Palatka: Reviewing red-light camera photos keeps things in-house
BY ASIA AIKINS
Palatka Daily News
“I oppose red light cameras
because they violate citizens’ due
process of law,” incoming Palatka
City Commissioner Rufus Borom
said in a question-and-answer session with the Daily News before the
November election. “Infractions shift
the burden from law enforcement to
the vehicle owner and there is no certifiable witness to the alleged viola-
Suspect flees

building
tion. The defendant loses the right to
cross-examine the accuser.”
All three of the incoming Palatka
City Commission members have
stated that they oppose the red light
cameras as a way to enforce traffic
laws, and a district court of appeals
in South Florida agrees.
In an Oct. 15 ruling, the Fourth
District Court of Appeals in South
Florida said about Hollywood, “the
city is not authorized to delegate
police power by entering into a con-
tract that allows a private vendor to
screen data and decide whether a
violation has occurred before sending
that data to a traffic infraction
enforcement officer to use as the
basis for authorizing a citation.”
The court also stated that dismissal of a citation is an appropriate remedy when a private third party issues
the citation. The private third party
named in the ruling was American
Traffic Solutions, the same vendor
that provided Palatka’s red light
cameras and is
contracted through
2017 to handle
technical support
for reviewing the
recorded images of
red light violations.

Law officers on Sunday
arrested a man whom they
said ran from officers, climbed
onto a roof and tried to discard
drug paraphernalia.
Chad Allen Dew, 27, was
booked into the Putnam
County Jail at about 4:50 p.m.
Sunday after being charged
with possession of a weapon,
drug equipment possession, evid e n c e
destroying
and resisting

those charges
– the weapon
and evidence
destroying charges are felony
offenses – originated from a
routine action.
“There was a traffic stop,”
Walsh said. “The traffic stop
was conducted because he
(and the driver) was not wearing a seatbelt.”
When Dew, who is a convicted felon, was finally
arrested, Walsh said, he was
found to be in possession of six
22-calibre rifle rounds in his
shirt pocket. He had tried earlier to get rid of a plastic bag
that contained a metal spoon
and two syringe needles,
authorities said.
During the traffic stop, the
driver of the vehicle had been
asked by Officer Brad Forsyth
to get out of the car, Walsh
said.
He said the driver, who was
ment is taking steps to avoid a similar challenge in Palatka’s local district court of appeals.
“That court has no jurisdiction in
this part of Florida, but we suspect
that our district court would rule
the same way if it heard a challenge,” he said. “So we are asking
for all of the pictures and videos to
be sent to us.”

SAN MATEO – Students following
the footprints of William Bartram
were led to Putnam County over the
weekend to exploring the county, as
Bartram did, along the St. Johns
River.
Thomas Hallock and about 15 students from the University of South
Florida – St. Petersburg arrived in
Putnam County Friday evening,
excited to begin an exploration of the
Bartram Trail in Putnam.
“I have never been to Palatka,”
said Kate Godfrey, a graduate student who is originally from
Jacksonville. “I hope to explore my
home state a little more in-depth
with this trip.”
Putnam’s local Bartram Trail
experts were on hand to greet the
group at Georgia Boys Fish Camp
Friday. County Commissioner Nancy
Harris and her husband, Lloyd, joined
Bartram Trail in Putnam County
committee members Sam Carr and
Dean Campbell, as they awaited the
students’ arrival.

according to a statement issued by the NWS. The freeze may inflict harm on outdoor plants, pets and

Just under half of all Florida counties saw increases in the 10 to 15 percent range.
The analysis looked at the average

The costs don’t include subsidies.
Individuals making less than roughly $46,000 a year and a four-person

Successful festival could become tradition

CRESCENT CITY – The
Pre-Thanksgiving Community
Festival scored a hit with
adults and children Saturday
at the Victory Worship Center,
1222 Huntington Road.
Everything from bouncy
inflatable sports challenges, to
a rock-climbing wall, to a

amusements grabbed children’s attention.

“I started out making popcorn, but they bamboozled me

A drug investigation led
county investigators to determine that two people were
conspiring to smuggle narcotics into the Putnam County
Jail.
Alyssa Kay Long, 25, was
arrested on Sunday. Samuel
Layton Fox Jr., 24, was also
arrested, but he was already a
resident at the jail, having
been arrested in September.
Both were charged with the
introduction of contraband
into a correctional facility.
The arrests were a result of
an investigation conducted by
the Putnam County Sheriff’s
Office Drug and Vice Unit,
according to a statement from
the sheriff’s office.
The investigation revealed
that Fox was trying to have
Long mail drugs to him inside
the jail, authorities said.
After coming to that conclusion, Drug and Vice Unit
detectives notified the
Department of Corrections of
the investigation.
“Corrections deputies intercepted a package mailed to
Fox from Long,” Sheriff’s
Office Major Johnny
Greenwood said in a state-
ment. “It was determined that
narcotics (were) concealed
within the package.”
According to the sheriff’s
office, Fox was arrested shortly after the package was discovered.
He was already in jail after
having previously been
charged with eight counts of
uttering a forged instrument,
five counts of theft and one
count of failure to appear in
court, the sheriff’s office
reported.
Authorities said that a warrant for contraband introduction was also issued for Long.
Palatka Police Department
officers, while investigating
Long on an unrelated matter,
arrested her after the sheriff’s
office made them aware of the
contraband investigation.
While the sheriff’s office
charged her for introducing
contraband, authorities said,
the police department charged
her with resisting an officer
and drug equipment possession.
Long was released from jail
Monday morning on a bond of
$6,008, but Fox remains in jail
without bond, authorities
said.

