Bay County Sheriff’s deputies had sought Aaron Lepak, 40, in connection with an aggravated battery incident that left his wife paralyzed before offi cers cornered the armed man Tuesday at the Budget Inn, 3910 U.S. 98. Officials initially announced Lepak had died on the scene after negotiations became unruly, he waved his firearm in McKei then’s direction and was subsequently shot in the room, according to BCSO reports.

Montin, 52, of Panama City Beach, was released from a Nebraska hos pital last year, 20 years after jurors acquitted him of attempted mur der and found him not responsible by reason of insanity of other charges. He was com mitted as a result of the verdict. His lawsuit alleges the hospital and its staff members relied on incorrect information to hold him long after his illness had been successfully treated. In that time, he said he spent a year in soli tary confinement and missed his moth er’s death and funeral. His suit, filed last month in the district of Nebraska federal court, seeks millions of dollars in damages. Montin grew up in St. Andrews, where his family ran a sporting goods store. He joined the Army, then worked as a commercial fisherman for several years until he hurt himself. He had a workman’s compensation claim that was resolved and included enough back pay to either go back to school or start a small business. But Montin wasn’t sure which path he would take, so he set out on a vision quest of sorts. He headed west on a camping trip to do some “soul searching.” “I call it the camping trip to hell,” he said. In the Army he’d been stationed at Fort Lewis in Washington for a time, and he returned to explore the area without JOHN M ON T IN SEE L A W SUIT | A3 CONGRESSIONAL C ANDID ATE G WEN GR AHAM VISITS P ANAMA CITY HEATHER LEIPHART | The News Herald U.S. Sen.

Although the election is expected to be tight and political action committees around country are expected to cough up big bucks on ads, the race will be won with votes, said former Florida Gov.

Page A2 | The News Herald | Thursday, August 7, 2014 The Associated Press BAGHDAD Car bombs kill 51 in Shiite neighborhoods A string of car bombs tore through busy shopping streets in several Baghdad neighborhoods Wednesday night killing 51 people as the army announced one of its airstrikes had killed 60 militants in the northern city of Mosul. Baghdad police said the first attack was a pair of car bombs that exploded in the densely populated Shiite neighborhood of Sadr City, killing 31 people, followed by another bomb in the nearby area of Ur that claimed another 11 lives. Nine more people were killed in the southeast shortly afterward by two more car bombs. Baghdad has been on edge since Sunni militants led by the radical Islamic State group conquered large swaths of the country’s north, including the second largest city of Mosul. While the fighters have stopped short of advancing on the capital there has been a steady campaign of car bombs in the city. ROME Furor after Concordia captain gives seminar A Rome university professor is facing a disciplinary hearing after inviting the captain of the shipwrecked Costa Concordia cruise liner to lecture students on emergency procedures. The dean of Rome’s Sapienza University, Luigi Frati, voiced anger Wednesday at the professor’s decision to invite Capt. Francesco Schettino to give a seminar, calling it an “inappropriate and unworthy choice.” Frati said he was turning the matter over to an ethics committee. The university dismissed the “pathetic excuses” offered by the professor, Vincenzo Mastronardi. Schettino is being tried for manslaughter, causing the shipwreck and abandoning ship over the January 2012 capsize of the Concordia, in which 32 people died. The Associated Press HOUSTON Army has begun questioning Bergdahl A defense attorney for Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl said the U.S. Army has begun questioning the soldier about his disappearance in Afghanistan that led to five years in captivity by the Taliban. Eugene R. Fidell said his client is cooperating with the investigation at Fort Sam Houston in San Antonio. The investigation’s findings will help determine whether the 28-year-old is prosecuted for desertion or faces other disciplinary action. Bergdahl had been receiving care at Fort Sam Houston since returning to the United States on June 13 after his release by the Taliban on May 31. Earlier this month, the Army announced Bergdahl had been given a desk job. INDIANAPOLIS Woman expected baby to die in garbage can An Indianapolis woman whose co-workers found her newborn son gasping for air in a garbage can told a detective she expected the boy to die after she gave birth in a warehouse restroom and dumped the child in the trash. Briana Holland, 22, was arrested and charged with attempted murder and child neglect after the boy was found Friday night with his head covered in a bag, trash in his mouth and toilet paper wrapped around his neck, court documents said. The co-workers and a nurse at the warehouse cared for the boy, who was purple and cold when he was discovered, until medics arrived and took him to a hospital, according to court documents. He now is in the custody of child welfare officials. Deputy VA chief: Leaders failed HONOLULU (AP) — Hawaii residents furiously stocked up on essentials as two hurricanes churned toward the islands, prompting flash flood warnings, closing schools and disrupting travel plans across the islands. Hurricane Iselle loomed about 600 miles east of the Big Island early Wednesday, spinning at 85 mph. Weather officials predicted it would weaken but said it could strike the city of Hilo today with tropical storm-force winds of about 50 mph. Hurricane Julio swirled closely behind, packing winds of 75 mph. Forecasters expected the storm to strengthen and pass north of the Hawaiian Islands this weekend. “Hawaii should be more interested now in Hurricane Iselle, which is closer,” said Lixion Avlia, senior hurricane forecaster with National Hurricane Center in Miami. He said Hurricane Julio remained too far away to accurately predict its path. Hawaii has been directly hit by hurricanes only three times since 1950, though the region has had 147 tropical cyclones over that time. The last time Hawaii was hit with a tropical storm or hurricane was in 1992, when Hurricane Iniki killed six people and destroyed more than 1,400 homes in Kauai, said Eric Lau, meteorologist for the National Weather Service in Honolulu. “We’ve been lucky so far,” he said. “So we just need to really take this threat seriously and make sure everybody is prepared.” Residents have seemed to heed that call this week. A grocery store in the coastal Oahu community of Waianae opened 15 minutes early Tuesday because people were lined up to buy supplies. The storms have prompted public schools on the Big Island, Maui, Molokai and Lanai to close today, state education officials said. For its part, Hawaiian Airlines will waive reservation change fees and fare differences for passengers who need to alter travel plans because of the storms. The airline said fees will be waived for those who are ticketed to travel today and Friday. Chris Pruett of Waikiki was anticipating the silver lining that comes from bad weather: good waves. “We’re just getting water and preparing ourselves, too,” he said. “Of course we’re not looking for a storm ... but it tends to generate good waves.” N ATI ON B riefs W O RLD B riefs DENVER (AP) — Failed leader ship is one reason some veterans hospitals are falling short as others excel, Deputy Veterans Affairs Secretary Sloan Gibson said. Gibson told a convention of wounded combat veterans in Denver on Tuesday that more VA employees will be disciplined as the agency tries to root out the causes of a scandal over long waits for health care and falsified data. Gibson visited the Denver veterans hospital Wednesday before leaving Colorado to tour facilities in Seattle and Portland, Ore. The VA has been shaken by reports that veterans died while waiting for treatment and allegations that workers falsified records to cover up the delays, in some cases so the workers could collect bonuses. The agency announced last week that it planned to fire two supervisors and discipline four other employees in Colorado and Wyoming accused of falsifying health care data. “These were the first in what I expect will be a long series of announcements of personnel actions,” Gibson told the Military Order of the Purple Heart, an orga nization of veterans who received the medal for combat wounds. Gibson said when he visited the troubled Phoenix VA hospital, some employees choked back tears describing the obstacles they encountered in trying to care for veterans. “What I saw was leadership fail ure, mismanagement and chronic underinvestment,” he said. Leadership was the difference between the Phoenix facility and the well-run veterans hospital in San Antonio, he said. “Everywhere I turned I saw excellence” at the San Antonio facility, he said. “But for leadership, Phoenix could have looked like that.” Gibson praised Congress for approving $16.3 billion to help shorten the waits, including $10 billion for veterans to get care from private doctors, called purchased care.

Tommy Ford, who had a direct phone line to the room during negotia tions, said McKeithen did not draw his gun until discussions deteriorated and Lepak began waving his firearm in the direc tion of the sheriff’, who is a trained hostage or crisis negotiator “Sheriff McKeithen felt that in Lepak’s mind only one of them was leaving that room alive,” Ford said. “At that point (McKeithen) drew his firearm and fired several times.” Lepak fell backward, then placed his pistol in his mouth and fired, Ford said. He was not breathing as BCSO medical personnel rushed on the scene. EMS staff were able to regain a pulse en route to a local hos pital, where he was admit ted in critical condition. Lepak remained in critical condition Wednesday. Springfield Police Department wanted Lepak in connection to a July 27 domestic violence incident between he and his wife, which left Rhonda Lepak permanently disfigured. According to the prob able cause affidavit, during an argument at their East Ninth Street home, Aaron Lepak reportedly grabbed Rhonda Lepak and picked her up before placing her in a headlock. When she came to, she couldn’t feel her legs and couldn’t get up on to her feet, Rhonda Lepak told police. After lying on the ground pleading for help, Aaron Lepak placed her on the sofa. He later carried her to their bedroom. The next day, Rhonda Lepak said she convinced him to call for help and EMS took her to the local hospital where she learned she had been paralyzed, the affida vit stated. She is still under hospi tal care. On Aug. 1, the mother of Aaron Lepak, Catherine Lepak, filed a missing per son report with Springfield police before investigators discovered he was in hid ing, Chief Philip Thorne said. He retreated to the Bud get Inn until authorities confronted him Tuesday, and 90 minutes of negotia tions ended in gunfire. McKeithen was placed on administrative leave pending FDLE’s investi gation, a standard proce dure in a deputy-involved shooting. McKeithen is not bound to that policy, Ford said, but imposed the standard upon himself. BCSO will follow up the FDLE investigation with an administrative investi gation of its own to evaluate BCSO’s response.

The local papers at the time said he wandered onto an older couple’s property and began shouting and scar ing the residents. The first officer to respond would say Montin shot at him, and there were allegations he opened fire on several law enforcement offi cers. After an 11-hour standoff, Montin was arrested. Nobody was hurt. The story jurors heard was dif ferent, and most of the charges against him were dismissed for lack of evidence. Still, he was diagnosed with mental illness and committed. Montin said the doctors at the hospital relied on false or faulty information when they re-evaluated his condition. The hospital, Lincoln Regional Center, is operated by Nebraska’s Department of Health and Human Services, which does not comment on pending litigation, a spokeswoman said. Montin didn’t want to talk too much about the lawsuit, either. For now, Montin is back home, try ing to rebuild a life. He’s working and trying to resolve issues of his parents’ estate. He’s met a woman with chil dren and is enjoying being involved in their lives. “The truth doesn’t make you right, and being right doesn’t mean you’re going to win,” he said.

Now scientists say a more recently identified, less common gene can do the same. Mutations in the gene can make breast cancer up to nine times more likely to develop, an international team of researchers reports in this week’s New England Journal of Medicine. About 5 to 10 percent of breast cancers are thought to be caused by faulty BRCA1 or BRCA2 genes. Beyond those, many other genes are thought to play a role but how much each one raises risk has not been known, said Dr. Jeffrey Weitzel, a genetics expert at City of Hope Cancer Center in Duarte, Calif. The new study on the gene — called PALB2 — shows “this one is serious,” and probably is the most dangerous in terms of breast cancer after the BRCA genes, said Weitzel, one of leaders of the study. It involved 362 members of 154 families with PALB2 mutations — the largest study of its kind. The faulty gene seems to give a woman a 48 percent chance of developing breast cancer by age 70 and an even greater risk if she has two or more close relatives with the disease. That’s almost as high as the risk from a faulty BRCA2 gene, Dr. Michele Evans of the National Institute on Aging and Dr. Dan Longo of the medical journal staff write in a commentary in the journal. The PALB2 gene works with BRCA2 as a tumor suppressor, so when it is mutated, cancer can flourish. How common the mutations are isn’t well known, but it’s “probably more than we thought because people just weren’t testing for it,” Weitzel said. He found three cases among his own breast cancer patients in the past month alone. Among breast cancer patients, BRCA mutations are carried by 5 percent of whites and 12 percent of Eastern European (Ashkenazi) Jews. PALB2 mutations have been seen in up to 4 percent of families with a history of breast cancer. WASHINGTON (AP) — In much of the world’s oceans, levels of the metal mercury are double to triple what they were before the industrial revolution, a new study says. Researchers found there’s more mercury from human sources — mostly burning fossil fuels and mining for gold — than scientists had thought. The study assessed inorganic mercury, which in the ocean gets converted into the toxic methylmercury found in seafood. When pregnant women, nursing mothers and young children eat too much methylmercury-tainted seafood, there’s an increased risk of nervous system problems in the developing child. The new results don’t provide any immediate conclusions about eating fish, says Carl Lamborg of the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute in Massachusetts. His study is published Wednesday in the journal Nature. Space probe joins comet after 10-year, 4 billion mile chase DARMSTADT, Germany (AP) — Turning what seemed like a science fiction tale into reality, an unmanned probe swung alongside a comet Wednesday after a 4 billion mile chase through outer space over the course of a decade. Europe’s Rosetta probe will orbit and study the giant lump of dust and ice as it hurtles toward the sun and, if all goes according to plan, drop a lander onto the comet in the coming months. Rosetta turned up as planned for its rendezvous with comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko somewhere between the orbits of Mars and Jupiter. The incredible trip, launched on March 2, 2004, marks a milestone in mankind’s effort to understand the mysterious shooting stars that periodically flash past Earth, and which often have been viewed with fear and trepidation. While the moon, Mars and even asteroids have been visited, no spacecraft has yet gotten so close to a comet. Having achieved this feat, Rosetta will go one step further and drop a lander on 67P’s icy surface — a maneuver planned for November. “You can compare what we’ve done so far to finding a speck of dust in a big city,” said Gerhard Schwehm, who was lead scientist on the Rosetta mission until his recent retirement. That is an understatement. To catch their quarry, scientists at the European Space Agency had to overcome a series of hurdles that included a last-minute change of destination — after a carrier rocket failure delayed launch — and a tense hibernation period of 31 months during which the probe was out of contact with ground stations. Before Rosetta swung alongside 67P with a final thrust Wednesday, the spacecraft also had to accelerate to 34,000 mph — a speed that required three loops around Earth and one around Mars. Underlining the singular achievement, ESA’s directorgeneral Jean-Jacques Dordain told scientists and spectators at the mission control center in Darmstadt, Germany: “This is your only chance to have a rendezvous with a comet.” Rosetta now will spend several months observing 67P from a safe distance of up to 60 miles. This will give scientists time to find a safe place to land Rosetta’s sidekick, Philae. This maneuver will pose an unprecedented challenge because there will be no second shot. Recent pictures of 67P show its surface is porous, with steep cliffs and housesized boulders. One person involved with Rosetta from the start said the landing was “mission impossible” with only a slim chance of success. He spoke on condition of anonymity to avoid harming his employer. Even if the landing fails, Rosetta itself will remain in the comet’s orbit until at least the end of 2015, gathering reams of data with its 11 sensors. As 67P gets closer to the sun it will begin to fizz and release the cloud of dust and ice that most people associate with comets. “We’re going to have a ringside seat to see, for the first time, a comet turn into a comet, to develop its tail and explain what for centuries mankind has been puzzled by,” said David Southwood, a former president of the Royal Astronomical Society. AP In this picture taken Sunday by Rosetta’s OSIRIS camera, Comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko is pictured from a distance of 178 miles.

