HE AT HE R LEIPH ART The News Herald Graham holds her first local open house By ZACK McDONALD 747-5071 | @PCNHzack email@example.com P ANAMA C I TY â€” Rep. Gwen Graham held her first Bay County â€œopen houseâ€ Friday on the heels of her first votes on several parti san issues. Graham, D-Tallahassee, toured Tyndall Air Force Base on Friday morning before meet ing with dozens of constituents in her new office at the Bay County Government Center. The occasion marks her first visit to Panama City since being sworn in as the first female to represent the Second District of Florida in the U.S. House of Representatives. While some people showed up merely to welcome Graham and some to encourage her actions on topics like the future of Shell Island, other campaign support ers appeared to express discontent with some of her recent votes. â€œThere was a recognition of my campaign pledge to be bipar tisan,â€ Graham said. SEE GR AHAM | A3 By VALERIE GARMAN 747-5076 | @valeriegarman firstname.lastname@example.org P ANAMA C I TY â€” Bay County is facing slower economic growth than the state as a whole, which made measurable gains last month, according to figures released Friday by the Florida Department of Economic Oppor tunity (DEO). The Bay County labor force declined in December, while the areaâ€™s unemployment rate dropped slightly from 5.9 to 5.8 percent. Floridaâ€™s annual job growth rate was 3 percent, but the Panama City metro area lagged at less than half a percent. Kim Bodine, executive direc tor of CareerSource Gulf Coast, chalked the areaâ€™s slow growth last month to seasonality. â€œSoon our tourism industry will be ramping up for North Floridaâ€™s season, and we will see a decrease in the unemployment rate,â€ Bodine said. â€œIn the mean time, weâ€™ve assisted in placing hundreds of workers in jobs with General Dynamics, and that helps folks immensely. Itâ€™s an oppor tunity for them to gain income when they otherwise might be displaced. The temporary jobs at General Dynamics normally end about the time our tourist season begins.â€ CareerSource Gulf Coast is a regional organization provid ing services to job seekers and employees in Bay, Gulf and Franklin counties. Bodine cited a series of hiring events scheduled in the coming months, including a Hospitality Job Fair on Feb. 10 at Gulf Coast State College and the annual Bay County Job Fair on Feb. 27 at Haney Technical Center. Overall, the countyâ€™s labor force dipped from 88,583 in November to 86,967 in December, while the number of residents Dec. Nov.

New computerized signal system eases traffic in Bay County By JOHN HENDERSON 522-5108 | @PCNHjohn email@example.com P ANAMA C I TY â€” A few times lately, Drew Whitman has been able to travel Back Beach Road from the Hathaway Bridge to the Police Department on State 79 without hitting a red light. The Panama City Beach police chief said the improvement in traffic flow is noticeable, and he credits a computerized traffic signal synchroni zation system that was recently up and running. â€œItâ€™s made a huge difference,â€ he said. â€œItâ€™s pretty impressive.â€ Bay County is the only county in the Pan handle to get Florida Department of Trans portation (DOT) funds to install the system, which is different from the coordinated traffic signal system the county has been using at other intersections. With the adaptive system, a computer tracks traffic in real time and adjusts signals on Back Beach Road (U.S. 98). The computer also moni tors traffic on side streets and adjusts the lightsâ€™ timing to help traffic flow.

Cuba has so far offered a guardedly positive reception to President Barack Obamaâ€™s loosening of the trade embargo on Cuba, saying it welcomes the full package of new economic ties on offer, but it insists it will maintain its one-party political system and centrally planned economy. The Associated Press SALT LAKE CITY Fugitive arrested after 34 years A man who police say has been on the run since he escaped from a Mississippi jail 34 years ago was arrested Thursday in a small central Utah town, police said. Sam Gene Harris has lived under at least 10 different aliases and escaped from two other jails in Oregon, Carbon County Sheriff Jeff Wood said. He also has a criminal history in Florida and Georgia, including charges for theft and assaulting an officer, Wood said. The 61-year-old man had been living relatively quietly off the main street of the 1,600-person town of Wellington for several years when an FBI bulletin tipped off Utah police to his identity Thursday, police said. Officers were looking over the layout of his home to get a search warrant when they saw him walking across the street and arrested him, Wood said. Harris hasnâ€™t spoken with officers much about his background. â€œHe claims to have had a traumatic brain injury a few years ago, and he doesnâ€™t know where he was before that,â€ Wood said. Harris was living under the name Wayne Edward Stevens, the same name he used in Oregon, and he also a Utah driverâ€™s license under that name, Wood said. Harris was serving a four-year sentence for shoplifting and possession of burglary tools in 1980 when he escaped from the Forrest County jail, Wood said. Harris will be extradited to Mississippi to face charges related to the escape. He had been living alone in Utah. Officers had talked to him about a theft case, but he hadnâ€™t been charged, Wood said. Police are investigating how he went undetected so long. MONTGOMERY, Ala. Judge strikes Alabama gay-marriage ban A federal judge has struck down Alabama laws banning gay marriage. U.S. District Callie V.S. Granade ruled Friday in favor of two Mobile women who sued to challenge Alabamaâ€™s refusal to recognize their marriage performed in California. Plaintiffs Cari Searcy and Kimberly McKeand said that they had been a couple for more than a decade and had a child together with the help of a sperm donor. However, an Alabama court refused to let Searcy be recognized as the childâ€™s adoptive parent because state law did not recognize the couple as spouses. Granade said a state statute and 2006 amendment to the Alabama Constitution were both in violation of the equal protection clause of the U.S. Constitution. LOS ANGELES Fewer kindergarteners skip vaccinations Fewer California parents opted out of vaccinations for their children entering kindergarten last year following the adoption of a law that makes it harder to go without the shots, state figures show. The issue has taken new prominence as California deals with an outbreak of measles that originated at Disneyland last month, sickening 78 people. Most of the infections are in California and most of those who got sick were unvaccinated. Measles has also been confirmed in six other states â€” Utah, Washington, Colorado, Oregon, Nebraska and Arizona â€” and Mexico. The rate of personal-belief exemptions for kindergartners fell from 3.1 percent in 2013 to 2.5 percent last year, according to data collected by the California Department of Public Health. Itâ€™s the first drop after years of record number of parents seeking waivers to avoid school immunization requirements. â€œThe early signs look good. However, it is too early to make a definitive determination. We will have to make sure that this trend is stable,â€ Saad Omer, an associate professor of global health at Emory University, said in an email. California is among 20 states that allow parents to forgo vaccines for their children because of personal beliefs. Under the immunization law that took effect last year, parents claiming a personal-belief exemption from vaccines must have a signed form from their doctor saying that they have received information about the risks of opting out. Gov. Jerry Brown added a lastminute religious exemption that does not require a doctorâ€™s signature. CUBA MIGHT BE JUST 90 MILES FROM THE FLORIDA COASTLINE, BUT WHEN IT COMES TO FORGING A NEW RELATIONSHIP, THE TWO NATIONS HAVE A ... HAVANA (AP) â€” After a euphoric month that left Americans dreaming of holidays in Havana and Cubans imag ining U.S. products at their corner stores, the first real effort at forging a new era was sobering: Much bitter disagreement still stands in the way of normal relations. Negotiations between seasoned Cuban diplomats and the highest-level U.S. delegation to visit the island in 35 years failed to produce a single significant agreement â€” beyond the need for more talks. As Roberta Jacob son, Americaâ€™s top diplomat for Latin America, told reporters, â€œItâ€™s very hard to say how exactly this will work.â€ The two days of discussions were hyped, starting hours after President Barack Obama declared in his State of the Union address that the new engagement effort had â€œthe potential to end a legacy of mistrust in our hemisphereâ€ and provided â€œnew hope for the future in Cuba.â€ Yet by Friday it appeared negotia tors hadnâ€™t even advanced Obamaâ€™s most basic objective: restoring diplo matic ties between the U.S. and Presi dent Raul Castroâ€™s government, with full-fledged embassies in each otherâ€™s capitals. On Thursday, Jacobson called reestablishing diplomatic relations a â€œrelatively straightforward process.â€ A day later, her Cuban counterpart suggested a central U.S. demand of unrestricted travel for U.S. diplomats was already being snarled in one of the most contentious points of the long-fraught U.S.-Cuban relationship â€” Washingtonâ€™s support for dissidents the Cuban government sees as mer cenaries seeking to undermine the communist system. Josefina Vidal, Cubaâ€™s top diplomat for the United States, said in an inter view with The Associated Press that U.S. support for dissidents is â€œaction that isnâ€™t acceptable for Cuba, and they know it.â€ Asked whether Cuba would allow U.S. diplomats to go where they want, she said, â€œfor Cuba, this consideration is associated with better behavior.â€ At its most fundamental level, the U.S.-Cuba divide comes down to sepa rate visions of where closer ties should lead. Jacobson said the U.S. goal is a Cuba that is â€œfree and democratic.â€ Vidal outlined an entirely different idea â€” that of two states with deep differ ences but no economic or diplomatic restrictions, like the relationship the U.S. enjoys with China. â€œI donâ€™t see why it is that difficult to have relations with Cuba,â€ Vidal said. This disconnect surfaced several times this week. At one point, the U.S. and Cuba dis agreed on whether human rights even had been discussed. LONG WAY TO GO Pro-Russian rebels reject peace deal, launch new offensive DONETSK, Ukraine (AP) â€” Pro-Russian rebels in eastern Ukraine rejected a previously signed peace deal Friday and launched a new multipronged offensive against Ukrainian govern ment troops, upending recent European attempts to medi ate an end to the fighting. The main separatist leader in the rebellious Donetsk region vowed to push Ukrainian soldiers out of the area and said insur gents would not take part in any more cease-fire talks. Another rebel went even fur ther, saying they would not abide by a peace deal signed in September. Separatist leader Alexan der Zakharchenko said rebel fighters went on the offensive to gain more territory and forestall a Ukrainian attack. He declared they would push government troops to the border of the Donetsk region and possibly beyond. â€œAttempts to talk about a cease-fire will no longer be undertaken by our side,â€ Zakharchenko said. The peace deal signed in September in the Belarusian capital of Minsk envisaged a cease-fire and a pullout of heavy weapons from a divi sion line in eastern Ukraine. It has been repeatedly vio lated by both sides, and heavy artillery and rocket barrages have increased the civilian death toll in the last few weeks. Foreign ministers from Russia, Ukraine, France and Germany agreed Wednes day to revive that division line, but fighting has con tinued unabated. The U.N. human rights agency on Fri day raised its estimate of the conflictâ€™s overall death toll to nearly 5,100 since April.
â€œItâ€™s second by second,â€ county traffic engineering manager Keith Bryant said. â€œThat platoon (of traffic) is, say, â€˜a minute away.â€™ The computer can surf the side streets, catch the platoon. If it didnâ€™t clear everything on (Back Beach Road), it will jump back to the side streets. The computer has the ability to do that and we canâ€™t do that. Back Beach Road is running more effi ciently than it has in the past.â€ Bryant said FDOT felt Back Beach Road would be an ideal place to try out the system. â€œBack Beach is especially problematic because you have the off-season traffic, that school traffic, and then when school lets out and the season begins, you have a lot of traffic accidents on the beach,â€ he said. â€œThe state wanted to run a test of the new product. There are a couple of different brands of this product now, and they wanted to test one of them, so they contacted us and asked us if weâ€™d be willing to accept the grant and put the system in for Back Beach Road and 23rd Street.â€ Bryant said the adaptive system should help traffic flow on Back Beach Road during Spring Break. â€œWeâ€™ve been watching,â€ said Bryant, who added that the system still was being calibrated. â€œWeâ€™re expect ing a 15 percent reduction in travel time. The computer, from what weâ€™ve seen, is doing a pretty good job.â€ FDOT paid $905,000 to deploy the â€œadaptive traf fic signal system,â€ which is being installed on 23rd Street in Panama City. â€œWeâ€™re putting the equip ment in the cabinetsâ€ on 23rd Street, he said. â€œNow youâ€™ll see a pole coming off the mast arms, but no cam era yet. Weâ€™ve got to get the cameras up.â€ How it works The adaptive signal sys tem works differently than the coordinated signal tim ing system the county uses at other major intersections. With the coordinated traf fic signal system, officials use traffic counts and other data to develop a signal-timing system that they hope will improve traffic flow. They then program that into the system and watch on cam eras whether it pans out in real life. They can adjust the light timing if it doesnâ€™t. â€œWe run models,â€ Bryant said. â€œUnless itâ€™s an emer gency situation, we donâ€™t randomly put timing out there. We donâ€™t sit here and throw it out in the field with out a lot of planned thought. Weâ€™ll collect traffic counts. There is a lot of math that goes into building models weâ€™re running up here.â€ Just after 7 a.m. Wednes day, county signal timing specialist Jerry Kearney was watching traffic at sig nals throughout the county at the Transportation Man agement Center on the sec ond floor of the government building. An entire wall in the 5,000-square-foot center is covered with cameras show ing traffic at major intersec tions. He was listening to a police scanner to learn of any possible accidents. Kearney can change the traffic light timing on the main corridors or side streets should an accident or other factors slow traffic. â€œYouâ€™ll have a crash where emergency respond ers will have to close so many lanes,â€ Bryant said. â€œLast week, there was a crash at Thomas Drive and (U.S.) 98, and it blocked all the traffic westbound, so when they cleared the lanes, these guys in here will put in timing to help move that traffic.â€ Kearney saw a thick blanket of fog at many traf fic lights Wednesday morn ing. It concerned him as traffic started to back up on the U.S. 98 going to Panama City Beach on the Hathaway Bridge. â€œIt looks like weâ€™re going to have to put up a sign,â€ he told Bryant. Kearney then turned on a switch that lighted a dynamic message board sign on 23rd Street to warn motorists of the fog. â€œWe can control the traf fic signals from this room,â€ Bryant said. â€œWe can send messages out to our dynamic message signs. We have two weather stations out in the field. We have one on the top of the Hathaway Bridge. We have one on the top of the West Bay Bridge.â€ The cameras on this day show traffic headed out to Panama City Beach was much more congested than headed into Panama City. Bryant sees the same pat terns every day. â€œItâ€™s definitely heavier going to the beach in the morning; we watch that,â€ Bryant said. â€œState Road 77, when school is in session, is very heavy with people com ing into town from the north side of the county, students going to Mosley, people com ing to work. Tyndall Parkway is very heavy with people going to the base in the morning. The base starts a little bit earlier then every body else. All of 15th (Street) is generally pretty busy, (as is) Back Beach Road.â€ County employees usu ally staff the traffic signal center from 6 a.m. until 6 p.m., but they work longer hours during Spring Break, Bryant said. He said they work closely with law enforcement to adjust light timing to get people in and out of events that attract large crowds, such as the Luke Bryan concert. â€œDuring the summer, weâ€™re here on Saturdays because traffic is a little heavier,â€ Bryant said. â€œDur ing special events on Spring Break, weâ€™re here a lot late into the night because you have different things hap pening at the beach â€” big parties releasing at night.â€ Andre w Ko rt z, M .D .

