Pedro Reyes, 48, was arrested in November 2013 on charges of sexual misconduct and admitted he had sex with at least two female inmates. Reyes, a detention corporal employed by the jail since 2008, was fired. Prosecutors months later upgraded charges against him to sexual battery. However, Reyes pleaded no contest Thursday to one count of sexual misconduct between and inmate and detention employee and was sentenced to probation.

With several changes on the books this year — the most significant being an earlier closing time for clubs and bars — the TDC moved to provide up to $100,000 to educate breakers about the do’s and don’ts of the destination through social media and other outlets. Although the TDC does promote a “Spring Break Responsibly” campaign on its website, board members were concerned the agency was not sufficiently getting the word out about the new rules. “We’ve got to get the message to them before they arrive,” board member Andy Phillips said. “I think we are failing in our responsibilities if we don’t get this message out before they arrive.” Newly elected Chairman Mike Bennett agreed the TDC was falling flat. “ ‘Spring Break Responsibly,’ I think that message needs to be out there,” Bennett said. “We need to encourage good behavior.” Phillips initially proposed spending $50,000 for a page on Collegiate Marketing’s popular website to outline the rules, but it was voted down by the board. While the TDC sponsored Collegiate Marketing’s cooperative Spring Break campaign in years’ past, the board chose to slash all funds for promoting the event this year.

Capt. Scott Fitzgerald said he wouldn’t have believed it happened if he wasn’t there to tape the incident. Fitzgerald, captain of MadFish Charters, was fishing for amberjack Monday about 8 miles offshore when the 10-foot shark attacked the boat’s electric trolling motor. No one was injured, but everyone aboard was startled when they realized they were in the clutches of an aggressive great white. “It came up, hit it really hard and knocked the boat 2 feet to its side,” Fitzgerald said. “It had the motor in its mouth and was shaking the boat from side to side, so I ran to the front and pulled the motor out of its mouth.” Fitzgerald said after he pried the motor ON THE WEB Find a link to the video at .

Page A2 | The News Herald | Friday, January 23, 2015 Tsarnaev lawyers ask again for venue change AP New York Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver is surrounded by reporters as he leaves Federal court Thursday in New York. Silver, who has been one of the most powerful men in Albany for more than two decades, was arrested Thursday on public corruption charges. BOSTON (AP) — Lawyers for Boston Marathon bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev are making a third push to move his trial out side Massachusetts, citing a large number of prospective jurors who already believe he’s guilty and the personal connections many have to the attack. Tsarnaev’s lawyers renewed their bid for a change of venue on Thurs day, the same day court officials announced that opening statements will not be heard as expected on Mon day because jury selection is taking longer than anticipated. The defense cited the attitudes of prospective jurors in the case, saying of the 1,373 prospective jurors who filled out questionnaires, 68 percent already believe Tsarnaev is guilty and 69 percent have a self-identi fied “connection” or expressed alle giance to the people, places and/or events in the case. “Stronger support for a finding of presumed prejudice in Boston is difficult to imagine, and the exist ing record precludes a fair trial in Boston,” Tsarnaev’s lawyers wrote in their motion. A spokeswoman for U.S. Attorney Carmen Ortiz declined to comment on the defense request. U.S. District Judge George O’Toole Jr. rejected two earlier requests to move the trial, saying he believes a fair and impartial jury can be chosen in Massachusetts. Tsarnaev’s lawyers urged the judge to stop individual questioning of jurors immediately, order the trial moved and hold a hearing to deter mine where it should be held. The judge did not immediately rule on the request and continued question ing prospective jurors. The defense included excerpts of juror questionnaires in its motion. “Why waste time on this guy you know he is guilty,” one prospective juror wrote. Another person, when asked if there is anything the court should know, wrote, “We all know he’s guilty so quit wasting every body’s time with a jury and string him up.” Another wrote, “For this case I think a public execution would be appropriate, preferable by bomb at the finish line of the marathon.” Another prospective juror men tioned close friends who work in the emergency room at Massachusetts General Hospital, which treated many of the people injured in the bombings. “My friends still have nightmares of that day!” the poten tial juror wrote. The defense also listed pro spective jurors and their close connections to the marathon or the bombing. Among them: an ER doctor who personally treated Tsar naev and his brother after they were apprehended. O’Toole had originally said he hoped to question 40 prospective jurors each day, but he only ques tioned a total of 61 people over four days. The process has been slowed as the judge has probed prospective jurors at length about whether they have already formed on opinion on Tsarnaev’s guilt and about their feel ings on the death penalty. Only jurors who express a will ingness to consider both execution or life in prison as a punishment can be seated on the jury. Powerful New York politician arrested on bribery charges NEW YORK (AP) — New York Assembly Speaker Sheldon Sil ver, who bent governors to his will for more than 20 years as one of the state’s most powerful and canny poli ticians, was arrested Thursday on charges of taking millions in payoffs and kickbacks. The 70-year-old Democrat was arrested by the FBI on federal con spiracy and bribery charges that carry up to 100 years in prison and could cost him his political seat. He was released on $200,000 bail. U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara said Silver — a lawyer by training — lined up jobs at two firms and then accepted large sums of money in exchange for using his “titanic” power to do political favors. A lot of the money was disguised as “referral fees,” Bharara said. “I’m confident that after a full hear ing and due process I’ll be vindicated on the charges,” said Silver, who seemed unfazed in court, even paus ing on his way out to sign a sketch artist’s rendering of the scene. He did not enter a plea. The arrest sent shock waves through New York’s Capitol and came just a day after Silver shared the stage with Gov. Andrew Cuomo during his State of the State address. The gover nor had no immediate comment. Silver is one of Albany’s most sto ried political figures, a consummate backroom operator with the power to single-handedly decide the fate of legislation. Along with the Senate majority leader and the governor, he plays a major role in creating state budgets, laws and policies in a system long criticized in Albany as “three men in a room.” He controls, for example, which lawmakers sit on which committees and decides whether a bill gets a vote. In a measure of his clout, he helped persuade Cuomo last spring to disband a state anti-corruption commission that was investigating Silver’s financial deal ings and those of his colleagues. Silver had fought the commission’s subpoe nas and refused to provide information about his outside legal work. Despite his outsized influence, he is pretty much an unknown outside New York State. Even in Albany, he is one of the most private and least-understood figures, sometimes called “the Sphinx.” Silver’s outside income has long been a subject of discussion and controversy. But Bharara said New Yorkers could stop wondering: Silver made more than $6 million in outside income since 2002 from two law firms, much of it illegal. “Speaker Silver never did any legal work,” Bharara said. “He simply sat back and collected millions of dollars by cashing in on his public office and political influence.” N ATI ON Briefs The Associated Press MANCHESTER, N.H. Cops: Twins, 9, left mostly alone for months Twin 9-year-old boys were left mostly alone in their New Hampshire apartment for four months after their parents took three siblings to Nigeria and left an uncle to care for them, authorities said Thursday. Manchester police said the uncle, 25-year-old Giobari Atura, told them he would stop by every couple of days to drop off food, but when police got involved in November, they found no edible food in the refrigerator and only ramen noodles in a cabinet. Atura was charged in December with one count of endangering the welfare of a child, a misdemeanor. He was freed on $500 bail. Atura’s older brother, Jerusalem Monday, left for Nigeria with his wife and three of their children in July, intending to return in August. They told police they were delayed by illness and passport problems. CENTENNIAL, Colo. More jurors dismissed from shooting case A judge released about 60 people from jury selection in the Colorado theater shooting trial Thursday as the long, difficult task of finding people to determine the fate of gunman James Holmes entered its third day. An unprecedented 9,000 possible jurors were initially summoned in the case, and it’s likely to take months to whittle that number down to 12 jurors and 12 alternates. District Attorney George Brauchler urged Judge Carlos Samour not to reveal why the judge released 48 jurors Thursday who had already filled out a questionnaire as part of the screening process. Brauchler warned against providing a “roadmap” that other people could use to get out of jury service. Samour also released at least 11 other jurors, including a woman who feared the lengthy trial would aggravate her panic attacks. Samour has released at least 70 potential jurors to date. The jury will determine if Holmes was sane during the 2012 attack that killed 12 people and injured 70 others. Prosecutors are seeking the death penalty. Holmes’ attorneys have acknowledged he was the gunman but argue he was mentally ill. LOS ANGELES Beautician to stars cleared of murder plot A skin-care specialist to the stars was acquitted Thursday of charges that she plotted to murder a rival beautician she mistakenly blamed for stalking her. Dawn Melody DaLuise, 56, was cleared in Los Angeles County Superior Court after about an hour of deliberations by jurors in the bizarre case that included allegations that a former NFL lineman was hired to knock off the competitor. “Obviously, we’re ecstatic about getting not guilty on both counts,” defense lawyer Jamon Hicks said. “We’re just hoping to help her rebuild her reputation, rebuild her business and rebuild her life.” Hicks said the former Frederick’s of Hollywood model was merely venting when she said she hated rival Gabriel Suarez, the owner of Smooth Cheeks salon.

NATIO N & WORLD Friday, January 23, 2015 | The News Herald | Page A3 When Reyes was arrested, inves tigators said they were looking into whether he had sex with any other inmates. According to investigators’ reports, he admitted to having sex with at least two other women, one of whom denied it. Officers were unable to contact the other. A fourth woman told investigators she had consensual sex with Reyes. An investigative report released in February indicated that one victim felt forced to have sex with Reyes because he was in a position of authority over her. Reyes was not accused of using physical force. The victim told investigators she felt threatened by Reyes, but she came forward after hearing that he had been having sex with other inmates. She said Reyes had sexual con tact with her on three occasions in a closet in the laundry at the jail. She told investigators that on one occa sion, she spit semen onto the shirt she was wearing so she would have DNA evidence against him. Investigators took custody of the shirt and submitted it to the Florida Department of Law Enforcement for DNA analysis. Reyes’ DNA matched the DNA on the shirt, according to a lab report included in the investiga tive report. RIYADH, Saudi Arabia (AP) — Saudi Arabia’s King Abdul lah, the powerful U.S. ally who joined Washington’s fight against al-Qaida and sought to modernize the ultraconser vative Muslim kingdom with incremental but significant reforms, including nudging open greater opportunities for women, has died, accord ing to Saudi state TV. He was 90. Abdullah’s death was announced on Saudi state TV by a presenter who said the king died at 1 a.m. on Friday. His successor was announced as 79-year-old half-brother, Prince Salman, a Royal Court statement carried on the Saudi Press Agency said. Salman was Abdullah’s crown prince and had recently taken on some of the ailing king’s responsibilities. The 69 year-old Prince Muqrin, a former head of intelligence in Saudi Arabia and half-brother to both Salman and Abdullah, was announced as the king dom’s crown prince. More than his guarded pre decessors, Abdullah — who ascended to the throne in 2005 — assertively threw his oilrich nation’s weight behind trying to shape the Middle East. His priority was to counter the influence of rival, mainly Shiite Iran wherever it tried to make advances. He and fellow Sunni Arab mon archs also staunchly opposed the Middle East’s wave of prodemocracy uprisings, seeing them as a threat to stability and their own rule. Regionally, perhaps Abdul lah’s biggest priority was to confront Iran, the Shiite pow erhouse across the Gulf. He backed Sunni Muslim factions against Tehran’s allies in sev eral countries, where colliding ambitions stoked proxy con flicts around the region that enflamed Sunni-Shiite hatreds — most horrifically in Syria’s civil war, where the two coun tries backed opposing sides. Those conflicts in turn hiked Sunni militancy that returned to threaten Saudi Arabia. Abdullah was selected as crown prince in 1982 on the day his half-brother Fahd ascended to the throne. He became de facto ruler in 1995 when a stroke incapaci tated Fahd. Abdullah was believed to have long rankled at the closeness of the alli ance with the United States, and as regent he pressed Washington to withdraw the troops it had deployed in the kingdom since the 1990 Iraqi invasion of Kuwait. The U.S. finally did so in 2003.

