Total expenditures for the ambulance service for fiscal 2014, which ended Sept. 30, were $6.96 million, which is $1.81 million away from breaking even. But there is $7.5 million in outstanding debts the county is trying to collect in net accounts receivable. Mark Bowen, chief of emergency services, said considerably more time is needed to collect unpaid debts to see whether the several million-dollar shortfall to cover the ambulance service’s expenses is a reality. The commission wants 18 months from the time the service started to analyze the numbers so the collection effort could be evaluated. Bowen, who met individually with commissioners Wednesday to give them the latest numbers, said the commission might discuss the issue at a meeting in April. “Honestly, I wish (the numbers) were better,” Bowen said. “But I also honestly feel like they haven’t been (in place) long enough to know. I wish they were better the first month we were in business, but it would have been completely unrealistic to think there would have been money coming in. It just hasn’t been long enough. We By ZACK McDONALD 747-5071 | @PCNHzack zmcdonald@pcnh.com PANAMA CITY — A released sex offender was re-arrested after a DNA test revealed he was the father of a child allegedly conceived during a rape, officials with the Bay County Sheriff’s Office confirmed Wednesday. Horace Monroe Wood, 45, was at the edge of conditional freedom Monday after a Bay County circuit judge said he did not violate terms of his probation on unrelated charges of lewd and lascivious child molestation. However, only moments before Wood left custody, authorities received DNA results that confirmed he was the father of a child born in 1995 after an alleged sexual battery on a 14-year-old victim, BCSO officials said. Wood was taken back into custody, charged with sexual battery and ordered held without bond. It was the second time Wood neared freedom before swiftly being arrested. The first time, Wood called Sheriff Frank McKeithen to complain that deputies were monitoring his activities and disturbing him through the night. 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 and received probation and the lifetime designation as a sex offender. At the time, however, investigators were awaiting paternity tests ordered by the court. Investigators were “still investigating a case involving (Wood) and a victim from 1994, who had a child with the defendant when (she) was 14 years old,” Matt Pavese, prosecutor in the case, wrote in an October memo. “We are currently awaiting DNA results of that case.” But the case concluded with the State Attorney’s Office not being able to place any of the alleged victims on the stand because several years had passed since the alleged 2006 child molestations.

Developer St. Andrew Bay Land Co. said that should change soon, as it hopes to begin building homes in the 700-acre SweetBay development in the next two weeks. Developer Jacob Fish said SweetBay will build nine model homes just south of University Academy Charter School. They will be built before other properties are available for sale. St. Andrew Bay Land Co. has completed 32 open lots, with utilities waiting for connection and 100 more in the first phase of the project. SweetBay is laid out in seven sections over the 700 acres, and the subsequent phases of development depend on the market interest for homes. But so far there has been a bevy of interest, similar to Whispering Dunes or Breakfast Point on Panama City Beach, marketing representative Holly Pituch said. The interest mostly has been from families who want to live within walking distance of University Academy Charter School, which was finished in August as the first part of the development’s Phase I.

Page A2 | The News Herald | Thursday, January 15, 2015 & WASHINGTON (AP) — A federal judge on Wednesday overturned Labor Department regulations requiring overtime and minimum wage protection for 2 million home health care workers. U.S. District Judge Richard Leon had scrapped part of the rules in December, and Wednesday he completed the process. In his decision, Leon said the Labor Department’s concerns about wages for home care providers are understandable, but Congress is the appropriate forum in which to debate a complex issue affecting so many families. President Barack Obama announced the rules in 2011, avoiding a trip through a hostile Congress that would have been required had the administration chosen the legislative path. Obama presented the rules with fanfare as part of a campaign to boost the economy through executive branch action. The law Congress wrote in 1974 exempted home health care workers from wage and overtime requirements, Leon wrote, and nothing has happened to change that. “Here, yet again, the department is trying to do through regulation what must be done through legislation,” he said, adding that the exemption was meant to ensure affordability for the maximum number of families. Judge overturns home health care wage, overtime rules Singapore navy finds fuselage of AirAsia plane in Java Sea JAKARTA, Indonesia (AP) — A Singaporean navy ship has found the crashed AirAsia plane’s fuselage, a 30-meter-long section with a wing attached, in the Java Sea, authorities said Wednesday. Images taken by a remote-controlled vehicle from the ship showed parts of the plane’s wing and words on the fuselage, Singapore Defense Minister Ng Eng Hen said on his Facebook page. He said Indonesian search officials have been notified so they can begin recovery operations. The fuselage section that was found is 30 yards long and 10 yards wide with a height of 3 meters, Indonesia’s National Search and Rescue Agency chief Henry Bambang Soelistyo said. “The fuselage with a wing still attached on it was found in the priority search area and has been confirmed as part of AirAsia plane,” Soelistyo said. He added it was some 1.8 miles from the tail, which was found earlier, and 2,625 feet from the black boxes, at a depth of about 92 feet. The plane carrying 162 people disappeared from radar on Dec. 28 less than halfway into a two-hour flight from Surabaya, Indonesia, to Singapore. Many of the victims are believed to be entombed in the main section of the aircraft’s cabin. Also Wednesday, fishermen found two bodies along with plane seats and debris off the coast of South Kalimantan, bringing to 50 the total of bodies recovered so far. Y OSEMITE NATIONAL PARK, Calif. (AP) — A pair of Americans completed what had long been considered the world’s most difficult rock climb Wednesday, using only their hands and feet to scale a 3,000-foot vertical wall on El Capitan, the forbidding granite pedestal in Yosemite National Park that has beckoned adventurers for more than half a century. Tommy Caldwell and Kevin Jorgeson became the first to free-climb the rock formation’s Dawn Wall, a feat that many had considered impossible. They used ropes and safety harnesses to catch themselves in case of a fall, but relied entirely on their own strength and dexterity to ascend by grasping cracks as thin as razor blades and as small as dimes. The effort took 19 days as the two dealt with constant falls and injuries. But their success completes a yearslong dream that bordered on obsession for the men. Caldwell was the first to finish Wednesday afternoon. He waited on a ledge for Jorgeson, who caught up minutes later. The two embraced before Jorgeson pumped his arms in the air and clapped his hands above his head. Then they sat down for a few moments, gathered their gear, changed clothes and hiked to the nearby summit. A crowd of 200 people gathered in the meadow far below broke into cheers when the men reached the top. Their relatives watched from the ground using telescopic monitors. Caldwell’s mother, Terry, said her son could have reached the top several days ago, but he waited for his friend to make sure they got there together. “That’s a deep, abiding, lifelong friendship, built over suffering on the wall together over six years,” she said. The trek up the world’s largest granite monolith began Dec. 27. Caldwell and Jorgeson lived on the wall itself, eating and sleeping in tents fastened to the rock thousands of feet above the ground and battling painful cuts to their fingertips much of the way. Free-climbers do not pull themselves up with cables or use chisels to carve out handholds. Instead, they climb inch by inch, wedging their fingers and feet into tiny crevices or gripping sharp, thin projections of rock. In photographs, the two appeared at times like Spider-Man, with arms and legs splayed across the pale rock that has been described as smooth as a bedroom wall.

NATIO N & WORLD Thursday, January 15, 2015 | The News Herald | Page A3 have to wait until we have a rea sonable window to do a break-even analysis.” He said cuts to the service aren’t realistic, as there is generally a shortage of paramedics. The county could subsidize the service like many other counties or try to convince a private firm to take it over, he said. The county took over operation of the ambulance service on Oct. 1, 2013. “Anytime you take on an under taking of that magnitude, there’s a certain amount of risk,” County Commissioner Guy Tunnell said at the time. “We feel confident that our staff have thoroughly researched this issue.” In discussing whether the county should take over the service, com missioners wondered whether it would pay its own way. “Officially, the jury is still out on that,” Tunnell said at the time, not ing “as long as we can break even that’s the important thing.” Concerns about the recently turned for-profit Bay Medical Center Sacred Heart Health System running the county’s only ambulance ser vice led the commission to consider absorbing the service. The commis sion approved a $3 million line of credit to cover initial purchases and costs in the beginning months. It was intended that the service would eventually pay for itself. Of that line of credit, $2.5 million has been spent to buy new trucks and equipment and covering the first few months of operation of the service. As EMS operator, the county acquired 88 staff members and 14 ambulances from the previous owners. More ambulances will be purchased and added to the fleet as older ones will be rotated out, county officials said. In addition to the Bay Medical facility, the county is leasing substa tions in Callaway and Panama City Beach. AMBULANCE from Page A1 when they were as young as 3 years old, conflicted with others. “I have little doubt these girls are telling the truth; however, time has eroded their stories and their mem ories,” Pavese wrote. In general, the statute of limitations on a firstdegree felony is about four years after the victim turns 18, according to state law. However, prosecution of a sexual battery can com mence within one year after substantial DNA analysis of the crime is conducted, according to law. Wood was released with three years’ proba tion, but eight days later probation officers caught him without one piece of his court-required elec tronic monitoring device and apprehended him out side the Youngstown Motel on U.S. 231. Circuit Judge James Fensom later ruled the almost two hours Wood spent without the moni toring device was not a “substantial” nor “willful violation” of his probation. Wood again prepared for his release. However, as his probation reinstatement was processed, authorities received notice that DNA evidence from the pending paternity case had been returned and identified Wood as the father of a child allegedly conceived in rape, BCSO said. Wood was again taken into custody Monday before he left the Bay County Jail. In addition to the sexual battery charged he has a pending child support case that has been reopened in court.

Many people ask about the trail that extends from a proposed marina to the south street section of SweetBay, where much of the commercial space is planned. Others ask about access to the water, according to Pituch. “Our goal is to drive the value from the water inland,” Fish said of keeping development off the water. “Everybody gets the benefit of 5 miles of bayfront.” He said the entire development will take at least 15 years. The waterfront sections could be the last pieces to be completed. “It took us six months just to get dirt moved around,” Fish said. There also will be parks. Phase I of the development, called Academy Park, will have three. Fish said SweetBay will have 100 acres of green space. The company has just finished the landing page for its website, sweetbayfl.com , which answers some frequently asked questions from interested home buyers. Eventually, the site will allow people to sign up and show plans when they are made available. “SweetBay is one of the largest projects to ever have been approved in Panama City,” Commis sioner Mike Nichols said. “It’s good for Panama City.” SWEETBAY from Page A1 P ATTI BL AKE | The News Herald Construction equipment is seen on the site of the SweetBay development.WASH I NGTON ( AP) — Federal prosecutors say an Ohio man has been arrested in a plot to attack the U.S. Capitol and kill government officials inside the building.

