Jason Lee studied character details down to the way theyd drink a glass of water or sit down in a chair. Lee originally comes from Bonifay. The North Gaston High theater arts teacher, actor, director and former Holmes County resident died Aug. 17 of a heart attack. He was 36. Lee performed and directed productions at The Little Theatre of Gastonia in addition to teaching students. He served as president of the board for a year. He really had a shy streak in him, said Leslie Hodnett, past president of The Little Theatre of Gastonia. He wasnt the usual typical performer that we get at the theater that is outgoing and loud. He was very pensive and quiet. Lee thought out how his characters would act down to the ne points, she said. And he taught his students to do the same thing. And thats why his students were award winners, said Chuck Stowe, South Point High drama teacher. He was absolutely and totally devoted to his students. His knowledge of theater was phenomenal. Lee came to Gaston County from Montgomery, Ala. I had worked in Montgomery and taught in Montgomery, so when he came up here, the moment we met we had an instant bond, Stowe said. He was one of my best friends. Lee was a giving and caring person, Stowe said. He held a wealth of information about the theater and passed that on to his students. Stowe said he thought Former Holmes resident and noted teacher, actor dies 50 www.bonifaynow.com Wednesday, A UGUST 24 2011 Volume 121, Number 19 For the latest breaking news, visit BONIFAYNOW.COM Phone: 850-547-9414 Web site: bonifaynow.com Fax: 850-547-9418 INDEX Arrests ..................................

B7 INSIDE Tarpon worth the effort A6 Happy Corner A4 Living the American dream B1 By Steve Liner Managing Editor sliner@bonifaynow.com Organizers and members say the Tea Party movement is alive, vibrant and growing in Holmes County and is centered on the North Central Florida Tea Party Patriots organization. The group met last week, complete with a nationally known speaker, whose reputation as a voice in the movement is growing with the publication of his new book. The groups Aug. 18 meeting at Simbos Restaurant had about 40 in attendance. Dr. B Leland Baker, author of Tea Party Revival: The Conscience of a Conservative Reborn: The TEA Party Revolt Against Unconstrained Spending and Growth of The Federal Government, was the guest speaker. Originally from Colorado, Baker is enjoying growing popularity as a speaker, members said. In fact, two members of the Marianna Tea Party group who heard him recently drove in for the meeting to hear him again. Baker used a PowerPoint presentation to aide his discussions. The founding fathers planned the federal role to be limited in power, with certain powers assigned by the constitution to the three branches, Baker suggested. What didnt fall within these guidelines was reserved to the states or to the people, he said. Baker writes in his book, Politicians rely upon confusion and obfuscation the more complicated they make a concept sound, the harder it is for taxpayers to challenge. During the Bush and Obama administrations, the federal government has consistently obfuscated the facts. Baker said he believes that, whether Democrat or Republican, most agree that national spending and the decit are out of control and the government must practice some scal responsibility for the future of our country and future generations. Baker went on to say that federal spending programs lack transparency and withholding important details concerning their nances and functions make them unconstitutional and out of control, claiming that since 1964, there has been $17 trillion in unconstitutional spending. Activist speaks with Tea Party By Steve Liner Managing Editor sliner@bonifaynow.com It was grim news in Flor ida as state unemployment gures remained at 10.7 per cent for the second straight month while decreasing by another 22,100 jobs. Still, Holmes County remained steady at 8.4 percent. That means the county had 748 persons actively seeking work in July. Mixed signals from economic indicators dur ing recovery are common, said AWI Director Cynthia R. Lorenzo. Fluctuations in rates of unemployment and job growth are typi cal examples of starts and stops while the economy rebounds and unemployed workers who may have given up looking for work rejoin the workforce. As Governor (Rick) Scott con tinues to pursue new jobs for our state, our agency is committed to ensuring job seekers are connect ing with job placement and training services that will position them for these opportunities. Gov. Rick Scott did not release a statement about the unemployment num bers, relying instead on his weekly radio address to continue to push his back to work program that em ulates a program started by former Gov. Bob Gra ham during his 1978 cam paign while he was seeking initial election. Monroe County, home of the Florida Keys, con tinues to have the states lowest rate of unemploy ment at 6.6 percent. It is followed by the Panhandle counties of Walton (6.9 per cent), Liberty (7.2 percent), Okaloosa (7.4 percent) and Franklin (7.8 percent). Hendry County had the states highest unemploy ment at 18.8 percent. Washington County remained at 11.2 percent unemployment. Holmes unemployment 8.4% County unemployment rate remains lower than states 10.7% JASON LEE S TEVE L INE R | Times-Advertiser Dr. Leland Baker, speaker at last weeks Bonifay Tea Party meeting, is greeted by Sybil Andreasen and Elaine Thompson of the Marianna group.

Expires October 12, 2011 By Randal Yakey Florida Freedom Newspapers CHIPLEY Margarette Jackson Kent walked into the bedroom where her mother, 80-yearold Orea Thomas, lay dead after be ing discovered the morning of Aug. 13. Willie Jean Thomas, 58, of Chi pley, said when her 63-year-old sister went into her moth ers bedroom, she leaned over and whispered some thing in her moth ers ear. I think she said something like, Mother, dont leave me, Willie Jean said last week. When she came up, she clutched her chest and started hav ing problems breathing. Later that morning, Margarette passed away. They were very close, Willie Jean said. The morning had start ed just like any other. Willie Jean said she woke her niece and told her to get her grandmother up for breakfast. Willie Jean said she was in the familys kitchen when she heard her niece call for her. My niece found my mom when I sent her in to get her up for breakfast, said Willie Jean, sitting with her hands folded in the Battle Memorial Fu neral Home along Martin Luther King Boulevard in Panama City. We met in the hallway where she told me, Momma is gone, and I said, No, let me go in and check. I thought maybe her sugar had dropped, she continued. When I went in, I couldnt get a pulse. She was gone. Ahrianna Thomas, 17, of Chipley, was the rst to discover her grandmother at about 8:40 a.m. I put my hand under her nose, and she wasnt breathing, Ahrianna said. She gently shook her grandmother to wake her. I went to get my auntie and I said, I think she is gone, Ahrianna said, referring to her grandmother. Willie Jean said she called her sis ter, Margarette, who came down with her son, Dar rin Kent. Emergency medical techni cians were already on the scene. Ahri anna said Marga rette waited as the EMTs attended to her mother, then went inside the bedroom and whispered to her mother. Ahrianna said it was about that time she heard Margarette scream. She said, I cant breath. I have to get out of here, Ahrianna said. The EMTs put Marga rette on oxygen and took her to the hospital. A short time later, Wil lie Jean said she received a call from Margarettes youngest son, Darrin, say ing his mother had died. I think she may have been gone when they left from the yard, said Wil lie Jean, her eyes ashing downward, seemingly try ing to hold back a tear. We all were very close, Willie Jean said, her voice cracking. My sister and I worked in the same place in the same job. I think she (Marga rette) knew she was sick and the Lord took her that quickly behind Momma be cause he didnt want her to suffer, Willie Jean said. I kinda think she wanted to go with Momma. Mother, daughter die on same day 2 still wanted in narcotics investigation By Cecilia Spears Staff Writer spears@chipleypaper.com The Washington County Drug Task Force made 14 arrests and continues to seek two others in as sociation with a narcotics investiga tion, according to a report issued Friday. The DTF consists of the Chipley Police Department and the Wash ington County Sheriffs Ofce The recent arrests follow a nar cotics investigation that spanned several months. According to a DTF report, the investigation in cluded the sale of pharmaceuti cals, crack cocaine, controlled substances and large quantities of marijuana. Youre looking at the culmina tion of months of intensive nar cotics investigations by task force members who spent hundreds of hours ensuring the following threats were eliminated from our community, said Police Chief Kevin Crews. Our guys put a tre mendous amount of dedication into these cases, and our community is safer today because of their work. Arrested were: Steven LeShaun Davis, 37, Chi pley, charged with the sale and de livery of crack cocaine. Mark Stephen Daldry, 51, Chi pley, charged with sale and delivery of marijuana. Clinton Douglas Corbin, 18, Chi pley, charged with sale and delivery of marijuana. Dwight Lonzo Watford, 42, Chi pley, charged with sale and delivery of crack cocaine. Mitchell Terrell Brigham, 24, Chipley, charged with the sale and delivery of crack cocaine. Mekkos DeShawn Davis, 29, Chipley, charged with sale and de livery of marijuana and violation of probation. Heather Nicole Fleming, 25, Chi pley, charged with two counts of sale and delivery of crack cocaine. Bobby Earl Lee, 44, Chipley, charged with principle to public crimes.

