Ten restaurants were closed in 2014 and two more businesses have been temporarily closed this year because of health concerns, according to the Florida Department of Business and Professional Regulation (DBPR) records. Each of the restaurants corrected health concerns before subsequent inspections and state inspectors allowed them to reopen. The two most recent closures in Bay County were Waffle House and Subway. On Jan. 15, the Waffle House at 2217 Thomas Drive was closed shortly after DBPR officials observed roach activity. Inspectors saw about 30 live roaches under a dishwasher and spotted about 15 dead roaches on a glue trap in the area, according to reports. Inspectors also saw employees switch from working with raw food to ready-to-eat food without washing their hands, and the cook also handled raw bacon before handling sliced tomatoes, DBPR reported. Waffle House managers forwarded requests for comments to a corporate spokeswoman. Obama seeks new war powers, says IS ‘going to lose’ WASHINGTON (AP) — Vowing that Islamic State forces are “going to lose,” President Barack Obama urged Congress on Wednesday to authorize military action against terrorists who are cutting a swath across the Middle East. Yet he ruled out large-scale U.S. ground combat operations reminiscent of Iraq and Afghanistan. “I’m convinced that the United States should not get dragged back into another prolonged ground war,” the president said at the White House as he set Congress on a path to its first war-powers vote in 13 years.

ON THE WEB By JOHN HENDERSON 522-5108 | @ P C N Hjohn PANAMA CITY — Each day, an average of 25 million gallons of water from Deer Point reservoir pours through a single 36-inch pipe into the Bay County Water Treatment Plant. There, all the county’s drinking water is processed 24 hours a day — and treated so well that state officials recently recognized the plant with an award. The Florida Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) has selected the plant to receive a 2014 Plant Operations Award. “Each year, the department presents awards to domestic wastewater and drinking water facilities around the state that demonstrate excellence in operation, maintenance, innovative treatment, waste reduction, pollution prevention, recycling or other achievements,” said Brandi M. Smith, a DEP spokeswoman. “These awards are presented to recognize facilities that demonstrate a special commitment to excellence in management through dedicated professionalism.” Smith said the DEP is honoring only 10 wastewater facilities and 12 drinking water plants statewide. The Bay County plant at 3410 Transmitter Road uses a conventional treatment process consisting of coagulation, flocculation, sedimentation, filtration, pH adjustment, disinfection, fluoridation and corrosion control. In a nutshell, the process separates organic solids from the spring water, plant superintendent Donald Hamm said. “The main thing is making sure our primary coagulant, which is ferric sulfate, is dosed right to treat the water,” Hamm said. Near the end of the treatment process the water is treated with chlorine and fluoride to help prevent tooth decay. But the first part of the process involves separating out the organic solids, which can be more or less intense depending upon how much rain there has been.

N ATI ON & W O RLD B riefs Page A2 | The News Herald | Thursday, February 12, 2015 Britain starts public trial of driverless cars LONDON (AP) — Driver less cars are hitting Britain’s public roads for the first time, giving a glimpse of future travel that’s billed as safer and more efficient. Britain unveiled four proto type self-drive cars Wednesday, launching the country’s first public trials ahead of a series of planned rule reviews to accom modate the new technology. Officials showed off four types of autonomous vehicles under trial, including a shut tle that looks like a larger golf cart and a compact two-seater “pod.” Journalists took short rides on the shuttle, which zipped around a public square outside central London’s O2 Arena as curious pedestrians looked on. The project was “still in the early days,” Transport Minister Claire Perry said, but she added the new technology has the potential to make roads safer and attract global investment. Britain has ambitions to lead development in driverless cars, which also are being tested in U.S. cities by companies includ ing Google. Auto companies from Mercedes-Benz to Nissan also are developing self-drive vehicles, though most are not ready to go on public roads and highways commercially. Regulation and legal changes are a major hurdle. Officials say fully driverless cars are unlikely to be used on British roads until 2030. Britain’s government, which is spending $29 million on four trial centers around the coun try, said it will amend and review domestic road regula tions by 2017. One focus will be on establishing liability when a self-drive car crashes. “Until that key concern is clarified, probably by statute, many drivers will remain wary of ‘driverless’ driving,” said Edmund King, president of drivers’ organization AA. The next immediate step is for officials to publish guide lines for companies to test the cars in “real-life scenarios” on roads — including highways — by this summer. Qualified driv ers will be riding in the cars, ready to take control should anything go awry. In Germany, which also is pushing for more automated driving, officials have desig nated a busy stretch of highway — a Bavarian stretch of the A9 autobahn connecting Munich and Berlin — for the testing of systems that measure and transmit to cars such condi tions as ice, heat and potholes. That stretch eventually will be able to handle driverassistance systems and then fully automated vehicles, the ministry for transport and digi tal infrastructure said. AP A woman looks at a prototype driverless car called a LUTZ (Low-carbon Urban Transport Zone) Pathfinder Pod near the O2 Arena in London on Wednesday.

HITTING THE ROAD GROSSETO, Italy Costa Concordia captain convicted, gets 16 years in prison The captain of the capsized Costa Concordia cruise ship was convicted and sentenced Wednesday to 16 years and one month in prison for multiple counts of manslaughter, causing a shipwreck and abandoning ship in the 2012 disaster that killed 32 people. The three-judge panel handed down 10 years for multiple counts of manslaughter, five years for causing the Jan. 13, 2012, shipwreck, and one year for abandoning the ship while many of the luxury liner’s 4,200 passengers and crew still were onboard. He also was sentenced to one month under arrest for false communications to maritime authorities. Four Concordia crew members and Costa’s crisis coordinator were allowed to plea bargain. None is serving prison time. MONESSEN, Pa. Middle school students given ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ puzzles Parents in a Pennsylvania school district are turning 50 shades of red over word search puzzles given to middle school students based on an erotic novel. The students were given puzzles based on “Fifty Shades of Grey” that contained terms including “spanking,” “submissive,” “leather cuffs” and “bondage.” Other words on the list were more explicit. Superintendent Leanne Spazak said the circumstances are under investigation. “It was a huge but unintentional error and collected from the five students involved as soon as it was realized,” Roberta Bergstedt wrote in an email. “Unfortunately one copy was taken by a student who then posted it on social media.” NEW YORK NYC officer pleads not guilty to manslaughter in shooting A New York City police officer has pleaded not guilty of manslaughter, official misconduct and other charges in the shooting of a man in a darkened stairwell of a Brooklyn public housing complex. Officer Peter Liang is charged in the November death of 28-year-old Akai Gurley. Liang’s lawyer says the shooting was an accident. District Attorney Ken Thompson says he doesn’t believe Liang intended to kill Gurley, but his finger was on the trigger and he fired the shot. Congress clears Keystone XL pipeline bill, setting up veto WASHINGTON (AP) — The Republican-controlled Congress approved a bill Wednesday to con struct the Keystone XL oil pipe line, setting up a confrontation with President Barack Obama, who has threatened to veto the measure. The House voted 270-152 to send the bill to the president, endorsing changes made by the Senate that stated climate change was real and not a hoax and that oil sands no longer should be exempt from a tax used to clean up oil spills. Only one Republican voted against the measure. But neither chamber has enough support to overcome a veto, and supporters already were strategizing on how to secure approval using other means. “The evidence is in. The case ought to be closed,” said Rep. Fred Upton, R-Mich., chairman of the House Energy and Commerce Committee. For Republicans, the bill’s pas sage capped weeks of debate on a top priority after they took control of Congress last month. Democrats, meanwhile, called the effort a waste of time but said the provisions on global warming and oils spills marked progress for Republicans on those issues. Rep. Alcee Hastings, D-Fla., said the bill was another example of Republicans prioritizing legislation to demonstrate a message, regard less of its chances of becoming law. The vote Wednesday marked the 11th attempt by Republicans to advance the pipeline. “The last few years have been like a hamster on a wheel — spinning and spinning and not get ting anywhere,” Hastings said. Republicans and the oil indus try have argued the $8 billion infrastructure project is about jobs and boosting energy security, by importing oil from a friendly neigh bor and shipping it to domestic refineries subject to stringent envi ronmental regulations. Democrats and their environmental allies have characterized it as a gift to the oil industry that would worsen global warming and subject parts of the country to the risks of an oil spill. “The last few years have been like a hamster on a wheel — spinning and spinning and not getting anywhere.” Rep.

Their alleged crime: routinely making bank deposits of less than $10,000. That allowed the business owners to avoid reporting requirements designed to catch drug dealers and money launderers. IRS Commissioner John Koskinen told Congress that the IRS is changing its policies to prevent the seizures, as long as the money came from legal means. “To anyone who is not treated fairly under the code, I apologize,” Koskinen told the House Ways and Means oversight subcommittee. “Taxpayers have to be comfortable that they will be treated fairly.” By law, bank transactions above $10,000 must be reported to the IRS. It’s a felony, called “structuring,” to manage transactions to avoid the reporting requirement, even if the money is legally earned. In some cases, the IRS seized and held bank accounts for years without bringing charges. Koskinen said he didn’t know how many cases the new policy would affect. He said the IRS seized 47 accounts last year, including those in which the money was illegally obtained. “On average over the last several years, it’s less than 200 cases,” Koskinen said. “In 60 percent of those cases, the owner of the asset never shows up, which shows that they obviously had a criminal activity going on.” The Treasury inspector general for tax administration is launching an audit of the IRS’s seizure program, said Rep. Peter Roskam, R-Ill., chairman of the Ways and Means oversight subcommittee. It is unclear how long the probe will take. Roskam said the IRS has too much power to seize assets, even if the agency doesn’t have adequate evidence of a crime. “The IRS doesn’t have to give notice to the account-holder before seizing the assets. And the IRS doesn’t have to prove that the person is actually guilty of anything — just that the account probably is involved in structuring,” Roskam said. Georgia gun shop owner Andrew Clyde said he didn’t know about the reporting law when he got an insurance policy that only covered losses up to $10,000 if they happened outside his store in Athens. Clyde and three other business owners appeared before Roskam’s subcommittee Wednesday to recount how the IRS had seized their bank accounts. Because of his insurance policy, Clyde said, he didn’t like carrying more than $10,000 in cash between his store and the bank. JOHN KOS K INEN GAO says veterans’ health care costs a ‘high risk’ for taxpayers WASHINGTON (AP) — Veterans’ health care is a “high risk” budget issue that threatens to cost taxpayers tens of billions of dollars unless longstanding problems are addressed, government auditors warned Wednesday. The nonpartisan Government Accountability Office said health care costs at the Department of Veterans Affairs have almost tripled since 2002 — to more than $59 billion a year — as a result of the Iraq and Afghanistan wars and the aging of Vietnam-era veterans. Costs are likely to continue to rise as the VA responds to “serious and longstanding problems with veterans’ access to care,” the GAO said. The report praised a new law overhauling the VA in the wake of a scandal over long wait times for veterans seeking care. But it said officials must ensure veterans obtain needed care, whether from the VA or from outside providers authorized under the 2014 law. “While timely and cost-effective access to needed health care services is essential, it also is imperative that VA ensures the quality and safety of the services it provides,” the report said. The GAO report, issued every other year, identified 32 “high risk” areas that could cause significant budget problems because of waste, fraud, mismanagement or structural flaws. The list includes Medicare and Medicaid, as well as a host of Pentagon and nuclear security programs and the national flood insurance program, among others. In 2013, the GAO added climate change to the high-risk list. The GAO report is the latest in a series of reports and investigations highlighting problems at the VA, which has been under intense scrutiny since a whistleblower reported last year that dozens of veterans died while awaiting treatment at the Phoenix VA hospital, and that appointment records were manipulated to hide the delays. A report by the VA’s inspector general last year said workers falsified waiting lists while their supervisors looked the other way or even directed it, resulting in chronic delays for veterans seeking care and bonuses for managers who appeared — falsely — to meet on-time goals. The Government Accountability Office said Veterans Affairs health care costs have almost tripled since 2002 — to more than $59 billion a year — as a result of the Iraq and Afghanistan wars and the aging of Vietnam-era veterans.

