Matthew Lee Horn, 36, of Chipley is charged with vehicular homicide, leaving the scene of a crash with death and driving on a suspended license, according to the Chipley Police Department. Investigators located a Dodge Avenger at 104 Corbin Road about 5:15 p.m. Friday that they believe struck and killed 18-year-old Thomas Richardson, police reported. The resident and vehicle’s owner told investigators the car was loaned to Horn on the night of the accident, according to reports. The homeowner said Horn was inside the home, and officers found him hiding under blankets in a bedroom closet. Horn later told investigators that he was driving the car Thursday night and that he “knew he hit something but didn’t know what it was,” police reported. Police say they believe alcohol was a factor in the crash. Officers recovered a piece of a car at the accident scene Thursday night. They eventually determined it came from a 2010 to 2015 Dodge Avenger. Investigators looked for residents in Washington and Holmes counties who had a Dodge Avenger in that year range registered to them. They eventually found the car after getting a tip from a resident. “As our community always does, an individual came into the Police Department and said that they had seen a Dodge Avenger in Chipley man charged in hit-and-run crash MATTHEW LEE HORN SEE CRASH | A2 By CHRIS OLWELL 747-5079 | @PCNHchriso PANAMA CITY — Like many, if not most 12-year-olds, Logan Chason of Fountain did something stupid last year. Logan had a bad day in November and took to Facebook to let off some steam. Nothing unique about that — except that what he said broke the law. “I’m in a bad mood, so it’s gonna be my worst week, then watch out Merritt Brown Middle School I’m gonna come to school with a gun and start shooting,” he wrote. Logan didn’t have guns or access to guns, and he didn’t actually want to shoot up his school, he said. “It was just the first thing I thought of,” Logan said last Tuesday after a hearing at the juvenile courthouse. His post got the attention of some friends, who criticized him in comments to the post. It also got the attention of someone in Ohio, who found the post and reported Logan to local law enforcement. After investigating, the Bay County Sheriff’s Office arrested Logan and charged him with written threats to kill or do bodily harm, a second-degree felony with the potential to ensure Logan would have no shortage of bad days ahead. Logan took the initiative to write a letter of apology to Bay District Schools Superintendent Bill Husfelt. That wasn’t enough to keep him from being kicked out of Merritt Brown for the rest of the year, but it earned him an ally in Husfelt, who said he must have threatened to kill his brothers a thousand times when he was 12. “When I was growing up and you said something like that, people would just ignore it,” Husfelt said. “Somewhere, some point, we’ve got to get back an understanding that kids are going to say 12-year-old learns hard lesson from Facebook post SEE FACEBOOK | A3 THERE WAS ‘A MISTAKE’ By CHRIS OLWELL 747-5079 | @PCNHchriso TYNDALL AIR FORCE BASE — A group of small business owners concerned about the potential impact of a plan to restrict public access to local waterways alleges the base’s security forces have overstepped their bounds. Friends of Shell Island, a group formed in 2013 in opposition to Tyndall Air Force Base’s waterway security plan, heard from boaters of at least four incidents in which base security forces operated in off-base waters near Shell Island and detained a civilian even before the controversial plan is in place, according to the group. Stephanie Somerset, who leads Friends of Shell Island, filed a complaint that alleged base security illegally detained a fisherman last fall. According to the complaint, military police noticed a boater fishing in Crooked Island Sound on the night of Oct. 1 and waved him to the boat launch. The fisherman complied, and once he stepped on land police handcuffed and detained him for two to three hours, during which time his phone, wallet and boat were searched without consent or a valid warrant. The complaint alleges police threatened him with arrest and asset seizure while he was detained. ON THE WEB Read complaints at . Tyndall security activity prompts complaints ANDREW WARDLOW | The News Herald Sunjammers Watersports owner Brad Stephens sets up a display at his store on Beck Avenue. Stephens’ customers like to fish in an area that could be affected by Tyndall Air Force Base’s waterway security plan.

The incident was a realization of all the fears of Friends of Shell Island members. It was a peek into the future for boaters wor ried about public access to the water. “This is exactly the kind of thing we’ve said could happen,” Somerset said. “It proves that our fears were not unfounded.” Tyndall public affairs officer Herman Bell confirmed that an incident with a civilian boater did occur and “there was a mis take made.” Bell did not provide details or confirm it happened as alleged in Somerset’s complaint. “There was an incident,” Bell said. “I’m not going to release any details of it.” Bell also doubted the inspec tor general would release details from its investigation to Somerset because she filed a third-party complaint. She didn’t see the events she described in the com plaint, and she didn’t identify the fisherman involved, who she said wished to remain anonymous for fear of retaliation. Bell noted the fisherman had made no complaint after the incident. “The fisherman that was there, we have satisfied,” Bell said. “Quite frankly, it’s none of their business.” Waterway restriction plan The complaint is the group’s latest move to oppose what members say is a threat to their livelihoods. In 2013 in the Federal Register, military leaders quietly released their plan, which would give the base authority to restrict civilian access to many of the area’s most popular boating destinations. After boaters learned of the plan, the backlash was swift, the plans were withdrawn and Tyndall offi cials promised to revisit the issue in a more transparent fashion. Later that year, the plan reemerged with slight modifica tions based on feedback from the public. In a nod toward transpar ency, Tyndall officials hosted two open houses to discuss the plan and face the angry boaters who complained of being steamrolled by restrictions so vague they could be interpreted as giving base leaders authority to close the waterways permanently with out explanation. The proposal would give Tyndall the authority to restrict access to several popular bayous as well as anywhere within 500 feet of the shoreline along the base. That area is a sweet spot for customers at Sunjammers Water sports, which sells kayaks, often to people who want to fish, owner Brad Stephens said. “We do like to be in that 400to 500-foot range because we want to stay clear of boat traffic,” Ste phens said. Tyndall officials said the water would be closed only if they received information about a spe cific security threat, but added that such a threat is unlikely and any restrictions imposed would be for a limited time. Still, many residents remain convinced the proposal is so broad and vague it could be abused. Those abuses already have begun, says Friends of Shell Island, which counts more than 50 small business owners as members. Somerset actually filed two complaints with Tyndall’s inspec tor general. The other one alleges that military police are violating Posse Commitatus, the law that prohibits the military from con ducting civilian law enforcement, by patrolling state waters. Tyndall public affairs officer Lt. Christopher Bowyer-Meeder said Tyndall has vessels that oper ate in the state-controlled waters off the base’s shore, but they’re not conducting law enforcement. Rather, the vessels are monitor ing for potential security threats, he said. If base security were to observe anything that might war rant law enforcement attention, they would call the Coast Guard, which can enforce the law on the water. “We have waterways around our base, and we have to patrol them to keep them safe,” Bell said. Somerset’s complaints seek the withdrawal of the waterway security proposal until officials provide a written description of the base security force’s policies for interaction with civilians on water around the base, including arrest and detention policies. Chilling effect? Bill Molnar, a local fisherman who served 20 years in the mili tary, said incidents like the one cited in the complaint will have a chilling effect on boaters and fish ermen. Power perceived is power achieved, he said. If base security forces harass enough boaters, the idea of visiting the areas will lose its appeal quickly, even if their authority over civilians techni cally ends where the water meets the sand. “All you need is a few incidents and the perception becomes the reality,” Molnar said. “Just imag ine when they get that authority.” That ultimately is what Somer set and the Friends of Shell Island are trying to prevent. Somerset’s complaints say the waterway security plan should be consid ered an “arbitrary and capricious use of discretion,” enforcement efforts by security forces consti tute government waste, and that military police are not prepared to exercise the expanded authority the plan would grant. “This complaint has been filed because, since the regulation was proposed, the Tyndall MP organization continues to act in bad faith toward the civilian pub lic, and as a result have not dem onstrated the ability to handle any proposed increase in authority acceptably,” Somerset wrote. The News Herald attempted to interview Tyndall security offi cials for this report. The interview was not possible, but Bell issued a written statement after reviewing Somerset’s complaints. He said because the anony mous fisherman has not filed a formal complaint, Tyndall consid ers that incident a private mat ter and will not release any more information about it. Bell also addressed the approval process for the water way security proposal. “Tyndall’s waterway security proposal is currently working through the approval process and is being reviewed by the Army Corps of Engineers. The Corps will post the document after mak ing necessary adjustments, at which point it will once again be open for public review and com ment,” Bell said. “Upon notifica tion that the Corps is posting the proposal, we will inform the pub lic through all available means, including public forums, that the document is available for public review and comment. We value the input of all our community members and look forward to their continued engagement in this important process.” FROM THE FRONT the Chipley area with damage that was consistent with the damage of our suspect vehicle,” Police Chief Kevin Crews said. “Not only did the individual report the sighting of our possible suspect vehicle, the individual was able to provide us with the vehicle’s tag number which led us to Corbin Road.” Horn was found less than 24 hours after the accident. Officers were dispatched to the area of South Boulevard and Iona Street about 6:13 p.m. Thursday after they received word that a pedestrian had been hit, police reported. Richardson, of Wausau, was searching for an elderly woman’s missing dog, according to police. He found the animal dead on the side of the road and was waiting for police to arrive when he was struck, according to reports. Richardson was taken by ambulance to Northwest Florida Community Hospital and was airlifted from there to Bay Medical Sacred Heart in Panama City. He died at 11:08 p.m. CRASH from Page A1 TYNDALL SECURITY from Page A1 ANDREW W ARDLO W | The News Herald Tyndall Air Force Base property is seen across the water. MA N AT EE (AP) — A St. Petersburg man is working to create a memorial for the 35 people who died in the 1980 Skyway Bridge disaster. The Bradenton Herald reported that journalist Bill DeYoung is working to raise $8,000 to erect the granite-andbronze memorial before a 35th anniver sary event on May 9. A 600-foot freighter struck the south bound span of Tampa’s Sunshine Sky way Bridge during a violent storm on May 9, 1980. De Young worked through the Flor ida Legislature to secure the monu ment, which was officially approved in a bill signed by Gov. Rick Scott in June. De Young is the author of a recently published book detailing the history of the bridge disaster. “I was shocked and saddened that this dark day was fading into history, and very surprised there was noth ing to memorialize these people,” DeYoung told the newspaper. “This is the worst ship-and-bridge disaster in American history.” The memorial with the names of those killed will sit on a grassy stretch of land in the northside rest area between Blackthorn Memorial Park and the old Skyway fishing piers, DeY oung said. Although the state did not pursue a marker for the 35 who died, Zach ary Burch, a government affairs liai son with the Florida Department of Transportation, said the state supports DeYoung’s effort. “It will be up to him or an organiza tion to come up with the funds for the marker itself,” he said. DeYoung hopes the public will donate the $8,000 needed for the memorial. “We’ve raised about $2,000 already so we are a quarter of the way there,” he said. “We are starting to contact family members and hope to get as many as we can locate to come to the dedication.” The monument will features a bronze plaque that will include a bas relief of the twin Skyway spans before the 1980 accident, It will also have the names of the 35 victims engraved under the words IN MEMORIAM, along with a brief explanation of the events of May 9, 1980.

Sunday, February 1, 2015 | The News Herald | Page A3 and do dumb things.” Things have changed since Husfelt was a child. In an era when mass school shootings command the attention of the nation, even the empty threats of a 12-year-old simply cannot be ignored. But Husfelt said he struggled to find a response proportional to the offense. Although Logan was kicked out of Merritt Brown, he was allowed to enroll at C.C. Washington Academy, where he makes As and Bs, he said. What’s different What separates Logan from other 12-year-olds who dabble in idiocy is that what Logan did was reported in print and television news and captured for posterity on the Internet. The Sheriff’s Office issued a news release to local media outlets that said a student had threatened vio lence on the school campus, so there would an increased BCSO presence at the school. BCSO released the information out of concern that parents with inaccurate or incomplete information might worry unnecessarily, especially since it already was on social media, BCSO spokeswoman Ruth Corley said. BCSO sometimes iden tifies juveniles accused of crimes, but in Logan’s case he was not identified. Whether to identify a juvenile hinges on several factors, including the sever ity of the crime, said Sher iff’s Maj. Tommy Ford. The Sheriff’s Office is sensitive that identifying a juvenile crime suspect can have a negative impact, includ ing the possibility that the accusations will live forever online, he said. “Certainly, the decisions you make have conse quences, and in the Inter net age this is one of those,” Ford said. “But we are sensitive.” Because he was charged with a felony, the Sheriff’s Office was required to release documents that did identify him to anyone, including reporters, who asked for them. Logan was identified in media reports that still show up in a Google search. Logan said he was threatened by classmates and that his grandmother got grief from strangers. “He’s going to have this for a while,” Husfelt said. About Logan Logan is being raised by grandparents. His parents are substance abusers who hurt Logan when he was a small child until they sur rendered their parental rights, said his grandfather, Roy Tipps. Tipps agreed Logan needed to take responsibility for his Facebook post, but a felony charge seemed like a disproportionate response. “If they charge him with a felony, they just ruined that kid’s life,” Tipps said before Logan’s court appearance. Logan doesn’t know what he wants to do with his life when he’s an adult. He enjoys writing, and he’s written a few horror sto ries. One of them is about a man’s descent into insanity during a period of prolonged isolation. His family has a tradition of military service. Tipps said he was a hell-raiser in his youth, too, but the mili tary straightened him out. “I have no idea” if he plans to serve in the mili tary, Tipps said, “but I don’t want that option taken away from him.” Tipps wanted a plea deal that would get Logan out from under the felony charge, but after going to court several times he said felt like he was getting nowhere. Logan’s public defender could not get the prosecutor to come down from the felony. But he got some trac tion in court last Tuesday. Logan was offered a chance to plead to a misdemeanor count of assault on a School Board employee and serve up to a year on probation. He would have to abide by a 6 p.m. curfew for 30 days, complete 50 hours of com munity service and satisfy some other conditions. Logan took the deal. Judge Allen Register initially ordered him to write a letter of apology to Merritt Brown administrators, but when he learned Logan already had written such a letter to Husfelt, he instead ordered a letter to the BCSO. An emergency response to an event that turns out not to be an emergency puts first responders and citizens in danger, Register told Logan. “Always remember that what you do doesn’t only affect you. Work to make sure that is a good effect,” Register said. Logan said after the hearing that he was relieved to have the incident behind him, as far as that goes. He acknowledged his punish ment could have been more severe and said he’s learned a lesson. “I have to watch what I do,” Logan said. Husfelt said he hoped other students would take the same lesson. “My hope and prayer is that kids learn from Logan’s mistake,” he said. MOVI NG FOR WA RD Pe rsonal Ba nk ing . Le nding So lutions .