The DTF also reports that two individuals are still at large and are being sought at this time. The two wanted are Brandon Shane Wise, 21, Vernon, on sus picion of possession of drug para phernalia, possession of listed chemicals and driving while license suspended; and Leah L Henry, 27, Chipley, on suspicion of two counts of selling crack cocaine. This is another win for our Drug Task Force with the successful ap prehension of so many known drug dealers in our community said Washington County Sheriff Bobby Haddock. With the severe cut in budgets to our rural departments, we have to capitalize on every re source available, which is why the collaboration of investigators as part of the Drug Task Force is vital. What we will not do is let up, slow down, remove the pressure or turn our back on the illegal drug activity in our community. Failure is not an option. The DTF asks that anyone with information on illegal drug activity contact the Sheriffs Ofce at 638TIPS (8477) or by email at tips@ wcso.us.

NEW YORK (AP) A new survey says salaried U.S. workers can expect anoth er year of modest raises in 2012. After increasing sala ries by 2.6 percent this year and last year, compa nies are planning a 2.8 per cent bump in 2012, benets and human resources con sultancy Towers Watson reported Monday. Thats somewhat small er than raises in the last decade. From 2000 to 2006, the year before the Great Recession began, salaries rose an average 3.9 per cent for workers who were not executives. And the modest bump may not help add much buying power for shoppers. In the 12 months through July, prices for consum ers have risen 3.6 percent, according to the govern ments latest calculations. Salary increases have been small, even though many companies are sit ting on huge cash stock piles. Theyre being con servative with permanent salary hikes because of uncertainty about the economy and memories of the deep cuts during the recession, said Laura Se jen of Towers Watson. Because of worries about the economy, com panies are trying to avoid xed costs, such as per manent payroll increases, Sejen said. Hiring has also been tepid this year. More than 9 percent of the countrys workers, or 13.9 million people, are unemployed. Instead, companies are trying to pure more emphasis on the variable components of compensa tion, she said. That means bonuses; which make up a far bigger chunk of total pay for executives than for other salaried work ers 41 percent this year, versus 10 percent. Salaries for executives are also expected to rise 2.8 percent next year, the survey said. The human resourc es company conducted the survey in June and July, polling 773 U.S. companies. Survey: Small raises for salaried workers in 2012 NEW YORK (AP) Oil prices around the world should start falling if Libyan rebels succeed in toppling Moammar Gad has regime, though the full effect wont be felt for months. On Sunday night, rebel forces pushed into Tripoli without meeting much re sistance hours after they overran a major military base that defended the capital. Opposition ghters cap tured Gadhas son and one-time heir apparent, Seif al-Islam. Independent analyst Andrew Lipow said oil markets will likely respond Monday by sending prices lower in a sign of relief that conict has come to the end. But Lipow said it will take time for the mar ket to erase the hefty price increase that resulted from the suspension of Libyan oil exports since the rebel lion began in February. Brent crude for October delivery was down $3.22 per barrel to $105.40 on Londons ICE Futures ex change. Benchmark oil for September delivery was down 25 cents to $82.01 a barrel in electronic trading on the New York Mercan tile Exchange. Crude fell 12 cents to settle at $82.26 on Friday. When ghting broke out, oil was trading at around $84 a barrel. It quickly spiked above $93 and kept rising to a high above $110 at the end of April. Demand from emerging markets includ ing China was also a factor in the rise. Oil has fallen recently along with stocks because of concerns about the glob al economy. Libya used to export about 1.5 million barrels of oil per day, almost all of which have been cut off. Although Libyan oil amounted to less than 2 percent of world demand, its loss affected prices be cause of its high quality and suitability for Euro pean reneries. The European rener ies have struggled to make up for the production loss despite an increase from Saudi Arabia. As a result, European markets should see the rst and most signicant drops in oil prices, Lipow said. He added that any de velopments in the ongoing European nancial cri sis could also move stock markets around the world this week and oil prices along with them. Independent analyst Jim Ritterbusch said that even if rebels manage to push Gadha out soon, the near-term effects on oil prices will be limited. Psychologically any way, its going to force some additional selling, Ritterbusch said. But selling may not be pro nounced because theres still a lot of question marks remaining on how long it would take for production to resume. Michael Lynch, presi dent of Strategic Energy & Economic Research, said that once Gadha is pushed out, Libyas new government could take the path of the Iraqis after the fall of Saddam Hussein and spend years ghting over every detail. Or it could follow Ku waits example and quick ly decide to bring in an outside company to get production restarted right away He added that theres always a chance that the process could come to a halt if one of the rebel gen erals tries to seize power, or if different factions get caught up debating the countrys new constitution and put off making deci sions about oil production. They do have a good cadre of educated people, but they dont have a long record of competent selfgovernment, Lynch said. It would not be a bad bet to think there might be a chaotic period for a few months till they get organized. Oil prices should fall with Gadha overthrow WALTON, N.Y. (AP) Authorities say theyve charged a former Florida man in the fatal stabbing of a 20-year-old man in a rural upstate New York village. Police in Walton in Del aware County say 20-yearold Lejuan Wainwright was charged with seconddegree murder in Satur days late-night stabbing that occurred during an argument with the victim outside a residence in the village, 75 miles south west of Albany. Authorities havent re leased the victims name. Wainwright was sent to the Delaware County Jail without bail. A mes sage left at the ofce of his attorney, Aaron Dean, wasnt immediately returned. Police say Wainwright moved to Walton from St. Petersburg, Fla., earlier this year.

Albuquerque police say that the suspect Garcia tried to coax the girl into a green van late Monday afternoon before pushing her into the vehicle.

