The Panama City Beach City Council at its last meeting shot down a motion by Councilman Keith Curry and seconded by Councilwoman Josie Strange to let the issue die. Instead, Gisbert said Monday he will bring back several options to the council, most likely a couple of meetings from now, to see whether they want to move ahead. “I’m going to start meeting again with the haulers and find out what options are available and what options are not,” he said. “I have to meet with the lawyer and find out what we can put rules to and not put rules to.” He said the problem is people who have not hired haulers and put their garbage in someone else’s can, adding that that does not sound problematic. “But (the garbage) is a problem when they put it on the trunk of their car instead of in the trunk of their car,” Gisbert said. “They don’t want to stink up the trunk, then it falls off the trunk of the car and the city has to pick it up because it’s somewhere on the highway. It’s also a problem because the city cannot have public garbage cans, because what happens is PCB manager to bring back options for garbage service MARIO GISBERT SEE GARBAGE SERVICE | A3 By CHRIS OLWELL 747-5079 | @PCNHchriso colwell@pcnh.com PANAMA CITY — The Florida Department of Transportation has finished acquiring the property it needs to build a massive flyover to clear up traffic congestion at the intersection of U.S. 98 and 23rd Street. The FDOT now is demolishing structures, including several lowcost motels, to clear the properties to make room for construction of the $73 million project, which is scheduled to begin this summer, agency spokesman Ian Satter said. “Luckily for us, the right of way acquisition that we needed for this project has gone pretty smoothly,” Satter said. FDOT spent about $32.5 million to acquire 33 parcels to make way for the project, he said. That will take some, but not all, of those properties off the tax rolls, Panama City City Manager Jeff Brown said. Brown estimated (based on the $32.5 million figure from Satter and the assumption that FDOT might have paid a little more than the fair market value to placate property owners) the city would lose a little more than $100,000 annually in tax revenue. That’s a relatively small price to pay for a flyover that will benefit anyone who drives in Properties purchased Flyover work is expected to begin this summer SEE FLYOVER | A3 Photos by PATTI BLAKE | The News Herald A sign outside Los Antojitos restaurant says the business will be open 38 more days.

By COLLIN BREAUX 747-5081 | @CollinBreaux Cbreaux2@pcnh.com PANAMA CITY — Opening a pre-K education center to help students prepare for kindergarten was one option discussed Tuesday during the first Bay District School Board meeting of 2015. The district provided a slide presentation on problems and solutions to improving pre-K performance, noting that while young children who participate in high-quality pre-K programs enter school at a higher level of readiness to learn than their peers, the district was “still not closing the achievement gap.” Students in voluntary pre-K programs who need extra help were said by the district to still be struggling in kindergarten as compared to some of their peers. During the presentation, a district slide said a pre-K center that serves students who need extra assistance will help. “This center could offer an extended day, which will assist our families who often struggle to afford care beyond the free threehour day,” the district’s presentation said. It was expected the extended day would enable more services to be given to students in need. Resident Leonard Hall said during the public comments portion of the meeting that he thinks kindergarten students are unprepared. Superintendent Bill Husfelt said he agreed with Hall on certain points, but they disagreed on other matters. Hall said the district should decide a curriculum for children 3 years old and perhaps younger to help prepare them for school. He said the matter of underperforming students came down to an individual’s work ethic, but that politicians and the media sometimes indicate such underperformance depends on the teacher. The district’s presentation stated that studies estimate over the course of children’s lives, pre-K programs save the public between $3 and $10 for every $1 spent.

Principal seeks food cans to defend against school intruders An eastern Alabama school principal is asking students to bring cans of food such as corn and peas as a way of fighting off a school intruder. W.F. Burns Middle School Principal Priscella Holley said in a Friday letter to parents that a can could stun an intruder “or even knock him out” until police arrive. Holley wrote that the cans would empower students if an intruder enters their classroom at the school in Valley. Chambers County Schools Superintendent Kelli Hodge said the letter was sent after school employees received training from Auburn University’s public safety department. Hodge said throwing cans or other items would be a last resort for students unable to evacuate. She said the cans would be stored in classrooms and students would not be carrying them around school. TORONTO Alberta will likely face recession because of low oil prices, think-tank says A Canadian economic think-tank said Alberta’s oil-heavy economy likely will dip into recession as oil prices continue to plunge. The Conference Board of Canada said Tuesday that the western Canadian province’s latest employment and new housing start numbers are holding steady, but that Alberta will slip into recession if oil prices stay low. The price of a barrel of oil in recent months has plummeted from $105 in June to less than $50 on Tuesday — its lowest price in six years. Alberta has the world’s third-largest oil reserves after Saudi Arabia and Venezuela. Its oil sands are the single largest source of U.S. oil imports. SEATTLE Black lab likes to take solo bus ride to her dog park stop A black Labrador named Eclipse just wants to get to the dog park. So if her owner takes too long finishing his cigarette, and their bus arrives, she climbs aboard solo and rides to her stop — to the delight of fellow Seattle bus passengers. Radio host Miles Montgomery was amazed to see the pooch get off the bus, without an owner, at a dog park last week. The dog and her owner, Jeff Young, live right near a bus stop. In Young’s words, “She’s a bus-riding, sidewalkwalking dog.” Young said his dog sometimes gets on the bus without him, and he catches up with her at the dog park three or four stops away. Bus riders report she hops onto seats next to strangers and watches out the window for her stop. Said commuter Tiona Rainwater, “All the bus drivers know her ... she makes everybody happy.” Republicans attack Obama’s agenda WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama said Tuesday that recent cyberthreats to Sony and the military’s U.S. Central Command are reminders of the serious threats facing the nation. But an Associated Press review shows that some of his plans are retreads from years past. Obama laid out his plans this week as part of a push for new cybersecurity legislation — a week before his State of the Union address — that increases government information-sharing and protects businesses from lawsuits for revealing cyberthreats. Yet the president’s proposals are similar to congressional legislation that has been languishing on Capitol Hill, in part over privacy concerns. The White House is hoping a recent spate of cyberattacks and data breaches — including November’s hacking at Sony Pictures Enter tainment, which the administration blamed on North Korea — will spur lawmakers to take up the issue. Privacy advocates also criticized other elements of this plan this week, especially involving datasharing between companies and the government, in light of an ongoing debate about the scope of U.S. government surveillance and bulk-data collection. The president unveiled his plans Tuesday at the National Cybersecurity and Communications Integration Center just outside Washington, saying cyberthreats pose “an enormous challenge” in which the U.S. must be “upping our game.” He said cybercriminals are doing as much damage, or more, than traditional criminals. “As a nation, we are making progress. We are more prepared to deal with cyberattacks, but attackers are getting more sophisticated,” Obama said. “All of us — government and industry — need to be doing better.” A key part of the proposals, which have received support from some Republicans in Congress, would enable cybersecurity informationsharing between U.S. agencies and the private sector. But that sharing has already been taking place — with uneven results — for more than 16 years. President Bill Clinton established the earliest Information Sharing and Analysis Centers in May 1998. These were intended to collect, analyze and distribute warnings about cyberthreats within eight of the most important U.S. industries, including banking, transportation, communications and energy. In 2003, President George W. Bush moved responsibility for the warning centers from the FBI’s now-defunct National Infrastructure Protection Center to the Homeland Security Department. The warning centers have since been expanded to cover 16 critical industries, and others — such as one covering retail stores — have launched separately. Some of the warning centers, such as the ones protecting banks and computer companies, are highly regarded. But others have been marked by uneven cooperation among members and confusion about roles during a cyberattack. N ATI ON & W O RLD B riefs WASHINGTON (AP) — Defiant congressional Republicans attacked President Barack Obama’s agenda from all sides Tuesday, ignoring veto threats and pushing bills to uproot his policies on immigration and Wall Street, force approval of energy pipeline legislation he opposes and make him justify any new federal rules before he makes them. Obama invited his antagonists to the White House for their first face-to-face meeting since the new Republican-controlled Congress convened. But their show of cordiality for the cameras did little to mask the partisan hostilities between Capitol Hill and the White House. “The key now is for us to work as a team,” said Obama, who has issued five veto threats with the new Congress not yet two weeks old. He cited taxes, trade and cybersecurity as areas for potential cooperation, and also told lawmakers he would work with them to come up with a proposal to authorize military force against the Islamic State group. Back at the Capitol, the Senate debated legislation to force the administration to allow construction of the Canada-to-Texas Keystone XL oil pipeline. And the House passed a regulatory reform bill that the White House says would impose “unprecedented and unnecessary” requirements on agencies trying to write rules. It would require more justifications and notice. That was to be followed by votes today on two other bills: One would alter a key section of the 2010 Dodd-Frank financial overhaul in a way that would help banks, and the other would block Obama’s executive actions on immigration, including removal of protections for immigrants who arrived in the country illegally as children. The Keystone bill passed the House last week and is expected to clear the Senate next week and head to Obama’s desk. Obama has threatened to veto all four pieces of legislation. Far from cowed, with the Senate in GOP hands for the first time in eight years Republican lawmakers are ready to make him do it. “I’m a member of Congress; I’m not a potted plant. I don’t take my orders from the White House,” said Rep. Charlie Dent, R-Pa. AP President Barack Obama — speaking at the National Cybersecurity and Communications Integration Center in Arlington, Va., on Tuesday — renewed his call for Congress to pass cybersecurity legislation, including a proposal that encourages companies to share threat information with the government.

The esti mated 250,000 tourists who flooded the beach over the holiday left about 88 tons of trash and 10 truckloads of abandoned tents. The Bay County Tour ist Development Council at the time encouraged Pan ama City Beach and Bay County to adopt universal trash pickup that would require all property own ers to pay a fee for trash pickup. The proposal had been presented several times previously but never got through the City Coun cil or County Commission. There is no mandatory trash service along the beach. That leaves home owners and businesses the option of deciding whether to hire a hauler or find other ways to dump their trash. Bay County Commis sioner Mike Thomas said last summer that it was time for the county and city to adopt mandatory gar bage pickup. The pickup fee could be added onto water bills, which on the beach goes to city and unincorpo rated residents, so a new billing system would not have to be set up. Thomas has said it must be adopted by both the city and county for the plan to work. Gisbert said the chal lenge in the past was the proposals would have given the garbage pickup to one or two haulers, and there are several more than that in the city. State law requires a three-year notice when a hauler is about to be put out of business. Council’s view The Beach Council last week directed Gisbert only to return with proposals in which residents could pick their own haulers. He said Monday he will not bring back proposals that would give any hauler an exclu sive territory. Councilman John Reich ard said council members have been concerned that with franchise agreements, families would no longer be able to pick haulers of their choice. “I’d like to avoid that,” he said. Strange questioned the fairness of forcing resi dents who only live here six months to have to pay a mandatory pickup fee. “Are they going to have to pay for (garbage pickup) year-round?” she said. Gisbert replied that could be the case if they want to maintain their water service, but Strange said residents don’t want to have to turn off their water when they leave. The council tried to address the issue of the cans and bags being an eyesore in August, when it passed an ordinance that garbage cans on resi dential lots fronting Front Beach Road or Oleander Drive can no longer be vis ible to pedestrians on the right of way. Curry at the last meet ing questioned why the city was bringing the issue up again, considering the laws on the books. “In developing a fran chise agreement, what problem are we trying to solve here?” he said. Councilman Rick Rus sell said renters in many neighborhoods think there is garbage pickup and put their bags out by the road. He said the cans will sit there until someone else hauls it or the cans fall over and trash is scattered all over the pavement. Curry said that was a code enforcement issue. “When I hear this word ‘franchise,’ I’m totally against this,” he said. “The next thing you are going to charge me is a fee.” Mayor Gayle Oberst said she is not for manda tory pickup but supports franchise agreements with haulers. “If we had a franchise (with garbage haulers), the city could at least have a little bit of control,” she said. “We could say things like, ‘You need to have ‘X’ trucks in such shape.’ ” GARBAGE SERVICE from Page A1 FLYOVER from Page A1 Panama City, he said. When com pleted, it will shorten commutes and improve safety, Brown said. “The whole of the community,” Brown said. “The benefit is traffic flow will improve through town.” One of the business owners put out is Mynta Harbison, who runs Los Antojitos on U.S. 98. She said she understood the need to fix the traffic problem but thought it wasn’t fair that FDOT didn’t com pensate her for the loss of future earnings. FDOT has allowed Harbison to stay open for the time being. The restaurant will close Feb. 21 before the state takes possession of the property March 1. Harbison said Los Antojitos will reopen at 1236 Beck Ave. in about a year with an expanded menu. She wasn’t sure what the almost 20 fulland part-time employees will do in the meantime. “We’re definitely going to try and find our employees employ ment while we’re closed,” she said. Satter said FDOT designs proj ects such as the flyover with an eye toward keeping such disruptions minimal. “We try to have the least amount of impact on businesses and homes,” he said. While traffic will flow smoother when the flyover is completed, motorists should expect headaches during construction, Brown said. “Everybody is going to have to exercise some patience,” he said.

