TUESDAY January 6, 2015 First gay, lesbian couples wed in Florida MIAMI (AP) — Lesbian and gay couples were wed in Miami on Monday by the same judge who approved their marriage licenses, hours before Florida’s coming-out party as the nation’s 36th state where same-sex marriages are now legal statewide. Adding Florida’s 19.9 million people means 70 percent of Americans now live in states where gay marriage is legal. The cheers in the courthouse reflect how much the nation’s third-largest state has changed since the 1970s, when Anita Bryant, the former beauty pageant queen and orange juice spokeswoman, started her national campaign against gay rights in Miami. “It’s been a long time coming,” said Cathy Pareto, who wed Karla Arguello, her partner of 15 years. “Finally Florida recognizes us as a couple. It’s just — I don’t know, sweet justice.” Although same-sex marriage is now reality in Florida, Attorney General Pam Bondi still is pursu ing appeals at the federal and state levels. Her position — shared by former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, now considering a run for president — has been that marriage should be defined by each state. Tellingly, however, the 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals and then the U.S. Supreme Court refused Bondi’s request to extend an order blocking same-sex marriages beyond Monday, essentially giving the green light to the weddings taking place now. And Bondi’s office didn’t appear at Monday’s hearing, telling the judge by phone the state wouldn’t oppose issuing licenses during the appeals process. CHANGES COMI NG New ZooWorld owners plan new exhibits, animals By VALERIE GARMAN 747-5076 | @valeriegarman PANAMA CITY BEACH — New animals and exhibits might be on the way for ZooWorld in Panama City Beach, according to a news release issued Monday by the facility’s new owners. Kayte Wanko, a 15-year zoo veteran and registered agent of Rhynettes LLC, which finalized negotiations to purchase the property in late December, said she intends to run the park as a family business, with facilities upgrades first on the list. “We fell in love with ZooWorld the moment we saw it. Now we want to polish it up so others will notice its shine, as well,” said Wanko, who is taking over as zoo director. “New animals are a guarantee, but we want to enhance the entire package.” Family patriarch Robert “Rhyno” Rynette said the zoo business was a natural fit for Wanko and her sister. “Kayte and her sister, Jes, have both been interested in animals as long as they’ve been alive,” he said. “Kayte used to come home from school with snails in her pockets. It was no surprise when they got involved in the zoo business.” The 5.4-acre property at 9008 Front Beach Road was quietly put up for sale early last year. Rhynettes LLC purchased the property from ZooWorld Inc. for $900,000, a lower price than its 2014 assessed value of almost $1.3 million.

Bay teen seriously injured in custody DJJ worker’s actions under investigation By KATIE TAMMEN 315-4440 | @Katie T nwfdn CRESTVIEW — An investigation is underway at the Department of Juvenile Justice’s Okaloosa Youth Academy after a Panama City teenager was seriously injured last week in an incident with an employee. According to the 15-year-old’s mother, a video camera at the facility recorded her son “being thrown into a stainless steel table.” Tonya Hazel said her son complained of pain after the incident, but wasn’t taken to the emergency room until about two hours later. When he arrived, his organs were swollen and blood was filling his abdomen. His right kidney was split and ultimately removed, she said. He was initially taken to North Okaloosa Medical Center, but was later transferred to Sacred Heart Hospital in Pensacola where he remained in stable, but critical condition Monday, Hazel said. “My thing is the employee should have been able to hold his professional cool,” she said. “But he lost it on my son and damn near killed him.” DJJ Communications Director Heather DiGiacomo released an emailed statement about the incident Monday evening. She stated, “DJJ’s top priority is the safety and welfare of the youth entrusted in our care.” DiGiacomo confirmed a youth was injured in an incident Dec. 29 at the facility in Crestview, but did not release additional information, including the person’s gender or age. “The incident is currently being investigated by the Department’s Office of Inspector General,” DiGiacomo stated. “The staff member involved has been removed from all contact with youth pending the completion of the investigation.” SEE ZOOWORLD | A2 SEE G AY MARRIA GES | A2 SEE BAY TEEN | A2 Local court clerks no longer perform weddings IN S IDE | A2

Setting It STRAIGHT A cutline under a picture accompanying the “Then and Now” feature on page B5 Monday gave an incorrect address for a historic home. The house at 102 Second Place in Panama City, built about 1909, was the home of J.W. Tiller, an early naval store operator. See the Reflections page on Jan. 12 for an updated photo of the home. G AY MARRIA GES from Page A1 “The judge has ruled, and we wish these couples the best,” said Bondi’s press secretary, Whitney Ray. Bush, who opposed gay marriage while governor, also tried to find middle ground Monday, urging people in a statement to “show respect for the good people on all sides of the gay and lesbian marriage issue — including couples making lifetime commitments to each other who are seeking greater legal protections and those of us who believe marriage is a sacrament and want to safeguard religious liberty.” Gay rights advocates called it a pivotal moment for the entire country. On Friday, Supreme Court justices will decide in private whether to rule on the merits of gay marriage during their current term. “Florida is a bellwether state, and I can think of no more encouraging sign as the U.S. Supreme Court prepares to decide whether to resolve this issue for the entire country at its next conference on Jan. 9,” said Shannon Minter, legal director for the National Center for Lesbian Rights. But signs of opposition were evident farther north, where more conservative Floridians live. In Jacksonville, Duval County Court Clerk Ronnie Fussell shut down the courthouse chapel, saying no more marriage ceremonies — gay or straight — would be allowed there. At least two other counties in northeast Florida did the same. “Mr. Fussell said some of his people felt a little uncomfortable doing it,” said his spokesman, Charlie Broward. “It could cause discriminations down there (in the marriage license department) with those who are uncomfortable. We wanted to eliminate any unfairness.” Miami-Dade Circuit Judge Sarah Zabel cleared the way for the first same-sex weddings ahead of midnight, when U.S. District Judge Robert L. Hinkle’s ruling was taking effect statewide. Then, she presided over a dual ceremony, marrying Todd and Jeff Delmay moments after the lesbian couple in chambers packed with supporters and news media. The women work in investment banking, and have an adopted 2-year-old son. The Delmays, together almost 12 years, have a 4-year-old adopted son and operate an event-planning business. More weddings were planned Tuesday in large-scale ceremonies in Orlando, Tampa, Key West and Broward County. Palm Beach was preparing for a flood of applications, and a courthouse in Delray Beach was opening Monday night to officiate at a mass wedding after midnight. Florida’s constitution was amended with a 62-38 percent vote to ban same-sex marriages in 2008. But judges in Florida, as in many other states, found that such bans violate the U.S. Constitution’s guarantees of equal treatment and due process. Still, opponents weren’t giving up without a fight. Florida Family Action sued the Manatee County Clerk of Court on Monday in an attempt to block the licenses. Thirty-eight years ago, Bryant successfully campaigned to overturn a Dade County ordinance banning discrimination against gays. Two decades passed before the county commission reinstated those protections. Meanwhile, Bryant’s career suffered — as did Florida orange juice sales. She blamed the “ultra-liberal press.” “They’re saying I’m a bigot and have hatred for the homosexuals,” she said in 1977. “I don’t hate homosexuals. I love them enough to tell them the truth: that God puts them in the category with other sinners.” BAY TEEN from Page A1 Hazel said her son, who has a history of behavior problems and mental illness, was not given his medication the day of the incident and was “displaying a behavior” just before it took place. The Panama City resident has been at Okaloosa Youth Academy for about 10 months. He recently had gone before a judge and received commendations for his good behavior, Hazel said. He was slated to be released in February, she added. According to DJJ’s website, Okaloosa Youth Academy is a 38-bed center for youth “pending adjudication, disposition or placement in a commitment facility.” Hazel said an administrator from the academy has remained in contact with her since they arrived in Pensacola last week. He even visited her son Saturday. She also said an investigator from DJJ had come in and spoken with them. While no charges have been filed against the employee accused in the incident, Hazel said she wanted to see him held accountable for what he had done to her son. “Long term, it’s just going to change his whole life, and he’s only 15,” Hazel said of her son’s kidney loss. “I’m just thanking God he’s still alive.” Macs Vincil, 2, points to an iguana with his baby sitter, Mitch Hardy, at ZooWorld in Panama City Beach on Jan. 25, 2013. News Herald le photo Z OO W ORLD from Page A1 ZooWorld originally opened in the mid-1980s as the “Snake-a-Torium” and has remained a fixture in Panama City Beach. “It is exciting to be a part of something that has so much history here in the local area,” said Wanko, who has previous experience as the manager of Gulf Breeze Zoo. “I’m really looking forward to what the next 30 years has in store for this amazing, little zoo.” Wanko declined to comment further Monday because of extensive training and cleaning at the park, which was closed over the weekend, but will reopen for regular park hours at 9 a.m. today. Under its previous owners, ZooWorld operated as a nonprofit organization, but Wanko did not indicate whether the facility would keep its nonprofit status. According to nonprofit filings with the Internal Revenue Service, ZooWorld posted a net loss of about $75,000 in 2013, with charitable contributions as well as revenue from admissions and sales down from the previous year, while expenses rose. Local court clerks no longer perform weddings By BEN KLEINE 522-5114 | @BenKleinepcnh PANAMA CITY — While samesex couples can legally obtain a marriage license starting today, they will not be able to get married in most Panhandle county courthouses. Bay County stopped performing marriage ceremonies in September. “We are out of space,” Bay County Chief Deputy Clerk Jody Walls said. With expansion of the court house planned, Bay County moved probate offices where the ceremo nies were formerly conducted, next to the records office. Also, Bay County will keep the same hours today — 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. — but are prepared to continue issuing licenses in case of a line at 4:30 p.m. “We’ve had a lot of phone calls,” Walls said. “We can do 40 or 50 licenses in a day. We’ve done 40 licenses before, on Valentine’s Day.” Washington County also had space concerns when they stopped performing marriage ceremonies on Aug. 1. The clerk’s office moved out of the courthouse after it was condemned because of mold in 2013. Washington County Clerk of Court Lora Bell said the county was preparing for a large crowd before federal Judge Robert Hinkel’s ruling on Jan. 1 that clerks across the state must issue marriage licenses to samesex couples. Now she is not sure how many couples the county will serve. Regardless, the clerk of court will keep the same hours, 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Jackson, Gulf and Calhoun counties also made decisions about conducting ceremonies at the end of the 2014 fiscal year in September. Holmes stopped doing ceremonies in July and Franklin County stopped earlier in 2014. The common explanation was a lack of staffing in each department. “We stopped doing it at the end of December but we made the decision in September,” Jackson County Clerk Dale Guthrie said. “We have two employees now but we used to have three. Budgeting factors kept us from hiring another employee.” Jackson, Holmes, Gulf, Franklin and Calhoun counties are all keeping normal courthouse hours. In Walton County also, any hope of same sex couples being able to marry at the courthouse has been dashed by Clerk of Courts Alex Alford. Alford announced Monday that he and his deputy clerks would no longer be presiding over courthouse weddings of any kind. In the news release, Alford said “limited resources and facilities” had led him to make the decision. The decision was announced less than 24 hours before clerks of court across Florida will be obligated to issue marriage licenses to same sex couples. Daily News writer Tom McLaughlin contributed to this report.


