Commissioners approved closing down all bars in the unincorporated area at 2 a.m. in March, just as the Panama City Beach ordinance calls for within the city limits. But commissioners also questioned why the early closing times are only in March when Spring Break lasts several weeks longer than that. “Why is it just March?” Commissioner Bill Dozier asked. “I don’t understand that instead of just the full Spring Break.” Commissioner Mike Thomas, whose district covers the beach, replied: “I don’t understand it, either, but that’s what they voted on.” He said he was surprised when the Beach City Council only scaled back the hours in March. “But I’ve been surprised several times lately over this,” Thomas said. “When they ask for a recommendation from the sheriff and they got it, they didn’t exactly follow it, and that surprised me.” Panama City Beach Police Chief County irked about new rules for Spring Break Commissioners say Panama City Beach didn’t go far enough GUY TUNNELL MIKE THOMAS BILL DOZIER SEE SPRING BREAK | A8 By BEN KLEINE 522-5114 | @BenKleinepcnh LYNN HAVEN — A developer is proposing closing Nature Walk Golf Club in Lynn Haven and replacing it with a residential development. But at its initial public airing Tuesday, the Lynn Haven Planning Commission rejected the idea. Developer Royal American presented a tentative plan to convert the course into 150 single-family homes, although Royal American representative John Lewis said the development likely would not have that many houses. Planning Commission member Jerry Whitworth voted against the land-use change because surrounding homeowners had bought their properties because of the golf course. A common refrain among the 13 Meadows neighborhood residents who spoke at the meeting was that their property values would decrease. “I don’t like the idea of one man coming in and changing the rules in the middle of the game,” Whitworth said. Commission member Bill Fitzgerald voted against the proposal because Lynn Haven cannot afford to lose any more green or recreational spaces. Lewis said Royal American has lost money almost every year since it purchased the golf course from the city of Lynn Haven in the late 1990s. He said it loses tens of thousands of dollars annually, even as much as $100,000. He added that no golf course operators have offered to buy the course. “Golf has just gone down,” By BEN KLEINE 522-5114 | @BenKleinepcnh PANAMA CITY — The scene was not particularly romantic.

Page A2 | The News Herald | Wednesday, January 7, 2015 & New majority runs into swift veto threat on Day 1 GOP TAKES CHARGE WASHINGTON (AP) — In a blend of pageantry and politics, Republicans took complete control of Congress for the first time in eight years Tuesday, then ran straight into a White House veto threat against their top-priority legislation to build the Keystone XL oil pipeline. Republicans condemned the unexpected announcement, which came at the same time they were savoring the fruits of last fall’s elections and speaking brightly about bipartisan compromises in the two years ahead. “I’m really optimistic about what we can accomplish,” said Kentucky Sen. Mitch McConnell, moments after he was recognized as leader of the new Republican majority on one side of the Capitol. At the other end of the majestic building, Rep. John Boehner of Ohio easily won a third term as House speaker despite attempts by tea party-backed dissidents to topple him. He said the 114th Congress would begin by passing legislation to “develop more North American energy” among top priorities, adding “We invite the president to support and sign these bipartisan initiatives into law.” It was an offer the White House could and did refuse — in advance. “If this bill passes Congress, the president wouldn’t sign it,” presidential press secretary Josh Earnest said before Boehner spoke. He said the measure would undermine a review process underway by the administration. The events spilled out rapidly on a day that offered a glimpse of the political forces at work in an era of divided government — the intraparty struggle among House Republicans, the coordination that GOP leaders in both houses showed in pursuing a conservative agenda and the blocking power of a Democratic president. There was well-choreographed pageantry as well on a day Republicans installed a 54-46 majority in the Senate and took 246 of the 435 seats in the House, the most in more than 60 years. Vice President Joe Biden presided over swearing-in ceremonies in the Senate, leading new senators and re-elected veterans alike in an ageold oath to “support and defend the Constitution of the United States.” He reserved his warmest greeting for former Vice President and Sen. Walter F. Mondale, 87, who accompanied Minnesota Sen. Al Franken down the chamber’s carpeted center aisle to an oath-taking. The House played host to a younger crowd as lawmakers were sworn in for two-year terms — children in their best clothes, babies in their parents’ arms. “Mommy, mommy,” yelled out one girl, no longer content to sit in the lap of her congressman-father. One powerful player was absent but eager to show he would be back soon. Democratic Sen. Harry Reid of Nevada, now the minority leader, issued a statement saying his doctors ordered him to stay away from his office so injuries suffered last week when a piece of exercise equipment broke “can continue to heal.” The statement disclosed for the first time that the 75-year-old lawmaker had suffered a concussion as well as broken facial bones and ribs. Republicans were eager to turn to an agenda tailored to suit conservatives. They have signaled plans to write a budget that eliminates federal deficits in 10 years or less and to pass an overhaul of the tax code as well as try and reduce federal regulations they say are stifling job creation. Hoping to smooth their path, House Republicans proposed a rules change permitting congressional scorekeepers to assume that tax cuts increase revenue to the government rather than reduce it. That would make it easier to show a balanced budget with fewer painful spending cuts. The concept, known as “dynamic scoring,” has been an article of faith among conservatives since the Reagan era three decades ago. Democratic complaints about the change vied with the Republican reaction to the Keystone veto threat. Moments after highlighting the possibility for compromise, Boehner issued a statement saying Obama had sided with the “fringe extremists” in his own party in opposing the proposed pipeline to carry Canadian oil into the United States. Said McConnell: “The president threatening to veto the first bipartisan infrastructure bill of the new Congress must come as a shock to the American people who spoke loudly in November in favor of bipartisan accomplishments.” Said Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell: “The president threatening to veto the first bipartisan infrastructure bill of the new Congress must come as a shock to the American people who spoke loudly in November in favor of bipartisan accomplishments.” AP photo YESTERDAY’S NUMBERS Cash 3 (afternoon) . . . . . . . . . . 4-0-6 Cash 3 (evening) . . . . . . . . . . . . . 1-8-7 Play 4 (afternoon) . . . . . . . . . 3-3-2-5 Play 4 (evening) . . . . . . . . . . 4-0-9-5 Fantasy 5 . . . . . . . . . . . 7-13-20-21-35 Mega Millions . 12-20-27-38-75-4-x3 Lucky Money . . . . . . . 12-24-38-43-12 Florida LOTTERY

A jury in December found Darnell Cheatham, 23, guilty of first-degree felony murder, arson, child abuse and other charges in the July 2011 death of Mariah Smith. Wayne County Circuit Judge Ulysses Boykin on Tuesday gave Cheatham the mandatory sentence under Michigan law. “My daughter is dead at 5 years old,” Konesha Smith told the judge before the sentencing. “She couldn’t enjoy her life. She couldn’t see her little brothers and sisters anymore. It hurt me so bad that I trusted him around my kids and this is the way he did me.” According to prosecutors, Cheatham took Mariah from her home, then raped and strangled her. He set her body on fire inside a vacant house about a mile from her home. MOUNT KISCO, N.Y. Officer gets jail for $90,000 in meter thefts A parking enforcement officer has been sentenced to jail for stealing more than $90,000 from meters. Authorities said Jeffrey Daday wore his Mount Kisco village uniform while depositing $190 to $600 at a time, usually in quarters, into his bank account. The thefts occurred over five years, between January 2009 and May 2014. Westchester County District Attorney Janet DiFiore said Tuesday that Daday was sentenced to up to six months in the county jail followed by 4 years of probation. Suspicious bank workers alerted police to Daday’s deposits. Investigators then put him under surveillance, and he was seen emptying coins from meters into his pants pocket. CINCINNATI Sheriff: Fifth body found from trailer fire A southeast Ohio sheriff said a fifth body has been recovered from the site of an early morning mobile home fire. Fairfield County Sheriff Dave Phalen said the adult’s body was found Tuesday afternoon, hours after the fire was reported. Authorities earlier found four bodies, including that of a toddler, but had said they had information that one more adult was unaccounted for. Two other people who were inside the home were hospitalized. There was no update on their conditions Tuesday. Neighbors reported hearing an explosion just after 4 a.m., but those reports and the fire’s cause remain under investigation. WASHINGTON (AP) — Earth has a few more near-twin planets outside our solar system, tantalizing possibilities in the search for extraterrestrial life. Astronomers announced Tuesday that depending on definitions, they have confirmed three or four more planets that are about the same size as Earth and are in the not-too-hot, not-too-cold “Goldilocks Zone” for liquid water to form. These planets are likely to be rocky like Earth, and not gas giants or ice worlds. They get about the same heat from their star as we get from the sun, according to the latest results from NASA’s planet hunting Kepler telescope. But don’t book your flights yet. They might be close to Earth in size and likely temperature in the gargantuan scale of the universe, but they aren’t quite close enough for comfort. Consider two of the new planets, the nearest to Earth discovered to date. If they have atmospheres similar to Earth’s — a big if — one would be a toasty 140 degrees and the other would hover near zero, said study lead author Guillermo Torres, an astronomer at the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics. Life conceivably could evolve and adapt to those temperatures, he said. Oh, and they aren’t actually within commuting distance of Earth. Those two are 500 and 1,100 light years away; a light year is 5.9 trillion miles. What’s important, said SETI Institute astronomer Douglas Caldwell, a study co-author who presented the findings at the American Astronomical Society meeting in Seattle, is that astronomers are a bit closer to finding twins of Earth and answering the age-old question: Are we alone? “These planets do exist; we didn’t know that before,” Torres said. “What we’re really looking for is signs of life eventually. We’re not there yet. It will take many years but this is the first step.” Astronomers to Earth: You’ve got some newly found near-twins SHANGHAI (AP) — Some wailed and some staggered with grief as relatives of the 36 people killed in Shanghai’s New Year’s Eve stampede visited the disaster site Tuesday for seventh-day commemo rations that are a revered ritual in China. But each family was allowed to stay only about five minutes in the tightly managed visits, and govern ment workers roughly dragged away one middle-aged woman when she began crying out emotionally. The government’s strict arrange ments reflect efforts to keep tight controls over the disaster’s after math and prevent distraught rela tives from coalescing into a critical group that would draw sympathy and galvanize public calls for greater accountability. “Such a major public safety inci dent can tug the heartstrings of the public, and the acts and words by victims’ relatives can make the pub lic sentiments swing, making it a key task for authorities to control the families, limiting their contacts with each other or with the media,” said Zhao Chu, a Shanghai-based independent commentator. “Struck by the same tragedy, the relatives can easily resonate with each other, and it’s only natural they want to band together to take col lective actions and make collective appeals to the public, and that could mean the authorities losing control over the social sentiments.” The authorities’ grip over such sentiments comes at the expense of the victims’ families, Zhao said. “The method is brusque toward the fami lies, preventing them from resorting to law and to the media, but — in a positive way — it can indeed allevi ate the shock to the public.” As families grieve, China manages public emotions AP A man holds a portrait of a New Year’s Eve stampede victim Tuesday as he and others mourn over the death of their loved one at the site of the tragic accident in Shanghai, China.

Georgia Gov. Nathan Deal said the company accepted an incentive package from the state but said he couldn’t discuss the details. The Fulton County Development Authority met briefly Tuesday to discuss its own incentive package for Mercedes’ estimated $93 million facility but provided no details. The decision comes after weeks of lobbying — some of it public — by New Jersey officials who sought to keep the company in Montvale, at a campus about five minutes from BMW’s North American headquarters. About 1,000 jobs are to be moved starting in July. The company said it will move first to a temporary facility in Atlanta before moving into a new space in about two years. Deal and Georgia economic development officials would not discuss the location Mercedes is pursuing in metro Atlanta. Mercedes-Benz USA President and CEO Stephen Cannon said the company will benefit by being closer to its growing base of customers in the Southeast as well as its port in Brunswick, Ga., and its manufacturing facility in Alabama. He also said the quality of life, schools and cultural options in Atlanta were reasons to move there. Other recent Georgia projects in the automotive industry include the construction of a new U.S. headquarters for Porsche near Hartsfield-Jackson Airport and Kia’s first U.S. manufacturing facility about 75 miles southwest of Atlanta. Executives have cited access to the world’s busiest airport for employee travel and to the state’s ports for shipping. Deal credited the state’s access to that infrastructure and an insistence on cooperation between economic development, utility and education officials for the results.