Aides said it was a deeply personal and even painful decision for the 2012 Republican presidential nominee. He insisted he could win the next election if he ran, but his announce ment followed a three-week fact-finding effort that revealed significant resistance to a third campaign. “I believe that one of our next generation of Republican leaders, one who may not be as wellknown as I am today, one who has not yet taken their message across the country, one who is just getting started, may well emerge as being better able to defeat the Democrat nominee,” Romney told supporters on a conference call. “In fact, I expect and hope that to be the case.” The remark was both a recognition of his own limitations and an indirect swipe at the man who created the urgency behind Romney’s brief flirtation with a third presidential campaign. That is former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, the son and brother of former presidents, who is speed ing toward a campaign of his own. Bush and New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie would have served as Romney’s most likely rivals for the support of the GOP establish ment, and both men felt an immediate effect. The announcement sparked a rush of activity by Romney loyalists — operatives and donors alike — suddenly freed to support another White House hopeful as the crowded 2016 field begins to take shape. Devoted Romney supporter Bill Kunkler, part of Chicago’s wealthy Crown family, said he was disappointed by Friday’s news but now was all-in for Bush. “I’ll work for Jeb. Period. And no one else,” Kunkler said, noting that he planned to attend a Feb. 18 Chicago fundraiser for Bush hosted by former Romney backers. Bobbie Kilberg, a top GOP fundraiser based in Virginia, quickly settled on Christie. “We had long and deep ties and friendship with Mitt,” she said. “That has changed obvi ously, at 11 o’clock this morning.” Romney not running: Former GOP nominee out of 2016 race WASHINGTON (AP) — After a year of relative peace in Washington’s budget bat tles, President Barack Obama will lay out a $4 trillion bud get on Monday that needles Republicans with proposals for higher taxes on the wealthy and businesses to pay for edu cation, public works projects and child care. The plan, expected to be dismissed by GOP lawmakers now running Capitol Hill, rolls out as the deficit is dropping and Obama’s poll numbers inch higher. Alhough Republi cans will march ahead on their own, they ultimately must come to terms with Obama, whose signature is needed on anything that is going to become law. Big challenges loom: the need to increase the govern ment’s borrowing limit; a deadline for sustaining high way funding; a bipartisan effort to ease painful, automatic cuts to the Pentagon and domes tic agencies. Those cuts are the byproduct of Washington’s previous failures to tackle the government’s deficit woes. First on the agenda is the need to finalize the currentyear budget for the Depart ment of Homeland Security. It’s tied up over a GOP demand to reverse Obama’s Novem ber executive actions that extended work permits and temporary deportation relief to some 4 million people in the U.S. illegally. Funding for the department runs out Feb. 27. Obama planned a bud get speech at the department Monday. A defiant Obama challenged the GOP in his radio and Inter net address Saturday. “If they have ideas that will help middle-class families feel some economic security, I’m all in to work with them. But I will keep doing everything I can to help more working families make ends meet and get ahead. Not just because we want everyone to share in America’s success — but because we want everyone to contribute to America’s suc cess,” he said. Republicans insisted they are the champions of the mid dle class. “Expanding opportunity, protecting middle-class sav ings, holding government accountable: These are your priorities, which means they are Republicans’ priorities,” Kansas Rep. Lynn Jenkins said in the GOP response to the president’s radio address. Obama’s plan will con tain familiar prescriptions. He wants higher taxes on upper bracket earners and the oil and gas industry. He is proposing new initiatives for education and child care. He is pitching investments in roads, bridges and other proj ects. And he is pushing for increases for annual agency operating budgets. The requests come after a mostly tranquil year when Senate Democrats and House Republicans put in place the second year of a 2013 deal that eased the harshest of the automatic cuts. Repub licans backed away from a confrontation over raising the government’s borrowing cap.BARACK O B AMA Obama budget sets up battle with GOP-controlled Congress

M This file image taken from an online video purportedly released by the Islamic State group’s al-Furqan media arm purports to show the group threatening to kill two Japanese hostages Jan. 20. The militants identifed the hostages as Kenji Goto, left, and Haruna Yukawa. AP BAGHDAD (AP) — When Islamic State group mili tants invaded the Central Library of Mosul earlier this month, they were on a mission to destroy a famil iar enemy: other people’s ideas. Residents say the extremists smashed the locks that had protected the biggest repository of learning in the northern Iraq town, and loaded about 2,000 books — including children’s stories, poetry, philosophy and tomes on sports, health, culture and science — into six pickup trucks. They left only Islamic texts. The rest? “These books promote infidelity and call for dis obeying Allah. So they will be burned,” a bearded mili tant in traditional Afghani two-piece clothing told residents, according to one man living nearby. The man, who spoke on condi tion of anonymity because he feared retaliation, said the Islamic State group offi cial made his impromptu address as others stuffed books into empty flour bags. Since the Islamic State group seized a third of Iraq and neighboring Syria, they have sought to purge society of everything that doesn’t conform to their violent interpretation of Islam. They already have destroyed many archaeo logical relics, deeming them pagan, and even Islamic sites considered idolatrous. Increasingly books are in the firing line. Mosul, the biggest city in the Islamic State group’s self-declared caliphate, boasts a relatively edu cated, diverse population that seeks to preserve its heritage sites and libraries. In the chaos that followed the U.S.-led invasion of 2003 that toppled Saddam Hus sein, residents near the Central Library hid some of its centuries-old manu scripts in their own homes to prevent their theft or destruction by looters. But this time, the Islamic State group has made the penalty for such actions death. Presumed destroyed are the Cen tral Library’s collection of Iraqi newspapers dating to the early 20th century, maps and books from the Ottoman Empire and book collections contributed by about 100 of Mosul’s estab lishment families. Days after the Central Library’s ransacking, mili tants broke into University of Mosul’s library. They made a bonfire out of hun dreds of books on science and culture, destroying them in front of students. Libraries ransacked by Islamic State group AMMAN, Jordan (AP) — An online video released Saturday night purported to show an Islamic State group militant behead Jap anese journalist Kenji Goto, ending days of negotiations by diplomats to save the man. The video, released on militant websites and high lighted by militant sym pathizers on social media sites, bore the symbol of the Islamic State group’s al-Furqan media arm. Although the video could not be immediately independently verified by The Associated Press, it conformed to other behead ing videos released by the extremists, who now con trol a third of both Syria and neighboring Iraq in its selfdeclared caliphate. The video, called “A Mes sage to the Government of Japan,” featured a militant who looked and sounded like a militant with a Brit ish accent who has taken part in other beheading videos by the Islamic State group. Goto, kneeling in an orange prison jumpsuit, said nothing in the roughly one-minute-long video. “Abe,” the militant says in the video, referring to Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, “because of your reckless decision to take part in an unwinnable war, this man will not only slaughter Kenji, but will also carry on and cause carnage wherever your people are found. So let the nightmare for Japan begin.” Video: IS group beheads Japanese journalist Japan ‘indignant’ over purported video of hostage beheading TOKYO (AP) — Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe expressed outrage Sunday over a video purportedly from the Islamic State group that shows a militant beheading hostage Kenji Goto. “I feel indignation over this immoral and heinous act of terrorism,” Abe told reporters after convening an emergency Cabinet meeting. He vowed that Japan will not give in to terrorism and will continue to provide humanitarian aid to countries ghting the Islamic State extremists.

Page A8 | The News Herald | Sunday, February 1, 2015 NATIO N & WORLD ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — An audacious, nearly 7,000-mile-long trip across the Pacific Ocean came to an end Saturday as two accomplished pilots safely touched down in the water just off the coast of Mexico in their helium-filled balloon after shattering two long-standing records. Troy Bradley of Albuquer que and Leonid Tiukhtyaev of Russia landed 4 miles offshore in Baja California about 300 miles north of the popular beach destination of Cabo San Lucas. Initial plans called for a landing on the beach, but the pilots decided to come in low and drop trailing ropes into the ocean to help slow the bal loon for a controlled water landing. Mission control in Albu querque was packed with supporters of the Two Eagles team as the balloon descended, with all eyes focused on a giant screen showing a map of the coast and the balloon’s location. It wasn’t until the crowd received word that the pilots were safe and aboard a fish ing boat headed to the shore that cheers erupted and the cork was popped on a bottle of champagne. “I can say on behalf of the entire mission control center that we are all very excited and relieved,” mis sion control director Steve Shope said. Bradley and Tiukhtyaev lifted off from Japan last Sunday morning. By Friday, they beat what’s considered the “holy grail” of ballooning achievements, the 137-hour duration record set in 1978 by the Double Eagle crew of Ben Abruzzo, Maxie Ander son and Larry Newman in the first balloon flight across the Atlantic. They also eas ily exceeded the distance record of 5,209 miles set by the Double Eagle V team during the first trans-Pacific flight in 1981. By the time they landed Saturday, the pilots had traveled 6,646 miles over six days, 16 hours and 38 minutes. “These are significant improvements over the existing records,” Shope said. “We didn’t break them by just a little bit. They were broken by a significant amount.” The world has been tracking the progress of the Two Eagles Balloon online and through social media sites. Still, the official distance and time of the flight must be confirmed by the Federation Aeronau tique Internationale, a pro cess that could take weeks or months. “There will be no disput ing whatsoever that they connected the dots,” said Sam Parks, president of the Southwestern region of the Balloon Federation of America. He pointed to all the monitoring and tracking equipment aboard the bal loon and the witnesses who watched the launch and the landing. “We are so proud of what Troy and Leonid have done. They have certainly set the bar high for all of us,” Parks said. The trans-Pacific flight was 15 years in the mak ing. Bradley and his family spent countless hours think ing about every aspect of the journey, said his wife, Tami Bradley, who is a bal loon pilot herself. “For Troy, it’s a personal thing to do something bet ter than anyone else in the world has done it before and to push himself,” she said. Bradley already holds numerous ballooning records. And his list of heroes includes none other than Abruzzo and Anderson.

Mark Andrus, 59, had been spotted on surveil lance footage near where the suitcase was discov ered and was booked into county jail hours after he was detained as a “person of interest,” Officer Grace Gatpandan said. Gatpandan said she could not comment on exactly how police linked Andrus to the body, but said they were aided by the surveillance footage and witness statements. She did not have any addi tional information about Andrus, the body parts found in the suitcase or a possible motive. Police received a call on Friday night on the department’s anonymous tip line that a “person of interest” in the suitcase incident had been spotted in the city’s Tenderloin neighborhood, Gatpan dan said. They responded and detained two people, including Andrus. Police had released photos of Andrus from the surveillance footage ear lier in the day showing him in a striped baseball cap, light blue jeans and a blue and orange jacket. On Friday night, Police Chief Greg Suhr confirmed a “person of interest” was detained for questioning, the San Francisco Chron icle reported. The suitcase was found Wednesday afternoon on a street in the city’s South of Market neighborhood. More body parts were found in a trash can nearby. The San Francisco medical examiner determined that the remains belong to an unidentified light-skinned man. Authorities will now turn to a DNA laboratory to identify him.

NEW YORK (AP) — Drivers, bring your vehicles back to the shop for more work on faulty air bags. The government says more than 2 mil lion Toyota, Chrysler and Honda vehicles need a second fix for air bags that may inad vertently inflate while the car is running. The recall includes some Acura MDX, Dodge Viper, Jeep Grand Cherokee, Honda Odyssey, Pontiac Vibe, Toyota Corolla and Toyota Avalon models made from 2002 to 2004. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration says all of the vehicles covered in Saturday’s announcement had already been under a recall for the faulty air bags. Carmakers originally tried to fix the defects by partially replacing the elec tronic control unit, made by TRW Auto motive Holdings Corp. of Livonia, Mich., but that fix didn’t always work. The new remedy — full replacement of the unit — will be available to all affected vehicles by the end of the year. However, the NHTSA is urging consum ers with cars under the first recall to have the partial unit installed despite the fix’s failure rate, even if they have to return to the dealer under the second recall. “Even though it’s a temporary solution until the new remedy is available,” NHTSA Administrator Mark Rosekind said, con sumers “and their families will be safer if they take the time to learn if their vehicle is covered and follow their manufacturers’ instructions.” About 39 air bags, or 15 percent, that had been replaced under the previous recall have deployed inadvertently again. The agency says about 1 million Toyota and Honda vehicles involved in the new recalls are also subject to a separate recall related to defective air bags made by Takata Corp. of Japan. Those air bags can deploy and rupture with enough force to cause injury or death. Drivers: Return to your dealers for a second air bag recall fix

NATIO N & WORLD Sunday, February 1, 2015 | The News Herald | Page A11 GILBERT, W.Va. (AP) — After generations of bootleg ging, direct descendants of the Hatfields have teamed up with the McCoy name to produce legal moonshine in southern West Virginia with the state’s blessing — the start of a new legacy for the families made famous for their 19th-century feud. Production of “Drink of the Devil” has been in full swing at a distillery on origi nal Hatfield land, bringing batches to the nation’s store shelves using the original recipe of family patriarch William Anderson “Devil Anse” Hatfield. Overseen by Chad Bishop, husband of Hatfield’s greatgreat-great-granddaughter, all the work is done by hand in a converted garage on a mountainside 6 miles from “Devil Anse” Hatfield’s gravesite. After going through fer mentation and distilling pro cesses at Hatfield & McCoy Moonshine, batches are bottled, corked and pack aged in-house before being shipped to West Virginia, Florida, Kentucky, New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Virginia. “This is as close as you’ll get to the way it was made 150 years ago,” Bishop said. Among those lending knowledge and elbow grease to the business are Bishop’s wife, Amber, and her mother, Nancy Hatfield, the oldest living descendant of “Devil Anse.” Ronald McCoy, a greatgreat grandson of McCoy patriarch Randolph “Ole Ran’l” McCoy, was a con sultant for the distillery’s startup and the product’s testing and marketing. Sold in 25-ounce bottles, moonshine is essentially whiskey that hasn’t aged. The business sells between 1,800 and 3,000 bottles each month at $32.99 per bottle. “I’ll be honest. It’s just kind of crazy,” Amber Bishop said. “We never dreamed that it was ever going to be anything like this.” Considering the families’ history, her ancestors prob ably wouldn’t have, either. The feud between the Hatfields of West Virginia and the McCoys of Kentucky is believed to have begun in the 1870s over a stolen pig and escalated over tim ber rights. By 1888, at least 12 people had died as a result of the shooting war. The violence ended by 1900, and a truce signed in 2003 marked an official end to the conflict. Now, in the name of commerce, the families are banding together. “They really take it very seriously,” distillery attorney Greg Chiartas said. “It really is about economic develop ment for them.” Interest in the former feud spiked in 2012 when a miniseries co-starring Kevin Costner and Bill Pax ton aired on cable television. A year later a cable real ity show featured several Hatfield descendants and relatives of the McCoys on the maternal side. After the state passed legislation allowing for regulated moonshine dis tilleries, Chad Bishop, a former longtime coal miner who also comes from a long line of family moonshiners, acquired the necessary permits in 2012. The distill ery started shipping to the state Alcohol Beverage Con trol warehouse in Novem ber 2013 for distribution to retailers. The equipment alone to get the operation started cost $200,000, and there have been other challenges. Making batches with local products has kept the profit margin low. The operation is in an ongoing trademark dispute with a Missouri-based group of investors that also wants the Hatfield and McCoy fam ily names on its moonshine products.

Some people are just not happy unless they are complaining about something. I’m in my 60s but don’t forget what it was like to be young. Some here must have never been young at all. Moaning about spring breakers. Young man killed doing a good deed. How very sad. The hit-and-run driver won’t get away with it. Karma’s around the corner, followed by cops. That new dog park is the cat’s meow! Weaving in and out of traffic with nowhere to go is so ridiculous. Are cars supposed to get out of your way? Some drivers never fail to amaze. Have cruise ships. Here? Good grief. We can’t have casinos. Too much fun for some. No matter, both would bring even more visitors to P.C. When the Spring Break noise and rowdiness wakes me up this year, the elected ones can expect a phone call from me even at 3 a.m. I promise that. Wine, you are my friend. Why do you hurt me so much in the morning? Some think they know so much about foreign policy when they themselves have never set foot outside P.C., let alone the U.S. Stunning. Sunday! Pay it forward one of our favorite things to do. Find a soldier or a police officer! If I watch the entire all-day Super Bowl pregame show, I’ll be asleep by game time. This snowbird always tips at least 20 percent, if not more! Hate it when I read about cheap snowbirds! We consider this our home away from home! Isn’t it funny how the state of Florida wants us to buy lottery tickets but they won’t legalize casinos? I want to thank the customer who found my purse in the parking lot of the Callaway Wal-Mart and turned it in at the service desk. Thank you! We’ve now lost fishing, oysters and most everything else we’ve worked for. Might as well throw in Shell Island. Readers sound off Squall Line appears daily.