By CHRIS OLWELL 747-5079 | @PCNHchriso PANAMA CITY — Ken Locke was almost killed in November 2001 when a tree fell on him and caved in his skull, but it was nothing 12 screws and six metal plates couldn’t fix. Well, 12 screws, six plates and a few puffs of marijuana smoke every day. Locke, 49, of North Carolina, was not completely healed after the life-saving surgeries; he was plagued by grand mal seizures that can result from a traumatic brain injury. “I’ve been through over 60 grand mal seizures, and since I’ve been using cannabis they’ve stopped,” Locke said. Locke said he lost more than 50 pounds after about a year taking a battery of pills, so he all but ditched pharmaceuticals entirely in 2006 and decided to rely on cannabis. About the same time, he embarked on a cross-country bicycle trek to San Francisco to raise awareness of the benefits of medical marijuana. He rode about 4,600 miles on that trip. He said he got a lot of attention from police in Kansas until he reached the border with Colorado, where medical marijuana was legalized in 2000, and where a stranger greeted him with a half-ounce bag of grass. He made a lot of friends on that trip. It was not unusual, he said, for people who met him to give him a joint when he passed through town. Local & State Tuesday, January 6, 2015 | The News Herald | Page A3 panamacitynewsherald Twitter: @The_News_Herald Empty Stocking Fund closes at $219,767 By AMANDA BANKS 522-5118|@pcnhamanda PANAMA CITY — The Empty Stocking Fund supports families in need at Christmas, but contributions did not stop on the big day. Last week, the final batch of donations brought in $1,902.09, led by $330 from Health South employees. That brought 2014’s Empty Stocking to $219,767.12 — well above the $175,000 goal. “Three years ago we were asking for help right up to New Year’s Day and for the last two years the goal was met by Christmas Day,” said News Herald Editor Mike Cazalas. “That is a blessing made possible by the generosity of the people of this area and it’s remarkable. It is hard to imagine the power and emotion of the thousands of smiles and filled bellies Christmas Day that were a direct result of everyone’s generosity to the Empty Stocking Fund. We sincerely thank each and every participant.” The Empty Stocking Fund began more than 30 years ago, when Salvation Army board member Tommy Thomas and The News Herald joined forces to bring holiday cheer to the area’s needy families. The fund has raised more than $4 million. Notable donations this year included an anonymous contribution of $35,000 and another anonymous donor whose $5 contributions rose by a penny each day for 15 days. Members of the Sampaguita Association, a local FilipinoAmerican group, collected $100 for the fund while caroling throughout the Christmas season. “I’m very gratified that the community has risen to the occasion and passed the goal,” said Bill Cramer, owner of Bill Cramer Chevrolet Cadillac Buick GMC. “It’s a real tribute to the generosity of the community.” Floyd Skinner, chairman of the Salvation Army’s local advisory board, said the Empty Stocking Fund is the local Salvation Army’s biggest fundraiser each year. “These funds are used to buy food and toys for the very needy in our community,” he said. Leftover funds are used to support the community throughout the year. TODAY’S DONORS $330 Health South, party donations from employees $150 Matthew Hablitzel D.D.S., in memory of Lt. Col.

However, the manslaughter charge against 63-year-old Charles Edward Shisler will not be the subject of his first trial. Shisler was arrested on several charges after a single round from a 9mm Luger traveled more than 200 feet into the home of his 33-year-old neighbor, Steven Justin Ayers. The stray bullet struck Ayers in the back of the head on June 17 and killed him instantly. Shisler allegedly admitted he accidentally fired the gun, but only the charge of felon in possession of a firearm will head to trial as the weapon is inspected by an independent expert for defects. That trial has been scheduled for February. A date has not been set for the manslaughter case. The Florida Department of Law Enforcement Sexual battery victim driven to Bay County before escape at store By ZACK McDONALD 747-5071 | @PCNHzack FOUNTAIN — Authorities are investigating a sexual battery and abduction after an alleged assailant drove a woman more than 8 miles to a Fountain grocery store, officials confirmed Monday. Investigators within the Calhoun County Sheriff’s Office have a person of interest and are conducting interviews from witnesses, according to a CCSO news release. However, an arrest had not been made as of Monday afternoon. Bay County Sheriff’s Office deputies initially responded to the Fountain Piggly Wiggly on U.S. 231 just before 6 p.m. Saturday after a store clerk called 911 in reference to a sexual battery. The suspect and the woman came into the Piggly Wiggly, where the woman told a store employee she had been sexually battered, BCSO officials said. The clerk called the authorities. However, when BCSO deputies arrived, the man fled on foot. The case was turned over to CCSO for investigation since the original incident occurred in Altha. A man entered a woman’s home off Walter Potts Road, where she was allegedly sexually battered. He then abducted the woman and drove her to Fountain, officials said. The victim convinced her assailant during the trip to pull over for some food before revealing her dilemma to the clerk, officials said. CHARL ES E .

News Herald staff reports FOUNTAIN Man charged with molesting 11-year-old boy A 50-year-old Fountain man has been arrested after allegedly telling investigators an 11-year-old asked to have sex with him, according to Bay County Sheriff’s Office records. John Patrick Marquardt, 50, was arrested on charges of molestation Sunday at about 9 p.m. at his Fountain home at 18134 Olivia St. Earlier that day, an 11-year-old told one of his relatives that Marquardt approached him about 3 p.m. in a grocery store and said he needed to speak with him. Marquardt walked the child across to U.S. 231 to a trailer where he allegedly gave the 11-year-old alcohol until he passed out. The child said he awoke without his clothes and Marquardt lying next to him, according to arrest records. The family then contacted BCSO. When investigators confronted Marquardt at his home, he admitted to giving the child alcohol, BCSO said. However, Marquardt told them the 11-year-old came over to his house and asked to have sex with him, BCSO reported. Marquardt made his first appearance in court Monday. He is charged with lewd and lascivious molestation on a victim less than 12 years of age. PARKER Fire chief says Parker Inn blaze was accidental Smoke was flowing from a room at the Parker Inn about midnight Sunday when Parker firefighters arrived. Firefighters contained the fire to the single room, extinguishing it in about five minutes and making sure the room was cold in 22 minutes. Parker Fire Chief Andrew Kelly said he believes the fire was started by a burning cigarette that fell to the floor. The room was rented out but the occupant was nowhere to be found. “It was an accident,” Kelly said. PANAMA CITY BEACH Man charged with sex crime with 7-year-old child Police have arrested a 31-year-old man on charges he inappropriately touched a 7-year-old child, according to a Panama City Beach Police Department press release Robert E. Griffith, 31, was arrested Monday on molestation charges, which occurred in the Palmetto Trace subdivision. Griffith allegedly touched a 7-year-old child in a lewd and lascivious manner, PCBPD said in the release. Although many of the remaining details of the case were left unclear by PCBPD, Griffith was arrested and taken to the Bay County Jail on charges of lewd and lascivious molestation of a victim less than 12 years of age. PANAMA CITY Large quantities of drugs seized; 2 women charged Police have seized large quantities of controlled substances after receiving complaints from neighboring residents of an alleged drug house, the Panama City Police Department officials announced Monday. Hannah Lee Brown, 24, and Destiny J. Leeds, 18, were taken into police custody during a search. Investigators with the PCPD Street Crimes Unit made contact with Brown and Leeds at Brown’s residence in the 2400 block of East 10th Street, after receiving complaints of possible drug activity. On the scene, police said they smelled a strong odor of marijuana coming from within the residence and obtained a search warrant, PCPD reported. During the search of the residence, investigators reported they found 1.2 pounds of marijuana, 2.3 ounces of cocaine and 788 Xanax pills. Brown was arrested and charged with trafficking in cocaine, possession of a controlled substance (Alprazolam) with intent to distribute, possession of marijuana with intent to distribute, possession of drug paraphernalia, keeping a nuisance drug house, and violation of probation. An investigation also revealed Brown had two active warrants. Also in the residence, Leeds was charged with possession of drug paraphernalia. Both women were transported to the Bay County Jail for their charges, where Brown was served with her warrants. DeFUNIAK SPRINGS Man remains hospitalized after attack by pack of dogs A man remains hospitalized this week after he was attacked by a pack of dogs on New Year’s Day. The victim, who has not been identified, remained in the intensive care unit at North Okaloosa Medical Center as of Monday afternoon, said Walton County Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman Catherine Rodriguez. He was readmitted to the hospital the day after the attack, she said. Officials said they now believe six dogs, not four, attacked the man on the morning of Jan. 1 near Girl Scout Road in DeFuniak Springs. All six dogs were removed from the owner after deputies served a search warrant at a home in DeFuniak Springs, Rodriguez said. The investigation is continuing and charges are pending, she added. Initially officials said 38 dogs were captured on the property during a search, but a recount determined 40 were living in unsanitary conditions at the home. The mixed breeds of canines range from small to large. Rodriguez said it wasn’t clear what would happen to any of the dogs as of Monday.