A grand jury indict ment filed in U.S. District Court in Ohio on Jan. 7 identified the accused man as Michael R. Hoyt, a resident of Cincinnati. A separate criminal complaint said Hoyt was fired last fall from his job at a country club in West Chester, Ohio, where he served drinks to Boeh ner, who is a member. In a subsequent con versation with a police officer, Hoyt said that before leaving, he “did not have time to put something in John Boeh ner’s drink,” according to the complaint. The court paper also said, “Hoyt told the offi cer he was Jesus Christ and that he was going to kill Boehner because Boehner was mean to him at the country club and because Boehner is responsible for Ebola.” According to the crim inal complaint, Hoyt said he had a loaded Beretta .380 automatic pistol and he was going to shoot Boehner. Hoyt volun teered to be taken to a psychiatric hospital and police took his weapon. He currently is being held under a court order for mental evaluation and treatment, and U.S. Cap itol Police and the FBI believe he “poses a cur rent and ongoing cred ible threat” to Boehner, the complaint added. The complaint says Hoyt was treated for a previous psychotic epi sode about two years ago. He was prescribed medication “which he voluntarily stopped tak ing” about six months ago, it added.

Page A4 | The News Herald | Wednesday, January 14, 2015 NATIO N & WORLD WASHINGTON (AP) — Two-thirds of Ameri cans support labeling of genetically modified ingredients on food packages, even if they might not read them, according to an Associated PressGfK poll. Fewer Americans say genetically modified ingredients are important in judging whether a food is healthy. About 4 in 10 said the pres ence of such ingredients was very or extremely important. “If they are cheaper and they taste right to me, I’ll buy it,” says Jay Jaffe, of Philadelphia, who strongly supports labeling. Four things to know about Americans’ support for labeling of genetically modified ingredients: It’s about more than just GMO’s Genetically modified organisms are foods grown from seeds engineered in labs. Jaffe says he has no problem buying GMOs, but he thinks there should be accountability in the food industry. “It should be there and not in small print,” he said of GMO labels. “People should be able to make a choice.” Genetically modified seeds are engineered to have certain traits, such as resistance to her bicides or certain plant diseases. Most of the country’s corn and soybean crop now is geneti cally modified, with much of that becoming animal feed. Modified corn and soybeans also are made into popular processed food ingredients such as corn oil, corn starch, high-fructose corn syrup and soybean oil. Currently, the Food and Drug Administration doesn’t require labeling of genetically modified foods and says those on the market are safe. Con sumer advocates backing labeling say shoppers have a right to know what is in their food, arguing not enough is known about their effects. Few oppose labeling According to the December AP-GfK poll, 66 percent of Americans favor requiring food manufacturers to put labels on products that con tain genetically modified ingredients. Only 7 percent are opposed to the labeling, and 24 percent are neutral. Of those who say it is only moderately impor tant to them if a food contains genetically modified ingredients, 68 percent still favor labeling. And of those who say it isn’t important to them whether a food contains genetically modified ingredients, only 20 percent oppose a labeling requirement. Half of those people are neutral. Support cuts across groups Public support for labeling GMOs was biparti san, with 71 percent of Democrats and 64 percent of Republicans favoring labeling. Among con servative Republicans, more than 6 in 10 favor a labeling requirement. Fifty-six percent of Americans under 30 favor a labeling requirement — the lowest of any age group. Among that age group, 8 percent oppose labeling, however, with most of the remainder saying they are neutral. State labeling efforts are mixed Despite the wide public support, many state efforts have faltered as the food industry and seed companies like Monsanto have aggressively fought attempts to force labeling. Ballot initiatives to require labeling were narrowly defeated in Cali fornia, Washington and Oregon in recent years. Vermont became the first state to require labels for genetically modified foods last year, passing a law in May that will take effect in 2016 if it survives legal challenges. Maine and Con necticut passed laws before Vermont, but those measures don’t take effect unless neighboring states follow suit. Americans back labeling of genetically modified foodsGM O O P I N IO N Family of man killed by police chief vows to seek justice ORANGEBURG, S.C. ( AP) — Relatives of a black man shot and killed by a white, small-town South Carolina police chief said Tuesday they will continue seeking justice for their loved one after a judge declared a mistrial in the former officer’s murder trial. Jurors deliberated for 12 hours before telling Circuit Judge Edgar Dickson about 2 a.m. Tuesday that they were deadlocked and could not reach a verdict. Former Eutawville Police Chief Richard Combs was charged after shooting Bernard Bailey three times in May 2011. In a statement released by family attorney Carl Grant, relatives said they “are not dissuaded from our unswerving pursuit of justice for Bernard Bailey.” They added, “We thank those who have sincerely displayed the courage and continued dedication needed to ensure that justice is for all in this case.” Prosecutor David Pascoe said he will evaluate his case but plans to try Combs again. “I’m going to take a little time, but we’re going forward,” Pascoe said. Pascoe said nine jurors voted to convict Combs. “We just had three jurors we couldn’t convince,” he said. “We’re disappointed we didn’t get a result, but I think both sides feel that way,” said defense attorney Wally Fayssoux, who had argued that Combs shot Bailey in self-defense. The shooting happened as Combs was trying to arrest Bailey on an obstruction of justice warrant that prosecutors contended was trumped up. The defense said the shooting had nothing to do with race and argued Combs fired when caught in the door of Bailey’s moving truck. Throughout the trial, Fayssoux always called Combs “chief.” “The chief was in an impossible position. He made the only decision he could make,” he said. Pascoe called Combs as “the defendant,” called his fired bullets “kill shots” and suggested he was a disgrace to other officers. “The system breaks down when you have rogue police officers gunning down unarmed men,” Pascoe said. After the mistrial was declared, Pascoe quietly talked to Bailey’s family who did not speak with reporters. Several wiped away tears as they walked out after spending 16 straight hours in the Orangeburg County courthouse. Combs showed little reaction and did not talk to reporters. The jurors faced a choice between murder and voluntary manslaughter. Murder carries 30 years to life in prison without parole. Voluntary manslaughter carries two to 30 years in prison, and would have meant Bailey’s killing was illegal but happened in the heat of the moment. Seven weeks before the shooting, Combs had stopped Bailey’s daughter for a broken taillight. She, in turn, phoned her father to come to the side of the road. Later the chief secured a warrant for obstruction of justice, but waited several weeks to serve it until Bailey came to Town Hall the day before his daughter’s trial. Pascoe asserted Combs wanted to make a display of arresting Bailey. After Combs told Bailey he was being arrested for obstruction, witnesses said Bailey left Combs’ office and went to his truck with Combs following. Pascoe said Combs could have stepped away from the truck but instead stood and fired three shots into Bailey. The prosecutor said the truck was stopped and Bailey was trying to give up.

(AP) — Opening statements began Tuesday in the trial of a suburban Chicago police officer accused of acting recklessly by fatally shooting a 95-year-old World War II veteran with a beanbag gun at close range in an effort to subdue him. Several uniformed officers turned up at the courthouse in south suburban Markham to show their support for Park Forest police officer Craig Taylor, who is charged with felony reckless conduct in the 2013 killing of John Wrana. Taylor, 43, was one of several officers who were dispatched to the assisted living facility where Wrana lived on July 26, 2013, after a staff member reported that Wrana had become combative with emergency workers trying to care for him. According to court documents, when the officers entered his room they saw Wrana holding a long metal object that officers believed was a knife or machete, but was actually a shoe horn. Wrana did pick up a knife and threaten the officers with it, and he refused their orders to drop it. One of the officers fired a stun gun at Wrana but missed. Then when Wrana, still holding the knife, moved toward him, Taylor fired the beanbag gun at him, then paused before firing four more times. All of the shots were fired from no more than 8 feet away, according to prosecutors, who have said the “optimum distance” of 15 to 60 feet is spelled out in training standards. Prosecutors said Taylor had other options when he was confronted by Wrana, including leaving and talking to him through the open door. They also said Taylor failed to consider what firing the gun at close range might do to the body of a 95-year old man. Wrana, who was struck in the abdomen, died from internal bleeding, according to the Cook County coroner, who ruled his death a homicide. Officer stands trial in beanbag shooting death of veteran, 95 MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Wiscon sin Gov. Scott Walker, who is eyeing a presidential run, said in his State of the State speech Tuesday that his home state can be a leader in making government more efficient and better-working, while giving few details about plans for solv ing a looming budget shortfall that could sidetrack or delay his tax cut promises. The speech comes amid grow ing speculation about whether Walker will enter what is expected to be a crowded field of Republican candidates for president. Walker used his State of the State to con trast what he says is success in Wisconsin versus dysfunction in Washington, while also defending his first gubernatorial term. He pointed out that unemployment is lower now than when he took office, while taxes have been cut by $2 billion. “Some in Washington believe government should play a growing role in our lives and rarely ques tion its expense,” Walker said. “Others have such disdain for gov ernment that they attempt to keep it from working at all. Instead, we have a chance to lead here in Wisconsin.” Walker is proposing merging two agencies charged with eco nomic development into one and combining several agencies that oversee financial institutions and professional services. He also dipped into foreign affairs, calling on Republicans and Democrats to stand together to denounce terrorist attacks such as the ones in France that included shootings at the newspaper Char lie Hebdo. “We need to proclaim that an attack against freedom-loving peo ple anywhere is an attack against us all,” Walker said. “And we will not allow it.” Walker, who said he’s seriously considering a presidential run, recently hired a veteran national political consultant and he’s scheduled to join other potential GOP hopefuls at a conservative event in Iowa later this month. Walker’s potential run got a bit easier on Monday with news that his friend and fellow Wisconsin ite U.S. Rep. Paul Ryan, the 2012 vice presidential nominee, was not going to seek the presidency in 2016. But others are taking bolder steps. Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush announced that he would be launching a fundraising opera tion and former GOP nominee Mitt Romney has been telling support ers he is seriously considering running. Democrats say that Walker’s presidential consideration is dis tracting him from problems back home, but Walker argues that if things aren’t going well in Wiscon sin, he’ll have no shot at the White House. Walker used his speech to call on the Wisconsin Legislature to pass a school accountability bill. Republicans have introduced con tradictory proposals in the Senate and Assembly, one of which would force failing public schools to turn into independent charters while the other would not. Walker also said he wanted to make sure that no school be required to use Common Core academic standards. Schools are not currently required to adopt the standards, although most have because statewide tests are based on them. The biggest immediate prob lem for Walker is the looming $2.2 billion budget shortfall. Walker promised in his re-elec tion campaign, and has repeated since, that he will lower property taxes in the next budget. But he’s backed off talk of lowering others, like income taxes, and he’s given few details about what he’s going to do to balance the budget. In his speech, Walker only promised to make property taxes lower in four years than they are now. Walker balanced an almost $3 billion budget shortfall in 2011, in part by effectively ending col lective bargaining for most public workers and forcing them to pay more for their pension and health care benefits.

He served in the Navy, survived the attack on Pearl Harbor, and married and started a family just after VE Day. The economic climate continued to improve after the war, and his children were raised in the boom years of plenty. Smart enough to understand that his kids could never relate to his Depression-era childhood, he devised simple methods for their economic education. Necessities, like food, clothes and school supplies were provided, but if the kids wanted something beyond that, they had to negotiate their services for pay. When my cousins would go to their dad and ask for an opportunity to make money, my uncle would smile and say, “OK, let’s bargain.” Then he and his child would discuss in detail what job could be done to earn extra money, what the payment would be, and how the task should be accomplished. After its completion, a careful inspection always ensued before payment was rendered. My cousins understood the concept of working for money and doing a good job long before any of the other children in my family. When they accepted jobs as part-time teen employees, my cousins were prepared for job interviews, knew how to get along with their bosses, and expected their work to be evaluated. They knew how to assess the value of their own services, and how to determine if they deserved a raise; even how to ask for one. Periodically my uncle would bring the kids into his home office and enlist their assistance in monthly bill paying. Each child would be asked to ascertain one bill amount, fill out a check, and address and stamp the envelope. Sometimes they would discuss the family budget, and how much money was allocated for various monthly services. My uncle would even ask the kids’ advice on vacation planning and budgeting. So when the family would travel, the kids knew how much a particular hotel room cost. Soon the kids were chiming in about whether the family should spend their allotted vacation dollars on an upscale dining experience, eat fast food, or make sandwiches in the hotel room. He never lectured about walking six miles each way to school through a dust storm (it’s a snow storm for us from the Midwest). But in a calculated and gentle way, my uncle taught my cousins important homespun economic lessons. Once, money management wasn’t widely discussed with children. Now, smart parents are starting financial literacy and economic empowerment within the family unit at an early age. Margaret R.

