The commission directed Chairman Guy Tunnell to contact the base by letter to request more details about the base’s waterway security plan in the wake of complaints from residents that the base recently overstepped its authority. The Friends of Shell Island, a group formed in 2013 to oppose Tyndall Air Force Base’s water way security plan, has heard from boaters of at least four incidents in which base security forces operated in off-base water near Shell Island and detained a civilian even before the controversial plan is in place, according to the group. Stephanie Somerset, who leads Friends of Shell Island, filed a com plaint alleging base security ille gally detained a fisherman last fall. Tyndall officials verified there was an incident, but would not release details. Commissioner Mike Thomas said at Tuesday’s County Com mission meeting that a new com mittee of county and base officials might want to take up the issue. The commission has approved a charter outlining a new community partnership between Tyndall and Bay County on issues of mutual interest. The steering committee will include the chairman of the Bay County Commission, chairman of the Bay County Chamber of Commerce Military Affairs Committee, chairman of the Bay Defense Alliance and the commander of the 325th Fighter Wing at the base. D id the NSA plant spyware in computers around world? SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Did the National Security Agency plant spyware deep in the hard drives of thousands of computers used by foreign governments, banks and other surveillance targets around the world? A new report from Russian cybersecurity firm Kaspersky Lab said its researchers identified a new family of malicious programs or worms that infected computers in multiple countries, primarily overseas. Targets appeared to be specifically selected and included military, Islamic activists, energy companies and other businesses, as well as government personnel. Without naming the United States as the source of the malware, the report said one of the programs has elements in common with the so-called Stuxnet worm, which the New York Times and Washington Post have said was developed by the U.S. and Israeli governments to disrupt Iranian nuclear facilities. Based on their similarities, the creators of both programs “are either the same or working closely together,” Kaspersky’s report said. The malware was not designed for financial gain but to collect information through “pure cyberespionage,” added Kaspersky researcher Vitaly Kamluk. In its report, the firm said the malware was extremely sophisticated and “expensive to develop.” NSA spokeswoman Vanee Vines declined comment Tuesday, but cited a 2014 presidential directive that instructed U.S. intelligence agencies to respect Americans’ privacy while continuing to conduct overseas operations necessary to guard against terrorism or other threats. Kaspersky researchers said some of the spyware was designed to burrow Commissioners request more details about Tyndall plan SEE T YND ALL PL AN | A7 SEE SPYW ARE | A7 LOCA L | B3 Cape San Blas Lighthouse attracting loads of visitors in new Port St. Joe location SPORTS Rutherford falls to Rickards in Region 1-5A seminals C 1 PICCOLO NAMED TOP TEACHER PATTI BLAKE | The News Herald Superintendent Bill Husfelt congratulates Master Sgt.

By COLLIN BREAUX 747-5081 | @ P CNHCollinB CollinB@pcnh.com PANAMA CITY BEACH — Beth Piccolo was named Bay District Schools 2015 Teacher of the Year at a ceremony Tuesday night at Wyndham Bay Point. Piccolo is the Marine Corps Junior ROTC teacher at Mosley High School. She has been teaching for four years, all in Bay County, and this was her first time as a nominee. She was one of five finalists from an initial field of 38 teachers. As the winner, Piccolo received several prizes, including $250 from the Bay Education Foundation and $500 from the Panhandle Educators Federal Credit Union. “I only thought I’d win this if it were a physical challenge,” Piccolo said. Piccolo thanked her peers at Mosley, among others. Bay County is a patriotic community that wants a Junior ROTC program, she said. Mosley Principal Sandy Harrison, in a letter of recommendation for Piccolo as Teacher of the Year, said she had “earned the respect and admiration of both her students and her peers.” Harrison added that Piccolo improved the Junior ROTC program in her first year at the school. Piccolo ensured female cadets who don’t have a dress for the Marine Corps ball or proms got a dress, Harrison said. C.E.

U.S. District Judge Andrew Hanen’s decision late Monday puts on hold Obama’s orders that could spare from deportation as many as 5 million people who are in the U.S. illegally. Hanen wrote in a memoran dum accompanying his order that the lawsuit should go forward. Without a preliminary injunction, he said, the states would “suffer irreparable harm in this case.” “The genie would be impossi ble to put back into the bottle,” he wrote, adding that he agreed that legalizing the presence of millions of people is a “virtually irrevers ible” action. In a statement early Tuesday, the White House defended the executive orders issued in Novem ber as within the president’s legal authority, saying the U.S. Supreme Court and Congress have said federal officials can establish pri orities in enforcing immigration laws. The White House said the U.S. Department of Justice will file an appeal, which will be heard by the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in New Orleans. U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder said the Justice Depart ment was reviewing the ruling and was confident the matter ultimately would be taken up by a higher court, possibly the U.S. Supreme Court. “We have to look at this decision for what it is: It is a decision by one federal district court judge,” Holder said. The first of Obama’s orders — to expand a program that protects young immigrants from deporta tion if they were brought to the U.S. illegally as children — was set to start taking effect Wednesday. The other major part of Obama’s order, which extends deportation protections to parents of U.S. cit izens and permanent residents who have been in the country for some years, was not expected to begin until May 19. Joaquin Guerra, political direc tor of Texas Organizing Project, called the ruling a “temporary setback.” “We will continue getting immi grants ready to apply for admin istrative relief,” he said. The nonprofit says it promotes social and economic equality for lowto moderate-income Texans. The coalition of states, led by Texas and made up of mostly con servative states in the South and Midwest, argues that Obama has violated the “Take Care Clause” of the U.S. Constitution, which they say limits the scope of presi dential power, and that his execu tive actions would be difficult to undo once immigrants started to apply for deferred action. They also say Obama’s order would force increased investment in law enforcement, health care and education. White House vows appeal of immigration ruling The Associated Press BOSTON Prosecutors: Don’t move bombing case Prosecutors have urged a federal appeals court to reject a bid to move the trial of Boston Marathon bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev out of Massachusetts. In a filing Tuesday with the 1st U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, prosecutors noted the judge already has qualified 54 people to serve as jurors. They said of those, 63 percent indicated they have not formed an opinion that Tsarnaev is guilty and 37 percent indicated they could set aside their opinions and be impartial. Tsarnaev’s lawyers said he cannot receive a fair trial in Massachusetts because too many people believe he’s guilty and have personal connections to the marathon or bombing. WENATCHEE, Wash. 2 climbers injured in 800-foot slide Authorities said two climbers slid 800 feet or more down Mount Stuart in Washington state when one slipped and the anchor points for both came loose as they tried to reach the top of the 9,415-foot peak. The two came to rest on a glacier Monday. Rescuers responded to an emergency beacon, and a helicopter picked up the two and flew them to Central Washington Hospital in Wenatchee. The Chelan County sheriff’s office said a 28-year-old Seattle man suffered a broken leg and a 29-year-old Bainbridge Island man suffered head and neck injuries. Nation BRIEFS World BRIEFS The Associated Press PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti Carnival accident kills at least 16 At least 16 people were killed early Tuesday in the Haitian capital after a man on top of a musical group’s Carnival float was shocked by high-voltage wires above the street, setting off a panic in which dozens of people were trampled, officials said. The accident occurred as thousands of people filled the streets of downtown Port-au-Prince for the raucous annual celebration. Video from the scene showed sparks coursing from the wire after a singer from the Haitian hip-hop group Barikad Crew was jolted by the overhead power line as the float passed beneath it. The cable appeared to have shocked several others as well. BEIRUT Syrian troops capture villages near Aleppo Syrian government forces backed by Lebanese Hezbollah fighters captured several villages near Aleppo in heavy fighting Tuesday that left more than 100 people dead on both sides, bringing them closer to their goal of besieging rebel-held neighborhoods in the country’s largest city, activists said. The troops were able to cut off the highway linking Aleppo with the Turkish border, according to Aleppobased activist Amer Hassan and the Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights. Syria’s state news agency said troops seized control of six villages and killed “a large number of terrorists.” AP Derailed oil tanker train cars burn Monday near Mount Carbon, W.Va. MOUNT CARBON, W.Va. (AP) — Fires were still burning more than a day after an oil train carrying more than 3 million gallons of crude derailed in a snowstorm, shooting fireballs into the sky and leaking oil into a West Virginia waterway. Hundreds of families were evacuated and two water treat ment plants were temporarily shut down after 19 of the tanker cars left the tracks and caught fire, burning a nearby house down to its foundation. “There’s nothing there,” said Democratic U.S. Sen. Joe Manchin, who toured the scene alongside a Kanawha River tributary. “All you can see is a couple of blocks stick ing out of the ground. There’s some pickup trucks out front completely burned to the ground.” One person was treated for smoke inhalation, but no other inju ries were reported, according to the train company, CSX. The twoperson crew, an engineer and con ductor, walked away unharmed. “It was a little scary. It was like an atomic bomb went off,” said David McClung, who felt the heat at his home about a half-mile uphill. He said one of the explosions sent a fireball at least 300 feet into the air. Fire crews had little choice Tuesday but to let the tanks burn themselves out. Each carries up to 30,000 gallons of crude. The train was carrying volatile Bakken crude from North Dakota’s shale fields to an oil shipping depot in Yorktown, Va. It used model 1232 tank cars, which include safety upgrades voluntarily adopted by the industry four years ago, the Federal Railroad Administration confirmed. A series of ruptures and fires in recent derailments involving model 1232s has the National Transporta tion Safety Board questioning their safety as well, and the Department of Transportation has drafted new standards being reviewed by the White House budget office. Just last year, a similar accident happened along the same route in Lynchburg, Va. Oil train that derailed had safety upgrades Still burning POSSIBLE NEW RULES The oil train that exploded in West Virginia met the industry’s voluntary 2011 safety standards, but a growing number of accidents has the Obama administration considering tougher rules for tank cars. Draft regulations sent to the White House budget ofce for review are not public, but possible requirements considered by the Department of Transportation include a steel shell nine-sixteenths of an inch thick (compared to sevensixteenth in “legacy” cars), an outer jacket and a thermal layer in between them to prevent overheating; extra protection for top and bottom outlets; full shields in front and back; systems to prevent cars from rolling over; and electronically controlled brakes that could stop all cars in a formation at the same time rather than sequentially. Oil and rail industries said the brakes alone could cost up to $21 billion for minimal benets.

At a meeting of Republican donors who helped pay for 2012 GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney’s campaign, one wanted to know: How does the former Florida governor plan to distinguish himself from his brother, former President George W. Bush? “He said, ‘We are bound by religious faith and our family’s values, but have different interests, strategies and leadership styles,’ ” said Craig Duchossois, a Chicagobased investor and GOP donor who was at the meeting. Others who have attended similar private events with Bush in recent weeks, as he aggressively seeks to raise a pacesetting amount of money before formally launching a 2016 campaign, say Bush has told them the same. His overriding message, although not one yet offered with many specifics: I am my own candidate. “He dealt with that tough question like a champ,” said another donor at the meeting, Terry Graunke. “He said, ‘We may have the same principles and values, but everybody in our family is different.’ ” Part of Bush’s strength in the early days of the 2016 race undoubtedly comes from his family ties, including a robust fundraising network and connections inside the Republican Party built over generations — his father served as president, his grandfather as a member of the Senate. In public, Bush offers nothing but love and respect for his older brother, a figure who still divides Americans more than six years since leaving office — but less so now than upon his exit from the White House. In private, the younger Bush notes that they differ and see the world differently. “It’s an inter esting challenge for me,” Jeb Bush told an audi ence earlier month, offering a public glimpse into his thinking about how the legacy of his family might impact his own campaign. “If I have any degree of selfawareness, this would be the place where it might want to be applied,” he told the Detroit Economic Club, earning a chuckle. “If I was to go beyond the consideration of running, I would have to deal with this and turn this fact into an opportunity to share who I am, to connect on a human level with people.” At this point, few believe Bush isn’t running in 2016. Today, he will speak to the Chicago Council on Global Affairs to offer his views on the U.S. role in the world, and it’s hard to imagine questions about his brother’s guidance of the country after 9/11 and the subsequent invasions of Afghanistan and Iraq won’t come during the Q&A that will follow. “Gov. Bush seems to be a detailoriented person, a policy wonk highly involved in the details, and less of a gut-instinct player,” said Peter D. Feaver, a former special adviser at the National Security Council in the George W. Bush administration. “That would distinguish him from his brother.” Bush has broken with his brother before, although few times publicly, including during his time as governor, which overlapped with six years of George W. Bush’s administration. In 2003, for example, Jeb Bush publicly criticized the administration over its decision to return 12 suspected hijackers to Cuba. “Despite the good intentions of the administration to negotiate the safety of these folks, that is an oppressive regime, and given the environment in Cuba, it’s just not right,” he said at the time. Amid an unpopular war in Iraq and an economy in freefall, George W. Bush left office in January 2009 with 58 percent of Americans holding a negative view of him, according to polls conducted by NBC and The Wall Street Journal. That view has softened over time, with a NBC/Wall Street Journal poll conducted in September finding 37 percent of Americans with a positive view of the elder Bush brother, 38 percent with a negative view, and 24 percent neutral views.