OFFICER from Page A1 additional funding for “spe cial event-style security” during Spring Break. At Thursday’s meeting, the TDC also committed to provide $300,000 to split between the Panama City Beach Police Department and Bay County Sheriff’s Office for additional secu rity during Spring Break’s busiest weeks. That is a 50 percent increase from last year. “The special event-style security is not security for private enterprise hav ing special events on the beach,” TDC Director Dan Rowe said. “It is taking it in the totality of the activity on the beach and providing that extra (law enforcement) presence whether or not a concert is happening.” Funding for the additional security will come from a $3.9 million pot compiled from excess Tourist Devel opment Tax revenue and other funds recognized in a recent audit. The TDC moved to chan nel $150,000 from that pot toward additional beach main tenance efforts, including more frequent beach groom ings and trash pickup during the busiest months for visita tion, with a special emphasis on holiday weekends. In other business Thurs day, the board: Elected a slate of new officers. Mike Bennett will serve as the new board chair man, taking the reins from Buddy Wilkes. Phillip Griffiths was elected vice chairman and Yonnie Patronis will serve as treasurer. Approved a 5 percent salary increase for TDC Director Dan Rowe to bring his salary to $187,425. Reported a 4.46 per cent increase in Tourist Development Tax, or bed tax, collections in November. Collections for the month totaled $367,917. So far this fiscal year, which began in October, the TDC has seen a 17.5 percent increase. Mexico Beach collected $13,497 in bed tax revenues in November, a 19.12 percent increase from last year.

The Bay County Tourist Development Council is working on ways to educate this year’s spring breakers about new rules. SHARK from Page A1 out, he and his crew of a couple customers and his girlfriend drifted for a moment before he dropped the motor back in the water. The shark had begun to aggressively circle the boat when he got his phone out to catch video of the incident, he said. The shark returned and attacked the motor two more times before Fitzgerald left the area. The shark obviously was targeting the motor, Fitzgerald said. “They’re a real fan of electri cal current, so I figure that’s what brought it up to the boat,” Fitzgerald said. “It was obvi ously attacking the motor.” To catch prey and find mates, sharks use small pores on the tips of their snouts to detect living animals’ electrical fields — sometimes called the sharks’ sixth sense. “Electroreception” is used to navigate the murky depths where sight and sound are scarce. The trolling motor was the only part of the boat to sustain any damage from the attack. Fitzgerald is no stranger to catching bull sharks or lemon sharks in the Gulf. However, for a captain who has been diving and fishing off the coast of Pan ama City Beach for more than six years, sighting a great white still would be hard to believe if he didn’t have video to remem ber it by. “If someone told me that happened to them, I would have called them a liar,” Fitzgerald said. A RARE MOMENT The run-in with Jaws is very rare in Northwest Florida. In June, the Northwest Florida Daily News asked George Burgess, director of shark research at the Florida Museum of Natural History, whether a great white that was being tracked in the central Gulf could make its way to Northwest Florida. He said the chances were “pretty low,” noting that the shark likely was dining on porpoises and sea turtles out at sea. “If we had seal colonies they’d be here all the time,” Burgess said. COURTESY S C O TT FIT ZGERALD | Special to The News Herald Capt. Scott Fitzgerald encountered this shark, seen in a screen grab from video, while fishing about 8 miles off the coast. and works in the Nel son Administrative Building on Balboa Avenue. She said she is not in it for the money. “It’s all about our students,” she said. Bay District School Board Chairman Steve Moss said support employees are the glue that holds the district together. And while they often are overlooked, they serve a critical role. According to Moss, part of ongoing renova tion at the Nelson Build ing will feature a shelf to recognize support employee award win ners through the years. “Thank you for every thing you do,” Moss said. Bay District Superin tendent Bill Husfelt said the spouses and families of the nominees should also be recognized. “We know all you put up with,” Husfelt said. Hall was instrumen tal in her department in the conversion of paper-based proce dures to online comput erized forms, according to her introduction for the award. She also provided technical sup port for her colleagues and other district employees. Hall also coordi nated a complete reno vation of the Human Resources offices. She met every deadline and ensured the department always was up and run ning, according to her introduction. The other four final ists were Bay High administrative sec retary Marion Har rington, Surfside Middle clerk Vicki McMichael, Northside Elementary bilingual paraprofes sional Rosa Peralta and purchasing clerk Jackie Dorman. Hall was selected from 42 nominees across the district. She will represent Bay Dis trict Schools in the state recognition program. The program is meant to “bring atten tion to the exemplary efforts of school support employees who are critical to the success ful operations of public schools and support departments,” according to the school district. ‘FOR THE KIDS’ from Page A1

Business FOCUS ECB unleashes aggressive effort to revive economy FRANKFURT, Germany (AP) — Europe’s ailing economy will get a major dose of stimulus from the European Central Bank — a bond buying program designed to make loans and exports cheaper so com panies can hire and expand. Starting in March, the ECB will buy 60 billion euros’ worth of government and corporate bonds each month at least through Sep tember 2016. The 1.1 trillion euro program was an emphatic signal of the ECB’s willingness to do all it can to rejuvenate the economy shared by the 19-nation euro cur rency alliance. ECB President Mario Draghi pledged Thursday to extend the bond buying if needed until the bank saw a significant upturn in the eurozone’s excessively low infla tion, which threatens to become a downward spiral. The ECB’s purchases will flood the economy with money that the central bank will create — a power it wields as the euro’s legal issuer. Its chief mandate is to maintain price stability. It’s fallen well short of its goal of 2 percent annual inflation, consid ered consistent with a healthy economy. The current rate is minus 0.2 percent. Fears have spread that the eurozone could face chronic falling prices, or deflation. Although low or falling inflation is often wel comed by shoppers, it reflects sluggish demand and can para lyze an already weak economy — a problem that has long afflicted Japan, the world’s third-largest economy. The eurozone still is work ing off a crisis over excessive government debt in countries like Greece, Portugal and Ire land. The alliance’s economy has lagged even as the United States and Britain have recovered more robustly from the finan cial crisis and Great Recession. Unemployment is 11.5 percent across the currency union, and 26 percent in Greece. In the United States, by contrast, the unemploy ment rate is 5.6 percent. Earlier Thursday, the ECB kept its main interest rate unchanged at a record low 0.05 percent. There’s no guarantee that the ECB’s bond buying can succeed without further action by national governments in the currency union. Skeptics have suggested that the bond buying has been robbed of some of its potential effectiveness through delay and that Europe’s problems lie beyond the reach of monetary policy. WASHINGTON (AP) — The number of Americans seeking unemployment benefits fell last week for the first time in a month, a sign that layoffs remain low and hiring is probably still healthy. The Labor Department says that weekly applications dropped 10,000 to a seasonally adjusted 307,000. The decline comes after applications spiked the previous week to a seven-month high. Most of the volatility reflects widespread layoffs of temporary employees hired by retailers, restaurants and other compa nies for the winter holidays. The government seeks to adjust the data for those seasonal trends, but doesn’t always do so perfectly. Applications have been near or below 300,000 since September, a historically low level that sug gests companies are cutting few workers. Instead, strong economic growth in the spring and summer has encouraged employers to add more jobs. “Through the volatility, claims are up a little recently,” Jim O’Sullivan, chief U.S. economist at High Frequency Economics, said in a note to clients. “The rise is too small to date to signal an uptrend, but the data merit watching.” Weekly applications averaged 308,000 in 2014, O’Sullivan noted, almost the same as last week’s figure. Job gains averaged 246,000 a month last year, the most in 15 years. Some companies are announc ing large layoffs. American Express said Wednesday that it is cutting 4,000 jobs, or about 6 percent of its workforce. Even with the recent increases, applications still are lower than a year ago. The four-week average, a less volatile measure, rose to 307,000. That is 8.5 percent lower than 12 months earlier. The decline in layoffs has been matched by an increase in hiring. Employers added 252,000 jobs last month, topping off the best year for hiring in 15 years. The economy gained almost 3 million jobs last year, helping to push down the unemployment rate to a six-year low of 5.6 percent. Still, wage growth has lagged hiring. Average wages increased only 1.7 percent in 2014. That’s down from 1.9 percent in 2013 and much lower than the 3.5 percent to 4 percent that is consistent with a healthy economy. U.S. jobless aid applications drop for first time in 4 weeks NEW YORK (AP) — A plan to revive Europe’s sagging economy rippled through the financial world on Thursday, setting off a rally in the stock market that wiped out its losses for the new year. The pledge by the Euro pean Central Bank to spend 1.1 trillion euros on bonds knocked down government borrowing rates across Europe and drove the euro to its lowest level against the dollar in 11 years. For inves tors, the long wait for action in Europe was over. “It’s all about the ECB today,” said Jeff Kravetz, regional investment strat egist at U.S. Bank Wealth Management. “This is a very positive development. They have a reputation of overpromising and underdelivering, and today they delivered.” The Standard & Poor’s 500 index jumped 31.03 points, or 1.5 percent, to close at 2,063.15. That nudged it into positive territory for the year, up 0.2 percent. The Dow Jones indus trial average climbed 259.70 points, or 1.5 percent, to 17,813.98 while the Nasdaq climbed 82.98 points, or 1.8 percent, to 4,750.40. In its much-anticipated move, the ECB announced that it would start buying 60 billion euros worth of gov ernment and private bonds every month, slightly more than what many in the mar kets anticipated. The central bank said the program will run 18 months, from this March until September of next year, but left open the option of extending the pro gram if necessary. That wiggle room is cru cial, said Joseph Quinlan, chief market strategist at U.S. Trust. Turning around an economy often takes lon ger than people think. The Federal Reserve launched its first bond-buying effort at the end of 2008 and kept expanding it over the follow ing years. Stocks rally, euro falls after Europe unveils plan DALLAS (AP) — Leaders of United and Southwest gave an upbeat forecast for 2015 that combined strong travel demand and cheaper fuel. Airline stocks soared on Thursday. The price of jet fuel has dropped by about half since September, boosting airline profits and tamping down fear that global economic weak ness could hurt the carriers. Analysts expect all four of the biggest U.S. airline operators to post bigger profits this year than in 2014. United Continental Holdings Inc. predicted first-quarter profit margins higher than many analysts had expected. Southwest Airlines Co. expects its fuel bill for 2015 to be $1.7 billion lower than in 2014. “Our earnings outlook is superb if for no other reason than fuel costs are down dramatically,” said CEO Gary Kelly. However, both companies reported lower fourth-quarter profit than a year earlier because of losses on contracts to protect against sharply higher fuel prices. Those contracts, called hedges, lose value when oil prices fall. Southwest’s net income dropped 10 percent to $190 million, as it booked $282 million in hedg ing write-downs. United’s net income plunged 80 percent, to $28 million, because of $433 million in special items, including $225 million in hedg ing write-downs and $141 million for severance to flight attendants who took early retirement. Southwest said it now is essentially unhedged for 2015, while United has closed out nearly all first-quarter hedges, executives told analysts. Hedging has been practiced by most major U.S. airlines for almost a decade. Despite the hedging losses reported this week by Southwest, United and Delta Air Lines Inc., finance experts say hedging can still be a smart move — protec tion against catastrophically high fuel prices. “You are buying insurance,” said John Par sons, a member of the finance faculty at MIT. “If you buy health insurance and don’t get sick, that doesn’t mean you made a mistake.” Parsons said hedging may be unnecessary for companies that have enough cash to cush ion them from higher commodity prices, while it could be critical for companies with lots of investment opportunities but not much cash. Airlines have another reason to hedge, he said — when fuel prices spike, the carriers can’t raise fares quickly enough to cover the addi tional cost. Among major U.S. carriers, only American Airlines wasn’t hedging. Its executives were running US Airways when that airline was burned by hedging losses during the last big oil-price collapse, in the second half of 2008. They stopped hedging and have stuck to that philosophy since they took over American Air lines Group Inc. after a 2013 merger. American declined to make executives avail able for interviews. They have previously said that airlines have a natural hedge — prices for both oil and airline tickets tend to rise when the economy is strong and fall when the economy is weak.