McDowell Arbor Outlook NEW YORK (AP) — As oil’s long slide continued, the Energy Department forecast Tuesday that production from U.S. shale opera tors will begin to tail off in the sec ond half of the year. The decline would mark the first such drop in what has been a six-year boom in U.S. onshore crude production. The price of oil fell Tuesday, dipping briefly under $45, before ending down 18 cents to $45.89 a barrel. That’s the lowest since the spring of 2009, and a drop of 58 percent over the past six months. Oil fell after the energy minister for the United Arab Emirates, a member of OPEC, suggested that the cartel will not lower produc tion to reduce global supplies in an effort to reverse falling prices. Brent crude, an international benchmark used to price oil used by many U.S. refineries, fell 84 cents to close at $46.59 a barrel in London. Low crude prices are leading to significant savings for buyers of diesel, gasoline, jet fuel and heat ing oil. Typical U.S. households will spend $750 less on gasoline this year than in 2014, because the average gasoline price will fall to $2.33 per gallon, from $3.36 last year, the Energy Department also forecast Tuesday. The national average stood at $2.12 a gallon Tuesday, according to AAA, the lowest in nearly six years. The forecast was part of a monthly outlook released by the Energy Department’s Energy Information Administration. It was EIA’s first outlook to include forecasts for 2016. Onshore fields in North Dakota, Texas and elsewhere have driven the enormous increase in U.S. crude oil production over the past 6 years. That rise, combined with more supplies from Iraq, Canada and elsewhere, is the main factor pulling down global oil prices. But those lower prices have already begun to force drillers to delay or cancel plans for new exploration, and the EIA expects a slip in onshore production in the second half of this year. Production from those fields is expected to peak at 7.4 million barrels per day in May, and fall to 7.2 million barrels per day by December. “Many oil companies have cut back on their exploration drill ing in response to falling crude prices,” EIA Administrator Adam Sieminski said in a statement. For the year, average U.S. production, including output from Alaska and the Gulf of Mexico, is still expected to rise, but by the slowest rate in four years. If oil prices rise as expected in 2016, onshore oil production should climb again, and reach 9.5 mil lion barrels per day, the second highest ever, after 1970’s record 9.6 million barrels. But the EIA says it is a par ticularly tough time to predict future prices, especially in dis tant months. The market signals that the agency uses to forecast prices are all over the place, and that uncertainty limits its ability to predict production levels. EIA forecasts that the aver age global price of crude will be $58 in 2015, and rise to $75 next year as demand for oil increases and global supply growth slows. But to illustrate the uncertainty in the market, it said December oil prices could range between $28 and $112 per barrel. “Perhaps issuing projections is a fool’s game,” said Howard Gruenspecht, EIA’s deputy administrator, in a conference call with reporters.

AP A 7.5-ounce can of Coca-cola, left, is posed Monday next to a 12-ounce can for comparison in Philadelphia. NEW YORK (AP) — Americans want to cut back on soda, and they’re willing to pay more to do it. With people drinking less soda amid health concerns, Coke and Pepsi are push ing smaller cans and bottles that contain fewer calories and, they say, induce less guilt. That all comes at a price: Those cute little cans can cost more than twice as much per ounce. The shift means 7.5-ounce “mini-cans” and 8-ounce and 8.5-ounce glass and alu minum bottles are taking up more space on supermarket shelves. The cans and bottles have been around for a few years, but Coke and Pepsi are making them more widely available and marketing them more aggressively. As part of its “Share-a-Coke” campaign that printed popular names on cans and bottles last year, for instance, Coke says it distributed a million mini-cans. The focus on pushing smaller pack ages signals a shift from the past couple of decades, when beverage makers measured success by the sheer volume of soda they sold. Yet soda consumption has declined persistently in recent years, with public health officials blaming it for making people fat and calling for special taxes and even warning labels on cans. Soda hit its peak in 1998, when Ameri cans on average drank the equivalent of 576 cans of it a year, according to data from the industry tracker Beverage Digest. That figure was down to about 450 cans a year in 2013. Instead of fighting what seems to be a losing battle, Coke and Pepsi are pushing smaller cans and bottles that give their prod ucts a sense of newness among the grow ing proliferation of beverage choices. The companies also say the tiny sizes cater to people’s desire for more modest servings. “Coca-Cola is so delicious, but it’s like sun tanning or cigarettes — they’re these wonderful things that we now know are horrible for us,” said Lauren Utvich, a 31-year-old food stylist in New York, who bought the Coke mini-cans when she first spotted them. Utvich doesn’t normally drink soda, but she likes that the mini-cans turn Coke into a relatively guiltless treat. But that’s not the only reason she bought them. “Let’s be honest. I like them because they’re freaking adorable,” said Utvich, who didn’t pay atten tion to how much they cost. During a presentation in November, Coke’s North American president Sandy Douglas said the health and wellness trend has set up “a tremendous opportunity for the Coca-Cola brand with our smaller packages.” He noted a regular 12-ounce can of Coke on average sells for 31 cents. By compari son, a 7.5-ounce mini-can sells for 40 cents. That translates to 2.6 cents-per-ounce for a regular can, versus 5.3 cents-per ounce for the mini version. Coca-Cola said that while it might be selling less soda, smaller packs are pushing up revenue. Sales of Coke’s smaller sizes — which include a 1.25-liter bottle as an alternative to the 2-liter bottle — were up 9 percent last year through October, accord ing to the presentation by Douglas. By com parison, sales of its 12-ounce cans and 2-liter bottles edged up 0.1 percent. That doesn’t mean Coke and Pepsi are abandoning their more generous servings, which still dominate the industry. And it’s not clear how big the appetite for the newer cans and bottles can grow over time. In 2013, mini-cans accounted for 1.1 percent of sales volume in supermarkets, according to Beverage Digest. But they accounted for 2.4 percent of sales dollars, more than dou ble their volume share. Bonnie Herzog, a Wells Fargo beverage industry analyst, said the smaller options are part of how Coke is repositioning itself amid changing habits around soda. She noted the company also is pushing Coke Life, a reduced-calorie drink sweetened with a mix of sugar and stevia. “It’s responsible and it’s realistic,” Her zog said, noting the smaller sizes are mar keted as “moments of pleasure” people don’t have to give up.

Page A6 | The News Herald | Wednesday, January 14, 2015 Viewpoints Tim Thompson, Publisher Mike Cazalas, Editor S. Brady Calhoun, Editorial Page Editor 747-5075 | @sbradycalhoun bcalhoun@pcnh.com T he greatest thing about the Internet is that anyone anywhere can say whatever they want, usually without fear of legal — or lethal — reprisal. The worst thing about the Internet is that anyone, anywhere, including terrorists, extortionists, racists, pedophiles, misogynists, vapid celebrities, bullies, liars, fabulists, hacks and politicians can say whatever they want usually without fear of legal —or lethal —reprisal. The initial response to the terrorist attacks in France on the satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo was one of almost universal solidarity with the people and their families who were senselessly killed in a cowardly attempt to stifle free speech. That solidarity included a march on Sunday that included 3.7 million people and numerous world leaders — although no one of note from the U.S. Many of them held up pens and carried signs with the phrase, “Je suis Charlie,” or “I am Charlie.” Unfortunately, at times like these, universal solidarity isn’t enough for some. You will recognize some of these second, third and fourth responses from previous tragedies. One of them is the tuttutting of “Other fanatical groups besides Muslims” who engage in violence. Another is that Western countries often use brutal tactics while at war. Another, tries to “explain” what the victims did that were so “offensive.” In this case some argue that Charlie Hebdo delighted in its caricatures of Muslims but limited its attacks on Jews. Also, according to these new scholars on French culture, the magazine was frequently racist. Even if that were true, and we’re not convinced that it is, it is irrelevant to the current situation. No drawing, no matter how offensive, is so out of bounds that its author should be killed, imprisoned or tortured over it. Let’s all agree that the real red line that should be drawn here is the one between those who resort to violence when they are offended and those who always choose to counter speech they dispute with more (non-violent) speech. One point that we do find valid is that terrorists are far from the only ones who use violence and the threat of violence and imprisonment to silence their critics. Gawker’s Andy Cush noted the various heads of state who claimed to stand behind freedom of the press after the attacks but who are, in reality, often at war with the media in their own countries. The list includes U.K. Prime Minister David Cameron, who forced newspaper employees to destroy their hard drives after the Edward Snowden leaks, Irish officials who still say that blasphemy is a criminal offense, and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu who is accused by reporters without borders of “deliberate targeting” of news professionals with arrest and intimidation during the 2014 Gaza conflict. The list also includes Russia, Greece, Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Egypt and plenty of others. And, despite this nation’s long history of free speech, there are numerous cases of various factions of the U.S. government attempting to intimidate and stifle reporters. Just Monday it was announced that James Risen, a New York Times reporter, will not be called to testify at a leak trial. The move ends a seven-year legal fight over whether he could be forced to identify confidential sources. Finally, in our view Cameron and the heads of the FBI and the Department of Justice should make the list of free speech enemies twice. If he is re-elected, the prime minister promises a “comprehensive piece of legislation” to allegedly prevent users from sending encrypted cell phone messages. You also might recall that during the past several months Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr., FBI Director James B. Comey and John J. Escalante, chief of detectives for Chicago’s police department have been arguing that Apple, Google and other cell phone manufacturers should not put top notch privacy controls on their devices just in case federal agents need to snoop on someone’s phone. The claim made by government officials is that if the public will just give up a little bit more of their right to privacy, we will all be kept safe from terrorism, crime and other problems. As we wrote in October, the government’s position on this issue is like arguing homeowners should leave their doors unlocked just in case police officers ever need to rush in and stop a crime. Unfortunately, when you hand any government a gun you can never be certain where, or at whom, they will aim.

R ICK M C K EE | The Augusta Chronicle The road to civilization S igmund Freud said the founder of civilization was the first person who hurled an insult instead of a rock. He was almost right. The true founder was the first person to respond to an insult with an insult of his own. Some modern-day people have yet to reach the stage achieved by some of our ancient forebears. Muslims who treat offensive depictions of the prophet Muhammad as grounds for execution are the most conspicuous examples of that tragic failure to evolve. In the 21st century, it is a true shock to be reminded that anyone could regard a cartoon as a legitimate cause to slaughter human beings. All of us have been confronted with pronouncements and images we find despicable or unspeakable. But we have overcome the childish impulse to use violence to punish or silence the offender. We in Western societies almost always defer to the wisdom of Supreme Court Justice Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr., who said the basis of the First Amendment is “not free thought for those who agree with us but freedom for the thought that we hate.” That sentiment is so familiar to American ears that it’s easy to forget how truly revolutionary it is, and how recently it became generally accepted. It was just half a century ago that Americans were beaten and murdered in some places for doing nothing more than publicly advocating black equality. It was only a century ago that hundreds of people were prosecuted for opposing U.S participation in World War I. Socialist leader Eugene Debs was sentenced to 10 years in prison for telling an audience, “You need to know that you are fit for something better than slavery and cannon fodder.” Someone was executed in Spain for religious heresy at the behest of the Roman Catholic Church in 1826. In having adherents who believe they have a duty to stamp out intolerable ideas by any means necessary, Islam is no different from many religions as they have been practiced at some point in history — or from many political movements the world has seen. It is unusual only because it still has a significant number of such followers today, acting on their convictions. They are a tiny minority of the world’s Muslims, though. A 2013 Pew Research survey found, “Half or more of Muslims in most countries surveyed say that suicide bombing and other acts of violence that target civilians can never be justified in the name of Islam” — with support for such tactics declining in recent years. The number actually committing such crimes is a tiny share of the world’s 1.6 billion Muslims. Any support for terrorism is too much, and atrocities like the attack on Charlie Hebdo in Paris implicate some interpretations of Islam. But we should avoid the smug assumption that we are blameless or that religion plays no role in our errors. White American Christians are especially inclined to favor the use of torture against suspected terrorists. Does that mean there is something inherently savage in the teachings of Jesus? Does it mean Christianity is incapable of embracing peace and tolerance? The process of civilizing humanity is a long, slow ordeal that includes occasional reversals, and we are further along than many Muslim societies. Westerners are hardly perfect, but we can take immense pride in making the sanctity of individual conscience a centerpiece of our lives. The war against Islamist extremism is a war between the ideals of free thought and the urge to enforce uniform beliefs at the point of a gun. What most Westerners long ago realized is something Muslim extremists have not: In the battle of ideas, reason is the only weapon. For any cause to resort to murder and persecution against those who disagree is an admission of failure. A system of beliefs that cannot rely on persuasion to win over doubters is a weak and defective one. As the English Puritan poet John Milton said of truth, “Let her and Falsehood grapple; who ever knew Truth put to the worse in a free and open encounter?” He wrote that in 1644, a long time before most Christians or most English came to truly practice what he preached. The modern groups that have yet to arrive at that wisdom will probably get there eventually. It can’t happen soon enough. Steve Chapman is a member of the Chicago Tribune editorial board and a columnist with Creators Syndicate. This concerns the decision made sometime earlier this summer to stop performing civil wedding ceremonies in the Clerk of the Circuit Court for “budgetary reasons.” I hope for the sake of current and future folks, gay, lesbian as well as straight, you will find the resources and/or the will to change this policy. I used to live in Panama City and still have family and friends there that mean a great deal to me. I went to junior high, high school and Gulf Coast Community College there and have wonderful memories of my time growing up in this great community. Yet, I needed to continue my education elsewhere. In addition, I felt I needed to move where I could be who I was. Who I am. Unfortunately, I didn’t believe that was possible in Panama City in 1983. If I still lived there on Jan. 6, 2015, I would have had to travel to Pensacola to have a civil marriage ceremony. Instead, I traveled 4 miles to my local courthouse and obtained a marriage license and civil ceremony with my partner of 32 years with the professionalism and genuine support of the employees of the Hillsborough County Clerk of the Circuit Court. They couldn’t have been happier for us or more respectful of our union. I can only hope that your citizens who wish to marry in Panama City can do so in the very place they obtain their marriage license. I do not see how “budgetary reasons” are a reasonable excuse since Pasco County found a way around their initial objections by bringing in public notaries and a judge who volunteered. Ultimately, if the Clerk of the Circuit Court in Panama City has the will, they will find a way to represent all of their citizens. I am hopeful that fairness wins out. C AROLYN B ARNES Plant City Christians won’t change The fall of the Berlin Wall was the culmination of a great wave of freedom from tyranny launched, in a large part, by Ronald Reagan, and comparing that event to the legalization of same-sex marriage (Jan. 7 “Our View: Checks, balances and gay marriage”) is foolish. In the view of most Christians, the decision of whether samesex relationships are morally repugnant is a personal one, but many Christians view it as sin and they will not give their approval. It appears to many Christians that society has taken the view that if you just bully Christianity enough, it will find a way to change its view of homosexuality, and all will be well. After all, some Christians today are fine with sexual revolution innovations, such as abortion and easy divorce. Unfortunately, Bible-based Christianity has become impolitic in the eyes of many, but from the start, Christians embodied a different way of life. From the start, they understood that sex in marriage is a gift from God, and that sexual perversion does great harm to a society: just look at the Roman Empire. From the start, Christians understood the naturalness of sex between a male and female in marriage. During its 2,000 years of existence, Christianity has been surprisingly consistent in holding the line on what our faith views as fundamental precepts of Christian ethics, some of which make same-sex marriage an impossibility. Today, many gay-marriage proponents don’t just want a live-and-let-live relationship with Christianity, they want to force Christianity to affirm same-sex marriage. They do this, I think, because they believe very strongly in the rights of gays to marry, but also largely because they think that it will only take moderate prodding to get Christianity to cave in. History and Christianity’s own selfunderstanding suggest, however, that such an outcome is not in the cards. In short, each person has to decide what they believe is right, but asking those that believe samesex marriage is a sin to condone such unions is nothing but wrong.