Revelers in glitzy costumes filled the streets of New Orleans for the annual Fat Tuesday bash, opening a day of partying and parades. Fat Tuesday heats up chilly New Orleans NEW ORLEANS (AP) — Revelers bundled up in winter coats with the occasional glitzy costume filled the streets of New Orleans on Tuesday for the annual Mardi Gras bash, opening a day of partying, parades and goodnatured jostling for beads and trinkets tossed from passing floats. Retired clarinetist Pete Fountain rode a mini-float decked out as a streetcar as his Half-Fast Walking Club kicked off a day of parades on Fat Tuesday — historically the day when cooking fats would be used up before the austerities of Lent. The Rev. Byron Miller started Fountain’s group on its way with a prayer, invoking “the God of laughter and love” as marchers set out on a miles-long trek after early morning rain cleared out, leaving many buttoning up amid temperatures in the 30s and 40s early in the day. Celebrities and celebrity watchers also were around for Mardi Gras. The cast of the CBS crime drama “NCIS: New Orleans” got an early taste of the season on Monday, riding in the parade of Orpheus and tossing beads to revelers lining city streets before heading to an overnight ball. Other celebrities joining in this year’s revelry were comedian Ron White and country music star Dierks Bentley. Some got a jump on the day’s celebrations by donning tuxedoes and evening gowns for elegant balls lasting into the early hours Tuesday. Ordinary folks took to dressing up. Friends Alexandra Sergutin and Ashley Dornier of New Orleans said donning elegant gowns for the Carnival balls is one of their favorite Mardi Gras activities. “It feels good to be a part of that tradition. It really does. It touches your heart,” said Sergutin, draped in colorful beads. “You’re a part of something amazing and big.” Celebrations also were held throughout south Louisiana and in coastal Mississippi and Alabama, sharing the traditions brought by French Catholic colonists in the 18th century. In Louisiana’s swampy bayou parishes, costumed riders on horseback went farm to farm, collecting ingredients for a huge community gumbo. Tuesday’s main parades were Zulu and Rex, “king of Carnival,” who wears a golden crown and carries a golden scepter. Rex features some of the season’s most wildly fantastic floats. After Rex were two “truck parades” — hundreds of flatbed trailers topped by costumed riders, whether families, clubs or other social groups. After 8 feet of snow, Boston commutes are a nightmare BOSTON (AP) — Nearly 8 feet of snowfall this winter has paralyzed greater Boston’s transit system, infuriating commuters on and off the rails who might not see a return to normal for at least a month. Commuter, subway and Amtrak trains were delayed or canceled again Tuesday. Highways were jammed with extra cars as workers tried to avoid continued problems on the nation’s oldest transit system. Many commuters said the ride into work — whether by train, subway, car or bus — tested nerves with exasper atingly long waits, stinging cold and, yes, another light coating of new snow. “It’s been a terrible day,” said Brad Wachholz, following a two-and-a-half hour ride on a jam-packed commuter train from Southborough, a town about 20 miles west of Boston, to downtown’s South Station. “This has been the worst day by far. It makes no sense. I thought after the weekend and the holiday, they would have been able to make some progress. It’s infuriating. “It’s always been bad, you just accept that. But now it’s really come off the rails.” Steve Graham said he left by car from his home in Windham, N.H., at 6 a.m. in the hopes of beating some of the highway traffic into downtown Boston. He was wrong. “It was worse than I expected,” Graham said of the 40-mile drive that took about two hours. “The whole way, it was just a heavy volume of cars. It’s crazy. It’s Massachusetts school vacation week. People are supposed to be gone.”

The 237-acre site is owned by the city of Marianna, and is adjacent to the Marianna Municipal Airport, which offers two 5,000-foot runways and 214 developable acres. The Florida First Sites program was created in 2013 to assist communities with preparing land to bolster economic development efforts. Since the program’s inception, Gulf Power has certified five sites in Northwest Florida, with another five working toward certification. The city of Marianna and the Jackson County Board of County Commissioners partnered with Gulf Power to pay half of the certification fees for the site. “Attaining certification at the Marianna Airport Commerce Park demonstrates our focus to grow high quality jobs in our city,” said Marianna Mayor Rico Williams.

At the height of the Great Recession, Americans were paying down their personal debt. Now, borrowing levels are increasing again. Avoiding high debt levels isn’t complicated. You live below your means and eschew large loans, right? But what if you need capital to reach your financial goals? A business owner muses: “We need cash for marketing and expansion, so we can increase our revenues.” A homeowner dreams of improving his property with an addition. Indeed, sometimes it makes sense to borrow money. But economic conditions can change while you service your debt. Consider the story of Clint Murchison Jr. Murchison’s father was a legendary Texas wildcatter who specialized in purchasing oil rich land. Gushers were drilled on his west Texas leases, and he also piped natural gas from his wells to multiple municipalities. With real estate, construction and insurance enterprises he was at one time worth $1.25 billion. Murchison Jr. reportedly enjoyed a net worth of $250 million. He purchased the Dallas Cowboys football franchise and supervised the construction of Texas Stadium. Murchison Jr. was a significant spender and sometimes impetuous investor, but according to author Bryan Burrough (“Texas: The Big Rich”), what really torpedoed his fortune was borrowing, “always believing he could engineer a return higher than the interest rate soaring oil prices in the ’70s brought soaring inflation, and with it soaring interest rates — by 1977 as high as 18 or sometimes 20 percent a year . By 1977 aides were scrambling almost every month to scare up enough to pay the banks.” Murchison was forced to borrow money simply to meet the minimums on his existing debt. He sold his team for $65 million and the stadium lease for $25 million more, but still couldn’t satisfy his creditors’ claims. Eventually he lost his home, a 40,000-squarefoot north Dallas mansion set on 26 acres. At the time of his bankruptcy, his personal balance sheet indicated he had just over $4,000 to his name. Upon his death in 1987, the New York Times noted that Murchison’s “was one of the nation’s largest personal bankruptcy cases” and that “more than $500 million in liabilities have been filed against the Murchison estate . As deals fell through and development projects failed, the cash needed to sustain the payments on the large loans that he had personally guaranteed at high interest rates was not available.” Access to capital through loans often is a conduit for financial growth, but breakneck borrowing can bankrupt even great fortunes.

McDowell Arbor Outlook NEW YORK (AP) — U.S. stocks closed slightly higher Tuesday as investors continued to monitor talks between Greece and its creditors in hopes that a deal will be reached to keep the country from falling out of the eurozone. Investments typically considered less risky, such as bonds, gold and utilities stocks, declined. The Dow Jones industrial average rose 28.23 points, or 0.2 percent, to 18,047.58. The Standard & Poor’s 500 index added 3.35 points, or 0.2 percent, to 2,100.34 and the Nasdaq composite rose 5.43 points, or 0.1 percent, to 4,899.27. With Tuesday’s gains, the S&P 500 is at another record high. U.S. markets were closed Monday for Presidents Day. Stock indexes had been lower most of the day, but recovered their losses on reports that progress was being made between Greece and its creditors. Greece is looking to request an extension to its loan agreement, government officials said Tuesday. It’s an effort to reach a lastminute deal with the country’s European lenders and avoid the danger of a euro exit. After five years of punishing austerity, Greece wants to scrap its existing program in favor of a new one with easier terms. If no agreement is reached by the end of the month, investors expect that Greece may have little option but to default and stop using the euro currency. Most analysts expect a deal will be reached in time. “Greece’s new government wants more independence, but it doesn’t want that independence at all costs,” said Anastasia Amoroso, a global market strategist at JPMorgan Funds. “The extension is good news because it buys Greece and the eurozone time to reach a long-term resolution.” While the major stock indexes moved little Tuesday, investors made noticeable moves out of the tradition safe havens: bonds, gold and dividend-paying stocks such as utilities. The yield on the benchmark U.S. 10-year note jumped to 2.14 percent from 2.05 percent on Friday. Bond yields have been climbing sharply the past two weeks as investors become more confident the Federal Reserve will raise interest rates this year. Stocks inch up, bringing U.S. market back to record By VALERIE GARMAN 747-5076 | @valeriegarman vgarman@pcnh.com PANAMA CITY — If you have a business idea, this is your weekend. Beginning Friday, the Business Innovation Center (BIC) at Florida State University Panama City once again will host “Startup Weekend,” a global event aimed at providing entrepreneurs with the tools to see their ideas through to development. Pamela Kidwell, executive director of the BIC, said virtu ally all successful businesses begin with nothing more than an idea, the only requirement to participate in Startup Weekend. “The sticky note started with an idea; the Apple computer started with an idea. ... Every technology we have started with an idea,” Kidwell said. “There is not a shortage of ideas; there is a misunderstanding of what you do with it.” The event will kick off with a free session on pitching ideas at 6:30 p.m. Friday at the Gulf Coast State College in the Advanced Tech nology Center (ATC). Following the session, registered participants will each conduct a 90-second pitch for their ideas and encourage others to join their team. “You do a presentation on what that product could mean for the market,” said Kidwell, noting participants then will vote on the top ideas and form teams to execute those ideas. “You spend the rest of the weekend making that idea into a real product.” Startup Weekend drew about 40 participants last year, and one team still is in the process of developing their product today. The group, which came from the Orlando area, pitched a “Follow Me” smartphone application, to help friends following in a separate car with directions to the destination. The development process is one familiar to Travis Perry, a high school music teacher-turnedentrepreneur who appeared on the hit TV series “Shark Tank” in 2012. Perry, who struck a deal with Robert Herjavec for his guitar training product “Chord Buddy,” will share his story as the keynote speaker at the Startup Weekend event Friday. Perry originally developed the product to help his daughter stick with guitar lessons, and has since grown his company to reach more than $2 million in sales annually. “Anyone who is looking to start a business, anyone who has that entrepreneurial blood, really, really should attend this event,” Kidwell said.

And yet decoupling, a proposed law that would finally bring rationality to greyhound racing and the other forms of gambling that occur on greyhound race parks, can’t seem to make it through the Tallahassee mud. In 1931, Florida became the first state in the nation to legalize greyhound racing, and it remains the home of the sport with more tracks — 12 — than the rest of the country combined. For a time, greyhound racing competed with horse racing for prestige and attention from the public. Joe DiMaggio, Babe Ruth, Janet Leigh and Frank Sinatra all made appearances at dog tracks, and at one point, it was the sixth most popular sporting activity in the country, according to a report on the industry from Grey2K USA, a nonprofit group opposed to greyhound racing. However, the sport, as currently regulated, seems near the finish line. Ebro Greyhound Park lost $2.9 million on racing in the 2012 and 2013 fiscal year. Ebro’s profits — $2.05 million — came from its card room, which under state law it can keep open only in conjunction with greyhound racing. Ebro’s financial picture is mirrored at almost every track across the state and across the nation, greyhound racing experts say. In other words, the government is forcing a business to engage in an unprofitable activity as a smokescreen for a profitable one. So the races keep going even if no one is watching or gambling on them so the tracks can keep their card rooms open. It’s the perfect example of government micromanaging private industry. Track owners say if decoupling is passed, they will continue racing — the sport still has its fans — but they most likely will run far fewer races than they currently are forced to run. Some tracks might close altogether, which is an ongoing nationwide trend. Ebro wants to expand, and residents there passed a referendum in support of slots at the track, a referendum ignored by Tallahassee. Racing critics like Grey2K support the legislation because fewer races might mean fewer injuries and deaths for the dogs. They say in 2014, 193 greyhounds died in Florida as a result of racing injuries. They also argue that the dogs are kept in cages for most of their lives, injected with steroids and other drugs and at times cruelly discarded when they are of no more use to the dog breeders. However, it is not necessarily fair to paint the whole industry with one brush. Circuses, zoos and horse racing all have seen their share of cases where humans were inhumane to animals. But in all of these industries, it is more likely that the animals — which are valuable to their owners — are treated humanely and with the proper care. And greyhound racing officials have worked diligently to ensure the animals are taken care of, including creating and supporting greyhound adoption programs and banning individuals from the sport who are suspected of mistreating the dogs. Along with decoupling, everyone agrees Florida’s laws against animal cruelty should be strictly enforced at the zoo, the kennel and, yes, the dog track. Officials from Grey2K and the ASPCA are currently on a media tour in the hopes they can convince the public and the legislature to pass decoupling this year. A decoupling bill passed Florida’s Senate last year but was never heard in the House. Along with the entrenched interests against decoupling, any bill that deals with gambling often brings out progambling forces who hope to expand the activity in Florida. However, the legislature should handle decoupling as a stand-alone issue and resist the temptation to try and meddle with other forms of gambling. It’s that kind of thinking that created this mess. N ATE B EELER | The Columbus Dispatch In praise of mediocrity Our V I E W I am writing about a bill that I have received for an ambulance ride I took on May 16, 2014. I have Blue Cross Blue Shield of Florida insurance, but I’m being told that the county has chosen not to enter into a contract with BCBS, and therefore they are considered out-of-network. I have an issue with this, because Bay County EMS is the only ambulance service available in this area. Therefore, I am not afforded the opportunity of choosing an innetwork provider. I most certainly would have chosen to stay innetwork for financial reasons. I had just had surgery two days prior and had gone to physical therapy for the first time since the surgery. I had only been there long enough to fill out some paperwork and had literally only gone to the back to answer some questions before being hooked up to a TENS unit. It was at that time that my blood pressure plummeted and I passed out cold. They immediately called 911, and EMS personnel arrived on scene. As I began to come around, they concluded that there were no obvious signs as to why this occurred. The EMS personnel (medically trained, I presume) informed me that I should definitely go to the hospital and be checked out since I had just had surgery. They further explained that the blood pressure drop could be due to a blood clot. Now, I’m not medically trained, so I listened to the medical personnel and I took the ride. A 2-mile ride. I know that the county ambulances run up and down the roads all day long without transporting, which means gas, wear and tear, and manpower that has to be covered, and they bill no one. But God forbid you should actually have a medical emergency and EMS respond, because it won’t matter whether you’re insured or not, you’re going to get the shaft. As a citizen of Bay County, I find it discouraging that you treat people with so little decency. I trusted that I have insurance, and I trusted the medical staff which at this point I feel sold me a bill of goods. Perhaps all this is why Bay County reports that they have lost $7 million this year. D ANA H EBNER Lynn Haven That takes religion In the Wednesday, Feb. 11, Viewpoints page, Marvin Stukey criticized President Barack Obama’s Feb. 5 speech at the National Prayer Breakfast (“Obama’s ISIS comments were wrong”). His main point was the president’s warning to Americans not to get on their high horse in regard to the terrorism of ISIS and others who murder in the name of religion, reminding us of some of the atrocities perpetrated by Christians over the past 200 years. President Obama was not comparing one religion to another or keeping score of these crimes, but merely stating that in some cases, religion can be distorted to become an agent for evil. I would quote Steven Weinberg, a noted American physicist: With or without religion, you have good people doing good things and evil people doing evil things, but when good people do evil things, that takes religion!

