To date, her body has not been found after the suspicious disappearance in 1976. However, investigators still are convinced Benner was killed. And they claim to know who killed her, but have never been able to prove it. Along with specks of what investigators suspect is blood throughout the home, Benner’s then-3-year-old daughter is reported to have told a relative that on the day of Benner’s disappearance, “Mommy had to go away because she was bleeding from the stomach,” according to Bay County Sheriff’s Office records.

By BEN KLEINE 522-5114 | @BenKleinepcnh PANAMA CITY — In the first four months of this fiscal year, Panama City has spent $129,829 on legal and consulting fees to prepare for redevelopment of the city marina. The City Commission will hear an update on the project at 8 a.m. Tuesday at City Hall at 9 Harrison Ave. “We have itemized bills for what has been done,” Mayor Greg Brudnicki said. “It’s very hard to gauge what this should or should not cost.” Attorney Doug Sale — one of three primary attorneys for the project — said the reason the amount spent on legal and consulting fees is so high is that all the attorneys have been participating in an important part of the process: drafting an agreement called a Memorandum of Understanding with potential developers Great South and HomeFed. Brudnicki agreed the agreement is crucial. “Everybody has to know going in what their role is,” he said. A draft of the agreement was submitted to the commission Jan. 13, although the attorneys still are ironing out some details with Great South and HomeFed. “We’ve spent a lot of time,” said Sale, whose fee, just like the other two attorneys, is $250 an hour. The city has paid invoices to Real Estate Research Consultants Inc.; Harrison, Sale, McCloy; Chandler and Associates; Nabor Giblin and Nickerson; and Burke, Blue, Hutchison, Walters using the city’s budgeted amount for all the legal fees, $575,000. Among the tasks completed since Oct. 1, 2014, the beginning of the fiscal year, are: The Memorandum of Understanding, not yet approved by the commission.

Dallas-based Heritage Auctions said the Donald P. Dow collection brought top bids totaling $803,889. Heritage spokesman Eric Bradley said that’s double expectations. The lock of hair taken by Surgeon General Joseph K. Barnes shortly after Lincoln was shot by John Wilkes Booth sold for $25,000. An 1861 letter written by Booth to a friend boasting about his career and value as an actor also brought $30,000. A clipping of linen stained with Lincoln’s blood taken from his death bed sold for $6,000. Greg Dow said his father, who died five years ago, was fascinated with presidential assassinations. ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. Balloon crew launches, aims to break records After experiencing delays earlier this month, an international team aiming to break two major ballooning records finally launched a helium-filled balloon Saturday. Pilots Troy Bradley of Albuquerque, N.M., and Leonid Tiukhtyaev of Russia set off from Saga, Japan, shortly before 6:30 a.m. local time. “Everything went just like a textbook,” said Letitia Hill, social media director for the team’s mission control in Albuquerque. Unfavorable weather changes scuttled two previous launch attempts more than a week ago. The pilots are looking to reach North America, an attempt that will put them on course to break a distance record of 5,208 miles. They also want to break the flight-duration record set in 1978 when Ben Abruzzo, Maxie Anderson and Larry Newman made the first trans-Atlantic balloon flight. That record of 137 hours in the air in a traditional gas balloon is considered the holy grail of ballooning achievements. The team is expected to land in the next 5 days, Hill said. But where they will land is anyone’s guess. ATLANTA Bomb threat against 2 planes at Atlanta airport Police bomb and dog teams searched two planes at Atlanta’s main airport after authorities received bomb threats made online. The threats Saturday targeted Southwest Airlines Flight 2492, which arrived from Milwaukee, and Delta Air Lines Flight 1156, which arrived from Portland, Ore. A spokesman for Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport, Reese McCranie, said both flights arrived safely. NORAD spokesman Preston Schlachter said the military dispatched two F-16 fighter jets to shadow the planes until they arrived at the airport. Schlachter said the threats were made through Twitter. NEW YORK Man shoots family, kills himself In the quiet of a pre-dawn Saturday on a dead-end street, a father came home and shot his family in their heads, leaving women in three generations dead and a wounded 12-year-old girl calling 911, police said. “What I did, I cannot come back from,” Jonathon Walker told his brother by phone soon afterward, police said. And Walker did not come back — police said he killed himself in his car on a desolate street a few miles away, ending a burst of violence that stunned relatives who said the family hadn’t shown signs of trouble. The 34-year-old security guard had killed his 7-yearold daughter, Kayla Walker; his 31-year-old girlfriend, Shantai Hale; and Hale’s mother, Viola Warren, 62. His and Hale’s older daughter, whom a relative identified as Christina Walker, was hospitalized in stable condition, police said. Investigators were trying to trace Walker’s movements before the shooting as relatives struggled to comprehend shootings that struck them as inexplicable. “I can’t believe this happened. I can’t believe this happened,” Doreen Warren, the eldest victim’s mother, sobbed by phone. AP A pro-Russian rebel holds a Ukrainian flag found in a checkpoint captured by pro-Russian rebels, at the town of Krasniy Partizan, eastern Ukraine, on Saturday. The fighting continues despite several cease-fire declarations. Rockets kill 30 in Ukrainian city KIEV, Ukraine (AP) — Indis criminate rocket fire slammed into a market, schools, homes and shops Saturday in Ukraine’s southeastern city of Mariupol, killing at least 30 people, authori ties said. The Ukrainian president called the blitz a terrorist attack and NATO and the U.S. demanded that Russia stop supporting the rebels. Ukrainian officials rushed to defend the strategically important port on the Sea of Azov, beefing up military positions with more equip ment and sending in more forces. The separatists’ top leader declared that an offensive against Mariupol had begun — then later toned down his threats as the scale of the civilian casualties became clear. President Petro Poroshenko held an emergency meeting of his military officials and cut short a trip to Saudi Arabia to coordinate the government’s response. “The time has come to name their sponsors. The help given to militants, weapons deliveries, equipment and the training of manpower — is this not aiding terrorism?” Poroshenko said in a recorded statement. Russia insists it does not sup port the rebels, but Western mili tary officials say the sheer number of heavy weapons under rebel control belies that claim. An AP reporter saw convoys of pristine heavy weapons in rebel territory earlier this week. The rocket attacks came a day after the rebels rejected a peace deal and announced they were going on a multi-prong offensive against the government in Kiev to vastly increase their territory. The rebel stance has upended Euro pean attempts to mediate an end to the fighting in eastern Ukraine, which the U.N. says has killed nearly 5,100 people since April. Mariupol, a major city under government control, lies between mainland Russia and the Rus sia-annexed Crimean Peninsula. Heavy fighting in the region in the fall raised fears that Russianbacked separatist forces would try to capture city to establish a land link between Russia and Crimea. Ukraine’s Defense Ministry said three separate strikes from Grad multiple-rocket launchers hit Mariupol and its surrounding areas Saturday. “The area that came under attack was massive,” Mariupol mayor Yuriy Khotlubei said. “The shelling was carried out by mili tants. This is very clearly Russian aggression that has caused ter rible losses for the residents of the eastern part of our city.” The Donetsk regional govern ment loyal to Kiev said at least 30 people — including a 15-year old girl and a 5-year old boy — died in the attacks. A Ukrainian military checkpoint near the city also was hit and one serviceman was killed, the Defense Ministry said. The RIA Novosti news agency cited Ukrainian rebel leader Alex ander Zakharchenko as saying an offensive had begun on Mariupol. He spoke as he laid a wreath Sat urday where at least eight civil ians died when a bus stop was shelled Thursday in Donetsk, the largest rebel-held city in eastern Ukraine. Zakharchenko swiftly back tracked, however. He denied that his forces were responsible for Saturday’s carnage, saying it was caused by Ukrainian error. He also said the Ukrainian defenses positioned around Mariupol would be destroyed, but the city itself would not be stormed. But the Organization for Secu rity and Cooperation’s monitoring mission said the attack on Mari upol was caused by Grad and Uragan rockets fired from areas under rebel control. Rebel forces have positions six miles from Mariupol’s east ern outskirts. On Jan. 13, a bus near an army checkpoint north of Mariupol was hit by a shell, killing 13 people, an attack Ukraine also blamed on the separatists.

Recommendation of the final two develop ers by Owen Beitsch with Real Estate Research Consultants. Burke, Blue — the firm of city attorney Nevin Zim merman — has received $45,570, including a $22,400 payment Nov. 13 and a single check for $23,170 13 days later. Zimmerman said Les Burke has done some work on the project. None of what was paid by the city accounts for his normal fee as city attorney. Sale is the only attorney on the project for Harrison, Sale, McCloy. His firm has received $40,425, including a $14,962 check on Nov. 6, a $9,725 check on Dec. 4 and a $13,762 check on Jan. 13. Beitsch has received $32,990, including $20,477 on Jan. 7. Brudnicki said he believes all the city’s legal and consulting costs will be covered by the developer. Part of the Memorandum of Understanding requires the developers to submit $100,000 each. The city will keep the successful devel oper’s payment to defray the city’s cost incurred in the process. Brudnicki also is inter ested to find out what com pensation the city will get for using its land. On June 1, when the final developers’ proposals are due, the commission will have a firm idea of the financial picture of the proj ect and what the developers might promise in recruit ing tenants — including apartment managers, hotel chains, restaurants and retail businesses. IN THE AGREEMENT Highlights from the draft of the Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) include: The developer nancing and building water, sewer and stormwater infrastructure on the marina with the city owning and maintaining the infrastructure and paying the developer impact fees from anyone who connects. Any nancial support requested from the city must be limited to new revenues generated by the project. The project must be selfsupporting. Financial support for potential tenants is limited to taxincrement nancing, 1 percent business tax and reduced rent. The Community Redevelopment Agency is signing the MOU because a developer might ask for funding under the Downtown Redevelopment Plan. One of the city’s desires is to maintain ample public park space, access to the waterfront and recreational opportunities. The city nds that its operations could benet from a larger City Hall.

Possibly abducted from his residence at 115 Kimberly Circle in Callaway. trash can. It had been set on fire, BCSO reported. Benner’s disappearance is the oldest of 31 unsolved homicides and missing persons cases that make up the cold case files of Bay County. In the dim recesses of a closet, detailed in countless pages, are the files that have confounded investigators for as long as 38 years. Advancements in technology and techniques have helped solve many cold cases and also have prevented the trail of numerous homicides within the past decade from going cold in BCSO’s jurisdiction. In the remaining stacks are expansive binders of people believed to have either left on their own and will to not be heard from again, disappeared under suspicious circumstances or were killed with no one to answer for the crime. Cold cases Lining the cubicle of former Panama City Beach Police Chief Lee Sullivan are the faces of those who disappeared for reasons that don’t add up. “Sometimes it comes down to ‘no body, no crime,’ ” Sullivan said. Several agencies and an untold number of eyes have perused the pages and pages of findings that have accumulated over the years in thick dossiers. Sullivan volunteered to go over them again months ago. He has scanned the thousands of documents in 21 cases in what he calls “the tomb of doom” — BCSO’s cold case closet. “It’s like a Dumpster diver,” Sullivan said. “You can’t just look over the edge. You have to dig in and rummage around. If you don’t look through every page, you might miss something.” Most cold homicide cases have a suspect, Sullivan said, but some portion of the evidence has failed investigators along the way. The Benner case has been active since 1976. Investigators suspected someone close to her was responsible. Less than five years ago, investigators made advances they believed were going to lead to an arrest, but they fell through at the last minute. Investigators reportedly found blood in Benner’s house; DNA testing was not an option at the time, so they were unable to match the blood to Benner. Detectives sent some of the preserved evidence in the case for DNA testing recently, but it came back too old and disintegrated to make a match. DNA advancements DNA evidence now is crucial to successfully prosecuting most crimes. But besides using DNA to connect a person to a crime scene, career criminals can tell on themselves over time without knowing it. “The ability to extrapolate DNA now as opposed to back then is a world apart,” Sullivan said. DNA samples are collected and stored in all homicide investigations and most felony crimes. The DNA is filed away forever, always out there in a database just waiting for the right DNA sequence to join them. If that matching DNA is ever collected in a future case, a flag would pop up for investigators. “If we know they left a DNA profile, we get a warrant on that DNA,” said Capt. Jimmy Stanford, BCSO’s chief investigator. “Then the statute of limitations on that DNA does not run out.” BCSO has tried other avenues to collect information on cold cases. Panhandle CrimeStoppers issued decks of playing cards to state Department of Corrections inmates, with some cold cases featured on each card. As inmates played cards with the decks, investigators hoped they would help crack the cases. The experiment proved less successful than anticipated. Some inmates spun stories about the cold cases to cellmates to try to gain respect, Stanford said. “They just didn’t result in a case being cleared,” he said. “But we don’t regret those.” However, investigators have developed a complementary approach to the crucial first 48 hours after a person’s disappearance is considered suspicious. And since 2004, BCSO has implemented a sort of witness isolation technique to prevent a suspected homicide case from going cold. Cold case prevention Shortly after a group of “wannabe” gang members brutally beat a 17-yearold to death with baseball bats in 2004, BCSO began to use a technique that has proven quite successful and has even resulted in closing a few cold cases. When foul play is suspected, the sum of BCSO’s resources is called in for assistance, and sometimes even other agencies, Stanford said. “We don’t hesitate to call in other agencies,” he said. “If we need more help, we’ll go to other agencies. We call anybody and everybody.” The approach involves a lightning attack of witness and suspect isolation to corroborate or refute stories. It first was used in 2004 after members of the Crazy White Boys gang beat 17-year-old Jeffrey Shane Elliot to death with baseball bats following a botched drug deal, Stanford said. Elliot was attacked in the 6500 block of South Lagoon Drive the evening of June 2. They beat the teenager unconscious with a baseball bat after he tried to buy drugs from them, and he was left near a boat ramp to die, BCSO said. In October, deputies arrested several teenagers on charges related to Elliot’s death. To weed out the valid variations of numerous witness accounts, deputies interviewed several witnesses simultaneously and then compared notes to find the narrative. “It’s so labor intensive and we hadn’t done it like that before,” Stanford said. “It encompassed much of the agency, and that is something you can’t do every day.” Steven Bruce Fox Jr. was convicted of manslaughter for the beating and received eight years’ probation. That same year, investigators used the same strategy to charge three people in connection with the June 2002 shooting of 14-year-old Desmond Ray. Ray was shot once behind the left ear while he sat under a tree in a courtyard of Pana-Villa Garden Apartments. It was in retaliation for a shot he fired the day before at Eric Richardson. More than 18 months later, investigators organized. Five teens were arrested for plotting to kill Ray and many were sentenced to decades in prison. But it wasn’t the last cold case to be solved by witness isolation. “We’ve been able to clear three cold cases using that tactic,” Stanford said. Ongoing investigations The ultimate goal of Sullivan’s review of the cold cases is to deliver a suspect to justice and provide closure for the victim’s family. “When you lose someone, it’s different when you at least have something there,” Sullivan said. However, as time passes, the untapped avenues to investigate narrow. But while the faces peer out at the former police chief from the walls of his cubicle and the thick dossiers are still open for investigation, officers will strive for a resolution. “It’s important no one gets forgotten,” Sullivan said.