Page A6 | The News Herald | Friday, January 23, 2015 Viewpoints Our V IEW Tim Thompson, Publisher Mike Cazalas, Editor S. Brady Calhoun, Editorial Page Editor 747-5075 | @sbradycalhoun O nce again Florida’s voters used the amendment process to put Florida’s legislators and governor on their heels. Thanks to last year’s passage of the Florida Water and Land Conservation Initiative, “no less than 33 percent” of net revenue from the existing excise tax on documents must be spent on conservation. The Land Acquisition Trust Fund will “acquire, restore, improve and manage conservation lands including wetlands and forests; fish and wildlife habitat; lands protecting water resources and drinking water sources; beaches and shores; outdoor recreational lands; working farms and ranches; and historic or geologic sites.” The amendment now prevents the Legislature from breaking open this particular part of the state piggy bank and using the money on other projects. That will force Florida’s taxpayers to spend $648 million in the program in 2015-16. That is a significant amount of money to be used to buy even more land and put it under government control. The state owns plenty of land. Some estimates put the total as high as 30 percent of Florida acreage, all of it shielded from taxation and requiring taxpayer dollars for upkeep. It also seems clear that this conservation effort will come at the expense of other important projects. Sen. Don Gaetz, R-Niceville, told The News Herald’s editorial board that at least some of the money earmarked for transportation and other projects in the Panhandle could now be at risk. Gaetz added that he expects to need a whip and a chair to keep those funds safe as the Legislature scrambles to deal with this new financial burden. A government budget and legislation often is about priorities. That’s why one year state officials might emphasize and make much needed improvements to the Department of Children and Families and then turn their attention to something else the next year. Unfortunately, the state will now be forced to fund land acquisition and environmental projects every year for the rest of our lives no matter how badly other things in our state — education, law enforcement, prisons and transportation, to name a few — need attention. That’s bad policy that we will all just have to live with. Another bit of bad policy is Florida’s school testing mandates. We support the theory — as espoused by Gaetz and other Jeb Bush acolytes — that students should be tested and teachers should be evaluated. However, the reality of the situation on the ground has exposed a system that even its strongest proponents are finding difficult to defend. This year Florida’s teachers and students will be graded on standards that were not ready when the year began. This is the fourth new set of standards in five years. Also, it appears that the Webbased testing is buggy — just imagine if a student fails because she got the “Windows blue screen of death” during the test — and that several districts, including Bay, lack the resources and the manpower necessary to handle the enormous amount of testing required by the state. Gaetz’s position on this issue is solid. For instance, Gaetz has often stated the testing model that grades students and teachers must be simple enough to explain in 15 minutes at a PTA meeting. And he has worked diligently to try and get Florida’s Department of Education up to snuff. However, we haven’t seen anything so far that leads us to believe that these problems will be resolved in time for the start of testing in March. In an editorial board meeting, Gaetz told us that if the state holds students and teachers harmless for one year it might give the opponents of testing the ammo they need to dismantle the policy going forward. That might be true, but they will get just as much ammo, if not more, if this year’s testing is destructive instead of instructive. RICK MCKEE | The Augusta Chronicle P resident Obama sure is consistent. His State of the Union address sounded like his other speeches: What I’ve done is great! America is in a much better position. We’ve created a manufacturing sector that’s adding jobs. More oil is produced at home. I cut deficits in half! Give me a break. The deficit is lower now not because of any prudence on Obama’s part but merely because the $800 billion stimulus spending blowout didn’t continue. All the president does is increase spending: free community college, free Obamaphones, free birth control, etc. Yes, our annual deficit is lower, but it’s still $488 billion! Our $18 trillion national debt increases by $3 million every minute! Yes, more oil is produced at home, but that’s in spite of the administration. Oil production is down on public land. Yes, the manufacturing sector added jobs, but that’s mostly because of cheaper natural gas created by fracking, which Obama’s cronies opposed. Also, America is finally recovering from recession. Obama’s policies probably slowed that recovery. Does the President delude himself when he takes credit for oil production, lower deficits, etc.? Or does he mislead on purpose? I don’t know. More recently he bragged, “I created the lowest unemployment rate in years.” He created it? He must know it’s “low” only compared to the 10 percent reached during the recession — and because millions have simply given up looking for work. This recovery is the slowest in 70 years. If Obama gave the State of the Union address I’d like to hear, he’d say this: I heard you, voters, in November when you took control of the Senate away from my party. I get it. I overreached. I was arrogant. I imposed Obamacare on a nation that was deeply divided about it. I ruled through executive orders instead of legislation. I threw money at “green” nonsense. I’ll give up the payments to the “green energy” industry if the Republicans stop coddling defense contractors. I’ve been in government for years now. I know how badly it works. The last thing I should try to do is make it bigger. In fact, with Republicans now in control of Congress, it’s time I worked with them to shrink government. If we shrink it, we might even dig our way out of the debt hole we’re in. Heck, if we just slow the growth of government to 2 percent a year, we’d be in better shape. But I didn’t even try to accomplish that. I pretended taxing the rich would solve our financial problems. But there aren’t enough rich people to tax. I got drunk on the idea of promising voters “free” stuff such as low down-payment mortgages and guaranteed paid family leave. I told them that all good things come from government. That’s nonsense. We should put an end to all bailouts. Businesses that screw up should accept the consequences, just like ordinary people who spend recklessly. Main Street should never again be forced to rescue Wall Street. Instead of expanding government control of health care, we should phase it out. That includes Medicare. I know Medicare is popular, but it is unsustainable. Let current retirees receive their benefits as promised, but younger people should pay for their own health care. People criticize the economic distortion created by welfare, but Medicare and Social Security are almost as bad. Both redistribute money away from the young and struggling toward those of us who have had decades to invest and save up. To make these challenges a little easier to deal with, let’s make America richer by abolishing most regulations. They strangle opportunity. The more I think about it, the more Congress and I could transform America for the better just by getting out of America’s way. The state of our union will be truly strong if the state — by which I mean government — is strictly limited. John Stossel is host of “Stossel” on the Fox Business Network and a columnist with Creators Syndicate. Restate of the Union J ohn S tossel I recently overheard two young individuals discussing global warming, or climate change, at a doctor’s office. They were terrified that the world was destroying itself and they were going to die soon. At first I was amused, then, after more thought, concerned about what and how global warming is being presented. Relax, people; we are not going to die from climate change. The recent letters about climate change (Jan. 7, “Manmade climate change is not a real problem” and Jan. 16, “Climate change is a real problem”) need some factual response as to a very small part of what is really happening as currently understood. I know that it is a very difficult and frightening subject to many as to what really are the facts about the world’s climate. There are so many conflicting reports. Few highly quoted facts, other than the most basic, still are not truly proven. The rest is mostly scientific theory and much of it computer driven. Remember, computer models can be made to show what the designer wants it to show. Even the world’s best scientists do not know for sure what is happening, although some do claim to know. Let me state one thing that I do know for sure: There is no consensus amongst the world’s scientists as to what is truly happening and why. That is a trick statement used by many that is misleadingly correct in that “there is a consensus amongst scientists that the earth is warming.” That is a true statement in part, but only in part, and has yet to be proven by science as anything more than a trend lightly influenced by man’s activities. It is also very misleading in several ways. The earth’s temperature is continuously fluctuating and has not ever been stable. There have been extended periods of time in the recent earth’s history, since the year 0 by our way of dating, that have what are called periods of maximum and minimum. These are periods of naturally occurring increased or decreased global temperature averages. We have seen a slow and steady increase in the earth’s temperature from the last Little Ice Age. Our earth’s temperature despite the recent article, is not currently increasing. One current inconvenient scientifically proven fact, acknowledged by NOAA and by the IPCC, is that there has been NO increase in the world’s average temperature in the last 18.5 years, none. As to NOAA and the IPCC, they are both controlled by politicians who have their own agendas. Verify anything they say with the rest of the scientific world before accepting what they say at face value. The degree of concern that can be drawn from this warming depends a lot on the reference point. If you use the time when the earth is just starting to come out of the Little Ice Age minimum, around the time of our Revolutionary War, than the warming trend tells you one thing. If you pick the time during the center of the Middle Ages as the warming maximum period, it tells you something else. The fact that lies and half-truths are being told intentionally by many from both sides of the issue is one of the few that I truly accept as a hard fact. The recent statement that 2014 was the hottest year on record has not been determined as of yet. The final report has yet to be released. One of the reasons for this is that there are questions in the scientific world as to the accuracy of the measurement collection and methods used to determine this average. Actual measurement is only part of the data used with much of the rest being “adjusted.” Even without these questions, the increase over the previous hottest year as given in the early release is only several hundredths of a degree higher. Hardly a reason for concern at this point. Even if this is confirmed, it is still hardly the hottest year on record. Once again, what and who defines the word “record” in this usage? The Middle Ages Warming period appears to have had a higher average temperature than today or at least the same. The question still remains unanswered to science as to whether this warming trend is an anomaly or a correction back to “normal” averages. CO2 and all other climate forcings, both positive and negative, is a huge subject all by itself and highly misunderstood by the general public. Its influences both positive and negative cannot be addressed in this article. Man does contribute some to global warming, but at this time it appears to be an extremely low percentage. However, the true influence is also still unresolved. Most importantly of all — relax. BRUCE M.

NATIO N & WORLD Friday, January 23, 2015 | The News Herald | Page A7 BAGHDAD (AP) — Iraqi commanders heavily depen dent on outside support to defeat the Islamic State group are increasingly voicing frustration over the U.S.-led coalition’s efforts, complaining of miscom munication, failed deliver ies of weapons, inadequate training and differences in strategy. Speaking to The Associ ated Press this week, Iraqi Prime Minister Haider alAbadi said, “We want to see an acceleration of the training, acceleration of the delivery of arms” from for eign allies. Al-Abadi complained that Iraq is “left almost alone to get these arms and munitions for the army, for our fighters, and we expect much more.” At the same time, he reit erated that his government does not want any foreign boots on the ground, and he acknowledged that coalition airstrikes had been “very, very effective.” Leaders of the coalition stressed its successes at a London meeting Thurs day, with U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry saying that nearly 2,000 airstrikes had helped ground forces retake 270 square miles of territory, kill 50 percent of Islamic State commanders and choked off some of the group’s oil revenue. But three Iraqi generals who spoke to the AP on con dition of anonymity because they are not authorized to discuss ongoing operations said the U.S. has on several occasions ignored guidance from Iraqi commanders and has failed to provide ample training and weap ons to Iraq’s beleaguered forces. “Whenever we complain about the poor training they provided us, they remind us that it was Iraq who forced them to leave” in 2011, one of the generals said.

They’ve heard these promises before. This time, the stakes are arguably higher. The impetus for the new government proposals announced Thursday came after French-born Islamic radicals shocked the nation in three days of terrorist attacks. The government plan focuses on healing social and religious fractures by starting with schools, which Prime Minister Manuel Valls called the “essential link” in transmitting French values of secularism and freedoms that are often absent in notorious suburbs, or “banlieues.” Tinder boxes of discontent, the banlieues house France’s poorest, espe cially minorities with immigrant roots, including many Muslims from former French colonies. Concern about schools jumped to the forefront of national debate after some children refused to observe a minute of silence for victims of the Jan. 7-9 attacks on a kosher market and satiri cal newspaper Charlie Hebdo. Twenty people were killed in the attacks, including the three gun men, who had lived in impover ished neighborhoods in Paris and its suburbs. Valls shocked many this week by referring to a “territorial, social, ethnic apartheid” that especially affects the suburbs, and convened a special govern ment meeting Thursday to tackle this societal divide. In suburbs northeast of Paris on Thursday, residents denounced the terrorist attacks, but many could understand why some children didn’t observe the moment of silence. “People were killed in the housing projects by police, and there was no minute of silence” for them, said Aly Sacko, a 28year-old working with the city hall in Clichy-sous-Bois. Two teenag ers with immigrant backgrounds were killed in a power substation in Clichy-sous-Bois in 2005 while fleeing police, sparking weeks of riots in suburbs across the country. Similar incidents have prompted smaller riots in other cities in the decade since. Sacko, a French-born Muslim of Malian origin, said the prime minister’s plans to fix poverty and social tensions are a “dream.” ‘‘Nothing will change, I promise you,” he said. The plans announced Thurs day include special training and testing for school teachers about French and European citizen ship, secularism and how to teach it. Specific funds to help the poor est families with some schooling costs will increase by 20 percent, to $52 million, Education Minister Najat Vallaud-Belkacem said. Police: U.S. man in Canadian chemical case threatened cops TORONTO (AP) — A U.S. man at the cen ter of an investigation into hazardous chemi cals has been charged with uttering threats against police and possessing a dangerous chemical, police announced Thursday. Police allege 42-year-old Christopher Burton Phillips possessed a chemical called osmium tetroxide for a dangerous purpose. The discovery of hazardous chemicals prompted the evacuation of two neighbor hoods in Halifax this week and an Ottawa hotel where Phillips was arrested. Royal Canadian Mounted Police were alerted to a suspicious package by a con cerned citizen in Halifax, eventually leading to the evacuation of homes Tuesday morn ing. The package was determined to contain hazardous materials but not explosives, the RCMP said. Five homes elsewhere in Halifax were also evacuated as police found hazard ous and volatile materials there as well. Ottawa police arrested Phillips at the Chimo hotel in Ottawa on Wednesday and linked the arrest to the discovery of the chemicals in Halifax. Police say they found no hazardous materials in the Ottawa hotel. Court documents allege the offenses took place between Dec. 26 and Jan. 21 in a Halifax suburb. Police did not elaborate on the charges. Phillips is an ophthalmologist and the ex-husband of former U.S. Olympic gym nast Shannon Miller. The couple divorced in 2006 after seven years of marriage. A senior Canadian government official said he is a chemist with no known crimi nal record but was in possession of highly toxic chemicals. His current wife notified police because of her concern about his irregular behavior, according to the offi cial, who spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak publicly. In 2008, Phillips filed for bankruptcy in Seattle months after suddenly clos ing his laser eye surgery business. Phil lips listed assets of just over $962,000 and liabilities of nearly $4.7 million. In court documents he filed related to his bankruptcy case, Phillips said he was a disabled Navy veteran who was injured and became addicted to painkillers. The document said he continued their use as a physician and his “resulting erratic behavior led to numerous disputes in his personal life.” The U.S. Navy confirmed Phillips served but did not have more details. He described a difficult time in 2008 when he was no longer allowed to practice medicine in Washington State and was required to live apart from his current wife partly because of relationship problems. His lawyer noted in a brief that his wife had moved back to her family home in Nova Scotia, Canada.