SPRINGFIELD City officials to examine water meter system in Alabama The Springfield City Commission on Monday approved a trip for City Clerk Lee Penton, Public Works Director Lee French and Budget Director Lauren Laramore to Bridgeport, Ala., to check out a water meter system. The system was manufactured by Zenner Water Meters and is an automatic system where readings are sent from meter to meter and eventually relayed to City Hall. The commission wants its delegates to get an honest perspective on the system from the Bridgeport Public Works director and employees who use the system every day. “I believe (the system) will pay for itself in three years,” Mayor Ralph Hammond said. Springfield is looking to replace between 100 and 150 meters in the Morris-Manor Subdivision, for which the city has received a $499,000 grant from the Northwest Florida Water Management District. The city has about 3,700 customers total and city officials will attend a workshop on Jan. 15 where Springfield will vie for a second grant. TALLAHASSEE Gov. Scott to be sworn in today for second term Gov. Rick Scott is expected to use his inauguration day speech to urge residents form other states to move here because of Florida’s lower taxes. The Republican governor will be sworn into a second term today. Scott’s swearingin is just one of a handful of events scheduled for inauguration day. Scott, however, has scaled back from four years ago. He is not holding a large black-tie inaugural ball or holding a parade through the streets of the capital. * Pr escription appetite suppr essant * Vi tamin & fat bur ner injections * EKG & blood analysis * Eat wise...dr op a size!” * E-mail: Angela@ re solutionsweightlosscenter .com Resolutions We ight Loss Center 1212 W. 23rd St. Pa nama City , FL 32405 (850) 91 3-0 00 2 MEDIC AL WEIGHT LO SS Page A4 | The News Herald | Tuesday, January 6, 2015 6 a.m Noon 6 p.m Low Hazard Medium Hazard High Hazard Water closed to public Dangerous Marine Life High Low 59/33 60/36 61/31 61/37 60/40 62/34 61/33 63/36 64/34 56/30 63/35 61/34 65/35 63/41 66/41 65/39 66/35 62/40 58/28 44/33 53/37 55/44 Windy with times of clouds and sun Mostly sunny, breezy and colder Warmer with sun followed by clouds Variable clouds 62 41 59 53 40 Winds: N 12-25 mph Winds: NE 10-20 mph Winds: NNE 7-14 mph Winds: NE 7-14 mph Winds: NW 4-8 mph Blountstown 12.48 ft. 15 ft.

Kent-Forest Lawn Funeral Home 2403 Harrison Ave. Panama City, FL 32405 850-763-4694 (FDLE) previously has test fired the pistol for functionality. Results came back positive, FDLE reported, meaning the gun operated correctly. After being arrested, Shisler told officers the shooting was accidental, according to the Bay County Sheriff’s Office arrest affidavit. “The damn gun doesn’t usually shoot,” Shisler’s arrest report quoted him as saying. “You have to squeeze the hell out of the trigger to shoot it.” Shisler told deputies he tried to pick up the gun by its trigger when it fired a hole through his window screen. According to the FDLE report, about 5 pounds of pressure was needed to set the bullet in motion toward the Ayers’ residence next door. Ayers and his wife had gathered family members to celebrate the homecoming of their 3-day-old baby — born on Father’s Day. But the celebration at 2502 Michigan Court ended shortly after 6 p.m. when the stray bullet struck Ayers. The bullet traveled out of Shisler’s window screen, through about 60 feet of medium-density woods, through the Ayers’ back porch glass door and into their home before striking Ayers in the back of the head. Shisler was arrested, and a blood test taken more than four hours after the incident indicated Shisler had a blood alcohol content of 0.079, BCSO reported. Shisler was initially uncooperative with deputies and “extremely belligerent,” according to arrest reports. Authorities filed additional charges of methamphetamine possession against Shisler the next day. BCSO allegedly found a glass pipe and “shake and bake” kit in Shisler’s residence. Both items tested positive for methamphetamine residue, authorities said. Shisler’s attorney also has filed a motion, arguing officers did not have probable cause to initiate Shisler’s arrest. LUGER from Page A3 MEDICAL MARIJUANA from Page A3 Now he’s riding again, this time through Florida, from Tallahassee to the Keys and back in time for a libertarian rally in Tallahassee on Feb. 10. His wife, Shirley, and son, Dakota, 12, have joined him. On Monday, the family pulled off the road for a few minutes to discuss their trip, which began Jan. 3. Shirley was nursing an injured wrist after a spill earlier that morning. Ken wore sweat pants and a T-shirt bearing the logo of NORML, the National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws. He said he is a daily user of cannabis, but he didn’t seem intoxicated. He wouldn’t say if he was holding any pot since he could have been talking to a cop posing as a reporter, he said. He knows he risks arrest when he occasionally ducks into the woods for a few puffs, and he didn’t want to invite an arrest, he said. But, if he doesn’t smoke marijuana, he risks painful seizures. It’s a Catch-22. It’s illegal to use marijuana in Florida, except for medical use in very limited circumstances. The Legislature passed a law allowing the use of a strain of marijuana that doesn’t get users high, but the law is now mired in bureaucracy and the timetable for its implementation is uncertain. Road companion Locke and his family are accompanied by Becky Keith, who is driving a van filled with supplies they will need during the 1,500-mile trek. Keith suffers from rheumatoid arthritis, she said, and takes medications with undesirable side effects as a result. She doesn’t use cannabis, but if the laws changed and it became legal to do so in North Carolina, Keith said she might. “I can’t go to jail,” she said. “Who would take care of all my kids?” Keith said she would prefer to use a medication that doesn’t get her high, but euphoria is not an undesirable side effect to Locke, who said he used marijuana recreationally before his injury. Except for children and certain adult patients, he said, there’s no reason to mess with the chemistry of pot. “The plant is already perfect,” he said. Locke is an Army veteran, which might be the only thing about him that doesn’t scream “hippie.” (He said he’s a hippie at heart.) But he describes himself and his family as normal people; his children are on the honor roll. “I’m not harming” the children, he said. “If I’m harming anyone, it would be myself.” Locke said he hopes Florida will change its stance on the plant, as more than a dozen other states have legalized medical marijuana and a few have legalized recreational use. He pointed out that while a Florida constitutional amendment that would have legalized medical marijuana ultimately failed to gain 60 percent of the votes cast in November, it still was supported by a majority of voters. “That’s the people’s voice,” he said.

Box 37 Panama City, FL 32402 Phone: 850-684-2050 Email: Page A6 | The News Herald | Tuesday, January 6, 2015 Viewpoints A beach view turned to mulch W e wonder if visitors to Bay County’s landfill will notice the Christmassy vibe. The county once again is collecting used Christmas trees and plans to turn them into mulch and cover for the landfill. The smart and beneficial government program will help locals shed themselves of the last vestiges of holiday decorations and do something useful with the refuse. January is a good time to point out a program like this unless you are like us and don’t take down your tree until all life has left it and the last needle has dropped. Yes, our lights stay up even longer. Residents can drop off their trees at the Sherman Avenue Recreational Complex, H.G. Harders Park or Pete Edwards Field. Businesses can drop off large quantities at the Steelfield Road Landfill or the Bay County Waste to Energy Facility. County officials say the project is a win-win. Meanwhile, you don’t have to look hard to find a lose-lose situation in Bay County. Consider the plight of Jason Roberts, a Panama City Beach property owner who, in response to criticism from his community about tenants trampling through dune sea oats and the possibility of fines from the Florida Department of Environmental Protection (FDEP), built a private walkover on Beach Boulevard. The project costing $18,000 was built to the exacting specifications of FDEP and led to criticism from his neighbors and the Panama City Beach City Council. The council is so concerned it is drafting an ordinance that would prevent anyone else from building a similar walkover in the same area. “Given the extraordinary height of the sand dunes south of Beach Boulevard, the council finds that the construction of private elevated dune walkovers will clutter the beach and its views and thus hinder the enjoyment of the beach by those using the existing beach accesses,” the proposed ordinance states. The ordinance does not provide any cover for property owners if FDEP decides to fine them because their tenants trample through the dunes instead of trekking to an access point. Beach Councilman Rick Russell proposed the ordinance and told The News Herald’s John Henderson that he believes Roberts’ neighbors about the “unsightly” view caused by the walkovers and that there are already enough access points to the beach in that area. The ultimate question in all this is who should decide when something is “unsightly” or when there are enough walkways. Should it be the City Council, FDEP, private landowners or some other entity? It’s certainly true a large structure that obstructs a view of the beach is a nuisance to other landowners. But it also appears true that Roberts was faced with a no-win scenario. Regardless, Roberts’ walkway will not be turned into mulch anytime soon. As Russell pointed out, Roberts followed the rules that were in place at the time. The City Council and Roberts’ neighbors will just have to respect that, even as they work to change the rules for any other nearby landowners. BILL DAY | Cagle Cartoons T hat, after all, is where the conversation seems to inevitably turn whenever one seeks to engage a conservative on the American habit of shooting unarmed African-American boys and men. So it was exasperating, but nowhere near surprising, to see former New York mayor Rudy Giuliani go there on Meet The Press. Asked by host Chuck Todd, during a discussion of the Michael Brown shooting in Ferguson, Mo., about the fact that African-American communities like that one are often served by snow white police departments, he offered some perfunctory words about the effort to produce more representative cop shops. But then Giuliani took a sharp turn off topic and into the brambles. “I find it very disappointing,” he told Todd, “that you’re not discussing the fact that 93 percent of blacks in America are killed by other blacks ... I would like to see the attention paid to that that you are paying to this.” There followed a sharp exchange with another panelist, author and professor Michael Eric Dyson, which produced this parting shot from the mayor: “The white police officers wouldn’t be there if you weren’t killing each other.” Somehow, he managed not to call Dyson “you people.” In nearly every other respect, Giuliani’s words reeked of a paternalistic white supremacy unworthy of a former mayor of America’s largest city — or even a sewer worker in its remotest Podunk. But again, this has become the go-to “reasoning” for those on the right — Sean Hannity, Lou Dobbs, Rush Limbaugh — when asked to give a damn about the killings of unarmed black boys and men. That formulation is false for multiple reasons. In the first place, being concerned over the shooting of unarmed black men hardly precludes being concerned over violence within the AfricanAmerican community. Giuliani and others suggest a dichotomy where none exists. In the second place, they ignore the obvious: When black people commit crimes against black people, they face prosecution, but when police officers (or certain neighborhood watchmen) commit crimes against black people, they face getting off with little if any punishment. In the third place, what exactly is “black on black” crime? Do black people kill one another? Sure they do. Ninety percent of black murder victims are killed by black assailants. But guess what? White people kill one another, too. Eighty-three percent of white victims are killed by white assailants. See, the vast majority of violent crime is committed within — not between — racial groups. Crime is a matter of proximity and opportunity. People victimize their own rather than drive across town to victimize somebody else. So another term for “black on black” crime is, crime. But there is crime and there is crime. Redlining, loan discrimination and predatory mortgages have stripped generations of wealth from the African-American community. What is that if not robbery? The Republican Party practices policies of voter suppression. That’s the assault and battery of African-American political rights. Mass incarceration criminalizes the very existence of black men and boys. That’s the rape of equal justice. Unarmed people are killed by those who are purportedly there to protect and serve them and the “just us” system looks the other way. That’s the murder of basic human rights. It is touching that Giuliani and others are so concerned about black on black crime. But African Americans have also been long oppressed by what might be called “America on black” crime. When do you suppose they’ll be ready to talk about that? ‘Black on black’ crime Our V IEW LETTERS POLICY: Provide a daytime telephone number and home address for veri cation purposes.