The scheduling shift, announced just before Obama left Washington, underscores the desert kingdom’s pivotal role in U.S. policy in the Middle East, including the mili tary campaign against the Islamic State group. Saudi Arabia’s status as one of Washington’s most important Arab allies has at times appeared to trump U.S. concerns about the terrorist funding that flows from the kingdom and about human rights abuses. White House spokesman Josh Earnest said Obama would meet on Tuesday with King Salman bin Abdul-Aziz Al Saud and other officials to “offer his con dolences on behalf of the Ameri can people.” The president called Salman from Air Force One to express his sympathies on the passing of his older brother. The White House said the king welcomed the news that Obama would be traveling to Riyadh. Obama’s pivot comes two weeks after the White House faced criti cism for not sending a high-level representative to Paris for a peace rally in the wake of terrorist attacks in France. The White House later said it was a mistake that someone with more stature than the U.S. ambassador to France had not joined the dozens of world leaders who marched arm in arm through the boulevards of Paris. White House officials said Obama’s stop in Saudi Arabia was not influenced by the Paris misstep, but it could keep simi lar criticism at bay as other world leaders head to Riyadh to offer condolences. Obama’s willingness to visit Saudi Arabia, a country with ties to the terrorists behind the Sept. 11 attacks, could give crit ics a fresh reason to question why the president did not stand with Western allies in a symbolic show of defiance against violent extremism. The schedule change meant that Obama, who was due to arrive in New Delhi on Sunday morning local time, would skip a visit to the Taj Mahal, India’s famed white marble monument of love. The rest of Obama’s travel itinerary was to remain intact, including meetings with Prime Minister Narendra Modi, a sum mit with U.S. and Indian business leaders, and his participation in the annual Republic Day festivities marking the enactment of India’s constitution. Modi, who took office in May, surprised the White House by invit ing Obama to attend the parade as his guest, the first time that honor has been bestowed on an Ameri can president. Possible GOP candidates pitch ideas at conservative forum TALKING POINT S “In a Republican primary every candidate is going to come in front of you and say I’m the most conservative guy that ever lived. Goshdarnit, whodidily, I’m conservative. You know what, talk is cheap. The word tells us you shall know them by their fruits ... Look every candidate in the eye and say ‘Don’t talk, show me.’” — Texas Sen. Ted Cruz “I’ve won the race for governor three times in the last four years. Three times, mind you, in a state that hasn’t gone Republican for president since I was in high school more than 30 years ago. How about that. You see, I think that sends a powerful message to Republicans in Washington and around the country that if you’re not afraid to go big and go bold you can actually get results.” — Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker “We don’t win because too many people don’t think we care about them. We have to show them not just by saying we do, but by having policies and a message where they can see it and feel it in us.” — Former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — The robust Christian right in early-voting Iowa plays an outsize role in helping determine the Republican presidential nominee, a political reality not lost on the parade of would-be 2016 candidates trying to draw attention at a Saturday gathering of social conservatives. New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas, Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker and many others turned the Iowa Freedom Forum into the unofficial launch of the next campaign for the Iowa caucuses. More than 1,000 religious conservatives met at a refur bished theater to hear their pitches. Cruz cited the Bible as he challenged caucus participants to back only presiden tial candidates with a proven conservative track record. In his remarks, Walker promoted his administration’s enactment of voter iden tification, concealed carry handgun and abortion restriction legislation — all redmeat issues to the conservative audience. For many Republicans, he is best known for beating back a recall effort and then winning re-election. Rick Santorum, the former senator from Pennsylvania who won the 2012 Iowa caucuses, said the GOP needs to do a bet ter job convincing working Americans that Republicans are on their side. The forum’s sponsor, Rep. Steve King of Iowa, opened the event by asking the crowd, “Do you believe that the next president of the United States is going to be speaking to you today?” The audience erupted in applause and King responded, “As do I.” Among others speaking at the forum were businesswoman Carly Fiorina, Dr. Ben Carson, former vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin and real estate mogul and real ity TV star Donald Trump. Missing were two possible candidates considered leading con tenders for the nomination: former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush and the party’s 2012 nominee, former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney. Trump let it be known that he didn’t think much of the pair. “You can’t have Romney. He choked,” Trump said. “You can’t have Bush. The last thing we need is another Bush.” Also missing from the lineup were Sens. Rand Paul of Kentucky and Marco Rubio of Florida. Few would pick Christie, an abortion rights and gay marriage opponent better known for his union and budget battles, to emerge as the favorite among Iowa’s evangelical voters. Yet his appearance could allow him to make inroads with a group focused as much on ideological purity as winning. AP Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker speaks Saturday during the Freedom Summit in Des Moines, Iowa.


NATIO N & WORLD Sunday, January 25, 2015 | The News Herald | Page A7 ATLANTA (AP) — A Texas lawmaker would strip the salaries from government officials who honor samesex marriage licenses. Other states would pro tect government officials who opt out of performing gay nuptials. In Georgia, where law makers are considering a bill that critics fear could allow businesses to discrim inate against gay custom ers, the former head of the country’s largest Protes tant denomination recently urged lawmakers to rein in “erotic liberty.” The U.S. Supreme Court will hear arguments in April and could decide by June whether gay couples can marry, and national opin ion polls show U.S. voters increasingly unopposed to gay rights. Yet lawmakers in a handful of states are back ing longshot legislation tar geting gay rights, doubling down on the culture wars. Most, if not all, of the efforts are led by Republicans. The bills are more politi cal theater than serious policy. Few seem to have widespread support among lawmakers, and senior Republicans are not adopt ing these efforts as their own. In Georgia, well-funded business groups oppose them. Still, the legislation remains popular with vocal and organized voting blocks in states or parts of the states where they’ve been proposed. But any politi cal points they score could come at a price. If the bills’ backers man age to force a sharp debate in coming weeks, and the Supreme Court rules in favor of gay marriage a few months later, supporters of the bills would be exposed to criticism that they’ve been fighting for a fringe issue. “On no issue during my 40-year career have opin ions moved as rapidly as they have on the issue of the morality of gay relation ships and ultimately gay marriage,” said Whit Ayres, a Republican consultant for Florida Sen. Marco Rubio, Tennessee Gov. Bill Haslam and the National Rifle Asso ciation. “When you have conservative organizations like the U.S. military and the Boy Scouts openly accepting gay members, the debate is close to being over.” Not in Georgia. In a devotional delivered to newly convened lawmak ers, the former president of the Southern Baptist Convention urged them to defend the freedom to act on religious beliefs, though he stopped short of endors ing legislation that support ers say would do precisely that. “We are a living in a society that is on a colli sion course with a choice between erotic liberty and religious liberty,” the Rev. Bryant Wright told lawmak ers. “Your role in govern ment is about restraining sin.” Georgia politicians rejected tougher legisla tion last year, avoiding a showdown that occurred over a similar bill in Ari zona, where Gov. Jan Brewer vetoed a measure the Republican-controlled Statehouse had adopted. This year, the tough est measure comes in Texas, where Republican state Rep. Cecil Bell has proposed stripping state and local officials of their salaries if they issue or honor same-sex marriage licenses. In 2005, Texas voters approved an amend ment to the state constitu tion banning gay marriage, but a federal judge struck it down last year. The judge stayed his ruling until an appeals court could con sider the issue. Republican lawmakers in South Carolina, Virginia and Utah have proposed giving government officials or wedding celebrants the right to opt out of gay nup tials if participating violates their religious beliefs. In Georgia, the debate flared this month when Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed fired the city’s fire chief after learning the chief selfpublished a book describing homosexuality as a perver sion. Reed, a Democrat, said the fire chief never got city permission to publish the book, but the fire chief said he did. DO YO UR FEET HURT? PA INFUL HEELS? BURNING OR NUMB FEET?

Page A8 | The News Herald | Sunday, January 25, 2015 NATIO N & WORLD DAKAR, Senegal (AP) — A top U.N. official in the fight against Ebola greeted just three patients at one treat ment center he visited this week in Sierra Leone. Fami lies in Liberia are no lon ger required to cremate the remains of loved ones to halt the spread of the virulent disease. And in the streets of Guinea’s capital, it is rare to see the formerly ubiquitous plastic buckets of bleach and water for hand washing. Ten months after it dawned on health offi cials that they were facing an unprecedented Ebola outbreak in West Africa, experts and officials agree the tide is turning, although previous lulls have proved short-lived. There is still no vaccine or licensed treatment, nor is it clear whether the inter national community has actually learned any lessons from an epidemic that killed at least 8,675 people. “Things have changed drastically for the better — no one can deny that,” said Aitor Sanchez Lacomba, Liberia country director for the International Res cue Committee. “How can we make sure that we don’t have these kinds of situa tions in the future?” Previous disease out breaks, including SARS and bird flu, prompted calls to build strong health sur veillance systems and to reinforce agencies like the World Health Organization. But little has changed. After the 2009 swine flu pandemic, WHO commis sioned an independent review, which recommended creating a $100 million emergency fund for health crises and beefing up rapidresponse health experts. Neither has been done. The human toll of Ebola can be starkly seen in one plot of land in Liberia’s cap ital where only Ebola vic tims are buried now. Cards placed on sticks and stuck into the ground carry the names of those who died. One day, families hope they will be replaced with con crete gravestones marking the years of birth and death as sunrise and sunset. “Recriminations are counterproductive, but it will be necessary to under stand whether this outbreak could have been responded to quicker with less cost and less suffering,” U.N. Ebola chief, Dr. David Nabarro, told the U.N. General Assembly earlier this week. Julius Kamara, a father to two girls who remain home instead of going to school, said sometimes the plastic buckets in Sierra Leone’s capital for hand-washing are now empty. There are fewer checkpoints, restric tions on movements are being lifted but gatherings are banned and bars and clubs are closed. “We are all looking for ward to when life can get back to normal,” he said. Sierra Leone plans to reopen schools in March, following Guinea which opened them this week. Liberia is set to reopen schools on Feb. 2. “The epidemic has turned,” Ismael Ould Cheikh Ahmed, the new head of the U.N. Mission for Ebola Emergency Response known as UNMEER, recently declared. The number of cases in Guinea and Sierra Leone is at its lowest since August, and in Liberia it’s the lowest since June. Still, he and other officials caution that they lack criti cal information about the cases that do remain. Only about half of new cases in Guinea and Liberia are from known contacts, meaning that the remainder are get ting infected from unknown sources. No such statistics even exist for Sierra Leone, where deaths still are being under reported because families want to carry out burials in accordance with tradition, which involves touching bodies — one of the quickest ways to spread Ebola. “There are still numbers of new cases that are alarm ing, and there are hotspots that are emerging in new places that make me believe there is still quite a lot of the disease that we’re not see ing,” said Nabarro, the U.N. Ebola chief. The outbreak has not killed as many people as some predictions. At its height, one estimate warned that as many as 1.4 mil lion people could become infected by mid-January if there were no additional interventions. Instead, the probable, suspected and con firmed case toll is 21,797 with 8,675 deaths. MOV ING FOR WA RD Pe rsonal Ba nk ing . Le nding So lutions . In ve stmen ts . No w Mo re Co nv enien t.

Page A10 | The News Herald | Sunday, January 25, 2015 NATIO N & WORLD TOKYO (AP) — Prime Minister Shinzo Abe angrily demanded Sunday that the extremist Islamic State group release a Japanese journalist it is holding hos tage after a new online video purported to show that another hostage had been killed. While the Japanese gov ernment and others cast doubt on the authenticity of the video, President Barack Obama issued a statement condemning what he called “the brutal murder” of one of the hostages. His statement did not say how the United States knows that Haruna Yukawa, a 42-year-old adven turer, is dead, and the Japa nese government still was trying to verify the video. Obama said in his state ment that the United States will stand “shoulder to shoul der” with Japan and called for the immediate release of the second Japanese hos tage, journalist Kenji Goto. Obama’s statement was issued at Ramstein Air Base in Germany as the president was en route to India for a visit. The Japanese govern ment had no immediate com ment on Obama’s statement. However, a statement issued by Abe in English and Arabic demanded the safe release only of Goto. The message in the video seen Saturday demanded a prisoner exchange for the 47-year-old Goto. But the post was deleted quickly Saturday, and militants on a website affiliated with the Islamic State group ques tioned its veracity. Still, Abe said after a late-night Cabinet meeting: “Such an act of terrorism is outrageous and impermis sible and causes me noth ing but strong indignation. I resolutely condemn this act.” The Associated Press could not verify the con tents of the message, which varied greatly from previ ous videos released by the Islamic State group, which now holds a third of both Syria and Iraq. The Islamic State group had threatened on Tuesday to behead the men within 72 hours unless it received a $200 million ransom. Kyodo News agency reported that Saturday’s video was emailed to Goto’s wife. Patrick Ventrell, a spokes man for the White House National Security Council, said U.S. intelligence officials were also working to confirm whether it was authentic. Abe said the government of Japan will not succumb to terrorism and will continue to cooperate with the inter national community in the fight against terrorism. “I strongly demand that Mr. Kenji Goto not be harmed and be immediately released,” he said. Japanese diplomats left Syria as the civil war there escalated, compounding the difficulty of reaching the mili tants holding the hostages.

WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — The recent plunge in fuel prices has been a welcome relief across the agricultural sector, helping ease the pain of low grain prices for grow ers and boosting profits for cattle ranchers. “Every movement we make in farming takes fuel,” Kansas cattle rancher and hay grower Randy Cree said. Livestock producers in the Midwest and vegetable growers in the Sun Belt alike are reaping the immediate benefits. And with average retail gas prices for 2015 forecast to be about $1 lower than last year, farmers this spring might end up plant ing more energy-intensive crops, such as corn or rice, as the cost to irrigate and cultivate drops. Consumers, however, shouldn’t expect to see lower prices at the supermarket. Transportation costs con stitute only a small slice of those prices, and it takes months, if ever, for cost savings at the farm level to trickle to the shelf sticker. For years, Cree hasn’t been able to afford to fill the fuel tanks at his farm west of Lawrence. But with the local price of untaxed diesel and regular gaso line both below $2 a gallon, Cree plans to completely fill the two 300-gallon and one 200-gallon tanks. It takes fuel to feed his 100 cows all winter long, fuel to drive to the feed store. The lower prices will also make “a big difference” this summer. Each time he harvests his hay, his tractor must make three trips over every field — one to mow it, one to rake it, and another to bale it. “We are hoping that for the first time in a long, long time to have the burden of high fuel prices off our backs — so we can maybe make a little bit of money this year,” Cree said. Farmers use mostly offroad diesel, for which they don’t pay federal and state taxes, in their tractors and other farm equipment. While diesel averages about 20 cents per gallon more than regular gasoline, road taxes alone can add 14 per cent more at the pump. On-road diesel prices nation wide are forecast to aver age $1.86 a gallon this year — well below the $2.81 per gallon in 2014. And looking into 2016, prices are forecast to average $2.30 a gallon for on-road diesel, according to the U.S. Energy Information Administration. That’s good news for farmers who depend on row crops, and who’ve seen farm income drop by as much as 50 percent because of low grain prices. Lower energy prices increase planted acres for most major row crops and drop the price of the com modity, according to an April 2014 federal study on the impact crude oil prices have on agriculture. Nearly 20 percent of operating costs for major U.S. row crops are tied to direct energy expenses, the Economic Research Service’s study showed. Vance Ehmke, who grows wheat near Healy in western Kansas, said low diesel fuel prices will “definitely help,” but might not be enough. “On one level, fuel going down is really going to save us $20,000 to $25,000 — which is a nice chunk of change,” Ehmke said. “However, the other side of the coin is that while we have had a col lapse in the oil market, we also have had a collapse in the grain market.” Low diesel prices relief for agriculture

