County commissioners agreed Tuesday to inform Holiday Golf that it was canceling its contract in two weeks. The firm, which operates a course on the beach, had planned to operate the course through March 17. Commissioners said it is clear the course is a money-losing operation that would gobble up tax money the county doesn’t have, so they are encouraging organizations or golf management companies to put in a proposal to run the course. The county is offering the property it owns lease-free, and the operator would not be charged rent or required to post a bond the county previously had required. The course at 5304 Majette Tower Road opened in the early 1990s after it was built on top of a county landfill. The county recently asked anyone interested in leasing the property for free and operating the course without a county subsidy to submit a proposal, but no one responded. More than 50 golfers showed up Tuesday at the County Commission meeting to plead to keep the course open. They said Bay Dunes allows people with average incomes to play at a reasonable price. Charles Mitchell said numerous studies show that if seniors Bay Dunes set to close Private groups still invited to take over the golf course LONDON (AP) — Britain moved Tuesday toward allowing scientists to create humans from the DNA of three people. The technology aims to liberate future generations from inherited diseases, but critics say it crosses a fundamental scientific boundary and could lead to “designer babies.” The U.K.’s House of Commons voted 382178 in favor of legislation to license these experiments. If approved in the House of Lords, Britain would become the world’s first nation to allow genetic modifications in human embryos. “This is a bold step to take, but it is a considered and informed step,” Health Minister Jane Ellison told the Commons. The technology is completely different from that used to create genetically modified foods, where scientists typically select individual genes to be transferred from one species into another. But critics say it crosses a red line, since changes made to embryos will be passed on to future generations, with the potential for unforeseen consequences. While this legislation was drafted specifically to grant permission only for certain specified techniques, critics fear it will encourage scientists to push for other experiments in the future. The protests are “about protecting children from the severe health risks of these unnecessary techniques and protecting everyone from the eugenic designer-baby future that will follow from this,” said David King, director of the secular watchdog group Human Genetics Alert. The technology alters a human egg or embryo before transferring it into a mother with defects in her mitochondria, the energy-producing structures outside a cell’s nucleus. These genetic defects can result in diseases including muscular dystrophy, heart, kidney and liver failure and severe muscle weakness.

Only the truck survived. The truck was two blocks away from the twin towers when they fell and sustained only minor damage. Rescue Four was one of the New York Fire Department’s five rescue trucks. Rescue one and two were destroyed, and Rescue Three and Five were heavily damaged.

Page A2 | The News Herald | Wednesday, February 4, 2015 N ATI ON B riefs NEW YORK (AP) — “To Kill a Mockingbird” will not be Harper Lee’s only published book after all. Publisher Harper announced Tuesday that “Go Set a Watch man,” a novel the Pulitzer Prizewinning author completed in the 1950s and put aside, will be released July 14. Rediscovered last fall, “Go Set a Watchman” is essentially a sequel to “To Kill a Mockingbird,” although it was finished earlier. Reactions ranged from euphoria (Oprah Winfrey issued a state ment saying, “I couldn’t be happier if my name was Scout”) to skepti cism that the new book will be of the same qual ity as “Mockingbird.” Biographer Charles J. Shields noted that Lee was a “beginning author” when she wrote “Watchman.” The 304-page book will be Lee’s second, and her first new work in print in more than 50 years, among the longest gaps in history for a major writer. “In the mid-1950s, I completed a novel called ‘Go Set a Watchman,’ ” the 88-year-old Lee said. “It features the char acter known as Scout as an adult woman, and I thought it a pretty decent effort. My editor, who was taken by the flashbacks to Scout’s childhood, persuaded me to write a novel (what became ‘To Kill a Mockingbird’) from the point of view of the young Scout. “I was a first-time writer, so I did as I was told. I hadn’t realized it (the original book) had survived, so was surprised and delighted when my dear friend and lawyer Tonja Carter dis covered it. After much thought and hesitation, I shared it with a handful of people I trust and was pleased to hear that they considered it worthy of publica tion. I am humbled and amazed that this will now be published after all these years.” Second Harper Lee novel to be published in July HARPER LEE The Associated Press MONTGOMERY, Ala. A labama gay weddings could begin next week A federal appeals court on Tuesday cleared the way for same-sex marriages to begin Monday in Alabama, but the state’s attorney general made a last-ditch attempt to keep the weddings on hold. A three-judge panel of the 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals on Tuesday refused to delay a district judge’s decision that overturned Alabama’s gay marriage bans. That would appear to pave the way for Alabama to become the 37th state where gays can legally wed. “Finally, we’ve got to the point that all Alabama citizens are going to be treated equally,” said Christine Hernandez, a lawyer for the Mobile couple who challenged the Alabama laws. However, Attorney General Luther Strange asked the U.S. Supreme Court to halt the weddings until the justices settle the issue nationwide when they take up gay marriage later this year. “The confusion that has been created by the District Court’s ruling could linger for months until the U.S. Supreme Court resolves this issue once and for all,” Strange said. WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. Trial opens against mom accused of killing son A woman accused of killing her 5-year-old son by feeding him salt through a stomach tube calmly “watched and waited” for the poisoning to take effect, summoning help only after he began writhing and retching, a prosecutor said Tuesday. In her opening statement at the murder trial of Lacey Spears, Assistant District Attorney Doreen Lloyd said Spears researched, planned, carried out and tried to cover up the killing of her blond, blue-eyed son, Garnett-Paul. “It seems to go against nature,” the prosecutor said. “But Lacey Spears is not like most people.” She said Spears enjoyed the “attention and sympathy” she received from having a sick child. Spears, of Scottsville, Ky., had documented Garnett’s declining health on social media. She wiped away a tear as the prosecutor spoke. Defense lawyer Stephen Riebling told the jurors there are no eyewitnesses and no direct evidence that the 27-year-old Spears poisoned her son. He added: “There is no evidence in this case that legitimately answers the question ‘Why?’ ” WASHINGTON Deceived Corinthian students get loan break A federal regulator said Corinthian College students will be forgiven $480 million in loans because the forprofit school used “bogus” job prospects to persuade them to pay tuition with expensive private loans. The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau said tens of thousands of students received the loans, although it’s unclear how many will benefit from the forgiveness. More than 60 percent of Corinthian students with those loans defaulted within three years after being subject to interest rates that were about twice the rates for federal loans. “These consumers were lured into high-cost loans destined to default and then targeted with aggressive debt collection tactics,” said CFPB Director Richard Cordray. WASHINGTON (AP) — Newly empowered congressional Repub licans challenged President Barack Obama at both ends of the Capitol on Tuesday, lining up in the House to repeal the health care program he signed into law but faltering in an initial Senate attempt to roll back immigration policies he issued on his own. There was a third challenge as well, as Republican leaders announced the House would give final approval next week on legislation clearing the way for construction of the Keystone XL Pipeline. That would trig ger Obama’s threatened veto, the first in a new era of divided government. The skirmishes all seemed likely to end in eventual defeat for Republicans but served as a potent reminder of their power after Obama challenged them bluntly last month with his State of the Union address and a bal anced budget on Monday calling for higher taxes and new spend ing. The GOP won control of the Senate in last fall’s elections, and has its largest House majority in almost 70 years. The vote in the Senate was 51-48 to begin debate on legislation to fund the Depart ment of Homeland Security and simultaneously overturn presi dential executive orders that have spared an estimated four million immigrants in the country ille gally from the threat of depor tation. That was nine shy of the 60 needed to begin work on the measure. Senate Democratic Leader Harry Reid said his rank and file would continue to block action on the measure until Republicans agree to strip out the immigration provisions. Echoed by other Democrats, he said Republicans were “play ing politics with national security,” citing the execution-by-burning earlier in the day of a Jordanian pilot held hostage by Islamic ter rorists in the Middle East as evi dence of a threat. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky accused Obama of a “power grab” that exceeded his authority as president. “So I’m calling on Democrats to vote with us now to fund the Department of Homeland Security. I’m calling on Democrats to join us and stand up for core democratic principles like the rule of law and separation of powers,” he said. It was an offer they refused, unanimously. Fifty-one Repub licans voted to advance the bill, while all 44 Democrats, two inde pendents and two Republicans were opposed. The two GOP opponents included Sen. Dean Heller of Nevada, whose state is home to a large Hispanic popula tion, and McConnell, whose vote will permit him to call for a revote in the future. The Department of Homeland Security will lose a portion of its funding on Feb. 27 unless Con gress has acted by then. Rhetoric aside, the vote appeared to be part of a delicate dance in which the Senate GOP leadership, knowing it lacked the votes to prevail, wanted to demonstrate as much to antiimmigration lawmakers who helped pass the measure through the House last month. The pro visions that drew objections from Democrats would roll back administration policies that shield millions of immigrants from the threat of deportation even if they are in the country illegally, and also give protection to younger immigrants brought to the coun try unlawfully by their parents. AP Speaker of the House John Boehner, R-Ohio, joined by House Rules Committee member Rep. Virginia Foxx, R-N.C., center, and newly elected Rep. Barbara Comstock, R-Va., says the House will vote today to repeal the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, following a GOP strategy session on Capitol Hill in Washington.

(AP) — Bottles of Walmart-brand echinacea, an herb said to ward off colds, were found to contain no echinacea at all. GNC-brand bottles of St. John’s wort, touted as a cure for depression, held rice, garlic and a tropical houseplant, but not a trace of the herb. In fact, DNA testing on hundreds of bottles of storebrand herbal supplements sold as treatments for everything from memory loss to prostate trouble found that four out of five contained none of the herbs on the label. Instead, they were packed with cheap fillers such as wheat, rice, beans or houseplants. Based on the testing commissioned by his office, New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman said Tuesday he has sent letters to the four major store chains involved — GNC, Target, Walmart and Walgreens — demanding that they immediately stop selling adulterated or mislabeled dietary supplements. Schneiderman said the supplements pose serious risks. People who have allergies or are taking certain medications can suffer dangerous reactions from substances not listed on the label, he said. “This investigation makes one thing abundantly clear: The old adage ‘buyer beware’ may be especially true for consumers of herbal supplements,” the attorney general said. The herbal supplement industry criticized the method used to analyze the samples and raised questions about the reliability of the findings. Walmart spokesman Brian Nick said the company is reaching out to suppliers and will take appropriate action. Walgreen pledged to cooperate with the attorney general, who asked the store chains for detailed information on production and quality control. “We take these issues very seriously and as a precautionary measure, we are in the process of removing these products from our shelves as we review this matter further,” Walgreen spokesman James Graham said. GNC said it, too, will cooperate, but spokeswoman Laura Brophy said: “We stand by the quality, purity and potency of all ingredients listed on the labels of our private-label products.” Target said it can’t comment without reviewing the full report. Nutritionist David Schardt of the Center for Science in the Public Interest said the tests show the supplement industry is in urgent need of reform, and until that happens, consumers should stop wasting their money. The Food and Drug Administration requires companies to verify their products are safe and properly labeled. But supplements are exempt from the FDA’s strict approval process for prescription drugs. Schneiderman said tests found no echinacea or any other plant material in bottles of Walmart’s Spring Valley Echinacea. He said no ginseng was found in 20 tests of GNC’s Herbal Plus Ginseng, taken to boost energy. Other supplements tested included garlic, which is said to boost immunity and prevent heart disease; ginkgo biloba, often touted as a memory-booster; and saw palmetto, promoted as a prostate treatment.