Box 1940, Panama City, FL 32402; or email to 49 FORUM T he News Herald editorial board chose well in differentiating good versus bad economic development as their first editorial for 2015. In “Creating Good Jobs” (Jan. 1, 2015), The News Herald reminds us that economic development by definition is about “improving the economic well-being of the community.” There is nothing inherently wrong with job creation across retail, hospitality and tourism other than Bay County is already over-reliant on that sector. Should we continue on this path we add to the already abundant base of low-paying jobs, and we set ourselves up to be hit especially hard when the next business cycle recession arrives. Let’s not forget that healthy, sustainable local economies are balanced and are not over-reliant on any major sector. Not to be confused with industry “clustering,” which is desirable and beneficial, industry over-reliance can turn harmful in a heartbeat. Take a look on how over-reliance on automotive impacted Detroit, or more recently how over-reliance on casinos impacted Atlantic City. Just because we have the nicest beaches on the planet doesn’t mean we can bury our heads in the sand. We sometimes forget that job creation (the good kind) demands that we burn the candle at both ends. This implies that we simultaneously embrace local business startups and expansion, and recruit companies from outside the region. This past year our community was fortunate to witness noteworthy improvements in commercial and residential construction, along with significant contracts that expand engineering and manufacturing capacity at the Port Panama City and Northwest Florida Beaches International Airport. Across the tech startup community 2014 saw unprecedented military outreach from Naval Support Activity Panama City and Tyndall Air Force Base, along with promising new activity at the Business Innovation Center, TechFarms, the arrival of Startup Weekend, Coffee and Conversation, and MakerLab PC. As these initiatives gain added traction during 2015, Bay County’s preponderant reliance on retail and hospitality will diminish. And that would be good economic development. ROBERT GOETZ Panama City Beach Cartoon distraction I assume, based on the recent publication of an editorial page cartoon, The News-Herald editorialists believe the Rev. Al Sharpton has blood on his hands because a mentally deranged, ex-felon shot and killed two policemen in New York City. It is truly interesting you would draw such a correlation between Rev. Sharpton’s rhetoric and the unfortunate deaths of these two brave public servants. The militarization of local law enforcement, the shooting and killing of unarmed young black men by policemen for committing misdemeanors, lack of rational gun control and inadequate, underfunded mental health services had little or nothing to do with this tragedy. No, it must be the over-heated ranting of that black preacher who has blood on his hands. Of course, if the gunman had been a NRA-loving, gun enthusiast who shot up a school full of little children, the massacre would be blamed on violent video games, his parents, his mental illness and the inadequacies of the mental health system for his rampage. Anything other than his massive collection of lethal weapons and the overheated blustering of NRA’s Wayne LaPierre. But when a troubled and violent black man, angered by one more miscarriage of justice, goes off the deep end and the innocent suffer, it’s the folks who expose the bigger, original problem who are the ones to blame. Nice distraction. DIANE J. REEVES Panama City Positive economic development requires diversity Should private walkovers be banned on PCB?

By VALERIE GARMAN 747-5076 | @valeriegarman PORT ST. JOE — Preble-Rish Consulting Engineers welcomed a new leader Monday, who brings both public and private-sector experience to the company. Cliff Wilson, who most recently served as interim secretary of the Florida Department of Environmental Protection (FDEP), took the reins from former president Ralph Rish, who will stay on with the company as board chairman. Wilson worked as a project manager for PrebleRish between 2005 and 2011, before becoming an FDEP administrator. Between 2011 and 2014, Wilson also held positions as assistant director for the Northwest Region, assistant deputy secretary for land and recreation, and deputy secretary of regulatory programs for the department. Rish described Wilson as a stand-out employee during his time at Preble-Rish. “One thing we asked when he left is to give us the first shot when he decided to get out of public service,” said Rish, adding that Wilson kept his promise after he resigned from FDEP. “He asked me what position I thought he fit into at Preble-Rish and I said mine.” Founded in 1991, Preble-Rish now has 14 offices in Florida and Alabama, and one in Haiti, where the firm is completing a series of stormwater projects. The company has about 105 employees. Rish said he sees great things for the company under Wilson’s leadership. “He’s great at business administration, business management, business development,” he said. “I just think he’ll do great things for our company and take it to levels we haven’t seen yet.” With both publicand private-sector engineering experience, Wilson said hopes to help bridge the gap between the two. “Having an opportunity to be on both sides has really helped me understand and have great visibility of the big picture,” he said. “That has been the biggest gain from my perspective, understanding the challenges ... and bridging the gap.” Wilson, a Panama City resident, said he admires Preble-Rish’s investment in the region. “One of the things that always attracted me to this firm was why they do the business they do,” Wilson said. “We have such an investment in our local communities as an engineering firm. We’ve always had the interest of our clients and our stakeholders as the top priority.” Tuesday, January 6, 2015 | The News Herald | Page A7 Precious metals (New York spot price) Gold Silver Platinum 1205.10 16.19 1210.00 +15.30 +0.40 +10.00 Business Nasdaq diary A P NYSE diary Market watch Jan. 05, 2015 Advanced: 734 Declined: 2,452 Unchanged: 63 796 Advanced: 1,955 Declined: 126 Unchanged: 3.7 b Volume: Volume: 1.7 b Russell 2000 Standard & Poor’s 500 Nasdaq composite Dow Jones industrials MAR K ET B R IE F 010515 : Cha r t s ho ws dai l y mark e t f igur e s f o r Do w , S&P, R u s s el l 200 0 an d Nasda q , alon g w ith N YSE an d Nasda q diar y ; s t and alon e ; 1 c x 4 in c h e s; ETA 6:15 p.m. E di t or’ s No t e : It is manda t ory t o in c lude all s our c e s t ha t a cc ompan y t hi s graphi c when repurpo s ing or edi t ing i t f or publi c a t io n 1,181.35 -17.45 17,501.65 4,652.57 -74.24 2,020.58 -37.62 -331.34 Source: Matt Wegner, Financial Advisor, The Edward Jones Co., Panama City 769-1278 The Dow 30 Stocks Close Chg. 3M American Express AT&T Boeing Caterpillar Chevron Cisco Systems Coca-Cola DuPont Exxon Mobil General Electric Goldman Sachs Home Depot Intel IBM J&J JP Morgan McDonald’s Merck Microsoft Nike P zer Procter & Gamble Travelers Comp United Tech Verizon Walmart Walt Disney United Healthcare Visa $160.36 -3.70 $90.56 -2.46 $33.55 -0.32 $129.05 -0.90 $87.03 -4.85 $108.08 -4.50 $27.07 -0.54 42.14 0.00 $71.72 -1.99 $90.29 -2.54 $24.60 -0.46 $188.34 -6.07 $101.26 -2.17 $35.95 -0.41 $159.51 -2.55 $103.79 -0.73 $60.55 -1.94 $92.23 -1.03 $58.04 +0.85 $46.32 -0.44 93.50 -1.53 $31.16 -0.17 $90.01 -0.43 $104.17 -1.27 $113.14 -1.90 $46.59 -0.37 $85.65 -0.25 92.38 -1.37 $99.12 -1.66 $259.17 -5.85 Stocks of local interest Darden Rest Gen.

Coal-related deaths in 2014 lowest ever The nation’s coal mines set a record for the lowest number of on-the-job fatalities last year, with 16, the federal mining agency said Monday. There were two fewer deaths than the previous low of 18 in 2009, according to the U.S. Department of Labor’s Mine Safety and Health Administration. The agency said it is the lowest annual number of coal mining deaths ever recorded. Forty miners died in 2014 in all mines, which include metal and non-metal operations. “While MSHA and the mining industry have made a number of improvements and have been moving mine safety in the right direction, these deaths, particularly those in the metal and nonmetal industry, makes clear the need to do more to protect our nation’s miners,” MSHA chief Joseph Main said in a statement Monday. The most common causes of mine deaths last year involved hauling equipment and machinery.

Bay and Jackson counties are the only other areas in Florida that currently have certified industrial sites. The Northwest Florida Industrial Park @I10 and 160 acres of the Santa Rosa County Industrial Park on Jeff Ates Road became just the third and fourth certified industrial sites in all of Florida. Santa Rosa County began the three-phase intensive process used to certify sites through Gulf Power’s “Florida First Sites” certification program in the spring of 2013. “Having land which is certified is extremely important to organizations looking to relocate, expand or begin operations as the due diligence they require to select a site is already completed for them,” said Shannon Ogletree, the county’s economic development director. “The certified information helps to expedite a decision to locate in our county and can be an important factor in opening their doors faster, creating vital cost savings for a company. “Certified sites are one more tool to make Santa Rosa more attractive in an extremely competitive economic development market,” he added. The property on Jeff Ates Road received the industrial park certification and the NWFL Industrial Park @I10 received the industrial site certification. Site Certification is used as an industry recruitment tool as it helps eliminate risk factors by providing detailed information certified by an independent third party on utilities, access, environmental concerns and potential development costs. “Santa Rosa County quickly recognized and embraced the value of the Florida First Sites program,” said Stan Connally, Gulf Power president and CEO. “With two certified sites, Santa Rosa County now has a competitive edge when working to promote the area to new and growing businesses.” In 2013, 14 sites from public and private landowners were initially accepted into Gulf Power’s Florida First Sites program aimed at helping communities prepare locations to attract new industries and new jobs to the region. Three have been certified and seven are working toward their certification. The seven remaining sites working toward certification include one each in Bay, Walton and Okaloosa counties, three in Jackson and one more site in Santa Rosa County. The remaining sites are expected to be certified by the end of February. Offer date Return from IPO Offer date Return from IPO CLIFF WILSON Strong dollar makes world travel cheaper for Americans DALLAS (AP) — Trips in Europe or Asia should be cheaper for Americans this year. Thanks to a stronger dollar. Since the middle of last year, it has been gaining against the euro, the British pound, the Swiss franc, the Russian ruble, the Indian rupee, the Japanese yen and other currencies. That means dollars go further in those countries, reducing the price of everything from a hotel room to a glass of beer. “This is one of the best times for Americans to travel in years,” said Matt Kepnes, author of “Travel the World on $50 a Day” and other travel books. Why is the dollar strong? Other economies are shaky, making their currencies less valuable. Europe is barely growing. Japan is already officially in recession. China’s growth has slowed. Meanwhile, the U.S. economy has been chugging along. Many economists expect that steady U.S. growth will compel the Federal Reserve to raise interest rates later this year, making dollar investments more attractive and leading traders to sell other currencies and buy dollars. What it means Let’s say that in June you had a charming dinner for two in Paris for 75 euros. It cost $103 then; today it would be $89. Expensive countries may not be cheap, but at least they’re more affordable now. Best bargains The euro has slumped more, making most of continental Europe an even better bargain.

