By JOHN HENDERSON 522-5108 | @ P C N Hjohn jhenderson@pcnh.com PANAMA CITY BEACH — For years, a vocal group of residents has pleaded with the Panama City Beach City Council to do something to tone down Spring Break. But this year the council took action, adopting a comprehensive plan to take some of the rowdiness out of Spring Break. Officials approved 17 steps in the form of policy changes and ordinances to address the issue. The move came on the heels of an unflattering Fox News report this past Spring Break. The laws regulate a wide range of activities — everything from riding scooters to digging large holes in the sand. The proposals were first recommended by Bay County Sheriff Frank McKeithen and then endorsed by Panama City Beach Police Chief Drew Whitman. Local business owners were critical of some of the new laws, including one that forces all bars to close at 2 a.m. instead of 4 a.m. in March. Despite the many steps that were taken, one recommended by law enforcement wasn’t: a ban on drinking on the beach during March. Councilwoman Josie Strange endorsed that move, and said that without it she doesn’t expect the proposals will do much. “The proposals being put in place are just a Band-Aid,” she said Tuesday. “I think we’ve sent a clear message to the spring breakers of this country that they can come down here and do anything they want to. We’re not stopping anything other than closing bars early.” She said she hopes she is proven wrong. “I hope it’s the cleanest, safest Spring Break we’ve ever had,” she said. A few of the proposals are designed to beef up law enforcement’s presence. One calls for providing additional law enforcement and emergency medical services support during Spring Break. Another calls for adding K-9 units. Four K-9 dogs will be part of the beach patrols this year instead of one last spring. 2014 NO. 1: SPRING BREAK NEWS HERALD TOP 10 OF Because of early deadlines Wednesday, late news and sports stories and lottery results are not in today’s News Herald.

Youngstown mobile home blaze kills 1 By BEN KLEINE 522-5114 | @BenKleinepcnh bkleine@pcnh.com YOUNGSTOWN — Officials have confirmed one fatality from a mobile home fire at 9236 Chevy Lane on Wednesday. Bay County firefighters arrived about 2:20 a.m. A father and son were inside the home, said Ashley Carr, spokeswoman for Florida State Fire Marshal’s Office. The son escaped and attempted to save his father, who was trapped inside. The son was not hurt, but went to the hospital later to be examined, Bay County Battalion Chief Darrel Wise said. Possible causes of the fire include a wood-burning stove and portable heaters. “It was a total loss,” Wise said. Wise said flames were rising above the mobile home when firefighters arrived. He said the fire was difficult to fight because of additions made to the property. Also, the structure was suspended 3 to 4 feet from the ground, which provided ventilation. Firefighters still were on scene about 10 a.m. Carr said the investigation is ongoing but nothing suspicious has been mentioned. The Bay County Property Appraiser’s office lists Arnold Berger as the owner the property. The Bay County Medical Examiner still must confirm the victim’s identity before his name is released. Carr did not know whether the occupants were renters or owners. 3 new laws coming in with 2015 By JIM TURNER N ews S ervice of F lorida Some children could travel with more protection in 2015 as a new law about child car seats takes effect today. Overall, the start of 2015 will be quiet for new laws in Florida. Lawmakers sent 255 bills to Gov. Rick Scott after passage during the 2014 legislative session, but only three take effect today. The majority of the new laws, 158 of them, went into place July 1. Florida residents and businesses, however, will see other changes with the start of the new year. As an example, the state’s minimum wage will increase from $7.93 to $8.05 an hour, thanks to a 2004 constitutional amendment that leads to annual adjustments. Also, employers will see an overall 5.2 percent decrease in workers compensation insurance rates.

SPRING BREAK from Page A1 “I have a lot of hope in our Police Department with all new equipment they have,” Strange said. “But we’re still going to have the crowds, the out-of-towners, the people that can’t get hotel rooms, the people who come and sleep in their cars, which happens every year.” Club owners opposed the ban on beach drinking, but it would have helped their businesses, Strange said. “They would have ultimately been the winners because spring breakers would have been drinking in the clubs,” she said. “I just think that was the answer. We would not be the only coastal Spring Break destination that has done that.” Strange said the beach drinking ban would only have been for 30 days, “and they can drink all they want everywhere else” off the beach. Panama City Beach Mayor Gayle Oberst said Tuesday that the council opted against adopting the ban on beach drinking after listening to business owners and residents. There was the feeling the ban would kill Spring Break, which has an economic benefit to the area. “When we talked to our local residents, they asked: ‘Why would a kid come to the beach if he couldn’t have a beer or couldn’t drink on the sand?’ ” Oberst said. “If they are going to drink, I’d rather they do so down on sand than in a car trying to go up and down Front Beach Road.” She said the new laws are not set in stone. After Spring Break the council, law enforcement and county officials will discuss how they worked and what needs to be changed. She said city officials have taken steps after previous Spring Breaks to address some problems that had arisen. “A year or two ago (law enforcement) came back and said, ‘You guys need to put up no parking signs so the people quit parking in the streets down there.’ We did that and it worked fine,” Oberst said. “I think the only thing we can do is try this and see how it works and make some more adjustments if we need to.” Special events The council recently passed a new ordinance to amend its special events regulations after business owners complained. The exemption eliminated an initial requirement that organizers of free large events install a fence or dual fences that run parallel to the water line. That fencing requirement would have killed the two-day event featuring Luke Bryan at Spinnaker Beach Club, said Sparky Sparkman, owner of the club. Several council members at the November meeting also said they did not want the public to be prevented from walking along the shoreline past a free event. Sparkman told the council that it is trying to eliminate all potential for injuries during Spring Break, which is not going to happen. He said there are inherent risks in life. “I could walk into an 18-wheeler when I walk outside,” he said. He also said the council is having a “kneejerk reaction” to Fox News’ Sean Hannity’s report on Spring Break on Panama City Beach. City Manager Mario Gisbert said Tuesday the goal of the new laws is to have “a safe, productive Spring Break.” He said city officials carefully considered all of the proposals and listened to all sides. “It was a slow, methodical process to make sure we weren’t overdoing anything or underdoing anything,” he said.

By the time you read this, my assumption that 2015 could arrive without me being awake to welcome it was correct. Happy New Year! LOVIN’ the lower gas prices! Tony Bennett, name a hit other than “I left my heart in San Francisco.” He must have something; he sings with Lady GaGa. Busy. Busy. Busy. Been running around like a chicken with no headlights. I’d never own an AK-47, but the thought of my nut job of a neighbor owning one is what scares me. Do not treat your car like a phone booth. Why are we wasting precious time on gay marriage? Spring breakers are coming! Sad state of America when “reality TV” features illegal activity (street outlaws, moonshiners). Any business that moves to Pier Park isn’t interested in my patronage. Good-bye. “Nothing like lying on the warm beach sand with your head next to dog crap!” Why did you lay next to dog crap in the first place? If you lie beside dog crap on the beach, the dog was obviously there first. This gives him certain rights not afforded to you. Stores leaving Panama City Mall for the beach. Come on down, Books-A-Million. The squalling may be appalling, but the editor’s cutting is totally rebutting. No cheating, now. No changing your minds about a New Year’s resolution when the ball is on the way down. You made it. You stick to it. Start the new year with common sense. Where have you been? I’ve been talking common sense all of 2014 and years prior. No change for me. The squalling was not enthralling, either. Oh, oh, oh, yes, I’m the great predictor: Oregon 41-20 OSU upsets Alabama.

NEW L A W S from Page A1 children through age 5 to be placed in car seats or booster seats while riding in vehicles. Currently, children ages 3 and younger are required to ride in the childrestraint devices, while children ages 4 and 5 can use seat belts, according to a House bill analysis. AAA Auto Club supported the change, although the organization recommends booster seats continue to be used until children reach 4 feet, 9 inches tall. “The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends the use of a five-point harness until the child is 40 lbs,” AAA spokeswoman Karen Morgan said in a release. “Age should not be a determining factor.” People charged with violating the law (HB 225) face $60 fines and three points on their driver’s licenses. The law includes exceptions such as when a driver is unpaid and is not a member of a child’s immediate family or when a child is being transported because of a medical emergency. Another new law (SB 404) sets new rules for geologists. The measure includes requirements for registering as what is known as a “geologist in training.” That would include taking part of the exam for licensure as a professional geologist and meeting educational requirements. The third new law (HB 343) involves a $1 surcharge on the use of car-sharing services. That will be instead of the state’s $2-a-day rental-car surcharge. The $1 surcharge will apply when a member of a car-sharing service uses a vehicle for less than 24 hours, according to a House staff analysis. OTHER SPRING BREAK LAWS Other Spring Break-related proposals adopted by the council include: Requiring that any person with an alcoholic beverage have a valid state-issued picture identication card or license. Spending Tourist Development Council money currently spent on College Spring Break to advertise what a person can’t do under the new laws and ordinances. Closing all city-owned parking lots at 5 p.m. every day, but install an exit gate to allow the guests to leave at any time. Prohibiting the digging of any holes on the sandy portion of the beach, which is a safety issue for emergency personnel and people walking on the beach. Council members have said that some of these holes are large enough to hold eight to 10 people and illegal activities and sexual misconduct have occurred in them. Requiring streetside and beachside restrooms in areas with large numbers of visitors. Strengthening scooter regulations, insurance, monitoring and enforcement. The council has adopted an ordinance requiring coverage that amounts to the minimum required by the state on automobiles. The council also is requiring scooter riders to wear safety vests when riding on city streets. A scooter rental business, California Cycles, has sued the city over the ordinance and that case is pending. Working with property owners to better manage beach areas and activities. Working with property owners to better manage guests on properties and in rooms. Allowing only one special event on the sandy portion of the beach per day. No more than six sandy beach events could be held on one day regardless of attendance. The ordinance also requires organizers of special events on the beach with more than 500 people to provide law enforcement, trafc control and emergency medical personnel.