That’s why all the folks on rocky top Get their corn from a jar.” “Rocky Top” University of Tennessee Fight Song That Texas and Clemson’s Dabo Swinney are at the top of my post holiday football list may come as a surprise, as neither made the first playoff. While my living room resonated recently with fight songs and touchdowns, I cocooned with HGTV and perused a fascinating article in Forbes Magazine about the business of college football. Texas finished this regular season 8-4, but a year ago, the Longhorns were a wildly profitable enterprise. Texas was first in program worth and merchandise sales and enjoys the most “lucrative school specific TV deal” in the country, according to Forbes. The Longhorns’ football program was worth $139 million at the end of last season, about 20 percent more than second place Notre Dame. Rounding out the top 10 in net worth a year ago were Alabama, LSU, Michigan, Florida, Oklahoma, Georgia, Ohio State and Nebraska. My individual coaching hero is Clemson’s Dabo Swinney. If Clemson fires him before his contract is up, Swinney’s buyout clause requires the Tigers to ante up some $21 million. If I’m Dabo, I’m hoping I get the axe. In many respects, big time college football mirrors the American economy. CEOs of extremely successful corporations are rewarded with incredible salaries and bonuses. Meanwhile, middle class families are struggling to make ends meet, even when two partners work full time and contribute to household income. Nick Saban, Mark Richt and perhaps Jim McElwain (we’ll see, right?) are worth their salaries to the Tide, the Bulldogs and the Gators, respectively, because if they win big, the university wins financially. Football profits can support academics and nonrevenue sports. It’s unclear who said it first, but major college football often represents “the front porch” of a university, or the most visible part of the school. If the front porch has curb appeal, enrollment applications ascend and alumni donations flow. Alabama grossed $110 million a season ago, made a $45 million profit, and contributed over $6 million to academic programs. Florida profited by $47 million. Georgia generated $91 million in revenue and generated a $40 million profit. But the University of Alabama Birmingham, with a 6-6 record, announced two months ago that it is dropping football for financial reasons. Fielding a team is apparently financially feasible only if it’s a publicity-generating, donation-inducing, winning machine. So for some programs, the financial reality is win big or go home. Meanwhile, a new program is being started at the University of West Florida in Pensacola. Will it lead to increased exposure, new enrollment applications and generous alumni donations? Go Argonauts!

McDowell Arbor Outlook WASHINGTON (AP) — Plunging oil prices have hurt American companies in the short run, but increased U.S. production means that the country is on the path to become a global leader in oil produc tion, the head of the U.S. oil and gas industry’s top lobbying arm said Tuesday. Falling oil prices have empowered the United States and weakened OPEC and Russia, said Jack Gerard, the CEO of the American Petroleum Insti tute. The result is that increased U.S. production in North Dakota and elsewhere has “fundamentally reordered the world’s energy markets,” he said. Stocks in energy companies have tumbled as oil prices have dropped in recent weeks. But Gerard, speaking Tuesday at an annual “State of American Energy” event in Washington, said price fluctua tions haven’t affected the long-term prospects for oil demand. “The price today has some impacts ... but longer term you will see the demand for our product con tinue to grow,” he said. “I can’t predict the price. But what it clearly shows is what we’re doing in the United States has implications for the global market and the U.S. market.” Oil group CEO: Amid price drop, U.S. set to be global leader The Associated Press FRESNO, Calif. California breaks ground on bullet train as climate solution California broke ground Tuesday on its $68 billion high-speed rail system, promising to combat global warming while whisking travelers between Los Angeles and San Francisco in less than three hours. The bullet train project, the first in the nation to get underway, faces challenges from Republican cost-cutters in Congress and Central Valley farmers suing to keep the rails off their fields. Others doubt the state can deliver the sleek system as designed, and worry it will become an expensive failure. But Gov. Jerry Brown said high-speed rail is essential to meeting his latest goal: Encouraging the nation’s most populous state to get half its power from renewable energy by 2030. “It’s not that expensive. We can afford it. In fact, we cannot NOT afford it,” Brown said before signing a symbolic section of rail.

Page A6 | The News Herald | Wednesday, January 7, 2015 Viewpoints Tim Thompson, Publisher Mike Cazalas, Editor S. Brady Calhoun, Editorial Page Editor 747-5075 | @sbradycalhoun T he rise of gay marriage in America is reminiscent of the fall of the Berlin Wall. The political cracks that eventually led to a tide of humanity climbing and destroying the wall were well established long before Nov. 9, 1989. But thanks to a growing resistance, a political miscalculation from the Politburo and an unwavering belief that the sentries on the wall would back down, the wall was destroyed by a sea of humanity in one fateful night. The actual, official demolition of the wall did not begin until the summer of 1990 and demolition wasn’t complete until 1992. That was merely housekeeping, though. In the same way, the battle over gay marriage in America is over. What is left now is simply legal housekeeping. Florida is the 36th state in the union to approve same-sex marriage. In our state, that change happened through a series of decisions from judges that overruled a 2008 constitutional amendment that banned the practice. Attorney General Pam Bondi is appealing those rulings in state and federal courts but it seems unlikely that gay marriage will be outlawed. If the United States Supreme Court wanted to overrule the lower courts on this matter, it has had plenty of opportunities to do that. In the same way, the newly minted Republican Congress could work together to amend the United States Constitution and end gay marriage. That seems both unlikely and politically damaging for the Republicans. The tidal wave of changes to the law — it’s been 10 years since Massachusetts became the first state to approve gay marriage — has coincided with a change in public opinion on the topic. Last year, Gallop reported that 55 percent of the people they polled approved of gay marriage. In 1996 only 27 percent approved. And sometimes, it should be noted, it does not matter what the public thinks about an issue. The courts overruled the public on this issue just as they did on laws that forbade people of different races from marrying and countless other laws, like voting requirements, that were written for the sole purpose of discriminating against certain segments of society. Whether the government can discriminate against certain minority groups will almost assuredly come into sharper focus as some of the Christians who strongly opposed gay marriage will now be placed in stressful situations. The first stop will be the courthouse, where licenses are issued and, traditionally, where people could choose to have a simple ceremony and be married by a clerk of courts employee. However, in Bay County and several surrounding counties, courthouse officials stopped performing such ceremonies last year around budget time, saying they could no longer spare the staff time and space. Gay marriage supporters likely will find the timing of all these “resource issues” to be suspicious. In Duval County, they don’t have to be suspicious about the motive, Duval County Court Clerk Ronnie Fussell told the Florida Times-Union they are no longer performing marriage ceremonies due to the ruling, saying, some of his staff felt uncomfortable with same-sex marriages. He added that by ending all marriages, court officials still were following the law. It won’t end there. The next battleground likely will be at small bakeries, photography studios and anywhere else where a religious person might decline to offer services to homosexual couples. Will the courts rule that business owners cannot be discriminatory and must offer services? This will be similar to the ongoing struggle between some pharmacists who refuse to fill contraceptive prescriptions because of their religious beliefs. In some states, pharmacists are legally required to dispense any and all contraceptives that have been approved by the FDA, but other states leave the pharmacist with the discretion over what he or she will do. The change in opinion on gay marriage grew in part from a belief that most of us do not wish to intrude on someone else’s life and the understanding that personal religious convictions — including those that require some to abstain from alcohol or pork, or from working on Sundays — should not be forced on people of other faiths or those with no faith. The question that will soon be before us is whether the tolerance that was once requested by some groups will be extended to those with deeply held beliefs that might now find themselves in a shrinking minority. Our V IEWN A TE BEELER | The Columbus Dispatch Uber and regulation I f you’ve ever stood on a cold street late at night wishing desperately and hopelessly for a cab, Uber is the answer to your prayers. Its pricing model, which includes higher fares at times when demand peaks, is designed to make sure you get a ride whenever you need it. But instead of seeing this option as heaven-sent, some riders damn the company as Satan’s spawn. On New Year’s Eve, Uber boosted its New York City fares nearly eightfold to ensure the supply of drivers needed to meet high demand. Some partygoers accepted the offer rather than take the subway, wave forlornly at occupied cabs or stagger home. The New York Daily News reported that several angry customers posted receipts showing charges of well over $100, with some vowing to boycott Uber. “The most expensive 8 minutes of my life!“ fumed one. She was not the first person ever to do something on New Year’s Eve that she regretted afterward. To critics, this episode illustrates the perils of under-regulation. “Surge pricing“ is just one. Passengers have been raped by drivers and had their privacy compromised. Pedestrians have been hit by drivers whose insurance may or may not cover them. “The public safety is at risk,“ said Illinois state Rep. Mike Zalewski, sponsor of a bill to impose statewide restrictions. “It makes sense to have a basic set of bottom-line regulations.“ Does it really? The ride-sharing companies are creating a new market, which inevitably brings mistakes and failures on the way. But the only reason for their existence is the welfare of their customers. If they damage that, they endanger their own survival. From the news coverage of customers allegedly attacked by Uber drivers, you might forget that rapists are also found driving taxis. In October, a Chicago cabby got a 35-year sentence for sexually assaulting two passengers. Getting into a vehicle with a stranger can always lead to a bad outcome. But there are no compelling reasons to believe that ride-sharing is any riskier than taking a cab — and some grounds to think it’s safer. Uber claims it undertakes background checks that are “often more rigorous than what is required to become a taxi driver.“ But it announced a tighter system only after the Chicago Tribune reported in February that it had failed to conduct these checks on thousands of its drivers. Uber may learn slowly, but it does learn. The bad publicity it gets from criminal drivers gives it a powerful incentive to take strong measures to avoid them. Passengers have another protection: records, on their smartphones, of who picks them up and where. That feature deters crimes by drivers by making it easy to identify and find them. If you hail a cab on the street, you get in without knowing who’s behind the wheel — and if you disappear, no one else may ever know. Being able to summon a ride with a smartphone app does carry risks to your privacy that flagging down a taxi does not. Uber got so much blowback from a blog item about its data on customers who had used the app after one-night stands — to avoid the morning “walk of shame“ — that it took down the post. But in a competitive market, protecting privacy can be good business. The question is whether passengers really care about Uber’s trove of information about them. If strictly safeguarding privacy is valuable enough to influence consumer choices, ridesharing companies will do it. The insurance picture is slightly hazy because drivers aren’t necessarily covered by Uber’s policy in an accident between fares. “It could be a long and complicated process for an injured person to determine how to get compensated,“ Janelle Orsi, an Oakland lawyer, told the San Jose Mercury News. But that determination will eventually be made, individually and collectively. That’s what courts are for. Insurance companies will respond. If drivers and companies disregard their potential exposure, they may pay a painful price. Uber has made its share of mistakes. When an executive talked about investigating the personal lives of unfriendly journalists and using derogatory information against them, he deserved the ensuing avalanche of criticism. But such offenses have to be weighed against the millions of rides Uber provides each month. Heavy government regulation produced a rigid, widely resented taxi industry, whose persistent inadequacies gave rise to a useful and popular alternative. Could be a lesson in that. Steve Chapman is a member of the Chicago T ribune editorial board and a columnist with Creators Syndicate. Man-made climate change is not a real problem M an-made climate change advocates have many of us in such a frenzy that the polar vortex of last year may be indicative of a “tipping point at this pivotal moment in history,” a recent comment in our local paper. I wonder what caused the Minnesota storm of 1888? It started as a mild day, children in school, people working outside. An abrupt cold wave struck with blinding snow, the temperature fell to minus 37 degrees Fahrenheit, children went home early from school and many people died. It was perhaps Minnesota’s worst blizzard. If that happened today, we would be outlawing all the coal plants and cars in the world! Consider a few of the many arguments that could be made by any rational person: Fifty years ago, extreme pollution existed in many cities in the U.S. Today the Clean Air Act of 1970 has resulted in substantial reductions in most pollutants (except CO2, which recently was declared a pollutant; it is the food of corn and soybeans and trees!), while electric power generation by coal has almost doubled. There are 4 pounds of CO2 per 5 tons of the atmosphere and a half pound of that is due to fossil fuels. Can the trace element CO2 be causing all the atmospheric trouble? At most 15 percent of the CO2 in the atmosphere (that’s about 0.6 pounds of that 5 tons) comes from the burning of fossil fuels (coal plants, vehicles, trains, ships, etc.) with the remainder from the oceans, volcanoes and other sources. There are more polar bears living today than a number of years ago; The ice caps in Antarctica are growing while ice is slowly melting in the Arctic. The world’s temperature has risen 0.6 degrees Celsius in the past 130 years (it has not changed significantly in the past 10 to 15 years even though CO2 has definitely risen). Corn and soybean prices doubled while millions of acres were used to convert food to fuel. This increased price has resulted in increased starvation in the poor nations with the worst to come (many politicians want to substantially increase the use of ethanol). Solar and wind energy are available only when the sun is shining and/or the wind is blowing. Backup power plants are needed to meet peak demand. These plants operate at a lower efficiency when solar and wind are inputting energy. Lower plant efficiencies lead to increased pollutants, off-setting the questionable benefits of solar and wind. Assume we switch primarily to ethanol and other biofuels: A major factor that is not included in such a conversion is that this would require millions of acres that now grow trees and other vegetation to be put into crops from which the biofuels are made. That vegetation would no longer eat up the CO2 that is assumed in the models that use ethanol as the primary fuel. By using food crops to generate fuels, starvation will substantially increase amongst the extremely poor billions. The U.K. and Germany are leading the way in this climate concern, resulting in electricity costing about two to three times what we pay. That’s where we want to go? It results in the poor getting poorer with extremely serious problems ahead. Rather than $200/month for the electric bill, try $600/month! And this is to solve a problem that might not exist? Europe and the U.S. (the CO2 enemies) have 800 million people with 6.4 billion in the rest of the world. The added CO2 produced by India and China as they build more coal-fired power plants, more industries, and drive more vehicles will offset any decrease in the small trace of CO2 that we are spending billions to save. If we stop all CO2 production in the U.S. and Europe, those other nations would add more CO2 than we would save! Are we straining at a gnat and swallowing a camel? MERLE C.