Page A4 | The News Herald | Thursday, January 15, 2015 NATIO N & WORLD BEIRUT (AP) — With more than a thousand militants killed and ter ritory slipping away, the Islamic State group is losing its grip on the Syrian border town of Kobani under intense U.S.-led airstrikes and astonishingly stiff resistance by Kurdish fighters. It is a stunning reversal for the Islamic State group, which just months ago stood poised to conquer the entire town — and could pierce a carefully crafted image of military strength that helped attract foreign fighters and spread horror across the Middle East. “An IS defeat in Kobani would quite visibly undermine the percep tion of unstoppable momentum and inevitable victory that IS managed to project, particularly after it cap tured Mosul,” said Faysal Itani, a fel low at the Atlantic Council, referring to the militants’ seizure of Iraq’s second-largest city during its blitz into Iraq from Syria last summer. It would also rob the group of a “psychological edge that both facili tated recruitment and intimidated actual and potential rivals, as well as the populations IS controlled,” Itani said. In September, Islamic State fighters began capturing some 300 Kurdish villages near Kobani and thrust into the town itself, occu pying almost half of it. Tens of thou sands of refugees spilled across the border into Turkey. By October, Islamic State control of Kobani was so widespread it even made a propaganda video from the town featuring a captive British pho tojournalist, John Cantlie, to convey a message that Islamic State fight ers had pushed deep inside despite U.S.-led airstrikes. The town, whose capture would give the jihadi group control of a bor der crossing with Turkey and open direct lines between its positions along the border, quickly became a centerpiece of the U.S.-led air cam paign in Syria. U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry declared it would be “morally very difficult” not to help Kobani. The U.S.-led air assault began Sept. 23, with Kobani the target of about a half-dozen airstrikes on average each day, and often more. More than 80 percent of all coalition airstrikes in Syria have been in or around the town. Analysts, as well as Syrian and Kurdish activists, credit the air campaign and the arrival of heavily armed Kurdish peshmerga fight ers from Iraq, who neutralized the Islamic State group’s artillery advantage, for bringing key areas of Kobani under Kurdish control. These include a cultural center on a strategic hill overlooking several neighborhoods east and southeast of the town, which was captured in December, as well as a neighbor hood that houses government build ings and a police station. “The U.S.-led coalition air strikes turned the balance. ... Without airstrikes, most likely the city would have been much more difficult to defend,” said Wladi mir van Wilgenburg, an expert on Kurdish politics who writes for The Jamestown Foundation, a U.S.-based research center. “The peshmerga did play a role, but it was mostly the airstrikes.” In the past month, the Kurd ish fighters have made more advances, leading to a remark able battlefield shift. Rami Abdurrahman, who heads the Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, estimates the Kurds now con trol about 80 percent of Kobani. Kurdish forces offer similar esti mates. Four months after barrel ing into the town, the extremists barely hold Kobani’s southern and eastern edges, activists and residents say, despite weekly reinforcements to protect what it clearly views as a major stra tegic prize.

But they shouldn’t expect much help from the Internal Revenue Service. Got a question for the IRS? Good luck reaching someone by phone. The tax agency says only half of the 100 million people expected to call this year will be able to reach a person. Callers who do get through might have to wait on hold for 30 minutes or more to talk to someone who will answer only the simplest questions. “Taxpayers who need help are not getting it, and tax compliance is likely to suffer over the longer term if these problems are not quickly and decisively addressed,” said a report Wednesday by agency watchdog Nina E. Olson. IRS Commissioner John Koskinen said budget cuts are forcing the agency to reduce taxpayer services and other functions. The number of audits will decline, technology upgrades will be delayed and the agency might be forced to shut down and furlough work ers for two days later this year, Koskinen said. The IRS will no longer help low-income taxpayers fill out their returns, and tax refunds could be delayed for people who file paper returns. “It couldn’t be worse tim ing,” Koskinen said of the bud get cuts. Congress cut the IRS by $346 million for the bud get year that ends Sept. 30. Koskinen says the agency’s $10.9 billion budget is its low est since 2008. When adjusted for inflation, the budget hasn’t been this low since 1998, he said. Republicans in Congress adamantly oppose Obama’s health law, so some have been working to starve the IRS of funds just as its role in imple menting the law ramps up. It won’t work, Koskinen said. The agency, he said, is required by law to help imple ment the health program. “The only places we have discretion are in information technology, tax enforcement, customer service.” The spending cuts could actually cost the govern ment money, Koskinen said. Having fewer enforcement agents will cost at least $2 billion in lost tax revenue this year, he estimated. Service problems at the IRS also will make it harder for well-intentioned taxpayers to comply with the law, said Olson, who is the National Taxpayer Advocate, an inde pendent office within the IRS. “Without adequate sup port, many taxpayers will be frustrated, some will make potentially costly mistakes, others will incur higher com pliance costs when forced to seek information and assis tance from tax professionals,” she said. “Still others,” Olson said, “will simply give up and not file.” Olson released her annual report to Congress Wednes day, less than a week before the start of tax filing season on Tuesday. In it she raises con cerns about the IRS’s ability to help implement the health law. She said the agency was unable to adequately test the accuracy of some information received from health insur ance exchanges. Also, delays affected the training of IRS employees.

IS group losing Kobani ground WASHINGTON (AP) — As Hillary Rodham Clinton builds up her expected presidential campaign, she’s recruiting veterans of President Barack Obama’s two successful White House runs, signal ing to supporters that she’s taking steps to avoid a repeat of her failed 2008 bid. The overlap between Obama’s long time aides and Clinton’s emerging cam paign also deepens the merger of the Democratic Party’s two most powerful factions. Even as the party’s liberal wing searches for a potential alternative to Clinton, an alliance between the White House and her campaign would offer a contrast with the wide-open fight among Republicans for their nominee. Among the Obama operatives joining their former rival’s campaign are Joel Benenson, the president’s longtime poll ster who will take on the broader role of chief political strategist for Clinton, and Jim Margolis, who will serve as her top media adviser, the same role he held in Obama’s campaigns. A Democratic official familiar with Clinton’s decision-making confirmed the moves. This official, like other Demo crats aware of Clinton’s maneuvers, was not authorized to publicly discuss the developments and spoke on condition of anonymity. Clinton has not declared her candi dacy, but the addition of top Democratic talent to her team is among the clearest signs that an announcement is forth coming. Clinton has paid speeches and appearances on behalf of the Clinton Foundation scheduled through March, suggesting her campaign might not begin until the spring “Hillary knows that the last campaign didn’t go well,” said David Axelrod, a longtime Obama adviser. “For those asking if ’16 will be different, these are some very strong signals.” Clinton supporters have been prod ding the former secretary of state to manage her 2016 team differently than her last campaign, which was under mined by a mismanagement and inter nal strife. Her campaign also struggled to keep up with the more technologi cally savvy, data-driven Obama team, which revolutionized the ability to tar get specific voters. Clinton and her team have signaled they understand the need to fix the problems of 2008 and take advantage of the framework Obama created. Among the 2008 Clinton veterans not expected to return are pollster and strategist Mark Penn, who was seen as a polar izing figure within her campaign, and former campaign manager Patti Solis Doyle. Clinton’s campaign likely is to include loyalists who have worked for her and Bill Clinton during the couple’s decades in politics, including some who were with them during the 1990s and her 2008 campaign. Among them: John Podesta, who is leaving the White House in Feb ruary as a presidential counselor and is expected to become Clinton’s campaign chairman. Mickey Kantor, the chairman of Bill Clinton’s 1992 campaign and a former U.S. trade representative, said Pod esta would fill the critical role of being “someone who can talk to the principal in a way that’s candid and direct.” Clinton recruiting Obama veterans for expected presidential campaign

U.S. stocks fell from the start of trading on a report that consumers pulled back on spending last month and on a slump in European markets. At one point, the Dow Jones industrial average shed almost 350 points. Investors dumped some key commodities on fears global growth is stalling, pushing the price of copper to a five-year low, and they piled into German, British and U.S. government bonds. The yield on the 30-year U.S. Treasury fell to its lowest on record. “We haven’t seen volatility like this for years,” said John Canally, investment strategist for LPL Financial. “People are more worried.” Precious metals (New York spot price) Gold Silver Platinum BOSTON (AP) — Uber has reached an agreement with Bos ton to share information about the trips passengers take using its on-demand service, a turn around for a company that in the past has been reluctant to hand over data to government regulators. Uber, which announced the deal Tuesday, says it will provide Boston with the distance and time passengers traveled using the ride-hailing service, as well as general pick-up and drop-off locations. The San Franciscobased company promises the information, which it will provide quarterly starting in about two weeks, will be anonymous and protect drivers’ and passengers’ personal information. Meghan Joyce, general manager of Uber Boston, said Wednesday that the data can help city officials adjust traf fic light patterns, reduce road congestion, focus transit invest ments and prioritize street repairs. “The implications for the insights that come out of this data are enormous,” she said. Jascha Franklin-Hodge, Bos ton’s chief information officer, says the information will also help on a range of planning and development decisions. “For us, it’s really a tool to look at the overall characteristics of road ways, trends and changes,” he said. “It’s not a tool to zoom into every detail of every individual and ride. That’s not our goal here.” Uber, which has fought other government requests for simi lar data, said it hopes to reach similar agreements in other U.S. cities. Uber is in a court battle with the California Public Utili ties Commission over trip data. The agency made submitting the data a condition of approv ing ride-hailing services, which generally allow users to request and pay for a car service through their cellphones. Uber has refused to turn over the data even as competitors Lyft and Sidecar have. Uber agrees to share trip data with Boston DETROIT (AP) — The head of self-driving cars for Google expects consumers to be using them on public roads in two to five years. Chris Urmson said the cars would still be test vehicles, and Google would collect data on how they interact with other vehicles and pedestrians. Google is working on sensors to detect road signs and other vehi cles, and software that analyzes all the data. The small, bulbous cars without steering wheels or pedals are being tested at a Google facility in California. Urmson wouldn’t give a date for putting driverless cars on roads en masse, saying that the system has to be safe enough to work properly. He told reporters Wednesday at the Automotive News World Con gress in Detroit that Google doesn’t know yet how it will make money on the cars. Urmson wants to reach the point where his test team no longer has to pilot the cars. “What we really need is to get to the point where we’re learning about how people interact with it, how they are using it, and how can we best bring that to market as a product that people care for,” he said. Google might face state regula tory hurdles depending on where it chooses to test the cars in pub lic. Under legislation that Google persuaded California lawmakers to pass in 2012, self-driving cars must have a steering wheel and pedals. Several other states have passed laws formally allowing autonomous cars on public roads without that restriction. The company in December announced that it had a fully func tioning prototype that’s been driv ing on its test track. It hoped to see the cars on the road in northern California this year, but they would have to have safety drivers and temporary manual controls. Google also confirmed that it has hired Roush Enterprises Inc., a Detroit-area company that designs and builds prototypes for the auto industry, to build 150 prototype Google autonomous cars. Urmson said Google is making laser and other sensors for the cars smaller and less costly. He predicted that the cars would fail at some point on public roads, but said Google’s cars have been driven more than 700,000 miles on public roads without causing a crash. Google expects public in driverless cars in 2 to 5 years By VALERIE GARMAN 747-5076 | @valeriegarman vgarman@pcnh.com PANAMA CITY — Bay County Economic Development Alli ance (EDA) official Becca Hardin dropped “interim” from her title Wednesday to become the orga nization’s new president, after a vote by the organization’s execu tive committee at its first gather ing of 2015. During the meeting, Hardin presented an overview of the EDA’s goals for the coming year, which includes plans to heav ily market Bay County’s offer ings to companies across the globe. She cited the Northwest Florida Beaches International Airport, Port Panama City, and programs through Haney Technical Center and the area’s colleges as just a few assets that help Bay County stand out from the competition. “We’re in the process of generating a buzz around Bay County as we head into 2015,” Hardin said. “We’re ready to show Bay County to the world.” Hardin stepped in as interim president of the EDA after former president Neal Wade resigned in November to take on a position at the University of Alabama, where he is working to establish a new economic development academy. EDA executive committee member and former Florida House Speaker Allan Bense said he was impressed by Hardin’s enthusiasm about Bay County’s potential and made the motion to appoint her the new EDA president. Bense’s motion passed unanimously. Hardin relayed a list of ongoing EDA projects, which included a handful she reported were moving forward to the next step. The list included three new projects, including an avia tion and aerospace project from Enterprise Florida proposing 248 new jobs for the area. But while Bay County still might be waiting for that “home run” project, Hardin said those situations are very rare. “Economic development is a marathon, not a sprint,” she said. “We have to focus on what’s right for Bay County. We want to set those realistic expectations.” During Wednesday’s meeting, the board also approved a new slate of officers for the coming year. John Juchniewicz was elected chairman for 2015 and will take over for former Chairman John Ed McDanal. Other officers for this year include Vice Chairman Clint Mizell, Treasurer Wayne Stubbs and Secretary Jorge Gonzalez.