The accident occurred about 7 p.m. on U.S. 98 at Mussett Bayou Road in Walton County, according to the Florida Highway Patrol. Ian C. Lara, 21, of Santa Rosa Beach, was driving west in the outside lane of U.S. 98 at “a high rate of speed,” when he came up behind a 2013 Cadillac Escalade driven by Ronald G. Rayon, of St. Joseph, Mich., the FHP reported. Lara’s 2007 Infiniti struck the rear of the Escalade, which was knocked off the road. The SUV then rolled over a 2013 Ford Fusion that had stopped on Mussett Bayou Road at the U.S. 98 intersection, according to the FHP. The Cadil lac ended up stopped on the north shoulder of the highway. A passenger in the Escalade, 67-year-old Mary Jane Rayon, of St. Joseph, Mich., was dead at the scene, the FHP reported. Ronald Rayon was taken to Sacred Heart Hospital in Pensacola with serious injuries. He was listed in stable condition Saturday afternoon, a hospital rep resentative said. Lara’s Infinity continued west after it struck the Escalade and hit a street sign and a tree on the north shoulder of U.S. 98, accord ing to the FHP. Lara and his passenger, 20-year-old Corey J. Ander son of DeFuniak Springs, were taken to Sacred Heart Hospital on the Emerald Coast in Miramar Beach with minor injuries. The driver of the Fusion, 21-year-old Elvia Hargis, and passenger 4-year-old Adam Hargis, both of Santa Rosa Beach, were not hurt. Lara was arrested on multiple charges, including DUI man slaughter. He was booked into Walton County Jail in DeFuniak Springs. 1 person killed in crash; man faces DUI manslaughter charge IAN LARA By JOHN HENDERS ON 522-5108 | @PCNHjohn P ANA M A CIT Y — Bay Dunes golfers plan to show up in force at Tuesday’s Bay County Commission meeting to try to persuade commis sioners not to throw in the towel on efforts to keep the course open. “I’m going to rally the troops,” said Carolyn Rossmann, an avid golfer at Bay Dunes. “We’ll have a contingency. It may be bigger than the last time.” The county received no proposals from a recent request for compa nies to make offers to operate the course. Interim County Manager Dan Shaw said he plans to ask com missioners whether they want to continue to employ Holiday Golf Course to operate Bay Dunes for the next few months. “The immediate decision is whether they want to continue to run the course two more months now that they’ve proven they can’t get anyone to operate it,” Shaw said. Shaw said experts have said it would cost $700,000 to redo the greens, bunkers, irrigation sys tem and cart paths. It’s money the county doesn’t have, he said. “It’s a pretty consistent number for everyone who has looked at it,” he said. “It needs a lot of work.” The county had planned to shut down Bay Dunes in early Decem ber, but commissioners decided to hire Holiday Golf Course to operate it with a county subsidy of $25,000 a month so officials could gauge the course’s finances and have time to advertise for a golf management company to take over the course. Bay Dunes, at 5304 Majette Tower Road, opened in the early 1990s after it was built on top of an old county landfill. Tony Ray had leased out the course property since 2011. County officials recently served him an evic tion notice after he could not pro duce a bond the county required. Rossmann said she hasn’t given up hope on the course remaining open. “I have a few questions to ask” commissioners, she said. Golfers plan shot at keeping Bay Dunes openSEE B AY DUNES | B6 By AMANDA B ANK S 522-5118|@pcnhamanda P ANA M A CIT Y — One woman has supported local charities for 20 years now with her annual doll show. Marie Howard is the brains behind the North Florida Doll Show and Sale. As the sole promoter, she does all the work, from organizing vendors to distributing fliers. “It’s my baby, but friends and family help a lot,” Howard said. Howard said she has been collecting dolls for about 50 years and has 5,000 now. She said she likes “anything from the 1950s,” especially vintage hard plastic dolls. Those were the kinds of dolls she had as a child. “Most people that collect dolls, they want what they had in their childhood,” Howard said. Some 15 vendors were on hand at Saturday’s show at the Holiday Inn Select, selling all kinds of dolls, from a tall French doll dating to the 1880s to Star Wars figurines still in their packaging. Doll accessories also were available, along with books on doll collecting and even some vintage jewelry.

Now, a state senator wants to offer a lasting tribute to Tupelo honey. Senate Agriculture Committee Chairman Bill Montford, D-Tallahassee, has proposed a bill (SB 556) that would designate Tupelo honey as the “offi cial Florida state honey.” The sweet substance is produced in Northwest Florida and has its own festival in Wewahitchka, which is in Montford’s dis trict. The senator could not be reached for comment about his bill, but at least one Tupelo honey expert in Wewahitchka liked the proposal. “I think it’s a cool idea,” said Louise Bryant, who works at L.L. Lanier and Son’s Tupelo Honey. L.L. Lanier harvests and sells the honey. Bry ant said Florida is the only place that harvests Tupelo honey. The good thing about the honey is that it has a unique flavor and doesn’t crystallize, which means it doesn’t turn to sugar like some honeys do, she said. Connie Parrish, Wewa hitchka’s city clerk, works behind the scenes for the town’s annual Tupelo Honey Festival, which will be May 16 this year. She said the festival is good for the com munity and noted that it attracted 3,000 people and 100 vendors last year. “The flavor’s not bad,” Parrish said. Lawmaker proposes bill to honor Tupelo honey News Herald le photo Women check out bees during the Tupelo Honey Festival in 2008.

She loved old-timey westerns and Bruce Lee movies, home-made hot chocolate and Christmas. She touched many lives over the decades with her acts of kindness, large and small. She met all of life’s challenges with grace and an indomitable spirit to the end. She is survived by her children, Nancy Pugh and David Pugh, both of Panama City, Fla., and former News-Herald managing editor Joyce Pugh of Tallahassee, Fla.; two grandchildren, Jennifer Bookout Law and Chris (Liza) Rogers; five great-grandchildren, Charles Nicholas (Jamie) Bookout, Madison Law, Bailey Rogers, Sean Law and C.J. Rogers; and one great-great-grandchild, Jayden Luna Bookout, all of Panama City, Fla.; one brother, Ed Brown of Montgomery, Ala.; one cousin, Ruby Skelton of San Antonio, Texas; and a host of nieces and nephews in Alabama. Mrs. Pugh was predeceased by her beloved mother, Annie Lee Rudder Brown Franklin; her father, Carl N. Brown; her brother, Thomas Brown; three sisters, Dorothy “Dot” Andrews, Polly Brown and Martha Jean Brown; her husband, William Watkins Pugh; and two great-grandchildren. A memorial service is planned for later with family and friends in Montgomery, Ala. Libraries were one of Mrs. Pugh’s favorite places to linger; she even could spend an hour in a Bookmobile (for those of you old enough to know what that is!). In honor of Mrs. Pugh’s memory, her children are requesting that family and friends please consider making a small donation to a public library in their community.

WASHINGTON — Here’s how area members of Congress — Reps. Jeff Miller, R-Chumuckla, and Gwen Graham, D-Tallahassee, and Sens. Marco Rubio, R., and Bill Nelson, D. — voted on major issues in the week ending Jan. 30: HOUSE EXPEDITED NATURAL-GAS EXPORTS: Voting 277 for and 133 against, the House on Jan. 28 passed a bill (HR 351) requiring prompt Department of Energy action on applications from U.S. firms to export liquefied natu ral gas to countries with which America does not have free-trade agreements. The bill requires the department to issue a final decision within 30 days after environmental reviews have been completed. Crit ics said this would weaken DOE reviews of whether applications are in the public interest in terms of assuring adequate, affordable domestic supplies of natural gas. A yes vote was to send the bill to the Senate, where it may face a 60-vote hurdle. Voting yes: Miller, Graham EXPORT BAN TO STATE SPON SORS OF TERRORISM: Voting 175 for and 237 against, the House on Jan. 28 defeated a Democratic motion to deny the export of U.S. natural gas under HR 351 (above) to state sponsors of terrorism or to countries or firms that use cyber attacks to steal U.S. intellectual property and military technology. The motion also required the gas to be exported in ships and shipping containers that are built in the U.S. and fly under the American flag. A yes vote was to adopt the motion, which, had it prevailed, would have immediately amended the bill. Voting yes: Graham Voting no: Miller SENATE KEYSTONE XL PIPELINE : Voting 62 for and 36 against, the Senate on Jan 29 passed a bill (S 1) to force federal approval of a Keystone XL Pipeline leg reaching more than 900 miles from the Canadian border through Montana and South Dakota to Steele City, Neb. Under the bill, Congress would usurp author ity over the international project from the Department of State and White House. The bill “deems” that environmental and safety hurdles have been cleared and that U.S. permits for construction, operation and maintenance must be issued. This would be the final link in a nearly 4,000-mile Keystone network for shipping tar-sands crude from Hardisty, Alberta, to refineries in Texas and the Midwest and ports on the Texas Gulf Coast. TransCan ada Corp. is the pipeline owner. A yes vote was to pass the bill. It will be reconciled with a similar House-passed measure. President Obama has threatened a veto. Voting no: Nelson Not voting: Rubio CAMPAIGN-FINANCE DISCLO SURES: Voting 44 for and 52 against, the Senate on Jan. 29 defeated an amendment to S 1 (above) that sought to require corporations that make profits of $1 million or more from the Keystone XL Pipeline to publicly disclose their campaign donations aimed at influencing U.S. elections. Under the Supreme Court’s Citizens United ruling of 2010, businesses, unions and inter est groups can make anonymous donations of unlimited sums to advocate the election or defeat of congressional candidates. A yes vote was to adopt the amendment. Voting yes: Nelson Not voting: Rubio PRAIRIE CHICKEN, THREAT ENED SPECIES : Voting 54 for and 44 against, the Senate on Jan. 28 failed to reach 60 votes needed to pass an amendment to S 1 (above) that would remove the lesser prai rie chicken as a threatened species under Endangered Species Act. The bird inhabits areas of Colorado, Kansas, New Mexico, Oklahoma and Texas in declining numbers. Critics say the federal designation crimps farming and other commer cial activities. A yes vote was to end protection of the lesser prairie chicken as a threatened species. Voting no: Nelson Not voting: Rubio ALASKA WILDERNESS DESIG NATION : By a vote of 50 for and 48 against, the Senate on Jan. 28 defeated an amendment to nullify President Obama’s recent desig nation of 12.3 million acres in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge as permanent wilderness. Needing 60 votes for passage, the amendment also sought to negate the admin istration’s recent prohibition of oil and gas drilling in 9.8 million acres of the Beaufort and Chukchi seas off of Alaska. A yes vote was to nullify admin istration decisions to protect fed eral land and seas from oil and gas exploration.

LOCA L & STATE Page B6 | The News Herald | Sunday, February 1, 2015 For starters, Rossmann said she has concerns about the way the request for pro posals document was writ ten. It stated that no county funds would be used on the course. She said the request out lined many requirements for course operators. “It is a costly process to put a proposal together for a company,” she said. “I’m not sure they allowed enough time for companies to pro vide all the information they were requesting.” Rossmann said she also wished officials would go back to the companies that had expressed an interest to find out why they didn’t submit a proposal. Rossmann said the county subsidizes recre ational facilities such as ball fields, and should consider doing the same for a reason ably priced golf course used by many seniors. “Why not allow (a sub sidy) for the golf course rather than for future expan sion” of H.G. Harders Park on the property, she asked. County officials have said an expansion of Harders Park might be one option to consider if Bay Dunes closes. The golf course “is impor tant for exercise,” Rossmann said. “It’s important for the morale of the community. We get together, have fun, develop friends, invite more people in. It’s just a good outlet for the community.” Bill Ronk, a member of the Bay County Parks and Recreation Advisory Board and an avid golfer at Bay Dunes, said he’d like the county to form a special committee with golf course maintenance and operations experts to come up with a recommendation for the course. Ronk doesn’t think it would take $700,000 to bring the course up to speed. “I think the committee can look at a lot of the differ ent options,” he said. “It’s very complicated. There are so many different ways you could subsidize it.” He said a manager could be hired to run the course or the county could run the course. “The big advantage of the county running it is they don’t have to make money; they can break even. Anyone who leases it has to make money or they won’t lease it,” Ronk said.

All open enrollment applications must be completed online. The school district says parents should log on to their Parent Portal accounts, click on the “Forms” tab and “Open Enrollment.” State law requires schools to offer an open enrollment plan for parents to select a public school for their children. Breakfast Point Academy, Patronis Elementary and Tyndall Elementary are closed to open enrollment for the 2015-16 school year because of school capacity limits, according to the school district. Area BRIEF DOLL SHOW from Page B1 “Dolls are interesting. They’re just something unique” vendor Peggy Miceli said. Miceli was selling several Franklin Mint Faberg bridal dolls from her collection. She is scheduled for a lung transplant and said it was time to downsize. “I just never wanted to get rid of the ones I have, but I decided, you know, there comes a time when you have to,” she said. Proceeds from the show’s $3 admission, raffle ticket sales and other fees support a different cause each year. This year the money will go to Rutherford High School’s baseball program. Howard said she expected to donate $500 to the program. Rutherford baseball players were selling the raffle tickets at the show. Doll appraiser Cynthia Orgeron was offering her services for free. Visitors could donate $5 to Rutherford’s baseball team and find out their dolls’ worth, get tips on caring for them and learn about insurance values. Orgeron said that when considering a doll’s worth, she looks at its age, rarity, condition and if it has the original clothes. “All dolls have value. They are worth saving, and especially if the family took time to save them it makes it special. There are sentimental reasons behind it, and that you can’t really put a price on,” she said.

LOCA L & STATE Page B8 | The News Herald | Sunday, February 1, 2015 ORLANDO (AP) — Florida Democratic Party leaders gathered Saturday to begin dissecting a mis erable year and to try to figure out what it can do going forward to win elections. While President Barack Obama and Sen. Bill Nelson have figured out how to win Florida, Democrats have had little success elsewhere since the 1990s. In 2014, Gov. Rick Scott narrowly defeated Republi can-turned-Democrat Charlie Crist. Republicans picked up seats in the state House to earn a super major ity, and while Gwen Graham beat a Republican incumbent to flip a congressional seat, Democratic U.S. Rep. Joe Garcia lost his seat. Party Chairwoman Allison Tant told activists the results were heartbreaking. “We’re going to learn from this loss and find out what we did wrong so that we can improve on it,” she said. “We are the voice for the voice less, for our vulnerable, for our chil dren, for our elderly and we have to continue to raise our voices and take our actions for them.” She and other leaders offered up a few reasons why the party wasn’t successful last year. The biggest one was money. Party executive director Scott Arceneaux said Scott outspent Crist on television by $34 million — roughly the same amount that 2010 Democratic nominee Alex Sink spent on her entire campaign. It also didn’t help that Obama’s approval ratings were low, and that nationally there was a Republican wave. Tant said the party is going over 2014 election data to figure out a strategy for 2016, when Florida will be a key state in the presidential election. There also could be an open U.S. Senate seat if Republi can Marco Rubio decides to run for president. The party is also look ing ahead to 2018, when there will be open seats for governor and all three Cabinet positions. Tant said she is already recruiting candidates for those races. Crist spoke to the group and also pointed at money being a factor in the election, which he lost by 1 per centage point. Like 2010, Scott won without a majority of the votes cast. “We wouldn’t have come that close without you, especially against all that money. It’s crazy,” Crist said. “We have the message, we just need to make sure we get out that vote. That’s the key.” Despite another loss — Demo crats haven’t won a governor’s race since 1994 — Crist told activists not to give up. “We have to be hopeful and we have to lift each other and we cannot be discouraged. We must be deter mined. Determined to persevere. Determined to overcome. Deter mined to do better,” Crist said. “And this is where it starts.” Crist, who served as a Republican governor from 2007 to 2011 and ran for Senate in 2010 as an independent, later said that he will continue to be active in the Democratic Party. “There’s some very important races next year. I want to be helpful in those. There’s always more to do,” he said. “I really do think that the Democratic Party of Florida has a very bright future but we have to remain engaged.” State Democrats review dismal year, look to future


By DUSTIN KENT 747-5065 | @PCNHDustinKent PANAMA CITY — There still are five more to play, but with seven Panhandle Conference games down, Gulf Coast State guides its destiny for the postseason. The Commodores (17-7 overall, 4-3 in the conference) earned a hard-fought 64-58 victory over Pensacola State (15-10, 4-4) on Saturday night to move into sole possession of second place in the league standings. It was the third straight win for the Commodores, all since leading scorer Elliott Cole suffered a broken foot that ended his season. Gulf Coast coach Jay Powell said he couldn’t be more pleased Sports PANAMA CITY NEWS HERALD SUNDAY February 1, 2015 Section C Facebook: Twitter: @NH_Sports Brady the greatest ever in Super Bowl? Not so fast By TIM DAHLBERG AP Sports Columnist His teammates were mostly showered and gone, but Tom Brady was having trouble even bringing himself to move. He sat in front of his locker in Indianapolis, pulling on a pair of boots with a pained look seemingly etched on his face. Brady’s Super Bowl had ended badly once again, and he was trying to make sense of it all. In a few minutes he would walk down a hallway and tell the media why he had the ball in his hand to win the game with 57 seconds left and couldn’t deliver the long touchdown drive every New England fan was expecting three years ago against the New York Giants. “It always comes down to one or two plays,” Brady said then. “If you make them you’re celebrating. If you don’t, you don’t sleep for a week.” Celebrating or sleepless, Brady knows both well. The first three times he took the Patriots to the Super Bowl he came away with three championship rings. That there were more Super Bowls to come was a given. Bill Belichick was building a dynasty behind Brady, and the quarterback was just beginning to feel comfortable as a superstar at the age of 27. But Brady has lost the last two, and the opposing quarterback was the MVP in both of them. Eli Manning outplayed Brady not once but twice, the first time in the very stadium where the Patriots will play the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday. There hasn’t been another Super Bowl championship in a decade now. And there’s a real chance that should the Patriots fall again, losing three straight Super Bowls might define Brady’s eventual legacy nearly as much as winning the first three. Greatest quarterback of his era, sure. Brady has won while fighting injuries, and won while his many receivers always seemed to be going through a revolving door in New England. Just to get to six Super Bowls is a staggering accomplishment no quarterback had ever achieved before Brady and the Patriots beat Indianapolis to return to the big game once again. And should the Patriots beat the Seahawks on Sunday, Brady would join Joe Montana and Terry Bradshaw, two names long enshrined as greats in Canton, as the only quarterbacks to win four rings. But where do you put a quarterback with a .500 Super Bowl record in historical context? What do you say about one who won his first three, and lost his next three? You say he’s no Bradshaw, who won all four of his Super Bowl appearances for the Pittsburgh Steelers. Certainly not Montana, who won four in 12 full seasons for San Francisco and COMMENTARY SEE DAHLBERG | C7 AUSTRALIAN OPEN WOMEN’S SINGLES FINAL MELBOURNE, Australia (AP) — Serena Williams stuck out a fist in mock triumph and mouthed “C’mon,” careful not to push her point too far. The 33-year-old Williams was closing in on her 19th Grand Slam singles title, her 16th straight win over Maria Sharapova and her sixth Austra lian Open championship when she was docked a point by the chair umpire for hindrance — for yelling in celebration too early when she thought she’d hit a service winner. She didn’t let that, or another early celebra tion on match point, or a hacking cough that made her sick, become distractions. Instead, Williams maintained her compo sure to beat Sharapova 6-3, 7-6 (5) on Saturday night to continue her 100 percent record in finals at Melbourne Park and move closer to Steffi Graf’s record of 22 major titles in the Open era.Serena wins 19th G rand Slam title Serena Williams celebrates after defeating Maria Sharapova.