Staples came to the open house to express dis appointment in some of Grahamâ€™s decisions since the November victory over incumbent Rep. Steve Southerland of Panama City, he said. â€œIf I wanted someone who would vote for the Key stone pipeline, I wouldnâ€™t have campaigned for Gra ham,â€ Staples said. â€œI can understand voting across the aisle to break the grid lock, but some things you canâ€™t budge on.â€ However, some of Gra hamâ€™s constituents were not surprised by her recent votes and would be disap pointed if she had voted on party lines. Graham â€œcampaigned on the promise she would not vote along the party line,â€ said Mark Lipton, chairman of the Bay County Democratic party. Lipton said issues like the Keystone pipeline and a rollback of Wall Street reforms were compromises expected of Graham, and those votes could favor the Democratic base. â€œUnions favor the Key stone pipeline because it means work for them,â€ Lipton said. â€œIf you can minimize the hazards of the pipeline, it is a good compromise.â€ Graham said she has not been following which bills are Democratic or Republi can-slanted, but simply vot ing in the best interest of the Second District. â€œThereâ€™s not a perfect piece of legislation, but I look at the positives and negatives and thoughtfully vote in the best interest of my district,â€ Graham said. Graham, who serves on the House Armed Services Committee, toured Tyn dall earlier in the day with 325th Fighter Wing Com mander Col. Derek France and the Commander of the 1st Air Force, Lt. Gen. William Etter. The House Armed Services Committee is responsible for funding and overseeing the Depart ment of Defense and United States Armed Forces. On Fridayâ€™s tour, Graham lis tened to Col. France about how she can best repre sent the baseâ€™s interests in Congress. GRAHAM from page A1 HEATHER LEIPHART | The News Herald Rep.

Brady Calhoun, Editorial Page Editor 747-5075 | @sbradycalhoun firstname.lastname@example.org FROM THE LEFT FROM THE RIGHT YOUR VIEW S By MICHAEL REA G AN I didnâ€™t watch the State of the Union address Tuesday night. Instead I sat with my lovely wife, had a glass of wine and played with the dogs. But let me guess how it went. President Obama stood in front of Congress and declared the state of the union is strong â€” except for a whole bunch of new government freebies and new federal laws he wants to see enacted to make it even stronger. To pander to his liberal Democrat base, he promised his usual wish list of unrealistic ideas that not three Republicans in the House and Senate will support. He called for Congress to mandate paid sick leave for workers. He promised to close the gender gap on wages. He called for a hike in the national minimum wage. He didnâ€™t promise to make everyone in the middle class a millionaire. But he said he was going to ask Congress to pass this yearâ€™s special treat â€” â€œa bold new planâ€ for Congress to make community college free for anyone who wants it. The president is supposed to be so brilliant. So why does he continue to believe that community college â€” or ObamaCare, or food stamps, or subsidized loans, or quality day care, or anything else the federal government gives us â€” is free? Itâ€™s cynical politics, pure and simple. He knows nothing is free. He knows someone is paying for those federal goodies â€” and that someone is the hardworking American taxpayer. Iâ€™m sure the State of Union was the same bad TV show I saw last year and the four years before that. It was all about class warfare, about the rich taking from the poor, about $320 billion in more taxes. Iâ€™m really, really tired of hearing the same stuff all the time. I understand he didnâ€™t even mention the words â€œal-Qaeda.â€ Guess whatâ€™s going on in Yemen right now didnâ€™t come up on his radar screen. Iâ€™m so tired of this president. He is so overdone. Heâ€™s so partisan. Heâ€™s so cocksure that he has saved the economy with his gigantic deficits and heâ€™ll save the middle class with his latest giveaways. Heâ€™s the president but he still runs around the country like heâ€™s still campaigning for something. On Wednesday he flew into Idaho, one of the reddest of the red states, to push his awful State of the Union themes. Does he ever stop talking? Every time you turn on the TV, heâ€™s talking, talking, talking. Itâ€™s like, â€œO my God, will you please just shut up. Please. Shut up. For two days.â€ Mr. President, Iâ€™ll be so glad when your next two years are over. Iâ€™m really tired of seeing your face, hearing your voice and being bombarded by your â€œprogressiveâ€ New Deal ideas â€” which always give more money and power to Washington when what we need is less. Mr. President, when will you ever stop thinking up new laws that Congress will not pass? We need fewer laws, not more. Iâ€™m for passing just one new law in 2015 â€” a law setting up a part-time Congress. They spend too much time in DC. They think because theyâ€™re there everyday they have to keep passing more laws. And every time they pass one, it hurts everyoneâ€™s personal economy, the national economy and the world economy. Mr. President, you say the state of union is looking good. But thatâ€™s because you and your media friends are living in a bubble of fantasy. The reality, according to a recent NBC poll, is that nearly 60 percent of the country believes weâ€™re on the wrong track. By C ONNIE SCHULTZ Months before Caitlin Johnson graduated from high school, she opened Ohio State Universityâ€™s early-decision letter and felt the doors open wide. For as long as she could remember, sheâ€™d wanted to go to OSUâ€™s veterinary school. She was on her way. But on the drive home with her parents after visiting the campus, she heard the doors slam shut. â€œIt was a sobering visit,â€ she said. â€œIt was so expensive. We knew there was no way I could do it without ending up with a mountain of debt before I even started vet school.â€ About the same time, she got an unsolicited letter from Lorain County Community College in Northeast Ohio, where she lived. Her academic and extracurricular records qualified her for a two-year full scholarship to the college. â€œI put the letter in the trash,â€ she said. â€œNo way was I going to a community college. I was afraid it would hurt my chances of getting into vet school.â€ Fortunately, maternal wisdom â€” abetted by a healthy dose of nosiness â€” intervened. â€œMoms being moms, my mom found the letter in the trash,â€ Johnson said. â€œShe said: â€˜Youâ€™re going. Theyâ€™re giving you more than the cost of an education.â€™â€ Reluctantly, Johnson enrolled in 2007. In May, she will graduate from Ohio Stateâ€™s veterinary school, and she already has a job with a rural practice. â€œAll my credits transferred,â€ she said. â€œAnd the classes were so challenging. A lot of the instructors were retired from larger universities.â€ She laughed. â€œAround the time I was taking organic chemistry, I knew LCCC was as tough as Ohio State.â€ Earlier this month, President Barack Obama announced a plan that would provide tuition-free classes at community colleges for students who attend at least half time, maintain a minimum GPA of 2.5 and make steady progress toward a degree. Predictably, Republicans and conservative commentators have lambasted this idea, often to the point of ridicule. From last weekâ€™s Wall Street Journal editorial: â€œCommunity colleges ... attempt to narrow the skills gap for high-school graduates who donâ€™t attend four-year colleges. The schools vary widely in quality, and in practice they often provide remedial training in basic math and reading skills to kids who were promoted through failing K-12 schools.â€ As for that 2.5 GPA? â€œYou have to work hard not to get that grade.â€ There is so much wrong with this attitude, starting with the description of people who attend community colleges and why. Ken Phillippe, who oversees research at the American Association of Community Colleges in Washington, D.C., said there are many narratives about college students that are as false as they are enduring. Only 15 percent of students at four-year colleges, for example, are full-time and living on campus, he said. The average age nationally for a community college student is 29; the median age is 23. About 8 percent of them already have four-year degrees and enroll for additional training. As for this notion that community college students are mostly remedially challenged kids tumbling straight from failed tenures in high school? â€œThatâ€™s a frequent misperception,â€ Phillippe said. â€œTheyâ€™ve never visited a community college. They havenâ€™t met any of the students.â€ Nationally, the remedial rate for community college students is high, about 60 percent. At some urban community colleges, such as Cuyahoga Community College in Cleveland, the percentage climbs to 90, but spokesman John Horton is quick to caution against assumptions. â€œIf you havenâ€™t been to school in decades, itâ€™s a shock,â€ he said. â€œYou should see how hard they work once they get here.â€ Phillippe agrees. â€œIt often takes only one class to get them ready. And keep in mind, a third of them are the first in their families to go to college.â€ At Tri-C, 65 percent of the nearly 60,000 students enrolled attend part time. â€œLife gets messy,â€ Horton said. â€œA lot of these students are furthering their education while juggling all of their other responsibilities with jobs and families.â€ Or, to put it another way, they arenâ€™t Wall Street Journal editorial board members. A quick review of their online bios reveals an abundance of degrees from Yale, Harvard, Dartmouth, Northwestern, Georgetown, the University of Chicago and Oxford University. I have no grievance with these revered institutions. Two of our children are Ivy League graduates. My beef is with those whose leave them with a sense of privilege that blinds them to how most Americans struggle and fuels a sense of superiority at the very thought of them. When I asked Caitlin Johnson what kind of students she met at community college, she laughed again. â€œThe better question is, â€˜Who didnâ€™t I meet?â€™ There were people straight out of high school and those who were returning for second careers. There were a lot of people older and smarter than I am.â€ I asked this bright young woman whether maybe â€œwiserâ€ is the better word. â€œMaybe,â€ she said. â€œAll I know is that long before I realized it, they were getting me ready to be a vet for everyone.â€ The State of the Bubble address Unraveling the myths of community college L uke Bryan to return to #P C B for #SB2K15. #P C B2K15 Ashley Kelly I work both days!

Iâ€™ve gotten out of debt and fallen back in several times. I want to get control of my money and stop busting my budget. How do I keep from falling back again? Sandi Dear Sandi, It sounds like youâ€™ve taken a serious look at your situation, and youâ€™re smart enough to know itâ€™s not working and you want to do things differently. Well, this is a great time of the year for changes! Years ago when I crashed and burned financially there were a few strong emotions that spurred me toward change. One of those was disgust. I realized that what I was doing was stupid, and that I was tired of living that way. I made a conscious, proactive decision that things were going to be different. The second emotion was fear. I was scared to death that Iâ€™d be broke for the rest of my life. I donâ€™t think you should ever live your life in fear, but a reasonable, healthy level of fear can be a terrific motivator. The third thing was contentment. Marketers try to sell us on the idea that weâ€™ll be happier if we just go out and buy things. When we have this stuff crammed down our throats all day long, rapid-fire, it can affect our level and perception of contentment. One of the practical things I did was to stop going places where I was tempted to spend money. When you have to go out, make a list of only the things you need and take just enough cash with you to make the purchase. Spending money on a bunch of stuff you donâ€™t need, and probably donâ€™t really want, isnâ€™t going to bring you contentment. â€”Dave Whoâ€™s the boss? Dear Dave, Iâ€™m trying to get out of debt, but it seems like something unexpected always happens to knock me back down. Iâ€™m single, make $45,000 a year, and I have $12,000 in debt, in addition to a mortgage payment of $1,124 a month. Iâ€™ve been trying to live on a budget, but I still donâ€™t know where all the money goes. Anonymous Dear Anonymous, For starters, your house payment is kind of heavy. I always recommend that your monthly mortgage payment be no more than 25 percent of your take-home pay. Still, the biggest thing is that youâ€™ve got to get control of your money instead of letting it control you. I want you to sit down every month, before the next month begins, and write it all down on paper, on purpose. Give every single dollar a name, and tell your money what to do. Once youâ€™ve done this, the idea of â€œtrying to live on a budgetâ€ stops being some vague idea floating around out there and becomes a real game plan for your money! â€”Dave Dave Ramsey has authored five New York Times best-selling books, and his radio show is heard by more than 8 million listeners each week on more than 500 radio stations. Dave Ramsey Dave Says Avoid going places where you will be tempted McDonaldâ€™s earnings fall, change coming NEW YORK (AP) â€” McDonaldâ€™s isnâ€™t lovinâ€™ it, and itâ€™s going to do some thing about it. The worldâ€™s largest ham burger chain reported fall ing earnings and sales for its fourth quarter on Friday and says it is going to take action this year to save money and bring customers back. This includes slowing down new restaurant openings in some markets. Itâ€™s also making changes to its menu and looking to offer customers more options to customize their burgers. But the fast-food giant said its problems wonâ€™t be fixed overnight: It expects sales to remain weak through the first half of this year while it deals with the fallout from a food-safety scandal in China, global eco nomic uncertainty and shift ing tastes among diners. While it works to rev sales back up, itâ€™s cutting major investments. McDonaldâ€™s plans just over 1,000 res taurant openings this year, down from 1,300 last year. â€œWe believe this lower level of capital spending is prudent while we work to regain our business momen tum and improve the sales and profitability at our more than 36,000 restaurants around the world,â€ Chief Financial Officer Peter Bensen said. Worldwide sales at loca tions open at least 13 months edged down 0.9 percent on weaker traffic. In the U.S., the met ric declined 1.7 percent on fewer customer visits, tough competition and increased expenses. The performance was an improvement though, as the figure fell 3.3 percent globally and in the U.S. in the third quarter. The Oak Brook, Illinoisbased company is dealing with competition on a num ber of fronts, including con venience stores that are selling more food and smaller chains such as Chipotle that market themselves as being of higher quality. In hopes of changing nega tive perceptions about its food, McDonaldâ€™s recently invited customers to ask questions about its ingredients and sourcing. It also launched a new marketing campaign intended to play up the â€œlov ingâ€ in its â€œIâ€™m Lovinâ€™ Itâ€ slo gan and associate its name with that positive emotion.

At the Bay County Chamberâ€™s Annual Awards Ceremony and Din ner, Southerland was awarded the prestigious Lauren Merriam Award for his lifelong commitment to bet tering the community through civic and charitable endeavors. â€œI love Bay County with all my heart,â€ Southerland said as he accepted the award from 1989 win ner Ted Haney. â€œNo one receives an award so special without hav ing a life intersected with incredible people.â€ Southerland is the 38th recipient of the award, given in memory of the late Lauren Merriam, a past cham ber president and leader known for his wit and passion for improving Bay County. The recipient is cho sen annually by a committee of past award winners. â€œThe purest form of leadership is servant leadership. Lauren Mer riam was a servant leader,â€ said Southerland, who learned of Merri amâ€™s legacy while serving on various chamber boards and committees. â€œCommunities must have ser vant leaders, and Bay County has been so blessed to have servant leaders over the years that quietly touched others and made a differ ence,â€ he said. Southerland wasnâ€™t the only hon oree at Fridayâ€™s ceremony. Philomena Martrain of Legend ary Marine received the Chamberâ€™s Member of the Year Award for her commitment and service as an ambassador for the organization. Bill Fenimore, chairman of the 2014 Military Affairs Committee, received a bronze eagle for his involvement as a liaison between the military and civilian community. As 2014 Chamber Chairman Larry Carroll reflected on the past yearâ€™s accomplishments, the night was also filled with a look into the future as Carroll passed the gavel to new Chairman Andrew Levy, an attorney with Harrison Sale McCloy. â€œI can feel and see the turn in the community â€” not only in the number of real estate closings and businesses opening, but also in the way the community is starting to focus on issues beyond merely sur viving,â€ Levy said. â€œPeople are lift ing their heads and recognizing that we need to and can work together in ways that may have eluded us in the past.â€ Andrew Levy accepts a gavel from Larry Carroll at the Chamber dinner.

GCSC President John Holdnak said the free college announcement comes from an administration thatâ€™s had good ideas about higher edu cation over the years, adding that Obama has been support ive of community colleges as a stimulus for the economy. He hopes Congress can get behind the plan for free tuition. If they donâ€™t, Holdnak said, the idea may go into the category of great ideas that were never funded, and he doesnâ€™t think tuition reform should be a par tisan issue. â€œItâ€™s not a partisan issue,â€ he said. â€œIt is a SAN FRANCISCO (AP) â€” Jeb Bush is offering pol icy prescriptions to boost the countryâ€™s lagging middle class as he edges toward a presidential campaign. The former Florida gover nor said Friday that political leaders need to overhaul the countryâ€™s immigration and education systems, increase job training programs and ease energy regulations to spur economic growth. Bush outlined his policy agenda in a speech to the annual convention of the National Automobile Deal ers Association. It was his first public appearance since announcing his plans to explore a White House bid last month. In wide-ranging remarks that tweaked President Obama and congressional leaders, Bush said success would depend on foster ing a â€œclimate of consen sus and compromiseâ€ in Washington. While Bush remained noncommittal about his 2016 decision, he has already started laying the groundwork for a potential campaign.