NATIO N & WORLD Wednesday, January 7, 2015 | The News Herald | Page A7 RICHMOND, Va. (AP) — For mer Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell, once on the short list to be Mitt Romney’s vice presidential run ning mate, was sentenced Tuesday to two years in federal prison for taking bribes to promote a dietary supplement. The punishment was far below the 10 years prosecutors initially wanted, but still more than the community service the former governor, his defense team and hundreds of sup porters argued for. In a strong but somber voice, McDonnell told the judge before sentencing that he was “a heartbro ken and humbled man” and that he holds himself accountable. “I allowed my life to get way out of balance,” he said. Some family members and friends wept softly as McDonnell addressed U.S. District Judge James Spencer. For a few, the tears turned to smiles when the judge announced the sentence. McDonnell was stoic. A jury in September found McDonnell and his wife, Maureen, guilty of public corruption. The couple accepted gifts including a $6,500 engraved Rolex watch, $20,000 in designer clothing and accessories, and free family vaca tions in exchange for promoting a purported miracle cure made by Star Scientific Inc. The company’s former CEO, Jonnie Williams, testified under immunity as the prosecution’s star witness in a case that exposed the details of the McDonnells’ shaky finances and troubled marriage. At the six-week trial, the former governor said he began working unnecessarily late, just to avoid his wife’s angry outbursts and begged her to work on their deteriorat ing marriage. Defense attorneys claimed Maureen McDonnell developed a “crush” on Williams and was largely responsible for the couple’s cozy relationship with Williams. NEW YORK (AP) — For mer Gov. Mario Cuomo’s legacy as a liberal champion and powerful orator was remembered at his funeral Tuesday by one who knew him best — Gov. Andrew Cuomo, his son. “At his core, he was a philosopher. He was a poet. He was an advocate. He was a crusader. Mario Cuomo was the key note speaker for our better angels,” the younger Cuomo said in a eulogy that spanned his father’s background as the son of immigrants, his biggest speeches and his basketball prowess. The former three-term governor — who flirted with but never made a presiden tial run and turned down an opportunity to be nominated for the U.S. Supreme Court — died Thursday, hours after his son was inaugurated for a second term. Dignitaries including Bill and Hillary Rodham Clin ton and Mayor Bill de Bla sio gathered to mourn the 82-year-old Democratic Party icon and honor his legacy. Dozens of police officers stood at attention in front of St. Ignatius Loyola Church, and a pipe and drum corps played solemnly as Cuomo’s casket was carried inside. Pallbear ers included Cuomo’s younger son, CNN newscaster Chris Cuomo. On Monday, hun dreds waited in a line that stretched more than a block at Cuo mo’s wake. Vice Presi dent Joe Biden, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi and actor Alan Alda were among those who paid tribute. As governor from 1983 to 1994, Cuomo was recognized for his eloquence and for pow erful appeals for social justice that blended liberal ideals with his life experience as the son of an Italian immigrant grocer. He was known for his deliberations over running for president, which earned him the nickname “Hamlet on the Hudson.” He came close to running in 1988 and 1992 but decided not to. Why? “Because he didn’t want to” and loved being gov ernor, Andrew Cuomo said in a heartfelt speech that mixed political legacy, personal memories of his “pops” and calls to move the state for ward in his father’s footsteps.

Page A8 | The News Herald | Wednesday, January 7, 2015 FROM THE FRONT Drew Whitman said after the meeting that he does think some of the new laws will work. “I believe this will help us in trying to control the crowd a little more,” he said. He said the “city is heading in the right direction” by adopting the new laws and regulations. After this Spring Break, offi cials can review how it went and decide whether to back off from some regulations or adopt new ones. “I guarantee some things will work,” he said. “Hopefully we can improve each year. Doing something is better than nothing.” The department this year will have four drug-sniffing K-9 dogs patrol the beach, as opposed to one the last Spring Break. Alcohol on beach On his list of recommendations, Sher iff Frank McKeithen recommended that drinking on the beach be banned dur ing Spring Break. But the Beach coun cil balked, saying it could end up killing Spring Break, which has an economic benefit. Commissioner Guy Tunnell ques tioned whether the county might expand on the Spring Break measures adopted by the city to send a message. “Do you think we ought to set the tone for this?” Tunnell said. Thomas responded he didn’t think it would make any difference. “We asked (city officials) unanimously to follow the sheriff’s recommendation,” Thomas said. “But the truth is that the clubs that form whatever image we get in Spring Break are all located in the city of Panama City Beach, and no matter what we do as a body to change those laws, it doesn’t change the image.” He added that “the city is truly the face of Bay County, and they are going to portray whatever image we look like dur ing that period of time.” In the end, the commission approved changes to ordinances and codes to mir ror those Spring Break laws approved by the Beach council, which had passed 17 measures to tone down this coming Spring Break. One change approved by county com missioners Tuesday would require people drinking alcohol on the beach to have a photo identification. The commission also approved an amendment to its water safety code that would prohibit digging large holes on the sandy beach. Panama City Beach city officials have said illegal activities have taken place in the holes in years past. Scooter ordinance The commission on Tuesday also approved an amendment to its scooter ordi nance so the requirement that people wear vests while riding a scooter only applies on county roads. Panama City Beach earlier changed its ordinance so it only applies on city roads. The change was to position the city to better defend a lawsuit brought by a scooter operator. Dozier said the vests do improve safety for scooter riders. “These vests do help when you are out there and see them riding,” he said. After the meeting, commissioners con tinued to say Panama City Beach should have gone further in its regulations. “I understand that (Spring Break) is a big part of the economy, but I think we’ve got to do something to bring all of this under control,” Tunnell said. “I’m tired of not addressing it, not deal ing with the issues,” he added. “It’s about time we did something.” Thomas said when the city asks the sheriff for recommendations to tone down Spring Break, it should follow that advice. “It’s like asking your lawyer (for advice) and not following it. That part I didn’t under stand,” he said. He said he would have preferred stronger laws to tone down Spring Break initially. “I think it would have been better to have come out stronger and then back up a little bit as we go further than start out soft,” he said. Commissioner George Gainer said com missioners agreed with the sheriff’s recom mendations, including banning drinking on the beach in March, and he wished the city would have gone along with them. When told city officials balked at ban ning drinking on the beach out of concern it would kill Spring Break, he replied with a grin: “Boy, can you guarantee us that?” SPRING BREAK from Page A1 “It may not be romantic, but it is new,” Johnson said. “I had to look up some of the specifics.” Brannon and Johnson were the first couple in the Bay County Courthouse to get a marriage license Tues day. Brannon had the advan tage of being a Bay County employee, working in the county probation office in the annex building. She and Johnson already were inside as four couples waited in the 45-degree chill. “I’m nervous,” Johnson said. “I thought this day would never come.” Brannon and Johnson met 10 years ago when they worked for Beverly Enter prises in Fort Smith, Ark. After a stop in Colorado, with Johnson working in correc tions, they chose to move to Bay County in 2006. They decided to have the wedding ceremony Saturday, and Brannon will take Johnson’s name. The date has bittersweet significance because it was the day Johnson’s mother died two years ago. Her mom was extremely supportive of her relationship with Bran non. One instance that stands out was when the elder John son called to wish Brannon a happy birthday but decided not to talk to her daughter. “It’s not her birthday, is it?” Johnson recalls her say ing. “Nobody meets (Bran non) and doesn’t like her.” On their way into the office, the couple received congratu lations from Brannon’s coworkers. Johnson said her co-workers at a local correc tional institute were equally supportive. Kristen and Rhonda Apperson were the second couple that rushed in when the courthouse opened. Kristen Apperson said they wanted to get there early in case of a large turnout. Together for 13 years, they originally met in Alabama. “I don’t think we slept,” Rhonda Apperson said of the reason for their early morn ing arrival. Bay County Chief Deputy Clerk Jody Walls said the early-morning turnout was exactly what the office could handle. “It looks like we’ll be ready for the demand,” Clerk of Court Bill Kinsaul said. The Appersons were joined by Lola Bloomquist and Cynthia Havel-Bloomquist in front of the north-fac ing courthouse steps. Both couples had notaries public perform ceremonies at the courthouse. Tina Ray performed the ceremony for Bloomquist and Havel-Bloomquist, who have been together 14 years after they met through friends. Havel-Bloomquist said their primary motivation was to secure all parental rights in taking care of their 1-year-old son, Liam. “We jumped on it,” HavelBloomquist said of being at the courthouse early. “Why wait a second?” The couple are Pan ama City natives. HavelBloomquist knew a change to marriage equality was com ing and thought it might come a little sooner. Still, she feels there is more acceptance of gay couples now, especially because she was once fired for being gay. “The older generation has a predilection about what they think you’re supposed to be,” Johnson said. “Even if they disrespect you, don’t disrespect yourself.” Lewis said. “We’re trying to make lemonade out of lemons.” The course, which is open to the pub lic, was active Tuesday afternoon just an hour before the meeting. Four men were on the driving range and several groups were starting their rounds. Kirsten Johnson, who works in the snack shop, estimated the course had 200 golfers Tuesday, based on computer records. Snowbirds Diane Cormier of New Bruns wick, Canada, and John Schwandner of Springfield, Ill., were among the players that included weekly regulars Ryan Ransburgh and John Trevillian, both of Callaway. “There’s no way the course is not making money,” Ransburgh said. “In the summer time, it’s hard as hell to get a tee time.” With an avalanche of public criticism — the Lynn Haven Commission room was packed with two rows of people standing behind the normal allotment of chairs — Lewis suggested tabling a decision until a traffic study is completed. Lewis viewed traffic as a top priority. There was a motion to table the land-use change, but that was voted down 3-2. Whit worth then made a motion to approve it, but that died for a lack of a second. Resident Elizabeth MacLean said the subdivision had only three proposed entrances — Harvard, Farrell and Bob Jones Roads. Royal American engineer Sean McNeill said the increase in traffic on State 390 would be less than a 1 percent. But MacLean countered that the engineer did not con sider the traffic change for the Meadows neighborhood. The Planning Commission vote is a rec ommendation to the City Commission, which will consider the issue next Tuesday.

Food B Section panamacitynewsherald Twitter: @The_News_Herald PANAMA CITY NEWS HERALD WEDNESDAY January 7, 2015 By JAN WADDY 747-5072 | @JanWaddy1 PANAMA CITY — Getting back into the school and work routine this week doesn’t have to mean breaking New Year’s healthy resolutions or your budget for quick meals. But coming up with meals to cook that are healthy, cheap, easy and taste good can be a challenge. On Friday, I stopped by the Bay County Extension Office, 2728 E. 14th St. in Panama City, and borrowed a copy of Purdue University Cooperative Extension Service’s cookbook “Eat Right for Less: Nutrition on a Budget,” a project of the Indiana Nutrition Education Programs and Purdue University Cooperative Extension. While planning my grocery list for this week, I scanned the Main Dishes section for kid friendly recipes my 8-year-old son might eat. “Usually when we talk about saving money, planning is extremely important,” said Marjorie Moore, Bay County Extension director and Family and Consumer Sciences agent at UF/IFAS Extension. “Plan your meals. Once you plan, take an inventory of what is on hand and compile a shopping list, or you are more likely to spend more.” Not sticking with the shopping list also can be costly, especially if you go on an empty stomach, which my husband did on Saturday. “Eat before you go,” Moore added. I already had everything I needed on hand for the cookbook’s recipe for Rosemary Lemon Chicken Breasts, except chicken. A 5-pack of bone-in chicken breasts cost us $10.68 at Wal-Mart. “Plan meals based on My Plate. Half should consist of fruits and vegetables, proteins make a fourth, and another fourth of grains,” Moore said. My Plate guidelines also recommend a small side of dairy. For more on the guidelines, including recipes and Sample 2-Week Menus for eating on a budget, visit . “Meat can be seafood, leaner-type fish and poultry, of course, with white meat having less fat. Lean meats like beef that have tougher cuts usually have less fat, and ground beef should be mostly 90 percent lean,” Moore said. “Even ground turkey, you have to be careful with the fat content.” According to “Eat Right,” freezing ground beef in its original packaging is OK for up to two weeks: “If you plan to store it longer, remove it from the original package and wrap it in freezer paper, aluminum foil, or a zip-top freezer bag to prevent freezer burn.” A slow cooker can do wonders for tough meat, which is often cheaper, and a healthy option in a pot full of vegetables. “Eat Right for Less” has a recipe for Juicy Pot Roast With Vegetables that calls for 1 3-pound boneless beef rump roast. But it also calls for carrots, which my son doesn’t eat unless they’re swimming in broccoli cheese soup. White meat chicken can be dry, but according to the cookbook, “the skin helps keep the meat juicy and moist while it cooks.” On Sunday, I went ahead and made all five servings of the Rosemary Lemon Chicken Breasts, preparing three in one baking dish and two in another. I sliced a fresh Meyer lemon, a gift from a friend, then tucked two thin slices under the skin of all five and still had a few slices left over for iced tea. Large sprigs of fresh rosemary from our backyard garden under the skin also made for a nice presentation. “If you grow your own herbs, it will probably be cheaper and taste better, too,” Moore said. One baked chicken breast was enough for me to split with my son. “It’s not just good; it’s awesome,” he said. “It has a lot of flavor, and it’s white” — which is significant because he usually prefers dark meat chicken. We served it with steamed broccoli, a side of spinach fettuccine with Parmesan, and salad. As my son was taking his plate to the kitchen counter, I asked him if he really liked the chicken. His response — “I cleaned my plate.” We still have three leftover pieces for another meal, recipe or sandwiches. Herbs add a lot of flavor to dishes, but if you don’t grow your own, buying them can add up. Moore suggests buying two or three different herbs to use in many different recipes. “Basil goes good in a lot of things, and thyme is another one,” she said. “Oregano goes with a lot of Italian and meat dishes. Use it on pizza and pasta dishes.” Though most of our meals at home center on meat, I know that’s not always the best option. “You don’t always need to buy meat,” Moore explained. “Find other low-cost protein sources. Dry beans and beans can be mixed with some type of grain. We just had black-eyed peas for New Year’s. Mix it with rice, and it’s a pretty good protein source. Add a green vegetable to the meal. Soup recipes are good, especially while it’s cold. Sometimes for a starch, you can add a noodle. There are Crock Pot recipes that are healthy. You could even do a vegetable soup in your pot. Look for fruits and vegetables in season for best cost.” Winter selections include beets, Brussels sprouts, cabbage, carrots, celery, kale, leeks, lemons, onions, oranges, potatoes, turnips and, of course, winter squash. “If you can’t get fresh, look at frozen. Stores do a lot of good sales on frozen,” Moore said. “And you can buy canned without added salt.” Store brands also help cut cost. If you need more meal inspiration, check out what is on sale at grocery stores for the week. Pair it with a coupon for more savings. (But don’t buy something you wouldn’t normally buy just because you have a coupon for it.)