They trail idle Tal lahassee (4-3) by just a game for the third state tournament berth allotted the conference. “Obviously we had to have this one,” Gulf Coast coach Roonie Scovel said. “If we had lost this one, we wouldn’t be mathematically elimi nated, but realistically we would’ve been out of it, so it’s good we were able to take care of business at home.” The Lady Pirates, who fell to 8-16 overall and 0-8, scored the first four points of the game and trailed by just a point after Tyisha Moore’s putback made it 10-9. Gulf Coast started to get separa tion with an 8-0 run featuring a pair of buckets by King followed by a driving basket and a free-throw line jumper by Bri Williams to go up 18-9. Pensacola got back to within four after a putback by Alaysia Mitchell late in the half, but Gulf Coast fin ished with six straight points. A long two-point jumper by Taylor Shaw, a bucket inside by King and a putback by Gibson gave the Lady Commo dores a 26-16 edge at the break. The second half was all Gulf Coast as Scovel unleashed a rarely used 1-2-2 full-court press that caused the struggling Lady Pirates all sorts of problems. After a basket by Gibson to start the half, the press forced a steal that led to a bucket by Tianah Alvarado to push the lead to 30-16. Two more buckets by Gibson increased the margin to 18, with a driving bucket by Shaw and a bas ket by Rochelle Vasquez following another Pensacola turnover giving the Lady Commodores a 40-18 lead with 15:49 to play. Gibson continued to torch the Lady Pirates as the second half unfolded. She followed her own miss to make it 44-23, then hit two free throws and added another offensive WOMEN GULF COAST 76, PENSACOLA 49 MEN GULF COAST 64, PENSACOLA 58 GC women still in the hunt Photos by HEATHER LEIPHART | The News Herald Kobe Goosby powers between a pair of Pensacola players to snare a rebound in the first half Saturday night.

The Hawks led by 21 in the first half but the 76ers came back to take their first lead at 83-81 on a jam by Nerlens Noel with less than 3 minutes remaining. Horford scored to pull the Hawks even, and Den nis Schroeder’s 3-pointer with 1:35 left gave Atlanta an 86-83 advantage. Follow ing a miss by Philadelphia’s K.J.

DeMarcus Cousins earned his 28th double-double. Paquette strikes again as Lightning defeat Jackets Laird holds lead at Phoenix Open SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (AP) — For all his birdies Saturday, two big pars kept Martin Laird in control at the Phoenix Open. Laird made 10-footers for par on the 16th and 18th holes and had a 3-under 68, giving him a three-shot lead going into the final round over a new pair of the next generation. Hideki Matsuyama, the 22-year-old from Japan who already has seven worldwide victories, roared into con tention with birdies on his last four holes for an 8-under 63, the low round of the tournament. Brooks Koepka, a 24-year-old who traveled the world to get back home to America, finally found some fairways and used his power to shoot 64. They were tied for second with Zach Johnson, who had a 67. Laird, a 32-year-old Scot who has lived in Scottsdale the last 14 years, was at 13-under 200 as he goes for his fourth PGA Tour victory. Among the 15 players within five shots of the lead was Francesco Moli nari of Italy, who made a hole-in-one before more than 15,000 rowdy fans on the par-3 16th hole. It was the first ace in the notorious arena on Satur day — the biggest day at the Phoenix Open — since Tiger Woods in 1997. Perhaps the biggest surprise was Jon Rahm of Spain, a junior at Ari zona State playing this week on a sponsor’s exemption. He got the gal lery on his side early, especially by wearing a Sun Devils jersey when he teed off on the 16th, and shot 66. LPGA: Ko reaches No. 1 ranking, Choi wins Coates Golf Classic OCALA — With a notable double prize not only within reach, but practically in her grip, teen star Lydia Ko had to settle for half of the spoils. Though the 17-year-old New Zealander blew a late lead in the LPGA Tour’s seasonopening Coates Golf Classic to finish a shot behind Na Yeon Choi, she became the young est player of either gender to reach No. 1 in the world ranking. Ko, four strokes ahead on the front nine, double-bogeyed the 17th hole during a wild closing stretch, but still eclipsed Tiger Woods’ mark as the youngest to reach the game’s apex. Woods was 21 years, 5 months, 16 days when he reached the top in 1997. Ko did it at 17 years, 9 months, 7 days. McIlroy up 4 shots at Dubai DUBAI, United Arab Emirates — Rory McIlroy shot a 6-under 66 to extend his lead to four strokes with a round left in the Dubai Desert Classic on Saturday. The top-ranked McIlroy, a stroke ahead after the second round, had a 20-under 196 total on Emirates Golf Club’s Majlis Course. Denmark’s Morten Orum Madsen was sec ond after a 66, and England’s Lee Westwood was third at 14 under after a 69.

SPORT S Sunday, February 1, 2015 | The News Herald | Page C3 By PAT McCANN 747-5068 | Twitter: @patmccann Rutherford is streaking into this week’s District 1-5A boys basketball tournament at Gulf Breeze, but then again, that term exemplifies the excellence of the program during the past six seasons. Not only has Rutherford, 21-3, won 15 consecutive games entering its semifinal on Friday, the Rams have compiled five straight 20-win seasons, reached the region championship game in four of the past five years, and if they can advance to the Final Four it would be their third in six years. Rutherford has earned the No. 1 seed, and like second-seeded Bay gets a bye into the semis. The tournament begins with Arnold vs. Mosley and Choctawhatchee vs. Gulf Breeze on Tuesday. Those survivors move on to meet the Tornadoes and Rams. In other district tournaments, North Bay Haven will host three-school 1-3A and Bozeman is the site of the 4-1A event. Ross thinks Rutherford has a legitimate shot at making another postseason run, but stressed that it all starts with a must-win on Friday night. If the Rams can net their fifth consecutive district title, that brings perks as well. “We always set little goals for ourselves, and you want to play at least the first (regional) game in your own building,” Ross said. “We’ve been blessed in that we’ve won regional championships both at home and on the road, but we’re something like 2-4 in regional finals. If you win the district you’re guaranteed to host.” With teams in the bottom part of the regional bracket this year also hosting a semifinal, that would guarantee the Rams at least two home games if they can claim a district title and open the region with a victory. Ross said that if Rutherford can win its district semifinal on Friday against the Gulf Breeze-Choctawhatchee survivor, it also would mean that the district championship would be held at Rutherford on Saturday, instead of in Gulf Breeze. That would be necessitated because of two Bay County teams in the championship game. The other part of the district draw will be won by either Arnold, which has a fourgame win streak, Mosley or Bay, with Arnold and Mosley meeting Tuesday for the right to advance against Bay in the semifinals. Should Rutherford make it an all-county district final, it would host because it is the top seed. Marianna is seeded fourth in four-school 1-4A, which opens Friday at West Florida. The Bulldogs encounter topseeded Pensacola Catholic in their opener. North Bay Haven hosts the three-school 1-3A district tournament. The Buccaneers, 17-8, split with both Friday night opponent Rocky Bayou and topseeded Pensacola Christian during the regular season. Pensacola Christian received a bye into Saturday’s final because it swept Rocky Bayou. NBH coach Erin Williams doesn’t see any reason his team can’t deliver a district crown and host a region quarterfinal the following week. “I’m sure we’ll play really good,” Williams said. “The boys have been working hard for this goal all year and have been playing really good ball the past couple weeks.” Area schools are involved in four Class 1A district tournaments, Bozeman hosting 4-1A that begins on Tuesday. Bozeman coach Mike Memmen said that topseeded West Gadsden is a heavy favorite to win that district. “Anybody seeded 2 through 6 has a shot, they’re all about equal,” Memmen said. “But West Gadsden is the clear favorite. They’re athletic, long and pressure throughout.” Bozeman hosts Liberty County 7 p.m. Tuesday in the first round, but would have to meet West Gadsden 7 p.m. Friday if it advances. Memmen said the teams on the other side of the bracket — South Walton, Franklin County and Port St. Joe — all have a legitimate shot at reaching the regional round. Memmen said should Boz eman be eliminated before the finals, he is hopeful that the Bucks still will host the championship, even if the opponents are from outside of Bay County. Paxton (1-1A), Graceville (2-1A) and Chipley (3-1A) are the top seeds in other Class 1A districts featuring area schools.

The University of Virginia transfer made a sterling debut for the Commodores by striking out five and walking four in a 10-0 runrule win at Bill Frazier Field. “His stuff was good,” Commo dores coach Mike Kandler said. “He didn’t command the ball as well as he is capable, but only two balls were hit on the barrel. “He did a masterful job and we made some good plays behind him. We got off the deck (after stumbling Friday night), hit well, Adam pitched great and we played solid defense. Bowen McGuffin was 2 for 3 with an inside-the-park home run and had four runs batted in. Nick Nelson continued his torrid hitting going 3 for 3 with a triple and RBI, Woody Edwards had two hits and Max Bartlett had a single and dou ble in his first game of the season. Gulf Coast 7, Darton 2 Gulf Coast scored six runs in the first inning and Austin Howze pitched six strong innings. Trevor Davis hit a three-run homer in the first inning, his second of the season and fourth extra-base hit. Nelson and Jon Bennett doubled and Wesley Roberson singled as the Commodores gave Howze a nice cushion. He didn’t need it, allowing only two hits and striking out three while walking one. Nelson relieved and couldn’t retire any of the three batters he faced and Austin Bizzle finished on the mound. “We had good at-bats all night, but couldn’t find many holes,” Kandler said. “I thought we swung the bats really well for an opening weekend.” Edwards had three hits and Bartlett had a single and double for the second straight game. Nelson went 1 for 3, but finished his first weekend series 9-14 with five RBIs. The Commodores, 3-1, are idle until hosting St. Johns River on Thursday. Friday Gordon 8, Gulf Coast 6 The Commodores scored two insur ance runs in the sixth inning to go up by three, but surrendered five runs in the top of the seventh inning to suffer their first defeat of 2015. Freshmen relievers Ben Wilford and Jake Thomas were unable to hold off the Highlanders from Barnesville, Ga., and a key outfield error aided Gordon’s rally. “What can you say, the wheels came off the cart,” Kandler said. Starting pitcher West Covington went four innings yielding three runs, none of them earned as the Commodores made five errors in the game. Covington gave up three hits and a walk against four strikeouts. Bennett was 3 for 3 with an RBI for Gulf Coast. Nelson had a triple, two sin gles and an RBI and Davis a double, triple and RBI. Gordon 9, Tallahassee 8 Tallahassee took an 8-7 lead to the bottom of the seventh, but the Highland ers (3-1) plated two runs against Matt Schaeffer to pick up the walk-off victory. It was Gordon’s second seventh-inning rally in two days. Darton 8, Tallahassee 1 Thomas Nicoll took the loss against Darton State as the Eagles fell to 1-3. Dar ton, 1-3, won its first game of the season as the teams from Georgia and Florida split eight games over the weekend. Gulf Coast: Bleday no-hits Gordon Staff reports FORT WALTON BEACH — The Choctawhatchee girls could probably have guessed the halftime speech coming their way after they had managed just 11 points in the first half of Saturday night’s District 1-5A champion ship with Mosley. Of course, the Indians had only allowed 11, but coach Don Brown would still preach defense. He did, and per usual it worked. After a lackluster first half in which only Nadia Fingall scored for Choc tawhatchee, the Indians surged for a 17-point third quarter in which four players scored. The result was a 36-22 win over the Dolphins for a fourth straight district title. “Defense and transi tion,” said Fingall, who finished with a game-high 19 points. “That was a big part of what we did. We were tired, but we were able to get down the court quick enough.” Fingall and Tasharah Sanders hauled in nine and 10 rebounds, and combined for nine blocks to ignite the Indians’ 17-2 run in the third quarter. The Indians hounded Mosley into 2-22 shoot ing from long range, and overall the Dolphins shot only 22 percent from the floor. “There have been a couple times over the year when we have been slow and picked it up toward the end,” Brown said. “We just didn’t want them hanging around and thinking they had a chance at beating us. “We went into half time, made a few adjust ments, came back out, played with more inten sity and it paid off and it showed. We played well the second half.” Mosley, 22-4, was held to its lowest scor ing output of the season. Choctawhatchee’s thirdquarter dominance was too much to overcome, but otherwise the Dol phins held a combined 20-19 edge in the other three quarters. Kiana Yangson led Mosley with eight points and two rebounds. J’nyiah Daniels had six points, five rebounds and four assists. Mosley will travel on Thursday to play the Dis trict 2-5A champion, while Choctawhatchee hosts the 2-5A runner-up. In Class 1A, Port St. Joe won the District 4-1A title by defeating South Walton 35-28. Ponce de Leon defeated Paxton 40-28 in 1-1A by holding the Bobcats to seven points in the first half and 16 percent shooting for the game. Mosley falls in 1-5A final PREP ROUNDUP rebound for two points. Gibson’s strong drive to the hoop made it 50-29 with 11:05 remaining. Another two inside and a short banker by Gibson was followed by consecutive baskets by King and a 3-pointer from Mia Cooper to give GC its biggest lead at 69-40 with 5:40 left. Scovel said she believed going to the press injected her team with some energy early in the second half. The result was a more aggressive Lady Commodores team at both ends. “Our defense was good and we played hard (in the first half), but we didn’t make shots and our shot selection wasn’t great,” Scovel said. “We were a lot more composed in the second half. We pounded the ball inside and Chelsey Gibson and Kristina King did a good job of finishing down low and we finally got a few outside shots to go down.” Vasquez added 10 points for Gulf Coast, with Williams scoring six. Lee Williams led Pensacola with 10 points, followed by Moore with nine, Gabrielle Figgers with eight and Mitchell with seven. After a 2-0 home stand, the Lady Com modores will be back on the road Wednes day when they travel to Niceville to face No. 4 Northwest Florida State. Pensacola State will have a week to get ready for its game Saturday against Chipola in Marianna. PENSACOLA (49) Figgers 2 2-2 8, Suarez 2 0-0 4, M. Williams 1 1-2 3, L.