Energy, beer stabilize stocks NEW YORK (AP) — U.S. stocks stabilized on Wednesday after energy stocks and earnings from a major beer brewer helped the market stem its recent declines. The stock market ended the day little changed after a sizable drop a day earlier, when Russia massed troops near its border with Ukraine. Molson Coors was the biggest gainer in the Standard & Poor’s 500 index after the company reported better-than-forecast earnings. Rupert Murdoch’s 21st Century Fox rose after the company said it was drop ping a bid to acquire Time Warner. The stock market has become more volatile in recent weeks and last month slumped to its first monthly decline since January. Investors are weighing signs that the U.S. economy is strengthening against the threat of an escalating conflict in Ukraine, as well as the prospect of the Federal Reserve raising its benchmark interest rate. “On the one hand the U.S. econ omy is really starting to look good, but on the other hand the markets are certainly jittery about what’s going on in Ukraine and Russia,” said Anasta sia Amoroso, Global Markets Strate gist at J.P. Morgan Funds. The S&P 500 rose a fraction of a point, or less than 0.1 percent, to 1,920.24. The index lost 18 points, or 1 percent, on Tuesday. The index is still up on the year, but has dropped 3.5 percent from its record close set July 24. The Dow Jones industrial average rose 13.87 points, or 0.1 percent, to 16,443.34. The Nas daq composite rose 2.2 points, or 0.1 percent, to 4,355.05. Molson Coors rose $3.87, or 5.8 percent, to $71.08 after the com pany said its second-quarter profit rose 9 percent as better pricing off set a global decline in the volume of beer sales. As well as watching earnings, investors were looking at two merger bids that unraveled. Sprint plunged $1.38, or 19 percent, to $5.90 after the com pany said it was abandoning its pursuit of T-Mobile US. Sprint would have struggled to convince regulators to approve a merger of the No. 3 and No. 4 cellphone carri ers in the nation, according to The Wall Street Journal. Russia to block U.S. ag imports MOSCOW (AP) — Rus sian President Vladimir Putin on Wednesday hit back hard against countries that have imposed sanctions over the Ukraine crisis, ordering trade cuts that an official said would include a ban on all imports of agricultural products from the United States. The full list of products to be banned or limited for up to one year is to be published Thursday. But the state news agency RIA Novosti quoted Alexei Alexeenko of Russia’s plant and vet erinary oversight service as saying “from the USA, all products that are produced there and brought to Russia will be prohibited.” Alexeenko also was quoted as saying he thinks all fruits and vegetables from European Union coun tries will also be banned. The move follows the latest round of sanctions against Russia imposed by the EU last week, which for the first time targeted entire sectors of the Russian economy. The U.S. and the EU have accused Russia, which annexed Ukraine’s Crimean Peninsula in March, of fomenting tensions in east ern Ukraine by supplying arms and expertise to a proMoscow insurgency, and have imposed asset freezes and loan bans on a score of individuals and companies. White House spokes woman Laura Lucas Mag nuson decried the move, saying “Retaliating against Western companies or countries will deepen Rus sia’s international isolation, causing further damage to its own economy.” Russia depends heav ily on imported foodstuffs — most of it from the West — particularly in the larg est and most prosperous cit ies such as Moscow. Food and agricultural imports from the U.S. amounted to $1.3 billion last year, accord ing to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, and in 2013 the EU’s agricultural exports to Russia totaled $15.8 billion. Putin’s order says the limits are being imposed “with the goal of guarantee ing the security of the Rus sian Federation” and calls for undertaking measures to guard against quick price hikes. The order appears to show that Russia, although increasingly suffering the effects of Western sanctions, is disinclined to back down on Ukraine. WALGREENS S TAYING PUT The Associated Press Growing political heat and pos sible customer backlash helped dis suade Walgreen from trying to trim its tax bill by reorganizing overseas as part of an acquisition. But experts say they don’t expect other companies considering the move to follow Walgreen’s lead and stay rooted in the United States. Walgreen, the nation’s biggest drugstore chain, said Wednesday that it would no longer consider a socalled inversion, which has become popular among large, multi-national health care companies looking to cut U.S. taxes. The company said it will instead combine with the Swiss health and beauty retailer Alliance Boots to form a holding company that’s based in the U.S. Walgreen Co. said in a statement that it was “mindful of the ongo ing public reaction to a potential inversion” and its “unique role as an iconic American” retailer. Walgreen’s decision follows a wave of recently announced inver sions that have prompted Presi dent Barack Obama and members of Congress to voice growing con cern about tax revenue the U.S. government could lose from these moves. Despite Walgreen’s deci sion, experts say U.S. companies will likely continue to pursue inver sions because they can still reap big benefits by reorganizing overseas. “We need fundamental corporate tax reform to solve this problem, and it isn’t going to happen in an election year,” said Donald Gold man, an Arizona State University professor. Inversions involve a U.S. com pany reorganizing in another coun try by either acquiring or combining with another business. These deals provide tax relief in a number of ways. They allow companies to transfer money earned overseas to the parent company without paying additional U.S. taxes. Inversions also provide some relief from the U.S. corporate income tax rate of 35 percent, which is the highest in the industrialized world. The U.S. had a competitive tax rate back in the 1980s but that changed when other countries started low ering their rates and the U.S. didn’t follow, said Cynthia Eakin, an asso ciate accounting professor at the University of the Pacific. “We haven’t paid attention to what’s going on globally,” she said. “We don’t really have a global tax strategy.” There have been 47 U.S. compa nies that have put together inver sions through tie-ups with foreign businesses over the past decade, according to the Congressional Research Service. Several others are planning or considering the move. Walgreen was considering an inversion while it decided whether to buy the remaining portion of Alli ance Boots that it didn’t already own. In 2012, the U.S. company bought a 45 percent stake in Alliance Boots, which runs the largest drugstore chain in the United Kingdom. Drugstore chain backs away from inversion deal Collapsed deal might mean lower prices NEW YORK (AP) — The collapse of Sprint’s push to buy T-Mobile US could mean fresh options in wireless plans and lower prices for U.S. con sumers. But in the long run, tougher competition on prices could lead to slower service and slower expan sion of coverage. Sprint’s chairman Masayoshi Son said the company would shift its focus from “consolidation,” i.e. buying up competitors, to “com peting aggressively in the market place.” He is hiring Marcelo Claure, an entrepreneur who hasn’t run a wireless carrier before, to be Sprint Corp.’s new CEO, signaling that Son is looking for a new strategy. Investors expect a price war to be a part of that strategy, and shares of the four nationwide U.S. wireless companies — Verizon, AT&T, Sprint and T-Mobile — fell Wednesday. Sprint may mimic changes made by T-Mobile US Inc. T-Mobile CEO John Legere tossed out the indus try playbook last year, including the ubiquitous two-year service con tract, and has drawn millions of new customers. Legere also cut prices, prompting AT&T to cut its prices. In the most recent move, T-Mobile last week launched a promotion with a very cheap family plan: Unlimited talking and texting on four phones for $100 per month, with 2.5 giga bytes of high-speed data each. That’s about $60 cheaper than the competi tion, though plan details differ. Lower cellphone bills seem like a good thing for consumers. But T-Mobile and Sprint are already los ing money and AT&T’s profits are down. (Verizon, as the market leader, is doing fine.) This matters because U.S. wireless carriers invest more in their networks than European com panies, and higher profits in the U.S. are a big part of the reason. Right now, the U.S. is a leader in building out 4G, the latest wireless technol ogy. But if a company can’t make a consistent profit, it’s less likely to invest in cell towers and other net work equipment. Sprint’s desire to buy T-Mobile was likely called off because it was believed that U.S. regulators would block it, just like they blocked AT&T’s deal to buy T-Mobile in 2011.


Page A6 | The News Herald | Thursday, August 7, 2014 Viewpoints Increase painful but hard to avoid F or Bay County officials this was the year the money finally ran out. After the financial crisis hit in 2008 county officials and constitutional officers made the tough choices necessary to keep serving residents, and they did it without raising taxes, even in the years where the tax base dropped and the same millage rate brought in less money. Some who worked for the county lost their jobs. Those that remained did so with the understanding that the normal raises were no longer normal, or even in the budget. And, even after the initial layoffs, an ongoing hiring freeze in most places meant that if someone left everyone else would just have to do more work. Although, county commissioners could have ended these problems for themselves and the constitutional officers simply by raising the millage rate they understood that the residents of Bay County could not afford another hit for others after taking so many in their own lives. Instead, the county used up a large amount of savings in order to cover holes in its budget. Officials also received a large settlement from BP after the Deepwater Horizon disaster. But both of those wells are dry. This year, in order to meet its routine budget obligations and afford those who have long gone without raises a small increase, the county will be required to raise the millage rate. That’s not something to be taken lightly and it will have a negative impact on families just trying to make it from one paycheck to the next. However, the only way around an increase in the millage rate, at least from what we have seen so far, would be to make even deeper cuts to the county budget. And there comes a point where the cuts would get so deep that the services Bay County’s residents depend on would be severely limited. If we are not already there, we are too close for comfort. And there’s a sense that more people are getting that feeling, too. In order to solve this year’s financial problems Bay County officials proposed a 1-mill increase in the millage rate. The owner of a $100,000 home who qualified for a $25,000 homestead exemption would be required to pay $75 more a year. The 1-mill increase will generate an additional $14 million for the county. And at 4.65 mills the county’s rate will be on par with what other local municipalities with millage rates set last year. If the increase is approved county officials will meet their current budget obligations and be able to take care of some items that have gone neglected too long. Officials said they plan to pump $388,000 into the county’s information technology department, spend $503,900 on county vehicles and $1 million on road improvements. About $439,000 will go to the understaffed Bay County jail for new employees and officials will spend $281,000 on new vehicles for the Bay County Sheriff’s Office. These needs aren’t the caviar wishes that we sometimes hear from politicians at every level who want new buildings or top of the line equipment. These are safety and security needs that will protect inmates, staff members at the jail and deputies on our streets. Sheriff Frank McKeithen made some of the most high profile decisions during the last few years; including starting a new program to keep vehicles on the road longer and giving money back to the county when he could save it out of his own budget. He also has the second largest budget and employs the most people (about 500) after Bay County (about 600) itself. The size of McKeithen’s department meant his budget was the second largest, after the county budget, and led to tension between folks on both sides of the divide. We think it also led to some unfair criticism of McKeithen. Hopefully, as this budget shows, the days of conflict between the county and the sheriff’s office are behind us. Our form of government requires the two offices to work together and our community is a better place when they can. The proposed increase also includes $346,000 for raises for county employees. Constitutional officers will receive $832,000 for raises. County officials said they will give a three percent raise across the board and McKeithen has said he wants to do the same for his employees. As we said in a previous editorial this County Commission has a proven track record when it comes to the millage rate. The Commission, citing rising property values and in recognition of how the high rates were hurting homeowners, lowered its rate three times in 2007, 2008, and 2009. Then, when property values diminished, they declined to raise the rate. That record of resistance to a millage rate increase is something that commissioners can be proud of and helps us give them the benefit of the doubt that, for this year, if they’re saying the increase is necessary it likely is. However, we look forward to a day when property values improve. When that happens it will allow commissioners to lower the rate once again rather than increase the burden on property owners. It’s up to all of us to remind commissioners, at that time, not to forget the rollback part of this equation. S T EVE S A CK | The Minneapolis Star Tribune N avi Pillay, U.N. high commissioner for human rights, has accused both Israel and Hamas militants of committing war crimes in the Gaza conflict. Her harshest criticism, as well as that of most nations, has been reserved for the Israeli government, charging that it has committed war crimes in direct violation of the Geneva Conventions. In the wake of the huge difference in casualties and property destruction, many in the West have accused the Israeli government of making a grossly disproportionate response to terrorist rocket attacks. A New York Times (July 23, 2014) article titled “As Much of the World Frowns on Israel, Americans Hold Out Support” says that a number of “world leaders and demonstrators pointed to the lopsided number of Palestinian casualties — more than 650, most of them civilians — versus 35 on the Israeli side, 32 of them soldiers.” By now, those numbers have tripled, but let’s think about some of the arguments being made. First, let’s take a historical look at proportionality in response to an attack. In February 1945, in Dresden, Germany, 25,000 lives were lost in one night and the city was reduced to rubble as a result of British and U.S. bombers firebombing. In March 1945, 300 U.S. B-29 planes dropped incendiary bombs on Tokyo, killing more than 100,000 people, with millions injured and made homeless. Later, atomic bombs were dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki, leading to even greater loss of life and property destruction. Who’s willing to criticize the Allies for lack of proportionality in response to Germany’s and Japan’s attacks? Though the Allies brought about a horrible loss of life and massive destruction, one thing is very clear and indisputable: Neither country has attacked ever since. Anti-Semitic attacks have skyrocketed in Europe in the wake of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. It’s not just a criticism of Israel’s foreign policy; it’s an attack on Jews. Synagogues have faced Molotov cocktails, bomb threats and vandalism. Several European cities have seen slogans such as “Dirty Jews,” “Jews your end is near,” “Out with Zionists,” “Israel executioner” and “Save Gaza! Hitler, you were right!” According to RT, over the past month there has been a 50 percent increase in hate crimes against Jews in Britain. The Western anti-Semitic and antiIsrael response is amazing and somewhat disconcerting. Israel is the only democratic nation in the Middle East. It has respect for relatively free markets, personal liberty and private property rights. Many Westerners give their moral support to Muslims who, as a matter of religion, practice brutal control of women that includes honor killings. Many Muslims consider homosexuality to be not only a sin but a crime under Islamic law punishable by death. What Westerners consider basic human rights are often outlawed in Islamic nations. The Quran is the religious guide of Islam, and Muslims believe it to be a revelation from God. It contains more than 100 verses that call Muslims to war with nonbelievers for the sake of Islamic rule. Westerners who condemn Israel and support the recent anti-Semitic attacks — or remain silent in the face of them — are by no means spared from Islamic condemnation as infidels. It has to be heart-rending to any decent person to witness the suffering of the Palestinians, who’re experiencing a major tragedy both in casualties and in property destruction. Though it is Hamas firing rockets into Israel, the ordinary Palestinian is not to be held blameless. Palestinians know that Hamas is storing rockets and building tunnels in civilian areas and that if Israel tries to take out these rockets and tunnels, civilian casualties will be part of the collateral damage. Their silence and acceptance implies support for the tactics of Hamas. Gen. William T. Sherman told the 1879 graduating class of the Michigan Military Academy, “War is hell.” There’s no nice war, and that’s why war should be a last alternative. Those Westerners who criticize Israel’s response to close to 3,000 rocket attacks might tell us what Israel should do in response — just take the rockets, surrender or leave the Middle East?