Whatever happened, do you suppose, to goodness? When did it stop being part of public service, do you think? Let me be quick to say that Im not speaking about our local ofcials. Instead, Im calling Congress, the President and others to account. Seems to me, we got rid of King George (not George Bush, King George III) because his interests were not ours. He wanted to tax us. He wanted to take what was ours as a kind of divine right. Well, call me judgmental, but it seems to me the same thing is happening now just with an American signature. Now, dont get me wrong. This is not a party issue with me. Ive listened intently to the president and the speaker of the House of Representatives, straining to hear basic goodness. Ive turned up my hearing aid so I wont miss a message that says, I know and understand what you are going through. Ive listened intently for some indication that government cares about individuals and their problems. Nada. I dont begrudge the rst family a vacation, but Marthas Vineyard? Sheesh. And Lord knows where the speaker is. You know, truth is, compassion is much more important to me than even the decit or Wall Streets tanking last week. I yearn to hear some national leader go beyond appreciating the service of our veterans to thinking how to stop breaking up American families, disrupting lives and killing and maiming. As school starts, I want national leaders to focus attention on opportunities for the amazing young people I have seen graduating from our local schools. In short, I want goodness. I want politicians to hurt when they have to spend my money and my prospects. No more bridges to nowhere! Lets have bridges to somewhere. No more mindless expenses! Lets have investment in a renewed, prosperous future. No more wars! Lets have a defense program that is not a serious of police actions costly in lives and wealth. Lets have a defense program that actually defends us and our way of life. Again, lets have goodness in public service. Opinion One of the ventures that gave the small farmers of Holmes and Washington Counties hope for success was the sweet potato business in 1947. According to the family story by Kathryn Zappolo Treadwell in The Heritage History Of Holmes County (Page 573), her father Fred Zappolo came to Holmes County with sweet potato producing in mind. His nephew, Carl Colombi and wife Ada, his brotherin-law, Clarence Son and wife Philomena and their son Richard came to Holmes County shortly after. (Kathryn stayed on in Washington, D.C., to nish the ninth grade while her sister Jeanne nished high school, coming to Bonifay the next year.) Carl Colombi, a salesman for the Chef Boyardee company, had met Dr. Joseph Vara when Vara was sent to company headquarters in Milton, Pa., by the army to inspect their food products prepared for military use. In a conversation with Dr. Vara, Colombi mentioned his interest in growing sweet potatoes commercially and Dr. Vara persuaded him that Holmes County would be the ideal place. The Zappolos bought the W. W. Stott place northeast of Bonifay and moved to Bonifay in 1947 while the Colombis moved to town. They bought certied Puerto Rican sweet potatoes and raised the draws in hot beds to provide farmers with a jump-start on the growing season. Having sweet potatoes ready for market four or ve weeks before principal growers were ready for market was important for success. The farmers agreed to sell their crop back to Red Feather Foods, the company Columbi and Zappolo established in Holmes County on E. Highway 90 across from the present-day farmers market. No. 1 and No. 2 potatoes were packed in 5-pound boxes and sold to Winn Dixie in Jacksonville. The cull potatoes were kiln dried whole for hog feed and chipped for cow feed. This arrangement was successful until 1950 when the farmers couldnt supply the potatoes to meet the demand. Mrs. Treadwell doesnt say in her article why the farmers couldnt meet the need, but my dad was one of those farmers. I remember it very well, because he had allowed me to call one acre of the potatoes mine as a 4-H project. We children didnt mind the sweet potato production as much as some of the other truck crops we raised, partially because it wasnt as labor intensive as eld peas or some other crop. Peas, green beans, butter beans, and eld corn had to be picked twice a week; okra daily; sweet corn almost daily. But sweet potatoes was a one-time harvest. They didnt require much hoeing, only plowing, which Daddy did as one of the boys turned the vines with a long stick such as a broom handle. When they were mature they were plowed up and then we crawled along picking them up. Many potato wars broke out as Clyde and I toiled along, lagging behind older brothers Jim and Perry or whoever else was working with us. However, Jim and Perry were well out of the home by the sweet potato venture and Clyde and I were teens by then. The year my potatoes were to be harvested, disaster struck. The underground tubers became infested with wire worms, which destroyed the developing potato, making them unt for consumption. Down went our dream of making a prot on potatoes that year. Down went Mr. Zappolo and Mr. Columbis dream of providing a steady market for Holmes County grown potatoes. Farmers in the area still grew their own potatoes for home use. As winter approached, one of the chores required to prepare for cold weather was banking the potatoes. At our home, we leveled a spot south of the barn, lined it with pine straw and placed the potatoes in the bank. Then, more pine straw was piled on top and covered with burlap bags. After that, shovel-fulls of dirt were heaped on the top to insulate from freeze. During the winter, it was often my job to go out to the barn and dig out enough sweet potatoes for Mama to ll the big old black baking pan full to bake in the wood stove oven. I have never found anything tastier or more satisfying than a soft hot baked sweet potato slathered with homemade butter or even oleo margarine.

Lee was a warm, fun person who often laughed and joked. He was at North Gaston for four years and really built some strength into the theater program, Stowe said. Lee stepped down at the end of the school year. One of his goals was to teach at the college level, so he was planning to go to graduate school to earn the credentials. He was planning to study childrens theater and acting. Hodnett directed Lee in Oklahoma. He played Judd Fry, a hired hand with a sinister side. It was so out of character. He had to play the opposite of his own sweet self, Hodnett said. He was the gentlest soul. Lee starred as Aslan the Lion in Narnia, the Musical. The kids loved him, and the whole cast loved him, Hodnett said. He was really a team player. Lees creativity meant no two characters he played were the same. Every one of Jasons character were individual and unique, Stowe said. Lee directed The Little Theaters teen Youth Workshop last summer. The kids really adored him, and he was like a mentor for them, Hodnett said. I think he made a lot of difference in a lot of kids lives at his school. The news of Lees death shocked the tightknit theater community and the arts educators at Gaston County Schools. He was a committed teacher who loved theater arts, said Stephanie Jackson, Gaston County Schools director of arts and physical education. He worked tirelessly to help his students experience success at all levels I considered him to be a visionary in the theater arts. His students presented original productions they had written for competitions and took home awards for both writing and acting. Lee worked to make sure students understood all aspects of a production from the historical perspective to learning how to play a role. He collaborated with other teachers and was part of the theater arts family. He loved life, Stowe said. He had so much to offer, and he gave it so freely.

ORLANDO (AP) Casey Anthony has returned to Florida. Speaking Sunday on Fox News Geraldo at Large, Anthonys attorney, Jose Baez, said shes in Florida and will report to a proba tion ofce in Orlando to start probation if an appeal fails. We are going to fol low the law wherever the courts follow the law and I am certain she will do whats asked of her if necessary and hopefully it wont come to that, Baez said. Circuit Judge Stan Strickland sentenced An thony to a year of probation in Janu ary 2010 after she pleaded guilty to stealing checks from a friend. At the time, Strickland said Anthony should serve the probation upon her re lease, but those instruc tions never made it into a written order. Corrections ofcials interpret ed the sentence to mean Anthony could serve the proba tion while she was in jail awaiting her murder trial, where she was acquitted in the death of her 2-year-old daughter, Caylee. Strickland claried in an order earlier this month that Anthony must begin her probation now that she is out of jail. He then recused himself from the case and turned it over to Judge Belvin Perry, who had presided over Antho nys murder trial. Perry upheld Stricklands order and Anthonys attorneys last week led an appeal with the Fifth District Court of Appeals in Day tona Beach. In the appeal, Antho nys attorneys accused Strickland of bias, citing an appearance on Nancy Graces television show in which he said he was shocked by the mur der trial verdict. Grace has been a vocal critic of Anthony. The attorneys also ar gued Strickland couldnt amend the order since the probation sentence had al ready been completed. The order also violates double jeopardy since Anthony would be serving the same sentence twice, they said. If the order is upheld, Anthony has until noon Friday to report to the pro bation ofce. Since her release from jail following her acquit tal, Anthony has kept a low prole and her exact whereabouts have been a secret.