Page A4 | The News Herald | Thursday, February 12, 2015 NATIO N & WORLD Study ties more deaths, types of disease to smoking The Associated Press Breast cancer, prostate cancer, and even routine infections. A new report ties these and other maladies to smoking and says an additional 60,000 to 120,000 deaths each year in the United States probably are because of tobacco use. The study by the American Cancer Society and several universities, published in today’s New England Journal of Medicine, looks beyond lung cancer, heart disease and other conditions already tied to smoking, and the 480,000 U.S. deaths attributed to them each year. “Smokers die, on average, more than a decade before nonsmokers,” and in the U.S., smoking accounts for one of every five deaths, Dr. Graham Colditz, an epidemiologist at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis, wrote in a commentary in the journal. The report shows current estimates “have substantially underestimated the burden of smoking on society,” he wrote. About 18 percent of U.S. adults smoke. Researchers looked at almost 1 million Americans 55 and older taking part in five studies, including the National Institutes of HealthAARP Diet and Health Study, since 2000. They tracked the participants’ health for about 10 years and compared deaths from various causes among smokers, never smokers and former smokers, taking into account other things that can influence risk such as alcohol use. Death rates were two to three times higher among current smokers than among people who never smoked. Most of the excess deaths in smokers were due to 21 diseases already tied to smoking, including 12 types of cancer, heart disease and stroke. But researchers also saw death rates in smokers were twice as high from other conditions such as kidney failure, infections, liver cirrhosis and some respiratory diseases not previously tied to smoking. The report also strengthens evidence tying breast cancer and prostate cancer to smoking. It finds that female smokers’ risk of dying of breast cancer is 30 percent greater than for nonsmokers. Male smokers have a 40 percent greater risk of dying of prostate cancer than nonsmokers do, the researchers found. U.S. budget deficit running 6.2 percent higher than last year WASHINGTON (AP) — The federal govern ment ran a bigger deficit in January, push ing the imbalance so far this budget year up 6.2 percent from the same period a year ago. The Treasury Department said Wednesday the deficit for January was $17.5 billion com pared to $10.3 billion a year ago. For the first four months of the budget year that began in October, the deficit widened to $194.2 billion from $182.8 billion during the same period last year. Last year’s deficit benefited from a $24 bil lion special payment Freddie Mac made for the support it received during the financial crisis. The Congressional Budget Office forecasts a deficit of $468 billion for the full 2015 budget year, 3.1 percent lower than in 2014. For the current budget year, government revenues total $1.05 trillion, an increase of 8.7 percent from the same period a year ago. Government spending totals $1.24 trillion, up 8.3 percent over last year. The deficit in 2014 narrowed to $483.3 bil lion from $680.2 billion in 2013. Before that, the country posted four straight years of deficits topping $1 trillion as the government grappled with revenue losses from the Great Recession and increased spending in such areas as unem ployment benefits and food stamps. President Barack Obama unveiled last week his new budget proposal, which projects the 2015 deficit to rise to $583 billion, sharply higher than the CBO’s latest estimate. Obama’s new budget is asking Congress for authorization to spend $4 trillion next year and projects a 2016 deficit of $474 billion. Condo parking dispute sparks slaying of trio CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) — A longrunning parking dispute between neighbors motivated a man to kill a woman, her newlywed husband and her sister at a condominium complex near the University of North Carolina, police said Wednesday. A Muslim advocacy organization asked authorities to address speculation — much of it on social media — about possible religious bias in Tuesday’s shooting of the three Muslims. “We understand the concerns about the possibility that this was hate-motivated, and we will exhaust every lead to determine if that is the case,” Chapel Hill police Chief Chris Blue said. The couple had graduated from North Carolina State, and one was studying to be a dentist at UNC. The sister was an undergraduate at N.C. State. UNC’s chancellor called it a loss for both campus communities, and the school held a vigil Wednesday evening. Craig Stephen Hicks, 46, was charged with three counts of first-degree murder in the shooting of Deah Shaddy Barakat, 23, and wife Yusor Mohammad, 21, both of Chapel Hill, and Razan Mohammad Abu-Salha, 19, of Raleigh. Hicks appeared briefly in court Wednesday. He is being held without bond and will be appointed a public defender. Police said Hicks turned himself in and was cooperating. They said the preliminary investigation showed the parking dispute was the motive. Hicks’ wife, Karen Hicks, and a former roommate of Barakat confirmed Craig Hicks had been part of a long-running parking dispute. Imad Ahmad, who said he lived with Barakat for more than a year, said Hicks would knock on their door about once a month to complain the two men were parking in one of the spaces designated for visitors in addition to the one space reserved for each residence. But outrage spread among some American Muslims who viewed the homicides as an outgrowth of anti-Muslim opinions. Durham district attorney Roger Echols said he could not discuss motive or whether Hicks could be charged with a hate crime. U.S. Attorney Ripley Rand said his office was monitoring the investigation but that it was not yet a federal investigation. He said the shooting appeared to be “an isolated incident.” CRAIG STEPHEN HI C KS AP Flowers sit outside the apartment building where three people were killed Tuesday in Chapel Hill, N.C.

Jason Peters, director of transportation development for FDOT’s Northwest Florida office, spoke at the Bay County Economic Development Alliance’s investors meeting, outlining several multimillion-dollar road projects prepping for construction in the area. The most significant projects include a $75 million project to construct a flyover at the intersection of U.S. 98 and 23rd Street in Panama City, and a roadway expansion project moving State 390 from two to six lanes. Peters also looked toward the future, relaying several projects moving down the pipeline with feasibility and environmental studies underway. The department is in the plan development stages for a project to widen State 388, formerly County 388, between State 79 and State 77 from two to four lanes, and is conducting a study to explore the feasibility of moving U.S. 231 from four to six lanes between U.S. 98 and State 20. Other efforts outside of Bay County include moving several of the Panhandle’s north-south corridors from two to four lanes to provide better access to Interstate 10. “Basically from (U.S.) 231 back to the west, all of our northsouth corridors are either under construction ... for four lanes or will soon be under construction for four lanes,” Peters said. “As a transportation agency, and as we all should be, we should always be looking down the road for what’s next.” However, Andrew Levy, EDA member and chairman of the Bay County Chamber of Commerce, relayed skepticism about future funding opportunities stemming from a recent delegation meeting with Bay County’s new representatives and state agency officials in Tallahassee. “We’ve been extremely successful in securing funding over the last several years,” Levy said. “Our delegation in Tallahassee was extremely skeptical ... that we’re going to be seeing transportation money in the future for a lot of these long-range projects.” Levy encouraged EDA members to keep the area’s long-term transportation plans in focus in conjunction with FDOT and the Bay County Transportation Planning Organization as the Legislature moves toward a new session. “We kind of had a perfect storm with the way our legislative delegation was structured and the focus that they had on these funds; they were pretty clear we may not have that going forward,” he said. “As a community, with the growth we already have teed up, to continue that growth we’re really going to have to coordinate together to get that funding in the future.” Levy’s comments were echoed by Lynn Haven Mayor Walter Kelly, Bay County Commissioner Bill Dozier and Jorge Gonzalez, senior vice president of the St. Joe Co. “For this group, I don’t think there’s a more strategic partner than the FDOT,” Gonzalez said, describing the lobby for state trans portation funds as an extremely competitive sport. “Infrastructure, when you really look at it, is the key to economic development.” A NDRE W WARDLO W News Herald le photo A vehicle turns off State 79 onto County 388 in 2012.

Work to start on Freeport Publix By DUSTY RICKETTS 315-4448 | @DustyRnwfdn FREEPORT — Construc tion will start next month on the new Publix grocery. A groundbreaking cer emony has been scheduled for 11 a.m. March 17 for the store on U.S. 331 across from JB’s Chinese Buffet, about a half-mile south of State 20. Construction is expected to be completed before the end of the year. “I’m excited about the idea of them coming here and opening up, and I think the community in general is just very excited about it,” Freeport Mayor Russ Barley said. The Publix media rela tions department did not return messages seeking comment. The new store is expected to be modeled after the roughly 56,000-square-foot Publix in Santa Rosa Beach. Barley said it is expected to be much larger than Freeport’s only other gro cery, Food Depot on State 20. The store will be the 12th Publix in Walton, Okaloosa and Santa Rosa counties. Barley said some Freeport residents drive to Santa Rosa Beach, Bluewater Bay or Niceville to shop at Publix now. “I think the convenience is going to be great,” he said. Barley said he believes the Publix, along with the completion of the U.S. 331 four-lane project later this year, will spur new develop ment in Freeport. He would like to see a hotel and more fast-food restaurants come to the city, he said. Barley said city staff recently met with repre sentatives from a fast-food chain who told them they are strongly considering opening a restaurant in Freeport. “I think we’ll see diversi fied types of businesses and think it’s going to all happen within the next couple of years,” Barley said. “You’re going to see a lot of change.” Frito-Lay snacks help PepsiCo’s profit top forecasts PURCHASE, N . Y . (AP) — Stronger sales of Frito-Lay snacks helped PepsiCo deliver a quarterly profit that came in above Wall Street expectations Wednesday. The better-than-expected results sent its shares up in premarket trading, even though the company’s profit was dragged down by weakening foreign currencies and restructuring charges. During the period, PepsiCo said revenue for its Frito-Lay North America division rose 3.5 percent, boosted by a mix of stronger volume and higher prices. The unit, the company’s biggest division, sells such popular snacks as Doritos, Cheetos and Tostitos. For the period ending Dec. 27, revenue for PepsiCo’s Americas beverages unit rose 3 percent as higher prices offset flat volume. In North America, the company said volume of non-carbonated drinks rose 4 percent. For the period ending Dec. 27, PepsiCo earned $1.31 billion, or 87 cents per share. Excluding onetime items, it earned $1.12 per share. That topped the $1.08 per share analysts expected, according to Zacks Investment Research. Revenue slipped to $19.95 billion, but topped the $19.78 billion analysts expected.