The media should have a high level of professionalism, accuracy and impartiality. It should help ensure transparency and accountability in our government. However, we don’t get this from our mainstream media, which is so biased towards the Obama Administration and Democrats, that it appears to be government controlled! They show little regard for accurate reporting and are more concerned with covering up all the Obama scandals by underreporting or censoring. They twist and distort the truth or outright lie about Republicans. Here are a few examples: Can you imagine the coverage if a Republican President knowingly lied, like Obama, and told Americans they could keep their doctors and health insurance plans under Obamacare? Where are the stories about real people who lost their insurance and doctors under Obamacare? Isn’t it a bit suspicious that IRS official, Lois Lerner, pleaded the Fifth Amendment and that her emails mysteriously disappeared? Isn’t it strange that 90,000 illegal children show up at our borders during Obama’s Presidency? Could it possibly have to do with him and his policies? Don’t you wonder why Obama delayed Obamacare’s Employer Mandate until after the November election? Did you know he did this illegally, without the consent of Congress? The media wants us to believe that Republicans are racists, but Republicans are responsible for passing civil rights legislation. Did you know that the 14th Amendment that gave citizenship to freed slaves received 94% Republican support and 0% Democrat support? Harry Reid has blocked an abundance of meaningful legislation yet he and the media blame the Republicans for not cooperating with the Obama Administration. The above are just some of the examples of underreporting and censoring. The liberal-biased mainstream media has spent decades deceiving Americans. Americans should start demanding the truth. In the meantime, we can now turn to Fox News to get the real news.

Israel is claiming that it has the right to defend itself and blaming Hamas for starting the aggression. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu blamed Hamas and started a campaign of arrest against Hamas members. He called Hamas terrorists. In fact they are militant fighters for the freedom and independence of the Palestinians from the brutal Israeli occupation of their land. Netanyahu is hawk who fought against all peace efforts by the United States to create independent Israeli and Palestinian States. He continued with his policy of building Israeli settlements on Palestinian land. Hamas and all Palestinians also have the right to fight for liberty and freedom from Israeli apartheid occupation. In 1947 The United Nations passed a resolution to divide Palestine into three territories: the State Of Israel, the State of Palestine and International Jerusalem. Millions of Palestinian refugees are living in Gaza, Jordan, Lebanon and Syria. There will never be a peace for Israel until it makes a true peace with the Palestinians. Many in Israel do not want peace. They want to grab more land for a greater Israel.

U.N. chief: Gaza deaths, destruction shame world UNITED NATIONS (AP) — Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon demanded on Wednesday an end to the continuous senseless suffering in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, telling the General Assembly “the massive deaths and destruction in Gaza have shocked and shamed the world.” Ban urged the international community to support the enormous task of rebuilding Gaza, providing humanitarian aid to thousands in need and treating the wounded. “We will build again, but this must be the last time to rebuild,” the U.N. chief told the 193-member world body. “This must stop now. They must go back to the negotiating table. “We must spare no effort to turn the current calm into a durable cease-fire that addresses the underlying issues of the conflict.” He said that means ending weapons smuggling into and rocket fire from Gaza, opening its crossings, lifting Israel’s blockade and bringing the Hamas-ruled strip back under a unified Palestinian government. Ban also called on Hamas to honor past commitments made by Yasser Arafat’s Palestine Liberation Organization, including the right of the state of Israel to exist. The U.N.’s deputy humanitarian chief, Kyung-wha Kang, said the United Nations and its partners have appealed for $367 million to address immediate needs for more than 500,000 people — more than one-quarter of Gaza’s 1.8 million population — who “fled for their lives with nothing.” She said 65,000 people have lost everything because their homes were reduced to rubble. Kang painted a grim picture of what she called the “utter devastation” in Gaza: 144 schools and other facilities damaged; a public health system “on the verge of collapse” with one-third of the hospitals, 14 primary health care clinics and 29 ambulances damaged; more than one million people without access to water and very limited electricity; and the prevalence of unexploded ammunition. Kang said the lack of electricity means hospitals can’t power critical machinery, food production will decrease and water and sewage can’t be pumped. Sewage back-ups could contaminate water, making the outbreak of disease “a very serious risk,” she said. Nigeria rushes to get isolation tents for Ebola LAGOS, Nigeria (AP) — Nigerian authorities rushed to obtain isola tion tents Wednesday in anticipation of more Ebola infections as they dis closed five more cases of the virus and a death in Africa’s most populous nation, where officials were racing to keep the gruesome disease confined to a small group of patients. The five new Nigerian cases were all in Lagos, a megacity of 21 million people in a country already beset with poor health care infrastructure and widespread corruption, and all five were reported to have had direct con tact with one infected man. Meanwhile, the World Health Orga nization began a meeting to decide whether the crisis, the worst recorded outbreak of its kind, amounts to an international public health emergency. At least 932 deaths in four countries have been blamed on the illness, with 1,711 reported cases. In recent years, the WHO has declared an emergency only twice, for swine flu in 2009 and polio in May. The declaration would probably come with recommendations on travel and trade restrictions and wider Ebola screen ing. It also would be an acknowledg ment that the situation is critical and could worsen without a fast global response. The group did not immediately confirm the new cases reported in Nigeria. And Nigerian authorities did not release any details on the latest infections, except to say they all had come into direct contact with the sick man who arrived by plane in Lagos late last month. With the death toll mounting in the region, Liberia’s president announced a state of emergency late Wednes day and said it may result in the sus pension of some citizens’ rights. She lamented that fear and panic had kept many family members from sending sick relatives to isolation centers. “Ignorance and poverty, as well as entrenched religious and cultural practices, continue to exacerbate the spread of the disease,” President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf said. And in Sierra Leone, where enforc ing quarantines of sick patients also has been met with resistance, some 750 soldiers deployed to the Ebolaravaged east as part of “Operation Octopus.” Ebola, which causes some victims to bleed from the eyes, mouth and ears, can only be transmitted through direct contact with the bodily fluids of someone who is sick — blood, semen, saliva, urine, feces or sweat. Millions in Lagos live in cramped conditions without access to flushable toilets. Signs posted across the city warn people not to urinate in public. Kenneth Akihomi, a 47-year-old worker installing fiber-optic cable, said he was carefully washing his hands to avoid infection. But he said most people were relying on faith to stay healthy. “They’re not panicking. They are godly people,” he said. “They believe they can pray, and maybe very soon there will be cure.” The revelation of more infections also came amid a public-sector doc tors’ strike in Nigeria that began in early July. So far, health workers moni toring the latest Ebola patients are still on the job. Nigeria is the fourth West African country to be hit by the Ebola outbreak since it first emerged in March in the remote tropical forests of Guinea. The disease then spread to neighbor ing Sierra Leona and Liberia before reaching Nigeria, where it surfaced shortly before the government drew criticism for its response to the abduc tion of more than 200 schoolgirls by Islamic militants back in April. The girls are still missing. Nigerian authorities said Tuesday that doctors did not suspect Patrick Sawyer was suffering from Ebola when the 40-year-old Liberian-Ameri can arrived by plane late last month in Lagos, where the streets are a bewildering mix of wealth and abject poverty, awash in luxury SUVs and decrepit buses.

No one mentioned Southerland’s name during the event, but it was clear who Nelson was referring to with comments about the government shutdown and the violence against women act, two common jabs from Graham’s campaign. Graham’s feel-good stump speech was long on hugging and dancing and optimism and compromise, but short on specific policy details. Still, she got in a few digs of her own at her Republican opponent. She was critical of Southerland’s comment that his $174,000 salary was “not so much,” according to the Tallahassee Democrat. “Why are we paying you a dime when you’re not doing anything?” she said. The lack of specifics was forgivable at this point in the campaign, said Jack Peter son, who attended with his wife Deanna. He didn’t hear everything he wanted to hear from Graham, but he said he “heard enough for a campaign kickoff.” Peterson said his politics are more issue-centered — he doesn’t really care much which party wins — but he wants a government that works and elected officials who are open to compro mise. He was ticked about the government shutdown. Public health is one of the issues Peterson is passion ate about. He’s a retired edu cator in the field of mosquito control and mosquito-borne illness. He said Southerland voted the right way recently on bill that could have nega tively impacted mosquito control programs, but he more often disagrees with the congressman. He was pretty excited after the event. “There was a really great energy in here tonight,” Peterson said. Bay County is Souther land’s electoral bread-andbutter — he’s received more than 70 percent of votes here the past two elections — a fact that Gwen Graham acknowledged. She urged her supporters to talk up their friends, family, neigh bors and even strangers, and said the first campaign office she opened was in Bay County “because I wanted to send a strong signal that I’m going to represent every body in this district.” Earlier Wednesday, the aptly named Grilling with the Grahams tour featured eight family members span ning three generations planting smooth cordgrass to guard against shore ero sion in St. Andrew Bay. The workdays were a hallmark of her father’s numerous suc cessful campaigns. The sessions are a way for Graham to gain an under standing of issues she is not as familiar with as she would like to be, campaign spokes man Eric Conrad said. “The tradition of the Gra ham workday really speaks to what North Florida Way is about,” Conrad said.

You’re so vain, you probably think this Squall is about you. The Cole Bros. Circus of Stars is coming in October. I can’t wait to see the tent raising! I’m going back out and eat after school starts and the lines are gone. When I was in the Army, we ate at the mess hall. We had a snack bar, but no fast food places. Someone needs to open a place where people 50 can go and dance to the true music of our youth. If they would have put rain gutters on the Callaway water tank, it would be filled for free by now. The roads here are awesome. If you don’t think so then travel in Iowa, Nebraska, Illinois and Indiana. Thank you Bay County, for working very hard and repairing the water main! Hope your utility personnel know how much we care. Call me a moron to my face. “Call me a moron to my face.” OK, you’re a moron to your face! Happy now? You live in Kings Point and are griping about a lousy $71 additional charge for the dredging project? You gotta be kidding! The residents of Kristanna Drive want our canal dredged like the residents of Kings Point received. We would gladly pay that amount. Why oh why don’t they synchronize the lights on 23rd? Everyone would save a lot of gas if they didn’t need to stop at every light. It doesn’t get any better for a gal than seeing a sunrise through longleaf pines within the sweet embrace of new boyfriend. Loving P.C. I am officially addicted to Squall.