Local & State Thursday, January 1, 2015 | The News Herald | Page A3 Facebook.com/ panamacitynewsherald Twitter: @The_News_Herald www.newsherald.com Commissioner skeptical of LEAD’s effectiveness Director defends coalition, says issue is about violence By BEN KLEINE 522-5114 | @BenKleinepcnh bkleine@pcnh.com PANAMA CITY — A Panama City commissioner has expressed skepticism about the Leadership Empowerment and Authentic Development (LEAD) Coalition, and says opinions about the city’s black community might be misplaced. “People say there’s more of a character deficiency in the black community, and I just don’t buy it,” City Commissioner John Kady said. “We’ve had this problem before and it always comes up with the same solution: We should march in with a group and teach people how to not shoot each other.” LEAD Coalition Director Janice Lucas countered that the issue is not about race, but instead about violence. “The reasons have to do with education, jobs and opportunity. If we don’t assess the situation, don’t study how to make things different, it will get worse,” Lucas said. “Panama City has what I call the trifecta: businesses leaving town, schools receiving D’s and F’s and crime is increasing.” The foundation of the LEAD Coalition was established after a string of nine killings in Panama City, most of which were shootings that occurred in or close to the boundaries of the Glenwood neighborhood. However, Panama City Police Chief Scott Ervin said part of the coalition’s goal will be to educate people to not solve their problem with a gun. “There’s a pervasive culture with the youth that an acceptable way to handle a dispute is through gun violence,” Ervin said. Strategizing Lucas has her first day at the helm of the LEAD Coalition on Monday, and one of her first orders of business is to come up with a strategy. She thinks the first steps will be to establish programs for truant students — some of the suspects in a recent killing were youths who should have been in school — as well as afterschool and summer programs for JOHN K AD Y S C OTT E RVIN J A NI CE L U CAS K E NN E TH BROWN By VALERIE GARMAN 747-5076 | @valeriegarman vgarman@pcnh.com PANAMA CITY BEACH — Visitors to Florida state parks are “cache-ing” in through real-life treasure-hunting missions known as geocaching. “Geocaching is one of the many ways in which people can explore Florida State Parks,” said Florida Park Service Director Donald Forgione. “Geocaching is a great adventure combining technology and the natural resources of Florida.” Through geocaching, participants go on a live, outdoor treasure hunt using GPS-enabled devices to uncover hidden vessels at specific coordinates. Participants can use hand-held GPS devices or a smartphone to track “caches,” which usually are placed in vessels that contain “swag” that participants can claim as a prize and replace with another prize for future finders. In June, the state park system launched “Operation Recreational GeoTour” and has since reached more than 10,000 park visitors through the initiative. Overall, the tour features 70 caches on a tour that spans more than 8,000 acres, 1,600 miles of trails and 100 miles of beach across the Sunshine State. In Northwest Florida, treasure hunters can seek out caches at St. Andrews State Park in Panama City Beach, Topsail Hill Preserve State Park in Santa Rosa Beach and Florida Caverns State Park in Marianna, among others. According to Melissa Shoemaker, park service specialist at St. Andrews State Park, about eight caches have been scattered throughout the park by the Florida Park Service and other people. “There are other people that have geocaches throughout the park, and the park service has also come up with the geocache tour,” Shoemaker said. “It’s a great way to get people outdoors and kind of intermingle with technology.” Treasure hunters who visit 40 or more state parks and participate in the tour also can win a trackable Operation Recreation GeoTour Geocoin. So far, four coins have traveled internationally to countries such as Canada and Brazil, with one making an 11,000-mile journey to Germany from Gamble Plantation Historic State Park in Ellenton. Geocaching opportunities are not limited to the Florida State Park system. At www.geocaching. com, users can register and begin hunting for geocaches in their local area and across the country with a detailed map that shows the location of hidden caches. A map of the Bay County area reveals dozens of geocaches hidden at places ranging from the Coconut Creek Family Fun Park at the beach to “Cove Curve” in Panama City. Wheels for the injured Advanced Fire employees dig deep to provide for soldiers By KELLY HUMPHREY 315-4443 | @Kellyhnwfdn khumphrey@nwfdailynews.com PANAMA CITY BEACH — The employees of Advanced Fire Protection celebrated the company’s 25th anniversary by reaching out to help others. The company recently donated $15,000 to the Independence Fund, a nonprofit that provides assistance to wounded warriors. “We learned about the Independence Fund through Bill O’Reilly, the news personality,” said Dana Sudheimer, Advanced Fire Protection Services’ marketing director. “Our goal was to raise enough money to be able to purchase an all-terrain wheelchair that is customized to meet the needs of a wounded veteran. The chairs can be accessorized to allow the veteran to enjoy outdoor activities such as fishing, hunting and beachcombing.” Employees at the company’s Fort Walton Beach and Panama City Beach offices raised money throughout the year. “We had some people sign up for payroll deduction, which was amazing,” Sudheimer said. “Throughout the year, we did raffles for prizes donated by local businesses.” The company’s 45 workers also found other ways to raise money. “We had change jars in both offices,” Sudheimer said. “The guys would scour the trucks for loose change, and any change I found when I was doing laundry went straight into the jar.” Sudheimer said the company is waiting for the Independence Fund to select a local veteran to benefit from its donation. “Since not all veterans want an all-terrain chair, our donation may end up being spent on two less expensive wheelchairs,” she said. “We are so excited that our staff responded so generously. We celebrated our 25th anniversary with a bang!” PATTI BLAKE | The News Herald Cyclists enjoy a sunset bike ride across the Hathaway Bridge on Tuesday.

Office of Compassionate Use Director Patricia Nelson, who took over the state Department of Health post earlier this month, told an audi ence gathered for a workshop Tues day in Orlando that the rule would require the Legislature’s blessing because costs associated with the new law are growing. To be eligible for one of five state licenses to grow, process and distribute strains of non-euphoric marijuana, nurseries likely will have to make significant investments in “high-ticket” items such as analyti cal equipment, expert consultants, security operations and procuring the $5 million performance bonds required in the law, Nelson said. She told nursery owners, inves tors and lobbyists gathered for the meeting that she needed estimates from them to calculate the antici pated impact of the rule “We have to have that before these rules will be effective. That requires an actual bill. It’s not some thing that can be done by commit tee. That bill has to be passed by both chambers and then signed by the governor,” Nelson said. State Rep. Matt Gaetz, a Fort Wal ton Beach Republican who attended Tuesday’s meeting and who was instrumental in getting the legis lation passed during the 2014 ses sion, said he was unconvinced that the rule would require legislative approval. “We have to create a uniquely Flo ridian solution, and we’ll get there,” Gaetz said. “I put a Jan. 1 deadline into the bill because I’m sensitive to the desperation of vulnerable people who need access to cannabis. But these are complex issues, and at times it’s better to get it right then to just get it done for the sake of get ting it done.” Under the law passed by the Legislature and signed by Gov. Rick Scott, doctors on Jan. 1 were sup posed to begin ordering strains of cannabis that are low in euphoriainducing tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC, and high in cannabadiol, or CBD, for patients who suffer from severe spasms or cancer. But, siding with a group of nurs eries and other businesses that launched a legal challenge, an administrative law judge in Novem ber struck down the Health Depart ment’s first stab at a regulatory structure. That prompted Tuesday’s workshop, the fourth public meet ing on the issue since the law was passed. “I don’t think anyone’s stonewall ing,” Gaetz said. “It’s just not some thing that’s really comparable to the normal administrative rigmarole.” More medical marijuana delays? Special to the News Herald TALLAHASSEE — As 2014 comes to a close, the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services released the top 10 consumer complaints filed for the year. “One of our priorities is to assist consumers in need across Florida,” Commissioner of Agriculture Adam H. Putnam said. “Anyone can call our 1-800-HELP-FLA consumer hotline to file a complaint, to find information about businesses and professionals, and to learn how to protect themselves from fraud and scams.” Consumers filed more than 44,000 complaints with the department’s consumer assistance center in 2014. The top 10 most common complaints from Jan. 1 through Dec. 22 were: 1. Do Not Call – 18,067 2. Fuel/Petroleum – 2,193 3. Cable – 1,921 4. Telemarketing – 1,813 5. Motor Vehicle Sales – 1,697 6. Credit/Banking – 1,659 7. Communications – 1,588 8. Motor Vehicle Repair – 1,488 9. Landlord/Tenant – 1,328 10. Travel/Vacation Plans – 1,271 Complaints about violators of the state’s Do Not Call list continue to be the top consumer issue. However, 2014 saw a 4 percent decrease in Do Not Call complaints. The drop might be attributed to the agency’s increased enforcement efforts over the past two years, which have resulted in the collection of more than $430,000 in administrative fines. In addition, more than $5.3 million was recovered on behalf of Florida consumers in 2014, almost twice as much as was recovered in 2013. In addition to complaints, the department’s consumer assistance center responded to about 200,000 calls, more than 5,000 emails and almost 9,500 online chats from consumers requesting information. The Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services is the state’s clearinghouse for consumer complaints, protection and information. The call center is staffed by trained analysts who can respond to questions about programs and regulations under the department’s purview, provide information on a wide variety of topics or direct callers to the appropriate government agency. Consumers who believe fraud has taken place can contact the department’s consumer protection and information hotline at 1-800-HELP-FLA (435-7352) or, for Spanish speakers, 1-800-FL-AYUDA (352-9832).

The City Commission voted 4-1, with Kady opposed, to approve a payment of $19,000 to the LEAD Coalition. The police department will provide $10,000 and the remaining $9,000 will come from other city funds. The payment is a one-time commitment from the city to cover operating costs, most of which is Lucas’ salary of about $40,000. “Somebody has to spearhead this,” Commissioner Kenneth Brown said. The total operating budget is $64,000. The Bay County Sheriff’s Office and Bay District Schools also are chipping in money. Kady did not have specific suggestions for better ways to spend the money, but still was wary of spending of this type. “Every time, it’s ‘We’re going to build a community center’ or ‘We need a splash pad’ or ‘We need a park,’ ” Kady said. “We’re doing the same thing over and over again.” The LEAD Coalition is made up of representatives from the police and sheriff, the school district and Gulf Coast State College. Lucas thinks a key difference between the LEAD Coalition and the other groups is all the organizations working together. “We’re recognizing all types of barriers,” Lucas said. “We have to work together.” With residents of his ward in Glenwood being racially diverse but united by low economic status, Brown believes the crimes over the summer might have been more economically motivated than what was reported. Unlike Kady, he thinks the LEAD Coalition, with so many organizations under one umbrella, is destined to be more successful. And he hopes the coalition can inspire more activity in the neighborhood. “We have to have people come out, get people out of their houses and get them more involved,” Brown said. LEAD from Page A3 AREA Briefs Halifax Media staff reports PANAMA CITY Police: Man caught burglarizing cars Police arrested a 43-year-old man after they found him with items taken during two recent vehicle burglaries. Paul Edward Harden was arrested Monday and jailed on two counts of burglary. Panama City Police Department officers responded to a burglary in progress in the area of East 17th Street and Mercedes Avenue. A description of the suspect was circulated among officers, and Harden was detained nearby. Witnesses told officers they saw Harden break into two vehicles. A search revealed Harden had property taken in the burglaries, according to police. PANAMA CITY Man faces serious charges after chase A man who allegedly led police on a chase and then fought them to try to avoid arrest was suspected only of a minor traffic violation, according to the Panama City Police Department. Investigators with the PCPD’s Street Crimes Unit attempted to stop 30-year-old Carl Delray Richardson about 10:20 p.m. Tuesday. Richardson allegedly led the investigators on a short vehicle chase before jumping out in the 1000 block of Hamilton Avenue and running away. When he was cornered behind a nearby home, police said Richardson allegedly pushed and kicked investigators before he was subdued. Richardson, who was on drug offender probation for a cocaine possession conviction earlier in the year, said the only reason he tried to get away from police was because he didn’t want to go to prison for violating probation. Police charged Richardson with fleeing and eluding law enforcement, resisting an officer without violence, battery on a law enforcement officer and violation of probation. SANTA ROSA BEACH Cable provider, broadcaster at standoff Negotiations between cable provider Cox Communications and Gray Television, which broadcasts WJHG NBC, WECP CBS and the CW, have failed to reach an agreement that would allow the cable company to continue to air the broadcaster’s content. However, the planned blackout at midnight Wednesday was delayed. Gray and Cox have agreed to extend the negotiation deadline to midnight Jan. 6. “We’re still optimistic and we’re still actively working with them on the agreement,” said Cam Johnson, public affairs manager for Cox Communications. “We’re hopeful that it will be worked out by the sixth.” If an agreement cannot be reached, the broadcast channels still will be available to viewers with an antenna. MIRAMAR BEACH New reward offered in dolphin killing The Humane Society of the United States and the Humane Society Wildlife Land Trust are offering up to $5,000 in reward money for information about the person who shot a pregnant dolphin. The $5,000 is in addition to the $2,500 reward from Whale and Dolphin Conservation for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person responsible. The pregnant dolphin was found dead on the shore of Choctawhatchee Bay on Nov. 21 from a gunshot wound from a small-caliber gun.