WC@TriviaGuy.comWILS O N C A SEY Trivia Guy ‘Real Housewives’ star makes prison her new home The Associated Press One of New Jersey’s “Real Housewives” has gone to the big house. Teresa Giudice surrendered at the Federal Correction Institution in Danbury, Conn., at about 3 a.m. Monday to begin serving a 15-month sentence for bankruptcy fraud, her attorney said. Giudice’s last meal before turning herself in was at a 24-hour diner near the facility, according to attorney James Leonard, who drove the “Real Housewives of New Jersey” star from her home in northern New Jersey to the prison, about 90 minutes north of New York City. “The last thing she said was, basically, ‘Tell everybody I’ll be fine,’ ” Leonard said. “She was very positive, very upbeat, in great spirits.” Giudice and her husband, Giuseppe “Joe” Giudice, pleaded guilty last year to hiding assets from bankruptcy creditors and submitting phony loan applications to get some $5 million in mortgages and construction loans. Joe Giudice also pleaded guilty to failing to pay taxes totaling more than $200,000. Under terms of their plea agreements, Joe Giudice will start serving his 41-month sentence when Teresa Giudice is released, an arrangement aimed at ensuring the couple’s four daughters will have one parent at home at all times. “Teresa’s only concern is and has been that of her four children,” Leonard wrote in an email earlier Monday. “I know that she was anxious to get in and get this entire nightmare behind her so that she can return home to her family.” Leonard said that under federal sentencing rules, Teresa Giudice could be eligible to be released by December, and also could spend the last month or so of her sentence at a halfway house or under some form of home monitoring. The Giudices also are required to pay $414,000 in restitution under their plea agreement; Teresa Giudice sent the government a check for $200,000 in early October, according to court records. At the Giudices’ sentencing in October, U.S. District Judge Esther Salas criticized the couple for not disclosing all their assets as required under their plea agreement, calling it “the same pattern of obstruction, concealment and manipulation as they showed in the bankruptcy case.” Still, Salas sentenced Teresa Giudice to a sentence below the range sought by the U.S. attorney’s office and staggered her sentence with her husband’s so they wouldn’t be in prison at the same time and unable to care for their four daughters. Joe Giudice is not an American citizen, and he faces an immigration hearing when he completes his sentence and is expected to be deported to Italy. His attorney has said Giudice came to the U.S. as an infant and didn’t know he wasn’t an American citizen until he was an adult. Joe Giudice also pleaded guilty in state court in October to unlawful use of identification in a case involving a bogus driver’s license. His 18-month sentence will run concurrent with his federal sentence. Last month, Teresa Giudice sued former attorney James Kridel, whose firm handled the couple’s bankruptcy case, alleging legal malpractice and negligence. Reached by phone last week, Kridel called the lawsuit “ridiculous” and denied the claims. “We did what we were supposed to do,” he said. “We can only rely on the facts that were provided to us. I don’t wish her any ill will, but I would have preferred a ‘thank you’ rather than a lawsuit.” TERES A GIUDI C E AP A police officer walks near a truck carrying children from the home of Teresa Giudice, a cast member of Bravo’s “Real Housewives of New Jersey,” and her husband Giuseppe “Joe” Giudice on Monday in the Towaco section of Montville Township, N.J. Teresa Giudice reported to a federal prison in Danbury, Conn., on Monday morning to begin serving a 15-month sentence.


Tuesday, January 6, 2015 | The News Herald | Page A9 DIVERSIONS A ces On BRIDGE: B obby W olff Son should be sent packing with a roll of quarters DEAR AMY: I have my two kids living at home with my husband and me. Our son is 25; our daughter is 23. Both are college grads with good jobs. They make more money than I do. I work and also do all the laundry and cooking. I don’t mind having them home because I understand it is tough out there for young people. I have been charging them each $100 a month for rent, including food, utilities, laundry services, and (because they are both under 26) health insurance. My daughter has no problem with this arrangement and she is very helpful around the house when I ask. My son, on the other hand, is not helpful at all and told me, “I’m not getting my money’s worth for my $100.” On top of that, he has on numerous occasions called me derogatory names. I know I am a sap, but I am now at the breaking point. He has a totally different personality with people outside our home, so no one but my husband and daughter truly know what he is like. I don’t want to be treated like this anymore. Honestly, if my husband treated me the way my son does, my marriage would not have lasted 28 years. I need to fix this. But how? FEELING USED DEAR USED: You need to let your kids experience the world outside of your enabling embrace. Where I live, a room in a private home with shared bath and kitchen privileges can be rented for about $350/month. (No one other than a mom is generous enough to include cooking, cleaning and laundry services.) You can check your newspaper’s classifieds section or to see what the range is in your area. I suggest you begin the new year with a dose of reality. Tell your children that, starting in February, the rent for each will rise by $50 every month until it is capped at $350 each. If they don’t like it, tell them they have a month to find other housing. Give your son a roll of quarters and a box of laundry soap as a going-away present. In terms of his treatment of you, you have not only tolerated this, but you have rewarded him. Permitting him to behave this way is bad not only for you but for his own development and self-esteem. This will stop when you decide you have really had enough. DEAR AMY: I’m a senior in high school and am experiencing some friendship/relationship troubles. There’s a guy from a different school that I’ve known for a while. We have many similar interests and values. We talk often, but I don’t see him regularly because we don’t go to the same school. I’ve developed feelings for him, and I’m interested in furthering my relationship with him. The only problem is that one of my close friends has expressed a very strong interest in him. I am private about this subject, but she has told many people about her feelings for him. The guy knows she likes him and has not expressed interest in her. I’m afraid that if I tell her my thoughts, she’ll feel betrayed and will distance herself from me. I don’t want to ruin our friendship. What am I supposed to do? TORN FRIEND DEAR TORN: Your friend is a blabbermouth. If you are honest with her, she likely will broadcast this status update far and wide. However, I think it’s likely she will freak out no matter what you do, and so you should be your authentic self and attempt to keep your dignity intact. Deal with the guy directly. Be quiet, be discreet, and be prepared. DEAR AMY: So disappointed in your answer to “Disappointed Bride,” whose nephew was going to miss her wedding because of a baseball tournament! He had missed a funeral the same weekend the previous year and so she knows this is a conflict for him. She should schedule her wedding to take place on another weekend. IT’S EASY DEAR EASY: Rescheduling a wedding because of a 12-year-old’s baseball schedule is just plain dumb. Send questions via e-mail to askamy@ or by mail to Ask Amy, Chicago Tribune, TT500, 435 N.

Tuesday, January 6, 2015 | The News Herald | Page A11 Nation & World BOSTON (AP) — Some of the prospective jurors who could decide Dzhokhar Tsarnaev’s fate got their first look Monday at the young man accused of bombing the Boston Marathon, and they seemed transfixed by the sight of the shaggy-haired 21-year-old. Tsarnaev, for his part, rose to his feet and nodded, slightly and awkwardly, as he was introduced to the first group of about 200 citizens. So began what could be weeks of jury selection in the nation’s most closely watched terror trial since the Oklahoma City bombing two decades ago. Security was tight, with dozens of police officers stationed inside and outside the federal courthouse along with bomb-sniffing dogs. The potential jurors seemed riveted by Tsarnaev and by U.S. District Judge George O’Toole Jr.’s explanation of the gravity of what they will be asked to do if they are picked: They must decide not only whether the former college student is guilty or innocent, but also what his punishment will be if he is convicted — life in prison or execution. The judge told the potential jurors not to think of the trial as “an annoying burden,” but as a needed service and an “important duty of citizenship.” Tsarnaev is accused of planning and carrying out the twin pressure-cooker bombings that killed three people and wounded more than 260 near the finish line of the race on April 15, 2013. O’Toole briefly outlined the 30 charges against Tsarnaev, which include using a weapon of mass destruction. He is also accused of killing an MIT police officer as he and his brother, now dead, made their getaway. Tsarnaev, flanked by his attorneys, sat at a table at the front of the room. Wearing a dark sweater and khaki pants, he looked down much of the time and picked at his beard. He nodded to the first group of potential jurors in the morning. When he stood for a second group of 200 in the afternoon, he looked down at the floor. Over three days, a pool of about 1,200 prospective jurors will be summoned to court. Twelve jurors and six alternates will ultimately be selected. The judge said testimony in the trial will begin on Jan. 26 and last three to four months. Heather Abbott, of Newport, R.I., who lost her left leg below the knee in the Boston attack, said she plans to attend some of the proceedings. She said her biggest question might be an unanswerable one: Why? “I don’t know whether I’ll ever get any answer to that question, but I guess I want to understand what the thought process was,” Abbott said. “Why he would want to do this to people ... it’s really hard to understand.” The unusually large pool was seen as necessary because of the need to weed out those unduly influenced by heavy news coverage of the tragedy, along with the many runners, spectators and others affected by the bombings. Also, those who are unalterably opposed to the death penalty will not be allowed on the jury. Tsarnaev’s lawyers tried and failed to get the trial moved out of Boston. The first two groups of 200 people each were given instructions by the judge and then began filling out long questionnaires. The questionnaire was sealed by the judge. Beginning next week, lawyers for the two sides will question potential jurors individually. The trial is perhaps the most scrutinized terror case in the U.S. since Timothy McVeigh was convicted and executed for the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing. In Russia, the father of the Tsarnaev brothers again expressed the family’s distrust of the U.S. legal system. Recently, one of Dzhokhar Tsarnaev’s sisters pleaded guilty in Boston to misleading police during a counterfeiting investigation. “All the information that can refute the allegations against my sons is on the Internet,” Anzor Tsarnaev said by telephone from Grozny, the capital of Chechnya. “I still have children in America and I am afraid for them. As you all know, they also caused problems for my younger daughter with fabricated allegations. Who knows what they could do with my other children?” Prosecutors said Dzhokhar and his brother, Tamerlan Tsarnaev — ethnic Chechens who had lived in the United States for about a decade — carried out the bombings in retaliation for U.S. wars in Muslim countries. Tamerlan, 26, died in a gunbattle with police days after the bombings. The defense is expected to argue that Dzhokhar had a difficult childhood and fell under the evil influence of his older brother. There were no Tsarnaev supporters outside the courthouse Monday, but one man stood holding a sign calling for federal officials to be held accountable for the bombing.