AHCA plans to close Panama City field office Staff and Wire Reports PANAMA CITY â€” With Flor ida now enrolling most Medicaid beneficiaries in managed-care plans, the Agency for Health Care Administration (AHCA) plans to close three field offices this sum mer, including the Panama City site, Secretary Liz Dudek told lawmakers. The agency last year closed field offices in Tallahassee and Ocala and plans additional clo sures in West Palm Beach, Pan ama City and Alachua. The local office will close in June. Eight local employees will be affected. The agency will pro vide the employees with career counseling and rsum assis tance, according to AHCA. In the state, 45 employees will be let go to accommodate changes to the statewide Medicaid program. The local field office serves 14 counties in the Panhandle. After it closes, Medicaid recipi ents can still contact the state number, 800-226-7690, and file complaints at https://apps.ahca. myflorida.com/smmc_cirts . The agency is responsible for the stateâ€™s Medicaid pro gram and licensing the stateâ€™s 45,000 health care facilities, among other duties. Dudek also told the Senate Health and Human Services Appropriations Subcommittee the agency is looking at trimming other jobs, such as some tempo rary employees â€” known in state government as â€œother personal servicesâ€ employees. The agency last year carried out a 2011 law that has led to about 3 million Medicaid beneficiaries enrolling in HMOs and other types of managed-care plans. That sig nificantly changed the way many health providers are paid for Med icaid services. The managed-care plans contract with doctors and other providers, scaling back the role of the agency. â€œThe reality is we donâ€™t have jobs for all of the employees that we had,â€ Dudek said, adding that the agency will help the officesâ€™ employees with such things as job placement and training. Subcommittee Chairman Rene Garcia, R-Hialeah, acknowledged the need for reorganization. â€œI hate having the conversa tion about getting rid of employ ees,â€ Garcia said. â€œBut the reality is with the fiscal constraints that weâ€™re facing or on the horizon, I believe we need to find some efficiencies.â€ News Herald writer Ben Kle ine and The News Service of Flor ida contributed to this report ALYSS A W A TFO R D THE FUTURE looking to What Obamaâ€™s college proposal might mean for Gulf Coast State Wanted!

Rick Scott. Scott, during a visit to the Univer sity of North Florida in Jacksonville, said he wants to exempt all text books used by students from state and local sales taxes. The stateâ€™s sales tax is 6 cents on the dollar. â€œWe must continue to make the dream of earning a college educa tion attainable for every student,â€ Scott said in a statement. â€œElimi nating the sales tax on college text books will directly help every Florida student with the cost of college.â€ The Scott administration esti mates the tax break could save a fulltime student as much as $60 a year, which assumes they are spend ing up to $1,000 on textbooks. The tax break is expected to cost more than $41 million if the Florida Legis lature goes along with the idea. Scott said last year on the cam paign 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 stateâ€™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, cell phones and traditional phone lines. Right now the state has a pro jected budget windfall of roughly $1 billion for the coming year. Sen. Tom Lee, R-Brandon, and the Senate budget chairman, said that he generally supports the taxcutting proposals being suggested by the governor. But Lee also said he was unsure if lawmakers will have enough money to cover the full cost of Scottâ€™s pro posals while also boosting spending on schools and the environment. Scott on Thursday also said that he wants legislators to set $23.5 mil lion to expand Floridaâ€™s popular Bright Futures college scholarship program so it will cover summer classes. The program, which is paid from the sales of lottery tickets, pro vides scholarships to Florida stu dents who graduate high school with good grades. 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. Watford was one of six suspects arrested in connec tion with the shooting and the fourth to agree to testify against Jackson. Joshua Heath Smith, 23, already agreed to tell jurors how he and Jackson allegedly armed them selves and formulated the robbery plot. Three survivors of the July 10 shooting at the Club Apartments, at 325 Richard Jackson Blvd., allegedly tried to cover their tracks and were arrested, according to police records. Joseph Cannizzo, 26, initially portrayed himself as a witness when police arrived at about 1 a.m. to find Brooks face down on the asphalt with multiple gunshot wounds. Cannizzo said he pulled into the apartments shortly after the gunfire. He saw a white Kia Forte speed away and a person running into the woods north of the lot before flagging down a taxi to call 911, he told police. However, that isnâ€™t how Smith has sworn the shooting transpired. Cannizzo and Brooks allegedly waited in a green SUV in the Club parking lot for Smith to conduct the deal for about 2 ounces of marijuana. Smithâ€™s girlfriend, Watford, previously had dated Brooks and arranged the transaction between the two, according to Smithâ€™s sworn testimony. Smith and Jackson allegedly discussed beforehand how they would show up armed and get the drop on Brooks, Smith said, but they didnâ€™t anticipate the people they planned to ambush also would be aiming to rob them, according to officials. Jackson waited behind in the deeply tinted Kia Forte as Smith brought the money into Brooksâ€™ green SUV. Cannizzo allegedly drew a gun on Smith â€” ordering Smith to drop his pants, where his gun was stored. Brooks then stepped out and walked over to search the Kia, Smith said. Neither Brooks nor Cannizzo knew Jackson was in the car, Smith said, until several flashes lit the interior and gunfire roared from within. Smith fled on foot through the woods as Cannizzo ran to his injured friend, firing on the Kia as it sped off, police reported. Brooks would die face down on the asphalt shortly thereafter as helicopters began circling in the night sky and authorities started piecing together the brutal crime scene. Most of the people involved before and after the shoot ing have agreed to testify. Clinton Robert Allen, 34, who accepted the alleged murder weapon from Jackson, has pleaded and received four yearsâ€™ probation in exchange for testifying in the case. Nichole Philbrook, 26, has pleaded and been sen tenced to three yearsâ€™ probation for tampering with physical evidence and attempting to cover up for Can nizzo, her boyfriend. Cannizzo has since been involved in an out-of-state car wreck and suffered neck and brain injuries. His plea offer was extended until he is healthy enough to appear in court. Smithâ€™s plea agreement calls for 10 years in prison for being a principal to third-degree murder with a firearm, but he will await sentencing in January as insurance he does not back out of his testimony, according to court documents. Prosecutors initially offered Jackson 25 years in prison in exchange for a no contest plea. However, that agree ment was revoked after a jailhouse letter from Jackson to Smith came to light. Jurors are scheduled to be selected for the trial Monday. ROBBERY from Page B1 OCALA (AP) â€” The assistant warden at a north Florida womenâ€™s prison has been fired following allegations that he had inappropri ate relationships with some of the inmates and threatened members of his staff. Marty Martinez was fired last week from Lowell Correctional Insti tution, the Florida Department of Corrections reported. He is among 44 prison staff mem bers who have been dismissed since new DOC Secretary Julie Jones took over the agency Jan. 5. â€œThe Department has zero toler ance for misconduct of any kind,â€ spokesman McKinley Lewis said in a written statement. According to a 56-page inspec tor general report, Martinez was commonly referred to by his favor ite inmates as â€œMartyâ€ or â€œDaddyâ€ and would spend extended periods talking to young, pretty white or Hispanic women on a daily basis, sometimes in open areas and other times in his locked office where they would remain for up to an hour. Guards and inmates told investigators that Martinez rarely spoke to inmates who were unattractive. When guards came into conflict with inmates known to be close to Martinez, the inmates would threaten to tell the assistant warden, the report stated. At one point, female guards uncomfortable with Martinezâ€™s behavior reported him to Warden Gus Mazarra. Mazarra told the guards he was unaware of Martinezâ€™s conduct but promised to look into it, the report stated. Mazarra remains in com mand at the prison. The Miami Herald reported that the six-month investigation began after one guard reported Martinez to the Marion County Sheriffâ€™s Office. The guard said Martinez had physically threatened him after he found contraband while conduct ing a search of two of Martinezâ€™s â€œgirlfriends.â€ No telephone number for Marti nez could be found.

John Thomas Quirk On Jan. 20th, the angels welcomed a smiling face as they sang their peaceful songs to welcome in Michael Darryl Swinney into Heaven. He was American Indian born on April 29th, 1964, in Atlanta, Ga.. He moved to Panama City, Fla., where he met the love of his life, Edith Swinney, with whom he raised four amazing sons. Michael lived life fast and to its fullest. He loved chewing Red Man, fast cars, and good times. He was a very caring person and could light up a room with his charismatic personality. He was no saint, but truly wanted the best for everyone around him. He was a wonderful provider, a loving father, husband, brother, and friend to all. Anyone who has met him would agree you never forget someone like Mike, as he was often called by his friends. His lively spirit brought endless smiles in his time with us. In his off time, he enjoyed watching movies... â€œSmokey and the Banditâ€ and the â€œRockyâ€ series were among some of his favorites to watch with his sons. His family never went without and enjoyed every moment spent with him. He was the kind of guy who could fix anything and was a true natural at anything he did. He was a successful entrepreneur with businesses in excavating and mobile home moving. Even before those adventures, he was successful starting out as a pool man for Cox Pools before moving on to semitruck driver, crane operator, and diesel mechanic. His love for life was unmatched and was a joy to be around. He was truly taken too soon by this tragic accident which took his life while working. We will not mourn his death as he passes from flesh to the heavens but celebrate his life as Mike would have wanted. He had planned on working hard for 10 more years so he could retire and rest. Now you can rest in peace, Michael Swinney, you have earned it. We love you always and you will be missed forever. Michael is survived by his wife of 35 years, Edith Swinney, his five sons: Ryan (Allie), Chris, Kevin (Veronica), Brandon, and Darryl, his brother Marshall and sister Sharon, and four grandkids: Landin, Madison, Maddox, and Chris Jr. Funeral services will be held at 2 p.m., Wednesday, Jan. 28, 2015. at Kent-Forest Lawn Funeral Home, 2403 Harrison Avenue, Panama City with Reverend Darwin Glass officiating.

