JOE — An as-of-yet-unnamed suspect died Wednesday night while in custody of the Port St. Joe Police Department. Law enforcement agencies have released little information so far. The police department arrested a local man Wednesday and took him to the station. At 7:39 p.m. EST, the man died while in custody. The Port St. Joe Police Department has asked the Florida Department of Law Enforcement (FDLE) to investigate the death. FDLE confirmed it is investigating an officer involved in a shooting but would not release further information Thursday. The police department has released no details about how the suspect came into custody or circumstances of the death. Officers were not answering phone calls to the department as of Thursday afternoon. The investigation is continuing. T eacher suspended over profane letter to Arnold students By COLLIN BREAUX 747-5081 | @PC N HCollinB PANAMA C I TY BEACH — An Arnold High School English teacher was suspended for four days Thursday after he sent a profanity-filled letter to students, Bay District Superintendent Bill Husfelt confirmed. The letter was posted in the class by teacher Erik Cobb, a 17-year veteran of the district and a teacher at Arnold since 2001. Husfelt said Cobb posted or taped the note to his desk. In the letter telling students not to put gum under tables, Cobb used profanity and insults several times. ERIK COBB SEE TEACHER | A3 By JOHN HENDERSON 522-5108 | @PC N Hjohn PANAMA C I TY BEACH — A third Calypso tower building will be built on the north side of Front Beach Road after the City Council on Thursday upheld the Planning Board’s decision to allow construction to move forward. The Panama City Beach Council, in a 4-1 vote with Councilwoman Josie Strange dissenting, denied an appeal from some tower residents of a Planning Board decision Dec. 8 to uphold staff’s decision to allow the development order to be issued for the 22-story, 250-unit building to proceed. Several residents who live in Calypso Tower I and Calypso Tower II told the council they were concerned Calypso III at 15928 Front Beach Road would generate too much traffic on and off the beach. They also said a third tower would make the parking situation worse. Several asked for updated traffic studies, saying it is almost impossible to pull out of the towers onto Front Beach Road now during the busy season. “I’m concerned about what is happening in Panama City Beach,” said Dave Evras. “You have developers that come in and build properties and they are gone in a matter of a couple of years or less, and they don’t care what happens after the fact. I’m pleading with you to look into the situation and help us.” The third tower would be on the north side of the busy road. The other two are on the south side. The Calypso Resort & Towers are just east of Pier Park on Front Beach Road. The third tower was approved Feb. 7, 2003, as part of the overall project. However, the tower was never built and its building permit expired Sept. 24, 2005. The project was bought back to life June 27, 2013, when the council approved of an ordinance to allow some development orders to be extended. Calypso Tower III fell in that category because it was part of a phased development. If the tower were built today on the north side of the road, it would be limited to 15 stories. But because it was part of a previous phased development, it is allowed to be at 22 stories, the same height as those on the south side of the road.

Pig excels in dog agility class One student in a suburban Seattle dog agility class is drawing a lot of attention, and not just for her athletic skills. Amy is a pig. Amid the barking of corgis, collies and Labradors, visitors will sometimes hear a snort. And there’s Amy, jumping through the hoop, balancing on the teeter-totter, retrieving the dumbbell and zipping through the play tunnel. Lori Stock owns 5-month-old Amy and said her indoor pig is a quick learner and very motivated by food rewards. KOMO reported that Amy already has graduated from puppy manners class and has moved on to agility and obedience at the Family Dog Training Center in Kent. Training center president Kathy Lang said that’s a first, although she recalls a pygmy goat did attend several training classes. PHILADELPHIA Mayor signs sick leave bill into law on third try Philadelphia has a new law guaranteeing paid sick leave to thousands of workers who have never had it. The bill signed Thursday by Democratic Mayor Michael Nutter provides an hour of paid sick leave for every 40 hours of work. It applies to businesses with at least 10 employees. Nutter said it will let workers take time off to recuperate, address family matters or seek preventive care. Democratic Councilman William Greenlee said 200,000 Philadelphia residents don’t have paid sick leave. That’s 40 percent of the workforce in one of the biggest U.S. cities. Advocates said it includes restaurant workers along with single mothers, college students and people starting out in the workforce. Nutter had twice before rejected similar bills. He said he was concerned about the economy at the time. The law takes effect in 90 days. MOBILE, Ala. County’s refusal to wed gays goes to court A federal judge in Alabama should make it “crystal clear” that gay marriages should be allowed across the state, an attorney for same-sex couples said Thursday. U.S. District Judge Callie Granade held the hearing amid confusion in Alabama, as many probate judges there refused to issue the marriage licenses after state Chief Justice Roy Moore said they didn’t have to. Moore gave his order even though Granade overturned the state’s ban last month and the U.S. Supreme Court refused to stop gay marriages from beginning Monday. At least 22 of Alabama’s 67 counties are issuing marriage licenses to gay couples. Granade said she would rule soon on the request from gay couples who want her to force the Mobile County probate judge to issue a marriage license. Granade did not indicate exactly when she would rule. One of the couples seeking to be married in Mobile, James Strawser and John Humphrey, said they were optimistic they would get a ruling in their favor within days. WASHINGTON (AP) — Republi cans said Thursday that President Barack Obama’s request to autho rize the use of force against the Islamic State group is too weak to do the job, and the House’s Demo cratic leader said the White House is facing a stern challenge. “It’s going to be hard,” said Rep. Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., leader of a party that generally opposes the use of U.S. ground forces. Republicans were troubled for far different reasons. House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, said Obama’s proposal “ties his hands even further” than current law. The president’s draft legislation would bar “enduring offensive combat operations” and repeal a 2002 authorization that preceded the U.S. invasion of Iraq while leaving in force the authori zation that was approved by Con gress after the Sept. 11, 2001, terror attacks. Boehner said the House will hold hearings, and any legislation will authorize sufficient military force to “fight the war wherever it is.” The comments by Boehner, Pelosi and others epitomize the skeptical response from Capitol Hill as the White House searched for its first outright supporter for the measure. Rep. Ed Royce, R-Calif., chair man of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, said Obama still “needs to make the case to the American people” and Congress. “This won’t be easy,” he said. Referring to U.S. participation in airstrikes against Islamic State fighters in Iraq and Syria, he said the “campaign isn’t pummeling the enemy as it should.” “Congressional authority is of no value if the president isn’t will ing to act decisively,” Royce said. In the president’s own party, a new day brought new skepticism. “We must make it clear that there is no authorization for the use of combat ground troops,” said Sen. Ben Cardin, D-Md. Rep. Eliot Engel of New York, the top Democrat on the House Foreign Affairs panel, said coalition military operations were mak ing good progress. He noted that Jordan has “doubled down on its commitment in the aftermath of the horrific murder” of a Jorda nian pilot who was burned alive. “But we’re not out of the woods; far from it,” Engel said. Freshman Rep. Seth Moulton, D-Mass., a Marine veteran who served four tours in Iraq, said he was not ready to support Obama’s request until the administration presents a comprehensive strat egy to ensure long-term success. Obama war power plan has little support WASHINGTON (AP) — The Senate on Thursday confirmed President Barack Obama’s choice to run the Pentagon, handing Ash Carter the unenvi able task of steering the military as the United States confronts Islamic State militants, conflict in Ukraine and other worldwide threats. The overwhelming bipar tisan vote in the Republicancontrolled Senate was 93-5. Carter will replace Chuck Hagel, the former Republican senator who had a rough relationship with Obama’s insular group of national security advisers. Carter will be Obama’s fourth defense secretary in six years, joining a line of succession that began with Robert Gates and included Leon Panetta and Hagel. In a statement, Obama welcomed the bipartisan vote and Carter’s return to the pres ident’s national security team. One of Carter’s first tasks will be helping to win support for Obama’s call to Congress for new authority to use force against the IS extremists. Republicans and Democrats have reacted negatively to Obama’s draft proposal, criti cizing both its limitations and vagueness. In endorsing the 60-year-old Carter, Republicans expressed little hope that he would have better success in jelling with Obama’s inner circle than Hagel did. The former Repub lican senator and Vietnam War veteran often was the outsider and he announced in November he was stepping down. The president’s relationship with the Pentagon often has been strained. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., who backed Carter, said he “needs to have the courage to speak truth to power — to Congress, yes, but also to his commander in chief.” Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., chairman of the Armed Ser vices Committee, alluded to the divide between the White House and Pentagon, saying he had “sincere hope and, sadly, little confidence that the president who nominated Dr. Carter will empower him to lead and con tribute to the fullest extent of his abilities.” While moving ahead on Carter, Senate Republicans delayed a committee vote on Loretta Lynch, Obama’s nomi nee for attorney general. Law makers said they had more questions for Lynch, the U.S. attorney for the eastern district of New York who would become the nation’s first black female attorney general if confirmed. Democrats complained that Lynch is being held to a double standard compared to other nominees and said her nomination should be approved immediately. Her confirmation is expected after Congress’ oneweek recess.