The corruption case was the only one keeping the 86-year-old Mubarak behind bars. The autocratic former president already has been cleared over the killings of protesters during Egypt’s 2011 uprising that toppled him. Tuesday’s ruling by the Appeals Court — a top tribunal based in Cairo — overturned a verdict last May that sentenced Mubarak to three years’ imprisonment and his two sons, Alaa and Gamal, to four years in prison each. Four other defendants in the case were acquitted. Mubarak’s lawyers had appealed that verdict. Although the ruling paved the way for Mubarak’s imminent release, there was no explicit statement from the authorities that he would leave as a free man from the Cairo hospital where he has been held. There also were conflicting statements by officials on whether the release would take place. An official at the chief prosecutor’s office said “paperwork was being processed” for Mubarak’s release. The official declined to speculate if and when that could happen. However, an unnamed security official told the state-run MENA news agency that Mubarak will remain in detention since the Appeals Court ruling didn’t include a release order. “The ruling of the Appeals Court didn’t include the release and it is in the hands of the general prosecution or the new court handling the case,” MENA quoted the official as saying. The apparent confusion over the release stems from discrepancies in calculating the time Mubarak spent in pre-trial detention and on legal technicalities related to his status — whether he was in detention over corruption charges or not — when he was referred to court. Since his detention in April 2011, Mubarak has spent most of his time in custody in a military hospital in the Cairo suburb of Maadi. According to two senior security officials, Mubarak, even if released, would remain in the same hospital for security reasons. All officials spoke on condition of anonymity. COLOMBO, Sri Lanka (AP) — Pope Francis brought calls for reconciliation and justice to Sri Lanka on Tuesday as he began a weeklong Asian tour, saying the island nation can’t fully heal from a quarter-century of brutal civil war without pursuing the truth about abuses that were committed. The 78-year-old pope arrived in Colombo after an overnight flight from Rome and immediately spent almost two hours under a scorching sun greeting dignitaries and well-wishers along the 18-mile route into town. The effects were immediate: A weary and delayed Francis skipped a lunchtime meeting with Sri Lanka’s bishops to rest before completing the rest of his grueling day. “The health of the pope is good,” the Vatican spokesman, the Rev. Federico Lombardi, assured late Tuesday. “He was a little tired after the 28 kilometers under the sun, but now he has again his strength.” Francis is the first pope to visit Sri Lanka since the government crushed a 25-year civil war by ethnic Tamil rebels demanding an independent Tamil nation because of perceived discrimination by governments dominated by the Sinhalese majority. U.N. estimates say 80,000 to 100,000 people were killed during the war, which ended in 2009; other reports suggest the toll could be much higher. With 40 costumed elephants lining the airport road behind him and a 21-cannon salute booming over the tarmac, Francis said that finding true peace after so much bloodshed “can only be done by overcoming evil with good, and by cultivating those virtues which foster reconciliation, solidarity and peace.” He didn’t specifically mention Sri Lanka’s refusal to cooperate with a U.N. investigation into alleged war crimes committed in the final months of the war. But he said, “The process of healing also needs to include the pursuit of truth, not for the sake of opening old wounds, but rather as a necessary means of promoting justice, healing and unity.” A 2011 U.N. report said up to 40,000 Tamil civilians might have been killed in the last months of the civil war, and accused both sides of serious human rights violations. It said the government was suspected of deliberately shelling civilians and hospitals and preventing food and medicine from getting to civilians trapped in the war zone. The Tamil Tiger rebels were accused of recruiting child soldiers and holding civilians as human shields and firing from among them. A few months after the U.N. report was released, the government of longtime President Mahinda Rajapaksa released its own Lessons Learnt and Reconciliation Commission findings, which concluded that Sri Lanka’s military didn’t intentionally target civilians at the end of the war and that the rebels routinely violated international humanitarian law. Pope backs search for wartime truth in Sri Lanka AP Pope Francis waves to people waiting on a road to welcome him Tuesday on the outskirts of Colombo, Sri Lanka. Pope Francis arrived in Sri Lanka on Tuesday at the start of a weeklong Asian tour saying the island nation can’t fully heal from a quarter-century of ethnic civil war without pursuing truth for the injustices committed. Divers retrieve second black box from AirAsia jet PANGKALAN BUN, Indonesia (AP) — Divers retrieved the crashed AirAsia plane’s second black box from the bottom of the Java Sea on Tuesday, giving experts essential tools to piece together what brought down Flight 8501. The cockpit voice recorder was freed from beneath heavy wreckage at a depth of about 100 feet, a day after the flight data recorder was recovered, said Tonny Budiono, sea navigation director at the Transportation Ministry. “Thank God,” he said. “This is good news for investigators to reveal the cause of the plane crash.” The device will be flown to the capital, Jakarta, to be analyzed with the other black box, a process that could take up to two weeks. Since it records in a twohour loop, all discussions between the captain and copilot should be available. The plane disappeared from radar less than halfway into a two-hour flight from Surabaya, Indonesia, to Singapore on Dec. 28. It was carrying 162 people, but only 48 bodies have been recovered. The retrieval of the second black box is the latest boost in the slowmoving hunt in the shallow, murky stretch of ocean. During the weekend, the tail of the Airbus A320 was recovered. The black boxes are normally inside the tail, but were missing when the wreckage was pulled to the surface. The devices were located after three Indonesian ships detected strong “pings” being emitted from their beacons. Powerful currents, large waves and blinding silt have hindered divers’ efforts throughout the search, but they took advantage of calmer early morning conditions on Monday and Tuesday to recover the instruments. AP Head of Indonesian National Transportation Safety Committee Tatang Kurniadi shows the newly recovered Cockpit Voice Recorder on Tuesday from the ill-fated AirAsia Flight 8501.

Food B Section Facebook.com/ panamacitynewsherald Twitter: @The_News_Herald www.newsherald.com PANAMA CITY NEWS HERALD WEDNESDAY January 14, 2015 By JAN WADDY 747-5072 | @JanWaddy1 jwaddy@pcnh.com Sometimes it’s not just a new recipe that inspires cooks, but a new culture. When I stopped by Emerald Coast Olive Oil in Pier Park on Jan. 2, Wendy Lechner was still ensuring good luck with a recipe for Indian Black-Eyed Peas. She was so excited about the flavors, she offered me a bite of the salad — and then I was excited, too. “I got everything I needed for the recipe at Indo-Pak,” said Wendy, a food historian who co-owns Emerald Coast Olive Oil with her sister, Lorraine Lechner. Wendy admitted she had to cut down the spice after the first time she made the recipe, but experimenting with different flavors is nothing new for her. For seven years, she and her sister ran a cooking school on the island of St. Kitts in the Caribbean, using a mix of Arawakian ingredients, African cooking and European recipes that had been blended through generations. But Wendy, who later wrote “Caribbean Cooks! Simply Delicious Recipes of the West Indies,” was more recently inspired by the mix of cultures at Indo-Pak International Food Store, 1504 W. 15th St., Panama City. “The owner was simmering something in a pot, and people from all different cultures were swapping recipes,” she recalled. “Where else are you going to find that here?” Indo-Pak carries a variety of Turkish, Iranian, Indian, Pakistani, Middle Eastern, Jamaican, Arabic and Mexican foods, from fresh vegetables to dried lentils and rice, including Basmati for diabetics, spices, oils, sauces, frozen foods and halal meat, blood-drained. Owner Malik Awan picks up fresh produce every two weeks from Miami, with the next shipment arriving Jan. 21. Wendy makes sure to stop by for jackfruit. “Jackfruit doesn’t have much flavor, but you can make vegetarian barbecue ‘pork’ with it. It’s sort of stringy and absorbs flavors. I’m not a vegetarian, but I have lots of friends who are,” she said. Other days, she is lucky enough to find Malik’s daughter, Tayyaba, preparing a dish, such as Chicken Biryani in Indo-Pak’s kitchen. “We have a kitchen for us here. When people see and smell it, they have to eat,” said Malik, who is happy to share. “We want people to eat healthy.” A recent shopping trip led Wendy to pick up ingredients for Indian Black-Eyed Peas and Spinach and Paneer Curry, recipes she found in an old Indian cookbook, “What’s Cooking Indian” by Shehzad Husain, she had purchased at Goodwill. “I changed the quantities of some ingredients because they called for lots of oil and way too many chilies. I made them healthier and more in line with my American palate instead of smokin’ hot,” Wendy admitted. “That paneer is amazing. It’s like a block of unflavored cheese so you can ‘flavor’ it any way you want, and it fries and browns beautifully.” Indo-Pak also sells cheese from France, Bulgaria, Turkey and Egypt, as well as whole milk yogurt and yogurt drinks. “We eat mostly Indian-Pakistani dishes,” Malik said. “My kids eat everything.” Originally from Pakistan, the family opened Indo-Pak about four years ago, not long after coming to the U.S. Malik’s son, Faisal, showed me three freezers with lamb, organic chicken, turkey, tilapia, goat feet, cow feet and oxtail. “Jamaicans like oxtail and goat meat. A lot of Americans come and buy lamb and goat from us, veal — young, 6 months to 8 months. That makes a good steak, very delicious, and they get spices and make kebabs,” said Malik, who added, “Meat and vegetables cooked in their own liquid have better taste.” He held up a bag of Moong whole beans: “These lentils have a lot of fiber. Bring to a boil, and when sizzling, add a little pepper and eat. Masoor dal, a red split lentil — you can make soup with this.” Malik travels to Atlanta, Tallahassee and Orlando to pick up food deliveries and shop. After 16-hour days, he turns to a little natural relief for aching muscles. “Boil real good milk, add half teaspoon of turmeric and honey,” he said. “Drink it and sleep like a baby.” Indian Black-Eyed Peas 1 cup dry or 2 cups fresh or canned black-eyed peas 1 tablespoon vegetable or olive oil 2 medium onions, thinly sliced vertically 1 teaspoon grated ginger root 1 teaspoon minced garlic teaspoon cayenne pepper 1 teaspoon salt, or to taste 1 teaspoon ground coriander 1 teaspoon ground cumin 2/3 cup water Very finely sliced green chili (optional) Fresh cilantro (optional) 1 tablespoon lemon juice Rinse and soak the dried peas overnight. The next day, place the peas (either soaked or fresh) in a pot of water and simmer 20-30 minutes. If using canned peas, just drain and rinse. Heat the oil in a skillet and add the onions. Saut until golden brown, 5 minutes. Add the ginger, garlic, cayenne, salt, coriander and cumin. Saut 4 minutes. Add the water to the pan and cover. Cook until the water has evaporated, about 5 minutes. Remove the onion mixture from the heat and add the peas. Place in a serving bowl and top with the green chilies, cilantro and lemon juice. This dish can be served hot or at room temperature.