High court
to referee
water wars
I
t is encouraging that the U.S. Supreme
Court has indicated it will hear Florida’s
lawsuit against Georgia concerning
water diversions from Apalachicola Bay.
We hope the court does take the case and
fashions a reasonable solution that will prevent Atlanta’s burgeoning population from
ruining the Apalachicola-Chattahoochee-Flint
river system.
The river network ultimately flows into
Apalachicola Bay, whose once renowned oyster industry has virtually collapsed. The bay’s
rich blend of saltwater and freshwater had
produced 90 percent of Florida’s oysters and
10 percent of the nation’s. But inadequate
freshwater flow and increasing salinity levels
have reduced oyster meat harvests from
about 3 million pounds to 1 million pounds
since 2012.
Last year federal authorities designated the
oyster fishery a resource disaster area. Some
funding was provided to reshell parts of the
bay, providing habitat for larval oysters to
anchor and develop.
But such stop-gap measures are unlikely to
do much if the bay lacks adequate freshwater
flow.
There may be other factors, including
drought, in the decline of Apalachicola Bay’s
fisheries. But there should be little doubt that
Georgia’s water diversions are a major threat.
University of Florida researchers found the
oyster population crash was likely “the result
of diminished numbers of juvenile oysters
reaching maturity, due to insufficient reproduction by adult oysters, unusually high mortality of juvenile oysters, or a combination of
both factors.”
They found no evidence of oil or other contaminants — nor of overfishing, which
Georgia officials try to blame for the oyster
collapse.
In fact, Georgia has had little regard for
how its growth decisions and water demands
affect those downstream. It has shown little
inclination to reduce its reliance on the river
system.
That is why Gov. Rick Scott and Attorney
General Pam Bondi filed suit last year. As
Florida’s lawsuit states, Georgia’s daily diversion of 360 million gallons from the river system will grow to 705 million gallons per day
by 2035, given Atlanta’s expected growth.
Nobody expects to halt Atlanta’s growth,
but Georgia has to find a way to reduce its
already harmful diversions from the
Apalachicola-Chattahoochee-Flint River
Basin.
The development of alternative water
sources and more rigorous water conservation are essential. Georgia, to its credit, has
reduced per-capita water consumption in
recent years. But it still could do much more.
A few years ago when a drought caused
serious water shortages, the former governor
eased water restrictions after the landscaping industry complained.
In 2009, a federal judge ruled in Florida’s
favor, finding that the Buford Dam project on
the river system that created Lake Lanier,
where Atlanta gets most of its water, was not
designed to be used for public water supply,
but for flood control, navigation and hydropower.
Yet the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, over
time, reallocated lake water intended for conservation to support water supply.
Alas, the judge’s sensible ruling — which
would have frozen Atlanta’s water withdrawals for three years and allowed time for congressional resolution — eventually was overruled.
We hope the Supreme Court justices will
acknowledge that the welfare of people, commerce and resources do not diminish the farther they are downstream.

Latest Ebola casualty endured treatment delays
By Josh Funk and
Nelson Lampe
Associated Press
OMAHA, Neb. — A surgeon
who contracted Ebola in his
native Sierra Leone did not
receive aggressive treatment
until nearly two weeks after
he first started showing symptoms — a delay that doctors
said probably made it impossible for anyone to save his
life.
Dr. Martin Salia was in the
13th day of his illness when he
reached Omaha on Saturday.
He had waited three days to
be formally diagnosed after an
initial test for Ebola came
back negative. He then waited
five more days to be flown to
the United States.
By the time the 44-year-old
Maryland man got to the
University of Nebraska
Medical Center in Omaha, the
deadly virus had done too
much damage, shutting down
Salia’s kidneys and making
breathing difficult, doctors
said. He died Monday.

“(Forsyth) said (Dew) may

disease on Nov. 10 but did not
arrive at an Omaha hospital
until Saturday.
Two other Ebola patients
treated in Omaha this fall
arrived at the hospital roughly a week earlier in their illnesses, before nausea, vomiting and more serious symptoms set in. Both of those men
recovered.
“In the very advanced stages, even the modern techniques we have at our disposal
are not enough to help these
patients once they reach a
critical threshold,” said Dr.
Jeffrey Gold, chancellor of the
medical center.
The virus has already killed
more than 5,000 people in
West Africa.
Salia, who chose to work in
his homeland despite more
lucrative opportunities elsewhere, was first tested for
Ebola on Nov. 7, but the test
was negative, and he was discharged from a treatment center in Sierre Leone.
It’s not unusual to see false
negative tests for Ebola in the
early stages because the
amount of the virus in the
bloodstream is still low, said
Dr. Phil Smith, the infectiousdisease expert who leads the
Nebraska Medical Center’s
biocontainment unit.
The U.S. government warns
doctors to be wary of possible
false negative tests for Ebola.
Salia tested positive for the

side, he ran off. They let him
get out. When he got out, he
took off.”
Walsh said the traffic stop
occurred on the 100 block of
15th Street. After Dew ran
away from the police, he ran
to the Daily News building
and climbed onto its roof,
authorities said.
“When he was on the roof,
he threw items down a black
PVC pipe (connected to the
building),” Walsh said, referencing the spoon and syringes
that Dew originally had near
his waistband.
After additional help
arrived to assist with the pursuit, Dew was surrounded on
the building, Walsh said.
Officers had to climb onto
the building to arrest Dew,
who had not removed the gun
"We can’t say...
whether it was this
misdiagnosis or not
that led to his
death."
~ Theo Nicol
Information Minister Theo
Nicol said in a statement to
The Associated Press. The government planned to request a
full medical report from the
hospital where he was last
treated.
Salia, a permanent U.S. resident, was reportedly receiving blood from an Ebola survivor while in Sierra Leone, the
government statement said.
The treatment is believed to
provide antibodies to fight the
virus.
The government statement
questioned whether “the
strain of the 16-hour trip
could have had a negative
impact on his recovery.”
Doctors with an air-transport service assessed Salia in
Sierra Leone last week before
deciding he was stable enough
for the long flight to Nebraska.
In Omaha, Salia was placed
on kidney dialysis and a ventilator and was given several
medications, the hospital said.
He was given the experimental Ebola drug ZMapp and
received another p la sm a
rounds from his shirt pocket,
authorities said.
“He was transported to be
medically cleared, but apparently that went pretty quick,”
Walsh said. “He was then
transported to the jail.”
As of Monday at 5 p.m.,
Walsh was still in jail in lieu
of a $6,016 bond.