C ontact email@example.com Expert: BP can afford $13.7B NEW ORLEANS (AP) â€” A financial expert testifying for the government Friday said BP is financially able to pay a Clean Water Act penalty as high as $13.7 billion â€” the maxi mum federal authorities are seeking from the oil giant for the 2010 Gulf of Mexico oil spill. Ian Ratner testified Friday for the U.S. government. The Times-Picayune reported that Ratnerâ€™s analysis shows BPâ€™s assets totaled $315 billion on June 30, 2014, up from $236 billion the year before the spill. BP attorney Matthew Regan suggested Ratner over looked the short-term impact a fine would have on the companyâ€™s operations. He also questioned Ratnerâ€™s deci sion to examine the finances of both BP XP and its parent group, BP PLC. BP XP, the defendant in the case, is the subsidiary that operated the Macondo well. Ratner said it would be improper for the court to con sider BP XP as operating â€œin a vacuum.â€ The BP group lends money to BP XP and provides it capital, he said. â€œYou have to look at the whole,â€ Ratner said. â€œYou canâ€™t look at the right hand without looking at the left hand.â€ Attorneys for both BP and Anadarko â€” a minority part ner in the well, fighting government calls for more than $1 billion in penalties â€” also focused on falling oil prices. Regan said Ratnerâ€™s analysis was made last summer, when oil prices were still above $90 per barrel. Oil prices were around $45 per barrel on Friday afternoon. Ratner said BP and other oil companies are prepared to weather low oil prices. Ratner, a partner at GlassRatner Advisory & Capital Group based in Atlanta, was the final witness called by the government during the first week of the penalty phase of the civil trial over the 2010 oil spill. The trial began Tuesday. It resumes Monday, when BP begins calling witnesses. A ruling from U.S. District Judge Carl Barbier is not expected until after final briefs are filed in April. The Justice Department spent the past four days outlin ing why BP XP deserves to pay the maximum penalty of $13.7 billion, which translates into $4,300 per barrel of oil spilled. BP is fighting for a lower penalty, closer to the $3.19 billion statutory minimum. bipartisan issue.â€ Most new jobs in the future will require some level of education after high school, he added. Holdnak feels the tuition change would be good for students, but he said itâ€™s too early to predict the planâ€™s chances of approval. While he said itâ€™s too early to worry about details of implementation, he said colleagues he has talked to at other colleges were con cerned about the details, including the cost to the states. Obamaâ€™s proposal requires states to put up 25 percent of the cost, with the federal government covering 75 percent. Other critics have pointed to the proposalâ€™s source of funding, such as taxing certain college sav ing plans. The presidents of two other area community col leges, Chipola College in Marianna and Northwest Florida State College in Niceville, both mentioned their concerns about the cost the state might incur. â€œI am in favor of any ini tiative that provides more students with access to college and technical edu cation,â€ Chipola President Jason Hurst said. â€œBut I am concerned about where we would find state dol lars to support this new program.â€ Hurst said the 28 com munity colleges in the state college system were â€œalready operating very efficiently to make higher education affordable to everyone,â€ adding about 60 percent of Chipolaâ€™s 1,200 students receive some type of financial aid from vari ous sources. At Northwest Florida State, which has a campus in South Walton County, President Ty Handy said the plan is a â€œreal tough pill to swallow for the state Legislature.â€ However, Handy did say the overall message was positive, adding he was pleased the president rec ognized the value of local education. How students would react to free tuition is a con cern, Handy said, adding students may not appreci ate a college education as much if it were free. Overall, Handy said he is not overly optimistic about the planâ€™s approval, giving it â€œless than a 50-50 chance.â€ COLLEGE from Page B1 HEATHER LEIPHART | The News Herald Gulf State students study together in the library on Friday.
LOCA L & STATE Page B4 | The News Herald | Saturday, January 24, 2015 CAPE CANAVERAL (AP) â€” Itâ€™s showtime for Pluto. NASAâ€™s New Horizons spacecraft has traveled 3 billion miles and is near ing the end of its nine-year journey to Pluto. Sunday, it begins photographing the mysterious, unexplored, icy world once deemed a planet. The first pictures will reveal little more than bright dots â€” New Horizons is still more than 100 mil lion miles from Pluto. But the images, taken against star fields, will help scien tists gauge the remaining distance and keep the baby grand piano-sized robot on track for a July flyby. It is humanityâ€™s first trip to Pluto, and scientists are eager to start exploring. â€œNew Horizons has been a mission of delayed grati fication in many respects, and itâ€™s finally happening now,â€ said project scientist Hal Weaver of Johns Hop kins Universityâ€™s Applied Physics Laboratory. â€œItâ€™s going to be a sprint for the next seven months, basically, to the finish line,â€ he said Friday. â€œWe canâ€™t wait to turn Pluto into a real world, instead of just a little pixelated blob.â€ Launched from Cape Canaveral in January 2006 on a $700 million mission, New Horizons awoke from its last hibernation period early last month. Flight controllers have spent the past several weeks getting the spacecraft ready for the final but most important leg of its journey. â€œWe have been work ing on this project, some people, for over a quarter of their careers, to make this mission happen,â€ said proj ect manager Glen Fountain of the Applied Physics Lab, â€œand now weâ€™re about to hit the mother lode.â€ The spacecraftâ€™s longrange reconnaissance imager will take hundreds of pictures of Pluto over the coming months. It snapped pictures last summer, before going into hibernation, but these new ones should be considerably brighter. It will be a few days before the new images are beamed back to Earth; scientists expect to release them publicly in early February. By May, New Horizonsâ€™ photos should equal and then surpass the ones taken by the Hubble Space Telescope, with pictures of the plutoid and its moons improving with each pass ing day. The real payoff will come when New Horizons flies by Pluto on July 14 at a dis tance of 7,700 miles and speed of nearly 31,000 mph. It will whip past Charon, Plutoâ€™s largest moon, from 18,000 miles out. Scientists have no idea, really, what Pluto looks like way out in the Kuiper Belt beyond Neptuneâ€™s orbit, home to little icy objects galore. Pluto is the biggest object in the Kuiper Belt. Together with mega-moon, Charon, roughly half Plutoâ€™s size, the two orbs could fit inside the United States with room to spare. Five moons have been found so far around Pluto. More could be lurking out there, awaiting discov ery by New Horizons. The Applied Physics Lab in Laurel, Maryland, designed and built New Horizons, and is now manag ing the mission for NASA. Pluto was still officially a planet, No. 9 in the solar sys tem lineup, when New Hori zons departed Earth. It was the only planet in our solar system yet to be explored. But seven months later, the International Astronomical Union stripped Pluto of its planethood, classifying it instead as a dwarf planet. Later came the term, plutoid. Some scientists are hop ing Plutoâ€™s upcoming closeup â€” and expected cosmic buzz â€” may prompt the group to reverse its deci sion. The nature of science, after all, is fluid, as even the astronomical union maintains. Streator, Illinois, â€” hometown of Plutoâ€™s discoverer, the late astron omer Clyde Tombaugh â€” already has declared 2015 the â€œYear of Pluto.â€ Tombaugh spotted Pluto in 1930. New Horizons may, indeed, â€œturn the tide in some peopleâ€™s opinions into the other camp,â€ Weaver said. â€œBut thatâ€™s not really so important.â€ More important, he said, is finding out â€œwhat does Pluto really look like.â€ * Pr escription appetite suppr essant * Vi tamin & fat bur ner injections * EKG & blood analysis * Eat wise...dr op a size!â€ * E-mail: Angela@ re solutionsweightlosscenter .com Resolutions We ight Loss Center 1212 W. 23rd St. Pa nama City , FL 32405 (850) 91 3-0 00 2 MEDIC AL WEIGHT LO SS Okaloosa sheriff allays concerns over deaths The Daily News Local NAACP President Ray Nelson met with Okaloosa County Sheriff Larry Ashley on Friday to discuss concerns about the unresolved deaths of three black men since late November. Nelson said he came away satisfied that the deaths are unrelated. â€œSheriff Ashley has assured us these are three separate cases with no correlation,â€ Nelson said. â€œAt this point, we accept that.â€ Following the morning meeting, the Sheriffâ€™s Office issued a news release repeating that the deaths â€œare three separate incidents with no connection.â€ While the news release provided no new information about the Jan. 21 homicide of 18-year-old Mark Anthony Williams, it did shed some new light on the two other deaths. It said preliminary indications from the 1st Judicial Circuit medical examinerâ€™s office indicate â€œprobable drowningâ€ in the death of a man whose body washed up Jan. 18 at the Gulf Islands National Seashore park on Okaloosa Island. The man, believed to be between 30 and 40 years old, is yet to be identified. Dental records are being used to determine who he is. Destin teenager Jonha Campbellâ€™s 10-day disappearance was solved Nov. 30 when his body was found in the Gulf of Mexico, also off Okaloosa Island. The Sheriffâ€™s Office, which originally had called Campbellâ€™s death â€œsuspicious,â€ expanded on that Friday and said it â€œdid not involve natural causes.â€ The Sheriffâ€™s Office defended its policy of releasing few details about the cases. â€œDetails of active cases are not released due to the need to protect the integrity of information,â€ the news release said. â€œBut all will ultimately become public record at the appropriate time or at the conclusion of the investigation.â€ The NAACPâ€™s Nelson said he went to Ashley to discuss the three deaths because the community he represents â€œhad great concernsâ€ about how little information was being communicated through local media. â€œWe wanted to ensure there was no correlation between the three cases,â€ he said. â€œWe werenâ€™t seeing any evidence that there wasnâ€™t a person or people attacking young black men.â€ Pluto ready for its close-up AP This combination of images made by NASAâ€™s Hubble Space Telescope in 2002 and 2003 shows Pluto at different angles. NASAâ€™s New Horizons spacecraft is nearing the end of its nine-year voyage to Pluto, and has just over 100 million miles to go before getting there in July 2015. Starting Sunday, it will begin photographing the mysterious, unexplored, icy world once deemed a planet. Milton man pleads guilty to shooting, killing friend over drunken dare The Daily News MILTON â€” A man who allegedly shot an acquaintance on a dare, believing the gun to be empty, pleaded to charges of manslaughter Friday. James Hunter Gates was arrested Aug. 25, 2014, after a night of drinking with 24-year-old Romeo Wolff, according to his arrest report from the Santa Rosa County Sheriffâ€™s Office. Deputies found an empty bottle of rum and beer cans at the scene, the report said. Gates, 20, said Wolff had put a shell in Gatesâ€™ shotgun and then ejected a shell. Wolff then put the barrel of the shotgun under his chin and said something to the effect of â€œbet you wonâ€™t pull it,â€ according to the report. Gates pulled the trigger, not remembering that a shell still was in the gun, the report said. Wolff was pronounced dead at the scene at 10:32 p.m. Gates pleaded Friday to charges of manslaughter with a firearm and possession of a firearm by a convicted delinquent, according to the State Attorneyâ€™s office. Santa Rosa County Circuit Court Judge John Miller ordered a presentence investigation and scheduled a sentencing hearing for March 17. Gates faces up to 45 years in prison. From staff reports LEITCHFIELD, Ky. Teen accused in crime spree charged with statutory rape One of two teenagers suspected in a multi-state crime spree of stolen vehicles and pilfered checks has returned to Kentucky to face several charges, including statutory rape. Local news outlets report that 18-year-old Dalton Hayes was crying during his arraignment Thursday afternoon at the Grayson County courthouse. He pleaded not guilty to statutory rape, custodial interference, criminal mischief, trespassing, theft and burglary. He was appointed a public defender and given a $250,000 cash bond. Hayes was arrested in Panama City Beach on Saturday night, two weeks after he disappeared with his 13-year-old girlfriend. Authorities say they suspect the pair stole vehicles and wrote stolen checks while they were on the run. The girl is expected to face charges in juvenile court. LYNN HAVEN Man charged with cellphone voyeurism Police have arrested a man for allegedly taping a nude underage girl from outside her bedroom window, the Lynn Haven Police Department announced Friday. Bobby Louis Mayes, 40, of Lynn Haven has been charged with video voyeurism. The investigation started when police where advised that Mayes had shown photographs on his cellular phone of a nude juvenile girl that appeared to be asleep to numerous friends and co-workers, officers reported. Investigators identified the girl and learned the photos Mayes had shown were taken from outside her bedroom window while she was asleep without her consent or knowledge, police said. Mayes, of 1503 New Jersey Ave., was arrested Friday and taken to the Bay County jail. PANAMA CITY Crash leaves woman with head injury Police have released the condition of a mother who was left with â€œincapacitatingâ€ injuries after she was hit by a car Thursday evening while pushing her child in a stroller. Katrina Zakarchenco, 33, suffered head injuries in the crash. Her 3-year-old had â€œpossibleâ€ injuries, according to a Panama City Police Department crash report. They were taken to a local hospital for treatment. Megan Tiffany Crafton, 24, was driving a 2010 Nissan Murano about 6:20 p.m. when she stopped at the 11th Street light to make a left turn onto Frankford Avenue while Zakarchenco was waiting to cross Frankford. Crafton got a green turn arrow. However, Zakarchenco began to push the stroller cross the road, police reported. According to officers, Crafton struck Zakarchenco and the child in the crosswalk. The stroller was knocked over and Zakarchenco was carried on the hood of the car for about 15 feet. Crafton, of Chipley, was charged with failure to yield the right of way to a pedestrian.

The women arrived in Miami nearly two weeks ago ahead of the main event, in which Miss Universe, Gabriela Isler of Ven ezuela, will pass on her crown. â€œToday Showâ€ personality Nata lie Morales will host the show, at 7 p.m. CST on CBS. Will another Latina take the crown? Beauty pageants are big business in Latin American countries, where girls are groomed from an early age. â€œThereâ€™s a lot of pride,â€ Miss Colom bia Paulina Vega said. â€œLatin women, Latin people, are very emphatic. They have it in their blood, right? So, it could be true that maybe between the Latin women there may be more competition,â€ Miss Bolivia Claudia Tavel said. â€œAnd we hope that this year, like brothers, weâ€™ll support (each other) and that Miss Universe will be a good-hearted woman, and be a Latina.â€ At 19, Miss Venezuela Migbelis Lynette Castellanos is one of the youngest contestants in the pageant. She especially is feeling the heat â€” three of the last six titles have gone to Venezuelans. â€œI have the pressure and the sup port from all the Venezuelans,â€ she said. Roommates and besties Roommates Miss USA Nia San chez and Miss Australia Tegan Mar tin quickly hit it off. They even started a web series: #watchNiaandTegan. â€œOur video for today is her trying to teach me how to talk in an Aussie accent. ... Weâ€™ll do some self-defense moves, weâ€™ll do some hair advice. Weâ€™ve got a lot of stuff going on,â€ San chez, 24, said. â€œWeâ€™ve been doing everything together,â€ Martin, 22, said. â€œ...

She did have a mes sage for her people: â€œThey donâ€™t have to be afraid. They have to hope and think about good things.â€ Middle East conflict Miss Israel Doron Matalon took an Instagram selfie with Miss Japan, Miss Slovenia and Miss Lebanon â€” and started a Middle East spat. Lebanon and Israel are longtime foes, and Lebanon doesnâ€™t have rela tions with its neighbor. Lebanese Tourism Minister Michel Pharon said that â€œif there was bad intentionsâ€ from Miss Lebanon Saly Greige, mea sures could be taken against her. Griege said Matalon took the photo without her permission. Matalon said it was a joint photo and was saddened that Griege was being criticized at home. â€œWe need to remember that we represent the country and the people, not the government and not the politi cal issues,â€ she said. â€œX-Menâ€ gown Miss Indonesia Elvira Devin amira, 21, nicknamed a gown after an â€œX-Menâ€ character because of the scalelike sequins that change color from silver to pink when she moves her hand up or down the dress. â€œI call it â€˜Mystique.â€™ Itâ€™s fun,â€ said Devinamira, who worked with the designer on the gown. In the comics, Mystiqueâ€™s superpower is mimick ing the voice and appearance of any person. Dessert? Yes, please Miss USA Nia Sanchez says she is counting down the minutes until she finishes the swimsuit competi tion and she can finally indulge in her favorite treat. â€œI have a jar of Nutella Iâ€™m going to have backstage,â€ she said. Maybe she got the idea from fellow chocaholic Miss Norway Elise Dalby, who says she believes one piece of chocolate a day makes all her trou bles go away. Homecourt advantage Miss Venezuela Migbelis Lynette Castellanos might not be competing in her home country, but itâ€™s the next best thing. The host city of Doral is often referred to as â€œDoralzuelaâ€ for its many Venezuelan residents. â€œIâ€™m feeling at home,â€ she said. Meanwhile, Miss Great Britain Grace Levy is still trying to gin up support from her native land. â€œBrits are quite fickle. Theyâ€™re not very supportive of beauty pag eants, and I think it will take a Great Britain win for them to be a lot more supportive.â€ And the one truly at home, Miss USA Nia Sanchez says she feels less pressure competing in the U.S. More than 30 friends and family members, including her 8-year-old brother and grandparents, are part of her cheer ing squad. â€œI feel like I can just go in there and have fun and really enjoy myself because Iâ€™m in a comfortable zone,â€ said Sanchez, who is from Nevada.

The Associated Press MIAMI â€˜Butt doctorsâ€™ plead to illegal practice A South Florida couple who ran a â€œbutt doctorâ€ practice out of their home has pleaded guilty to practicing health care without a license. The pleas came Thursday in MiamiDade Circuit Court from 55-year-old Samela Hernandez and 59-year-old Pedro Hernandez. The Hialeah couple will serve two years of house arrest, with permission to leave for work, plus payment of restitution. Authorities said they mainly provided so-called â€œtouch-upâ€ injections to their mostly female customers who had gotten more extensive posterior enhancement work done overseas. They were arrested after an exotic dancer suffered permanent disfigurement. Investigators also said Samela Hernandez used a silicon-based solution that is legal in her home country of Colombia but banned in the U.S. South Florida is a hub for illegal butt enhancements. AVENTURA â€˜Je Suis Charlieâ€™ trademark sought A Miami-area man is seeking to profit from the phrase â€œJe Suis Charlie,â€ which became a rallying cry after a terrorist attack in Paris that killed 12 people at the Charlie Hebdo newspaper. According to a Jan. 16 filing at the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office, the Latin Ameri can Trading Group Inc. applied for a trademark on the words, which translate to â€œI Am Charlie.â€ The application says the phrase would be used on a range of products. The companyâ€™s listed director, Joe Marc Ger shon, does not have a listed phone number and could not be reached for comment Friday. Coral Gables trade mark attorney David Friedland predicted the application will not be approved because trade mark holders must be the phraseâ€™s source. SUNRISE Car found in canal tied to cold case Officials said they recovered from a South Florida canal a car that a young couple was in when they disappeared more than 30 years ago. The 1969 Dodge Cornet car was spotted Wednesday by a South Florida Water Management District employee who was doing routine maintenance work in Sunrise. Authorities ran the vehicle identification number and confirmed it was connected to the missing-persons case of Dana Null, 15, and Harry Wade Atchison III, 19. They were last seen leaving Atchisonâ€™s house in October 1978. Detectives said the pair had been arguing after attending a Foreigner concert in Hollywood earlier that evening. Atchison got into his car and started to leave when Null flagged him down and got into the car. MELBOURNE Landscaper hit in face by tire Authorities said a landscaper suffered a fractured skull and smashed nose when he was struck by an airborne tire as he worked along a central Florida road. The accident happened Wednesday in Melbourne. The landscaper was stacking wood and branches into his work trailer and had apparently placed a tire in the road in place of a traditional orange traffic cone to warn drivers to slow down. Police said a vehicle traveling north on the darkened street hit the tire, sending it flying. A woman who was with the landscaper wasnâ€™t hurt. Authorities are ask ing for witnesses or any one who was in the area to come forward. The landscaper was taken to a hospital and was in stable condition on Wednesday night. JACKSONVILLE â€˜Craiglist Killerâ€™ has sentence upheld The Florida Supreme Court upheld a death sentence in the so-called â€œCraigslist Killerâ€ case. David Kelsey Sparre of Waynesville, Ga., was convicted in the July 2010 slaying of Tiara Pool, whom heâ€™d met after responding to her Craigslist post seeking a male companion. Sparre said he killed Pool, whose husband at the time was deployed at sea, just for the â€œrush.â€ At trial, Sparre refused attempts to submit evidence of his mental illness and drug abuse issues in his defense. The high court agreed that guidelines are needed for cases where defendants refuse a defense but disagreed that Sparre should be resentenced given his admission. State BRIEFS