Page A6 | The News Herald | Thursday, January 1, 2015 Viewpoints Creating good jobs G ov. Rick Scott says he has officially kept his jobs promise. Everybody else, pretty much, says he didn’t even come close. Scott announced last month that with the latest state jobs report, 700,000 new jobs have been created since he took office in January 2011. The governor said that fulfills his 2010 campaign jobs promise. Political opponents and fact checkers, however, have been quick to point out what the governor actually said originally was that he would create 700,000 new jobs in addition to the 1 million jobs economists expected to be created in Florida by 2017 naturally. Big difference, but no matter as Scott starts a second term. While Scott will take credit for 700,000 new jobs, the reality is that too many of those jobs are in low-paying industries such as retail, hospitality and tourism. As Dale Bill, a former director of the state office of Tourism, Trade and Economic Development under former Gov. Jeb Bush, wrote in a column in The Gainesville Sun earlier this month, job creation alone is not enough to fuel Florida’s economy and, along with it, the well-being of Florida’s residents. As Brill noted, economic development depends on more than job creation. The goal, he noted, has to be “improving the economic well-being of the community.” And as the recent United Way ALICE report made clear, 45 percent of Florida households have difficulty making monthly ends meet due to insufficient income. Moreover, Brill noted, things are not getting any better, because Florida’s economy and job market continue to be driven by retirees, tourism and agriculture — and all three industries are notorious for paying low wages. In fact, the average tourism industry worker is earning less today than in 2005. Scott can make speeches and boast about promises kept, but we would urge him to spend the next four years focusing not on a repackaged promise that has done too little to enhance the quality of life of most Floridians, but rather on what our state needs to do to attract jobs that raise the standard of living for average workers. That, in turn, creates economic sustainability for communities across the Sunshine State. As Brill noted, when the Information Technology and Innovation Foundation released its rankings of states based on 25 measures — including knowledge jobs, globalization, economic dynamism, the digital economy and innovation capacity — Florida fell from 21st place in 2012 to 25th place in 2014. That is going in the wrong direction. Creating any jobs is good and, indeed, welcome. But when too many of those jobs are low-wage and insufficient to support a household, it is not enough. If Scott wants to make a promise, promise us that he will spend the next four years transforming Florida’s economy into one that can provide livable, 21st century wages for most of its residents. B ack in the day, when hunting was the major source of food, hunters often used stalking horses as a means of sneaking up on their quarry. They would walk on the opposite side of the horse until they were close enough to place a good shot on whatever they were hunting. A stalking horse not only concealed them but also, if their target was an armed man and they were discovered, would take the first shot. That’s what blacks are to liberals and progressives in their efforts to transform America — stalking horses. Let’s look at some of the ways white liberals use black people. One of the more obvious ways is for liberals to equate any kind of injustices suffered by homosexuals and women to the black struggle for civil rights. But it is just plain nonsense to suggest any kind of equivalency between the problems of homosexuals and women and the centuries of slavery followed by Jim Crow, lynching, systematic racial discrimination and the blood, sweat and tears of the black civil rights movement. The largest and most powerful labor union in the country is the National Education Association, with well over 3 million members. Teachers benefit enormously from their education monopoly. It yields higher pay and lower accountability. It’s a different story for a large percentage of black people who receive fraudulent education. The NEA’s white liberals — aided by black teachers, politicians and socalled black leaders — cooperate to ensure that black parents who want their children to have a better education have few viable choices. Whenever there has been a serious push for school choice, educational vouchers, tuition tax credits or even charter schools, the NEA has fought against it. One of the more callous examples of that disregard for black education was New York Mayor Bill de Blasio’s cutback on funding for charter schools where black youngsters were succeeding in getting a better education. That was de Blasio’s way of paying back New York’s teachers union for the political support it gave him in his quest for the mayor’s office. White liberals in the media and academia, along with many blacks, have been major supporters of the recent marches protesting police conduct. A man from Mars, knowing nothing about homicide facts, would conclude that the major problem black Americans have with murder and brutality results from the behavior of racist policemen. According to the Bureau of Justice Statistics, there are about 200 police arrestrelated deaths of blacks each year (between 300 and 400 for whites). That number pales in comparison with the roughly 7,000 annual murders of blacks, 94 percent of which are committed by blacks. The number of blacks being murdered by other blacks is of little concern to liberals. Their agenda is to use arrest-related deaths of blacks to undermine established authority. Liberals often have demeaning attitudes toward blacks. When Secretary of State John Kerry was a U.S. senator, in a statement about so many blacks being in prison, he said, “That’s unacceptable, but it’s not their fault.” Would Kerry also say that white prison inmates are also faultless? Johns Hopkins University sociologist Andrew Cherlin told us: “It has yet to be shown that the absence of a father was directly responsible for any of the supposed deficiencies of broken homes. ... (The problem) is not the lack of male presence but the lack of male income.” The liberal vision is that fathers and husbands can be replaced by a welfare check. Liberals desperately need blacks. If the Democratic Party lost just 30 percent of the black vote, it would mean the end of the liberal agenda. That means blacks must be kept in a perpetual state of grievance in order to keep them as a one-party people in a two-party system. When black Americans finally realize how much liberals have used them, I’m betting they will be the nation’s most conservative people. Who else has been harmed as much by liberalism’s vision and agenda? Walter E. Williams is a professor of economics at George Mason University and a columnist with Creators Syndicate.

A s a lifelong resident, born and raised it Panama City, I am very concerned about the direction the development on the Panama City marina seems to be taking. The talk of high-rise hotels and/or condos on the marina, if put into effect, will totally ruin the view and the ambience of that “beautiful piece of heaven.” Growing up in a house across from McKenzie Park, I spent much of my childhood walking the streets that took me down to the Panama City Marina to watch the seagulls and the boats on the bay. Overdevelopment of that area will destroy what makes it so desirable: being able to see lots of sky and water, all kinds of seabirds flying overhead, dipping into the bay for fish for their noon and evening meals, and assorted boats drifting on the water under a noonday sun, or at night under a moonlit sky. In earlier News Herald articles, one of the proposed developers wanted to put a grocery store and parking garage on the marina. What a total waste of space and beautiful view that would be! And just plain tacky. Mayor Brudnicki and the Panama City commissioners need to think long and hard before they pick a developer and development plan for the marina. The decision they make, good or bad, will affect all of us in Panama City and the surrounding area for many, many years to come, so they need to get it right.

Sounds like a winner to me. Maybe we should adopt this novel idea to other forms of assaults. The FWC should have seminars for other forms of law enforcement. Think of it: A victim gets assaulted in Florida. The police use the FWC model: remove all the possible perpetrators from their habitat until they get a DNA match. I think this brilliant idea is the answer to all of Florida’s crime woes. Don’t you? STEPHEN GREEN Bonifay High schools see drop in school grades The News Herald article entitled, “3 of 7 high schools see grades drop” was most revealing. What really caught my attention was the subtitle “Bay superintendent blames tougher Florida grading system.” Across the state there were 188 “A” schools, making up 36 percent of the high schools. There were 180 “B” schools across the state, making up 35 percent. There were 55 schools that improved their school grade at least one letter grade. Some schools in our surrounding areas which saw improvement in their school grades include Blountstown, Altha, Wewahitchka, Cottondale, Baker and Laurel Hill. Laurel Hill improved their school grade going from a “D” to an “A.” I am sure the superintendents of these districts and schools did not blame the grading system. These schools were able to overcome the tougher grading system that was in place to grade all high schools in the state of Florida. If you look at the counties that surround Bay, which include Calhoun, Gulf, Jackson, Okaloosa, Washington and Walton, you will find that not any of these counties had a high school grade of a “C” or below. Over the past four years there has been a steady decrease in the academic performance of Bay District Schools. In 2011, Bay was an “A” district. In 2012, the district dropped to a “B” district. In 2013, the district fell to a “C” district, with five “D” schools and one “F” school. In 2014, the district fell to a low “C” with 10 “D” schools and four “F” schools, with three of the five public schools dropping one letter grade. I am sure the superintendent of Bay District Schools can find something on which to blame the downfall of our school grades while other districts and schools are succeeding. MACKIE OWENS Lynn Haven

(AP) — Tripp Foy’s sing-song chant rang out like a sentimental oldie for die-hard farmers clinging to the old way of selling tobacco, as a small proces sion of buyers shadowed him down long rows of reddish-brown leaf piled in bales. Farmers who have spent their lives tending the aromatic crop in their fields find comfort in Foy’s rat-a-tat style, part of an auction system that’s been all but snuffed out by another way of selling tobacco after years of declining smoking rates. “It’s kind of in our blood,” said tobacco farmer Walter Browning. “But I’m about bled out.” This tobacco-belt tradition, once as much a part of Kentucky’s fab ric as bourbon or horse racing, is fading away — and it’s taking the maestros like Foy with it. “The chant of an auctioneer can sound as good as a song,” said Foy, 63, who has spent four decades auctioning tobacco in Kentucky — the nation’s top burley producer. “You can walk down a row and you can almost dance to the tune of the sale.” Years ago, multiple auctioneers plied their trade in each of the state’s biggest burley markets as sales seasons typically stretched from late autumn until March. The competition for top auctioneers was fierce as warehouse operators looked for any edge to pull in more business from farmers. Now, most burley is sold under contracts between farmers and tobacco companies. Contract ing sprung up a decade ago after the demise of a federal program of price supports and production quotas that guaranteed minimum prices for most of the 20th century. The new system cut out ware house operators as middle men. Tobacco companies typically don’t disclose how much contract leaf they purchase or for how much to avoid tipping their hand to competitors. Excess world burley tobacco supplies and lower demand are driving down prices, said Univer sity of Kentucky agricultural econ omist Will Snell. Last year’s crop averaged $2.06 per pound. Quality leaf sold under contract is still fetching prices in the $1.90s to $2 a pound this season, he said. But selling non-contract burley, especially lower-quality leaf, is “going to be a struggle,” he said. Droves of farmers got out of tobacco as U.S. smoking rates declined. The number of U.S. tobacco farms dropped from 124,270 in 1992 to 16,234 during the last federal crop census in 2007. Burley, once a $1 billion crop in Kentucky, now generates about $300 million for the state’s remain ing growers. Despite the setbacks, a handful of auction markets have stubbornly hung on. Supporters say they provide a necessary alternative for tobacco farmers unable or unwilling to sign contracts or who are unhappy with prices offered by the companies at contract receiving stations. Tobacco auction system all but snuffed out ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — The contractor that runs the federal gov ernment’s underground nuclear waste repository is being denied millions of dollars in performance pay as part of the financial fall out from a radiation leak that forced the closure of the facility. Federal officials have said it could take years and a half-billion dollars to restart operations at the Waste Isolation Pilot Proj ect Plant near Carlsbad because of the February leak. The U.S. Energy Depart ment said in documents released Tuesday that it is paying Nuclear Waste Part nership LLC just $21,576 of the $8 million of potential performance incentives for the past fiscal year. The partnership manages the plant under a contract that pays more than $140 million annually. The leak occurred when a container packed with radioactive waste from Los Alamos National Labora tory ruptured in an under ground storage area and contaminated more than 20 workers. The performance award for Nuclear Waste Part nership was announced one day after the DOE’s National Nuclear Security Administration docked the contractor that runs Los Alamos lab for its failures related to the radiation leak. The lab contractor received $6.25 million in incentives, just a fraction of the more than $63 million that was possible for the last fiscal year. Both contractors and the DOE also are facing $54 million in penalties levied by the New Mexico Envi ronment Department, and state officials have said more fines are possible as the investigation into the radiation leak continues. Recovery efforts at the nuclear repository did get a $104 million boost as part of a federal spending package signed by President Barack Obama in December. That was on top of the original request of $220 million for operations. Feds deny performance pay to nuke dump operator AP The Waste Isolation Pilot Plant, the nation’s only underground nuclear waste repository near Carlsbad, N.M., remains idle. Operations at the site were halted following a truck fire and a release of radiation nine days later. BUSINESS Briefs The Associated Press WASHINGTON Applications for jobless aid rise More Americans sought unemployment benefits last week, but the number of applications continues to be at historically low levels that suggest solid economic growth will continue. The Labor Department said Wednesday that applications for unemployment benefits climbed 17,000 last week to a seasonally adjusted 298,000. The four-week average, a less volatile measure, rose 250 to 290,750. That average has plummeted 17.5 percent in the past 12 months. Applications are a proxy for layoffs. For almost four months, applications for jobless aid have hovered at relatively low sub-300,000 levels. That suggests employers expect strong economic growth to continue, causing them to hold onto their staff and potentially hire additional workers. As fewer people have sought unemployment benefits, job growth has steadily accelerated and helped fuel the economy. The economy expanded at an annualized rate of 5 percent during the JulySeptember quarter, the strongest performance in 11 years. That follows a 4.6 percent annual rate in the April-June quarter, the government reported last week. NEW YORK VW recalls 38,000 cars due to fire risk The Volkswagen Group of America is recalling about 38,000 cars because a fuel leak in the engine might cause a fire. The automaker said no injuries or accidents have been reported. The recall covers 2014 to 2015 model years of the Volkswagen Beetle, Jetta, Passat and 2015 models of the Golf and GTI. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration said drivers might smell gas inside their vehicles. Volkswagen is telling owners who smell gas or see the electronic power control warning light go on to immediately bring the vehicle to a Volkswagen dealer to have the fuel system inspected. Volkswagen said it would notify owners of the recalled cars. There is no cost to owners for the repairs. The Associated Press Stocks delivered again in 2014. Even after a poor start in January and wobbles in October and December, the U.S. market has climbed 13 percent and is ending the year close to record levels. The solid gain has pushed the bull run for stocks into its sixth year, the longest such streak since the 1990s. Investors have been encouraged by rising cor porate earnings and a strengthening U.S. econ omy, which helped stocks overcome a brief winter chill in growth and ten sions with Russia. The stock market also over came worries about the impact of the end of the Federal Reserve’s stimu lus program. Those who stuck out the market’s ups and downs were rewarded with double-digit returns for the fifth year out of the last six. “Companies delivered and the ability to pro duce on the bottom line remained resilient,” said Jeff Kleintop, Charles Schwab’s chief global investment strategist. “Ultimately, that’s what stocks track.” All the major stock aver ages are ending the year with respectable returns. The Standard & Poor’s 500 index has returned 14 percent including divi dends, after a return of 32 percent in 2013. The Dow Jones industrial average has returned 11 percent. The stock market also experienced its biggest bout of volatility in more than two years. Stocks plunged as much as 9.8 percent in October on con cerns about global growth and worries about the spread of the Ebola virus. The market also managed to climb despite a big drop in oil prices that hit energy companies. Geopolitical tensions flared as Russia seized Crimea, war broke out in eastern Ukraine and the Islamic State group seized swaths of territory in Iraq and Syria. Resilient economy The backdrop for the stock market’s gains was a gradually strengthening U.S. economy. Hiring and consumer confidence con tinued to improve. Despite a big contrac tion in the first quarter caused by an unusually harsh winter, the economy continued to grow. The average pace of growth climbed to 2.7 percent by the end of the year, up from 2.3 percent a year earlier. A widely forecast demise for bonds failed to materialize. Bonds had been expected to slump as the Fed neared the end of its bond-buying stimulus pro gram and growth acceler ated. Instead, they rallied as investors became more pessimistic on the outlook for global growth as econo mies overseas weakened. Bonds also gained because they looked attrac tive to overseas investors. Their yields, while close to historically low levels, are still higher than in coun tries such as Germany and Japan. The yield on the 10-year Treasury note is ending the year at 2.18 percent, after starting 2014 at 3 percent. Bull market keeps going in 2014