transfusion from an Ebola
survivor.
“I know that we gave him
every possible chance to survive. I think that his family
feels confident in that as well,”
Dr. Daniel Johnson said
Monday at a news conference.
Salia’s wife, Isatu Salia,
who lives in New Carrollton,
Maryland, said Monday that
the family believed he was
treated “in the best place possible.”
But by the time her husband arrived in Omaha, he
was already unresponsive,
doctors said.
In a Friday telephone interview, she said she had spoken
to her husband and prayed
with him. Although his voice
sounded weak and shaky, she
said he told her “I love you” in
a steady voice.
Salia graduated from the
Pan African Academy of
Christian Surgeons training
program in 2008. He was free
to practice anywhere he wanted, but he chose to stay in
Sierra Leone, where the need
for surgeons is immense.
“He honestly believed that’s
what God wanted him to do,”
said Bruce Steffes, executive

Casey Blanton, editor in
chief of the Journal of Florida
Studies, also joined the group
to learn more about Bartram’s
travels for an upcoming
Bartram publication.
Hallock, who began following the Bartram Trail when
he lived in Valdosta, teaches
early American and environmental literature at USF.
“When you come across people who are interested in
Bartram, you jump at it,” he
said.
The weekend trip contributed to the students’ studies in
his early American literature
class, but Hallock is also contributing to a book about
Bartram’s travels on the St.
Johns River. Campbell and
Bartram Trail in Putnam
County committee member
Dick Franz are also contributing to the book, Carr said.
On Saturday, Carr and
Campbell led the group on a
guided tour of Putnam’s
Bartram Trail on the St.
Johns River via pontoon boat.
The tour included stops at the
locations of recently added
Bartram trail markers at
Murphy Island, Stokes

month to hear challenges.
If the violation is neglected
for more than 60 days after it is
issued, Putnam County traffic
clerk Angelica Bridges said a
uniform traffic citation is
issued. Uniform traffic citations
carry a $261 fine, she said.
“We (Putnam County) handle the uniform traffic citation,” Bridges said. “They can
pay the $261 or request a hearing with our hearing officer.”
In both cases, if a hearing is
requested, the violator would
be obligated to pay court costs
and the amount of the citation
if they are found guilty. If the
case were dismissed, the per-
son issued with the citation
would not have to pay anything.
A federal lawsuit in the
Southern District of Florida
was filed against ATS earlier
this month on behalf of recipients of red light violations
issued in South Florida. The
lawsuit was filed after the red
light camera ruling in the district court of appeals.
According to the lawsuit,
the plaintiffs are seeking more
than $5 million for “unlawfully issuing and collecting fines
for traffic violations that were
void under Florida law.”

Later in the day, Carr said,
the students drove across the
Fort Gates Ferry and met
with Franz at Salt Springs.
“It will be neat to connect
the places we see with the literature,” Godfrey said on
Friday. “To walk where others
have walked.”
Carr said on Monday that
he thinks the students made
real connections with their
studies during the trip.
“They were really enjoyed
using the codes and pulling up
the websites at each stop,” he
said, adding that the new
Bartram Trail signs include
QR codes for smart phones.
“They heard dialog and we
read Travels (Bartram’s book
about his travels) at each stop
too.”
Carr said the students
laughed when they heard
John Bartram’s, William’s
father, dialog at one particular location.
“He said at one stop ‘it was
a warm and pleasant day,’ and
the students got a kick out of
that because it was cold and
windy on Saturday,” Carr
said.
Despite the cooler temperatures, Carr said the students
seemed to enjoy their trip on
the river.
Hallock said he is also looking forward to attending the
Bartram Conference in
Putnam next October.
“The trail really will bring a
lot of a lot of people to Putnam
County,” he said.

Getchell said the city of
Palatka’s standards for red
light violations are based on
state statute. If the camera
records a violation, based on
Palatka’s standards, the
recording would be sent to the
city for review.
The Mark Wandall Traffic
Safety Act authorizes local
governments to use red light
cameras, but includes the
opportunity for violation challenges to be heard by a local
hearing officer.
The city of Palatka hired
Allan Kaye, P.A., last year, to
serve as the hearing officer for
the city. According to city doc-
donations as the group worked
to meet a goal of $6,000.
Judging from the emotional

become a regular event.

For Tuesday, November 18, 2014
Be clear about your choices,
and protect your future. Focus
on your needs, and head down
the appropriate path. Business
advancements are on the horizon, so be ready to act quickly
when an opportunity appears.
Don’t let emotional issues slow
you down.
SCORPIO
(Oct. 24-Nov. 22)
Love is in the stars. This is a
great time to make updates to your
home or to move entirely. Further
your professional prospects by
sending out your resume.
SAGITTARIUS
(Nov. 23-Dec. 21)
You need a change. A low-cost
conservative investment or makeover will bring great benefits. The
differences may not be readily
visible, but your need for something new will be satisfied.
CAPRICORN
(Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
Maintain your point of view if
you feel you are right. Take immediate action regarding a legal or
financial decision. Dawdling will
interfere with your progress.
HOROSCOPE
AQUARIUS
(Jan. 20-Feb. 19)
Keep an eye on your competition. You are heading down the
fast track to success, and you
don’t want to make the mistake of
underestimating someone.
PISCES
(Feb. 20-March 20)
An important relationship is in
need of attention. Someone feels
left out and must be brought back
into the loop. Set up a discussion
to avoid a misunderstanding.
ARIES
(March 21-April 19)
Don’t be pressured into making
a snap decision. Leave yourself
enough time to weigh the pros and
cons before you make a commitment or sign any agreement.
TAURUS
(April 20-May 20)
You are in the mood to have
some laughs. Gather a diverse
group of your friends and see how
well they get along. An enjoyable
time is in store for you.
GEMINI
(May 21-June 20)
Be honest and don’t toy with
someone else’s feelings. To avoid
leading anyone astray, be open
about your plans, ethics and
beliefs, or you will end up feeling guilty.