Jordan threatened a harsh response to the killing of Lt. Muath Al-Kaseasbeh, 26, who fell into the hands of the militants in December when his F-16 crashed near Raqqa, Syria, the de facto capital of the group’s self-styled caliphate. He was the only pilot from the U.S.-led coalition to have been captured to date. King Abdullah II of Jordan, who is in Washington, spoke on Jordan TV, urging all Jordanians to unite. Confirming the pilot’s death, the king said “it’s the duty of all of us to stand united and show the real values of Jordanians in the face of these hardships.” However, in the pilot’s home village of Ai, violent protests erupted and a local government office was set on fire. Witnesses said the situation was tense and riot police were patrolling the streets. At a tribal meeting place where the pilot’s relatives have waited for weeks for word on his fate, family members wept when receiving word of the pilot’s death. The video appeared aimed at pressuring Jordan to leave the coalition that has been battling to roll back the Islamic State group. Jordan’s king, a close Western ally, has portrayed the campaign against the extremists as a battle over values, but the airstrikes against fellow Muslims are not popular in Jordan. Jordanian government officials have said the country’s continued participation in the coalition is assured. Officials said the killing of the pilot would only toughen Jordan’s stance. LT.

They said there might be people who didn’t know about it, and that the Christmas season was a bad time for the county to advertise the proposal. “This is a sad day for Bay County golfers, espe cially seniors, the military, our veterans and the other groups that play at Bay Dunes,” said Bill Ronk, an avid golfer at the course and member of the county’s Parks & Recreation Advisory Board. “I think those that made the decision to close the course believed that it was the right choice, but I do not believe enough effort was made to find a possible solution to keep the course open.” Bay County was planning to shut down the course in early December, but commissioners instead decided to hire Holiday Golf Course to operate it with a subsidy of $25,000 a month for three months. That was to give county officials time to gauge the course’s finances and advertise for a golf manage ment company to take it over. Tony Ray had operated the course since 2011, but could not obtain a $25,000 bond the county required. Now that commissioners have agreed to not require a bond, Commissioner Mike Thomas said he would encourage Ray to resume running the course if the bond was truly his only reason for closing down. Ray could not be reached for comment Tuesday. Ed Blockinger said the course is an attraction that brings in out-of-town visitors who spend money in local restaurants and other businesses. “If Bay Dunes closes, it would be an economic major hit for Bay County and surrounding areas,” he said. But Scott Richter said a county subsidy of a golf course shouldn’t even be discussed, considering that the county recently increased property taxes and residents on the county’s retail utility system have seen their rates nearly double in the last year. “We’re talking about keeping a golf course open when we have families who can’t pay their water bills,” he said. However, Carolyn Rossmann, an avid golfer at Bay Dunes, said the recreational budget is differ ent from the utility budget and the funds cannot be intertwined. “If you were to close all the ballparks in the county, that is still not going to affect your water bill,” she said. Like libraries and parks, the golf course is a rec reational amenity and “should be eligible for some of the public funding as well,” Rossmann said. She named other municipal golf courses throughout the country that she said have been quite successful. Commissioners decided no subsidy would be offered if someone takes over the course. Interim County Manager Dan Shaw said golf course maintenance experts have said it would take $700,000 to bring Bay Dunes up to speed. But Rossmann said, “The golf course is playable as it is now.” She said the course does need some work and suggested that be paid for over the next two to four years.

At a firefighters’ conven tion two years ago, Parris met with representatives of the Remembrance Rescue Project, a nonprofit organi zation in Chicago formed to acquire and preserve Res cue Four and Rescue Five as educational tools. Since then, Parris has worked to bring the his toric trucks to Panama City Beach. Although he had hoped to do so in Sep tember to coincide with the stair climb, the two trucks are very much in demand in September, Parris said. Parris picked up the “rolling memorial” himself Saturday on Interstate 10. He’s planned several local events to showcase the vehicle, including a First Responder Appreciation Night at the Pier Park Grand Theatre on Feb. 21. Any fire fighter from any department can attend a screening of the Denis Leary-produced documentary “Burn,” but they must contact Parris to get on the list. The first chance for the public to see Rescue Four will be from 1-6 p.m. Sat urday at the Wal-Mart on Front Beach Road, Parris said. Rescue Four will be at the Back Beach Road WalMart on Feb. 14, but Parris said the viewing hours are being worked out for that event.

Commuter train strikes vehicle on tracks; 6 dieVA L HA LL A, N.Y. (AP) — A commuter train slammed into a sport utility vehicle stuck on the tracks Tuesday evening, killing six people, mostly on the train, and injuring at least 12 others, authorities said. The northbound train struck a Jeep Cherokee at a railroad crossing in Valhalla, about 20 miles north of New York City, Metro-North Railroad spokesman Aaron Donovan said. Killed were the SUV’s driver and five people aboard the train, he said. The railroad track gates had come down on top of the SUV, which was stopped on the tracks, the Metro-North spokesman said. The driver got out to look at the rear of the vehicle, then she got back in and drove forward and was struck, he said. The train shoved the SUV about 10 train car lengths north, and the SUV and the front of the train caught fire, he said. Smoke poured out of the scorched rail car, its windows blackened. Passenger Stacey Eisner, who was at the rear of the train, said she felt the train “jerk” and then a conductor walked through the train explaining what had happened. She said her train car was evacuated about 10 minutes later using ladders to get people out. The rail passengers were moved to the rear of the train, which had left Grand Central Terminal about 45 minutes earlier. Passengers got off from the rear of the train. About 400 of them were taken to a local rock climbing gym for shelter. Buses were heading there to pick them up and take them to their destinations. Service on MetroNorth’s Harlem Line has been suspended between Pleasantville and North White Plains. Metro-North is the nation’s second-busiest railroad, after the Long Island Rail Road. It was formed in 1983 and serves about 280,000 riders a day in New York and Connecticut.

Wednesday, February 4, 2015 | The News Herald | Page A5 Business “I look aroundleaves are brown And the skyis a hazy shade of winter Hang on to your hopes, my friend.” “Hazy Shade of Winter” as performed by Simon and Garfunkel Every winter some of the world’s leading economists conference in Davos, Switzerland. And while ensconced in this ritzy resort, some will pontificate. Like investment advisor and billionaire Jeff Greene. Greene’s recent pronouncement? We are all living too high on the hog, and we all need to cut back on consumption. Here’s the exact quote from Forbes Magazine: “America’s lifestyle expectations are far too high and need to be adjusted so we have less things and a smaller, better existence. We need to reinvent our whole system of life.” Well, as my dad used to say, “Now wait a minute.” Whose carbon footprint is Greene referring to? Is he talking about our hollowed out middle class, where many folks are working minimum wage jobs? What are these folks “consuming” that they should cut back on? Many Americans aren’t “overconsuming,” they’re just trying to survive. Or was Greene talking to his ultra-wealthy peers, folks who move in his own economic circle? I hope so. For them, smaller may indeed be better. Here’s the rub: Greene arrived in Davos in a private jet, with two nannies attending to his children. He currently owns five homes, one of which is a 63,000-square-foot mansion in Beverly Hills. And he spent a cool million on his wedding. Greene has yet to upgrade his boat, though. He’s still making do with a 145-foot yacht docked in the Hamptons. One fill-up for the boat costs $100,000. To quote a famous movie about overconsumption and greed (for fun, let’s just call it “Wall Street”), “How much is enough, Gordon? How many yachts can you water-ski behind?” How does one tell the masses with a straight face to trim the fat from their personal budgets, while one’s own lifestyle is almost a parody of jet-set excess? I’m sorry, it’s just incongruous. Greene has no doubt worked hard to achieve status and wealth. And that is certainly admirable. He has the same free speech rights as everyone else. And yes, much of what he is saying has merit. But here’s a free tip: next time you instruct the middle class on cutting back, keep your private jet in the hangar. There already is considerable resentment by those struggling in the current economy of those with remarkable wealth. When you make Greene’s salary, it’s easy to fall out of touch with those whose paycheck doesn’t include the same number of zeroes. For many folks in today’s economy, consumption simply means covering the bare necessities, which are not something that can be cut back on. Margaret R.

And it’s betting people will pay twice as much for it. The national rollout of Fairlife over the next several weeks marks Coca-Cola’s entry into the milk case in the U.S. and is one way the world’s biggest beverage maker is diversifying its offerings as Americans continue turning away from soft drinks. It also comes as people increasingly seek out some type of functional boost from their foods and drinks, whether it’s more fiber, antioxidants or protein. That has left the door open for Coke to step into the milk category, where the differences between options remain relatively minimal and consumption has been declining for decades. “It’s basically the premiumization of milk,” Sandy Douglas, president of CocaCola North America, said at an analyst conference in November. If developed properly, Douglas said it is the type of product that “rains money.” Fairlife, which Coca-Cola formed in partnership with dairy cooperative Select Milk Producers in 2012, says its milk goes through a filtration process that’s akin the way skim milk is made. Filters are used to separate the various components in milk. Then, more of the favorable components are added, while the less desirable ones are kept out. The result is a drink that Fairlife says is lactose free and has 50 percent more protein, 30 percent more calcium and 50 percent less sugar than regular milk. The same process is used make Fairlife’s Core Power, a drink marketed to athletes that has even more protein and calcium than Fairlife milk. Sue McCloskey, who developed the system used to make Fairlife with her husband Mike McCloskey, said Fairlife will be marketed more broadly to women who are the “gatekeepers” for their families’ nutritional needs. Even while touting its nutritional advantages, however, Fairlife will need to be careful about communicating how its drink is made. Jonas Feliciano, senior beverage analyst for market researcher Euromonitor, noted people want drinks that “do something for me,” but that Fairlife’s juiced-up nutritional stats may make people hesitant about how natural it is. Coke bets on super milk: more protein, less sugar BURBANK, Calif. (AP) — Disney might be lapping the hugely successful theatrical release of “Frozen,” but magic lives on in its media networks and parks and resorts. Revenue from Disney parks and resorts rose 9 percent to $3.9 billion in the last three months of 2014, as more people visited its California and Florida properties than in any quarter and spent more money there. Strong results from the parks, Disney Channels and sales of “Frozen” merchandise drove earnings up 19 percent. The Walt Disney Co.’s profit and revenue topped expectations for the first quarter. Shares rose over 4 percent in aftermarket trading. Even a year after “Frozen” was released, sales of toys and other merchandise drove a 22 percent jump in consumer products sales to $1.4 billion. Revenue from the company’s media networks was another strong point, jumping 11 percent to $5.86 billion on strength from cable networks such as Disney Channels and ABC Family. Broadcasting revenue rose on sales of shows including “Criminal Minds” and “Scandal.” ESPN revenue fell, hurt by higher rates to broadcast NFL games and lower ratings for certain programs. Movie studios, TV networks and cable and satellite providers alike are grappling with a changing media industry as more people watch TV and movies online and via streaming services like Netflix and Hulu. Dish last month launched a streaming-only option, Sling TV, that bundles Disney’s ESPN sports network with the Disney Channel and a handful of other cable networks. Iger said in a call with analysts that he doesn’t have data yet on how many customers Dish has sold Sling TV to, and whether those customers are switching from cable or previously had no service. The company could consider selling a Disney-branded streaming-only option directly to customers, such as its ESPN channel, a Marvel “type product” or even Star Wars. But the time isn’t now, he said. ‘Frozen’, parks keep Disney revenues up CEO SAYS MEASLES OUTBREAK NOT HURTING ATTENDANCE NEW YORK (AP) — Walt Disney Co. CEO Bob Iger says the measles outbreak is having no discernible impact on attendance at its parks and resorts. In an interview with CNBC on Tuesday, Iger said in the current quarter both attendance and bookings are higher than at the same time last year. He did say parents with children under the age for inoculation should be cautious about bringing them to any large public place like Disneyland, including mass transportation and movie theaters. By VALERIE GARMAN 747-5076 | @valeriegarman PANAMA CITY — Plans for a new shopping center are in the works for a piece of property pegged as Panama City’s “most desirable” commercial location. An investment group closed on the sale of the 35-acre lot at the southwest corner of State 77 and 23rd Street last week, purchasing the property for $7.7 million with the help of Jim Everitt of Counts Real Estate Group, who handled the sale. “This is the most desirable commercial site in Panama City,” Everitt said. “Every major retail company in the country, every major developer in the country ... and many Realtors in the Southeast over the decades have tried to do a deal on this property and it just never was available.” The property, across from the Panama City Mall, previously was owned by the Hawkins family, who ran an automotive salvage business on the site for many years. The site had been listed on the market for about two years. “It’s at the corner of Main, Main and Main,” Everitt said. “All the commercial activity is in that general area.” According to Everitt, the new owners plan to bring in several major retailers and restaurants not currently operating in the Panama City market for the center, which is expected to be named “Hawkins Point.” The purchaser, Hawkins Point Investors, now is in the process of permitting and negotiating with potential tenants and expects to have an initial announcement within the next few months, followed by land clearing and construction. Everitt described the sale as a big win for Panama City, which has seen several major retailers migrate across the bridge to Panama City Beach in recent years. “Panama City was taking the brunt of the businesses moving to the beach; the beach was reaping the benefits,” he said. “The real story is, I think you’ll find there are tenants moving to the beach that will move back in town.” While the beach continues to attract more and more visitors every year, Panama City’s population remains higher year-round. “I think the tenants have gotten caught up in the glitter of tourism,” Everitt said. “Would you go on vacation and go to Michael’s? Probably not.” New retail center coming to ‘desirable’ location PATTI BLAKE | The News Herald A sign on the corner of 23rd Street and State 77 shows the section of land has been sold.