Brady Calhoun, Editorial Page Editor 747-5075 | @sbradycalhoun bcalhoun@pcnh.comRICK MCKEE | The Augusta Chronicle T he phrase “I’m sorry” wasn’t in the mix, but the White House’s tentative, tiptoeing apology for not representing the United States more prominently in Sunday’s huge march against terrorism in Paris was nonetheless remarkable. It was a rare admission by Barack Obama’s team, normally well tuned to optics, that it hadn’t realized how bad the president would look. “It’s fair to say we should have sent someone with a higher profile,” White House spokesman Josh Earnest said Monday. Someone with a higher profile, in other words, than Ambassador Jane Hartley, who was barely noticed. That someone could have been President Obama himself. He didn’t go. It could have been Vice President Joe Biden. He didn’t go. It could have been Secretary of State John Kerry, who in fact speaks French. He didn’t go. A roster of world leaders did go, including Germany’s Angela Merkel and Israel’s Benjamin Netanyahu. The crowd that filled the boulevards of Paris was estimated at more than a million. America’s low profile was embarrassing. Talk in Washington is that Mr. Obama didn’t realize the anti-terror march would be such a big deal. That’s doubtful. More likely, he didn’t go because the march wasn’t his deal. In the last half of his last term as president, Barack Obama is eager to leave his mark, to craft a legacy, and not nearly as excited about history as shaped by others. This was evident last month, when his overture to Cuba and the Sony Pictures hacking scandal were competing for headlines. Asked about Sony during a press conference, Mr. Obama gave an answer that bordered on dismissive. The Sony affair at that moment was getting more ink and more air time; the Cuba story had become yesterday’s news; and he was miffed. He wasn’t interested in the Sony narrative. Similarly, Mr. Obama wasn’t interested in the “Paris stands up to terrorism” narrative, either, until his lack of interest drew criticism. Such petulance is unbecoming the leader of the free world. We hope that as Europe and the United States work together to combat terrorism, the president can put aside his peevishness and acknowledge that, sometimes, great events proceed without his guidance.

Stigler, is how Dr. Thomas Sowell begins the fifth edition of “Basic Economics.” It’s a book that explains complex economic phenomena in a way that many economists cannot. And, I might add, it provides an understanding of some economic phenomena that might prove elusive to a Ph.D. economist. “Basic Economics” is a 653page book, not including the index. One doesn’t have to start reading it at the beginning. Near the book’s end, there’s a section titled “Questions,” and it points the reader to answers. How about this question: How can the prices of baseball bats be affected by the demand for paper or the prices of catcher’s mitts be affected by the demand for cheese? Another question easily answered is: Why would luxury hotels be charging lower rates than economy hotels in the same city? Then there’s: Can government-imposed prices for medical care reduce the cost of that care? I’m not going to give the answers away; you’ll have to read the book. The bottom line is that an understanding of material contained in “Basic Economics” would prevent us from falling easy prey to charlatans, hustlers and quacks. Sowell points out that the most basic thing that can be said about economics is that we live in a world of scarcity. That means — whether our policies, practices and institutions are wise or unwise, noble or ignoble — there is never enough of anything to satisfy all of our desires. What are sometimes called “unmet needs” are inherent to any society, whether it’s capitalist, socialist, feudal or any other kind of society. Economics is not just about goods and services that we enjoy as consumers. It’s more fundamentally about productivity — that is, how the use of land, labor, capital and other inputs that go into producing the volume of output determines a nation’s wealth. Decisions about how to use those inputs might be more important than the resources themselves. There are countries, such as Japan and Switzerland, that have far greater wealth than countries — for example, Uruguay and Venezuela — that are far richer in natural resources. I would add as an aside to Sowell’s discussion that the human mind is the ultimate resource. I’ve asked students why it was that George Washington didn’t have guided missiles with which to pummel the British or a cellphone to communicate with his troops. After all, the physical resources that are necessary to make missiles and cellphones were around at the time. In fact, the physical resources were also around at the time of the caveman. What wasn’t around was the ingenuity from the human mind to make missiles and cellphones. One part of Sowell’s introductory chapter deals with the role of economics. A popular misconception is that economics is about opinions, running a business or the ups and downs of stock markets. Economics is a systematic study of cause and effect, showing what happens when you do specific things in specific ways. The path to understanding outcomes is to examine consequences of decisions in terms of incentives they create rather than goals they pursue. Paying attention to goals rather than incentives has been responsible for disastrous public policy. The minimum wage law is one example. Its goal is to provide “living wages.” It creates incentives for employers to reduce and seek substitutes for labor and thereby causes unemployment for some workers. Rent control laws are enacted to provide “affordable housing.” They provide incentives for landlords to convert apartments to condominiums, create black markets and reduce housing construction in rent-controlled areas. The fact that Sowell’s “Basic Economics” has been translated into seven different languages speaks well of its usefulness in transmitting fundamental economic understanding. Reading it can benefit ordinary people, as well as Ph.D. economists.Walter E . Williams is a professor of economics at George Mason University and a columnist with C reators Syndicate. W hen we arrived at the beach this winter, it was great to see Front Beach Road west of State 79 refinished with marked bike lanes. Now it was reasonably safe to ride a bike down it without too much danger of getting hit. I have enjoyed cruising the back streets and Pier Park for the past month seeing places I have missed during the past years. Monday’s article on Gayle’s Trails was great. Kudos to PCB for thinking of cyclists. Just a couple of things: The News Herald article would have been much more informative if they included a small graphic to depict the trails. Pier Park complex and other businesses could use some more bike stands. I can only find one in Pier Park, one by the new Wal-Mart and one by the McDonald’s next door. I’d bet locking your bike to a traffic sign is illegal. Getting into the PCB Conservation Area (it is great) off U.S. Highway 98 on a bike isn’t easy. I had to make a “mad coyote dash” across U.S. 98 at Vestavia to make it to a safe cycling street to access it. I know many consider cyclists insane and using the bike lanes on Back Beach with the speed and amount of traffic there would definitely prove out that assumption. Thank you PCB for improving things for the biking public. Great progress! J A CK ELL I OTT Rainy River, Ontario Chaos One terror event in France tied up 90,000 law enforcement personnel for several days to track down two or three radical Islamic terrorists. Can you imagine 10, 12 or 15 like events taking place in a coordinated fashion here in the U.S.? I am pointing this out in hopes of getting our elected officials to revisit our concealed carry laws. In Florida it is reported we have about five people out of 100 with a carry license. If you own a firearm you should have a license. The last time I checked it takes a few hours of training and $112 for a seven-year license at the Florida Department of Agriculture. You also have to be a law-abiding member of society. You can have a carry license and become a criminal real quick. You can pick your kid up or visit the principal at school. You can go to city hall and pay your water bill. You can stop at a bar and have a Coke. The list goes on and on. The point is we have created far too many “Gun Free Zones” which are the devil’s playground. It recently was reported that France announced all cops previously unarmed will be armed at all times. The police lay their lives on the line every day looking after our welfare and do a fine job of it. With what is apparently coming at us we would be much better off if several people were silently carrying concealed weapons at every entity in the state. A 911 call takes a few minutes at best while a speeding bullet only takes a fraction of a second to arrive at the scene of the crime. How safe do you feel where you spend your day? B OB SHE LMAN Panama City Climate change scam Many thanks to Merle C. Potter (Jan. 7, “Man-made climate change is not a real problem”) for shedding statistical light on the great “climate change” scam. I am certain there are millions of people who sincerely believe the crap spewed out by the promoters of “climate change.” They are being manipulated by a group whose objective is global redistribution of wealth. These people wish to cripple the industrial strength of the U.S. and other stable nations by restricting their access to fossil fuels. Did you know that in the early 19th century there was a renewed interest in finding a “northwest passage” around the north of Canada as a result of whaling ship captains reporting that the polar ice caps were melting and the area around Greenland was free of sea ice.

Co me by an d se e th e di ff er en ce he ar 850-78 4-43 27 Coupon “NERA ” Co mmun it yBa nk .ne t WASHINGTON (AP) — Federal regula tors have approved an appetite-suppressing implant designed to treat obesity by zapping nerves that connect the stomach and the brain. The Maestro Rechargeable System uses electrodes implanted in the abdomen to stimulate the vagus nerve, which signals to the brain that the stomach is empty or full. Patients and doctors can adjust the device settings using external controllers. Shares of EnteroMedics rose in trading Wednesday after the Food and Drug Admin istration said it approved the device for cer tain patients who are severely obese. It’s the first medical device approved for obesity since the agency’s 2007 approval of a gastric band from Ethicon. The FDA approved the device for patients 18 and older who have been unable to lose weight via a supervised weight-loss program and have a body mass index of 35 to 40 with one other obesity-related health condition, such as diabetes. BMI is an estimate of body fat based on weight and height. Someone who is 5-foot-9 would be severely obese — with a BMI of 35 — at 240 pounds. EnteroMedics said the device’s two elec trodes are implanted via a minimally-inva sive surgical procedure, which could make the device system a less invasive alternative to other weight-loss surgeries. The device has an external battery that needs to be recharged weekly. The St. Paul, Minnesotabased company compares it to a pacemaker. A company executive said the device is already approved in Europe and Australia though it is not yet on sale. EnteroMedics plans to focus on the device’s U.S. launch, targeting sales to surgical centers. The com pany is also pursuing reimbursement from health care insurance providers. FDA approves appetite-zapping implant for obese patients GASTONIA, N.C. (AP) — A school bus carrying 45 stu dents from a North Carolina middle school overturned Wednesday on a two-lane road, injuring 15 of the chil dren, authorities said. None of the injuries appeared serious. The North Carolina Highway Patrol determined that a compartment door above the driver fell open, causing a distraction shortly before the afternoon acci dent, according to spokes man Todd Hagans of the Gaston County Schools. He said the patrol learned that as the driver tried to close the door, the bus swerved and overturned. According to Hagans, the compartment usually holds a fire extinguisher, as well as video and GPS equipment. Hagans said 11 students were taken to a Gastonia hospital and four more to a hospital in nearby Kings Mountain. Details of their injuries were not released. Hagans said the driver wasn’t injured and that the remaining children were picked up afterward. TV footage showed the yellow bus resting on its right side, blocking both lanes with its back half jut ting off the shoulder. Both rooftop hatches and the rear door were open and the roof appeared dented. Emergency officials clus tered nearby, spreading tarps and gear to attend to the injured. Some of the stu dents wrapped themselves in blankets given to them. The highway patrol said speed was not a factor in the accident. The Charlotte Observer reported that several par ents, upon hearing about the bus accident, rushed to the area and waited anxiously beyond police barricades. Melanie Massagee said her 13-year-old grandson was on the bus. She said his head and arm were hurt ing, but he had no serious injuries.