WOMEN from Page C1 with how his team has com peted over the past three games. “I’m glad after round one (of league play) we’ve been able to use round two in a real positive way to get back into the playoff race,” Powell said. “Now we’ve got a chance on Wednesday in Niceville (against Northwest Florida State) to get ahead in the race, instead of worrying about trying to catch up. I’m real proud of how the men have responded so far.” Jonathan Wade scored 17 points to lead the Commo dores with Quavius Copeland adding 14. Rozelle Nix led Pensacola with 13 points. Gulf Coast led most of the game, but the Pirates, as they’ve traditionally done under coach Pete Pena, made the home team fight to the end to secure the victory. The Commodores were up 36-27 at halftime and led by nine on two more occa sions in the second half before Pensacola began drawing closer. A corner 3-pointer from DeMario Beck made it 4334 with 13:10 to play and a three-point play by Beck made it 48-39 with 10:38 remaining. Pensacola got back to within five on a layup by KeKe Williamson with 8:34 to play, and then twice more on baskets by Nix and Shamar Johnson, the latter with 3:55 on the clock. But Davaris McGowens provided a big bucket on a face-up jumper to make it 57-50, then came up with a spectacular play moments later. He stole a Pirates’ pass and went behind his back ahead to Copeland for a layup to make it 59-51. Kevin Baker answered immediately with a 3-pointer to cut the lead back to five with 40.3 seconds left, but Baker missed a golden opportunity to make it a onepossession game shortly thereafter. Copeland made one of two free throws for a 60-54 edge with 37.7 seconds left. Baker then got a clean look for a 3-pointer from the right wing on the ensuing Pen sacola possession, but the shot rimmed out. Free throws by Cobe Goosby and Wade followed by a driving layup by Wil liamson left the score 62-56 with 19.9 seconds left, and Baker again missed a three that could’ve cut the margin in half. Copeland hit two free throws with 9.1 seconds to play to push the lead back to eight and seal the win. “It was a hard-fought game. Pensacola is a good team, everyone knows that,” Powell said. “We really had to bear down. You know you’re probably not going to pull away from them, so you have to be able to grind it out and get good stops. Fortunately we were able to get enough defensive stops to hang on.” Beck added nine points for GC, with Anton Waters adding eight and Goosby seven. Shamar Johnson had 10 for Pensacola, Rutherford grad Williamson nine and Baker seven. The Commodores play at No. 1 Northwest Florida State on Wednesday, while the Pirates are at Chipola on Saturday.

The class of 2015, announced a day before the Super Bowl, also includes a pair of contributors, Bill Polian and Ron Wolf, along with senior selection Mick Tingelhoff. Five nominees were eliminated in the final vote: Tony Dungy, Kevin Greene, Marvin Harrison, Orlando Pace and Kurt Warner. Earlier Saturday, the selection committee reduced the list of 15 modern-day finalists by cutting Morten Andersen, Terrell Davis, John Lynch and coaches Don Coryell and Jimmy Johnson. A candidate needs 80 percent of the vote from 46 media members to get in. The induction ceremony is in August at Canton, Ohio. Seau, elected posthumously, was the only first-time eligible candidate to get in this year. He committed suicide at age 43 in 2012, and researchers who studied his brain said it showed signs of chronic traumatic encephalopathy, a disease connected to repeated head injuries, including concussions. His death, less than 2 years after the end of his playing career, resonated among players in the league, raising worry about the physical and emotional toll the sport takes. A field-covering, hard-hitting linebacker, the charismatic Seau played in the NFL for 20 seasons, the first 13 with the San Diego Chargers. Cubs legend Ernie Banks remembered CHICAGO — Fans and friends paid tribute to legendary Chicago Cubs slugger Ernie Banks on Saturday, recalling how he helped break baseball’s color barrier during a Hall of Fame career in which he won over teammates and an entire city with the unwavering optimism he brought to the game and life. At a memorial service in a Chicago church, the buoyant man known as “Mr. Cub” was remembered for his character as much as his accomplishments on the ballfield, including his 512 career home runs. Speaker after speaker recalled Banks’ unflagging spirit and good cheer — he enthusiastically predicted each spring that his team would win the pennant — as well as his humility and care for others. The Rev. Jesse Jackson said Banks “disarmed adversaries with optimism” and “branded goodwill.” Mayor Rahm Emanuel said Banks was a “humble hero” who taught younger generations “how to play the game of life.” Fellow Hall of Famer Fergie Jenkins said the unassuming, joyful Banks strove to be a good teammate, not a star. Billy Williams, another Hall of Famer, recalled animated conversations that he and Banks would have while driving to Wrigley Field on game days. American Pharoah among Crown nominees LOUISVILLE, Ky. — American Pharoah, last year’s champion 2-year-old male, and Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Fillies winner Take Charge Brandi lead the list of 429 early nominees for the Triple Crown series for 3-year-olds. The total number of horses is 15 more than last year’s total of 414 that were made eligible for the Kentucky Derby, Preakness and Belmont stakes during the early nomination phase. Trainer Todd Pletcher has 34 horses nominated, down from last year’s total of 41. The 47-year-old trainer has three Triple Crown victories. His list of hopefuls is led by Carpe Diem, Competitive Edge and Daredevil. Chad Brown was second with 24 nominees, followed by Hall of Famer Jerry Hollendorfer with 16. Trainer Bob Baffert has 15 nominations. Ohio State lowers ticket price for 2 games COLUMBUS, Ohio — Ohio State is lowering the football ticket price for two non-conference games next season, but tickets for games against Penn State and Michigan State will be more than $100. The school says tickets for games against Hawaii and Western Michigan will drop from $79 to $65. Tickets for the Penn State game will be $125 and the price for the Michigan State tickets will be $150. The three other homes games against Northern Illinois, Maryland and Minnesota will be priced at $79. Ohio State began charging a premium for marque games in 2013, but this is the first time the university has cut prices under its new ticketing plan. Ohio State led the nation in attendance last year, averaging 106,000 fans.

Virginia (19-1, 7-1) started the second half with a 16-4 burst and led by 11 with just under 11 min utes to play before some ill-advised shots, turnovers and Duke’s blistering shooting turned the tables.

(AP) — Karl-Anthony Towns and No. 1 Kentucky shot a season-best 59 percent to stay unbeaten, topping Ala bama 70-55 Saturday night and completing a season sweep. Two weeks after romp ing 70-48 in Tuscaloosa, the Wildcats (21-0, 8-0 South eastern Conference) made 24 of 41 from the field to sur pass their previous best of 58 percent against Boston University in November. Kentucky also com mitted just five turnovers while forcing Alabama (13-8, 3-5) into 13 mistakes that resulted in 20 points. Towns scored 12 points in the first half to put Ken tucky ahead. Willie Cau ley-Stein snapped out of a mini-slump with 12 points and four rebounds, Devin Booker added 11 points with three 3-pointers and Aaron Harrison had 10.

Tennessee 71, Auburn 63 KNOXVILLE, Tenn. — Armani Moore scored a careerhigh 19 points and matched a career high with 13 rebounds as Tennessee defeated Auburn to spoil Tigers coach Bruce Pearl’s return to Thompson-Boling Arena. This marked the first time Pearl had faced Tennessee since returning to coaching this season. Pearl led Tennessee to NCAA tournament appearances in each of his six seasons with the Volun teers before getting fired amid an NCAA investigation in 2011. The crowd chanted “Bruce” as Pearl walked onto the court with a blue blazer, not the orange one he wore for key games during his Ten nessee career. The chant contin ued as he was introduced before the game and when he walked off the court afterward. Mississippi State 73, LSU 67 STARKVILLE, Miss. — Fred Thomas scored 18 points and Mis sissippi State made 13 of 14 free throws down the stretch, as the Bulldogs beat LSU.

Mississippi 67, Missouri 47 COLUMBIA, Mo. — Ste fan Moody scored 23 points and Martavious Newby grabbed nine rebounds to lead Mississippi past Missouri. Ole Miss (14-7, 5-3 SEC) used runs of 8-0 and 7-0 in the opening 20 minutes to build a 37-25 lead at the break, and led by at least nine points throughout the closing half. Johnathan Williams III scored 14 points for Missouri (7-14, 1-7), which lost its seventh consecu tive game for the first time since 1993. Texas A&M 69, Vanderbilt 58 COLLEGE STATION, Texas — Jalen Jones scored 15 points, Alex Caruso added 14 points with 10 assists, and Texas A&M extended its winning streak to six games with a win over Vanderbilt.

No. 22 Indiana 72, Rutgers 64 BLOOMINGTON, Ind. — James Blackmon Jr. scored 20 points and Nick Zeisloft made two 3-pointers in a late 8-0 run to send No. 22 Indiana past Rutgers.

Illinois 60, Penn State 58 CHAMPAIGN, Ill. — Illi nois forward Malcolm Hill scored 27 points including two on a layup with four seconds left in the game to deliver a win over Penn State. The win was relief for an Illini team (14-8, 4-5) already depleted by injury that got more bad news just before game time. Coach John Groce suspended two of those injured players, Rayvonte Rice and Aaron Cosby, indefinitely. Minnesota 60, Nebraska 42 MINNEAPOLIS — Mo Walker led Minnesota with 19 points and eight rebounds and Andre Hollins added 12 points, helping the Gophers avenge a recent loss to Nebraska with a victory over the sputtering Huskers. Hollins had six assists and five rebounds, too, and the Gophers (14-9, 3-7) bounced back from their latest of six Big Ten losses by five points or fewer. One of those was a 52-49 decision at Nebraska 11 days ago, when Walker had a woeful four points, three turnovers and four fouls. Purdue 68, Northwestern 60 EVANSTON, Ill. — AJ Hammons scored 16 points and grabbed nine rebounds and Pur due beat Northwestern.

Dorian Finney-Smith added 16 points, nine rebounds and four assists for the Gators (12-9, 5-3 Southeastern Conference), who won their second straight after a three-game losing streak and got another much-needed resume-booster for the NCAA tournament. Frazier finished with six points on 2-for-9 shooting, including 0-for-5 from 3point line. But his play and poise in the final seconds proved to be the difference. Florida had the ball with 11.5 seconds remaining, but Chris Chiozza missed a shot. Frazier got the offensive rebound and was fouled by Alandise Harris. He made both. The Razorbacks (16-5, 5-3) had one final chance, but turned the ball over on the in-bound pass. The loss snapped Arkansas’ threegame winning streak and was the team’s 10th consec utive loss in Gainesville. Bobby Portis led Arkan sas with 21 points and 10 rebounds. Portis was a one-man show down the stretch, scor ing 10 consecutive points and helping Arkansas over come a nine-point deficit. Harris missed the sec ond of two free throws that would have tied the game at 55, but Anton Beard got the loose ball and banked in a shot from just inside the free throw line. Gators beat Hogs on late free throws


Page C6 | The News Herald | Sunday, February 1, 2015 Seahawks try to be first team to repeat in 10 years PHOENIX (AP) — A year ago, Pete Car roll stood at a podium in a New York City hotel, less than 12 hours after his Seattle Seahawks beat the Denver Broncos in the Super Bowl. He spoke about what would happen next. “The first meeting that we’ll have,” Car roll said, “will be tomorrow.” Sounded a bit over the top, even from the ever-enthusiastic coach. A moment later, he continued the theme, insisting: “We really have an eye on what’s coming, and we don’t dwell on what just happened. We’ll take this in stride.” Turns out he knew what he was talking about. Fast forward to today, when Car roll’s Seahawks will face Bill Belichick’s New England Patriots in the Super Bowl with a chance to do something that, for many reasons, was thought to be too tall a task in today’s NFL: win a second con secutive championship. “It’s tough to win it once. That’s the hard part. Winning twice doesn’t happen (anymore),” said Patriots quarterback Tom Brady, whose team went back-toback 10 years ago, making for the longest drought without a repeat champion in the nearly half-century of Super Bowls. “The NFL is built for parity — the way the draft is set up, the way the schedule plays out, the hard salary cap. All those things trying to level the playing field,” Brady said. “It’s hard to get here. It’s tough to win it. It’s certainly tough to win it two times in a row.” It has happened only eight times in league history but used to be a semi-regu lar occurrence. Indeed, the first two Super Bowls — well, it wasn’t called that back then — were both won by the Green Bay Packers. Then the Miami Dolphins won con secutive trophies five years later, followed by the Pittsburgh Steelers (who did it twice), the San Francisco 49ers, the Dallas Cowboys, the Broncos and the Patriots. “The hardest thing in terms of repeat ing is not the focus of repeating,” said Seattle’s Russell Wilson, who can become the first starting quarterback to win a pair of Super Bowls within his first three sea sons. “It’s: How do you get to the Super Bowl in general?” There are all the ways mentioned by Brady that the NFL legislates competitiveness. And there are other factors. Reigning Super Bowl champions have a shorter offseason. Successful teams lose players and assistant coaches (Seattle’s top receiver, Golden Tate, left as a free agent, as did defensive lineman Red Bryant, for exam ple). Champions often are filled with veter ans who might feel satisfied. Last season’s Seahawks, though, had the fourth-youngest roster for a Super Bowl winner, with an average age of 26 years, 175 days, according to STATS. The Steelers who won the 1975 Super Bowl were the youngest champions, and they followed that up by earning rings again a year later. Carroll: Chancellor ‘looked pretty good’ TEMPE, Ariz. — Seahawks strong safety Kam Chancellor “looked pretty good” on Saturday according to coach Pete Carroll as Seattle went through its final preparations. Chancellor left practice a day earlier with his left knee wrapped after falling on the second-to-last play. He arrived for Saturday’s walkthrough without a limp and looked comfortable dur ing the 47-minute session inside Arizona State’s practice bubble, according to a pool report. Carroll said: “We will make sure we test him in pregame, but he remarkably looked great today, and so that’s all we have to go on.” SUPER BOWL XLIX

The rut is finally in both here and in south Alabama. One man told me he killed a buck with his bow last week and had to wash his hands three times to get the stink off where he had touched the deer on its hind legs. He said it was as greasy as an otter’s belly. On a certain deer preserve near Paxton, more deer have been killed in one week than since the season opened. It’s as if all the bucks have suddenly gone crazy. The Dog Doctor gave up on deer hunting a year ago and was on the verge of giving it up this year until he killed two bucks in as many weeks. The thought process between Alabama and Florida is as different as day and night when it comes to deer populations and how to control them. Years ago Florida was in its infancy when it came to managing a stronger deer population. I have a hunting license from the 1950s, and it tells how many squirrels and rabbits could be killed; along with a new animal that was added to the list — deer. It seems they knew more about how to control deer herds 60 years ago than they do now. In the 1950s, two bucks was the maximum a hunter could kill in a season. Today it’s two bucks a day. Of course no one I know is able to kill two deer a day, but I know plenty of hunters that kill more than 10 total. In Alabama, it used to be the same way until it decided to try something new and went to three bucks a year. You could hear the moaning and groaning all the way to Alaska. Hunters said they couldn’t live with just three bucks a year and it wasn’t worth buying a license. Alabama threw in a sweetener of letting hunters kill two does a day. The state figured that would quiet the uproar until the hunters got used to the new limits. The new limits caused several changes to the deer herd, some good and some bad. The good was the larger size of deer that were now being killed. The bad was that herds were getting smaller in certain places where the hunters were taking advantage of the two-a-day doe limits. The Alabama hunter who told me last week in south Alabama they were killing deer like rabbits has two sons who both maxed out on bucks during the past two weeks. After hunting for two months and not seeing anything, it was as if someone left the gate open. Everywhere they look they are seeing bucks chasing does. It doesn’t seem like anyone really can put their finger on the exact cause of when the rut comes in either in Florida or Alabama. In Georgia, along the Chattahoochee River the rut comes in on the eastern or Georgia side of the river weeks away than it does on the Alabama side. Why would a body of water separate a normal breeding process by weeks? In our area the rut has started and will continue until the end of February. Looking back at most of the deer I have killed, it seems around Feb. 7 until the end of black-powder season bucks are in rut. I once watched two bucks chasing a doe during turkey season. Hunters in Alabama had to stand by after the end of January and watch as Florida allowed hunting through the month of February. They finally raised enough resistance that Alabama gave in and is going to allow 10 extra days this year so they can hunt the rut. Ten days isn’t a lot, but it is 10 days those hunters didn’t have last year. This is experimental and doesn’t cover the entire state of Alabama. I know hunters who spend thousands of dollars to hunt in Alabama, and this should help pay for the groceries those 10 extra days.