Page A6 | The News Herald | Wednesday, February 4, 2015 Viewpoints Our V IEW Tim Thompson, Publisher Mike Cazalas, Editor S. Brady Calhoun, Editorial Page Editor 747-5075 | @sbradycalhoun T hey say crime doesn’t pay — unless, that is, you are a law enforcement agency that profits from seizing the property of suspected criminals. Civil asset forfeiture laws allow the government to take cash, cars, boats, homes and other property suspected of being involved in criminal activity. The emphasis is on “suspected,” because unlike criminal forfeiture, civil forfeiture does not require that the property owner even be charged with a crime to permanently lose his property. Law enforcement agencies auction off the seized property and keep most or all of the proceeds for their own use, such as for purchasing equipment. This creates a perverse incentive for law enforcement to aggressively pursue civil forfeiture — what critics have dubbed “policing for profit” — which can lead to abuses of individuals’ property and due process rights. Civil forfeiture grew in popularity with the War on Drugs, but has since expanded to encompass a variety of (alleged) crimes. According to the Cato Institute, a libertarian think tank in Washington, Justice Department seizures went from $27 million in 1985 to $556 million in 1993 to almost $4.2 billion in 2012. And since 2001, the federal government has seized $2.5 billion without either bringing a criminal action or issuing a warrant. The practice is particularly popular at the state level. In the 1990s, then-Volusia County Sheriff Bob Vogel gained national attention for his department’s aggressive use of property seizures along Interstate 95. His department seized $6.5 million in cash from cars — 90 percent of which were being driven by AfricanAmericans or Hispanics. In three-fourths of the cases, no charges were filed. The feds provide increased incentive for civil forfeiture through its “equitable sharing” program, in which Washington invites state law enforcement to turn seized assets over to the federal government; thus, the forfeiture is made under federal law. The federal government then offers to share up to 80 percent of the proceeds with cooperating state and local law enforcement. Property owners can contest the seizures, but the government’s burden of proof often is lower than in criminal cases. For instance, the standard of evidence in Florida is “clear and convincing,” which is less than “beyond a reasonable doubt” employed in some states, but above “preponderance of the evidence” or “probable cause” used in others. Most states require property owners to prove their innocence. That’s if the owners even sue to regain their property. According to the American Civil Liberties Union, many people can’t afford to hire a lawyer to contest the seizures, and for those who can the fight often costs more than the value of the property seized. Thankfully, there is movement on civil forfeiture reform. U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder recently announced the Justice Department would limit the “equitable sharing” program. The DOJ acknowledges that the new restrictions would have affected only about 3 percent of the value of all forfeitures over the last six years. Still, it’s a step in the right direction, and the move brings needed national attention to the issue. In Florida, whose civil asset forfeiture law earned a “D” grade from the Institute of Justice, a property rights public-interest law firm, Sen. Jeff Brandes, R-St. Petersburg, has indicated he will pursue reform in the upcoming legislative session. He says he would like to see proceeds from seizures go to charity, city and county governments or the state’s general revenue funds so as to remove the incentive from law enforcement to seize property for its own gain. He also says he might seek to require a conviction before police can seize property. Taking property that is used in the commission of a crime or is the fruit of such activity can be a legitimate exercise. But it must be done with streamlined due process, a high standard of evidence for government and without the incentives to tailor law enforcement activities toward boosting revenues.

To call it a coherent “policy,” for that matter, is a gut-busting exaggeration. It’s a bloody, incompetent and treacherous disaster. Our military heroes and families, God bless them, refuse to stay silent about the consequences. Consider these three national security fiascos: 1. Washington is awash in conflicting reports this week that the Pentagon may — or may not — charge Taliban tool Bowe Bergdahl with desertion. I first reported on Bergdahl’s betrayal and abandonment of his post in July 2009. A military source tells me that the Obama administration has “slow rolled” the investigation and prosecution — while withholding vital intelligence gathered from Bergdahl’s debriefing last summer. As the Obama administration dithers on the desertion charges, at least one of the five Taliban terrorists the president exchanged for Bergdahl has reportedly returned to jihad. The news comes this week as the White House adamantly refuses to call the Taliban a terrorist group. Former Army Ranger and sniper Nicholas Irving, who served in Afghanistan when Bergdahl went AWOL, minced no words. “I think he should definitely be put to death. He’s given a lot of information to the enemy, and he should pay the price,” Irving told radio host Howie Carr. 2. While Bergdahl enjoys a desk job, two promotions, back pay and bonuses, and personal security, a real American hero in uniform is fighting for his reputation and his military career after warning colleagues of an insider attack on an American base in the Helmand province. In 2012, Maj. Jason Brezler, a highly decorated Marine reserve civil affairs officer, sent a classified document through his personal email account to fellow Marines at Forward Operating Base Delhi. The correspondence, which came in response to a FOB Dehli Marine’s request for information, involved the shady history of Taliban-tied Afghan police chief and accused drug lord and child molester Sarwar Jan. Jan had been suspected of coordinating Taliban operations, selling Afghan police uniforms to our enemies, and raping at least nine boys on base. A few weeks after Brezler’s warning, which went unheeded, one of Jan’s teenage “tea boys” went on a shooting spree at FOB Dehli. Marine Staff Sgt. Cody Rhode was shot five times, but survived. Three others died of gun shot wounds: Staff Sgt. Scott Dickinson, Cpl. Richard Rivera and Lance Cpl. Greg Buckley. Buckley’s relatives filed suit against the government last fall over what they believe has been a coordinated and illegal attempt to suppress details of the insider attack. Meanwhile, Brezler is in court this week fighting military brass — irked by bad publicity — who’ve tried to railroad him despite his exemplary service. Obama military leaders want to force him to undergo an involuntary “separation” even though three Marine commands and the Naval Criminal Investigative Service all recommended no action. His pro bono lawyer, Kevin Carroll, summed up the appalling injustice in Brezler’s latest court filing before a hearing scheduled for Friday: Our “Marines were murdered by a ‘chai boy’ brought onto the base by a corrupt Afghan police chief who was a well-known threat, and whom Jason Brezler had not only previously removed from another command but also warned the FOB Delhi command about two weeks before the murders. The Marine Corps has never honored laws compelling it to disclose all documents and information concerning these murders to the Gold-Star families of those murdered Marines.” Last week, the Marine Corps Times revealed that security lapses at FOB Delhi were the result of politically correct management. In order to soothe sensitive Afghans who were offended by the presence of armed guards, an internal investigation found, “Marine officials had resorted to a more subtle overwatch.” Or rather, no watch. The guards were absent when Jan’s tea boy attacked. Marines died, and the only person at risk of losing his job is Brezler, the brave whistleblower. 3. The cover-up and lack of accountability over an insider attack in Afghanistan are familiar story lines to the families of the two dead American Marines and 17 servicemen wounded in the Sept. 14, 2012, Taliban attack on Camp Bastion in Afghanistan. Deborah Hatheway, aunt of fallen Sgt. Bradley Atwell, wrote me this week with an update. “The surviving insurgent/ terrorist, Mohammed Nazeer,” was “convicted and sentenced” in the Afghan court system, she reported, but “we are not sure at this time when the execution will take place or if it has already. ... We filed a complaint about the handling of this matter and that we should have been made aware of the progress of this all along. “Michelle, you would be amazed and shocked over such extreme gross negligence. ... It is so shameful that the brass are nothing but a bunch of performing monkeys in a circus! I have come to realize that (those) high up the command chain only care about their promotions and saving their asses.” The troops-endangering treachery rots from the head down. Have you ever seen 2 million pounds of red snapper? Me neither, but I bet it is a sight to behold, and thanks to advocates of science and accountable management practices, fishermen in the Gulf are going to get the chance to see just that much more snapper in 2015. That is because last week the Gulf of Mexico Fishery Management Council initiated action to increase the total allowable catch of red snapper. Everyone can agree that the Gulf red snapper stock has come a long way since it almost collapsed in the 1990s. After decades of overfishing and ineffective management, the fishery underwent some contentious management changes in order to try to rebuild the stock. The results have been remarkable. It’s easy to see this good news and forget how much work we have left in front of us. We have more than 15 years until we’ll see a red snapper population comparable to the one we had half a century ago. We have had some strong years of rebuilding, but many of the fish that make up our current snapper population are young and need years to grow before they are able to reproduce at significant rates. We should be proud of the progress we have made, but we are at an inflection point in the rebuilding timeline. From here, we must continue to improve management and ensure long-term sustainability. Bad management decisions or inaction at this point could reverse the momentum we have created. The commercial fishery has kept its annual catch within its limits for many years now, and catch-share management has allowed commercial fishermen to fish year-round and build stable businesses as the stock rebuilds. However, broken management in the recreational fishery has led to persistent overages and kept anglers from experiencing better fishing opportunities even as millions of pounds have been added to their total allowable catch over the past seven years. This year’s increase will likely add minimal days to the 2015 federal recreational season as well. These shorter federal seasons have led states to abandon federal regulations in their waters, further contributing to the confusion and chaos. Red snapper fishing has become a political hot button. Some members of the Gulf Council continue to fuel this chaos by promoting false promises in the form of a proposal that would take fish that would normally be shared between the commercial and recreational sector and giving it all to the recreational industry. More fish will not solve the problems facing recreational fishermen. The increases over the last several years have not helped prevent overages. Changing the broken management system in the recreational sector is the only way to provide better fishing opportunities to the Gulf’s anglers. The council should continue to build on its actions late last year, when it officially split the recreational fishery into two components — for-hire and private anglers. This action is a positive first step and offers both components a chance to find a way to manage their fishery that works for them. The needs of charter captains are different than those of us who fish for fun. While we all need predictability, their livelihoods depend on it, and management should acknowledge that difference. Over the coming months, the Gulf Council should explore all the management options in front of them and look to the the Gulf Headboat Collaborative pilot program as a model for how to increase flexibility for for-hire operators and ensure sustainability. Individual anglers require a different approach, and the Gulf States may be better equipped to manage their needs given the right management tools. The Gulf Council should explore a regional management option for private anglers that provide states the freedom to deploy management approaches that work better for anglers, but still keep each state within its set limit. If we could accomplish that goal, all three sectors in the red snapper fishery would be under accountable management and this iconic and tasty species might recover even faster. I hope we can all move past the politics, rhetoric and false promises to chart a path forward this year. Let’s seize the momentum of the rebuilding red snapper stock and find a way to end the overages in the recreational sector so that we can accelerate the recovery of the species for everyone to enjoy for generations to come.