R ICH & Y VONNE D E A NDRE California Insurance policy makes for costly ambulance ride Tim Thompson, Publisher Mike Cazalas, Editor S. Brady Calhoun, Editorial Page Editor 747-5075 | @sbradycalhoun bcalhoun@pcnh.com I rise today to speak in praise of an underappreciated attribute: mediocrity. Oh, I can hear the comments already: “Who better to do it?” “Finally, something you’re an expert on.” “You should only hope to achieve mediocrity!” But I will not be deterred. As kids, we are always told to admire those who are the best at anything and to strive to attain the highest level in whatever we do. But a flurry of scandals suggest the world would be better off if more people would settle for being adequate. Brian Williams was more than adequate at the only things required of him: looking good in a suit and reading the news without belching. Plenty of local anchors have enjoyed decades of minor celebrity and outsized pay with these capabilities alone. Williams had achieved national celebrity. But he was not content with being the star of the No. 1-rated TV newscast in America, or with someday retiring as a legend in the category of Walter Cronkite and David Brinkley. No, he had to break out of the sober-sided anchorman persona in hopes of becoming a rock star. It’s fairly easy to enthrall an audience with stories if you are not bound by the requirement that the stories be true. You’d certainly love hearing about the time I rappelled down Mt. Rushmore to rescue Taylor Swift from a grizzly bear and then amused her with my a cappella rendition of “I Knew You Were Trouble.” Kissing the Blarney stone is no crime if you’re an ordinary jamoke who spins his colorful anecdotes at the corner bar. But when your central function is giving people factual information about important events, fanciful reminiscing is bound to eventually become a serious liability. Williams had been in war zones, and when you have been in war zones, audiences may be mildly disappointed to hear about the time you dozed off in a Chinook helicopter and landed uneventfully. They are more likely to listen raptly if you tell them what it was like when your aircraft was hit by enemy rockets in a close brush with fiery death. I have made it my business whenever possible to stay a healthy distance from combat theaters — half a planet away is my sweet spot — so I can’t speak to how the terrors of war can distort memory. Williams, however, had no immediate trouble keeping his facts straight. It’s just that as the story got told over and over, it insisted on getting bigger, until it popped in his face. Gradual expansion also was the sin of the adults in charge of Chicago’s Jackie Robinson West Little League. They could have had a good squad made up of players residing within the league’s geographic boundaries. But good wasn’t good enough. They had the ingenious idea of adding chunks of neighboring territory to gain access to an even bigger pool of young stars. Ingenious, but illegal under the rules of Little League. If the organization were to ignore this sort of encroachment, pretty soon Missouri would become, for purposes of youth baseball, western Illinois or even north Texas. After winning the national tournament and advancing to the world championship game, the Jackie Robinson kids found themselves the object of local and national attention. But instead of being able to enjoy their on-the-field triumph, they have been stripped of their U.S. title. Instead of being able to grow up, and old, bragging about their youthful heroics, they will be dogged by an air of disrepute that was not their doing. All this happened because the people in charge weren’t satisfied with making the full use of the athletic talent available to them. Like Barry Bonds and Mark McGwire, they had to look for an illicit boost that would propel them from one level to the next and next. This is where a due respect for mediocrity would have come in handy. It’s nice to be excellent, superb or Greatest of All Time. But some people — most people — can give everything they have in developing every talent to the fullest and find the results are not the least bit special. There’s no disgrace in accepting your limits. Rejecting them is what gets you in trouble. That’s why we call them limits. Steve Chapman Syndicated columnist But God forbid you should actually have a medical emergency and EMS respond, because it won’t matter whether you’re insured or not, you’re going to get the shaft.

Thomas said he doesn’t like what he’s seen. “I’ve not seen anything that makes me feel warm and fuzzy about whatever their study is going to be,” he said. Thomas said open access of the water around the base is crucial for recreation and fishing uses. “We do live in a bad time, but this is carrying it way too far,” Thomas said. Commissioner George Gainer said Tyndall officials have assured the county that closing the water around the base would occur only during a heightened alert. “I think that maybe they’ve gotten away from that,” he said. Tunnell said everyone can understand restricting access to water around the base during a heightened terrorist threat, but added that “this idea of just (doing it) on a whim is problematic for me.” Base spokesman Lt. Chris BowyerMeeder said base officials would be happy to speak to commissioners about their concerns and the waterway security plan, which he pointed out is only in its draft phase. “We haven’t heard anything from them yet. I’m happy to give them a clarification,” he said. Bowyer-Meeder said he could not comment about the incident involving the fisherman who was detained by base police. He said the situation was “resolved.” Bowyer-Meeder said the base’s website outlines the specifics of the waterway security plan. “This is not intended to be a permanent restriction on anyone” using the water, he said. But Thomas said after the commission meeting that residents are concerned their access will be restricted. “To just all of the sudden shut it off when there is not a threat of any kind, to me, I think is crazy, and we need to do whatever we can do to stop that,” Thomas said. Military leaders quietly released their plan in the Federal Register in 2013. It would give the base authority to restrict civilian access to many of the area’s most popular boating destinations. The public backlash was swift, the plans were withdrawn and Tyndall officials promised to revisit the matter in a more transparent fashion. Later that year, the plan re-emerged with slight modifications based on feedback from the public. In a nod toward transparency, base officials held two open houses to discuss the plan and faced angry boaters who complained of being steamrolled by restrictions so vague they could be interpreted as giving Tyndall the authority to close waterways permanently without explanation. The proposal would give Tyndall authority to restrict access to several popular bayous, as well as anywhere within 500 feet of the shoreline along the base. SPYWARE from Page A1 into the essential software that comes pre-installed on a computer’s disk drive, known as firmware. Once there, it was difficult to detect and virtually impossible to remove, and it could gain access to vital codes, such as the keys to deciphering encrypted files. Kamluk said compromising firmware is a difficult technical challenge that likely requires knowledge of the manufacturer’s source code — normally a closely guarded secret. The report named several disk drive manufacturers whose products were compromised, including Seagate Technology, Western Digital Corp., Toshiba and IBM Corp. While some did not immediately respond to requests for comment, three companies said the report came as news to them. “We take such threats very seriously,” Western Digital spokesman Steve Shattuck said Tuesday, adding in a statement that the company is “in the process of reviewing the report from Kaspersky Labs.” Seagate Technology said it “has no specific knowledge of any allegations regarding third parties accessing our drives.” The company said in a statement it’s committed to security and takes steps to prevent tampering or “reverse engineering” of its products. Toshiba said it had no knowledge of the malware and declined further comment. While some of the malware was transmitted over the Internet, Kaspersky said one worm spread through infected USB thumb drives, allowing it to collect information from computers that are “air-gapped” or disconnected from the Internet. Air-gapping is a security practice used at nuclear plants and other sensitive facilities. Kaspersky also said it uncovered “classic spying methods” in which scientists who attended an international conference in Houston were later sent a CD of conference materials from the event’s sponsor. The sponsor apparently didn’t know that the disc also contained malware which spread into certain attendees’ computers, the researchers said. Kaspersky said it found signs the malware infected computers in more than 30 countries, with the heaviest concentrations in Iran, Russia, Pakistan, Afghanistan and China. There were relatively few targets in the U.S. and Britain, said Kamluk, who characterized them as individuals living or visiting in those countries rather than companies or institutions based there. Though it’s less well-known in the United States, Kaspersky is respected in the cybersecurity industry and its reports are generally viewed as reputable. While some critics have suggested the firm has close ties to Russian authorities, several experts said Tuesday that it’s plausible the United States is behind the malware identified in the report. COMMISSION APPROVALS In other action Tuesday, the County Commission: Approved returning to constitutional ofcers $62,210 in excess funds employees paid out scal 2012 for Blue Cross Blue Shield health plans. The Sheriff’s Ofce is not included. In 2011, commissioners returned $50,379 to the ofcers but set aside $154,057 of excess funds its employees had paid in health premiums for a possible health clinic for them. That still is being evaluated. This year, the commission is returning $62,210 to the constitutional ofcers, but will return $192,593 its employees paid into the health plan back into the general fund. Clerk of Court Bill Kinsaul said he plans to return the money to his employees by not billing them for health insurance up to the amount they are owed. Approved a plan to levy assessments on 44 property owners who had their dirt roads paved. The proposal calls for billing the residents of Alamo Street, Kirkwell Avenue, Syracuse Avenue, Marlboro Avenue, Sequoia Avenue and North Kirkwell Avenue for the $229,041 project. The bills would range from $1,207 for owners of a single lot up to $13,499 for owners of multiple lots. Approved amending a beach trash pickup contract with Coastal Parasail Inc. On Jan. 12, 2012, the commission awarded a contract for the company to pick up trash on the Beach until 2016. In November, the Tourist Development Council encouraged more trash runs on the Beach. The amended contract would pay the company a lower price for those runs, reducing compensation from $1,075 to $875 per run. Approved an agreement with the Florida Department of Transportation to build the Joan Avenue sidewalk from Front Beach Road to North Lagoon Drive on the Beach. The DOT is fully funding the $310,000 project. FROM THE FRONT Wednesday, February 18, 2015 | The News Herald | Page A7 T OP TEA CHER from Page A1 Piccolo is a “loyal, dedicated, intelligent individual of utmost integrity.” Delair rated Piccolo among the top 5 percent of Marine instructors in the region. According to Piccolo’s rsum, she increased annual scholarship funds for the Junior ROTC program by 40 percent in her four years there. She also performed more than 60 community outreach events annually. Piccolo is a retired Marine, having served from 1985 to 2008. During her time in the military, she said she received the Meritorious Service Medal and Global War On Terrorism Service Medal, among other distinctions. She also was chosen as Mosley’s Teacher of the Month in March 2013. The other finalists were Jeff Skipper of J.R. Arnold High School, Catherine Rutland of Rutherford High School, Kristen Samples of Merritt Brown Middle School and Jenny Cimato of Deer Point Elementary School. All nominees received cash and gifts from local businesses and organizations, including the Panhandle Educators Federal Credit Union, the Bay Education Foundation, Horace Mann Representative Wendy Varnum and the Association of Bay County Educators. Bay District Superintendent Bill Husfelt said teachers deal with things the general public doesn’t know about, and that they can be a bright spot for children. Judges for the event were 2014 Teacher of the Year Alison Beck, Naval Support Activity Panama City representative Lynda Brown, News Herald Editor Mike Cazalas, parent Joy Noble, Merritt Brown Middle School Principal Charlotte Marshall, retired principal Fred Goodwin and ABCE representative Cynthia Been. Piccolo will advance to the Florida Teacher of the Year competition. Holding her trophy, Piccolo said the Junior ROTC program was at Mosley because of the cadets, who are “awesome” when they are out in the community. Those students might defend the country against ISIS in the future, said Piccolo. “This is not mine. This is the team’s,” Piccolo said of her trophy and her student’s involvement in the award.