Box 1940, Panama City, FL 32402; or email to 49 FORUM Page A6 | The News Herald | Thursday, February 12, 2015 Viewpoints A curveball for law enforcement S pend enough time with a law enforcement officer, and you are likely to hear a few stories, and occasionally, those tales will include a sense of dismay about what sometimes happens inside a courtroom. They’ll point out that everything they do and every step they take in an investigation into a crime likely will be second guessed, and their character and their motives often will be called into question. They don’t care for this process. Of course, the end result is supposed to be a fair system for the accused who remains innocent until proven guilty. In America, we take for granted that a person accused of crime will have access to a lawyer and will be able to use any legal means at his disposal to poke holes in the prosecution’s case. We shouldn’t. There are far too many places in this world where an accusation is synonymous with guilt and an accusation is all it takes for an innocent person to be sent to prison or even death. However, if their side of the story is accurate, Bay County Sheriff’s officials have reason to be miffed with a recent ruling in a case against Christopher Robert Smith. Smith was charged with acting as a bail bondsman and taking people to jail in August 2012 after he previously pleaded no contest to a past felony. His felony conviction meant Smith could not be legally licensed as a bondsman or carry a firearm. BCSO investigators, acting on a complaint from the Florida Department of Financial Services Division of Insurance Fraud, went to Smith’s home to question him. According to BCSO, Smith gave investigators verbal and written permission to search his home, which they did until Smith became concerned and verbally revoked his permission. Sheriff Frank McKeithen told The News Herald’s Zack McDonald that during the initial search, Smith even instructed officers how to enter his vehicle, which had numerous articles of clothing with a “fugitive recovery” inscription. After permission to search was rescinded, BCSO obtained a search warrant based, at least in part, on what they had already seen inside the home when they had permission to be inside the home. It seems like there is a difference between a warrantless search and a search made in good faith after getting permission from the accused. Given the evidence he had before him, which apparently lacked some of these details and crucial testimony from a Division of Insurance Fraud agent who was unavailable for the hearing, Circuit Judge Brantley Clark ruled in favor of the defense. As a result, some of the evidence against Smith won’t be shown to jurors during his trial, but as of this writing, the case against him is moving forward and some incriminating statements he made to investigators will be part of the trial. If all this is news, it may only be because it is rare for local law enforcement to lose these kinds of motions. In the normal course of a trial, searches, confessions and every other part of a criminal case are attacked — as they should be — by the defense. While win and loss statistics aren’t readily available we can say, given our experience as court watchers, that BCSO and other local law enforcement agencies win much more of these things than they lose. That is not to say that there is not, perhaps, room for improvement. We have long called on local law enforcement officials to consider recording their interactions with the public more often than is currently done. A body camera on an officer, for instance, would have shown exactly what Smith said to whom and, perhaps, could have resulted in a different outcome. A body camera and other recordings certainly would not be a panacea, but a recording could give everyone a better and more honest baseline from which to start. A courtroom is not only meant to free the innocent and convict the guilty, it also is supposed to be a place to find the truth. And while we all know videos don’t tell the whole story, the person on the right side of any debate about the truth should welcome them.N ATE B EELER | The Columbus Dispatch Fairness and justice Our V IEW T he notion that the work of Nobel Prize winner Elinor Ostrum debunked Garret Hardins’ theory of the Tragedy of the Commons only goes to show that the writer of “Shell Island needs less regulation, not more” (Feb. 9) failed to read the entirety of Ms. Ostrum’s work. According to the Nobel Prize winner, a common resource can be managed in a sustainable way only if steps are taken that provide rules, boundaries and oversight as well as a scale of graduated sanctions for those who violate the rules and boundaries. While many visitors (and land owners) may have taken steps in recent years to better preserve the island, the issue is much larger than the impacts of a few well-meaning island goers. The writer continues to complain that the State Park failed to restore the resources that better protect the dunes following Hurricane Opal, and yet now seems to suggest that further regulations (management plans) are not needed. Do humans self-regulate? My observations over the past six decades suggest they do not or, at least, do so poorly. That is why we have speed limits around schools, and penalties for shoplifting and littering. Want to see the tragedy of the commons in action? Try standing around an all-you-caneat food bar when they bring out the crab legs. There are countless studies that further identify failures in human self-regulation, and we have all been subjected to the consequences of those failures, such as crime, teen pregnancy, gambling, domestic violence, alcoholism, drug addiction and at a more personal level, eating binges, spending sprees and procrastination. Industries, left unregulated through the 1940s and 1950s, were happy to dump pollutants into the environment anywhere they chose to until the Cuyahoga River actually caught fire in 1969. I doubt our local industries would have voluntarily spent millions of dollars installing scrubbers on their smoke stacks had they not been required to under government regulations, and we would still be breathing the toxic consequences of their freedom to self-regulate. Anyone who pays an ounce of attention to the world they live in can witness, on a daily basis, the failure of self-regulation. Count the number of cigarette butts littering the ground outside any local convenience store or traffic intersection. Finally, the idea that we need to be able to use the resources that our tax dollars purchased underscores the need to educate the public on the meaning of conservation. We want to go to the island, but we need to preserve the natural resource in a sustainable way. This requires, as Ms. Ostrum pointed out, rules, boundaries and sanctions for failure to obey the rules. We must give the State Park staff the tools (updated management plan and funding) and the authority to implement the plan once approved. This plan will provide the very framework suggested by Ms. Ostrum to sustain this valuable natural resource for generations to come. R ON M ERRITT Lynn Haven Boom!

Brady Calhoun, Editorial Page Editor 747-5075 | @sbradycalhoun O xfam reports that the richest 1 percent of people in the world own 48 percent of the world’s wealth. Many claim we should be alarmed by income inequality because it hampers upward mobility. Others argue that because income is distributed so unevenly, justice and fairness require income redistribution. Let’s look at fairness and justice. What constitutes fairness and justice has been debated for centuries. Widespread agreement has proved to be elusive at best. However, I think an important part of an intelligent discussion about fairness and justice is the recognition that knowing results of a process cannot establish whether there is fairness or justice. Take a simple example. Suppose Tom, Dick and Harry play a weekly game of poker. The game’s result is that Tom wins 75 percent of the time. Dick and Harry, respectively, win 15 percent and 10 percent of the time. Knowing the results of the game permits us to say absolutely nothing about whether there has been poker fairness or justice. Tom’s disproportionate winnings may be a result of his being an astute player or a clever cheater. To determine whether there has been poker justice, we must ask process questions. Was there obedience to neutral game rules, such as those of Hoyle’s? Were the cards unmarked and dealt from the top of the deck? Did the players play voluntarily? If the answers to these questions are affirmative, there was poker justice, regardless of the outcome, including Tom’s winning 75 percent of the time. Similarly, a person’s income is a result of something. Knowing that one person’s yearly income is $500,000 and another’s is $12,000 tells us nothing about economic justice or fairness. To determine whether there has been economic justice, one has to ask process questions. Most people — including economists, much to their shame — who discuss income inequality fail to acknowledge or make explicit that income is a result of something. As such, a result cannot be used to determine fairness or justice. To determine whether there has been economic justice or fairness, we must go beyond results and examine processes. Let’s look at a couple of examples, among hundreds, of processes that cause economic unfairness. Taxi owner-operators can earn an annual income of $70,000 or more. Many people can manage to buy a car and the necessary items to become an owner-operator for less than $30,000. Here’s the unfairness: In order for someone to operate a taxi legally, many cities require the owner to purchase a license, or medallion. In Philadelphia, Chicago, Boston and New York, medallions cost between $350,000 and $700,000. The effect of these licensing requirements is to close the market to most prospective entrants and thereby create economic injustice. There have been instances in which managers of Housing and Urban Development low-income housing projects have wanted to repair dilapidated units by employing residents to perform some of the unskilled work, such as pulling out unsalvageable parts of the building and assisting skilled craftsmen. However, the DavisBacon Act, which covers federally financed or assisted construction, requires that the workers be paid union wages. If high union wages must be paid, the manager is forced to hire only skilled laborers, very few of whom are residents of the project. That means these workers earn less. It is economic injustice to deny a person who is ready, willing and able to work the opportunity to do so. There are hundreds, possibly thousands, of examples in which the economic game is rigged. Instead of focusing on what’s claimed to be an unfair income distribution, we need to examine whether there is injustice in the rules of the game. But that’s whistlin’ “Dixie.” Politicians receive large financial contributions from vested interests to write laws that rig the game.