One drew a disturbing picture of beheading the southwest Florida couple and throwing a party. When the Carlsons adopted the now teenage boys from foster care in 2007, they were handed a slim le with few details except that the two suffered from attention decit hyperactivity disorder. No one told the empty nesters the boys had severe mental health issues and had bounced between foster homes. Now teenagers, the boys are living in separate therapeutic group homes. Therapists say one son needs to be in a supervised residential facility, which the state will no longer pay for, unless the Carlsons turn back custody to the state. We love him and hes part of our family. To have to make such a difcult decision to get him the care he needs is ludicrous. It sends a horrible message to him, said 55-year-old Deb Carlson. You really feel like once you sign on the dotted line youre on your own. Youre totally abandoned by the state. While the overwhelming majority of adoptions end happily, some families like the Carlsons say they werent told about their new childs psychological problems and cant get help from the government agencies that recruited them. Their complaints come amid a nationwide push to nd homes for older foster care children and those with serious behavioral and mental health problems, which can emotionally and nancially drain adoptive families. Most states focus money on recruiting parents, but once a child is adopted, few funds are directed to supporting the new families, some experts say. About 50,000 foster children are adopted annually in the U.S., almost double the number in the 1990s. We place them in an adoptive home and we dont support or train the parents ... we sometimes set families up to fail and then those children are placed back in the system, said Rita Soronen, president of The Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption. The Ohio nonprot estimates more than 20 percent of the nearly 6,300 foster children it has served came from a failed adoption. But theres no national data to show how many adoptions fail or track how many children need additional help, and states arent required to track or report the gures. Florida is among the few states tracking so-called disrupted and dissolved adoptions, which happens when adoptive families return children to foster care while in the process or after nalizing the adoption. Florida had nearly 200 dissolved or disrupted adoptions in 2008-2009. There were 3,777 total adoptions that same year. However, most of the dissolved adoptions each year are actually adoptions that took place in previous years. In Oklahoma, one child advocate said half of the 14 boys in the group home where she worked had been adopted and returned to the system. A Pennsylvania adoption program estimates about 60 of the 200 foster children they work with come from failed adoptions. A majority of failed adoptions involve older children with trauma issues, including reactive attachments disorder, or RADS, where children struggle to bond and act out against their adoptive families. Some have been victims of sexual abuse and, in turn, act out sexually on other siblings in the home. States typically cover a portion of care, but that coverage can run out quickly. The costly services can drain private insurance, leaving parents forced to pay out of pocket or return their child to the state to access government-funded mental health services. Many states have relinquishment policies that force parents to choose between keeping their children and getting them help. Those who do relinquish their children may face criminal abandonment charges and might not be eligible to adopt again, said Mary Boo, assistant director of the North American Council on Adoptable Children in Minnesota. States could fund the treatment and not bring the kids back into foster care but they dont. Its a way to keep the states from having to pay the bill, Boo said. The demand for more postadoption services comes as most state child welfare agencies are already slashing budgets. Programs vary widely across the country, from telephone assistance lines that link parents with services to intensive family therapy sessions and respite care. Theres little research evaluating which programs work best, making it difcult to get funding. Floridas Department of Children and Families has trained more than 150 therapists to work with adoptive families. More than a dozen of the agencys private contractors have hired case managers to work with families after the adoption. Ohios program offers adoptive parents up to $10,000 for services a drop from $20,000. A few states, including Pennsylvania and Illinois, offer robust programs and are even increasing services. Casey Family Services, covering New England and Maryland, has expanded over the past three years after hearing from more families in crisis. Diakon Adoption and Foster Care in Pennsylvania, which specializes in nding homes for hard to place foster children, also had an increase in failed adoptions. Diakon connects families with a case manager to help with school problems and links them with therapists and other medical help. Services also include support groups and respite care, but families can only receive them for one year. But in Florida, the Carlsons encountered problems when they tried to get counseling and post adoption services for their boys: The organizations waiting list was so long, they eventually told the Carlsons they couldnt help anymore. The boys cant be left alone or play in the neighborhood like normal teens. Each week brings new crisis. Deb Carlson quit her job as a payroll manager to deal with the chaos. She spends hours on the phone navigating the system. A nonprot advocate recently agreed to take one sons case in hopes of getting the state to pay for more residential care. Deb Carlson doesnt understand how a loving familys noble ambition to help neglected foster children could turn into such a nightmare. You have these idealized visions, you treat them nicely and give them things and make up for all the things they didnt have in their life, she said. All of the resources Ive found I did on my own. In May, several child welfare organizations lobbied Congress for more post-adoption services to help families like the Carlsons. Sen. Amy Klobuchar, D-Minn., introduced a bipartisan bill that would have required states to spend a portion of the federal dollars they already receive on adoption services and accurately report failed adoptions, but the bill stalled in committee. The minimal services could make a big difference for these families. They feel very abandoned sometimes. We dont even have the statistics to look at when it goes wrong, how and why, Klobuchar said. Its very hard to improve things if we dont have that data. Problems arise in adoption of troubled kids AP Deb Carlson, left, and her husband Doug, right, have lunch with their adopted sons in Valrico, Fla.

OUTD OO RS www.bonifaynow.com | www.chipleypaper.com Send your Outdoors news to news@chipleypaper.com A Section If you are planning on catching king mackerel and using live bait caught around a buoy as part of your plan, sometimes surveying the bait situation will save you a lot of time. Cigar minnows and green backs hang around buoys and the chains and anchors that attach them to the bottom for several reasons. The main one is it gives them protection from predators. If you are observant you have noticed while catching bait around buoys that you can tell the direction the current is running by which side of the buoy the bait is on. They will always stay on the upcurrent side of the buoy. I would imagine the reason is because the cigar minnow farthest away from the school will be the one that gets whatever they are feeding on. And to do so that cigar minnow will be positioned upcurrent as far from the protection of the buoy as possible. Sometimes he gets a little too far and we know what happens then. It is a pleasure to anchor close enough to a buoy to catch live bait and then hook that bait on and catch king mackerel as fast as possible. In this manner you have a constant amount of live bait at your disposal. Of course sometimes the kings simply will not cooperate and the next thing you know that smoker you hooked runs around the buoy chain. Two weeks it didnt seem to matter at which buoy you caught your bait, the kings were all around and eager to bite. This past week was the opposite. Approaching a buoy you found the bait spread out in every direction and many yards from the protection of the buoy. That indicates the king either were gone or they just werent feeding. Try as you might with the liveliest cigar minnow or herring you couldnt even get a bonito to bite. When it comes to shing for kings, if the bait is staying a long distance from natural protection you might be in for a long day of shing. If they are bunched up against the buoy and occasionally showering, you might be in for some fun.