By JAN WADDY 747-5072 | @JanWaddy1 jwaddy@pcnh.com PANAMA CITY — As Valentine’s balloons and hearts still adorned the restaurant, Jin Jin 88 II owner Shou “Jenny” Li already was preparing for her next celebration — Chinese New Year. The new year falls on Feb. 19, beginning the Year of the Sheep in the Chinese zodiac. “Sheep is you have a girl, the girl will be kind of a little shy like a sheep,” said Jenny, who was born in 1984, the Year of the Rat. She moved from her hometown of Fuzhou in the Fujian province of China 15 years ago and has been using her family’s recipes at Jin Jin 88 II, 647 W. 23rd St., for the past four years. The front door of her Chinese restaurant and the walls inside are adorned with signs of Happy New Year, wishing prosperity to customers, family and friends. Although all of the restaurants in Panama City don’t close down for the holiday as they do in China, Jenny still makes a large traditional meal of Chinese cuisine for New Year’s Eve. “In China on New Year’s we would be closed and reopen on the fourth day. They are closed everywhere, so we have to make enough food for the family for whole week,” said Jenny, who admitted, “We kinda like American now, but we still make a lot of food for three days.” Jin Jin 88 II will still be open as usual, from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Wednesday and Thursday, New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day, but the family celebration will begin after the restaurant closes Wednesday night. “We will still be open, but we still celebrate, and the second day I will put on the music, a traditional Chinese New Year song to make it happier, peaceful,” said Jenny, “We will be eating very late at night on New Year’s Eve. For New Year’s, even the kids sleep in late. Chinese people, we like to buy new clothes for New Year’s Day, more rich and red color. I have family in New York City and family in China. I have to call everyone New Year’s and tell everyone Happy New Year. On New Year’s Day, we need to say ‘Gong Xi Fa Cai,’ ‘Happy New Year and prosperous New Year’ to everyone, even customers.” But one word will not be said that day. “We don’t need to say ‘four,’ ‘si,’; that means ‘death,’ so we don’t say that,” she explained. Chinese New Year Eve celebrations include large family-style meals on the eve of the holiday. Traditional dishes include steamed whole fish and fish balls. “Fish,” or “yu,” has the same sound as “abundance” in Mandarin. “We do the steamed whole fish and put on green onions and onion, put on soy sauce and eat like that,” Jenny said. “Tangerines would be lucky fruit. ‘Ji’ means lucky. For my family, we will have hot pan. We have lobster, crab meat, fish balls, vegetables.” She also will serve her family recipes for General Tso’s Chicken and Mongolian Beef, which also are on the restaurant’s menu. Every dish will have 10 servings, enough for her family and visiting relatives. “They drink red wine with it. Traditionally, we normally have 10 dishes. Ten is for perfect. General Tso’s is the most popular dish here and for our family. My son loves it,” said Jenny, mother to a 7-yearold boy and 5-year-old girl. “It’s a little spicy, but they are used to it.” General Tso’s Chicken and Mongolian Beef are noted as hot and spicy dishes on the Jin Jin 88 II menu. Both had a lot of flavor, but I only felt the heat with the beef. The chicken was crispy in the sweet (but not too sweet) sauce on a plate adorned with orange slices. “It’s good and beautiful,” Jenny added. Though I easily could have finished it, I knew my son, too, would like the General Tso’s Chicken. My 8-year-old son’s bite turned into a bowl, and then another. What he didn’t finish that night, he took for lunch the next day. Jenny said the beef and chicken dishes are both quick to make. “The Mongolian Beef takes about five minutes,” she said. If she was in China, Jenny also would be “frying 20 pounds of peanuts” and roasting a pig. “And we have to eat a lot of rice,” said Jenny, who serves Jasmine rice with her Chinese cuisine. It also is customary to give red envelopes filled with money to children and for a boss to give them to employees. The red color symbolizes good luck, and the amount is usually an even number from $2 into the hundreds. Jenny added, “We need to give to kids and employees a little amount of money, a red package to make more peaceful year, for everything be very happy.” General Tso’s Chicken 5 lbs. boneless, skinless chicken thighs, cut in chunks Flour Oil 3 tablespoons hoisin sauce 1 teaspoon garlic 3 tablespoons sugar 2 tablespoons rice vinegar 2 green onions, sliced 1/3 cup cornstarch Jasmine rice, for serving Make the sauce first. Mix the hoisin sauce, garlic, sugar and vinegar together, then put the sauce in the pan with the green onions and cornstarch. Dip chicken in flour and fry in hot oil until chicken is golden, about 10 minutes. Mix it in the pan with the sauce and serve on rice. Makes 10 servings.

That’s how I arrived in France for the first time. And that’s how I was introduced to Belgian endive. Madame Gabillet was hosting me for my college semester abroad and she welcomed me pretty much right off the plane into her chilly, dark home. Dinner was waiting, so we sat right down and rather silently (since I didn’t yet speak a word of French) began the meal. That’s when I saw a vegetable I didn’t recognize. Was it cabbage? No. But whatever it was, it was bathed in a luscious cream sauce with Gruyere bubbling on top. It was a fitting welcome to what would be a cold and rainy few months. I understood precious little of what my host family said to me that night, but I did catch the name of the tender, slightly bitter, delight that we ate — Belgian endive. Madame Gabillet loved Belgian endive (and luckily, as I discovered, so did I). She served it chopped and sauteed in sweet butter, or sliced and tossed raw in a mustardy vinaigrette, or — my favorite — baked in a white cream sauce with onions and cheese. Back in the U.S., I saw Belgian endive slowly make its way into supermarkets. These days you can find it pretty much all year. They look like a cross between an elongated oversized Brussels sprout and a very small head of compacted romaine lettuce, but more yellow. Both Belgian and regular endive are part of the chicory family and sport a slightly bitter flavor. Each Belgian endive has only 15 calories, but packs tons of fiber, vitamin C and calcium. And for something that sounds so exotically European, it’s downright inexpensive. So grab a few and try them in some of your favorite recipes that star other greens — raw in place of escarole, sauteed instead of cabbage or kale, simply grilled or roasted with olive oil, salt and pepper and squeeze of lemon. Or try my version of the dish that started it all — Madame Gabillet’s Belgian endive gratin. Belgian endive gratin Start to finish: 45 minutes (15 minutes active) Servings: 4 2 tablespoons butter 1/2 small yellow onion, finely chopped 3 cloves garlic, minced 1 teaspoon dried tarragon 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour 2 cups reduced-fat milk 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard Salt and ground black pepper 4 small to medium Belgian endives 3/4 cup shredded Gruyere cheese Heat the oven to 350 F. Coat a medium (9-by-9-inch) baking dish with cooking spray. In a medium saucepan over medium heat, melt the butter. Add the onion and cook until translucent, about 5 minutes. Add the garlic and tarragon, then cook until fragrant, another minute. Whisk in the flour and cook, stirring, for 2 minutes. Add the milk, whisking constantly. Cook over medium heat, stirring, until the sauce begins to thicken, about 6 minutes. Turn off the heat, stir in mustard, then season with salt and pepper. Set aside. Cut off the woody stems of the endive and slice them in half lengthwise. Season them with salt and pepper. Place the endive in the prepared baking dish. Pour the sauce over the endive halves. Cover with foil and bake for 15 minutes. Remove the foil, then sprinkle the cheese evenly over the top. Return to the oven for another 15 minutes, or until the endive is tender. If desired, increase heat to broil and broil the gratin until the cheese is bubbly and browned, about 1 minute. Be careful as the cheese will burn quickly. Let cool for a few minutes before serving.

Bay County water project requests pour in By JIM TURNER The News Herald TALLAHASSEE — Water-related projects totaling almost $1.2 bil lion have been proposed as state lawmakers decide how to carve up a pot of money that voters want for land and water conserva tion and management. The House Agriculture and Natural Resources Appropriations Subcom mittee has posted on its Web page a summary list of 475 requested water projects from across the state that would far sur pass anticipated first-year funding from a constitu tional amendment voters approved in November. The proposals range from $96.8 million for phase two of the Yankee Lake Surface Water Plant in Seminole County to $15,000 for the replacement of sewage flowmeters in Miami-Dade County. Other requested big-ticket items include $65 million for reclaimed water systems in Broward County; $53 million for a water-management proj ect along the Halifax River and Nova Canal basins in Volusia County; $50 million for wastewater improve ments in the Florida Keys; $20 million for regional Lighthouse attracting visitors in new location By TIM CROFT 227-7827 |@PSJ_Star tcroft@starfl.com PORT ST. JOE — Moving the Cape San Blas Lighthouse was only the beginning. The next phase is what will fill in the canvas around it. The lighthouse has proved quite the hit with visitors and locals alike since it was moved from Cape San Blas to George Core Park last year. From last September through Jan. 31, typically a relatively slow tourist period, more than 1,100 people climbed the tower. That was more than climbed it during its final summer on the Cape. The number of visitors will increase in spring, in part because three large groups will visit the lighthouse in March. A school group from Bay County and the U.S. Lighthouse Society are scheduled to pay visits. The school trip is being sparked by the class’s teacher, whose family once served as keepers at the Cape San Blas Lighthouse when it was on the Cape. The Lighthouse Society will take a coastal tour of North Florida and will visit the Cape San Blas Lighthouse. The third group will be Bike Florida, which will bring 800 to 900 bicyclists to Gulf County the last week of March and has booked tours of the lighthouse. “They are not coming just for the light house, but this is because of the greater awareness of the lighthouse and where it is,” said Charlotte Pierce of the St. Joseph Historical Society, which leases the light house from the city of Port St. Joe. “People are aware of it and want to come see it.” The city has submitted a proposal to A NEW CALLING Former Lynn Haven church being repurposed as commission meeting room Callaway weighs annexing 280 acres By BEN KLEINE 522-5114 | @BenKleinepcnh bkleine@pcnh.com CALLAWAY — The Planning Board on Tuesday recommended approval for annexation of 280 acres, a largescale comprehensive plan amendment and the zoning application for the Primrose Bay development. Primrose Bay would be a mixed-use develop ment in the former East Bay area along Primrose Lane. The plan includes 1,085 acres and about 2,000 residential units clustered along the highlands near the bay. “They put this together with the idea that it would be conceptual,” Callaway City Manager Michael Fuller said. The land-use amend ment and annexation were approved relatively easily. Fuller said annexa tion had zero drawbacks, but the zoning appli cation received more discussion. Board member David Griggs was concerned about the lack of detail in the plans submitted by U.S. Metropolitan land development through the Survey, Engineering and Landscape architect group Buchanan and Harper.

In another life, it is where the stained glass went, with a crucifix in front. City Manager Joel Schubert is reincarnating that building at 108 E. Ninth St. as the new Lynn Haven Commission meeting room. He hopes the renovations will be finished — including fresh carpeting and three large computer screens — by the sec ond meeting in March. Part of the design is a rollaway platform for the five commissioners and movable seating for 120 audience mem bers, clearing the floor and a stage area for a multipurpose room. Weddings, conferences and maybe a play or two could possibly produce some income for the city in rental fees. The renovations for the building the city has owned for about 10 years cost about $45,000. “We’ve taken care of what SEE LIGHTHOUSE | B5 SEE CALLAWAY | B4 Local & State Wednesday, February 18, 2015 | The News Herald | Page B3 SEE CHURCH | B6