Dear Harriette: How do I
introduce my new friend to my
family? We have only been seeing each other for about five
weeks now. We like each other
a lot. In fact, I plan to bring
her around my family during
Thanksgiving weekend. I haven’t
brought a woman home in a long
time, so I know it’s going to
mean something to my folks. I
am nervous because my family
is nosy, and they are going to
ask myriad questions. I am not
sure how to handle their pending
questions. Should I just spare
my family the confusion and
refer to her as my girlfriend?
— Somewhat Nervous, Jackson,
Mississippi
Dear Somewhat Nervous: If
you consider your friend to be
your girlfriend, call her that.
If you have not reached that
stage in your budding relationship, call it what it is. You can
tell them in advance that you
are bringing a friend with you to
dinner, a woman you have been
dating for a few weeks now. You
(June 21-July 22)
Hone your professional skills.
Do whatever it takes to stay in
the loop regarding advancements
in your field. Your qualifications
must be updated regularly if you
want to get ahead.
LEO
VIRGO
LIBRA
(Sept. 23-Oct. 23)
Keep a positive attitude and let
your imagination run free. Don’t
let a negative remark halt your
progress. The success of your
project will be enough proof that
you are right.
Dear Surprise, Surprise: I
am not a believer in doing for
someone something that you
know the person wouldn’t like.
I feel doubly sure about that
when you are speaking about a
surprise for your wife. Here’s
the thing: People often make
the mistake of superimposing
their views and desires on their
loved ones. That is not the way
to inspire happiness in those
people.
Instead, pay attention to your
loved one. What do you think
your wife would appreciate for
her special birthday? Think long
and hard. And guess what? You
can ask her for her input. Making
a celebration special does not
require surprise. It could be that
collaboration is the best idea.
Tell your wife that you want
to do something extra-special
for her upon reaching this milestone. Ask her to talk to you
about her heart’s desires. Figure
out if you can execute one of her
dream celebrations.
BRIDGE
(July 23-Aug. 22)
You will never feel fulfilled if
you keep trying to please everyone. Do what you love and don’t
let what others do or say stand in
your way.

Face the people and events
that are causing you stress. You
will add to your problems if you
put on a happy face and pretend
everything is all right.
can ask them to help make her
feel comfortable by not prying
too much.
Prep her as well. Let her know
that your family members are
inquisitive. She can decide in
advance what she wants to discuss and where she might draw
the line. It is most important for
the two of you to be clear on the
status of your relationship before
you get there. Agree on whether
you are friends, girlfriend-boyfriend or something else. As long
as you are united, you will be
able to make the atmosphere as
comfortable as possible.
Dear Harriette: My wife
does not like surprises, but I
would like to give her a surprise
party for her 45th birthday. I
know I am going against her
wishes, but I think it would be
fun to plan something without
her input. How can I get away
with planning her birthday without embarrassing my wife and
avoid getting hurt in the process?

Skid Simon’s classic book, “Why
You Lose at Bridge,” first appeared
in 1945. Now, 69 years later, Julian
Pottage has taken Simon’s char-
acters and written another book,
“Why You Still Lose at Bridge”
(Master Point Press).
Chapter 11, “Failing to Count,”
is a primary factor that separates
good players from bad. In this
example deal, South is in two
spades. West leads the heart ace,
then shifts to the diamond six.
How should South proceed?
In the auction, South’s decision
to compete with two spades on
a soft 4-3-3-3 hand with only a
queen and three jacks (no aces or
kings) was highly debatable.
In normal circumstances, South
would play dummy’s low diamond, hoping West had just led
from the king. But here the bidding makes that impossible. West
passed over his partner’s opening
bid, but has already produced the
heart ace; he cannot also have the
diamond king.
South should rise with dummy’s ace, conveniently dropping
East’s king. Then declarer can
draw trumps and lead clubs twice
through East (who must also have
the top honors in that suit) to
restrict his losers to three hearts
and two clubs.
Unexpectedly, in a worthwhile
book, the author fails to point out
that if West continues hearts at
trick two, East can win with his
queen and cash the king, on which
West can discard a club.
Then three rounds of clubs, the
last ruffed by West, defeat the
contract.
Surely East would have encouraged a heart continuation by signaling with his heart nine at trick
one.

Spanish colonists, who
established
the settlement of St.
Augustine in
1565. She was
a native Floridian, truly a
“Los Floridanos.” Frances
grew up on a large tract of
land on East End Road, which
was purchased by her grandfather, Mateo Simeon Solana
in the mid 1800s.

Jacksonville, Flagler
Memorial Presbyterian
Church in St. Augustine and
attended Fellowship
Presbyterian Church in
Tallahassee. She was an
active participant in Bible
study and women’s ministry of
the church and as a Sunday
school teacher. She made an
impact on many young lives
who remember her to this day.
Upon retirement, Frances and
her husband, Jack William
Barber, relocated to their
beach house at Matanzas Inlet
and fished the days away.
She was preceded in death
by her husband of 58 years,
Jack William Barber; her parents, Charles and Charlotte

Manson gets license to marry 26-year-old visitor
By Linda Deutsch and
Scott Smith
Associated Press
CORCORAN, Calif. — Mass
murderer Charles Manson
has gotten a license to marry a
26-year-old woman who visits
him in prison.
The Kings County marriage
license, viewed Monday by
The Associated Press, was
issued Nov. 7 for the 80-yearold Manson and Afton Elaine
Burton, who left her
Midwestern home nine years
ago and moved to Corcoran,
California — the site of the
prison — to be near Manson.
She maintains several websites advocating Manson’s
innocence.
The license does not specify
a wedding date and indicates
the couple has 90 days to get
married or they will have to
reapply.
Burton, who goes by the
name “Star,” told the AP that
she and Manson will be married next month.
“Y’all can know that it’s
true,” she said. “It’s going to
happen.”
“I love him,” she added. “I’m
with him. There’s all kinds of
things.”
Burton gave an interview a
year ago to Rolling Stone magazine in which she said she
and Manson planned to
marry. But Manson, who
became notorious in 1969 as
the leader of a roving “family”
of young killers, was less certain about tying the knot.
“That’s a bunch of garbage,”
Manson said in the December
2013 interview. “That’s trash
We’re playing that for public
consumption.”
Asked Monday about those
comments, Burton said, “None
Pet of the Day
LUCY LOU
of that’s true,” adding that
they’re waiting for the prison
to complete their paperwork.
California Department of
Corrections spokeswoman
Terry Thornton confirmed to
the AP that the license had
been transmitted to the prison.
Thornton said each
California prison designates
an employee to be a marriage
coordinator who processes
paperwork for an inmate’s
request to be wed. In most
cases, she said, the department of corrections approves
of such weddings as “a tool of
family reunification and social