S quall L ine PANAMA CITY NEWS HERALD THURSDAY August 7, 2014 Section B Local & State panamacitynewsherald Twitter: @The_News_Herald Legislature to keep new map simpleTA LL AHASS EE (AP) — Florida legislators are returning to the state Capitol with a simple goal: Redraw the state’s 27 congressio nal districts with as few changes as possible. The nine-day special session that kicks off Thursday is being sparked by a judge’s ruling that found two districts were drawn ille gally to benefit Republicans. Circuit Judge Terry Lewis last week gave legislators until Aug. 15 to draw up a new map. But instead of fighting either rul ing GOP legislative leaders have decided to adopt a new congres sional map that calls for changes to just a handful of districts. That map will focus primarily on the two districts flagged by the judge: A sprawling district that runs from Jacksonville to Orlando held by U.S. Rep. Corrine Brown and a central Florida district held by U.S. Rep. Dan Webster. The final product adopted by leg islators will likely include targeted fixes to the boundaries of those two districts and some changes to adjoining districts. It is improb able they would make widespread changes such as one proposal that calls for shifting Brown’s dis trict from central Florida to north Florida. “It seems to me what the Legis lature ought to do is take the judge’s ruling seriously and literally and resolve the problems associated with the two districts that he found to be invalid and try to minimize any unintended chaos,” Senate President Don Gaetz said Wednes day. “I don’t think we should look for an excuse to set off a chain of domi noes that will cause more confusion or chaos than is necessary.” Voters in 2010 passed the “Fair Districts” amendment that says Local woman to represent Florida By AMANDA B ANK S 522-5118|@pcnhamanda L Y NN HA VEN — A Bay County woman will repre sent Florida at the Miss America pageant this year. Victoria Cowen, 21, of Lynn Haven, was announced winner of the Miss Florida Scholarship Pageant after the discovery of a mix-up with judges’ votes that ini tially named her first run ner-up June 21. It took five days for the mistabulation to be corrected and the rever sal announced. Despite the drama, Cowen remains upbeat and hopeful for her future in the competition. “The founda tion of the program rests upon honesty, and I am so blessed to be a part of an organiza tion who takes the high road instead of the easy way out,” Cowen said in a statement released by the Miss Florida Scholarship pageant. Cowen’s time now is filled with preparing for the Miss America pageant in September, by traveling around Florida to promote her nonprofit organization One Chance, One Choice Inc., a youth mentoring program. “I’m looking to mentor girls on right decision mak ing and really encouraging them to realize how every MISS AMERICA New buses added to school fleet By J A CQUELINE BO STICK 747-5081 | @PCNHJBostick P A N A M A CI TY — The new school year will start with new, cooler buses. Bay District’s transportation welcomed two of 10 new Cummins engine IC Bus CE series 77-pas senger buses Wednesday. Each bus is easy on the environment, fuel efficient and comes with eight cameras and air conditioning. The remaining eight buses will arrive by the start of the school year. Each new bus costs about $102,700 each. “We’re trying our best to upgrade the buses as much as we possibly can,” said Bob Downin, transportation director. These buses “got a lot more than we had in the past; and we’re excited about it.” The district’s decades-old fleet of 147 buses has been in the process of being replaced with new high-tech buses during the past few years. Eventually, at about 10 new buses per year, the fleet will be completely new and up-to-date. Including the delivery of the 10, 29 new buses have been added altogether. “These are the first IC TURTLE RETURNS TO THE SEA VICTORIA COWENAbove and right, volunteer Roger Straley and Stephanie Nagle, education coordinator at Gulf World, release a loggerhead turtle that recovered from pneumonia back into the water Wednesday at Crooked Island Beach in Panama City Beach.

legislators cannot draw up districts to favor incum bents or a political party. A coalition of groups, includ ing the League of Women Voters, contended that the Republican consultants used a “shadow” process to draw districts that benefited Republicans. The lawsuits alleged that districts all over the state, including ones located in South Florida and the Tampa area, violated the new standards but Lewis only ruled that two were unconstitutional. Senate Democratic Leader Chris Smith said it’s clear that GOP leaders are willing to draw a new map now to avoid the chance that other districts could be declared unconstitutional if a court fight lingered. “I think the Republicans got the map they pretty much wanted,” said Smith, D-Fort Lauderdale. “They figure they can do some these little changes and stave off more changes.” Once legislators adopt a new map it won’t necessar ily end the legal battles. The groups that filed the lawsuit wanted Lewis to draw up a new map and argued unsuc cessfully that legislators couldn’t be trusted to draw up valid maps. One of their attorneys earlier this week said “it remains to be seen whether they will produce maps that comply with the constitution.” Legislative leaders also remain firmly opposed to holding a special election later this year with the new map. They say that the new map shouldn’t be implemented until 2016. Lewis said he is considering ordering a special election after November, but admits he hasn’t made up his mind yet. If Lewis did order a spe cial election it would likely trigger a federal lawsuit from the Legislature that argues a state judge doesn’t have the authority to order federal elections.

Cowen will participate in a school tour and other appearances with the Ever glades Foundation, a part nership she called “very important” to the Miss Flor ida organization. “I’m just really excited for the year to come,” Cowen said. Cowen says she’s been competing “pretty much my whole life,” starting with a talent-based scholarship program when she was 1year-old. “I won over $30,000 and it pretty much put me through college,” Cowen said. Cowen’s talent is danc ing. Her winning number from the Miss Florida pag eant was a lyrical dance to the song “God’s Will.” “ ‘God’s Will’ was special to me. I had actually danced to it a few years prior. It’s about a little boy who really affects this woman’s life in a good way, so that’s what I tried to portray,” Cowen said. Pageants sometimes are considered detrimental to women, with shows such as TLC’s Toddlers and Tiaras serving to further negative stereotypes that “beauty pageants” focus only on girls’ looks and promote unfair ideals of beauty, but Cowen disagrees. “This organization is the largest scholarship program for women in the world,” she said, citing that it makes available about $45 million annually. Cowen’s own win nings through pageants will allow her to graduate debtfree from Florida State Uni versity in 2016. She is pursuing a double major in marketing and pro fessional sales. Cowen also contributes her development of self-con fidence, leadership skills and communication skills to her pageant experiences, skills she says will stick with her and benefit her. “I would not be where I am today without pageants,” she said. The Miss America pag eant will air on ABC on Sept. 14. CE buses with a Cummins engine delivered in the state of Florida,” said Frank Con tinetti, sales director at LBS South, the bus company. “These buses will replace buses that were model year 1990 vintage or so, so these buses will be more than 20 times cleaner than the buses they’re replacing. “Actually the air going out of the engine or the exhaust is cleaner than the air going in,” Downin said. And, instead of the roughly six to 7.5 miles per gallon, the CE series goes 8.5 to 10 miles on the gallon, according to Continetti. IC Bus is the vehicle brand, while CE refers to the series. By the start of school Aug. 19, the buses will be equipped with the zolar system, which tracks elementary students’ entry-exit points on buses, and with GPS, which all of Bay’s school buses have. The district approved $341,830 last year to make such technology upgrades to buses. Local capital improve ment taxes paid for the new buses. School district officials couldn’t provide an estimate of how much money thenew buses will save. “It’s really hard to put a dollar figure on it,” Downin said. A new fleet “in itself” should “drive the cost of our expense down.” He said he expects the air conditioning system to be the most important facet of the buses for students and drivers alike.

These were the spoken words as my precious “Toe” entered into his eternal resting place on Tuesday morning, Aug. 5, 2014. Waiting hand in hand with his Lord and savior Jesus Christ to welcome him home were his parents, Alto, Sr. and Maude Borland; his siblings, Sara and Boyce Borland; his beloved children, Lynn and Rhett Borland. Left behind to cherish all their memories are his beloved wife and best friend of 30 years, Vanessa Borland; brother and sister-in-law, Alvin and Noel Phelps; numerous nieces, nephews and cousins, all of whom he loved dearly. Toe was born at home on Sept. 6, 1927, in Pinckard, Ala., where he remained until graduating high school and joining the U.S. Navy for three years. He then returned home to attend college in Birmingham where he received his degree in Pharmacy in 1953. After moving around several years with his family, he settled in Panama City for the last 22 years of his career at Bay Medical Center where he became their first pharmacist in 1967. Toe retired in 1989, moving full time to his beloved Howards Creek. He was an avid fisherman and loved being on the river as often as possible. At the end of the day there was nothing better than one of his fish fries and stories from days gone by. He was the quintessential southern story teller with the gift of a lively imagination and the unique ability to weave a story around an event, lace it with his infectious humor and deliver in convincingly. Most of all he was a “good man” who loved his Lord and studied his Bible every day. Until I get there my “best friend,” you have been my true love and greatest joy. I’ll meet you at the gate!! I will always love you!! Funeral services for “Toe” will be held on Thursday, Aug. 7, 2014, at 2 p.m. CDT at Southerland Family Funeral Home Chapel.

Four of the five voting board members approved hiring Debra Noyes. There was no discussion. Board member Mark Davis abstained because he said Noyes is his first cousin. Her hiring comes a little more than a month after the district’s budget was thrust into the spot light and concerns were raised about the CFO not having to be a certified public account. Noyes, a Walton High School graduate, is a CPA who has had experience as a hospital CFO. She will begin her duties Sept. 8. Her salary will be set after her former employers send in infor mation confirming her years of experience, said Sonya Alford, who oversees human resources for the district. Superintendent Carlene Anderson said Noyes was one of six applicants for the position. Only Noyes and one other appli cant were CPAs. Anderson also told the board members she would ask them to extend the contract of interim CFO Jim Messer so he could help with the transition. The board also was slated to approve the new job description for the chief financial officer, but ultimately tabled it after questions were raised about how much the proposed one would limit appli cants. They’ve discussed changes to the job description since a local organization raised issue with the previous CFO’s education and certification. ALTO BORLAND

AN EXCITING SALES OPPORTUNITY IN THE NEWS HERALD, WORKING ON: DIB has beer revenue shortfall from Friday Fest By BEN KLEINE 522-5114 | @BenKleinepcnh PANAMA CITY — A discrep ancy in proceeds from beer sales at Friday Fest last week demon strates a need for better cash man agement, Downtown Improvement Board Chairman Jim Hayden said Wednesday. “We should have physi cally more money than we do,” Hayden said at the regular DIB meeting. “We have to have better cash management.” DIB director Dutch Sanger said the DIB made $7,263 on beer last Friday but he said they should have made about $7,500. The group spent $3,380 on 33 kegs of beer: 19 kegs of Budweiser and Bud Light at $89, six kegs of Miche lob Ultra at $99, five kegs of Bass at $129 and three kegs of Goose Island Honkers Ale at $150. With the DIB’s prices — $3.50 for Bud and Bud Light, $4 for Michelob Ultra, $4.50 for Bass and $5.50 per 24 ounce glass — had the DIB sold every ounce of every keg, at 1,985 ounces per keg, the group should have made about $10,709. However, Hayden said the group only sold 25.5 kegs out of those 33. Sanger said waste was the problem either from the vendors at each of the booths, manned by vol unteer groups working for tips, and from too many kegs being tapped. The DIB stops tapping kegs at 9 p.m. Sanger said. The solution accepted by the board is having subcontracted security personnel periodically collect money per empty keg dur ing the event. Sanger said this was the previous policy but it had been stopped with money staying with one person for too long. Sanger said he does not handle any of the beer-sales money. The DIB also discussed mov ing beer vendors from the corner of Fourth Street and Harrison Avenue to Beach Drive and Harri son and the vendor on Fifth Street and Harrison Avenue next to the former Marie Hotel building at 490 Harrison Ave. Commissioner John Kady had asked the DIB to move vendors away from down town bars and restaurants as a condition of him voting to approve beer on the street permits for mer chants. The DIB did not reach a consensus on that request, with three downtown restaurant own ers saying they are not affected by beer sales. Hayden said he was going to make the request for street per mits at the commission meeting on Tuesday with vendors staying where they are. From staff reports PANAMA CITY Cause of death released The Bay County Medical Examiner has released the cause of death of 24-year-old Tavish Greene, who was found in the trunk of his own car after a series of shooting homicides. The Bay County Medical Examiner’s Office said Wednesday the death was caused by multiple gunshot wounds. Greene was found in the trunk of his Chevy Malibu on July 24 behind an abandoned home at 526 E. Eighth Court. Three people have been arrested for conspiring to rob Greene days before his body was discovered. Darryl Mack, 21, and Tyricka Woullard, 20, were extradited Monday from Covington, Ga., on conspiracy to commit armed robbery charges. Dontavis Terrell Thomas, 22, also had been charged with conspiring to rob Greene. None have been charged with Greene’s death. PANAMA CITY Man charged with sexual assault Police have arrested a man who allegedly got a minor drunk before sexually assaulting him, the Panama City Police Department announced Wednesday. Alfred A. Wagner was arrested after the victim’s aunt informed detectives that Wagner, on July 30, had sexually assaulted her nephew on two separate occasions. The Florida Department of Children and Families was notified and conducted an interview of the juvenile, police reported. On the two occasions, the juvenile stated, Wagner gave the child alcohol to the point of intoxication and then he sexually assaulted the victim. Both occurrences happened in Wagner’s home. At the conclusion of the investigation, a warrant was obtained for Wagner and investigators arrested him. Wagner was charged with contributing to the delinquency of a minor and two counts of lewd or lascivious battery, victim 12 to 15 years old. He taken to Bay County Jail. SPRINGFIELD Chief named to human trafficking panel Springfield Police Chief Philip Thorne was one of two people named Wednesday to the Statewide Council on Human Trafficking. Gov.