Contact info@legacy.com State stays execution for killer of 4 TALLAHASSEE (AP) — The Florida Supreme Court on Tuesday stayed the execution of a man who killed his exwife, daughter and two others until the U.S. Supreme Court determines whether a sedative used in lethal injec tions is effective. The decision came nine days before Jerry Correll was scheduled to be executed for a 1985 quadruple murder in Orlando. It is also a response to the U.S. Supreme Court deci sion last month to put executions on hold in Oklahoma while it examines concerns raised about the use of midazolam as the first in a three-drug mix used in lethal injections. The state high court wrote in its 5-2 decision that Florida’s execution procedures are virtually identical to Oklahoma’s. “If use of midazolam as the first drug in a three-drug lethal injection protocol is determined to be cruel and unusual — and therefore unconsti tutional — then Florida’s precedent approving the use of midazolam and the current Florida three-drug protocol will be subject to serious doubt as to its continuing viability,” the court wrote. “Without a stay of execution in this case, Florida risks the unconstitutional execution of Correll, for which there is no remedy.” Correll, 59, went to the home of his former mother-in-law, Mary Lou Hines, in June 1985. He was convicted of killing Hines, his ex-wife Susan Correll, her sister Marybeth Jones and the former cou ple’s 5-year-old daughter. The three women were each stabbed at least 14 times, and the girl was stabbed at least 10. Prosecutors said bloody fin gerprints and palm prints, along with other physical evidence, linked Correll to the crime scene. The Florida Supreme Court has previously reviewed the use of mid azolam and found it to be effective at rendering the condemned unconscious before the second and third drugs are used to paralyze inmates and then stop their hearts. Opponents of the procedure say that midazolam doesn’t prevent inmates from suffering during an execution. Midazolam has been used in prob lematic executions in Arizona, Ohio and Oklahoma. Florida has used the drug in 11 executions with no apparent problems. Florida Justices Ricky Polston and Charles Candady said in the dissenting opinion that Florida’s circumstances are different than Oklahoma’s and that the Florida Supreme Court reviewed an exhaustive amount of material to deter mine that midazolam is constitutional. “Whatever the majority’s specula tion about how the Supreme Court may alter the law in the future, this Court should follow our precedent as it exists today,” they said in the dissent. 400-foot Orlando Eye set to open in May AP A 400-foot observation wheel in the heart of Orlando’s tourist district is under construction. The Florida Supreme Court has previously reviewed the use of midazolam and found it to be effective at rendering the condemned unconscious before the second and third drugs are used to paralyze inmates and then stop their hearts. JERRY C ORRELL yet to come. “This would be their Bible?” board member Bob Bell asked. Griggs asked about where roads and drainage ponds would be located. Resident Sarah Cooper was most concerned about drainage issues. Griggs also was disappointed the developer was not at the meeting. “I would like to see developer or engineer who put this together,” Griggs said. “That’s a negative situation.” Michael Harper showed up later and answered spe cific concerns. One was the language that the commer cial portion of the property would have private utilities. Harper said it is common for commercial properties to maintain utilities within their grounds. Another concern was apartments and a hotel. Harper said the hotel could be no larger than 150 rooms and the apartments would be part of the about 2,000 maximum residential units allowed on the property, including work/ live units where an apartment is over a shop. More specific questions than that would be left to the development order stage, when environmental and traf fic studies would be conducted to determine what was needed, Harper said. “You’re asking for the sky and later on you’re going to tell us what you’re going to do,” board member Don Newell said. All three measures — annexation, the land use amendment and zoning —will go before the City Com mission on March 10. CALLAWAY from Page B3 Senators support effort to cut ties between utility companies, regulators By JIM TURNER The News Service of Florida TALLAHASSEE — A measure intended to curb appearances of cozy ties between state regulators and elec tric utilities easily passed its first Sen ate test Tuesday, while the proposal’s primary target remained low key. The Senate Communications, Energy, and Public Utilities Com mittee gave unanimous support to the proposal (SB 288), which sponsor Jack Latvala, R-Clearwater, said puts “teeth” in the oversight of the Florida Public Service Commission. However, Latvala said the bill is the product of dissatisfaction with Duke Energy Florida. Latvala told committee members that while utilities in other parts of the state might have improved their services over the past few years, Duke Energy Florida, which serves 1.7 mil lion customers from Central Florida through parts of the Panhandle, has “has gotten worse.” “A number of you are fortunate to have areas that are served by utilities that have a better response to their consumers, that have lower rates, or municipal systems that don’t have the kind of issues that we have on the west coast of Florida,” Latvala said. “It’s probably hard to understand the number of emails, the public input that we get on this.” Duke spokesman Sterling Ivey said in an email after the meeting that the company is watching the issue. The annual legislative session starts March 3, and the House version of Latvala’s bill has not been heard in committees. “As I understand, the Senate ver sion has one more committee stop while the House bill is not yet off the ground,” Ivey wrote in an email. “Either way, we are far from seeing a final bill for the full House and Senate to consider. We are closely monitoring the legislation as it moves through the legislative process and will continue to follow the bill through several more committee hearings in both the House and Senate.” The measure, which is expected to have a tougher time in the House, takes aim at the amounts electric utilities can charge customers for deposits, seeks to assure that money collected for demand-side renewable energy be used for that purpose and would require members of the Pub lic Service Commission to complete ethics training similar to the training lawmakers receive. The bill also would prohibit utili ties from imposing higher charges for increased electricity use due solely to extended billing cycles. The billing item stems from an effort by Duke to redesign meterreading routes, which led to changes in billing cycles. ORLANDO (AP) — The 400-foot observation wheel in the heart of Orlando’s tourist district is opening in May. Merlin Entertainment on Tuesday announced that the Orlando Eye, along with two other attractions, will open to the public on May 4. However, visitors who sign up for the attraction’s newsletter get the chance to ride the wheel a few days before that. The Orlando Eye has 30 air-conditioned capsules that will provide panoramic views of Central Florida. Two other attrac tions, Madame Tussauds Orlando wax museum and an aquarium, also open at the same time. Prices start at $25 for adults for admission to one attraction.

LOCA L & STATE Duke Energy to provide power to the lighthouse complex. The power will be critical to create a museum in one of the two keepers’ quarters and to instal bathrooms and a light in the tower. Since early in the pro cess, Pierce said, regional federal officials have indi cated some type of light in the tower would be acceptable. However, the Coast Guard has said that light could not be the lens that was removed from the tower. That lens ultimately might be displayed in the museum. Local residents Jon Hooper and Tim Nelson have donated a solar light that operates in the tower now. What type of light even tually might be installed is unknown. “Until we have power over there and understand what we can and cannot do, that is undecided,” Pierce said. “From early on we were told it would be no problem to have a light up there.” Port St. Joe has sub mitted a grant application to the Florida Division of Historical Preservation to pay to upgrade the keepers’ quarters and oil shed. The $125,000 grant was ranked for full funding by the division, but still must be approved from a pot of $12 million by the Florida Legislature. The money would be used for electrical work, painting, woodwork, win dow replacement and the necessary work to renovate the keepers’ quarters to begin interior work. The Historical Society has discussed plans for the museum and the admis sion to climb the top tower. The cost will remain $5 for adults and $3 for children. Children must be at least 44 inches tall to make the climb. The decision to formal ize the cost has come in part because of the demand from groups to visit and climb the tower. The rev enue underwrites its opera tional costs. “I think we have very reasonable rates,” said Mary Yon with the Histori cal Society board.

The House panel is working to define the intent of the ballot initiative, which was known as Amendment 1 and was approved by 75 percent of voters. “There is going to be somebody, some where, that isn’t happy with the way the funds are distributed,” said subcommit tee Chairman Ben Albritton, R-Wauchula. “It’s going to happen, because there are so many people and so many perspectives.” The amendment, which directs 33 percent of the proceeds from a realestate tax to land and water projects, is expected to provide $757 million for the efforts during the fiscal year that starts July 1. Currently, about 20 percent of the annual real-estate documentary stamp revenue — $470.8 million in the 2014-2015 fiscal year — is divided up into different trust funds supporting environmental programs, according to Senate President Andy Gar diner, R-Orlando. Environmental groups have presented lawmakers with a potential funding outline for next year that would send $150 million to the Everglades and South Florida estuaries and another $150 million to the Florida For ever program for land acquisition, springs and trails. Also, $90 million would go for land management, $50 million for springs, $25 million for rural family lands and $20 million for beach management. The rest would cover debt service. “It was never the case that we thought that all the money should be used for land acquisition,” said Audubon Florida Execu tive Director Eric Draper, a lobbyist on environmental issues. Rep. Jim Boyd, R-Bradenton, said he continues to work on a proposal to create a new trust-fund structure to handle the Amendment 1 funding. “Any engineer will tell you that a design process that is flawed leads to a flawed structure,” Boyd said. “We don’t want to do that and neither do the people of Florida.” In the Senate, Environmental Preserva tion and Conservation Chairman Charlie Dean, R-Inverness, has filed a series of bills (SB 576, SB 578, SB 580, SB582, SB 584, and SB 586) to create a trust fund within the Department of Environmental Protection to handle money from the amendment. Dean’s committee is scheduled to review the trust-fund proposal today. The House and Senate are reviewing policy changes regarding management of the Everglades, Lake Okeechobee, the state’s natural springs and water resources. The House proposal (HB 7003) is viewed as more business-friendly than the Senate measure (SB 918), which was introduced last week.

OCALA Nurse charged with putting hot sauce in patients’ mouths A Central Florida woman has surrendered her nursing license after she was charged with placing hot sauce into the mouths of two sleeping dementia patients. Tracie Nellis was charged last summer with battery on a person age 65 or older and misdemeanor battery. She pleaded no contest to the battery charge and was sentenced to one year of probation. The state Board of Nursing ruled last week that Nellis could give up her license to avoid disciplinary proceedings. FORT LAUDERDALE Feds: Mail soaked with drugs was ‘hit’ with Florida inmates Postcards arriving at the Broward County Jail in Fort Lauderdale contained more than artistic cartoon drawings. Federal prosecutors said the postcards were laced with a hallucinogenic drug. They say inmates paid $10 for a tiny piece of card, which they put in their mouths to absorb the drug. Two inmates pleaded guilty last week to federal drug charges. 4517909 PUBLIC NOTICE NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN tha t the Gulf County Boar d of County Commissioners thr ough this pub lic notice of intent shall hold pub lic hearings on Thursda y, Fe bruary 19th at 9:00 a.m. during the Special Meeting held in the County Commissioner’ s meeting ro om in the Ro bert M.

The current commission room in City Hall, which can fit 80 people in cramped style, will be used to expand the front office space, making it eas ier for fewer clerks to han dle utility billing and other duties. The front office staff already has been downsized through attrition, Schubert said. With the goal of con solidating city operations under one roof, Schubert has moved building officials to the second floor of City Hall at the corner of Ohio Avenue and Ninth Street. They previously held an office next to the senior center; Schubert wants that space as a community meeting room. The second floor recently has been renovated at a cost of about $20,000. Joining them in City Hall will be Planning Direc tor Amanda Richard and Community Redevelop ment Agency Director Ben Janke, who now work in a city-owned house just south of the senior center. It would be possible to take care of a development order, CRA redevelopment and permit applications and pay a water bill without ven turing outside in the rain. The house where Rich ard and Janke work could be sold, although it has leaks and poor insulation. Schubert said that deci sion would be up to the commission. Schubert hopes the pending sale of two vacant pieces of city property — one commercial lot off State 77 and a residential lot at the corner of Fourth Street and Tennessee Ave nue — will pay for any addi tional improvements to city property. “And that could be a new business in town that adds jobs,” Schubert said.

THAT SCRAMBLED WORD GAME by David L. Hoyt and Jeff Knurek Unscramble these four Jumbles, one letter to each square, to form four ordinary words. JYEON PGARH PRUBAL TICILA 2015 Tribune Content Agency, LLC All Rights Reserved. Check out the new, free JUSTJUMBLE app A Different Deal Every Day $15 $30 50% Today is Ash Wednesday, Feb. 18, the 49th day of 2015. There are 316 days left in the year. Highlight in history On Feb. 18, 1885, Mark Twain’s “Adventures of Huckleberry Finn” was published in the U.S. for the first time (after already being published in Britain and Canada). On this date 1546 — Martin Luther, leader of the Protestant Reformation in Germany, died in Eisleben. 1564 — Artist Michelangelo Buonarroti died in Rome, just weeks before his 89th birthday. 1861 — Jefferson Davis was sworn in as provisional president of the Confederate States of America in Montgomery, Ala. 1913 — Mexican President Francisco I. Madero and Vice President Jose Maria Pino Suarez were arrested during a military coup. 1930 — Photographic evidence of Pluto (now designated a “dwarf planet”) was discovered by Clyde W. Tombaugh at Lowell Observatory in Flagstaff, Ariz. 1984 Italy and the Vatican signed an accord under which Roman Catholicism ceased to be the state religion of Italy. 2001 Auto racing star Dale Earnhardt Sr. died in a crash at the Daytona 500; he was 49. Thought for today “Temperament is temper that is too old to spank.” — Charlotte Greenwood, American actress-comedian (1893-1978) ARIES (March 21-April 19): Where’s your stash of mad cash? You know, the money you can spend on whatever you want, no guilt. You’ll find something worthy of purchase today. If you don’t have this kind of a stash, it’s a lucky time to start saving. TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Truthtelling time: You don’t mind inclement weather because it gives you an excuse to stay in. When the weather is fine, you don’t have the excuse, and you’ll have to create one. You just really want to stay in. GEMINI (May 21-June 21): There’s something you want to know, and you might go so far as to snoop to figure it out. CANCER (June 22-July 22): You’ll debate staying in or going out. This probably pertains to the weekend, but you have to make the decision now because your plans won’t come together if you wait. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Being cool won’t necessarily make you happy. Also, if you know better, smiling and nodding won’t work. Dare to be uncool, and don’t go along with things you know aren’t quite right. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Having your work cut out for you is actually a good thing when you think about it . LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23): There was once a popular vaudeville routine involving three comedians in which the comedian who got the punchline also got a banana. You’re top banana today, getting all the laughs. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21): It’s time to face the fact that you have real needs that are not being met. A breathtaking moment is the main feature of the day. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Sometimes it feels like you’re being forced to act like you’re having fun. Roll with it, and then don’t be surprised when the act turns into actual fun and lots of it. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Your habits will define you, at least in the eyes of others. This is the reason you try so hard today to change one of them, and if you keep trying daily for the rest of February, you’ll succeed. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): You don’t mind taking on other people’s perspective as a way of finding out where they are coming from. Just be sure to give that perspective back after you try it on, because your own perspective will serve you much better. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): According to one song, sleeping eyes never lie. Last night’s dreams had some rather interesting truths hidden inside them. Bad chemistry between preschoolers spoils play dates DEAR AMY: A good friend of mine from college has a preschool-age daughter, the same age as mine. I love seeing my friend, but our daughters do not get along. Neither girl can share with the other, and my friend’s daughter is a bit too aggressive for my daughter. They are usually good in “neutral” spaces, like parks or another friend’s house, but not good with each other in their own homes. I am constantly getting invites from my friend to get together, but lately I’ve been making up excuses to decline. I feel bad not seeing them, but the play dates are just not fun for anyone. I don’t want to force my daughter into a situation that upsets her. I would try to make plans with my friend alone, but I have an infant at home, which makes it difficult to get alone time with friends. How can I tell my friend the truth without hurting her feelings? Any suggestions on how I can improve the relationship between my daughter and my friend’s daughter? DUELING DAUGHTERS DEAR DUELING: Rather than make excuses, you should talk to your friend about the dynamic between your children and put your heads together to see if you can come up with remedies. Some kids — like some adults — just don’t have great chemistry. The cause can be everything from basic temperament to relative physical size, or something as simple as their nap schedules (or the stress of a new baby at home). Tell your friend you’re feeling a little overwhelmed. Acknowledge, “Sometimes it’s frustrating because, although I really want to see you, it is tough on me when the girls don’t get along. Can you think of ways we can make it better for them?” This dynamic presents an opportunity for both moms to prompt the children toward more pro-social behavior — and to recognize the signs when the girls have had enough of each other. DEAR AMY: I have a large family and we celebrate family birthdays at a monthly get-together with a potluck dinner. The dinner is always held at my house, and I usually furnish the entree. One granddaughter and her husband never contribute anything and never bring birthday cards for the honored family members. I have specifically asked her to bring something, and I made it easy by suggesting something simple like a Jell-O salad — but still, they bring nothing. Others are beginning to complain. Should I tell her that others are wondering why she never contributes to the meal? WONDERING GRAMMA DEAR GRAMMA: You have already instructed this couple on the particulars of a “potluck.” Now, instead of telling them that other family members are wondering about them, you should ask: “Why don’t you two ever bring something to share at the family dinner?” After you ask this very simple question, you should wait for their answer. Just wait. If they don’t have an acceptable response, you can ask a second question: “Do you understand that it is an important part of our family tradition that you find a way to contribute to the meal and also bring a card? I really expect you to do this.” DEAR AMY: I read with interest the letter from “Strapped Parents,” who had contributed to two of their kids’ weddings, but after lending one child a substantial sum they didn’t have money left for the third child. READER DEAR READER: I hope you agree with my suggestion that the son receiving the substantial loan should repay, in part in order to help finance the third’s nuptials.