Paris gunman’s safe house could hold clues to 4th attacker PARIS (AP) — Amedy Coulibaly, the gun man who killed four hostages at a Paris kosher supermarket, rented a small subur ban house the week before and filled it with an impressive arsenal of late-model weap ons, police said Wednesday. A published report said a search of the house has enabled police to identity a poten tial fourth attacker as investigators follow the money and supply systems for the three known killers, all of whom died in police raids. Police said as many as six members of the same radi cal Islamic terror cell could be at large. “We have put our finger on some extremely dangerous people, men and women,” French police union spokesman Christophe Crepin said. “We are really in a war.” Of special interest is the small attached house on a quiet street in the town of Gen tilly south of Paris that Coulibaly rented about two weeks ago. French police officials refused to say what has been discovered inside the dwelling, but the newspaper Le Parisien reported detectives from the Paris Criminal Brigade and a special police antiterrorism unit seized a scooter there that allowed them to identity “a fourth man” who acted as Coulibaly’s accomplice. The newspaper did not identify the man by name, but said he might have shot and seriously wounded a jogger in nearby Fon tenay-aux-Roses on Jan. 7, the same day two friends of Coulibaly, brothers Cherif and Said Kouachi, killed 12 people at the offices of Char lie Hebdo. “The fourth man,” who has a lengthy criminal record, might have been involved in that attack, the newspaper reported, adding he might have already escaped to Syria. Al-Qaida in Yemen claimed responsibil ity for the brothers’ attack, but it had been unclear which brother had made that con nection. On Wednesday, the U.S. officials said Cherif Kouachi is believed to have gone to train in Yemen in 2011 but used his brother Said’s ID. 3 bodies found in clandestine grave at Honduras youth lockup TEGUCIGALPA, Honduras (AP) — Three bodies were dis covered in a clandestine grave at a gang-dominated teen lockup and are believed to be inmates previously thought to have escaped, Honduran authorities said Wednesday. The dismembered corpses were unearthed near a perim eter wall at the Renacimiento Center for the Rehabilitation of Minors, criminal investi gations chief Ricardo Castro told reporters. The wall separates the juvenile detention facility from the country’s only wom en’s prison. The facilities are about 12 miles north of the capital of Tegucigalpa. One of the bodies has already been identified as an inmate who disappeared a year ago and was reported as a fugitive, Castro said. Foren sic tests were continuing, and authorities were looking for more possible graves. “We are checking the entire grounds of Renacimiento, especially the wettest parts and where there are signs of recently disturbed soil,” Castro said. More than 160 inmates ages 12 to 18 are housed at Renacimiento, most of them members of the Barrio 18 gang. A force of more than 150 police officers, soldiers, judges, prosecutors and forensic experts began comb ing the grounds Monday.

By ZACK McDONALD 747-5071 | @PCNHzack zmcdonald@pcnh.com PARKER — The parents of a child have been arrested after their 5-month-old was hospitalized with a fractured arm and broken ribs, according to Parker Police Department documents. Molly Elizabeth Bush, 38, and Eric Dewayne Smitherman, 26, have been charged with child neglect and aggravated child abuse, respectively. Police intervened after an incident Monday that ended with their child sent to a local hospital. Bush and Smitherman were taken to the Bay County Jail, police reported. Smitherman allegedly shook the child to stop the infant from crying. The baby suffered a spiral fracture to the left arm and broken ribs, according to arrest reports. Police said Bush, the child’s mother, did not try to stop Smitherman from shaking the infant. She also did not contact law enforcement before she took the baby to the hospital, police said. Police said Smitherman was on drugs at the time, according to arrest reports. Bush told investi gators she had sold Smitherman hydro codone, and that he previously had been under the influence of cocaine and methamphetamine. Bush told police Smitherman had been violent with her other children in the past, but she did not report those incidents. Smitherman was arrested in January 2014 for battery on Bush while she was pregnant with the child. He also was charged with depriving a victim of communication with law enforcement when Bush tried to call police. Panama City police dispatchers heard a brief moment of the fight before Smitherman snatched the phone from Bush and hung up, court records indicated. During his bond hearing Monday, Smitherman asked to be freed on bond because he had to care for his elderly mother. “Weren’t you also supposed to be caring for your child?” Circuit Judge Shane Vann replied. Smitherman is being held without bond after violating his probation from the January 2014 incident. He was given a $50,000 bond for the aggravated child abuse charge. Bush’s bond was set at $15,000.

The motel has been closed and fenced off for at least four years, and has had two fires and ongoing issues with vagrancy. Construction crews began the process to demolish the structure earlier this week. “Our homeowners have been begging and asking for the past year when it’s coming down,” said Lamar Griffin, maintenance supervisor at OceanVilla Condominiums next door.

BROWSE A VIDEO AND PHOTO GALLERY AT NEWSHERALD.COM Callaway: Chickens can stay By BEN KLEINE 522-5114 | @BenKleinepcnh bkleine@pcnh.com CALLA W AY — Mayor Thomas Abbott delivered an impassioned speech about freedom and maintaining a way of life. It also happened to be about chickens. The Callaway City Commission discussed an ordinance Tuesday night that would have restricted residents to keeping six chickens per parcel and required them to register each chicken for a $5 perchicken fee. “You can buy cooked ones for that price,” Commissioner Ralph Hollister said of the fee. Abbott’s remarks helped settle the issue and received a round of applause from half the audience at the meeting. “I’m just going to say what I think. I don’t like this ordinance for a number of reasons,” he said. “I don’t believe in government putting a stop on the way people live their lives. We can find a way to eliminate the problem without eliminating the way of people’s lives. As much as I understand Mr. Gandy, I think this is a death knell. I think it’s overkill.” The commission voted unanimously against the ordinance. The proposed law was spurred by a disagreement between two Callaway residents dating back to June. Michael Gandy, who lives at 1039 Comet Ave., complained his neighbors had too many chickens that made too much noise. On the recommendation of Code Enforcement officer Bill Frye, the commission granted the first-ever chicken permit to Sandra Adams, who houses more than 60 chickens in a large coop in the back portion of her property. After Gandy’s complaint, Adams removed roosters from the property. “I did everything I was supposed to do,” Adams said. Gandy appeared with his lawyer, Don Dennis, to argue the ordinance needed to be tougher and include keeping the condition that chicken owners need to obtain neighbors’ permission. Abbott did state the commission will consider a future ordinance. “Clearly, this is an issue,” he said. “It’s our responsibility to try to solve it. We’ll go back to the drawing board.” SEE EYES ORE R AZED | B3 HEATHER LEIPHART | The News Herald Lola Renee Moore, pastor of the Marantha and Emmanuel SDA churches in Northwest Florida, speaks Wednesday at the Naval Surface Warfare Center’s Martin Luther King Jr. celebration. King’s message of pacifism presented at Warfare Center By CHRIS OL WELL 747-5079 | @PCNHchriso colwell@pcnh.com NAVAL SUPPORT ACTIVITY PANAMA CITY — What would happen if the military adopted the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr.’s message of nonviolent confrontation and radical love? It’s hard to imagine anyone will ever know for sure, but Pastor Lola Moore seemed to steer military members at a Martin Luther King Jr. Day Observance at the Navy base Wednesday toward the type of pacifism King practiced, speaking of the threat man poses to humanity. “By (God’s) grace, we have an earth that is still here. We have a United States that is still present, and it is only present because someone decided that they would not annihilate someone else, only present because someone withheld the kind of force they could’ve used in order to kill,” Moore said. The iconic civil rights leader might have turned 86 on Friday if he hadn’t been assassinated in Memphis, Tenn., in 1968. Moore, who leads two Northwest Florida congregations, opened her presentation with a recording of words King once spoke. “One of the great problems of history is that the concepts of love and power have usually been contrasted as opposites, polar opposites, so that love is identified with a resignation of power and power with a denial of love,” King said, later adding, SEE KING’S MESSAGE | B3

Bay County is updating its “Local Mitigation Strategy” plan, which looks at natural disasters that have occurred in the past and uses mitigation measures to try to prevent the same kind of damage from recurring. On Wednesday morning, a consultant took public input at one of several meetings scheduled in the coming months. The next workshop is scheduled for Feb. 25, when flood plain management strategies will be discussed. The audience of more than 20 people at the Bay County Government Center included a few residents who live in flood zones on Panama City Beach as well as officials from city, county and state agencies, and floodplain consultants.“This effort is going to help improve our flood prevention and flood loss policies and could ultimately have an effect on residents’ flood insurance premiums,” Bay County planner Wayne Porter said. Joy Duperault, a staff planner with Arcadis, a Tallahassee consulting firm that is helping to update the plan, led the discussion. “How can we reduce future losses? That is what this plan is all about: reducing future losses from natural disasters, so you set up some goals and some objectives,” she said. The projects identified in the plan — such as drainage and building retrofitting — receive state or federal hazard mitigation funding, which often requires a local match. From 2004 to 2009, 58 mitigation projects were identified and more than $32 million was awarded. Many of the projects outlined in the plan that have received state and federal funds over the years were designed to make buildings that had been damaged by storms sturdier. The mitigation plan is updated every five years and was last done in fiscal 2009-2010. “Historical experience has demonstrated that the county and its municipalities can be affected by flooding, winds associated with tropical storms/hurricanes, tornados and wildfires,” the executive summary of the 2010 plan states. It adds that the plan proposes appropriate actions to reduce damage or impairment to homes, businesses, schools and government offices. “So mitigation kind of comes in as recovery is starting,” Duperault said. “We don’t want to just build (a structure) back the way it was, because look what happened to it. It got flattened. We want to build it back better. We want to elevate that house. We want to acquire these properties that flood over and over and over again.” Ralph Harris, who lives on Panama City Beach, said he had the good fortune to receive a grant to elevate his home after floods. He said he saw the benefit in the planning. “We had our house get flooded three or four times,” he said. “There was a lack of response on a county level until I approached emergency management, and they were able to get me involved in some programs that would mitigate the problem. You have to be an advocate for your process. I think with meetings like this, it is going to put a little bit more of the burden on the county to seek out the people that are in need.” Harris said in the last year there has been a lot of drainage work in his neighborhood. “They’ve created more areas for water to shed in the last year than I’ve ever seen,” he said. “So some of the money has been appropriated to the county to do those things. Obviously, they are getting serious about it or you wouldn’t be having this lady come down and do what she’s doing today.” Mexico Beach City Administrator Mell Smigielski said he attended because he felt it could help the city get some “projects on the map.” “We’ve had some damage to our pier,” he said. “It would be nice to get that on the map for some rehabilitation. We have canals that need some rehabilitation. We have a lift station that leaks and has filtration (issues) we need to take care of, which a storm would definitely impact.” He said the city also has a lot of questions to answer when it comes to natural disaster response. “I asked the question (to staff): In the case of a hurricane or natural disaster, where do we go?’ ” he said. “The answer was, ‘Nowhere on Mexico Beach.’ ” The final draft of the plan will be up for review March 18. It will be forwarded to the Florida Division of Emergency Management’s Hazard Mitigation Division for review and then considered for adoption by all local governments. HOW TO COMMENT Comments should be addressed in writing to Sid Busick, local mitigation strategy deputy chairman, 700 Highway 2300, Panama City, FL 324095090; by email at sbusick@baycounty.gov; or call 850-248-6043. Include a return contact so questions or concerns can be addressed. Unusual coalition seeks ballot measure to expand solar power TALLAHASSEE (AP) — Tea partiers, Libertarians, conservative Christians, Florida’s largest retail association, and clean energy advocates announced Wednesday that they are joining a petition drive aimed at expanding the use of solar energy in Florida. Members of the unusual coalition said they want to take the issue to the voters because they are frustrated the Legislature has done little to advance use of the clean energy in the state that gets the most solar radiant energy east of the Mississippi River. They blamed it on the millions of dollars power companies pump into political donations and lobbying. The group will try to put a proposed constitutional amendment on the 2016 ballot that would allow private companies not regulated as utilities to sell up to two megawatts of solar energy to customers. The solar facilities would have to be on the same or adjacent property as the customer’s. “The monopoly utilities are using their financial influence to corrupt the political process here in Tallahassee,” said Stephen Smith, executive director of the Southern Alliance for Clean Energy. “When utilities want something and they use their money to stop it, that’s not good public policy.” A report by the government watchdog group Integrity Florida found the state’s four largest power companies contributed more than $18 million to political parties and candidates between 2004 and 2012 and spent more than $12.5 million on lobbyists between 2007 and 2013. A spokesman for Florida Power & Light, Florida’s largest power company, would not comment on the petition drive. Sterling Ivey, a spokesman for Duke Energy, did not directly address the petition, but wrote in an email, “Solar power and other renewable resources will be an important part of Florida’s energy future. We are committed to energy policies where solar options are fair and beneficial to all of our customers. ” The alliance also includes the tea party-backed Conservatives for Energy Freedom, the Christian Coalition of America, the Florida Retail Federation and other clean energy groups. “I support coal, I support nuclear, I support gas, I support solar, I support biofuel, I support all energy forms,” said Debbie Dooley, who helped start Georgia’s largest tea party group. “We need energy choice and freedom.” Will Craven, a spokesman for SolarCity, a California-based company with 8,500 employees that installs solar panels on rooftops, said the collaboration between the Tea Party and solar industry is a growing trend. “This shows that the thousands of conservative voters who have gone solar across the country are beginning to have their interests represented politically,” Craven said. “Everybody knows Florida is a sleeping giant of the rooftop solar industry, and there’s an opportunity for leadership from someone to allow the job growth and consumer choice that is available in other states across the country.” The group will have to collect 683,149 signatures to make the ballot. Members said they are encouraged that voters overwhelmingly approved a ballot question in November that will dedicate state money for land and water conservation. Tory Perfetti, chairman of the group organizing the petition drive, said Florida is one of the most restrictive states when it comes to promoting solar power, but there is growing support from a wide range of political and business interests to increase its use. “This is an overwhelmingly popular, popular ballot initiative,” he said. “This is going to happen.”