Husfelt said Cobb’s suspension without pay started Thursday. Cobb understood any repeat of such actions could result in a recommendation of termination to the School Board, said Husfelt, who added Cobb did not dispute the facts of the incident and was “very remorseful.” Husfelt said he learned about the letter when a parent contacted him. Arnold Principal Keith Bland had no comment Thursday and directed questions to district officials. An email sent Wednesday to an account listed for Cobb at Arnold seeking comment did not receive a response. An attempt to reach Cobb through the Association of Bay County Educators was not successful Thursday. Husfelt said principals don’t have the authority to suspend a teacher, and superintendents cannot suspend teachers without pay unless the teacher agrees. Cobb has been in trouble previously. According to his personnel file, Husfelt said in a January 2011 letter there were concerns about his use of language in the classroom and inappropriate comments. Cobb admitted to then-Executive Director of Human Resources Tommye Richardson that he “might have slipped” with his language, according to Husfelt’s letter. In a March 2009 letter, thenArnold Principal John Haley formally reprimanded Cobb for “inappropriate actions.” Haley said in the letter that Cobb called students in his English class “stupid and irresponsible.” “Although you were frustrated and disappointed in their work ethic, you should never expose your students to disparaging or belittling remarks,” Haley said. Violation Cobb’s actions were a violation of State Board of Education Rule 6B-1.006, in which individuals should make efforts to protect students from conditions harmful to learning and to their health and safety, and also not expose a student to unnecessary embarrassment or disparagement, Haley’s reprimand said. A second letter from then-Arnold Assistant Principal Lisa Churchwell said a parent reported that Cobb called her daughter stupid and irresponsible and that the daughter felt singled out. Churchwell said when she called Cobb to investigate the incident, Cobb told Churchwell the student was stupid and irresponsible. Cobb added he was tired of the student “putting on make-up and bragging about going to the Lil’ Wayne concert,” according to Churchwell’s letter. “Good, I’ll just go to work at Publix. I’m tired of this (expletive),” Cobb was quoted as saying when Churchwell told him he could lose his teaching certificate for the remarks. In Cobb’s written response to that incident, he said he entered his classroom to find his students “engaged in all manner of inappropriate behaviors.” A student was dragging another out of a chair by the neck and others were throwing plastic bottles, according to Cobb. “Three girls were sitting at their table with their cellphones out, putting make-up on. Needless to say, I was not impressed,” Cobb said. He said he realized his actions and comments were inappropriate, and that he made the comments because of his concern for his students. Cobb added that while teaching ninth grade regular English he “witnessed a side of the student body that, previously, I had only heard about through my colleagues.” Cobb said his colleague’s “horror stories” were proven true. “Unfortunately, possibly through no fault of their own, none of them really has any idea how to be a student,” Cobb wrote. Cobb said he wanted to expand young people’s minds and that his classroom became synonymous with thinking for oneself, but that the group he worked with in that fourth period had few of those qualities and had no desire to do homework or a clue how to conduct themselves courteously. His fellow teachers did not want to make negative comments to students, but agreed with him when students are out of earshot, Cobb said. At the time, he said he would not act in an inappropriate manner in front of students again. Husfelt suspended Cobb without pay from May 10 to 14, 2010, for leaving campus May 3 during a bomb threat at Arnold. In his letter, Husfelt said he considered Cobb’s action a willful neglect of duty and direct violation of School Board policy. Student reviews of Cobb on were complimentary. “The best teacher in the UNIVERSE!!!!!!!! He made my freshman year entertaining and stimulating. Thank you,” said one review from 2011. “An absolutely awesome teacher that not only has intensive knowledge of literature, but treats his students with respect. This guy actually cares about what happens to you after you finish his course,” said another review from 2007. CALYPSO TOWER from Page A1 Strange expressed concerns about the amount of time it took the city to give final approval to the developer’s application, but City Attorney Doug Sale said the developers followed the rules. The developers initially asked to build the tower within four years, which would have reduced the height of the building under the city’s ordinance, only to change their plans after the building was sold to new developers a year later. Two tower residents, Toni Traina and Mae Meyer, qualified as those who could appeal the Planning Board’s ruling. Meyer sent an email on Monday to city staff stating that she has withdrawn her appeal, but Traina showed up for the hearing. In a letter to the council Traina, who lives in Calypso Tower I, said Front Beach Road backs up for miles in the busy season because of Pier Park. She told the council that the third tower at its proposed height would cause serious traffic concerns and overcrowd the beach. “I believe I will be adversely affected from the traffic impact (of a third tower), not only the traffic impact, but the environ mental impact,” she said. “I believe by continuing to per mit large areas of cement without any future respon sibly to the environment. we’re going to have even more runoff.” Read teacher Erik Cobb’s letter at .

Freed om Medical Cl inic Page A4 | The News Herald | Friday, February 13, 2015 NATIO N & WORLD NEW YORK (AP) — Facebook is making it eas ier to plan for your online afterlife. The world’s biggest online social network said Thursday that it will now let users pick someone who can manage their account after they die. Previously, the accounts were “memo rialized” after death, or locked so that no one could log in. But Facebook says its users wanted more choice. Beginning in the U.S., Face book users can now pick a “legacy contact” to post on their page after they die, respond to new friend requests and update their profile picture and cover photo. Users can also have their accounts deleted after their death, which was not possible before. If you want someone to manage your account after you die, click on the upsidedown triangle on the top right corner of your page and find “security settings.” For U.S. users there will be an option to edit your leg acy contact, who must be a Facebook user. But you don’t have to pick some one else to manage your account. You can also check a box to permanently delete your account when you die. The person you choose to manage your account won’t be notified of your choice until your Facebook account is memorialized. But you can choose to send them a message right away. Accounts are memorial ized at the request of loved ones, who must provide proof of the person’s death, such as an obituary. Face book tries to ensure that the account of the dead user doesn’t show up as a “sug gested friend” or in other ways that could upset the person’s loved ones. Now somebody can manage your Facebook account after you die AP A Facebook employee walks past a sign at Facebook headquarters in Menlo Park, Calif. VERDIJ, Iran (AP) — Iran is breaking bad. Officials say methamphet amine production and abuse of hard drugs are skyrock eting in the country despite potentially lethal criminal penalties for users if they are caught. The increase is partly because Iran is the main gateway for the region’s top drug exporter, Afghani stan — and partly because Iranian dealers are profiting so handsomely. Ghazal Tolouian, a psy chologist who treats dozens of meth addicts at a therapy camp in a mountain vil lage northwest of Tehran, says most of her clients fall into two categories: stu dents “who want to pass university entrance exams successfully,” and “people who have to work a second and third shift to make ends meet and earn more money.” Anti-narcotics and medi cal officials say more than 2.2 million of Iran’s 80 million citizens already are addicted to illegal drugs, including 1.3 million on registered treat ment programs. They say the numbers keep rising annually, even though use of the death penalty against convicted smugglers has increased, too, and now accounts for more than nine of every 10 executions. Parviz Afshar, an anti-nar cotics official, said for every meth lab they detect, two more might spring up, often involving small-scale “cooks” operating in residences where production is particu larly hard to detect. He said police found and destroyed at least 416 meth labs in the 12-month period up to March, up from 350 in the previous 12-month period. Iran’s Health Ministry was slow to finance rehabili tation clinics nationwide, but a growing network of private camps has sprung up that partly receive state financing. Some of the camps are run by former or recovering users of the highly addictive drug, which was depicted in the popular U.S. television show “Breaking Bad.” “When I set up this shel ter, authorities didn’t support me. But after several years of hard work, they were convinced that it’s better to provide care and shelter to addicts,” said Majid Mirzaei, manager of a Tehran shelter for drug addicts and a former addict himself. His facility provides free food, syringes, condoms, medical care and a place to sleep to addicts in a crowded neighborhood in south Tehran. “Drug addiction is a fact. It can’t be eliminated but you can manage it correctly,” Mirzaei said as he changed a bandage on an addict’s wound. Officials say Iran’s taste for illegal narcotics is certain to expand into greater abuse of heroin, simply because Iran is the main route for exports from next-door Afghanistan, maker of three-fourths of the world supply.

Mortgage rates on the upswing WASHINGTON (AP) — Average longterm mortgage rates rose this week, yet remained near historically low levels. Mortgage company Freddie Mac said Thursday the nationwide average for a 30-year mortgage jumped to 3.69 percent from 3.59 percent last week. The average rate still is at its lowest level since May 2013. The rate for a 15-year loan, a popular choice for people who are refinancing, increased to 2.99 percent from 2.92 percent last week. A year ago, the average 30-year mortgage stood at 4.28 percent and the 15-year mortgage at 3.33 percent. Mortgage rates have remained low even though the Federal Reserve in October ended its monthly bond purchases, which were meant to hold down long-term rates. Government data released last Friday showed a resurgent job market in January, signaling the economy finally is regaining the kind of strength typical of a robust recovery. U.S. employers added 257,000 jobs last month, after 329,000 in December and a sizzling 423,000 jobs in November, the Labor Department reported. The November and December gains were much higher than the government had first estimated. The job gains could boost the housing market, which has been recovering in the past few years from the recession but has struggled to maintain momentum. To calculate average mortgage rates, Freddie Mac surveys lenders across the country at the beginning of each week. The average doesn’t include extra fees, known as points, which most borrowers must pay to get the lowest rates. One point equals 1 percent of the loan amount. The average fee for a 30-year mortgage was 0.6 point, down from 0.7 point last week. The fee for a 15-year mortgage was unchanged at 0.6 point. The average rate on a five-year adjustablerate mortgage jumped to 2.97 percent from 2.82 percent. Gas cuts hurt retail sales; spending up elsewhere WASHINGTON (AP) — U.S. retail sales fell sharply last month as gas prices plummeted and auto sales slowed. But excluding those volatile categories, Americans stepped up their spending a bit. Retail sales dropped 0.8 percent in January, the Commerce Department said Thursday, following a 0.9 percent decline in December. The dollar value of gas station sales plunged 9.3 percent, the largest drop in six years. Auto dealer sales also fell for the second straight month after big gains in the fall. Outside those categories, sales ticked up 0.2 percent after a flat reading in December. The modest gain suggests Americans remain cautious about spending their windfall from lower gas prices, which economists expect will save the typical family $750 this year. Cheaper gas and strong hiring have sent consumer confidence to seven-year highs, a sign spending should pick up soon. Economists were disappointed by the weak showing, but most expect consumers eventually will spend much of the cash left over from lower prices at the pump. “With lower gasoline prices leaving households with more to spend ... the labor market on fire and consumer confidence back at its pre-recession level, we had hoped to see a much stronger performance,” Paul Ashworth, an economist at Capital Economics, said. Ashworth said he now expects growth in the first three months of the year will be just 2.5 percent to 3 percent, below his earlier estimate of 3 percent or above. Still, “the conditions are in place for a period of very strong consumption growth,” he said. “We still expect to see that strength come through in the retail sales data soon.” The National Retail Federation, the nation’s largest retail industry group, expects retail sales to be up 4.1 percent this year. That would be an uptick from the 3.5 percent rise last year and mark the biggest percentage gain since 2011 when retail sales rose 5.1 percent. Jack Kleinhenz, the NRF’s chief economist, said heavy discounting will continue this year given the competitive environment and that, he believes, has made sales look less strong in January. Bustling West Coast ports fall quiet amid labor dispute AP Container ships wait at the dock to be unloaded at the Port of Oakland in Oakland, Calif., on Thursday. Companies that operate marine terminals didn’t call workers to unload ships Thursday that carry car parts, furniture, clothing and electronics. LOS ANGELES (AP) — Seaports in major West Coast cities that normally are abuzz with the sound of commerce have fallen unusually quiet. Companies that operate marine terminals didn’t call workers to unload ships Thursday that carry car parts, furniture, clothing, electronics — just about anything made in Asia and destined for U.S. consumers. Containers of U.S. exports won’t get loaded either. The partial lockout is the result of an increasingly damaging labor dispute between dockworkers and their employers. The two sides have been negotiating a new contract, and stalled talks have all but paralyzed 29 ports that handle about one-quarter of U.S. international trade — about $1 trillion worth of cargo annually. The 15 ships scheduled to arrive Thursday at the ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach, by far the nation’s largest complex, will join a line of about 20 others anchored off the coast, waiting for berths at the docks to clear. There are clusters of ships outside the ports of Oakland, and Seattle and Tacoma in Washington. The Southern California slots weren’t opening Thursday — a holiday for Lincoln’s Birthday. The ships occupying them were idle because companies that operate marine terminals did not call dockworkers to operate the towering cranes that hoist containers of cargo on and off ships. The berths won’t clear Saturday, Sunday or Monday either. On each of the days, dockworkers would get bonus pay for the weekend or Presidents Day holiday. Employers refuse to pay extra to longshoremen who have slowed production as a pressure tactic, said Steve Getzug, a spokesman for the Pacific Maritime Association, which is bargaining on behalf of terminal operators and shipping companies. Today is a normal workday and would see normal operations. Port Panama City expecting record year By VALERIE GARMAN 747-5076 | @valeriegarman PANAMA CITY — With 652,000 tons of goods moved through Port Panama City so far this fiscal year, port officials are expecting a recordbreaking 2015 if the trend continues. “I think it’s going to be a record year by a pretty good step, and it’s starting to show up on our statistics and our financials four months into the year,” Port Director Wayne Stubbs said during a board meeting Thursday, citing big numbers for steel plate and copper imports, and wood pellet exports. “We’re really starting to see some numbers we haven’t seen before.” If the growth continues, the port is on pace to break a tonnage record set in 2006, when the facility handled 1.8 million tons of cargo. Last year, tonnage clocked in at 1.57 million tons after a slow year for copper, one of the port’s largest imports. In 2013, the facility handled 1.7 million tons of goods. “We were off by a bit last year and that shows up in the financial report, but that’s not going to be the case this year,” Stubbs said. “We’re going to be really, really up this year compared to the year before.” The discussion came on the heels of a clean 2014 audit report approved by board members. The audit outlined $97 million in assets for the port, a growth of $3 million from 2013. Although revenues were down about $700,000 for the year, the port garnered $1.2 million more in grant funding than it did the previous year. Overall, the additional grants pushed the facility’s net income up from $2.6 million in 2013 to $3.2 million. The port’s auditor also pointed out strong growth during the past decade, with operating revenues growing from $5.6 million in 2005 to $12.9 million last year. During Thursday’s meeting, the Port Authority also approved a pair of bids that will kick off improvement projects for the port’s rail system and west berth apron. For the west berth project, which will increase the berth’s weight capacity, the board approved a $1.57 million bid with low bidder Gulf Coast Utility Contractors. The second approved bid was a $53,650 contract with Alabama Railroad for improvements to the port’s main rail yard.