SUBMIT YOUR HUNTING AND F I S HING PHOTO S TO NEW S @ C HIPLEYPAPER.COM Scott Lindsey Outdoor Writer captainlindsey@knology.net SPECIAL TO FLORIDA FREEDOM Savanah White, 13, caught this redsh at the jetties in St. Andrews State Park. By Stan Kirkland Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission The coastal waters of Florida are home to a wide variety of sh, but tarpon have few equals when it comes to strength and jumping ability. Commonly called silver kings, tarpon are found all along the Gulf Coast in the summer months and as far north as Virginia in the Atlantic. Tarpon can grow to 8 feet in length and weigh up to 280 pounds. Theyll eat anything from minnows to pinsh to mullet and crabs. There are increasing numbers of tarpon guides, particularly on the northern Gulf Coast, who cater to clients wanting the thrill of catching a big tarpon. In the Panhandle, they sh for tarpon in Apalachee Bay off St. Marks, Apalachicola Bay, St. Joe Bay and the Crooked Island area at Tyndall Air Force Base. While a number of marine sh are prized for the taste and texture of the meat, thats not the case with tarpon. Tarpon are boney and they are usually released. Those who do want to harvest or possess a sh must rst obtain a $50 harvest tag from the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC). The anglers and guides who target tarpon can help sheries scientists at the FWCs Fish and Wildlife Research Institute and at Mote Marine Laboratory gather valuable information by participating in the Tarpon Genetic Recapture Study. Participating anglers collect DNA samples from each tarpon they catch and then ship those to the study team. Each tarpon has a unique DNA ngerprint and the samples tell the researchers which sh have been captured before. In 2010, anglers provided more than 3,100 tarpon DNA samples. Researchers say approximately one out of every 100 sh is a recaptured tarpon. Anglers who are willing to assist in the study can obtain an easy-to-use tarpon DNA sampling kit by emailing TarponGenetics@MyFWC. com, or by calling 800-367-4461. Even Gov. Rick Scott got in on the tarpon shing action last week. Accompanied by Kathy Barco, the FWCs chairman, and Executive Director Nick Wiley, Gov. Scott went shing in the Florida Keys Aug. 11 with Capt. Rick Murphy to promote the states unique shing opportunities. The governor hooked one tarpon but it snapped his line and got away. Its one thing to catch a tarpon on a rod and reel, where landing the sh can take an hour or more. However, hardcore tarpon shermen say theres nothing like catching one on a y rod. It may be the longest y rod battle ever but in the late 1980s Crystal River resident Jim Farrior, who at the time worked for the former Game and Fresh Water Fish Commission, was y shing for tarpon one summer day about noon near Pine Island in Hernando County when he spotted a string of tarpon. He put his y in front of the group and a big tarpon inhaled it. Farrior stood on the bow of the 18-foot boat and held on to the 9-foot y rod as the tarpon took all the y line down to the backing. Farriors shing buddy at the controls cranked the boat, allowing Farrior to recover his line. He was such a beast. I didnt know if we would ever get close enough to get a good look at him, Farrior recalls more than 20 years later. But, stick with the tarpon they did. The tarpon pulled the boat from Pine Island up to the Chassahowitzka River, then back to where he hooked the sh, and then practically back to the Chassahowitzka, a distance of 5-6 miles. Finally, at midnight, Farrior could see the tiring 200-pound plus tarpon just a few feet in front of the boat and then his 16-pound tippet snapped. After a 12-hour bruising battle, the tarpon swam away in the darkness. I was beat, my hands hurt, and my gut hurt (where he had to bury his rod) but it was the most amazing thing. I was just as happy as if I had put him in the boat, Farrior said. But, its shing and why we keep coming back.

The Associated Press If you think the emerging scan dal at Miami is the worst college football has ever endured, you might not remember SMU. Even now, what happened at Southern Methodist University in the 1980s casts a shadow over the Miami case, the most startling to come from college footballs as sembly line of embarrassments in recent years. A former University of Mi ami booster and convicted Ponzi scheme artist says he provided Hurricanes players with cash, prostitutes, cars and other gifts from 2002 to 2010 and that several coaches knew and even partici pated as improper benets were handed out. The Yahoo Sports story about Nevin Shapiros self-described misdeeds has many fans asking whether Miami if the allega tions are found to be true could be in danger of having its football program shut down by the NCAA. The so-called death penalty has only been handed down once, to SMU. SMU players had been getting paid with funds provided by boost ers for years, and top school of cials not just coaches were involved. In the nine years I served on the (NCAA) committee on infrac tions, I never saw another one that was even close to what occurred in the SMU case, said University of Oklahoma law professor Da vid Swank, a former NCAA vice president. As serious as the Miami case looks, Swank said the violations Shapiro claims to have been a part of are not severe enough to war rant the Hurricanes being treated the same way as the Mustangs. In that case you had the in volvement of basically members of the board of trustees and the re gents, he said. And it was repeat violations, which made it a very serious case. SMU had been sanctioned mul tiple times in the 10 years leading up to receiving the death penalty for recruiting violations, includ ing being placed on three years probation in 1985. But the money kept owing because school of cials, including former Texas Gov. Bill Clements, the head of SMUs board, were afraid that players al ready on the payroll would expose the cheating if they were cut off. Miami football was hit with NCAA sanctions in 1995 after a nancial aid scandal involving at least 50 players. The Hurricanes received three-years probation, a one-season bowl ban and were stripped of 24 scholarships. But that involved an entirely different administration at Miami. At SMU, there was systematic cheating that had been going on for years. You had an infractions case, and then very shortly thereafter you had a second infractions case involving many of the same peo ple, Swank said. At Miami ... it looks like it fo cuses on one outlaw. Much like the Miami case, the SMU scandal came to a head at a time when NCAA investigations were rampant in college football. Some SMU supporters claimed the Mustangs were merely trying to keep up with Southwest Con ference rivals Texas, Texas A&M, Houston, Texas Tech, Baylor, TCU and Arkansas. Every school had been investi gated, said Bo Carter, the former longtime sports information direc tor of the Southwest Conference and Big 12. In the 80s, no one had very strong compliance programs. The conferences were trying to enforce things through self-policing. The result, Carter said, was a lawless mentality. ESPN analyst Craig James, who with fellow tailback Eric Dick erson formed the famed Pony Ex press backeld for SMU from 197982 but says he wasnt aware of the rampant rule-breaking, said back then boosters had far more access to players and recruits. They could help in some ways with recruiting ... it was not un common to see supporters around the university back in that era, he said. In the years that have passed since SMU football was shut down, rules have been tightened, and compliance departments at uni versities that have major athletic programs have grown substan tially. Yet in the last 18 months, Southern California, Ohio State, Auburn, Oregon, Michigan, North Carolina, Georgia Tech and LSU have all either been investigated or sanctioned by the NCAA. If the assertions are true, the alleged conduct at the University of Miami is an illustration of the need for serious and fundamental change in many critical aspects of college sports, NCAA President Mark Emmert said. Earlier this month, Emmert led a group of university presidents including Miamis Donna Shalala in drafting an outline for chang ing academic standards for stu dent-athletes and the parameters of athletic scholarships, as well for streamlining the NCAA rulebook. They also talked about imposing stiffer penalties on rule-breakers and coming up with a sentencing standard to provide more consis tent penalties. We absolutely must put this climate of rule-breaking behind us, Penn State President Graham Spanier said during the retreat. Specics on how remain unclear. Emmert said the death pen alty should still be an option, but I would only support the death penalty structure in very rare cir cumstances, so I dont know that people are as adamantly opposed to it as they are reserving it for the most egregious violations. Ivy League executive director Robin Harris served on the in fractions committee for 4 years before leaving in the late 1990s for an Indianapolis law rm that sometimes represents NCAA rulebreakers. Harris said she never saw a case she thought deserved the death penalty. We didnt ever have a situation where we thought it would be ap propriate, but we had some cases where it technically was in play, she said. I wouldnt rule it out, but hopefully it would be rare, and it should be rare. The NCAA hit USC with some of the toughest sanctions in recent memory last year, banning the Tro jans from postseason play for two seasons and taking away 30 schol arships over a three-year period. Even coach Lane Kifn ac knowledges it could take USC foot ball seven years to bounce back from the penalties. James said SMUs punishment was too harsh. I cant say that we didnt get what was coming our way, he said. But it absolutely put a cloud over our institution for 25 years. It lumped everyone into the same group of cheaters. Swank agreed with Emmert that the death penalty must be used sparingly. I dont think it is appropriate to totally destroy an athletic pro gram of an institution because of violations unless ... you go back to something similar to what you had in the SMU case, he said. I dont think the Miami case is one that really deserves that. BROOKLYN, Mich. (AP) Kyle Busch held off Jimmie Johnson for the time being, at least. Busch outlasted Johnson to win Sundays NASCAR Sprint Cup race at Michigan International Speedway, pulling away after a late caution for his fourth victory of the season. The win gave Busch a 10-point lead over Johnson at the top of the points standings, but there are still three more races before the Chase for the Sprint Cup starts. Johnson is the ve-time de fending champion on NASCARs top circuit, and Busch is merely the latest driver who seems poised to challenge him. Certainly its going to be a run down to the end, Busch said. The points are tight. With any bad day, it seems to hurt you so much, you really have to concentrate on bat tling back, getting yourself back up in the points. Denny Hamlin and Kevin Har vick pushed Johnson to the limit last year but fell short in the end. Now Busch has his sights on the championship, and although theres plenty of racing still to come, he aced Sundays test in what became a head-to-head dash to the nish with the man everyone is trying to wrest the title from. Busch passed Johnson with about a dozen laps remaining and was opening up a comfortable mar gin when his brother Kurt Busch scraped a wall, forcing a caution from laps 198-201. The yellow ag erased much of Kyle Buschs lead, but he was able to ght off a quick move from Johnson after the re start, then held on to win during the green-white-checkered nish. I said this about him a while ago: Once he gured out how to win races, hed win a lot, Johnson said. He certainly has done that. His big test is for a championship. Once he understands that and g ures that out, I think hell win a lot of those too. It was Buschs rst Cup win at Michigan.