Hoyt and Jeff Knurek Today is Saturday, Jan. 24, the 24th day of 2015. There are 341 days left in the year. Highlight in history On Jan. 24, 1965, British statesman Winston Churchill died in London at age 90. On this date 1742: Charles VII was elected Holy Roman Emperor during the War of the Austrian Succession. 1848: James W. Marshall discovered a gold nugget at Sutterâ€™s Mill in northern California, a discovery that led to the gold rush of â€˜49. 1908: The Boy Scouts movement began in England under the aegis of Robert Baden-Powell. 1935: Beer was first sold in cans in Richmond, Virginia, by the Gottfried Krueger Brewing Co. 1961: A U.S. Air Force B-52 crashed near Goldsboro, North Carolina, dropping its payload of two nuclear bombs, neither of which went off. In 1963, a U.S. Air Force B-52 on a training mission crashed into Elephant Mountain in Maine after encountering turbulence and losing its vertical stabilizer. 1975: Comedian Larry Fine, of â€œThree Stoogesâ€ fame, died in Los Angeles at age 72. 1989: Confessed serial killer Theodore Bundy was executed in Floridaâ€™s electric chair. Thought for today â€œTo improve is to change, so to be perfect is to have changed often.â€ â€” Winston Churchill (1874-1965). ARIES (March 21-April 19): The person you love has opinions you donâ€™t necessarily agree with. That is fine with everyone; the tension makes for interesting conversation, and you are quick on the respond. TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Here is the bubble of happiness that surrounds you today; itâ€™s as if you are traveling the world with your heart completely open yet no one can hurt you. GEMINI (May 21-June 21): Wherever you are, youâ€™re there for a reason. Thereâ€™s something to learn, something to gain. CANCER (June 22-July 22): When you set an example, you do so by words and deed. You do so by your very essence. Be peace. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): You will handle your responsibility with confidence. Youâ€™ve had plenty of practice, after all. Youâ€™ll be well-rewarded for this, as long as you stop the bad habit of worrying over things that are not in your control. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): You canâ€™t help the feeling that you deserve more â€” love, respect, tenderness and attention. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23): Activities in several different areas of life will make you well-rounded and, actually, happy. Stray from that to-do list and youâ€™ll have something impressive to add to your â€œta-da!â€ list. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21): Avoid talks. Avoid meetings. Most of what happens will happen because of someoneâ€™s sense of purpose. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Find the strength in tenderness and the tenderness in strength. Seek resolution to a problem you are having with a female in your life. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Pay attention to the tone of voice you are using when you speak to yourself. In the afternoon, you will spend money to make money, and then youâ€™ll spend it again tonight on fun and entertainment â€” a worthy cost. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Life comes to you with new vividness. You will remember the details that escaped you. Bonus: Optimism might not come easily, but your willingness to practice positive thinking will pay off. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Halfcompleted or unclear commitments should be cleared up now. This is probably a â€œdoingâ€ matter, as opposed to a â€œtalkingâ€ matter. Crowdfunding requests create conflicts for readers DEAR AMY: Today I received an email from my 28-year-old nephew, a young man I like very much. â€œThomasâ€ recently married his longtime boyfriend. I attended the wedding, gave a generous gift and received a lovely thank-you note. The email outlined Tomâ€™s participation in an excursion to two gay-unfriendly countries. Tom explained why he felt this was important and said that more funding is needed so that the entire delegation can attend. He included a link to his individual fundraising site for anyone who wished to contribute. Although I support gay rights, this trip seems like a bit of a junket. Even if it is not, I am surprised that he is making plans to take a trip that he canâ€™t afford on his own. He is a married man and I think he and his husband should be self-supporting. I have similar feelings about a friend who asked me to fund a weekend trip so she could participate in a charity walk-a-thon. Do I have any responsibility (or right) to tell these people why I donâ€™t want to contribute? How would â€œI wish you the best of luck with your plansâ€ seem â€” without contributing? SUPPORTIVE DEAR SUPPORTIVE: Crowdfunding has become very popular, as people turn to the accumulated bounty and generosity of the crowd to pay for everything from surgery to band instruments. Your nephew has likely sent this request to his entire circle of family and friends. There is no crime in asking for something. Being asked does not create a contract between you; it doesnâ€™t require an affirmative response or an explanation about why you wonâ€™t fund the request You certainly have the â€œrightâ€ to react negatively, but this is one of those times when if you donâ€™t have anything positive to say, you should stay silent. DEAR AMY: Please update us on current customs, etiquette and hospitality. My husband and I have a younger friend, â€œLaura.â€ She is a psychologist in private practice and a yoga instructor on the weekends. When she had her 35th birthday at a local bar/party room she told everyone to â€œorder lots of food and drink.â€ We had a can of Sprite and a small bag of potato chips and left early. The next day Laura asked why we left without paying for our refreshments and share of the room rent. For her 37th birthday, she solicited donations to pay off her student loan. At her 39th birthday party, she had a â€œsmile tableâ€ for guests to pay for her dental work (I skipped parties on other years). Now we are invited to her â€œwedding.â€ She was married last year. They are having a reception with â€œlight snacksâ€ on their first anniversary. On the invitation they requested contributions for fertility testing and an IVF procedure. My husband and I like to help others. We have willingly given Laura thousands of dollars over the years. Should we start saving for their eventual down payment on a house? BEWILDERED IN SEATTLE DEAR BEWILDERED: Laura wants others to finance her life. If you choose to celebrate this marriage, you could give a gift to the homeless charity of your choice in her name and call it a day. DEAR AMY: My advice to â€œCuriousâ€ is to leave her poor birth mother in peace. After 40 years, for her to contact half-siblings against everyoneâ€™s wishes will do nothing but expose her motherâ€™s secret. What will be the effect on her life if this happens? When does desire for truth become malicious stalking? UPSET DEAR UPSET : Exactly. I hope â€œCuriousâ€ carefully considers the possible negative impact of her choice on others.

In his annual message for the churchâ€™s World Day of Communi cations, released Friday, Francis said media can both help or hinder family communication â€” helping far-flung members stay in touch but also enabling others to avoid one another. â€œThe great challenge facing us today is to learn once again how to talk to one another, not simply how to generate and consume information,â€ Francis said. The theme of this yearâ€™s mes sage coincides with Francisâ€™ twoyear focus on families, which will culminate in October with a big meeting of bishops to hash out better ways to minister to fami lies living with divorce, de-facto unions, gay children and other issues. Francis said children first learn to communicate in the fam ily, figuring out how to get along with people of different ages and experience. As a result, he said, families are the model for all com munications since it is in the fam ily where children first learn to forgive. â€œA perfect family does not exist,â€ he said. â€œWe should not be fearful of imperfections, weak nesses or even conflict, but rather learn how to deal with them constructively.â€ Francis referred to families Friday in a separate speech to the Roman Rota, the Vatican tribunal which handles annulment cases. He called for church tribunals around the globe to offer annul ment services for free, saying all Catholics have the right to justice from the church. â€œSacraments are free,â€ he said. Francis also said tribunal judges should take into account that ignorance of the faith can be a reason to declare a marriage invalid. Francis has previously quoted his predecessor as Buenos Aires archbishop as saying half of the marriages that are celebrated are essentially invalid because people enter into them not real izing that matrimony is a life-long commitment. Pope Francis praises big families after â€˜like rabbitsâ€™ remark VATICAN CITY â€” Pope Francis praised big families on Wednesday as a gift from God, after his com ments that Catholics donâ€™t have to breed â€œlike rabbitsâ€ made head lines this week. Francis said numerous chil dren donâ€™t cause poverty in the developing world, as some have suggested, and that the real cause of poverty is an unjust economic system that idolizes money over people. Francis reviewed his recent trip to Sri Lanka and the Philip pines during his weekly general audience. During the trip, Francis strongly defended the Vatican ban on artificial contraception. But he also restated the churchâ€™s posi tion that Catholics neednâ€™t breed â€œlike rabbitsâ€ and should practice â€œresponsible parenthoodâ€ through church-approved birth control methods. On Wednesday, he gave a nod to big families, who may have felt somewhat insulted by his com ments aboard the plane return ing to Rome. Just weeks ago, Francis met with an association of large Catholic families to show his support. He said that while in the Philip pines, it gave him great â€œconsola tion and hope to see so many large families who welcome children as a true gift of God. They know that every child is a blessing.â€ To list a church in the Church Directory, call the News Herald Advertising Department at 747-5030.

Tens of thousands of people across the landlocked country Monday attended river and lakeside religious ceremonies, where swimmers raced to retrieve crosses thrown into the water. Women were banned from taking part in the eastern Bregalnica area, where clergy said the cross should be retrieved by a man because of his role as traditional head of the family. Police intervened in the area last year, when a female swimmer reached the cross first but had it forcibly taken from her by a man. F aithful honor Orthodox saint SOUROTI, Greece â€” Thousands of faithful have made the pilgrimage to the monastery of St. John the Evangelist in a small town in northern Greece to visit the grave of the Orthodox Churchâ€™s latest saint, Saint Paisios. Paisios, a monk who spent most of his life in the nearby Mount Athos monastic community, was essentially made a saint by popular acclamation. Revered among the faithful as a wise man and a prophet, he was canonized last Tuesday by the Synod of the Ecumenical Patriarchate bishops in Istanbul, Turkey, just over 20 years after his death, on July 12, 1994, at the age of 70. In the Orthodox Church, specific miracles arenâ€™t required to become a saint â€” instead the reputation of the faithful plays a major role. But Paisiosâ€™ sainthood happened quickly according to church standards, and was the secondfastest sainthood in recent church history. Church electrician: Canâ€™t remember stealing confession MADRID â€” The former electrician for Spainâ€™s famed cathedral in Santiago de Compostela has denied having ever seen the priceless 12th-century Codex Calixtinus that authorities found in his garage and has insisted he doesnâ€™t remember confessing that he stole it. The richly-decorated Codex, which went missing in 2011, is considered the first guide for Christians making the pilgrimage to venerate St. James. Pope F rancis confirms plans to visit New Y ork City NEW YORK â€” New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio says heâ€™s â€œexcited and delightedâ€ to host Pope Francis during his visit to the United States later this year. The pope said Monday he plans to speak at the United Nations during his three-city trip to the U.S. in September.

Sports PANAMA CITY NEWS HERALD SATURDAY January 24, 2015 Section C Facebook: tinyurl.com/NHSports Twitter: @NH_Sports www.newsherald.com/sports MELBOURNE, Australia (AP) â€” Roger Federer will look back on it and wonder, just as he did on court, why he just watched as Andreas Seppi went down the line and ended his streak of reaching the Austra lian Open semifinals for 11 consecutive years. The 17-time Grand Slam champion was facing match point against Seppi for the first time in their 11 head-to-head meetings, and had control of the rally when he hit a deep forehand into the corner and followed it to the net. The No. 46-ranked Seppi lunged to his right and stuck out his racket, more hopeful than confident, and guided the ball down the line. Federer let it go past, and glanced back to see it land inside the baseline, giving Seppi a 6-4, 7-6 (5), 4-6, 7-6 (5) win and a spot in the fourth round. â€œThe way he hits it you think, â€˜This canâ€™t possibly land in.â€™ You kind of go and youâ€™re there and youâ€™re like, â€˜No, Iâ€™m going to let it go,â€™â€ the second-seeded Federer said. â€œAs youâ€™re telling yourself that, you look behind you and you already know itâ€™s done.â€ Federer had reached the semifinals or better at Melbourne Park ever since winning the first of his four Australian titles in 2004. He hadnâ€™t been ousted before the fourth round here since 2001. That changed in an instant. The News Herald PANAMA CITY â€” The Gulf Coast menâ€™s and wom enâ€™s basketball teams will each play perhaps their biggest game of the season tonight when they travel to Marianna to face Chipola. The No. 20 Lady Com modores (14-5 overall, 1-3 in the Panhandle Confer ence) need a win to try to keep pace in the race for one of the top three spots in the league stand ings necessary to get a berth in the state tournament. Gulf Coast trails Talla hassee (18-5, 3-2) for third place, but with the Lady Eagles facing 0-5 Pensac ola tonight at home, a loss to Chipola could leave the Lady Commodores two games back in the loss col umn for third with seven to play. Getting a win will be no easy task against the No. 3 Lady Indians (20-1, 4-1), who lost their first game of the season 67-54 at Northwest Florida State on Jan. 17. Chipola beat Gulf Coast 75-67 in the first meeting in Panama City on Jan. 7, a game in which the Lady Commodores trailed 45-19 at halftime before making a huge second half run that fell short. For the Gulf Coast men (14-7, 1-3), a loss would mean sole possession of last place in the conference and would give Chipola (8-14, 1-4) the sea son series. The Indians won the first matchup 56-53 in Panama City, but they have since lost three in a row, falling to TCC 6158, Northwest Florida State 88-66 and Pensacola 50-42. The Commodores bounced back from the loss with a big road victory over Tallahassee 67-61, but back to back losses to NWF State 87-83 and Pensacola 69-61 have made tonightâ€™s game a virtual must-win in order to stay in the hunt for the postseason.

The win, which improved the Rams to 10-0 in league play and 19-3 overall, was their 29th in a row against district opponents, although it appeared early on as if the home team would be in for a dogfight. Rutherford needed a late 12-0 run to hold off Bay in their last meeting Jan. 9 and the Tornadoes were feisty during the first half Fri day. They jumped to a 19-11 lead thanks to 12 combined points from Rayshawn Patterson and Robert Monroe. A Josh Wade putback of a missed 3-pointer by Steele closed the first quarter and the Rams closed the second quarter even stronger with a 10-0 spurt that pro duced the lead. Destin Dunton drove to the hoop for a three-point play to start the run, with Steele hitting a pullup jumper and a 3-pointer before Dunton finished it off with another driving bucket with 3 seconds on the clock. Rutherford led 27-24 at the break.

ANDREW WARDLOW | The News Herald MARLINSâ€™ MOMENT By PAT McCANN 747-5068 | Twitter: @patmccann firstname.lastname@example.org PANAMA CITY BEACH â€” On a night when artistry mostly yielded to expedience, the gamewinner was more than worthy of deciding a district championship. Arnold freshman Marco Tomicâ€™s brilliant individual effort resulted in a goal in the 68th minute and elevated the Marlins to a 2-1 win and the 2-3A boys soccer title Friday night at Mike Gavlak Sports Complex. The outcome, Arnoldâ€™s first district title in at least seven years, even Marlins coach Aaron Murphy couldnâ€™t be certain, earned homefield against Gulf Breeze in the region quarterfinals on Thursday. Mosley must travel to Class 3A power, undefeated Choctawhatchee, in Fort Walton Beach. The first two goals were scored off set pieces, and with conditions more conducive to survival than excellence it seemed likely that the deciding goal would come off another, or possibly a critical turnover. Instead it was Tomic, a native of the Czech Republic who said he wasnâ€™t even enrolled at BOYS SOCCER DISTRICT 2-3A CHAMPIONSHIP: ARNOLD 2, MOSLEY 1 Arnold defeats county rival Mosley to claim 2-3A crownSEE SOCCER | C2Perfect ending for R utherfordSEE PREP | C2 Rams down Tornadoes to cap undefeated district schedule

Bay scratched its way back into it with an 8-0 run punctuated by a short banker and a jumper by Patterson, but a layup by Steele and a floater by Dunton pushed the margin back to 11 at 46-35. A basket inside by Cody John son got Bay within 52-44 early in the fourth quarter, but Steele hit two free throws, Dunton scored on a drive and Steele scored off a backdoor cut to give the Rams a 58-46 edge with 3:31 to go. Baskets by Curtis Turner and Wade extended the lead to 15 with 2:17 remaining and Rams coach Rhondie Ross started taking out his starters with just over 2 minutes left. â€œI thought (Bay) smacked us in the mouth early on, so we had to kind of weather the storm,â€ Ross said. â€œI thought the kids responded well after that and played well in the second half.â€ Patterson led the Tornadoes with 20 points, with Monroe and Johnson adding eight each. Dunton had 16 points and Wade had nine, with Steeleâ€™s 28 giving the senior trio 53 of Rutherfordâ€™s 65 points on Senior Night. Ross said he was happy to see the seniors play so well in their last regular-season home game. â€œIt was great. Iâ€™ve been knowing those core kids of ours since they were 8 years old,â€ Ross said. â€œThey were coming out watching my games 10 years ago, so itâ€™s been great to get to coach them.â€ The trio will have an opportunity in the upcoming district tournament in Gulf Breeze to finish their careers with three league titles. The Rams once again will go in as the top seed. â€œOur goal is always to be the No. 1 seed and going 10-0 is great,â€ Ross said. â€œNow we can go into the tournament with some momentum.â€ BAY (49) Lucas 2 1-2 6, Monroe 3 1-1 8, Murphy 1 0-0 2, Everett 0 0-1 0, Patterson 8 4-5 20, Taylor 2 0-0 5, Johnson 3 2-5 8.