Wednesday, January 7, 2015 | The News Herald | Page B3 Don’t you think happy Squalls are more fun? People get all excited over snowbirds, who’s signaling, the TDC and now gay marriage. You can’t change it. So stop worrying about it. Don’t like gay marriage? Don’t get one. Gay marriage is just another nail in the coffin of America. Anybody ever read how Rome died from the inside? Lincoln warned us, too. Congrats to the gay and lesbian couples who wed in Florida. Finally, Florida has entered the 21st century. About time. Canceling my subscription to the news. I couldn’t care less about gay-lesbian marriages and the majority of your paying customers don’t, either! Gay couples don’t interfere with straight couples’ lives. It’s all in the mind that they do. They love. They care. Just like everyone else. County commissioners want to vent about Spring Break? They have had almost a year to vent and they have done nothing! Selling both mowers. Now have a yard full of goats and rabbits. They will take care of business. Don’t you wish you’d thought of that? As long as the sun shines it can be as cold as it likes. The colder weather is a nice change from the incessant heat of the summer months. P.C. relies on sun, sand and ocean as far as tourism goes. It’s not the be all and end all for every visitor, though. They are not catered for. Panama City/Bay County is a bad place? You’re never coming back? Good first start in making it a better place. Many thanks. TDC does a great job overcoming numerous obstacles. Most obstacles caused by people who hate anything that makes Bay County visitor-friendly. Back to cold temps — but to compensate, North Bay is brilliant blue, seabirds are fishing, fun to see in early a.m. through my French doors. Readers sound off Squall Line appears daily.

S quall L ine Local & State panamacitynewsherald Twitter: @The_News_Herald By JOHN HENDERSON 522-5108 | @PCNHjohn PANAMA CITY — Cocoa Beach City Manager Bob Majka will be the next Bay County manager if he and the county can agree on a contract and he can pass a background check. Bay County commissioners on Tuesday unanimously agreed to offer the job to Majka, the assistant county manager of Bay County from 2006 to 2012. Majka previously said he would be interested in returning to the county. Current Assistant County Manager Dan Shaw has agreed to fill the interim role. County Manager Ed Smith told commissioners Dec. 15 he would retire earlier than he anticipated from a position he has held for more than nine years. Smith, who held the job longer than any other county manager, cited family reasons for the abrupt retirement and his decision to move to South Carolina. He said he already had planned to retire in the spring. The commission agreed to gauge Majka’s and Shaw’s interest in the job rather than advertise the opening. Commissioner George Gainer was the only commissioner who expressed some reservation Tuesday about the vote to hire Majka. “I’d much rather have seen us open this up to other people, especially anybody in our staff who would want the job, but to keep (the) board unanimous, I’ll vote ‘yes,’ ” he said. Shaw had expressed an interest in the job and submitted an application, but later withdrew his name from consideration. Majka moved to Bay County as a teenager in 1986 when his father was stationed at Tyndall Air Force Base. In 1989, he began working in local government as a hazardous materials firefighter. In 1993, he joined Bay County as the hazardous materials program manager, advanced to become the emergency management division manager and Caryville woman dreams of building a home for special needs son Majka offered county manager job BOB MAJKA SEE COUNTY | B4 By ZACK McDONALD 747-5071 | @PCNHzack PANAMA CITY — A Panama City Beach man who stole golf carts from his neighbors has been sentenced to more than a year in prison after the charges were upgraded to three counts of grand theft auto, according to court documents. Nathan Michael Huston, 38, initially was charged by the Bay County Sheriff’s Office with three counts of grand theft, dealing in stolen property and uttering a forged instrument after three golf carts came up missing Nov. 23 near his home at 21310 Front Beach Road. Prosecutors filed grand theft auto charges against Huston days before he pleaded no contest Tuesday,.

Lance C. Elliott, 43, of Callaway, was arrested Monday on a warrant from the Jan. 1 hit-and-run incident near the 200 block of Tyndall Parkway. Two of Elliott’s three passengers were hurt, according to Bay County Sheriff’s Office arrest records. Man charged after hit-run crash, injuries NATHAN HUSTON SEE GOLF CARTS | B4 SEE HIT-RUN | B6 LANCE C. ELLIOTT By JENNIFER RICH 628-9092 | @Jenni_Rich CARYVILLE — Sonya Christenson loves to watch her son, Jesse, play with his monster trucks outside in the dirt. Now that Jesse is 33, life with her special needs son has presented the devoted mom with some big challenges. “He’s a handful. He’s a big guy and he’s very strong,” Christenson said. “I’m pretty much the only one that can control him.” Jesse is childlike in most ways. He likes to color, make crafts, build with Legos and watch his favorite TV show, “The Dukes of Hazzard.” “I’m Bo Duke in the General Lee,” Jesse said as he strolled through the house. His mother had to translate what Jesse said with such enthusiasm. Jesse was born healthy in South Dakota, but showed signs of delayed development from the beginning. Christenson said her son didn’t sit up on his own until he was about 2 years old and didn’t take his first steps until after his second birthday. At the same age, Jesse caught pneumonia and spiked a fever so high it caused permanent brain damage. Today, Jesse lives with a diagnosis of autism and other intellectual complications. Christenson describes her son as having the mind of an 8-yearold boy living in the body of a 33-year-old man. She accepts her life with Jesse and sees the silver lining in it. She knows she never will have to experience an empty nest. “He’ll have to live with me for the rest of his life. He’ll never be able to live alone,” she said. Jesse is a gentle giant. He loves to give hugs and talk about the projects he stays busy with in his room. He works three days a week with The Arc, an organization with a chapter in Washington County that advocates for the rights of people with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Jesse earns a tiny paycheck each month that his mother helps him spend on new crafts to make or to add to his impressive collection of toy trucks. “I spoil him rotten,” Christenson said. “Who else would?” Christenson said Jesse is content most of the time, but it can be challenging to live with him when he is destructive. Home damage As a condition of Jesse’s autism, he has tantrums that — when combined with the strength of a grown man — literally have destroyed the interior of the 25-year-old singlewide mobile home Christenson struggles to keep habitable. Christenson had replaced the windows in Jesse’s play room and bathroom four times before deciding just to staple sheets of plastic to the windows. “I put four sets of windows in his room and in his bathroom because he keeps breaking them,” she said. “Now, he has four layers of plastic stapled to the wall to make his window because I’m tired of buying glass.” Plastic-covered windows that do little to keep out the elements are only the beginning of the patching and modifications Christenson has completed. Jesse’s personal domain in the home is a bedroom at one end of the trailer that he uses as a play room. In there, he sometimes entertains himself by picking at holes in the walls and ceiling. Christenson pointed out numerous places where Jesse had punched a hole in the drywall during a tantrum, then later pulled out the insulation and exposed the electrical wiring while occupying himself. “I’ve been in this home ‘This is my normal’ Photos by PATTI BLAKE | The News Herald Jesse Christenson does a needlepoint craft in his room Dec. 26. Sonya Christenson looks over damage to the wall in her son’s bathroom. Christenson takes care of her 33-year-old mentally disabled son, Jesse, in their home in Caryville. WANT TO HELP?

Majka was not at Tuesday’s meeting. Bay County Human Resources Director Amy Cooper told com missioners that Majka has had several notable accomplishments in his job in Cocoa Beach. “He led a team that completed over $21 million in wastewater treatment plant improvements,” Cooper said. “He developed the city’s first five-year strate gic plan and he developed and implemented the city’s first ad valorem tax abatement incentive program, along with many other accomplishments.” Majka’s contract with Cocoa Beach calls for him to give the city three months notice, but Coo per said that is not set in stone. “He said they are willing to be flexible,” she said. County Attorney Terrell Arline outlined the typical contract agreement the county enters into with county managers. He said the annual salary is $146,918. Majka said in a letter to the com mission that he would accept the typical compensation for a county manager. The job also includes a car allowance.

Naval Support Activity Panama City requested the project. Approved a $200,000 defense infrastructure grant with Enterprise Florida Inc. for the expansion of the Bay County Intelligent Transportation Sys tem for Tyndall Air Force Base along Tyndall Parkway from Ivy Road to just west of the Dupont Bridge. The proposed project includes the extension of fiberoptic cable infrastructure and the installation of a “dynamic message sign” to alert motorists of gate conditions and possible road closures. COUNTY from Page B3 GOLF CARTS from Page B3 and Nov. 26 fell under a “motor vehicle” classification. One of the carts was returned to its owner after it was spot ted in a wooded area in the 200 block of 13th Street in Panama City Beach along with the other two Nov. 23. The person report ing the whereabouts of the golf carts said two men were in the woods with them. However, when deputies arrived only one golf cart remained, according to the BCSO arrest affidavit. Days later, the owner of one of the other two golf carts told BCSO he had seen it in front of Huston’s home, officials reported. Huston told investigators he bought the two golf carts via the online classified website Craig slist. Huston then recanted that story and said he purchased them through a “friend of a friend” but couldn’t remember the names, BCSO reported. Authorities only recovered one golf cart from Huston’s home, and he was arrested on three counts of grand theft auto. CAPE CANAVERAL (AP) — SpaceX called off a supply flight to the International Space Station on Tuesday because of rocket trouble, another delay in the delivery of groceries and overdue Christmas presents. The countdown was halted just over a minute before launch when a steering mechanism in the rocket malfunctioned — “behaving strangely,” as SpaceX chief Elon Musk noted via Twitter. The soonest SpaceX can try again to launch the unmanned Falcon rocket is Friday morn ing, provided it can quickly fix the problem. NASA took the latest ship ment delay in stride, while the company faced three more days of anxious waiting for its unprecedented rocket-landing test — attempting to fly back the main booster to a platform in the ocean. The Dragon capsule is loaded with more than 5,000 pounds of food, science experiments and equipment for an upcom ing series of spacewalks, as well as belated holiday surprises for the six station astronauts. The station pantry took a hit when another company’s supply ship was destroyed in a launch explo sion a few months ago. Space station commander Butch Wilmore said the six crew members ran out of condiments a month ago, and he’s yearn ing for some yellow mustard to spice up the food. He and his crewmates were watching the launch countdown just before sunrise live via a video feed from Mission Control in Houston. Rocket problem postpones launch

Jesse paid for it all with his SSI.” Jesse collects $721 a month in Supplemental Security Income, which his mother used to pay off the mobile home they have lived in since 1996 and the 10.59-acre property. Christenson said the mobile home no longer can stand up to the destruction. Evidence of endless repairs exist in every room. A little help Christenson was relieved when the Tri-County Community Council replaced the walls in Jesse’s room with plywood paneling and put a new front and back door on her home, but it’s not enough. Even with all of the modifications, the home is not an ideal place for someone with Jesse’s special needs. He is very sensitive to his environment and has frequent seizures. Christenson said the slightest shift in room temperature, sound or emotional extremes can trigger a seizure. Christenson has a vision for the home she dreams of living in with her son one day: one that will not trigger seizures and one that can stand up to the “Jesse experience.” “I want my bedroom back,” Christenson said. The single 52-year-old mother shares her bedroom with Jesse, who sleeps in a twin bed beside hers in case he seizes in the middle of the night. “I would like us to have separate bedrooms with an adjoining door, like what’s in a hotel room,” she said. Christenson said she simply wants a safe home for Jesse that will allow them the space they need to live comfortably, considering she can’t work and must stay home around the clock. “I have no life but him,” she said. “I give up my life to take care of him because he’s not going in a group home.” Christenson pulls in a little extra cash when she can by selling Avon products and things she crochets and decorating cakes. But they get by primarily on Jesse’s monthly SSI check. “This is my normal,” she said. “I just do it because it comes natural to me. It comes natural to us.” Christenson said she manages to pay the few monthly bills they have, but she’s in no financial position to build the special home Jesse needs. She hopes the GoFundMe account she opened online will help her make a stable home a reality. “Sometimes we struggle,” she said. “But where there’s a will, there’s a way, and I will find a way to make this home.” She said she can’t imagine her life without Jesse at the center of it. “I don’t think either one of us would survive if we didn’t have each other.” SPECIAL NEEDS from Page B3 HIT-RUN from Page B3 Elliott was charged with operating a vehicle without a license and leaving the scene of a crash with injury. According to BCSO, Elliott was driving along Tyndall Parkway south of State 22 about 9:30 p.m. when he lost control of the 2003 Dodge pickup truck and drove onto the median. He overcorrected and struck a telephone pole and phone box on the west side of the road. He then backed up and tried to drive off through the parking lot of a closed busi ness and struck a water back-flow preventer, BCSO said. Authorities reported Elliott then drove west in the eastbound lane of State 22 without making an effort to report the crash or help his passengers, who had escaped the vehicle after it hit the telephone pole. Elliott caused an esti mated $12,000 in damage during the incident, accord ing toe BCSO. Elliot recently had posted bond for a separate criminal charge of driving without a license in December, accord ing to court records. Two of the three passen gers were taken to a local hospital and treated for nonlife-threatening injuries, BCSO reported.P A TTI BL A KE | The News Herald Jesse Christenson, 33, hugs his mother, Sonya, who takes care of her mentally disabled son in their Caryville home.