He and his prospective spouse
also would be allowed to invite

However, as a life prisoner

entitled to family visits, a

Why marry Manson under

Burton said she was interested in working on his case

would allow her to get information not available to nonrelatives, she said without

“There’s certain things next

She said she believes

Islamic State group beheads U.S. aid worker Peter Kassig
By Diaa Hadid
Associated Press
BEIRUT — The Islamic State
group has beheaded Peter Kassig,
releasing a video Sunday showing a
masked militant standing over the
severed head of a man it said was the
former U.S. Army Ranger-turned-aid
worker, who was seized while delivering relief supplies in Syria last
year.
President Barack Obama confirmed Kassig’s slaying after a U.S.
review of the video, which also
showed the mass beheadings of a
dozen Syrian soldiers.
The 26-year-old Kassig, who
founded an aid group to help Syrians
caught in their country’s brutal civil
war, “was taken from us in an act of
pure evil by a terrorist group that
the world rightly associates with
inhumanity,” Obama said in a statement.
He denounced the extremist
group, which he said “revels in the
slaughter of innocents, including
Muslims, and is bent only on sowing
death and destruction.”
The slain hostage’s parents, Ed
and Paula Kassig, said they were
“heartbroken” by their son’s killing,
but “incredibly proud” of his humanitarian work. Kassig “lost his life as a
result of his love for the Syrian people and his desire to ease their suffering,” the parents said in a statement from Indianapolis.
With Kassig’s death, the Islamic
State group has killed five
Westerners it was holding. American
journalists James Foley and Steven
Sotloff were beheaded, as were
British aid workers David Haines
and Alan Henning.
Unlike previous videos of slain
Western hostages, the footage
released Sunday did not show the
decapitation of Kassig or the
moments leading up to his death.
“This is Peter Edward Kassig, a
U.S. citizen … who fought against
the Muslims in Iraq,” said the blackclad militant, who spoke with a
British accent that was distorted in
the video, apparently to disguise his
identity. Previous videos featured a
militant with a British accent that
the FBI says it has identified, though
it hasn’t named him publicly.
The footage released Sunday identifies the militants’ location as Dabiq,
a town in northern Syria that the
Islamic State group uses as the title
of its English-language propaganda
magazine and where they believe an
apocalyptic battle between Muslims
and their enemies will occur.
The high-definition video also
showed the beheadings of about a
dozen men identified as Syrian military officers and pilots, all dressed in
blue jumpsuits. The black-clad militant warns that U.S. soldiers will
meet a similar fate.
“We say to you, Obama: You claim
to have withdrawn from Iraq four
years ago,” the militant said. “Here
you are: You have not withdrawn.
Rather, you hid some of your forces
behind your proxies.” A U.S.-led
coalition is targeting the Islamic
State group in airstrikes, supporting
Western-backed Syrian rebels,
Kurdish fighters and the Iraqi military.
Kassig, who served in the U.S.
Army’s 75th Ranger Regiment, a
special operations unit, deployed to
Iraq in 2007. After being medically
discharged, he returned to the
Middle East in 2012 and formed a
relief group, Special Emergency
Response and Assistance, to aid
Syrian refugees.
A certified EMT, Kassig had delivered food and medical supplies and
provided trauma care to wounded
Syrians before being captured in
eastern Syria on Oct. 1, 2013.
Friends say he converted to Islam in
captivity and took the first name
Abdul-Rahman.
In a statement issued as he flew
back to Washington from the AsiaPacific region, Obama said Kassig
“was a humanitarian who worked to
save the lives of Syrians injured and
dispossessed” by war. The president
offered prayers and condolences to
Kassig’s family.
“We cannot begin to imagine their
anguish at this painful time,” he
said.
Scientists confident comet lander will wake up again
Real Life
brisbane, australia
Putin denies he fled summit pressure
By Frank Jordans
Associated Press
Shortly before its primary battery ran
out, the European Space Agency decided
to attempt to tilt the lander’s biggest
solar panel toward the sun — a last-ditch
maneuver that scientists believe may
have paid off.
“We are very confident at some stage it
will wake up again and we can achieve
contact,” Stephan Ulamec, the lander
manager, told The Associated Press.
That should happen next spring, when
Philae and the comet it is riding on —
called 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko —
get closer to the sun, warming up a secondary battery on board. A few days of
sunshine on the solar panels should be
enough to charge the battery sufficiently
to conduct science runs, said Ulamec.
Before they can say for certain if they’ll
be able to restore contact with Philae, scientists first need to find out where on the
4-kilometer (2.5-mile)-wide comet the
washing machine-sized lander is, he
added.
New pictures released Monday offer
very good clues about where it has come
to rest.
The high-resolution images taken from
Philae’s mother ship Rosetta show the
lander descending to the comet and again
after its first and second bounce. These
were caused by the lander’s failure to
deploy its downward thrusters and harpoons.
Russian President Vladimir Putin made an early exit on
Sunday from a two-day summit of world leaders where he was
roundly criticized over Russia’s escalating aggression in
Ukraine, but brushed off suggestions that he had felt pressured.
Putin was the first leader to fly out of Brisbane on Sunday
afternoon as his fellow leaders in the G-20 club of wealthy and
developing nations shared a lunch and before they released the
communique to cap off their annual summit.
He also departed Australia shortly before President Barack
Obama and European leaders opened their talks on Ukraine,
where Russia is backing separatist rebels in the east of the
country after annexing Ukraine’s Crimea Peninsula in March.
In July, A Malaysia Airlines flight was shot down, killing all
298 people on board, while flying over a rebel-held area of eastern Ukraine.
BERLIN — There is a strong chance
Europe’s comet lander will wake up from
hibernation as it nears the sun, raising
hopes for a second series of scientific
measurements from the surface next
year, scientists involved in the mission
said Monday.
The Philae lander, which became the
first spacecraft to touch down on a comet
Wednesday, has already sent reams of
data back to Earth that scientists are
eagerly examining. But there were fears
its mission would be cut short because it
came to rest in the shadow of a cliff.