Ouster of Florida’s top cop could spark power shift TALLAHASSEE (AP) — The abrupt ouster of the leader of Florida’s main lawenforcement agency could lead to a major shake-up in how the state Cabinet and the governor hire top officials. Agriculture Commissioner Adam Putnam on Wednesday called for an overhaul of how the state Cabinet approves agency heads. Putnam also wants to change how the governor and Cabinet oversee several departments. Florida’s other two Cabinet members, Attorney General Pam Bondi and Chief Financial Officer Jeff Atwater, also expressed concerns about the appointment process after Gov. Rick Scott forced the resignation of Florida Department of Law Enforcement Commissioner Gerald Bailey and then asked the Cabinet to name his handpicked replacement to the job. All three Republican Cabinet members last week approved Rick Swearingen to replace Bailey, but after the vote said they weren’t aware that Bailey, who had held the position since late 2006, was forced to step down. Bailey later told the Tampa Bay Times/Miami Herald about political interference and unethical requests from Scott, his staff and his campaign team. The uproar over Bailey’s ouster has prompted calls for outside investigations and other state elected officials to question what happened. Democratic legislators this week said the state’s ethics panel should consider probing the incident, while outside watchdog group Integrity Florida said it has a sent a letter to a federal prosecutor and the FBI requesting them to look into Bailey’s allegations. “The recent process behind the appointment of a new FDLE Commissioner has raised serious questions, and those questions should be answered to ensure transparency, and the public’s right to know,” Bondi Teen returns to Kentucky By ZACK McDONALD 747-5071 | @PCNHzack PANAMA CITY — A Kentucky teenager accused of a multi-state crime spree of stolen cars and forged checks has left Bay County to face charges in his home state, according to jail officials. Dalton Hayes left the county jail Thursday with less commotion than when he arrived Saturday. He had waived an extradition hearing, and Kentucky authorities picked up the 18-year-old about 6 a.m. to face several charges in connection with a series of vehicle thefts and pilfered checks through several Southern states. According to Grayson County, Ky., Sheriff Norman Chaffins, Hayes will face at least burglary, trespassing and criminal mischief charges. Hayes, who already was wanted on burglary and theft charges from December, and 13-year-old Cheyenne Phillips allegedly set out Jan. 3. Hayes said Phillips wanted to escape an abusive family member and instigated the trip. They were arrested Saturday night behind an IHOP in Panama City Beach. “She didn’t want to go home because she was getting beat on,” Hayes said during a jailhouse interview with The News Herald on Monday. “Now she got me in a bind. I’m looking at years in prison for all I did for her.” The pair allegedly ditched cars and stole replacements in Kentucky, South Carolina and Georgia before they arrived in Panama City Beach. Hayes said they got lost looking for an interstate leading to Miami. According to family members, Hayes and Phillips allegedly plowed through a Kentucky cattle farm in a stolen vehicle at the start of their journey. A tire blew out, and the couple slept in a frigid barn that night, Hayes said. Police said the teens then stole a red 2006 Toyota Tacoma that had a firearm inside and fled the state. They were spotted later in South Carolina and then Georgia, where on Jan. 14, the 2006 Tacoma was recovered and a silver 2001 Tacoma was reported stolen, police said. The couple were captured about 11:30 p.m. Saturday when lawmen descended on the stolen Tacoma behind the IHOP at Pier Park North, according to PCBPD records. Hayes and Phillips were Council approves flooding projects By JOHN HENDERSON 522-5108 | @PCNHjohn PANAMA CITY BEACH — The City Council approved two projects Thursday to address flooding issues in the Gulf Highlands and The Glades neighborhoods after listening to residents complain that it’s time for a little less talk and a lot more action. Residents of both communities said they were frustrated by the inaction since their homes were severely flooded in July 2013. They dished out numerous ideas they thought could ease flooding, but in the end the council went with the two proposals the staff presented. A few residents were unhappy that their sections of the neighborhood would not get immediate relief, but county staff said they are limited in funding and that this is a good first step. “Anything you all can do for us would be greatly appreciated,” said Joyce Cash, the secretary for Gulf Highlands’ homeowners association. In 2013, the council approved a survey to examine flood basins in The Glades and Gulf Highlands subdivisions, which includes the area surrounding Seaclusion Drive where many homes flooded during the July 4 storms that year. Many homes in the area that flooded were built before the city had a stormwater ordinance, which requires structures be built at least 1 foot above the road. Panama City Beach has been awarded federal hazard mitigation grants after one its stormwater consultants, Preble-Rish Inc., applied for the funds. The firm will conduct engineering services for the “Gulf Highlands Stormwater Improvement Project,” which could be underway by early next year. “I am actually happy to talk about this because I think it’s good news for us,” city stormwater engineer Kelly Jenkins said. The council approved a $99,700 engineering contract with the firm as well as an agreement between the city and the Florida Division of DALTON HAYES Thank you News Herald for letting us squall. This is such a fun site with so many participating. Nice way to voice your opinion. I’ve been a wishin’ skeeters would go away for 55 years. Still got ‘em, ain’t we? If all I had to complain about was the weather and spring breakers, I’d be in nirvana. Thanks for showing up, snowbirds. You are an inspiration to those of us who survive by your wintering in PCB. Higher rents this year, higher rents for next year, and the low Canadian dollar kills our winter trip here for next year. Here is my free version of the beach and water conditions. Sand is lovely as always. Water way too cold. No need to thank me. You’re welcome. Life on Mars. Hope so. Doesn’t seem to be much going on down here in P.C. other than drug busts or shootings. Might give Mars a whirl. Do you people always have to complain. It is either too hot, too cold, or spring breakers will be here in a month. Why not just go away! Complain all you want about your home, but you have a symphony that is great and we attend every winter that we are here! Note to squallers who constantly complain: Envy is the most pathetic emotion. Take charge of your own life. At what age is it appropriate to tell my dog that he is adopted? Instead of complaining about the beach mess of March break, let’s get a volunteer group together to regularly do beach cleanup walks. Easy. Most of Jenks Avenue road has all kind of deterioration, sediment cracks and holes. It’s past time to resurface it. I cleaned up almost the entire eastern beach shore last year and filled about 30 garbage bags. I’m Canadian, so a bit frustrating but good. For those of us who care, it’s hard to have a regular beach walk without stopping regularly to pick up litter, but if we all help. Readers sound off Squall Line appears daily.

That was the consensus among the Hurricane Hunters, members of the 53rd Weather Reconnaissance Squadron who invited reporters to take a rare peek at one of only 10 WC-130J aircraft in the Department of Defense’s inventory. “It’s really nothing special,” Aerial Reconnaissance Weather Officer Kait Woods said. “It’s just like any C-130 out there. There’s no special structural (enhancements). It just has a couple instruments on the outside that are specifically for weather observation.” The 53rd WRS, according to an Air Force fact sheet, started in 1943 as a barroom challenge between two Army Air Corps daredevils.

S outhport man pleads guilty to robbing bank twice A Southport man on Thursday pleaded guilty to robbing the same Dothan bank twice within a year. James Daniel Toothman entered the plea in Montgomery federal court. Toothman admitted to robbing a Regions bank branch in January and December of 2011. Authorities have said 44-year-old Toothman passed a note to a bank teller demanding money but was not armed during either robbery. Florida state troopers told the Dothan Eagle in 2011 that Toothman led them on high speed chase after the second robbery before crashing his car. Defense lawyer Stephen Ganter said Toothman suffered a brain injury during the crash. A judge this summer found that Toothman was competent to stand trial. A federal judge will sentence Toothman later.

LOCA L & STATE Page B4 | The News Herald | Friday, January 23, 2015 said in a news release. She said she wants the matter to be addressed at the next Cabinet meeting Feb. 5. Many agency heads, including those in charge of the state’s health department and prison system, report only to the governor. But a handful of agencies report to both the governor and the three Cabinet members. Atwater sent a letter to Scott on Tuesday night saying he wants to do a new search for an FDLE commissioner. Scott replied in his own letter that a new search could be done, but then stated he wants to keep Swearingen in the job to prevent “unnecessary turmoil.” Scott then said he wants to discuss firing three other state officials, including Insurance Commissioner Kevin McCarty. He said government should “frequently change leadership to bring in new ideas and fresh energy.” Atwater said Wednesday that in hindsight, the Cabinet should have done a more thorough job of selecting a potential commissioner, especially considering the allegations made by Bailey. “It’s a serious matter,” Atwater said. “We need a better process and one that is very transparent.” Putnam for his part said he saw no reason to start a new search for an FDLE Commissioner since the Cabinet just approved hiring Swearingen. “The cure doesn’t appear to match the disease absent any new revelations about improprieties,” Putnam said. But Putnam does want the Cabinet to switch to a more formalized process in choosing appointees. Usually the Cabinet lets the governor select someone and the members vote to approve the choice. Putnam wants the Cabinet to go through an established process that includes interviews with qualified candidates.

FLOODING PROJECTS from Page B1 TEEN from Page B1 TOP COP from Page B1 Emergency Management to use $109,256 in grant money for the drainage project. In August 2013, CDM Smith was hired to analyze different scenarios to see what could be done to ease some of the flooding for 100-year rainfall events. The report concluded that adding two, 54-inch culverts at Front Beach Road near the Pompano’s Restaurant parcel and lowering a portion of the existing weir would provide five inches to six inches of relief to many Gulf Highlands residents. Councilman John Reichard said the firm made slow progress on the project and that the city needs to consider that the next time it decides which stormwater engineering firm to hire. “In the last year and a half, it’s been a year late in getting this to the folks in Gulf Highlands,” Reichard said. “In the last year and a half we’ve just been doing an analysis.” Jenkins said the work calls for adding additional pipe under Front Beach Road near Pompano’s Restaurant. The contract the council approved will pay for Phase One of the project, which involves engineering work. Work will take a couple years and cost a total of $690,000. The grant requires a 25 percent local match, but Jenkins said he hopes the county can pitch in the 25 percent. “We’re hoping to get it fully funded,” she said. The council on Thursday also approved an agreement with another city stormwater consultant, McNeil Carroll Engineering Inc., to perform engineering services for a ditchwidening project north of The Glades subdivision. In other action, the council: Listened to a preliminary report from City Manager Mario Gisbert about possibilities of building another exit and entrance to Colony Club. Approved an ordinance that would require those who want to modify an appeal of a Planning Commission’s land development code decision to file it no later than 10 days from the hearing before the City Council. sleeping in the truck. They also could face forgery charges in South Carolina. Although Hayes has said he was unaware of Phillips’ young age up until they left Kentucky — he said she had forged identification — it is unclear whether he will face molestation charges. Cheyenne Phillips’ father, Shawn Phillips, told the Associated Press that Hayes’ abuse allegations were “completely bogus.” HURRICANE HUNTERS from Page B1 Duckworth, in response to what must have been a double-dog dare from a drinking buddy who is not named in the fact sheet, flew twice through a hurricane on the same day. Seventy years later, the fiveperson crews that follow in Duckworth’s contrails aren’t looking for thrills but scientific data that provide weather forecasters with critical information potentially deadly storms. Woods is a meteorologist in charge of directing the pilots into the eye of hurricanes. When the aircraft reaches the center of a storm, the loadmaster drops a parachute-equipped sensor about the size of a thermos called a dropsonde. The dropsonde gathers air pressure, temperature and wind data as it falls 10,000 feet to the ocean. The crew monitors the data it collects in real time to make sure it is accurate. As storms approach a coast, the frequency of these datagathering operations intensifies, said Lt. Col. Keith Gibson, director of operations for the Hurricane Hunters. “We’ll have a plane in the eye 24-7 when storms make landfall,” he said. The data they gather is sent almost immediately to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration Hurricane Center. Forecasters use the data to determine as much as they can about the storm, including where and when it might make landfall. The Hurricane Center uses the information to issue watches, warnings and advisories. That cone of uncertainty that shows up on the news when storms approach would be perhaps 40 percent more uncertain without the Hurricane Hunters, Woods said. Woods flew directly into the eye of Hurricane Katrina, as she has with other storms since 2005. But her most harrowing experience in an airplane had nothing to do with hurricanes and actually occurred over the Midwest en route to Alaska. “Most of the time, it’s not as exciting as you might think it would be. In fact, I think I’ve been on more scary commercial flights before,” Woods said. However, she added, “The eye is just unbelievable.”ANDREW WA RDLOW | The News Herald Lt. Col.