The young female, which weighed 780 pounds when she arrived late Sunday, has been tube-fed water and electrolytes, and began showing inter est in food Tuesday, Sea World veterinarian Stacy DiRocco said. If she doesn’t start eating enough on her own, DiRocco said, the big marine mam mal will be tube-fed spinach, romaine lettuce and monkey chow mixed with water in a blender. “Once the manatees start eating on their own, we feed them mostly romaine lettuce,” she said. She said the manatee is probably 4 to 6 years old. In addition to signs of hypo thermia, she had two deep cuts from a boat propeller, DiRocco said. Those were cleaned with antibiotics and are being treated with honey. Manatee youngster recovering in Orlando

Brad Drake has taken the first formal step toward running again in 2016, according to the state Division of Elections website. Drake, a Walton County Republican who was elected in November after an earlier four-year stint in the House, opened a campaign account to seek reelection in the Panhandle’s District 5. That district includes Holmes, Jackson, Walton, Washington and part of Bay counties. Drake is the only candidate who has opened an account in the district. EASTPOINT FWC: Euthanized bears weren’t repeat offenders None of the adult bears captured and euthanized after a Dec. 21 attack on a 15-year-old Eastpoint girl had been captured previously, according to the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission. The attack took place about 20 miles from an area of the Apalachicola National Forest that can be used to relocate bears from other parts of the Panhandle. Bears that are relocated are marked with tags in their ears. The DNA of one of the four adult bears was found to match that found on the girl’s clothing. Two cubs also were caught and relocated. A R EA Briefs YULEE (AP) — With gay marriage now legal in Florida, same-sex couples from around the Deep South crossed the border Tues day as the Sunshine State became a prime regional destination for gay and les bian weddings still banned back home. Out-of-state couples lined up outside county court houses early Tuesday in the Panhandle and northern Flor ida counties. Some drove for hours to get marriage licenses at the first opportunity. “As soon as we heard about the ruling we pretty much decided on a whim to come yesterday,” said Scott Singletary, 22. “We wanted to make sure to do it as soon as possible, in case (the law) changed.” On that point, Florida’s gay and lesbian weddings seem more secure than the first same-sex nuptials held years ago in other states. The U.S. Supreme Court refused to hear a request by Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi to maintain the state’s marriage ban until a final resolution. After she was sworn in to a second term on Tuesday, Bondi said her top attorneys are review ing whether to continue the state’s appeal. Singletary and Dustyn Batten, 23, of Waycross, Ga., woke before dawn to make the nearly two-hour drive into Florida’s Nassau County. They had been planning a commit ment ceremony in Jackson ville, but were thrilled to learn they could actually get mar ried now that Florida’s gay marriage ban was lifted. Walt Disney World and other top Florida destina tions have offered commit ment ceremony packages for years, but wedding planners, and hotels and resorts are sensing a new tourism boom with more couples wanting weddings. “I’ve been fielding a ton of calls from out of state,” said Rachel McMurray, a licensed wedding officiant who mar ried a lesbian couple on Jack sonville’s courthouse steps Tuesday. “Even if their state doesn’t recognize the mar riage, it gives them a sense of legitimacy.” “My phone’s been blowing up,” said Shanie McCowen, who owns Rainbow Bells, a wedding planning company in Boca Raton. She said she normally gets four or five wedding inquiries a week, but fielded about 30 on Sunday and Monday alone, and now expects more business from Georgia and Alabama. County tourism boards already have changed their advertising: “Finally we all do” is the headline on Bro ward’s tourism home page. State becomes gay wedding destination

Rick Scott began his second term Tuesday with the same prom ise he made when he took office four years ago — to keep govern ment small, reduce taxes and cre ate jobs by making the state more business-friendly. Scott was sworn in outside Flor ida’s Old Capitol two months after beating Republican-turned-Demo crat former Gov. Charlie Crist with less than half the votes cast. He took credit for Florida’s recovery from the Great Recession and said he would continue to make the state a place that attracts businesses and new residents. “You have heard me constantly talk about jobs since 2010 when I got into the race. I can promise you I’m not going to stop,” Scott said. “Jobs have been my focus my last four years. Jobs will be my mission the next four years.” Cannons boomed outside the historic building after Scott took his oath in front of several hundred peo ple. Scott told the crowd he achieved a 2010 campaign promise of creating 700,000 jobs in seven years. What he didn’t say was that he actually promised to create 700,000 jobs above the million jobs state econo mists said would be created regard less of who was governor. Democratic Senate Leader Arthenia Joyner noticed. “He didn’t talk about the fact that he said he would create jobs in addition to the regular jobs that we get through growth,” said Joyner, who said she wished the governor also spoke about expanding Med icaid. “He said ‘talk is cheap,’ and he’s right and so is his. We have to make investments to turn talk into a reality.” Scott said he plans to travel to states such as California, New York, Illinois and Pennsylvania to encour age people to move to Florida. “We want you to keep more of your money because we under stand it’s your money, it’s not ours. We want your businesses to grow and succeed. We want to compete globally and we want to win,” Scott said. House Democratic Leader Mark Pafford said that while unem ployment is down, people are still underpaid. “They’re not able to save a dollar,” Pafford said. “They’re con stantly hemorrhaging those dollars that they earn just to eke out an existence in this state. We need to strive to be far better than that.” Scott was first elected during a Republican wave in 2010 with the strong support of the tea party movement. He reached out to all Floridians as he began his second term. “There are many things that we can come together on, and we should not let partisan politics, or any politics for that matter, get in our way,” Scott said. Scott sworn in to second term, focuses on jobs MIAMI (AP) — Promi nent American lawyer Alan Dershowitz has filed a detailed denial of a wom an’s claims he had sexual contact with her when she was underage in a case also involving Britain’s Prince Andrew — and now her two attorneys have sued him for alleged defamation. The court document filed late Monday says Dershowitz has multiple witnesses to refute the allegations made by the woman, identified only as Jane Doe No. 3. She claims wealthy financier Jeffrey Epstein required her to have sex with Dershowitz, Prince Andrew and others when she was still under age 18. Buckingham Palace has also emphatically denied her allegations. Dershow itz, who previously has made general denials, said in the court document the allegations “threaten to damage my reputation irrevocably.” “Never under any cir cumstances have I ever had any sexual contact of any kind, which includes massages or any physical contact whatsoever, with Jane Doe No. 3,” Dershow itz said. Epstein pleaded guilty in 2008 to Florida state sex charges but avoided more serious federal charges in a deal negotiated partly by Dershowitz. Dershowitz, a Harvard law professor, is perhaps best known for defending O.J. Simpson and also Claus Von Bulow in the “Reversal of For tune” case. The allegations against Prince Andrew, the second son of Queen Elizabeth II who is also known as the Duke of York, and Der showitz surfaced last week in a long-running lawsuit involving Epstein. Four unidentified women claim ing to be his victims as minors are suing the U.S. government over its plea deal with Epstein, contend ing their rights were vio lated and seeking to have the agreement thrown out. Paul Cassell, a University of Utah law professor, and Florida attorney Bradley J. Edwards, who are rep resenting the women, filed their lawsuit Tuesday against Dershowitz after he told CNN that they are the “villains” in this case and that they had failed to fact check their clients’ claims. “They are lying and I can prove it,” Dershowitz told CNN. Cassell and Edwards say their reputations had been defamed by such comments and were seek ing an unspecified amount of damages. Cassell had earlier said that Jane Doe No. 3 feels she has been “viciously attacked” by Dershowitz. “Our four victims do not oppose Mr. Dershowitz having an opportunity to present his arguments to the court,” Cassell said. Among Jane Doe No. 3’s allegations are that she had sex with Dershow itz on a private Caribbean island owned by Epstein. Dershowitz said in his response he was there only one time with his wife and daughter, and that they all slept overnight in the same room together after having dinner with Epstein and others. “During our entire stay on the island, we never saw any young women that fit the description of Jane Doe No. 3,” Dershowitz said. Another claim was that Dershowitz had sex with Jane Doe No. 3 at a house Epstein owns in New Mexico. According to Der showitz, he visited one time while it was under con struction — again with his wife and daughter — and neither Epstein nor any young girls were there. Dershowitz also said it was impossible he had sex with Jane Doe No. 3 aboard Epstein’s private airplane as she claims. Dershowitz acknowledges flying on the plane on several occasions, once to watch a rocket launch at Cape Canaveral, but never with any young girls present. “Had her lawyers called me, I would have provided them this information and told them to check the manifests,” Dershowitz said. Lawyer denies sex claims; accusers sue The Associated Press JACKSONVILLE Conjoined twins recovering from second surgery A pair of conjoined twin boys are recovering from their second surgery at a Jacksonville hospital. Doctors say Conner and Carter Mirabal will remain conjoined for the time being, and it may be several months before they need surgery again. The twins were born Dec. 12 sharing an intestine. They had their first surgery when they were just hours old. “They are doing wonderful on their own,” their mother, Michelle Brantley, said Monday. “We’re taking it day by day.” ST. PETERSBURG Police: Man attempted burglary while carrying infant Police said a Florida man attempted a burglary while carrying his 5-month-old son. According to St. Petersburg Police, a homeowner found 22-yearold Corey Mathews outside his home Monday, holding a baby in a car carrier. Police said that when Mathews spotted the homeowner, he alerted another suspect attempting to break into the home. The other suspect fled, and the homeowner called 911 as he followed Mathews. Mathews allegedly threatened the homeowner with a knife. Police said Mathews was still carrying his son and the knife when officers caught up with him. S TATE Briefs


DIVERSIONS A ces On BRIDGE: B obby W olff Newlywed hates his wife. So what’s next? DEAR AMY: I’ve been married for two weeks and frankly I hate my wife. She is completely lazy and pays absolutely no attention to me. She was so nice when we were dating, but it was probably all just for show. I come from a “richer type of family” and she comes from a “moderate to low-income family.” I feel kind of bad for her, but she is so pestering and obnoxious and she probably just married me for my money. I can’t divorce her because we have a legal document stating that I must give her $70,000 if we separate or divorce, and I’m not that rich. When I signed the document, I figured that by the time we did divorce, if we divorced, I would have that type of money (from growing investments). My parents are completely NOT on my side. They keep telling me that it’s my fault (which I agree to some extent) and refuse to get involved. BAD CHOICE MAKER DEAR MAKER: Normally I would suggest that your relationship might be repaired through some hard work and professional counseling, but when you report that you “hate” your wife after only two weeks of marriage, it would probably be best for everyone if you part company quickly. Your wife might be lazy and tacky, but you don’t sound like the sharpest tool in the shed. I’m not a lawyer, but given your situation it seems idiotic of you to sign a prenup. You need good legal advice. Because your union is so brief, there might be an “out” clause you can exercise in order to nullify the marriage. This is your mess. Your parents are wise not to get involved. Your wife will come out the winner, financially — because unless you can void the prenup, you will basically have to pay her for your freedom. Frankly, if you really hate her that much, $70,000 will seem like a bargain to escape from this mistake. Prorated over a lifetime, it doesn’t amount to all that much. DEAR AMY: I visited my mom and stepdad’s house one afternoon. Everything seemed fine until my mother and stepfather had some sort of miscommunication. My stepdad left angrily and hit my car on his way out of the driveway. He got out to inspect the damage then gave me a dirty look and sped off. My mom assured me the damage would be paid for. When I became angry at my stepdad’s behavior, she changed her tune and said the damage is cosmetic and the car was a gift, so they shouldn’t be responsible for the repair. She also suggested I see a therapist because I’m “too emotional” about this. The damage cost $670 to be repaired. To date I still have not been repaid and, more important, I have not received an apology. After receiving this car from them as a gift, I’ve paid all the expenses for the last four years and I own the title. What did I do wrong? FURIOUS DEAR FURIOUS: You’ve done nothing wrong. Both parents are attacking you because they made a mistake and would rather be furious than appropriately apologetic. Given their behavior, your choices are to stew in your own juice (giving them more opportunities to turn this on you) or to suck it up and accept that the accident happened because of your stepfather’s hot temper. You will probably not receive what you seek — either an apology or redress — because rather than be a rational grownup he will blame you for his mistake and then blame you for your reaction to his mistake. You could respond, “It’s obvious that you will not reimburse me for the damage, but I would really appreciate an apology.” Send questions via e-mail to askamy@ or by mail to Ask Amy, Chicago Tribune, TT500, 435 N.