The case is linked to the arrest of three men in Ottawa last month. It involves alleged recruiting for the Islamic State group and Canadian John Maguire, a fighter who appeared in an IS propaganda video overseas and who reportedly might have been killed recently. Police announced they arrested Awso Peshdary, 25, and charged him with participation in the activity of a terrorist group and with facilitating an activity for a terrorist group. The Royal Canadian Mounted Police also laid terrorism charges in absentia against Khadar Khalib, 23, and Maguire, 24. Both traveled to Syria or Iraq and remain at large. RCMP Chief Superintendent Jennifer Strachan said while there have been recent reports saying Maguire was killed in Syria, the RCMP has not received conclusive evidence confirming he is deceased. A senior police official said Peshdary, the man arrested in Ottawa, was the subject of a prior police terror investigation but said police didn’t have enough evidence to arrest him then. The official spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak ahead of the planned announcement Tuesday. The Associated Press first released details of the arrest and charges against the three men. Suliman Mohamed, 21, was charged last month with participating in a terrorist group. That arrest occurred just days after twin brothers linked to Mohamed, Ashton Carleton Larmond and Carlos Larmond, were charged with terrorism-related offences. Carlos Larmond was arrested at Montreal’s airport on charges of intending to travel overseas for terrorist purposes. A separate government official familiar with the matter said the brothers were trying to get to Syria. The official earlier confirmed the latest charges includes an arrest and also involved people who are outside Canada. WASHINGTON (AP) — A bill aimed at reducing a suicide epi demic among military veterans is on its way to the president for his signature. The Senate unanimously approved a bill Tuesday named for Clay Hunt, a 26-year-old Iraq and Afghanistan veteran who killed himself in 2011. The bill comes in response to suicides that on aver age claim the lives of 22 military veterans every day. White House spokesman Josh Earnest said President Barack Obama strongly supports the bill and will sign it. The Senate vote on the bill was 99-0. Sen. Mark Kirk, R-Ill., missed the vote because of a winter storm that delayed flights from Chicago. Kirk is a co-sponsor of the bill and would have voted yes, a spokes woman said. The House passed the bill unanimously last month. The measure would require the Pentagon and Veterans Affairs Department to submit to indepen dent reviews of their suicide preven tion programs and offers financial incentives to psychiatrists and other mental health professionals who agree to work for the VA. It also would help military members as they transition from active duty to veteran status. Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., said he was proud the Senate voted “to enhance the care we provide our men and women in uniform who continue to battle the lasting wounds of war.” “Our nation has much work still to do to fulfill its responsibilities for our veterans, and this bill is an important step in improving life-saving mental health care services for the men and women who have served and sacri ficed,” McCain said. Clay Hunt’s mother, Susan Selke of Houston, said Hunt’s family was grateful for the Senate’s vote to approve the bill and for the work by lawmakers from both parties and both chambers to ensure its passage. “While we are a little bitter sweet, because it is too late for our son Clay, we are thankful know ing that this bill will save many lives,” Selke said in a statement. “No veteran should have to wait or go through bureaucratic red tape to get the mental health care they earned during their selfless service to our country. While this legislation is not a 100 percent solution, it is a huge step in the right direction.” Paul Rieckhoff, CEO and founder of the Iraq and Afghani stan Veterans of America, an advo cacy group that pushed for the bill, called Senate passage “a tremen dous day” for veterans and their families. “For too long the crisis of vet eran suicide has been hidden in the shadows. This bill gives many veterans the new hope they so des perately need and demonstrates that our leaders are willing to give veterans the care they deserve,” Rieckhoff said. John Stroud, national com mander of the Veterans of Foreign Wars of the United States, said the bill strengthens and expands the mental health programs and ser vices available to service members and veterans. Even so, the VFW is concerned that some service members are being kicked out of the military for pre-existing mental health prob lems without first being properly diagnosed or treated, “meaning they could easily be denied critical VA care and benefits after they are discharged,” Stroud said. Bill to address veterans’ suicide heads to White House AP Army veteran David Dickerson of Oklahoma City, Okla., joins others at the National Mall in Washington on March 27 to place 1,892 flags representing veteran and service members who have died by suicide. HAVANA (AP) — Cuba has pub lished the first photos of Fidel Castro in more than five months, showing the 88-year-old former leader engaged in what appears to be a lively conversa tion with a university student. Nearly two dozen images were pub lished virtually simultaneously on the websites of Cuba’s main state media outlets around midnight Monday. In them, Castro is seated and discussing current events with the head of the main Cuban student union. A first-per son account by student leader Randy Perdomo Garcia says the meeting took place on Jan. 23. The photos are the first images of the revolutionary leader since a set of photos came out in August showing him talking with Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro. Perdomo said that he and Castro met for more than three hours in the former leader’s house after an event celebrating the 70th anniversary of Castro starting his studies at the Uni versity of Havana. The student leader said Castro said that he is keeping abreast of the news and performing daily exercises, and he engaged Perdomo in a wide-ranging discussion of topics including inter national politics, agriculture, astron omy, and even Namibia’s donation of animals to Cuba’s National Zoo. Perdomo said the two men dis cussed the release of three Cuban intelligence agents as part of the Dec. 17 declaration by Cuba and the United States that they would move to reestablish full diplomatic relations. The photos show Castro examining a newspaper report on their release. “He’s full of life, he keeps up his exercises and he reads closely,” Per domo told The Associated Press on Tuesday. He said that Castro rose from his seat without help, read several articles without help and remembered details of past events with astonishing recall.

Food B Section panamacitynewsherald Twitter: @The_News_Herald PANAMA CITY NEWS HERALD WEDNESDAY February 4, 2015 By JAN WADDY 747-5072 | @JanWaddy1 PANAMA CITY — With a few herbs hanging on in the backyard and the same meals showing up on the table week after week, it was time for a “Greek Revival” in our home. Patricia Moore-Pastides shares tips on how to grow your own ingredients and provides 50 fresh recipes in her award-winning “Greek Revival from the Garden: Growing and Cooking for Life” (University of South Carolina Press, 2013), a companion to her “Greek Revival: Cooking for Life.” The First Lady of the University of South Carolina, where she teaches healthy Mediterranean cooking classes, invites the public to share in her “Simple and Delicious Path to Better Health and Sustainability” during BooksAlive on Saturday at Florida State University-Panama City. “I didn’t come to writing about food because I’m a chef or anything, but because my background is in public health, so I knew the traditional Mediterranean diet was one of the healthiest on the planet,” said MoorePastides, who has a master’s in public health from Yale University. “This kind of cooking is easy and it doesn’t use a lot of ingredients.” Having a “Greek Revival” is more than just picking up a cookbook and trying recipes, it’s a manual to a lifestyle transformation that starts from the ground up. Moore-Pastides sought the counsel of Charlie Ryan, chief horticulturist at the University of South Carolina President’s House. She gives steps on how to grow vegetables in containers, raised beds or in the yard. “Container gardens are fun for younger people. Schools now have gardens, but they’re also great for college students moving into apartments. ... And nice for newlyweds who have a home and want to start a little garden,” she added. She even offers suggestions for specialty herb gardens, salad bowl gardens, even pizza gardens. “We all tend to go in the market and buy the same vegetables every week and cook them the same way every week,” said Moore-Pastides, who also teaches adults and children through Columbia’s Cooking!, a community program offered by the university’s Cancer Prevention and Control Program. “I discovered people are eating out so much they are far away from growing their own vegetables and preparing dishes. I felt there was a need to growing our own vegetables and cooking them. I knew if they got excited about growing them they’d be more excited about trying them.” Though the recipe photos by Keith McGraw, photographer and tastetester, are works of art, this is not a coffee table book. In less than two weeks, the pages of Katie’s Classic Eggplant Parmesan already have the remnants of olive oil and bread crumbs. Since I didn’t have three homegrown Ichiban Japanese eggplants in my garden, I substituted one large eggplant from the grocery store. “I just made eggplant with my class. We bought from the supermarket because our garden is slim at the moment, but the recipe works really differently with smaller vegetables from the garden,” Moore-Pastides said. “Usually the supermarket ones are so big, kind of on the dry side. It can be really bitter, but the salt lets the water come out and helps get rid of the bitterness.” One large eggplant gave me 24 rounds, which I salted and set aside in a colander. After 30 minutes, no water was noticeably draining until I patted them with paper towels. The result of the cooked eggplant was slightly crisp on the outside and tender inside, but not mushy. They had so much flavor they didn’t need anything. I really liked the fresh parsley, which was still bright green after cooking. When I reheated them later, I ate them as an appetizer dipped in ranch dressing. “Ranch was my niece’s suggestion,” Moore-Pastides admitted. “It is not really Mediterranean, but I am trying to appeal to an audience who likes ranch dressing and this is a step in the right direction with fresh ingredients.” The Yogurt Ranch Dressing also was amazing for carrots. I forgot to get green onions from my garden, but it was still wonderful with the fresh herbs and bites of garlic. Impatient, I didn’t drain the nonfat yogurt or let it sit 30 minutes after it was finished before I first tried it. Though it was good, it would have been thicker and held up better if I had used a finemesh sieve. If you don’t know what a sieve looks like, there is a section with names and pictures of cooking equipment. “I recognized I had college students who didn’t know what kitchen equipment was, so I decided to write the book pretty basic for novices of all ages,” Moore-Pastides added. She strains the nonfat yogurt because it will continue to separate, but if you want to skip straining, she suggests nonfat Greek yogurt. The Chunky Savory Tomato Sauce also is suggested for serving over Eggplant Parmesan. The sauce was really thick, so my husband added a little water to it. Despite its appearance though, it was deliciously juicy and packed with flavor — tangy, salty, smoky and garlicky with a little spice, over pasta. “It gets really concentrated. Fresh tomatoes tend to be a little dry this time of year,” said Moore-Pastides, who suggests using a carton of Pomi tomatoes when they are not in season. “You do find that if you go out in the garden and pick those tomatoes they are moister. I love the oregano flavor with that sauce. We use it all the time BOOKS ALIVE 2015 What: 16th annual festival of reading and writers with guest authors Mary Alice Monroe, Olivia deBelle Byrd, Chervis Isom, Marjory Wentworth, Carolyn McKinstry, Patricia Moore-Pastides, Michael Morris, and Paul Leonard (executive director of Habitat for Humanity); keynote speakers Bill Curry and Carolyn Curry; presented by the Bay County Public Library Foundation.