Obama signs veterans suicide prevention bill WASHINGTON (AP) — Acknowledging the struggles of the nation’s veterans, President Barack Obama on Thursday signed legislation intended to reduce the high rate of suicide that is claiming the lives of soldiers and former members of the military. “If you are hurting, know this. You are not forgotten,” Obama said. The law, which had broad support from Republicans and Democrats, requires the Pentagon and Veterans Affairs Department to submit to independent reviews of their suicide prevention programs and make information on suicide prevention more easily available to veterans. The law also offers financial incentives to psy chiatrists and other mental health professionals who agree to work for the VA and assist military members as they transition from active duty to veteran status. A 2013 VA study reported that veterans were committing suicide at a rate of 22 a day in 2010, with almost 70 per cent of them being 50 years old or older. The incidence of post-traumatic stress among soldiers returning from Iraq and Afghanistan also has attracted widespread attention. “Too many of our troops and veterans are still struggling,” Obama said. “For many of them, the war goes on in the flashbacks that come rushing forward, and the nightmares that don’t go away.” The bill carries the name of Clay Hunt, a 26-year-old Marine veteran who battled post-traumatic stress disorder after serving in Iraq and Afghanistan. Hunt killed himself in 2011 in Texas. Mother pleads guilty to killing 6 newborns PROVO, Utah (AP) — A Utah mother accused of killing six of her newborn babies and storing their bodies in her garage pleaded guilty to murder Thursday. Megan Huntsman, 39, faces up to life in prison on the charges. She will be sentenced April 20. She pleaded guilty to six counts of murder while standing next to her attorney in court. Her voice broke as she said “guilty” in answer to each count. Prosecutors have called it a unique case in both its heinousness and in the number of victims. Utah County Attorney Jeff Buhman said he will recommend the sentences run concurrently, which could reduce her minimum possible sentence to five years, but Buhman said she likely will spend the rest of her life in prison. He said the plea gives Huntsman fewer options for appeal than a trial, bringing closure to the family more quickly. “It hopefully will mean this case is essentially done,” he said. The deaths sent shockwaves through the quiet, mostly Mormon community where Huntsman stored the tiny bodies for more than a decade. Her estranged husband made the grim discovery in April 2014 while he cleaned out a garage in the home they had shared in Pleasant Grove, Utah, a city of about 35,000 people, south of Salt Lake City. Authorities said a seventh baby found in her garage was stillborn. Huntsman told police she either strangled or suffocated the babies immediately after they were born. She wrapped their bodies in a towel or a shirt, put them in plastic bags and then packed them inside boxes in the garage. Puerto Rico, North Carolina, Texas tickets win Powerball SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico (AP) — Somebody who stopped by a Shell station in southern Puerto Rico was potentially $100 million richer Thursday, winning a share of a $564.1 million Powerball jackpot — the first winner outside the continental United States. The winner, who will share the jackpot with people in North Carolina and Texas, has not come forward, but several Puerto Ricans who bought tickets at the station in the coastal city of Ponce have stopped by to ask about who won, said employee Yomaris Rentas. She had just started her shift at the 24-hour station early Thursday when the lottery machine began printing a message alerting her that a winning ticket had been sold there. “I couldn’t believe it!” she said with a laugh. “We’re celebrating.” The winner can claim the prize starting today, choosing between a lump sum payment of $101.6 million or 30 payments over 29 years, said Antonio Perez Lopez, assistant secretary of the Puerto Rico Lottery. “We are beyond thrilled with the news that we already have a multimilliondollar winner just four months after Puerto Rico began selling Powerball tickets,” he said. Neither of the other two winners has been identified either. The Texas Lottery posted on Twitter that one of the winning tickets was sold at Appletree Food Mart in Princeton, Texas. There was no immediate information on the city or store that produced the winner in North Carolina. Wednesday’s jackpot was the thirdlargest in Powerball history and the fifth-largest U.S. lottery prize. The last time a Powerball jackpot climbed so high was May 2013, when a Florida ticket won a $590.5 million prize.

The previous operator of the course has offered to run it again if Bay County gives him a one-time payment of $150,000 for losses he says he sustained after he moved out when county officials tried to evict him. The current operator, Holiday Golf, also has offered to keep the course open through the end of March at no cost to the county. Tony Ray, the former Bay Dunes operator, has said he lost business during the busy time of the year for the course as the county started the eviction process and he voluntarily left. He also said he had costs involved in moving equipment. County Commission Chairman Guy Tunnell said he would not vote to support the county paying Ray $150,000 to operate the course again. “I’d love to keep it open for a number of reasons, but I don’t think he’s the one to be doing it for a number of reasons,” Tunnell said. But Tunnell added that he would support Holiday’s offer to stay on through the end of March for free, and longer if the company wants to do so. “I think that’s a good deal for us,” he said. “They obviously did a good job with it. I understand the course is in the best shape it has been in for years. Everyone seems happy with it.” Tunnell said the county has received an email from an out-oftown company that has expressed possible interest in operating the course. Holiday Golf Course President Allan Bense said the company had a lot of upfront costs, such as moving in equipment and spraying the course with herbicides. He said it was counting on three months of revenues, including those from the usually good weather months of February and March, to recoup those costs. Ex-pastor sentenced to probation By Z A CK McDONALD 747-5071 | @PCNHzack P A N A M A C I T Y — Prosecutors have abandoned charges that a former pastor delivered a controlled substance to a minor in an attempt to seduce her, according to court documents. Also, a related charge of battery against Markus Quin Bishop, 54, of Panama City, was downgraded to a misdemeanor before he was sentenced Thursday to serve 12 months’ probation. Bishop, the former pastor at Faith Christian Family Church in Panama City Beach, was arrested in September after he allegedly provided a 16-year-old girl marijuana in an attempt to intoxicate her before professing his love and kissing her against her will, according to his arrest affidavit. The two were at Bishop’s home alone when he offered marijuana to her before suggesting they go swimming, investigators with the Bay County Sheriff’s Office reported. “The victim/child said she was extremely ‘high’ but agreed,” the report stated. According to reports, the minor became uncomfortable with Bishop’s advances in a hot tub and got out, so he suggested they get in the pool. After moving from the hot tub to the pool, Bishop took a flotation device from the girl, placed his hands on her lower back and guided her around the pool, investigators reported. MA R KUS B ISHOP Man convicted of threatening BCSO officer By Z A CK McDONALD 747-5071 | @PCNHzack P A N A M A C I T Y — A man who faces charges of impersonat ing a bail bond agent has been convicted of threat ening a law enforcement officer with ties to his arrest, state prosecutors announced Thursday. Christopher Robert Smith, 31, could face up to 30 years in prison for threatening the officer, according to prosecutors. He still faces several counts of acting as an unlicensed bail bondsman and false imprisonment. Jurors found that Smith approached Stephen O’Brien, an investigator with the Special Investigations Division of the Bay County Sheriff’s Office, twice last Sept. 21 in the Dollar General on Cherry Street in Panama City. Federal money coming to Panama City Housing Authority By BEN KLEINE 522-5114 | @BenKleinepcnh P A N A M A C I T Y — More than $500,000 earmarked by the federal government for the Panama City Housing Authority will be used for improvements at a lowincome apartment complex. The money from the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) is part of the $47.97 million awarded to Florida housing authorities for renovations and improvements, according to a news release from HUD. In the eastern Panhandle, Panama City received the most money, at $574,905. Housing Authority Executive Director Joe Woods said the organization will use it to eliminate the outdoor walkways between apartment buildings at Henry Kirkland Garden Apartments at 261 Everitt Ave. “There’s a lot of mischief out there,” Woods said. The plan is to make surrounding apartments larger. The Housing Authority already has taken that step at another complex. “We intend to renovate properties to bring them up to standard to be a part of the community,” Woods said. The Housing Authority of Springfield received $42,633 from HUD. Of the other housing authorities in the area, Chipley received $99,673, Marianna was awarded $96,829, Apalachicola got $70,562 and DeFuniak Springs received $48,473.