WC@TriviaGuy.com WILS O N C A SEY Trivia Guy Review: Desperation runs deep in Russia’s ‘Leviathan’ By LINDSEY BAHR Desperation runs through the frozen ground and swelling seas in “Leviathan,” director Andrey Zvyagintsev’s devastatingly beautiful and grand tale of man’s ever deepening helplessness against a corrupt state and an indifferent God. The unlucky casualty of both Thomas Hobbes and Job (as in the “Book of”) is Kolya (Alexey Serebryakov), a craftsman and mechanic whose family has inhabited this particular fishing town in North Russia for three generations. He lives in a gorgeous, wooden, seabattered house, along with his beautiful young wife, Lilya (Elena Lyadova), and his unruly adolescent son, Roma (Sergey Pokhodaev), from a previous marriage. We learn early on that the town’s mayor, Vadim Shelevyat (Roman Madyanov), a brutish, puffy thug, is aiming to take away Kolya’s business, house and land. He has his eyes on a commercial communications center of some sort, and Kolya’s idyllic two-thirds of an acre on a slip of land overlooking the Barents Sea is just the spot for his greedy ambitions. Kolya, a hot-tempered, passionate sort, calls in his cool, suave friend Dmitriy (Vladimir Vdovichenkov), a buttoned up Moscow lawyer, for help in court. Despite a front of masculine aloofness, Kolya wears every worry on his face and in every jug of vodka he consumes. His entire being is wrapped up in the house, a physical representation of his heritage and a symbol of his personhood, and it’s all in jeopardy. Alas, their appeal is rejected by a humorless bureaucrat who reads what might as well be this man’s execution sentence with monotone, robotic speed. We’ve not seen or heard the last word from this alienating system, though. There is perfect symmetry to this tragedy. For a moment, hope doesn’t seem to be lost. Dmitri has an edge. He plans to use Vadim’s deep, and (we’re to assume) embarrassing corruption for leverage for his friend, but, in the midst of a deal, human weakness gets in the way after a traumatizing discovery on a weekend camping (and shooting and drinking) trip. With feelings and friendships suddenly in jeopardy, everything spirals further out of control till there is nothing left. If it sounds like all business, it’s really not. Most of the scenes take place in the home, among friends and tenuous allies — the folks that you’ve known for far too long and dislike far too much, but the town is small enough that they’re all you’ve got. At least there’s vodka, which seems to be the only thing in abundant supply. To say much more about what’s in store for Kolya would diminish the impact of “Leviathan.” Needless to say, this is a Russian story, it is very long, and the hits keep coming with relentless indifference, peppered with perilously dark humor. Kolya is the gritty, steadfast heart of the film, anchored by Serebryakov’s resolute performance, and the layered characters around him help to build out a world that’s both familiar and isolating. It is the filmmaking that is the real triumph, though, from the melancholy cinematography to the sheer scope of the storytelling. Zvyagintsev has made this very small tale of a man and his family and some bureaucrats feel like it’s actually about everything without ever resorting to melodrama, even when the camera returns to linger on the ship and whale carcasses sitting in the shallow sea. Somehow every minute feels earned. Beyond the dense allegories and veiled critiques of Vladimir Putin, who merely lingers in portrait form over the shoulders of the state’s employees, there is an essential human story here. When man is fated for destruction at the hands of the institutions designed for protection, all you can do is laugh and drink until both run out. What else could you expect from a Philip Glass-scored film that begins and ends with a violent sea crashing against a rocky shore? “Leviathan,” a Sony Pictures Classic release, is rated R by the Motion Picture Association of America for “language and some sexuality/graphic nudity.” Running time: 141 minutes. Four stars out of four. MPAA definition of R: Restricted. Under 17 requires accompanying parent or adult guardian. AP In this image released by Sony Pictures Classics, Aleksey Serebryakov appears in a scene from the film, “Leviathan.”

DIVERSIONS A ces On BRIDGE: B obby W olff Bounced around girlfriend should bounce out of relationship DEAR AMY: My boyfriend and I have been together for almost four years. I have given up job opportunities and graduate school opportunities to move around the country for him and his job. We are currently living in a small town in Texas with our 2-year-old son. He promises me we will get married one day, but not anytime soon. When I tell him I want marriage, he says I’m pressuring him. I have tried to compromise and ask him to at least make me feel like I’m his partner by combining even a portion of our finances to cover mutual costs (home, groceries, child care, etc.) and he says no. He won’t even tell me his salary. His parents had a nasty divorce, and I can’t help but think that has influenced him and his ability to commit. I love him, and I know he loves me. I don’t want to raise our son apart, but I know I’ll never be fully happy if we don’t get married. When I try to talk to him about my concerns, it always turns into a huge fight. Do I stay, or do I leave? TI RED OF W A I T ING DEAR T I RED: I almost never respond with an instant reaction that someone should leave a relationship — certainly with a toddler in the picture, but I’m making an exception here. Your guy is controlling and withholding. You are responsible for your choice to give up opportunities and your education in order to follow him around, have a child with him and to exist in a relationship limbo that you claim is 100 percent not what you want. Please, don’t make your life worse by doubling down and insisting on marrying him. Never give up your dreams. Never give up your own power. In a truly loving relationship, both partners share their dreams — and balance their power. This man is showing you exactly who he is. Believe him. You need to call a friend or family member, see a lawyer and start your life anew. DEAR AMY: My husband and I recently learned that we will be great-grandparents! Two of our granddaughters have announced their pregnancies and we are thrilled. The other day my daughter sent me a picture of her daughter’s four-month baby bump. She was wearing a tight shirt and the bump was quite pronounced. I realize that I may be from a different generation that “just doesn’t get it,” but anybody with good eyesight (or even not so good eyesight) can see how unattractive pregnant women are nowadays, prancing around in tight shirts. I really hoped my granddaughters would not wear these fashions. Everybody should take Kate Middleton as a beautiful example. My daughter said that my granddaughters are adults with good sense and good taste and the last thing they need is guidance about what to wear. She thinks big pregnant bellies are adorable! My husband agrees with me that big bellies are not attractive and need to be covered tastefully. I would like to tell my granddaughters what we think. What should we do? UPS ET GREAT -G RA N D P ARE N T S DEAR U PS ET: On the surface, it is sort of sweet that you care so much about maternity fashions. On every other level, however, it’s quite rude, and if your granddaughters wrote to me complaining about how you and your husband dress, I would tell them the same thing. I give you permission to tsk, tsk, tsk silently. But, please, stop judging how these grown women are dressing. You dragged Kate Middleton into this, so you should follow her lovely example and let discretion be your fashion guide. DEAR AMY: Sorry, but you blew it in your response to “Disappointed Bride,” whose brother-in-law and nephew were going to skip her wedding to participate in a baseball tournament. I’m sorry, but planning your wedding on Memorial Day weekend and then expecting the whole thing to be about you is pretty selfish. This boy has a commitment to his team, and he should fulfill his commitment. DIS A PPOIN TED DEAR D IS A PPOIN TED: Many readers agree with you, but I’m firmly in the other camp. Weddings should be all about the family. These milestone events should come before youth sports. Send questions via e-mail to askamy@ tribune.com or by mail to Ask Amy, Chicago Tribune, TT500, 435 N.