Some of the roasted yellow squash got a little brown on the edges for a little sweetness. My husband and 8-year-old son liked this recipe as much as I did. “You could do any vegetable that way. Just slice it up and put on the olive oil. Wait until you bring it out to salt or it will be more steamed. Roasting it caramelizes and turns it a little brown. You can do eggplant like that. I just usually brush eggplant with olive oil and put it under the broiler in the oven.” Test a couple of OvenBaked Kale Chips with Sesame Seeds before baking a whole batch to be sure they don’t brown. Six minutes was a little too long, but it didn’t stop me from indulging in the entire bowl of light and crispy greens. “They do go down fast, don’t they? I can eat a whole bag of kale in the afternoon if I turn them into kale chips — and not feel guilty about it!” Moore-Pastides said with a laugh. The refreshing Real Fruit Sodas recipe is so simple that it seems like something I should already have been doing — but I wasn’t. I just combined Perrier with orange juice, ice and a squeeze of lime, but any seltzer water or fresh juice will do. “Grapefruit is good, too. The citrus is always good. Cherry is something they use a lot of in Greece,” said MoorePastides, who has made it with San Pellegrino. “My grandchildren like sparkling cider but you could do this and just use apple juice. You also could just add some herbs and make a fake mojito.” For something a little sweeter, Executive Chef Darek Tidwell, former chef for Presidential Events & Carolina Catering at the University of South Carolina, shared his recipe for Nut-Crusted Creamy Almond and Fruit Tart. Tidwell is now the executive chef at George’s at Alys Beach, 30 Castle Harbour Drive, which reopens for the season on Friday. “Greek Revival” ( GreekRevivalCookbook. com ) is a winner of the 2014 Eric Hoffer Book Award, finalist for the 2014 International Book Award, and it received a gold medal for the 2013 Mom’s Choice Award and Silver Medal for the 2103 Living Now Book Award.

RECIPES The following recipes are from Patricia MoorePastides’ “Greek Revival from the Garden: Growing and Cooking for Life.” Chunky Savory Tomato Sauce for Pasta or Pizza 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil 2 cloves garlic, minced 8 chopped Roma or plum tomatoes 3 teaspoons dried oregano 3 dried bay leaves teaspoon sugar A sprinkle of red-pepper flakes (optional) teaspoon sea salt Ground black pepper to taste Heat the extra virgin olive oil in a large saut pan over medium to medium-high heat. Cook the minced garlic just until it is light golden in color. Lower the heat if necessary to avoid burning the garlic. Add the chopped tomatoes, oregano, bay leaves and sugar and stir the mixture with a wooden spoon to combine. If you like a bit of heat, add redpepper flakes to taste. Let the sauce cook on a steady boil, stirring occasionally until the water from the tomatoes has been reduced by about two-thirds. If the sauce begins to stick to the pan, lower the heat. The sauce should not be completely dry, but it will be more savory when most of the water has evaporated. This sauce needs 15-20 minutes to cook depending on the type of tomatoes you use. Season the sauce with teaspoon of sea salt and a few grinds of black pepper. Remove the bay leaves before using the sauce. Serves 6 as pizza topping or 4 as a pasta sauce. Pure and Simple Oven-Roasted Summer Squashes 2 medium-sized zucchini squash 2 medium-sized yellow squash 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil 2 teaspoons dried oregano Sea salt and pepper to taste Preheat the oven to 375 degrees on the convection setting. Slice the zucchini and yellow squashes into -inch thick rounds. Spread out the slices on two baking sheets with sides and sprinkle 1 tablespoons of the extra virgin olive oil on each pan. Using clean hands, spread the oil over the squash, coating the slices lightly on both sides. Sprinkle the dried oregano over the squash. Roast the squash in the oven for 25-30 minutes or until the slices are browned. Remove the pans from the oven using pot holders and place them on trivets. Using a spatula, remove the baked squash rounds from the pans and place them on a serving platter. Lightly sea salt and pepper to taste. Serves 4. Katie’s Classic Eggplant Parmesan (This is based on a recipe from Katie Stagliano of KatiesKrops. com, a nonprofit organization whose mission is to start and maintain vegetable gardens and donate the harvest to feed people in need.) 3 Ichiban Japanese eggplants cup unbleached allpurpose flour Sea salt teaspoon black pepper 2 eggs 1/3 cup nonfat milk 1 cups dried bread crumbs 2 cloves garlic, minced cup finely chopped parsley cup extra virgin olive oil 2 tablespoons Parmesan cheese Cut the eggplant into -inch slices. Lightly salt the slices and put them aside in a colander set in the sink to drain. Prepare the three shallow bowls as follows: FIRST BOWL: combine the flour, teaspoon sea salt, and teaspoon black pepper. SECOND BOWL: stir together the eggs and milk. THIRD BOWL: combine the bread crumbs, minced garlic, and finely chopped parsley. Dry each slice of eggplant with a clean kitchen towel. Dip a slice of eggplant in the first bowl and coat it well with the flour mixture; move the slice to the second bowl and coat it well with the egg-and-milk mixture; move the slice to the third bowl and coat it fully with bread crumbs. Repeat this procedure with each slice of eggplant. Heat the extra virgin olive oil in a large saut pan over medium-high heat. Add several coated eggplant slices and cook them about 3 minutes per side (or until golden brown). Remove the browned eggplant to a plate covered with paper towels. Continue cooking slices of eggplant until all are browned. If the oil begins to smoke, lower the heat a bit. Dust the warm eggplant with shredded Parmesan cheese. Katie’s Classic Eggplant Parmesan is delicious served with Chunky Savory Tomato Sauce or with Yogurt Ranch Dressing. Serves 4 as a dinner entree or 6 as an appetizer. Oven-Baked Kale Chips with Sesame Seeds 24 tender kale leaves 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil 2 teaspoons whole sesame seeds 2 sprinkles of sea salt Preheat oven to 375 degrees on the convection setting. Wash the kale leaves, removing and discarding the center stems. Tear the leaves into pieces about two inches by two inches. Dry the kale in a salad spinner and then blot with a clean kitchen towel to remove excess water. Put the kale pieces in a large bowl and pour the extra virgin olive oil over them. Using clean hands, rub the oil onto the kale pieces to coat them thoroughly. Spread the kale pieces in a single layer on the baking sheets with sides, making sure they do not overlap. Sprinkle the kale lightly with sesame seeds. Place the sheets on racks positioned in the center of the oven. Set your timer for 6 minutes and check the kale at that stage. With a single layer of chips they should be done, but they may need to cook another minute. The kale chips should look dark green and dry. If the kale turns brown, it becomes bitter. Remove the baking sheets from the oven and slide the chips into a bowl using a metal spatula. Lightly sprinkle them with sea salt and eat immediately. Yum! Serves 4 (but I can easily eat all these myself!) Homegrown Carrots with Yogurt Ranch Dressing 1 quart organic nonfat or low-fat yogurt cup low-fat or nonfat buttermilk 3 cloves garlic, finely minced White parts of 3 scallions (green onions), finely minced 1 small bunch of chives, finely minced (2 tablespoons) 1 small bunch of parsley, finely minced (2 tablespoons) 1 small bunch of dill, finely minced (2 tablespoons) teaspoon paprika teaspoon ground (dry) mustard teaspoon sea salt teaspoon black pepper 1 large bunch of homegrown carrots Spoon the yogurt into a finemesh sieve over a bowl and let the liquid drain into the bowl for a minimum of 20 minutes or overnight in the refrigerator. Discard the liquid (whey) from the yogurt. Place the remaining, thick yogurt in a mixing bowl and add cup low-fat or nonfat buttermilk. Add the minced garlic, scallion, chives, parsley, and dill, as well as the paprika, dry mustard, salt, and pepper to the bowl. Stir well to combine the ingredients and refrigerate the dressing for at least 30 minutes to let the flavors blend. Serve with julienned carrots. Real Fruit Sodas glass juice of your choice (such as cherry, pomegranate, or orange) glass sodium-free seltzer A squeeze of lime juice (wash the lime first) or a bit of fresh mint (wash the mint) Combine the juice and seltzer over ice, stir with an icedtea spoon, and add a squeeze of fresh lime juice and/or a sprig of fresh mint.

PATTI BLAKE | The News Herald Stephen Trusty listens during his trial on charges he shot and killed Leonard Price, who supposedly stole Trusty’s bicycle. GUILTY By CHRIS OL WELL 747-5079 | @PCNHchriso YOUNGS T OWN — A pedes trian was killed Tuesday when he was struck by a vehicle while walking along U.S. 231 north of Bayou George about 12:30 p.m. Brandon Baggett, 20, of Panama City, was taken to Bay Medical Sacred Heart, where he died. Douglas Corbin, 30, of Headland, Ala., was the driver of the truck. He was not injured. Several Florida Highway Patrol troopers converged on the site of the accident, but they said FHP policy prohib ited them from providing any information outside of a press release. They were interview ing a man standing next to a moving truck, presumably Corbin. Troopers closed the outside lane of U.S. 231 to mark areas on the pavement significant to their investigation with spray paint. According to an FHP press release issued later Tuesday, Baggett was walking north in the shoulder along the high way north of South Bear Creek Road when he entered the out side lane and was struck. The impact knocked him onto the shoulder of the highway. The FHP has assigned a homicide investigator to the case, and Corbin has not been charged with any crime. Alco hol use by Corbin has been ruled out as potential factor in the crash. Whether Baggett had used alcohol remains under investigation. Man dies after being hit by truck on U.S. 231 By Z A CK McDONALD 747-5071 | @PCNHzack P A N A M A C IT Y — Stephen Trusty was found guilty Tuesday of shooting a man who stole his bike and threatening to retaliate against a witness of the brutal slaying. Jurors found Trusty, 33, guilty as charged of second-degree murder after more than an hour of deliberation. The jury also found him guilty of threatening one witness to the murder but did not find enough evidence to convict him of threatening a sec ond person. He faces life in prison when he is sentenced Feb. 20. Trusty was charged with mur der after police found 38-year-old Leonard Price shot to death last May 28 in a grassy area between Roosevelt and Carver drives in Panama City. The jury watched video of Price as he left the area of Room 118 of the USA Inn, 710 East 15th St., with the bicycle about midnight. Police were called to the shooting about 40 minutes later to find him dead from five gunshot wounds, includ ing two in the back. Trusty left his clothes and medication in a room at the USA Inn and headed toward Tampa as the murder investigation developed. On Tuesday he denied con fronting Price over a “neighbor hood bike” and killing him. “I have no reason to kill nobody,” Trusty told jurors. Trusty averted his eyes during the autopsy photos. He glanced up occasionally before shaking his head and looking away. Prosecutor Bob Sombathy said although reason might not have played a part in the shoot ing, the two eyewitness accounts and phone records placed Trusty at the scene of the crime. Trusty “was mad because someone had the nerve to steal his bike,” Sombathy said. “It’s hard for me to say motive because there is no motive to kill someone over a stupid bike.” Two witnesses testified to see ing Trusty fire the fatal shots. Tanya Baker and Swanson Owens said they saw Trusty stand over Price and empty a .380-caliber revolver into him. “He stood over the man, fired the rest of the rounds into him and that was it,” Baker said. Price “was rolling around on Trusty convicted of murder, faces up to life sentence “He stood over the man, fired the rest of the rounds into him and that was it.”TANYA BAKER Witness SEE TR US TY | B4 HILLA R Y CLINTON JEB BUS H By JIM S A UNDERST he News Service of Florida TALLA H A SS EE — Bush v. Clinton could be a barnburner in Florida. A Quinnipiac University poll released Tuesday shows former Gov. Jeb Bush and former U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton in a virtual tie in a hypothetical 2016 presidential race in Florida. The poll gave 44 percent to Clinton and 43 percent to Bush. While presidential primaries and caucuses are still a year away —and the fields of candidates are loaded with speculation —the poll indicates Bush would be the tough est opponent for Clinton in the criti cal swing state of Florida. That might not be surprising, as Bush was a popular two-term Republican governor. But the poll also shows the Democrat Clinton leading another native son, Repub lican U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio, by a margin of 49 percent to 39 percent in Florida. Quinnipiac polled voters in Flor ida, Ohio and Pennsylvania, which are all pivotal states in presidential races. Clinton easily topped poten tial Republican candidates in each of the states, with the exception of Bush in Florida and Ohio Gov. John Kasich in Kasich’s home state. “There is a reason why Hill ary Clinton has followed a slower, less aggressive schedule when it comes to ramping up her expected presidential campaign than have virtually all of her potential White House opponents,” Peter A. Brown, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Poll, said in a prepared statement accompanying the results. “She holds double-digit leads over all her potential GOP opponents in the three biggest swing states, except for two native sons, former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush and Ohio Gov. John Kasich. And she is under little pressure from within her own party to hit the campaign trail.” A Bush-Clinton race in Florida would draw tens of millions of dollars, Bush, Clinton an even match in FloridaSEE EVEN MAT CH | B6 By P AT McC ANN747-5068 | T witter: @patmccann P A N A M A C IT Y — Bill Curry has had separate careers as a professional football player, college football coach and ESPN football analyst.