Add the paneer and fry, stirring occasionally until golden brown. Drain on a paper towel. In a large skillet, add 2 tablespoons oil and the tomatoes, stir-frying for about 5 minutes. Add the cumin, chili powder and salt; mix well. Add the spinach and stir-fry over low heat for 4-6 minutes until softened but not mushy. Transfer to a serving dish and top with the green chilies. This is great with plain rice.

The Thai Chicken Salad was inspired by her time cooking at Hawk’s Nest Grille & Spirits on Beach Drive more than a decade ago. “I worked there so long. We finally figured it out,” Johnston said. “I’ve sold more Thai Chicken Salad than anything.” A Romaine mix with spinach becomes the bed for grilled chicken breast strips with chow mein noodles, roasted peanuts, mandarin oranges and green onions sprinkled in. Then International Flavors Bring cultural dishes home; make them your own JAN WADDY | PanamaCity.com The Thai Chicken Salad with Peanut Butter Citrus Dressing at Four Winds Grille & Spirits on Bayview Avenue in St. Andrews was inspired by a recipe from Hawk’s Nest Grille & Spirits on Beach Drive in Panama City, which closed about 10 years ago. Owner Malik Awan’s Indo-Pak International Food Store specializes in Indian, Pakistani and Middle Eastern foods, from prepared frozen foods to halal chicken, goat, lamb, fresh vegetables, lentils and spices.

Sometimes Thai seasoning can get a little hot for me. There is a lot of spinach and it is a good mixture of textures and flavors. I like the noodles.” She and her husband are visiting this week from the Dayton, Ohio, area. “We are staying in Panama City Beach, but we had heard St. Andrews was an interesting historic town,” she said. Johnston admitted the Peanut Butter Citrus Dressing took a few times to get it right. “Because we were trying to reproduce the salad dressing from Hawk’s Nest, it took four people and eight tries,” said Johnston, who prefers to leave her Jif extra crunchy peanut butter chunky when making the dressing. “For a retirement party, I am going to do flank steak on a skewer and dip it in. As it chargrills, I will brush it with it and serve it on the side.” Peanut Butter Citrus Dressing 1 cup water cup brown sugar cup chunky peanut butter 1/3 cup soy sauce 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar 2 teaspoons sesame oil 1 teaspoon fish sauce Squeeze of orange Heat water 2 min, add remaining ingredients, whisk to slow boil, simmer on low 10 min, whisk frequently, will thicken as it cools.

Horace Monroe Wood, 45, was released on probation Monday for a second time after a Bay County judge ruled he had not violated his probation. However, sheriff’s deputies took Wood back into custody hours later and since have charged him with sexual battery. Wood is being held without bond in the Bay County Jail. The latest sexual battery charge stems from an incident in which Wood allegedly engaged in an unlawful sexual act with a person younger than 16, according to Bay County sheriff’s officials. Other details on the charge were not made public Tuesday. Circuit Judge James Fensom, who released Wood on Monday after a violation of probation hearing, ordered Wood to be held without bond. Wood previously had been released the day he was supposed to go to trial at the end of October, although he was accused of sexual battery by four underage victims. He pleaded no contest to one count of lewd and lascivious molestation. Following Wood’s release, Sheriff Frank McKeithen criticized the handling of the case, stating that Wood had “not been held accountable.” Wood later complained that deputies excessively monitored his activities after his release. According to the prosecution’s notes on the case, the sexual batteries occurred as far back as 2006 on girls as young as 3. Because of the time lapse since the incidents and the ages of the alleged victims, several of their accounts conflicted with one another when they were pressed on details that were to be used at Wood’s trial, according to the prosecutor Matt Pavese. Attorneys reached a deal, and Wood was sentenced to three years’ probation. He also was designated a sex offender. Eight days later, probation officers caught Wood without his court-required electronic monitoring device and apprehended him outside a Youngstown motel. Fensom ruled the almost two hours Wood spent without the monitoring device was not a “substantial violation” of his probation. But Wood was arrested a few hours later for the 1995 incident, BCSO said. He made his first court appearance Tuesday. His arraignment is scheduled for Feb. 10. Released sex offender arrested again HORACE WOOD By BEN KLEINE 522-5114 | @BenKleinepcnh bkleine@pcnh.com PANAMA CITY — Commissioner Mike Nichols suggested the city conduct its own collection process for liens. “We’re asking questions,” Nichols said Tuesday at the Panama City Commission meeting. “What are we doing as a city?” The idea was raised during presentations from Municipal Capital Recovery and Credit Business Services, who want to take over collections of about 290 liens dating back to 2006. Panama City-based Credit Business Services offered a 70/30 split, favorable to the city. MCR offered a sliding scale of upfront money, from $25,000 to $80,000. However, the city could not collect after $50,000, $120,000 and $160,000, respectively, is collected by MCR, and the highest upfront cash comes with an 80/20 split in favor of the collection agency. “You don’t have the time or the resources,” CB Services representative Tommy Cooley said. “It’s crazy, but not everybody pays when they say they will.” City Manager Jeff Brown said he was unaware of any attempts by city code enforcement to contact lien holders. Nichols said it might be possible for the city to start with letters or calls with existing personnel in code enforcement and the accounting department. “When I hear low-hanging fruit,” Nichols said, “I think, ‘God, are we missing the boat?’ ” He was referring to claims by both agencies that they will be able to easily identify liens that will be easy to collect. Cooley said his company most often deals with individual cases that are more difficult. Panama City would be MCR’s first municipal customer; all the others are homeowners associations and condominiums. CB Services is the city’s collector for delinquent utility bills. The commission decided to table a decision P.C. considers its own lien collections MIKE NICHOLS By BEN KLEINE 522-5114 | @BenKleinepcnh bkleine@pcnh.com LYNN HAVEN — The Lynn Haven City Commission presented its vision for Porter Park on Tuesday. “We want this to be one of, if not the best, waterfront park in the county,” City Manager Joel Schubert said. Improvements to the park will include rebuilt sea walls, boat ramps, pavilions, benches and enough new parking spaces to keep people from driving up on residents’ yards on their way to the park. Traffic and parking were the main complaints from residents. Schubert believes traffic will be smoother because of the extra parking spaces. The commission approved $79,500 in engineering costs for the first part of the plan. Bay County has contributed $95,000 for the park, which will pay for the engineering. Porter Park also has advanced in the running for $500,000 worth of RESTORE funding. It was one of only two projects that received 9 out of 9 votes from a committee that is narrowing down the applications for funding. “I’m thankful that the county recognizes the impact of the park beyond Lynn Haven,” Commissioner Rodney Friend said. “It’s already a highly utilized area. You should see it at the beginning of snapper season.” Schubert showed a diagram of an improved park, but added that any proposal likely will change with the engineering. “This will come back in bits and pieces,” he said. In other action, Schubert presented a plan to sell city properties to spur economic development. The commission approved two of the more valuable parcels to be sold: a commercial lot along State 77 and a residential property at the corner of Tennessee Avenue and Fourth Street. “There is no reason the city needs to have 77 street frontage,” Schubert said. Friend said the commercial property, with its proximity to a recently vacated liquor store, is especially valuable if both properties were considered together. “That will be a prime location,” he said. Schubert plans to consider various options for 10 other city-owned properties later this year. Lynn Haven wants Porter Park to be best in county SEE COMMISSION | B8 By ZACK McDONALD 747-5071 | @PCNHzack zmcdonald@pcnh.com PANAMA CITY BEACH — Bay County commissioners now have an idea of how far about $50,000 will go toward rebuilding the county’s deteriorating skateboard park. However, the plans still are only in their conceptual stages as budget discussions continue through September. Jamie Jones, the county’s general services director, presented commissioners with a pamphlet of conceptual designs at a recent meeting. The designs outlined a price tag to repair the splintered and deteriorating ramps at the Pete Edwards Skateboard Park at 7300 McElvey Road. Early in December, parks and recreation crews began to remove portions of the ramps deemed to be safety concerns. It would cost $49,554 to acquire pre-cast concrete ramps to mimic the park’s previous design, Jones said. But repairs or replacements are iffy because no money has County looks at rebuilding deteriorating skateboard park Funding the fun Photos by PATTI BLAKE | The News Herald Billy Hayes does a 5-0 grind Tuesday at the Pete Edwards Skateboard Park in Panama City Beach.

From staff reports CALLAWAY Woman charged with shooting at husband A woman was arrested Tuesday after she allegedly shot at her husband during a domestic dispute, according to the Bay County Sheriff’s Office. Julie Forren, 52, was charged with aggravated assault shortly after she was found in a home at 7618 Old Bicycle Road, a BCSO press release said. Deputies responded at 8:32 a.m. after a 911 call from the victim. The man stated he and his wife began to argue Monday and he left the home that night, the release said. When he returned Tuesday morning to get his things, they began to argue again and his wife shot at him with a handgun, according to the release. The man was not injured. Forren was booked into the Bay County Jail. PANAMA CITY Kitchen fire damages home Fire crews have determined that a fire Tuesday that left a home on Lawton Court with smoke and heat damage was accidental, according to the Panama City Fire Department. No injuries were reported. The fire, which was reported about 11 a.m., was located in the kitchen of the one-story, wood frame home at 3019 Lawton Court, according to a press release from PCFD.

TALLAHASSEE (AP) — A new leader was named to Florida’s main law enforce ment agency on Tuesday — but questions remain about why Gov. Rick Scott abruptly shook up the agency. Scott and the Florida Cabinet voted to appoint Richard Swearingen as the new commissioner for the Florida Department of Law Enforcement. Swearingen is a longtime veteran of the agency. Former Commissioner Gerald Bailey was forced by the Scott administration to resign in December and Swearingen was named interim commissioner the same day. Scott was asked several times on Tuesday why Bai ley was forced to resign. But the governor would not answer, simply saying Bailey had done a “great job.” It was only hours later that Scott’s office, respond ing to reports that other state officials said they were unaware Bailey was asked to resign, acknowledged that the long-time commissioner had been forced out. “Like in business, Gover nor Scott thinks it’s impor tant to frequently get new people into government positions of leadership,” said spokeswoman Jackie Schutz. Bailey has been highly regarded in law enforcement and was first appointed to his position in 2006 by Gov. Jeb Bush and the Florida Cabinet. He was kept in the position by Gov. Charlie Crist in 2007 and Scott in 2011. While the commissioner reports to the governor and Cabinet, the three Cabinet members — Agriculture Commissioner Adam Put nam, Chief Financial Officer Jeff Atwater and Attorney General Pam Bondi — said they didn’t know why Bailey resigned. Atwater and Bondi also said they were unaware of the decision until Bai ley had already resigned. Bondi even praised Bailey for “restoring integrity” to the office. Bailey was cho sen to lead the department after Commissioner Guy Tunnell resigned days after he compared the Rev. Jesse Jackson to outlaw Jesse James and U.S. Sen. Barack Obama to Osama Bin Laden at an agency meeting. “My office was told Commissioner Bailey was resigning and was never told anything other than that,” Bondi said. The agency, which is involved in a wide array of duties from processing evidence at crime scenes to guarding the governor, has about 1,700 employees. Currently the department is handing the investigation into dozens of non-natural deaths at Florida’s prisons. Swearingen has more than 30 years of experience at FDLE, most recently serving as the director of Capitol Police. He also over saw security of the governor and his family. He began his career at the department as a crime information input techni cian and received a series of promotions, including special agent supervisor in the Office of Statewide Intelligence.

been allocated for the project. In the meantime, the remaining wooden ramps will be phased out as county budget talks ra mp up in February and March. “If the commission decided to make the funds available, naturally we could then begin discussing what could go back in there,” Jones said. “This concept was to give them an idea of what this project would cost.” The park on McElvy Road was built for less than $80,000 in 2008, with the wooden ramps making up the bulk of the cost. Much of the structural integ rity of the large centerpiece ramp declined to a point where it had become a liability risk, Jones said. The conceptual designs detail only about six obstacles for the almost $50,000 price tag, but the pre-cast con crete ramps would not be as vulnera ble to the elements. The county likely would be more favorable toward concrete ramps because mainte nance costs would be less, Jones said. State agencies and many compa nies such as the Tony Hawk Foun dation offer grants to build skate parks. However, most of the grants go to low-income areas with a high population of at-risk youth, which could exclude Pete Edwards Skate board Park. “In the next few months, if the commission requests, grant options will be reported back to them,” Jones said. “Unfortunately, some of those grants take years to be released.” I S Y OUR G RANITE P ROTECTED ? 850.2 77.0135 kitchentu neup .com Each franc hise is in dependently owned & opera ted. 1 Day Tu ne-U p Ca bine t Refaci ng & Re dooring Ne w Cabin ets Te rry & Holly Grammer Local Owners Gr an it e co u n te rto ps ar e an in ves tm en t tha t re qui re ca re.