(AP) — Gunfire erupted during a crowded party in a vacant house in Omaha early Saturday, leaving three people dead and five wounded, and most witnesses refusing to help investigators, according to police. As many as 50 people were in and around the small home when shots were fired “by multiple shooters” about 2 a.m., Omaha Police Chief Todd Schmaderer said. No arrests have been made, and police said they were confident the shoot ings were gang-related. The vast majority of people at the scene refused to help police, the chief said during a news conference Satur day evening. He said he understood wit nesses’ fear but pleaded for them to come forward. “Now that you are away from that scene and have opportunity to be away from any intimidation, I’m asking you for the sake of the community to contact law enforcement,” Schmaderer said. Police said 19-year-old JaKela Foster and 24-year-old Latecia Fox were declared dead at the scene, while 26-year-old Cam eron Harris died several hours later. Schmaderer said it’s unclear if the victims were intended targets or bystanders. Foster’s mother, Kristina Young, waited for hours outside the small, tan house in the city’s northeast side while investi gators gathered evidence. She said she wasn’t going to leave until the body of her daughter was taken away. Young said her boyfriend got a call from an aunt shortly before 2 a.m. telling him there was a shooting that may have involved Foster, who had a 1-year-old son. She said a friend later called to say Foster had been shot. Young said her daughter knew the per son throwing the party. She said she asked her daughter not to go, knowing there would be drinking and worried there could be violence. “I’ve been in Omaha long enough to know generally what happens at these par ties,” she said. She said her daughter agreed and told her she was going elsewhere Friday night, but that she apparently went to the party anyway. “To the person who pulled the trigger, I want to say it’s just senseless. It just needs to stop. I now have a 1-year-old grandson that has no mother,” Young said while fight ing back tears. The five people who were wounded were identified as Adrelet Bush, 25; Treveon Lil lard, 20; Trenelle Miller, 21; Johnny Tiller, 21; and Jordyn Zyla, 20. Schmaderer said they were in stable condition late Saturday afternoon, though other details about their conditions weren’t released. Police were investigating whether the shooting was related to another shooting that happened just blocks away about four hours earlier that injured a man and a woman. Schmaderer said that shooting was also gang-related. RIYADH, Saudi Arabia (AP) — World leaders and top dignitaries began arriving in Saudi Arabia on Saturday to give their condolences following the death of King Abdullah, who died early Friday at age 90 after almost two decades at the helm. Despite deep tensions and rivalries between the nations, Iran’s Foreign Min ister Mohammad Javad Zarif was among the first to arrive to the Sunni-ruled king dom on Saturday where he was greeted at the airport by the late king’s son, Prince Turki, who is governor of Riyadh. Saudi state TV showed Zarif walking with the prince down a red carpet on the tarmac. The newly enthroned King Salman also is expected to receive in the coming days U.S. President Barack Obama, Egyptian President Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi, Japan’s Crown Prince Naruhito, Spain’s King Felipe VI, Jordan’s King Abdullah, Den mark’s Crown Prince Frederik, Dutch King Willem-Alexander, and the United King dom’s Prince Charles. Morocco’s Prince Moulay Rachid will pay his respects on the behalf of his brother King Moham med VI. Talk of Zarif visiting Saudi Arabia last year quickly dissipated after Iran pro tested comments made by Saudi Arabia’s Foreign Minister Saud al-Faisal in which he called on Tehran to withdraw its “occu pying forces” from Syria, Yemen and Iraq. Iran insists it has no combat forces on the ground in any of the three countries, though it says it has sent senior com manders as advisers to Syria and Iraq. The diplomatic squabble, in many ways, exemplified how Abdullah’s most pressing priority was to confront the Shi ite powerhouse across the Gulf. The mul tiple conflicts across the region deepened Sunni-Shiite hatreds and fueled militancy during his reign.

Have a happy Sunday, everybody! Put on a happy face and plan something special! I wanted cold, so I got cold. Am I fed up with it now? The short answer is yes. Let those rays hit me, baby. This cold is for the birds. The sun through the glass burns your face. Step outside and you get frostbite from the bitter winds. That’s crazy, mixed-up Florida. What part of we’re a tourist town don’t some locals get? They can’t pick and choose who comes here to visit to suit them. Come one. Come all. “Fees mount for marina preparation.” More out-of-control spending, and this seems to be the par for most of Bay County. “My Life & Times in Panama City” will hit the bookshelves in March. Do I mention any of you? Well, that’s for me to know and you to find out. Gas is $1.95 a gallon. Milk, $4.25 a gallon. Ground beef, $5 a pound. Something is wrong here. Cops should be able to stop texting drivers and ticket them. They are nothing more than a menace to society. It’s all about them. So selfish. Fun time bowling again, but I was better as a teenager than I am as a senior. You can pay to educate or you can pay to incarcerate. The latter is much more expensive but you will cry about it either way. If you are getting “free” anything, some of us are paying for it. Trim testing of high school students to once a year and use the funds to pay for community college for all. It’s like a scene from “The Fog” in Fort Walton. I’m a bit scared the old dead sea dogs will rise up from the ocean and come looking for me. Has Bay Dunes been taken over by Holiday Golf Club? If so, I hope they keep the prices reasonable for everyone. Beach golf prices too high. Readers sound off Squall Line appears daily. Call 850-522-5133, or go to and click on the “Squall Live” icon.

He said it could be a joint effort of government and the residents. “One of the nice things with participation is it precludes people from just throwing up a wish list,” Gisbert told the council. “Because when there is a buy in, there is a little bit of thought. It isn’t just, ‘I want, I want, I want.’ I’m willing to spend a little bit — it means it really means something to them.” Residents say the existing single exit in and out of the subdivision has become a death trap as cars turn in different directions as they stack up in the median cut at the intersection of Fairway Boulevard and Back Beach Road. A crash at the intersection last Sept. 30 killed Carolyn Smith, of Vernon, when she pulled her 2001 Ford Taurus into the path of a 1997 Ford F150 pickup truck driven by Janie Forthier, of Youngstown, according to Panama City Beach Police. The entrance and exit also is used by Holiday Golf Club. The city staff has been evaluating a possible east-west side road that would run parallel to Back Beach Road and link Fairway Boulevard a couple of blocks to either Clara Avenue or Nautilus Street. If either one of those roads were built, Colony Club residents and golf club patrons could pull out onto Back Beach Road at a traffic light. Gisbert said if the two-lane road with sidewalks moves forward, he would recommend closing the median at Fairway Boulevard. He said Bay County has a paving participation plan in which the county can fund 60 percent of a project’s costs and the residents pay the other 40 percent. “It doesn’t preclude the county from utilizing some DOT funds, some grant funds, stormwater,” he said. “There are other different venues for them to get those funds.” Colony Club resident Margaret PCB might ask residents to help pay for exit ANDREW WARDLOW | New Herald le photo Vehicles crowd the median cut as they wait to turn onto Back Beach Road while exiting the Colony Club subdivision in Panama City Beach.

By COLLIN BREAUX 747-5081 | @CollinBreaux PANAMA CITY — Jake Jacob says he has been interested in fossils since he was 5 years old. He showed off that passion with his collection of petrified wood Saturday at the Panama City Gem and Mineral Show. “My hobby is fossils,” said Jacob, who is 54. His interest started when he picked up stones as a kid, and it blossomed from there. He said he tried to integrate education into his display for children who visited his booth at this weekend’s show at the Bay County Fairgrounds. Visitors browsed among rows of minerals and gems displayed by vendors from as far away as southwest Florida, Dallas and Illinois. “This year it’s gotten bigger,” event organizer Steven Shipton said of the 24th annual show, which continues today. “It’s a big deal.” A customer who identified himself only as Mark also has a long-running passion for the earthen goods. Mark said he is a smith worker and attends conventions to buy materials to use. “I’ve been collecting my whole life since I was 6 years old,” Mark said. It’s the same for Shipton, who is a member of the Panama City Gem and Mineral Society. He said he has collected items for 40 years, and focuses on “cabinet size” rocks and minerals. “They call my house the museum,” Shipton said. A gem of a show WANT TO GO?

By JIM TURNER The News Service of Florida TALLAHASSEE — A Pinellas County lawmaker has filed a wide-ranging bill intended to end the appearance of cozy relationships between state utility regulators and power companies. The bill (SB 288), filed by Sen. Jack Latvala, R-Clearwater, also takes aim at the amounts electric utilities can charge customers for deposits, seeks to limit rate increases imposed through extended billing cycles and requires members of the Florida Public Service Commission to complete ethics training similar to the training lawmakers receive. “As an elected representative of people who have to pay electric bills, I have a responsibility to say enough is enough, and we need to try to rein in some of those practices,” Latvala said. “And the worst situation that has been allowed to develop is the coziness between the investor-owned utilities and the Public Service Commission. That’s staff and many, not all, of the commissioners.” The proposal also would require utilities to help customers get the most advantageous rates available and calls for the commission to periodically hold hearings and conferences outside of Tallahassee. Also, it would require that anyone who lobbies a member of the Public Service Commission Nominating Council to register as a lobbyist. The governor selects Public Service Commission members from lists of names submitted by the nominating council. Latvala’s bill was filed the same day former state Rep. Jimmy Patronis, a Republican from Panama City, was sworn in as a member of the PSC and Commissioner Julie Brown was sworn in for a second four-year term. “It’s unethical for me to have an opinion,” Patronis said of the bill. “We serve at the will of the Legislature. That’s their prerogative.” Patronis said he attended ethics workshops when he was a representative and went through ethical scenarios during new-member training for the PSC. One of those instances was that if he overhears conversation of a potential issue to come before the PSC, he must Utilities, regulators ties targeted SEE UTILITIES | B6

Kent-Forest Lawn Funeral Home 2403 Harrison Ave. Panama City, FL 32405 850-763-4694 Charles L. Fox 1931 – 2015 CHARLES FOX On Jan. 20, the angels welcomed a smiling face as they sang their peaceful songs to welcome Michael Darryl Swinney into Heaven. He was American Indian born on April 29, 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 ... “Smokey and the Bandit” and the Rocky 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 Ave., Panama City with the Rev. Darwin Glass officiating. The family will receive friends from 6-8 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 27, 2015, at the funeral home. Those desiring may make memorial donations at kpk6qk or to the Swinney Family, 180 Hitchcock Road, Southport, Florida 32409. Expressions of sympathy may be viewed or expressed at www. Kent-Forest Lawn Funeral Home 2403 Harrison Ave. Panama City, Fla. 32405 850-763-4694 Michael Darryl Swinney MICHAEL SWINNEY Lucy Campbell Council, born Dec. 15, 1943, peacefully passed away on Jan. 23, 2015, in her hometown of Panama City, Fla. She was preceded in death by her husband, Maurice (Bubba) Council, of Tallahassee, Fla.; parents, Ira and Carolyn Campbell, and sister, Jo Carolyn Brubaker of Panama City, Fla. She is survived by her daughter, Michelle Council, and partner, Regina Roat, in addition to cousins, Peggy Grapp of Valley, Ala., Bill Campbell of Marietta, Ga., and Mimi Young of Prattville, Ala.; niece, Betsy Wicklein of Athens, Ga.; nephew, David Brubaker of Gretna, La.; and brotherin-law, Lewis Brubaker of Panama City, Fla. Lucy was educated through the Bay County school system and graduated from Bay High School in 1961. Her many friends could often be found at The Hangout down at the beach and by Lucy’s own admission she could be rightfully blamed for many youthful shenanigans. Lucy graduated with her B.S. degree in nursing in 1965 from Florida State University and thus began a career initially dedicated to direct patient care. She then moved to administration where she consistently sought ways to improve quality of care and create new treatment programs. After they both graduated from FSU, Lucy and Bubba began their professional lives in 1966 in Bennettsville, S.C., where she was a nurse at Bennettsville Memorial Hospital and he started his career as a federal agent with Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms. She later became director of nursing services in 1968 at the Chesterfield County Memorial hospital in Cheraw, S.C. After Bubba was transferred to Jacksonville, Fla., and subsequently to Gulf Breeze, Fla., Lucy focused on raising Michelle, which was a full-time job in itself, in addition to supporting school and civic organizations. For example, she started the first local blood bank for the Villa Venyce residential community in Gulf Breeze and developed a women’s self-protection class with the Escambia County Sherriff’s Department. After relocating to Naperville, Ill., a suburb of Chicago, Lucy resumed her health care career and served in numerous leadership positions including director of orthopedics at the Glen Ellen Health Center, director of outpatient services and subsequently section director of patient affairs at Lutheran General Hospital. One of her many accomplishments during her tenure at Lutheran General was the establishment of a lithotripsy treatment program. She later became administrator of Nessett Health Care system in Chicago where she established their first infertility treatment center. In Greenville, S.C., she was administrator for the Greenville Hospital Home Health and Hospice, which was the largest in the state. She then moved to the Roger Pease Rehabilitation Facility as director of patient admissions and program development. After “retiring” back to Panama City in the late 1990s, Lucy served as the director of case management at Gulf Coast Hospital. During her “retirement,” Lucy and Bubba lived in Bay Point, where she was active in clubs such as Panama City Beach Kiwanis, Bay Point Architectural Review and Security Committees. She continued to support her passion for health care by serving as an advisory board member for Gentiva Health Care, Care South Home Health Care and Lisenby Home Health care. She served as a student mentor for the Bay Education Foundation, which was one of her greatest joys. As a person, Lucy had a great capacity for caring and supporting the needs of others. She was known for her drive and determination and expected such from others. She would challenge you but support you on your journey as she had the capacity to see the potential in others when sometimes they themselves could not. She was tenacious in life and stubborn to heed her Maker’s calling. There was no “quit” in Lucy and she gave us the very best she had until her final hour. Lucy had many passions in life, among them a love for the beach where so many of her memories were made, fishing, kitties and her many, many friends. The family will receive friends at the funeral home on Wednesday, Jan. 28, from 4-7 p.m. Funeral services will be held at 10 a.m. on Thursday, Jan. 29 at the Cornerstone Baptist Church. Interment will follow at Greenwood Cemetery. An endowed scholarship in her name will be created at the Florida State School of Nursing. She requested no flowers but to send donations to her scholarship to: The FSU Foundation 2010 Levy Avenue Bldg. B Ste. 300 Tallahassee, FL. 32306 With your donation, please include a note that this is to be directed to the Lucy Campbell Council Scholarship in Nursing. Any donation amount is welcome. The family would like to extend their heartfelt thanks to the nursing and respiratory therapy staff in the Surgical Intensive Care Unit at Bay Medical Center. Their care for Lucy and compassion for our family was a true blessing. Special thanks to Glenn, Lisa, Linda, Melissa, Morgan, Ally, Michael and Chloe. We are forever indebted to you. Wilson Funeral Home Family Owned Since 1911 214 Airport Road Panama City, Fla. 850-785-5272 Lucy Campbell Council LUCY COUNCIL Col. Cary Anderson Thompson Jr., Ret., beloved husband for 60 years to his wife, Helene, went home to be with the Lord on Jan. 13, 2015. He lived an abundantly rich and meaningful life for 94 years. Cary was raised in Lynchburg, Va., “in God’s country” as he liked to say — with a wink. He graduated from Hampden Sydney College in 1942, where he was a member of Sigma Chi fraternity. During World War II, he served as an Army Air Corps communications officer in India. En route to Bombay on an Army transport ship, Cary met Helene Werden, who was with the American Red Cross. In an initial encounter on deck, Cary asserted that he planned to marry a woman who could cook spoon bread, to which Helene replied, “I wish I could cook spoon bread.” After V-E Day, Cary received permission to marry Helene in Calcutta in July of 1945, followed by a memorable honeymoon bear hunting. As newlyweds, Cary pursued postgraduate work at the University of Chicago. He studied under two renowned psychologists — Dr. Carl Rogers, a pioneer in a humanistic, client-centered approach to counseling, and Dr. Louis Thurstone, a major contributor to measurement of intelligence and to factor analysis. Cary rejoined the military in the late 1940s. For the next decade, he applied his psychology and psychometric training as a branch chief at the Pentagon and in assignments at Maxwell and Langley Air Force bases. In the 1960s, he served as the Air Force Academy’s Registrar and as the Security Wing Commander at Misawa Air Force Base in Japan. A meaningful part of his military career was counseling and dispensing advice to young soldiers. Cary and Helene were devoted to one another. They shared a rich spiritual life and many joys in their military posts and in raising three children. After retiring to Panama City in the early 1970s, they celebrated each anniversary at Wakulla Springs. A memorable highlight at the springs was their 50th anniversary celebration, which was officiated by the same pastor who married them in India. Cary cared deeply about his family and people from all walks of life. Cary and Helene offered help in many forms to persons in need, including family, friends, elderly neighbors and the homeless. In addition to reaching out personally to assist individuals, Cary supported the work of the Panama City Rescue Mission in providing shelter for persons in need and hope for a better life. For three decades, Cary championed improving mental health services as a board member of Mental Health America (MHA) of Bay County. He contributed to and helped raise funds for MHA and contributed to the buying of gifts and food for “Project Cheer” — a popular annual Christmas party for more than 400 residents at Florida State Hospital in Chattahoochee. Cary is preceded in death by his wife, Helene, and his parents, Cary and Addie (Wright) Thompson. Cary is survived by three children, Cary Thompson III, Sara Thompson and Nancy Crane; four grandchildren, Stuart Thompson, Cary Thompson IV, Kimberly Crane and Devin Crane; and four great-grandchildren, Anna, Samuel, Nicholas and David Thompson. The family would like to thank the staff at Clifford Chester Sims State Veterans Nursing Home for their exceptional efforts to honor and enhance the lives of veterans in this area, including Cary’s. We also wish to thank Covenant Hospice. A memorial service will be held at 11 a.m. on Saturday, Feb. 14, 2015, at St. Andrews Episcopal Church, 1608 Baker Court, in Panama City, Fla. In lieu of flowers, those desiring may consider a memorial donation in Cary’s name to: 1) Panama City Rescue Mission, P.O. Box 2359, Panama City FL 32402, or 2) Mental Health America Bay County at 1137 Harrison Ave., Panama City, FL 32401 with “Project Cheer Christmas Party” in the memo line. Cary Jr., Your love and caring for others on this Earth knew no boundaries. We will cherish the memories as the heavens open to receive a good man.