The student was flown to a hospital Thursday morning. She was treated and released. Police said the stabbing was an isolated event between two students, but the school was placed on full lockdown for about two hours. Officials said the suspected attacker was taken into custody almost immediately by a nearby school resource officer. ORLANDO 2 people died after riding Disney rides in 2014 Officials said two people died on Disney World rides during the last quarter of 2014. According to a report released Wednesday by the Florida Bureau of Fair Rides, a 22-year-old woman with a pre-existing condition lost consciousness on Christmas Day while riding It’s a Small World. She later died. The report also said a 54-year-old woman lost consciousness while riding Toy Story Midway Mania at Disney’s Hollywood Studios in October. The Orlando Sentinel reported Disney officials say the rides were operating normally when the incidents happened. The state releases reports of injuries associated with rides at major theme parks each quarter. The reports are part of an agreement between the state and theme parks, which are exempt from public regulation. Disney reported nine other incidents and Universal Orlando reported five.

The company designs, develops and manufactures automotive safety systems including air bags and seatbelts. Witnesses saw a plane in distress around 10 a.m. When officials arrived, the warehouse was on fire. Cook said the plane was a Twin Engine Piper Apache.

Scott wants to stop taxing college textbooks TALLAHASSEE (AP) — College students could be getting a break on the cost of their textbooks under a new proposal announced on Thursday by Gov. Rick Scott. Scott, during a visit to the University of North Florida in Jacksonville, said he wants to exempt all textbooks used by students from state and local sales taxes. The state’s sales tax is 6 cents on the dollar. “We must continue to make the dream of earning a college education attainable for every student,” Scott said in a statement. “Eliminating the sales tax on college textbooks will directly help every Florida student with the cost of college.” The Scott administration estimates the tax break could save a fulltime student as much as $60 a year, which assumes they are spending up to $1,000 on textbooks. The tax break is expected to cost more than $41 million if the Florida Legislature goes along with the idea. Scott said last year on the campaign trail that he wanted to help bring down the cost of textbooks. Scott has pushed to keep down the cost of college and last year he convinced legislators to limit tuition hikes at the state’s public universities. The Republican governor has pledged to cut taxes by $1 billion over the next two years. Earlier this week he released a nearly $500 million proposal to slice the taxes that Floridians pay on various communications services including cable television, cellphones and traditional phone lines.


DIVERSIONS A ces On BRIDGE: B obby W olff Granddad shares theories about fearful grandson DEAR AMY: My almost 13-yearold grandson stays overnight at our house and always wants his grandmother to sleep with him because he is “afraid.” He promised to stop asking for her to sleep with him when he turned 12 but has not kept his promise. We live in a “55 and over” community that is very secure. He and his mother text throughout his entire stay — everything from “good morning” to “what did you have for dinner?” Both mother and son appear to be considerably neurotic. It is the same when his 10-year-old sister comes to spend the night. I may be an old fogey, but I think this is unhealthy behavior. It sends the wrong message to the kids about safety, individual strengths and independence. I do not say anything about it to my son and his wife because I fear they would start restricting their visits to our house, and maybe even our visits to theirs. We do not say anything to the grandkids for the same reason. Should my wife and I just pretend that all is well or should we attempt to talk with all of them about it? What do you suggest? DUMBFOUNDED DEAR DUMBFOUNDED: I agree with your instincts but disagree with your conclusions and behavior. You should not cast your grandson as neurotic and judge him so harshly. Do your best to be the wise, strong and reassuring grandparent he deserves. You and your wife should not have waited this long to confer with his parents on how to improve the dynamic. Your fear that they will restrict visits is keeping you from communicating with them about the visits — which seem to be going quite badly. Ask them for suggestions. Your wife and grandson should not be co-sleeping. Ask the boy to sleep in his regular bed and tell him he can come to you at any point if he becomes nervous for any reason. When he comes to your room, YOU (Grandpa) should patiently walk him back to his room and reassure him. If he can’t manage in his room, let him sleep in a sleeping bag on the floor of your room while he adjusts. If you are more engaged with the boy, his mother’s texts will be less intrusive. Teach him to play chess. Let him teach you his favorite video game. Go camping together. Develop rituals that he enjoys. Be in his corner. That’s what every child needs from a grandparent, and (so far) he does not have this with you. DEAR AMY: While cleaning and clearing up some old, forgotten paperwork, I came across a 13-yearold check that was made out to me and never cashed. It was payment for music lessons I gave to my friend’s daughter. The amount was $100. I recently had dinner with my friend and laughingly showed her the outdated check. She didn’t realize it hadn’t been cashed because she was divorcing and her ex had closed the account. She insisted on writing me a fresh check. When I disclosed this situation to a family member she said I should have just let it drop. After all, this was 13 years ago already! Am I right here? Am I due my money — or should I just let it drop? I certainly don’t want to lose a friendship over this. UNSURE FRIEND DEAR FRIEND: Your friend paid her bill. It is not her responsibility to make sure you cashed the check — or to hunt you down if you didn’t cash it. This was your mistake. It was kind (and unnecessary) of her to insist on paying you again after all these years; if you decide to cash it perhaps you could use the money to treat the two of you to dinner. DEAR AMY: “Furious” was a young woman whose stepfather hit and damaged her car. She should file a police report, then file a case in small claims court against that guilty stepfather for the damage. A slamdunk case for her. JIM DEAR JIM: Small claims court is a commonsense solution. Thank you. Send questions via e-mail to askamy@ or by mail to Ask Amy, Chicago Tribune, TT500, 435 N. Michigan Ave., Chicago, IL 60611. Ask AMY Amy Dickinson Advice Columnist SU DO KU ARIES (March 21-April 19): Your past will inform your future, if you care to look at it very carefully. This day is a fast rush, so that kind of review may seem impossible, but knowing you, you’ll find the time for a moment of reflection. TAURUS (April 20-May 20): The more you give the more you want to give; it feels so good. Your generosity will make a difference for those who need it, and it will make an impression on those who could stand to give more. GEMINI (May 21-June 21): You’ll meet someone who knows about the subject you are extremely interested in of late. If your questions are met with resistance, assure your subject that your interest is impersonal. CANCER (June 22-July 22): Do you dare head out on a quest? The distances you travel may not be physical miles, but you will arrive at a new place anyhow. You will be a friend to many fellow travelers, though some relationships will emerge as special. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Honor tradition. The simple act of sitting down to a meal with loved ones will be grounding. The regular things about life get you grounded for what promises to be an action-packed weekend. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Your nearest will appreciate what you do, because they see how much effort it takes, though they don’t understand the intricacy of it. Next in line are those with similar skills. They really get it. Keep them close now. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23): You’ll compare yourself, to the extent that it helps you maintain a competitive edge. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21): You have so much work to do and no clue how you’re going to accomplish it all. Other people — that’s the answer. And when you’re giving instructions, you’ll be simultaneously assertive and laid-back. Amazing! SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): They like the results, yet they still may have a criticism. That is unacceptable. Let your people know that they can’t have the effort without the person who is doing the work. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): There’s a physical chasm to be crossed with human ability. Take the chance. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Segal’s law suggests that a man with one watch knows what time it is and that a man with two watches is never sure. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): People will say the wrong thing from time to time. Be patient with someone who is socially awkward. THAT SCRAMBLED WORD GAME by David L.

To submit an item for Out & About, email or fax to 850-747-5097 Out & About Page B8 | The News Herald | Friday, January 23, 2015 The opening scene from Clint Eastwood’s “American Sniper” (the scene is the exact same as the original trailer) dispassionately shows a man in an ethical quandary and raises interesting, unanswerable questions. Juxtaposed to a later scene with a child and a rocket launcher, there is plenty of ammunition for a strong moral statement wrapped into a troubling personal tale, especially considering the fine acting. Unfortunately, the story of Chris Kyle, the man with the most kills in American history who repeatedly braves Iraq at the expense of his family and his deteriorating mental health, never builds on that promise. The film’s moral complexities are undercut by its simplistic view of people. There are only three types of people, the film says, and two of them are bad, the other one is Kyle. With this attitude it can’t help but fall too far into patriotic hero-worship, and that can be a damning thing when the rest of the film insists that Kyle is an Everyman and that war brings suffering to every man. It sits on the precipice of propaganda, yet it’s impossible to nail down what it’s actually selling; it feels preachy, but its sermon is muddied. “Sniper” pretends to be an ethically challenging experience, but really it’s just pandering, and even the times when it isn’t bluntly pandering, it’s simply an inferior copycat of “The Hurt Locker.” As it is, “Sniper” magnificently creates sub-text and then dissolves it into really bad text. Some have called the film politically neutral when really it’s politically confused. It’s as if Oliver Stone directed a John Milius script. The result isn’t centered, but rather both left and right of center. Indeed, it’s never really centered or settled anywhere.

WC@TriviaGuy.comWILS O N C A SEY Trivia Guy Clint Eastwood is an interesting director for me. He has made some of cinema’s most acclaimed and beloved films (“Unforgiven,” “Million Dollar Baby”), yet I often find myself on the opposing side of many people’s glowing praise of him. Despite having a powerful true story behind it and one of the greatest trailers I’ve seen all year, “American Sniper” is overly preachy and a mess of war morals. Chris Kyle’s story is undeniably telling and dramatically tragic: The most deadly Navy SEAL sniper in history learns how to deal with the things he’s seen and done while fighting the War on Terror. Bradley Cooper is really good as Kyle, continuing his streak of beautifully walking the line between prestigious actor and intangible movie star. If only the script and dialogue garnered fewer eye-rolls and more genuine emotion. Honestly, it’s among the weakest and most pretentious scripts in a long time, like if Nicholas Sparks wrote an overtly jingoistic war film. While at moments it seems to want to capture the coldness of war, at others it asks us to cheer for the very things that are destroying these lives. Part of the problem is that not too long ago Kathryn Bigelow, with “The Hurt Locker” and “Zero Dark Thirty”, told very similar war-ethic tales, but with better results. Both of those films represent their characters and the Iraq War with complexity and nuance, all while being gut-wrenchingly thrilling and tautly focused. “American Sniper” does none of these things. Instead of giving this thing any more money, go watch the crucial and criminally under-seen “Selma.” Rating: 1.5 out of 5 stars Panama City Beach musician Matt Greene, who has a bachelor’s in philosophy from the University of North Florida in Jacksonville, always has enjoyed viewing, debating and critiquing all forms and aspects of film, from foreign films to slapstick comedies.