Florida High scored in the final minute of regulation, however, and the teams remained deadlocked through two overtimes. Florida High eventually prevailed in the second round of penalty kicks. Ashley Posey had eight saves for the Buccaneers, including two penalty kicks. Boys basketball Blountstown 82, Franklin County 67 BLOUNTSTOWN â€” Blountstown outscored Franklin County 21-7 in the fourth quarter to pull away after trailing by eight points at halftime. Leading Franklin County, 11-9, was Tyler Farmer with 20 points. Kaolin Wilson had 13 points and nine rebounds, Kelsey Jones 10 points and 11 rebounds and Tyler Howard 10 points and seven rebounds. The News Herald Rutherford is headed into a new district in a new class next football season, while Mosley gets to stay put after all, the Florida High School Athletics Association announced Friday. Revised football-only classifications were released Dec. 15, but Mondayâ€™s statement incorporated the appeals by various schools to the initial changes. Rutherford origi nally was slotted to remain in District 15A along with Arnold, Bay, West Florida and new addition Pensacola, which moved down from 6A. Instead, the Rams will enter four-team District 1-4A where they will compete with Marianna, East Gads den, and Walton. The Rams played Marianna and East Gadsden during the 2014 season, beating the Bulldogs 33-14 and the Jaguars 21-12. Those were Rutherfordâ€™s only victories in 2014, the Rams finishing 2-8. Mosley was slotted to move into 6A and compete in District 2 with Choctawhatchee, Fort Wal ton Beach, and Crestview, but the Dolphins now will stay in District 1-5A, which will be reduced from seven teams to five with Pensac ola Catholic also moving down in class, in the Crusadersâ€™ case two classifications from 5A to 3A. In 1A, District 2 increases from five teams to six with the addition of Holmes County, while Freeport moves from District 1 to District 3. Chipley moves from District 3 to District 4. Bozeman remains in District 3, and North Bay Haven will continue as an independent in football. The News Herald EBRO â€” Bluegrass Singer is expected to make his next start in todayâ€™s $400,000 Holy Bull Stakes at Gulfstream Park, simul cast at Ebro Greyhound Park. The three-year-old gelding is cross-entered in the 1-1/16-mile Holy Bull as well as the $150,000 Hutcheson Stakes at seven furlongs, two of the five stakes on an 11-race card. Bluegrass Singer drew far outside post 8 in the Hutcheson and post 4 of 10 in the Holy Bull, where he will have the services of Javier Castellano. Frosted and Upstart are expected to be among pre-race favorites, with Bluegrass Singer another popular choice. Castellano rode Bluegrass Singer to a 1-length victory in the Mucho Macho Man Stakes, formerly the Gulfstream Park Derby, three weeks ago. The Holy Bull will be Bluegrass Singerâ€™s first try beyond a mile. Over all he has three wins and a third in four tries over Gulfstreamâ€™s main track. Bluegrass Singer had a three-furlong bullet work in 36 seconds on Sunday at Gulfstream Park West, and was the fastest of eight horses. Included on the Gulf stream card are the Grade II Forward Gal, the Kittenâ€™s Joy, the Sweetest Chant as well as the Hutcheson. Santa Anita stages California Cup Derby Day with unbeaten Accep tance among the nomina tions. The undercard also includes the California Cup Oaks, California Cup Turf Classic, Sunshine Millions Turf Sprint for fillies and mares and California Cup Sprint where Big Macher is nominated. Aqueduct showcases the Rego Park and Tampa Bay has three feature races including the Grade III Tampa Bay Stakes, the Pelican Stakes and the Lightning City Stakes over five furlongs. Greyhound : JBâ€™s Luc kyone comes off three straight wins and four in five in todayâ€™s matinee seventh race at Sarasota. JBâ€™s Luckyone is moving up from sprint distance to 5-16, however, and should face a stiff challenge from Clayton Delaney, among others. Clayton Delaney has won seven of 15 and starts in the 8 hole com ing off five consecutive quinielas. The 14th has Ebro campaigner Bocâ€™s Salsa debuting in Grade A. The De-N-De dog has plenty of early speed, but may need to fend off BS Rebel, with 13 trifectas in 18 starts and Barbara Rubin, the latter 3-to-1 on the morning line. In the evening 12th at Sarasota, Flying Dicaprio has won three of four with a second to barge into Grade A. Martin Garcia, who won 12 times at Ebro, has won seven of 14 since relocat ing and Bocâ€™s Sportspice, another Ebro standout, is 11 of 18 in the trifecta and coming off a victory over Barbara Rubin. Rutherford moving to Class 4A in football Ebro: Holy Bull Stakes takes spotlight from Gulfstream â€œI donâ€™t know. Ask him how he felt hitting it,â€ Federer said. â€œItâ€™s clearly a big blow because I actu ally hit my forehand pretty good.â€ Seppi was euphoric, but acknowledged that the defin ing shot of the match was not a calculated winner. â€œYeah, was for sure a strange shot,â€ the 30-yearold Italian said. â€œAt the begin ning I thought I couldnâ€™t even reach the ball. Then, when I hit it, I didnâ€™t see it going there. I just saw when it bounced in. â€œWas for sure one of the important shots of my life.â€ Seppi had only advanced beyond the second round once at his nine previous trips to the Australian Open. He held his nerve despite some withering winners from Federer, who registered his 1,000th career match win earlier this month in Bris bane. Federer, uncharac teristically, let mini-breaks slip in both tiebreakers, had nine double-faults in the match and was unusually inconsistent. â€œIt just broke me to lose that second set. And actu ally the fourth, I should win it, too,â€ Federer said. â€œJust a brutal couple of sets to lose there. The end wasnâ€™t pretty.â€ Seppi will get another appearance on Rod Laver Arena for his fourth-round match against Australian teenager Nick Kyrgios, who shrugged off concern over a nosebleed to beat Malek Jaziri of Tunisia 6-3, 7-6 (6), 6-1. Kyrgios beat then No. 1-ranked Rafael Nadal in the fourth round at Wimbledon last year. Nadal is still a contender in Australia after rebound ing from his five-set, sec ond-round win to beat No. 106-ranked Dudi Sella 6-1, 6-0, 7-5. The 14-time major win ner is coming off a lengthy stint on the sidelines, and has been playing down his chances of going all the way again in Melbourne, where he won in 2009. Andy Murray hasnâ€™t had a match on the center court at Melbourne yet this year, but it hasnâ€™t bothered the three-time finalist. He won in straights sets again, beat ing Joao Sousa 6-1, 6-1, 7-5 to set up a clash with No. 10 Grigor Dimitrov, who labored through a five-set win over 2006 Australian Open finalist Marcos Baghdatis. Seventh-seeded Tomas Berdych needed eight match points before beating Viktor Troicki 6-4, 6-3, 6-4 and will next play Bernard Tomic, who beat fellow Australian Sam Groth 6-4, 7-6 (8), 6-3. After having to fend off match points in her previ ous match, Maria Sharapova made sure it wasnâ€™t even close in the third round by beating No. 31 Zarina Diyas 6-1, 6-1 in 61 minutes. She next plays Peng Shuai and has a potential quarterfi nal against No. 7 Eugenie Bouchard. The 20-year-old Canadian struggled through a scrappy opening set before record ing a 7-5, 6-0 third-round win over Caroline Garcia that featured 10 breaks of serve. â€œI donâ€™t think it was the prettiest tennis out there,â€ said Bouchard, who reached the semifinals in her first trip to Melbourne Park last year and went on to make the semifinals or better at two of the other three majors in a break through season. SPORT S Page C2 | The News Herald | Saturday, January 24, 2015 Arnold when the school year began, who decided the outcome. He collected the ball near midfield, beat two Mosley defenders off the dribble, and with teammates urging him to send the ball in their direction pushed forward and angled into the box from the right side. His shot never left the ground and rolled into the far left corner of the net. â€œTo be honest, I thought I messed up,â€ Tomic said. â€œThen I went 1-on-1 with the keeper.â€ The field was heavy from intermittent rain showers throughout the day and slippery in spots. Conditions were compounded by a persistent crosswind that blew throughout. That made navigating the offensive zone difficult both in the air and on the ground. â€œIt was very tough, very muddy,â€ Tomic said. â€œWe were slipping, but we did it.â€ Defending district champion Mosley, 9-8-1, did not go quietly. First it was Hunter Ginn arching a shot over Arnold keeper Trevor Jaquay that clanged off the crossbar in the 77th minute. The Dolphins then had two corner kicks in extra time, and the second produced a harrowing opportunity for the equalizer. But Kyle Hudson couldnâ€™t quite make solid contact with a ball tantalizingly fluttering 5 yards in front of Arnoldâ€™s net, and the last shot floated into Jaquayâ€™s hands seconds before the final whistle. Arnold, 14-1-2, led 1-0 at halftime. Senior McKenzie Thomasâ€™ header off a corner kick by Austin Peffers was the lone goal in opening half and came in the 21st minute. Mosley tied it in early the second half. This time it was Devin Bragg converting on a corner by Judah Tuvyana in the 44th minute. There were other opportunities for both teams. Tomicâ€™s shot in the 47th minute from 30 yards was deflected to the left of Mosley keeper Ben Pehr. Arnoldâ€™s Chase Cantrell wasnâ€™t able to get a strong header from close range, but it was enough to direct the ball into the net. A Mosley defender on the back line was able to deflect it away, however, and the Dolphins cleared. Pehr made an outstanding save in the 9th minute when Cantrell labeled a shot just inside the far left post. Pehr dived to spike the ball away, and Mosley survived the resulting corner. About 10 minutes later Ginn had a similar opportunity for Mosley, but Jaquay collared his shot from 15 yards.Mosley 0 1 â€” 1 Arnold 1 1 â€” 2 Scoring: 1. Arnold, Thomas (Peffers) 21st minute. 2.

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) â€” The NFL says it is still investigat ing how the New England Patriots used underinflated balls in their last game but has no conclusions yet and no timetable for resolving the cheating accusations with the Super Bowl nine days away. The league said Friday that evidence shows the Patriots used underinflated footballs during the first half of the AFC championship game Sunday night against the Indianapolis Colts. It issued a statement that the Patriots have pledged full coop eration and have given the league information it requested and made personnel available upon request. Quarterback Tom Brady said Thursday afternoon he had not been contacted at that point. The NFL said it began its inves tigation Sunday night and expects cooperation from other clubs. It hired an investigatory company to help review electronic and video information. Patriots owner Robert Kraft said investigators were in Fox borough for three days this week after he received a letter from the league Monday informing him of the probe. â€œWe provided access to every fulland part-time employee the leagueâ€™s representatives requested to speak with and produced every communication device that they requested to search,â€ he said. â€œI very much support the leagueâ€™s desire to conduct a complete investigation.â€ The Patriots are preparing to meet the defending champion Seattle Seahawks in the Super Bowl on Feb. 1 in Glendale, Ariz. The league said its conclu sions will be quickly shared when reached. â€œOver the past several days, nearly 40 interviews have been conducted, including of Patriots personnel, game officials and third parties with relevant information and expertise,â€ the statement said. NFL Executive Vice President Jeff Pash and Ted Wells of the law firm of Paul Weiss are leading the probe. Wells was the investigator in the Miami Dolphins bullying scandal. His report last February detailed widespread harassment in the teamâ€™s locker room that extended beyond the two players at the cen ter of the probe. It said guard John Jerry and center Mike Pouncey followed Richie Incognitoâ€™s lead in harassing offensive lineman Jona than Martin. The NFL requires game balls to be inflated to between 12 1/2 and 13 1/2 pounds per square inch. It wants to find out why foot balls were underinflated during the first half and whether â€œdeliber ate actionâ€ caused it. â€œWe have not made any judg ments on these points and will not do so until we have concluded our investigation and considered all of the relevant evidence,â€ the league said. CLEVELAND (AP) â€” Browns owner Jimmy Haslam has one goal this offseason. Itâ€™s the same one as last year. â€œWeâ€™ve got to get a quar terback and got to get it fixed,â€ he said. Speaking at the Greater Cleveland Sports Awards where he appeared on stage with Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert and Indians owner Paul Dolan, Haslam said the Browns remain com mitted to finding a fran chise quarter back. He said all options are open to find a starter for next season and Haslam has no idea if Johnny Manziel is the long-term answer. The Browns have had no luck at quarterback since returning as an expansion franchise in 1999. Cleveland has gone through 22 different starters in the past 16 sea sons, and the teamâ€™s inabil ity to land a franchise QB in the draft or free agency may best underscore years of losing. Haslam wonâ€™t stop until the Browns find their answer at the gameâ€™s most impor tant position. â€œYou can look at the teams whether theyâ€™re in the final eight, the final four or the final two, youâ€™ve got to have a really good quarter back,â€ Haslam said, â€œand our situation as Coach Pettine says is still muddy and we donâ€™t know who our quarter back is going to be next year. What I would say to our fans is weâ€™re going to continue to work really hard to find that quarterback who can make us a championship team. Weâ€™re going to work hard till we get a quarterback who can help us win and win con sistently, which weâ€™ve stated since Day 1 is our goal. â€œAnd itâ€™s not easy, but we understand itâ€™s the mission and weâ€™re going to work hard at it,â€ he added. Haslam, who spent time backstage talking with Ohio Stateâ€™s national-champion ship winning quarterback Cardale Jones, echoed ear lier comments by Browns coach Mike Pettine and new offensive coordinator John DeFilippo that the Browns donâ€™t know if their quarter back is on the roster. â€œWe donâ€™t know yet,â€ said Haslam. Last season, the Browns were in the playoff race before starter Brian Hoyer struggled down the stretch and was benched in favor of Manziel. Hoyer, who started 13 games and led the Browns to 10 wins in two seasons, is eligible for free agency in March. Haslam did not rule out the possibility that Hoyer would be brought back. As for Manziel, the hyped first-round pick, he played poorly in two starts, raising questions about his future in Cleveland. Manziel was also a distraction away from the field as his weekend get aways and late-night antics became a distraction. The Associated Press Trick plays stand out in a Super Bowl a little like clown suits at a cocktail party. In this highest-of-high-stakes con test, the appetite for NFL coaches whose strategies lean more conser vative than not is typically low for gadgets and gimmicks. Surprising the other team with a safety blitz or deep pass, sure, but the risk of true trickery can be steep with a title on the line. Yes, the reward of a valuable touchdown remains. Mess up a trick play in a game of this magnitude and lose a close one in the end? Well, good luck living that decision down, coach, for the rest of your career. Perhaps another gimmick or two will emerge next week in Arizona when New England plays Seattle. The Patriots threw a touchdown pass to left tackle Nate Solder in the AFC championship game, after all, and the Seahawks scored on a fake field goal toss by punter Jon Ryan to spur their comeback victory for the NFC title. For now, hereâ€™s a list of the best trick plays in Super Bowl history: â€˜AMBUSHâ€™ IN MIAMI Onside kicks are expected at the end of the game when the trailing team is running out of time, but New Orleans stunned Indianapo lis and everyone else watching the game by recovering the kickoff to start the second half in Miami after the 2009 season. The play was called â€œambush,â€ a stutterstep tap by rookie kicker Thomas Morstead out of a standard formation that came with the Colts leading 10-6. The Saints responded with their first touchdown six plays and 58 yards later and went on to win 31-17. Payton was inspired by his mentor Bill Parcells, one of the boldest coaches in his tory. Payton drew praise from President Barack Obama at the White House cer emony for the first-time champions. â€œI make some tough decisions every day, but Iâ€™ve never decided on an onside kick in the second half of the Super Bowl. That took some guts,â€ Obama said. SECOND-HALF SPARK Twenty-three years earlier, Parcells was the coach who saw the opening for a surprise with his team trailing at the break. The New York Giants lined up for a punt on fourth-and-1 near midfield when backup quarterback Jeff Rutledge moved up behind center before the snap. He took it 2 yards on a sneak, and Phil Simms had them in the end zone five plays later for a 16-10 lead over Denver at the Rose Bowl stadium. Later in the third quarter, Parcells struck again. With the Broncos focused on stopping the run, Joe Morris took a handoff he flipped back to Simms, who found Phil McConkey wide open for a 44-yard completion on the flea flicker. With a touchdown on the next play, the Giants were up by 16 points and went on to win handily. STICK IT TO â€˜EM The Super Bowl after the 1977 season was held in New Orleans, where Dallas had a 10-point lead midway through the fourth quarter. After Denver lost a fumble on a sack at its 29-yard line, Cowboys coach Tom Landry called for the kill shot. Running back Robert Newhouse took a pitch and ran left before stopping to throw right to Golden Richards for the game-sealing touchdown. Newhouse said later he was nervous in the huddle because of an excess of Stickum, the now-banned substance once used by skill-position players to grip the ball more easily, on his hands. â€œPreston Pearson handed me this rag, and I was in there scrubbing it all,â€ Newhouse said in an interview with The Dallas Morning News. LET â€˜EM HAVE IT Trick plays arenâ€™t only for the offense. Green Bay, the champion after the 1996 season, was going for back-to-back titles the following year in San Diego. With the game tied after the two-minute warning, Pack ers coach Mike Holmgren liked his teamâ€™s chance of scoring another touchdown with the ball back better than stopping Denver on second-and-goal from the 1. So they let Terrell Davis into the end zone without trying to tackle him. The strategy almost worked. The Packers had 105 seconds left and drove to the 31, but the Broncos held on for the 31-24 victory. STEELERS SURPRISE Leading Seattle by four points early in the fourth quarter in Detroit after the 2005 season, Pittsburgh got the ball back with an interception at its 5-yard line. A return, a penalty and three plays later, coach Bill Cowher made a bold call. Running back Willie Parker handed off to wide receiver Antwaan Randle El on a firstand-10 reverse from the Seahawks 43. Then Randle El, a former college quarterback at Indiana, halted his run and heaved the ball to a wide-open Hines Ward for the 21-10 final score. Thatâ€™s the only touchdown pass by a wide receiver in Super Bowl history. â€œWhen we called it, my eyes lit up and I had to try to not give it away,â€ Randle El said. NFL says no conclusion yet on Patsâ€™ deflated footballs Browns must find answer at quarterback FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) â€” New England Patriots coach Bill Belichick has long been a fan of trick plays. Some of them are even legal. But he wonâ€™t be alone in next weekâ€™s Super Bowl: Seattle Seahawks coach Pete Carroll also went deep in his playbook to earn a chance to play for an NFL championship. Carroll used a fake field goal to help the Seahawks rally from a 16-point deficit and beat the Green Bay Pack ers in overtime in the NFC championship game. Belichick reached his sixth Super Bowl as a head coach with the help of a touchdown pass to a 320pound offensive tackle. That was one week after Belichick pulled out a doublepass and some innovative line man deployment to beat the Baltimore Ravens, a strategy that impressed his Seahawks counterpart. â€œI think itâ€™s great ball,â€ Car roll said of the man who suc ceeded him with much success as the New England coach. â€œItâ€™s within rules; itâ€™s great ball. They are figuring out a way to get an advantage. ... It makes you stay on your toes; I think itâ€™s really good coaching.â€ Belichick has long been known as a coach who will pur sue every advantage, a dog gedness that has helped him win three Super Bowls. But has also gotten him in trouble. In 2007, the Patriots were caught videotaping the other teamâ€™s signals despite a warn ing from the league to stop doing it; Belichick was fined $500,000, and the team was fined and forced to give up a first-round draft pick. Now Belichick is under sus picion again because the NFL found that the footballs used in New Englandâ€™s victory over the Colts in the AFC champion ship game were insufficiently inflated. On Thursday, Belich ick denied having anything to do with the deflated footballs. But thereâ€™s no doubt that he is intimately familiar with the rule book and willing to push its limits. For fear of giving up a com petitive advantage, he listed quarterback Tom Brady on the injury report as probable every week for three years. Brady played in every game, and the league eventually changed the reporting rules to combat the tactic. In lamenting the lineman shuffling that confused him, Baltimore coach John Har baugh acknowledged it was legal â€” though it would take a Talmudic understanding of the rule book to explain it â€” but was so frustrated that he took an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty to give his players a chance to figure out the matchups. In that same game, the Patriots also scored a touch down on a pass by receiver Julian Edelman, a college quarterback who had never thrown a pass in the NFL. Belichick has also pulled out the dropkick, the pooch punt and the intentional safety. The Seahawks have their own history of trick plays. What trick will Belichick pull from his hoodie next? AP The New Orleans Saints will have possession of the ball after an on-side kick, as Saints kicker Thomas Morstead reacts during the second half of Super Bowl XLIV against the Indianapolis Colts, in Miami. The onside kick by Morstead is one of the memorable trick plays in Super Bowl history. AP Pittsburghâ€™s Hines Ward leaps into the end zone past Seattle cornerback Marcus Trufant on a 43-yard touchdown pass from wide receiver Antwaan Randle El in the fourth quarter during Super Bowl XL.