EYESORE RAZED from Page B1 Griffin thought back to last fall when a strong wind storm sent pieces of the dilapidated building flying onto neighboring properties and into traffic on Front Beach Road. “When the last of the roofing blew off, we were picking it up out of our property,” he said. Canadian snowbirds Andy and June Campbell caught a bit of the action during a walk late Tuesday. The couple has been visiting the area for three years and said it’s about time the old motel was demolished. “Every year we come down and say, surely they’ve gotten rid of it,” June Campbell said. “Boy, we’re glad to see that come down,” her husband added. Panama City Beach building inspectors deemed structure unsafe in 2013 and requested it be demolished, but push-back from the property owner halted the process for several months. “It’s a long time coming,” Panama City Beach Councilman Keith Curry said of the demolition. “This eyesore, it was a danger to the community and now it’s going away.” To combat the resistance from the owner, the City Council updated its 30-year-old abatement code to add language to quicken the process to remedy nuisance properties. The new ordinance gives the city the power to assess properties and place any city-incurred fines or demolition expenses on the property owner’s tax bill if the structure is declared a nuisance. Curry said the changes will help set a precedent for other properties. “The big thing is, the taxpayers aren’t on the hook for it,” Curry said. “With the assessment, we will work with you on the property, but if you don’t do what’s right ... the Panama City Beach government will take care of it for you.” John Alaghemand, who heads the Panama City Beach Community Redevelopment Agency, said removing eyesores will help pave the way for the next phase of improvements along Front Beach Road. Segment two of the CRA’s Front Beach Road improvement project will redevelop a 1.1-mile stretch that runs in front of the Beach Club Motel property. The work will include wider traffic lanes, sidewalks, landscaped medians and designated lanes for public transit. Alaghemand said the city is preparing to advertise the job and could award contracts as early as April. “This phase will kind of show what our vision is for the rest of Front Beach Road,” said Alaghemand, who added that the project could significantly increase property values along the corridor. “All of the property owners are very excited about the second phase.” HEATHER LEIPHART | The News Herald Lola Moore, pastor of the Maranatha and Emmanuel SDA Churches in Northwest Florida, said Martin Luther King Jr.’s interpretation of the teachings of Jesus to love thy neighbor and turning the other cheek could be perceived to apply to anyone in any context. KING’S MESSAGE from Page B1 “We’ve got to get this thing right. What is needed is a realization that power without love is reckless and abusive and that love without power is sentimental and anemic. Power at its best is love.” Although she doesn’t come from a military background, Moore said King’s interpretation of the teachings of Jesus to love thy neighbor and turning the other cheek could be perceived to apply to anyone in any context. “I recognize that I’m speaking from a place of navet, but I believe that sometimes if you show some restraint — and somehow model or give teaching — that maybe there are some people who are acting in ways that are destroying themselves and others now who, with teaching, could do better,” Moore said. Capt. Phillip Dawson, commander of the Naval Surface Warfare Center Panama City Division, said after Moore’s presentation that an organization of men and women willing to sacrifice their lives for one another is not without love. ANDREW WARDLOW | The News Herald Heavy equipment tears down the Beach Club Motel in Panama City Beach on Wednesday. The motel has been closed and fenced off for at least four years.

News Herald staff reports SPRINGFIELD Theft suspect netted after chase A man suspected of stealing numerous vehicles was arrested Wednesday after a brief chase, the Bay County Sheriff’s Office reported. Steve Corzel Corbin was arrested on warrants for grand theft auto and felony retail theft and is believed to be connected to three stolen vehicles in Callaway, Parker and Panama City, a BCSO press release stated. Corbin was spotted at a residence by BCSO Warrants Division Capt. Joe Smiley about 7:15 a.m. Wednesday. The release said Corbin was driving a stolen Toyota Camry when Smiley began to follow him in an unmarked car. The vehicles did not go more than 40 mph in the pursuit. It ended on Sanders Lane in Springfield, when Corbin slowed the vehicle, jumped out and fled on foot, according to the release. The Camry came to a stop after hitting a parked car. Smiley caught Corbin and arrested him. Each theft involved vehicles that were unlocked with the keys inside, the release said. Some of the vehicles were left running, BCSO reported, and were taken from homes and a gas station. BCSO officials urged everyone to never leave unattended cars unlocked, especially while running, and to not leave keys inside. PANAMA CITY BEACH Man charged in sex sting Police have arrested a 59-year-old man who allegedly believed he was meeting a 14-year-old boy for sex, Panama City Beach Police Department announced Wednesday. David William Clanton was arrested after allegedly organizing a sexual encounter with a boy over the Internet. While Clanton believed he was communicating with a minor, investigators staged the meeting and arrested him, according to PCBPD officials. During the course of the investigation, Clanton allegedly sent nude digital images of himself to a person he believed to be a 14-year-old. He then agreed to travel to the minor’s residence for a sexual encounter, PCBPD reported. When Clanton arrived, though, officers arrested Clanton without incident. Clanton was later taken to the Bay County Jail on charges of traveling to meet a minor for a unlawful sexual act, soliciting a minor with an electronic device to engage in a sexual act and transmission of harmful material to minors, police reported. MARIANNA Man accused of bomb threat Authorities have arrested a Marianna man for allegedly calling in a bomb threat to a former employer, the Jackson County Sheriff’s Office announced Wednesday. More than 2,000 workers were evacuated after Assurant Insurance Co. in Miami received the bomb threat in November. The phone call was recorded and traced to a pay phone at the Florida Welcome Center in Campbellton, and employees of the insurance company contacted JCSO, according to the news release. The insurance company suspected a former employee, 47-year-old Michael Paul Pharmer, might be responsible, JCSO reported. JCSO investigators contacted the Florida Welcome Center and obtained a video from their surveillance system showing a subject matching Pharmer’s description in the building. Employees told authorities the man requested change for the pay phone. Investigators said they later questioned Pharmer and he admitted to making the phone call, reporting that a pipe bomb was going to go off inside the building. Pharmer was arrested Jan. 8 without incident and taken to the Jackson County Correctional Facility. Pharmer has been charged with making a false report about planting a bomb/explosive. PANAMA CITY BEACH Boil water notice issued Because of a water main break Wednesday, the Panama City Beach water supply line experienced a loss in pressure, meaning some customers might have discolored water for about a day after water service is fully restored, according to officials in Panama City Beach. Utility officials suggest customers in the following areas boil water used for drinking or cooking: 6500-6762 Harbour Boulevard and 1311-1318 Harbour Way Circle. Anyone with questions can call 233-5100 during business hours or 233-5050 after hours. CALLAWAY Traffic signal work continues Traffic signal maintenance work will continue along Tyndall Parkway. The work, which began Wednesday night, will continue through Friday. Drivers can expect to encounter intermittent lane closures at intersections between Tyndall Drive and Transmitter Road. PANAMA CITY Trumbull set to seek second term After cruising to an election win in November, state Rep. Jay Trumbull, R-Panama City, has taken an initial step toward seeking a second term in 2016, according to the state Division of Elections website. Trumbull last week opened a campaign account to run for re-election in Bay County’s House District 6. He received almost 69 percent of the vote in winning the seat in November. LYNN HAVEN Scholarship dance planned The local chapter of Beta Sigma Phi will hold its annual Valentine Scholarship Dinner Dance at 5:30 p.m. Feb. 7 at Panama Country Club. The dance will feature music by The Jam Kings, a full-course seated dinner, door prizes and a raffle drawing. Tickets are $35 and must be purchased before Feb. 3. To purchase tickets, call Quinta at 866-8469, Wanda at 763-6432 or see Sandy or Rita at Pier 77 Restaurant on Thomas Drive in Panama City Beach. Proceeds support local scholarships. PANAMA CITY Man shoots himself in hand Police responded to reports of a gunshot wound in the St. Andrews area Wednesday night. Panama City Police Department officers and criminal investigators arrived at 7104 Beck Ave. about 6:30 p.m. Officers said one of the residents sustained minor injuries when he dropped his gun and shot himself in the hand. The man declined medical treatment, and police have not filed charges.

COR B IN DAVID W. CLAN T ON Space station astronauts flee U.S. side, but no sign of leak CAPE CANAVERAL (AP) — In a rare scare, astronauts fled the American side of the International Space Station on Wednesday after an alarm indicated a possible toxic leak. NASA later said there was no leak of ammonia coolant and a computer problem likely set off the false alarm. By Wednesday afternoon, the astronauts were back in the U.S. part of the orbiting outpost. Earlier, the six crew members had huddled safely on the Russian side — once when the alarm sounded and again following an initial all-clear. “Hey everybody, thanks for your concern,” Italian astronaut Samantha Cristoforetti said via Twitter. “We’re all safe & doing well in the Russian segment.” The “unscheduled excitement,” as NASA called it, occurred about 3 a.m. CST, well into the station crew’s workday. As alarms blared, the astronauts followed emergency procedures in slapping on oxygen masks, taking cover in the Russian quarters, then sealing the hatches between the U.S. and Russian sides. At the same time, flight controllers at NASA’s Johnson Space Center in Houston turned off non-essential equipment. Within minutes, Mission Control gave an all-clear, but sent the astronauts scurrying back over to the Russian side again when there was more evidence of a possible leak of the coolant. The highly toxic liquid ammonia, flowing outside the space station, is used to cool electronics. Flight controllers originally feared it had gotten into the water system running inside. Now, it’s believed that a failed card in a computer-relay box was the culprit. The crew — three Russians, two Americans and the Italian Cristoforetti — stayed in the three, relatively small Russian compartments while Mission Control analyzed data. Engineers wanted to understand the computer failure and confirm “that the system is tight like we believe it to be,” space station program manager Mike Suffredini said on NASA TV. About 11 hours after the ammonia system-alarm sounded, the hatch to the U.S. segment was reopened. Cristoforetti and U.S. astronaut Terry Virts ran tests and no ammonia was detected. When the alarm went off, the crew had been dealing with supplies and experiments from the newly arrived SpaceX capsule — including fruit flies. None of the research appears to be jeopardized, Suffredini said. Russian space officials at first reported an actual leak, then backed off that statement. The 260-mile-high complex never has had to be abandoned during its 14-year occupation by astronauts. On occasion, crews have had to seek shelter in their Soyuz capsule “lifeboats” because of close shaves with orbiting junk, in case a quick getaway was needed. This time, the astronauts went into one of the three Russian modules as trained for an emergency, but not the two docked Soyuz capsules. In addition to Cristoforetti and Virts, the crew includes Commander Butch Wilmore, an American, and Russians Elena Serova, Alexander Samokutyaev and Anton Shkaplerov. Girls charged as juveniles in brother’s killing WHITE SPRINGS (AP) — Two sisters, ages 11 and 15, will be charged as juve niles in the slaying of their 16-year-old brother. Police said the 15-year-old girl had been locked in her room on Jan. 5 by her brother after their parents left. Police said after her brother fell asleep, the younger girl freed her sister. The older sister then went outside and climbed through the window of her parents’ locked bedroom to get a pistol, police said. The boy was shot once in the neck. As alarms blared, the astronauts followed emergency procedures in slapping on oxygen masks, taking cover in the Russian quarters, then sealing the hatches between the U.S. and Russian sides.