Trusty met up with Baker in the neighborhood off Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard and asked him to yell for Price to come over. Trusty then hid behind a house in wait for Price, Baker said. Owens said he watched as Price walked toward where Trusty waited. Trusty sprang out, pulled a gun and beat Price to the ground before one round rang out. Trusty then straddled Price and fired the remaining rounds in the revolver, Owens said. Price “just kept screaming for help,” Owens said. During cross-examination Tuesday, Trusty’s attorneys steered the focus to Owens’ state ments. He was the first to identify Trusty, but he initially identified Trusty’s brother, Michael Ray Davis, as the shooter. Baker also waited about a week before contacting authorities. Although Owens admitted to officers he had identified the wrong man, defense attorneys used their uncertainty to discredit both men’s testimony. Trusty made a similar case for jurors while explaining his decision to flee instead of face authorities. “People where I come from don’t call the police to talk to them, we run from them,” he said. In his closing statements, Sombathy praised the witnesses for testifying. He also pleaded with the jury to consider witness testimony to the brutal shooting. “Most witnesses will never talk because they’re afraid (of what) will get done,” he said. Trusty also was convicted of threatening retaliation against Owens’ family for identifying him in a suspect lineup. TRUSTY from Page B3

Gore presidential recount. That recount, of course, pitted George W. Bush, the brother of Jeb Bush, and Al Gore, the vice president under former President Bill Clinton. But if Jeb Bush is derailed from getting the Republican nomination next year, the poll indicates other GOP candidates could have a difficult time beating Hillary Clinton in Florida. Along with the sizable mar gin in a hypothetical race against Rubio, Clinton also led by double digits in match-ups against New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, U.S. Sen. Rand Paul of Ken tucky and former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee. The Connecticut-based Quinnipiac, which fre quently conducts polls in Florida and other states, surveyed 936 Florida voters from Jan. 22 to Feb. 1. EVEN MATCH from Page B3 CURRY from Page B3 motivational speaker in which her husband happily assumes a supporting role. “My wife’s work is very, very important, and we’re at the stage in our life where she’s not shoved to the back anymore,” Bill Curry said. “She’s spoken 57 times and I’ve been at 50 of them. Out of the 50 I’ve probably been involved from the dais 10 times, so it’s mostly her.” Bill Curry had a 10-year career in the NFL, which included playing in three Super Bowls. He began his coaching career in 1976 and assumed head coaching positions at Georgia Tech, Alabama and Kentucky, and most recently he was the first head coach from 2008-2012 when Georgia State instituted its football program. Prior to taking the job at Georgia State, Curry was a long time ESPN analyst. “In every case she was the supportive one,” Bill Curry said. “She never complained when I dragged her off somewhere. She’s moved 34 times in our 52 years of marriage, raised two great children, she’s a grand mother of seven, earned her master’s and Ph.D. and never made a B. “We didn’t count on this. We didn’t know this was part of the deal. Almost immediately after her book was published they asked her to speak at various book clubs and bookstores. It’s been a whirlwind, but it’s been delightful.” As a graduate student searching for a topic for her dis sertation, Carolyn Curry had been intrigued by Ella Gertrude Clanton Thomas for some time. She went to Duke University to review her diary that spanned 41 years and filled 13 volumes with 450,000 words. Carolyn Curry eventually wrote a biography of the woman who was born in 1834 into one of the wealthiest families in Geor gia. It has been described as “an intimate story of devastat ing loss and ultimate triumph the courage, perseverance and metamorphosis of a real-life Scarlet O’Hara.” Carolyn Curry taught at the University of Kentucky, and for years had told her husband that women were all but ignored in history books. That kindled her passion to share the stories of women and eventually honed her focus on Thomas. “Not only has she written a great book; she’s a great advo cate,” Bill Curry said. “Her foundation is Women Alone Together. “She always was being shoved to the back when she had so much to offer. That I’m able to celebrate this time with her is a very happy, joint effort. She tells women that it’s never too late to live your dream. She probably never thought that she would get the chance to do this.” Who : Carolyn Curry What : BooksAlive luncheon When : Saturday, 12:302:15 p.m. Cost : $30 Details : Tickets and information are available at Bay County Public Library, 898 W. 11th St., Panama City, 522-2100; and Panama City Beach Public Library, 12500 Hutchison Blvd., 233-5055. WANT TO GO? LAKE CITY (AP) — Charges could be dropped or greatly reduced against two young North Florida sisters accused in the fatal shoot ing of their 16-year-old brother, the lead pros ecutor on the case said Tuesday. Third Circuit State Attorney Jeff Siegmeister said he’ll make a final decision about charges after a Thursday court hearing, which will also address options for the girls’ care, given both of their parents are being held in jail. The Jan. 5 shooting resulted in the arrests of a 15-year-old girl and her 11-year-old sister on second-degree murder charges. Documents show the elder girl had suffered years of physi cal and sexual abuse. Investigators say the elder girl was held in a locked bedroom by her older brother while their parents were away on a work trip. After the brother fell asleep, the girl convinced the younger sister to unlock the door, police reports state. The elder sister asked the younger to keep watch while she climbed through the window of her parents’ locked bedroom, where she retrieved a pistol, police said. With gun in hand, the girl asked her sister to take their 3-year-old sister and hide in a closet before she shot her brother in the neck. Girls held in brother’s shooting could have charges reduced

By TONY SIMMONS 747-5080 | @PCTonyS PANAMA CITY — Fresh off winning the Newbery Medal for outstanding con tribution to children’s litera ture, poet and author Kwame Alexander will speak at a free event hosted by the Bay County Public Library. “I am so excited and elated,” said Sandra Pierce, head of Youth Services for the library. “We are so blessed to have an author of his caliber visiting our library and our schools.” Alexander, whose novelin-verse “The Crossover” was named a Newbery win ner Monday, will visit with Hiland Park Elementary School third-graders and Bay High School freshmen Thursday morning. That afternoon, he will address a group of students from the After-School Assistance Pro gram and Girls Inc. “Generally I like to inspire kids to read and write,” Alex ander said by phone Tues day. “I use poetry to do that. We are immersed in poetry, and often kids will leave say ing, ‘I had no idea this was poetry.’ ” Alexander will then speak at the Bay County Public Library, 898 W. 11th St. in Panama City, at 7 p.m. Thursday. The event is free. The BHS jazz band, Bay Blast, will play music during the event, and BHS cadets will act as door greet ers and ushers. Representa tives from the Alpha Kappa Alpha and Delta Sigma Theta sororities will provide refreshments. “This is an excellent opportunity to see a chil dren’s author in our com munity share his knowledge and some poetry,” Pierce said. She also called “The Crossover” a powerful book. “It reads with such rhythm. It’s about the family life and relationships of two teenage boys, it’s about character building.” In the book, 12-year-old narrator Josh Bell uses the rhythms of a poetry jam to emulate the “moving and grooving/popping and rock ing” of life on the basketball court with his twin brother, J.B. “I wanted to write a book boys would pick up,” Alex ander said, noting evidence boys are hesitant to spend time reading rather than in physical activities. “They want books that are excit ing to them, so I framed it in things boys are interested in. It’s about friendship, family and love, couched in terms of basketball.” The founder of two liter acy organizations — Bookin-a-Day and LEAP for Ghana — Alexander con ducts writing and publishing workshops at schools and conferences throughout the nation. He has owned pub lishing companies and has written for the stage and tele vision (including TLC’s “Hip Hop Harry”). He recorded a CD, performed around the world, produced jazz and book festivals, hosted a radio show, worked for the U.S. government and taught high school. He will serve as the Bank Street College of Education’s first writer-inresidence this year. “I just finished a novel about a boy who loves soccer but hates books,” he said of his next project. “It’s inspired by boys I met on this book tour. I wanted to explore that transformation.” Alexander is the author of 18 books, including “The Crossover,” which received its honor from the American Library Association on Mon day. It also was chosen as a Coretta Scott King Honor Book and was called “a beautifully measured novel” by The New York Times. “You can’t get better than that,” Pierce said of the hon ors the book received. “I was so excited I couldn’t catch my breath.” The Newbery Medal was named for the 18thcentury British bookseller John Newbery. It is awarded annually by the Association for Library Service to Chil dren, a division of the Ameri can Library Association, to the author of the year’s most distinguished contribution to American literature for children. Alexander’s visit is part of the library’s annual Book sAlive festival, which brings nationally known authors to Panama City for free work shops and speaking ses sions. The main event will be 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday at Florida State University Panama City.

It’s the oil giant’s latest legal effort to limit its losses from the nation’s worst off shore oil spill. BP says the claims administrator, Patrick Juneau, failed to disclose that he worked on previous oil spill litigation for the state of Loui siana when he was hired to oversee settlement payouts. Attorneys for Juneau told the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals that he hid nothing improper and his record of work for the state was pub lic well before BP and others agreed to his hiring in 2012. All sides hailed the settle ment when it was approved in 2012. But BP later argued that Juneau was misinter preting the settlement and paying claims to businesses that didn’t deserve them. BP urges judges to remove head of settlement fund


DIVERSIONS A ces On BRIDGE: B obby W olff Husband discovers wife’s secret chats DEAR AMY: I have been married for 11 years. My wife and I have two children. Recently I found out my wife has been chatting with her first cousin (male) on social networking sites almost daily. He lives in a different country. This communication started a year ago. There is nothing sexual in the communication at this point. He is 10 years younger than she is. I first chanced upon the conversation when I saw the message flash up on her phone. I dug deeper and saw that this chatting has been going on for about a year. I have never heard much about him, besides the fact that they are related. Am I overreacting — or being jealous? If I confront her, I will have to tell her that I violated her privacy. We’ve always been open about our phone communications — I know her password and she knows mine. Is this something I should just ignore or should I confront her? CONFUSED DEAR CONFUSED: Once an issue has become so nagging that it leads to snooping, I think “just ignoring it” is pretty much out of the question. You obviously have questions about this relationship, so I suggest you be brave enough to ask your wife about it. You should be completely honest about inspecting her phone messages and transparent about how confusing this is for you. She may respond by opening up about this communication and sharing the details with you and/or looping you into the conversation, to ease your mind. That’s the most hopeful scenario. If your wife refuses to discuss it, is overly defensive, changes her password or blocks you on social media, I’d say you’ve stumbled onto a bigger problem. There is nothing wrong with having private conversations with friends and family members, but if these conversations are shrouded in secrecy or emotionally intimate to the point of excluding you entirely, then you and your wife must work to repair and reconnect. DEAR AMY: A few days ago I was at the airport gate waiting for our departure when a woman with a bag from a fast-food place came up and sat in our midst. She pulled out her burger and fries and ate them, then got up and left the area. (I couldn’t see if she went to her gate or found another seat.) I exchanged looks with a couple of the other people waiting, as we all were aware of her aromatic meal. Likewise, movie theaters now sell pizza and nachos in addition to popcorn, and the smell of some of this stuff is nauseating, especially if one hasn’t eaten in a while and doesn’t indulge in greasy fried foods. Is there a nice way to ask someone to eat somewhere else, or is this another convention that we simply have to live with? PETER DEAR PETER: As someone who spends a lot of time in airports, I can think of many other gripes and grievances that would take precedence over the smell of someone else’s fries. So no — these public airport spaces are intended for everyone’s use, including the person eating noxious nachos or the person who has been traveling for days and might not have bathed recently. Your choice not to “indulge in greasy fried foods” is valid, but if the smell is nauseating, then you can move. Likewise at the movie theater. The person has paid for her seat, the theater has chosen to sell snacks, and the patron shouldn’t be expected to adjust her snack choice — or change seats — because of your sensitivities.