AP ENTERTAINMENT Briefs LOS ANGELES ‘Modern Family’ to air episode that takes place only online How to keep the “modern” in “Modern Family” in its sixth season? Create an episode that plays out completely on a computer and in the realm of social media. That’s what’s in store Feb. 25 on the ABC comedy’s “Connection Lost,” a half-hour that revolves around Claire Dunphy’s (Julie Bowen) frantic effort to locate daughter Haley (Sarah Hyland) after they squabble. Other than a few scenes shot with the MacBook Pro, the episode was captured entirely with iPhone 6s and iPads, series co-creator and executive producer Steve Levitan said. “I had emails open, some websites... then my daughter showed up” on FaceTime, Levitan said. “I could not only see her, but I could see me, and there was something going on behind me, my wife or somebody.” “I realized on that screen, you could tell so much about my life,” he said. It occurred to him that format would be fitting for “Modern Family,” he told reporters after a sneak peek at the episode.

Sports PANAMA CITY NEWS HERALD Section C Facebook: tinyurl.com/NHSports Twitter: @NH_Sports www.newsherald.com/sports WEDNESDAY February 18, 2015 Larson revved to become NASCAR’s new superstar DAYTONA BEACH (AP) — As Jeff Gordon winds down his long career, the kid who grew up idoliz ing him is just getting started. Kyle Larson is ready to become NASCAR’s next superstar. His sophomore season in the Sprint Cup Series begins Sunday with the Daytona 500 and there are high expectations for Larson to have a breakout year. He was decent last season dur ing his run toward rookie of the year honors, but Larson is ready for more. On his list of goals for the year is winning his first Sprint Cup race and making the Chase for the championship. “Last year, nobody had any expectations for me other than fail ing,” Larson said. “So the expecta tions are different this year. A little bit more pressure. I think we can run up front every week, hopefully, and be competitive and try and get a couple of wins.” The expectation of failure is a bit of an exaggeration by Larson, who has skyrocketed from sprint cars to NASCAR’s top series in just three years. His first full season in stock cars was in 2013 and many believed team owner Chip Ganassi was rushing Larson when he promoted him to Cup last season. Nobody inside the Ganassi organization felt that way. Chris Heroy, who worked with Jimmie Johnson, Jeff Gordon, Dale Earnhardt Jr. and Mark Martin at Hendrick Motorsports, knew he was being paired with a rare tal ent when he moved to Ganassi to become Larson’s crew chief. “I saw Jimmie in his prime, win ning all those championships, and I’d put Kyle right there,” Heroy said of the six-time Cup champion. “Kyle is a generational talent.” BO YS REGION 1-1A SEMIFINALS BO YS REGION 1-5A SEMIFINALS RAIDERS 61, RAMS 52 Home debut: GC softball’s long road trip finally ends By PAT McCANN 747-5068 | Twitter: @patmccann pmccann@pcnh.com PANAMA CITY — The most notable aspect of the 2015 Gulf Coast softball team might not be its 8-10 record. Quite possibly, it’s that after four road trips to begin the season the Lady Commodores finally make their home debut today in a doubleheader against LB Wallace. The game times at Joe Tom King Field have been moved up to 2 and 4 p.m. to hopefully escape the chilly weather that has invaded this week. Gulf Coast swept LB Wallace during one of its previous road swings. First-year coach Beth Wade continues to shuffle a lineup that was shorthanded to begin the season. The Lady Commodores did get center fielder Kayla Fields back for their six games in the FPU Classic last weekend in Marianna. Fields responded with nine hits and five stolen bases while scoring nine runs. Wade was awaiting word on Tuesday whether or not starting shortstop Amber Dozier would be cleared for her first action this season. Dozier has missed all 18 games thus far while recovering from mononucleosis. “Based off the fall, we didn’t expect to have all these injuries and sicknesses so it’s been a bit of a struggle,” Wade said. “With our starting shortstop out we’ve shuffled people around. Sometimes it works out, sometimes it doesn’t.” Where the Lady Commodores have shown some merit is at the plate. “We’re swinging it well,” Wade said. “Keala Cordeiro (.508 average, 17 RBIs) and Alayna Weiss (.407, 15), those two and Taylor Campbell (.373, 20) is leading us in extra-base hits. Kinsley Faulkenberry (.375) is hitting well.” Cordeiro and Weiss have been mainstays in the lineup and of Campbell’s 22 hits six have been doubles and three home runs. Eloise Tribolet his hitting .350 with five steals and pitcher Alison Mitts is hitting .343. That aside, the most Gulf Coast basketball hosts NWF State tonight C2 INSIDE SEE S OFTB ALL | C2 The News Herald TALLAHASSEE — Rutherford fell behind early and never could erase its deficit as Rick ards defeated the Rams 61-52 on Tuesday in their Region 1-5A boys basket ball semifinal. The outcome reversed last year’s semifinal won 39-35 by Rutherford en route to the state semifinals. The Rams, 24-4, saw their 18-game winning streak end as they were attempting to gain their fifth region finals in the past six years. The Raiders, 18-12, will host Baker County Saturday night for the Region 1-5A title. Baker County riddled Palatka 77-45 on Tuesday. Rutherford trailed 29-20 at halftime and couldn’t get closer than three points, that with 4 minutes remaining. “We dug an early hole, then couldn’t get any stops,” Rutherford coach Rhondie Ross said. Gabe Steele paced the Rams with 20 points and Josh Wade had 14. Rickards was led by diminutive guard Javon Wooten who had 16 points, including 8 of 9 free throws when Rutherford was forced to foul in the closing minutes. Guard Maurice Howard had 12. Despite the defeat, Ross was able to look back on another outstanding season at the Springfield school. “I’m very proud of my group of seniors, they had great careers at Ruther ford,” Ross said. “This is the first time we went undefeated at home. We won18 straight, won the county academic award. “This is a great group of kids. Right now I know they’re hurt ing, but they should hold their heads high.” Rickards is attempting to reach the state semifinals in Lakeland for the first time since winning back-to-back state titles in 2010 and 2011.

SPORT S Page C2 | The News Herald | Wednesday, February 18, 2015 By DUSTIN KENT 747-5065 | @PCNHDustinKent dkent@pcnh.com PANAMA CITY — Facing the prospect of elimination from the postseason race, the Lady Com modores came up with their best road performance of the season Saturday. To move one step closer to the state tournament in Ocala, they’ll need to bring that kind of effort back home tonight when they host No. 5 Northwest Florida State (23-2 overall, 8-2 in the Panhandle Conference). The women’s game tips at 5:30 p.m. followed by the men’s game at 7:30 p.m. Gulf Coast (17-8, 4-6) earned an 86-77 victory at TCC on Saturday in a must-win situation, with Kris tina King leading the way with 28 points and 14 rebounds. The Lady Commodores were able to pull even in the loss col umn with third-place TCC. With the Eagles (20-10, 5-7) falling to Chipola 77-42 on Tuesday, Gulf Coast now controls its destiny. It can get to the state tourna ment outright by winning tonight and on Saturday at last-place Pen sacola State. Or it can qualify by splitting its final conference games and win ning a one-game playoff with Tal lahassee should the teams finish with the same conference record. That game would be played 6:30 p.m. Tuesday at Chipola. However it plays out, Gulf Coast coach Roonie Scovel said Monday that she’s just happy her team still has hope. “Obviously, winning that one (over TCC) gave us a little hope for life and put us back in the mix,” Scovel said. “We just played well. We’ve been a little inconsistent this year. We’ve shown some very good play at times, just not enough for a 40-minute ballgame for most of conference play. “That was a huge win for us against a very talented and ath letic team. Both teams played extremely hard and we were for tunate to come out on top.” Up next is a Lady Raiders’ squad that has been among the very best in the country all sea son, losing only twice: 64-59 at Tal lahassee on Jan. 3 and 64-62 at Chipola on Jan. 31. The Lady Commodores had an opportunity to deal NWFS a third loss Jan. 14 in Panama City, but a last-second tip-in by Tyshara Fleming sent the game into over time where the Lady Raiders pre vailed 96-92. The Feb. 4 rematch in Nicev ille wasn’t nearly as competitive, with NWFS winning 79-57 in a game after which Scovel ripped her team’s effort and focus. “The first game I thought we just kind of gave away by not tak ing care of business on the block out at the end,” she said. “The second game, we made a decision to throw that one in the trash and not look back. “We didn’t even show up for that one. I’m not sure we even got on the bus. We made no effort from the get-go and obviously didn’t give much effort to even get mentally ready to play that game.” Scovel said that the key in the third matchup would be consis tent team defense to try to contain the Lady Raiders’ many offensive weapons, but she wouldn’t hazard a guess at which Gulf Coast team will show up tonight: the one that took NWFS to overtime, or the one that lost by 22. “If I had the answer to that we might not be in the predicament we’re in,” Scovel said. “If I understood our mindset a little better, we’d be better off. That’s where I have to do a better job as a coach, trying to figure out the psychology of this team.” The Gulf Coast men (18-9, 5-5) also face a monumental challenge tonight against the No. 3 Raiders (25-1, 9-1), who already have clinched the confer ence title but will have plenty of motivation against the team that gave them their only loss. Gulf Coast stunned NWFS 88-86 Feb. 4 in Niceville, a win that gave the Commodores four victo ries in a row and vaulted them into sole possession of second place in the Panhandle standings. The Commodores have stum bled since then, losing at home 59-51 to last-place Chipola and giving up a 15-point halftime lead Saturday in a 74-70 road loss at TCC. With Pensacola State (17-11, 6-5) losing to NWFS on Saturday, Gulf Coast remains alive for the state tournament race with two games to play. Even with a loss to the Raiders, it can force a onegame playoff with the Pirates by winning Saturday in Pensacola. Of course, the Commodores could take second place outright by winning their last two games, but Gulf Coast coach Jay Powell said he hasn’t spent much time going over playoff scenarios with his players. Instead, he’s trying to get them to develop a tournament mindset to finish out the regular season. “When I came into practice (Monday) I told the men that, for some teams, the tournament is a couple of weeks away, but for us it’s tournament time right now,” Powell said. “All the nonsense, the distractions, all that stuff has to go away. We have to be totally focused to do what we have to do to win the next game.” To do that, the Commodores will have to snap out of the funk that has resulted in back-to-back losses to teams with a combined 6-15 conference record. Powell said his players seem to be handling the adversity well, but he has tried to simplify their focus for the final two games. “We want to get the win (tonight), but I don’t want the men to focus just on winning or losing. The focus has to be on the details of how you play each pos session the right way for us to get back on track,” Powell said. “This time of the year, there’s too much focus on where do we sit in the standings. “You can lose track of what’s important and what’s important is that we win the first possession against Northwest and then the second and the third, and after 40 minutes and 90 to 100 possessions, if you’ve taken care of each pos session the way you want, you’ll look up at the scoreboard and see that you’ve won the game.” lo cal dining foo d in -de pth re po rti ng foo d in -de pth re po rti ng loc al foo d high sc hoo l foo d in -de pth re po rti ng foo d in -de pth re po rti ng high sc hoo l in -de pth re po rti ng foo d in -de pth re po rti ng lo cal sports foo d sports foo d foo d high sc hoo l foo d sports foo d high sc hoo l foo d lo cal sports lo cal sce ne foo d sce ne foo d loc al sce ne loc al loc al foot ball loc al dining pu zzles dining loc al pu zzles loc al dining loc al dining pu zzles dining loc al dining loc al foot ball loc al pu zzles loc al foot ball loc al coupo ns lo cal coupo ns lo cal sports coupo ns sports lo cal sports lo cal coupo ns lo cal sports lo cal News foo d News foo d News in -de pth re po rti ng foo d in -de pth re po rti ng loc al foo d high sc hoo l foo d in -de pth re po rti ng foo d in -de pth re po rti ng high sc hoo l in -de pth re po rti ng foo d in -de pth re po rti ng dining lo cal sports News sports News dining sports dining foo d sports foo d News foo d News sports News foo d News foo d high sc hoo l foo d sports foo d high sc hoo l foo d lo cal sports lo cal sce ne News sce ne News in -de pth re po rti ng sce ne in -de pth re po rti ng News in -de pth re po rti ng News sce ne News in -de pth re po rti ng News foo d sce ne foo d News foo d News sce ne News foo d News in -de pth re po rti ng foo d in -de pth re po rti ng sce ne in -de pth re po rti ng foo d in -de pth re po rti ng News in -de pth re po rti ng News foo d News in -de pth re po rti ng News sce ne News in -de pth re po rti ng News foo d News in -de pth re po rti ng News loc al sce ne loc al foot ball News foot ball News loc al foot ball loc al pu zzles dining pu zzles dining loc al pu zzles loc al dining loc al dining pu zzles dining loc al dining sports pu zzles sports dining sports dining pu zzles dining sports dining foot ball pu zzles foot ball loc al foot ball loc al pu zzles loc al foot ball loc al coupo ns lo cal coupo ns lo cal sports coupo ns sports lo cal sports lo cal coupo ns lo cal sports lo cal we feedback value your Nobody del ive rs li ke we do .