Senate Republicans, winners of a majority in last fall’s elections, began laying down markers for legislative battles ahead. “Tax reform should not be used as an excuse to raise taxes on the American people,” wrote Sen. Orrin Hatch of Utah, who will become chairman of the tax-writing Senate Finance Committee. “Any such effort is a needless distraction,” he added, pointedly rejecting a long-held view of the White House and many Democrats. Tax reform was a distant target as congressional veterans and newcomers alike looked ahead to a day of pomp and ceremony beneath the Capitol Dome. Kentucky Sen. Mitch McConnell’s ascension today to the post of Senate majority leader was automatic following his approval by rank-and-file Republicans late last year. That wasn’t the case in the House, where the election of a speaker is the main event on any opening day’s agenda. Rep. Louie Gohmert of Texas put himself forward as a challenger, and about a dozen Republicans have announced they will oppose Boehner’s election. But that was far short of the number needed to place his election in jeopardy. “Rep. Boehner was selected as the House Republican Conference’s choice for speaker in November, and he expects to be elected by the whole House this week,” said his spokesman, Michael Steel.

By ROBBIE ANDREU Halifax Media Services GAINESVILLE — Former Florida starting quarterback Jeff Driskel confirmed Monday that he is transferring to Louisiana Tech for the final year of his college career. “I look forward to the upcoming chapter of my life,” Driskel said on the school’s website. “I feel like this is the best option for me moving forward with my career. I have nothing but good things to say about the University of Florida and the football program there. “I am grateful for the opportunities that have been presented to me over the course of the last four years. Although things did not play out on the field as I would have liked, I have no regrets on the choice I made to attend UF. Again, I appreciate everything that my coaches, teammates, strength coaches, athletic trainers, equipment staff, academic staff, fans and the University of Florida have done for me.” Driskel already has received his degree from Florida and will be eligible next season under the NCAA’s graduate transfer rule. At Louisiana Tech, he will be playing for Skip Holtz and on a team that went 9-4 this season. Driskel lost his starting job for the Gators after a one-sided Homecoming loss to Missouri. He came off the bench and replaced the injured Treon Harris in Saturday’s Birmingham Bowl. Driskel converted a critical third-down with a 9-yard run that enabled the Gators to run out the clock in their 28-20 victory over East Carolina. Driskel missed most of last season after sustaining a broken lower leg against Tennessee in Florida’s third game. He played for three different offensive coordinators during his four years at Florida — Charlie Weis, Brent Pease and Kurt Roper.

The truest test of the team’s merit will come Wednesday, however, with top-ranked Chipola (17-0 overall, 1-0 in league play) coming to the Billy Harrison Field House for the Lady Commodores’ Panhandle debut at 5:30 p.m. The Lady Indians assumed the top spot in the NJCAA poll on Dec. 3 and have played like the nation’s best squad all season, winning by an average margin of 46.9 points per game and routing Pensacola State 79-37 in their conference opener Saturday in Marianna. Gulf Coast coach Roonie Scovel said Chipola’s excellence has taken no one by surprise. “We’ve kind of talked about how they’ve been the team with the target on their backs since day one,” she said. “All season they’ve been the team that you’re trying to beat to get to the top. We’ve worked hard to try to get there, but the question is ‘Do we have enough?’” Not only has no one yet had enough to stop Chipola, few have been able even to be competitive. A 16-point win over Eastern Florida State on Dec. 13 is the Lady Indians’ narrowest margin of victory so far, with a 17-point victory over Central Florida on Nov. 25 the only other Chipola win by fewer than 26 points. Chipola has dominated by being excellent at both ends of the court, scoring over 87 points per game and leading the nation in field goal percentage and assists per game, while being incredibly stingy at the defensive end. Opponents have managed just 40.7 points per contest against the Lady Indians, whose aggressive trapping in the full-court and halfcourt makes it nearly impossible to find an offensive rhythm. It’s on that end of the court where Scovel said the Lady NEW YORK (AP) — Randy Johnson, Pedro Martinez and John Smoltz appear to be shooins for election to the Hall of Fame in what is shaping up as the baseball writers’ biggest class of inductees in 60 years. When the Hall of Fame reveals the results today on the MLB Network, holdover Craig Biggio and perhaps Mike Piazza could join those three first-ballot pitchers who were utterly dominant in a hitters’ era of artificially bulging statistics. Here are some things to know about the balloting, conducted again in a period when who’s elected is as intriguing as whose names were not checked by Baseball Writers’ Association of America voters: THE THREE ACES Johnson, Martinez and Smoltz stand out among the 17 newcomers to the ballot. The reed-thin, scraggly haired Johnson is a five-time Cy Young Award winner — four in a row from 1999-2002 — with 303 wins and 4,875 strikeouts. The Big Unit came up big in the postseason, too, sharing MVP honors in the 2001 World Series with Arizona Diamondbacks teammate Curt Schilling. Martinez’s antics off the field were nearly as enthralling as an ever-elusive changeup that helped him to three Cy Youngs — two AL, one NL — and a 2.93 ERA in 18 years. He helped bring the Boston Red Sox their first World Series championship in 86 years. Smoltz was a steady presence on the Atlanta Braves’ staff for 20 seasons — including 14 straight division titles from 1991-2005 — winning the 1996 NL Cy Young. A career starter, Smoltz smoothly moved into the closer role for three full seasons and earned 154 saves. He should join former teammates Greg Maddux and Tom Glavine, last year’s inductees along with Frank Thomas. The induction ceremony in Cooperstown will take place July 26.

PSJ, which captured the program’s fourth state championship last month, finished with six players on the team, as well as two others listed as honorable mentions. Mayo Lafayette was the only other program in the state to feature as many as five players earning all-state consideration. Panhandle programs were represented well with Vernon, Blountstown, Graceville and Liberty County each placing at least one player on the firstor second-team offense or defense. Cottondale and Wewahitchka each had one player garner honorable mentions. PSJ running back Jarkeice Davis landed on the first-team offense after rushing for 2,160 yards and compiling 40 touchdowns via the ground, air and return game. Davis, a senior, previously was tabbed the Class 1A year player of the year last month by the Florida Dairy Farmers Association. The Tiger Sharks were led by a pair of linebackers on the first-team defense. Junior Marcell Johnson amassed a team-best 98 tackles, and senior teammate Cole Cryderman compiled 79. Also for PSJ, senior Riley Burke and junior Will Ramsey were selected to the second-team offense as linemen, and senior Zak Riley was tabbed to the second-team defense as a defensive back.