Bird flu confirmed at Dutch, UK farms
The Dutch government on Sunday banned the transport of
poultry and eggs throughout the country after confirming an
outbreak of bird flu at a chicken farm.
The Ministry for Economic Affairs said the outbreak is deadly to poultry and can also be transmitted to humans. Spokesman
Jan van Diepen said the exact strain of bird flu has not yet been
established.
All 150,000 chickens at the farm in Hekendorp, 40 miles
south of Amsterdam, were being slaughtered. It was not clear
how the farm became infected.
As well as halting the movement of poultry, other birds and
eggs nationwide for 72 hours, the government is imposing other
restrictions, including banning the transport of byproducts such
as poultry manure and hay that have been used in poultry farms.

Frenchman thought among IS killers
A young Frenchman is believed to be among the killers on an
Islamic State propaganda video showing a beheaded American
aid worker and the deaths of more than a dozen Syrian soldiers,
France’s top security official said Monday.
Interior Minister Bernard Cazeneuve said there is a “strong
presumption” that Maxime Hauchard is among the group of
Islamic extremist fighters in the video released over the weekend. He urged young people in France to “open your eyes to the
terrible reality” of the militant group.
Cazeneuve said authorities were analyzing the video and have
been investigating Hauchard, who is around 22 years old and
from west of Paris. The convert to Islam gave an interview to
France’s BFM television in July, telling the network he had helped
in the capture of Mosul, the Iraqi city whose fall eventually
prompted the United States to resume military operations there.
“I call solemnly and seriously on all our citizens, and notably
our young people who are the primary target of the terrorist
propaganda, to open your eyes to the terrible reality of the
actions of Daesh,” Cazeneuve said, using an Arabic acronym for
the group.

VATICAN CITY — Pope
Francis is seeking to reassure
the church’s right-wing base
that he’s not a renegade bent
on changing church doctrine
on family issues — weeks
after a Vatican meeting of
bishops initially proposed a
radical welcome for gays and
divorced Catholics.
Francis on Monday opened
an interreligious conference
on the “complementarity” of
men and women in marriage
and sex. He said marriage
between a man and woman is
a “fundamental pillar” of society and that children have the
right to grow up with a mother
and father.
It was the second papal
speech emphasizing church
doctrine in as many days: On
Saturday, Francis pronounced
some of his strongest words
yet against abortion, euthanasia and in vitro fertilization,
sounding more like his predecessor, Emeritus Pope
Benedict XVI, than the
Argentine Jesuit who famously said “Who am I to judge?”
about gays.
Vatican officials concurred
that the interventions could
be read as a response to the
conservative backlash that
erupted after the recent meeting of the world’s bishops on
family issues. The meeting’s
organizers, who were handpicked by Francis, initially
proposed a revolutionary welcome toward gays and civilly
remarried Catholics, following
Francis’ exhortation that the
church must welcome all.
Gay rights groups and liberal Catholics cheered, even
though the bishops scrapped
the welcome in their final document.
Conservative Catholics,
already uncomfortable with
Francis’ lack of emphasis on
doctrine, reacted with outright alarm after the synod,
fearing that Francis eventually might lead the church into
uncharted territory that
would compromise church
teaching on homosexuality
and the indissolubility of marriage.

2. No. 1 Mississippi State is
taken down by No. 4 Alabama,
25-20, in Tuscaloosa, making way
for No. 2 Florida State to move back
to the top spot in the Associated
Press poll after having to come back
once again to knock off host Miami,
30-26.
1. The NASCAR Sprint Cup
season comes to a close with Kevin
Harvick outlasting the other racers
on the course at Homestead to not
only win the race, but the season
title as well for his first time.
Our topic of discussion: Harvick’s
moment at last.
All Kevin Harvick had to do on
Sunday at the Homestead-Miami
Speedway was just finish ahead of
the other three pursuers of the
Sprint Cup championship, Joey
Logano, Ryan Newman and Denny
Hamlin.
He decided he wanted to win the
race as well.
Coming from as low as 18th on the
grid at one point and at 12th place
with 15 laps to go, Harvick went for
four new tires for the final 20 laps on
the restart and the move paid off as
he picked off racers left and right.
Near the front, the race was forced
into another restart late and
Hamlin, who stayed on the course
without a change in tires, paid for it
as off that last restart, Harvick
passed him up as well as Newman
and cruised on in for the triumph.
Harvick became only the third different first-time Sprint Cup season
champion in the last 10 seasons
after Jimmie Johnson won the first
of his six titles in 2006 and Brad
Keselowski in 2012.
And the win ended what has been
a long pursuit to greatness for
Harvick. Starting with Richard
Childress Racing in 1999, Harvick
ran the Busch Series (now
Nationwide) with the No. 2 AC Delco
Chevrolet. He would win the Rookie
of the Year honor for the Busch
Series in 2000, but Childress himself
made the decision to keep him on
the Busch Series fulltime.
That all changed tragically on the
afternoon of Feb. 18, 2001, at the
Daytona 500 when Dale Earnhardt
was killed in a wreck on the final lap
of that race. Forced to find a quality
replacement for the late, great
Earnhardt, Childress chose Harvick
to take over Earnhardt’s ride, changing the car number from 3 to 29 in
the process. Three weeks later at the
Cracker Barrel Old Country Store
500 at Atlanta Motor Speedway,
Childress’ trust in Harvick paid off
as his rookie held off Jeff Gordon to
win his first race.