A road to Clara would require 2,360 feet of property whereas the Nautilus route only would require 1,406 feet. “There is the one residen tial lot (going to Nautilus),” Gisbert said. “It has some wetlands crossing.” He added that most of the property is owned by St. Joe Co. and is uplands. “So it might not be that complicated,” he said. “It still requires coordinating with the St. Joe Co.” Councilwoman Josie Strange said she thinks the exit should be the city’s responsibility. “This place is unique in the fact that there is only one way in and one way out, and it wasn’t an issue 15 years ago or 30 years ago or 50 years ago when it was built,” Strange said. “It’s an issue now not only for (Colony Club residents), but people travel ing east and west.” Gisbert said he planned to talk to St. Joe officials Mon day about the cost and other factors to build the road to Nautilus. Gisbert said a workshop should be held at a later date to talk to Colony Club residents. “Let’s face it, there might be a resident or two in here that may or may not like the idea,” he said. “Again, we’re talking ideas.” Mayor Gayle Oberst said the city doesn’t have a pro cedure for communities to get this kind of a project, and wanted Gisbert to bring that back. “And then give us a little bit more hard facts,” Oberst said. The following public meetings are scheduled this week: Monday What: Parker special call audit meeting When: 2 p.m. Where: 1001 West Park St. Tuesday What: Panama City Commission When: 8 a.m. Where: 9 Harrison Ave. What: Informational Pan ama City bed tax meeting When: 3 p.m. Where: 9 Harrison Ave. What: Callaway City Commission When: 6 p.m. Where: 500 Callaway Parkway Wednesday What: Downtown Improvement Board When: 4 p.m. Where: 413 Harrison Ave. What: Panama City-Bay County Airport and Indus trial District When: 9 a.m. Where: Northwest Flor ida Beaches International Airport, second floor termi nal building G O V E RNM E N T Calendar UTILITIES from Page B1 report it to the general counsel. “I’m erring on the side of caution,” he said. “I have to train myself not to have as much of an opinion.” Patronis said the main difference from his old position is that the PSC generally is reactive whereas the Leg islature is active. He praised the lawmakers and said from his own experience that he believes the legislation was born from constituent concern. “They’re fresh off the campaign trail,” Patronis said. “They’ve done a lot of door-knocking.” Duke Energy Florida spokesman Sterling Ivey said the company is monitoring Latvala’s proposal as well as other legislation directed at electric providers. “We look forward to reviewing the proposed legislation and working with state lawmakers to ensure any final bill is fair for all Duke Energy customers in Florida,” Ivey wrote in an email. While power companies in Flor ida, dominated by Duke and Florida Power & Light, are highly influen tial in the Capitol, Latvala said he’s been assured the proposal will be heard in committee and get “serious consideration.” Susan Glickman, Florida director for the Southern Alliance for Clean Energy, which has frequently clashed with the Public Service Commission, said Latvala’s proposal “is a start.” “It’s good that there is attention being paid to that,” Glickman said. “If you can take the money out of it, then their influence will be limited.” Last March, a report from the Tallahassee group Integrity Florida argued that $18 million contributed to political campaigns by power com panies between 2004 and 2012 helped advance the interests of shareholders over customers.

Sports PANAMA CITY NEWS HERALD SUNDAY January 25, 2015 Section C Facebook: Twitter: @NH_Sports Hey guys, you don’t have to pay for ’em There is a fallback reference some of us get better accustomed with as we age. Conversationalists who are more youthful get frustrated at some of our comments, and ultimately many default to the phrase, “Oh, you’re so old school.” It isn’t intended as a compliment. It’s just that some of us believe that conduct is guided by a certain code that has nothing to do with any school of thought. I would suppose that the contrast is being completely spontaneous in every endeavor, which certainly has its place. I don’t know where that place exists, because I would hope anyone would react with consistency given the same set of circumstances at various intervals. But the accusers also infer that being old school means you believe the past always was better than the present, which has no validity. The past is just the past, and ain’t happening anymore, so all of us need to move on. No problem with that. I merely don’t want my value system attacked because someone doesn’t believe in it, or more likely hasn’t taken the time to understand it. To avoid any confusion, this code governs how some of us view sports in general. With that preamble, realize that in the future you just might be referred to as “Old School” if • You can remember when the ground caused a fumble, and still think that it does. • You believe television sports broadcasting peaked with Dizzy Dean and Pee Wee Reese announcing baseball’s Game of the Week. • It would bring a smile to your face to see a basketball player shoot free throws underhand. • You’ll never be convinced that Barry Bonds and Roger Clemens didn’t cheat, but it doesn’t keep you up at night and you think that some day they’ll be enshrined in Cooperstown. • You don’t care one iota about how much or little the footballs were inflated last weekend in New England. Isn’t there a pretty big game this coming weekend? And wasn’t the story of New England’s 45-7 romp its defense? • You wish you were in the crowd when St. Louis manager Johnny Keane motioned for catcher Tim McCarver to go out and talk with pitcher Bob Gibson, and in language much more colorful than what follows Gibson told McCarver to get off his mound because the only thing he knew about pitching was that he couldn’t hit it. • You marvel at how anyone can teach without Sports Beat Pat McCann Executive Sports Editor SEE M c CANN | C2 The Associated Press Even as the Chicago Cubs lost one game after another, Ernie Banks never lost hope. That was the charm of “Mr. Cub.” Banks, the Hall of Fame slugger and two-time MVP who always maintained his boundless enthusiasm for baseball despite decades of playing on miserable teams, died Friday night. He was 83. The Cubs announced Banks’ death, but did not provide a cause. Banks hit 512 home runs during his 19-year career and was fond of saying, “It’s a great day for baseball. Let’s play two.” In fact, that sunny finish to his famous catchphrase adorns his statue outside Wrigley Field. “His joyous outlook will never be forgotten by fans of the Cubs and all those who love baseball,” Commissioner Bud Selig said in a statement. And on a cold winter night Friday in Chicago, the ballpark marquee carried the sad news for the entire town to see: Ernie Banks. “Mr. Cub.” 1931-2015. “Words cannot express how important Ernie Banks will always be to the Chicago Cubs, the city of Chicago and Major League Baseball. He was one of the greatest players of all time,” Cubs chairman Tom Ricketts said in a statement. “He was a SUPER LOSERS? Patriots looking to snap skid after falling in last 2 Super Bowls PHOENIX (AP) — When the conversation turns to Super Bowl losers, the Bills and Vikings immediately come up. Both are 0-4, Buffalo managing the feat in consecutive seasons. The Broncos were in that sinking ship until John Elway completed his Hall of Fame career with two championships. The Patriots? They own a share of the short-term success mark in Super Bowls: three in a four-year span. They’ve been back twice since their previous championship victory and failed to add to their collection. Should they lose to Seattle next Sunday, they will become three-time losers, too. Those with short memories could begin wondering where that winning touch went? Then again, a win at University of Phoenix Stadium will tie Tom Brady with the likes of two more Hall of Famers, Joe Montana and Terry Bradshaw, for Super victories. It would lift Bill Belichick onto the same level as Chuck Noll, the only coaches with four Super Bowl rings. But the other side of the ledger can’t be ignored: Despite their amazing run of success in their division — the admittedly mediocre AFC East — the Patriots have gone a full decade between titles. “I would say the excitement is high, but it’s also more focused,” says receiver Julian Edelman, who was on the squad that lost to the Giants three years ago. “You have guys that have been to this game, guys that haven’t been to this game. You have guys that won the game; you have guys that haven’t won the game when they’ve been there. Everyone is kind of just focused and trying to get ready to prepare for this team. We’re playing the champs.” They used to be the champs, but since beating Philadelphia in Jacksonville for the 2004 NFL crown, the Patriots have seen the Giants grab the Lombardi Trophy twice against them; seen Pittsburgh also win it two times; seen Baltimore, Green Bay, Indianapolis, New Orleans, and Seattle conclude their seasons with a championship. What has happened for New England, other than dozens of wins except for one in the big game? Many factors have contributed to the streak the Patriots can end next weekend: • Slippage on defense. Yes, Belichick earned his stripes as a defensive mastermind, but ever since Brady matured into a dominant passer, New England has been an offensive team. That’s been important to remain a contender as the NFL has evolved into a high-scoring league. But in the biggest matchups, often against other potent attacks, the Patriots’ defense has been lacking. They haven’t had a true stud pass rusher or a star defensive back (until signing Darrelle Revis this season), and they’ve also had some unfortunate injuries, particularly to linebacker Jerod Mayo.

Evelyn Akhator scored 23 points for the Lady Indians, who improved to 21-1 overall and 5-1 in the Panhandle Conference. Sue Key also had 15 points and Rosemarie Julien 10 for Chipola. Chelsey Gibson was the only player in double figures for Gulf Coast with 15 points on 7-of-16 shooting. Tianah Alvarado added nine points and Kristina King had eight points and 16 rebounds. The Lady Commodores, who fell to 14-6 overall and 1-4 in the Panhandle Conference, came in hoping to make up ground on Tallahassee for third place in the league standings. However, the loss combined with the Lady Eagles narrowly escaping with a 73-71 win over Pensacola thanks to a last-second shot from Eboni Watts, means Gulf Coast is now two games back of third place in the loss column. TCC is now 4-2 and can all but knock GC out of the postseason race with a win Wednesday. MEN Gulf Coast 70, Chipola 53 The Gulf Coast men came away with a huge road win over the Indians to improve to 15-7 overall and 2-3 in the Panhandle Conference. Davaris McGowens scored 23 points to lead the Commodores, with Quavius Copeland adding 18. Dejuan Marrero led Chipola with 12, followed by Greg King with 11 and Ty Baker with nine. Chipola jumped out to a 10-2 lead, but the Commodores stormed back with a 24-2 run capped by a four-point play from DeMario Beck when he was fouled on a 3 to put GC up 26-12. The Gulf Coast lead was 32-21 at halftime, but Chipola got within 41-35 with 14 minutes remaining. But the Commodores answered with an 11-3 run to push the lead back up to 14 and the Indians never got it back to single digits again. Gulf Coast coach Jay Powell said the difference in the game was the aggressiveness his team played with offensively after the slow start. “We settled a little bit for some jump shots that we didn’t need to in the first (5:30) of the game, but after that we attacked the basket a lot and finished,” he said. “Our offense really started moving the ball well and having better spacing and we were able to score some buckets and really bear down on the defensive end better for the next 35 minutes.” The Commodores are now in sole possession of third place in the league standings. Gulf Coast will face two crucial conference home games this week when it hosts TCC on Wednesday and Pensacola on Saturday. GC women fall; men top Chipola