CHIPLEY Donations accepted for drowning victim Several community members are contributing to the family of a former Chipley High School graduate after the 20-year-old was found drowned in a submerged vehicle earlier this week. Leon County Sheriff’s Office divers found a 2001 Isuzu Rodeo submerged in the Ochlockonee River near Tallahassee Sunday morning with the body of 20-year-old Jordan Rae Nedeau inside. Authorities were allegedly later told one of Nedeau’s Tallahassee Community College classmates was intoxicated when he drove the SUV into the river with Nedeau as a passenger, according to LCSO. Since, a donation chest on the website has accrued more than $7,000 to offset costs incurred by the family from the tragic event. Nedeau was a graduate of CHS, class of 2012. The family will receive friends Friday from 2 to 4 p.m. at Thomasville Road Baptist Church in Tallahassee. A memorial service will follow. BASCOM Man reported missing Jackson County authorities are asking the public for help in finding a missing person.

He is described as a black male, last seen wearing blue jean shorts and a blue and green striped pullover shirt, according to the release. Authorities said Daniels requires medication and he does not have it with him. Anyone with information regarding Daniels is asked to call JCSO at 850-482-9648. Local BRI E FS AP Officer Charles Hunt of the Ocala Police Department looks on as the temperature inside a patrol car climbs above 110 degrees Fahrenheit as shown on a life-meter stick-on thermometer at the Ocala Police Department in Ocala. OCALA (AP) — It’s like putting a baby in an oven. Even though Florida law permits leaving a child in a parked car for up to 15 minutes, an Ocala trauma surgeon said that is “too long” and could lead to a painful and needless death. “Absolutely, 15 minutes is way too long in my opinion. In 10 minutes the inside of a parked car can reach 20 degrees over the outside tem perature, making it near 120 degrees on many of our recent days,” said Dr. Darwin Ang, a trauma surgeon and the medical director of trauma services at the Ocala Regional Medi cal Center, which is part of Ocala Health. “The body temperature of a child from newborn to age 4 years increases three times faster than an adult due to their skin to weight ratio,” Ang said. Florida State Statute 316.6135 states “(no person) responsible for a child younger than 6 years of age shall leave such child unattended or unsupervised in a motor vehicle for a period in excess of 15 minutes; however, no such person shall leave a child unattended for any period of time if the motor vehicle is running or the health of the child is in danger.” Ang described the effects of hyper thermia, or exposure to excessive heat. “There are phases, first including nausea, confusion, dehydration and painful muscle cramps due to loss of salts. At a body temperature of 104 degrees, heat exhaustion and heat stroke is encountered, perspi ration stops, and the body loses its ability to regulate its temperature,” Ang said. “At a body temperature of 107 degrees, cell death begins, then a cardiovascular collapse similar to a heart attack. I have children aged 2, 4 and 6. I can’t imagine it,” Ang said. Ang said a child exposed to exces sive heat should be “immediately moved to a cool area, have their skin moistened, for example with moist rags under the armpits, and be given water” as emergency service organi zations are contacted. Recent cases of children left — in some cases dying — in hot parked cars has focused attention on the issue ahead of National Heatstroke Prevention Day, which is Thursday, as well as the “Where’s Baby?” aware ness campaign recently announced by the U.S. Department of Trans portation’s National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

MIAMI (AP) — Patient advocates say some insurance companies are making HIV and AIDS drugs unaf fordable in plans issued through the Affordable Care Act by shifting much of the cost to customers. While the issue applies broadly to all patients with chronic illnesses that require expensive medication, HIV and AIDS advocates say they were the first to file a formal complaint with the government about pricing. Under President Obama’s health law, insurance companies are forbid den from turning away consumers with pre-existing conditions. But advocacy groups allege insur ance companies are discouraging HIV and AIDS patients, who are expen sive to cover, by requiring them to pay a percentage of costly medications instead of a flat co-pay, essentially pric ing the medications out of reach. Several insurance companies are also impeding access to services by requiring re-authorization for drugs consumers have been taking for years or making the claims process difficult, says Carl Schmid, deputy executive director of The AIDS Institute. The group filed a complaint with U.S. Health and Human Services offi cials this summer against four Florida insurance companies, and advocates in other states are considering similar action. The complaint filed with federal health officials alleges Humana, Cov entryOne, Cigna and Preferred Medi cal are violating the federal health law by discouraging consumers with HIV and AIDS from choosing those plans because they wouldn’t be able to afford the high co-insurance rates. Georgia advocates are planning to file a similar complaint with federal officials, said Dr. Melanie Thompson, who has several patients unable to afford the medicines under their new insurance plans. Advocacy groups say they are finding similar problems with some exchange plans in Ohio, Califor nia and Illinois. HHS said it’s reviewing the com plaint in Florida but declined further comment. Advocates say intervention by the federal government would also benefit patients who take expensive medications for chronic conditions such as blood cancer and rheumatoid arthritis. The problem arises from how drugs are priced by insurance companies. For the bulk of drugs, consumers pay just a fixed amount, usually about $30 to $45 a prescription. However, insurance companies have taken some of the most expen sive drugs and put them in a special category, where they require patients to pay as much as 50 percent of the total cost. While insurance companies face high costs in treating many cancer and hepatitis patients, the costs are more acute when a patient has a chronic, incurable health issue — for example HIV or multiple sclerosis — since they will have to take the expensive medi cations for the rest of their lives. “By putting the drugs that are rec ommended up on the highest tiers in an unaffordable place they are in essence discriminating against people with HIV because these are the life saving drugs they require to survive,” Thompson said. \Advocates are quick to point out that many of the seriously ill patients now enrolled in ACA plans had trouble finding insurance before the law was passed, but say something needs to be done about the drug costs. An HIV patient in north Georgia who asked not to be named bought a silver Kaiser Permanente plan for himself and his partner, paying a roughly $110 monthly premium, with the government paying a $900 subsidy. Doctor visits and blood pressure medi cines fell under cheap co-pays, but he was shocked to find the plan required him to pay half the cost of his HIV medicine — about $1,800 a month for his share, he said. The patient, who had been unin sured for nearly two decades before enrolling through the ACA, asked not to be identified because he works in health care and is worried about the stigma of HIV. For now he’s getting his medication for free from an advocacy group, but the 49-year-old patient says he doesn’t know what he’ll do when that ends. Kaiser Permanente Georgia said in a statement that it provides financial grants to organizations like one help ing the patient and understands “the burden that high-priced pharmaceuti cals can place on patients.” The Affordable Care Act bans insurers from charging an individual more than $6,350 in out-of pocket costs a year and no more than $12,700 for a family policy. But patient advocates warn those with serious illnesses could pay their entire out-of-pocket cap before their insurance kicks in any money. Money paid toward premiums doesn’t count toward the caps. In Ohio, Anthem Blue Cross Blue Shield, Coventry, Humana and Medi cal Mutual put every HIV drug, includ ing generics, on the highest tiers or categorized them as specialty drugs that require consumers to pay 20 to 50 percent co-insurance after satisfy ing deductibles, according to the Aids Drug Assistance Programs in Ohio. The group says a patient on a com mon drug regimen of Truvada and Isentress could still pay $1,200 a month on Humana’s plan after meeting a $6,000 deductible. The AIDS Foundation of Chicago said HIV medications are likely unaf fordable in plans offered by Aetna, Cov entry, Health Alliance, and Humana. In most cases, medications were placed on the highest tier, requiring co-insurance as high as 50 percent, which could cost a patient more than $1,100 a month for Atripla, a common, three-drug regimen. The organization complained about the situation in a letter to state insur ance officials. The state responded last month with a bulletin notifying insurers that plans can be considered discrimina tory if they impose unreasonable pre scription restrictions or redundantly require pre-authorization for refills without justification. White House: Premiums will fall for many in Florida FORT LAUDERDALE (AP) — The majority of Floridians who purchased health plans through the Affordable Care Act will actually see their out-ofpocket costs decrease, especially in big cities such as Miami and Orlando, according to senior White House officials. That’s the opposite of what state offi cials, under Republican Gov. Rick Scott, said earlier this week. Analyzing rates for the 2015 health plans sold through President Barack Obama’s law can be tricky and politicians on both sides are eager to use the figures as evidence of the law’s success or failure. Both the state and federal officials said Wednesday that the other’s figures were misleading. An estimated 75 per cent of Floridians live in areas where the secondlowest cost silver premium will actually decline, Tasha Bradley, a spokeswoman for the federal Depart ment of Health and Human Services told The Associ ated Press. Their analysis shows the cost of that silver plan will decrease by 6 per cent in Miami, 12 percent in Orlando and 17 percent in West Palm Beach. Federal health officials only based their analysis on the cost of second-low est priced silver plan. That’s because 73 per cent of the nearly 1 million plans purchased in Florida this past year were silver plans. It’s also the most com mon plan nationwide because the subsidy tax credit is based on the cost of second-lowest priced silver plan.The state said Monday that consumers could expect an average premium increase of 13 percent in 2015. State officials calcu lated the average of premi ums for all plans, bronze, silver, gold and platinum to arrive at the figure, giv ing more weight to insur ance companies with more enrollees and higher popu lation areas. “Any assertion that overall rates are going down in Florida is false,” according to a statement from Florida’s Office of AP Dr. Melanie Thompson examines HIV patient Brian Albright in her office in Atlanta. Albright, who was diagnosed with HIV in 1987, estimates his prescription drugs cost $30,000 a year. AIDS patients fear bias in ACA exchange


DIVERSIONS A ces On BRIDGE: B obby W olff SU DO KU History TODAY Y our HOROS C OPE: Holiday Mathis Page B6 | The News Herald | Thursday, August 7, 2014 DIVERSIONS A ces On BRIDGE: B obby W olff Friendship issues big challenge for readers DEAR READERS: Your questions and dilemmas never take a holiday, but occasionally I must. This week’s “best of” columns come from deep within the Ask Amy vault. Like a soft-serve twisty cone, they are sometimes even more enjoyable as a second helping. DEAR AMY: I have a problem. My best friend cuts herself. I tried to tell myself it was not that bad, until I saw the horrible gashes on her arms. Now they’re half-healed, but they are most definitely not caused by her cat, which is what she says they are caused by. It is obvious to me that she is in a state of depression, but I want her to stop hurting herself. Please help. AF RA I D FO R FR I E N D DEAR A F RA I D: You’re a good friend. Friends like you notice when things aren’t right and don’t always accept a pal’s explanations when you know she needs help. Your instincts sound right on. “Cutting” is a dangerous form of self-injury and is often an outward symptom of depression and/or anxiety. People who cut say that injuring themselves sometimes feels like a relief, like a release valve. Sometimes they say it makes them feel more “alive.” Unfortunately, cutting usually gets worse. The person injuring herself usually doesn’t get better without help. Sometimes, medication relieves some of the pressure to cut; a good counselor will provide care and understanding. Please let your friend know that you’re aware of what she’s doing and say you want to help her. You should speak with an adult you trust who could assist your friend in getting help. (May 2004) DEAR AMY: I have a longtime friend who is driving me nuts. When she enters a room, within five minutes she is talking about her two sons: how wonderful they are, what they did in the last year, about their in-laws. We are so bored to tears by her long dissertations; she never knows when to quit. She has become so obnoxious. What can we do? FR I E N DS IN VI R GINI A DEAR V I R GINI A: You might make some headway by speaking with her, alone, not with your other pals. Please keep in mind that boring people rarely change; that’s the nature of being a bore. Your being tolerant and then skillfully changing the subject when you can’t bear it anymore might be the best you can hope for. (July 2004) DEAR AMY: Can a lady have a male best friend without complications if both couples are married and spouses are jealous types? I have had a male best pal for many years, but there is always that underlying conflict, no matter what our spouses say openly. If he were a she, nothing would be said. SUZ Y DEAR S UZ Y: The answer to your question is no. You can’t have a male best friend without complications if your husband is the jealous type. But sometimes husbands feel jealous for a good reason. (September 2004) DEAR AMY: Why is it that after a guy breaks up with you, and you agree to be friends, you start hanging out less and less? I’ve become very confused because my ex thinks I still love him, and I don’t. G I R L IN I LLINOI S DEAR GI R L : Welcome to the world, honey. You can’t make people like you, you can’t make people stay with you, and after they break up with you, things don’t go back to the way it “used to be.” Isn’t that some system?

Try not to give them too much focus and definitely don’t be one yourself. History TODAY Today is Thursday, Aug. 7, the 219th day of 2014. There are 146 days left in the year. Highlight in history On August 7, 1964, Congress passed the Gulf of Tonkin resolution, giving President Lyndon B. Johnson broad powers in dealing with reported North Vietnamese attacks on U.S. forces. On this date 1789 — The U.S. War Department was established by Congress. 1882 — The famous feud between the Hatfields of West Virginia and the McCoys of Kentucky erupted into fullscale violence. 1942 — U.S. and other allied forces landed at Guadalcanal, marking the start of the first major allied offensive in the Pacific during World War II. 1963 — First lady Jacqueline Kennedy gave birth to a boy, Patrick Bouvier Kennedy, who died two days later of respiratory distress syndrome. 1974 — French stuntman Philippe Petit repeatedly walked a tightrope strung between the twin towers of New York’s World Trade Center. 1989 — A plane carrying U.S. Rep. Mickey Leland, D-Texas, and 14 others disappeared over Ethiopia.