NWF STATE AT GC WOMEN: 5:30 P.M. MEN: 7:30 P.M. Gulf Coast teams to host NWF State tonight important aspect of today’s twinbill is that it’s at Joe Tom King. “They’re very anxious to play at home,” Wade said. “We’ve got 18 games on the road under our belt and everybody wants to be in their own dugout, on their own field and in front of their own fans.” Mitts and Katie Beth Gordon, both 4-5, will be the starting pitchers against Wal lace, and Wade said she’d also like to see reliever Ashton May get some time in the circle. “We went three and three on the weekend; Friday and Saturday we got some momentum and then we did not play well on Sunday for some reason,” Wade said. “It would be nice to put a couple of wins together and get on a roll.” Note : Neither Gulf Coast team was ranked in the state Top 10 polls released on Tuesday. St. Johns River is No. 1 in baseball and Central Florida No. 1 in softball. S OFTBALL from Page C1 The industry sure hopes Heroy and the Ganassi orga nization are correct. Gordon, the four-time champion and face of NASCAR for the last two decades, is retiring from fulltime competition at the end of the year. His departure as Larson is taking off almost makes the cycle full circle: Larson grew up a Gordon fan — he periodically posts throwback pictures on social media of him dressed head-to-toe in Gordon’s rainbow-themed gear as a child — and Gordon has spent the last three years praising Larson. Gordon has given the 22-year-old advice, and he pulled him aside after hard racing in the closing laps at Chicago in September to explain some things Larson could have done differently. Larson, once Gordon’s biggest fan, now has Gordon as the biggest Larson fan. “I want Kyle Larson to be exactly who he is now, to never change,” Gordon said. “But that’s going to be hard. I always tell guys like Kyle, who’s been catapulted into this Sprint Cup Series at a high level who have got a lot of talent, you can’t pre pare for what it’s like to be famous, to do autographs, to take pictures, to win at the highest level. You don’t know what that’s going to be like.” The swell is slowly grow ing around Larson, who wel comed a son in December with his longtime girlfriend and is balancing fatherhood with his growing popularity. He’ll be the star of a national commercial for sponsor Tar get that will debut during the Daytona 500. Target reallocated some of its spending on Ganassi’s IndyCar program this sea son to focus on marketing Larson and three-time Indy Car champion Scott Dixon. In addition to Larson’s commercial, the retailer is launching a TeamTarget. com hub on Sunday that will chronicle the season and host a series of addi tional videos featuring both drivers. So as NASCAR begins the transition to the younger drivers who will carry the sport for the next decade, Larson is readying himself for the ride. “I definitely paid atten tion (last year) to people doubting what we were going to be able to do,” he said. “That fueled that into our team as ‘Let’s go out and prove them wrong.’ I feel like we did that. But I didn’t let it get to me or anything like that. ... I hope I’m the next big thing. We’ll just have to wait and see, I guess. I’m sure there are a lot of other ‘next big things’ coming up. I hope I can stand out as that guy.” “I hope I’m the next big thing. We’ll just have to wait and see, I guess. I’m sure there are a lot of other ‘next big things’ coming up. I hope I can stand out as that guy.” — Kyle Larson Sprint Cup driver LARS ON from Page C1 Miles: IndyCar on schedule INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Less than a month after the season opener was can celed, IndyCar Series chief Mark Miles outlined a new vision for scheduling Tues day that includes more races, fit perfectly between football seasons in hopes of adding interest and fans. “We know that in the past whatever our average (television) ratings declined 30 percent after Labor Day and we know why,” said Miles, the CEO of Hulman & Co. College football and the NFL, the rat ings king of sports, dominate the airwaves in September and October. So rather than compete against football, Miles believes the smarter play is to fill in the gap. Ideally, he wants a 20-race schedule that begins one or two weeks after the Super Bowl and ends Labor Day weekend, a few days earlier than the NFL’s first regularseason game and at a time most of college football’s best teams are playing non-con ference games. This year, IndyCar has 16 races between March 29 and Aug. 30. Last month, orga nizers canceled the 17th race, the opener scheduled for March 8 in Brazil. Financially, Miles said, the series had protections from taking a big hit. But the delayed start will keep the series off the grid even longer, hurting a series that hasn’t held a race since late August. A longer season and shorter offseason would keep IndyCar on the radar, and series officials could have more flexibility to avoid other scheduling conflicts such as Final Four weekend and the first week of Major League Baseball. Plus, they could frontload the schedule with an international race or two and even add a warm-weather venue in the U.S., such as Phoenix. Drivers like the concept. “I think 22 (races) would be a great num ber,” said Scott Dixon, the three-time series champ with Chip Ganassi Racing. “But I love racing and if we do it more often, that’s great.” Miles also would like to change the series’ television strategy. He said he is talk ing to ABC and NBC Sports Network about dropping the “exclusive rights” clause that exists in the current contracts. ABC is the sole broadcaster on the network side, while NBC holds the rights to all cable telecasts.

When the Indiana Pacers acquired Evan Turner from rebuilding Phila delphia, they hoped it would provide the scoring punch to beat out Miami and reach the NBA Finals. It didn’t, and Turner is now in Boston. Now the Pacers are trying to get in the postseason, two games out of eighth place and seeking a spark that could sling-shot them past others down the bottom of the playoff ladder. Bird promises to be as aggressive as when his team on top. “We’re always looking to improve the team and obviously there’s a lot of improvement that needs to be done,” the Pacers’ president said recently. “So we’ll look around the league and talk to a lot of different people and see what’s out there and hopefully we can do something that makes us better.” If not, he said, he will wait until the summer. That’s what every NBA team has to decide in the next couple of days. The trade deadline is Thursday afternoon, and with many teams in contention, the question is whether that makes them more conservative or cautious. Help could be found in the hours before the NBA returns from its AllStar break. But some will be hesi tant to tinker with so little time left in the season. The Turner deal, in which Indiana traded popular veteran Danny Granger, certainly didn’t help its locker room chemistry. Plus, teams can plug holes by simply opening their wallets, without costing any assets. Houston signed Josh Smith after he was waived by Detroit, Amare Stoudemire is headed to the Mav ericks once he clears waivers, and other veterans could be bought out and become free agents after the deadline. One of the most intriguing moves could involve Ray Allen, who will have contending suitors if he opts to play after sitting out all season. The teams most motivated to deal might be the disappointing ones. Brooklyn probably can’t find a taker for Deron Williams with all his inju ries and dollars left on the $98.5 mil lion contract he signed in 2012, but was close to moving Brook Lopez earlier this season. Denver’s rocky season should have contenders call ing to inquire about Arron Afflalo, Ty Lawson or Wilson Chandler. The right move can help some one surge through spring. The wrong one could mean an early start on summer. Don’t count on top stars changing teams — none has at the deadline since Utah surprisingly sent Williams to the Nets on the eve of the 2011 one. Teams more likely trade at this point to clear cap space for the summer, which is why the New York Knicks could seek a deal for Jose Calderon after already shipping out guards J.R. Smith and Iman Shumpert. Cleveland acquired them and, along with getting Timofey Mozgov from Denver in a separate deal, per haps proved the best moves for this season were already made. Dallas acted quickly to acquire Rajon Rondo from Boston in Decem ber, not long before Memphis capitalized on the Celtics’ youth move ment to deal for Jeff Green. For Golden State and Atlanta, the current NBA leaders, their winning moves maybe came long ago. The Warriors got Andrew Bogut from Milwaukee at the 2012 deadline to provide some muscle in the rugged West. Five months later, the Hawks acquired Kyle Korver from Chicago, and he could be headed for the best perimeter-shooting season in NBA history. “When I got traded to Atlanta I was coming from Chicago and I wasn’t really all that excited about it, to be honest with you. But all the people that Danny Ferry kept on bringing in, they’ve been not just good basket ball people, but good people,” Korver said. “When I was a free agent two sum mers ago, I chose to come back. We had some opportunities to go to some teams that already were more estab lished and could win, but I just really believed in what Atlanta was building and what they were doing. I could see my role in it and I just wanted to be a part of that. I never thought that it would come together this quickly.” That’s the lightning in a bottle every team is hoping to catch. NB A TRADE DEADLINE A MARE STOUDEMIRE NB A BRIEF S George K arl is Kings’ third coach of season SACRAMENTO, Calif. — After more than 1,100 wins, a trip to the NBA Finals, and a Coach of the Year award in his final season in Denver, George Karl still feels he has some unfinished business in the NBA. So Karl left a cushy job as a television analyst to take over one of the league’s least successful teams when he was introduced Tuesday as the new coach of a Sacramento Kings team that has lost the second most games in the NBA over the past nine seasons. “I’ve missed the gym and I love the game,” Karl said. “I wanted one more shot to try to win a championship.” He is joining a team that is far from that level, having not made the playoffs nor had a winning record since 2005-06. Karl is the third coach this season for the Kings, taking over for Tyrone Corbin, who lasted just two months after replacing the fired Michael Malone. The second in-season change comes after general manager Pete D’Alessandro committed to Corbin for the rest of the season. But after watching the team go 7-21 under Corbin following a promising 11-13 start under Malone, D’Alessandro decided to make another change to a coach he was familiar with from his time in the front office in Denver when Karl was on the sideline. The 63-year-old Karl, a two-time cancer survivor, is one of nine coaches in league history to surpass 1,000 wins. He has 1,131 victories as a head coach, with stops in Cleveland, Golden State, Seattle and Milwaukee, earning a reputation for turning around teams. Borrego to keep interim post through season ORLANDO — Orlando Magic interim coach James Borrego will remain in that post at least through the end of the season. In addition, the team announced Tuesday that it has added Igor Kokoskov as an assistant coach. Borrego took over after Jacque Vaughn was fired earlier this month following a 15-37 start to his third season. Vaughn’s assistant coaches Brett Gunning and Wes Unseld Jr. were also dismissed, along with advanced scouting manager Zack Guthrie. Laron Profit and Jay Hernandez, who both formerly worked in player development, were previously elevated to serve as Borrego’s assistants. NB A CALENDAR Thursday — Trade deadline (2 p.m. CST). April 15 — Last day of regular season. April 18 — Playoffs begin. GEOR G E K ARL 1,131 wins in his NBA coaching career JAME S BORRE G O

The Ray Thurber Kennel 73-pounder won three of five at Ebro last summer, and recently gained his sixth win at Sarasota to return to Grade A. He encounters Martin Garcia, a 12-race winner at Ebro who last week notched his eighth win in 19 starts. Flying Honeydew and Flying Cheech, a pair of Watson Racing Kennel dogs, also are in a strong field. CJ’s Mack has two wins and a second by a nose entering the sixth race at Derby Lane this afternoon. The 10th could be a battle between R Johnny B Good and Mega Powerpack, who both have excelled their last three starts. The evening program’s eighth race is over 3-8 mile and features HKF Crazy Horse, Mega Nerfetta and Penrose Racey, some of the top distance dogs at the track. No. 12 Louisville suspends Chris Jones LOUISVILLE, Ky. — Louisville has suspended senior guard Chris Jones for a violation of team rules, leaving the No. 12 Cardinals without their assists leader and third-leading scorer for Wednesday night’s Atlantic Coast Conference game at Syracuse. The school’s brief release Tuesday night did not spec ify what rule Jones broke or how long his suspension will last, only that he will not travel with Louisville to face the Orange (16-9, 7-5). Jones is averaging 13.6 points, 3.9 rebounds and a team-best 3.7 assists per game for the Cardinals (20-5, 8-4 ACC), who aim to bounce back from Saturday’s home loss to North Carolina State. Cowboys ponder franchise tag for Bryant INDIANAPOLIS — The Dallas Cowboys are still trying to come up with the perfect pitch to Dez Bryant. With free agency looming and a March 2 deadline to use their franchise tag, the Cowboys are still debating whether to put the tag on Bryant, their top receiver, even as they try to work out a long-term deal. They still hope to keep running back DeMarco Murray, and they’re hoping to find enough cap room to do both. Dallas’ most pressing decision involves Bryant, who can become an unrestricted free agent in three weeks. Last season, the 26-year-old receiver had 88 catches, 1,320 yards and a league-high 16 TD receptions. Silence, hint for Mayweather-Pacquiao fight Promoter Bob Arum was uncharacteristically silent Tuesday, amid indications that the next few days will determine whether Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Manny Pacquiao share a ring together May 2. Arum repeatedly declined to comment about the possible megafight during an appearance at a media day for Chinese boxer Zou Shiming at trainer Freddie Roach’s gym in Hollywood. “I know nothing,” said Arum, who is Pacquiao’s promoter. The chairman of casino operator MGM Grand, though, at the same time dropped a tantalizing hint about the possible fight during a conference call with analysts to discuss the company’s fourth-quarter earnings. “We hope it’s a big, big fight,” James Murren said. “If it is the fight we hope it is, then it is the biggest fight.” Area EVENTS ST A T S H EET In The BLEACHERS SPOR TS Briefs On The AIR Women’s basketball : Northwest at Gulf Coast 5:30 p.m. Men’s basketball : Northwest at Gulf Coast 7:30 p.m. Wrestling : Wewahitchka at Rutherford 4 p.m. College softball : LBW at Gulf Coast Softball : Rutherford at Franklin County 5 p.m. Track and eld : North Bay Haven at Liberty County 3 p.m. Page C4 | The News Herald | Wednesday, February 18, 2015