Outdoor Life Scott Lindsey Outdoor Writer captscottlindsey The rut is in and deer sightings are plentiful ANNOUNCEMENTS might have won at least one more if not for injury. While Bradshaw was helped by a dominant defense, Montana won in blowouts and last-minute rallies. His quarterback rating of 127.8 is the best ever in the Super Bowl, while Brady barely cracks the top 10 at 93.8. Here’s a stat that even tops that: In four Super Bowls, on the biggest stages of his life, Montana never threw an interception. Most importantly, Montana didn’t need three shots to win a fourth title. He won every time he took the field in a Super Bowl. Brady was asked several times and in several different ways this week about playing in the Super Bowl six times and what he thinks his eventual legacy will be. He didn’t bite, refusing to rank himself while talking in generalities about how great it is to be playing in his sixth. “It’s hard to think about those things,” Brady said in response to one question. “Like I said, I’ve just been fortunate to be on some great teams. Those guys are unbelievable players, they were so great for this league. They were great teams. I was the biggest 49er fan growing up and to watch Joe and Steve Young — who were my two idols — who were just great for the game and great for the sport.” Brady has been great for the sport, too. He’s the All-American quarterback with the supermodel wife who seems to lead the perfect life. He doesn’t get into trouble off the field, and he usually delivers on it, like he did this season when his irritation with his team’s play quickly turned around a season seemingly headed nowhere. Still it will be hard to call him the greatest ever, even with four Super Bowl wins. Three losses, and you can’t even put him in the conversation. Tim Dahlberg is a national sports columnist for The Associated Press. Write to him at or D AHLBERG from Page C1 “I got too excited and I hit a great serve ... I didn’t expect her to get it back,” Williams explained of the hindrance call in the seventh game of the second set. “I said, ‘C’mon’, a little too soon. I guess there’s a rule that you can’t do it. So I’m fine with it. I moved on very fast to the next point; just tried to stay as focused as I could.” The muted fist pump, she said, was just for fun. “I’m like, ‘C’mon.’ It just goes to show you I have more fun on the court. I would have never done that three years ago, four years ago,” said Williams, who has let similar calls upset her in the past. “So I just kind of made a little sarcasm after that.” On her third match point, she let her racket go before hearing a let call to what she thought was an ace. “I thought, ‘Wow this is it, I did it,’ only to hear let. I was like, ‘OK Serena!’” she said. So she fell back on her biggest weapon, firing another ace — her 15th of the set and 18th of the match. This time, after checking it was official, she bounced around like a little child and the celebra tion was real. “I’m so honored to be here and to hold this 19th trophy,” Williams said. “I didn’t think it would happen this fast, to be honest, but it feels really good.” Williams, at 33 years and 127 days, became the oldest winner of the Australian women’s title in the Open era and moved into outright second place on the list of major winners in the Open era, moving clear of Chris Evert and Martina Navratilova on 18. No. 20 is her next objective, and her next chance is at the French Open. “When I think about Paris, I don’t think about 20. I just think about winning there,” said Wil liams, who didn’t reach a quar terfinal in a Grand Slam between her wins at the 2013 and 2014 U.S. Opens. Still affected by a recent cold, Williams controlled the first set around a rain delay when play was stopped for 13 minutes during the sixth game for the roof on Rod Laver Arena to be closed. Williams came back on court momentarily, but returned to the locker room. “I had a really bad cough, I ended up throwing up,” Williams said. “I think in a way that just helped me — I felt better after that.” She returned to court and fired an ace to start a run of six straight points to take the set away from Sharapova. Williams won the first six points of the second set, too, before Sharapova started hitting out.

AUSSIE from page C1 COOPERSTOWN, N.Y. (AP) — Craig Biggio was “kind of speechless” after completing his pre-induc tion tour of the Baseball Hall of Fame. “This is crazy!” Biggio said Friday, sitting in the Plaque Gallery of the hall. “I’m kind of speechless. It’s an overwhelming feeling, incredible feeling. I don’t know what to say right now.” That’s understandable, given it’s been less than a month since he was elected to the Hall of Fame. Per haps it all hasn’t quite sunk in yet. Biggio was elected Jan. 6, joining Randy Johnson, Pedro Martinez and John Smoltz, who made the 75 percent threshold by big margins on their first tries to become the first trio of pitchers voted in together by baseball writers. Biggio received 82.7 percent of the votes, mak ing it on his third attempt after falling two votes shy last year. The wait hardly mattered. “We’re in,” said Biggio, glancing at his smiling wife Patty. “We’re honored. Last year, hey, we came really close. Hopefully, this year was going to be the year and then it was. I never looked at it as waiting three years. We’re just honored and humbled that we’re in.” The seven-time All-Star, who played catcher, sec ond base and the outfield, retired in 2007 with 3,060 hits, and his 668 doubles are the major league high for a right-handed batter. He also was hit by pitches 285 times, second all-time by just two to Hughie Jen nings. He finished his career with 291 homers, 1,175 RBIs, 1,161 walks, 414 stolen bases and 1,844 runs. Biggio also is the only player in major league his tory with 600 doubles, 250 homers, 3,000 hits and 400 steals. He takes pride in play ing his entire career with one organization — the Houston Astros. He com peted longer than any other player in franchise history, donning the uniform for 20 seasons. He’ll be the first player in franchise history to be inducted when he formally enters the Hall of Fame on July 26. “It means a lot to me,” he said of the Astros cap on his plaque. “I’m wearing it for every guy in the Astros organization. This is for all of us.” A native of Kings Park on New York’s Long Island, Biggio said he visited the Hall of Fame as a kid with his family but didn’t remem ber much. Rest assured he won’t forget this trip. Biggio ‘kind of speechless’ after Hall of Fame visit

(Tombo Martin is one of the stars of Buck Commander on Outdoor Channel, a former major league baseball pitcher, graduate of Bay High and resident of our area. If you have a question for Tombo send it to Q : “We’ve been arguing and need a tiebreaker opinion from someone who doesn’t hunt with us. We’ve started seeing bears a lot more off 231 at our lease and some of us think it’s ruining the hunting and we’re not seeing as many deer. But some are saying we see just as many deer but because we’re seeing bears it just seems like there are fewer deer, that it’s all in our heads. So how do you think does the presence of bears affects hunting?” A : I think the more bears there are in a general area, the more effect it would have on deer patterns. Contrary to all of the Disney movies, I just wouldn’t consider them playmates. I too, was on a lease, once upon a time, off 231 and had a bear tear down my feeder and claw a bunch of trees. That pretty much dwindled down the number of deer that Port St. Joe Panama City Destin Navarre 1-888-668-9810 PANAMA CITY NEWS HERALD Outdoors SUNDAY February 1, 2015 More coverage online at Section D Throwin g lead Tombo Martin Throwing Lead Bear sightings don’t necessarily scare off deer SEE BEAR | D2 Skinny Water Fishing for Winter Redfish By FRANK SARGEANT Face it, February is not prime time for Panhandle fishing on most species, and your best bet for a serious fishing fix might be a flight to Key West. But for those who persist on local waters, there are some rewards. Stalking redfish on the flats can be anywhere between fair and great this month, depending on the frequency and severity of the fronts. While fishing during a front leaves much to be desired, the days directly after passage of bad weather can be exceptional. Typically, the wind that originally blows out of the northwest backs around to the north and then to the northeast, and this sustained breeze pushes a lot of water out the passes, creating extreme low tides in the bays along the Panhandle shores. If a front happens to pass on the three days either side of a new or full moon, the low tide affect is much stronger and the water goes much lower. The advantage of extreme low water is that it forces reds on the flats into a much more limited amount of territory than they normally prowl, making it easier for anglers to locate them. And, in some terrain, it also creates a “tailing” situation where the fish prowl water shallow enough for their dorsal fins and the upper tip of their tails to show above the surface, particularly when they tilt their heads down to feed. Good tailing water is typically 8 to 14 inches deep, but a seasoned eye can spot fish in up to two feet on a calm day. Sometimes the whole back of the fish will be visible in the shallowest areas, other times you may see just a half-inch of fin, or nothing more than the swirl where a fish swept its tail. Polarized glasses with side shields are a big help in spotting these fish, as is a long-billed cap to shade the lenses. Seeing them is much like seeing deer in the woods—you keep your head still and sweep with your eyes, letting the fish movement tell you where they are. Seeing a redfish that’s not moving is possible on white sand, but it’s much easier when they’re on the move. Getting in the right spot If you fish from a kayak or shallow draft boat, it’s usually best to position yourself on the upwind side of a flat and let the breeze slowly ease you along; that way there’s no need to turn the trolling motor on and off to move. Though electric trolling motors are quiet, in the world of skinny water the sound of them can be heard long distances and can flush fish well beyond casting range. If you have a partner to switch out on the push pole, this adds a tactical advantage, allowing you to travel in any direction with almost no noise. Silently paddling a ‘yak also works very well. One very useful tool in this pursuit is a stake-type anchor. Power systems like the venerable Power-Pole make it remarkably simple to stop the boat in seconds, almost silently, at the touch of a key fob. There are also manual systems, basically a rod and a lock, that work well for kayaks, canoes and jonboats, though not so well for larger craft. Whatever system you use—and a clanking anchor is not an option here—it’s important to be able to stop the boat quickly when you’re in casting range. Otherwise, the boat is soon too close to the fish—they sense its presence and disappear in a whirl of sand. If you’re in an area where you know fish are present close by, the best approach is often to get out of the boat and ease into range by wading. Of course, in winter, this will usually require some neoprene waders to keep your feet from turning blue, but wadefishing is by far the best way to get close to spooky reds because of the minimal profile and noise. Finding prime areas Many flats have runouts or sloughs cut through their outer edges, and these are always likely spots to check as the water drops— any crabs, baitfish or shrimp up on the flat will be pulled through these outlets on the fall, and the reds are likely to stack up on the outside edge to feed on them. There are also depressions and basins inside the shallow flats, and these are low-tide magnets for fish, as well. The hole doesn’t have to be much deeper than the surrounding flats to hold reds—sometimes an 18-inchdeep pothole or cut surrounded by 8inch-deep water with seagrass can be a hotspot, though larger and deeper holes are often most productive. Dug channels leading to marinas, resorts and other facilities can also be highly productive, as can creek outflows— often the creek channel continues on out through the flat for several hundred yards. Check borrow pits around causeways, as well. You can quickly find many likely areas to produce by visiting Google Maps ( and going to the satellite view. The holes and cuts show clearly from above. In general, open sand flats have few fish, while those with grass, oyster beds or rock are likely to be more productive. Fooling flats reds Redfish in deep water are among the easiest of all fish to catch — but those in ankle-high water can be among the hardest. It not only takes a very stealthy approach, but also a stealth-type bait or lure. It’s hard to beat a large live shrimp for reds in winter — buy “selects” or larger, even though they’re more expensive, because the larger shrimp are more active on the hook as well as easier to cast without adding weights. Best way to fish live shrimp is on a short-shank live bait hook in light wire, size 2 or smaller — large hooks weight down the shrimp and prevent it from moving naturally. The light wire hook means you’ve got to present the bait with spinning tackle and a relatively soft rod, and you’ve got to keep the drag light to avoid straightening that little hook. Braided line in P hotos by FRANK SARGEANT Waders will feel good on most days when prowling Panhandle flats in February. Below, sometimes, getting out of the boat and wading into casting range is the best approach for getting into casting range. SEE REDFISH | D2


I saw for the next several days to a week. Fast forward to the present and to my little escape from reality that I now have in Jackson County ... I’ve only had one bear come through my property in the past 8 years. He destroyed three of my feeders and within hours of the bear leaving, deer were present on my game cameras. I let my feeders run dry for about two weeks and luckily he moved on to greener pastures, or just over to the neighbor’s feeders. I feel if deer are frequenting a certain area, they will move elsewhere temporarily until the coast is clear, if Smokey comes crashing in, tearing stuff up and throwing up corn everywhere. They do always seem to come back though, in my experience. Just to tie break the tiebreaker, I consulted my personal bear expert and biologist with the Florida Fish & Wildlife Conservation Commission (and founder of Camo Dreams Inc.), Derek Fussell. “While a lucky bear might catch a new fawn or an injured deer, they are not on the regular menu for bears,” Fussell said. “Deer have pretty specific home ranges that they stick to (radio telemetry studies back this up) and the general presence of a bear is not going to make them leave an area. “They may alter their habits, which can reduce the likelihood of a hunter seeing them,” he continued. “Trail cameras would help tell the story. I personally have had deer and bear pictures on the same camera within a day or so of each other.” I hope this helps and now I’m curious as to who owes whom a beer now.

HUNTING TIMES & & Brought home a big buck or sh? Submit your hunting and shing photos to outdoors@pcnh. com . Hook harvest Pictures courtesy of PC Hunting Facebook Page Ashlyn Jernigan (left, pictured with Keelin Alsobrooks) shot this 34-point beast recently in Youngstown. Alsobrooks said they’ve seen that buck on camera for years and nicknamed him “Freak,” and have been hunting him for years on some property near Youngstown. Aaron Waters, 24, shot this 9-point buck in Bay County on family owned property near Compass lake on U.S. 231 Jan. 18. Waters normally bow hunts but this day took his gun and couldn’t say no. His daughter Chloe, 2, joined him for this picture. Bruce Bailey shot this 150pound sow near Scotts Ferry. He took a 120-yard shot with his Weatherby 257 around 5 p.m. Bryce Singletary with the buck he killed Dec. 28 while running dogs. Cole Maloy took this 8-point buck in Calhoun County Wednesday morning around 6:45 a.m. at about 15 yards with his 270 while it was preoccupied chasing a doe. “I was in my blind,” Maloy said. “He had no idea I was there.” David Penninger, 9, shot his first deer in south Alabama last weekend. His dad said he took it from about 80 yards out with a .243 rifle. James “Mr. Jim” Nolan, 82, took his largest buck ever, an 8 point, just over a week ago during an evening hunt at the Old Shiloy Hunting Club. Joshua Rogers and his friends had a good morning recently wrapping up the season and allowing a friend of his to take his first two ducks. Steph-James Potts got some nice shots – as in pictures – of a group of gobblers at his southern Alabama lease near Dothan, including this curious turkey. BEAR from Page D1 10 pound test on a 2500-size spinning reel is about right for most reds you’ll run into on the flats. Add 12 to 18 inches of 20-pound-test fluorocarbon leader to make the attachment less visible and stiffen the rig so that the shrimp is less likely to swim in loops and tangle. A piece of fresh-cut mullet, pinfish or ladyfish is also an excellent offering for redfish —just keep the chunks fresh, because they put out lots more scent when they first hit the water. Shrimp-like lures are also effective — the 4-inch DOA Shrimp and the GULP! Shrimp are both highly successful when fished exactly like the real thing, very slowly, with the current providing most of the movement. GULP! Crabs also do well, particularly on hard-fished reds that are extra spooky—they’re simply cast upcurrent of the fish and allowed to sit there until the scent lures the fish in. Bimini Bay’s Tsunami swimbaits in the 3-inch and 4-inch size with the lighter weights can also be effective on the flats at times — these can be hopped or swam in front of the fish. And standard soft plastic jerkbaits like those from Culprit in 4 to 6 inch sizes are also effective—they’re usually fished unweighted, Texas-rigged to prevent hanging in the grass. Making the cast There’s a bit of an art to putting bait or lure in the right place for flats reds. Too far from them and they don’t see it, too close and they spook. It’s better to err on the side of being too far away, obviously. The perfect shot on a dead calm, sunny day in ankle-deep water is going to be further away from the fish than the perfect shot on a cloudy, windy day where you’ve got 18 inches of water to work with. In general, on moving fish, the best shot is about 8 to 10 feet in front of them — if they’re traveling consistently and steadily 15 to 20 feet might be safer. With scent baits and shrimp, the cast should land directly upcurrent of the fish-the water flow will then bring the smell to them as they get close and it’s game on. With lures, it’s usually better to cast slightly beyond the fish so that you have a bit of space to work with — let the lure rest on bottom until the fish swim up within 5 feet or so, then twitch it lightly and be ready to set the hook. The big thing to remember in sight-fishing is that baits do not attack fish — almost always a lure that’s pulled towards the fish will spook them. A lure crossing in front of them is good, or moving slightly away from them is better. If the angles won’t allow you to make this escaping delivery, just let the lure set until the fish are close enough to see it and then twitch it in place — often the slightest movement is all it takes. Redfishing on the flats can remain good for much of the winter — extreme cold will move them out of the shallows for a few days, but the return of sunny, warm afternoons soon brings them back. The size limit on redfish is 18 to 27 inches, and the bag limit for the Northwest Zone, including all Panhandle waters, is two per person per day. REDFISH from Page D1


This article covers trees that are Evergreen (leaves year round) and deciduous trees that lose their leaves in the fall. Properly chosen trees can be used to combat pollution, protect soil and water resources, beautify, increase property values and generally enhance the quality of life in a community. Trees often add diversity to an otherwise sterile environment. Shade trees, in this era of high energy costs, can help lower heating and cooling bills dramatically. On a hot summer day, an average-size tree will transpire as much as 300 gallons of water, giving it about the same cooling effect as 10 room air conditioners. If trees are deciduous, homeowners can take advantage of the warmth of the winter sun, as well as summer shade. Flowering trees are the highlight of any landscape, adding a bonus of seasonal bloom to other uses such as shading and screening. They are best used to complement larger shade trees, but to be effective in the landscape, they must be used with care. In bloom, a tree might make a lovely patio specimen, but if falling blossoms will create a litter problem, it might be more suitable as a lawn specimen. Try to place flowering trees to accent the best feature of your home because when they are in bloom they call attention to themselves and their surroundings. Below is one deciduous tree that is now being available in our nurseries. We call them Joy Magnolia. These trees have blooms that have saucer-like flowers. Sometimes called tulip trees because of the shape of the blooms. Some varieties of magnolia soulangiana are ‘Saucer Magnolia’ (white,) Alexandria (purplish-pink,) and Jurmag 1 (deep wine red.) Deciduous trees should be staked at least one year. Reason, when they leaf out the wind will cause the root system to be unstable. Howard C. Gray Va lentine Sp ecials! NE W!

