ended its go-italone mentality and aligned with Richard Childress Racing this season.
All the stars aligned Sunday. Allmendinger won his first Sprint Cup race on his 213th attempt, got the No. 47 Chevrolet qualified for the Chase and will be part of the Sprint All-Star Race next year in Charlotte.
Daytona, July 7, 2012 seems like a long time ago after Allmendinger's first visit to Sprint Cup Victory Lane.
"Over the course of what
happened, it made me become a better person and just really
Gety Images/TOM PENNINGTON but hey, it had been a while.
try to understand what life is all about, because unfortunately, the sport will take over your life," Allmendinger said, adding it was character-building to be "able to go through all that and come out the other side."
EXTRA BAGGAGE ON BOARD
Kevin Harvick had to make an unscheduled pit stop at the start of Sunday's race when he found a canvas bag under the seat of his car. "(NASCAR) weighs the car with the actual driver weight in there," Harvick said. "The bag just got left in there, and I spent a couple of laps trying to get it positioned off to the left."
Instead, it ended up under his feet. "I had to come in and get the bag out," Harvick said. Harvick finished seventh after the excess baggage was removed.
ANOTHER MAJOR CRASH
Michael McDowell doesn't crash small. He does it on a grand scale. His No. 95 Ford was spun like a top before it smacked and tore down a fence Sunday.
McDowell completely destroyed a car at Texas during qualifying in 2008.
"I thank the good Lord above," he said Sunday. "That was a bad wreck. It seems when I do it, they are usually fairly big."
GODWIN'S MICHIGAN PICKS
Winner: Greg Biffle Rest of the top five: Kevin Harvick, Kasey Kahne, Clint Bowyer, Matt Kenseth Dark horse: Marcos Ambrose
Disappointment: Jeff Gordon First one out: Alex Bowman Don't be surprised if: Michigan provides another driver with a ticket into the Chase.
Getty Images/RAINIER EHRHARDT All of Tony's past storms now seem rather insignificant.
What happens to Stewart now?
Since there's no template for this type of racing tragedy, there's no way of knowing how this situation evolves. We do know there's absolutely nothing anyone can do to make it better. Over his career, Tony has always managed to plant himself in the middle of storms, often triggering them himself. But nothing from his history compares to this. Not even close. It's hard to imagine his life, much less his career, ever being the same, Do we feel sorry for him?
Don't know. Nothing will allow us to hit the rewind button, put Kevin Ward Jr. back in his sprint car and make it all go away. The investigation will play out and maybe we'll learn if there was anything Tony could've done to avoid it. Meanwhile, folks will continue to come to their own conclusions. Watkins Glen's future?
Watching Sunday's battle for the win, some will suggest a road-course race - the Glen, particularly - should be in the Chase. But with the Chase now broken down into three threerace segments before the Homestead finale, a road race would make up one-third of a playoff segment and therefore give too much weight to a form of racing that's not part of NASCAR's DNA.

FEUD OF THE WEEK
Marcos Ambrose vs. AJ Allmendinger: Let's call this a "friendly feud" because the two scratched and clawed each other for the win at The Glen. Godwin Kelly gives his take: "Both knew winning Sunday's race would be their best (only?) chance to make the Chase and raced accordingly."

Drivers concerned about safety after violent crashes at The Glen
There were a couple of unusually hard crashes during Sunday's race at Watkins Glen International, prompting several Sprint Cup drivers to discuss the safety of the 2.45mile road course.
Ryan Newman, after a Lap 57 crash "We lost John Melvin here in the last
couple of weeks, and he did a lot of innovations for our sport. It's really sad that they haven't adapted any of them here at this race track. The SAFER Barrier doesn't exist here, there are no concrete walls. It's just a very antiquated race track. The safety is not
at all up to NASCAR's standards, and it's a shame that we have to have accidents like that to prove it."
"That rubber wall with the tires just sucks the cars in, spins them around and spits them out. I definitely think there are areas on the track where it's good, like down in Turn 1, but I think there are other parts of the track where there could be something better than that."
Race winner AJ Allmendinger
"It's a tough scenario. This is the second or
third time we've seen a big wreck. I think we need to do something to help make it a little bit safer over there. I agree with Ryan (Newman) a little bit. We're going too fast now and a one- or two-inch mistake like we saw right there can cause a big crash. NASCAR does a great job to keep us safe. I'm sure we'll look at something there and keep trying to make us safer and safer."
Dale Earnhardt Jr.
"I'd love to have some concrete walls and SAFER Barriers, but it's a lot of concrete that would have to be put up here. We've been
running through guardrails for 50 years, so I don't think they've got them perfected.
"They do the best they can and we're going way faster here than we used to go. When the car bounces back out on the race track, it's hard to avoid and you're going to get slung into the guardrail and hit that thing harder than you would expect, and I don't know what else they can do. It would be too expensive to put walls around it and SAFER Barriers and all that stuff.
"You trust in what they're doing, and I'm glad nobody is hurt."