WASHINGTON (AP) Laidoff workers and aging baby boomers are ooding Social Securitys disability program with benet claims, push ing the nancially strapped system toward the brink of insolvency. Applications are up near ly 50 percent over a decade ago as people with disabili ties lose their jobs and cant nd new ones in an economy that has shed nearly 7 mil lion jobs. The stampede for ben ets is adding to a grow ing backlog of applicants many wait two years or more before their cases are resolved and worsening the nancial problems of a program thats been run ning in the red for years. New congressional esti mates say the trust fund that supports Social Security dis ability will run out of money by 2017, leaving the program unable to pay full benets, unless Congress acts. About two decades later, Social Securitys much larger re tirement fund is projected to run dry, too, leaving it unable to pay full benets as well. Much of the focus in Washington has been on xing the Social Securitys retirement system. Propos als range from raising the retirement age to meanstesting benets for wealthy retirees. But the disabil ity system is in much worse shape and its problems defy easy solutions. The trustees who over see Social Security are urg ing Congress to shore up the disability system by re allocating money from the retirement program, just as lawmakers did in 1994. If Congress does not act, the disability program will col lect only enough payroll tax es to pay about 85 percent of benets after the trust fund is exhausted in 2017. Even if Congress does act, the combined retire ment and disability trust funds are projected to run out of money in 2036, the trustees say. The new con gressional report estimates the combined fund would run out of money in 2038. At that point, the combined pro grams would collect enough in payroll taxes to pay about three-fourths of benets. Claims for disability ben ets typically increase in a bad economy because many disabled people get laid off and cant nd a new job. This year, about 3.3 million people are expected to apply for federal disability benets. Thats 700,000 more than in 2008 and 1 million more than a decade ago. Its primarily economic desperation, Social Secu rity Commissioner Michael Astrue said in an interview. People on the margins who get bad news in terms of a layoff and have no other place to go and they take a shot at disability, The disability program is also being hit by an ag ing population disabil ity rates rise as people get older as well as a system that encourages people to apply for more generous dis ability benets rather than waiting until they qualify for retirement. Retirees can get full So cial Security benets at age 66, a threshold gradually ris ing to 67. Early retirees can get reduced benets at 62. However, if you qualify for disability, you can get full benets, based on your work history, even before 62. Also, people who qualify for Social Security disability automatically get Medicare after two years, even if they are younger than 65, the age when other retirees qualify for the government-run health insurance program. Congress tried to rein in the disability program in the late 1970s by making it tougher to qualify. The num ber of people receiving bene ts declined for a few years, even during a recession in the early 1980s. Congress, however, reversed course and loosened the criteria, and the rolls were growing again by 1984. The disability program got into trouble rst because of liberalization of eligibility standards in the 1980s, said Charles Blahous, one of the public trustees who oversee Social Security. Then it got another shove into bigger trouble during the recent recession. Today, about 13.6 million people receive disability ben ets through Social Security or Supplemental Security Income. Social Security is for people with substantial work histories, and monthly disability payments average $927. Supplemental Security Income does not require a work history but it has strict limits on income and assets. Monthly SSI payments aver age $500. As policymakers work to improve the disability sys tem, they are faced with two major issues: Legitimate ap plicants often have to wait years to get benets while many others get payments they dont deserve. Last year, Social Security detected $1.4 billion in over payments to disability ben eciaries, mostly to people who got jobs and no longer qualied, according to a re cent report by the Govern ment Accountability Ofce, the investigative arm of Congress. The decit reduction package enacted this month would allow Congress to boost Social Securitys bud get by about $4 billion over the next decade to invest in programs that identify peo ple who no longer qualify for disability benets. The Con gressional Budget Ofce estimates that increased enforcement would save nearly $12 billion over the next decade. The application process can be a nightmare for legiti mate applicants. About twothirds of initial applications are rejected. Most of these people drop their claims, but for those willing go through an appeals process that can take two years or more, chances are good they even tually will get benets. Astrue has pledged to reduce processing times for applicants appeals, and he has had some success, even as the number of claims skyrockets. The number of people waiting for decisions has increased, but their wait times are going down. Its ludicrous to say that the backlog problem is get ting worse, Astrue said. The backlog problem has gotten dramatically better.