The American Gam ing Association announced plans Thursday to target presidential battleground states including Nevada, Iowa, Colorado, Florida, Pennsylvania and Ohio in the upcoming election in a first-time unified campaign for political support. That’s not to say the gam bling industry has been any thing but political before. The step into the mainstream, called “Gaming Votes,” represents a new chapter, though, for an industry that has mostly avoided largescale, out-in-the-open cam paigning beyond individual company endorsements, campaign donations and lob bying efforts. “It’s a more public face of a lobbying effort,” said Eric Herzik, chairman of the University of Nevada, Reno’s political science department. “Gaming is now so entrenched across the nation that they’re act ing like any other industry.” Along with urging can didates to support issues to benefit the industry, the plan will involve encouraging the industry’s workers in those states to go to the polls. Don’t expect an outright presidential endorsement, though. “We provide the facts, and we leave it up to others to make the decisions,” said Geoff Freeman, president and CEO of the American Gaming Association. And don’t expect the industry to agree on everything. “Unanimity is not an achievable goal,” said Jim Murren, CEO of MGM Resorts and chairman of the American Gaming Association. Freeman said the indus try will want a say on issues that aren’t entirely unique to their own. Immigration, tax reform, national security, health care, cyber security and more are all issues affecting the industry as well as gambling-specific policies such as anti-money laundering efforts and illegal gambling. At Thursday’s announce ment, the group already was speaking the language of presidential campaigning by uttering one word more than others: jobs. The industry group that represents the interests of massive corporate-owned and Wall Street-backed casi nos, Native American tribes and gambling machine man ufacturers touted the 1.7 mil lion jobs in the industry that span more than 200 differ ent types of careers beyond blackjack dealers and cock tail waitresses. A study from Oxford Economics commis sioned by the group said 45 percent of the workforce is a minority and 48 percent are women. “We are the melting pot of America, here,” Murren said. AP Florida is in the crosshairs of the Las Vegas-based American Gaming Association for political support during the next presidential election. Staff and wire reports WEST BAY Southwest Airlines flights to Dallas will begin March 7 Southwest Airlines will begin nonstop service from Northwest Florida Beaches International Airport (ECP) to Dallas Love Field (DAL) on March 7, airport officials announced Thursday. The airline will kick off the new service as a weekly flight on Saturdays, but plans to move to a daily flight starting April 8 and continuing through the summer season. “We are excited Southwest will offer our passengers a new nonstop flight option,” Airport Executive Director Parker McClellan said. “Dallas is a new and exciting destination for our passengers, and with a short flight time of only two hours, it makes visiting Panama City Beach a much more convenient option.” ECP also will welcome two new airlines, United Airlines and Silver Airways, next month. Tickets for the new Dallas flight, along with tickets to Southwest’s other destinations from ECP, can be purchased at . GRACEVILLE Car with 11-year-old girl inside crashes after high-speed chase Police have arrested a Graceville man who, after a high-speed pursuit, allegedly allowed the vehicle with an 11-year-old relative inside to crash into a ditch, official reported Thursday. Dave Bernard Bostic Jr., 22, was charged with aggravated fleeing or eluding and neglect of a child Wednesday night. Graceville police officers clocked a vehicle driving 55 mph in a posted 25 mph zone on College Street about 10 p.m. Wednesday. As an officer attempted to pull over the vehicle, the driver turned eastbound on State 2 and accelerated to more than 100 mph, according to a news release. A pursuit ensued, and the vehicle finally turned onto Canniehead Road before the driver abandoned the vehicle and it rolled down the road, police reported. After the vehicle rolled into a deep ditch and stopped, a pursuing deputy discovered an 11-year-old girl, a relative of Bostic, in the front passenger’s seat. Officers said the child was unharmed. A short time later, Bostic was seen walking away from the area nonchalantly. A homeowner in the area said Bostic had kicked in her back door and entered the residence and she identified him as the person walking away from the area. Bostic was arrested. A subsequent check revealed he had two warrants for grand theft auto. The homeowner declined to press charges for him entering her home. However, police arrested Bostic for the warrants and on charges of aggravated fleeing or eluding and neglect of a child. MARIANNA Lane closures set for State 276 Drivers traveling State 276 near Old Cottondale Road in Marianna will encounter temporary delays tonight as crews verify utility locations at the intersection, the Florida Department of Transportation said. The lane closure will take place from 8 p.m. to about 4 a.m. Work could be delayed or re-scheduled in the event of inclement weather. MIAMI JetBlue announces additional flights to Cuba and Haiti JetBlue Airways has announced more flights to Cuba and Haiti. The New York-based airline said Thursday it would add a new charter flight to Cuba this summer. The Friday flights from Tampa to Havana will begin June 5. Travelers have to make arrangements directly with JetBlue partner ABC Charters. Some restrictions on travel to Cuba were eased in January. JetBlue already operates three other weekly charter flights to Cuba from Tampa and Fort Lauderdale. P roposed Senate bill would nix write-in residency requirement After a legal dispute about the issue muddied a legislative race, a South Florida senator this week filed a proposal that would eliminate a residency requirement for write-in candidates. The proposal, filed by Sen. Eleanor Sobel, D-Hollywood, would delete part of state law that says write-in candidates must live at the time of qualification in the districts they seek to represent. The residency requirement touched off a court battle last year in House District 64 in Hillsborough and Pinellas counties. An appeals court sided with write-in candidate Daniel John Matthews, who sought to run for the seat but didn’t live in the district at the time of qualification.

But the commission at the Feb. 3 meeting decided to end the contract early on Feb. 17. “Most importantly, golfers want to keep the course open as long as possible,” Bense said. “We’re willing to take it through March 31 on our nickel.” Bense said he doubted Holiday Golf would want to continue to run it after that. “I think we’ll make a little bit of money,” he said. “We’re in the groove, so to speak. We have a very good staff. The weather is good.” Ray is asking the county for a longerterm lease than the five-year one he had, according to the formal offer submitted by his attorney, Michael Burke. Ray has said that would allow him to get financing to fix up the course. He has asked for a 20-year lease with one 10-year renewal. “Because of the increased term, Ray Golf will be able to offer memberships to golfers, which will lead to increased play and profitability of the course, allowing Ray Golf to make improvements to the course,” Burke stated in a letter to the commission. The course was built on county property over an old landfill. The proposal states that if Ray Golf damaged the clay cap over the landfill, then it would be responsible for the repair. However, if the cap were damaged for any other reason, the county would be responsible. Ray had operated the course from 2011 until a few months ago, when the county sent him an eviction notice after he could not produce a $25,000 bond in case the landfill liner under the course was damaged. Ray said he couldn’t get the bond and decided to leave voluntarily. But Burke pointed out in his letter to the county that Ray did deposit $25,000 in his law firm’s escrow account to satisfy the lease. After Ray left, the county issued a request for proposals for anyone interested in leasing the property free of charge with no county subsidy, but no one responded. The county had planned to shut down the course in early December, but commissioners decided to hire Holiday Golf Club to operate it with a county subsidy of $25,000 a month for three months. The course is popular with people who can’t afford the greens fees on the beach. Golfer Kenny Eastham said Thursday that he just hopes Bay Dunes stays open. “I would absolutely love to see public golf made available and kept available in Panama City,” he said. “I wish that parties could agree on a way to do that.” CONVICTED from Page B1 O’Brien was in the store to buy a battery for a toy belonging to his 4-year-old daughter, who was in the store with O’Brien. Smith threatened to harm O’Brien during the encounters, blocked O’Brien from leaving in his vehicle and took photographs of O’Brien and his car, officials said. Smith knew O’Brien from a 2012 narcotics investigation in which O’Brien was a witness. During that investigation, BCSO was called to assist the Florida Department of Financial Services Division of Insurance Fraud in a search of Smith’s home. Smith was arrested for impersonating a bail bondsman after he allegedly apprehended two people and took them to jail, and for a variety of drug-related charges, according to court documents. Charges ranging from trafficking in illegal drugs, possession of steroids and prescription forms, and felon in possession of a firearm were dropped after Smith’s attorney demonstrated that BCSO gathered the evidence during what a judge called an “illegal search.” Smith’s attorney argued that BCSO requested information on firearms, indicating they had been seized, before they received a search warrant for Smith’s home and vehicle. Circuit Court Judge Brantley Clark ruled the officers “conducted an illegal search of (Smith’s) home and vehicle prior to obtaining a consent to search,” but the BCSO has said Smith gave verbal and written consent to the search prior to requesting the search warrant. Smith also claimed BCSO obtained statements from himself and his father, a Panama City police officer, by allegedly implying no criminal consequences would follow. However, Clark has allowed those statements to be admitted as evidence during Smith’s trial for allegedly acting as an unlicensed bail bondsman. A trial date for those charges has not been set. Smith’s next scheduled court appearance to submit a motion on the active charges is set for Feb. 27, the same date as his sentence hearing for threatening O’Brien. EX-PASTOR from Page B1 Bishop then began kissing her waist. She got out of the pool to get away, but he followed. Bishop walked up to her and began kissing her on the mouth against her will, police said. Prosecutors earlier this week abandoned charges of contributing to the delinquency of a minor and delivery of controlled substance to minor by an adult. Prosecutors also downgraded the charge of felony battery to a misdemeanor. In addition to 12 months’ probation, Bishop was ordered to undergo random drug screenings, according to court documents.