They might not remember all the things you did, but they will definitely remember how you made them feel. TAURUS (April 20-May 20): You might be surprised at whom you’ll influence. You can be sure that the impression you make will travel long distances and extend far into the future, too. GEMINI (May 21-June 21): You’re generous now — maybe too generous. Think twice before you share to prevent yourself from accidentally giving away what you should have kept for yourself. CANCER (June 22-July 22): Use reverse psychology. People will want what they think they can’t have. Create a sense of scarcity around what you’re offering. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Make big plans, because without them, you’ll be reacting to life instead of creating it. Not all of your plans will work out, but you’ll sure be better off for having made them. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): If you don’t believe something should be yours, then you won’t be able to obtain it. Work on your own feelings of worthiness. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23): You can’t help it that you’re drawn to highly competitive arenas. But with your high level of focus, you put the odds in your favor. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21): When people are not understanding you, it’s natural to want to repeat yourself, loudly. However, such a tactic won’t work. You need new words instead. Change your language and approach. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): You can’t help but wonder whether life would have been different had you made another choice. Rest assured, you made the right choice then, and today brings a kind of proof you’ll find quite satisfying. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): You have so much on your mind that socializing might not seem like a huge priority. But make a weekend plan anyway — you’ll be glad when Saturday comes around. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Where you spend your time will be crucial to the way relationships develop. A comfortable environment will allow you to shine. If you’re not comfortable, it will be better to leave than to try to make things work. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Today brings a chase of some kind. Don’t assume anything about the thing or person you’re after. This situation will require you to be fully aware and on your game. THAT SCRAMBLED WORD GAME by David L.

Longtime judge, short-time mentor Randy Jackson is gone. Music executive Scott Borchetta, whose impressive credentials include acting as mentor to Taylor Swift, will play that role for contestants and the winner will be signed to Borchetta’s Big Machine Records. There’s another shake-up ahead for the series, which returns with an hour-long episode today (7 p.m. CST) and a two-hour episode Thursday (7 p.m. CST): Starting with the live shows in mid-March, “American Idol” will cut back to a two-hour show once a week, on Wednesday. It’s a logical move given the aging show’s ratings decline in an increasingly competitive entertainment landscape, said analyst Brad Adgate of Horizon Media. “American Idol” dipped last season to an all-time low weekly average of 10.2 million viewers, according to Nielsen company figures. That’s about a third of the 30.2 million the singing contest hit at its peak in 2006, when Taylor Hicks claimed the title over runner-up Katharine McPhee. But “Idol” remains a relatively strong performer for Fox, one the network seeks to protect, Adgate said. “Whatever audience erosion will happen this year will be mitigated by limiting the show to one night,” he said. It’s only fair to viewers to reduce the demand on their time, said executive producer Trish Kinane, given that the once-unique “American Idol” is now part of a flood of talent shows, including NBC’s popular “The Voice.” “To commit to three hours a week for our or any other of the shows is too much, even if you adore these (talent) shows,” she said. The compressed schedule will allow for a better program, one that combines performances with the results of viewer voting for the previous week’s competition, Kinane said. All the contestants will be on hand for the live episodes, “dressed, ready and with their songs rehearsed,” only to find out who is being eliminated, according to Kinane. The results won’t be announced at the beginning of the show, but in a “more dramatic way,” she said, holding details back for now. The show will retain a familiar look. Ryan Seacrest, the sole original cast member, is returning as host, and Harry Connick Jr., Jennifer Lopez and Keith Urban will be back for their second year together as judges. All that’s needed now is the kind of compelling contestants and future stars that “American Idol” has discovered in the past, including Kelly Clarkson, Carrie Underwood and Jennifer Hudson. “If I have a criticism of the show for us last year, it is that we haven’t found, in the last two years, a group of kids who have captured the imagination of the public,” Peter Rice, chairman and CEO of Fox Networks Group, told a news conference after the 2014 season’s conclusion. That bar will be met, Kinane said, with outstanding performers discovered in auditions held in Nashville, Tenn.; New Orleans; San Francisco; and elsewhere. Slimmed-down ‘Idol’ returns tonight AP Keith Urban, Jennifer Lopez, and Harry Connick Jr. arrive on the set of American Idol XIV in Los Angeles on Dec. 9.

Sports PANAMA CITY NEWS HERALD Section C Facebook: Twitter: @NH_Sports By JASON SHOOT 747-5069 | @PCNHJasonShoot PANAMA CITY — Ruth erford was not about to let North Bay Haven collect an upset victory on the soccer field for a second consecutive year. Matt Baumgartner scored twice from distance, and the Rams shook off an early deficit with five unan swered goals in a 5-1 vic tory in a non-district boys soccer game at Tommy Oli ver Stadium on Tuesday night. Rutherford, which competes in District 2-3A, improved to 7-7 overall. NBH, which plays in Dis trict 1-2A, slipped to 5-7-4. The Buccaneers initially appeared primed for an upset when Tyjon Cuffee followed up on a Jeremiah Hatcher shot and depos ited the ball in the back of the net for a 1-0 lead in the 15th minute. Baumgartner got the Rams even on the scoreboard one minute later, drilling a shot from 25 yards out that tucked neatly under the crossbar for a 1-1 tie. Rutherford seemed to settle down col lectively after that goal and dominated the rest of the way. “I think falling behind early was a combination of a horrible practice (Monday) and the break,” Rams coach Matt Tread way said. “Last year we lost to North Bay Haven at the end of the year, and I think there was that shock that it may happen again.” NEW YORK (AP) — Randy Johnson, Pedro Martinez and John Smoltz dominated in an era of offense, each in their own way. The 6-foot-10 Big Unit became the tallest of 215 players elected to baseball’s Hall of Fame and the 5-foot-11 Martinez the shortest pitcher picked for Cooperstown since Whitey Ford in 1974. Smoltz, who found unusual suc cess both as a starting pitcher and a reliever, also was voted in Tuesday along with Craig Biggio, the first time since 1955 writers picked a quartet of players in one year. For many, the election of John son and Martinez was the long and short of it. “You’re talking about freakish talent,” Smoltz said. “I’ve never seen at each person’s height any body come close to what they were able to do.” Johnson, Martinez and Smoltz were crowned by big margins on their first tries, and Biggio made it on his third attempt after falling two votes shy last year. Steroids-tainted stars Roger Clemens, Barry Bonds, Mark McG wire and Sammy Sosa again fell far short of half of the votes and appear to have little chance of reaching the necessary 75 percent during their remaining time on the Base ball Writers’ Association of America ballot. “It’s actually sad, to be honest. It’s sad,” Martinez said. “People I admired are not going in with me.” The quartet will be inducted in Cooperstown on July 26. The BBWAA had not voted in four players together since selecting Joe DiMaggio, Gabby Hartnett, Ted Lyons and Dazzy Vance 60 years earlier. A five-time Cy Young Award winner with 303 victories and 4,875 strikeouts, Johnson was selected on 534 of 549 ballots by BBWAA mem bers who have been with the orga nization for 10 consecutive years at any point. The left-hander appeared on 97.3 percent of the ballots, the eighth-highest mark in the history of voting. Outfielder Dave Winfield (6-foot6), elected in 2001, had been the tallest Hall of Famer, according to STATS. “I don’t think people quite understand how difficult it is to be 6-foot-10 and be throwing a ball 60 feet, 6 inches away,” Johnson WEDNESDAY January 7, 2015 It’s not the elephant in the room as much as it is the chemist. Or the sociologist. At least that’s the vibe coming from the latest Baseball Hall of Fame balloting completed Tuesday. The lingering question is how baseball ultimately will judge past greats from the game who have been linked to performanceenhancing drugs. In the short run, men such as Barry Bonds, Roger Clemens, Sammy Sosa, Rafael Palmeiro and Mark McGwire to name a few, are being ignored while others whose contributions didn’t reach their standards are being eulogized. That isn’t meant to diminish the latest enshrinees. It merely adds an unsettling backdrop to the newest class to be inducted into Cooperstown, and it is a group noteworthy both for its brilliance and its depth. If fans have a problem with pitchers Randy Johnson, Pedro Martinez and John Smoltz becoming first-ballot Hall of Famers they most likely are unaware that major league baseball is now being played in South Florida, Arizona and the nation’s capital. There also is room in the hall for longevity, and Craig Biggio’s numbers stack up rather well in that regard. So instead of trying to find lint on anyone’s uniform stirrups, a simple nod to continued excellence will do. Now back to those whose deeds are tarnished, and in some instances without incontrovertible proof. It’s not as if there was a sign in each clubhouse 25 years ago warning players against using steroids as there was for gambling on games. Baseball’s glacial pace in keeping up with the times is just as guilty in some instances. Voters, many of them writers and broadcasters, not only are trying to uphold the sanctity of the game, they are drawing on past confrontations with men such as Bonds and Clemens, who often used their platform of superstardom to intimidate anyone with the temerity to challenge their eminence. Hall of Fame voting is their revenge, for probably more than a few. Clemens received 206 votes, exactly half the required amount for enshrinement. Bonds got four votes less than Clemens, and McGwire and Sosa, who staged the enhanced battle to surpass Roger Maris’ home run record were mere batting practice at 55 and 36, respectively. Those latter totals have decreased yearly since McGwire and Sosa became eligible. Clemens won seven Cy Youngs. He is third in career strikeouts and won 135 more games than did Martinez. He is the only man among the top 14 all time in strikeouts without a plaque in Cooperstown.

The Commodores (13-4) come in winners of three in a row and 10 of their last 11, while the Indians (7-11 overall, 0-1 in the Panhandle) have been headed in the opposite direction of late, losing three in a row and five of their last eight. Saturday’s league-opening home loss to Pensacola was par ticularly painful, with the Indians falling in double overtime after leading by as much as seven points in the first overtime. Gulf Coast was idle, and coach Jay Powell was at the game to scout. He said Chipola’s effort and performance belied its win-loss record and recent struggles. “It was a hard-fought game,” Powell said. “I was really impressed with the tough ness level of both teams. I was impressed with Chipola’s ability to stay within their offense and run their offense. I thought they did a real nice job of that. “I was impressed with their guard play and they’ve got some (6-foot-6 or 6-foot-7) guys on the wing who can put the ball on the floor and do some things to score the basketball. We’re going to have to do a good job on them defensively to win the basketball game.” It has been an unusually difficult start to the season for the Indians, who made the final eight of the national tournament last season and started out at No. 7 in this year’s preseason NJCAA poll. Chipola lost four of its first five games and took a person nel hit when starting guards Tra-Deon Hollins and Kevin Scott were dismissed after Thanksgiving.

(AP) — Pan thers coach Ron Rivera said he’s never experienced a season like this one since he joined the NFL 30 years ago. Carolina’s journey to the NFC divisional playoffs has included quarterback Cam Newton flipping his truck and being hospitalized with two fractures in his lower back, franchise defensive end Greg Hardy being convicted on two counts of domestic violence, and Rivera’s house catching fire and causing $500,000 worth of the damage five days before the biggest game of his coaching career. “It has been different,” Rivera said. “You can’t make this stuff up.” There’s been nothing ordinary or predictable about the Panthers on the field, either. Carolina became the first NFL team to go more than two months without a victory and reach the play offs. The Panthers won the NFC South despite a 7-8-1 record. And last Saturday, a defense that gave up 35 or more points in four of its first seven games held Arizona to 78 yards in the wild-card round, the fewest ever allowed in the NFL postseason.