RHE A LYNN SMI T H 17, Lynn Haven Soderbergh, Owen team for medical drama BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. (AP) — No rubber gloves. No high-tech instru ments. No medical-malpractice lawyers. Welcome to the Knickerbocker Hos pital, aka the Knick, a bloody citadel of healing in circa-1900 Manhattan where great strides are made (soon, an X-ray machine!) even as its routine procedures seem borrowed from the butcher shop and its mortality rate isn’t much better. This is the setting for “The Knick,” premiering Friday at 9 p.m. CDT on Cinemax. The 10-episode season is directed throughout by Oscarand Emmy-win ning Steven Soderbergh, and stars Clive Owen as the hospital’s worldclass, hard-driving (and, by the way, drug-abusing) chief surgeon. Beautifully filmed in New York City, “The Knick” captures a distant era with remarkable fidelity, as if the film makers had transported themselves back in time and then let the cameras roll. And despite the distance spanned, much about “The Knick” feels com fortably familiar — though only up to a point, as the premiere quickly demonstrates. “Medical dramas tend to be about people coming in very sick and doc tors working hard to heal them,” says Owen. “But with our pilot script, we’re just four pages in” — he snaps his fingers — “and we’ve already lost a pregnant woman and her baby. Welcome to 1900! This is startlingly different from other medical shows in its casual brutality.” If “The Knick” evokes a more primi tive “St. Elsewhere” or less frantic “ER,” Owen’s Dr. John Thackery might suggest the titular hero of “House.” Thackery is “brilliant, he’s abrasive, he’s extremely difficult,” says Owen during a recent joint interview with Soderbergh, who adds, “He’s very direct. I like that!” So is Soderbergh, especially when voicing his dos and don’ts of directing actors (who in “The Knick” also include Andre Holland, Jeremy Bobb, Juliet Rylance, Eve Hewson and Michael Angarano). A major do, he advises: Maintain a light touch. “I don’t want to get in the actor’s head,” says Soderbergh. “If he’s thinking instead of being, that isn’t good. I like to keep whatever instruction I have pretty technical,” which is to say, largely focused on the blocking. On “The Knick,” Soderbergh’s cam era (he’s the cinematographer, too) is nimble and ever-attentive, sometimes sticking with the scene in a single shot as much as three minutes long, staged as theater-in-the-round with the cam era covering the action, rather than rallying the actors to its needs. “If the camera’s gonna move,” says Soderbergh, “it’s moving because the actors are moving, not ‘cause I want it to move.” AP This image released by Cinemax shows Clive Owen, center, and Eric Johnson in a scene from “The Knick,” a 10-episode hospital drama premiering Friday on Cinemax.

The chaser: Rickie Fowler is the only player with top-5 finishes in every major this year — tie for fifth at the Mas ters and runner-up at the U.S. Open and British Open. TV: Noon-6 p.m., today, TNT The Associated Press The Southeastern Confer ence finally got knocked off the mountaintop. Now, Alabama and other aspir ing national contenders are trying to begin the climb back in a league that suddenly has a fresh feel. Gone are marquee names like Jadeveon Clowney and Johnny Manziel and Heisman Trophy finalists AJ McCarron and Tre Mason. Presumed top contenders like Alabama, South Carolina, Georgia and LSU are breaking in new quarterbacks. Those fac tors — and the wild, unpredictable 2013 season — are giving other teams around the league hope. After all, who could have pre dicted Missouri and Auburn’s surprising runs to division titles, Florida’s injury-fueled struggles or the SEC West and Iron Bowl being settled on Auburn’s finalplay, 109-yard return of a missed field goal? “Auburn came back and was competing for a national cham pionship,” Florida cornerback Vernon Hargreaves III said. “You never know who’s going to be the best, and that’s why the SEC is the best conference in college football.” But the best team belonged to Florida State, which ended the SEC’s seven-year national title streak with a 34-31 win over Auburn at the Rose Bowl. For all the SEC’s player turn over, there is stability on the sidelines. The only new coach is Vanderbilt’s Derek Mason. Still, maybe it’s the year for Mississippi to break through or Florida to make a dramatic rebound like Auburn did a year ago after an 0-8 SEC season. Or maybe Alabama, with three national titles in five seasons, returns to the top. It certainly wouldn’t be a big surprise for Steve Spurrier to lead South Carolina to its first SEC championship.

(AP) — Barely able to tie his shoes three days ago, Tiger Woods is ready to tee it up in the PGA Championship. Woods caused the biggest sen sation of the week Wednesday afternoon simply by driving his silver SUV into the parking lot at Valhalla. He has never arrived so late for a major championship and had so little time to prepare — just nine holes at Valhalla, which he had not seen since win ning the PGA Championship in 2000. But at least he’s playing. That much was in doubt Sun day when he withdrew from the final round of the Bridgestone Invitational because of back pain that made it a chore to switch out of his golf shoes. Woods said he suffered a pinched nerve, but that it was not at all related to back surgery he had March 31 that kept him out of golf for three months. He said his trainer adjusted the area above the sacrum. “Once he put it back in, the spasms went away,” he said. “And from there, I started getting some range of motion.” The latest injury occurred when Woods tried to play a shot from just above a deep bunker on the second hole at Firestone, and his momentum caused him to land hard in the sand. He kept playing, and hit some horrific shots before deciding to withdraw after a tee shot on the ninth hole. That was only his third tourna ment since his return from sur gery, leading to concern that he might be done for the year. “It was a different pain than what I had been experiencing,” Woods said. “So I knew it wasn’t the site of the surgery. It was dif ferent and obviously it just the sacrum.” His arrival put some life into what had been an ordinary week. Dozens of cameras captured Woods putting on his shoes with ease at his car. He got a big cheer just walking onto the practice range and the crowd was six-deep down the first hole, about like it GL ANCE AP Tiger Woods hits out of the bunker on the seventh hole Wednesday during a practice round for the PGA Championship. Broncos host Super rematch with Seahawks DENVER (AP) — When the Seattle Seahawks visit the Bron cos for a preseason kickoff tonight, they will see a Denver defense that was reshaped with them in mind — along with a team still smarting over all that trash talk during and after the Super Bowl. The Broncos responded to that 43-8 shellacking by adding thump ers DeMarcus Ware, T.J. Ward and Aqib Talib in free agency. Bruised leg permitting, Ware will make a cameo appearance in what promises to be an intense start to the preseason at Sports Authority Field before the starters give way to backups for the bulk of the night. “It’s going to be fun,” Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said. “It’s a great opportunity to play an incredible football team. They’re a tremendous team and they’ve got some great additions to their team I know they’re really excited about seeing. We’re anxious to see what they look like too, knowing that we’re going to see them in the season.” The teams meet up Sept. 21 at Seattle. “So it’s a really cool matchup,” Carroll said. “I’m sure there’s a lot of people who will have a lot of interest in this thing.” Count Broncos defensive tackle Terrance Knighton first among them. He wasn’t happy with all the trash talk going on during and Tebow embraces T V analyst job, waits on NFL CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — Tim Tebow still wants — and trains for — another NFL opportunity. Still, while the 26-year-old free agent quarterback waits for another chance to play profes sional football, he isn’t about to let a potential dream job pass him by. Tebow is embracing his latest passion: working as a football ana lyst for ESPN’s new SEC Network, which debuts Aug. 14. “I love doing this,” an enthusi astic Tebow told The Associated Press on Wednes day. “I want to do this for a long time. I love talking football and I love being around it.” The only thing he doesn’t like is “having to wear this” suit, Tebow said, laughing and tugging at his gray jacket coat. “I’d rather be in shorts.” Or pads. Tebow said his agent has fielded some calls from interested NFL teams — he declined to name which teams — but added no deal is imminent.

SPORT S Page C2 | The News Herald | Thursday, August 7, 2014 I know there are those who remember when the Queen Fleet ran out of St. Andrew Marina. Over time, the marina went from a pier to the concrete marina it is today. In the 1960s someone discovered a new virgin area that held giant snapper that had never been fished by head boats. This area was southwest of Cape San Blas, about a six-hour run if the Gulf was calm. Back then, the Queen Fleet fishermen used electric motors attached to 6/0 Penn reels with 80-pound test line. This was virgin fishing grounds and every captain always was watching his sounding machines for new bottom that had never been fished. It was sort of like today when people find a wreck or piece of bottom that has not been fished for several years and holds a gold mine of red snapper. Tyndall Air Force was forever losing drones in this area, and to find a drone was to find a gold mine. Even though it was very small compared to a sunken boat, it would hold a lot of red snapper and gag grouper. Eventually most of the bigger snapper and grouper were caught and the fad of going to the Cape ran out. We were stuck again with the same old snapper spots we had been fishing since the 1940s and 1950s and they weren’t much to write home about. In the 1970s we started hearing about government agencies such as the Gulf Council, the Gulf of Mexico Fishing Management Council. At first we thought very little about these agencies because the Gulf was so large and saltwater fishermen had never been regulated in any way. That soon changed. It was sort of like a group of people holding someone down and dressing them in the clothes they wanted them to wear. First came the socks, then the shirt and tie. The same with the king mackerel laws and then a limit on snapper and then a size limit on snapper and grouper. It was so gradual we didn’t realize we were being treated to a new way of fishing. If all of this had been done overnight there would have been a revolt, but it was a drawn-out process. The next thing we knew we were fully dressed in a new set of clothes not of our choosing. Some fishermen will tell you the method of changing the way we fish was heavy handed, and some will tell you it turned out to be the best thing that could ever have happened to fish populations. Some fishermen claim we now have more snapper than we ever have had. Others argue, “How do you know that? You weren’t here 50 years ago.” No matter who wins the fish population debate the fact is the federal government allowed only nine days of fishing in federal waters this year and that was with a federal fish permit if you owned a head boat or charter boat. That isn’t much time to make a living. Some years ago we ran 100 days in the summer and whatever business that could be scraped together in the fall and winter. The next thing the feds are going to say to the forhire boats is that they are killing too many snapper and grouper while trying to catch whatever is left to catch. They are going to have to stop fishing if there is no snapper or grouper season in. Let’s think back to the 1960s with the extra fast Queen Fleet boats and the electric reels. They fished many hours from Panama City and they fished in very deep water. Why couldn’t we go back to that? I was watching a fishing show out of Key West onboard a head boat called Yankee Captain. It was taking fishermen out to 300 and 400 feet of water with electric reels and the new braid line which cuts down on drag in a swift current with 5to 10-pound lead — whatever it took to reach the bottom. The real deal here was they weren’t catching red snapper that they would have had to release or gag grouper that they would have had to do the same with. They were catching snowy grouper and tile fish. The same tile fish a person could go down to Buddy Gandy’s Seafood Market and buy off the showcase. I don’t think there is a limit on snowy grouper and I’m sure there isn’t a limit on tile fish. Heck, most fishermen will fish most of their lives and never see a tile fish because they live in such deep water. Using a fast boat like the ones in the Queen Fleet a fisherman could leave Panama City at 2 a.m. and be fishing in 400 to 500 feet of water by 9 a.m., spend the night and fish the next morning and be back in time to have dinner with the family. There are other fish besides those two that can be caught in deep water such as queen snapper and silky snapper. I’m positive there is someone who will come up with 27 reasons why this can’t be done, but it only takes one boat captain who can make it work and they are going to be in business for the rest of their lives. The handwriting is on the wall. If you snapper or grouper fish for a living your future is gloomy. It’s time to try something else. After all, how many horse carriage businesses do you see in this area? Outdoors documentary Some months back I got the chance to watch a very interesting outdoor show about a group of people who traveled from the Everglades all the way up the state to the Okefenokee Swamp on the Georgia state line. They weren’t staying in motels or riding automobiles. They did it on foot. They had to cross highways along the way and ford rivers, and camped out on the ground while facing some of the obstacles early travelers had to face. They named this path they took The Florida Wildlife Corridor, Expedition: Everglades to Okefenokee. A man named Elam Stoltzfus documented the trip on film. You will be able to watch the documentary at the Martin Theatre in downtown Panama City Friday evening at 6 p.m. These explorers in 2012 traveled 1,000 miles in 100 days. The same man is planning a trip from Orlando to Pensacola in the near future and will be at the Martin Theater for a question-and-answer session after the show. This isn’t just for hunters or fishermen. We have plenty of outdoorsmen in the Panhandle who never have picked up a gun or rod and reel, but enjoy the outdoors.