DIVERSIONS A ces On BRIDGE: B obby W olff Mom seeks antidote for holiday blues DEAR AM Y: My husband and I have been married eight years and have 6and 7-year-old sons. We got married when we were in our 40s and, with the exception of my father, who lives several states away and is in good health, our parents have either passed away or are in extremely poor health. I always have longed for close family relationships. My brother always has had “issues” that made him difficult to deal with and these problems have only become worse with time. We have been estranged for virtually the entire time I have been married and things were very strained before then. I was hoping when I got married that we could have a close relationship with my husband’s side of the family. However, his sister is difficult at best, his brother is an ex-con who is busy chasing every waitress between Denver and Kansas City, and my husband’s nephew (who has children about our kids’ ages) cheated my husband in a business deal (my husband has forgiven him) and he and his wife won’t have anything to do with us. I have reached out to each of these people numerous times over the past several years and not one of them will extend a hand back. Holidays are tough for me as I feel the loss of family. How can I move on and quit feeling so bad about this situation? LONE L Y DEAR LONE L Y: There is no magic antidote for the holiday blues — that wistfulness and sadness brought on by old movies, seasonal songs and romping-in-the-snow holiday cards. It simply must be endured. However, I hope it helps somewhat to know that many families are complicated by estrangement, loss, illness and the presence of skirt-chasing ex-cons. It’s not just you. If it makes you feel better to continue to try to connect with family members who don’t reciprocate, then keep trying. However, while you are doing this, keep your expectations realistic — and do your best to reach out in other directions. “Family” is not a status confined to those who share your DNA. “Family” also are the people who pick up your call on the first ring, put on a pot of coffee when you drop in, easily forgive your transgressions, laugh with you, cry alongside you, and — importantly — love your kids along with you. Do you have friends who fall into this category? If so, maybe you can create some new traditions, or at the very least take comfort in a new perspective. I wonder how many readers out there have honorary “aunts, uncles and cousins” — who are not actual family members but long-standing family friends. These relationships are a gift. DEAR AM Y: For my whole life, my mother has instilled in me the importance of handwritten thank-you notes. Suddenly she is saying it’s OK to email thank-yous to some people. I’m very confused! What is the best etiquette for me and my children regarding thank-yous? THANKING Y OU, TOO! DEAR THANKING: The best etiquette still involves pen (or crayon), paper, envelope and a stamp. Certainly this is a wonderful habit to instill in your children. However, I think people get so fixated on the propriety of thanking that they ignore other lively and valid thank-yous — not only verbal ones but email (and text). Using technology can be a great way to thank people — it’s quick and so easy to attach a photo or video showing the gift recipient enjoying the gift. One of my favorite recent thank-yous was sent through text message. I was thrilled to see my cousin’s baby cooing over the onesie I had sent — and I felt thoroughly and personally thanked.

Each number can appear only once in each row, level ranges from Bronze (easiest) to Silver to Gold (hardest). 2015 Janric Enterprises Dist. by creators.com Creators ARIE S (March 21A pril 19): Prestige is overrated. An overblown sense of importance and entitlement often leads to poor choices. Instead, bring the thing that will promote self-respect. T AURU S ( A pril 20-May 20): Don’t take for granted anyone’s character. Look at the details of the situation in context but also out of context. GE M INI (May 21-June 21): You will make magic for a person who doesn’t wholly believe that magic is real. This is a gift that gives twice — once with the magic and once with the soul-satisfying hope that it builds. C AN C ER (June 22-July 22): Regardless of your age, you need nurturing. If no one is providing it for you, you will have to provide it for yourself. Reluctance to do so is unnecessary obstinance. It’s what’s needed. L EO (July 23A ug. 22): They are paying attention to what you say today — maybe too much attention. If you’re uncertain, it’s best to say very little until you figure out the whole story. V IRGO ( A ug. 23-Sept. 22): You will find yourself worshiping at an unexpected shrine. Just remember that some things have no power except the power you give them. L I B RA (Sept. 23O ct. 23): Someone you admire is doing a very cool thing lately and will provide a way for you to be a part of it. Try big-picture thinking to get your mind off minor details that haven’t worked out.

C A P RI C ORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Hard work will take your mind off whatever is troubling you, especially if there’s a physical aspect to it. Plus, it has the extra benefit of tiring you out so you will sleep better. A Q UARIU S (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): You won’t be able to distill your feelings into one bottom line. It’s complicated. A lot of different answers might feel momentarily right, but the next moment brings a different so-called “right” answer. That’s why inaction is favored. P I SC E S (Feb. 19-March 20): The love and support you give comes in many different forms. Today it’s about time, attention and food. This is needed more than money. THAT SCRAMBLED WORD GAME by David L. Hoyt and Jeff Knurek History TOD AY Today is Thursday, Jan. 15, the 15th day of 2015. There are 350 days left in the year. Highlight in history On Jan. 15, 1865, during the closing months of the Civil War, the Second Battle of Fort Fisher near Wilmington, N.C., ended as Union forces captured the “Gibraltar of the South,” depriving the Confederates of their last major seaport. On this date 1777 – The people of New Connecticut declared independence. (The republic later became the state of Vermont.) 1919 – In Boston, a tank containing an estimated 2.3 million gallons of molasses burst, sending the dark syrup coursing through the city’s North End, killing 21 people. 1943 – Work was completed on the Pentagon, headquarters of the U.S. Department of War (now Defense). 1967 – The Green Bay Packers of the National Football League defeated the Kansas City Chiefs of the American Football League 35-10 in the first AFL-NFL World Championship Game, known retroactively as Super Bowl I. 1973 – President Richard Nixon announced the suspension of all U.S. offensive action in North Vietnam. 1993 – A historic disarmament ceremony ended in Paris with the last of 125 countries signing a treaty banning chemical weapons. 2009 – US Airways Capt. Chesley “Sully” Sullenberger ditched his Airbus 320 in the Hudson River after a flock of birds disabled both engines; all 155 people aboard survived. Thought for today “I refuse to accept the idea that the ‘is-ness’ of man’s present nature makes him morally incapable of reaching up for the ‘ought-ness’ that forever confronts him.” Martin Luther King Jr. (1929-1968) Y our HOROS C OPE: Holiday Mathis Page B6 | The News Herald | Thursday, January 15, 2015

The inaugural World Dog Awards, hosted by Lopez, will air tonight on The CW Network. Winners will be presented with golden fire hydrant statuettes. ‘Paw-parazzi’ take note: World Dog Awards tonight LOS ANGELES (AP) — Awards season is underway in Hollywood, but one show will roll out green turf instead of red carpet and celebrate such achievements as best mutt instead of best actor. At the inaugural World Dog Awards, hosted by comedian George Lopez, dogs will walk in on artificial grass and wag out with golden fire hydrant statuettes honoring the best in entertainment and social media. There are no long speeches or fashion critics at the show airing at 7 p.m. tonight on the CW Network. At this event, the podium is packed with dog treats, patches of grass allow pets to do their business and signs call for barking instead of applause. Plus, pooches lounge on couches and sniff out swag bags boasting pet food, collars and toys. The World Dog Awards are different than other shows, executive producer Robert Horowitz said. “You have seen Westminster, you have seen dogs honored for their service and to promote adoption, but not a show that focuses on how important they are in everyday life,” he said. Fans voted online for the winners of most categories before the show’s filming Saturday. They chose Most Pawpular Dog, for the most influential pooch on social media; Happiest Reunion, for the most inspiring videotaped reunion between a returning military member and a dog; and even Most Dog-Like Cat. In one of the most-heated contests, colleges’ competed for best team mascot. The contenders are Smokey the bluetick coonhound from the University of Tennessee; Jonathan the husky from the University of Connecticut; Hairy Dawg the bulldog from the University of Georgia; T-Bone the Irish setter from Pace University; and Bully the bulldog from Mississippi State.

He’s not about to let the sport’s fading popularity dissuade him from aspiring to continue his standout prep career at the collegiate level. Carlan, an 18-year-old senior at Arnold, has compiled a 29-4 record on the mat this season as he sets his sights on a return to the state tourna ment. Carlan’s trip to state last year ended in disappointment as he fell one victory shy of placing. “Majorly,” Carlan said when asked if that outcome served as fuel for this season. “It drives me insane. It’s one of those things where you wake up in the middle of the night thinking about it. It makes me push harder. It’s motivation.” Carlan, who wrestles at 132 pounds, pinned all five opponents at a tournament in Pembroke Pines, and he was named the tournament’s most outstanding wrestler at the Arnold’s Brock Carlan, an 18-year-old senior, has compiled a 29-4 record on the mat this season for the Marlins wrestling team.

Denver, Atlanta and Chicago still have open ings. On Wednesday, John Fox interviewed with Chi cago, two days after part ing ways with Denver. The 49ers said Tomsula will be formally introduced Thursday at a news con ference that comes after a more than two-week search that ended right in house. Tomsula replaces Jim Harbaugh, who parted ways with the 49ers on Dec. 28 in what the team called a “mutual decision.” Harbaugh was introduced as Michigan’s coach two days later following a suc cessful four-year stint during which the 49ers reached three straight NFC championship games and a Super Bowl. “After conducting a thorough coaching search, and meeting with a num ber of outstanding candi dates, Jim Tomsula clearly is the right man to lead this team,” CEO Jed York said in a statement. San Francisco went 8-8 this season and missed the playoffs. The Jets made it official with Bowles, also a top can didate for the Atlanta job, a day after hiring former Houston director of college scouting Mike Maccagnan as general manager.

Phillips-Nwankwo, a senior walk-on who is playing on an academic scholarship, scored a career-high seven points and sparked a decisive 16-3 run as the Panthers (12-5, 2-2 Atlantic Coast Conference) shut down the Semi noles in the second half. Chris Jones added 15 points for Pitt, which out rebounded Florida State (9-8, 1-3) 39-31 and held the Seminoles to just 32 percent shooting (10 of 31) in the second half. Freshman Phil Cofer scored a career-high 21 points for Florida State but the Seminoles went nearly nine minutes without a field goal in the second half as Pitt took control. Pitt has struggled to find any sort of consistency in the middle. Joseph Uchebo and Derrick Randall have been largely ineffective, forcing Young to play out of position at center and giving the Panthers serious matchup issues. Coach Jamie Dixon gave Phillips-Nwankwo — who had played all of five minutes this season — a shot look ing for a spark. He provided it and then some, sending a jolt through the Panthers that paid immediate dividends. With the game tied at 41 early in the second half, PhillipsNwankwo hit a layup and was fouled. He made the layup and followed it with a putback that kickstarted Pitt’s best stretch of basketball in weeks.