“We apologize to our customers for the inconve nience,” spokeswoman Kelly Thrasher said. “While we were closed temporarily, we appropriately addressed all the issues and were able to reopen later that afternoon. We make every effort to pro vide a clean, safe environ ment for all our customers and associates.” The most recent closure occurred Jan. 21 at the Subway at 241 S. Tyndall Parkway. DBPR inspectors observed two live roaches on a shelf under the sandwich preparation line in the front counter, two other live roaches under the bread oven, one live roach behind the hand sink and one live roach in a cabinet under the drive-through toaster, inspectors reported. Inspectors then found four dead roaches under the front bread oven, five dead roaches in a cabinet by the soft drink station in the drive-through area and five dead roaches underneath the front sandwich prep area, according to reports. Owner Travis Walker said Subway’s corporate inspectors came by monthly and did not find any insects. He blamed a former exterminator, who has since been replaced, for the intrusion. “They came in every month to spray and inspect,” Walker said. “We have a clean store, so as far as I’m concerned, they were the ones not doing their job.” DBPR also noted the meatballs were kept between 117 and 123 degrees — less than the required 135 degrees. The restaurant was allowed to reopen the following day, and Walker said they have not had an issue since replacing the exterminator. WAR POWERS from Page A1 skepticism, with much of the dissatisfaction centered on his attempt to find a political middle ground with respect to ground forces. Republicans expressed unhappiness that he had chosen to exclude any long-term commitment of ground forces, while some Democrats voiced dismay that he had opened the door to deployment at all. Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., also said Obama had ruled out air support for U.S.-trained rebels battling Syrian President Bashar Assad, adding, “That’s immoral.” Under Obama’s proposal, the use of military force against Islamic State fighters would be authorized for three years, unbounded by national borders. The fight could be extended to any “closely related successor entity” to the Islamic State organization that has overrun parts of Iraq and Syria, imposed a stern form of Sharia law and killed several hostages it has taken, Americans among them. “Make no mistake. This is a difficult mission,” Obama said in seeking action against a group that he said threatens America’s own security. He said it will take time to dislodge the terrorists, especially from urban areas. “But our coalition is on the offensive. ISIL is on the defensive, and ISIL is going to lose.” The 2002 congressional authorization that preceded the American-led invasion of Iraq would be repealed under the White House proposal, a step some Republicans were unhappy to see. But a separate authorization that was approved by Congress after the Sept. 11, 2001, terror attacks would remain in force, to the consternation of some Democrats. At the heart of the debate, the struggle to define any role for American ground forces is likely to determine the outcome of the administration’s request for legislation. White House spokesman Josh Earnest said the proposal was intentionally ambiguous on that point to give the president flexibility, although the approach also was an attempt to bridge a deep divide in Congress. While asking lawmakers to bar long-term, large-scale ground combat operations like those in Afghanistan and Iraq, Obama said he wants the flexibility for ground combat operations “in other more limited circumstances.” Those include rescue missions, intelligence collection and the use of special operations forces in possible military action against Islamic State leaders. While he proposed legislation to terminate in three years, Obama said, “It is not a timetable. It is not announcing that the mission is completed at any given period. What it is saying is that Congress should revisit the issue at the beginning of the next president’s term.” Whatever the outcome, Obama’s request puts Congress on the path toward a vote that could reverberate unpredictably for years. A post-9/11 request from then-President George W. Bush for authorization to use military force against Iraq was intensely controversial, and it played a role in Obama’s successful campaign for the White House in 2008. BAY EATERIES from Page A1 TREATMENT PLANT from Page A1 “We have a static mixer here,” Hamm said Wednesday as he stood next to the pipe where the water enters the plant. He pointed to a spot where ferric sulfate is injected into the water. “This has static mixers with a big screw suspended in there, so when water pushes through, it stirs the water and mixes the chemicals in,” Hamm said. “This is an alternative injection point for lime. It was engineered to go here.” Two water lines come through Williams Bayou to the plant — one 6 miles to the plant and the other extending 12 miles to the paper mill in Panama City. “We supply the mill raw water and sell it to them,” Hamm said. “When they built the dedicated line to the water plant, which was in the mid-1980s, they ran a tie line to the paper mill line. If this line ever goes out, we can get water from that line again for the water plant. It’s like a redundant system.” The drinking water plant was upgraded in 2007 to be able to treat more water, and now can process up to 60 million gallons a day. The most the plant ever put out was 43 million gallons on July 4, 2006, which was the closest it has ever come to not being able to meet demand. “That made everything a little hairy,” Hamm said. “That’s why we did the upgrade. It wasn’t running out (of water supply) but it was pins and needles time.” During Spring Break, the plant processes about 30 million gallons of water a day. “The big season is from Memorial Day to Labor Day, especially on the weekends,” Hamm said. “The beach uses a lot of water.” The reservoir is the county’s only source of fresh drinking water, but heavy rains wash dirt, debris and other compounds into it. Employees must tweak the chemical load that purifies the water. “If it’s not in a heavy rain period, it is mostly Econfina spring water, so at times it’s almost difficult to treat because there is no solids in the water; it’s that clear,” Hamm said. “But when we get a heavy rain event, that’s a different story. We have a machine that measures the color of the water. Generally, the water on that machine reads about 50 or 60 color units. When we have a heavy rain event due to the runoff, and the tannins that we get from the runoff, that color can go as high as 600, so it’s 10-fold, and it takes more chemicals.” Near the end of the treatment process the organics that have been removed from the water are stored in a mushy pile of black muck. The county pays a disposal company, Greensouth Solutions, $30 per ton to haul off the muck. Hamm said the county spends a couple of hundred thousand dollars a year to remove the muck, which is taken to a local farm because it is a good fertilizer. “Mostly, that is ferric sulfate,” he said. “That is iron, and the organics that it has removed.” Transporting the muck “comes along with a DEP permit. We can’t even take it off site. It has to be professionally removed.” Hamm said Bay County is blessed to have Deer Point reservoir as its drinking water source. At one time, Tampa Bay-area legislators proposed extending a line up here that would tap into it and address their water shortage, he said. “I think we’re very fortunate,” he said. “You have 250 million gallons a day coming of Econfina Springs into a captured reservoir like that. I mean, it is a little more difficult at times to treat than groundwater, because groundwater is very stable. But in the end, when you are looking at chemical costs, you’ve got a very soft water at a very economical price.” HEATHER LEIPHART | The News Herald Plant superintendent Donald Hamm collects a water sample at the Bay County Water Treatment Plant on Wednesday.

Want fresh air and exercise? Go hiking. It’s healthier than golf and doesn’t cost you or taxpayers a penny. I’m not an unhappy native. I am, however, tired of hearing some other natives moaning about all our visitors. It’s all they seem to do. Restore oyster industry . How about restoring the ocean floor where huge tar balls still remain from the BP oil spill? Restore that! When reading a Squall, keep in mind that one person’s rant does not equal a majority opinion. I look forward to that marina development downtown. It’s gonna be great. Taking some time, though. I saw a cop in the parking lot and told him to be careful. I said those light poles jump out in front of you, out of nowhere. This snowbird is measuring the fun times and happy hours this year by collecting the wine corks and watching the pile grow. Smart move. Now the spring breakers will drive over the bridge to continue their binge drinking. What could possibly go wrong with that? For us snowbirds, could we have a little more hockey to offset the amount of basketball news in the paper and on TV? Snowbirds bring kindness, civility, intelligence and cheer to P.C. Why is a little gentrification such a bitter pill for some squallers? Today we had customers from Ontario, Minnesota, Wisconsin and New York. Had delightful conversations with all. It is all in the attitude, folks! If not for all our myriad of visitors we’d have a town full of some miserable folks who don’t like anything new or anyone different. If they took your golf course away, take up pickleball; cross between badminton, tennis and pingpong invented in 1965 near Seattle!

D YE By COLLIN BREAUX 747-5081 | @PCNHCollinB PANAMA CITY — Ros enwald High students got a lesson on voting and politics this week, courtesy of Proj ect Democracy. Project Democracy, a voting awareness campaign conducted by Bay County Supervisor of Elections Mark Andersen, visited Ros enwald on Monday. He was joined by Libertarian Party of Florida Treasurer James Morris and Bay County Republican Party represen tative Frances Gordon. A Democratic represen tative usually is at the event but was not at Rosenwald, according to Andersen. The visit was a chance for students to ask questions and to get involved in voting, he said. Rosenwald is one of eight schools visited for Project Democracy. “It’s not hard to get reg istered to vote,” Andersen told the students. Voter registration forms were handed out as Ander sen asked the juniors and seniors to hold them in the air. “It is all about you,” he said. He told the students they should pick who their lead ers are. When Andersen asked who believed all poli ticians are crooks and liars, some raised their hands. According to Andersen, a week and a half before his visit to Rosenwald he had “been wandering around the county” speaking at schools. A Twitter account for BayVotes, belonging to Andersen, posted photos of Project Democracy at Ruth erford High, Bay High and Deane Bozeman School. Andersen said voters have responsi bilities, such as mak ing it clear to local election authorities where they live, get ting absentee ballots and handling early voting. He added that voters shouldn’t be afraid to call an elected official. English teacher Debra Head commented dur ing Andersen’s talk that she often hears students say their vote doesn’t mat ter. Andersen replied that political parties focus on people who vote. The event also featured Morris and Gordon laying out their per sonal political philosophies and the platforms of their parties. “I believe in smaller gov ernment,” Morris said. He also spoke to students about political involvement. “Martin Luther King talked about voting. He talked about empower ment,” Morris said. Gordon said she didn’t care if stu dents registered Republican, add ing the Republican Party was currently “kind of lost.” “Not too many people look like me,” said Gordon, a black woman, in reference to the Republican Party. Gordon said the Demo cratic Party got it right when they voted for the first black president. After the candidates spoke, Andersen asked stu dents what they would do to make the country better. “You are important,” he said. Students get lesson on voting MARK ANDERSEN supervisor of elections SNAKE from Page B1 Demarco admitted to police that she shot at the snake, according to PCPD reports. The children were about 20 to 50 yards away when Demarco took one shot and missed. She was arrested later and charged with possess ing a firearm on school grounds and discharging the gun on the campus. Demarco argued that none of the authority figures pres ent took action to protect the children. Prosecutors agreed Wednesday to drop the gun charges against Demarco. Her combined bond of $3,000 also was released. BICYCLIST from Page B1 Ward crashed head-on with the SUV while it was traveling about 45 mph. Ward and his bicycle were thrown onto the pavement, police reported. He was rushed to the hospital with severe injuries, but was stabilized later, police said. Police still are investigating the crash. Wagner, of Youngstown, had not been charged with a violation as of Wednesday afternoon. The wreck closed the northbound lane of State 77 for about two hours in front of the Healthplex fitness center near the intersection of Baldwin Road, PCPD reported. before Benson was found dead, he and two other men robbed White. One witness said Benson put a gun to White’s head and threatened to kill him, but one of the two other men stopped him. Benson then allegedly robbed White of his jewelry, cellphone, money and drugs, investigators reported. Benson then showed up at Bambi’s Dollhouse at 2915 U.S. Business 98 about 2:30 a.m. and tried to sell some marijuana one witness said belonged to White. The witness tried to call White sev eral times to alert him and eventually received a text message from White stating, “Watch Benson and see what kind of car he gets in,” according to BCSO reports. Authorities said White then called his uncle with the details. Redmon allegedly drove that night from his home in Luverne, Ala., to Panama City. According to cellphone records, Redmon was near the mobile home park on Everett Avenue when the phone was turned off for 19 minutes, the period when officials believe Benson was killed, BCSO said. Redmon then drove briefly to Callaway before he returned to Alabama. Court records do not indicate Redmon has been extradited to Bay County or charged in connection with the shooting. BCSO could not be reached to comment about Redmon’s status. White appeared before a Bay County judge Wednes day. His bond was set at $250,000. WHITE from Page B1 F REDRICUS WHITE From staff reports SILVER SPRINGS — Following an undercover Internet investigation, Marion County sheriff’s deputies said they have discovered a for mer Bay County man’s huge col lection of child pornography. Now investiga tors hope any pos sible victims will come forward.Robert Earl Toole, 50, of Silver Springs, was jailed Tuesday on 20 counts of possession of child pornography, accord ing to an arrest affidavit by Sgt. Michael Dodd. The charges relate to just 20 videos among 1 terabyte — 1,000 giga bytes — of child porn and child erotica that investi gators reported finding on hard drives at his home. When interviewed in a patrol car, Toole admitted to possessing child porn that he collected through peer-to-peer sharing programs, according to the affidavit. He said he had been collecting it for years and offered to show the detective his stash. It was on two hard drives in his bedroom, the affi davit states. Dodd said some of the images and videos depicting sexual abuse and voyeur ism appeared to be homemade, and Toole admitted making them. In addition to the child porn charges, Toole was arrested on one count of possession of more than 20 grams of marijuana and one count of possession of drug paraphernalia. He is being held in the Marion County Jail on $406,000 bond. The sheriff’s office is asking anyone with infor mation about Toole — or with information about possible victims — to call Dodd at 369-3535 or Crime Stoppers at 368-STOP. Deputies: Man had terabyte of child porn ROBERT TOOLE NEWARK, N.J. (AP) — A Florida man who fed eral prosecutors in New Jersey said bragged about making up to $50 million a month by running an international stock manip ulation scheme using a practice known as layer ing has been released on $750,000 bond. Aleksandr Milrud, 50, of Aventura, made his initial court appearance Wednesday in Newark after being arrested in his home state last month and charged with wire fraud and securities fraud conspiracy. He was released by Judge Michael Hammer and barred from trading in securities while he is on home detention in Florida. Milrud’s attorney, Michael Bachner, said he is still reviewing the allegations. It is the first federal securities fraud pros ecution of someone accused of using the highfrequency trading strat egy, according to U.S. Attorney Paul Fishman. Prosecutors said Mil rud recruited stock trad ers in China and Korea to place high-speed buy or sell orders and then quickly cancel them. The activity would artificially raise or lower the stock prices and allow traders to exploit the price moves to make profits on trades. High-speed traders use computers to sift through price changes and data and news feeds to buy and sell stocks in fractions of a second. Man accused of stock manipulations released