The panel at Florida International Univer sity followed last month’s Caribbean Energy Security Summit in Washington, where Vice President Joe Biden said the U.S. was poised to help Caribbean countries that could address corruption and make needed regulatory changes. The U.S. ambassadors to Haiti, the Dominican Repub lic, Jamaica, Suriname and Barbados and the eastern Caribbean participated in the panel hosted by FIU’s Latin American and Carib bean Center. The U.S. wants to encourage more American investment in Caribbean energy projects, such as a new wind farm in Jamaica, “but we need to have and provide a safe and secure environment,” said Luis Moreno, the ambassador to Jamaica. With falling oil prices shaking Venezuela’s econ omy, the Caribbean is inter ested in finding alternatives to Petrocaribe, a decade-old trade program created by the late President Hugo Chavez that requires mem ber countries to pay only a small portion of the up-front costs for oil, allowing them to finance the rest under longterm debt agreements. The ambassadors derided the program, though they acknowledged it wasn’t likely to end soon even as they push Caribbean coun tries to consider shifting to natural gas or other energy alternatives. “We want to encourage individuality. We want to get these countries to sit up for themselves,” said Moreno, who called Petrocaribe “a blunt political instrument.” Aside from Venezuela’s influence, the Caribbean faces a number of chal lenges that concern the U.S, such as border secu rity, rising Chinese influ ence in the region, human rights, weak infrastructure, a lack of regional coordi nation and vulnerability to climate change and natural disasters. There’s also been a rise in drug, arms and human trafficking in some eastern Caribbean islands. Ambassadors to Caribbean nations seek improvements to security, energy “ We want to encourage individuality. We want to get these countries to sit up for themselves.” Luis Moreno U.S. ambassador to Jamaica Caribbean reports record tourists, spending in 2014 AP Beachfront houses are pictured in the exclusive neighborhood of Ocean Park in San Juan, Puerto Rico. Tourism is at record highs in the Caribbean. SUNNY OUTLOOK? SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico (AP) — A record 26.3 million people traveled to the Caribbean last year and spent an unprecedented amount of money in what is considered the world’s most tourism-dependent region, officials said Tuesday. It is the fifth consecutive year the Caribbean has reported an increase in tourists after an economic cri sis that forced resorts to shut down and caused a drop in visitors and spending. Hugh Riley, the Caribbean Tour ism Organization’s secretary gen eral, said Caribbean tourism rose by 5.3 percent, while the worldwide tour ism growth rate was 4.7 percent. Officials attributed the increase in part to improvements at airports around the region, the opening of new hotel chains and an increase in direct flights and airline seat capacity. The Dutch Caribbean saw the most growth, with Aruba for the first time reporting more than 1 million visitors. The Dominican Repub lic, Cuba and Jamaica also saw an unprecedented number of visitors. Smaller destinations including Haiti, St. Lucia and Belize reported a record number of stay-over arrivals. A surge in visitors from Canada, the U.S. and Europe helped set those records. “It tells us that stability is return ing to the market,” said Richard Sealy, chairman of the Caribbean Tourism Organization. Tourists overall spent more than $29 billion in the Caribbean last year, an increase of more than $1 billion over the previous year. The region also welcomed almost 24 million cruise ship passengers last year, an 8 percent increase, though Winfield Griffith, the organization’s research director, said he expected “another shift away from the Carib bean as the cruise lines try to diver sity their product” in 2015. Tourism officials also are keep ing an eye on Cuba, with the island expected to attract far more tourists this year as relations between the U.S. and Cuba begin to thaw. Riley said the organization plans to promote multi-destination travel to ease the potential impact on other islands. 2014 is the fifth consecutive year the Caribbean has reported an increase in tourists after an economic crisis that forced resorts to shut down and caused a drop in visitors and spending.

M Facebook post sparks investigation of Marianna horse farm ‘Zombie cat’ is subject of custody lawsuit TAMPA (AP) — A lawsuit has been filed against the Humane Society of Tampa Bay seeking custody of a so-called “zombie cat,” once thought dead until he crawled from his grave. The Humane Society was notified Tuesday it was being sued by Ellis Huston, the Tampa feline owner. Huston brought the cat to the Humane Society, which has been nursing the cat to health but has refused to return it to Huston. The Humane Society said on its website it was review ing its legal options to keep the cat safe. By JENNIFER RICH 628-9092 | @WCN_HCT BONIFAY — The Hol mes County community was left buzzing after a social media post accusing a Bonifay horse farm of the neglect and abuse of over two dozen horses went viral last week. Amy Shepherd of the Marianna-based Hidden Springs Horse Rescue said a quick response was what she had in mind when she authored the Feb. 5 Face book post expressing con cern about information she received regarding con ditions at Lewis Quarter Horses in Bonifay. “Last Monday, I received a message from a lady (who went to Lewis Quar ter Horses) to look at some horses for sale,” Shepherd said in a phone interview. “She was horrified by what she saw and called the sher iff’s department. They were no help, and she wanted to know if we could help her.” Shepherd’s post included graphic photos of horses appearing to be in very poor health. One was missing an eye, another had a tumor growing on its face and oth ers had lesions and appeared underweight. What seemed to grab the most attention was a photo of yet another, lying on its side with blood pooling from its mouth after it was euthanized. The Holmes County Sheriff’s Office conducted a welfare check of the prop erty, and three of the farm’s 27 horses were deemed in poor health by inspectors. The Lewises provided feed and medical bills to show a history of the horses’ care. The investigation also revealed more information about some of the images posted online, including that the horse with lesions on its side had a persistent infec tion despite vet treatment, JENNIFER RICH | Times-Advertiser Officials said most of the horses at Lewis Quarter Horses were in good condition after they investigated abuse allegations stemming from a Facebook post. and one caused sores on its own chin by rubbing on the barbed-wire fence in an attempt to mate with another horse. Still, deputies con tacted the Humane Society of America and turned over the investiga tion to the Department of Agriculture. Shepherd said though her organization doesn’t typically approach a res cue as she did in this case, she feels no remorse for making the Facebook post that spurred the investigation and got the community up in arms. At press time, Shep herd’s post had received over 1,500 shares and more than 600 comments. Because the case is still open, Brenda Lewis declined to comment other than to say the farm has been compliant with treatment plans set forth by Department of Agri culture vets. “I’m just going to let the people doing the investigation figure out who’s doing what wrong,” Lewis said. “It’s all going to come out in the wash.” AP


Sports PANAMA CITY NEWS HERALD Section C Facebook: Twitter: @NH_Sports FRIDAY February 13, 2015 By DUSTIN KENT 747-5065 | @PCNHDustinKent CHIPLEY — After fall ing one win short of a state championship in each of the past two seasons, Chipley will try to make it to Lake land for one more try tonight in the Region 2-1A girls bas ketball finals. The Lady Tigers (16-7) will host District 3 rival Freeport (21-4) at 7 p.m. in the fourth and most impor tant meeting of the season between the two. The teams split their reg ular-season matchups, both winning at home, before Chi pley beat Freeport 48-46 for the district championship on Jan. 31. That win earned the Lady Tigers homecourt advan tage for the regional semi finals where they routed South Walton 60-26, while Freeport went on the road and knocked off District 4 champion Port St. Joe 49-40. The rivals will reacquaint themselves for what almost surely is going to be another closely contested game. “It will be a battle,” Chi pley coach Kim Tuel said Thursday. “As always, it’s going to be the team that makes the least amount of mistakes that wins.” Chipley won the first meeting 50-44 on Dec. 8, with Freeport winning the rematch 61-53 on Jan. 13. In the district title game, Free port took a 21-10 first-quar ter lead, but the Lady Tigers won the final three quarters 38-25 to earn the win. After three games, there isn’t much that either team could do to surprise the other. Tuel said that the key to success against Freeport is pretty clear. “You just have to shut down their two shooters and try to contain the point guard,” Tuel said. “You have to do a good job containing Katie O’Neal and her sister (Megan O’Neal) because she can shoot it from anywhere.” Megan O’Neal has been one of the top shooters in the state this season. She has converted 107 of 250 3-point attempts (43 percent) and is averaging 20 points per game. Katie O’Neal leads the team with 22.8 points, 6.1 assists, and 5.6 rebounds per game. Katie O’Neal has made 59-144 from three (41 per cent), while senior Laura Ham provides another longrange threat with 38 made 3-pointers on the season. Chipley has its own Chipley girls seek berth in final 4 Stewart-Haas Racing puts Busch backup plan in place DAYTONA BEACH (AP) — Team owner Tony Stewart has a contin gency plan in place should Kurt Busch be unable to drive this season because of his legal troubles. “I’m very hopeful we won’t have to worry about it,” Stewart said Thursday. “I feel bad that he’s in that situation right now, that they’re both in that situation. We have to be smart, and we have to have a plan in place if it doesn’t work out for whatever reason.” Busch’s former girlfriend, Patricia Driscoll, filed a petition for a protection order in November, claiming that Busch assaulted her inside his motorhome at Dover International Speedway in Septem ber, grabbing her by the face and neck and slamming her head three times into a bedroom wall. She said she drove to Dover from her Mary land home to check on Busch after he sent several texts that led her to believe he might be depressed. Busch, the 2004 NASCAR cham pion, has continued to drive for Stewart-Haas Racing and expected to drive the No. 41 in the seasonopening Daytona 500. “I feel like it’s full throttle, full steam ahead,” Busch said at Day tona 500 media day. Busch, 36, has denied the assault allegations. He testified that he repeatedly told Driscoll to leave after she showed up uninvited and unannounced at his motorhome a “I feel like it’s full throttle, full steam ahead.” Kurt Busch 2004 NASCAR champion Daytona 500 media day included a lot of talk — about puppy love, wedding rings and a growing mullet — and conversations about four-time champion Jeff Gordon and possibly his final ride in NASCAR’S most prestigious race.