ALL-STATE FOOTBALL sophomore Aaron Paul each were honorable mentions. Vernon finished with three first-teamers, two on defense and one on offense. Junior line backer Darrius Peterson and senior defensive back Austin Brown each landed on the firstteam defense, and lineman Mar lon Stephens was placed on the first-team offense. Senior D’Vonta O’Neal was credited as an honor able mention as a utility player. Graceville offensive lineman Chance Jowers, a senior, was named to the first-team offense, and junior teammate AJ Davis was an honorable mention as a linebacker. Blountstown defen sive lineman Steven Matthews, a junior, was added to the firstteam defense, and Tiger senior linebacker Anthony Wyrick was an honorable mention. Liberty County put two play ers — senior linebacker William Hayes and junior utility player Jar rod Beckwith, on the second-team defense. Senior offensive lineman Hunter Harrison was an honor able mention for the Bulldogs. Cottondale sophomore Ja’Vontai Hall was an honorable mention as a running back, as was Wewahitchka senior Rashard Ranie. Indians have truly separated themselves. “It’s probably their defense that’s been the best for them,” she said. “They’re very long and athletic and they’re so aggressive. They get steals and deflections, they take charges, and they really take pride in it. They really don’t let you see things with their pres sure defense. “They trap the guards and put a lot of pressure out front, so you have a hard time enter ing the ball (to the post). When you do, you don’t have long to do something with it because they’re coming. You’ve got to pass the ball, stay aggressive and be strong with the ball. They kind of break people down with their defense. I’ve seen people play with them for a half or part of a first half, but then in the second half it’s lights out.” The Lady Commodores cer tainly aren’t without weapons capable of countering the sti fling Chipola defense, with soph omore leading scorer Chelsey Gibson (17.9 points per game) providing a dynamic inside-out threat complemented by tal ented 6-foot-3 center Kristina King (16.9 ppg), and top perim eter scorer Tianah Alvarado (15.1 ppg). Freshman point guard Bri Williams also has raised her game as the season has gone on, averaging seven assists and three steals per game over the past four, giving Gulf Coast a legitimate floor general at both ends. “We can score points too,” Scovel said. “We’ve got some good players who can put the ball in the basket, so we’ll see if we can challenge them. There’s a very good reason why they’re No. 1. They’ve got a lot of weapons and a lot of things they do well.” The top weapon for Chipola is unquestionably 6-foot-3 soph omore center Evelyn Akhator, who is fourth in the country in scoring at 23.5 points per game and first in rebounding at 16.6, while also contributing 4.1 steals and 2.8 blocks per game. A true two-way force, Scovel said that Akhator’s greatest strength is not her size, skill or athleticism, but rather her nonstop motor. “She just does it all, but the biggest compliment to her is just how hard she plays,” Scovel said. “It seems like these days coaches have to spend a lot of time coaching effort, but it’s very obvious that (Chipola) coach (Greg) Franklin doesn’t have to coach her effort. She’s very self-moti vated and obviously takes a lot of pride in what she does. She plays every possession so hard. That has become a prized possession in today’s basketball —to get someone to play as hard as she does.” Scovel likely will need her team’s best in both effort and execution to come away with a win in the latest chapter of what has been the league’s best women’s rivalry for the past decade. “This is what we’ve been working for all season. It’s conference time, so it’s a whole other ballgame,” the coach said. “We’ll see if what we’ve done in these last 15 games is enough to compete. We’re going to coach as well as we can and hopefully play as well as we can and give a great effort and we’ll see what happens. “Hopefully we’ll have a great crowd. We’ll probably need that sixth-man in our fans to help us out. I hope we’ll play hard and give them something to cheer for.” ALL STATE from page B1 BASKETBALL from page B1 Hall class of 1936. With the ballot jammed by big names from the Steroids Era, the BBWAA has recommended to the Hall’s board of directors that it increase the num ber of players each voter can select from 10 to 12. That change could come as soon as 2016. THE PED FACTOR Suspected and admit ted users of performanceenhancing drugs have been on the ballot since Mark McGwire was a first-timer in 2007. But the real debate over PEDs and players’ credentials heated up when other wise certain locks Barry Bonds and Roger Clem ens became eligible three years ago. Both glamour stars severely tarnished by steroid use accusations received about 35 percent of the vote last year, a slight dip from their first ballots. Piazza, who received 62.2 percent in his second year on the ballot, and Jeff Bagwell (54.3 percent) are two players who have fallen under suspicion of use but were never caught up in any investigation. Will one more year on the ballot help them get closer to the threshold? Perhaps an enhanced ballot of up to 12 votes per writer next year will give them the nudge they need if they fail this year. CLOSING IN Biggio, the Houston Astros second basemanoutfielder with 3,060 hits, fell two votes shy of elec tion last year. Piazza, who has more homers than any other catcher in big league history, went up about 5 percent from the previous year. According to research by Baseball Think Factory, Biggio was up to 82.9 percent of the vote on 158 public ballots sourced by the website — that’s about 27.7 percent of the vote, based on last year’s totals. Piazza was at 76.6 percent late Monday afternoon. Several others on the ballot of 34 candidates are hoping to get a better look. Tim Raines (46.1 percent last year), hit .294 with a .385 on-base percentage in a 23-year career for six teams. The prototypical leadoff hitter scored 1,571 runs and stole 808 bases. Career designated hitter Edgar Martinez received 35.9 percent, Curt Schilling got 29.2 and Mike Mussina 20.3 percent in 2014. These players get only 10 years on the BBWAA ballot, recently reduced from 15 years maximum. HOF from page B1 SPORT S Page B2 | The News Herald | Tuesday, January 6, 2015 AP North Carolina’s Joel Berry II defends as Notre Dame’s Zach Auguste (30) shoots during the second half. CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) — Zach Auguste scored off a rebound with 1:07 left to help No. 13 Notre Dame hold off No. 18 North Caro lina 71-70 on Monday night. Auguste got the lead back for the Fighting Irish (15-1, 3-0 Atlan tic Coast Conference), who had led by 11 points in the second half only to see the Tar Heels (11-4, 1-1) briefly push ahead. Then Notre Dame survived two shots by preseason All-American Mar cus Paige in the final seconds, the last a desperate 3-point heave that wasn’t close as the horn sounded. Now Notre Dame is 3-0 in league play for the first time — Big East or ACC — and off to its best start in 15 seasons under Mike Brey. Auguste finished with 18 points while Pat Connaughton had 16 for the Irish, who shot 46 percent and overcame their own cold shooting down the stretch to hang on. Paige finished with 15 points for the Tar Heels, who shot 37 percent. NO. 14 WEST VIRGINIA 78, TEXAS TECH 67 LUBBOCK, Texas — Juwan Staten scored 16 points and Devin Williams added 14 to lead West Virginia past Texas Tech. Staten scored all but three of his points in the second half. The Mountaineers (14-1, 2-0 Big 12) dominated inside, getting 36 points in the paint to 18 for the Red Raiders (10-5, 0-2). Devaugntah Williams scored 21 points for Texas Tech. PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Tony Wroten scored 20 points and hit the go-ahead layup with 9.1 sec onds left to lift the Philadelphia 76ers to a 95-92 win over the shorthanded Cleveland Cavaliers on Monday night. Philadelphia had been 0-14 at home this season. Kevin Love had 28 points and 19 rebounds for the Cavaliers, who didn’t have LeBron James and Kyrie Irving with them on the trip because of injuries. They lost Dion Waiters and two reserves shortly before tipoff because of a trade. A person with knowledge of the deal told The Associated Press the Cavaliers will acquire guards J.R. Smith and Iman Shumpert from the New York Knicks in a threeteam trade that also includes the Oklahoma City Thunder. The person told the AP on condition of anonymity because the trade was not yet official. Nuggets 110, Timberwolves 101 MINNEAPOLIS — Arron Afflalo scored 34 points and the Denver Nuggets handed the Minnesota Timberwolves their 12th straight loss with a victory. J.J. Hickson had 16 points and 11 rebounds and the Nuggets shot 55 percent to cruise past the Tim berwolves (5-28), by far the worst team in the Western Conference. Jusuf Nurkic scored 14 points and Ty Lawson added 12 assists for the Nuggets, whose reserves out scored Minnesota’s 47-10. Gorgui Dieng tied a career high with 22 points and grabbed 12 rebounds and Shabazz Muham mad added 19 points and six boards for Minnesota. The Tim berwolves shot just 43 percent and have not won since Dec. 10 while playing without Ricky Rubio, Nikola Pekovic and Kevin Martin. Hornets 104, Celtics 95 BOSTON — Kemba Walker scored 20 of his 33 points in the second half and Cody Zeller fin ished with a career-high 20 points on a perfect shooting night, carry ing the Charlotte Hornets to a win over the Boston Celtics. It was just the second win in seven games for the Hornets, who learned last week that leading scorer Al Jefferson will be side lined for about three more weeks with a left groin injury. Zeller went 8 for 8 from the floor, hit all four of his free throws and improved to 6-0 against his older brother Tyler, who plays for the Celtics. Tyler Zeller had just two points in 16 minutes. Walker added five assists and five rebounds. COLLEGE BASKETBALL ROUNDUPNotre D ame edges UNC NBA ROUNDUP 76ers end home skid with win over Cavs