Thursday, January 1, 2015 | The News Herald | Page A11 Nation & World AP The body of a victim is carried out of a north Edmonton home in Edmonton, Alberta, on Tuesday. EDMONTON, Alberta (AP) — A man with a lengthy criminal record killed six adults and two young chil dren before taking his own life in Edmonton in what the police chief on Tuesday called the western Canadian city’s worst mass murder. Edmonton Police Chief Rod Knecht told a news con ference late Tuesday night there was no suggestion of gang involvement and said the motive for the “sense less mass murder” appears to have been “planned and deliberate” domestic violence. “It’s terrible for the city,” Knecht said. “The scene ... has been described as chaotic, horrific. Particu larly when there’s children involved, it has a tremen dous impact on our folks.” Knecht did not release the name of the suspect, but said the man was wellknown to police and had a criminal record dating back to September 1987. Cindy Duong, 37, was fatally shot in a home in south Edmonton on Monday, while two men and three women between the ages of 25 and 50, and a girl and a boy — both under the age of 10 — were found dead a few hours later at a home in the northeast. The suspect was found dead by his own hand in a restaurant in the Edmon ton bedroom community of Fort Saskatchewan on Tues day morning. A police tac tical team had surrounded the area and reportedly smashed through the front of the restaurant with a vehicle before finding the suspect dead. Duong’s body was found about 7 p.m. Monday when police responded to a report of a man entering the southside home, opening fire and fleeing, Knecht said. An hour and a half later, officers responded to reports of a suicidal man at a north east residence in a quiet cul de sac, the same home where the suspect had been arrested in November 2012 and charged with domestic and sexual assault. Family members reported in the call that the man was “depressed and over-emotional.” When officers arrived, no one answered the door, Knecht said. They searched the exterior of the home but found nothing overtly suspi cious and did not go inside. “We can’t just arbitrarily go into that residence,” explained the chief. Hours later police were contacted by a second per son and returned to the residence. When they went inside, they found a scene of carnage with seven bodies. Neighbor Moe Assiff said he saw officers come out and talk to a woman sitting with a man in a white car outside the house. “She just let out a hys terical scream. It was eerie,” Assiff said. “She was screaming about her kids: ‘My kids! The kids!,’ grab bing her hair and trying to pull her hair out. The cops then ushered her down the road into a police cruiser.” Outside the restaurant where the suspect’s body was found, police found a parked black SUV that they say was seen near the loca tion of the first shooting. Knecht said the suspect had a business interest in the restaurant, but would not say if he was the owner. Investigators have deter mined the 9 mm handgun used in the killings was a registered weapon that had been stolen in Surrey, Brit ish Columbia, in 2006. Man with lengthy criminal past killed 8 plus himself ‘Planned and deliberate’ domestic violence blamed for Edmonton deaths WASHINGTON (AP) — More than half of Americans say they already have enough information at restaurants to decide whether they are mak ing a healthy purchase. But they want even more. According to an Associated Press-GfK poll conducted in December, most Americans favor labeling calories on menus in fast food and sitdown restaurants. Most favor labels for prepared foods in the grocery store, too. The poll was conducted a little more than a week after the Food and Drug Adminis tration announced new rules that will require restaurants and other establishments that sell prepared foods and have 20 or more locations to post the calorie content of food “clearly and conspicuously” on their menus, menu boards and displays. Companies will have until November to comply. A majority of Americans — 56 percent — favor requiring fast-food restaurants to post calorie amounts on menus, while 54 percent favor the cal orie postings at sit-down res taurants and 52 percent favor the labels at prepared food counters at grocery stores. Slightly fewer approved of requiring the calorie post ings in other dining loca tions. Forty-nine percent of Americans supported posting calories on coffee shop menus and 44 percent approved of the postings on vending machines and at movie theaters. Forty-three percent favored calorie post ings in amusement parks. All of those establishments will be required to post calorie amounts under the new FDA rules. Opposition low Only about 1 in 10 Americans oppose label ing requirements at each of these places. The remainder said they neither favor nor oppose each requirement. Women are more likely than men to say they favor labeling requirements at res taurants and prepared-food counters, though a majority of men support the labeling at fast-food restaurants and around half support it at sitdown restaurants. Collegeeducated respondents are more likely than those with out a college education to favor labeling requirements at all of the establishments. The support appears to be relatively bipartisan. Demo crats are significantly more likely to support the calorie postings than independents or Republicans, but a slim majority of Republicans still support calorie postings at restaurants. The idea behind the rules is that people might pass on that bacon double cheese burger if they know it has hundreds of calories — and, in turn, restaurants might make their foods health ier to keep calorie counts down. The menus and menu boards will tell diners that a 2,000-calorie diet is used as the basis for daily nutrition, noting that individual calorie needs might vary. Additional nutritional information beyond calories, includ ing sodium, fats, sugar and other items, must be avail able upon request. When they’re judging whether a food item is a healthy choice, 55 percent of Americans say how many calories it contains is very or extremely important to them. Same with sodium levels. Sugar and fat were slightly more important to health-conscious diners — 61 percent said sugar was very or extremely important when deciding on healthy purchases and 59 percent said the same about the amount of fat. Only 36 percent of Ameri cans said they feel the level of vitamins and minerals is extremely or very important when making healthy pur chases, and even fewer — 23 percent — said the same about whether an item is organic.

Columbus officers searched Tuesday near a creek with a dive team and helicopter after Dainesha Stevens admitted she and a male acquaintance left the boy, Cameron Beckford, on Friday night because they could no longer care for him. The area being searched on the city’s far east side is more than 2 miles from the home where Stevens said she left the child. It is now considered a recovery effort because of information obtained by investigators, said Sgt. Rich Weiner, a Columbus police spokesman. Stevens was scheduled for arraignment in Franklin County Municipal Court on two felonies, including tampering with evidence. She remains in custody, and online court records listed no attorney for her. ECHO SUMMIT, Calif. California snow survey shows higher snowpack The winter’s first survey of the Sierra Nevada snowpack found more snow than last year at this time, but officials said much more is needed to end the California drought. The Department of Water Resources conducted the survey Tuesday at an elevation of about 6,800 feet some 90 miles east of Sacramento. Frank Gehrke, chief of the California Cooperative Snow Surveys Program, said there were 21.3 inches of snow on the ground after recent heavy storms. It was more snow than this time last year, but the water content was still far below average for the date. California’s snowpack supplies about a third of the water needed by state residents, agriculture and industry as it melts in the late spring and summer. “California needs much more rain and snow than we’ve experienced over the past two years to end the drought in 2015,” said department Director Mark Cowin. “The department encourages Californians to continue their water conservation practices.” Gov. Jerry Brown declared a drought emergency Jan. 17. MIAMI U.S. releases 5 Guantanamo prisoners, sends them to Kazakhstan Five men who were held for a dozen years without charge at the U.S. Navy base at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, have been sent to the Central Asian nation of Kazakhstan for resettlement, the U.S. government announced. The two men from Tunisia and three from Yemen had been cleared for release from the prison by a government task force but could not be sent to their homelands. The U.S. has sent hundreds of prisoners from Guantanamo to third countries but this is the first time Kazakhstan has accepted any for resettlement. Their release brings the prison population at Guantanamo to 127, according to a Pentagon statement on Tuesday. All five had been captured in Pakistan and turned over to the U.S. for detention as suspected Islamic militants with ties to al-Qaida. None of the men were ever charged and a government task force determined it was no longer necessary to hold them. The U.S. does not say why they could not be sent home but the government has been unwilling to send Yemenis to their country because of unrest and militant activity there while in the past some Tunisians have feared persecution. SANAA, Yemen Yemen suicide bombing kills at least 24 A suicide bomber attacked a large gathering of Shiite rebels Wednesday in central Yemen preparing to commemorate the Prophet Muhammad’s birthday, killing at least 24 people and wounding 48, a rebel spokesman said. Mohammed Abdel-Baki, the local spokesman for the Houthi rebels, said a suicide bomber blew himself up inside a culture center in the city of Ibb. Footage shown on private satellite network Yemen Today showed bloody corpses filling corridors next to a stage, where celebrations for the Prophet Muhammad’s birthday were taking place. Abdel-Baki said the governor of Ibb province had been at the event, but wasn’t wounded. The rebel spokesman said the head of the culture center was killed. Abdel-Baki described the attack as a “massacre.” NATION & WORLD Briefs

Page A12 | The News Herald | Thursday, January 1, 2015 NATIO N & WORLD Maryland execution sentences commuted LAS VEGAS (AP) — One fire works coordinator has a request of Mother Nature in this city of glitzy shows: If you’re going to let it snow on New Year’s Eve, let it fall at the perfect moment — right before midnight when his show launches from the Las Vegas Strip. Phil Grucci, president and creative director of Fireworks by Grucci, talked about the frosty fore cast as he stood Tuesday atop the Treasure Island casino-hotel, one of seven hotel rooftops where 70 work ers have been readying the displays since the day after Christmas. And if it’s going to snow, it would be great if it stopped shortly after the show ends, he said. Like large swaths of the West ern U.S., Las Vegas was bracing for unusually cold weather as 2014 ended and 2015 began — the low in the desert city on New Year’s Eve was forecast to be 32 degrees when about 340,000 people were expected to pack the Strip and Las Vegas’ downtown Fremont area for festivities. The suburb of Henderson reported trace amounts early Wednesday, and snow flurries fell in the Las Vegas valley, but there were no reports of it sticking. But a layer of dry air was absorbing much of the precipitation before it reached the ground in the heart of Las Vegas, according to National Weather Service meteorologist Justin Pullin, and there was only a negligible chance of snow at night. But snow was heavy enough in California to strand more than 180 motorists traveling in the San Ber nardino and San Gabriel Mountains northeast of Los Angeles. They were rescued by early Wednesday. The storm also dropped powder on very low elevations across inland Southern California and packed winds that toppled trees. In Las Vegas, tourists walking the Strip on Tuesday took the cold snap in stride, especially those from the Midwest and Northwest. “I think we brought the snow from Ohio,” said Lisa Richey, 38, who along with her sister and long time friend came prepared for the chilly holiday. Jared Corriveau, 24, also of Ohio, wore a T-shirt as he walked with his family outside and past people in coats with hands shoved deep into pockets, including Marcio Berri, 26, of Brazil. “Who would expect snowing in Vegas?” Berri said. He said he’d likely buy some new scarves and gloves before New Year’s Eve night, when he still planned to stand outside on the Strip with the masses. “We’re gonna be in the street. It doesn’t matter how cold it is,” Berri said. If Berri ends up in front of the Monte Carlo casino-hotel, he’ll have his pick of adult beverages from an outdoor bar, but there also will be coffee and hot chocolate — spiked or not. Julie Pendergast, 33, and Tra vis Kearin, 32, left colder weather behind in Seattle, but they brought layers of winter coats with them. Kearin had been in Sin City years before, when he could wear shorts to ring in the new year. Still, Pendergast was excited. “The sun’s nice. So I’m still happy,” she said. If it snows, it’ll be fairly light and could be done altogether by 7 p.m. or so, National Weather Service meteorologist Chris Stachelski said. Wind posed another problem. But as of Tuesday, it appeared Grucci wouldn’t have to battle it. The weather service forecast wind during the day but expected it to die down to 5 to 10 mph by evening. That 10 mph is the limit for Grucci’s show. “The wind is our nemesis,” he said. Forecasts in Las Vegas pinned the area’s chances on New Year’s Eve snow, whether it’s a light dust ing or more, at 60 percent. The last time any notable amount of snow stuck was Dec. 17, 2008. Even with that level of confi dence, snowball fights on the Strip are far from a sure bet. The unusual weather is part of a cold and “some what moist” storm that starting moving south across California into the Mojave Desert and Las Vegas, bringing snow to parts of northern Arizona and Utah, the weather ser vice said. Stachelski said the storm would start turning, bypassing most of Nevada, with the exception of the southern tip, and heading toward Arizona and New Mexico instead. In New Mexico, snow, sleet and freezing fog combined to make for difficult driving conditions on numerous highways, particularly in the east. In northern Arizona, up to 5 inches of snow had fallen by mid morning in parts of the Flagstaff area, and snowplows were clearing Interstate 40 and other highways. What are the odds? Vegas worries about New Year’s snowAP FI LE P HO T O Snow covers the sides and sphinx of the Luxor Hotel on the Las Vegas Strip in December 2008. If Sin City’s sports books took bets on the weather, snow in Las Vegas on New Year’s Eve would normally have terrible odds. But it could pay off, according to forecasts. ANNAP O L I S, Md. (AP) — Outgoing Democratic Gov. Martin O’Malley said Wednesday he will commute the capital sentences of the state’s last four inmates on death row to life in prison, saying executing them “does not serve the public good of the people of Maryland.” Two years ago, the Gen eral Assembly abolished the death penalty in the state, making the ultimate sen tence in new cases life in prison without the possibility of parole. That left four previously sentenced inmates on death row. The governor noted that outgoing Democratic Attor ney General Doug Gansler recently asserted that carry ing out prior sentences would be illegal in the absence of an existing statute. “The question at hand is whether any public good is served by allowing these essentially un-executable sentences to stand,” O’Malley said. “In my judgment, leav ing these death sentences in place does not serve the public good of the people of Maryland — present or future.” The governor said he had met or spoken with many of the relatives of the people killed by the inmates, and he thanked them for talking with him about the cases. But he said that his fail ing to act at this point in the legal process would “need lessly and callously subject survivors, and the people of Maryland, to the ordeal of an endless appeals process, with unpredictable twists and turns, and without any hope of finality or closure.” O’Malley will leave office next month after having served two terms, the limit in Maryland. Gansler will leave office at the same time after a failed bid for the Democratic nomination for governor. Gansler argued three weeks ago before the Mary land Court of Special Appeals that inmate Jody Lee Miles should be re-sentenced to life without possibility of parole. He urged judges on the state’s intermediate appel late court to send the case back to a circuit court for a new sentence.