Amy Carinas had the only goal of the night for NBH, assisted by Sierra Eisenbrown, while Ashlyn Posey had 18 saves for the Bucs. Raye Sutton and Kyra Love each had five saves for the Marlins. Arnold next plays host to Niceville on Thursday, while NBH plays Bay on Thursday at Tommy Oliver Stadium. Boys basketball Rutherford 70, Gulf Breeze 47 GULF BREEZE — The Rams maintained their perfect District 1-5A record with the win, moving to 5-0 in league play and 15-3 over all. Gabe Steele led Rutherford with 23 points and Destin Dunton added 22. Rutherford next plays at Bay on Friday. Cottondale 82, Blountstown 55 COTTONDALE — The Hornets ripped the Tigers thanks to 25 points from Kadeem Webb and 20 from Tristan Braxton. JaVontai Hall added nine points for Cot tondale and Keyshawn Webb had eight. Cottondale next plays at Graceville on Friday, while Blount stown hosts Sneads on Thursday. Girls basketball Mosley 41, Chipley 40 CHIPLEY — A 3-pointer by Kiana Yangson with three sec onds remaining gave the Dolphins the win to improve to 17-3 on the season. Hennessey Smith had 14 points and 10 rebounds to lead MHS, with J’Niyah Daniels adding eight points and seven assists, and Yangson eight points. Mosley next plays at Arnold on Saturday. Niceville 63, Arnold 31 PANAMA CITY BEACH — The Marlins fell to 4-12 on the season with the loss, as Jazlin Jones led the way with 16 points and Destini Washington added seven points and seven rebounds. Arnold next hosts Bay on Thursday. Wewa 43, Bozeman 36 SAND HILLS — Wewahitchka overcame an outstanding offen sive effort from Bozeman’s Shelby Suggs to get the win, with Suggs scoring 33 points in the loss. Suggs also grabbed 13 rebounds for the Bucks, who fell to 0-10. Mallory Peak led the Gators with 13 points. Bozeman next plays host to West Gadsden on Thursday. Wewa hosts Vernon on Thursday. Late results Navarre 2, Mosley 0 NAVARRE — Ben Pehr made five saves for Mosley, which suf fered a shutout loss. The Dolphins play at Niceville today at 5 p.m. Bonds was a seven-time MVP recipient. If he’d hit 400 career home runs instead of his career-leading 762, he most likely already would be enshrined. And so it goes. There’s no instant replay to help make the call on what to do with some of the best players of a generation that are viewed as damaged goods, although we don’t diminish in any way the championship teams from the so-called “Steroid Era.” Time will alter the images of some of these men, both inside the Baseball Writers’ Association of America and beyond. They might even become empathetic figures as they enter their twilight years. The aftermath is that it might not be the fact they allegedly sought alternatives to stay at the top of their game, as much as the way they treated people that supplies their baseball legacy. That doesn’t have anything to do with baseball rules and inflated statistics. It’s about human decency. And that provides an even larger shroud than PEDs over admission to Cooperstown. M c CANN from page C1 HALL OF FAME from page C1 said. “In order to do that, you have to consistent with your release point and where you’re landing and your arm slot and all that. For someone 6-1, 6-2, there’s less body to keep under control, so it’s a lot easier.” A three-time Cy Young winner with flamboyance to go along with his fast ball, Martinez appeared on 500 ballots (91.1 percent). He was 219-100, struck out 3,154, led the major leagues in ERA five times and in 2004 helped the Boston Red Sox to their first World Series title in 86 years. Martinez followed Juan Marichal (1983) as the second Dominican Hall of Famer. Eleven inches shorter than Johnson, Martinez pitched with exceptional intensity. “My body would change half an hour before the game, and I would just become this serious, focused person because my dad reminded me you’ve got to be serious about your job,” Martinez recalled. “I saw every body as an enemy, and I saw everybody as like in a jungle: You just kill to sur vive. And that’s the inten sity and the focus I had to keep to do it every day on a day-to-day basis. And that’s the kind of chip on the shoulder that people thought I had, even though that was my way to con centrate and do the day to day things that I did in baseball.” Smoltz was on 455 bal lots (82.9 percent). The 1996 NL Cy Young win ner was 213-155 with 154 saves, the only pitcher with 200 wins and 150 saves. He went 15-4 in the postseason during a 21year career that included 3 1/2 seasons in the bullpen when he returned slowly following elbow surgery that sidelined him for the 2000 season. He combined with Greg Maddux and Tom Glavine to form a starting rota tion that was the primary factor in Atlanta’s record 14 consecutive playoff appearances. Now Smoltz will join the pair in the Hall following their inductions last July. “The three of us share such a unique bond that I don’t think anyone really feels any different than the other person, although I can tell you that I’m not in their class when it talks about the numbers that they put up,” Smoltz said. “But I’m probably not in anyone’s class because of the strangeness of my career and the uniqueness of what I did.” Biggio appeared on 454 ballots, 42 more than needed and up from 68.2 percent in his first appear ance and 74.8 percent last year. A catcher who shifted to second base and spent three seasons in the outfield, he had 3,060 hits and 668 doubles in 20 big league seasons, all with the Houston Astros. “I was a nervous dog this morning. I haven’t been this anxious in a long time,” Biggio said. “Maybe it does mean a little bit more this year.” Mike Piazza fell 28 votes short but increased his percentage to 69.9 from 57.8 in 2013 and 62.2 last year. Both making their third appearances, Clemens received 37.5 percent and Bonds 36.8 percent. In his ninth and next-to-last year of eligibility, McGwire got 10 percent — less than half his peak of 23.6 per cent in 2008. Sosa was on 6.6 percent of the ballots, just above the 5 percent threshold for remaining on next year’s list. Don Mattingly received 9.1 percent in his 15th and final appearance on the ballot. Under a change made by the Hall’s board last summer, players’ eli gibility was cut from 15 years to 10 but the 11-15 group was grandfathered. Among the 17 firsttime eligibles who will be dropped are Carlos Del gado (3.8 percent) and players’ association head Tony Clark, who did not get any votes. Ken Griffey Jr., Trevor Hoffman and Billy Wagner are among the players eli gible for the first time in next year’s ballot. But first, this summer’s induction. Biggio, the only offensive player, was 0 for 14 against Johnson but hit .302 against Martinez (13 for 43) and .260 versus Smoltz (27 for 104). “Actually, I got a hit off of Randy in spring train ing one time,” Biggio said, “but it didn’t count.” RAMS from page C1 Rutherford gained the lead for good in the 23rd minute when Dai lin Allen skimmed a pass across the top of the 18-yard box to Kyle Reid, who deliv ered the goal for a 2-1 mar gin on the scoreboard. The Rams tacked on a goal from a penalty kick in the 31st minute to take a 3-1 lead into the locker room. Oran Samuels was tackled inside the box, and Allen scored moments later after the referee had assessed the penalty against the Buccaneers. Quentin Reese found open space at the top of the box for a goal in the 66th minute, and Baumgartner followed with a 35-yard strike off his right foot in the 76th minute. Baumgartner had time to run up on the ball and gauge his shot, and he placed the ball perfectly in the right side of the goal. Baumgartner said he thought the second goal was more impressive than the first. “We’re getting better,” he said. “I think we’re get ting to know each other and how we play.” Both Baumgartner and Treadway stressed that it is important for the Rams to clean up their play on the back end. “We’re a pretty strong attacking team relative to our district,” Treadway said. “But our back four have trouble with better quality teams. We have the skill. Over the next two weeks we’ll work on covering each other and high-quality offense.” Treadway and NBH coach Anthony Watson said the holiday break was not kind to their respective teams. Both teams strug gled with inconsistent play, particularly in the early stages of the game. “We have to settle it down and play with compo sure,” Watson said. “Christ mas break hurt us. A week before the break is when we were peaking.” nationally-ranked Motlow State on Dec. 16, but they followed with consecutive losses to East Geor gia State and USC-Salkehatchie in Panama City before Saturday’s loss to Pensacola. Despite Chipola’s losing record, Powell said that he has learned never to take for granted just how difficult it is to win any Panhandle Conference game and expects a tough battle tonight. “In every year of my eight years at Gulf Coast it has been tough, hard-nosed games for all 12 on the schedule no matter what the records have been in noncon ference and I expect that to hold true this season,” he said. “You look at the teams in this league and all have got good players and good coaches, so you have to go out and compete hard because there are two or three things most nights that can push a game either way. “I expect Chipola to be as focused and determined to win as they’ve ever been, but I have the same expectation from our squad. When it’s done, we’re going to feel like we’re getting out of a 12-round heavyweight championship fight. That’s what you come to expect in the Panhandle.” The Commodores didn’t start the season on a hot streak them selves, going 3-3 before reeling off seven straight victories. The only defeat for Gulf Coast since then came to No. 9 East ern Florida State 77-68 Dec.13 in Ocala. In the other 10 games, the Commodores have outscored their opponents by 11.5 points per game and limited them to an aver age of 57.9 points. “You always try to be playing your best ball of the season when Panhandle play rolls around and I think we have steadily gotten bet ter through the first 17 games of the season,” Powell said. “But it’s a challenge any time when you’ve got a group of 18to 21-year-old men to keep them elevating their level of play and their level of com mitment day in and day out. We just have to hope and trust that’s going to happen.” Perhaps the strength of the Commodores thus far has been their balance, with six play ers averaging between 7.7 and 13.8 points, five of whom have led GC in scoring at least once this season. While balance has been big in the first half of the season, Powell said that the recipe for winning tonight will be more about effort and physicality. “Because of it being our first (Panhandle) home game and it being a rivalry game, I feel like we really have to be tougher than they are and we have to own the glass,” Powell said. “We need to rebound really well and get the loose balls, the 50-50 balls, take charges, things like that. That’s the biggest key in order for us to win.” The game tips off at 7:30 p.m. following the women’s game at 5:30 p.m. Northwest tops T CC No. 2 Northwest Florida State also opened Panhandle play Sat urday with an 85-78 road win over Tallahassee. Jalen Jackson had 22 points and seven rebounds to lead the Raiders (17-0, 1-0), with Benji Bell adding 18 points and eight assists, Treshaad Williams also scoring 18, and Brandon Austin contributed 15 points. TCC (14-4, 0-1) was led by Elmo Stephen’s 27 points, with Stavian Allen adding 13, and Cameron Smith 10. The Eagles will go on the road to face Pensacola State tonight, while the Raiders host the Pirates on Saturday. GULF COAS T from page C1 P ATTI B LA K E | The News Herald Rutherford’s Quentin Reese, who scored in the second half, eludes North Bay Haven defender David Holmes. PANTHERS from page C1 wasn’t expecting this type of adventure in his first season in Carolina. The Panthers visit Seattle (12-4) on Saturday with a trip to the NFC championship game on the line. “It isn’t the prettiest thing, but we got a date to the prom at the end of the day,” Harper said, laughing. “We’re here. She’s probably not the best-looking one; she’s not going to win prom queen, but we’ll have a good time.” The Panthers aren’t apologizing for their record. In fact, in some ways they believe the season has toughened them and left them playoff ready. They had to win their last four games just to get into the playoffs. Newton has fought through ankle and rib injuries and the back fractures, and he has the Panthers on a five-game winning streak. Rivera is already hunkered down pre paring for Seattle while his wife handles the details of where he’ll live for the next 6-8 months while their burned-out home is rebuilt. Hardy still isn’t eligible to play, but his absence paved the way for fellow defensive end Charles Johnson to step out of char acter and become one of the team’s vocal leaders. Cornerback Josh Norman is convinced the Panthers have benefited from some divine intervention — particularly when it came to Newton’s accident. “If it weren’t for God’s angel covering him in that truck, I don’t know what would have happened,” Norman said. “We could have been talking about missing our quarterback, our leader, forever. But he was blessed.” The idea the Panthers are even still play ing after a 3-8-1 start speaks volumes about the team, said center Ryan Kalil. “Some strange things have come up,” Kalil said, “but it’s been very telling of the character and closeness of this team that whether it is something happening inside or outside the locker room, this is a group that stuck together and continue to work and work.” Kalil said that is also a reflection of Rivera, the 2013 NFL Coach of the Year, for staying positive and keeping everyone together when it would have been easy to quit on the season.