Sports PANAMA CITY NEWS HERALD Section C Facebook: Twitter: @NH_Sports Gordon ending his career after 2015 season The Associated Press Jeff Gordon, with a nagging back injury, a young family he wanted to spend more time with and a phenom waiting in the wings at Hendrick Motorsports, knew midway through last season that he had one more year in him. NASCAR’s most charismatic driver, the man behind the wheel of the famed and sometimes feared No. 24, had decided it was time to call it quits on one of the most successful careers in motors ports history. The four-time champion conferred with Rick Hendrick, the only team owner he has had over 23 years of Sprint Cup racing, and settled on a date. The 43-year-old Gordon announced Thursday that 2015 will be his final season as a full-time driver, saddening legions of fans, fellow drivers and others who watched him became the face of stock car racing as the sport exploded in popularity a generation ago. In an interview with The Associated Press, Gordon said he reached his deci sion last summer. He had seen other driv ers embark on distracting farewell tours, and he didn’t want to be that guy. Although he told his crew chief of his decision after narrowly missing out on shot at a fifth championship, it took time to settle on the day to tell the world. It started with a conversation with his two young children when they woke up for school. They worried they won’t go to the race track anymore, that other kids might think of them differently if their father is not a famous race car driver. The conversation with Ella and Leo made the decision a reality for Gordon — and he wept. “Ella just stared at me, she’d never seen me cry like that before,” Gordon told AP. “After that, I seriously broke down. It hit me like a ton of bricks, and I got so emotional and thought, ‘How am I going to get through this day?’ ” FRIDAY January 23, 2015 Gibson shines in starring role for GC women By DUSTIN KENT 747-5065 | @PCNHDustinKent PANAMA CITY — As a freshman, Chelsey Gibson knew her role: bring an offensive spark off the bench and provide support for established Gulf Coast stars such as Jessica Morton and Dominique Powell. Gibson performed well in that role, finishing second on the team in scoring at 12.7 points per game and third in rebound ing at 6.8 despite starting only six games. This season, the 6-foot forward from Pensacola has been asked to step into a starring role on a largely brand-new team that features just two returning players, neither who were full-time starters. To this point, the Marquette-bound Gibson has been fully up to the task, lead ing Gulf Coast with 18.6 points per game on 48 percent shooting from the field and 35.7 percent from the 3-point line. She also adds 8.8 rebounds and 2.1 steals per game. The results haven’t propelled Gulf Coast to the top of the Pan handle Confer ence. Far from it.

West Florida senior Brianna Schubeck had scored 36 goals entering Thursday night’s Region 1-3A girls soccer quarterfinal match against Mosley. To put that in better perspective, that amounted to 60 percent of her team’s scoring output for the season. Mosley did everything it could to ensure that Schubeck wouldn’t dictate the outcome of their match held at Arnold’s Mike Gavlak Stadium and prevailed 3-0. Mosley, 15-1-1, will host Gulf Breeze on Tuesday in a region quarterfinal. The Dolphins switched their lineup, coach Marek Betkowski said prior to kickoff, to get more speed on the outside to better limit Schubeck. But Mosley didn’t need to shadow her with one athlete. It was more the effort of all 10 field players that held Schubeck off the score board. She had four of the Jaguars six shots, but three of them came on free kicks. Schubeck barely had more touches than shots as Mosley’s dominance was so extensive that only once in each half did West Florida gain possession inside the box on its offensive end. It was a Dolphins’ squad that has been pointing to this stage of the season, and appeared com pletely focused on the task Thursday night. “No. 2 (Schubeck) is a very good player, but we’ve got 11 good players,” said Mosley junior midfielder Taylor Hallmon, who will graduate early next year and enroll at Florida State. “It was nice to get two early goals, then we just had to keep the ball. We worked all year for this. The last couple years we were good, but we’re stocked with upperclassmen now and that helps us. We’re going to make a run for it this year.” Mosley forged a lead in less than a minute when Gracie Mullins scored on the first shot of the game. Jordan Lewis set up Mullins to the right of keeper Morgan Duckworth, and her second goal of the ME L B O URNE, Austra lia (AP) — Just like Serena Williams eight years ago, Victoria Azarenka entered the Australian Open as an unseeded player after an injury-plagued season. Williams had won the Australian title twice before then — Azarenka can match that, too, after back-to-back triumphs here in 2012 and 2013. All the dance moves and fashion distractions can’t disguise the fact Azarenka wants to go where Wil liams has been — by being an unseeded winner of the season-opening Grand Slam event. Both players advanced to the third round with straight sets wins on Thursday: Aza renka beat No. 8-seeded Caroline Wozniacki, the 2014 U.S. Open runner-up, 6-4, 6-2; top-ranked Williams had to save three set points, then won the last 10 games in a 7-5, 6-0 win over former No. 2-ranked Vera Zvonar eva, a two-time Grand Slam finalist. Asked how tough it was to cope with meeting a former No. 1-ranked player so early at a major, Azarenka said the stage doesn’t matter. “I knew that I’m unseeded so I can play anybody. I just accept whoever is on the opposite side,” she said. “I just try to do my best. She had such an incredible end of last season so I knew I had to step up my game and really take my chances today. I think I did that pretty well.” Azarenka’s ranking slipped into the 40s this month because of a series of injuries that restricted her to nine tournaments in 2014 — only the top 32 players get seedings at the majors. Serena Williams was ranked No. 81 after a long time on the sidelines but in 2007 became the first — and only other — unseeded winner of the Australian Open since Chris O’Neil, who was ranked No. 111 when she claimed the 1978 title. Williams has won two more Australian titles since then, and is aiming for her sixth at Melbourne Park — and 19th Grand Slam title overall — this month. After breaking Williams’ serve twice and having three set points in the first, Zvona reva won only eight points in the second set. Williams just reminded herself of how successful she’d been in Australia, “and things really clicked.” “I had no other option but for things to click,” she said. “I just had to start playing better.” Williams will next play No. 26 Elina Svitolina, who beat Nicole Gibbs 7-6 (3), 7-6 (6).

ANNOUNCEMENTS Gordon said he sobbed during the entire 30-minute drive to Hendrick Motor sports, where he tearfully informed his team and his longtime employees of his decision. Gordon choked back tears yet again dur ing his interview with AP when his mother sent him a text message that he read aloud: “I never knew watch ing ‘SportsCenter’ could be so emotional.” “I’m emotional because I am so proud,” Gordon said. “It’s all I ever wanted, to be a race car driver. And here I’ve lived this incredible dream and yet that chapter of my life has been fulfilled and it’s now time to go to the next step and the next chapter.” He made a point to say he didn’t use the word “retirement” because he could still drive again after this season. Gordon’s 92 wins trail only Hall of Fame drivers Richard Petty (200) and David Pearson (105). His fame reaches far beyond the track and resonates with non-sports fans. He won all the big races, collected four championships in just seven years and had 58 victories before his 30th birthday. He was a new breed of driver when he broke into NASCAR’s top series, arriv ing with a sprint car pedi gree and talent that made him an immediate con tender. The clean-cut kid helped raised NASCAR’s corporate image beyond its moonshine roots, making it a legitimate power on Madi son Avenue as tens of thou sands of new fans flocked to automobile racing in the late 1990s and 2000s. “Jeff changed the per sonality and perception of a race car driver in NASCAR,” retired NASCAR crew chief Larry McReynolds said. “Before he came along, the perception was more about the good old Southeastern boy wearing blue jeans, big belt buckles and boots. But he created a new buzz in our sport because he looked like he stepped off the cover of a GQ magazine.” Gordon, who debuted in the final race of the 1992 sea son in Atlanta, won champi onships in 1995, 1997, 1998 and 2001. He also has three Daytona 500 victories and a record five Brickyard 400 wins. Gordon told AP that his 1994 win in the inaugural Brickyard 400 — NASCAR’s first race at historic India napolis Motor Speedway — was easily the highlight of his career. The low point? Intention ally wrecking Clint Bowyer in the closing laps of the 2012 race at Phoenix, where frustrations over a disap pointing season got the best of him. GORDON from page C1 Venus Williams joined her sister in the third round with a 6-2, 6-3 win over fellow American Lauren Davis. Wimbledon champion Petra Kvitova beat Mona Barthel 6-2, 6-4 and next faces Madison Keys, who rallied for a three-set win over No. 29 Casey Dellacqua. No. 6 Agnieszka Radwanska, No. 11 Dominika Cibulkova, the 2014 final ist, No. 19 Alize Cornet and No. 24 Garbine Muguruza also advanced. Novak Djokovic advanced with a 6-0, 6-1, 6-4 win over No. 88-ranked Andrey Kuznetsov in 84 minutes. Defending champion Stan Wawrinka, who ended four-time champion Djokovic’s 25-match win ning streak at Melbourne Park in the quarterfinals last year, had a tougher 7-6 (4), 7-6 (4), 6-3 win over No. 194-ranked qualifier Marius Copil. “I don’t compare from last year to this year. Just a new Grand Slam,” said Wawrinka, who is defending a Grand Slam title for the first time. “It’s been two matches now. Going to be ready now for the next one.” Wimbledon semifinalist Milos Raonic had a 6-4, 7-6 (3), 6-3 win against Donald Young and next plays Benjamin Becker, who came back from two sets down to end former No. 1-ranked Lleyton Hewitt’s 19th con secutive run at the Australian Open. U.S. Open finalist Kei Nishikori beat Ivan Dodig 4-6, 7-5, 6-2, 7-6 (0), moving into the third round along with No. 9 David Ferrer, No. 12 Feli ciano Lopez, No. 18 Gilles Simon, No. 19 John Isner and No. 31 Fer nando Verdasco. Jerzy Janowicz ral lied for a 6-4, 1-6, 6-7 (3), 6-3, 6-3 win over No. 17 Gael Monfils. The third round started today, with No. 2 seeds Roger Federer and Maria Sharapova playing matches one after each other on Rod Laver Arena, where the night cap will feature No. 3 Rafael Nadal against Dudi Sela. the second half of confer ence play. Going from being a player who contributed to one being counted on for big production every night can be a tough transition. But it’s a role that Lady Commodores coach Roonie Scovel prepared Gibson for from the beginning of this season. “Coach told me that if I wanted to be a great player, I have to rebound and take everything more seriously and just execute everything I do,” Gibson said. “She just challenged me to pick it up more.” Scovel, who returned to Gulf Coast’s sideline after stepping away for two seasons, replaced former coach Vernette Skeete after Skeete took an assistant job at Marquette. Having to play catch-up on the recruiting trail and not having much in the way of returning players, Scovel said she knew she would need more from Gibson and told her so right from the start. “For these kids who come here, it’s about devel opment and getting ready to play at a four-year school,” Scovel said. “Last year, Chelsey came in and was a supporting player, but I told her during the summer that things were going to change and we were going to need her to be a leading player this year.” Gibson responded by averaging 17.9 points and 7.8 rebounds through the nonconference schedule and posting a career-high 40 points against MiamiDade on Nov. 22. Her numbers have been even better against Pan handle Conference competi tion, with Gibson averaging 21.5 points and 12.8 rebounds through four games. She had back-to-back games of 20 points with 17 rebounds and 19 points with 17 rebounds against Tallahassee and Northwest Florida State followed by a 27-point, 11-rebound effort against Pensacola State in the team’s only Panhandle win. Scovel said she hasn’t been surprised to see Gibson raise her level of play as the quality of competition improved. “The thing about Chelsey is that she really likes to compete,” Scovel said. “That’s probably the thing that stands out about her the most. She just really likes to go out there and compete and play hard, and the tougher the team we play the more she wants to compete.” Gibson was one of only two Gulf Coast players who had actually participated in a Panhandle Conference game before this season. She felt a responsibility to set the tone early for the level of intensity required to play in a league that features three of the top 12-ranked teams in the country. “Being a veteran, I know what you have to do in the Panhandle,” Gibson said. “We had to let (the new players) know that the Pan handle is the toughest con ference in the nation. Every game is going to be a dog fight. Every point counts and as teammates we have to have each other’s backs.” Unfortunately for the Lady Commodores, the results haven’t been to their liking thus far. There are in fourth place and currently a long shot for a state tourna ment berth behind Chipola (4-1), NWF State (4-1) and TCC (3-2). That hasn’t put a damper on Gibson’s season though, with Scovel attributing her versatile forward’s work ethic and leadership for her growth as a player. “You can see how much she worked in the offseason with how well she’s playing,” Scovel said. “She’s improved her aggressiveness, her ability to dribble-drive on people. She’s gotten better as a shooter, her mid-range game is better. “She can bring you out (on the perimeter) or take you to the hole. She has just stepped up her game and improved in every way.” Gulf Coast will travel to Marianna on Saturday to face Chipola at 5:30 p.m. GIBSON from page C1 TENNIS from page C1 AUSTRALIAN OPEN GLANCE A look at the Australian Open on Thursday: Weather: Sunny, high of 97 Fahrenheit.