Washington County News | B3 Wednesday, August 24, 2011 When thinking of reptiles, the image that comes to the minds of most people can vary from a garter snake slithering through the grass to lizards of Jurassic proportions roaming the earth. The idea of bonding with such creatures might seem creepy, or even impossible, yet some people insist that their reptiles know them and enjoy being with them. Can reptiles feel or portray emotions? Generally, reptiles do demonstrate basic emotions. Dr. Sharman Hoppes, clinical assistant professor at the Texas A&M College of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences, said the main two are fear and aggression, but they also might demonstrate pleasure when stroked or when offered food. A snake that is feeling aggressive may warn you with a hiss, said Dr. Hoppes. This can occur when you are forcing your attention on the snake, and if you persist, they may strike out. Typically snakes hiss or coil when they are feeling hostile, but most pet snakes are not aggressive animals unless threatened. A reptile that is feeling fear might simply try to get away, but it can also exhibit actions similar to aggression. For this reason, it is a good idea to keep handling sessions with a new reptile to a minimum until it gets used to you. Otherwise, you might scare it into striking at you, a perceived threat. It is better to have a good session without upsetting the animal that lasts two minutes than a longer session trying to force a reptile to accept you. A more controversial emotion in reptiles is the concept of pleasure, or even love. Many feel that they have not developed this emotion, as it does not naturally benet them. However, most reptiles do seem to recognize people who frequently handle and feed them. I dont know if it is love, Hoppes said, but lizards and tortoises appear to like some people more than others. They also seem to show the most emotions, as many lizards do appear to show pleasure when being stroked. Another interesting fact is that while many reptiles lay their eggs and then leave their young to fend for themselves, some, such as prehensiletailed skinks, form family groups and protect their young. Female alligators also stay with their young and will guard them for up to 6 months, teaching them survival skills and vocalizing with them through a series of grunts. Whether this is because of a survival instinct or concern for their individual offspring is unknown. When it comes to interactions with humans, some reptiles do seem to enjoy their company. A tortoise that enjoys being petted might stick its neck out or close it eyes and become still and calm during the interaction. The same is true of lizards. Some reptiles do appear to enjoy human contact, Hoppes said, especially when food is offered. Many will respond to feeding times, coming to certain people they associate with food. And certainly most iguanas prefer certain people over others. Iguanas have individual personalities that can vary from tranquil and laid-back to aggressive and dominating. The latter can be very difcult to live with and care for. The more calm iguanas, however, tend to bond with their person but may only endure handling by that individual. It is the rare iguana who is social with strangers. Many reptile owners believe that their personal reptiles do recognize the good intentions they have towards them. Others deem that their coldblooded dependents only tolerate them when they have to and would prefer to be left alone. By careful observation and handling of your reptiles, you can determine which are more social and which may not be quite so impressed with having a human as a best friend.

Local Soil renovators can boost yields Special to Extra The use of soil renovators will greatly reduce soil erosion and enhance water retention on the land. This conservation practice will not only reduce compaction but also help conserve soil, enhance water quality, improve drainage and result in higher forage yields. Dr. Ron Harrell believes pasture renovation coupled with rotational grazing and applying organic soil amendments will help increase productivity and protability for his grass-based beef cattle operation and protect our natural resources and environment. The pasture renovator was purchased by Orange Hill Soil and Water Conservation District with funds provided under a cooperative cost share agreement with Three Rivers Research, Conservation and Development Council Inc. of Milton. It is available for rent from the Orange Hill Soil and Water Conservation District. Contact John Gilbert at 258-1336 for details.

FAITH Wednesday, August 24, 2011 B Page 4 Section www.bonifaynow.com | www.chipleypaper.com FULLERTON, Calif. (AP) In many ways, Yousuf Salama is a typical teenager: He lives for football, worries about acne and would rather dash off to see Captain America with friends than spend one more minute with his mother. Hes aware, however, that his actions in particular can have greater meaning. Yousuf is a Muslim, one of only two in an all-boys Catholic prep school in Southern California. He has been asked if hes a terrorist and routinely shrugs off jokes about bombs and jihad. Sometimes I feel like I take it upon myself to be a better example, he said. Yousuf is among thousands of children who navigate every day the subtle and complex challenges that come with growing up Muslim in a deeply traumatized postSept. 11 America. Some were still in diapers and others in grade school when hijackers crashed planes into the World Trade Center and the Pentagon a decade ago, but their childhoods have been deeply touched by the pain and anger of a nation struggling to come to terms with a day that, for them, represents the worst perversion of their faith. For some, like Yousuf in California, the bullying, the hard stares and endless defense of their identity has nurtured a deeper faith and a maturity and resilience that surprises even their parents. I tell them that when theyre out in the world, they represent the best of our community, they are our faith ambassadors, said Kari Ansari, who was pregnant with her youngest child on Sept. 11 and lives outside Washington, D.C with her family. They will have learned to have compassion for people who maybe dont even deserve that kind of compassion dealing with bigots and dealing with prejudice and thats a great life lesson. For Ansaris oldest daughter, Aneesa, that lesson colors her earliest memories. She started attending a private Muslim kindergarten in Denver just days before Sept. 11, and it shut down for two weeks after angry protesters gathered outside. It eventually reopened, but an armed security guard stayed on campus for almost a year. Today, the 15-year-old is deeply invested in her religious identity and exudes a quiet pride at being Muslim. She began wearing a head scarf in public without prompting in the fth grade and has never removed it despite being cursed at while waiting in line at Ikea, stared at and pressured at school, she said. Aneesa goes to the library during her lunch hour so she can observe the holy month of Ramadan (a month of no food or water from sunrise to sundown) and said she prefers to spend time with other Muslim teens to avoid teenage social pressures. Her mother worried that her young daughter would be pitied or discriminated against for wearing the hijab, but for Aneesa, wearing the head covering was a rebuke to those who dwelled on her differences and minimized her faith. Even at 11, she said, she was adamant that it was her choice and her identity. I have enough strength, I guess, to not be afraid of who I am, Aneesa said. Its this pressure to change, people kind of hint that you dont have to wear a scarf at school, they ask if your parents make you. Combatting that makes you a stronger person. When the family moved from Denver to Chicago, her younger brother Sajid suddenly found himself the only Muslim boy in his grade in a tiny school district. For three years, from the fourth to the sixth grade, he was relentlessly bullied by dozens of students who ganged up on him, called him a terrorist and ridiculed him for his faith. In a sixth-grade art class, a group of boys passed him a note showing a drawing of the twin towers, with the words Look familiar? written below. On another occasion, he was walking his sister home in the snow when other students ambushed them with icy snowballs. One hit his face, leaving a bloody gash on his cheek. Sajids grades plummeted. and attempts to get adults to help led to more abuse, so he stopped telling his parents about what was going on. I just kind of felt like, Why was I born at a time when people didnt understand? I didnt have any problem with being Muslim or being born that way, said Sajid, now 13. Sometimes, I felt it was unfair that I was born at a time when all this was happening, he said. Its hard to explain that youre not the stereotype thats put out. The Ansaris eventually moved to northern Virginia and put their children in a bigger and more diverse school district. Today, Sajid is open with classmates about his faith, explaining that he cant eat pepperoni because Muslims dont eat pork and talking with friends about the terrorist characters that represent the enemy on war-themed video games. When you are a person of faith, you look at your life circumstances and every situation that comes up is a trial or challenge to you in your faith, said Ansari, who works as a freelance marketing consultant. We believe its Gods way of saying, What are you going to do about this? Are you going to succumb to it or rise above it and show what the true story is? In Southern Californias Orange County, Yousuf Salama, his 18-year-old sister Sarah and his 21year-old brother Omar have spent years navigating the same types of challenges at their private, Catholic prep schools. Their parents sent them there because of the top-notch education and same-sex environment. One of Yousufs friends asked if he was a terrorist after watching a TV program on Islamic extremism. His older brother, unusually tall and lanky for his age, was called Twin Tower at a seventh-grade ag football camp and quietly endured an endless loop of jokes: Do you have a bomb in your backpack? When do you leave for jihad? These days, those memories barely raise an eyebrow in the familys upscale suburban home, where their parents juggle a home business, sports practices and part-time jobs as well nightly prayers at the mosque during Ramadan. On a recent night, the children, Omars new wife and their grandmother gathered to break the Ramadan fast with heaping plates of lamb and chicken kebobs, sliced grilled eggplant, humus and a thick chocolate cake for dessert. How have we been living for the past 10 years? asked Anita BondSalama, their mother. Theres no answer, theres no magic formula, she continued. My husband and I have just dealt with things very matter-of-factly: This is what happened. Theres good and theres bad in the world. And unfortunately theres bad people who represent our religion but our religion doesnt say that.