Dregs of NFC will have

Will Muschamp leaves the sidelines following the Gators’ overtime loss to South Carolina.
On the Offensive
Foley wants to hire coach with offensive track record
BY MARK LONG
Associated Press
F
GAINESVILLE
lorida’s next football coach will have a
“track record of success on the offensive
side of the ball.”
Athletic director Jeremy Foley said
Monday that Florida fans want that and
“we’re certainly going to try to provide for them.”
Foley didn’t rule out a defensive coach, but made
it pretty clear the Gators don’t plan on hiring another defensive coordinator without head-coaching
experience.
Florida failed miserably with former defensive
coordinators Ron Zook (2002-04) and Will
Muschamp (2011-14).
Foley fired coach Muschamp on Sunday, a day
after a 23-20 loss to South Carolina that was
Florida’s third straight at home and knocked the
Gators out of contention in the Southeastern
Conference’s Eastern Division.
“We would obviously like an individual that’s
been successful on the offensive side of the ball,”
Foley said. “I think obviously that’s what the Gator
Nation wants, and we see that, and that’s what
we’re certainly going to try to provide for them.”
Muschamp will coach the final two regular-season games, against Eastern Kentucky and Florida
State, but won’t stick around for a potential bowl
game. The Gators (5-4, 4-4) need to win one of the
two to become bowl eligible.
“Our guys will respond the right way and handle
it with class, like they always have in all situations,” said Muschamp, who seemed to handle the
decision as professionally as possible. “It’s important for us to get these seniors a win here in the
Swamp.”
Foley, Muschamp and outgoing school president
Bernie Machen spoke at the news conference. Foley
choked back tears while talking about how difficult
a decision it was to fire Muschamp, who cleaned up
a program rampant with arrests and did everything
right off the field.

Going south is exactly what the
Saints, Panthers, Falcons and
Buccaneers have done this season.
Yet one of them will be playing in
January.
As it should, the NFL places a premium for the playoffs on winning a
division. The problem is the team that
makes the postseason from the NFC
South will be more like the lucky loser.
Of course, those four clubs will
argue that they can replicate what the
2010 Seahawks did, winning the NFC
West at 7-9, then beating 11-5 New
Orleans, a wild-card team, in the first
round of the playoffs.
One of them certainly will get that
opportunity — in a pure bit of irony, it
could wind up being Seattle that gets
the wild card with a superior record
and then heads to the road for the
opening round of the Super Bowl tournament.
Regardless, there will be screams of
protest that a seven-win, perhaps even
a six-win team, gets to keep playing.
“Yeah, it’s a crazy situation,” said
Panthers safety Thomas DeCoud, who
knows all about the division from playing six seasons with Atlanta before
joining Carolina this year.
“The way the season is going I don’t
want to say that somebody up there is
a Panther fan, but somebody is giving
us every opportunity to stay in the
chase. But now we just got to start
capitalizing on those opportunities.”
If anyone has failed to do so thus
far, it’s Carolina, which started 2-0,
including a win over Detroit, and then
was 3-2-1, with the tie coming against
Cincinnati, before dropping five
straight. The Lions and Bengals have
been first-place teams.

GAINESVILLE — Angel
Rodriguez scored 24 points, none bigger than those that came on a falling-down, hand-in-the-face 3-pointer
with 16 seconds remaining, and
Miami overcame a 15-point deficit to
upset No. 8 Florida 69-67 on Monday
night.
The Hurricanes (2-0) scored 48
points in the second half as
Rodriguez took over. The former
Kansas State guard hit three consecutive 3-pointers that helped Miami
take the lead with 1:45 left. His free
throw tied it with 1:13 remaining.
But his fifth 3 of the game was the
dagger that ended Florida’s schoolrecord, 33-game winning streak at
home.
Kasey Hill had a hand in his face
and even knocked him to the floor,
but the off-balance shot went in.
Florida (1-1) had a final chance to
send it to overtime, but Michael
Frazier II missed a jumper at the
buzzer.
Eli Carter led the Gators with 21
points, including 16 in the second
half.
Carter hit a driving layup with a
minute to play that put Florida back
ahead 67-65, but Rodriguez
answered on the other end. Carter
had a chance to respond, but he was
called for a charge in the lane with 3
seconds to play.
Florida was down four players in
the game, including starting forward
Dorian Finney-Smith.

But Muschamp couldn’t get the results on
the field, and Foley said he likely would have
needed to win out to save his job following last
month’s 42-13 debacle to Missouri on homecoming.
Muschamp is 27-20 in three-plus seasons,
including 17-15 in SEC play.
His main issues were on the offensive side of
the ball, where he had three coordinators, three
line coaches, four receivers coaches and five
quarterbacks in four seasons. All of them failed

field goal blocked in the final 3:31
of regulation. Twice, the Gators
held the dagger high – poised to
cut the Gamecocks’ throat, keep
alive hopes in the SEC East,
ensure bowl eligibility and potentially get Muschamp to 2015 with
the orange and blue – and they

At least they get a bye this
week to lick their wounds and figure out some answers. Not that
many answers are needed in this
division.
To think the Falcons have figured things out would be misguided, too. Yes, they are 4-0 in the
division, but 0-6 against real

Yet they sit atop the NFC South

they’ve played an easy schedule
that now gets much tougher.
“No, that does not matter,” running back Steven Jackson said of

in the driver seat of our destiny and
that’s where we want to be.

“They got a deep and talented roster, so don’t
let that new guy tell you he ain’t got no good
players,” Muschamp said. “Tell you that right

Perhaps that’s true in other
divisions, where winning most
every week is critical. In the
Falcons’ sector, they’ve climbed
back into contention as much
because the Saints were losing at
home to San Francisco and
Cincinnati as for anything the
Falcons managed.