M c CANN from page C1 • Unbalanced offense. Belichick has been will ing to make do with incon sistent running backs or retreads, and he also has soured on some of them, especially if they can’t hold onto the football. That disorder in the backfield has put more pressure on Brady and the passing game. Fortunately for New England, Brady is an alltime great. But the chang ing cast behind him can be disruptive. Of course, since that most recent Super Bowl win, he’s had the likes of Randy Moss, Wes Welker, Rob Gronkowski and Edel man to throw to. Any QB would like that group. Yet opponents have found in the playoffs that they rarely will be beaten by the Patriots’ run game, so they have loaded up on the pass rush, on cover age, and on making Brady uncomfortable. •No fear. The opposition, espe cially when the Patriots were winning their past two titles, often reacted to what New England was doing instead of emphasiz ing their own strengths. That changed altogether in the 2008 Super Bowl, when the Giants unleashed mon strous pressure on Brady, didn’t make mistakes on either side of the ball, and shattered the Patriots’ chase of perfection. Pretty much the same thing has occurred in every postseason since, includ ing after the 2011 schedule when the Giants beat them again for the prize. Think of how Baltimore and the Jets strutted their stuff in postseason matchups at Gillette Stadium. • Coaching. Say what? Belichick holds the record for post season victories with 21, surpassing Tom Landry last week. But twice he was outmaneuvered in Super Bowls by Tom Coughlin and his defensive coordina tors. And two other times, John Harbaugh made many more correct moves in a playoff matchup. It would be foolish to think that Belichick no lon ger can handle the sharp est spotlight — which he ignores anyway. So it will be one of the most intrigu ing story lines of this Super Bowl to see how the chess match goes against Pete Carroll, perhaps the finest coach Belichick will have faced at this juncture. It would also be illadvised to play up the recent postseason short comings and ignore the earlier successes. Still, should they lose, lots of peo ple could wind up judging the Patriots more on what has happened in the past decade than what occurred in those glorious early sea sons of Brady/Belichick. pioneer in the major leagues. And more importantly, he was the warmest and most sincere person I’ve ever known.” “Approachable, ever optimistic and kind hearted, Ernie Banks is and always will be Mr. Cub. My family and I grieve the loss of such a great and good-hearted man, but we look forward to celebrating Ernie’s life in the days ahead.” In a statement Saturday, President Barack Obama and first lady Michelle Obama expressed their condolences “to the family of Ernie Banks, and to every Chicagoan and baseball fan who loved him.” The president said Banks became known as much for his optimism and love of the game as his home runs and back-to-back National League MVPs. “As a Hall-of-Famer, Ernie was an incred ible ambassador for baseball, and for the city of Chicago,” President Obama said. “He was beloved by baseball fans everywhere, includ ing Michelle, who, when she was a girl, used to sit with her dad and watch him play on TV. And in 2013, it was my honor to present Ernie with the Presidential Medal of Freedom. “Somewhere, the sun is shining, the air is fresh, his team’s behind him, and Mr. Class — “Mr. Cub” — is ready to play two.” Though he was an 11-time All-Star from 1953-71, Banks never reached the postsea son. The Cubs, who haven’t won the World Series since 1908, finished below .500 in all but six of his seasons and remain without a pennant since 1945. Still, he was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 1977, the first year he was eligible, and was selected to baseball’s All-Century team in 1999. “After hitting his 500th home run, Ernie summed up his feelings by saying: ‘The riches of the game are in the thrills, not the money.’” Hall of Fame president Jeff Idelson said in a statement. “That was the essence of Ernie Banks. There was no one who adored the Cubs and the city of Chicago more than Ernie.” Banks’ infectious smile and non-stop good humor despite his team’s dismal record endeared him to Chicago fans, who voted him the best player in franchise his tory. One famous admirer, actor Bill Murray, named his son Homer Banks Murray. In 2013, Banks was presented with the Presidential Medal of Freedom — by Obama, a noted White Sox fan,. The award is one of the nation’s highest civilian honors. “Ernie Banks was more than a baseball player. He was one of Chicago’s greatest ambassadors. He loved this city as much as he loved — and lived for — the game of baseball,” Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel said. “This year, during every Cubs game, you can bet that No. 14 will be watching over his team. And if we’re lucky, it’ll be a beauti ful day for not just one ballgame, but two.” Banks’ No. 14 was the first number retired by the Cubs, and it hangs on a flag from the left-field foul pole at the old ballpark. “I’d like to get to the last game of the World Series at Wrigley Field and hit three homers,” he once said. “That was what I always wanted to do.” But even without an opportunity to play on the October stage, Banks left an indel ible mark that still resonates with fans and athletes from all sports. “Ernie Banks... We are going to all miss you. #Legend,” quarterback Russell Wilson tweeted as he and the Seattle Seahawks were getting ready to defend their Super Bowl title. Banks was playing for the Kansas City Monarchs of the Negro Leagues when the Cubs discovered him in 1953, and purchased his contract for $10,000. He made his major league debut at shortstop on Sept. 17 that year, and three days later hit his first home run. Tall and thin, Banks didn’t look like a typical power hitter. He looked even less so as he stood at the plate, holding his bat high and wiggling it as he waited for pitches. But he had strong wrists and a smooth, quick stroke, and he made hitting balls out of the park look effortless. When he switched to a lighter bat before the 1955 season, his power quickly became apparent. He hit 44 homers that season, including three against the Pittsburgh Pirates on Aug. 4. His five grand slams that year established a major league record that stood for more than 30 years before Don Mattingly hit six in 1987. Banks’ best season came in 1958, when he hit .313 with 47 homers and 129 RBIs. Though the Cubs went 72-82 and finished sixth in the National League, Banks edged Willie Mays and Hank Aaron for his first MVP award. He was the first player from a losing team to win the NL MVP. Banks won the MVP again in 1959, becoming the first NL player to win it in consecutive years, even though the Cubs had another dismal year. Banks batted .304 with 45 homers and a league-leading 143 RBIs. PATRIOTS from page C1 BANKS from page C1 NEW YORK (AP) — Bud Selig began his 8,173rd and final day in charge of baseball by waking up in a Manhattan hotel, having breakfast and working out. After nearly 22 1/2 years that began with unprec edented labor unrest, unfolded with rapid inno vation and ended with unparalleled prosperity, he predicted a future filled with more transformation, perhaps with expansion to other countries. “My dream is for this sport to really have an international flavor,” he said Saturday during a halfhour interview with The Associated Press. “Does it need teams in other coun tries? ... If one uses a lot of vision it could.” Selig headed the group that forced Commissioner Fay Vincent’s resignation in September 1992. Owner of the Milwaukee Brew ers since 1970, he was put in charge as chairman of the executive council and finally elected commis sioner in July 1998 after years of saying he would never take the job. His reign saw expanded playoffs and wild-card teams, interleague play, video review to aid umpires, expansion to Arizona and Tampa Bay, the formation of baseball’s Internet and broadcast companies and the start of drug testing — too late for some critics. The only person who headed base ball longer was Kenesaw Mountain Landis, the first commissioner from 1920-44. “Bud will go down in history as the No. 1 com missioner that has served baseball, and without question,” said Peter Ueberroth, baseball’s com missioner from 1984-89. For Ueberroth, Selig’s time heading baseball can be compared only with “what Pete Rozelle has done in football and David Stern has done in basketball.” Selig’s final task was to accept a long and merito rious service award from the New York chapter of the Baseball Writers’ Association of America at a black-tie dinner Satur day night. Now 80, Selig becomes commissioner emeritus Sunday when Rob Manfred, his top dep uty, takes over as the 10th commissioner. “It’s been quite a jour ney, and the journey I think has changed me in a lot of ways,” Selig said. “I wish I knew in 1992 what I knew today.” Revenue has risen from about $1.7 billion in to just under $9 billion last year. Attendance, which averaged 26,978 in 1992, has been above 30,000 in 10 straight seasons, peak ing at 32,785 in 2007 before the Great Recession. With the start of rev enue sharing and a luxury tax that has slowed spend ing by large-market teams, every club except Toronto has made playoffs this century. Selig emphasized con sensus over confrontation. “All these 30-0 votes that everybody is now talking about were important to me because I learned over the years that unity was so important,” he said. “We had no unity in the ’70s and the ’80s and early ’90s. It was very fractured, and that was destructive.” And that infighting led to stasis. “The sport had been not active, really had spent two decades stuck in neutral,” he said. “It was harmful because other forms of entertainment and sports were gaining in great popularity.” To many, he seemed like a rumpled uncle or grandfather. But owners listened to him because he was one of their own.CH ICA G O CU BS HA LL O F FAM E S LUGGE R ERNI E B ANKS Selig says MLB could expand internationally


SPORT S Sunday, January 25, 2015 | The News Herald | Page C3 The Russians are coming! The Russians are coming! Well, not exactly. If you could hear from some of my dive buddies the situation in the Gulf is far worse. The great whites are coming; or should I say have been coming since time out of mind. A friend called earlier on this week saying he was giving up diving. He said a boat out of Panama City had been viciously attacked by a great white shark. After looking at the videos I would hope if my boat were attacked it would come out no worse than the one I saw. This guy has been diving for most of his life, and has been telling me how bold bull sharks have become the past few years. He said on some wrecks there are permanent residents, mostly bull sharks that have become accustomed to divers shooting fish which they then try to take away. When the sharks hear the spear gun go off it is like ringing a dinner bell according to him. Another diver that also heard about the great white called asking if I would like to buy some dive gear since he would not be using his any more. I’m sure both divers will be back in the water when it warms up. Great whites got a bad name when the movie “Jaws” came out some years back. Until then, the only time anyone thought about this species of shark was in a documentary about whaling off South Africa and all the sharks that activity attracted. Usually the sharks the dead whales attracted were what they called “whalers” because these were the sharks that showed up to feast on the dead whale carcasses. These would have been called bull sharks if that activity went on in this area. In 1967, while working deck on a head boat with A.R. Holly, we saw a great white offshore from the offshore tower. It was a big bully and we had to change direction to keep from running it over. That was a long time ago and I’ve not seen or heard of a great white since then, not counting the one last week. If you remember back in the spring a company called “Ocearch” was capturing and tagging of different varieties of sharks including great whites in which it documented two in the Gulf and one just offshore of Mexico Beach. Neither of these sharks caused any harm, one of them being a female of more than 15 feet in length. The shark last week was a baby by comparison. I gave up diving some years ago after many years (50 to be exact) of crawling around on the bottom looking for lobsters and large fish to shoot. Back then we shot lobsters since we were ignorant of the rules and there was no marine patrol to enforce the law. Heck, we didn’t even know there was such a thing as a lobster season. As a matter of fact, not many people even knew we had spiny lobsters here which are not true lobsters anyway. I don’t think anyone should get out in front of their house this weekend and have a yard sale and get rid of their diving equipment. It’s as safe tomorrow to go diving as it was last week. I have coyotes in my backyard, but I’m not going to stay in the house because of them. If you get to see a great white consider yourself lucky. That is, unless you are 90 feet from the surface.

Outdoor Life Scott Lindsey Outdoor Writer captscottlindsey ANNOUNCEMENTS Outdoors: A great deal of over-reaction MELBOURNE, Australia (AP) — Serena Williams loves having Venus back to keep her company in the sec ond week of a Grand Slam, and credits her older sister with giving her the motivation to reach the fourth round of the Australian Open. The Williams siblings, with 25 Grand Slam titles between them, will have a couple of Madisons joining them, too. Madison Keys had a 6-4, 7-5 upset win over two-time Wimbledon cham pion Petra Kvitova on Saturday night, and Madison Brengle beat Coco Vandeweghe 6-3, 6-2 in an all-U.S. third-round match. The two Madisons will meet in the round of 16, meaning one of them will become a first-time Grand Slam quarterfinalist. The last time four or more Ameri can women reached the second week in Australia was in 2003, when Keys’ coach Lindsay Davenport was playing and Serena beat Venus in one of their Williams-sister finals. That can’t hap pen this time, because they’re in the same half of the draw. Serena Williams, who is aiming for her sixth Australian and 19th Grand Slam title, has long been the standard bearer and has been asked all too often what has happened to the depth of U.S. women’s tennis. “I think American women’s tennis has come so far. We have so many options now, which is so great because for years I had to answer the question: ‘I don’t know, I don’t know,’” the No. 1-ranked Williams said after her 4-6, 6-2, 6-0 win over No. 26-ranked Elina Svitolina. “Just so many American players that are playing really, really well. So much to look forward to.” None more, in her mind, than Venus’ return to the fourth round at a major for the first time since Wimble don in 2011. When Serena walked onto Rod Laver Arena on Saturday, Venus was down a set and a break on nearby Margaret Court Arena. Venus, who was diagnosed with an auto-immune condition called Sjogren’s syndrome in 2011 and has struggled at the high est level ever since, rallied for a 4-6, 7-6 (3), 6-1 win over Camila Giorgi. And that was powerful inspiration. “I thought, ‘Wow, she’s been through so much with her illness, with everything that she’s had to do. Gosh, if she can do it, I’m perfectly healthy, I’m fine. I should be able to do it, too,’” Serena Williams said. On the men’s side, top-ranked Novak Djokovic and defending cham pion Stan Wawrinka advanced with straight-set wins, while U.S. Open finalist Kei Nishikori and Wimbledon semifinalist Milos Raonic continued their quests for a first major title. Four-time Australian Open winner Djokovic beat Fernando Verdasco 7-6 (8), 6-3, 6-4 in the first night match on Rod Laver, then asked the crowd of 15,000 to help him sing Happy Birth day to his mother, Dijana. COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — After leading Ohio State to a national championship, Joey Bosa had one ques tion for the 45,000 fans who crowded into Ohio Stadium in late January. “How are you guys out here right now? It’s freez ing,” he said from a make shift stage erected on the south end of the field. Buckeyes fans were on their feet as coach Urban Meyer and the team emerged from the southeast tunnel obscured by fog and flanked by flames. Onstage, local politicians delivered speeches and players danced and joked with each other while chants of “O-H! I-O!” rang out throughout the sta dium and several highlight videos from the Buckeyes’ 14-1 season played on the scoreboard. As he took the podium to address the crowd, coach Urban Meyer said he initially wanted to move the event indoors to Value City Area until athletic director Gene Smith challenged him. “Gene Smith says, ‘You don’t realize, these Buckeye fans are nuts,’” Meyer said. “You are nuts, and from the bottom of our heart thank you for being here.” The university awarded 2,500 free passes allowing fans to watch from the field. More than an hour before the event got underway, they lined a barrier on the 45-yard line as children did somer saults and threw footballs in the north end zone and Bru tus Buckeye high-fived those at the front. Associated Press regional vice-president Eva Parziale presented the AP national championship trophy to Meyer, who also accepted championship trophies from the College Football Playoff and the American Football Coaches Association. Meyer brought out a hand ful of players including quar terbacks Braxton Miller, J.T. Barrett and Cardale Jones, whom he introduced as “the magnificent three.” Miller, whose status for next season is unknown, told fans, “We’ve got another year to do it, so let’s go Bucks.” AP Serena Williams eyes a shot from Elina Svitolina during their third-round match. Williams sisters advance Buckeyes celebrate CFP title AP Nebraska running back Ameer Abdullah, top, runs the ball in the rst half during the Senior Bowl on Saturday in Mobile, Ala. MOBILE, Ala. (AP) — Nebraska’s Ameer Abdullah rushed for 73 yards and added 40 receiving while leading the North to a 34-13 victory over the South on Saturday in the Senior Bowl. The Cornhuskers’ No. 2 career rusher won MVP honors, and the running backs and defenses came up with the some of the biggest plays in a game that show cases senior NFL prospects. Abdullah, an Alabama native, made the most of his 11 touches. Minnesota running back David Cobb gained 69 yards on 11 carries, including a 4-yard touch down late in the third quarter. The top passers were Baylor’s Bryce Petty of the North and Colorado State’s Gar rett Grayson on the South. Petty was 9 of 13 for 123 yards with an interception. Grayson completed 8 of 15 passes for 118 yards. Utah’s Nate Orchard, playing outside linebacker, was chosen as the North’s most outstanding player. The Ted Hen dricks Award winner as the nation’s top defensive end had 1 1/2 tackles for loss. Florida State guard Tre’ Jackson received the honor for the South. Two big defensive plays gave the North a double-digit lead going into the fourth quarter. Texas cornerback Quandre Diggs picked off a pass from Southeastern Lou isiana’s Bryan Bennett, Marcus Mariota’s one-time backup at Oregon, and raced 41 yards. Two plays later, Cobb scored for a 20-10 advantage. Miami-Ohio’s Quinten Rollins then intercepted another Bennett pass on the next drive. Division II Concordia-Saint Paul’s Tom Obarski missed a field goal on the final play of the third quarter after hitting a 49-yarder earlier. The game was played with two-minute warnings in each quarter, with a kickoff opening all four. The rule gave the North the ball to start the fourth, and Yale’s Tyler Varga ran for a 13-yard touchdown to put the game away. Varga added a 7-yard scor ing run. Auburn’s Cameron Artis-Payne and Northern Iowa’s David Johnson tied for the South rushing lead with 43 yards. Artis-Payne also had 35 yards on three catches. Miami cornerback Ladarius Gunter made a big defensive play to end the first half, one play after his pass interference penalty kept the North’s drive alive. He stopped Abdullah near the goal line on a catch from Oregon State’s Sean Mannion and the clock ran out. Mannion had ended his first drive with a 10-yard touchdown pass to Notre Dame tight end Ben Koyack. He also fumbled twice. Abdullah leads North past South in Senior Bowl

White finishes fourth at Winter X Games ASPEN, Colo. — Danny Davis made it look real easy. Shaun White — he made it look real hard. That summed up the gulf between first and fourth place on the halfpipe at the Winter X Games on Thursday night. Davis won his second straight X Games gold medal by laying down a leg-tweaking, fun-loving snowboarding show for the purists. White struggled all night in his first contest since last year’s Olympics, and got the same, fourth-place result he ended up with in Sochi. Alabama O.C. Kiffin returning TUSCALOOSA, Ala. — Lane Kiffin says he is coming back to Alabama for a second season as offensive coordinator. Kiffin reportedly had been a candidate to become offensive coordinator for the San Francisco 49ers, but he and coach Nick Saban issued statements Saturday announcing his return.