AP Tennessee’s Willie Carmichael III (24) reaches for a loose ball as Kentucky’s Devin Booker (1) and Willie Cauley-Stein defend in the second half on Tuesday. MAL ONE from Page C1 “It’s just a bunch of guys that played with hearts full of love. That’s all it is,” Welch said. “I’m so proud of their effort and enthusiasm. It was a group of guys that were willing to fight for each other for 32 minutes. At the end of the day, that’s what it’s all about.” Malone needed to fight after a redhot start by Graceville, which led 8-0 after back-to-back 3-pointers from the left corner by Octavian Mount. The lead was 13-7 after one quarter and Graceville extended the margin in the second quarter. Deangelo Bell scored on a pretty reverse layup fol lowed by a steal and two from Quajohn Andrews. A free throw by Bell made it 24-14 with 3:56 to halftime, but Malone stormed back with a 15-2 run to close out the first half. Johnson scored the first seven points of the run, hitting two free throws, knocking in a 3-pointer in tran sition following a turnover, and then hitting a pull-up jumper. That cut the deficit to four. Two baskets by Dillard tied the game, with an offensive rebound and putback by Jamar Henderson putting Malone ahead. Another basket by Dil lard after a Graceville turnover made it 29-26 at the break. Johnson opened the second half with a 3-pointer, then hit another jumper moments later to put Malone up 36-29. Graceville got back to within four thanks to five straight points from Mount to make it 40-36 with two minutes left in the third quarter. But Malone again ended the quarter strong. A driving basket by Dillard, a tran sition two from Lockett, a putback by Taqualan Brelove, and two free throws from Johnson comprised an 8-0 Malone run and it was 48-36 going into the fourth quarter. Graceville could not get closer than 11 the rest of the way, as Malone sealed the win by making 11-13 from the freethrow line in the final quarter. Mount led Graceville with 18 points, followed by Derrick White with 10. Despite coming into the game 0-2 against Graceville, Johnson and his teammates believed the third matchup would be different. “We lost to them twice, but we knew we didn’t play the way we were capable,” Johnson said. “We knew we could play much better defense, so we went into it with a lot of confidence.” Much of the confidence surely comes from the brilliant play of John son, who Welch said has become a true leader as the season has progressed. “These last three games, he’s played like a senior who isn’t ready to go home,” Welch said. “He’s stepping into that senior leadership position and doing everything that a leader is supposed to do.” Malone (20-9) will host Paxton on Friday for the region championship.

NEW YORK (AP) — Alex Rodriguez issued a five-para graph handwritten apology “for the mistakes that led to my suspension” on Tuesday without detailing specifics about his use of performanceenhancing drugs. Ready to report back to the Yankees following a seasonlong suspension for violating baseball’s drug agreement and labor contract, Rodriguez apologized to team officials in person during a meeting at the ballpark on Feb. 10. They suggested he hold a news conference before the start of spring training this Friday and offered the use of Yan kee Stadium, but Rodriguez declined. Rodriguez held an apolo getic news conference in 2009 at the team’s facility in Tampa after he admitted using banned PEDs while with Texas from 2001-03, before Major League Baseball had a drug agreement with pen alties. But he did not want to face questions from media about his latest involvement with PEDs — although he could be required to testify if his cousin, Yuri Sucart, and former University of Miami pitching coach Lazaro Col lazo, go to trial on charges they committed crimes for their involvement with the Biogenesis of America drug clinic. Rodriguez admitted in court documents he used PEDs. Commissioner Bud Selig suspended Rodriguez for 211 games in August 2013, citing conduct from 2010-12 uncovered during MLB’s investigation of Biogenesis, which was based in Coral Gables, not far from Rodri guez’s home. Rodriguez directed the players’ association to file a grievance and filed a lawsuit against the Yankees’ team doctor, accusing him of mis handling his medical care. After a hearing, arbitrator Fredric Horowitz reduced the penalty to the 2014 season, finding clear and convincing evidence” Rodriguez used three banned substances and twice tried to obstruct the baseball’s drug investigation. All the while proclaiming his innocence, Rodriguez sued MLB and the union in an effort to overturn the penalty, then dropped the litigation and accepted the suspension. He is due to report to the Yankees on Feb. 25 and start workouts the following day. Rodriguez addressed his statement “to the fans” and said “I take full responsibility for the mistakes that led to my suspension for the 2014 season.” “I regret that my actions made the situation worse than it needed to be,” he said. “To Major League Baseball, the Yankees, the Steinbrenner family, the players’ association and you, the fans, I can only say I’m sorry.” Rodriguez said “I accept the fact that many of you will not believe my apology or anything that I say at this point. I understand why, and that’s on me.” “It was gracious of the Yankees to offer me the use of Yankee Stadium for this apology but I decided the next time I am in Yankee Stadium, I should be in pinstripes doing my job,” he said. Rodriguez made clear he doesn’t intend to publicly explain why he got involved with Biogenesis. The clinic’s owner, Anthony Bosch, was sentenced to four years in prison on Tuesday after pleading guilty in October to a charge of conspiracy to dis tribute testosterone. Pitchers and catchers report this week to start season The Associated Press Washington’s star-stud ded rotation reports to Florida. Matt Harvey contin ues his comeback with the New York Mets. Joe Mad don takes over the Chicago Cubs, and Russell Martin gets a closer look at Toron to’s pitching staff. While much of the North east and Midwest navigates bitter cold and piles of snow, spring training begins in earnest this week when pitchers and catchers file into camps in Florida and Arizona. World Champion San Francisco is one of four National League teams slated to begin on Thurs day, and most of the majors’ pitchers and backstops will be in place by this weekend. Following several mas sive free-agent deals and blockbuster trades, there are plenty of compelling story lines heading into baseball’s first spring training since Rob Manfred took over as commissioner in January. The Nationals strength ened their already solid rotation by signing free agent Max Scherzer to a $210 million, seven-year contract. Now the pressure is on Scherzer to deliver on that big deal and help the reigning NL East champi ons advance deep into the playoffs for the first time since the franchise moved to Washington. While Scherzer will attract plenty of attention this spring, it looks as if Tan ner Roark will have to adjust to a bullpen role after he had a breakout season a year ago, winning 15 games with a sparking 2.85 ERA. The right-hander is a nice insur ance policy for manager Matt Williams should any of the starters get hurt. Harvey missed all of last season for his recovery from elbow ligament-replacement surgery, and got an early start on spring training by reporting to New York’s facil ity about two weeks before the first scheduled workout. He is hoping to be ready for opening day, but the Mets could decide on a slow and steady approach for the ace right-hander. It’s a brand new day for the Cubs when they report to Arizona after a banner offseason that included the addition of Maddon, who had a 754-705 record during his successful nine-year run with Tampa Bay. Cubs President Theo Epstein pounced on the quirky skipper after he opted out of his contract with the Rays, dumping Rick Rent eria after just one season. Epstein is counting on Mad don to ease the transition of the organization’s impres sive stable of prospects to the rigors of the majors. The Cubs were one of baseball’s most active teams over the winter. Same goes for Toronto, which is seeking its first playoff appearance since it won the World Series in 1993. Martin was one of the majors’ most prized free agents over the winter, and he opted for an $82 million, five-year contract with the Blue Jays. The three-time All-Star, who was born in Toronto and raised in Mon treal, hit .290 with 11 home runs and 67 RBIs with Pitts burgh last season, helping the Pirates to a second straight playoff berth.

BASEBALL Page C6 | The News Herald | Wednesday, February 18, 2015 “I accept the fact that many of you will not believe my apology or anything that I say at this point. I understand why and that’s on me.” ALEX RODRIGUEZ New York Yankees A-Rod writes apology, turns down news conference ‘I can only say I’m sorry’ PITTSBURGH (AP) — The Pittsburgh Pirates have spent the last two seasons transforming themselves from laughingstock to legitimate contender. The next step might be the hardest. Yet the Pirates begin spring training this week confident they’ve made the necessary moves to produce a third straight playoff appearance — one they hope lasts longer than a mere cameo. “We feel good about our additions,” general manager Neal Huntington said. Even if those additions have a largely familiar feel. Pittsburgh re-signed starter Francisco Liriano with the most expensive free agent contract in club history. A.J. Burnett, whose arrival in 2012 augured a significant and vital change in mindset, left millions on the table in Philadelphia to make one last run in a place where he revitalized his once flagging career. Rather than wait for the inevitable, the Pirates traded for catcher Francisco Cervelli before Toronto went deep in the vault to lure All-Star Russell Martin to his native Canada. The club’s payroll will near a team record $90 million in 2015. While its spending still ranks near the bottom of the National League, payroll has more than doubled in the last five years. “We’ve got to be efficient and effective but our margin for error is a little larger,” Huntington said. “We’ve allo cated resources to our bench and we’ve built a deeper club because there is more money available to us.” Huntington simply hopes it’s money well spent. The Pirates still have several key questions as they look to keep pace with St. Louis and fend off the resurgent Chicago Cubs in perhaps the most competitive division in baseball. Pirates striving for 2015 playoff spot Reds open spring training looking for new rotation CINCINNATI (AP) — The Reds open spring training today with a couple of openings in the starting rotation — an unusual situation for Cincinnati. Starters Mat Latos and Alfredo Simon were traded in the offseason, a significant overhaul to what was their strength last season. Cincinnati’s rotation was the one con stant in a disappointing, 86-loss season that saw the offense struggle and the bullpen implode. Cincinnati upgraded the bullpen by adding Burke Badenhop and Kevin Gregg. First baseman Joey Votto is expected back from a left leg injury that sidelined him for most of last season. That leaves a lot of the focus on filling out the rotation in February and March. “We feel we have a competitive team,” manager Bryan Price said. “This isn’t a rebuilt situation. So we have to feel as confident as we can one-through-five in our rotation.” There are even some questions about No. 1 as pitch ers and catchers report today in Goodyear, Ariz. Their first workout will be on Thursday, with the first full-squad workout scheduled for Feb. 24. Johnny Cueto became the Reds’ first 20-game winner since 1988. He’s in the final year of his deal. The Reds want to keep him but aren’t sure whether they’ll be able to get an agreement on another big contract. He’s followed in the rotation by Homer Bailey (9-5, 3.71 ERA in 23 starts) and Mike Leake (11-13, 3.70 ERA in 33 starts). The Reds are hoping that Anthony DeSclafani, who was acquired from Miami as part of the trade for Latos, will fill one of the two open spots. DeSclafani went 2-2 with a 6.27 ERA in five starts and eight relief appearances. Left-hander Tony Cingrani was 2-8 with a 4.55 ERA in 11 starts and two relief appearances last season, when he was sidelined by a sore shoulder. HOMER BA I LEY Report: Barry Zito returning to A’s on minor league deal BARRY Z I TO AP Alex Rodriguez was suspended for 211 games in August 2013. OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — Left-hander Barry Zito is returning to the Oak land Athletics with a minor contract that includes an invitation to major league spring training, two peo ple with knowledge of the agreement said Tuesday. The people, speaking on condition of anonym ity because the A’s hadn’t announced the signing, said Zito would receive a $1 million, one-year con tract if added to the 40-man roster. The deal was first reported by the San Fran cisco Chronicle. Oakland’s pitchers and catchers report to the club’s new spring train ing home in Mesa, Ariz., on Thursday, with the first workout the following day. Zito, 36, did not pitch last season. He was taken by Oakland in the first round of the 1999 amateur draft and began his major league career with the A’s the fol lowing year. He signed a $126 million, seven-year contract before the 2007 season to join the San Francisco Giants but had a largely disappointing stint across the bay. He was left off the postseason roster for all three rounds in a 2010 championship run, then helped San Francisco win another World Series in 2012. Zito could earn $175,000 in performance bonuses: $25,000 each for five, 10, 15, 18, 20, 23 and 25 starts. While he could earn a rotation spot early in the season, Oakland hopes to have a pair of start ers back by June as they return from elbow ligamentreplacement surgery: Jar rod Parker and A.J. Griffin.