The Associated Press AP: Bills interview Mike Shanahan for coaching job BUFFALO, N.Y. — Add Mike Shanahan to the list of Buffalo Bills coaching candidates. Team officials, including owners Terry and Kim Pegula, interviewed the two-time Super Bowl-winning coach in San Francisco on Sun day, a person familiar with the search process told The Associated Press on Monday. The person spoke on the condition of anonymity because the Bills have not released details of their search to replace Doug Marrone, who abruptly stepped down last week. Shanahan has a 170-138 record over a 20-year coaching career, which included backto-back championships with the Denver Broncos in 1998 and ’99. He has been out of the NFL since being fired by Washington following the 2013 season. A second person told the AP the Bills also interviewed Chargers offensive coordinator Frank Reich in San Diego on Sunday. A third per son said the Bills interviewed Broncos offensive coordinator Adam Gase in Denver on Saturday. Saints sack leader Galette arrested in domestic disturbance KENNER, La. — New Orleans Saints linebacker Junior Galette has been arrested in a domestic violence case in which a woman said her face was scratched and her ear blood ied after an earring was ripped off. Police say Galette is being booked on misdemeanor simple battery stemming from the disturbance at the player’s house. Prosecutors could later charge him. Police spokesman Lt. Brian McGregor said officers arrested Galette after a 22-year-old woman called. The woman alleges that Galette and cousin Terrance Banks forcibly removed her from the home when she demanded cab fare. Banks also has been arrested. The 26-year-old player is the team’s sacks leader. He was signed as an undrafted rookie in 2010 and in September signed a $41.5 million con tract extension through 2019. Source: Raiders interview Mangini for head coach ALAMEDA, Calif. — The Oakland Raid ers have interviewed San Francisco 49ers tight ends coach Eric Mangini for their head coach ing vacancy. A person with knowledge of the interview said Monday the Raiders met with Mangini as they seek a full-time coach. The per son spoke on condition of anonymity because the team is not releasing details on interviews. Mangini has five years of head coaching experience, having spent three years with the New York Jets and two with Cleveland. He has been an assistant in San Francisco the past two years. Mangini has a 33-47 career record and made the playoffs once with the Jets. Developers that include Rams owner plan California stadium INGLEWOOD, Calif. — A development group that includes a company controlled by the owner of the St. Louis Rams announced plans Monday to build an 80,000-seat stadium in the Los Angeles suburbs that could become home for an NFL team. The proposal that could see a stadium rise on the site of a former horse track again raised the hopes of fans that Los Angeles could end its two-decade drought without a football team. It becomes the latest of numerous NFL stadium plans in the Los Angeles area since the 1994 exit of the Rams and Raiders from Southern California. The proposal stands out, however, because of the involvement of St. Louis Rams owner Stan Kroenke, whose company has entered a joint ven ture with Stockbridge Capital Group, which had been developing a 238-acre tract in Inglewood, on the edge of Los Angeles. Kroenke’s company owns an adjacent 60 acres, which would be added to the project, much of it for stadium parking. Pats’ McDaniels says Falcons interview was ‘fine’ ATLANTA — New England offensive coor dinator Josh McDaniels says his interview for the Atlanta Falcons’ coaching vacancy was “fine.” McDaniels also interviewed with the San Francisco 49ers last week. In his weekly confer ence call on Monday, he described the inter views as “initial meetings.” Meanwhile, Arizona coach Bruce Arians says the Falcons, Bears and Jets have requested permission to interview Cardinals defensive coordinator Todd Bowles. Caldwell calls for improved use of technology in officiating ALLEN PARK, Mich. — Detroit Lions coach Jim Caldwell said he believes the NFL can improve the way it uses technology and further remove the “human factor” from the way games are officiated. The Lions lost their playoff opener 24-20 to Dallas on Sunday after officials reversed themselves on a fourth-quar ter pass interference call. Referee Pete Morelli initially announced the penalty on Anthony Hitchens of the Cowboys, but then the call was taken back, leaving Detroit facing fourth down. Coaches aren’t allowed to signal for replay reviews of potential pass interference calls, but Caldwell indicated Monday he’d like to see the league allow more reviews if possible. Caldwell said he was still “angry” about the play, but he didn’t want to make excuses. The Associated Press Auburn fires defensive coordinator Harbison AUBURN, Ala. — Auburn fired co-defensive coordinator Charlie Harbi son in the latest move by coach Gus Mal zahn to reshape his defensive staff. Auburn announced the change Mon day on its website, two days after hiring former player Travaris Robinson to replace Melvin Smith as cornerbacks coach. Robinson had been an assistant on new Tigers defensive coordinator Will Muschamp’s staff at Florida. Malzahn fired defensive coordinator Ellis Johnson a day after the regular-sea son finale against Alabama. Harbison and Johnson had worked together at Clemson, Alabama and Mississippi State. Harbison, who coached safeties, served as interim defensive coordinator during Auburn’s loss to Wisconsin in the Outback Bowl. Diaz new coordinator at Mississippi State A person familiar with the decision said Mississippi State has hired Manny Diaz to be its new defensive coordinator. Diaz replaces Geoff Collins, who left the program in December to become defensive coordinator at Florida. The per son spoke with The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because an official announcement has not been made. Sports Illustrated first reported the hire. This is Diaz’s second stint with the Bull dogs — he was also the defensive coordi nator during the 2010 season. He then was the defensive coordinator at Texas for more than two seasons before being fired in the middle of the 2013 season. Diaz spent the past season as the defensive coordinator at Louisiana Tech, where he helped lead the Bulldogs to a 9-5 record. Vanderbilt hires Ludwig as offensive coordinator NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Andy Ludwig is taking over as offensive coordinator at Vanderbilt after two seasons in that role at Wisconsin. Vanderbilt announced the hire Monday in a university release that also indicated head coach Derek Mason would call the Commodores’ defensive alignments next season. Mason, a former defensive coordina tor at Stanford, said in a statement that “no one knows our defense and what we can accomplish with this defense more than I.” Former offensive coordinator Karl Dorrell and defensive coordinator David Kotulski were fired after the Commo dores went 3-9 this fall in the first season of Mason’s Vanderbilt tenure. Ludwig was offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach the last two years at Wisconsin while working for Gary Ander sen, who left last month to take over Ore gon State’s program. Bielema: Arkansas DC Smith signs new contract FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. — Arkansas coach Bret Bielema said defensive coor dinator Robb Smith has signed a new con tract with the school. Bielema didn’t elaborate on the new contract length or salary for Smith, but the signing is key for a team that improved from 76th to 10th nationally this season in total defense in their first year under the former Rutgers and Tampa Bay assistant coach. By R OBBIE ANDREU Gainesville Sun GAINESVILLE — New Florida football coach Jim McElwain made it official Monday, announc ing the hiring of six new assis tants to almost complete his coaching staff. The new hires are Randy Shannon (associate head coach, co-coordinator and linebackers coach), Kirk Callahan (second ary), Greg Nord (special teams and tight end), Terrell Williams (defensive line), Tim Skipper (running backs) and Mike Kent (strength and conditioning coordinator). Offensive line coach Mike Summers has been retained, McElwain also announced. Sum mers is the only holdover from Will Muschamp’s staff. “As we were putting this staff together, we wanted to make sure that all the parts fit for us to be successful,” McEl wain said in a UF release. “This group has the knowl edge, under standing and experience recruit ing and coaching in the South, the state of Florida and the Southeastern Conference. They are like thinkers and don’t have self-serving agendas. “They will all help our players be successful on the field, as stu dents and in life and are excited about the opportunity to join The Gator Nation. This is the first step in putting together an infrastruc ture that will put the Gators back where we belong.” McElwain still has not hired a wide receivers coach. Reports the job was going to Syracuse’s George McDonald are either pre mature or inaccurate. The Sun confirmed the hiring of Shannon, Skipper and Kent last week. Shannon, the former head coach at Miami, spent the past two seasons as the senior associate head coach and linebackers coach at Arkansas. He was the Hurri canes’ head coach from 2007-10. Shannon is known as a dynamic recruiter with strong ties in the state, especially Miami and other parts of south Florida. Williams brings NFL coach ing experience to the UF staff. He spent the past three seasons as the defensive line coach for the Oakland Raiders. Before that, he was the defensive line coach at Texas A&M (2010-11) and at Purdue (2006-09). At Texas A&M, he mentored future All-Pro defen sive end Von Miller, the overall No. 2 pick in the 2011 NFL draft. Callahan comes to UF from UCF, where he has been the sec ondary coach the past three sea sons. Callahan, the son of Seffner Armwood High coach Sean Cal lahan, was a graduate assistant at UF in 2010-11. This season, Callahan coached UCF’s first defensive All-Ameri can at the FBS level — corner back Jacoby Glenn, who was on the AP second team. He also was the American Athletic Conference co-defensive player of the year. Nord, 58, was the special teams coordinator and running backs coach at Western Kentucky this season. He has SEC coaching experience, having been the tight ends coach and special teams coordinator at Kentucky in 201112. He also spent 15 seasons as an assistant at Louisville. He has coached running backs and spe cial teams throughout his career. Skipper and Kent were mem bers of McElwain’s Colorado State staff. CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — Panthers coach Ron Rivera has more to worry about this week than his team’s upcoming NFC playoff game against the Seattle Seahawks after an overnight fire at his home left his family displaced on Monday. The Rivera family’s 7,000-square-foot, two-story Charlotte home sustained “sig nificant” damage from an early morning blaze that spewed heavy smoke and fire from the attic two days after Caroli na’s 27-16 playoff victory over Arizona. No one was injured in the two-alarm blaze, which took about an hour to extinguish. “The big thing is we’re all right,” Rivera said. “This opportunity to work and con tinue to work is very reassuring. It could have been worse. It’s kind of like (the movie) ‘It’s A Wonderful Life,’ You see things through a different set of eyes now.” Rivera and his wife, Stepha nie, along with his two broth ers and their wives were in the house sleeping at the time of the fire. All made it out safely along with two family pets. Rivera suspects the fire might have started in a gas fireplace, located on the opposite side of the master bedroom wall where he and Stephanie were sleeping. He repeatedly stressed at his news conference the importance of having a home security system or smoke alarms, saying it probably saved his family’s life. Rivera said the master bed room, family room and living room are “pretty close to being destroyed” and the insurance company estimates it will take six to eight months before they’ll be able to return to the home. He said they will stay in a friend’s private house while waiting for the house to be rebuilt. Charlotte Fire Department Capt. Rob Brisley said at a news conference Monday morning that early indications suggest the fire was accidental and “we were able to keep the damage to a minimum, meaning a lot of their household items are safe.” NFL R OUNDUP McElwain announces 6 coaching hires C OLLEGE F OOTBALL R OUNDUP Panthers’ Rivera, family not injured in fire EUGENE, Ore. (AP) — When the Oregon Ducks look back at their lone loss of the season, sure there’s lingering disappointment, but not a lot of second-guessing. Instead, some players have pointed to the Arizona loss as the turning point of their season, when they woke up and revived for their march to the national championship. “I think we learned a lot in terms of having that loss early in the year and kind of experi encing failure a little bit,” quarterback Marcus Mariota said a few games afterward. “Now that we have had our backs against the wall, guys feel the need to fight, play loose and play with high intensity.” Lesson learned, Oregon will play for the national title next Monday night against Ohio State in Arlington, Texas. The second-seeded Ducks (13-1) defeated Florida State in col lege football’s first playoffs to advance, while the fourth-seeded Buckeyes (13-1) upset Alabama. Back in early October, Oregon was undefeated and ranked second in The Associated Press poll. The Ducks were boosted by a key victory earlier in the season over Michigan State and looking to avoid the pitfalls that had thwarted them the season before, when late-season losses against Arizona and Stanford took them out of a BCS bowl game for the first time since 2008. The Wildcats were also undefeated, but unranked and 24-point underdogs. And the game was at Autzen Stadium, where the Ducks hadn’t lost since 2012. Oregon led 7-3 at halftime before Arizona freshman Nick Wilson ran for a pair of touch downs and caught another to build a 24-14 lead heading into the fourth quarter. The Ducks rallied with a field goal and Mariota’s touchdown pass to Keanon Lowe to tie the game with 8:21 left. With Arizona driving downfield, Tony Wash ington was called for unsportsmanlike conduct to give the Wildcats a first down. Then a pass interference call paved the way for Terris JonesGrigsby’s go-ahead 1-yard touchdown. On Oregon’s ensuing series, Mariota was sacked and stripped of the ball by Scooby Wright, giving the Wildcats the 31-24 win. Afterward, senior cornerback Ifo EkpreOlomu, who decided to stay at Oregon for a final year in part to give a national championship one more shot, was the voice of reason. “Every loss is a test of our character to see how we respond. Not every team in college foot ball is going to go undefeated so everyone has to learn from their losses and get better,” he said. There was talk that Mariota hadn’t been 100 percent in the loss, which he shrugged off as “typical football stuff.” In the Heisman Trophywinning quarterback’s typical even-keel style, a week afterward he — and the rest of the Ducks — had refocused.

STAT SHEET Page B4 | The News Herald | Tuesday, January 6, 2015 Prep: Arnold wins wrestling tournament GULF BREEZE — Despite forfeiting four weight classes, the Arnold Marlins took a tournament title on Monday at Gulf Breeze. Individual champions were Richie McClanahan at 126 pounds, tournament outstanding wrestler Brock Carlan at 132, Paul Patterson at 138, Brian Girard at 170 and Randy Kosack at 195. Stephen Benedik was fourth at 145 and Michael Harris second at 182. Final team scores were not available. Also: • Rutherford’s girls basketball team got 24 points from Jasmine Patterson, 11 from Takisha McElroy and 10 rebounds from Shavaria Hills to defeat Blountstown 78-26 and improve to 11-4 overall. Brianna Walker had 16 points for Blountstown. • Bay’s boys basketball team outscored Franklin County in every quarter en route to a 60-30 victory in Eastpoint and improve to 9-3. Tyler Farmer had nine points for Franklin County, 9-4. 2 U.S. ski team prospects die in avalanche Two prospects from the U.S. Ski Team were killed in an avalanche Monday while skiing near their European training base in the Austrian Alps. The team said Ronnie Berlack, 20, and Bryce Astle, 19, died in the incident near the Rettenbach glacier in the mountains over Soelden, the venue for the annual season-opening World Cup races. Berlack, from Franconia, New Hampshire, and Astle, from Sandy, Utah, were part of a group of six skiers who were descending from the 3,056-meter Gaislachkogel when they left the prepared slope and apparently set off the avalanche. The other four skied out of the slide and escaped unhurt. Braves, Pierzynski agree to 1-year deal ATLANTA — A person with direct knowledge of the deal told The Associated Press the Atlanta Braves reached an agreement on a one-year contract with catcher A.J. Pierzynski. The person spoke on condition of anonymity Monday because the deal would not become official until after Pierzynski successfully completes a physical exam, scheduled for this week. The 38-year-old Pierzynski likely will play behind 23year-old Christian Bethancourt. Evan Gattis is expected to move from catcher to left field following the trade of Justin Upton to San Diego. That cleared a path for Bethancourt, one of the Braves’ top prospects. Goal with 2.9 seconds left lifts Sharks WINNIPEG, Manitoba — Marc-Edouard Vlasic scored with 2.9 seconds remaining to give the San Jose Sharks a 3-2 win over the Winnipeg Jets on Monday night. Joe Pavelski won an offensive zone faceoff to Logan Couture, who set up Vlasic for the winning goal past goalie Michael Hutchinson. Brent Burns and Melker Karlsson also scored for the Sharks. Andrew Ladd and Jay Harrison had goals for Winnipeg in the only NHL game on Monday.