If you can control yourself, you will have greater influence over others. TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Why waste your time on pursuits that most people can do? There are benefits to specialization. Pursue the things you are naturally best at. GEMINI (May 21-June 21): You’ve been going nonstop. You need a period of rest to recharge and get inspired again. If you can’t make it happen today, at least you can prepare for a time in the near future. CANCER (June 22-July 22): All progress will start with acceptance. Acknowledge the reality and accept everything about it. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): When you feel afraid, you don’t need to run away to find relief. Just wait and let the relief come to you. It will, and much more quickly than you think. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): The day calls for kindness and compassion from you to you. Make yourself comfortable. If you can’t figure out how to do it, experiment with possibilities until you find what works. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). The completion of an important project is near. It’s important to have something in the works for when this is finished to minimize the sense of loss that accompanies such endings. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21): It turns out that “happily ever after” is created one happy moment at a time. The special thing that happens this week is that you recognize contentment when you experience it. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): The opportunity available to you is great only in proportion to your ability to make use of it. For now, focus on educating yourself so that when the truly prime opportunity arises, you’ll know exactly what to do. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): How you get there may be just as important as what you do when you arrive. You have to feel good about your methods, but at the same time, you don’t have to broadcast them. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Children are magical. It may take some time for the magic to emerge -after all, they do need special care -but if you’re lucky enough to know a child, it will be worth the trouble. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Soon after you master a skill, you will tire of it. That’s why it’s important to have something new on the horizon to look forward to.

Sports PANAMA CITY NEWS HERALD Section C Facebook: Twitter: @NH_Sports By DUSTIN KENT 747-5065 | @PCNHDustinKent SAND HILLS — Bozeman’s season came to a crushing end Tuesday night, as the Bucks fell to Liberty County 84-73 in the Dis trict 4-1A tournament quarterfinals. The Bulldogs rained down 11 3-pointers to race past a listless Bozeman defense, with Shamon Mosley and Garrett Swier combin ing for 56 of Liberty’s 84 points. It was the 20th loss of the season for a vet eran Bucks’ team that came into the season expecting much more, according to coach Michael Memmen. “It’s very frustrating. We have six seniors and this is our first losing season in four years,” Mem men said. “Our expectations were high at the start of the year, but sometimes the chips don’t fall how you want them to.” The primary issue for the Bucks on Tues day was their inability to slow down the fast-paced Liberty County attack from the opening tip to the final buzzer. Swier got the Bulldogs on the board with a 3-pointer and Mosley added two more during a 15-3 run to start the game. Bozeman, 6-20, closed to within six at 1812 after the first quarter and trailed by just seven midway through the second quarter. But Liberty County, 11-12, closed the first half strong, going on a 7-2 run with Swier knocking down another three and Mosley The Associated Press On national signing day, there is a good chance Florida fans will be angry with Will Muschamp again. The former Gators coach who was fired last season and hired as Auburn’s defensive coordina tor two weeks after he coached his final game for Florida has the Tigers in position to make a sign ing day surge. Linebacker Byron Cowart of Seffner, Florida, rated the No. 1 prospect in the country by Rivals. com and ESPN, is scheduled to pick between Auburn and Florida today, when high school football players can make those verbal commitments binding by signing a national letter of intent. And Cowart’s not the only blue chipper from the Sunshine State expected to choose between Auburn and Florida. Offensive tackle Martez Ivey from Apopka, another consensus top-five player, and four-star line backer Jeffrey Holland of Jack sonville also have narrowed it down to Tigers or Gators. “It’s a different situation for sure,” said J.C. Shurburtt, national recruiting director for 247Sports. “If you look back at the history of the SEC, I can’t really remember a time when a head coach went as an assistant to another school and started recruiting for that new school.” Muschamp was 28-21 in four mostly disappointing seasons at Florida, but even while his final year with the Gators was unravel ing he was still connecting with recruits. “I’ve never seen a head coach who was dead man walk ing have so much loyalty to him from recruits,” said Mike Farrell, national recruiting director for “When you compare the two situations, Brady Hoke was on his way out (at Michigan) and everybody abandoned ship. And at Florida all these big-name kids are still interested until Mus champ got fired. Then they lost interest. And then Muschamp gets hired at Auburn and all of sudden Auburn’s the hot team.” WEDNESDAY February 4, 2015 Muschamp’s move has Auburn in line for signing day surge Colleges eye undecided recruits on eve of signing day C2 SIGNING DAY Arnold boys basketball team wins district opener C3 PREP ROUNDUP SEE A UBURN | C2 DISTRICT BOYS BASKETBALL Gulf Coast to challenge NWF State The News Herald NICEVILLE — With just five Panhandle Confer ence games left to play, each remaining outing for the Gulf Coast men’s and women’s basketball teams is significant in each club’s postseason hopes. Perhaps the most chal lenging of the final five contests for each team comes tonight, as the Lady Commodores take on No. 4 Northwest Florida State, and the GC men face the top-ranked team in the country in the unbeaten Raiders. The Raiders (23-0 over all, 7-0 in the conference) can wrap up at least a share of the league championship with a win over the Commo dores (17-7, 4-3). Gulf Coast needs a win to stay in sole possession of second place in the standings. Gulf Coast is on a threegame winning streak after knocking off Chipola 70-53, Tallahassee 76-66, and Pensacola State 64-58. The latter victory elevated the Commodores to sole possession of second for the first time this season. The Pirates (15-10, 4-4) are idle this week and came move back into a tie for sec ond with a Gulf Coast loss. Northwest Florida is coming off of a 91-71 win over Chipola on Saturday in a game that was tied at halftime. The Raiders blew it open with a 50-30 second half. Benji Bell and Jalen Jackson each scored 21 points to lead the Raid ers, with Bell continuing to make his case for Pan handle player of the year by averaging 19.6 points, 5.4 assists, and 2.6 steals on 51.2 percent shooting from the field. He’s connecting at 50 percent from the 3-point line in Panhandle games. The Lady Commo dores (16-6, 3-4) will try to draw even with TCC (19-7, 4-4) in the race for the third state tour nament spot from the Panhandle. The Lady Eagles fell to No. 3 Chipola 63-48 Tuesday night in Tallahassee.

Dolphins, B ucs ready for girls regional quarterfinals By DUSTIN KENT 747-5065 | @PCNHDustinKent Mosley and North Bay Haven will begin their playoff pushes Thursday in girls basketball, with the 5A Dolphins going to Tallahassee to face Rickards and the 3A Buccaneers hosting North Florida Christian. The Dolphins (22-5) must open away from home as a result of a 36-22 loss to Choctawhatchee in the Dis trict 1 championship game. Rickards (18-8) breezed through its title game 62-22 over Suwannee. Mosley coach Jon Mason said he hopes that his players can take the lessons learned from the loss to Choctaw and use them to their advantage on Thursday. “Choctaw got out and ran a little bit and that hurt us, so we’re preparing to play an up-and-down game and we have to be pre pared to play better transition defense,” Mason said. “They also hurt us on the glass, so we’ve definitely got to control the defensive rebounding.” The Dolphins will need ramp up their offense more than they did against Choctaw, with the 22 points representing a sea son low. “More than anything, we just didn’t shoot the ball partic ularly well,” Mason said. “Their big girl Nadia (Fingall) controlled the paint, so we didn’t get many layups or anything inside.” Rickards has no one as big as the 6-foot-4 Fingall, so there should be more opportunities for the Dolphins to get inside and find clean looks near the basket.

Freshman Tyler Farmer had a monster game for Franklin County, scoring 28 points, grabbing nine rebounds and dishing out eight assists. He helped Franklin County over come a big-time scoring effort on the other end from South Walton’s Paxton Dixon, who put in 31 points and kept his team within striking distance for much of the night.