Due to the threat of tornadoes, both Monday sporting events involving Putnam County schools were
postponed.
Crescent City’s girls soccer match at home with
Bradford was postponed, and according to Raiders
coach Lucie Valdivia-Sanchez, no makeup date has
been brought up yet, but the match will have to be
made up because both teams are District 5-2A rivals
and this is their only match this season.
Interlachen’s opening boys basketball game
against St. Augustine St. Joseph Academy got postponed, but IHS athletic director Ron Whitehurst
said no makeup date has been planned yet.

Record deal for Marlins’ Stanton
MIAMI — The Marlins are no longer pinching pennies, and Giancarlo Stanton won’t be, either.
Stanton agreed to terms with the team Monday on
a $325 million, 13-year contract, Miami owner Jeffrey
Loria said. It’s the most lucrative deal for an American
athlete and averages $25 million per season, or
$154,321 per game.
The deal includes a no-trade clause, and Stanton
can opt out after six years, Loria said. A news conference was planned Wednesday.
Any kind of multiyear deal is a big departure for the
Marlins and Loria, whose frugal ways in the past
alienated fans, angered the players’ union and made
the franchise the butt of jokes.
Given such thriftiness, the Marlins’ generosity
toward Stanton becomes even more stunning. His
contract tops the $292 million, 10-year deal Miguel
Cabrera agreed to with the Detroit Tigers in March.
Alex Rodriguez signed the largest previous deal, a
$275 million, 10-year contract with the Yankees
before the 2008 season.
Stanton, who turned 25 on Nov. 8, is perhaps the
game’s most feared slugger. He has 154 career homers
despite playing home games in spacious Marlins
Park.
COLLEGE FOOTBALL
Winston hearing delayed again
TALLAHASSEE — A person familiar with the
decision says Jameis Winston’s Florida State student code of conduct hearing has been moved a second time to Dec. 2.
The person spoke to The Associated Press Monday
on condition of anonymity because the university has
not released any details about the hearing.
AP has reported that Florida State originally
scheduled the hearing the week of Nov. 17, then
changed it after Winston family adviser David
Cornwell requested a delay.
The Heisman-winning quarterback is facing a
hearing to determine whether he violated four sections of the code of conduct — two for sexual misconduct and two for endangerment. A former female
student said he assaulted her in December 2012.
NFL
Jaguars activate Lewis
JACKSONVILLE — The Jacksonville Jaguars
have activated tight end Marcedes Lewis from the
injured reserve/designated to return list.
To make room for Lewis on the 53-man roster,
the team placed rookie receiver Allen Robinson on
injured reserve with a broken right foot.
The Jaguars also waived rookie tight end Mike
Flacco from the practice squad and waived rookie
receiver Nathan Slaughter from injured reserve.

Fisher was going to get it done.
Instead, Fisher is working on a
second straight national championship with Muschamp’s team in
the way at Doak on Nov. 29.
Like Ron Zook when he was
shown the door 10 years ago,
Muschamp won’t work any bowl
game. But he’ll work until the
last second in Tallahassee.
“You play for the University of
Florida,” he said Saturday. “You
keep playing hard.”
Down to the last X and O.
Though he remained a fixture on what would be
the lower circuit, winning the Busch/Nationwide
series in 2001 and ‘06, Harvick began to carve out his
own niche on the Winston Cup, then Nextel Cup and
now Sprint Cup circuit. With 229 Top 10 finishes
and 28 championships to his credit, Harvick has
remained a fixture near the top of the Sprint Cup
standings, but his best overall finish in a season was
third three times in 2010, 2011 and 2013. The most
disappointing of the three? Easily 2010 when he was
first in the standings until the new format of cutting
the field down to just 10 racers also changed the
points and though he had five Top 5 finishes and
nine Top 10s, it wasn’t enough as Johnson won his
fifth straight title.
After being so close, it was Harvick’s time to prevail. He had made the change this season to race for
fellow driver Tony Stewart and his Stewart-Haas
Racing team. And the switch did wonders – five
wins, tying his best of 2006, eight pole positions,
compared to six he had total in his first 13 seasons,
14 Top 10s and 20 Top 10s. His 2,137 laps led
throughout the season is the second-most in Sprint
Cup history only behind the 2,238 Johnson accumulated in his fourth straight championship season in
2009.
However, it’s been a long struggle to make it to the
top for Harvick, who celebrates his 39th birthday on
Dec. 8 and just three months younger than Johnson.
The last driver older than Harvick to win a season
title was his boss, Stewart, at 41 years old. As a matter of fact, only three other champions in the last 20
years were older than Harvick when they captured
victory – Dale Jarrett was almost 43 when he won
his lone title in 1999, Terry Labonte won in 1996
after he turned 40 the week before and Earnhardt
was 43 when he won his last championship.
It remains to be seen what happens from this
point for Harvick.
But after that 13-year climb to the top, the first
championship was surely well worth it.

Foley has some critical criteria for
Muschamp’s replacement.
“First and foremost is high integrity and
character,” Foley said. “Our mission statement
says ‘championship experience with integrity.’
That is paramount us as we move forward. …
What does that mean? This is not a place for
everybody. Not everybody fits in here. As we go
through the process, we want to make sure
they do fit in here.”
Don’t expect Florida to hire anyone with
unwanted baggage, so Louisville’s Bobby
Petrino, Arizona’s Rich Rodriguez, West
Virginia’s Dana Holgorsen and former Oregon
coach Chip Kelly (now with the NFL’s
Philadelphia Eagles) are probably out. Foley
hopes to have a new coach in place before
Christmas.
LSU. Tevin Westbrook’s drop
in the end zone. But it wasn’t just
that.
There was the stink bomb of a
homecoming against Missouri.
The wipeout in Tuscaloosa.
Pretty much all of 2013, lowlighted by Vanderbilt and Georgia
Southern.
Florida has lost 13 of 22 games
since it beat – no, throttled –
Florida State 37-26 in the 2012
regular-season finale at
Tallahassee. Back then,
Muschamp and the Gators were
flying high at 11-1 and FSU fans
were left wondering if Jimbo