Sunday, January 25, 2015 | The News Herald | Page C5 PRO BOWL Team Irvin (featuring Tony Romo, Odell Beckham and Clay Matthews) vs. Team Carter (featuring Andrew Luck, J.J. Watt, and Antonio Brown) 7 p.m. tonight, ESPN. PHOENIX (AP) — An his toric Super Bowl is before us. Next Sunday, Seattle goes for a second straight title, seeking to be the first team to repeat since the Patriots a decade ago. A victory, par ticularly a convincing one, would stamp the Seahawks as one of the great teams of the Super Bowl era. Meanwhile, New England’s coach and quarterback chase a record-tying fourth Super Bowl ring. Yet, as has been the custom this season, major distractions have taken focus away from the field. As much as Tom Brady, Bill Belichick, Pete Carroll and Rich ard Sherman might want the spotlight to shine only on the game itself — and the potential achieve ments at hand — much of the buildup to the kickoff will be about anything but. From the New England underinflated balls saga to injuries for AllPro defensive backs Sherman and Earl Thomas to Marshawn Lynch being fined yet again for his code of silence with the media, the 49th Super Bowl has taken on a circus atmosphere. Which seems fitting given all that has gone wrong for the NFL off the field — even as pro football remains as popular as ever. Just finding any com ments about the matchup of the dynamic defense from Seattle and the potent offense from New England has been a chore. Every thing else, it seems, has been in play. Indeed, here’s how Seahawks All-Pro corner back Sherman, recalling last year, describes the upcom ing week: “To us, it was just another week in the season, obviously. You’re with these guys 180 or 190 of the 365 days, so you get to spend a special week with them. You get to know their families a little better because it’s not just them there, but it’s their families, their sons and daughters.” Sherman insisted the left elbow he hurt in the NFC title game will be no factor. “If I had to slap my brother, I’d be able to do it,” he said jokingly. Not much light-hearted stuff coming from New England. Not much football talk, either. Belichick, who can equal Chuck Noll’s four Super Bowl rings as a head coach, is grilled about the air pres sure in a football, not about the pass pressure Seattle can bring on Brady. Brady, in turn, gets crossexamined about the weight of the footballs, not about the weight of trying to reach Joe Montana/Terry Bradshaw territory with a fourth Super Bowl triumph. “Obviously I’d much rather be up here talking about the Seahawks and pre paring for the Super Bowl, which we’ve been trying to do for the last few days,” he said. As for Lynch, while it’s certain the Patriots are scheming how to slow down Beast Mode, the league is trying to figure out what to do with him on media day and beyond. Lynch was fined $20,000 Thursday for an obscene gesture in the NFC championship win over Green Bay. Both the Seahawks and Lynch have decisions to make in the offseason. Whether it’s time for Lynch to move on or if he’ll play out the final year of his contract with Seattle. Or Lynch could follow through on rumors that have followed him for nearly a year and decide to walk away from football. Some folks in the NFL offices must be wondering what else could happen to shift the focus from Patriots-Seahawks. What the football-watch ing world hopefully prefers is to get back to the machi nations on the 100-yard gridiron. Such as the key show down between All-Pro tight end Rob Gronkowski and Seahawks safety Kam Chancellor, perhaps the only defender who can somewhat match Gronk’s power and speed. Such as how Seattle avoids the pitfalls that plagued it for much of the NFC title game, when it fell behind 16-0. And how high-priced Patriots cornerback Dar relle Revis performs in his first Super Bowl after seven seasons of falling short (on the field if not at the bank). There’s also what some have dubbed “Pete’s Revenge,” recalling how Carroll was canned by the Patriots after the 1999 season and replaced by Belichick. Carroll went on to phenomenal success at Southern California even as his successor was turning New England into a power. He’s displayed no animosity toward the Patriots organi zation — anything otherwise would have fit in with the theme of the 2014 season and the past few weeks, of course. “It was a real challenge,” said Carroll, who went 2823 in three seasons with the Patriots. “It’s a great place to be in sports: a great town, a great following, much like it is here (in Seattle). Just tremendous support and all, really heartfelt. “That was the old days and all of the old facilities; it wasn’t quite as nice as it now, I am sure. Still, the whole setup was really excit ing to be around, they had such history. It didn’t work out. We did some good stuff while we were there, but it didn’t work out and time to move on.” Yep, maybe it’s time to move on from all the tangen tial stuff and concentrate on what the Super Bowl is sup posed to represent: football. NFL At the Pro Bowl, here’s the kicker... SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (AP) — Kickers Adam Vinatieri and Cody Parkey are going to have to narrow their focus and kick a little harder to convert an extra point in tonight’s Pro Bowl. The NFL will nar row the goal posts from the current 18.6-feet to 14 feet. In addition, the kick will be moved back to the 15-yard line, making it about a 33-yard field goal. Vinatieri, at 42 the old est Pro Bowl member, doesn’t like the idea. “Other people might enjoy that,” he said. “For me, I’m a traditionalist. Don’t change it unless it needs to be changed. The league has never been more successful. The fan base has never been greater. But the deciding pow ers are way above me.” The NFL is experimenting with making the PAT more dif ficult because they are virtually automatic now. Over the past five seasons, Indianapolis’ Vinatieri hasn’t missed one in five years, going 196 for 196. Parkey, a rookie for Philadelphia, made all 54 of his attempts. “I don’t prefer it but it is what it is,” Parkey said after the team practiced at Scottsdale Commu nity College on Friday. “It’s going to be way harder. It’s the kind of situation where there are so many good kickers in the league that I guess made it look easy. They’ve got to find other ways to make it harder. No matter what it is, we’ll accept the challenge.” For field goals, the posts will expand to their normal width. Goodwill players As football practices go, the workouts for Team Irvin and Team Carter are about as basic, low key and uninspired as you’ll ever see. As exhibitions of goodwill, they have made a lot of friends. When the team practiced at Luke Air Force Base on Thursday, military personnel and their fami lies were allowed to watch, and hundreds showed up. After the practice, the players stayed for a long while signing auto graphs and posing for pictures. On Friday, the practice shifted to Scottsdale Community Col lege, where children from the Make-A-Wish Foundation and Ron ald McDonald House were allowed on the field after the workouts to get autographs, while the players stooped down to the kids’ level to pose for photos. “The platform we have as ath letes in this game,” Indianapolis quarterback Andrew Luck said, “if we can make a positive influence on someone, it’s great. It’s very rewarding.” Broncos praise Fox Bronco players Ryan Clady and Aqib Talib said they didn’t see coach John Fox leaving after their season ended. “It was definitely a shock,” Clady said. “But (John) Elway wanted to bring in his own guy. I’m happy for the coach to find a job so quickly.” A SANDSTORM OF STORY LINES BETWEEN DEFLATE-GATE, A DEFENDING CHAMPION, BRADY AND BELICHICK VYING FOR RING NO. 4, ‘PETE’S REVENGE’, THE 2012 BRADY-SHERMAN INCIDENT AND THE POSSIBLE END OF BEAST MODE, THIS SUPER BOWL IN ARIZONA HAS WHIPPED UP... A DAM V INATIERI Colts kicker Belichick lectures on science of footballs FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) — Saying his team “followed the rules to the letter,” New Eng land Patriots coach Bill Belichick explained how his team prepares its footballs on game day and defended his players from chatter that they made it to the Super Bowl by cheating. In an unscheduled availability on Saturday afternoon, eight days before the Patriots will play the Seattle Seahawks for the NFL title, Belich ick described an internal study into how the foot balls are prepared to quarterback Tom Brady’s liking. Most of the steps are designed to make them tackier for a better grip, he said, but the pro cess could also affect the pressure inside the ball. “There have been questions raised, and I believe now, 100 percent, that I have personally and we have as an organiza tion have absolutely fol lowed every rule to the letter,” Belichick said. “At no time was there any intent to compromise the integrity of the game.” The Patriots reached the Super Bowl for the sixth time in Belichick’s tenure when they beat the Colts 45-7 in the AFC championship on Sunday. But later that night, Indianapolis TV station WTHR reported that some of the game balls provided by the Patriots for the use of their offense weren’t sufficiently inflated. The NFL has con firmed that it is investi gating and the Patriots vowed to cooperate. Belichick said earlier in the week that he didn’t know how the game balls were prepared, defer ring to Brady; Brady also denied doing anything improper. Jets hire former LB Johnson as assistant coach FLORHAM PARK, N.J. — The New York Jets have hired former line backer Pepper Johnson as their defensive line coach. Johnson worked in the same role last season with Buffalo, but was replaced by Karl Dunbar who fol lowed coach Rex Ryan from the Jets to the Bills.

Page C6 | The News Herald | Sunday, January 25, 2015 COLLEGE BASKETBALL ACC: Tar Heels edge ’Noles despite Rathan-Mayes’ 35 CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) — Brice Johnson had 18 points and 14 rebounds to help No. 15 North Carolina beat Florida State 78-74 on Saturday. Marcus Paige scored 19 points to lead the Tar Heels (16-4, 6-1 Atlantic Coast Conference), who won their fifth straight league game. The Tar Heels led nearly all day, though they struggled to put the game away and ended up doing enough to hang on down the stretch against freshman Xavier Rathan-Mayes and the Seminoles. Rathan-Mayes scored a season-high 35 points and hit five 3-pointers to lead the Seminoles (10-10, 2-5), including three in the final 35 seconds to keep FSU in it all the way to the horn. His last 3 brought the Seminoles to within 75-72 with about 17 seconds left, but FSU could get no closer. Freshman Justin Jackson added 14 points in his latest solid performance as UNC won for the 10th time in 11 games. Johnson finished 7-for-9 from the field to continue his hot shooting from Wednesday’s win at Wake Forest and also had a couple of tough plays in the paint that coach Roy Williams has been pushing to see. Paige, leading an injurydepleted backcourt, went 6-for-13 from the field and also hit two free throws with 16.1 seconds left to help keep the Tar Heels in control after Rathan-Mayes’ final 3. Miami 66, Syracuse 62 SYRACUSE, N.Y. — Tonye Jekiri had 13 points and 15 rebounds, Angel Rodriguez added 12 points and eight assists, and Miami held off Syracuse.

Syracuse moved within 60-59 on a lefty shot along the baseline by Rakeem Christmas with 52.6 seconds left. After Manu Lecomte sank a long 3 from the top of the key with 19.9 seconds to go, Trevor Cooney answered with one of his own at 12.5 seconds to keep the Orange within a point. Rodriguez then sank two free throws and the Hurricanes survived after Cooney missed a 3-point attempt with 4.4 seconds left. Clemson 59, Wake Forest 57 CLEMSON, S.C. — Josh Smith’s offensive rebound and layup with 0.5 seconds left gave Clemson a win over Wake Forest. The Tigers (11-8, 3-4 Atlantic Coast Con ference) led for exactly 24 seconds, but got the final possession of the game when Codi MillerMcIntyre turned it over with the score tied at 57 with 25 seconds to go. Rod Hall missed a tough layup, but Smith got the rebound and made a quick banking shot to win, making up for his 2-of-6 shoot ing from the foul line. Miller-McIntyre also missed two short shots with the game tied at 56 with about a minute to go. Wake Forest (9-11, 1-6) didn’t make a basket in the final five minutes of the game. The Demon Deacons have now lost 37 of their last 39 ACC road games. AP Florida State freshman Xavier Rathan-Mayes, shoots over North Carolina’s Marcus Paige. 19 up, 19 down COLUMBIA, S.C.

Kentucky’s lead never fell below double digits after that. The Wildcats were 19-0 in 2010, Calipari’s first season in Kentucky when he had NBA standouts John Wall and DeMarcus Cousins. That run ended in this building with South Carolina’s 68-62 stunner. The sold-out crowd was just as loud after Sindarius Thornwell’s 3-pointer put the Gamecocks out front. Tyler Ulis started the comeback for Kentucky with a steal and basket before Booker made two fouls shots and a jam and the Wildcats were on their way. Georgia 72, Mississippi State 66 STARKVILLE, Miss .— J.J.

LSU 79, Vanderbilt 75 NASHVILLE, Tenn . — Tim Quarterman scored six of his 12 points in overtime, helping LSU rally and beat Vanderbilt for the Tigers’ second straight win.

This music not only has a message but can make an eternal difference in the lives of those who attend.” The 17th annual Jubilee Weekend from the Emerald Coast Southern Gospel Music Association will return to Hiland Park Baptist Church Thursday through Saturday, Jan. 29-31. “It brings people from other states who come in to be part of the event. It is kind of a concert and worship service in one. Come here for a true encounter with God,” said Adam Burnett, minister of music at Hiland Park Baptist Church. The church completed construction of its new 1,600 seat worship center “with more stadiumtype seating” in September 2013. “It’s been great having it in the new worship center,” Burnett added. “One, we can get so many more in here but we also can get a more intimate feel. It allows for artists to really connect to everyone.” Gospel artists from all over the Southeast, from Birmingham to Virginia and North Carolina, Georgia and Alabama will be singing praises. “There are people who will come to an event like this that won’t go to church,” Gann said. “The gospel will not only be sung but also spoken.” Dr. Steven Kyle, pastor of Hiland Park Baptist Church, will do “more of a devotion” each night. Michael English performs Thursday night along with Page Trio, Sacred Harmony, Matthew Cutter and Karen Shelley. “Michael English is top of his game in terms of popularity and sound. To me, he borders between contemporary and Southern Gospel. Gold City Quartet is a multi-award winning world class quartet,” Gann said. “We have one national each night. Regional artists perform about 25 minutes a piece. The program moves pretty rapidly, so if you don’t like something, wait a few minutes and there will be someone else.” The Dixie Echoes, whose Southern Gospel roots go back to the ’60s, will headline Friday night, along with the music of Freedom Hill, Lighthouse, Mari Harper, Drummonds, Fresh Anointing and Jennifer Strickland. Gold City Quartet headlines Saturday after the Beacon Awards at 5 p.m. “Emerald Coast Association artists are nominated and voted on. We have been doing it about 15 years,” Gann said. “On Saturday every ticket includes seeing the winners given awards — our version of the Grammys.” Fans can vote online till midnight Sunday, Jan. 25, at (click on “vote”). The Gann Family and Undivided, another popular local group with national recognition, are both performing Saturday, as well as Shireys, Ron French and Jubilee Choir. “My musical experience started with the Gann Brothers in 1980,” said Gann, who started the group with his brother, Phil. Gann went on to start a family group in 2008 with his wife, Debbie, their son, Cory, daughter, Amy, and her husband, Matt Henderson. Cory was a drummer for the Gann Brothers before they went on as a family. “We’ve made about six full length CDs since then, and we travel and sing as a family all over the Southeast,” Gann said. The Gann Family’s most recent album, “Child of the King,” was recorded at their studio, Studio 812, in Lynn Haven. The album is dedicated to the memory of Madison Grace Riley, a “Child who is with The King.” Gann’s grandson, Mason, now 6, sings near the end of the title track. But whether he will join the family on stage is taken on “a night by night basis,” Gann admitted. Undivided has been “sharing the Good News of Jesus Christ through music” since 1987. Their song “Walking With Jesus” was voted No. 1, and “I Trust You Lord” was voted No. 3 song of the year in 2014 in the Southern Gospel Times Top 40 chart. On Jan. 4, the group — Cindy Scott, Brenda Paris and Dan Davis — released their third National Single, “For Another Day.” jubilee weekend Emerald Coast 17TH ANNUAL EMERALD COAST JUBILEE What: The Emerald Coast Southern Gospel Music Association brings together more than 20 artists, including Michael English, the Dixie Echoes, Gold City Quartet, Gann Family and Undivided When: 6 p.m. Thursday through Saturday, Jan. 29-31; Beacon Awards at 5 p.m. Saturday Where: Hiland Park Baptist Church of Panama City, 2811 N.