Ray scored the deciding point in the Eagles’ triumph. Eagles’ late free throw turns back host Bucs By PAT McCANN 747-5068 | T witter: @patmccann PANAMA CITY — Forget for a moment all this talk about deflating footballs. North Bay Haven and North Florida Christian discovered a way to deflate the scoreboard on Thursday night. Not that the Eagles are complaining. Melvin Ray made the second of two free throws with 3.5 seconds left as NFC survived the Buccaneers 30-29 in a Region 1-3A boys basketball quarterfinal. The outcome prevented the Bucs from winning the first region game in any sport in school history and ended their season 19-10. The Eagles, 11-13, move on to the semifinals Tuesday at Maclay. Ray’s free throw, his only point of the game, capped an improbable finish to an implausible ebb and flow for 32 minutes. The 6-foot-5 senior has been NFC’s leading scorer throughout the season, but was suffering from a foot injury Thursday, according to his coach, Rob Cronin. Yet Cronin didn’t hesitate to draw up a play for Ray after NBH’s David Jones had tied the game 29-29 with a 3-pointer with 35 seconds left. “Because he’s the main guy,” Cronin explained. “He performs under pressure.” H EATHER L EIPHART | the News Herald Rutherford’s Josh Wade (1) tries to finish over three Suwannee defenders in Thursday’s regional quarterfinal game. By DUSTIN KENT 747-5065 | @PCNHDustinKent SPRINGFIELD — Fac ing a Suwannee team that plays predominantly zone with athletic 6-foot-9 center Kevarrius Hayes at the back, Rutherford coach Rhondie Ross told his team that a quick start and an early lead could force the Bulldogs to go man-to-man. Senior guard Gabe Steele provided the hot start with a spectacular early shooting display and Ross was a prophet as the Bulldogs played mostly man-to-man for the final three quarters and the Rams are moving on. Steele scored 14 of his game-high 31 points in the first quarter to spark Rutherford to a 77-62 victory Thursday night in the Region1-5A quarterfinals. The Rams, 24-3, advanced to play at Rickards on Tuesday in the semifinals. “Gabe really did set the tone for us early on,” Ross said. “He hit five shots in a row, I think, and that gave a lot of energy to the building and to the team.” It was the Bulldogs who struck first with a dunk by Hayes off of a lob pass off the opening tip. But Steele hit a 3-pointer and followed with another moments later for a 6-4 lead. SEE BUCS | C3 SEE R AMS | C3

DAYT O NA BEACH (AP) — Daytona 500 media day included a lot of talk — about puppy love, wed ding rings and a growing mullet — and conversations about four-time champion Jeff Gordon and possibly his final ride in NASCAR’S most prestigious race. NASCAR’s biggest stars took center stage for the annual event held inside Daytona International Speedway on Thursday. Danica Patrick defended the GoDaddy puppy com mercial that was pulled from the Super Bowl after criticism from animal-rights groups, saying “people have an opinion about everything, especially when you get into that world of animal rights or tree rights or whatever rights.” Defending Sprint Cup champion Kevin Har vick welcomed the chal lenge of trying to repeat. Embattled driver Kurt Busch insisted he would be in the car all season despite a lingering court case involv ing a former girlfriend. And 2012 champion Brad Kes elowski said he was one of the series’ three best driv ers after a fiery 2014 season that included fisticuffs and bruised feelings. Those were just some of the highlights. Here are the others: EARNHARDT’S PH O BIA: NASCAR’s biggest star has a little phobia. Dale Earnhardt Jr. revealed that he wants nothing to do with jewelry. Necklaces, rings, bracelets, no way. “It’s creepy to me,” said the two-time and defending Day tona 500 champion. “I can be in the same room with it. It doesn’t bother me on other people.” Earnhardt and his longtime girlfriend, Amy Reimann, already have talked about what might happen down the road if they get married. Earnhardt has no plans to give in, saying he won’t wear a ring but will get her one if she wants. “I’m not going to be held accountable and she can do what ever she wants,” he said. “I figure if we ever get to that step in life that I owe her that much, so I’ll have to put up with that. But I’m free of all my obligations in that regard.” B O WYER B O MBS: Clint Bowyer doesn’t believe in omens, but he looks back at last year’s Daytona 500 as an indication he was in for a disappointing season. Bowyer sat through a lengthy rain delay, only to suffer an engine failure when the race resumed. He finished 42nd and left Day tona ranked 39th in the standings. Bowyer went on to his second consecutive winless season and failed to make the Chase for the Sprint Cup championship. “I knew last year — I’m weird about thinking — but when we blew up at the start of the year at the Daytona 500, I knew some thing just didn’t feel right because we’ve always been able to come down here and run pretty good and get the year started off right and leave here with momen tum and excitement and confi dence,” Bowyer said. “We were all dejected leaving the first race, so that was not very good.” Bowyer is hopeful that behindthe-scenes changes made at Michael Waltrip Racing will lead to a far more successful season — beginning this weekend when he races in Saturday night’s exhi bition Sprint Unlimited. “I feel like now it’s a group effort,” he said. “When you’re in the meetings, there’s a lot of people and a lot of voices being heard and you didn’t necessarily hear that last year.” J O HNS O N’S PURSUIT: Jimmie Johnson was only medio cre by the standards he set for his team during his six championship seasons. So it was a disappointment when he was eliminated from title contention in the second round of last year’s Chase. Johnson believes his Hendrick Motor sports team learned from the experience and will be far better this season. “When you’re struggling, you almost have a shotgun approach, and you’re trying to hit a wide pat tern and see what brings speed,” Johnson said. “When you unload off the truck and you’re fast, you get much more into like a rifle sce nario and you’re very precise with the changes you make, and there’s a lot of speed in the details. “Sometimes you can recover if you unload slow and you get in the game and can be close and have a shot at winning, but in most cases you’re an adjustment or two behind all weekend, and you just never get there, and then that’s the hard part.” He goes into this year again trying to tie Richard Petty and Dale Earnhardt for seven cham pionships, the NASCAR record. MU LL ET MANIA: Ricky Stenhouse Jr. is sticking with his mullet — no matter what girlfriend Danica Patrick thinks. Stenhouse said he’s commit ted to the hairdo despite pleas from Patrick to cut the curled-up locks that hang over the collar of his fire suit. “Mom loves it,” Stenhouse said. “It’s always nice to keep mom happy.” What about Patrick? “Ehhhh, maybe not so much,” Stenhouse added. “We’ll see. Right now, it’s the most committed I’ve been to it since I was younger, which I don’t guess was my deci sion. I think that was my mom’s decision when I was younger.” Puppies, rings, mullets highlight Daytona 500 media day C LINT BOWYER TIGERS from Page C1 DAYTONA 500 from Page C1 week after he broke off their relation ship. He said Driscoll demanded that he tell her son to his face that their rela tionship was over, and that she ignored his repeated requests to leave. Finally, Busch said, he cupped Driscoll’s cheeks with his hand, looked her in the eye and told her once again that she needed to leave. A Dover police detective testified that Busch told him Driscoll’s head “tapped” the wall at that time. Stewart did not reveal specifics of his plan if Busch is eventually ordered by a court to stay away from his exgirlfriend and winds up being punished by NASCAR. The Stewart-Haas Rac ing co-owner said he was surprised Busch’s case has dragged to the start of the season. NASCAR defines penalties for adjusting side skirts DAYT O NA BEACH — NASCAR is clearly defining penalties for teams caught manipulat ing side skirts on cars. Anyone who makes unap proved adjustments under caution will be forced to return to pit road for repairs. That car will then restart at the back of the field and have to serve a pass-thru penalty under a green flag. Should the unapproved adjustment be made during a green-flag stop, the team would be forced back to the pits. Any crew mem ber caught making unapproved adjustments will receive a warning, but the penalty could increase for habitual offenders. Teams began flaring side skirts last season, and although many believed it was a rules viola tion, NASCAR took no action. It led to many teams feeling as if they had to do it to keep up with others. The rules bulletin issued Thursday also defined qualifying procedures. NASCAR will enforce pit-road speed and proper blending onto the track. NASCAR also will penalize any driver impeding a competitor during qualifying, and their lap could be disallowed.


SPORT S Friday, February 13, 2015 | The News Herald | Page C3 Then came a flurry that put the Rams ahead 18-6. Steele scored on a drive, Destin Dunton had a steal and layup, Josh Wade had a nice lefty layup in traffic and Steele nailed his third and fourth 3-pointers. Suwannee, 19-7, clawed its way back into it in the second quarter thanks to the combination of Hayes and speedy sophomore guard Jamari Wheeler. Hayes blocked Wade’s shot and raced upcourt for a follow dunk to make it 24-19 with four minutes until halftime. The Rams held the lead at 31-25 at the break and quickly extended it back to double digits when Dunton opened the second half with a driving one-handed dunk in traffic. Another 3-pointer by Steele made it 38-27. Rutherford took its big gest lead after a pair of strong drives to the bas ket by Curtis Turner and a backdoor cut by Steele for a reverse layup. That made it 50-33 late in the third quarter. The Bulldogs used a 7-0 run to get back to within 12 at 52-40 going into the fourth quarter. A putback by Wheeler and four straight free throws by Wheeler and Hayes trimmed the margin to 5348 with 5:45 to play. The Rams had one more spurt to secure the victory. A transition layup by Steele and a free throw by Turner made it 66-56 with 2:04 remaining. Rutherford closed it out by making 11 of 14 free throws in the final 2 minutes. “It’s a great win for our program,” Ross said. “These guys beat us here two years ago, so we weren’t lacking any motivation. The guys battled all night and got a big win.” Wheeler had 30 points and Hayes 19 for Suwannee. No other Bulldog had more than four. Rutherford will travel to Tallahassee on Tuesday to take on Rickards, which eliminated Arnold 63-40 Thursday.

RAMS from Page C1 HEAT H ER LEI PH ART | The News Herald Rutherford’s Gabe Steele (11) scored a game-high 31 points in the Rams’ 77-62 victory. BUCS from Page C1 Ray drove to the basket to draw a foul as the seconds counted down. He missed the first of his two attempts, then swished the gamewinner. North Bay Haven had the length of the court to attempt an answer. After a timeout, the Bucs inbounded and looked for Jones at midcourt, but the ball was batted away and the horn sounded. “We were trying to get D.J. the ball coming off a screen,” Bucs coach Erin Williams said. “It just didn’t work out.” That North Bay Haven had a chance to win, or at least force overtime, seemed distant throughout most of the game. Not only did the Bucs have more turnovers (seven) than points (five) in the first half, they went an incredible 13 minutes without scoring. Included was a scoreless second quarter. North Florida Christian led 15-5 at intermission when Tanner Clemmons converted an offensive rebound. It could have been worse if not for some stout NBH defense. “We had something like 19 shots 7 feet or in,” Williams lamented the Bucs’ offensive execution. At halftime, he had a message for the Bucs. “‘Hey, we’re playing sloppy,’ ” Williams said he told his team. “It was too much individual. We had to play our ball.” Chad Hinrichs, North Bay Haven’s 6-7 center, finally ended the drought with a spin move 1 minute into the third quarter. The Eagles extended their lead back to 20-11 when Marvin Scott nailed a 3pointer from the left wing, and when Jones answered with a three and Hinrichs scored off an assist by Jack Hayes, NBH got within 20-16. Scott answered again with a 3-pointer and it was 23-16 entering the fourth quarter. Not only did Scott lead NFC with 13 points, he played outstanding defense against Jones, whose scoring average is nearly 20 points per game. With Mitch Moss working hard underneath for all of his team-high 11 points and Hinrichs clearing both boards for 13 rebounds, Jones finally found an offensive spark. His drive to the basket got the Bucs within 24-21, but the Eagles looked like they had finally settled the outcome when Scott made two free throws with 1:38 to go to make it 29-24. Moss again made it a three-point game, then Ray had one of his six blocks on the Bucs’ next possession and they were in desperation mode. Ethan Fariss’ steal led to Jones tying 3-pointer, however, which was the penultimate improbable moment of the game. Ray provided the last one. Jones had 10 points for North Bay Haven and Moss added nine rebounds.