S TATE Brief T he A ssociated Press LAKELA ND Citrus greening taking toll on harvest The forecast for Florida’s citrus season is looking worse as the harvest continues. The Ledger of Lakeland reported the U.S. Department of Agriculture dropped the state’s projected orange harvest by 5 million boxes to 103 million boxes, a 5 percent decline from its October estimate. In addition to pre-harvest drop and small fruit size, Florida’s citrus greeninginfected trees are producing fewer pieces of fruit. If those numbers hold, Florida growers will produce less than half the crops of all citrus varieties they produced before 2005, when scientists confirmed the bacterial disease citrus greening had arrived in the state. Florida Commissioner of Agriculture Adam Putnam on Monday said he is asking the Legislature to double its support for greening-related research in the upcoming state budget.

DIVERSIONS A ces On BRIDGE: B obby W olff Bridesmaid’s mom would like to crash the bash DEAR AMY: Is it ever OK to attend a wedding ceremony if you’re not invited? My daughter is a bridesmaid in the wedding of her best friend — both are now independent and live in distant places but the wedding will be in their hometown in the local church. I have known this girl forever and we have always had a lovely “friend’s mom” relationship. The wedding celebration will be small and I’m not in the least put out by not being included on the guest list. I’m friendly with her parents (invited to graduations, discussed various issues, etc.) but we’re not friends in a social way. However, I would love to go to the wedding itself. Is there any acceptable way to do this, or ask to do this? WEDDING CRASHER DEAR CRASHER: Some churches host open weddings where church members are automatically invited to witness the ceremony. I gather that this is not one of these churches, or you are not a member of the congregation. Even though you are known by the family and your daughter is a bridesmaid, they have declined to include you in the small guest list. So no — unless you get Owen Wilson and Vince Vaughn to front for you, it would not be appropriate for you to crash this wedding. Enjoy the photographs. DEAR AMY: I work in banking. My boss is married and has three young kids. Approximately two years ago, he met a woman in the office whom he completely fell for. They made their mutual attraction absolutely obvious to everyone. She worked in another department. When an opening for a position in my business unit became available, my boss hired her. She has 0.00 qualifications for the position, and many internal candidates were overlooked, causing some friction. Since her hire, she has dominated much of the boss’ time, and their comings and goings have become a conversation piece, internally and externally. An extraordinary amount of time has been dedicated to her success, but in all candor she does not appear to have the skill set for her job. He is now quietly filing for divorce and, despite the seemingly obvious nature of their relationship, no one has raised the issue with senior management, nor has senior management been engaged enough to realize the situation. Integrity is a cornerstone of banking, and honesty is essential to the business. Senior management appears to be engaged in willful blindness because our unit is performing well despite this morale issue. I am frustrated and tempted to send an anonymous note to HR and to my boss’ superiors, but I feel ultimately it would only backfire on me. Do I need to leave? What should I do? OVERDRAWN DEAR OVERDRAWN: I assume it is violation of your workplace ethics policy for a manager to hire a person with whom he/she is romantically involved, to work in the same department. And even if your boss could somewhat accurately claim that there was no romance at the time of the hiring, there is a romance now — and many companies also have a policy against couples working in the same department if they are boss/ staff person. There are a multitude of extremely good reasons for this statute, and if this is your company’s policy you should trust your company to adhere to it. In your case, the staff person is not competent, which gives all the more reason for you to report it. You should do so assuming that members of senior management are unaware of this and are also unaware of the impact on the department. You should also assume that they would rather deal with this quietly before there is a business-related problem, such as a lawsuit or an ethics issue reported by a client or customer. Report this in a neutral way — anonymously if you wish — and also quietly begin a job search of your own.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21): Before you let yourself fall for the thing that is out of reach, be sure it’s worth falling for. Make sure that “unobtainable” isn’t the most appealing thing about it. CANCER (June 22-July 22): Hold on, because today’s atmosphere may turn wild, hectic and unsupportive. It’s why you need to give yourself a good breakfast and leave plenty of time for getting from place to place. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): No one can be exactly like you, though a few will try! Take it as a compliment. You’re the big sibling now, and the others are learning from the way you manage things.

The only legitimate way to eliminate the competition is to do it better, faster or cheaper. Maybe all three! LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23): Today features high stakes and intense competition. Keep in mind that an obliging attitude will gain you more respect than any fine trapping you could drive around in or throw on your back.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Happiness is simple today. You put your whole self into mundane tasks like paying bills or making dinner. Consequently, your good fortune will continue. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Without an injection of fantasy, things could get very dull indeed. Today is for imagining something different for your life. Draw it or write about it to flesh out the delightful details. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): The social basics will apply: no whispering or telling secrets about others. If everyone would keep these rules, the world would be a much happier place. THAT SCRAMBLED WORD GAME by David L. Hoyt and Jeff Knurek History TODAY Today is Wednesday, Jan. 14, the 14th day of 2015. There are 351 days left in the year. Today’s highlight in history On Jan. 14, 1784, the United States ratified the Treaty of Paris ending the Revolutionary War; Britain followed suit in April 1784. On this date 1814 — The Treaty of Kiel ended hostilities between Denmark and Sweden, with Denmark agreeing to cede Norway to Sweden, something Norway refused to accept. 1914 — Ford Motor Co. greatly improved its assembly-line operation by employing an endless chain to pull each chassis along at its Highland Park plant. 1943 — President Franklin D. Roosevelt, British Prime Minister Winston Churchill and French General Charles de Gaulle opened a wartime conference in Casablanca. 1952 — NBC’s “Today” show premiered, with Dave Garroway as the host, or “communicator.” 1954 — Marilyn Monroe and Joe DiMaggio were married at San Francisco City Hall. 1963 — George C. Wallace was sworn in as governor of Alabama with the pledge, “Segregation forever!” — a view Wallace later repudiated. 1969 — 27 people aboard the aircraft carrier USS Enterprise, off Hawaii, were killed when a rocket warhead exploded, setting off a fire and additional explosions. 1994 — President Bill Clinton and Russian President Boris Yeltsin signed an accord to stop aiming missiles at any nation; the leaders joined Ukrainian President Leonid Kravchuk in signing an accord to dismantle the nuclear arsenal of Ukraine.

The Oscar-winning filmmaker will write and direct all of the episodes of the half-hour series. A full season has been ordered for Amazon’s Prime Instant Video, the company announced Tuesday. The series is expected to premiere in 2016. No details on casting were disclosed, nor was the series title announced. Amazon Studios vice president Roy Price called Allen “a visionary creator who has made some of the greatest films of all time,” keeping him “at the creative forefront of American cinema” during a career that spans 50 years. “I don’t know how I got into this,” the 79-year-old Allen said in a wryly modest statement. “I have no ideas and I’m not sure where to begin. My guess is that Roy Price will regret this.” Allen has masterminded and often starred in more than 40 films since his maiden directorial effort, “What’s Up Tiger Lily?” in 1966. His latest movie project is “Magic in the Moonlight,” released last year, with yet another film in the pipeline for this year. The late 1970s saw two of his most celebrated films, “Annie Hall” and “Manhattan.” He has won four Oscars and two Golden Globes. Last year he was presented with the Golden Globes’ Cecil B. DeMille Lifetime Achievement Award. But his skills were honed on television, where he first gained widespread notice in the early 1960s as a standup comic, and during the 1950s, when he wrote for Sid Caesar and other TV stars. His prodigious output through the decades has also included magazine essays, books and plays. A musical adaptation of his 1994 film comedy, “Bullets Over Broadway,” ran on Broadway last year. Allen’s signing adds yet more luster to Amazon Studios. Its freshman series, “Transparent,” on Sunday won two Golden Globes, including best comedy series, as it continues to help redefine what “television” means. Amazon started Amazon studios in 2010 to develop fulllength films and TV shows. Morningstar analyst R.J. Hottovy estimates Amazon spent almost $2 billion on streaming license rights and original content in 2014, of which Amazon Studios would amount to about $400 million. Amazon’s goal is not only to develop successful TV shows but also to grow its $99 annual Prime loyalty program membership by bolstering the Prime Instant Video component of the loyalty program. Amazon taps Woody Allen for TV series WOO DY A LLEN LOS ANGELES (AP) — “Transformers” is rolling out with the most nominations at this year’s Golden Raspberry Awards. The action sequel starring Mark Wahlberg alongside the morphing robots led the Razzie lineup Tuesday with seven nominations, including worst picture, worst sequel, worst screenplay and worst screen combo. “Transformers: Age of Extinction” is also up for worst director for Michael Bay, worst supporting actress for Nicola Peltz and worst supporting actor for Kelsey Grammer, who was also recognized for his supporting roles in “The Expendables 3,” “Legends of Oz” and “Think Like a Man Too.” This year’s other worst picture nominees are “Kirk Cameron’s Saving Christmas,” “Left Behind,” “The Legend of Hercules” and “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.” The faith-based comedy “Saving Christmas” and the Kellan Lutz action flick “Legend of Hercules” each follow “Transformers” with six nominations in such categories as worst director, worst screen combo and worst actor for Cameron and Lutz. ‘Transformers’ sequel leads Razzies nominations

Sports PANAMA CITY NEWS HERALD Section C Facebook: tinyurl.com/NHSports Twitter: @NH_Sports www.newsherald.com/sports DALLAS (AP) — Here’s the scary part for the rest of major-college football: Some of Ohio State’s best players didn’t play in Mon day night’s championship game, and many of those who did are coming back. “We’ll be very good,” Buckeyes coach Urban Meyer said in the under statement of the season. Asked about repeating, he smiled and said, “Tough questions, man. We just won a championship!” Sure, but it’s hard to hide the fact that the Buck eyes are loaded. Half of their starters in the cham pionship game were fresh men or sophomores. The quarterback who led the Buckeyes to a 3-0 postseason mark, including the 42-20 victory over Oregon, said on Tuesday that he’s not ready for the NFL and will be coming back. “To me, right now, it’s far out,” Cardale Jones said. As far as staying in the fold, the same goes for the two injured stars who used to be in front of him: the graduated Braxton Miller (shoulder surgery) and spectacular sophomoreto-be J.T. Barrett (broken ankle). A four-word caveat should be added for all three players’ commitment statements: “at least for now.” So those headlines about a three-way quarterback competition don’t look like they’re going away imme diately. And that could be a distraction, pos sibly a disruption. We’ll see. Another major consider ation is finding replacements for some not incon sequential per sonnel: Meyer’s choice for team MVP, receiver Evan Spen cer; tight end Jeff Heuer man on offense; linemen Michael Bennett and Steve Miller; linebacker Curtis Grant and shut-down cor ner Doran Grant. But in each situation, it appears there are qual ity players waiting in the The News Herald PANAMA CITY — Gulf Coast State will return home today for its third foray into Panhandle Conference action, with the men facing their biggest test thus far and the women are trying to avoid an 0-3 start. The Gulf Coast men will take on a North west Florida State squad that comes in No. 2 in the nation and No. 1 in the state, car rying an 18-0 record and a 2-0 mark in the Panhandle Conference. The Raiders won 85-78 at Tallahassee in their conference opener and followed with an 86-83 home win over Pensacola on Saturday. Northwest Florida State is one of the top offensive teams in the country, averag ing 92.3 points per game and shooting 55 percent from the field, 39 percent from the 3-point line. Sophomore Jalen Jackson leads the team in scoring with 18.2 points per game, followed by Oregon transfer Brandon Aus tin (15.9), sophomore Benji Bell (14.4) and sophomore Jordan Capps (10.1).

Peffers scored twice in the second half after Champagne gave Arnold a halftime lead, and the Mar lins defeated Bay 3-0 in the District 2-3A girls soccer semifinals Tuesday night at the Mike Gavlak Sports Complex. Arnold improved to 8-4-1 overall and will square off with Mosley in the district championship game Friday at 7 p.m. The Marlins also secured a bid to regionals, and the out come against Mosley will determine whether the Marlins host a regional quarterfinal contest or go on the road. Bay’s season came to an end with a 4-8-3 record. Arnold didn’t always look sharp against the Tornadoes, but clearly was the better team on the field. The Marlins, despite an inability to control the ball for long stretches, were able to push num bers forward and generate opportunities. “I always tell everyone that Bay has strong players and a good coach,” Arnold coach James Gardner said. “We have to play our very best to beat them.” Champagne scored in the 26th minute to give Arnold a 1-0 lead. Cham pagne’s first shot was turned back by Bay goal keeper Tabatha Kitchen, but the ball deflected back to Champagne, who found a largely empty net await ing her follow-up shot. Peffers outmuscled a Bay defender for the ball in front of the Tornadoes’ goal and coerced a shot into the back of the net for a twogoal advantage in the 52nd minute. She tacked on her second goal in the 70th minute with a left-footed blast from 15 yards. “We’re trying to prove to everyone in the county that we are competitive with anyone,” Peffers said.