(AP) — Rickie Fowler first began working with Butch Har mon last year at the British Open, not knowing whether it would take two months or two years to see some results. The turnaround was quicker than he imagined. Despite a rugged start to the season, Fowler has really stood out in the majors. He is the only player with top-five finishes in each of them this year. “Butch has been a big influence this year ... with what we’ve done with the golf swing to make it more efficient and more repetitive and a little less dependent on timing,” Fowler said. That wasn’t the only change he made this year. Fowler said one reason for his strong performance in the majors was prepar ing better with caddie Joe Skovron, and developing a plan with Harmon on how to be ready for the four big gest events of the year. For the first time, Fowler has played every tournament the week before a major. He finished sixth in the Shell Houston Open. He tied for 13th in the St. Jude Classic. And he tied for eighth in the Scottish Open. He tied for eighth last week at the Bridgestone Invi tational, an event he typi cally plays before the PGA Championship. Fowler said he makes a checklist at those events to make sure his game is in shape. “If there was any low point, it gave me a chance to work on that in compe tition and work things out and get ready for that fol lowing week,” Fowler said. “So that’s probably been the biggest thing, just the process and the prep work along with Butch.” European picks: Bernhard Langer, who turns 57 at the end of the month, already has four wins on the Champions Tour including two majors. He won the Senior British Open in a runaway in Wales, stirring discussion about whether he could be a captain’s pick for the Ryder Cup. European captain Paul McGinley shot down that notion Wednesday. “Tremendous guy, huge heart as we all know,” McGinley said. “It’s very hard for me to evaluate Bernhard for two reasons.” The first is that McGinley has plenty of players already under consideration a list that could include Lee Westwood and Luke Donald who are outside the standings. Secondly, he doesn’t have any world ranking events on which to accurately judge Langer. He is No. 462 in the world. The only regular event the German played this year was the Masters, where he finished eight shots behind in a tie for eighth. “So it’s very hard for me to evaluate Bernhard where he is vis-a-vis the rest of the players,” he said. “As a result, I’ll almost cer tainly ... I’ll never say never, but it’s 99.9 percent sure that my picks will come from the guys who are on the periphery of the team and chasing at the moment.” Then there’s the case of Ian Poulter, Europe’s stalwart the last few teams who nearly singlehandedly led the comeback win at Medinah in 2012. Poulter isn’t having his best year, but it might be more shock ing if McGinley left Poulter off the team than if Tom Watson didn’t pick Tiger Woods. As Graeme McDowell said last week, “There are two picks and Poults.” McGinley wouldn’t go that far — but he was close. “With his pedigree and his background, of course he has got a great chance of being one, but he needs to keep showing form just like all the rest of the guys do,” he said. “I need to see Ian Poulter play well, not just this week but see him play well in the FedEx series, too. He’s very close to the team. He’s one decent performance away from being automatic on the team. He’s not a huge worry for me because his form has been quite good and he’s amassed a huge amount of points.” Good manners: Rickie Fowler learned at an early age from his parents and grandpar ents how to behave on the golf course and how to respect oth ers. For all his flash, one under appreciated aspect of the young American is how well he behaves toward everyone from players to the fans. “One of the main rules with my mom was if I broke a club, she was going to take it and I wouldn’t get it back,” he said. “So I made sure I kept all my clubs.” He’s never thrown a club? Well, he tried recently. And he’s apparently not very good at it. Fowler said he was goof ing around at home in Florida recently and tried to throw a club after a poor shot. “I just felt like it,” he said. “It kind of showed that I haven’t thrown a golf club very much because I threw it with my glove still on my hand, and when you do that, it doesn’t release properly.” Was he angry? Not really. It just seemed like a good time to see what it was like to heave one. It went into a palmetto bush and he had to dig it out. Fowler likes playing week before majors R ICKIE F O WLER was for the Ryder Cup at Valhalla six years ago. In the nine holes he played with Steve Stricker, Davis Love III and Harris English, Woods looked the same as he did last week. He drilled his driver down the first fairway. He badly pulled his tee shot on the third hole. It was a mixture of good and bad, about what can be expected from someone who has played only nine rounds in the last five months. “Nothing great,” Woods said. “It’s only Wednesday.” Woods tees off today alongside Phil Mickelson and Padraig Harrington. He simply said, “Yes,” when asked if he expected to win, which seemed to be a tall order con sidering his return from surgery. Woods missed the cut by four shots at the Quicken Loans National, had his worst 72-hole finish in a major at the British Open and was in the middle of the pack at Firestone when he withdrew. Barring a victory, this likely will be his last tournament for at least six weeks. Woods is not eligible for the FedEx Cup playoffs, and he hasn’t given U.S. captain Tom Watson much reason to pick him for the Ryder Cup. Woods said he would have to “play well” to give reason for Watson to take him. Watson has said he wanted Woods on the team if he was healthy and playing well. About the time Woods arrived at the course, Watson was successfully dodging questions about his chances of making the team. “It’s speculation what’s going to happen,” Watson said. “I can’t tell you what’s going to happen with Tiger.” PGA from page C1 Most NFL teams are two weeks into training camp, so Tebow knows he’s missing valuable time. Over the past several months he’s been trying to bal ance learning his new job and staying in peak physical condition in case that call comes. He works out five to six times per week in Los Angeles, Arizona or Florida depending on his busy travel schedule. “I’m kind of a vagabond these days,” he said. Carolina Panthers coach Ron Rivera said it surprises him Tebow hasn’t landed on an NFL roster since the New England Patriots cut him Aug. 31, 2013. “I’m a big fan of his and he knows it. He has always given me fits when I’ve had to coach against him,” Rivera said of Tebow, who is 8-6 as an NFL starter. “He’s a play maker and he plays a different kind of football. All the guy has ever done is win. ... He’s one of those guys if you were struggling at quarterback, hey, why wouldn’t you give him a shot?” But the Panthers — and 31 others teams — haven’t given Tebow a shot. Tebow said he’s not exactly sure why. But his new bosses at ESPN know if that call from the NFL does come, he’ll likely need to leave without much notice. Justin Connolly, ESPN’s senior vice president in charge of programming for college networks, said that’s fine with him. Connolly pointed out that Tebow did well as ana lyst during the national championship game and that when the network hired Tebow — who has more than 2.5 million Twitter followers — it saw unprecedented social activity.

Page C4 | The News Herald | Thursday, August 7, 2014 three straight 11-2 records and are coming off a No. 4 final ranking. “Nobody picked Missouri and Auburn to win the divi sions last year,” Spurrier said. “That’s why we play the game. We don’t know who’s going to win ’em.” Here are five things to watch during the upcoming SEC season: Changing QBs: Seven of the top eight passers from last season are gone, including Texas A&M’s Manziel, Alabama’s McCarron and Georgia’s Aaron Murray. Only six teams have returning starters and one of those, Tennes see, carried over the competition into preseason camp. Freshmen are in the mix at Texas A&M, Ken tucky and LSU, and Florida State transfer Jacob Coker is the oddson favorite to win the Crimson Tide’s starting job. Plus, Auburn will start Jeremy Johnson in the opener against Arkansas after Nick Marshall’s offseason citation for marijuana possession. Splashy Hires: Despite the lack of head coaching turnover, Georgia and Alabama made big splashes hiring coordinators. Ala bama landed former Tennessee, Southern California and Oakland Raiders head coach Lane Kiffin to run an offense that’s loaded at running back and wide receiver. Georgia lured Jeremy Pruitt away from national champion Florida State to improve a defense that was middle of the pack. The Bull dogs also have replaced the other three defensive assistants. Florida’s Hopes: Coach Will Muschamp acknowledged at SEC media days that “there will be a lot of chatter about hot seat business” after Florida’s first los ing season since 1979. Chances are there won’t be a repeat of the injury-plagued 2013 season, though. And quarterback Jeff Driskel returns from a broken leg with a new offensive coordinator in Kurt Roper, who came over from Duke. The Gators could be the SEC’s most likely candidate for a big turnaround a la Auburn. Fresh Faces: All those early departures for the NFL gives more freshmen shots at making early impacts. LSU tailback Leonard Fournette was the nation’s con sensus top prospect, and figures to carve a significant role in the backfield. Top quarterback pros pect Kyle Allen could claim Texas A&M’s starting job. At Alabama, Cam Robinson is the front-run ner to start at left tackle and Tony Brown is competing for one of the cornerback spots. Early Showdowns: Open ing week could give a pretty fair idea of where teams stand. Texas A&M and South Carolina get the SEC season started on Aug. 28 in what gives the SEC Network a splashy debut. They’ve never played each other before. Ala bama opens against West Virginia two days later, when Georgia also faces Clemson, LSU plays Wisconsin and Mississippi goes against Boise State. FOOTBALL Oklahoma State expects big things from speedy Hill STILLWATER, Okla. (AP) — Oklahoma State coach Mike Gundy had to go way back to find a Cowboy with speed like Tyreek Hill has shown in practice. After reflecting briefly, he came up with Rafael Denson, who last played for the Cowboys in 1994. Hill was in diapers back then, and many of his teammates hadn’t been born. “The guy that he reminds me of a little bit, but he’s (Hill) much thicker and heavier, would be Rafael Denson,” Gundy said Tuesday after Oklahoma State’s first practice in full pads. “But he’s faster than Rafael Denson. He’s the only guy I can think of that can get in the same category of the type of athlete that Tyreek is at this time.” If Hill becomes as productive as Denson was, the Cowboys have a star on their hands. Denson was Oklahoma State’s leading rusher as a freshman, and he led the Big 8 in yards receiving as a senior. Hill, like Denson, will play run ning back and receiver and return kicks. He will make his Oklahoma State debut Aug. 30 against defend ing national champion Florida State in Arlington, Texas. Hill’s versatility at Garden City Community College was among the qualities that drew Oklahoma State’s attention. He caught 32 passes for 532 yards and six touchdowns and had 101 carries for 659 yards and five scores last year. “He did everything from wild cat to running back to receiver, and he does have some good hands,” receivers coach Jason Ray said. “Obviously, you get bet ter as you catch the ball more at practice, and we catch a lot more balls at receiver than he would at running back, but he does pos sess some route running ability. He’s athletic enough to where he can stick his foot in the ground, change direction and run the routes that we run.” After enrolling at Oklahoma State in January and joining the track team, Hill won the 200 meters and placed second in the 60 meters at the Big 12 Indoor Track and Field Championship in the spring. Now, he’s the pre season Big 12 Newcomer of the Year. “Obviously, there is a lot of excitement about Tyreek with his speed,” running backs coach Jemal Singleton said. “He has a speed not many people get the chance to see, so he can definitely run. We’ll see what he does on Saturdays when it matters, but he’s done a great job so far.” Gundy wants to give Hill at least 15 touches a game. Before that can happen, Hill needs to learn the nuances of the college game. The coaching staff said Hill is improving in that regard because of his humility, good atti tude and work ethic. “He’s doing a great job and picking up the offense well,” offen sive coordinator Mike Yurcich said. “There’s some little things we need to get ironed out but Tyreek’s doing fine and progress ing well.” Oklahoma State running back Desmond Roland is impressed. “It looks like he never gets tired,” Roland said. “That’s that Olympic track conditioning he’s in. His legs keep going and going. I can’t wait to see him in game time.” Roland rushed for 811 yards and 13 touchdowns and caught nine passes for 83 yards as a junior last season. With a weapon like Hill on the field, and possibly in the backfield with him, Roland sees the poten tial for more. “The defense will never know who’s going to get the ball,” Roland said. “We both can make big plays. When that first game comes, we’re going to see what can happen.” Freshman Tyreek Hill will make his Oklahoma State debut Aug. 30 against defending national champion Florida State in Arlington, Texas. Hill will play running back and receiver and return kicks for the Cowboys. NFL BRIEFS F alcons’ Jones cautious in comeback FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. — Atlanta Falcons receiver Julio Jones said Wednesday he isn’t sure he will play in Friday night’s preseason opener against the Miami Dolphins even though he feels good about his recovery from a broken foot. The Falcons have limited Jones’ work during training camp, holding him out every other day. He participated in Wednesday’s practice in full pads. “Julio has looked fantastic,” coach Mike Smith said. “We’ve got him on the prescription of a set number of plays every other day. We said we’d do that for at least the first two weeks of training camp and then we would make the determination about whether we would change it.” Jones said he must be cautious in his comeback though fans are eager to see him back on the field in a game. Steelers QB Jones trying to settle in LATROBE, Pa. — Landry Jones can do the math. He knows his immediate — and barring disaster, long-term — future with the Pittsburgh Steelers will consist of him watching from the sideline on Sundays as Ben Roethlisberger goes to work. Jones gets it. He totally does. Roethlisberger has the experience and the talent to go with his pair of Super Bowl rings and at age 32 is still a half-decade away from even pondering retirement. If Jones is going to become a starter in the NFL one day, he’s aware it will almost certainly have to be somewhere else. And while the former Oklahoma star is doing what he can to push those thoughts out of his mind and focus on gaining further command of an offense he may never actually run, the realist in him knows what he’s up against. “Sure I would love to play, but as far as right now and the situation I’m in, is it likely? No,” Jones said Wednesday. “But am I just going to pigeon-hole myself? Am I just going to be a backup? Am I going to be a thirdstring guy? No. I want to start. I want to play in this league and I have aspirations for myself and where I want my career to go. But as far as right now, it’s tough not playing, it’s tough not getting exactly what you want.” Hoyer, not Manziel, starting opener BEREA, Ohio — Johnny Manziel will start Cleveland’s exhibition opener on the sideline. Browns coach Mike Pettine chose Brian Hoyer as the starting quarterback for Saturday’s game in Detroit, giving the veteran the first chance to impress before Manziel takes the field. Pettine said the decision to start Hoyer over Manziel was based on the veteran’s performance so far in training camp. “That was his job,” Pettine said. “He was the one coming into it. We did want to mix the groups up coming into it, as we did, but he’s done nothing to have that taken away from him, so he’ll be out there with the starters.” Cowboys, Chargers backup Q B s to be busy SAN DIEGO — Like backup quarterbacks? Then the Dallas Cowboys-San Diego Chargers exhibition opener tonight is one to watch. With Tony Romo sitting out to rest his surgically repaired back, Brandon Weeden will get the start for the Cowboys. Philip Rivers likely will take a seat after the opening series, allowing Kellen Clemens to make his Chargers debut after Charlie Whitehurst took his clipboard and signed with Tennessee. Weeden got all the first-team reps during offseason workouts and more first-team work in training camp with Romo essentially sitting out every third practice. Cardinals’ B allard announces retirement GLENDALE, Ariz. — Arizona Cardinals tight end Jake Ballard announced his retirement from the NFL on Wednesday. In a statement on Wednesday, Ballard traced his decision to the severe knee injury he sustained playing for the New York Giants in the 2012 Super Bowl. “My body never felt the same,” he said. “Having a quality of life after football is very important to me and I have witnessed it taken away from others. I will miss the game tremendously, but I am ready for this next chapter in my life.” Ballard was signed by the Giants as an undrafted rookie free agent out of Ohio State in 2010. In the Giants’ 2011 Super Bowl season, he started 13 regular season games, catching 38 passes for 604 yards and four touchdowns. REMAT CH from page C1 after the Super Bowl, includ ing linebacker Bobby Wag ner’s suggestion that the Broncos were intimidated by Seattle’s defense that night in the Meadowlands. “You hear things like we were scared and things like that. As an athlete and a professional ... you take it personal,” Knighton said. “And they’ll hear about it and they’ll feel it when we play them.” Most members of the Broncos and Seahawks don’t put much stock in the state ments that could be made Thursday night, but Knigh ton said that 35-point loss still stings. “Everybody might not say it, but it’s definitely in the back of people’s minds,” he said. During offseason weight training, the Broncos took to hollering, “35!” whenever the grind was wearing on them. “I think the entire team has been motivated,” Peyton Manning said after Denver’s annual summer scrimmage last weekend. “We’re trying to get better, trying to be a better team than we were last year but that started back in April when we got back on the offseason program.” GM John Elway also tinkered with his offense after the Super Bowl, add ing receivers Emmanuel Sanders and Cody Latimer to replace Eric Decker. He wanted more balance, so he juggled his offensive line and replaced Knowshon Moreno with Montee Ball. However, Ball will miss the preseason after undergoing an appen dectomy on Tuesday. That means Ronnie Hillman will get the start as he tries to bounce back from a horrible season that began with his fumble at the goal line last summer in Seattle, a turnover that was returned for a touchdown by the Seahawks. “I have seen great growth” in Hillman, Man ning said. “I think he’s been a different guy in the meet ing rooms with a full offsea son this year and attacking it the way he did. He’s starting to see the benefits of that here on the field. I have seen a drastically improved player.” Hillman slid so far down the depth chart last year that he was a healthy scratch for the Super Bowl. Although Elway said he has yet to watch any of his own Super Bowl blowouts, Broncos offensive coordi nator Adam Gase made his guys sit through it over the summer. Over on the defensive side, Knighton didn’t need any nudging. The game was basically playing on a loop at his house. “Yeah, I watched it a lot. I watched it enough to hate them and you can write that down and do whatever you want,” he said. “And I’m looking forward to playing them again.” AP PREDICTED ORDER OF FINISH EAST — 1.