SPORT S Page C2 | The News Herald | Wednesday, February 4, 2015 Signing day: Cowart, Ivey lead best uncommitted recruits The Associated Press Spend a few hours on national signing day watch ing teenagers pick hats in their high school gymna siums and you might find it hard to believe that the vast majority of top foot ball prospects have long ago made their choice of colleges. Those who do hold out tend to get a lot of attention — especially when they are among the best players in country. This year, several fivestar prospects are set to announce where they will attend school on signing day. A look at the players expected to produce the most drama and excitement on Wednesday, when college football teams re-stock their shelves with fresh talent. 1. Byron Cowart, LB, 6-foot-4, 250 pounds, Arm wood High School. The No. 1 player on the board according to both Rivals and ESPN, he seemed destined for Florida until the Gators fired coach Will Mus champ. When Muschamp landed the defensive coordinator job at Auburn, Cowart turned his atten tion to the Tigers. Cowart reportedly tore up the practices for the Under Armour All-America Game and has the look of a player who could turn into a menace of a pass rusher. “This kid really loves to play the game and I think that some times can be an overlooked trait in the evaluation process,” ESPN national recruiting director Tom Luginbill said. “Some guys, they’re living for it. I think he’s that type of guy. There’s a tremendous amount of drive and passion for the game. I don’t think it’s necessarily some thing that can be taught.” 2. Martez Ivey, OT, 6-5, 275 pounds, Apopka High School. Another player choos ing between Auburn and Flor ida, though he was considering Auburn even before Muschamp made the move. An athletic and well-rounded lineman, Ivey has room to grow and gain weight. The top-rated offensive lineman in this class. 3. Iman Marshall, CB, 6-1, 190, Long Beach (Calif.) Poly. Scouts love tall corners. Marshall is a 6-1 and 190 pounds, fast and physical. Jim Harbaugh and Mich igan are making a late charge to pull him away from Southern Cali fornia and UCLA. Florida, LSU and Notre Dame also will be hop ing Marshall picks them. 4. CeCe Jefferson, DE, 62, 250, Baker County Senior. Despite being a little short for an elite pass rusher, Jefferson displays a variety of moves and strong hands. Another five-star with Florida and Auburn on his list, but the analysts are leaning more toward an Alabama or Mississippi decision for him. Florida State and LSU also in the mix. 5. SoSo Jamabo, RB/ath lete, 6-2, 210, Plano West (Texas) High School. If noth ing else, Jamabo’s got a sense of humor. He tweeted last week that his choices were down to The Uni versity of Phoenix and ITT Tech nical Institute. Now that it’s time to get serious, he’ll pick between UCLA and Texas. “What position he plays is also going to be interesting tracking at the next level,” Luginbill said. His frame suggests a possible move to linebacker or strong safety. Or maybe he could follow in the footsteps of UCLA’s Myles Jack and Washington’s Shaq Thompson and play both sides of the ball. AP Team Highlight’s Byron Cowart (99), of Seffner, celebrates after making a tackle during the second half of the Under Armour All-America high school football game against Team Armour in St. Petersburg on Jan. 2. sole possession of first place at 6-1. Gulf Coast notched its second straight lopsided win Saturday, blowing out Pensacola State 76-49 after routing TCC 74-54 earlier in the week. With another win and a TCC loss, the Lady Commodores would move into a tie for third place in the Panhandle. The two teams play once more on Feb. 14 in Tallahassee. The Lady Commodores very nearly pulled off an upset of NWFS in the first meeting on Jan. 14 in Panama City. A last-second tipin by Tyshara Fleming sent the game into overtime where the Lady Raiders eventually hung on to win 96-92. deal of quickness and they use it to press their opponents full court, force turnovers and push the pace. It will be imperative that the Dolphins take care of the ball and control the tempo. “The biggest key is just han dling their pressure and trying to use our height to our advantage,” Mason said. “If we can put the ball inside and expose them a little bit, it could open up the court for our shooters. We have to win the game by putting the ball in the post. If we can do that, it will be to our advantage.” For the Bucs, Thursday’s matchup is the third of the season with the District 2-3A runner-up NFC, with the Eagles winning a pair of closel -contested games, 46-42 at NBH on Dec. 13 and 45-40 on Jan. 10 in Tallahassee. Bucs coach Sabrenia Doug las-Coates said despite being 0-2 against the Eagles, she believes her team is playing much bet ter now and has a great chance to reverse those oucomes on Thursday. “I told my girls that it’s often very hard to beat a team three times,” she said. “I think we’ll be very confident to go out there knowing we can accomplish this task and win this game. It’s a home game for the regionals, so I think the girls’ enthusiasm is up and they’re excited about it. I’m pretty confident we can go out and get it done this time.” The Eagles lost to Maclay 61-31 in their district champion ship game, while NBH earned the first-round home game by routing Rocky Bayou Christian 56-11. NBH will tip off with NFC at 6 p.m., while Mosley-Rick ards also starts at 6 p.m. CST in Tallahassee. In Class 1A, Chipley, Port St. Joe, Sneads, and Ponce de Leon all host regional semifinal games on Tuesday. District 3 champ Chipley hosts District 4 runner-up South Wal ton, while the District 4 champion Tiger Sharks welcome District 3 runner-up Freeport. At the top of the bracket, Dis trict 1 champ PDL hosts District 2 second-place Graceville and District 2 winner Sneads hosts District 1 runner-up Paxton. GIRLS from Page C1 RIVALS from Page C1 WILL MUSCHA M P AUBURN from Page C1 Cowart showed no interest in Auburn until Muschamp made the 300-mile move northwest from Gainesville. “We’re real locked in,” Cowart told after a visit to Auburn in January. “(Muschamp) made every thing feel like home. I was comfortable, had fun, no stress, no worrying about anything.” Ivey and Holland had been consid ering Auburn all along, but the Tigers chances to sign both improved when Muschamp arrived and brought along former Florida assistant Travaris Robinson. “Don’t underestimate his role in all this,” Shurburtt said. “He was one of Florida’s top recruiters and it’s the assistants that really get it done.” Muschamp and Robinson also put Auburn in the mix for another fivestar from Florida, defensive end CeCe Jefferson from Glen St. Mary, though Jefferson seems more likely to choose between Alabama and Mississippi on signing day. Ivey and Holland are also scheduled to announce their choices today. Farrell and Shurburtt said they would lean toward Cowart and Hol land picking Auburn and Ivey going to Florida. “You’re talking about three kids there that if Muschamp was still at Florida, they’d probably already be Gators,” Shurburtt said. Another Rivals top-100 player, receiver Ryan Davis from St. Peters burg, will also choose between Florida and Auburn. With a strong finish, Auburn could be looking at a top-five class, right up there with Alabama, Southern Califor nia and Florida State. Meanwhile, new Florida coach Jim McElwain heads into signing day with a class that ranks near the bottom of the Southeastern Conference — though with a chance to get much better. While few Gators fans were upset to see Muschamp go, Auburn is thrilled to have him. “He’s been a breath of fresh air,” Malzahn said. “He’s a great defensive mind, a great staff guy.” NFL BRIEFS Solemn Seahawks pack up for offseason RENTON, Wash. — When Russell Wilson took the snap with 26 seconds remaining in the Super Bowl, made his read and released the pass, he believed he was on his way to getting fitted for a second Super Bowl ring. He never saw New England’s Malcolm Butler breaking, beating Ricardo Lockette to the pass and creating one of the most infamous plays in Super Bowl history. “When I threw it, I was like, ‘Touchdown, second Super Bowl ring, here we go,’” Wilson said. “And it didn’t happen.” The Seattle Seahawks cleaned out their lockers and headed into the offseason in a solemn, quiet fashion on Tuesday, two days after their dramatic 28-24 loss to New England. Some players were still at a loss to describe the emotion of Seattle getting to the New England 1-yard line with 26 seconds left only to see Wilson get intercepted by Butler. Normally talkative tight end Luke Willson seemed to sum up the feelings for everyone. “I don’t know guys. I don’t really have too many answers,” Willson said. “Sorry. It is what it is.” NFL suspends Browns’ Gordon for year CLEVELAND — Josh Gordon has been pushed out of bounds again by the NFL. And this time, there’s no guarantee he’ll be back. The troubled wide receiver was suspended by the league for at least one year without pay on Tuesday for violating the league’s substance-abuse program. The 23-year-old’s third suspension since turning pro has placed his once promising career in jeopardy and could be the end of his days with the Browns. Gordon, who has already served two league suspensions for drug violations, will have to apply for reinstatement. A league spokesman said his one-year ban begins immediately, meaning he will miss the entire 2015 season and forfeit his $1.07 million salary and a portion of the $2.3 million bonus he got while signing a four-year contract in 2012. The former Pro Bowler has been a repeat offender of the league’s drug policy, and his latest offense seems to have driven a deep wedge between him and the Browns. General manager Ray Farmer was blunt in responding to Gordon’s latest troubles. “As we have conveyed, we are disappointed to once again be at this point with Josh,” Farmer said in a statement. “Throughout his career we have tried to assist him in getting support like we would with any member of our organization. Unfortunately our efforts have not resonated with him.” Farmer said Gordon needs to make substantial strides to live up to the team’s expectations. “Our hope is that this suspension affords Josh the opportunity to gain some clarity in determining what he wants to accomplish moving forward and if he wants a career in the Nation Football League,” he said. Hardwick retires after anchoring Chargers SAN DIEGO — In announcing his retirement after 11 seasons of anchoring the San Diego Chargers’ offensive line, Nick Hardwick held it together better than the quarterback and coach he’s leaving behind. Hardwick got misty eyed a few times during a news conference Tuesday, but otherwise enjoyed the chance to say goodbye. “I’m incredibly proud and grateful that I get to have a moment,” said Hardwick, who was a third-round draft pick out of Purdue in 2004. “A lot of guys come through these doors, in and out, have great careers, but they don’t get to stand up in front and have a little bit of closure. So for me, having closure is really nice. It’s a nice moment. It’s something I’m embracing.” F alcons welcome Quinn FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. (AP) — Two days after a startling Super Bowl loss, Dan Quinn is off to a new start with the Atlanta Falcons. It happened quickly. The former Seattle defensive coordinator was intro duced as the team’s coach Tuesday, a day after he was hired and less than 48 hours after a Super Bowl loss to New England. Quinn beamed as he dis cussed plans for the Falcons. But he’s still trying to process the Patriots’ 28-24 win, sealed when Malcolm Butler inter cepted a pass at the goal line with 20 seconds left. “For me it was such an emo tional time in the game,” Quinn said. “So I didn’t really have time to put it into a place you would want it to get to.” Surely, Quinn would like to put it in the past. “I can’t wait to build a similar cham pionship environment here in Atlanta,” Quinn said. “There are all sorts of chal lenges ahead, lots of hard work to do. I can’t wait to get started.” Quinn’s defenses helped lead Seat tle to two straight Super Bowls. The Seahawks beat Denver to win last year’s championship. The new coach is looking for defense that plays “fast and physical” and an offense with balance. Falcons owner Arthur Blank said he chose Quinn “to provide leadership in all three phases of the game and add additional leadership in the building of our franchise.” Quinn, 44, replaces Mike Smith, who was fired following two straight losing seasons. Quinn’s coaching staff will include offensive coordinator Kyle Sha nahan and defensive coordinator Rich ard Smith. Shanahan had the same job with the Cleveland Browns last year after four seasons directing the Wash ington Redskins’ offense. “The way he can attack an offense, he’s one of the hardest guys to coach against when you’re coaching defense,” Quinn said.

Police: Armstrong hit cars, blamed friend DENVER — Disgraced cyclist Lance Armstrong hit two parked cars after a night of partying in Aspen but agreed to let his longtime girlfriend take the blame to avoid national attention, police reports show. Aspen police cited Armstrong with failing to report an accident and speeding weeks after the Dec. 28 accident, but only after his girlfriend, Anna Hansen, admitted to lying for him. Armstrong declined immediate comment, and his attorney, Pamela Mackey, didn’t immediately return a call. Hansen initially told police she had been driving home from an Aspen Art Museum party when she lost control of Armstrong’s GMC Yukon on the icy roads, hitting the cars. She said she drove because “Lance had a little bit to drink,” according to the reports. A man who had been renting one of the damaged cars told a police detective that Hansen came running up to his house in high heels, apologizing and promising to pay for the repairs. “She said, ‘I’m Anna, we’re the Armstrongs, my husband’s Lance, he was just driving maybe too fast around the corner or something,’” the man told police, according to the reports. He called 911 to report a hit-and-run. Hansen and Armstrong left the scene before police arrived. Detectives later interviewed Hansen, who eventually told them Armstrong was driving, but they had both decided to let her take the blame. U.S. keeper in upset of England dies ST.

James, I have enjoyed your classes at GCSC during Education Encore. I have taken your class in years past and know that you have talked about this problem in class before. I can’t remember what you told us in class. My problem is my Chevy truck is running rough when I first start up when it is warm. My truck is a 2008 Chevy 1500 Silverado with a 5.3 liter engine. It only runs rough for about 20 to 30 seconds when it first starts on a warm engine. It runs fine when the engine is first started when cold, only after I drive it to the store and cut it off and restart it does the truck runs rough. It does have a fuel management system, if that makes any difference. There is not a check engine light on, and there are no codes stored in the computer. My truck has 154,000 miles on it and I use 5w30 Mobil 1 full synthetic. The spark plugs have been changed in the last 10,000 miles and my tech in Canada has run out of ideas. Ed Ed, What I have talked about in past classes about this condition can be a couple of things. If the engine takes longer cranking time to start, and then runs rough, then a suspected loss of static fuel pressure is an area to look at. This could be a faulty check valve in the fuel pump, leaky injector(s) or a fuel pressure regulator leakage. If the engine does not have extended crank time and only runs rough on a hot start, then I suspect the intake valves have carbon build up on the backside of the valve. This can be determined by “sniffing” the exhaust with an exhaust analyzer. During testing if there is a higher level of NOx (Oxides of Nitrogen) more than 30 PPM (Parts Per Million) at idle, this indicates carbon build up in the combustion chamber. NOx should not be present at idle since it is produced at 2500 degrees or higher in the combustion chamber. If the readings are what I suspect, then your injectors and valves need to be chemically cleaned along with your air induction system to solve this problem. There may even be a computer update from GM to solve this problem. The only way to find out if this is your problem is to call my shop for a free test drive and consultation along with a free emission test to see if this is your problem. All this costs is 15 minutes of your time to see if we can help solve your problem.