Graham had 21 points and Briante Weber scored 15 for VCU (16-3, 6-0 Atlantic 10). Graham twice missed a pair at the line in the second half, helping the Billikens (9-10, 1-5) stay close. The Rams are 6-0 in conference play for the first time since 2006-07, when the school was in the Colonial Athletic Association. Saint Louis has lost six of seven and is 0-2 against ranked foes, but fared much better than early December when it lost by 29 at Wichita State.

Saturday, January 24, 2015 | The News Herald | Page C5 South Carolina gets latest crack at No. 1 Kentucky COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) â€” South Carolina is looking to channel its success against No. 1 Kentucky, which knows too well the dangers of entering Colonial Life Arena with a perfect record. Those 2010 Wildcats featured NBA standouts John Wall and Demarcus Cousins and seemed certain to obliterate the Game cocks. Instead, South Carolina ended Kentuckyâ€™s 19-0 start with a 68-62 victory. The Wildcats learned their lesson. Two years later, as the countryâ€™s No. 1 team and led by Anthony Davis and Terrance Jones, they ran past the Game cocks 82-56. While the cast of players is different, the situation is similar today, with No. 1 Kentucky (18-0, 5-0 Southeastern Conference) heading to South Carolina (10-7, 1-4). Kentucky coach John Calipari brings another deep and talented team into a venue where it has lost three of the past five times. The most recent came last year when the Wildcats were beaten 72-67. â€œThe thing that theyâ€™ve ben efited most of is that you donâ€™t have to play well because we have enough guys,â€ Calipari said. â€œNow you can just worry about really playing hard and doing your best. Thereâ€™s no, like, â€˜If I donâ€™t play well weâ€™re going to lose this game.â€™ â€ That hasnâ€™t always been the case in previous Kentucky visits. Former Gamecocks coach Darrin Horn won three straight series meetings â€” two at home â€” in 2009 and 2010, including the programâ€™s only win over a team ranked No. 1 in The Associated Press rankings. Kentucky had ascended to the top spot for the first time in seven years and figured to stay that way against an up-anddown South Carolina. Instead, Gamecocks star Devan Downey scored 30 points and South Caro linaâ€™s defense rattled Kentucky in the upset. Horn, an analyst on the SEC Network, recalls how a game earlier, his teamâ€™s late-game bas ket to take a lead at Florida was trumped by a Chandler Parsonsâ€™ 3-pointer to give the Gators the victory. â€œWe met Sunday and said, â€˜We canâ€™t sit around whining about what happened. We have to get readyâ€ for Kentucky. It also didnâ€™t totally sit right with his team, Horn said, that Kentucky entertained a game-day call from President Obama for their fundraising efforts to help Haiti. â€œThey were in our building and worried about talking to the presi dent,â€ Horn said with a laugh. Things were tight throughout and Horn said an official came over late in the game with South Carolina out front with a message from Calipari. The coach congrat ulated the Gamecocks since Cali pari expected bedlam at the arena and wanted to get his players off the court quickly. â€œThatâ€™s when it set in,â€ Horn said. Two years later, Kentucky made sure not repeat its mistakes as the No. 1 team pounced on the Gamecocks. Davis, this week named an NBA All-Star starter, had 23 points, eight rebounds and eight blocks. Kentucky was not on top of the rankings year ago. Still, it was team expected to easily put away Frank Martinâ€™s Gamecocks. South Carolina, though, took a double-digit lead and held on despite the Wildcatsâ€™ late rally for one of the biggest victories in Martinâ€™s three seasons. The Gamecocks had hoped to be challenging for the top of the SEC at this point â€” they entered league play off a victory over then ninth-ranked Iowa State this month â€” but have lost four of five in league play so far. Game of the weekend: No. 5 Duke at St. Johnâ€™s. History is once again on the line for Mike Krzyzewski, whose next victory will make him the first Division I menâ€™s coach with 1,000 for his career. This shapes up as his best chance to do it this month because the Blue Devilsâ€™ next two games are at No. 8 Notre Dame and No. 2 Virginia. Krzyzewski says the goals that matter most him involve the team, not merely himself. â€œItâ€™ll be a heck of a thing when and if itâ€™s done,â€ Coach K said, â€œbut itâ€™s not a championship.â€ Looking ahead: Syracuse may have fallen out of the national rankings, but the Orange (14-5, 5-1) remain very much in the ACC race. They enter the weekend tied with Notre Dame for second in the league behind Virginia and â€” after playing host to Miami today â€” can make a significant statement Monday night when they visit No. 15 North Carolina. Player to watch: Jerian Grant might be the biggest reason for Notre Dameâ€™s dramatic turnaround. The Fighting Irish didnâ€™t have him for academic reasons down the stretch last year and lost 13 of their final 20 games. With Grant leading the way, Notre Dame has soared into the top 10 and into contention in the league. Grant is the ACCâ€™s fifthleading scorer (16.7 ppg) and averages a league-best 6.4 assists â€” with at least five of them in nine straight games entering Thursday nightâ€™s game at Virginia Tech. Inside the numbers: Virginia Tech, Georgia Tech and Boston College were a combined 0-14 in ACC play after Wednesday nightâ€™s games and the leagueâ€™s bottom three teams have a few things in common. They all rank 11th or worse in scoring offense, scoring margin and assist-turnover ratio. BC has yet to score 70 points in an ACC game while the Hokies and Yellow Jackets have only done it once apiece â€” with Tech needing two overtimes to do it in a loss to Notre Dame. On the womenâ€™s side: Itâ€™s always a big deal when Duke plays North Carolina â€” even when the traditional powers are a bit down. When the 15th-ranked Blue Devils visit the 12th-ranked Tar Heels on Sunday, it will mark their first matchup since 2000 in which neither team was in the Top 10. Duke is the leagueâ€™s toughest team to both shoot and rebound against, while North Carolina has the ACCâ€™s third-best scoring offense. THIS WEEK IN THE ACC MIKE K RZYZEWSKI Game of the weekend: Texas A&M at Tennessee: After being picked by the SEC media to finish 13th in the conference, Tennessee (12-5, 4-1 SEC) instead is in sole possession of second place after winning eight of its last nine games. Texas A&M (12-5, 3-2) enters todayâ€™s game having won three straight. This new conference rivalry already has produced plenty of memorable matchups. The last three meetings between these teams includes one four-overtime game, one single-overtime contest and a matchup that was decided by one point in regulation. Looking ahead: Florida (10-8, 3-2) has long been one of the SECâ€™s most consistent and successful teams under veteran coach Billy Donovan, but the Gators are in serious danger of not making the NCAA tournament this season if things donâ€™t improve in a hurry. Florida won its first three conference games before back-to-back losses, including a 79-61 setback to LSU on Tuesday. It was the Gatorsâ€™ worst home loss since 2010. Said Florida forward Alex Murphy: â€œIf we donâ€™t come together as a team, weâ€™ll continue to get embarrassed.â€ Player to watch: LSUâ€™s Jarell Martin is piling up big numbers for the Tigers (14-4, 3-2), averaging 17.3 points over his past three games. The 6-foot-10, 235-pound sophomore forward has been particularly good on the road, with 18 points and 14 rebounds against Ole Miss and 22 points against Florida. Martin is averaging a team-high 16.9 points per game this season while shooting nearly 49 percent from the field. Key stats: Mississippi State (9-9, 2-3) ended several embarrassing SEC streaks with two victories over the past week against Vanderbilt and Auburn. Before the outburst, the Bulldogs were on a 16-game regular-season SEC losing streak and had lost 22 consecutive road games. ... Floridaâ€™s loss to Georgia on Saturday snapped the Gatorsâ€™ 24-game SEC winning streak. The Gatorsâ€™ loss to LSU on Tuesday broke a 20-game SEC winning streak at home. On the womenâ€™s side: Top-ranked South Carolina (18-0, 6-0) is entering a particularly demanding portion of its schedule. The Gamecocks put their unbeaten record on the line Monday when they host No. 10 Texas A&M.

As the Cardinals (15-3, 3-2) pre pare to visit Pittsburgh (13-6, 3-3) on Sunday, Pitino hopes they begin mak ing major progress. That process includes off-court matters such as junior forward Mon trezl Harrellâ€™s surprise announce ment that he was no longer a co-captain. The move has generated a lot of intrigue around town, but Pitino downplayed its significance on Friday. â€œIâ€™ve had that happen before,â€ Pitino said without elaborating. â€œItâ€™s really not a big deal. If it was a big deal, I would have announced it. It really wasnâ€™t a big deal; you all (the media) made it be a big deal. And, to be honest with you, he (Harrell) made it a big deal.â€ The announcement by Harrell, an Associated Press preseason first team All-American selection, leaves senior forward Wayne Blackshear as Louisvilleâ€™s sole captain. Pitino said Blackshear is capable of the respon sibility and joked about the playersâ€™ differing leadership styles as a â€œgoodcop/bad-copâ€ situation with Harrell being â€œthe hammer.â€ Right now, Pitinoâ€™s mission is get ting the Cardinals to be more aggres sive offensively after last Saturdayâ€™s 63-52 home loss to No. 5 Duke. And itâ€™s especially essential that Harrell lead that effort. Harrell enters the Pittsburgh game needing two points to become the 66th Cardinals player to reach 1,000 in his career. But since his sea son-best 25 points with 13 rebounds in the ACC opener at Wake Forest, he hasnâ€™t always been the inside pres ence that Louisville has needed. Second in scoring to sophomore guard Terry Rozier at 14.9 points and 9.2 rebounds per game, Harrell has averaged 9.0 points and 8.25 rebounds over the past four games. Pitino was pleased with Harrellâ€™s 14 rebounds against the Blue Devils but would like to see better shots than the perimeter attempts taken in Louisvilleâ€™s quest to rally from a deep early hole. â€œI think he needs to shoot more 16-footers than 22-footers,â€ Pitino said of Harrell. â€œI thought he played very well against Duke in terms of getting on the backboard. He was much more active against Duke than he was (against) North Carolina.â€ For that matter, Pitino desires wiser shot selection from all his players. The coach has often described this yearâ€™s team as more â€œoffensively chal lengedâ€ than recent squads â€” which have won 111 games, including an NCAA title, over the past four seasons. But Pitino has lamented the teamâ€™s decision-making and occasional struggles against zone defenses. To that end he has spent part of the weeklong break trying to improve areas such as getting more touches in the paint and creating more fastbreak opportunities with the press. It remains a work in progress with at least a half-dozen new faces, but Louisville still has an impressive record in spite of everything and with plenty of time to grow. â€œI bet you if you polled the fans right now, theyâ€™re probably not ecstatic that theyâ€™re 15-3,â€ Pitino said, â€œbut thatâ€™s a compliment to what has been done the last three years. I donâ€™t take that as a negative; I take that as a compliment. ... â€œLike I said, weâ€™ve got a lot of bumps that lie ahead. But this team is getting better and thatâ€™s what I look for â€” improvement. Theyâ€™re get ting better. At all phases of the game, theyâ€™re getting better. Itâ€™s just, theyâ€™re taking baby steps.â€ Sunday begins a five-game stretch with four on the road for Louisville, which is 8-5 against Pitt overall and 7-5 in the Big East Conference. The Cardinals are 3-1 in the Peterson Events Center.