The first-year Marlins coach doesn’t appear to have gotten his wish, as Arnold dropped its third straight game by 15 or more points, falling this time on Wednesday to LaVergne (Tenn.) 49-34 in the sev enth-place game. On the boys side, Moore County (Tenn.) won a closely contested matchup with Wren (S.C.) 47-42 to earn seventh. LaVergne used a 20-0 first-half run to blow open the game with Arnold and take a 30-10 halftime lead. The Marlins never got closer than 15 points the rest of the way. It was a performance Ezell said was disappointing in a way that no other has been this year. “That was a team that I thought we were better than, and that’s the first time this year I think we’ve lost to a team that I thought we were better than,” Ezell said. “But we played three games in a row with seven (players) on the bench, so endurance came into play. “We played a team that was quicker than us and quickness is not our asset.

Rutherford, which had lost to the Dolphins twice during the regular season, mustered just three hits but squeaked past Mos ley for a 2-1 win. That result sent Mosley on the road to Wakulla for the Region 1-5A quarterfinals, and the Rams earned a home game against Suwannee.

Urban Meyer, the offensive genius. The areas of expertise may be different, but their coaching principles are cut from the same cloth. A demanding quest for perfection, even though they recognize it will always be just out of reach. An abso lute rejection of anything that feels like content ment, no matter how many champi onships they might win. A neurotic obsession with every little detail, while recognizing that some delegation is required.

Not that they’ll be rel ishing the moment. “It’s always about the next play. It’s always about the next game,” Saban said Tues day, speaking from a podium on the floor of the Superdome. “I’m always looking toward the future.” Saban has already won four national titles, three of them coming in the last five years at Alabama.

The Associated Press When Minnesota coach Jerry Kill came back from a leave of absence sooner than expected, everyone took notice. Last year, after a bout with epileptic seizures forced Kill to miss an entire game for the first time in his career, he appeared in the locker room at Northwestern to give the Gophers a surprise pep talk. The speech was routine: He talked about playing hard, hav ing fun. He was proud they’d handled the disruption of his absence. But what he said was secondary to the message Kill’s presence sent to the team. His wife, Rebecca, drove him the sixplus hours to be there. Kill’s still there, getting the Gophers ready for the Citrus Bowl today in Orlando. This will be the first time in 53 years that Minnesota will play on New Year’s Day. Questions were raised last season about Kill’s ability to fulfill the job with a potentially debilitating condition, but they’ve since been quieted. “The thing I’m probably most proud of is the players and how the ones who came in and the ones who were here blended in and went through those times. A very close group,” Kill said. Kill had to do his part, putting aside his stubborn personality and prioritizing rest, diet and exercise over the time-con suming demands of being a major college football coach. But his determination was what pushed his path from that tiny home town of Cheney, Kansas, through the unglamorous NCAA Division II level and to a job running a Big Ten team. That inner drive was also what com pleted the process of endearment for him with a group of players who weren’t sure what to think after a gru eling, no-nonsense first season. The Gophers went 3-9 in 2011. No. Name Yr. Pos. 1 Tyler Hunter R-Jr. DB 1 Ermon Lane Fr. WR 3 Ronald Darby Jr. DB 3 Jesus Wilson So. WR 4 Dalvin Cook Fr.

Neither defense had a spectacular season under its new management, strug gling with injuries and occasionally produc ing lamentable defen sive results. Yet both clearly have been good enough to earn a national title shot, and Kelly and Pellum both express pride in their work — albeit tinged with the awareness that their jobs are about to get a whole lot tougher. “We knew there would be some challenges, but at the same time, I think our guys have stepped up,” Kelly said. “Are we the same team? No. But I’m very proud of what our guys have done and how they have hung in there together and fought through.” Kelly had moved from Georgia Tech to Florida State just one year before his promotion, taking over when Jeremy Pruitt left the Semi noles for Georgia after only one sea son in Tallahassee — and just eight days after Florida State beat Auburn in Pasadena for the national title. Kelly is Jimbo Fisher’s third defen sive coordinator in three years, start ing with Mark Stoops’ departure for Kentucky. Florida State led the nation in scoring defense and interceptions last season during its national cham pionship run. Kelly had the daunting challenge of replacing a flock of soon-to-be NFL players, including Jacksonville linebacker Telvin Smith, St. Louis safety Lamarcus Joyner, Chicago linebacker Christian Jones and Bal timore teammates Timmy Jernigan and Terrence Brooks. Several Seminoles took on larger responsibilities in their teammates’ absence. Kelly’s defense relies less on constant quarterback pressure than Pruitt’s defense did, partly in concession to injuries, but remained among the nation’s toughest units in red-zone defense. Like the offense, Florida State’s defense has repeat edly struggled early and finished strong in games. “It’s been really fun to play for (Kelly),” Florida State linebacker Ter rance Smith said. “I love what he’s done this year. It’s different than last year, but his halftime adjustments have helped us finish up games. Pruitt was a little more aggressive, blitzing more. I love to blitz, but I can’t be mad.” Pellum worked his way up the hierarchy at Oregon for 23 years, patiently helping Mike Bellotti and longtime defensive coordinator Nick Aliotti, who retired after 17 seasons in charge. Oregon was among the Pac-12’s top defenses in each of the past two seasons under Aliotti. No. Name Yr. Pos. 1 Chance Allen R-So. WR 1 Arrion Springs Fr. DB 2 Tyree Robinson R-Fr. DB 3 Ty Grifn R-Fr.

SPORT S Rutherford earned the right to host the game by winning the district tournament title and came into the game with a 22-4 record. Mosley boasted a 25-3 mark. The Vera Shamplain Sports Complex features a large grandstand behind home plate, and temporary bleachers were brought in to accommodate the hundreds of fans who attended. The standing-room-only crowd watched Mosley starter Austin Bizzle pitch a four-hitter to keep Rutherford’s batters off-balance for seven innings of the 5-1 Dolphin win. Connor Greene blasted a three-run homer in the sixth inning to basically decide the outcome. “I think there were more fans at this game than last year at the Final Four,” said Greene, who added a run-scoring sacrifice fly in the Dolphins’ two-run fourth inning. “It was electric.” Rutherford’s Nick Nelson, who was selected by the San Francisco Giants in the 31st round last June, allowed just four hits in the loss. Mosley advanced to play at Clay in the regional finals with a berth in the state semis at stake. The Dolphins jumped ahead 1-0 in the top of the first, but Clay responded with a five-run outburst in the bottom half of the inning en route to a 8-3 victory that ended Mosley’s season at 26-4. Thursday, January 1, 2015 | The News Herald | Page B3 BASEBALL from page B1 B ats are the best mosquito control known to man Have you ever taken time to notice those things flying up and down your street in the summer at dusk? They are not birds, but the only flying mammals in the world. They are bats. The word bat sends shivers down the spine of a lot of people, but that is only because they don’t take time to understand these creatures. Bats sweep the sky of insects from dusk till dawn. The insects they eat are much more terrifying than bats ever could be. Mosquitoes are much more dangerous than bats because they can carry malaria. Some bats can carry rabies, but so do dogs and almost any other mammal except armadillos. It is very infrequent to find a bat with rabies simply because of the life they lead. They are small as a mouse, and go off and die and no one knows of their existence unlike a raccoon that wanders the neighborhood getting into fights with dogs and biting people. Bats are very beneficial in that they eat literally pounds of mosquitoes during a summer. Did you know we have at least 20 species of bats living in Florida? Thirteen are considered resident and seven are considered accidental. The accidental species are those that have been documented here, but do not live or breed in Florida. You can tell a bat from a bird by its flight pattern. Unlike a bird, a bat has an erratic, jerky motion to its flight. The reason for this is the pattern bats have to fly in order to catch insects. Bats are not blind as some people think, but operate on sound to find their evening meals. Think of the radar weathermen show at night. It sends out a signal that is reflected by such things as rain and snow. Bats send out a signal that is reflected by insects. When a bat detects something in its path it has to determine in a millisecond if this object is food or a tree limb. If it is food it might miss the insect the first or second time its echo locates the object and it has to turn around and relocate the insect and catch it. That is the reason it has such an erratic flight. A lot of people have misconceptions about bats, one being that they are blind. Nothing could be farther from the truth. Bats can and do navigate in total darkness. Humans have great eyesight, but try walking through a room at night with no light and see how well you fare. Another misconception is bats will attack people or fly into their hair. The last thing a bat wants is to get into someone’s hair. Bats are so beneficial it is becoming a popular past time to build bat houses much like bird houses. Bat houses are too complicated to explain here. They have to be built to special specifications or bats will go elsewhere to roost. People who have bat houses that are successful in luring in a family of bats enjoy sitting around the house in the evening watching them leave for the night. If they are industrious enough to be around the house at dawn they will be treated to many bats returning home for the day. We all have heard about vampire bats from the movies, and they do exist, just not in the United States. They live in South America and feed on cattle and sometimes people. They don’t live in coffins or castles, but in hollow trees. They will find a sleeping cow or goat and cut the animal and lap up the blood causing no harm unless the animal is sick and passes on the sickness to the livestock or human it has fed on. Like other mammals, bats have teeth and fur and nurse their young. They actually carry their young along with them on their nightly travels. So the next time it warms up enough for mosquitoes to come out remember that bats also will be out trying to rid the neighborhood of these blood-sucking varmints. OUTDOORS REPORT Outdoor Life Scott Lindsey Outdoor Writer captscottlindsey @outlook. com T ales from the tour The Associated Press Jim Mahoney parted with a tiny piece of U.S. Open history with hopes it could change Phil Mickel son’s luck. It was a broken tee in a plastic bag. “A souvenir that money can’t buy,” Mahoney said in a telephone interview from his home in Connecticut. Mahoney brought the tee to the Deutsche Bank Championship, along with a letter explaining the cir cumstances around it. This was the last tee Mickelson used at Winged Foot in the 2006 U.S. Open. His drive sailed far to the left on the 18th hole, like so many of his tee shots that Sunday, and caromed off a tent. From there, Lefty made double bogey and finished one shot behind. The U.S. Open remains the only major keeping him from the career Grand Slam. Winged Foot haunts him more than his other five runner-up finishes. “I was on the tee at Winged Foot, me and a friend of mine,” Mahoney said. “Phil got out his driver and was bouncing the ball off the face. Phil looked over to the 17th green and there’s a scoreboard. It showed that (Colin) Mont gomerie had just double bogeyed the 18th. His whole demeanor changed. But he hits this horrendous slice.” Thousands of fans who had crowded around the tee box took off down the sides of the fairway. Mahoney and his friend walked across the teeing ground. “We’re the only ones there. The marshals gave up,” he said. “They were the last group to hit. And there’s Phil’s tee.” Even after it was over, Mahoney’s said his friends told him he should put the tee on a plaque. Instead, he stored it in a drawer. He wanted Mickelson to win that day, as did half of New York. He roots for him at every major. And that’s why he thought it might help to give it back. Mahoney approached Mickelson’s caddie during the pro-am at the Deutsche Bank Championship in Sep tember. He simply handed him an envelope that con tained the broken tee and the letter. “I will trade the tee for a photo-op,” said the letter, addressed to Mick elson and Jim “Bones” MacKay. “You can make peace with it and win the Open in 2015. Good luck.” MacKay was looking for Mahoney after the round for the photo. He never found him. Moments like these give tournament golf its texture, stories that go beyond numbers on a scorecard and trophies on a mantle. Here are more from this year’s collection of “Tales from the Tour.” Being Rory Rory McIlroy had a long day at The Players Cham pionship, and it wasn’t over when he signed his card. There was an inter view with Sky Sports, PGA Tour radio, Golf Channel, another radio station, the writers and then the PGA Tour’s website. A large crowd behind a gated section began call ing out to him as McIlroy walked away, wanting his autograph. McIlroy looked at the crowd, then at the clubhouse. That’s when his caddie, J.P. Fitzpatrick, stepped in. “Those kids over there have followed you all day,” he told McIlroy. “You need to sign for them.” McIlroy reached for the pen in his back pocket, walked over to the kids and spent the next 15 minutes with them. Chair 1, Kuchar 0 Monday at the PGA Championship was a time to get registered, maybe hit a few putts but other wise take it easy during the busiest stretch of the year. Matt Kuchar intended to do just that, and he pulled up a chair at a patio table to join Jim “Bones” MacKay, the caddie for Phil Mickelson. MacKay pointed out that Kuchar was sitting in a famous chair. OK, it wasn’t the same chair. But it’s where Rocco Mediate was sitting at Val halla during the 2000 PGA Championship. Mediate was close to qualifying for the Presidents Cup that year. The chair broke sud denly and Mediate injured an already tender back. He withdrew from the final major. He didn’t make the Presidents Cup team. That was before Kuchar joined the PGA Tour. He had never heard the story. Kuchar was running errands that afternoon when he was stuck in traf fic so long that he wound up with a sore back. Three days later, he withdrew from the PGA at Valhalla. Beware the chair. The Spieths Jordan Spieth describes her as the girl who keeps the family grounded, and the funniest member of the Spieth clan. That would be Ellie, his 14-year-old sister who was born with neurological challenges. And she was part of the entourage at the Deutsche Bank Champion ship, watching big brother Jordan on the golf course while walking with her other brother, Steven, who plays basketball at Brown. She was talking to any one who would listen about her big brothers and what they do. The gallery was held back behind the sev enth green while players and their caddies got on carts to take them to the next tee. Spieth spotted his little sister and waved her over. Ellie ran to the cart and sat on her big brother’s lap as they drove off. She looked like the happiest person at TPC Boston. And so did Spieth. Ruthless efficiency British humor has no rival in golf. At the annual caddie awards dinner at the HSBC Champions, a slide show presenting the year in golf was on the screen. Bubba Watson won the Masters. Martin Kaymer won the U.S. Open. Andrew Cotter of the BBC was the host for the dinner, and according to several caddies in atten dance, Cotter mentioned how it wasn’t long before one player took over the world of golf by winning two majors. The dramatic commen tary was accompanied by the next photo — Colin Montgomerie. A walk not spoiled On Monday after the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am, the course was filled with a few corporate partners and several members of the CBS Sports crew, mainly the staff that never gets attention or publicity for the invaluable work on the broadcast. Jim Nantz treated this Monday like any other. He lives not far from the 18th green. His wife, Courtney, was in the final months of her pregnancy. Every morning, they take as beautiful of a walk as there is in golf along the coast at Pebble Beach to the par-3 seventh green, where they were married. This walk took longer than usual. Each time Nantz passed a group from the CBS crew, they wanted to hear his commentary on their shots. Nantz delivered, as he often does. ON THE FRINGE Behind the scenes of the PGA in 2014 AP Phil Mickelson, shown here at the 2006 U.S. Open, received the broken tee from his disastrous 18th hole at that event from a fan in September. 25 turnovers in the game and struggled to get the ball past halfcourt whenever junior guard Jazlin Jones wasn’t in the game. Jones had 19 points and six rebounds to lead Arnold, while Lilyann Rob inson added 11 points and 13 rebounds before fouling out. Jones and Robinson combined for 30 of the 34 Marlins’ points after scoring all 28 in the team’s 36-point loss to Mosley on Tuesday. “It was basically Jazlin against” LaVergne, Ezell said. “Lilyann had her moments, but again foul trouble prevented her from getting into any kind of rhythm.” Miesha Lane led the Wolverines with 13 points, with Shenice Hart adding 10 points and six rebounds, and Brianna Chapman eight points. Brandi Davis scored seven. Arnold will host Niceville on Tuesday. Jordan Barrier led Moore County with 12 points and Ryan Northcutt added 11 points. OJ Hurst led the way for the Hurricanes with 11 points. Wren held an 11-10 lead after one quarter, but Moore County surged ahead 2118 at halftime and took a 34-29 edge into the fourth quarter. Moore’s lead was trimmed to one at 42-41 in the final minute, but the Hurricanes were unable to get the go-ahead bucket and the Raiders pulled away.