I want to talk about three plants that are in bloom at this time: camellias, grape holly, and African (winter) iris. With camellias, we have both camellia japonica and camellias santa. Camellias are unusual shrubs because they bloom profusely in the shade. A characteristic uncommon to most plants, they require more light for flower production. Camellias are evergreen shrubs that are native to southeast Asia. They bloom during this time when little color is evident in the garden. Some varieties of Camellia japonica are, “Yours Truly,” “Pro Sergeant,” “Mary Alice Cox” (white), “Cotton Candy” and “Marie Black” (pink). What is so unusual about Algerian “winter” iris, ( Iris unguicularis) is the blue blooms down in the foliage. The other plant is grape holly (Mahonia dealei), which has yellow blooms at this time of the year. This plant is ideal for the shade. Howard C.

All donations are taxdeductible and can be delivered to their office only during office hours, 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday through Thursday. For more information, call 785-1721. FOOD ROOM: Our food room was severely depleted through the holidays, and we now hope to try to restock it for ongoing needs. Items needed are canned mixed vegetables, greens, baked beans/pork and beans, white potatoes (or dry instant), chicken and dumplings, chicken/turkey, hash, salmon/mackerel/ sardines, peaches, fruit cocktail, pineapple and soups. Also needed are coffee (ground or small instant jars), syrup, mac and cheese (boxes), cake mixes, corn muffin mixes, juice (two-quart) and unsweetened juice (for diabetics), sugar substitutes (Sweet-n-Low, Splenda or Equal) for our diabetic clients. CLEANING SUPPLIES/ PERSONAL HYGEINE: We have had many requests for cleaning supplies lately. The No. 1 request from our moms has been for paper towels what will absorb spills and be tough enough for cleaning. The second most requested item has been toilet paper. Paper products are very hard for our elderly and our lowincome and unemployed clients to afford. Food stamps buy needed food but they do not buy toiletries and cleaning supplies and paper products. Lately, we have also had several requests from our elderly clients for denture adhesive/paste. DIABETIC TEST STRIPS: For years now, we have been fortunate enough to have been supplied with test strips through a program by the manufacturer. That program has ended, and now we running low on diabetic test strips. The brands we need most are True Result, True Track, Bayer Contour, One Touch Ultra and Freestyle Lite. Our diabetic clients rely on us to help them with this need so that they use the proper dosage for their insulin and thus are saved trips to the emergency room for using to little or too much insulin. SMALL INK CARTRIDGES: Family Service Agency recycles the small ink cartridges you use in personal printers, so please drop them off at the agency. (Sorry, we cannot use the toner type cartridges.) CELL PHONES: Family Service Agency recycles cell phones. If you have some, please drop them by the agency don’t throw them out as they are worth money for the agency. ALUMINUM DRINK CANS & DRINK CAN TABS: We are collecting aluminum drink cans to be recycled. Please do not throw away those cans; just drop them off at our agency and we will recycle them to help pay utility bills, rent, mortgages, buy fresh fruits, meats and cheese. We also send the drink tabs to Ronald McDonald House, so parents have a place to stay while visiting a sick child in the hospital. United Way of Northwest Florida makes such a difference in so many lives and supports many organizations, such as Family Service Agency. We ask you to take the time to find out all it does in Bay and surrounding counties. When asked to make a donation, please donate. It really is for a good cause. For more information, call United Way at 785-7521. You can HELP HOWARD GRAY BOTANISTS Corner DEAR AMY: My wife and I are separating after 13 years of marriage. A few months ago she said she was unhappy. Then I learned she had formed an “emotional and spiritual connection” with a married man from church, someone I know and whose children play with our children after church every Sunday. I believe her lack of interest in working on our marital issues is tied to the fact that there is someone else already in her life, who has taken her focus away from “us.” I am torn about telling the man’s wife about this “connection.” Some people have advised me to tell her, because I would want to know if my wife was being secretive. Others have said to leave their marriage alone. My wife has told me that the other man has not told his wife; he has told her that I am suspicious of them, because I met with him to talk about his relationship with my wife, and he denied anything but friendship. Then to cover himself he made me seem like an insecure, jealous husband who has strange ideas about their “friendship.” My wife excused his behavior by suggesting that I cornered him, and what else was he going to say? Should I meet with her and tell her what I know, or leave it alone, in the belief that it will reveal itself eventually? Wronged Husband DEAR WRONGED: You are not a disinterested party to this involvement — it has a direct impact on your life and marriage, and so you should disclose it. You did the right thing by confronting the husband. It did not go well for you but, still, you did your best to approach him and tell the truth. Even if there is no hope to save your own marriage, you should still tell the truth to the other person whose marriage is affected. You should say, “I want you to know that my wife and I are separating due to the fact that she is involved with your husband. It gives me no pleasure to tell you this, but I thought you should know because your own marriage may also be at risk.” DEAR AMY: I recently broke up with my boyfriend of almost three years. After our breakup, a friend, “Bob,” asked me out. For the past two weeks, Bob and I have gone out multiple times and talked almost every day. He is very sweet and often compliments me. We haven’t talked about any potential relationship, but it seems clear that he likes me. Four days ago Bob and I went to get drinks and the movies, and his sister and her husband came along. I met them for the first time. We all had a good time and I ended the night by telling Bob to call me when he wanted to see me again, but I haven’t heard from him. Now I am confused. I don’t want to call Bob since I told him to call me, but I’m afraid he will lose interest or think that I am uninterested. What should I do? I genuinely like him and could see us having a relationship together. Do you think I’m moving too fast? Single DEAR SINGLE: If you want to see “Bob,” or have questions about where things are headed, you should call (or text) him. Thank him for the nice time you had and say you enjoyed meeting his sister. Ask him if he wants to meet for coffee and then wait to see if he responds. He might be worried that meeting his family members set the two of you on a too-fast track; hearing from you could help. You should keep things semi-casual for a while after ending such a long relationship. DEAR AMY: “Bad Choice Maker” said he wanted out of his marriage after only two weeks. I was disappointed in your answer to him. You should not encourage married people to give up so easily. You should have challenged him to stay with his wife. Happily Married DEAR MARRIED: When someone states that he “hates” his wife after only two weeks, I don’t think it’s wise to encourage him to stay.

Mostly it’s a mix. The more joy you bring, the sweeter this will be. Of course, sometimes you don’t want it so sweet. TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Use your voice for the side that you are on. In order for evil to prevail, good people need to do absolutely nada. When you see it’s not right, say something. GEMINI (May 21-June 21): The Chinese proverb suggests that the palest ink is better than the best memory. In your case, the act of writing things down will cement them in your mind even if you happen to lose the paper on which it’s written. CANCER (June 22-July 22): There’s something you’re getting paid (in some form) to do now that you would do anyway even if payment were not forthcoming. That’s where you need to put more of your time and energy. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): If you do it the same way most other people would, you’ll be replaceable in the position. They need the thing that makes you irreplaceable in the position. Lean into your originality. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Relating to people outside of your usual circle will help you hear yourself more objectively. This kind of self-consciousness can be positive. It will help you see an attitude or social habit you’d like to improve upon. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23): The reason you’ll walk away with the prize today is that you’re willing to work harder than the others. Most of that work will happen in the way of strategy and preparation. SCORPIO (Oct. 24Nov. 21): If you surround yourself with narcissists, prepare to be ignored. It’s not as negative as it sounds. Such a circumstance can afford you the opportunity you need to focus inwardly. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22Dec. 21): There won’t be a perfect moment, but if you act on the imperfect one, you will greatly improve it. Win or lose, you’ll gain the benefit of experience and help a Leo in some indirect way in the process. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): It’s usually not possible to make a big difference in the world all at once, but the small differences you make in your immediate surroundings will ripple out from those closest to you and far beyond. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20Feb. 18): As long as you are making requests, what about more love, respect, tenderness and attention? Hey, it can happen! You’ll make subtle changes in your behavior to attract a sweeter kind of treatment. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Some people have more of a talent for selfpromotion than for the talent they are supposedly promoting. Look beyond the marketing of things and into what’s being marketed. Your H O R OSCO P E : Holiday Mathis Bob Dylan says he would be a teacher if not a musician NEW YORK (AP) — Bob Dylan says if he weren’t a musician, he would be a teacher. The 73-year-old is on the cover of AARP magazine’s February/March issue. He says in an interview that “if I had to do it all over again, I’d be a schoolteacher.” He adds that he “probably” would have taught Roman history or theology. Dylan will release “Shadows In the Night” on Feb. 3. The album features songs from the 1920s to the 1960s, including standards like “Autumn Leaves,” ‘’That Lucky Old Sun” and “Stay With Me.” The songs also were recorded by Frank Sinatra. Dylan says he thinks Sinatra would “be amazed I did these songs with a five-piece band.” Dylan is giving 50,000 readers of the magazine a free copy of his album. AP F ILE P H OTO Bob Dylan performs at “Les Vieilles Charrues” Festival in Carhaix, western France.

M y son is beginning to understand just what it means to be a Cazalas, and he thinks it’s pretty funny. He’s heard me joke about it for years, after all, but I didn’t think the humorous references would turn into some kind of catch-all excuse for just about anything idiotic he – or our pets for that matter – get into. Over the past few years the phrase, “No DNA testing needed, he’s my son,” or, “Well Dylan, you’re definitely a Cazalas,” might have escaped my lips a few hundred times. Without much thought I recall it being used when: He stood on the cement wall at Disney World in front of a bush groomed to look like Goofy and struck the exact running pose Goofy held – in front of hundreds of people. We tried to get a picture of him at a school campout and he would only do it if he could act like a zombie eating a hamburger. When I asked him, “Dylan, are you really sure you can stay focused on school if we do basketball AND soccer?” Dylan: “Yes, I’ve got a plan. Santi and I are really good at math and HEY, LOOK AT THAT CAT!” Me: “What about the plan?” Dylan: “Huh?” When I told him to please pick up his bowl with the fork in it off the table and put it in the sink, only to find that he walked right past it twice. “Why didn’t you put that up like I asked?” “What?” he said. “The bowl and fork,” I reminded him. “Oh,” he said, “that’s a bowl and a spoon. You said a bowl and a fork.” “You know what I meant,” I snapped. “I didn’t,” he countered, “I’m a Cazalas, remember?” It’s now been extended to our English cocker, Buddy. Recently, readers might recall, we had an encounter with the Bay County Animal Control folks. It all went fine, they were nice and just doing their job, but I jokingly declared that Buddy had been “cleared” and we’d celebrate by taking him to the nearby dog park. Dylan didn’t want to go – he loves that taste of freedom he gets with a little time home alone – so I loaded Buddy up in our SUV and headed south. The window was two-thirds of the way up and as we slowed to turn into the park, disaster struck. I was down to about 15 or 20 mph and a flock of dove took off across the street. Buddy bolted out the back window after them, landing face-first on the road. His genetics have him convinced at all times there is a bird somewhere nearby that demands his attention, and he literally can’t seem to help it. Long story short, he suffered only the loss of a tooth despite the asphalt plunge and we went on to the dog park. When I told Dylan what happened, he said, “Well, now we know he’s a Cazalas.” So with that background, one night recently I was out and Dylan was at home and my phone was on silent and when I checked it I saw I had missed a call from him but he had left a message. It said: “Hey dad, it’s me. I’ve got a little bit of a problem, but don’t get scared, it’s not a big problem.” That was warning number one that it was probably a big problem. “The beeping in the background is the microwave if you can hear it.” God help me. “I think you’d want to hear it, talk to talk, not on message, so just call me back when you’re open. So, yeah, love you!” Click. I’d only missed the call by a couple of minutes and hit “return call.” Amazingly, the boy had told the truth. Turns out he was opening a can and cut his finger slightly. He had washed it and put a band-aid on it, but just wanted me to know. “You handled that very well,” I told him, my heart returning to a normal pace, “but how in the world did you do that?” “You know how,” he said. “No, I don’t.” “I’m a Cazalas!” he proclaimed Good or bad he knows he’s a Cazalas MIKE CAZALAS Editor Between the Cracks The productive life of Toystory the bull PANAMA CITY NEWS HERALD Viewpoints Section E Tim Thompson, Publisher Mike Cazalas, Editor S. Brady Calhoun, Editorial Page Editor 747-5075 | @sbradycalhoun SUNDAY January 25, 2015 There was sad news in the breeding world last week. Toystory, the bull that set the world record for producing offspring, died. The Wall Street Journal did a fascinating front page story on this randy beast saying “Rare is the bull with the genes and testicular fortitude to sell a million units of semen.” In the cutting edge world of cow insemination and reproduction, Toystory was a legend. He sired offspring in 50 different countries. He was the Bill Clinton of international relations. My first thought was that the hulking Holstein was shot by another angry bull, but no. He was bred for years, earning tens of millions of dollars for his owners. These days, bulls put to stud yield more than Treasury bonds in our high-tech farming business. He lived a productive life, fathering an estimated half a million offspring. I would imagine he is line for posthumous induction into the NBA Hall of Fame. He put up numbers that no NBA player has been able to match — so far. If Wilt Chamberlain stays healthy, maybe he can catch Toystory. I kid the NBA, but it has had some remarkable fathering stories. Basketball pro Jason Collins was outed for being gay because the accounting office that wrote players’ checks never saw any court orders for child support garnishments. So Collins had to come out as gay. The Wall Street Journal got folks to opine on Toystory. “It is very possible that no other bull will ever surpass his record,” said Keith Heikes, Chief Operating Officer of Genex, which owned the stud. One veterinarian called Toystory “meaner than a snake,” and most feared him. There are actually stories that a cow once attacked a farmer and ate him. But to be fair, if this one incident did happen, we humans are still way ahead of cattle in this area. “The old adage was that as long as he was interested in sex, he was not interested in you,” said Glen Gilbert, VP for Production at Genex (which I believe is that same slogan for Tinder). Bulls come and go, but when Toystory came around, he meant business. The good folks at Genex arranged the cow liaisons for Toystory. They got their training from being Arkansas State Troopers in the early 90s. Being a diligent journalist, I researched Toystory. AP McDonald’s has developed a “quality perception issue” over its handling of worker complaints and it’s sappy ad campaign. Not-so-Golden Arches By JIM HIGHTOWER McDonald’s is scrambling, and I’m not talking about eggs. You know your business has what image consultants call “quality perception issues” when you have to launch a PR initiative that publicly addresses such questions as: “Does McDonald’s beef contain worms?” Thornier yet for the world’s largest burger machine is its boneheaded response to the remarkable, ongoing rebellion by fast-food workers, who’re demanding a $15-an-hour wage and the freedom to unionize without corporate retaliation. The overpaid and clueless executives at McDonald’s responded by — guess what? — retaliating against hundreds of the employees who joined the protests. Big Mac managers illegally reduced the hours (and therefore the pay) of those who joined the “Fight For 15” campaign, spied on them, interrogated and threatened them, and imposed restrictions on their freedom even to talk about unions or working conditions. The corporation now faces federal charges on hundreds of labor law violations — as well as rising customer anger over its ham-handed tactics. Naturally, McDonald’s responded by apologizing and raising worker’s wages. Ha! Just kidding. Instead, it’s running a new series of TV ads that, astonishingly, tries to tap into people’s emotions about such tragic events as 9/11 and the Boston Marathon bombing, as well as linking its logo to people’s positive feelings about veterans, birthdays, and even “love.” McD’s corporate marketing director explains that the ads are all about the Golden Arches shining bright in every community, being with us through the good and the bad. As she puts it, “Who better to stand up for lovin’ than McDonald’s?” What a joke. For over a decade the burger behemoth has pushed its product with an advertising slogan that exuberantly proclaims, “I’m Lovin’ It.” But it turns out that putting words of praise in customers’ mouths doesn’t sell more burgers — in fact, customers have been putting fewer Big Macs, Chicken McNuggets, and other McEdibles in their mouths, causing sales to sag. This decline in affection has to do with the corporation’s boring burger, unappetizing news reports that some of its suppliers have been repackaging expired meat, its corporate-wide policy of paying poverty wages, its ruthless anti-union tactics and its cynical strategy of having tax payers subsidize its labor costs by directing employees to go on food stamps and Medicaid. Not to worry, though, for new CEO Don Thompson (the second replacement in the top slot in only two years) is all over these boo-boos. Is he offering real improvements in quality, wages and benefits, and corporate attitude? Come on — get serious! This is McDonalds, and its investors and bankers don’t fritter away profit-taking on real solutions. Instead, Don is doubling down on that McLovin’ feeling. McD’s new ad campaign is specifically designed to link the corporate brand to the healing power of love. The ads show Batman and the Joker breaking bread together over a Happy Meal, a mailman and a dog finding peace under the Golden Arches, and — how’s this for seriously clever? — a blue donkey and a red elephant sharing common ground at a McDonald’s formica table. Each ad closes with the lovely thought that you, I and everyone everywhere should “Choose Lovin’.” Get it? Choose McDonald’s, for it’s the source of love, and you’ll truly be “Lovin’ It.” Not for nothing is CEO Thompson, who is paid $9.5 million a year, plus full health coverage, a platinum pension and private use of the corporate jet. Where else but America can you be so enriched for preaching Lovin’, while directing your corporate lobbyists to kill any increase in the poverty wages of your employees? Just ask protesting workers about the “love” they’re getting from McDonald’s. Oh, to be fair, the bosses did make one change for workers — new uniforms, supposedly to buff-up the corporation’s public image. That’s not just boneheaded, it’s pathetic! I forgot to mention that most of these low-wage employees were forced to buy the uniforms themselves. How’s that for McLove?