(AP) â€” The injury situation at Illinois has come to this: Coach John Groce has added team manager Ryan Schmidt to the roster. After almost four full seasons of work ing with towels, water bottles and the stools players sit on during timeouts, the 6-foot senior guard will wear No. 14 today when Illinois travels to Minnesota (12-8, 1-6 Big Ten). â€œI never really expected to suit up for the orange and blue,â€ said Schmidt, who played high school ball at Bloomington (Ill.) Central Catholic and considers him self a lifelong fan. â€œMy roomâ€™s decked out in Illini gear.â€ Groce said he added Schmidt to make sure Illinois (13-7, 3-4) had enough players to practice and â€” just in case â€” enough players for game day. â€œRyanâ€™s a great kid and has been here the entire time Iâ€™ve been here,â€ the thirdyear coach said. â€œObviously played in high school, and was a really good high school player.â€ Schmidt said some Division II and III schools showed interest in him but he chose Illinois for academic reasons. He is an accounting major. In Wednesdayâ€™s win over Purdue, Illinois essentially used seven players. R Y A N SC H M IDT COLLEGE BASKETBALL
SPORT S Page C6 | The News Herald | Saturday, January 24, 2015 AP A large photo of Washington Capitals captain and All-Star Alex Ovechkin adorns the windows above the entrance to the Nationwide Arena for the NHL All-Star weekend in Columbus, Ohio. 9 Americans to play in NHL All-Star game COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) â€” Some of the best players in the world â€” Sidney Crosby, Evgeni Malkin and anybody wearing a Detroit Red Wings or Colorado Avalanche jersey â€” will be absent from the NHL All-Star game on Sunday. Yet the list of American-born talent at the game is longer than itâ€™s ever been. When the sportâ€™s best showcase their talents, there will be nine U.S. born and bred players. Itâ€™s the largest red, white and blue contingent since the NHL went to this format in 2003. â€œThat upsurge has been there,â€ said Nashville Preda tors coach Peter Laviolette, born in Norwood, Massa chusetts, who will serve as a head coach in the annual goal-fest held for the first time this year in Ohioâ€™s capital city. â€œThereâ€™s good players all over the world, there really is. But the U.S. has definitely made strides and continues to make strides.â€ The native sons include some of the biggest names in the sport: Chicago right wing Patrick Kane and Columbus left wing Nick Foligno (both from Buffalo, New York), Toronto right wing Phil Kessel and Minnesota defense man Ryan Suter (both from Madison, Wisconsin), and others such as Winnipeg defenseman Dustin Byfuglien, St. Louis blue liner Kevin Shattenkirk, Ottawa left wing Bobby Ryan, Tampa Bay center Tyler Johnson and Caro lina defenseman Justin Faulk. â€œYouâ€™re seeing a lot of great players start to come up now,â€ said Shattenkirk, one of the gameâ€™s best young defensemen. â€œItâ€™s been a great few years for U.S. hockey. Itâ€™s exciting to see that many guys here. We do take a lot of pride in, I donâ€™t want to say proving ourselves, but just making sure that American hockey is respected.â€ Consider that there were only eight American players in each of the past two All-Star games, in 2012 and 2011 (the 2013 games was canceled due to a labor dispute and there was no game last year because the Winter Olympics). Before that, there were seven U.S. players participating in 2009, three in 2008, five in both 2007 and 2004 and six in 2003. Suter said the players grow up together, play on national teams together and those bonds remain strong. â€œYouâ€™ve played with a lot of them, thatâ€™s the big thing, either in the world championships or the Olympics or growing up with the under-18s and under-17s,â€ Suter said. â€œThatâ€™s where you build those relationships. When you see them around at things like this, itâ€™s a familiarity thing.â€ NBA ROUNDUP Cavs hammer Hornets CLEVELAND (AP) â€” LeBron James scored 25 points and the Cleveland Cavaliers put on a dominant performance by routing the Charlotte Hornets 129-90 on Friday night for their fifth straight win. The Cavaliers, with an artful display of shooting and passing, had the home crowd on its feet through out the game. Clevelandâ€™s 75-40 lead at halftime was its biggest in franchise history and the margin reached 49 points in the fourth quarter. J.R. Smith scored 21 points on seven 3-point ers, and Kyrie Irving added 18 in Clevelandâ€™s biggest win of the season. Charlotte had won eight of nine, but was no match for the Cavaliers, who have again looked like title contenders since James returned from an eightgame absence with knee and back injuries. James added nine assists and six rebounds in a season-low 27 minutes. He was pulled late in the third quarter and didnâ€™t return. James is averaging 29.7 points and is shooting 51 percent in six games since his return. Al Jefferson led Char lotte with 22 points while Michael Kidd-Gilchrist added 15. Cleveland scored 14 straight points as part of a 24-4 run in the first half to put the game away early, leaving the rest of the night for open jumpers, fast breaks and dunks off alleyoop passes. Leading 14-9, the Cav aliers went on a 14-0 run keyed by 3-pointers from Irving and Smith. James was fouled shooting a 3 and made all three free throws in addition to scoring on a finger roll and hitting a jumper. James kept the Cavaliers rolling in the second quarter by hitting Timofey Mozgov with an alley-oop for a dunk, but the four-time MVP was just getting started. James stole a pass in the frontcourt and drove in for a dunk for a 55-25 lead. Less than a minute later, he took a midcourt pass from Smith and dunked, which sent the crowd into a frenzy and extended the lead to 60-27. Heat 89, Pacers 87 MIAMI â€” Luol Deng scored 23 points, Chris Bosh added 19 and the Miami Heat survived another second-half struggle at home, hanging on to top the Indi ana Pacers. Dwyane Wade scored 13 for Miami, which led by 20 late in the third quarter before Indiana ripped off an 11-0 run and got right back into the game. Indiana closed within one on Ian Mahinmiâ€™s basket with 1:38 left, but David West lost the ball under the hoop on the next Pacers possession. Hawks 103, Thunder 93 ATLANTA â€” Paul Millsap scored 22 points, Jeff Teague added 17 and the Atlanta Hawks eclipsed the franchise record with their 15th straight victory, beating the Oklahoma City Thunder. Before a raucous sellout crowd, the Hawks won for the 29th time in 31 games to extend their Eastern-best record to 36-8. As usual, pretty much every one chipped in. Four starters were in double figures and backup point guard Dennis Schroder led a spurt at the start of the fourth quarter that helped the Hawks pull away. He finished with 13 points and five assists, igniting the arena with a towering finger roll that dropped gently through the net. Russell Westbrook led the Thunder with 22 points, but it wasnâ€™t enough to extend their four-game winning streak. Raptors 91, 76ers 86 PHILADELPHIA â€” Kyle Lowry scored 17 of his 21 points in the fourth quarter to lead the Toronto Raptors to a comeback victory over the Philadelphia 76ers. Patrick Patterson added 14 points and 13 rebounds for the Raptors, who overcame a ninepoint deficit with 5 minutes left. Pelicans 92, T-Wolves 84 MINNEAPOLIS â€” Newly minted All-Star starter Anthony Davis had 21 points and 12 rebounds to help the New Orleans Pelicans avoid what would have been another ugly road loss with a victory over the Minnesota Timberwolves. Eric Gordon scored 20 points and the Pelicans (22-21) shot 50 percent from the field to move over .500 for the first time since Jan. 2. New Orleans has won two in a row for the first time in more than a month. Gorgui Dieng had 14 points and 15 rebounds for the Timberwolves (7-35), who have the fewest wins in the league. Knicks 113, Magic 106 NEW YORK â€” Carmelo Anthony scored 25 points and the New York Knicks extended their season-high winning streak to three games with a victory over the Orlando Magic. Jason Smith added a seasonbest 19 points for the Knicks, who improved to 8-36. Lance Thomas had 16 points, and Langston Gal loway 15; both are in the midst of their second 10-day contract. Nikola Vucevic led the way for the Magic (15-31) with 34 points and 18 rebounds. Elfrid Payton finished with 11 assists. Orlando led 96-94 with 4:01 left after Tobias Harris com pleted a three-point play, but Gal loway gave the Knicks the lead right back with a 3-pointer. Bulls 102, Mavericks 98 DALLAS â€” Derrick Rose scored 20 points, Jimmy Butler had 14 of his 20 in the second half and the Chicago Bulls beat the Dallas Mavericks. The Bulls beat a Western Conference playoff contender for the second night in a row after losing six of their previous eight games. They handed defending champion San Antonio its most lopsided loss of the season in Chi cago on Thursday. AP Clevelandâ€™s LeBron James (23) shoots over Charlotteâ€™s Gary Neal, left, and Marvin Williams on Friday night. Ryan Palmer misses chance for 59 in Humana Challenge LA QUINTA, Calif. (AP) â€” Humana Challenge leader Matt Kuchar was asked if was sur prised that there have only been six 59s on the PGA Tour and that no one has shot 58. â€œNo. Weâ€™re talking about golf,â€ Kuchar said. â€œItâ€™s a difficult game. Itâ€™s a very challenging game. Fiftynine, thatâ€™s a lot under par. That is quite an amazing feat.â€ Ryan Palmer was in position to do it Friday after playing an eighthole stretch in 10 under. Needing to go 3 under on the final eight to shoot 59, he bogeyed the next two holes and ended up with an 11-under 61. â€œWalking off 10, after I got to 10 under, I was staying calm, try ing not to think about anything, just trying to keep my momentum going, my pace with my walk,â€ Palmer said. â€œItâ€™s hard not to think about it.â€ After opening with two pars, Palmer had two eagles and six birdies on the next eight holes to match the longest eagle-birdie streak in PGA Tour history. He stumbled with the bogeys on the par-4 second and par-3 third and couldnâ€™t get a couple of late putts to fall. â€œCouple loose swings there,â€ Palmer said. â€œI guess the bogeys did kind of calm me down a little bit more and I didnâ€™t worry about, obviously, the number.â€ Palmer birdied the fourth and sixth holes and made another on the par-5 eighth after missing an 8-foot eagle try. A 59 no longer possible, he missed a 6-foot birdie putt on the ninth in a closing par. The 38-year-old Texan holed out from 97 yards for eagle on the par-4 12th to start the streak on PGA Westâ€™s Jack Nicklaus Private Course. He birdied the next three holes, made a 20-foot eagle putt from the fringe on the par-5 16th and added three more birdies. â€œI putted well,â€ Palmer said. â€œI didnâ€™t make anything long, except for the eagle on 16.â€ He tied the birdie-eagle streak record set by Billy Mayfair in the 2001 Buick Open and matched by Briny Baird in the 2003 FUNAI Classic. Mayfair and Baird were 9 under during their runs, making seven birdies and an eagle. At 9-under 27, Palmer matched the tour record for relation to par for nine holes and was a stroke off the record of 26 set by Corey Pavin on a par-34 nine in Milwaukee in 2006. Six players have shot 59 on the PGA Tour. Al Geiberger did it in the 1977 Memphis Classic, Chip Beck in the 1991 Las Vegas Invitational, David Duval on the Palmer course in the final round of his 1999 Bob Hope victory, Paul Goydos in the 2010 John Deere Classic, Stuart Appleby in the 2010 Greenbrier Classic and Jim Furyk in the 2013 BMW Cham pionship. Ryo Ishikawa shot the lowest round on a major tour, a 58 to win the 2010 Crowns on the Japan Tour. Palmer had a 12-under 132 total after opening with a 71 on Thurs day at La Quinta Country Club. He was three strokes behind Kuchar. Kuchar, the highest-ranked player in the field at No. 11, had a 64 on the Nicklaus course. He tied for third last week in Hawaii in the Sony Open. â€œGame feels solid,â€ Kuchar said. â€œI feel like I know where itâ€™s going, feel like Iâ€™m hitting it in the center of the clubface.â€ Bill Haas and first-round leader Michael Putnam were a stroke back. Haas had a 63 at La Quinta. He had nine birdies in a 10-hole stretch, making seven in a row on Nos. 2-8. â€œThe putter was whatâ€™s got me in the hunt,â€ Haas said. â€œWe donâ€™t play better greens on tour than these greens here.â€ Putnam shot a 67 on the Arnold Palmer Private Course. Justin Thomas, Nick Watney and Scott Pinckney were 13 under. Thomas had a 63, Watney shot 64, and Pinckney 67 â€” all on the Nicklaus course. AP Ryan Palmer reacts after missing an eagle putt the eighth hole during the second round of the Humana Challenge on Friday.

From a very young age, I have had an affinity for those on the fringe, the disenfranchised, the marginalized. In my place and time this for me has meant solidarity with the poor, women, African-Americans, inmates, the mentally ill and those deemed unclean because of their sexual orientation. I deeply despise in every way everything about oligarchy in all its varied forms, and class and caste systems, but as long as they are the way the world divides, youâ€™ll find me flying low class and hanging with the outcast. I say blame it on my roots, but in truth they are only partially to blame. It is also a product of upbringing, the raw material of my soul long before I arrived, and my imaginationâ€™s captivation with the countercultural egalitarian first century Jewish Rabbi who changed the world. Billy Joel said, â€œIâ€™d rather laugh with the sinners than cry with the saints; the sinners are much more fun.â€ You could say that youâ€™ll always find me in the low places with the sinners rather than the high places with the saints, but a truer way to say it is that the sinners are the saints â€” or truer still that there are no saints, just honest and dishonest sinners. Jesus, who was condemned for being a friend of sinners, a drunk and a pimp, came into a world of sharply defined lines where everything was divided into what was seen as clean and unclean, pure and impure, holy and unholy, and demonstrated how ridiculous and dangerous such divisions are. Siddhartha, on his way to waking up, had to leave the high places he was born into and become intimate friends with the lowest of low places. These are some of the thoughts I have as I watch â€œDownton Abbey.â€ The series is set in the fictional Downton Abbey, a Yorkshire country house, the seat of the Earl and Countess of Grantham, and follows the lives of the aristocratic Crawley family and their servants during the reign of King George V. â€œDownton Abbeyâ€ is a fine, character-driven drama, neither melodramatic or meretricious, better in its first few seasons than now, but as I watch it, Iâ€™m often struck at how very silly and juvenile we humans can be. At Downton, every person has his or her place â€” and those places, from top to bottom, are prison cells. Why do we create and participate in oppressive structures that control and imprison us? Are we so afraid of freedom? Are we too insecure to be truly independent? Culture, with all its assumptions and conventions and customs, is a prison â€” ours no less than Downtonâ€™s. Part of the drama of â€œDownton Abbeyâ€ is the changing times, just the slightest hint of slightly more equality and opportunity, and itâ€™s heartbreaking and fascinating how many â€” the servants no less than the aristocracy â€” resist it with everything in themselves. Like Adam and Eve leaving the unconsciousness and immaturity of Eden or the Hebrews leaving the brutality and inhumanity of slavery in Egypt, we often want to rush back to the perceived pseudosafety of servitude and perpetual infantilism. Each week as we enter vicariously into the drama of Downton, my hope is that we are inspired to cast off the yoke of culture, to be brave enough to parole ourselves from the prisons of our own inaction, and to decide to be ruled by respect and equality and have as our primary custom that of kindness. There are those who say that one day we shall be free. One day there will be true equality. One day wealth wonâ€™t rule the world. One day weâ€™ll see an end to prejudice and oppression. Iâ€™m not among those. I wonâ€™t bet against human nature â€” not en masse. But until that day, youâ€™ll find me below stairs at Downton and everywhere else, with the servants, with the least, with my friends in low places.