Chipola opens Panhandle play tonight MARIANNA — Chipola will make its first foray into Panhandle Conference play tonight when it hosts Pensacola State in the league debut for both teams. The top-ranked Lady Indians (16-0) come in as prohibitive favorites against a Pensacola State (8-7) team that’s unranked in the national and state polls. The Lady Indians have been dominant all year, outscoring opponents by an average of 44 points per game, though the Chipola men have been far less consistent. Chipola (7-10) comes in on a two-game losing streak after falling to East Georgia State and USC-Salkehatchie by a combined nine points earlier this week at Gulf Coast. The Indians will tip off against the Pirates (11-5) at 7:30 p.m., preceded by the women’s game at 5:30 p.m. Professor among 4 fired in UNC fraud RALEIGH, N.C. — The University of North Carolina’s top official said the Chapel Hill school is firing a professor who once led the faculty there for her role in the academic fraud scandal that’s rocked the state’s flagship public university. University Chancellor Carol Folt said in a letter Wednesday that philosophy professor Jeanette Boxill was notified of her upcoming termination on the same day last October that a scathing report was released. Boxill, former chairwoman of the faculty council, is appealing. The report found that fake classes allowed 3,100 athletes and other students to earn artificially high grades from 1993 to 2011. The report described Boxill as directing women’s basketball players into fake courses. The Associated Press and nine other media companies filed a lawsuit demanding the records of those who were disciplined. In response to a mediation session, the university named Boxill, an African studies lecturer who resigned and two lower-level staffers who lost jobs. Horse owner, breeder Newman dies at 85 NEW YORK — Donald Newman, a longtime thoroughbred owner and breeder with a number of stakes winners, has died. He was 85. The New York Racing Association said Wednesday he died Dec. 23 after a brief illness. Newman’s winners included Mucchina, winner of the 1978 Ashland at Keeneland Race Course; First and Only, who took the 1993 Longfellow at Monmouth Park; and So N So, winner of the 2009 Lucy Scribner at Saratoga Race Course. In the past few years, he concentrated on breeding New York-breds. Among his trainers were Hall of Famer Frank “Pancho” Martin, Tom Bush, Jose Martin and Carlos Martin. Newman lived in Roslyn on Long Island and was a sportswear manufacturer. He bought his first racehorse in 1974.

Tigers, Badgers both rebounding from tough losses TAMPA — Auburn and Wisconsin began the season with aspirations of competing in the inaugural College Football Playoff. While the 19thranked Tigers and No. 17 Badgers fell well short of that goal, they’re hardly disappointed to be playing in today’s Outback Bowl. “I think one of the things that’s over looked with bowl games is the experi ence that the players have,” said Wisconsin interim coach Barry Alvarez. Auburn (8-4) is coming off a 55-44 loss to archrival Alabama, while Wisconsin (10-3) hopes to rebound from falling 59-0 to Ohio State in the Big Ten championship and abruptly losing coach Gary Andersen to Oregon State. “Everybody talks about the four in the semifinals, and the championship game. But all these other bowls, you hear peo ple say ‘Who cares about them?’” Alva rez added. “Well, you know who cares about them? The players care about them. That experience is something you’ll remember the rest of your life.” The Badgers approached Alva rez, Wisconsin’s athletic director and the school’s all-time winningest coach, about returning to the side line to lead them in their fifth consecu tive appearance in a January bowl. He accepted a similar plea two years ago, guiding the team in the Rose Bowl after Bret Bielema left for Arkansas. “It’s important because the players asked me. That’s what we’re in this business for — the players,” said Alvarez, who hired former Pittsburgh coach Paul Chryst as Andersen’s replacement and spoke with the team about its blowout loss in the Big Ten title game. “I told them I thought it was an aberration, that we’re a good foot ball team. We won 10 games,” Alva rez said. Coach Gus Malzahn led Auburn to last sea son’s BCS cham pionship game, where the Tigers lost to Florida State. He agrees with Alvarez that post season games “can do nothing but help you.” “The way players and coaches look at bowls, no matter what bowl it is, it’s very important,” Malzahn said. championships at Florida and is two wins away from adding to his haul with the Buckeyes. If you’re looking for some perspective on what it all means, better ask someone else. “I don’t really think much about the past,” Saban said. “I always like to say, ‘Be where your feet are.’ What’s happening right now? What do I need to do to affect that? That’s where your energy is always focused.” Meyer takes essentially the same approach, though he does “try to force” him self to appreciate the good times. “Maybe when you’re younger, you don’t always do that,” the 50-year-old said. “You’re always swinging, swinging, swinging.” That’s about as far as he’ll go. Anyone who thinks Meyer softened up a bit after taking a year off from coach ing, a sabbatical he said was necessary because of the toll it was taking on his health and family, just listen to Ohio State defensive coordinator Luke Fickell. After serving as interim coach between the scandal that brought down Jim Tres sel and Meyer’s arrival, Fick ell remained on the staff at his alma mater. But Meyer was none too pleased with breakdowns in the pass defense last season, so he brought in a new cocoordinator, Chris Ash. To say that caused some bit terness would be a massive understatement. “Mad, uncomfortable,” Fickell said, describing his feelings after some of the tougher meetings with his boss. “But the reality is: That’s what makes you bet ter, that’s what makes you grow. You ask, ‘Why did you stay?’ Well, everybody wants to be challenged. Sometimes it’s not the greatest way to live your life.” Freshman quarterback Stephen Collier felt the wrath of Meyer during Monday’s practice. Getting some work with the first team, mainly to help rest the arm of starter Cardale Jones, there were a couple of plays Collier didn’t run the right way. That’s understandable, considering he started the year as a fourth-stringer and has only moved up because of injuries to Braxton Miller and J.T. Barrett. But in Meyer’s world, no excuses are allowed. “It’s very tough and uncomfortable in the beginning,” Jones said. “But when you see the results and rewards of that, you buy into it, you understand it more, and you learn to like it.” Well, that’s not entirely accurate. Meyer never wants to create an environment that anyone likes. At 63, Saban gives off the exact same vibe, though there’s one challenge he has no intention of tack ling again — the NFL. Two years with the Miami Dol phins was enough. “I learned that maybe my best legacy as a coach or a person or whatever might be better realized in college,” he said. “I never really thought about ever going back to the NFL.” It’s not necessarily been a joyful journey. It’s not for everyone, that’s for sure. But for these two, it’s the only way.

On a chilly, windy night in Silicon Valley, the Car dinal (8-5) blew past the Terrapins with the kind of complete performance that had eluded them most of the season. Stanford outgained Maryland 414 to 222 yards and looked right at home at Levi’s Stadium, only about 11 miles from its campus. It was the most points scored in a bowl game in Stanford history.