SPORT S Page C2 | The News Herald | Thursday, January 15, 2015 It was afternoon and we were fishing back toward Panama City after putting in a day on the head boat Red Fin 2 with Capt. A.R. Holly. It had been a soso day when Capt. Holly pulled back on the engines and spun around while yelling to get the buoy ready. I ran up to the bow waiting for the word to drop the buoy. When he figured we were on the spot he had passed over I threw the buoy. I ran into the wheelhouse to see what was on the fish finder. As he slowed down the paper machine went dark with fish, some almost to the top of the water and we were in a depth of more than 120 feet. When the bell rang everyone dropped down and before some of the fishermen could reach bottom they were loaded down with fish. Expecting to find red snapper we were surprised to see black grouper that looked as though they had been poured from the same mold of about 10 pounds. Not knowing what we had discovered, A.R. pulled out a chart to figure out what we were on. The only thing we could see on the horizon was the offshore tower. We left the buoy on the spot, expecting to return the next morning. Arriving back at the dock A.R. talked to some captains and the word was we had found the tugboat Leroy, a steel-hull tug that had an engine and sail for propulsion. The Leroy sank in rough weather in the 1930s or 1940s. The Leroy obviously had not been fished for a long time, as evidenced by all the fish that were on it. Back then you had to know what you were doing to return to the same spot you fished the previous day. Most of the time A.R. fished close to the beach. He generally didn’t slow down until he reached the inlet. The Phillips Inlet area was and still is one of the best natural bottom areas east of Destin. In the 1950s and 1960s boat captains used landmarks on the beach to help them return to a reef offshore. Get out of sight of land and most simply were lost. What this meant was fish that lived in water that was out of sight of land were relatively safe because fishermen had no way to return to the spot they had caught fish the previous day. That was when knowing how to range made the difference between a consistent fisherman and a lucky one. How do you range? You get on fish and throw the buoy. The next thing you do s look up and down the beach for something that looks a little different than any object around it. I usually carried a pen and paper and tried to draw what it was that was different from any other object close to it. Back then there were no condos and very few houses west of the pass at Phillips Inlet. One place we called the “old house” had a screen on the front porch that was different from any other house on the beach. Behind this house was a very large pine tree. After lining this tree with this house I looked to the east and lined the water tank at Camp Helen with another house that just happened to be painted yellow and stood out from the others in the area. As it worked out, the farther apart these ranges were from each other the more accurate your range was. We had no fathometers, so after throwing a buoy we would circle and watch for triggerfish which would come to the surface by the hundreds. When you saw these you knew you were in the money. If you went around and collected everyone’s GPS I doubt that 100 pounds of snapper would be caught in a week. Like I said, you had to know what you were doing back then to catch fish. Today if you want to fish the Leroy all you have to do to find it is be able to read a GPS. Today the Leroy will have five or six boats a day fishing the area. OUTDOORS REPORT Outdoor Life Scott Lindsey Outdoor Writer captscottlindsey @outlook. com There was a time you had to know how to range Andrews Invitational in Gulf Breeze last weekend. Carlan knows that, while those accolades are praiseworthy, col lege programs are looking for wrestlers capable of winning hardware at state tournaments. “It’s my final year, and college is around the corner,” Carlan said. “I have to make an impression by placing at state — if not first, at least place at state.” Wrestling largely has been abandoned at the college level. The number of NCAA schools with a wrestling program dropped from 374 in 1979 to 91 by 2010. That number stood at 72 last year. “Looking at college, it’s hard to find the right fit because all the southern col leges don’t have wrestling,” Carlan said. “I’ll have to go out of state, which means more fees (and higher tuition costs).” Carlan, who began his prep career wrestling at 106 pounds, credited three teammates — Dylan Tuttle, Richie McClanahan and Paul Patterson — with assisting his development as his partners on the mat in practice. He added that coach Jeff Skipper “is really good and looks out for all of his wrestlers.” Carlan said he would “love to be at Northern Illinois” next fall and intends to study graphic design in college, wherever he ends up. “I’m ready,” he said. “It’s next chapter of my life. It’s a new adventure.” CARLAN from page C1 BROCK C ARLAN sixth straight defensive-focused head coach and fifth since Johnson took over in 2000, following Bill Parcells, Al Groh, Herm Edwards, Eric Mangini and Ryan. “It’s an honor and privilege to coach the Jets,” Bowles said in a statement. “I can’t help but be hum bled by the chance to coach this team. I am going to do everything I can to build a consistent winner.” Bowles from Elizabeth, New Jer sey, was the Jets’ defensive backs coach under Groh in 2000 season. He beat out five other candidates who interviewed, including Seattle defen sive coordinator Dan Quinn and for mer Buffalo coach Doug Marrone. A person with knowledge of the Del Rio’s hiring said a deal was agreed to Wednesday, not long after the team told interim coach Tony Sparano he would not get the job. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because an announcement had not been made. Del Rio, a former NFL linebacker, was the head coach in Jacksonville for nine seasons before spending the past three as Denver’s defensive coordinator. Sparano was elevated from offen sive line coach during the season to replace the fired Dennis Allen. Oak land went 3-9 under Sparano after los ing the first four games under Allen. Ryan ended up in Buffalo on Mon day and was as brash and bold as ever Wednesday at his first news conference. “Is this thing on?” Ryan said, tap ping the microphone. “Because it’s getting ready to be on.” Outlining his objectives, Ryan said the job is his last chance to prove himself. He vowed to build the Bills into “a bully” and said he has an addi tional chip on his shoulder after being fired by the Jets. “Yes, it’s personal,” he said, about being fired. “It’s embarrassing.” Marrone shocked the Bills by step ping down Dec. 31. The second-year coach opted out of his contract after Terry and Kim Pegula purchased the franchise in October. Ryan made a veiled reference to Marrone’s depar ture by saying: “This football team deserves a loyal coach.” Bowles becomes the fifth black head coach currently in the NFL, joining Pittsburgh’s Mike Tomlin, Cincinnati’s Marvin Lewis, Tampa Bay’s Lovie Smith and Detroit’s Jim Caldwell. A person with knowledge of the situation told The Associated Press that former Dallas and Buffalo head coach Chan Gailey will be Bowles’ offensive coordinator. Gailey was out of football the last two seasons after being fired as the Bills’ coach after the 2012 season. Bears interview Fox for coaching job LAKE FOREST, Ill. — John Fox inter viewed for the Chicago Bears’ coaching job Wednesday, two days after parting ways with the Denver Broncos. Fox is at least the sixth candidate to inter view for the job. He’s widely seen as a strong possibility given his record and his ties to consultant Ernie Accorsi and new general manager Ryan Pace. Fox was the defensive coordinator for the New York Giants from 1997 to 2001 when Accorsi was the GM. Saints coach Sean Pay ton was the offensive coordinator for part of that time, and he is tight with Pace, who was hired out of New Orleans’ front office. Fox won the AFC West all four of his years in Denver, but each of those seasons ended in ugly losses, including a 24-13 upset by India napolis this year. He was 49-22 with the Bron cos, including the playoffs, following a 78-74 record in nine years with Carolina, counting the postseason. He led the Panthers to a Super Bowl with Jake Delhomme at quarterback and got back there last year with Peyton Manning. The Broncos got blown out 43-8 by Seattle, con vincing general manager John Elway to spend $60 million in guarantees on new defensive players so his quarterback shouldn’t have to carry the load by himself. COACHES from page C1 Playoff players face time crunch for NFL PHOENIX (AP) — The players who earned a chance to play in the inaugural College Football Playoff had more than a month to prepare for the biggest games of their lives. Once the national championship game was over, the elite players had a much shorter window to make the biggest decision of their lives. Try three days. The adrenaline of Monday night’s national title game still flowing, top players like Ohio State’s Cardale Jones have until today’s deadline to gather themselves and try to make a rational decision about whether to declare for the NFL draft or stay in school. That’s not a lot of time for what will likely be a life-alter ing decision — no matter how it turns out. “To me, it could be like one of those days like signing day: you can declare by that date, but you don’t have to,” Arizona coach Rich Rodriguez said. “If you just played recently, why not wait another two weeks? It’s a big decision and the kids should be able to gather as much information as possible.” The NFL draft isn’t until April 30-May 2, but the early date for declaring was put in place to prevent agents from having more time to recruit players for the draft and so college coaches can assess their rosters before signing recruiting classes. The first day high school players can sign a national letter of intent is Feb. 4 and the extra time gives the college coaches a chance to secure replacements for the top players who leave for the NFL. Many of the top college players have already declared for the draft, including Heisman Trophy winner Marcus Mariota of Oregon, Flor ida State quarterback Jameis Winston, Washington line backer Shaq Thompson and Arizona State receiver Jaelen Strong. Mariota joined that list — and teammate Arik Armstead — when he declared for the draft on Wednesday. Jones, despite leading the Buckeyes to a national title in his third career start, said he doesn’t feel ready for the NFL, though he still has another day before the deadline to make a final decision. Regardless of Jones’ decision, his coach believes he should have more time to make it. “If we’re in that situation, we would like to have more space, more time,” coach Urban Meyer said before the Buckeyes beat Oregon 42-20 in the national title game. “I think now that there’s a playoff, they should readdress that and move it back a little bit.” The NFL made several changes in the process last year, altering the evaluation system and limiting the number of players who can submit paperwork to the league’s draft advisory board. In previous years, the committee comprised of current general managers, college scouting directors and other front office personnel would give players a grade based on which of the draft’s seven rounds they might be taken in. Now, a prospect is only told if he has a firstor secondround grade. The NFL also has limited the number of players who can submit paperwork to five from each school, though excep tions can be made. FSU’s Goldman to enter NFL Draft TALLAHASSEE — Florida State defensive tackle Eddie Goldman will forgo his senior season and enter the 2015 NFL Draft. The school made the announcement Wednesday. The 6-foot-4, 320-pounder from Washington, D.C., was a full-time starter the last two years and named Associated Press third-team All American in 2014. He finished the season with 35 tackles, eight tackles for loss and a team-high four sacks. Coach Jimbo Fisher said in a statement that “Eddie was a tremen dous leader, student-athlete and, most importantly, a tremendous person for FSU.” Goldman is expected to be an early draft pick because of his athleti cism at the position. The Seminoles went 39-3, won the 2013 national championship and three ACC titles during his career. They advanced to the inaugural College Football Playoff semifinal this season, losing to Oregon.

Thursday, January 15, 2015 | The News Herald | Page C3 By DUSTIN KENT 747-5065 | @PCNHDustinKent dkent@pcnh.clom WEWAHITCHKA — It was a festive atmosphere at Wewahitchka High School on Tuesday night as the school honored six former state championship teams with a banner-hanging cer emony before its varsity basketball game against Cottondale. The first three champi ons in school history were recognized: the 1952, 1953, and 1954 boys basketball teams coached by William Linton. Also getting banners in their honor were 1995 boys cross country team and the 2007 and 2008 girls softball teams. The event was the brainchild of Wewahitchka principal Jay Bidwell, who played basketball for the Gators in junior high and high school. He said he always wanted to find a special way to honor the school’s championship squads. “I remember being in the seventh grade and see ing those (boys basketball state championship) tro phies in the trophy case,” Bidwell said. “I always said that if the opportunity ever arises that I’m going to get some banners up in that gym.” Billy Tillman, former member of two of those boys basketball title teams and the father of current Gators football coach Loren Tillman, said he was honored to be a part of the event. “I’m proud to be a Wewa Gator,” he said, followed by enthusiastic applause from the crowd of Wewa fans in attendance. “The good Lord blessed me on two teams that won the cham pionship and blessed me to live long enough to see the recognition for it 60 years later.” Tillman said that his greatest memory from his years as a Wewa athlete — in addition to winning the titles — was the friendships he had with his teammates, as well as the relationship he had with his coach. “(Linton) was a math teacher and a great coach and one of the greatest men you could ever want to have in your community,” Till man said. “He was the kind of man you would want to have around young kids.” Don Lanier, who played on the ’54 team, echoed Tillman’s comments about the bond between the play ers on those teams. “It brings back a lot of old memories and makes you think of all the boys you played with,” Lanier said. “We had some good players and the ceremony is a reflection of all the love we had for playing with each other.” Former Wewa softball coach Charles Fortner, who led the 2007 Lady Gators to Class 2A state title, intro duced the softball cham pionship teams and said he was proud to see their achievements recognized. “It was something we worked hard at for years before we did it and all the hard work paid off,” Fortner said. “To get banners hung for it is really special.” Bidwell was the coach of the boys cross country team that won state in 1995, only four years after the start of the program. He said what meant the most to him Tuesday is what the banners rep resent for the past, pres ent, and future athletes at Wewahitchka. “I’ve been with this school system for a long time. This school means a lot to me,” Bidwell said. “When I grew up, I looked up to (the former state champions) because they had done something to be proud of. I want the kids here now to have some thing to look up to and believe in. “I want them to look at those banners and say that a Wewa kid can do anything.” Following the ceremony, some of the Gators did just that as Parker Davis scored a last-second basket in a 56-55 win over Cottondale in boys basketball.