He was born April 2, 1946, in New London, Conn., and resided there until 1971, when he moved to Florida. Avery and his brother David purchased and operated Otter Creek Farm north of Ponce de Leon. His workdays began at 3:00 in the morning, seven days a week. Avery, a hardworking man, had been in the logging business for close to 50 years and found it an enjoyable occupation because it kept him in the woods, close to nature.

(AP) A piece of Civil War history important to both Virginia and West Virginia is going on the auction block a 19th century mansion on Charles Town land where abolitionist John Brown was hanged more than 150 years ago. Bidding on the Historic Perkins House will begin at $950,000 on Sept. 11, but the right offer could pre-empt the sale if its made by 5 p.m. that day, says real estate agent Gary Gemstone of Historic Homes Marketing Group. The bidding officially begins Sept. 5. Long & Foster Real Estate is teaming up with Historic Homes to find the right buyer for the 7,000-square-foot, fivebedroom Queen Anne Victorian, built in 1891. Although the house was erected some 30 years after Browns execution, the site is well known among history buffs. The property even hosts re-enactments of the hanging. The actual site of the execution is in the yard, marked by a white obelisk with a plaque. Browns story is one of the most famous of the Eastern Panhandles Civil War stories. The fiery abolitionist staged a raid on a federal arsenal at Harpers Ferry in 1859, planning to seize thousands of weapons, arm a gathering guerrilla force and start the revolution that would end slavery. But the first casualty was a free black man, a baggage handler who bled to death on the street while Browns raiders grabbed hostages and holed up at a fire engine house. Within 48 hours, the rebellion was dead, along with at least four civilians, 10 raiders and a U.S. Marine who helped retake the building. More than 150 years later, his legacy remains conflicted. To many, Brown remains a hero. Others see him as a terrorist. At his trial for treason, murder and inciting a rebellion, the Connecticut native refused to apologize and declared the fight for freedom sanctioned by God and the Bible. He was swiftly convicted and executed on Dec. 2, 1859. Many scholars believe Brown and his raid became flash points, hastening the war. He became an enduring symbol to both sides during the long, bloody conflict to the North, a heroic martyr for equality, and to the South, a lunatic killer attacking what was a perfectly legal way of life. The property where he died will likely appeal to someone genuinely interested in truly unique historic properties, Gestson says. Its on the National Register of Historic Places and is essentially in the same state as it was in 1891 with the addition of modern amenities including a swimming pool and gourmet kitchen. Its about as deluxe a historic mansion as you can create, Gestson says. Its got custom woodworking, brickwork that is to die for. A website with photos of the red-brick, turreted house says its valued at $2.2 million and will be sold as-is. It will be open for viewing Sept. 10-11 from noon to 5 p.m. The property also features a two-story barn. Its also within commuting distance of Washington, D.C., and just down the road from the Hollywood Casino at Charles Town Races. The owners of the house are relocating, Gestson says, and after many years living there, they would like to know that the person whos buying it will be a good steward.

The actual execution site is outside, marked by a white obelisk with a plaque. Civil War-era hanging site now up for sale SAN FRANCISCO (AP) Federal land managers are rejecting a Goldman Sachs-owned companys applications to develop solar projects on public lands in the sun-drenched Nevada desert; years after the subsidiary led more claims to build glimmering solar farms than anyone else. For years Goldmans Cogentrix Solar Services, LLC held exclusive rights to develop solar plants on nearly as much federal land in Nevada as all other companies combined even though the rm had neither written plans nor inked agreements with utilities to buy the power they proposed to make. An Associated Press investigation last year found that the U.S. Bureau of Land Managements rst-come, rst-served leasing system allowed companies, regardless of solar industry experience, to squat on land without any real plans to develop it. Under that system, the rst company to le a claim on a site then held exclusive access to it until the application was rejected or withdrawn. Cogentrix, which mostly operates coal-andgas-red power plants in the eastern U.S., had no solar devel-opment experience prior to ling its applications and never produced plans for the vast swaths of land on which it had led claims. This week, the BLMs renewable energy projects manager for southern Nevada, Gregory Helseth, said he was in the process of rejecting Cogentrixs applications. This would re-open the lands to other developers that had until this point been blocked from accessing the sites because of Cogentrix. We have just about wrapped up rejecting the last of the Cogentrix applications, said Helseth. (The company) never showed a desire to move forward on their solar applications. They didnt turn in the required paperwork, or show an interest. BLMs staff was inundated with hundreds of applications for solar claims, leading to years of delays as the agency kept its focus on oil and gas leases. Now, even after years of planning and environmental review, not one megawatt of solar power is being sent to the grid from the millions of acres of publicly owned desert in the Southwest. While many companies led claims on public lands that never became real projects, Cogentrix was the most prolic. At one time the company had locked up nearly half the land for which applications had been led in Nevada, despite a dearth of plans or utility agreements. To date, not one of the companys proposed projects has been approved by BLM. Michael DuVally, a Goldman Sachs spokesman, declined to comment on the rejected applications. He said Cogentrix had turned its attention to another solar project on private land in Colorado. Cogentrix is in the process of developing a project in Colorado that, once its done, will be the largest high concentration solar photovoltaic generation project in the world, he said. That 30megawatt plant received a $90.6 million loan guarantee from the U.S. Department of Energy. BLMs Helseth said, before rejecting the applications, he tried repeatedly to get the company to le plans for its sites in Nevada or withdraw its applications so other developers could begin planning. These kinds of delays come at a time when the nation is trying to quickly diversify its energy supply, in part to meet the demand of a growing renewable energy market in California, which passed the nations strictest climate change regulations. Interior Secretary Ken Salazar has begun reforming the BLMs leasing system, and has approved 12 large scale solar power plants on public lands. In December, the rst utility-scale solar power plant developed by Tempe, Ariz.-based First Solar is expected to begin sending energy into the grid from southern Nevada. It will provide power for about 9,000 homes. (W)e are nding opportunities to ne tune our existing program in ways that discourage speculation and project proposals in areas that are not well suited to solar energy development, said David Quick, a spokesman for BLM in Washington DC. And to concentrate our efforts on those projects that appear most likely to be built. Quick said the BLM in January sent out a new directive to its eld ofces meant to weed out land speculators, especially applications that could hinder other applicants with serious interests in the potential development of solar energy resources on the public lands. The agency has also changed its approach to renewable energy projects: the government is now conducting environmental studies to determine which lands are suitable before offering them for lease. Under the old system, companies chose where they wanted to build before the government was required to determine whether the site was suitable. This led to many of the problems and delays that have dogged renewable energy expansion on public lands. Solar industry experts said BLMs rejection of Cogentrixs Nevada applications is a sign the government is making progress. You have got to get rid of the speculative applications and differentiate between the serious and not-soserious projects, said V. John White, executive director the Sacramento, Calif.-based Center for Energy Efciency and Renewable Technologies, a clean-energy advocacy group. This is absolutely a step forward it saves money and allows government resources to be spent on processing serious applications that will result in projects getting built, he said.