THE CONQUERING HERO The waiting was the hardest part ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — Robert Griffin III won the Heisman Trophy at Baylor. Bryce Petty was the quarter back who then led the Bears to their first two Big 12 championships. “It really means everything,” Petty said. The long wait before becom ing the starter the past two seasons was well worth it for the Texas high school player who originally planned to go to Tennessee before a coach ing change there. Petty then had to delay his enrollment at Baylor before redshirting in 2010 and two years as a backup — for Griffin during his Heis man-winning 2011 season and behind Nick Florence during a record-setting 2012 season. Petty, 21-3 as a starter and with two championship rings, wraps up his Baylor career today in the Cotton Bowl against Michigan State. “It’s been an awesome transition for just the whole team’s mentality and how we approach things to where four years ago we were hoping that we would just be able to win and now we’re upset if we don’t,” Petty said. “So it’s been an awesome ride.” The Bears (11-1) are in their first Cotton Bowl in 34 years after finishing fifth in the final College Football Play off rankings, the first team out of the four-team lineup. They have consecu tive 11-win seasons for the first time in school history. Petty’s expected Heisman campaign got sidetracked when he cracked two small bones in his back after getting hit on the open ing series of the season, then missed the second game. He also sustained a mild concussion during a game in November, but still has 3,305 yards pass ing with 26 touchdowns and only six interceptions. “He’s always been about the team first. It’s never been a ‘me-me-me’ thing, it’s always been a ‘we-we-we’ thing. He put everything else behind him,” All-America left tackle Spen cer Drango said. “The Heisman talk was great. We would have liked to see him win. But, you know, it didn’t happen for him. And you know, it never showed for us because he’s always been about what can he do for the team.” As a senior at Midlothian High in 2008, Petty verbally committed to Tennessee to play for coach Philip Fulmer. After Fulmer’s departure soon after that, Petty never heard from new Volunteers coach Lane Kiffin. That opened the door for Baylor, which had previously recruited him. The only catch was that the Bears didn’t have another scholarship at that time, so after sign ing with the Bears in 2009 he spent a semes ter taking classes at the Midlothian campus of Navarro College before enrolling at Baylor in January 2010. “That’s the craziest part about it, because if I’d gone to Tennessee, you know, I wouldn’t be here. Who knows where I’d be,” said Petty, then refer encing Tennessee being on its third coach since Fulmer. “We’ve had Coach (Art) Briles here and unbelievable people and a program that just won back-to-back Big 12 championships. So you know, God’s got a plan in it all, and that’s the coolest part of that. So to kind of see where I was at 18 and where I am now at 23 is a cool deal.” Teammates call Petty the hard est working player on the team. Sophomore receiver Corey Coleman described him as “a really good dude, a good people person” while talking about Petty staying hours after practice throwing to receivers and doing target drills. Petty, who this month finished a masters in sports management, has completed 494 of 794 passes for 7,645 yards with 59 TDs and nine interceptions for the Bears. His 14 games with 300 yards passing broke Griffin’s record, and they are tied with five 400-yard games. “The whole journey, coming to where we are today, or where I am today, has been the best part of it,” Petty said. “I wouldn’t change a thing. If I could go back and do it again, I’d do it the same way.” Baylor quarterback Bryce Petty finally out of RG3’s lengthy shadow COTTON BOWL At Arlington, Texas No. 5 Baylor (11-1) vs. No. 8 Michigan State (10-2) 11:30 a.m. today TV: ESPN B RYCE PETTY Baylor quarterback Auburn is coming off a loss to archrival Alabama, while Wisconsin hopes to rebound from falling to Ohio State in the Big Ten championship MELVIN GORDON Wisconsin RB COLLEGE FOOTBALL

SPORTS Page B6 | The News Herald | Thursday, January 1, 2015 Haslett out as Redskins’ ‘D’ coordinator ASHBURN, Va. — Jim Haslett is done as the Washington Redskins’ defensive coordinator after five seasons. The Redskins never finished better than 20th in the 32-team NFL in points allowed during his tenure. They were 29th in that category this season, and 30th a year earlier. Haslett’s departure, announced by the team Wednesday morning, is the first fallout after Washington finished 4-12 for its sixth last-place finish in the NFC East over the past seven years. The Redskins said in a news release that the team and Haslett “have mutually agreed to part ways.” Haslett joined the team when Mike Shanahan became head coach and worked under him for four years. Haslett then was kept aboard when Shanahan was fired after last season and replaced by first-time NFL head coach Jay Gruden. Suh pleased with decision to let him play ALLEN PARK, Mich. — Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh said he is “pleased” that the NFL has decided not to suspend him for Sunday’s NFL playoff game at Dallas. And that’s about all. Suh spoke Wednesday, one day after a hearing officer reduced a one-game league suspension to a $70,000 fine. “I’m just pleased with the decision,” Suh said, repeatedly saying “next question” when pressed about the move and why he was in trouble in the first place. Suh was suspended for stepping on Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers’ left leg twice last Sunday in a loss to Green Bay for the NFC North title. He stepped on Rodgers once with each foot, which violated unnecessary roughness rules, according to the league. Manning gets head start on long furlough ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — Peyton Manning said his plan was to spend the Broncos’ bye week getting healthy and he’s doing just that. The quarterback skipped practice Wednesday for the second consecutive day, something he hadn’t done since coming to Denver in 2012. Manning said after the Broncos’ 47-14 rout of the Raiders on Sunday that earning the AFC’s No. 2 seed and a first-round bye was imperative because of the team’s long list of banged up players. Ravens security chief accused of groping BALTIMORE — The Baltimore Ravens’ security director is accused of groping a woman and pressing up against her at the team’s stadium after a December game, according to court documents obtained Wednesday by The Associated Press. Charging documents filed in Baltimore City District Court said 48-year-old Darren Sanders is also accused of kissing the 34-year-old woman’s neck and attempting to force her to grab his genitals. Ravens senior vice president Kevin Byrne said Wednesday that Sanders has been placed on paid leave, per the NFL’s personal conduct policy. NFL BRIEFS OWINGS MILLS, Md. (AP) — Haloti Ngata hated watching football on televi sion during his four-game suspension for using a sub stance banned by the NFL. The five-time Pro Bowl defensive tackle wasn’t allowed to be with the Bal timore Ravens during prac tice or at their final four games. All he could do was hope they could win without him so he could play in the postseason. “It was definitely rough,” Ngata said Tuesday, his first day back on the field. “It felt like I was in retire ment watching the games, watching football during the season at home. It felt weird, but I was glad we were able to get the wins and get into the playoffs.” He regrets using the amphetamine Adderall, which is used to treat nar colepsy and attention defi cit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). Because it is often used as a stimulant, Adder all is banned by the NFL without a prescription. “I made a mistake,” he acknowledged. The 30-year-old Ngata is expected to start Saturday night in Pittsburgh, and he just might be more energetic than the blockers assigned to keep him off quarterback Ben Roethlisberger. “I feel amazing. Guys are yelling ‘Fresh legs’ all the time,” Ngata said. “I just feel like a young kid, being able to jog around. It’s great to be back with the fellas.” And they couldn’t be hap pier to have him back. “He’s one of our guys. He’s a good teammate and a good player,” quarter back Joe Flacco said. “It’s great to see him and Terrell (Suggs) walking out to prac tice together. It feels good.” Suggs wore a smile that almost matched Ngata’s. The two have been fixtures on the Baltimore defense since the start of the 2006 season and own matching Super Bowl rings. Both hope to add another to their col lection in the weeks ahead. “It couldn’t happen at a better time,” Suggs said of Nga ta’s return. “He was missed a lot in the locker room, espe cially by me. The locker room is back to being complete. It’s good to have one of the best interior linemen in the game going into a big playoff game like this. It was a big lift.” The Ravens ran a light practice Tuesday, so it was difficult to tell whether Ngata is in game shape. When he showed up at the team complex on Monday, coach John Harbaugh gave the 340-pounder a playful poke in the stomach and deemed him ready to go. “I’m sure he’s fine,” the coach said. “He’s been training. That’s what he told me. He looks good and I’m sure he is. I’m sure he’s busting out of his skin, ready to go.” Although that’s an exag geration, it isn’t that far from the truth. Ngata is thankful his teammates did their part to get him back on the field this season, and now he’s poised to pay them back. “I just feel like I owe these guys,” he said, “so I’m going to do whatever I can to help the team.” Asked if he will seek to get a prescription for the drug or just stop using it, Ngata replied, “We’ll just see what happens. Right now I’m just focused on the Steelers.” Ngata elated to return to Ravens after suspension Glad to be back AP Ravens defensive end Haloti Ngata walks off the field after practice. “I feel amazing. Guys are yelling ‘Fresh legs’ all the time. I just feel like a young kid, being able to jog around. It’s great to be back with the fellas.” Haloti Ngata Ravens defensive end WASHINGTON (AP) — When he was playing hockey on the pond of his family farm in Manitoba, Eric Fehr dreamed of winning a Stanley Cup. What he didn’t dream about was play ing outdoors in the NHL, although that eventually began to have some appeal. “When the games started coming out and you started watching them, you defi nitely thought, ‘This is pretty cool, this is something I’d like to be a part of,’” Fehr said. Fehr will play in his second Winter Classic today when he and the Washington Capitals face the Chicago Blackhawks. He already is part of NHL outdoor hockey lore because of the 2011 game in Pittsburgh. He scored two goals, including the winner, to send the Capitals past the Penguins. “He had the performance we all wanted to have,” forward Brooks Laich said. “He had the game we all wanted to have.” Fehr scored on a wraparound after Marc-Andre Fleury gave the puck away. Then he had the winner on a breakaway. “It’s still a regular-season game,” Fehr said. “Obviously it was a bit of a bigger stage, but at the end of the day it was just two goals.” Those two goals of his 80 in the NHL with the Capitals and Winnipeg Jets are the ones most people remember about Fehr. In the rain at Heinz Field, the 2003 first-round pick had something of a com ing out party. “It definitely put him on the map for some people that didn’t necessarily know Fehrsie before,” defenseman Karl Alzner said. “It’s a tough act to follow, but if anyone can do it, I would put money on him to battle hard for it.” Fehr thanked the bad ice for that night. “It was a different game,” he said. “It wasn’t a game like most.” Sun is forecast for today’s game at Nationals Park, so the 29-year-old forward isn’t promising an encore. “We’re going to let everybody else get in there and get some goals and I’m going to try to fly under the radar,” he said. Fehr has battled shoulder problems for years. He was twice a 50-goal scorer in the Western Hockey League and twice a 20-goal scorer in the American Hockey League. He has two goals in his past three games. “He’s a guy that can all of a sudden step up,” Laich said. “It’s almost like a homerun hitter can step up and just crack one. He’s got that game-breaking sort of ability to score.” Defenseman Mike Green recalls how Fehr scored those goals four years ago in Pittsburgh. “He’s one of those players that’s sort of in the weeds,” he said. “But when he needs to step up and play in big games, he does.” Washington’s Eric Fehr (16) celebrates his goal with Jay Beagle during the first period against Pittsburgh. AP NFL NHL WINTER CL A SSIC WASHINGTON (AP) — A beautiful, sunny New Year’s Day in the nation’s capital could cause a problem for the Winter Classic. The starting time of the NHL’s annual out door showcase could be postponed, perhaps up to 90 minutes, because of a forecast that calls for lots of sun and few clouds. Faceoff is scheduled for 1 p.m. today at Nationals Park for the game between the Chi cago Blackhawks and Washington Capitals. “It would be more of a player-safety issue,” NHL Deputy Commissioner Bill Daly said Wednesday. “The glare, if you’re having trou ble picking up the puck, I think there’d be a concern.” The temperature should be seasonably cool — highs in low 40s — but the direct sunlight would also deteriorate the ice. Capitals play ers, meanwhile, spoke of trying to find the right type of eye black to wear, a seemingly appropriate dilemma for an event taking place on a baseball field. This week, the shadows from the base ball stands have covered most of the rink by about 2:30 p.m., so that could be an alternative start time. Daly said a decision won’t be made until “as close to the game” as possible on Thursday. “Any delay — and hopefully there won’t be one — would be a minimal delay,” Daly said. The NHL has more incentive than usual this year to get the game going on time. For the first time, the Classic is sharing New Year’s Day with college football games that have national title implications. A long delay could put at least part of the Classic head-to-head against the College Football Playoff semifinal between Oregon and Florida State. “Nobody wants to delay the game,” Daly said. “So if there’s any way we can avoid delay ing the game, we’re going to avoid delaying the game.” The Classic has had two weather delays since the inaugural game in 2008. The 2011 game in Pittsburgh, also involving the Capi tals, was postponed until prime time because of rain, and the 2012 Classic in Philadelphia was delayed two hours because of sun. Too much sun could delay start of outdoor game Capitals’ Fehr hopes for encore