STAT SHEET Page C4 | The News Herald | Friday, February 13, 2015 Daly near the top at Pebble Beach PEBBLE BEACH, Calif. — Sunshine is always a pleasant surprise at Pebble Beach, and Thursday brought a real stunner: John Daly was near the top of the leaderboard. With his best opening round on the PGA Tour in nearly 10 years, Daly kept a clean card at Pebble Beach on a magnificent day along the Monterey Peninsula for a 7-under 65, leaving him one shot behind J.B. Holmes and Justin Hicks in the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am. Daly won an exhibition in Turkey last year. The last official win for the two-time major champion was at Torrey Pines in 2004. So when Daly rolled in a 15-foot birdie putt on his final hole, one of the volunteers wasn’t joking when he said, “Daly is at 7 under? On his own?” Daly laughed when he heard that. Then again, this day could put anyone in a good mood. Donaldson, Phelps have arbitration hearings ST. PETERSBURG — Toronto All-Star third baseman Josh Donaldson and Miami pitcher David Phelps have argued salary arbitration cases with their new teams before three-person panels. Donaldson asked Steven Wolf, Robert Herzog and Gary Kendellen for $5,725,000 on Thursday, and the Blue Jays offered $4.3 million. Phelps requested $1,875,000 from Mark Burstein, Dennis Archer and Sylvia Skratek, and the Marlins made their case for $1.4 million. Decisions are likely today. Players and teams have split six decisions, and the eight cases that have gone to hearings are the most since clubs went 5-3 in 2010. Rose scores 30 to lead Bulls past Cavs CHICAGO — Derrick Rose scored 30 points, and the Chicago Bulls handed Cleveland just its second loss in 16 games, beating the Cavaliers 113-98 Thursday night.

DIVERSIONS A ces On BRIDGE: B obby W olff Should youngsters go to ‘no kids allowed’ wedding? DEAR AMY: My son and his fiancee live in California and will be married there this summer. My son’s fiancee seems warm and friendly. My family and I live in the Midwest. My sister has three sons in grade school and is planning to take them to the wedding. The children have never been to California, and they are excited about this trip. Also, my nephews adore my son and are looking forward to seeing him get married. However, my son’s fiancee has informed us that only adults are invited to the wedding, and she has already informed her family of this requirement (they all live in California). We have asked the couple to make an exception, given the long distance my family is traveling for the wedding. So far, they haven’t responded. The nephews will only be attending the ceremony and not the reception, so we cannot understand what the issue is. I think my sister should bring her sons to the wedding anyway and hope for the best. I would greatly appreciate any advice or suggestions about this. RB DEAR RB: It is obvious you love these kids and feel confident they would enjoy this family wedding, but this is not about them. I agree that having children at a wedding ceremony makes a wonderful statement about what family is (or should be) all about, but if the marrying couple have made a unilateral decision and have given everyone the benefit of total clarity about it, then you and other family members should respect this. Advising your sister to bring the kids along “and hope for the best” is a terrible idea — certainly coming from a future parent-in-law. By advising this you are basically declaring to your son and his bride that you will not respect boundaries if you don’t agree with them. What a tough way to start an important relationship! The parents of these children should reach out directly to ask for an exception, stressing that the children would attend only the wedding ceremony. The couple may have valid reasons for not permitting children, but regardless, if they cannot be persuaded to invite these pint-size guests, then the kids should not be there. DEAR AMY: My aunt and uncle died about 10 years ago; they were both well into their 90s. Because they had no children, I inherited their things — including a very large painting which was a gift from my aunt’s muchyounger cousin (he has now passed away). The painting is of my aunt and uncle, taken from their 50th anniversary photo. It’s a very nice rendition, but I’m not sure what to do with it. There are no other relatives I could offer it to, and I don’t really have room for it. I hate to just trash it; I feel that would be disrespectful to their memory. Do you have any suggestions? CONCERNED NIECE DEAR NIECE: I have several portraits in my home of people I don’t know — acquired from estate sales and antique stores. Many people like to imagine the lives behind the portraits. Whether it is for kitsch value or an interest in a period piece, I don’t think it’s disrespectful to sell or give this piece away to someone who wants it. If this idea doesn’t appeal to you, photograph the painting in the frame, so you have a record of it. Then remove the painting from the frame, make sure the subjects are identified on the back of the canvas and roll it up to make it less bulky. DEAR AMY: I can empathize with “Looking,” the highly accomplished woman in her early 30s who keeps attracting loser guys. Been there, done that! When I turned 40, I had an aha! moment. I told myself, “You don’t have to do this anymore.” The relief was palpable. For two decades I’ve had a life of solitude and celibacy; my life is so full and satisfying that riding the emotional roller coaster again would be a comedown. SUSAN IN COLORADO DEAR SUSAN: What a wonderful perspective. Thank you.

Foreign territory is where the connection is lost. The boundaries are fuzzy at best, and that’s why it’s important you map them in your own way. GEMINI (May 21-June 21): As dangerous as it is to climb Mt. Everest, hundreds of people do it every day. You have your own version of a dangerous quest you’d like to accomplish, and this is a fine time to sort out the details and make a plan. CANCER (June 22-July 22): In this age of unmanned space missions, drones and the like, you wish you could send a robot to perform some of today’s more tedious duties. Alas, your human touch will make all the difference to someone. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): The unfortunate consequences of carrying out bad instructions must always be weighted against the rival set of unfortunate consequences that come with questioning and challenging the one giving the orders. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Even though you are persuasive when dealing with rational people, there are those who can’t be reasoned with. It’s pointless to try! Remain polite, keep your distance and ignore them. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23): Haven’t you noticed that you often get the thing you were going for? Don’t take this for granted! On the other hand, not getting what you want can be painful, but at least it helps you appreciate your successes. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21): What if you believed you are now who you most wanted to be and you knew exactly what you were doing when you decided upon it? How would that change your approach? Have confidence. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Love and happiness are the central point. If you’re not getting enough of a chance to love, be loved and pursue happiness, rethink your lifestyle. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): The rule is always to dress a step above your rank, and when you apply it, you’ll be seen as someone going places. Such things matter today, and your execution will be flawless. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): People seem more interested than they should be in your choices, but that doesn’t give them THAT SCRAMBLED WORD GAME by David L. Hoyt and Jeff Knurek Answer: History TODAY Today is Friday, Feb. 13, the 44th day of 2015. There are 321 days left in the year. Highlight in history On Feb. 13, 1935, a jury in Flemington, New Jersey, found Bruno Richard Hauptmann guilty of first-degree murder in the kidnap-slaying of Charles A. Lindbergh Jr., the son of Charles and Anne Lindbergh. (Hauptmann was later executed.) On this date 1542 — The fifth wife of England’s King Henry VIII, Catherine Howard, was executed for adultery. 1861 — Abraham Lincoln was officially declared winner of the 1860 presidential election as electors cast their ballots. 1914 — The American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers, ASCAP, was founded in New York. 1920 — The League of Nations recognized the perpetual neutrality of Switzerland. 1945 — During World War II, Allied planes began bombing the German city of Dresden. The Soviets captured Budapest, Hungary, from the Germans. 1960 — France exploded its first atomic bomb in the Sahara Desert. 1965 — During the Vietnam War, President Lyndon B. Johnson authorized Operation Rolling Thunder, an extended bombing campaign against the North Vietnamese. 1975 — A fire set by a disgruntled custodian broke out on the 11th floor of the north tower of New York’s World Trade Center; the blaze spread to six floors, but caused no direct casualties.

Friday, February 13, 2015 PanamaCity.Com PAGE 3 SPRINGFIELD — It was a standing-room-only night at The Ghetto Palace, a venue opened by owners Crook and Victoria Stewart to support the area’s musicians and singers. The crowd hovered in half of the converted church’s open area, sipping their favorite beverages. The stage took up the other side of the room, with guitars at the ready, mic stands, amps, stools, a full drum kit and other esoteric devices. Crook Stewart adjusted levels with a touch-screen tablet. A sign-up sheet at the front door was full. Musicians got to play and sing two songs, tell a little about themselves and where else you could go to listen to them perform, then scoot out of the way for the next performer. In between sets, Crook Stewart would remind patrons that the purpose of the show was to get out the word that “Music Matters,” that these performers were playing all over the county, and that we should go out to their venues to hear more and show our support. It was all free, from entry to refreshments, and it was all for the sake of the musicians. In an hour’s time on Tuesday night, I heard covers of a Beatles song, an Elton John hit, and a Leonard Cohen standard, at least three original songs, two electric guitar solos by an 11-year-old, a rendition of “Stormy Weather,” and more. All genres, styles and levels of accomplishment were welcome, and the crowd was eager to applaud. People swayed, tapped their feet, bobbed their heads. A few couples grabbed some oor space to dance. And everywhere I turned, I saw familiar faces — Scott Clemons, Pam Wiggins, John Russo, Bryan Taylor, Lauren DeGeorge, and more. Crook Stewart, who has been a road manager for major musical acts including the Rolling Stones and Crosby, Stills and Nash, is a big supporter of local musicians. He promoted the downtown music scene, saying he hopes to see Panama City become known as “Music City F-L-A.” These open mic nights at his Ghetto Palace are one way he models how the rest of the community can get behind the music too. The goal, Stewart said, is to offer an eclectic array of music at downtown shops and restaurants that would bring in more paying customers and revitalize the scene. Musicians play at no expense to the businesses, which would attract patrons, and in return musicians could collect tips, sell CDs, and build an audience for their music. If it’s any indication of how badly people really want to hear live music: The street shoulders and parking lots for a block around the Ghetto Palace were packed with vehicles Tuesday. “We had a feeling that it would be a good night, but even I was surprised when I stepped out to open doors and there was a line down the street,” Stewart said in a Facebook post. “We had some really great musical talent on stage, and we went past midnight to get everyone up to play. We had almost ve hours of non-stop music.” Peace . NATHAN SIMMONS | Contributed Photo Sarah Moranville performs ‘Hallelujah’ at The Ghetto Palace in Springeld on Tuesday.