VICTORIA A ZARENKA FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) — The two men most respon sible for delivering wins for the New England Patriots both said Thursday they have no expla nation for how footballs used to reach the Super Bowl were underinflated by 2 pounds per square inch. Patriots quarterback Tom Brady said he has not been contacted by the NFL, even as league officials investigate whether the team cheated against the Indianapolis Colts in the AFC championship game. “I don’t know what hap pened,” Brady said, answering questions from reporters hours after Patriots coach Bill Belich ick said he almost never thinks about football pressure and doesn’t know what happened, either. “I didn’t alter the ball in any way,” Brady said. Unlike Belichick, who answered questions briefly after a long opening remark by repeatedly saying “I’ve told you everything I know” and “I don’t have an explanation,” Brady answered many questions for a half hour and said he doesn’t think about the conditions of the ball during games. “I get the snap, I drop back, I throw the ball,” Brady said. “I don’t sit there and try to squeeze it and determine that.” He does, however, have his preferences — he likes the foot ball to be pumped to 12.5 pounds per square inch of air pressure, he said. The NFL requires balls to be inflated between 12.5 and 13.5 pounds per square inch. Brady said he never has knowingly played with a ball with less than 12.5 pounds per square inch of pressure. “To me, that’s a perfect grip for the football,” said Brady, who will face the Seattle Seahawks in the Super Bowl on Feb. 1 in Glendale, Arizona. “I would never do anything outside the rules of play.” With different approaches, Belichick and Brady sent a uni fied message: Both said they have no clue how the footballs were tampered with or switched during last Sunday night’s 45-7 win over the Colts, and started learning about the issue along with fans and everyone else. “I have no knowledge of any thing, any wrongdoing,” Brady said when asked who on the Patriots was responsible for the underinflated footballs. “I’m very comfortable saying nobody did it as far as I know.” Asked if he should have tried harder to learn what happened, considering the possible effect on the team’s reputation, Brady said, “I think there’s a lot of people that have more informa tion than me.” Brady said he picks the game balls he wants to use sev eral hours before kickoff, then doesn’t think about them at all.

SPORT S Friday, January 23, 2015 | The News Herald | Page C3 Photos by HEAT H ER LEI PH ART | The News Herald Mosley’s Taylor Hallmon charges past three West Florida players to push the ball upfield. MOSLEY from page C1 season quickly made it 1-0. At 12 minutes, the Dolphins doubled their lead on a pretty passing play that featured three of their offensive mainstays. Hallmon gained possession deep in the Jaguars’ end and pinpointed scoring leader Eliza beth Vickers, who was stationed about 15 yards straight out from Duckworth. Vickers made a slick spin move to gain separation from a defender, but just as it looked like she would fire on net she played the ball off to her left to Kristi Jones. With Duckworth pulled off the line, Jones had plenty of open net while notching her 21st goal of the season. It remained 2-0 until the final minutes, when West Florida coach Peter Stephens emptied his bench in submission. Gabby Krajniak was hauled down in the box, and her penalty kick finished the scoring. The Dolphins might not have had a knockout in them, but it could be said that West Florida barely landed a punch. Mosley launched 22 shots, 12 of them on goal. Duckworth made some fine saves. She tipped aside Hallm on’s header off a corner kick in the first half, and twice thwarted Vickers in the second half. At 62 minutes, she stopped Vickers’ low shot and barely kept it from crossing the line. Mosley keeper Mariah Rine hart had a quiet night by com parison, called on to make only one save. West Florida’s best opportunity came when Isabella Ames ran down a long pass to break in on Rinehart, but Emily Whitlock raced back to head off the threat. Hallmon’s play at midfield during the first half combined with some good work by Ste vie-Marie Mullins and Rachel Bates among others to enhance Mosley’s staggering edge in ball possession. Hallmon moved to cen ter-back for the second half, a maneuver she’s made often this season when the Dolphins were in control. Her presence helped ensure the Jaguars wouldn’t wrest away momentum and mount a comeback. West Florida 0 0 — 0 Mosley 2 1 — 3 Scoring: 1. Gracie Mullins (Jordan Lewis), 1 minute. 2.

PANAMA CITY — This may have slipped under your radar in recent weeks, but a longstanding tradition that celebrated the arts was dropped from the governor’s inauguration ceremony in South Carolina on Jan. 14, citing a lack of time. At least South Carolina has a poet laureate. Florida has had three: Franklin N. Wood, appointed by Gov. John W. Martin in 1929; Vivian Laramore Rader, appointed by Gov. Doyle E. Carlton in 1931; and Dr. Edmund Skellings, appointed by Gov. Robert Graham in 1980. Gov. Rick Scott signed legislation establishing a state poet laureate in June 2014, but the nomination process is still in development. South Carolina governor Nikki Haley was sworn in for her second term Jan. 14. When the state’s Poet Laureate Marjory Wentworth inquired about the traditional reading of a new poem during the ceremony, the governor’s ofce informed her there was insufcient time in the ceremony schedule for her two-minute poem to be read. Four years prior, Wentworth read her poem, “The Weight It Takes,” at Haley’s inauguration. It focused on natural images of rivers, rocks and sh, and it called on the new governor to “be the weight that grounds us through swirling hours of each day.” Wentworth will be a featured author at Books Alive on Feb. 7 at Florida State University-Panama City. She will have two sessions: The News from Poems, and Creating a Sense of Place in Poetry and Fiction (with Mary Alice Monroe). She also will speak to my Education Encore class Feb. 6. The same day as Haley’s inauguration, Rep. James Clyburn (D-SC) addressed the House oor and read Wentworth’s poem into the congressional record. “We’ve seen many instances of arbitrary actions against the powerless by the powerful when words and actions threaten their comfort levels. Such actions should not be,” Clyburn said. “I applaud Ms. Wentworth for her touching words, and I am reading her poem today in hopes that the people of South Carolina, across the country, and peoples around the world are as touched by her words as I have been.” In the summer of 2014, Wentworth wrote the New York Times, reacting to a report on the controversy surrounding the choice of North Carolina’s poet laureate, who had almost immediately resigned the position. In her letter, Wentworth noted “poetry is ourishing” in South Carolina, “home of the oldest poetry society in the United States.” But she also notes that some in seats of power have little regard for the arts. During the previous governor’s term, $1,500 was earmarked to cover travel and accommodations for Wentworth to make appearances at schools and literary events around the state; Haley’s ofce has set aside nothing for her expenses. In an NPR interview, Wentworth said she thought the new poem was cut from the schedule because she didn’t stick to “safe” topics, instead mentioning a former slave market at Gadsden’s Wharf, and the execution of a 14-year-old black boy convicted of murdering two white girls, who was exonerated 70 years later. “I really believe that our history is part of what’s holding us back,” Wentworth told NPR. “It’s kind of an unhealed wound. And we’re all in this together. And I know that sounds a little like John Lennon, but I wanted people to think about some of those things.” Peace.

Friday, January 23, 2015 PanamaCity.Com PAGE 7 LUKE’S LAST SPRING BREAK? Luke Bryan will return for his seventh — and reportedly his last — free Spring Break concert dates this year. The allages shows will be March 11 and 12 at Spinnaker Beach Club, and will coincide with the release of Bryan’s last Spring Break album, “Checkin’ Out.”


By JAN WADDY 747-5072 | @JanWaddy1 LYNN HAVEN – For Lucky Mud’s Maggie and Michael McKinney, life is about the journey. “If this ends tomorrow, it’s been a great ride,” Maggie said Monday morning inside Roberts Hall. “Folk I think of as music of the people — stories, ballads and lyric stuff that reaches out and touches people. It makes somebody cry, laugh or think, makes a ripple in somebody’s life; the music expresses something for them. ... I want somebody who sings with heart, doesn’t have to be perfect.” The singing/songwriting duo had returned home to Econ na Creek the night before after playing in another music festival. The couple tours throughout the U.S. and abroad, including annual performances of their original folk music in Ireland. “We did our rst concert together 43 years ago,” Michael said. “We just got back from Orlando.” For the past couple of years, they have spent Sunday afternoons hosting the Americana Cafe Music Series at Roberts Hall, but this Sunday both oors of the historic building will come alive during the Roots & Wings Music Festival. “We have an opportunity to get with a lot of great musicians. We wanted to bring them here, our home. We love lyric bands with acoustic original music,” Maggie said. “This is a culmination of two years of doing the Americana folk music series. We will have three groups besides us -— The New 76ers, a brother and sister and her husband; Brian Smalley, an incredible guitar player; and Paul Kamm and Eleanore MacDonald are ying in from California Wednesday night. They are all incredible songwriters, people we admire.” The festival will begin at noon with a chance for guests to interact with the musicians during three one-hour workshops, from guitar to songwriting and vocal/harmony. “We will have at least three incredible guitar players, things for more beginner to expert level. This is not a showcase show-off. We want them to bring their guitar, and we will have a couple of extras for people,” Maggie said. “We wanted to make it special and make it affordable. The workshops are all included in the price of the ticket. We will have workshops upstairs and concerts downstairs.” On Monday, Maggie was calmly nalizing details of this weekend’s festival across the street at Victoria’s Last Bite, while owners Victoria “Vickie” Cook and Judy Tinder took a break on the bench outside. Victoria’s Last Bite will be open during Sunday’s festival to give guests another option. Inside Roberts Hall, Chuck and Chantal Gandy will have homemade shrimp jambalaya, chicken jambalaya and crab soup for sale from noon to 4 p.m. “It’s going to be a good kitchen,” added Michael, who is especially excited about “blueberry bread pudding and amaretto sauce.” Sales from food and arts and crafts vendors, including jewelry from Pat Daly and crafts from Charlotte Warnberg Moreau, will all wrap up at 4 p.m. “We won’t have any food during the concerts,” Maggie said. “This is a listening room. We have an incredible audience who wants to hear the words, the lyrics.” Beer, wine, water, coffee and tea will be served throughout the event for a donation to Roberts Hall. “A percentage of every ticket goes to building restoration,” Maggie added. The building, built by L.J. Roberts in 1912, was bought by The Independent Order of Odd Fellows fraternity in 1922. They rented the rst oor to Lloyd’s Country Store for more than 40 years, how most area residents remember the building. The Odd Fellows began doing much needed repairs and restoration of in May 2008. Palm tree murals painted by a local artist in the 1940s still adorn the upstairs walls across from the stage where Hank Williams Sr. once played in the s. But Maggie and Michael wanted to keep concerts downstairs for the festival, just like they do during the Sunday concerts. “We don’t want the separation from the audience,” said Maggie, who is only selling 100 tickets for this weekend’s festival. “We hope to turn this into a bigger festival but wanted to start out small. ... I want to share this music with people, what we do and feel the community of it. We nally have an audience that listens.” Musicians will play one-hour shows followed by 15-minute breaks, beginning with Lucky Mud at 4 p.m. Their CD, “Pride,” was released in September 2013, the latest of the duo’s 10 albums. Though Maggie and Michael have traveled throughout Florida to Texas, Nova Scotia and the British Isles, there is no place like home. “We’ve sat on an island in the English channel and looked out at lights of France while we played old English ballads. ... Music has brought us the world,” Michael said. “If we come home and spent $5,000 and break even, we pop champagne.” They have deep roots in Florida, where they nd inspiration for their songs in the natural landscape. “My family founded the area around Marianna in the 1820s,” said Maggie, who added, “The T.H. Stone Memorial Park, that’s my great great uncle.” Michael’s family has been around the Tampa area for 150 years. “We live in one of the second generation Gainer houses, which we think is from the 1880s,” Maggie said. The couple and their son rst moved to the home on 7.5 acres in 1985. Michael also writes novels in these woods, from “A Thousand Bridges” published in October 1992 to “The Foothills of Heaven” in July 2013. Following Lucky Mud is Brian Smalley, a guitar player and songwriter from Apopka. He has released six albums during his 20-year career. His latest, “Key,” set in the Florida Keys, tells the ctional story of Painter Kellet and Compass Rose. Brian will be followed by The New 76ers, who are “looking forward to sharing the stage and collaborating” with the other musicians. “They are a hot young trio from Tallahassee, the whole package,” Maggie said. The evening culminates with Paul Kamm and Eleanore MacDonald of Nevada City, Calif., who were scheduled to play Jan. 22 during Americana Under the Stars. The series, also hosted by Lucky Mud, is Thursday nights at Topsail Hill State Park in Santa Rosa Beach. Musicians often go the state park and play, then get a cabin and come to Roberts Hall and play Sundays. “That’s how we’re able to get such high-quality acts,” said Maggie, adding, ”Every person who ever played here wants to come back.” Kamm and MacDonald have been writing and performing their blend of original contemporary and traditional folk music for nearly 30 years. Their use of harmony, heartful songwriting and guitar has garnered them Kerrville, Telluride and Rocky Mountain New Folk awards. “I think Kamm and MacDonald is the best in America. The rst time I heard them was on satellite radio,” Michael said. “We made sure we bring people in who are really good lyrically.” PAGE 8 PanamaCity.Com Friday, January 23, 2015 Friday, January 23, 2015 PanamaCity.Com PAGE 9 ROOTS & WINGS MUSIC FESTIVAL What: Lucky Mud presents a day of concerts featuring Americana musicians; three workshops: guitar, songwriting and vocal/ harmony; arts and crafts vendors; Cajun food When: Noon to 10 p.m. Jan. 25; doors open at 11:30 a.m.; vendors and food from noon to 4 p.m. Where: Roberts Hall, 831 Florida Ave., Lynn Haven Tickets: $25 in advance/$30 at the door; limited seating; order at market/lucky-mud Sponsors: Boondocks by Winn Dixie in Lynn Haven, Ace Hardware in Panama City Beach and in Springfield on U.S. 98, Target at Pier Park, Lisa Anderson Law Firm, Bill and Miki McFatter, Grady Thrasher and Kathy Prescott, Mayor Walt Kelly and Neil and Barbara Gudgel and Beach Property Management Details: or (850) 722-4915 MORE MUSIC AT ROBERTS HALL ROBERTS HALL OPRY: 7 p.m. first Saturday of each month with Margo Anderson in Opry style show.