Hale, 27, the only head coach in the brief four-year his tory of the football program at North Bay Haven said he was informed on Friday that he would not be retained in that capacity for the 2015 season. He currently will continue as the boys weightlifting coach and remain at the school as a teacher. Hale was unsure Tuesday about his future in coaching or teaching at North Bay Haven beyond this school year. “I’m still going to teach there, hope fully send more guys to state in weight lifting,” Hale said. “We sent three last year.” North Bay Haven Athletic Director Debbie Funk houser stressed that the school prefers that Hale stay on as a teacher and coach, and possibly continue to contrib ute to the football program. Hale took over the Bucs’ fledging program when it began as a junior varsity in 2011 while the school’s first graduating class was in its sophomore year. The Bucs remained a JV in 2012, then began a varsity schedule in 2013 when the school produced its first senior class. North Bay Haven was 2-7 in both years of varsity foot ball under Hale. “We love Jared. I want to go on record that he is a won derful young man,” Funkhouser said. “The administration wants him to stay if he wants to stay at North Bay Haven as a teacher and weightlifting coach.

Page C2 | The News Herald | Wednesday, January 14, 2015 AUTO RACING NASCAR driver accused of abuse says ex is trained assassin DOVER, Del. (AP) — The NAS CAR driver known as “The Out law” testified Tuesday he believes his ex-girlfriend is a trained assassin dispatched on covert missions around the world who once returned to him in a bloodsplattered gown. “Everybody on the outside can tell me I’m crazy, but I lived on the inside and saw it firsthand,” Kurt Busch said when his attorney, Rusty Hardin, questioned why he still believed Patricia Driscoll is a hired killer. Busch, appearing in court again over Driscoll’s request for a no-contact order, continued the push of his legal team to discredit his ex as a scorned woman out to destroy his career, portray ing her as a character fit for a screenplay. Busch said Driscoll repeatedly asserted her assassin status and claimed the work took her on mis sions across Central and South America and Africa. He recounted one time when the couple was in El Paso, Texas. He said Driscoll left in camouflage gear only to return later wearing a trench coat over an evening gown covered with blood. A day earlier, Busch’s said his ex-girlfriend told him she was a mercenary who killed people for a living and had shown him pictures of bodies with gunshot wounds. Busch said Tuesday that Driscoll had claimed that a female character in “Zero Dark Thirty,” a film depicting the CIA’s hunt for Osama bin Laden, was a compos ite of her and other women. Last month, Michael Doncheff, who served as a personal assis tant to Busch and Driscoll, said an ailing Driscoll told him in Sep tember that she had been picked up by a big man and slammed to the ground while helping round up immigrants at the Mexican bor der, a story Doncheff considered “far-fetched.” Doncheff said Driscoll also asserted that she was a trained assassin for the U.S. govern ment and once told him, “I take down foreign governments. I own Washington.” During the hearing, which stretched over four days, neither Driscoll nor her attorney refuted the testimony. Driscoll was not immediately available for comment after the hearing Tuesday and did not immediately respond to voicemail messages.

Cole is leading the Commodores in scoring this season at 13.3 points per game, followed by Waters (11.4), Wade (10.4) and Davaris McGowens (9.6). The No. 13 Lady Commodores (13-4, 0-2) are in dire need of a victory after league losses to Chipola 75-67 and TCC 82-63, while Northwest Florida State (16-1, 1-1) is looking to keep pace with the Panhandle’s two unbeaten teams, Chipola and TCC. The Lady Raiders lost 64-59 to the Lady Eagles in their conference debut, but bounced back Saturday with an 85-54 win over Pensacola State. Northwest Florida is led by freshman Daniela Wallen with 16.1 points per game, followed by Simone Westbrook (13.3), Acey Powell (11.3) and Tia Sanders (11.1). Sophomore forward Chelsey Gibson is leading the Lady Commodores in scoring at 18.1 points per game, with Kristina King next at 16.6 and Tianah Alvarado at 14.5. COMMODORES from page C1 “He has a great offensive mind, no doubt about it. If the new (football) coach wants him to stay we’d have no prob lem with that. He told me that at this time it might not be fair to the new coach if he stays on staff. But we would like that. Jared is much loved by his players and his colleagues.” Hale said that he was told the school wanted a coach with more experience. He wasn’t certain whether his 4-14 won-loss record factored into the decision to replace him. “Honestly I’m not even sure,” he said. “I hope it didn’t because we played a lot of good teams. Half of our schedule was teams that were in the playoffs.” Funkhouser said that the NBH administration met as a team, and the decision did not come at the conclusion of the season because it was not based on the football team’s record. She said that Principal Meredith Higgins informed Hale that he was being replaced late last week. “There are so many facets for coaching at the varsity level, and Jared has never had experience coaching at the varsity level,” Funkhouser said. “Jared hasn’t had time to gain that experience.” Hale said he was surprised when told he wouldn’t be retained, and thought the program was building for the future with six combined sophomores and freshmen start ing this season. “It’s tough. I told the guys today and that’s one of the hardest things I ever had to do,” Hale said. “They’re upset, but I enjoyed being there and working with the kids. Making them better football players and people overall.” He said that he’s been in contact with his father, James, a veteran head coach who started Arnold’s football program and helped out this season as a Bucs’ assistant. The younger Hale said that he’d like to continue coach ing football, but future decisions also will be impacted by what is best for his family, which includes a wife and child. “I love being around football,” Hale said. “It’s my passion.” Funkhouser said that the position will be advertised in the coming days on the school’s website. “We’re seeking a head coach with experience at the varsity level who can be proactive in fundraising as well as coaching the team,” she said. “We’re looking for that experi ence and leadership.” Funkhouser said the next head coach will not be pro moted from within. “We have no one within the school; it was difficult to find assistant coaches within the school,” she said. “We are open to anyone within the county or outside the county.” Funkhouser said that North Bay Haven would like to introduce a new head football coach in the next month. Hale will continue to teach government and coach boys weightlifting at North Bay Haven, and teach some physical education classes at Bay Haven Middle School. HALE from page C1 The No. 13 Lady Commodores (13-4, 0-2) are in dire need of a victory after league losses to Chipola 75-67 and TCC 82-63. ENCORE from page C1 wings. Three of the top recruits — wide receiver Johnnie Dixon, reputedly the fastest player on the roster, linebacker Kyler Berger and cornerback Marshon Lattimore — were injured and red shirted. If healthy, they’ll jump right back into the battle for spots on the two-deep. One other notable absence is one of the architects of Ohio State’s offense, coordinator and quarterbacks coach Tom Herman. He took the Houston job last month, and will be replaced by Nebraska coordinator Tim Beck. Herman was invalu able, but it’s Meyer’s sys tem. The Buckeyes added a defensive coordinator, Chris Ash, a year ago and that turned out fine, with the defense revamped by Ash continually coming up big down the stretch. That’s about it, how ever, for changes, losses and possible problem areas. Championship-game MVP Ezekiel Elliott, leading receiver Michael Thomas and everybody else on both lines, at line backer and in the second ary, is returning. “I wonder what they’ll question now,” Thomas said in the celebratory locker room. “It’s a bless ing to be in this situation, this position. I felt we deserve it 100 percent. And we’ll be back next year.” ANDRE W WA RDLO W | The News Herald Mosley’s Taylor Hallmon (13) makes an acrobatic move to the ball. MOSLEY from page C1 said his team, which features several athletes who play soccer throughout the year, is not overlooking any of its opponents this week. “Most of the girls have played soc cer long enough to know that in soccer anything is possible,” Betkowski said. “There is no such thing as a given outcome. We just try hard and play our best.” Gracie Mullins, Stevie-Marie Mul lins, Kristi Jones and Alyssa Forker each tallied one goal in the first half as the Dolphins quickly ended any doubt about the eventual outcome. Taylor Hallmon, Elizabeth Vickers and Gabby Krajniak scored a goal apiece in the second half. In truth, the only thing to prevent Mosley from registering a victory via the eight-goal mercy rule was Betkowski’s decision to insert more than a half-dozen substitutes midway through the first half. “Nothing can replace game experi ence,” Betkowski said. “Every game, if we can put players in, it’s a big oppor tunity. In practice, the girls always know it’s practice.” The Dolphins now have registered 89 goals as a team this season, led by Vickers’ 25. Gracie Mullins’ goal against Rutherford (4-15-1) broke a scoreless tie in the game’s opening minutes and was her first goal of the season. “Scoring goals is not always an indicator of talent, but it definitely is good news that we have more than one or two players who can score,” Betkowski said. With their berth to regionals now assured, the Dolphins can clinch a home game in the quarterfinals if they can defeat Arnold for a third time on Friday. “I expect Arnold to do everything they can to stop us,” Betkowski said. “I know they will play their hearts out and make things difficult like they always do.” Mosley outscored the Marlins by a combined score of 15-3 in two victories earlier this season. “We have to go as hard as we can and forget about the last two games,” Peffers said. Added Gardner: “We can’t make any mistakes against Mosley. They’re solid at every position.” Boys basketball Bay 69, Gulf Breeze 32 PA N AMA CITY — Bay put four players in double figures as the Torna does defeated Gulf Breeze in District 1-5A. The Tornadoes, 12-5, 5-2, were paced by Rayshawn Patterson with 14 points. Marcus Jones, Robert Monroe and Cody Johnson all scored 11 points. Deondre Murphy added 10 rebounds and four blocked shots.

Justin Anderson added 15 points for the Cavaliers (16-0, 4-0 Atlantic Coast Conference), who won their 20th consecutive game at John Paul Jones Arena. The win, with former Virginia great and three-time national player of the year Ralph Sampson in attendance, gave Virginia it first 4-0 start in conference play since the 1994-95 season.

The 10th has Kiowa Jordan Doc in fine form starting from the 8 hole and Penrose Lobo had 26 quinielas in 45 starts coming into the new year. Cheap Thrill always deserves attention, and starts from the 4 hole. The eighth race of the evening card has LK’s MC Clintock on a roll and Penrose Kyle sure to be among the favorites. Vegas Christy and CG’s Jerry start from the inside in the 10th and should give Husker Magic, 5 hole, a challenge. At Sarasota, D Ark Ax has won three straight including his debut in Grade A, but Tony Roman also is in solid form entering his first A start and Ebro veteran Jacob Radosevich is dangerous in the stretch. LSU grabs Alabama assistant Steele BATON ROUGE, La. — LSU coach Les Miles has hired Alabama linebackers coach Kevin Steele as the Tigers’ defensive coordinator. Steel, whose hiring was announced Tuesday evening, has received national honors for recruiting. He has spent the past two seasons under Nick Saban, working this season as the Crimson Tide’s linebackers coach and as special assistant to the head coach. Steele fills a vacancy left by John Chavis, who left after this season to become Texas A&M’s defensive coordinator. Steele was Baylor’s head coach from 1999 to 2002 and defensive coordinator at Clemson from 2009 to 2011. Steele also served as an NFL assistant with Carolina and worked under Bobby Bowden at Florida State before his first stint with Saban at Alabama during 2007 and 2008. Braves, Rodriguez agree to deal ATLANTA — Left-hander Wandy Rodriguez and the Atlanta Braves have agreed to a minor league contract. Rodriguez, who turns 36 Sunday, will attend big league spring training and compete for the fifth spot in the rotation. If he is added to the 40-man roster, he would get a one-year contract for $2 million. Rodriguez was 0-2 with a 6.75 ERA last year in six starts with Pittsburgh, which released him on May 30. Rodriquez appeared in only 12 games in 2013 due to a left forearm injury. Sources: D-Backs, Cuban pitcher Yoan Lopez agree to deal PHOENIX — The Arizona Diamondbacks have agreed to a contract with Cuban pitcher Yoan Lopez that includes an $8.27 million signing bonus, two people with knowledge of the deal said Tuesday. A hard-throwing 21-year-old right-hander, Lopez is expected to begin his Diamondbacks career in the minor leagues. The people spoke on condition of anonymity because the deal hasn’t been announced.