A coalition of folks across the political spectrum ranging from tea party activists to environmentalists have united to launch a campaign to allow the direct sale of solar energy to consumers. Currently, state law only allows utilities to sell power, but a new political action committee, Floridians for Solar Choice, wants to change that. The PAC seeks to get a referendum on the ballot for the 2016 election. They will need 683,149 signatures by Feb. 1, 2016 — an effort that could cost millions of dollars. The PAC argues that Florida is out of touch with the majority of states on solar. “Currently, Florida is one of only five states in the nation that prohibit citizens from buying electricity from companies that will put solar panels on your home or business,” according to the group’s website. We decided to shed a little light on how Florida stacks up on solar energy. While solar has been expanding nationally, Florida isn’t a solar leader: it ranks third in solar capacity but 13th in installations, according to the Solar Energy Industries Association. Solar represents less than 1 percent of Florida’s energy generation, and the state projects only a tiny fraction of percentage growth over the next decade. In November, the Public Service Commission approved allowing utilities to end solar rebates in 2015 and gut energy efficiency goals by 90 percent, because the utilities claimed neither is “cost-effective.” The source of the data on the 5-state ban Florida law only allows a few utilities such as Florida Power & Light, Duke Energy and Tampa Electric to sell power directly to consumers. If a solar power generator wants to get into the state market, it must first sell to one of those utilities. Floridians for Solar Choice want to make it cheaper for residents to buy solar power directly from a provider. The evidence that only five states forbid that kind of direct sale comes from a mapfrom the Database of State Incentives for Renewable Energy (DSIRE), a project based at North Carolina State University funded in part by the U.S. Department of Energy. The map shows the states that allow third-party solar power agreements. Under power purchase agreements (PPAs), an installer/developer builds a solar system on a customer’s property for free and then the developer sells the power to the customer. The map, dated November 2014, shows that at least 24 states allow these third-party solar agreements though in some states there are certain restrictions, such as only allowing them of a certain size or on a type of property. The five states that don’t allow any such agreements are Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, North Carolina and Oklahoma. The map shows the status as unclear or unknown in 21 states. The states that are unclear or are unknown are “because the statutory law is silent about the issue and from what we can gather, no solar companies in these states have attempted to sell electricity directly to a customer,” said Brian Lips, DSIRE Project Manager. That means those 21 states are in a legal gray area, said Ken Johnson, a spokesman for the Solar Energy Industries Association. “It isn’t specifically allowed or disallowed, but given the laws in place, it’s not hard to imagine that a court would uphold the utility’s exclusivity,” Johnson said. “Most states don’t go so far to protect monopoly utilities, but Florida is one of them.” Another way to compare states on solar We sent the group’s claim to spokespersons for Florida’s Public Service Commission and utilities including Duke Energy to ask if they had any information to refute or support the claim. A spokesman for Duke Energy directed us to Solar Power Rocks, a research and advocacy organization which ranks the states on solar policies. On this ranking, Florida landed in the middle of the pack with a “C” and 24th among the states. But this website doesn’t take into account the third-party PPAs — it considers other factors such as whether states offer tax exemptions or rebates for solar. A spokeswoman for the Public Service Commission, Cindy Muir, questioned characterizing Florida as one of only five states with such a ban, since 21 states are classified as unknown. Muir also said that Florida law does allow leases for solar. Under that scenario, a developer installs the solar energy system and the customer pays for it over years rather than paying for the power produced. The advantage of the PPA is that the customer doesn’t hold the production risk. Under a lease, the customer can end up paying the same whether the system ends up producing 100 percent of expected electricity or a lesser amount, according to the Solar Energy Industries Association. Our ruling “Currently, Florida is one of only five states in the nation that prohibit citizens from buying electricity from companies that will put solar panels on your home or business,” says Floridians for Solar Choice website. That statistic comes from a respected academic source that published its findings in 2014. However, the statement doesn’t mean that 45 states allow sales. Currently, 24 states specifically allow an entity to build a solar system on a customer’s property and then sell the power to the customer. In 21 states, the status is unclear or unknown, and pro-solar advocates say few if any sales are happening there. Still, the claim is accurate that only five states specifically prohibit these types of sales. We rate this claim Mostly True. AP A solar array now sits atop a parking structure at The Phoenician in Scottsdale, Ariz. RON HART from page E 1 The farm animal semen business is a shockingly big one. It has had billions in revenues and is on the rise. Farmer use liquid nitrogen to ship 1/20th of a teaspoon for insemination of cows around the world. Much has been made of the high-tech boom in America, but few realize the amazing innovation and productivity of farming. Quality bull seed is valuable. Last year, thieves absconded with $350 worth of bull semen in a brazen theft from a Wisconsin farm. The high-stakes farming industry requires the pursuit of better genetics so cows are more productive, and competition to raise quality beef has sparked innovation. The London Guardian did a story about French farmers letting their cows drink a gallon of Burgundy each day to make them produce more tender beef. It didn’t work. The only things these cows would do after the red wine was to end up drunk, texting Toystory and asking “ ‘Sup, Player?” In a memorial to his prowess, Toystory was laid to rest on the Genex farms on a high spot known as Stony Hill, according to The Denver Post, to “reflect Toystory’s stature.” The report said Tenex plans a larger memorial service in the spring and will name its breeding campus after the bull.

F or locals and even recurring visitors, any news of development in Bay County brings mixed emotions. On the one hand it is a positive sign for the economy but it can also bring traffic problems and change to areas many thought would always remain pristine even if only a handful of us actually took advantage of the secluded sites. And so it goes with 165acres area sandwiched between Tyndall Air Force Base and Mexico Beach. The Bay County Commission granted Sugar Sands Partners a zoning change on the area last week and will allow the developers to build a maximum of 195 residential units and has granted 50,000 square feet of non-residential uses. The development is apparently going forward with the blessing of Tyndall officials because the homes will be under Tyndall’s flight path Hopefully, the fact that all the new structures will be required to meet enhanced noise and vibration reduction standards and that buyers must be informed about the flight path will prevent any complaints when things get loud. Unlike some other developments there hasn’t been much in the way of complaints but these are early days and things often come to a head when the bulldozers start rolling. The News Herald’s John Henderson got a variety of answers when he quizzed visitors and residents about the development. One was happy it would be homes and not condos under the suspicion that homeowners would take better care of the beach. Another believed the developers were asking for trouble because similar developments in the area don’t seem to be taking off. An undeveloped patch of land is often a beautiful sight for those who enjoy nature. And, a developed patch of land can also be wondrous if you live or shop there. But we must agree that there isn’t much worse than a half-developed project that starts with promises and then languishes with asphalt streets to nowhere. Hopefully, Sugar Sands Partners will either be wildly successful or will recognize a bad idea before it is too late. And, as we have often pointed out, the rights of a landowner to do what he or she wishes with their land – without violating others’ rights should almost always take priority over other concerns. It also helps to know that while this section of the beach might be changing another secluded beach nearby will remain untouched. Page E3 | The News Herald | Sunday, January 25, 2015 Viewpoints Developers find a hidden beach G oogle Glass has entered the annals of spectacular product failures. Many bright ideas have foundered on the shoals of consumer rejection. The Product Failure Hall of Fame is too small to contain them all. But a few fall from such enormous heights of hype and hope that they deserve special recognition as awesome. As such, Google Glass (2013) joins the Edsel (1957), Crystal Pepsi (1992) and Clairol’s Touch of Yogurt shampoo (1979) as one of the greats. Oh, there was such promise back in the mists of time — that is, three years ago. While introducing Google Glass, Google co-founder Sergey Brin held a live chat with two skydivers, also wearing their glasses, as they plunged to earth. They landed on the roof of San Francisco’s Moscone Center, where Brin was speaking. The worldwide audience was wowed but remained unclear on what the glasses were for. Would someone please explain “augmented reality”? Anyhow, they went on sale for $1,500 each. Time magazine named Google Glass one of the best innovations of 2012. And fashion models wore them on runways. Some day soon, we’d all have a pair, right? That I still have to explain Google Glass to most of you — and to myself — shows how far short these optimistic predictions fell. No one has to describe an iPhone. Google Glass is a pair of goggle-like glasses that can connect with the Internet. There’s a touchpad on the right side of the glasses — it comes in sky, tangerine, cotton, shale or charcoal — that lets you cruise the Internet with finger commands. You can do wild things like sit in your Google glasses at a desk in Columbus, Ohio, and watch your friend skiing in Bend, Oregon, through hers. (She can also watch you at your desk.) Blink and you can take a picture. Send email with your voice. Say “OK, Glass, record a video” and the glasses start taking a movie. All the above may be downloaded on one’s computer at home. A smartphone can do those things, but you have to take it out for that purpose. This gives those nearby a fighting chance to avoid you. Google Glass’ cool factor — that it lets you take pictures, etc., with a small facial gesture — is also its creep factor. The privacy problem is obvious, and bars and casinos soon banned Google glasses. Museum guards (“no photography allowed”) also grew wise to them. Google Glass was to be the big thing in “wearable tech.” Some watches have joined that game, but they look like watches. Google Glass looks like goofy protective eyewear. Its strange appearance and ability to record activities of strangers in near secrecy have inspired numerous parodies and saddled its wearers with unflattering names. Because Google Glass performs functions that are more easily done with existing gadgets in a less obnoxious way, it fails as tech. Because it looks so weird, its value as fashion is extremely limited. But let’s give its creators a modicum of respect for making a huge gamble. “It is not the critic who counts,” Theodore Roosevelt famously said, but the man who, “if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.” Up in the afterlife, someone is sporting a Google Glass while riding a Segway (2002), wearing platform sneakers (1992), holding a Microsoft Zune (2006) in one hand and eating a McDonald’s Arch Deluxe adult hamburger (1996) with the other. I hope Joan Rivers is giving you a good laugh. Google Glass joins failure hall of fame Our VIEW Tim Thompson, Publisher Mike Cazalas, Editor S.

CNN is airing a documentary on the movie critic Roger Ebert, “Life Itself,” tonight. This is only the latest showing of the documentary on the news network but the Editorial Page Editor caught a previous showing and can recommend it. It is especially for those of you who would watch a movie and then rush to read Ebert’s reviews to find out if you agreed with him. The documentary was filmed during Ebert’s final year alive and spends, perhaps; too much time showing us the gory details of his fight with cancer. But it also spends plenty of telling stories about Ebert’s brushes with the famous and the infamous and showing Ebert during his prime, fighting with Gene Siskel about all kinds of movies. Their shouting match over a Benji movie is a treat. The movie, and Ebert’s autobiography — also titled, “Life Itself,” — on which it is based, are both worth your time.

FIND IT ALL IN THE PANAMA CITY NEWS HERALD MIDDLE SCHOOL STUDENTS COMPETE AT MATHCOUNTS PCB EYESORE DEMOLISHED IN THIS WEEK’S PAPER STARS & GUITARS County ambulance service costly so far PANAMA CITY — Bay County’s ambulance service is falling almost $2 million short of covering its operating costs in its first full fiscal year of operation, but officials hope they will be able to close the gap by collecting millions of dollars in unpaid bills. Total expenditures for the ambulance service for fiscal 2014, which ended Sept. 30, were $6.96 million, or $1.81 million short of breaking even. But there is $7.5 million in outstanding debts the county is trying to collect. Mark Bowen, chief of emergency services, said considerably more time is needed to collect unpaid bills to see whether the several milliondollar shortfall to cover the ambulance services costs is a reality. The commission wants 18 months from the time the service started to analyze the numbers so the collection effort could be evaluated. Bowen, who met with commissioners individually Wednesday to give them the latest numbers, said the subject might be discussed at a commission meeting in April. “Honestly, I wish (the numbers) were better,” Bowen said. “But I also honestly feel like they haven’t been (in place) long enough to know. I wish they were better the first month we were in business, but it would have been completely unrealistic to think there would have been money coming in. It just hasn’t been long enough. We have to wait until we have a reasonable window to do a break-even analysis.” He said cuts to the service aren’t realistic, as there generally is a shortage of paramedics. The county could subsidize the service like many other counties or try to convince a private firm to take it over, he said. The county took over ambulance service Oct. 1, 2013.