By TONY SIMMONS 747-5080 | @PCTonyS PANAMA CITY — Opening night, Ryan Burkett stood in the crowd at Vinyl Press and remembered how much fun it was to run a record store. Ryan had been the proprietor of Tek Records in St. Andrews some years ago. He opened Vinyl Press with his older brother, Patrick, and Mosey’s co-owners Phil Mercer and Judd Manuel just in time for New Year’s. The shop, open 24/7, sells pressed sandwiches and pressed (or pour-over) coffee as well, but Ryan stresses that it is, rst and foremost, a record store. “I used to think it was kind of cool to have a record store,” Ryan said, referring to Tek. “Now it’s really cool. Vinyl outsold every medium except digital last year.” The shop is situated by Mosey’s at 437 Grace Ave., in downtown Panama City. New collections of old records arrive on a regular basis, and the store also carries new vinyl releases. Live bands play the venue regularly; check the Facebook page for announcements. “When Mosey’s appproached me about trying this, I wasn’t sure after Tek,” Ryan said. “But then I thought about the location, and doing coffee and food with it. I wondered why nobody had thought of it before. Any big city has a downtown area with historic buildings, cafes, a bar, a pizza shop — a record store.” Sandwiches use Boar’s Head meats, with homemade pesto and locally grown organic tomatoes and spinach leaves from Farmish Market. Coffee and teas are provided by Amavida. The focus is on “simple sandwiches with high quality ingredients,” Patrick said, and the word has already gotten around. On a recent afternoon visit, Kyle Sullivan took at seat at the counter with a friend and ordered a sandwich. “I live over in the Cove,” he said. “How convenient is this going to be? Now I have an option.” “We’re getting raves on the sandwiches,” Ryan said. The albums are priced according to going rates, based on rarity, condition and other factors, but Ryan also prides himself on undercutting so-called “collector” pricing. There’s also a room lled with $1 records. “We have 1,000 records in the $1 room, and I’m always nding something new in there,” Ryan said. However, some of the tags are more fantastic than others. For instance, an LP of dramatic audio stories of “The Six Million Dollar Man,” dating from the time of the original TV series, is currently priced — $6 million. That’s probably negotiable, although Ryan really likes owning that one. Patrick got “thrust into vinyl” at age 17, when he worked at WKGC AM. He even bought Ryan his rst vinyl album (“Man and Astroman”) when his little brother was 12. “I’ve always enjoyed having the real thing,” said Patrick. “You open it up, you have stuff to look at, stickers or posters, sometimes colored vinyl.” By morning, Vinyl Press is a coffee shop, and by afternoon it’s a record store. At night, “it’s everything,” Ryan said, thanks to overow from Mosey’s, wait staff getting off from other restaurants and bars, and young music-lovers just hanging out. “By day, we’ll keep it a little mellower,” Patrick said. “By night, we’ll turn it up. ... We want to be a presence downtown, which needs a presence that’s open pretty much all night.” Tunes, drinks and eats, by the platter VINYL PRESS What: Record shop, coffee and sandwiches Where: 437 Grace Ave., Panama City When: Open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week Details: (850) 6280271 or Facebook. com: Vinyl PressC ONTRIBUTED PHOTOON T H E WEB: See video and more photos of Vinyl Press at PATRICK BURKETT PHOTOS BY ANDREW W ARDLOW | The News Herald Friday, January 23, 2015 PanamaCity.Com PAGE 11


By TONY SIMMONS 747-5080 | @PCTonyS PANAMA CITY — Heather Clements sat at a cafe table in CityArts Cooperative on a recent rainy morning to discuss the illusion of our place in the world and how she tries to express that through her art. For several years, her focus has been on the intersection between humanity and the greater world — often depicted by melding the human form with trees, owers and animals. “The main concept is environmental, the blur between humans and the rest of Nature,” she said. “The idea of ‘Human vs. Nature’ is an inane statement. We are Nature.” The Visual and Performing Arts Division of Gulf Coast State College is hosting “Human Nature,” an exhibition of Heather’s drawings, Jan. 23 through Feb. 19. The exhibit, including several new pieces never before shown to the public, will be on display in the Amelia Center Main Gallery (room 112) from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Thursday (regular gallery hours). In addition, Heather will present a lecture from 1-2 p.m. Jan. 30 in the Amelia Tapper Center, room 128. An opening reception will be 5-7 p.m. the same day. Admission is free for the exhibit, lecture and reception. “...Humans are not separate from Nature, but a part of Nature,” Heather said in promotional materials for the show. “I believe in order to have the motivation to innovate for a sustainable future, we not only need to understand the facts, but have a full perspective shift that embraces the awe-inspiring symbiosis we share with the rest of nature. My art explores how beautiful and euphoric it can be to reconnect with our natural world.” Originally from northern Virginia, Heather attended art school in Baltimore, Md., graduating cum laude. But she had no idea what to do with her degree — “or my physical body,” she said. “I didn’t want to go back home,” she said. “I wanted to move forward rather than backward.” A friend was moving to Panama City, a place Heather said she’d never heard of before, and she joked about moving with her to be by the beach. Heather contacted several galleries in the area, and the owner of The Gallery Above on Harrison Avenue (now the A&M Theatre) offered her a solo show. Shortly thereafter, he handed the whole gallery over to her. She ran it as a community arts hub from 2007 to mid-2009, with monthly exhibits, themed shows, open mic nights, touring bands, indie lms, swing dance lessons, performance art events and much more. “It has been a place for people to come with an open mind and experience unique and creative things,” Heather told me as the closing PLEASE SEE HUMANITY | 13 ‘HUMAN NATURE’ What: Solo exhibit by artist Heather Clements ( Where: Amelia Center Main Gallery, Gulf Coast State College, 5230 West U.S. 98, Panama City When: Open 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Thursday (regular gallery hours) through Feb. 19; Clements will present a lecture 1-2 p.m. Jan. 30; the gallery will have an opening reception 5-7 p.m. Jan. 30 Admission: Free to exhibit and events Details: or 872-3886 Embracing a natural humanity ARTIST’S ARTIST’S ARTIST’S ARTIST’S touch CONTRIBUTED PHOTOS PAGE 12 PanamaCity.Com Friday, January 23, 2015


loomed that summer, adding that she was proud of the “real creativity and thoughts and emotion and feeling in the art.” Heather went on to offer drawing classes at the Visual Arts Center of Northwest Florida, where she also served as the exhibitions manager and graphic designer. In 2010, she became a director at CityArts Cooperative, where her husband, Mat Wyble, now runs Mat’s Good Coffee. The changes in her life have reected in her work. “Before college, my art really wasn’t about anything. I was experimenting with light, color, texture. Honing my technical skills,” she said. “In college, I started to stretch and learn conceptually, how to make my art about something.” But in her last years of college and immediately after, Heather’s art was about Heather. “I was working through my issues,” she said. “Art would tell me what was going on in my head when I couldn’t gure it out for myself.” In her time living in Panama City, Heather’s art has gone through denite periods of focus: portraits, octopi, and paper cuts, for example. For her new exhibition, she returned to her “rst love” — drawing. She works from reference photos, and she wants her human models to be completely natural (no makeup and no styled hair). She doesn’t draw them thinner than they are, and she doesn’t remove freckles or wrinkles. “Ever since I was little, my art focused on the human gure,” she said. “Maybe it’s egotistical of us, to be a human and draw humans, but that’s what’s important to us — ourselves.” But the most important reason Heather’s work forces viewers to examine their relationship with the natural world: “There are a lot of things wrong in the world,” she said, “but none of them matter if we don’t have a world to live on.” HUMANITY from Page 12 Friday, January 23, 2015 PanamaCity.Com PAGE 13


By JAN WADDY 747-5072 | @JanWaddy1 LYNN HAVEN — As the rain drizzled on a recent Thursday afternoon, I followed my hunger to Fish On. I hadn’t been to the seafood restaurant at 1507 Tennessee Ave. since it was J’s, and I had been disappointed with my last visit. But when J’s was good, it was some of the best, most reasonably priced fried shrimp in the area. J’s Seafood Restaurant owner Jason Reynolds began by selling shrimp off the side of the road nearly 20 years ago, and opened and moved locations several times in Panama City area. I had eaten at the restaurants on 15th Street in Panama City and on Tyndall Parkway in Callaway, though I never went to the ones in Southport or on 23rd Street. I was nervous when I walked in Fish On as the only customer, but a familiar face greeted me. Phillip Smith, who once took my order behind the counter in the same building, told me he is now the owner. “I had worked for J. for three years in one capacity or another,” explained Phillip, who opened Fish On in October. “I took it over from him when he didn’t want to run it anymore. But I went ahead and changed the name because he’s probably going to open up another one; he always does. And I didn’t want there to be another J’s.” All of the benches had been painted white, and the walls had a fresh coat of turquoise under shing poles and signs, but not much else had changed. The menu still features the World’s Largest Fried Seafood Platter, but Phillips Fish On: Nothing fancy, but same fried shrimp PLEASE SEE FISH | 15 FISH ON SEAFOOD RESTAURANT Where: 1507 Tennessee Ave., Lynn Haven Hours: 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday Details: 571-5604 or Fish On Seafood has been given a fresh coat of paint. CONTRIBUTED PHOTOS Fish On was reopened under a new name and ownership in October. Phillip Smith has incorporated more sh on the menu at Fish On, formerly J’s Seafood Restaurant.

has added a lot more sh to the menu, including Red Fish, Mahi Mahi, Red Snapper and Flounder. “Mullet is hugely popular, so much I can’t keep it is stock,” Phillips said. “I get seafood from a variety of sources. I have an independent shermen who comes in. I also use Water Street in Apalachicola. I buy a lot from them. I get local sh when I can get it. I buy cod frozen, because you can always get it.” I went straight for the Gulf Shrimp Basket, $9.99, I remembered. The basket came with 12 shrimp, fries and two hush puppies, and I chose the side of cheese grits instead of coleslaw. The shrimp were as good as I had hoped they would be, though I should have slowed down and let them cool off. “It’s a simple recipe of our, salt and water,” Phillip said. “I keep everything on ice, thawed. I use all-purpose our, no batter; that’s really all you need, so it is not covering up the taste of the seafood. That’s what J. did and that what I do, too. I use exactly the same recipes, exactly the same cooks. I hired all of them for myself.” The fries still had the familiar sprinkle of Cavender’s Greek seasoning, the hush puppies had a crispy outside, and the cheese grits were creamy. “I use a Mexican white cheese, Queso Blanco, then I sprinkle a little cheddar on top,” said Phillips, originally from a small town along the Rio Grand Valley in South Texas. “If I had to do over again, I’d incorporate more Mexican on the menu.” FISH from Page 14 JAN WADDY | The Shrimp Basket was served with 12 fried shrimp, fries, two hush puppies and a side of cheese grits.