Wednesday, January 14, 2015 | The News Herald | Page C5 FOOTBALL Page C2 | Daily News | Wednesday, January 14, 2015 Sports The Associated Press There are the 2007 Patri ots, a juggernaut, and the 2014 not-so-dominant ver sion. There are the current Seahawks, not quite as fear some as last year’s champi onship edition. Throw in a Packers team that doesn’t much resemble the Lombardi squads, and a group of Colts who have experienced more ups and downs this season than the rest of this Final Four. Yes, it’s been a long and winding road to the confer ence title games for New England, Seattle, Green Bay and Indianapolis. “It’s been quite gratify ing because of the challenge of answering the Super Bowl accomplishment,” said Seahawks coach Pete Carroll, whose Seahawks were 3-3 and fighting off the championship hangover in October. They’ve won 10 of 11 since, and their defense became immovable once AllPro inside linebacker Bobby Wagner returned from a right foot injury. “When I went into this year with the thought that this is a very unique chance at showing that you can handle all of that — it’s been difficult for people and the history of it shows you that it’s hard to come back and get yourself back into this kind of position again. So this is exactly where we’d hoped we would be right now. So that’s something that we’ve accomplished; it’s reward ing to this point.” It should be. Until the Seahawks beat Carolina last Saturday, the last defending Super Bowl to win its next postseason game was New England — nine years ago. Just as much in the dol drums back in early autumn as the Seahawks: Tom Brady and the Patriots. They were 2-2, coming off an ugly loss at Kansas City in prime time. The three-time Super Bowl winner had little cohe sion with a mediocre group of wideouts other than Julian Edelman. Star tight end Rob Gronkowski was slowly coming back from injuries that basically wiped out his previous season. Questions abounded concerning the running game, the offensive line, and a defense that had been torched in two of the first four games. In the next 12 weeks, the Patriots won 10 times. Between Oct. 5 and Nov. 23, they never scored fewer than 27 points and averaged more than 39 points in a sevengame winning streak. Think New England straightened things out? “It’s hard to be oblivious to things,” Brady said of commentaries that the Patri ots were no longer elite. “We all have TVs or the Internet, or the questions I get and the emails that I get from people that are concerned. Nobody died or anything. It’s just a loss and I think we’ve always done a great job putting losses behind us quickly.” Coach Bill Belichick sees no magical formula for getting on the straight and narrow. “I think at this point really it’s just about every body doing their job,” he said. “I don’t think it really matters how many games you’ve played or how long you’ve been here.” Steelers name Butler defensive coordinator PITTSBURGH — The Pittsburgh Steelers didn’t look far for Dick LeBeau’s replacement. The team promoted longtime linebackers coach Keith Butler to defensive coordinator on Tuesday. Butler will take over for LeBeau. The Hall of Famer resigned on Saturday after the team finished 18th in total defense, the lowest in his second stint with the Steelers. Butler has spent the last 12 years with Pittsburgh and has a long history with Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin. Garrett, Marinelli set to return to Cowboys IRVING, Texas — Dallas coach Jason Garrett has agreed to a fiveyear contract and defensive coordinator Rod Marinelli also is returning on a three-year contract. Garrett led the Cowboys to the playoffs for the first time since 2009. He will make about $6 million annually after just completing a four-year, $20 million contract. The Dallas defense improved significantly after Marinelli was promoted from defensive line coach. Bills shuffle: Roman in, Schwartz out ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. — Greg Roman is in as the Buffalo Bills new offensive coordinator, and Jim Schwartz is out as defensive coordi nator. Both moves were expected, and announced by the Bills on Tues day, a day after Rex Ryan took over as coach. Schwartz’s contract was terminated after one season in Buffalo, allowing him to pursue other jobs. Ryan is a defensive specialist. Roman was hired after spending the past two days negotiating with the Bills. He spent the previous four seasons serving as the San Francisco 49ers offensive coordinator. Jets hire Texans executive Maccagnan as GM NEW YORK — The New York Jets have hired Houston Texans executive Mike Maccagnan as their general manager, replacing the fired John Idzik. Maccagnan was Houston’s director of college scout ing and the only GM candidate who received a second meeting with the Jets. Maccagnan first interviewed with owner Woody Johnson and consultants Charley Casserly and Ron Wolf last Monday before having another meeting Friday and staying in New Jersey over the weekend. The Jets are still searching for a coach to replace Rex Ryan, who was fired along with Idzik on Dec. 29 after a 4-12 season in which the Jets missed the postseason for the fourth straight year. DALLAS (AP) — Oregon’s season was so much more than the final game to quarterback Marcus Mariota. Just because his team ultimately came up short against Ohio State in the national championship, it doesn’t diminish what the Ducks accom plished together as a team, he said. When history judges the 2014 Ore gon Ducks, however, it will likely be remembered as the year of Marcus Mariota. The junior quarterback was the face of the 13-2 team that defeated Florida State in the Rose Bowl in col lege football’s first playoffs, but then fell 42-20 to the Buckeyes. Ohio State ended the season ranked No. 1, Ore gon was No. 2. “Being the champions from the Pac-12, being Rose Bowl champions, that says a lot about what we were able to do this year,” Mariota said. “Proud of the guys. We fought through a lot of stuff and just ended up short, but it shouldn’t take away from what we were able to do this year.” Mariota won every major award he qualified for, starting with the Heis man Trophy, as well as AP Player of the Year and Pac-12 Offensive Player of the Year. He set a conference record for most touchdowns in a single sea son with 58; 42 via pass, 15 on the run and a touchdown catch. He set the conference mark for career touch downs with 134. He threw at least one touchdown pass in all 41 college games he started in his career, the second-longest streak in NCAA history behind Marshall’s Rakeem Cato (46). And he’s one of just four quarterbacks in FBS history to pass for more than 10,000 yards and run for more than 2,000 in his career. By Thursday, he will have to decide if he’s going to forgo his senior year and declare his eligibility for the NFL draft. He left the door slightly open for a return to Eugene following the loss to the Buckeyes. “There’s starting grad school, com ing back for another year to improve, there’s a lot of other things that could bring me back,” he said. But many expect that this was the humble team leader’s last season as a Duck. “I love this guy, and will forever,” coach Mark Helfrich said. “Absolutely couldn’t be luckier to coach him and be around him every day.” ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — The first College Football Playoff was a success on almost every level — except maybe for fans of TCU and Baylor. Otherwise, there was not much to gripe about. And Ohio State walking away with the first championship by beating Oregon 42-20 on Monday night after getting the fourth spot ahead of TCU and Baylor cer tainly helped justify the selection commit tee’s choice. Now that it’s over, let’s look ahead and examine where the College Football Playoff goes from here. HAPPY NEW YEAR If you thought New Year’s Day was just perfect, spending your lazy day off watching football, with a semifinal doubleheader kicking off around 5 p.m. ET, we’ve got some bad news for you. The semifinals next season will be played on New Year’s Eve at the Orange Bowl in Miami and at the Cotton Bowl at AT&T Stadium. “We really do think we’re going to change the paradigm of New Year’s Eve,” College Football Play off executive director Bill Hancock said. The Rose Bowl goes back to being Big Ten vs. Pac-12 and the Sugar Bowl will now have a similar setup with the Southeastern Conference and the Big 12 in a matchup. But those two bowls keep those pre mium time slots, back-to-back on New Year’s Day. THE COMMITTEE The 13-member selection committee, which turned into a 12-member selection committee, needs to find at least one new member. After Oliver Luck resigned as athletic director at West Virginia, the committee needs another representative from the Big 12 conference. Baylor coach Art Briles, who complained about not having enough Texas representation on the panel, might not like it, but don’t be surprised if Kansas State’s John Currie or Oklahoma’s Joe Castiglione ended up taking Luck’s spot. Former Mississippi quarterback Archie Man ning had to withdraw from the committee during the season because of health issues and it’s still very much up in the air if he will be back. Hard to say who would replace Manning. It likely would be someone with ties to SEC country, but the conference commissioners who ultimately choose the committee members might want to look for someone who could lower the average age of the panel. None of the members were below 50. There are a couple of things that will be up for discussion when the committee and commissioners start talking about whether changes need to be made to the rankings process: • Do the committee members need to meet in person every week to do the rankings? • Should the rankings continue to be weekly? If ESPN has a say (and it does) the answer will be yes. • Could the rankings start later in the season? REFORM The playoff is influencing NCAA reform and restructuring because of how much money it is pumping into the top level of college sports — more than $500 million per year just from ESPN televi sion contracts related to big bowl games. Meyer was among the first to call for the NCAA to find a way to pay for players’ families to attend the extra postseason game the Buckeyes and Ducks had in the playoff. In about a month, the NCAA came up with a pilot program to reimburse players’ parents or guardians up to $3,000 for travel expenses. Meyer, speaking at a news conference with quarterback Cardale Jones and safety Tyvis Powell, said he’s grateful the discussion is happening. “It’s not always about corporate America, it’s not always about money, it’s about the guys to my left over here that put on an incredible show.” WHO WILL BE IN? Pencil in Ohio State as preseason No. 1 in the AP poll. TCU has a load of players back, led by star quarterback Trevone Boykin, so figure the Horned Frogs will be second. After that the preseason play off hopefuls look like a lot of usual suspects. • SEC: Auburn, Alabama and Georgia. • Big Ten: Michigan State should push Ohio State again. • Big 12: Baylor. • Pac-12: Stanford, Southern California, Arizona and Arizona State. • ACC: Florida State, Georgia Tech and Clemson. OUR (WAY TOO EARLY) PLAYOFF PICKS: Ohio State, TCU, Georgia and Clemson. The Associated Press Ohio State’s thrashing of Oregon in the title game was more than just an ego boost for the Big Ten. It may have also sig naled an impending renaissance for a league that looked finished four months ago. The Big Ten was the only league in the coun try to beat three ranked teams in bowl games — and that was before Ohio State’s victory over the Ducks. The conference was also the only one with two teams in the top five of the final poll. The Buckeyes were a unanimous No. 1, and Michigan State was tied for fifth after stunning Baylor in the Cotton Bowl. And the recent influx of high-profile coaches like Ohio State’s Urban Meyer and Michigan’s Jim Har baugh could have the Big Ten poised for big things in the years to come. “I do think there’s a lit tle bit of a reset. With the strength of the coaches, that’s a factor,” Big Ten commissioner Jim Delany said. The argument over whether the conference has finally caught up to the SEC, the Big 12 and the Pac-12 will continue all offseason. In September, it wasn’t much of an argument. On one weekend, Virginia Tech stunned the Buck eyes, Oregon throttled the Spartans and Notre Dame embarrassed Michigan. Many experts declared that the conference was out of the running for a playoff spot. What a difference a few months make. Michigan just commit ted roughly $35 million to Jim Harbaugh. Michigan State has won the Big Ten title game, the Rose Bowl and the Cotton in the past 13 months. New coaches at Wisconsin (Paul Chryst) and Nebraska (Mike Riley) could push those peren nial league contenders over the hump, and Jerry Kill has things looking up at Minnesota. Don’t forget Penn State. The sanctions are ending and the Nittany Lions look ready to rebound under James Franklin. In the near future, all those programs will prob ably be chasing the Buck eyes. Ohio State is set to bring back the majority of its starters and could have three proven start ing quarterbacks; Cardale Jones, J.T. Barrett and Braxton Miller.

The News Herald Classified 747-5020 James, I have a drive-ability problem with my 1999 2.5 liter four-cylinder Ford Ranger at highway speeds. It starts well and runs well around town and there is no “check engine light” coming on. The problem is at highway speeds around 60 mph. I have to downshift the manual transmission from overdrive when I come to small hills at highway speeds when I drive from Panama City to Marianna. I have a friend who has the same year model Ranger and his does not have this problem on the highway. He can even accelerate in overdrive and gain speed, it may be slow, but it does gain speed. My truck does not and loses power when I accelerate in overdrive. I have had the fuel pump replaced, and both O2 sensors along with spark plugs and wires and it still lacks power when I accelerate. I thought the exhaust might be clogged, so I loosened the exhaust pipe and drove it to see if there is any difference. The only difference was it was loud and it still lacked power. I bought the truck used and it has 165,000 miles on it. The only other symptom I have is lower fuel mileage compared to my friend’s Ranger by 5 miles to the gallon during highway driving . Any suggestions to what to look for to solve this low power problem I am having? Elmore W, Marianna The first thing that pops in my mind is the timing belt is not installed correctly. A tuck with this many miles normally has had the timing belt replaced at least once. On this engine the cam sensor is not located on the cam shaft like 99 percent of most cars and trucks. It is located on the oil pump drive shaft on this engine. I really don’t know why Ford designed it that way, but they did. The easiest way my shop can tell if that is your problem is to perform a compression wave pattern analysis by using a pressure transducer and a digital lab scope. This will allow me to see what is really happening in the combustion chamber during the 720 degree rotation of the suck, squeeze, bang, blow of a four-cycle engine. This is the easiest way to see what is happening without tearing the front of the engine apart. It will show if there’s a restricted exhaust, or mechanical problem due to weak valve springs, improperly timed engine (due to the timing belt not being installed correctly), low compression etc, etc. If you are handy with your hands, find the written procedure to see where your three timing belt marks are supposed to be. Remove the timing cover and inspect ALL THREE timing gear marks. I suspect you will see the crankshaft gear and the oil pump gear are lined up correctly, but the camshaft gear is off by at least one tooth. This is the reason you have low power and not a check engine light or computer code telling you that you have a problem. This is a tough one to figure out if you have not seen this before, but once you do see this, you never forget.