LOCA L & STATE Page B4 | The News Herald | Thursday, February 12, 2015 The Associated Press MIAMI 4 dead in plane crash in rural area Florida authorities said a twin-engine propeller plane crashed in a rural part of Miami-Dade County shortly after takeoff Wednesday, killing all four people aboard. Federal Aviation Administration spokeswoman Kathleen Bergen identified the plane as a Beechcraft 1900 that had been headed to Providenciales in the Turks and Caicos Islands. She said the plane was attempting to return to Miami Executive Airport when it crashed about 2:45 p.m. All four people on board the aircraft died in the crash, said Miami-Dade Fire Rescue spokesman Lt. Arnold Piedrahita. He said the pilot reported engine problems after takeoff, then clipped a power line before the plane hit the ground and burst into flames. No buildings on the ground were damaged in an area dominated by farmland, although one large structure was not far away. “We have found no signs of survivors,” Piedrahita said. “We know the plane experienced some form of engine trouble.” The identities of the people killed were not immediately released. NEW PORT RICHEY Triple fatal shooting suspects sought A reward is being offered for information leading to the arrests of two suspects in the fatal shooting of three men north of Tampa. Crime Stoppers of Tampa Bay is offering a $3,000 reward for information that helps them find 26-year-old Christopher Lee Duncan and 38-year-old Dora Delgado. They are being sought in connection with the deaths of Louis Wayne Lunceford, Justin Huckeby and Shane Newland. Pasco County Sheriff’s deputies said a fourth person escaped and is expected to recover. They have not released that person’s name. ORLANDO Orange County bans distributing materials A Central Florida school board has voted to ban the distribution of religious or political material at schools after a group wanted to hand out Satanic coloring books. The Orange County School Board in Orlando approved the new policy Tuesday night. The new policy will allow the passive distribution of some materials but nothing that is religious or political. The school district has allowed Bibles and materials from an atheist group to be distributed at schools for the past three years. ORLANDO Orlando airport traffic up in 2014 Travel at Orlando International Airport was up in 2014 from the previous year, and it was powered by international travelers. Airport officials said Tuesday that traffic was up 2.7 percent last year as 35.7 million travelers passed through the airport. International traffic increased by almost 10 percent, as 4.3 million international visitors arrived at the airport, setting a new record. TAMPA 2 rescued after sleeping in dumpster Authorities said a man and woman who were intoxicated had to be rescued after falling asleep in a dumpster that was later emptied into a garbage truck. Hillsborough County Sheriff’s officials said the couple had been sleeping in a dumpster outside a convenience store near Tampa early Wednesday. When the dumpster was emptied into the back of the garbage truck, they started screaming and banging on the sides of the truck. Rescue crews were called just after 5 a.m. They removed 37-year-old Donald L. Jordan and 49-year-old Lisa Sirbella from the truck. They were taken to Tampa General Hospital after complaining of back pain. 1129056 Struggling with Pr escription Painkillers? Opiate Dependence? Ma rk F. Mo ra n, M.D . Ge or ge G. Tr ac y, M.D .

M CAPE CANAVERAL (AP) — SpaceX launched an observatory inspired by for mer Vice President Al Gore toward a solar-storm lookout point a million miles away Wednesday. The unmanned Falcon 9 rocket blasted off on the third try in four days, successfully hoisting the spacecraft for NASA, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Adminis tration and Air Force. Gore — who dreamed up the idea for an environ mentally conscious, Earthgazing satellite 17 years ago — returned for the sunset launch. He was at the pre vious two attempts as well, eager to see his brainchild finally soar. Besides watch ing for solar outbursts, the observatory will provide continuous pictures of the full, sunlit side of Earth. It “will give us a wonder ful opportunity to see the beauty and fragility of our planet,” Gore said. He said he was grateful to all the sci entists and others who saw the mission to completion. Unlike Tuesday, the wind stayed within safety limits and everything else went SpaceX’s way — at least for launch. But rough seas forced the company to cancel its effort to land the leftover booster on an ocean platform. Waves towering three sto ries high crashed over the landing-zone platform float ing 370 miles off the Flor ida coast. Making matters worse, one of four engines needed to keep the platform steady was not working. With three hours remain ing in the countdown, SpaceX called off the radical landing test of the first-stage booster. It would have been just the second such experi ment; last month’s try ended in flames when the booster slammed into the platform, fell over and exploded. “Mega storm preventing droneship from remaining on station, so rocket will try to land on water,” SpaceX chief Elon Musk reported via Twitter shortly before liftoff. He said the chance of it surviving was less than 1 percent. Musk later said the rocket landed in the ocean within 10 miles of the target — and “nicely vertical!” Its descent was slowed by a pair of engine firings, with steer ing by fins attached to the booster. The launch was unaf fected by the cancellation of the test, a secondary, personal objective for Musk, SpaceX’s billionaire founder. Sending the observatory on its $340 million mission was the main event. It repre sented the first deep-space mission for the Southern California company, which also delivers supplies to the International Space Station and aims to haul astronauts as well in two years. NASA and NOAA pulled the sacked satellite out of storage almost a decade ago, and retooled it to monitor solar outbursts while also measuring ozone in Earth’s atmosphere and changes in the planet’s radiation. Origi nally named Triana after the Christopher Columbus lookout who first spotted the New World, the obser vatory is now nicknamed DSCOVR. DSCOVR will spend almost four months traveling 1 million miles, four times farther than the moon, to the so-called Lagrange point, a gravity-neutral position in direct line with the sun. At this lookout location, 92 mil lion miles from the sun, it will provide advance warnings of incoming geomagnetic storms that could disrupt power and communications on Earth, beginning around midsummer. A 17-year-old NASA satel lite, ACE for Advanced Com position Explorer, already is at the Lagrange or L-1 point, and DSCOVR will take over as the main solar-storm sen try, according to NOAA. The steady stream of Earth pictures, meanwhile, is expected to be high on the “wow” factor. The observatory’s camera will provide the first snapshots of the entire home planet, its full face lit by the sun, since NASA’s final Apollo moon-landing in 1972. Sub sequent Earth views have been stitched together from multiple images. “Just months from now, #DSCOVR will turn its gaze toward Earth and send back critical data on our plan et’s health,” Gore said in a tweet. “#DSCOVR will also pro vide a never before seen per spective of the Earth and the Moon together a few times a year,” he added. As for the scrubbed booster-landing test, SpaceX said there will be many other opportunities this year. The first and only plat form landing attempt to date occurred Jan. 10. The first-stage booster ran out of hydraulic fluid too soon and slammed into the platform, falling over and exploding. SpaceX added extra hydraulic fluid for the guid ance fins this time. But Musk and others warned the landing would be harder to nail because of the booster’s higher incoming speed from 80 miles up. Musk wants to start retrieving and reusing his rockets to save time and money. First-stage boosters normally just slam into the Atlantic and sink. SpaceX just signed a lease with the Air Force for an old launch pad that will be converted into a landing pad. Ocean platform landing test nixed SpaceX launches observatory on third attempt AP An unmanned Falcon 9 SpaceX rocket lifts off Wednesday from launch complex 40 at the Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Cape Canaveral. On board is the Deep Space Climate Observatory, which will head toward a solar-storm lookout point a million miles away. State BRIEF S