Arkansas Title game winner: Alabama SEC PREVIEW from page C1 Pac-12 packed with QB talent LOS ANGELES (AP) — Oregon quarterback Marcus Mariota is honored to be considered a strong candidate for the Heisman Trophy, and he would love to lead the Ducks to a national championship this fall. As a Pac-12 quarterback, Mariota realizes his imme diate goals must be a bit smaller. “We’re just trying to win the North first,” Mariota said, referring to the Ducks’ division in the powerful conference. Indeed, the Pac-12 is packed yet again with elite quarterback talent, up-andcoming coaches and inven tive offensive schemes. The West Coast’s power conference was ranked as the nation’s best top-to-bot tom league last year, and it’s even more stacked this fall. “The Pac-12 is better than it’s ever been,” Arizona coach Rich Rodriguez said. “And it’s not going back wards. It’s forcing all of us to keep making sure that we’re pressing the envelope to keep our program up.” Whether it’s perennial power Oregon, two-time champion Stanford, up-andcoming power UCLA or a surprising contender, the Pac-12 is primed to crown a powerful champion. Mariota and UCLA’s Brett Hundley lead a group of returning veteran quar terbacks that might be the most impressive in this conference’s stellar history at the position. The Pac-12 might even have a chance to break the South’s grip on the national title in the new playoff sys tem, but that’s all a post script to what’s certain to be a compelling run to the league title game at Levi’s Stadium in December. Here are things to watch while the Pac-12 prepares for another season: QB Central: The Pac-12 has a whopping 10 returning quar terbacks, and at least seven are among the nation’s best at the position, all short-listed for awards and targeted for NFL shots: Wash ington State’s Connor Halliday, Stanford’s Kevin Hogan, Arizona State’s Taylor Kelly, USC’s Cody Kessler and Oregon State’s Sean Mannion along with Hundley and Mariota, who both delayed their NFL dreams to lead their schools’ pursuit of a national title. Bruising Bruins: During coach Jim Mora’s first two sea sons, UCLA seized Los Angeles supremacy from USC. While the Trojans rebuild, the Bruins are loaded for a run at the league title as the Pac-12 South’s preseason favorites. Hundley’s steady vet eran leadership is the biggest reason, but Mora has a wealth of young talent led by Myles Jack, who starred as a linebacker and a tailback as a freshman. Petersen arrives: When Steve Sarkisian returned home to Southern California, Washington pried coach Chris Petersen out of his comfortable job at power house Boise State. The Huskies are eager to see whether Peters en’s system will succeed at the sport’s highest level. Duck spotlight: After nearly three decades in Eugene, Don Pellum has the unenviable task of succeeding retired Nick Aliotti as Oregon’s defensive coordinator. The Ducks’ former linebackers coach isn’t overhaul ing Aliotti’s schemes, but his big gest task might be slowing down Stanford after two straight losses to the powerful Cardinal.

After finishing the lopsided tiebreaker, Djokovic fist-pumped and yelled at the end of the match that lasted 2 hours, 40 minutes. Andy Murray had little trouble winning his opener, defeating 19-year-old Australian Nick Kyrgios 6-2, 6-2 in the first match of the day on center court. “He outclassed me, he did everything better than me,” said Kyrgios, who upset Rafael Nadal to reach the Wimbledon quarterfinals. Murray will face Richard Gasquet in the next round. Murray could play Djokovic in the quarterfinals. Watson, Wozniacki, Kerber advance in Montreal MONTREAL — British qualifier Heather Watson upset 12th-ranked Dominika Cibulkova 6-2, 6-7 (3), 7-6 (5) in the second round of the Rogers Cup. Watson let a 5-2 lead slip away in the third set before rallying. The 22-year-old will face No. 11 Victoria Azarenka in the third round today. No. 13 Caroline Wozniacki cruised past Klara Koukalova 6-1, 6-2 and will meet American qualifier Shelby Rogers in the third round. Rogers had upset eighth-ranked Canadian Eugenie Bouchard 6-0, 2-6, 6-0 on Tuesday. National Guard to pull out of auto racing CHARLOTTE, N.C. — The National Guard said Wednesday it will end its sponsorship of NASCAR driver Dale Earnhardt Jr. and IndyCar’s Graham Rahal, but it is not clear when that goes into effect. Hendrick Motorsports said in a statement it has a contract through 2015. “We have not been approached by the guard about potential changes and plan to honor our current agreement,” the team said. Bobby Rahal, co-owner of Rahal Letterman Lanigan Racing, said in a statement he learned of the guard’s decision on Wednesday. He called it disappointing news “given the significant incremental brand exposure we have worked to produce for the National Guard in our first season together, including various off-track marketing and advertising programs focused on supporting the mission set forth.” The guard said in a statement posted on its web site it spent $32 million on its NASCAR sponsorship and $12 million on its IndyCar sponsorship this year, and noted that “sports sponsorships have played an important role in helping the guard build strong brand awareness.” Television Boxing 9 p.m. FS1 — Bantamweights, Oscar Cantu (7-0-0) vs. Joseph Rios (13-9-2); junior welterweights, KeAndrae Gibson (10-0-1) vs. Jose Hernandez (14-7-1); junior lightweights, Jerry Belmontes (19-4-0) vs. Abner Cotto (17-2-0), at Corpus Christi, Texas Golf Noon TNT — PGA of America, PGA Championship, rst round, at Louisville, Ky. 2 p.m. GOLF — USGA, U.S. Women’s Amateur Championship, second and third round matches, at Glen Cove, N.Y. 4 p.m. GOLF — LPGA, Meijer Classic, rst round, at Grand Rapids, Mich.

MLB STANDING S, BOXES AND LEADERS Braves lose eighth straight SEATTLE (AP) — The Seattle Mariners handed Atlanta its eighth straight loss, with Dustin Ackley and Logan Morrison hitting home runs in the third inning to beat the Braves 7-3 Wednesday. The Braves were swept at Dodger Stadium and San Diego before losing two straight at Safeco Field. Ackley led off the third with a home run and Morrison added a three-run shot off Julio Teheran (10-8) for a 5-3 lead. Robinson Cano doubled twice and scored two runs for Seattle. Chris Young (10-6) allowed three runs in five innings. He struck out six and reached double-digit wins for the first time since 2006. Five Seattle relievers combined to throw four innings of scoreless relief, allowing just two hits. Rays 7, Athletics 3 OAKLAND, Calif. — Kevin Kiermaier hit a two-run homer to help Jeremy Hellickson end a six-start winless stretch for his first vic tory in 11 months, and the Tampa Bay Rays beat the Oakland Athletics to avoid a sweep. Hellickson (1-1) allowed two hits and one run in seven innings, struck out three and walked none. He hadn’t reached five innings in any of his previous three starts this year or in five outings dating to the end of the 2013 season. Hellickson returned late last month following right elbow surgery in January. The Rays handed reigning AL Pitcher of the Month Sonny Gray (12-5) his second straight defeat following a 5-0 July in which he had a 1.03 ERA. This is the second time Gray has lost consecutive outings in his first full major league season, also to Baltimore and the Yankees on June 7 and 13. Padres 5, Twins 4 MINNEAPOLIS — Center fielder Alexi Amarista made a gamesaving catch in the bottom of the ninth inning and Seth Smith followed with a solo homer in the 10th to lift the San Diego Padres to a victory over the Minnesota Twins. Amarista ran backward on a dead sprint and laid out for a brilliant diving catch of a drive off the bat of Eduardo Escobar to keep the game tied. Smith had two hits and two RBIs. Rangers 3, White Sox 1 CHICAGO — Adam Rosales homered twice in a game for the first time in his career and Nick Tepesch pitched scoreless ball into the sixth inning, leading the Texas Rangers over Chris Sale and the Chicago White Sox. The Rangers, who began the day with baseball’s worst record, have won consecutive games for the first time since June 27-28. They routed the White Sox 16-0 on Tuesday night. Yankees 5, Tigers 1 NEW YORK — Chris Capuano outpitched Justin Verlander while Brian McCann and Chase Headley homered to send the New York Yankees past the Detroit Tigers. The Yankees improved to 2-1 in these three straight games started for Detroit by AL Cy Young Award winners. New York edged Max Scherzer on Monday, then David Price got a no-decision Tuesday in a game the Tigers won in the 12th. Capuano (2-2) gave up an unearned run and five hits in 6 2/3 innings, striking out eight and walking one. The Yankees got the 35-year-old lefty from Colorado last month after he began the season with Boston. Phillies 10, Astros 3 PHILADELPHIA — Chase Utley hit a three-run homer, and Ben Revere had four hits, including a triple, to lead the Philadelphia Phillies to a victory over the Houston Astros. Ryan Howard had two hits and two RBIs with a double for Philadelphia, which had scored just two runs in 35 2/3 innings entering Wednesday. The Phillies topped the Astros 2-1 in 15 innings on Tuesday night. Pirates 7, Marlins 3 PITTSBURGH — Josh Harrison had three hits to extend his hot streak and Jeff Locke overcame a shaky start to pitch seven innings as the Pittsburgh Pirates beat the Miami Marlins. Harrison hit a double and scored twice. He is 20 for 44 during a 10-game hitting streak, with six doubles, one triple and five home runs. Locke (3-3) gave up three runs in the first two innings, and then shut out the Marlins over his last five. He gave up six hits and no walks, and struck out seven, beating Miami for the first time in five starts. Nationals 6, Mets 1 WASHINGTON — Doug Fister took a five-hit shutout into the eighth inning, Adam LaRoche homered twice and Danny Espinosa also connected as the Washington Nationals beat the New York Mets. Fister (11-3) allowed one unearned run and six hits in 7 1/3 innings. He struck out seven and reduced his ERA to 2.49. Reds 8, Indians 3 CINCINNATI — Mat Latos pitched seven shutout innings and chipped in with a hit as the Cincinnati Reds opened a seven-game homestand with a win over the Cleveland Indians. Zack Cozart hit a three-run homer off the left-field foul pole and Kristopher Negron added a two-run shot as the Reds won for the third time in four games. Blue Jays 5, Orioles 1 TORONTO — Drew Hutchison came within one out of his second career complete game, Jose Bautista homered and drove in three runs and the Toronto Blue Jays beat the Baltimore Orioles, snapping a four-game losing streak. Melky Cabrera had three hits as the Blue Jays closed within four games of the AL East-leading Orioles and handed Baltimore its first loss in four games. L OGAN M ORRI S ON MLB R OUNDUP BASEBALL