Pacquiao agrees to fight Mayweather LAS VEGAS — Manny Pacquiao flew to Los Angeles on Wednesday, preparing for a meeting with contestants of the Miss Universe pageant. Whether he has an even bigger date on May 2 seems entirely up to Floyd Mayweather Jr. Promoter Bob Arum said Pacquiao has agreed to all terms for what would be boxing’s richest fight ever, a bout with Mayweather that fans have been demanding for five years. Arum said negotiations with Mayweather’s representatives over the past few weeks resulted in agreements on everything from the date and site of the fight (MGM Grand in Las Vegas) to purse split (reportedly 60-40 in Mayweather’s favor) to the type of gloves the boxers will wear. But Mayweather has yet to personally agree to the fight. Djokovic, Serena top seeds at Aussie Open MELBOURNE, Australia — Two-time champion Victoria Azarenka has missed out on a seeding at the Australian Open after falling in the rankings in the first weeks of 2015. No. 1 Serena Williams and No. 2 Maria Sharapova will be on opposite sides of the draw after their world rankings were reflected in the seedings for the first major of the year. Former No. 1 Azarenka, who won here in 2012 and 2013 and reached two Grand Slam quarterfinals in 2014 during an injury-interrupted year, dropped from a No. 32 year-end ranking to No. 41 this week. The top 32 players are seeded at majors, usually based on rankings. Nos. 1-3 Novak Djokovic, Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal are all seeded ahead of defending men’s champion Stan Wawrinka, who is seeded No. 4. Patterson wins Bryant Award HOUSTON — TCU coach Gary Patterson was rewarded for helping the Horned Frogs to an impressive turnaround this season by winning the Paul “Bear” Bryant College Coach of the Year on Wednesday night. Patterson led the Horned Frogs to a 12-1 record a year after they went 4-8. “How can you not be honored by being mentioned in the same (sentence) as Bear Bryant,” Patterson said. Some were unhappy that the Horned Frogs were left out of the first College Football Playoff, but Patterson said he chose not to give into the negativity. “There’s never going to be a perfect system,” he said. “I knew that if I didn’t handle it right then my team wouldn’t play well and our fans wouldn’t handle it right. We just needed someone to be on the positive side. We just need to move forward.” SPOR TS Briefs On The AIR Girls soccer: District 2-3A tournament at Arnold Girls basketball: Mosley at Bay 7 p.m. Boys basketball: Bozeman at Vernon 7 p.m. Area EVENTS In The BLEACHERS

SPORT S Thursday, January 15, 2015 | The News Herald | Page C5 second-half deficit to send the game into OT, but Lady Raiders sophomore guard Simone Westbrook scored eight of her 20 points in the extra session and assisted on the go-ahead basket. With the win, NWF State improved to 2-1 in the con ference and 17-1 overall, while Gulf Coast dropped to 0-3 and 13-5 overall. It was another tough defeat for the Lady Commo dores, who are 0-3 by virtue of losing to three of the top 10-ranked teams in the nation in No. 1 Chipola, No. 10 Tallahassee and now No. 5 NWF State. Gulf Coast coach Roonie Scovel said her team just isn’t yet able to get over the hump against teams of that caliber. “We have to learn how to win. We just don’t have that winning mentality yet, and it’s getting pretty late in the year to get it,” she said. “We don’t have the confidence to make the plays to win these games and that’s some thing we’ve got to develop. But that’s on the coach. It’s my job to give them that confidence.” Tia Sanders led the Lady Raiders with 25 points, fol lowed by Daniela Wallen’s 22 and Westbrook’s 20. It was Wallen’s bucket with 36 seconds left in over time off of a nice drive and dish by Westbrook that put NWF State up for good 93-92, with Chelsey Gibson shooting an air ball from the right baseline that could have tied the game in the closing seconds. Gibson finished with 19 points, with Kristina King leading the way with 24 points, and Tianah Alvarado finishing with 17 — all in the second half. It was Alvarado’s sec ond-half flurry that got the Lady Commodores back into the game, sparking an 11-2 run with seven straight points to bring GC to within one at 77-76 after a three with 5:49 left in regulation. The Lady Raiders answered with a pair of buckets by Wallen and another by Alliyah Smith to go up 83-77, but Alvarado came right back with a strong drive and finish, fol lowed by a short jumper by Bri Williams and a bucket inside by King to it 83-83 with 1:07 left. After getting the ball back on a jump ball, Gulf Coast took the lead on a pull-up jumper by Alvarado with 22 seconds left. Westbrook’s attempt to tie it up missed, but Tyshara Fleming’s tip-in found its way in with a second left to send the game into OT. “We needed to win it in regulation,” Scovel said. “That rebound we gave up at the end killed us. We played hard, but we made mistakes at the end that cost us a chance to win.” In the overtime, West brook set the tone early with a three in opening minute and shortly after added a pretty driving finish off glass to put the Lady Raiders up 91-85. But the Lady Commo dores again fought back, getting consecutive baskets by King and later two free throws by Williams to take a 92-91 lead with 1:04 to play. NWF State answered with Westbrook getting into the lane and drawing the defense before finding Wallen underneath for a layup to put her team up for good. Lady Raiders coach Tamela McCorvey said her game plan in overtime was simple: Get the ball to the reigning Panhandle Con ference Player of the Year and let her bring the game home. “She’s our best player and we wanted to put the ball in her hands,” she said. “She went out there and made some big plays down the stretch to help us win.” Gulf Coast had one last chance to tie in the clos ing seconds when Williams found Gibson for a clean look on the right baseline, but the shot was far too strong and Westbrook hit two more free throws to effectively end the game. The Lady Commo dores will next go on the road Saturday to face Pen sacola State, while NWF State returns home to host Chipola on Saturday.

NFL BRIEFS Packers’ R odgers limited in practice GREEN BAY, Wis. — While he appreciates suggestions from Packers fans of remedies for his sore left calf, Aaron Rodgers is not necessarily going to listen to the advice. Whatever Rodgers is doing appears to be working. The quarterback took limited snaps on Wednesday, the first day of practice for Green Bay ahead of Sunday’s NFC title game against the Seattle Seahawks. It is an improvement from last week, when Rodgers missed the first day of practice preparing for the Dallas Cowboys. “I mean, he’s doing everything he can. I do know that,” coach Mike McCarthy said. “We did a little bit more today than we did this time last week. I don’t really know if that’s an indicator. We’re dealing with it.” Rodgers is sticking to the team’s prescribed rehab plan, along with an occasional dose of acupuncture, and that’s it. “I know people have the best intentions when they’re sending stuff in,” Rodgers said. “You know they want me to get back on the field. This time of the year when there’s an injury, there (are) a lot of experts out there.” Rodgers doesn’t have the full mobility that allows him to extend plays outside the pocket, one of his trademark strengths. The right arm is just fine though. The 13-yard touchdown pass thrown like a fastball to Richard Rodgers in last week’s 26-21 win over Dallas is proof. “I don’t think so,” Rodgers said when asked if he had to overcompensate with accuracy to make up for his limited mobility. “It’s been pretty good for a number of years. Just limited mobility makes you have to throw from the pocket a little bit more.” Peyton Manning is B art S tarr Award winner PHOENIX — Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning is the winner of the 2015 Bart Starr Award, given annually to a player who exemplified leadership and character on and off the field. Manning will receive the award at the Athletes In Action Super Bowl Breakfast in Phoenix on Jan. 30. Manning and his wife, Ashley, have helped at-risk youth in Colorado, Indiana, Louisiana and Tennessee through the PeyBack Foundation since 1999. Other causes Manning is involved with include St. Vincent’s Children’s Hospital in Indianapolis, the American Red Cross, the Pat Summitt Foundation and the Peyton Manning Scholarship program at Tennessee. Saints tight end Benjamin Watson and Raiders defensive end Justin Tuck also were finalists for the honor that recognizes character and community contributions. Vikings to let process unfold with Peterson EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. — Minnesota Vikings general manager Rick Spielman spoke glowingly and definitively about Adrian Peterson’s character, his contributions to the team and his ability to return from almost a full season off to be an impact player again. The only thing Spielman declined to say with certainty was whether Peterson will be back with the Vikings next season. “I don’t know if there’s a team in the NFL that wouldn’t want Adrian Peterson on their football team,” Spielman said on Wednesday in his first public comments about Peterson since the star running back was suspended by the NFL for striking his 4-year-old son with a wooden switch. “If you can name me one ... and I don’t want to speak for other teams ... but I know that he’s a pretty good football player.” Peterson’s future with the team that drafted him in 2007 has been in question since he pleaded no contest to misdemeanor reckless assault for disciplining his son. Jets’ Richardson replacement for Pro Bowl NEW YORK — New York Jets defensive tackle Sheldon Richardson is replacing injured Tampa Bay Buccaneers defensive tackle Gerald McCoy in the Pro Bowl. The Jets announced Wednesday that Richardson, who was originally selected as an alternate, will play in the game in Glendale, Ariz., on Jan. 25 — a week before the Super Bowl is played there. Richardson joins center Nick Mangold as Jets players in the Pro Bowl this year. Grant, Vasturia help No. 12 Notre Dame nip Georgia Tech L ADY COMMODORES from page C1 ATLANTA (AP) — Jerian Grant scored 12 points, Steve Vasturia added 11 points and No. 12 Notre Dame beat Georgia Tech 62-59 on Wednesday night. Despite the absence of starting forward Zach Auguste, the Fight ing Irish (16-2, 4-1 Atlantic Coast Conference) secured their best start to a season since 1978-79. Pat Connaughton, V.J. Beachem and Bonzie Colson each finished with 10 points, and Deme trius Jackson had nine for Notre Dame, which has won 12 of 13. Irish coach Mike Brey said Auguste, who has averaged 14.3 points and 6.4 rebounds, missed the game because of an academic matter, but Brey would not specu late on a timetable for his return. Demarco Cox scored 17 points and Chris Bolden added 13 for Georgia Tech. The Yellow Jackets (9-7, 0-4 ACC) haven’t lost a league game by more than seven points this season. Marcus Georges-Hunt, who led the Jackets with a 13.3 scor ing average, went 0 for 6 and was without a field goal for the first time in his three-year career. He finished with six points. No. 13 Wichita State 67, Southern Illinois 55 WICHITA, Kan. — Darius Carter scored a career-high 25 points on 11-of15 shooting, leading No. 13 Wichita State past Southern Illinois. Ron Baker had 11 points and Tekele Cotton added 10 as the Shockers (15-2, 5-0 Missouri Valley) won their 23rd straight conference game.

Another jumper by Bell extended the Raiders’ edge back to nine at 79-70, but the Commodores reeled off eight in a row, with an offensive rebound and score by Waters cutting it to one with 1:47 remaining. Bell again had the answer for the Raiders with a straightaway three on the ensuing possession, but the Commodores came right back with a three of their own from Ruben Monroe. It was an 84-83 Raiders lead with under 20 seconds to play when Williams came up with the biggest rebound of the night, cleaning up a miss by Austin and putting it back in with 11.8 seconds to play. That forced the Commodores to go for three on their last possession and Elliott Cole’s attempt from the left corner was short. The Raiders rebounded and were fouled with 0.9 seconds left. “It was tough because we battled and battled to cut it to one and then giving up that offensive rebound at the end forced us to take a very difficult shot at the end,” Gulf Coast coach Jay Powell said. McGowens and Waters led the Commodores with 22 points each, with Wade and Copeland adding 12 each. Gulf Coast dropped to 14-6 overall and 1-2 in the conference.