Rick Scott, according to a Sarasota attorney leading the case. Eight newspapers, two television stations, two media companies and a nonprofit investigative reporter organization have joined the suit, which claims Scott violated the state’s Sunshine Law in communicating with Cabinet members about a controversial change in leadership at the Florida Department of Law Enforcement. Last week, Scott apologized for how his office handled the December dismissal of FDLE chief Gerald Bailey, the state’s former top law enforcement officer. But the governor continued to deny allegations made by Bailey that he was fired, in part, for refusing to target an Orange County official in a criminal investigation. The complaint accuses Scott of using aides or “conduits” in polling the Cabinet on “his unilateral decision to force the resignation of the FDLE Commissioner and appoint a replacement without any notice to the public.” WASHINGTON Jeb Bush’s tech chief quits after Twitter comments A day after apologizing for making insensitive remarks on Twitter, the technology chief of Jeb Bush’s presidential campaign-in-waiting has resigned. Ethan Czahor, hired in January to serve as chief technology officer of the former Florida Republican governor’s Right to Rise political action committee, had posted messages on his personal Twitter account before his hiring that referred to women as “sluts” and made remarks about gay men. He resigned after racially insensitive comments were found on a website attributed to him. Bush spokesman Kristy Campbell noted Czahor had apologized for “regrettable and insensitive comments” that did not reflect the views of Bush or his organization. But she added that it was “appropriate for him to step aside.” By JIM TURNER The News Service of Florida TALLAHASSEE — A busi ness-backed plan to address the state’s water resources received initial support in a House committee Wednesday, though it continues to draw questions from environmental ists and Democrats. The wide-ranging water pol icy is being crafted separately from a plan to carry out a voterapproved constitutional amend ment that will require the state to spend hundreds of millions of dollars a year on land and water projects. The policy, in part, would impose what are known as “best management practices” for natural springs, the Ever glades and Lake Okeechobee. Also, it would direct watermanagement districts to imple ment a water-management plan across Central Florida. The State Affairs Commit tee voted 12-5 to advance the proposal. Among changes worked into the proposal over the past week is to include best-management practices from the Department of Environmental Protection for second-magnitude springs. The initial draft had the regu latory process only for larger, first-magnitude springs. However, the changes removed springs-protection zones, which are designed to regulate the impact of septic tanks and the flow of storm water and agricultural runoff into springs. House Minority Leader Mark Pafford, D-West Palm Beach, said the bill should rep resent House leadership’s call for a comprehensive statewide water policy. “Look, at the end of the day, we’ve got oysters that are dying, springs that are suffering, a Kis simmee River basin that needs more help in depleting some of the phosphorous, nutrients that are going into the lake,” Pafford said. “You’ve got tremendous outcry over the last number of years for the estuaries east and west of the lake (Okeechobee), and you’ve got a restoration plan for the Everglades that hasn’t been completed.” The regulatory bestmanagement practices are about 40 percent completed for the Everglades, while the regu latory requirements have been set for only eight of the state’s 33 first-magnitude springs. House State Affairs Chair man Matt Caldwell, R-North Fort Myers, said the rules for 11 additional springs are expected to be completed later this year. “ Look, at the end of the day, we’ve got oysters that are dying, springs that are suffering, a Kissimmee River basin that needs more help in depleting some of the phosphorous, nutrients that are going into the lake.” House Minority Leader Mark Pafford D-West Palm Beach TALLAHASSEE (AP) — An attempt by Florida’s new pris ons chief to keep investigators from discussing what’s going on inside the state’s prison sys tem has sparked a lawsuit. An attorney representing six Corrections Department employees asked a judge this week to block a new confiden tiality policy ordered by DOC Secretary Julie Jones. Tallahassee attorney Steve Andrews’s lawsuit says inves tigators could lose their jobs if they refuse to sign an agree ment by Feb. 19 saying they will follow the policy. The filing says the policy violates several state and federal laws and was undertaken to prevent state leg islators and others from asking about ongoing scandals. Jones was brought in last year by Gov. Rick Scott to deal with an agency under fire for suspicious deaths and poor treatment of prisoners. She has asked for millions of dollars in the coming year to boost staff ing and has suggested she may be forced to revamp contracts with private companies that provide health care to inmates. Several times this year, leg islators have questioned Jones and other top prison officials about inmate deaths and the use of force against inmates. Earlier this month, a Senate committee grilled the agency’s inspector general. Three days later, the department asked all of its investigators to abide by the new confidentiality policy. That policy said investiga tors cannot discuss or disclose information from open or closed cases. Jones said Wednesday the timing of the new policy was “terrible,” but she said it was needed to let investigators do their job without having to answer questions from other prison officials. She said it would also stop gossip and “water cooler talk.” She maintained the new policy would not stop the agency from responding to public record requests and was not prompted by the grilling of her inspector general. “There’s nothing nefarious; there’s no dots to connect,” Jones said. “This is no way meant to be punitive. This is to protect our inspectors as well as the people who are talking to these inspectors.” Jones denied that anyone would be fired if they refused to agree to the new policy. But she said the employees would be reassigned to new duties in the prison system. She also said the policy was drawn up by agency attorneys and followed state and federal laws. “I stand by the document, and I do not believe it violates the law,” Jones said. “I would welcome any scrutiny on this policy. If I got it wrong, we will rectify it.” Department of Corrections Secretary Julie Jones denied that anyone would be fired if they refused to agree to the new policy. But she said the employees would be reassigned to new duties in the prison system. Bid to keep prison inspectors quiet sparks lawsuit


DIVERSIONS A ces On BRIDGE: B obby W olff Son wants brothers to help pay mother’s rent DEAR AMY: After my father passed away, my mother was in a financial fix, so my wife and I took out a large loan and built a “mother-in-law unit” on our property. We asked for no money from my brothers to help build the nice little home. It has been a few years and I would like them to help with a small amount monthly toward her “rent,” as I have become disabled and we now are living only on my wife’s very modest income. My brothers have balked and say we don’t need the money as badly as I claim. In fairness — we are getting by. My brothers also point out that we own the house. They have a point there, too, because if we should ever sell, the little house will be worth something. However, when Mom needed a place to live, we were the only ones who stepped up to help; we also cover nearly all my mother’s living expenses, with little help from my brothers. I only want to be fair. What do you think? W A NT TO B E F A I RDEAR FA I R: You shouldn’t have to prove that you “need the money” in order to receive it. You aren’t asking for a handout from your brothers — this money is to help support your mother. If she lived elsewhere, would your brothers compensate her caregiver only if he “needed the money”? Regardless, your brothers (obviously) don’t intend to contribute. Keep track of your expenses and you may see some reimbursement from your mother’s estate. You are doing the right thing, and your true reward is in knowing it and enjoying the relationship that flows from it. DEAR AMY: My mother-in-law frequently orders birthday and holiday gifts for my family online, has them delivered directly to our house and then expects me to wrap them. I don’t want to seem ungrateful — I really do appreciate that she cares enough to buy nice presents for our family. But I have three kids, a fulltime job and many other obligations, and the time spent wrapping her gifts adds up. I totally get why she wouldn’t want to have the items shipped to her, only to wrap them and pay shipping again to send them to us. However, I think if the situation were reversed, I might pay for gift wrapping when placing the order — or at least ask first whether she had the time to take care of it. Am I being an unappreciative grump? W RA P-P R O A CH F UL DEAR WRA P P R O A CH F UL : On the one hand, I completely understand that this is a pain. On the other, you are being an unappreciative grump. You could definitely ask your mother-in-law: “Would you mind having the gifts wrapped at the source? I do a terrible job of it and this way your gifts are a complete surprise for everyone.” However, I’d like to suggest a way to change the script in your head when you receive unwrapped gifts. Repeat this to yourself (as you wrap): “My kids are so lucky to have a thoughtful grandmother who always remembers their special days, and I’m lucky to have a mother-in-law who cares so much. This is nothing more than an annoying little chore.” Alternatively, you could simply open the boxes to confirm their contents and then tape them right back up and slap a bow on the top. In this case, it really is the thought that counts. Just make sure that when your kids write their thank-yous, they don’t make a reference to the elegant cardboard wrapping.

LAS VEGAS (AP) — He couldn’t stop fighting the NCAA any more than he could give up chewing towels court side. Jerry Tarkanian built a basketball dynasty in the desert, but it was his decades-long battle with the NCAA that defined him far more than the wins and losses. The coach who won a national title at UNLV and made the school synony mous with basketball died Wednesday after several years of health issues. He was 84. Tarkanian battled an infection since he was hospitalized Monday in Las Vegas with breathing difficulty, said his son Danny Tarkanian, a point guard on his father’s teams in the 1980s. “He fought and fought and fought,” Danny Tarkanian told The Associated Press. Tarkanian put the run in the Run nin’ Rebels, taking them to four Final Fours and winning a national cham pionship in 1990 with one of the most dominant college teams ever. His teams were as flamboyant as the city, with light shows and fireworks for pre game introductions and celebrities jockeying for position on the so-called Gucci Row courtside. He ended up beating the NCAA, too, collecting a $2.5 million settlement after suing the organization for trying to run him out of college basketball. But he was bitter to the end about the way the NCAA treated him while coaching. “They’ve been my tormentors my whole life,” Tarkanian said at his retire ment news conference in 2002. “It will never stop.” Sports PANAMA CITY NEWS HERALD THURSDAY February 12, 2015 Section C Facebook: Twitter: @NH_Sports UNLV coach Jerry Tarkanian chews on his towel while watching his team play Duke in the 1990 title game.

The Bucs (19-9) host North Florida Christian (10-13) in the Region 1-3A quarterfinals and the Rams (23-3) welcome Suwannee (19-6) for the start of the 1-5A playoffs. Also tonight, Arnold plays at Rickards in 1-5A. The Bucs are attempting to become the first team in the school’s brief history to win a regional game. “Winning this game would be huge, not just for us, but for the school,” Bucs coach Erin Williams said Wednesday. “We’ve had six (NBH sports teams) win district, but I told the boys, let’s make history and be the first to win in the regionals.” A win also would surpass the expectations that most had for the Bucs at the start of the season. Wil liams said that silencing skeptics has become one of the primary sources of inspiration for the team. “They’ve all had the same goal all year, which is to win the game that nobody thinks we can,” Williams said. “A lot of people didn’t think we could beat North Florida Christian this year. A lot of people didn’t think we would have 19 wins this year. The boys have taken that and turned it into motivation. “They want to win the regional, want to win against NFC and show that we’re not just going to win the district, but we’ll go out and win the region as well.” NBH split with the Eagles during the regular season, losing the first matchup 51-44 at home and winning 47-38 in Tallahassee on Jan. 10.