They list needs and services weekly. All donations are tax-deductible and can be delivered to their office only during office hours of Monday-Thursday 8 a.m.-3 p.m. For more information, call 785-1721. SOUP FOR THE BOWL: With the Super Bowl airing today please remember Family Service Agency’s annual “Soup for the Bowl.” This is an annual event held when our food pantry is low on soup and right now we are very low. Many of our elderly only receive $16 per month in food stamps and they enjoy a warm bowl of soup during the winter months as many of their homes are not kept very warm in order to save on electricity. Some requests we get but rarely have on hand are split green pea, cream of chicken, chicken & rice, vegetable, cream of broccoli, gumbo, cream of potato, bean & bacon and all types of chowders. Any boxed, bagged, canned or pre-packaged soups would be greatly appreciated. BABY DIAPERS and BABY BOTTLES: Our infant/toddler room is out of size 4 and size 5 baby diapers. We are also almost out of baby bottles. We are at a standstill with a few orders because they cannot be filled until these donations come in. FOUR-PLY YARN: Veterans groups are requesting fourply yarn to make lap-robes for veterans in wheelchairs and patients in local nursing homes. We help supply them with yarn when we can. If you have any to donate, bring it to our office and we will pass it along to them. LARGE and/or EXTRA LARGE ADULT WOMEN’S PULL-UP TYPE DIAPERS: Many of our clients suffer from incontinence. They struggle to afford the proper supplies needed to stay dry and to be able to go out of the house without fear of accidents in public. Several of our clients are stroke survivors or have Parkinson’s and because of weakness or tremors cannot use tape-type diapers. Other clients need Pull-Up type diapers because an opposite sex child is their caregiver and it preserves their dignity. 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 ended last year and now we are running low on diabetic test strips. The brands we need most are: True Result, True Track, Bayer Contour, One Touch Ultra and Freestyle Lite. We also need the alcohol swab/wipes. 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. We currently do not need lancets or meters. 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 that will absorb spills and are 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. SMALL INK CARTRIDGES: Family Service Agency recycles the small ink cartridges used in personal printers, so please drop them off at the agency. (Sorry we cannot use the toner-type cartridges.) CELLPHONES: Family Service Agency recycles cellphones. 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. COUPONS: Many of us get coupons in the newspaper and magazines and don’t use that coupon but we have many people who come in and go through our basket of coupons and get what they need to help stretch their food budgets. Please drop off unwanted manufacturer coupons to our office. 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. BOTANISTS Corner HOWARD GRAY


ARIES (March 21-April 19): A German proverb states, “Charity sees the need, not the cause.” You see both now, as long as you put your sights on both. Stay clear and give judiciously. TAURUS (April 20May 20): Hobbies are not extracurricular -they are the curriculum of life. The more time you spend on hobbies this weekend the more fortunate you will be. Scorpio and Gemini people will be lucky partners. GEMINI (May 21June 21): If you are not a religious person, this will be enough to get you through: What is right will eventually triumph. Believe it. Religious or not, right has an undeniable power to it. CANCER (June 22-July 22): Your current mood has you honoring the things you didn’t pay attention to yesterday. On a deep level, you know there is purpose to each and every life on the planet -spiders count, too! LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): You don’t have to go fullthrottle all the time. Your gentle attempts will be successful as long as you follow through to the logical conclusion. The only way to fail is to quit too soon. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): At the moment, it might feel as though you are the more loving one, and that is fine with you. You’d rather admire than not. It makes you richer to realize what is wonderful about others. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23): You need relief from the thing that you have too much of, even if it’s a good thing. Today brings the reprieve, and tomorrow it’s back to normal. Enjoy the rest. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21): Voting happens in many forms, and today it’s mostly financial -each dollar is a vote. Note that today people are more likely to vote against what they don’t like than to vote for what they believe in. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22Dec. 21): Communication will happen whether or not you’re trying, so you might as well try. When you feel you have nothing to say, but you say it anyway, you will connect with someone special. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22Jan. 19): Strike out in a new direction. Don’t worry about whether you have a talent for it. Don’t worry about whether it will be lucrative. Don’t worry about whether it’s sensible. You’ll be better for having experienced something new. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20Feb. 18): You’re at your charming best today. Even though this will be a low-key day, you’ll find a novel way of presenting events as though they were newsworthy. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): This is a happy time because you are getting back something that you thought was lost for good. Celebrate in your own quiet way. Acknowledging the goodness of this attracts more of it. Community Connections publishes regular meetings of groups with particular interests.

Page D4 | The News Herald | Sunday, February 1, 2015 LIFESTY L E COMMUNITY Connections Your H O R OS C O P E : Holiday Mathis ‘A Tal e of Two Kitties’ They have seen the worst of times, lost and homeless, now we are hoping to help these two cats find the best of times* Deidra is a 3 year old domestic long-haired cat. Her stunning golden eyes reflect the beauty of her soul. Her ebony coat will require a good brushing often, to maintain its luster. Deidra will approach you for affection, and give you loving head bumps, but she is just as comfortable being on her own. Deidra came to Alaqua as a stray, saved by a local veterinary clinic. She has adjusted to shelter life well, and is great at making friends. She only wants a family to call her own, and a home where she can share her love. Tippen is six years old, and her gorgeous green eyes are simply beautiful. She has taken on the assignment as the official greeter to all. She will sit by the door and wait for you to give her a gentle pet. You could not find a sweeter companion. She does not act as if she is 6, she has kept her figure nice and trim, and her tabby coat is lovely. Tippen is a great girl, and she gets along well with other cats. She is happy to find a warm place in the sun, and observe the birds and activity around the cabins. Her hope is to one day find a home of her own Please visit Alaqua to meet Deidra and Tippen. Both of these lovely ladies are in the “Priceless Purrs” program, which means, to an approved adopter, there is no adoption fee. You might be the one to give them their best of times, in a home to call their own,where they can live ... happily ever after! Gaye Patton A L AQUA Adoptable Pets

The walls and floors are very well-insulated, but definitely not soundproof. We recently adopted a dog, “Princess,” from a family friend. Princess is still young (two years old) and she’s a sweet dog who is (mostly) wonderful when we are home. If we are around, she’s extremely quiet and doesn’t bark at the other pets in the house or even when visitors come to the door. Recently I left Princess alone. The next day my neighbor below told me that the dog barked for almost three hours. I apologized profusely and she assured me that it wasn’t a problem for her. Since Princess is kennel-trained, I thought that kenneling her when we are gone would solve the problem. Two weeks later I learned that the dog continues to bark when she’s alone (albeit for a shorter period of time). Again I apologized and promised to work on training. However, training will take some time. No other neighbors have complained but Princess is a rather large dog with a ferocious-sounding bark and (although she’s not) she looks like a restricted breed. On one hand, I want to leave notes for my other neighbors apologizing for the noise (assuming they hear her) and asking for their patience. On the other hand, I worry that someone will use it against me and complain to animal control (or the authorities). What would you do? If I leave a note, do you have suggested wording? Puppy Parents DEAR PARENTS: If your primary concern is that your note will somehow notify your neighbors that you have an unhappy dog held hostage in your apartment, I’d say that you needn’t worry about that — they are likely very aware of it. If you are worried that a note from you will serve as evidence that your dog is not in the right home and might prompt calls to animal control, then shame on you. Be as upfront and courteous in your note as you were to the neighbor who complained. Thank them for their indulgence while your dog adjusts, assure them you are working on it, and leave your cellphone number so they can call you with any concerns. As committed as you are, your apartment home might not be the right place for this young, large and active dog. If you aren’t around during the day, you might have to take her to doggy day care — or hire a walker to exercise and keep her stimulated and happy when you aren’t home. DEAR AMY: I completely disagree with your advice to “Saddened Parent,” who got attached to her 21-year-old daughter’s boyfriend. As a mother of two daughters I can tell you that getting attached to their high school boyfriends is emotional suicide! Most high school sweethearts don’t end up marrying each other so becoming emotionally attached as the parent is a very bad idea. I tell all of my friends with young teen daughters to not get attached to the boyfriend — this way you can be 100 percent supportive of your daughter and her decisions when the time comes. That is not to say you shouldn’t be kind, inviting and supportive of the young man in your daughter’s life, just don’t be stupid! Sue K DEAR SUE: Thank you for your perspective. I agree with your admonition to be kind, inviting and supportive. “Don’t be stupid!” is also excellent advice, applied to many situations. Thank you. DEAR AMY: I’m responding to “Furious Dad,” whose family spent a Christmas visit with relatives who were ill and is now upset with them because his own family caught the illness. He should have simply gone to a hotel and enjoyed an unexpected vacation with his own family, while offering to be helpful to the sick family members in the other household. He was a selfish, boorish guest to expect this family to house and feed his brood. He blamed others when he could have seen this as an opportunity to expect more from himself. Stuff Happens DEAR STUFF: Well said. Sunday CRO SS WORD Ask AMY Send questions via e-mail to askamy@ or by mail to Ask Amy, Chicago Tribune, TT500, 435 N. Michigan Ave., Chicago, IL 60611.

PANAMA CITY NEWS HERALD Viewpoints Section E 4-headed palms and ’gator heads T his week we’re going to meander through the stuff cluttering my brain, and we’ll start with the 100-plus comments on my last column and Facebook post regarding a voicemail my son had left on my phone. He would only say he had a “little problem” that would be best discussed “talk to talk,” not on the phone, and that I shouldn’t worry despite the microwave beeping ominously in the background. I invited readers to guess what it was he had done and I would pick my favorite and give the person a $10 gift card to Starbucks. While it turned out he had only cut his finger on a can, the guesses were more creative. “He decided to save you some money and cut his own hair, and accidentally shaved one side completely bald,” guessed Sabrina Trumbell. “He found out the adoption rumors weren’t true,” joked Peg St. John. But the winner was from Vickie Thomason Kesler. Kesler offered up multiple guesses, including, “He shot a deer? He cut himself shaving? He kissed a girl and liked it?” I would’ve loved the first one, he’s already done the second, and we’re a year or so away from the third (I hope). Congratulations, Vickie! Twice in the last week the opportunity has arisen to talk about the one-of-a-kind 4-headed palm tree at Oaks by the Bay Park in Panama City. If you haven’t seen this, you ought to make a stop at the quiet park nestled at the bottom of Beck Avenue on St. Andrews Bay. When I first wrote about it, many, many years ago, it was on the grounds of Panama City’s Wastewater Treatment Plant, where it has sprung from seed. Theories abound on how it came to have four palm heads, some say it was repeatedly run over with a lawn mower as a sprout while others opine it has something to do with the nearby chemicals. Regardless, it is the only 4-headed palm tree in the entire world at last check, and is a star among palm enthusiasts. It has taken some special care over the years – like sup ports for its four different palm heads and the city ultimately moved it to its current location so everyone could enjoy it. Ran across a waitress at Bayou Bill’s Crab House, 23100 Front Beach Road, a while back and it’s remained on my mind because it not only was the best service and crab legs I’d had in some time, but she appeared perfectly normal and smart with the exception of a piercing through her neck. I hadn’t seen that before. She assured me it wasn’t too painful when it went in and that it does elicit lots of questions. The only real issue, she said, was getting through airport security when it had just been put in and couldn’t be taken out. “It almost got weird,” she said. A near child-related disaster was averted recently with a trip to the original Alvin’s Island, 12010 Front Beach Road, and the one that used to house a witch and still has live alligators, on a rainy Sunday morning. Twenty years ago the store would’ve been closed in the winter, but these days it’s open year round. That was a good thing when one of my son’s Christmas gifts – a genuine 12-inchlong alligator head – was eaten by the family dog in his absence. I was relieved to find a replacement head at Alvin’s, along with an “I visited Panama City Beach” T-shirt. The clerk offered this up, as I was a little embarrassed as a local to be buying a tourist shirt: “Don’t be,” she said. “You’d be surprised how many locals shop here. They want to walk around looking sloppy like they’re on vaca tion, so they dress up like tourists and no one notices.” A former co-worker and friend of mine, Sharon Michalik, once a champion couch potato, told me she signed up for a 150-mile bike ride in Texas to raise money for multiple sclerosis. Embarrassingly, she said, her husband is out-fundraising her and is soliciting donations from friends. I have neither the inclination to bicycle 150 miles nor the wallet to contribute, but if you’re interested go to http:// k and you can help a good cause . Florida Chamber: Paying for the uninsured “Insured Floridians pay about $2,000 for every hospital stay to cover the cost of the uninsured.” — Florida Chamber of Commerc e on Jan. 13 in a report on health care costs By JOSHUA GILLI N T he Florida Chamber of Commerce is weighing in on the state’s rising cost of health care, decrying the Affordable Care Act’s plans to expand Medicaid, but acknowledging uninsured residents cost big bucks. A chamber task force on Jan. 13, 2015, released a seven-point pla n entitled “Smarter Healthcare Coverage in Florida,” ahead of a potential fight among state lawmakers about how to cover the uninsured; Florida’s annual legislative session starts March 3. The group made it pretty clear they don’t endorse President Barack Obama’s health care law, calling it “a bureaucratic malaise that is taxing Americans and making our country less competitive” by shifting costs to businesses and taxpayers, and forcing up insurance premiums. They do acknowledge that Florida having the second-highest number of uninsured residents is a problem that needs fixing. “Floridians pay an additional $1.4 billion in hidden health care taxes to cover health care received by the uninsured,” the report read. “Insured Floridians pay about $2,000 for every hospital stay to cover the cost of the uninsured.” Making insured residents pay an extra $2,000 per hospital stay piqued our interest, because that’s a hefty add-on to already high medical bills. We wondered whether it was a true expense, or if the chamber was just padding its own invoice. Footing the bill The chamber’s report said 3 million Floridians don’t have health insurance. The group told us it used Kaiser Family Foundation data that showed there were about 3.6 millio n . An estimate using Census dat a said about 3.8 million of Florida’s 19 million residents were uninsured in 2013. That same report ranked Florida second in the nation in uninsured residents. We’ve explored this topic before, and found Florida was third in its percentage of uninsured, behind Texas and Nevad a . Tim Thompson, Publisher Mike Cazalas, Editor S. Brady Calhoun, Editorial Page Editor 747-5075 | @sbradycalhoun SUND A Y February 1, 2015 SEE UNINSURED | E2 For those late to “Deflate-gate,” let me save you some time: Tom Brady or Patriots coach Bill Belichick did it. They either knew or willfully looked the other way as the underlings they instructed let two pound of pressure out of their footballs. This makes it easier to throw and catch footballs and to avoid fumbles. The NFL and Roger Goodell said they did not know or see anything. It’s as if the balls were deflated in an Atlantic City casino elevator. Patriots owner Robert Kraft pointed to Belichick. Belichick pointed to Brady. Brady pointed to the ball boy. Obama instinctively blamed Bush. Most likely, New England has been doing this for years. Since 2010, the Patriots have lost fewer fumbles per play, by 35 percent, than any nondomed team. Any statistician will tell you that is impossible. The league average is one fumble per 48 plays; in frigid New England, the Patriots fumble once every 73 plays. They got caught in past seasons when defensive backs intercepted Brady and kept the balls for a memento. Tom Brady is a heartthrob, luring many women to watch the Patriots. He married a super-model (which is like marrying two regular models), Gisele Bundchen. Sadly, we live in a society that expects this of a quarterback with movie star good looks, so he had no choice. Brady is so gorgeous that he does not have to read linebackers at the line of scrimmage; he just weakens their knees with his dreamy, blueeyed gaze. His rock-hard abs and taut body force defensive ends to confront their own sexuality before tackling him. Brady is known for throwing up a Hail Mary pass and seeing who comes down with it. It’s also his philosophy on contraception. So what should be the punishment? Fearing further risk to its reputation, the NFL will not do much. The League is like the government; it never punishes its own, bows to unions and cowers in the face of tough decisions. A committee will be formed to “look into it,” which means it will stall. The NFL formed a committee to “look into” Ray Rice, Ray Lewis, etc. Its committees still have not reported on Ray Nitschke’s purported use of performance enhancing grimaces when he played for the 1968 Packers. Then how does society penalize Tom Brady, et. al. for cheating? Our government has laws, rules, regulations, prosecutors, jails, judges, appeals, etc. It reminds us it is always just. Yet the quickest and most punitive way we get justice in America is via the pocketbook and corporate America, run by those “immoral, greedy capitalists” as liberals would have you believe. Free market capitalism metes out economic justice. Tom Brady, whose reputation was already sullied by past scandals, does few endorsements. Now, Brady will get even fewer endorsements from America’s corporations. My best guess of the present cost to Brady in lost endorsement revenues from being dubbed a cheater: $35 million. Class act Peyton Manning does ten times the commercials. The 18-34 year old male demographic loves Peyton so much it makes Rick Santorum uncomfortable. If you do not think this is true, check post-baseball endorsement deals for sluggers Barry Bonds, Sammy Sosa and Mark McGuire. Pete Rose has baseball’s most hits of all time, 4,256, but can’t get a job as a greeter at an Indian casino. The best example is Tiger Woods. He was the No. 1 golfer in the world, with hundreds of millions in endorsement deals until he sped out of his driveway fleeing from his wife, hit a tree with his car, and twenty bimbos fell out. His endorsement deals evaporated and now he can’t play dead in a Western. Only under pressure from $200 million-a-year sponsor Budweiser did the NFL attempt anything morally righteous in the Ray Rice fiancee beating case. It is a sad day when a booze purveyor has to define the moral high ground for you. No matter what happens today, New England is lucky to be in the Super Bowl. Under Obama, the Patriots are fortunate to be still sanctioned as an organization. They were almost shut down by Lois Lerner and the IRS several years ago when the “Patriot” in their name was mistaken for a Tea Party organization.