Aaron Neville headlines free concert in PCB By JAN WADDY 747-5072 | @JanWaddy1 PANAMA CITY BEACH — Try your luck and fall in love with Mardi Gras all over again this weekend at the beach. The Krewe of Dominique Youx continues a 29-year tradition in Bay County with this weekend’s parades at the Panama City Beach Mardi Gras and Music Festival. The festival always takes place the weekend before Fat Tuesday, and this year that falls on Friday the 13th and Valentine’s Day. “The Second Line Parade at 6:30 p.m. Friday will start at the head of Pier Park,” said John Dunaway, PR director for the Krewe of Dominique Youx, who encourages the community to dress up and join in. “We enjoy seeing people dress in pirate garb, wench garb. We have a lot of people dress up in fabulous costumes.” The Village Brass band will lead the parade of people through the streets of Pier Park on Friday, just as the Krewe’s Royalty Float Tours wrap up. The Krewe’s 2015 reigning royalty includes Dominique Youx XXIX, Jim Percival, and Queen Vicki Swenk. This year’s court also includes Ben Johnson, Griggs Espyy, Jimmy Williams, Steve Bates, Avery Adcock, Steve Goodwiller, along with princesses Cathy Register, Nancy Crow, Ashley Stone-Benedik, Lynn Couch, Denise Perno and Mimi Morrow. Festival-goers of all ages who dress up this weekend also can participate in costume contests. The Krewe of Dominique Youx will have eight oats this year, including ladies’ oats, such as Jewels of the Sea. Though none of the oats are new, members often add new features. “The princesses will be in their individual convertibles,” said Dunaway, who added a total of 75 units will be in the Mardi Gras Parade. The Krewe will throw tons of beads, as well as “traditional” stuffed toys and moon pies to crowds that have reached 50,000 in years past. “We are Bay County’s original Mardi Gras Krewe,” said Dunaway, who recalled the days of parading in golf carts in Bay Point. The 2014 Panama City Beach Mardi Gras and Music Festival was named one of the top ve Mardi Gras events by Bustle Magazine for festivals outside of New Orleans. “Last year, we took over management and promotion of the event for the Krewe at their request, so we wanted to up our Mardi Gras,” said Richard Sanders, vice president of Sports & Special Events for the Panama City Beach Convention & Visitors Bureau (CVB). “When you say Mardi Gras, the rst thing you think of is New Orleans. I’m kind of a s guy and knew Dr. John was a big part of New Orleans.” So, this year, Sanders said they asked themselves, “How do we top that?” Grammy-Award winning Aaron Neville will headline a free concert at 1:30 p.m. Saturday at Aaron Bessant Park Amphitheatre. “I knew Neville was big in New Orleans and he had a song with Linda Rondstadt — ‘I don’t know much, but I know I love you’ ... He’s a crooner and Mardi Gras is on Valentine’s,” Sanders said. Neville and Rondstadt’s “Don’t Know Much” was a worldwide hit in 1989. Neville’s latest album, “My True Story,” was released in 2013 on Blue Note Records. “The previous year we had Dr. John on Friday night and we froze,” Sanders added. “This year we made sure the headliner was in the warmest part of the day. We booked him way back in July. The main purpose is to keep the standard we’ve established. Victor Wainright & Wildroots are known as the next up-and-coming Dr. John. On Friday night they should put on a great show. And the parade is second to none in the region.” The festival and setting also is a big part of Mardi Gras. “Vendors will have everything from food sales to novelties to merchandise,” said Michael Kerrigan, Pier Park’s director of marketing and business development. “We have a hot dog vendor, seafood and po boys, beer sales and specialty drink sales. All of our restaurants will be open.” Even though alcoholic drinks will be sold, the event is for all ages. “Adults will be drinking and having a good time, but it’s very important to be familyfriendly,” Dunaway added. Girls Inc. will host children’s activities. “The Kids Zone is a lot of little free games where they can win prizes,” Kerrigan said. “Pier Park Amusements will be open doing their normal operation.” Each night ends with a bang — about 30 minutes of reworks from the City Pier. “It’s family-friendly and totally free,” Sanders said. “Something that makes it special is it’s a community event.” PAGE 8 PanamaCity.Com Friday, February 13, 2015 Friday, February 13, 2015 PanamaCity.Com PAGE 9 2015 MARDI GRAS AT THE BEACH SCHEDULE FRIDAY, FEB. 13 4-6:30 p.m.: Krewe of Dominique Youx Royalty Tent/Float Tours at L.C.

PAGE 12 PanamaCity.Com Friday, February 13, 2015 By TONY SIMMONS 747-5080 | @PCTonyS PANAMA CITY — Local author Michael Lister will debut the rst short lm to feature his prison chaplain/ detective John Jordan, as well as a new John Jordan prequel novel, at a red carpet event Friday. “Spilled Blood” is the title of the lm, which stars several local actors and was shot on locations in Gulf and Bay counties. “Innocent Blood” is the new novel, which jumps back in time to tell a story of a young John Jordan and his run-in with the infamous Atlanta child murderer in the 1980s. The premiere will be 6 p.m. Friday in the Sarzin Lecture Hall at the Language and Literature building at Gulf Coast State College in Panama City. Admission is $5. A book signing and meet-and-greet with the cast and crew will follow the 20-minute lm. Michael said the event will be “a lot of fun” with an actual red carpet entrance and “paparazzi” shooting the arrivals. He has partnered with The Public Eye in Panama City, which will screen the movie using a 5K projector for “as nice a theater experience as you can get,” he said. The movie will be released online “no later than” the premiere date, Michael said. “The series has been going for 17 or 18 years now, and a lot of people have journeyed with John for a while,” Michael said. “Most of them are not local, so it’s cool that they will get to see this as well.” Michael said the prequel novel was “unexpected” and grew out of his work on the short lm’s script. His wife, Dawn, suggested that he write a novel set in John’s formative years. “All throughout the six previous books, there are hints of John’s past and his experiences that helped make him who he is today. I intended to sprinkle that in as the series unfolded,” Michael said. “Now, this is the rst in a serieswithin-the-series, ‘The Atlanta Years.’” The movie grew out of a young actor’s request to “do something” together before he moved away for school. It’s the seventh short Michael has worked on, and “a quantum leap forward,” he said. “The whole process was really rewarding,” Michael said. “It took a lot of time and effort by a lot of people, and the technology has gotten to the point that you really can do so much that you couldn’t do before on a shoestring budget.” Michael credited all of the cast and crew, who pitched in to ll jobs or roles as needed. In particular, he mentioned Allen Walker (“one of the nest local actors we have”); Daphne Lewis (“who does so much with Kaleidoscope Theatre, and jumped in to do makeup and other things in addition to her role”); and Lou Columbus (“he shot it and helped so much more with his knowledge of lmmaking, a partner all the way through”). Michael was born in Tallahassee and raised in Wewahitchka, where much of the lm takes place. Like John Jordan, Michael moved to Atlanta for school and was a prison chaplain for a time. He said Jordan, as a character, has taken on more of his own traits as the series has progressed. “More and more, the character picks up your qualities,” Michael said. “The longer a series goes on, the more of you gets put into the character.” Jordan, who grew up in the Wewa/Panama City area, moves to Atlanta to attend college and become a police of cer. But it is during a visit there at age 12 that he rst comes face-to-face with the man who would become known as the Atlanta child murderer. “He got so captivated by the case, and so bothered by how it all went down, that it set him on a path,” Michael said. “As an adult, he had a spiritual awakening, trying to reconcile being an investigator and a cleric at the same time.” Writing, filmmaking in the blood ‘SPILLED BLOOD’ What: Short film “red carpet” premiere event, plus book signing for “Innocent Blood” novel When: 6 p.m. Friday Where: Sarzin Hall, inside the Language and Literature building at Gulf Coast State College, 5230 W.

By JAN WADDY 747-5072 | @JanWaddy1 LYNN HAVEN — I have found a new place for fried cat sh — and mullet. Boon Docks Restaurant, a West Bay landmark on the Intercoastal Waterway, now has a second location in the Lynn Haven Shopping Center by Winn-Dixie. The Lynn Haven restaurant at 1800 S. State 77 opened Nov. 11, Veterans’ Day, but the original location already has a following since opening in June 1998. Owner Hilary Head has tried to recreate the character of Boon Docks in its new space, where customers are greeted with an oyster shell chandelier by the wooden outhouse. Head Chef Kenny Hayes, who has been with Boon Docks since 2001, is preparing the same dishes Boon Docks has become known for — and adding a couple more. “If people love Boon Docks’ food they don’t mind we’re not by the water. It’s the same menu, but we only do the fresh mullet here,” said manager Ashley Page, who has been with Boon Docks for 11 years. “Kenny’s Shrimp Burger is topped with popcorn shrimp on a burger bun, grilled or fried.” Just after the lunch crowd left Wednesday, Hayes was headed out, too — to pick up more mullet from Buddy Gandy. “We had so many sold today, we have to get more for tonight. It will be fresh, and it makes such a big difference with mullet,” Page said. “Ours is very good, nice and crispy.” Buddy Gandy not only supplies the mullet, but has supplied most of the black and white photos that now hang on the walls, including one of his sons as children with a Goliath Grouper. “The grouper and shrimp are our most popular items. It’s a real Black Grouper or Red Grouper,” Page said. “We sell Black Angus Steak, too.

They’re Gulf shrimp, 21/25 a pound, medium to large shrimp.” The mullet and catsh are the only fried foods at Boon Docks that get dipped in the cornmeal mix. The other fried seafood gets “more of a dusting” of breading. Grilled shrimp come topped with bell peppers, onions and Cajun spices, but since they are made to order, you can ask them to leave the toppings off. “I think the onions and peppers make it more avorful,” Page said. During a recent trip for lunch, my husband ordered the fried shrimp, which comes with six large shrimp, that look more boiled than fried. “We do the light breader; that’s where we are unique,” Page said. “We also do a blend of Cajun spices, not spicy, that’s 16 different spices Hilary mixes together.” They had a lot of avor, but I preferred my salty fried catsh. Though I gave the lets a little squeeze of lemon, they didn’t need any tartar, and went well with my sides of creamy cheese grits, and seasoned green beans and hush puppies. Our meals, $11.99 each, were served on Fiesta dinnerware — splashes of color on the antique table. Wednesday’s lunch included fried mullet for $8.99 or Shrimp and Corn Bisque with grilled cheese for $7.99, along with a variety of other seafood and sandwiches, including the popular hand pattied Certied Angus Boon Burger. Though Boon Docks in Lynn Haven also is open for dinner, how late “just depends on the crowd,” Page explained. “If you’re coming after 8 or 8:30, just give us a call rst.” Left: Boon Docks’ Cole Slaw, served on Fiesta dinnerware, is slightly sweet.