SPORT S Page C2 | The News Herald | Thursday, February 12, 2015 St. Andrew Sound, also known as Crooked Island, is going to be the subject of conversation in the coming years. For a long time it was an out-of-theway body of water that most fishermen passed by on U.S. 98 on their way to St. Joe Bay to fish. Gradually flounder giggers, trout fishermen, pompano fishermen and tarpon fishermen passed the word of how many fish were being caught in the sound. Located between Mexico Beach and the east end of St. Andrew Bay, it was actually connected to the Gulf some years back, but soon filled in when a new pass was built at St. Andrews State Park. Until then, the “Old Pass” as it was called, was the only way to reach the Gulf from St. Andrew Bay. That was before Tyndall Air Force Base was established in the 1940s. Tyndall took over all of the property from Mexico Beach westward to St. Andrew Bay and part of Shell Island. It confiscated land from families that had homesteaded in this area, but the upside was it protected the land on both sides of the bay from condos and high-rises. I suppose there is some good with all bad, and some bad with all good. Tyndall has been an Air Force Base longer than most of us can remember. It protects the Southeastern portion of the United States from any threat to the south. So why are we having a conversation about Tyndall Air Force Base? According to some, we may be losing our privileges to hunt and fish on this property. I don’t have to tell you the world is aflame in the Middle East and that some people believe the fire is headed this way. Tyndall AFB is trying to get ahead of this threat by closing, or trying to close sensitive areas of the base. The problem is the areas identified as sensitive are the same ones you and I enjoy every weekend during the summer. There already are areas on the base that can and are closed during certain times of the week and Crooked Island is one of them. Tyndall teaches young pilots how to defend against intruders. In some cases drones are chased down by fighter jets and some are shot down into the Gulf. When Tyndall performs one of these exercises the entire western portion of Crooked Island Sound is closed to the public. No one wants one of these drones to fall on their boat or camp. After the exercise is completed the patrol boats leave and everything goes back to normal. If a proposed new closure is approved things will not go back to normal. This new closure would affect all the water around Tyndall out to a certain area. This area would effectively close Crooked Island Sound to fishing or any other water activity. The area that is proposed to be closed is not Tyndall’s property. This waterway belongs to the state and thus is public property. The land surrounding the water is federal property, but not the water. I think everyone knows how important the base is to Bay County and no one wants harm to come to any personnel or machinery on the base. However, making fishermen leave the water around this base will not make it any safer. As a matter of fact, local citizens are the best eyes and ears the base can have. If I see something I think is going wrong the first thing I’m going to do is call the base and alert someone. Working with the public is Tyndall’s best option, in my opinion, instead of treating the public like some kind of enemy. Right now it’s just mostly a lot of talk, but I can see a time when this area is closed to public use. I hope we can work with the military and not let Crooked Island Sound become a political football.

CHICAGO (AP) — Little League International has stripped Jackie Robinson West of the national title that the Chicago team won last sum mer after an investigation revealed it had falsified boundaries to field ineligible players. In a stunning announcement that came months after the all-black team, whose ages ranged from 11 to 13 years, captured the attention of the country and the hearts of its hometown, the baseball organiza tion said it also found that after the league had changed the boundar ies, some team officials went to sur rounding leagues to convince them to go along with what they’d done. “This is a heartbreaking deci sion,” Stephen D. Keener, the Little League International president and CEO, said in a statement. “As painful as it is, we feel it is a necessary decision to maintain the integrity of the Little League program. No team can be allowed to attempt to strengthen its team by putting players on their roster that live outside their boundaries.” The team has been suspended from Little League tournament privileges until new leadership is found. The team’s manager, Dar old Butler, is also suspended, and an administrator from the district that includes Jackie Robinson West has been removed from his position, according to the statement. The march of the team riveted the city, all the way to its loss in the world championship game to South Korea, and when it was over, thousands of people lined Chicago’s streets to catch a glimpse of the boys as they were paraded by bus from their South Side baseball field to a downtown park. There were countless heartwarm ing stories about the team, includ ing an effort by major league players to contribute money so the parents in the blue collar community could attend the World Series in Williams port, Pennsylvania, and another about Cubs players huddled around a televi sion watching the team during a rain delay at Wrigley Field. In October, the organization launched an investigation when a coach from a nearby suburb alleged that Jackie Robinson West had vio lated rules by poaching top suburban players. The story, which was first reported by, appeared to end in December when the national organization said it had uncovered no violations. But the organization said it would reopen the investigation if new information surfaced. About that same time, the organization learned of questions about boundary maps involving multiple leagues, and the investigation resumed. Chicago’s LLWS team stripped of title The night before he died, fans attending UNLV’s game against Fresno State draped towels over the statue of Tarkanian outside the cam pus arena. Tarkanian is depicted in the statue chewing on a towel while sitting in a courtside chair urging his team on. Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid, a longtime family friend, said Tarkanian’s legacy was far more widespread than just in Las Vegas, where he made UNLV a national power and was a bigger star than anyone playing on the Las Vegas Strip. “Jerry’s mark on American ath letics is significant not only because of his coaching ability, but also his fearlessness in taking on the brutal NCAA,” Reid said. “They controlled, bullied and tried to embarrass him, but he never stopped fighting until they cried uncle.” Tarkanian’s wife, Lois, said her husband fought health problems for the last six years with the same “courage and tenacity” he showed throughout his life. His death came just days after the death of another Hall of Fame coach, North Carolina’s Dean Smith. “Our hearts are broken but filled with incredible memories,” Lois Tar kanian said in a family statement. “You will be missed Tark.” Tarkanian was an innovator who preached defense yet loved to watch his teams run. And run they did, beginning with his first Final Four team in 1976-77, which scored more than 100 points in 23 games in an era before both the shot clock and the 3-point shot. He was a winner in a city built on losers, putting a small commuter school on the national sporting map and making UNLV sweatshirts a hot item around the country. His teams helped revolutionize the way the col lege game was played, with relent less defense forcing turnovers that were quickly converted into baskets at the other end. He recruited players other coaches often wouldn’t touch, building teams with junior college transfers and kids from checkered backgrounds. His teams at UNLV were national powerhouses almost every year, yet Tarkanian never seemed to get his due when the dis cussion turned to the all-time coach ing greats. That changed in 2013 when Tar kanian was elected to the Naismith Memorial Hall of Fame, an honor his fellow coaches argued for years was long overdue. Though hospitalized in the summer for heart problems and weakened by a variety of ills, he went on stage with a walker at the induction ceremony. “I knew right from day one I wanted to be a coach,” Tarkanian said. “Coaching has been my entire life.” The Bucs were not at full strength in the loss, as they were missing starting center Mitchell Moss and top reserve Hamid Smith. Both were in the lineup in the rematch and will be available tonight, which Wil liams said boosts confidence that NBH can prevail. “We’ve broken down their film and believe we know what they’re going to do,” Williams said. “The boys are confident and eager to prove a lot of peo ple wrong.” Rutherford (23-3) hasn’t encountered such doubts in recent years, having just won its fifth straight district cham pionship and advanced to the regional round for the sixth con secutive year. In that time span, the Rams have won 10 regional play off games and made it to two Final Fours, but the road back to Lakeland starts with a large obstacle in Suwannee (19-6). The Bulldogs finished 4-0 in District 2 before being upset by Rickards 58-47 in the district championship game. Despite that loss, Suwannee poses a matchup problem for the undersized Rams in 6-foot-9 starting center Kevarrius Hayes, who has signed to play for the Florida Gators next season. Hayes is averaging 19.7 points, 11.8 rebounds, and 3.6 blocks for the Bulldogs. A perimeter counterpoint is 5-foot-11 sophomore guard Jamari Wheeler with 18.4 points and 7.1 assists per game. “They’ve got a very good team,” Rutherford coach Rhondie Ross said. “The Hayes kid is a tremendous athlete. At that size, he can run the floor like a two-guard and has the agility of a perimeter player. “Wheeler is a very explosive athlete with a lot of speed in the open court. He’s really good at attacking the basket and mak ing plays for other people, and outside of those two they’ve got some good role players as well.” Seniors Gabe Steele, Destin Dunton and Josh Wade help the Rams deal with dynamic perim eter threats, but the presence of Hayes is a bigger issue. The Rams’ tallest player is 6-6 Max Moore, a baseball player who is completing his first year of varsity basketball. No other Rutherford player exceeds 6-4. “Some of the teams that (Suwannee) lost to had size to combat the Hayes kid, but we really don’t have that type of player,” Ross said. “We defi nitely have to keep them off the offensive boards and find a way to limit their transition points.” Another challenge the Rams face will be penetrating an aggressive Suwannee zone that features Hayes at the back to prevent any easy looks inside. It’s a concept that Ross compared to heralded Syra cuse teams. Suwannee wants to extend the zone to harass opposing guards away from the basket, while Hayes camps in the lane to erase any mistakes. “It’s going to be tough get ting shots in the paint because (Hayes) literally does not leave the painted area in their zone,” Ross said. “When you’ve got a rim protector like that it’s tough, so you have to move the ball quickly to try to make the zone move and find a way to get good ball movement and penetration to where the defense can’t catch up to the ball.” Steele, Wade and Dunton combined for 45 of the team’s 64 points in the district title game win over Arnold. More than pro duction, Ross said he needs his seniors to set the tone for Ruth erford’s younger players. “They need to continue to lead us the way that they have been,” Ross said. “This post season, they’ve been the guys scoring all the points for us, with Marquis Steele chipping in here and there with some offense. “But those guys need to con tinue to lead for us because, for some of these young guys, it’s their first rodeo with the post season and sometimes they don’t know what to expect.” Both games tip off at 7 p.m., with the regional semifinals tak ing place Tuesday. With a win, Rutherford would play the win ner of Arnold vs. Rickards, while NBH would play the winner of Maclay vs. Pensacola Christian.

Dejuan Marrero led the Indians with 16 points, with Ty Baker adding 14 and Junior Saintel 13. Quavius Copeland had 13 points to lead Gulf Coast, with Davaris McGowens adding 10 and Jonathan Wade, DeMario Beck, and Anton Waters all scoring eight each. It was a loss that the Commodores could ill afford to take in the midst of a tight race with Pen sacola for a state tourna ment berth, but one that Gulf Coast coach Jay Pow ell said was earned by lack of effort and execution. “I thought Chipola beat us to the 50-50 balls and I felt like it was because we were pressing a little bit,” Powell said. “We missed probably 20 shots within five feet of the basket and you’re not going to win if you don’t make the easy ones. “Our guard play was not as assertive as it had been and our post play on the boards was not near as assertive and tough as it had been. Even though Chipola’s record is not that great, you’re talking about a team with the talent to be preseason No. 1 in the nation and you’re not going to beat them without great effort on the boards.” The Commodores led 3029 at halftime and went up 38-35 after a short jumper by Beck early in the second half. The Indians answered with a 9-0 spurt featuring a pair of jumpers by Marrero and transition buckets by Saintel and Baker to go up 44-38 with 11:08 left. A three-point play by McGowens broke up the run for GC, but Baker answered with a step-back 3-pointer on the ensuing possession to make it 47-41. Chipola led by eight after a basket by Marrero with 6:45 to play, with a baseline drive by McGowens and a floater in the lane by Copeland help ing GC cut the deficit to 52-47 with 4:21 showing. Baker answered with a big jumper from the left wing to put the Indians back up seven, and Gulf Coast wasn’t able to get closer than six the rest of the way. The Commodores struggled mightily on the offensive end in the sec ond half against a sagging Chipola defense, managing just 13 points over the final 16 minutes and going with out a field goal for the final four. After a pair of free throws by Waters cut it to 55-49 with 3:38 left, the Indi ans were able to run nearly a minute off the clock thanks to a pair of offensive rebounds on their next pos session resulting in a free throw by Saintel. Gulf Coast muffed another chance to get closer when Wade missed a pointblank shot that could’ve cut it to five with 1:35 left, but still had an opportunity to make it a one-possession game in the final minute. Waters hit two more free throws with 30.3 seconds to play and it was 57-51, with a quick Chipola turnover giving the ball back to the Commodores. Copeland got free from the right wing for a clean look at a three, but the shot rimmed off and Baker split a pair of free throws with 23 seconds left to make it 58-51. Gulf Coast will be back in action Saturday at Tal lahassee, while Chipola will plays Tuesday at home against Tallahassee. Powell said that there was no special message delivered to his players after the game, except to be ready to put the loss behind them and get focused for TCC. “I think we come in to practice tomorrow and put our work boots on and fig ure out how to get a win against Tallahassee on the road Saturday night,” he said. “I know that will be tough because it’s (TCC coach) Eddie Barnes’ last home game and they’re doing a big ceremony for him right before the game. “But I challenged Anton Waters, Jon Wade and Cobe Goosby to step up and be great leaders over the next couple of days to make sure we get our edge back.” CHIPOLA (59) Robertin 2 1-2 5, King 2 0-0 4, Baker 5 24 14, Ngouama 1 2-4 4, Saintel 5 3-7 13, Preito 1 0-0 3, Marrero 6 4-6 16.