Page E2 | The News Herald | Sunday, February 1, 2015 VIEWPOINTS Calculating how much those uninsured Floridians cost other patients is not the easiest leap to make. We asked several state, medical and insurance agencies whether the number was accurate or not, and no one had a statistic measured in such a way. The chamber told us they collected data from “an urban hospital” and tracked that unspecified facility’s cost-to-charge ratio. That’s a measure of how much care actually costs a hospital to provide versus how much they would charge a patient, and can vary from hospital to hospital. The chamber then divided the uninsured procedures’ costs by the total number of admissions through managed-care insurance plans. After adjusting for accounting discrepancies and other factors, the chamber determined the cost was about $2,300 per patient. To account for cost differences between the kinds of patients other hospitals would admit and the type of care they receive, they estimated a lower end of the range at $1,700, or about 75 percent of the first estimate. The chamber acknowledged setting this low end was a “somewhat arbitrary determination.” The description of “about $2,000” was meant to be an average of this range, chamber spokeswoman Edie Ousley told PolitiFact Florida. “There will be, of course, individual hospitals (that) cost shift and some costshifting less per insured patient,” Ousley said. “The intent of the calculation was to take real data from a representative hospital and try to provide an order of magnitude of the cost shift of the uninsured.” The chamber said in its plan there were $1.4 billion in unpaid hospital expenses in 2012, a number that jibes with a Florida Hospital Association report that said in 2012, state hospitals spent $1.4 billio n in “charity care” (the same as it was in 2011). To put that in perspective, the Agency for Health Care Administration reported more than $119 billion in charge s for all hospital admissions in 2012. The average stay was about five days and cost more than $44,500. Charity care is defined as “free or discounted health services provided to people who meet hospitals’ criteria for financial assistance.” It doesn’t include bad debt, uncollected charges or differences in treatment costs versus what a government program pays. FHA President Bruce Rueben has sai d he hoped “there will be inroads” to lowering that number in future reports, when people newly insured under the Affordable Care Act are taken into account. The federal insurance exchange didn’t open until Oct. 1, 2013, with policies starting in 2014, so data on how that affects charity care aren’t available. In any event, patients with insurance do end up paying for people who are not covered. Linda Quick, president of the South Florida Hospital and Healthcare Association, said she had heard the Chamber’s number used before, but wasn’t aware of how it had been calculated. Nonetheless, it’s an estimate that is rooted in a real problem, she said. “I think the underlying premise, those who do pay, pay for those who can’t/don’t is true,” she told PolitiFact Florida via email, “although the ‘cost shifting’ had become more burdensome before the Affordable Care Act and the availability of affordable coverage.” If Florida fully implemented the health care law, it would reduce the ranks of the uninsured. The pro-expansion Florida Center for Fiscal and Economic Policy estimates about 1 million people would be covered under the Medicaid expansion by 202 0 , while the Kaiser Family Foundation said about 1.3 million people now qualify under the Affordable Care Act for subsidies to help them pay for private insuranc e . The Kaiser study said some 764,000 Floridians would fall into a coverage gap created when they earn too much to get Medicaid coverage, but not enough to get those subsidies. The rest either must buy their own insurance, are children covered by another program or are ineligible because of their immigration status. Our ruling The Florida Chamber of Commerce said, “Insured Floridians pay about $2,000 for every hospital stay to cover the cost of the uninsured.” That number is based on an estimate the chamber developed in-house, calculating an average based on an unspecified “urban hospital” using the most recent data. There’s no way to tell just how accurate that estimate is, since it makes plenty of assumptions on actual costs. It also doesn’t take into account how much the Affordable Care Act will change the data, since the requirement for the uninsured to have policies didn’t kick in until 2014. Experts we talked to said there are problems with the chamber’s number, but it’s a somewhat reasonable illustration to a real problem in Florida: People who are insured end up paying for those who aren’t. The statement is partially ac curate but leaves out important details or takes things out of context. We rate it Half True. UNINSURED from page E1 The entertainment industry enabled Cosby By TINA DUPUY Hollywood is rumored to be a liberal bastion. Why exactly? Because a couple of actors raised some money for Obama? Hollywood as a business is far from liberal. Its core value isn’t progress; its core value is profit. If “Fifty Shades of Grey” can make money, it’s produced. If “The Passion of the Christ” can make money, it’s produced. Hollywood’s only bottom line is the bottom line. So if the most powerful man in town is a libertine predator, but he’s making people money, he has immunity. Yes, I’m speaking of America’s father figure, sitcom icon Bill Cosby. As of this writing, more than 30 women spanning four decades have come out publicly to say that Cosby sexually assaulted them. But because we love Cosby, the knee-jerk reaction is to cast doubt on these women: “Who are they?” “Why’d they wait so long to come forward?” “What are their motives?” “I don’t know why it’s so hard to believe women,” said Jay Leno during an interview at an industry conference last week. “You go to Saudi Arabia, you need two women to testify against a man. Here you need 25.” Because in the world of television the formula is set: Bad guys lose, good guys win. Bad guys are bad. Good guys are those we identify with—their struggles, their charm, their perseverance. To Americans, Cosby was the quintessential television good guy. I didn’t have a father growing up. The father I created was an amalgam of advertising images and Dr. Huxtable. So it’s understandable for fans to reflexively want to protect Cosby by casting doubt on his accusers. We aren’t used to seeing monsters who don’t look like monsters. Cosby is a complicated villain who made an entire industry complicit in his sex crimes. It’s now clear Bill Cosby, the man, is more fit for a Shakespeare drama than a halfhour situation comedy. If you talk to people in the Cosby-sphere (which I have), his assaulting women has been an open secret for a very long time. So forgive me for not calling him an alleged rapist. He’s an enabled rapist. One victim is a crime—more than 30 is a criminal enterprise. And just like in the mob, if you’re an earner, you’re protected. The moment Cosby was no longer bankable, the allegations suddenly stuck. I commend those responsible for canceling Cosby’s new projects after more than a dozen women came forward. A Cosby crony, former NBC employee Frank Scotti, told the Daily News he paid off women for the comedian in the 1980s. Besides Scotti, there are plenty of others who knew this was going on and did nothing. Those who at best looked the other way and at worst supplied the family friendly fraud with young girls. As a television viewing public, once we get past not believing three-dozen women and finally admit Cosby is a serial rapist, the next phase is even more uncomfortable. It’s realizing there’s an industry we love and admire that fostered, promoted and profited off a Cosby. Who was going to stop the gravy train just because a couple of models got hurt? Apparently no one. In an industry that loves to navel gaze, it’s time for some serious self-reflection. Imagine being brutally assaulted by a beloved entertainer who was free to continue the practice as he wanted. These women were rape victims first and victims of a conspiracy against rape victims next. Whether Cosby will be charged with a crime or not is yet to be seen, but regardless of the legal system, it’s the Hollywood machine that should be held in contempt: An industry with no regard for young women, treating them as a disposable commodity to be fed to a star. That’s the buried lead in the Cosby saga: As a predator, he thrived and blossomed in a business where the only crime, it appears, is not being profitable. B I LL CO SB Y


Page E3 | The News Herald | Sunday, February 1, 2015 Viewpoints Legislature, fix medical marijuana A fter getting a reprieve at the ballot box last November, Florida’s legislature is once again racing the clock and the smoke signals of public opinion on the medical marijuana issue. Last year, the legislature and Gov. Rick Scott implemented an approval of the use of low-potency marijuana for cancer and epilepsy patients. Then, in November, a constitutional amendment that would have allowed doctors to prescribe marijuana for almost any kind of ailment barely failed to reach the 60 percent supermajority necessary for passage. However, on Jan. 1 the patients who need marijuana to help with their suffering found that Florida’s bureaucracy had failed them. Currently, a regulatory structure for growing and distributing pot has not been approved, leaving vulnerable patients without the medicine they need. If something isn’t done soon those that want to legalize marijuana – including those operating under the guise of helping the sick — will have all the ammo they require to get another constitutional amendment on the ballot. Legislators can’t bank on it being defeated a second time. Whatever any of us think of marijuana it is clear Floridians believe that those who are seriously ill should have the right to use it as part of their treatment. Last year, The News Herald opposed the marijuana amendment because the language was too broad and took the power to regulate the drug away from our elected representatives. There’s a fine line between helping people who need it – and defining in what form it should be administered and legalization. Last year’s amendment crossed it. However, we also urged the legislature to get serious about approving medical marijuana and setting up a system for patients to get the help they need. And that’s exactly what Sen. Jeff Brandes, R-St. Petersburg and Northwest Florida’s own Matt Gaetz, seem to be doing. It was Gaetz’s bill that was passed last year and in an editorial board meeting earlier this year he expressed frustration about the lack of implementation. This week, Brandes filed a bill that, according to the Associated Press, “includes a detailed regulatory structure that would place requirements on patients, doctors, growers and retail stores.” “Many groups have been working on this initiative for quite some time, and my goal is to work openly with all of the interested parties on this issue so that we can pass responsible legislation that provides relief to those Floridians in need,” Brandes said in a prepared statement. This appears to be exactly the type of bill we have been calling for and should be approved as fast as is responsible. If it doesn’t happen, Florida’s voters — many of whom voted “no” last time because they believed the legislature had addressed the issue —will rightly feel that they were duped. Also, it’s vital to separate the medical marijuana issue from legalization. Floridians may well, someday, choose to legalize marijuana. That is a debate worth having. However, the discussion should be honest and shouldn’t require marijuana users, doctors and others to lie in order to obtain the drug. A system built on corruption is doomed to fail. And, no matter the outcome of the legalization debate the first step is to nip the medical marijuana issue in the bud. By M ICHAEL REAGAN B ill Maher called Chris Kyle of “American Sniper” a “psychopath patriot.” Michael Moore called military snipers “cowards” who shoot people in the back. Howard Dean said “American Sniper” appeals mostly to angry Tea Party types. So what? Why do we conservatives give two cents about what these lefties and liberals say about “American Sniper” — or anything else? Nothing they ever say is surprising. Nothing they say ever adds to the debate, has any effect on anything or helps us find a solution to a serious problem. The predictable — and wrong -things these liberals and others on the left said about “American Sniper” glorifying killing or whitewashing the Iraq war couldn’t stop or hurt that great movie. Its record $250 million boxoffice take in just two weeks says it all. Spending time or space reacting to anything Moore tweets or Maher says on his barely watched HBO show is a waste of time for conservatives and their media. Dean’s comment (which he later apologized for) was seen and heard by far more people on conservative media outlets than on Maher’s show. Ditto for Moore’s garbled tweets, which otherwise would have been seen only by his mindless followers. So why does the conservative media take the bait, time and time again, and give the inane comments of liberal cranks so much attention and publicity? Simple. It’s great for their bottom lines. Unfortunately, attacking your enemies — even when you can predict what they’ll say before they say it — is what the American TV viewing audience wants. I wish I could change it, but the reality is that it’s all about getting higher ratings. Whether it’s on MSNBC, CNN or Fox News, the media boxing ring has been set up for everyone to be always fighting somebody else. It’s all about clashing opinions and playing to the opposite corners. You watch MSNBC to be mad at the right and Fox to be mad at the left and no one watches CNN. These staged media fights are rarely worth watching and they don’t bring any benefit to the country, the conservative cause or the political process. It’s rarely a fair fight. Alan Colmes and Bob Beckel are the Washington Generals of Fox News. And what good does it do for more than 2 million people to watch four conservatives beat up Beckel every night on “The Five”? Beckel, not to mention Fox News, is laughing all the way to the bank. But the show is a total waste of time for everyone else. You might as well watch an hour of professional wrestling. I’m looking for straight news, news I can use, not reports on dumb things said by my enemies. But straight news is hard to find on TV these days. Other people have noticed the news shortage. Last year during D-Day celebrations in Normandy I was talking to some highranking members of the 82nd Airborne. “What news do you guys watch?” I asked. “Al Jazeera America.” “’Al’ what?” “Al Jazeera. Because we’re looking for straight news, not opinion. We’ll form our own opinion.” Al Jazeera America being touted for its un-spun newscasts by U.S. military leaders is a shocking and depressing thought. But straight news won’t sell to the TV masses in America, where the news media have turned us into a National Inquirer country. We’re not getting the news we need or can use from network and cable TV. We get bad news, gotcha news, sensational news or shockvideo of car wrecks. The conservative media only make things worse when they constantly publicize the stupid things liberals say. It may be good for ratings. But at some point you have to say to the conservative media moguls, “Guys, there are a lot of important things going on in the world and what Michael Moore and Bill Maher think are not two of them.” Quit wasting time on Moore, Maher Our VIEW Tim Thompson, Publisher Mike Cazalas, Editor S.

CLASSIFIEDS RealEstate Today NEWS HERALD NEW HOMES. REALTO R REP R ESE N TED. RE N TALS. BY O W N E R . Advertorial special to the News Herald Single-family home sales in Bay County hit their highest volume in more than six years, according to new statistics released by the Bay County Association of Realtors. Home sales increased 14.1 percent in 2014 when compared to 2013 with a total volume of 2,556 in sales for the year. The median price for single-family homes held steady with less than a 1 percent increase in 2014. Inventory increased by less than 2 percent. The month’s supply of inventory dropped 10.7 percent to a little more than seven months of inventory. Remember, a healthy real estate market has between six and eight months worth of inventory. Townhouses and condos did not fare so well in 2014. Year-over-year sales were tough for the condo market in Bay County, ending the year down a little more than 4 percent in closed sales. Median prices are holding steady with a slight decrease of 0.8 percent for the year. Inventory continues to rise with a 10.7 percent increase in 2014. Because of lackluster sales, the month’s supply also increased over 15 percent to 8.1 months — still within healthy limits. Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac announced the return of 3 percent down payments at the end of 2014. Mortgage insurance premiums have been lowered by 0.50 percent. The hope is these measures will help buyers entering the market and spur home sales. When you’re ready to buy or sell, find your Realtor at www. .

FIND IT ALL IN THE PANAMA CITY NEWS HERALD STUDENTS STRUM WITH NEW ZEALAND UKULELE ORCHESTRA FOR MOM AND DAUGHTERS, WRESTLING IS THEIR LIFE IN THIS WEEK’S PAPER ST. ANDREWS MARDI GRAS ‘No one gets forgotten’ while investigating cold cases PANAMA CITY — When investigators searched Joanne Benner’s home not long after the 21-year-old wife went missing, they found a patch of carpet removed from her home on Titus Road in Bayou George. 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 never have 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. Investigators later found the patch of carpet in a 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 will to not be heard from again, disappeared under suspicious circumstances or were killed with no one to answer for the crime. 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.” CHECK OUT CAJUN COOKIN’ FOLLOW YOUR FAVORITE REPORTERS @The_News_Herald SPORTS OBITUARIESTV LISTINGS Comics faith Letters to the editor classi eds COUPONS celebrities local happenings BOOKS ALIVE HEATS UP FEATURE PAGE “Cheers to the chamber for new leadership and for selecting Steve as your Merriam award winner.