(AP) — Aaron Harrison scored 26 points, including two big free throws with 1:29 remaining in overtime to put Kentucky ahead to stay, and the top-ranked Wildcats withstood three final Mis sissippi attempts to rally before escaping with an 8986 victory Tuesday night. Overwhelming favorites against a Mississippi squad they had beaten 102 times in 115 previous meetings, the Wildcats (14-0, 1-0 SEC) instead survived a backand-forth battle with the determined Rebels in their Southeastern Conference opener. Especially in OT, as missed free throws down the stretch gave the Rebels chances to either go ahead or tie the game. Mississippi couldn’t take advantage as LaDarius White missed on one pos session and the Rebels (95, 0-1) lost the ball out of bounds on the next. The Rebels had one last opportu nity after Trey Lyles missed two free throws with 15.4 seconds left, but Martavious Newby’s 3-pointer bounced high and was grabbed by Willie Cauley-Stein to keep Kentucky unbeaten. Devin Booker added 13 points, Andrew Harrison 12, including a free throw with 33 seconds left, and Karl-Anthony Towns 11 as the Wildcats survived their toughest test this season. Stefan Moody scored 25 points and Jarvis Summers 23 for the Rebels, who beat Kentucky 30-26 in the paint and controlled the boards for much of the game before falling short 34-32. Summers even had a chance to win it at the end of regulation, but his 3-point attempt with 4 seconds left bounced high off the rim with the game tied at 77. Though the Rebels fell short of pulling off a huge upset, they succeeded in giving Kentucky the scare that few expected the Wild cats to face in the SEC. Unfazed by trailing Ken tucky 12-0 and 18-5, Moody helped Mississippi’s offense regroup to mount runs of 10-0 and 7-0 to get within 23-22 before eventually tak ing a 30-26 lead with 7:01 left in the half. The junior guard went 4 of 5 from long range en route to 16 points while White added his only attempt, leading a 50-per cent shooting half by Mis sissippi in leading 38-36 at the break. No. 23 Arkansas 79, Georgia 75 ATHENS, Ga. — Bobby Portis scored 21 points, Michael Qualls added 15 and No. 23 Arkansas rallied from a first-half deficit of 13 points to beat Georgia in the SEC opener for each team. Arkansas (12-2, 1-0 SEC) needed a strong second half for its sixth straight win. The Razor backs played from behind before taking their first lead with about 6 minutes remaining. A rebound and basket by Georgia’s Marcus Thornton with 4.5 seconds remaining cut the Arkansas lead to 77-75. Two free throws by Qualls pushed the lead back to four points. Nemanja Djurisic led Geor gia (9-4, 0-1) with 16 points. The loss ended the Bulldogs’ six-game winning streak, their longest in four years. Georgetown 65, Marquette 59 WASHINGTON — Joshua Smith had 12 points and 10 rebounds, and Georgetown survived a 12-minute field goal drought in the second half in a win over Marquette. Smith had seven offensive boards, and D’Vauntes Smith-Rivera added 15 points and Jabril Trawick 13 points for the Hoyas (10-4, 2-1 Big East) in their first game since dropping out of the AP Top 25. Georgetown has won two straight after a loss at Xavier to open conference play. UConn 58, South Florida 44 TAMPA — Amida Brimah scored 13 points and Ryan Boatright added 10 as Connecti cut shrugged off a slow start to beat South Florida. The Huskies (8-5, 1-1 American) completed a successful road trip to the Sun shine State, following up on last Saturday’s come-from-behind win over Florida in a rematch of one of last season’s national semi finals. The defending national champions trailed by seven early but took control during a 21-2 run, including 14 straight points to open a 42-26 lead early in the second half. Michigan 73, Penn State 64 STATE COLLEGE, Pa. — Caris LeVert scored 18 points, Zak Irvin added 17 and Michigan converted clutch free throws down the stretch to hold off Penn State. Michigan (9-6, 2-1 Big Ten), the defending Big Ten regularseason champion, has relied on 3-point shooting all season and it was no different against the Lions. Irvin, LeVert and Aubrey Dawkins each had two as the Wolverines were 9 of 13 from 3-point range and 24 of 45 overall. Derrick Walton Jr. added 12 points for the Wolverines. Michi gan also had a 31-26 rebounding edge on Penn State as Irvin pulled down nine. It was the Big Ten home opener for Penn State, which fell to 0-3 in conference play and 124 overall. D.J. Newbill scored 20 points and John Johnson had 18 for the Lions, who were 22 of 53 from the field. Akron 72, W. Michigan 52 AKRON, Ohio — Pat For sythe scored 14 points on a per fect shooting night, 6 of 6 from the field and 2 of 2 at the free throw line, and also pulled down nine rebounds to lead Akron to a victory over Western Michigan. Deji Ibitayo came off the bench to add 12 points for the Zips (10-4, 1-0 Mid-American Conference), who shot 48.2 percent from the field while holding the Broncos to a cool 35.3 percent. Akron also hit 10 total 3-pointers and won the rebounding battle 39-29. C. Michigan 65, Toledo 62 TOLEDO, Ohio — John Simons hit a corner 3-pointer with 1:08 left to give Central Michigan a victory over Toledo in a Mid-American Conference opener for both teams. Toledo’s Julius Brown missed a game-tying 3-pointer with 7 seconds left and Central Michigan grabbed the rebound and ran out the clock. Cincinnati 69, East Carolina 48 CINCINNATI — Octavious Ellis scored 12 points, grabbed nine rebounds, and had three blocks to lead Cincinnati to a vic tory over East Carolina. The Bearcats defense was suf focating all evening, holding East Carolina to just 27 percent shoot ing from the field and 5 of 22 from the 3-point line. The Bearcats also had a decided edge on the glass, winning the rebounding battle 47-35. Kevin Johnson also finished with 12 points for Cincinnati (11-3, 2-0 American Conference). Troy Caupain added 10 points and six assists for the Bearcats. Cincinnati did much of its damage in the first half, open ing the game on an 8-2 scoring stretch and never looking back, taking a 38-22 lead at the half. The Bearcats would continue that momentum into the second half, opening on a 12-4 stretch. Jacksonville 79, Florida A&M 56 TALLAHASSEE — Andris Misters had a career-high 32 points as Jacksonville dominated winless Florida A&M. Misters made 5 of 7 from long range to hit 10 of 13 from the floor and made 7 of 8 free throws. J.R. Holder had 17 points and Kori Babineaux chipped in 15 for Jack sonville (6-11). Women No. 5 Baylor 74, Kansas State 44 MANHATTAN, Kan. — Nina Davis scored 24 points and Kristy Wallace added 17 to help No. 5 Baylor rout Kansas State for the Lady Bears 18th straight win in the series. Baylor (13-1, 2-0 Big 12) last lost to the Wildcats on Jan. 27, 2004. Breanna Lewis led the Wild cats (10-3, 0-2) with 13 points while Haley Texada added 12. Kansas State led 3-0 before Baylor scored the next 23 points to take control of the game. AP Kentucky’s Aaron Harrison shoots under pressure from Mississippi’s Aaron Jones on Tuesday. Linebacker Morrison staying with Gators By ROBBIE ANDREU Halifax Media Services GAINESVILLE — For a second consecutive day, a top Florida junior defensive player announced on Twitter that he is returning for his senior season. Linebacker Antonio Morrison, the Gators’ leading tackler this season, is the latest junior to say he’s stay ing at Florida instead of declaring for the draft. Junior defensive tackle Jonathan Bullard revealed Monday that he’s returning in 2015. “I’m returning to Florida and I will be getting my degree in 2015,” Morrison told on Tues day. “That plays a big role in why I’m returning. And as a leader of this team, I want to lead my team to Atlanta and possibly a national championship. Coach (Jim) McElwain has put together a great staff and I’m looking forward to working with them this year.” Morrison was perhaps Florida’s most productive defensive player this season, recording 101 tackles. He finished with 10 or more tackles in six games, including a career-high 16 against South Carolina. He is the first Gator to record more than 100 tackles in a season since safety Ahmad Black in 2010. Morrison also had six tackles for loss, a sack, an inter ception and a forced fumble this season. He’s played in 33 games in his career, totaling 191 tackles. Morrison left the Birmingham Bowl with what appeared to be a serious leg injury that likely will require surgery. Florida is expected to reveal more about the extent of the injury today. While Morrisoin and Bullard are staying, junior offen sive tackle D.J. Humphries confirmed Monday that he’s entering the draft. Three other juniors also already have declared for the NFL — defensive end/outside linebacker Dante Fowler Jr., tailback Matt Jones and offensive guard Tyler Moore. Senior center Max Garcia learned Monday he has been invited to play in the Senior Bowl game on Jan. 24 in Mobile, Ala. Three other seniors — linebacker Neiron Ball, offensive lineman Trenton Brown and punter Kyle Christy — said on Twitter that they have been invited to the NFL Combine in February. Florida parts ways with defensive tackle Willis GAINESVILLE — Florida has parted ways with defen sive tackle Gerald Willis. The University Athletic Association announced Tues day that Willis, a 6-foot-2 sophomore from New Orleans, will transfer. Willis will have two years of eligibility remaining. Willis made headlines for all the wrong reasons this season. He missed the first two games for undisclosed reasons and got into a fight with quarterback Skyler Mornhinweg in October over a pair of cleats. He was kicked off the sideline at Florida State in November after taking a cheap shot on quarterback Jameis Winston out of bounds. Fired coach Will Mus champ said after the game that if he remained, he would kick Willis off the team. Willis played in the Birmingham Bowl and forced a fumble at the goal line in a 28-20 win over East Carolina. TALLAHASSEE (AP) — Florida State cornerback P.J. Williams says he plans to declare for the NFL Draft. The 6-foot, 196-pound junior made the announcement on his Twitter account Tuesday. Williams was honored as the defensive MVP of last year’s BCS national championship game after his fourthquarter interception helped the Seminoles rally to win the title. He finished the 2014 season with 74 tackles, 6.5 tackles for loss, one sack and one interception. Williams’ combination of size and speed is expected to make him a high draft pick despite an underperforming junior season that was affected by injuries. Williams said on Twitter, “I will be taking my talent to the NFL, I wanna thank the NoleNation for some of the best 3 years of my life, the memories will never fade!!” Virginia’s Valles opts for draft CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. — Virginia outside linebacker Max Valles has decided to forgo his last two years of eligibility and enter the NFL Draft. The 6-foot-5, 240-pound sophomore made the announcement Tuesday. He joins junior defensive end Eli Harold in opting to leave school. Valles finished second in the Atlantic Coast Conference with nine sacks this season. Clemson punter Pinion declares for draft CLEMSON, S.C. — Clemson punter Bradley Pinion is giving up his final season for the pros. Pinion had the fifth-best average in the ACC last fall at 42.6 yards per punt. He led the ACC and set a Clemson record with 28 punts downed inside the 20-yard line. He also had 36 touchbacks on 74 kickoffs this season. FSU cornerback Williams to declare for NFL Draft COLLEGE FOOTBALL

Rangers at Anaheim In The BLEACHERS SPORTS Briefs Ebro: Jeremy Rose could contend EBRO — Whynot Jethro looks to be in good form, but Jeremy Rose poses a threat in the 14th race of Sarasota’s matinee, simulcast today at Ebro Greyhound Park. Whynot Jethro, a TA Kennel dog that was seven of eight in the trifecta last season at Ebro, has won two straight, including an excellent 30.37-second clocking on Friday. Jeremy Rose was eight of 11 in the quiniela, but followed the pack to a fifth-place finish in that same race. The matinee sixth at Derby Lane has LK’s Hi Voltage looking to get back on track out of the 1 hole in the matinee sixth. He’d never finished worse than fourth in nine starts before drifting to sixth his last out. Cheap Thrill and Jack’s Cruze are threats in the evening sixth, though Full Eclipse starts 5-to-2 on the morning line. Kiowa Lover Girl starts on the preferred inside in the 10th and should be well backed. Top payoffs: The Top 10 payouts for last week.

Nadal upset by German qualifier DOHA, Qatar — Defending champion Rafael Nadal was ushered to the exit, while top-seeded Novak Djokovic cruised through his first match of the season at the Qatar Open on Tuesday. The second-seeded Nadal, showing desire but displaying a rusty game, was upset by German qualifier Michael Berrer 1-6, 6-3, 6-4 in the first round. This was Nadal’s first match since losing in the Basel quarterfinals to 17-year-old Borna Coric of Croatia in October. The Spaniard spent much of the autumn suffering from appendicitis and underwent an appendectomy on Nov. 3. Top-ranked Djokovic started off his 2015 season with a 6-2, 6-1 win in a 59-minute match against fellow Serbian Dusan Lajovic. Djokovic put 72 percent of his first serve in play and was successful on five of six break point opportunities. Djokovic withdrew from the Abu Dhabi exhibition final last week with the flu, but showed no lingering signs of illness against Lajovic. Leafs fire Carlyle after rough road trip TORONTO — Randy Carlyle was fired as coach of the Toronto Maple Leafs on Tuesday following a road trip in which the team lost five of seven games and showed few signs it would regain the promise from earlier in the season. The dismissal comes after 40 games, with Toronto 21-16-3, fourth in the Atlantic Division and holding one of the two wild-card spots in the Eastern Conference. The Maple Leafs have struggled on defense and played erratically.

CLASSIFIEDSPage C8 | The News Herald | Wednesday, January 7, 2015 James, My 1999 Chevy Astro Van with a 4.3L engine will not start in the mornings, sometimes. It turns over great and just spits and coughs. Come back a couple of hours later, it starts and runs great. No problems at all. I have had two shops look at it, and of course, it starts right up for them and never gave them any trouble running. I listen to your show on Saturday morning and sometimes catch your show on TV when I am getting ready for work. I figured if this problem is a common one, you would know where to look. The truck has 137,000 miles on it, the fuel pump is new along with my ignition switch and spark plugs, wires, cap and rotor. New to me that all of these parts have been changed to solve this problem over the last three years. I do know it has spark, proper fuel pressure, it has injector pulse everything to make it run. Just some mornings it just cranks and cranks and pops and spits and coughs. Help me if you can! Ron Wow, your truck sounds like it has a serious problem in the morning with all this coughing spitting and not running. But don’t worry, this is a common problem that many an old time GM guy has seen time and time again. I have seen this problem plague many a GM owner who have this 4.3L engine design. It normally happens about six months to a year after a “maintenance tune up” has been performed by a repair shop. Plugs have been changed, distributor cap and rotor, plug wires, air filter, fuel filter and a plethora of other needed maintenance have been completed. To verify I am correct you will need to verify how much spark you have at the spark plug. I know you say you have spark, but if your distributor cap has condensation inside it, the spark will be very weak, or no spark to the spark plugs. This problem is due to not using a GM distributor cap and rotor purchased from GM. Yep, you heard me right. That aftermarket cap and rotor will work, but not for long in a high humidity environment. With Panama City’s high humidity and cool and warm days in the winter, you get condensation in everything that has air space, from the oil crankcase to the inside of the distributor cap. This is why you have days the van starts and then you have days were it spits and coughs. Tech tip: When doing a maintenance tune up on ANY car or truck use only original equipment ignition parts (distributor cap, rotor, spark plugs, coils etc). When replacing ignition parts use dielectric grease on all connections including the end of spark plugs and wires when they are replaced or disturbed.