Hopeful of having injuries behind him, Woods made a horrific start to the new year. He shot a career-high 82 in the second round of the Phoenix Open to miss the cut by 12 shots. And then he withdrew after 11 holes of ordinary golf at Torrey Pines because of tightness in his back from a fog delay. Woods said on his website the last two weeks have been disap pointing, especially at Torrey Pines, where he is an eight-time winner. He said he never wants to withdraw, but recent injuries have allowed that to happen too often. Woods said his latest injury was not related to the back surgery he had last spring, and that he is feel ing better every day with physical therapy. “Right now, I need a lot of work on my game, and to still spend time with the people that are important to me,” Woods said. “My play, and scores, are not acceptable for tour nament golf. Like I’ve said, I enter a tournament to compete at the highest level, and when I think I’m ready, I’ll be back.” Woods is not playing Pebble Beach or Riviera, and said he would practice next week at his home and at The Medalist “getting ready for the rest of the year.” He said he wants to play the Honda Classic, which starts Feb. 26, but he won’t be there unless his game is tournament ready. “That’s not fair to anyone,” Woods said. “I do, however, expect to be playing again very soon.” Ernie Els, who has known Woods longer than any other active PGA Tour player, heard about his woes while playing in Dubai and later saw highlights. “As competitive as we are, we don’t want to see anyone suffer like that,” said Els, who has fin ished second to Woods more than any other player. “We’ve got to do our stuff in public. I don’t care if you’re Tiger Woods, Ernie Els or whoever. If you have some error in your game, you get exposed.” Woods, the winner of 79 PGA Tour events and 14 majors, has never looked this bad on the golf course. He had back surgery to relieve a pinched nerve a week before the Masters and missed three months (including the first two majors), and then he took four months off at the end of last year to regain strength and get his back fully healed. He also hired a new swing consultant and embarked on the fifth swing change of his career. His chipping was shockingly bad at the 18-man Hero World Chal lenge at Isleworth in December, when he tied for last. His chipping looked even worse at the Phoenix Open, a collection of shots that he either flubbed short or bladed across the green. Woods is at No. 62 in the world, his worst ranking since before he won his first PGA Tour event in 1996. He is not eligible for the World Golf Championship at Doral. “I am committed to getting back to the pinnacle of my game,” Wood said. Woods: Will return when game is ready RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — Malcolm Brogdon scored 15 points and Mike Tobey had a couple of key second-half plays to help No. 2 Virginia hold off North Carolina State 51-47 on Wednesday night. Tobey scored nine of his 11 after halftime for the Cavaliers (22-1, 10-1 Atlan tic Coast Conference), who survived their first test with out injured starter Justin Anderson. Tobey also came down with a critical rebound and hit two free throws with 7 seconds left to make it a two-possession game, then Brogdon hit two more with 1.4 seconds left to seal this grind-it-out win. Virginia shot 37 percent, but relied on its defense. N.C. State (14-11, 5-7) shot just 33 percent for the game and 3 for 17 from 3-point range. No. 9 Louisville 69, Pittsburgh 56 LOUISVILLE, Ky . — Montrezl Harrell had 28 points and 12 rebounds, and helped spur a 22-2 second half run that helped No. 9 Louisville beat Pittsburgh. Strong shooting positioned the Panthers to take control with a 45-39 lead before the Cardinals (20-4, 8-3 Atlantic Coast Confer ence) answered with an energetic 14-1 run including several baskets set up by their trademark pressure defense. No. 21 West Virginia 76, Kansas State 72 MORGANTOWN, W.Va. — Reserve Brandon Watkins scored a career-high 14 points and No. 21 West Virginia surrendered a double-digit lead before recover ing for a win over Kansas State. West Virginia (19-5, 7-4 Big 12) got plenty of scoring from its deep bench to snap a two-game losing streak and hand the Wildcats their fifth straight loss. No. 23 Ohio State 75, Penn State 55 COLUMBUS, Ohio — Sam Thompson scored a career-high 22 points and D’Angelo Russell flirted with his second straight triple-dou ble to lead No. 23 Ohio State past Penn State. Russell, the nation’s top freshman scorer, added 17 points, six rebounds and seven assists for Ohio State (19-6, 8-4 Big Ten), which has won five of six. Wake Forest 72, Miami 70 WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. — Dinos Mitoglou scored 21 points and Wake Forest held on to beat Miami. Darius Leonard added 14 points and Devin Thomas had 13 for the Demon Deacons (12-13, 48 Atlantic Coast Conference). They made a season-high 12 3-pointers and shot 46.4 percent while winning their third in four games. Davon Reed scored 17 points while Angel Rodriguez had all 15 of his in the second half for the Hurricanes (15-9, 5-6). Rodri guez’s layup attempt at the buzzer rimmed out. COLLEGE BASKETBALL ROUNDUP No. 2 Virginia outlasts N.C. State 51-47 Gulf Coast overcame a 29-26 half time deficit that Chipola built into an eight-pound lead early in the second half to tie the score with about 10 min utes left. The Indians exerted their strength from that point, but didn’t fully break away until the finish. The Lady Commodores got off to a fast start, going up 13-4 thanks to 11 combined points between Alvarado and Gibson. They again led by nine at 16-7 after a 3-pointer from Alvarado. Chipola got back into it by tight ening its defense and pounding the ball inside to All-American cen ter Akhator, who continually hurt Gulf Coast on the interior en route to 12 first-half points. Back-to-back buckets by Akhator cut the deficit to 18-17, but Vasquez and Alvarado hit consecutive threes to put Gulf Coast back up seven with 6:57 to half. The Lady Indians answered with a 12-0 run to surge back in front, with a 3-pointer by Key, a bucket inside by Akhator, a left-handed layup by Gilmore, a three-point play by Akha tor and another basket by Kendra Martin making it 29-24 Chipola. A basket by Kristina King in the closing seconds of the half cut the margin back to three at the break, but the Lady Commodores were never able to wrestle the lead back in the second half. A three-point play by Akhator and a transition layup by Gilmore to start the second half put Chipola up 34-26. The Lady Commodores didn’t go away. A three by Alvarado and an offen sive rebound and putback by Gibson cut the margin to 38-33, with another three by Vasquez and a long jumper by Alvarado tying the game 42-42 with 10:42 remaining. Gilmore put Chipola back up for good with a strong driving finish to make it 46-44, with Key scoring on a cut to the basket and then a 3-pointer from the left corner to make it 51-45 with 6:14 remaining. Akhator scored inside off glass a minute later to put the Lady Indians up eight, but Gulf Coast made one last push, with a steal and layup by Alvarado and a basket by Gibson cut ting it to 53-49 with 2:44 left. It was 55-51 with 1:33 remaining, but Akhator made a free throw, Gib son missed the front end of a 1-and-1, and Key made two free throws and it was 58-51 with 1:02 to play. The last gasp for Gulf Coast came on an air-ball 3-point attempt by Alvarado on its ensuing possession, with Gilmore and Key combined to make three free throws to cement the outcome. It didn’t come nearly as easy as so many of the Lady Indians’ victories this season, but that was precisely why Chipola coach Greg Franklin said he was so pleased with the outcome. “In the last five or 10 minutes they really gutted it out,” he said of his play ers. “You’re on someone else’s court and not playing particularly well, but we still found a way to win and they’re to be commended for that. “It says a lot about your team and how you compete when you do that.” Gulf Coast will play at Tallahassee on Saturday, while Chipola is back in action Tuesday at home against Tallahassee.

STAT SHEET Page C4 | The News Herald | Thursday, February 12, 2015 Prep: Bay softball suffers first defeat GULF BREEZE — Jelly Mathes was 2 for 3 and Allyssa Powell 1 for 3 but it wasn’t enough for Bay to avoid its first loss of the season in high school softball on Wednesday. The Tornadoes fell 5-0 to Gulf Breeze, with Amber Loving taking the loss. The Tornadoes, 2-1, play at Rutherford at 6 p.m. Friday. LA TE RE S ULT S S oftball Wewahitchka 17, Graceville 6 WEW A HITCHK A — Wewahitchka won its district opener behind pitcher Ashleigh Price. Shamario Cole was 4 for 5 with two home runs, five runs batted in and four runs scored. Tara Walding had two hits and scored four runs, Cecily Hale was 2 for 5 with two RBIs and Mariah Brown was 1 for 2 with two runs scored. The Gators will host Vernon at 7 tonight. Baseball Marianna 7, Liberty County 5 BRI S TOL — Marianna tied the game with five runs in the top of the seventh inning and won it with two in the eighth. Liberty County’s Alex Gonzalez went six shutout innings, allowing three hits, but two relievers couldn’t hold a five-run lead. Brody Holland had three hits and an RBI for the hosts and William Hayes a double and two RBIs. Karl to coach Kings after All-Star break The Sacramento Kings and George Karl have agreed to the framework of a deal for him to take over as coach, a person familiar with the negotiations said Wednesday. The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the discussions were private. The plan is for Karl to coach the Kings in their first game following the All-Star break Feb. 20 at home against Boston, meaning Tyrone Corbin will be coaching his final game for Sacramento on Wednesday night at Milwaukee. Karl is attending funeral services for former North Carolina coach Dean Smith this week. The Kings are expected to announce the deal in the coming days after final terms have been agreed upon and the contract has been signed. Karl will be Sacramento’s third coach this season. The Kings (18-33) made the surprising move to fire Michael Malone in December after an 11-13 start in his second season as coach, even though they had shown progress until All-Star center DeMarcus Cousins was sidelined for an extended period with viral meningitis.
